BEST DAY TO SHOP FOR GREATEST SAVINGS
You may prefer to shop on Sundays because it fits your schedule best or you choose Tuesday afternoons because it's less crowded. Maybe it's time to rethink your strategy and instead shop on the day that offers the best deals. What day is that? It depends on what you're buying. SmartMoney figured out the best days for the deepest discounts. That means that prices for the exact same item in the exact same store could be lower on Sunday than it is on Wednesday. Here is SmartMoney's advice on what to buy on which days:
Appliances: Prices for washers, dryers, ovens and refrigerators are about 1 percent to 2 percent cheaper on Sundays, which works out to about $10 saved on a mid-range model.
Groceries: While most grocery stores publish their weekly sales circular on Wednesdays, Sunday is the best day to shop. Clip coupons from Sunday's newspaper for more savings.
Personal Care Items: You'll find the best deals on toothpaste and deodorant at the drugstore chains on Sundays. You must go early to get the best deals.
Skirts and Dresses: Skirts sell, on average, for 77 percent off the retail price, while dresses are discounted, on average, 54 percent.
Cars: Cars are cheapest on Mondays as dealerships are more willing to negotiate. This holds true whether weekend sales were lackluster and they want to makeup for that or whether weekend sales were robust and they want to continue it.
Electronics: Computers, televisions, digital cameras and even video games are between 2 percent and 4 percent cheaper on Mondays.
Airfares: Since most domestic fares are posted on Monday evening, there is a scramble Tuesday morning to match prices. The number of cheap seats peaks at about 3 p.m. on Tuesday.
Clothing: Both brick-and-mortar stores and online retailers tend to begin their weekend sales on Thursday. You'll find the best deals and the most in-stock items. However, there are exceptions. See Monday.
Books: Books are 11 percent cheaper on Saturdays; they are priced at their highest on Fridays.
An idiotic father in Poland's Katowice-Pyrzowice airport places his kid on a luggage counter. Because the child has a center of balance like a pendulum, he slowly begins to lean forward. The inevitable happens. And a security guard jumps out of NOWHERE to snag him. It's some Calvin Johnson-worthy stuff. Seriousy—you think this is going to end in disaster because LiveLeak is where you might find a baby falling to his doom, but the security guard has hands.
At the :22 second mark, you see the baby handed off to his mother. Who then, presumably, beat the father to death.
Here are two more angles. (Thank youuuu, omnipresent airport security cameras.)
One man just revealed that he not only won $40 million in last May's Calgary lotto -- the largest lotto prize ever awarded in the Canadian city -- but that he could care less. He isn't planning on keeping a single penny of it! Instead, the former CEO of EECOL Electric will be donating his prize money to various cancer organizations in honor of his late wife, who died two years ago from lung cancer.
Tom Crist doesn't sound like the kind of man who feels comfortable giving interviews and posing for photos. The 64-year-old waited all this time before coming forward to announce his winnings to the media -- a lotto requirement if you win a big jackpot.
Admitting that he has done well for himself over the years and has enough money to take care of his four children, Crist's only plans with his lotto earnings is to deposit the money into a family trust fund and have it doled out to various cancer charities over the next few years.
The altruistic Canadian was married to his wife, Jan, for 33 years before she passed away from lung cancer in February 2012. She was only 57. Crist knows for sure that he is giving back to one treatment center called Tom Baker that he says cared for his wife throughout the six years she battled her disease. He and his children will select other charities in the next few years.

• Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson decided to go hunting instead of attending an interview with Barbara Walters
• The Robertson family told Walters it isn’t the first time Phil has opted out of a big event in favor of hunting
• The iconic newswoman said, "Tell him I have never been superseded by a duck before"
• The special will air Wednesday on ABC
It appears there are more important things than getting interviewed by the iconic Barbara Walters following the claims that Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson decided to go hunting instead of attending an interview with the iconic newswoman.
“Tell him I have never been superseded by a duck before,” Walters quipped during the special, according to a transcript of the interview obtained by FOX411. The special will air Wednesday on ABC.
“He would rather shoot ducks than talk to us, yes?” Walters mused.
Miss Kay attempted to explain her husband’s decision to the famed interviewer.
“Oh yes. Between, uh, November and January, I told him I didn’t ever plan to die then, because, he may not be at my funeral,” she said with a laugh.
The Robertson family told Walters it isn’t the first time Phil has opted out of a big event in favor of hunting. Jessica, Jep’s wife, also spoke to Walters alongside her mother-in-law.
“Well, he missed the birth of Jase, Missy’s husband, because he was in the duck line and he wouldn’t leave…” she recalled. “And so yes, he missed the birth of his son.”
Kay jumped to her husband’s defense, explaining that he was “very young and immature” at that time.
But they won't be the only ones Barbara will be interviewing on the TV special as the legendary newswoman will sit down with the “girl on fire” Jennifer Lawrence. Meanwhile, the queen of twerking, Miley Cyrus, and power couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West also made the list.

Shoppers struck by the urge to purchase Power Rangers action figures at 3 a.m. Tuesday are in luck: Toys R Us will stay open for 87 hours straight from 6 a.m. Saturday through 9 p.m. Christmas Eve.
