Isaac Haxton

Isaac Haxton has appeared in a number of major final tables over his short career. He finished second in the 2007 PCA for $861k, and sixth in the 2008 EPT London High Rollers Event for $188k. Haxton also has a couple of WSOP final tables under his belt. Greg Raymer, as you well know, won the 2004 World Series of Poker. Raymer is an extremely capable poker player, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him win this event.
Vitaly Lunkin won a bracelet last year ($1,500 NLHE event for $629k), and will certainly be no pushover at the final table. Dani Stern and Lex Veldhuis don't have a great deal of "live" tournament experience, but both are extremely talented players who made their names playing online poker. Alec Torelli has a couple of major final table experiences to draw from, including a second place finish in the $10k Heads-Up event last year at the World Series of Poker.
Noah Schwartz appeared at the final table of the 2008 Borgata Winter Open, where he eventually finished in 4th place for $331k. Schwartz has nearly $800k in total lifetime tournament cashes. The remaining nine players will all be battling it out for the $1.89 million dollar first place prize, as well as the coveted WSOP bracelet.

Pushing Daisies

Pushing Daisies, the screwball comedy that comes in candy-fruit colors, returned for the first of its final three episodes. All was right with its world: there were two murders to be solved, but also a new complexity between the show's essential romantic triangle of pie-maker Ned, his love Charlotte "Chuck" Charles, and Olive, the Pie Hole restaurant waitress. Plus extensive study of the double-negative as a clue to the true meaning of love.
Personally, any time a major subplot involves Kristin Chenoweth's Olive, the happier I am with Daisies, and last night's was Chenowonderful. We saw a glimpse of Olive's childhood (unloved, neglected) and met two men who were once accused of kidnapping her. They were played, to my delight, by George Segal and Richard Benjamin (two stalwarts of 1970s cinema and television -- look them up on YouTube in Johnny Carson-era Tonight Show videos, and in films such as Blume in Love and Goodbye, Columbus). Both men played these two shady characters (not really kidnappers but petty thieves) as slapstick bumblers.
Meanwhile, back at the Pie Hole, Olive was being courted by David Arquette's Randy Mann. Olive, of course, spent much of her time mooning over eternally-unattainable Ned, parsing his every remark for signs of affection. (That's where her study of the double-negative in grammar came in.) When Ned kissed Olive, we got a brief, lovely musical number, with Olive/Chenoweth trilling the Lionel Richie hit "Hello," a song I thought I never wanted to hear again until that moment.

Whistler SL500

Whistler SL500: I met DE-1732 back in Toronto. I’d been wanting to start a band for a while, but I’m kind of a no-frills guy. Not much of a rock star, you know? So I was at our church beaver roast one Friday when I saw this really cool-looking radar detector with this wicked smile. When he told me he was VG-2 undetectable, just like me, I knew this was the guy.
Whistler DE-1732: That’s actually what our first song together was about. “Immunity”, it was called. “Uniformed inspector / Seeking your detector / His idea of fun is / Seeing you punished / But you’re immuuuuuune!” Whistler SL500: We oughtta do that one again. Whistler DE-1732: Yeah, it was pretty rough. For one thing, we’re illegal in some states, so that was kind of a hassle. And we missed a bunch of gigs ‘cause we couldn’t use our GPS.
Whistler SL500: The tour bus only had two DC jacks. We call it a bus. It’s really more of a minivan. Anyway, me and DE-1732 had to use those jacks. So no GPS, no gigs, no payment. Nobody wants to pay you in this business. Whistler SL500: Now we got this deal going with this discount deal-a-day web site. I think it could totally turn things around.

Pentecost Sunday

Pentecost Sunday with Christmas and Easter, ranks among the great feasts of Christianity. It commemorates not only the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and Disciples, but also the fruits and effects of that event: the completion of the work of redemption, the fullness of grace for the Church and its children, and the gift of faith for all nations.
After Jesus had ascended to heaven from Mt. Olivet, the apostles and disciples returned to the Holy City. They remained together in the Upper Room or Cenacle, the place where Jesus had appeared to them and which may well be called the first Christian church. About a hundred and twenty persons were assembled there. They chose Matthias as an apostle in place of the unhappy Judas; they prayed and waited for the Paraclete.
Ten days had passed, it was Sunday, the seventh Sunday after the resurrection. At about nine o'clock in the morning, as they were together praying fervently, the Holy Spirit descended upon them. Note how all the great theophanies in Christ's life occurred during the course of prayer. After His baptism, for instance, when Jesus was praying the heavens opened and the Holy Spirit descended in the form of a dove; likewise, it was during prayer at night that the transfiguration took place on Tabor.

Susan Boyle finale performance

Susan Boyle’s finale performance here in another post; the video is below the post. Have a watch if you have not seen it yet and if you’re from the U.S., let us know your reaction to the Britain’s Got Talent finale and Susan Boyle losing. Why does the U.S. love Susan Boyle so much? Is it because Susan Boyle received more attention from the U.S. media or is it a different attitude towards Susan?
The U.S reaction to the British Press has not been good, they feel that Susan Boyle was given a really hard time and that may have gone against her in Britain’s Got Talent 2009. It would be interesting to see what the outcome of Britain’s Got Talent 2009 finale would have been if the United States were allowed to vote. We are sure Susan Boyle would have taken the crown.
If you’re a fan of the Susan Boyle phenomenon, you’ll want to check out Susan’s final performance, which aired on Britain’s Got Talent minutes ago. And if you’re not a fan, perhaps rejoice in the fact that this social media obsession - which credits its spread to YouTube (YouTube reviews), Twitter (Twitter reviews) and Facebook (Facebook reviews) - is perhaps nearing an end.

