Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Shia LeBouf get some screen time in the new Transformers 3 trailer, but the monstrous machines are clearly the stars as they spring from the moon to earth and trash the city of Chicago.

The clip suggests the movie will be non-stop action with lots of special effects and a sprinkling of human stars to fill in the narrative.

In a controversial move, Huntington-Whiteley replaced screen siren Megan Fox, after the latter had a falling out with director Michael Bay.

Judging from the trailer, Rosie will play damsel in distress, but also looks like she’ll have some meaty action parts as well.

She plays Shia’s loves interest.

LaBeouf reprises his role as Sam Witwicky in what’s supposed to be the ultimate battle between good and evil, as Optimus Prime and the Autobots take on the Decepticons.

The clip, which sets up the movie, shows an army of Decepticons racing to discover the secret of a Cybertronian spacecraft that crashes on the Moon

Chicago’s landmark financial district takes a pounding as the hugh machines trash whole skyscrapers and toss cars around like toys.

The action film is the third and reportedly last in the blockbuster series. It debuts in July. Watch the trailer below.

Top Moneymakers in Music 2010

#5  Justin Bieber   $22,492,565

“Teen pop star” isn’t a bad gig to have, it turns out — especially when said teen pop star establishes himself as an arena tour headliner on his first run. Justin Bieber sold 3.7 million albums in 2010, with the bulk of those sales coming from his March release, “My World 2.0,” and the rest from continued purchases of his 2009 “My World” debut and a holiday-timed repackaging titled “My Worlds Acoustic.” The 16-year-old singer’s track sales are twice as high, totaling 7.6 million and most likely buoyed by his single “Baby,” which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100. In all, Bieber reaped about $7.4 million in royalties from sales of his music. Then there was the My World arena tour, which grossed $40.6 million and netted Bieber about $13.7 million.

Future star: Baerke van der Meij poses with a football that is half the size of him

27th April, 2011

Rising football star Baerke van der Meij, aged one, is signed by club

Toddler Baerke van der Meij has been signed up to a Dutch football team after winning YouTube fame following a quick kickabout against his toybox.

The talented tot shot to fame after his father Jorg posted a clip on YouTube of him curling three balls into his toybox in quick succession.

It received more than 1million hits and an offer from Dutch team Venlose Voetbal Vereniging, who play in the premier Eredivisie league.

The 18-month old joined VVV’s star midfielder Ken Leemans for his first ‘trial’ session at the team’s De Koel  stadium before he was offered the symbolic  contract, which is  normally valid for ten years, after just an hour.

Baerke’s grandfather once played professionally for the club and his family remain fans.

The young goalscorer has already been compared with Dutch greats (Pictures: YouTube)

With a little help from his father, the diminutive forward put crayon to paper and sealed the deal.

He then posed for pictures standing on the desk wearing a miniature replica shirt. Online commentators have  already compared him with national stars such as Denis Bergkamp and  Arjen Robben.

The contract was celebrated at the  stadium with a glass of orange juice, and the club said, while their potential future star’s vocabulary was still limited, one word was enough – ‘bal’.

‘The toddler’s favourite position has not yet been determined,’ the club said in a statement.

‘However, we can speak of a right-footed player with a very good kicking technique, perseverance and, importantly, football genes via his grandfather.

 
—————————————————————————————– 

A Dutch football club has “signed up” a toddler who shot to fame when he was filmed shooting three balls into his toy box.

Video of Baerke van der Meij’s feat was posted by his father Jorg on YouTube.

VVV, his home club in Venlo, offered him a symbolic 10-year contract.

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 0 to 27 are ruled by the sum of the first three letters of the name.

Baerke van der Meij

2 (B is the 2nd letter of the alphabet) + 1 (a is the first letter of the alphabet) + 5 (e is the 5th letter of the alphabet) = 8

So from ages zero to twenty-seven he has the number 8 going on.

8 = Discipline.  Grounded.  Practical.  Pragmatic.  Strength.  Power.  Control.  Business.  Status.  Recognition.  Prestige.  Prominence.  Business sense.  Foundation.  Structure.  Solid.  Sturdy.  Concrete.  Tangible.  Regimented.

File:Ben Bernanke official portrait.jpg

April 27, 2011 

Westminster Abbey and the Royal Wedding are so overhyped; the historic story of the week will take place on C Street in Washington, D.C. today.

At 2:15 p.m. ET, Ben Bernanke, chairman of the Federal Reserve, will make waves in the world of economists and Wall Streeters. For the first time in the 98-year history of the nation’s central bank, the chairman will talk to the press after an interest rate decision, fulfilling a promise he made at his first confirmation hearing back in 2005.

At the time he said, “Under Chairman Greenspan, monetary policy has become increasingly transparent to the public and the financial markets, a trend that I strongly support.”

Most Fed watchers don’t expect Bernanke to make any surprising observations about the economy. The Fed almost certainly won’t ratchet up interest rates or change the course of the widely-known QE2 program to boost economic recovery. Instead, Bernanke will likely take the podium to reinforce the post-meeting statement issued earlier in the afternoon and underline the observations the Federal Reserve’s staff economists make in their updated forecast issued as a part of the release.

But the importance of the moment shouldn’t be dismissed.

This event marks a new chapter in the history of U.S. central banking. The new transparency will allow the Federal Reserve to make its case for monetary policy directly to the public. Twenty-first century-style economic Glasnost.

The press conference, “whose ostensible purpose is to add more transparency regarding Fed policy, is really designed to help repair its image with the general public, a process that began when Bernanke first appeared on ’60 Minutes,'” writes Bernie Baumohl, chief economist at The Economic Outlook Group. “The press conference serves multiple purposes. It helps explain the Fed’s role in the economy, improves public trust in the central bank, and can be used discreetly as a platform to place more pressure on Congress to reduce the swelling budget deficits.”

Chairman Bernanke isn’t the first central banker to take the message to the press. His colleagues at the European Central Bank and Bank of England have been doing this for years. He’s likely taken some pointers about handling the press from Jean-Claude Trichet and Mervyn King, his European counterparts. It’s been reported that he’s even done a few practice runs with Fed staffers to prep for the big day.

At a moment when the Federal government’s deficits and debt limits are becoming the central issue of the nation’s political dialog, Bernanke’s press conference debut will give the Fed a more consistent voice and platform in the public sphere.

