Is Britney Spears Being Forcibly Held In A Mental Facility? Betches

Just when you thought you might make it out of Aries without another massive scam blowing up, you thought wrong. A Britney Spears fan Instagram account and podcast called Britney’s Gram has exposed some very disturbing news about Britney’s conservatorship. Apparently, Britney has been forcibly held in a mental facility (!) since mid-January (!!) by her very own father (!!!). As everyone knows, Britney has been held in conservatorship by her father Jamie Spears since her breakdown in 2008. I think we all remember it. Now, suddenly the #FreeBritney movement is going viral by a hot pink square on Instagram — the true mark of any modern day scam worth its 15 minutes. But behind the pink square is a story …

China’s economy had a steady start to 2019

Hong Kong (CNN Business)China’s economy could be showing renewed signs of life in 2019. Chinese government statistics showed that growth in the first three months of the year was supported by strong manufacturing production and greater spending by Chinese consumers. While China’s current economic growth rate is still its slowest in decades, there have been signs of positivity in recent weeks, with indicators including property prices and bank lending suggesting a more bullish hue. Analysts said that investors will now turn to the possibility of an agreement on trade issues between the United States and China in the coming weeks. Investors’ “risk appetite should improve as China’s economic downturn risk is contained,” Hui added. Stimulus starts to bear fruit Chinese …

Pornhub is offering a sexy new way to save the bees this Earth Day.

As part of their new “Beesexual” campaign, the online porn company is tapping into Beerotica. Yes, you read that right.

As part of their aptly named “Beesexual” campaign, a partnership with French advertising agency BETC, the sex video purveyor is attempting to educate people about the threatened population using something they know their patrons visit them for — sex appeal. I know, I know, it sounds super weird, but let us explain. While we weren’t aware that bee-porn was actually a thing, Pornhub has created a whole …

Dozens Of Colorado Schools Close As FBI Seeks Woman ‘Infatuated With Columbine’

mass shooting at Columbine High School.

Scientists Restore Partial Function To Dead Pigs’ Brains Four Hours After Death

The lead up to Easter is an appropriate enough time to be bringing things back from the dead, made perfect by the last season of Game of Thrones. It’s presumably a coincidence that the middle of this auspicious period is when a team of scientists announced they have restored partial cellular functioning in the brains of pigs that had been dead for several hours, but it works for us. Today zombie bacon, tomorrow Jon Snow. Even a brief period without the flow of oxygen-bearing blood in the brain starts a cascade that leads to the death of cells. If the affected areas are large enough, and the interruption long enough, the damage is permanent. However, neuroscientists are divided over how quickly …

Our daughter’s anxiety disorder went undiagnosed for years. Here’s what I wish we’d known.

We knew something wasn’t right with our daughter. We just didn’t know what was wrong. As a parent, it can be hard to determine when a child’s behaviors fall into “weird but normal” and when something is truly “off.” Kids go through phases. They struggle as they figure out their changing minds and emotions. They get nervous or needy for a spell, and then they’re okay. But sometimes they’re not okay. Sometimes a phase lasts too long to be a phase, and you have to dig to discover what’s really going on. Our oldest daughter had always had some intermittent nervousness, but nothing extraordinary. As she entered the teen years, she seemed to be more anxious more often, but we …

30 Hilarious Then And Now Memes That Will Make You Feel Old

So when somebody asks if I’m “feeling old yet,” I don’t see it as a bad thing. These memes, that have been going around for a few years themselves by now, take a tongue-in-cheek look at aging by comparing your childhood heroes with imagined versions of how they look now. Some are hilariously creative, like the melted Ice Cube, while others are astonishingly believable lookalikes. Who knew that Alice Cooper looks remarkably like an older, cooler Steve Carell? Do you fear getting old? For the first time in history, most people on the planet can expect to live beyond 60 years old. With many Western countries especially having ageing populations, it looks like the future is grey! Unfortunately, while some …

George Mason University Doesn’t Care That Its Students Oppose Brett Kavanaugh’s Hire

FAIRFAX, Va. ― Brett Kavanaugh for a teaching gig. But too bad. “Even if the outcome is painful, what’s at stake is very, very important for the integrity of the university,” Cabrera said to audible gasps from students in the audience during a two-hour town hall on Kavanaugh’s hire and sexual violence in general on campus. “Oh, my God,” one female student said aloud. “Why?” asked another, to no one in particular. GMU’s student government organized the event, along with student group Mason for Survivors, after the school gave Kavanaugh a three-year contract to teach a summer course at its England campus. The town hall comes after protests, an ad campaign opposing Kavanaugh’s hire. He was confirmed to the Supreme …

Biden 2020 Run Would Cast Him As Extension Of Obama Presidency

The former vice president has begun testing the approach as he nears an expected campaign launch later this month. After remarks at a recent labor union event, Biden said he was proud to be an “Obama-Biden Democrat,” coining a term that his advisers define as pragmatic and progressive, and a bridge between the working-class white voters who have long had an affinity for Biden and the younger, more diverse voters who backed Obama in historic numbers. Though Obama remains overwhelmingly popular among Democrats, an undercurrent of the party’s primary contest is the push from some liberal Democrats to go far further than his administration in upending the federal health care system or addressing income inequality. Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont …
