While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • We were so consumed with the elections - and the deluge of tweets that popped up in response - that we forgot to welcome Beyonce to Instagram! Our apologies, Queen B. Love the new cut and color. [Beyonce's Instagram]
  • Both Courtney Robertson and Emily Maynard have moved on from their respective "Bachelor" breakups, but it seems only Emily's figured out that it might be the show that's the problem. She's reportedly now dating Nascar truck racer Jason White, and Courtney's said to have picked up a Nascar name too .... Emily's old flame, Arie. [Us Weekly/HuffPo]
  • It's not another million, but the 344,000 copies of Taylor Swift's "Red" was still enough to keep the country pop star in the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200. [Idolator]
  • And just like that, the Nicolas-Cage-in-"Expendables 3" hopes have been dashed. [Deadline]
  • Mariah Carey was so moved by the election results, she felt the need to sing. And not just any song, either: She made up a brand new one in tribute to the president.

    Thanks , I have recently been looking for information about this topic for a while and yours is the greatest I have found out so far. But, what about the bottom line? Are you sure about the source?|What i don't realize is in truth how you're not actually much more neatly-preferred than you might be right now. You are so intelligent.

    u Death casts a frightening shadow over us because we are entirely helpless in its presence. We can struggle with other enemies – pain, suffering, disease, injury – but strength and courage cannot overcome death. It has the final word. Only one person can walk with us through death's dark valley and bring us safely to the other side – the God of life, our shepherd. Because life is uncertain, we should follow this shepherd who offers us eternal comfort.u Death casts a frightening shadow over us because we are entirely helpless in its presence.

    u In ancient Near Eastern culture, at a banquet it was customary to anoint a person with fragrant oil as a lotion. Hosts were also expected to protect their guests at all costs.

    Your goodness and unfailing kindness shall be with me all of my life, and afterwards I will live with you forever in your home.

    He lets me rest in the meadow grass and leads me beside the quiet streams. He gives me new strength. He helps me do what honors him the most.

    Even when walking through the dark valley of death I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me, guarding, guiding all the way.

    Your goodness and unfailing kindness shall be with me all of my life, and afterwards I will live with you forever in your home.

    Because the Lord is my Shepherd, I have everything I need!

    He lets me rest in the meadow grass and leads me beside the quiet streams. He gives me new strength. He helps me do what honors him the most.

    Even when walking through the dark valley of death I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me, guarding, guiding all the way.

    u When we allow God our shepherd to guide us, we have contentment. When we choose to sin, however, we go our own way and cannot blame God for the environment we create for ourselves. Our shepherd knows the "green pastures" and "quiet waters" that will restore us. We will reach these places only by following him obediently. Rebelling against the shepherd's leading is actually rebelling against our own best interests. We must remember this the next time we re tempted to go our own way rather than the shepherd's way.

    u Death casts a frightening shadow over us because we are entirely helpless in its presence. We can struggle with other enemies – pain, suffering, disease, injury – but strength and courage cannot overcome death. It has the final word. Only one person can walk with us through death's dark valley and bring us safely to the other side – the God of life, our shepherd. Because life is uncertain, we should follow this shepherd who offers us eternal comfort.

    u In ancient Near Eastern culture, at a banquet it was customary to anoint a person with fragrant oil as a lotion. Hosts were also expected to protect their guests at all costs.

    • @Name

      Gee, I wonder why Romney didn't go to the Jersey Shore? Maybe because Christie didn't want him there. The President did exactly what a President should do. When there is a disaster, it's the President's job to make sure that these governors get exactly what they need to manage through the disaster. Romney is just a citizen, nothing more. He had no clout to get anything done. As far as being a better man, that's not what the American people said when they voted.

    D@mn, & y'all thought I was annoying lol. The day of mourning has passed. Now back to work for thr Real Americans. We've got plenty to do figuring out how the Democratic system failed, & taking steps to ensure it wont happen again. I did my part fighting the good fight. I This election proved facts & truth can be swept under the carpet by a liberal media shltstorm. Nobama walked over the bodies of the downtrodden, the beaten, & the dead for the Great Jersey Photo-Op. He used the hurricane as an oppurtunity to benefit his agenda, & the liberal media played this country like a cheap violin with it. I did my part to put the truth out there, & though we lost the war this time, I won my battles. No one on these blogs were able to refute the facts I stated. All they could do is issue personal attacks at me &/or blame Bush, hardly furthering their party's agenda. I owned these blogs from a political standpoint, the liberals merely stood in my shadows. Hence from this point on, my screen name will reflect this.