Fa Cup Final 2009 Kick Off

English premier league 2008-09 season has already finished with Manchester United winning the third consecutive domestic league title. Now, there is only one match left to end the 2008-09 season of English football and that is the FA Cup Final 2009 between Everton and Chelsea. Chelsea finished third and Everton finished fifth in the league, even though the difference between the two teams was of 20 points. On the other hand, Chelsea did not lose to Everton since 2000 and Everton manager David Moyes failed to win over Chelsea, having tried 20 times so far. Anyway, none of these statistics seems to have any impact on Saturday’s (30 May) FA Cup Final 2009 at the Wembley stadium, London.
In their bid to farewell their inspirational manager Guus Hiddink with a trophy, Chelsea is now gearing up to lift the FA Cup 2009 title in what would also help the Blues avoid second successive season without a silverware. Since joining Stamford Bridge in January 2009 on a short term deal, Hiddink, who is also in charge of Russian national football team, has helped Chelsea to reach the Champions league semi final, finish 3rd in the league and reach the FA Cup final.
If Guus Hiddink is the man who can inspire his players to give their best on the field, then Everton manager David Moyes is the man who knows it very well how to win games despite having several restrictions. With limited resources, Moyes could successfully lead Everton to finish in the top five in premier league, and thus, ensuring qualification to European Cup and reach the FA Cup 2009 final.

Jay Leno Last Show

Jay Leno wrapped up his last show on the May 29 Tonight Show last night - cracking jokes after a long standing ovation at the show’s open, interviewing Conan O’Brien, and listening as James Taylor performed. It was Jay Leno’s finale Tonight Show closing (see the video above) that was the sweetest moment of the night - thanking the crew, writers, Kevin Eubanks and wife Mavis… before talking about the legacy of his 17-year run on the Tonight Show.
Leno introduced the 68 kids who have been born to Tonight Show staffers during the 17 year gig, saying, “That’s what I’d like my legacy to be. When these kids grow up and they go, ‘Hey, mom and dad, where did you guys meet?’, they’re going to say they met on the stage of the Tonight Show.”
Jay Leno’s last show was wrapped up with support of incoming Tonight Show host Conan O’Brien: “Thank you everybody, thank you for watching. Please give Conan as much support as you’ve given me throughout the years. Good night, we’ll see you in September.”

Faithful Fish

Faithful Fish is a designer Christian lifestyle clothing company that inspires Christians everywhere to "proudly wear their faith". The company was started by a 20 year old named Chelsea Eubank. She had been a good Christian and once wanted to express her faith at school. However she couldn’t find anything perfect and ended up creating "Faithful Fish".
From Faithful Fish, emerged the idea of Wear It Wednesday. The “Wear It Wednesday” campaign encourages students to wear their favorite Christian shirt (Christian band, FCA, youth group, etc.) to school on the first Wednesday of each month.
The initial goal of the “Wear It Wednesday” campaign is to have 500,000 students log on to www.wearitwednesday.com and register their intention to “wear their faith” on the first Wednesday of each month. Students can then take pictures of themselves and their friends wearing their faith-branded shirts and post them to the Wear It Wednesday website to encourage and inspire others.

Andrew Carnegie

Andrew Carnegie grants Riverside $20,000 for a library building. Construction begins on the downtown library at the northeast corner of Seventh and Orange Streets. The Mission Revival building is the work of the architectural firm of Burham and Blieser of Los Angeles; the general contractor is J. W. Carroll of Riverside.
Memorial Day weekend marked the debut of Mr. Carnegie’s Grand Tour of Washington, an annual automobile-based passport tour of Carnegie libraries throughout Washington State. Many of these buildings continue to house libraries and related cultural institutions like museums; others, like Carnegie’s Restaurant in Seattle, have been completely re-purposed. All stand as reminders of an important era for American public libraries. Visitors can pick up “passports” at participating locations and have them stamped during their visit.
Conceived by the Clark County Historical Museum (Vancouver, WA) as a way to celebrate the 100-year-birthday of its building (a 1909 Carnegie library), the Grand Tour developed into an initiative of the newly-established Carnegie Library Consortium of Washington, whose mission is to “identify surviving Carnegie Libraries in Washington State and promote public awareness and preservation around the world.” The Consortium has put together a slideshow about Andrew Carnegie which will be on display at participating locations, as well as a children’s storybook/coloring book featuring “Andy the Library Explorer” as he delves into the history of Carnegie libraries.

Raibin Osman

Raibin Osman appeared before a Washington County judge Tuesday on a charge of misusing emergency services. He said he called emergency dispatchers after the drive-through employee wouldn’t come back to the window to give him a juice box. “We ordered some food and we went home and our order wasn’t in there,” Osman said in the 911 call. “And my little brother is crying for his orange juice.”
Osman’s father, Raof, said the emergency call was an innocent mistake and that it escalated when the McDonald’s employee laughed at the poor English of his son-in-law. “We came back with our receipt and said, ‘Hey, can we have our order? We paid for it,’” Osman told the emergency dispatcher. “And she was like, ‘Oh, no, I can’t do anything about it.’ And she was laughing at my brother-in-law because he ordered the food and couldn’t speak English right.”
Meanwhile, the McDonald’s employee also called 911 after feeling threatened by the men. “I showed them that everything was correct and they got mad and told me to give them more food,” the employee said in the 911 call. “And I told them, I can’t give any free food away.” When deputies arrived, Raibin Osman admitted it was not an emergency call but said he didn’t know what number to use, according to the sheriff’s office.

