  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Carly Fiorina fails to register domain name, trolling ensues

    4 May 2015 | 6:47 am
    Carly Fiorina, a former Hewlett-Packard CEO running for president, has no political experience. Campaigning for president will be a learning process, then, and the first lesson came Monday with the revelation that Fiorina neglected to nail down at least one obvious domain name ahead of her launch. As a result, the site carlyfiorina.org displays no information about Fiorina's vision for America, but rather thousands of mocking emoticons representing HP layoffs under her watch. Fiorina is not the first 2016 candidate to run into this problem. Domain squatters also trolled Sen. Ted Cruz…
  • Celebrate Star Wars Day with a new behind-the-scenes look at Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 6:15 am
    Every year, Star Wars fans celebrate what's informally known as Star Wars Day by greeting each other with the phrase "May the Fourth be with you." It's a quaint old tradition, but this year, Vanity Fair is giving fans a very generous Star Wars Day gift: a new behind-the-scenes look at Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The brief glimpse of Vanity Fair photographer Annie Leibovitz's visit to the set yields some intriguing new images, including shots of the new characters played by Daisy Ridley, Lupita Nyong'o, and Adam Driver, seen without his mask for the first time. To look at the full portfolio…
  • Bill Clinton says his foundation never did anything 'knowingly inappropriate'

    4 May 2015 | 5:59 am
    While the Clinton Foundation has accepted millions of dollars in foreign donations while Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state, Bill Clinton says that if the foundation broke any rules or could be considered a conflict of interest, he wasn't aware of it. "There is no doubt in my mind that we have never done anything knowingly inappropriate in terms of taking money to influence any kind of American government policy," Clinton told NBC News. "That just hasn't happened." Clinton added that the foundation will "come as close as we can during [Hillary Clinton's] presidential campaign to…

    4 May 2015 | 5:13 am
    In an interview on ABC's Good Morning America, Carly Fiorina formally announced that she will seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. "Yes, I am running for president," Fiorina told George Stephanopoulos. "I think I'm the best person for the job, because I understand how the economy actually works. I understand the world, who's in it, how the world works." She added that America's government has turned into "a giant, bloated, unaccountable, corrupt bureaucracy." Fiorina, a former Hewlett-Packard executive, doesn't believe that the fact she's never held an elected office…

  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

Will and Kate left the hospital with their new princess on Saturday evening, but at the time of her birth, the baby did not have a name. Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George.

  • Carly Fiorina fails to register domain name, trolling ensues

    4 May 2015 | 6:47 am
    Carly Fiorina, a former Hewlett-Packard CEO running for president, has no political experience. Campaigning for president will be a learning process, then, and the first lesson came Monday with the revelation that Fiorina neglected to nail down at least one obvious domain name ahead of her launch. As a result, the site carlyfiorina.org displays no information about Fiorina's vision for America, but rather thousands of mocking emoticons representing HP layoffs under her watch. Fiorina is not the first 2016 candidate to run into this problem. Domain squatters also trolled Sen. Ted Cruz…

  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

    If you placed your money on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge naming their daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, now is the time to claim your winnings. Will and Kate left the hospital with their new princess on Saturday evening, but at the time of her birth, the baby did not have a name. Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…

Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…
  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…
  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…
  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…
  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…
  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…
  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…
  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…
  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…
  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…
  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…
  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…
  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…
  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…
  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…
  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…
  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…
  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…
  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…
  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…
  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…
  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…
  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…
  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…
  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…
  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…
  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…
  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…
  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…
  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…
  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…
  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…
  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…
  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…
  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…
  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…
  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.

Now, the U.K.'s ITV News reports that the baby's name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. According to The Guardian, Charlotte is the closest female in line for the throne since Princess Anne's birth, almost…
  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    4 May 2015 | 6:52 am
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will. But he's not actually a wolf in…

  • Authorities identify one suspect in Texas shooting

    4 May 2015 | 7:46 am
    Authorities on Monday identified one of the two gunmen in Sunday's attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, as Elton Simpson of Phoenix. Police, FBI agents, and a bomb squad searched Simpson's home overnight, and investigators linked him to threatening Twitter messages posted just ahead of the attack, according to ABC. Though officials have yet to offer a motive, Simpson was charged in 2010 with attempting to visit Somalia "for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad." The event at the center of the attack, the Muhammad Art Exhibit, included a contest in which contestants competed…
  • 96 percent of Americans think racial disturbances this summer are 'likely'

    4 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    A new poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that Americans don't think this year's racial tensions will stop with Baltimore. A full 96 percent of respondents said that it was "likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer," the Journal reports. The respondents differed on the explanation for the events, though. Sixty percent of black respondents agreed that recent events reflect "long-standing frustrations about police mistreatment of African-Americans," but just 32 percent of white respondents agreed. And 27 percent of black respondents agreed that people…
  • J.J. Abrams thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII

    4 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    There are few Star Wars characters — or, for that matter, few movie characters — more despised than Jar Jar Binks. The clumsy, gibbering alien, who made a splashy debut in Star Wars: Episode I in 1999, was so widely hated that an editor painstakingly cobbled together a widely-distributed recut of Episode I that eliminates Jar Jar almost entirely. Jar Jar doesn't appear in the original Star Wars trilogy, which means his whereabouts in the decades after Star Wars: Episode III are unknown. But Jar Jar haters will appreciate the canonical solution proposed for Episode VII by director J.J.
