Kate Upton prom, Every hot and young girl has dreams about getting asked out to prom in a romantic yet clever way, right? Does that include Kate Upton? The blonde bombshell got her very own tailor-made prom invitation, courtesy of high school senior Jake Davidson. The Los Angeles teen uploaded a video requesting that Kate join him for his school's big dance on May 23 and he has some pretty compelling arguments. "I'm Jewish, 5'9" on a really good day and I can't dance at all," Davidson says while shaving. "You're Christian, 5'10" and that 'Cat Daddy' video should've won an Oscar for Best Short Film. You could say this is destiny." We're not saying that 99.9 percent of teenage boys wouldn't also love to take Ms. Upton to prom, but Davidson's attempt to jokingly woo the model is particularly endearing. While doing push-ups, he lists their many common interests, like food and Sports Illustrated (she poses in

Citigroup to pay $730M

Citigroup to pay $730M, Citigroup now agreed to pay all $730 million to settle a class-action lawsuit that claimed investors were misled by the bank's disclosures when they purchased its debt and preferred stock. The purchases were made from May 11, 2006 through Nov. 28, 2008. Citigroup denied the allegations and said in a statement late Monday that it agreed to the settlement so it could avoid further expenses and uncertainties that come along with drawn out litigation. "This settlement is another significant step toward resolving our exposure to claims arising from the financial crisis, and we look forward to putting this matter behind us," the company said. Citigroup said the proposed $730 million payment will be made from existing litigation reserves. The settlement will be reviewed by Judge Sidney Stein in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, where the lawsuit is pending.

Citigroup to pay $730M, US banking giant Citigroup will pay $730m to settle a class-action suit by bondholders related to the 2008 financial crisis. The settlement is the latest step by Citi to put the ill-effects of the financial crisis behind it Photo: Getty Images The suit alleged Citigroup misled buyers of its bonds over its exposure to subprime mortgages and other high-risk securities ahead of and during the crisis, from May 2006 to November 2008. The settlement is the latest step by Citi to put the ill-effects of the financial crisis behind it. Citi was harmed more by the crisis compared with some peers, such as JP Morgan. The plaintiffs had argued that Citigroup misrepresented its exposure to mortgage-related assets, according to Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossman, the plaintiffs attorneys. Citi also understated the loss reserves for its mortgage loans and "falsely stated" that assets held off its balance sheet were of high value, Bernstein Litow

Sinkhole swallows pond, Stuns whole nation

Sinkhole swallows pond, The sinkhole has swallowed a pond on Sunday stunning a local homeowner in Newcastle, Ca. Mark Korb has reported that he woke up on Sunday morning and noticed that the man-made pond in his garden had completely drained away. Korb has said, "This looks like the moon," according to NBC News. A massive sinkhole reportedly caused the water to drain. Korb has also described that a few years ago he manually drained the pond, and that it took him a full seven days to complete the draining. However, the sinkhole managed to drain the entire pond just overnight. "I would guess probably four to five hours for this whole area to drain," Korb said. The report comes just weeks after another sinkhole appeared in Tampa, Florida, just a few miles from yet another sinkhole that devoured a man as he laid in his bed at home. The second Florida sinkhole is not thought to pose an immediate danger to anyone, authorities reassured at the time. Hillsb

Pentagon bans 60mm mortar round after Marine deaths

A mortar shell explosion killed seven Marines and injured seven more during mountain warfare training in Nevada's high desert, prompting the Pentagon to immediately halt the use of the weapons until an investigation can determine their safety, officials said Tuesday. The explosion occurred Monday night at the Hawthorne Army Depot, a sprawling facility used by troops heading overseas, during an exercise involving the 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force from Camp Lejeune, N.C. Several Marines from the unit were injured in the blast, authorities said. The Marines were practicing firing mortars, reports CBS affiliate KTVN-TV in Reno, when one of the rounds exploded while still inside the tube. Brig. Gen. Jim Lukeman said investigators were trying to determine the cause of the malfunction. The Pentagon expanded a temporary ban to prohibit the military from firing any 60 mm mortar rounds until the results of the investigation. The Marine Corps said Tuesday a "blanket suspension" of

Sinkhole swallows pond

Sinkhole swallows pond, There was something missing when Mark Korb went outside Sunday morning. Most notably, the giant pond that had once been in his yard, which was now a gaping crater in the ground. The Newcastle, Calif., man says the manmade pond on his property fell into a sinkhole that sucked it up in a matter of hours. The speed at which the underground cavity devoured the pond was staggering. Korb noted, by contrast, for instance, that when he drained the pond years ago with a pump the process took seven days. A geology professor from nearby Sierra College attributed the sinkhole to old mining activity or a preexisting fracture rather than groundwater dissolving material.