Jared Ashley

John Rich and Jared Ashley can't settle their differences -- so now the cops are involved. Rich turned himself in to the Metro Davidson County Criminal Justice Center in Nashville, Tenn. this afternoon to face misdemeanor charges of assault and harassment stemming from an alleged altercation between the two. Rich and Ashley have both filed civil lawsuits against each other -- Ashley sued Rich for the alleged assault, and Rich sued back for defamation.
Rich, in a statement released by his lawyers, claims that since he can't reach a settlement with Ashley, he'd rather defend himself "through the legal process to the fullest extent of the law." He says, "I trust that the truth will come out through the process of our American justice system and that I will be completely exonerated at the end of the day."
Country star John Rich of Big & Rich was charged on May 28 with assault and harassment, E! Online reports. Rich allegedly smacked former Nashville Star contestant Jared Ashley in the face; he has denied the charges. "I trust that the truth will come out through the process of our American justice system and that I will be completely exonerated at the end of the day," the singer said in a statement.

Spelling Bee 2009 Winner

A spelling bee 2009 Winner is a competition where contestants (children), are asked to spell English words. The concept is thought to have originated in the United States, and is usually perceived to be a solely English language practice. Today, National Spelling Bee competitions for English are held in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Indonesia and others. Kavya won at the end of a championship round in which runner-up Tim Ruiter was eliminated on "maecenas" and third-place finisher Aishwarya Pastapur was eliminated on "menhir".

Melissa Weber

The incidents allegedly started on or around April 13 and continued for about a month. The boys mom was encouraged by friends and members of the school’s PTA to investigate after they told her they suspected inappropriate behavior between Weber and her son.
The boy’s mother found out Melissa Weber’s phone number and checked her son’s cellphone, finding that there were literally hundreds pf phone calls and text messages between the two. Some of the text messages from Weber warned the teen boy to not tell anyone about their relationship and near the end when Weber feared getting caught, one message simply said “Erase your phone.”
Weber, of West Babylon, New York is awaiting an arraignment hearing for the charges of statutory rape, sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child.

Social studies teacher Melissa Weber was awaiting arraignment late Thursday on rape, sexual abuse and child endangerment charges.

Kavya Shivashankar

Cool and collected, Kavya Shivashankar wrote out every word on her palm and always ended with a smile. The 13-year-old Kansas girl saved the biggest smile for last, when she rattled off the letters to "Laodicean" to become the nation's spelling champion. The budding neurosurgeon from Olathe, Kan., outlasted 11 finalists Thursday night to win the Scripps National Spelling Bee, taking home more than $40,000 in cash and prizes and, of course, the huge champion's trophy.

Visteon bankruptcy

Visteon's bankruptcy makes it the latest casualty in the U.S. auto industry, which has been hit by the Chrysler LLC bankruptcy and awaits an imminent filing by General Motors Corp. Though expected for months, a Visteon filing could complicate matters for Ford, the one Detroit auto maker to so far avoid government aid. Visteon doesn't have any financing lined up from banks, and will have to lean heavily on Ford and other auto companies for cash to get it through a restructuring.
"Visteon is taking this step to maximize the long-term value of the company," Visteon Chief Executive Donald J. Stebbins said in a written statement. "During the reorganization period, we will seek to address our capital structure and legacy costs that are not sustainable given the current economic environment." "Ford's top priority is to ensure we have sufficient parts and material to protect our production," Ford's Global Purchasing Group Vice President Tony Brown said in a written statement.
Visteon expects to fund its operations with its U.S. cash balance, cash flows from operations and a debtor-in-possession facility. Ford has executed a commitment letter to support debtor-in-possession financing for Visteon's restructuring efforts and to ensure long-term continuity of supply. Other global customers have also expressed their support, the company said. As of Dec. 31, Visteon employed 11,000 salaried workers and 22,500 hourly workers worldwide. It also had $893 million in unfunded pension obligations.

Powerball Winner

Someone is South Dakota has the one winning ticket in Wednesday night's $232 million Powerball jackpot. The prize, originally estimated at $222 million, came in higher than expected due to heavy sales around the country. Wisconsin had eight major Powerball winners, including a $200,000 winning ticket sold at Waterford Self Serve in Waterford in Racine County.
Appleton (2) at Richmond Citgo and at Woodman's Food Market. Black River Falls at Federated Co-op Jefferson at the Jefferson County Market on Highway 26. Kenosha at Anjum Enterprises, 8211 Sheridan Road. Neenah at Pump N Munch West Baraboo at M&R Travelmart. One ticket will become a $30,000 winner thanks to the Power Play multiplier, but state lottery officials will not which ticket that is, until processing takes place overnight.
None of the tickets sold for the latest Hoosier Lotto game matches all six numbers drawn, so the jackpot rises to an estimated $3 million for Saturday's drawing. The winning Hoosier Lotto numbers drawn Wednesday are 4, 15, 22, 30, 32 and 45. Meanwhile, one ticket sold in South Dakota for the Powerball game's $232.1 million jackpot Wednesday night matched all six numbers drawn. Those numbers are 5, 6, 12, 16, 21 and the Powerball, 7. The Power Play was 3.

