TWITTER Katherine Witt "Stars Spy Connection" Ice Skate to 'Bad' HERE: http://bit.ly/dJugs #michaeljackson FOLLOW NICHOPOULOUZO @mrjyn http://www.twitter.com/mrjyn FOR MORE MAJ SPY NEWS AND ESPIONAGE VIDEO~ Dasi Sparkle reveals Michael Jackson and other western performers were spied on by East German secret police Staci. According to the news Jack sons 1988 concert in Berlin was cause for more than a stir from fans there, as the then communist regime was apparently dealing with an already restive East German youth movement. Files from the former East German secret police also suggest that Ice Skating double Gold Medalist Katerina Witt and other stars may have been used in diverting attention from Jacksons and other concerts during this time. Katrina hosted a concert featuring Brian Adams during this time, which actually did draw some attention away from what were feared to be influential performances from the west. Ironically, Katarina gave an exhibition in late 88 in the midst of her Calgary Gold Medal quest featuring none other than Michael's song Bad. Was this performance the Stasi thumbing its nose at the west and Jackson, declaring who was really bad? The Stasi evidently put forth considerable effort to watch Michael before his concert on 19 June, 1988. The documents obtained also revealed the Stasis fear of unrest from young people who apparently intended to listen to the concert from over the Berlin Wall or from in front of the Brandenburg Gate. Mitchael's West Berlin performances of Bad below, reveal a little of the power these celebrities exuded. Katrina spat the time of this Bad espionage crisis, the LA Times and other newspapers billed the Jackson Witt performances as something of a match of ideals, calling Michaels and Katerina's relative concerts an East-West battle of the bands, which according to the numbers of people at each, Katrina and Brian Adams likely won, given there were nearly 3 times as many fans attending Witt's extravaganza. Interestingly, in the Winter Olympics of 88 East German athletes won more Gold Medals than the Americans. Talk about a war of the wills! Perhaps the CIA (if they were using stars for democracy) fought a losing battle in this fact or fiction cold war. Michael never did really come off as the James Bond type for me. The real impact Michael had however, cannot be underestimated. This is just another peripheral example of the appeal and power of such personalities. @mrjyn #michaeljackson #Yoruba #video #mrjyn @nichopoulouzo #despicable ~ nichopoulouzo

The village has been in mourning since his death on 25 June, and will continue until a new prince is announced on Sunday. Township Krindjabo, capital of Sanwi, a small kingdom in the southeast Côte d'Ivoire, enthroned Michael Jackson 'king-in-waiting,' or prince of the Anyi people on a visit to the country in 1992. The villagers appealed without success to have the body returned. They have decided he needs to be properly buried according to the customs of the Sanwi kingdom. "He was our son. We call his body. We demand that his body be buried with dignity," explained Ahissan Nogbou, spokesman for the King of Sanwi, of the Akan group, which extends from the Cote d'Ivoire to Togo. "It would be a shame, because in the Akan tradition, he is still a prince," he argues, draped in a black mourning cloth, under the gaze of King Amon, whom according to custom, never speaks in public. "His stay lasted 30 minutes. He was crowned Amalaman Anoh, named after a former prince of the kingdom, under the palaver tree, which stands majestically in the middle of the village." *taken from International sources and translated from French to English by ~ nichopoulouzo http://www.visualguidanceltd.blogspot.comhttp://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/8180068.stm
