    Just a week into her reign as Miss America 2015, Kira Kazantsev has had to answer questions about a three month internship at Planned Parenthood and getting kicked out of her Hofstra University sorority for abusive hazing. “Under the broad definition of hazing, yes, I was involved,” Kazantsev told "Good Morning America" on Tuesday. “At the time, unfortunately, that was just the culture of the university, and I was hazed, and I was kind of brought up through the organization thinking that is appropriate behavior.” While the story made headlines and forced Kazantsev to explain her actions on national television,...

    But Kazantsev was no Miss Congeniality at Hofstra University, where she was expelled from her sorority last year for hazing new recruits. On her resume, Kazantsev lists that she was new member educator and recruitment committee president for the university's chapter of Alpha Phi, a position she reportedly shared with her best friend in the spring term of 2013. A source told Jezebel that Kazantsev and her friend made the pledges' lives 'a living hell' by calling them names, and berating them over physical flaws. The terrifying duo reportedly made the new members perform certain physical tasks to the point...

    Normally, there is a pretty clear distinction between the public and private sectors. There also seems to be a pretty clear definition of the energy sector (fuel extraction, refining, power generation). However, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) now seems to think the opposite, the public sector is the private sector and everyone that’s not in the energy sector now is. The DOE will be kicking off an event tomorrow (Wednesday, November 13, 2013) with a forum on Minorities and Energy. This forum is a part of the Minorities in Energy Initiative which “seeks to empower businesses, communities, schools and...

    Miss America is back in town. After being exiled to Las Vegas for seven years, the pageant moved home to its birthplace for an end-of-summer carnival of kitsch and kicks, beautiful women romping in the sand and dipping toes in the sea, and showing their gams to the boardwalk empire. That's entertainment -- and it's big business. The founders in 1921 were the Atlantic City Businessmen's League, eager to keep tourists in town for one final week after Labor Day, a fall frolic before cool weather closed the beach and the boardwalk. Newspapers in those days often ran beauty...

    There have been many ugly tweets and other nasty comments about the new Miss America, Syracuse, NY born and aspiring cardiologist Nina Davuluri. The former Miss New York is of Indian descent; many of the negative commenters thought she was Arab and/or Muslim. Not so incidentally there were also many positive tweets and comments. Paradoxically, according to Malika Rao writing in The Huffington Post, Davuluri would never have won a similar pageant in her parents' native India because she was too...dark.

    PURCELLVILLE, Va. — It’s a startling contrast to some observers — the glamorous, bikini-clad Miss America from 2011, Teresa Scanlan, finding her home at the tiny, super-conservative Patrick Henry College. The school requires students to dress modestly and “seek parental counsel when pursuing a romantic relationship.” But the match has been a good one. Scanlan returned to campus in late August to begin her sophomore year. Among the things she loves about her classmates and her campus: “I’ve never had to sign an autograph, and I’ve never had to take a picture. Here, I can be just another student,” she...

Not surprisingly, the rising American Studies senior from Swanton, Maryland, chose the bright lights over the cold winters of Ithaca. She let her Alpha Phi sorority sisters know in an excruciatingly self-involved, 840-word letter made public on the blog Ivy Gate, where she has earned more ridicule than praise for her decision to focus on the competition more than her schooling.

At the time of this writing, of 323 respondents, 93% agree with...

    Not since Christians were thrown to Lions inside Roman coliseums have Christians been in such danger. The Beast that is the Homosexual movement has bared its ugly fangs and is slashing with razor like claws. This Beast is hell bend on turning the whole world homosexual through the world powers of the United Nations, U.S. Courts, various U.S. state legislatures, and U.S. politicians. Don’t be mistaken this is an ultimate demonstration of homosexual’s political fascist power.

    The Miss America contest is stupid and dated and we crowned a new winner in Vegas on Saturday night. One of the big surprises to me the last couple of years has been the relocation of the Miss America pageant to Vegas.

    LAS VEGAS -- Miss Michigan Kirsten Haglund, a 19-year-old aspiring Broadway star, was crowned Miss America 2008 on Saturday in a live show billed as the unveiling of the 87-year-old pageant's new, hipper look. Haglund, of Farmington Hills, Mich., sang "Over the Rainbow" and walked a crowd-pleasing strut in a black and gold bikini to clinch the title. She beat Miss Indiana Nicole Elizabeth Rash, the first runner up, and Miss Washington Elyse Umemoto, the second runner up for the $50,000 scholarship and year of travel that comes with the crown. Haglund, who studies music at the University of Cincinnati,...
