Lindsay Lohan is once again making headlines – shocking. Since the troubled star entered the Betty Ford Center recently, we learned that she would be on lockdown, and that her “need” for Adderall was being re-evaluated. Now, rumor has it that the Punk’d star’s Adderall supply has been cut off, and she has already gained 5 pounds because she can’t stop eating!

Miki Nozawa, 57, was killed while on vacation on the German island of Sylt. The chef died of a brain hemorrhage after the fight Sunday night, Sylt Chief Public Prosecutor Rüdiger Meienburg said.
Love had lost about 20 pounds before receiving the diagnosis about two weeks ago then gained about half of it back, Richard Kopelman, his agent, said.
Jurors failed to reach a verdict after about two hours Tuesday and were scheduled to resume deliberations Wednesday in the trial of 35-year-old Ricardo Woods of Cincinnati. Woods is accused of shooting David Chandler in the face and neck on Oct. 28, 2010, as he sat in a car. Chandler was left paralyzed from the neck down and hooked up to a ventilator, dying about two weeks later.
Oldest water on earth, Water found in a deep, isolated reservoir in Timmins, Ont., has been trapped there for 1.5 billion to 2.64 billion years — since around the time the first multicellular life arose on the planet — Canadian and British scientists say.
The water pouring out of boreholes 2.4 kilometres below the surface in the northern Ontario copper and zinc mine is older than any other free-flowing water ever discovered. It is rich in dissolved gases such as hydrogen and methane that could theoretically provide support for microbial life, the researchers report in a paper published Wednesday online in the journal Nature.
“What we can be sure of is that we have identified a way in which planets can create and preserve an environment friendly to microbial life for billions of years,” said a statement from Greg Holland, the Lancaster University geochemist who is the lead author of the study.
“This is regardless of how inhospitable the surface might be, opening up the possibility of similar environments in the subsurface of Mars.”
His Canadian co-authors included Barbara Sherwood Lollar and Georges Lacrampe-Couloume at the University of Toronto; Greg Slater at McMaster University in Hamilton; and Long Li, who is currently an assistant professor at the University of Alberta, but worked on the project while at the University of Toronto.
Some Canadian members of the team are currently testing the water to see if it contains microbial life — if they exist, those microbes may have been isolated from the sun and the Earth’s surface for billions of years and may reveal how microbes evolve in isolation.
Microbes that have been isolated for tens of millions of years have been found in water with similar chemistry at even slightly deeper depths below the surface in a South African gold mine, using hydrogen gas as an energy source, the researchers noted.
The researchers estimated how old the water was based on an analysis of the xenon gas dissolved in it. Like many other elements, xenon comes in forms with different masses, known as isotopes. The water in the Timmins mine contained an unusually high level of lighter isotopes of xenon that are thought to have come from the Earth’s atmosphere at the time it became trapped.
The Earth’s atmosphere used to contain a lot more of the lighter xenon, but it is thought to have been destroyed by the high levels of ultraviolet radiation and the bombardment of asteroids on the surface of the Earth during the planet’s first few hundred million years. Geological evidence from air trapped in ancient rocks has helped map the relationship between the amount of lighter xenon in the atmosphere and the age of the Earth at the time.
The study was funded by grants from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, the Canada Research Chairs program, the Natural Environment Research Council in the U.K., and the Deep Carbon Observatory.
Although the water found in the Timmins mine is older than any other known reservoir of flowing water, it is not the oldest water ever found. Water trapped inside tiny bubbles within rocks has been dated to be billions of years old. However, tiny droplets completely encased in rock can’t support life.
Vikings move QB, The Minnesota Vikings have moved QB Joe Webb to a full-time wide receiver slot as the debate behind the team’s quarterback dilemma now comes to a close. Head coach Leslie Frazier announced the decision to move Webb to the outside on Wednesday.
Webb’s been an NFL backup quarterback since joining the league in 2010. The Birmingham, Alabama native’s last start, on the other hand, came in the Vikings wild-card appearance last season.
He was given the start due to an injury to Christian Ponder near the end of the season. The Vikings went on to lose the game 24-10 to the Green Bay Packers and Webb’s stat line didn’t add up to a future starting role.
The 26-year completed just 11-of-30 passes in the game for 180 yards with one touchdown and an interception. His struggles throwing the football should have been expected as his last pass in an official game before the wild-card came during the Vikings’ season finale against the Chicago Bears in 2011.
Now the Vikings move QB Joe Webb to a receiver slot as the team is set at his formal position with the signing of Matt Cassel. Christian Ponder has secured the starting role while Cassel will serve as his backup.
Most quarterbacks would get the boot when there’s no room for them on the roster, but Webb has always been an athletic and speedy player who’s talent could transition well to the outside.
The Vikings are looking to revamp their receiving core after losing Percy Harvin this offseason. Harvin was traded to the Seattle Seahawks after four seasons in Minnesota where he finished with 3,302 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns.
