    HIV infections are rising among gay men in many parts of the world, the World Health Organization warned Friday, urging all men who have sex with men to take antiretroviral drugs to prevent infection. "We are seeing exploding epidemics," warned Gottfried Hirnschall, who heads WHO's HIV department. Infection rates are rising again among men who have sex with men -- the group at the epicentre of AIDS pandemic when it first emerged 33 years ago, he told reporters in Geneva.

    LITTLE FALLS, Minn. – A Minnesota homeowner who shot and killed two teenagers during a break-in was convicted Tuesday of premeditated murder. Bryon Smith had claimed he was simply defending himself during the break-in at his home in the small city of Little Falls on Thanksgiving Day 2012. Smith's attorney said the 65-year-old was fearful after previous burglaries. But prosecutors argued that Smith waited in his basement and intended to kill the teens. A total of nine shots were fired at 17-year-old Nick Brady and 18-year-old Haile Kifer. Jurors began deliberating Tuesday morning and within three hours had a verdict:...

    Reality TV shows are making increasing numbers of people convinced that they're the stars of their own, unwanted television programs. Psychiatrists are treating more people for so-called 'Truman Show' delusions -- named after the 1998 movie starring Jim Carrey as a man who spends his entire life unwittingly at the center of a fictional world that's being broadcast to millions of homes. The startling cases often afflict successful people who develop paranoid fantasies that they're being filmed at all times and that the world that's in front of them isn't real.

    Believe it or not, Barack Obama is cracking jokes about the horrific fires in Texas. I guesshe won't be using Bill Clinton's old line, "I feel your pain," when people complain about the terrible economy. How presidential, how empathetic: At a Silicon Valley fundraiser Sunday, the president took a jab at Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry, saying that he's a "governor whose state is on fire, denying climate change." Aside from the fact that this is just a cheap political shot at the expense of Americans who are suffering, it is just not funny and weird.

But there evidently is such a thing on Planet Earth, and as the name suggests, it's a traditional curly-tailed pig covered in a sheep-like wool coat. (The opposite pairing, an overgrown sheep who eats anything in its path and ferrets out truffles, is an experiment that natural selection is apparently not yet up to tackling.) And no, we're not trying to pull the wool over your eyes. (Sorry — it had to be...

Some times hot, sometimes cold, sometimes wet, sometimes dry. This mind blowing discovery that affects all our lives has been dubbed Global Norming. Otherwise know as Climate Strange.

Up until now, guns were barred from any kind of establishment where alcohol is served but that law no longer stands.

But when the much-buzzed-about commercials come on, they won't be watching. A youth leader manning the projector slaps a piece of paper over the lens, blocking out images the center considers inappropriate, such as beers and bikinis. "The purpose is to keep them away from bad influences," said Emad Hamdeh, the youth committee director. "The beer commercials show people happy while drinking; that's not reality."
