But the tale of the tape made it clear to the owner of the parked car just who it was who scraped up her silver Mercedes-Benz.

Kim Robard-Rifkin, 59, told the entertainment Web site CelebTV.com on Wednesday that nobody from Spears’ camp had contacted her about the damaged car.

“It’s sad because I was really hoping she’d step up and be a mensch, be a human being,” Robard-Rifkin said. “It was simply like my car didn’t matter to her, my inconvenience didn’t matter to her.”

Chinese leaders believe the 75-year-old monk, who fled Tibet when the region was invaded by China in 1959, is scheming to attain political independence for his homeland. Tibet’s political status is an internal matter for China, authorities here argue, leaving no place for input from Washington. President Obama is believed to have declined a meeting with the Dalai Lama last October, to avoid tense relations with his Chinese counterparts before his first visit to China in November. In Beijing, China’s leaders reportedly urged the President to refrain from ever meeting with their Tibetan rival. Since that trip, relations between Beijing and Washington have gone steadily downhill. The long list of disputes kicked off in earnest at the Copenhagen climate change summit, when China and the U.S., the world’s carbon emissions giants, failed to find common ground. China then refused the Obama administration’s request to revalue its currency. That was followed by ongoing trade disputes on items ranging from steel to chicken. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton then publically backed Google in its stand against the Chinese government’s internet censorship. Beijing was incensed when the U.S. sold $6.4 billion of weaponry to Taiwan, a disputed region that China claims as its own. The White House tried to downplay Thursday’s closed-door meeting, choosing to release just a single photo of the event. But, the fact that the two men met at all was enough to anger Beijing. Nonetheless, there might never be a good time for a U.S. president to meet the Dalai Lama. Since George Bush Sr. was in office, each successive American leader has met the Tibetan, and each time, Chinese authorities have issued loud objections in response. So far, Sino-U.S. ties have weathered the inevitable storm that follows, and it is unlikely China will do much more to protest the Dalai Lama’s latest visit. That does not mean, however, that the issue has been resolved. For weeks, China’s state-controlled media have echoed the unhappiness of the government. “What would the U.S. government feel and do if Chinese leaders meet someone who has been carrying out activities for the independence of one of its states, say Alaska?” writes China Daily op-ed columnist Zhu Yuan, adding that President Obama “is giving the impression that he told lies or at least did not speak from the bottom of his heart when promising to promote Sino-U.S. relations.”

Another Britney Bang

Paparazzi took pictures and videos of a puppy-toting Britney Spears steering her car into another one as she tried to turn into a spot in a Studio City parking lot. Then assessing the damage to her own car only. Then heading off to shop.

But the tale of the tape made it clear to the owner of the parked car just who it was who scraped up her silver Mercedes-Benz.

Kim Robard-Rifkin, 59, 부산출장샵 told the entertainment Web site CelebTV.com on Wednesday that nobody from Spears’ camp had contacted her about the damaged car.

“It’s sad because I was really hoping she’d step up and be a mensch, be a human being,” Robard-Rifkin said. “It was simply like my car didn’t matter to her, my inconvenience didn’t matter to her.”

Robard-Rifkin, a registered nurse, said she was “sort of amused and sort of shocked” when she learned it was Spears who hit her car, and figured she would hear from the embattled entertainer.

“There were obviously a lot of paparazzi there, and what kind of person wouldn’t realize that this (would) be on TV and she had to be responsible and contact me,” she said.

“I’m not asking for money. I’m not asking for a new car. … I simply want my car fixed, the same as I would fix somebody’s car if I had done that.”

Robard-Rifkin filed a police report on Thursday.

No breakthroughs were announced and China has made no firm indications of offering concessions to the Tibetan side

인천출장마사지-후불출장안마 Vvip미출장안마cnfwkddksakVice Foreign Minister Cui Tiankai summoned U.S. ambassador to China Jon Huntsman to lodge a “solemn representation” over Thursday’s meeting at the White House, the ministry said in a statement posted on its Web site.

