Tuti Yusupowa, 128-year-old Uzbekistan Great Grandma, Is World Oldest's People

world oldest woman Tuti Yusupowa

World verified oldest people French Jeanne Calment
Jeanne Calment (Wiki)

World's oldest person ever verified is France's Jeanne Calment [Wikipedia], who was born on 21 February 1875. When she died on Aug. 4, 1997, Calment aged 122 years and 164 days.

Jeanne Calment's record has probably broken by Tuti Yusupowa, a 128-year-old great great grandma from a village in a remote region of Uzbekistan. Though the birth year on her passport issued in 1997 from Uzbekistan's Interior Ministry only shows Tuti Yusupowa was born in 1880, Xinhua is reporting Ms. Yusupowa was born on July 1 of that year.

Safar Hakimov, a state official who is working a field survey to discover people aged over 100 in the central Asian country, claimed Yusupowa is the world's oldest woman.

Evan Rachel Wood: I'M Not Attracted to Mickey Rourke

Mickey Rourke Evan Rachel Wood
Evan Rachel Wood and Mickey Rourke are an item? Evan Rachel Wood, creepy singer Marilyn Manson's former girlfriend, was romantically linked to The Wrestler co-star Mickey Rourke by Fox News's gossip column Pop Tarts after its spies "spotted" the pair smooching on the recent SAG award after-party.

21-Year-Old Evan Rachel Wood Busted Making Out With Movie Dad

Stranger things have happened - after all, this is Hollywood. Evan Rachel Wood, 21, hit headlines last year after she started dating Marilyn Manson (19 years her senior) but since their split in December has she now moved on to 56-year-old veteran actor Mickey Rourke?

The two attended Grey Goose’s Official SAG after-party at the Shrine on Sunday evening but were spotted leaving together enroute to the later after party at the Four Seasons Hotel. According to Pop Tarts spies, the actress went upstairs with Rourke (whose second marriage ended over a decade ago) when he suddenly grabbed her for a lip-lock in the outside area of the swanky five-star hotel.

However, Evan Rachel Wood denied such alleged affair with Mickey Rourke, she told Rolling Stone, "I'm not attracted to him, he's too old for me. Nothing ever happened and nothing ever will."

Nevertheless, Rachel Wood was indeed seen passionately kissing Rourke's cheek (picture) at the Venice Film Festival in May, 2008. [Image: Youtube.com/Dose.ca]

Out of Sorts

During finals week last December, I watched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. At one point of the movie, Clementine says to Joel, "I'm all out of sorts." This made me giddy because I knew the true meaning behind the phrase, which I learned in Magazine Design class. So it turns out, back in the olden days, printers used metal sticks engraved with letters to print things with. Those metal sticks were called sorts. So if you were out of a certain letter, you'd say you were out of sorts. Hence the saying.

Yang Xin, Zhu Haiyang's Virginia Tech Decapitated Victim

Yang Xin (or Xin Yang, 杨欣 in Chinese), was Zhu Haiyang's Virginia Tech decapitated victim.  So far it's unknown what's the motive behind Zhu Haiyang's horrific and gruesome slaying against Yang Xin who was said to a Canada-educated First Degree holder. But here are unofficial counts read from a post at C3online.cn.

Yang Xin, Zhu Haiyang Virginia Tech Decapitated Victim
Yang Xin (or Xin Yang) arrived only 13 days in US when murdered

Yang Xin, 22, from Beijing, just arrived at Virginia Tech for studying accounting on January 8. On that day, it was said Zhu Haiyang picked her up. And in the following days, Zhu temporarily accommodated Yang as the latter could not find a house on campus during the Winter break. During this short period, Zhu Haiyang had developed affectations on Yang Xin, but later only found she had an engaged boyfriend in China and would get married soon, as a consequence, Zhu resorted the violence to end Yang's life.

Update: Yang Xin graduated from Canada's Memorial University.

An alumnist of Memorial University has been murdered in the United States. Memorial's Department of Student Affairs says 22 year old Xin Yang of Beijing graduated from Business at Memorial in 2007, and worked here in the city for a short time. 2 weeks ago she began her graduate studies in accounting at Virginia Tech. According to Virgina Tech's website, on Wednesday evening, Yang was attacked by another student with a knife in a campus restaurant. The suspect - a 25 year old male doctoral student, was charged with first degree murder. [Vocm.com]

We said in the earlier post, Zhu Haiyang's previous private life was a little messy, it seemed so did Yang Xin.  Citrus1111 said in a message on Hoopchina.com Yang had a nickname called "Socket" when studying in Canada, hinting she might have made some boyfriends there and had sexual intercourses with them.

Virginia Tech Slaying

Zhu Haiyang (朱海洋 in Chinese),once hailed as a model student by his previous school--Shanghai Ocean University, is now a first-degree murder. Zhu Haiyang was alleged of decapitating fellow Chinese national, Yang Xin (杨欣 in Chinese)using a kitchen knife in Virginia Tech yesterday January 23, 2009.

