“He was like, ‘If we all came together I think we would live in a better world and ... I realize that I’m white and I realize I don’t have to deal with things that people of color have to deal with,’” McCormick recalled. “He put his hand on mine and said, ‘Let me do you a favor, just an act of love, and let me pay for your groceries.’” 
This is one moment that we all need to check out. Comedian Sampson McCormick took to Facebook on Wednesday to share a story about an elderly man he met in a grocery store. The two became acquainted in the checkout line when the older man, whom McCormick calls Mr. Samuel, struck up a conversation about race relations in America and even offered to pay for McCormick’s groceries. The comedian, who is black, was so touched by the experience that he s...

Sky-high suspension rates, bullied kids and underfunded schools — those are some of the hot education topics in the United States. But in other parts of the world, teachers, parents and policymakers are grappling with challenges such as a lack of school buildings or teachers, scarce electricity, and extreme poverty, which often forces young people out of the classroom and into the workforce.

Like a bit of a tipple? You may be increasing your risk of seven types of cancer. According to a new study published today in the journal Addiction, alcohol causes cancer in the oropharynx, larynx, oesophagus, liver, colon, rectum and breast.

The link between alcohol and cancer is nothing new, with research going back decades. However, this study is large and comprehensive, covering 10 years of global data collected by World Cancer Research Fund and American Institute for Cancer Research, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the Global Burden of Disease Alcohol Group and other bodies.
Newly published research has found even moderate consumption of alcohol carries risk of seven types of cancer.

Does art imitate life? Or does life imitate art?

The Department of Justice filed a civil suit on Wednesday charging that The Wolf of Wall Street was financed illegally with stolen money.

The movie about illegal stock trading was funded by the production company Red Granite Pictures, which has since been linked to a fraudulent state fund in Malaysia meant to promote local economic development in the country. The embattled prime minister of Malaysia, Najib Razak, is connected to the fund.

When the federal government takes the rare step of fining medical providers for violating the privacy and security of patients' medical information, it issues a press release and posts details on the web.

But thousands of times a year, the Office for Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services resolves complaints about possible violations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act quietly, outside public view. It sends letters reminding providers of their legal obligations, advising them on how to fix purported problems, and, sometimes, prodding them to make voluntary changes.

Under the Freedom of Information Act, ProPublica requested letters closing HIPAA complaint investigations. Here's what we've received so far.
A federal agency sends thousands of letters a year to health providers closing out complaints about HIPAA violations. Though the government could make those letters public, it doesn’t. ProPublica has started to do so.

“Above all else I’m excited to get out there and make my country and family proud,” Best said via a statement delivered to NBC Sports.

But the former star in American football won't be running for the United States.

Best will compete for Saint Lucia, a tiny Caribbean nation with a population of just 163,000. Best's father is a dual citizen of both the United States and Saint Lucia, according to NBC, which apparently makes Best eligible to represent the island nation in the Olympics.
Jahvid Best's story is an inspirational tale full of twists and turns.

While protests by aggrieved communities aren’t new to India, this time, Gujarat’s Dalits have decided to show their anger in a rather simple, but disruptive, manner: They have refused to scavenge.

India’s caste system divides the Hindu society into four major levels—Brahmin, Kshatriya, Vaishya, and Shudra, where the Brahmins top the pyramid and Shudras form the unenviable bottom. For centuries, Dalits were forced to abide by clear-cut notions of hierarchy and associated professions.

As sociologist Andre Beteille described the root of the current agitation, “Some people (the Dalits) had to do all the dirty work, so that others could continue with their notions of ritual purity.”

By following honeyguides, a species of bird, people in Africa are able to locate bees' nests to harvest honey. Research now reveals that humans use special calls to solicit the help of honeyguides and that honeyguides actively recruit appropriate human partners. This relationship is a rare example of cooperation between humans and free-living animals.

Visions of the future of medicine often involve digital sensors that constantly monitor patients, but not many people imagine that these sensors could be stitched directly into us. But that's the suggestion of a team of researchers from Tufts University, who have developed prototype "smart stitches" that can be used to close wounds — but also send real-time data on tissue health to doctors.
