  • Khloe Kardashian – hope over experience

    No Comments
          Khloe Kardashian, youngest of the brash, publicity-seeking TV Reality family, is embarking on the happy-ever-after-staircase with plans for an autumn wedding to Tristan Thompson, a Canadian pro basketball player. She’s known him for six months which is a lifetime compared to her previous marriage to LA basketball player Lamar Odom, whom she hurtled up the aisle only a month after meeting. That ended in tears after four years, with him subsequently collapsing near death from a drug overdose in a Nevada brothel. Her mother Kris is evidently salivating over the prospect of a splashy TV extravaganza wedding feste to boost ratings. Prior to all this Khloe suffered severe brain damage in a car crash when she was …Keep reading »

    1 Comment
          Bad boy, singer, songwriter, dancer Chris Brown has been ordered to stay away from his ex-girlfriend, model Karrueche Tran after she claims he threatened to kill her.

  • Helen Bailey – dying for love

    No Comments
      Best-selling author of teenage novels Helen Bailey died in tragic and horrific circumstances, calculatingly killed by her fiancé. She had already suffered an shattering loss when her previous husband was drowned in Barbados; wrote her way out of her grief with a book called When Bad Things Happen in Good Bikinis; and thought she’d found happiness again with IT expert Ian Stewart, a widower with two children. He secretly doped her for months with sleeping pills; then smothered her and dumped her body in a cess pit under the house they had bought together. She was reported as missing in April last year with her pet daschund, whose body was found beside her, and for three months Stewart ciphoned …Keep reading »
  • Tabqa & Mosul dams – the carnage of war

    No Comments
        There is a warning from the UN this week of the risk of catastrophic flooding in Syria from the Tabqa dam, which has been deliberately sabotaged by ISIS and further damaged by US-led coalition air strikes. This follows grave warnings last year about a dam north of Mosul in Iraq that is on the verge of collapse. If it does, it could kill as many as a million and a half people. Temporary repairs have been done, but according to an environmental expert they are just going to delay the disaster. “It is just a matter of time. It will be worse than throwing a nuclear bomb on Iraq,” he said. “It is akin to putting a Band-Aid on a gunshot wound and pretending …Keep reading »
  • Trump administration – 8 horse chariot with no driver

    13 Comments
        Trump’s first month has been mercifully crisis-free. Of a global variety, I mean. Which given the internal chaos of his administration and appointments (and lack of them), and conflicting foreign policy utterances is a huge blessing. One commentator wrote that there is “an unprecedented degree of policy incoherence on virtually every major issue the country faces.” Trump chops and changes his opinions; and his senior cabinet lieutenants then go out into a concerned world to contradict what he’s said. The State Department has been kept out of the loop on key decisions like the Yemen raid, the travel ban, dropping a commitment to a two-state solution in Israel/Palestine. Tillerson hasn’t attended meetings with three foreign Prime Ministers and hasn’t …Keep reading »
  • A volcanic Oscars 2017 – with Emma Stone more than hopeful

    2 Comments
          The Oscars 2017 kicks off at 5.30pm, 26 February, Los Angeles, on an overly excitable day with a deeply buried, intense 8th house Uranus Mars in Aries opposition Jupiter square a grandstanding Pluto in the 5th, so bubbling with underground anger and the possibility of disruption. In addition Mars Uranus are trine Saturn which is edgy and bad-tempered. Plus a filmic and vague Neptune conjunct the Solar Eclipse in the 7th – so quite a day. Emma Stone, up for Best Actress for La La Land, is a determined Sun Pluto in Scorpio, with a lucky natal Jupiter in her 10th; and a showbiz/actress T Square of Mars in Aries opposition Venus Moon in Libra square Neptune …Keep reading »
  • Enda Kenny – a determined Taurus under pressure

    No Comments
        Enda Kenny, the Taoiseach or Prime Minister of Ireland is under pressure to resign as party leader because of his handling (or lack of it) of the treatment of a whistleblower into malpractices in the police force. The scandal has already led to the resignation of the Police Commissioner in 2014 and the Justice Minister. Kenny, 24 April 1951, is a tough-minded, stubborn Sun Mercury Mars in Taurus; with Mars square Pluto, so he’ll not be budged quickly. He does look devastated with tr Pluto square his Mars/Saturn midpoint which is a catastrophic setback this month; plus a jolting Solar Arc Sun conjunct his Uranus this year. But he’s also got decidedly bullish transits as well of tr …Keep reading »
