NBA, Clippers eager for Sterling out, Ballmer in

The NBA and the Los Angeles Clippers are ready to move on, even if Donald Sterling wants to keep fighting.

Obama mulls large-scale move on immigration

Making a good first impression might have more to do with your facial features than choosing the right outfit, a new study reveals.

Researchers at the University of York in England analyzed people’s first impressions of 16 social traits in 1,000 facial images. The traits were then organized into three categories: approachability, youthfulness/attractiveness and dominance.
