Several Twitter feeds run by the Financial Times were also plastered with similar slogans. The FT later said its blogs and social media accounts had been compromised ...

(Credit: James Martin/CNET) Congress is a dog that won't go for a walk. We can tug at its leash as hard as we want, but it sits in the middle of the sidewalk, barking a defiant "no." It's not a purposeful no. It's just a refusal for the sake of it, couched in principle. Then along comes America's most ambitious politician. No, it's not Paul Ryan or ...
(Credit: Twitter/YouTube Screenshot by Chris Matyszczyk/CNET) Life becomes more meaningful when someone from a long way away reflects your own thoughts.

Color of Night
"Color of Night" is one of those movies where nobody acts even vaguely like a real person would. There is rarely if ever a moment when a characters says something, reacts to another character, or responds to a particular situation in the manner that an actual human being would. The movie is striving with undignified, undisciplined passion to be a kinky psychosexual thriller, ... ...

Nothing will ever completely replace playing the game I love, however I feel like I'm starting a new adventure and I'm genuinely excited about what lies ahead. I'm fortunate to have been given many opportunities throughout my career and now I feel it's my time to give back.

Tuscaloosa TimesTuscaloosa Times | Tuscaloosa & International News Updates
The Tuscaloosa Times is essentially a local Tuscaloosa newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for Tuscaloosa, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets.
The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy.
We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding
of the news we deliver.
Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news.
We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the Tuscaloosa Times.
University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) exercise and nutrition experts have offered tips for those in search of a summer slim down.
EatRight by UAB Weight Management Services Clinical Dietitian Lindsey Lee R.D., said nutrition is necessary to support weight loss efforts.

"If you restrict calories too much, you could start to feel burn out," Lee stated.
To bolster the burn, Lee suggested: Fill up on lower calorie fruits and vegetables, choose water over high calorie sodas and decrease high calorie, high fat options.
The expert suggests switching up food preparation: Instead of steaming vegetables, grill them or toss unique vegetables like skewered okra or fresh asparagus on the grill.
"The one important thing to remember is to limit the fat source you use. Try different herbs and spices to season your veggies instead of heavy amounts of olive oil, canola oil, or butter," Lee said.
Restaurant meals can be deceptive and pose a special challenge to healthy eating.
"Even meals you think are healthy in restaurants are loaded with calories because of cooking methods that add a lot of fat and sodium, so ask to have foods prepared as light as possible to avoid extra calories," Lee suggested. ...
