Justin Bieber's Paternity Suit Dropped

>> Wednesday, November 16, 2011

I just feel this is going to go nowwhere and will soon be dropped. Obviously, the woman got what she wanted: publicity.

Justin Bieber and his accuser Mariah Yeater
The suit, which alleged that the pop superstar fathered a child with 20-year-old fan Mariah Yeater, was dismissed last week, says TMZ.com. Her lawyers reportedly withdrew from the case following a call from Bieber's lawyer, Howard Weitzman, threatening legal action.

The case was set to go to court Dec. 15, and Bieber, 17, was prepared to take a paternity test to prove he was not the father of Yeater's 3-month-old baby.

Yeater, who was seeking financial support, may have also faced statutory rape charges. (In the state of California, the age of consent is 18, and Bieber would have been 16 at that time of the alleged sexual encounter, according to Yeater's accusation.)

"It's sad that someone would fabricate malicious, defamatory and demonstrably false claims," a rep for Bieber previously told PEOPLE in a statement. "We will vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to defend and protect Justin against these allegations."

In the suit, Yeater alleged that Bieber, who is currently dating fellow pop star Selena Gomez, lost his virginity to her backstage at an L.A. tour stop.

But Bieber was adamant about drowning out "the rumors" and "the gossip" from the get-go, he previously Tweeted.

"I know that I'm going to be a target," he said two days after the suit was filed, "but I'm never going to be a victim."

Casey Anthony's prosecutor writes his book about the case

Caylee and Casey Anthony

 Retired Florida prosecutor Jeff Ashton calls the trial arguments of Casey Anthony's defense team, which resulted in an acquittal for the accused murderer, "a complete crock of crap" in a new book published Tuesday.

"I've written a book to let people know the truth about the case from my perspective," Ashton tells the Orlando Sentinel of Imperfect Justice, Prosecuting Casey Anthony.

In the 322-page book, the paper reports, the lawyer writes that once her trial was underway Casey told two mental health professionals that her 2-year-old daughter Caylee had drowned in the family swimming pool – deliberately killed by Casey's father, George.

She also told the experts that her father molested her and she feared a similar fate awaited Caylee.

"I have seen my share of liars, but never one quite like this," Ashton writes in the book, according to the Sentinel. Later he states, "In many ways, I think the defense came to mirror the client they represented."

In its report on the book, Central Florida's News 13 quotes Ashton as saying that the introduction of the death penalty in the case was not a good idea, because the jury would never go for it.

Of Anthony's defense attorney, Jose Baez, Ashton writes, as quoted by the Associated Press: "There is an unearned air of arrogance about the man that is incredibly frustrating to witness. The word I used in describing Jose is smarmy: somebody who is slick, underhanded and doesn't shoot straight."

Ashton writes that he felt numb when the verdict was delivered, and he dedicates his book to Caylee, "so no one forgets."

Marquez's dirty secret is now out, Pacquiao is the true winner

>> Tuesday, November 15, 2011

A video showing the “foot tricks” played by Mexican boxer Juan Manuel Marquez against Filipino icon Manny Pacquiao during their bout Saturday night (Sunday in Manila) in Las Vegas, Nevada is going viral over YouTube and Facebook, a report from Radyo Inquirer 990AM said Tuesday.

The video entitled “Foot Stopper Trick by Juan Manuel Marquez” caught the counter-puncher stepping on Pacquiao’s foot six times.

Juan Manuel Marquez left foot steps on the right foot of Manny Pacquiao during their bout last Saturday, Nov. 12, 2001, at MGM Grand, Las Vegas. Pacquiao won a controversial majority decision. KEATS LONDON (PDI-US CORRESPONDENT)
The video showed Marquez stepping on Pacquiao’s foot during the last 0:11 seconds of the 4th round; 1:18 seconds of the 6th round; 1:49 seconds of the 7th round; 1:27 seconds of the 8th round; 1:23 seconds and last 0:52 seconds of the 12th round.

