Aug 08, 2007 Entertainmentwise Ritz Paris
Hugh Grant And Jemima Khan had a dinner in The Ritz Paris
Last night a source close to the couple, who announced their split in February, insisted that they were “very much back on”. "They started seeing each other again in April,” the source tells the Daily Mail. “It was on the understanding that they would give it a proper shot and that if they could make it work, they would marry. "Hugh has proposed. But one of the reasons they have not made the announcement is because Jemima's mother, Lady Annabel, has told her daughter not to rush into anything.” The couple has done little to quell the rumours that their relationship is back on track. They enjoyed a clandestine dinner at The Ritz hotel in Paris last month and were together again last weekend, sharing an al fresco lunch at a fish restaurant on the Embankment in London.

I HAVE NEVER FORGOTTEN YOU: THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF SIMON WIESENTHAL
The almost unbearably moving story of Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal, I Have Never Forgotten You takes us from his shtetl childhood to his 90th birthday party at Vienna’s Hotel Imperial, where Hitler once kept a suite. In between, director Richard Trank (The Long Way Home) gives us a spare, unblinking portrayal of the Holocaust, in which Wiesenthal lost his mother and 88 other relatives; afterward, purposeless, he devoted the rest of his days to nosing out Nazis across the globe, from Eichmann in Argentina to Hermine Braunsteiner in Queens. Wiesenthal’s motive, he always insisted, was not revenge but justice. Celebrity narration (by Nicole Kidman) and deft filmmaking necessarily take a backseat here to the anger, grief, and incongruous good humor of the man himself.

Jul 07, 2007 Vail Daily The Fairmont Chateau, Whistler
WHISTLER, B.C. — He chased several bicycle riders this summer. He looked into windows. And finally, the cougar was seen on the fringes of the golf course at Whistler"s Fairmont Chateau, allegedly stalking golfers....
...With that, the cougar, also called a mountain lion, was killed. Chris Doyle, Whistler conservation officer, told Pique Newsmagazine that cougars rarely are interested in people. This one was. “We pretty much knew, given its past history, that it was going to be destroyed before it hurt somebody,” Doyle said. He said an autopsy would be conducted to determine whether an injury or illness caused the cougar’s aberrant behavior. If no permit was available for the pelt, the body was to be put in the forest to be picked over by scavengers.
