Here Jen snoops around her neighborhood to investigate why everything is too cheap at the gas station.
Glen Creason has worked at the Los Angeles Public LIbrary for 35 years. Can you imagine stay at one job for that long??? Creason says he can because he learns so much every day as a map librarian -- about the history of Los Angeles and its many hidden treasures that he discovers through maps. We specifically talk to Creason about the John Feathers map collection which doubled the LA Public Libraries map archives in a single day! Who was John Feathers and why did he collect 100,000 maps?
A new law in New York will now protect interns from harassment in the workplace. But how will these interns pay for legal action. We have a few ideas.
Over 100 cases of the measles can be traced back to the magical world of Disneyland. Children who just want to ride Splash Mountain are getting fevers and rashes instead. The outbreak has also spawned an outbreak of discussions -- over the vaccination wars. Should parents be obligated to vaccinate their children? The outbreak most likely wouldn't have spread to this degree had these children been vaccinated...but it also wouldn't have started without patient zero. Which person (or cartoon) started this big 'ole mess? Who truly showed us it's a small world after all and this disease is highly contagious? Homemade News got an exclusive interview and answered your questions.
Animals like the luwak are joining forces with other creatures to help us during our most desperate times of climate change.

By, Sylvia Abdullah works at a foundation. By night, she's a feminist superhero.

Sylvia spoke with us in our studio while visiting LA.
Last year, Lance Scott Walker and bestie Peter Beste published Houston Rap Tapes an oral history of the abundant rap scene in Houston. As Lance says, the book is more than the music. It’s about the neighborhood and the vast city limits of Houston that shaped it. H-TOWN BITCHES.

Baur Au Lac has a proud history of hospitality. They've been one of the leading hoteliers in Switzerland, their service is bar none, and their accommodations and impeccable.

Human screenshot Edward Snowden has done it again! He’s back for a second year, popping up onscreen at SXSW. Last year’s appearance was on the schedule, but this week he took delighted attendees at the conference by surprise. His telepresence shows up all over the place, wearing a button-down shirt and no pants. He’s been wheeled into the New Yorker festival and last year’s TED conference. Last week officials wheeled his telepresence to the polls to cast a vote in the Israeli elections. On Saturday, Secretary of State John Kerry spoke from Switzerland about negotiating Iran’s nuclear program. In his weirdest appearance yet, Edward Snowden also spoke, accidentally showing up on a nearby television screen while brushing his teeth. The State Department is investigating how Snowden’s telepresence breached their press conference.

Hasna and the mosque are changing the perceptions of Muslim women -- but she's also changing the way we the media talk about Muslim women.
John Boehner secretly worked with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netenyahu to invite him to speak before Congress. Normally all of this business is done through the White House, but Boehner couldn't wait and did it behind Obama's back. Just like Regina George. And we have the e-mail to prove it in a Homemade News exclusive.
