Los Angeles, Jul 23 (AP/UNB) — David Hedison, who starred in the original sci-fi classic "The Fly" and appeared in two James Bond films, has died. He was 92.
He died Thursday in Los Angeles with his daughters at his side, a representative for the family, Jennifer Allen, said in an email Monday.
Hedison portrayed Capt. Lee Crane in the long-running sci-fi television series "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" and Spencer Harrison on the daytime series "Another World."
"Even in our deep sadness, we are comforted by the memory of our wonderful father," his daughters Alexandra and Serena said in a statement. "He loved us all dearly and expressed that love every day. He was adored by so many, all of whom benefited from his warm and generous heart. Our dad brought joy and humor wherever he went and did so with great style."
Hedison played scientist Andre Delambre who turned into an insect in the 1958 film "The Fly." He played CIA agent Felix Leiter in Bond films "To Live and Let Die" and "License to Kill."
The Providence, Rhode Island-native began his career under the name Al Hedison. In 1959, he took his middle name David after signing a contract with Twentieth Century Fox.
Hedison's family said the actor entertained friends and family with a positive attitude and "wicked" sense of humor.
London, Jul 23 (AP/UNB) — Kensington Palace has released three new photographs of Prince George for the young royal's 6th birthday.
The heir to the British throne turned 6 on Monday. It's become a palace tradition for snapshots taken by Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, to be shared with the public for the birthdays of her and Prince William's three children.
In two of George's latest photos, he is seen wearing a big smile and an English soccer jersey. The third shows him on a family holiday.
George, the oldest of Kate and William's children, is a great-grandson of Queen Elizabeth II. He is third in line for the throne behind his grandfather, Prince Charles, and his father.
Freehold, July 22 (AP/UNB) — A man has been indicted in the home invasion of a former "Real Housewives of New Jersey" cast member.
James Mainello also faces robbery, aggravated assault and other charges in the indictment handed up Monday by a Monmouth County grand jury.
Prosecutors say the 51-year-old Bayonne resident and another man were waiting when Dina Manzo and her then-fiancé David Cantin entered their Holmdel home in May 2017.
Cantin was beaten with a baseball bat, and Manzo was repeatedly kicked. They were bound with zip ties before the intruders made off with Manzo's engagement ring and cash.
Prosecutors say DNA on a zip tie matched Mainello's. Mainello's lawyer says he denies the charges.
Manzo and Cantin have since married.
Dhaka, July 22 (UNB) - The 39-year-old former first daughter and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, welcomed a baby boy on Monday, and broke the news on Twitter.
"This morning we welcomed our son, Jasper Clinton Mezvinsky," read the tweet. "We are overflowing with love and gratitude and can’t wait to introduce him to his big sister and brother."
The little one joins big sister Charlotte, 4, and brother Aidan, 3.
Clinton announced her pregnancy in January, sharing how excited the couple were to expand their family this summer, reports Yahoo.
“Marc and I have loved watching Charlotte be such a wonderful big sister and we’re excited to watch Aidan become a big brother!” she wrote on Twitter. “We cannot wait to meet our newest addition later this summer.”
She then responded to a fan, saying that her parents, Bill and Hillary Clinton, were excited to become grandparents to another baby.
Clinton spoke to ET in 2016 about how her mom had influenced her parenting.
“My daughter, I find myself giving her ridiculous praise for doing things like putting the top back on the cereal container. I'm like, 'Oh Charlotte, that was so good. Thank you for putting the top back on,'” she said. “And she beams at me and I'm like, 'Oh my gosh, I'm just like my mother.'"
Dhaka, Jul 22 (UNB) - HerNet TV, Asia’s first internet-based television channel solely focused on women’s wellbeing, was launched on Monday evening to help women share their stories with the world.
Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader MP opened the HerNet TV through a grand launching ceremony held at Gulshan Club in the city.
With the slogan ‘Holding Hands Together’, the television channel will give them an opportunity to be heard on issues that may not necessarily command coverage in the mainstream media.
The goal of HerNet TV is to break away from the one-dimensional representation of women by creating such documentaries, factual entertainment, and educational, informative and reality programmes for female audiences.
Dhaka North City Corporation Mayor Atiqul Islam, State Minister for Women and Children Affairs Begum Fazilatunnesa Indira and RAB Director General Dr Benazir Ahmed spoke at the launching event as special guests.
Besides, US Ambassador to Bangladesh Earl R Miller, Brazil Ambassador to Bangladesh Joao Tabajara Jr, HerNet TV chairman Hosna Pradhan and HerNet TV managing director Alisha Pradhan, herself an actress and model, spoke on the occasion.
Addressing the event, Obaidul Quader said Bangladesh attained huge progress in women’s empowerment. “The change maker (in the area) is a woman who is our leader,” he said referring to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
Quader, also the general secretary of ruling Awami League, said Sheikh Hasina steered Bangladesh to a new height. “In the last 44 years of history of Bangladesh, there was no efficient, bold and honest ruler like Sheikh Hasina, who is also a woman,” he added.
The Road Transport and Bridges Minister expected the newly launched HerNet TV will maintain decency avoiding propaganda, obscenity and vulgarism.
He urged the media to criticize the government in constructive ways so that mistakes can be corrected.
Dhaka North City Corporation Mayor Atiqul Islam said they want to make Dhaka city as a women-friendly one. “We want to build a women-friendly Dhaka city.”
He said the city corporation will install complaint boxes in 58 places so that women can lodge their complaints over various issues particularly sexual harassment seeking remedy.
