Westminster Dog Show 2012


Westminster Dog Show 2012
Malachy the Pekingese is just like Glove Romney—only better groomed. He's the presumptive preferred to win the 136th Westminster Run Team Dog Display today, but this is why we carry contests. Because you just never know.

During the starting nights Westminster, Malachy (who has 114 Best in Display channels but has never won here) was known as best in the Toy team, the most very competitive classification at Westminster, and the activities publication at Wynn Las Nevada prefers his possibilities this night time.

Other team victors from yesterday involve the In in german shepherd Leader Crisis in the Herding group; Cinders, a Wire-Haired Dachshund, in the Chase group; and Highlights Ruffian, a attractive Dalmatian, in Non-Sporting. (And for those who like cheering underdogs, no Dachshund or Dalmatian has ever been known as Best in Display at Westminster.)

But there are more competitors to come today, such as pets from the Wearing, Operating and Terrier categories. And it's all major up to Best in Display at the end of the night time, when assess Cindy Vogels will figure out who will be Many Dog for 2012.

So take up your pet and let's check out all the measures.

Very Hot Dogs: For those who worry Westminster drawback indicators after tonight's rivalry, may I suggest Josh Dean's fantastic new publication, Display Dog, which goes on the planet of very competitive purebreds. Research an clip about the WKC show here, but for those who like their dog testimonies on the kinkier area, Dean has a entertaining item on Deadspin that shows more about the sex daily lifetime of champ show pets than you might have desired to know. Think of it as a shagging dog tale.

The Other Top Dog: While the four sporting categories were competitive at Madison Rectangle Garden yesterday, another dog rivalry was developing in Los Angeles—the first Glowing Receiver Prizes.

In the spirit of the big winner's movie, I'll remain silent about who won in the film category—but his name rhymes with "Uggie."

The Sporting Group: And they're letting the dogs out....

Brittany: First up tonight is a brown-and-white Brittany named Cam, who hails from Arkansas. he's got a great smile.

Pointer: Known for that rigid pose, the Pointer is the symbol of the Westminster Kennel Club. Presumably, Josh, our entry tonight won't pull an MIA at the Super Bowl and point with the wrong digit.

German Short-Haired Pointer: Considered the SUD—the Sport Utility Dog—this canine can do it all when it comes to hunting. This breed also won Best in Show in 2005.

German Wire-Haired Pointer: And we have our first good beard of the evening with Oakley, who has spent a little time in Brazil lately. Perhaps looking for his own canine Gisele?

Chesapeake Bay Retriever: As the name implies, this breed loves the water—and the Chessie might be the greatest water dog of them all. This one has a lot of spring in his step tonight. He seems to have brought his Bay Game.

Curly-Coated Retriever: Uh oh—Bramble is a little too fired up tonight. He is climbing all over his handler. Bad form at a dog show. But his enthusiasm is appreciated by the crowd.

Flat-Coated Retriever: Another jumper. this retriever can't stay on the ground—great vertical, too. And he's an old-timer—nine years old.

Golden Retriever: Well who doesn't love a Golden Retriever? I'll tell you who—the judges at Westminster. A Golden has never won Best in Show. Can Shock pull off a shocker?

Labrador Retriever: Another beloved dog—a black Lab. For 20 years, the Labrador Retriever has been the most popular dog with the American Kennel Club. And this is a very cute one.

Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever: Do ducks really need to pay a toll? This fellow has a lot of spirit as well. Boy, the dogs came out pumped up tonight.

English Setter: Well Dazzle is dazzling. What a beautiful greyish dog. I like her chances for being a finalist in this group. And she's having a great season so far.

Gordon Setter: This black-and-tan beauty looks a little zaftig to me—but it could just be a thick coat.

Irish Setter: Another American favorite. It looked like they were blindfolding this dog, but the handler was just pulling Emily's ear over her face to show off her elegant neck. But you knew that.

Irish Red and White Setter: Gilbey comes from Wheeler, Wisconsin, and his handler says, "Alright, handsome, let's go!" Way to fire up the dog, coach. But he looks a little distracted as he makes his turn.

American Water Spaniel: I'm not sure why a Water Spaniel is named Digger—where exactly is he going to dig?—but this one is lively and the crowd is digging him.

Boykin Spaniel: We have another jumper in this guy, which is a new breed for the WKC show. So far, none of the six new breeds for 2012 have won their respective groups.

Clumber Spanlel: Here's what you need to know about this breed—it has webbed feet. Oh, like you're perfect?

Black Cocker Spaniel: A very popular breed, with Kim Kardashian-like hair extensions, this dog was not expected to win his breed. But here he is.

ASCOB Cocker Spaniel: ASCOB stands for Any Solid Color Other (Than) Black. And this one is a beauty.

Parti-Color Spaniel: Parti People in the house! This black-and-white Spaniel, Stanley, really worked the crowd. But his hair seemed a little long for a real hunting dog.

English Cocker Spaniel: A beautiful dog with a coat like a silver-back gorilla.

