Are you a fan of James Bond? Fans can mark the 50th anniversary of the British spy on film with an auction of memorabilia. Christie's kicks off an auction beginning today through October 8th, including a swimsuit that Daniel Craig wore in "Casino Royale." The auction called "50 Years of James Bond," will take place entirely online. However, ten lots will be auctioned off in a private, invitation-only event on October 5th in London. Christie's director Nicolette Tomkinson says memorabilia from every official Bond film ever made will be available. The expected highlight of the auction is the 2008 Aston Martin 6 Litre V12 DBS 2-Door Coupe used by Craig during the car chase in "Quantum of Solace." Profits from the auction will be donated to a dozen charities, including UNICEF.
My arms are tired! David Goggins has been doing pull-ups all through the night in an attempt to break a world record. According to SpecialOps.org, Goggins is hoping to break the world record for the most pull-ups in a 24-hour period. He began his world record quest yesterday morning on NBC's "Today" show, and when he was only six-hours in he crossed the halfway mark. By 8:00 a.m. Eastern Friday Goggins hopes to have completed more than four-thousand-and-20 pull-ups. He is attempting the feat to help raise money for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. The Foundation supports families of injured Special Operations personnel from the U.S. Armed Forces. Goggins is a former Navy SEAL who now competes in Ironman competitions. The current record is held by Stephen Hyland, who set the mark in July of last year.
And have you ever turned off the television because of what was on? The Parents Television Council warns that parents relying on the television ratings system to block objectionable content may want to reconsider its usefulness. The PTC examined all primetime programming for the four major broadcast networks during the first two weeks of November 2011 sweeps period. Their study found 44 percent of the instances of explicit content on TV-PG programming did not include the needed descriptor -- "L" for language, "D" for suggestive dialogue, "S" for sexual situations, or "V" for violence.
Have a Great Weekend!
