        As a new mom, country star Carrie Underwood knows a thing or two about multitasking.

    The Walking Dead: Is It Time for Cool Hand Rick? - Huffington Post 2 hours ago

        Spoiler alert: The following contains spoilers if you have not yet watched Season 6 Episode 7 of The Walking Dead. My last commentary, "The Walking Dead Spoiler: Glenn Lives," caused a stir, because people took it literally when I used the word "spoiler" in the title. I am not affiliated with the show, and any fan's guess is as good as mine. But given that I have an IMDb filmography profile--and per the agreement, it is really bad form to list credits for programs in which you have not, or will not, appear, I noticed actor Steven Yeun, aka Glenn Rhee, was credited for most of the remaining Season 6 episodes after the Season 6 Episode 3 ("Thank you") dumpster / walker-swarm cliffhanger. A few days later, Yeun's credits for future Season 6 episodes were removed. I took the position that IMDb had inadvertently tipped us off to Glenn's escape. It turns out that Glenn managed to evade the walker mob--feasting on Nicholas's corpse--by shimmying under the dumpster, killing several zombies, and waiting it out protected by a barrier of Eau de Walker. Apparently, The Walking Dead continues to play games both with the show's credits and with actors' IMDb profiles. This week, Yeun's IMDb profile credits him for Season 6 Episode 7, last Sunday's episode, and nothing in the future. But we already know Glenn is alive and will appear again. Will a Plot Twist Give the Show a Hand? The Walking Dead is running out of plot ideas. All roads lead to either a destroyed head or zombification. On the road to nowhere, we get to see how people react to living in a perpetual state of siege. Do they turn on each other or cooperate? Do they turn inward and isolate themselves, or do they form bonds? Do they grow in character, or do they devolve to bestiality? We need a new plot twist. So far, we're told that death without brain destruction produces walkers. Bites--and potentially scratches--result in a fatal illness after which the corpse reanimates as a walker. But walker-blood-stained-knife-nicks, and open wounds splattered with walker blood, do not seem to lead to illness and walkerdom. In Season 5, Sasha nicked Abe with her blood stained knife. In Season 6 Episode 3 ("Thank you"), the same episode as Glenn's cliffhanger, Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln, cut his hand while ending a walker. Rick glanced at the wound more than once, as if he were considering potential amputation to save himself from turning. But he did not become ill. He did not even get a garden variety, yet potentially serious, bacterial infection. Could these cuts have stimulated an immune response, similar to a vaccination? What if Abe or Rick suffers a glancing bite, but nothing bad happens? Meanwhile, how would the rest of the characters react without the knowledge that the bite doesn't mean lights out? And how would the others react when they eventually realize Rick and Abe have developed bite immunity? When people realize there is hope for vaccination, will they think differently about their lives? Even if the plot makes room for it, vaccinations are tricky. Done incorrectly one might not develop walker immunity. Too much, and one would succumb to illness and become a walker. Even if a vaccination is successful, one can still be torn apart by walkers and die horrifically--not to mention death delivered by feral humans who don't have decayed brains as an excuse. What about Judith or Maggie's Unborn Child? We're told everyone has the virus. Supposedly, that applies to baby Judith, too. Or does it? Has any baby born after the virus become a crawling walker on The Walking Dead? In Dawn of the Dead, Luda, played by Inna Korobkina, turns just before she gives birth to a zombie infant. But what if Judith, and other post-apocalypse infants born to still-living mothers, are immune? To what lengths would people go to protect children who have a chance--however slim--of surviving to see a world without walkers? It is time for The Walking Dead to up the stakes. Note: This is my second and final commentary on The Walking Dead dedicated to my young godson. Happy Thanksgiving to my favorite walker fan! -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    Don't Buy Your Rich Friends A Tablet For Christmas - Huffington Post NEW!

