What would improve the quality of your life?

That question was posed to people age 5 to 75. There's one answer that spans generations, but many who are quite content with their existing circumstances...

Antonio Brown now the highest paid receiver in the NFL

At least he's not going to become a Patriot anytime soon!

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Antonio Brown have reached an agreement on a four-year, $68 million deal that makes him the highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Brown is now tied to the Steelers through the 2021 season. He tweeted after he signed his new deal, which is front-loaded; Brown stands to make less money in the fourth and final year of the extension. The breakdown: Brown will make $18.5 million in the first three years of the contract and $12.5 million in the fourth, sources told Schefter. The deal also includes a $19 million signing bonus.

The best "shade" of toast

Just like everyone has their preference for how rare or how well done they like their steak, we all like our toast to be "just so."

SAD!!!

RIP Bill Paxton

He died due to complications from heart surgery at age 61. You may remember him from movies like Alien, Titanic, Apollo 13, Terminator, Twister and Edge of Tomorrow. He's also on the new TV series Training Day and was in the show Big Love.

Pope Francis lightens punishment for pedophile priests

This one isn't going to go over well with many followers and non-followers.

Pope Francis has quietly reduced sanctions against a handful of pedophile priests, applying his vision of a merciful church even to its worst offenders in ways that survivors of abuse and the pope's own advisers question.

One case has come back to haunt him: An Italian priest who received the pope's clemency was later convicted by an Italian criminal court for his sex crimes against children as young as 12. The Rev. Mauro Inzoli is now facing a second church trial after new evidence emerged against him, The Associated Press has learned.

The Inzoli case is one of several in which Francis overruled the advice of the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and reduced a sentence that called for the priest to be defrocked, two canon lawyers and a church official told AP. Instead, the priests were sentenced to penalties including a lifetime of penance and prayer and removal from public ministry.

In some cases, the priests or their high-ranking friends appealed to Francis for clemency by citing the pope's own words about mercy in their petitions, the church official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the proceedings are confidential.

How does Anthony Bourdain eat that much and yet look like this?




Okay, so he's surely not eating as much day to day as he does in front of the camera for tapings of his show. But, my god, for a guy who earns his living off of his own cooking and sampling the cuisine of others (including some very rich offerings), he must workout like a madman!
