A bunch of awards were already given out—including an Emmy for Pickle Rick, but none for Megan—at last weekend’s Creative Arts Emmys, but tonight was the big show in Hollywood. The stars walked the red carpet with their spouses and friends—or, in the case of Best Actress in a Drama nominee Sandra Oh, their parents—and the gifting suite gaveaway loads of expensive luggage, Halo Top ice cream,...View more »

In November, President Donald Trump’s administration released declassified FBI documents on President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. But the release also included a batch of Martin Luther King Jr. documents filled with allegations of “abnormal” sexual behavior and of being a “slow thinker” and a “Marxist” (pdf).
The Root spoke with Clayborne Carson, the Martin Luther King Jr. Centennial...View more »
I love the current generation of Range Rover quite a lot. However, from a purely aesthetic standpoint, I have a slight preference towards the facelifted 2010-2012 L322 Rover, with its boxy upright styling. It’s just a tiny bit more rugged and dignified. Fortunately, at least one dealer is doing me the courtesy of holding onto a brand new 2012 Range Rover HSE, with just 32 original miles. I...View more »
In Dark Horse’s Incognegro: Renaissance, Zane Pinchback—a young black journalist and New York transplant by way of Tupelo, Mississippi—finds himself smack dab in the middle of Harlem at the height of its Renaissance during the 1920s.

It’s temping to look back on the first season of Lodge 49, armed with what we now know about the lodge and Harwood Fritz Merrill and the toxic seepage at Orbis, to see which of our theories bear out. Because, as viewers, we think we have a clearer understanding of...View more »

This past winter’s flu season was quickly recognized as one of the worst to come along in a long time. But new data from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention highlights just destructive it was in the United States. According to new data, there were 80,000 flu-related deaths last season, the single highest toll seen in at least four decades.
Across the board, the 2017-2018 flu season...View more »
On Monday a woman filed a lawsuit against R. Kelly in Supreme Court in New York, alleging that the singer sexually assaulted her, infected her with herpes and locked her in rooms to punish her for failing to please him.
Faith Rodgers, 20, said that she met the singer in 2017 and he promised to help her with a music career. But instead, she said, she was abused “mentally, sexually and...View more »
The excitement around NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft arriving at its latest target, an oddly shaped object called (486958) 2014 MU69, has dredged up a fact that often goes unstated—the object’s nickname, “Ultima Thule,” carries links to Nazism.

Anyways, I’m not sure if anyone remembers or even knew these clip on monster trucks existed... I forgot what they were called but what I do vaguely remember was they came in a two pack along with two other Hotwheels. Simply snap on your favorite Hotwheels and call it a monster truck :)
Australia is on track to eliminate cervical cancer, according to a new report, while here in America we’re still dragging our feet on the HPV vaccine in case it makes teens horny, or whatever.
The New York Times covered the new study in the journal The Lancet Public Health; it found that“fewer than four women in every 100,000 could be diagnosed with cervical cancer annually in Australia —...View more »
Salt has its uses: It flavors food, keeps us from dying of a sodium deficiency (rare but real), and, well, that’s about it. And that’s true whether the salt is white or pink.
Oh but pink salt comes from the Himalayas. That sure sounds exotic, but it’s not like it’s better just because it comes from somewhere far away. Look, if you think salt lamps are pretty, feel free to enjoy that. If you...View more »
