"Never worth watching. [It is] always a hit on Trump. She is sick [and] the most overrated person on TV.”
  • A black Nancy Drew? Rebooting old favourites with new faces

    Beloved detective Nancy Drew is returning to TV - but she'll look different from how fans remember. American network CBS is pledging that the new Nancy Drew won't be white. At the Television Critics Association press previews last week, the head of the CBS entertainment division, Glenn Geller, told reporters his network wanted to focus on diversity, including shows designed around characters who were black and Latino. "We're not casting colour-blind, we're casting colour-conscious," he said.

  • Politcians reject 'honour' crime reforms

    Efforts to toughen sentences meet opposition from Islamists. The country’s powerful Islamic parties and leaders are resisting reform of a law that sanctions lenient punishments for those found guilty of so-called honour killings. Article 111 of the Iraqi penal code - passed in 1969 - allows a lesser punishment for the killing of women if the male defendants are found to have had “honourable motives”. Under the law, a man can receive a maximum of three years in prison if he immediately kills or disables his wife or girlfriend after witnessing her engaging in a sexual act with another man....
  • History Channel - "How The Earth Was Made" dosumentary raises many questions in my mind

    So last night (Sunday, 12/30/07) I get ready in front of the T.V. at 8 p.m. with my son to watch the very much hyped documentary on the History Channel titled "How The Earth Was Made". Since my son is a first-grader and very much into science, his main interests include Earth and the entire Solar System. The two-hour documentary was fantastic, but it raised a key question in my mind and it made me, shall I say, more of a believer in God as Our Creator (not that I ever stopped 'believing', but I'm an open-minded person who believes...

    Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright criticized the U.S. invasion of Iraq, saying Monday it had encouraged Iran and North Korea to push ahead with their nuclear programs. Albright, who served under President Clinton, said "the message out of Iraq is the wrong one." "The message out of Iraq is that if you don't have nuclear weapons, you get invaded. If you do have nuclear weapons, you don't get invaded," she said after an investors' conference in Moscow. Albright visited North Korea in October 2000, becoming the highest-level American official ever to travel to the country. The two nations do...

    The Hill ^ | 5/24/06 | Patrick O'Connor
    House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) told President Bush yesterday that he is concerned the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) raid on Rep. William Jefferson’s (D-La.) congressional office over the weekend was a direct violation of the Constitution. Hastert raised concerns that the FBI’s unannounced seizure of congressional documents during a raid of Jefferson’s Rayburn office Saturday night violated the separation of powers between the two branches of government as they are defined by the Constitution. “The Speaker spoke candidly with the president about the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s raid over the weekend,” Hastert spokesman Ron Bonjean said yesterday in confirming...

    LIVONIA, Mich. (AP) -- A dog apparently fell from a freeway overpass and crashed through a car windshield, fatally injuring the driver, police said Thursday. Charles G. Jetchick, 81, died Wednesday of injuries suffered in the accident over the weekend in suburban Detroit. A passenger suffered minor injuries. Investigators do not believe the 60- to 70-pound Labrador retriever was thrown, but rather fell by while trying to avoid a car, State Police Sgt. Michael A. Shaw said. Police questioned the dog's owner. The dog died after a fall of about 16 feet. Despite his injuries, Jetchick was able to steer...

    Television ad | 10/28/04 | Geki
    In Ohio last night (columbus) my wife and I saw a new Bush ad (it was paid for another organization of which I can't remember the name of). This is by far the most effective and personal ad I've seen this election year. The ad depicts the Ashley Faulkner, daughter of a 9/11 victim hug photo here at a rally in ohio a while back that made some headlines.. the ad showed personal interviews with the father and the daughter. It literally brings tears to your eyes. The ad was well put together and very genuine, it is a real...

    In an interview with Matt Bai published in today’s New York Times Magazine, Kerry made a very, very, very significant statement about how he would fight the war on terror. Kerry compared the war on terrorism with eradicating prostitution or illegal gambling. ''We have to get back to the place we were, where terrorists are not the focus of our lives, but they're a nuisance,'' Kerry said. ''As a former law-enforcement person, I know we're never going to end prostitution. We're never going to end illegal gambling. But we're going to reduce it, organized crime, to a level where it...

    In Nascar, the term ‘sandbag’ is used to describe a maneuver in which a driver who has a really fast car doesn’t utilize the full potential of the car’s strength during that race. The idea is to intentionally make the other drivers; who aren’t expecting this to happen, think they may have the fastest cars so they make fewer adjustments to their make them even faster...and they show everyone else what they have during the race. Once the race is close to the finish, the driver who has been ‘sandbagging’ knows what adjustments the other race teams have made,...

Under his tenure, SAG grew significantly in size and influence as the Guild tackled issues ranging from runaway production, to fair compensation, to...

    FBI supervisor criticized in 9-11 attacks earns award Honor given to chief of law unit that blocked Moussaoui warrant 01/10/2003 Associated Press WASHINGTON - An FBI supervisor whose headquarters unit denied a pre-Sept. 11 search warrant against Zacarias Moussaoui has won a presidential citation and large cash bonus, incentives the agency's congressional critics say reward incompetence. The FBI's deputy general counsel, Marion "Spike" Bowman, was among nine current and former FBI officials who last month received a Presidential Rank Award for career senior executives, which carries with it a large cash bonus of 20 to 30 percent of an...

    Leading Hollywood liberal Norman Lear, who helped fund TV ads hitting the air this week charging that gas-guzzling SUV owners are actively funding terrorists, isn't much of an energy conservationist himself, judging by the 21-car garage he added to his Los Angeles estate five years ago. The SUV foe's garage is "built to hold 21 cars and stands 45 feet tall," according to a Los Angeles Times report on the environmentally offensive structure. "Lear's neighbors in Sullivan Canyon contend that the structure, complete with a tennis court atop, was built in violation of city height restrictions and with misrepresentations about...

    (New York, 1-Aug SFTRNN) United Nations Sec. General Koffi Annan announced this evening that Iraqi foreign minister Tariq Azziz has accepted revised proposals for the return of U.N. weapon inspection teams to verify Iraqi claims that the country no longer has weapons of mass destruction and has no ongoing ability to research or manufacture them. Responding to Iraqi concerns over the composition of the team and possible inspection activity that might unfairly undermine the countries sovereignity and security rights, Annan had modified original proposals a number of times until final agreement was reached today. Among the key requirements Iraq demanded...
