From The Huffington Post

"As snowstorm Juno rolled across the Northeast earlier this week, Web traffic on adult site PornHub increased more in New Jersey than in any other state in the area. The site's data analytics team said in a blog post that Web traffic in New Jersey, which wasn't actually hit that hard by the storm, shot up 26 percent higher than average on Tuesday, when many of the region's residents were stuck indoors."

From The Daily Beast

"Despite having been described by the Nazi ambassador in Vienna as 'the worst obstacle to German National Socialism in Austria,' Hildebrand remains virtually unknown today, even to historians of the period. This makes the recent publication of his memoirs and writings against Nazism—entitled My Battle Against Hitler—all the more momentous. It is not often that we discover a 'new' hero destined to count among the greatest figures in the previous century’s fearful struggles against tyranny and genocide."

From Between Two Worlds

"I want to suggest there are some good, textual reasons—in the creation account itself—for questioning the exegesis that insists on the days as strict 24 hour periods. Am I as certain of this as I am of the resurrection of Christ? Definitely not. But in some segments of the church, I fear that we’ve built an exegetical 'fence around the Torah,' fearful that if we question any aspect of young-earth dogmatics we have opened the gate to liberalism. The defenders of inerrancy above show that this is not the case. And a passion for sola Scriptura provides us with the humility and willingness to go back to the text again to see if these things are so."

From CBC News

"The Christian university had asked the court to review the society's decision to deny accreditation to its graduates. It argued the law society overstepped its jurisdiction and failed to comply with the Charter of Rights and Freedoms."

From The Wall Street Journal

"The population of U.S. prisoners over the age of 44 grew more than 8% annually from 1991 to 2011—four times the rate of prisoners under the age of 35, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the research arm of the Justice Department. The proportion of inmates 54 years or older nearly tripled in that time, from 3% to more than 8%."

From DalyFocus

"After a few years of Super Bowl commercials featuring Dad as the butt of too many jokes, it seems like this year may be in for a refreshing change. There are two pre-released game day ads that show fathers in a positive light."

From The Spectator

"After the battering he has received, I doubt if Cumberbatch will take the trouble to argue for fairer treatment for ethnic minority and working class actors again. Pursed lipped prudes, who damn others for their sexist, racist, homophobic and transphobic language, while doing nothing to confront real injustice, are characteristic figures of our time. As characteristic are well-meaning people abandoning good causes because they cannot take the prudes’ condemnations."

"Perhaps most striking, 39 percent of the LGBT community said the marriage fight was taking focus off other issues of import to them."

From Christ & Pop Culture

"The lesson of Paddington—that real homes are defined by love and real families by care regardless of species—asks audiences to consider the ways we show God’s love in a world consumed by busyness and fear."

From BBC News

"Those who survived Auschwitz lived through one of the 20th Century's worst acts of hatred and inhumanity. Many of those still alive today were children in 1945 but they are elderly now and this may be the last significant anniversary where so many will gather."

From First Things

"The notion that women are rabbitlike 'breeders' who should produce as many children as possible is harmful and false—as is the common assumption that this idea originated in Christian circles. In fact, it has secular origins in the eighteenth-century Enlightenment."
