For 10,000 years, a tiny iridescent blue fish has lived in the depths of the cavern in Nevada's desert, but a new study says climate change and warming waters, and its lack of mobility, are threatening the pupfish and decreasing its numbers.

Edgar Hoover about "Washtub," the codeword assigned to the Office of Special Investigations.

Hundreds of thousands of Cubans and Cuban-Americans fly in and out of Cuba each year thanks to the liberalization of U.S. and Cuban travel rules over the last five years. On Monday, Sept. 1, 2014, the Cuban government will enact new rules meant to take a big bite of that traffic, sharply limiting the amount of goods people can bring into Cuba in their luggage, and ship by boat from abroad.
