    The majority of murders in the U.S. occur in only a small percentage of counties across the country. The Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) said in a new report that there is a “geographical concentration” of murders, with 68 percent of killings occurring in just 5 percent of the nation’s counties. The homicides also tend to be concentrated to relatively small pockets of those counties, the report said.

    In March, several outlets gleefully reported that ESPN was near collapse as a network. Conveniently, several of these reports came from competitors to ESPN who hope to capitalize and gain market share. Nonetheless, it is true that ESPN will be cutting $100 million in salaries -- most from very recognizable on-air talent -- in a cost-cutting move to shore up their bottom line.

    Based on the results of this year's study, if all Medicare inpatients received the same level of care as those treated in the award-winning facilities: Nearly than 89,000 additional lives could be saved; Over 61,000 additional patients could be complication free; Over $5.6 billion in inpatient costs could be saved; The average patient stay would decrease by half a day; Over 300,000 fewer discharged patients would be readmitted within 30 days; Patients would spend nine minutes less in hospital emergency departments per visit. If the same standards were applied to all inpatient care, the impact would be even greater.

    • TripAdvisor has released its 2017 Travelers' Choice Awards, naming the 25 best beaches in the US. • Florida's Siesta Key Beach claims the title of America's best beach, followed by coastal stretches across the country in Hawaii, California, Georgia, and more. • TripAdvisor also found the cheapest month to visit each beach destination, and the average rate for a hotel room there. The world is full of gorgeous beaches, so it's easy to forget that the US has some spectacular beaches of its own — especially if you don't live along the coast.

    “Sales of Joy Villa’s music has skyrocketed after she wore a pro-Trump dress to the Grammy Awards,” CBS Pittsburgh (KDKA) reports. “On the red carpet Villa wore a gown of red, white and blue with the words ‘Make America Great Again’ on the front and ‘Trump’ on the back,” KDKA reports. “After her appearance at the Grammy’s the 25-year-old’s EP ‘I Make The Static‘ jumped to number one on Amazon’s top digital albums, and is still there Monday,” KDKA reports. “She was also climbing the charts on iTunes.”

    Last night when I saw and read about this 25 year old black girl who wore a PRO-TRUMP dress to the Grammy's, my mind began to wonder if she was a sincere fan. Then I saw the designer of the dress was a pro-Trump immigrant. So I went to Amazon and checked Joy Villa's album. "I Make the Static" was something like #2,300 on the charts. I decided to buy it. I was not alone. As of 6:30 am Central time, she is #1

    Super Bowl LI on Sunday night was as close to a politics-free experience as a football fan could have hoped for, with even halftime performer Lady Gaga eschewing political talk in favor of high-energy showmanship — but several big-name brands couldn’t help but include overt political messaging in their Big Game advertising.

    There’s no easy way to rate dog intelligence. As psychologist Stanley Coren wrote back in the 90s, there’s adaptive intelligence (i.e., figuring stuff out), working intelligence (i.e., following orders), and instinctive intelligence (i.e., innate talent) — not to mention spatial intelligence, kinesthetic intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, and more. Indeed, as animal behaviorist Frans de Waal has argued, humans tend to judge animal intelligence in limited and unfair terms and often bungle the experiment. While labs at Yale, Duke, and around the world are studying this question, for now we do at least have data on one metric: working intelligence. Coren, in...

    Donald Trump’s inauguration ratings were the second-highest in 36 years, according to Nielsen. The swearing-in of the 45th president was seen by 30.6 million viewers across 12 networks. The only inauguration over the last three decades that tops Trump’s number in the linear ratings? Barack Obama’s first inauguration back in 2009, which had a record-setting 37.8 million viewers. Before that, you’d have to go all the way back to Ronald Reagan in 1981, who was seen by 41.8 million viewers (Nielsen tracks inauguration ratings back to 1969). The numbers are all the more remarkable considering Trump is entering into office...

    DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) -- The gap between the super-rich and the poorest half of the global population is starker than previously thought, with just eight men, from Bill Gates to Michael Bloomberg, owning as much wealth as 3.6 billion people, according to an analysis by Oxfam released Monday. Presenting its findings on the dawn of the annual gathering of the global political and business elites in the Swiss ski resort of Davos, anti-poverty organization Oxfam says the gap between the very rich and poor is far greater than just a year ago. It's urging leaders to do more than pay...

    President Ronald Reagan once said, “The future does not belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave.” In that spirit, Newsmax has compiled a list of the brightest and bravest in the Grand Old Party under the age of 30. While a majority of these young people come from political backgrounds — including a few who even hold elected office — they all possess a great influence in promoting Republican values that belies their ages. Whether the influence of these 30 is demonstrated by becoming a viral sensation, by taking on the mantles of leadership, or by laying the...

    With the election of Donald Trump, Fox News has actually seen ratings grow since November 8. CNN and MSNBC, on the other hand, have watched viewership fall off sharply. “I believe Fox News’ prospects for 2017 to be very strong,” Fox News’ James Murdoch said at a conference this week, adding that ratings “are less down than we expected.” Murdoch also said CNN and MSNBC numbers have dropped “quite a bit more” than Fox’s, partly because they had risen so much more during the campaign. Over the years, the Fox News audience has been more loyal and less prone to...

"People are starting to get those e-mails and letters saying oh, by the way we're not going to be taking care of this anymore, because we basically don’t have to," she told her fellow co-hosts in a discussion about medical insurance. Come on, Whoopi, even if Trump does repeal Obamacare, it’s going to take months.   2. Sex Will Be Less Fun Back to Filipovic. In a CNN.com op-ed, the feminist writer claimed that “sex...

    Democrats grappling with the shock of Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump are also beginning to turn their attention to 2020, and pondering who could defeat Trump as he vies for reelection. Here are The Hill’s initial rankings of where the potential candidates stand. 1. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) How would the 2016 election have panned out had Warren challenged Clinton in the primary? That’s one of the great unknowables of Democratic politics. But now, there is little doubt that the Massachusetts senator is the leading contender for the 2020 nomination. Warren, a former Harvard Law School professor, has been...

    The losers are angry... If you were arranging publications based on their political content, any given issue of GQ Magazine would sit comfortably to the left of Marx & Engels. GQ is to sane political discourse what a pack of rabid pit bulls is to a steak. After all, this is the rag that keeps Keith Olbermann locked in a basement closet, where a food pellet drops each time he records one of his insane rants for YouTube. That means they have a nasty habit of letting the mask slip and sharing their insane feelings. In a year where the...
