  • In Season 2, 'Insecure' is more sure of itself than ever

    If the second season premiere of HBO's "Insecure" proved anything, it's that the show is more secure in what it is. The comedy series starring Issa Rae returned Sunday night, bringing viewers right back into the ever-tilting world of Issa Dee (Rae) and her friends. The sophomore season picked up three months after the events of the finale, when longtime boyfriend Lawrence (Jay Ellis) finally moved out of the apartment they once shared, signaling their breakup wasn't just temporary.

"Your absence leaves a void that can never be filled -- a boisterous, funny, ambitious, creative, kind, generous voice in the room is missing," the note read. Bennington's death came on the heels of the suicide of his good friend, Chris Cornell, two months ago. The Linkin Park singer was found dead on what would have been Cornell's birthday. Linkin Park was to begin a tour this week in Massachusetts, but that was canceled after Bennington's death. "Our love for making and performing music is inextinguishable," the band wrote.

  • Hunt for HIV cure turns to cancer drugs

    The outstanding progress in boosting the immune system to treat cancer may help unlock a cure for HIV, according to scientists meeting in Paris. The body's normal defences struggle to clear the body of HIV and cancer. But the rapidly emerging field of immunotherapy has seen some patients with terminal cancer go into complete remission. The hope is that a similar approach could clear someone of HIV, although some experts have urged caution. HIV treatment requires daily antiretroviral drugs to kill any active virus.
