Kate Middleton Must Prepare Herself Of The Royal Duties And Responsibilities

Kate Middleton’s life will never be the same again after her exchange of royal marital vows with Prince William

As the day is slowly inching to the day where she will be called a Princess, she will become the envy of all princess-hopefuls around the world. She will become the face whom media will watch every move she makes.

Possibly soon become Queen one day, Middleton has to prepare herself for the responsibilities a royalty is expected of.

From one former palace aide comes a warning, Kate Middleton must find out quickly what her royal role should be to preclude the same problems faced by the late Princess Diana of Wales.

Patrick Jephson, who served as the Princess’s private secretary, urged the new future Queen to turn her attention to the practical side of life within the Windsors.

“If they want her to be a wife, a pretty face, to keep quiet and stay in the background – get that straight now, not in the future,” Mr Jephson said.

“If they want here to be more active and carry on the role Diana-style – let’s get that straight too.”

“If you speak to people who were around when Diana arrived, nobody had a serious talk to her about what she was going to do.” Jephson continued.

“She made it up. She developed her own style and role and in the end it got out of synchronisation with the rest of the household.”

He added: “Kate’s not just going into a marriage, she’s going into a business.”

Twentieth Television says the cover scored the highest first-day sales for a “Glee” track, with more than 55,000 downloads.

Michael Douglas’ Friends Are Worried Of The Actor’s Weakening Body

Despite of his relief from the stressful legal battle between his ex-wife Diandra Douglas,Michael Douglas still continues to fight against another battle – cancer.

Award winning US actor and producer, primarily in movies and television Douglas has been fighting against throat cancer.

His friends are worried about well-being and they dreadfully thought that he may be gone by the end of the year.

According to the sources, Douglas is growing weaker by the day.

“Michael looks like he’s at death’s door already,” a worried insider told American tabloid the National Enquirer.

“He’s gaunt and has lost more than 35 pounds as a result of chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

“He looks awful. Everyone is worried about him.

“He can’t eat, he’s exhausted, and he’s in a lot of pain. I hate to say it, but it looks as though he could be gone by the New Year.

“Michael is bravely trying to keep up is hope of surviving — but there’s little hope for him.

“All anyone can do now is pray. We’re urging everyone in the world to pray for Michael in the hope that some kind of miracle will save his life.”

The news comes after it was revealed Douglas had been placed on a rich diet of creamy pasta, organic liver and liquidized chicken to help him get back to a healthier size.

“He needs to bulk up. He’s so fragile that doctors are worried he won’t be strong enough to recover from treatment which has left him weak,” a source said.

“The liver and fats help alkalise the body while the chicken is nourishing. It’s all easy to swallow.”

Let us all wish for his recovery.

Eid Al Adha Celebration: Happy Eid Mubarak To All Muslims

Happy Eid Mubarak to all Muslims! Today, Muslims all over the world is celebrating Eid Al Adha or Eid Ul Adha. Also called “Festival of Sacrifice”, Muslims commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Isma’il as an act of obedience to Allah before He intervened to provide him with a ram to sacrifice instead.

Eid Al Alha start after the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia by Muslims worldwide. The celebration originated thousand of years ago in Mecca where Ibrahim’s faith was tested by Allah. He asked Ibrahim to offer to Him his only son Isma’il which he prayed for so long. Upon presenting Ibrahim was astounded as his son Isma’il surrendered his life to Allah and said: “Father, do what you have been commanded. You will find me, Insha’Allah, to be very patient.”

When Allah seen the willingness of the two, He then called it out and instead asked Ibrahim to replace the sacrifice with a ram. They both passed the test and as a reward, Allah then granted Ibrahim the good news of the birth of his second son, Is-haaq.

In celebration of Eid AL-Adha, Muslims will sacrifice an animal and then proceed to share the meat one third each with friends, family, and the poor. In the United States, President Obama greeted all Muslims by saying: “On Eid, Muslims around the world will commemorate Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son, and distribute food to those less fortunate – a reminder of the shared values and the common roots of three of the world’s major religions. On behalf of the American people, we extend our best wishes during this Hajj season.”

Happy Eid Mubarak to all Muslims. Here is a Youtube video that we found greeting each Muslim celebrating Eid Al Adha a Happy Eid Mubarak!

Monday Night Football: Philadelphia Eagles vs Washington Redskins on ESPN Preview and Coverage

Two rising NFL teams will face one another in the primetime Monday Night Football today. The Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Redskins will be facing each other for the second time this season. Their first meeting was on October 3 and during that time the Redskins won, 17-12. It was a very close game but the offensive and defensive strategy of the Redskins did paid off.

The Eagles had made a better record since the last meeting and have lost just two more games while the Redskins have lost the same amount of games but brings the total to four games. Donovan McNabb will hopefully be seeing play today since he had been benched after suffering some cardiovascular problems. If McNabb is healthy and in sufficient cardiovascular shape then he might get his second revenge against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Washington Redskins had been routed by Detroit Lions last week, 37-25 while the Philadelphia Eagles managed to snap a win against the Indianapolis Colts, 26-24.

We will once again see Philadelphia Eagle’s Michael Vick who had been 3-1 on Monday Night Football games. Last week he was knocked from the game. Watched out as well for Philadephia’s Asante Samuel who had the most interceptions since 2006 in the NFL.

Players to watch for Washington Redskins inclues linebacker Brian Orakpo and his sacks. He had made five sacks in his past four games. Also, add Chris Cooley who is second among NFC tight ends with 39 receptions.

Who will win in this second face-off between Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins? Will the Eagles take their revenge this time? Let us hear some points from Drew Litton’s Monday Matchup Madness.

NCAA Football Update: BCS Rankings 2010 Week 12

The latest Bowl Championship Series (BCS) rankings had been released and the top four undefeated teams still remains to be on top of the BCS rankings. There are several upsets during week 11 and these are major upsets to teams who had been considered to be dominant in those games.

Before the upsets let us talk about one of the greatest performance in team’s 95-year football history. Wisconsin Badgers scored 83 points in their game against Indiana, 83-20. Wisconsin (9-1, 5-1) put up the most points by an FBS school this season and matched the highest scoring total by a team in a Big Ten conference game since Ohio State’s 83-21.

Now for the upsets, Northwestern made their first victory over a ranked team this season by defeating Iowa, 21-17. An important interception by Northwester cost Iowa the game and their rankings in the BCS. The Hawkeyes had an early strong play in the fourth quarter but Jeremiha Hunter intercepted Persa at the Iowa 38, but when Peters responded by picking off a deep pass near the end zone it changed everything. It was a bitter-sweet victory for Northwestern.

Notre Dame also upset then number 14 Utah, 28-3. The Utah Utes were blocked from executing their big offense and they were limited in yards and in scoring. It was the lowest performance of the Utes since their defeat to UNLV in 2007.
