The amount of coastal water that can harbor harmful Vibrio bacteria has spiked 56%. One species is flesh-eating.

Dead menhaden fish float in the Navesink River in New Jersey on April 2, 2021. The state's Department of Environmental Protection said a species of Vibrio bacteria is likely responsible.

The portion of coastlines in which Vibrio bacteria can thrive has risen 56% since the 1980s. It's one of many ways climate change is worsening human health. The amo...

Why David Lynch Decided To Adapt Dune

Denis Villeneuve's highly anticipated adaptation of Frank Herbert's "Dune" is almost here, which makes it the perfect time to revisit the other "Dune" film adaptation, directed by surrealist maestro David Lynch. Lynch's "Dune", released in 1984, is something of a mixed bag; it was a critical and commercial failure but has gained a small cult following over the years.

Cold Front Brings Snow, Rain To NorCal: Downtown Sacramento Finally Breaks 212-Day Dry Streak
