I am looking forward to so many things particularly travelling, working with good causes and making friends along the way. What they have done for good causes is amazing and I really look forward to seeing Anna go from strength to strength. Thirty young women from across England, and Scotland and Wales competed for the chance to represent the UK on the Miss Universe stage later in the year. The competition was held over four days in Cardiff at the host hotel — the Cardiff Marriott.
During the day, they broke wooden boards with their bare hands in the name of self-belief. Other prizes went to: Christina Chalk from Dunblane who was 1st runner up Samantha Hancock from Cardiff who was 2nd runner up. The finalists spent three days in Cardiff at the host hotel — the Cardiff Marriott.
On Thursday 25 June, they took part in an empowerment day with leadership coach Harry Singha. On day two Friday 26 June they had a fitness challenge, flashmob, cocktail party and a celebration dinner; and on day three, the contestants had an interview with the judges and took part in three catwalk rounds including swimwear and evening wear. Nena France won the overall title. Many of the events took place at our host hotel the Cardiff Marriott.
A fan of such giants as Alfred Hitchcock, Godard was an advocate of the "auteur" theory behind filmmaking, in which a single vision usually the director's aimed all facets of filmmaking through their personal lens. After making a documentary and several shorts, Godard directed his first feature, "Breathless A Bout de Souffle " , a brisk, dark comedy shot on the streets with a handheld camera, starring Jean-Paul Belmondo as a petty thief and Jean Seberg as an American ex-pat.
It was a hybrid of Continental and Hollywood styles that paid homage to Godard's hero Howard Hawks, while also reveling in an untethered narrative. The film became an international success — a breath of fresh cinematic air — and began a string of Godard movies that were more blatantly political, and more esoteric, than those of his contemporaries. As critic Roger Ebert noted , "Godard depends on us to do the heavy lifting. He experimented with video editing, sound editing, 3-D, and smearing colors.
I was, in a word, pessimistic. After '[Pierrot le Fou],' I no longer feel this. Yes, one must film, talk about, everything. Everything remains to be done. For "Sympathy for the Devil" a documentary depicting American counterculture and revolutionary movements like the Black Panthers, interwoven with film taken of the Rolling Stones recording in the studio , the producer re-edited Godard's version, leaving the director so incensed he punched the producer in the nose in front of a London audience.
Godard's reputation as an enfant terrible was not limited to what appeared on screen. In his early days he was something of a kleptomaniac with his family and colleagues; and when fellow filmmaker and longtime friend Agnes Varda visited his home in Rolle, Switzerland, while filming her documentary "Faces Places," Godard refused even to come to the door. Hurt, Varda left a note on his window glass "No thanks for your bad hospitality" , but, she admitted, "I drew a heart anyway.
Her endurance as a stoic symbol of heritage and tradition, even as her country underwent enormous social upheavals, made her the most significant figure in British culture, a huge unifying symbol across generations, and a beloved matriarch far beyond the Empire's shifting boundaries. The eldest daughter of George VI who'd become king following the abdication of his older brother, Edward VIII , Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor worked to raise her country's morale during wartime, and volunteered as a mechanic in the women's auxiliary service.
She married Philip Mountbatten, a member of the Greek royal family, and gave birth to four children — Charles, Anne, Andrew and Edward. After her father's death, Elizabeth's sense of duty became her primary image to the world. But the course of the British monarchy over the past seven decades would be a rocky one. In contrast to her steadfast union with Prince Philip, the marriages of her sister Margaret, her daughter Anne, and her sons Charles and Andrew all ended in divorces.
The queen's lowest point was the death in of Princess Diana, following her tabloid-fodder separation from Charles, when the monarch's reputation for being unflappable stood in stark contrast to the public's very demonstrative show of emotion and grief. After days of public silence, Elizabeth addressed the nation on television: "What I say to you now, as your Queen and as a grandmother, I say from my heart.
First, I want to pay tribute to Diana myself. She was an exceptional and gifted human being. In good times and bad, she never lost her capacity to smile and laugh, nor to inspire others with her warmth and kindness. I admired and respected her — for her energy and commitment to others, and especially for her devotion to her two boys. The queen would make gradual accommodations to the times and to the changing expectations of a less-deferential British public, for example agreeing to pay taxes on her income after complaints about the costs of repairing a fire-damaged Windsor Castle.
