Things are heating up between Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky because age really is just a number, you guys. A source tells PEOPLE that nothing can keep this couple down: not an age difference, not long distance, and not an anonymous source tipping off a magazine about their romance. Wonderful! “They are very sweet together and seem happy. They hold hands.” Not notable! The two have reportedly been dating since September, when Aronofsky, 48 directed Lawrence, 26, in an upcoming film...
The Foreman Forecast: Trump's trifecta of trouble
As much as it may gall Democrats, plenty is going right for President Trump. The stock market is booming. Consumer confidence is up. Jobs are looking at least as strong as they were under President Obama. But three big sinkholes are opening by the White House, and this will be a good week to watch how deep and wide they could get. 1) THE RUSSIAN CONNECTION – I feel as if I am writing about the Russians all the time now, and this isn’t even an Olympics year! But every few days we get new details...
Geek Girl in Hollywood: The thing about Spider-Man
The thing about Spider-Man is that he’s us. He’s any of us. I watched the new trailer for “Spider-Man: Homecoming” this morning and it’s more obvious in this version of the Marvel superhero than it’s been in any of the versions I’ve seen out there. Peter Parker is a hot mess. He’s not just the adorable kid from “Captain America: Civil War” with the cute face and the quippy lines. He’s me when I have no idea what I’m doing. He’s your little sister when she follows you around and tries to go to...

Ronda Rousey nude pics 'leak' (new photo gallery)
Ronda Rousey is set to be featured in Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue this month, but she won't be wearing a swimsuit. She'll be wearing body paint. You can view the photos here and here. The photos were "leaked" on the Internet Monday, but it's highly likely that this is a promotional deal. It will be the second straight year Rousey has appeared in SI's most popular annual issue. Click here to see the UFC star's first SI takes. Also, above is a gallery of some of Rousey's best shots from...
Veteran indie rockers Modest Mouse still worth a watch
When Modest Mouse began their two night sold-out run at Webster Hall last Wednesday with the stretched-out slow burner "Of Course We Know" (off of their new full-length Stranger to Ourselves), it was quickly apparent they're not going anywhere anytime soon. Strangers to Ourselves comes after an eight-year hiatus, and a decade after band-defining single "Float On," but Isaac Brock's trademark yelp-y, staccato voice only gets more refined with age. Now 39, Brock is still the same quirky...
Ask SEPTA: GM Knueppel talks Regional Rail schedules changes
SEPTA GM Jeffrey Knueppel asked to use this week's Ask SEPTA column to address readers about changes to the Regional Rail. SEPTA is embarking on a second round of schedule changes on Regional Rail starting this weekend. The initial Regional Rail adjustments, made in December 2015, were designed to improve on-time performance and reliability system-wide on weekdays. These changes were put into place after SEPTA spent over a year pin-pointing the problems that were leading to unacceptable drops...
Watch live as Press Secretary Sean Spicer holds the daily press briefing
A Sean Spicer press conference, while perhaps not as wild as SNL's Spicer skits with Melissa McCarthy, tend to garner a lot of attention, whether the White House is discussing "alternative facts" or denying President Trump's administration has ties to Russia. The White House press secretary gives the media daily briefings that you can watch live right here. The presser today, March 30, will begin at 1:30 p.m., according to the White House's website.

LIVE STREAM: Funeral for FDNY EMT run over after ambulance hijacked held in the Bronx
Thousands are expected to attend the funeral for Yadira Arroyo, the FDNY EMT who was run over after her ambulance was hijacked last week, in the Bronx on Saturday. The 14-year department veteran — and mother of five — died March 16 after suspect Jose Gonzalez stole the ambulance as Arroyo, 44, and another EMT were heading to a call. Arroyo’s funeral will take place at 11 a.m. at St. Nicholas of Tolentine Roman Catholic Church in University Heights. The service will be live streamed.
Hijacker kills New York paramedic under wheels of her ambulance
A paramedic was killed after a man hijacked her ambulance in New York City and reversed over her, city officials said on Friday. Police have arrested a suspect on murder charges. Yadira Arroyo, 44, and her female partner were traveling in their ambulance in the Bronx when a passing motorist alerted them to a man riding at the back of their vehicle, city officials said. They stopped and got out of the ambulance to investigate. The man then climbed into the driver's seat and put the ambulance in...
