This past week I saw a new “word” floating all over the Internet — “Twerking,” which was trending all over social media since Miley Cyrus’ performance on the MTV VMAs. I will admit that I have not and will not be watching the video — to me this is qualified as TMI (Too Much Information). I did look up the word “Twerking,” out of curiosity. According to the Oxford Dictionary Online it’s a dance move that involves a person, usually a woman, shaking her hips in an up-and-down bouncing motion, causing the dancer to shake, “wobble” and “jiggle.” Wikipedia says to twerk is “to dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance.” After reading that explanation, I can guarantee my dance moves DO NOT contain “Twerking” and if they did, I’m quite sure I would pull a muscle!

Characters are frequently urged to "release the beast" in "The Purge," a high-concept home-invasion shocker set in a future where one night a year, all crime is legal. But what should be a clammy exercise in claustrophobic, queasy tension becomes, in the hands of writer/director James DeMonaco, an underpowered compendium of over-familiar scare tactics and sledgehammer-subtle social satire. The intriguingly nightmarish premise may well rustle up a decent opening weekend for a picture that comes with the imprimatur of producer Michael Bay before the lukewarm word of mouth hastens its trip to DVD and VOD.
You spend time and money to create a nice home. How can you protect it from intruders without it costing a fortune? It’s easier than you think.
They were 12 ordinary citizens who didn't oppose the death penalty. But unlike spectators outside the courthouse who followed the case like a daytime soap opera and jumped to demand Jodi Arias' execution, the jurors faced a decision that was wrenching and real, with implications that could haunt them forever.
Jurors who spent five months determining Jodi Arias’ fate couldn’t decide whether she should get life in prison or die for murdering her boyfriend, sending prosecutors back to the drawing board to rehash the shocking case of sex, lies and violence to another 12 people.
