Trivia Question from Yesterday

Richard Bachman is a pen name used by what author?

       Stephen King                                                      Source

Richard Bachman is a pen name used by horror fiction author Stephen King.

At the beginning of Stephen King's career, the general view among publishers was that an author was limited to one book per year, since publishing more would be unacceptable to the public. King therefore wanted to write under another name, in order to increase his publication without over-saturating the market for the King "brand". He convinced his publisher, Signet Books, to print these novels under a pseudonym.

In his introduction to The Bachman Books, King states that adopting the nom de plume Bachman was also an attempt to make sense out of his career and try to answer the question of whether his success was due to talent or luck. He says he deliberately released the Bachman novels with as little marketing presence as possible and did his best to "load the dice against" Bachman. King concludes that he has yet to find an answer to the "talent versus luck" question, as he felt he was outed as Bachman too early to know.        Source

Grand Marshal Of 2016 Rose Parade

Ken Burns

Documentary filmmaker Ken Burns, known for long-form explorations of all-American subjects such as the Civil War and baseball, was named Tuesday as grand marshal of the 2016 Rose Parade.

The announcement was made as the Tournament of Roses prepares for the 126th edition of the annual floral spectacle on New Year's Day. The theme of the Pasadena parade is "Find Your Adventure."

"I've never been to the parade in person, so this will be a new adventure for me," Burns said in a statement.

Burns, 62, has received 14 Emmy Awards for his work on PBS documentaries such as "The Dust Bowl," ''Prohibition" and "Mark Twain." His latest, "The Roosevelts: An Intimate History," aired for 14 hours.

Antiquities Officials Scoff


Egyptian antiquities officials on Monday scoffed at claims by Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson (R-Fabulist) that Egypt's ancient pyramids were not built as pharaonic tombs but used to store grain.

"Does he even deserve a response? He doesn't," Antiquities Minister Mamdouh el-Damaty told the Associated Press on the sidelines of a news conference about recent thermal scans of the pyramids that revealed some anomalies that could lead to new discoveries about their construction.

Carson's comments have received little attention in Egypt, where people are accustomed to accepted expert views about the 4,500-year-old structures, but have drawn interest in the United States where the retired neurosurgeon has jumped to the top of the crowded Republican presidential field.

Mahmoud Afifi, the head of the Ancient Egyptian Antiquities Sector at the Antiquities Ministr,y said Carson's comments are similar to other inaccurate theories about the pyramids, including that those that say they were built by Atlanteans from a mythical lost continent.

Rare Broadway Honor

Michael Flatley

Few performers making their Broadway debuts get a street on Broadway renamed in their honour. Michael Flatley is an exception.

The trailblazing former "Riverdance" star was on hand Tuesday when a section of 42nd Street was dubbed "Flatley Way" in honour of him and his show "Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games," opening nearby at the Lyric Theatre.

"It's fantastic. It's a dream come true," he said on a rainy afternoon with the cheering support of his two dozen cast members in bright costumes. The renaming ceremony lasted only a few minutes, but the dapper Flatley seemed as jazzed about it as he does stepping on the 1,896-seat Lyric.

The show marks his official retirement from dancing and is the first time he's graced a Broadway stage, having already performed at Radio City Music Hall and Madison Square Garden.

Flatley, born into a blue-collar Irish-American family in Chicago, was catapulted to fame after co-choreographing "Riverdance," which was first performed as a seven-minute interval break in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1994.

Sells For $28.5 Million

Pink Diamond

A spectacular pink diamond, the largest of its kind to ever appear at auction, sold for $28.5 million (26.6 million euros) on Tuesday, narrowly beating auction house Christie's projection.

An unidentified bidder snatched up the 16.08-carat rare gemstone, kicking off a week of auctions that could see another coloured diamond set a new world record.

That stone, a 12.03-carat blue diamond described by experts as flawless, is being sold by rival auction house Sotheby's on Wednesday, and could fetch a record $55 million.

The pink diamond, owned by an American family for the past 15 years, is the largest cushion-shaped stone classified in the elite "fancy vivid" category to ever come to auction.

Christie's said that only three pink stones classified by the Gemological Institute of America as "fancy" and weighing more than 10 carats have been up for sale in 250 years.

Time Traveling Bush

'Baby Hitler'

Presidential candidate Jeb Bush (R-Terry Schiavo) says he once got an email asking if he would go back in time, if it were possible, and kill the baby Adolf Hitler.

"It said, 'If you could go back in time and kill baby Hitler, would you? I need to know,'" Bush told a Huffington Post reporter on the Bush campaign bus in New Hampshire last week.

Bush's answer, according to the video clip: "Hell, yeah, I would. Look, you gotta step up man."

Bush wryly tweeted Monday: "Gotta do it," referring to the Huffington Post item.

Charlie Brown Actor Pleads Guilty

Peter Robbins

A former child actor who was the voice of Charlie Brown in beloved "Peanuts" TV specials has pleaded guilty to making criminal threats.

Fifty-nine-year-old Peter Robbins of Oceanside entered pleas Tuesday. He's facing four years and eight months in prison.

Authorities say Robbins threatened to harm a mobile home park manager and San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore, offering $50,000 to have Gore killed.

