"Actors and Actresses: What Hollywood stars have a reputation for being difficult to work with?"


I think you may have to register to view it. Lindsey Lohan (no surprise) and Bill Murray get mentioned, amongst others.

Forget selfies -- make way for 'dronies'

(CNN) -- Forget selfies. Those are so 2013.

Make way, instead, for a new way so show your handsome, or lovely, mug to the Internet -- a budding Web movement that combines high-tech geekery with the human desire to be seen.

Call them "dronies."

As personal drones find their way into more and more hands, folks have begun using the personal, unmanned aircraft, kitted out with video cameras, to add a little flare to the Internet's ubiquitous "look at me" self-shots.


Rare Amazon Jungle Dog Caught on Video (video at link of course)


One of the Amazon rain forest's most elusive inhabitants, the short-eared dog, has been caught on video.

About the size of a fox, these jungle canines are incredibly difficult to spot. In fact, a journey to the Amazon is far more likely to yield a jaguar sighting than a glimpse of a wild short-eared dog.

"They are rare and hard to see," says veterinarian and ecologist Renata Leite Pitman, a researcher at Duke University and National Geographic grantee. She's been studying short-eared dogs, which only live in the Amazon basin, for 14 years. In that time, she's managed to capture and affix tracking collars to only five of the animals.

"They are very timid, totally different from pets," Leite Pitman says. And their dark coloring helps them blend in with the rain forest underbrush and avoid predators.

U.K. investigates Facebook news feed experiment


SAN FRANCISCO -- British regulators are investigating a psychological experiment Facebook conducted on 700,000 unsuspecting users.

The regulators are working with data protection authorities in Ireland, headquarters of Facebook's European operations.

They want to know if any British citizens were subjects in the controversial experiment. They are also probing whether the data gathered in the experiment maintained the anonymity of users.

The Facebook experiment was conducted for one week in 2012. It manipulated the content users saw in their news feeds to see if emotions could be spread. Some users saw positive updates from friends, others saw negative updates.

North Carolina DU'ers, are you prepared for Arthur ?

The present storm track models seem to estimate it will give you the most trouble out of all states. Best wishes !
