It has been nearly two days since Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 and all 239 passengers, including three Americans, on board mysteriously disappeared off the radar above the South China Sea. Many of the mysteries were solved only after the recovery of the plane’s black box, which records flight data and cockpit voices. As search and rescue teams race against time to search for the Malaysian Airlines plane and its passengers, we look at five notorious airplane mysteries that were equally perplexing to investigators early on, some remaining unresolved to this day.
A new method of 3D printing an anatomically accurate replica of the human liver is now helping to guide surgeons during tricky procedures. The 3D-printed replicas, which are made of transparent material threaded with colored arteries and veins, could help surgeons prevent complications when performing liver transplants or removing cancerous tumors, researchers said. “We provide the surgeons with a physical model that is 100 percent identical to what they will encounter in surgery when they operate,” said Dr. Nizar Zein, the chief of hepatology at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio.
Like thousands of abandoned villages in Spain, A Barca — with its 12 crumbling stone homes covered in moss and ivy — is seeking a new owner to bring it back to life. Local officials in Spain’s verdant northwestern region of Galicia hope to give away the hamlet, which is nestled in a hillside overlooking the Mino river near the Portuguese border. Several proposals have already been made but Avelino Luis de Francisco Martinez, the mayor of Cortegada, the municipality that oversees A Barca, said he would prefer a tourism project.
By Toru Hanai and Elaine Lies KORIYAMA, Japan (Reuters) - Some of the smallest children in Koriyama, a short drive from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, barely know what it’s like to play outside - fear of radiation has kept them indoors for much of their short lives. Though the strict safety limits for outdoor activity set after multiple meltdowns at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant in 2011 have now been eased, parental worries and ingrained habit mean many children still stay inside. And the impact, three years on, is now starting to show, with children experiencing falling strength, lack of coordination - some cannot even ride a bicycle - and emotional issues like shorter tempers, officials and educators say.
DEAR ABBY: I thought I was a healthy 40-year-old until I was diagnosed with high blood pressure. My doctor began treating it as a stand-alone condition, without considering that high blood pressure is a major risk factor for kidney disease. At first, I wasn’t even tested for kidney disease.
Your relationship with your boss is one of the biggest determining factors in how happy you’ll be at work, and how happy your employer will be with you. A key part of that relationship is how much your boss trusts you, which dictates everything from how much freedom your boss gives you in the course of your daily work to whether you’re recommended for high-profile projects and promotions.

The California family who we reported chose homelessness over abandoning their pet pit bull finally has a happy ending: a dog-friendly apartment. Carol Devia, her husband, Peter, and her adult sons, Leandro and Christoffer, were homeless for months because every apartment they saw within their price range had landlords who were wary of letting a pit bull stay with them. But one landlord saw the story on a pit bull advocacy group’s Facebook page and offered the Devia family a place to live where their two dogs - the other is a lab mix - can run around freely.
