A small group of people stood off to the side of a road near Baltimore on Tuesday afternoon, staring at a column of flames from a derailed frieght train in the distance. "How far -- how far away you think we are?" a man asked. Before anyone could answer, a large explosion ripped through the air, sending a response to the onlookers scurrying away: Too close. The train explosion could be felt for miles in Rosedale, a few miles east of downtown Baltimore, where residents could see a towering black column of smoke rising into the air after the blast.

Getting holiday packages swiped from outside your door is an unfortunate risk of online shopping. Unless you're Al Alverson, a Texas homeowner with a security camera. When he returned home one recent day to discover that the FedEx package he was expecting was missing, he turned to his footage and discovered the culprit. And it wasn't the milkman. “I said, 'Oh my God, it's the UPS guy,'” Alverson told KHOU 11 News . In a video that's now posted on YouTube and circulating around Reddit, the Grinch in a brown uniform drops off a parcel at Alverson's door and then soon returns to nab the FedEx package.

Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa on Saturday dismissed as a "sham" a newly released video in which a Colombian rebel commander discusses contributing money to Correa's 2006 election campaign. The video, whose existence was revealed by the Associated Press on Friday, appears to lend credibility to allegations that the leftist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia contributed to the Correa campaign.

" One of the servers ran from the back of the restaurant saying "the window's broke, the window's broke," Mora recalled.

There is nothing like listening to Stephen A. Smith drop names, places and other various references to his many friends in the sporting world when he's on ESPN's First Take morning program or breaking down the NBA on various other broadcasts. A lot of people don't like his shtick, but let's face it, most of the big-time personalities on sports television mimic talk radio these days: the louder and more emphatic you say it, the better. You don't have to be right. Or wrong.

Tom Schaar landed a 1080. That's all that needs to be said -- and pretty much all the 12-year-old from Malibu could say immediately after becoming the first skateboarder ever to complete three full rotations in the air and land with his board still underneath him. "I did a 1080!" an out-of-breath and excited Schaar exclaimed into the camera that captured him completing the stunt on only his fifth attempt. Schaar recently became one of only a handful of skaters to land a 900. He set out to nail the 1080 on the MegaRamp at Woodward West in Tehachapi, which was customized by Schaar's sponsor, Red Bull, to feature a 70-foot roll-in ramp that leads to a 50-gap and then a quarterpipe ramp with a 27-foot wall.

The Dockers "men of style" video advertising campaign is an all-boys club no more. Credit for cracking the khaki ceiling goes to Los Angeles-based author -- and authority on all things tomboy -- Lizzie Garrett Mettler. The brand's just-released first-ever "women of style" video (see below) shows the author of "Tomboy Style: Beyond the Boundaries of Fashion" sitting on her couch, digging through her closet and walking her dog while wearing a black, button-front shirt and black-colored khakis and talking about her affinity for wearing the pants.

If there's one thing to be admired about Icona Pop -- and there are actually many! -- it's the utter shamelessness with which this Swedish electro duo puts its point across. Few pop acts, for instance, have ever captured the brat-tacular glee of being young as effectively as Icona Pop does in its monster stadium-rave hit " I Love It ," in which Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt dismiss some old dude with thrilling disdain: "You're from the '70s, but I'm a '90s bitch. " So Pop & Hiss can't really claim to be surprised by how openly the video for the group's latest single, "All Night," doubles as a commercial for Absolut -- specifically for the Swedish vodka maker's new Absolut Tune, a grim-sounding combination of vodka and New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
