WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. Postal Service said Friday it lost $5 billion over the past year, and postal officials again urged Congress to pass legislation to help the beleaguered agency solve its financial woes.
In a positive sign, the loss was a fraction of the record $15.9 billion the Postal Service reported losing last year. But it was still the agency's seventh straight annual loss and came despite its first growth in revenue since 2008.
Operating revenue rose 1.2 percent to $66 billion, thanks to growth in the post office's package delivery business and higher volume in standard mail. That was not enough to offset long-term losses in first class mail — the post office's most profitable service — where revenues declined by 2.4 percent.

Maybe, somewhere way out there, aliens have their version of KFI. Or maybe not.
Much of the Universe remains a mystery to astronomers. That statement holds especially true for an international team of astronomers that discovered strange intergalactic radio signals from 11 billion light years away. For the time being, astronomers have been unable to nail down the origins of these mysterious radio waves, but experts continue to examine the data for clues.
One this is for sure: these radio waves do not originate from terrestrial sources, according to astronomers. Interestingly, their brightness and distance suggest that they come from space distances when the Universe was only half its current age. Additionally, astronomers believe that the burst energetics suggest that they originate from an extreme astrophysical event linked to relativistic objects like neutron stars or black holes.
