Millionaire 420 square feet

Millionaire 420 square feet, In television news, NBC’s the “Today” show featured a millionaire’s 420 square feet home. And what’s especially crazy is that the owner of the home is a millionaire who has recently decided to seriously downsize. Gra­ham Hill sold a tech start-up before the age of 30 for millions of dollars. And afterward, he wanted to enjoy the good life. That included buying a massive living space, filling it up with everything he could ever desire, and living what most rich people consider to be the good life. But in his TV interview, Hill suggested that that lifestyle wasn’t satisfying. In fact, he referred to it as wasteful. Now, Hill is living a much more simple life. And the millionaire 420 square feet home is exactly what Hill is looking for—less clutter and less material possessions to have to account for. “It’s easier to find things. It’s just overall simpler,” says Hill on the “Today” show. Walking around his very small, tight home, Hill is legitimately happy. H

New Pepsi bottle

New Pepsi bottle, Pepsi is rolling out a new shape for its 20-ounce bottle for the first time in about 17 years. The new bottle has a contoured bottom half that appears easier to grip, and the wraparound label is shorter so that more of the drink is exposed. The change follows a number of splashy moves in the past year by PepsiCo to improve results for its namesake soda, including a multiyear deal to sponsor the Super Bowl halftime show and a wide-ranging deal with pop star Beyonce. PepsiCo Inc., based in Purchase, N.Y., has been working to revitalize the brand after losing market share to Coca-Cola Co. in recent years. Andrea Foote, a PepsiCo spokeswoman, said the new 20-ounce bottle is part of the company's ongoing update of marketing and packaging materials for the cola. The single-serve bottles, which are widely sold in coolers at drugstores and other retailers, will begin rolling out in April. The new shape will also be used for the 16-ounce bottles, which aren't as commo

Obamacare ‘kills’, Literally Kills Women

Obamacare ‘kills’, We planned to take a least a 24-hour break from posting about Michele Bachmann... but then we saw video of remarks she made on the House floor today on the third anniversary of Obamacare's passage. It's no secret Michele hates Obamacare as if it were Satan incarnate. But we were still taken aback when we heard her express concern that it "literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens." Here's a transcript of Bachmann's remarks, followed by the raw video: The American people, especially vulnerable women, vulnerable children, vulnerable senior citizens, now get to pay more and get less. That's why we're here because we're saying let's repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens. Let's not do that! Let's love people, let's care about people. Let's repeal it now while we can. The Hill puts Bachmann's floor speech in a charitable context: Ba

Reagan daughter lesbian novel, Publishes Self

Reagan daughter lesbian novel, Patti Davis has publishes self, avowed her most recent book — about a woman who falls in love with her sister-in-law — is not at all autobiographical in nature, and that she herself is not a lesbian. Under the headline, “’I didn’t want to write another ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ or whatever’; Reagan 'sdaughter lesbian novel is not autobiographical”, the Daily Mail notes that the late President’s daughter has self-published her book entitled “Till Human Voices Wake Us.” “Till Human Voices Wake Us” is currently available on Amazon for $3 per online copy. Although reviews have been mixed by fans so far, Patti Davis has made it clear to the public that her controversial book about a woman who finds herself attracted to her sister-in-law isn’t about herself or her sexuality.     “This is not me. None of it is autobiographical.” Although the former Playboy poser Patti Davis is well-known for her liberal views, she has also unveiled that no serious sex scenes a

Christie gay therapy, Gov Undecided

Christie gay therapy, New Jersey’s Republican governor, a man who fashions himself a 2016 presidential candiate, is unsure about therapy that claims  to “cure” gays through hugging them homoerotically and then bashing a pillow with a tennis racket.  Seriously. New Jersey is considering similar legislation to that recently passed in California, banning “ex-gay” therapy to supposedly cure gay people, especially kids, through all sorts of bizarre and downright laughable techniques, such as the two I described above.  Other techniques include “manning up” the gay guy, making him play sports and learn to act like a man, whereas lesbians are forced to put on pretty dresses and lipstick.  This is what Chris Christie is unsure about. Governor Christie is saying that he’s just not sure he likes the legislation, because he’d hate to interfere with a parent’s right to use quack science to permanently damage their child and push them into suicide. You really out to read this piece in NorthJersey.

