Hillary Clinton is apparently a Parks and Recreation fan

For what it’s worth, she also asked Hanley to buy skim milk for her tea and to remind her to bring more tea cups into the office from home.

The email was a minuscule part of the roughly 7,000 pages of correspondence posted on the State Department’s website Monday night. Some were more intrigued with Clinton’s affinity for The Good Wife given the plot. Read more…

In Alaska, John Kerry warns of bleak future filled with 'climate refugees'



ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Speaking at a State Department conference on Arctic climate change in Anchorage on Monday, Secretary of State John Kerry warned that the impacts of global warming that are being seen throughout the Arctic are a “harbinger” of more damaging changes that will sweep across the globe unless policy makers take urgent action to cut emissions of planet-warming greenhouse gases.

Standing in front of the foreign ministers of Norway, Denmark, Finland and Sweden, as well as representatives from the European Union, Britain, Spain, France and Germany, among other countries, Kerry said the current migrant crisis in Europe may pale in comparison to a climate change-induced mass migration event.

Calvin Harris is really into being MrTaylor Swift, whether that involves defending her honor to ex-boy band members or cat sitting

He wasn’t at the VMAs last night because he knows better than to crash girls’ night. Also, her Scottish love had a gig in Glassgow, because he is a DJ in addition to being a boyfriend. But his heart was in LA while his lady premiered her video, gave a surprise performance and took home Video of the Year

Motorola's new Moto 360 smartwatch leaks on Twitter



Sport versions of the second-gen Moto 360 smartwatch have leaked on Twitter, adding two more models to Motorola’s already roster of Android Wear watches

The watches show up in what look to be white, orange and black rubber straps. It’s not yet clear if you’ll be able to swap out bands if you want to class-up your sport version. The sportier Moto 360 will launch in November, but the second-gen “regular” Moto 360 will come out in September, according to Twitter leaker Upleaks
