A list from inside the Chinese administration shows that Muslims in China are punished for everyday conduct in their private lives. The document was leaked to reporters from NDR, WDR, Deutscher Welle and “Süddeutscher Zeitung”. The list shows the apparent trivialities for which people were interned, sometimes for years: for example, because they wore headscarves or beards, made pilgrimages or went abroad. Possession of religious books is also listed as a reason for detention.

John McCain in Kiev: “Ukraine will improve Europe”

Opposition to the government says that the union with Russia would have effectively reconstituted the Soviet Union. They remain suspicious that Yanukovych intends to agree with the customs union when he meets Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday.

The diplomatic tug of war and conflicting statements only worked to reinvigorate the spirits of 200,000 protesters, who rallied daily for over three weeks.

“We are here to join the revolution,” said Lyudmila Kostyantynivna, a retired woman from the city of Cherkasy, three hours south of Kiev. Dancing in front of the crowd near the stage while performing a musical act, he said he had followed the coverage of protests on the few television channels that showed him in the past few weeks, but decided to go out this weekend after encouraging his friends, who were with her.

“It’s not just for young people, but also for us,” he said. “We have a criminal for a president and a government that takes, takes, takes and leaves us – the people – with nothing.”

At noon, Kiev’s Independence Square was teeming with people from the western Ukrainian city of Lviv and the eastern industrial city of Luhansk. They exited the subway exits and poured onto the main avenue of the city, Khreschatyk, singing: “Out with the gang!” and “Glory to Ukraine!”

Led by opposition leaders, the crowd, waving EU and Ukrainian flags, sang the country’s anthem.

Igor Rudenko, a 25-year-old businessman, said he wanted the government to sign the association agreement with the EU and not seek closer ties with Russia.

“We had a very unstable political and economic situation, made worse by not signing the association agreement,” he said. “So I’m here to ask for our country to be brought to the EU.”

“The influence of the EU can make our country better, more confident and more competitive in the world economy.”

His words were echoed by John McCain, the American senator, who arrived in Kiev on Saturday to support anti-government protesters.

“Throughout Ukraine, America is with you,” he invited the cheering crowd on Independence Square.

“The free world is with you, America is with you, I am with you. Ukraine will improve Europe and Europe will improve Ukraine. ”

A much smaller demonstration of government supporters, which numbered around 15,000 people, was taking place about a mile away in Kiev’s Mariinsky Park. Dozens of riot police officers separated the two groups.

And despite Fuele’s comments, the protesters had a glimmer of hope from Carl Bildt, Swedish foreign minister and strong supporter of Ukraine’s integration.

“The door is open for Ukraine to sign an association and free trade agreement with the EU,” he tweeted. “It’s ready. Anytime.”

No Jackie in Ukrainian politics – November 1, 2012 | KyivPost | KyivPost

Ukraine does not know the pleasure of having a real first lady, not to mention the glamorous ones like Jacqueline Kennedy or Michelle Obama.

President Viktor Yanukovich’s wife, Lyudmila, rarely makes public appearances. He lives in Donetsk and does not participate in the official life of the country, depriving the Ukrainians of the joy of looking and discussing the priorities, customs, manners and tastes of the first lady.

Most Ukrainian politicians follow the president’s path of keeping wives in the background. This makes election day the only time people can see many politicians accompanied by their wives.

The leaders of almost all the parties that were elected to parliament this time went to the polling station with their spouses, as did at least one former president, Leonid Kuchma. Regardless of how their husbands’ political plans differed, all wives had something in common: an unfortunate choice of clothes.

The clothes of the election day of the black dominations completely dominate as if everyone had something to cry about.

It is quite unlikely that the wife of opposition leader Arseniy Yatseniuk, Terezia, 42, and Kuchma’s wife, Lyudmila, 72, have agreed on what to wear. But both chose similar black trench coats with light patterned scarves underneath. Lyudmila Kuchma, just like her retired husband, had no political function that day except to exercise her right to vote as a citizen.

Unlike her, Terezia Yatseniuk came to vote and support her husband’s ambitions with an adequate look. Her sombre appearance is even more striking, as she had previously been seen wearing white, blue and purple clothes.

Terezia Yatseniuk, wife of the leader of the united opposition Arseniy Yatseniuk.

Anna Turchynova, 42, wife of the former deputy prime minister and current opposition leader Oleksandr Turchynov, wore a black coat and a sad look, both unflattering. She was previously photographed in white, beige and pink clothes. One even shows Turchynova in a shirt with her husband’s photo on it. Wouldn’t it have been nice to wear it on election day?

Turchynova tried to improve this distressing aspect with a bag. But honestly, Christian Dior’s Lady Dior wasn’t the best choice. Wear a recognizable $ 2,000 bag as you help your husband earn public sympathy in a troubled country – well, that’s not a good strategy.

