Dancing With the Stars 2011 Winner : Kirstie Alley’s final performances (Video)

Dancing With the Stars 2011 Winner : Kirstie Alley’s final performances (Video)

The Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver had fans cheering and black-and-gold towels waving as he samba-ed his way to a victory as the season 12 winner of "Dancing with the Stars" ahead of fellow finalists Kirstie Alley and Chelsea Kane.
"Starting this competition, I never thought I'd make it to the finals," the always-humble NFL player said upon being named winner. "I owe it all to Kym, who's the most amazing teacher."
Ward, who originally performed the high-energy samba during "personal story" week, dedicated his dance to his mother, who sat front-row in the audience during the finale dances.
"Mr. Irresistible" ran up to give his proud mom a peck on the cheek, which she brushed away, to the glee of the football star and the crowd.

"Hines, in all honestly, you're the MVP of 'Dancing with the Stars,'" judge Carrie Ann gushed. "You're nothing but consistency and focus ... you really dance with heart."
Outspoken Bruno appeared equally smitten by Ward's charms on the dance floor.
"You're a killer when you play your sport, and a charming dazzler on the dance floor," he said earnestly. "We all fall in love."
Ward and Johnson, who wowed the judges consistently throughout the season with their infectious energy and noticeable chemistry, were favorites going into the finals, though they faced stiff competition from Alley and Kane.
"Kirstie, you're like a phoenix," Bruno said of the actress' physical and technical transformation throughout the season. "You cheating girl, you saved the best for last!"
Even the usually stoic Len admitted that runner-up Kirstie had "overcome setbacks, improved weaknesses" and ultimately "produced [her] best dance yet."
Disney star Kane, who took home third place, was visibly upset by her early ouster, but the judges remained big fans of the bubbly actress.
"A lot of people may not have known who you are," Carrie Ann began, "but performances like this are why everyone will know who you are now. You're a very talented, artistic, beautiful, graceful woman."

Gabriella Pasqualotto Mumbai Cheerleader girl blog


South African cheerleader, IPL Mumbai team, Gabriella Pasqualotto was posting secretly blogging about the fun and flirting that take in post match parties. Pasqualotto had written that some players and celebrity sponsors treat grils like “like pieces of meat”.

In her blog, she claimed that the Aussies were “naughty”, one of them playing “kissing catches” with some of the girls despite his girlfriend waiting at home for him, while “Ol’ Graeme Smith will flirt with anything while his girlfriend walks behind him”.

“Usually only after day matches there is an exclusive after party and at night is when it all happens. The music pumps, the drinks flow and the cricketers come and go. We mingle and associate with important people of the IPL wearing their finest and sexiest, sponsors of all sorts, media and fashion shows, even Indian MTV! But the real fun happens in the VIP rooms where the players and night owls can cause scandal! The few Indian players we have met, such as MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma have been very polite and keep to themselves in the dark corners. Hotshots like Tendulkar with families at home are never present. The likes of Jonty Rhodes and Albie Morkel are notorious for having a good time with friends!

In her blog has also written that Gabriella Pasqualott: MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma have been very polite and keep to themselves in the dark corners. Hotshots like Tendulkar with families at home are never present. The likes of Jonty Rhodes and Albie Morkel are notorious for having a good time with friends!

BEFORE departing for India, I had friends and family passing on travel tips, advice and personal experiences. Some of it good, and some of it worrying. As this was my first trip overseas, I needed to take it all in. But with any challenge in life, I like to have an open heart, clear head and positive attitude. This was not just a holiday abroad, this was a job and nobody could prepare me to become a cricket-loving, cheerleading, IPL girl but me!

Already three weeks have passed and in that time I cannot believe how a group of normal girls can become instant celebrities! Each team of ten girls has a manager and we all receive strict instructions from them about safety, behaviour and reputation, as it seems girls from previous years did not heed the rule book!

