Caleb Moore (January 1, 1987 – January 31, 2013) was an American professional snowmobile racer and the first person to die as a result of injuries sustained during the X Games.

Moore was injured on January 24, 2013, during the Snowmobile Freestyle part of Winter X Games XVII which were held in Aspen, Colorado. He was attempting a backflip (a trick he had done several times before) when the skis on his snowmobile were snagged on the ground as he was about to land. As a result, Moore was flipped over the handlebars and landed on the ground. He was then hit by the snowmobile. His brother Colten also was injured on the same day, sustaining a separated pelvis.

Moore was able to leave the scene under his own strength and he was taken to a hospital to receive treatment for a concussion. Doctors later discovered bleeding around the heart, and he was diagnosed with a heart contusion. He was airlifted to St. Mary’s Hospital, where he underwent surgery. Later, it was announced by a family spokesman that he had developed a complication in his brain. His condition deteriorated and he died at the age of 26 on January 31, 2013.

State District Judge Larry Mitchell, in Dallas, rescheduled Kimberly McCarthy’s punishment for April 3 so lawyers for the former nursing home therapist could have more time to pursue an appeal focused on whether her predominantly white jury was improperly selected on the basis of race. McCarthy is black.

Ashley Judd 44,  and husband Dario Franchitti 39, has decided to separate.  “We have mutually decided to end our marriage. We’ll always be family and continue to cherish our relationship based on the special love, integrity, and respect we have always enjoyed,” the couple said via a statement to People Magazine.

“The point is, we’re always so quick to say, ‘That hurt my feelings,’ so how about being as quick to say, ‘I really appreciated it when you turned the TV down so we could hear each other.’ Dario and I do an appreciation every day,” Judd said, explaining that the point of the exercise was to ensure that “even when one is cross, to get some gratitude on board.”
