The 50 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs of All Time
I was eight years old when "Rapper's Delight" made its world premiere on Philadelphia radio. It happened at 8:24 p.m. on a Thursday, after a dinner of porgies, string beans and creamed corn. Me and my sister, Donn, were sneaking a listen of the local soul station while washing dishes when an army of percussion and a syncopated Latin piano line came out of my grandma's JVC clock radio – what appeared to be Chic's "Good Times." The next night, I was prepared, with a prehistoric tape recorder in hand and a black-and-white composition notebook. My boy Aantar became my agent that week, scheduling performances of the song in exchange for snacks or hand-holding with girls in gym class. "Rapper's Delight" turned this future high school band geek into a superstar for the month of October 1979.

5 Famous Mutts From History
Owners of mixed-breed dogs often say their pets are inherently healthier and more intelligent than purebreds. But ask dog breeders, and they'll likely point to the meticulous testing and matching they undergo to ensure a healthy, well-behaved dog. Few studies have been done that extensively compare mixed breeds and purebreds, but one thing is for sure: Purebreds tend to get a lot more attention. These dogs often sell for thousands of dollars, and only purebreds are eligible to compete in the annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. But mixed-breeds still get their time in the spotlight. In honor of National Mutt Day check out these five famous mutts who have made their mark on history.
10 Best Train Movies
Since the very beginning of the art form, trains have always been an important part of cinema. One of the first film ever projected for a paying audience was a film by the Lumière Brothers in 1896, called L’Arrivée d’un Train en Gare de la Ciotat (more commonly known as Arrival of a Train at a Station). It was less than a minute long and would look pretty drab by today’s cinematic standards but it was the beginning of the eighth art. In 1903, what is considered the first narrative film ever made, The Great Train Robbery was made by Edwin S. Porter and released to an unsuspecting audience. Cinema, as they might say, was born.

Top 10 Vitamin Deficiencies
Until quite recently, the role vitamins play in good health was largely unknown. Explorers in the renaissance found that on ships where they ate salted meat and grain, a huge variety of diseases appeared that were cured by eating a more varied diet. People began to suspect the existence of vitamins, tiny substances which were needed to sustain good health. There have been several Nobel Prizes given to scientists who correctly identified specific vitamins, as they allowed thousands of people to avoid death from deficiencies simply by eating a certain food. Today vitamin deficiencies still occur in developing countries or in those who have restrictive diets, but centuries ago people lived in fear of these deadly deficiencies whose causes were unknown and seemed to affect people at random.
10 Heaviest People in History
Extremely heavy and overweight individuals have appeared throughout history. First-century Roman physician Galen refers to Nicomachus of Smyrna, who was bedridden because of his weight. A wall relief from the ancient Egyptian site at Karnak near Luxor includes an obese man with folds of fat. And based on statues like The Venus of Willendorf, we can assume that humans have been overweight since prehistoric times as well. That said, over the past century, there has been a significant increase in public interest surrounding hugely obese people. And for this, we can mainly thank the media – whether it be sensationalist coverage and public weigh-ins, or the pressures of staying thin put so prominently in our faces.
