HMS Hood Explosion 1941 The battlecruiser HMS Hood was the pride of the British navy between the two world wars. It was actually obsolete by the time the Second World War started, but it was urgently needed despite its shortcomings. On May 24, 1941, in the Battle of the Denmark Strait, the Hood was engaged in an 11-minute skirmish with the German warships Prinz Eugen and Bismarck. A single 1700-pound armor-piercing shell from the Bismarck ripped into the Hood causing a giant fireball and a subsequent massive explosion. The Hood split into two sections and sank in just three minutes. About 150 minutes later, only three surviving British sailors from the Hood's crew of 1,415 were plucked from the cold Atlantic by the destroyer Electra: Ted Briggs, Robert Tilburn, and William Dundas. None was older than 20. The sinking of the Hood and the loss of more than 99.7 percent of its crew stunned the British public. The three survivors became reluctant celebrities and were always emotional when pressed to talk about that day in 1941. Dundas died in an automobile accident in 1965. Tilburn died in 1995. Briggs, the youngest of the three, died in 2008 at the age of 85. Briggs participated in a 2001 ceremony in which a memorial plaque was laid on the Hood's wreckage and debris field.

2010 Miss Australia Outfit Eighteen-year-old Jesinta Campbell, the reigning Miss Australia, intends to wear this...uh...interesting (yeah, that's the word!) costume in the upcoming 2010 Miss Universe pageant in Las Vegas. It features high-heeled Ugg boots, a brown one-piece swimming costume hand-painted by an Aboriginal artist, and a lamb's wool shrug. The ensemble is topped off by a voluminous flamenco-inspired rainbow skirt. The outfit has been heavily criticized by fashion designers and ordinary Australians alike. One newspaper's editorial denounced the garb as a 'travesty' and a 'national joke.' What do you think?

Britains Teen Parenthood Uproar In February 2009 this picture of new father Alfie Patten of Eastbourne, England alarmed the western world. The 13-year-old Patten (who looked to be about eight) was alleged to be the proud papa of a baby girl named Maisie, making Patten Great Britain's youngest father. The mother was Alfie's 15-year-old girlfriend Chantelle Stedman. Despite Patten's naivete (he didn't know what the term 'financial support' meant) the young couple decided to raise their daughter. The story created a media sensation in Britain. It was later learned that Alfie's older sister had a baby at age 13. Newspaper editorials cited the story as proof of declining morals and responsibility in the country. It also called into question the effectiveness of the UK's school system's costly sex education programs. Three months later DNA tests proved that another teenager, 14-year-old Tyler Barker, was the biological father. According to Stedman, Barker and Patten were just two of eight possible fathers.

Apollo Animation Screens I remember watching live the excitement unfold on our TVs of the moon landing. But there were times when there was no communication between the spacecraft and Houston; we had to stare at these animations and use our imaginations.

Muhammad Ali Convicted 1967 In 1967 Muhammad Ali was convicted of evading the draft and sentenced to five years in jail. Ali claimed his religious beliefs made him a conscientious objector. Legal appeals delayed the champ serving any jail time. Still, Ali's boxing license was suspended, putting his career on hold for three years--when he was beteween 25 and 28 years old, the time when most heavyweight fighters are in their prime. In 1970, the United States Supreme Court overturned the conviction in a unanimous ruling.

Barbara Billingsley of Leave it to Beaver fame dies CNN) -- Barbara Billingsley, who wore a classy pearl necklace and dispensed pearls of wisdom as America's quintessential mom on "Leave it to Beaver," has died at age 94, a family spokeswoman said Saturday. The actress passed away at 2 a.m. (5 a.m. ET) Saturday at her home in Santa Monica, California, after a long illness, spokeswoman Judy Twersky said. A private memorial is being planned. "America's favorite mother is now gone. I feel very fortunate to have been her 'son,' " actor Tony Dow, who played Wally Cleaver, said in a statement. "We were wonderful friends and I will miss her very much. My deepest sympathies to her sons, Glenn and Drew, and her entire family." Actor Jerry Mathers, who played Theodore "Beaver" Cleaver, spoke of Billingsley's talent during a 2000 appearance on CNN's "Larry King Live." "Barbara was always a true role model for me. She was a great actress," he said. "And in a lot of ways ... we kind of stifled her, because her true talent didn't really come out in 'Leave it Beaver.' She was like the straight man, but she has an awful lot of talent." The actress won a new legion of fans in a brief but memorable scene in the 1980 send-up movie "Airplane." "Oh, stewardess. I speak jive," Billingsley said in her role as a passenger attempting to comfort an ill man on the flight. From the moment its catchy theme song sounded in black-and-white TV sets of the 1950s, "Leave it to Beaver" enthralled Americans during a time of relative prosperity and world peace. Its characters represented middle-class white America. June Cleaver dutifully pecked her husband, Ward (played by the late Hugh Beaumont), when he came home to learn about the latest foibles -- nothing serious -- committed by Beaver and Wally. The parents would dispense moral advice to their sons. The boys' friends included Lumpy and the obsequious Eddie Haskell, who avoided trouble and often buttered up Ward and June. "That's a lovely dress you're wearing, Mrs. Cleaver," Eddie would typically say to Billingsley's character. Perhaps fittingly, "Leave it to Beaver" was canceled in 1963 on the eve of the JFK assassination, the Vietnam War and the tumult of the 1960s. Born December 22, 1915, in Los Angeles, Billingsley began her career as a model in New York City in 1936. She was under contract to MGM in 1945 before becoming a household name with the launch of "Leave it to Beaver" in 1957. Billingsley is survived by her two sons, Drew Billingsley of Granada Hills, California, and Glenn Billingsley of Phillips Ranch, California. Asked once to compare real-life families to TV families, Billingsley responded, "I just wish that we could have more families like those. Family is so important, and I just don't think we have enough people staying home with their babies and their children."
