Ronnie Wood is reportedly set to marry his 20-year-old lover.

The 61-year-old Rolling Stones guitarist - who sparked huge controversy last year after leaving his wife of 23 years to be with Ekaterina Ivanova - has told friends he has found "a new lease of life" since dating the Russian waitress.

Before he can marry Ekaterina, Ronnie must divorce estranged wife Jo and he is determined to protect his £60 million fortune.

A friend of Jo's said: "She is devastated and now knows there is no turning back in their marriage.

"Ronnie wants the divorce to be over as soon as possible so he can marry Kat.

"Jo always believed this was just a silly fling that would soon blow over.

She worked really hard to remain on good terms with Ronnie. But instead of sorting things out he wants to fight out any claims in court."

Skype founders want company back.
Technology and internet startups often seem to come out of nowhere with meteoric success only to be snapped up by larger companies looking to make a profit from new technology. This is the circle of life online and in the technology world.

Back in 2005, eBay purchased Skype for about $1.7 billion with then CEO Meg Whitman saying that eBay believed Skype would find an audience with eBay buyers and sellers. This failed to happen and current eBay CEO John Donahoe has said that Skype has no synergies with eBay reports eWeek.

Donahoe said that eBay would do what was right for Skype and eBay -- many analysts took that statement as an indication that eBay may be interested in selling Skype. While eBay hasn’t officially stated that it is t ... Read more »

A major charitable foundation in Los Angeles has said that jailed Wall Street money manager Bernard Madoff swindled it out of US$18 million. The Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles reported that the foundation invested the money from a common investment pool with Madoff starting in 2004. Foundation president Marvin Schotland told AP that the loss represented less than 3 per cent of the group's total assets, which totaled about US$ 670 million at the end of 2008. The group is one of Los Angeles' 10 largest foundations.

Madoff is in jail pending sentencing for stealing billions of dollars from investors in what could be the biggest scam in Wall Street history. Foundation spokeswoman Lynn Fireside says the foundation would be able to recover at least US$ 500,000 of the lost money after Madoff's assets are liquidated.

Where did the Madoff money go?  Said to be as much as $50 billion, the key question about this huge scam remains unanswered.  After examining 7,000 boxes containing the documents of Bernard Madoff's "investment" company, a U.S. bankruptcy court meeting revealed that there was "no evidence" that any of the money had been re-invested in 13 years, the BBC reported on February 21, 2009: ...

A Brazilian Archbishop has accused Jews of exaggerating their suffering during the Holocaust.

Archbishop Dadeus Grings of Porto Alegre in Rio Grande de Sul said in a magazine interview: “The Jews talk about six million people killed. But how many Catholics were victims of the Holocaust? There were 22 million in all…the biggest victims were the gypsies because they were exterminated. And [the Jews] don’t mention this.”

Veteran Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal said in 1984 that the gypsies were murdered in a proportion similar to Jews.

The archbishop’s comments mean further embarrassment for the Catholic church following Pope Benedict XVI’s rehabilitation of Holocaust denier Bishop Richard Williams.

A cyber spy network based mainly in China hacked into classified documents from government and private organizations in 103 countries, including the computers of the Dalai Lama and Tibetan exiles, Canadian researchers said Saturday. The work of the Information Warfare Monitor initially focused on allegations of Chinese cyber espionage against the Tibetan community in exile, and eventually led to a much wider network of compromised machines, the Internet-based research group said. "We uncovered real-time evidence of malware that had penetrated Tibetan computer systems, extracting sensitive documents from the private office of the Dalai Lama," investigator Greg Walton said. The research group said that while it's analysis points to China as the main source of the network, ... Read more »

NEW YORK - Natasha Richardson died from bleeding in her skull caused by the fall she took on a ski slope, an autopsy found Thursday.

The medical examiner ruled her death an accident, and doctors said she might have survived had she received immediate treatment. However, nearly four hours elapsed between her lethal fall at her admission to a hospital

The Tony-winning actress suffered from an epidural hematoma, which causes bleeding between the skull and the brain's covering, said Ellen Borakove, a spokeswoman for the New York City medical examiner's office.

Such bleeding is often caused by a skull fracture, and it can quickly produce a blood clot that puts pressure on the brain. That pressure can force the ... Read more »

Israel used Operation Cast Lead to help perfect the "Iron Dome" rocket interception system, defense officials said Monday.
Israeli weapons-development teams were posted outside Gaza to track the hundreds of rockets fired by terrorists during the three-week offensive against Hamas.

The data will be used to assist in the construction of the system, which is currently under development, the officials said.

They spoke on condition of anonymity because the system's details remain classified. The Iron Dome, designed to protect Israeli towns from rocket fire, is set to be operational in 2010.

Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey collapsed last evening while delivering a speech to a prominent legal group and was rushed to George Washington University Hospital.

Mukasey remained at the hospital overnight for observation but a Justice Department spokesman said Mukasey had strong vital signs and was "in good spirits" after the incident, which occurred at an annual Federalist Society gathering.

President Bush spoke with Mukasey by telephone just before 7 this morning, according to a statement issued by White House spokeswoman Dana Perino. The statement said Mukasey "sounded well" and "is getting excellent care."

A person who attended the black-tie dinner at the Marriott Wardman Park hotel in Woodley Park said Mukasey was visibly shaking and perhaps slurring his words before he fell to the floor. Video footage showed a tuxedo-clad Mukasey, 67 ... Read more »

CHICAGO (Reuters) - President-elect Barack Obama moved closer to filling a key spot in his cabinet on Tuesday as his transition team plotted a careful course to shaping the next U.S. administration.

A Democratic source said a conditional offer for the post of attorney general had been made to former Clinton administration official Eric Holder, making him the automatic front-runner for the nation's top law enforcement position.

In keeping with his decision to maintain a low profile during the transition period before he takes office on January 20, Obama spent most of the day in private meetings at a federal office building near his home in Chicago.