Sara Jane Moore

Sara Jane Moore and Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme attempted to assassinate U.S. President Gerald Ford in 1975.

Sara Jane is again in headlines as she appeared in NBC’s Today and said that she "made a serious error". She said "I think that I was misled, that I was mistaken. I think I made a serious error," she told Lauer. "I had to learn later that everyone else didn’t feel that way." Moore pleaded guilty to attempted assassination and was sentenced to life in prison before being released in 2007.
Sara Jane Moore attempted to assassinate U.S. President Gerald Ford on September 22, 1975 outside the St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco, just seventeen days after Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme had also tried to kill the president. Moore was a bookkeeper for P.I.N. and an FBI informant when she attempted to assassinate Ford.

Cop Without A Badge

Cop Without A Badge is a tittle of a book. Cop Without A Badge: The Extraordinary Undercover Life of Kevin Maher (Hardcover) written by Charles Kipps. The Real Housewives of New Jersey is TV program on Bravo channel Television Network. The Real Housewives of New Jersey first season started on May 12, 2009.
Where’s that ex husband? Is there a mug shot? Danielle Staub is the Real Housewives of New Jersey diva of drama. Danielle Staub - from alleged mug shots, to phone sex, and sex in a restaurant offers - has covered a lot in just two tv weeks. Nevertheless, the first two episodes of Real Housewives of New Jersey proves it’s all Danielle Staub’s show so far.
In episode one Danielle Staub reportedly covers just a bit in the storyline. What you may ask? Phone sex. Oh yes. This is not your mother’s Bravo channel anymore. And the chatter-luv didn’t just start yesterday, reveals Danielle Staub. Nope, it’s gone on for 2 years with a guy she doesn’t know.

Xbox Live

Xbox Live is Zune Video NOT Zune Marketplace. Music is not part of the Xbox Live offering. Zune, Microsoft's 'end-to-end music and entertainment service' is coming to Xbox Live. Later today the mega-corp will officially announce its plans, which - although intriguing - are substantially less radical than the Zune mobile phone and/or Zune portable games player imagined by internet rumour-mongers over the weekend.
Up until now, the portable media player and its online iTunes Store equivalent, Zune Marketplace, have only been available in the US. From early Autumn, however, a revised service, Zune Video, will be available on Xbox Live in the US, UK, France, Italy, Germany, Ireland and Spain (with more countries coming aboard later).

Danielle Staub

Danielle Staub is the Real Housewives of New Jersey diva of drama. Danielle - from alleged mug shots, to phone sex, and sex in a restaurant offers - has covered a lot in just two tv weeks.Nevertheless, the first two episodes of Real Housewives of New Jersey proves it’s all Danielle Staub’s show so far.
In episode one Danielle reportedly covers just a bit in the storyline. What you may ask? Phone sex. Oh yes. This is not your mother’s Bravo channel anymore. And the chatter-luv didn’t just start yesterday, reveals Staub. Nope, it’s gone on for 2 years with a guy she doesn’t know. Oh, but then there is episode 2. There is an offer to perform an oral service on another guy in a restaurant. Well hello!
I love the comments from fans in public and on the blogs about how wonderful my children are. I’m so glad the world gets to see how great my kids are! They are my world! She also says her kids are her best friends. I think in viewing this week’s episode I should keep my list of friends limited to my children. I don’t mean to sound ungrateful, but it seems they are the only ones I can truly trust. They are my only family.

Amber Alert

Police have issued an Amber Alert for a 9-year-old girl who they believe is may be in the trunk of a sport utility vehicle with her mother after being carjacked in suburban Philadelphia. The carjacking happened Tuesday afternoon following an accident in Upper Southampton Township, Bucks County. Authorities are looking for Sweeten's gold or silver GMC Yukon Denali, which has Pennsylvania license plate GYK-8998. They're also looking for a black 1990s Cadillac.

A 38-year-old Feasterville woman, Bonnie Sweeten, called 911 later Tuesday afternoon and said she was the victim of that carjacking. Sweeten told a dispatcher that she and her 9-year-old daughter, Julia Rakoczy, were in the trunk of a Cadillac. That call was traced to a cell phone tower in downtown Philadelphia. Police are still searching for a missing five-year-old girl who disappeared from her family's apartment complex Sunday evening.
One man, George Kennedy, and another unidentified person are in police custody in connection with the little girl's disappearance. Kennedy is a friend of the girl's mother, and is said to have a criminal record. Police sent out helicopters with high tech gear, and tracking dogs to search the area Tuesday and the Amber Alert remains in effect.

North Korea

North Korea reportedly tested two more short-range missiles Tuesday, a day after detonating a nuclear bomb underground, pushing the regime further into a confrontation with world powers despite the threat of U.N. action. Two missiles _ one ground-to-air, the other ground-to-ship _ with a range of about 80 miles (130 kilometers) were test-fired from an east coast launchpad, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported, citing an unidentified government official.
Pyongyang also warned ships to stay away from waters off its western coast this week, a sign it may be gearing up for more missile tests, South Korea's coast guard said. North Korea is "trying to test whether they can intimidate the international community" with its nuclear and missile activity, said Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Wall Street was lower in early trading as North Korea's actions kept investors on edge.
"But we are united, North Korea is isolated and pressure on North Korea will increase," Rice said. On Monday, President Barack Obama assailed Pyongyang, accusing it of engaging in "reckless" actions that have endangered the region, and the North accused Washington of hostility. France called for new sanctions, while the U.S. and Japan pushed for strong action against North Korea for testing a bomb that Russian officials said was comparable in power to those dropped on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II.