For example, if people ask why we are in their country, we have to say that we are friends on holiday. The majority of Indians are cricket crazy, glued to their televisions, reading the papers, supporting their teams. So as the tournament kicked off, it became pretty obvious we were not telling the truth!

On our days off, we are free to explore and take in what India has to offer but its not always easy. You can just imagine, a group of fit, easy on the eye, western ladies cruising the congested busy streets…

To the citizens, we are practically like walking porn! All eyes are on you all the time; it is complete voyeurism. The women double take, see you and then pretend you do not exist. The men see your face, then your boobs, your butt, and then your boobs again! As we walk, all you hear is “IPL, IPL!” with a little head jingle!

Usually only after day matches there is an exclusive after party and at night is when it all happens. The music pumps, the drinks flow and the cricketers come and go. We mingle and associate with important people of the IPL wearing their finest and sexiest, sponsors of all sorts, media and fashion shows, even Indian MTV! But the real fun

‘Ol Graeme Smith will flirt with anything while his girlfriend lurks behind him. The Aussies are fun but naughty, such as Aiden Blizzard and Dan Christian. By the end of a crazy evening, a certain someone had played kissing catchers with three girls known to me only, although he has his own girlfriend back home. He cooed to each girl, “Come home with me, I just want to cuddle!’

I have come to realise that cricketers are the most loose and mischievious sportsmen I have come across. Makes me wonder if I should worry about them more then the commoners on the street! I still have a long while here, so I shall keep my tip list in mind.

Mississippi River Reaches Record High



There's a reason they call it the "Mighty" Mississippi: As heavy rains pound the river's basin and drive water levels above their record heights, the mayor of Memphis has warned city residents to prepare for a possible "large-scale disaster." Officials have begun building sandbag buffers around the city and raised levees where water levels have climbed to dangerous heights. Thousands have evacuated the city, leaving their homes behind to live in tents and campers at higher grounds. One woman showed CBS News correspondent Mark Strassman photos of her submerged home north of Memphis. "What's next? We've never had anything like this. We've lost crops to the water. We've never lost a house," she said. Things haven't been worse since the Mississippi flood in 1927, the most destructive in U.S. history, after which engineers built a system of levees and reservoirs that protect some four million people today. But that system is certainly being tested. The river is expected to crest next Wednesday at 48 feet.

Mississippi State sweeps Vols, wins 5-2



In all, the Volunteers were 1-for-17 with runners on base and 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position on Sunday. They will return to the diamond at 7 p.m. on Tuesday to host the opener of a home-and-home midweek series against Middle Tennessee State. UT will travel to Murfreesboro on Wednesday.

“Our kids played hard,” UT Head Coach Todd Raleigh said. “As a coach, that’s all you can ask for. I thought we put ourselves in a position to win. I’m proud of the way they played. I thought we were ready. We just needed that one hit to clear the bases. (Mississippi State) made a great play with two outs in the sixth, but we have to overcome that. We just try to keep teaching and helping them learn the game as much as we possibly can. It’s not like they aren’t trying. They are playing hard. You saw (Khayyan) diving all over the field and our pitchers were battling out there. We never gave up. We had a chance even at the end with the tying run (at the plate) in the ninth.”

Senior Khayyan Norfork and junior Davis Morgan each had a pair of hits for the Big Orange, while senior Matt Duffy added his 11th double of the season. Senior Rob Catapano (2-5) suffered the loss for the Vols after battling through 4.2 innings in which he allowed three runs on four hits and five walks. Chris Stratton (5-5) picked up the win for the Bulldogs, striking out nine and yielding two runs on six hits in 5.2 frames of work. Caleb Reed recorded his ninth save with 3.1 scoreless innings and five strikeouts out of the bullpen.

No. 7 Georgia powers past Mississippi State



Seventh-ranked Georgia hit four, two-out home runs en route to defeating Mississippi State, 10-2, in five innings on Sunday afternoon in front of a Jack Turner Stadium crowd of 1,311.

