Nichelle Nichols The First Lady Of Science Fiction Has Passed Away

Actress and singer Nichelle Nichols, best known for her groundbreaking portrayal of Lt. Nyota Uhura in “Star Trek: The Original Series,” has died at age 89, according to a statement from her son, Kyle Johnson. Nichols died from natural causes, he said. Nichols portrayed communications officer Lt. Nyota Uhura in the “Star Trek” TV series and many of its film offshoots. When “Star Trek” began in 1966, Nichols was a television rarity: a Black woman in a notable role on a prime-time television series. There had been African-American women on TV before, but they often played domestic workers and had small roles; Nichols’ Uhura was an integral part of the multicultural “Star Trek” crew.

The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. called it “the first non-stereotypical role portrayed by a Black woman in television history.” Nichols is widely known for participating in one of the first interracial kisses on US television when her character kissed James T. Kirk, portrayed by White Canadian actor William Shatner. In an interview with CNN in 2014, Nichols said the kiss scene “changed television forever, and it also changed the way people looked at one another.” After “Trek’s” three-season run, Nichols dedicated herself to the space program. She helped NASA in making the agency more diverse, helping to recruit astronauts Sally Ride, Judith Resnik and Guion Bluford, among others.

George Takei, who portrayed the USS Enterprise’s helmsman Hikaru Sulu, posted a touching tribute to his co-star. “I shall have more to say about the trailblazing, incomparable Nichelle Nichols, who shared the bridge with us as Lt. Uhura of the USS Enterprise, and who passed today at age 89,” wrote Takei on Twitter. “For today, my heart is heavy, my eyes shining like the stars you now rest among, my dearest friend.” NASA tweeted “We celebrate the life of Nichelle Nichols, Star Trek actor, trailblazer, and role model, who symbolized to so many what was possible. She partnered with us to recruit some of the first women and minority astronauts, and inspired generations to reach for the stars.”

Nichols was born Grace Dell Nichols near Chicago in 1932. (Unhappy with Grace, she took the name Nichelle when she was a teenager.) Her grandfather was a White Southerner who married a Black woman, causing a rift in his family. Blessed with a four-octave vocal range, Nichols was performing in local clubs by the time she was 14. Among the performers she met was Duke Ellington, who later took her on tour. She also worked extensively in Chicago clubs and in theater. She moved to Los Angeles in the early ’60s and landed a role in a Gene Roddenberry series, “The Lieutenant.” A number of “Star Trek” veterans, including Leonard Nimoy, Walter Koenig and Majel Barrett, also worked on the show. When Roddenberry was creating “Trek,” he remembered Nichols. She was in Europe when she got the call.

Nichols was once tempted to leave the series; however, a conversation with Martin Luther King Jr. changed her mind. Towards the end of the first season, Nichols was given the opportunity to take a role on Broadway. She preferred the stage to the television studio, so she decided to take the role. Nichols went to Roddenberry’s office, told him that she planned to leave, and handed him her resignation letter. Roddenberry tried to convince Nichols to stay but to no avail, so he told her to take the weekend off and if she still felt that she should leave then he would give her his blessing. But it took Dr. Martin King Jr to convince her to stay on the show. King personally encouraged her to stay on the series, saying she “could not give up” because she was playing a vital role model for Black children and young women across the country, as well as for other children who would see Black people appearing as equals, going so far as to favorably compare her work on the series to the marches of the ongoing civil rights movement.

Former NASA astronaut Mae Jemison has cited Nichols’ role of Lieutenant Uhura as her inspiration for wanting to become an astronaut and Whoopi Goldberg has also spoken of Nichols’ influence. In her role as Lieutenant Uhura, Nichols kissed white actor William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk in the November 22, 1968, Star Trek episode “Plato’s Stepchildren”. The episode is cited as the first example of an interracial kiss on scripted U.S. television. The Shatner/Nichols kiss was seen as groundbreaking, even though it was portrayed as having been forced by alien telekinesis. There was some praise and almost no dissent. Despite the cancellation of the series in 1969, Star Trek lived on in other ways, and continued to play a part in Nichols’ life. She again provided the voice of Uhura in Star Trek: The Animated Series.

Nichols co-starred in six Star Trek films, the last one being Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Between the end of the original series and the Star Trek animated series and feature films, Nichols appeared in small television and film roles. She briefly appeared as a secretary in Doctor, You’ve Got to Be Kidding! (1967), and portrayed Dorienda, a foul-mouthed madam in Truck Turner (1974) opposite Isaac Hayes. In the comedy film Snow Dogs (2002), Nichols appeared as the mother of the male lead, played by Cuba Gooding Jr. n 2006, she appeared as the title character in the film Lady Magdalene’s, the madam of a legal Nevada brothel in tax default. Nichols released two music albums. Down to Earth is a collection of standards released in 1967, during the original run of Star Trek. Out of This World, released in 1991, is more rock oriented and is themed around Star Trek and space exploration.

