Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor has sold her Bell-Air state for $11 million in a deal that allows the actress to remain in the home for three more years.
NBC reports Gabor's home, which was recently featured in the Academy Award winning film "Argo," has been on and off the market for years ranging in price from $12 million to $15 million.
According to real state site Zillow, the property sits at 1001 Bel Air Rd, Los Angeles in Bell Air's "prestigious east gate." The house was built in 1955 and features six bedrooms and five bathrooms.
Besides being the site for "Argo," Gabor's home will appear in the upcoming film "Behind the Candelabra" starring Matt Damon, Rob Lowe and Michael Douglas.
German business-management software maker SAP plans to recruit hundreds of people with autism to work as software testers, programmers, and in data management.
SAP is forming an alliance with Specialisterne, a foundation to promote employment for autistic people in technology industries. A pilot program included six software testers in India, and SAP is now hiring five autistic people in Ireland.
SAP said it will expand the project to the U.S., Canada and Germany this year and that this is the foundation’s first global agreement with a company. By 2020, SAP says 1 percent of its global workforce of 65,000 employees would be people with autism.
"SAP sees a potential competitive advantage to leveraging the unique talents of people with autism, while also helping them to secure meaningful employment," the company said.
The company believes that "innovation comes from the edges," according to SAP executive Luisa Delgado. "Only by employing people who think differently and spark innovation will SAP be prepared to handle the challenges of the 21st Century," she said.
Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder that can impair communication and social interaction and cause repetitive behaviors. Nonetheless, many autistic individuals are highly intelligent with an exceptional attention to detail.
Autism spectrum disorders, including Asperger's syndrome, are believed to affect roughly 1 percent of the global population. Specialisterne, originally founded in Denmark, is owned by the Specialist People Foundation, a non-profit organization that seeks to find employment for autistic individuals.
Through Wayne Miller's lens, the world saw black America with new eyes.
Miller, a photographer who was among the first to see the destruction at Hiroshima and who became known for his images of South Side Chicago life and the African American migration, died at his home Wednesday at the age of 94.
Magnum photos, the collective to which Miller belonged for more than 50 years, announced his death in a statement.
"Though his images speak for themselves, by all accounts, what made Wayne Miller a great photographer was his drive to capture the humanity in all his subjects -- the underlying, indefinable qualities that exist beneath our skin and behind our eyes, uniting us all," the statement said.
Miller studied photography in Los Angeles and, as a lieutenant in the Navy during World War II, he served as a member of Edward Steichen's photo unit.
“We had Navy orders that allowed us to go any place we wanted to go and, when we got done, to go home,” Miller said, describing the experience to the American Society of Media Photographers in 1994. “It was fantastic.”
But it was two grants from the Guggenheim foundation that paved the way for Miller to create his most ambitious and lasting images, taken between 1946 and 1948 on Chicago's predominantly black South Side.
"The Ways of Life of the Northern Negro" was an unflinching and unconventional portrait of a city and population in flux.
These "seminal images of American history, each one freighted with the context of what it was to be black in postwar Chicago" were so unexpected from a white man at the time that when Alex Majoli, current president of Magnum, first met Miller, he was shocked to learn Miller wasn't black.
"I had always imagined the man to be black," Majoli said. "He paved the ground for the rest of us who tried to depict the streets, the real life. He was a pioneer."
After Chicago, Miller worked for LIFE Magazine until 1953, and then helped his former boss Steichen curate the ambitious "Family of Man" project, which pooled images from 273 photographers from around the world into an exhibition for the Museum of Modern Art.
Miller served as president of Magnum from 1962 to 1968, and in 1970, he joined the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, where he served as the director of its environmental center.
He spent the final three decades of his life retired from photography, working to protect California forests.
Miller is survived by his wife, Joan, his four children, nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
Jon Bon Jovi has a reputation for being a nice guy, but he had some harsh words for Justin Bieber in a recent interview with The Evening Standard.
The long-time Bon Jovi frontman said Monday that the 19-year-old pop star was disrespectful to fans when he was two hours late to a concert at London's O2 Arena in March. While Bieber blamed his tardiness on "technical issues," Bon Jovi wasn't buying the excuse.
“Every generation has guys that do that, none of that is new," the 51-year-old rocker said in the interview.
Charles Ramsey, the Cleveland resident who was famously enjoying a Big Mac when he heard the cries of kidnapping victim Amanda Berry earlier this month, has been offered free burgers for life at more than a dozen area restaurants.
According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, AMP 150, Washington Place Bistro and Inn and Market Garden Brewery are just a few of the eateries in northeast Ohio offering Ramsey burgers on the hosue.
"We want to honor our local hero with local food," said Scott Kuhn, who runs several of the participating restaurants.
"He stopped his meal midway through to help those women. We're now making sure he has other opportunities to go out and fully enjoy his burger," Kuhn said.
“I heard screaming, I’m eating my McDonalds, I come outside and I see this girl going nuts trying to get out of the house,” Ramsey told reporters on May 6, the day he and neighbor Angel Cordero helped pry kidnapping victim Berry out of Arial Castro's house.
Michelle Obama may be hankering for a nice, long break from the scandal-ridden White House, according to a Boston Globe report.

Talk about over-share. Jesse James, Sandra Bullock's ex-husband and the motorcycle-riding television personality behind "Monster Garage," chopped off the tip of his pinky finger while working in his Austin, Texas, shop on Tuesday.
After the 44-year-old customizer rushed to the hospital, he shared gruesome photos of his injury on Instagram.
"OOOpps, Bad day at the office," James captioned one bloody image.
"Doesn't look like this little dude's gonna make it, Nice know'n you little buddy," he said in another photo showing the bloodless, severed tip of his finger.
While waiting for his surgery to begin, James called into TMZ to explain the accident.
"I was working in the shop and one of my gloves got caught in the machine ... it took my finger off," James explained.
"My wife and I were on the floor looking for the piece of finger so we could haul a** to the hospital," he added.

An advertising agency based in Fargo, N.D., has sued the creators of a Cartoon Network show for stealing the work they created for the state's transportation department, WDAZ-TV reported Wednesday.
The lawsuit alleges that "Annoying Orange" creators Dane Boedigheimer and Spencer Grove, who are originally from North Dakota, saw the "Talking Orange" commercials that aired in the state from 2005 to 2009.
“They picked up, moved to California and started another version of it,” H2M attorney Jeff Landa said. “That’s essentially what our case is about.”
Boedigheimer said in 2011 that he had never seen the "Talking Orange" advertisements. He started "The Annoying Orange" as a YouTube show in 2009 before it hit the Cartoon Network under the title, "“The High Fructose Adventures of Annoying Orange" in 2012.
Watch videos for both "Talking Orange" and "Annoying Orange" below:
We first learned that Halle Berry was three months pregnant with her second child back in April, and the proud mom has had her growing baby belly on display ever since.
Earlier this month, the "X-Men" star wore a tight white t-shirt to Revlon's Run-Walk for Women in Los Angeles. On Monday, photographers spotted her in a form-fitting gray dress to lunch with her fiance Olivier Martinez in Malibu, Calif.
Berry even donned a sleeveless, little black dress in Sherman Oaks on Tuesday.
"I feel fantastic. This [pregnancy] has been the biggest surprise of my life to tell you the truth," Berry told CNN in April.
"I thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me. So it's been a big surprise and the most wonderful," she said.
Berry's child is due this fall.
