Will Ferrells greatest gift as a comedic actor is his ability to convey a complete lack of self-awareness. All of his best characters from his seven-year run on Saturday Night Live, from his clueless Spartan cheerleader, to his hilarious impersonation of President Bush, have been built largely around either complete navet or personal misdirection. His characters are always dorks who think ... ...

Monsters University is a fun-filled cartoon for kids. There is nothing wrong with that, of course. Children deserve their entertainment just as much as adults. The disappointment is that Monsters University is a prequel to Monsters, Inc. from 2001. That Pixar animated film is a bona fide classic -- as beguiling and enchanting and entertaining for adults as it is for children. Instead of ...
Nobody -- and I mean NOBODY! -- can or will get their zzzzz's sitting through World War Z. It is not just the chaotic war that breaks out between living humans and the disease-demented zombies. It is not just the explosive sound level of Marc Forster's action movie. It is not just the brain-bustin' visual stew that Forster serves up. In addition to all that and more, there is ...
Tasmanian-born Crown Princess Mary and husband Crown Prince Frederik will visit Australia in October as patrons of the iconic building.

Our nuclear programmes are completely transparent. But we are ready to show greater transparency and make clear for the whole world that the steps of the Islamic Republic of Iran are completely within international frameworks. The sanctions are unfair, the Iranian people are suffering, and our (nuclear) activities are legal. These sanctions are illegal and only benefit Israel.
Iran's president-elect was speaking after his historic election victory.

Raleigh TimesRaleigh Times: Raleigh News Report in online newspaper format
The Raleigh Times is essentially a local Raleigh newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for Raleigh, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets.
The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy.
We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding
of the news we deliver.
Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news.
We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of Raleigh, North Carolina, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the Raleigh Times.
A North Carolina couple, who were married for 61 years, died just hours apart on the same day, this week.
Tommy Greene always told his family that he didn't think he could live one day without his wife, Bea, and it seems that their love was true, the New York Daily News reported.
Bea, 78, died at 6:50 a.m. on Friday, ending a six-month battle against cancer, while her husband Tommy, 79, died from cardiac arrest within seven hours of her death.
The Rock Hill resident was surrounded by some of their five children, eight grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren as he passed away.
Rev. Dave Kiehn, of Park Baptist Church, said that when a pal asked Bea what Tommy would do if she died before him, she replied that she would take him with her.
Tommy, who served in the Army during the Korean War, met and wed the love of his life when they were just teens. (ANI)
