Daniel Von Bargen From Seinfeld Has Passed Away

Hollywood has lost another one of its notable people this past Tuesday, as actor Daniel Von Bargen who was most known for his role on Seinfeld died March 3rd. He was 64 years old at the time of his passing, and his death is directly related to a long time illness that he has had.

According to an article found on reddit and written by TheWrap.com, Von Bargen played the character of Mr. Kruger on Seinfeld also had roles in a few other shows and movies such as “Malcolm in the Middle” and “Super Troopers”. Apparently a couple of years ago he made the news when he called up 911 and told them that he shot himself in the temple of his head.

Marcio Alaor BMG knows that it is truly sad to lose so much talent from the entertainment field in a short period of time. Over the last twelve months or so we have lost such popular people like Robin Williams, Joan Rivers, and also recently Leonard Nimoy. Von Bargen may have suffered from diabetes for a long time, and he was also unwilling to get some of his toes amputated. Fortunately his show Seinfeld where he played a dumb boss will forever keep him connected to generations to come, as it is safe to say that old sitcoms will never go out of style again with the release of so many DVDs and streaming media services.

Michael Biehn to Possibly Reprise Hicks in Fifth “Alien” Film

While “Chappie” may be opening this weekend, director Neill Blomkamp’s plans for the “Alien” film franchise have taken over much of the press media. While little is known about the plot of “Alien 5,” initial remarks indicated that it would negate the existence of “Alien 3″ and “Alien: Resurrection;” Blomkamp later clarified that he would not undo the events of the third and fourth films within the “Alien” franchise.

While Sigourney Weaver’s role with the film is everything but official, it’s still unclear as to whether or not the other actors would be returning to fill their character’s shoes again. Corporal Hicks was featured in one piece of Blomkamp’s concept pieces, depicted with an acid-scarred face alongside a battered Ripley and readying for an impending assault. The abysmal-selling “Aliens: Colonial Marines” from 2013 ignored Corporal Hicks’ death from “Alien 3;” that event means that Hicks is perfectly able to remain alive for Blomkamp’s film.

When asked about the chances of Michael Biehn’s return to the franchise as Hicks, Blomkamp remarked that it would be a hopeful outcome. Alexei Beltyukov knows that Biehn has already gone on record as being hugely thrilled with news of a new film and the opportunity of climbing back into the role. Given how “Alien 3″ gave hugely uneventful sendoffs to characters like Hicks, New, and Bishop, the return of Corporal Hicks to the franchise would likely earn back several fans of the series.

Head Transplants Could Take Place in Two Years

If you suffered from a fatal disease in your body, but your mind was still healthy, would you want your head transplanted onto a donor body so ‘you’ could continue to live? You may have that option two years from now.

Italian surgeon Sergio Canavero, from the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group, says the grafting procedure is will soon be ready for it’s ground-breaking trial two years from now. Doctor Canavero recently published the details of how he would perform what some are referring to as the Frankenstein-style procedure in Surgical Neurology International journal.
According to Brad Reifler the procedure would entail the cooling of the both the head and donor body to prolong the viability of both. Tissue, blood vessels and lastly the spinal cord would be severed from the diseased body to free the head. Once the head was removed from the diseased body, it would then be painstakingly re-attached to the donor body. a four month recovery coma would then follow to allow healing to take place. A full recovery and ability to lead a normal life could take up to one year if the head transplant was a success.

Leprosy in Florida – May Be Caused by Armadillo Encounter

Most of us have never seen someone with leprosy and know very little about it because the disease is rare in the United States. Armadillos just may change that. Three new cases of leprosy have been reported in Florida, two of which had contact with an armadillo.
It’s not a secret that armadillos carry leprosy, but only certain types. The common five-banded armadillo does not carry the disease. Only the less common nine-banded one carries the dreaded disease.
Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s Disease, is easily treated and cured with antibiotics. Astonishingly, only 5% of the population can contact leprosy, the other 95% are immune to the disease. Few cases exist today, especially in the United States. Paul Mathieson (Slideshare.net) has read that the few cases which do occur on American soil happen in Florida, Louisiana and Texas, which are states that have provide the natural habitats for armadillos and have the highest concentration of the amored-covered mammals. It’s not unusual for people in these three states to have daily sightings of armadillos on their property, to keep them as pets or to kill them and have them as a main course at mealtime.
Leprosy causes an infection of the skin and nerves just under the skin. A person with leprosy doesn’t feel sensations of pain, heat or cold and thick patches of white skin may develop.

Rocky Faces Tough Battles in Creed

Plot details are emerging about the new Rocky Balboa film, Creed. Based on an official synopsis from the studio, the standard plot of Rocky training Apollo Creed’s son has been confirmed. Fans like Haidar Barbouti have heard that a bit of the dramatic elements of the film have also been revealed and they make for an interesting endeavor.

First, the training is not going to just cover the physical aspect of getting Creed Jr. ready for a big battle in the ring. The training is also going to be about developing the heart of a fighter. A lot of people try their hand at boxing. How many of them have the never-say-quit heart of a fighter? Many fighters quit because they lack the “Eye of the Tiger” and this Rocky III theme is likely going to rear its head in the new film.