English Springer Spaniel: Another crowd favorite and classic hunting dog, this breed has won Best in Show six times. I think it will make the finals of this group.

Field Spaniel: An dog of a certain age, Darcy is a seven-year-old but she still has plenty of spring in her step.

Irish Water Spaniel: Picture a chocolate-colored Labradoodle with a tail like a rat—that's what this breed is. That rat tail freaks me out a little...

Sussex Spaniel: This breed last won Westminster in 2009, with the adorable Stump. I don't see a repeat here.

Welsh Springer Spaniel: Closely related to the English Springer, this breed is a little smaller. But I like the English version better. That's me.

Spinone Italiano: This dog absolutely has the best beard of the entire show! And evidently it looks good wet. Just sayin'...

Weimaraner: One of my favorite dog breeds—mainly because of the photographer William Wegman—the Weimaraner is actually a great hunting dog. And this one has a beautiful punim.

Wire-Haired Pointing Griffon: As I pointed out last night, this dog is pronounced Grif-FON not Griffin. A little twee if you ask me...

And that's the end of the Sporting Group. Who will take it?

To the Left: Show Dog author Josh Dean tweets: "Show dogs always run on a handler's left, the side facing the judge. To make them run on the right feels wrong to them."

Sporting Group Finalists: Labrador Retriever, English Setter, Irish Setter, English Springer Spaniel, and the Wire-Hired Pointing Griffon...

Who will it be?

Best in Sporting Group: And Emily, the Irish Setter, wins the group!

And she's a working mom—with fifteen children.

Coming up next: It's 8:45 in New York and up next is the Working Group, then the Terriers. And in case you're wondering what the winner gets to do tomorrow, he or she will dine and Sardi's and then spend some quality time with Donald Trump.

Second prize is not having to meet Donald Trump.

Best in Show before Best in Show: Because I can't get enough of Christopher Guest's mockumentary, here's another clip from Best in Show.

Kate Upton On the Protect of the 2012


Kate Upton on the protect of the 2012 Activities Shown swimwear concern was unveiled on "Late Display With Mark Letterman" Wednesday evening, but though a variety of the issue's designs were on side to provide the nights Top 10 record, it was obvious from Letterman's experience that the whole element seemed to be a breast.

With 10 designs packed onto a settee in the Ed Sullivan Cinema natural area (and not on stage), Letterman told the veil to be lowered from a commercial attached higher above Broadway and the protect of the concern was unveiled.

Upton seemed happy, but not excited to have been chosen as the protect young lady, and the other nine designs seemed, well, statuesque in their responses.

"Will you do me a favor?" Letterman pleaded the team before the introduction. "When we mention the victorious one, will the other nine of you weather out? Convert over the furniture? Damage the position and then weather out screaming?"

When the designs didn't really respond one way or the other, Letterman advised them on. "Come on! Leap up and down and weather out of there. Convert over the table! Damage the dump! Go crazy!"

That stimulated them to a circular of applause, followed by a halfhearted push of the desk and a increased cast in the air.

Despite the introduction having been intensely talked about during the past evening of Grammy Prizes telecast, the visitor's response seemed warm.

Nikki Minaj Grammy Performance

Nikki Minaj Grammy Performance
In what should come as zero shock to anyone who saw Nicki Minaj try to reenact “The Exorcism of Jane Rose” during her efficiency at Sunday’s Grammy Prizes, the Catholic Group has released a declaration condemning the activities of the “Superbass” celebrity.

As expected by our own Maura Judkis, the faith-based company made an furious information launch published by Catholic Group chief executive Expenses Donohue as a reaction to Minaj’s version of her tune “Roman Vacation.” Donohue mocked Minaj but mainly held responsible the Producing Academia for enabling the number to air, a significant fact given that the professional creator of the Grammys and Minaj have informed inconsistent testimonies about how the efficiency got accepted. More on that in a second. First, the furious report.

After reporting Minaj as “fresh off looking like a deceive with Madonna at the Extremely Dish,” Donohue’s missive provides a somewhat precise summarize of the hip-hop freaktress’s efficiency.

“Minaj’s efficiency started on level with a model confessional skit,” he creates. “This was followed by a recorded video showing a model exorcism. With marked wine glass in the qualifications, she showed up on level again with choir young children and priests moving.”

Yep, there are the young children, priests and the marked wine glass.

He continues: “Perhaps the most vulgar part was the sexual statement that showed a scantily clad female dancer stretching backwards while an altar boy knelt between her legs in prayer. Finally, ‘Come All Ye Faithful’ was sung while a man posing as a bishop walked on stage; Minaj was shown levitating.”

As visual confirmation, here she is levitating.

Donohue then blames the Recording Academy for allowing this purportedly offensive stage show to proceed. “Whether Minaj is possessed is surely an open question, but what is not in doubt is the irresponsibility of The Recording Academy,” he says. “Never would they allow an artist to insult Judaism or Islam.”

While not everyone may have been offended by Minaj’s performance based on religious grounds, many have panned the number for being a musical trainwreck.

