It seems like the film American Sniper and book, which document the life and untimely death of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, have brought a lot of attention to the lives of various members of that elite unit.  There are other books that detail the lives and accomplishments of other veterans, including Lone Survivor (also made into a film) and Fearless, the story of Adam Brown.  I just finished reading this book, and what particularly interested me is Adam's personal life and his struggles with drug addiction prior to becoming a SEAL.  It's quite an amazing story!  As someone who lost a family member to drugs, I truly appreciate the stories of people that overcome addiction.  Not only did Adam Brown overcome his struggles, he rose to the top of one of the most elite units in the US military.  I highly recommend the book.  I've read so many accounts of personal military experiences, but this one really stands out as something special.

And there should be two flight-crew members in the cockpit at all times.

Absolutely insane!
The co-pilot of Germanwings Flight 9525 appears to have deliberately crashed the plane after he was left alone in the cockpit when the captain was intentionally locked out, according to a French prosecutor.

What?! XD
It's like learning that French fries aren't from France. Or that apple pie isn't from the United States. Well, here's another food origin story that might shock you: American cheese was invented by a Canadian.

Wow! That's pretty interesting!
Future Samsung smartphones and tablets could get a major boost in graphical muscle. An AMD Radeon-powered boost to be precise. Is there any substance to today’s rumor that Samsung is considering acquiring AMD? […]
