Detroit is the most bedbug-infested city in the U.S.

Carolyn Kaster/ASSOCIATED PRESS No one likes bedbugs. But Detroit is dealing with them in droves. Detroit is new bug city. The heavy metal town is also the itchiest in the country, topping a new list of the worst metro areas for bedbugs. Rock City bumped Philadelphia from the top spot on the Terminix list for the first time in four years - but the city of City of Brotherly Love is still scratching in second place. New Yorkers can sleep easy, since far fewer bedbugs are reportedly biting in the Big Apple. The city plummeted from No. 3 to No. 15 on the scratch-inducing chart. JEFF KOWALSKY/EPA Detroit — Bedbug City The exterminating company crafted the flesh-crawling chart by compiling call data from more than 300 Terminix branches across the country. Bedbug populations have been growing si

Beatles fans were certainly in the mood to "Come Together" this holiday season. Two days after Spotify released the Fab Four's entire catalog, the popular music service told Rolling Stone that "Come Together" was the band's most-streamed song in the United States, the United Kingdom and worldwide on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. "Hey Jude," meanwhile, was the consensus number two in both America and the UK, though the seminal Paul McCartney hit ranked third on the global list, behind "Let It Be."

Harry Houdini may not have escaped death — but the legendary magician is still remembered for his daring acts. The Hungarian-born American illusionist died at 52 on Halloween day in 1926 — not from a tragic end to one of his famous feats, but from a ruptured appendix.

Technology
Share This article Hurricane Patricia, the most intense tropical cyclone ever observed in the Western Hemisphere and the strongest storm ever recorded in terms of sustained winds, is now headed for the coast of Mexico. Normally, strong hurricanes develop over a period of a week or more; meteorologists track such storms as they move across the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans and warn island and coastal populations days before the storm actually hits. In this case, Patricia has exploded in less than three days. At 5 AM EST on Thursday, Patricia had sustained winds of 85 miles per hour. By 5 AM on Friday, the storm had reached 200 mph sustained winds. Meteorologists took these measurements by flying into the hurricane itself, and the storm’s path is now considered locked-in.
