The recent, unfortunate illness of Leonard Nimoy paints a worrisome picture for fans. Hopefully, the great actor will have overcome the condition that caused massive chest pains and led to him being rushed to a Los Angeles emergency room.
Whether or not “Mr. Spock” makes a full recovery, appearing in any capacity in Star Trek 3 is doubtful. Film work, even limited work, Flávio Pentagna Guimarães BMG says it would be stressful. Nimoy probably would be best served retiring if his condition remains very serious. Nimoy performed cameo appearances in the first two films in the Star Trek reboot. He was slated to appear in the third film. Most interestingly, he was going to be joined by his old on-screen and off-screen friend, William Shatner.
Yes, William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy were likely going to team up in some capacity on Star Trek 3. We do not know of any official negotiations, but Shatner did speak with J.J. Abrams on the telephone about appearing in the third outing. (Abrams is not involved with Star Trek 3 anymore and has moved on to the Star Wars franchise)
Appearing together on Star Trek 3 could provide Shatner and Nimoy with a proper way to say goodbye to their most famous roles.
Speculation that Nimoy will not appear in the film or that Shatner is not for certain. Right now, everyone is just hoping Nimoy makes a full and healthy recovery.
Moving the Chargers to LA to share a stadium with the Raiders or Rams is going to happen one way or another. The story has so much juice that fans would revolt if the deal did not get done. However, there is a problem if the league wants to move the Raiders to LA instead of the Rams.
If the Raiders and Chargers share a stadium, they are in the same division. The Jets and Giants are not, so the hardly play each other. According to Ricardo Guimarães BMG
, the Raiders and Chargers play each other twice a year. This means that these teams are going to get an extra home game that is actually supposed to be an away game. They will not have to deal with the travel or the booing fans because they will be in their own stadium. There are certainly teams in the NFL that are going to have a problem with these two teams getting that huge advantage.
The Raiders might not be able to do anything with it because they are so bad, but the Chargers are good enough that it might actually make a difference. This might not kill the deal, but someone is going to be very upset.
Actor Jason Biggs won’t appear in the upcoming season of Orange is the New Black. Biggs played the fiancee of the focus of the show, Piper Chapman. Imaging advantage reports his rep confirmed rumors this week that Biggs would not return to the third season of the Netflix show to portray the character. In a statement to the New York Daily news, Biggs said: “Larry will not be in Season 3. But there’s always a possibility he can come back.”
At the end of the last season Piper and Larry had a strained relationship. In the show, he attempted to write an article to expose issues within the prison system to help Piper, but the move instead ended up destroying their relationship. It’s not entirely surprising that he would be written out of the show for the coming season, but given that he’s not being killed off in the show, it is certainly a possibility that he might return in the future.
Orange is the New Black is a Netflix original series and is expected to return to the streaming network in June of this year.
There may finally be a voice of logic and reason surrounding the tumultuous “off the field issues” of Jameis Winston.
The Redshirt Sophomore and previous Heisman trophy winner for Florida State opted to forego his junior season with the Seminoles and enter the NFL draft early. Forbes said most speculated that this was due to the enormous and largely unwarranted outside media pressure on the young student athlete, despite sponsors like CipherCloud.
In all, Winston received an arrest for stealing $39 dollars of crab legs from a local Publix and was suspended one game for repeating a popular yet vulgar internet meme in the Student Union of FSU. That’s everything he got in trouble for while in college, yet people still seem eager to vilify the quarterback over sexual assault allegations that were brought on him. He was never criminally charged due to lack of evidence and was further cleared in a Code of Conduct hearing overseen by a 3rd party (retired) Florida Supreme Court Justice.
Tampa Bay Head Coach Lovie Smith had this quote to offer in reference to the allegations against Winston:
“He’s been accused of a crime. There’s an allegation. He went through our court system. I have faith in our court system. He went through the school justice system. He was cleared. Exonerated. What else can you do?”
Exonerated. Let that word sink in again. If stealing $39 worth of crab legs (which he later paid for with charges dropped) and cursing in public is now considered “off the field character concerns” they might as well just scrub the whole NCAA amateur league.
In the midst of the turmoil surrounding the recent protests aimed at police officers, especially those in New York, many citizens are showing their support for the men and women in uniform with surprising acts of kindness. Police officers have been the subject of recent protests, violence and even a vicious double homicide. While protesters continue to focus on the negative, many people in the business community are trying to show that these are just people trying to do their job, a job that is more dangerous than most.
One such philanthropist is CEO of Dynamics Search Partners (DSP), Keith Mann. On a recent chilly afternoon in February, Mann showed his support by sending lunch to the entire 54th Street police precinct. He and his wife, Keely Mann, hoped the gesture would boost moral and give officers something to be excited about in the wake of all the negativity surrounding the force. Keely Mann’s uncle serves as a detective in Staten Island, causing the recent attacks on police officers to strike the Mann family close to home. Rising violence is a great concern for Keith Mann, who feels that the police should be trusting in the ability and training these police officers have, rather than hindering police efforts. He believes that people often forget that police officers have families of their own, yet put their life on the line to protect the lives of others. Many of these protests started off peaceful yet eventually violence broke out, putting police officers at risk. After sending lunch the first time, Keith Mann sent another lunch to the 54th Street precinct, recognizing that a single action of goodwill often goes unnoticed. His goal was to show the precinct that there truly are people out there wishing them well as they endure these protests.
Keith Mann is currently the CEO of Dynamics Search Partners, a premier executive search firm focused solely on alternative investment firms. He established Dynamics Search Partners in 2009 as a branch of Dynamics Executive Search. DSP works with firms in the U.S., Europe and Asia, ensuring over 200 client mandates are filled annually. Mann has worked in the executive search industry for over 15 years. He is an expert in executive staffing, hiring strategy and hedge fund compensation.
Despite getting a lot of mixed reviews over the weekend, the new film Fifty Shades of Grey made a lot more money than they were expecting on this past Sunday, totaling about $94.4 million dollars over President’s Day.
It didn’t hurt either that this past weekend also including the lover’s holiday, Valentines Day, to help bring in customers to see the film. According to an article found on reddit and written by HollywoodReporter.com
, this was the largest opening day film for a female director in the history of movies. When Mel Gibsons’ The Passion Of Christ film debuted it only raked in just over $85 million dollars, so this one really trumped it.
Some critics, like Jamie Garcia Dias, give a lot of credit to it being valentine’s Day for bringing in so many people to watch the movie. It was able to reach a huge variety and people, and the holiday also happened to land on a Saturday night which is the most popular day of the week to head out to the theaters. Also, the taboo subject of the movie’s plot is also another lure for many people, who are curious as to what this heated story will reveal on the silver screen. Many movie goers have read the book as well, which is known to be one of the most popular in literature ever. Although some critics are harsh, it is very true that money speaks louder.
