For the last six months, Catholic cardinals, bishops and theologians have been deliberating in Vatican City, discussing the future of the church and redefining long-held Catholic doctrines and dogmas. The Third Vatican Council, is undoubtedly the largest and most important since the Second Vatican Council was concluded in 1962. Pope Francis convened the new council to “finally finish the work of the Second Vatican Council.” While some traditionalists and conservative reactionaries on the far right have decried these efforts, they have delighted progressives around the world.

The Coolest Science of 2013, in GIFs

An electronic circuit that dissolves in the presence of water. From video by University of Illinois
If a picture’s worth a thousand words, a GIF is easily worth a million. The file format—which uses a series of images to produce a looping video, like a flip book—is a tremendous way to convey all sorts of moving wonders, and 2013 was the year that the GIF truly went mainstream, with GIFs of celebritiessports and politicians filling the Web.
But 2013 was also a banner year for science—so much so that the word ‘science’ was Merriam-Webster’s word of the year. It’s appropriate, then, that we use the GIF to explore some of the coolest, weirdest, most remarkable science stories of 2013. What follows is a non-exhaustive list of amazing science GIFs from 2013, in no particular order.

Disappointed Mourinho aiming for just top-four spot

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho appears to have ruled his side out of contention for this season’s Premier League title.

Even though Mourinho’s Blues are within touching distance of the league leaders, Arsenal, at the half way point in the season, the two-time Premier League winning boss has again backed Manuel Pellegrini’s Manchester City to claim the crown.
Mourinho is instead suggesting that his side’s priority this season is merely to finish in the top four.
“At this moment, everybody is there. It’s Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and City in the top four,” stated Mourinho. “This year, the pressure will be not just to win the title, but to get top four. I think it will be hard.

selena lupus
When Selena Gomez said she was canceling part of her tour for "personal reasons," we wondered if it had to do withJustin Bieber.
But the Come And Get It singer may be dealing with more serious health issues than heartbreak.
She may be taking the time off to deal with lupus!
According to an unverified report, Selena was diagnosed with the rare autoimmune disorder over two years ago but has seen an increase in "flares" lately.
According to the source of the report, Selena's rise in symptoms, which include facial swelling, extreme fatigue, and joint pain, have convinced her to take it easy. The source says:
"Selena has been going full throttle the past few years and her Lupus is really catching up with her right now. She knows that she needs to take some time to address the disease and look after herself better if she wants to live a full and healthy life."
Selena and her reps have not confirmed any of this, so for now we'll just let Selena's announcements speak for themselves.
But we will say that we hope no matter what Selena is facing, she has our full support! You take as much time as you need, gurl!

Ronaldo, Keshi, Neymar nominated for ESPN Most Influential Person inFootball

Football - 2013 Africa Cup of Nations Finals - Final - Nigeria v Burkina Faso - National Stadium - Johannesburg
Sports website ESPN has released it’s 10-man shortlist for its debut Most Influential Person in Football award.
Nigeria’s African Cup of Nations-winning coach, Stephen Keshi, is the only African on the list.
Here are the candidates for the award (in alphabetical order):
Gareth Bale: Can a player be underrated when he comes with a 100 million pound price tag? For some reason or another, the towering Welsh winger isn’t mentioned in the same circles as some of the players mentioned here despite putting up very strong stats. Prior to his move to Real Madrid, many wondered if Bale could excel in the very technical La Liga, but he’s thrived thus far with seven goals and six assists in eight league appearances. Pair that with his dominance in the Premier League (21 goals and 4 assists in the 2012-2013 season) and you have a world-class player.

justin bieber beyonce 4382910
Justin Bieber may not be number one at the box office withBelieve, but he's number one somewhere else!
After the release of his Journals, the popstar made his way to number one on Billboard's Social 50 chart, dethroningBeyoncé of her top spot!
If you're unclear what the Social 50 chart is, it basically measures where artists rank on all their social media platforms, so, it looks like JBieb's "retirement" freak out allowed the star to rise up in the ranks!
Billboard breaks it down and explains how JB got his groove back, they said:
Bieber’s rise back to No. 1 is fueled by a promotion blitz across all social media channels. Frequent updates promoting Journals and a "complete my Journals" deal through iTunes on Instagram lead to a 31% rise in post likes on the platform. This positive reaction from fans was mirrored on Facebook, where a 25% rise in conversation about the artist on the platform leads to a 1.8 million new fans on the platform, a 56% increase over the previous week.
The Biebs should thank his lucky stars, team for all that hard work!
Let's see you work harder now that you're back from that short retirement of yours!

