I just saw Michael Douglas's appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman from sometime last week where he spoke of having stage four throat cancer and it was unbelievable how cool and calm he was talking about it.

It looks like he's got one hell of a battle in front of him for a couple of months and it seems as though there is a big chance he can beat it. Which is great news.

I have to say, when he first came out on the set and sat down. With his whiteish hair, all he needed was a dimple on his chin and he dead set was his father Kirk.

I read this news too and got so sad. Hope Michael can make it.

Quote
A FAN of Clint Eastwood was shot with a Taser stun gun and baton rounds by police after he was seen with a hand gun in a West Yorkshire working men's club.
Richard Gant had put the replica cap-firing gun back in his home before being challenged by the officers but was hit in the back with a Taser round after he refused to take his hand out of his pocket.
Quote
Gant told police: "I like Clint Eastwood and I get carried away when I watch his films. I'm sorry.

"Why don't you just put a rope around my neck? I want to die anyway.''

 " Freak accident prompts paralympian to walk again "

Quote
For the Dutch paralympic athlete Monique van der Vorst it is the greatest of Christmas gifts, because for nearly half her life she was not able to walk. That was until a freak accident.

Double silver medalist in Beijing two years ago, she remarkably began to get movement in her legs after being hit by a sprint cyclist in training. Like a jump-lead, the crash sent spasms through her legs and set her body in motion again.

" New Mexico governor hints at pardon for Billy the Kid "

 By Agence France-Presse; Thursday, December 16th, 2010

 http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2010/12/new-mexico-pardon-billy-kid/

 
Quote
LOS ANGELES — New Mexico's outgoing governor hinted Thursday that he could soon give a posthumous pardon to Billy the Kid, the infamous 19th-century Wild West outlaw.

Governor Bill Richardson, who stands down next month, said his office had received a formal petition, which he will consider and make a decision on before the end of the year.

"As someone who is fascinated with New Mexico's rich history, I've always been intrigued by the story of Billy the Kid and, in particular, the alleged promise of a pardon he was given by Territorial Governor Lew Wallace," he said.


 " No pardon for Billy the Kid "

 By Phil Gast, CNN;  December 31, 2010

 http://edition.cnn.com/2010/CRIME/12/31/new.mexico.billy/?hpt=C2

 
Quote
Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico will not pardon legendary Wild West outlaw Billy the Kid in the death of a law enforcement officer more than a century ago, he said Friday.

 
Quote
"Still, regardless of Billy's crimes, the motives of Richardson or the hollowness of posthumous justice, it all comes back to Wallace's promise. A deal is a deal, and 129 years doesn't change that. Billy is owed a pardon," Gardner wrote earlier this year in the Los Angeles Times.

 " Chuck Berry taken ill during gig "

 BBC News

 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-12105347

 
Quote
Rock 'n' roll legend Chuck Berry cut short a concert in Chicago after collapsing on stage.

 
Quote
He slumped over his keyboard and did not move for a couple of minutes before being helped off stage, Chicago Sun-Times reporter Dave Hoekstra wrote.

Berry, 84, later re-emerged but told fans he had no strength to continue performing, the Sun-Times reported.

His agent told AP he had been suffering from exhaustion and that he had now flown home to St Louis, Missouri.

With hits like Johnny B Goode and Roll Over Beethoven, the singer and guitarist is one of the pioneers of rock 'n' roll and influenced artists including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Beach Boys.

 
   

 I hope, he will be fast restored!  :)

That is amazing.   There really is no reason humans can't use other senses to help them see and hear.  It would be a matter of being taught how to do it.  This is just what this man is doing.

Lucky Punk's previous post was originally posted in The Dirty Harry Forums but we Moderators believed it didn't belong there as it doesn't mention Clint or the character of Dirty Harry.

"Massive explosion kills four in Wugu" (Taiwan)

http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/front/archives/2011/04/24/2003501543

Quote
A series of powerful explosions at a incense shop in New Taipei City (新北市) has left four people dead and 38 injured, New Taipei City Deputy Mayor Hou Yu-ih (侯友宜) said yesterday.

Quote
Goods were being unloaded from a truck in front of the shop when the blasts went off, according to an initial investigation by police.

Four houses and seven cars were completely destroyed and houses and cars within a radius of 100m suffered damage, police said.

Local media said the sound of the powerful explosion could be heard from as far as 10km away, while smoke soared nine stories high. Witnesses said they saw the truck explode as its driver was unloading fireworks from the vehicle, which then burst into flames.



This was the closest I could find to the articles that were in Chinese.  One additional piece of information that was in the Chinese reports was that the explosion involved about 10 tons of fireworks.  Shop keepers who stock fireworks are only allowed to store a maximum of 25 kg on site.  The police and fire department suddenly started checking the other shops in the city selling fireworks and discovered many that had far more than allowed.  It's too bad that it takes a tragedy for people to decide that a law that already exists was a good thing and had a purpose.

" Koala stolen from Australian park returned by thieves"

BBC News

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-13371228

 
Quote
A koala stolen from an Australian wildlife park two days ago has been reunited with its keepers.

Banjo was taken by thieves who used bolt cutters to break in to his enclosure at the Australian Reptile Park in Somersby, near Sydney.

On Wednesday staff received an anonymous telephone call telling them that Banjo had been returned.

He was found dumped in the car park in a plastic bin. "It's good to have him back. People can't care for this sort of thing. It's not a dog," said keeper Tim Faulkner.

The 13-year-old koala appeared frightened and was suffering from mild dehydration, but was otherwise in good condition.

Today is the Birthday of HRH The Duke if Edinburgh.   He is 90.

The Duke has supported the Queen for almost 60 years.   He has a great sense of humour and can also 'put his foot in it'.  It is obvious he and the Queen still have a closeness that comes with a long and happy marriage.  He has and still is patron of many charities.   In a TV interview yesterday with Fiona Bruce, he said he was going to take things a little easier.  That remains to be seen!   He is notoriously difficult to interview and you really 'felt' for Fiona, however the voiceover flashbacks of his life, spoken by Fiona made for a reasonable program. 

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/tvandradio/8566802/The-Duke-at-90-BBC-One-review.html

Happy Birthday Sir.

When I was a kid, one of my favorite shows on TV was Great Mysteries Of The World. It was on every Saturday at 5pm and was narrated by Leonard Nimoy. There was always the usual alien, UFO, Bigfoot type stories but there was one about D.B Cooper who hijacked a plane in the early 1970's and parachuted out with $200,000 never to be seen again, that intrigued me. They even made a film about it starring Robert Duvall.

Is the mystery about to be revealed?

" Rowan Atkinson left "shaken but not stirred" after his McLaren F1 supercar crash "

ROWAN Atkinson is “shaken but not stirred” after cheating death when he crashed his £2million supercar for a second time.
Advertisement >>

The Mr Bean star fractured his shoulder when his McLaren F1 careered off a wet road and into a tree and a road sign but he was released from hospital yesterday.

The actor, 56, managed to get out of the car, his pride and joy, as it burst into flames.

He had previously damaged the F1 – one of only 64 made – in a shunt with a Rover Metro in 1999 but he escaped injury.

Now, those were scary news.
I hope Mr. Atkinson is fine. At 56 years old he could choose a less radical sport to practise ???
