Forward planning is not Kim Zolciak‘s forte, and in true diva style the reality star tried to pull off a last minute extravaganza for her first wedding anniversary – despite having a year’s notice! — and RadarOnline.com has the video.
“I’m trying to get my life together. I really need to plan our anniversary,” complained Kim to best friend and hair stylist Shun Melson in an upcoming episode of Don’t Be Tardy, before dropping the bombshell: “We’ve got five days.”
Thankfully, her trusty sidekick was there to help – or calm Kim’s nerves at least.
“Shun is not only my stylist, she’s one of my best friends. She’s been around me long enough to know that I do things last minute,” Zolciak told viewers, before embarking into details of her outlandish dream night.
It was 75 years ago Thursday that the Man of Steel made his first appearance on the cover of Action Comics No. 1 in 1938.
In honor of our favorite superhero, here are 7 things you may not know about the Last Son of Krypton!
1. The first man to provide the voice for Superman was Clayton “Bud” Collyer – famous for hosting America’s very first major television game show To Tell The Truth. His vocal talents appeared on the original 1940s radio program.
3. The role of Superman has been called cursed in the past. After getting his big break in the 1952 classic movie Adventures of Superman, George Reeves’ career stalled because he was typecast as the comic book icon. He suffered from depression and reportedly committed suicide by shooting himself years later. Christopher Reeve made his debut as Superman in 1978, but years later he was paralyzed after a tragic horse riding accident. He died in 2004 aged 52.
4. The highest price ever paid for a classic comic book was for a rare and pristine copy of the first issue of Action Comics famed for its first appearance of Superman. It fetched a staggering $2.16 million at an online auction in 2011 with neither the name of the buyer nor the seller disclosed.
5. Superman was originally created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster in 1932 but was rejected many times by many publishers. When Jerry and Joe originally created Superman he wasn’t the bright blue and red caped superhero we all love today. In fact, he was a bald telepathic villain who wanted world domination!
6. Superman has been described as a god or an angel, which is a fair statement. His birth name Kal-El resembles words in Hebrew meaning Vessell of God. The suffix El, which means god, is also found in the names of angels such as Gabriel and Ariel.
7. Flying is synonymous with the Man of Steel’s super powers. However, when he made his first appearance in Action Comics No.1, he could only leap tall buildings in a single bound. Also, he wasn’t completely invincible because his skin could be broken by a powerful artillery shell.
Heartwarming stories of heroism and sacrifice are rising from the pain and destruction of the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing.
“Bostonians don’t love easy things, they love hard things — blizzards, the bleachers in Fenway Park, a good brawl over a contested parking space,” wrote Mystic River author Dennis Lehane in a New York Times column after Monday’s attack, telling readers that the bomber “messed with the wrong city.”
Add the resilience and strength of marathon-runners – who are taught to dig deep and push through the pain one mile at a time – and you get people in the immediate aftermath who were determined to help everyone around them no matter what it took, and RadarOnline.com is now honoring their bravery.
Wearing a cowboy hat over his shaggy hair, Carlos Arredondo has become one of the iconic faces of strength in the wake of adversity as he was captured on film fighting through the barriers to help a man whose injuries were so severe that he later had a double amputation.
Arredondo was at the marathon to support Tough Ruckers (military members who run in full military gear to honor fallen comrades) after losing both his son, Alex, in Iraq in 2004, and then his other son, Brian to suicide. The loving father couldn’t save his children, but he did rescue 27-year-old Jeff Bauman.
“I just concentrated on that young man and tied him up, his legs, and talked to him,” said a trembling Arredondo in a video posted on YouTube, explaining how he made a tourniquet to slow the blood loss from the man’s severed artery. “He was conscious. I let him know the ambulance is on the way, that it’s OK.”
A group of 15 active-duty soldiers from the Massachusetts National Guard were already carrying heavy loads running in full combat uniform with a “ruck,” a military backpack weighing about 40 pounds, on their backs before they got catapulted into a war zone. Having started the race at 5:20 am, they were gathered in the medical tent behind the finish line when the bombs went off and immediately went into tactical mode.
