Brazilian model Gisele Bündchen has been chosen to present the trophy to the winner of the World Cup. The honor is usually given to the president of the host country, however Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff is so unpopular that they decided to ask the supermodel and wife of American football star Tom Brady instead. The president has taken a lot of heat from Brazilians for spending $11 billion on the World Cup when so much of the country is mired in poverty. (Boston.com)

 

 

  

  

DR. OZ: Grilled on Capitol Hill

Dr. Oz probably wasn't expecting the barrage he faced on Capitol Hill this morning (Tuesday). America's favorite TV doctor was asked to testify in front of a Senate panel investigating deceptive claims made for various health products on the market. But the hearing, chaired by Democrat Claire McCaskill of Missouri, quickly turned confrontational when Oz's own claims came up. McCaskill quizzed the doc about why he pushes "miracle" weight-loss products on his show, most notably green-coffee extract. He acknowledged the need for scientific backing and insisted he's toned down the language he uses. But he defended his approach, saying, "My job is to be a cheerleader for the audience when they don't think they have hope." The Senate's Commerce Committee is investigating five products whose makers have used Dr. Oz's quotes in sales pitches. (TheHill.com)