Ken Ehrlich, the aforemention executive producer of the Grammy telecast, doesn’t sound like a huge fan of what Minaj did, but noted during an interview Monday on “CBS This Morning” that he and his fellow Grammy organizers don’t like to limit the creativity of their artists.

“I looked at it and said, ‘Okay,’ ” he said of Minaj’s exorcism-related piece of performance art. “I knew about her alter ego. I was kind of aware of what that was. I definitely had some questions about it.”

Minaj, however, tells a different story.

CPAC Collecting


At last years CPAC collecting, the simple look of a Debbie Palin imitator was enough to place some participants into a star-struck madness.

Such was Palin's power among traditional activists in Feb 2011, just a few several weeks after she performed a significant aspect in this years midterms and when she was stoking rumours about her own presidential dreams.

This season, CPAC participants won't have to negotiate on a doppelganger, as the former Canada governor is scheduled to produce the event's keynote deal with on Sunday.

But, with the The condition of michigan and Arizona ( az ) primaries growing at the end of the Calendar month and Extremely Wednesday following them in beginning Goal, how much effect will her terms have on race?

With Palin having receded from the statements -- and her effect having ceased within the Republican Celebration -- the party her language gets will be a analyze of how much swing she maintains in the grass-roots activity she personified not such a lengthy time ago.

Though the "rogue" politician is always responsible to early spring a shock, a resource within Palin's orbit said she would not recommend a presidential selection in her language but would instead aim to unite the traditional activity.

Despite her reduced account recently, Palin has eventually created a stage on this presidential pattern through her consistent TV looks on the Fox Information Route, which she performs from a home facilities in Canada.

But Palin's CPAC deal with will be her first community venture outside her home condition since she provided an beginning Nov language in Holiday to the Republican Celebration of California.

Though she has ceased shorter of advertising him overall, Palin has been working as a quasi-surrogate for Newt Gingrich of overdue and advised Republican voters before the Southern region Carolina and California primaries to thrown their ballots for the former House presenter.

But she has also said excellent elements about John Santorum, and the former California senator's three advantages on Wednesday could mess with her loyality of Gingrich.

Palin's partner, Todd, who recommended Gingrich last Calendar month, is not predicted to take a trip with her to California, since he is exercising for the yearly Hair straightener Dog snow vehicles competition in Canada, which starts in nine times.

Though she has gone out of her way to reward Gingrich and Santorum, Palin has progressively more brought up worries about Glove Mitt romney and encouraged again against views that the nationwide GOP front-runner is the person's unavoidable nominee.

"That shiny passion isn't there yet," Palin informed Greta Van Susteren previously this weeks time. "I believe a lot of that is in aspect the concept that it's a forgone bottom line that Glove Mitt romney will be the GOP choose. He certainly has the organization assistance and much of the press assistance. I also believe that he is the one that Chief executive Government would really like to controversy and to run against in Nov."

If Palin criticizes Glove romney even more overtly in her CPAC language, it could improve the issues the former Boston governor already encounters in succeeding over enough grass-roots conservatives to close the nomination soon.

No issue how much her effect may have ceased, Palin's existence results to be the discuss of the meeting on Sunday.

And though there was little obvious passion for her upcoming language as CPAC started out Exclusive, many of the former vice presidential nominee's most fervent practitioners strategy to come down on the occurrence this few times -- a existence that absolutely will enhance the vitality.

Michelle McCormick -- who quickly shifted to Wi from her ancient Arizona to help arrange for a Palin presidential promotion that never took place -- will be among those returning in California on Exclusive.

McCormick said that she would really like to see Palin become more effective in the presidential competition but comprehended if the former governor desired to see her household instead and remain outside the band.

"I know a lot of individuals out there think her celebrity has absolutely light, and reasonably it's probably been broken down a little bit, but I think everybody's going to be fascinated to notice what she has to say," McCormick said. "To be sincere with you, there's no one out there who's saying anything to suit the feelings of the Republican voters right now, and even though she is not managing, she might be able to at least generate the discussion like she was able to do with crony capitalism."

Indeed, the anti-crony capitalism screed that Palin revealed in a Work Day few times language in Wi became a regularly replicated concept among almost all of the GOP presidential prospects.

Though she is sure to release some of her once screaming unsupported claims on the CPAC audience, those willing for her to get behind a particular selection could come away frustrated.

Palin's language is more likely to be an indication of whether she plans to improve her existence in the competition going ahead.

"Gov. Palin's been very adamant: The procedure should proceed, we need more vetting, and it only allows the further we go into the procedure," said Bob Bannon, the film maker behind the pro-Palin documented, "The Undefeated." "If you go again and look at what she said and when she said it and how she said it, she is been once again very excellent at foretelling how this element has designed."

The whale shark carcass was later marketed for 1.7 thousand rupees (nearly $19,000), ABC News reviews.

After a 2005 analysis, the Worldwide Partnership for Discussion of Characteristics and Natural Options announced the international whale shark inhabitants was prone, MSNBC notices.

For many years, whale sharks have been highly popular by harpoon fisheries in South Japan, where individuals mainly used the species of catch meat and oil. However, it is now unlawful to search whale sharks in several nations around the world, such as Indian and the Belgium.

