An Academy Award winner has hooked up with a super hero franchise. Jamie Foxx, Oscar winner for his portrayal of Ray Charles in "Ray" , has signed on to play the villain Electro in the forthcoming Spiderman 2.
The third explosion reported in Boston this afternoon, at the JFK Library, appears to have been caused by a fire. Authorities now do not believe it is related to the two bombings earliet this afternoon at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
Two explosions went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon this afternoon. According to CNN, at least two people are dead and 28 were injured. And Boston's WCVB cites witnesses who say several victims lost limbs.
Roughly half of the runners had finished the race, which has been stopped. Boston authorities have shut down some mass transit -- specifically the "Green Line" of the T (subway) near the event -- as well as bridges over the Charles River. New York and Washington, DC authorities are also taking measures to protect landmarks and other high-profile locations.
Joey McEntyre of New Kids on the Block was running in the race and had just finished at the time of the explosions. He tweeted, "There was an explosion by the finish line about five minutes after I finished. I'm OK but I'm sure there are many hurt."

I actually like golf, I just don't get to play much anymore. And I do get my interest revved up this time of the year because The Masters golf tournament kicks off in Augusta, Georgia, today – with Tiger Woods teeing off in the morning.

Pinterest is a hugely successful content-sharing social network. Unfortunately for guys, it’s dominated by women, who end up sharing pictures of clothing, fingernail art, and fruit kabobs.
A new website called Manteresting is looking to give guys a place where they can share their favorite stuff by “nailing” pictures to “workbenches.” The stuff being shared leans toward muscle cars, tools, and bacon pancakes.
It’s a Pinterest for dudes. (BusinessWeek)
While shopping sprees are often stereotyped with women, more men have been dropping big bucks on stuff they don’t need in recent years – and even developing addictions. According to Terrence Shulman, founder of a spending addiction rehab center, there are about 30 million Americans with a compulsive shopping problem – and a full half of them are men.
Shulman explains that shopping addictions don’t always mean massive spending. Instead, it’s about not having the control to say no and stop spending – whether it’s a toy boat or yacht.
Men tend to overspend on vacations, new homes, and cars.
And, many have prior addictions to alcohol or drugs – and just shift their compulsions into spending because it is viewed as a less serious problem to those around them. (FoxBusiness.com)
Life is hard. For example, finding and keeping a job is a challenge. Dealing with relationships can make you crazy. And then, adding to our frustration is the stuff that should be easy for us to do – but just isn’t.

The show is set for August 1st at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pennsylvania. The bill also includes The Band Perry and Cassadee Pope. Tickets go on sale Friday.
The Flatts' Gary LeVox says, “We had a blast performing with Journey! Our respect for them as musicians deepened through the television shows we did together, [and] that talk soon led to wanting to do more. We are very excited about this concert.” Journey's Neal Schon adds, “Our most recent performances with Rascal Flatts were awesome. They’re great guys and great musicians, and we’re looking forward to this show.”
