Why CNN’s Jim Acosta titled his new book ‘The Enemy of the People’

On Sunday’s “Reliable Sources,” I asked Acosta — a top recipient of criticism from Trump fans — about his reason for writing it. “I wanted to send a message to folks who really care about what we do, and the message is basically this: I did not want my children to grow up in a country where the press is called ‘the enemy of the people,’” Acosta said.

Gwyneth Paltrow Doesn’t Live With Her Husband, And We’re All For It Betches

reports, “Interestingly, she and [her husband] don’t live together yet, though he is close by. He sleeps at his own house when his children, Brody and Isabella, stay; on the other four nights he’s chez Paltrow.” So why don’t the lovebirds—she the founder of the lifestyle brand exclusively targeted at the .03% and he the co-creator of TV’s most terrifying shows, and —live together?

But contrary to my theory, Gwyneth has no shame in revealing the real reason and I have to say, I’m about it.  . I think the reason Gwenyth’s admission …

Darwins Finches Struggle To Woo Females With Song Thanks To Beak-Deforming Parasite

Parasites are nasty little bastards. The freeloaders survive by siphoning off the vital nutrients our bodies depend on, making us feel tired and sick. But, bizarrely, they can also impact sex.

Now, a study published in the Proceeding of the Royal Society B has looked at the phenomenon in the Galapagos finches made famous by Darwin, finding that males infected with parasitic fly larvae sing the songs they use to woo females out of tune, which impacts their chances of mating. Philornis downsi is a species of fly that …
