It's being billed as "Conway's Big Move." This week, a team of workers at the Ohio Historical Center in Columbus is disassembling Conway, a 10,000-year-old Mastodon skeleton, and reassembling him in a new position.
Even though he dates from the Pleistocene epoch, Conway the Mastodon has his own Facebook page. In his most recent post about his big move, Conway says: "This is so exciting! I hope I don't go all to pieces ... JUST KIDDING."
When a brain tumor claimed the life of Motown artist Tammi Terrell in 1970, she was only 24. Yet by 1967, Terrell was a star, thanks to her duets with Marvin Gaye, including "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," "Your Precious Love" and "You're All I Need to Get By." But Terrell also had a promising solo career before and during her collaboration with Gaye. For the first time, all of her solo recordings have been collected into a new anthology, called Come On and See Me.
President Obama on Thursday appointed William M. Daley -- a former Clinton administration official and part of the famed Chicago political family -- as his new chief of staff, calling him an "experienced public servant."

A new study concludes that the vast quantity of methane gas that spewed from the BP oil well in the Gulf of Mexico was gobbled up rapidly by bacteria.
About a third of the material that gushed into the ocean from the BP blowout was in gas form, not oil, and the new study is the latest attempt to figure out what happened to all that carbon-rich material. It had the potential, at least, to deplete oxygen that fish and shrimp need.