At approximately 7:00 pm Wednesday (0000 GMT Thursday), Yang Xin, a 22-year-old graduate student from Beijing, was killed at an Au Bon Pain cafe on the Virginia Tech campus in Blacksburg, Virginia, university officials said.

They added that emergency contact records suggest that Yang and the student who murdered her, Zhu Haiyang from Ningbo, China, knew each other. According to officials, witnesses said Zhu, 25, attacked Yang with a knife.

"There were seven witnesses in the cafe. There had been no argument, no shouting" when the young woman was attacked, said Virginia Tech spokesman Mark Owczarski, confirming that Yang had been decapitated.

The Collegiate Times, the university's newspaper, said police received a 911 emergency call minutes after the assault and the officer who arrived at the scene found Yang's head had been cut off. The murder weapon, a large kitchen knife, was found at the scene.

In a copy of a police affidavit published by the Collegiate Times, the officer said that when she arrived at the scene she found Zhu holding Yang's head in his hand.

"This is horrible and tragic. Especially when we know that Virginia Tech has got its share of hardship and horror," Owczarski said.

[...]

Zhu was charged with first-degree murder and was being held at a county jail. He had not had a record with university or local police, the school indicated.

Yang had arrived at Virginia Tech in early January to begin studies in accounting. Zhu was a PhD graduate student in agriculture and applied economics. [AFP]

Pictured: Zhu Haiyang was photographed on his convocation at Shanghai Ocean University (上海海洋大学,the six large Chinese characters in the pic) which was calligraphied by Jiang Zemin (the three smaller Chinese), the former Chinese President.

This is an extreme sad sorry for me, because we know something about Zhu before from a close friend who once studied together with him at the afore-mentioned Shanghai university. Although Haiyang is a talented student, especially doing very well in English, his private life is a bit messy. Because he is handsome, Zhu Haiyang was attracted to some of female course mates when doing his Master Degree, several of whom even might have one-night stand with him. Zhu's father is a Professor teaching at a University in China.

If Anne Hathaway eventually would have been 2009 Oscars' Best Actress, wish Angelina Jolie would not give her another "side eye"? :-).

The Frozen Hudson


Along the cold Hudson River somewhere in upstate New York.

On my way back to Boston after a lovely month in New York, we went through the Lincoln Tunnel and, for some reason, back over the George Washington Bridge. I looked over at the Hudson River, the love of my life, and it was strange seeing ice there. It made sense that the Hudson would be frozen upstate, but I never think of it happening in the city-proper. I think I could also see the plane somewhere along the midtown seawall, too.

The New E

This entry might be 15 days late, but, oh well.

So New Year's Day, I headed back to Queens from Brooklyn. I took my regular route--the G to Court Square and then catch the E all the way to home. After waiting ten minutes for the E train at the transfer point, guess what should come my way but a brand new E train! I'm used to the new trains for those other lines, but for the E train? I consider that line to be my second train, after the F train, because I rely on it so much, so it was strange taking the swanky train all the way home. What was even weirder was seeing my own stop on the fancy electronic route tracker. Oh, the changing face of the MTA.

Jennifer Garner No.2 Baby Name Meaning: Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Named Second Daughter Seraphina Rose Elizabeth Affleck

Jennifer Garner Pictures, Images and Photos
Jennifer Garner and daughter Violet Anne picture embedded from Photobucket

Jennifer Garner and husband Ben Affleck have named their second daughter Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, who was born on January 6 in a Los Angeles hospital.

The couple didn't reveal the meaning behind the name of the newly-born baby girl. But Pamela Redmond Satran, the baby names' expert authored the Baby Name Bible, who also runs Website Nameberry, tells the possible meaning of Violet Anne's little sister's name on her web site:

Seraphina’s name, which means fiery or ardent in Hebrew, comes from the Seraphim, the high order of six-winged angels. Spelled Serafina in Spanish and Italian, this elaborately feminine name is in step with the Isabellas and Gabriellas so popular today, yet is far more distinctive.

Jen and Ben have proven their baby naming know-how with this gorgeous choice, a great match for Violet, and it’s sure to rise up the popularity list along with that of her big sister.  Much more unusual than Violet, Seraphina hasn’t ever appeared in the Top 1000 of the Social Security list in the past century.

Rose is the middle name du jour, a flower name match for Violet.  And, like many young Americans following the British tradition, the couple has chosen two middle names (although some people have already expressed the objection that it wasn’t fair for this baby to get one more than her big sister).

Seraphina hasn’t appeared much in popular culture references, though a couple of its variations have.  With the Latin  Serafina spelling, it was the name of the passionate heroine of Tennessee Williams The Rose Tattoo, and just last year it was a  character played by Eva Green in The Golden Compass.  It’s also reminiscent of Sarafina, the South African hit musical that played on Broadway in the 90s.

Victoria, 34 and mother-of-three, reveals her stunning figure in the first batch of the Armani lingerie ads campaign photoshoots.

But, as you know well, nowadays it's a digital era, and anyone can be made to look good with lighting and air-brushing work using the Photoshop-like software(s). So, Posh Spice possibly has been brushed.
