Wes Sims and Bobby Ashley

Bobby Lashley dominated an overmatched Wes Sims, stopping him via strikes midway through the first round of their heavyweight showdown. Lashley easily took the fight to the ground, where he controlled Sims and battered him with punches from within the big man’s guard.

After a rapid-fire series of right hands forced Sims to turn his back, Lashley finished the job by flattening him out and pounding away until referee Troy Waugh saw fit to end the carnage 2 minutes, 6 seconds into the first round.

Cristiane Santos
 

Strikeforce women’s lightweight champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos stopped a game but overmatched Marloes Coenen in the third round of their title match, as she defended her crown for the first time.

Santos was in command throughout the bout, stopping all of her opponent’s takedowns and negating her perceived grappling advantage.

Coenen told reporters she would be more than happy to stand and trade with the champion, and she lived up to her promise. She delivered a number of clean, crisp punches, including a number of lead left hands, but Santos walked right through them. The difference in physicality and punching power was the deciding factor in the fight.

Santos employed a powerful striking game, on the feet and on the ground, and eventually wore down Coenen. The end came in the third round, when Santos took up dominant position after a weary Coenen pulled guard. She pounded away with punches until referee Jorge Ortiz rescued the Dutch fighter. The end came 3 minutes, 40 seconds into the first round.

“I’m very happy,” Santos said. “I prepared myself very much. I trained a lot.”

Santos admitted Coenen was probably her toughest test to date.

Finally some moderately good press for the guy — sorta!

Kanye West and his manager Don Crowley were charged with vandalism, battery and grand theft after smashing the camera equipment of two paparazzi at LAX back in September 2008.

The judge told both of them in October 2008 that the case would be dropped if they each showed proof of 50 hours of community service and agreed to enroll in an anger management class.

‘Nye’s and Crowley’s attorneys provided the proof that they both worked for 50 hours at the Red Cross and now they’re cleared.

And a good cause profited from the situation as well!

He and three other men — including a 24-year-old associate, Joseph Basel, who was interviewed alongside Mr. O’Keefe by the Web site — were arrested and charged with a federal felony, accused of seeking to tamper with the office telephone system of Senator Mary L. Landrieu. Two of them were impersonating repairmen in the senator’s New Orleans office and were caught after being asked for identification.

Mr. O’Keefe said Friday that the four men had been trying to determine whether Ms. Landrieu was avoiding constituent complaints about the Senate health care bill after her phone system was jammed in December. (Her office said no calls had been intentionally avoided.) On reflection, he said in a statement, “I could have used a different approach to this investigation.”

Diving legend Greg Louganis has never backed away from a challenge.

These days Louganis — who turns 50 today — is healthy, happy and ready for another kind of challenge: “I want to be on Dancing with the Stars,” he tells PEOPLE. “It would be such a blast.”

Living in Malibu, Calif., with partner Daniel McSwiney, 46, his passion for diving has been replaced by his love of his dogs, whom he trains for agility competitions.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is dedicated to bringing innovations in health and learning to the global community.
January 29, 2010 11:05 a.m. EST

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Bill and Melinda Gates announced plans Friday to donate $10 billion
  • Ten-year program will focus on vaccines for AIDS, tuberculosis, rota virus and pneumonia
  • The pledge is the largest financial commitment their charitable foundation has made
  • Bill and Melinda Gates announced plans Friday to invest $10 billion in the fight against a number of illnesses including AIDS and said the record donation could save nearly nine million lives.  Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, they said the 10-year program will focus on vaccines for AIDS, tuberculosis, rota virus and pneumonia.

    “We must make this the decade of vaccines,” said Bill Gates.

    Since stepping down as chief executive officer of Microsoft in mid-2008, Bill Gates has devoted most of his time to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a philanthropic organization he set up with his wife Melinda.

    The foundation directs most of its attention to global health, education and agriculture in the third world and has committed more than $21 billion since it was established in 1994.

    The $10 billion commitment is the largest pledge ever made by a charitable foundation to a single cause, according to The Chronicle of Philanthropy, a newspaper covering nonprofit organizations.

