How pathetic. After being dumped as Miss Nevada over raunchy photos posted online, Katie Rees is begging for her crown back. She appeared in photos revealing a breast, exposing her thong underwear and kissing other young women at a party in Tampa, now says her behavior was an "isolated incident." Good Lord, have you no shame. You acted like a drunk pig only once in your life. Go ahead Donald, give the slut a second chance. We are running low on role models anyway.
Anyway there are still fee rides in Mississauga, York Region, Durham Region, and on GO Transit, thanks to sponsorship from Ontario Power Generation.

A ministry spokesman confirmed the campaign but declined to answer questions about it. But a ministry official told the Korea Times daily: “Korean corporate culture that includes heavy drinking is also what makes buying sex acceptable as a way for male-bonding, which is proving to be a hard-to-break ritual.” The ministry is offering movie tickets based on the number of employees who pledge not to visit prostitutes as well as a cash prize of 1 million won ($1,077) for the company which enlists the most employees in the campaign.
I am guessing the Israel bashers will accuse Israel of being the first the break the cease fire.

The NFL has effectively banned stadiums from playing Gary Glitter's "Rock and Roll Part 2" after the Brit rocker was convicted of molesting underage girls in Vietnam, prompting a search for a substitute celebratory anthem. The Denver Broncos switched to Big Bad Voodoo Daddy's "Go Daddy-o"; Kansas City Chiefs fans voted for P.O.D.'s "Boom."
Well, considering most of Michael Jackson's oeuvre is probably out, might we suggest some good-hearted music by ... uh ... OK, we don't know any rock bands who haven't had sex with girls under 18. Wait: Boy George. Boy George has probably never had sex with a woman under the age of 18. Who's up for "Karma Chameleon," yeah!

The companies claim there is no risk but I noticed the Ontario Medical Association claims that ultrasound can affect a fetus and suggest that scans be conducted for medical reasons only and has asked the government to ban souvenir ultrasounds. The companies claim that radiologists don't like the competition. The Ontario Ministry of Health is reviewing the issue. I know I avoid any evasive medical procedure. I can't believe how stupid people can be with the unborn babies while trying to copy Tom Cruise.

The civil war in Sierra Leone is fuelled by the trade in “blood diamonds”—in which gems are smuggled out of the country and sold to European buyers for arms money. Solomon Vandy (Djimon Hounsou), a fisherman, loses his son to the guerrilla army, the Revolutionary United Front, which press-gangs the boy into service. The R.U.F. also forces Solomon to work in the diamond fields, where he pulls a pink stone from the marshy waters. He buries it, but word gets around. It’s a very big diamond, and a smuggler named Danny Archer (Leonardo DiCaprio), a white Rhodesian by birth and a former mercenary in Angola, wants it. In the capital city of Freetown, Maddy Bowen (Jennifer Connelly), a magazine reporter, tries to cozy up to Archer so that she can get the story of how the smuggling racket works. Solomon, Danny, and Maddy all want something, and they take turns using, helping, and half trusting one another to get it, stumbling in and out of war zones as young killers rampage through the towns firing AK-47s from the backs of pickup trucks.
What stands this movie apart from most other adventure films is the acting of DiCaprio and Hounsou who will both be strongly considered for Oscar nominations. DiCaprio is likely the most talented actor in his age group right now and he is totally believable in this role. He is almost as good as he was in The Departed.
