Taking care of elderly folks is a tiring and thankless job that often gets overlooked. Many adult children become caretakers for their parents and sometimes their spouse’s parents. William Spingler, a former politician in Pennsylvania, took over the duties of caring for his 103-year-old mother-in-law after his wife died in 2007. She lived in his home for eight...

We didn’t know much about the giant squid until very recently, and so much about them remains a mystery. In fact, scientists hadn’t even confirmed they existed until 2004! That doesn’t mean that people who spend a lot of time in the ocean hadn’t had encounters with them, though. James Taylor is active in water sports and one day decided to...

Even though sharks can be super scary, we don’t see them all that often. They mostly keep to themselves, despite all the bad press they get for being “monsters.” One shark recently proved that it would do almost anything for its dinner, though, and it didn’t have humans in mind. A large fish made its way into the shallow water of the beach...

By now, you may have heard of the case of Michelle Carter and Conrad Roy III. Roy was a suicidal 18-year-old who was dating Carter (then a juvenile). He would often describe his plans to Carter to kill himself, and instead of reacting as most of us would, she urged him to take his own life. This happened mainly over text message and took place over months of talking...

Though we live in a very progressive time, some people still feel it’s necessary to hide who they are because of how they might be treated by others who don’t agree with their lifestyles. Savannah, a 12-year-old girl from Utah, however, didn’t want to mask the part of herself she’s come to accept and love, so in June 2016, she came out to her...

I’ve seen plenty of people take their dogs inside pet stores, but pups shopping by themselves? Not so much. For the people who frequent the Agro Pet store in Paraí, Brazil, however, it’s a normal, everyday sight. That’s because one of its customers is a cute dog named Pituco, who loves doing all of his shopping on his own. “Everybody...

Though Father’s Day has come and gone this year, the love dads have for their babies never ends. From seeing their little ones take their first breaths to watching them grow up and create families of their own, great dads are there for nearly every step of their children’s journeys through life — so what better way to celebrate them than go back...

When we think about scientists, it’s likely that many of us initially picture a person working in a clean lab and looking at a sample through a microscope. However, that mental image doesn’t even scratch the surface of what many of these people do on a daily basis, especially when it comes to working out in the field. Biologists, archaeologists, and other...

One of the best parts about summer is going to a swimming pool or even a water park to keep cool and enjoy ourselves. Unfortunately, we often don’t consider that some people aren’t able to go to these fun places because of their physical or mental disabilities. Water parks aren’t very accessible at all for them, but one new venue is changing all...