Apart from the video, a picture also spreading on social networking sites showed a member of Marquez’s team giving the Mexican boxer a plastic bottle of unknown yellow fluid.

According to WBO rules, a boxer who is engaged in a fight is only allowed to drink water.

Pacquiao won over Marquez via majority decision. His victory stirred controversy as the public here and abroad thought that Marquez had won or should, at the very least, have gotten a draw.

Marquez said he was “robbed again” of the victory, following two other controversial matches with the Filipino eight-time world champion in 2004 and 2007 which ended in a draw and split decision respectively.

Gloria Arroyo not allowed to leave the country:


An amazing human being, Steve Jobs

>> Friday, October 7, 2011

I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I’ve ever gotten to a college graduation. Today, I want to tell you three stories from my life. That’s it. No big deal. Just three stories.

The first story is about connecting the dots.

I dropped out of Reed College after the first six months, but then stayed around as a drop-in for another 18 months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop out?

It started before I was born. My biological mother was a young, unwed college graduate student, and she decided to put me up for adoption. She felt very strongly that I should be adopted by college graduates, so everything was all set for me to be adopted at birth by a lawyer and his wife. Except that when I popped out they decided at the last minute that they really wanted a girl. So my parents, who were on a waiting list, got a call in the middle of the night asking: “We have an unexpected baby boy; do you want him?” They said: “Of course.” My biological mother later found out that my mother had never graduated from college and that my father had never graduated from high school. She refused to sign the final adoption papers. She only relented a few months later when my parents promised that I would someday go to college.

And 17 years later I did go to college. But I naively chose a college that was almost as expensive as Stanford, and all of my working-class parents’ savings were being spent on my college tuition. After six months, I couldn’t see the value in it. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and no idea how college was going to help me figure it out. And here I was spending all of the money my parents had saved their entire life. So I decided to drop out and trust that it would all work out OK. It was pretty scary at the time, but looking back it was one of the best decisions I ever made. The minute I dropped out I could stop taking the required classes that didn’t interest me, and begin dropping in on the ones that looked interesting.

It wasn’t all romantic. I didn’t have a dorm room, so I slept on the floor in friends’ rooms, I returned coke bottles for the 5¢ deposits to buy food with, and I would walk the 7 miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple. I loved it. And much of what I stumbled into by following my curiosity and intuition turned out to be priceless later on. Let me give you one example:

Reed College at that time offered perhaps the best calligraphy instruction in the country. Throughout the campus every poster, every label on every drawer, was beautifully hand calligraphed. Because I had dropped out and didn’t have to take the normal classes, I decided to take a calligraphy class to learn how to do this. I learned about serif and san serif typefaces, about varying the amount of space between different letter combinations, about what makes great typography great. It was beautiful, historical, artistically subtle in a way that science can’t capture, and I found it fascinating.

None of this had even a hope of any practical application in my life. But ten years later, when we were designing the first Macintosh computer, it all came back to me. And we designed it all into the Mac. It was the first computer with beautiful typography. If I had never dropped in on that single course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts. And since Windows just copied the Mac, it’s likely that no personal computer would have them. If I had never dropped out, I would have never dropped in on this calligraphy class, and personal computers might not have the wonderful typography that they do. Of course it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college. But it was very, very clear looking backwards ten years later.

Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

My second story is about love and loss.

I was lucky — I found what I loved to do early in life. Woz and I started Apple in my parents garage when I was 20. We worked hard, and in 10 years Apple had grown from just the two of us in a garage into a $2 billion company with over 4000 employees. We had just released our finest creation — the Macintosh — a year earlier, and I had just turned 30. And then I got fired.

How can you get fired from a company you started? Well, as Apple grew we hired someone who I thought was very talented to run the company with me, and for the first year or so things went well. But then our visions of the future began to diverge and eventually we had a falling out. When we did, our Board of Directors sided with him. So at 30 I was out. And very publicly out. What had been the focus of my entire adult life was gone, and it was devastating.