Proposition 8 Functions With No Obvious


Confirming from San Francisco and Los Angeles -- A government is attractive test has announced California's 2008 voter-approved ban on same-sex wedding unconstitutional, finishing that the prohibition provided no objective other than to "lessen the position and people pride of gays and lesbos."

The 2-1 judgment by the U.S. 9th World Court of Appeals was directly published to restrict its opportunity to California's region and possibly even prevent evaluation by the U.S. Substantial Court, lawful professionals said. However, gay-rights supporters confirmed Tuesday's choice as ancient, while practitioners of Idea 8 instantly promised to charm.

Instead of broadening the constitutional privileges of gays and lesbos, the test based its choice on a 1996 U.S. Substantial Court precedent that said a the greater part may not take away a minority's privileges without genuine factors.

"Proposition 8 functions with no obvious objective but to encourage on gays and lesbos, through the community law, a majority's personal disapproval of them and their connections," Assess Stephen Reinhardt composed for the test.

The judgment won't take impact immediately; practitioners of Idea 8 have two several weeks to attract the outlet test and 90 days to computer file a case for Substantial Court evaluation.

Though separated on the constitutional concern, the three-judge section all decided that ProtectMarriage, the backers of Idea 8, had the right or lawful "standing" to charm Primary U.S. Section Assess Vaughn R. Walker's 2010 judgment against the poll evaluate.

The section also all denied a obstacle by ProtectMarriage that Walker's judgment should be set aside because he never reveal that he was in a long run same-sex connection. Master, who has since on, decided after an unrivaled, two-week test that reviewed the significance of sex-related alignment and the record of wedding and gay privileges.

"It's no surprise that the 9th Circuit's decision is completely out of step with every other federal appellate and Supreme Court decision in American history on the subject of marriage," said Andy Pugno, a lawyer for ProtectMarriage. "Ever since the beginning of this case, we've known that the battle to preserve traditional marriage will ultimately be won or lost not here, but rather in the U.S. Supreme Court."

But other lawyers and legal scholars said the 9th Circuit might have the final word on Proposition 8 because the ruling was so pointedly limited to California, a state where voters stripped a minority of a right that already existed and where the usual justifications for a same-sex marriage ban, responsible parenting and procreation, are undercut by domestic partner laws.

Proposition 8 passed as a constitutional amendment six months after the California Supreme Court struck down a state law that limited marriage to a man and a woman, and an estimated 18,000 same-sex couples married during that time. The initiative also did not affect parenting rights of gays and lesbians, which are protected under other state laws.

"That legal background does not exist in most states," said University of Minnesota Law School professor Dale Carpenter, who has followed the case.

Loyola law professor Douglas NeJaime agreed, noting that Tuesday's decision allows the U.S. Supreme Court to postpone a pronouncement on same-sex marriage until a more sweeping case comes along.

"The 9th Circuit decided the case in a way that would allow the Supreme Court to affirm without having to significantly expand on its existing jurisprudence and without having to rule on marriage for same-sex couples on a national scale," NeJaime said.

ProtectMarriage could ask a larger panel of the 9th Circuit to review Tuesday's ruling, which could keep the case in the circuit for another year. If the group went directly to the Supreme Court and won review, the high court could rule on the case next year.

ProtectMarriage has long said it wanted the high court to get the case as soon as possible, but its representative said Tuesday that the organization has yet to decide its next step.

In the opinion, Reinhardt drew close parallels between Proposition 8 and a 1992 Colorado initiative that barred the government from passing laws to protect the civil rights of gays and lesbians. The U.S. Supreme Court, in a decision written by Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, struck down Colorado's law in 1996.

Calling Proposition 8 "remarkably similar" to the Colorado initiative, the 9th Circuit said both measures singled out one class of people and removed an existing right without serving any reasonable purpose.

"It is implausible to think that denying two men or two women the right to call themselves married could somehow bolster the stability of families headed by one man and one woman," the court said.

David Boies, one of the lawyers for two same-sex couples who sued to overturn Proposition 8, said the ruling presented "the most difficult set of facts" possible for ProtectMarriage because the decision "so squarely fits" the high court's precedent in Evans vs. Romer, the case that struck down the Colorado measure.

“I’m sorry, goodbye,” it read.

Susan Powell, a pretty 28-year-old mother of two, was reported missing Dec. 7, 2009, after she failed to show up for her stockbroker job in Utah.

Authorities in the couple’s hometown of West Valley City, about 10 miles outside Salt Lake City, quickly turned their attention to Josh Powell. He’s been the only “person of interest” in the case, but had repeatedly denied any involvement in her disappearance.

“I would never even hurt her,” a tearful, red-eyed Josh Powell told CBS’ Early Show in August. “People who know me know that I could never hurt Susan.”

On Sunday, the lawyer for Susan Powell’s parents, Chuck and Judy Cox, told the AP the children had started talking to their grandparents about things they remembered from the night their mother vanished.

