Terror With a Twist
Huffington Post - over 1 year
The Ancient Greeks had a winning formula. During performances of their tragedies, acts of excessive violence and gore had to take place offstage and out of the audience's sight. Later, the actors would describe events too horrible to imagine. How does one describe a gruesome cyclops or monsters devouring helpless sailors? One might start with the words "Oh horror, horror, horror!" After all, when push comes to shove it's all about telling a story, spinning a yarn, capturing an audience's attention and keeping them hooked on a narrative. As new technologies have helped filmmakers concoct ever more ingenious special effects, audiences have progressed way beyond the kludgy kind of stop-motion animation used in 1925's The Lost World, 1953's The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms and 1955's It Came From Beneath The Sea. No more can filmmakers rely on the man-in-a-rubber-suit device (1954's Godzilla and Creature from the Black Lagoon). Steady advances in CGI technology allow ...

Ukip fails to drain Labour's byelection cup despite push for votes
Guardian (UK) - about 3 years
Nigel Farage's push north for votes stalls in the face of south Manchester loyalties They'll protect benefits, move civil service jobs to Manchester and stand up for ordinary people against millionaire politicians in Westminster. "We're the party of the working class," the flyers boast. This is not the message from Labour, but the UK Independence party (Ukip) in Wythenshawe and Sale East, as Nigel Farage's populist band of activists bid to shake up politics in the north of England. Their candidate is John Bickley, a 60-year-old businessman who grew up in Wythenshawe when it was still the biggest council estate in Europe. He believes the south Manchester area is full of "the best people, honest, god-fearing people". But he also wants politicians to give more help to an "underclass" being denied opportunities and those "sitting there watching Jeremy Kyle and drinking their life away". Bickley says many young people "just have a sense of hopelessness" and what he's hearing on the gro ...

COLIN CHANNON: Switching on the TV used to be such a simple affair...
Bognor Regis Observer - over 3 years
This week’s column is written by Paul Sitkowski. I have to disagree with the story I read in the Observer. There is absolutely nothing wrong with new gadgets quickly replacing those that are still in their boxes. I have to disagree because my 14-year-old, who controls all my access to anything technical, told me I had to. Life doesn’t get much tougher nowadays than trying to turn on the telly from a cold, standing start. Firstly, is it actually switched on, or is it on standby? Get that wrong and instead of turning on BBC 1 (boring!) you’re setting things up for a 12-month daily recording of Family Guy or The Big Bang Theory. Assuming you’ve got it right, and it’s then the question of which remote control to use. That is a real tester. Apparently, you use the one that controls the TV first, by hitting the green button top left and then choosing ‘live TV’. On screen there will then appear a number of purple boxes which respond to the other gadget – possibly Sky or BT Vision b ...

WATCH: Amy Winehouse's Ex Appears On 'Jeremy Kyle'
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Amy Winehouse's ex-husband has told of his regret at introducing her to hard drugs - but has claimed her addiction worsened when they were apart. Blake Fielder-Civil said the pair spent only four months in which they were taking drugs together as "addicts", due to his spells in jail. He spoke in an emotional interview on ITV's Jeremy Kyle Show today, telling of his tears and disbelief when prison staff told him Amy had died. Blake - who was married to the singer for two years - said of their heroin and crack use: "Out of maybe a six or seven-year relationship that me and Amy had on and off, there was drug use for about four months together." He continued: "We used heroin together as addicts for like four months, then I went to jail. Then it got a lot worse while I was in jail and then when I came out of jail I was told that if I loved her I'd divorce her and set her free and I did." The 34-year-old said he had used heroin "three or four times" before she w ...

Debbie Leigh: Is being a parent the toughest job there is?
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
This week I have spent many a minute pondering the answer to a burning question. No, not whether K-Stew and R-Patz really are back together or not. Whether being a mother (or parent) truly is “the hardest job in the world”. Set out in black and white, it looks like a pretty OTT statement. But it’s a view held by millions – all parents, obvs. And it definitely feels like it at times. So do we mums seriously think that raising our offspring is tougher than being a brain surgeon? That changing nappies is harder than running the country, or working for Anna Wintour? Maybe not. But I think we’re often so keen to emphasise the more difficult aspects of the job because we feel our efforts are undervalued by the rest of society. It’s regularly written off as a mind-numbing conveyor belt of feeding, nappy changing and nose wiping. Clearly, many of us would disagree with this job description. And if you want to do it well, there’s infinitely more to it than this. Of course, motherh ...

Celebration for centenerians
Doncaster Free Press - almost 5 years
THERE was a double celebration at Swinton Lodge Care Home as two centenarians celebrated their birthdays. The party hats were out in force  as Gertrude Shaw reached the milestone age of 100, followed by birthday celebrations days later for Annice Kenning, who turned 105. Mrs Shaw toasted her long life at a celebration attended by the Mayor and Mayoress of Rotherham, Shaun and Lisa Wright, last Thursday. But the champagne was left in the cabinet, as he new centenarian is adamant her longevity is down to a largely teetotal lifestyle. She said: “I’ve always tried to stay off the drink as much as I can. “It doesn’t do you any good. Staying off it has definitely worked for me.” Mrs Shaw, who married but did not have children, added that she has always maintained a keep fit regime. “I have always enjoyed going running and even playing football on occasion. “I ran for a club a few times, but I also used to go running as a hobby with my dad. “I’ve always enjoyed it I’d even like to do it now. ...

