    Kelly Ripa is on vacation this week so Live With Kelly and Michael scrambled to find women capable of making moms (and bloggers at home) laugh at crappy jokes. Today’s guest host was Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton. You may have heard of her. During the show’s opening monologue, while Michael told a riveting story about Kate Upton in a robe, ABC cutaway to breaking news. The U.S. had just launched airstrikes in Iraq against Islamic militant group, ISIS. Important news no doubt, and certainly worthy of interrupting Michael Strahan’s boring story about a half-naked Kate Upton and wait,...

    Once upon a time an American family’s home was their castle and the bigger the better, but growing concerns about meeting mortgage payments and the environmental impact of large houses has helped fuel a new movement of people who are happy to live small. The Tiny House Movement is a growing group of people who are happy to downsize the space that they live in and enjoy simplified lives as a result. While the average American home is around 2600 square feet, the typical small or tiny house is around 100-400 square feet.

    I vividly remember entering the California Institution for Women for the first time in 2001. As the prison guard slammed the gate behind me, I wondered if I had made the right decision to become a volunteer for an inmate support group. But my nerves were eased by a woman who introduced herself as “Krenny.” Welcoming me into the group, she seemed quiet and insecure — yet also exuded an inner strength. I had no idea how she got here and didn’t ask. It was only several years later, while documenting the support group for a documentary film, “Sin by...

The caller, who was not named by West Midlands Police, contacted emergency operators while arguing with the owner of an ice cream van. During a minute-long call, the indignant woman told the operator: "It doesn't seem like much of an emergency but it is a little bit because I've ordered an ice cream and he's put bits on one side and none of the other.

His left leg had to be amputated from the knee down and was given a physical service dog, Beanz, through a national organization called Canine Companions for Independence. However, as soon as he walked through the door of the coffee chain, the trouble started. A Starbucks employee approached him as he entered with Beanz, his service dog. 'You can't have dogs in here,' the worker yelled at him. It was in your face, loud and bold....

Photographs of 10 women were shown, each with three digitally altered body shapes - curvaceous, much less curvaceous and in-between.

At least not in The Intempo skyscraper in Benidorm, Spain, according to Gizmodo’s Jamie Condliffe: Initially designed to be a mere 20 storeys tall, the developers got over-excited and pushed the height way up: now it boasts 47 storeys, and will include 269 homes. But that push for more accommodation came at a cost. The original design obviously included specifications for an elevator big enough for a 20-storey building. In the...

    Sagging? “Sagging is a manner of wearing trousers (slacks, shorts, pants or jeans) below the waist, revealing much of the underwear. Sagging is predominantly a male fashion.” According to Greg Mathis; the retired Michigan 36th District Court Judge and syndicated Television show judge, sagging was adopted from the U.S. prison system where belts are prohibited. The style was later popularized by hip-hop artists in the 1990s. It has since become a symbol of freedom and cultural awareness among some youths or a symbol of their rejection of the values of mainstream society. Just prior to the 2008 Presidential Election, Barrack...

    Actor and comedian Jay Mohr waded into the gun debate on Twitter after Monday’s deadly terrorist attacks at the Boston Marathon. “What bothers me most about today is that we’re getting used 2 it. ENOUGH. 2nd amendment must go. Violence has 2 stop. Culture MUST change,” the Jerry Maguire actor tweeted Monday night. What bothers me most about today is that we’re getting used 2 it.

    It hasn't taken long for liberals to start blaming former governor Sarah Palin for the terrorist attacks in Boston this afternoon. Just hours after the horrific attack that has left at least two dead and possibly over 100 injured, the Left was more than happy to start slinging accusations. User @polospal, who describes herself as an "Opinionated. Outspoken. Proud Democrat." tweeted: ...Yet another person suspected that Palin herself was a part of the attacks:

    How many gun control advocates does it take to screw in a light bulb? Answer: They don't do that; they pass laws against burned-out bulbs, and then they wonder why it's still so dark. Meanwhile, a lot of people get hurt because they can't see. "If gun laws in fact worked, the sponsors of this type of legislation should have no difficulty drawing upon long lists of examples of crime rates reduced by such legislation. That they cannot do so after a century and a half of trying--that they must sweep under the rug the southern attempts at gun...

    A question with a more obvious answer might yet be asked on national TV this morning, but someone's going to have to try very hard . . . On today's Morning Joe, during a segment on the Atlanta school-test scandal, Mike Barnicle actually wondered out loud why more top college grads take jobs with high-tech firms like Google, or in the financial-services sector, instead of teaching. Barnicle had earlier declared that standardized tests don't teach kids how to think. Might Mike have taken one such test too many in his day? When Willie Geist gently pointed out the obvious to...

    Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, buzzed about as a potential 2016 presidential candidate if Hillary Clinton doesn't run, did not rule out an eventual bid when asked about it Tuesday. The former long-serving Arizona governor instead brushed off the question, joking that she's too busy keeping U.S. borders safe to consider a race. At a breakfast interview hosted by the Christian Science Monitor, she said, "my plate is so full now that that kind of contemplation would be the kind of thing that would keep me up at night, and I lose enough sleep as it is."

    March 25, 2013 Ashley Judd suggests puzzling location for campaign headquarters Alex Pappas Liberal actress Ashley Judd has a puzzling location in mind for where she’d like to establish a campaign headquarters should she run for the U.S. Senate in Kentucky. During a keynote speech at the American Counseling Association’s 2013 conference in Cincinnati on Friday, Judd said that she’d use her famous mother’s garage as a campaign headquarters, according to local media reports. The problem? Her mother, country singer Naomi Judd, lives in Tennessee. Naomi Judd’s Leipers Fork, Tenn. home was featured on HGTV’s “Celebrities At Home” in June....
  • Donald Trump Trashes Michelle Malkin on Twitter: You’re A ‘Dummy’ And ‘Were Born Stupid’

    So… looks like Michelle Malkin and Donald Trump are having a good ol’ Twitter spat. Malkin’s conservative Twitter aggregator site Twitchy took to calling the real estate mogul and recent CPAC speaker Trump a “conservafraud.” Shortly thereafter, Malkin took to Twitter — as she is wont to do — to ask Trump why he once called her a “dummy” and “smeared” her “past.” She noted for her conservative audience that Trump was a supporter of “socialized medicine” and an abuser of eminent domain (It’s true — as I wrote last year, Trump is a “crony capitalist” who has, on multiple...

    And then I read this.... On January 1, 400 new federal laws took effect. Meanwhile, state legislatures passed 29,000 bills and resolutions, many of which came into force on the first of the year. Local government added thousands of new laws. Ignorance is no excuse, so start cramming on all the weird new regulations you have to follow as of Tuesday: 1. In California, it's now unlawful to let a dog pursue a bear or bobcat at any time. Previously, exceptions had been made for hunting. Bad news for dogs, good news for bears and bobcats. 2. The new...
