For 10,000 years, a tiny iridescent blue fish has lived in the depths of the cavern in Nevada's desert, but a new study says climate change and warming waters, and its lack of mobility, are threatening the pupfish and decreasing its numbers.

Police say that Ford had attempted to remove a gun from an officer's holster on Monday when he was shot and killed, which differs from accounts by the family of the man. Details may differ, circumstances of their deaths may remain unknown, but the outrage that erupted after the Aug. 9 fatal shooting of the unarmed, black 18-year-old by a white officer in Ferguson, Missouri, has become a rallying cry in protests over police killings across the nation.

Hundreds of thousands of Cubans and Cuban-Americans fly in and out of Cuba each year thanks to the liberalization of U.S. and Cuban travel rules over the last five years. On Monday, Sept. 1, 2014, the Cuban government will enact new rules meant to take a big bite of that traffic, sharply limiting the amount of goods people can bring into Cuba in their luggage, and ship by boat from abroad.
