Apasionada: primera telenovela juvenil dominicana

Santo Domingo.- Al elegir el nombre de “Apasionados” para la primera telenovela juvenil dominicana, decretaron lo que sería el motor de los actores y todo el equipo de producción de este proyecto, pues el permanecer hasta catorce horas corridas filmando diariamente solo encuentra explicación en la pasión que sienten por el arte y la propuesta que mañana se estrenará en el ámbito nacional a partir de las 8 de la noche en Antena Latina, canal 7.

Estamos muy nerviosos con el estreno, queremos saber cuál será la reacción de la gente”, manifestó entusiasmado el elenco de jovenes actores.


El rumbo de la trama así como el número de capítulos grabados dependerán de la recepción que tenga en la audiencia la historia de ocho jovenes que coinciden laborando en un bar en el que descubren tener una pasión en común: el baile.

“En primera instancia tenemos en agenda grabar unos cien capítulos pero esto va a depender mucho de la gente. Las técnicas que estamos utilizando es ir grabando mientras se va transmitiendo, es una metodología que se utiliza en muchos países”, explicó Daniel Casals, director y creador de la telenovela.

La ministra de Cultura y Comunicaciones de Haití, Marie-Laurence Jocelyn Lassegue, dijo que los ciudadanos estadounidenses fueron detenidos mientras intentaban el viernes por la noche cruzar a República Dominicana con los niños de entre dos meses hasta 12 y 14 años

La policía fronteriza "vio un bus con muchos niños. Treinta y tres niños. Cuando le pedimos los documentos por estos menores no tenían ningún tipo de documento", explicó la ministra.

Nuevos misterios sobre Da Vinci

La Mona Lisa es un autorretrato de Leonardo da Vinci?

La leyenda de Leonardo da Vinci está rodeada de misterios: ¿Cómo murió? ¿Los restos enterrados en un castillo francés son realmente los suyos? ¿Fue la "Mona Lisa" un autorretrato?
 
Un grupo de científicos italianos quiere resolver algunos de esos rompecabezas analizando sus restos.
Ya han pedido permiso a las autoridades francesas para exhumar el cadáver y hacer análisis de ADN y de antigüedad.

Si el cráneo está intacto, los científicos podrían tratar de esclarecer un enigma de siglos: la identidad de la Mona Lisa. O, más específicamente, haciendo una reconstrucción virtual y física del rostro de da Vinci, se podría determinar si la cara sonriente del cuadro puede ser la del maestro renacentista, como sospechan algunos, dijeron a la AP expertos involucrados en el proyecto.

"No sabemos qué encontraremos cuando se abra la tumba; tal vez hallemos apenas polvo", expresó Giorgio Gruppioni, un antropólogo que participa en el proyecto. "Pero si los restos están bien preservados, hay un archivo biológico que registra los eventos en la vida de una persona, y a veces en la muerte".

Jamie Foxx Not Stepping Into Simon's Idol Shoes

Jamie Foxx would like to take over Simon Cowell's judging gig on American Idol, but the singer and actor is just too busy!




"I would love to do it but I don't think I would be able to do it," he told me at his star-studded pre-Grammy party last night. "I don't think I could fill Simon's shoes, but I would give it another perspective...what I want is for the kids to go from being contest participants to artists and that's where I would come in."



And although his A-list bash at L'Ermitage Beverly Hills was filled with his famous friends including Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jessica Alba, Gerard Butler, Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel and Paris Hilton, Jamie dished about who he really wants to see this Sunday at the Grammys...Keep Reading »

Christina wants babies!

A year and a half ago, Christina Applegate announced she'd been diagnosed with breast cancer and had undergone a double mastectomy. Now, the Emmy-winning actress, 38, is stronger than ever and has a brand-new outlook on life. “You look at life a little bit differently,” Christina told In Touch while being honored at the EIF’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund event on January 27. “You don’t let any stress into your life, and you do a total 180 from where you were.” Christina, who has been dedicating a lot of her time to promoting awareness about the disease, admits that she has plenty of things to accomplish in the future. “I want to work with Meryl Streep, I want to go to Greece, and I may want to jump out of a plane,” she said. “And babies, lots of babies.

