The Holy Grail screen protector can defend against key scratches, scissor stabs and five-foot drops, but do not use it to stop a bullet. The accessory, created by Seattle company Sir Lancelot's Armor , went on sale this week.

The head of Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers had been uncompromising since early December,  when a judge ordered him to turn over some evidence. So uncompromising that he made a meal of evidence.

Never fear! Christopher Walken is here to save a world in crisis - with an awesome dance mash-up cut to C&C Music Factory's "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now). " Missing plane? Crimea? Affordable Care Act got you down? It's time to take a little break from reality and escape with the video above, starring the typically intense Walken busting more moves than we could imagine. The prolific actor appears to be a similiarly prolific dancer in the video compiled and in our opinion brilliantly edited by Huffington Post video editor Ben Craw . And a lot of the costumes are a hoot too. This isn't the first time a music video of the twinkle toes actor dancing has thrilled.

NEW YORK - A cleric who gave a rousing speech urging jihad against "Jews, Christians and America" after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks testified at his terrorism trial Wednesday that he was speaking for Muslims, not for Al Qaeda, even though he delivered his message while sitting beside Osama bin Laden outside his mountain hide-out in Afghanistan. Sulaiman abu Ghaith held the witness stand for about four hours after defense attorney Stanley Cohen surprised the courtroom by calling the defendant to testify on his own behalf - something Cohen said he had done only twice in his 30-year career.

In the video above, you can watch as a physicist learns that his theory of how the universe began was right after all - 30 years after he first proposed it.  His reaction moves from disbelief, to joy, to gratefulness, and I promise it will make you smile. The video comes to us courtesy of Stanford University's publicity department, which had the foresight to follow assistant professor of physics Chao-Lin Kuo as he delivered the good news to another physics professor, Andrei Linde, who first proposed his theory of "new inflation" in the early 1980s.

The nonprofit planned to hold the vigil Monday evening.

 With nine returning starters from a City Section Division I semifinalist team, Banning was expected to do well this season, and the Pilots sent a message on Monday night that they intend to be a title contender after a 3-2 victory over defending champion San Fernando. Juan Gallardo's three-run home run in the fifth inning wiped out a 2-0 deficit and enabled Banning (4-2) to inflict a rare defeat on All-City pitcher Alonzo Garcia, whose career record is 24-4. Justin Yanez, a junior pitcher, struck out 10 and allowed four hits.

The nearly two-minute UC Irvine video looks like an appeal to prospective students, featuring a montage of undergraduates walking around campus, dancing in classrooms and celebrating big basketball victories. But the target audience becomes obvious at the end, when 7-foot-6 freshman center Mamadou Ndiaye looks directly into the camera while towering over a cardboard cutout of Barack Obama and says: "Mr. President, we should play ball together. " The video is the latest and perhaps most visible attempt by a university to attract a high-profile graduation speaker.
