Taylor Swift's Twitter & Instagram Hacked

Taylor Swift's Twitter account was hacked on January 27th by two individuals and one claimed that they were going to leak "nude" photos of the singer. One hacker whose Twitter handle was "@veriuser" posted a tweet to Taylor's followers, saying, "Shoutout @veriuser follow him guys' Fav when done for a follow… Love you all!!!"

This same hacker then sent out another tweet that said, "go follow my boy @lizzard :)" The hacker named "lizzard" wrote to Taylor's fans that he and the singer are currently dating. He later tweeted, "Will post taylor swift's nudes when this btc wallet hits 3btc" and included a link to a Bitcoin account.

  • The tweets were deleted from Taylor's page shortly after. She then addressed the hack, "I'd like to acknowledge the MVP of the day, @yelyahwilliams, for being the first to text me about the hack this morning. #FriendshipGoals. PS any hackers saying they have 'nudes'? Psssh you'd love that wouldn't you! Have fun Photoshopping cause you got NOTHING."

Working Long Hours Make You Less Productive

When it comes to work, it's about the quality of the hours you work, not the quantity. A new study reveals that employee output falls sharply after a 50-hour work-week, so much so that a person who works 70 hours produces nothing more than a person who works just 55 hours. Longer hours have also been associated with absenteeism and employee turnover. In a Gallup poll last year, 40 percent of Americans said they work more than 50 hours every week, 20 percent said they worked more than 60. Additionally, a recent Pew survey found that 35 percent of adults say the Internet, email and cellphones have increased the number of hours they work.

Burglar Falls through Ceiling and into Police Custody

A burglar looking to make a quick score at a Family Dollar had quite the fall Sunday morning.

The burglar had climbed on the roof at the store and managed to weasel his way into the ceiling, where he promptly fell in front of a nearby Houston police officer.

Houston police received a call of a potential burglary at the store, and a nearby unit pulled up just in time as the suspect fell through the ceiling. The officer immediately ordered the suspect to stay on the floor, where he was taken into custody.

Police said the man, who was working on his own, managed to climb a tree next to the building and busted a hole in the roof to gain entry. Police believe the suspect was attempting to break in to steal cigarettes.

Melissa Rivers Pushes forward with Wrongful Death Lawsuit


Melissa Rivers has decided to move forward with a lawsuit against Yorkville Endoscopy Center -- the group responsible for the death of her mother, Joan Rivers, back in August. She released a statement on January 26th saying, "What ultimately guided me was my unwavering belief that no family should ever have to go through what my mother, my son Cooper and I have been through. The level of medical mismanagement, incompetency, disrespect, and outrageous behavior is shocking and frankly, almost incomprehensible. Not only did my mother deserve better, every patient deserves better. It is my goal to make sure that this kind of horrific medical treatment never happens to anyone again."

Joan stopped breathing during an operation on her vocal cords. She passed away a week later at the age of 81.

Cinnamon Scents Can Make You Buy Expensive Items


As human beings we are influenced by some weird things, and stores are trying to make sure they employ every method possible to influence you to open your wallet. A new study reveals that warm scents such as cinnamon can prompt us to buy fancier, more expensive products. Study authors explain, writing, "People smelling warm fragrances such a cinnamon feel that the room they are in is more crowded, and feel less powerful as a result. This can lead them to compensate by buying items they feel are more prestigious." So pay attention to your nose next time you're in a store, make sure you're not being manipulated.

Former Hollywood Exec Comes forward as Bill Cosby Assault Victim

Former Hollywood exec Cindra Ladd released a statement on January 26th accusing Bill Cosby of sexually assaulting her back in 1969. She wrote in an essay for Huffington Post, "I met Bill Cosby while working in New York for the late film producer Ray Stark. I was a 21-year-old single woman in the world's most exciting city. He was a 32-year-old internationally known comedian and television star, one of the most likable and popular entertainers in the business. He asked for my number and I gave it to him." Cindra claims that their relationship was platonic at first but things took a turn when Bill offered a pill to help with a headache.

She goes on to write, "I asked a couple of times what it was. Each time he reassured me, asking, 'Don't you trust me?' Of course I did. This was Bill Cosby. What I do recall, vividly and clearly, is waking up the next morning nude in the bed of his friend's apartment and seeing Cosby wearing a white terrycloth bathrobe and acting as if there was nothing unusual. It was obvious to me that he had had sex with me. I was horrified, embarrassed and ashamed." Ladd also explains why she never went to the police by adding, "It never occurred to me to go to the police. It was a different time and 'date rape' was a concept that didn't exist."

Over 20 women have now come forward with similar stories about their encounters with Bill.

Preemies Less Lucky in Love as Adults

Were you a preemie? A new study out of Finland reveals that twenty-somethings who were born prematurely are less likely to move in with a lover or have sex than their peers born at full term. Researchers reviewed questionnaires by people born in Finland between 1985 and 1989. Overall, 149 participants were born preterm (less than 34 weeks gestation) and 248 were born late preterm (between 34 and 37 weeks.) The other 356 participants were born at full term. Compared to individuals who were full-term, those born late preterm were 20 percent less likely to have ever lived with a romantic partner and 24 percent less likely to have ever had sex. Preemies also rated their sexual attractiveness as lower than those born full-term. Study author Dr. Tuija Mannisto says, "Previous studies have found that individuals born preterm might be more cautious and less risk-taking than those born at full term, which might also be reflected in our findings of lower likelihood of romantic relations."

KFC Double Down Dog Combines Hot Dog with Fried Chicken

In a concept seemingly cooked up by a fever dream, fast food fans may be delighted to find that KFC's latest creation combines America's love for both hot dogs and fried chicken. KFC, which describes the new menu item as "outrageously meaty," takes its own spin on the all-American sandwich: replacing the bun of a hot dog with a fried chicken patty, and a ribbon of melted cheese across the top.

According to the KFC Facebook page, only 50 Double Down Dogs are available per store, and only between Jan. 26 to 27. Within a few hours after stores opened Monday, KFC reported that they had already sold out.

American KFC fans may be disappointed to learn that the limited edition item is only available to select stores in the Philippines, with no future plans to bring it to the United States.

Shoveling Increases Heart Attack Risk

If you live in the Northeast you're likely dealing with a lot of snow, but it's important to go easy with the shoveling. The American Heart Association says that strenuous activity can increase your risk of having a heart attack, and that people with coronary artery disease should stay away from shoveling altogether. The cold temperatures may also increase your risk of having a cardiac event as they can cause arteries to tighten and increase blood pressure. Dr. Mac Gillinov with The Cleveland Clinic says, "If you're shoveling snow, and you get pressure in your chest; stop. That could be your heart."

