The new $100 bill goes into circulation today, and the federal government released a detailed description so that people won't think the bill is counterfeit.
Congrats to actress SCARLETT JOHANSSON, who's made the record books by being named Esquire's "Sexiest Woman Alive" for the second time.

Congrats to EMINEM's daughter, HAILIE, who was crowned homecoming queen of Chippewa Valley HS on Friday during a football game in Clinton Township, MI.
Hailie --now 17-- was described by those who know her as a "smart, athletic and caring young woman."
Her dad, MARSHALL MATHERS, who's now 40, watched from a classroom at the school so as not to take the attention away from his daughter. "He wanted Hailie to have her own moment," one parent told the Macomb Daily.
Simplicity Pattern #1517 may be labeled "Misses' Edwardian Style Dresses" but we all know they are Downton Abbey Seasons 1 and 2 costumes you can now make at home! No matter what the copy on the envelope says:
"Perfect for that early 20th Century feel. Look like a true aristocratic lady with embroidered and lace overlays."
But wait --there's more: "Corset pattern included." At a fabric/sewing store near you for the suggested retail price of $18.95, just in time to stitch one up for Halloween. (Kaye)
Cops in American Fork, Utah, won't go easy on you just because you're a girl. Apparently, being a little kid won't help either.
Cops ticketed a little girl's pink Barbie Jeep after they spotted it blocking a driveway. Two sisters --seven and nine years old-- reportedly left the toy in the street after playing with it. When the girls went outside the next day, there was an "abandoned vehicle" sticker on it. The sisters say they've learned their lesson and will keep the toy in the garage from now on. (Still)