Two years ago, Robbins pleaded guilty to threatening a former girlfriend and her plastic surgeon.

From age 9 to 13, Robbins was the voice of Charlie Brown in a series of 1960s animated classics, including "A Charlie Brown Christmas" and "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown."

Jason Aldean

Country star Jason Aldean dressed as rapper Lil Wayne as a Halloween costume, a representative confirmed after a photo surfaced of him wearing blackface makeup and a wig with dreadlocks.

The picture, first posted by the website, showed Aldean dressed in sunglasses, long dreadlocks and gold jewelry. Tyne Parrish, his publicist, said in an email on Tuesday that Aldean "dressed as rapper Lil Wayne for Halloween," but refused to comment further. A publicist for Broken Bow Records, his label, said they had no comment.

Aldean is one of country music's most popular performers, regularly selling out stadiums. He was named by the Recording Industry Association of America as the top digital selling male country artist in 2014. His last album, "Old Boots, New Dirt," was certified platinum.

Aldean recently performed at the Country Music Association Awards, where he was nominated for album of the year. He is also nominated for two awards, favorite male country artist and favorite country album, at the upcoming American Music Awards on Nov. 22.

In 2013, Julianne Hough's decision to don blackface for Halloween to portray her favorite character from the Netflix show "Orange is the New Black" sparked an uproar and drew an eventual apology from the actress, who said she never intended to hurt anyone.

Melting Ice Cap


The Arctic ice cap is melting faster than ever before, threatening to push so much fresh water into the North Atlantic that it could disrupt how the ocean regulates global temperatures, a prominent oceanographer has warned.

As the head of a 40-member climate mission to the Arctic aboard the Canadian Coast Guard ice breaker Amundsen, Belgian researcher Roger Francois is concerned about how the pace of climate change may affect the future of deep water pools and currents, and how this imbalance may worsen the effects of global warming.

Over the course of the past two million years, temperatures have risen and fallen in 100,000-year cycles, with a sheet of ice forming over the Arctic cap each time followed by a rapid melt, he told AFP.

The last warming occurred between 20,000 and 15,000 years ago, and led at that time to a rise in sea level of 130 meters (425 feet).

Each cycle is marked by an increase in carbon in the atmosphere. At the last change, the rate of carbon dioxide in the air increased from 180 parts per million to 280 ppm over 5,000 years. Until the Industrial Revolution, the level remained at 280 ppm, and since then it has skyrocketed to more than 400 ppm in 2015, he explained.

In Memory

Allen Toussaint

Legendary New Orleans musician Allen Toussaint, who racked up hits like "Working in the Coal Mine" and "Lady Marmalade" as a behind-the-scenes songwriter and producer before he gained new fame as a performer, died Tuesday, not long after a performance in Spain. He was 77.

Born in New Orleans' working class Gert Town neighbourhood, Toussaint went on to become one of the city's most legendary and celebrated performers and personalities.

In the beginning Toussaint was known mostly as an R&B songwriter and producer. He worked for the New Orleans-based Minit Records in 1960 before being drafted in the Army for two years.

He worked with such luminaries as Lee Dorsey, Art and Aaron Neville, Irma Thomas, the Meters, Joe Cocker and Ernie K-Doe. Thomas remembered Toussaint, who produced her songs "It's Raining" and "I Did My Part," as someone who wrote beautiful stories set to music.

In the late '50s and early '60s, Thomas and Toussaint and others would gather at Toussaint's mom's house to rehearse.

In 1973, with fellow songwriter Marshall Sehorn, he established his own recording studio called Sea-Saint Studio. There he worked with a succession of musicians including Paul Simon, Paul McCartney, Patti LaBelle, Cocker and Elvis Costello.

Toussaint had numerous hits to his name. He penned the 1966 Lee Dorsey classic "Working in the Coal Mine" and produced Dr. John's 1973 hit "Right Place, Wrong Time" and 1975's "Lady Marmalade" by the vocal trio Labelle.

His influence could be felt far outside of R&B circles. The song "Southern Nights," which Toussaint wrote and performed, was later covered by country star Glen Campbell and hip-hop artists in the '80s and '90s often sampled from his songs.

Toussaint is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame. In 2013 he was awarded the National Humanities Medal by President Barack Obama.

He had been expected to perform a benefit concert along with longtime friend Paul Simon in New Orleans on Dec. 8 at Le Petit Theatre to raise money for New Orleans Artists Against Hunger And Homelessness.

Hurricane Katrina in 2005 flooded not only his home but his Sea-Saint studio, forcing Toussaint to flee to New York. The studio never reopened.

Like many New Orleanians, Toussaint couldn't stay away from the Crescent City forever. Nearly eight years after Katrina, Toussaint returned permanently to the city of his birth and so much of his musical inspiration.

He is survived by two children.

A cow adorned with garlands and smeared with vermilion powder is pictured during a religious ceremony in Kathmandu, Nepal November 11, 2015. Hindus all over Nepal are celebrating the Tihar festival, also called Diwali, during which they worship cows, which are considered a maternal figure, and other animals. Also known as the festival of lights, devotees also worship the goddess of wealth Laxmi by illuminating and decorating their homes using garlands, oil lamps, candles and colourful light bulbs.
