An infectious brain disease that has been killing deer, elk and moose both in the wild and on "captive farms" continues to stalk the land, expanding its domain to 23 states and two Canadian provinces since it was first identified in captive mule deer.

Known as chronic wasting disease, or CWD, it has baffled scientists for decades. Where did it come from, and why is it spreading across the landscape? What health risks might it pose to humans who eat parts of infected animals? And can cattle get it from infected deer, elk, and moose, thus introducing it into the human food chain?

A humungous Earth-like planet found by US astronomers has changed the perception of planet formation. A rocky world found by Kepler space observatory should by rights have become a giant ball of gas, but has remained a planet for billions of years.

The newly discovered Kepler-10c planet has been dubbed 'Mega-Earth' thanks to its diameter of 29,000 kilometers and an estimated weight 17 times greater than Earth, which has a diameter of 12,742 kilometers. This makes Kepler-10c the biggest rocky planet ever discovered. The new planet is circling a very old Sun-like star, Kepler-10, some 560 light years from Earth. If you look up in the sky this star can be seen in the Draco constellation, which is 300 million light years away.

Judge Napolitano weighed in on the White House's "nudge squad" this morning on Fox and Friends. The team of government experts will encourage you to do things like pay your back taxes, save more money, eat better, and exercise more.

The idea actually cracked Judge Napolitano up. "I'm laughing cause what will they think of next?! The government can't deliver the mail and they want to tell us to fix the broken screens in our house and clean our attics and change the oil in our cars? These are not functions of government." "If the Constitution protects anything ... it protects the right to be different. We don't need the government in our faces telling us how to live," Napolitano said.

"We have put in place the toughest ethics laws and toughest transparency rules of any administration in history" - Barack Obama

Protecting the environment for some reason seems to necessitate maintaining a complex web of email accounts and aliases. Former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson - if that's her real name - had already admitted to using the pseudonym "Richard Windsor" on a separate government email account that she used in addition to her own. It's now been discovered that Jackson-Windsor also used a third email account for department business, this one not even connected in any way to the EPA...

Even expert storm chases would have struggled to decipher the difference between the tornado warnings sent last May before severe weather hit Joplin and, a few days later, headed again toward downtown Kansas City.

The first tornado was a massive EF-5 twister that killed 161 people as it wiped out a huge chunk of the southwest Missouri community. The second storm caused only minor damage when two weak tornadoes struck in the Kansas City suburbs. In both cases, the warnings were harbingers of touchdowns. But three out of every four times the National Weather Service issues a formal tornado warning, there isn't one.

Adam Hasner @AdamHasner I'm speechless RT @Jeff_Jacoby: Would you sign a petition to legalize 4th trimester abortions? These students would http://bit.ly/19kNKAF

Some people will sign anything, and the latest evidence of that comes by way of the Media Research Center: Once again, MRCTV's Dan Joseph went to a college campus and asked students to sign a petition. This time the goal was to get people to show their support for legalizing 4th trimester abortion. For those of you who failed biology, babies are born at the END of the 3rd trimester.

The Pacific Crest Trail runs 2,650 miles from Mexico to Canada. Usually, a few hundred hardy souls make the trek every year. But this year, the number of people attempting the arduous journey is in the thousands.

The Tuolumne Meadows post office in Yosemite National Park is packed. Ragged hikers wait in a long twisting line outside. Inside the tiny post office, packages are tightly stacked from floor to ceiling. Boxes spill out into the adjoining café. Hiker Max Bennett is praying new shoes from his girlfriend arrive soon.

Doctors are warning that a drug-resistant strain of gonorrhea could be more deadly than AIDS, and are urging members of US Congress to spend $54 million for the development of a drug that would fight it.

"This might be a lot worse than AIDS in the short run because the bacteria is more aggressive and will affect more people quickly," Alan Christianson, a doctor of naturopathic medicine, told CNBC. The new strain of gonorrhea, H041, was first discovered in 2009 after a sex worker fell victim to the superbug in Japan. Medical officials reported that the medication-resilient 'sex superbug' was discovered in Hawaii in May 2011, and has since spread to California and Norway, the International Business Times reports.

It's been over a year since I first heard that the government was spending a half million dollars for a study of shrimp on a treadmill.

It's the first research project of its kind since the the Surgeon General's office during the Clinton administration commissioned a study of the effects of an elliptical machine on Robert Reich. The "Let's Move" program for crustaceans must be going well, because the total expenditure on the study is now almost $200k over the originally reported half-million.