Before The Dark Knight Rises: 5 Essential Bane Story Arcs
Obsessed with Film - What Cultur - almost 5 years
It’s nearly time… In just two short months the third and final chapter of the Christopher Nolan/Christian Bale Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, will descend upon us from the metaphorical rooftop and then we’ll all finally know. Will it have been worth the wait? Will we be able to actually understand Bane’s dialogue? Will it trouble Joss Whedon’s ridiculously awesome The Avengers? In fact at this point, the only thing we can be sure of is that we’re most definitely due for some cowl-crunching, Bat-breaking Bane mayhem. And I say bring it on… Those of you with a less aggressive interest in Batman and his family of friends and enemies may have had limited exposure to this mysterious, complex individual. As is, you may even consider him to be an unworthy candidate for a Nolan Batman villain – especially with the bar being set so dizzyingly high from  Heath Ledger’s swansong take on the Joker. Perhaps you remember Bane’s erroneous appearance in Joel Schumacher’s even more er ...

As sickness benefit cuts take effect, thousands face hard times
Guardian (UK) - almost 5 years
Fears those too ill to work will be unable to meet basic living costs as government limits contributory allowance to 365 days It all began with a telephone call. Earlier this month, Malcolm Parker, who has not worked since his spine collapsed three years ago, was rung out of the blue by an official from the Department of Work and Pensions. There was only one question: did his wife work more than 24 hours a week? Yes, said Parker, reasoning honesty was the best policy. A fortnight later a letter dropped on the Parkers' doormat. The department wrote bluntly to say his contributory employment and support allowance (ESA) would disappear on Monday. Parker was taken aback. Having worked for 44 years in the construction trade and diligently paid his national insurance, he had expected to be protected should the worst happen. His wife Ruth was at first perplexed and then increasingly angry. Although her husband can visit the toilet by himself, with some difficulty, she comes home every lun ...

Susan Morrison: I’m pouring my energy into backing green power plans
Scotsman - almost 5 years
Off-shore wind farms look like a Good Thing on paper. They generate power from the wind, something we have a lot of in Scotland, and so therefore it would seem that it makes sense to have farms harnessing this abundant natural resource. The offshore bit seems a good idea. Every time I’ve gone near a Scottish beach there’s a gale howling in from the sea blasting sand into your face. Don’t knock it. We could market that as a treatment for tired complexions. Naturally, there are objections. Bird watchers say the big whooshing turbines do terrible damage to our feathered friends. Perhaps they do, although it hasn’t stopped the RSPB plonking a couple at their headquarters, but until the lesser spotted black backed sheerwing gull starts looking where it’s going, we’ll just have to live with it for now. On the up side, conger eels love them. The objectors wail that the turbines are terribly inefficient. They probably are, but technology has a habit of taking a few decades to get into ...

    More Details Hide Details Kyle writes a column for Pick Me Up, a women's weekly magazine published by IPC. In his column, titled Jeremy Kyle Says, Kyle adopts a frank style in responding to readers' problems that closely resembles the approach he takes on The Jeremy Kyle Show. In 2009, Kyle wrote his first book, I'm Only Being Honest, about Britain's social problems and his views on how to solve them including recounts of his past and personal life. Kyle met his first wife, Kirsty Rowley, in 1988, when he was a recruitment consultant in an agency in Bristol.
    On 11 February 2016, a decree nisi was granted after Germaine filed for divorce citing Kyle's unreasonable behaviour.
    More Details Hide Details Kyle is a supporter of West Ham United. Kyle suffers from obsessive–compulsive disorder and has stated that he "licks his mobile phone to make sure it's clean" in his book I'm Only Being Honest. Kyle has described his opinion on Broken Britain: "I think it starts with the breakdown of the family unit. Society should invest more in our kids. There should be community centres and youth clubs. And our benefits system – it's the greatest in the modern world. But there are loopholes and people taking advantage." In October 2010, Kyle appeared at the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham. He chaired "Getting Britain Back To Work" alongside George Osborne. In late 2012, Kyle was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He received chemotherapy and underwent surgery to remove the affected testicle. He was given the all-clear following surgery and returned to presenting The Jeremy Kyle Show; the recording of the show had been put on hold while Kyle underwent treatment.

Kyle has also presented Half Ton Hospital, a show about morbidly obese people in the United States.
    In September 2007, Manchester judge Alan Berg described The Jeremy Kyle Show as trash which existed to "titillate bored members of the public with nothing better to do".
    More Details Hide Details He went on to say: "It seems to me that the purpose of this show is to effect a morbid and depressing display of dysfunctional people whose lives are in turmoil. It is human bear-baiting." The judge characterised it as such "after a husband was provoked into headbutting his wife's lover in front of Kyle's studio audience". In February 2008, The Jeremy Kyle Show was again criticised in court after a man who found out during the recording of a show that he was not the father of his wife's child later pointed an air rifle at her.
