Elizabeth Smart to Help Kids

Elizabeth Smart to Help Kids - Elizabeth Smart, who was kidnapped from her Utah home at age 14 in 2002 and held captive for nine months by a man who repeatedly raped her, has started a foundation to teach kids how to fight back in the case of an abduction. Now a 24-year-old Brigham Young University senior studying harp, Smart said her Resist Aggression Defensively “gives children choices and options,” she said. “I can’t go back and change what happened to me, but I would like to think that if someone tried to kidnap me now, I would know enough to know I can fight back. I can yell,” she said. The program also teaches how kids can try to talk their way out of situations. Smart said her kidnapping “taught me that just because something bad happens, it doesn’t mean our life is over. Elizabeth Smart to Help Kids

Lindsay Lohan to Feature on Ellen

Lindsay Lohan to Feature on Ellen - Despite reports, Lindsay Lohan won't be appearing on the U.K. version of "Celebrity Big Brother." But she will grace America's TV screens on Dec. 15 when she pays a visit to "The Ellen Degeneres Show." It's been a few years since Lohan has appeared on the daytime talk show. The troubled actress has been keeping a low profile when it comes to television due to her recent legal troubles that range from court dates and probation to a brief jail stint. Lohan will soon show off a little bit more of herself in a new Playboy spread, which hits newsstands next month. "The pictorial is absolutely fantastic and very tasteful, and will be accompanied by an interview that will let readers see another side of Lindsay," Lohan's rep told E! News.

Billy Bob Daughter

Billy Bob Daughter - The estranged daughter of actor Billy Bob Thornton has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for the 2008 death of a child in her care.

Amanda Brumfield, 32, was convicted of manslaughter earlier this year.

Authorities say Brumfield killed her best friend's daughter during an overnight stay in October 2008.

Brumfield says 1-year-old Olivia Madison Garcia was trying to climb out of a playpen and hit her head. The defense suggested the fall may have aggravated a previous injury, causing her death.

Prosecutors say it's impossible that a fall from that height caused a three-and-a-half inch (9-centimeter) fracture on the back of the girl's skull and the bleeding and swelling found in her brain.

Brumfield's father, Billy Bob Thornton, is best known for the movie "Slingblade" and his marriage to Angelina Jolie.

Paranormal Activity 2

Paranormal Activity 2 - For those who enjoyed the first movie, "Paranormal Activity 2" is worth seeing.

People who didn't see the initial horror flick can just as well miss this one, too.
"Paranormal Activity 2" explains some of the events of the first movie, acting as both a prequel and a sequel.

The film follows Katie's sister Kristi (Sprague Grayden) as she and her family experience the presence of a demon in their house. At first, the almost quiet squeaks and clashes heard at night are too minimal to create any real terror.

As the movie progresses, the sounds get louder and the house becomes a battle zone between the family and the demon.

Then again, the director does not let the viewers see from the demon's point of view, so it should be assumed that the demon has a way of "playing with its food" before causing bloodshed. If viewers have seen the first movie, they know what will happen to Katie.
But, there were still some really great parts of the movie that will make everyone jump in their seats.
