Police announced that a woman was found in car, which was covered in snow, a week after she died inside.

In the United States alone, McDonald's sells more than 1 billion pounds of beef and more than 500 million cups of coffee each year. While I don't eat at McDonald's very often anymore (the few times I eat a burger in any given year, my place of choice is In-N-Out), I have unwrapped plenty of Quarter Pounders with Cheese, Egg McMuffins, and other delectable McTreats in my time.
A local hiker in Ireland stumbled across an unusual cave-like chamber last year. Upon discovering what appeared to be human remains scattered on the ground of the cave, Michael Chambers called the police. But, they’re not part of a recent crime. Rather, researchers recently confirmed some of the bones date back to as early as 3,600 BC, according to The Irish Times.
Two labradoodles are being credited with saving an elderly woman’s life. The dogs, Adam and Eva, woke their owners at 4:30 a.m. on Sunday. They strangely tugged on their owner’s sleeve, insisting to be let outside. The owners, Lonnie and Susan Chester, told the Jackson Citizen Patriot that they were at first wary of letting them out into the snowy yard of their Norvell Township, Mich., home, worried something dangerous was alarming the dogs.
Some 49.9 percent of Sekisei coral reef — Japan's largest — had bleached by the end of 2017, the Environment Ministry has revealed. The figure is substantially less than the bleaching ratio of 91.4 percent on the reef between Okinawa Prefecture's Ishigaki and Iriomote islands at the end of 2016. However, "the water temperature remains high and the bleaching ratio is still high. We can't be optimistic," said an Environment Ministry official. "Coral in the area hasn't shown signs of real recovery, and remains in critical condition."
Her name is Avgi, and the last time anyone saw her face was nearly 9,000 years ago. When she lived in Greece, at the end of the Mesolithic period around 7000 B.C., the region was transitioning from a society of hunter gatherers to one that began cultivating its own food. In English, Avgi translates to Dawn—a name archaeologists chose because she lived during what's considered the dawn of civilization.
