Shark Attacks New Zealand Man 'Adam Strange'

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- A shark possibly 14 feet long killed a swimmer near a popular New Zealand beach on Wednesday, then disappeared after police attempting to save the man fired gunshots at the enormous predator. Muriwai Beach near Auckland was closed after the fatal attack, one of only about a dozen in New Zealand in the past 180 years."We saw him rolling around, there was blood everywhere on the water," Pio Mose, who was fishing nearby, told local broadcaster 3 News. Mose said he believed at least two other sharks had joined in the frenzy around the body after a few minutes. The shark that attacked the swimmer was a great white, according to Russell Clark, a paramedic from the Westpac Rescue Helicopter service, which responded to the emergency at the beach.The head of the local volunteer lifeguard service was quoted as saying they had confirmed that "one or two" sharks were spotted, but none had been seen since the man's body was removed from the water. Shark attacks are rare in New Zealand, where water sports and beach holidays are a rite of summer. More than 60 shark species are known to swim in the country's waters.Police said in a statement that they shot at the shark before it disappeared. Shark attacks are rare in New Zealand, with only 11 fatal attacks since records began in 1847.

Erin Andrews Rejects Kiss from 50 Cent at Daytona 500

Erin Andrews put the brakes on 50 Cent at the Daytona 500. Andrews, on the scene working for FOX, was searching for Danica Patrick before the Daytona 500 got underway when she encountered 50 Cent. The rapper attempted to plant a kiss on Andrews, but she turned her head a few times to avoid it. 50 Cent wasn’t apologizing afterward. “Hey, I wanted to kiss her, so I did,” he tweeted. (WARNING: NSFW language visible in the screen cap). 50 Cent was at Daytona to watch driver Mark Martin, who’s a huge fan of hip-hop. The artist sat atop Martin's pit stall and watched the 54-year-old driver of the No. 55 car finish third.Not surprisingly, 50 Cent's failed attempt to kiss Andrews caught the attention of many watching the race coverage. For many, the moment evoked memories of Joe Namath's very public and very rejected bid to kiss Suzy Kolber of ESPN in 2003.

Affleck's 'Argo' wins best picture Oscar

LOS ANGELES — Just as Oscar host Seth MacFarlane set his sights on a variety of targets with a mixture of hits and misses, the motion picture academy spread the gold around to a varied slate of films. "Argo" won best picture as expected, along with two other prizes. But "Life of Pi" won the most awards with four, including a surprise win for director Ang Lee. "Les Miserables" also won three Academy Awards, while "Django Unchained" and "Skyfall" each took two.Daniel Day-Lewis joined a select group of recipients with his third Oscar, taking the best-actor trophy for his monumental performance as Abraham Lincoln in the Civil War saga “Lincoln.” “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence triumphed in Hollywood’s big games, winning the best actress as a damaged soul in “Silver Linings Playbook,” while Ang Lee pulled off a huge upset as best director for “Life of Pi.” Anne Hathaway went from propping up leaden sidekick James Franco at the Academy Awards to hefting a golden statue of her own with a supporting-actress Oscar win as a doomed mother-turned-prostitute in the musical “Les Miserables.”I want to thank Canada. I want to thank our friends in Iran, who live under terrible circumstances," said Affleck, a co-producer of the film, speaking at top speed in the very last minutes of the live prime-time Oscar broadcast. "Argo" recounts how a group of US diplomats who took refuge in the Canadian embassy in Tehran during the Iran hostage crisis were spirited out of the Islamic republic as members of a bogus movie crew.

Kidd-Gilchrist Taken To Hospital After Hit To Head

Bobcats rookie F Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was taken off the floor vs. Houston on a stretcher after he suffered a head injury when teammate Jeff Taylor's knee collided with his head. The play occurred in the third quarter on a fast break. Toney Douglas pushed off in mid-air on Kidd-Gilchrist, pushing his head back just as Henderson's knee came in. Taylor swooped in and his right hip connected with the back of Kidd-Gilchrist's head. Kidd-Gilchrist lay motionless for several minutes. The athletic training staffs from both teams came out to check on him, and the entire Charlotte bench eventually surrounded him. Medical personnel fit Kidd-Gilchrist with a neck brace and he left the floor on a stretcher. He was taken to a hospital.