Susan Rice

Susan Rice called North Korea’s actions “unacceptable” and said the United Nations will not allow North Korea to continue to build a nuclear weapons program. Rice said China has a “strong interest” in stopping North Korea and is “willing to work” with the United States. Rice said North Korea would become “further and further isolated” from the international community and would continue to face “significant additional pressure.”
“They will pay a price,” Rice added. “We’re prepared to step up our efforts.” Rice said it appears North Korea has material for six to eight nuclear devices. “However many they have, that’s too many,” she said. "If you want to continue to test and provoke the international community, they're going to find they'll pay a price because the international community is clear: it's not acceptable," Rice said on CNN television, in reaction to Pyongyang test-firing two short-range missiles Tuesday.
"We agreed yesterday we're going to pursue in the security council a new resolution - a strong resolution with teeth," she said, adding that sanctions "could take very different forms" and might include "economic levers." After Monday's emergency meeting at UN headquarters in New York, member states decided to "immediately" begin working on a new Security Council resolution to address the weapons tests, council president Vitaly Churkin of Russia said, declaring "strong opposition and condemnation of the nuclear test" by the body.

Monica Bellucci s

Thieves used the closing ceremony of the Cannes Film Festival to break into the Paris apartment of Matrix Reloaded beauty Monica Bellucci, it emerged today. As the Italian sex symbol and her actor husband Vincent Cassel appeared on TV from the south of France, the burglars got away with more than £80,000 in cash.
Jewellery and computer and video equipment worth at least double that amount were also taken, as well as Miss Bellucci’s passport – something she needed this week to travel to Hollywood. ‘It was clearly a meticulously planned burglary,’ said one of the officers investigating the burglary in Boulevard de Ménilmontant, in the French capital’s 20th arrondissement. ‘The thieves are believed to have struck just as the stars were appearing on television in Cannes on Sunday evening.
‘They entered the fourth floor apartment via a balcony, smashing a window in the process. Then they pretty much cleared the flat out of anything which was valuable and could be removed easily. ‘There have been plenty of cases of the homes of professional footballers being targeted while they are playing in high-profile matches, but this appears to be the first time that the same kind of thing has happened to actors.’ The 45-year-old former model has appeared in numerous films, including Irreversible and The Passion Of The Christ, in which she played Mary Magdalene.

Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson was critically injured on Monday in what police said was a tragic accident at home. According to Fox News, Exodus Tyson was found by her 7-year-old brother hanging from the cord of a treadmill. At press time was reported to be in "extremely" critical condition and on life support at St. Joseph's Hospital. Police are calling the mishap a "tragic accident." A police spokesperson told Fox News that there was "nothing in the investigation that revealed anything suspicious."
The toddler was reportedly playing near the exercise equipment in the family's Phoenix home while her mother was elsewhere in the house cleaning on Monday morning. When her mother sent the boy to look for Exodus, he found her tangled in the cord. He alerted the mother, who immediately called 911 and began performing CPR. "Somehow the little girl got something caught across her throat, she became unresponsive, the boy went and got the mother, and the mother came out and found the child," Phoenix Police Sgt. Andy Hill told the Phoenix Fox affiliate.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the family of Exodus Tyson, Mike Tyson’s daughter, as she is currently on life support after an accident involving the family’s treadmill. More details/video regarding the story are here. Exodus Tyson, the 4-year-old daughter of boxer Mike Tyson, is currently on life support after she was found hanging from a treadmill cord earlier today.

Mike Tyson Daughter

Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson's 4-year-old daughter is in critical condition after she was found with a cord around her neck following an accident, according to media reports on Monday. Exodus Tyson was playing near some exercise equipment when she accidentally got tangled in a cord or rope hanging from a treadmill, the Arizona Republic reported on its website.

The Phoenix Police Department did not immediately return phone calls. ABC News reported that the child was rushed to St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in central Phoenix, where she was listed in critical condition on life support. Police said that based on the initial investigation, the incident appeared to be "a tragic accident," ABC reported. Tyson is the subject of a new documentary by director James Toback. He was not in Phoenix at the time of the accident, but was shown later on television news arriving at the hospital.
It saddens me to report that Mike Tyson’s 4-year-old daughter is on life support after she was found by her 7-year-old brother hanging from a treadmill cable. The mother sent the boy to find Exodus Tyson who was playing in a separate room. The boy found his sister in distress and got his mother, police said. “Somehow she was playing on this treadmill, and there’s a cord that hangs under the console — it’s kind of a loop,” police Sgt.