FOLLOW NICHOPOULOUZO @mrjyn http://www.twitter.com/mrjyn FOR MORE LIKE... A Brief History of Animals in Space Before humans actually went into space, one of the prevailing theories of the perils of space flight was that humans might not be able to survive long periods of weightlessness. For several years, there had been a serious debate among scientists about the effects of prolonged weightlessness. American and Russian scientists utilized animals - mainly monkeys, chimps and dogs - in order to test each country's ability to launch a living organism into space and bring it back alive and unharmed. On January 31, 1961, Ham, whose name was an acronym for H olloman A ero M ed, became the first chimpanzee in space, aboard the Mercury Redstone rocket on a sub-orbital flight very similar to Alan Shepard's. Ham was brought from the French Camaroons, West Africa, where he was born July 1957, to Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico in 1959. The original flight plan called for an altitude of 115 miles and speeds ranging up to 4400 mph. However, due to technical problems, the spacecraft carrying Ham reached an altitude of 157 miles and a speed of 5857 mph and landed 422 miles downrange rather than the anticipated 290 miles. Ham performed well during his flight and splashed down in the Atlantic Ocean 60 miles from the recovery ship. He experienced a total of 6.6 minutes of weightlessness during a 16.5-minute flight. A post-flight medical examination found Ham to be slightly fatigued and dehydrated, but in good shape otherwise. Ham's mission paved the way for the successful launch of America's first human astronaut, Alan B. Shepard, Jr., on May 5, 1961. Upon the completion of a thorough medical examination, Ham was placed on display at the Washington Zoo in 1963 where he lived alone until September 25, 1980. He then was moved to the North Carolina Zoological Park in Asheboro. Upon his death on January 17, 1983, Ham's body was preserved and loaned by the Smithsonian Institution to the International Space Hall of Fame in Alamogordo, New Mexico. ENOS: Enos became the first chimp to orbit the earth on November 29, 1961, aboard a Mercury Atlas rocket. Although the mission plan originally called for three orbits, due to a malfunctioning thruster and other technical difficulties, flight controllers were forced to terminate Enos' flight after two orbits. Enos landed in the recovery area and was picked up 75 minutes after splashdown. He was found to be in good overall condition and both he and the Mercury spacecraft performed well. His mission concluded the testing for a human orbital flight, achieved by John Glenn on February 20, 1962. Enos died at Holloman Air Force Base of a non-space related case of dysentery 11 months after his flight. ~ nichopoulouzo
FOLLOW NICHOPOULOUZO @mrjyn http://www.twitter.com/mrjyn FOR MORE 'Exquisite Bodies' NEWS AND VIDEO *Please note that the exhibition contains material that some visitors may find disturbing! Anatomical Venus 'Anatomical Venuses' are extremely realistic models of idealised women. These figures consist of removable parts that can be 'dissected' - a breast plate is lifted to reveal the internal organs, often with a fetus in the womb. In the 19th century, the anatomical Venus formed the centrepiece of museums and travelling shows of all kinds, and possessed great power to draw crowds. 'Know thyself' was a common phrase associated with the exhibition of such models, suggesting their educational value. 30 July-18 October In the 19th century, despite the best efforts of body snatchers, the demand from medical schools for fresh cadavers far outstripped the supply. One solution to this gruesome problem came in the form of lifelike wax models. These models often took the form of alluring female figures that could be stripped and split into different sections. Other models were more macabre, showing the body ravaged by 'social diseases' such as venereal disease, tuberculosis and alcohol and drug addiction. With their capacity to titillate as well as educate, anatomical models became sought-after curiosities; displayed not only in dissecting rooms but also in sideshows and the curiosity cabinets of wealthy Victorian gentlemen. For a small admission fee, visitors seeking an unusual afternoon's entertainment could visit displays of these strange dolls in London, Paris, Brussels and Barcelona. This exhibition explores the forgotten history of the anatomical model, which with its unique combination of serious science and fairground horror provides a rare insight into 19th-century beliefs about the body. Kate Forde, the exhibition's curator, looks at a few of the key exhibits from 'Exquisite Bodies' and discusses one of the exhibition's aims: to show how 2D techniques of representing the body's layers move into 3D form, particularly with the flourishing of waxwork modeling. http://www.wellcomecollection.org/exhibitionsandevents/exhibitions/Exquisite-Bodies/Videos/WTDV026759.htm ~ nichopoulouzo Wellcome Collection 183 Euston Road London NW1 2BE, UK