The lack of transparency during the financial crisis led to criticisms of the Federal Reserve’s role in the economy, with members of the conservative Tea Party movement calling for a dissolution of the Fed or a Congressionally-mandated opening up of the once-secretive central bank. Taking the podium might blunt some of the critics, assuming the public both hears and understands what Bernanke says.

No matter what the questions or answers, tomorrow marks a big day in the history of the Fed. Two decades ago, the Federal Reserve kept its interest rate decisions out of the public eye, not even issuing a press release when the Fed Funds rate target changed. Glasnost, indeed.

Though Prince William gets the fancy wedding watched by the world, the stunning bride, and the right to one day be crowned king, it is his brother, Prince Harry, who truly has the lifestyle envied by millions.

Harry, the self-styled playboy prince, has a public image as a dashing, debonair young man with good looks, a charming manner, and a status as undoubtedly one of the most eligible bachelors on the planet.

The question hopeful young women around the world are desperate to know is this: Is Harry single?

A few months back and the answer was a resounding “yes,” as Britain’s third in line to the throne reveled in the young-and-free lifestyle, being seen in the company of a series of stunning women and reportedly enjoying a fling with Norwegian pop starlet Camilla Romestrand. His confident persona, coupled with the fact that not too many women find a royal title a turn-off, meant there was no shortage of interest from the opposite sex.

However, it emerged recently that Harry’s on-off girlfriend Chelsy Davy will accompany him to William’s marriage to Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey on April 29, as well as two further private functions on the same day.

Chelsy, born and primarily raised in Zimbabwe, had looked very much like the one that got away. Royal insiders say she is the only woman ever to have truly captured Harry’s heart, and the pair dated from 2004 to 2009. In 2007 Harry was said to be so smitten as to be considering proposing marriage, sparking speculation that he could beat his older brother down the aisle.

However, Chelsy’s return to the scene does not automatically mean a full-blown reconciliation. The independent 25-year-old disliked the way she became paparazzi fodder during her relationship with Harry and came to be wary of life in London–preferring the quieter confines of her family’s home in South Africa. Earlier this year, however, she returned to accept a position at a London law firm, meaning she could be in the United Kingdom for the foreseeable future.

Either way, the Harry and Chelsy Show keeps the British papers on their toes, with several publications gleefully reporting that the pair had been smuggled away from a London club in the trunk of a royal vehicle to avoid detection earlier this year.

Whether or not it is accurate to once again refer to Davy as “Harry’s girlfriend,” she is certainly back in the picture, even having played a role in organizing a second bachelorette part for Middleton, along with the bride-to-be’s sister, Pippa.

If her presence is enough to steer Harry clear of the single scene remains to be seen. But if she can’t, perhaps no one can. Preferring to keep things close to his chest, Harry has spoken about Chelsy in public on only one occasion–but it was heartfelt and somewhat moving.

“She is very special,” he said, on his 21st birthday. “I would love to tell everyone how amazing she is. But, you know, that is my private life, and once I start talking about that, then I’ve left my own self open, and if anyone asks me in the future, then they’ll say, ‘Oh well hang on, you told them but why aren’t you telling us?'”

He has said nothing on the subject since, and is not about to break that habit in the weeks leading up to his brother’s wedding. And so the most intriguing question surrounding the royal family is still yet to be answered.

Admission: Evan Rachel Wood reveals she is bisexual in a new interview for Esquire magazine

April 19th, 2011  2:23 PM

It seems to be a case of life imitating art for Evan Rachel Wood.

The 23-year-old actress, who plays lesbian vampire queen Sophie-Anne in TV hit True Blood, has admitted she dates women in real life too. 

‘I’m up for anything. Meet a nice guy, meet a nice girl,’ she tells Esquire magazine in a new interview.

The star replies ‘yes,’ after being asked if she dates women, adding she is ‘kind of like the guy when it comes to girls.

‘I’m the dominant one,’ she says.  ‘I’m opening the doors, I’m buying dinner. Yeah, I’m romantic.

‘I was always into very androgynous things. Guys, girls… I’m into androgyny in general.’ 

Wood also tells the magazine she would ‘marry’ her Mildred Pierce co-star Kate Winslet if she could.

The actress plays Winslet’s daughter Veda Pierce in the five-part HBO mini series.

The star, who split from rocker Marilyn Manson last year, also addressed people’s attitude to their relationship.

‘I think one of the things that freaked people out so much is that we looked so different,’ she says.

The operator of Japan’s crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has said it expects to bring the crisis under control within nine months.

Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) said it aimed to reduce radiation leaks in three months and to cool the reactors within an extra three to six months.

The utility said it also plans to cover the reactor building, which was hit by the huge quake and tsunami on 11 March.

Nearly 14,000 people died and another 14,000 are still unaccounted for.

On Sunday, the US pledged to support Japan’s reconstruction efforts.

Radiation levels in the sea near reactor 2 rose to 6,500 times the legal limit on Friday, up from 1,100 times a day earlier, says Tepco, raising fears of fresh radiation leaks.

‘Cold shutdown’

Tsunehisa Katsumata, the chairman of Tepco, Asia’s largest utility, told a news conference in Tokyo on Sunday that they would need up to nine months to bring the power plant to ”cold shutdown”.

He said the plan would allow the tens of thousands of families evacuated from the area around the facility to return home as soon as possible.

“We sincerely apologise for causing troubles,” Mr Katsumata said. “We are doing our utmost to prevent the crisis from further worsening.”

Japan’s government had ordered Tepco to come up with a timetable to end the leaks of radiation.

The BBC’s Roland Buerk in Tokyo says the problem is it is still not certain that the nine-month deadline is something that can be achieved.

Meanwhile, Tepco plans to send two remote-controlled robots into one of the reactors on Sunday to gauge radiation and temperature levels.

The operator of Japan’s crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has said it expects to bring the crisis under control within nine months.

Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) said it aimed to reduce radiation leaks in three months and to cool the reactors within an extra three to six months.

The utility said it also plans to cover the reactor building, which was hit by the huge quake and tsunami on 11 March.

Nearly 14,000 people died and another 14,000 are still unaccounted for.

On Sunday, the US pledged to support Japan’s reconstruction efforts.

Radiation levels in the sea near reactor 2 rose to 6,500 times the legal limit on Friday, up from 1,100 times a day earlier, says Tepco, raising fears of fresh radiation leaks.

