Sun, 11/11/2018 - 20:54

Search teams recovered bodies from the devastation left by California's most destructive ever wildfire on Sunday, as the statewide death toll rose to at least 27 with high winds hampering the effort to save lives and homes.

The largest inferno -- the so-called "Camp Fire" in the northern foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains -- has destroyed 6,700 homes, business and other buildings in the town of Paradise, effectively wiping it off the map.

Dozens of cat mummies unearthed in ancient Egyptian tomb

Sun, 11/11/2018 - 15:20

At an excavation of a pharaoh's 4,500-year-old pyramid complex, Egyptian archaeologists discovered dozens of mummified cats — in addition to 100 ornate cat statues.  Egyptian Minister of Antiquities Dr. Khaled El-Enany announced the ancient cat artifacts on Nov. 10, and the Ministry took to Twitter to share images of the long-deceased felines, wrapped in ribbons of cloth.