Jay Bennett

Jay Bennett died in his sleep Saturday night, of causes yet to be determined. He was 45. Bennett suffered chronic hip pain for many years, having injured himself from a dive off a stage in the '90s when he was performing with his band Titanic Love Affair. I'm going to spend the rest of my night listening to his work. His love of music came through in every sound he explored: pump organ, prepared piano, Wurlitzer, Omnichord, Mellotron, piano loops, guitars and Leslie banjos -- and that's just on Yankee Hotel Foxtrot!
Multi-instrumentalist and former member of Wilco Jay Bennett died this weekend, according to a post on the website for Undertow Music Collective. A cause of death was unknown. “We are profoundly saddened to report that our friend died in his sleep last night. Jay was a beautiful human being who will be missed,” read the update on Undertow. The company released his 2002 solo album, “Palace at 4 am (Part I).”
Representatives from the label and management firm had not responded to requests for comment as of Sunday evening, but the Chicago Sun-Times reached Bennett’s friend and collaborator Edward Burch. "Early this morning, Jay died in his sleep and an autopsy is being performed," Burch told Jim DeRogatis. In the late ‘80s, Bennett founded the rock band Titanic Love Affair in Urbana, Ill., which lasted into the mid-‘90s. He was best known for his seven years in adventurous rock act Wilco.

Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

President Barack Obama joins thousands of Americans in commemorating Memorial Day on Monday by laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington. The nation pays tribute to its fallen heroes as it seeks to end the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The President had honored veterans and servicemen and women in his weekly address on Saturday.
Obama, who spent Memorial Day weekend at Camp David with his family, will lead the traditional ceremony at Arlington at about 10:30 am. He will return to Camp David and spends a quiet day with First Lady Michelle Obama and their two daughters before returning to the White House later in the evening. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has issued a statement urging constituents to "take a moment to remember the extraordinary sacrifices of so many Americans who fought for their flag and their country."
"Our fighting men and women - and the military families who love them - embody what is best in America. And we have a responsibility to serve all of them as well as they serve all of us," he said. "Yet, all too often in recent years and decades, we, as a nation, have failed to live up to that responsibility. We have failed to give them the support they need or pay them the respect they deserve. That is a betrayal of the sacred trust that America has with all who wear - and all who have worn - the proud uniform of our country."

Memorial Day Flag Etiquette

Memorial Day Flag Etiquette and July the Fourth—provide a natural opportunity to teach children flag etiquette. Even young children can be taught that our flag is special, and we treat it with respect. The National Flag Foundation lists some simple rules for honoring our flag. You can wear a T-shirt showing a flag; do not wear clothes made of flags.
Do not wear pants or use towels bearing flags—the flag should not be sat upon. • Raise a flag in a lively manner; lower it slowly. • Don’t create a flag motif on a lawn or football field, where feet can step on it. Don’t hang a flag at night unless you can illuminate it. Don’t display a flag during snow, rain, or other storms unless it is weatherproof. Hung vertically, the star-studded section should be in observers’ top left corner.
Good manners do more than make children pleasant to have around; they equip your kids to face varied social situations successfully. But instilling good manners has always been a challenge. Here’s what Socrates said regarding the young people of Athens in 500 B.C. Youth today loves luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority, no respect for older people, and talk nonsense when they should work. Young people do not stand up any longer when adults enter the room.

Diane Borchardt

Diane Borchardt was a former teacher's aide/study hall monitor at Jefferson High School in Wisconsin. She was convicted of hiring three of her students to murder her estranged husband, Ruben Borchardt, on Easter morning in 1994 [1]. The Borchardts were married in October 1979. Ruben had just lost his first wife (the mother of his two children) in a car accident earlier in the year. For the next 14 years, both Ruben and his children were living with Diane, and the Borchardts had a daughter together. He did not hit or abuse Diane.
Late in 1993, Ruben fell in love with a woman who had hired him to do some cabinet work for her and he decided that he wanted a divorce from Diane. During the divorce proceedings, Ruben won title to their home, and Diane was given one month to vacate the premises. Diane then began soliciting some of her students for the job of killing Ruben, offering them cars and $20,000 from Ruben's life insurance policy. One of them, Douglas Vest, eventually agreed to do it and enlisted a couple of friends to help him. On the eve of the murder, Diane deliberately picked a fight with Ruben and told police that she was leaving the house, thus giving herself an alibi.
The next morning, around 3:30 AM, as Ruben and his son prepared to go to the Easter Sunrise Service at their church, Diane's students broke into the house and shot Ruben twice with a sawed-off shotgun, just as he was going up the stairs to get his son out of bed. Ruben was taken to a hospital, where he died several hours later. Diane got away with the crime for almost six months, until one of the gunmen told 'the wrong person' about his involvement in the crime, and implicated Diane as the organizer of the plot.

Indy 500

Helio Castroneves understands better than most how hard it is to win the Indy 500. The charismatic Brazilian won here as a rookie in 2001 and then backed it up with a victory the next year, becoming only the fifth driver in the history of the race to win two in a row. Since then, six years have passed with no fence-climbing celebrations at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the man dubbed "Spiderman.''
"The first year was pretty tough,'' Castroneves said. "The second year was even tougher. The third year, I had like a bullet. This car was incredible, supersonic. I finished second. So, I learned that you can't let opportunities go by. You've got to go for it. That's what we're going to do this Sunday.''A win this year would be particularly significant for Castroneves. On Friday, federal prosecutors dropped the remaining U.S. tax evasion conspiracy charge against him and his sister, clearing Castroneves of all the charges that once threatened to derail his career.
In just his third race since returning to the IndyCar Series, Castroneves will start from the pole on Sunday, with Penske Racing teammate Ryan Briscoe next to him in the middle of the front row. That 1-2 punch gives team owner Roger Penske a good shot at his 15th Indy win. "But, to win here, everything has to work perfectly, everything,'' said Penske, whose last winner was Sam Hornish Jr. in 2006.

