Jonathan Demme, the talented director of Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia, Something Wild, Talking Heads' Stop Making Sense, and numerous other great films, has died at 73. His death was caused by esophageal cancer. From the New York Times : A personable man with the curiosity gene and the what-comes-next instinct of someone who likes to both hear and tell stories, Mr. Demme had a good one of his own, a Mr. Deeds kind of tale in which he wandered into good fortune and took advantage of it. A former movie publicist, he had an apprenticeship in low-budget B-movies with the producer Roger Corman before turning director.

VANCOUVER, Canada: Serena Williams had no intention of sharing her pregnancy with the world last week but spilled the beans when she accidentally uploaded the "20 weeks" photo of herself on Snapchat, the world No. 1 said on Tuesday. Williams, who was wearing a yellow swimsuit in the 'selfie', quickly deleted the post but later confirmed her pregnancy via her publicist after frenzied speculation. She told the TED conference in Vancouver that the photo was intended only for her personal records. "I have this thing where I've been checking my status and taking pictures every week to see how far along I'm getting," the 35-year-old said in an on-stage chat with journalist Gayle King. "I was just saving them (for myself)" said Williams. "I've been so good about it, but this was the one time it slipped." Williams said she had found out she was pregnant only two days before the Australian Open in January, which she went on to win for her 23rd grand slam title.

PARIS: US tennis star Serena Williams returned to the world number one spot in the latest WTA rankings released on Monday, days after announcing her pregnancy. The 35-year-old moved up one place during a week dedicated to Fed Cup action ahead of Germany's Angelique Kerber with Czech Karolina Pliskova holding third spot. Williams, one of the greatest players of all time, revealed Wednesday that she is expecting her first baby and will not play again this year. Kelly Bush Novak, Williams' publicist, said this week that she "looks forward to returning in 2018" and that was echoed by her coach Patrick Mouratoglou. Overtaking Australia's Margaret Court for the all-time record of 24 Grand Slam singles crownsWilliams is on 23 — is also "a determining factor" in her motivation to plough on, the Frenchman said. Williams is due to give birth in September.

But Trump, as ever, remained his own best, most committed publicist. Bankruptcy, he argued to the AP, is not a bad thing: “I dont think it’s a failure. It’s a success.” “You are what you think you are,” he wrote in his book called Think Big in 2007. “Oftentimes,” he added, “perception is more important than fact.” Trump’s casino company filed for bankruptcy again in 2009. “I never went bankrupt,” he said on ABC in 2011. “I’ve done an incredible job,” he told The Atlantic in 2013. And in 2015, of course, he announced he was running for president. “They all said, a lot of the pundits on television, ‘Well, Donald will never run, and one of the main reasons is he’s private and he’s probably not as successful as everybody thinks,’” he said in his speech at Trump Tower. “So I said to myself, you know, nobody’s ever going to know unless I run, because I’m really proud of my success.