She also helped guide the maturation of her grandchildren, Prince William and Prince Harry, after Diana's death. When Prince Charles remarried Camilla Parker Bowles, the queen hosted the reception, and in time made her preference known that once Charles succeeded her as king, Camilla should be honored with the title Queen Consort.

Born in Chicago, Shaw was a U. Marine in Hawaii in , when he managed to secure a meeting with one of his journalistic heroes, Walter Cronkite, who later described Shaw to the Washington Post as "the most persistent guy I've ever met in my life … I was going to give him five begrudging minutes, and ended up talking to him for a half-hour.
He was just determined to be a journalist. He was one of the first reporters on the scene of the Jonestown massacre in Guyana. At CNN, the first hour news channel, Shaw anchored the network's on-the-scene reporting from Baghdad as airstrikes marked the beginning of the U. When Shaw asked Democrat Michael Dukakis — who opposed the death penalty — whether he would condone capital punishment if his own wife had been raped and killed, Dukakis' cool, legalistic response was deemed fatally damaging to his candidacy.
Shaw himself was criticized for even asking it. It was the answer. He told Salon in , "It took me a long time to see this, but of course it kind of darkened my view of life in general. It meant that I was way more open to fear than any child ought to be, and that I knew more about fear and its first cousin terror, and pain, than children are normally expected to know. And it meant that I was kind of pushed forward into an emotional understanding that I wasn't quite prepared for.
I had nightmares; my behavior suffered. I darkened in character; I was less amenable, less friendly. I was way less a child than I had been beforehand. It took me a long time to understand the consequences of that single event. Once I did understand the consequences then I was far more able to deal with them. It meant also that I had that material available for conscious thematic use. Instead of a dissertation, though, he wrote a novel, "Marriages. Neil Gaiman once likened Straub's short fiction to "tiny novels you drown in.

I reread 'Bartleby' when it came out in one of those 'Penguin 60s' that also included my 'Blue Rose', and to say I was impressed and moved is drastically to understate. I thought it was one of the most beautiful, most profound things I'd ever read. It also addressed and spoke to an interest of mine which could loosely be called 'indeterminacy. You cannot reduce it to an equation.
You cannot extract a comforting little moral from it. It's hard to say exactly what it means, but it is completely profound. She became more involved in the feminist movement following the birth of her daughter, Rosa, she explained, as she was appalled by her hospital's treatment of patients. She authored or co-authored 23 books, her most famous being 's "Nickel and Dimed: On Not Getting By in America," in which she recounted taking on minimum-wage jobs such as a hotel maid, waitress, cleaning woman, and Wal-Mart sales clerk , and moving into cheap lodging, to find out firsthand about the lives and struggles of the working poor — people she dubbed "the major philanthropists of our society.
To be a member of the working poor is to be an anonymous donor, a nameless benefactor, to everyone else. A lot of people have it," said Braver. In her book "Bright-Sided," she argued that the relentless promotion of positive thinking has undermined America.
Realism, I would call that," she replied. He survived an attempted coup in August , but in a matter of months, after more and more Soviet republics declared their independence, he resigned on December 25, The next day, the Soviet Union ceased to exist.

There were uprisings and wars in the southern Caucasus and Baltic republics. Many seniors lost their life savings because of hyper-inflation. Price increases led to shortages, bread lines, factory shutdowns, and strikes. Yes, indeed. And with more persistence and determination. But his global popularity was not matched back home, where he was blamed for the Soviet Union's collapse, and for the economic turmoil that followed.
In his address to the nation upon stepping down from office, Gorbachev reflected, "The process of renovating this country and bringing about fundamental changes in the international community proved to be much more complex than originally anticipated. However, let us acknowledge what has been achieved so far. Society has acquired freedom; it has been freed politically and spiritually. And this is the most important achievement, which we have not fully come to grips with in part because we still have not learned how to use our freedom.
What was then the most expensive movie in German film history, "Das Boot" would be nominated for six Academy Awards including two for Petersen, for direction and screenwriting. It would launch Petersen who'd worked extensively in German television, but who grew up enamored by the films of John Ford towards a Hollywood career, starting with the children's fantasy "The NeverEnding Story.
