Best of 2011: Top 5 Green Cars
Go Green is the call of the new millennium, with almost every manufacturer or consumer trying to introduce, adopt and switch to products which are safe for our environment. With rising pollution levels, our natural resources are getting depleted and crippled day by day. This has led to, even, the automobile sector to jump into the field and thereby manufacture cars and vehicles which are low on emissions, high on mileage, fetch high resale value and are very fuel efficient. The answer to all this resulted in the introduction of hybrid technology vehicles, which are now being innovated and produced to achieve the set goals of saving our mother earth from the evil clutches of global warming.

Did you ever hear a famous actor on a talk show say something along the lines of "I'm really excited about my new movie, people are going to LOVE it!" ... and just know you're being lied to?

When these precious moments of clarity come to pass, they should not only be taken note of, they should be celebrated.

America's 5 Most Stressful Cities of 2012
With common factors such as traffic, crowds, noise, grime, and crime, cities are generally not perceived as oases of calm. But what makes one city more stressful to live in than the next? To gauge the stress of residents in American cities, data cruncher Sperling’s Best Places considered the 50 largest metropolitan areas (which includes suburbs). The team considered the following factors: divorce rate, commute times, unemployment, violent crime, property crime, suicides, alcohol consumption, mental health, sleep troubles, and the annual amount of cloudy days. There wasn’t much variance in several categories. For alcohol consumption per month, each of the top 10 cities ranged from 8.7 to 14 drinks per month; for days per month with poor mental health, the metro areas ranged from 2.9 to 4.3; and for days per month of poor sleep, the range was 6.9 to 8.2.

Top 10 Wizards in Literature
In the last century, entertainment has taken huge leaps forward with the advent of first radio, then television, movies and the Internet. However, one form of entertainment has evolved – writing, specifically novels and the long form of fiction. Funny thing about that evolution is that the fiction genre of fantasy has only just started growing in popularity over the last 30 years or so, despite the best efforts of authors like J.R.R. Tolkien. The history and fascination with fantasy has been around for centuries (think fairy tales and the Brothers Grimm), but only with modern publication and the acceptance of the geek culture has fantasy really surged in popularity. In that time, there have been at least 10 really excellent wizards and sorcerers to strut their stuff across the literary landscape – and here they are in no particular order.
Top 10 Notable People Who Died From AIDS
AIDS is a disease of the human immune system caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The condition progressively reduces the effectiveness of the immune system and leaves individuals susceptible to opportunistic infections and tumors.

6 Ridiculous Reasons Moviegoers Asked For Their Money Back
A group of miffed moviegoers in the U.K. have been demanding "ridiculous" refunds after seeing current Oscar frontrunner The Artist.

"How could you not know it was silent?" asks Jen Chaney at The Washington Post, noting the inescapable media coverage that aspect of The Artist has received.
