USA soccer team eliminated from World Cup in stunning loss

Team USA's soccer team allowed Trinidad & Tobago to win for just the first time in nine outings for World Cup Qualifiers. Here's more from News 4 Tucson sportscast:

  After the 2-1 loss, the United States was eliminated from qualifying for the World Cup.  It'll be the first time since 1982 that the USA doesn't take part in the World Cup.  Here's more from the Associated Press:

Next year's World Cup won't include the United States.
    
The Americans were eliminated in their final qualifying match on Tuesday, dropping a 2-1 decision at Trinidad. The outcome ends a U.S. streak of seven straight appearances at soccer's showcase.
    
The 28th-ranked Americans needed merely a tie against 99th-ranked Trinidad, which lost its sixth straight qualifier last week. But the defeat, coupled with Honduras' come-from-behind 3-2 win over Mexico and Panama's 2-1 victory over Costa Rica, dropped the Americans from third place to fifth in the six-nation final round of the North and Central American and Caribbean region.
    
Meanwhile, Lionel Messi's hat trick led Brazil to a 3-1 win over Ecuador and a berth in the World Cup. Portugal and France also earned spots in next year's tournament at Russia.

    Dolphins and whales speak in accents. They have “hit” songs. They have names for each other and they might gossip. A new study shows the most social dolphins and whales also have larger, more complex brains. It’s the latest study supporting the idea that big brains evolved to handle the demands of socializing, and not for some other reason. In other words, humans may be so intelligent because we gossip. “What we can say for sure with the dolphins and whales ...