I really didn’t know what to do for a few months. I felt that I had let the previous generation of entrepreneurs down – that I had dropped the baton as it was being passed to me. I met with David Packard and Bob Noyce and tried to apologize for screwing up so badly. I was a very public failure, and I even thought about running away from the valley. But something slowly began to dawn on me — I still loved what I did. The turn of events at Apple had not changed that one bit. I had been rejected, but I was still in love. And so I decided to start over.

I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.

During the next five years, I started a company named NeXT, another company named Pixar, and fell in love with an amazing woman who would become my wife. Pixar went on to create the worlds first computer animated feature film, Toy Story, and is now the most successful animation studio in the world. In a remarkable turn of events, Apple bought NeXT, I returned to Apple, and the technology we developed at NeXT is at the heart of Apple’s current renaissance. And Laurene and I have a wonderful family together.

I’m pretty sure none of this would have happened if I hadn’t been fired from Apple. It was awful tasting medicine, but I guess the patient needed it. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.

My third story is about death.

When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

About a year ago I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a scan at 7:30 in the morning, and it clearly showed a tumor on my pancreas. I didn’t even know what a pancreas was. The doctors told me this was almost certainly a type of cancer that is incurable, and that I should expect to live no longer than three to six months. My doctor advised me to go home and get my affairs in order, which is doctor’s code for prepare to die. It means to try to tell your kids everything you thought you’d have the next 10 years to tell them in just a few months. It means to make sure everything is buttoned up so that it will be as easy as possible for your family. It means to say your goodbyes.

I lived with that diagnosis all day. Later that evening I had a biopsy, where they stuck an endoscope down my throat, through my stomach and into my intestines, put a needle into my pancreas and got a few cells from the tumor. I was sedated, but my wife, who was there, told me that when they viewed the cells under a microscope the doctors started crying because it turned out to be a very rare form of pancreatic cancer that is curable with surgery. I had the surgery and I’m fine now.

This was the closest I’ve been to facing death, and I hope it’s the closest I get for a few more decades. Having lived through it, I can now say this to you with a bit more certainty than when death was a useful but purely intellectual concept:

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

When I was young, there was an amazing publication called The Whole Earth Catalog, which was one of the bibles of my generation. It was created by a fellow named Stewart Brand not far from here in Menlo Park, and he brought it to life with his poetic touch. This was in the late 1960′s, before personal computers and desktop publishing, so it was all made with typewriters, scissors and Polaroid cameras. It was sort of like Google in paperback form, 35 years before Google came along: it was idealistic, and overflowing with neat tools and great notions.

Stewart and his team put out several issues of The Whole Earth Catalog, and then when it had run its course, they put out a final issue. It was the mid-1970s, and I was your age. On the back cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were so adventurous. Beneath it were the words: “Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.” It was their farewell message as they signed off. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. And I have always wished that for myself. And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you.

Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.

Thank you all very much. Steve Jobs

Jennifer Aniston has a temper?

But after reading the reason for her temper, I say: why not?
America's sweetheart has a temper!

In the November issue of ELLE, Jennifer Aniston (who directs a short film in Lifetime's Five project) admits she once lost it on set with a male director -- and it got physical!

"I threw a chair at a director. It wasn't my proudest moment," the Horrible Bosses star, 42, admits.

But the outburst had nothing to do with Aniston's own ego or on-set demands. She explains: "He was treating a script supervisor horribly… When the director walked in, I threw a chair at him."

Good thing her aim wasn't so hot. "I missed, of course. I was like, 'You can’t speak to people like that.' I can't tolerate it.”

Aniston, who has appeared in dozens of films in addition to her smash TV show friends, declined to name which director set her off.

Jenn, you're my number one favorite ever!

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony ended their marriage

>> Friday, July 15, 2011

"We have decided to end our marriage. This was a very difficult decision. We have come to amicable conclusion on all matters," they said in a statement. "It is a painful time for all involved, and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time."
The couple are parents to three-year-old twins Max and Emme.
Crooner Anthony, 42, was conspicuously absent at Saturday's star-packed BAFTA Brits to Watch bash in L.A., where wife Lopez, 40, met Prince William and Duchess Kate with mom Guadalupe as her date.

