British-born author Christopher Hitchens on Wednesday cut short a book tour to undergo chemotherapy, which several media outlets reported was because the heavy smoker has been diagnosed with cancer.”I have been advised by my physician that I must undergo a course of chemotherapy on my esophagus. This advice seems persuasive to me. I regret having had to cancel so many engagements at such short notice,” Hitchens, 61, said in a statement released through his publishers Twelve.

A representative for the publisher offered no details beyond the statement.

Hitchens, known to be a heavy smoker, launched a book tour last month to promote his memoir “Hitch 22” which tackles subjects ranging from the Middle East and Zimbabwe to his friendships with prominent writers including Salman Rushdie and Martin Amis.

As a journalist, critic and war correspondent, Hitchens has carved out a reputation for barbed repartee, scathing critiques of public figures and a fierce intelligence.

In his 2008 book “God Is Not Great”, Hitchens put himself on a collision course with major religions with his trenchant atheist views.

Hitchens was born in Britain, lives in Washington D.C., and retained his British citizenship when he also became an American citizen in 2007.

Aamir Khan joins Twitter
Agencies
Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Bollywood’s illustrious fraternity on Twitter just grew bigger. After Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh and Salman Khan, it is now Aamir Khan’s turn to join the micro-blogging site.

It is a measure of his immense popularity that the 3 Idiots star, whose first tweet from his handle aamir_khan reads ‘Testing. Aamir.’, has already acquired 29,166 followers in the space of nine hours.

Filmmaker Karan Johar was one of the first to welcome the actor to the community and tweeted “@aamir_khan on twitterverse people!!!”. Amitabh Bachchan, who reportedly convinced Aamir to take the plunge, was also quick to extend greetings. “You have been tried and tested! Welcome, and thank you for agreeing to twitter! Now handle it brother! There will be MADNESS!!” read Big B’s tweet.

Aamir has in fact joined the Twitter community a day earlier than expected. “Aamir will be on Twitter from July 1. He was not on Twitter till now because he thought he won’t be able to give enough time to it. But since Mr.Bachchan insisted on him joining it, he gave it another thought and has decided to join it. He cannot say no to Mr.Bachchan,” a source close to the actor was quoted as saying.

Aamir met Amitabh and his actress-politician wife Jaya over a casual dinner in London some time back and Amitabh started persuading him to join the site. He even taught him how to send Tweets through his phone.

Having made a late entry, it remains to be seen if and when Aamir overtakes Twitter veterans like Amitabh and Shah Rukh who have 207,690 and 484,464 followers respectively.

Christian Cunningham, the 2 1/2 year-old son of former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham, died after drowning in a hot tub in his backyard.

Cunningham, a former star at UNLV and now a pastor in Las Vegas, performs baptisms in the hot tub.

Reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

A woman at Cunningham’s house was with several children when she found the boy at about 4:30 p.m., Las Vegas police Lt. Dennis Flynn said. She removed the boy from the hot tub and began performing CPR. Paramedics took the child to St. Rose Dominican Hospital, Siena campus, where he died, Flynn said.

Abuse and neglect detectives were investigating the incident at the house on the 300 block of East Robindale Road, near Paradise Road. Flynn said the drowning appeared to be an accident.

Legendary hip-hop artist and graffiti artist Rammellzee has passed away, according to various Twitter accounts. An official confirmation is still pending and a cause of death is not yet known.

Born in 1960, Rammellzee was considered a pioneer in the hip hop community and his unique vocal style served as influence for a number of today’s artists. His resume was highlighted by “Beat Bop”, his legendary 1983 single with K-Rob, collaborations with Buckethead, and appearances in influential hip hop films Wild Style and Style Wars.

In addition to his work in the music community, Rammellzee was also an acclaimed graphic artist whose works were based on the theory of Gothic Futurism. According to Wikipedia, the theory “describes the battle between letters and their symbolic warfare against any standardizations enforced by the rules of the alphabet.”

I am by no means an authority on Rammellzee, so please read both The Daily Swarm and Passion of the Weiss for more insight on his life and impact. Also, below you can find a few videos illustrating the artist’s many talents.

It is a very sad news to the fans of Park Yong-ha. Just a few weeks before of his 33rd birthday, he has killed himself in his home at the South Korean capital Seoul. This untimely death will make millions of fans of this actor and singer very sad. The reason for his suicide is yet to be known. Park Yong ha was born on 12 August 1977 and he caught the attention of many people just at the age of 17 with the drama, Theme Theater in 1994. After that, he became very popular and worked in a number TV programs and movies. The year 2002 brought another huge success for Park Yong-ha with his acting in Winter Sonata that gained huge popularity not only in Korea but also in Japan. This TV drama also featured actress Choi Ji-woo. This untimely death would come at a shock to many people in East Asia. Park was supposed to act in a new drama called Love Song. Yoon Eun Hye was supposed act as the lead female role in the drama. Park received several awards in his 17 years of successful career. He was also almost equally successful as a singer. Suicide is a growing problem in South Korea among young people. It is already big problem in Japan. The suicide of Park Yong ha is perhaps a reminder that something should be done in both Korea and Japan to fight against this social problem.

Patel guilty over deaths
07:54, Wednesday June 30, 2010
Former Bundaberg surgeon Jayant Patel has spent his first night in jail after being convicted of killing three patients and permanently injuring a fourth.
The 60-year-old had pleaded not guilty to the manslaughter of Mervyn Morris, Gerry Kemps and James Phillips, and the grievous bodily harm of Ian Vowels.
But after 50 hours of deliberations a Brisbane Supreme Court jury found him guilty last night of all four charges relating to his stint as director of surgery at Bundaberg hospital from 2003 to 2005.
The victims’ families and former patients say the verdicts bring closure even before Patel’s sentenced tomorrow.
Mr Kemps’ wife Judy says it’s been a long five years but she finally feels free.
Former Patel patient and patient advocate Beryl Crosby says Patel’s been found guilty and it doesn’t matter what happens from here.
