Dancing with the Stars Results 11 may 2010

Seriously, with five couples left, how do they manage to still to make this an hour long show? I wonder what we’ll get tonight as filler? UC San Diego VS Purdue in a college dance championship apparently.

As usual, we start with Len’s critique/recap of last night. Len wasn’t sure about Evan’s Waltz and he thought that Evan’s Waltz was too much to the era and not enough of the dance. Erin’s tango was fantastic and became a contender while her Rhumba had too many jerky stops and starts. Niecy and Chad are the pretenders according to Len. Chad’s posture was poor in the ballroom dance and their Latin dance was great. Niecy’s Waltz was lovely while the Latin round worried Len cause it was missing the wow factor. He think’s Niecy is the true underdog. Len was mesmerized by Nicole’s Fox Trot and thought the Paso was genius. He picks the Paso as the dance to perform tonight. I do think it’s absolutely amazing how Derik combined the dance with the era.

Up next, the gypsie kings…OOOhh and Dance center returns…awesome! The paso that went with the Gypsie Kings song = awesome! Though I still think Cheryl’s a little sleezy. Brooke’s outfit however = a disco ball with a pony tail through the middle…

Kenny Main, Len Goodman and Jerry Rice are back with Dance Center. This is one of my favorite parts. It makes me giggle and roll my eyes all at the same time. Results time. First couple in the semis is Nicole Scherzinger and Derik. No surprise there. The first couple in the bottom two is Chad and Cheryl. Again, no surprises other than the fact this is the first time they have been in the bottom two…

Now we watch UC San Diego dance the Samba. Not bad for a bunch of self-proclaimed nerds. Interesting to watch five couples coordinate a dance together. They get good feedback overall from the judges, mostly about the formations. Apparently we are voting for these guys too…they get 8’s from the judges. And break…seriously, I love this show, but I’m even getting bored with all the hubbub in the middle…Now we get to watch Purdue Mambo. Again, not too bad. They get feedback about their lack of formations 8,7,7. Don’t worry, we’ll get to see more team dancing as this is something that will follow us for the next couple shows…

Gypsie Kings are back. I wish I understood Spanish… next is the final segment of Dance Center. Not quite as funny. And back to the results. Next couple safe is Evan Lysacek and Anna. Another non-surprise. Since there is still 10 mn left, we have to break again before we get to the rest of the results…

The final results…The next couple safe is Erin Andrews and Maks, leaving Niecy and Louis in the bottom two with Chad and Cheryl. No surprises.

The couple leaving this week is Niecy Nash and Louis. I’m not surprised by this as Chad seems to have upped his game lately. I still think that he is going to be gone next week, as long as all is right with the world! Tune in next week…

Gooden Was Greatest - Briefly

By Thomas Van Riper

More legal trouble for former major league pitcher Dwight Gooden, who was recently cited by New Jersey police for driving under the influence of drugs. It's just the latest in a series of drug and alcohol incidents the former strikeout king has dealt with over the years.

It's a true shame, because no pitcher in modern history burst on to the scene the way Gooden did with the New York Mets in the mid-1980s. Not Roger Clemens, not Randy Johnson, not Greg Maddux.

As a 19-year-old rookie in 1984, Gooden's record stood at 9-8 on August 6. He finished with a flourish, going 8-1 with a 1.07 earned run average the rest of the way, including a September one-hitter over the division leading Cubs. He followed with a 24-4, 1.53 ERA season in 1985, running away
with the NL Cy Young Award.

Gooden's overall numbers from August 1984 through September 1985: 32 wins, five losses, 1.43 ERA, with 373 strikeouts in 353 innings. There may never have been a better pitcher for a season and a third. And he was still only 20. Who knew he'd never be the same again.

Rumors surfaced last week that Sandra Bullock and her husband have split after tattoo model Michelle "Bombshell" McGee claimed she had an affair with James while Bullock was making her Oscar-winning film "The Blind Side." Now, TMZ reports that they've heard from multiple sources that the two have been interviewing divorce lawyers.

On Thursday, James, celebrity motorcycle builder and reality-TV star, apologized to his wife and three children from previous relationships through a statement issued to People magazine and later obtained by The Associated Press.

"It's because of my poor judgment that I deserve everything bad that is coming my way," he said. "This has caused my wife and kids pain and embarrassment beyond comprehension and I am extremely saddened to have brought this on them."

Sandra Bullock and Jesse James Split

We all loved them, even that fight for custody, however news explodes that Sandra Bullock and Jesse James may have split.

Rumors has it that Jesse James is having an affair with "ink-stained hellcat" Michelle "Bombshell" McGee. To make the news stronger was the fact that Sandra Bullock bailed on the British Premier of "the Blind Side", the film where she recently won the Oscars for Best Actress.

The reason, they say, for the actress not attending the said premiere was due to personal undisclosed issues which were followed in by news that she moved out of the house which she and James shared.

The said rumor however continues to receive skepticism especially after the couple were seen close during awards season.

Obama to tap Yellen as Fed vice-chairman

By Alan Rappeport in New York and Tom Braithwaite in Washington

The Obama administration is set to nominate Janet Yellen, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, as vice chairman of the central bank, according to a person familiar with the selection process.

The move would fill one of three vacancies at the Fed and represents a “dovish” selection by President Barack Obama. Ms Yellen, who has been a strong supporter of Fed chairman Ben Bernanke’s near-zero interest rate policies, replaces Don Kohn, who announced earlier this month that he would retire as of June.

She served from 1994 to 1997 as a member of the Fed’s board of governors and in 1999 was chair of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers. Ms Yellen took the helm of the San Francisco bank in 1994.

The resignation of Mr Kohn, a 40-year veteran of the central bank, represented a challenge to the Obama administration, which has moved carefully in shaping the Federal Reserve at a time when the economy remains fragile. Other candidates widely speculated to replace him included Obama economic advisers Christina Romer, Austan Goolsbee or Larry Summers.

Since taking office Mr Obama’s has selected Dan Tarullo as a new Fed governor and reappointed Mr Bernanke, who faced a tough confirmation battle.

Ms Yellen, who holds a PhD in economics from Yale and is married to Nobel Prize winning economist George Akerlof, has written widely on income inequality, trade liberalisation and the goals of monetary policy.

In a speech last month in San Diego, Ms Yellen warned that a “V” shaped economic recovery might not be in the cards because the fourth-quarter surge in economic output overstated the economy’s momentum.

“The bottom line is that we are already unwinding the emergency programs we set up during the financial crisis,” Ms Yellen said. “When the day comes to start raising rates again, we have tools at the ready.”
