1 hour ago

In many ways, Mark Bustos is like a lot of New York City hairstylists. He's tattooed and fashionable and works six-day weeks. It's what Mark does on his one day off, though, that sets him apart from the rest of the city's salon workers. Since May 2012, Bustos, 30, has spent his Sundays approaching the homeless and needy in Jamaica, Costa Rica and N.Y.C. with one phrase: "I want to do something nice for you today." That something nice is a haircut, free of charge - a simple gesture that for many of Bustos's "clients" can be their first step towards a major life change. »

1 hour ago

He's got the tux and he's working on the jokes. The only thing not under control is his nerves. Late Night host Seth Meyers chatted with People about his upcoming pressure-packed hosting gig at the Primetime Emmy Awards on Aug. 25. Are you freaking out?I'm a nerve junkie. I keep doing things that are nerve-inducing. When I did the White House Correspondents' Dinner and the ESPYs, it was a little less stressful because I was the entertainer in a room not full of entertainers. With the Emmys, every face you see are people that have entertained you over the years. »

The pair had met as students at the University of Connecticut, where Lanchester was studying abroad. In the year since Blandford's proposal, Lanchester spent thousands of pounds planning the wedding and paying for his plane ticket to England for the ceremony. All the while, Blandford »

His actions inspire other commuters to help out and band together to pull the woman and her 1-year-old granddaughter from the car's wreckage.

Pierce Brosnan Loses to Jimmy Fallon in 'GoldenEye 007' (Video)

6 hours ago

Just because you star in a video game, doesn't mean you'll be any good at it. That's the hard lesson Pierce Brosnan learned during his appearance on The Tonight Show Tuesday - the former Bond, James Bond, was handily defeated by Jimmy Fallon at the classic Nintendo 64 game based on the first film Brosnan appeared in as the iconic British agent. A generation of kids grew up playing "GoldenEye 007" on the N64 platform - it's considered one of the most important titles in the first-person shooter genre and is a spiritual successor to millions-selling games like Microsoft's "Halo" franchise.

In a horrifying act of revenge for U.S. air strikes in northern Iraq, militants with the Islamic State extremist group have beheaded American journalist James Foley - and are threatening to kill another hostage, U.S. officials say. The White House must now weigh the risks of adopting an aggressive policy to destroy the Islamic State against resisting any action that could result in the death of another American. It will also confront the potentially necessary step of pursuing the Islamic State in Syria, where President Barack Obama has resisted launching air strikes or deploying significant American firepower.
