Music enthusiasts swear by the sound quality of vinyl over CDs, MP3s, and other files, and now it seems that younger generations are starting to see the light, with vinyl sales increasing each year as CD sales drop. This means that more young people are borrowing albums from their parents or buying their own, while those who grew up with them are perhaps dusting off their cherished collections. Before you dig through those crates to listen to your favorite throwback LP or 45-RPM single, make sure that what you’re holding isn’t worth a small fortune.

Popular Dog Breeds Before & After 100 Years Of Breeding

May 9, 2017 11:07 am  | Comments: 0 | Views: 51317
Dogs have been our furry companions for thousands of years, but they didn’t always look the way they do today. Many well-known breeds have changed a lot physically in the last century, largely thanks to humans. By identifying specific traits — such as size, coat color, and demeanor — and allowing only those animals to mate, humans have created at least 167 different “breeds,” or groups of dogs with unique physical and mental characteristics. Still, they’re all part of the same species. Here’s a look at how some of your favorite dog breeds have changed over the last 100 years.

For most Americans, Cinco de Mayo means an excuse to drink tequila, eat Mexican food, and have a good time. But as it turns out, the holiday isn’t nearly as big a cause for celebration in Mexico as it is in the U.S. Whereas Cinco de Mayo festivities can be found in a multitude of U.S. cities with large Mexican-American populations, such as Denver, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Phoenix, and Chicago, the celebrations in Mexico are not nearly as widespread. Before you toss back your margarita, make sure you’re not guilty of any of the common misconceptions many Americans have about Cinco de Mayo.

Check out these controversial film adaptations and exactly what the author thought about the cinematic translation of their work.

Humanity has been extremely lucky to get this far, considering how over the last few million years or more, there have been some very close calls for the planet Earth.

Thankfully, these real-life “doomsday” events worked themselves out naturally or with the brain power by some very bright problem solvers. What will come at us next that we don’t know about is still in question, but for now, here are the 10 times the world almost ended.
