Miss Arizona USA contestant battles rare ovarian cancer
But while most of the contestants are only fighting for the crown, one Scottsdale woman is also fighting for her life. In July, 25-year-old Kristina Anderson was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of ovarian cancer and began chemotherapy treatments just three days later. As she continues to battle the disease, Anderson said preparing for the pageant has been an escape for her. Miss Arizona USA pageant is a little different than the county fair pageants Im used to, Anderson said. With her family living in Illinois, Anderson has found her support system in an unexpected place the doctors office. One of Andersons nurses, Sandy LeDuke, has been helping her focus on pageant details. Im just kind of along for the ride, LeDuke said. I went with her to pick out some dresses and things. If both cancer and the upcoming pageant werent enough to think about, Anderson is also struggling to pay for her treatments. Her insurance has denied her the specific coverage she has needed for the last six months. Fortunately, fundraisers have been set up in Scottsdale to help Anderson pay some of her medical bills. Though Anderson still has a long way to go, she hopes her journey to Miss Arizona will help inspire others to keep fighting too. Just be positive and be grateful for what you have, Anderson said.
USA Truck issues statement regarding Knight Transportation suit
USA Network may be the No. 1 basic-cable network for the seventh year running, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t want to up it’s game when it comes to original programming. On Wednesday USA announced that it had given the green light to three new drama pilots, including one from “Burn Notice” creator Matt Nix. “These pilots illustrate our continued commitment to creating the next evolution of powerful original dramas for which USA is well known,” said Chris McCumber, the network’s president, in a news release. “This particular mix of dramas comes from some of the top writers and producers in the industry, each of whom brings a distinct point of view and unique talent for developing high-stakes story lines and compelling characters.” The announcement that Nix has a new show in the works comes hot on the heels of the September series finale of “Burn Notice.”In its seven years on air, Burn Notice was a huge hit for USA. In 2009 it became the most-watched scripted series ever on basic cable in the coveted 18-49 demographic. It was nominated for multiple Emmys over the years. FALL TV 2013: Watch the trailers In September Nix told The Times , “I have another show at USA — a pilot — hopefully it’ll go to series but you never know, and I’m acutely conscious of how lucky I was to have something like ‘Burn Notice’ my first time out. I know firsthand not everything is successful and you really have to savor the things that are.” Nix’s new project is titled “Complications” and it’s about a jaded suburban ER doctor who saves a child’s life during a drive-by shooting, killing one of the assailants in the process. It turns out, however, that the boy’s life has been marked and the doctor makes it his mission to protect him. The second pilot to get the go is “The Novice,” about a recent college grad who, thanks to the sour economy, turns to a life of crime to support himself and his family. It was created by Joe and Tony Gayton ( “Hell on Wheels” ).

Governor Ben S. Bernanke announced last month that QE would continue due to weak labour data. That not only stopped the flight of capital from emerging economies, but probably induced their return as well. As a result the INR which hit new lows of nearly INR 70 to the $, has since strengthened, closer to the INR 60 levels, due to reconfirmation by the Fed. that QE would continue. However Subbarao was not there to enjoy the change in fortune of the INR, having had to depart from the RBI, coinciding with the lows that the INR had had hit at that time, probably under a cloud, but due to no fault of his. So, the USA has been responsible for three global economic crises thus far experienced by the world in the last nine decades, two, which were of a greater dimension, while the third, from a relative perspective, had a lesser effect on the rest of the world. The first was the Great Depression of 1929, followed 79 years later by the global financial crisis which precipitated into a Great Recession, while the third and the last were fears that the Fed. would unwind its QE programme, the effects of which were felt in emerging economies such as India and Sri Lanka, particularly in the second and third quarters of the current year, made worse by the fact that those countries run huge current account deficits in their balance of payments (BoP). The fourth calamity that appeared to be in the wings at least till a few days ago was the possibility that the USA might default on its obligations because of expectations that it would reach its approved debt ceiling by Thursday (October 17) and the uncertainty as to what would happen thereafter. This was due to an impasse caused by the Republican controlled Congress and Democrat President Barack Obama on Obamacare, Obamas signature healthcare bill and spending related to it. But last Thursday (October 10), the Republicans got off from their high horse and began negotiations with Obama to find a solution to this imbroglio, by possibly reaching an agreement to allow for the debt ceiling to be raised temporarily to cover a further six weeks.
