    • Admiral gets standing ovation for Colin Kaepernick remark at Pearl Harbor ceremony

      Say this about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick: His national-anthem protest drew a lot of attention, from all corners. At a ceremony in Hawaii on Wednesday to mark the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, U.S. Pacific Command Commander Adm. Harry Harris made a remark that was clearly about the quarterback. “You can bet that the men and women we honor today – and those who died that fateful morning 75 years ago – never took a knee and never failed to stand whenever they heard our national anthem being played,” Harris said, according to the Associated Press.

    • Scientists discover dinosaur trapped in amber in unprecedented find

      'Once in a lifetime find' The findings, which shed fresh light on how dinosaurs looked, are published in the December issue of Current Biology. Ryan McKellar, a paleontologist at the Royal Saskatchwan Museum in Canada and co-author of the paper, says he was blown away when Xing first showed him the piece of amber. "It's a once in a lifetime find. The finest details are visible and in three dimensions." Fragments of dinosaur-era bird wings have been found preserved in amber before but this is the first time part of a mummified dinosaur skeleton has been discovered, McKellar said. The tail section belongs to a young coelurosaurian -- from the same group of dinosaurs as the predatory velociraptors

    • Corbin Bleu's Wedding Vows Were Basically Every Bride's Worst Nightmare

      Sure, he had the moves to wow his guests during his first dance, but newlywed Corbin Bleu's wedding vows definitely were not as smooth as his kick-ball-change. In case you forgot, the High School Musical Star wed his sweetheart, actress Sasha Clements, this past summer on July 23, 2016. "Getting married to Sasha today was the best moment of my life," Bleu previously shared soon after his "I dos." But the day wasn't without its hiccups of course, i.e. the groom's wedding vows which were a little, err, unusual to say the least... Bleu recently stopped by Live with Kelly, where he dished with the host on his overall unforgettable wedding day (video below). But it turns out that it was his vows that

    • Tina Fey Has One Answer For Why Hillary Clinton Lost The Election

      Like many voters and political experts around the country, Tina Fey has been trying to figure out why Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election. Strategists may point to campaign mistakes while others may discuss Clinton’s likability factor, but Fey offered a different point of view entirely. “I promised myself I wouldn’t get up here today and talk about the election, because when I get written up in Breitbart, I want it to be because they’re mad that I’m making an all-female Hitler biopic,” said Fey at the Hollywood Reporter’s annual Women in Entertainment breakfast, in reference to the ultra-conservative website. “But I have to say, I think the real reason that Hillary lost ― and it’s the thing that people are afraid to talk about ― not enough celebrity music videos urging people to vote,” she continued through laughs.

    • Japan's sex problem is so bad that people are quitting dating and marrying their friends

      The Japanese sex problem has become so desperate that its young population has given up on dating and is just marrying friends. A government survey found 69% of Japanese men and 59% of Japanese women do not have a romantic partner. One Japanese aggregator website has since been awash with stories of how people have simply married lifelong friends. The country has one of the lowest birth rates in the world, with just 8.4 children being born per 1,000 inhabitants over the past five years. Its population of 127 million people is predicted to decrease to 87 million by 2060. The survey, carried out by the country's National Institute of Population and Social Security Research, also reported that about

    • Fake news gunman incident at Comet Ping Pong pizzeria, in D.C. (9 photos)

      Edgar Maddison Welch, who has admitted to being the gunman who opened fire inside of the Washington, D.C., pizzeria Comet Ping Pong on Sunday, expressed regret in a new interview with the New York Times . "I just wanted to do some good and went about it the wrong way," he told the paper Wednesday, speaking via videoconference from an old hospital building next to a city jail. No one was injured by the gunfire, but Welch's actions drew national attention because he was motivated by a fringe conspiracy theory about the pizzeria. Police say Welch told them he wanted to "self-investigate" the theory, which purported that Comet is the center of a child-sex ring involving Hillary Clinton and her campaign chief.