Christie gay therapy

Christie gay therapy, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said Wednesday he isn't sure whether to back legislation that would ban the controversial practice known as gay conversion therapy. "I'm of two minds just on this stuff in general," Christie said at a press conference, according to the Newark Star-Ledger. "Number one, I think there should be lots of deference given to parents on raising their children. ... Generally philosophically, on bills that restrict parents ability to make decisions on how to care for their children, I'm generally a skeptic of those bills. Now, there can always be exceptions to those rules and this bill may be one of them." Christie, who opposes marriage equality, said he doesn't know much about the so-called conversion therapy. Reparative therapy claims that gay people can change their sexual orientation with help, which often includes religious efforts. The therapy stems from the once accepted -- but now discredited --

Obamacare ‘kills’, Literally Kills people

Obamacare ‘kills’, was one comment Rep. Michele Bachmann was recently quoted saying that has the public talking this week. According to the Huffington Post this Thursday, March 21, Michele Bachmann recently argued that President Barack Obama’s health care law may in fact “literally kill” people. With the headline, “Michele Bachmann: Repeal Obamacare before it ‘literally kills’”, the Post noted that the well-known political figure appealed this Thursday to the House of Representatives to quickly repeal Obamacare, calling it a failure already. "Repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens," said Bachmann firmly. Bachmann’s Obamacare “kills” comment is one of the most recent from several House Republicans who are working to put an end to the health care plan, though they have been unable to do so, despite almost 40 separate appeals to repeal the plan in recent months. Michele Bachmann noted that the people of America will ultimately

Obamacare ‘kills’

Obamacare ‘kills’, Democrats have argued for weeks that the House GOP budget, which the House approved today, would hurt women and children. More broadly, Democrats have said Republicans are waging a "war on women," an argument they used in last year's election campaign. But Bachmann explained that under the healthcare law that many call "ObamaCare," employers have an option of providing health insurance only to their employees, and not their families. She said women are two and a half times more likely to rely on their spouses for health insurance compared to men, and said business decisions to stop insuring families will fall hardest on women and their children. She then said women and children who find themselves without health insurance would have trouble buying insurance at the state insurance exchanges. "They can't go to a healthcare exchange because the healthcare exchange subsidies won't b

Crash kills 6

Crash kills 6, Six suspected undocumented immigrants were killed and nine others injured when a truck being chased by police and U.S. Border Patrol officers crashed into a security barrier at a Navy facility in Texas, a base spokesman said Thursday. Fifteen people were in the truck, with 10 crammed inside the cab and five under a tarp in the truck's bed, said John Gagne, spokesman for Naval Air Station Kingsville. The crash occurred late Wednesday when the extended-cab pickup sped past an officer at the main gate at the base, south of Corpus Christi, Gagne told CNN. The GMC Sierra was being chased by a Kingsville police cruiser and border officers about 11:15 p.m. when it ran the checkpoint. It was not immediately clear why the truck was being chased. Guards deployed a pop-up barrier outside a second security post, and the truck slammed into that obstacle without slowing down. "That's exactly what the barrier is designed to prevent," Gagne said, referring to the dri

Bo Obama

Bo Obama, a single (but looking to settle down) goldendoodle named Ramona has proposed canine marriage to presidential pooch Bo Obama. In a video produced by the Oregon Humane Society, the 2-year-old Ramona frets over an upcoming Humane Society fundraiser. "Oh, no," Ramona thinks, "I don't have a date for Doggie Dash!" The Web-savvy Ramona tries to invite her favorite Portuguese water dog through Twitter and Facebook, but she doesn't hear back. She even tries calling the White House, but is told the pooch doesn't have a cellphone. (Side note: Get with the times, Bo.) Eventually, Ramona sends Bo a smoochie letter full of hearts and poor penmanship. "Dear Bo," the note reads, "Will u goz to Doggie Dash wit me?" An invitation then appears. "Dear Bo Obama, You are cordially invited to serve as Grand Dog Marshal of the Oregon Humane Society 2013 Doggie Dash. And marry Ramona, if you like." The event is scheduled for May 11 in P

