By Cicero Estrella | [email protected] | PUBLISHED: March 21, 2019 at 2:21 pm | UPDATED: March 21, 2019 at 2:21 pm Emilia Clarke suffered two aneurysms during the early years of “Game of Thrones,” and at one point was so distressed she just wanted to “pull the plug” to end her suffering. Clarke, 32, revealed her medical emergencies for the first time in an essay for The New Yorker. After the first aneurysm in 2011, Clarke was afflicted with a condition that left her speaking nonsense and unable to recall her own name. “My full name is Emilia Isobel Euphemia Rose Clarke,” she wrote. “But now I couldn’t remember it. Instead, nonsense words tumbled out of my mouth and I went into a blind panic. I’d never experienced fear like that—a sense of doom closing in. I could see my life ahead, and it wasn’t worth living. I am an actor; I need to remember my lines. Now I couldn’t recall my name.” … [Read more...] about Emilia Clarke suffered debilitating aneurysms that left her wanting to ‘pull to plug’ on her life

By Reuters | PUBLISHED: March 21, 2019 at 8:42 am | UPDATED: March 21, 2019 at 8:51 am By Jonathan Stempel | Reuters NEW YORK – U.S. horse racing announcer Dave Johnson, who called Triple Crown races for ABC television for two decades, on Wednesday sued the makers of Bill Murray’s 2014 film “St. Vincent” for using his signature phrase “and down the stretch they come” without permission. Johnson, 77, a Manhattan resident, accused the film’s distributor Weinstein Co, the producers Chernin Entertainment and Crescendo Productions and other defendants of infringing his trademark of the phrase. The lawsuit does not name Murray as a defendant. Murray’s character Vincent MacKenna, a grumpy retiree who drinks and gambles, used the phrase “in the context of a race and in a clear attempt to imitate” Johnson, the complaint said. Johnson said this would likely confuse the public, tarnishing his rights to a phrase … [Read more...] about Bill Murray’s use of horse-racing phrase in movie draws lawsuit
By Steve Scauzillo | PUBLISHED: March 21, 2019 at 5:16 am | UPDATED: March 21, 2019 at 8:09 am After a wet winter, a warmer spring that began Wednesday will send hordes into the great outdoors just as the local snake population awakens from a long hibernation, setting up a dangerous scenario resulting in snakebites and emergency room visits, experts warned. The above-average rainfall ushered in more insects, not to mention the super blooms of wildflowers and a migration of Painted Lady butterflies — all food for rodents. This bounty creates a buffet for mice, gophers and ground squirrels, which sets the table for the Southern Pacific rattlesnake, the most common venomous snake living in Southern California mountains, canyons and even some backyards. In short, this display of nature may be great for hungry rattlesnakes — but for the unsuspecting outdoor adventurer, it’s hiker beware. Already, a person and dog were bit in separate incidents while wandering the … [Read more...] about Could February showers bring March rattlesnakes? ‘Snakebite season’ begins in California