In her autobiography, Nichols wrote that she was romantically involved with Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry for a few years in the 1960s. She said the affair ended well before Star Trek began, when she realized Roddenberry was also involved with her acquaintance Majel Hudec (known as Majel Barrett). Nichols married twice, first to dancer Foster Johnson (1917–1981). They were married in 1951 and divorced that same year. Johnson and Nichols had one child together, Kyle Johnson, who was born August 14, 1951. She married for the second time to Duke Mondy in 1968. They were divorced in 1972. In early 2018, Nichols was diagnosed with dementia, and subsequently announced her retirement from convention appearances. Asteroid 68410 Nichols is named in her honor. Nichols died of heart failure in Silver City, New Mexico, on July 30, 2022, at the age of 89.

A Detailed Guide to Live Porn Cams

Have you ever participated in a live porn webcam show? Cam sites have increased in popularity owing to the interaction between models and viewers. No other form of pornography allows individuals to interact with the performers they see on the screen either in a public or private chatroom. There is an abundance of cam sites online, imposing different content requirements and rules to everyone using the platform.

The guide below will introduce you to live porn cams.

What are cam sites?
Webcam websites feature cam models streaming various types of sexual content in order to attract the attention of viewers. For instance, some performers masturbate in front of the camera, while others focus on dirty talk. Some models take part in foreplay or sexual intercourse, hosting public or private steams. Make sure you go here to check out some hot foreplay ideas.

Furthermore, certain performers only show their intimate body parts to viewers, whereas others engage in sexual activities with other webcam models. The content streamed by performers is determined by their preferences, as well as the restrictions imposed by the live porn site.

The majority of such websites provide viewers with a chat feature, allowing them to communicate with the models by texting them. Users give suggestions to performers in their texts, requesting them to perform certain actions during the show. The models are those who decide whether to fulfill their requirements or simply ignore them.

How do these sites work?
The purpose of cam websites is for performers to establish a relationship with their fans. Naturally, webcam models engage in such shows to earn finances. The largest number of sites enable performers to host their own chatrooms free of charge. Nevertheless, hosting a free chatroom isn’t exactly profitable for webcam models, as they get paid only by getting tips.

By using a tipping system, live porn cam sites provide payment to performers based on their tips from viewers. The longer viewers enjoy these sessions, the higher the likelihood for models to earn tips in the form of tokens and credits. These virtual payments are later converted into money and given to performers. Visit this link, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Token_coin, to learn about the types and uses of token coins.

The most lucrative opportunity for performers is participating in private shows, referring to the sessions where viewers and models leave public streaming to engage in a private session. In the course of these shows, the model adheres to the instructions of the viewer while getting paid for each minute of the performance. Nevertheless, the webcam model doesn’t take all the money to herself/himself but shares it with the live porn site.

Additionally, some websites offer two-way private sessions where users show themselves on camera as well. Also, webcam models host group private shows with a limited number of viewers. Unlike free chatrooms, these sessions aren’t open for everyone to join.

Furthermore, performers differ in their earnings. Their payments depend on the number of fans, their popularity, and the reputation of the website.

Are these sites legal?
Live porn sites are legal for performers and users over the age of eighteen. There are numerous opportunities for viewers to watch porn free of charge by enjoying 24/7 live porn shows. Anyhow, most of these platforms restrict explicit content that goes against their regulations. These websites impose chatroom etiquette in order for users not to harass the performers.

In addition, chatroom participants are required to adhere to the etiquette by respecting the rules related to using inappropriate language. The minute a viewer exhibits unacceptable behavior, performers are allowed to ban the user from the chatroom. Sometimes, the role of blocking participants is trusted in the hands of chatroom moderators.

The purpose of chatroom etiquette is for webcam girls to be treated with respect instead of being downgraded by participants. Also, it’s paramount for the personal life of these workers to remain private, not exposed to the public. Even though they have an online workplace, it doesn’t mean their lives should be shared with the public.

Final thoughts
When looking for a new form of sexual excitement, join a live porn chatroom. It’s one of a kind, arousing experience!

While a cause of death has yet not been revealed, Straczynski said the cast and crew of “Babylon 5” had “known for some time now that Mira’s health was fading.

