    Brad Pitt joins Zach Galifianakis for another hilariously awkward ‘Between Two Ferns’

    Just another big name for Zach Galifianakis and his comic Web series, “Between Two Ferns.” In March, the actor and comedian had on President Barack Obama. Thursday, the guest was Brad Pitt. In classic “Between Two Ferns” style — that is, the style of an early-’80s public access show — Galifianakis made Pitt awkward from the beginning. The “Fury” actor was introduced as “Bradley Pitts” (and ID’ed as “Bart Pit” from “12 Years a Salve”) and immediately asked how old […]

    77 Sears, Kmart stores closing, 5300 jobs cut, all before Christmas: Report

    Sears is closing 77 Sears and Kmart stores and cutting 5,300 jobs. And that’s not even the worst news. The fact that most of these stores will close before Christmas is akin to raising a white flag, since holiday sales are the lynchpin for any retailer’s entire year. “They’re not giving anybody confidence that they’re going to be around long-term,” said Allan Ellinger is senior managing partner at MMG Advisors, an investment bank that specializes in fashion and retailing. “It’s […]

And her name is Sweetie. “My name is Sweetie,” she says, introducing herself. “I’m 10-years-old, I live in the Philippines. Every day, I have to sit in front of the webcam and talk to men. As soon as I go online, they come to me. Ten, 100, every hour. So many.” Men from all over the world — three, four, five […]

American officials are searching databases and communications for any links to American-based jihadists, law enforcement officials said. They spoke the same day Canadian lawmakers returned to work after the shootings, giving a standing ovation to the ceremonial Parliament official credited with taking down […]
