LIVINGSTON COUNTY, N.Y. - There is a certain stillness at the headstone, a coating of January snow muffling the murmur of cars on nearby roads. John York is here, as he has been many times before. In a strange way, York has known the teenage girl buried here longer than anyone else. On Jan. 26, the world learned the identity of the girl buried in a serene corner of a Dansville, N.Y., cemetery. Her identity has not been known since her crumpled body was found in a cornfield in November 1979, her life snuffed out by a bullet to the forehead and another to the back.   more...

WASHINGTON -- President Obama and his aides will outline a plan Monday to spend trillions of dollars in taxpayers' money -- and no one expects Congress to pass it. On Sunday, the White House said that the budget will include a six-year $478 billion program to build and upgrade roads, bridges, and other transit systems, to be financed by a one-time 14% tax on overseas profits. Obama will also call for closing "loopholes that allow U.S. companies to shift profits to tax havens and avoid paying tax on them for years -- or forever -- by requiring them to pay a 19% U.S.   more...

The number 5 sits to the left of the number 10. The number 15 is to the right of 10, but to the left of 20. Most people would have no problem disagreeing with these statements, because most people have spatial associations for numbers. This is called the " mental number line ": smaller numbers go on the left, increasing towards the right. What's not clear is where this number line comes from. It's possible that it's a product of mathematical education, or even that it's a product of human culture and language, found universally regardless of education levels.   more...

Red Bull brought its RB11 2015 Formula One car out in camo to test at Jerez this weekend. Sure, it's a bit terrible in terms of sponsor visibility, but can we keep it anyway? Seriously? The camo looks fantastic. Red Bull has always had one of the easier Formula One cars to spot aside from the fact that Toro Rosso exists. Sure, Toro Rosso always uses an artsier drawing of the red bull on its sides, but Red Bull themselves keeping the wacky zebra look would fix any confusion once and for all.   more...

WASHINGTON - For Ashton Carter, President Obama's nominee to lead the Pentagon, winning Senate confirmation may be the least of his worries. He'll confront urgent concerns: automatic budget cuts slated to gouge the Pentagon's proposed $561 billion budget, countering Islamic State militants menacing Iraq and Syria, and what Sen. John McCain has called "incessant White House micro-management" of the military. Carter, 60, boasts a résumé of top Pentagon posts. Carter is widely expected to win the approval of the Armed Services Committee, which takes up his nomination Wednesday. Its chairman, McCain, the Arizona Republican, hammered Chuck Hagel, the outgoing Defense secretary, at his confirmation hearing two years ago and voted against him.   more...

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Welcome to University of Phoenix Stadium, where the New England Patriots face the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX (6:30 p.m. ET Sunday). Weather conditions: It has been rainy for much of the last four days here, and there was a heavy fog outside this morning, which has delayed some flights coming into Phoenix's Sky Harbor Airport. This stadium has a retractable roof, so weather conditions aren't a huge factor. However, the roof has been opened for the game. A feel for University of Phoenix Stadium: Opened on Aug. 1, 2006, this still has the feel of a sparkling new facility.   more...

Operating room nurse John Kauchick says he's worked 17-hour shifts and once stayed on the job for 23 hours straight - risking fatigue that could lead to medical mistakes. Now the American Nurses Association seeks to reduce such risks with a new set of recommendations spelling out the dangers of nurse fatigue and ways employers can reduce it. The group is spreading the word to nurses and health care facilities across the USA. "With truck drivers and airline pilots, they'll pull the driver out of the truck or the pilot out of the plane" to avoid fatigue, says Kauchick, a traveling nurse who works mostly in Texas and New Mexico.   more...
