  • Archie Harrison: The meaning behind the royal baby's name

    BBC ^ | May 2019 | Francesca Gillett
    Archie means "genuine", "bold" or "brave" - and is more popular in Britain than the US. It was originally a shortened form of Archibald but is now often used as a name on its own. And, rather fittingly, Harrison - a name which was originally used as a surname - means "son of Harry". Mountbatten-Windsor is the surname which was created in 1960, combining the surnames of the Queen and Prince Philip when they married. The double-barrelled name was a concession to the Duke of Edinburgh, who was said to have complained that his children would not bear his name....
  • The 8-Year-Old Ocasio-Cortez Impersonator Is Back, And Her New Video Is Killer

    Ava Martinez is 8 years old and talks in a squeaky high-pitched voice, saying “like” repeatedly. That makes her perfect to play Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (even though she has to dumb it down a bit to make it believable). Ava blew up the internet last month when her stepfather posted a video of her impersonating the New York Democratic socialist. “And, like, I want to talk about, like, climate change, because, like, there’s no doubt that cow farts are making the climate change.”

    With phone spam on the rise, a plucky band is fighting back with practical jokes, air horns and inane conversations about spaghetti When he gets a robocall, Robert B. Eckhardt doesn’t necessarily hang up. If he isn’t too busy, Dr. Eckhardt, a professor of developmental genetics at Pennsylvania State University, stays on the line and asks random questions, such as, “Do your parents know what you’re doing?” If he can string the caller along for 10 minutes, Dr. Eckhardt considers it a minor victory in the war against telephone spam. Most people get annoyed by calls from telemarketers or scam...

    I bought a new Dodge 3500 Ram Tri-Flex Fuel Truck It'll run on hydrogen, gasoline, or E85. Had to go back to the dealer because I couldn't get the radio to work. The service technician explained that the radio was voice-activated. 'Nelson', the technician said to the radio. The radio replied, 'Ricky or Willie?' 'Willie!' he continued, and 'On The Road Again' came from the speakers. Then he said, 'Ray Charles!', and in an instant 'Georgia On My Mind' replaced Willie Nelson. I drove away happy, and for the next few days, every time I'd say, 'Beethoven', I'd get beautiful...

    Baby Scales A blonde holding a baby walks into a drug store and asks the clerk if she can use the store’s baby scale. “Sorry, ma’am,” says the clerk. “Our baby scale is broken. But we can figure the baby’s weight if we weigh mother and baby together on the adult scale, and then weigh the mother alone, and subtract the second number from the first.” “Oh, that won’t work,” says the blonde. “Why not?” asks the clerk. “Because,” she answers, “I’m not the mother - I’m the aunt.”.

    CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The hippo born six weeks early is "making progress toward standing." Cincinnati Zoo officials said the four-day-old hippo has gained almost four pounds since birth, but she's still about 20 lbs. under the low end of a normal birth weight for a Nile hippo. Nursery and animal care staff are with the baby 24 hours a day.

    Baseball is a funny thing. Investing time, energy and focus on a given team or game can bring out the innermost emotions of fans. The seemingly arbitrary on-field events can hold especially powerful emotional weight for the supremely invested, something to which most young fans can attest. One young Pirates fan definitely can, and was caught on-camera riding the emotional rollercoaster in Sunday's tense affair with the Nats at Nationals Park that was eventually won by Pittsburgh, 2-1, in 18 innings. Early on, with the Bucs up, 1-0, this young man was feeling pretty good, throwing around high-fives and being...

    Virginia wildlife rescuers are speaking out against "fawn-napping" after seven people dropped off what they thought were abandoned fawns at the Southwest Virginia Wildlife Rescue of Roanoke over the weekend. A spokeswoman for Roanoke Wildlife Rescue said people often think they are rescuing the baby deer, but, more often than not, what they are doing is "fawn-napping."

    PAY IT FORWARD: Paramedics with the Mehlville Fire Protection District were called to a South County home after a man fell from his roof and broke his leg while working to remove leaves. Paramedics returned to the home after transporting him to a nearby hospital and finished the project the man started - bagging up leaves in his yard. It gets better, an off-duty paramedic brought his personal trailer over to haul away the leaves for this family! What a great act of kindness we felt needed to be shared!

    Boxing Day morning is traditionally a time for long sleeps and leisurely breakfasts. But while most of Britain takes it easy after yesterday’s festivities, little Arthur Jones will be out in the Dorset countryside mending fences. Many winter mornings have seen him out in the fields, hammering tacks into a post, wearing his favourite tweed cap. He also feeds the sheep, rattling a tiny pail containing a handful of pellets. ‘Come on Twinkle!’ he calls to a ewe with a dense white fleece and a calm demeanour, who dutifully trots across to him. So far, so ordinary for a hard-working...
