In Grutter v. Bollinger, a case similar to the University of Michigan undergraduate lawsuit, a different judge drew an opposite conclusion, invalidating the law school's policy and ruling that "intellectual diversity bears no obvious or necessary relationship to racial diversity." But on May 14, 2002, the decision was reversed on appeal, ruling that the admissions policy was, in fact, constitutional.

    Nationality American Born on 27 March 1963 AD Sun Sign Aries Born in Knoxville Personality Type ESFP Grouping of People Native Americans, School Dropouts father Tony Tarantino mother Connie Zastoupil siblings Tanya Marie - Ronnajean Tarantino Murphy - Edward Tarantino, education Narbonne High School awards 1994 - Cannes Film Festival award for Palme d 1995 - Academy Award for Best Writing (screenplay) 1995 - BAFTA Award for Best Original Screenplay Either an individual grasps Quentin Tarantino’s films, or doesn’t. Those who do understand his movies, relate to his craft of making a daring fusion of thrillers, neo-noir, and non-linear films. Those who do not apprehend his films, pass them off as mere art-house cinema material. Nonetheless, Quentin Tarantino has grown to become one of the biggest names in Hollywood. Not only has he managed to gather a cult following for his films, he, unlike his previous generation of filmmakers, has understood in entirety, what ‘kind’ of films get the audiences flocking to cinema halls. From the famous ‘Pulp Fiction’ to ‘Inglorious Basterds’ and ‘Reservoir Dogs’ to ‘Natural Born Killers’, he has come a long way from working in a video rental store to one of the most legendary director-screenwriters of all time. Through most part of his life, he juggled as the multifaceted actor, director, screenwriter and producer and in the latter part of his life, decided to stick to doing what he knew best - direction and production. One would be able to spot a Quentin Tarantino classic from a mile away. His films are pregnant with dissimilar traditions, gangster violence, Blaxploitation themes and accented language. Trivia This famous American director and screenwriter considers Uma Thurman from the ‘Kill Bill’ fame as his ‘muse’. This famous American director of the ‘Django Unchained’ fame displays ‘Rio Bravo’ for prospective girlfriends as a test for their compatibility.

    I don't like the set up of the start menu and anything that has to do with. I like how Windows XP was, simple. Always having to search for what I want to do.

    1827 Composer Ludwig van Beethoven died at age 56 in Vienna, Austria. 1945 The battle of Iwo Jima ended; about 22,000 Japanese troops were killed or captured in the fighting and more than 4,500 U.S. troops were killed. 1971 East Pakistan proclaimed its independence, taking the name Bangladesh. 1979 In a ceremony at the White House, President Sadat of Egypt and Prime Minister Begin of Israel signed a peace treaty ending 30 years of war between the two countries. 2000 Vladimir Putin was elected president of Russia. *****************************************************************************************************DAILY EXTRA******************************************************** 1982.....................Groundbreaking ceremonies for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial took place in Washington, DC. Vietnam Veterans Memorial, war memorial in Washington, D.C., built 1982. Designed by the American sculptor and architect Maya Ying Lin, it is a sloping, V-shaped, 493-ft (150-m) wall of highly polished black granite that descends 10 feet (3.05 meters) below grade level at its vertex. Often called simply "The Wall," it is inscribed with the names of the more than 58,000 Americans killed or missing during the Vietnam War. The austere, abstract nature of Lin's design, which was selected after a nationwide competition, at first made it a controversial way of memorializing the war's casualties. In the years since its construction, however, the simple, evocative, and starkly dramatic wall has become a national shrine, drawing more annual visitors than the Washington Monument or the Lincoln Memorial. Two nearby sculptures also honor those who served in the war; one is of three soldiers by Frederick E. Hart (erected 1984), the other of three nurses and a wounded soldier by Glenna Goodacre (erected 1993).

Antigua's Prime Minister Lester Bird, has conceded defeat in a general election which took place on Tuesday. It marks the end of a political dynasty which has dominated Antigua and Barbuda since the 1950s. Excited islanders took to the streets as preliminary results showed a win for opposition leader Baldwin Spencer. Mr Spencer is a lifetime labour activist who has promised to end the corruption endemic in the eastern Caribbean nation. Corruption claims Mr Spencer had told the BBC's Caribbean Service that despite a series of scandals, successive Antigua Labour Party governments had done nothing to prevent corruption. The new prime minister repeated his pledge to stamp out corruption early on Wednesday, after Mr Bird conceded that preliminary results showed the opposition United Progressive Party had "won overwhelmingly". "Yesterday, the soldiers of the people's crusade delivered the only judgment fit for the Antigua Labor Party's crimes against the people of Antigua and Barbuda," he said. "Crimes committed against the people must be punished. We will let the chips fall the way they may." The outcome became clear after the opposition won three out of the first four seats in the lower house, known as the House of Representatives. The Electoral Commission is expected to issue the final results later on Wednesday. Long running reign Mr Bird denied his defeat was linked to allegations of corruption against him. In an earlier interview with the BBC's Caribbean Service Mr Bird said that his party had laid down strict anti-corruption guidelines, following a 2002 inquiry into the national medical insurance scheme that led to fraud charges against seven officials. Mr Bird said the people had just wanted a change. "Elections were not contested on issues but on the basis of a time for change," he said. The governing ALP had been seeking a seventh term in office. Politics in the twin-island nation have been dominated by the Bird family for more than half a century - the family has held the post of prime minister since independence from Britain in 1981. Mr Bird has been prime minister of Antigua and Barbuda since 1994, when he took over from his father Vere.
