  • Wisconsin governor calls building northern wall along Canadian border a legitimate issue

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is putting a new twist on the topic of securing the border, a staple among the GOP candidates running for president, by pointing north. Walker said in an interview that aired Sunday that building a wall along the country's norther border with Canada is a legitimate issue that merits further review. Republican candidates for president have often taken a get-tough approach on deterring illegal immigration, but they usually focus on the border with Mexico.

  • 9 Movie Couples Who Hated Each Other In Real Life (9 photos)

    Ryan Gosling & Rachel McAdams – ‘The Notebook’ (2004) Theirs is one of contemporary cinema’s most celebrated romances, complete with that iconic scene of them smooching in the rain. Upsettingly for fans of 'The Notebook’, the relationship between Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams was stormy off screen too. Gosling allegedly asked director Nick Cassavetes to replace McAdams with another actress after shooting had begun, and Cassavetes recalls walking into a room to find the pair screaming at each other at the top of their voices. Of course, Ryan and Rachel went on to be one of the cutest couples in Hollywood, which just goes to show how accurate that terrible 'opposites attract’ romcom cliché can be.

  • Donald Trump's deportation call, birthright repeal similar to 1930s' mass removal of Mexicans

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's call for the mass deportation of millions of immigrants living in the U.S. illegally as well as their American-born children bears similarities to a large-scale removal that many Mexican-American families faced 85 years ago. During the 1930s Great Depression, counties and cities in the American Southwest and Midwest forced Mexican immigrants and their families to leave the U.S. over concerns they were taking jobs away from whites despite their legal right to stay. The result: Around 500,000 to 1 million Mexican immigrants and Mexican-Americans were pushed out of United States during the so-called 1930s' repatriation.

Data analyst Jishai Evers, the CEO of the data-driven journalism website Dadaviz, says it's not only that "users are lying" but also that "Ashley Madison created fake accounts or didn't do much to stop others creating fake accounts" that makes the data problematic. Ashley Madison did not verify email addresses.

  • Try Bacon Roasted Potatoes Instead of French Fries — You Won't Be Sorry

    The following post was originally featured on Cooking for Keeps and written by Nicole Shoemaker, who is part of POPSUGAR Select Food. A few weeks ago when Kev and I were wrapping up our California coast vacation in Santa Barbara, and after much research and debate I settled on a cute little restaurant in the downtown area of SB called Scarlett Begonia. Both of us wanted something small and light since we'd gorged on an obscene amount of food the week prior, but as both of the orders reached the table, we realized this was not the place for small portions. My unassuming scrambled eggs were piled excessively high, sprinkled with a liberal amount of aged gouda cheese and then nestled on top of the most perfectly roasted potatoes I'd ever laid eyes on.

  • B.C. judge says Pickton sex assault victim should have settled for $50,000

    A jury was right to reject a woman's claim that her life was ruined after a sexual assault by the brother of serial killer Robert Pickton, says a judge who awarded her no costs at trial. B.C. Supreme Court Justice George Macintosh ruled the woman should have accepted David Pickton's $50,000 settlement offer before the civil trial, which ended in June. Pickton was convicted and fined $1,000 more than two decades ago for the assault inside a trailer at a construction site in Burnaby, B.C.

    Read more about this story from CNN affiliates WSOC and WCNC. Shortly before 3 a.m. Friday, on the 119th anniversary of the Bostian Bridge train tragedy and at about the same time, between 10 and 12 ghost hunters were on that approximately 300-foot long span. Instead, a real Norfolk-Southern train -- three engines and one car -- turned the corner as it headed east to Statesville, about 35 miles north of Charlotte, authorities said. The terrified "amateur ghost watchers" ran away, back toward Statesville, trying to cover the nearly 150 feet to safety, said Iredell County Sheriff's Office Capt. Darren Campbell.
