Eddie Snyder, American composer (“Strangers in the Night”, “Spanish Eyes”)died he was , 92

Edward Abraham Snyder was an American composer and songwriter. Synder is credited with co-writing the English language lyrics and music for Frank Sinatra’s 1966 hit, “Strangers in the Night“died he was , 92.

(February 22, 1919 – March 10, 2011)

Snyder was born in New York City on February 22, 1919.[1] He studied piano at the Juilliard School before taking a job as a songwriter at the Brill Building.[1]
The music for “Strangers in the Night” was originally written by Croatian composer Ivo Robic but when it failed to gain recognition in the song festival for which it had been composed, Robic sold the rights to German bandleader and composer Bert Kaempfert, who used it in the spoof spy film A Man Could Get Killed. Snyder subsequently collaborated with British lyricist Charles Singleton, although Snyder always insisted that he also contributed to the final music form, and the song is now credited to all four.[1]

The first vocal version was cut by Jack Jones in April 1966, but the best-known is that recorded by Frank Sinatra three days later. At the session an angry Sintra turned on guitarist Glen Campbell, who had been brought in at the last moment. Campbell did not know the song and busked his way through the first take while listening to the tune. Sinatra was used to recording in a single take, and when told he would have to sing it again, he glared at Campbell and shouted: “Is that guy with us or is he sleeping?”. On take two Sinatra himself added the famous “doo-bie-doo-bie-doo” improvisation at the end. In the original 1966 recording, this fades prematurely, but in a recently remastered version, it continues for an additional nine seconds. Despite its popularity, Sinatra is known to have detested the song and often expressed his distaste for it when performing it in concert.[1]
“Strangers In The Night” has been performed an estimate of four million times since Sinatra recorded the originally, won Snyder a Golden Globe for Best Original Song in a Film in 1966.[1] Snyder also composed “Spanish Eyes” for Al Martino in 1965, which later became a hit in the United Kingdom in 1973.[1]
Eddie Snyder died on March 10, 2011, at the age of 92. He was survived by his wife, Jessie.[1]

Who is Colette Sheridan?

Who is Colette Sheridan? The entertainment and acting world know her as Nicollette Sheridan. Sheridan is a Golden Globe-nominated British-born American actress. She has appeared in soap operas, movies and television series, and is perhaps best known for her roles as Paige Matheson on Knots Landing and as Edie Britt on Desperate Housewives.

Sheridan was born November 21, 1963 Colette Sheridan in Rustington, West Sussex, England, the daughter of British actress Sally Sheridan (née Adams).[1] She is of Indian Punjabi descent through her maternal side.[2][3] Contrary to rumour, Sheridan is not related to actress Dinah Sheridan. Sheridan’s biological father has never been identified. However, Sheridan has said that she considers her mother’s late ex-boyfriend, actor Telly Savalas, to be her father (and not stepfather). Sheridan’s half-brother, Nick Savalas, is his son. Sheridan attended school at Millfield in Somerset and emigrated to the United States in 1973.[1]

Sheridan made her debut in Paper Dolls, but her breakthrough came in 1986, when she joined the cast of the CBS night-time soap Knots Landing as “Paige Matheson”. She started out in a recurring role, but proved to be so popular that she was a regular during the 1988-89 season. For her performance in the role, she won the 1990 Soap Opera Digest Award for “Outstanding Lead Actress: Prime Time” and the 1991 Soap Opera Digest Award for “Outstanding Heroine: Prime Time”. The same year, she was named one of People Magazine‘s “50 Most Beautiful People”. After the series ended in 1993, she appeared in several made-for-TV movies and the films Spy Hard and Beverly Hills Ninja and auditioned for the role of Grace Adler on Will & Grace (on which she would later guest-star). Despite her carefully cultivated sex symbol image, Sheridan has only done one nude scene during her career, in the low budget 1999 film Raw Nerve, opposite Mario Van Peebles.
In 2004, Sheridan’s role as sexy divorcee Edie Britt in ABC‘s Desperate Housewives brought her renewed media attention. She was nominated for a 2005 Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress and was named #48 on Maxim‘s 2006 List.[4] Less positively, she was named 2004’s “worst dressed” by Mr. Blackwell. Blackwell’s citation probably resulted from the colourful and boldly-cut gown Sheridan wore as a presenter at the American Music Awards on November 14, 2004 but he had earlier (TV Guide, July 22, 1989) praised her fashion sense: “daring … with her panache, she brings it off without a hitch. For the adventurer in all of us, she’s the one to watch”. On November 15, 2004, Sheridan was cited by the FCC for her appearance in a sketch that opened the evening’s Monday Night Football broadcast. The Desperate Housewives-inspired sketch, showing Sheridan dropping a towel to attract the attention of football player Terrell Owens who then said “ah hell”, was widely condemned as being sexually suggestive.[5][6] ABC was forced to apologize for airing it, but the citation against Sheridan was dropped on March 14, 2005. On November 22, 2004, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) aired a controversial parody showing WWE Diva Trish Stratus dropping her towel to attract WWE Superstar Shelton Benjamin, but being caught in the act by the company’s chairman, Vince McMahon.[7]
Todd Schnitt of radio station WFLZ-FM in Tampa, Florida, placed an early-morning telephone call to Sheridan on November 18, 2004, waking her to discuss the Monday Night Football controversy (which had come to be called “Towelgate”). On January 30, 2007, the FCC levied a $10,000 fine because the station violated regulations in failing to inform Sheridan that the interview was being broadcast.

