    • Dear Abby: Family thinks ill husband is faking it

      DEAR ABBY: My husband has been sick and unable to work for several years due to a debilitating illness. He has been home taking care of the kids while I have been working full time. We have lost everything because of the financial burden of his illness. I am very grateful to my parents for helping us financially during this tough time. Unfortunately, I believe some of my family think my husband is faking his illness. This is hurtful since they have known him for a long time (we’ve been married 12 years). My sister recently asked him in a rather nasty way why he doesn’t just go get a job, and I’m beginning to think that my parents share her sentiment. He already feels guilty and worthless for

    • Kansas governor vetoes Medicaid expansion bill

      State lawmakers in the Republican-controlled senate voted in favor of the measure on Tuesday, just days after President Donald Trump's efforts to repeal and replace the ACA, also known as Obamacare, ended with the bill being pulled from a vote.

    • Gordon Ramsay Reveals the 1 Place You Should Never Eat

      Sure, Gordon Ramsay has high standards, but is there really anything he would never eat? Turns out it's more of a place where he would never eat rather than one specific food — and that's on a plane. In an interview with Refinery29, Gordon revealed his feelings about airplane food and why those feelings might be justified. "There's no f*cking way I eat on planes," he said. "I worked for airlines for 10 years, so I know where this food's been and where it goes, and how long it took before it got on board." Yikes. The man has a point — there's no denying that airplane food is not the best. So what's a traveler to do to avoid midflight hunger, according to the world-renowned chef? If you're like

    • This Mom Saved Her Kids From Being Abducted With One Important Lesson

      When Jodie Norton, the Utah-based blogger behind Time Well Spent, went to the emergency room last year, she got the scare of her life. Only, the scare wasn't related to her health. According to Norton, while she was in the ER, two of her kids were almost abducted. Thankfully, they remembered the "Tricky People" lesson their mom had taught them and stayed safe. Recently, the story has resurfaced, and the message is as timeless as ever. It all started when Norton was in the shower one morning and started experiencing unbearable pain, which turned out to be a ruptured ovarian cyst. Somehow, she got dressed, loaded her four kids into the car, and drove to the hospital five minutes away (she says

      Last year, a futuristic water taxi startup called SeaBubbles first revealed its bold vision to revolutionize urban travel: a network of autonomous, egg-shaped river shuttles equipped with hydrofoils and distributed to cities situated on major waterways around the globe. The idea seemed pretty far out at the time, but now the creators have shared the first images of their first full-scale prototype exclusively with The Verge. The vessels literally hover inches above the water thanks to a similar physics phenomenon that powers the record-setting Hydroptere sailboat in the air.

    • This Guy Wrote Down All the Reasons His Wife Cries, and It'll Crack You Up

      Sometimes women just need to let out a good cry, and we might not even know the reason, let alone remember it a week later. So when one husband couldn't begin to keep up with the reasons for his wife's tears, he decided to write them down. As he said in his Reddit post, "My wife cries at absolutely anything. I mean, ANYTHING. So i started writing the reasons down because reasons." The resulting notebook is hilarious, with reasons from "she was hungover and saw a picture of a piglet" (aw) to "I waited until it was dark and pretended to be the Babadook" (duh). One commenter wrote, "To be fair, I'm a grown ass man and that one might even make me cry." This is a pretty ingenious idea, right? Keeping
