'13 Reasons Why' cast pick fave Selena Gomez songs
(12 Apr 2017) '13 REASONS WHY' CAST PICK FAVE SELENA GOMEZ SONGS Multi-talented singer and actress Selena Gomez went behind the camera as executive producer of the new Netflix show "13 Reasons Why." At the series' recent Los Angeles premiere, the cast weighed in on their favorite songs from their chart-topping boss. It was an easy choice for "13 Reasons" star Dylan Minnette. "Do I have a favorite song? Oh, oh, oh, 'Me and the Rhythm' is hands down the best Selena song. So good," he said. Actor Devin Druid said the song Gomez recorded for the show's soundtrack was his fave. "My favorite Selena song? Oh, well the acoustic version of 'Kill Em With Kindness' just came out on the '13 Reasons Why' soundtrack. So good! It's so good! I'm kind of in love with 'Perfect.' It's one of my favorites, that song," he said. Justin Prentice admitted that there was one song in particular that stuck in his head through his entire audition process. "'I Love You Like a Love Song Baby' - that's my go-to. It's really funny because through the entire audition process, I don't know why, this song didn't come on the radio through the process, but it was in my head for, like, two months - just that song on repeat. So that one. It's a catchy song," said Prentice. Brandon Flynn picked Gomez' most recent collaboration with Kygo, titled "It Ain't Me." "Oh God, the name is escaping me, but the new one with Kygo is, like, the best one ever! I can't stop listening to it," said Flynn. Tommy Dorfman said the lyrics on the track "Sober" resonated for him. "She has this song called 'Sober' that I really love. Yeah, it's off the 'Revival' album. It's pretty, like, low-key. I don't think it was a single, but it's probably my favorite song," he said. "It's just really beautiful. Yeah, the lyrics I connect to." Derek Luke admitted he didn't know any of Gomez' music, but his nieces and nephews certainly do. "No, I have not, but I have 15 nieces and nephews that make sure I know who is current," he said. "My nieces, they love her. Even my older friends love Selena, you know, asking who, how is she? And she's a great businesswoman." "13 Reasons Why" is now streaming on Netflix.

Loretta Lynn returns after stroke to honor Alan Jackson at Country Music Hall of Fame induction
(23 Oct 2017) LORETTA LYNN RETURNS AFTER STROKE TO HONOR ALAN JACKSON AT COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME INDUCTION Country icon Loretta Lynn returned to the Country Music Hall of Fame for the first time since she suffered a stroke in May, to formally induct Alan Jackson, Sunday (22 OCT. 2017). Jackson joined late guitarist and singer Jerry Reed and songwriter Don Schlitz to become the newest members of the Country Music Hall of Fame during the ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee. Lynn, who cancelled her tour dates this year to recover, said Jackson was the only person that could make her leave her house. She recalled meeting Jackson when he was a nervous young artist decades ago and knowing then that he would "be one of the greatest singers in country music." "He hadn't let me down," said Lynn, who is also a member of the Hall of Fame. The 59-year-old Jackson is one of country music's most successful solo artists, having sold nearly 45 million albums in the United States and had 26 singles reach the top of the Billboard country charts. Many of his hits became instant classics, from the bar-room staple "Chattahoochee" to the somber "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)" written after Sept. 11, 2001. Reed, who died at age 71 in 2008, was first known as an in demand studio musician with a unique finger picking style on the guitar. He played for and wrote songs for stars like Elvis Presley and Porter Wagoner. In later years, he started appearing in TV and movies, most notably playing Burt Reynolds' sidekick in "Smokey and the Bandit." He also sang many of the songs on the soundtrack, including "East Bound and Down." His daughters, Seidina Hubbard and Lottie Zavala, accepted the honor on his behalf. Schlitz, 65, from Durham, North Carolina, had his first songwriting hit in 1978 when Kenny Rogers recorded his song "The Gambler," which became Rogers' signature song throughout his career. Songs he helped write include "On the Other Hand" and "Forever and Ever, Amen," both sung by Randy Travis. Aloe Blacc and Vince Gill sang a duet version of "The Gambler" at the ceremony, while singers Charlie Worsham and Mary Chapin Carpenter also performed his songs in his honor.

Mom: Teen Hoops Star Has On-Court 'Alter Ego'
(6 Nov 2017) HE'S ONE OF THE NATION'S TOP EIGHTH-GRADE BASKETBALL PROSPECTS, BUT AT HOME ... SOUNDBITE: (English) Edith Bates, Emoni's Mother: "Emoni Bates is just my son to me." HE'S A SOFT-SPOKEN 13-YEAR-OLD WHO LIKES TO SPEND TIME WITH HIS FAMILY. TO OTHERS, HE'S A TOUGH-MINDED, AGGRESSIVE PLAYER UNAFRAID TO TANGLE WITH AN OPPONENT. SOUNDBITE: (English) Edith Bates, Emoni's Mother: "It's his alter ego when he's on the court." THAT ALTER EGO WAS ON FULL DISPLAY DURING A RECENT GAME ... WHEN EMONI'S (uh-MON'-eez) TEAM OF TALENTED MIDDLE SCHOOLERS, LOOKING FOR BETTER COMPETITION, WENT UP AGAINST HIGH-SCHOOL PLAYERS … GETTING INTO AN ALTERCATION WITH AN OPPONENT EMONI SAYS DISRESPECTED HIM. SOUNDBITE: (English) Emoni Bates, Star Basketball Player: ++partially covered with b-roll++ "During the game, he kept messing with me, talking to me. I was controlling it at first, and then he had said something to me again, so that led to me pushing him. So, that's what happened. I'm not the type of person to lay back when people are talking to me disrespectfully." EDITH BATES IS URGING PATIENCE AMONG THOSE KEEPING AN EYE ON HER SON. SOUNDBITE: (English) Edith Bates, Emoni's Mother: ++partially covered with b-roll++ "I feel like he has the world on his shoulders, and he's handling it very well. But I want them to see him as an adolescent who is growing and developing." BEING THE CENTER OF ATTENTION IS NOTHING NEW FOR EMONI … WHO ALREADY HAS DRAWN INTEREST FROM A NUMBER OF COLLEGE PROGRAMS, INCLUDING DEPAUL, WHICH OFFERED HIM A SCHOLARSHIP. SOUNDBITE: (English) Emoni Bates, Star Basketball Player: "I was excited, because it was my first offer, but there's plenty more to come." BEFORE HE CAN EVEN THINK ABOUT COLLEGE, THOUGH, EMONI NEEDS TO PICK A HIGH SCHOOL. JESSE DAVIS, COACH OF NEARBY LINCOLN HIGH AND A LONGTIME FAMILY FRIEND, SAYS EMONI COULD GO PRETTY MUCH ANYWHERE HE WANTS. SOUNDBITE: (English) Jesse Davis, Family Friend: ++partially covered with b-roll++ "He's 6-7, long wingspan, can shoot the ball, dribble it. I mean, it's just expected. He's a great basketball player at his age right now. … Any coach in the country would want him to play for him." REGARDLESS OF WHERE THEIR SON GOES TO SCHOOL NEXT YEAR, BATES SAYS SHE AND HER HUSBAND, E.J., WILL CONTINUE TO WORK TO KEEP EMONI HEADED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. SOUNDBITE: (English) Edith Bates, Emoni's Mother: ++fully covered with b-roll++ "I know sometimes basketball tends to pull him away, but I always pull him back in. And that's his reality check. That's how we handle that _ keeping him grounded at home, helping him to make the best decisions dealing with the outside." ONE OF THE WAYS EMONI AVOIDS DISTRACTIONS IS BY FOCUSING ON IMPROVING HIS GAME AND HIS BODY. AND NOT CARRYING THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD ON HIS SHOULDERS.

