    Hyundai Motor has developed a sound system for vehicles in which passengers and the driver can hear different songs or make totally private phone calls. It is the first such system in the world, the carmaker announced Sunday, and will be offered in Hyundai Motor cars within a year or two. Korea’s largest carmaker calls the system a “separated sound zone” and unveiled it on its official website and on YouTube last Sunday. In the YouTube video, classical music plays in the front of the car where two parents are sitting, while pop music plays in the back for children....
  • Rosie’s Big Fat Jam Session at the White House (Trump Wasn’t Even There!)

    The liberal actress and longtime Trump hater Rosie O’Donnell could do so much more with her high profile. She could ask for donations for the poor in our country, organize clothing drives for the needy, give shelter to our struggling American veterans — all with major help from her well-heeled Hollywood pals and her buds from Broadway shows in Manhattan, the ones with the supposedly deep pockets and the endless wells of sympathy for others. Instead, O’Donnell clearly isn’t focused on that right now. She’d rather ride a bus from New York City to Washington, D.C., sing songs with some...

    Kanye West might have worried a little bit about wife Kim Kardashian West when she visited President Donald Trump. The “Fade” rapper, 41, shared his thoughts on the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s visit to the White House in May during a wide-ranging interview with Jimmy Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday night in which the musician spoke about everything from his love of Trump, porn and his Bipolar diagnosis. When Kimmel, 50, asked West how he felt about the reality star meeting Trump on behalf of a 62-year-old great-grandmother who was incarcerated for 22 years, the father...

    Director Stan Zimmerman’s production of the classic play “The Diary of Anne Frank,” seems to be an exercise in seeing just how many people this jackass can demean, denigrate, and degrade, while extolling the holy illegal alien as a paragon of virtuous struggle. Zimmerman’s effort to reimagine mangle the horrifying experience of a young woman and her family trying to avoid extermination is a cheap ploy to promote an onerous open borders agenda, while wrapping himself in the figurative pelts of Holocaust victims as protection against well-deserved condemnation. The cast is a diverse (read: filled with an appropriate number of...

    Last year after the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton took in a lot of theater in New York, as she attended shows like Sunset Blvd., and Come From Away, where she received standing ovations for just being out in public instead of the Oval Office. Bette Midler recently returned to role of Dolly Levi in the smash hit musical Hello, Dolly on Broadway, taking over for Bernadette Peters, who replaced Midler when she originally left the revival. Midler will remain with the show through the remainder of its run, which ends on August 25, and Clinton decided to see her before...

    O.S. Kelly, a historic Springfield firm that produces piano plates for Steinway and Sons, is ramping up hiring for the first time in years as Steinway looks to shift some work here to free up space at its own facilities. Since the 1930s, workers at O.S. Kelly have produced cast-iron plates that are a key to the pianos Steinway and Sons produce in Long Island, N.Y. and Hamburg, Germany. The plates, which can weigh up to 350 pounds, tie together the guts of the pianos said Rob Hill, plant manager at Kelly. The plates demand a high level of precision,...
