    * Video: Mum Survives Fire Which Kills Three Children

The children - named locally as Maddie, three, AJ, five, and William, nine - were pulled "like little rag dolls" from the burning building in Bridlington, East Yorkshire.

Firefighters and paramedics fought in vain to revive the youngsters but they were pronounced dead on arrival in hospital in Scarborough.

Their mother, Samantha Hudson, remains in hospital.

The fire broke out late on Thursday night and emergency services were at the three-storey terrace property within minutes.

Humberside Police superintendent Mike Duggleby said he believed the blaze had started inside the house and did not appear to have been started deliberately.

He asked for anyone with information to call 0845 6060222 quoting the log number 719 November 11.

The family had only moved into the area recently but had settled in well, according to neighbour Lesley Salisbury.

Ms Salisbury, a nurse, told Sky News of her attempts to resuscitate one of the children.

"I have never worked on a child before... this is something I never wish to repeat. It was dreadful, really dreadful."

"I do remember the firefighters bringing them out, they were like little rag dolls," she added.

She said she, firefighters and paramedics worked on the youngsters for about an hour.

Describing the fire, Ms Salisbury said: "I have never seen anything like it before. It was absolutely awesome to see the flames coming out at such a speed and so far out.

"The fire crew, the ambulance crews... everybody, they just got stuck in and tried their best but unfortunately it had tragic results."

Neighbour Edith Dawson, 86, said she watched as "fierce" flames tore through the property.

"It's heart-breaking. I had seen the children playing in their grandmother's back yard. They hadn't been in the house all that long, probably no more than six months.

"It was terrible, with the wind as well, it was so fierce. There were flames coming from the top and you couldn't see for the smoke."

Mark Rhodes, of Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, described the tragedy as "probably the most difficult, most challenging type of incident that we can ever be expected to deal with".

"I don't think anybody in their career ever expects to face the trauma of a fire involving children and the very difficult working conditions of last night," he added.

We scoured America?s scoop shops (tough job, but somebody had to do it) for the tastiest (and healthiest) ice creams, yogurts, and sorbets that will satisfy your sweet tooth without hurting your waistline.

Our criteria: superior taste, stellar nutrition, and countrywide availability. Here, the five winners. (A standard scoop, by the way, is about 1/2 cup, or 3 to 3.5 ounces.)

H?agen-Dazs Mango Fat Free Sorbet
A blend of juicy, tropical mangoes
120 calories, 0 grams fat, 20% RDA vitamin A, 10% RDA vitamin C

?If you love mangoes, you?ll enjoy this sorbet. It?s very satisfying?you only need a little to feel content, and it?s very refreshing on a hot summer day,? judge Christine Palumbo, RD, says. And judge Kara Nielsen, a former pastry chef who now follows food trends, says, ?It?s shocking that there is no fat. This sorbet is so creamy and totally indulgent.?

Ben & Jerry?s Black Raspberry Swirl Low Fat Frozen Yogurt
Black raspberry yogurt with thick black raspberry swirls made with real black and red raspberries
140 calories, 1.5 grams fat, 15% RDA calcium

?This has a serious raspberry flavor and a beautiful creaminess. It feels like you?re eating a full-fat ice cream, not a healthy frozen yogurt,? Palumbo says. She and the other judges also like the ingredients, including hormone-free milk and fair-trade flavors. Nutrition pamphlets are available at Ben & Jerry?s counters, and there are lots of healthy choices?sorbets, frozen yogurts, and even full-fat ice creams like the next winner. (The vanilla, chocolate, and coffee flavors have 200 or fewer calories, too.) 5 healthy ice cream sandwiches

Ben & Jerry?s Strawberry Ice Cream
Strawberry ice cream with real strawberry pieces
170 calories, 9 grams fat, 15% RDA vitamin C, 10% RDA calcium

?It is delicious in taste and in feel?very honest and fresh,? says judge Gale Gand, a pastry chef and co-owner of Tru in Chicago. Palumbo loves that it has only eight ingredients?all natural. Ask for a kid-size cup to cut calories. 11 healthy milkshakes and smoothies

Baskin-Robbins Light Aloha Brownie Ice Cream
Light chocolate ice cream with ribbons of fudge and chunks of macadamia nut toffee
160 calories, 5 grams fat, 10% RDA calcium

