It’s no secret that men like Keith Richards, John Lennon and Frank Sinatra are the first to be mentioned when talking about the evolution of music. But what about women like Joan Jett and Tina Turner, who are equally responsible for putting rock and roll on the map?

The Desert Vista boys cross country kept its pack mentality even defeat.
In “About Time,” Rachel McAdams plays the wife of a man that can travel through time. No, this isn’t a sequel to “The Time Traveler’s Wife,” but its impossible not to make the comparison. There are a few key differences between the two movies, though. For starters, this film is less about the time traveler’s wife and more about the time traveler himself. “About Time” also has the benefit of being more charming than the other McAdams time traveling romance. As far as time-related romantic comedies go, however, it’s no “Groundhog Day.”
Desert Vista showed on its first drive of the game it was ready to do things a little differently.
Alfonso Cuarón’s “Gravity” just might have the most horrifying premise in all of movies. There are several other strong contenders like “Buried,” in which Ryan Reynolds was trapped in a coffin underground, and “127 Hours,” where James Franco was stuck between a rock and a hard place. But honestly, what’s scarier than being stranded in space with limited air and no communication with Earth? Going to outer space is in itself a fairly scary thought. The notion of anything going wrong up there is the worst nightmare imaginable. As the tagline to “Alien” says, in space no one can hear you scream.
Rates are down and values are up, which most of us know is generally a good sign that it might be time to consider a refinance. However, there are several less obvious factors to consider that may also indicate that it’s a great time to refinance. Here are just a few:
Kids are going to change our world for the better. We can count on it. As per my last column (“Next generations resetting our world,” Tribune, Sept. 15), I reported on the idea that as certain society systems collapse, the next generations will step forward and “reset” our trajectory. (See The Fourth Turning by historians William Strauss and Neil Howe.)

In “You’re Next,” Barbara Crampton plays quite possibly the smartest person in the history of slasher flicks. Not more than 10 minutes into the picture, her character hears a strange noise coming from upstairs. Her initial reaction is to immediately get out of the house and drive away. That’s it. Movie’s over. Goodnight, everybody!
LAS VEGAS – Playing offensive line can be described as mini head-on car accidents play after play.
Troutman awarded deans list honors
"You hear nothing. You see nothing. You only serve." Such are the instructions Cecil Gaines receives as he embarks on his daunting new job at the Eisenhower White House in "Lee Daniels' The Butler."
Arizona got a B on a recent national report card that graded states for their efforts to improve financial literacy in high schools.
I’m always pleased when a President of the United States finds time to visit Arizona. Given President Obama’s recent interest in job creation and economic recovery, he certainly came to the right state at the right time. The “Arizona Comeback” is in full-swing, and this was the President’s opportunity to witness firsthand a true economic success story. However, I am disappointed that the President used his visit as an opportunity to lay out a plan for even more big government programs, while also trying to share credit for Arizona’s housing and economic recovery. That credit belongs to the hardworking people of Arizona.
Over the past couple of years, the economic picture has brightened for many cities and states — but some of them are still facing potential financial problems.

The advertisements haven’t divulged much about the film’s plot or characters. For the most part, they’ve only shown big monsters fighting big robots and Idris Elba giving a heated speech to his troops. That’s still more than enough to make any fan boy swoon like a teenage girl watching “Twilight.”

I think we can all agree that with debt close to 17 trillion, the United States of America is pretty much bankrupt. If we can all agree on this fact, then please explain to me why President Obama and the United States Congress would even consider giving legal status/citizenship to 11 million unskilled, uneducated illegals.
