No Actors or Actresses of Color Among Oscar Nominees  

NBC News By : Staff Reporting

This year's lineup of Academy Award nominees for acting is the least racially diverse in 17 years.

All the performers nominated across the four acting categories are white — the first time that's happened since 1998, the year "Titanic" scored the top prize. David Oyelowo, the British-born Nigerian actor who played the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in "Selma," was widely expected to be nominated for Best Actor — but he was shut out.

Bradley Cooper ("American Sniper") and Steve Carrel ("Foxcatcher") nabbed nominations in that column, defying predictions from Oscar pundits. - Referenced Article


Are Girl Scouts losing out as cookie sales enter digital realm?  

CNN By : Staff Reporting

When I was a member of the Girl Scout Council of Greater New York, cookie time was my favorite time of the year, from first grade to 12th grade.

I was the girl who hit up teachers before anyone else had a chance, the co-worker's daughter who showed up in person before it became the norm to pass around the order form.

Camping was fun, but nothing beat the joy of watching my order form fill with names as I went from door to door in my apartment building until I reached the bottom. - Referenced Article


Ray Lewis Says the Tuck Rule is the Only Reason We Know Who Tom Brady Is  

The Big Lead By : Jason Lisk

“Listen, not to go all totally out of conscious [I believe he meant ‘context’], but just think about this, Stephen A., honest to God,” Lewis said. “When we — the first time we created something called a tuck rule, it’s the only reason we know — I’m just being honest! — the only reason we know who Tom Brady is, because of a tuck rule! There’s no such thing as a tuck rule! If the ball is in your hand, and I knock it out your hand, whether it’s going backwards, forwards, lateral, sideways, however it’s coming out, that’s a freaking fumble! […]

“They don’t go to that championship game — they don’t go to that championship game if that tuck rule, if that ball is not called a tuck! That’s a fumble!” Lewis shouted. “Charles Woodson made that man clearly fumble the ball and they named it the tuck rule, something that we’ve never heard in today’s game. So now you’ve got to ask yourself: When did the legacy really start?” - Referenced Article