We didn't learn about the situation under the Nazis. My parents never really talked about that. And for a kid at the age of 10 or 12, you want an answer. I had the feeling that everything in my world and in Germany around that time was unclear. There was no moral there; there was no understanding of why things happened. Clarity is important for a boy, and it was missing from the world around us. Fox Show," "Chicago P.
She began acting at age 12 at a N. The following year her year-old brother died by suicide. At 17 she began therapy for having experienced "a lot of death, and a lot of abuse and homelessness," she told the Associated Press. In she began a relationship with comedian Ellen Degeneres, making them one of Hollywood's first openly-gay couples. They would be together for three years. But Heche said it affected her professionally — she claimed the studio threatened her if she brought Degeneres to the "Volcano" premiere afterparty, and that it was Ford's support that kept her from being fired from the rom-com "Six Days, Seven Nights.
Heche's mental health issues would also become fodder for the media, as when she had a public breakdown following the end of her relationship with Degeneres. She would go on to have two children, one with husband Coleman Laffoon whom she divorced in , and one with actor James Tupper. In Heche was asked by the magazine Mr. Warburton what advice she would share with a young up-and-comer struggling with insecurity or finding their true self: "Risk is the key.
Be yourself. Be brave. Also, the longer I have been in the business, the more I know that everyone pretends to know more than they do. So don't be intimidated! His session work would lead him to producer Phil Spector to whom, years earlier, he'd given guitar lessons and to countless pop and rock songs that helped define the era. Though his performances were often anonymous, they were nonetheless memorable, whether he was wielding a Daneletro six-string bass guitar on the theme for the TV series "The Wild, Wild West" , or a ukulele on the Oscar-winning song from "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head".
Born in England, the daughter of a German literature professor and granddaughter of a Nobel Prize-winning physicist, Newton-John's family moved to Australia when she was 5, but she returned to England in her teens to live with her mother after her parents split.
From the early s, Newton-John had 14 Top 10 singles in the U. In she was named the Country Music Association's top artist beating out Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn , but her music became more associated with the pop genre. The following year she topped the charts again with "Physical," which sat at 1 for 10 weeks and was named song of the year by Billboard, despite its being banned by some radio stations due to its somewhat provocative lyrics.
Her music video for the song won a Grammy for best video. At age 43, Newton-John felt a lump during a breast self-examination. She was diagnosed with cancer on the same day her father died. You know, 'I've gotta get through this for her. And she continued to perform. Newton-John's later albums included "Stronger Than Before" ; the holiday album "This Christmas" in which she re-teamed with Travolta ; and 's "Summer Nights: Live in Las Vegas," which grew out of her three-year-long residency on the Strip.
But her cancer returned in The cancer went into remission, but in it returned. One of the items sold: her skintight black leather pants from "Grease," which — she proved to "Sunday Morning" in — still fit her. In talking about "Grease" to The Telegraph in , she recalled: "Everything about making the film was fun, but if I had to pick a favorite moment, it was the transformation from what I call Sandy 1 to Sandy 2.
I got to play a different character and wear different clothes, and when I put on that tight black outfit to sing 'You're the One That I Want,' I got a very different reaction from the guys on the set. But McCullough's expertise went beyond the White House.
He also narrated the film "Seabiscuit," the real-life story of the racehorse that defied everyone's worst expectations. He received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in In a interview on CBS' "Face the Nation," in describing how the nation was living in "clearly a dangerous time," McCullough discussed how America needed to learn the lessons of how it overcame a civil war, the influenza epidemic and the Great Depression, as well as winning two world wars.
We are not doing very well or not doing as well as we should in raising our oncoming generations with an appreciation of the story of their country. The theme park plans were shelved. For all of his writings about the successes and failures of America's past, and of its leaders and despite his criticism of the 45th president's time in office as "disappointing" and "grotesque" , McCullough was an optimist about our country.
He told "Sunday Morning" in , "We're just getting started. That's the way I feel. Two hundred years is nothing! Raymond Damadian Dr. Raymond Damadian posing with an MRI machine, which he invented. Raymond Damadian March 16, August 3, began experimenting at a Brooklyn medical center with nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy — hitting tissue with radio wave pulses within a magnetic field.
