With dogs in almost half of American homes, a number of South Carolina political candidates this year are featuring the family pet dog in ads, on web sites and on Facebook pages. College of Charleston political scientist Gibbes Knotts says such ads help to humanize a candidate but probably are not that effective in winning votes. Ads that contrast candidates - negative ads - tend to work better, Knotts says.

The ECB is looking at more stimulus, such as pumping new money into the economy by purchasing bonds. But such central bank stimulus can’t do it all alone. “It would be helpful for the overall stance of policy if fiscal policy could play a greater role alongside monetary policy, and I believe there is scope for this,” he said in a speech last week at a U.S. Federal Reserve conference at Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

And there’s been some progress. Deficits have shrunk, and countries that needed bailout loans are slowly getting their act together.

At the wheel was a New York teenager, Joseph Beer, who had smoked about $20 worth of marijuana, before getting into the car with four friends, and driving over 100 mph before crashing into trees with such force that it split the car in half. As states liberalize their marijuana laws, public officials and safety advocates worry that more drivers high on pot will lead to a spike in traffic deaths. Researchers who have studied the issue, though, are divided over whether toking before taking the wheel in fact leads to more accidents.

His name won't be on the ballot, but Obama will shape the midterm elections like no other. For Republicans, he is a punch line who fires up conservatives and reaches dissatisfied independents. And some Democrats won't even mention his name. It's left Obama able to do little more than raise money ahead of an election that will define how he spends his final two years in office.

Television networks across the Middle East have begun airing cartoons and comedy programs using satire to criticize the group and its claim of representing Islam. And while not directly confronting their battlefield gains, the shows challenge the legitimacy of the Islamic group and chips away at the fear some have that they are unstoppable. The Arabic writing on the flag reads, "One Arab nation," top, and "Having an eternal message." "ISIS" on the cartoon character's head cover is the outdated acronym of the group.

  • Disabled Girl’s Death
    In this June 2014 photo provided by the Westchester County Department of Correction in Valhalla, N.Y., Nicole Diggs is shown. Diggs, who is charged in the death of her 8-year-old disabled daughter, could inherit nearly a million dollars from the girl's trust fund, even if she's convicted. Diggs would not be automatically prohibited from inheriting the trust fund because the charge does not allege that she intended to kill the girl.
