College students reading this story and others online for hours may become more anxious and less happy. A new Kent State University study says college students who spend hours each day online, texting or talking on cellphones are more anxious, less happy and get lower grades. The Ohio researchers say this appears to be the first study correlating cellphone use to anxiety and happiness. (snip) "The lower frequency users use their phone to keep in touch, check the web and update Facebook but they can put it away and get on with other tasks," (snip) "The higher users are not able to control it and are

One of the best things I have ever done for reprogramming my brain was to give up television. Haven´t had it in my home for over a year and I really miss nothing - well, maybe being able to watch Downton Abbey on Christmas Day, but it really is a good thing to turn it off, and anyway, you can pull up loads of news stuff on internet.

A northern Arizona family that was lost at sea for weeks in an ill-fated attempt to leave the U.S. over what they consider government interference in religion will fly back home Sunday.[snip] Gastonguay said her family was fed up with government control in the U.S. As Christians they don´t believe in "abortion, homosexuality, in the state-controlled church," she said. U.S. "churches aren´t their own," Gastonguay said, suggesting that government regulation interfered with religious independence. Among other differences, she said they had a problem with being "forced to pay these taxes that pay for abortions we don´t agree with."

Sen. Robert Menendez wooed a married newspaper publisher, taking the attractive brunette on a romantic getaway to the Caribbean, a tipster alleges. The New Jersey Dem and Cecilia Reynolds jetted to Puerto Rico, where they stayed at the isolated beach retreat of the island’s then-governor, Anibal Acevedo Vila. In a photo provided by the anonymous informant, Reynolds is sitting naked on a beach and suggestively smiling at the camera. In another set of pictures, they take turns posing against the same sunset backdrop.

Readers will have to forgive me for sounding angry, but the recent news involving GLAAD has enraged me. (snip) In case you don´t know the full extent of GLAAD´s fascism, let me tell you what GLAAD did to me. I won´t hyperlink this, but if you go to GLAAD´s website and seek out their "commentator accountability project," you will find my name. This is GLAAD´s blacklist. Within hours of GLAAD´s publication of my addition to the list, which amounts to an excommunication from polite society, an e-mail was sent to the president of my university, along with dozens of other high

When Barack Obama rose to national prominence following his 2004 keynote address at the Democratic National Convention, his African-American heritage was a footnote to the fawning reception he received from the media and from most Americans. While the speech was not a case study in brilliant oratory, Illinois State Senator Barack Obama exuded charisma and eloquently discussed an appealing if not particularly original theme of unity and bipartisanship. Fast forward to today. President Obama´s race is no longer a footnote. It is central to his presidency. It is arguably his defining characteristic. Unity and bipartisanship are nowhere to be found. Who is responsible

Newspapers are among the last places in America that have close to zero tolerance for [expletive deleted]. I could give you a hint about what word is between the brackets, but I’d best not for fear of arousing the ire of the editing Comstocks. About twice a year, I quote a profanity from a public figure, using just the first letter of the word and then some bowdlerizing asterisks for the rest. No dice, my editor tells me. You’re writing for a family newspaper. There was a time when such standards were the norm at major media institutions in America.

A wild flash mob stormed and trashed a Brooklyn mall, causing so much chaos that the shopping center was forced to close during post-Christmas sales, sources said Friday. More than 400 crazed teens — who mistakenly thought the rapper Fabolous would perform — erupted into brawls all over Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Mill Basin on Thursday at 5 p.m., sources said. The troublemakers looted and ransacked several stores as panicked shoppers ran for the exits and clerks scrambled to pull down metal gates. “I was begging them to stop. There were a lot of kids, hundreds of kids .?.?. [Security] would chase

The 2016 national elections are not that far away. It is timely and important that we not wait until then to begin having constructive discussions about who should be given the opportunity and responsibility to succeed President Barack Obama.(snip)Let’s be clear: they should not be elected because they are women; they should be elected because they are qualified to lead our nation. And those who profess to have a problem with electing two women didn’t complain when we’ve elected two men throughout the history of this nation. We all remember the tremendous surge in voter turnout in 2008 and again in

President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, and their two daughters did not go to church on either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, according to press pool reports. The Obamas are in Kailua, Hawaii for a 17-day Christmas vacation. Although the Obamas did not go to church for Christmas, President Obama did play golf during the afternoon of Dec. 24 and Mrs. Obama spoke with children by telephone on Christmas Eve for about 30 minutes concerning Santa’s whereabouts as tracked by NORAD. That same evening, the president also spoke with U.S. military personnel in different parts of the world by

If you thought the political press was taking stock of its 2012 election year coverage of Mitt Romney’s campaign and was preparing to make some course corrections in order to ensure fairer coverage of the GOP candidates ahead of 2016, you would be mistaken. Indeed, the New York Times appears to view 2012 not as an aberration but as a model for how to cover future Republican presidential campaigns. The first indication that the Times is gearing up to make a Mitt Romney out of Chris Christie came in early December as “bridge-gate,” the allegation that New Jersey’s governor sought

CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill spoke out loudly against A&E’s decision to effectively lift it’s “suspension” of Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson. While he said he’s not “surprised” they made the decision to keep filming with the whole Robertson family, Hill found that decision “morally reprehensible.” “They had to make some sort of gesture to make people happy,” Hill said of the network, “and they did that with the suspension which essentially meant nothing.” Just a Bible network wouldn’t want a “card-carrying atheist” to represent them, he continued, A&E should be able to keep a “card-carrying homophobe” off its air

Hawaii plays underdog

HONOLULU — On these sun-bathed shores, Barack Obama was born and spent his formative years, soaking in an island sensibility that his wife and friends say is indispensable to understanding who he is as president. Yet in the search for a home for his future presidential library, Hawaii has become the underdog, stuck in Chicago´s perpetual shadow. It´s not for lack of trying. A high-level campaign has been underway here since Obama won the Iowa caucuses in 2008 — before it was even clear he´d win his party´s nomination, much less the presidency. From the governor to the state´s congressional

A former Minneapolis, Minnesota mayoral candidate was mercilessly beaten up by two teenage girls after having his cellphone stolen at a Mall of America Starbucks. Mark Andrew came in second to Betsy Hodges in the most competitive mayoral race Minneapolis has seen in a generation. The former Hennepin County Commissioner had just hung up the phone and was in the middle of writing his New Year´s resolutions Thursday evening when a young man came up and swiped his iPhone 4S off the cafe table. ´I was targeted because the phone was out and I´m 63 years old, and I´m sure

A report from Assistant Superintendent Roger Martin stated that the incident happened Dec. 3 in front of several students according to Cincinatti.com. Martin said that four students were interviewed

Ethan Krupp, the little man who played “Pajama Boy” in a widely mocked Obamacare ad, once characterized himself as a “liberal f[***].” Krupp, an Organizing for Action (OFA) content writer who became the face of progressive America while wearing a onesie pajama suit, also remarked that gays “are all liberal f[***]s” and criticized a “conservative gay p[****]” on his now-deleted WordPress blog, entitled “Not Being Creative.”