That’s a lot of production lost for Leslie Frazier’s offense, though he immediately addressed the issue in the NFL Draft. The Vikings selected wide-out Cordarrelle Patterson from the University of Tennessee in the first round, who will accompany Webb as he transitions to the receiving game.
Joe Webb was informed of the move just after the Vikings selected Patterson in the NFL Draft, and the Alabama-Birmingham (UAB) product told the Star-Tribune that he believes he can make the right adjustments.
“Coach brought me in the office and talked to me about the different plans they had and stuff,” he said to Sid Hartman of the Star-Tribune. “I haven’t played [receiver] since my rookie minicamp, but I think I can adjust to it pretty good. You just have to put in a lot of work.”
With the Vikings moving QB Joe Webb to a receiver slot, do you believe they’re desperate to find offense after losing a key contributor like Percy Harvin?
Chef killed over meal, A chef has been killed over a meal on the German holiday island of Sylt, according to reports.
Popular Japanese chef, Miki Nozawa, is said to have gotten into a dispute with two guests about a dish of fried noodles.
In the resulting altercation, Nozawa suffered serious injuries and was rushed to an intensive care unit at a local hospital, according to Ulrike Stahlmann-Liebelt, the senior public prosecutor from the nearby town of Flensburg.
However, despite the medical team’s best efforts, the 57 year old chef died from his injuries. An autopsy is now being conducting to determine the exact cause of death, authorities have said on Tuesday.
Local police have identified two suspects in the incident, and are currently hunting a 36 and 50 year old. The pair are reportedly skilled workers, according to AAP.
The news has stunned locals, and according to local media reports the argument between the chef and the duo was sparked by a dish of fried noodles that contained beef and vegetables in it.
The chef had prepared the food for the two customers, however, when they received the dish the pair complained that it had not been prepared to their satisfaction and they demanded a complete refund and refused to pay.
According to German publication, Bild, the two customers then left the restaurant without paying. That appeared to be the end of the incident, however, later that night the Japanese chef met the pair again at a local table dancing bar, and their argument continued and escalated significantly.
A fight is said to have ensued and the chef was said to have taken a blow to the head. He was rushed to the hospital and according to local reports he suffered brain injuries and internal bleeding.
Big Bang Theory finale, In today’s television landscape, it’s not always easy to compete with dangerous meth chefs, adulterous advertising executives, medieval warring factions or an aristocratic British dynasty. However, over on veteran network CBS, a little band of Caltech science geeks (and the ladies who love them) has been giving the aforementioned cable serial dramas a run for their money. After six stellar seasons, The Big Bang Theory continues to win over audiences young and old, regardless of their ability to differentiate Star Wars from Star Trek.
A few days before he headed to New York for the upfronts, Simon Helberg – who plays the bowl-haircut-sporting, tight-pants-wearing engineer and mama’s boy Howard Wolowitz – checked in with Rolling Stone from L.A. to discuss the sitcom’s comedic “gold mine” and to tease what’s ahead for Leonard, Sheldon, Raj, Howard, Penny, Amy and Bernadette on tonight’s season finale.
Howard’s had a pretty incredible season on The Big Bang Theory. He went into space, started a life with new wife Bernadette and he came to terms with his father’s abandonment. What’s next? How can you top that?
[Laughs] It’s a tough thing to top! Yeah, exactly, you end last season with a wedding and a trip to space, and I think we actually managed to top it this season. The first few episodes where I’m floating around up [in space], I mean, it’s pretty groundbreaking for a sitcom, particularly to do it in a way that is organic to these characters. What I think is so brilliant about the writers is the way they’ve paced it out, and the way they’ve let things naturally occur. Who would’ve thought that – at least in the first couple of seasons – that this amateur, failed lothario would be the first guy to get married, and that there would actually be a girl that could tolerate him other than his mother and make him a better person. So it’s very cool to see that and to have it be believable and not to have it change the dynamic to such a degree where it becomes a different show, where it’s actually expanded the possibilities.
The Big Bang Theory has been renewed for a seventh season, so what are your hopes going into it?
Well, in terms of my character, they’ve opened up some doors with his estranged father, and I think it would be interesting to see how that manifests itself again, maybe whether we get to meet the father, or whether there’s more information that we learn about him and how Howard deals with that. And Howard and Bernadette are still newlyweds, so there’s a whole world of possibilities for what can go wrong in a marriage and what can go right. Also, the other characters are really starting to have an unbelievable amount of new layers, whether it’s Sheldon and Amy [when they played an erotic yet tender version of Dungeons and Dragons on last week's episode] – I thought was one of the best scenes in our show. I loved that; I think it was so clever and real and true, and then Penny and Leonard are also finally, actually at a nice point – although things in the finale get turned on their head slightly. Raj is really taking big steps with Lucy, so the show feels fully formed to me now. It feels like we have this gold mine here, and we’re just in it and enjoying it.
