A U.K. man is donating his nights to making sure that those in need don't go hungry.

By day, this 20-year-old man from Birmingham, England, who wishes to remain anonymous, is a bartender. But by night, he dons a Spider-Man suit and takes to the streets to feed homeless people. The "Birmingham Spider-Man," as he is known, says that he hopes his work will show others that everyone deserves a helping hand -- no matter their situation.

"I've learned that everyone is the same, we're all part of the human experience and I ... believe that we need to look at everyone as humans and help each other the same as we would a close friend," he told The Huffington Post in a message.

While the 20-y

Customers in Danville, California, found a way to honor one of their favorite Costco employees.

Arlie Smith has worked at the wholesale warehouse chain for more than two decades, and is much-loved among customers, ABC's local affiliate KGO reported. But last year, the 45-year-old was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer and was told he may have just two years to live, according to KTVU. When news of Smith's diagnosis spread, shoppers decided to plan something special for the beloved employee.

On Tuesday, some Costco customers, or "Arlie's Angels," as they call themselves, showed up at the store and presented the worker with $2,500 for him and his wife to take a four-night getaway to Lag

A British backpacker who wrote a romantic note to locate a handsome stranger after spotting him on a New Zealand beach has finally met her Romeo for the first time. Sarah Milne, from Glasgow, left a handmade poster for the man, who she saw in Picton on Friday and described as 'shirtless, wearing black shorts with stars tattooed on his torso and running with a curly, bouncy and blonde dog'. In her note, entitled 'Is this you?', she invited the mystery stranger to meet her on the same beach on Tuesday. But the message soon became a source of huge online interest with the identity of both the author and its intended target generating unexpected publicity. Then on Tuesday at 2pm, in front of

When you’re living a distracted life, every minute must be accounted for. You feel like you must be checking something off the list, staring at a screen, or rushing off to the next destination. And no matter how many ways you divide your time and attention, no matter how many duties you try and multi-task, there’s never enough time in a day to ever catch up.

That was my life for two frantic years. My thoughts and actions were controlled by electronic notifications, ring tones, and jam-packed agendas. And although every fiber of my inner drill sergeant wanted to be on time to every activity on my overcommitted schedule, I wasn’t.

You see, six years ago I was blessed with a laid-back, ca

SALT LAKE CITY - A man saved the life of a baby girl who had been trapped for 13 to 16 hours after the car her mother was driving flipped into a river.

The man who first saw the car, a fisherman, noticed a car upside-down in the water then phoned the information to police. Rescuers tipped the four-door car onto its side and found the 18-month-old Lily Groesbeck strapped in her car seat, still alive. Lily was taken to a Salt Lake City hospital, where she was in critical but stable condition and improving.

Rescuers also found the body of Lily's mother, 25-year old Lynn Jennifer Groesbeck, in the driver's seat.

Police said the accident appears to have occurred at around 10:30 p.m. loc

My client acquired a large company and I went along for his initial meetings with his new employees.

In the afternoon he planned a company-wide address. That morning we met for several hours with top executives. (Talk about emotions on full display: ego, anxiety, obsequiousness, defensiveness, fear, excitement… when the new sheriff comes to town all the icy-cool corporate masks quickly come off.)

The meeting ended at noon and when we walked out fifteen minutes later he noticed a big buffet set up on the other side of the atrium. There were plenty of people standing around in white coats and black slacks but no one in line or sitting at tables.

“What’s that for?” he asked a person wa

Birmingham , AL - The fight began after an argument on Facebook between four "friends". They took their squabble to a park but that brawl ended with a 14-year-old girl dead.

The group of girls who quarreled on Facebook decided to settle their differences at a Birmingham park, where they planned to videotape their fight and post it on Facebook.

After the fight began, two teen boys pulled out guns and started shooting at the girls. One of those shots killed 14-year-old Kierra'onna Rice and wounded two others.

Birmingham police arrested two suspects, a 17-year-old male and an 19-year-old male, who were identified by witnesses. Police said formal charges are pending.

Washington - The White House published a full-page ad Sunday in The New York Times directed at an ad attacking National Security Adviser Susan Rice.

The ad, claiming "Susan Rice has a blind spot: Genocide," appeared in Saturday's paper promoting a talk by American Rabbi Shmuley Boteach. He claims Rice has sought to silence Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of his address to Congress.

A senior administration official at the White House cited criticism from a number of Jewish advocacy groups in reaction to the ad, saying it has been met with "revulsion."

"This ad is being widely met with the revulsion that it deserves. Frankly, the ad says more about those who supported

Lonard Nimoy, who played Spock on the "Star Trek" television series and in several major motion pictures of the same story, died on today at age 83.

His granddaughter, Dani, confirmed the death on Twitter. She called him "an extraordinary man." Nimoy revealed a year ago that he had been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

As the half-human, half-alien chief science officer for the Starship Enterprise, Spock gave the world the indelible blessing "Live long and prosper" and his familiar split-fingered Vulcan salute. He was second in command to William Shatner's Captain James T. Kirk, his stoicism the perfect counter to Kirk's fiery personality.

As the half-human, hal

San Francisco - A long-shot effort to break California into six separate states got a boost on Monday, when the billionaire venture capitalist behind the proposal said he had gathered enough signatures to place it on the ballot in two years.

Timothy Draper, a founder of a Silicon Valley-based venture capital firm that has invested in Twitter, Skype and Tesla, among other companies, has been agitating for months for a ballot initiative to chop the most populous U.S. state into smaller entities.

"It??s important because it will help us create a more responsive, more innovative and more local government, and that ultimately will end up being better for all of Californians," said Roger Sal
