Paul Walker anonymously purchased an engagement ring for a soldier's fiancée.
A worker at a jewelry store in Santa Barbara, California says the soldier who had just completed his first tour of duty in Iraq came into the store with his fiancée to buy a ring prior to heading overseas again.
She saw a ring she really liked but he told her he couldn't afford it.
The "Fast & Furious" actor was in the store at the time and overheard the conversation.
Walker bought the $10,000 ring and told the workers he wanted to remain anonymous.
When the couple asked who bought the ring for them, the workers honored his wish: They wouldn't tell.
President Obama spoke about the gap between the wealthy and the poor in America, making a highly personal case for raising the minimum wage and strengthening the social safety net in our country.
Obama declared it the “defining challenge of our time” to make sure the economy works for rich and poor alike, adding, “I take this personally. I’m only here because this country educated my grandfather on the GI bill.”
The LA Times reports that Obama spelled out his economic priorities and outlined his approach as he enters negotiations with congressional Republicans over budget and fiscal matters. He also said that slashing government programs doesn’t attack the most serious problems facing the nation’s middle class.
Obama also made clear that he will push publicly for an increase to the minimum wage, even though critics doubt that the bill will pass.

As a South African rescue diver probed the wreckage of an overturned tugboat in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Nigeria this summer, it was assumed that he would just be recovering the bodies of those who died.
However, as he was swimming through the murky water of the capsized boat, a hand suddenly reached toward him.
It was the ship’s cook, Harrison Okene, who had somehow survived for about 60 hours, wearing nothing but underwear in the freezing cold water, breathing from a small air pocket and taking sips of Coca-Cola.

Palmdale was ordered to hold a new election for City Council members next year after a Superior Court judge concluded there was discrimination against black and Latino voters in November citywide races.
The judge explained, “The current members of the Palmdale City Council were elected through an unlawful election."
The same judge ruled in July that Palmdale’s elections are illegal because they are held “at large” and thus violate California’s Voting Rights Act. However, Palmdale officials insisted on going through with the scheduled November elections anyway.
