Hire a professional to live Tweet your wedding

The worlds of social media and weddings have married. A bride can arrange a person to live tweet the ceremony and reception.

Girl shaves head for pal with cancer, gets temporarily suspended

A Colorado girl who shaved her head to support a friend who went bald because of cancer treatment was told she violated her school's dress code but will now be allowed to stay in class.

The academy later said she could return, and the school's board of directors met Tuesday evening and voted 3-1 to let her come back.

The trunked trio -- all circus stars in St. Louis, Missouri -- found a way out of their enclosure Saturday and went for a stroll.

But the three only made it to the parking lot, where they dinged two cars and were eventually rounded up by their handlers, according Dennis Burkholder, spokesman for St. Louis' Shriners.