      You are such a joke! You are no better than that fat bag of gas, Rush Limhog. I've reputed your so called facts for months now. The funny thing, you touted the same old misinformation and untruths that your party spouted. Too bad for you that the truth is easily researched, and all your blow hard facts were wrong. That's the problem with you republicans, you don't believe in research or science. Thank god you won't be able to take this country back 50 years. The American people have sent a clear message. We don't want to go back to Bush's failed and destructive policies. And as far as the hurricane goes, yeah he planned that! What a jerk you are! What, you are mad because the President actually went & worked with those governor's to get their recovery moving? You mad because Christie,your hero, praised the President' efforts? Apparently, he appreciated it. What he did was what any President should do. Let's harken back to Katrina. "Great job, Brownie", remember that? Bush sucked on that disaster, remember? You republican's have such selective memories. I know Sukkman that you aren't going to let your feelings go, but this is an entertainment blog. Nobody wants to read your political nonsense. I only respond when I see you putting your biased and usually wrong information out there. How about you just let it go, and get back to putting entertainment comments out there? The election is over. Here's something to chew on for the next 4 years, though, Hillary 2016! Oh, bet your blood pressure just shot up!

    u In ancient Near Eastern culture, at a banquet it was customary to anoint a person with fragrant oil as a lotion. Hosts were also expected to protect their guests at all costs. God offers the protection of a host even when enemies surround us. In the final scene of this psalm, we see that believers will dwell with God. God, the perfect shepherd and host, promises to guide and protect us through life to bring us into his house forever.

    You provide delicious food for me in the presence of my enemies. You have welcomed me as your guest; blessings overflow!

    Your goodness and unfailing kindness shall be with me all of my life, and afterwards I will live with you forever in your home.

    The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.
    He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

    Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death (or through the darkest valley),
    I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

    You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
    You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

    Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,
    and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

    Because the Lord is my Shepherd, I have everything I need!

    Even when walking through the dark valley of death I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me, guarding, guiding all the way.

    u When we allow God our shepherd to guide us, we have contentment. When we choose to sin, however, we go our own way and cannot blame God for the environment we create for ourselves. Our shepherd knows the "green pastures" and "quiet waters" that will restore us. We will reach these places only by following him obediently. Rebelling against the shepherd's leading is actually rebelling against our own best interests. We must remember this the next time we re tempted to go our own way rather than the shepherd's way.

    u Death casts a frightening shadow over us because we are entirely helpless in its presence. We can struggle with other enemies – pain, suffering, disease, injury – but strength and courage cannot overcome death. It has the final word.

    Even when walking through the dark valley of death I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me, guarding, guiding all the way.

    u When we allow God our shepherd to guide us, we have contentment. When we choose to sin, however, we go our own way and cannot blame God for the environment we create for ourselves. Our shepherd knows the "green pastures" and "quiet waters" that will restore us. We will reach these places only by following him obediently. Rebelling against the shepherd's leading is actually rebelling against our own best interests. We must remember this the next time we re tempted to go our own way rather than the shepherd's way.

    u Death casts a frightening shadow over us because we are entirely helpless in its presence. We can struggle with other enemies – pain, suffering, disease, injury – but strength and courage cannot overcome death. It has the final word. Only one person can walk with us through death's dark valley and bring us safely to the other side – the God of life, our shepherd. Because life is uncertain, we should follow this shepherd who offers us eternal comfort.

    u In ancient Near Eastern culture, at a banquet it was customary to anoint a person with fragrant oil as a lotion. Hosts were also expected to protect their guests at all costs.

God, the perfect shepherd and host, promises to guide and protect us through life to bring us into his house forever.

    u Death casts a frightening shadow over us because we are entirely helpless in its presence. We can struggle with other enemies – pain, suffering, disease, injury – but strength and courage cannot overcome death. It has the final word. Only one person can walk with us through death's dark valley and bring us safely to the other side – the God of life, our shepherd. Because life is uncertain, we should follow this shepherd who offers us eternal comfort.

    u In ancient Near Eastern culture, at a banquet it was customary to anoint a person with fragrant oil as a lotion. Hosts were also expected to protect their guests at all costs. God offers the protection of a host even when enemies surround us. In the final scene of this psalm, we see that believers will dwell with God. God, the perfect shepherd and host, promises to guide and protect us through life to bring us into his house forever.

    Because the Lord is my Shepherd, I have everything I need!

    He lets me rest in the meadow grass and leads me beside the quiet streams. He gives me new strength. He helps me do what honors him the most.

    Even when walking through the dark valley of death I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me, guarding, guiding all the way.

    u When we allow God our shepherd to guide us, we have contentment. When we choose to sin, however, we go our own way and cannot blame God for the environment we create for ourselves.

    You provide delicious food for me in the presence of my enemies. You have welcomed me as your guest; blessings overflow!

    Your goodness and unfailing kindness shall be with me all of my life, and afterwards I will live with you forever in your home.

    The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.
    He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

    Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death (or through the darkest valley),
    I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

    You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
    You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

    Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,
    and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

    Because the Lord is my Shepherd, I have everything I need!

    Even when walking through the dark valley of death I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me, guarding, guiding all the way.
