Yesterday, the cast of the new Ghostbusters visited the Tufts Medical Center in Boston. In full movie attire with matching backpacks, the cast including Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones entered hospital rooms to talk with patients and their respective families. Some visits even called for an impromptu check under beds and mock scans to make sure there weren’t any ghosts roaming through the halls.

“They were a true delight to have today,” Brooke Hynes, VP of Public Affairs and Communications for Tufts Medical Center, shared with E! News Saturday afternoon. “They were so kind to all the kids and their parents.” She added, “They took their time in each room visiting children as young as a few months to teens. We cannot thank them enough for their happiness and excitement they created.”

Farewell old friend, you served well.

Aerial Cavalrymen of 6th Squadron, 6th Cavalry Regiment, 10th Combat Aviation Brigade, 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry), fly all 30 of the squadrons’ Observational Helicopter-58D Kiowa Warriors in formation over Fort Drum, N.Y. and surrounding areas. After more than 20 years at the installation, the OH-58D will be retired after a final flight July 28, 2015, as a part of the Army’s Aviation Restructure Initiative, which will replace the Kiowa Warriors with a combination of Attack-Helicopter 64 Apaches and unmanned aerial vehicles.

Public Affair – Jessica Simpson

When you put people’s private sexual lives on trial, nobody wins.

That’s because we all sometimes act immorally, and we all sometimes fail to live up to our own ideals. That is not some special sort of failure reserved for Bad People; we all do it. There are times to speak up and stop people from hurting others, and there are gray areas where no one (certainly not me) can really say whether or not something should be publicized. This is neither.

If you want to prevent cheating–if that’s really such a hot issue for you–then encourage people to consider and explore alternatives to monogamy. Not all people who would cheat in a monogamous relationship would behave ethically in a nonmonogamous relationship, sure. Some people suck. Other people are trying to do their best with what they have, and they don’t realize that they have a lot more options than they thought.

So, what now? some will ask. Gawker’s gonna Gawk and hackers gonna hack. True, we can’t undo the damage that has been done and we can’t necessarily prevent creepy people from ever creeping on others and putting their personal business online.

What we can do is refuse to learn the information or act on it. I still don’t even know the name of the executive who hired the porn star, and I don’t intend to learn it. I will not look at the list of Ashley Madison users, just like I chose not to look at the nude celebrity photos that got leaked last year. You shouldn’t either. If more people agree not to look, this type of information loses its power, and those who collect it and leak it lose the power to judge and ruin others’ lives for the fun of it–or for whatever twisted moral justification they manage to invent.

tbh I don’t trust Abe @ all despite how he says the changes to Japan’s pacifist constitution to allow greater usage of military force are meant to be limited. 

This guy is not some pragmatist merely concerned about potential instability from say, North Korea but someone who regularly denies Japanese war crimes and attends ceremonies honouring these war criminals.
