    Pop star Miley Cyrus is under a criminal investigation for desecrating the Mexican flag on stage in Monterrey on September 16, 2014, which is Mexican Independence Day. While most people in Mexico were celebrating Diez y Seis de Septiembre, Miley Cyrus was twerking on stage in Monterrey with dancers whipping and rubbing Mexican flags on her butt. To some of the pop stars' fans, it was just "Miley being Miley," but to Mexican officials in Nuevo Leon, it could be a violation of the country's constitution, which protects "national emblems, the flag and the national anthem." Cyrus, known for her...

    San Francisco drag queens are sparring with Facebook over its policy requiring people to use their real names, rather than drag names such as Pollo Del Mar and Heklina. But the world's biggest social network is not budging from its rules. In recent weeks, Facebook has been deleting the profiles of self-described drag queens and other performers who use stage names because they did not comply with the social networking site's requirement that users go by their "real names" on the site. On Wednesday, Facebook declined to change its policy after meeting with drag queens and a member of the...

    Scientists now believe that global warming is to blame for extreme cold snaps in North America during the winter months – and that it will only keep happening. The "polar vortex" that plunged Canada and the U.S. into historical cold last winter is said by researchers to have occurred because melting polar ice changes weather patterns, according to a study published earlier this month.

    ATLANTA — This is one shot even the great Rory McIlroy had no chance to hit. His golf ball landed in a spectator’s pocket. McIlroy’s tee shot on the 14th hole of the Tour Championship on Friday drifted to the right, clattered into a tree and dropped straight down. A dozen or so fans tried to figure out where it was before one man realized it was in the front right pocket of his shorts. The world’s No. 1 player was entitled to a free drop under Rule 19-1-a - “Ball in motion stopped or deflected by an outside agency”...

    Lauren Squires, a sociolinguistic professor at OSU, is distressed by the success of the "Word Crimes" parody from Weird Al Yankovic. Professor Squires tut-tutted, “Many linguists are shaking their heads and feeling a little hopeless about what the public enthusiasm about it represents: a society where largely trivial, largely arbitrary standards of linguistic correctness are heavily privileged, and people feel justified in attacking those who don’t do things the ‘correct’ way.” In his highly entertaining video, Weird Al does not hesitate to insult people who use bad grammar. The professor thinks that Weird Al’s attitude “raises deep and long-standing questions...

    The College Football Czar: Week 3 Week two in review: The Delta House defense has won, as the NCAA has ended the Penn State bowl ban after two seasons. So it’s official, then. A four-year postseason ban is too severe a punishment for knowingly allowing a child-rapist to operate on campus for a decade after his acts are made known to campus police. A good argument can be made that because all parties involved in the scandal have departed, it makes no sense to continue to punish those who are there today. In hindsight, the program really should have been...

Among the courses: The Trump National Golf Club, the Winged Foot and Willow Ridge, NBC 4 New York reported. The courses would have had to shut down to accommodate the president and his entourage — including Secret Service — during one of their busiest holiday weekends.
