Kids, in the spring of 2014, "How I Met Your Mother" aired its final episode, and part of its legacy may be its knack for long-running gags.  See, the genius behind the CBS comedy wasn't just the nonlinear storytelling, but the writers' way of weaving inside jokes and recurring story lines to sometimes deliver a humorous slap to the face stronger than Marshall's storied slap of a thousand suns. With "How I Met Your Mother" having come to a close Monday and Ted (Josh Radnor) having revealed how he meets the titular mother of his two children (and what shockingly happened after that)

England's Alton Towers is set to unleash the latest salvo in its arsenal of Secret Weapon roller coasters in March 2013 with the addition of a $29-million "world's first" ride aimed squarely at thrill-seekers. PHOTOS: Secret Weapon 7 (SW7) coaster at Alton Towers The United Kingdom theme park recently submitted plans to the local planning district that show a compact track layout with numerous inversions and several subterranean sections. Coaster fans have already converted the submitted plans into highly detailed concept art and animated videos . Alton Park has released few details about the new coaster, codenamed Secret Weapon 7 or SW7 for short, other than to say the two minute and 45 second ride will feature an initial drop of 98 feet and cover more than 3,800 feet of track while topping 50 mph. The custom track layout appears to feature at least eight inversions (with as many as 11, by some accounts)

This wasn't a game of two halves, but rather, a game of two selves. The injured impostor portraying Serena Williams was slow-moving, slow-serving and almost couldn't keep a ball in play during the first set of the Australian Open final. Sets 2 and 3 featured the tenacious Serena Williams, the one who dominated the sport a couple of years ago. Confusion reigned at Rod Laver Arena. And ultimately, so did the second Serena.

Here come the holidays, and with them the season's usual bounty from the publishing industry: coffee-table books. Here are four new travel-related volumes that might make worthy gifts. "Planet Earth" is a book that strikes you between the eyes. Its lures are many, from the richness of the colors in these pictures taken from space to the thrill of spotting a familiar continental profile.

MOORE, Okla.--The Moore Cemetery was full of life on Wednesday. Hundreds of volunteers, clutching shovels, rakes and trash bags, marched down SW 4th Street to go to work in this vast, normally flat grassland where the city has buried its dead since the late 1800s. The far south and west sides of the cemetery border what is now a disaster zone. As far as the eye can see, the ground is caked in trash and rubble left by Monday's monster tornado. Except there are keepsakes mixed in too -- a stray photograph, for example,  gleaming in the sun amid jagged bits of concrete, spears of battered wood, mud and crushed grass.
