Rapper Eminem climbed back to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart on Wednesday after ousting last week's chart-topper Lady Gaga. Eminem's "The Marshall Mathers LP 2" reclaimed the top spot on the weekly album chart with sales of 120,000, according to figures from Nielsen SoundScan. The record had debuted at No. 1 following its release on November 5 with sales of 792,000 copies, the second-largest opening week this year behind Justin Timberlake's "The 20/20 Experience," which opened with 968,000 copies in March. Lady Gaga's latest effort "ARTPOP" debuted at No. 1 last week with 258,000 copies, but sales dropped by 82 percent in its second week, as the record fell to No. 8 in the chart with 46,000 units sold.

The end to the eight-year marriage was made final on Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, with both actors agreeing not to pay spousal support.

Merely by moving their tongues left or right across their mouths, essentially using it as a joystick, paralyzed patients have been able to move their motorized wheelchairs, as well as computer cursors. The advance "is more than just a wheelchair control," said Jason Disanto, 39, who has been paralyzed from the neck down since a 2009 diving accident and tested the device. "It's an independence system." The innovation is especially meaningful for the most seriously paralyzed. Tetraplegics cannot use a joystick to operate their wheelchairs, as people with less severe paralysis can, and in many cases cannot even use voice commands: their voices are often so weak that recognition systems work poorly or not at all.
