Mountain to Moon: 10 Movie Studio Logos and the Stories Behind Them

Whether you consider them as familiar (and curious) relics of a bygone age—or as annoying wastes of time—the studio logos that run before every film you see at the multiplex have long been a part of the whole movie-going experience. In this gallery we’ll take reveal the stories behind some of these symbols—from the snow-capped peak of Paramount’s iconic “Mount Majestic” to the young lunar fisherman that lets you know you’re watching a DreamWorks film.

18 Of The Many Faces Of Brian McCann

Fewer people have had as much of an impact on Conan O'Brien's three late-night TV talk shows as has Brian McCann. Late Night with Conan O'Brien was still trying to prove its worth to NBC in 1995 when McCann joined the show's writing staff and supporting performing players (though McCann showed up on-air there as early as May 1994). He made the big move to Hollywood for the ill-fated run on The Tonight Show -- during which time he managed to coin the nickname Coco for Conan while serving as the "Twitter Tracker" announcer, thereby spawning Team Coco -- and remained a team player for the move to Burbank and TBS for Conan. August 30th marked his final day with Team Coco. McCann, 47, is moving back to New York City.

4 of the Most Expensive Homes For Sale

F. Scott Fitzgerald was right: The very rich are different from you and me. For one thing, they can afford more expensive homes. The purchase price is just the start. Rolling green lawns and hotel-perfect interiors require help. Lots of help. A full staff -- with cooks, maids, gardeners, drivers, handymen and an estate manager -- can cost up to $1 million annually, says Chad Rogers, real estate agent with Hilton & Hyland in Beverly Hills, Calif. And don't forget homeowners insurance. Policies can often run from $50,000 to $240,000 or more per year at this level, depending on the coverage needed, says Rebecca Woan, principal and founder of Chartwell Insurance Services in Chicago. But there is one expense that mega-mansion owners probably don't have: mortgages. Multimillion-dollar homes are most often cash transactions, says Carl Bosse, general director of Associated Realty of the Americas in Green Valley, Ariz. Or some buyers might arrange a securities-based loan.

7 Examples of a Police State, and How They Are Appearing in the US

“Has the United States become a police state?” That’s the stark question I was asked at the beginning of a recent radio interview. Framing the current political climate in these terms is quite blunt, and can be jarring to some people because it automatically conjures images of, for example, Nazi Germany. That’s clearly different than what is occurring right now in the United States. So how do we conceptualize the current state of government repression, and how do we put it in a historical context? Is this a police state? If not, what is it? The image that most people hold of a “police state” is a representation of extreme power dynamics, and repressive tactics to maintain them, at specific points of history. The current political climate in the United States is unique in many ways, and distinct from those eras.

10 Surprising Pro-Hunting Celebrities

Let’s be honest — Hollywood isn’t exactly best friends with the hunting community. We learned that lesson the hard way after the media viciously attacked Donald Trump’s sons for their (completely legal and ethical) African safari. With many actors and actresses donating time and money to groups like PETA, it’s pretty hard to find a outdoors-friendly face in movies and television. Luckily, there are quite a few celebrities — actors, athletes and so forth — who still embrace the hunting lifestyle, some you probably would never have thought of. In the grand tradition of celebrities giving PETA the middle finger, here are eight surprisingly pro-hunting celebrities.

13 Reasons Tea Is Good for You

Put down those saucer cups and get chugging — tea is officially awesome for your health. But before loading up on Red Zinger, make sure that your “tea” is actually tea. Real tea is derived from a particular plant (Camellia sinensis) and includes only four varieties: green, black, white, and oolong. Anything else (like herbal “tea”) is an infusion of a different plant and isn’t technically tea. But what real tea lacks in variety, it makes up for with some serious health benefits. Researchers attribute tea’s health properties to polyphenols (a type of antioxidant) and phytochemicals. Though most studies have focused on the better-known green and black teas, white and oolong also bring benefits to the table. Read on to find out why coffee’s little cousin rocks your health.
