10 Most Endangered Historic Places Named

A Civil War fort, a Chicago hospital and a Chinese neighborhood are among the sites listed as America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The 24th annual list, released Wednesday, includes significant sites that reflect U.S. history and culture and are at risk of permanent damage or destruction. While Alabama's Fort Gaines withstood cannon fire and artillery shells during the Civil War, it is losing a fierce battle with the Gulf of Mexico shoreline. The Dauphin Island fort is one of this year's most threatened places. The battlefield has lost 400 feet due to erosion from rising waters, frequent storms, hurricanes and effects from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill last year.

12 Movie Characters Who Were Set on Fire

A few days ago I gave you guys a list of memorable drowning deaths in movies. It goes without saying that drowning is a pretty horrible way to die. The only equally painful ways I can think of to be killed are being eaten alive or being set on fire. Well, we’ve sort of covered being eaten alive, which leaves us – as far as lists go – with being engulfed in flames. Being set on fire and burned alive doesn’t always result in death, but it always sucks. I don’t think anybody is going to dispute that. I managed to compose a pretty eccentric list of movie characters who were set ablaze; I was surprised to see the characters came from all genres of film and not just horror.

30 Most Influential College Professors on Twitter

People use Twitter for a whole host of different reasons, and while for some it may be a way to follow the lives of celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber, for others it’s a tool for connecting with the world and accessing valuable, immediate information. Twitter has achieved a lot since it was founded in March 2006 – most notably, perhaps, it played a key role in the 2011 Egyptian Revolution – and many high-profile intellectuals and other important figures have joined the tweeting community. The following university professors use their 140-character-limit tweets to share their thoughts, knowledge and expertise and keep their followers up to date with their various pursuits around the globe. As such, their feeds are arguably essential reading for anyone hungry for a well rounded and insightful social media experience. Here are 30 of the most influential college professors on Twitter.

5 Cheap Magic Tricks Behind Every Psychic

I got into magic at the age of five. I stopped thinking psychics were real at the age of five-and-a-half. Mainly because most of them were doing tricks I had just read in the colorful magic book I had bought for three dollars the week before. Somehow these people had been able to turn the sentence "Here's a neat trick that will amuse your family and friends" into "Here's a way to pretend you have God-like powers and convince crowds of credulous and needy people to give you their money." For them, that three dollar book certainly paid for itself. If you want to follow their lead, allow me to present five things you must do if you want to use your cheap magician skills to convince the world you have real psychic powers.

25 Fast Facts About The Federal Reserve

As we approach the 100 year anniversary of the creation of the Federal Reserve, it is absolutely imperative that we get the American people to understand that the Fed is at the very heart of our economic problems. It is a system of money that was created by the bankers and that operates for the benefit of the bankers. The American people like to think that we have a “democratic system”, but there is nothing “democratic” about the Federal Reserve. Unelected, unaccountable central planners from a private central bank run our financial system and manage our economy. There is a reason why financial markets respond with a yawn when Barack Obama says something about the economy, but they swing wildly whenever Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke opens his mouth. The Federal Reserve has far more power over the U.S. economy than anyone else does by a huge margin. The Fed is the biggest Ponzi scheme in the history of the world, and if the American people truly understood how it really works, they would be screaming for it to be abolished immediately.

The Most Egregious 2012 Oscar Snubs

The 2012 Academy Award nominees were announced on the morning of January 24, 2012, and immediately, it became clear that several deserving or expected nominees were snubbed. With 9 nominated films for Best Picture, it was obvious that not every film being honored would receive honors across multiple categories.

America’s 35 Best Hot Dogs

The hot dog is one of the few foods that’s nearly impossible to screw up. You heat it through, tuck it into a bun, squirt on some mustard, and call it lunch. But there’s a big difference between not screwing something up and turning it into a paradigm-shifting, transcendental dining experience. And there are lots of hot dog stands, restaurants, and drive-ins out there that have the power to change your life. The perennial grill mate to hamburgers, the hot dog sometimes gets the short end of the stick, charring at the back of the grill while juicy burgers are snatched up as soon as they hit the right temperature. But there’s a science, if not an art form, behind constructing the perfect hot-dog-eating experience.
