One Denver block buried under up to 4 feet of hail
Up to 4 feet of ice buried all the territory between Dakota and Alaska — streets, that is. In some ways, it was "gi-normous," freakishly so. In other ways, it was microscopically small. The hail that pounded the neighborhood between 10 and 11:30 p.m ...

( Alex Brandon, The Associated Press ) WASHINGTON — Avoiding overtime in Game 6 when Paul Pierce's potential tying 3-pointer was released after the clock expired, the Atlanta Hawks made it to the Eastern Conference finals for the first time by... They got the ball to Pierce, who won Game 3 on a banked-in buzzer-beater, then put Washington briefly ahead late in Game 5 with a 3. This time, his 3 from the corner swished through, but after a couple of anxious minutes for both teams, a replay... Once trailing 2-1 in the best-of-seven series against the Wizards, the Hawks won three straight games. They improved road teams to 6-0 this postseason in Game 6s. Now No. 1 seed Atlanta will host LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the conference finals on Wednesday night. It's the Hawks' first trip to a conference final since the NBA realigned into conferences in 1970-71. The team had not won two playoff series in a single year since moving to Atlanta for the 1968-69 season.
NEW YORK (AP) — These vinyl records give "remaster" a new meaning. An entrepreneur transforms the lacquered discs into jewelry, clocks, wall art and other novelties, with the perk of keeping a little more trash out of the environment along the way. Patrick Chirico, owner of Wrecords by Monkey in Brooklyn, gets his raw materials from the surplus of used-record stores, which canvas flea markets and estate sales, sell the most popular vinyl, and discard the rest. Chirico pays about 10 cents a disc, and uses mostly 33-rpm LPs for his projects, separating them into thick and thin vinyl. "The thick vinyl we use for clocks and wall art and things like that don't need to be manipulated," he says. To reduce his carbon footprint, Chirico says, he uses 90 percent of every record. He calls his customers nostalgic for rock and roll or hip-hop and says they range in age from 20 to 70. Bracelets range from $10-$25, clocks $39-$100 and wall art $19-$100. iPhone amplifiers are $5. As for choosing which records Chirico... If he comes across Michael Jackson's "Thriller" or Frank Sinatra, he'll grab those, he says, but it's the record labels from the '70s and '80s that really appeal to the nostalgic customer.
You can’t blame any night-owl Founding Father, groggy from an evening of revelry, who may have stumbled in to sign the Declaration of Independence and was irked to learn Ben Franklin had been raring to go since 5 in the morning, totally pumped to... Ben, of course, was the consummate early-riser. He also liked to rub it in, given to pithy “early to bed” sayings or writing essays about how “sluggards” should enjoy the splendor of rising at 4 a. m. In our sleep-deprived nation of 2015, Ben’s a guy you’d nail in the head with your alarm clock. Early risers like Ben — the “morning people” — are energetic doers, in bed around 10, out of bed around 5:30 the next morning, ready to get stuff done. The late sleepers — the “night owls” — hit the sack past midnight, having tackled tasks or enjoyed a night of TV. They’re also doomed to pay the price at sunrise when the norms of society — jobs and kids — force a groggy start of the day. The rest of us fall in the middle — able to rise early, if necessary, yet willing to post a late-night Facebook selfie. Our society favors morning people. Avoid caffeine and computer screens during the early evening. Place your alarm clock across the bedroom. Whether you head for bed or binge-watch “Orange is the New Black” until 1 a. m. likely has a deeper, more complex explanation. “I’m a firm believer that biology determines a lot,” says Dr. Nzinga A. Harrison, a psychiatrist and national health.
