AT&T will purchase Time Warner for over $80 billion, the Wall Street Journal reports Saturday afternoon. “According to people familiar with the plans,” the two companies will likely announce this as soon as Saturday night. AT&T will reportedly pay between $105 and $110 a share for Time Warner. According to another anonymous source, the deal is half-cash, half-stock.
Frosé might have been the trendy drink of summer, but it certainly isn't something you want to snuggle up with now that it's cold out. Pumpkin spice lattes are always an option for the fall, and hot chocolate is a classic, but neither of them quite have the allure and intrigue that frosé did this year.
So, what are you going to put in your mug when the winter blues hit?
To nobody's surprise at all, the internet quickly became obsessed last week with the idea of red wine hot chocolate. It's not a new concept by any means, but when blogger Imma Eat That posted her recipe for red wine hot chocolate, the internet quickly grabbed onto the idea and declared it the new thing to drink this fall and winter.<p><a href='http://www.thekitchn.com/red-wine-hot-chocolate-is-the-answer-to-your-cold-weather-blues-237840'><strong>READ MORE »</strong></a></p>
With the NX debut hitting later this morning, here’s a brand new Breath of the Wild trailer with gameplay, exploration, and weather. Goodness, this game looks glorious.
I don't think anyone needs a national food holiday to convince them to eat a big, comforting bowl of pasta on a chilly fall evening, but hey — a little extra encouragement never hurts. If you're on the hunt for the perfect recipe to celebrate, this one, with a pumpkin-tomato sauce, ground turkey, and kale, should do the trick.<p><a href='http://www.thekitchn.com/celebrate-national-pasta-day-with-this-creamy-pumpkin-spaghetti-237310'><strong>READ MORE »</strong></a></p>
When I first saw the photo for this recipe, I thought onion rings! Then I thought doughnuts!

It takes a certain gall to pair twice-accused sexual harasser Bill O’Reilly with serial adulterer Newt Gingrich as a team to complain about the media coverage of multiple allegations of Donald Trump’s sexual abuse. Even worse, each has been a major player in using the media to ruin other people’s careers and worse.
O’Reilly sat down with Gingrich last night to discuss the barrage of accusations, from a slew of different women, that Donald Trump had sexually assaulted or groped or slimed them. To be clear, the accusations, which came out Wednesday night, emerged after the release of Access Hollywood’s hot mic video of Donald Trump boasting about just that sort of behavior: “I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait… And when you’re a star, they let you do it. …Grab them by the p---y.”

Electric pressure cookers can be surprisingly difficult to understand, thanks to the abundance of multifunction buttons and not a lot of explanation about what those buttons do.
Take the pressure settings. On some models, high pressure is the only option. Others offer both a high and low pressure setting. And one in particular even allows you to select a specific psi (pressure).
So what's a cook to do?<p><a href='http://www.thekitchn.com/when-to-use-high-or-low-pressure-on-the-instant-pot-236432'><strong>READ MORE »</strong></a></p>
The former frontman of My Chemical Romance is looking up kinky obsessions on YouTube to power his fringe-friendly comics writing.
In “The Return of Doctor Mysterio” (The colloquial name for Doctor Who in Spanish-speaking countries), the beloved Time Lord and his TARDIS travel across the pond to save New York City from the threat of deadly aliens who wish to cause them harm. The Doctor is assisted by an eager investigative journalist (Charity Wakefield) and a caped-crusading superhero (Justin Chatwin). In anticipation of the holiday episode, the BBC released a behind-the-scenes teaser.
This Christmas, the Doctor teams up with a comic-book superhero in New York for a heroic special titled, The Return of Doctor Mysterio. We also have a brand new image and a behind-the-scenes trailer to share.

