    The odds that Hillary Rodham Clinton will be the Democratic vice presidential nominee are surging. A week after one betting aggregator said she was a distant 25-1 shot, and 12th on a list that put her behind an Ohio state senator, another betting site has the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee with a 16-1 shot and fifth in line. Clinton has roared back into the public spotlight with a new Hulu feature. She has also embraced former Vice President Joe Biden’s recent string of victories over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who she has drubbed with a string of negative comments. Still,...

    It was a scare for passengers on Spirit Airlines flight 630 from LAX to Denver, Colorado. About 40 minutes into the flight, the plane was forced to turn around. Some passengers in the front of the cabin said they felt ill. On the ground, firefighters opened the baggage compartment door wearing full protective gear with oxygen tanks. They entered the belly of the plane looking for anything unusual. Only one person was transported to the hospital. In a statement, the company said in part: "The aircraft in question has been taken out of service while our maintenance team inspects it....

    [Mr.] Adler was then told other people had complained about his family's body odor, and that his family would have to leave. They think it was less about their hygiene and more about them being Jewish. Yossi Adler tried to remain calm as his family picked up its luggage, but he's furious about what happened. “They take me off and say we've gotten complaints about you having body odor and we have to take you off the plane," he said.

    An Indonesian airliner was delayed for an hour after passengers complained of an overpowering stench released from a load of the notorious thorny fruit durian, according to reports. About 2 tons of the world’s stinkiest fruit was in the cargo hold of the Jakarta-bound Sriwijaya Air flight at Bengkulu in Sumatra, the BBC reported. Boyke Ledy Watra, a reporter with Indonesia’s Antara news agency who was aboard the fetid flight, said passengers began arguing with the crew — with some almost coming to blows with flight attendants. The airline eventually agreed to remove the offending fruit and the plane took...

    Minor league baseball teams have been known to go a step or two further than their major league counterparts when it comes to marketing and promotion gimmicks meant to attract attention and maybe help sell a few tickets. So it’s no surprise an affiliate of the Texas Rangers is trying to capitalize on one of the biggest moments in the baseball season so far — Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor punching Toronto slugger Jose Bautista. The now-famous incident for which Odor received an eight-game suspension on Tuesday.

    During the 2008 presidential campaign, Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin referred to Madeline Albright's somewhat well-known saying, found on a Starbucks coffee cup, that "There's a special place in Hell for women who don't help other women." At the time, Albright, who served as Secretary of State under Bill Clinton, huffed: "Though I am flattered that Governor Palin has chosen to cite me as a source of wisdom, what I said had nothing to do with politics." She naturally followed that statement with an intense political attack on Palin and GOP presidential nominee John McCain. Now that Democrat Hillary...

    SANTA MONICA ( — Authorities say a foul odor that spurred calls to fire departments throughout the city on Sunday is possibly the result of the large release of methane in the Santa Monica Bay. Santa Monica Fire said in a department statement that they believe the strong odor was caused by a naturally occurring methane leak below the ocean floor. “This morning there was a large release of natural ocean floor methane released in the Santa Monica Bay,” the statement said. “This methane is not toxic and dissipates quickly.” Sam Atwood, a spokesman for the Air Quality Management District...
