  • It’s turning out to be a summer full of long-lost books being released.

    First it was Harper Lee’s manuscript, “Go Set a Watchman,” a prequel to the much-beloved “To Kill a Mockingbird.” And now it’s a recently discovered new work from Dr. Seuss.

    That’s right, Dr. Seuss (also known as Theodor Seuss Geisel) is returning with a new book, “What Pet Should I Get?,” 25 years after his last published work, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”

    Geisel’s widow, Audrey Geisel, found the manuscript in 2013, along with black-and-white illustrations done by Dr. Seuss himself.

    The new book features some familiar faces, such as the children from the classic book, “One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.”

    “What Pet Should I Get?” comes out on July 28, and we can’t wait to see what pet these kids get!

  • Ashley Graham is a woman on mission. The plus-size model wants to be the next Heidi Klum.

    The 27-year-old already made history as the first plus-size model to grace the pages of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. But in a recent interview with the Coveteur, she revealed that she hopes to one day fill the shoes of her idols Kathy Ireland, Tyra Banks, Cindy Crawford and of course Heidi.

    “Those girls, I mean I’ve watched their careers and they have just blossomed into extraordinary and amazing things,” Graham said. “I can’t wait to be the curvier version of all of them.”

    Judging by her stunning new photo shoot with the Coveteur, she’ll be one of the greats before she knows it!

  • Back in 2005, NASA launched the New Horizons spacecraft, sending it on a 4.67-billion-mile journey to take pictures of Pluto.

    After nine and a half years, New Horizons is sending back pictures!

    The new images of the elusive dwarf planet captured by the spacecraft have scientists and civilians back here on planet Earth buzzing with excitement.

    Everyone is pretty impressed, but not Neil deGrasse Tyson. He tweeted:

    The director of the Hayden Planetarium is simply not psyched about this up-close and personal look at Pluto.

    "It would be totally awesome if it was a much bigger planet " he told Stephen Colbert.

    Guess for Neil deGrasse Tyson, bigger is better.

  • Amazon Prime day is over, and social media is doing what social media does best – expressing its thoughts and opinions on the matter.

    Shoppers took to social media to post about the discounts they were seeing on the site.

    If tweets are like Yelp reviews, many people probably won't be coming back for the shopping sales day marketed as “better than Black Friday”.

    Many people are saying that the sale reminded them of a giant garage sale — a lot of discounts on unwanted items.

    Reviews were rough. People were tweeting about the discounts on Pop-Tarts and the endless offerings of defunct electronics.

    Others thought the whole thing was an experiment:

  • Some are calling it corporate espionage. A SeaWorld Entertainment employee reportedly posed for years as an animal rights activist for PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).

    PETA says that a California man going by the name of Thomas Jones had been participating in the organization’s activities to gather information for the animal theme park and to incite illegal activity among SeaWorld protesters.  

    Jones was even arrested at the 2014 Rose Parade in Pasadena, Calif., for trying to stop a SeaWorld float. According to the website, Jones was released without charges, and his name never appeared on arrest sheets regarding that incident.

    PETA’s investigation of “Thomas Jones” has revealed that he is actually Paul T. McComb, a human resources employee at SeaWorld San Diego.

    SeaWorld itself alleges that PETA members have infiltrated its company in the past and has even used this job posting to prove the group’s recruiting tactics.
