In a White House briefing held Friday, President Obama announced the remaining American troops in Iraq will be home by the end of the year, closing a war effort there that has killed more than 4,400 US servicepeople and wounded 32,000 more since 2003.
“After nine years, America’s war in Iraq will be over,” the president said.
Every woman of a certain age knows the horror of waking up to find a few new wrinkles, but Nguyen Thi Phuong lived a worse nightmare. This 23-year-old Vietnamese woman woke up one morning three years ago and looked 50 years older than she was.
The young woman was given medication for a seafood allergy that may have caused a reaction in which her skin aged decades in a matter of days.
Halloween is fast approaching. Besides figuring out exactly how much candy you'll need for the trick-or-treaters this year, another burning question remains: how will you dress for those adult parties and festivities? While you can always go with the tried-and-true — zombies, vampires, and superheroes — may we suggest something a little more timely? We took a look at the most popular topical costumes being sold by retailers, and added in a few of our own ideas for homemade get-ups as well. It's safe to say
For about a year, a man using the pseudonym Phoenix Jones has donned a costume and mask and prowled the streets of Seattle in an effort to thwart crime. But early Monday morning, it was the self-styled superhero who found himself behind bars.
Seattle police say Jones approached a group of people at about 2:30 a.m. and assaulted them with pepper spray. The individuals involved say they were “dancing and having a good time” after leaving a Seattle nightclub, but Jones maintains they were fighting and he was simply breaking it up.
Netflix has been doing so much backpedaling lately, it’s surprising the company hasn’t adopted a bicycle for its logo.
In the most recent reversal, Netflix announced Monday that it’s scrapping a plan to split its streaming and DVD-by-mail services into two different companies and would instead keep both under the Netflix name. The abandoned idea would’ve seen the mailed DVD service take on the name Qwikster, with a separate website and separate billing.
On Monday, after Hank Williams Jr. appeared on Fox News and compared President Obama and House Speaker John A. Boehner’s recent golf outing to “Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu,” ESPN pulled Williams’ classic opening theme from that night’s airing of ‘Monday Night Football.’
‘All My Rowdy Friends Are Here on Monday Night,’ which includes the catchphrase, “Are you ready for some football?,” had opened the show for nearly 20 years. At the time, the network declined to say whether the benching would be permanent or not, but now it seems it is.
As the world mourns the death of Apple visionary Steve Jobs, a commencement speech he gave at Stanford University in June of 2005 — just a year after his initial diagnosis with cancer — has begun making the rounds once again.
It took them 28 years to get to the altar, but KISS rocker Gene Simmons, 62, and his longtime girlfriend, actress Shannon Tweed, 54, finally made it official on Saturday night.
In a lavish outdoor ceremony at the Beverly Hills Hotel, Tweed walked down the aisle in an ivory gown from Priscilla of Boston, swapping vows with Simmons as their two children, Nick, 22, and Sophie, 19, looked on.
When rock bands name themselves, it seems they feel proper spelling and/or grammar is only for the radically uncool. Otherwise, we’d have Deaf Leopard, The Beetles, and Fish. And then what would we be?
In the wake of unpopular rate increases that caused customers to cancel subscriptions in droves and resulted in the company stock nosediving, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings apologized in a blog post on Sunday.
