NEW YORK On the field, the four-legged fur balls of the Hallmark Channel's Kitten Bowl III were all business.

The word joins Oxford Dictionaries' 'vape,' a darling of the e-cigarette movement, and 'exposure,' declared the year's winner at during a time of tragedy and fear due to Ebola.

NEW YORK Kale has crept out of salads and juicers into beauty products from niche and mainstream sellers.

The leafy superfood that many love and others love to hate can now be had in face masks, skin-brightening serums, creams and nail polish, pushed along by the march to healthier living and the frenzy to fend off aging.