    “Vaccines are a miracle,” added Melinda Gates. “With just a few doses, they can prevent deadly diseases for a lifetime. We’ve made vaccines our priority at the Gates Foundation because we’ve seen firsthand their incredible impact on children’s lives.”

    Bill Gates was born on October 28th, 1955 at 10 p.m. in the Washington (PST) time zone.

    Ruben Kruger was named South African Player of the Year in 1995 -- the year the Springboks won the World Cup.

    Former South African rugby World Cup winner Ruben Kruger has passed away following a long battle with brain cancer.

    The ex-Cheetahs and Bulls flanker was first diagnosed with the illness during the early 2000s at the end of a successful career that saw him earn 36 Springboks caps.

    Kruger, who was just two months short of his 40th birthday, made his debut against Argentina in Buenos Aires during 1993 and was named South African Rugby Player of the Year in 1995 — the year the country lifted the World Cup.

    “Ruben Kruger was the epitome of the Springbok flanker, tough, indomitable and with an outstanding work ethic,” Oregan Hoskins, president of the South African Rugby Union (SARU), told reporters.

    “When Ruben was on the field you always knew that the Springboks would not be beaten without a tremendous battle.

    “Our prayers have been with him through his battles against illness and it is very sad to hear of his early passing. Our thoughts are with his young family and we extend to them our sincerest condolences.”

    With all of the rumors, scandalous photos, CGI animated fight scenes and remixes of Tiger Woods’s alleged voicemail message, the golfer still came out on top of Bloomberg BusinessWeek’s 2010 list of the 100 most powerful athletes.

    The reason: Woods dominated on the green in 2009, and as a result has become the king of endorsements like few others have. He’s been the face of Accenture, American Express, Nike and Gillette, and the total of those deals made him $92 million last year, according to the magazine. His total earnings for the year came in at $103 million, and Woods was expected to become the first athlete to earn $1 billion in career earnings before the car crash over the Thanksgiving holiday.

    BusinessWeek teamed up with CSE, an integrated and entertainment company, plus two media sports fanatics, Rick Horrow of “The $ports Take” and VP of Horrow Sports Ventures Karla Swatek, to crunch the numbers on “who was making the greatest holistic impact on sports.”

    They ranked players in accordance to his or her peers in their respective sport over a two-year period, looking at criteria such as money earned and points scored in that time frame, and then adjusted the ranking depending on the popularity of the athlete as well as the sport overall.

    The math gets even more complicated with CSE also calculating “off-field” power, which added up total endorsement income plus the opinions of the public on an athlete’s trustworthiness, appeal, influence and awareness. And yes, after all of that, Woods was the clear winner, followed by LeBron James and Phil Mickelson.

    Even if the rumors of Woods’s infidelity had arrived earlier in the year, CSE’s data shows that he still would have been the most powerful athlete of the year.

    David Hyde Pierce is probably best known for his Emmy-winning role as Dr. Niles Crane, the uptight brother on the long-running sitcom, “Frasier.” So it shouldn’t be a surprise that his character in his first feature film-starring role in the psychological thriller “The Perfect Host,” starts out as very Niles-like.

    The movie is still looking for distribution at Sundance, but has been gathering a following, especially among industry folks hungry for the creepier fare of thrillers and horror movies, like “Paranormal Activity” that came of out the film festival last year to make bug bucks at the box office.

    Kiefer Sutherland invested $869,000 in cattle a few years ago – but it turns out the deal was a bunch of bull.

    The 24 star is one of several victims of Michael Wayne Carr, a competitive steer-roping promoter and cattle manager, who allegedly bilked investors of hundreds of thousands of dollars, the San Joaquin County, Calif., District Attorney’s office contends.

    Sutherland was told by a financial advisor that Carr would buy cattle from Mexico and resell them at a huge profit in the U.S. The actor never personally met Carr, who has no prior criminal record. The DA’s office says there’s no evidence the purchase ever took place. A New Mexico couple who lost $177,000 was also duped with the same story, and a Colorado man lost cattle that was entrusted to Carr, who allegedly sold them, according to prosecutors.
    “Mr. Sutherland has been very friendly and helpful with our investigation,” Deputy District Attorney Stephen Maier tells PEOPLE. “I’m sure he’s happy someone’s getting to the bottom of this.”

