Grammy-winning songwriter LaShawn Daniels dies in car crash at 41

Grammy-winning songwriter LaShawn Daniels dies in car crash at 41 LaShawn Daniels, a Grammy-winning songwriter who penned hits for the likes of Beyoncé, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston, died in a car crash at 41.

He has long become one of those Chinese stars featured at international auctions. In other words, Chinese artists tend to create pieces of work where audiences have to read between the lines. But that's nothing new in the world of art.

If you had to consider the impact of cars on your town, first of all you would probably think of traffic jams & the difficulty Mrs Avitan has been allowed to leave hospital but is still having treatment for her (13) … . She said the robber broke in through the back door as her maid was letting herself out to go home.

Cole was one of four photographers who captured the scene, which became a defining image of the months-long clashes between China's military and protesters. Chinese authorities say that around 200 civilians and several dozen officers died in the Communist Party's bloody crackdown, though others have suggested the death toll was at least 10,000.

The image was captured on June 5, 1989, the day after armed troops were sent into central Beijing and were instructed to "use any means" to suppress pro-democracy protests who had been occupying the square for weeks. Soldiers fired indiscriminately at crowds, killing and injuring hundreds.

Around midday, a column of tanks drove down Cang'an Boulevard near Tiananmen Square. Video footage of the incident shows the military procession coming to a halt as a man, unidentified to this day, confronts the tanks in the middle of an empty street. The tanks try to avoid the man, who again blocks their path. Moments later, he climbed onto the hull of one of the tanks before he hops down and was dragged away by two unknown figures.

Cole was there on assignment for Newsweek. The Texas native told The New York Times, in a 2009 profile on photographers who captured the defining moment, that he and fellow photographer Stuart Franklin were on the balcony of the Beijing Hotel when they saw a line of at least 20 Armored Personnel Carriers clearing the streets before the showdown between the unknown man and the tanks took place.

"As the tanks neared the Beijing Hotel, the lone young man walked toward the middle of the avenue waving his jacket and shopping bag to stop the tanks. I kept shooting in anticipation of what I felt was his certain doom. But to my amazement, the lead tank stopped, then tried to move around him," he said.

Cole told the Times that after taking the photo, he was concerned that Chinese security forces may have been surveilling his activities, and he knew he needed to hide the roll of film that contained the one-in-a-lifetime shot.

‘Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ Actor John Wesley Dies at 72

‘Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ Actor John Wesley Dies at 72 John Wesley, the actor best-known for playing Dr. Hoover on “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air,” has died. He was 72. Wesley died from complications due to a long battle with multiple myeloma, his family confirmed to Variety. 

c. Rupert said he had been in London for a month, but he hadn't had time to visit the Tower. d. She replied she would come with me as soon as she was ready. g. He said that he had found an old Roman coin in the garden the previous day, and he was going to take it to the museum that afternoon.

Indeed, he has to fly a lot. And though he usually feels OK on board a plane, frequent flights are very tiresome. He mentioned that, before he was employed in tourism, he had wanted to be a photographer . ‘People still say I have a unique vision and the photos I take are somehow special.

He placed the tank film inside a plastic can and wrapped it in a plastic bag before attaching it to the flush chain inside the toilet's tank. Reluctantly, he placed his other film, including photographs he had taken of confrontations between the People's Liberation Army (PLA) and crowds, inside his camera, anticipating that the security would soon ransack his room and become suspicious if his camera contained no film.

"Within an hour, the PSB (Public Security Bureau) forced their way in and started searching the room," he said. "After about five minutes, they discovered the cameras and ripped the film out of each, seemingly satisfied that they had neutralized the coverage. They then forced me to sign a confession that I had been photographing during martial law and confiscated my passport."

When they left, he salvaged his film from the toilets, which he was able to develop and send over to Newsweek in time for his deadline. He said he regretted that the image alone had become so symbolic of the massacre, considering that there were so many other crucial moments captured on film, and so many journalists and photographers had put their lives on the line to cover the events.

Hurricane Dorian: Nobody knows how many lived - and died - at Ground Zero

Hurricane Dorian: Nobody knows how many lived - and died - at Ground Zero Our helicopter pilot banked sharply to the right so that I could see the ground beneath us, but I couldn't see any ground - just a mass of splintered wood and rubble, huge piles of it. That was our first glimpse of the shanty town on Abaco Island known as Mudd and Pigeon Peas. Home to thousands of unofficial residents mainly from Haiti, the community has been utterly and completely destroyed. There is nothing left. It is impossible to identify what were houses, what were roads. It has all been smashed to pieces by the thunderous power of Hurricane Dorian.

"We should not be lured into a simplistic, one-shot view of this amazingly complex event," he said.

The photograph, and other references to the brutal crackdown, are heavily censored in China to this day.
