Barbara Bain was born Millicent Fogel in Chicago, the daughter of Russian Jewish immigrants. She graduated from the University of Illinois with a bachelor's degree in sociology. Developing an interest in dance, she moved to New York City, where she studied alongside Martha Graham. Dissatisfied with her career as a dancer, she went into modeling; jobs with Vogue, Harper's and other publications followed.
Between 1966 and 1969, Bain appeared-alongside her then husband, Martin Landau-in the major role of Cinnamon Carter in Mission: Impossible; she also starred as the character in a 1997 episode of Diagnosis: Murder. She won three consecutive Emmy Awards for Best Dramatic Actress for her performance in 1967, 1968 and 1969.
She starred opposite Landau again in the science-fiction TV series Space: 1999 (1975-77), as Dr. Helena Russell, and the made-for-TV film The Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island (1981).

Barbara Bain portrayed Cinnamon Carter on "Mission Impossible"…she won three Emmy awards for her portrayal…her acting never really stood out to me…That would be an interesting show to view a few episodes on Netflix or Hulu…Witch Titty Friday: How cold is a witches tit?
Lois Of Oregon said:
Try as I might, simply could not find anything funny about Barbara Bain...unless she is related to the Batman villain, or the Vulture Capitalist Firm, neither of which are particularly funny, either. Did find evidence that she might be Joan Collins, but that's about it.

Will Ferrell has backed out of a planned comedy that depicted Ronald Reagan's dementia.
The comedian was in talks to play the former president in a political satire that dealt with Reagan's Alzheimer's condition, but will no longer be moving forward with the project amid the ensuing controversy.
Ferrell's spokesperson said that he was never officially attached: "The Reagan script is one of a number of scripts that had been submitted to Will Ferrell which he had considered. While it is by no means an 'Alzheimers comedy' as has been suggested, Mr. Ferrell is not pursuing this project."
The logline for the project, via the Black List, reads: "When Ronald Reagan falls into dementia at the start of his second term, an ambitious intern is tasked with convincing the Commander-In-Chief that he is an actor playing the President in a movie."
The world's most powerful particle smasher, the Large Hadron Collider, went offline after a weasel caused a short circuit on a high-voltage transformer.
The collider suffered a "severe electrical perturbation" at 5:30 am (0330 GMT) Friday, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) said in its daily summary of activity at the giant lab straddling the French-Swiss border.
It said the cause was a "short circuit caused by fouine (weasel)" on a 66-kilovolt transformer, adding that its connections sustained some damage.
CERN spokesman Arnaud Marsollier told the BBC it would take a few days to repair the damage caused by the weasel, which did not survive its high-voltage encounter.
It's become an ironclad fact of life: Higher education is a prerequisite for a middle-class lifestyle. But a new joint study shows that spiraling costs are pushing higher education further from reach for lower- and middle-income families, while state lines can determine how much they'll pay.
The study by researchers at Vanderbilt University, the University of Pennsylvania, and the Institute for Research in Higher Education found that since 2008, overall college affordability has fallen 45 states, owing in part to slashed state spending on higher education in the years during and since the Great Recession.
As a result, low- and middle-income earners in certain states now must spend as much as 76 percent of their annual income to pay a student's tuition and expenses at a four-year public school, according to the study, The 2016 College Affordability Diagnosis. Things aren't any better at the community college level, where some households with income of $30,000 or less are likely to pay as much as 61 percent of their earnings for costs at a two-year public school.
Meanwhile, financial aid doesn't go as far as it did before, access to it has tightened, and a working student would need to work so many hours to pay the bills-and probably is already facing pressure to support him or herself, or a family-that college would take a backseat to finding a job, the study says. That makes taking on heavy debt through student loans the only option for young people who want to get an education to get ahead.
College falling out of reach is another burden for middle-class families to overcome at a time when roughly half of all well-paying jobs require some postsecondary education or technical training, and lower-income college students, who are largely African American or Latino, risk getting left behind in the new economy.
A senior Pentagon official criticized the House Republican-led investigation into the deadly attacks in Benghazi, Libya, saying the panel has made a "crescendo" of costly, duplicative and unnecessary requests, including some based on claims made on Facebook or talk radio.
Stephen C. Hedger, an assistant secretary of defense, expressed frustration with the Benghazi panel's potentially futile calls for witnesses and information, including some that were later withdrawn. Hedger also challenged a line of questioning of current and former military officials that focused on hypotheticals suggested by committee members or staff.
"This type of questioning poses the risk that your final report may be based on speculation rather than a fact-based analysis of what a military officer did do or could have done given his or her knowledge at the time of the attacks," Hedger wrote Thursday in a letter to Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., chairman of the House Benghazi panel.
The panel also requested an interview with a person identified only as "John from Iowa," who told a talk radio show he operated a camera for a remotely piloted aircraft and saw a video feed related to Benghazi on the night of the attacks, Hedger said.
At least seven previous congressional investigations and an independent panel led by a former U.N. ambassador and retired admiral have faulted security at the Benghazi compound, but debunked a range of other claims.