    Tilda Swinton Up for Playing Conan O'Brien on Film 

    Ask for Tilda Swinton and ye shall receive.

    After the late-night time-slot shuffle on NBC that ultimately led to Tonight Show host Conan O’Brien’s exit from the network, the comedian joked in his final monologue that he wanted the fiery-haired actress to play him if HBO decided to make a movie about his life.

    And Swinton has agreed, saying she would take on the role with relish if it ever happened.

    “I would just be only too happy,” Swinton told Movieline.com at the Sundance Film Festival, where she is promoting I Am Love. “Yes, yes, yes, absolutely.”

    What the 49-year-old actress would like even more is a sort of Freaky Friday situation, where she and O’Brien switch places.

    Tennis:  Murray into semis

    “I came through a few tough moments at the start of the match but I thought I found the right tactics to win, I played really well tonight.”

    Murray’s victory sets-up a semifinal clash with Croatian Marin Cilic, who underlined his growing reputation by hitting 20 aces and 63 winners to consign seventh seed Andy Roddick to defeat.

    A win that has Murray keenly anticipating his next challenge: “Nerves will be there about making my first Australian final but I lost to [Cilic] in straight sets at the U.S. Open so there is a bit of revenge to be had there.”

    from:  http://edition.cnn.com/2010/SPORT/01/26/tennis.australia.cilic.roddick.nadal.murray/index.html

    Britain’s Andy Murray came from a set down to see off the bold challenge of Croatian outsider Marin Cilic to reach the final of the Australian Open with a 3-6 6-4 6-4 6-2 victory in Melbourne on Thursday night.

    It was sweet revenge for the 22-year-old, who was beaten by Cilic in a shock fourth round reverse at last year’s U.S. Open.

    Jenn Lyon's Impact on Survivor Ethan Zohn 
    “I think Ethan and Jenn became strong allies for each other as they both battled their cancer,” says series host Jeff Probst. “Ethan was there for Jenn at times when she really needed to talk to someone who could understand the struggle on a level the rest of us just couldn’t. Ethan is such a strong willed and inspiring person; their friendship offered a lot of comfort to Jenn.”

    Such was the pair’s camaraderie that “towards the end, when Jenn would be at long treatments or was too tired to talk,” says friend and Palau contestant Coby Archa, “she would still find the energy to show me all the powerful texts that Ethan would send to her, beautiful poems and encouragement for her to fight as a warrior against this thing called cancer. She always found strength in Ethan, and I know he did the same of her.”

    Says Morasca, “I know Ethan has been reluctant to speak about what they shared because it is deeper than what any of us could share. They are the only people that understand. I feel that they were fueling each other’s fire.”

    Meet Brennan LaBrie, World's Youngest Olympics Reporter

    Brennan LaBrie is much like any other seasoned journalist descending on Vancouver for the Winter Olympics.

    He runs a successful newspaper in his hometown of Port Townsend, Wash. He’s found a national audience as a blogger for a major media outlet. And he’s interviewed Apolo Ohno, among other star athletes, in the run-up to next month’s Games.

    The difference? Brennan is 10 years old.

    It figures to be a busy few weeks for LaBrie. Asked what he’ll do when the Olympics are over, he replies: “Probably take a nap.”

    Al Hassan al-Majeed, known as "Chemical Ali," was convicted of killings and genocide.
    Saddam Hussein’s cousin Ali Hassan al-Majeed — also known as Chemical Ali — was executed Monday, an Iraqi government spokesman said.He was hanged after having been convicted on 13 counts of killings and genocide, Ali al-Dabagh said.

    Al-Majeed had been sentenced to death in four separate trials, including one that focused on his involvement in a poison gas attack against Iraqi Kurds that killed about 5,000 people.

    His execution had been delayed for political rather than legal reasons. It is not clear what change, if any, led to the reported execution.

    Al-Majeed had been held in United States custody since his capture in 2003. But he was handed over to the Iraqi authorities in the 24 hours before his execution, U.S. Ambassador Christopher Hill told CNN’s Diana Magnay on Monday.

    Favre: Not ready to decide yet

    Portrait of Barack Obama

     

    The White House rejected criticism Sunday that President Obama has not delivered on his promise of “change” during his first year in office.

