Seldom is an action movie made that is as original, and as fun as John Wick.
This week there are only two major releases, but I think one of them is among the years best.
I have to chuckle a little about what I have heard today in the media, and especially on social media about the state of the Browns win yesterday. Yeah, it was ugly but who cares in the NFL. A win is a win. The sentiment is that it wasn't good enough - and that's laughable.
According to a new study, Americans are big, fat, gullible dummies.
Researchers from the University of Michigan found that the eating habits of people are manipulated in a big way by marketing, advertising and fashion industries.
We go by what labels tell us instead of what our bodies tell us. Also, if we believe we are eating “light” because of a package, we actually feel as if we didn't eat as much – which leads us to eat more later, making us gain even more weight.
Consumers are also manipulated by “vanity sizing” in the clothing industry. What used to be a size 8 in the 1950s became a size 4 in the 1970s and a zero in 2006.
This leads us to think we are a much smaller size than we really are.