“We just absolutely annihilated the fence and pulled it back so we could see the victims underneath. The doctors and nurses from the medical tent were on the scene in under a minute,” revealed Lieutenant Stephen Fiola of the 1060th Transportation Company, according to MotherJones.com. “We were pulling burning debris off of people so that the medical personnel could get to them and begin triage.”
Once the victims were transported for medical care, the soldiers stood guard around the blast area to keep the scene safe and prevent people from entering, “helping the nurses get to the wounded and helping calm people down,” said Fiola.
From his spot 25 yards from the finish line, Dr. Vivek Shah thought fireworks had gone off when he first saw sparks flying through the air, until he realized all the spectators and fans were running away from him.
Instead of fleeing, he headed toward the devastation and what he discovered on the sidewalk was beyond anything he’s seen as an orthopedic surgeon. “It’s nothing that you can ever describe,” he told CNN.com “In all of my medical training, I’ve never seen anything like the amount of trauma.”
By the time he reached the wounded, he was surrounded by medical professionals desperate to help. “I’ve never seen anything like it in terms of the quickness of the response to that tragedy,” he revealed, and within the first 15 minutes, 15 patients were at Brigham and Women’s Hospital trauma center and seven operating rooms were immediately cleared for the nine patients needing surgery.
New England Patriots player Joe Andruzzi was already a hero to football fans for his actions both on and off the field long before the bombs went off. The burly linebacker and survivor of non-Hodgkin’s Burkitt’s lymphoma runs a foundation that helps children with brain cancer and had a group of runners in the marathon raising money for much-needed medical treatment. He was cheering them when their world turned upside down.
Despite being pictured carrying a wounded woman in his arms to safety as she clung to his beefy neck, the NFL star tried to play down his heroism, instead asking people to thank the “first responders, medics, EMTs, runners who crossed the finish line and kept on running straight to give blood, and the countless civilians who did whatever they could to save lives,” he said in a statement on Monday. “They were the true heroes. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by this senseless tragedy.”
Andruzzi is no stranger to bravery, having three brothers who are New York City firefighters and were on the scene at the World Trade Center during 9/11, and fortunately survived.
Like the Unknown Solider, the identity of one hero from the marathon remains a mystery. A Northeastern University student seriously wounded by shrapnel from the first blast was saved by a man she knows only as Tyler, and now with the help of Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick she is anxiously trying to find him to thank him.
Victoria was scared and hysterical when a firefighter, who described himself as an Army sergeant, jumped into help and carried her to the medical tent near the finish line. “One of things he said to her to calm her down was to show her his own shrapnel wound or scar from … when he was in Afghanistan,” said Patrick in a news conference, as he asked Tyler to call his office at 617-725-4000 so Victoria can thank him in person.
It has been a long time since I heard a good pop rock song. The 90′s had a good share of artists that represented and gave the genre a well deserved spot. But since then, only a hand full of individuals have managed to make an impact on the music industry. It’s said that talent sometimes skips generations and that just might be the case.
Here comes Krissy Krissy, a spark of light for the Pop/Rock genre. Singer, Songwriter and musician are some of the qualities of this Brooklyn raised, California native. Her bohemian east village fashion style is subtle and relatable to the masses. Her experiences in a church choir, explains the airy and optimistic feel to her music. The perfect combination of ingredients for success.
Her single “Dream” tells a story that can resonate with most of us. The journey we take, struggles and sacrifices we make in order to pursuit and achieve our dreams. Definitively, an inspiration to everyone to go after their goals. “Dream” was a reminder to my former classmate’s Alicia Key’s “Empire State of Mind II”. The message being that, we can accomplish what we have set out to become Listening to her song today, showed me the light at the end of the tunnel that I need to see for quite some time. I’m sure that there will be more to come from Krissy Krissy.