Apps Made More Money than Movies Last Year

Play on your phone much? A new study reveals that apps including games like Angry Birds raked in more cash than the movies ticket sales brought in. Total revenue at the App Store since 2008 is 25 billion and shows no signs of slowing down. It's even to the point that the average app developer who has a medium sized hit app would earn more than an actor would earn for an equally successful movie role. Apple says the most popular app for the iPhone last year was the game Minecraft, which allows users to build their own world from the ground up.

Disneyland Measles Outbreak Blamed on Anti-Vaxxer Crowd

A major measles outbreak traced to Disneyland has brought criticism down on the small but vocal movement among parents to opt out of vaccinations for their kids.

In a rash of cases that public health officials are rushing to contain, at least 70 people in six states and Mexico have fallen ill since mid-December, most of them from California. The vast majority of those who got sick had not gotten the measles-mumps-rubella, or MMR, vaccine.

Measles has been all but eradicated in the U.S. since 2000 because of vaccinations, but the virus has made a comeback in recent years, in part because of people obtaining personal belief exemptions from rules that say children must get their shots to enroll in school. As cases mount, several newspapers have criticized the anti-vaccine movement.

How Much do Super Bowl Ads Cost?

Super Bowl XLIX commercials promise to deliver high-stakes thrills
This year's commercials will be bigger — and more expensive — than ever. Companies like Budweiser, Pepsi, Victoria's Secret and Carl Jr.'s are all betting millions that their ads will be a success.

Multimillion-dollar deals. Cutthroat competition. A few high profile fumbles.

And that’s just the ads.

Super Bowl XLIX is Sunday, Feb. 1 — but the real contest happens off the field in plays that last 30 or 60 seconds. This year’s commercials will be more expensive, more relevant and, if you can believe it, even more scantily clad. This year’s commercial time costs $4.5 million for just 30 seconds — but with an estimated audience of half the country, a Super Bowl ad provides plenty of bang for the buck.

Rihanna & Leonardo DiCaprio Fling Going on for Years

One of Hollywood's latest buzzed-about hookups may not be as new as we all were led to believe. According to Us Weekly, Leonardo DiCaprio and Rihanna have been flirty for years.

Sources say that the actor has had a thing for RiRi dating back to 2009 when they were both at L.A.'s club Villa and he allegedly stared at her for an hour. He even supposedly asked the DJ to move his equipment out of the way because it was obstructing his view of her. Their flirtation started up again when they both attended Coachella in 2011. An insider revealed, "They've rocked in the same room a lot. Leo's had her to his house for get-togethers."

  • Their recent time together in St. Barth's for New Year's prompted reports that their flirtation turned into a fling.
  • A source recently told Star, "Their chemistry is off the charts. Rihanna loves Leo's attitude about life, and he thinks her laid-back demeanor is irresistibly sexy. She says he's the best she ever had."

There's Now Tinder for Elitists

There’s a Tinder for dogs, a Tinder for Jews, and now… a Tinder for elitists.

Or, as The League creator Amanda Bradford prefers to describe the dating app that only allows a selective cohort of singles to join, “"curated."” “"The best universities curate students,"” Bradford said to Business Insider, "“Employers curate their employees. Work and school are the top places where 20-somethings meet each other. So it makes sense for a dating community [as well.]"”

The League is all about selectivity. Singles apply to join, and then wait for approval by administrators. While apps like Tinder, Hinge and Coffee Meets Bagel pulls user data from Facebook, The League also goes to LinkedIn to curate its community largely made up of lawyers, doctors and tech execs.

The acceptance algorithm that The League uses scans the social networks to ensure applicants are in the right age group and that they are career-oriented. That doesn’t mean they have to be Ivy graduates or work for a big-name firm. But they should have accomplished something in their 20s.

Jamie Dornan has seen how to deal with sudden fame by watching his friend/drinking buddy Rob Pattinson. The Fifty Shades of Grey actor discusses his friendship with the Twilight star and how his situation won't be the same as what Rob went through.

Jamie said, "I've been round Rob long enough to see what it's been like for him. I don't know if it's been a benefit to witness that. Whatever that is." He added, "By the way, it's not the same thing. We're not the Twilight franchise. We're a different thing. Whatever my situation is, it's going to be different from Rob's. They are incomparable."

The 32-year-old also said, "I'm astonished at how many people are telling me my life is going to change. Everyone that I meet, especially in L.A. People who run studios or other actors or people who are strangers. Everyone has been saying that to me, 'Are you ready?' I don't have a good answer to that, because I don't know what I'm meant to be ready for. Whatever happens, happens. I'll just roll with the punches."

Why It's Better for Women to Make the First Move

A website called Elite Daily has compiled a list of reasons women should make the first move. Here are some their reasons why it’s a good idea:

  1. Guys like to be reminded that girls think of them just as much as girls like to know a guy is doodling their names all over his notebook.
  2. Girls love to talk. Therefore, girls generally know how to keep a conversation going longer.
  3. Guys are oblivious. They either think no girl is into them, or every girl is into them.
  4. Taylor Swift isn’t dominating the music industry because guys were able to make good moves.
  5. Being forward shows confidence, and confidence in a girl can spark confidence in a guy.
  6. Girls have a better grip on the difference between confidence and cockiness.

--Ladies, do you agree with this? Why or why not?

--Do you have any of your own reasons you might like to add?

--Do you occasionally make the first move? And if not, why not? And if so, how has it generally worked out for you?

Self Serve Beer Taps Coming to a Bar Near You

Your days of waiting in line at a crowded bar may be numbered. Josh Goodman has invented a self-service beer system. It's called PourMyBeer, and Goodman launched it back in 2008. Since then, over 200 bars in 28 states and Canada have adopted the beer self-serve option. Customers buy a radio-frequency identification enabled wristband or card to access the machine. They then tap the access point, select a beer, and start tapping. The machine only dispenses two beers at a time, and the customer pays for exactly what they pour. Would PourMyBeer draw you into a specific bar?

Chilly Feet Increase Your Chances for Cold or Flu

It's time to invest in a nice pair of slippers. A new study reveals that having chilly feet increases one's risk of catching viruses. Study author Dr. Ron Eccles explains that most people carry the germs that cause viruses in their nose already, without it causing symptoms. However once the temperature of their feet drops, it leads the temperature of the rest of the body to drop, including the nose.

This in turn ups the chances of the germs in the nose causing a full-blown cold. Eccles adds, "Chilling the feet causes the blood vessels in the nose to constrict...blood flow to the nose is reduced. The white cells that fight infection are found in the blood, so then there are fewer white cells to fight the virus." The take home message? Keep your nose and feet toasty to reduce your risk of catching a bug.

