    Man dies after live roach-eating contest in Fla. MIAMI (AP) — A contestant in a roach-eating contest who downed dozens of live bugs and worms collapsed and died shortly after winning the contest in South Florida, authorities say. About 30 contestants ingested the insects during Friday night's contest at Ben Siegel Reptile Store in Deerfield Beach about 40 miles north of Miami. The grand prize was a python. Edward Archbold, 32, of West Palm Beach became ill shortly after the contest ended and collapsed outside the store, according to a Broward Sheriff's Office statement released Monday. He was taken to...

    In 2010, she wore red. In 2011, she wore white. So, what did Michelle Obama wear in 2012? A politically-charged, patriotic shade of blue. The First Lady looked regal in a short-sleeved, sapphire-blue, Barbara Tfank dress Tuesday evening for the President's State of the Union address. Tfank, a New York and Los Angeles-based designer, prides herself upon designing pieces that are "timeless." [Snip] The First Lady's hair and makeup looked perfectly elegant as well... and we're dying to see some photos of her shoes.

    Infuriated lower Manhattan residents went ballistic on Zuccotti Park protesters at a chaotic Community Board 1 meeting tonight while blasting politicians for allowing the siege to continue without any end in sight. "They are defecating on our doorsteps," fumed Katherine Hughes, a stay at home mom who has the misfortune of living one block from the chaos. "A lot of people are very frustrated. A lot of people are concerned about the safety of our kids." Fed up homeowners said that they've been subjected to insults and harassment as they trek to their jobs each morning.

    A prominent Florida atheist activist has been charged with verbally simulating sex in the presence of a 10-year-old neighbor. Ellen Beth Wachs, 48, was charged with lewd and lascivious behavior. Wachs has been prominent in her opposition to prayer at public meetings and challenged the constitutionality of the sheriff donating jail basketball hoops to Polk County churches. An arrest affidavit said she was arrested following a Saturday morning dispute with a neighbor. According to the affidavit, the 10-year-old boy was playing basketball when Wachs yelled through her open bedroom window for him to stop. The boy was joined outside by...

    A Jefferson High School dance coach was free on bail Tuesday after her arrest on allegations she had a relationship with an 18-year-old male student, officials said. Destini Michelle Munoz, 25, was released from a holding cell at the city magistrate's office after posting $15,000 bail around 9:50 a.m., charged with one count of being involved in an improper relationship between an educator and a student, Bexar County records show. San Antonio Independent School District police and the Texas Rangers arrested her about 11 p.m. Monday. A student told her mother about Munoz's alleged relationship, and the parent called district...

    With her husband facing electoral oblivion at next week's mid-terms, Michelle Obama is clearly prepared to do anything she can to help. Whether showing off her dance moves on Ellen was a politically astute gimmick, however, remains to be seen. The First Lady appeared on the daytime chat show just hours after her husband went on The Jon Stewart Show in a desperate attempt to woo younger voters. The President has been attacked for appearing on a comparatively lightweight show hosted by a comedian. At one point Stewart even called him 'dude', the first time word has been used...

    Of course, the subtitle of Sarah Palin’s book is “An American Life.”Because she is the lovely avatar of real Americans — ordinary, hard-working, God-fearing, common-sense, good, ordinary, real Americans. If you are not living an American life, you are, to use a Palin coinage, living “bass-ackwards.”(snip) I approached reading her book with trepidation, worried I might learn that I am not a real American, dang it, just another dreaded, jaded “enlightened elite.”

    March 18, 2009 Michelle Obama's toned arms spark a trend Dress designers and Michelle Obama have developed an obsession with toned biceps. Is this a new kind of low-key status symbol, asks our Fashion Editor Lisa Armstrong Who knew that when the faintest dimple on the mountain of Michelle Obama adulation manifested itself, it would be incurred by the First Lady's propensity to display her biceps? It began, as barely perceptible dips in adulation (and concurrent spikes in envy) often do, when she appeared on the March cover of American Vogue.

He told GQ magazine: "I'm gonna eat the placenta. I thought that would be good. Very nutritious. I'm gonna eat the cord and the placenta right there." Cruise has also claimed he knew actress Holmes, 27, was pregnant, even before she told him. A follower of Scientology, he has defended the religion's belief that women should give birth in silence....

The Sioux County Sheriff's Department believes the first incident happened in May of last year, when the boy was still 15 years old. That's where the sexual abuse charges come from, because the boy wasn't old enough to consent.

    Many Straight Guys Say 'No Thanks' to 'Brokeback Mountain' BY DRU SEFTON It's true, the movie "Brokeback Mountain" does provoke what one researcher calls "a very strong ick factor" in some straight men. What is it in this story of two cowboy pals in 1960s Wyoming who find themselves in lifelong love -- yet go on to marry women -- that elicits this response from heterosexual males? The answers are as complex as the plot. A psychologist who coined the word "homophobic" said the revulsion is precisely that. A scientist who discovered genetic links to sexuality said he simply does...

    Gay Men Respond Differently to Pheromones By RANDOLPH E. SCHMID, Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON - Gay men's brains respond differently from those of heterosexual males when exposed to a sexual stimulus, researchers have found. The homosexual men's brains responded more like those of women when the men sniffed a chemical from the male hormone testosterone. "It is one more piece of evidence ... that is showing that sexual orientation is not all learned," said Sandra Witelson, an expert on brain anatomy and sexual orientation at the Michael G.

    The unending 50-year war over Alfred Kinsey and his sex research is about to flare up once again, thanks to the new movie Kinsey. The film manages to be fairly faithful to the biographies of Kinsey while sliding by or simply omitting a lot of negative material that might interfere with a heroic view of the man. Kinsey was a highly intelligent, fearless man and an unusually skilled interviewer whose question-and-answer techniques heavily influenced the way polls and surveys are done today. Conservatives seem quaint when they argue that Kinsey’s two reports, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948) and...

    THE CENTRAL question facing the John Kerry campaign is whether to tilt left or go down the middle this week at the Democratic national convention in Boston. While American political conventions do not make any important decisions — everything is arranged in advance — they amount to a four-day opportunity to showcase the party programme on prime-time television. Even though the broadcast networks constantly cut back on their coverage of the conventions, cable news channels more than pick up the slack. In 2000 half of all American voters watched more than four hours of convention coverage and a quarter, the...

The Massachusetts' patrician choose Edwards in order to infuse some energy into his often uninspiring campaign, by putting a good ol’ boy with a populist message from down South on the ticket. Kerry’s choice won’t help the Democrats win one deep Southern State. However, it may cause the GOP to...

    We can allow Madonna her self-healing quest to "discover her inner light" in the wisdom of the Kaballah, but such a mission seems a little painful when set out in the memoirs of the former leader of the free world. Bill Clinton's descriptions in his forthcoming autobiography, My Life, of his inner "demons", and his teenage terror at his first sexual urges, might have been better left to the "relationship therapy" sessions he attended in 1998 with his wife, Hillary. The ex-president's psychological self-portrait of a man leading "parallel lives" – outward confidence masking inner turmoil and weakness – is...

    As delegates excitedly awaited Bill Clinton in the packed and sweltering hall, word went around that, the night before, he had visited one of the charming little restaurants specialising in Blackpool cuisine (McDonald's). In the eyes of a Labour conference, this would normally make him a symbol of American corporate exploitation of the developing world (Blackpool).But, for some irrational reason, delegates had decided that Mr Clinton was one of their own. The great figures of New Labour stood near the platform waiting to be presented when Mr Clinton entered - like maharajahs awaiting the arrival of the King-Emperor in another...
