1.        Harrison Ford isn’t doing much acting these days.  ***  In fact, you can often find him on the golf course.

2.        A study at the Boston University of Medicine shows that by exercising in his 40’s, when man hits 60 he’ll have stronger cognitive powers and less physical brain shrinkage.  ***  And that’s good, because then he won’t have to buy new hats.

3.        The Ringling Brothers Circus has announced that it is discontinuing all elephant acts.  ***  For sale:  Large assortment of heavy duty shovels.

4.        Mark Cuban and Ann Coulter will star in “Sharknado 3,” another air-borne shark sequel with more blood, guts and gore. ***  As in the first two movies, the victims will be the people who buy tickets.

5.        The four Kardashian ladies negotiated a $100 million deal with E! network.  ***   Well, keeping up with the Kardashians just got a little tougher.

6.        A survey of 736 college students shows that Facebook posts often make people envious, which can lead to severe depression.  ***  And then they get even more jealous because they aren’t as depressed as their friends are.

7.        Yahoo! celebrated its incorporation anniversary on Monday, just one day after Justin Bieber celebrated his birthday.  ***  Yahoo! Inc. turned 20 and the other yahoo turned 21.

8.        Leonard Nimoy, who just died at age 83, often used the phrase “Live long and prosper.”  ***  That wasn’t a Vulcan greeting; it was his “Star Trek” contract’s clause on residuals.

9.        In Sun City, Arizona, local citizens joined the chase for two escaped llamas that were running down city streets.  ***  But it turned to chaos when all the walkers and wheelchairs started hitting the speed bumps.

10.     The Department of Homeland Security has developed a plan to operate with fewer employees in case Congress lets funding run out.   ***  For example, airport screening will be streamlined;  travelers will only need to take off one shoe.