Is Brittany Murphy's Widower Hard Up for Cash?

Poor Brittany Murphy just can't be laid to rest.




The cause of death has yet to be released pending toxicology results, and Brittany's oddball husband, Simon Monjack, continues to raise eyebrows...



Close pals to the late star say her widowed hubby has been blatantly reaching out to them, trying to "cozy up" to Murphy's friends, in addition to showing bizarre-like allegiance on Brittany's behalf. Just yesterday Simon threatened to file a wrongful-death suit against Warner Bros., claiming Murphy's supposed firing from the Happy Feet sequel played a big part in her early passing (uh, we're Team WB here, FYI).



Friends of Brittany's, and therefore obligatory acquaintances of Simon's, tell us Monjack's weird behavior doesn't exactly come as a surprise right now.Keep Reading »

Rihanna Flying Solo to Grammys—Where's the BF?

It's Grammy time again, folks, and this year we're happy to report Rihanna will be in attendance at the awards show, rather than in admittance to the hospital like she was last year.



Thankfully, Ri-Ri has moved on from that hideous woman-attacker Chris Brown, and despite the fact the pop princess claims she's single, we can swear she's still very much dating muscle-tat man Dodger Matt Kemp.
However, E! can also confirm that her new boy will not be attending the Grammy Awards with her on Sunday.


Yikes, trouble in paradise already?



A source close to the couple tells E! News that Kemp isn't exactly thrilled about the amount of media attention he has gotten since the two started dating.

According to our lovebird insider, Matt is upset given "the negative publicity he's received over the last couple weeks."..Keep Reading »

Lady Gaga Plays "Telephone" With Grammys Secrets

The Game Isn't Playing, Denies Fathering Tila Tequila's Baby

So, Tila Tequila has identified her baby daddy. And he has gone right ahead and denied it.
The Game, whose real name is Jayceon Taylor, has said that he is not the father of Tequila's child, a rep for the rapper tells E! News.

Someone better tell the Shot at Love star, who shared the Game-changing news earlier Friday, after being spotted last night visiting Jay-Z's L.A. studio, where the Game was recording. She told E! that she was hesitant to reveal his identity at first, but that he had since given her the go-ahead to talk about it, because "it would eventually come out anyway."

And we have a feeling that there's a lot more on its way out.

"Just left TMZ settin the record straight, my gyrl aint like that Tila Tequila sh!t !" the Game tweeted this afternoon.

Kristen and Anna: Too Good for Twilight?

Twilight darlings Kirsten Stewart and Anna Kendrick are quickly breaking out of their vampire coffins. We're all aware by now that Anna has received tons of acclaim for her performance alongside George Clooney in Up in the Air, and Kristen was the talk of Sundance town.




Got it?



That's why we think yesterday's item about Kristen and Robert Pattinson was totally fair game. We're not "pitting them against each other," as so many Twit-screamers say, but pointing out R & K both have the opportunities with their upcoming flicks to become major players in this entertainment biz.



Heck, while Ashley Greene is shooting some horror movie in Germany and Kellan Lutz is losing Barbarian roles, Kendrick is picking out her Oscar gown! And According to people who have worked with Kristen, she, too is already headed for Oscar's stage—and we don't mean as a presenter:



"Kristen's got this innate quality, that gift, that not everyone has," Welcome to the Rileys director Jake Scott told us. "She's magic. I can see it happening. I can see her becoming a major star. She's grounded, which is important to say about her. She's really grounded. She's a cool chick."



Oscar nominated actress Melissa Leo, who costars with K.Stew in Welcome, was eager to throw in her experienced two cents on Kristen's potential.



"I'm sure she'll be up there on that stage one day, I'm positive."



Leo, whose performance in Frozen River last year put her in a gown alongside Meryl Streep and Kate Winslet, says she sees a lot of herself in young K.Stew.



