Sara Jean Underwood

Date of Birth
26 March 1984, Scappoose, Oregon, USA

5' 3" (1.60 m)

Cute, slim, and sunny blonde sprite Sara Jean Underwood was born on March 26, 1984 in Portland, Oregon. Sara was on the volleyball team in junior high school. She graduated from Scappoose High School in Scappoose, Oregon in 2002.

Her first job was assisting in the sales of heavy construction equipment. Underwood worked as a waitress at Hooters in Beaverton, Oregon. She attended Oregon State University as a major in Business Marketing. Sara first appeared in "Playboy" in the pictorial "The Girls of the Pac 10" in the October, 2005 issue (she also graced the cover of this same issue).

Underwood was the Playmate of the Month in the July, 2006 issue of the famous men's magazine. She was named Playmate of the Year in 2007. Sara has been featured in many "Playboy" videos. Underwood not only has appeared as herself in the comedy films "The House Bunny" and "Miss March," but also on episodes of such reality TV series as "Kendra," "The Girls Next Door," and "Bridget's Sexiest Beaches." Moreover, Sara has worked on television as a continuity announcer for the Blackbelt TV cable network and co-hosted five episodes of G4's "Attack of the Show."

Underwood discovered Ida Ljungqvist while shopping on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, California; Ljungqvist was the Playmate of the Month in the March, 2008 issue of "Playboy" and was named Playmate of the Year in 2009. Sara has small parts in the films "Epic Movie" and "Two Million Stupid Women." She has more substantial roles in the horror pictures "The Telling" and "Zellwood." Underwood continues to model for "Playboy."

Despite extensive stress-testing, Diablo 3's global launch was bound hit a few snags. And sure enough, as the 23.01 deadline passed and BattleNet servers opened worldwide, literally thousands of gamers started a mad dash to install the game, promptly crashing servers … as it did again the following day.

It may have been a delay rather than a disaster – and it certainly didn't stop me racing through the first act before breakfast – but it did reflect many people's top pre-launch concern: Diablo 3's need to maintain a constant internet connection. Blizzard insists this is to ensure that characters can only be levelled up in one way to prevent fraud as well as retain security and control.

Nevertheless, having already lost some progress and booty between checkpoints myself, it's clear this latest multiplayer intrusion will rankle some single players deeply – at least until Battlenet returns to its usual, stable self. Of course, there are some advantages to having your character ID, stats and items stored online, but more about that in a moment.

In terms of gameplay, first glance reveals everything you would expect from a Diablo sequel: five playable character classes, roughly divided between close-range brawlers like the Barbarian and Monk and rangier characters like The Wizard and Demon Hunter. And, for sheer strangeness, there's the Witch Doctor – whose Demon Dogs skill fast became my defence of choice. For the first time, I was also able to make him a her, even though gender has no bearing on anything but appearance and voice-over.

Once in the game, it's clear that the new 3D engine has been put to work on rendering a level of detail we haven't seen in the series before. Superb lighting effects make even Act 1's formulaic dungeons seem more atmospheric, but once you reach Act 2's Caldeum and beyond, more spectacular locations and draw distances emerge. Enemies may have a tendency to swarm mindlessly towards you, but they come in large numbers and reasonable variety.

Not every improvement pays off, however; there's far too little destructible scenery and context-sensitive traps – such as falling chandeliers or rolling logs – sound like a great idea on paper but require such careful lining up of enemies you won't be troubling with them after the first few attempts.

There's improvement as well as innovation, particularly with the UI. With a permanent Portal spell to take you back to nearby towns and a much smarter way of choosing and comparing items, you can now focus on the important task of killing things.

However, in the 12 years since Diablo 2, RPG combat has moved on in leaps and bounds and D3 seems determined to stick to its tried and tested brawling system. Certainly there's a plethora of pyrotechnic skills for each character, most of which can be customised with up to five Runes each, opening up some fascinating alternative strategies for each class. But the way this is organised onscreen is confusing, with skills taking precedence over weapons by default and no clear overview of the powers you already have, let alone aspire to.

There's also a tedious "cooling down" period once a rune is activated and even longer after taking a Health potion. At least slain enemies now drop orbs that can be collected by running over them but this tends to give you abundant health at precisely the moment you don't need it (ie, once the danger has been eliminated).