Rashad Evans

Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida stopped Rashad Evans at 3:57 of the second round to win the light heavyweight title at UFC 98 on Saturday night. Machida landed a barrage of punches that sent Evans reeling up against the cage and finished him off with a left hand that folded Evans backwards onto the canvas. "I've tried all my life to become a champion and I am very, very happy," a jubilant Machida said. "Now I'm going to keep this belt for a long time."
The light heavyweight title has now changed hands four times in the last five title bouts. In the co-main event earlier, Matt Hughes won a unanimous decision against Matt Serra in a matchup of former welterweight champions. Serra took the advantage early on, flooring Hughes with strikes in the first round. Hughes was able to fight back utilizing his superior wrestling ability and controlled the final two rounds with all three judges scoring the fight 29-28.
The two embraced after the fight and seemed to put the bad blood behind them. The fighters developed a heated rivalry while coaching opposing teams on The Ultimate Fighter reality show and were scheduled to meet at UFC 79 in December 2007 when Serra pulled out of the bout due to injury. When asked what his plans for the future were, Hughes said," I'm still motivated to compete so we'll see what happens. I'd like to fight in my home area." Brock Larson, Tim Hague, Kyle Bradley, Krzysztof Soszynski, Yoshiyuki Yoshida, and George Roop won preliminary fights.

Boston Run to Remember

Boston's Run to Remember What a gorgeous day! I just walked over to the Seaport Hotel area to pick up our bibs for the half marathon tomorrow. We've run this race every year since it's been around- 2005. The first year Nick and I had only been dating about a month, and I ran the half marathon having never run more than 7 miles at once before. I wanted to keep up with him (and I finished) but felt like crapola afterwards. That race made me realize that I hadn't been pushing myself enough though. I love running this race every year with Nick; it's our little tradition.
The Boston Police Department and Boston Police Runner’s Club invite you to the fifth running of Boston’s Run To Remember on May 23-24, 2009. Race date is Sunday May 24 and number pick up and expo is Saturday May 23. Honor Massachusetts Law Enforcement Officers killed in the line of duty by celebrating their lives and giving back to the community.

French Open

French Open second round on Sunday with a gruelling 7-6 (7/3), 6-3 win over Italy's Sara Errani as Roland Garros temperatures hit a sweltering 30 degrees. The 21-year-old, eighth-seeded Serbian will play either Thai veteran Tamarine Tanasugarn or Camille Pin of France for a place in the third round. Ivanovic eased through the tiebreak and then dominated the second set, stretching out a 5-1 lead on the back of two breaks.
The cheerful Ivanovic, who skipped the Madrid Open because of a knee injury, had the problem area taped when she walked onto a sun-drenched Philippe Chatrier Court, but it didn't hinder her in the early exchanges as she edged to a 3-1 advantage. The 44th-ranked Italian then stormed back to lead 5-4, but once she had squandered an opportunity to serve for the first set in the 10th game, her fight steadily melted away. She suffered a slight blip when Errani clawed one break back in the eighth game, but the champion eventually clinched victory with a swooping forehand in the ninth game after over two hours on court.
"I knew I had to work hard for every point, but I kept my composure even when I was making mistakes," said Ivanovic, who racked up 50 winners in the match. "My knee wasn't a problem. I feel fine. I had some good practice sessions last week after taking the Madrid tournament off. It only takes a few days to get back into shape." China's Li Na, the 25th seed, earlier had the honour of becoming the first player to reach the second round thanks to a 6-4, 6-2 win over Poland's Marta Domachowska.

Lyoto Machida

Lyoto Machida's first UFC light-heavyweight title defense will be against former champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. No target date but UFC president Dana White has confirmed that Jackson will receive the first shot at Machida's belt. If the rumors are true that Jackson and Machida will serve as coaches on "The Ultimate Fighter 10," the two will meet in December. Jackson originally earned the title shot with his UFC 92 win over Wanderlei Silva last December. However, injuries prevented Jackson from facing Rashad Evans at UFC 98, leaving Machida to step in to fulfill his title aspirations.
Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida, a karate specialist, used his kicks to gain the advantage and then landed a series a punches that knocked Rashad Evans down three times in the second round to win the UFC light heavyweight championship at UFC 98 in Las Vegas. The final blow was a devastating left hook that flattened Evans. His 205-pound body collapsed faster than the last few grains of a sand in a timer.
I tried all my life to be a champion, and I'm very, very happy," Machida said. "And now, I'm going to keep this belt for a long time. And to everyone, if you have a dream in your life, go ahead, it's possible. Machida's unorthodox style kept Evans (18-1-1) at bay the entire fight. Machida (15-0) landed big left kicks in the first and second rounds, helping to keep Evans at bay. Machida connected on a left leg kick to the body, followed by a left hand that dropped Evans to the ground toward the end of the first round. Machida pounced on Evans and landed a few shots before the champion got back to his feet.

Machida vs Evans video

Machida vs Evans video or Evans vs Machida fight video. I found two videos from youtube. They are embed in my previous post. Lyoto Machida defeated Rashad Evans as early as round 2. There are two videos already Rounds 1 and 2-- Machida vs Evans Video. Remember, these are from youtube. You should be glad someone uploaded these videos. But the videos will surely be taken down due to copyright violation. Please refer to this post for the video.- Machida vs Evans Video. You can also watch them directly on youtube.