    White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said the president has brought about “enormous change.”

    “I think what we’ve seen is a dramatic difference in terms of how the United States is perceived around the world,” Jarrett told NBC’s “Meet the Press,” on the final Sunday before the president’s State of the Union address.

    Obama‘s travels have established relationships with world leaders that “lay a foundation for keeping America safe and making us a partner around the world,” she added.

    Jarrett also credited the president with having “pulled back the economy from the brink of disaster.”

    “That’s an enormous amount of change when you consider where we were a year ago right on the brink,” she said. “And he’s adding discipline in government to try to get control over our fiscal house. So I think that we’ve seen enormous change.”

    “I already directed her in the first episode,” said co-creator Brad Falchuk. “She did two small scenes with Matt [Morrison], so we’ve started kind of easing her into it. She was great. I don’t come from a musical background so I wasn’t that familiar with her. … She was fun to work with, fun to direct.”

    Oh, but it gets better!

    “She and Matt had an immediate chemistry. … Her first scene — literally it was ‘Welcome aboard,’ and they had a big makeout scene. So it was interesting for her. It was like, welcome to the show,” he continued.

    All My Children star James Mitchell, who played Palmer Cortlandt, dies at 89

    from:  http://www.people.com/people/news/0,,,00.html

    James Mitchell was an American actor and dancer. Although he is best-known to television audiences as Palmer Cortlandt on the soap opera All My Children (1979 – 2009), theatre and dance historians remember him as one of Agnes de Mille‘s leading dancers. Mitchell’s skill at combining dance and acting was considered something of a novelty; in 1959, the critic Olga Maynard singled him out as “an important example of the new dancer-actor-singer in American ballet”, pointing to his interpretive abilities and “masculine” technique.

    Throngs of mourners turned out for a funeral Mass on Saturday for the archbishop of Port-au-Prince, whose body was pulled from ruins near the national cathedral after the massive earthquake in Haiti.

    When the service ended, the body of 63-year-old Monsignor Joseph Serge Miot was taken to Lilavois Cemetery for burial.

    Haitian President Rene Preval attended the Roman Catholic Mass.

    “He was a good man,” Preval told CNN.

    During the funeral, mourners, most of them clergy, lined up to pay their respects to the archbishop, who was laid in an open white casket. There were injuries to his face.

    Friends called Miot, who became archbishop in the capital in March 2008, a humble man who was well-liked.

    The roof of the historic Roman Catholic cathedral caved in during the earthquake, leaving the interior and entrance full of rubble and shattering the stained-glass windows.

    The archdiocese’s offices and Miot’s residence were destroyed in the earthquake, and a Mexican rescue crew found Miot dead in the ruins two days later.

    Portrait of Barack Obama

    Offering his most extensive public comments about the election debacle in Massachusetts, President Obama acknowledged that he’s taking some lumps but also trying to cast himself as a populist who will “never stop fighting” to bring health care reform and jobs to communities like this hard-hit manufacturing area outside Cleveland.

    Now, we’ve gotten pretty far down the road, but I have to admit, we’ve run into a bit of a buzzsaw along the way,” Obama said. “The long process of getting things done runs headlong into the special interests, their armies of lobbyists and partisan politics aimed at exploiting fears instead of getting things done.”

    Obama added, “I am not going to walk away just because it’s hard. We’re going to keep on working to get this done with Democrats, Republicans, anyone who is willing to step up.

    Flight engineer T.J. Creamer, of NASA Expedition 22 aboard the International Space Station, posted a tweet at approximately 3:38 a.m. EST Friday. It was the first ever to be posted directly to Twitter from somewhere other than planet Earth.

    “Hello Twitterverse!,” wrote Creamer, under the Twitter user name Astro_TJ. “We r now LIVE tweeting from the International Space Station—the 1st live tweet from Space! ,” Creamer said.

    “More soon, send your ?s,” added Creamer, who had more than 5,000 followers as of Friday afternoon.

    NASA astronauts have posted updates on Twitter in the past, but they first had to be relayed to Mission Control. Now, residents of the ISS can post directly to the micro-blogging site thanks to a new, direct Internet connection.