Combat itself is fast, furious and varied, with early standout attacks such as the Monk's Exploding Palm or the Barbarian's Wrath of the Bezerker even more impressive once fully runed up. However, compared to the fluidity of, say, Kingdoms of Amular, D3 battles still feel disjointed and unnecessarily frenetic – particularly when taking on the exceptionally mobile Bosses.

Combat also remains crippling on the fingers thanks to mapping moves and primary attacks to the same mouse button which too often results in charging enemies you should have tackled at distance. Meanwhile, when you have NPC allies, they offer little in the way of real assistance until fully upgraded – by which time your enemies have taken a quantum leap in hardness themselves.

And what of the adventure? Well, it's set around 20 years after D2 and once again Sanctuary is under attack from hellish forces. It's a subtle introduction, avoiding lengthy cut-scenes except at the start of each of the game's four acts in favour of dropping pieces of "lore" that play out while you continue adventuring. Add to this some top quality voice acting and an stirring soundtrack and D3 works fine as an unfolding story without winning any prizes for original fiction. And although most of the side quests are formulaic search/fight type affairs, there are now many more of them – which means more loot.

However, die-hard fans know that Diablo has never been about finishing the adventure, it's about levelling up your characters and discovering the most valuable items.

D2 players were only able to trade between team members, but Blizzard has annexed all this into D3's own, secure but rather bleak Auction House. Now anyone can trade items for game credits or (among other players in your region) real cash with early visits revealing weapons and armour far in advance of anything NPC traders at my level in the game were offering.

It remains to be seen how this will affect things in the long run, or how long it will take fraudsters, spammers and cheats to find some way to spoil the party. However, it's already clear that capitalism has arrived in Sanctuary – perhaps hinting at another motivation for D3's need to be always online.

But there are other advantages too, most notably the way co-op play has now been fully integrated. This means you can instantly access a random four-player public game from the main menu, or start playing alone and then invite friends or the wider public to join in.

Either way, the game registers which enemies you kill so that you don't have to fight off thieving teammates and all experience is saved to your player profile. Co-op D3 may feature the same single-player levels, but it's only here where you get to appreciate how months of beta testing have paid off.

Having invested time and effort in levelling up a character, co-op is the best way to see the others in action and it's well worth the experience. Playing with a Monk/Witch Doctor combo is nothing like taking it on as a Barbarian/Wizard, and when it comes to customising your characters for co-op you need to consider how particular skill/rune combos serve the team rather than just yourself.

The ultimate test of this character and stat-balancing act is Inferno – a rock hard difficulty level unlocked upon your character reaching level 60 at the hardest difficulty setting. With each Act then increasing in difficulty, adjusted to how many players are taking part, it's D3's ultimate challenge and will surely secure the game's biggest bragging rights for the team that first cracks it. Needless to say, I'm still many levels (and a lot of combat experience) short of that, but it's certainly something to aim for.

So the key question remains, was Diablo 3 worth the 12-year wait? That depends on how you play it – for single players, it's an entertaining and gorgeous-looking dungeon hack but it's a bit short, extremely linear and hardly pushing any boundaries. Playing online (and Blizzard isn't really giving us a choice) makes it a better balanced and more compelling challenge, with all the potential to be the kind of lifestyle substitute that Diablo's legion of hunter-gatherer fans should relish.

With global demand still in a feeding frenzy and PvP levels under development, let's hope the servers can cope.

Torika Watters, Controversial

Another beauty pageant controversy.

Not long after Jenna Talackova was booted from the Miss Universe Canada contest due to her transgender status, Torika Watters has lost her title of Miss Fiji.

The 16-year old was set to represent her tiny nation in the upcoming Miss World pageant, except for the detail that representatives must be at least 17 years old. But that's not the only scandal following around this young beauty.

Immediately upon winning the crown last month, Watters faced mounting criticism over her appearance, specifically that she lacked "buiniga," the local word to describe the naturally-frizzy Fijian hairstyle.

A pageant spokeswoman told ABC News in Australia that organizers have received "nothing but negative criticism and remarks from our own people" about the selection of Torika.

