    Gov. John Kasich dropping out of Republican presidential race

    John Kasich is dropping out of the Republican presidential race, two sources familiar with the plan confirmed to CNN. Kasich’s decision came after he improbably became the last challenger to Donald Trump, who emerged as the presumptive GOP nominee Tuesday night when Ted Cruz dropped out. Even before winning his home state of Ohio in March, Kasich was facing pressure to get out of the race, with no clear path to victory. His campaign never became more than a spoiler […]

Facebook gave the boy $10,000 after he told the company about a flaw that allowed him to delete other people’s comments. The boy reportedly told Finnish newspaper Iltalehti that he could […]

    May the Force Be With You on May the 4th, ‘Star Wars Day’

    Perhaps appropriately for the “Star Wars” universe, the annual celebration known as May the 4th (as in “May the Force Be With You”) began with a ragtag group of fans, before being coopted by a vast empire. Capitalizing on the phrase uttered by Jedi knights in the movies, fans initiated May the 4th festivities several years ago. Not long after Disney’s 2012 acquisition of Lucasfilm, the entity responsible for “Star Wars,” it embraced the date, turning it into not only […]

    This glowing jellyfish has science lovers going crazy

    The ocean is magical. It’s also really vast and scary and shockingly uncharted. But we’re going to focus on the ‘magical’ part — like this crazy glowing jellyfish everyone is swooning about. Look at that thing: It has long tentacles that can extend straight out from the center bell, making it look at times like an alien beacon or a missing part to a spaceship from another galaxy. Scientists on NOAA’s Okeanos Explorer Vessel caught video of this creature in […]
