    • This foam stops bullets cold and pulverizes them to dust

      Foam body armor? Even armor-piercing bullets cannot get through this foam. And the foam doesn’t just stop bullets. It destroys them…this foam decimates bullets into dust. North Carolina State University Professor Afsaneh Rabiei led the team that created the amazing foam. This is not ordinary foam like the kind used for shaving, for example. This is a special type of foam called composite metal foams, or CMF. The military and law enforcement could use this kind of foam for advanced, ultra light body armor to protect personnel. And this research team has other foams up its sleeve that have the potential to keep military and first responders safe from radiation and extreme heat too. BULLET V. FOAM

    • Drunk driver gets unusual jail sentence as a reminder of woman he killed

      A Texas man who cut short the life of an “extraordinary” woman in a drunken driving crash will be reminded of his crime by sitting in a jail cell on the anniversary of her death for the next nine years. Travis Elwell, 23, of Mesquite, was sentenced last week to serve 120 days in jail for the 2015 death of Emily Javadi, 34, who was killed while loading items into her car after a workout at Dallas’ Cole Park. Elwell, who had a blood alcohol content of 0.175 at the time, more than twice the legal limit, was speeding when his BMW crashed into Javadi’s Lexus, sending her into a metal pole. As part of a plea deal arranged by Javadi’s parents and prosecutors, Elwell will also serve one week in jail on the anniversary of Javadi’s death on Feb. 10, 2015, for the next nine years, WFAA reports.

      Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa want to set the record straight on what really happens between the sheets. Less than two weeks after Ripa claimed her husband is “mean” after sex, she revisited the topic on Wednesday during “Live with Kelly.” “I’m sorry, I was joking, this is a funny, irreverent show, I didn’t realize it would become trending news,” said the 46-year-old host. Ripa first made the shocking claim during a Feb. 9 taping, which was co-hosted with Consuelos. “He’s immediately mean to me afterwards and I don’t like that,” said Ripa at the time while sitting next to her husband. “I think it’s bizarre. He becomes short with me, like irritated.” “I’m like, ‘Oh, now you’re irritated?’” added

    • This hunter waged a war on feral cats. Now he says he has become the target of attacks.

      For years, Sam Wood has been a proponent of hunting and killing invasive species, such as wild hogs, that can threaten the native ecosystems. His Facebook page is filled with photos showing the 48-year-old outdoorsman taking down sparrows and starlings, pigeons and rats. But Wood’s most recent mark seems to have made him the target: feral cats. It started earlier this month, when the Wisconsin resident shared a stock photo of a cat in a trap. “Some may find this offensive but the truth is feral cats are a huge problem,” he wrote online. “I know this post will cause some backlash from the Disney educated but by putting the truth out there and not hiding we can educate some folks. “Back in the

    • This U.S. Senator was just sh*t-talked by a kid, and he couldn't deal

      My roughly 10-year-old cousin once wanted to take me on in ping-pong, using the table in my basement. Sure, I said. I let him get up 11-1, because I'm much older than he is, and what the hell do I care?  But then he started talking shit. Like, a surprising, not-marginal amount of shit for a 10-year-old. So I beat him. I beat him 21-11. I scored 20 straight points. I probably said something I either don't remember or have blocked out of my mind because I didn't want to remember the taunts I hurled at a kid less than half my age.  Anyway, the takeaway here is that nothing good comes from getting shit-talked, as an adult, by a kid. As both I and Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton now understand.  SEE ALSO:

      DEAR AMY: My former wife and I divorced after 26 years of marriage. She has refused to communicate with me. We have twins in their late 20s — a daughter and a son. Although neither is married, each wants to eventually get married, and so I anticipate weddings. Our son graduates law school this spring. He may feel awkward about having both his parents attend his graduation. Last year, he went through a terrible crisis — the death of one of his best friends. It was terribly hard on him, yet his mom never talked to me about how we might help him. Such occasions — a grief-stricken child, and a grown child’s life event — call for parents to come together. I want to talk with my former wife about the