Theatergoers are 'speechless' after attending 'Hamilton' debut in London, includes video of London E
(6 Dec 2017) 'HAMILTON' DEBUTS IN LONDON TO 'SPEECHLESS' CROWD The smash musical "Hamilton" has finally jumped the pond to London. The show, about the life of American founding father Alexander Hamilton, debuted its first preview show Wednesday (6 DEC. 2017) on London's West End at the Victoria Palace theatre. Created by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the score is largely hip-hop music. "Hamilton" won 11 Tony Awards in 2016 including Best Musical. From the reaction of people leaving Wednesday's (6 DEC. 2017) show, the accolades now make sense. "I'm literally speechless. Had me shaking like from the first second. I can't. I can't even put it into words if I'm honest with you," said 17-year-old Emel Kucuk as she left the venue. "For a long time people have waited for it to come over here, listened to the soundtrack and stuff," said Chris Swan, 27. "I'm speechless. You just can't quite describe what it is. Everything is just perfect. It's just amazing." One attendee, 54-year-old Nick Ayer, said although he was impressed with what he saw, the original American version was better. "It was just an amazing production, amazingly written. The set was fantastic. Although it was actually better in America." Also spotted leaving the show, politician and former MP turned London Evening Standard editor, George Osbourne.

(12 Jun 2017) ICE CUBE GETS HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME STAR WITH SUPPORT FROM DR. DRE It was more than just a good day for Ice Cube in Los Angeles on Monday (12 June) as the rapper-turned-actor got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. "Man, I'm so honored to be here. You know, it's a great day," Cube told the crowd, which included his former NWA bandmates Dr. Dre, DJ Yella and MC Ren. Cube, born O'Shea Jackson, included his parents in a long line of thank-yous he delivered while accepting the 2,614th star on the Walk of Fame. "My mother and my father – Doris Jackson, Hosea Jackson. Thank you, mama, for always supporting whatever I wanted to do – whether you was with it or not. You said as long as it kept you out the street, you can do it. Thank you to my father for always being there. A lot of guys don't have they fathers around. And if you want to make a man like this, stay around your son, stay around your kids," he said. On hand to support the 47-year-old entertainer: comedian and actor Martin Lawrence, producer and entrepreneur Russell Simmons, director John Singleton, and more. Music industry titan Dr. Dre made a rare public appearance. "Y'all got to give it up for Dr. Dre. Because we all wouldn't be here without the incredible, incredible - man. Boy, your family tree is -- whew! I love you, Dre," Cube said. "Thank you for letting me hang around you, man. A 15-year-old kid ditching school to hang out around with Dr. Dre." Rapper WC called the honor "long overdue" for Cube, who is promoting a 25th anniversary re-release of his second solo album, "Death Certificate." "Music is not just about entertainment. But it's about understanding. It's about us understanding each other," Cube said. "And we really just want some understanding. You ain't going to like everything I do. But you're going to like most of everything I do. And if you don't like what I got coming, just keep watching, because I'm going to keep coming. I love you guys. Thank you so much!"

Insights into Princess Diana’s life behind closed palace doors from her former bodyguard Ken Wharfe.
(3 Aug 2017) INSIGHTS INTO PRINCESS DIANA'S LIFE BEHIND CLOSED PALACE DOORS FROM HER FORMER BODYGUARD KEN WHARFE Former royal bodyguard Ken Wharfe says his time working for the late Princess Diana was an enjoyable, if sometimes challenging role. Wharfe worked for the Princess between 1986 and 1994. Speaking fondly of the princess, he recalls how she would sometimes slip away from his protection. "It was a challenge, yeah, we had the slip occasionally, it wasn't deliberate, maybe sometimes it was, maybe in a fit of pique, maybe she did get fed up with me or maybe had a point to make, but that's part and parcel of the job which I enjoyed," he says. "I was very lucky to travel with her for eight years around the world in some extraordinary places, but that's one thing. What admired me more about Diana wasn't that, was the way that she seriously attracted herself to those that really wanted her to do something and she did come back to the office and did make something work and was genuinely interested, this wasn't a job of work just to tick the box, oh I've been to that charity, she made things work, made people feel special." Wharfe is a contributor to documentary, "Diana: In Her Own Words," providing commentary on recordings of the late Princess made by voice coach Peter Settelen at Diana's Kensington Palace residence in 1992 and 1993, just after Diana and Charles separated. The tapes were made to help Diana practice public speaking as she struck out on her own, and feature the late princess candidly discussing her personal life, commenting on their sex life, her fury at her husband's mistress and her love for another man. Diana Spencer married Prince Charles, heir to the British throne, in 1981 and the couple had two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. They separated in 1992 and divorced in 1996, the year before Diana died in a car crash in Paris, aged 36. Charles married his longtime paramour Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005. In the recordings, Diana also describes confronting her husband and Parker Bowles at a party - a moment Wharfe says marked "the real beginning of the end" of the royal marriage. "She realized there was no chance of reconciliation," he said. "There was only one direction, and that was divorce." "This was the occasion of Camilla's sister's birthday and she and the Prince of Wales went to this party, which to me was slightly surprising, because Diana must have known this was going to be a difficult one, knowing that Camilla would be there, but that wasn't for me to say, I did my bit," he recalls. "We eventually confronted Charles and Camilla, who were sat on a sofa talking somewhere else in the house. Diana, remarkably calm, said to Camilla, 'Look, don't treat me like an idiot, I know what's going on' and at that point, Camilla said something really strange, which I said in the film, never really understood it, she said 'It's ok for you, you've got two wonderful boys'. Now I knew at this particular point, any chance of any reconciliation here was seriously out of the question and as I say in the film, this was then the real beginning of the end." Wharfe - who has a new book coming out on his time with the princess - says the documentary is a valuable reminder of Diana's role in "the reshaping of the monarchy." Her death unleashed a public outpouring of grief in Britain and around the world. The royal family, whose stoic reserve suddenly seemed out of touch, has since softened its stiff upper lip. William and Harry both campaign for more open discussion of mental health, and have spoken of their own struggles after their mother's death. "They are picking up exactly where their mother left off," Wharfe said You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/3d9dbd56aaf3f80c03aab18bbcc78514 Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

The key to flat abs according to celebrity fitness trainer Jeanette Jenkins
(12 Jan 2017) THE KEY TO FLAT ABS ACCORDING TO CELEBRITY FITNESS TRAINER JEANETTE JENKINS The key to flat abs is striking a balance between diet and exercise. That's according to celebrity fitness trainer Jeanette Jenkins. The founder and president of The Hollywood Trainer Club says "if you are eating 2,000, 3000 calories a day but you're doing like a kick-butt 1,000 calorie workout, you are still not going to have that calorie negative." Jenkins, who has worked with stars such as Pink, Alicia Keys, Amber Rose, Camilla Alves and Serena Williams, reckons an average sized woman usually has to "stick to somewhere between 1200 to 1500 calories a day for weight loss and even just for everyday life. If you are eating more than 1500 calories a day, chances are you're going to gain weight." "The average meal size should be for an average woman between three to five hundred calories," says Jenkins. Once your correct calorie intake has been worked out, Jenkins says it's not just about cardio exercises, "you should still train those core muscles in specific core exercises. "Just think logically. How much of your core are you using when you sit on a recumbent bike and cycle? Not too many. Versus when you are up and either hiking, or hill climbing or running or sprinting. You are getting a lot more core rotation and movement in there. Or standing up right on a stair stepper versus leaning on it. So all you people who lean on the machines at the gym, you are no longer using your abs and you are doing yourself a disservice." Jenkins is one of Hollywood's most sought after health and fitness experts with over 25 years' experience. The Hollywood Trainer DVD Collection includes 18 different titles with various full-body exercise videos.

