This may not surprise anyone aged 18 to 34 but according to U.S. Census data, if you're in that age bracket, your life differs wildly from your parents. Gone are the steady jobs and home ownership of yore. Gone too is married life -- more 18-34 year-olds live with their parents than with a spouse. The U.S. Census Bureau report found that the extent to which young people reached milestones like living alone was "tied to economic security." ... The study compared the 18-34 year old age group with young adults in 1975, their parents' generation. Back then, eight in 10 people were married by 30. Now, young people wait longer. By the age of 45, eight in 10 are married too.

Shia LeBeouf's latest stunt is to spend a month isolated in a cabin in Finland's remote Lapland region with his only communication with the outside world coming via text message to visitors to a Helsinki museum.

The term "stingray" is like "Kleenex" -- in that it's a brand name that became so prominent, it's used to describe any similar product. The federal government tends to call these devices "cell-site simulators," and they're also known as IMSI catchers. Whatever you call them, they share a handful of things in common: They're illegal for civilians to use; they're expensive, ranging from some $40,000 to more than half a million dollars if you include accessories; their legality is still being figured out in our court system; and they vacuum up cell phone locations. Strikingly, only a handful of states, including California, Utah, Virginia, and Washington, actually require a warrant for their use, and to date there is no federal law that regulates them. read more