JJunior Brittney Hubbard (3-for-3) provided Georgia (44-10, 17-9 Southeastern Conference) with two of the four home runs, a solo shot in the second and two-run blast in the third. Two batters before Hubbard’s two-run homer, junior Ashley Razey drilled a three-run homer. The fourth home run of the game for UGA was also of the two-run variety off of the bat of senior Brianna Hesson (2-for-3) in the fourth. All four home runs were to left field and all four came with two outs.

Sunday’s win over Mississippi State (24-31, 10-18 SEC) provided Georgia with the series victory two games to one. MSU won the opener on Friday 8-6, but UGA took game two on Saturday, 4-3, before winning the finale.

The series with MSU also concluded regular season SEC play for UGA, who clinched the No. 5 seed in the SEC Tournament set for May 12-14 in Oxford, Miss. Georgia’s first game in the league tournament will come against fourth-seeded LSU on Thursday at 5 p.m. ET.

In Sunday’s victory, Hubbard’s solo home run in the second gave UGA a 1-0 lead. However, in the top of the third, Mississippi State’s Briana Bell was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to tie the game at 1-1.

Georgia quickly rebounded with five runs in the third to regain the lead at 6-1. With senior Megan Wiggins and Hesson aboard on a walk and a single, respectively, Razey clubbed her 11th home run of the season. Two batters later after junior Kristyn Sandberg was hit by a pitch, Hubbard’s two-run blast went out over the scoreboard in left and ended the game for MSU starter Stephanie Becker, who took the loss to fall to 7-10. For Hubbard, the two home runs were her fifth and sixth of the year.

Merhaba Genç Kalmak İsteyen Arkadaşla



Bu gün sizlerle nasıl genç kalınacağı ve yaşlanmayı gecirtirmeye yarayan bir yazımı sunacağım. Bunları deneyenlerin görüşlerini aldım ve kendilerini genç hissettiklerini belirtiyorlar…

Cilt yaşlanmasında etkili bir elaman olan güneş ışınları, beslenme alışkanlıkları, derinin dış fiziksel ve kimyasal uyarılara fazla maruz kalması, sigara kullanımı, fazla alkol tüketiminin yaşlanmayı ve beraberinde gelişen yaşlılık belirtilerini artırabildiği, bu etkilerden kaçınılmasının yaşlanmayı yavaşlatacağı uzmanlar tarafından tavsiye ediliyor.

Amerikan Hastanesi Dermatoloji Bölümü’nden Dr. Buket Pençe, “En büyük organ olan deri de diğer organlarla birlikte 20 yaşından itibaren yaşlanmaya başlar” diye söylüyorlar.

Japan's Akira Kurosawa has influenced other moviemakers for decades



How do you know when you have stumbled into a dangerous part of town? A few broken windows? Stares from unfriendly locals, perhaps? How about seeing a dog carrying a severed human hand? That was the way the Japanese auteur, Akira Kurosawa, chose to warn us that his protagonist was entering a lawless and violent place in the opening minutes of Yojimbo (Bodyguard).

The black-and-white classic, which turned 50 last week, sees a ronin (masterless samurai, played to perfection by the Kurosawa regular Toshiro Mifune) offering his services to two rival crime bosses in the feudal village. Rather than fulfilling his role as faithful servant, however, he becomes "the bodyguard who kills the bodies he's hired to guard," as the renowned film critic Pauline Kael once put it.

Constantly twitching and chewing on a toothpick, the roving sword-for-hire clearly enjoys dispatching his foes and accomplishes his aim with overwhelming zeal. Before long, he brings the whole rotten edifice crashing to the ground with his wily double-crossings.

While pets snacking on their masters' appendages and samurai sword fights aplenty might suggest the film would be best reserved for fans of gore, most of Yojimbo's violence actually happens off-screen and the movie is intended as a black comedy.

Although not as revolutionary as Kurosawa's breakout movie, 1950's Rashomon, and not as widely loved as the sweeping 1954 film, Seven Samurai, Yojimbo saw the director at his genre-bending finest and provided a story that would continue to resonate in international cinema for decades.