The Doors celebrate 50th anniversary with a special performance
(5 Jan 2017) THE DOORS CELEBRATE 50TH ANNIVERSARY WITH SPECIAL PERFORMANCE Iconic 1960s rock band The Doors came together for a special honor and performance 50 years after releasing their self-titled debut album. Surviving members John Densmore and Robby Krieger joined hundreds of fans Wednesday (4 JAN. 2017) to celebrate January 4 being proclaimed "Day Of The Doors" in Los Angeles. The event took place in Los Angeles' Venice neighborhood, where the band was formed. "Well, it's 50 years of The Doors. We started right here in Venice and we're ending up right here in Venice too so it's all a cycle, you know?" said guitarist Robby Krieger. "The ocean is just right out there and that's where Jim got the idea to write the song 'Moonlight Drive.' So then we went to Hollywood and made it, but our roots are here," added drummer John Densmore. The group, known for hits such as "Light My Fire" and "Riders on the Storm," performed "L.A. Woman" for the crowd. Many fans waited hours in the rain to see the them. "Even though Robby and I sometimes haven't played for years, for me anyway, a couple bars and I'm back. When you do the songs for many, many years over a lifetime they're in your blood and it only takes a second to chase down the magic," said Densmore. Jim Morrison, the band's lead singer and songwriter, died in 1971 at age 27. "I have no idea," said Krieger of Morrison's reaction to the honor. "You know you cannot say what Jim would have done or said because he always would do something different, but I bet you he would've been here and he would've dug it and I think he would've been proud." "I'm sure Ray would've loved it. He was always working the band and this is great," Densmore said. In 2013, keyboardist Ray Manzarek died of bile duct cancer in Rosenheim, Germany. He was 74. As for inspiration, Krieger said he still looks to the oldies. "Well, I listen to '60s music a lot, you know. You know I always try to find something good in today's music and have been failing miserably lately … Yeah, there's always bright spots, but as far as being you know a whole era of music, I am waiting for the next one, something different," he said. While Densmore finds his close to home. "I don't have my finger on the pulse of music. I read a lot and what really inspires me are my grandkids," he said.

Shawn Mendes walks Emporio Armani runway in Milan
(18 Jun 2017) SHAWN MENDES WALKS EMPORIO ARMANI RUNWAY IN MILAN Singer Shawn Mendes took a turn on the Emporio Armani runway Saturday (17 JUNE 2017), showing off the brand's new smart watch line dubbed "Connected." Designers see their future in Millennials, a generation that has unprecedented power to influence and be influenced, thanks to ubiquitous social media. They migrate seamlessly from platform to platform, even from brand to brand. Mendes appeared in a video promoting the watch at the end of the show, and then appeared in life to show it off and take in the fashion crowd as much as it did him. The touchscreen watch is both Android and Apple compatible. Giorgio Armani's latest collection for his Emporio Armani line proposes a dialogue with Japan, no simple cultural appropriation, mixing trademark tailoring with a flourish of martial arts. Dark blue urban suits had a long billowing under jacket, the first hint of the exotic and a clear statement that this not your salary man's workaday wardrobe. Suits were worn with either button-down striped shirts or asymmetrical collarless shirts, both paired with leather cords instead of ties. Notched lapel jackets were belted, or not. A clutch of silken printed jackets, including one with a flock of silvery birds, won a round of appreciative applause. Armani has long played with volumes. For this collection he incorporated martial arts-style Hakama trousers, pleated split pants that have a skirt-like appearance. To demonstrate its versatility, a model performed a series of karate-style kicks. The Hakama-style trousers, sometimes silken, sometimes plaid, were worn with baseball jackets or short-sleeved sweaters with Koi detailing. Hair was pushed from the face with crisscrossing headbands, creating a cartoon Magna-style look of spiking locks. Stars watching the show included actor Armie Hammer and Italian comedian Rosario Fiorello.

(23 Jul 2017) 'JUSTICE LEAGUE' STARS MEET FANS AT COMIC-CON The stars of "Justice League" got up close and personal with their fans on Saturday (22 July) at Comic-Con in San Diego. Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher signed posters and chatted with attendees of the massive pop culture expo.

The footage focused heavily on Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, who emerged as the clear favorite of the fans in the audience who screamed at every shot of the Amazonian warrior. "Wonder Woman" recently became the highest grossing of the four DC Extended Universe films. Affleck plays Batman, Momoa is Aquaman, Fisher is Cyborg and Miller is The Flash in the movie, set for release in November.

(30 Nov 2017) Britain's Queen Elizabeth II went crazy for canines on Thursday, making a flurry of four-legged friends in West Sussex. The Queen was visiting Canine Partners in Heyshott, near Midhurst - a charity that trains dogs to assist people with physical disabilities. A number of dogs were lucky enough to meet the Queen, including a black labrador puppy named Flint, and Yarna, another black lab who tried to present Her Majesty with a bouquet of flowers, but dropped them at zero hour.

So it's a great opportunity," Bonneville said, adding, "And also I get to eat marmalade sandwiches on the train."

(11 Apr 2017) STARS OF '13 REASONS WHY' RECALL THEIR HIGH SCHOOL DAYS Though they play high schoolers in Netflix's "13 Reasons Why," much of the cast missed out on the traditional high school experience. Actor Justin Prentice considers himself lucky to have skipped the cliques and popularity contests showcased in his new teen series. "I was homeschooled, so I was both popular and unpopular simultaneously," he joked. He continued: "I was doing the industry so I blew through it to graduate early so that I could focus on pretending on being in high school." Unlike the character he plays, actor Dylan Minnette had a positive high school experience, albeit not the usual one. "Well, what's boring is I didn't go to an actual high school. I did a charter school and I did most of my work at home. But I had a good friend group though. I'm thankful for that. So my favorite part is just that my life has been good because a lot of people don't have it easy in high school, as we kind of show in this show, so I was lucky," he said. Brandon Larracuente recalled being athletic in school, but he was picked on for his size. "I was on the baseball team, but since I was a lot younger, I was actually picked on a bit at high school. So I was a lot smaller than the big kids so I relate to the show a lot because I was picked on in high school and it was tough. It was tough growing up. But as I got older, I realized that nobody else's opinion mattered but what I think of myself and the way I present myself to the world," he said. Similar to the high schooler he plays in "13 Reasons," Tommy Dorfman was ostracized as a teen. "Oh my gosh! I feel like that's the way I most relate with my character. I definitely felt like this outsider. I grew up in Atlanta. I just wanted to move to New York where I live now like as soon as possible," he said. While writer-producer Brian Yorkey remembered his high school days with mixed emotions. "I love my high school experience. I wouldn't do it again if you paid me 100 million dollars," he said. Yorkey continued: "I think high school is a wonderful time. It's an incredibly complicated time. It is a time that I think so many pieces of popular media tell you you should be a certain way so that when your experience is not quite that, it's a little bit of cognitive dissonance. It's a little disappointing. It makes you think that maybe there is something wrong with you, and the truth is, there's nothing wrong with you. You're just growing up. But you don't know that when you're going through it. You think it's the end of the world." "13 Reasons Why," from executive producer Selena Gomez, is now streaming on Netflix.

Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, Pharrell, Josh Brolin, more attend Chris Cornell's funeral
(27 May 2017) MUSIC'S ELITE AND CELEBRITIES GATHERED TO HONOR CHRIS CORNELL Music's elite and Hollywood stars remembered Chris Cornell at a somber memorial service Friday (26 MAY) that focused on the Soundgarden frontman's love of family and friends as much as it did on his musical achievements as one of rock's leading voices. "Chris was as melodic as The Beatles, as heavy as Sabbath and as haunting as Edgar Allan Poe," Tom Morello, Cornell's Audioslave bandmate, said during his eulogy. Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington and guitarist Brad Delson performed Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" for the crowd of mourners, including Brad Pitt, Pharrell Williams, James Franco, Christian Bale and numerous members of rock royalty, many of whom were moved to tears. Four large portraits of Cornell were on display on a dais where Morello, actor Josh Brolin, Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament, film producer Eric Esrailian and Cornell's Soundgarden bandmates Kim Thayil and Matt Cameron delivered eulogies under overcast skies at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. They all spoke of the rocker's compassion and his delight in his three children. Cameron said he and Cornell had "so many normal dad conversations" about the Cornell kids: Christopher, Toni and Lily. Linda Ramone opened the service with word that Cornell was buried next to her late husband, punk rocker Johnny Ramone, whose headstone features a statue of him playing guitar. Cornell's music played before the hourlong service, and afterward as guests visited his grave site in the Garden of Legends section of Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Among those paying respects were Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield of Metallica, Dave Navarro and Perry Farrell of Jane's Addiction, singer-songwriter Joe Walsh, guitarist Nile Rodgers, rocker Courtney Love and Bush's Gavin Rossdale. Cornell, 52, was pronounced dead May 18 after he was found unresponsive in a Detroit hotel room hours after performing a concert with Soundgarden. Coroner's officials said preliminary autopsy results show the singer hanged himself, but full toxicology results remain pending. The singer's family has disputed the findings and claim Cornell may have taken more of an anti-anxiety drug than he was prescribed. The Seattle native was a leading voice of the grunge movement in the 1990s. Besides Soundgarden, he scored hits as a solo artist and with bands Temple of the Dog and Audioslave. He is survived by his wife and three children.

