  • New details emerge in Jose Fernandez's deadly boating accident

    A day after 24-year-old Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez was killed in an early morning boating accident, new details of the crash are being made public. According to USA Today, Fernandez and two friends, identified by WSVN.com as Eduardo Rivero and Emilio Macias, died in a crash on Government Cut, a Miami Beach jetty that gives boats direct access to the ocean. The boat, a 32-foot SeaVee Center Console fishing vessel named the Kaught Looking, did not belong to Fernandez, and he was not driving it at the time of the crash.

  • This Dad Made the Coolest Built-In Bunk Beds For His Daughters

    If you want to save space, buying bunk beds for your kids is a smart bet. But if you want to save a lot of space, do as this father did and build them yourself. We're beyond impressed with the craftsmanship of one handy dad, who constructed a gorgeous bunk bed, complete with a staircase, crown molding, and built-in bookshelves, for his two young daughters. Even more impressive, the construction project cost just $800 in supplies and only took up roughly 20 inches — less than two feet — of floor space because he fit it into the wall of the spare bedroom. "It makes the room much larger than it would be with regular furniture," he said of his finished product, which featured a full mattress on top

    Unmoved by harsh debate reviews, a defiant Donald Trump showed no sign Wednesday of making any big changes before his second faceoff with Hillary Clinton, pressing ahead with a strategy focused on speaking directly to his white working-class loyalists across the Midwest. Democrat Clinton, meanwhile, pushed to improve her standing among younger voters with the help of the president, Sen. Bernie Sanders and other key allies, 48 hours after her debate performance that seemed to spark badly needed enthusiasm. Unlike Clinton, Trump is not planning to participate in any mock debates, although he is likely to incorporate what one person described as "tweaks" to his strategy.

    A former exotic dancer in St. John's says she doesn't accept the defence of Joel North — a private radio host who left his job after he told a woman she'd do better by stripping online.