Sinkhole swallows pond, When Mark Korb woke up Sunday morning, he noticed the man-made pond on his property didn't look the way it did when he went to bed.

The project took him seven days to complete. The sinkhole emptied the pond much faster: "I would guess probably four to five hours for this whole area to drain," Korb said.

Newborn twin deaths

Newborn twin deaths, The magistrate has found 26-year-old Tennessee woman guilty of murder on Tuesday in the 2011 smothering deaths of newborn twins found in her laundry basket. The jury of seven men and five women convicted Lindsey Lowe, of suburban Nashville, of felony murder, premeditated murder and aggravated child abuse. She was immediately sentenced to life in prison by the judge. Lowe, who was often emotional at trial, didn't break down as the sentence was pronounced. She was dry-eyed when she turned to sobbing family members and friends in the courtroom before being taken into custody. The defendant, who toted a Bible throughout much of the seven-day trial, told them softly, "I'm OK. I love you all. He's with me," as she pointed toward the sky. At trial, jurors saw a video of Lowe telling police she had given birth alone on Sept. 12, 2011, in the bathroom of her parents' home on a quiet cul-de-sac in an upper-middle-class neighborhood. The bodies were

Newborn twin deaths, Mother on Trial

Newborn twin deaths, The police officer had choked up and another officer fought back tears Tuesday as they testified about finding two dead babies in a laundry basket at the home of a young Tennessee woman charged with murder. Officer Jeremy Fentress took the stand and described entering the bedroom of defendant Lindsey Lowe and pulling back a bloody towel. He stopped speaking for a few seconds, then told the court: "After I pulled the bloody towel back, I saw a deceased infant." Fentress said he touched the baby with two fingers and found the infant was cold and not breathing. The newborn was the first of two found Sept. 14, 2011, in a two-story home of an upper-middle-class neighborhood in Hendersonville, about 20 miles northeast of Nashville. The second was found by Sgt. James Garrett, who described getting ready to lay the first baby down on a bed "softly and gently" before he discovered the umbilical cord, still attached to something deeper in the baske

Nude beach shut down

Nude beach shut down, Wisconsin authorities on Tuesday announced they will shut down one of nation’s most popular nude beaches on weekdays after struggling for years to curtail sex and drugs on the sandbar and surrounding woods. Nudists from around the country have been traveling to the public beach on the Wisconsin River near Mazomanie, about 25 miles northwest of Madison, for decades as word spread that prosecutors in ultra-liberal Dane County wouldn’t go after anyone for showing skin. But visitors haven’t stopped at just stripping down. They’ve been slipping off into the woods for trysts and drugs. Authorities say that’s crossing the line, but they haven’t been able to stop the shenanigans. Their frustration reached a tipping point Tuesday, when the state Department of Natural Resources announced it will close the beach, the islands immediately off it and the surrounding woods to the public on weekdays, when wardens say troublemakers tend to operate unseen. The closures begin immed

Nude beach shut down, says Wisconsin officials

Nude beach shut down, Wisconsin officials say they will close down a well-known nude beach on weekdays to reduce problems with outdoor sex and drug use.

Warden Nate Kroeplin says that's when most of the illegal activity takes place. The beach will remain open on weekends from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.

And on the very same day, the Olympic skier chanced a face-to-face meeting with the champion golfer's ex-wife Elin Nordegren at the former couple's daughter Samantha's junior baseball game.

Dr. Oz sued, By a New Jersey man claims an insomnia cure promoted on "The Dr. Oz Show" left third-degree burns on his feet. Dr. Oz in this file photo Frank Dietl, of Southampton, N.J., filed a lawsuit in Manhattan state Supreme Court. The Daily News says Dietl was confined to his bed for weeks after using the so-called "knap-sack heated rice footsie." It was promoted on April 17, 2012. Oz recommended filling a pair of socks with uncooked rice and warming them up in a microwave oven and putting them on. The popular cardiothoracic surgeon said leaving them on for 20 minutes would promote better sleep. He warned not to get the socks too hot. "The Dr. Oz Show" said it couldn't comment until it could review the lawsuit.

They want to get as many eggs as they can because usually you produce them but they’re not good. They have to be perfect, perfect, perfect ones.” Vergara’s fiancé Nick Loeb “is 37, younger than me, never had kids,” the Modern Family star notes of her decision to start the process.