‘Cold shutdown’

Tsunehisa Katsumata, the chairman of Tepco, Asia’s largest utility, told a news conference in Tokyo on Sunday that they would need up to nine months to bring the power plant to ”cold shutdown”.

He said the plan would allow the tens of thousands of families evacuated from the area around the facility to return home as soon as possible.

“We sincerely apologise for causing troubles,” Mr Katsumata said. “We are doing our utmost to prevent the crisis from further worsening.”

Japan’s government had ordered Tepco to come up with a timetable to end the leaks of radiation.

The BBC’s Roland Buerk in Tokyo says the problem is it is still not certain that the nine-month deadline is something that can be achieved.

Meanwhile, Tepco plans to send two remote-controlled robots into one of the reactors on Sunday to gauge radiation and temperature levels.

Emergency workers have been unable to enter any reactor building since the disaster.

Why Japan’s Mainstream Media Can’t Be Trusted To Report Objectively On TEPCO (東京電力)By Jake Adelstein | Published: 12 April 2011

When the earthquake struck Japan on March 11th and knocked out TEPCO’s Fukushima nuclear reactor, setting off a chain reaction of disasters–TEPCO’s chairman Tsunehisa Katsumata was nowhere to be found.  Where was he? He was on a tour of China with members of some of Japan’s largest media outlets–and TEPCO was footing the bill.

On March 30th, not only did TEPCO admit that the chairman had been taking Japanese mass media power brokers on the trip to China but also that TEPCO paid the majority of the travel fees for the participants. On April 7th, a reporter asked TEPCO to reveal the names of the mass media firms that had executives and/or former executives joining the chairman on his trip, but TEPCO dodged the question.

It’s well known that TEPCO pays huge advertising fees to most media outlets; it is one of the largest advertisers in Japan. It’s not as well known that the president of TEPCO, Masataka Shimizu, is also the chairman of  the Japan Society for Corporate Communication Studies (JSCCS), which includes among its members former and current top executives from Asahi Beer, Toyota, and Dentsu, Japan’s largest advertising agency. The board of directors also includes a representative of Nihon Television’s Reporting Bureau, Economic News section:

大野 伸 (日本テレビ放送網(株) 報道局 経済部)

In a sense, the president of TEPCO is the chairman of what is whispered to be the equivalent of a lobby group that wields the power of advertising revenue over anyone who crosses their paths. It is ostensibly a group of scholars, executives, advertising agency bosses, mass media representatives, and businessmen who gather together to study more effective means of communications. Veteran Japanese reporters assert that the society also functions as powerful consortium of large corporations who know how to use the threat of taking away advertising dollars as a whip to keep the Japanese media muzzled.

You don’t have to be too bright to figure out that if TEPCO, Toyota, Asahi Beer and Dentsu somehow banded together and pulled advertising from your newspaper, television channel, or radio program, that it would be financially devastating. In the April edition of weekly magazine Asahi Geino, Noted journalist, Takashi Uesugi claims that on March 15th, after repeatedly lampooning and criticizing TEPCO on TBS Radio that the producer asked him to leave the show, claiming that the program was being “revamped.” TBS Radio refuses to comment on the issue at present.

Masataka Shimizu, the president of TEPCO, is still listed as the chairman of the JSCCS but on April 1st his “greetings” were taken down from the sight and replaced with the words of the vice-chairman. The current page expresses condolences to the victims of the recent disasters. There is no mention of the problems at the Fukushima reactor,  only that Chairman Shimizu is now too busy dealing with the disaster to fully devote himself to his duties for the organization.

According to a mainstream Japanese media reporter, the TEPCO tours of China have been going on for over ten year. “The trips have a token amount of study, such as visiting a factory, or whatever has been scheduled to justify the event for that year. In reality, most of the day is devoted to sight-seeing. At night the TEPCO executives wine and dine the reporters, editors, or  mass media representatives. And of course, the obligatory karaoke.”

It’s not surprising that much of the Japanese mainstream media has been less than critical of  TEPCO up until now. It’s very hard to raise your voice loud enough to be heard from inside the pocket of your sponsor.

5:07PM BST 06 Apr 2011

The hearing was a bitter disappointment for the media crews who had converged on Milan from as far as Russia and Australia, and for his critics in Italy who were eagerly awaiting the spectacle of the prime minister being grilled by the three formidable women judges presiding over the trial.

Mr Berlusconi was holding a ministerial meeting in Rome and was not present to answer the charges against him – that on 13 occasions last year he paid for sex with an allegedly under age prostitute and then committed an abuse of office by ordering police to release her from custody when she was arrested for stealing.

He denies any wrongdoing and the Moroccan-born teenager, Karima El Mahroug, also known by the stage name Ruby the Heart Stealer, insists she never slept with him.

At the time of the alleged offences she was 17 – a year beneath the legal age of prostitution under Italian law.

She was just one of dozens of young models, showgirls and aspiring actresses who reportedly entertained the prime minister with strip teases and pole dances at his residence outside Milan, in return for cash, jewellery and help with their careers. 

The trial was adjourned until May 31, to give the judges enough time to consider a request by a women’s organisation, Arcidonna, to be admitted as a civil party to the case on the basis that Mr Berlusconi’s behaviour has “offended the dignity” of all Italian women.

Paola Boccardi, Miss El Mahroug’s lawyer, said her client would not apply to become a civil complainant in the trial, a move that would have allowed her to seek financial damages from Mr Berlusconi if he is found guilty.

“Karima does not believe herself to have suffered any damage from having been present at Arcore, or having visited the premier,” she said.

The trial is expected to take months, if not years, because of the grindingly slow pace at which the Italian court system works and the sheer volume of material to be scrutinised.

Prosecutors have filed 20,000 pages of evidence and have requested that 132 people be called as witnesses.

Mr Berlusconi’s lawyers have presented a witness list of 78 people, including the actor George Clooney, whom Miss El Mahroug claims was at one of the prime minister’s dinners – an account the Hollywood star denies.

Rival groups of protesters hurled insults at each other outside the court building, which was ringed by paramilitary police equipped with riot shields and helmets.

“It’s all false and it is an outrage that the investigators have spent millions of euros wiretapping the phones of the prime minister and his friends,” said Mariagrazia Piracci, 53, who sells advertising space. “He is absolutely innocent.”

But anti-Berlusconi demonstrators carried banners claiming that Mr Berlusconi’s wealth and power had put democracy at risk.

