Derice Lambert places freshly wrapped and priced packages of ground beef at Todd’s Big Star in Tupelo on Wednesday. Meat prices are expected to rise this year, along with other food prices.
If you thought you spent more at the grocery store last year, it wasn't your imagination.

And you'll be paying even more this year.

A study conducted by agricultural and food industry consulting group FarmEcon said the average family of four paid more than $2,000 above expectations last year.

That represented an additional $162 billion spent on food in 2012.

25 signs American women are being destroyed by the sexual revolution and our promiscuous culture

Has the sexual revolution been good for American women? Not at all. In fact, when you look at the facts it becomes clear that the sexual revolution has been an absolute disaster for American women.

In the United States today, men have been trained to primarily view women as sex objects, and our culture has become exceedingly promiscuous.

As a result, the United States leads the world in teen pregnancy, there are 19 million new STD infections every single year, more than half of all children born to women under the age of 30 are being born out of wedlock and we are witnessing the systematic breakdown of the family unit in America.

And yet anyone that tries to teach our young women that they should dress modestly and keep themselves pure for marriage is severely criticized. Well, if all Americans actually did keep themselves pure until marriage, we wouldn't have nearly the problems with STDs, teen pregnancy and abortion that we do today.

The consequences of teaching our young women that they should be "free" to run around and sleep with a whole bunch of different men have been dramatic.

The following are 25 signs that American women are being destroyed by the sexual revolution and our promiscuous culture...

Obese people face a much higher risk - of up to 80 percent - of dying in a car collision compared with people of normal weight, researchers reported Monday in a specialist journal.

The cause could be that safety in cars is engineered for people of normal weight, not for the obese, they said.

Transport safety scientists Thomas Rice of the University of California at Berkeley and Motao Zhu of the University of West Virginia delved into a US databank on road accidents, the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS).

They dug out data from 1996 to 2008, covering more than 57,000 collisions that involved two cars. This was whittled down to cases in which both parties involved in the collision had been driving vehicles of similar size and types.

Scot Denhalter stands beside the giant 12-foot-wide-by-9-foot-tall boulder that pummeled into his home on Jan. 21 in St. George, UT.
It was a nightmare for a Utah woman who awoke in the middle of the night to the rumble of a boulder that rammed through her bedroom.

The 12-foot-wide-by-9-foot-tall rock pummeled through Wanda Lee Denhalter's bedroom at 3 a.m. Jan. 19, breaking her jaw and sternum.

Her husband, Scot Denhalter, was not home during the incident.

"Just knowing a rock had pinned her in the bedroom frightened me," Denhalter was quoted as saying in The Spectrum. "I feel a bit guilty because I wasn't there. She stumbled around probably in shock. She found her phone and called 911."

Officials put on protective masks before entering a house as they investigate a shooting and fire in Boulder City, Nev., Monday, Jan. 21, 2013.
A Las Vegas police lieutenant and two family members are dead after an apparent double murder, suicide and arson at a home in Boulder City, authorities said Monday.

Clark County Sheriff Douglas Gillespie and other officials didn't immediately identify the police officer, pending positive identification and the release of names by the Clark County coroner.

"There was an incident today involving one of Metro's lieutenants," a somber Gillespie said in a 2 1/2-minute statement to reporters at a hastily called news conference. "Several bodies were discovered."

Greg and Gary Cherry are shown in a boat dangling over a dam at Pepper Branch Park in McMinnville, Tenn., Jan. 20, 2013.
Two Tennessee brothers already have plans to fish again next weekend, despite dangling precariously over a dam for three hours after their boat's motor died Sunday.

Greg and Gary Cherry were fishing for bass and perch on their weekly outing when the motor of their Bass Tracker III conked out at the edge of the Barren Fork River Dam in McMinnville, Tenn.

The current began tugging the boat over the edge when Greg Cherry, 47, shoved the motor down to hold the boat in place and called for his brother to quickly join him in the back of the boat.

"Weight transfer is the best thing in that situation," Greg Cherry told ABCNews.com.

"We locked our arms and I said, 'We're in this together,'" Greg Cherry, 47, said. "I said, 'I love you,' and [Gary] said, 'I love you, too.' And if one of us goes over, we're going over together."

NOPD Chief Ronal Serpas told reporters that one suspect was spotted fleeing the scene in a late model white sedan. Shots were thought to have been fired from the vehicle. Surveillance video was being reviewed by New Orleans police.

Atlanta Falcons fan pistol whips TV after loss to San Francisco

Image
An Atlanta fan was so distraught after the San Francisco's record comeback to defeat the Falcons on Sunday that he pistol whipped his flat screen television.

In an unverified cell phone video that was posted on Sunday, the cameraman announces that the fan "just broke his fucking TV."

At that point, the fan pulls a gun out of his pocket and slams the butt into the already-cracked screen. With each blow, the screen flashes a bright white light. The man then throws the television to the ground and repeatedly stomps it.