"While we appreciate a healthy discussion and feedback on our page, violent or racist comments will not be tolerated," the Miss Fiji spokeswoman said.

Watters, for her part, says she's "proud of my identity as a Fijian" and added, via Facebook:

"I had no intentions of doing anything sneaky or wrong and like the other contestants entered the competition for what I believed to be the right reasons - to be an Ambassador for Fiji and raise money for charitable causes."

She will be replaced by 24-year-old runner-up Koini Vakaloloma.

Donna Summer, Legendary disco singer dead at 63

THE POP MUSIC WORLD was stunned Thursday by the death of Donna Summer, the original “Disco Queen” who ruled the late 1970s and proved over the next three decades that she and her music were stars, not fads.

She was 63 and died after a secret battle with cancer, her publicist said. She was reportedly diagnosed with lung cancer 10 months ago but had made no public acknowledgment.

“It was a big surprise,”said John (Jellybean) Benitez, the famed deejay, producer and remixer who had worked with Summer and is now executive producer of Sirius XM’s Studio 54 Radio.

Donna Summer
Date of Birth
31 December 1948, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Date of Death
17 May 2012, Florida, USA (lung cancer)

Birth Name
LaDonna Adrian Gaines

Queen of Disco

5' 7" (1.70 m)

Donna Summer was the Queen of Disco in the 1970s with a pop/dance/rock sound that was a hybrid of American soul and European synthesizer based music. Summer's musical career was launched on stage in Munich, Germany, in productions of Hair and Porgy & Bess. In Germany, she hooked up with producers, Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte, and delivered the orgasmic "Love to Love You Baby" which brought her worldwide fame. Summer was the first female artist to garner back-to-back multi-platinum double albums and the first female artist to incorporate synthesizers as well as the first artist to create an extended play song. Musically, she diversified into pop and rock, while career-wise, she appeared in the disco dud, Thank God It's Friday (1978), for which the song, "Last Dance" won an Academy Award for Best Song, as well as numerous American TV music specials.

Her career continued into the 1980s with the release of the album "The Wanderer", a diverse fusion of rock and dance. Soon afterward, Summer announced that she was a born-again Christian. She was then accused of making anti-gay comments in relation to the AIDS epidemic. Although Summer later claimed that she had been misquoted, thousands of her records were returned to her record companies by angered fans and there was a worldwide boycott of her music in dance clubs. Summer returned to the charts in in the late 80s and early 90s with various dance hits. She recently ended her longtime association with Polygram and moved to Nashville to work on country music and to pursue her other passion, painting. In 1998, she won a Grammy for Best Dance Single and has plans to launch a Broadway musical, "Ordinary Girl", based on her life.

Megan Fox Tattoo Removed on Cover Magazine

One of Fox's back tattoos is a little too much for the cover of French Grazia.

In the photo, Fox is pressed up against a wall and has her head turned toward the camera so we see her face and back. One of her tattoos was left visible: "We will all laugh at the gilded butterflies," which is a quote from Shakespeare's "King Lear." The tattoo that was Photoshopped off Fox's back is a quote from German philosopher/existentialist Friedrich Nietzsche: "And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."

Interestingly enough, the discerning editors at Grazia left the "Transformers" actress' tattoo visible within the pages of the cover story inside the magazine, but did away with it on the cover. Porquois? Nous ne savons pas! (Why? We don't know!)

Fox has never been shy about her ink. In fact, she once revealed to MTV News that the tattoo in question was partially inspired by actor Mickey Rourke, with whom she worked on the movie "Passion Play."

"I actually got a tattoo that is sort of in honor of him," she told us at the time. "It's on my ribs. I don't know if it's been photographed yet, but it'll come out eventually, I'm sure. I just love him very much and think he's very special."

Megan Fox and Her "Marilyn Monroe Tattoo"

Megan Fox say of her tattoo on the right hand (Marilyn Monroe Tattoo)

When she was 19-years-old, the actress began getting tattoos as a form of self expression. "Everyone warned me and told me, 'There's gonna be a day when you don't love this stuff anymore. You're gonna grow up,'" Fox said on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno Monday.

"I was stubborn and thought that I was going to love it forever, or that it would be like a book of my life, all the things that I loved when i was young. It's not that way at all."

