• Goats have evolved to be able to thrive in frigid temperatures and dangerous environments - and yet we're still shocked (and relieved) to see this herd survive a terrifying avalanche in the French Alps.

    A team of skiers captured this video of goats running for their lives as snow tumbled down the mountain. The herd breaks in two, and miraculously, both groups escape the snowslide by the skin of their teeth. Whew!

    We're happy to see the goats make it out alive, but even more pleased to hear the concerned skiers' investment in the animals' lives, and celebration when they knew they survived.

  • Drake's new recording studio won't be built at a plush Hollywood locale, but on the premises of a struggling Philadelphia high school, where he aims to drive students toward a better future.


    After watching Diane Sawyer's report for "Nightline" about Strawberry Mansion High, considered one of the most dangerous schools in the country, the 27-year-old Grammy winner felt compelled to do something to help. Something unforgettable.

    "I caught this piece that Diane did, and I was like by the end of it, I was so heavily affected that at the end I started questioning, like, major aspects of my life. It just really changed a lot about me," the rapper told ABC News.


    Strawberry Mansion High School is situated in one of the worst parts of Philly. According to the report, the neighborhood has the highest number of murders, rapes and assaults in the city, and 40 percent of residents live in poverty. Ninety-six percent of students at Strawberry Mansion High are impoverished. Some are

    Look ahead at what 2014 holds for your sign with our free horoscopes.

    Astrology's two largest true planets shape our aspirations and accomplishments. One, visionary Jupiter, begins the year in the sensitive Water sign of Cancer, where ambitions, beliefs and truths come through our emotions.

    If you're curious to see how your unique birth chart will manifest itself this year, try running your Big Picture Yearly Forecast!

    The other, karmic Saturn, spends virtually all of 2014 in fellow Water sign, Scorpio, which challenges us to look more deeply into our desires and to reevaluate our relationships. Answers we seek about career and life purpose are more likely to arise from instinct than intellect.

    Major decisions need to feel right to ensure we're on the appropriate path. However, the tender nature of Water signs makes it possible to allow fear to undercut self-confidence and keep us from making important decisions. Considering the possible risks of our actions makes sense, but not when they deter us from seeking solutions and pressing ahead with

  • On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me, the Heart and Seoul Collection from Amarte! I don't know if that actually rhymes but if I were lucky enough to get a gift for each of the Twelve Days of Christmas, I definitely would want this holiday gift set to be one of them!

    The Heart and Seoul Collection from Amarte Skin Care

    First things first, about the packaging, I have to say, "Wow!" The Heart and Seoul Collection doesn't need to be wrapped--it's gorgeously packaged with a hard topped box that flips up. Tucked inside the pink colored box are five items that I couldn't wait to get my hands on:

    • Daily Wonder ® Cleansing Foam (150 ml - 5.1 fl oz)
    • Aqua Veil ® Hydrator (100 ml - 3.4 fl oz)
    • HydroLift ® Cream (80 ml - 2.7 fl oz)
    • Eyeconic ® Eye Cream (20 ml - 0.7 fl oz)
    • Two versatile shades of Natural Finish™ BB Cream (10 ml each)

    My skin type changed recently, I went from slightly dry to ultra dry so I loved (still love) the cleansing foam. It smelled slightly like cucumber, as did the Aqua Veil and

    If you're looking for a way to fight the inevitable holiday bulge, the treadmill may not be your only ally. According to CNN, a new study published in the journal Appetite indicated that folks cut back on their food intake when it was placed on a red plate versus a white or blue one. Even though die-hard popcorn fans (one of the items tested) ate more than non-popcorn lovers, they still ate less on average.

    But, don't run out to Crate & Barrel to stock up on some new tableware just yet. The participants in the study were not told the reason behind the tests. So, Oliver Genschow, who studies consumer psychology at the University of Mannheim, told CNN that "we don't know what will happen if people are conscious of their plate's color. Maybe it won't work anymore." So, there is still much research to be had on this theory. In the meantime, color us intrigued.
