Named after his stepfather, Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Sr. (December 10, 1948 -- November 9, 1985, Los Angeles), Calvin Broadus was born October 20, 1971 at the Los Altos Hospital in Long Beach, California, the second of three sons of Beverly Broadus (née Tate; born April 27, 1951, McComb, Mississippi). His father, Vernall Varnado (born December 13, 1949, Magnolia, Mississippi), was a Vietnam veteran, singer, and mail carrier who was said to be frequently absent from his life. Broadus' parents nicknamed him "Snoopy" as a child because of his appearance, but usually addressed him as Calvin at home. His mother and stepfather divorced in 1975. At an early age, Broadus began singing in Golgotha Trinity Baptist Church and playing piano; when he was in sixth grade, he began rapping. He attended Long Beach Polytechnic High School, and was convicted for cocaine trafficking, serving six months at the Wayside County Jail.
As a teenager, Snoop Dogg frequently ran into trouble with the law. Snoop Dogg was a member of the Rollin' 20 Crips gang in the Eastside of Long Beach. although he stated in 1993 that he never joined a gang. Shortly after graduating from high school, he was arrested for possession of cocaine. Snoop Dogg's conviction caused him to be frequently in and out of prison for the first three years after he graduated from high school. Snoop, along with his cousins Nate Dogg and Lil' ½ Dead and friend Warren G, recorded home made tapes as a group called 213, named after the Long Beach area code at the time. One of his early solo freestyles over En Vogue's "Hold On" had made it to a mixtape which was heard by influential producer Dr. Dre, who phoned to invite him to an audition. Former N.W.A member The D.O.C. taught him how to structure his lyrics and separate the thematics into verses, hooks and chorus.
1992--93: Career beginnings and Doggystyle
When he began recording, Broadus took the stage name Snoop Doggy Dogg. Dr. Dre began working with Snoop Dogg, first on the theme song of the 1992 film Deep Cover, and then on Dr. Dre's debut solo album The Chronic with the other members of his former starting group, Tha Dogg Pound. The huge success of Snoop Dogg's debut Doggystyle was partially because of this intense exposure.
To fuel the ascendance of West Coast G-funk hip hop, the singles "Who Am I (What's My Name)?" and "Gin and Juice" reached the top ten most-played songs in the United States, and the album stayed on the Billboard charts for several months. Gangsta rap became the center of arguments for censorship and labeling, with Snoop Dogg often used as an example of violent and misogynistic musicians. Doggystyle, much like The Chronic, featured a host of rappers signed to or affiliated with the Death Row label including Daz Dillinger, Kurupt, Nate Dogg and others. Rolling Stone music critic Touré asserted that Snoop had a relatively soft vocal delivery compared to other rappers: "Snoop's vocal style is part of what distinguishes him: where many rappers scream, figuratively and literally, he speaks softly."
A short film about Snoop Dogg's murder trial called Murder Was The Case, was released in 1994, along with an accompanying soundtrack. On July 6, 1995, Doggy Style Records, Inc., a record label founded by Snoop Dogg, was registered with the California Secretary of State as business entity number C1923139.
1996--97: Tha Doggfather
After Snoop Dogg was acquitted of murder charges on February 20, 1996, he and the mother of his son and their kennel of 20 pit bulls moved into a 5,000-square-foot (460 m2) home in the hills of Claremont, California and by August 1996 Doggy Style Records, a subsidiary of Death Row Records, signed The Gap Band's Charlie Wilson as one of the record label's first artists.
However, by the time Snoop Dogg's second album, Tha Doggfather, was released in November 1996, the price of living (or sometimes just imitating) the gangsta life had become very evident. Among the many notable hip hop industry deaths and convictions were the death of Snoop Dogg's friend and labelmate 2Pac and the racketeering indictment of Death Row co-founder Suge Knight. Dr. Dre had left Death Row earlier in 1996 because of a contract dispute, so Snoop Dogg co-produced Tha Doggfather with Daz Dillinger and DJ Pooh.

