The European Central Bank is coming under increasing pressure to do more to stem the strength of the euro, which is hurting exporters and keeping a lid on the region's recovery from recession. ECB President Mario Draghi is likely to face questions on what can be done to reduce the value of the euro when he faces lawmakers at the European Parliament on Monday. At around $1.36, the euro has come down from its 2014 high of just below the $1.40 mark in May. Even so, the currency remains well above its historic average. That's a problem for the region's exporters as they try to drum up business in the growing global economy.
After almost three years of hype, trade-show demos and breathless reviews from tech journalists, the long-awaited Oculus Rift finally has a release date. Its makers say the virtual-reality headset will ship to consumers in the first quarter of 2016, and they will begin taking pre-orders later this year. No price was announced. A post on Oculus VR's website said on early Wednesday, "In the weeks ahead, we'll be revealing the details around hardware, software, input, and many of our unannounced made-for-VR games and experiences coming to the Rift. Next week, we'll share more of the technical specifications here on the Oculus blog."
Happy birthday, George Clooney! This man is truly like a fine wine, only getting better with age. The Oscar-winning actor, who is married to the lovely London barrister Amal Clooney, is ringing in the big 5-4 today. With his chiseled jaw line, sophisticated style and picture-perfect smile to match, it's easy to see why the Money Monster star has been turning heads for years. Whether you fell for this previously long-haired hunk in 1990 for his Red Surf role or later swooned over his countless humanitarian efforts, it's understandable why we all need our George Clooney fix at one time or another.
Who's that girl guy? It's Adele! To celebrate her 27th birthday this week, the "Someone Like You" singer dressed up in drag as one of her favorite music stars George Michael. The Grammy winner took to Twitter Wednesday to share a photo of her amazing costume. "Thank you for the birthday wishes I had a wonderful time! I was my hero x #gottahavefaith," Adele captioned the silly snapshot. In the pic, the Brit beauty is nearly unrecognizable with scruffy facial hair, a retro-inspired blond ‘do and aviator sunglasses on.
It's time for the Bachelor to hang up his dancing shoes. In Tuesday's dreaded double elimination, fan-favorite Chris Soules was ousted from the competition, along with Shark Tank star Robert Herjavec . But it looks like the dancing will continue for the former Bachelor as his fiancée Whitney Bischoff may be looking to follow his lead before their highly anticipated wedding. "I think she's probably going to start taking lessons," Chris revealed to E! News' Maria Menounos after Monday night's show. "I think she's gotten inspired by watching me. I'd love to teach her, but I don't think I'm capable of teaching at this point!" His DWTS partner Witney Carson hilariously agreed with him, before saying she would do the honors as their wedding gift.
The Mustang roared to life at a time when there was no shortage of icons in America — The Rolling Stones were selling out shows across the country, Muhammad Ali was taking American sports by storm — yet the Ford pony car instantly became a symbol of American culture. Now, more than fifty years later, new icons have emerged in popular culture. However, the Mustang has remained a standard in American sports cars.