?Rich, fudgy, chocolaty, and delicious,? Palumbo says. ?If you need a chocolate fix, this will do the trick!? Baskin-Robbins?s BRight Choices flavors?like Cappuccino Chip, Premium Churned Light Raspberry Chip, and various sorbets?are healthy takes on their classics. We did have one beef: Baskin-Robbins? products had more artificial ingredients than the other contenders. Desserts for 300 calories or less

H?agen-Dazs Cranberry Blueberry Fat Free Sorbet
A blend of tart cranberries and sweet blueberries
100 calories, 0 grams fat, 8% RDA vitamin C

?This has a nice flavor, is very refreshing and tart?but not too tart,? Gand says. H?agen Dazs shops aren?t overflowing with low-fat ice creams, but they do have other amazing fat-free sorbets besides our two winners. Our judges like that HD offers small cup sizes for portion control and that you can request nutrition information, which is kept behind the counter.

If you add a cone...
? Cake cone: 17 calories, 0 grams fat
? Sugar cone: 40 calories, 0.5 grams fat
? Waffle cone: 121 calories, 2 grams fat

Have your say: Crime

The man, who is understood to be a student from Reading, was arrested by officers in Cambridgeshire on behalf of the Metropolitan Police.

He is being held on suspicion of violent disorder at Parkside police station in Cambridge, Scotland Yard said.

A spokesman said: "This arrest follows an investigation into public disorder where a fire extinguisher was thrown from the roof of Millbank Tower."

After the empty fire extinguisher was flung from the top of the building housing the Tory party headquarters, it narrowly missed two riot squad officers.

Sky News crime correspondent Martin Brunt said: "Because the fire extinguisher landed so close to the officers, representatives of the Police Federation have called for the thrower to be charged with attempted murder."

He added: "Footage appears to show a man lifting the fire extinguisher and swinging it around before he hurls it off the roof.

"When the camera goes back to him, he appears to have disappeared, perhaps because he's realised the gravity of what he has done."

The incident was one of the defining moments of the students' four-hour stand-off on Wednesday.

It involved a breakaway group of up to 50 protesters who smashed windows, discharged fire extinguishers and threw debris from the top of the Millbank office complex.

Meanwhile, the Met Police has revealed 10 of the 54 people arrested during outbreaks of disorder were school pupils aged under 18 and the remainder were all students, including 21 women.

Teams of officers from the Met's public order intelligence unit have been scouring footage of the Tory party HQ storming.

Activist websites have published instructions to those who fear they may be identified and arrested in the aftermath of the violence.

One website told participants to destroy potential evidence, including clothing and any distinctive jewellery worn.

A contributor urged demonstrators not to panic or give themselves up as a result of the flood of media coverage.

ya, but i still wonder why the owner of such a blog let it be on free blog host, at least the blog should be have been move or transfered

The USS Ronald Reagan came to the rescue on Tuesday when it arrived with 60,000 pounds of supplies for passengers aboard the stranded Carnival Cruise ship Splendor.

Tugboats maneuvered the crippled ship to a dock in San Diego Thursday, ending a four-day ordeal at sea for the 3,299 passengers.

Officials said with no power to run elevators, it would take about 4 hours for the passengers and 1,200 crew members to leave the 2-year-old, 952-foot, 113,000-ton ship, which was left adrift off the western coast of Mexico about 6 a.m. Monday by an engine room fire.

The National Transportation Safety Board appointed Larry Bowling to investigate the incident.

Passengers spent three days without air conditioning, hot showers, cooked meals and for a time without working toilets. Usual cruise fare was replaced by long waits for Spam and sandwich meats, canned crab meat and Pop Tarts.

A vendor on shore was selling T-shirts reading: "I survived the 2010 Carnival Cruise Spam-cation," the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

Only eight ship's phones were available for passengers who needed to make emergency calls, CNN said. Carnival is offering passengers hotel rooms in San Diego while scrambling to arrange flights home and buses to Long Beach, where the cruise originated Sunday. Carnival is offering a free cruise to passengers in addition to a full refund. The ship's doctor reported few ill passengers.

The Splendor, assisted by five tugboats, reached cellphone range Wednesday, allowing some passengers to call families and friends and relate their accounts of what happened during its tow back to California, USA Today reported.

"It's nothing like anyone expected," passenger David Zambrano, an employee of KUSA-TV, Denver, said in a report filed to the station. "You stand in line for 2 hours just to get your food because everybody goes to the same place to pick up their food. Then once you get your food, you look for something to do. People are playing cards. People are standing around, just kind of talking. They're getting to socialize."

Cruise line officials said an investigation into what caused the fire and why it crippled the ship would begin after the ship docks.

