President Barack Obama on Wednesday invited a Muslim Texas school boy who was arrested for bringing a home-made clock to school to come to the White House.

Obama called the clock “cool” and said Ahmed Mohamed’s inventiveness is what makes the country great.

Trump’s decision to block coronavirus aid to hard-hit states will cost 4 million jobs: analysis

Scientists studied data on 234 glaciers across the Arctic territory spanning 34 years through 2018 and found that annual snowfall was no longer enough to replenish glaciers of the snow and ice being lost to summertime melting.

That melting is already causing global seas to rise about a millimeter on average per year. If all of Greenland's ice goes, the water released would push sea levels up by an average of 6 meters -- enough to swamp many coastal cities around the world. This process, however, would take decades.
