    An Absurdly Cool Behind-The-Scenes Look At The Jurassic Park Dinosaur Puppets The late great Stan Winston was one of the undisputed masters of cinematic effects. With his team of make-up artists and puppeteers, Winston gave such films as Aliens and Predator an otherworldly sheen that's been seared into the collective memory of moviegoers for decades. And on the Stan Winston School's YouTube account, there are tons of behind-the-scenes reels of the dinosaurs from the Jurassic Park films. Behold amazing footage of the velociraptors and Tyrannosaurus hanging out casually with their human puppet masters.

    The nation has not endured a presidential assassination since John F. Kennedy was killed in Dallas in 1963. That is largely because of the dedication of Secret Service agents. But since the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) took over the Secret Service in 2003, the agency has been cutting corners to the point where the lives of President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and other protectees are endangered. That is the opinion of a number of current Secret Service agents who have told me for my book, “In the President’s Secret Service: Behind the Scenes with Agents in the...

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Controlled chaos, NASCAR style. The commotion in the NASCAR control tower begins 30 minutes before the race. Phones are ringing, radios tested, replay monitors checked and rechecked. When all the equipment is working, the command is given for the national anthem to begin. Shortly thereafter, it's time to race. "Tower to flag stand," Winston Cup director John Darby radios down below him. "Let's rock and roll, boys." From a small booth high above the race track, NASCAR's leaders settle in to call the race. There are six voices often yelling over one another, an occasional moment...
