'Shore' star OK for pretrial intervention
TOMS RIVER, N.J. -- ''Jersey Shore'' cast member Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has been admitted into a pretrial intervention program that will allow him to avoid a criminal record for an assault that was shown on the first season of the MTV reality series.
The 25-year-old New York City resident appeared Monday in New Jersey Superior Court in Toms River.
Judge Stephanie Wauters told Ortiz-Magro that he'd be in the program for 18 months and asked if he'd be willing to do community service during that time. The Asbury Park Press reports that he said he would, though the judge did not specify what or how much.
Ortiz-Magro was charged after a September 2009 fight outside a Seaside Heights nightclub.
Ex-Fox host Glenn Beck moving to Texas
NEW YORK -- Former Fox News Channel personality Glenn Beck is bound for Texas.
Beck said Monday that he is relocating his family to Dallas, where his media company is building a new television and radio studio.
Beck is starting a new online network, GBTV, on which he will beam a two-hour program each evening starting in late summer. He's continuing his syndicated radio show.
The president of Beck's company, Mercury Radio Arts, says the move doesn't mean the company will be abandoning its studio and offices in New York.
Museum says it will show a lost Leonardo work
NEW YORK -- An oil painting recently authenticated as the work of Leonardo da Vinci will be on display at the National Gallery in the fall as part of a larger exhibition on the Renaissance artist, the London museum said Monday.
''Salvator Mundi,'' which dates to around 1500, depicts a half-length figure of Christ with one hand raised in blessing and the other holding an orb.
The National Gallery said in a statement Monday that the work was shown to its director, curator and other art scholars after undergoing conservation that was completed in 2010.
