Checkout Jennifer Lawrence's New Super Hot Bodyguard (Photos)

Jennifer Lawrence has a hot new bodyguard, The Beautiful Oscar winning actress, 24, was photographed on the streets of Manhattan's Tribeca neighborhood with an incredibly cute accessory in tow: a dashingly handsome man trailing her from behind.

A source tells that the good-looking guy is her new bodyguard Greg Lenz. "Jennifer likes the hot ones!" one insider stressed, adding that the actress was downtown to go apartment shopping.

For the occasion, Lawrence was dressed in a pair of faded denim shorts, loose gray top, and heels. She accessorized her chic city outfit with a printed bucket bag and panama hat, leaving her blonde tresses down in loose waves.

Lenz, however, stole the show with a puppy in tow. Lawrence's security detail, dressed in navy slacks and a crisp blue button-down, was snapped adorably holding the actress' little dog up against his chest. With his tall, dark, and handsome features, it's no wonder why Lawrence chose Lenz to protect her.

Angry Women Troll Nobel Prize-Winning Scientist, Tim Hunt For Making Sexist Comments (Photos)

Nobel Prize-winning biochemist Tim Hunt, who suggested that scientists should have gender-segregated labs to stop men falling in love with "girls," has stepped down from his position at the University College London (UCL). The 72-year-old professor came under fire this week after making sexist comments at the World Conference of Science. He said to Journalists in South Korea on Tuesday.
"Let me tell you about my trouble with girls," 
"Three things happen when they are in the lab: you fall in love with them, they fall in love with you, and when you criticize them, they cry."

Hunt apologized for the remarks on BBC Radio 4's Today program yesterday, but added that he was "just trying to be honest" and "did mean the part about having trouble with girls." He said: "It is true … I have fallen in love with people in the lab and people in the lab have fallen in love with me and it’s very disruptive to the science because it’s terribly important that in a lab people are on a level playing field."

On Twitter, the reaction has been more strident and often more creative, with scientists using the hashtag #distractinglysexy to mock Hunt's remarks:

In Pregnancy, Should You Eat More or Less. New Findings Will Shock You

Pregnant women and those trying to conceive a baby may be scared about what happens to the baby if a pregnant mother does not eat properly. While the question is a very common one, the answer to this question is complicated. Every woman is different and every baby is different. Proper nutrition before, during, and after pregnancy is crucial to the health of both mother and baby

Dieting and exercising is far healthier than ‘eating for two’ during pregnancy, doctors have warned.

Evidence from 11,444 women suggests that systematically trying to reduce weight gain can have a positive impact on the health of a mother and her baby.

Locals Panic as Ferocious Lion Escapes From South African Zoo

Officials said the a three-year old lion was believed to have escaped on June 5 through a hole under the perimeter fence at the Karoo National Park.

They said the lion was discovered missing after farmers reported tracks on their private property.

“We are still searching for it, but with a master tracker on board since yesterday we believe we are getting closer,” said Karoo Park spokeswoman, Fayroush Ludick.

Ludick said when the lion is found would likely be shot with a tranquilliser dart and returned to the wildlife park it escaped from.

Rangers earlier failed to lure the animal with an antelope carcass.

Situated about halfway between Cape Town and Johannesburg, the Karoo National Park is a hilly region of grassy scrub land and winding river valleys, making tracking challenging.

Two weeks ago, an American tourist was mauled to death when a lioness attacked her through the open window of a car while she was driving in the Kruger National Park, South Africa’s biggest safari park.
