Are you a marathon runner who also enjoys a good beer? Samuel Adams has created a brew just for you - Boston 26.2 Brew.
Boston Beer Co. created the limited edition beer, which is only available in Boston, at the behest of the Boston Athletic Association (BAA), the operator of the famed Boston Marathon. The brewer developed Samuel Adams 26.2 Brew with marathon runners in mind, adding less alcohol and more salt.
“In terms of flavor, you’ll enjoy light cereal notes from malted and unmalted wheat, rounded out by a spicy, pepper character and soft mineral quality from a touch of salt,” Samuel Adams says of the commemorative beer. “The result is an unusual and delicate brew that’s full of flavors to discover and worth crossing the finish line for.”

There’s no denying it. People love puppies and people love miniature anything. We bring you the best of both worlds today. Meet Beyonce, the tiniest puppy in the world weighing in at only four ounces! There’s a reason for the name and no, it is not to offend the pop star. This little cutie has cheated death several times in her short life, so naming her after the woman behind the song, “I’m a Survivor,” seemed fitting!

As the 100th anniversary of the Titanic sinking approaches, National Geographic has released striking, never-before-seen images of the doomed ship.
The images, which appear in the April edition of National Geographic magazine, show the Titanic as it rests on the ocean floor today. The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution took the HD images in 2010 using state-of-the-art robotic vehicles. The vehicles snapped hundreds of photos per second and then stitched the images together to make large HD photos. The results, as you can see on the magazine’s website, are fascinating.

When a series of mysterious booms began plaguing the town of Clintonville, Wisconsin Sunday night, residents of the small town were curious and bemused. However, when the noises continued into Tuesday and Wednesday, amusement and curiosity quickly turned into annoyance and fear.
"My husband thought it was cool, but I don't think so. This is not a joke," Jolene Van Beek told the Associated Press. "I don't know what it is, but I just want it to stop."
The noises, which residents say sound like distant thunder or fireworks, are so loud that many residents have fled from their homes in pajamas. The booms shake homes and rattle dishes, though they have yet to cause injuries or any major property damage. However, residents worry that could change.

There’s a new Twilight teaser trailer afoot. It’s only 10 seconds long, but that’s enough for Twihards to get a glimpse of vampire Bella running through the forest, her trademark clumsiness gone, and Jacob telling Bella that he didn’t expect her to look so much like herself after becoming a blood sucker. Fans can also sigh over Edward gripping Bella’s hand and marveling at how the two of them are now the same temperature. Check the teaser trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 above.
A full-length trailer will debut in front of The Hunger Games later this week. Fans are hoping to catch a glimpse of Bella and Edward’s child, Renesmee (perhaps with an “imprinted” Jacob following her around, dreaming of their future life together?), as well as other scenes featuring Bella’s newfound vampire talents. What would you like to see?
