'Big Bang' tops 'Thrones' in ratings race of fading shows

"The Big Bang Theory" edged out "Game of Thrones" as the two beloved TV behemoths again topped the ratings as they approach their finales. CBS' "The Big Bang Theory" drew 12.6 million live viewers last week, while HBO's "Game of Thrones" had 12.5 million. It was the second week in a row atop the ratings for the sitcom, whose 12-season run ends May 16. But with HBO available in far fewer homes, the week was still a win for "Game of Thrones," which continues to break its own viewership records. The series' penultimate episode had 18.4 million viewers if reruns...

Americans think fake news is big problem, blame politicians

Half of U.S. adults consider fake news a major problem, and they mostly blame politicians and activists for it, according to a new survey. A majority also believe journalists have the responsibility for fixing it. Differences in political affiliation are a major factor in how people think about fake news, as Republicans are more likely than Democrats to also blame journalists for the problem. The question of how to deal with made-up or misleading stories has embroiled politicians, civil-rights organizations and tech companies in the aftermath of misinformation campaigns by Russians and others aimed at undermining democratic institutions in the...

After his death, friends work to keep Avicii's legacy alive

Avicii was so invested and excited about his new album that even on his flight to Oman, where he later died, he was communicating with his producers about different sounds and melodies he wanted to include, and guest artists they should reach out to about collaborating. The Swedish DJ-producer died on April 20, 2018, and months after his family asked Avicii's musical team to complete the unfinished album. For production duo Vargas & Logola, that wasn't so easy. "It was hard to just even open the computer and work on the songs," said Salem Al Fakir, who goes by Logola....

6 tips to keep your parked car cool and to deal with a hot one

6 tips to keep your parked car cool and to deal with a hot one Studies have shown that temperatures inside a car parked under direct sun can shoot up dangerously, by up to 40-degrees Celsius in a matter of minutes. This means if the outside temperature is 47 degrees, heat inside a closed car’s cabin can reach 87 degrees to 90 degrees Celsius. Apart from burning your hands, back and derriere, this spike in temperature is also known to release chemicals like Benzene from the plastics inside a car, which could even lead to cancer. So, here are a...

Pilsner to pizzazz: Czechs’ evolving beer palette

Prague: For generations, Czechs have consumed world-beating volumes of beer in the smoky, wood-panelled rooms of their local pubs, all but indistinguishable from each other bar the brand of lager flowing from the taps. But tastes are changing. Czechs are increasingly shunning fusty old watering holes and draft beer sales are sliding, so the world-famous brewers of pilsner are looking to inject some pizzazz into the traditional pub and attract younger patrons looking for a hip, modern feel. “I don’t remember the last time I was in a traditional Czech pub,” said Marcel, a 35-year-old IT worker sipping a beer...

Britain, Polynesia discuss ancient stone monolith

London: A team from the British Museum arrived Tuesday on Easter Island to meet with local Polynesian people seeking the return from London of one of the most spiritually important of the Chilean island's stone monoliths. Gaye Sculthorpe, curator of the museum's Oceania section, and Lissant Bolton, an anthropologist specialising in the Pacific region, travelled to the South Pacific island 3,700 kilometers (2,300 miles) from the coast of Chile. Its greatest tourist attractions are statues known as moai, which were sculpted from basalt more than 1,000 years ago. The British Museum has held one of them, called the Hoa Hakananai'a,...