Anna Turchynova, wife of Oleksandr Turchynov.

Ironically enough, the wives of the nationalist leader Svoboda Oleg Tiahnybok, the head of the Party of Regions and Prime Minister Mykola Azarov and the new political star Vitali Klitschko wore black and red.

Klitschko’s wife, Natalia, 38, a former model, was the liveliest, but she didn’t avoid the curse of black. The formal trousers, the high collar and a coat with red neck decorations were the choice of this brunette. His discrepancy with Klitschko, who wore a light gray jacket and a white shirt, was striking.

Natalia Klitschko, wife of opposition leader Vitali Klitschko

Olga Tiahnybok, 43, added a black and red shawl to her … yes, black coat. And Lyudmyla Azarova, 66, combined her coat with a black and red hat and an unmatched red bag.

Olga Tiahnybok, wife of Oleh Tiahnybok

Azarova’s diabolical appearance, Turchynova’s luxury accessories and Klitschko’s choice of colors are his business, but not in political shows like the one on October 28, when their styles can potentially help or damage the images of their husbands.

Lyudmyla Azarova is located next to her husband, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, in a polling station in Kiev on October 28th.

It may be sexism, but political women (including former U.S. first lady Hillary Clinton among them) and male politicians’ wives are heavily scrutinized in the West, including their choice of clothes.

It now appears that regardless of who will succeed in the 2015 presidential election, there is little chance that Ukraine will have her Jackie Kennedy unless a miracle occurs in the next three years.

Harry Morgan of 96 years old television comedy “M * A * S * H” dies

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The actor of the prolific character Harry Morgan, who has appeared in more than 100 films but was best known for television roles including Colonel Sherman Potter in the popular series “M * A * S * H”, is died Wednesday at his Los Angeles home, 96 years old.

Actor Harry Morgan arrives for the Golden Boot Awards in Beverly Hills, California, in this photo file on August 10, 2002. REUTERS / Robert Galbraith / File

Her son, producer Christopher Morgan, confirmed the actor’s death in an email to Reuters.

Morgan won an Emmy Award in 1980, honoring the best of US TV, for his work in the anti-war comedy series “M * A * S * H” as the famous commander of a US Army mobile surgical hospital during the Korean War. . Morgan appeared in “M * A * S * H” from 1975 to 1983.

He also starred as Bill Gannon in the crime TV series “Dragnet” from 1967 to 1970, alongside Jack Webb.

Morgan’s ability to star in a variety of dramatic and comedic roles made him an actor in demand for half a century. He has starred in a dozen US TV series since the 1950s and has appeared in films with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.

He appeared in “The Ox-Bow Incident” in 1943 with Henry Fonda, “High Noon” in 1952 with Gary Cooper, “The Glenn Miller Story” in 1954 with Jimmy Stewart and “Inherit the wind” in 1960 with Spencer Tracy.

But it was his role in “M * A * S * H”, the longtime series on the CBS network, which earned him his fame. The series was adapted from the 1970 hit film of the same name, presenting an anti-war theme as the United States was moving away from the Vietnam War.

Morgan was not one of the original cast members. The series started in 1972, but her first appearance had a starring role during her third season. He signed on as a full-time cast member in 1975 after actor McLean Stevenson, who played the commanding officer of the fictitious unit, left the show.

“ONE OF THE MOST LUCKY”

The actor portrayed Colonel Potter as a disciplined, sometimes short-tempered, but ultimately righteous and good-hearted and skilled surgeon. He was surrounded by a colorful cast including Alan Alda, Loretta Swit, Larry Linville, Mike Farrell, Gary Burghoff, David Ogden Stiers and Jamie Farr.

Morgan cried during a 1983 press conference after recording the final episode of “M * A * S * H”, which became the most watched show in the history of American television.

He told reporters, “I feel very sad and sentimental. I don’t know if” M * A * S * H ​​”made me a better actor, but I know it made me a better human being.”

Morgan went on to play Potter in a short M * A * S * H ​​television sequel entitled “Aftermash”. “I’m playing a character I’m terribly fond of,” he told the Miami Herald in 1983. “I knew nothing better would happen.”

Prior to the popular comedy, Morgan was perhaps best known for his role as a sidekick cop, Agent Bill Gannon, for serene investigator Sgt. Joe Friday (Jack Webb) on the popular drama “Dragnet”.

His television and film credits went widely, starting in the early 1940s and including films such as “Wing and a Prayer” (1944) and “High Noon” (1952). His television work began in the 1950s and included numerous guest star and regular series roles until his performance as “Dragnet” (1967-1970).

