    Injured

    Actor Jason Priestly, who starred in the 90s mega-hit Beverly Hills, 90210 with Tiffani Theissen, was involved in a serious race car accident which injured his spine, head and feet. The 32 year-old, crashed his car into a wall at a speed of nearly 180 mph (290 kmph) after hitting a slick patch on the track. Jason Priestly suffered a concussion, a broken nose, a broken spine (but not paralysis) and fractures in both feet. Jason has since had surgery, left the hospital and is undergoing physical therapy.

    Couple Newz

    After being spotted on more than one occasion looking quite cuddly, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are no longer keepin' their relationship a secret, according to Us Weekly. Jennifer Lopez and her husband Cris Judd separated in June of 2002. Ben and Jennifer got to know each other last winter while shooting the flick Gigli.

    “Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.”