Furlan was born in the former Yugoslavia, where she had a number of stage roles and was part of the Croatian National Theatre, and emigrated to the U.S. in 1991. She joined space opera “Babylon 5” as Delenn, the Minbari ambassador to the titular space station, in 1993, and would go on to star in the series for its full five seasons.

RIP Julie Strain

Julie Strain who was an American actress and model who was Penthouse Pet of the Month in June 1991 and later chosen as the magazine’s Pet of the Year in 1993, has died on January 10th.  Nearly one year after a false report, it was reported that she died from dementia; she was 58 years old.

Tanya Roberts Passes Away

Tanya Roberts, the breathy-voiced actress who found fame in the 1980s as a detective on “Charlie’s Angels” and as a brave earth scientist in the James Bond film “A View to a Kill,” finally died on Monday night in Los Angeles. She was 65. Her death, at Cedars-Sinai Hospital, was confirmed on Tuesday by her companion, Lance O’Brien. Her publicist, who was given erroneous information, had announced her death to the news media early Monday, and some news organizations published obituaries about her prematurely.

The publicist, Mike Pingel, said Ms. Roberts collapsed on Dec. 24 after walking her dogs near her Hollywood Hills home and was put on a ventilator at the hospital. He did not give the cause of death, but said it was not related to Covid-19. He said she had not been noticeably ill before she collapsed.

Tanya Roberts Still Alive

Tanya Roberts’ publicist retracts report that said actor had died. The former Bond girl was mistakenly reported dead after being hospitalised following a fall at her home. Tanya Roberts, who played Roger Moore’s love interest in A View to a Kill and later starred in the sitcom That ‘70s Show as Midge Pinciotti, has been hospitalised after falling at her home. Her publicist, Mike Pingel, mistakenly reported the 65-year-old dead on Monday, leading multiple outlets, including the Guardian, to publish stories saying she had died. Pingel later told the Associated Press that Roberts was still alive as of 10am in California but was in a poor condition.

He had said earlier that Roberts collapsed in her home and was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Pingel said Robert’s husband, Lance O’Brien, told him that he held his wife and she “seemed for him to slip away”. The publicist said he was awaiting further updates on Roberts’ condition. Pingel told the PA news agency that the family was waiting for further news from medics, adding: “It does not look good.” The US website TMZ first reported her death, saying she had collapsed while walking her dogs on 24 December and was admitted to hospital.

Ashton Kutcher has taken upon the job of clearing out the confusion amidst his contemporaries that Tanya Roberts is alive. The confusion about the information started when Roberts’ publicist Mike Pingel confirmed about her death on CNN after which he told NBC News that Roberts is still alive. However, many of the show’s cast members didn’t get the memo as they were posting condolences for the James Bond actor. Ashton tweeted to their comments and made them know about the correct information. 

RIP Tanya Roberts

Actress Tanya Roberts has died. Best known for her roles as a Bond girl and on That ’70s Show, Roberts died Sunday after a brief hospitalization. She was 65. The actress reportedly took her dogs for a walk on Christmas Eve, and collapsed upon returning home, according to TMZ. She was put on a ventilator after being hospitalized, but never recovered. The outlet reports that the actress did not appear to be ill in the days leading up to her collapse, and that her death is not related to COVID-19. However, additional information was not available.

She relocated from New York with her mother to live in Toronto for several years, where she started formulating a photo portfolio and laying plans for a modeling career. Her career began as a model in TV ads for Excedrin, Ultra Brite, Clairol, and Cool Ray sunglasses.

Bombshell (2019)

Bombshell is a 2019 American drama film directed by Jay Roach and written by Charles Randolph. The film stars Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, and Margot Robbie, and is based upon the accounts of the women at Fox News who set out to expose CEO Roger Ailes for sexual harassment. Actors John Lithgow, Kate McKinnon, Connie Britton, Malcolm McDowell, and Allison Janney appear in supporting roles. The project was first announced in May 2017 following Ailes’s death, with Roach confirmed as director the following year. Much of the cast joined that summer and filming began in October 2018 in Los Angeles. It entered into a limited release in the United States on December 13, 2019, before a wide release on December 20, by Lionsgate.

After co-moderating the 2016 Republican debate, Megyn Kelly faces numerous insults from Donald Trump, who is upset because she asked him about his offensive comments toward women. With pressure from the network, and after receiving death threats and unwanted paparazzi attention, Kelly and Trump eventually reconcile. Meanwhile, Gretchen Carlson is removed as co-anchor of the popular Fox and Friends show, and is transferred to a less popular show. Inundated by sexist comments on and off the air, including by Roger Ailes—as well as misogynistic policies like requiring female anchors to wear short dresses—Carlson meets with lawyers, Nancy Smith and Neil Mullin, who explain that Carlson’s contract prevents her from suing the network, but she can sue Ailes personally.

