Let me begin, by saying I met Edward Rouse, AKA Ed, approximately 20 years ago, as I just started my career as an journalist, with my Liberty News Online Magazine, which I started with a group of journalist friends.
One a few occasions, we bumped into each other at different , events we were covering for our Liberty News Online Magazine, it was at the Hilton hotel , The 100 Black men Gala , where I went and introduced myself to Ed, as I was networking, with different people.
Approximately 3 Weeks ago, Ed was going in and out of hospital, he had cancer, heart issues, and breathing problems, I visited him on few occasions, and then they bought him in for the final time, where the Doctors pronounced him, brain dead. He was moved to an hospice after that and 2 days later he passed away.
Mr Noor and his professional staff , took the Body of Ed, from the hospital , prepared it fully at their funeral home and then had the body taken to the cemetery, in a hearse .Which they did not charge a single penny for their services, we will be ever grateful to Bro, Noor and his staff with helping us with this. Humanitarians of the World Inc , and Al Caplan Contributed for the grave opening expenses.
Rosanna Arquette is an American actress, film director, and film producer. She was nominated for an Emmy Award for her performance in the 1982 TV film The Executioner’s Song, and won the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for the 1985 film Desperately Seeking Susan. Her other film roles include After Hours (1985), The Big Blue (1988), Pulp Fiction (1994), and Crash (1996). She also directed the 2002 documentary Searching for Debra Winger, and starred from 2006 to 2007 in the ABC sitcom What About Brian?
Arquette has appeared in both television and screen films. In 1982, she earned an Emmy Award nomination for the TV film The Executioner’s Song. However, she was unhappy with the film’s nude scene, remarking in an interview that the idea of the general public seeing her naked made her feel uncomfortable and exploited, and that most of the offers she’d received since demanded that she similarly expose herself.
Her first starring role was in John Sayles’s 1983 film, Baby It’s You, a highly regarded but little seen film. She starred in Desperately Seeking Susan (1985) alongside pop singer Madonna.
In 2010, Rosanna Arquette became Goodwill Ambassador for The Womanity Foundation.
We had the pleasure of interviewing Rosanna Arquette at the Apne Aap ,The 2019 last Girl Award Dinner ,celebrating International Day of the Girl, where Rosanna and her daughter Zoe Bleu Sidel were honored.
Apne Aap was founded by twenty-two women from Mumbai’s red light district, with a vision of a world where no woman could be bought or sold.
The twenty-two women who founded were the subject of Ruchira Gupta’s Emmy award winning documentary, “The Selling of Innocents,” which exposed the trafficking of women and girls from Nepal to India. During the production of the film, the women formed a connection with each other that ended their isolation and gave them the strength to resist their situation.
The Following were honored at the International Day of the Girl: Fisk Johnson,(Chairman & CEO of SC Johnson), Rosanna Arquette ,(Pulp Fiction, Desperately Seeking Susan), Zoe Bleu Sidel, (artist, poet, and actor), Shandra Woworuntu, (trafficking survivor leader), Nandana Sen, author, actor, child’s rights activist and Simone Monasebian,(NY Representative of United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime).
Master of Ceremonies was Reshma Shetty (Royal Pains, Bombay Dreams), Spoken Word Performance by Staceyann Chin (poet & author of The Other Side of Paradise: A Memoir), Gala Co-Chairs were Gloria Steinem and Ashley Judd. Close to 200 people were in attendance, to support this very worthwhile cause .
Kevin David Sorbo is an American actor. He had starring roles in two television series: as Hercules in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, and as Captain Dylan Hunt in Andromeda.
In 1994, he got his breakthrough leading role as the Ancient Greek mythical demigod Hercules in a series of five television films which aired as part of Universal Television’s Action Pack.
The first film was Hercules and the Amazon Women which aired in April and the fifth film Hercules in the Maze of the Minotaur aired in November.
The ratings success of these films paved the way for the commissioning of the television series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys which started airing in syndication from January 1995 and ran for six seasons. The series made Sorbo an international star and was one of the highest rated syndicated television shows at the time.
In late 1997 while on a publicity tour for Kull the Conqueror and between the fourth and fifth seasons of Hercules, the newly engaged Sorbo experienced an aneurysm in his shoulder which caused four strokes.
As a result, he was weakened for the next several years, a condition kept secret from the public while he recovered. During the last two seasons of Hercules (the fifth and sixth, which aired in 1998 and 1999), Sorbo had a reduced filming schedule to accommodate his condition, and more guest stars were featured in the show in order to reduce Sorbo’s duties.
The strokes, thought to be triggered when chiropractic manipulation of his shoulder released blood clots from the aneurysm, left Sorbo with a permanent 10 percent vision loss, weakness, impaired balance, and migraines. In his 2011 autobiography True Strength, Sorbo revealed the details of his injury and how his wife Sam helped him recover.
Vieri was named in the FIFA 100, a list of the 125 .
greatest living footballers selected by Pelé as a part of FIFA’s centenary celebrations.
A prolific goalscorer, for a number of years, he was regarded as one of the best strikers in Europe, leading to him becoming the world’s most expensive player in 1999 when Inter Milan paid Lazio £32 million (€43 million) for his services.
Something of a footballing nomad, Vieri played for no fewer than 12 clubs throughout his career, mainly in Italy, but also in Spain and France. He started his career with Torino in 1991, but his most notable and successful spells were those at Juventus, Atlético Madrid, Lazio and Inter, clubs with which he won several honours.
As well as picking up several winners medals during his career, Vieri also claimed many individual awards including the Pichichi Trophy and Capocannoniere awards for the league’s top scorer in Spain and Italy respectively, and the Serie A Italian Footballer of the Year twice.
At international level, Vieri scored 23 goals in 49 appearances for Italy between 1997 and 2005, and is the joint ninth-highest goalscorer for his national team, alongside Francesco Graziani. He is also Italy’s highest ever goalscorer in the FIFA World Cup, along with .
Roberto Baggio and Paolo Rossi, with a combined nine goals from nine matches at the 1998 and 2002 editions of the tournament; he also took part at Euro 2004.
