This is such an awesome thing!

Tragically, NYPD officer Rafael Ramos was executed this weekend while on patrol in his car — and he left behind two sons. 13-year-old Jaden Ramos is still in middle school and Justin attends Bowdoin College in Maine.

Luckily, New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner started the Yankee Silver Shield Foundation in 1982, which pays for the education of children who lost a parent in the line of duty. So, both of the boys will still get to have the best schooling possible.

In a new twist to the Sony hacking scandal, North Korea so strongly denies that they're behind the cyberattack, that they've offered to help the United States find the hackers.

Well, really, they threatened the U.S. to let them help, or to suffer "serious consequences."

On Saturday, a spokesman for the country relayed a message, stating:

"The U.S. should bear in mind that it will face serious consequences in case it rejects our proposal for joint investigation and presses for what it called countermeasures. We have a way to prove that we have nothing to do with the case without resorting to torture, as what the C.I.A. does."