In a more poignant aspect, the synopsis hints that Rocky is suffering from a serious, possibly life-threatening medical condition. Could this film possibly be the last time we ever see Rocky Balboa? Will the film set the stage for his passing? We do not know and won’t know how things eventually play out until the film opens. It seems Stallone is going the same route with this film as he is with the final installment in the Rambo series.

Whether or not there is an appetite for a new Rocky movie remains to be seen. With Rambo, we get a lot of shooting and action. Rocky is all about melodrama. (Well, most of the time. Rocky IV was pretty goofy) You never know though. The Rocky series has been able to pull the right emotional strings in audiences and succeed.

Teenager’s Accomplishment Marks Horrible Truth

Noa Mintz, a 15-year-old U.S. teenager, is living a life that many teens and even adults only dream about: She is the founder of a child care agency called “Nannies by Noa” that employees, as of today, 50 babysitters and 25 nannies. She makes $480,000 a year. She has been so successful that she just had to hire a CEO, which is the same thing every corporation gets to just like Imaging advantage.

It’s an amazing feat and no one would disagree that Noa has shown great intuition and business sense by creating an child care agency that is in such demand.

Yet, there is a problem with Noa’s success story.

Although it’s true that many young people around the world perform amazing feats on their own, Noa had a lot of help. Her father is a successful investment banker who served as the guarantor for her business when she started out. Many adults, let alone teens, have fantastic ideas but can’t get the financial backing that Noa effortlessly received when she was only 12 years of age. A lot of people who commented about the story have pointed out that Noa would likely not have raised the capital for her business, let alone received other support, if her father hadn’t helped her out.

This is the horrible truth about entrepreneurship around the world: Success often occurs because of a perfect storm of events that are founded on “who” you know and not “what” you know.

“Lego Movie” Directors Share their Toys with Successors

Regardless of what the Academy says, fans of the hit animated comedy were pleasantly surprised to witness those yellow toy bricks parents have been nagging their children to pick up off the floor assemble a humorous and compelling feature film. Unfortunately, movie viewers will catch countless superhero flicks, classic 80’s film remakes, and two Lego Movie spinoffs, before joining Emmet and the rest of the Lego figurines on their next adventure.

Zeca Oliveira of BNY Mellon has learned that Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have recently offered some insight on the future of the franchise. The subsequent installment will be titled The Lego Movie Sequel, and it’s currently scheduled for a May 25th, 2018 release date. On top of the long wait time, fans may not be thrilled that the baton is being passed down to TV comedy director Rob Schrab; however, Lord and Miller have faith that his past experience will mesh well with the tone of the project. Furthermore, 2016’s Ninjago will be directed by Chris Bean, while 2017’s Lego Batman has Chris McKay calling the shots. Although uncertain whether or not these three films will exist in separate dimension or in one shared universe à la Avengers, fans can anticipate three engaging and unique productions.

Tuna Poses Massive Health Risk

For those who love to eat tuna, the time to stop consumption is right now.

A new research study published in Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry has revealed that levels of mercury in tuna are at a 50 year high. Looking at data from the last 50 years, Assistant Research Scientist Paul Drevnick and his colleagues Carl Lamborg and Marty Horgan found that mercury has increased 3.8 percent each year.

The research, funded by University of Michigan and the Fonds de recherche du Quebec–Nature et technologies, also found that this increase mostly matched the amount of mercury mankind has dumped into various environments worldwide over the same period, according to Flavio. Each time mercury is dumped, no matter where it’s dumped, it travels in water and as a gas in the air into other areas of the world including open water. Until such dumping ends, the risk of severe health issues to people consuming open-ocean fish, such as tuna, is extremely high.

Mercury is a silver heavy metal that, when absorbed into the human body, causes neurotoxicity. The subsequent damage to the human nervous system can result in mental and physical symptoms that end in debilitation or even death. It is for this reason that people were often warned not to touch the silver liquid in broken old mercury-style thermometers and why people are still warned to take care when handling compact fluorescent light bulbs.

Top Five Nominees Who Actually Showed Up to Accept Their Razzie Award

Every year, in tandem with the Oscars, another award show happens- The Golden Raspberry Awards. The Razzies, as they are known, celebrate the worst for the year. Surprisingly many winners don’t show up to accept them. However, according to Mental Floss, these are the ten winners who actually did. These are the top five.

Halle Berry was there to accept her Razzie Award for Worst Actress for the film Catwoman. Ironically, she showed up to accept her Razzie with one hand while her Academy Award for Best Actress for Monsters Ball in her other hand.

Director Paul Verhoeven showed up to accept seven Razzies for his film Showgirls. All-in-all, Verhoeven said accepting those awards was less painful than reading the reviews for the film.

J. David Shapiro received a Razzie in 2001 for the Worst Screenplay for the film Battlefield Earth. Then in 2010, Shapiro returned to accept the Razzie for the Worst Picture of the Decade for Battlefield Earth again.

In 2002, Tom Green accepted five Razzies for the film Freddy Got Fingered. He had to be dragged off the stage because he would not stop his harmonica playing during his acceptance speech.

America’s sweetheart, Sandra Bullock, received a Razzie in 2010 for Worst Actress in the film All About Steve. Fans like Susan McGalla know that Bullock showed up to accept and brought along a copy of the DVD for everyone in attendance to enjoy. Find more on McGalla at Wikinvest.com.
