Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary is home to thousands of animals, many who have been rescued from a life of abuse.  Mike wraps up the week with a visit to the sanctuary's primate haven where he encountered "Gonga," a Java Macaque.  The monkey is a star fundraiser for Noah's Ark, who scored big on EBay for its masterpiece that brought in more than $600 to the sanctuary. 

Like any eccentric artist, this primate doesn't monkey around.  Mike learns about some its more ambiguous personality traits that are not as obvious as they may seem.

Trapped inside his body, but he's still fighting ALS

Trapped inside his body, but he's still fighting ALS

People are still dumping buckets of water over their heads as  the "ALS Ice Bucket Challenge" continues to bring in huge donations. To date, the viral campaign has raised more than $94 million! The challenge is fun and for a good cause, but at its core, it's about courage and love. The story of Steve and Hope Dezember is a shining example.

Steve was diagnosed with ALS in August of 2011. Two days after receiving the news that would change his life forever, he had another, much happier, life-changing moment when he proposed to his girlfriend of six months, Hope. The two got married a few months later. Now together, they are fighting a disease that has robbed Steve of his ability to speak, eat and even move.

Why are Americans joining ISIS?

Thousands of Westerners have traveled to Syria to fight with the terrorist groups ISIS, and dozens of them are Americans.

Over the weekend, Douglas McCain, a 33-year-old man from Minnesota, was killed fighting for ISIS. Yesterday, pro-U.S. rebels in Syria claimed they killed a second American jihadist. And there are more Americans fighting against their country, which is alarming, according to White House spokesman John Earnest.
