Here’s something to consider as we approach the holiday weekend … You’re not imagining it — time really does fly when you’re having fun. A study from Ohio State found that our brains perceive time as going by faster during positive activities. And, of course, when it’s a negative activity – like a dreaded work meeting – the brain perceives time as going more slowly. In other words, your three-day weekend is going to feel like it lasted one day. So enjoy!... [Read Full Story]
Camila Cabello’s singing voice didn’t get her the audition that landed her in Fifth Harmony — her tears sealed the deal.
Simon Cowell remembers Camila’s first day on the X Factor set, where she was thought to be an also-ran. Cowell says she wasn’t even meant to audition.

DRACULA DAY – Even if it’s hot outside, maybe consider wearing a turtleneck today.

She died of pancreatic cancer in 2012.

BROTHER’S DAY – Your brother may have tormented you as a child and, on at least one occasion, locked you in a room filled with snakes or farts, but today we celebrate him anyway. DID YOU KNOW?… 80 percent of Americans have at least one brother or sister.
SCAVENGER HUNT DAY – Invented in the 1930s by a New York socialite named Elsa Maxwell; she created them as a party gag for the rich and famous. ‘Hunters’ would go out in search of crazy and sometimes illegal experiences like ‘punching a cop in the face’ or ‘terrorizing goats’ at a petting zoo. These days, people search for random stuff like acorns, feathers and other boring crap in the backyard.
NATIONAL ESCARGOT DAY – ‘Escargot’ (ESS-car-go) is the French word for “snail.” It’s also what they call it when you cook shelled snails with garlic, butter and wine. They’re a great source of protein, iron and magnesium – but first, you gotta get over the fact you’re eating snails.