In 2004, he said to the Archive of American Television: “I would like to be remembered for being a pleasant enough person and for getting along mostly with many people I have worked with. And for having a wonderful life and for I enjoyed almost every minute … I think I’m one of the luckiest people in the world. ”

Morgan was born Harry Bratsberg in Detroit in 1915 and worked on stage before traveling to Hollywood. In his early works, he is credited as Henry Morgan. He married twice and had four children with his first wife, Eileen, who died in 1985 after the couple had been together for 45 years.

One son, Daniel, died in 1989. He survived three other children, eight grandchildren and his second wife, Barbara Bushman.

“M * A * S * H” star David Ogden Stiers reveals that he is gay

The sitcom star and the voice of animated characters, 66, reveals that he is gay.

May 6, 2009 – –
In the twilight of his career, actor “M * A * S * H” David Ogden Stiers has finally come out, saying he is no longer afraid of being gay.

In a recent interview, the 66-year-old Emmy-nominated actor told the Oklahoma City blog gossip-boy.com: “I am [gay]. Very proud of it. ”

Ogden Stiers joined the cast of “M * A * S * H” in 1977 as arrogant but charming aristocrat Charles Emerson Winchester III. In addition to acting in the sitcom, he voiced the characters of numerous Disney films, including Cogsworth in “Beauty and the Beast” and the archdeacon in “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”.

The actor claimed to have kept his homosexuality hidden for years because he feared going out would harm his career.
But since he hasn’t been subjected to any anti-gay discrimination in the film industry, Ogden Stiers has been rethinking what made him stay exactly in the closet for so long.

“I haven’t seen anything like this that has happened in a long, long time,” he said about anti-gay discrimination, adding that his personal concerns may have clouded his views. “I should say in this regard that many of my fears have been self-invented in modern times. I have worked internally on whether they were the problem or if I continued to use them as an excuse.”

He said he thought keeping quiet about his sexuality would keep his income safe.

“I enjoy working, and although many have this idealistic belief that the entertainment industry and studios like Walt Disney are gay friendly,” they haven’t always been, he said. “For the most part they are, but that doesn’t mean to them that business doesn’t come first. It’s a matter of economics … A lot of my income came from giving voice to Disney and family programming.”

Ogden Stiers also added that the flamboyant nature of some of his animated roles contributed to his decision to hide his sexuality.

“Cogsworth, the character I played in” Beauty and the Beast “, may be a little flashy on the screen because it’s basically a cartoon,” he said. “But they didn’t want Cogsworth to become Disney’s gay character because he was wandering about whether a gay man was playing him.”

Disney is the parent company of ABC News. Asked to respond to Ogden Stiers’ comments, a Disney Studio spokesman said, “Casting decisions are made solely on the basis of who is the best actor or actress for a particular role.”

What is the momentum of Odgen Stiers to be released now? He hopes to settle down with someone and make his love story public.

“I would like to spend the twilight of my life being just who I am,” he said. “I could say that noble reasons emerge to advance the rights of homosexuals, but I must admit that it is for much more selfish reasons. Now is the time when I want to find someone and I don’t want to force any potential partner to live a life of extreme discretion with myself “.

Ogden Stiers is the latest actor to come out late in life

Ogden Stiers is the latest in a long line of actors to come out late in their careers, although not all of them have been so explicit.

“Frasier” star David Hyde Pierce, 50, was pushed out of the closet in 2007 after an Associated Press article mentioned his partner, Brian Hargrove, and the AfterElton.com blog followed Pierce to confirm that he was actually gay. Previously the actor had refused to mention his personal life.

“Lord of the Rings” and “X-Men” star Sir Ian McKellen, 69, revealed that he was gay on British radio in 1988 and later said he wanted to go out earlier. He advised others in Hollywood to do the same.

“When I got out, I was almost forty years old, and I was fed up with worrying about what others thought and confident enough in my career to suspect it wouldn’t make any difference. It was absolutely wrong,” he told WENN in 2005. ” I became a better actor and my film career took off in a way I couldn’t have expected. You can’t lie about something so central without hurting yourself. ”

“Doogie Howser, M.D.” and “How I Met Your Mother” star Neil Patrick Harris, 35, also made a big leap when he came out of the closet.

“I am happy to dispel any wrong rumors or ideas and I am proud enough to say that I am a very happy gay man who lives my life to the fullest and feels most fortunate to work with wonderful people in the industry I love,” he told People revised in 2006.

M * A * S * H ​​The star David Ogden Stiers comes out (to find love!) / Queerty

David-Ogden-Stiers

David Ogden Stiers, who played Major Charles Winchester MIXTURE for six years now, at 66, he has gone out. Yahoo or! Why did it take so long? Standard Hollywood Reasons: He feared it would cost him a career, which also included vocal work in films like The beauty and the Beast, Lilo and Stitch, is Pocahontas, produced by that “family” company called Disney.

