  • Ben Affleck DENIES Rumours That Jennifer Garner Split Was Because Of Margot Robbie

    Ben Affleck has worked with many absolutely gorgeous women throughout his career, but of course the fact that he just so happened to be starring in a film alongside the stunning Margot Robbie at around the same time as he and Jennifer Garner announced their split lead to some speculation that Margot was the reason. Anyways, unsurprisingly, Ben’s camp has wasted no time in denying the vicious rumour, clearing Margot’s name of any wrongdoing as she is still very happy with her own long term boyfriend, Tom Ackerley.

  • Confederate flag protest in South Carolina (35 photos)

    The depth of support for bringing down the Confederate flag gets its first test in the South Carolina Legislature this week as lawmakers return to Columbia to come up with a specific plan. The General Assembly returns Monday to discuss Gov. Nikki Haley's budget vetoes and what to do with the rebel flag that has flown over some part of the Statehouse for more than 50 years. Several bills have been filed, but details such as when to bring down the flag, whether to put another flag in its place and what kind of ceremony should mark the removal are not specified. And if South Carolina takes any lesson from the 2000 debate that brought the Confederate flag off the Statehouse dome to its current location at a nearby monument to Confederate soldiers, it is that minor details can trip things up.

    It was a concern I'd first heard in late 2014, shortly after Russia's covert invasion of eastern Ukraine and its military harassment of neighboring NATO member states, which the United States is treaty-bound to defend. How World War III became possible A nuclear conflict with Russia is likelier than you think. As I spoke to analysts and policymakers, I found a growing and increasingly alarmed community, in the US and Western Europe as well as in Russia, warning that war has once again become a real possibility.

    The decision comes immediately after Pierre-Paul was reportedly involved in an fireworks accident over the Fourth of the July weekend that left him with serious hand injuries. The report states that it was unlikely that Pierre-Paul was going to accept the deal, even before the accident, but the withdrawal is seen as a sign that the Giants are willing to let JPP play the 2015 season at his franchise-tag price of $14.8 million before reevaluating him at the end of the year.

But while it might look as though they were using the vantage point to seek out prey, photographer Bobby-Jo Clow from Dubbo, Australia, revealed the laid back pride were actually trying to escape flies living in the long grass. Bobby-Jo, 32, said: I was leading a photographic safari in the Serengeti and on our first official day in the park we came across this incredible sighting.

  • Mercedes-Benz Is Tops In Shopper Satisfaction, But Tesla? Not So Much

    Today's auto market is a tough one for consumers. There are loads of great cars on the lots, and the differences between those from Toyota, Ford, Volkswagen, and most other mass-market automakers are disappearing. ALSO SEE: Toyota RAV4 Vs. Ford Escape: Compare Cars In that kind of environment, customer service is king. The way sales personnel treat shoppers can make or break a dealership. That's why studies like the Prospect Satisfaction Index (PSI) from research firm Pied Piper are so important -- and telling. For the 2015 PSI, Pied Piper sent some 6,370 mystery shoppers to dealerships across the U.S. between July 2014 and June 2015. Those shoppers -- "prospects" in marketing lingo -- then rated the dealerships they visited on more than 50 criteria, including whether they offered customers a test drive, whether they asked how customers planned to use their vehicles, and whether they provided printed materials for shoppers to take home. CHECK OUT: Want A Chevrolet Bolt? You May Be Able To Get One Sooner Than You Thought When all the dust had settled and the scores were tabulated, the average score for all brands ticked up from 100 to 101 -- though as Pied Piper notes, even the top-scoring companies had individual dealerships that performed poorly, and low-scoring companies had dealerships that aced the test. On the whole, though, Mercedes-Benz outpaced the competition, with a score of 112. Infiniti, Lexus, MINI, and Toyota rounded out the top five, boasting scores in the 105 to 110 range. With the exception of MINI, most of those -- along with BMW, Volkswagen, Honda, and Cadillac -- have scored above the industry average for the past five years. And MINI could be en route to keeping its position at the top, since it posted one of the biggest year-over-year improvements, climbing six points from 2014. BMW, Lexus, Chrysler, Dodge, Lincoln, and Ram moved up, too, each edging up three or four points. READ: 2015 Honda CR-V Touring: Quick Drive At the other end of the scale, we find Tesla, with a very low score of 87. In its defense, however, Tesla is hamstrung by the many restrictions it faces on the sales front. Because of strict franchise laws, the automaker is still prohibited from actively selling cars in many of its showrooms; it can only share information and refer shoppers to the Tesla website for pricing and such. Until that changes -- and it is, slowly -- the cards will be stacked against Tesla in surveys like the PSI because it doesn't always operate full-service dealerships. The other four brands in Pied Piper's bottom five, however, have no such excuses. Mitsubishi, Volvo, Land Rover, and Jeep all scored between 92 and 95 points on the PSI. Smart, Jaguar, and Cadillac could be joining them in the lower depths before long, since they posted the biggest year-over-year declines in their scores. Smart and Volvo tied for biggest missteps, both tumbling five points. You can see how your favorite auto brand stacked up on the 2015 Prospect Satisfaction Index -- just have a look at Pied Piper's chart, embedded above.  ___________________________________________ Follow The Car Connection on Facebook, Twitter and Google+.