Friends for years, Lopez and Anthony dated briefly in the 1990s. They stepped out again as a couple in early 2004, shortly after Lopez's broken engagement from Ben Affleck, and in the midst of Anthony's divorce from first wife, former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres. They wed at a quiet home wedding in June 2004.

Just last year, they renewed their wedding vows for their sixth anniversary at their Hidden Hills, Calif. estate June 5. "We realized the bets in Vegas [on whether we'd make it] stopped at five years," Anthony joked to Us at the time. (The duo also renewed their vows in 2008, and playfully dirty-danced together at Us Weekly's Hot Hollywood bash in April 2010.)
And as recently as January, singer, actress and American Idol judge Lopez gushed on the Ellen DeGeneres Show about being a parent with Anthony. "As soon as I had the babies, I thought to myself, 'I want to do this a thousand more times...I love this. This is life."

Anthony and first wife Torres share sons Cristin, 10, and Ryan, 7. Lopez (who famously dated Sean Combs in addition to Affleck), had been married twice before: to restauranteur Ojani Noa (they split in 1998) and former backup dancer Cris Judd, to whom she was married from 2001 to 2003.

Arnold Schwarzenegger cheated and fathered a child

>> Tuesday, May 17, 2011

When the news broke that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver separated, I guessed that the reason was infidelity on Arnold's part. Watch this.

SAN FRANCISCO - Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has acknowledged that he fathered a child more than ten years ago with a member of his household staff, the Los Angeles Times reported on Tuesday.

In a statement made in response to questions from the newspaper, Schwarzenegger said: "After leaving the governor's office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago."

"I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry."

A spokesman for Schwarzenegger did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Schwarzenegger, 63, and his wife, Maria Shriver, last week announced they had separated earlier this year. They have been married 25 years and have four children.

The woman involved with Schwarzenegger was not named by the newspaper. However, when contacted by the Los Angeles Times on Monday before the ex-governor issued his statement, she said she had retired in January after 20 years of working with the family. She told the newspaper her then-husband was the child's father.

Later Monday, the woman had no comment when the newspaper informed her of Schwarzenegger's statement.

Shriver, 55, an author and former journalist for NBC, is active with a number of volunteer organizations.

Her mother was the sister of assassinated U.S. President John F. Kennedy and her father, Sargent Shriver, was the Democratic candidate for vice president in 1972. Sargent Shriver died in January at the age of 95.

Though a lifelong Democrat, Shriver campaigned for her Republican husband when he sought to recall and replace then-Governor Gray Davis, a Democrat, in 2003.

She took to the stump to help Schwarzenegger win re-election in 2006.

Since leaving office after two terms as governor, Schwarzenegger has maintained a public life and is planning to star in another version of the "Terminator" movie franchise that made him famous, one industry source has said. — Reuters


Cool Wazoo - really cool!

>> Monday, May 16, 2011

If you are thinking of buying a gift for a new mom, here is one that I'm sure will be loved and appreciated.

[click on picture to enlarge]
The Cool Wazoo is a pad that you can use five ways – in a restaurant high chair, on a swing, in a car seat, in a grocery cart or as a changing pad – to protect your child. It’s heat resistant, water resistant and germ-resistant. It was invented by a stay-at-home mom after her daughter was accidentally burned on a swing that had been overheated by the sun. She funded the idea with her own money and hired a seamstress to come up with the prototype. Though this clever mom originally intended the Cool Wazoo as just a protector for the swing, after consulting Lucky Napkin, she turned the product into a five-in-one to make it more marketable. It sells for $65 in some boutiques and on the company’s web site -- but coming soon, a $19.99 version will be sold in big retail stores.


Pacquiao's response on steroid use twitted by Mosley

>> Friday, May 13, 2011

Apparently, this is what Mosley twitted that made Bob Arum unhappy:

“These are not my words it comes from an article and his sparring partner but if it is true! Then what do you say, please google,” tweeted Mosley. His girlfriend has twitted the same earlier.

