Ann Makosinski was just another teenager with another science project when she joined her local science fair in Victoria, Canada, last year. Her invention, a flashlight that is powered solely from hand heat, took second place at the competition.

Ann, 16, and her parents, both of whom are HAM radio operators and like to fiddle with electronics, were satisfied with that result.

"It's a very simple project," said Arthur Makosinski, Ann's father. "It has four electrical components. Let's move on and do something different."

But had Ann left her project in Victoria, situated just 25 miles north of Washington State, the world may have missed out on a light source that doesn't use batterie

The first time, it happened almost by accident.

Just hours after delivery, a baby born with HIV in Mississippi was given high doses of three antiretroviral drugs. More than three years later, doctors say the little girl has no evidence of the life-threatening disease in her blood, despite being off medication for nearly two years.

Now doctors say another child born with the virus appears to be free of HIV after receiving similar treatment. The case report was presented at the annual Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections in Boston this week.

The girl was delivered at Miller Children's Hospital in Long Beach, California, last summer to a mother with AIDS. Doctors gav

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia -- Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, the passenger jet missing since early Saturday, may have changed course and turned back toward Kuala Lumpur, military officials said at a news conference Sunday.

But the pilot appears to have given no signal to authorities that he was turning around, the officials said, attributing the change of course to indications from radar data. The latest revelation added to the questions that have puzzled authorities since the Boeing 777-200ER, carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members, went missing while flying from the Malaysian capital to Beijing:

What happened to the plane? Why was no distress signal issued? Who exactly was aboard?

Two sisters in Edmond, Oklahoma were having trouble sleeping, fraught with worry over whether their home was safe from crime. Their mother even began showing them the locked windows and doors each night and allowed them to sleep with baseball bat under the covers.

Then, Lt. Paul Barbour, on his night shift patrol for the local police department, took a few minutes to pen a hand-written note to the girls assuring them that "everything looked good" in their neighborhood. He taped the note to the door, having learned about the trouble from his wife, who was a friend of their mother.

The note did the trick, and the sisters, ages 9 and 11, are now sleeping with the lights off again.

When 52-year-old Otis Orth got Amber, a golden retriever, for his birthday back in December, he didn't realize that his loyal companion would end up saving his life, the Alaska Dispatch reported.

Orth, who lives in a homestead in Trapper Creek, Alaska, took his snowmachine and Amber into town to get supplies on Sunday afternoon, according to KTNA. There was an unseen dip in the road which caused the machine to buck, and sent them flying almost 50 feet away.

Orth was barely able to move at all and had sunk so far into the snow that he couldn't be seen from the trail -- making it difficult for passersby to spot him. He and Amber spent the night in the snow, cuddling together for warmth.

The woman who drove her minivan into the Atlantic Ocean, endangering her three children until rescuers charged into the water to pull them out, has been charged with three counts of attempted first-degree murder, authorities in Florida said Friday.

The woman, Ebony Wilkerson, 32, was also charged with three counts of aggravated child abuse, Volusia County Sheriff Ben Johnson said.

As she steered into heavy surf, investigators said, she locked the doors of the minivan, rolled up the windows and told the children to close their eyes and go to sleep.

“You’re supposed to protect your children at all costs,” the sheriff said. “You’re not supposed to be trying to kill your children.”

ULTRA HD 4K VIDEO Now Available For Consumers With Sony Handycam FDR-AX100/B 4K Ultra

Four times the highest HD video, the new 4K video is astounding and it is the future.

Seems like only a few years ago we were all wondering about HD. Well, we've traveled in our time machine and have arrived, thank you very much. The future is here and even though this may feel like an ad for Sony, it is not. I simply wanted to talk about the new camera so many have mentioned.

The FDR-AX100/B is Sony’s first compact 4K consumer camcorder. SmartReview previewed this model at CES 2014 in Las Vegas. It received more awards than any other camcorder, and is SmartReview’s top camcorder for 2014.

Twenty-five years ago, a mother and her baby nearly died in a car accident on a highway in California after being hit by a drunk driver. Passerby Shelly Cumley made sure that didn't happen.

Cumley, a Seattle resident, had been driving with a friend when they came across the immediate aftermath of the accident, News 10 reported. When she approached one of the cars, she found a severely injured Roanna Farley and her 7-month-old daughter, Nicole, in the backseat.

"I reached in and grabbed Nicole, she looked perfect," Cumley recalled to the news outlet. "I held her up to Roanna and said, 'Look, here is your baby she's fine, she's beautiful.'"

Cumley traveled to the hospital in an ambula

Chicago's Trio Animal Foundation (TAF) helps shelters, rescue groups and individuals pay the medical bills of homeless animals. The group is named after Trio, a little pup who, after being used as a bait dog, had her leg bitten off when she was just 4 weeks old. Although she was given a 10 percent chance to live, Trio beat the odds and made a miraculous recovery.

Now, TAF President Sue Naiden is giving more dogs another chance:

Many of the animals in TAF's program have never had a good day [their] whole life. They come in scared, confused, defeated and look as if they are resigned to a life of misery. When they are finally bathed, vetted and given the respect and love that they have al

A 14-year-old girl was struck and killed by a train after she was allegedly pulled into its vacuum while retrieving a dropped cell phone.

Jenna Betti, 14, was struck and killed by a freight train in Martinez, Calif., Sunday after reportedly trying to recover a dropped cell phone on the tracks.

"She dropped her phone and went back to retrieve it," her mother, Dena Betti, posted on Facebook Sunday, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. "She didn't judge the approach, and the train creates a vacuum, we were told, and it sucks you in."

Three train operators reported seeing Jenna but were unable to stop the train in time.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.
