SmileDirectClub -- maker of in-home dental appliances -- is back in the lawsuit business. A couple of years ago, the company sued Lifehacker over an article originally titled "You Could Fuck Up Your Mouth With SmileDirectClub."

Squirrel!

The biggest difference in local wildlife between back in Georgia and Tennessee and here was the squirrels.The local squirrel population in Broad Ripple when I moved here seemed to be entirely made up of humongous red fox squirrels, which hadn't been a common sight in the piney woods on the shores of Fort Loudon Lake.

Freshloafers in Alabama and Tennessee with a Nutrimill or Similar Submitted by G-Regular on May 28, 2020 - 8:18pm. Hey guys,I'm a new baker and first time Nutrimill Classic owner.  I bought mine used.  It produces flour that gives off an interesting and slightly concerning smell.  (I recognize that this is all new for me.)  I posted a little over a week ago asking about it.  I was advised to pass some white rice through it and hopefully that would solve the issue.  I have put 10 pou...

I drove a $46,000 Nissan Maxima to find out if this sedan is still worth a look as automaker's discontinue their legendary four-doors

I tested a $45,865 Nissan Maxima Platinum. The Maxima has been around for decades, and for 2019, the current generation was refreshed. The 2020 Maxima is a moderately stylish sedan with some near-luxury touches in the Platinum trim. But the Maxima's standout feature is its gusty V6 engine, making 300 horsepower. The 2020 Maxima should keep loyalists happy, but the four-door competes in a tough segment that's been shrinking as consumers switch to SUVs. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more...

Whicker: Rams hope new defensive boss Brandon Staley is a quick fixer

It’s not a souffle or a roast duck. It’s football. The prep time is overrated. When Brandon Staley was coaching at John Carroll, there was no spring practice. At Hutchinson Junior College at Kansas, players constantly rushed through the turnstile, none available for more than two years. “When I got hired by the Bears, Khalil Mack showed up seven days before the first regular-season game,” Staley said. “And that was one of his best games. People wonder about it, but the competition starts when ev...