        Tablets like the iPad and Amazon Fire might seem like the perfect holiday gifts, but think twice: New research suggests your friends have one already, especially if they're wealthy. The Pew Research Center on Wednesday released an analysis revealing that 60 percent of Americans who make $75,000 or more own a smartphone, computer and tablet. Overall, one in three Americans own all these devices. You probably could've guessed that yourself, but the news arrives at an interesting moment for consumers: Tech companies are doing their best to offer new takes on the tablet in order to win your attention and cash. While Pew's research indicates that many Americans are likely to own all three types of devices, companies like Apple, Samsung and Microsoft are trying to sandwich those categories together. Apple's new iPad Pro is marketed as a productivity beast that could replace your laptop, Samsung's gigantic Galaxy View tablet could be your next TV and Microsoft's Surface Book lets you rip the display right off the keyboard for a touch-screen experience. If you're trying to chill in bed with some Netflix, you could probably hold your iPhone 6S Plus a little closer to your face and survive without an iPad. Why the focus on tablets? Well, tablets have a less obvious purpose than phones or computers. If you're a smartphone user, you probably can't imagine life without your handset. At the same time, computers are productivity machines that speak for themselves. As smartphone screens get bigger, tablets become less relevant because they're really just giant phones. If you're trying to chill in bed with some Netflix, you could probably hold your iPhone 6S Plus a little closer to your face and survive without an iPad. Pew's new report indicates that of people who own just one device, only 7 percent make that device a tablet. Indeed, an annual financial report published by Apple in September shows that net sales of the iPad have declined since 2013, first with a 5 percent drop in 2014 followed by a 23 percent drop this year. Meanwhile, iPhone sales are ballooning. You could think of this as a moment of transition for the technology you see on store shelves: A substantial portion of American consumers already own the devices they need, and companies are trying to make the tablet relevant with quirky new devices that turn them into something else entirely. Of course, traditional tablets are sticking around for now. But for a sense of how they're valued, consider this: Amazon offers a Fire tablet that's cheaper than a new video game. Traditional tablets are officially in stocking-stuffer territory. And like most stocking-stuffers, they're probably bound to gather dust. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    World's Best Son Chris Hemsworth Paid Off His Parents' Debt - Huffington Post NEW!

        Not only is Chris Hemsworth a great actor, a great husband and a great dad, he's also the world's best son.  In an interview with The Independent, Chris' younger brother, Liam Hemsworth, revealed that the "Thor" actor paid off all of his parents' debt. And what's more, he didn't tell them he was doing it -- it was a surprise.  Liam explained that Chris called their dad to tell him to look at his bank account:  "He [his father] called my brother Chris back and said: 'I don’t know how to feel. Since I left home I have had debts and I thought I’d be paying them off until I died and have this weight hanging over me, and now to have them completely cleared.' They are so happy now and able to spend more time with us, I would love to be able to do something for my parents like that." And Liam's not so bad himself. The "Hunger Games" star is an ambassador for the Australian Childhood Foundation, along with his big bro. Their parents worked with the organization to support children going through trauma, and now Liam and Chris are using their celebrity status to give the campaign an extra boost of star power.  "If you want to be a good person who adds to society, you have responsibility. That is something I take very seriously," Liam explained.  Clearly, selflessness and humility run in the Hemsworth family.    Also on HuffPost:  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    These Two People Could Not Be More Unimpressed By Tom Hanks Rapping - Huffington Post 1 hour ago

        A white-haired Tom Hanks appeared on "The Graham Norton Show" last week alongside Scottish actor-director Peter Capaldi and English actor-comedian David Walliams. Perhaps due to some ill effects of the hair dye, Hanks -- sans encouragement -- reenacted the rap he and Dan Aykroyd had invented in 1987 to promote the pair's buddy-cop flick "Dragnet."  Throughout the performance, which elicited supportive cheers from the audience, co-guests Capaldi and Walliams were unmoved. Capaldi seemed particularly skeptical of Hanks' spontaneous recital. Seriously unimpressed. Upon Hanks' finale, the pair managed a polite applause.   Also on HuffPost: -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Superior Court Commissioner Jane Godfrey also ordered Stamos to attend 52 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and a counseling session as part of his sentence in the misdemeanor case. Blair Berk, an attorney for the "Full House" star, entered the plea Tuesday on Stamos' behalf. Berk and Stamos' publicist Matt Polk declined comment after the hearing. The 52-year-old actor was briefly hospitalized in June after Beverly Hills, California, after police arrested him on suspicion of driving under the influence. Police have not identified the substance they suspect Stamos had taken, and it was not addressed in court. The actor currently appears on the Fox sitcom "Grandfathered," and he is working on a reboot of "Full House" for Netflix. If Stamos successfully completes the sentence, the case can be dismissed and expunged, Berk said.

        Researchers at the University of Georgia have developed a model for evaluating a potential new strategy in the fight against drug-resistant diseases. The strategy would take advantage of parasite refugia--host populations not treated with drugs, thereby serving as 'safe zones' where parasites don't develop drug resistance. When parasites from refugia mix with their drug-resistant counterparts in the general population, they could reduce the incidence of drug-resistance overall, which may help prolong a drug's effectiveness.