Anne Hathaway wants to be more like Jessica Chastain when it comes to award season. The Song One star chatted about her Interstellar co-star with Us Weekly earlier this week saying, "In 2013, Jessica Chastain and I were both nominated together. I remember we were both at a luncheon before it started, and I was sitting next to her and I asked her: 'So what's the first thing you're gonna eat Monday?' And she said, 'What do you mean?' I said, 'Monday when we can eat again -- what's the first thing you're going to eat?' And she goes, 'Oh, yeah. I don't do that!'" Anne went on to say, "So, my beauty routine is to be more like Jessica Chastain. She doesn't worry about it. She just shows up, and is who she is, so my New Year's Resolution is to be more like Jessica Chastain."

Man Demolishes Home without Telling Wife

Middletown police are saying a New York man demolished his house without telling his wife about his plans. The man, James Rhein, was found by police using an excavator to take the house, owned by his wife, down. Police say Rhein also didn't remove any household items instead he dumped everything into large construction garbage bins. Authorities also said he did not cancel any utilities such as gas, electric and water services, which were cut by crews only after police alerted them to the situation. Rhein, who was charged with criminal mischief, told cops that he was demolishing the house because it had a bad foundation.

'Invisible Boyfriend' App Helps You Convince Others You're in a Relationship

Single but wish you weren't? There's an app for that. Meet "Invisible Boyfriend" (and "Invisible Girlfriend"), the app designed to send you texts, calls, and even leave voicemails to help you convince everyone around you that you've found love. The apps, founded by St. Louis’s Matthew Homann and Kyle Tabor, launched today." “[Imagine] you''ve got conservative grandparents in the Bible Belt who can't believe you might be gay or lesbian," Mr. Homann told BetaBeat.

BetaBeat reports, "We needed to know: how does the service generate text messages and voicemails that seem real? We should make it clear that users don''t just receive generic, robotic texts; the messages read like they come from a human, and your Invisible partner will actually respond if you text them back." Mr. Homann said the recipe is a “secret sauce,” but hinted that “you can tell in many cases... a real person may be on the other end of the message.”

Men Protesting Feminism Coin Term 'Meninism'

Ever heard of the word "meninism" before? It's a controversial movement that opposes feminism, and now some men have started wearing "meninist" T-shirts. Teespring.com sells the shirts and describes it by saying, "Support the movement by getting yourself the official Meninist shirt. #YesAllMen." Men who've purchased the shirt have posted photos of themselves wearing it on social media, and parody shirts have also surfaced.

Facebook Cracks down on Fake News Stories

Most people know they shouldn't believe everything they read on Facebook, but now the social network is trying to become a more trusted source of information. Facebook announced in a blogpost yesterday (January 20th) that it is making an effort to decrease the number of hoaxes and misleading stories posted in users' News Feeds. The blog reads, "People often share these hoaxes and later decide to delete their original posts after they realize they have been tricked. These types of posts tend to receive lots of comments from friends letting people know this is a hoax, and comments containing hoax-busting websites." Users can now report a post as a false news story. Facebook won't be fact-checking the content, but it hopes the change will cut back on the distribution of fake posts.

Punishing a Winner? Coach Suspended after 161-2 Victory

A high school basketball coach in San Bernardino, California, has been suspended for allowing his team to cruise to a 161-2 thumping over a competitor in a victory that prompted a debate about good sportsmanship. Arroyo Valley High School Coach Michael Anderson was blacklisted for allowing his girls team to crush the Bloomington High team during their Jan. 5 meet. “I didn’t expect [Bloomington] to be that bad, I’m not trying to embarrass anybody. And I didn’t expect my bench to play that well,” Anderson told the San Bernardino Sun “The game got away from me.”

His team has won four previous games by more than 70 points. Bloomington coach Dale Chung told the newspaper that Anderson had played an aggressive full-court press for the game’s first half, allowing the Arroyo team to lead 104-1 at half time. “We only got the ball past half court maybe four or five times in the first half,” Chung said. “People shouldn’t feel sorry for my team. They should feel sorry for [Anderson’s] team, which isn’t learning the game the right way.”

LATEST VIRAL PRANK: Put 'Em in a Coffin Damages Expensive BMW

The latest prank that kids are into is a little more destructive than the toilet papering of yesteryear: Called "Put 'em in a coffin" and based on a Vine video from May that's gone viral, it involves throwing yourself back-first onto the tops of cars (and grocery displays, and classroom desks, and one another, etc.). And for at least one Houston man and his wife, the damage is into the thousands. Last Friday, James McHugh, 28, found both his BMW and his wife's car seriously dented across the hoods, and a home security camera caught grainy footage of seven young men approaching his property. He says it'll cost about $4,000 for repairs.

"You work hard, and then to have that much money washed away for 10 seconds of laughter—it's very frustrating," McHugh says. People have been posting videos on YouTube, Vine, and other social media sites since rapper VonMar of the group ThotBoyz posted the original back in May. Since then, his video has been viewed more than 3 million times on Vine. As for McHugh, there's no word yet on whether his own security footage will help identify the vandals.

Hollywood Success Hasn't Made Chris Hemsworth Happy

Chris Hemsworth admits in the new issue of GQ Australia that his successful film career hasn't made him as happy as he thought it would. He tells the magazine, "You get to Hollywood, you achieve something and then you realize, 'S**t, it didn't actually bring me the happiness I thought it was going to. It didn't fix anything. Look, I mean I don't wake up, look in the mirror and go, 'Yep, all is perfect.'"

Chris also explains how differently he was treated after his career took of saying, "It's bull****. I remember how differently people treated me when things went well. Some directors and producers who never gave a [damn] at best, they'd have given me a sideways glance. Next time I saw them, they're my best friend. That's gross."

Billy Crystal Clears up Sex on TV Comments

Billy Crystal wants to clarify that his recent comments made while promoting The Comedians at TCA regarding sex on TV were not specifically about the gay community. He told The Hollywood Reporter, "What I meant was that whenever sex or graphic nudity of any kind, gay or straight, is gratuitous to the plot or story it becomes a little too much for my taste."

Billy was originally asked his thoughts on what has happened on TV since playing one of the first openly gay characters on Soap to which he responded, "I've seen some stuff recently on TV in different kinds of shows where the language or the explicit sex is really, you know, sometimes I get it, and sometimes I just feel like, 'Ah, that's too much for me.'...Sometimes it's just pushed a little too far for my tastes, and I'm not going to get into which ones they are."

Study: Kids Need to Eat Less Pizza

People love pizza, especially kids. However a new study reveals that pizza is a large source of calories, saturated fat and salt in kids' diets. Researchers looked at questionnaires about the diets of kids and teens ages two to 19 over seven years. They found that the number of calories consumed from pizza decreased 25 percent between 2003 and 2010, but that the food remains a common part of children's diets. On any given day about 20 percent of kids and teens nom down on pizza. Study co-author Lisa Powel says, "Parents should aim to curb pizza consumption, particularly as a snack where it was shown to have the largest adverse impact on children's calorie intake, and they should put their pizza dollars toward healthier brands."