On the eve of the hearing, Mr Berlusconi was able to secure the approval, through his coalition’s parliamentary majority, of a motion that challenges the Milan court’s jurisdiction and argues that the case should instead be heard by a special tribunal of ministers.

The approval of the motion will not stop the trial going ahead for the time being but is due to be considered by Italy’s Constitutional Court, which will decide in coming weeks whether to transfer the trial to the tribunal in Rome, which deals with offences committed by MPs.

Italian prosecutors have opened an investigation into a suspected attempt to falsify the birth records of the teenager at the centre of the underage sex scandal engulfing Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.

Judicial sources said the investigation had been opened against unknown individuals who were alleged to have tried to bribe a Moroccan official to change the birth records of Karima El Mahroug, better known under her stage name Ruby.

Berlusconi has been charged with paying for sex with El Mahroug last year when she was under the legal age limit of 18, and with abusing the powers of his office by intervening with police in a bid to cover up his connection with her.

His trial is scheduled to begin on April 6.

Berlusconi has denied having sex with El Mahroug, who has admitted receiving 7,000 euros (6,000 pounds) from the premier. He has said he merely wanted to help someone in difficulty.

According to the left-wing daily Il Fatto Quotidiano, two Italian men approached a registry official in the Moroccan town of Fkih Ben Salah last month and offered her thousands of euros to change records showing El Mahroug was born on November 1, 1992.

Prostitution is not illegal in Italy, but it is an offence to pay for sex with someone under the age of 18.

As well as denying he had ever had sex with El Mahroug, Berlusconi has also denied ever paying for sex with anyone.

Peter Florjancic (picture: Domen Grogl)

12 April 2011  19:09 ET

In 1943, 24-year-old Peter Florjancic, then known as an Olympic ski jumper representing Yugoslavia, expected to be called up to fight for the German army on the Russian front.

He decided instead to flee.

Hits and Misses

Sketch for car airbags

  • Perfume atomiser (hit)
  • Plastic injection molding machines (hit)
  • Plastic photographic slide frame (hit)
  • Cigarette lighter for Dunhill with rolling ignition on the side of the lighter box (hit)
  • Car airbag (miss)
  • Plastic zip (miss)

On 17 April, he and a friend boarded a train from the sleepy lakeside resort of Bled in German-occupied northern Slovenia.

Part of the way through their contrived skiing holiday in Kitzbuehel, Austria, they would cross the mountain border to neutral Switzerland, while making it look as if they had perished on the slopes of the avalanche-prone Hahnenkamm.

No-one would be able to find out the truth, without endangering their life.

Florjancic would not return to Bled for more than 50 years, time he used to make and blow several small fortunes – and in doing so hobnob with the social elite of the day.

“I was always interested in famous people,” he says.

Before the war had even ended, he had made a pile of money.

Shortly after arriving in Bern, Switzerland, he patented a weaving machine designed for use by disabled people – men wounded in the war, for example – and made 100,000 Swiss francs from it.

“It was enough to buy three luxury houses,” he says.

But Florjancic spent much of it on living the high-life in Davos and Zurich, where he met his wife.

After the war ended, a holiday to Monte Carlo in 1950 turned into a 13-year stay. A poolside meeting with Ilhamy Hussein Pasha, an associate of King Farouk of Egypt, resulted in a long collaboration, during which Florjancic invented a perfume atomiser spray that is still in use all over the world today.

Melting zip

Peter Florjancic
Florjancic loved the high life

From Monte Carlo he moved to Villach, Austria, in 1963, where he would invent plastic ice-skates and the plastic photographic slide frame.

“Gold lies on the streets and you just need to dig it up with ideas. Ideas are like the shovel,” he says.

But not every one of Florjancic’s ideas has unearthed pots of gold. His name appears on more than 230 patents, including ones for a drinking straw holder and an ice spear for chilling drinks.

The world has also largely overlooked the advantages of a broad belt to help couples dance in time and the benefits of a shoe guard for drivers wanting to prevent their heels getting scuffed.

And, sometimes, he has failed to pursue an idea which would later take off, like the safety airbag for cars which he sketched in 1957, but never managed to build without the bags exploding.

The plastic zip fastener was another near miss, dating from the Monte Carlo years.

“I made this zipper in 1948 with plastic material and people were enthusiastic about it. We washed it, and everything was perfect,” Florjancic says.

“Then we ironed the jacket – but we couldn’t get the zipper open any more, because it had melted. The champagne we had ready to celebrate, we drank in sorrow not in success.”

Florjancic withdrew the patent, and earned nothing from the plastic zip’s eventual triumph, when it was re-invented by someone else using tougher materials.

Famous friends

But his successes were plentiful enough to enable him to indulge his desire to move in elevated circles.

Marlene Dietrich and Peter Florjancic

“I was at the right place at the right time,” he says. The right places included some of Europe’s most extravagant hotels.

Born into a hotel-owning family, he then spent 25 years living in them. Even now his office is just off the dining room of a hotel overlooking Lake Bled, walls covered with pictures of famous people he has met.

The listing of the famous names fills any lull in conversation. He sat next to Winston Churchill in the gambling table in Monte Carlo. He was invited to play boules with Konrad Adenauer.

As a child in Bled he spoke to members of Yugoslavia’s Karadjordjevic dynasty and Edward and Wallace Simpson.

He once saw King Farouk having 1m Swiss franks brought to the gaming table on a dozen plates. He appeared in the 1957 film The Monte Carlo Story with Marlene Dietrich. And he shook the hand of Nazi leader Heinrich Himmler while competing in the ski jump in the 1936 Winter Olympics.

His favourite person of all of them was nautical polymath Jacques Cousteau. “He was a very interesting man and knew everything about the sea,” he says.

And what did the famous people find interesting about a Slovenian inventor?

“They were always interested in my story. The story of my escape. I was always telling my story,” says Florjancic.

He finally returned to Slovenia in 1998.

“I told my mother that I would come back to Bled to die. I thought that was going to be back in 2000,” he says.

But there is no let up for the 92-year-old.

“I have no pension,” he says. “Only when you work do you have a clear head.”

Mt. Pisgah RHP Sandy Almon ... 85 mph? (AJC photo)

March 31, 2011   12:00 p.m.

When Mt. Pisgah’s baseball coach says Sandy Almon “doesn’t throw like a girl,” it’s meant as a compliment.