You’ve had some pretty incredible guest stars over the years: Stephen Hawking, Bob Newhart most recently. Anyone in particular you’d still like to get on the show?
I love when they bring in the iconic science guys or science-fiction guys, but I also love when they just bring on great actors, like when we have Christine Baranski [Leonard's mom] or Laurie Metcalf [Sheldon's mom]. We’ve been so lucky this season – and all the seasons. I mean, I think there can be fun with someone from Star Wars. I’ve actually talked to Mark Hamill about it – I know he watches the show – so whether he came on as himself or played a character, I think there could be something there. We haven’t tapped all the iconic science-fiction characters yet.
You didn’t have any scenes with Bob Newhart, but did you get a chance to chat with him while he was on set?
I did get to watch him rehearse and work and that was really cool. He has such a unique sensibility and delivery, and he’s still as sharp as ever, but it’s incredible because it’s his sharpness and his ability to drive a scene; it’s so understated, and it’s just a very different kind of rhythm than what is on our show and from what you see these days, but it worked like gangbusters.
Nice. In last week’s episode, you killed it in the Dungeons and Dragons scene with your impressions of Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, Nicolas Cage and even Kunal Nayyar (Raj). Your talent with impersonations had already been well-established on talk shows and other outlets, so whose idea was it to write this into an episode? Was it you? The writers? A collaboration between the two?
It was not me. I think they all knew that I did that, whether it was from Studio 60 or talk shows. I never pushed for it; I’m a little more reserved about it, but I actually think, and I could be wrong, that Steve Molaro, who’s been running the show this season, told me that Chuck [Lorre, Big Bang co-creator] suggested it. I guess I thought he would’ve shied away from that, because when I first looked at it, I did have a concern of like, “OK is this going to read too much like, ‘Hey, this guy can juggle flames! So let’s write it into this episode!’” But that was just my own insecurity, because I think that it worked pretty incredibly. I watched the episode and I laughed so hard at what Jim [Parsons, who plays Sheldon] was doing while I did that stuff. In seeing it on TV, to watch Sheldon get giddy is a lovely treat. And Howard is always doing voices or he knows all the languages, so I think it’s totally within the realm of believability.
I agree, and even though it still worked for the scene, it did seem to me that Johnny [Galecki, who plays Leonard] and Jim were breaking character with their laughter.
[Laughs] Yeah, yeah, we laughed a lot during that episode, and we don’t tend to laugh much. In fact, when we had our wrap party – they always show a gag reel – like, 40 percent of it was from that episode, because it got so silly with the six of us in that room and the voices and just the logistics of rolling the dice. It was really fun, and we don’t tend to break much, but there were a few things that we just couldn’t get past – but it came out really well.
Have you ever met Pacino, Cage or Walken?
I wish. Actually, when I was young, I believe I met Nicolas Cage. I think I was probably eight, and I remember seeing him at somebody’s house – it was an event and he happened to be there. People would ask me if I was his son, because I looked like him at that point, so I do remember feeling some connection and just wanting to say, like, “Papa!” But yeah, since I’ve gotten to do all these things now, I sort of fear the moment that I see them and they’ll be like, “Yooouuuu son of a bitch!” But it’s all truly from a place of love and awe, because I wouldn’t spend that much time [starts to laugh] watching their stuff and trying to perfect their voices and mannerisms if I didn’t think they were all some of the great, genius actors of our time.
When Jim Parsons came to the Rolling Stone offices a couple of years ago, he said that when he first got the Big Bang gig, he got a book of physics and tried to study up on it but failed miserably. Did you buy Engineering for Dummies when you got hired?
[Laughs] Yeah, I had a couple of books already – I had a Richard Feynman book that was one of his more tangible, readable versions of his stuff and I had some compilations of essays by Einstein. I generally don’t feel the need to do more research than is necessary to play the part for me, to inform me. I’m interested in character and people and motivations and things like that. It’s not going to inform me to completely understand Einstein’s theory of relativity. If I have a speech about it, then I’ll learn what I need to learn to make that make sense. But I’m sure all four guys in the cast have probably the same three books sitting on our bookshelves, with the spine perfectly intact because it’s never been opened.
Can you spill on tonight’s season finale?
There is another adventure that presents itself that’s going to take one of the guys away for some time – there’s an expedition on the North Sea that Stephen Hawking’s crew is organizing, and there’s an opening, so one of the guys decides to take it, and it is obviously going to have a ripple effect throughout all the relationships on the show. Then people get jealous, people get afraid, or nervous. There’s a going-away party, and without saying anything that’s giving away too much, there’s definitely some groundbreaking events that nobody has ever seen on The Big Bang Theory that will occur in this finale. It’s an exciting one.
