Mark Wahlberg to Return to School

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies,

Mark WahlbergMark Wahlberg is going back to school.

The 41-year-old actor - who had a brief stint in prison aged 16 and has previously spoken of his behavior problems as a teenager - never finished high school, but is now embarking on an online degree program in order to complete his education, though he admits he is "nervous" about tackling some subjects.

"They had this new program in Massachusetts where you can take the courses online so I'm starting this month and getting my high school diploma. I've got to take on all the courses I've missed so I'm a little nervous. I'm going to make it happen though. I have a lot of downtime on movie sets in the trailer and stuff so I'm just going to blast through it in eight months or so hopefully."

Mark also revealed he had been in the running for a place in New Kids On The Block, his older brother Donnie's group, until he was sentenced to 45 days at Boston's Deer Island House of Correction aged 16 for beating a man.

Jonathan Saunders Thanks His Upbringing

Jonathan Saunders Spring/Summer 2011Fashion designer says his Jehovah’s Witness upbringing pushed him to succeed in the clothing industry.
The Scottish-born designer - who wowed critics with his floral designs for at London Fashion Week - admitted he hasn’t spoken to his religious parents since he left home at the age of 16 to pursue a career in fashion.

“You have to go without something to really want it. I’m quite thankful for my upbringing because of that. It pushed me to get what I want,” said Jonathan, who is renowned for his edgy geometric designs.

The 32-year-old also revealed that moving into the world of design was a shock to the system after a fashion-free childhood. Speaking about his time studying at the Glasgow School of Art, he explained, “Even the physical environment of the art school was influential - it was my first introduction to modernism.”

However he found his time at Central Saint Martins - where he graduated with an MA in printed designs - even tougher. “It was the biggest awakening. They embrace frivolity. It was a whole other level of fashion that was fascinating to me and I felt completely out of my depth,” he added.


Will Emma Watson Give Up Acting?

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Movies,

Emma WatsonCome 2011, will have starred in 8 successful Harry Potter films and generated enough money to dabble in any indie project she likes. But will we ever see the actress in a nude Broadway performance a la ?

In a recent interview, the college bound 18-year-old admitted she was uncertain where her future would take her. Since Emma never really had thoughts about getting into acting in the first place (she was only nine when they found her “out of nowhere”), she’s not sure if the profession is something she’ll eventually stick with. “Just because this has happened to me doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the right thing,” Watson said. “I’ve come from a background of lawyers and academics. We didn’t watch films in our household.”

So what’s up next for the Tale of Despereaux star? School. Although she won’t be joining Daniel on a NY stage anytime soon, Watson could still be making an extended trip to the States. It’s believed that Emma - who was seen touring Harvard a few months back - may be attending an American university in Fall 2009.

Food Network’s Chef Jeff Project Comes to a Close

Jeff Henderson

After six episodes and five weeks, Food Network’s ambitious ended Sunday night. The season finale offered up everything viewers wanted to see, a delectable combination of food, drama and happy endings. If this delicious reality dish has any flaws, it’s that the season was too short and no reunion show is being presented next week.

The project all began with chef Jeff Henderson, who served hard time for selling drugs. During his incarceration, Henderson began to learn the culinary arts. Food led him to success, and today Henderson is a well-known and award-winning cook - not to mention budding reality star. His happy experiences with food led to the Chef Jeff Project, an inspiring plan to pull six young adults out of the ghetto and into an upper-class catering business.

Britney Spears Did WHAT?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Gossip, Rumors,

Britney SpearsThis is one Britney Spears rumor even I can’t make heads or tails of. According to US Magazine, Spears is scouting around Beverly Hills for kids who aren’t her own. The report says Britney arrived at a Beverly Hills elementary school wearing revealing clothing and talked about picking up someone else’s children. One source says the pop star even seemed confused.

Arriving just before school let out in the afternoon, Spears said “I’m here to pick up my kids.” But then, “They aren’t my kids; I have a new attorney, and I came to pick them up for her.” During her visit to the school, Spears chain-smoked and “rambled,” in the words of one eyewitness. What about the children she was supposed to pick up? They never showed up. Eventually, Spears simply drove away all by herself.

So, okay, what’s going on here? Did some strange mother actually send Britney Spears to pick up her children, or was Brit just thoroughly confused? As more and more of this strange behavior manifests, I must confess to a growing concern. I may not know her, but I admit I’m starting to get a little worried about Britney Spears. Is all this just for …or is something really wrong with Brit?

Giving Back to Schools

Posted by Monica Edwards Categories: Business, Personal,

I am all for giving back in anyway we can, especially to our education system because the teachers that work tirelessly to help mold our children into responsible, educated adults should not have to worry about such things as; do they have enough pencils, calculators, books, or any other supplies in order to teach their students successfully? When did our education system get to the point that these things are constant obstacles getting in the way of a teacher doing the job they were hired for? Instead, spending time worrying about who to convince to supply new books for the school library so their kids will be reading things that are relevant to our time now instead of 50 years ago?

Calm Before the Storm

alijah
Alijah started preschool on Monday. This will have been the third school he has attended in his short span of 3 years of being-- oh, my bad, 3 and 3/4 years. The first school he attended was a private clinic mainly for children with developmental delays, and it was a wonderful place that we still miss. The teachers and therapists there were very patient, loving, and nurturing and it is the place that helped Alijah to begin to walk at the ripe old age of 28 months when most children his age had been running circles around him for months. It was a place very focused on setting a routine for the kids and Alijah became accustomed to that and to the friends he was making for the first time. He learned how to sing songs, and use more sign language than what we were teaching him at home to communicate as he barely spoke when he started there, and when he turned 3 he graduated from that school because they only treat children under 3 years of age. We then enrolled him into a public school curriculum, yet still a class that was centered around developmentally delayed children his age, as Alijah still has some speech and social delays. This school and his last school were like night and day to us. The teachers were all great, but it seemed as if they did not have as much time to give the kids the one on one attention we had grown accustomed to. I am sure the private funding in the school he came from made all the difference but to a 3 year old, that doesn't add up to a whole lotta' beans. He was used to things a certain way so it took him a while to get adjusted to the kids and new routines. Besides that fact, this was a whole new class with a whole set of new germs so Alijah was out of school more than he was in class due to catching one thing or another every other week---no exaggeration.