“They were beginning to verbalize more,” said attorney Steve Downing, whose clients had custody of the children. “The oldest boy talked about that they went camping and that Mommy was in the trunk. Mom and Dad got out of the car and Mom disappeared.”

Gena Rowlands showed up with Gazzara in "Opening Evening," which also appeared Cassavetes. Cassavetes and Rowlands were married; he passed away in 1989. Falk passed away last season.

"It smashes my center to have this era come to an end. Ben recommended so much to all of us. To our family members. To Bob. To Chris. To have them gone now is harmful to me," she said in a report.

She said her desires and feelings went out to "all his devoted and amazing lovers around the community."

The university was a beehive of action in those times, converting out such supporters of strategy operating as Marlon Brando, Montgomery Clift, Wayne Dean, Barbara Bel Geddes, Shelley Winter conditions, John Newman, Joanne Woodward, Rod Steiger and Jules Harris.

"There's a lot of voodoo about the Characters Facilities," Gazzara informed The Associated Click in 1966.

Besides Danja, Gazzara is live through by his spouse, kid Age and a sister.

Encompass Ranger Outfielder Josh Hamilton


Two immediate concerns encompass Ranger outfielder Josh Hamilton, who dropped off the truck in a very community way this weeks time.

The first: Why did it happen? We can't response, except to say that habit is a difficult and more strong challenger than the best glass pitcher Hamilton will ever experience.

The second: How does this impact Hamilton's upcoming with the Rangers? This is something we could know earlier rather than later.

Eligible for no cost organization at the end of this period, Hamilton had been searching for a long-term agreement. At 30, even under the best of conditions, he might not have another taken at one. With a body that has been susceptible to malfunction and could be regarded "high mileage" after his well-chronicled liquor and substance mistreatment, any group, such as the Ranger, would have purpose to be eager of the threats.

Hamilton has said he will not settle an expansion after he reviews to may exercising. That was planned to occur in approximately two several weeks. In 121 game titles last period -- his 4th with the Ranger -- he batted .298 with 25 house works.

Now, this.

Hamilton's wife, Katie, Tweeted Friday morning:

"Truly appreciate all the encouraging & supportive tweets we've been getting. God is Faithful and forgives- so thankful that you all are"


The Dallas Morning News reported Thursday night that Hamilton had been seen drinking at a Dallas-area bar on Monday. The Rangers told the paper they were "aware of the situation."

Hamilton, the 2010 AL MVP, had been suspended for more than three years early in his career before the Reds took a chance on him, then traded him to the Rangers, where he lived up to potential while living under constant supervision. He rebounded from a highly publicized incident in a bar in 2009.

Hamilton is scheduled to make $13.75 million -- $5 million more than a year ago -- in the final year of his current contract.

But Yahoo's Jeff Passan suggests Hamilton's bid for a long-term deal with the Ranger is "gone."

"It has to be. Already the Rangers had shown little inclination to lock up long-term a player who two years ago won the American League MVP award despite missing the final month. Texas, like most other clubs, fears Hamilton's body, brittle from his years of drug abuse, won't hold up. Whatever leverage Hamilton held is kaput, and only the madness of free agency will land him a payday."

Former PA Senator John Santorum is placing his promotion on carry right now as he has a larger fight to deal with. His daughter Jacob black suffers from Trisomy 18 (also known as Edwards Syndrome),a rare genetic issue due to the use of all or part of an additional Eighteenth chromosome. Last night, John Santorum's daughter (just 3 years old) was admitted to CHOP.

Infants created with Trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome) may have renal malformations, architectural center issues at entry into the world, colon huge outside your body (omphalocele), esophageal atresia, psychological retardation, development lack of, providing complications, the like, and experience from many other irregularities. Many kids created with this illness don't endure beyond one season. Actually, many fetuses die before being created.

Occupy Oakland About 150 People


Occupy Oakland About 150 People
Oakland law enforcement say they caught a total of about 150 people Weekend as protesters used a part of the day trying to get into a clear meeting center, and later smashed into City Area and tried to inhabit a YMCA.

Police spokesperson Mark Thomason says most of the busts came around 8 p.m. That's when law enforcement took about 100 protesters into child legal care as they marched through the municipality's town center, with some coming into a YMCA building.

About 20 protesters were caught earlier in manufactured, after law enforcement say they used stones, wines and other things at authorities and ripped down walls.

Police say three officers were injured. Officers used tear gas and "flash" grenades on the protesters after they refused to leave.

Authorities were still tabulating the exact number of arrests late Saturday.

National Chocolate Cake Day


Jan 27 is National Chocolate Cake Day in the U. s. Declares. To be sincere, I considered every day was chocolate cake day. This heated (and flourless) chocolate lava cake is delightful enough to assert a national special event. But to help keep us all targeted, there are several national food day details sailing around like this one to create sure all types of self-indulgent treats get their day.