Toward the close of the fourth season of Desperate Housewives, conflicting reports circulated regarding Sheridan’s future in her role. While Hollywood.com reported in April that series creator Marc Cherry had said Sheridan would depart at the end of the season,[8] another source stated that Sheridan was confident she would return for the series’ fifth season.[9] By May 4, Entertainment Weekly reported that Sheridan would likely make several appearances in the upcoming season, but not necessarily as a regular cast member.[10]

Actress Dana Delany, who plays Katherine Mayfair, confirmed that Nicollette Sheridan would be back to reprise her role for Season 5 of Desperate Housewives,[11][12] and the Hollywood Reporter reported Nicollette’s character might be seducing another boyfriend, played by actor Neal McDonough.[13]

Personal life

When season five aired, Sheridan did indeed reprise her regular role as Edie, now married to to McDonough’s character, who is the centerpiece of the new season.
In February 2009 Sheridan announced she will be leaving Desperate Housewives at the end of the season. Her final episode will be in April 2009.[14]

From 1979 to 1985, Sheridan dated the then teen-idol Leif Garrett. They began dating when she was still about 15 and lived with him in his mother’s home while still an underage (minor). As an adult, Sheridan was involved in an unsuccessful attempt to end Garrett’s drug abuse.
Sheridan was married to actor Harry Hamlin from September 7, 1991 through 1993. Because the marriage lasted exactly two years (the amount of time required for an American citizen’s spouse to receive permanent residency), it was rumored to be a “green card marriage”. However, this is unlikely the case as both Savalas, her half brother, and TV network CBS could have sponsored her for any needed visas without her needing to resort to a false marriage.

From January to October 2005, Sheridan was engaged to Swedish personal trainer, Nicklas Söderblom. After their break-up, Sheridan returned to ex-boyfriend Michael Bolton, to whom she became engaged in March 2006. Sheridan was reportedly pregnant with his child but both of them have denied these rumours.[15]
In 2006 Nicollette Sheridan and Michael Bolton sang a duet titled The Second Time Around for the album Bolton Swings Sinatra.[16]
In March 2008 Nicollette Sheridan posed naked for a London Fog charity ad which also featured Nicollette’s fiancé, Michael Bolton.[17]
On March 25, 2008 Nicollette Sheridan settled a lawsuit brought by a former manager who alleged that he was fired by the actress to avoid paying a commission.[18]
It was confirmed on August 26, 2008 that Michael and Nicollette had broken their engagement.[19]

Who is Lara Logan?

Who is Lara Logan? The entertainment and news world knows her as Lara Logan a South African television and radio journalist and war correspondent. She is currently the chief foreign affairs correspondent for CBS News, a correspondent for 60 Minutes and appears in segments for CBS Evening News.

