The Silicon Valley engineer and billionaire was briefly seen in Thailand last week, hauling a miniature submarine to the mouth of the cave just before an international dive team rescued the boys without it.
A 6-year-old girl in southern Indiana was shot in the head and killed after a gun her father was cleaning accidentally went off, according to state police. The girl, identified as Makayla S.

It was 3 a.m. and Samantha Whitney Jones' 11-week-old son was crying. So, Jones did what many mothers would do: She sat down and tried to breastfeed him.

Somehow, I got it in my head that almond croissants were for kids; that grown-up connoisseurs would stick to the plain buttery crescents. And so I put away those sweeter childish things. But we all have moments of weakness. Pilates strengthens my core, but it does little for my willpower. A while back, on my way home from class, I stopped at a bakery and found myself ogling a croissant generously topped with a golden patch of baked almond cream and some slivered nuts. I bought it, and I liked it.
