  • Margot Robbie Was “Self-Conscious” About Skimpy ‘Suicide Squad’ Costume

    In Suicide Squad, the Batman villain Harley Quinn (played by Margot Robbie) wears sparkly hot pants and a skin-tight T-shirt, a far cry from the character’s most iconic costume, a head-to-toe jester suit. “As Margot, no, I don’t like wearing that,” she told the New York Times when asked about her Harley Quinn wardrobe. Harley, she told the Times, started wearing hot pants  “because they’re sparkly and fun,” not because “she wanted guys to look at her ass.” Director David Ayer also defended the barely-there wardrobe, saying that it’s “part of the iconography” for the Suicide Squad anti-heroine.

Universe debut in 1992, ranging from a lab coat to a tutu.

  • The vitamin that made elderly mice live longer, and stopped their organs from aging

    Scientists say that they have found evidence that an already-celebrated vitamin can stop the aging process of organs in mice. It could also have the potential to treat degenerative diseases in humans. Called nicotinamide riboside (NR for short), the vitamin was given to elderly mice. Compared to their non-vitamin taking counterparts, the mice were better able to regenerate their muscles and organs. They also lived longer. The study was published Thursday in the journal Science. As humans, mice, and other mammals age, our muscles and organs are less able to regenerate and repair themselves when they’re damaged. This leads to many common age-related disorders, according to Medical Xpress. The scientists,

  • Here's the real reason that photos of bin Laden's body won't ever be shown

    There are a lot of puzzled expressions on people's faces when it comes to the subject of Osama Bin Laden and why the White House has not authorized the release of any pictures of his body. Photographs and video were released of Saddam Hussein's hanging, as were post-mortem pictures of his criminal sons, Uday and Qusay, after Delta Force took them out. Why not release a few pictures of Public Enemy No. 1 to prove that he is dead and show the world what happens when you take on the US? Matt Bissonnette, one of the SEAL Team Six operators on the raid, partially outs the reason in his book, "No Easy Day." The book reads, "In his death throes, he was still twitching and convulsing."

  • Canada's government has trouble detecting citizenship fraud: watchdog

    By David Ljunggren OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada's government is doing a bad job of weeding out fraudulent citizenship applications and this means ineligible people can obtain Canadian passports, the country's top watchdog said on Tuesday. The findings could alarm U.S. critics already worried by what they say are the security risks posed by the new Liberal government's decision to quickly accept 25,000 Syrian refugees after taking power last November. Auditor General Michael Ferguson said in a report he had discovered a series of problems in the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship (IRC) department, which is responsible for making sure only eligible people can become Canadian nationals.

  • Construction workers in Spain unearth an ancient Roman fortune: 600 kilograms of pristine coins

    Some 600 kilograms (1,300 pounds) of bronze Roman coins dating to the 3rd and 4th centuries have been unearthed by construction workers digging ditches in Spain. The find, in 19 amphoras — storage containers — is unique not only because of the volume of coins but because the coins appear to have never been in circulation, making them almost pristine by comparison with other discoveries. Workers in the city of Tomares, in Andalusia, were working on installing a water line to a park in the city of 24,000, according to the Spanish newspaper El País, when they noticed irregular terrain inside a ditch about a metre below ground level. Experts are speculating that the coins were meant to pay taxes or support legions of the Roman armies in Spain at the time.
