Several of Donna Summer's older hits play just as well today as they did when they were first released, but one in particular has been highlighted as a historical treasure. Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress has selected 25 songs that are at least 10 years old, and are also "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." Summer's 1977 smash "I Feel Love" is among them, as well as hits from Dolly Parton, the Sugarhill Gang and Prince.
This year's BET Awards will pass the mic to "Avengers" star Samuel L. Jackson, who's been tapped to host the July ceremony.

What happens when people stop being polite and start getting real? According to the last few seasons of MTV's "The Real World," they get drunk, hook up and make innumerable questionable decisions. What happens when strangers come to live on a family farm in rural Arkansas, grow their own food, give up modern-day conveniences and attempt zero waste? While it may not sound like a compelling reality show by MTV's standards, that's exactly the premise of the independent film, "The Garden Summer," which debuted to a sold-out crowd in Charleston, South Carolina, on April 16. It also premiered in Conway, Arkansas, on May 18.
Is the overuse of video games and pervasiveness of online porn causing the demise of guys? Increasingly, researchers say yes, as young men become hooked on arousal, sacrificing their schoolwork and relationships in the pursuit of getting a tech-based buzz.
Percy von Lipinski stood on a chair as he decorated his family's Christmas tree. While hanging a German glass ornament, he lost his balance and grabbed a branch, pricking his left hand on a pine needle as he regained his footing. Sounds pretty benign, right? At this point, Von Lipinski, 57, had no idea that the incident in 2008 would nearly cost him his entire hand -- and perhaps his life. What seemed like an insignificant injury resulted in a flesh-eating disease from necrotizing fasciitis, the same condition that's responsible for two serious cases in the United States that have recently risen to prominence.
The stands around the boxing ring were mostly empty and the bout was a mere three-round exhibition fight, but Dlandy Regalado Ajete battled as if a title was on the line. "If you want to be a great boxer in Cuba," he said, moments after being declared the winner, "you have to be willing to work hard and sacrifice." Regalado's drive isn't unique for Cuba. Boxing, along with baseball, is a passion that runs deep for many of the island's 11 million inhabitants.
It's one of the pivotal scenes in "The Social Network," a eureka moment that implied a parting of the clouds, a spotlight-like beam of sun and a soft chord of angel voices: "Eduardo, I'm not talking about a dating site," says a chiseled version of Mark Zuckerberg. "I'm talking about taking the entire social experience of college and putting it online."
For 585 days, Swiss adventurer Raphael Domjan braved storms, pirates and cloudy skies in an attempt to circumnavigate the globe on a boat propelled by nothing but sun beams. The boat, christened "Turanor" after a word meaning "power of the sun" in JRR Tolkein's "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, is Domjan's brainchild. As heavy as a whale and 30 meters long, it's adorned with enough photovoltaic panels to cover two tennis courts.
As families prepare for air travel this coming Memorial Day weekend, United Airlines won't be offering early boarding to families in coach with small children. Joining a handful of other carriers, United made the policy shift in late April with little fanfare.
Rather than getting ready to attract more tourists in its high season, Greece is headed toward the polls again on June 17. In the midst of domestic political uncertainty, more and more outside observers agree that "Grexit" -- the prospect of Greece leaving the euro -- has become inevitable. Yet to read the May 6 election results or the first polls for the June election as evidence of Greek opposition to the euro -- or even to public and private sector reform -- is both simplistic and misguided. Given the choice, Greeks would pick Europe over their own politicians.