    Dubbed the Crew Support LAN, the system relies on existing communication links to give astronauts full Web connectivity. The crew also has access to e-mail, VoIP, and videoconferencing tools.

    The 35-year-old comedian was brought into NBC’s late-night fold last March to take over O’Brien’s former post on “Late Night.” Throughout the entire late-night battle at NBC, Fallon remained the silent new kid, keeping quiet even though the proposed negotiations affected his show as well. NBC originally devised a scheme that would place “The Jay Leno Show” at 11:35 p.m. for a half hour, to be followed by “The Tonight Show” at 12:05, which would knock Fallon back to 1:05, a move that could have put a deep gash in the newcomer’s ratings.

    “He was wise to stay out of it, and he didn’t have much of a choice I don’t think. He’s a small fish at NBC,” said Slantmagazine.com’s TV editor Sal Cinquemani. “He’s like a little brother watching his siblings fight with his parents and to keep quiet was the classy thing to do.”

    Her power square (ages 27 to 54) = 4 (D) + 1 (A) + 12 (L (starting over with the first letter in her first name)) + 24 (born on  the 24th of the month) = 41 = Melting your heart.  Stirrings of the heart…Significant difference in age between you and your significant other.

    Bristol Palin is demanding Levi Johnston start paying up.

    According to court documents filed Thursday in Alaska and posted on the Web site TMZ, the 19 year-old daughter of Sarah Palin is demanding the father of her one year-old son pay $1,750 a month in child support payments.

    Palin is also seeking back payments beginning from late December 2008, when the child was born.

    According to the court filing, Palin says Johnston made “in excess of 105,000 in 2009 through various media interviews and modeling related activities.”

    Palin also says she has received only “sporadic financial assistance” from Johnston over the last year – $4,400 in total.

    Johnston’s manager contends Palin has been paid more than $10,000 by Johnston since her son was born, according to TMZ.

    California’s parole board has denied parole for Elisabeth “Betty” Broderick, the once socially prominent lawyer’s wife who fatally shot him and his new wife in bed in 1989.

    When Broderick’s husband of 16 years dumped her for his young legal assistant, she seethed with a white-hot fury.

    She was one angry Betty, as a California writer, a long-time Broderick watcher, recently observed.

    She still is, the parole board concluded Thursday after hearing Broderick’s rambling statement, said San Diego Deputy District Attorney Richard Sachs.

    “She was totally not remorseful, didn’t even try,” Sachs said. Broderick won’t be eligible for another parole hearing for 15 years — the maximum time the law allows, he added.

    Air America Radio was born at noon, eastern time, on Mar. 31, 2004, and on that first show the host, Al Franken, proclaimed his first mission: to defeat George W. Bush in that year’s presidential election. It died a year and a day after Barack Obama’s Inauguration, and two days after Obama’s Democrats all but officially became a minority party in the U.S. Senate. The liberal radio network — which provided Franken, the ex-Saturday Night Live comedian, with a conduit to his own Senate seat, and gave the first significant exposure to MSNBC darling Rachel Maddow — expired nine weeks short of its sixth birthday, after waging a heroic battle against advertiser indifference and listener apathy.

    “It is with the greatest regret, on behalf of our Board, that we must announce that Air America Media is ceasing its live programming operations as of this afternoon,” the network announced on its web site this afternoon, “and that the Company will file soon under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code to carry out an orderly winding-down of the business.” Live programming ended on Thursday at 6 p.m.; reruns will continue, the statement read, “until 9 p.m. EST on Monday, January 25, at which time Air America programming will end.”

    Last year’s breakout hit was “Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire,” winner of both the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award. It went on to score big at the box office, picked up an Golden Globe last week and has been tipped for Oscar success in March.

    Speaking from his home in California’s Napa Valley, Redford demurs from predicting what films will break out at this year’s festival, which starts Thursday.

    He does so out of fairness to the filmmakers and also because “I can get clobbered,” he said, if something doesn’t happen as forecast.

    “But the fact is that there’s new distribution on the horizon, and that’s the Internet.”

    Films are already being self-distributed online, and while it may be difficult now, it will become easier for filmmakers in the future, he said.

    Backing for independent filmmakers comes and goes, said Redford. “There is no constant support for independent film. It’s evanescent.”