“The behavior of the U.S. side seriously interferes in China’s internal politics and seriously hurts the national feelings of the Chinese people,” the statement said, quoting spokesman Ma Zhaoxu.

The meeting was seen as another test of rocky ties between Beijing and Washington, strained in recent weeks by issues from Taiwan arms sales to cyber spying allegations.

However, the language of the protest issued by the Foreign Ministry was relatively constrained, a reflection of the White House’s low-key treatment of the meeting with the exiled Tibetan leader and Beijing’s own desire to maintain healthy China-U.S. relations. The meeting was in the White House’s Map Room, a lower-profile venue than the Oval Office.

In his statement, Ma expressed “strong dissatisfaction and resolute opposition” to the meeting.

“The Chinese side demands that the U.S. side seriously consider China’s stance, immediately adopt measures to wipe out the baneful impact and stop conniving and supporting anti-China separatist forces that seek Tibet independence,” said the statement, posted on the ministry’s Web site.

China accuses the Dalai Lama of seeking to remove Tibet from Chinese rule and objects strongly to all contact between him and overseas leaders.

The White House said Obama told the Dalai Lama that he backs the preservation of Tibet’s culture and supports human rights for its people. He also gave encouragement to the Dalai Lama’s request for talks with the Chinese government.

While the meeting was long expected, the administration had taken considerable measures to limit its impact on China-U.S. relations. Obama had declined to see the Dalai Lama during his Washington stay in October because it would have come before the president’s November China visit.

There was no welcome fanfare on Thursday and Obama made no public comments, issuing only a brief statement through his spokesman. The White House banned reporters and TV cameras, distributing a single photo of the two leaders.

Meetings between the Dalai Lama and U.S. presidents became standard fare under former President George H.W. Bush nearly 20 years ago. But the choreography is always delicate and closely watched because of China’s sensitivities.

The meeting came at a time when U.S.-Chinese relations are particularly raw, with China warning of retaliation over the Obama administration’s approval of a multibillion-dollar arms sale to Taiwan, the self-governing democratic island that Beijing claims as its own, has raised tensions.

Disputes over trade, exchange rates, and human rights have also ratcheted up tensions, although Beijing has recently seemed to indicate through the official media that it doesn’t want to see a major crisis.

After the White House meeting, the Dalai Lama chided Beijing for 경기도출장샵 taking a “childish” and “limited” approach to Tibet’s quest for greater autonomy and said Obama had been “very much supportive” of his views on human rights and the concerns of the Tibetan people.

His envoy, Lodi Gyari, said Tibetans feeling marginalized by China would get encouragement from the session.

The 75-year-old Nobel Peace Prize winner denies China’s accusations of separatism, saying he wants only for Tibetans to have a greater say over their affairs while remaining under Chinese rule. The Dalai Lama fled Tibet in 1959 and has since led a self-declared government-in-exiled in India.

China claims Tibet has been part of its territory for centuries and sent communist forces to occupy the Himalayan region in 1950. Many Tibetans say they were functionally independent for most of their history and accuse China of undermining Tibet’s unique Buddhist culture and flooding the region with Chinese migrants.

Sporadic contacts between the Dalai Lama’s envoys and Chinese officials were renewed last month after a break of more than a year. No breakthroughs were announced and China has made no firm indications of offering concessions to the Tibetan side.

Could cholesterol-fighting statins fend off Alzheimer’s disease?

A new, large study suggests that if they do have that power, it may depend on the specific statin, and the gender and race or ethnicity of the person taking it.

For example, black men appeared to gain no benefit from taking any statin, while white women may lower their risk regardless of which statin they take, the researchers said.

The findings don’t prove that statins reduce the chances of developing Alzheimer’s. And if they do shrink the risk, the effect seems to be small.

Still, “those with high exposure to statins had a reduced risk of [Alzheimer’s disease] compared to those with low exposure. And it varied by type of statin and for men, women and for different racial and ethnic individuals,” said study author Julie Zissimopoulos. She is associate director of the Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.

Previous research has suggested that high cholesterol in later life seems to boost the risk of Alzheimer’s disease while statins reduce it, said Dr. Gail Li. She is an associate professor in the department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the University of Washington in Seattle.