I wonder if Mosley twitted this because he believed it or he just wants people to think that this is reason he lost. Did he forget that Pacquiao, in all his kindness and mercy was kind of easy with him during their fight and he still lost?

Here is Pacquiao's response:
"It's false, fabricated. An anonymous post on an internet forum claims an unidentified former Filipino sparring partner injected me with steroids before my fight with Oscar de la Hoya and in subsequent fights,” aniya. “This is completely false, totally fabricated, and, not surprisingly, le­veled by someone who will not even identify himself. I did not even have a Filipino sparring partner during my training for the fight against De La Hoya or for any fight since then.”

“I have never taken steroids, HGH, or any banned performance-enhancing drug. Period. My success in the ring is due to hard work, belief in God, and the support of my fans. Like every boxe­r, I am required to take drug tests in connection with every professional fight in the United States. I have passed every­one, including my fight against De La Hoya and my most recent victory against Shane Mosley.

“I will fight to protect my hard-earned good name and reputation.”


Ashton Kutcher Is Replacing Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men

Excellent choice. Ashton is very funny and perfect for the role.

From People:
The speculation is over. Ashton Kutcher Is Replacing Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men.
Ashton Kutcher, 33, is officially taking over for Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men, CBS announced on Friday.

"I can't replace Charlie Sheen, but I'm going to work my ass off to entertain the hell out of people!" Kutcher, 33, said in a statement.

"We are so lucky to have someone as talented, joyful and just plain remarkable as Ashton joining our family," the hit show's creator Chuck Lorre said.

Sheen reacted to the news on Friday, telling TMZ: "Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer ... Oh wait, so am I!!"

He also took another swipe at Lorre, saying, "Enjoy planet Chuck, Ashton. There is no air, laughter, loyalty, or love there."

Production on the ninth season of the show is scheduled to begin this summer and will air in the fall. [source: People.com]


Oprah’s grand finale's guess: Will and Jada Pinkett Smith

>> Thursday, May 12, 2011

From The Daily:Cementing their place in history as two of Oprah Winfrey’s favorite guests, Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith will appear May 25 on the daytime talk queen’s final show, Flash has learned exclusively.

Speculation about who will appear on the mystery-shrouded last episode has been building as Oprah ends her 25-year run of “The Oprah Show.” Fans’ and journalists’ guesses have included Oprah’s longtime love Stedman Graham, Tom Cruise, Dr. Phil McGraw, Jennifer Aniston and Gabrielle Giffords. It’s not clear how many guests will appear on the final show. And there’s no word on whether the Smiths’ famous kids — “Karate Kid” star Jaden Smith and “Whip My Hair” singer Willow Smith — will join their parents on the couch.

The season already has featured President Obama and Michelle Obama, Michael Douglas, Johnny Depp, and today’s guest Sarah Ferguson. Since the Smiths and the Cruises are close friends, though, we wouldn’t be surprised if Tom and Katie Holmes did end up showing up — maybe to jump on that couch one last time?

The last week of the show also will feature a two-episode rematch between Oprah and James Frey, the controversial writer of “A Million Little Pieces,“ which is being teased as ”the biggest controversy in Oprah show history.”

Speaking of a million little pieces, Oprah’s Harpo Productions is asking $1 million for 30-second commercials for the last week of the show.


Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are separating

>> Monday, May 9, 2011

I was in disbelief when I heard this sad news because they are one of the few couples that I thought have a good marriage. I hate news like this. But of course we don't know what their family are going through. I just pray that things will still work out for their marriage and family.

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver announced Monday night they are separating.

In a joint statement released Monday night, Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger announced they are amicably separating.

"This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us. After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion, and prayer, we came to this decision together. At this time, we are living apart, while we work on the future of our relationship.

"We are continuing to parent our four children together. They are the light and the center of both of our lives.

"We consider this a private matter, and neither we nor any of our friends or family will have further comment.

