FIST BUMPS-GERMS

NEW YORK (AP) -- Worried about germs? Then, bump rather than shake. Fist bumps spread only one-20th of the amount of bacteria compared to a handshake. Researchers writing in the American Journal of Infection Control report a high-five is about half as germy as a shake. So, President Barack Obama maybe on to something with his preference for a fist bump.

NUDE MODELS-MANHATTAN

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York really was "the naked city" -- at least on Saturday. Artists painted the bodies of 40 nude models, turning an entrance to Central Park into a celebration of the human form. Artist Andy Golub staged what he called the inaugural Bodypainting Day. It only happened after a long legal battle. Golub and a model were arrested in 2011 during a body-painting project in Times Square. The city paid model Zoe West a $15,000 settlement after she sued. Public nudity is legal in the Big Apple when part of a performance.

'SPIDER-MAN' CHARGED

NEW YORK (AP) -- Say it ain't so Spidey! Spider-Man is charged with slugging a police officer in New York's Times Square. In this case, the web-slinger is Junior Bishop. Authorities say he was dressed as Spider-Man and demanded that tourists pay him to pose for pictures. According to officers, Bishop was yelling and cursing, then punched a police officer in the face. He now faces a number of charges, including assault and resisting arrest.

FEMALE OFFICIAL

UNDATED (AP) -- Cat Conti is earning her stripes, as a college football official. She'll be on the field at the Southeast Missouri State-Kansas game on September 6, making her the first woman to work a football game in the Big 12 Conference. But Conti never was interested in sports growing up in Southern California. She wanted to be a Hollywood star. She says she developed a passion for football while in college and became fascinated with the chain crew. Conti went on to be a ninth grade English and drama teacher, while serving as a part-time official. She went all-in on zebra stripes about four years ago. Now, she says she just wants to be treated like one of the guys.
