2 Veeps Take Over the White House Correspondents' Dinner

Forget being president. The White House Correspondents' Dinner was taken over by not one but two vice presidents - although one was fictional.

In a video Vice President Joe Biden took out Selina Meyer, played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, for a night on the town. As Selina Meyer, the title character from the HBO show "Veep," Louis-Dreyfus got to run around D.C. as if she owned the place, bumping into Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner along the way.

The two veeps end up breaking into the West Wing, getting caught by Michelle Obama eating ice cream and finishing the night by getting matching tattoos that read "45" - as in the number for the next president.

All in all, it’s not a bad way to spend time as the vice president.

After disgraced Donald Sterling was banned for life from attending NBA games and calls for him to sell the L.A. Clippers intensified, boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. announced this week his intentions to make a bid for the team that hasn’t been put up for sale yet.

Mayweather, the world’s highest paid athlete and a regular face at Clippers and Lakers’ games, told reporters at the MGM Grand Tuesday that he had spoken with his adviser, Al Haymon, about teaming up with others to buy the Clippers, ESPN reported.

He is not the only athlete with his eyes set on a piece of the prize, with retired boxer Oscar De La Hoya also interested in part ownership of the Clippers, while others in the film, music and tech industries have also been named potential purchasers.

Under a draft bill in Spain that has been approved by parliament, children may soon be required to participate in all areas of family life and perform their household chores by law, according to the BBC.

The rules fall under a section called "the rights and duties of children," and would involve "co-responsibility in caring for the home and performing household tasks regardless of age and gender", local media reported.

The penalties for kids who deny their duties have yet to be outlined.

Montana Supreme Court justices Wednesday overturned a one-month sentence given to a former high school teacher convicted of raping a 14-year-old student.

The court ordered that Stacey Dean Rambold, who was 47 at the time of the rape, be re-sentenced by a new judge. He will receive a minimum of two years under state sentencing laws, the AP reported.

Rambold was a business teacher at Billings Senior High School in 2007 when he raped one of his students who later killed herself in 2010. His attorney, Jay Lansing, was not immediately available for comment.