"When the Splendor arrives back in port, there's likely to be considerable media coverage of very unhappy, sometimes angry people whose vacation went awry," Cruise Week Editor Mike Driscoll told USA Today. "The so-called Spam cruise may sound funny to some outsiders watching TV, but it's not funny to those who were on it."

Carnival Splendor passengers are praising the crew but otherwise describing their experience aboard the cruise ship as a "nightmare" vacation. Half a dozen tugboats finally dragged the Splendor into San Diego Bay today after a fire in the engine room Monday left it adrift. Getting off also required considerable patience. Elevators on the towering ship weren't working and it took hours for the 3,300 passengers to disembark.

Finally back on land, one woman said a highlight of the trip came when she discovered her toilet was flushing again after not working for 15 hours. Peg Fisher says she was so excited she ran into the hall, shouting the news to fellow passengers who sprinted back to their cabins.

With refrigerators also out and food spoiling, the Splendor's cooks improvised. But Fisher says the fare was so awful, it was probably the only cruise "where people lost weight instead of gaining weight."

Despite the nightmare, passengers appeared eager for a momento, snapping up $20 T-shirts with the phrase: "I survived the 2010 Carnival cruise Spamcation."

MOVIES | NOLLYWOOD / Garfield Comic Strip Causes Veterans Day Controversy
« on: November 12, 2010, 05:29:38 PM »
Garfield cartoonist Jim Davis apologized Thursday for a Garfield strip that some veterans may have found offensive. The strip ran on Veterans Day in newspapers across the country. It shows a spider daring the pudgy orange cat to squash it. The spider tells Garfield that if he is killed, "they will hold an annual day of remembrance in my honor." The final panel shows a spider-teacher asking its students if they know why spiders celebrate "National Stupid Day."

Davis, of Muncie, Ind., said in a statement posted on his website that he didn't know the strip would appear on Veterans Day. He said it was written nearly a year ago and called the publication Thursday "the worst timing ever." "It absolutely, positively has nothing to do with this important day of remembrance," Davis said.

John Raughter, a spokesman for the Indianapolis-based American Legion, looked at the strip and Davis' statement after the cartoon was brought to his attention by a reporter. He said an apology wasn't necessary. "We have no reason to doubt his explanation of what happened," Raughter said.

Davis said his brother served in Vietnam, and his son is a Marine who has served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He said he is grateful for the service of veterans, and called any offense "unintentional and regrettable."

Rupert Grint has a surprise in store as he admits young fans will be shocked by the latest film in the saga. The 22-year-old, who plays Ron Weasley, revealed even he was surprised by the gore in Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 1, which premiered last night. Ron even gets splinched - when a wizard vanishes and reappears - or appparates - incorrectly, leaving part of their body behind.

He revealed: "It's really taken to another level. It's quite gory. Getting splinched is disgusting. My arm kind of gets ripped open. It's really graphic, actually."

The young stars - Rupert, Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe - had to go through a much more rigorous training regime for this movie. The final book in the series, the Deathly Hallows packs in a lot more action than its predecessors.

To do the fight scenes justice on the big screen, the three young actors went through traditional action movie training.

Rupert said: "This one was a lot tougher because we were out there fending for ourselves, and there's a lot of fighting.

"We used to have this ballet choreographer who taught us all these fancy wand flicks.

"Now the wand fighting is much more sword-like and aggressive. It's been really cool."

Rupert is confident they have done a fantastic job in bringing the book to life properly. But he says fans will be shocked by some of the climactic scenes. Rupert added: "All the sets we've know n for years, like The Great Hall, get destroyed and becomeburning wrecks.

"It's quite shocking to see these familiar places get destroyed but the scenes are going to be really epic."

The final book has been split into two parts for the big screen, so the cast were working on the films back to back for a full year.

But Rupert reckons the filming isn't much different to any of t he other Potter flicks. In fact, if anything, he believes the tiredness they felt towards the end helped them capture the right mood on the big screen.

He said: "Hours-wise, they're all the same since we turned 16. It's nine-hour days and five days a week.

"It's quite tiring because this has felt like we've been here for years and it hasn't gone on this long.

"I think it helps, because you're supposed to be ex hausted anyway.

"It did take my life over. But there are lots of different scenes so it never got boring."

And Rupert is quick to put fans' fears to rest over how the controversial split has affected the movies.

THERE were concerns that it would feel like two completely separate stories, rather than one flowing narrative.

