The LG G3 recently hit the market and appears to be more of a Galaxy Note 3 competitor than the S5 based on its size.
The device features state of the art specs that rival what many say is the greatest device Samsung has ever created. The Galaxy Note 3 seems to still be at the top of the food chain, even with the launch of new smartphones such the HTC One M8 and Galaxy S5 this year. It was ahead of its time in the fall of 2013, and now could be entering a time when it has finally met its match. So how does this G3 stack up against Samsung's behemoth?

Emily Letts, the former actress and abortion counselor who's best known for posting a video on Vimeo and YouTube that allegedly shows her having a surgical abortion, says state laws requiring abortion clinics to obtain parental consent before performing abortions on minors are "dangerous." Letts also asserts that parents shouldn't be "forced" to be involved in their adolescent daughters' healthcare decisions.
Letts, 25, works at the Cherry Hill Women's Center in New Jersey, and was awarded a cash prize from a pro-abortion group for submitting a 3-minute video of herself allegedly having an abortion as an entry in the "Abortion Stigma Busting" contest. The competition was co-organized by the Abortion Care Network and the 1 in 3 Campaign, a project of Advocates for Youth, which advocates for adolescents' access to abortions without parental notification or consent.
In an interview with The Christian Post, Letts defended her abortion video as being real, and not fake, as some people have suggested; and added that she made the video because pro-life advocates are "misinforming women about abortion." more >>
Close to 2.2 million people who signed up for Obamacare have inconsistent data issues that could lead to problems with coverage, a report on Wednesday revealed.

Scientists in the UK announced Tuesday that they will be ready to create babies using genetic material from three people in two years, once the government makes it legal, while the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is deliberating whether to allow clinical trials to create these genetically modified babies.
In techniques commonly referred to as mitochondrial replacement, scientists would use eggs from two women and sperm from one man to treat deadly mitochondrial diseases, according to a BBC report.
Mitochondria, explains scientists with the UK's Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority, "are small structures present in cells that produce much of the energy required by the cell. They contain a small amount of DNA that is inherited exclusively from the mother through the mitochondria present in her eggs. Mutations in this mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) can cause a range of rare but serious diseases, which can be fatal." more >>
The Bible is the "word of truth." It's mankind's user manual. It's the blueprint, even in suffering, for a joyful and fulfilled existence in this life, and an incomprehensibly glorious eternity in the next. The total truths and precepts inherent within the Judeo-Christian scriptures are both timeless and universally applicable to all people and peoples across the globe, be they Christian, Jew or pagan.
Obviously, neither pornography nor pornography use, in the modern sense, was around during ancient biblical times. Still, since all time is biblical time, and since the Bible transcends time and space, God, in His boundless love and wisdom, has given us specific truths that directly apply to the use and abuse of modern pornography in all its ugly forms.
Studies indicate that at least 70 percent of American men and 30 percent of American women regularly view online pornography. The numbers aren't much better among Christians with a 2011 ChristiaNet survey finding that 50 percent of Christian men and 20 percent of Christian women regularly use porn. more >>