I’m a little wondering, though, how Nationwide Pie Day, Nationwide Peanut Butter Day, and Nationwide Chocolates Meals Day all slip in the same several weeks time. I have a coming doubt that one more several weeks time of Jan is right about the time that most people have sensed decent about the three several weeks of extreme weight loss they have done after the vacations. Acknowledge it. Your opinions has probably come near to this at some point: “I’ve been to the gym twice this several weeks time. Of course I are entitled to pie/peanut butter/chocolate cake!”

Molten lava desserts are the best little desserts to enjoy Nationwide Chocolates Meals Day. They need relatively little attempt and create in less than 15 moments. Even if the desserts slip into a shaking share of heated chocolate, I guarantee you that your visitors will not grumble. Take care of them with enough ice treatment and in one, two, three, swoops of their spoons the dessert will be gone.

But if you do want to impress a loved one, you might want a practice run or two to figure out the best results with your oven. If you underbake it, you will end up with a puddle of chocolate (there are worse things). If you overbake, by even a minute, no molten center – and you’ll end up with more of a brownie cake (again, not a travesty).

Now get celebrating. And keep this recipe handy for Valentine's Day.

Demi Moore 911 Call


"Send an crisis right now. This is an crisis."

So starts the extraordinary 911 contact, in which Demi Moore's associates are seriously trying to get an crisis to the actress' Beverly Hillsides home as easily as possible, which was launched today by the Los Angeles Fireplace Office.

On the intensely redacted documenting, which persists about 10 moments, one of Moore's associates starts fighting with the dispatcher amongst misunderstandings over which organization protects the community and should be delivering paramedics.

"Why is there not an ambulance coming now?" the woman says testily before explaining what caused the star to "act crazy."

"She smoked something. It's not marijuana but it's similar to incense. She seems to be having convulsions of some sort.

"She's semi-conscious ... barely. She's convulsing."

The phone is passed to another woman, who tells the dispatcher, "She's not breathing normally ... she's burning up."

Asked if she knows exactly what Moore smoked or any other drugs she might have consumed, the second woman replies: "She's been having some issues with some other stuff lately. I don't know what she's been taking or not."

The dispatcher calms the woman down and explains how to treat Moore, stressing to keep her airway open.

By the end of the call, the paramedics have arrived to take Moore to Sherman Oaks Hospital, where she has since been discharged.

As E! News has previously reported, the 49-year-old Moore had been hosting a birthday party for a friend at the time and had exhibited "pretty hyper" behavior in the moments before the 911 call.

The Bruins said later they’re disappointed Thomas didn’t attend “a great day”, and his views don’t reflect those of the team owners or organization.

Chip Kelly Does Everything Else Quick

Chip Kelly
Chip Kelly does everything else quick, so it probably shouldn't come as any shock that it took him just a few time to create up his thoughts on serious overtures from the NFL. But on the pumps of late-breaking statements Saturday evening verifying his awaiting quit from Or, it changes out even institution football's most infamous leadfoot is subject to a attack of cool feet:

University of Oregon football coach Chip Kelly told a highly placed UO source late Sunday night that he has reversed course and decided to turn down an offer from the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The source told The Register-Guard earlier Sunday night that Kelly had reached an agreement to become Tampa Bay's head coach. "It's done," the source said. Just before midnight, Kelly changed his mind, telling the source: "I'm staying."

Kelly told one assistant coach Sunday night that he had been offered the Tampa Bay job, but Kelly told him he wasn't certain what he would do.


As of this morning, Kelly has apparently decided to stick with the program he's built into a consistent national contender in Eugene, at least temporarily defusing visions of a ticking NCAA time bomb in the process. The fit just wasn't right: Kelly is a career college coach with just three years as a head coach under his belt, just five years removed from the offensive coordinator gig at New Hampshire. The wildly productive system he's honed and perfected over the last decade likely will not translate well to the next level, especially on a team with a 250-pound starting quarterback who's not much of a threat to run. Kelly's not a young man (he turned 48 in November), but at this point in his career, a move to the next level would be primarily an exercise in ego, waiting to blow up in everyone's face in two or three years.

Besides: NCAA investigation notwithstanding, there's no reason he can't finish what he started at Oregon by winning a national championship. Now that the whole NFL thing is (presumably) over, the pedal is hereby cleared for return to the metal.

49ers Rapidly Across


49ers Rapidly Across
After the last soccer tennis ball had been broke, and the last conquer had been quit, the 49ers' go instructor strode rapidly across the area to move palms with his version.

There was no occurrence this time around. No modern again putting, or absurd scuffling. Jim Harbaugh and Leaders go instructor Tom Coughlin shook palms temporarily, talked for a moment and Harbaugh strolled off the area at Candlepower unit Playground on Saturday as quickly as he could.

Just like that, a wonderful season for a fresh go instructor had come to an end in in the long run of the NFC Title Game. Just like that, Harbaugh's secret carpeting trip came sailing again to soil.

In typical fashion, Harbaugh stood up in front of the gathered hoard afterward and took it like an adult.

He told us how proud he was of his team. How they had fought to the end and could very well have won the game.

"It wasn't there for us today," said Harbaugh, all jutting jaw and internalized seethe. In a lot of ways, we played good enough to win ..."

The words trailed off and you could see the coach was in a good amount of pain.