Vegas arrests

Vegas arrests The term “Vegas arrests” began to trend on major search engines this week after ABC Local reported this Thursday, March 21, that almost 100 workers on the Las Vegas Strip were recently arrested for protesting in a demonstration against the Cosmopolitan casino. With the headline, “Vegas: 98 arrests in union protest on Strip at Cosmopolitan”, ABC News revealed that tourists watched the protest demonstration as police officials arrested 98 casino workers, all of whom seemed to be protesting over unresolved union contract issues.     “If we don’t’ get no contract, you don’t get no peace”, the workers chanted as they were led away by police.

Giuliani LifeLock

Giuliani LifeLock, Rudy Giuliani, former crime-busting mayor of New York City, has taken a new job: TV pitchman. Television ads featuring the 2008 presidential candidate and onetime D.A. have recently begun airing. In them, Giuliani warns viewers of the dangers of identity theft and touts the services of ID-protection company LifeLock. The ads follow the November announcement by LifeLock CEO Todd Davis that the company had partnered with "America's Mayor" and with Giuliani's firm, Giuliani Partners, in order to promote better public awareness of the threat posed by ID thieves. Tami Nealy, LifeLock's senior director of corporate communications, says in an email to ABC News that identity theft has been the No. 1 consumer complaint reported to the Federal Trade Commission for the past 12 years. New York's ex-mayor, she explains, "has a strong track record of fighting crime, which is why we are working with him." Giuliani and his team will be pro

Jon Hamm Rumor

Jon Hamm Rumor, Hamm and the rest of the cast from AMC's Mad Men are getting ready for another two seasons of the show. Rumor has it that when Jon Hamm was filming season 6, his "freewheeling bulge" was so distracting the staff had to request he wear underwear. The rumor about Jon Hamm comes from Confidenti@l, an online gossip column. The site claims that an AMC insider told them Jon Hamm likes to go commando. While wearing the 1960's themed cloths required for the show, Hamm's pants were a little too tight. The source told Confidenti@l, "This season takes place in the 1960s, where the pants are very tight and leave little to the imagination." The Daily News tried to contact Jon Hamm for a comment about the rumor, which is still just a rumor. There is really no proof the Mad Men star was overexposed on set. A representative for Jon Hamm told the Daily News, "It is ridiculous and not really funny at all. I'd appreciate you taking the high road a

Andy Griffith widow

Andy Griffith widow, The widow of actor Andy Griffith has gotten a permit to tear down the house where he lived for many years on the North Carolina waterfront, upsetting friends who had hoped it would be preserved as a museum or Graceland-type estate. Cindi Griffith obtained the demolition permit Monday, according to Dare County records. County officials and friends confirmed the permit is to demolish a smaller house along the Roanoke Sound that Griffith bought in the 1950s, not the larger house that he and Cindi built nearby several years ago. William Ivey Long, the Tony Award-winning costume designer whose parents were friends with Griffith and his first wife, Barbara, said Griffith told him in 2007 that he wanted to preserve the older home as a museum. The two discussed the possibility when Long had an exhibit of his costumes at the Cameron Art Museum in Wilmington, Long said. “We compared notes,” Long said in a phone interview from his studio in New York City. “I had to fit mine

Beyonce Shines as New Face of H&M's Summer Collection

Courtesy: H&M As if summer couldn't come soon enough, we just got word this morning that Beyoncé is the new face of H&M's upcoming collection. Hot! In the beachy campaign shot, the gorgeous star exudes retro glamour in patterned hot pants and a plunging cream-colored top, accessorized with tropical flowers pinned both to her sideswept hair and her peep-toe heels.  Jay-Z's wife radiates confidence and even a sense of luxury in the middle of paradise (the Bahamas, to be exact)—undoubtedly bringing tremendous appeal to the popular (and affordable!) mass retailer. "I've always liked H&M's focus on fun and affordable fashion. I really loved the concept we collaborated on to explore the different emotions of women represented by the four elements—fire, water, earth and wind. It was a beautiful shoot on a tropical island. It felt more like making a video than a commercial," the star said in a r

