Frisch getrennt? Mit diesen Büchern überstehst du den Valentinstag

Trennungen sind hart. Du weinst sehr viel, musst ständig an die Person denken, die dir das Herz gebrochen hat und fragst dich, warum gerade du so einen Schmerz verdient hast. Das alles zu überstehen und auch ohne ihn oder sie glücklich zu sein, scheint gerade am Anfang wie eine unlösbare Aufgabe. Doch darum geht es im Grunde nach einem Beziehungsaus: Eine neue Normalität zu schaffen und zu lernen, wer man ohne ihn oder sie eigentlich ist.Dieser Prozess braucht aber seine Zeit. Und wie könnte ma...

One of My Most Potent Travel Writing Secrets: Research Before You Pitch

If you want to break into travel writing, you need to understand that there’s far more to travel writing success than simply doing one task well, like writing. Getting your stories published, and getting paid for your work, is really due to getting a combination of factors right. One of these elements has always seemed like common sense to me. But, when I talk shop with my travel writing peers, it appears that most of them overlook one obvious thing: researching their destinations before they t...

Best NHL Goalies of the 1990s

The 1990s was an amazing decade of growth and excitement for the National Hockey League. With the European influence on the game leading to a faster, more wide-open style of play, the goaltenders had to make plenty of adjustments. The decade had no shortage of great netminders, including some of the greatest to ever play the position. #5 Mike Richter Mike Richter goes down as one of the greatest American-born goaltenders to ever play in the NHL.

Travel: How to spend 3 perfect days in Pebble Beach … without picking up a club

Golf and Pebble Beach go together like skiing and Vail. Each sport is so synonymous with the world-class destination, going there and not playing 18 on the gorgeous Pacific coast or schussing in Rocky Mountain heaven is perhaps as great a sin as skipping a Broadway show while visiting New York or not riding on a cable car as a tourist in San Francisco. Unfathomable as it sounds to pass up the signature activity of the City by the Bay, the Great White Way or Colorado at play, the poshest place al...

19 times 'The Simpsons' accurately predicted the future

"The Simpsons" has built a reputation for predicting the future. Viewers noticed that an episode from 1993 featured a viral outbreak in Springfield, which is similar to the coronavirus currently spreading around the world. A 2017 episode of the cartoon also seemed to preempt Daenerys Targaryen's big plot twist on the penultimate episode of "Game of Thrones." "The Simpsons" also predicted the election of Donald Trump, the discovery of the Higgs boson equation, and a Lady Gaga performance. Visit...

The story behind Dalí and Disney's surrealist short "Destino"

Salvador Dalí and Walt Disney were friends. They met at a party in 1944 and soon began collaborating on a surreal annimated short together. Destino didn't get finished in their lifetimes but was ordered to completion in 1999 by Walt's nephew Roy, who discovered it in the vaults. This hour-and-twenty-minute documentary tells its story.

Revisiting 4 Vegas Golden Knights Preseason Predictions

Before the season started, I made four predictions about the Vegas Golden Knights. Since we are at the bye week, it is about time we check in on those thoughts and find out if I should buy a lottery ticket or go into hiding. Prediction One: Pacific Division Title At the break, the Golden Knights sit one point back of the top spot in the Pacific Division. Not too shabby, except for the fact that they are actually in fifth place in the division and have the most games played of the group. ...

Saturday’s Things To Know: Kentucky survives, Ayo Dosunmu’s on a tear, Roy and Huggs reach milestones

Nick Richards went for 25 points, 14 boards and four blocks and Immanuel Quickley chipped in with 21 points of his own as Kentucky went into Lubbock and knocked off the Red Raiders in overtime. The Red Raiders will have plenty of chances to build on their profile — they get West Virginia (7) at home and play at Kansas (3) next week alone — but there is no doubt that this team has to start winning some games against teams that are not horrific.

In The Wall Street Journal this week, my latest "Anatomy of a Song" column was on Redbone's Come and Get Your Love a No. 5 Billboard pop hit in 1974 (go here).

Michelle Carter was released more than three months early from a county jail in Massachusetts, where she had been serving a 15-month sentence.

Whicker: Kings rookie Matt Roy is a nice surprise in a predictable season

On hockey nights, Staples Center is a quiet sanctuary of low expectations. The fans weren’t expecting much from the Kings. They aren’t getting much. Goals are cherished surprises. Wins are like money you find in the street. The lions of 2012 and 2014 are still around, reminders of the rapture. They’re either too old or too rich to get traded. The coach, Todd McLellan, is new, so he’s not a target. The executives, Luc Robitaille and Rob Blake, have taken pains to explain what they’re doing, and w...

Michelle Carter is serving a 15-month sentence after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the 2014 death of her boyfriend, Conrad Roy III.

Trump Throws Fresh Fuel on Dangerous QAnon Conspiracy Theory

Donald Trump has used his Twitter account to blast his critics, pressure potential witnesses against him, and threaten to blow up North Korea. But for believers in the bizarre pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy theory, the president’s Twitter account serves a more crucial purpose, with his retweets of QAnon fans offering them badly-needed proof that their ludicrous conspiracy theory is real. QAnon believers are convinced that Trump is secretly at war with pedophile-cannibals in the Democratic Party, a t...
