It doesn't take a tabloid hound to be in on the celebrity gossip these days. There has been a load of discourse in the recent weeks on the split between Jada Pinkett and Will Smith, on accounts of the former's "theft" of Marc Anthony, with headlines like "Jada steals J Lo's Man!"
Whether or not this information is factual is still under speculation, but regardless of the unbeknownst facts, must publications such as Life&Style, and UsWeekly, subvert ... Read More

An upcoming children’s book by author Paul Kramer has come under scrutiny for its message.

She then goes on to lose weight and become the star of the soccer team in a Cinderella-like transformation. The ... Read More

It always blows my mind to hear the close-minded reasons that the best books are banned. Whenever I hear about a book being banned, I’m also instantly curious about it and think it must be worth reading. It’s funny how book banning can have that effect. However I also like to think that this isn’t happening in US high schools anymore, and that they’re working to incorporate more diversity into their English ... Read More

Ima gotta admit–I think the world was a better place before this series of books and movies came out. OK, maybe I should limit it to the movies since I haven't read the books, and obviously that means just the first two since the hornet one is yet to arrive on our shores, but I can't imagine how augmenting my knowledge of this trilogy would change my mind. I was going to hold off on passing judgment until the third one came out, but with the the ABC News ... Read More

Toni Stone is one hell of a woman. She's also one of the best baseball players you've never heard of. Since women's leagues refused her eligibility due to the color of her skin, Stone ended up playing alongside men in the Negro League. She became the first woman to play professionally in the league against big-shots like Ernie Banks, Willie Mays, Buck O’Neil, and Satchel Paige. Today she's often referred to as 'the female Jackie Robinson'.
