WASHINGTON - Polar bears and penguins are usually the first creatures that come to mind when considering the likely victims of global warming, but a new study finds that fish, coral and other inhabitants of the tropics will be the first to take the brunt of climate change. An analysis of global temperatures over the last 150 years combined with forecasts generated by 39 independent models concludes that animals in areas closest to the equator will be forced to cope with temperatures that are outside their historical range in as little as about 15 years.

LONGMONT, Colo. - For Carey Scott, life these days is all about watching the angry Big Thompson River, swollen by torrential rains, move closer. Sitting on the deck behind her house, Scott can see the rising floodwaters approach her home in Loveland, a charming mountain town 45 miles north of Denver. She has heard the roar of water in recent days as it overflowed the river's banks and cut off her subdivision. All bridges to the north are under water. She can't escape to the west because Highway 34 has buckled.

CASPER, Wyo. - One man describes finding salvation by adopting a small bird during his years in a World War II internment camp. A former highway patrolman explains his friendship with the felon who shot and nearly killed him 30 years ago. And a veteran ranch couple discuss their early years on the American prairie. The disparate stories share a single thread: They all take place in Wyoming. An effort to collect the oral histories of ordinary residents - from longtime natives to unlikely foreign transplants - is being launched in this wide-open Western state, showing that although the landscape may be flat, the depth of life and experience here is decidedly multidimensional.

NEW YORK - John Gallagher Jr. was at a media screening of his new movie "Short Term 12" a few weeks ago when a man came up to him with a critique of his series TV character, journalist Jim Harper of "The Newsroom. " "You know, you're a terrible embed," the man told him, going on to list the ways Harper bungled his job as a reporter traveling with the Mitt Romney campaign in the second season of the HBO show. It was hardly a comment from some idle observer: the naysayer was NBC News anchor Brian Williams.

NEW YORK - Most people can't wait to leave the airport once they've reached their destination. Douglas Thompson can barely tear himself away, which explains why Thompson, a visitor from Glasgow, Scotland, was perched happily on a bench in the aptly named Planeview Park one recent afternoon, watching jets roar into the sky from LaGuardia Airport's Runway 4. The bench is one of the few amenities in this park, a triangular acre where the roar of...

WASHINGTON -- Initial jobless claims rose more than expected last week to 343,000, but continued to signal moderate labor market growth. The number of people who filed for first-time unemployment benefits for the week ending Saturday was up 7,000 from the previous week's revised figure of 336,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. Economists surveyed by Bloomberg News had projected the level to be 340,000. QUIZ: How much do you know about the federal budget cuts? The weekly snapshot of the jobs market can be volatile, particularly in the summer as auto plants shut down for their annual retooling.

Most people agree that Men's Central Jail should be shuttered. The antiquated facility in downtown Los Angeles has been described as a dungeon where inmates and guards alike are in danger, where prisoners are packed in like sardines and where mental illness regularly goes untreated. But what should replace the jail has been the source of debate for nearly a decade. The L.A. County Board of Supervisors finally appeared poised to answer that question in March, when it hired Vanir Construction Management Inc. to conduct a comprehensive study to determine exactly what was needed.