Boston gay vets group says booted from St. Patrick's Day parade
(Reuters) - A gay veterans' group that marched in the past two editions of Boston's St. Patrick's Day Parade said the event's organizers have voted to exclude them from the march, reigniting a fight over cultural inclusion in the annual event. Organizers of the parade, the largest marking St. Patrick's Day in the country, had long excluded openly gay groups from participating, saying that doing so would conflict with the parade organizers' Roman Catholic heritage. But they backed down in 2015...
Schwarzenegger quits 'Celebrity Apprentice' over show's Trump ties
By Piya Sinha-Roy LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Arnold Schwarzenegger said on Friday he will not be back for another season of NBC's reality show "The Celebrity Apprentice," blaming U.S. President Donald Trump's ongoing role as executive producer for low ratings. Action movie star Schwarzenegger took over as host of "Celebrity Apprentice" last year. His first season, which premiered in January, has been watched by around 4 million to 5 million viewers. "Everyone - from the celebrities to the crew to...
'Ghost in the Shell' is another film where ScarJo kills it as a humanoid
‘Ghost in the Shell’ Director: Rupert Sanders Stars: Scarlett Johansson, Pilou Asbaek Rating: PG-13 3 (out of 5) Globes The very embodiment of the American remake of something foreign, the new “Ghost in the Shell” is like a late-comer to a party it itself started. You can blame a good deal of modern blockbuster cinema on Mamoru Oshii’s 1995 anime (adapted from the beloved manga). Word is, when they were trying to get the money for “The Matrix,” the Wachowskis simply screened the cyberpunk...
Sorry, but 'The Boss Baby' isn't accidentally about Donald Trump
‘The Boss Baby’ Director: Tom McGrath Voices of: Alec Baldwin, Miles Christopher Bakshi Rating: PG 2 (out of 5) Globes “The Boss Baby” plays like one of those films that started out with a simple, zero-common-denominator pitch, then got hopelessly garbled en route to the big screen. It probably began with seven simple words: “What if a baby was a boss?” Luckily, at some point enough people realized that was stupid even for a stupid kids’ movie. But in trying to make it smart, they...
Nostalgia alert! The cast of Buffy relives their younger, finer days
The cast of “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” has reunited and it is very cute, considering I personally have only watched a handful of episodes. “Buffy” recently celebrated it’s 20th anniversary, so the cast came back together — older, wiser, and with way more money — to celebrate. Also, because Entertainment Weekly asked them to. So if you’re even remotely into nostalgia, you’re going to love this. Related: This is the Fresh Prince reunion you've been waiting for
Yankees current young core resembles the old New York 'core four'
It was not that long ago in this very galaxy that the New York Yankees adopted the reputation as Major League Baseball’s “Evil Empire.” From 1996-2009, the Bronx Bombers won five World Series titles built around the “Core Four” of Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada and Andy Pettitte, who all made their MLB debuts in 1995. Jeter and Rivera are surefire, first-ballot Hall of Famers as the best shortstop and closer of their generation respectively while Posada and Pettitte will take their...
Yankees 2017 season preview: All eyes on Gary Sanchez, young Yanks
The Yankees enter 2017 in a quasi-rebuilding mode; they haven’t stripped their roster down ala the Chicago White Sox, but they're not exactly stacked like the defending champion Cubs either. Masahiro Tanaka (14-4, 3.07 ERA in 2016) will get the ball in the Yankees’ Opening Day tilt with the Rays this Sunday, but beyond the ace, the starters look shaky. The rapidly-aging CC Sabathia (9-12, 3.90) and the enigmatic Michael Pineda (6-12, 4.82) are projected to see plenty of starts, with Luis...
David Ortiz retirement about to hit Red Sox fans like a ton of bricks
Monday is going to feel weird. It's Opening Day for the Red Sox. They host the Pittsburgh Pirates. The temperature will be in the mid-40s. Pregame ceremonies at Fenway Park will be business as usual. And when the first pitch is thrown by Rick Porcello at approximately 2:05 p.m., baseball season will have officially begun. Something won't feel right though. There will be something missing. And in the bottom of the first inning, it will hit us like a ton of bricks. David Ortiz will not be there....
When is Mother’s Day 2017?
This year, Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 14. The holiday in celebration of mothers and motherhood always occurs on the second Sunday of May, although the calendar date varies from year to year. And while it is widely celebrated, it isn’t considered an official federal holiday, so businesses will remain open —with the exception of banks and other institutions which are typically closed on Sundays.
