    Hunter Walker October 28, 2014Mitt Romney, who lost the 2012 election to President Barack Obama, has been traveling the country making appearances on behalf of Republican candidates in this year's midterm election. At one of these events in Nebraska on Monday evening, Romney unleashed a scathing assault on the "terrible" Obama administration. It was like a Republican standup special with a constant stream of jokes and barbs about Obama's policies and leadership abilities. Romney began by declaring he didn't care about upsetting Obama. "If you're running for office they tell you it's not a good idea to tell jokes alright....

    PARIS (AFP) - A powerful volcano erupted under the icesheet of West Antarctica around 2,000 years ago and it might still be active today, a finding that prompts questions about ice loss from the white continent, British scientists report on Sunday. The explosive event -- rated "severe" to "cataclysmic" on an international scale of volcanic force -- punched a massive breach in the icesheet and spat out a plume some 12,000 metres (eight miles) into the sky, they calculate. Most of Antarctica is seismically stable. But its western part lies on a rift in Earth's crust that gives rise to...

    — Early Thursday morning, a car blew up near a home in Weehawken, New Jersey. Authorities say the victim appeared to be sitting in the driver's seat when the car exploded in front of 76 Hackensack Plank Road just before 7:00 a.m. People nearby say they heard a loud explosion and saw a large, dark plume of smoke shoot up from the car. The blast was powerful enough to blow out nearby car windows, and it sent debris flying onto nearby homes. Authorities say the blast may be tied to some sort of ongoing domestic dispute. "It's my understanding -...