"Something happens with actors who are committed to what they do. We enjoyed each other because we were so serious about work, we adored each other.".Keep Reading »

Fashion Police: Mariah Carey's Golden Globes

The 2010 Golden Globes were all about the, well, golden globes—so much décolletage on display!
Starting off the trend was good old Mariah Carey, who showed off her bronzed girls in a plunging Hervé Léger gown. No surprise, coming from this flashy star.
Not be outdone, Mad Men's Christina Henricks made sure her breast best assets were on display in a ruffly strapless champagne Christian Siriano frock.
But we didn't expect to see such low-cut styles on stars like Anna Paquin, who shimmered and sparkled in a deep-V Stella McCartney dress. Or demure Olivia Wilde, playing peekaboo in a skintastic Gucci gown.

Chris Brown Makes Another Bad Decision

Chris Brown has been hanging out at the runway shows during Paris Fashion Week. Seems harmless enough, right?

The R&B singer who had that whole nasty thing with Rihanna made a wise choice when he decided to see Jean Paul Gaultier's presentation. He's an iconic couture designer after all, and his shows are notoriously clever.
So clever, in fact, that Gaultier got in on the action, covering his face with makeup to look like blood and bruises in order to match his boxing-themed collection.



But then Brown had to go and pose for pictures with him. Awkward!.Keep Reading »

Jon Voight Weighs In on Brangelina Breakup "Nonsense"

Angelina Jolie ain't talking about those pesky breakup rumors, but her dad's ready to step into the breach.


En route to a Beverly Hills eatery for lunch today, Jon Voight was peppered with questions about whether his daughter's relationship with Brad Pitt doomed.
His answer?
"I don't want to give attention to all this nonsense," said Voight, who was estranged from Jolie until recently.

Voight was suprised by the number of paparazzi perched outside Nate 'n Al deli, and he knew they weren't there for him.



"Who's here?" he asked the pack. Turns out Gwen Stefani was grabbing a bite with her kids.
And, as far as we know, Gwen isn't splitting with Gavin, either.Keep Reading »

Rihanna's 6-Year-Old "Angel on Earth" Loses Leukemia Battle

She was truly an angel on earth."

.¿Nacen o se hacen gays?


"La homosexualidad no es considerada ya como patología, sino como una orientación sexual; inclusive tiene fundamentos genéticos y es simplemente una variante de la diversidad en la elección de pareja que se manifiesta no sólo en el ser humano, sino en todos los mamíferos", señaló el médico genetista Rafael Rico García Rojas para el dirio El Universal.






Pasos para el cambio:

- En 1992 la homosexualidad dejó de considerarse como patológica en el DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, de la Asociación Psiquiátrica de EU).

- Luego se estudió si esta orientación tiene una base genética o no. Esto aún no se sabe a ciencia cierta, "pero definitivamente los homosexuales nacen, no se hacen", aseguró la sexóloga Isabel Saro Cervantes para el mismo diario mexicano.

Las investigaciones al respecto "ya no se basa sólo en descripciones anecdóticas ni en casos clínicos aislados (caso por ejemplo de la labor de Sigmund Freud, padre del psicoanálisis): está centrada en encuestas, estudios de mercado, censos, que manejan grandes muestras mucho más representativas de la población homosexual real", escribe la investigadora y psicoterapeuta Marina Castañena Gutman en su libro 'La nueva homosexualidad'.

Parejas gays con hijos

Y con base en datos de la Asociación Psicológica también de EE.UU., la psicoterapeuta dice que se ha encontrado, gracias al estudio de cientos de miles de casos (tan sólo en EU había en 2000, 164 mil hogares formados por parejas de homosexuales con hijos) que los padres del mismo sexo no difieren en nada de sus contrapartes heterosexuales en términos de su compromiso, amor y.Leer más »

La carne de cerdo, mejor que el Viagra

¿Sabrá algo o habla al tanteo? La presidenta de Argentina acaba de lanzar un anuncio importante para levantarle el ánimo al pueblo. Cristina Fernández ha recomendado comer más carne de cerdo para mejorar la vida sexual, un remedio, que según ella, es mucho más eficiente que tomar Viagra.



