JOHN SCHNEIDER from "Dukes of Hazzard" posted a YouTube rant about TV Land yanking reruns of the show because the car had the Confederate flag on it. He called it an "error" in judgment, and wishes we could all just watch TV in peace. But golfer BUBBA WATSON owns one of the original cars they used, and says he's planning to paint over the flag and put an American flag there instead.

The U.S. won its record third Women's World Cup on Sunday (July 5th), beating Japan 5-2 in Vancouver, Canada, for the American team's first World Cup title since 1999. Midfielder Carli Lloyd turned in an incredible performance that helped her win the Golden Ball as player of the tournament, scoring three times in the first 16 minutes as the U.S. staked an early 4-0 lead, getting the first hat trick in a Women's World Cup final and the fastest one in World Cup history, for both men's and women's teams. [Look in "Last Night's TV Audio" for sound from the game.]
The other scorers for the U.S. were Lauren Holiday and Tobin Heath.
Hope Solo won her second straight Golden Glove as top goalkeeper of the tournament.

Here are four tips from a professional photographer on how to get better photos of fireworks this weekend . . .


1. Turn your flash off. If you don't, everything over ten feet away will end up underexposed. If you want to take a photo of someone with the fireworks behind them, set it up so their face is lit by a light behind you.



2. Don't just photograph the sky. Photos of fireworks with nothing in the foreground tend to be boring, so try to get the skyline in there too. Or try something like a shot of your kid from behind while they're watching.


3. Turn off the HDR feature. It stands for "high dynamic range," and it makes your camera take three quick photos at different exposures, then combines them into one image to make the lighting look more natural.


A lot of cell phone cameras have an HDR feature now, but it works best with still images where nothing's moving. If you use it with fireworks, they'll just look blurry.


4. Take photos with a long exposure. That's where the shutter stays open a few seconds longer and lets more light in. But not all camera phones let you do it, and you pretty much have to use a tripod to make it work.

Can't the government let us enjoy ANYTHING anymore? They ruined smoking, they ruined football, they ruined carbs . . . and now they're trying to ruin FIREWORKS.


A new study by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration found that fireworks are terrible for your health.


When one explodes, tiny particles 30 times thinner than a human hair are left in the air. And if you ingest too many of them, there could be short and long-term effects . . . especially if you have lung problems.


You might cough, have shortness of breath, or have an asthma attack. But they ultimately might lead to a heart attack, a stroke, or EARLY DEATH if you have heart or lung disease.


The number of firework particles in the air peaks from 9:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M. on July 4th . . . but usually they're all gone by noon the next day. So if you have lung issues, the researchers say you might want to stay indoors on the night of the 4th.
