    Hilary Duff is swiping left and right on popular dating app Tinder, and tonight she’s going on her first date with one of her potential matches.

    Stars! They’re just like us.

    Duff, who is currently divorcing hockey player Mike Comrie, is living in Brooklyn as she films “Younger” for TV Land.

    She admits she finds Tinder to be “wildly addicting” and is currently matched with about nine different guys on the app.

    She tells E! she’s super nervous for her date, but has no idea if the dudes she’s chatting with know she’s a celebrity.

    “I think some people know,” she says. “You only have your first name. Some people don’t know. I think some people act like they don’t know but they do. And a lot of people are like, ‘This is a joke, right?’”

    Single guys, pay attention; this is what she’s looking for. (This applies to most women — cut it out with the shirtless mirror selfies, guys!)

    “I think the first thing is obviously looks, which sounds super vain, but that is what you first go

  • A.M. Best Revises Outlook to Positive for Spartan Insurance Company

    OLDWICK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

    A.M. Best has revised the outlook to positive from stable and affirmed the financial strength rating of B+ (Good) and the issuer credit rating of “bbb-” of Spartan Insurance Company (Spartan) (Pearland, TX).

    The revised outlook reflects the continuation of Spartan’s favorable operating performance, low liabilities and surplus growth while risk-adjusted capitalization remains adequate and supportive of the ratings. This is due primarily to a recent shift in Spartan’s business profile to a direct writer of non-owner private passenger auto liability business, which has resulted in a third consecutive underwriting profit and a below break-even combined ratio through 2014. Subsequently, the company’s five-year combined ratio and pre-tax operating returns compare favorably to the private passenger non-standard automobile composite. In addition, Spartan

  • Aid reaches quake-hit Nepal villagers as death toll passes 5,000

    Hungry and desperate villagers rushed towards relief helicopters in remote areas of Nepal Tuesday, begging to be airlifted to safety, four days after a monster earthquake killed more than 5,000 people.

    "The ground keeps shaking, even this morning it did. Every time it feels like we will be swallowed, that we will die now. I want to get out of here!" said Sita Gurung, 24, whose home had been wrecked.

    As the Himalayan nation's Prime Minister Sushil Koirala said getting help to remote areas was a "major challenge", aid finally began reaching areas that had to fend for themselves since Saturday's 7.8-magnitude quake.

    In a televised address late Tuesday, Koirala declared three days of national mourning for the 5,057 people known to have perished in Nepal alone.

    More than 100 people died in neighbouring countries such as India and China.

    Around 8,000 people had been injured while the United Nations estimated that eight million people had been affected.

    Among the dead were 18 climbers who
