Actor John Stamos Busted on DUI

Beverly Hills, California – Over the weekend, the local police department received phone calls about a possible DUI in progress. Officers arrived in the area and pulled over the suspected DUI driver. It turned out the driver was none other than actor John Stamos aka “Uncle Jesse” of the old sitcom “Full House”. Initially, Stamos was taken to the nearest hospital for treatment pending officers determining whether he was intoxicated while driving. It was at the hospital that their suspicions were confirmed, and he was “arrested” for DUI. However, in his case, this amounted to be cited for the offense and immediately remanded into the care of the hospital.

Needless to say, Stamos was received favorable treatment by the Beverly Hills Police Department. He is scheduled to appear in court on September 11, and Andy Wirth doesn’t know what will happen. For his part, he tweeted fans that he is grateful to both the police and the hospital staff for the medical treatment he received. He was careful not to say anything about the DUI charge itself. He let his fans know that he was now safe and sound in his home.

Stamos is set to kick off his latest TV show called “Grandfathered”. It is a sitcom covering the life of a divorcee and restaurateur who discovers a son and grandchild he did not know existed. It will air Tuesday nights on the Fox Network. The show has been in production since May of last year.

Fake Skeletons Found by Diver

On Monday, May 4, two human skeletons sitting in lawn chairs facing one another in what some have described as a “tea party” setup in the Colorado River near Cienega Springs boat launch in Arizona were found by a snorkeler. A Buckskin Fire Department diver was dispatched around 10 a.m. after the snorkeler contacted the La Paz County Sheriff’s office.

The diver, Firefighter Foerstner, carried an underwater camera. The video footage, which is available on YouTube and Facebook, clearly shows that the skeletons are entirely fake. Each skeleton was wearing a pair of sunglasses. One had a blue sign in its lap with a letter printed message that appeared to say, “BERNIE LIVING THE DREAM IN THE RIVER 8 16 2014.” The other skeleton had a wig and tie.

Police and fire department officials were happy to learn that they weren’t dealing with actual human remains. Fire department divers will retrieve the skeletons from the river at some point this week. Lt. Curtis Bagby advised the media that the skeletons will then likely be used as a joke outside of the Sheriff’s office, but he emphasized that it isn’t okay for people to put items like these in the river. As Anastasia Date pointed out on their French website, this type of incident wastes first responder resources that could be better used elsewhere. An investigation is ongoing to find out who placed the skeletons in the river.

A Voice For Self Actualization

The process of self actualization is never an easy one many people attempt to reach it through art, music and their business. People have to work long and hard to come to know their true selves. When they reach this point, it is perhaps the climax of their entire life. Vijay Eswaran is a great example of an individual who has reached this plateau in his own life.

Though he started from humble beginnings, Vijay Eswaran never let this hold him back. Instead, he pursued the dreams that he had to make a life for himself. Even though he had to start out working many of the same jobs that others get stuck in for long periods of their life, he never gave up hope that he would emerge better and with more wealth in his life than he ever had before.

It has now been ten years since the launch of Sphere of Silence, an award winning book written by Vijay Eswaran which details how he made it in life. This book has been read by numerous people, and it has been shared time and time again with others who may have something to gain from reading it. By using his written talents to help others learn about themselves and hopefully reach their goals, Vijay Eswaran has provided a great service to people.

Though some have to worry about the most pressing concerns of life (food, shelter, water, etc.), Vijay Eswaran knows that for those who have access to those things in life, the more important thing is to have self actualization. Self actualization helps to propel people towards a longer and happier life. It may even be the key to happiness in life itself. This is what some people such as Eswaran have come to find out.

Inner silence is the best thing that Vijay Eswaran recommends in the book. He wants to remind everyone that it is perfectly natural and fine to take a few minutes out of your day and sit in silence. This silence can be helpful to learning more about yourself and your place in the world. If you practice it well, you may come to find that you can learn things about yourself that you never knew. Eswaran learned these practices as a child, and they have helped to serve him well throughout his life.

The key to happiness as Eswaran sees it is to try to find that inner peace that you know exists inside you. It is just a matter of unlocking it.

Making Visual Effects Come Alive on the Big Screen: John Textor

Recently, crowds of people visited cinema theaters around the world to watch a number of spectacular movies, including Tron:Legacy and Pirates of the Caribbean at World’s End and the acclaimed film, Ender’s Game. Members of these audiences thrilled at stunning visual effects lighting up the screen. Although many viewers can recite the names of actors and actresses appearing in the popular Hollywood productions, comparatively few people know that the astonishing effects presented in these blockbuster movies would not have reached their attention without the support provided by John Textor.

