    Actress Luise Rainer, who became the first winner of consecutive Oscars in the 1930s, has died at the age of 104. The German-born star was named best actress in 1936 and 1937 - a feat achieved by only five actors in Academy Awards history to date. Her achievement made her a force in the golden age of Hollywood cinema, but was also a curse, making her last major film in 1943. She settled in London and made occasional appearances on film and TV. Rainer appeared in US small screen series The Loveboat in 1984, while her last substantial film role...

Federal agents with the Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested Abu Abrahim Sheik Mohamed at Sea-Tac Airport as he got off a domestic flight, federal criminal justice sources said. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Lorie Haley said only that Mohamed, 37, was "in custody on immigration violations" and is being held at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma. She declined to specify what immigration regulations Mohamed is accused of having violated. While he is being...

    The Grimaldis had been intermittent rulers of their patch of the Cote d’Azur for three centures before deciding, in 1612, to make themselves “princes”. But, unlike other European princes, Honore II, Seigneur de Monaco, opted to be styled not “His Royal Highness” but “His Serene Highness”. For the last two decades of Prince Rainier’s long reign over Monte Carlo, few highnesses had less to be serene about. His American wife, who’d brought celluloid glamour to a realm where the real thing had been in short supply, died in a car crash in 1982. His older “sensible” daughter married unsuitable Euro-playboys....