"We ask for compassion and respect from the media and the public."

The couple has been married for 25 years.

Will and Kate adopted a cute little thing

>> Friday, May 6, 2011

Prince William and his new wife Catherine have adopted an endangered baby penguin called Acorn, a British zoo revealed on Friday.

But Acorn will not be not be moving in with the royal newlyweds any time soon, Chester Zoo

He will instead remain at the zoo in north-west England with 49 other Humbolt penguins.

"Hopefully the happy couple will come and see little Acorn playing in his pool very soon," said a spokesman for the zoo, which gave the penguin to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as a wedding present.

"It's a real honour to be able to boast Prince William and Kate as penguin adopters."

The zoo had asked followers on social networking sites to choose which of its 400 different species the couple should sponsor.

The Humbolt penguins, which are thought to be declining in number due to overfishing of their food and habitat loss, received more than 20 percent of the votes.

The breed is native to several South American countries including Chile, where both William and Catherine spent part of their gap years. [AFP via Yahoo}

"This is a stunt... Lady Gaga tries to continue to shock Catholics and Christians in general: she dresses as a nun... she swallows the rosary. She has now morphed into a caricature of herself,"

To me, I just take this Judas music video as pure entertainment with no real meaning and no spiritual touch at all. It's to the viewer to decide if this is offensive for them or not.


Another sad bullying story

>> Thursday, May 5, 2011

I'm a bully
Bullying + anger + jealousy = death. This is a dangerous behavior but why are we not doing anything to stop this from happening? Too many talks but nothing has been done to end this. I pray that people would join forces to fight bullying where present regardless of who and what he/she is. Protect the innocent and let's protect them now!

Actions not taken by peers could have saved young girl’s lifeBy Kevin Cullen
Globe Columnist / May 5, 2011

Kayla Narey stood in a courtroom in Northampton, talking to a dead girl.

“I’m sorry for the unkind things I said about you,’’ Kayla said to Phoebe Prince, who killed herself 16 months ago.

Kayla and other kids made Phoebe’s life at South Hadley High School a living hell, bullying and shaming her to the point that Phoebe took a scarf that her little sister had given her for Christmas and hanged herself.

“I am immensely ashamed of myself,’’ Kayla said.

Since Phoebe’s suicide, we as a society have grown up a little when it comes to how we look at bullying, and Kayla has grown up enough to engage in some introspection.

“Phoebe,’’ she said, still talking to the dead girl, “I wish we could go back to December . . . 2009.’’

It was then that Phoebe approached Kayla, having found out that they had been dating the same two-timer: Sean Mulveyhill, the football star.

Phoebe had gone out with Sean, not knowing that Sean and Kayla were still an item, an on-again, off-again romance.

Phoebe did something unsolicited, brave, and considerate: She apologized to Kayla. They sat on a bench, the two girls used by the same boy, and they talked.

Kayla’s immediate reaction showed some insight. “I have more respect for you than for my boyfriend,’’ she told Phoebe.

Kayla then sent a text to Sean: “We’re done.’’

Oh, the what ifs. What if only Kayla’s emotions had not changed? What if, because of Phoebe’s overture, Kayla and Phoebe became friends? At the least, they could have become allies, part of a Second Girlfriends club, warning other girls about the cad who used them.

But Christmas vacation came, and Kayla was overtaken by, in her own words, “hurt, anger, and jealousy.’’ She still wanted Sean, and she wanted Phoebe to pay.

She started talking about Phoebe behind her back. It fed a wider conspiracy against Phoebe, a conspiracy that hounded and threatened her. It was in Sean’s interest to pit girl against girl, to isolate Phoebe, the outsider who moved there from Ireland only a few months earlier, and he did so with cynical gusto, enlisting others to do the dirty work.

He enlisted a girl named Ashley Longe, who seemed to relish hurling insults and, on the day Phoebe killed herself, an energy drink can at Phoebe.

Moments before that can came hurling out the window of a passing car, as Phoebe walked home to the house where she would hang herself, Kayla and Sean laughed after Ashley shouted abuse at Phoebe in the school library.