Fox, who said she has "eight or nine" tattoos, is currently in the process of removing the portrait of Marilyn Monroe on her right forearm. "It hurts really bad. It's really painful. Getting them is not that bad, obviously, because I have so many."

The Friends With Kids star, 25, said that when the laser hit her skin, "it sort of exploded and looked like little kernels of popcorn popping up. It's traumatic and it's incredibly painful. They can't numb it enough to make the pain go away."

Kim Kardashian "KW" earrings

They've yet to make a public statement to confirm they are in a relationship.
Kim was seen wearing a pair of gold and diamond studded earrings - that spell out the initials of her new rapper beau.

The 31-year-old who is always heavily followed by photographers wore her hair swept up to reveal the earrings with Kanye's 'K W' initials.
On Saturday night West took his reality star girlfriend to one of New York City's hottest restaurants.

The lovebirds caused a major stir as they emerged from Spice Market, a trendy Asian Fusion spot in the city's Meatpacking District.
The couple, now known as 'Kimye' to their fans, was spotted arriving at the restaurant and later leaving with several members of the Kardashian clan
The lovebirds laughed and smiled as a crush of cameras and fans trailed them around the city.
And no wonder they're smiling as it was revealed Kim introduced her new man to her family on the very same day, a sure sign things are getting serious.

Megan Fox Pregnant

Is Megan Fox really pregnant?

In March, RadarOnline first reported the 25-year-old actress was expecting her first child with husband Brian Austin Green, and now E! News is reporting a source has confirmed the actress is indeed pregnant.

Fox is already a stepmother to Green's son 10-year-old Kassius, and she's often spoken of her desire to start a family.

"I've always wanted kids. It's just about the timing being right," Fox told The Hollywood Reporter. "I have a number in my mind of what amount of money I want in the bank so that I can protect that child's future. And really protect it, so that kid never struggles. Once I feel safe with that then I'll have them."

The actress' most recent role was a young dancer who has no desire to have children in "Friends With Kids," which has meant repeated questions about Fox's own future as a parent. She most recently told Cosmopolitan magazine, "I want at least two, probably three [kids]. I've always been maternal."

Last month, a source close to the couple told RadarOnline, "They just found out and are incredibly excited. It's still early, so they are only telling close friends and family members.

Neither Fox nor Green had commented to confirm or deny initial reports. Calls to Fox's rep had not been returned at the time of publication.

Tips and Tricks for Beautiful, Low Maintenance Hair

Beautiful hair for busy women
Low-maintenance hair starts with the right cut—and a few style shortcuts that'll save you time, money, and morning stress.

There are a few things to consider when looking for a cut that grows out beautifully and doesn't need to be fussed over. Here, the details.

Last longer between salon visits
There are a few things to consider when looking for a cut that grows out beautifully and doesn't need to be fussed over.

Don't go too short
Although you might think super short hair is low maintenance, the opposite is usually true. “Short cuts require frequent trims and more styling than shoulder length or longer ones,” says Caroline Anderson, director of global marketing for Redken. “Plus, short hair can't be put into a twist or ponytail when you're short on time.”

Say no to lots of layers
"Heavy, choppy layers require more regular cuts, and it's often hard to make them look good at home without a lot of effort,” says Sarah Potempa, a celebrity stylist for Aussie. A blunt cut with long layers only in the front requires way less maintenance, and is universally flattering.

Prevent split ends
To extend your time between cuts, protect your ends, since splits and breakage—which leave the bottom portion of your hair frayed and thinner—are often what send you running to your stylist.

"Shampoo less often, condition your ends, and apply a heat protector before blow-drying,” says Michael Dueñas, celebrity stylist and founder of Hair Room Service. Also, treat hair to a weekly deep conditioner to replenish moisture and seal the cuticles, meaning fewer split ends.

Conceal roots for weeks
Even when roots become obvious, you don't need to go for a full-on dye job. "Hiding roots at home is easier then ever," stylist Michael Duenas says.

Cover a bit of regrowth
If your roots are beginning to show and you want to mask them for a night out, try a spray. In a hurry and see a few stray grays popping out at you? Mascara or dark eye shadow can also cover them up, says Erica Campbell, a colorist at diPietro Todd Salon in San Francisco.