Tomb Raider was the first major Hollywood film to shoot in Cambodia since Peter O'Toole starred in Lord Jim in 1964. The Tomb Raider crew were all set to travel to China to film the Terracotta Army coming to life, when the sequence was pulled at the last minute, as it had already been featured in a Chinese movie. Cambodia was next on the list and Hanuman Films was chosen for scouting at Angkor. Following a successful scout with a full technical crew, Paramount British Pictures appointed Hanuman Films as their local servicing partner in the Kingdom of Cambodia.
Kulikar Sotho worked as Local Liason Manager, essentially Line Producer, arranging all filming permissions, script approval, temporary import/re-export of equipment, visas, accommodation, transport and catering for the production. Nick Ray worked as Location Manager on the film, selecting locations for the shoot, building a photographic inventory of the temples used in shooting, approving all sets or alterations to be made at each site and working with local authorities every step of the way to ensure this first sensitive shoot at Angkor passed without incident.
Hanuman Films also took responsibility for recruitment of extras, recruitment of site security, recruitment of humpers and labourers and recruitment of a large team of interpreters (some turned out to be more like interrupters, but most acquitted themselves well!).
Tomb Raider premiered on June 15th 2001 at Mann's Theatre in Los Angeles. Nick and Kulikar were both invited to the premiere and stayed with Producer Lloyd Levin for a long weekend of partying.

"Lanka" It is a story of a woman who recounts her story of being confined to live as an unwed wife of an influential gangster.
Dr. Anju Khanna is admonished by hospital administration when she gets upset with a male for assaulting his wife. She then recounts her very own story of being forcibly confined by Bijnor-based Jaswant Sisodiya, an influential gangster, who loves her insanely but refuses to marry her. Her as well as doctor father's attempts to seek justice are all in vain. Then Jaswant's protégé, known only as Rajvir's son, re-enters Jaswant's life. He is very loyal and dedicated to the latter, and does everything he is told without question. When attacked by a group who oppose Jaswant, he kills seven men, is arrested, tried in Court, and acquitted. He then saves Jaswant's life from an assassin allegedly hired by S.P. Bhupen Singh, and then ensures the latter's demise. Then Jaswant's life faces more challenges when the Criminal Investigation Department from Lucknow launches an inquiry following a complaint from Anju and her dad. It is this move that will compel Jaswant to force Dr. Khanna to withdraw this complaint by making it clear that if he cannot have Anju for himself then he will ensure that she becomes 'public property' - and he will arrange her to be sold to a brothel - and then transported to Dubai.

Before he was a brilliant defense attorney, Phoenix Wright himself stood trial.. in the fourth grade. Accused of stealing a fellow classmate, Miles Edgeworth's lunch money the entire class had turned on Wright. Despite being fingered as the culprit, Miles Edgeworth and Larry Butz came to Wright's defense, citing that the jury could not produce definitive evidence linking him to the crime, acquitting him of all charges. From that day forward, the three became best friends.
Wright went on to study art and law at Ivy University while Miles took after his father and became an esteemed prosecutor. In his first four years, Miles recorded a perfect win record, something that was achieved only through the ruthless pursuit of a guilty verdict. Miles was virtually unrecognizable to Wright and he knew a face-off between the two was inevitable.
Wright began to date Dahlia Hawthorne, who later testified against Wright in the murder of her ex-boyfriend, Doug Swallow. Previous to his death, Doug tried to warn Wright of Dahlia's murderous intent but then mysteriously died when the two got into a scuffle. Wright was successfully defended by rookie attorney Mia Fey and the murder was pinned on Dahlia, the true culprit. Mia's stalwart defense inspired Wright to pursue law under the tutelage of Mia and her firm. Fey & Co. Law Offices, thus beginning Phoenix Wright's illustrious career as an Ace Attorney.

Here is some info for Michael Jackson:
Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 June 25, 2009), often dubbed the "King of Pop," was an American recording artist, widely regarded as one of the greatest entertainers of modern times. With his trademark black fedora and single, sequinned glove, his unique contributions to music and dance, along with a highly publicized personal life, made him a central part of popular culture around the world for four decades.
One of the few artists to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, his achievements included multiple Guinness World Records—including the "Most Successful Entertainer of All Time"—13 Grammy Awards, 13 number one singles, and the sale of over 750 million records. He was also a notable philanthropist, donating millions of dollars to the 39 charities he supported, and raising more through his own Heal the World Foundation.
