Two Women on Wine: Bottle battles -- screw cap vs. cork

For baby boomers who remember the days of Boone's Farm and Blue Nun, screw caps on wine bottles have a long-standing stigma associated with cheap, soda pop wines. But as all things old are new again, the screw cap has reinvented itself as a superior closure that has caused even a few daring Frenchmen to sing its praises. Hard to believe, but true.

Review: 'Repo Men'

"Repo Men" makes sci-fi's strongest possible case for universal health care. In a world of the near future, where they still drive current cars, a giant corporation named the Union will provide you with a human heart, kidney, liver or other organ. Let's say a pancreas costs you, oh, say $312,000. No, it's not covered by insurance, but the sales guy says, "You owe it to yourself and your family." For a guy in need of a pancreas, this is an eloquent argument. Interest rates are around 19 percent.

Review: 'The Bounty Hunter'

I'm on the brink of declaring a new entry for Ebert's Little Movie Glossary: No comedy not titled "Caddyshack" has ever created a funny joke involving a golf cart. The only thing preventing me is that I can't remember if "Caddyshack" had golf cart jokes. In any event, if there is a golf cart, it will sooner or later drive into a water hazard. The funny angle here is that the filmmakers went to all that trouble because they trusted the audience to laugh.

Review: 'The Runaways'

"The Runaways," chronicling the rise and fall of Joan Jett's first band, easily could have degenerated into a movie-length music video, with Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning merely glam-rock poseurs.

Tammy Messina: Homework makes for a better America

There are many issues to be addressed in our nation today, including energy, economy and health care. And with each one, there is a broad spectrum of ideologies suggested to resolve the issue. To say that these ideological differences cause plenty of controversy would be a gross understatement.

The importance of beauty in everyday life

Not long ago, two interesting studies showed the power of beauty to influence human experience. Two researchers in Japan (Kurosu and Kashimura) did a study to test the correlation between aesthetics - how pretty or nice something looks - and how people rate the usability of the object.

Why I support Boydston

I read last Sunday's editorial ("All things considered, we recommend...," March 14) with amazement. It's not that The Signal editorial board recommended no changes for all three seats on the City Council, it's that the editorial board doesn't seem to understand how our City Hall actually works.

No stopping Valencia swim

Pope John XXIII launched Vatican II and then some

VATICAN CITY (AP) - On the night of Oct. 11, 1962, Pope John XXIII did something so natural that it's astonishing it was so revolutionary at the time. He came to the window of the Vatican's Apostolic Palace and spoke to thousands of candle-bearing faithful below - not in the arcane, scripted words of pontiffs past but in those of a father and pastor looking out for his flock.
