• No, Megyn Kelly Should Not Have Worn That Dress

    Megyn Kelly reported on the Republican National Convention while wearing a spaghetti strap dress. The internet went crazy: people saying she was inappropriately dressed and people saying we should all shut up about her dress because you go girl, or whatever. Here's the deal: Society has norms, and when you go against those norms you're going to get backlash. There's a reason that employees at Target wear khaki pants and red shirts, and the cashier at Burger King wears a uniform and a reason you put on a suit when you go for a job interview. Your clothing is a symbol that indicates who you are. You don't see emo teens wearing pink party dresses, and you don't see biker gangs wearing tuxedos. Everyone

    Zoe McLellan, who played Special Agent Meredith “Merri” Brody on NCIS: New Orleans, will not be returning for Season 3, Deadline has confirmed. It was a creative decision, according to TVLine which broke the story. Her relationship with a Homeland Security agent compromised her position as a special agent. McLellan’s character’s exit clears for way for a new FBI special agent, (previously announced new series regular Vanessa Ferlito) to look into concerns about Agent Pride’s NCIS team. NCIS: New Orleans Season 3 premieres on September 20.

  • Meet Team USA gymnast Laurie Hernandez (5 photos)

    Laurie Hernandez keeps insisting she’s too young to know better. That she’s so new to this whole Olympics thing, she doesn’t know she’s supposed to be scared. ”You just kind of have to act naive to it,” the 16-year-old said with a shrug. ”It’s just another meet. The arena is just a little bigger than usual.” The stakes, too. Yet the youngest member of the powerhouse U.S. Olympic women’s gymnastics team hardly seems intimidated. Hernandez is too busy putting on a show, her effortless charisma and ”dare you to look away” performance during last week’s Olympic trials erased whatever doubt remained in national team coordinator Martha Karolyi’s mind about Hernandez’s ability to handle the big stage.

  • Queen Letizia's White Dress Looks Pretty Darn Simple — Until You Zoom In

    No, your eyes are not tricking you. At first glance, Queen Letizia of Spain seems to be wearing a plain little white dress — A-line, sleeveless, to the knees, with a split collar — but if you look closely, you'll see the royal's outfit is far from simple. To attend the FEDEPE Awards in Madrid, a ceremony that celebrates women entrepreneurs, Letizia chose a Carolina Herrera floral embroidered dress — yes, there's white floral embroidery all over the queen's outfit — proving, once again, that her stylish wardrobe should never be underestimated; she's all about those details, after all. To finish off her subtle look, Letizia chose a pair of white and gold flower earrings (she also loves a theme),

  • A stunning prediction of climate science — and basic physics — may now be coming true

    A lot of people deny climate change. Not many, though, deny gravity. That’s why a recent animation released by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory — well, it came out in April, but people seem to be noticing it now — is so striking. Because it suggests the likely gravitational imprint of our changing climate on key features of the Earth in a way that’s truly startling. The animation uses measurements from NASA’s squadron of GRACE satellites (Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment), which detect changes in mass below them as they fly over the Earth, to calculate how the ocean changed from April 2002 until July 2013, based on corresponding changes in the mass of the continents. The resulting animation

  • This Simple Bit Of Grocery Store Advice Will Spare You A Lifetime Of Regret

    I met a woman from Denmark last week. She's been living in the United States for about a year. I asked her what she liked best about our country. Her response (paraphrased as best as I remember) was immediate: "You're not going to believe it, but it's Stop & Shop. And all the grocery stores like it. In Denmark, we spend half of our weekend shopping for food. Bread from the baker. Meat from the butcher. Produce from the grocer. It's ridiculous. You Americans put it all under one roof. I can finish my shopping in less than an hour. It's an amazing innovation, but I still watch my American friends drive everywhere for their food. This at Whole Foods. That at Trader Joes.

    Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly's stunning silence amid Roger Ailes' sexual harassment scandal was the point at which the embattled CEO knew his storied career at the network he founded was over, ABC News reports. ABC News cited unnamed sources saying "The Kelly File" host was being pressured to pledge her support for Ailes after the July 6 filing of a sex harassment lawsuit by fired host Gretchen Carlson — as other top names at Fox News had done, including Greta Van Susteren, Bill O'Reilly and Maria Bartiromo. When she wouldn't go along, there was "a sense of doom" inside the "war room" that Ailes had assembled in his New Jersey home with advisers — including wife Beth, ABC News reports. "And what

  • Coroner refuses to release final autopsies in Pike County killings

    WAVERLY — Pike County Coroner Dr. David Kessler now has the final autopsy reports — which would include toxicology reports that would show potential drug use, and a host of other detailed information — in the homicides of the eight Rhoden family members who were shot to death in April. But authorities, including Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, in conflict with Ohio’s public record laws, refuse to release them. Kessler wrote in a news release this morning that legal counsel considers the autopsy reports "confidential law enforcement investigatory records,” and Kessler wrote that releasing them “might impede the criminal investigation or the families’ grieving process.” But Dennis Hetzel, executive

  • Sexy cosplayers can make $200,000 a year at comic book conventions

    Scores of attractive women made their way to Comic Con in San Diego, Calif. last week to don skimpy cosplay outfits to entertain the convention’s superhero fans. Many do it just for fun, but for some it’s a job that pays well into the six figures. “In addition to a per diem and travel costs, popular professional cosplayers can make at least $5,000 to $10,000 a show,” comic book expert Christian Beranek told FOX411. “If you add in mail order sales, crowd funding contributions and YouTube ad revenue, the top talents are pulling in close to $200,000 a year.” “Boy Meets World” actress Maitland Ward has become one of the most popular cosplay stars.

"We had a rough couple of years, because I married Greg Norman who was Andy's friend," she said.

  • Want to Beat the Heat While Generating Some? Try Emily Ratajkowski’s Summer Date-Night Style

    On a recent Sunday afternoon, when the temperatures hovered somewhere between agonizing and exhaustive, I received a telephone call from a potential summertime boo. He wanted to take a walk in his neighborhood, which sounded so lovely and romantic, but I realized that the T-shirt I was wearing was sticking to my chest in a pool of sweat. In fact even despite the fact that I was in the air-conditioned confines of my apartment, my whole body was overheating and the thought of getting dressed brought upon more beads of perspiration. Peeling the shirt off, I did what every woman in New York City stewing in this heat was no doubt doing right about then: forgoing layers in favor of the barely there.

  • Tom Wilhelmsen kicks all of the Pirates out of his bar after they refuse to pay tab

    Baseball, like all sports, is a team game. Baseball, like other sports, can sometimes be taken over by just one player who wills their squad to victory. For the Seattle Mariners, for so many years, that player was Felix Hernandez, who would put the team on his back and try and drag them kicking and screaming to a 1-0 victory. Saying Happy Felix Day doesn’t ring necessarily as loudly and as enthusiastically as it once used to. Don’t get me wrong, I still love seeing the King take the mound, but he is a different King this year. And from the get go of the game, it looked like he was going to be a bad king who needs to be overthrown. The Pirates jumped out to a quick and tidy three run lead in the

  • Why The Moon Should Never Be Terraformed

    Although a growing number of commercial and scientific concerns have big plans for the Moon, our achingly desolate nearest neighbor should never be terraformed into something earthlike. Instead, it should forever be preserved as testament to our solar system’s grand and mysterious past. While it only seems proper that it should be developed into the kind of permanent commercial, scientific and/or mining base of which Arthur C. Clarke used to dream, with each passing year, it becomes ever clearer that the Moon still has much to teach us about our inner solar system. Out of this collision, the Moon coalesced in Earth orbit, then suffered the slings and arrows of our inner solar system’s epoch of Late Heavy Bombardment.

  • Bill’s desperate bid to humanize Hillary shows fear she might lose

    Here’s a fact to chew on: Much of Day Two at the convention was spent trying to humanize Hillary Clinton. After 25 years in public life, she feels the need to tell us she cares. A parade of speakers warmed up the crowd by telling stories about her compassion, some of it very long ago. Getting money for New Yorkers after 9/11, helping children get health insurance, securing health care for veterans. This being a coronation, the circumstances grew in grandeur with each telling, until they made her sound like Mother Teresa. She’s so profoundly kind and tireless and honest and so full of grace, “she defies gravity.” But wait, there’s more — she’s tough, too. Single-handedly, she practically made
