Quote:Lloyd Carr Sighting He was not directing traffic, yelling at the wait staff and the cooks nor pulling over other drivers - he was simply eating breakfastThe best part about this sighting on Sunday morning was that there was nothing remarkable to write about. Michigan handily defeated Purdue just 16 hours previously, and Lloyd and another couple were sitting down to have breakfast and a chat - sans newspaper - sans radio - sans media of any kind.He was wearing the South Sydney Rugby Rabbitohs Team jacket given him by Russell Crowe and a smile.Pure Class.

Quote:Jailed T.I., West, Common Win 2 Awards Sun Oct 14, 6:43 AM ET Despite rapper T.I.'s absence, the show went on at the second-annual BET Hip-Hop Awards even when he was scheduled to perform. The self-proclaimed "King of the South," who was up for nine nominations, won two awards. But he couldn't accept any trophies or make the planned performance after being arrested by federal authorities early Saturday. T.I. was taken into custody in a shopping center parking lot where federal officials said he planned to pick up machine guns and silencers he had his bodyguard buy for him. Even though the Atlanta-based rapper was present at the Civic Center, where the event was held, he became noticeably absent from the red carpet festivities before the show. The news of T.I. being arrested rippled throughout the event. Rapper KRS-One, who received BET's "I am Hip Hop" Icon Award, learned about the raid just before he showed up. KRS-One, whose real name is Lawrence Parker, said the fellow rapper's legal woes should not reflect on the industry as a whole. "I'm saddened anytime I hear of a hip-hopper being locked up or somehow stunted in his life or his growth," he told The Associated Press. "I hope he wasn't into nothing crazy." Chicago rapper Common, who won the CD of the year award along with T.I., tried to lend his support. "I salute my guy T.I., who also won, wherever he is," said Common, while raising up his trophy. He also won lyricist of the year. Other artists who were supposed to perform with T.I. still pulled off the performance. As Wyclef Jean stood on stage to enact T.I.'s song, "You Know What It Is," host and comedian Katt Williams pranced across the stage dressed like T.I. trying to impersonate him as the crowd burst into laughter. Alfamega still took the stage with Busta Rhymes for the song "Hurt." As the two rapped, many of the audience members stood seemingly puzzled at T.I.'s absence. Kanye West was a winner in two categories best live performance and hip-hop video. After West got his trophy for best hip-hop video, he said he thought the video for UGK's "International Players," featuring OutKast, should have been chosen over his. "I didn't deserve this award above them. They do instead of me," said West, who is typically known more for comments that critics call arrogant. But Big Boi of OutKast returned the favor to West by giving him the award back saying, "You worked too hard for this. No, you deserve it." The Hip Hop Awards will air on Oct. 17.

Quote:Steve Irwin made a professorNovember 8, 2007 Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin will be posthumously awarded with an adjunct professorship at the University of Queensland.The university last year revealed it was about to make Irwin an adjunct professor in its School of Integrative Biology in honour of his scientific research, but he died before he could accept the award.Irwin's wife Terri will accept the award on November 14, when the university holds a free public lecture about crocodile research.UQ crocodile expert and Irwin's close friend, Professor Craig Franklin, said the presentation would be moving given the Crocodile Hunter had been killed before the honour could be presented."Notification of the honour was waiting for Steve at Australia Zoo, but sadly he never returned to find out the good news," Professor Franklin said."This presentation now gives us the opportunity to publicly recognise his remarkable contribution to research and conservation."Irwin's widow Terri will accept the award on the eve of the first Steve Irwin Day."I am very proud because this honours Steve as a scientist in his own right and recognises Steve's ongoing research work," she said in a statement.Professor Franklin's lecture is entitled "Tracking Crocodiles in Three Dimensions".He worked with Irwin as part of the Crocs in Space crocodile satellite tracking project set up in Queensland five years ago.The team's discoveries forced scientists to rethink theories about how the reptiles live.They included the fact that large male crocs were not "king of the river system" but were instead social creatures.AAP

Quote:Bale's weighty strategyBy: Claire SutherlandNovember 22, 2007 12:00amON Christian Bale's resume of dark, interesting, indie film choices, one project stands out like a sore thumb: a little comic book adaptation called Batman Begins.Nestled in among The Machinist, American Psycho and the Bob Dylan biopic I'm Not There, the Batman movie, and its forthcoming sequel, The Dark Knight, seem incongruous choices. "I think it's nice to have sore thumbs sticking out," Bale interrupts. "This is a really interesting Batman. I just couldn't get my head around why they'd never made this version and had instead made those ridiculous versions," Bale says.But if Bale has stepped into the realm of the Hollywood superhero with Batman, he's steadfastly stuck to his philosophy with his other choices. His latest, Rescue Dawn, is a gruelling true story shot in the jungles of Thailand. Bale plays Dieter Dengler, a US pilot shot down over Laos and captured in 1966. His determination to escape forms the basis of Rescue Dawn. Directed by Werner Herzog, it was a strictly no-frills affair. Rescue Dawn was shot in reverse to allow the actors - Bale, Steve Zahn and Jeremy Davies - to begin the shoot thin and gradually put on weight and shorten their hair and beards as it progressed. "That was my idea. Knowing from experience it's a lot easier to put on weight," Bale says.That experience includes Bale's famous efforts to lose 28kg from an already thin frame to play the chronic insomniac character in 2004's The Machinist. "Being a low-budget thing (Rescue Dawn), it's not like we could stop and take a break and gradually lose the weight," he says. "But also, from my point of view, I preferred doing it that way because you have the joy of putting on weight during the movie instead of the horror of, 'Oh my god I've got to lose weight'." Rescue Dawn caps off a good year for Bale, following on from the success his western - 3:10 To Yuma with Russell Crowe - has enjoyed in the US. "I like the way he works," Bale says of Crowe. "We got along really well. Because of that it was one of the best working relationships I've had with another actor and I like him personally. He's a good guy." And Bale is happy to put his money where his head is. "I was walking round for some time with a baseball cap that has the South Sydney Rabbitohs all over it. I'm kind of a sandwich board," he says with a laugh. A rugby league fan then? "It takes somebody who I know personally, who has an interest in it and love for it like Russell, to perk me up for it. I follow it whenever I'm with Russell."
