How would you react if you turned on the TV and saw white supremacists marching with your product?

Louise Linton, the wife of treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin, demonstrated to us all how to not celebrate an eclipse. The Scottish actress unleashed an elitest tirade towards critics on social media after she posted a picture of herself getting off a government plane, adorned with designer clothes.

Joseph Levitch, aka Jerry Lewis, always made people laugh, but it was complicated. The Damn Yankees star was a goofball and control freak but always seemed to step up to the plate. Even when critics were unsatisfied with his performance, he won them back over. Like I said, there is one truth about Jerry Lews: he made people laugh.

Energy experts are using this eclipse to find out how stable our power grid is. It's more important than you think. California gets 10% of its power from the sun and the US is increasingly reliant on solar power.

We've all heard about how women are treated in Afghanistan. What's interesting is that Malala, the young girl in Pakistan who was shot for pursuing an education, had her name spoken in public by her family.