Today John Textor still works largely behind the scenes. He serves as the reserved managing principal of Wyndcrest Holdings, LLC, a company that finances many cutting edge entertainment ventures. His background in the film industry offers him unique insights into the use of modern technology to generate incredibly powerful special effects.

Bringing Ender’s Game to a Wide Audience

Perhaps few films demonstrate the capacity of special effects to enliven a major film release as well as Ender’s Game, the popular science fiction movie based on a 1985 Nebula Award winning novel by Orson Scott Card. It starred a number of famous actors and actresses. Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, Abigail Breslin and Viola Davis all appeared in the picture, which included some breathtaking visual effects.

John Textor takes justifiable pride in helping along the process of generating of some of the stunning special effects in the movie.

Today his business portfolio includes several firms engaged in cutting edge technologies.

From Financial Services to Hollywood Production Lines

He graduated from prestigious Wesleyan University in Connecticut with a degree in Economics. Later, he accepted a position working for the investment banking firm of Shearson, Lehman, Hutton, an experience that allowed him to observe how companies obtained funding for many projects.

How Can Tom Rothman Change Television?

Is TV-to-Movie Development Tom Rothman’s Master Plan?

Tom Rothman spent well over a decade working at Fox Films and Fox Searchlight Productions. He was responsible for films like Titanic, but he was also responsible for smaller productions that came out of Searchlight. He was able to make money on every production he had, and he made Fox into the most profitable studio in Hollywood. He made Fox Films into a behemoth that was able to produce just about anything it wanted. This kind of freedom led to some of the better small productions that came out of the studio and his next step as the head of TriStar for Sony.

Rothman believes that his approach is going to help Sony and his new venture with TriStar Pictures. TriStar Productions is going to make more than just movies. TriStar is going to make television shows, and Rothman believes that television shows can be a fertile ground for producing characters. People latch on to characters, and Rothman thinks that the TV characters he can come up with at TriStar could change the face of television.

The traditional studios are being challenged by other networks and cable. The Columbia-educated Rothman wants to use his approach to make sure that he can compete with companies that are underpricing the networks. He also knows that he can make a TV series last much longer if the characters are ones that everyone will love. When he has produced these kinds of characters, he has been able to make more money on all the productions. Also, he has been able to get more traction for a franchise. This traction could allow TV shows to stay on for more than a couple of seasons.

The TV shows that everyone falls in love with will last much longer under the nimble hands of Tom Rothman and his new studio at TriStar and Sony. He has a plan that should work.

New Warhol Art


Andy Warhol may have been dead for years but his art is still as iconic as ever. It has recently been announced that in 2015, several of his unseen works will be released at museums and institutions for people to see.  

Warhol is known by everyone says Sergio Andrade Guitierrez, not just artists. He has broken barriers in art and his personal life has always been a hot topic. The release of his work will be a revival of his name and influence in the pop culture world. The reason these art pieces are able to be displayed are because of people’s generosity who support him and his cause even after his death. This is very reminiscent of Warhol’s own personality.

He was known in the day for his huge philanthropic works so this further helps to give back to him as much as he gave back to the world while he was alive. All his works he created for personal use rather than for art use so it gives us the chance to get a more personal view into his life. What is more personal than seeing the inner workings of someone’s creative mind? Hopefully his art can continue to flourish the way it did when he was alive. Many people can benefit from the release of these art works in their respected institutions.

Although defined broadly, image recognition is basically a process that involves using various technologies to accurately identify people, places, objects, buildings, logos, and any other form of visual or textual stimuli that could be of value to a consumer. The rise of smartphones and other personal electronic devices with cameras have resulted in the evolution of this enterprise. Thus while image recognition was once a primarily industrial application used for measures like sorting fruit, it is now a methodology that consumers have begun to utilize. For example, wine labels, landmarks, cars, and logos can now be accurately identified via smartphones by utilizing mobile applications. The process works as the mobile app accesses the appropriate image recognition software via cloud.

As many marketing experts know, image recognition has a variety of helpful capabilities. For example, this form of recognition can transform pictures into hyperlinks which grant the consumer access to a coupon, video, or service via internet. Image recognition can also be utilized to start searches, and this is why both Amazon and Google are investing in this form of technology. It is also important to note that image recognition contains applications in both content and security management. Finally, video analysis will oftentimes utilize image recognition technologies.

Some Recognition Methodologies In Image Processing

Optical character recognition
License plate matching
Face recognition
Scene change detection