They laughed at Phoebe’s misery, her vulnerability, her humiliation. Kayla and Sean were the popular kids. They had the power.

One of Phoebe’s last text messages, read out by her mother, Anne O’Brien, in court, was foreboding: “I think Sean condoning this is one of the final nails in my coffin.’’

A few days later, Phoebe was in that coffin, and Anne O’Brien stared down at her beautiful girl, her beautiful Phoebe. She had to hold her. One more time.

“I lifted her from the coffin and held her for the very last time,’’ Anne O’Brien told the court. “My little girl, once so full of life, was now so cold.’’

Cold would be a good word to describe Sean Mulveyhill, the kid who could have nipped all this in the bud, had he been half the leader in the hallways that he was on the football field.

He took his punishment — if you can call probation and 100 hours of community service punishment — with the same lack of empathy that got him into trouble in the first place. He said nothing about Phoebe. He said nothing to her mother.

Kayla got the same punishment, but wept. Maybe she was crying for herself. Maybe she was crying for Phoebe. Maybe she was crying for all of us.

“I’m sorry, Phoebe,’’ she said, still talking to the dead girl. “I allowed my emotions to spiral into acts of unkindness.’’

The what-ifs weren’t the only questions yesterday. O’Brien asked a question that hung in the air, like Phoebe’s spirit.

“How,’’ O’Brien asked, “do you measure a future lost?’’

Obama decided not to release Bin Laden photos

>> Wednesday, May 4, 2011

WASHINGTON (KABC) -- A U.S. official said Wednesday that President Barack Obama has decided against releasing photos of Osama Bin Laden's body.

Obama made the decision not to release the photos because of concern about a potential backlash that results in attacks against Americans, an official told ABC News.

According to ABC News, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton advised the president about concerns at the Pentagon and State Department that releasing a photograph could prompt a backlash against the U.S. for killing Bin Laden where one does not seem to currently exist.

The feeling at the White House is that there are few people, even in the Muslim world, who believe that bin Laden is still alive, and releasing the photo could do more harm than good.

"The only skeptics to bin Laden's death are extremists, and they wouldn't be convinced by a photograph. So the president has to weigh the potential negatives. And there's a tremendous risk of the photo becoming a rallying cry for attacks against U.S. soldiers, government personnel, and Americans in general," one U.S. official said.

Dancing with the Stars eliminated Kendra Wilkinson

Week after week she charmed fans with her girl-next-door sex appeal even as she struggled with the technical aspects of ballroom dance, and now it's over for Kendra Wilkinson.

She was eliminated even though she finished ahead of Alley and Romeo this week with 31 points to their 30 apiece.

"I've lasted seven weeks – seven weeks longer than I ever thought I would last," said Wilkinson, who thanked her pro partner, Louis van Amstel, and the two Hanks in her life: her husband and son.

"I'm not the best dancer but I am the best mom," she said. "I'm back to being a mom." [People/TV Watch]

Peru leader credits B. Pope John Paul II with bin Laden death

>> Monday, May 2, 2011

This is an interesting comment from the president of Peru and my initial thought was "why not?" This is not hard to believe since the past week was the celebration of the Feast of Divine Mercy, a feast which Pope John Paul II initiated per the revelations of Jesus to Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska, the Polish saint. It is a Mercy described as an infinite ocean.

“Today bring to Me all mankind, especially all sinners, and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. In this way you will console Me in the bitter grief into which the loss of souls plunges Me.”

Peru leader credits late pope for bin Laden death

LIMA, Peru—Peruvian President Alan Garcia says Pope John Paul II should get credit for the death of Osama bin Laden.
The late pope was beatified on Sunday and Garcia says: "His first miracle was to remove from the world the incarnation of evil, the demonic incarnation of crime and hatred, giving us the news that the person who blew up towers and buildings is no longer."

Garcia made the comment Monday as he inaugurated a hydroelectric power station.

