Leo DiCaprio's The Great Gatsby Hits Theater's May 10th

Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the most gifted actors of this generation. He never makes a bad film! His film choices are stellar and now we will get to see him in the upcoming film "The Great Gatsby".

From the uniquely imaginative mind of writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann comes the new big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel The Great Gatsby. The filmmaker created his own distinctive visual interpretation of the classic story, bringing the period to life in a way that has never been seen before, in a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role.

The actor stole our hearts when he hit the small screen back in the 90's appearing on the tv shows Parenthood and Growing Pains. It didn't take the world long to realize this kid had something. He was incredible in the film What's Eating Gilbert Grape in 1993 and that is what launched his impressive film career. He went on to steal our hearts playing Jack Dawson in the film Titanic.

Up until 2009 (when the film was bumped from the top spot by Avatar) it was the highest grossing film of all time. Leo went on to give outstanding performances in every film he has ever been in! The Man in the Iron Mask, The Beach, Gangs of New York, Catch Me if You Can, The Aviator, The Departed, Blood Diamond, Revolutionary Road, Shutter Island and Inception.

His body of work is outstanding and he has been underated in the awards categories. He has been nominated for 3 Academy Awards and let's face it, he should have won at least one. He was nominated back in 1994 for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for "What's Eating Gilbert Grape". In 2005 he got the nod for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role for "The Aviator" and in 2006 was nominated in the same category for his performance in "Blood Diamond".

DiCaprio has been nominated for 9 Golden Globe Awards and took one home in 2005 for "The Aviator". In 2007, he was nominated twice in the category of Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for "Blood Diamond" and "The Departed". He was nominated for Django Unchained, J.Edgar, Revolutionary Road, Catch Me if You Can, Titanic and What's Eating Gilbert Grape.

"The Great Gatsby" follows would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles

We can't wait to see Leo's performance in Gatsby! The film hits theaters May 10th! View more latest audition updates from one source talent reviews

One source talent says 2013 model un l n refugees

For last fifty years, the United Nations has been faced with the issue of Palestinian refugees, and whether or not they should be able to return to their native land after settling in another country. These refugees have spread out all over the Middle East and Europe while the UN has been offering support through the UNRWA.

Some countries expressed their reluctance towards continuing this financial support and have been unwilling to take action against Middle Eastern countries that refuse to accept the refugees back after escaping turmoil. Others find it necessary to take action to allow the refugees’ return peacefully. On behalf of Lithuania, the continuation of assisting Palestinian refugees is in the best interest of the UN, as it is fair that they have the right to return to their home countries after escaping before.

Part of the United Nations’ mission is to provide freedom to those who are oppressed in their own countries. After the world wars, it was a necessary organization to provide freedom and prevent any other disastrous wars. Therefore, the Palestinian refugees must be granted freedom to move back to their home country because of the values we stand for. It is impossible to uphold the UN’s duties if we do not honor the freedom values that most underdeveloped countries yearn for. It is the UN’s occupation to monitor the affairs of the world to make certain that everyone is safe and free and if those countries, particularly in the Middle East, refuse to abide by our rules, then it is imperative we take action.

Lithuania fully supports peaceful passage back to their homelands and that the Middle Eastern countries refusal to accept them is intolerable. At the time of refugees escape, there may have been oppression going on and therefore it was impossible to succeed whilst living there, so they absolutely had to leave. Furthermore, if new government systems have been put in place to allow them to succeed, the refugees have the right to move back and rekindle their relationship with their home country.

Even without a new government, people must be allowed to return to their country for whatever personal reasons they have. Freedom is common issue throughout the world and for the Palestinians, it was practically nonexistent so they found that they had to escape. But no matter how much freedom one has, it is common to miss the aspects of one’s home country because of the tolerance of it for so many years. No matter the reasons, it is the UN’s job to provide safety to the Palestinian refugees as they cross back to Palestine and other Middle Eastern countries.

In the midst of this controversy, it is imperative that the UN reaches the correct decision with this issue. Lithuania stands for allowing the refugees safe return to their country and if others disagree, it might add even more conflict with those countries. The Middle Eastern countries that refuse to cooperate must succumb to the UN because, honestly, it is the best direction for the refugees, whom we already decided to protect.

One source talent an evolution of fashion

HARD fate has condemned human xx beings to enter this mortal sphere without any natural covering, like that possessed by the lower animals to protect them from the extremes of heat and cold.Had this been otherwise, countless myriads,for untold ages, would have escaped the tyrannical sway of the goddess Fashion, and the French proveib, il faut souffrir pour ctre belle, need never have been written.

The costume of our progenitors was chiefly remarkable for its extreme simplicity; and,as far as we can gather, no difference in design was made between the sexes. A few leaves entwined by the stalks, the feathers of birds, the bark of trees, or roughly dressed skins of animals were probably regarded by beaux and belles of the Adamite period as beautiful and appropriate adornments for the body, and were followed by garments made from plaited grass, which was doubtless the origin of weaving, a process which is nothing more than the mechanical plaiting of hair, wool, flax, &c. In many remote districts these primitive fashions still prevail, as, for example, in Madras, where, at an annual religious ceremony, it is customary for the low caste natives to exchange for a short period their usual attire for an apron of leaves. In the Brazilian forests the lecythis, or " shirt tree," is to be found, from which the people roll off the bark in short lengths, and, after making it pliable in water, cut two slits for the arm-holes and one for the neck, when their dress is complete and ready for use.

The North American Indian employs feathers for purposes of the toilet, and many African tribes are noted for their deftly-woven fabrics composed of grass and other vegetable fibres, while furs and skins are essential articles of dress in Northern latitudes. Perhaps the earliest specimen of a modiste's bill in existence has recently been found on a chalk tablet at Nippur, in Chaldea. The hieroglyphics record ninety-two robes and tunics : fourteen of these were perfumed with myrrh, aloes and cassia. The date of this curious antique cannot be less than two thousand eight hundred years before the Christian era. In ancient times it must be remembered that the principal seats of civilisation were Assyria and Egypt, and upon these countries Western nations depended for many of the luxuries of life.
