Some of the post-Christmas celebrants are anticipating “Russian Christmas,” which occurs Jan 7. This disparity in dates is due to various Orthodox churches’ use of the Julian instead of the widely-accepted Gregorian calendar in acknowledging holidays. Orthodox Church ...

Amazing Nature: Causes for sea star wasting still a mystery
During the winter holidays we surround ourselves with the symbols of Christmas; snowflakes, lights, bells, evergreen trees and stars.

The NFL’s second season starts Saturday with Wild Card Weekend. It also gives Gizmo a chance to redeem himself from a horrible Week 17 performance. The canine must have not been feeling well, as he incorrectly picked all three of his games last week. That dropped his season record to 18-21. Thanks Santa.