Can Your Friends Accurately Predict When You'll Die?

Would you say your best friend knows you better than anybody else? A new study confirms they just might. The friends of study participants were polled about participant's personality traits. It was revealed subjects whose friends viewed them as more conscientious and open tended to have longer lives—men seen as most conscientious had a 30 percent lower mortality risk than average. Similarly, women who were considered emotionally stable and agreeable had a 15 percent lower risk. So why can't we just predict when we'll die ourselves? Our friends' beliefs about our traits are, when averaged, more reliable than our own.

5-Year-Old Billed for Missing Birthday Party

Englishman Derek Nash got a shock when he found a bill demanding a "no show fee" for another child's birthday party in his 5-year-old son's school bag. Nash said the bill, from another parent, was for 15.95 pounds (about $24.00) because his son Alex had misesd the party at a ski center in Plymouth.

Nash told the BBC that he accepted the invitation but then realized his son was supposed to see his grandparents that day and didn't have the contact info to let the family know Alex couldn't attend. Julie Lawrence, the birthday boy's mother, told the BBC her contact details were on the invitation to the party. Nash claims Lawrence threatened him with small claims court but so far he has no plans to pay.

Mistakes Men Make on the First Three Dates

Mistake #1: You spend way too much time talking about yourself
While the point of dating is to get to know one other, relationship expert Vanessa Marin says too many guys can spend an entire happy hour going into detail about themselves without taking a second to inquire about their date. “No girl wants to be on a date with someone who isn’t curious about them or wasn’t considerate enough to ask anything about their life,” she says.

Mistake #2: You don’t come across as human
Dating and sex expert Laurel House says guys don’t offer enough information to a girl to make her feel comfortable. Instead, they just give facts. “Women who say they aren’t interested in a guy might blame it on feeling no connection because he came across cold instead of expressing his feelings,” she says. “You want to tell your stories in detail, so she can feel like she’s experiencing it with you.”

Mistake #3: You give the wrong kind of compliments
Okay, okay - yes, her butt looks awesome in that dress (and you probably snuck a look or two while she was walking in front of you), but there is never a reason to say that on one of the first three dates. “I went on a date once where a guy told me my breasts looked great,” Marin says. “It was inappropriate and an immediate turn-off. Leave that kind of talk for after we sleep together.”

Mistake #4: You get too handsy too soon
You might feel like there’s really amazing chemistry on the first date and you’d probably like to see her naked, but if you’re interested in a second date, experts say you should shy away from being too forward too fast. It’s this mistake that makes her private practice boom. Many women complain that men initiate sexual contact on the first date, which can leave them feeling like an object.

Women Under Represented in Jobs Where Natural Talent Is Valued

We already know for a fact that women get paid less than men, but a new study reveals they are also under-represented in fields in which natural talent is valued over hard work. Researchers looked at almost 2,000 academics in the U.S. to find this. Study author Sarah-Jane Leslie says, 'Women who are presented as intellectually accomplished tend like Hermione Granger to also be portrayed as incredibly hardworking and diligent. Their accomplishments are seen as grounded in hours of poring over books, rather than in some kind of raw brilliance." One reason this may happen: society stereotypes men as being the gifted sex. Areas where more brilliant women should apply include math, physics, computing and philosophy.

You Can Be Tricked into Thinking You Committed a Crime

How would you rate your memory? A new study finds that even if you have a good memory, you can be tricked into thinking you've committed a crime in the past. Psychologists found that with just three hours of interviews they could trick participants into believing they'd perpetrated a theft, an assault, or even attacked someone with a weapon when they were a teenager.

Using memory-retrieval techniques they were able to trick some 70 percent of participants, and the effect was so pronounced that participants even provided detailed descriptions of things that never actually happened. Lead researcher Julia Shaw says, "Our findings show that false memories of committing crime with police contact can be surprisingly easy to generate, and can have all the same kinds of complex details as real memories." The findings have clear implications for criminal interrogations and other aspects of legal procedure.

Are You Stuck in 'The Friend Zone?'

An article on Time.com takes a look at people who want more than a platonic relationship but for whatever reason, wind up stuck in the dreaded “Friend Zone.” The blogger/author, CeCe Olisa, claims she herself was responsible for getting caught in the zone. She apparently had trouble getting PAST friendship and into romance and it cost her a shot at several non-platonic relationships.

Question Time!
--Has this happened to you? How did it happen? Were you partly responsible, like the woman who wrote this blog?

--This is the personal experience of a woman, but do you think getting stuck in the friend zone is something that happens more often to a guy??

--Are you able to turn friendships into romantic relationships with ease, or do you essentially vie them as different animals? Explain!

Is Google Glass Officially a Flop?

Google is calling ‘time out’ on the first phase of its Glass experiment, but it promises that it will be back with an improved version of the smart eyewear. The company says sales of the $1,500 Google Glass through its Explorer program will end on Monday for a "transition" that will involve moving the project from the Google X experimental division to a stand-alone division, reports TechCrunch.

Google says the new version that will be revealed later this year will be cheaper and have an improved battery life and display—and this time around, it will release a final version instead of providing prototypes to early testers, reports the Wall Street Journal. After initial excitement, the Glass project suffered low sales and bad publicity, with users being dubbed "Glassholes" and the technology getting banned from cinemas

First Dog Café Opens in Los Angeles

Of all the restaurant trends last year, few seemed to get as much press as the fervor surrounding cat-friendly coffee shops. But 2015 is shaping up to be the Year of the Dog.

“The Dog Café” hopes to open in Los Angeles as America’s first dog café. The project is the brainchild of Sarah Wolfgang who has worked at animal shelters in the States and in Korea. A dog café is not much different than its cat counterpart. Customers can come in for a coffee or tea knowing that plenty of furry friends will be around to brighten their spirits.

All of Wolfgang’s dogs will be up for adoption, though you’re not required to grab a new pet with your latte. “The Dog Café’s mission is simple. We want to provide a second chance for shelter dogs that are often overlooked,” she told LA Weekly. “The Dog Café is going to put a spin on the way people adopt by totally reinventing the way we connect with homeless dogs.” A similar café may also open soon in New York City.

Movie Prices too High, Study Finds

Research and consulting firm PwC reported yesterday as part of their “Consumer Intelligence Series” that based on a survey of over 1,000 consumers in October and November, 53% of respondents said high ticket prices over the last five years has been the reason they’ve stayed away from movie theaters. It seems to be the number one reason why there has been a 21% decline in domestic box office revenue since last summer. The second reason was the quality of the films available, and third was food prices that were too high.

