    Laser procedure can turn brown eyes blue

    (CNN) – From the piercing blue eyes of Paul Newman to the steely gaze of Daniel Craig, blue eyes have always been a measure of attractiveness. But exactly why they make hearts throb and catapult actors and models to stardom is a point of conjecture. Theories range from evolutionary psychologists who say that blue-eyed women in Palaeolithic societies had a better chance of standing out in the crowd, others posit that pupil dilation — a signifier of attraction — is […]

    Inventor of K-Cups says ‘I feel bad sometimes that I ever did it’

Because the K-Cups are bad for the environment — they are disposable and not recyclable. Sylvan originally envisioned the cup-like pouches that brewed a single serving of coffee for offices, where people want different brews. But the technology caught on, and Keurig Green Mountain brewers are now on […]

    Kidnapped at birth, girl accidentally reunites with her biological family after 17 years

Zephany means “hidden by the Lord,” a fitting name for a girl who was allegedly kidnapped at birth and found thanks to an improbable coincidence. South African Police have been mostly quiet about the case. A police spokesman, Andre Traut, confirmed that a woman was arrested last week and charged with kidnapping and falsely pretending that she […]
