Jared Leto Leads Silence for Typhoon Haiyan Victims

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Kind Acts,

Jared LetoJared Leto led a minute's silence at the MTV EMAs for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

The rocker - whose band 30 Seconds To Mars won the award for Best Alternative act - asked for the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam to be quiet for 60 seconds in remembrance of the estimated 10,000 people killed by the devastating storm which swept across the islands on Friday.

"If we can be part of the solution rather than the problem then that's a wonderful thing and there's a terrible tragedy just affected a great number of people, many people have died, many people are displaced and they are in turmoil right now. So as we celebrate in one part of the world its completely legitimate and appropriate to send an acknowledgement their way. We're in a very fortunate situation right now and the tables can be turned very quickly."

When asked if there should be a benefit for those affected, he added, "I'm not in charge of anything, but if I had my way of course. You help if you can. Obviously we are fortunate to be here and not in some incredible giant storm that's gonna rip our houses and lives away from us. It's nice when people do that, it's solidarity."

According to website Perez Hilton, Bruce - who plays the film's hero, John McClane - was back in his hotel at the time of the disaster, but rushed back to the set to help clear equipment from the fire's dangerous path.

person finder 2011

In the wake of the devastating 8.9 magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunamis in Japan, Google has launched a version of its Person Finder tool for Web users looking friends and loved ones in the affected region.

The tool is available in English and Japanese. Users can click on the "I'm looking for someone" link or the "I have information about someone" link and enter what they know. Search by name or parts of a name, or - if you have information - enter the family or given name to create an entry.

Google stressed that all data entered is available to the public and viewable and usable by anyone. The search giant also does not review or verify the data entered into the system; after the immediate crisis has passed, Google archives the data. At this point, the system is currently tracking about 7,200 records.