Furthermore, theater chains might want to think twice before adding a 3-D element to their screenings. 3-D rated as the last among what drives viewers to see a film. 41% of people said films were not as interesting to them these days and 30% prefer to watch movies on their own schedules, while 29% just prefer to spend time on different recreational activities.

How Not to Be Manterrupted in Meetings

In a new op-ed in the New York Times, author Sheryl Sandberg and professor Adam Grant point out the perils of “speaking while female,” along with a bevy of new research to prove that no, this is not all in our heads.

Their data follows a long line of research showing that when it comes to the workplace, women speak less, are interrupted more, and have their ideas more harshly scrutinized. “We’ve seen it happen again and again,” Sandberg and Grant write. “When a woman speaks in a professional setting, she walks a tightrope. Either she’s barely heard or she’s judged as too aggressive. When a man says virtually the same thing, heads nod in appreciation for his fine idea.” My friends have come up with terminology for it: Manterrupting. Manstanding.

When it comes to women, we’ve been taught that men lead and women nurture. So when women exhibit male traits – you know, decision-making, authority, leadership – we often dislike them, while men who exhibit those same traits are frequently deemed strong, masculine, and competent.

Support Your (Female) Colleagues. Give Credit Where It’s Due. Women: Practice Assertive Body Language.

Mark Wahlberg's Prosecutor Doesn't Want Him Pardoned

The prosecutor in Mark Wahlberg's assault case from 1988 wants to block him from being pardoned. Judith Beals wrote in The Boston Globe, "I see no reason why that history should be erased from the public record through a pardon. I'm glad Mark Wahlberg has turned his life around...But a public pardon is an extraordinary public act, requiring extraordinary circumstances because it essentially eliminates all effects of having ever been convicted. It is reserved to those who demonstrate 'extraordinary contributions to society,' requiring 'extensive service to others performed, in part, as a means of restoring community and making amends.' On this, I am not sold.'

'Even his pardon petition describes his serial pattern of racist violence as a 'single episode' that took place while he was 'under the influence of alcohol and narcotics. Wahlberg's status as a 'role model to troubled youth' would not be helped by a public pardon, as he claims. In fact, a formal public pardon would highlight all too clearly that if you are white and a movie star, a different standard applies. Is that really what Wahlberg wants?" Mark served 45 days in jail for the crime.

Hipsters are Now Dying Their Beads Rainbow Colors

First it was trendy to just grow a beard, then it was trendy to decorate it for the holidays, now it's trendy for hipsters to dye their beards rainbow colors. DailyMail reports the trend first emerged last year, but is only now reaching the hipster Meccas of Booklyn, Portland, and San Francisco. All styles are acceptable so long as the men choose bright colors. Perhaps it just shows how much men really love their beards, a recent eBay Fashion survey of 1,000 men found that 75 percent consider themselves "pro-beard."

States that Tweet the Most about Alcohol

Are you a big drinker? Your tweets might be the thing that gives you away. Researchers looked at people's alcohol related-tweets and determined those living in Delaware, Washington and Massachusetts are the nation's biggest boozers. Overall, Washington D.C. had the most tweets per capita about wine and beer, but they had the second most tweets about liquor. Those in New Jersey were revealed to tweet the most about getting drunk or "crunk," and the South was the only region in the entire country that tweeted more about hard liquor than they did about beer.

Teresa Giudice's Attorney Sets Record Straight

Teresa Giudice's attorney, James Leonard Jr., has released a statement to shoot down all of the stories that have been published in the media about her life behind bars. James said, "The misinformation being published by various media outlets regarding my client and the details of her incarceration are blatantly false. Whoever is buying these bogus stories, you're wasting your money; whoever is reading them, you're reading pure fiction; and whoever is selling them, legal action will be taken. The reality is that Teresa is acclimating well to her current surroundings and she is keeping to herself. She has told me repeatedly that she is doing fine and that she is appreciative of the support she has gotten from her fans. She asks everyone to respect her privacy and that of her family during the coming weeks and months and she looks forward to being reunited with Joe and her girls."

Some news outlets recently reported that Teresa was going through withdrawal due to a prescription pill addiction which is likely to be one of the "bogus" stories that James is trying to clear up.

TRENDING NOW: Marula Oil

Ever heard of marula oil? If you haven't you'll be seeing it everywhere soon. The oil comes from Africa, where it is extracted from the kernels of the native marula tree. It is increasingly being used in moisturizers, cleansers, and hair products as well as popping up on shelves in its pure oil form. Dr. Jenny Kim, clinical dermatology professor at UCLA says African women traditionally use the oil to care for the skin of babies, and that it has 60 percent more antioxidants than other beauty oils such as argan oil or grapeseed oil. It also contains more fatty acids, which makes it particularly hydrating and nourishing.

Dad Sends Son to School with Drugs instead of Lunch

A British dad who mistakenly sent his three-year-old son to daycare with a Tupperware container of drugs and knives worth $18,000 instead of a packed lunch has received a four-year prison sentence.

Lee Webb, 23, of Folkestone in Kent, meant to drop the toddler off at daycare with food, but instead handed him over with a bag containing a lunchbox full of mephedrone and cocaine along with weighing scales, assorted drugs paraphernalia and two knives.

Upon realizing his blunder, Webb returned to retrieve the bag and container, but staff refused to return it and instead telephoned the police. When officers arrived, they noticed he had scrawled the telephone number of a lawyer on his hand.

Only 20% of Republican Women Want Female President

The glass ceiling may not have shattered, but it is a lot less invisible than it used to be. Women make up only 20% of the Senate, 10% of governors, and 5.2% of Fortune 500 Business leaders. But at least Americans have beginning to understand why: sexist doubts about women’s competence are being slowly replaced by acknowledgement of the tough hand dealt to women leaders.

Not everybody feels that situation should change: A new Pew study says only 20% of women who identify as Republican consider it “personally important” to see a female president in their lifetime.

Mostly, however, Americans attribute the gender gap in leadership roles to structural inequalities, and sexist perceptions of female performance are actually relatively uncommon, says the study: 43% said that double standards keep women from achieving top business positions, and 38% said that kept them from political office. Meanwhile, fewer than 10% of people think women aren’t achieving these positions because they’re not tough enough or they make bad managers.

The More Hours You Work, the More You Drink

Think your job drives you to drink? A new study finds that people who work more than 48 hours a week are more likely to drink at dangerous levels than their counterparts who work fewer hours. Data from more than 300 thousand participants was compared, and risky consumption was defined as more than 14 drinks per week for women, and more than 21 drinks per week for men.

The findings show the connection between long work hours and increased alcohol consumption are consistent across socioeconomic groups, as well as the tendency to use alcohol to unwind. Cassandra Okechukwu, who wrote an editorial to accompany the study says, "If people are [engaging in] risky drinking, they don't sleep well, they're not as socially engaged. It's really important for work places to pay attention to the productivity of their workers and work environment."