But Li, who was not involved with the new study, 경기도출장샵 added that statins don’t seem to help patients who already have Alzheimer’s.

The new study aimed to understand how specific groups of people might be affected by the therapy.

The researchers tracked almost 400,000 statin users, all aged 65 or older, who took the medications between 2006 and 2013.

In the study, Zissimopoulos said, “We examine individuals who have been taking statins consistently for at least two years, between the years 2006 and 2008, and follow them for another five years to examine onset of Alzheimer’s. We compare them to groups of individuals with low exposure that either took statins less consistently between 2006 and 2008, or started them later — after 2008.”

Overall, the researchers linked high use of statins to a 15 percent lower risk of Alzheimer’s in women and a 12 percent lower risk in men compared to those who had low use.

Those who took simvastatin (Zocor) had 10 percent to 23 percent lower risk, depending on their gender and race. However, the researchers saw no benefit for black men.

Among those who used atorvastatin (Lipitor) the most, white men and black men had no apparent benefit, while the risk of Alzheimer’s was 16 percent to 39 percent lower for white women, black women and Hispanics.

Only white women appeared to gain a benefit from high usage of pravastatin (Pravachol) and rosuvastatin (Crestor): They had about an 18 percent lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, the findings showed.

According to Zissimopoulos, the lifetime risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease is between 9 percent and 17 percent at the age of 65.

For her part, Li is skeptical of the new findings. She eyed the results with caution, saying there may be too few people in some of the ethnic groups to come up with statistically reliable conclusions.

Dr. Benjamin Wolozin, a professor with the departments of pharmacology and neurology at Boston University School of Medicine, said genetics may explain the differences between the groups. As to why statins may reduce Alzheimer’s risk, he said it may have something to do with the power of the drugs to promote good blood flow to the brain.

An expert in aging research, Dr. Eric Larson, executive director of the Group Health Research Institute in Seattle, had another theory: “Some of the variation could be based on patterns of care — how drugs are prescribed to different types of patients and also the baseline levels of vascular risk. Black men are likely to have more than just high cholesterol levels — [they may have] other conditions that increase risk and aren’t affected by statins.”

What should people who use statins do?

Larson said, “People who have high levels of cholesterol and other conditions that predispose them to vascular diseases should definitely consider taking statins for their benefit in general, and can also feel like they are doing something for their risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s.”

But, he added, “I would not use the results of this study to guide choices of statins. Things like tolerability, cost and so forth may be more important for many people.”

The study was published online Dec. 12 in the journal JAMA Neurology.

Friday’s fireworks, however, came early in the morning, when the Chinese government issued an angry statement deriding President Obama for spending an hour with Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, 부산출장마사지 the Dalai Lama.

President Obama “grossly violated the norms governing international relations,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu wrote. The United States must stop interfering in China’s internal affairs and make concrete actions to maintain healthy and steady growth of China-U.S. relations, he added.

She was very good, very professional,” Kingsley told Access Hollywood in an interview airing Wednesday night

Kingsley had nothing but praise for the billionaire twin.

“There is a very passionate scene in the film which we filmed last week. It went extremely well and she was very focused. She was very good, very professional,” Kingsley told Access Hollywood in an interview airing Wednesday night. “She was quite wonderful.”

Although the actor 대구출장샵 realizes there might be some controversy over the 40-year age difference between the on-screen smoochers, he says it’s much ado about nothing.

“She is this great free spirit, you know, she is equally seducing, so it is a level playing field,” Kingsley said. “[It’s] for a few seconds and then we disappear and we never see each other in the movie. But she is a trigger into my quest for happiness.”

“I would say the two of them, Josh and Mary-Kate, are great role models for their contemporaries,” he said. There are so many kids at their age tragically crashing and burning, and not these two. They are so hard-working, so focused and so good to be with. They are wonderful people to be with.”

The film, currently in production, also stars Famke Janssen, Olivia Thirlby and Method Man.

Olsen is also a guest star on Season 3 of the off-beat Showtime comedy “Weeds,” which premiered this week.
