Infected bat 'ran into' hand of B.C. man who later died from rabies: health officer

Infected bat 'ran into' hand of B.C. man who later died from rabies: health officer A 21-year-old man who died from rabies after coming into contact with an infected bat on Vancouver Island this spring had a brush with the nocturnal mammal in an "unusual" daytime encounter, health officials said Tuesday. The man, whose identity has not been released, was spending time outdoors in mid-May when the bat "essentially ran into his hand," said provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry. Henry said the man may not have realized the gravity of the collision. "As is often the case, when you come in contact with a bat, you may not actually see a scratch or bite," Henry said Tuesday.

Arthur Herbert Fonzarelli (better known as "Fonzie" or " The Fonz ") is a fictional character played by Henry Winkler in the American sitcom Happy Days (1974–1984).

If there’s one good thing in this benighted world, it’s that renowned nice guy Henry Winkler is a big star once again. (Not 56 percent of the viewing audience big, but there were only three networks the first time around.) On Tuesday’s show, Jimmy Kimmel brought out some vintage Happy Days memorabilia from Winkler’s long-ago first foray into TV stardom, with the clearly tickled Winkler happily debunking some of the studio-manufactured hobbies chronicled in an all-Fonzie fan magazine. (The Fonz may have liked making birdhouses on the show, but, sadly, Winkler himself was not, as the magazine assured fans with an elaborate potter’s wheel photo layout, an avid ceramics enthusiast.) With Happy Days childhood fan Kimmel quizzing Winkler on the Fonz’s most infamous, lexicon-spawning stunt, the legendarily affable Winkler happily explained that, yes, he did do all of his own waterskiing (apart from the actual jump over a very real, penned-up shark), thanks to his father’s prodding that he tell producer Garry Marshall that waterskiing was an actual skill that could be added to Arthur Fonzarelli’s coolness quiver. (Winkler, ever the mensch, even donned a wetsuit later in the show to take part in Kimmel’s ongoing bellyflop tournament.)

Mandy Moore took a SoulCycle class to delay Emmys 'disappointment'

Mandy Moore took a SoulCycle class to delay Emmys 'disappointment' Mandy Moore was so convinced she'd miss out on another Emmys nod on Tuesday morning (16Jul19) she booked a SoulCycle class to delay the disappointment. The This Is Us star was just hoping the show would get a few mentions and was shocked when she got home and learned she had landed her very first career nomination. The 35 year old is up for an Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series award for her role as Rebecca Pearson in the drama. "I was just like, 'I'm going to go and just take a class and have my fingers crossed the show gets recognised, but I'll just find out when I get out'," she tells Entertainment Tonight.

Henry Beauregard Winkler , also fondly known as Arthur Fonzarelli — or the Fonz — has passed away quietly at his home in Queens. A lifelong member of the NRA and avid Trump Supporter, Winkler spent the bulk of his life alone, reading, making movies, and creating a relationship with God some would

Henry Winkler , an award-winning actor, producer, director is also a childrens author of the Hank Zipzer children's book series. In the world of special Winkler said he decided he would be different from his own parents and he made a point of constantly praising his kids and listening to what they had to say.

And as delighted as Winkler is at his Emmy-winning late-career renaissance as Barry’s self-obsessed acting teacher Gene Cousineau, he did tell Kimmel about one time that being the biggest star on television gave him the power to do some real good. Explaining how, on his Happy Days rehearsal hotline phone (which is something the Fonz would definitely have), he one day received a call from a sheepish Illinois state trooper with an active jumper on the other line, Winkler told Kimmel that he channeled some of his character’s storied cool to actually talk to the 17-year-old aspiring actor, who claimed he was going to jump unless he could talk to his acting idol. “I don’t know where I got the nerve to take the phone,” said Winkler, although the effectively gruff tough love tack he described taking with the troubled young man had more than a little of the the Fonz to it. And while handing the fate of a suicidal person to a TV star seems like questionable police procedure, at least Winkler wouldn’t have been channeling the self-importantly oblivious Gene Cousineau back in the 70s. Or, even/arguably worse, Barry Zuckerkorn.
