Ice Bucket Challenge Helps Fund Breakthrough in ALS Research!

Ice Bucket Challenge Helps Fund Breakthrough in ALS Research!

Remember the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that made waves two years ago? Well, money donated through raising awareness has contributed to a major scientific breakthrough!

University of Massachusetts Medical School’s Project MinE was able to discover a new gene after the ALS Association donated $1 million dollars from the Ice Bucket Challenge.

The gene has been identified as NEK1. Scientists are hoping the gene could provide clues and answers for potential treatment and understanding of the horrible disease.

“The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge enabled us to secure funding from new sources in new parts of the world,” Bernard Muller, founder of Project MinE and ALS patient, said in a statement (via NYDN). “This transatlantic collaboration supports our global gene hunt to identify the genetic drivers of ALS.”

Donald Trump Asks Russia to Hack Hillary Clinton's Emails

Donald Trump Asks Russia to Hack Hillary Clinton's Emails

Donald Trump has asked Russia to hack Hillary Clinton to find any of the 30,000 missing emails from her security questioning.

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Donald said at an event on Wednesday (July 27). “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

“This has to be the first time that a major presidential candidate has actively encouraged a foreign power to conduct espionage against his political opponent,” Jake Sullivan, Hillary Clinton‘s chief foreign policy adviser said (via the New York Times). “This has gone from being a mattter of curiosity, and a matter of politics, to being a national security issue.”

Donald also posted the plea to Russia on Twitter.

Walking Dead's Jeffrey Dean Morgan: It's Negan's World Now

Walking Dead's Jeffrey Dean Morgan: It's Negan's World Now

The Walking Dead‘s Negan is front and center on the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s new issue.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan – the actor playing the villainous Negan – opened up about the upcoming season in a very Negan-esque way: “It’s a reset on The Walking Dead world. It’s f—ing Negan’s world now.”

“What you’re going to see in the first half of this season is Negan wreaking havoc,” Jeffrey added. “And some of your characters that you’ve grown to love are not going to be on the show anymore, and it’s going to end badly for them. It’s going to be a whole new beginning for The Walking Dead. Really, we’ve taken the show and just flipped it upside down. It’s a different show now. It’s going to have a different feeling. You’re going to see your favorite characters in a position that they’ve never been in before, which is super vulnerable and victimized.”

Kristen Stewart Confirms She's Dating Alicia Cargile: 'Finally I Can Feel Again'

Kristen Stewart Confirms She's Dating Alicia Cargile: 'Finally I Can Feel Again'

Kristen Stewart has officially confirmed that she is dating Alicia Cargile in a new interview.

The 26-year-old actress opened up about their relationship with Elle UK.

“I think also right now I’m just really in love with my girlfriend. We’ve broken up a couple of times and gotten back together, and this time I was like, ‘Finally, I can feel again,’” Kristen said.

She also talked about dating “a guy,” which could presumably be her ex Robert Pattinson. “When I was dating a guy I was hiding everything that I did because everything personal felt like it was immediately trivialised, so I didn’t like it. We were turned into these characters and placed into this ridiculous comic book, and I was like, ‘That’s mine. You’re making my relationship something that it’s not.’ I didn’t like that. But then it changed when I started dating a girl. I was like, ‘Actually, to hide this provides the implication that I’m not down with it or I’m ashamed of it, so I had to alter how I approached being in public. It opened my life up and I’m so much happier.”

Kristen and Alicia have been linked for years, but never officially confirmed the news.

Shonda Rhimes Corrects GMA's Report That 'Scandal' Is Entering Final Season!

Good Morning America‘s Lara Spencer made such a huge goof this morning on the morning show, it made Shonda Rhimes spit out her morning coffee!

While showing a photo of the Scandal cast returning to work on social media, Lara said, “A little bittersweet however, because it has been said that this is also going to be the final season.”

Luckily, Shonda quickly responded on Twitter saying that is not true!

“Whoa, @GMA: I never said this was the final season of #scandal. Way to make me spit out my coffee!,” Shonda wrote.

Lara quickly responded on air, saying, “We said that this was the last season of Scandal. Shonda has weighed in, she just tweeted, and she said we made her spit out her coffee. My apologies. She said she has an ending in mind, but that ending is not happening this next season. So, thank you, Shonda…. We can all breathe, because as you guys know, it is my absolute favorite show. So correction: Ending in mind, but when that ending is happening we don’t know. So, to be continued on the Scandal scandal. More Scandal. So Shonda, thank you, I’m sorry I made you spit out your coffee.”

“Thank you for the correction, @LaraSpencer — you have my back!❤️” Shonda added after.
