• Fox News asked a Chicago protester about black-on-black crime. His response was perfect.

    The common defense to criticisms of racial disparities in police use of force takes the form of a question: "But what about black-on-black crime?" The conservative argument is that black people are disproportionately killed by gun violence in their own communities, so perhaps they should worry about that before they worry about what police are doing. On Tuesday night, Fox News's Mike Tobin put the black-on-black crime question to a protester in Chicago, Brendan Glover, after the release of a video showing the police shooting of Laquan McDonald. Mike Tobin: Essentially the question he's getting to is why is there not outrage when there's black on black violence.

  • US Republicans move to dump Trump

    Many say the populist crazy talk is typical of the White House primaries, but Republican frontrunner Donald Trump's increasingly incendiary remarks are leading some conservatives to brand him a "fascist" and party rivals to ramp up attacks against him. Republican experts are warning that Trump could do lasting damage to the GOP, and that his nomination in the party primaries would essentially hand the presidency to Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton. Establishment conservatives even took the unfathomable step of using the F-word against a member of their own party.

  • Michelle Obama’s a Green Gladiator in a Michael Kors Dress (28 photos)

    Being the first lady comes with a lot of responsibility. And while being a trendsetter certainly pales in comparison to the weight of attempting to curb the childhood obesity problem in the United States or getting kids moving, dressing fashionably is part of the job. A few years into her husband’s presidency, Michelle Obama has already set herself apart from her predecessors, bringing a modern edge — and even J. Crew — to the White House. She’s also a political dresser, conscientiously picking labels to fit with occasions, from wearing a custom Vera Wang gown for a state dinner hosting Chinese President Xi Jinping and Tadashi Shoji when Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife Akie Abe came to Washington to Missoni in Italy and Preen in England.  Follow us on Facebook , Instagram , and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

  • Missing girl lived in Internet cafes, made money playing Crossfire

    When Chinese police forces ran the ID of a 24 year old woman going by the name Xiao Yun, they had no idea the stone they were overturning. The ID turned out to be fake, and though she claimed to have been raised by her grandparents, it transpired that Yun had run away from home at 14 and spent the past 10 years living in Internet cafes and bath houses, much of it playing the free FPS Crossfire . Although not a well known title in Western markets, Crossfire is actually the world’s most popular FPS, easily eclipsing the likes of Counter-Strike  and various Call of Duty games. The publisher of Crossfire , Smilegate, claims to have over 400 million registered players, earning it more than $1.4 billion in 2014. It’s one of the most popular games in China, and because of that, Xiao Yun’s dedication to it quickly garnered her attention from fellow internet cafe gamers. She told police that she made much of her money from teaching others how to win, coaching them to become better players. She also sometimes relied on donations and did some cashier work at those same outlets.

However, there was an inkling that Yun may have been still around, as a couple of years ago, someone claiming to be her messaged her mother on WeChat, a popular messaging application in China. Her mother claimed to have left her mobile number the same throughout the years in the hope that her daughter would find her. While she did, the daughter refused to reunite with her family, leaving her family skeptical that the person who’d contacted them was in fact the long-lost daughter. Though Xiao Yun initially refused to meet with her parents even after police uncovered her identity, she eventually agreed to do so. Since the girl originally ran away after an argument with her parents, the mother has now pledged to be a little more lenient. Her only punishment was a 1000 Yuan fine from the police for using a fake ID. Also watch: Asus ROG GX700 Hands On Please enable Javascript to watch this video

  • Do You Wonder if Your Dog is Lonely? Here’s the Answer

    It’s only natural to wonder if your dog gets lonely or if they would be happier with some companionship.  When an email blast for pet owners suggested that a product raising funds on Indiegogo, a desktop fish tank called the EcoQube C, might be the perfect solution to help a dog feel less alone or bored, we had to wonder: does a dog need a pet? The short answer, from Debra F. Horwitz, a board certified veterinary behaviorist, a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists, and co-editor of the book Decoding Your Dog, is a resounding no.  Related: 7 Questions Vets Wish You’d Ask Them About Your Pet Dogs are unlikely to consider any additions to the house to be their pet, Horwitz explains, but rather to see them as a companion animal. I would suspect there could be a few dogs who might find watching a fish tank to be a diversion, but I would really doubt they would consider the fish a companion, but they might watch the movement,” Horwitz says with a laugh.
