dear abby: when my daughter and her family come to visit, they are very messy. they have a 3- and a 4-year-old and two large, long-haired dogs. i can deal with the children’s messiness — but the dogs, no. i agreed to let them bring their dogs if they cleaned up after them, but it hasn’t happened. the dogs shed terribly. the hair needs to be vacuumed daily. they don’t practice it at home and don’t do it here, even after being told the dog hair is everywhere in my house. we are 70 and active, but a lot of cleaning must be done when they leave. i especially don’t like it around food. i told my husband i have decided to tell them they can no longer bring their dogs here. he goes around and tries to clean up after them so i won’t get upset instead of letting them take responsibili...

the high-schoolers in the cw’s riverdale are likely among the most culturally literate teens in tv history. given the speed with which the likes of veronica (camila mendes) and jughead (cole sprouse) can spit out references to mad men and blue jasmine, they’d probably be delighted to find themselves in the middle of a john hughes movie. and that’s exactly what happens in riverdale #2, the second issue of archie comics’ series based on the show (which, of course, is originally based on long-running archie comics characters).written by a team led by riverdale showrunner roberto aguirre-sacasa and illustrated by a team of artists including joe eisma, riverdale #2 picks up in the aftermath of a food fight gone wrong. as punishment, principal weatherbee rounds up archie, bett...

"economically, it has become better. earlier, it was only about fashion and a few iconic, symbolic shows. the working pattern, too, has become more professional, and the creativity quotient has gone up, but so has the competition. in 1997, we used to deliver one episode a week. now, you have to deliver an episode every day," says rakhi, who's part of a daily soap on tv. from a comic character to one with grey shades, the actor has experimented with roles, but sweety remains close to her heart. ...

rome, wis. — the laurentide ice sheet did quite a number on wisconsin.as it advanced from the north, it created glacial lake wisconsin, at 550,000 acres about four times the size of modern-day lake winnebago, the wisconsin state journal (http://bit.ly/2q42clc ) reported. as the green bay lobe of the glacier melted, a massive crack formed that rapidly drained the lake to the south, creating the dramatic rock formations of the wisconsin dells and the towering bluffs along the lower wisconsin river.the old lake bed remains, along with piles of sand and a spectacular opportunity — hiding in plain sight for the past 14,000 years — that could pump hundreds of millions of dollars into the local economy.mike keiser, one of the country's most accomplished golf course developers, wants to buil...

it went beyond the deadline but the writers guild of america and the alliance of motion picture and television producers came to terms on a new contract early tuesday, defusing the threat of a strike crippling the film and television industry. the sides shook hands 90 minutes after the previous contract expiration deadline passed. the wga had vowed to strike tuesday if a deal was not in place. the guild's instant "pencils down" policy had meant that shows that work on a quick-turnaround — notably day-time soap operas and late-night talk programs like "the tonight show starring jimmy fallon," "the late show with stephen colbert" and "jimmy kimmel live" — would be out of topical material immediately. if ratified by its members, the tentative deal will cover its television and film writer...

'the man from u.n.c.l.e." reviews: henry cavill and armie hammer lack chemistry in guy ritchie's stylish caperalthough it’s not exactly true to its period, guy ritchie’s big-screen version of “the man from u.n.c.l.e.” is more in love with the european flair of the mid-1960s than, say, his “sherlock holmes” movies are with victorian london, which is to say that, while ritchie’s movies are always exercises in style, “u.n.c.l.e.” is at least an exercise in the right kind. style is, in fact, one of the movie’s primary concerns, as henry cavill’s napoleon solo and armie hammer’s ilya kuryakin (playing roles originated in the 1960s tv series by robert vaughn and david mccallum) are as likely to butt heads over which tie works with which suit as matters of cold war politic...