Early life

Logan was born 29 March 1971 in Durban, South Africa. She attended high school at Durban Girls’ College, and later attended the University of Natal in Durban, graduating in 1992.[1][2]

Career

It was during her studies that Logan began working as a news reporter for the Sunday Tribune in Durban from 1988–89, and found work with the Daily News, another Durban publication, between 1990 and 1992.[1] In 1992 she began working for Reuters Television in Africa, primarily as a senior producer.[1] After four years she branched out into freelance journalism, finding work and assignments as a reporter and editor/producer with ITN and Fox/SKY, CBS News, ABC News (London), NBC, and the European Broadcast Union. She also found work with CNN, reporting on incidents such as the 1998 United States embassy bombings in Nairobi and Tanzania, the conflict in Northern Ireland, and the Kosovo war.[1]
Logan was hired by GMTV breakfast television in the UK as a correspondent in 2000, and also worked with CBS News Radio as a freelance correspondent. Days after the attacks on 9/11, Logan begged a clerk at the Russian Embassy in London to give her an expedited visa to travel to Afghanistan.[3] In November 2001, while in Afghanistan working for GMTV, Logan infiltrated the American-and British-backed Northern Alliance and interviewed their commander, General Babajan, at the Bagram Air Base.[3]
Her skill as a reporter persuaded CBS News to offer her an official role within their organisation in 2002. Logan spent much of the next four years reporting from the field, including war zones in Afghanistan and Iraq, often as an embedded journalist with the American Armed Forces. Many of her reports were for 60 Minutes II, and she was also a regular contributor to shows such as CBS Evening News, The Early Show and Face The Nation. She was promoted to the position of the Chief Foreign Correspondent for CBS News in February 2006.[1]

Haifa Street fighting

In late January 2007, Logan filed a report about fighting along Haifa Street in Baghdad.[4] When CBS News refused to run the report on the nightly news because the footage was “a bit strong,”[5] Logan tried to win public support to reverse this decision. Logan said, “I would be very grateful if any of you have a chance to watch this story and pass the link on to as many people you know as possible. It should be seen. And people should know about this.”[5][6] Logan went on to use some of the Haifa Street material during a 60 Minutes report about life in Baghdad under the surge.

Michael Hastings controversy

In June 2010, a Rolling Stone magazine article by Michael Hastings quoted four-star Army General Stanley A. McChrystal and his staff contemptuously criticizing civilian government officials. As a consequence of the article, President Obama fired McCrystal as his top commander in Afghanistan on 23 June 2010.[7][8][9]Logan said Hastings’s reporting was “sensational”, and, by relaying “insults and banter”, he had violated an “unspoken agreement” and “element of trust” between reporters and military personnel.[10] ABC News reported that an unnamed source, identified as a “military official”, had noted the lack of written ground rules between Hastings’ staff and Hastings. The official nonetheless was confident that Hastings had published comments from what McChrystal staffers had assumed discussions that were off-the-record. Rolling Stone editor Eric Bates countered that prior to publishing the Hastings article, the magazine had abided by all of the “express requests for off-the-record and background or not-for-attribution” made by the military.[11]
Matt Taibbi wrote a Rolling Stone blog entry titled “Lara Logan You Suck”, in which he said “If there’s a lower form of life on the planet earth than a “reputable” journalist protecting his territory, I haven’t seen it”, and found Logan ignorant of journalistic responsibilities.[12] Glenn Greenwald of Salon.com said Logan had shown herself to be “like the most devoted member of McChyrstal’s P.R. staff or even his family.”[13] CNN’s former chief military correspondent, Jamie McIntyre said Logan’s mention of Hastings’ lack of military service was “clueless and unhelpful”, adding that Logan’s “ill-conceived attack” had “unfortunately reinforced the worst stereotype of reporters who ‘embed’ with senior military officers but are actually ‘in bed’ with them”. McIntyre said Logan’s statements on Hastings provided the “smoking gun” to those “looking for evidence combat reporters are too dazzled by the shiny stars on the commander’s epaulets.”[14]

Protests in Egypt

On 3 February 2011, Time magazine reported that while covering the Egyptian Revolution, Logan and her crew were arrested by the Egyptian army in Cairo. Logan said the government wanted to prevent further film coverage.[15][16] She said that prior to the arrest: “We were heavily heavily intimidated and bullied” and “accused of being agents and spies for Israel.”[17] Logan later said of the arrest: “We were not attacked by crazy people in Tahrir Square. We were detained by the Egyptian army. Arrested, detained, and interrogated. Blindfolded, handcuffed, taken at gunpoint, our driver beaten. It’s the regime that arrested us. They arrested [our producer] just outside of his hotel, and they took him off the road at gunpoint, threw him against the wall, handcuffed him, blindfolded him. Took him into custody like that.”[15][18]
On 15 February 2011, CBS News released a statement revealing that some four days earlier, Logan had been beaten and sexually assaulted while covering the celebrations in Tahrir Square following the resignation of then President Hosni Mubarak.[19] CBS News indicated that she was overwhelmed along with her camera crew and security staff before being saved by a group of women and Egyptian soldiers. Logan returned to her hotel after the assault and was flown out of the country within hours on a chartered network jet.[20][21][22]

