Experts Offer Advice After Recent Drownings Off Long Island

LONG ISLAND (CBSNewYork) — Experts are offering life-saving advice after strong rip currents are blamed for two drownings off Long Island over the weekend.

As WCBS 880’s Mike Xirinachs reported, Long Beach lifeguard supervisor John Skudin’s advice can’t help the two Brooklyn men who drowned off Long Island’s south shore.

“Don’t go in the water without a lifeguard.”

It was advice the two victims failed to heed — but swimmer Hannah Landry is listening.

“Yeah it’s really good to scream for help,” Landry said.

Landry admits she has screamed for help before and won’t hesitate to scream again. But as lifeguard emphasize, “we can’t help if we are not there.”

“If you take that chance, remember you are taking a chance with your own life.”

Celebrity Seeds: Ice-T And CoCo Reveal The Sex And Name Of Their Lil Swirly Baby On The Way! [Video]

Ice T And Coco Planning To Name Their Daughter Chanel

It’s A Girl! Ice-T and his curvaceous wife Coco have announced the sex of their baby.

Via People.com reports:

The couple shared the exciting news about their first child together on the premiere episode of their new daytime talk show, Ice and Coco, which was taped July 24 and aired Monday.

“I’m 21 weeks. I’m over five months,” Austin, 36, said on the episode, revealing that she’s due in December.

The pair have chosen a name for their bundle of joy: “Already got a name,” Ice-T, 57, shared. “The girl’s name is Chanel.”

The baby will be Ice-T’s third child – he’s already dad to Tracy and Letesha, his two adult children from previous relationships.

Austin told PEOPLE that she couldn’t contain her emotions after first learning she was expecting.

“I took the test and when I found out, I ran downstairs. He was on the computer and I was bawling, screaming. He thought someone died,” she told PEOPLE. “He was just as surprised as me.”

Austin initially was told that her pregnancy could be high-risk due to high blood pressure, but the news caused her to change her approach to health. She said her body is now in a “healthy zone.”

“You never think it could really happen to you — that you can actually make a human being — and when you do, you’re like, ‘Wow!’ ” Austin explains. “Your body takes over and does it itself. You’re not putting the hands and feet together – your body’s cooking it and it’s amazing. It’s a miracle how life can happen.”

The mom-to-be’s pregnancy cravings so far have included a variety of fruit, including honeydew, blueberries and pineapple.

Despite the healthy diet, Austin has allowed herself one indulgence: soda.

“I’m not really a soda girl but I’m craving bubbles,” she said.

Congrats to the happy couple on their show and the baby on the way!

Sony’s Xperia C5 Ultra is the Holy Grail of Selfie Smartphones

While for the most part you can expect the same styling and specs from Sony’s latest Xperia models, there have been some vast improvements made to the camera of the mid-range smartphones. Placing a firm emphasis on photography, the C5 Ultra model houses a twin 13-megapixel front and rear camera, with enhanced front-facing flash and 22cm wide-angle lens, making it the holy grail of selfie devices.

Ronda Rousey Reportedly to Star in Autobiographical Movie

On the heels of a 34-second triumph at UFC 190, Ronda Rousey‘s real-life conquests are once again generating headlines. Now, the background story of Rousey’s journey to greatness will reportedly make its way to the silver screen, with her in the starring role.

Justin Kroll of Variety reports Monday that Paramount Pictures has the rights to Rousey’s autobiography My Fight/Your Fight. Paramount has tasked screenwriter Mark Bomback with penning the film adaptation.

Bomback will also be an executive producer, while Rousey and Mary Parent will produce.

“It’s a real honor to be a part of bringing Ronda’s incredible story to the big screen,” said Parent, whose filmography includes the recent Godzilla reboot and Darren Aronofsky’s ambitious Noah.

Rousey is certainly carving out a unique celebrity. Her latest UFC win over Bethe Correia pushed her MMA record to 12-0, as she’s emerged as the unquestioned dominant force in women’s combat sports.

In addition to being a force in the Octagon, Rousey is no stranger to film, having appeared in action films such as Furious 7, Expendables 3 and recently in Entourage as herself.

Those former two films gave Rousey supporting parts in established franchises, mostly due to her skills as a fighter. The Entourage role had a huge following from television, and although it did show her in action, it expanded her horizons as an actor with more comedic and dramatic moments.

It will be fascinating to see Rousey relive her past with a serious, authentic tone.

Bomback will be embarking on a departure from massive-budget, prominent pre-existing properties, as seen in his most recent work on Total Recall, The WolverineThe Divergent Series: Insurgent and the Planet of the Apes franchise.

Gizmotron 2.0 brings a bow to your axe

The Gizmotron 2.0 for electric guitar has six keys, while the bass version has five

Some time around 1973, Kevin Godley and Lol Creme, then members of British pop/rock group 10cc, invented a device for guitar and bass that brought a bowing sound to selected strings when a key or keys were pressed. The Gizmotron, or Gizmo for short, was famously used by Jimmy Page on the intro to In the Evening on Led Zeppelin’s In Through the Out Door and went on to make its public debut at NAMM 1979. But it was not a commercial success due to its rather temperamental nature. Now over 40 years later, the Gizmo has been revised and revived, with version 2.0 due for release by the end of 2015.

The Rock’s Reward for Months of Clean Eating

rock eating plan

For those of you who know how hard it can be to maintain a strict, clean diet for the long-haul, you can certainly appreciate the joyous anticipation of a well-deserved cheat meal. As demonstrated in his recent Instagram post, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is no different.

In an effort to get shredded for an upcoming project, ‘The Rock’ maintained a diligent eating plan that left no room for cheating. So, when he finally made it to the finish line, he rewarded himself in true Johnson fashion with a mountain of what looks to be some tasty, gut-busting pastries. “This is goin’ down right now in the Johnson household,” said The Rock. Knowing the appetite of the man, we don’t doubt it for a second.
