    He's not 'one of the guys' on the trail, but he also didn't seem to belong in the Ivy League - or even among politicos The weather has finally cooled a bit, and that can only mean one thing: time for Ted Cruz to dump his ill-fitting suits and ties for his even iller-fitting collection of flannel shirts and leather jackets. The #Cruz Country Christmas Tour (in a private jet) is under way and headed to a town near you.Why does the Texas senator lumberjack around America when the temperature drops?

    Matt Taylor, who's a great scientist and seems to also be a pretty cool dude, gave a teary, heartfelt apology for his choice of attire on the day of Rosetta's probe landing. "I made a big mistake, and I offended many people," Taylor said at Friday's media briefing, his voice trembling, "and I'm very sorry about this." With that, the briefing moved onto the science (as it should -- Philae's days are numbered, and we want to find out as much as we can from the little probe that could). Taylor seemed to have trouble speaking for a few minutes,...

But the shop is now shuttered. Neither Ms. Pinto nor her media handler returned calls. Clients were stunned yet not completely surprised by the news, given the economic times. Ms. Pinto...

    Michelle Obama is today launching a campaign to tackle childhood obesity in America – while admitting that she loves unhealthy food. The First Lady has urged children to become more active, but confesses to eating burgers, fries, ice-cream and cake.

It also pushes for schools to offer more healthy meals and calls on food companies to label nutritional information more accurately. Some of her initiatives, such as tax breaks for grocery stores to move into poorly served communities,...

    Schools are following Tesco's example and taking a stand against parents who turn up at the gates wearing pyjamas. They are chastising parents for dropping children off - and collecting them in the afternoon - without first changing out of their nightwear and slippers. One head has written to parents warning that their failure to get dressed for the school run is 'slovenly and rude'. He took action after up to 50 mothers a day began arriving in the mornings wearing pyjamas and slippers. The moves comes after a Tesco store in Cardiff took the unprecedented step of banning customers...