Personal life

Joseph Burkett

Logan’s husband, Joseph Burkett, is a U.S. Federal Government defense contractor from Texas, whom she met in Afghanistan.[23][24] They live in Washington, D.C., with their two-year-old son and Burkett’s daughter.[25] Her first husband, Jason Siemon, was a professional basketball player in the United Kingdom.[3]

David Salzer Broder was an American journalist, writing for The Washington Post for over forty years.[1] He also was an author, television news show pundit, and university lecturer died from complications from diabetes he was , 81..
For more than half a century, Broder reported on every presidential campaign, beginning with the 1956 Eisenhower–Stevenson race.[1] Known as the “dean” of the Washington press corps, Broder made over 400 appearances on NBC‘s Meet the Press.
Upon Broder’s death in March 2011, President Barack Obama called him the “most respected and incisive political commentator of his generation.”[2][3]

 

(September 11, 1929 – March 9, 2011)

Early life and education

David Salzer Broder was born in Chicago Heights, Illinois,[4] the son of Albert “Doc” Broder, a dentist,[1] and Nina Salzer Broder.[5]
He earned a bachelors degree in liberal arts from the University of Chicago in 1947 and continued his studies there, receiving a master’s degree in political science in 1951. While at Chicago, he met fellow student Ann Creighton Collar, and they were married in Crawfordsville, Indiana in 1951. They had four sons and seven grandchildren.[1]

Journalism career

Early years

He began working as a journalist while pursuing his masters degree, serving as editor of The Chicago Maroon[6] and later at the Hyde Park Herald.[7] He was drafted into the US Army in 1951, where he wrote for the newspaper U.S. Forces Austria (USFA) Sentinel, until he was discharged from the Army in 1953.
In 1953, Broder reported for the Pantagraph newspaper in Bloomington, IL, covering Livingston and Woodford counties in the central part of the state. From there he moved to the Congressional Quarterly in Washington DC, in 1955, where he apprenticed under senior reporter Helen Monberg and got his first taste of covering Congressional politics. During his four-and-a-half years at CQ, Broder also worked at The New York Times as a freelance writer.
In 1960, Broder joined the Washington Star as a junior political writer covering the presidential election that year between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon. During his five years at the Star, he was promoted to national political news reporter and was a weekly contributor to the paper’s op-ed page.
Broder left the Star for The New York Times in 1965, hired by well-known Times political reporter and columnist Tom Wicker to serve in its Washington bureau.

Washington Post columnist

After 18 months at The Times, Broder moved to The Washington Post, where he would remain for over forty years, beginning as a reporter and weekly op-ed contributor. Later, he was given a second weekly column. Broder’s columns were distributed initially through The Washington Post Wire Service and then later syndicated through The Washington Post Writers Group. His columns were carried by more than 300 newspapers for many years.
The longtime columnist was informally known as the “Dean” of the Washington press corps and the “unofficial chairman of the board” by national political writers.[8][9][10]
In May 2008, Broder accepted a buyout offer from The Washington Post Co., effective January 1, 2009,[11] but continued to write his twice-weekly Post column as a contract employee. In a letter to the publications that run his column, Broder said: “This change will allow me to focus entirely on the column, while freeing up the Post to use its budget for other news-section salaries and expenses.”[11]
In June 2008, Ken Silverstein, a columnist at Harper’s magazine alleged that Broder had accepted free accommodations and thousands of dollars in speaking fees from various business and healthcare groups, in one instance penning an opinion column supporting positions favored by one of the groups.[12] Deborah Howell, The Washington Post‘s ombudsman at the time, wrote that Broder’s acceptance of speaking fees appeared to be a violation of the paper’s policy on outside speeches, as was the fact that some of the groups that paid Broder also lobby Congress.[13] Howell pointed out that Broder said “he had cleared his speeches with Milton Coleman, deputy managing editor, or Tom Wilkinson, an assistant managing editor, but neither remembered him mentioning them.”

Pulitzer Prize

Broder won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary in 1973 and was the recipient of numerous awards and academic honors before and after.

