My Little Pony meets the BRONIES

As children of one generation start having kids of their own, toy makers often re-release vintage toys to capitalize on nostalgia.

That's why, in the past few years, we've seen the return of a number of popular characters from the 1980s. Which brings us to tonight's number: 1987.

That was the year that the TV show "My Little Pony n' Friends" went off the air. Almost 25 years ago.

But the ponies are back. FULL POST

Weak jobs numbers means more 'doom and gloom,' but is there a silver lining?

A flat jobs report was released Friday. Only 80,000 jobs were created in the month of June. The unemployment rate remained at 8.2%. President Barack downplayed the report and his opponent Mitt Romney blames the President and points to his plan for job creation.

There's always 'doom and gloom' when the jobs report doesn't meet expectations and falls flat. But, is there a silver lining?

CNN's Erin Burnett sheds a light on other economic indicators that may give a different picture on the economy.

Is the FAA cutting corners? Watchdog says the industry is next 'too big to fail'

A frightening thing is happening while you're flying, according to a new book.

At a time when flights are fuller than ever, the airline industry relies on regional carriers to fly more than half of its routes and outsources 71% of its maintenance. Are the airlines cutting corners at the cost of your safety? And is anybody keeping watch?

Banning McDonalds, the only food available at the Olympics

A few weeks ago, we reported that McDonalds will be the only branded food available at the 2012 London Olympics. Suffice it to say, McDonalds told us they were "surprised and disappointed" with our comments.

McDonalds wrote to OutFront saying, "choice and variety on our menu, with items like grilled chicken, yogurt, oatmeal, fruit salad, smoothies and wraps. And of course, we're proud of our iconic burgers."

McDonald's says it's offering healthy options at the summer Olympics. But does it add up?

Jenny Jones, London Assembly Member is calling for the Olympics to ban Mcdonalds at this year's games and Katherine Mangu-Ward, Managing Editor, Reason Magazine come OutFront.
