Rachel Schaap moved to Bemidji MN last December 30th, during the coldest part of the winter. She and her wife Elizabeth had started farming 3 years ago, in the mountains of North Carolina. "We had a small farmstead," Rachel explained. "We had our own garden plot, we had goats, chickens, rabbits, a couple farm cats - barn cats - and then our dog. I'd also volunteered down at the Veterans' Healing Farm, which is also in western North Carolina.

Beyoncé brings HBCU pride to Coachella performance

Juliana Hatfield was a darling of the '90s indie music scene. She played with Blake Babies and The Lemonheads and had a hit with the edgy pop song, "My Sister." Hatfield released a string of alternative albums since those days, full of distorted guitars and strong vocals.

When The Exorcist, based on the novel by William Blatty, came to theaters in 1973, it captured the public imagination. Or more accurately, the public's nightmares.

Exorcisms aren't just the stuff of horror movies — hundreds of thousands of Italian Catholics reportedly request them each year. But when William Friedkin directed the movie, he'd never actually seen an exorcism. It would be four more decades before he actually witnessed one.

Zoologist Lucy Cooke says humans have got it all wrong about sloths. "People think that because the animal is slow that it's somehow useless and redundant," she says. But in fact, "they are incredibly successful creatures."

Cooke is the founder of the Sloth Appreciation Society and the author of a new book called The Truth About Animals: Stoned Sloths, Lovelorn Hippos, and Other Tales from the Wild Side of Wildlife. The book aims to set the record straight on some long-held misconceptions about the animal world.