Tyra Banks To Never Model Again!?

tyra banks quitting modeling
The woman who made "fierce" and "smize" a regular part of our vocabulary may likely never model again!
WHAT?! And yet, it's true!
In fact, Tyra Banks admits she doesn't even miss those days! She said:
"I don't miss modeling very much because I haveAmerica's Next Top Model, so for the past ten years I've been creating photo shoots, executive producing the television show, and doing a lot of photo shoots myself."
Well, it probably is better being the boss!
Though she does admit that modeling wasn't all that difficult as far as work. She explained:
"I do look back to those modeling days when it was just some people on your nails, somebody on your hair, somebody on your makeup, and you're just like, 'What angle am I going to do today?' So it was a pretty non- challenging life in terms of not having to micromanage and wear so many different hats, but it wasn't easy."
The supermodel also relates how tough modeling can be on a person's self esteem, saying:

Couple has been living under a rock, literally for 30 Years

For many people, the idea of living under a rock might seem like the punchline of a joke. But for one Mexican couple, a hut wedged below a 130-foot boulder in Coahuila, Mexico, has been home for the past 30 years.

Concert Review: Britney Spears' "Piece of Me" Vegas Show


Britney Spears made her big debut at Planet Hollywood on Friday night, kicking off her two-year 
residency with her much-hyped "Piece of Me" show.
The singer will reportedly be making $15 million a year for the gig and is slated to perform about 50 shows a year. 
But with ticket prices ranging from $59-$179 (and even more for some very expensive VIP packages), is the 90-minute show worth the money?

Many will disagree with me, I'm sure ... but I say "Yes."

Paul Walker Accused Of Faking His Own Death By Insensitive Website!

paul walker 7894
This is just so rude!
We're not entirely sure we understand why someone would fake their death and cause their family and even the world all that grief! We understand it LESS when someone accuses a person who was taken so soon of doing such a deplorable thing!
Deceased Paul Walker has been accused of faking his owndeath with Roger Rodas in the fiery accident that occurredon November 30th.
The article on claims the Fast & Furious actor's family and friends are all pulling a fast one the world, claiming:
They are all lying. Paul Walker didn’t die. Nor did Roger Rodas. They are both alive and well, and their relatives well know it.
It has already been established that the relatives of Paul Walker are involved in a cover-up, that is the cover-up of faking the actor’s death. It has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, here, that the accident is a 
fabrication and that there wasn’t any real car crash. Rather, what is seen is imagery of a man-made car fire and a car pre-placed in position to be incinerated: without either Walker or Rodas inside.
WTF?! Boo! All kinds of BOOOOO!

Miley Cyrus tongue licking Cara Delevingne

This is Miley Cyrus licking -- or is it bumping tongues? Is that even a thing? -- with Victoria's Secret model Cara Delevingne and if you're wondering about whether or not Miley's going to change her behavior over the next few days and magically become someone who doesn't engender feelings of pity and eye-rolling, here's the sad state of things: the answer is probably 'no'.

No, Miley is not going to stop this, because this is what's getting Miley publicity these days. It's not that she's recording music of the stuff that legends are made of, and it's not that she's championing human rights and making impressive strides against the fight for equal rights or something. Miley's tongue is what's getting her in headlines these days, and when the novelty finally wears off -- and oh, you better believe it will -- we'll have absolutely nothing to talk about where this girl is concerned.

Thank goodness, and so, as Tiny Tim said, "God bless us, every one."