She said: "A guard brought Philip a note from Manson, who said he wanted him to come over. He said he considers Philip the greatest producer who ever lived. It was creepy. Philip didn't respond." FORCED TO SLEEP NAKED, EAT OUT OF DOG BOWL: Rachelle Spector said he was forced to sleep naked on the floor for two nights, and to eat out of a bowl like a dog. DENIAL: Prison authorities denied the claims. PUBLICIST ON MANSON AND SPECTOR: Spector is contacted by mass-murderer Charles Manson! Spector, in the medical facility at California's Corcoran State Prison was shaken by a request from Manson for a musical collaboration. *Manson is also in Corcoran's maximum security facility. Spector's publicist told The BBC that the cult leader, who once collaborated on a song with The Beach Boys, contacted the producer through a note given to a prison guard. Spector is "alarmed and scared" that Charles Manson wants to work with him. The 69-year-old music producer, jailed for 15-years-to-life for killing actress Lana Clarkson, was horrified to receive a note from the murderer via a guard. PUBLICIST ON SPECTOR'S CONDITION AND MANSON: "PHIL SPECTOR is struggling to adapt to life in prison. He has been very alarmed and scared at the notion of Charles Manson contacting him for any reason. He is very worried that any association be made between himself and Charles Manson. Phil mentioned that he used to get phone calls from John Lennon and Tina Turner, and NOW IT'S Manson CALLING. It was kind of a dark humor comment. Spector was always a highly productive, creative person and now he's in a 5ft X 9ft cell with no windows and, maybe, a half-hour outside to walk around. It's essentially solitary confinement. He doesn't have computer access. He only recently got a little TV. It's a terrible existence for a millionaire record-producer who lived in mansions, and recently, a castle--a 35-room home. It's huge! Spector has no intention of responding to the message, and is frightened by the notion that he might be associated with Manson." PRISON ALLOWS JAM SESSION:: Phil Spector would be allowed to take part in 'jam sessions' with other inmates while he serves his life sentence for murder. HIGH-RISK SPECTOR MOVED TO SUBSTANCE ABUSE TREATMENT FACILITY: A wigless, unabridged, sans wig, Spector, is now housed with threat gangsters and sex offenders. Spector was moved to the Substance Abuse Treatment Facility in California State Prison after it was deemed he may be at risk of attack by other inmates. A prison spokesman said: 'The facility he is on now houses a bunch of inmates that have instruments and they all play together on the exercise yard.' Spector may be allowed to join in. SPECTOR ACCOMMODATIONS: He has a cell to himself and can make requests. His cell-wife has already complied with a TV, an iPod, and his Phil Spector mug. CORCORAN PRISON SPECS: The state prison in Corcoran houses 6,900 inmates, and has hosted many other entertainment figures/murderers in the past. *CHARLES MANSON COLLABORATION HISTORY: In the 1960s, Manson befriended the Beach Boys' Dennis Wilson and the group released a reworked version of his track "Cease To Exist" as "Never Learn Not To Love" in 1968. He has made several records while in prison. *OTHER FAMOUS PRISONERS WHO HAVE SERVED TIME AT CORCORAN: 'Iron Man' actor Robert Downey Jr.. SPECTOR'S FLIPPED WIG: Spector has been forced to ditch his trademark wigs, and posed for a less than flattering prison mugshot which showed him bald. The 'change of life' or 'MONOPAUSE' for Phil Spector came as devastating. ~ nichopoulouzo
Ale to the Chief: "The money shot was about 40 seconds of shaky pool video—captured from a sterile distance of 50 feet away—first of a butler carrying a silver tray of steins across a manicured lawn, then of the president and the vice president in breezy shirtsleeves, and the professor and the cop in formal dark suits, seated at a round white patio table, with the steins placed in front of them."