Almon is a girl, and she plays varsity baseball at the Class A private school in Johns Creek. For her senior year, Almon transferred to Mt. Pisgah, where she is a relief pitcher reportedly with 85-mph fastball. She is also a part-time starter at third base.

“We haven’t clocked her yet, but she throws with nice velocity, probably consistently in the lower 80s on her fastball,” Mt. Pisgah coach John O’Connor said. “She is smooth with her mechanics and looks like any other high school pitcher out there on the mound, except that she’s a girl.”

Almon had made three pitching appearances prior to Thursday night’s game against Pace Academy. The right-handed pitcher had a 2-0 record with a 1.17 ERA, striking out nine batters in six innings against Riverside Military Academy, Callaway and Missouri’s Barat Academy.

“I think she’s legitimate,” said Joey Hamilton, a former major league pitcher and one of Almon’s personal coaches. “She has a lot of work ahead of her that needs to be done. But I’ve seen and coached with a lot of boys pitchers the same age, and she has got just as much or more talent than half of them.”

When Mt. Pisgah traveled to Florida for games over spring break, Almon was the starting pitcher for the final game of the trip. She was nervous and walked the first batter. The opposing team, Barat, tried to rattle her by ordering a bunt from the next hitter.

Almon charged from the mound for a diving catch for the first out, and then fired a throw to first base from her knees in time to complete a double play. She pitched three scoreless innings and belted a two-run double in the 17-0 win.

“I love baseball; it’s my favorite sport and always has been,” Almon said. “I don’t know how to explain it other to say that baseball just comes natural to me. Other sports, like basketball, are work. Baseball is not that way.”

Almon is the youngest of seven kids, and has played baseball for youth, recreational and travel teams since she was 3. As a high school freshman, she played on the junior varsity at North Cobb. Almon was told she wasn’t good enough to make the varsity the next two years.

Last summer, Almon’s baseball career was revived when she tried out and made Mt. Pisgah’s club team. After an outing against a Gainesville-area team, the home-plate umpire approached Almon and said, “I’ve officiated for 27 years. I’ve never seen a girl play at this level, and I’ve never seen a girl pitch with that authority. You did a great job and I look forward to reading about you one day.”

Almon transferred to Mt. Pisgah for her senior year because of baseball and academic opportunities. Her mother wanted smaller class sizes for her and more individual attention from teachers. Mt. Pisgah has 250 students in grades 9-12.

Almon made an immediate impact in girls sports at Mt. Pisgah. She played fast-pitch softball for the first time and hit a grand slam in her first plate appearance. She was considered one of the region’s best defensive players at third base and attracted interest from several colleges, including Georgia. In basketball, Almon averaged 11 points and 9 rebounds per game.

She turned to baseball, and O’Connor, a first-year coach, was open to the idea of having a girl on his team. Mt. Pisgah had to make cuts for the first time in the program’s history, but Almon earned one of the 19 varsity spots.

“Her baseball skills are above average for a high school player,” O’Connor said.

Mt. Pisgah’s players have fun with a unique situation. When Almon strikes out a batter, they will sometimes yell, “Atta girl!”

In one of the Florida games, Almon had a check swing and the umpire called out, “He didn’t go.” Players in the Mt. Pisgah dugout responded, “It’s she, ump!” Almon had to step out of the batter’s box and smile and laugh.

Sandy Almon

19 (S is the 19th letter of the alphabet) + 1 (a is the 1st letter of the alphabet) + 14 (n is the 14th letter of the alphabet) = 34

So from ages zero to twenty-seven she has the number 34 going on.

34 = Velocity.  Fastball.  Rate of speed.  Miles per hour.  Quick.  Generating a buzz.  Things happen really quickly.  Skyrocketing.

Authorities said a UW Milwaukee student was heavily drunk when he died after falling down a set of stairs.

The medical examiner’s office said today that 23-year-old Patrick Martin fell down 10 wooden stairs in the basement of a friend’s house last Friday.

He was at a house party for five hours, and his blood alcohol level was point two-six-eight when arriving at a hospital.

Martin died about 11 hours after he fell.

Patrick Alan Martin, age 23, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, April 3, 2011 at Columbia St. Mary’s Hospital in Milwaukee.

Patrick was born on November 23, 1987, the cherished son of Alan and Ellen Martin.

Patrick grew up in the Wexford neighborhood where he made many lasting and wonderful friendships. Friends and family will remember his smile, sense of humor and gentle, fun-loving nature.

Patrick graduated in 2006 from Madison Memorial High School.

While in High School, he was a member of the football team for four years, including an All-City championship his senior year.

Upon graduation he enrolled at Louisiana State University before transferring to the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee to be closer to family and friends.

Patrick was set to graduate in December from UWM with a political science degree and was looking forward to a bright and promising future.

Possible endeavors included further post-grad at LSU, culinary school at Paris or entering the political arena.

Patrick’s dream was to travel the world.

Patrick enjoyed sports, cooking, traveling and spending time with family and friends.

His passion for food and cooking led him to his part time job as a sushi chef at Izumi’s Japanese Restaurant.

He is lovingly survived by his parents, Alan and Ellen Martin, his brother, Andrew Martin, his paternal grandparents, Delmar and Paz Martin, as well as numerous aunts and uncles, cousins and friends.

Patrick was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Robert and Cecilia Risch.

A Celebration of Patrick’s Life will be held on Saturday, April 9, 2011 at 2:00 P.M. at Cress Funeral & Cremation Service, located at 3610 Speedway Road, in Madison.

A Visitation will be held at Cress Funeral & Cremation Service on Saturday, April 9, 2011, from 11:00 A.M. until the time of the Celebration of Patrick’s Life at 2:00 P.M.

The family would like to thank the staff of Columbia St. Mary’s Hospital, especially his nurse Carrie, and Dr. Lafferty.

The Cress Funeral & Cremation Service of Madison assisted the family with their arrangements.

Patrick Alan Martin was born on November 23rd, 1987 according to http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSob=c&GSlh=1&GRid=67970165&

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 0 to 27 are ruled by the sum of the first three letters of the name.

Patrick Alan Martin

16 (P is the 16th letter of the alphabet) + 1 (a is the 1st letter of the alphabet) + 20 (t is the 20th letter of the alphabet) = 37

So from ages zero to twenty-seven he had the number 37 going on.

37 = Drinking.  Alcohol. 

