True, I’ve had problems with my new Nikon; it has dust in the lens and will be taking a trip to Japan soon.
However the blurriness of this image is no reflection on the camera—it’s a reflection on the lid of a Dumpster.
Special thanks to the Fairview Chamber of “Merch” and the elves they dispatch to hand-polish the Dumpsters.
Language often tells a story—and perhaps no more so than in the world of police media relations.
Words like home invasion, targeted, and person of interest are laden with meaning.
If it's a targeted attack, it's a way of reassuring the public that they don't have to fear that this will happen to them.
A person of interest may not always be a suspect, but it's a nifty way for police to highlight someone who's wanted without facing the wrath of their lawyer afterward.
The term home invasion conveys something far more gruesome and violent than a standard break-and-enter, though the words "home invasion" do not appear in the Criminal Code of Canada.
The anticlerical feminist group Femen has caused a ruckus in San Juan, Argentina, by mocking Rosary-praying men outside a Catholic cathedral.
Topless women involved in the pro-choice protest used markers to paint Hitler-style mustaches on the men's faces.
The feminists also draped panties over the head of one of the Catholic men. (See video below.)
The anti-abortion website lifesitenews.com has claimed that some women chanted: "To the Roman Catholic Apostolic Church, who wants to get between our sheets, we say that we want to be whores, travesties, and lesbians. Legal abortion in every hospital.”
Live Nation has announced that Seattle-based indie-rock group Band of Horses will play a show at the Vogue Theatre on Monday, February 17, 2014, in support of its upcoming live album, Acoustic at The Ryman.
Acoustic at The Ryman, set for a February 11 release, will contain ten acoustic renditions of songs from across the Band of Horses catalog, recorded at Nashville's legendary Ryman Auditorium over two nights in April 2013.
The Roof at Black + Blue opened in April, nearly 18 months after the ritzy dining room below it had launched and just in time for summer. While the city’s largest rooftop restaurant patio has been popular during warmer months, owner Glowbal Collection has found a way to cozy the space up for winter.
At a media preview of the Roof’s brunch, which has actually been running Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. for a few months, the Roof looked festive and inviting. Christmas décor was illuminated by a cozy fire, and canopy tents enclosed the space—making it warm enough to comfortably wear just a T-shirt.

The French government has filed preliminary charges against Bob Dylan after comments in a 2012 Rolling Stone interview upset the country’s Croatian community.
"If you got a slave master or Klan in your blood, blacks can sense that," Dylan said. "That stuff lingers to this day. Just like Jews can sense Nazi blood and the Serbs can sense Croatian blood."
A complaint was subsequently lodged against Dylan and Rolling Stone's French publisher by the Representative Council of the Croatian Community and Institutions. “You cannot equate Croatian [war] criminals with all Croats," said the group’s secretary general, Vlatko Maric.
Every December, many people turn their attention to helping the homeless and hungry people they ignore the rest of the year.
However, it’s not just our fellow humans who could use our support. Many animals—of the nonhuman variety—are vulnerable and suffering, and could benefit from our assistance at this time of year.
Here’s 10 ways that you can help the animals this holiday season.
