But, when Ms Neve, 31, got in the hospital bed to give Charlotte her final cuddle, Adele's 'Rolling in the Deep' came on the radio – a song the pair used to sing together. Ms Neve started singing it to her daughter – and Charlotte began to smile – astounding doctors."

RoadShiba Russell is Sue Simmons' replacement: "Russell’s quick ascent into the co-anchor slot, which was widely predicted from the time WNBC hired her in February 2011, gives the 11 o’clock news a swift and clean makeover. It replaces the 69-year-old Simmons with a woman closer to half her age — and who reminds some viewers of a younger Simmons."

    The Shia LaBeouf commentary is a bit puerile. I’m glad you’re drawing attention to a beautiful work of art and the music of a great band, but for chirssake, grow up.

    “Why doesn’t it just go already?”

    Come on, AB, you obviously know where the exact edge of the heliosheath is, right? Why don’t you give NASA a call?

    “Up and coming” artist? How about “soon to be prosecuted and jailed” artist. How he enjoys his 2 seconds of “fame”.

    Seeing how dorky and precocious Ryan Gosling was pre-MMC makes me love his adult self all the more. Oh how I’d love to see him dancing like that now! lol

  4. Steven G McGrew says

    By sharing the Landeros video of his destruction of art….you agree with this action. Doing what he did to another artist work is just like the Catholic Churches taking Greek And Roman Statues and removing their cock and balls…..destruction of artwork is nothing to be celebrated.

    @steven mcgrew
    how in the world does reporting an action equate as condoning it?

    by your reasoning, if someone reports on a murder it must mean they’re agreeing with that action

    if someone does a report on corporate crime it must mean they’re condoning it.

    years ago when i was in a literature class we read a story that touched on the topic of racism. there was one woman in the class who insisted that since the story described racism, it had to be racist.

    your line of thinking reflects that of the woman who was in my literature class.

  6. says

    Henry — Is it really important for the average human to know where the exact edge of the heliosheath is? Compared to the condition of reactor 4 at Fukushima it doesn’t even register.

    But maybe Voyager 1 will get “there” on December 21st and pop the heliosheath, bringing about the Mayan end-of-the-world prophesy. Now THAT would be newsworthy, but two years on we’d be reading “World Still Ending” articles.

    1. Madonna, what’s the point of making a video for a song that no one wants to hear? The album is already in the dollar bin and all singles from the album have tanked. Why waste the money?

    2. Voyager is traveling 1 million miles a day. Seems like a lot, but we’re talking huge, huge distances here. The fact that it is not clearly out of the confines of the solar system is what makes the mission still interesting–how big is the space that defines our solar system? What is the shape? All questions that these space craft will help us understand. Also, the shot you have is out of date. There is no bow shock. I guess the source materials need to be updated to reflect that as it turns out the solar system is moving less rapidly in relation to the surrounding space than once thought.

    3. Joe MMMMMMMMM.

    4. I have no idea what that sigur ros video means, but I never want to see (not so shy) shia nekkid again.

    Anastasia: the first human object to ever go into intersteller space is not worthy of your attention? It would have to bring about the end of the world for you to think it was important? You seem pretty shallow and egocentric in your areas of interest. Yes it is important to find out things we know nothing about, it’s called learning and leads us to all sorts of places. Sorry for the bitchy post but really, the self imposed ignorance some people they try to convince the rest of the world as enlightenment is exasperating to say the least.

  9. MarkUs says

    Is it going to be a trend for “up and coming artists” to destroy famous works in museums? I guess we need to cheer the 99% against the 1% or something.

    Re: rainbow needle: My doctor uses a butterfly needle. Why would anyone take multiple samples with multiple needles? If he’s really a doctor, he would know about the butterfly. *confused
