Scott Rogowsky comes from a long line of law school grads — his dad, his mom, his uncles.As an undergrad at the Johns Hopkins University, he was perfectly prepared to follow suit.And then being funny got in the way.“I started doing standup at Hopkins. That sort of spurred the whole thing,” says Rogowsky, who proceeded to ditch the idea of law school, move back to his native New York and, after a few years on the periphery of the humor circuit, get a gig as host of a quiz show app called “HQ Trivia.”Now, 11 years removed from JHU, he’s still funny, he’s gotten surprisingly famous and he’s the jocular host of an addictive twice-daily quiz show. “HQ Trivia” regularly has about 1 million people staring at their phones at 3 p.m. and 9 p.m. EST, punching in the answers to trivia questions and, if they’re good enough and can answer all 12, splitting a pot of money with other human repositories of obscure — some might say … [Read more...] about Scott Rogowsky, host of addictive app HQ Trivia, got his start at Johns Hopkins
IN HIS FINAL INTERVIEW before the convention, Mitt Romney – discussing leadership styles and lessons – sketched for VandeHei and Allen what his Cabinet would look like and how he would run the White House. He said Obama ads had taken a toll on his likability, but quoted Popeye three times in dismissing the issue. (He invoked the same quote with Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.”) Find out what book made Romney cry. http://politi.co/OEqa5k --“Romney pledged to bring corporate order to the West Wing. He promised to issue a checklist for his first 100 days, similar to the printed scorecard he used in Massachusetts; treat his Cabinet like a board of directors; and try to restart the economy using the hands-on management style that made him hundreds of millions of dollars. Romney’s answers were the clearest window yet into how the lessons he gained in the corporate world would be applied to the presidency.

And he's been building his political and fundraising team ... [T]he Senator promises a decision by spring, but he's facing some internal pressure now to make his intentions known a bit sooner. They [need to know] by the end of March, top aides say, because the other candidates are getting so active. One ally involved in the deliberations sets the current odds at 60-40 in favor of Rubio running.” Story Continued Below EMAIL DU JOUR – A Dem pollster emails us on Rudy’s comments, with the subject line “Jeb’s Sister Souljah moment?”: “This seems like such a no-brainer.

If you or your family already find themselves home from work and school for the day because of bad weather, here are a few things you can do to stay entertained (and warm). (Photo by Philipp Guelland/Getty Images) Philipp Guelland/Getty Images If you or your family already find themselves home from work and school for the day because of bad weather, here are a few things you can do to stay entertained (and warm). Do some family-friendly baking: One way to keep kids occupied is with a slew of simple cooking tasks (cracking eggs, manning the mixing bowl) and the promise of sweets. Cooking Light has a roundup of "kid-friendly desserts," including gluten-free s'more bars, chewy caramel apple cookies and more. If you run through that list, the Food Network has another. And not having kids is no reason not to bake in bad weather: for company, just sub in the closet available roommates, family, friends or pets. (This advice applies to the rest of the list.) … [Read more...] about Home from school or work? How to entertain yourself and your kids
Eight years after losing a bitter Republican primary for governor and stepping away from California’s political scene, Steve Poizner said Monday that he will run again for the elected office he gave up in that contest — state insurance commissioner.This time, he won’t run as a Republican.“There’s no room for partisan politics at the Department of Insurance,” Poizner said in an interview, announcing the launch of a campaign to become the first independent “no party preference” candidate ever to win statewide office.The 61-year old former tech entrepreneur served as insurance commissioner from 2007 to 2011.Politically speaking, Poizner is part of the answer to a lingering piece of California electoral trivia. Poizner and former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger were the last two Republicans to win a statewide race. In the 12 years since those victories, the GOP’s share of the state’s registered electorate has plummeted. Party loyalists … [Read more...] about He once held the job as a Republican, but now Steve Poizner is making a no-party bid for California insurance commissioner

Let's be honest, 2017 was crazy. Apple came out with the iPhone 8 and 10, skipping the 9 and any meaningful new features. The President got into a war of words with North Korea and Lavar Ball. Taylor Swift graced us with a new record, but it wasn't a life-changing opus for which generations of families will base their lives on. It was weird. So what does pop culture have in store for us in 2018?The Instant Pot wasn’t just the trendiest kitchen gadget of the year it was “an entire economy and a religion". The device is a seven-in-one cooker that functions as a Crockpot, a pressure cooker, a yogurt maker, and more. Legions of fans adore the device, even though no one on this planet has ever made yogurt, as shown on that one episode of Beat Bobby Flay where the challenger didn’t even try to make a yogurt, and Chef Flay’s Chipotle-infused yogurt-ish concoction nearly killed judge / Phoenix chef Scott Conant.This year, look for the next … [Read more...] about 7 pop culture trends for 2018 that you need to know
