    This is my personal assessment of this movie. Run, don't walk, to see this hilarious romantic comedy in your nearest theatre. I haven't laughed so hard in a movie theatre in years. My husband enjoyed it as much as I did. I need to see it again, since many of the jokes are culturally based, but there was enough there to keep just about anybody entertained. It received a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Many of the reviewers seemed to have Asian names, so it doesn't look like they were offended at the humor. The audience where I viewed it...

    CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Some North Carolina elementary school teachers were initially told they would lose their jobs if they didn't pass a Math test they call difficult and unfair. Teachers say they recently got a call from their school district informing them they have another year to pass the test. Hundreds of teachers have failed the test repeatedly. Teachers argue what's on the test has nothing to do with what they teach in a classroom for students in Kindergarten to 5th grade. "Never in a million years would we even come close to teaching some of the topics on...
  • 5 Things to Know About the New Tick Species in the US

    A tick species that's native to Asia has now spread to the United States, and it's popping up in numerous places along the East Coast, according to U.S. officials. Females can reproduce asexually and lay thousands of eggs. Female longhorned ticks don't need a male to reproduce. They can spawn asexually using a process known as parthenogenesis. After feeding, a single female can lay around 2,000 eggs, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Health. That's enough to establish a tick population in a new location, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) says. They suck so much blood, it can cause...

    Kimberly Guilfoyle had been at the center of a human resources investigation at Fox News for a year prior to her departure from the network according to Huff Post,in a bombshell expose. The claims in the report come from interviews conducted over the course of the past year with 21 sources inside and outside Fox News and 21st Century Fox, all of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity. Among the more shocking claims from these sources are that Guilfoyle viciously attacked female hosts at the network including Judge Jeanine Pirro and the since-departed Megyn Kelly, made company employees cater...

    Kimchi, a well-known traditional fermented Korean food, is highly effective in preventing influenza virus in winter, according to the results of cell·animal experiments. A joint research team from the Korea Food Research Institute and the World Institute of Kimchi recently announced that lactic acid bacteria and fermentation metabolites in kimchi inhibit the growth of influenza virus -- proving kimchi's effectiveness against flu for the first time in the world, along with the genetic information of strains(metagenome), fermentation metabolites, and bioactive mechanism. Flu viruses are pathogens that cause acute respiratory conditions in winter. Swine flu (influenza A), which struck the world...

    Freepers are the best and know everything! I need some prescription meds that my insurance co. will not pay for. My doctor suggested getting from Mexico or Canada! I searched and found too many Canada Pharmacies on the net, great prices. But I don't know whether to trust any of them. I hate to risk $100+ to find out. Would appreciate any tips if you have ordered RX from Canada.

    You'll no longer be able to post written reviews as of July 30, and then in mid-August existing written reviews will be removed. Soon, it'll be a little harder for you to tell everyone what you thought of Marvel's The Avengers. Netflix is removing a desktop-only feature this summer that allowed users to read and write reviews of TV shows and movies on its website. But the shutdown is coming in stages. People will no longer be able to write their feedback on a show, similar to a Yelp review of a restaurant, by July 30. And in mid-August, people...

    SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Some immigrant U.S. Army reservists and recruits who enlisted in the military with a promised path to citizenship are being abruptly discharged, the Associated Press has learned. The AP was unable to quantify how many men and women who enlisted through the special recruitment program have been booted from the Army, but immigration attorneys say they know of more than 40 who have been discharged or whose status has become questionable, jeopardizing their futures. “It was my dream to serve in the military,” said reservist Lucas Calixto, a Brazilian immigrant who filed a lawsuit against the...

    Crissy Brownstein Naticchia told The Mighty that her husband of 23 years was diagnosed with Babesia, a tick-born illness that quickly attacks the red blood cells. His diagnosis came after the 50-year-old had come down with an intense fever that eventually landed him in the Intensive Care Unit. However, because it took six days for her husband to get the correct diagnosis, he never recovered. Naticchia's husband unexpectedly passed away the day after his diagnosis. According to Fox 2, scientists have recently discovered an exotic tick species in the United States, specifically in Hunterdon County, New Jersey. It is not...

    This is what the N.Koreans now see of the world they have not seen before. Of course this was to depict their leader in a favorable light for this historic summit. as do we our President. But in my opinion we had a lot to do with putting this together, music and other evidences so. They simply agreed to it. It's a worthy watch if you imagine yourself as a N.Korean. It really is a stunning video. (I tune down the narriator for obvious reasons)

But the camp this group found on Tuesday night, May 29 near I-19 and Valencia was suspicious. In their eyes, it didn’t look like a typical homeless camp. The group found several suspicious and disturbing things, like trees that had restraints on them, a crib, a stroller, in addition to hair dye, an outdoor bathroom and pornographic material. On Thursday afternoon, May 31 Tucson News Now toured...

    Full title: HUGE!! IG Has NO POWER TO SUBPOENA Former Obama Employees — That’s Why Rosenstein Asked Him to Investigate Spying on Trump On Sunday evening, Justice Department Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein asked Inspector General Horowitz to investigate whether there was “impropriety or political motivation” into the FBI’s infiltration of Trump’s campaign. This came just hours after President Trump demanded a review of whether Obama’s Deep State FBI did indeed spy on his campaign. I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the...

    Europe could end up rueing a potential new deal between China and the United States after the two sides stepped back from a trade war, France’s Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire warned on Sunday. “The United States and China risk entering an agreement at the expense of Europe if Europe is not capable of showing a firm hand,” Le Maire told CNEWS television. “The United States wants to make Europe and European countries pay for China’s bad behavior. All of that is totally absurd and incomprehensible for allies,” he said. His comments came after a joint statement issued in Washington...