In September, the BBC announced a new spinoff series about students who attend the Coal Hill Academy, a fictional institution that has been referenced since the first series of Doctor Who. Entitled “Class“, the series will focus on six sixth-formers (high school juniors) whose teenage lives are complicated with the excitement and stress that comes with time travel.
It’s a new term at Coal Hill Academy, and students are preparing for their Autumn Prom. But when the school comes under attack, four alienated students must form an unlikely alliance to defeat them. And this incursion is only the beginning…??Charlie (played by Greg Austin), April (Sophie Hopkins), Ram (Fady Elsayed) and Tanya (Vivian Oparah), assisted by their physics teacher Miss Quill (Katherine Kelly), are charged with a great responsibility by the mysterious alien known as the Doctor (Peter Capaldi): guard against the creatures of nightmare that want nothing more than to find a way through to Earth and take it for their own.
Class begins on BBC Three on October 22, 2016 and on BBC America in 2017

Nike partnered with The Michael J. Fox Foundation to release a limited edition of their iconic Nike Mag self-lacing shoes that worn by Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) in Back to the Future Part II. The majority of Nike’s 89 pairs of Nike Mags will be given out to donators via a digital raffle drawing through the Nike website and the Nike+ running app. The draw will begin on October 4th, 2016 and end on October 11th. All proceeds will go to The Michael J. Fox Foundation and help “accelerate development of a cure for Parkinson’s disease.”
Almost 30 years ago, Nike inspired a future vision of footwear — an individually responsive shoe that senses the wearer and adapts on its own. The Nike Mag, famously worn on the silver screen by Michael J. Fox, quickly became a cultural icon.
Today, Nike and The Michael J. Fox Foundation proudly announce the release of the 2016 Nike Mag — a limited-edition release of only 89 pairs available globally through an online draw — to once again channel the excitement of the Nike Mag to raise awareness in the fight against Parkinson’s disease and the Foundation’s tireless efforts to speed a cure.

This PS4 Slim Uncharted bundle costs $10 more than buying the console by itself, but it comes with a copy of Overwatch (which you should definitely play!) and Star Wars Battlefront (which is definitely a game!). All things considered, that’s one of the best deals we’ve seen on the Slim to date.
Ashley Eckstein’s Her Universe clothing line has just revealed a new wave of Marvel-heroine inspired outfits, but this dress based on Peggy Carter’s look? The best. Easily.
This is how cynical Republicans are. Forget facts, forget what really happened. Just write the outcome up and post it on the Internet regardless of what might actually happen. And then, for good measure, be sure to publish it ahead of the actual debate.
Along with the screen shot above, here's the rest of their now-unpublished post.

Yep, see that! Pence hit Tim Kaine hard on Hillary's scandals and the economy, BEFORE HE TOOK THE STAGE.
That's some magic voodoo right there.
What that basically tells everyone is that reality doesn't matter. It only matters how Republicans spin reality. They can write it all up in advance, because they will spin whatever happens in that direction.
Good job there, RNC. At least if the measure of a good job is being as completely cynical and calculating as is possible.
By combining archaeology with 3D computer modeling, European researchers have digitally reconstructed a house in Pompeii, showing how lavish and colorful these structures truly were before they were destroyed by a catastrophic volcanic eruption.
We find the idea of a Jawa lawn ornament a bit puzzling. After all, aren’t Jawas desert dwellers? What makes anyone think that a Jawa is going to be able to turn your grass green? We could see a Jawa feeling comfortable in the southwest, maybe in Phoenix or Albuquerque. When your lawn is more of a rock garden, a Jawa would really feel at home. But maybe these are free-thinking Jawas. The kind that are sick of desert life and want to sink their toes into some grass.
This Star Wars Jawa Stone Lawn Ornament 16″ is ready to set up camp on your lawn. Over a foot tall and grey, this resin statue looks at home next to your angel statue or gargoyles. Just be sure to keep an eye on your lawnmower with this little guy around.
Castle living isn't for everyone. Nevermind if that medieval look isn't your style—normally, the stone fortresses are quite cost prohibitive. Well, if that's the only thing holding you back from that castle life, this one in Rogers, Ohio might be for you.<p><a href='http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/an-ohio-castle-that-costs-less-than-a-condo-237064'><strong>READ MORE »</strong></a></p>
