The U.S. Postal Service is forecasting a record holiday shipping surge, saying 20 percent more packages will be delivered this year than last year, thanks to a growing number of us shopping online. In total, nearly 18 billion cards, letters and packages will be delivered between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve.
A new report by the CDC says U.S. service members in Afghanistan battle zones who consumed three or more energy drinks a day were actually more likely to doze off while on guard duty.

Wendy's may expand the number of locations in the U.S. by more than a third as it remodels restaurants. The burger chain is trying to entice customers by offering more premium menu items as well as breakfast.
