As her mom explains it, little Maggie is a big fan of superheroes, as well as, “Doctor Who, Minecraft, dragons, skeletons and zombies … but also likes Frozen, princesses, kittens etc.” That’s why the 7-year-old shopper got annoyed while visiting the retail chain Tesco, and saw an in-store ad for a Spider-Man toy with the slogan “Fun gifts for boys.” After taking this image, showing just how unimpressed she was with their campaign, the store apologized and said that the sign will be taken down in all of their stores.

At this point, it’s not clear who will replace Hagel in the position ... Discuss

Apple has announced a new campaign in partnership with RED to raise money for the Global Fund in an effort to provide drugs and treatment to AIDS victims.