The seventh child of the Jackson family, he made his debut in 1968 as a member of The Jackson 5, beginning a solo career in 1971. His 1982 album Thriller remains the best-selling album of all time, with four others—Off the Wall (1979), Bad (1987), Dangerous (1991), and HIStory (1995)—among the best selling. He popularized several physically complicated dance moves, such as the robot and the moonwalk, now iconic. He is widely credited with having transformed the music video from a promotional tool into an art form, with videos such as Thriller, "Beat It" and "Billie Jean" making him the first African American to amass a strong crossover following on MTV, and others, such as "Black or White" and "Scream", ensuring his popularity well into the 1990s.
Jackson's personal life generated significant controversy. His changing appearance was noticed from the early 1980s, his skin appearing paler and his facial features becoming almost androgynous. He was accused in 1993 of child sexual abuse, and though no charges were brought, his health suffered when he started using painkillers to cope with the stress. He married twice, first in 1994 and again in 1996, and brought up three children, one of them with a surrogate mother, actions that triggered more speculation about his life. In 2005, he was tried and acquitted of different child molestation allegations, which provoked a further decline in his health. Jackson died at the age of 50 on June 25, 2009, in Los Angeles, after suffering a cardiac arrest. His memorial service was broadcast live around the world, watched by up to one billion people.
Gang of police thugs beat Rodney King without mercy. This led to the LA riots of 1992
Rodney Glen King (born April 2, 1965 in Sacramento, California) is an African-American taxi driver who, in 1991, was stopped and then beaten by Los Angeles Police Department officers (Laurence Powell, Timothy Wind, Theodore Briseno and Sergeant Stacey Koon) after being chased for speeding.
A bystander, George Holliday, videotaped much of the event from a distance. Part of the video was broadcast around the world and shows four LA police officers restraining and repeatedly striking a black man, while four to six other officers stand by. There is no part of the tape that shows Mr. King attacking the officers, as some have claimed. King had also been tasered by the officers.
The resulting public outrage raised tensions between the black community and the LAPD, and increased anger over police brutality and issues such as unemployment, racial tension, and poverty in the black community of South Central Los Angeles. The four officers were tried in a state court for using excessive force, but were acquitted. The announcement of the acquittals sparked the 1992 Los Angeles riots.
Arrest and trial - Rodney King was arrested by a group of police officers on March 3, 1991. The incident, except for the first thirteen seconds after King stopped, was captured on video by a private citizen, George Holliday, from his apartment near the intersection of Foothill Blvd and Osborne St. in Lake View Terrace. The officers testified that they believed King was under the influence of the dissociative drug phencyclidine (PCP).
The Los Angeles district attorney charged the four officers with use of excessive force. The initial judge was replaced, however, and the new judge changed the venue, as well as the jury pool, citing contamination of the jury pool by the media coverage. The new venue was a new courthouse in Simi Valley in neighboring Ventura County. The jury consisted of Ventura County residents — ten whites, one Latino and one Asian. The prosecutor, Terry White, was African-American. The jury acquitted three of the officers, but could not agree about one of the charges for Powell. On April 29, 1992, only Powell was convicted.
Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley said, "the jury's verdict will not blind us to what we saw on that videotape. The men who beat Rodney King do not deserve to wear the uniform of the L.A.P.D."
The LA riots were triggered by the acquittal of police officers for the brutal beating of Rodney King. This clip shows Rodney King asking "Why can't we all just get along?"
LA riots and the aftermath
The news of acquittal triggered the Los Angeles riots of 1992. By the time the police, the US Army, the Marines and the National Guard restored order, the casualty included 55 deaths, 2,383 injuries, more than 7,000 fires, damages to 3,100 businesses, and nearly $1 billion in financial losses. Smaller riots occurred in other cities such as Las Vegas and Atlanta. On May 1, 1992, the third day of the L.A riots, King appeared in public before television news cameras to appeal for calm, asking:
"People, I just want to say, you know, can we all get along? Can we get along? Can we stop making it, making it horrible for the older people and the kids? ... It's just not right. It's not right. It's not, it's not going to change anything. We'll, we'll get our justice ... Please, we can get along here. We all can get along. I mean, we're all stuck here for a while. Let's try to work it out. Let's try to beat it. Let's try to beat it. Let's try to work it out.
