Malala Yousafzai has become the youngest person to ever win the Nobel Peace Prize.

The announcement, made this morning, came nearly two years to the day since Yousafzai was shot in the head by a masked gunman who targeted her on a school bus in Pakistan.

Yousafzai had penned an anonymous diary for BBC Urdu in 2009, detailing the conditions under Taliban rule in northwest Pakistan. A year later, she was the subject of a New York Times documentary, placing her in the spotlight and, tragically, putting her on the Taliban hit list.

Physicians removed a bullet from Yousafzai's head before she was flown the U.K. for more surgery. The 17-year now lives in Birmingham in the U.K.

Jessa Duggar, if we're interpreting her social media accounts correctly, is skeptical of the radiometric dating methods used to determine the age of rocks on Earth.

Why has she taken an interest in this subject? Because it's one of the primary scientific methods cited by those people who believe evolution is actually a thing.

Jessa Duggar, apparently, is not one of those people.

Jessa D.

The 21-year-old, whose comments on abortion and the Holocaust made headlines last month, is sure to incur more online wrath now by merely posting a link.

She has been critical of Atheism and evolution before, so linking to a pro-creationism article titled "Does radiometric dating prove the earth is old?" isn't out of left field.

Still, it makes it plain as day where she stands here ...

Dennis Rader, a serial killer responsible for 10 grisly murders over three decades, is putting together a book about his crimes ... to pay his debt to the families.

The Wichita, Kansas, product says he's cooperating with an author to recount his story in an effort to make things right. Or at least come as close as he can.

Dennis Rader Mug Shot

Rader, nicknamed BTK ("bind, torture, kill") recently sent a four-page, handwritten letter to the Wichita Eagle, "From the Desk of Dennis L. Rader."

"I can never replace their love ones, my deeds too 'dark' to understand; the book or movies etc. is the only way to help them," the 69-year-old writes.

Rader, who's currently serving 10 life sentences, is working with Katherine Ramsland, a professor of forensic psychology at DeSales University in Pennsylvania.

She insists it won't sensationalize Rader's horrific crimes but is "a serious effort that will have some benefit for people who study this kind of crime."

A Michigan police officer recently pulled over a vehicle because a five-year-old girl wasn't using a booster seat, but then decided a ticket wouldn't cut it.

Instead, Ben Hall bought her the booster seat she was lacking.

"A ticket doesn't solve the situation," Hall told WXMI-TV.

"What solves it is the child being in the booster seat like she should be," adds the Emmett Township public safety officer. "It was the easiest 50 bucks I ever spent."

Hall was on patrol last Friday in the southern Michigan community when he pulled over the car after someone reported that it had an unsecured young child inside.

Alexis DeLorenzo and her daughter were with a friend.

Hall said that DeLorenzo told him that she had fallen on hard times and couldn't afford a booster seat for her little girl, and her words clearly hit home.

Indiana doctor George "Scott" Samson reportedly killed his new bride, Kelly Ecker Samson, at their mansion the very same night he married her.

Samson also took his own life in a stunning turn of events.

It's far from clear as to exactly what sparked the murder-suicide, but shortly after guests cleared out of their home, Kelly Ecker, 50, called 911 three times.

  1. In the first call, she screamed, "He's beating the s--t out of me!"
  2. In the second 911 call, someone answered but got disconnected.
  3. In the third, Kelly screams, "Oh my god!" and shots were fired.

Within minutes, she and her new husband were dead.

Kelly was found dead, shot twice in her 10-year-old son's bedroom. George Samson was found dead of a self-inflicted gun shot wound in the basement.

A teacher reportedly took his desire to prove a point about the risks of social media to new heights, shaming a 15-year-old student in epic fashion.

The instructor allegedly took it upon himself to cyber-stalk one particular teenage girl, find bikini pictures of her, and showing them to her classmates.

A hundred of her classmates. At a school assembly.

A Bikini Girl

That's right. A teacher went onto a student's Facebook page, grabbed a picture of her in a bikini, and then humiliated her with it in front of her peers.

The victim's mom has filed complaints. Shocking.

Her parents want justice from Eggbuckland Community College's head teacher, the board of governors, and England's Office for Standards in Education.

The mom said, "She's really upset and hurt and this has knocked her confidence, She's not the type of girl who likes attention like this ... she's a tomboy."

Brittany Maynard, who suffers from a terminal brain tumor is making headlines not because she is fighting for her life, but because she is declining to do so.

The married 29-year-old, who in April was given six months to live, plans to end her own life with medication prescribed by her doctor on November 1.

She wants to make it clear that this is not suicide, however.

Maynard will launch a campaign with the nonprofit Compassion & Choices, an end-of-life choice advocacy organization, to fight for expanding death-with-dignity laws.

"There is not a cell in my body that is suicidal or that wants to die," she says. "I want to live. I wish there was a cure for my disease but there's not."

She has a stage 4 glioblastoma, a malignant brain tumor.

"My glioblastoma is going to kill me. That's out of my control," she says. "I've discussed with many experts how I would die from it, and it's a terrible, terrible way to die."

"Being able to choose to go with dignity is less terrifying."

Today's weather forecast? Surprisingly HOT AND STEAMY for October, at least in Memphis, where a local CBS Station accidentally linked to a porn site instead.

News channel WREG posted a tweet on Tuesday morning reminding viewers to "use our interactive radar to track the rain and storms," with this link, hilariously:

Rock Bone

SPOILER ALERT: That link does not go to their interactive radar.

PornHub (dot) com, for the uninitiated, puts a lot of different things on your radar. Just ask user Rockbone (possibly Rockboner) who got a nice traffic boost today.

The tweet has since been deleted by the station, and WREG has apologized, seemingly blaming a hacker for the incident in a follow-up Tweet ...