Entre risas, la mandataria afirmó temer por la reacción de su antecesor y esposo, Néstor Kirchner, al escuchar sus comentarios, pero no obstante, sin pelos en la lengua, dio testimonio de los resultados de su última ingesta de porcino en la sureña localidad de El Calafate, donde el matrimonio se refugia para descansar.

La industria porcina agradece este impulso que buscará no sólo levantar las ventas de la carne de cerdo sino la pasión en los varones de las pampas. La presidenta argentina dice: "Yo soy fanática de la carne de cerdo y no lo digo para quedar bien o para hacerme de propaganda de nada", ha confesado con gran humor la mandataria en un acto tras la firma de un acuerdo con la industria porcina.

"Me acabo de enterar de un dato que yo desconocía y que es que la ingesta de cerdo mejora la actividad sexual. No es un dato menor. Además es mucho más gratificante comerse un cerdito a la parrilla que tomar Viagra", dijo Fernández, quien se ganó aplausos calurosos de los asistentes al acto.Leer más »

The 17-year-old doesn't go all Taylor Momsen on us, or even Miley for that matter. Instead he just acted like a nice, grateful well-behaved young man, so it was up to the stylists and Mario Testino to make him come off more interesting for the mag's three covers.

Hollywood Tweets RIPs to Salinger and Zinn


s a sad day in the literary world with the passing of writers J.D. Salinger (The Catcher in the Rye) and Howard Zinn (The People's History of the United States), and Hollywood is feeling it.




John Cusack has taken to his Twitter page to honor them both.



"JD Salinger—what can one say? There was no equal no one within miles. Franny and Zooey—do it all for the fat lady—the perfect writing," he says. "Howard Zinn—a great man. People's History of the United States a must read for any free thinker—the passing of a master."
Ben Affleck released a statement on his friend Zinn, while Olivia Wilde, Elizabeth Banks, Kirstie Alley, Eliza Dushku, Rainn Wilson, Ryan Seacrest and more are tweeting their two cents:

Affleck: "Howard had a great mind and was one of the great voices in the American political life. He taught me how valuable—how necessary—dissent was to democracy and to America itself. He taught that history was made by the everyman, not the elites. I was lucky enough to know him personally, and I will carry with me what I learned from him—and try to impart it to my own children—in his memory."

Wilde: "Howard Zinn, a true hero of mine, whom I never got to thank for his donation to Artists for Peace and Justice. RIP…If you haven't read A People's History of the United States, you may want to run to the book store now."

Banks: "Nine Stories is one of my favorite books of all time, and should be read in honor of JD Salinger."Keep Reading »

Rerun Date Set for John Travolta Extortion Trial


It's been just over a year since Jett Travolta's tragic death in the Bahamas. But his family will have to wait at least nine more months for any real sense of closure.

Brangelina Breakup Is Real!


Well, of course, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are breaking up.
They're breaking up for awards season.
Think about it: If you were Pitt and Jolie, and you were not in the Oscar running, and therefore threatened with irrelevancy by the likes of Jeff Bridges—Jeff Bridges!—until March—March!—what would you do?
You'd get bored. You'd get resentful. You'd concoct all sorts of ways to divert attention away from the statuette-hoarding Meryl Streeps of the world.
Grow a funny goatee? (Been there, done that, didn't work.) Have a baby, or three? (Been there, done that, loads of work.) Break up?
Of course!

Now, you wouldn't break up in the manner that mere mortals break up—with fights, lawyers and ice-cream therapy. No, you'd break up in the manner that public figures break up—with planted stories, planted quotes and, above all, orchestrated photo ops.
To sell your ennui, you'd walk through an airport looking scraggly (Pitt), haggard (Jolie) and unhappy (both). To sell your despair, you'd turn up the notch on your body odor. To sell your disconnectedness, you'd deep-six joint appearances.
For camera purposes, you'd be broken up. And a bigger story than the stupid old Oscars.
Take that, Christoph Waltz, whoever you are!
Do we talk the talk of the crazy? Perhaps, but we've got company. The Los Angeles Times' Gold Derby blog asks whether Pitt is sitting out awards shows because he's "mad they're snubbing him."

You think? We do.Read More »

Obama woos US with promises of new jobs


Mr Obama told Congress: "Jobs must be our number one focus in 2010."




