NEW ORLEANS -- This Sunday, Malcolm Stewart and his father will spend their first Father's Day together in almost four decades. "I didn't have a Father's Day," Stewart said. "It was a blank date, you know. In my mind I just thought he was going to die in jail." His father, Malcolm Alexander, was convicted of rape in 1980. He was sentence to life in prison with no chance of parole. But Louisiana inmate number 93124 was innocent, and DNA evidence finally proved it. Last February he walked out of prison, to his family and freedom, after 38 years behind bars. "It's like that first taste of candy, and you realize how good it is," Alexander said. "As long as there was a breath, I always thought there was a chance." He said it's been a hard life without his family. "You're living without love," he said. "There is no love in the institution." As for Stewart, he was just 2 years old when his father went to prison. "You go to your friend's house and they have their dad and it's like, 'Wow … [Read more...] about A father and son finally get to celebrate Father’s Day together after 38 years apart

It wasn’t until 1979 that Richard Nolle first defined the supermoon, which is now a widely-used term. The astrologer explained that the phenomenon is “a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90 per cent of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit.” Based on Nolle’s theory, the moon would have to be 226,000 miles away from the Earth to be considered ‘super’. Because of its relatively close proximity to the Earth, the celestial body’s surface appears a lot bigger when a supermoon occurs. When is the next supermoon 2018? According to Nasa, the next supermoon in 2019 will fall on January 21, 2019. There was also a supermoon on the night of January 1. For the best view of the supermoon, make sure that you're as far away from light … [Read more...] about What is a supermoon, when is the next one in 2018 and how often do they occur?

Sign up here. IN 1993, I WENT ON my first tropical vacation. OK, it was Bermuda, so it was subtropical, but that did nothing to dampen my excitement. During the flight, my anticipation grew as I looked over the brochure from the travel agent showing the inn where my girlfriend and I would be staying as part of our prepaid package. The coral-colored, white-roofed Palm Reef Hotel featured balconied waterfront rooms and provided British-style afternoon tea service.When we checked in, I tried to mask my disappointment at how much the Palm Reef appeared to have aged since its glam photo shoot for that brochure. So what if the lobby furniture was shabby and some of the walls were crumbling? I reminded myself that we would be spending most of … [Read more...] about The right way to complain when a business does you wrong
