    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.

    14 more Nigeria schoolgirls escape Islamists

    Maiduguri (Nigeria) (AFP) - Another 14 Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram Islamists in the northeast have escaped, leaving 85 missing on Saturday after an attack that has sparked global outrage, an official said. The unprecedented mass abduction of 129 teenage girls from the Chibok area of Borno state has been described as among the most shocking ever by Boko Haram, an extremist group blamed for killing thousands since 2009. “I am glad to say that 14 more students have escaped from their abductors,” Borno’s education commissioner Inua Kubo told journalists. They have since been sent to their family villages, while the three others had returned to their school in Chibok and were being cared for there, he said.

  • Social Security to resume benefits statement mailings

    By Mark Miller CHICAGO (Reuters) - Paper Social Security benefits statements, which used to be mailed out every year and then fell victim to budget cuts, are going to make a partial comeback. Starting this September, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will resume mailings at five-year intervals to workers who have not signed up to view their statements online, an agency spokesman told Reuters. The statements will be sent to workers at ages 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55 and 60, he said, adding the agency would continue to promote use of the online statements. The SSA stopped mailing most paper statements in 2011 in response to budget pressures, and saved the SSA $70 million annually - about 50 cents per mailed statement.