—————————————————————————————-

November 23rd, 1987

November 23rd

11 + 23 +2+0+1+0 = 37 = his personal year (from November 23rd, 2010 to November 22nd, 2011) = Drinking.  Alcohol.

When his number (37 (which ruled his ages 0 to 27)) came up, that’s when he got to live/experience what he was here to live/experience.  So unfortunately this was his year.

Brittany Snow has made it onto the latest cover of Maxim Magazine, and she looks stunning.

The blonde, blue-eyed beauty graces the new issue of Maxim Magazine in a white lace bra, one strap falling down her arm.

The “Harry’s Law” star told the magazine about her new character, “She is definitely what some guys would call the “crazy” girl, but she has a lot of layers. On the outside she’s quirky and ditzy and materialistic, but underneath she’s like a savant who knows a lot about the law.”

She also spoke about relationships. Good news boys, she’s single. Snow told the Maxim, “I’m so single. It’s funny. I’m usually a relationship girl. I love being in love and having a partner in crime. But it’s good to be your own partner in crime. God, that makes me sound like I have multiple-personality disorder.”

She went on to tell the magazine that she doesn’t consider herself a sex symbol, like every other actress.

Want to see more pictures of Snow in Maxim, pick up the new issue.

“Hiccup Girl” Jennifer Mee, the Pinellas County girl whose uncontrollable hiccups drew worldwide fame, is now talking to select press outlets, trying to publicize an alternate explanation for her involvement in the Oct. 23 murder of a 22-year-old man.

Mee talked with Tampa Fox affiliate WTVT-Ch. 13 for an interview which aired today and NBC’s Today show for a talk to be broadcast Tuesday morning. She had to speak with them from the Pinellas County jail, where she is awaiting trial for murder, accused of luring Shannon Griffin to a vacant home, where he died after being shot, police said, during a robbery gone bad.

“I was just going with what people were telling me to do,” Mee told WTVT reporter Doug Smith. “It was a whole….I call it a love triangle.” See the St. Petersburg Times report on her recent statements here.

Mee, who appeared on national news programs in 2008 to describe her hiccuping problem, told Smith that her problem was a curse, blaming it for drawing the wrong people to her. She said one of the men arrested with her, 20-year-old Laron Cordale Raiford, shot Griffin in a jealous rage after catching the two of them together (another roommate, Lamont Antonio Newton, 22, was also arrested). Police said Mee, Raiford and Newton admitted they tried to rob Green.

Mee’s attorney John Trevena said he made his client available to select press outlets when he became concerned police released the most damaging evidence against his client close to her bond hearing. “They tried to manipulate the media and the jury pool,” said Trevena, known for taking cases with a high media profile. “They turned my own game against me.”  

Mee’s arrest at the end of last year kicked off a frenzy of news outlets trying to get an interview with the girl, who gained nationwide attention two years earlier for her uncontrollable hiccuping.

Local radio personality Todd “MJ” Schnitt featured Mee’s mother, her attorney and Griffin’s ex-girlfriend; the Today show also featured Mee’s mother and Trevena. If Trevena should ask for a new bond hearing, perhaps we’ll see whether the publicity tactic worked.

NBC’s press release on the interview is below.

AMY ROBACH SITS DOWN WITH ‘HICCUP GIRL’ JENNIFER MEE FROM JAIL

Robach Talks To Mee In an Exclusive Jailhouse Interview To Air Tomorrow, Tuesday, April 5 on “Today”
 
NEW YORK – April 4, 2011 – – NBC News’ Amy Robach sits down with Jennifer Mee in an exclusive interview from Pinellas County Jail in Clearwater, Fla. where she is awaiting trial for first-degree murder. Mee was known as “hiccup girl” after an uncontrollable case of the hiccups in 2007 garnered her national media attention. During the interview, a tearful Mee discusses her life in jail saying; “This is not the life I wanted to live.” She candidly talks to Robach about charges she is facing. The interview airs tomorrow, Tuesday, April 5 on “Today.”

William and Kate is an American television movie about the relationship between Prince William of Wales and Kate Middleton, directed by Mark Rosman and written by Nancey Silvers.

Produced by Lifetime, the filming is mostly in Los Angeles, with some second unit location filming in England and Scotland, and the planned release date is 18 April 2011.  This will come ten days before the wedding of William and Kate on 29 April.

Mary Elise Hayden was born on April 18th, 1985 according to http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1792514/

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 0 to 27 are ruled by the sum of the month of birth and the first three letters of the name.

Mary Elise Hayden   April 18th, 1985

4 (April) + 13 (M is the 13th letter of the alphabet) + 1 (a is the 1st letter of the alphabet) + 18 (r is the 18th letter of the alphabet) = 36

So from ages zero to twenty-seven she has the number 36 going on.

36 = Pippa Middleton.

[Numerologically, a person’s life lesson number stands for themself. 

Philippa Charlotte Middleton (Pippa) was born on September 6th, 1983 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pippa_Middleton

September 6th, 1983

9 + 6 +1+9+8+3 = 36 = her life lesson = what she is here to learn = Managing.  The weight of ambition.  Avoiding biting off more than you can chew.

So it is understandable that Mary Elise Hayden plays Pippa Middleton.]

File:Kate Middleton at the Garter Procession 2008.jpg

Catherine ElizabethKateMiddleton (born 9 January 1982) is the fiancée of Prince William of Wales. Their wedding will take place on 29 April 2011 at Westminster Abbey, with the day declared a bank holiday in the UK.

Middleton grew up in Berkshire and, after attending Marlborough College, went to the University of St Andrews, where she met Prince William, also studying there, in 2001.

Since her relationship with Prince William began, Middleton has received widespread media attention and there was much speculation that they would eventually marry. On 16 November 2010, the office of the Prince of Wales at Clarence House announced their engagement. The date and location of the wedding were announced one week later.

Middleton was born at Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading, Berkshire.  She is the eldest of three children born to Carole Elizabeth (born 1955, née Goldsmith), a flight attendant, and Michael Francis Middleton (born 1949), a flight dispatcher and later an airline officer for British Airways. Her parents married on 21 June 1980 at the Parish Church of Dorney, Buckinghamshire  and in 1987 founded Party Pieces, a mail order company that sells party supplies and decorations.

