The day's most popular stories

The five most popular stories on, according to NewsPulse.

Farmville, squared:  Facebook, the world's largest social networking company, is providing each of its 500 million users with an e-mail address as part of a revamped messaging system that integrates with various types of communications.

Pat-down putdown: The Transportation Security Administration repeated Monday that everyone getting on a flight must be screened. The statement was in response to a video showing a California man in a dispute with airport security officials. The most powerful summation of the man's viewpoint is his saying, "If you touch my junk, I'll have you arrested."

This Old Corolla-sized House: Fuyuhito Moriya is 39.  He still lives with his mother, but get this - in a house that's built on 30 square meters. That's the same as the size of a parking space for one car.

Petraeus warns Karzai over Afghanistan exit remarks: In what may be one of the most significant breaches between Afghan President Hamid Karzai and the Obama administration, Gen. David Petraeus personally warned Afghan officials over the weekend the U.S.-Afghan partnership could be "untenable" if Karzai wants U.S. troops out of Afghanistan prematurely.

Z's the hard way: The harder you “work” at trying to sleep, the more elusive those sweet dreams become, a sleep expert says. So how to get some quality shut-eye? Special glasses that block blue-spectrum light may be the ticket, because research has shown that light in that wavelength (450-490 nanometers) is the most potent stimulator of neurotransmitters that promote wakefulness.

  3. is it only me?

    why is there no link on mobile to comment about things actually happening within the united states? like the percentage of starving americans. i have an idea... perhaps we can spend american tax dollars on americans for once instead of the rest of the world. as a child i was taught to help those in need. but never put strangers above the basic needs of your family. and yet the most popular news is rediculous gossip and problems that other countries need to learn to take care of themselves. and for those of you whom i am sure will comment, i am a former marine wife, single mother of two toddlers, would like to go to college but i am not broke enough or rich enough, i am over-qualified for any job worth having, cannot afford daycare, and barely make my bills each month. more than half the people i know from various states are in the same boat. so how about we americans hand americans a freakin paddle! i am so tired of watching my family and friends die for freedom we take from thier families and give away!