Stiers says: “From the late 1980s until around seven or eight years ago, there would have been some people who came to you, supporting the position that since we were doing a family fare, it would be better than the actors they maintained a certain palatability for their parents. Probably these parts had heard rumors or harbored suspicions about me and wanted to make sure that no embarrassing accidents would occur. “

So why go out now? “I could claim noble reasons as a result of advancing gay rights, but I have to admit that they are for much more selfish reasons. Now is the time when I want to find someone and I don’t want to force any potential partner to live a life of extreme discretion for me. “

All together now: Awww!

`POCAHONTAS ‘HAS PRETTY COLORS, BUT SUBSTANCE OF THE WIND

With tracks ranging from his wild little operetta that opens up to his dramatically ascending Broadway ballads, “Pocahontas” eagerly follows in the footsteps of “Beauty and the Beast”. This time, her beauty is a Native American princess who talks to the trees and listens, and her beast is an English soldier who looks like a beachboy and sounds like Mel Gibson.

But this fantastic fantasy about the history of the people of Disney does not have the stuff of a Broadway hit – although some of the great voices of musical theater are heard on the track. His comic characters are derisory; his villain is a swollen and harmless Captain Hook; and its plot is negligible and palpably silly.

All that “Pocahontas” can give you is love. It looks like a “Madison County Bridges” for children.

From the moment the project was announced, it has looked far from promising. After returning to the top of the heap of animation returning to the fairy tales that made his fame and fortune since “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” in 1937, Disney’s motors and agitators looked past “The Little Mermaid” and “Beauty and the Beast “and” Aladdin “in a territory more dangerous than original fairy tales for our times.

Pure moment, massive promotion and a shrewd but less than admirable combination of African choirs and drums and Elton John pop have brought unprecedented returns to “The Lion King” – though he will never go far from “Eminently Seasoned Beauty and Beast” “.

There is no doubt that “Pocahontas” will also attract megabucks, largely due to the power of its main song, “Colors of the Wind”. But despite the wonderfully persuasive animation of the human characters – especially the agile, hopping, diving Princess Algonquian – this turns out to be a flat effort, both visually and dramatically.

As directed by Mike Gabriel and Eric Goldberg from a script by Carl Binder, Susannah Grant and Philip LaZebnik, “Pocahontas” begins by stealing from “Henry V.” by Laurence Olivier. An overview of the landscape of Elizabethan London comes to life and the camera gets closer and closer to the Renaissance city, closing not on the Globe Theater but on a ship on the pier.

The swabbies load the large sailing ship Susan Constant while singing “The Virginia Company”, with the blonde Capt. John Smith, sung crudely but credibly by Mel Gibson, taking on voice command. The superb, overweight Gov. Ratcliffe arrives in a carriage with his English bulldog pipsqueak and the fawn cabin boy, and is offshore. Now the title fills the screen and Alan Menken’s soundtrack stirs emotions, in a Native American mode.

The princess presents herself as an independent and impetuous species, ready to dive headlong from a towering cliff, and always a problem for her severe but loving father, Powhatan.

It is also presented as the most splendid and voluptuous of the Disney heroines, with minis minidresses in deerskin with bare shoulders and raven braids rolled and blown by the wind that make every day of the hair the best. When speaking through Irene Bedard, Pocahontas is a confident but somewhat dreamy girl-woman. When Judy Kuhn sings, her “Just Around the River Bend” takes her to promising musical heights.

As the plot progresses, Powhatan is presented as a noble, albeit rigid, warrior king as voiced by Indian activist Russell Means. His opponent Ratcliffe, read by “Beauty” veteran David Ogden Stiers, is portrayed as a benevolent and somewhat foolish dictator who seems to think he is in the golden land of the Aztecs.

The Pocahontas court includes a playful raccoon and a long-billed hummingbird, for animated comic relief, and a fiancée Nakoma (near Nokomis, daughter of the moon of “Hiawatha” fame). Grandma Willow, an ancestral tree spirit spoken and sung by Linda Hunt, eliminates the advice and ecological wisdom in “Listen to your heart”. Kocoum, a brave brave, hopes to hope. But once Pocahontas blinks his eyes on the blond boy with the double hats and the funny helmet and the lace of Mel Gibson, Kocoum is dead (literally).

As the vistas unfold, Disney’s background artists work with Japanese landscape techniques, filling the screen with flat and tarnished pastels. “Colors of the Winds” offers more primary shades, but above all the New World and its people seem semi-abstract, stylized and cold designs. Even the swollen music of Menken and the simple but sometimes poetic lyrics of Stephen Schwartz cannot ignite much warmth in the sincere but empty feeling of a great culture and its first doomed heroine.

Classified G, this film contains a murder and some moments that could scare young children.
