  • Beck's Fox show ending

    NEW YORK — Glenn Beck later this year will end his Fox News Channel talk show, which has sunk in the ratings and has suffered from an advertiser boycott.
    Fox and Beck’s company, Mercury Radio Arts, said Wednesday they will stay in business creating other projects for Fox television and digital, starting with some documentaries Beck is preparing.
    Beck was a quick burn on Fox News Channel. Almost immediately after joining the network in January 2009, he doubled the ratings at his afternoon time slot. Fans found his conservative populism entertaining, while Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert described Beck’s “crank up the crazy and rip off the knob” moments.

  • Bob Dylan jams in a peaceful Vietnam

    HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam — Bob Dylan, whose anti-war anthems made him the face of protest against a war that continues to haunt a generation of Americans, finally got his chance to see Vietnam — at peace.
    The 69-year-old Dylan took to the stage in the former Saigon on Sunday, singing such favorites as “A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall” and “Highway 61 Revisited.”
    Only about half of the 8,000 seats were sold to a mix of Vietnamese and foreigners who danced on the grass in the warm evening air as Dylan jammed on guitar, harmonica and the keyboard at RMIT University.

  • Danne DeBacker exhibits compulsive creativity

    Anyone walking into Danne DeBacker’s house might think, “This man is compulsively creative.” There are a few reasons for this thought. For one, he replaced the door to his studio with one that looks like the opening of a submarine.
    He also invents games like the “cube eater,” which consists of a cube with a big, toothy mouth.  Kids toss numbered cubes into the mouth and learn how to add.
    In addition, when he turned nine, his birthday present was a series of traditional Japanese watercolor lessons. He has homemade trains and guitars all over his house.
