US President Barack Obama pardons the National Thanksgiving Turkey "Cheese" during the annual ceremony in the Grand Foyer of the White House on November 26, 2014 in Washington, DCIt is an odd tradition, to be sure. For the sixth time, Barack Obama did the job on Wednesday, sparing a bird at a ceremony at which he was joined by his (somewhat underwhelmed) daughters Sasha and Malia, 13 and 16. The myth behind the tradition is that -- after overexposure to the media in Washington -- once pardoned, the rotund turkey will spend the rest of its happy days lolling around, far from anyone's plate.

Scott Kurdilla, a medical research technologist at Carnegie Mellon University, waits for a volunteer for a brain scan experiment on campus in Pittsburgh on Wednesday Nov. 26, 2014. The brain-scanning MRI machine at the center was used in a recent experiment where each word of a chapter of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" was flashed for half a second onto a screen inside a brain-scanning MRI machine. Images showing combinations of data and graphics were collected. (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic)WASHINGTON (AP) — Reading about Harry Potter's adventures learning to fly his broomstick activates some of the same regions in the brain we use to perceive real people's actions and intentions.

This NOAA satellite image taken Wednesday, Nov. 26, 2014, at 12:45 a.m. EST shows a long frontal boundary extending from the Atlantic Ocean into the eastern Gulf of Mexico, which is causing a line of rain showers and thunderstorms to develop over the southeastern United States. Behind this front, there is subsidence stabilizing a small area from Wisconsin into the lower Mississippi River Valley which is clearing up the skies. Florida is mainly being affected by the heavy line of thunderstorms with isolated cells off to the east of the Carolinas. A complex low pressure system is also currently over the Northern Plains causing a mixture of rain and snow to fall across this area and other regions of the country. (AP Photo/Weather Underground)MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) — A sloppy mix of rain and snow rolled into the Northeast on Wednesday just as millions of Americans began the big Thanksgiving getaway, grounding hundreds of flights and turning highways hazardous along the congested Washington-to-Boston corridor.
