    "Sonnet 18" by William ShakespeareShall I compare thee to a summer’s day?Thou art more lovely and more temperate:Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,And summer’s lease hath all too short a date;Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;And every fair from fair sometime declines,By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm'd;But thy eternal summer shall not fade,Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st;Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st:So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,So long lives this, and...

    When former Philadelphia Eagle Jason Kelce took a dip into a pool of chili recently, he surfaced missing a valuable piece of jewelry ever football player covets — his Super Bowl ring. He announced the loss on his “New Heights” podcast. The ring went missing when he and his brother, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce held The Great Lombaby Games at the University of Cincinnati, a competition between athletes and academics, per CBS Sports. Part of the competition included participants diving into pools of Skyline chili. As Jason Kelce surfaced, his ring did not. “I legitimately lost my...

    Prosecutors on Wednesday abruptly dropped the charges against three men accused of stealing handwritten Eagles lyrics from Don Henley after the bandleader reportedly failed to disclose thousands of pages of evidence on time. The news came to light after Henley waived his attorney-client privilege, thus granting prosecutors access to 6,000 pages of previously undisclosed materials, including emails between Henley, Eagles manager Irving Azoff and their legal team. Assistant District Attorney Aaron Ginandes wrote in a letter to the court that the defense should have had an opportunity to cross-examine the prosecution about these materials. "It is now clear that both...

    Dear Doctors: My wife has been diagnosed with something called Eagle syndrome. Not a lot of medical providers in our area treat this type of illness. Any information you can give about it, including what treatments are available and which specialists we should see, would be helpful. Dear Reader: Eagle syndrome is somewhat rare, so it's not surprising that finding information, treatment and support have been a challenge. The condition occurs in about 1 in 62,000 people, and it is seen three times more often in women as in men. Someone living with Eagle syndrome experiences sharp and sudden nerve...

    Eagle-eyed NFL fans believe they already know who will take to the field at Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas in February. We are still 95 days out from the highly-anticipated climax of the NFL season but that still hasn't stopped fans from sharing a wild conspiracy theory online.

Explaining this theory, popular X account NFL Memes initially pointed out that the logo for Super Bowl LVI was...

    That rapidly growing wind power development kills birds in ever increasing numbers is clear. That it also kills whales and other marine mammals is becoming clear. So the policy question is how much killing is enough, before we stop killing more? This question seems not to be asked. The stampede to build huge amounts of wind power, on land and at sea, is potentially devastating to a great many species. Our focus has been on the growing threat to whales and other marine mammals from offshore industrial wind. But this is just part of a much deeper pattern of runaway...

    A lucky coincidence has given Murphy the opportunity to nurture an eaglet of his ownIn early March, a bald eagle named Murphy, a resident of the World Bird Sanctuary in Valley Park, Missouri, was ready to become a father. He crafted his nest carefully in the bottom of his enclosure, his home for most of his 31 years of life since an injury left him unable to fly. As time went on, he became more and more protective of his offspring, screeching and charging at anyone who tried to come near. “We’ve never had a bird at the sanctuary protect...
