Kansas Walmart Customer Loses Tooth After Cursing At Self-Checkout Machine
A fight broke out a Kansas Walmart in Wichita on Monday afternoon after a customer became frustrated with a self-checkout machine and began cursing at the device. The 36-year-old man had difficulty completing his transaction and held up the line, much to the chagrin of an unnamed 35-year-old Hispanic male. Capt. Doug Nolte told the Wichita Eagle that the Hispanic man confronted the fuming customer and they engaged in a dispute that continued outside of the store. Once the altercation spilled outside, a 40-year-old black man got involved and punched the cursing customer in the face. The punch knocked out one of his teeth. Nolte said that the man, who was white, started “throwing out some racial slurs after the fight started.” According to Nolte, the language “heightened the confrontation.” Once police arrived on the scene, the only man left was the one who lost his tooth.

Spring is the season to celebrate sexuality. For centuries, cultures around the world have celebrated springtime in various festivals. It's a time of rebirth − seeds sprouting, eggs hatching, animals getting friskier ...

SAT: Standardized College Admissions Test Getting an Overhaul
The SATs, which have terrorized generations of high school kids, are getting a face lift. Gone will be the mandatory essay portion and many obscure vocabulary words. And perhaps even better news -- you won't be penalized for a wrong answer anymore. The College Board, which owns the test, is partnering with Khan Academy to produce a series of online practice tests and videos. The company is also offering fee waivers to low-income students, allowing them to apply to up to four colleges at no charge. But juniors and seniors, don't get too excited -- the new test won't roll out until the spring of 2016. (New York Times)
