On Sunday, Hillary Clinton officially announced that she's running for president in 2016. She broke the big news via a video called "Getting Started," saying, "Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times, but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top. Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion." Next, she's expected to make her way to Iowa, and along with her more low-key announcement, this time around, the former secretary of state will kick off her campaign by participating in smaller events with voters rather than larger rallies.

Fear not. Even if you haven’t read the book, there’s no reason you can’t take pleasure in the movie. We’re happy to explain what all the excitement is about.
Back in 2012 you’d see them everywhere. People — predominately women — focused on their e-readers, tablets or paperbacks featuring grey ties on the covers. They were lapping up author E.L. James’ naughty romance novel Fifty Shades of Grey, a literary sensation that introduced many to the erotic world of Bdsm (Bondage, Discipline and/or Domination, Submission, Masochism).
As the big-screen adaptation of the book reaches theatres, we realize some of you still don’t understand what all the fuss is about.
So sit back, do as you’re told and let us educate you on the finer points of Fifty Shades of Grey. »
