Say ‘formaggio’

Vox popular: Pope Francis continued his penchant for breaking with tradition, speaking off the cuff during his Palm Sunday address in St. Peter’s Square and leaping out of his popemobile to pose for “selfies” with young people.

The Vatican’s security team put its foot down, however, when Francis went to leap backward into a throng of people to do some crowd surfing.



Backup, schmackup: NASA says it will go ahead with the launch of a resupply mission despite the failure of a backup computer aboard the International Space Station.

It was particularly bad timing for NASA, coming just days after Microsoft announced it was no longer offering tech support for Windows XP.



Don’t know much about history: On this day in 1910, President William Howard Taft became the first U.S. chief executive to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at a baseball game.

Coincidentally, it was Handlebar Mustache Knit Top Hat Night at the stadium, and a portly man from Baltimore wearing one of the hats was initially mistaken for the president.
