    Wonder Woman is using her super powers to stand up for women in Hollywood. A month after canceling to appear at a dinner to honor Brett Ratner, Gal Gadot still has a lot to say about the famed director and the accusations mounting against him. Now, Gal says she won't reprise her role for future "Wonder Woman" movies unless Brett Ratner is not involved, reports Page Six. Brett Ratner's production company produced the film in conjunction with Warner Brothers. "Wonder Woman" has already brought in over $400 million. But if Gal Gadot has anything to say about it, the producer...

    Wonder Woman is a feminist. She’s certainly been considered an icon of feminism at different times throughout her 76-year career. In the early ’40s, when she first debuted in All-American Comics, she freed herself from chains, a symbol used by the suffragists to represent patriarchy. When Ms. launched in 1972, Wonder Woman graced its cover, solidifying her place as a feminist figure.

    The UN has ended its campaign with comic book heroine Wonder Woman, a spokesman says, less than two months after her appointment sparked outrage. The superhero had been declared an honorary ambassador to promote messages about women's empowerment and gender-based violence. The character's "sexualised" appearance was one element critics seized on to deem the choice inappropriate. A petition against the selection gathered nearly 45,000 signatures. The UN did not explain why the project with Wonder Woman, announced in October, would end on Friday. But spokesman Jeffrey Brez said campaigns using fictional characters often lasted no longer than a few months,...

    In the secular world a “mystery” is something which baffles or eludes understanding, something which lies undisclosed. And the usual attitude of the world toward mystery is to resolve it, get to the bottom of, or uncover it. Mysteries must be overcome! The riddle, or “who-done-it” must be solved!

    Forty-one days after legendary Motown singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder vowed to boycott Florida, Miami Beach’s sultry sultry summer evenings called out to him and he couldn’t resist. Jose’ Lambeit’s Gossip Extra broke the story Tuesday that the legendary recording artist spent the weekend in South Florida’s legendary South Beach before jetting off to Los Angeles. During a Canadian performance on July 14, Wonder told the audience he would boycott Florida, saying, “for those of you who’ve lost in the battle for justice.. we can’t bring them back. What we can do is we can let our voices be heard.” He made...

    In the wake of the George Zimmerman acquittal, the singer said he would not be performing in the Sunshine State until its Stand Your Ground law is "abolished." He also said he would not be performing in any other state that recognizes the law, which some say contributed to Zimmerman's acquittal in the shooting death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26, 2012.

Remember; they are all in the same camp. They know 9-11 is the anniversary; They know the muslims are not partial to them; (homosexuals) Mr Obama knows a crisis is a bad thing to waste; they know Mr Obama will probably try to use that for his takeover that...

    No wonder they hate Governor Scott Walker. Oshkosh teachers were getting 90 sick days a year… They only worked 180 days a year. Charlie Sykes reported: This is what the Walker reforms look like in practice. One dazzling detail: up until now Oshkosh teachers got 90 sick days a year. Unions representing teachers and other Oshkosh school district workers agreed to freeze wages, pay more for their benefits and allow administration to change health insurance providers in exchange for a one-year extension of their collective bargaining agreements. The tentative contracts with the teachers’ union, paraprofessionals’ union and non-teaching employees’ union...

    I found out about this place because of a news item about the "New 7 Wonders" of the world. It's a nominee. Now, I don't expect that I'll have any travel plans that take me to Beirut, but if for some strange reason I ended up there, I would have to see this place. I think one of the amazing things about the Internet is that it allows us to see places that we'll probably never have a chance to visit. I've posted a lot of those as these Geology Pictures of the Week. I hope I'll get to see...

"The Girl Is Mine," his duet with Michael Jackson, has the No. 6 spot. Elton John and David Bowie also have two collaborations on the worst list. Elton's "Live 8" performance of "Children of the Revolution" with British rocker Pete Doherty is coming in at...

World's Greatest Wife (WGW) and I went to Dr. DNA today on orders from the OB/GYN (henceforth known as "Dr. Uterus"). Mission: genetic counseling, that transparent exercise in medical ass-covery that allows physicians to shrug, hold up their hands in a gesture of innocence, and say "don't blame me" in a court of equity if the kid turns out to have crab claws or something. Seriously, though, the cute "genetic counselor" lady told us about amnio (no thanks), asked us about our...