Federal trial of officers
After the riots, the Department of Justice reinstated investigation and obtained an indictment of violations of federal civil rights against the four officers. The federal trial focused more on the evidence as to the training of officers instead of just relying on the videotape of the incident. The jury found Officer Laurence Powell and Sergeant Stacey Koon guilty, who were subsequently sentenced to 30 months of prison, while Timothy Wind and Theodore Briseno were acquitted of all charges.
Cultural impact of the event
The video of the beating is an example of inverse surveillance of citizens watching police. Several copwatch organizations were subsequently organized nationally to safeguard against police abuse, and an umbrella group, October 22nd Coalition to Stop Police Brutality, was created. The videogame Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas modeled the 1992 Los Angeles Riots in the game after a corrupt police officer was found not guilty.
King was awarded $3.8 million in a civil case and used some of the proceeds to start a hip hop music label, Straight Alta-Pazz Recording Company.

I happen to know a little bit about kashrut law, Mr. Lomax.
I'm aware of that, Your Honor.
That's why I feel confident in requesting a dismissal.
For God's sake, man...
Congratulations. Great job.
Pamela, you look lovely.
So, Phillipe satisfied?
What can I say?
Go figure it, a guy like Moyez living in some subterranean shithole all the while he's walking around with $15 million in the bank.
What do you think he's paying us in? Goat's blood?
Tarzan, we're billing you out at $400 an hour, my friend.
I don't see a whole lot of pro-bono work in your immediate future.
I figured you came down to make sure I didn't fuck this up.
Maybe I did.
Don't get too cocky, my boy. No matter how good you are don't let them see you coming. That's the gaffe, my friend.
You've gotta keep yourself small.
Be the little guy.
You know, the nerd, the leper the shitkicking surfer. Look at me.
Underestimated from day one.
You'd never think I was a master of the universe, would you?
That's your only weakness, as far as I can see.
It's the look.
That Florida stud thing.
What is that?
Excuse me, ma'am. Did I leave my boots under your bed?
Never worked a jury that didn't have a woman.
Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 - June 25, 2009)
This is my personal tribute to my favourite artist of all time, my hero and my inspiration.
Michael Jackson, dubbed the "King of Pop", was an American musician and one of the most commercially successful entertainers of all time. His unique contributions to music and dance, along with a highly publicized personal life, made him a prominent figure in popular culture for four decades.
He started a solo career in 1971, having made his debut in 1964 as a member of The Jackson 5. His 1982 album Thriller remains the best-selling album of all time, with four others — Off the Wall (1979), Bad (1987), Dangerous (1991), and HIStory (1995) — among the best selling. He popularized several physically complicated dance moves, such as the robot and the moonwalk. He is widely credited with having transformed the music video from a promotional tool into an art form, with videos such as Billie Jean, Beat It and Thriller making him the first African American artist to amass a strong crossover following on MTV.
A double-inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, his other achievements feature multiple Guinness World Records — including the "Most Successful Entertainer of All Time" — 13 Grammy Awards, 13 number one singles, and estimated sales of over 750 million records. He was also a notable philanthropist and humanitarian who donated millions of dollars to 39 charities, and also raised money through his own Heal the World Foundation.
Jackson's personal life generated significant controversy. His changing appearance was noticed from the early 1980s, with changes to the shape of his nose due to plastic surgeries and to the color of his skin due to the pigment-destroying skin disease VITILIGO drawing media publicity. He was accused in 1993 of child sexual abuse, although NO CHARGES were brought. He married twice, first in 1994 to Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of 'King of Rock' Elvis Presley, and again in 1996, to his Dermatologist and Nurse, Debbie Rowe, and brought up three children, including Prince Michael I and Paris, one of them born to a different mother, 'Blanket' (Prince Michael II). In 2005, he was tried and ACQUITTED of child molestation allegations; the singer cited monetary interest in some of the parents and persecution out of vengeance.
Jackson died at the age of 50 on June 25, 2009, in Los Angeles, California after suffering from cardiac arrest. His memorial service was broadcast live around the world to an estimated audience of 1 billion viewers.