Pospisil meets fellow staffer Jess Carr on her first day on The O’Reilly Factor, and the two sleep together. The next day, Ailes begins sexually harassing Pospisil. Pospisil begins to tell Carr about what happened, but Carr interrupts, saying she cannot get involved. Carlson is later fired, ostensibly for her on-air support of the federal assault weapons ban, and decides to sue Ailes. When the news breaks the next day, Ailes denies the allegations, and Kelly admits to her core team Ailes sexually harassed her when she started at Fox. In the following weeks, despite a number of other women voicing their public support of Ailes, Kelly conspicuously refuses to make comment on Carlson’s accusations.

After more women accuse Ailes, Kelly starts to find other women at the network. Kelly visits Pospisil, and the two confide in each other. Kelly advises Pospisil to come forward, and after consulting with Carr, she does. Through her attorneys, Carlson later informs Ailes she has recorded conversations to support her claims. Defeated, Ailes is fired by Fox co-creator Rupert Murdoch. Ailes settles Carlson’s lawsuit for $20 million and an apology from Fox, but the agreement contains a non-disclosure agreement. Fox eventually paid the victims of sexual harassment $50 million, while paying Ailes and O’Reilly $65 million in severance.

Nicole Kidman looks so odd in this film. Charlize is watchable as usual and even though I know that Margot Robbie is beautiful, acting wise she isn’t all that. 6.5 outta 10! I don’t think I would want to watch it again. Interesting enough for the story, which I was not aware about, and a one time watch!

In 2005, she appeared as the protagonist’s flying, superhero mother in the film Sky High. In 2004, Preston was in the Maroon 5 music video “She Will Be Loved”, which featured a love triangle and romantic scenes between Preston and Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine. In 2007, Preston appeared in the crime thriller Death Sentence, in which she played Helen Hume, the wife of Kevin Bacon’s character Nick. In 2008, she was cast in a television pilot called Suburban Shootout, and had a short term recurring role in Medium. In 2008, Preston starred in the Lifetime television film The Tenth Circle, directed by Peter Markle. It was shot in Nova Scotia and featured Ron Eldard, Britt Robertson, Michael Riley, Jamie Johnston and Geordie Brown.

Preston was married to actor Kevin Gage from 1985 until their divorce in 1987. She also had a relationship with George Clooney. She was briefly engaged to Charlie Sheen in 1990, but ended the relationship shortly after he allegedly shot her in the arm. Preston first met John Travolta in 1987 while filming The Experts. They married in 1991, traveling to Paris on an Air France Concorde for a wedding ceremony at the Hotel de Crillon (on the Place de la Concorde) on September 5, 1991. However, a second ceremony was required because the first, performed by a French Scientology minister (both Preston and Travolta are Scientologists), was considered invalid. The second ceremony took place on September 12 in Daytona Beach, Florida. Preston and Travolta have had three children: son Jett (April 13, 1992 – January 2, 2009), daughter Ella Bleu (born 2000), and a second son, Benjamin (born 2010).

Pork Chops, Prawns, Chicken & Beer

The previous weekend I was back with Alza at the Blue Rock Restobar in Olive Downtown. This has become my favourite place to hang out for a few drinks and some good food, as mentioned in my previous post about this place. Probably it is the company :)

My fav is the grilled pork chops in bbq sauce. Though they were kinda huge.

All in all a great afternoon spending it drinking beer and enjoying the good food and company.

Food & Beer At Olive Downtown’s Bar

Once again, we were at Olive Downtown’s restobar The Blue Note. This is quickly becoming my favourite place to drink deer and hang out with a beautiful girl. The we being me and Alza. Fried cheeseballs, fried chicken, French fries (it’s kinda her favourite snack) and some beer. We ended the afternoon with some pastries as we both have a sweet tooth.

A Wednesday Afternoon @ The Ava Lounge

This is from a couple of weeks ago. On a Wednesday in NOvember, I had taken a personal day to chill out at home. However, I also wanted to get some beer and Alza was also free. She asked me if I could meet her in the evening but I prefer to meet up during the afternoon hours so we decided to meet up at 1 pm at Radisson so we could chill at the Ava Lounge.

We had beer – she moved to Coke after one beer, while I had three. We ordered some seekh kebab (not that good) lots of French Fries, some chicken and salad. And ofcourse we took a bunch of pictures.

By 5pm I was tired and wanted to get home. BY 5:30 pm we left and I dropped her off at her place before going on home.
