Photo of the Day: There's a New (and Four-Legged) Cuomo in Town

The New Day family expands, and it looks like our newest member has it out for Chris Cuomo's ankles.

Alabama Cuomo, a lab mix, made a big move to the Big Apple this weekend.

No, the energetic puppy is not from Ohio, Chris says, but from none other than his namesake: the state of Alabama. The Cuomos rescued the mutt, affectionately nicknamed 'Bama, from a shelter.

MH370 Families Seek $5 million for Investigation, Reward

Using dramatic music fit for a Hollywood epic, a video-led fund-raising effort hit the Web this week purportedly to help find answers about missing Malaysia Flight 370.

Several relatives of the 239 people on board appear in a video posted on the crowdsourcing site Indiegogo.

They say nothing, and stare into a camera, solemn-faced. They hold up pieces of papers with their missing relatives' names. "Please help us find the truth," one man's sign implores.

The site aims to raise $5 million.

"OUR effort will not be in opposition to the official investigation, but rather seeks to uncover clues not yet discovered, and to pursue that evidence without interference from parties who are also liability holders in this case," the page reads. "We hope to plug doubts, overcome shortcomings, and improve the number of actionable leads towards in the search for MH370. The accountability of the authorities remains undiluted."

A massive multinational search to scour the southern Indian Ocean where Malaysian authorities said the plane crashed has turned up no wreckage.

California Chrome's Injury 'Superficial'; Owner Continues Criticism

It's going to take two to three weeks for thoroughbred California Chrome to heal from a nasty injury to his hoof, his trainer Art Sherman said Sunday.

"He's got a lot of talent," Sherman said of the colt that was the favorite for the Belmont Stakes but was denied his shot at becoming the first Triple Crown in 36 years. Tonalist was victorious Saturday at the storied race in Elmont, New York. California Chrome finished in a dead heat for fourth with Wicked Strong.

Sherman said the colt's injury occurred during "the first jump."