He defended early and expensive actions to save the economy, but acknowledged that he had underestimated public anger over the economy despite the official end of recession.



"The worst of the storm has passed, but the devastation remains. One in 10 Americans still cannot find work, many businesses have shuttered and home values have declined," he said.
He continued: "I campaigned on the promise of change - change we can believe in, the slogan went. And right now, I know there are many Americans who aren't sure if they still believe we can change, or that I can deliver it."Read More »

Come queso, y el vino manchará menos tus dientes


Dicen que una copita de vino tinto no hace mal, al contrario, que ayuda con la circulación sanguínea, ya que sus polifenoles elevan los niveles de los gases de óxido nítrico en la sangre, lo cual ayuda a ensanchar los vasos sanguíneos.




Pero el vino, así como el café, y el té, suele mancharnos los dientes.


Según la doctora Laura Torrado, odontóloga con práctica en Nueva York que se ha desempeñado en tratamientos cosméticos, el tanino en el vino es el responsable de manchar los dientes, y que los vinos tintos con alto contenido el ácido tánico, como el Malbec de Argentina, son los que más manchan los dientes. Los vinos de Chile tienen un tanino más liviano, por lo que los manchan menos.Leer más »

Este químico, que puede encontrarse en el lugar más insospechado de la casa, es considerado como potencialmente cancerígeno por algunos estudios, pero es ahora cuando también se le vincula con enfermedades de la tiroides.Leer más »

Manchester United 3 Manchester City 1


Tight battle: Micah Richards (right) vies with Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney Photo: GETTY IMAGES


22.04: Fletcher deservedly man of the match for turning the midfield into his own personal sphere of influence. And that's about it for tonight. See you soon.
22.02: Post-match interviews. Rooney expresses his unbridled elation in a language I suppose we must call English. Fletcher is marginally more articulate, but only marginally.

22.01: So it's Aston Villa v Manchester United in the Carling Cup final. That takes place on February 28 at Wembley.
21.58: Quick recap of the game: after a goalless first half, Scholes put United ahead at the start of the second period. Carrick doubled the lead as United crawled all over City, but a slice of brilliance from Tevez brought City back into it. And that was that, until Le Wayne popped up in injury time to do what United have been doing since time immemorial. Read More »

Buen sexo, mejor salud


la hora del romance, pocos piensan cómo la actividad entre las sábanas les fortalece el sistema inmunológico, les ayuda a quemar unas calorías y mejorar la condición cardiovascular, pero estos son algunos de los beneficios del sexo, algo así como un bien añadido.

Relax con sexo

Si tu pareja cae rendida como un bebé después de una sesión amorosa, no es indiferencia, es que hacer el amor es relajante e induce el sueño. Tras la cama, la calma. El ejercicio en la recámara también aumenta el riego sanguíneo y la oxigenación pulmonar que también mejoran el semblante y la ansiedad. Leer más »

La importancia del trasero


El valor de un buen trasero no se discute, es algo para apreciarse. Hombres y mujeres aprecian esa parte del cuerpo donde la espalda pierde su nombre, pero navegando por la red me encontré un artículo interesante donde se explica por qué nos gustan tantos las pompas, glúteos, nalgas o como prefieran llamarlas.




Las nalgas están en todas partes, dicen los autores del documental de la BBC. Y sí, donde esté un ser humano habrá traseros, grandes, pequeños, formados o deformados.

'La cara oculta de las nalgas', de la documentalista Caroline Pochon y el periodista Allan Rothschild, ofrece un recorrido por los diferentes significados que esa parte del cuerpo humano tuvo en varias disciplinas, desde el arte hasta la sociología.
La investigación recuerda que, lo que para unos es sólo un músculo, para otros supone algo más relevante. "La patria, el honor, la libertad, nada existe: el universo gira en torno a un par de nalgas", sostuvo el filósofo francés Jean-Paul Sartre.
Cuánta verdad la de este pensador francés. Pero no se necesita ser un gran filósofo para entender y sentir lo que produce una mujer caminando contoneándose suavemente.Leer más »