When he discovered in that it provided a feasible means to detect cancerous cells in rats, he published his findings, which lead to his construction of the first MRI magnetic resonance imaging scanner. The very first scan, in a machine he called "Indomitable," was conducted on July 3, , on one of his assistants, he being skinny enough, after an earlier scan on Damadian failed.
Magazine in Damadian then founded a company, Fondar, to produce a commercial version of the scanner. Fonar would later introduce an upright MRI scanner. But when the Nobel Prize was awarded to two other scientists for the development of magnetic resonance imaging, Damadian launched a campaign to right what he characterized a "shameful wrong. It became a tremendous critical and commercial success, selling more than 1. Bank, a Cornell University masters' graduate and copywriter for an ad firm, won a short-story competition in The "Girls' Guide" title story was published in in the magazine Zoetrope, prompting a bidding war for a collection.
But it would take Bank 12 years to complete "Girls' Guide," her work interrupted by a bicycle accident from which she suffered short-term memory loss and an inability to remember words. Upon the collection's publication, Bank was praised for her "exquisite portraits of loneliness," and for her wit and precise language, inspired by such writers as Vladimir Nabokov, John Cheever and Ernest Hemingway.
Two stories from "Girls' Guide" were adapted for the romcom "Suburban Girl. In a interview with Salon. At a certain point I had this breakthrough — I was really blocked, and I started saying this thing to myself: 'You're the only person who can write this story.

Somehow that's how you wind up at anything universal. And while the team changed rosters and managers many times over, Scully was in the announcing booth as the Voice of the Dodgers for nearly seven decades, including for six World Series championships. Born in the Bronx, Scully's family moved to Brooklyn following the death of his father. It was there he played stickball and listened to sports on the radio.
He eventually broadcast games for the Fordham University radio station. He stayed with the team for 67 seasons. During his tenure, he called 18 no-hitters and three perfect games. Scully was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in , and in the American Sportscasters Association voted Scully "the greatest sportscaster of the 20th century. It was in that the redhead who started with the Brooklyn Dodgers at 23 retired, just shy of his 89th birthday.
Scully told "Sunday Morning" in that in retirement he could enjoy watching baseball purely as a fan. He said he did not regret parting with any of his collection, from his Babe Ruth autograph to his World Series ring. Off of it, he was a civil rights trailblazer. As a star player at the University of San Francisco, he led the team to two NCAA championships in and , and then took home a gold medal from the Melbourne Olympics in After a decade with the Celtics, Russell took on the role of player-coach — the first Black head coach in NBA history — leading the team to titles in and ' Through it all, Russell stood tall for civil rights and social justice.

Dow was 12 years old when he started playing the older brother to Theodore "Beaver" Cleaver Jerry Mathers on the hit series that would quickly come to represent an idealized paradigm of mid-century American family life.
The show ran from to , and aired for decades afterwards in reruns. Dow reprised his role in a reunion movie and TV series in the s. But as he told CBS News' Jim Axelrod in a interview, it felt "sad to be famous at 12 years old or something, and then you grow up and become a real person, and nothing's happening for you. And it's had a lot of effect on my life. He credited his work as a sculptor — combined with medication and therapy — for helping him getting a handle on his depression.
In a interview with the Associated Press, Dow laughed when he recounted the day he decided it was time to take the leap from acting to sculpting. He was up for a role in a TV show and a year-old executive asked, "Have you ever done comedy before," recalled Dow, co-star of one of the most classic TV comedies in history. Maybe it is time to take the art seriously. A chemist and inventor who worked as a consultant for NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Shell, his ideas helped define what is now referred to as the "Lovelock test," when searching for chemical signs of life on other planets by studying their spectra.
In the s Lovelock and microbiologist Lynn Margulis wrote of our planet as a synergistic body that self-regulates itself — the earth, the oceans and the atmosphere, as well as all living organisms on it. Named after the Greek deity, the holistic Gaia concept was described in journal articles that would form the basis of Lovelock's book, "Gaia: A New Look at Life on Earth.
In a article for the Guardian , Lovelock warned of "genocidal acts" — the proliferation of man-made greenhouse gases, and the clearcutting of rainforests — that have caused changes on a scale not seen in millions of years.