Do a DIY root touch-up that buys you a month
To make more noticeable roots disappear for up to four weeks, try an at-home root kit. Apply it to your part and hairline using the comb applicator, which makes the application process way more manageable. It's that simple!

Get highlights that last for months
You can get sun-kissed streaks without a whole lot of upkeep. Check out these strategies for highlights that look great as they grow out.

Stick within two shades of your natural color
"For most of your highlights go just one shade lighter than your hair color," says colorist Erica Campbell. "Then add a few brighter ones around your face." Your color will look more natural, plus you'll be able to go long before redoing it.

Don't go for a full head of highlights every time
Alternate regular highlighting appointments with "mini" face=framing highlights, which save money and extend the time between your regular appointments. "It keeps your color looking fresh," says Campbell.

Save blow-dry time
Follow these pointers to speed-up your styling

Focus on the sections you can see
To swiftly style a blunt cut with long layers, start by blow-drying using your hands instead of a brush. When hair is still slightly damp, apply a few drops of shine serum and finish drying while running a brush over just the outer sections—don't waste time on the sections underneath, Dueñas says.

If you're curly, skip the dryer
You're in luck: The less you do, the better curly hair looks. "Apply a frizz-fighting cream, then twist individual curls, starting from the bottom, while you air-dry," says Laura Boton, owner of Chicago's Sine Qua Non Salon. Once you've shaped the curls, hands off.

Style while you sleep
It's easy: Wash hair before bed, then towel-dry and smooth in a light mousse or gel. Roll hair into two buns (one on either side of your head) and secure with elastics. "You'll wake up to amazing, soft waves," says Potempa. Boton also recommends smoothing a gel into damp hair and then braiding it into big braids for loose waves, small braids for tighter ones.

How to tell you're having a migraine (part #3)

Next Migrain sign are:

Activity triggers or worsens pain
Routine activities such as walking or climbing stairs can make migraine pain worse.

Some migraines are induced by exercise (running, weight-lifting) or exertion (sexual activity). People with exertion-induced headaches require a thorough workup to rule out underlying causes, such as a brain aneurysm.

Trouble speaking
Can't get the words out? Speech difficulties can be another sign that a migraine is on its way.

"A lot of people with migraines will feel like they're blithering," Dr. Messina says. "It's a common description by patients." If you are experiencing speech problems for the first time, contact a doctor to make sure the problems are not related to a more serious issue, such as a stroke.

Weakness on one side of the body
When an arm goes limp, it can be a sign of a migraine.

Some people experience muscle weakness on one side of the body before a migraine attack. This can also be a sign of a stroke, however, so consult a doctor to rule out any other causes.

Vertigo or double vision
One type of migraine, called a basilar-type migraine, can cause dizziness, double vision, or loss of vision.

Some people with migraines may experience balance problems too. In a recent study, Dr. Calhoun and colleagues found a link between migraine intensity and dizziness or vertigo. The stronger the migraine, the more likely patients were to have these complaints.

"Our best conclusion is that it's actually part of migraines," she says. "It's a migraine symptom."

Headache hangover
After the migraine passes, a person may feel like her body has been pummeled.

In a recent study, researchers interviewed migraine patients and found that they commonly experienced symptoms such as fatigue, trouble concentrating, weakness, dizziness, lightheadedness, and loss of energy during the post-migraine period.

"It can be very fatiguing," Dr. Messina says.

How to tell you're having a migraine (part #2)

Next sign that person get migrain are:

Before a migraine attack occurs, some people crave certain foods.
"A common craving is chocolate," Dr. Messina says.

Throbbing pain on one or both sides of the head
Pulsating pain is a classic sign of migraines. The throbbing is often felt on one side of the head.

In an online survey of patients with migraines, the National Headache Foundation found that 50% "always" have throbbing on one side, while 34% say they "frequently" have this symptom.

Eye pain
Migraine pain often burrows behind the eye.

People will blame it on eye strain and many will get their eyes checked, but that won't make their headaches any better, Dr. Messina says.

Neck pain
"A lot of people will say, 'My neck gets stiff and then I get a headache.' Well, it's probably the early stage of the migraine," Dr. Messina says. "Or after a migraine they'll get that neck symptom or they'll have throbbing pain at the back of their neck."

