This prompted his entry into the fashion industry, where he gained early work as a hair and make-up artist on titles such as The Sunday Times.

It also looks at how Gran Turismo is having an impact on actual racing itself, and encouraging others to get into the sport…

Posted on 30 Aug 2014 at 03:03AM

Drew Edwards, who on Thursday committed to become the third member of Ed Cooley’s 2015 recruiting class, is expected to add some depth to what is a very thin backcourt group for the Friars.

Providence remains active with other players for the 2015 class. One is Justin Robinson, a Virginia point guard who may be favoring PC and Virginia Tech. PC is also pushing hard for Davon Dillard, a 6-foot-5 scoring wing from Indiana.

This article was originally published by The Wrap on March 13, 2014.

By L.A. Ross and Tony Maglio

LOS ANGELES ( - Love "The Walking Dead," but hate "SportsCenter"?

Too bad.

Cable providers pay only a fraction as much for AMC — the network that airs TV's top-rated drama — as they do for ESPN. And they pass their fees on to you, the consumer.

Many consumers are worried that bills will only go higher if Comcast, the country's biggest cable provider, is allowed to buy Time Warner Cable.

The average cable bill in the United States has increased about 4.5 percent annually over the past 15 years to more than $90 today, according to the…
