  • 'I literally wanted to die': Woman claims she was bitten by hundreds of bed bugs at Atlantis resort

    A Florida woman filed a lawsuit against the Atlantis Paradise Resort in the Bahamas alleging that she woke up covered with crawling bed bugs. The Miami Herald reported Thursday that Cindi Avila was staying in a room at the Royal Towers during a January 2016 vacation at the resort. At the last night of her stay she said she woke up to “hundreds of painful, swollen bites from her forehead to her thighs.” “It was like something out of a horror movie,” she told the Herald. “I pulled up the mattress and I was shocked at what I saw.” Avila said she took pictures and video of the bites and the dozens of tiny insects crawling on the bed skirt. The paper reported that tiny black excrement can also be

  • You won’t believe how much Amazon is charging for Google’s Pixel XL

    The Pixel phone series seems like a big success for Google, which still can’t seem to make enough of them to go around. Both the Pixel and Pixel XL are sold out in the Google Store, though Verizon has them — and the carrier has been selling plenty of them, according to recent estimates . Amazon has the Pixels in stock too, but the online retail giant is selling the phone at quite a markup. The 128GB Pixel XL, sold and shipped by Amazon, can cost you more than $1,500 ... and that doesn't even include sales tax. Apparently, that’s not a mistake — or if is an error from Amazon, it hasn’t been fixed yet. Other retailers are also selling the phone for quite a markup, with prices ranging from $1,387 to $1,799.99. But these are third-party retailers looking to make a quick buck. But it’s pretty strange to see Amazon’s official Pixel XL page listing a $1,500 price. The same Google Pixel XL version costs $869 plus tax if you can find it at Google or Verizon. If you still haven’t purchased a Google Pixel or Pixel XL, you’d be better off waiting at this point. The phone might be the hottest Android smartphone in town right now, but not for long. All the other major Android device makers out there are preparing to launch hot new smartphones this year, with Samsung and LG leading the pack. The Galaxy S8 and LG G6 are due in mid-April and early March, respectively, according to recent reports. By then, Pixel prices might drop and stock at Google will likely improve. Not to mention that Amazon might drop the price back to what Google is charging for the phone.

  • The Clinton Foundation Is Dead — But The Case Against Hillary Isn't

    While everyone's been gearing up for President Trump's inauguration, the Clinton Foundation made a major announcement this week that went by with almost no notice: For all intents and purposes, it's closing its doors. In a tax filing, the Clinton Global Initiative said it's firing 22 staffers and closing its offices, a result of the gusher of foreign money that kept the foundation afloat suddenly drying up after Hillary Clinton failed to win the presidency. It proves what we've said all along: The Clinton Foundation was little more than an influence-peddling scheme to enrich the Clintons, and had little if anything to do with "charity," either overseas or in the U.S. That sound you heard starting in November was checkbooks being snapped shut in offices around the world by people who had hoped their donations would buy access to the next president of the United States. There was a strong precedent for it in Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state.

  • Dear Abby: 3 ways to be a happier wife

    DEAR ABBY: Many of your published letters come from unhappy married women. Some of them seem unable to get objective advice that would make themselves and their marriages happier. I’m fortunate to be happily married (33 years) to a wonderful woman who has a clear perspective. Three pearls of wisdom she could share: 1. Don’t sulk because your husband can’t read your mind. Trust him; he’d like to help. And listen to your tone as you point out how he can. 2. The way you talk about him to your friends is an expression of your fidelity. Talk about him honestly, but with respect. If you do, he’ll admire and encourage your close friendships and take a sincere interest in your friends as people. If your

  • 'Morbidly obese' woman drops 126 pounds and becomes fitness model

    A woman from Aarhus, Denmark, who was once classified as “morbidly obese” after tipping the scales at 268 pounds, now works as a physical trainer and sportswear model after dropping more than half of the weight in a period of four years. Mathilde Broberg, 22, lost the excess pounds partially by cutting out junk food, exercising avidly and following the “teaspoon diet,” where she measured out her food and ate with a teaspoon to ensure that the portion sizes weren’t larger than the size of a flat-out hand.

  • Justin Bieber's Lost Blue Ferrari is Up for Auction

    Last year, Justin Bieber famously lost his neon blue Ferrari after a night out in Los Angeles. He had left the customized Ferrari 458 Italia, which was reportedly worth over $240,000, with the parking valets at the Montage hotel in Beverly Hills, but after a long night out he couldn't recall where he had parked it. It took his assistant three weeks to finally track the car down. Misplacing his Ferrari was actually a minor issue compared to the many troubles that the singer has encountered while driving. Bieber was arrested in January 2014 in Miami for speeding and then resisting arrest. He eventually pled guilty to the charges in order to avoid a conviction for driving under the influence. Over
