There’s a horrible story coming out of Waukesha, Wisconsin today, which is just outside of Milwaukee. Two 12-year-old girls allegedly lured their friend into the woods and stabbed her 19 times. The 12-year-old victim survived. The suspects were reportedly trying to impress the leader of a website that posts short horror stories. They’re being charged as adults.



Apple has revealed iOS 8. It will include “HealthKit,” which will pull info from your other health apps so you can keep them all in one place. It will also make it easier to switch back and forth on projects between your different devices. The new operating system comes out in the fall.

And a new study shows that hurricanes with female names are more deadly….because people don’t take them as seriously.

They found that female-named hurricanes had twice the death tolls than male. They said it could be sexism, or it could be that people view women as warmer and less aggressive.


And we told you about the dog whose number two caused an emergency landing in Kansas City, but now it's the human passengers causing the problem. On an Air India flight from New Delhi to Frankfurt, somehow, all four toilets became clogged. There flight still had over eight hours, two full meals, snacks and drinks ahead of them, so three hours into the flight, the plane turned around and went back to India. The worst part? Because of the curfew at the Frankfurt airport, passengers on the clogged plane had to wait until the next day to continue their trip.



And if your iPhone has been acting up recently, maybe it needs a good old fashion Catholic blessing. A priest in France is offering smartphone blessing this Sunday in church. Why? To bring more people to the church. He said, quote, "We must remember that the blessing of communication devices is written into the tradition of the Church just like with boats, carts and all instruments of labor and animals," he explained. He’s not the first man of the cloth to bless cells. Father Gil Florini, another French priest, has done the blessing, as have people in London.