Garcia also says bin Laden's death also vindicates President George W. Bush's decision "to punish Bin Laden and patiently continue this work that has born fruit."


Prince William and Kate Middleton, finally!

>> Friday, April 29, 2011

They sealed their marriage with a double kiss which could be a sort of good sign that they will live happily ever after. Well, that is if people would leave them alone so they can start their own life and family together.

I wish them happiness and peace!


Why Kate Middleton will not toss her wedding bouquet

>> Monday, April 25, 2011

From Vanity Fair:

Sadly there will be no pushing, shoving, and/or hair pulling at Miss Middleton’s wedding—at least not in an attempt to secure the coveted catch of the bridal bouquet. Kate will not be throwing her flowers, instead opting to politely place them on the grave of an unnamed soldier who fought in World War I. The Queen Mother began the tradition, leaving her arrangement on the grave of her brother Fergus, who died in combat in 1915.

From The Telegraph:

Prince William's fiancée is expected to leave her flowers on a black marble slab that covers the remains of the First World War soldier.

The Queen Mother began the long-standing tradition when her wedding posy was left at the grave in 1923 after her wedding to the Duke of York, later George VI.

She left the flowers in memory of her brother Fergus, killed in 1915 during the global conflict.

Tradition dictates that the day following royal weddings the floral tribute is sent to the Abbey after the official wedding pictures of the bride and groom have been taken.

The location of the Unknown Warrior's resting place at the west end of the Abbey in the centre of the nave will also have a bearing on the bride's procession to the altar.

Kate and her father Michael Middleton will have to make their way around the grave stone as it is the only one in the ancient building congregations are not allowed to walk on.

The Unknown Warrior's body was brought from France and buried on Armistice Day, November 11 1920.

It is thought the idea came from the Rev David Railton, who had served as a chaplain on the Western Front.

To the surprise of the organisers during the week after the burial an estimated 1.2 million people visited the Abbey, and the site is now one of the most visited war graves in the world.

Noodle Soup

Sick and too lazy to cook. That's what happened to me and my son yesterday so we just went out to "A & J" to try out their famous Beef Noodle Soup.

But if you are in the mood to make your own soup even though you're feeling sick, here is the recommended recipe for your Chicken soup.

The Ultimate Chicken Soup

Now that the cold and flu season is in full swing (witness the drippy red noses everywhere you look), it’s time to make a big batch of Dr. Ziment's Garlic Chicken Soup. We discovered this aromatic mixture while tracking down foods that double as medicine. Chicken soup was top of the list because pulmonary specialists have found that it actually helps clear the airways and reduce inflammation. But this spicy version is practically a wonder drug for head colds -- and it tastes amazing, especially if you love spicy food.

Devised by cold-and-cough expert Irwin Ziment, MD, who was chief of medicine at Olive View-UCLA Medical Center when he cooked it up, the soup gets much of its power from red pepper flakes. They contain capsaicin, known as a fast, effective decongestant. In addition, the hefty dose of garlic -- 30 cloves, although they cook down to produce a much milder, sweeter flavor than one would expect -- loads the soup with enough phytochemicals to give it infection-fighting powers.

Dr. Z recommends 1 cup three times a day, and inhaling the vapors is part of the prescription. Soon, you'll be breathing again.

Dr. Ziment’s Garlic Chicken Soup
The spicier the soup, the better it will be at clearing your head, so be generous with the red pepper flakes -- just don't make the soup so hot you can't tolerate it.
2 quarts chicken broth
2 cups sliced carrots
2 garlic heads, about 30 cloves, peeled
1/4 cup minced parsley
1/4 cup minced cilantro
2 teaspoons lemon pepper
2 teaspoons minced fresh mint leaves
2 teaspoons dried basil, crushed, or 2 tablespoons fresh basil, minced
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 bay leaf
Dried hot red pepper flakes, to taste

Combine all ingredients in a stockpot; bring to a boil and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Discard bay leaf. Puree in batches in a blender or food processor. Return to pot, stir well, warm if necessary, and serve, or freeze in small containers.
