More facts about Heather Locklear

heather locklear Some tabloids reported that police has arrested 47-year-old famous actress Heather Locklear. They say that she has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of prescription medication in California. H. Locklear was taken to the police where she was tested for drugs and alcohol and was later released from custody. What happened with she during last years and could lead to this behavior? Let's look to her profile in wikipedia:
The carrier was brilliant:
"She is primarily known for her television work, her most notable roles being Sammy Jo Carrington on the 1980s soap opera Dynasty, Officer Stacy Sheridan in the 1980s cop drama T.J. Hooker, Amanda Woodward on the 1990s soap opera Melrose Place, and Caitlin Moore on the sitcom Spin City."
More complicated was her personal life:
"She married Richie Sambora on December 17, 1994 in Paris. On October 4, 1997 she gave birth to their daughter, Ava Elizabeth. Locklear's representative announced on February 2, 2006 that divorce papers had been filed to dissolve the couple's marriage. In further papers filed by Sambora, it has been revealed that the couple has been separated since December 26, 2005, and that Sambora will be seeking joint custody of Ava."
So we see here that she divorce Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora after 11 years of marriage. For now they have a 10-year-old daughter. This divorce lead to depression in her life:
"In March 2008, Locklear was involved in a controversy when a 911 call was made by a caller claiming to be her doctor who said that she was trying to commit suicide. The authorities arrived at Locklear's home shortly afterwards."
These sad circumstances lead to her arrest on September 27, 2008.

South Park: Canada On Strike

south park canadaWe all know that South Park episodes are now in public access. Here a new one S12E04 "Canada on Strike". A short description here: "The head of the World Canadian Bureau leads the country into a long and painful strike and the responsibility of brokering a settlement rests with the boys." Not too hard to see where this is going, is it? Thankfully a nice songs was added to bring back the days of "Blame Canada." Two songs within a 22 minute show. The boys from South Park buy into the cause that Canada is suffering because of a lack of proceeds from the Internet revenues and decide to help Canada by staging some Internet viral videos to raise money. There was "Canada On Strike" and "What What In The Butt", the latter of which seemed a mild satire on the Matt Damon/Ben Affleck videos from Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Space experts doubt that debris from the spy satellite will hit anywhere near land. Moreover the most likely consequence would be a meteor shower of small bits of debris.
"The debris cloud would cross the dark Canadian coast north of Vancouver fifteen minutes after the shoot down," said Jim Oberg, space analyst. "I expect that some of the most energetically expelled fragments will be hitting the atmosphere all along this track. It could be a meteor shower to remember."
