Ponting happy with Tait’s wayward brilliance

BANGALORE - Australia captain Ricky Ponting is prepared to tolerate Shaun Tait's waywardness if the fast bowler keeps taking wickets at the World Cup. Tait, who now restricts himself to one-day matches after an injury-plagued career, has a 'slingshot' action which can be hard for batsmen to face.

In fact, evidence linking an upbeat outlook and enjoyment of life to better health and longer life was stronger even than that linking obesity to reduced longevity,

‘Cougar Town’: Happy Big Present Day

Our favorite cul-de-sac crew returned last night to embrace their inner child (well, Jules' inner child) with a game of Sardines in a Can. After the gang's movie night got canceled, Travis told his wine-loving companions that a great way for adults to reduce stress levels is to embrace activities they loved as children.

And although I'm a little disappointed we didn't get to see Jules feel smart
