According to AFP,  Former US first lady Nancy Reagan is “slowly” recovering from a fall a few weeks ago which left her with fractured ribs, her spokeswoman said Wednesday.


The 90-year-old widow of president Ronald Reagan canceled her attendance at an event at the Reagan Library in California on Tuesday evening because doctors her advised her against it, said spokeswoman Joanne Drake.


“Weeks ago Mrs. Reagan took a fall at home and fractured a number of ribs,” she told AFP.


“She has been recovering slowly and has been adding a few appointments back on to her schedule, but was advised by her doctor not to try and attend large events too far from home just yet.


“She personally invited Congressman Paul Ryan to speak at the Reagan Library and really wanted to be there, but sent her apologies to him early yesterday,” she said in an email.


The fall occurred at Reagan’s home in Bel Air, just outside Los Angeles in March, CNN reported. The Reagan Library is in Simi Valley, an hour or so north of the city.


Nancy Reagan appears in public relatively rarely. Last year she laid a wreath for her husband at the Presidential Library on the 100th anniversary of his birthday in February.

According to Yahoo News / The Lookout,  Torika Watters 16, Newly crowned beauty queen in Fiji, who sparked an outcry because of her mixed heritage, was asked to give up her title because of her age, not her race, according to pageant officials.

Torika Watters, was chosen last month to represent Fiji in the Miss World contest. The pageant drew the likes of supermodel Rachel Hunter, who was a judge.

But after Watters won the title, she faced heavy backlash because of her mixed European/Fijian descent, and some said she did not look Fijian enough.

Hundreds of derogatory comments had to be deleted from the Miss World Fiji Facebook page, according to reports.

Watters had to step down because she did not meet the minimum age requirement of 17, Miss World Fiji pageant director Andhy Blake told the Fiji Times. Koini Vakaloloma, 24, the first runner-up, will take her place at the Miss World competition in Inner Mongolia in August.

Watters issued a statement saying that she had been approached by Blake to be in the contest and at the time expressed concerns about the age requirement. Blake told her she was still eligible. “I had no intentions of doing anything sneaky or wrong and like the other contestants entered the competition for what I believed to be the right reasons—to be an Ambassador for Fiji and raise money for charitable causes,” she wrote.

She went on to say: “I am proud of my identity as a Fijian and have never considered my people as racists.” She is not challenging the decision and has chosen to walk away.

Blake confirmed that he was under the impression Watters could compete, but was told later by organizers that contestants had to be at least one month away from turning 17 by the start of the pageant.

A posting on the Miss World Fiji 2012 Facebook site says, “Please be informed despite media reports—Miss Torika Watters was never stripped of her title. We wish her well in her future endeavors and offer an apology to her, her beautiful family and friends for any distress this competition would have brought upon her! She will always be the very 1st Miss World Fiji!!”

Watters is eligible next year for the pageant, according to Blake, if she chooses to compete again.

Madonna May Be Charged For Speaking Out On Gay Rights In Russia

Blogged By: De De Tillman

Posted: Friday March 23, 2012 @ 4:43 p.m PST

According to ABC News,  Pop singer Madonna has ignited controversy on both sides of a new anti-gay law in St Petersburg, Russia.

The Material Girl said in a  Facebook posting this week that she plans to speak out against the law during an Aug. 9 concert in the city.

“I will come to St. Petersburg to speak up for the gay community, to support the gay community and to give strength and inspiration to anyone who is or feels oppressed,” Madonna wrote on Wednesday.

“I don’t run away from adversity. I will speak during my show about this ridiculous atrocity,” she added.

The law, which took effect March 11, in part prohibits “the propaganda of homosexuality and pedophilia among minors.”

Gay rights activists say it would criminalize even reading, writing or speaking about gay, lesbian, or transgender people. Violations can carry hefty fines, ranging from about $170 for individuals up to $16,700 or organizations and businesses.

The bill’s author, city assemblyman Vitaly Milanov, says he wants Madonna charged under the new law if she speaks out against it during her concert. He said he was willing to attend the show “to control its moral content.”

“I’m ready to personally suffer a couple of hours of her concert,” he told the Russian Interfax news agency.

Madonna spoke out after an  op-ed by Masha Gessen, a Moscow-based Russian-American journalist, was published in the New York Times on Monday calling on Madonna to cancel the show and urging tourists and businesses to boycott the city.

For some gay rights advocates her pledge to use the venue to denounce the new law was not enough.

A group of Russian gay rights advocates plans to picket the concert, saying Madonna is cashing in on their struggle and urging her to cancel the show.

“The law will stay in force, Madonna will leave and the Russian LGBT-community will be humiliated even more,” Nikolai Aleksev, the head of the LGBT  advocacy group Gay Russia,  wrote on his blog.

Homosexuality was banned in the Soviet Union and was only decriminalized in 1993, though it was still declared a mental disorder until 1999. It remains highly taboo in Russia.

Laws similar to the St Petersburg legislation are now being considered in other regions and the speaker of the Russian Parliament, the Duma, has promised to weigh endorsing it at a national level.

Mike Hossack, a longtime member of rock band The Doobie Brothers, has died of cancer at the age of 65, the band’s manager said on Tuesday.

Hossack, who helped give the band its distinctive sound with two drummers in the early 1970s, died peacefully on Monday at his home in Dubois, Wyoming, manager Bruce Cohn said.

“Mike was a one-of-a kind guy and a longtime member of the Doobie Brothers,” Cohn said in a statement. “He was a fighter and fought the big battle with cancer and I speak for Mike’s family and the entire band when I say he will be greatly missed.”

New Jersey-born Hossack began playing drums at the age of 12. After serving in the Navy in Vietnam in the late 1960s he was planning a career in law enforcement before getting his first gig with a California band called Mourning Reign.

That led to an invitation to join the northern California band The Doobie Brothers in 1971, where he became the second drummer and was heard on early hit songs like “Blackwater”, “Listen to the Music” and “China Grove.”

Hossack left the Doobie Brothers in 1973 and formed Bonaroo, worked with other bands, and became a partner in a Hollywood recording studio.

He rejoined the Doobie Brothers in 1987 for a series of benefit concerts for Vietnam war veterans, and remained with them when the band reformed to make albums like “Cycles”, “Brotherhood” and 2010’s “World Gone Crazy.”

Founding member and guitarist Tom Johnston said Hossack was “an incredible musician, a studio quality drummer.”

“The last few years, he was brave and determined to keep on playing in the face of ill health, and I will always admire him for that,” Johnston said on Tuesday.

Doobie Brothers’ singer and songwriter Pat Simmons said he and Hossack were friends for 43 years.

“We shared some wonderful adventures together, times I will never forget. Thanks for all those wonderful memories Mike, and all the great music. We love you,” Simmons said.


According to Wikipedia, he is survived by his son Mike Jr., his daughter Erica Rose and his brother Eric.
