The Air Force believes that it's solved the years-long mystery of why F-22 pilots have suffered potentially dangerous, hypoxia-like symptoms aboard the world's most advanced jet fighter. And the answer is so insanely simple, some Congressmen don't believe it. It's primarily clothing! According to Congressional Testimony by NASA and Air Force experts earlier this month, the problem lies with an inflatable combat vest that was worn -- in combination with rubberized cold-weather survival gear needed for ejection by pilots over cold water.

The National Institute of Health estimates that about 70 million Americans are plagued by sleeping problems.

According the National Weather Service Records, on Feb. 3, 1947, Anchorage recorded its all-time lowest temperature of minus 38 degrees. Records begin in 1914. That coldest reading was measured at the east end of 5th Avenue, what is now the Merrill Field area. That cold spell reached into Canada as well -- on the same day Canadians recorded a minus 81 degree temperature just 20 miles from the border with Alaska.

Yet others in the Interior argue the investigation was flawed, saying police abused their power and as a result the wrong people were convicted.
