WOW: Rudy Giuliani Says There Were No Islamic Terrorist Attacks 'Before Obama'
Stumping for Trump has given Rudy Giuliani a case of amnesia. Speaking to a crowd in Ohio, the former New York City mayor claimed that during the 8 years under George W. Bush presidency the US saw "no successful radical Islamic terrorist attack." Remember that al-Qaeda? Remember that thing that happened in New York City on September 11, 2001? Giuliani doesn't.

Researches Prove The Gender Bias in Media Coverage of The Olympics
Using a multi-billion word database of written and spoken text from a range of media sources, Cambridge University researchers have determined that the most common terms sportscasters have used to describe female competitors include "aged" "older" "pregnant", "married" or "unmarried". Basically, everything that has nothing to do with sports!
Male athletes earn phrases like, "fastest" "strong" big" or "great". Go figure! Research also indicates that women are more likely to be referred to as "girls" than men are called "boys". (via: BBC)
