    • The Clintons are hatching a plan for their comeback

      The Clintons are already plotting their comeback, a new report details. Hillary Clinton is looking for a path to return to the political fray, as both she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, examine how the former secretary of state suffered the most surprising, epic political defeat in recent memory, Politico reports. “[D]espite the grave disappointment, resilience is in the Clintons’ DNA. So, while I certainly don’t expect to see them trying to assert their authority, I think there will be natural and welcome opportunities for them to engage,” said Mack McLarty, Bill Clinton’s former chief of staff. Hillary Clinton is receiving briefings from her former campaign manager, Robby Mook,

    • Sweet thank you card from ball girl to tennis pro Jo-Wilfried Tsonga goes viral

      There isn't always room for niceties in the world of professional sport, but French tennis player Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has bucked the trend. You might remember him helping out a ball girl who was in tears after being struck by a ball at last year's Australian Open, stopping the match to accompany her off the court. SEE ALSO: Tennis pros: Don't hit ball kids 'cos your hopes and dreams will be dashed Here's a video of the moment to help jog your memory. Well, twelve months on, the ball girl — real name Giuliana — penned a thank you card to the Frenchman, which he shared on Facebook while back in Melbourne for the tennis tournament. "Dear Mr Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, I wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you for helping me out on court during your round 2 match of the Australian Open 2016," the letter reads. "I'm not sure if you remember me but I was the ball girl you escorted off court. I would also like to take this opportunity to apologise for all the times when you asked for the ball but I didn't service it to you or acknowledge you." The card revealed Giuliana had a virus on the day that also affected her hearing and vision, hence inhibiting her performance on the court. The expectations for these ball kids are understandably set quite high. "Thank you so much for the kindness you showed me. I really appreciate that you were able to see that I needed some help and were kind enough to escort me off court," Giuliana added. She signed off the card with her name and her ball kid number, #180. At the time, Tsonga told reporters that he "didn't do anything special" by helping her off the court, but he did thank Giuliana for her letter Sunday. What a guy, hey.

    • Father and son accused of rape want ‘only law book that truly matters’ at their trial: The Bible

      A father and son accused of raping a teenage girl over a three-year period and keeping her shackled in a basement have made it clear that they don’t have faith in the law or in the people who practice it. When they face an Ohio jury as they defend themselves against criminal charges that carry long prison sentences, they will rely on one book: The Bible. Timothy Ciboro and his son, Esten Ciboro, both of Toledo, are each charged with multiple counts of rape. The trial is scheduled to start this week, months after the girl, who is Timothy Ciboro’s stepdaughter, managed to unshackle herself and escape while her alleged abusers were gone, authorities said. During a hearing Friday, the Ciboros made

    • Dear Abby: I'm mistreated by friend's teenage kid

      DEAR ABBY: I have had a best friend for more than 20 years. We met when we were 18 and have been inseparable ever since. I was best man in his wedding, and when his first child was born, I traveled six hours to be at the hospital when “Sara” was born. I have never missed a birthday or Christmas. When my friend announced his family was moving from Ohio to Arizona, I knew I couldn’t be away from him and his family, so I moved as well. I have no family of my own, and I adore his two girls. Well, Sara turned 13 this year and like most teenagers, she’s distancing herself from her family and even more so from me. When her mom and dad invite me for dinner or a family get-together, she barely acknowledges

    • This is the iPhone 8 we’ve been waiting to see

      For Apple fans, the arrival of a new year means a few things. First, it means that new iPads are on the way — at least, they're on the way if recent rumors of delays aren't accurate. But beyond that, it means the start of a fresh new cycle of rumors and leaks that will continue right up until September, when Apple finally takes the wraps off of this year's new iPhone models. For the iPhone's tenth anniversary, the rumor cycle kicked off early this time around. In fact, iPhone 8 rumors first started popping up months before the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus even debuted. We've seen and heard plenty of intriguing things so far about Apple's upcoming redesigned iPhone, and now all of the rumors have been visualized in what may very well be one of the sleekest iPhone concepts we've ever seen. YouTube channel "ConceptsiPhone" has posted a video that attempts to visualize many of the iPhone 8 rumors and reports we've seen so far. Multiple sources have claimed that Apple's 2017 iPhone will Apple go back to a design similar to the one used on the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5, with a glass face and a glass back joined by stainless steel edges. With a few exceptions (like that camera... oof ), the concept phone shown off in the video below is a gorgeous modernization of Apple's earlier iPhone designs. It features curved glass on the front and back with lines that are continued by the stainless steel wrapped around the phone's edges. The display on the front stretches all the way to either side of the device, and the home button has been removed, just like we expect. Replacing it is a next-generation Touch ID scanner embedded in the screen, and the rest of the button's functions are expected to be replaced by 3D Touch gestures. Here are some more iPhone 8 specs envisioned in the video: High quality Gorilla Glass Liquid metal frame 6.9mm thin 5.8 inch OLED edge to edge display Wireless Charging Touch ID built into display Second touch sensitive display on lower bezel Smart connector 10nm A11 chip Dual 12mp wide angle + telephoto lens 3D camera technology Will this iPhone 8 concept come anywhere close to representing the real thing Apple has planned for us later this year? No one know, but we can certainly hope that's the case. The full video is embedded below, and check out this post for a rundown of some of the biggest changes we're expecting in the iPhone 8.

      On Saturday, President Donald Trump excoriated the media for — in his view — massively understating the size of his inaugural crowds. “I turn on one of the networks, and they show an empty field,” Trump said at a speech Saturday afternoon at the CIA. “We had 250,000 people literally around in the little ball we constructed.” In other words, 250,000 people had been given tickets to the swearing-in ceremony, which is what the Joint Congressional Committee for Inaugural Ceremonies told CNN.

    • Alexis Bellino Celebrates Her 40th Birthday With A Gatsby Theme Party

      Am I the only one who feels like pretty much every theme party these days is Gatsby themed? I get that the movie came out a couple years ago and that the outfits are fun without being too outrageous and stepping outside of the realm of regular clothing, but it’s been done A LOT. Well, it just happened again and this time the Gatsby fete was to celebrate Alexis Bellino’s 40th birthday. In the least shady way possible, I had no idea that Alexis was that young. Since she was all about being traditional and old fashioned when she was a Real Housewives of Orange County cast member, it seemed like she was older. But anyway, she did it up for the Gatsby theme in a party that looked worthy to be the