And then he looked up and gave us the last in a long line of Harbaugh-isms that helped define the season, the coach and the team. "A man can be defeated," Harbaugh said. "But he can't be destroyed."

There you have it. Mere minutes after a crushing defeat, in which his mistake-free team had betrayed its own nature at the worst possible moment, Harbaugh stood defiant and promised the world that he would not be defeated.

It was a surreal moment because Harbaugh has built something like a cloak of invincibility around himself. It was still kind of hard to believe he'd been defeated in the NFC Championship. Isn't this the guy who makes it happen somehow, some way?

From his stunning success at Stanford, to the amazing turnaround he orchestrated this season with the 49ers, Harbaugh has established one thing: He's not your average football coach.

For one, he doesn't lose very much.

He went 29-21 over four seasons with bookish Stanford kids. And he posted 14 wins against four losses his first year with San Francisco, inheriting a team that went 6-10 the season before.

That makes him only the fourth rookie head coach in NFL history to win 13 games or more, ranking second in 49ers history to a guy named George Seifert, who won 14 in his inaugural campaign in 1989. Perhaps most impressively, he's the only man in NFL history to win that many as a rookie having inherited a losing team.

It was ironic that both Jim Harbaugh, and his brother John, came so close to winning their respective championships Sunday, with John's Ravens falling to the Patriots 23-20 and the Jim's 49ers falling to the Giants 20-17.

There was much similarity in how both teams were coached and how hard they fought to force a rematch of November's much-hyped Har-bowl, won by the elder Harbaugh.

That game was just one of many memorable moments for Jim Harbaugh this season, from the comeback in Philadelphia to the infamous handshake in Detroit to the Monday Night blackout victory over Pittsburgh.

Harbaugh built the 2011-2012 Niners in his own image, asking the players to dedicate themselves wholly to the team.

He molded the plan to the talent, unlike so many of his recent predecessors. Let Alex Smith do what he's good at. Let Vernon Davis stretch the field. Let Patrick Willis and Justin Smith loose.

Let the players take responsibility, and more than anything, never criticize them in public.

But in the end, it will be Harbaugh's intensity - along with his quirky, driven personality - that we'll remember from his rookie campaign.

One can be assured that Coach Harbaugh will not let his players be destroyed by Sunday's loss. Anybody can tell you that.

Just ask Carl Banks. Outside the crowded corridors of Candlestick, in the chaos after the game, the Giants legendary linebacker leaned against the wall, waiting to get by.

Banks had played a few big games in this stadium against some of the finest 49ers teams ever assembled. He said the place looked a lot like it did back in the day. In fact, he said, "I don't think they've changed a damn thing."

But he also said the 49ers looked familiar to him, on this rainy Sunday.

"The 49ers played great today. A lot like they used to," Banks said. "I'm a huge fan of Jim Harbaugh. He's fundamentally sound. I competed against him as a college player and a pro.

Seal And Heidi Klum


New statements have surfaced that Heidi Klum is getting a divorce her man Close off because of his challenging drinking.

Hollywood's fantastic several and their administration are still yet to thoughts on the past's reviews of a divided, but a resource has said their connection was in problems because the musician was 'off the rails'.

The stress is considered to have began when the several holidayed with their three kids, and Heidi's child from a past connection, in Ibiza in May.

A source told the Sunday Mirror: 'They were always the couple everybody strived to be but lately it all started to change.

'Seal seems to have been partying a lot more often than usual.

'When they had their holiday in Ibiza last summer, Seal hit it hard, was out at clubs and with his friends a lot and Heidi was left with their kids trying to enjoy herself. The cracks were appearing and everybody was talking during that trip. He seemed off the rails.'

The insider added: 'They've spent a lot of time apart too on work assignments and that hasn't helped matters.

'Then when Seal came back to the UK to do promotional work for his next album, he seemed sleepy and not with it on shows like Loose Women, when he was very late for his appearance.'

German-born Heidi, 38, is reportedly expected to file papers at Los Angeles’ County Superior Court this week citing irreconcilable differences between the pair who married at Seal’s beachfront home in Mexico in 2005.

A spokesman for the former Victoria’s Secret model yesterday said a statement was being prepared which would be released imminently.

A spokesman for Seal, 48 – real name Seal Henry Samuel – did not return calls but a cryptic message posted on the singer’s Twitter page on Friday read: ‘The End.’

The message was attached to a picture that appeared to show the star’s forearm bearing an imprint of a set of wings – a possible reference to Miss Klum’s role as a Victoria’s Secret winged ‘Angel’ model.

The split paves the way for a multi-million-pound divorce battle between the golden couple.

They have three children together – Henry, six, Johan, five, and Lou, two – as well as Miss Klum’s daughter Leni, seven, from a previous relationship with Italian businessman Flavio Briatore.

Heidi, one of the world’s most in-demand models, is reported to have earned more than £12 million in the past year alone.

Seal, who is best known for his Kiss From A Rose single, has sold more than 20 million albums and won three Brit Awards and three Grammys in a career spanning 20 years.

