Padre asesina a hijo de siete años y deja a hija luchando por su vida

crime

Celos, rabia, frustración o demencia... Es imposible comprender lo que impulsó a un padre a matar a su hijo de siete años en un sangriento crimen doméstico, por el que también su hija de doce años lucha por su vida en el hospital. Pero, lo cierto, es que el horrible hecho debe conmocionar a muchos para quienes la violencia en el hogar es el más silencioso enemigo de la familia. 

Qué causó esta tragedia es aún un misterio, pero lo que ya se sabe son detalles que hielan la sangre.

Super-fit mom is fat-shaming us all & I'm alright with that

I'm so sick of seeing headlines about why what a particular mom is doing is right or wrong. Seriously, just sick of it. Particularly when it comes to weight and overall fitness. Judging a woman's appearance is one of the easiest ways to bring her down. It's sad, but so true. And as moms, we're even more susceptible to that since pregnancy changes our bodies so drastically to begin with. But what's the point of pitting ourselves against each other, comparing and scrutinizing? Why do we care what another mom looks like--thin or thick?

British mom and fitness competitor Abby Pell, also known as Superabs on Instagram, is the latest mom to stir up some mom-against-mom controversy.

10 Reasons we should ALL worry about the NAACP bombing

holding

I'm so pissed and disgusted at mainstream news media right now for letting down the entire nation with their lack of coverage of the NAACP bombing that happened in Colorado on January 6. I was online ALL DAY that day combing headlines, because that's what I do, and it wasn't until right before I went to bed and decided to look on Twitter that I found out. I saw the hashtag #NAACPBombing literally blowing up (I swear I'm not trying to be funny here, there is nothing funny about this at all), so I had to look into it.

Ricky Martin is NOT dead, shares awesome message via social media

ricky

If you fell for Ricky Martin's death hoax then you can finally breathe easy. I have to admit, this is probably the meanest thing anyone has done to me in 2015 so far. A fake YouTube video recently surfaced showing images of the Puerto Rican pop star killed in a car crash in San Francisco. The video was so convincing that lots of fans started expressing their condolences on social media. No, Ricky loves "Living La Vida Loca," but not crazy enough to get into a deadly accident on the freeway! Not my Ricky anyway. He responded to the ridiculous news in the best way possible.

Mom who refused cancer treatment to save unborn baby dies

mom

New Year's Eve was a somber day for this Utah family who made headlines back in September. Kathy Taylor, the woman who refused cancer treatment while pregnant with her sixth child, lost her battle with terminal cancer. The 34-year-old mother was diagnosed with melanoma six months into her pregnancy and did everything she could to make sure her unborn son was given a chance to live. It's so heartbreaking that baby Luke couldn't make it. He was born two weeks premature and passed away from an infection two weeks later on September 27. I don't know how this family is able to survive in the face of so much tragedy. Taylor's husband, Nathan, opened up about her death and his words will make you cry.

Scientists are developing cloned penises--for good reason

scientist

A straight woman or gay man must have come up with this "scientific discovery." In all seriousness, researchers at Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine confirmed that lab-grown penises may soon be a real thing. The medical research is currently in the works and should be available in the next five years. While this may sound like a perverted mission, the point of this is to help people who have suffered from accidents or birth defects affecting their genital area.

Shocking video of woman writing with her hands & feet at the same time!

You got to see this to believe it! A Chinese woman named Chen Siyuan is able to write with her hands and feet at the same time. As if that doesn't sound like an impossible task, Chen also writes her own poetry in Chinese characters and the English alphabet. The ambidextrous 24-year-old from China's Hebei province has a very unique talent, but her thoughts on how she can make use of her skills are even more fascinating.

Damian Valencia was choking to death on a piece of hard candy when the officer responded to a call for help while on his way home from work. The officer's quick actions kept the toddler alive and the dramatic moment was caught on the cop's body camera and store surveillance footage.

5 Ways Cuba is changing right now

cuba

Imagining a new Cuba may seem virtually impossible to some, but change is coming. President Barack Obama held a press conference today announcing new policies between the U.S. and Cuba. He described the new movement as "cutting loose the shackles of the past." I come from a family of hardcore Cuban exiles and grew up with stories of an "old Cuba," where food, opportunities and wealth was attainable for "casi todos" or "almost everyone" until Fidel Castro's revolution came along.

This Casanova should know that if you play with fire, you're going to get burned. Things definitely got heated during Romeo Santos' live concert in the Dominican Republic after he brought a super fan on-stage to get their "Amorcito" on. You didn't have to ask this lady twice! She was drinking Romeo's love potion with major thirst. Mi'ja, someone should have hosed this lady down. Wait until you see the photos. ¡Ay Dios mio
