  • A deleted text message from vengeful gangster may get Aaron Hernandez off hook for double murder

    The text message was sent way back on July 5, 2013. Perhaps because its sender, Alexander Bradley, realized it held unwanted power, like the capability of impacting his immunity deal in an Aaron Hernandez double murder trial, let alone rocking the entire case altogether. In a plea deal, Bradley, however, gave authorities full access to his phone, including deleted and otherwise privileged communication with his lawyer.

  • We Let Our Baby Cry It Out, and 10 Years Later, This Is What Happened

    Three months into this parenting gig, I'd had enough. Our bedtime routine with our infant son had turned into a two-hour affair that left me and my husband eating dinner at 10 p.m., me up with indigestion for another few hours, and only a few hours of shut-eye before I had to wake up for the day. I was preparing to go back to work, and no amount of concealer, corrector, or eye masks could hide the dark purple circles that had become permanent fixtures under my eyes, never mind function like a thinking adult in an office job. I needed a solution, and I needed one quick. My own parents swore by "Ferberizing" me, and I was willing to give it a try. Ferberizing, or "crying it out," is a sleep training

  • A teen made a website where kittens punch Trump. So, Trump unleashed his lawyers.

    President Trump is busy this week helping to make sure millions of Americans don't lose their health insuran — -sorry, I mean, shutting down a teenage girl. 17-year-old Lucy from San Francisco recently designed a site called Kittenfeed.com (initially called TrumpScratch), where users get to punch Trump's face with tiny little kitchen paws. It seemed like a pretty harmless, anti-Trump site (the kittens don't even scratch!) — until she got a letter from the lawyers of a certain "well known businessman," The Observer reports.  SEE ALSO: People can't stop sharing this cartoon about Trump's 'Muslim ban' That "internationally known" and "famous" businessman (his lawyers words, not mine) is, of course, Donald Trump. In the letter, Trump's general counsel encourages the teen to cease and desist and shut down the website.  Image: www.kittenfeed.com After receiving the letter, Lucy decided to change the name of the website to Kittenfeed.com. That wasn't enough for Trump's counsel, who reportedly continued to press the 17-year-old girl. The family is waiting to see their next move. "It’s so sad that his administration is focused more on being liked, burying real news and taking down sites like mine as they supposedly make him look bad," Lucy told The Observer. Predictably, Trump's lawyers letter had the opposite effect of their intention. After The Observer published the report yesterday, the site's visitors surged from 3,000 to 50,000. Lesson: you can mess with Trump's lawyers, but don't you ever touch an animated kitten. WATCH: Robotic glove lets people with limited hand mobility perform daily tasks

  • How NBA is changing with sex more accessible

    NBA road teams are playing with historic levels of clear-headed competence, and one general manager knows who — make that what — to thank: Tinder. “No need to go to the clubs all night anymore,” the GM told ESPN for an in-depth feature about NBA players’ partying habits — to summarize: bottle service and dimly lit pick-ups mostly have been replaced by room service and app-arranged hook-ups. Messaging through Instagram actually is preferred to Tinder, according to ESPN. Players are known to have hotels leave keys for their road romances to get into their rooms before they even arrive. “It’s absolutely true that you get at least two hours more sleep getting laid on the road today versus 15 years

  • WTF: A Woman Was Denied a Second Job Interview For Asking This Question

  • The Trump kids are in Aspen and it's ruining everyone else's hygge

    It is uncool to stay home during spring break, so the Trump kids are vacationing in Aspen with their families this week. Unfortunately, they seem to be making everyone around them miserable. According to Vanity Fair, numerous other vacationers are not pleased with the chaos Ivanka, Eric and Donald "Stump", Jr. seem to have brought with them to Colorado — including unbearable traffic, crowded restaurants and a rumored 100-person security presence. SEE ALSO: The internet isn't too happy about Ivanka Trump's fancy dress tweet "They're everywhere. There are so many of them," one mom said. "Everyone is complaining. Everyone is annoyed." And with good reason. How is anyone supposed to relax and embrace hygge with such a strong odor of complicity in the air? To be fair, the Trumps have had a hectic week too.