The retailer is just one of many vying for precious consumer dollars this holiday season, having emerged from a lukewarm Black Friday weekend into the shortest Thanksgiving-to-Christmas stretch in a decade.
The Toys R Us store in Times Square in New York City will welcome guests for an unprecedented 566 consecutive hours, having opened at 8 a.m. Dec. 1 with plans to keep running through 10 p.m. Dec. 24.
Beyond the long hours, other Toys R Us locations are also tempting shoppers with price-matching programs, inventory updates through Christmas Eve and deals such as discounts on the Furby Boom toy.
The company, which last year kept most stores open for 88 hours in a row, said online orders placed by 9 a.m. PST on Dec. 23 with the express shipping option checked will be delivered by Christmas Eve. Customers can also choose to buy a product online and then pick it up in stores by 4 p.m. Dec. 24.
Kohl’s said it will keep its doors open for more than 100 straight hours for the first time. Shoppers can pick through the shelves from 6 a.m. Dec. 20 through 6 p.m. Christmas Eve.
The chain hopes to attract even more Americans by offering free gift boxes and access to a wider assortment of goods listed in digital in-store kiosks.
This year, Kmart stores will be open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Christmas Eve – six more hours than last year. Sears stores, however, will be open one hour less than in 2012, with shoppers welcome from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Target will serve shoppers from 7 a.m. to either 9 p.m. or 10 p.m. Dec. 24, depending on the location. The schedule, which is mostly unchanged from last year, also involves a 7 a.m. to 10 or 11 p.m. run Dec. 26.
John Mayer may be singing along with his love Katy Perry in their new duet, "Who You Love," but Mayer had the song in his head long before he met Perry and it wasn't his idea to cast her in the duet.
"I had this little chorus for years and it was, 'You love who you love,' and I thought that was always going to be a great thing someday," Mayer, 36, said on "Good Morning America." "A song that people could hear and feel that sort of permission."
It wasn't until Mayer played the song more recently for his record producer that Perry, 29, became a part of the picture.
"The very first thought was you can't do that and then the more I thought about just the music part of it, it made perfect sense, even if I didn't know Katy, it would have made perfect sense," Mayer said. "I went in the other room [and] called her phone."
Mayer and Perry, who first made headlines as a couple last summer, debuted the song's music video on "GMA." They star in the video alongside real-life couples who answered a casting call, as well as a mechanical bull.
"It's just so authentic," Mayer said. "There's nothing scripted in that video except putting a bull in the middle of the desert."
In the age of Twitter and Facebook, it's easy for the annual Christmas card to feel a bit dated.
Set to Will Smith's "Miami" (warning: it will get stuck in your head), "Christmas Jammies" includes standard Christmas card fare -- announcements about each family member's individual accomplishments, including (surprise!) mom and dad's new marketing and media company. Penn works as anchor for WNCN (he announces he's quitting mid-video, shortly after rapping about his vasectomy); meanwhile, Kim has experience in the entertainment industry.
So, yes, it is ultimately, a clear publicity stunt, albeit an effective one with very high production quality.
Since going viral, the video has been touted around the web as well as on Good Morning America and Fox and Friends. All of this web success, however, comes in the midst of a literal viral storm at home. Dad says on his blog that Kim and their daughter, Lola,have an actual stomach virus that is sort of keeping them from fully embracing the moment.
Hope you feel better soon Holdernesses -- and enjoy the time in your jammies too!
Beware: Google just made it easier for people to know if you’re opening their email messages.
The web giant announced a change to its popular Gmail service: Images embedded in emails will now be automatically displayed, saving users from clicking on a “display images” link and, Google claims, making “your messages more safe and secure.” But buried in the fine print, a different picture emerges.
The new setup also means that people and companies who send you email will be able to find out when you’ve opened and read their messages, because loading these images requires a call back to the sender’s server. That said, the sender still has to know how to rig their emails to take advantage of this, and that means that sophisticated corporations are far more likely to take advantage of this privacy hole than your friends and relatives. They’ll have to evade Google’s filters for “suspicious” content, and you’ll have to check your Gmail over the web — not via a local client — for this change to impact you. But it’s an important development.
Other email clients automatically load images, but Google’s change brings this to what is now the world’s largest service. The good news is that you can turn off the new change. But most people won’t know any better.
Here’s how Google phrases the issue with a disclosure in the last paragraph of a recently posted support document: “In some cases, senders may be able to know whether an individual has opened a message with unique image links. As always, Gmail scans every message for suspicious content and if Gmail considers a sender or message potentially suspicious, images won’t be displayed and you’ll be asked whether you want to see the images.”
In other words, Google will try to protect you from malware and scammers, but the new image-loading system can, by its very nature, leak information on your email reading habits. That’s because the images in question, the images that used to be regularly suppressed by Gmail and which will now be regularly shown, are loaded from remote servers and laid into emails constructed like webpages, using the HTML markup language.
Previously, Gmail took a stronger stance on privacy. For example, back when competitors like Yahoo Mail regularly attached users’ home IP addresses to their mail messages, Gmail left such privacy-eroding data out. So it’s sad to see Google taking a step backward — and being less than forthcoming about the implications. For bulk business emailers, this development is a big plus. For ordinary humans, not so much.