"Yeah, it feels like one story," he said. "When we started, it was just concentrating on the first one because we didn't have the script for the second until much later, actually. To me, it doesn't really feel like two films."

The relationships between Harry, Ron and Hermione change dramatically over the course of the final two films.

As Emma told us yesterday, Ron and Hermione finally kiss in this movie. And just as his friend Emma felt hugely uncomfortable, Rupert hated puckering up to her for the camera.

He said: "It sounds stupid, but I never really saw it coming. It has always been hinted at but I never thought to the extent where at the end, we're but I never really saw it coming. It has always been hinted at but I never thought to the extent where atthe end, we're quite like a couple. The kiss was one of the first scenes we filmed.

"It was weird. I kind of built up this thing in my head. "We were both kind of dreading it, just because we've known each other since we were small. It's like kissing your sister."

Ron and Harry also find themselves in an unusual situation, as Weasley questions Harry's actions rather than giving his whole- hearted support.

Rupert said: "It's an odd relationship in the beginning because Ron doesn't completely trust t hat Harry knows what he's doing.

"There's a lot of paranoia and he's worried about his family, and there's doubts. It erupts into this big argument."

Rupert enjoyed his character's growth in the final films, and reveals that Par t 1 in particular shows a new side to the cheery lad.

In fact, he found that, for the first time, he was really stretched as an actor for haunting, emotional scenes.

"This film is the first time I really had to do that," he said.

"There is one big scene with the whole Weasley family. It was depressing to do and it's quite shocking because it's a character we've associated w it h jokes a nd mucking about.

"It's quite horrible. There have been a lot of heavy, emotional scenes like t hat.

"It's satisfying, though. But it's quite haunting as well, because I'm not really used to it.

"I've learned quite a lot and it's been great. Particularly in this one - and the last two - Ron has kind of come into his own a bit.

"I enjoyed hav ing more to do.

"He's got a lot more dept h now and he's a lot more complicated than in previous films. It's kind of nice."

RUPERT has already taken on more adult roles in films Cherry Bomb and Wild Target, and has just signed on to play ski-jumper Eddie The Eagle.

So it's no surprise to hear that he wants to continue acting.

But he has no ambitions to try his hand at directing, after a tricky experience on the Potter set.

"I want to continue acting, definitely," he said. "I want to keep doing it as long as I can, really.

"I don't think I'd really direct. "I'm not good at decisions or anyth ing like that.

"We got a bit of a taste of it on this one, because there are scenes where another actor is playing us. We have to give them pointers on how we walk and all of our mannerisms.

"I could never figure out anything to tell the guy who was playing me. He had video footage and watched the previous films."

While many child stars have felt uncomfortable talking about the roles that made them famous, Rupert insists he has nothing but praise and fond feelings for Harry Potter and Ron Wea sley.

So much so, in fact, that he has no idea how he will cope once the final film has been released and his time in the world of wizards has ended.

"The movies have become quite a big thing and I'm proud to be a part of it," he said. "I love it.

"It's weird, this one, because it doesn't feel like any of the others. "You do feel like it's starting to come to an end.

"I don't really know how it's going to feel on the last day when the last film is out and we never come back. I've never really imagined it ending."

And just like, Rupert obviously has no aversion to a bit of mischief.

Although Emma told us yesterday that the stars were forbidden from keeping props as souvenirs, Rupert confesses - proudly - to having helped himself to a few, including his wand.

He admitted: "I've got a tie and one of the chess pieces.

"The wand is also pretty cool."

Cell Phone Virus has reportedly struck one million in China.

Viruses have been making the rounds on cellphones for quite a while now, but it looks like China has now been hit by a particularly troublesome one.

According to Shanghai Daily, a so-called zombie virus disguised as an anti-virus app has infected more than one million cellphone users in the country, and it's left users' phones vulnerable to the malicious ......ers that created the virus.

They've naturally taken advantage of that access to not only spread the virus further, but cash in by spamming the phones with money-making links and other general annoyances -- all of which has also added up to about $300,000 a day in added text message charges for the users affected. What's more, while authorities have apparently tracked down the company that created the anti-virus application, it apparently insists that it had nothing to do with the virus, and that it's actually a victim of it as well.

The virus continually sends out text messages, costing the country's citizens $300,000 a day, according to InformationWeek, as reported by Shanghai Daily.

How does the virus spread?

The "zombie" virus is hidden in a fake anti-virus app. Once the app is installed, the virus sends all of the names and phone numbers on a user's SIM card to the ......ers, who then automatically take control of the phone, sending spam texts out to recipients.
