Why So Many People Saw Batman v Superman Even Though It’s A Bad Movie

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” holds a rating of 29% positive on Rotten Tomatoes, which equates to 1.5 stars. This is a movie that the majority of viewers did not like. Yet the bad feedback hasn’t hurt box office performance.
So far, the movie has pulled in over $170 million in North America, more than the rest of the current box office chart combined.
Clearly, no one was much deterred from seeing Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill duke it out in the DC Comics universe. But why? Schadenfreude? Because it has Ben Affleck?

15-Year-Old Girl Allegedly Sexually Assaulted, Pepper-Sprayed At Donald Trump Rally In Wisconsin

A 15-year-old girl was sexually assaulted before being pepper-sprayed in the face outside a Donald Trump rally in Janesville, Wisconsin on Tuesday, police said.

The teen, identified by local news outlets as a protester, was in a crowd of about 1,000 people gathered outside the Holiday Inn Express when she was allegedly groped by a man and pepper-sprayed by another person.

Videos of the incident showed the teen yelling at a man in the crowd.

“You fucking touched my chest!” she screamed.

“I never touched her,” responded a voice from the throng.

When the teen tried to throw a punch at someone in the crowd, another person sprayed an orange substance in her face.

Authorities said the unarmed teen and another woman who was hit by the pepper spray received medical attention after the incident.

He will not face any formal charges until a later hearing and only at that point will he be expected to enter a plea.

FBI Warned Dutch Police About Extremist Brothers A Week Before Brussels Terror Attacks

FBI Warned Dutch Police About Extremist Brothers A Week Before Brussels Terror Attacks
Dutch police had received an FBI notice that Belgian authorities were looking for the two brothers a week before the pair blew themselves up in the Brussels terror attacks, the Dutch interior minister said on Tuesday.
The Dutch minister claims the information was then relayed to Belgian officials the following day, but Belgian federal police denied the brothers were ever mentioned in the meeting between the two countries on March 17.

The new claims add to the astonishing lapses in security and intelligence after it was reported Ibrahim El Bakraoui was arrested in southern Turkey and deported to the Netherlands on the suspicion he had slipped across the border to Syria to join ISIS.
Dutch Minister of Security and Justice Ard van der Steur clarified the FBI's warnings while Belgian officials face mounting criticism over their counter-terrorism efforts.

10 Things You Never Knew About Kate Middleton

Working Girl
She was a working woman. In 2006, when Kate was just "Prince William's girlfriend," she took a job as an accessory buyer for the fashion store, Jigsaw.
Though her time with the company was short, she managed to impress the company's top brass with her maturity and work ethic.

Previous Engagement
Prince William was not Kate's first love. She had a brief, though apparently steamy relationship with high-profile British lawyer, Rupert Finch.
The couple was even briefly engaged.

Age Aware
Married at age 29, Kate is considered the oldest woman to ever marry the heir apparent to the throne of England.
Well, that's not entirely true. Two woman to marry future kings were older, but they were second wives, so it doesn't count apparently.

How To Cure Jet Lag

Whether you’re just starting out on an adventure or returning from a dream trip, nothing puts a damper on your pre- and post-vacation glow quite like jet lag. And, while there are many products out there that claim to kick it to the curb—a sleep-tracking app, a magical drink, a freezing cold ice-chamber—finding the remedies that actually work can be a bit dizzying.
So, what rids travelers of that debilitating fatigue? Turns out there isn't a quick fix. But, we did some digging, and found seven ways to get you looking and feeling fabulous in (almost) no time.

Get Some Vitamin D and B
Vitamin B-12 is a natural way to keep your body alert and energized, without the shaky side effects of energy drinks. Vitamin D, natural or supplemental, are related to the melatonin levels in your body—a hormone that helps get your body ready for sleep. So get out and soak up some sun (with sunscreen on, of course.)
