    • Aaron Hernandez’s Estate Is At $0; Fiancée Has Offer On North Attleboro Home

      Aaron Hernandez’s fiancée has an offer on his former home in North Attleboro, Mass., and a court gave her the right to close the deal as soon as possible after she and her attorney filed an affadavit Wednesday. There have been questions surrounding the estate of the former New England Patriots tight end, who recently committed suicide in his cell at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center where he was serving a life sentence for the murder of Odin Lloyd, and according to court records obtained by the Boston Herald, his estate is down to zero. Because of this, Shayanna Jenkins Hernandez will be able to seal the deal by Friday when the offer expires. Jenkins Hernandez won’t necessarily see much of the money from the house, though, as proceeds already have been attached to a wrongful death lawsuit Lloyd’s mother, Ursula Ward, filed against Hernandez in 2013.

    • Scientists have solved the 100-year-old mystery of Antarctica's Blood Falls

      It's been 106 years since Australian geologist Griffith Taylor discovered the vivid red falls flowing from the glacier named after him, onto the icy Lake Bonney. It was originally thought to be caused by red algae, but it wasn't until 2003 that it was decided the red color came from oxidized iron and water most likely draining from a 5 million-year-old saltwater lake. Now a study from the University of Alaska Fairbanks and Colorado College confirms the glacier has not only a lake underneath it but also a water system that has been flowing for a million years. The uniqueness of Blood Falls as a time capsule for ancient microbial systems fascinates scientists and gives them a way to study the possibility of life on other planets without the need to drill into ice caps.

In a scathing column for the Daily Mail, the talk show host called the social media queen and her family "talentless, publicity-crazed, unctuously self-absorbed, vacuous wastrels". It was probably no secret, and you see it on the show, I was being flashy and I was definitely materialistic before," a weeping Kim told DeGeneres on the show, explaining why she had stopped flashing her flamboyant life on social media and is now concentrating on her family.
