Less than a week after Latin America's most famous author Gabriel Garcia Márquez died in his home at the age of 87, family, friends, and admirers paid tribute to him today in a moving memorial at the Bellas Artes Palace in Mexico City.
According to reports, thousands of his readers waited in line in the neighboring park for a chance to pay their respects. Inside, guests gave a standing ovation when the black urn with the adored author's ashes was carried down the stairs of the lobby and placed on a pedestal surrounded by yellow flowers. It was a touching and beautiful ceremony for the man who made a difference in so many lives.
An oversized bully on a New York City bus got his comeuppance this weekend and it was all caught on video. I have no idea why, but this jerk decided to pick on an elderly couple that were sitting at the front of the bus. They don't appear to be doing anything to incite this fool, but he keeps yelling and cursing at them and saying things to them that make you want to wash his mouth out with soap.
As he's yelling at them, you see a couple of people get up to move away from the crazy man, I would have too. However, I have to say that I am proud of the people on that bus because when push came to shove, they defended those abuelos against that desgraciado. Oh yeah, they kicked his nalgas right off the bus and you've got to see it.

The Boston Marathon took place today and for many, it was a chance to complete the race in a symbolic gesture of support to the city still recovering from last year's fatal bombing attack. But for Greg Picklesimer, it was that and more.
After completing the Boston Marathon for the second time this year (he completed it hours before the attack last year), he decided to propose to his girlfriend Carla White at the finish line. Wow! And as luck would have it, a reporter on the scene managed to capture the special moment on camera. Check out the heartwarming photo after the jump!Continue Reading >
La verdad es que no entiendo las leyes en países como Irán, donde una persona abusada podría ser ejecutada por algo que en este lado del mundo, posiblemente sea considerado como defensa propia.
Imagínense que una pobre mujer Iraní, quien fue violada, deberá pagar con su vida por haber matado a Moreteza Abdolai Sarbandi, el tipo que la abusó, si es que no pide perdón a la familia del hombre.
Se trata de la diseñadora de interiores Reyhaneh Jabbari, de 26 años, quien acudió a un llamado de trabajo y terminó atravesando la peor pesadilla de su vida. Lo más preocupante es que la familia del tipo no le cree en lo absoluto, y le quedan pocas semanas para ser ajusticiada.Continue Reading >

Is it me or are schools punishing students for the stupidest reasons? I've heard of kids getting suspended for sporting unique hairstyles or even wearing certain clothes. But this latest story is 10 times more offensive. A teenage couple from Martin Luther High School in New York was recently banned from attending their prom and for the most unfair reason EVER!
