Fans of "One Tree Hill" were treated to a photo fest of their cast reunited in an event. Held in Montreal, active social media users won't miss the event as the stars posted numerous pictures over Instagram. The cast members present include Sophia Bush, Torey Devitto, Stephen Colleti, Paul Johansson, Bethany Joy Lenz, Antwon Tanner, and Daphne Zuniga. Unfortunately, Chad Michael Murray, James Lafferty, and Hilarie Burton were not able to make it.
It's been 12 years since the drama series first premiered, but it made an impact on fans even today. It is evident that the cast members have formed a special bond. The Montreal reunion is not the first — in fact, over the past year, former One Tree Hill co-stars were seen together more than once. Back in October, Lenz, Bush, and Burton attended a One Tree Hill convention in Paris, wherein they snapped a photo on Instagram. Then in March, the inaugaral EyeCon One Tree Hill convention was held in Wilmington, North Carolina, where a number of cast members graced their presence in front of their fans.
With these frequent reunions, rumors persist that the cast is reuniting for more than just a photo op. According to MediaMass, reports are circulating that The WB plans to release a revival of the hit series in 2016. This could be what fans have been waiting for. The ending of the series left fans unsatisfied and have been waiting for a reunion. Some even hoped for a One Tree Hill movie. But while there is no confirmation yet, the chance of a reboot is still possible. Back in May, series creator Mark Schwahn told Glamour that he's happy for the success gained by the cast, and if time permits, "...get 'em all in one place, and I'll be there!" more >>
A total solar eclipse is expected to pass over the United States two years from now, where Americans will get a chance to see a phenomenon that scientists claim is like no other. Its path directly falls only on the United States, which is why it is being dubbed as the "Great American Eclipse."
The previous total solar eclipse happened 38 years ago on February 26, 1979. Alhough its effect passed over five states, spectators hardly saw anything as the cloudy weather obstructed the view. With the upcoming eclipse, more Americans will get to witness the phenomenon of a total solar eclipse.
A solar eclipse happens when the moon creates a shadow or the umbra as it passes over the sun. Contrary to popular belief, astronomers say that solar eclipses are not rare happenings. What does not happen very often is the frequency on where a solar eclipse passes, or what is known as "the path of totality." Some people who follow solar eclipses around the world can find themselves in the most obscure places. Rare is the opportunity for a total solar eclipse to occur in a populated country like the United States. more >>
As torrential flooding spanned across various regions of Pakistan this summer and washed away thousands of homes, Christians in Kasur have received very little humanitarian aid and have been left to starve if they don't convert to Islam or become modern-day slaves in order to receive help from Muslims or the government.
Wilson Chowdhry, the president of the British Pakistani Christian Association, told The Christian Post that there are more than 60 Christian families in the western Pakistani region of Kasur that have lost their homes and all worldly possessions when the deluge hit this summer and washed their mud homes and everything inside them away.
While Muslims in the region have benefited from temporary shelter, clean water and food provided by Pakistani government agencies and Muslim charities, Christians have largely been without those bare necessities and medication needed to fight illnesses that can occur after flooding. more >>
Geoffrey Robinson, a retired senior bishop in Sydney, Australia, has told the Royal Commission into institutional responses to child sexual abuse that Pope John Paul II failed to show leadership and could not deal with the child sex abuse scandals that have rocked the Roman Catholic Church for decades. Robinson claimed that Pope Francis has also failed to demonstrate the needed leadership.
"If I am honest, he handled abuse poorly," Robinson told the inquiry, referring to John Paul II, who served as Vatican leader between 1978 to 2005, at the height of the crisis.
After undergoing surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff last May, Filipino pugilist Manny Pacquiao decided to forego doctors and rehabilitation programs in order to rely on God and the sea for healing.
Pacquiao, the 36-year-old boxer and politician, further aggravated a longstanding shoulder injury during a loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr., in a May 2 bout. Days later, Pacquiao underwent surgery and recently revealed that his healing process after the operation had nothing to do with the work of doctors.
"I'm fine. It's God's work," Pacquiao told The Philippine Star. " I never saw a doctor. I never did rehab. All I did was to swim in the sea as often as I could. The salt water healed my wound." more >>
The members of British boy band One Direction have decided to go their separate ways after the release of their fifth album this year. It is planned to be at least a year long, starting on March 2016. The announcement was made shortly after their new music video "Drag Me Down" created a buzz among fans. The video was the first appearance of the group without former member Zayn Malik, who left early this year.
According to People, a source tells them that the decision to take on a hiatus was mutual. After years of working together, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, and Liam Payne felt they needed to focus on their own individual pursuits. Another source of US Weekly also say that the decision is in no way influenced by the departure of Malik. They have been planning about parting ways for some time, even before Malik decided to leave. It is reported that Styles is interested in getting into acting and trying a solo career. Meanwhile, Payne wants to try his hand in songwriting, Horan making a solo album, and Tomlinson participating in a reality TV series.
Despite this, the boys reassure fans that they are not splitting for good. In a series of tweets, Horan clarifies that what they are planning is temporary and will be back to share new music with their fans. Tomlinson also thanked fans on Twitter and promised them that they "are not going anywhere." more >>
