Why Everyone Is Suddenly Obsessed With Sour Beer
Sour beer is the hottest cold drink of 2017. The funky brew is the latest niche offering to take off in a market obsessed with finding ever more obscure and complex beers. In recent years, craft beers have soared in popularity, with particular varieties, such as extremely hoppy IPAs, gaining a strong following among a cadre of beer drinkers, who increasingly view beer with the discernment, vocabulary and sophistication once reserved for wine. Portland’s Ecliptic Brewing introduced a peach sour beer last year and saw sales of the brew double this year, spurring the brewmaster John Harris to make a new batch every wee...

John Legend Ignored Wife Chrissy Teigen ’s Calls So She Turned to Twitter
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are widely acknowledged as one of the nation’s favorite celebrity couple thanks to their hilarious social media exchanges, their mutual love of culinary experiences, and of course, their adorable daughter Luna, but that doesn’t mean that the duo doesn’t encounter complications in their marriage. To wit, consider this tweet that Teigen sent out in the wee hours of Tuesday morning.

President Trump Threatened to ‘Totally Destroy’ North Korea. The U.S. Has Done That Before
President Donald Trump’s vow at the United Nations Tuesday to “totally destroy North Korea” if it attacks the U.S. will be taken very seriously in that country, which was utterly leveled by U.S. bombers six decades ago. American aircraft dropped more bombs on North Korea between 1950 and 1953 than they did in the entire Pacific Theater of World War II — 635,000 tons vs. 503,000 tons. The destruction was so extensive, and so thorough, that bomber crews spent much of the war searching for targets. American planes bombed “everything that moved in North Korea, every brick standing on top of anothe...

Here ’s How James Corden Responded to the Sean Spicer Kiss Backlash
Perhaps the most controversial moment of Sunday night’s Emmys came when Sean Spicer, former press secretary for President Trump, showed up onstage during host Stephen Colbert’s monologue to parody his own job performance, which had been the crux of many of Saturday Night Live‘s most searing commentaries — and the bane of many journalists’ existence while he was still in the gig. While some found it funny, others thought the shocking appearance was in poor taste. So it rubbed many people wrong when Late Late Show host James Corden was later snapped leaning in to kiss Spicer’s cheek during...

Here ’s How the Latest Attempt to Repeal Obamacare Would Work
The latest attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act is getting a second wind as it approaches its final deadline. With less than two weeks before a budgetary deadline that would allow the bill to pass with a simple majority, the so-called Graham-Cassidy bill is within a handful of votes from passing. Named for its sponsors: Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Rep. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, the bill would devolve the current system and let red and blue states go their own way on health care, while cutting federal support over time. It’s a sweeping proposal. Right now, the federal government pays about $110 bil...

Explorers Found a Sunken World War I Submarine With 23 Bodies Inside
A World War I-era German submarine (commonly referred to as a U-boat) filled with 23 bodies was discovered in the waters off the coast of Belgium, officials said Tuesday. The intact, century-old vessel was found by researchers on the floor of the North Sea bordering the region of West Flanders, Governor Carl Decaluwe told the Associated Press. “It’s quite amazing that we found something like this,” Decaluwe said. “The impact damage was at the front, but the submarine remains closed and there are 23 people still onboard.” Damage to the front of the U-boat suggests that it struck a mine with its...

Opioid Overdoses Are Shortening Overall Life Expectancy
In a new study of the leading causes of death in the U.S., researchers say that opioids have contributed to a shortening of life expectancy. Scientists from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report in JAMA that while life expectancy in the U.S. increased overall from 2000 to 2015, that improvement was blunted by deaths from opioid overdoses. (According to other recent research, deaths from opioid overdoses nearly doubled in the U.S. from 2009 to 2015.) The life expectancy for people born in 2015 increased by two years compared to people born in 2000, from 76 years to 78. Much of that gain was due to decreases ...

Travelers in Pennsylvania Could Hit an 80-Mile Detour This Weekend
(NEW CASTLE, Pa.) — Pennsylvania Turnpike officials are warning motorists of an 80-mile detour they’ll encounter in western Pennsylvania over the weekend. The detour will run from 9 p.m. Friday and 4 a.m. Monday as crews close the toll road between the New Castle and Cranberry interchanges. That’s being done so crews can demolish and replace a bridge in New Sewickley. New construction techniques are being used to replace the bridge quickly. But the closure also means motorists who try to use that stretch of turnpike will be detoured onto Interstates 376, 80 and 79 to get around it. Motorists are urged to ...

Teens Today Are Having Sex, Dating and Drinking Less Than They Used To
Contrary to popular belief, today’s kids are not growing up too fast. According to a new study published in the journal Child Development, they’re growing up slower than they used to. The researchers analyzed survey responses from 8.3 million adolescents, ages 13 to 19, from across the country over the last 40 years (1976 to 2016). They found that today’s youths, compared to those in previous decades, are less likely to engage in adult activities, including drinking alcohol, dating, having sex, going out without their parents, driving a car and working a job. Today, the researchers say, 18-year-olds act m...

You Asked: Are iPhones Waterproof?
You’ve dropped your expensive iPhone in a swimming pool, a lake, or (yecch) the toilet. Will it survive? Most likely, though the answer depends on how long it took a dunking, and the depth of that dunking. Most mobile phones are rated “water-resistant” (able to resist but not entirely withstand water penetration), not waterproof (impervious to water). That’s a matter of marketing and legal jargon more than anything. If you drop your phone in the water and it conks out as a result, the manufacturer doesn’t want to be on the hook for damages or having to hand you a free replacement. If your bran...
