Who won the Tour de France between 1998 and 2005?

American cyclist Lance Armstrong was declared the winner of those seven races, but he was stripped of his titles and winnings after being caught in a doping scandal. Late last week, the International Cycling Union, the sport's governing body, announced that it would not award Armstrong's titles to any other riders or upgrade the standings in those seven races. That means, officially, there was no winner for seven years.

Is Arnold Schwarzenegger done making movies?

For better or worse, the former action-movie star and ex-governor of California is returning to the big screen. He will reprise his role as Conan the Barbarian 30 years after making the first two "Conan" films.

The wolves are particularly vulnerable to rabies, which largely decimated their number.