Ellen Degeneres Responds to Anti-Gay Pastor

Ellen DeGeneres took some time while taping an episode of her talk show to respond to a pastor who wrote an article for Christian Post calling her out for pushing the gay agenda. She said, "I don't usually read anything about myself. But I heard there was an article written about me and I would like to address it right now. It's a pastor who wrote an article for the Christian Post where he accuses Hollywood of having a gay agenda and said that 'Ellen DeGeneres celebrates her lesbianism and quote unquote marriage in between appearances of guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls.'

'First of all, I'm not quote unquote married, I'm married. That's all, that's all, I'm just married." She continued, "Larry, the only way I'm trying to influence people is to be more kind and compassionate with one another. That is the message that I'm sending out. I don't have an agenda. I'm not here to brainwash anyone. But listen to the sound of my voice. Attention youth of the world: I want you to live your lives being exactly who you are. Be true to yourself. The most important thing is to be true to yourself." The episode aired on the 14th.

Smuggler Busted for Taping 94 iPhones to Body

When it comes to smuggling, not all mules are created equal.

Chinese customs officials on Sunday busted a Hong Kong man trying to sneak 94 iPhones into the mainland -- by strapping them on his body.

The man caught the attention of inspectors at the Futian crossing in Shenzhen, a southern Chinese metropolis bordering Hong Kong, when he walked like someone carrying a heavy load despite appearing to travel light, customs officials told CNN on Tuesday.

After finding nothing suspicious in his two plastic shopping bags, officials asked the man to pass through a metal detector -- and the alarm went off.

Photos released by customs authorities show dozens of neatly shrink-wrapped shiny iPhones strapped around the man's chest, abdomen, crotch and thighs with duct tape.

American Men Say This Makes the "Perfect Woman"

Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but a new survey finds the majority of American men prefer a lady with blonde hair, blue eyes, and a graduate degree. The data comes from dating auction website WhatsYourPrice.com, and also finds the majority of men prefer non-smokers and social-drinkers to lushes. Additionally, the site calculated how much each preferred trait would be worth.Social drinking was determined to be worth the least at $49.67, while the graduate degree was worth the most at $59.90. On average, the men were willing to spend $135.07 for a first date with someone with all of the "perfect" traits.

Should You Marry Your Best Friend?

If you're going to tie the knot, you should really do it with your best friend. A new study reveals married couples who said their spouse was their best friend are overall happier than less friendly couples. About half of married or cohabiting couples said their partner was their best friend, and they got almost twice as much "additional life satisfaction" from the relationship than other couples.

The finding was consistent even when controlling for age, gender, income and health, and was even more pronounced for married couples who said they were best friends. Women benefit most from marrying their best friend, but women were also less likely to say their spouse was their B-F-F than men were. This may be because women have lots of close female friendships, while men tend to have fewer. Even better news-- the increase in life satisfaction that happens with marriage often results in increased happiness way past the newlywed phase.

Taking Evil to the Next Level: Glitterbombs

Glitter's shiny and may conjure up images of unicorns and princesses, but a lot of people hate it. It gets everywhere and in everything which is generally pretty irritating. This is where the idea for ShipYourEnemiesGitter.com (http://shipyourenemiesglitter.com/) must have come from. The website is just what it sounds like, you give them ten Australian dollars (which works out to just over eight U.S. bucks), give them an address and just kick up your feet and wait. In a few weeks your enemy receives an envelope in the mail that gives nothing away, but is filled to the brim with glitter and releases a glitter storm when the letter inside is pulled out. It turns out revenge can be pretty shiny.

Facebook Knows You Better than Friends and Family

Researchers at the University of Cambridge and Stanford University studied how Facebook Likes matched up with people’s own answers on personality tests, as well those of close family and friends. With enough Likes of objects, brands, people, music or books, the computer was better at predicting a person’s personality than most of the people closest to them—with the exception of spouses. (They still know us best, it seems.)

PhD students at the Psychometrics Center at the University of Cambridge had previously investigated how computer models could predict demographic and psychological traits in people. But inspired by the movie Her, they were curious about how the models would do in evaluating personality. They asked 86,220 people on Facebook to complete a 100-question survey that determined where they stood on openness, conscientiousness, agreeableness and neuroticism. They then analyzed their Facebook Likes to generate a model in which Likes were linked to the traits.

On average, people on Facebook had 227 Likes, and this was enough information for the computer to be a better predictor of personality than an average human judge (in other words, a friend), and almost as good as a spouse.

How Often Do We Really Need to Shower

rine Ashenburg, author of The Dirt on Clean: An Unsanitized History explains the ads equated body soap with beauty, and Americans fell for it. However, Hirsch points out that showering too often can dry out and irritate the skin, wash away the good bacteria on your skin, and make small cracks, leaving you at higher risk for infection. Really, we should be taking a shower every two to three days, but it also depends on your activity level and climate. However, this doesn't mean you should skip changing your under garments daily-- one study found we shed way more dirt and oil in our clothing than we do in the shower.

Music Can Make or Break Your First Date

When prepping for a first date, be sure to create a playlist. A new study reveals couples who chatted for the first time with music playing in the background were more likely to hit it off than couples who chatted in a quiet place. Study co-author, Dr. Aoyama Gakuin says listening to music activates that brain's limbic system, which is where emotions are generated. This helps you form a faster connection with your date. Music also helped participants feel more happy and social. The effect may be even greater if the person you're trying to impress likes the specific music playing-- time to do some digging.

Does All Country Music Sound the Same?

At the end of 2013, music writer named Grady Smith asked country music aficionados to "stop settling for this derivative junk" when it comes to country music, stating that "much of what's on the radio these days sounds exactly the same." He came to his conclusion while compiling his "10 Best Country Albums of 2013" list for Entertainment Weekly. He later compiled a mashup that showed there were only a few apparent criteria one needs to put together a country chart-topper: "Truck—check. Dirt road—check. Sugar shaker in painted-on jeans—check." And not much has changed since then.

Strange Study Claims Circumcision Causes AD/HD and Autism in Boys

A new crazy claim is sure to get people talking. The study claims that circumcision before the age of five can double a boy's risk of developing autism. Researchers looked at over 340 thousand boys in Denmark and say circumcision also appeared to increase the likelihood of boys developing hyperactivity disorder.

Study leader Professor Morten Frisch says, "Our investigation was prompted by the combination of recent animal findings likening a single painful injury to lifelong deficits in stress response...and a study showing a strong, positive correlation between a country's neonatal male circumcision rate and its prevalence of [Autism] in boys." Many criticize the study, including Professor of psychiatry Jeremy Turk who says, "I have some issues with the premise in that their speculations regarding early pain as a cause of autism are, to say the least, highly speculative."

