TIANANMEN SQUARE:
With protests for democratic reforms entering their seventh week, the Chinese government authorizes its soldiers and tanks to reclaim Beijing's Tiananmen Square at all costs. By nightfall on June 4, Chinese troops had forcibly cleared the square, killing hundreds and arresting thousands of demonstrators and suspected dissidents.
AUSTRIA, DENMARK, FRANCE, NETHERLANDS, NORWAY, SPAIN, SWEDEN, SWITZERLAND and THE U.K. HAVE REPORTED CASES, the WorldHealthOrg said.

The resistance to antibiotics in laboratory testing suggests the strain may have originated in a geographic region with high levels of antibiotic use, possibly an area with domestic farm animals or in a developing country, Tauxe said. THE “EPICENTER” OF THE OUTBREAK IS THE AREA SURROUNDING THE NORTHERN GERMAN CITY OF HAMBURG, said John Dalli, the European commissioner for health and consumer policy. AUSTRIA, DENMARK, FRANCE, NETHERLANDS, NORWAY, SPAIN, SWEDEN, SWITZERLAND and THE U.K. HAVE REPORTED CASES, the WorldHealthOrg said. All infections found outside Germany, except for two, are in people who had recently visited northern Germany or had contact with a visitor from the area, according to the WHO. TWO E. COLI CASES WERE IDENTIFIED IN THE U.S. AMONG TRAVELERS RETURNING FROM EUROPE, according to the CDC.

On this day in 1935, George Herman "Babe" Ruth, one of the greatest players in the history of baseball, ends his Major League playing career after 22 seasons, 10 World Series and 714 home runs. The following year, Ruth, a larger-than-life figure whose name became synonymous with baseball, was one of the first five players inducted into the sport's hall of fame. George Herman Ruth was born February 6, 1895, into a poor family in Baltimore. As a child, he was sent to St. Mary's Industrial School for Boys, a school run by Roman Catholic brothers, where he learned to play baseball and was a standout athlete. At 19, Ruth was signed by the Baltimore Orioles, then a Boston Red Sox minor league team. Ruth's fellow teammates and the media began referring to him as team owner Jack Dunn's newest "babe," a nickname that stuck. Ruth would later acquire other nicknames, including "The Sultan of Swat" and "The Bambino."
Deadly E.Coli outbreak in Europe, began in northern Germany.

ON THIS DAY in 1980, CNN (Cable News Network), the world's first 24-hour television news network, makes its debut. The network signed on at 6 p.m. EST from its headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, with a lead story about the attempted assassination of civil rights leader Vernon Jordan. CNN went on to change the notion that news could only be reported at fixed times throughout the day. At the time of CNN's launch, TV news was dominated by three major networks--ABC, CBS and NBC--and their nightly 30-minute broadcasts. Initially available in less than two million U.S. homes, today CNN is seen in more than 89 million American households and over 160 million homes international. CNN was the brainchild of Robert "Ted" Turner, a colorful, outspoken businessman dubbed the "Mouth of the South." Turner was born on November 19, 1938, in Cincinnati, Ohio, and as a child moved with his family to Georgia, where his father ran a successful billboard advertising company. After his father committed suicide in 1963, Turner took over the business and expanded it. In 1970, he bought a failing Atlanta TV station that broadcast old movies and network reruns and within a few years Turner had transformed it into a "superstation," a concept he pioneered, in which the station was beamed by satellite into homes across the country. Turner later bought the Atlanta Braves baseball team and the Atlanta Hawks basketball team and aired their games on his network, TBS (Turner Broadcasting System). In 1977, Turner gained international fame when he sailed his yacht to victory in the prestigious America's Cup race.

