Nintendo has announced actress Nicole Kidman as the new face of its forthcoming Nintendo DS handheld gaming title More Brain Training from Dr Kawashima: How Old Is Your Brain?

The new game, which is the sequel to Nintendo’s runaway success DS title Brain Training, tests user’s intelligence and aptitude through a range of puzzles, questions and challenges in an attempt to improve the user’s ‘brain age’ – essentially a reflection of the user’s intellect.

. . .

“I love the concept that Nintendo is reaching out to new audiences with their self improvement products like Brain Training,” said Kidman. “Most importantly, I’ve quickly found that training my brain is a great way to keep my mind young,” she said.

Paris: "God has released me!"

Imprisoned heiress Paris Hilton says “I have become much more spiritual”

Complains of dry skin due to rules against moisturizers, plans to build “Paris Hilton Playhouse” upon release

By: Michelle Nichols Tues Jun 12, 2007

New York (Reuters) – Imprisoned hotel heiress Paris Hilton has said she believes God has given her a new chance and she plans to stop acting dumb and put her influence to good use.

Hilton called Barbara Walters on Sunday from the medical wing of a Los Angeles jail, where she is being held for violating probation in a drunken-driving case, and Walters.

“I’m not the same person I was,” Hilton told Walters.

“I know now that I can make a difference, that I have the power to do that. I have been thinking that I want to do different things when I am out of here. I have become much more spiritual. God has given me this new chance.”

Hilton was ordered back to jail on Friday after a judge overruled a sheriff’s decision to place her under house arrest on Thursday because of psychological problems. She had spent three days of an expected three-week term behind bars.

“I feel as if I’m a different person,” said Hilton, known for her party-going lifestyle.

She was sentenced last month to 45 days in jail, but with good behavior, Walters said, Hilton was due to be released on June 25 after serving a total 23 days.

“I feel that the purpose of my life is to be where I am,” Hilton told Walters. “My spirit or soul did not like the way I was being seen and that is why I was sent to jail. God has released me.”

When she is released, Hilton said, she might like to help in the fields of breast cancer or multiple sclerosis, diseases that her grandmothers suffered, or build a “Paris Hilton Playhouse” for sick children.

Hilton, who said other inmates had been friendly, added that her skin was very dry because she was not allowed any moisturizer.


Jeremy Irons connects with Prison Yoga program

Posted in celebrities, seva, yoga on June 4, 2007 by ewakening


Actor Jeremy Irons says his work as an actor has enabled him to connect with the prisoners he wants to help as part of a program that encourages inmates to meditate and practice yoga.
The actor is involved in Freeing the Human Spirit, a program that helps prisoners deal with their anger and stay out of jail through the practice of yoga and meditation.

“When you’re banged up in prison, as Paris Hilton will find out, I suppose, you’re stuck in a cell on your own, a very negative experience,” Irons says. “But if you can turn that cell into an ashram, if you can learn to meditate and do yoga, exercise your mind and exercise your body — then it becomes a positive experience.”
