If you asked me a year ago about my TV watching habits my answer would have been different then today. I would have never imagined that I would watch less TV yet more of the programming I like, or that I could live without cable. Yes, I finally cut the cord and got rid of the dusty yet expensive cable boxes. It's been 6 months since I got rid of cable. I thought that i could not do it. I thought that I would miss the box atop of my tv, but, now i've realized that I do not miss it at…Continue

As a mom tv watching in my household is very limited. I also find that watching tv in itself has evolved. For the most part, I find that instead of spending countless hours in front of the tv soaking in hours of programming we are now on-the-go and choosing what we want to watch and when. There's also so much content available and ways to obtain it that it can be quite overwhelming.
While at home I am constantly multi-tasking while preparing a meal for my family, organizing the home,…Continue

Ever since I discovered Netflix I have been hooked. I rarely watch regular cable television anymore, not only do I enjoy Netflix my kids love it. There are so many choices for the kids to watch such as; movies, cartoons to films that relate to young teens. I especially enjoy Netflix because I have been able to see movies that have not been released in theaters and that I probably wouldn't haven't watched otherwise. I tend to watch movies on the weekend with the family to catch up from the…Continue

Anthropomorphic cartoon cat Hello Kitty will soon star in a Hollywood film, Deadline reports. The movie, set to come out in 2019, will be released through the US subsidiary of Japan's Sanrio lifestyle company.
Several features on a comet being explored by the European Space Agency's Philae lander indicate it could be home to alien life, according to two astronomers. While the comet has a black crust darkening much of its surface, astronomers have spotted evidence that 67P has an underlying icy structure, including icy seas and craters containing frozen lakes with organic debris. The findings from Max Wallis and Chandra Wickramasinghe will be presented today at the Royal Astronomical Society's national meeting in Wales.
The New Horizons team is breathing a big sigh of relief this Monday. Over the weekend, the NASA team resolved a glitch that caused their Pluto probe to go into "safe mode" on July 4th. After a couple hours of analysis and troubleshooting, mission researchers reported that they identified the issue, and the spacecraft is back to normal.
There had to be more to Batman’s principles than just "not killing," thought the would-be criminal, glancing up from a locked fourth-floor safe to scan for the telltale (and absent) light of the Bat Signal. Really, though, most of Gotham thought he shouldn't worry. It had taken a few years, and a lot of broken bones, but Batman's improbable non-lethality slowly drifted from sarcastic theory to accepted law.
For most Americans, this past weekend was one long celebration of national pride, as the Independence Day fireworks gave way to the Women’s World Cup final victory. But the US wasn’t alone in having a patriotic party; the Greeks were dancing in the streets on Sunday as well. Greece’s reasons for jubilation are a little more complex than the American ones, but the end result has been a rather similar expression of national unity and self-determination.
British retailer Marks & Spencer is expanding its free "click & collect" service to more than 100 of its Simply Food franchise stores, just days after rival John Lewis [JLP.UL] said it planned to start charging customers. The expansion of the in-store collection service for goods ordered online, to incorporate franchise partners SSP and MOTO, would allow customers to pick up their orders at locations including railway stations, airports, motorway service stations and hospitals, M&S said on Monday. Employee-owned John Lewis said last week that from July 28 online orders for products costing less than 30 pounds ($46.7), for delivery to John Lewis or Waitrose stores would carry a 2 pound charge.