Middleton’s paternal family came from Leeds, West Yorkshire, and her great-grandmother Olivia was a member of the Lupton family, who were active for generations in Leeds in commercial and municipal work.  Through Olivia Lupton, her ancestors include The Rev. Thomas Davis, a Church of England hymn-writer.  Carole Middleton’s maternal family, the Harrisons, were working class labourers and miners from County Durham.  Middleton has two siblings, Philippa Charlotte, known as “Pippa”, and James William.  Pippa Middleton, a graduate of the University of Edinburgh, has received press coverage since her sister became famous, with focus on her relationships and lifestyle.  Middleton’s family were in Amman, Jordan from May 1984 to September 1986, where Middleton went to an English language nursery school, before returning to their home in Berkshire.

After her return from Amman, Middleton was educated at St. Andrew’s School in the village of Pangbourne in Berkshire, then briefly at Downe House, before moving on to Marlborough College, a co-educational independent school in Wiltshire, followed by the University of St Andrews in Fife, where she met William and graduated with a 2:1 (Hons) in the History of Art.

In November 2006, Middleton accepted a position as an accessory buyer with clothing chain Jigsaw.

In September 2007, it was reported that Middleton was planning to give up her job as an accessory buyer to become a professional photographer. Some months later, it was announced that she intended to take private classes with photographer Mario Testino, who had taken several well-known photographs of Diana, Princess of Wales, and her sons. Middleton and Testino apparently were introduced by Prince William. Testino later denied that Middleton was going to be working for him. In December 2007, it was also reported that Middleton had moved in with Prince William at Clarence House, the residence of the Prince of Wales in London.  Clarence House later denied this.

On 17 May 2008, Middleton attended the wedding of William’s cousin Peter Phillips to Autumn Kelly, which the prince did not attend.  On 19 July 2008, Middleton attended the wedding of Lady Rose Windsor and George Gilman. William was away on military operations in the Caribbean, serving aboard the HMS Iron Duke.

On 28 February 2010, The Times reported that Middleton was pursuing an invasion of privacy suit against photographer Niraj Tanna who took pictures of her over Christmas 2009, although they were never published in Britain. Middleton has not pursued the claim against the photographer.

Middleton has been featured in several best-dressed lists and was selected by The Daily Telegraph as the “Most Promising Newcomer” in its 2006 list of style winners and losers.  Tatler placed her at #8 on its yearly listing of the top ten style icons in 2007.  She was also featured in People magazine’s 2007 and 2010 best-dressed lists.  Middleton was named as one of Richard Blackwell‘s ten “Fabulous Fashion Independents” of 2007.  In June 2008 Style.com selected Middleton as its monthly beauty icon.  In July 2008 Middleton was included in Vanity Fair‘s international best-dressed list.

Middleton’s unsubstantiated status as the girlfriend of William brought her widespread media coverage in the UK and abroad, and she was often photographed on her daily outings. On 17 October 2005, she complained through her lawyer about harassment from the media, stating that she had done nothing significant to warrant such publicity.

In February 2006, it was announced that Middleton would receive her own 24-hour security detail supplied by the Royalty and Diplomatic Protection Department. This fuelled further speculation that she and William would soon be engaged, since she would not, otherwise, be entitled to this service. No engagement occurred, and Middleton was not granted an allowance to fund this security. Media attention increased around the time of Middleton’s 25th birthday in January 2007, prompting warnings from both Charles and William and from Middleton’s lawyers, who threatened legal action. Two newspaper groups, News International, which publishes The Times and The Sun, and the Guardian Media Group, publishers of The Guardian, decided to refrain from publishing paparazzi photographs of her.

Middleton attended at least one event as an official royal guest, William’s Passing Out Parade at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst on 15 December 2006.

On 14 April 2007 The Sun newspaper broke a “world exclusive” suggesting that Prince William and Middleton had split up.  Other media outlets such as the BBC confirmed the story as the day progressed. The couple decided to break up during a holiday in the Swiss resort of Zermatt.

Clarence House made only one comment about the relationship’s end, according to The Times, stating, “We don’t comment on Prince William’s private life.”  Newspapers speculated about the reasons for the split, although these reports relied on anonymous sources. The original report in The Sun quoted a “close friend of the couple” as saying that Middleton felt William had not been paying her enough attention. The paper highlighted reports that William had been spending time with other young women, and said the Prince, aged 24 at the time of the split, felt he was too young to marry.

A report in the Daily Mail blamed a desire by royal courtiers not to “hurry along” a marriage announcement, and William’s desire to enjoy his bachelor status within his Army career. The Mail also suggested that William’s friend Guy Pelly encouraged the Prince to take a “careless approach” to relationships. The same article suggested that Middleton had “expected too much” in wanting William to demonstrate his commitment to her.

In June 2007, Middleton and William insisted they were “just good friends” following reports of a reconciliation.  Middleton and her family attended the Concert for Diana at Wembley Stadium; she and William sat two rows apart.  The couple were subsequently seen together in public on a number of occasions, and several news sources, including the BBC and the Daily Mail, stated that they had “rekindled their relationship.”  Middleton also joined William and Charles on a deerstalking expedition at Balmoral and attended the wedding of William’s cousin, Peter Phillips, even though William, due to a prior commitment, did not. In April 2008, Middleton accompanied William when he was awarded his RAF wings at the Royal Air Force College Cranwell.  On 16 June 2008, Middleton attended William’s investiture into the Order of the Garter along with the Royal Family.

Prince William and Kate Middleton became engaged in October 2010 in Kenya, East Africa, during a 10-day trip to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy to celebrate William’s passing his RAF helicopter search and rescue course.  Clarence House announced the engagement on 16 November 2010.

The couple are to marry in Westminster Abbey on 29 April 2011.

It is customary for royal men to receive a dukedom when they marry; possible dukedoms for William after his marriage are Clarence, Cambridge, Sussex, Kendal, Avondale, and Strathearn.  As the wife of a royal duke and prince, Middleton would assume the title of duchess.

In Letters Patent dated 21 August 1996 (shortly before the divorce of the Prince and Princess of Wales) it was acknowledged that, “by convention”, the wife of a son or grandson of the Sovereign is entitled to the style title or attribute of “Royal Highness”.  If William were not given a title then, after the wedding, Middleton would, by convention (unless explicitly vetoed by the Queen), be known as Her Royal Highness Princess William of Wales taking her husband’s first name on marriage (as with Princess Michael of Kent).  If, however, William is given a title, she would be known as “Her Royal Highness The Duchess [or other rank if appropriate] of N”.

