• Liam Neeson’s Frail Frame Makes Him Almost Unrecognisable

    The 63-year old, Irish actor, Liam Neeson, has caused much concern amongst fans after being photographed looking quite frail on the streets of New York last week. In this dramatic transformation, he appears worryingly gaunt in the face with long grey wispy hair hidden underneath a baseball cap. In fact, he looks almost unrecognisable when compared to the butt-kicking CIA operative Bryan Mills in the Taken franchise.  Copyright [Splash News] Even more shockingly, it was only weeks earlier that he visited The Ronald McDonald House in New York in a much healthier-looking state, more like the Liam Neeson we have all grown to know.

    DEAR ABBY: I am a 58-year-old, twice divorced, hard-working, middle-class female. I spend most of my time working and involved with my three adult children.

It bothers me a bit, but oh well, he's a man. Last week our family went camping. At least a dozen times I saw him position himself so that he could stare at my 40-year-old daughter's behind. ...

  • Antonio Brown arrives at camp in Steelers-themed Rolls-Royce (10 photos)

    LATROBE, Pa. (AP) — Antonio Brown couldn't say no. How often does Rolls-Royce ask if you would like to ride to work in a $500,000 car? So the All-Pro receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers relaxed in the back seat on Saturday while his brother Desmond carefully maneuvered the Phantom — wrapped in a design replete with Brown's signature scrawled across the doors, the Steelers logo on the sideview mirrors and a pair of gold stripes running right down the middle from end to end — to the dorm at Saint Vincent College as the team reported for training camp.

  • Passing Up Harvard: Qualified Black and Latino Kids Aren't Applying to Top Colleges

    According to the study, which was produced by the National Bureau of Economic Research, black and Latino students are more likely than white students to apply to colleges that are closer to their home, that enroll large numbers of minority students, and that have a track record of success with students from their high school. “We consistently find that Hispanic students are least likely of all ethnic groups to apply to college overall and to elite flagship universities in particular,” wrote the study’s authors. The gap persists, according to the report, “even when Hispanic students attend high schools where a majority of students move on to college.” The problem also exists in states like Texas—the subject of the study—in which the top 10 percent of all graduating seniors get automatic admission to the state’s best universities.