The couple own a home in Mexico and an £8.4 million mansion in Los Angeles. Yesterday there was no sign of them at the LA house, which is set in an exclusive gated community in Mandeville Canyon, in the Hollywood Hills.

Joe Paterno Condition

joe paterno
Joe Paterno's physicians said Wednesday that the former Penn State coach's scenario had become "serious," following problems from united states in latest times.

The winningest significant nfl and institution baseball instructor, Paterno was determined quickly after Penn State Panel of Trustees ousted him Nov. 9 in the consequences of the child sex mistreatment expenses against former associate Jerry Sandusky. While going through treatment, his wellness issues complicated when he smashed his hips — the same damage he continual during preseason exercise last year.

"Over the last few times Joe Paterno has knowledgeable further wellness issues," household spokesperson Dan McGinn said in a brief report to The Associated Click. "His physicians have now recognized his position as serious. His household will have no thoughts on the scenario and requests that their comfort be well known during this problem."

Paterno's kids Scott and Jay each took to Tweets on Wednesday night to oppose reviews that their dad had passed away.

Wrote Jay Paterno: "I appreciate the support & prayers. Joe is continuing to fight."

Quoting individuals close to the family, The Washington Post reported on its website that Paterno remained connected to a ventilator, but had communicated his wishes not to be kept alive through any extreme artificial means. The paper said his family was weighing whether to take him off the ventilator on Sunday.

The 85-year-old Paterno has been in the hospital since Jan. 13 for observation for what his family called minor complications from his cancer treatments. Not long before that, he conducted his only interview since losing his job, with the Post. Paterno was described as frail and wearing a wig. The second half of the two-day interview was conducted from his bedside.

Roughly 200 students and townspeople gathered Saturday night at a statue of Paterno just outside a gate at Beaver Stadium. Some brought candles, while others held up their smart phones to take photos of the scene. The mood was somber, with no chanting or shouting.

"Drove by students at the Joe statue," Jay Paterno tweeted. "Just told my Dad about all the love & support--inspiring him."

Penn State student David Marselles held a candle in his right hand and posed next to a life-sized cardboard cutout of Paterno that he keeps at his apartment. A friend took a photo on the frigid night.

"I came to Penn State because of Joe Paterno. Since I was a little kid, I've been watching the games ... screaming 'We Are ... Penn State' because of him. ... He inspired me to go to college," Marselles said. "With such a tragic event like this, I just thought it was necessary to show my support."

The final days of Paterno's Penn State career were easily the toughest in his 61 years with the university and 46 seasons as head football coach.

Sandusky, a longtime defensive coordinator who was on Paterno's staff during two national title seasons, was arrested Nov. 5 and ultimately charged with sexually abusing a total of 10 boys over 15 years. His arrest sparked outrage not just locally but across the nation and there were widespread calls for Paterno to quit.

Paterno announced late on Nov. 9 that he would retire at the end of the season, but hours later he received a call from board vice chairman John Surma, telling him he had been terminated. By that point, a crowd of students and media were outside the Paterno home. When news spread that Paterno had been dumped, there was rioting in State College.

Police on Saturday evening barricaded the block where Paterno lives, and a police car was stationed about 50 yards from his home. Several people had gathered in the living room of the house. No one was outside, other than reporters and photographers.

Trustees said this week they pushed Paterno out in part because he failed a moral responsibility to report an allegation made in 2002 against Sandusky to authorities outside the university. They also felt he had challenged their authority and that, as a practical matter, with all the media in town and attention to the Sandusky case, he could no longer run the team.

Paterno testified before the grand jury investigating Sandusky that he had relayed to his bosses an accusation that came from graduate assistant Mike McQueary, who said he saw Sandusky abusing a boy in the showers of the Penn State football building.

Paterno told the Post that he didn't know how to handle the charge, but a day after McQueary visited him, he spoke to the athletic director and the administrator with oversight over the campus police.

Wick Sollers, Paterno's lawyer, called the board's comments this week self-serving and unsupported by the facts. Paterno fully reported what he knew to the people responsible for campus investigations, Sollers said.

"He did what he thought was right with the information he had at the time," Sollers said.

Sandusky says he is innocent and is out on bail, awaiting trial.

The back and forth between Paterno's representative and the board reflects a trend in recent weeks, during which Penn State alumni — and especially former players, including Hall of Fame running back Franco Harris — have questioned the trustees' actions and accused them of failing to give Paterno a chance to defend himself.

Three town halls, in Pittsburgh, suburban Philadelphia and New York City, seemed to do little to calm the situation and dozens of candidates have now expressed interest in running for the board, a volunteer position that typically attracts much less interest.

While everyone involved has said the focus should be on Sandusky's accusers and their ordeals, the abuse scandal brought a tarnished ending to Paterno's sterling career. Paterno won 409 games and took the Nittany Lions to 37 bowl games and those two national championships, the last in the 1986 season. More than 250 of the players he coached went on to the NFL.

Throughout his coaching years, Paterno maintained that, yes, winning was important, but even more important was winning with honor.
