Facebook has been emulating (read: copying) Snapchat for a while now, whether through Instagram or on its own. So, it shouldn't come as a surprise that it's at it again. This time the company is playing around with a feature for Messenger akin to Sna...

Nintendo’s latest device, the Switch, is perhaps the most flexible gaming machine ever created. Both a console and a portable, it allows you to play games in a variety of contexts — which means there are plenty of ways to utilize it over Thanksgiving weekend. You can play games together, all alone, or simply be a spectator. Here are a few options for that post-turkey time.

Black Friday is traditionally all about shopping, but what if it was about something that could actually make a difference in the world? (Not that buying a new TV or iPhone isn't pretty life changing, obviously.) Funny or Die and The Collective PAC have launched a new fundraising campaign to "Reclaim Black Friday," hoping to use the day to support black politicians.  Stars including Yvette Nicole Brown, Meagan Good, Dulé Hill and Metta World Peace are on hand for the PSA, with Good pointing...

Thanksgiving isn't always the best of times for everyone. Most of our families can be, at best, difficult occasionally.  Some would say that's the reason why the National Dog Show exists. But those people haven't seen dogs watching the National Dog Show.  Because it's much better. It must be like the Olympics for dogs.  SEE ALSO: Thanksgiving sides, ranked Many, many people noticed their dogs watching right along with them as the best of their species competed at the national level.

Let's be honest, the Macy's Day Parade isn't the coolest of traditions.  Sure it's something corny and sweet to watch while you're cooking up a storm for your hungry loved ones, but many of the acts that make their way through Harold Square are aimed at generations too young or too old for most of us.  And sometimes, well, they just miss the mark completely.  SEE ALSO: A roasted turkey's big day out in New York City Example A: Jimmy Fallon sang the late, great Prince's "Let's Go Crazy" this...

For the spouses of the brave men and women serving overseas, a phone call or video chat is the only way for families to connect and express their support.

Since the holidays are here, it's important to remember that open communication with your roommates is more important than usual.  You don't want sloppy handwriting to make them think you've been kidnapped.

Gravy is a magical thing. It can rescue even the most bland holiday meals. But too much of anything can be a bad thing, even gravy — especially when it’s being blasted from the tiny cannon of a toy boat strapped to a plastic train.

In it, intrepid YouTuber and sauce delivery pioneer William Osman gives in to the apparent demands of his viewers and tries to make a literal gravy train. A few grocery store and drilling...

The sun sets earlier and earlier every day. As we approach the shortest and darkest days of the year, we fight back with bright candles, colorful lights, optimistic songs, and delicious meals. But in times like these, it's more than just the long nights and wintry winds that threaten to undo us. Every hour, there's a new piece of news that tugs at the seams of our very beings. To fight back the feelings of hopelessness, dread, or fear that follow us every day, we look for escapes. Sometimes...

Chad Emerson, president and CEO of Downtown Huntsville, Inc., knows that the odds are stacked against the city of Huntsville, Alabama being selected as home of Amazon's proposed second headquarters — but he takes a page from the city's space race past when explaining why he believes anything is possible.  "The rockets and the rocketeers were all based here and that was called a 'moon shot,'" Emerson told me.

Hello. My name is Henry P. Twolingos and I am the CEO of Duolingo, and I'm here to discuss Duolingo's questionable push notifications. I understand that learning a language on your own can be difficult, and requires various forms of support from outside sources in order to achieve your goal.

Earlier this week, the Federal Communications Commission released its final plan to kill off the net neutrality policies put in place by Barack Obama. It did this just days before a major national holiday in the United States, and is giving the public just three weeks to react before the rollback will be voted on. But that timing hasn’t stifled the early response. To start, BattleForTheNet.com, a virtual meeting ground that’s been put together by free internet advocacy groups and nonprofits,...

NASA Glenn Research Center has just reinvented the wheel, introducing a new tire that can get back to its original shape after having undergone deformation. This invention was possible thanks to a shape memory alloy based on nickel-titanium.  No matter how many rocks it rolls over, this "Superelastic tire" will return to its pre-deformed shape like nothing ever happened. Originally created for future Mars missions, NASA researchers believe that this technology has the potential to someday...

All wine should be drunk out of sippy cups. Whether you choose to embrace or reject that truth is on you.  The older we get, the more it comes clear that mankind simply wasn't designed to drink out of wine glasses. Humans are far too uncoordinated to hold onto a wine glass without putting its precious little life at risk. Chances are you, or someone you care about, has broken a wine glass on at least a dozen occasions.  I know it's hard to believe, but we don't have to live in fear of our wine...

Italian trade unions said the workers from Amazon’s Piacenza hub in northern Italy had agreed to strike for the first time after they failed to negotiate bonuses with Amazon. The workers also want pay raises to compensate for mandatory night shifts, overtime, or working six days in a row to keep up with logistical demands. Additionally, starting from Black...

Don't think that a holiday would stop the growing list of reasons to ban men.  Two more women have come forward accusing Minnesota Sen.

The two most recent accusers brought their stories to the publication anonymously and without knowledge of each other.  Both women said the senator...