Meet the Press and other broadcast media

For many years Broder appeared on Washington Week, Meet the Press, and other network television news programs. It was announced at the close of the August 10, 2008 broadcast of Meet the Press that Broder was celebrating his 400th appearance on that program, on which he first appeared July 7, 1963. He appeared far more often than any other person, other than the program’s panelists. The next closest person to Broder was Bob Novak, who had appeared on Meet the Press fewer than 250 times.
Broder was a weekly guest on XM/Sirius Satellite Radio’s The Bob Edwards Show starting in October 2004. On the premiere broadcast, Broder was joined by CBS News anchor Walter Cronkite as the program’s first guests. Broder also contributed to The Bob Edwards Show as a political commentator.

Lecturer and author

In 2001, Broder became a lecturer at the University of Maryland’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism while continuing to write full-time at The Washington Post. He generally lectured one class a year on politics and the press, the class meeting at the newspaper. Merrill College Dean Thomas Kunkel described Broder as the nation’s “most respected political journalist” when he announced Broder’s hire. Broder has also lectured at Duke University (1987–1988).[15]
He is author or co-author of eight books:

Death

Broder died of complications from diabetes on March 9, 2011 at the age of 81.[1][16]

Reception by peers

Broder was called “relentlessly centrist” by The New Yorker‘s political commentator Hendrik Hertzberg.[17] Frank Rich of The New York Times often described Broder as the nation’s “bloviator-in-chief”.[18]
He earned a mention in two books chronicling the media’s coverage of the 1972 presidential campaign between Richard Nixon and George McGovern, including Timothy Crouse’s The Boys on the Bus[19] and Gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail ’72.[20]
Broder’s work was also cited in two autobiographies by key figures in the history of The Washington Post: Personal History[21] by Post publisher Katherine Graham in 1997 and A Good Life: Newspapering and Other Adventures[22] by Post executive editor Ben Bradlee in 1995. More recently, Broder was included in former Post columnist Dave Kindred’s 2010 book on the paper’s struggles in the changing media landscape: Morning Miracle: A Great Newspaper Fights for Its Life.[23] Broder is also mentioned in Bill Clinton’s biography First In His Class[24] by David Maraniss.
Broder earned a place in a work of fiction, meriting a mention by a White House senior staffer to fictional U.S. President Jed Bartlet (portrayed by actor Martin Sheen) on the NBC-TV series The West Wing.[25]

BARACK OBAMA PUBLISHES HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATE TO PROVE HE’S AMERICAN

BARACK OBAMA PUBLISHES HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATE TO PROVE HE’S AMERICAN.

 I am happy yet so disappointed that Phillip Berg, Donald Trump and talk show host like Michael Savage were on board with the notion that the President was not an american born citizen.

Forget the fact that he was a lawyer that went to College graduated and was a senator and now a president. President Obama hand was forced by the billionaire and potential presidential candidate Donald Trump.

He revived gossip about Obama’s citizenship – which, had it been true, would have made him ineligible for the White House.
Obama has already had to produce a “certificate of live birth” – the standard official document – when he was first challenged during the election campaign in 2008.
But hardcore Republicans always claimed it was fake and the flames were fanned by Trump.
So Obama, 49, finally instructed his lawyers to obtain the original, long-form birth certificate from a health department vault in Hawaii.
Yesterday aides posted it on the internet and sent copies to the media. A clearly irritated Obama added: “We do not have time for this kind of silliness, we’ve got better stuff to do.”
He said he was puzzled by how the issue had been kept going for more than two years.
Doubters had formed a groundswell of opinion known as the “Birther” movement. Some claimed the original certificate could show that Obama was not born in the US and that he was a Muslim.
The birth certificate revealed yesterday for the first time stated clearly that Barack Hussein Obama was born on August 4 1961 at a maternity hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii, at 7.24pm, to his white mother from Kansas and his namesake black father from Kenya.
There was no mention of religion, but Obama has repeatedly insisted he is Christian. Asked for his response yesterday property tycoon Mr Trump said: “I would like to see it, I hope it’s true, I hope it checks out beautifully.” 
So now that these fools that live on idiot street have egg on their face, I wonder what their claim will be now???

Who is Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson?