How Long People Go between Pajama Washes

You may think they don't get dirty because you don't go outside in them, but you'd be wrong. A new survey reveals people don't wash their pajamas nearly often enough. The average man wears his for about two weeks before he washes them, while women will wear the same set for 17 days.

Hygiene expert Sally Bloomfield says, "Pajamas are against your skin. You shed skin cells at a vast rate all the time. They are full of microorganisms. We all have skin and gut organisms that are usually not harmful on our skin and in our gut, but if they get into the wrong place they can cause problems." The top excuse women gave for not switching PJs: they forget how long they've been wearing them. Seventy three percent of men said they don't do the washing, so they just wear whatever's at hand.

Science Says: Materialism Makes You a Jerk

A Psychologist named Tim Kasser of Knox College weighs in on what consumerism does to the human mind. He claims that leading a materialistic life can lead to depression, antisocial behavior, severe guilt, and other negative qualities.

It’s not the act of possessing things that does the damage — rather, prioritizing making money, having possessions, and gaining image and popularity (the three horsemen of the tried-and-true materialist) makes you a nastier human being.

According to Kasser, here are three things that happen when you start caring more about your stuff than other people.

1. You’re more likely to be a bad friend.

2. Materialism sucks up your money and mind-space.

3. You’ll be distracted from what your real needs are.

TRENDING NOW: Face Shaving for Women

What would you do to keep your face wrinkle-free? Some women are now shaving their faces in an effort to do just that. Alexis Wolfer, editor of The Beauty Bean website says, "It's definitely a thing. One reason men are thought to get fewer wrinkles is that they're constantly exfoliating their faces every time they shave, literally shaving away the outermost layer of skin and encouraging your skin to create new layers." The process is called "dermplaning" and can be done by a dermatologist, or at home the old fashioned way. Wolfer notes there are better ways to exfoliate the face, and adds that women shaving their faces is getting more mainstream, but is not quite common practice yet.

Men Who Snap More Selfies May be Psychotic

Snapping selfies is a normal thing to do these days, but watch out if you meet a man who loves to plaster his own face all over the internet. A new study of 800 men reveals guys who flood the internet with selfies are more likely to have narcissistic and psychopathic personality traits than men who shy away from the behavior.

Men who edit those photos by cropping them, or even adding a filter prior to posting also scored high in self-objectification, meaning their appearance is a high priority. Lead researcher Jesse Fox, a professor of communication at Ohio Stat University, notes that psychopathic tendencies were not related to editing photos. So if your significant other posts tons of selfies without editing them, pay attention to see if your guy has a particular lack of empathy or a tendency toward impulsive behavior.

Sun's Activity During Birth May Determine Death

Do you look to the stars for answers? It turns out the sun's activity during your birth can have an impact on your lifespan. The sun's cycle lasts about 11 years. The first three years are called the "solar maximum" and are full of activity like solar flares and solar storms, while the next eight years are calmer and referred to as the "solar minimum." Researchers looked at demographic data of Norwegians born between 1676 and 1878. They found those born during "solar maximum" periods lived lives that were on average 5.2 years shorter than the lifespans of people born during "solar minimum" periods. Ultraviolet radiation is thought to be behind the effect. Solar activity is linked to higher levels of UV radiation, which is known to have an impact on survival and reproduction.

One Second Added to June 30th

Do you wear a watch everyday? It may be a bit off in June. Something referred to as a "leap second" will be added to the world's clock on June 30th, 2015. The International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service is tasked with maintaining global time and made the official ruling on the leap second. But why, you ask? The Earth's rotation is actually slowing down, and our clocks have had an extra second added in 25 times since the practice first began in 1972. Nick Stamakos, the chief of Earth Orientation Parameters at the U.S. Naval Observatory says, "They add an extra second...in order to make sure the rate of UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) is the same as atomic time."

Science Developes Meal in a Pill

If successful trials done on obese mice translate to humans, a pill for obesity could be more than just a passing fad. So write researchers in the journal Nature Medicine about the compound Fexaramine, which has stopped weight gain, controlled blood sugar, lowered cholesterol, and minimized inflammation in mice, reports the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. "This pill is like an imaginary meal," says Ronald Evans, senior author and director of Salk's Gene Expression Laboratory. "It sends out the same signals that normally happen when you eat a lot of food, so the body starts clearing out space to store it. But there are no calories."

Unlike most appetite suppressants and caffeine-based diet drugs, the researchers say Fexaramine remains in the intestines without dissolving into the blood, thereby causing fewer side effects and setting off a more natural cascade of events that better curtails weight gain.

Strange Things that Lead to a Happy Marriage... According to SCIENCE

Having A Big Wedding
National Marriage Project conducted a survey involving couples to find correlations between happy marriages and the couple's past. One thing that came up was the type of weddings they held -- indicating a connection between formal weddings and happiness. But before you go all bridezilla and hire Coldplay as your wedding band, "bigger weddings" in this study were determined just by the number of guests — not by how extravagant they were.

Having High Bone Mineral Density
A correlation between better bone health and marriage quality has been found. Guys who never said, "I do," were separated, divorced, or widowed had significantly lower bone mass density. The researchers only found a correlation between these two factors — so we don't know what caused this. Until we do, you may want to include milk on date nights.

Having An Attractive Wife
Should we be surprised? Studies led by psychologist Andrea Meltzer followed 450 newlywed couples over four years. He then asked them whether an attractive spouse leads to satisfaction in marriage. Men said yes, but the ladies said no. That's kind of depressing …

Having An UNattractive Husband
Research finds that ladies are better off marrying down. Researchers believe it's because the more unattractive husband would treat the more attractive wife better since men value beauty highly. This might be even more depressing…

Doing Hobbies Separately
you get married you might feel the need to do everything together, but if one person in the relationship actually doesn't appreciate the hobby then it's better to go solo. According to a recent study, couples who separate to do hobbies have greater marriage satisfaction.

Man Breaks into Homes to Drink Booze and Use Hot Tub

An Oregon man, who broke into two homes, apparently just wanted to get naked and relax.

According to local news, police received a 911 call from a woman who was housesitting. She reported being awakened by noises in the laundry room of the home she was staying in.

The woman said she went to investigate and the door of the laundry room suddenly slammed shut. She then grabbed a knife, called 911 and her husband, and waited for police to arrive. When officers arrived at the house, they searched it and found a naked man inside. The man cooperated and told cops he had entered the house through a window in the laundry room by pulling off the screen and forcing the window open.

Police also found another home with missing screens, and determined Lopez had broken in. Nothing was stolen, but the naked man had helped himself to the homeowners’ shower, booze, and hot tub during his unauthorized “visit.”