Obama Lays Out Case for Israel to Revive Peace Talks

Laying out his case for a future Israel at peace with the Palestinians, President Obama delivered an enthusiastically welcomed speech on Thursday before an audience of youthful Israelis in Jerusalem, assuring them of America’s strong support but asking them to empathize with their Israeli-occupied neighbors and “look at the world through their eyes.” In a carefully crafted address that was widely regarded as the centerpiece of his first trip to Israel as president, Mr. Obama spoke in lofty terms about Israel’s history and ideals, pointing out again and again how America had stood at its side and saying he remains unquestionably committed to Israel’s security. But the speech also seemed intended as an opportunity for Mr. Obama to appeal to a young generation of Israelis who do not necessarily share the hardened views of many of their elders, who are at best mistrustful of the Palestinians and wary of Mr. Obama himself. “I recognize that there are those who are not simply skeptical a

$860M overcharges

$860M overcharges, The award that has been years in the making was handed down in Cleveland this week. Ohio employers who dealt with an alleged $860 million in overcharges from the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation are happy with the ruling from a judge. WKYC reported the details on March 20. The case ties to the allegations that the BWC overcharged employers for nearly a decade when it came to Ohio's insurance fund for injured workers. Approximately 270,000 small-business owners were said to have been affected and it seems many don't even know they're impacted by the class action. The lead plaintiff, Earl Stein, claims that the BWC never denied the $860 million in overcharges, though there has been debate about the exact amount involved. Stein says that with the judgment, many Ohio jobs can be created as the money flows back to the businesses. Before the judgement, experts for the Bureau estimated that the overcharges were more in the neighborhood of $400 million.

Gaza militants fire at Israel during Obama visit

Palestinian militants fired two rockets into southern Israel from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip early Thursday morning, the second day of President Obama's three-day visit to Israel and the West Bank. The rockets, which were fired before Obama left Jerusalem for meetings with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who heads the Palestinian Authority, the internationally recognized Palestinian government in the West Bank, exploded in the city of Sderot, a town close to the Gaza-Israel border.

Hanley Ramirez injures thumb

Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez suffered a thumb injury Tuesday while playing for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic championship game. Ramirez was fitted with a splint as a precautionary measure, the MLB Network reported during the telecast of the Dominican Republic's victory over Puerto Rico. The three-time All-Star will be evaluated by Dodgers team doctors on Wednesday. It is unclear how Ramirez, who played third base during the tournament, suffered the injury. He made a diving attempt at a grounder in the third inning but did not leave the contest until the sixth. Ramirez is set to enter his first full season with the Dodgers, who acquired the former NL batting champion in a blockbuster trade last year with the Miami Marlins.

Flurry of offseason departures not new to Ravens

Ed Reed intercepts a pass intended for Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson during the second half of the 2011 playoffs. The way things are going, you have to wonder if the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens' season opener is going to be a celebration or a wake. The offseason decimation of the Ravens apparently kept going Wednesday when free-agent safety Ed Reed, a guy who has Hall of Fame practically written on his résumé, reportedly agreed to join the Texans. Like Ray Lewis, who has retired, Reed wasn't just some extra playing a part. He was a core player for a team that has gone to the playoffs five straight seasons. But as Baltimore owner Steve Bisciotti, top executives Ozzie Newsome and Eric DeCosta and coach John Harbaugh strolled the grounds of the Arizona Biltmore resort in Phoenix this week, dire concern didn't seem to be an issue. Yeah, Lewis and Reed are gone. So too are center Matt Birk (retired), wide receiver Anquan Boldin (traded), linebackers Paul