In an online survey, the National Headache Foundation found 38% of migraine patients "always" have neck pain and 31% "frequently" have neck pain during migraine headaches. (The Foundation receives support from GlaxoSmithKline, maker of migraine medicine.)

Frequent urination
If you have to go a lot, it can mean a migraine is coming.

It's one of the many symptoms people experience just before a migraine. These warning signs, also known as the prodome phase of a migraine, can arrive as little as an hour or as much as two days before the start of headache pain.

Yawning a lot is another tip-off that a migraine is about to strike.
Unlike regular "I'm tired" yawning, it may be excessive and occur every few minutes.
In one 2006 study in the journal Cephalalgia, about 36% of migraine patients reported yawning was one of the signs of an impending migraine.

Numbness or tingling
Some people with migraines have sensory aura.
They may have a temporary lack of sensation or a pins-and-needles feeling, typically on one side of the body, moving from the fingertips through the arm and across the face.

Nausea or vomiting
According to data from the American Migraine Study II, a mail survey of more than 3,700 people with migraines, 73% experience nausea and 29% have vomiting. (The study was funded by a drug manufacturer.)

A recent analysis of the National Headache Foundation's American Migraine Prevalence and Prevention study found people with frequent migraine-related nausea have more severe pain and more trouble getting relief from medication than migraine sufferers with little or no nausea.

Light, noise, or smells trigger or worsen pain
In the throes of a migraine attack, the migraine sufferer tends to seek refuge in a dark, quiet place. Bright lights and loud noises can trigger a migraine or intensify the pain. The same is true of certain odors.

"Once you've already got a migraine, smells can seem more intense and make it worse," Dr. Calhoun says. "But a smell can also trigger a migraine in someone who didn't have one before [he or she] walked past the perfume counter."

How to tell you're having a migraine (part #1)

migraine is type of headache that may occur with symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, or sensitivity to light. In many people, a throbbing pain is felt only on one side of the head. Warning symptoms when get migraine, called an aura, before the actual headache begins. An aura is a group of symptoms, including vision disturbances, that are a warning sign that a bad headache is coming.

Nearly 30 million people in the United States have migraines, and three times as many women as men have them.

Migraines are pulsating headaches, often on one side of the head. Physical activity may intensify the pain, but symptoms can vary from person to person and from one attack to the next.

"In patients who have migraines, we're going to treat all of their headaches as potential migraines," says Anne Calhoun, MD, partner and cofounder of the Carolina Headache Institute, in Chapel Hill, N.C.

Some people with a migraine experience aura.

The most common auras are visual, such as flickering lights, spots, or lines. "You may see a little jagged line...that will develop some cross hatches, and it might sort of move in a curved direction," Dr. Calhoun says.

Auras typically last between five minutes and an hour, with a 60-minute "skip phase" before the headache pain sets in, she says.

Some patients have auras without a migraine-type headache or any headache at all.

Depression, irritability, or excitement
Mood changes can be a sign of migraines.

"Some patients will feel very depressed or suddenly down for no reason," Dr. Calhoun says. "Others will feel very high." Dutch researchers recently reported a possible genetic link between depression and migraines, especially migraines with aura.

Data presented at the American Academy of Neurology 2010 annual meeting suggests that moderate or severe depression increases the risk of episodic migraines becoming chronic.

Lack of restful sleep
Waking up tired or having trouble falling asleep are common problems in people with migraines.

Studies have shown an association between lack of restorative sleep and the frequency and intensity of migraines.

When migraines strike, it's tough to get a good night's sleep. "A lot of people will have insomnia as a result of their migraine," says Edmund Messina, MD, medical director of the Michigan Headache Clinic, in East Lansing. This inability to sleep can be the start of a vicious cycle, as research suggests that lack of sleep can also trigger migraines.

Stuffy nose or watery eyes
Some people with migraines have sinus symptoms, such as stuffy nose, clear nasal drainage, droopy eyelids, or tearing, Dr. Messina says.

One large study found that, among people who complained of sinus headaches, nearly 90% were having migraines. (The study was funded by GlaxoSmithKline, which makes migraine medicine.)
