Top 10 Female Fighters

As mixed martial arts (MMA) continues to gain momentum as the fastest growing sport in history, the action is heating up nowadays with the ladies pounding it out alongside the men. No longer considered to be just another “guy’s sport,” MMA is attracting both male and female fight fans from all around the world, with both parties joining in on the action inside the cage. Sure, watching two guys go toe-to-toe is a real treat, but seeing a couple of lovely ladies battle it out is equally impressive. With that in mind, let’s take a look at 10 of today’s top female fighters.

10 Convicts Presumed Innocent After Execution

English jurist William Blackstone once said, “Better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer.” Even lawyers are indoctrinated with this concept early in law school. Whether you support with the death penalty or not, most individuals would agree with the statement above. Despite the United State’s innocent-until-proven-guilty legal system, there are several cases where a presumably innocent person is convicted of a crime, some even put to death. Sadly, we may never get a chance to find out the truth. The recent inclusion of DNA evidence in trials has been used in some cases to clear many people falsely convicted. There are ten recent cases of people who are now presumed, but not proven, to be innocent and one bonus inclusion.

6 Seriously Strange Animal Adaptations

I write a lot about animals for Neatorama and that’s because I’m always reading about them. The coolest thing about the vast variety of critters is that there are so many and each has evolved their own strange adaptations to survive in their own niche of the planet. With each animal trying to carve out its own special place in the world, it’s not too surprising that there are some that had to dig a little harder and have ended up adapting in very strange ways. These six creatures might not seem too strange at first, but just wait until you read more about their bizarre adaptations. I’d like to give a special thanks to The Proceedings of the Ever So Strange and The Book of Animal Ignorance, both of which greatly contributed to the information in this article.

15 Badass Films Set In New York City

It’s the cultural center of the United States, and arguably of modern Western civilization. As one of the primary entry points for new immigrants, New York City is an incubator for all sorts of new artistic and commercial influences. And, on the big screen, it’s been annihilated dozens of times. Even when they don’t depict the city’s wipeout, the best action flicks, film noirs, and dark comedies set in the Rotten Apple have a certain grit in matching the city’s hardscrabble rep. Here are a few of our favorites.

7 Famous Musicians Who Stole Some of Their Biggest Hits

A lot of people accuse hip-hop artists of stealing their best music. You can't get through a rap song nowadays without hearing bits and snippets of other popular songs that have been "sampled" in. On one hand, it sucks, because now your favorite song is ruined. But on the other hand, at least you have something to complain about now. What most people don't understand, however, is that those original artists probably "sampled" their songs from someone else who had also sampled in their music, and on and on in an eternal circle of "legitimate" theft.

5 Tips for Convincing Your Parent to Do Something about Hearing Loss

With age comes an inevitable decline in our abilities. Hearing loss is a very common issue, and arguably the one adult children of elderly parents complain about the most. Why? Because Mom or Dad’s inability to hear well is often accompanied by a stubborn insistence that, “I hear just fine, it’s everyone else who is mumbling/talking too fast/not speaking loud enough!” Instead of arguing, there are ways to encourage your parent to get his or her hearing loss treated by focusing on the benefits.

The 100 Best B Movies of All Time

Not every film can be the Citizen Kane of its day. For every high-budget “A movie” that commands significant promotion and funding from its studio, there are piles of B movies that scratch and claw their way into existence without the benefit of things like “a budget” or “a script” in some cases. To compare them with A movies in terms of resources and immersiveness isn’t a fair proposition. Instead, discerning film fans are able to simply appreciate them for what they are. But what does “best” mean when we’re talking about films often famous for their shoddy construction? It certainly doesn’t mean “best-made.” It also doesn’t mean “worst-made,” or else films like Manos: The Hands of Fate and The Beast of Yucca Flats would make prominent appearances. They’re not on this list because the meaning of “best” here is “most entertaining,” and I defy you to be entertained by Manos without its MST3k commentary or a pound of medical-grade marijuana. If these films are painful, they’re also equally fun.

The 5 Myths Of The Great Financial Meltdown

It's hard to believe, but it's been five years and a day since the U.S. financial system's problems surfaced, and we're still not even remotely close to being able to feel good about the economy. My admittedly arbitrary start date is June 12, 2007, the day the Wall Street Journal reported that two Bear Stearns hedge funds that owned mortgage securities were in big trouble. At the time, things didn't seem all that grim -- in fact, U.S. stocks hit an all-time high four months later. But in retrospect the travails of the funds, which collapsed within weeks, were a tip-off that a crisis was afoot. Problems kept erupting, efforts to restore calm failed, and we trembled on the brink of a financial abyss in 2008-09. Things have gotten better since then, but still aren't close to being right.
