Husky saves people on Alaskan trail This rescue dog is making it his life’s work to rescue others.

Teams to cheer for at World Cup

Teams to cheer for at World Cup Not that most Americans ever get all that passionate about soccer but, once every four years, we get at least a passing interest in a sport where scoreless ties are common.