--LG FOLLOW NICHOPOULOUZO @mrjyn http://www.twitter.com/mrjyn FREE BEER TOMORROW~ After all the hype for Thursdays White House Beer Summit—the cheesy countdown clocks, the silly panel discussions, CNNs arguably insane segment featuring a crazed schematic of the Rose Garden get-together—the actual event was letdown. Chris Matthews found it impossible not to compare the meeting to Bill Clintons historic White House ceremony between Yasser Arafat and Yitzhak Rabin. Even through beer goggles, the reality could never have matched the buildup—which was stoked earlier in the day by a presidential photo-op during which Barack Obama affected to be fascinated with the fascination about this evening. The president added: Its a clever term, but this is not a summit, guys, just three folks having a drink at the end of the day. Obama and Joe Biden grinned genially, leaned back, and popped nuts into their mouths. Harvard academic Henry Louis Skip Gates Jr. and Cambridge Police Sergeant James Crowley, on the far side of the table and a safe distance from each other, sat ramrod-straight and unsmiling. All that could be heard was the whirring of cameras and some muffled muttering, as the president sipped his beer, then downed a mouthful of nuts, then laughed at something, then wiped his hand on his trousers. At one point he and Gates clinked steins. Biden didnt seem interested in his nonalcoholic suds. Sgt. Crowley raised his beer to his lips and gulped, as Professor Gates lectured and gestured. Thank you! barked a White House aide, and then the pool was briskly ushered out of range. Im pretty unimpressed, Wendell, Fox complained to White House correspondent. Im pretty unimpressed, too, Goler said. Compared to its two rivals, Foxs coverage was succinct and predictably sour. Patronizing, condescending, insufferable, Fox said of Obama. Otherwise, Im sure hes a nice guy. I give President Obama a huge amount of credit for caring about Vice President Biden. And so the Teachable Moment ended—not with a bang but with a whimper of post-game analysis, on and on, into the night. A watchable moment that inevitably morphed into an unwatchable eternity. CNN owned this story—but not always in a good way. In its pre-game coverage presided earnestly in front of a multi-screen display showing live shots of various locations on the White House grounds—including a bunch of photographers doing nothing in the Briefing Room, an inert structure labeled Fence, and an otherwise unidentifiable wall labeled West Wing , complete with high-tech video pullouts, of how White House officials changed the venue of the Oktoberfest from the picnic table by the playground equipment on the South Lawn to the smaller table in the Rose Garden. FOX encouraged domestic Beerbohm to complain that the president, in choosing Bud Light as his brew, was actually celebrating a Belgian-owned company. NBC speculated that Biden would be praising Gates as clean and articulate. Matthews did a live opening segment replete with assessments of body language and facial expressions, and found it impossible not to compare the meeting to Bill Clintons historic White House ceremony between Yasser Arafat and Yitzhak Rabin. Sgt. Crowleys televised news conference at AFL-CIO headquarters: This supposedly media-innocent cop was thoughtful, relaxed, and even humorous before the cameras as he announced that he and the professor were planning to meet again. Do you know where youre meeting? a reporter asked. I do, Crowley answered with a tiny grin. Can you tell us? the reporter pressed. No! Crowley shot back—getting rewarded with a roar of laughter. Afterward CNN marveled: He sounded at points like a politician. Politicos agreed: NBC bureau chief chimed in: A star is born. But Matthews came up with a metaphor befitting the strange excess of the night: Weve got another Susan Boyle here.

On Tuesday, officers from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) swooped on the house of Jackson's personal doctor, Conrad Murray, who was with the star on the day of his death last month. Officers confiscated Murray's computer and cell phone from his Las Vegas residence as they investigate possible manslaughter charges against him. Now a second medic is facing the police probe. Los Angeles County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter searched the Beverly Hills medical offices of Dr. Lawrence Koplin on Wednesday, reportedly looking for records from the medic's nurse anesthetist David Fournier. Jackson's dermatologist, Dr. Arnold Klein, performed procedures on the star at Dr. Koplin's office with Fournier administering anesthesia, according to TMZ.com. On leaving Koplin's offices, Winter confirmed he is "still looking for medical records involving Michael Jackson."
