On May 25, 1977, fans were introduced to a galaxy far, far away.
While 20th Century Fox had little faith a movie called "Star Wars" would be a hit, the space opera from young filmmaker named George Lucas became a worldwide cultural phenomenon.
Forty years, and a handful of sequels, prequels, and follow-ups later, the multibillion-dollar franchise is a popular as ever.

LONDON/MANCHESTER (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Thursday she would tell U.S. President Donald Trump that intelligence shared between their two countries had to remain secure after leaks to U.S. media about the Manchester attack.

British police stopped sharing information about the suicide bombing with the United States, a British counter-terrorism source told Reuters after police chiefs said the leaks to media risked hindering their investigation.

Police are holding eight people in custody in connection with the attack, which killed 22 people, and Manchester's Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said the arrests were significant.

Did You Know?

At the end of the song “Sweet Child o’ Mine”, found on Guns N’ Roses’ debut album Appetite for Destruction (1987), when Axl Rose sang “Where do we go? Where do we go now?”, he was literally asking “Where do we go with this breakdown to end the song?”—the improvisation sounded so good, however, that it became part of the song.

From Daily Mail: A 20-year-old man who drugged and raped his 16-year-old sister was sentenced to less than a year in prison by a California judge on Wednesday. Bruder was sentenced by Judge William Follet to serve only three years in prison with all but 240 days suspended in favor of granting probation for rape of an intoxicated person, according to the Del Norte District Attorney’s Office. Follet said that the stigma of this conviction along with the mandatory sex offender registration requirements would ‘sufficiently deter Bruder.’

Petty whiners that are upset that Donald Trump achieved what they wanted to do but couldn’t because they are out of touch with average Americans. But how do they stay in office – who is funding their campaigns to keep them in Washington? What America is facing from Soros is nothing less than a well-funded, well-organized and well-connected revolutionary conspiracy to “fundamentally transform” America into a socialist dictatorship.

Claiming to be the world’s most compact and lightweight ebike, the Smacircle sports one of the most striking designs we’ve ever seen for such a machine. Looking from some angles like an elaborately designed pair of (very large) spectacles, the ebike’s strong carbon fiber frame tips the scales at just over 15 pounds (7 kg) and can handle anyone weighing up to 220 pounds (100 kg). Handily, the Smacircle folds up into such a tight package (and in just 10 seconds, apparently) that you can drop it in a backpack once you reach your destination, or carry it straight into your home or office.

A husband and wife who work for the circus go to an adoption agency. Social workers there raise doubts about the living conditions in a circus, but the couple produces photos of their 50-foot luxury motor home, which is clean and well-maintained and equipped with a beautiful nursery.

The social workers also raise concerns about the education a child would receive while in the couple's care. "We've arranged for a full-time tutor who will teach the child all the usual subjects along with French, Mandarin and computer skills."

Then the social workers express concern about a child being raised in a circus environment. "Our nanny is a certified expert in pediatric care, welfare and diet."

The social workers are finally satisfied and ask, "What age child are you hoping to adopt?"





"It doesn't really matter as long as the kid fits in the cannon."
