Neil Young: Fork in the Road

Neil Young's latest set, Fork in the Road, took inspiration from his LincVolt project, a 1959 Lincoln retrofitted with an experimental electric engine.
The disc, due April 7, has a casual vibe and was written and recorded quickly as Young toured last winter - almost every song is car-themed.

Wobbling with The Woz

Zero Gravity Pac-Man

Pac-Man Physics is an experimental take on Namco's classic maze game, where the law of physics is applied to wall sections, dots and power pellets which are not anchored down to their original spots onscreen. Your goal remains the same and ghosts will still chase you, although collecting power pellets now creates a force of gravity pulling all objects towards one particular direction.

Online Dating Boom

NOT many industries are doing well in the recession. But along with discount retailers and pawnbrokers, online-dating sites such as eHarmony.com and OkCupid.com have seen business look up. There are several theories to explain why. It may be that people have more time to devote to their private lives as the economy slows; that uncertain times increase the desire for companionship; or that living alone is expensive, whereas couples can split many of their costs.

3 Drugs in 1 Wonder Pill

It's been a dream for a decade: a single daily pill combining aspirin, cholesterol medicine and blood pressure drugs — everything people need to prevent heart attacks and strokes in a cheap, generic form. Skeptics said five medicines rolled into a single pill would mean five times more side effects. Some people would get drugs they don't need, while others would get too little. One-size-fits-all would turn out to fit very few, they warned. Now the first big test of the "polypill" has proved them wrong.

"Like luxury cars, mistresses require a lot of time and money to be spent on them...so when it comes to wealthy men cutting back, the other woman is near the top of their list."

A new technology that harnesses the rays of a computer screen to give office workers a tan while they type was today revealed as a charity hoax, after 30,000 people visited the ComputerTan website in 24 hours to register their interest.
ComputerTan is in fact a ruse by the UK skin cancer charity Skcin to raise awareness of skin cancer in the UK. Users who registered for a PC tanning session through the fake ComputerTan website expected to be bathed in heated rays, but were in fact confronted by an alarming collection of facts about skin cancer, and illustrations and photographs of the disease.

Cloris Leachman's Hollwood 'Epic'

CLORIS Leachman is 82, but the spry, Oscar-winning actress -- who recently hoofed it on "Dancing with the Stars" -- hasn't forgotten the hot hookups and wild flirtations of her younger days.
In her new memoir, "Cloris," out next week, she recalls bumping into Gene Hackman while both were shooting movies in San Francisco in the 1970s and dining with him at their hotel.
"As we moved into the main course, it was as if a cosmic wind enveloped us. Some giant space magnet was pulling us together," Leachman writes. "We didn't finish the meal. We went upstairs, flew into bed and made love. It was epic. And the next morning, Gene went back to his film and I went back to mine. I haven't seen Gene since that night, but I remember well the feisty lad he was."

And the fact is Pope John Paul said, since we were born naked, it is art, and it's just showing a beautiful body that God created."