Released imam on life in Gambia after Jammeh
(2 Feb 2017) Locked inside a tiny cell in Gambia for more than 15 months, Imam Alhagie Ousman Sawaneh sought the answer to just one question: "What have I done?" Like so many others, he had few answers as to why he was targeted and imprisoned by the regime of Yahya Jammeh. The 65-year-old was picked up as he led volunteers clearing grass in a cemetery in October 2015. He had helped present a petition calling for the release of arrested rice farmers, but Sawaneh never thought that that would cost him his freedom. The Imam was released on 24 January from a prison in the Central River Region, just days after Jammeh fled into exile in Equatorial Guinea under an arrangement brokered by fellow West African leaders. Jammeh's departure was the end to a political crisis sparked by his refusal to cede power after losing the presidential election to opposition candidate Adama Barrow. In the final days of Jammeh's rule, a number of political prisoners were released - but many others are believed to still be held. Rights groups are calling on the new government to free them all and start investigating what happened to those who disappeared and are feared dead. President Barrow is adamant that talk of prosecutions is premature, and that the focus must remain on investigating rights abuses under Jammeh's rule. He is also talking about putting together a truth and reconciliation commission, similar to the one put into place after apartheid in South Africa. Sawaneh is determined that Gambia's future will be bright - if Gambians on all sides join forces, and Barrow works for the people who elected him.

Mosul residents start clean-up after IS
(30 Jan 2017) Residents of eastern Mosul have started to clean up their city after two and a half years of rule by Islamic State militants and the battle that dislodged them. Students are painting over the extremists' murals and men are filling in bomb craters and clearing away the rubble of the nearly three-month-long battle that left Iraqi forces in control of half the city. Shops are also reopening. Iraqi forces have already started redeploying their forces in preparation for the battle to take the western side of the city as well, which is expected to start in the coming weeks. Mosul is the last urban stronghold of IS.

Keri Russell joined by 'Felicity' and 'The Americans' co-stars for her Walk of Fame induction
(30 May 2017) KERI RUSSELL'S 'FELICITY,' 'THE AMERICANS' CO-STARS CELEBRATE HER WALK OF FAME HONOR While most celebrities soak up the chance to receive a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, J.J. Abrams teased that it's quite the opposite for Keri Russell. "I don't care if there are 3215 other stars. There's never been one placed representing someone with a bigger heart or more talent. I know Keri over many years. I know how social she isn't. I can't tell you how much she hates this," said J.J. Abrams. Abrams, co-creator of Russell's cult classic TV hit "Felicity," was on hand at the actress' star ceremony Tuesday (30 MAY 2017) in Los Angeles. "And she is one of the sweetest people, one of the most wonderful friends, mothers, co-workers that you could ever hope to know. So it is an honor for all of us who know and love Keri to support the 3216th star in honor of our dear friend, Ms. Keri Russell," he told the crowd. Russell's boyfriend and her "The Americans" co-star Matthew Rhys also attended the celebration. During her short speech, Russell joked that perhaps the honor had a different meaning. "I have to admit, when I first heard about this I was a little surprised and confused because when I think of Hollywood stars, I think of these really iconic people like Judy Garland or Johnny Carson. And I thought, 'Do they know something that I don't know?' Like am I about to die or is it over? Like is this it for my career? Like at the twilight of my career? Like you've done that college kid, the Russian spy, and now it's done? Here is your star, make room for other people," she said. Russell told the crowd about a family friend who recorded her first interview on camera as a child. "And he sat us down and said, 'State your name, age, and what you want to be when you grow up.' And he had said to me, 'Do you want to be an actress?' And re-watching the video years later, I say 'No, I don't.' And I said, 'What I want to do is travel around the world and take pictures.' And I feel like that's what I get to do in some way. I get to travel the world and see these things I have never seen and meet incredible people and live this wild adventure that this career affords and I am very thankful for it. So thank you so much and thank you," she said. After the event, Russell admitted it was a bit of an out of body experience. "It's so wild! You know, I really meant what I said it's so … When I think of a star on the Walk of Fame, I think of these amazing, you know, artists. People like Judy Garland and Marilyn Monroe. So it is a lot to wrap your head around! But it's an amazing moment. It's really incredible and I think even a few years from now it'll sink in a little bit more when I get out of the nervousness of being here," she said. Along with her "Americans" cast, including Noah Emmerich and Holly Taylor, Russell's "Felicity" co-star Scott Speedman joined in the festivities. "I think it just speaks to a special chemistry of what that show was and, for a lot of us, that we're all still friends. It was just a special time, even for Matt and J.J. I think we all grew up on that show. None of us had really been entrenched in that kind of series before so we all learned along the way and kind of grew up," she said of "Felicity." The mom of three hopes to share the special honor with her kids one day. "They're still a little young, but I will definitely bring them," she said. The season 5 finale of "The Americans" airs Tuesday on FX.

Young Yazidi activist returns to home village
(2 Jun 2017) Nadia Murad, the Yazidi human rights activist, Nobel Peace Prize nominee and United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for the Dignity of Survivors of Human Trafficking visited her home village of Kocho in northern Iraq on Thursday. She was herself kidnapped from Kocho in August 2014 and held as a sex slave in Mosul by Islamic State group (IS) militants. Kocho was the scene of a massacre of as many as 600 Yazidi civilians by the extremists who attempted to perpetrate the genocide of the Iraqi religious minority group when they took over much of northern Iraq three years ago. Kocho was retaken by Iraqi Popular Mobilisation Forces, a mainly Shiite pro-government militia, last week. Murad said that much remains to be done to help and recognise the plight of the Yazidi people, thousands of whom were murdered by IS militants. At least 3,000 women and girls are still missing, most of whom thought to be held as sex slaves.

Country stars on the first time they heard Randy Travis sing
(17 Feb 2017) COUNTRY STARS ON THE FIRST TIME THEY HEARD RANDY TRAVIS SING Randy Travis' unmistakable baritone voice shook up the country airwaves when he debuted in the late 1980s with songs like "On the Other Hand" that ushered in a wave of neo-traditional country music. Travis, who is recovering from a stroke he suffered in 2013, was honored by many of his peers during a concert this month in Nashville, Tennessee, that also featured younger singers who grew up listening to his voice on the radio. "Buy Me A Boat" singer Chris Jansen said hearing Travis made him want to pursue music. "Well, anytime you hear Randy Travis' music, it's an experience, period," said Jansen. "Because it's real, number one. It's real stories and I can identify with them. So when I heard it, I was like, 'Wow, this is what country music is and I want to do that.'" "American Idol" alum Scotty McCreery said in North Carolina, Travis was all over the stereo. "I grew up back in North Carolina and he is royalty back there in country music," McCreery said. "I would say it was very early on. I was learning his stuff on guitar and playing it all over the place. So I was a young kid for sure." Mark Chesnutt said Travis' voice reminded him of George Jones. "The first time I heard Randy Travis was back in the '80s, I guess," Chesnutt said. "Maybe '85 or something like that. I was driving my truck up to Jasper, Texas to do a gig I had booked up there. I was listening to the radio and they played a brand new record by a guy named Randy Travis. And they played 'On the Other Hand.' And right then, man, I just couldn't stand it anymore. I thought, 'Wow, this is what it's all about.' I finally heard a guy that had a voice that reminded me of George Jones, but was his own." Joe Nichols said his father played him Travis' debut album, "Storms of Life" while they were taking his mother to the hospital to give birth to Nichols' baby sister. "My dad had just bought the 'Storms of Life' tape," Nichols said. "1987 I believe. The tape had been out a couple of years. He loved the song '1982' and 'I Told You So,' 'On the Other Hand.' And he finally bought the record and I think he put it in when we were driving about 20-30 minutes to deliver my little sister. It was something that I wanted to repeat over and over again. And I thought it was a really great country song. So I feel in love with it immediately."

