Story by Cara Strickland. Strickland is a freelance journalist based in Spokane, Wash. I'm often hearing that single women are more likely to buy homes on their own more than single men. Even in my early 20s, anecdotal research backed this up: Many women in my friend group were purchasing their own homes, or dreaming about doing so, and not waiting for a significant other to do it.
The NFL is requiring journalists covering Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis to provide racial identification in requesting credentials to be admitted to the Feb. 4 game. Journalists for years have been asked to provide either a Social Security number or passport number and a photo for FBI security checks for the game, but have not been asked to specify their race, a field that is mandatory in the online press pass application form.
President Donald Trump, former star of "The Apprentice," knows how to put on a show. Yet his "Fake News Awards" are shaping up to be a total flop. Trump will name "the most corrupt & biased of the Mainstream Media" on Wednesday, according to a Jan. 7 tweet, but he appears to have done little preparation for the event - if there even is an event. "We'll keep you posted on any details around that potential event and what that would look like," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Tuesday when asked about the awards.
"Star Wars: The Last Jedi: De-Feminized Fanedit" is a divisive film, even within the community of men's rights activists for whom it was made. Some appreciated the recut, which pares the run time of the 2 1/2-hour "Last Jedi" down to 46 minutes by deleting "most shots showing female fighters/pilots and female officers commanding people around/having ideas," as its creator explained in, uh, let's call it marketing material.

WASHINGTON - Ten months is an eternity in politics, but a stunning Democratic victory Tuesday in a special election deep in the heart of Trump country suggests a blue tsunami could be forming. President Donald Trump became the first Republican to carry Wisconsin in a presidential election since Ronald Reagan by running up his score in places like the rural 10th state Senate district, which includes a swath of five counties between Eau Claire and Superior along the Minnesota border.
For 43 years, schoolkids and their parents have clipped the labels from cookie bags and cracker boxes as part of a popular rewards program called Labels for Education. Through this and similar programs - think Tyson's Project A+ or General Mills' Box Tops for Education - schools get cash and supplies in exchange for clipped labels from participating food items. But these programs, most of which are wildly popular at U.S. schools, may have major downsides for students. Critics say they are designed to sell junk food to children too young to make good health decisions.
Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year.
An adult-film star who was reportedly paid to remain silent about a sexual relationship with Donald Trump a decade before he became president spoke to a journalist because she feared he would not pay up, according to a new account. Stephanie Clifford, whose professional name is Stormy Daniels, spoke to the online magazine Slate multiple times in 2016 before breaking off contact a week before the election, Jacob Weisberg, chairman and editor in chief of The Slate Group, wrote in a story published Tuesday.
WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump requested that his first formal medical exam include a cognitive test and "did exceedingly well," receiving a score of 30 out of 30, the top White House doctor announced on Tuesday afternoon.