Who is Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson? The entertainment world knows her as Emma Watson, Watson is a French-born British actress[1] who rose to prominence playing Hermione Granger, one of three starring roles in the Harry Potter film series. Watson was cast as Hermione at the age of nine, having acted only in school plays.[2] From 2001 to 2007, she starred in five Harry Potter film instalments alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint. She will return for the final two instalments: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, due to be released in 2009, and the two parts of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.[3] Watson’s work in the Harry Potter series has earned her several awards and more than £10 million.[4]

In 2007, Watson announced her involvement in two non-Harry Potter productions: the made-for-television adaptation of the novel Ballet Shoes and an animated film, The Tale of Despereaux. Ballet Shoes was broadcast on December 26, 2007 to an audience of 5.2 million and The Tale of Despereaux, based on the book by Kate DiCamillo, was released in 2008.[5][6]Emma Watson was born 15 April 1990 in Paris, France, daughter of Jacqueline Luesby and Chris Watson, English lawyers.[7] Watson has one French grandmother,[8] and lived in Paris until the age of five, before she moved with her mother and younger brother, Alex, to Oxfordshire, England, following her parents’ divorce.[7]
From the age of six, Watson expressed a desire to become an actress.[9] By 10, she had starred in school plays, including Arthur: The Young Years and The Happy Prince.[7] She had never acted professionally before the Harry Potter series. “I had no idea of the scale of the film series”, she said in a 2007 interview with Parade magazine; “if I had I would have been completely overwhelmed”.[10]

In 1999, casting began for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (known as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in the United States), the film adaptation of British author J. K. Rowling‘s bestselling novel.[9] Of importance to the casting directors were the lead role of Harry Potter and the two supporting roles of Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, Harry’s two friends. Casting agents found Watson through her Oxford theatre teacher,[9] and producers were impressed by her confidence. After eight auditions, producer David Heyman told Watson and fellow applicants Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint that they had been cast, respectively, as Hermione Granger, Harry Potter and Ron Weasley. Rowling supported Watson from her first screen test.[9]
Watson’s debut as Hermione came in 2001 with Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. The film broke records for opening-day sales and opening weekend takings and was the highest-grossing film of 2001.[11][12] Critics praised the performances of the three leads, often singling out Watson for particular acclaim. The Daily Telegraph called her performance “admirable”,[13] and IGN said she “stole the show”.[14] Watson was nominated for five awards for her performance in Philosopher’s Stone, winning the Young Artist Award for Leading Young Actress.[15]
A year later, Watson again starred as Hermione in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the second installment of the series. Though the film received mixed reviews because of its pace and direction, critics were positive about the performances. The Los Angeles Times said Watson and her peers had matured between films,[16] while The Times criticised director Chris Columbus for “under-employing” Watson’s hugely popular character.[17] Watson received an Otto Award from the German magazine Die Welt for her performance.[18] In 2004, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was released. Watson was appreciative of the more assertive role Hermione played, calling her character “charismatic” and “a fantastic role to play”.[19] Although critics turned away from Radcliffe’s acting talent, labelling him wooden, Watson continued to be praised; The New York Times lauded her performance, saying “Luckily Mr. Radcliffe’s blandness is offset by Ms. Watson’s spiky impatience. Harry may show off his expanding wizardly skills … but Hermione … earns the loudest applause with a decidedly unmagical punch to Draco Malfoy’s deserving nose”.[20] Although Prisoner of Azkaban remains the lowest-grossing Harry Potter film as of January 2008, Watson’s personal performance won her two Otto Awards and the Child Performance of the Year award from Total Film.[21][22][23]
With Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), both Watson and the Harry Potter film series reached new milestones. The film set records for a Harry Potter opening weekend, a non-May opening weekend in the US, and an opening weekend in the UK. Critics praised the increasing maturity of Watson and her teenage co-stars; the New York Times called her performance “touchingly earnest”.[24] For Watson, much of the humour of the film sprang from the tension among the three lead characters as they matured. She said, “I loved all the arguing … I think it’s much more realistic that they would argue and that there would be problems.”[25] Nominated for three awards for Goblet of Fire, Watson won a bronze Otto Award.[26][27][28] Later that year, Watson became the youngest person to appear on the cover of Teen Vogue.[29] 2006 found Watson playing Hermione in The Queen’s Handbag, a special mini-episode of Harry Potter in celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s 80th birthday.[30]
The fifth film in the Harry Potter franchise, 2007’s Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, was a financial success, setting a record worldwide, opening-weekend gross of $332.7 million.[31] Watson won the inaugural National Movie Award for Best Female Performance.[32] As the fame of the actress and the series continued, Watson and fellow Harry Potter co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint left imprints of their hands, feet, and wands in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood on 9 July 2007.[33]