Paul Schrader: 'We’re in a very odd and unfortunate place in America'
(31 Aug 2017) PAUL SCHRADER: 'WE'RE IN A VERY ODD AND UNFORTUNATE PLACE IN AMERICA' Storm Harvey's inundation of Houston has driven home the devastating power of nature, and given new urgency to questions about humanity's effect on the environment. Thousands of miles away in sunny Italy, ecological crisis and spiritual malaise are at the heart of Paul Schrader's "First Reformed," which has its world premiere Thursday (31 AUG. 2017) at the Venice International Film Festival. Schrader is not the only director in Venice exploring catastrophic environmental effects. Both Ai Weiwei's documentary "Human Flow" and Alexander Payne's sci-fi story "Downsizing" show the vast impacts of a changing climate on humanity. Schrader is not surprised. He says the current global situation brings age-old questions about the meaning of life and death into the foreground. "The environmental crisis has put the kind of arguments and debates that have been going on for three thousand years in the history of philosophy and theology in to bold face because the whole question of 'what is man?' looks like it may be coming to a decision," says Schrader. The American filmmaker, who is best known for delivering blood, sweat and visceral shocks, from Martin Scorsese's "Taxi Driver" and "Raging Bull," both of which he wrote, was quick to criticize the current political climate in his country. "We're in a very odd and unfortunate place in America," said Schrader. "I remember thinking a half dozen years ago about (Silvio) Berlusconi (former Prime Minister of Italy) and saying 'that can never happen here.' Well it did happen here and we now have our own Berlusconi. So much for American hubris." "First Reformed" is a spiritual thriller in which the conflict rages inside Ethan Hawke's character, Rev. Toller, the uneasy minister of a historic old church in upstate New York. He is wracked by moral doubts, and when he meets a despairing young environmental activist, the cracks in his belief system begin to split wide open and he starts to contemplate extreme action. Hawke says he was drawn to a film that asks important questions about where faith institutions stand on one of the biggest issues humanity faces. "The religious community has been shockingly quiet in regards to the environment and it has kind of shown no leadership and it's really something that I have thought a lot about because if they were to take a leadership position they could achieve great things and it seems such an obvious… I mean this world, this garden that we live in and honoring it and protecting it, all that stuff can sound kind of corny but if placed in a religious context it could become vital and important and I am so curious to see the response to the film and to see if it can start a dialogue that way or continue it." The film has, so far, been well received by audience members which Hawke's co-star Amanda Seyfried describes as the "perfect scenario." "We really, really loved the movie, we loved working on it. It was made for nothing and it has something really incredible to say and it's super thought provoking and it's at the Venice Film Festival and it got good reviews so we're sitting pretty," she said. "First Reformed" is one of 21 films competing for the festival's top prize, the Golden Lion.

A look at the last remaining paternoster lifts
(25 Aug 2017) LEAD IN The paternoster elevator, which works on a circuit and never stops moving, is rarely seen these days. But despite some concerns over safety, a handful still operate in Central and Eastern Europe. STORY-LINE: Paternoster elevators are a holdover of times when safety regulations were a little more lax, but the unusual elevators are still in use. The name Paternoster, Latin for Lords Prayer, comes not from a last ditch effort to nervously atone before jumping on one. It actually gets its name because each car runs on chains on a belt system in a loop, a little like rosary beads on a rosary. Passengers are supposed to exit before the paternoster passes the top or bottom floor. If they don't nothing serious happens, but they must wait to make the turn in the circuit before heading back up or down in the opposite direction. Some people make the turn just for fun to see what happens. The inventors of the paternoster saw it as a way to deliver more people up and down floors without as a long of a wait. The disadvantage is they could be very dangerous if they don't have an emergency shut off triggered by an obstruction. This one in Prague's Lucerna Palace, a downtown Art Deco shopping passage, has an emergency shut off. There are dozens of decades old paternosters still in use in the Czech Republic, where they are mainly used by staff in government buildings. A few are open to the public to ride. There are also as many 200 of them still in use in the Germany. But they are slowly being replaced, since new ones are no longer allowed to be installed in buildings. And a few remain in the UK where the invention of the paternoster, dating to the 19th century, has its origins.

Prince Harry and Meghan meet students at Nottingham Academy
(1 Dec 2017) Prince Harry and fiancee Meghan Markle on Friday visited Nottingham Academy where they met students and watched a rap performance. The couple's visit to Nottingham was their first official commitment since they announced their engagement on Monday.

(31 May 2012) As Britain prepares to celebrate the diamond jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, the Queen herself can't see what all the fuss is about - according to her cousin and close friend, Lady Elizabeth Anson. While the world may associate the Queen with the pomp and pageantry of glittering events such as the state opening of parliament a few weeks ago, the monarch is described as a "modest" person who has been surprised by the outpouring of affection among her subjects. "She's really quite taken aback about this," Lady Elizabeth told The Associated Press. "What's sweet is that she's incredibly modest as far as these things are concerned." The Queen has spent her life in the centre of the public gaze, and has spent much of the year to date on a tour of Britain. This included a visit in March to the royal family's favourite food store, Fortnum and Mason - in the company of Camilla, the wife of her son Prince Charles, and Catherine, the wife of her grandson Prince William. But according to Lady Elizabeth, when the Queen is at home or on holiday with the family, she just wants to lead as ordinary a life as possible. "When she's on holiday, and we have barbecue lunches outside or picnic lunches, there aren't staff laying the table. The Queen is in charge of the table and the candles. There are no members of staff." Lady Elizabeth is a royal in her own right, as the daughter of the late Princess Anne of Denmark. But her parents separated when she was four, and her father died when she was just sixteen. The Queen helped to fill the void, mentoring Lady Elizabeth and taking her under her wing. Lady Elizabeth has remained close not just to the Queen but to most of the European royals. Her business, Party Planners, has catered many high-profile royal functions, including a number of state banquets. Lady Elizabeth revealed that the Queen takes a hands-on approach to royal banquets, personally checking the table, the menu, the seating plan and the flowers. Royal banquets don't just occur without any regal involvement, she points out. The Queen herself makes them happen. "She is a supreme hostess, so when it comes to the planning of things, don't think that she has just let the chef decide what everybody's going to have for lunch in the Palace that day - it's her." And when important guests are staying in Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle during state visits, the Queen always checks the bedrooms to ensure they are in suitable shape, Lady Elizabeth said. Lady Elizabeth said the Queen was very much looking forward to the four-day centrepiece of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, starting this weekend. The celebrations include a river pageant along the Thames, a carriage procession through the streets, and the event that Lady Elizabeth says the Queen's looking forward to more than anything else - an afternoon watching horse racing.

Spelling Bee Champ Shares Study Secrets
(2 Jun 2017) Ananya Vinay showed little emotion as she plowed through word after mystifying word in the final rounds of the Scripps National Spelling Bee. She says, for her, it's a sport. "I like words and I like language and once I get started I don't want to quit. I just want to keep on going." A day after winning the Bee, Ananya shared some of the study strategies she used during her two years of preparation for that moment. She says the key is reading, lots of reading, and studying foreign languages. "Well, really, it's hard to do roots for any language other than Latin or Greek for the other languages you just have to figure out roots and what rules and what makes sense in the word," she said. She was sure to point out that it was her own motivation, not parental prodding, that kept her on track. Ananya didn't come into the bee as the most heralded speller, but she outclassed her better-known competitors and survived a long duel with 14-year-old Rohan Rajeev to win the 90th Scripps bee on Thursday. And she never looked all that impressed by the words she was given. The final word, marocain, which is a type of fabric, she says she was already pretty sure of before she gave the answer. "I just confirmed the definition and then I asked the origin to make sure that my spelling made sense," she said. Watching from the audience, her father, Vinay Sreekumar, says he could tell she was calm and confident up to the last minute. "It was not a surprise for us that she won yesterday, because I know that she's worked very hard," he said. The last 14 winners of the Scripps National Spelling Bee were Indian-American. Sreekumar, an Indian immigrant, attributes that to a cultural emphasis on education. "And I think it's that thread which is kind of getting passed on." Ananya will take home more than 40,000 US dollars in cash and prizes, which she plans to split with her younger brother and use toward college tuition.

