A chorus of Western countries is urging Turkey to join the fight against ISIS, and the country's former ambassador to the UN says it will -- if Turkey is attacked directly, and not before...After a court decision striking down a ban on same-sex marriage in Nevada, the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel prepares for an explosion of Elvis-themed espousals...and  Chris Dobson does it, and he believes his fellow university students can save lots of water by peeing in the shower.

Alberta wallaby search
A wallaby named Tyson has been hopping around Alberta for the past three years -- and his owner just can't seem to get the jump on him.
