As the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing incident shook the whole world, actor Bradley Cooper took a moment to show up at one of the victims in the hospital. Jeffrey Bauman Jr., the 27-year-old who lost both his legs during the unforgettable attack, got a visit from Cooper as well as New England wide receiver Julian Edelman.
Bauman was at the marathon to support his girlfriend, when, according to his brother, he saw one of the bombers just before the explosion. Unfortunately for him he fell victim to the blast and woke up under so much medication but was able to write some key answers to hunt down the suspects.
Cooper's and Edelman's visit was certainly a welcome surprise for Bauman. But the two celebrities didn’t plan to visit him together because the Cooper just came out of the blue, according to Edelman. The actor happened to be in town shooting American Hustle, that temporarily stopped its production during the manhunt for Tsarnaev.
Harrison Ford dropped by at Jimmy Kimmel’s show to promote his latest film 42, which is about baseball great Jackie Robinson. He faced a number of questions from fans, to whom he said that no Star Wars questions should be asked as he won’t answer them.

Kimmel asked Ford about his thoughts about the upcoming Star Wars film, where he’s rumored to reprise his Han Solo character and obviously, questions from the audience followed. As these questions were answered, Ford got into a heated argument with co-star and old pal Chewbacca.
He then walked out the studio and left everyone by surprise.
Excited for the opening of Man of Steel? Before it hits theaters, here’s the third installment of the film’s trailer.
The footage takes a deeper look at Superman in action. We also get a glimpse of what that “S” trademark on his chest means, which, according to the superhero is not actually a symbol that means ‘hope’ in Krypton, his home planet.
The trailer also features Russell Crowe, playing the role of his biological father and Kevin Costner as his adoptive father. We get to see General Zod (Michael Shannon) as well, so eager to find and take on Superman.

According to the Associated Press, the improvised bombs were made of 6-liter pressure cookers filled with explosives and sharp metal objects such as nails and ball bearings, hidden inside duffel bags that were strategically left on the ground during the event. They detonated within 10 seconds of each other, timed with a kitchen timer. This kind of bomb can easily be set off using electronic devices and gadgets such as cell phones.

Since there are many questions regarding electric cars, in this episode, Pox talks about terms to look for when getting an electric car, its price, how fast it is, how far it can travel, the one they call MPGe (electric equivalent of miles per gallon) and others. It’s 2-3 times more than the gas equivalent.
Pox explains that many have thought electric cars are mainly golf carts and it’s not actually the case especially if it costs a thousand dollars. Electric cars are also useful when you run out of gas.
One of the popular electric cars they mentioned here was the Tesla Roadster, which is around 120,00$ at its modes and the Nissan Leaf which is more affordable, around $30,000.