Guitar Museum featuring rare instruments opens in Nashville
(27 Apr 2017) RARE GUITARS ON DISPLAY IN NASHVILLE A unique collection of rare guitars is now on display in Nashville at Belmont University. Bluegrass musician and singer Ricky Skaggs and country star Vince Gill got a chance to play some of the rare instruments during the grand opening of the Gallery of Iconic Guitars on Tuesday (25 APRIL 2017). The collection belonged to the late Steven Kern Shaw, who was a philanthropist and the grandson of Jerome Kern who was one of America's foremost composers of musical theater and popular music. Some of the instruments on display include: a 1939 Martin D-45, one of only 91 made; a 1923 Gibson F-5 mandolin, signed by designer Lloyd Loar; and a 1887 Martin 0-28. "It's really amazing quality stuff," said Skaggs, an avid collector himself. "In my whole lifetime, I have only held three D-45 pre war guitars. Two of them are in here. It's really amazing." Gill said what is unique is that Belmont University will allow these instruments to be played, not just stuck behind glass. "If you are a nut for instruments, they are not only beautiful to look at," Gill said. "For the opportunity for some of these kids are going to get to maybe use some of these instruments, record with some of these instruments and get a real understanding of what a fine fine instrument can do." Gill said that while these instruments weren't famous for who owned them or played them like instruments at the Country Music Hall of Fame, they are famous as works of art. "They are important to our history," Gill said. "They paint our history, they tell our history just as much as the songs that were written on them and the songs that were sung on them." Skaggs said the gallery allows musicians to get very close to the instruments, even close enough to smell them. "You can actually go up and smell," Skaggs said. "You can put your nose in the hole, which I love to do. You can smell these instruments. There's something about smell that takes you back to your grandma's attic, you know, a hope chest or something like that. But these instruments, I don't think they want people to just come up and grab them cause there is security here. But to be able to be close enough to actually see the grain in the instrument, to see the bridge and to see all these things, the intricacies of how they were made and designed. And to look at them and compare them with other guitars. And how just a slight little difference of wood, different carving the top, makes a vast amount of difference in how they sound."

Phoenix, Ramsay talk speedy turnaround for 'You Were Never Really Here'
(27 May 2017) PHOENIX, RAMSAY TALK SPEEDY TURNAROUND FOR 'YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE' Joaquin Phoenix and director Lynne Ramsay Saturday (27 MAY 2017) told the Cannes Film Festival about the speed with which its closing film "You Were Never Really Here" was brought into being. The "We Need to Talk About Kevin" filmmaker returns to the Palme d'Or shortlist with her new tale of corrupt power and vengeance. Based on a novella by Jonathan Ames, "You Were Never Really Here," follows Phoenix as a tormented war veteran trying to save a teenaged girl – played by Ekaterina Samsov - from a sex trafficking ring. As his rescue mission goes wrong, a storm of violence is unleashed that may lead to his awakening. Ramsay adapted the story with Phoenix in mind for the lead role – but had to get ready for shooting in just two months, to slot into a last minute gap in his schedule. "I was meant to do something else and that didn't happen and Lynne and I had spoken already and I said, 'Do you think you could make it this summer?' which was like two months away," recalled Phoenix. "She said, 'Yeah,' I thought, 'Can you really get a movie together that quickly?' and somehow she did. It came together really quickly" "I didn't even think I'd finish the script and then I was going into prep and then getting visas to go to New York because I was living in Santorini at the time so it was really a bit crazy," added Ramsay. "But I think some of that spirit was good." The director arrived at the festival fresh from working on post production, adding Johnny Greenwood's music just last week. Ramsay told the conference she was still editing the final cut. Critics at the conference gave the festival version a warm reception, congratulating Ramsay on the tale's subversion of thriller norms. "We wanted to get away from that idea of the male hero," noted Phoenix, " I remember Jim Wilson, the producer would sometimes describe it as 'the impotence of masculinity' so we kind of established this character that seems very capable but in some ways he's not. I think what's maybe interesting about this film for a genre film is that really the girl is ultimately the one who saves herself, so it's not about man coming in and saving the girl." Ramsay was also asked about her thoughts on the controversy surrounding streaming-only films in this year's competition. After insisting she had not been following the debate, Ramsay noted, "I believe in movies being projected, going to this technical rehearsal seeing a film on the big screen, that's an experience so obviously as a filmmaker I believe in that, but also Amazon helped to finance my film, Ted Hope, who's the head of Amazon is a film buff, he knows every movie and he's really helped me so – and I think there's some really good stuff coming on TV too, 'Twin Peaks' and 'Top of the Lake' so it's a tough time, but I really hope we always have theatrical releases." "You Were Never Really Here" is part financed by Amazon Studios – which has a policy of screening its original movies on the big screen before transferring them to its streaming service. Ramsay has won four awards at the festival in previous years, for her short films "Small Deaths" and "Gasman" and her English/Spanish language tale "Morvern Callar." "We Need to Talk About Kevin" was launched in Cannes, where it screened in competition in 2011. The winner of the Palme d'Or is announced on Sunday 28 May.

India cordons off Kashmir villages

Various of Indian army soldiers leaving after the search operation 3. Various of Indian soldiers in an apple orchard 4. Various of Indian soldiers standing next to a paramilitary vehicle Srinagar, Indian-controlled Kashmir - 4 May 2017 5.

Student throwing a stone at the police 8. Police chasing students into their college STORYLINE: Thousands of Indian government forces cordoned off at least two dozen villages in southern Kashmir on Thursday while they hunted for separatist militants believed to be hiding in the area, but called off the operation after about 10 hours without finding any, police said. They said the operation, launched after a spate of rebel attacks and anti-India protests, was the biggest in recent years in the disputed Himalayan territory. Indian soldiers, paramilitary forces and police searched house-to-house for militants believed hiding in the Shopian area, known for its vast apple orchards. Helicopters and drones hovered over the villages while ground forces stood guard at village entry points. Schools were closed early. Police said some residents resisted the search, and clashes erupted in at least two villages. No injuries were reported. Shopian has emerged as a militant hotbed in the past year since Indian forces killed a popular rebel leader. The rebel's death triggered a massive surge in anti-India protests in the mostly Muslim region, and police say dozens of young people from Shopian have joined rebel ranks. In Srinagar students chanted pro-freedom slogans and threw rocks at government forces in protest against the search operation. Local police tried to control the group of students who emerged out of their college to pelt stones and demand "freedom." Rebel groups have been fighting since 1989 for Kashmir's independence or merger with neighbouring Pakistan, which also claims the mountainous region. Nearly 70,000 people have been killed in the fighting and the ensuing Indian crackdown. India has accused Pakistan of arming and training the rebels, which Pakistan denies. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

Migrants deported from US arrive in Mexico
(23 Feb 2017) A handful of Mexican migrants deported from the United States arrived at Mexico City's airport Wednesday. Mexican government officials spoke to each returning migrant to provide information as to their rights and who to contact for further information. Lucio Cervantes Campos, a Mexican who had lived illegally in the United States for 25 years, told the Associated Press he had gone to pay a ticket in Portland, Oregon when he was arrested upon leaving the courthouse. "They were waiting for me outside," he said of the US authorities who arrested him. President Donald Trump's efforts to crack down on the estimated 11 million immigrants living illegally in the U.S. have spread fear and anxiety and led many people to brace for arrest and to change up their daily routines in hopes of not getting caught. The unease among immigrants has been building but intensified in recent weeks with ever-clearer signs that the Trump administration would jettison the Obama-era policy of focusing mostly on deporting those who had committed serious crimes. The administration announced Tuesday that any immigrant in the country illegally who is charged with or convicted of any offence, or even suspected of a crime, will now be an enforcement priority. That could include people arrested for shoplifting or other minor offences, or those who simply crossed the border illegally.

