To cork or not to cork? That is the question. Let’s examine traditional corks, how they are manufactured and the problems that can occur, as well as other forms of wine-bottle closures.
OK. So it’s no secret that Hollywood is a shining example of environmentalism. I mean, when it comes to reuse and recycle, the film industry is unrivaled. If a movie’s a hit, they make it another hit and then another. Let’s see if we can hit a 10-figure, worldwide box-office gross without burning a single creative calorie. The film industry will squeeze every dollar out of a good movie down to the last action figure. It’s the soul-less version of using all the parts of the buffalo.
You could say that timing is everything when it comes to the romance between Megan Sclaroff and Daniel Katz.
Our gardening romance with the most exotic and tropical-looking South African plants has very deep roots. Some 250 years ago, Scottish botanist Francis Masson was the first of the global plant explorers from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, to study these plants. Masson brought to horticulture more than 400 species of South African plants such as the king protea, geranium, cineraria, calla lily, bird of paradise, red-hot-poker, Agapanthus and Amaryllis belladonna. He deserves many thanks for his contributions to our garden world!
Story: It’s springtime, and S Mart employee Ash has the perfect place selected for some off-campus hijinks.

First and foremost, there’s the elephant in the room: This film represents the final work of the late actor James Gandolfini. It obviously has sentimental value; and while this film is not going to be winning any awards, it is—much like Gandolfini himself—a sweet, likeable, flawed movie.
In almost every sport, bigger is better. While there are plenty of examples of guys who are not tall who have thrived, it's just a little easier if you are blessed with size. Johnny Hellweg was blessed with size.

Unreliable and second-hand gossip from around the world*
Like the latest fad diet or cell phone, the search for love is constantly evolving. Singles can internet date, speed date, blind date, double date, virtual date and swing date. OK, I made that last one up, but it could be a thing. Suffice it to say the search for love propels us forward. That’s great, but what if forward isn’t the way to go?

Film critics are calling this the 'Summer of the Bomb.' I’m not sure studios have ever had so many box office flops in one season. Audiences are telling Hollywood in no uncertain terms that it’s going to take more than an A-list star and a hundred-million-dollar budget to sell tickets. So, if Channing Tatum in a wife-beater or Johnny Depp in war paint doesn't get you excited, I’m sorry to say I have good news and bad news on the home front. Here are some interesting rentals and some I wouldn't watch if I were tied to the chair.
After interviewing for a job in Chicago in July 2007, Jessica Pedroli hoped that she’d just met her future boss. But she couldn’t have imagined that she'd also met her future husband. Taken by Jessica's confident personality—and her blue eyes—Ian Kirksey hired her that very day, and a workplace romance soon blossomed.
Movie fans have always had a fascination with superheroes. For decades, we have suspended our disbelief while the web-slinger netted villains, the Dark Knight sped through Gotham, and the Man of Steel leapt tall buildings in a single bound. In the '90s, it was rumored that every single episode of Seinfeld—at Jerry’s insistence—had a visual or verbal reference to Superman. Everybody—and by everybody, I mean men between the ages of 18 and 36—loves superhero movies. And while this movie packs all the talent, special effects and gloss one would expect of a film with this budget and production team, something, unquestionably, is missing.
