YAHOO News - 10 Real-Life People Who Bashed Their Biopics, Oct 19, 2013

Julian Assange and Benedict Cumberbatch
 "Biography films aren't always the most accurate — or flattering — of endeavors, at least in the eyes of the people the movie's about. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has made plenty of headlines for challenging the accuracy of this week's new release "The Fifth Estate," which explores the origins of the controversial whistle-blowing website. In an open letter to his big-screen counterpart, the ubiquitous Benedict Cumberbatch, Assange praised the actor but criticized the film. "I believe you are a good person, but I do not believe that this film is a good film," wrote Assange. "I do not believe it is going to be positive for me or the people I care about. I believe that it is going to be overwhelmingly negative for me and the people I care about. It is based on a deceitful book by someone who has a vendetta against me and my organisation." Assange isn't alone in not being a fan of his own movie. Here are 10 other people who were none too fond of their Hollywood treatments."Alexander Language Schools, Franchise Alexander Language Schools info@als-alexander.org or interalex1@yahoo.com Products and Services

GREEK REPORTER - Officials Investigating ID of Girl Found in Roma Camp, Oct 10, 2013


 "New evidence has been disclosed regarding the unbelievable story of the little girl who was kidnapped by a Roma couple in Farsala (Greece). The Greek police have now shared the girl’s photographs publicly in hopes that someone will recognize her, and help find some answers as to where she comes from and who her parents are. An anthropologist has been summoned to examine the girl in order to identify her place of origin by analyzing the structure of her bones. The four-year old girl, whose name is Maria, does not speak (except for a few words and sounds), and is not as mature as an average girl of her age, and very attached to the roma woman who claims to be her mother. In the beginning of the investigation, the 39-year-old man and the 40-year-old woman claimed to be her natural parents, but their features had nothing to do with the girl’s characteristics (blond hair, green eyes, light skin). Subsequently, a DNA test was performed, officially confirming what the police thought from the start- the child is not biologically theirs."Alexander Language Schools, Franchise Alexander Language Schools info@als-alexander.org or interalex1@yahoo.com Products and Services