Jennifer Aniston, Will Arnett join as Jason Bateman gets a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
(26 Jul 2017) ANISTON, ARNETT JOIN AS JASON BATEMAN GETS A HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME STAR Jennifer Aniston did her best to embarass Hollywood Walk of Fame honoree Jason Bateman on Wednesday (26 July) -- showing off photos from his child actor days including the cover of Muppet Magazine. "This little Muppet. I mean who doesn't love – honestly – I mean, once you've made it on the cover of Muppet Magazine, I mean haven't you done it all? Who needs a star?!" she told a crowd at the ceremony along Hollywood Boulevard. Aniston said she calls Bateman "grandpa" -- he often visits her home and sits down immediately on the couch to watch a baseball game. "I mean, it's like is he young, is he old? He looks 12, he acts 100. A head of hair that even women envy," she said. Aniston and Bateman have starred together in "Office Christmas Party," "Horrible Bosses" and "The Switch." Bateman's "Arrested Development" co-star Will Arnett also showed up to support the 48-year-old actor, director and producer. Bateman began his career in the early 1980s as a child actor. "The first time that I ever walked on any of these stars was as a little kid. I was skateboarding to an audition. I was about 10 or 11," he said. "I mean, there was a permanence to it. An indicator of having spent so much time on something that was just too far out there in the ether for me. And of course 38 years went by like that, and I'm still the anxious little kid with a headshot and a skateboard. But now I am the father of a 10-year-old and a five-year-old. And I have a wife that I love with everything that I've got." Bateman stars in the new Netflix series "Ozark" and begins shooting another season of "Arrested Development" for the streaming giant in a few weeks. He posed with his wife Amanda Anka and daughters Francesca and Maple after the ceremony, and said he doesn't care how his fans treat his star – the 2,616th on the Walk of Fame. "Bang it up. It's a piece of sidewalk. Treat it as such, I suppose," he said.

Richard Armitage teases Season 2 of 'Berlin Station' from city set
(27 Jul 2017) RICHARD ARMITAGE TEASES SEASON 2 OF 'BERLIN STATION' FROM CITY SET Richard Armitage has been filming the second season of TV spy drama "Berlin Station" in Germany's capital. He reprises his leading role as spy Daniel Miller, who is this time deep undercover, trying to infiltrate the Far Right movement in the run up to an election. Leland Orser also returns to the show. Speaking from the set, he noted shooting in the summer months has made a pleasant change. "Being here Season 2, we're shooting in the spring and the summer, so it's an entirely different city. Last year we shot throughout the long, wet, cold winter and dressed similarly and basically froze our asses off," he said, "so it's really nice to see the city green, filled with flowers and everybody out on the street." Season 1, broadcast is 2016, dealt with leaks and whistle-blowers at a time when the Edward Snowden controversy was fresh in audiences' minds. Armitage admits that "one of the challenges" of Season 2 has been keeping that current feel, as news and politics march on. "As Season 2 was being constructed and written, the kind of geo-political landscape across America and Europe really, was really shifting, so the subject matter has had to really get in line with that," he notes. "I think we're sort of working in the middle of a seismic shift really, so it's likely that things will change by the time we've finished shooting and by the time it's aired. But it is interesting to not necessarily directly reference real events but at the same time to be relevant and current. It's, you know, it's quite exposing and it's quite a scary place to be, I think." Season 2 also features returning star Rhys Ifans, and new cast members Ashley Judd, Keke Palmer and Thomas Kretschmann.

Prince death spurs his 1980s band The Revolution to reunite for tour
(19 Apr 2017) PRINCE DEATH SPURS HIS 1980S BAND THE REVOLUTION TO REUNITE FOR TOUR For members of Prince's 1980s backing band The Revolution, reuniting and hitting the road for a spring U.S. tour is how they are coping with the "Purple Rain" pop superstar's unexpected death a year ago. "It's not sentimental," said guitarist Wendy Melvoin, sitting on a couch with other members of The Revolution during a break at their Minneapolis rehearsal space Wednesday (19 APRIL 2017). "We're not leading with, like, 'Oh, we need to go and just like go through our old yearbook and look at how great we looked back then.'" Instead, Melvoin insists, when the band is playing, "the energy is in the bottle. We're taking it to the people who are grieving like we are, and letting them have a little bit of relief." When Prince died of an accidental painkiller overdose, members of The Revolution were mourning at a Minneapolis hotel when they made an impromptu video, promising to reunite for shows honoring their one-time flamboyant front man. In September, they performed three sold-out shows at the fabled First Avenue nightclub -- setting of Prince's hit 1984 movie "Purple Rain." And now The Revolution is preparing to kick off a national tour Friday at Paisley Park in the Minneapolis suburb of Chanhassen on the anniversary of Prince's death. The tour includes stops in Chicago, Washington, D.C., New York, Cleveland, Detroit, Los Angeles and San Francisco before ending in Seattle in July 15. "It was a powerful time in all of our lives," Melvoin recalls of the band coming together to mourn Prince. "And this is part of our grief. And this is what we're doing as we're mourning through this." Melvoin is joined by bassist BrownMark, keyboardists Matt Fink and Lisa Coleman, and drummer Bobby Z. The reunited Revolution plans to play Prince's synthesizer-heavy 1980s music through his lauded 1987 double album "Sign o' the Times." Prince may be gone, BrownMark said, "but we have the ability now to give people a glimpse of what we experienced with him. And I think that's a powerful thing. I know it helped me heal." While Prince had a reputation as a perfectionist, members of The Revolution remember the good times goofing in the studio. "We had fun. We had a lot of fun. Sometimes we would be rehearsing and we'd crack up, we'd just laugh for an hour, cracking jokes," BrownMark recalls. "We'd go play softball," keyboardist Fink said. "'OK, we're not going to rehearse today, let's go play softball.'" After years of recording and touring with The Revolution, Prince "did what any boss would do and just put it (the band) to bed," Bobby Z. said. "That intense run we had, all those years, it was starting to come apart at the seams, with personalities and under that kind of pressure, just like human beings do, and he just kind of made a decision," the drummer said. "And he wanted to move on as basically a solo artist with a backing band, no disrespect. But this was a band he was a very critical member of. And we drove him kind of crazy, as you can tell." Whether The Revolution will continue beyond this tour is an open question. "We'd love to be able to see if there are some legs with this," Melvoin said. "But we got to go out, we got to get feedback, we've got to see what's going on."

(30 Mar 2017) ROGER DALTREY: 'DEAD DOG' WOULD HAVE BEATEN HILLARY CLINTON Roger Daltrey says "a dead dog" would have beaten Hillary Clinton in the U.S. presidential election. The Who's legendary front man tells the British music news website NME that President Donald Trump "really didn't win" the election because Democrats "threw it away." The British singer also is speaking in favor of his country's move to leave the European Union. He says when the dust settles from the Brexit move, "I think that it'll be seen that it's the right thing for this country to have done." Daltrey's comments follow those of British-born punk legend Johnny Rotten, who told "Good Morning Britain" earlier this week that he supported the Brexit vote. The former Sex Pistols singer said the working class has spoken and he's "one of them and ... with them."