Watson’s first non-Harry Potter role was in the 2007 TV film Ballet Shoes,

as Pauline Fossil. [34] She said of the project, “I was all set to go back to school after finishing Harry Potter [and the Order of the Phoenix] but couldn’t resist Ballet Shoes. I really loved it”.[35] A BBC adaptation of Noel Streatfeild‘s novel of the same name, the film stars Watson as aspiring actress Pauline Fossil, the eldest of three sisters around whom the story revolves.[36] Director Sandra Goldbacher commented, “Emma was perfect for Pauline … She has a piercing, delicate aura that makes you want to gaze and gaze at her”.[35] Ballet Shoes was broadcast on Boxing Day in the United Kingdom,[37] to an estimated audience of 5.2 million (22 percent of the viewing total).[38] The film received generally poor critical reviews, and The Times described it as “progress[ing] with little emotional investment, or magic, or dramatic momentum”.[39][40] However, the performances of its cast were generally praised; The Daily Telegraph wrote the film “was certainly well done, not least because it confirmed how good child actors are these days”.[41]
Watson starred in the animated film The Tale of Despereaux,

released in December 2008.[5] She voiced the character of Princess Pea in the film, a children’s comedy which also starred Matthew Broderick and Tracey Ullman.


Although Radcliffe and Grint had confirmed their commitment to acting, Watson had expressed uncertainty about her future. Speaking to Newsweek in 2006, she said, “Daniel and Rupert seem so sure … I love to perform, but there are so many other things I love doing.”[42]
However, despite rumours that she had refused the final two Harry Potter installments,[8] Watson signed for the sixth and seventh films in March 2007. She explained the decision was tough as filming would continue to dominate her life for three to four years, but in the end “the pluses outweighed the minuses”.[10] Filming for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the sixth film, began in late 2007 and has since finished.[43]

Watson’s extended family has grown as her divorced parents both have children by new partners. Her father has identical twin girls, Nina and Lucy,[44] and a four-year old son, Toby. Her mother’s partner has two sons (Emma’s stepbrothers), who “regularly stay with her”.[45] Watson’s full brother, Alexander, has appeared as an extra in two Harry Potter films,[44] and her half-sisters were cast as the young Pauline Fossil in the BBC’s Ballet Shoes adaptation.[44]
After moving to Oxford with her mother and brother, Watson attended The Dragon School, an independent preparatory school, until June 2003 and then moved to Headington School, an independent school for girls, also in Oxford.[7] While on film sets, Watson and her peers were tutored for up to five hours a day;[46] despite the focus on filming she maintained high academic standards. In June 2006, Watson took GCSE examinations in 10 subjects, achieving eight A* and two A grades;[47] she was a target of friendly ridicule on the Harry Potter set because of her straight-A exam results.[29] She received A grades in her 2008 A level examinations in English Literature, Geography and Art,[48] and in her 2007 AS (advanced subsidiary) level in History of Art.[49] Watson is currently taking a gap year,[48] with filming of the two part adaptation of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows starting in February 2009,[50] after which she “definitely wants to go to university” to study English.[51] Though rumoured to have secured a place to read English at Trinity College, Cambridge,[52] she’s “still deciding whether to take up a university place at Oxbridge or an Ivy League college.”[53]

Watson’s work in the Harry Potter series has brought her more than £10 million,[4] and she has acknowledged she will never have to work for money. However, she has declined to quit school to become a full-time actress, saying “People can’t understand why I don’t want to … but school life keeps me in touch with my friends. It keeps me in touch with reality”.[10] She has been positive about working as a child actress, saying her parents and colleagues helped make her experience happy.[29][45][54] Watson enjoys a close friendship with her fellow Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, describing them as a “unique support system” for the stresses of film work.
Watson lists her interests as dancing, singing, field hockey, tennis, art,[7] fly fishing,[55] and donates to WTT (Wild Trout Trust).[56][57][58] She describes herself as “a bit of a feminist“,[10][45] and admires fellow actors Johnny Depp and Julia Roberts.[59]
As she has grown older, Watson has become something of a budding fashion devotee. She has said she sees fashion as something very similar to art, which she studied in school. In September 2008, she told a blogger, “I’ve been focusing on art a lot, and fashion’s a great extension of that.”[60]

She is perhaps best known as the Doritos Girl from her 1998 Super Bowl commercial, and for her portrayal of Rita Lefleur on the UPN sitcom Eve. In 1998, she was named by People magazine as one of 50 most beautiful people in the world.[1]

Early life

Landry was born July 21, 1973 grew up in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. This southern region of Louisiana is referred to as “Acadiana“, or Cajun country. Landry is of French (Cajun) descent.[2][3] She attended Cecilia High School, graduating in 1991. In high school, she was captain of the cheerleaders. She attended the University of Southwestern Louisiana and majored in mass communication. She is an alumnni of Kappa Delta Sorority.

