Dozens of Dogs Hit the Waves at Surf Competition

  Dozens of Dogs Hit the Waves at Surf Competition The competition is in its ninth year. Cowabunga, dog!Dozens of canines hit the waves over the weekend at the annual Surf City Surf Dog competition in California.The Saturday event, which is in its ninth year, brought 40 dogs and their owners from across Southern California to catch waves and raise money for charity.Dogs clad in everything from fun sunglasses to cool collars rode one- to 3-foot waves."Our surfer dogs are judged on different points like how long they've ridden the waves [and] style points, so it's a lot like regular human surfers,” said Marcie Taylor, an organizer of the competition.

The Nobel Physics Prize honors big discoveries involving materials often too small to be seen by the naked eye.

The 2017 prize being announced Tuesday by Sweden's Royal Academy of Sciences comes with 9 million kronor (C$1.38M). For the past 25 years, the prize has been shared among multiple winners.

The 2016 prize went to three British-born researchers who applied the mathematical discipline of topology to help understand the workings of exotic matter such as superconductors and superfluids. In 2014, a Japanese and a Canadian shared the physics prize for studies that proved that the elementary particles called neutrinos have mass.

This year's Nobel medicine prize went Monday to three Americans studying circadian rhythms — better known as body clocks: Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W. Young.