Quentin Tarantino walks Tribeca red carpet for 25th anniversary of 'Reservoir Dogs'
(29 Apr 2017) QUENTIN TARANTINO WALKS TRIBECA RED CARPET FOR THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF 'RESERVOIR DOGS' From the moment it was released in 1992, the gritty, violent and funny "Reservoir Dogs" became a cult hit, making the career of its then rookie director, Quentin Tarantino. Part of its uniqueness was the color aliases of each character - and as he walked the red carpet Friday ( 28 APRIL) for its 25th anniversary screening at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York., Tarantino explained why. "I was trying to come up with something that was like, tough guy, existential, deadpan, comedic, you know. And to me the idea of Mr. White, Mr. Orange, Mr., you know, Mr. Blonde, which I thought was kind of clever. I thought that was really interesting. It fed into the tough guy, existential, almost French noir kind of aesthetic of the movie." The film has gone on to become a classic,thanks to its non-linear storytelling and fresh use of dialogue. One of the most talked about scenes happens during the film's cold opening, which takes place in a diner, and includes a rant on tipping the waitress. Tarantino never doubted the scene was perfect for the film. "Well, I never really though of it as a chance. I liked the scene. I though the dialogue was really good. I thought it was funny, you know. I didn't think that was chancy. Most of the people that responded to the script, one of the things they responded was that opening scene," Tarantino said. It was in that scene that Tarantino gave his theory on what Madonna's "Like a Virgin" was really about. That set him on a path to appear in the films that he writes and directs. "Well, it was actually Harvey's urging, because he basically thought I did the Madonna speech better than anybody we auditioned, you know. I had done it for him a few times, and he thought I did it better than anybody else, so he thought I should be in the film," the filmmaker explained. Harvey Weinstein's Miramax Films produced "Reservoir Dogs." But it was another Harvey that anchored the cast. That's Harvey Keitel, and he starred as Mr. White. Keitel describes the magic that compelled him to appear in the film: "Well, the first thing I saw of his was his writing. I didn't see him in person, but he certainly transformed whatever it was he was thinking about, artistically, onto the page. It was a very special screenplay." The violent crime thriller depicts the proceedings before and after a failed jewelry store heist. The story is intensified when the gang feels there's an undercover cop amongst them. For Steve Buscemi, the role of Mr. Pink made him a star, and he feels a debt of gratitude to Tarantino. "Look, it was a special time in my life. I loved making the film. I'm so grateful for what the film did for me as an actor. But more than that, I'm just really proud to, you know, to be part of a work that people really seem to respond to," Buscemi said. The film also stars Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, and the late Chris Penn and Lawrence Tierney. Tarantino and the cast held a panel after the screening, discussing the film. The director went on to be one of the most famous faces in Hollywood, producing hits such as "Kill Bill", along with "Pulp Fiction" and "Django Unchained."

The majestic Marwari horse makes a come back
(10 Nov 2017) LEADIN: The magnificent Marwari horse, one of the few indigenous breeds in India, is making a comeback thanks to a breeding centre in Jodhpur. It's supported by a former royal family who hope to preserve the bloodline and purity of the breed, while ensuring the numbers of this special horse grow. STORYLINE: The history of India's royals is full of tales of loyalty and bravery of their beloved horses. The Marwari, one of the oldest breeds in the world, had been the cavalry horse of the Rajput warriors in Rajasthan and a symbol of Marwari aristocracy for centuries. The graceful horse is rated high among the equines for its striking features, build, endurance, hardiness and a tolerance to the severe summer heat. The Marwari has distinctive inward turning ear tips with a slender neck, and is taller than most other breeds. The Rathore rulers of the western Marwar region are credited with breeding the fiery Marwari horse in the 12th century. While there were no documented records kept of the bloodlines, the royals and other nobility tried to ensure the purity of the breed. But the horses faced a decline during the British colonial rule and had to make way for imported thoroughbred horses from Europe and Australia. The degeneration of the breed continued even after India became independent as the royals and noble families lost their titles and assets and sold their stock. Colonel Umaid Singh is the the secretary of the All India Marwari Horse Society formed in 1997. For him the breed represents the Rathore clan's centuries old equestrian tradition and this means it was essential to bring it back from the brink of extinction. "This Marwari horse is a very prestigious, indigenous horse. We have history back… Rana Pratap (Rajput King), Amar Singh Rathore (Rajput nobleman affiliated with the royal house of Marwar), it's …all the horses were Marwaris. After this British regime we had lost the track of these good horses. Then recently in last 20 years or so, we again thought of this horse must be revived, must be preserved in our country and with that deal, the Marwari horse society was formed. In that Marwari society, His Highness Maharaja Jodhpur (Former Maharaja of Jodhpur Gaj Singh), he played a big role." At the horse breeding centre at Balsamand palace in Jodhpur, the Marwari horses have got a new lease of life. Run by the All India Marwari Horse Society , the breeding centre now has 20 highest quality Marwari horses, including 15 broodmares and 5 stallions. The price of Marwari horses within India ranges from 3000 to 4000 U.S. dollars. They are used for safaris, general riding and ceremonial purposes. It costs between 400 to 500 US dollars a month to breed and maintain a horse, according to Col. Singh. Every year, the horses are showcased at an event where breeders, stud farm owners, equestrians and horse lovers gather to promote the Marwari breed. The former Maharaja of Jodhpur Gaj Singh is supporting the venture to preserve the pure breed of the majestic animal. Framed pictures of the former royal on his Marwari horse line the walls of the Umaid Bhawan Palace museum. Gaj Singh's daughter Shivranjani Rajye says indigenous breeds like the Marwari are facing a quality decline due to indiscriminate breeding and lack of codified breed standards. "The breed standard for the Marwari (horse) was being mixed with other breeds like the Arabian and the Sindhi. So, the Marwari breed itself had been dying out. Because I think, there was no standard, there is a book, the old book of standards. So that has been redone over the years, so the Marwari breed then breed with the right horses. So, we have our breeding centres. But then, there is also in Marwar, people have their own stud farms where they do this."

CTE: How Repeated Head Blows Affect the Brain
(7 Sep 2017) What is CTE? CTE stands for Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy. Dr. Ann McKee at the Boston University School of Medicine goes over some of the possible causes. SOUNDBITE (English) Dr. Ann McKee/Boston University School of Medicine "CTE has been associated with repetitive head impacts, that is repetitive concussion and sub concussive injury in contact sport athletes, but also in military veterans." The repetitive head impact linked with CTE impacts the brain. SOUNDBITE (English) Dr. Ann McKee/Boston University School of Medicine "So with repeated impact to the head, the brain inside the skull ricochets back and forth. It goes forward, accelerates and decelerates but it also goes rotationally and that causes the brain inside the skull to actually elongate and stretch and that stretching puts a lot of that physical force in that individual nerve cell, especially the neurons and the axons. And that can lead up to the buildup of Tau." Tau is a definitive sign of CTE. SOUNDBITE (English) Dr. Ann McKee/Boston University School of Medicine "Tau is a normal protein in the brain. Normally its inside the nerve cell and it contributes to what we call the cytoskeleton or the skeleton of the cells. It helps hold up the cell shape.Under abnormal circumstances, like after trauma, like when the nerve cells when the cells are damaged, the TAU actually comes off those, comes off the skeleton. It comes off the microtubules and it starts clumping up and eventually it will kill the cell if enough builds up over time. " Dr. Ann McKee dissects the brain to look for indications of CTE. SOUNDBITE (English) Dr. Ann McKee/Boston University School of Medicine "An individual in his forties, this is a former NFL player who is a person of large statue. You can see the ventricles, the areas of the brain that contain spinal fluid, they are enlarged. This thinning tends to be damaged more than the ventral aspect. That's something we've only really seen in CTE. We can see spaces near the hippocampus, which is part of the brain that is important for learning and for memory. And we can see there has been shrinkage there as well.To see this in such a young individual is quite startling. " There are various types of behavior associated with CTE. SOUNDBITE (English) Dr. Ann McKee/Neuropathologist/Boston University School of Medicine "We see a lot of CTE lesions on the top and the lateral side or the frontal lobe, which is about two-thirds of the forward part of the brain. That's what leads to the symptoms and signs of CTE. There is loss of cognition, loss of memory, some behavioral and personality change and often mood changes like depression." There are ways to preventing CTE SOUNDBITE (English) Dr. Ann McKee/Neuropathologist/Boston University School of Medicine "Well the real key to preventing CTE is preventing exposure to head impact. So anything an individual athlete can do to minimize the amount of head contact, the number of falls or blows. " Researchers will continue to study CTE in order to figure out how to detect it in the future.