Pageantry

Her first foray into pageantry came in 1990 when she was crowned Miss Louisiana Teen USA. She represented Louisiana in the 1990 Miss Teen USA pageant held in Biloxi, Mississippi in July 1990, where she placed first in the preliminary swimsuit and evening gown competitions, but was ranked seventh during the final competition and couldn’t reach the final 6.
In 1995, Landry won the 1996 Miss Louisiana USA title, becoming the first former Miss Louisiana Teen USA to win the Miss crown. She went on to compete in the 1996 Miss USA pageant, which was broadcast live from South Padre Island, Texas in February 1996 — she placed third highest after the preliminary competition and second highest on average during the final Top 10 competition. She was the highest placed of the Top 6 finalists and eventually went on to win the 1996 title.
She is the first former Miss Teen USA delegate to actually win the Miss USA crown (her predecessor Shanna Moakler, previously Miss Rhode Island Teen USA, Miss New York USA and first runner-up to Miss USA Chelsi Smith, only inherited the title after Smith became Miss Universe).
Landry competed in the 1996 Miss Universe pageant held in Las Vegas in May that year. She placed first in the preliminary competition and was ranked second in the evening gown and interview events during the final competition. She was second going in to the next round of six delegates, but she was eliminated after the judges’ questions.
Until 1999, Landry was the only former Miss Teen USA delegate to compete at Miss Universe. Her record at all three pageants was not surpassed until 2000 when Miss USA 2000, Lynnette Cole made the top 5 at all three pageants.

Post pageants

Landry has done much modeling for photographers and magazines. As a spokeswoman for the Doritos chips brand, she appeared in celebrated TV commercials airing during the 1998, 1999 and 2000 Super Bowl football games.

She has been listed as one of FHM magazine’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World numerous times. She was twice named on Stuff Magazines 100 Sexiest Women list. Askmen.com has named her one of the 50 Most Beautiful Women and 99 Most Desirable Women in the World.
In 2002, she hosted the second season of the hidden-camera series Spy TV. From 2003 to 2006, she was a regular cast member of the UPN sitcom Eve.
Landry has participated in the show Fear Factor and was runner-up. She is an avid athlete and also participated in the Boston Marathon.
Currently, she hosts the English and Spanish-language versions of Spotlight to Nightlight, an interview show on Yahoo where she talks with celebrity mothers about parenting issues. She also launched a lifestyle line, Belle Parish in 2009. Belle Parish launched with a children’s clothing line in September 2009 and will be in stores Spring 2010. The line is inspired by her Southern upbringing and the keepsake items her mother saved from her childhood.

Did you know that their are various types of bipolar disorder which range from mild to severe?

Did you know these types of bipolar disorder?

There are several types of bipolar disorder; all involve episodes of depression and mania to a degree. They include bipolar I, bipolar II, cyclothymic disorder, mixed bipolar, and rapid-cycling bipolar disorder.
A person affected by bipolar I disorder has had at least one manic episode in his or her life. A manic episode is a period of abnormally elevated mood, accompanied by abnormal behavior that disrupts life.
Bipolar II is similar to bipolar I disorder, with moods cycling between high and low over time. However, in bipolar II disorder, the “up” moods never reach full-on mania.
In rapid cycling, a person with bipolar disorder experiences four or more episodes of mania or depression in one year. About 10% to 20% of people with bipolar disorder have rapid cycling.
In most forms of bipolar disorder, moods alternate between elevated and depressed over time. But with mixed bipolar disorder, a person experiences both mania and depression simultaneously or in rapid sequence.
Cyclothymia (cyclothymic disorder) is a relatively mild mood disorder. People with cyclothymic disorder have milder symptoms than in full-blown bipolar disorder.

Suicide is a very real risk for people with bipolar disorder, whether they’re in a manic or depressive episode — 10%-15% of people with bipolar disorder kill themselves. But treatment greatly lowers the risk.
