Fans of the British science-fiction TV series "Doctor Who" have gotten another treat as a second trailer of its ninth installment has been released, allowing them to take a peek into what the Doctor has in store for them this year.
Although the new trailer is only a minute long, it showed enough material to keep fans speculating until its return to TV on Sept. 19, 2015. The trailer revealed few new hints as to the mysterious role Maisie Williams will be playing in her highly expected guest appearance. According to AV Club, showrunner Steven Moffat claims that Williams is a brand new character in the "Doctor Who" saga. The "Game of Thrones" actress is also seen standing next to the fire-breathing lion man, making her role even more enigmatic.
There are lots of other returning villains shown in the new trailer as well including the Daleks, the Zygons, and the Doctor's Time Lord nemesis Missy. While the first trailer showed Peter Capaldi's 12th rocking a guitar at a rock concert, the second one revealed him also riding horses, jumping out of window, and of course, running with his ever loyal comrade Clara. more >>

An Italian Catholic priest and his church are offering Christian couples willing to have a third child the equivalent of $2,200 in Euros to help increase the country's dwindling population of native Italians.
The money is being offered by Father Stefano Bimbi of the parish of Staggia in Tuscany, and it can only be received after the couple has baptized the child. The couple must have also been married in the Catholic Church and have to be native Italians, according to TheLocal.it.
Bimbi hopes the money will help parents "with the courage to accept the gift of a child." He also said the Church does not have a large amount of money for the initiative, but he promised that it would continue until all the funds run out. more >>
