The 67-year-old singer, who will publish her memoir, Simple Dreams, next month, revealed her debilitating condition Friday in an interview with AARP.

She uses poles to assist with walking on uneven ground has been traveling with a wheelchair since being diagnosed with the neurological disorder.

Maj. Nidal Hasan, the Army psychiatrist who four years ago turned his gun on fellow soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, has been convicted of murder.

He was found guilty on all counts, including premeditated murder.

Nidal Hasan Mug Shot

Hasan, 42, faces the death penalty. If he is executed, he would become the first person the U.S. military has put to death in more than 50 years.

A 13-member panel, or jury, of high-ranking officers voted unanimously to convict Hasan, 42, for killing 13 people and injuring 31 others in 2009.

As the verdict was read, Hasan had no visible reaction.

Julio Yanez takes the old adage "rubbing people the wrong way" to a new level.

The Boone, N.C., resident was recently arrested after he allegedly entered a woman's unlocked apartment, got into her bed and tried to give her a back rub.

She apparently wasn't into it.


The 29-year-old had already been arrested for similar offenses twice before.

In a July incident, a victim told Yanez to leave, but he refused and tried to give her a back rub again. The victim rebuffed him, and he was later arrested.

After that incident, additional women came forward and claimed Yanez entered their rooms and tried to initiate back rubs in both April and June.

Whatever his intentions might have been, Yanez has since been charged with multiple counts of breaking, entering and assault on a female.

Demetruis Glenn, a 16-year-old from Washington State, is giving the suspects arrested for the murder of Chris Lane a run for their senseless, sickening money.

Glenn has been arrested in the severe beating and death of Delbert Belton, an 88-year-old WWII veteran who was killed in the parking lot of a pool hall.

The teenager has been charged as an adult, according to reports.

Belton was pronounced dead Thursday after being allegedly beaten to death by Glenn and another teen, who is still at large, for unknown reasons.

Two male teens pummeled Belton outside the pool hall in what police say was a random attack, sure to draw disturbing parallels with the death of Lane.

Moritz Erhardt, a 21-year-old intern for Bank of America has died after working 72 hours straight at the corporation's London office, reports indicate.

For three days, he finished his workday at 6 a.m., then just kept working. The cause of death is unknown, and British police are not treating it as suspicious.

Is this insane-sounding work "schedule" abnormal for his line of work?

An unnamed fellow intern tells The Independent: "We all work long hours but the guys working regularly until 3 or 4 am are those in investment banking."

"You're only doing it for up to 10 weeks so there's a general acceptance of it."

Has this ever happened to you?

You're riding down the freeway... you see a woman riding a motorcycle without a shirt on and without hands on the handlebars... she screams at passing motorists... crashes her vehicle... and then rambles on about religion once others arrive on the scene?

No? Well, it happened to Wisconsin highway patrol officers this week - and it was all captured on camera for our amusement!

Go ahead and watch now and don't be afraid to laugh. No one got injured.

We haven't been this excited about a shirtless female since that Kate Upton topless pic hit the Internet.

Germany will allow babies born with no clear gender-determining anatomy to be put on the national birth register without a "male" or "female" classification.

The "third gender option" takes effect November 1.

A study by the German Ethics Council concluded that the rights of intersex individuals against irreversible medical interventions should be better protected.

"If a child cannot be designated male or female, then they should be entered on the birth register without such a status," the country's new law states.

At least 150 intersex babies are born in Germany each year up to 10,000 people have "serious variations" from physical gender-defining characteristics.

Theresa Semonski is one Crazy Bitch - and proud of it!

The 43-year old grandmother got married this month and walked down the aisle to this Buckcherry track (reportedly in honor of the Paris Hilton sex tape), sticking up her middle finger and making one of the more unique wedding entrances we've seen in awhile.

The footage of her dance down the aisle eventually went viral, much to the vitriol of many mean Internet users, who labeled Semonski "white trash" and slammed the entire routine.

But as you might expect from someone who makes "Crazy Bitch" her wedding song, Theresa was not one to sit idly by and be insulted.

Watch her do her thing and respond to the haters now:

The Christopher Lane murder case has led to public outcry, given the senseless nature of the killing - and allegations of racial double standards by the media.

An Australian-born college baseball player, Lane was gunned down last week while out on a jog in Duncan, Okla., where he had been visiting his girlfriend.

James Edwards, 15, and Chancey Luna, 16, were charged with first-degree murder. Michael Jones, 17, was accused of being an accessory to murder.

According to police, Jones made a detailed confession, saying, "We were bored and didn't have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody."

Two of the alleged killers, Edwards and Luna, are black. Jones is white. Police have not ascribed a racial motive; Jones basically said it was "for fun."

As prenatal testing for Down syndrome becomes more and more common, many women will face an array of information about their unborn children. B

The testing also confronts expectant moms with difficult choices, of course, and leads to a related question posed frequently these days as a result:

How do counselors help women make these decisions?

Devan Weathers, 20 weeks pregnant, tells the Huffington Post that she was pulling into her office parking lot from a lunch break when she got the phone call.

Her second pregnancy had resulted in two abnormal ultrasounds, and her doctor had said she would be a good candidate for a new test called "Harmony."
