Normally, updates are supposed to be improvements, but this update has concerned many users and thrown everybody off. It has made the formerly user-friendly app hard to use and relatively unorganized. ...

When people hear about the Big XII conference, they don’t usually associate the teams with those of other blue-blood programs such as Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina, and others. However, it’s time for that viewpoint to change. The Big XII has been one of the most dominant basketball conferences in...

Everyone remembers Miley's stunt at the 2013 VMA's: the moment when everything changed. A sweet, modest, and charming actress/singer became the poster child of the problems in our generation, supplemented by too much fame.
