Dancing with the Stars 2010 Lineup: Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough

After the Dancing with the Stars Lineup for 2010 was released, many got curious who were the other participants and who were the best and worst pairs in the Dancing with the Stars 2010. We all know that all the participants are “Stars”. They are well-known, prominent and famous.

But there are some Dancing with the Stars fans who doesn’t know who he or she is. Like my little sister, she knows Nicole Scherzinger, but she doesn’t know Derek Hough.

After my younger sister asked me about who the hell is Derek Hough, I decided to write about him and her partner Nicole Scherzinger.

I know everybody knows Nicole, so I’ll give you a brief bio of Derek Hough only. If you know Derek Hough, then, please stop reading this post about him. Dancing with the Stars fans already knows Derek Hough because he participated in some of the previous Dancing with the Stars TV seasons.

Here’s a brief bio of Derek Hough. He is an American dancer and choreographer. A former world champion in Latin American Dance, he appeared on the fifth season of the ABC television series, Dancing with the Stars with actress Jennie Garth, and was eliminated during the seventh Week of the sixth season, earning sixth place with actress Shannon Elizabeth.

He returned for the seventh season, this time partnered with Brooke Burke, and won the competition. He returned for the eighth season, earning fifth place with rapper Lil’ Kim. For season 9, Hough was partnered with model Joanna Krupa. They were eliminated during week 9, the semi-finals, on November 17, 2009.

So that’s a brief description about Derek Hough.

Let’s go to Nicole Scherzinger. In case you don’t know her yet. She is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and occasional actress who is best known as the lead singer of the Pussycat Dolls.

If you don’t know Pussycat Dolls, you must be living under a rock all these years.

E-waste problem in India will grow 500% by 2020

U.N. study said that various wastes from discarded electronics will rise dramatically in the developing world within a decade as reported by Daily World Buzz. Computer waste from India alone will grow by 500% by year 2020.

Achim Steiner, executive director of UNEP said “This report gives new urgency to establishing ambitious, formal and regulated processes for collecting and managing e-waste via the setting up of large, efficient facilities in China.” He also added that, “China is not alone in facing a serious challenge. India, Brazil, Mexico and others may also face rising environmental damage and health problems if e-waste recycling is left to the vagaries of the informal sector.”

Specialty materials group Umicore and the United Nations University, said that the United States is the biggest producer of e-waste, creating around 3 million metric tons a year.

China produces around 2.3 million metric tons domestically and is where a lot of the developed world’s e-waste is sent, EMPA said.

EMPA is the research institute for material science and technology of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology.

The study predicted that mobile phone waste in China would be about seven times higher than 2007 levels by 2020, while in India it would be about 18 times higher.

Joanna Newsom announces triple album, ‘Have One on Me’

On Feb. 23, 2010, Drag City will release Newsom’s Have One on Me as a three-CD package, as well as a three-LP vinyl set, if that’s your thing. This announcement confirms rumors that have been circulating since Drag City posted a mysterious cartoon hinting at the album’s imminent arrival earlier this month, though the triple-album part comes as a surprise.

If you can get Drag City’s site to load, you’ll be able to stream Have One on Me’s spare, contemplative “‘81.” Triple albums can be divisive, and this one will surely be no exception. Speaking as someone who loves Ys, though, I’d say that album proved that Newsom does exceedingly well with creative gambles. If there’s any artist from whom I’d like to hear three full discs of new material at once, you know my answer, it’s Joanna Newsom’s!

This is really exciting and amazing, specially if you’re a Joanna Newsom fan. I really can’t wait to buy her album!

Druidry recognized as religion in the United Kingdom

The government of UK received an applause from the Hindus around the world for giving official recognition to Druidry as a religion. This is known to be one of the oldest religions of the isles.

Rajan Zed, Hindu statesman , said that all religions were different ways to relate to the Divine, different responses to the Reality and were a positive sign of God’s generosity.

Zed added that a more inclusive understanding of religion was needed and we should learn to live together with mutual loyalty despite our seriously different faiths. He urged world religious leaders to leave behind selfish motives and work together for greater ideals.

Rajan Zed argued that recognition for Druidry should have come much earlier as Druidry, one of the earliest known spiritual traditions of United Kingdom, had been reportedly practiced in the area for thousands of years, much before the arrival of other religions.

The decision by Charity Commission for England and Wales means that Druidry will enjoy the status of a genuine faith. Board Members were satisfied that “there is sufficient belief in a supreme being or entity to constitute a religion”.

Consideration of the various characteristics of a religion by the Commission include: belief in a supreme being or entity; worship of, reverence for or veneration of the supreme being or entity; cogency, cohesion, seriousness and importance in the belief system; an identifiable positive, beneficial, moral or ethical framework promoted by the belief system.

The Charity Commission registers and regulates charities in England and Wales. Dame Suzi Leather is Chair of its Board.

Definition and practice of Druidry as given in registration application includes: Druidry was the native spiritual tradition of the peoples who inhabited the islands of Britain and Ireland, spreading through much of Europe. As an ancient pagan religion, Druidry is based on the reverential, sacred and honourable relationship between the people and the land. Druidic practice is based on honour for the ancestors. And lastly, All life is deemed to be unconditionally sacred.

Pacman’s 30th Anniversary Game on Google’s Homepage

This year is the celebration of Pacman’s 30th Anniversary. It has been 30 years since Pacman was created by Namco. Pacman was first released in May 22, 1980. Pacman was played by billions of kids and adults around the world. And this year, it’s remembered once again as the greatest computer games of all time.

It’s one of the easiest and most exciting game to play. You’ll be the pacman who eats yellow little dots and big yellow dots. You’ll be chasing monsters and run from them. The game has a simple logic, but it’s really exciting and fun to play.

Yesterday, Google featured Pacman in their homepage. They made a Pacman doodle, but it’s not just another simple doodle. It’s interactive! You can play Pacman using the up, down, left and right keys on your keyboard. You can chase monsters and run away from them, just like playing pacman in your good old Nintendo family computer.

If you’ve missed playing Pacman on Google’s homepage yesterday, don’t hesitate to play it in their official website at Pacman.com. Remembering the good old days is really fun!
