    Kim Novak hits back at post-Oscar 'bullies'

    Veteran actress Kim Novak has lashed out at the "bullies" who mocked and criticized her appearance at the Academy Awards last month. The 81-year-old, star of Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 masterpiece "Vertigo," said she was too humiliated to leave her house after the wave of ridicule and jokes made about her slow speech and rigid appearance while presenting an award alongside young actor Matthew McConaughey. "However, I will no longer hold myself back from speaking out against bullies. Addressing what she called "the elephant in the room," she added in the posting: "Years ago, I walked away from Hollywood partially because I didn’t stand up to the bullies.

    TOTALLY WORTH IT: High school senior suspended for asking Miss America to prom

    If Miss America visits your high school, and if it’s springtime, and if you don’t have a date to the senior prom, you’ve got to ask her to go with you. Such was the case for Patrick Farves, a senior at Central York High School, when the reigning Miss America, Nina Davuluri, came to the York, Pa. school on Thursday to give a speech about diversity and the value of science, engineering and math. During the question-and-answer period that followed Davuluri’s speech, Farves asked Miss America to prom. Farves, 18, got the brilliant idea to ask Miss America to the prom a few days before the assembly.

  • Deadly gun attack in eastern Ukraine shakes fragile Geneva accord

    By Aleksandar Vasovic SLAVIANSK, Ukraine (Reuters) - At least three people were killed in a gunfight in the early hours of Sunday near a Ukrainian city controlled by pro-Russian separatists, shaking an already fragile international accord that was designed to avert a wider conflict. The incident triggered a war of words between Moscow and Ukraine's western-backed government with each questioning the other's compliance with the agreement, brokered last week in Geneva, to end a crisis that has made Russia's ties with the West more fraught than at any time since the Cold War. The separatists said armed men from Ukraine's Right Sector nationalist group had attacked them. Failure of the Geneva agreement could bring more bloodshed in eastern Ukraine, but may also prompt the United States to impose tougher sanctions on the Kremlin - with far-reaching consequences for many economies and importers of Russian energy.