After Conaway was discovered unresponsive on May 11, manager Phil Brock first said that an overdose of painkillers was a likely culprit, but that theory was disputed by Celebrity Rehab's Dr. Drew Pinsky, who said that there was no sign of an intentional overdose. "There is no evidence showing Jeff died from an overdose. This was aspiration with overwhelming pneumonia and sepsis. Jeff is another example of a pharmaceutical death from the overutilization of prescription drugs," Pinsky, who visited Conaway late last week at Encino-Tarzana Regional Medical Center, told E! News Friday. "Please continue to pray for his friends and family. They appreciate your support." Conaway's death has rattled his pals. "Yet again another beautiful soul is wasted due to the growing problem of pharmaceutical addiction," Corey Feldman told E! News. "I have lost way too many friends because of irresponsible practices where doctors are overmedicating obvious addicts. It's horriffic and disgusting! My heart goes out to Jeff's family, he was a wonderful human." Former Munsters star Butch Patrick, who partied with Conaway back in the day, simply said, "I am devastated." While Conaway sought treatment for his various addictions back in the 1980s, he had relapsed by the 2000s. He appeared on Celebrity Fit Club in 2006, but left the show to go to rehab early in the season. In 2008, he took his demons to Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew, where he became known for his trainwreck tendencies. "I've tried to commit suicide 21 times," he told Howard Stern in an interview that year. "I'm terrible at it! I get depressed over how come I can't kill myself," he laughed, when Howard and Robin Quivers joked that he was obviously terrible at it. "Mostly it's been with pills," he admitted when asked how he had attempted suicide in the past. "I've taken enough pills to knock an elephant out...God wants me on this planet for some reason or another." In January 2010, Lizzi (whose real name is Victoria Spinoza),  told E! News that Conaway had been increasingly despondent in the days before a drug-induced fall at his home left him with a broken hip that required surgery and a stay in a convelescent home. "He knows the meds are killing him. He can't get off them," Lizzi said. E! News last spoke to Conaway while he was recuperating in March 2010, and he sounded more optimistic. "I have made a tremendous amount of progress," he said. "I wasn't about to give up. I didn't come this far to give up. God didn't bring me this far to drop me." Though Lizzi and Conaway were in contact in the days before his collapse, their relationship had been rocky for some time. They filed dueling restraining orders against each other in March, with Spinoza claiming that her ex was "mentally unstable and dangerous" and Conaway claiming that she was stealing his medication and sneaking into their house to drug him at night. Lizzi was the one who discovered Conaway unconscious and called 911, having driven to his house to take him to a doctor's appointment. Earlier this week, a judge granted a temporary restraining order, filed by Conaway's sister, that barred Lizzi from visiting Conaway in the hospital. Lizzi was unsuccessful in her bid to overturn the order and didn't have a chance to see Conaway before he passed. "Vikki is distraught right now. She can't even breathe. She wasn't able to see," mutual friend Aubry Fisher told E! News. Conaway was married to Rona Newton-John, Olivia's sister, in the early '80s. He is survived by wife Kerri Young Conaway, sisters Shreve and Michele Goffin, and stepson Emerson. May he finally rest in peace.

Man wanted for questioning in missing child case http://ping.fm/tSj3P
Last night I found this article about Henry Kissinger. Coupled with the Wikipedia article about him, I learned some things that took away a lot of the respect I had for him. His attitude and actions towards the Jews and the nation of Israel, were more than surprising and disappointing.
***********
THE JERUSALEM POST - first published 12-27-2007:
HENRY KISSINGER'S Jewishness was equally a source of neurosis, according to Willie Fort. Reared as a deeply observant Jew, Kissinger slipped away from beneath the Orthodox shadow of his parental home when he was drafted into the army in 1943. His rebellion was so absolute and his assimilation so total that when he was sworn in as secretary of state he took his oath of office on a Christian Bible on a Sabbath day with his gentile second wife at his side. Yet, try as he might, Henry Kissinger would never succeed in shedding his thin, Jewish refugee skin. Willie emitted a cynical laugh at this, and observed, "I learn through the White House grapevine that whenever Nixon feels Kissinger is getting too big for his boots he is not averse to resorting to nasty anti-Semitic barbs to cut him down to size. He has even been known to call him 'my Jew boy' to his face. It is said that he is careful not to bring too many Jewish staff members to meetings with the president for fear of arousing his anti-Semitic streak. And when it is aroused he pretends to shrug it off, concealing his humiliation. But then, back in the privacy of his room, he invariably goes into a tantrum and takes it out on his subordinates."
HENRY KISSINGER - 88 YRS OLD TODAY:
Kissinger was born, May 27, 1923, Heinz Alfred Kissinger in Fürth Bavaria, Germany during the Weimar Republic to a family of German Jews. His father, Louis Kissinger (1887–1982) was a schoolteacher. His mother, Paula Stern Kissinger (1901–1998), was a homemaker. Kissinger has a younger brother, Walter Kissinger. The surname Kissinger was adopted in 1817 by his great-great-grandfather Meyer Löb, after the city of Bad Kissingen. In 1938, fleeing Nazi persecution his family moved to New York. Henry Alfred Kissinger is a German-born American political scientist, diplomat, and recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. He served as National Security Advisor and later concurrently as Secretary of State in the administrations of Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. After his term, his opinion was still sought by many following presidents and many world leaders.
