Young and Restless star Cooper dies

Jeanne Cooper, a TV legend who played a lead role on the US soap opera The Young and the Restless for four decades, died on Wednesday at the age of 84, her son, the actor Corbin Bernsen, said.
Cooper’s acting career dated back to the early 1950s, but she was best known for her portrayal of wealthy matriarch Katherine “Kay” Chancellor on the popular daytime drama, a role she played from 1973 until her death.
“My mother passed away this morning just a short time ago, peaceful with my sister by her side, in her sleep,” Bernsen, who starred on the popular drama LA Law in the late 1980s and early 1990s, wrote on his Facebook page.

‘Family tree of all snake, lizard groups mapped’
Washington: The first large-scale evolutionary family tree for every snake and lizard around the globe has been created by scientists. Alex Pyron, the Robert F. Griggs assistant professor of Biology in George Washington University’s Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, along with researchers from the City University of New York and Arizona State University, has catalogued 4,161 species of snakes and lizards, or squamates.
“Squamates include all lizards and snakes found throughout the globe, including around 9,500 species on every continent except Antarctica, and found in most oceans,” said Pyron. “This is everything from cobras to garter snakes to tiny geckos to the Komodo Dragon to the Gila Monster. They range from tiny threadsnakes that can curl up on a dime to 10 feet monitor lizards and 30 foot pythons. They eat everything from ants to wildebeest,” Pyron added.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
