John McCain won’t back Graham-Cassidy bill, likely ending GOP health care push
(CNN)Sen. John McCain announced Friday in a statement that he cannot "in good conscience" vote for the GOP's latest plan to overhaul Obamacare, likely ending Republicans' latest effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

19 Non-Negotiable Lessons You Owe It To Yourself To Learn In Your 20s
Jonathan Daniels 1. The “need to know what your life plan is” is a bunch of hot air. It’s okay. No really, listen. It’s like we are almost so afraid to die with our dreams and purpose still inside of us that we would almost rather die young, than arrive at 88 but be less than. Life is a series of days that we shove together and try to make a happy, fulfilling thing by the end. There are

Marea cable headed towards the oceanImage: microsoftMore than 17,000 feet below the ocean's surface, there now lies the "most technologically advanced subsea cable," providing up to 160 terabits (Tbps) of data per second — beating Google's alternative, now poorly named, "Faster." The cable is the handiwork of Facebook, Microsoft, and Spanish telecommunication company Telxius.  Construction on the cable, which stretches 4,000 miles from Virginia Beach, Virginia to Bilbao, Spain, began in August 2016. Microsoft announced its completion on Thursday,

Donald Trump Slams The Mayor Of San Juan, Puerto Rico After She Begs For Help To Reach The Island
Just more proof… It all started yesterday, when the Mayor — a woman named Carmen Yulín Cruz — literally begged for help for the island, noting that people were going to die if things didn't quickly get better in regards to the bungled federal government response for aid (below): He tweeted out this morning in response a string of vicious tweets — including those aimed at Mayor Cruz herself (below): The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary

The Toxic Attraction Between A Good Girl And A Complicated Bad-Boy
Gossip Girl “You have interesting taste in people.” I looked at them, rolling my eyes. “I know everyone thinks I date assholes.” And I do. Or did. But what people don’t know and I don’t care to explain to them is the people who seem most rough around the edges, the people who seem to not care about anything, the ones who have gotten almost too good at having a hard exterior are the ones who are worth the

Mensa Offers To Host An IQ Test With Tillerson And Trump
Earlier today, it was revealed that the President of the United States challenged his very own Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to an IQ test to prove who was the smartest of them all. If you thought that was strange, well things just took a turn for the surreal. As reported by The Hill, American Mensa – the US chapter of the high IQ society – said that they would “be happy to hold a testing session for President

Newly Developed HIV Treatment Can Fight 99 Percent Of All Strains

Newly Developed HIV Treatment Can Fight 99 Percent Of All Strains
In the continual struggle to effectively treat HIV, a disease that kills millions of people a year, researchers may have made an exciting breakthrough. In a new study, scientists report that they have developed a new type of antibody that could potentially treat, and even prevent HIV infection. One of the main reasons why HIV is so tricky to get on top of, a bit like the common flu virus, is that it is rapidly changing. Because of this

The event, which was put on by the Border Collie Owners of South Australia, was held in Willaston Oval. The group confirmed on its Facebook page that 576 collies attended the event (though we have to admit, we see some Australian shepherds in there, but we're not judging because

People Are Saying Kylie Is Kim Kardashian’s Surrogate, Here’s What We Know
As soon as it was announced that Kylie Jenner was reportedly pregnant with Travis Scott's baby, the internet was quite literally set on fire — which is coincidentally what Jenner said in her Instagram caption in her first picture post that featured Travis Scott. Well, she said, “It's lit,” but same thing, right? Now that we're all trying to slowly digest Kylie Jenner's reported pregnancy news at 5 p.m. on a Friday (the Kardashians never sleep, people!), the internet is

Donald Trump Proves  Again  That He Truly Is A World-Class Asshole
It's almost as if we should have known exactly what we were getting when we elected an emotionally-stunted, Cheeto-tinted whiny baby to the White House… Sometime in the last few hours, mad that the team didn't want to come to the White House to worship him like so many of his mindless followers, Trump just officially dis-invited star Steph Curry and the team, citing that they'd been so openly critical of him as President, and the Cheeto-in-Chief also included

My Boyfriend Was The I-24 Serial Killer, You Can Ask Me Anything
Ieva Urenceva I’m not one of those crazy women who write erotic love letters to Charlie Manson. I had no idea Tommy was anything other than a good guy when we met. He kept jumper cables in his trunk to help random people whose vehicles stalled and he had dinner at his parent’s house every Sunday night. He treated me with respect, never hit me, and he didn’t even like to be that rough in bed. We met we
