  • Khloe Kardashian's Tiger Cub Pic Causes Another Selfie Controversy

    Khloe Kardashian just can't catch a break! After getting slammed for posting a pic of her wearing a niqab face covering during her trip to Dubai, Khloe also came under fire on Thursday when she posted a selfie of her cuddling with a tiger cub. PHOTOS: Stars Pose With Their Pets The image caused some uproar among those fighting for animal rights who felt the pic promoted the captivity of wild creatures. "We're disappointed to see yet another celebrity posing with a wild animal," Silia Smith of World Animal Protection told Daily Mail. "Tiger cubs belong in the wild, with their mothers -- not in captivity for use as entertainment or photo props." Khloe posed for pics with an array of animals, including snaps with a stingray and an orangutan, but it was the cub photo that seemed to anger activists the most. "Not slamming Khloe at all. I love her and her ethics. I hate the practice of animal exploitation and tourism," one commenter said of the image. "This is just disgusting," another Instagram user wrote. "And I was so disappointed to see you wearing fur in the last [ Keeping Up with the Kardashians] episode. I knew it was all marketing that your were 'against it' but still sad about it." WATCH: New Keeping Up With The Kardashians Preview Shows Terrifying Car Crash Footage "I thought you were against it? All for a photo op?" another comments reads. "Disgusting... You should be ashamed!!!" Meanwhile, Khloe's estranged husband Lamar Odom sent out his first tweet in nearly a year on Thursday. Sharing some artwork of himself on Instagram, the M.I.A. basketball pro wrote: "Appreciate the love." How do you feel about Khloe posing with a tiger cub?

  • The Worst Place to Propose to Your Girlfriend? A Wedding.

    With that in mind, the #1 rule at weddings that always abides, like female guest’s lives literally depended on it, is that they cannot wear a white dress. Only the bride can wear a white dress, because this is her day and everyone else is just there to celebrate her on the grand achievement in her life that is getting married. Like for example, telling a young man that proposing at someone else’s wedding is literally never, never-ever, ok.  Which is why the internet has totally lost its mind over this photo posted on Reddit yesterday, where a man proposes to his girlfriend right in front of a newlyweds’ table of honor. It is like seeing the birth of a supernova.  EMBED TWEET If you proposal at my wedding I will personal drag you out in my wedding dress.— Sassy Jazzy (@TheQueen0fSass) May 25, 2015 haahahahahahahaha LIVID!!!!

  • Chicago Bulls fire coach Tom Thibodeau after 5 seasons

    The Chicago Bulls fired Tom Thibodeau on Thursday, saying a change was needed from the strong-willed coach who took his team to the playoffs in each of his five seasons. Thibodeau went 255-139 with the Bulls, good for a .647 winning percentage that ranks seventh in NBA history among coaches with at least 200 games. Chicago advanced to the Eastern Conference finals that season, but it's the only time the Bulls have made it past the second round under Thibodeau, whose relationship with the front office was under constant scrutiny.

  • To see why Amtrak's losses mount, hop on the Empire Builder train

    By Ernest Scheyder ABOARD THE EMPIRE BUILDER (Reuters) - Its passengers are mostly silver-haired retirees, oil-field workers and a few young families gazing out the windows of Amtrak's least-profitable and third-longest line, rumbling from Chicago through eight states and on to the American West Coast. As the Empire Builder snakes along 2,230 miles (3,590 km) on a 46-hour journey, it offers insights into the financial problems plaguing America's passenger railroad at a time of intensifying scrutiny over its aging infrastructure and safety record. A coach ticket between Spokane, Washington and Williston, capital of North Dakota's oil boom, costs $111, much cheaper than flying.

  • Mystery of holes in Swiss cheese cracked after a century

    Eureka! After about a century of research, Swiss scientists have finally cracked the mystery of the holes in Swiss cheese. Experts from Agroscope, a state centre for agricultural research, said the phenomenon -- which marks famous Swiss cheeses such as Emmental and Appenzell -- was caused by tiny bits of hay present in the milk and not bacteria as previously thought. "It's the disappearance of the traditional bucket" used during milking that caused the difference, said Agroscope spokesman Regis Nyffeler, adding that bits of hay fell into it and then eventually caused the holes.

  • Man slapped with $120 ticket for using Apple Watch while driving

    BGR News

    As Google Glass has demonstrated, wearable computers give law enforcement officials all sorts of new justifications for handing out tickets to potentially distracted drivers. CTV News reports that Quebec resident Jeffrey Macesin has been slapped with a $120 fine after police noticed him using his Apple Watch while driving. Apparently, Macesin was using his Apple Watch to change the music he was playing in his car when police decided to pull him over. FROM EARLIER: Tests claim HTC One M9’s camera is worse than three-year-old iPhone 4S, Galaxy S III Quebec’s highway safety code states that “no person may, while driving a road vehicle, use a hand-held device that includes a telephone function,” although Macesin is arguing that this shouldn’t apply to a

  • NC Teacher Allegedly Caught Threatening Students in Secret Recording

    A North Carolina elementary school teacher was apparently captured threatening students in a secret recording, parents say. Leona Cain says her son Sammy had been trying to tell her for months that his teacher at Alderman Road Elementary School in Fayetteville was verbally abusive, but she says she didn’t believe him until she sent her 10-year-old boy to school with a recording device and heard it herself. "I don't even like somebody to be behind me when I'm on the board, because I might get mad and pop the mess out of you and then it would be my fault because you were standing behind me," the teacher – who has not been identified – could be heard yelling on the recording, sections of which were obtained by ABC station WTVD in Durham.
