    Is it ever okay to snoop on your partner?

    Here’s a scenario to consider: Your partner leaves his cell phone on the dining room table. His texts and emails can be easily accessed with just the touch of a fingertip. Would you look? Have you ever looked? If you said yes, you are definitely not alone.

    Man stolen as baby reunites with mother 41 years later

    SANTIAGO, Chile — It was a hug kept on hold for more than 41 years. The hug of a mother and son whose lives were abruptly separated four decades ago. Nelly Reyes had been waiting for hours in the international arrivals lounge at Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport in Santiago, holding a hand-made red poster board sign that said “Lovingly waiting for Travis, your mother Nelly and family.” A granddaughter in her early 20s and a 10-year-old grandson keep her […]

    Duggars’ ’19 Kids and Counting’ hangs in balance amid calls to cancel

    Will the show go on? That is the question surrounding TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” after claims that Josh Duggar molested girls as a teenager. The network pulled repeats of the show off the air Friday even as support emerged for the Duggar clan, including from former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. But there is a movement afoot to persuade TLC to cancel the show. Several petitions on Change.org call for the cancellation of the TV series about the devout Duggar […]

But just last week, they received the most unwelcoming letter in the mail: “Attn: African-American family,” the letter said in all caps. “Lindenhurst is 84% white population. You don’t belong here!!!” It’s almost laughable, if it weren’t so painful. “Sooooo, I’m checking my mail and when I come across this I can’t help but laugh … wait, it’s not funny […]

    Rivers still flooded in Texas and Oklahoma; 3 dead after record rains

    A day after record-setting rains left three people dead and washed away hundreds of homes in Texas and Oklahoma, the heavens are easing up. But that doesn’t mean the threat is gone. The torrents that those storms dumped are still too much for river and creek banks to contain, and runoff was still peaking early Monday, threatening continued flooding, the National Weather Service warned. On top of that, rain relief is not coming to everyone. Forecasters warned that with the […]