Human error, violations of combat rules and untimely equipment failures led to the mistaken U.S. aerial attack on a charity-run hospital in Afghanistan last fall that killed 42 people, a senior American general said Friday. Investigators called the attack a "disproportional response to a threat that didn't exist."
Sixteen military members were given administrative punishments that could stall or end careers, but no one faces a court martial. A senior defense official said one of the disciplined was a two-star general.
The AC-130 gunship, bristling with side-firing cannons and guns, fired on the hospital in the northern city of Kunduz for 30 minutes before the mistake was realized and the attack was halted, Gen. Joseph Votel told a news conference as he released the Pentagon's final report on the incident. The intended target was an Afghan intelligence agency building about 450 yards away.
Doctors Without Borders, the international charity organization whose hospital was destroyed, said Friday that it still wants an "independent and impartial" investigation. It said the punishments were inadequate and "out of proportion" to the deaths, injuries and destruction caused by the mistaken attack.
Investigators concluded that certain personnel failed to comply with the rules of engagement and the law of armed conflict, but Votel said those failures did not amount to a war crime.
The birth rate among teenagers in the United States has fallen to a historic low, with births by black and Hispanic teens down by nearly half over the past decade, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on Thursday.
Birth rates for all American teenagers are down 40 percent since 2006, thanks in part to prevention programs that address socioeconomic conditions such as unemployment and lower education levels, the CDC said.
The annual survey shows the continuation of a downward trend that began in 2006 and continued through 2014, the latest year of complete data, when nearly 250,000 babies were born to girls and women aged 15 to 19.
The birth rate of 24.2 per 1,000 women in this age group is down 9 percent from 2013 and the lowest among 15- to 19-year-olds since 1940, the CDC said.
For black teens the 2014 rate was 34.9 per 1,000 and for Hispanics it was 38.0.

The board that oversees California's high-speed rail project approved a revised $64 billion plan Thursday that calls for the train to go from the Central Valley to the San Jose area before it heads to Southern California, acknowledging the political reality that federal and private financing has fallen far short of what backers had hoped.
The board gave its approved at a brief meeting in Sacramento, a week after postponing a planned vote to make changes to the revised business plan.
Central Valley lawmakers and activists complained vocally after a planned stop in Merced already under construction was left out of the most recent proposal for the bullet train released this winter, prompting officials to reverse course again last week and restore the stop.
Rail board Chairman Dan Richard stressed Thursday that high-speed rail officials heard the complaints of Madera and Merced officials who were outraged when they learned plans called for their cities to be cut out of the first phase of work.
The first stretch would begin operating in 2025, three years later and 50 miles shorter than the original planned route that would have first connected to the San Fernando Valley.

Three of the zoo's four cubs were born prematurely on March 8 as part of a breeding program for the endangered big cats, requiring round-the-clock care and hand feeding. This cub, an orphan from Oregon who's mother could not produce enough milk to feed him, is six weeks old.