Veronica Vigil of New Mexico is suing a novelty products company over a flask that she alleges includes her high school graduation photo from 1970 and the phrase, "I'm going to be the most popular girl in rehab" without her permission. The lawsuit states that the Brooklyn, New York based company defamed Vigil by linking her image to a product that makes light of substance abuse.

2015: Year of the Standing Desk

You may not want to read this sitting down. Some 50-70% of Americans spend six or more hours parked in a chair every day, according to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys, and all of that down time is leading to an increase in diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity and even early death, scientists say. "Researchers have said that sitting is the new smoking," Jessica Matthews, exercise physiologist at Miramar College in San Diego tells Reuters.

Advocates of workplace wellness are hoping that 2015 will be the year of the standup desk, eventually leading to a reconfiguration of the classic cubicle (and our bodies). To reduce your risk of "sitting disease" without redesigning your office, "schedule" a time to stand for 30 minutes a day, while on a conference call for example, experts urge. If standing and working becomes your thing this year, you'll be in good company: Virginia Woolf and Leonardo da Vinci were also fans of the standing desk.

Men Have It Easier Losing Weight and Keeping It off

Do you have a new year’s resolution to lose weight? You might not want to do it with your other half. A new study of 1,850 adults reveals that men lose weight faster and find it easier to keep off than women do. The most common method men chose to lose weight was old fashioned diet and exercise. Women were more likely to give up booze, and were more likely to consume more veggies and fruits than men were.  

Despite being worse at losing weight, women did excel in one area over men—they tend to set more realistic weight-loss targets. Unfortunately, they often lack the willpower to stick to their planned diet schedule, an area where men excel.

Russell Crowe to Female Actors: Act Your Age!

Russell Crowe doesn't believe there is much validity to complaints by actresses that there aren't enough roles for older women. He said women who are 40 to 60 should stop seeking the roles of the 21 year old ingénue and act their age. He added that he can't be Gladiator forever, either.

App Lets You Untext Someone

Putting your thoughts down in black and white always comes with risk, but a new app aims to make texting less risky. It's called Strings and lets the user remotely remove messages "immediately and permanently" from other people's phones. The only catch is that all the messaging must be done through the app on everybody's phones.

An upside? The app makes it impossible for anyone to download or save messages sent through it. Strings also allows the user to see when a message has, or has not, been read. A creator of the app says, "With the privacy issues plaguing existing with messaging apps, email, and texting, it's time we had a messaging app that gives us complete control of our conversations."

Smart Belt Automatically Adjusts to Your Wasitline

It's the belt we've all been waiting for -- one that will automatically adjust to your waistline after you've eaten a big meal so you don't have to unbuckle it so you can breathe easier. The smart belt, called the Belty, adjusts itself throughout the day, depending on how much you've eaten and how much exercise you've done. It also keeps track of your health and reminds you when you've been sitting for too long via an app that charts the information it collects during the day and gives you feedback and suggestions. French startup company Emiota unveiled the Belty on January 4th at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

2015 Going to be Bad Year for the Flu

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said on ABC's This Week yesterday (January 4th) that it's going to be a rough flu season in the U.S., saying, "If you look at the trajectory, it's not going to be a good year. It's going to be a bad year. How bad it's going to be will depend on how it actually evolves." High flu activity has been reported in 22 states, and it's already officially been declared an epidemic in the U.S.

This year's flu vaccine is only 33 percent effective because of how the virus mutated after the vaccine was already manufactured, but Fauci said people should still get it, since it could prevent people who do get the flu from getting as sick as they might without it. Children, people over age 65, and those with weak immune systems are especially vulnerable to the flu.

'Phallic' Play-Doh Toy Recalled

"Oh no, Play-Doh" has been the horrified reaction of some parents whose kids unwrapped their Hasbro Sweet Shoppe Cake Mountain playset over the holidays. The reaction of practically everyone else: hysterical, juvenile laughter at the set's icing maker (or, as Hasbro calls it, the "2-piece extruder"), which bears an uncanny resemblance to a penis.

It's not exactly an apology, but a post on Hasbro's Facebook page yesterday admits that the company has "heard some consumer feedback about the extruder tool … [and is] in the process of updating all future Play-Doh products with a different tool." It's also offering a replacement extruder to anyone who calls the Hasbro customer-service number.

NY Couple Arrested for Complaining to Neighbor too Much

Paul Sohacki and Katherine Gannon of Cooperstown, New York, live in 12 acres and claim their neighbor, Gene Ellis, who lives on more than 50 acres attempted to steal their land because Ellis' driveway crossed a sliver of their land. Sohacki claims, "He was redefining the border closer and closer to our house. We had to get the land surveyed and see who owned what." The couple sued Ellis and the case was settled. Ellis agreed to move his driveway off their property.

The couple began filming Ellis, to document what they say was trespassing and menacing behavior, everywhere. They took the footage to the County District Attorney asking him to take action against Ellis. But they didn't realize that, as the DA stated, "it showed them actually committing a crime against him. All of these videos were the best evidence against themselves. They were eventually arrested when we actually had some independent evidence of a witness, who was able to confirm that the Sohackis were following Mr. Ellis around and taking pictures of him." The charges against them were eventually dropped.

Starbucks Unveils New Drink: The 'Flat White'

A new drink is coming to Starbucks. It's called the "flat white" and will be added to the coffee giant's menu starting January 6th. It's been available for years in the UK and Australia, and is a popular drink among New Zealanders. Different countries define the flat white differently, but here is how Reuters executive Jason Fox describes the drink, "It's like a cappuccino, except that instead of the a top layer of flavorless, airy, milky foam, it's a velvety, dense foam that is mixed evenly through the drink."

TRENDING NOW: "Selfie Sticks"

Ever seen someone using a selfie stick? The retractable pole clamps onto a smartphone, allowing the user to take a better selfie. Nordstrom carried the Selfie On A Stick model in 118 stores starting in late November, and had to reorder them twice before Christmas—they're currently sold out. ProMaster, which supplies camera accessories to 500 U.S. stores, said it had to keep re-ordering selfie sticks after running out of stock.

It's estimated 100,000 selfie sticks were sold in the U.S. in December alone, but the products became popular over the summer and demand intensified around Thanksgiving. What do you think when you see someone using a selfie stick in public?

What Age Men and Women Find Each other Most Attractive

What age group do you go after? After analyzing the profiles of daters on OKCupid and OKTrends, researchers have created graphs indicating how our tastes in partners changes as we age. Study leader Christian Rudder says, "Women who are, say, 28 find guys who are also 28 about the most attractive, and so forth. Up until about 40, when that's getting too old." Not surprisingly, the findings reveal men at all ages find women at age 20 most attractive.

To that, Rudder comments, "From the time you're 22 you'll be less hot than a 20-year-old, based on this data. So that's just a thing. It is kind of terrible."

What women said about men:
