65 Skulls Found in Mass Grave at Site of Gruesome War Crime
(SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina ) — Forensic experts say they have retrieved the remains of at least 65 victims from a mass grave in central Bosnia, the site of one of the most gruesome crimes of the country’s 1992-95 war. Lejla Cengic from Bosnia’s Missing Persons Institute says Tuesday that remains including 65 skulls have been found since September 7 in the grave at the Koricanske Stijene cliff near Mount Vlasic. She says they’re believed to belong to some of over 220 non-Serb civilians executed there by Bosnian Serb forces on August 21, 1992. Most of those killed were taken from Serb-run detention...

The Humble Honeybee
Honeybees are incomparable little creatures. Allow me to tell you why: Honeybees and humans share many things in common: we socialize, dance, eat honey, touch, feel, mimic one another, sleep, enjoy nicotine, caffeine, vote and we both get sick. After a queen honeybee lays a couple million eggs, she begins to produce fewer pheromones (or chemical scents), which cause the worker bees to feed half a dozen larvae royal jelly or pure protein as they begin rearing a new queen. It’s up to the scout bees to locate a new site to move the existing queen and thousands of workers to create with their beeswax a new hive. The bee...

A stunning time-lapse video of the Grand Canyon shows the carved formation as it may have looked millennia ago — but instead of water, it’s filled with what has the appearance of an ocean of fog. Filmmaker Harun Mehmedinovic has set up his camera at the canyon 30 different times since 2015. During one visit, he managed to witness and film the dramatic changes of a full cloud inversion, which occurs when warm air traps cold air beneath and creates a sea of fog.

America has lost a princess. When Carrie Fisher passed, most Americans were quick to point out the impact Fisher had on cinema in the pivotal Star Wars role of Princess Leia; in theater, with her quirky one woman show; and in print, with numerous bestsellers laced with wit, humor and candor. But the mental health community has lost its queen, a vocal, ruthlessly honest and vulnerable advocate, who normalized mental illness and provided a hopeful example of a person living with bipolar disorder and working her recovery. One of Fisher’s greatest lines came in a 2009 interview with the Associated Press when she said, &l...

Bogeyman (also spelled bogieman, boogeyman, or boogie man) is a common allusion to a mythical creature in many cultures used by adults to frighten children into good behavior. This monster has no specific appearance, and conceptions about it can vary drastically from household to household within the same community. Parents may tell their children that if they misbehave, the bogeyman will get them. Bogeymen may target a specific mischief—for instance, a bogeyman that punishes children who suck their thumbs—or general misbehavior, depending on what purpose needs serving.