The event was the UFC 98 fight between Lyoto Machida and Rashad Evans that was held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Vegas on Saturday May 23, 2009. Machida rushed Evans to the cage and unloaded with a left hook. Then it was a right followed by a left hook on the chin that put Evans to sleep. The Dragon beat Evans in a KO at 3:57 in round two to prove that he is the best 205 lb. fighter on the planet and to claim the UFC light-heavyweight champion title.

Brian Williams

Brian Williams and Dan Harris have unusual new side gigs as music bloggers. Williams' "BriTunes" — a name he quickly found was already in use by a 27-year-old blogger — launched last week with the NBC News chief anchor's talk with Deer Tick. That's the indie rock buzz band from Providence, R.I., not the insect whose bite can carry Lyme Disease.
ABC News' Harris has for the past few months operated "Amplified," a Web site that features his interviews with such artists as Superdrag, Neko Case, Amadou and Mariam, the Virgins and Bon Iver. They appear to be passion plays, rather than calculated attempts at reaching younger audiences. For anyone whose vision of a network anchor runs to Tom Brokaw or Walter Cronkite stateliness, the sight of Williams on camera comparing the styles of White Lies and Interpol is jarring. His current playlist includes Great Lakes Swimmers, Dead Weather, the Knux and Jason Isbell.
"Since my earliest memory, I've never been able to drive without music, write without music or be alone for too long without a song playing. This, I guess, is an extension of that," said Williams, whose plans this past weekend included taking in Green Day and Leonard Cohen concerts. Harris was hooked when the goth kid in his high school class handed him a tape of the Minutemen and Sonic Youth. Harris, 37, anchors ABC's "World News" on Sundays and is a general assignment reporter who spent six months in Iraq.

Pearl Aday

Pearl Aday teams up with Meat Loaf, her father, as contestants in the second season of Don't Forget the Lyrics which is hosted by Wayne Brady. The father-daughter tandem are in the contest to help raise money for the Painted Turtle Camp in California, a camp for seriously ill children. This season kicked off with Meatloaf and Pearl Aday as contestants. The duo was playing to raise money for the Painted Turtle Camp, a camp that helps seriously ill children.
Aday is Meatloaf's 35-year-old daughter and she is currently the lead singer of the band Mother Pearl. Aday started out singing back up for her father when she was in her early twenties and eventually became a member of his band, Neverland Express, before leading her own band. Aday is scheduled to release a solo album in the near future and she has huge shoes to fill. Her father's debut album Bat Out of Hell sold 43 million copies and supposedly stayed on the charts for years.
Fox's Don't Forget the Lyrics hosted by Wayne Brady returned to the airwaves tonight at 8 PM. Lyrics is one of those shows I only catch if I'm flipping through the channels and everything else I want to watch is on commercial. It's entertaining, but I'm just not driven to tune in every week. Fox has been trying to bolster the rates of the show by having celebrity guest appearances. Last season, they welcomed Boyz II Men, Kimberly Locke, and Kenny Loggins.

Turrets Syndrome

Tourette syndrome (TS) is an inherited disorder of the nervous system, characterized by a variable expression of unwanted movements and noises (tics). Tourette’s is no longer considered a rare condition, but it may not always be correctly identified because most cases are classified as mild. Between 1 and 10 children per 1,000 have Tourette’s;as many as 10 per 1,000 people may have tic disorders,with the more common tics of eye blinking, coughing, throat clearing, sniffing, and facial movements. People with Tourette’s have normal life expectancy and intelligence.
The exact cause of Tourette’s is unknown, but it is well established that both genetic and environmental factors are involved. Some believe that there may even be latent advantages associated with the genetic vulnerability. A controlled study on a small group of individuals with TS found that cognitive control may be enhanced in young people with Tourette’s because the need to suppress tics results in more efficient control of inhibitions.
Receiving a teaching award is what teachers hope for. One Georgia teacher received such an award despite odds being against him. His name is Brad Cohen, and after hearing his background you might have your doubts if he could really teach, let alone do it in a way that is so admirable.Cohen has Turrets Syndrome. Which meant that his days in elementary and middle school were unpleasant. Teachers and students would pick on Cohen. The reason being is that Turrets Syndrome causes him to make noises and sounds he cannot control.

Carol Cole

Carol Cole was never sick in her life, but last week suddenly learned she had an advance cancerous spot on her lung. Timolin tells press: “Our sister Cookie hadn’t been to a doctor in 30 years, and last week she went in and they found a cancerous spot on her lung. They had wanted to start chemo right away, but Cookie said no.”
Suddenly as Natalie and Timolin were comforting Carol, Natalie got a call that her liver transplant she had been waiting for was ready. Natalie was unwilling to leave Carol. Timolin told Natalie that Cookie would want her to do the procedure. Natalie did, it was a success, and when she emerged, Cookie had passed. The singer was by her older sister's side when she learned that a donor organ had become available.
Carol Cole, the sister of Natalie Cole and daughter of Nat King Cole has died of cancer Monday. She was 64. Carol Cole was also known as Cookie. She appeared on "The Nat King Cole Show" on television in the 1950s. She also appeared in movies in the 1960s and 70s. Carol Cole, who went by the nickname Cookie, appeared on her father's "The Nat King Cole Show" on television in the 1950s and went on to appear on TV and in movies in the 1960s and '70s. Her credits include "Sanford and Son" and the 1974 movie "The Taking of Pelham One Two Three."
