The United Nations said Monday that Hollywood star George Clooney's fiancee Amal Alamuddin is to join fellow human rights experts probing Israel's Gaza offensive. The Lebanese-born British lawyer was one of three top experts appointed to a commission of inquiry by the UN Human Rights Council, which ordered the investigation last month. Alamuddin is no stranger to international investigations and conflicts. She worked with the international tribunal examining the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq Hariri and assisted ex-UN head Kofi Annan in efforts to make peace in Syria. Among her legal clients have been Ukraine's former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko and the controversial founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange.

Another HUUUGE boxing role has opened up for Jamie Foxx as he's just been tapped to sing the national anthem at the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight! Foxx, who's starring as Mike Tyson in an upcoming biopic -- was recently approached about belting out the "Star-Spangled Banner" ... and jumped at the chance!

Maybe this will get Hillary Clinton to come back to Chipotle. Chipotle on Monday moved to eliminate its last remaining genetically altered ingredients, positioning itself as the first national restaurant chain in the U.S. to achieve that milestone. “We are changing the way people think about and eat fast food, and that means cooking with the very best ingredients – ingredients that are free of additives – but still serving food that is affordable, convenient, and most importantly delicious,” Steve Ells, founder and co-CEO of Chipotle, said in a statement.
When Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake stood at a podium Saturday night in the aftermath of violent looting, she was flanked by several men, including Carlos Muhammad, a leader of the local chapter of the Nation of Islam. That in and of itself is not surprising, since Rawlings-Blake thanked the Nation of Islam for helping quash violence that gripped the city Saturday night. Protesters were angry about the death of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old African-American man who suffered a fatal injury while in police custody last week, But while Muhammad stood with Rawlings-Blake as she called for peace in the streets Saturday, it was a more fiery message he cheered on at a speech at Baltimore’s Morgan State University in November. It was there, in the aftermath of a Missouri grand jury’s decision not to indict a white police officer in the shooting death of Michael Brown, that Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan asserted that peace was not an option for blacks in their dealings with law enforcement. “We going to die anyway. Let’s die for something,” Farrakhan told the crowd that day.
The Wall Street Journal took its turn Saturday lashing out at Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker for saying immigration policy should prioritize American workers, in an editorial the big-business-oriented paper since had to correct. The board wrote in an editorial, "Republicans used to understand basic economic principles, but the politics of immigration is turning some of them into economists for the AFL-CIO." Walker made a splash last week when he said in an interview with Glenn Beck that the needs of American workers should be at the forefront of immigration policy, and referred explicitly to Republican Senator and immigration hawk Jeff Sessions. TheWSJ board wrote that Sessions advising Walker on immigration is bad because Sessions is spreading the idea that foreign workers are taking jobs from Americans with science, technology, engineering and math degrees.