On 16 February 2011, Clarence House announced that Middleton’s and William’s first royal tour of Canada would take place in July 2011.  She was formally introduced to public life on 24 February 2011, some two months before the wedding, when she and William attended a lifeboat naming ceremony in Trearddur, North Wales.

14 year + 4 (April) = 18 = her personal month (from April 9th, 2011 to May 8th, 2011) = Surreal.  Bewitching.  Kate Middleton madness / mad for Kate. 

 

18 month + 29 (29th of the month on April 29th, 2011) = 47 = her personal day = Prince William.  Famous.  Name & fame.  Notoriety.  Name recognition.  (Inter)nationally known.  High profile.  VIP.  Well-known.  Household name.  Public life.  Limelight.  Legendary.  Notable.  Noteworthy.  Eminent.  Prominent. 

[Numerologically, a person’s life lesson number stands for themself. 

Prince William was born on June 21st, 1982 according to http://www.astro.com/astro-databank/William%2C_Prince_%281982%29

June 21st, 1982

6 + 21 +1+9+8+2 = 47 = his life lesson = Famous.  Name & fame.  Notoriety.  Name recognition.  (Inter)nationally known.  High profile.  VIP.  Well-known.  Household name.  Public life.  Limelight.  Legendary.  Notable.  Noteworthy.  Eminent.  Prominent. 

Not surprisingly, Kate is to marry William (whose life lesson number is 47) on her 47 day.]

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 27 to 54 are ruled by the sum of the day of birth and the 4th, 5th and 6th letters of the name.

Catherine Elizabeth Middleton   January 9th, 1982

9 (born on the 9th of the month) + 8 (h is the 8th letter of the alphabet) + 5 (e is the 5th letter of the alphabet) + 18 (r is the 18th letter of the alphabet) = 40

So from ages twenty-seven to fifty-four she has the number 40 going on.

40 = Princess.

The bodies of two workers killed by the tsunami which wrecked Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant more than three weeks ago have been recovered.

Their remains were found last Wednesday but had to be decontaminated before they could be returned to the families.

Meanwhile, officials are still struggling to stop contaminated water leaking into the sea from a crack in reactor 2.

They now intend to try using an absorbent polymer to plug the gap.

Initial attempts to stop the leak by pouring concrete into the containment pit have failed.

The authorities say the radioactive material will rapidly dissipate in the sea and is not thought likely to endanger health.

But the pools of contaminated water within the nuclear plant are hampering efforts to stabilise the reactors.

Thousands still missing

The Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), which operates the Fukushima Daiichi plant, said the bodies of the two missing workers were found on 30 March in the basement of the turbine building of reactor 4.

They were named as Kazuhiko Kokubo, 24, and Yoshiki Terashima, 21.

They died of bleeding from multiple head wounds, Japan’s Kyodo news agency reported.

Fukushima nuclear plant

  • Reactor 1: Damage to the core from cooling problems. Building holed by gas explosion. Radioactive water detected in reactor and basement, and groundwater
  • Reactor 2: Damage to the core from cooling problems. Building holed by gas blast; containment damage suspected. Highly radioactive water detected in reactor and adjoining tunnel
  • Reactor 3: Damage to the core from cooling problems. Building holed by gas blast; containment damage possible. Spent fuel pond partly refilled with water after running low. Radioactive water detected in reactor and basement
  • Reactor 4: Reactor shut down prior to quake. Fires and explosion in spent fuel pond; water level partly restored
  • Reactors 5 & 6: Reactors shut down. Temperature of spent fuel pools now lowered after rising high

  • Q&A: Health effects of radiation
  • Q&A: Fukushima radiation alert
  • An operation to search for those still missing from communities further north along the coast is continuing on land and at sea, says the BBC’s Rachel Harvey in Tokyo.

    More than 60 bodies have been recovered over the past two days, our correspondent says, but more than 16,000 people remain unaccounted for.

    On Saturday, Tepco officials said water contaminated with radioactive iodine was leaking from a 20cm (8in) crack in the pit at reactor 2.

    They had earlier said they suspected radioactive material was escaping continuously from the plant.

    Measurements showed the air above the radioactive water in the pit contained 1,000 millisieverts of radioactivity.

    Also on Saturday, Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan visited the area around Fukushima – his first ground visit to the disaster zone, although he had flown over tsunami-hit areas the day after the earthquake.

    Mr Kan, who flew into Rikuzentakata on a military helicopter from Tokyo, visited an evacuation centre and the base camp for workers trying to stabilise the plant, just inside the 20-km exclusion zone around Fukushima Daiichi.

    Mr Kan assured people in Rikuzentakata affected by the disaster that the Japanese government would do all it could to help them.

    In the first confirmation of fatalities at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex, the plant’s operator on Sunday announced the recovery of the bodies of two workers who had gone missing after the devastating earthquake and tsunami.

    Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Yoshiki Terashima, 21, and Kazuhiko Kokubo, 24, had rushed to the turbine room of the No. 4 reactor to inspect the power switches and test the operation valves after the March 11 earthquake. An autopsy revealed that they likely died from the force of impact from the tsunami.

    Their bodies were found in the building’s basement Wednesday afternoon and had to be decontaminated, the company said, adding the announcement was delayed out of consideration for the families.

    Two employees of Tokyo Electric Power Company who had been missing since the March 11 quake and tsunami have been found dead at the crisis-hit Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, the utility said on Sunday, adding that they died of bleeding from multiple wounds.

    They are believed to have died around 4:00pm (local time) on March 11, apparently after the 2:46pm quake triggered a massive tsunami.

    Their bodies were found Wednesday and required work to remove radioactive materials from them, the utility said.

    The plant is continuing to release high-level radiation in Japan’s worst ever nuclear crisis.

    The two were identified as Kazuhiko Kokubo, 24, and Yoshiki Terashima, 21, who both belonged to an operation management division.

    Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 0 to 27 are ruled by the sum of the first three letters of the first name.

    Yoshiki Terashima

    25 (Y is the 25th letter of the alphabet) + 15 (o is the 15th letter of the alphabet) + 19 (s is the 19th letter of the alphabet) = 59

    So from ages zero to twenty-seven he had the number 59 going on.

    59 = Nuclear energy.  Decontaminate.  Funeral arrangements.

    Ages 18 to 27 are ruled by the third letter of the name.

    Kazuhiko Kokubo

    Z is the 26th letter of the alphabet, so from ages eighteen to twenty-seven he had the number 26 going on.

    26 = In the news.
