      The vibe outside Minneapolis’ U.S. Bank Stadium, the home of the Vikings since June 2016, has gone from tailgate fun to a scene from The Birds. According to The Guardian, the gleaming glass that covers the outside of the structure — a structure that cost over $1 billion in taxpayer dollars to build — reflects the sky almost perfectly. Birds flying close to the new stadium are unable to tell the difference between what is glass and what is the great blue yonder, causing them to fly beak-first into the arena’s walls.

    • Inside WWE legend Big Show’s incredible weight loss

      In a profession where most athletes are encouraged to continue to make their physiques bigger, scarier and more outlandish, WWE superstar Big Show’s dramatic weight loss has captured the imagination of many. A pretty poor diet contributed to his massive size — which originally stemmed from a tumor that formed on his pituitary gland during childhood — and the 45-year-old, whose real name is Paul Wight, decided enough was enough. You don’t make the transformation I’ve made without a serious commitment to changing 40 years of improper diet and improper training,” he recently told WWE.com. Big Show teamed up with Miami-based celebrity trainer Dodd Romero — who has worked with the likes of actor Denzel Washington and baseball star Alex Rodriguez — and devised a plan that included swimming, cycling and weight training.

    • President Trump addresses the Joint Congress for the first time (29 photos)

      WASHINGTON – In his first speech to a joint session of Congress, President Trump on Tuesday challenged divided lawmakers and a polarized nation to look past his turbulent early days in office and rally behind the “America First” vision of his history-making campaign. “A new national pride is sweeping across our nation,” Trump declared to a packed House of Representatives at the outset of the hour-long address. “What we are witnessing today is the renewal of the American spirit.” The entrepreneur stayed true to many of the core messages of his insurgent and profoundly nationalist candidacy – blaming immigration and global trade for a range of ills, expressing resentment at the burdens of America’s post-World War II global leadership, pushing for dismantling Obamacare – while dropping some of his most inflammatory rhetoric. “By finally enforcing our immigration laws, we will raise wages, help the unemployed, save billions and billions of dollars, and make our communities safer for everyone,” he said. But, he insisted, “the time for small thinking is over. The time for trivial fights is behind us.” The speech received a chilly reception from Congressional Democrats, who audibly gasped when the president mentioned his directive to track crime by undocumented immigrants, and laughed at another point when Trump said he was draining the swamp. Many of the female lawmakers were dressed in white, a symbol of the women’s suffrage movement. “I saw Democrat women all put on white clothes and sat in the same place, what was that about?” asked Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, after the speech, adding that no one had explained to him what rights men have that women do not. He said Democrats had been “tepid” and “flat” during the address…. ..Read more by Olivier Knox and Liz Goodwin on Yahoo News >>   See more news-related photo galleries and follow us on Yahoo News Photo Tumblr .

    • Here's What That Drawer Underneath Your Oven Is Actually For

      If you're like us, you probably use that big drawer underneath your stove to hoard cookie sheets, muffin tins, and bulky skillets. But regardless of what you put in it, we bet you aren't using that space for its intended purpose: a warming drawer. Yep, that's right. It sounds crazy that appliance manufacturers expect us to let such a large potential storage space sit empty, but on some oven models, it's designed to be a spot to keep your food warm. If you're skeptical, just dig up your oven's owner's manual. You may find a description like this: "The warming drawer is designed to keep hot foods at serving temperature. Always start with hot food. Cold or room-temperature foods cannot be heated,

      Was Ivanka Trump going clubbing Tuesday night? No, she was attending the supposedly more sober occasion of President Donald Trump’s first address to a joint session of Congress. Fashion choice-wise, the president’s daughter left many on social media a bit confused. So did First Lady Melania Trump. With regard to Ivanka, she didn’t wear a frock from her eponymous line, which is the subject of the nationwide #GrabYourWallet boycott, but a form-fitting off-the-shoulder “orchid pink” satin dress from French fashion designer Roland Mouret.

    • Casey Affleck Breaks Silence About Sexual Harassment Controversy

      The actor's victory on Sunday night was met with some criticism from those who felt Academy voters were overlooking unsavoury allegations from Affleck's past. In a new interview with the Boston Globe, the Massachusetts native finally addresses the controversy, which stems from accusations of sexual harassment levelled against him in 2010. Affleck has denied any wrongdoing, and the lawsuit, brought by two women who worked with him on the 2009 film I'm Still Here, was settled out of court.

Despite the 36-year-old actor’s film La La Land winning six awards, Mandi stole the spotlight from her Oscar-nominated sibling — thanks to her golden gown and good looks.

    • How to hack your Keurig machine and get a better cup of coffee

      To produce the best possible cup from your Keurig machine, you must do something antithetical to the whole instant-gratification, K-Cup pod culture: You must learn a few basic things about brewing coffee. The whole point of the contraption is to provide the fastest possible path to your stimulant — without the time, labor or brain power required for even an automated drip maker, like a Mr. Coffee. More than 23 million of the company’s brewers sit on countertops in American homes, gobbling up millions and millions of pods annually, despite the fact that the ecological impact of all that trash prompted one of Keurig’s founders to wish he had never invented the machine. Environmental considerations don’t seem to have blunted the Keurig’s popularity, which says something either about our love of convenience or our willingness to buy recyclable pods (which Keurig expects to manufacture for all its coffees by 2020).

      Golf's rule-makers unveiled on Wednesday a radical set of proposals they hope will simplify and speed up the game, with Tiger Woods quick to give his high-profile backing.

"We are really about modernising the rules of golf and, in very simple terms, trying to make them easier to understand and apply," said David Rickman, the R&A's executive director of governance.
