Today’s Holiday: Feast of St. Paul’s Shipwreck


Today’s Holiday:
Feast of St. Paul’s Shipwreck

This feast is a commemoration in Malta of the shipwreck of St. Paul on the island in 60 CE, an event told about in the New Testament. When storms drove the ship aground, Paul was welcomed by the “barbarous people” (meaning they were not Greco-Romans). According to legend, he got their attention when a snake bit him on the hand but did him no harm, and he then healed people of diseases. Paul is the patron saint of Malta and snakebite victims. The day is a public holiday, and is observed with family gatherings and religious ceremonies and processions. More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Today’s Birthday: Bertolt Brecht (1898)


Today’s Birthday:
Bertolt Brecht (1898)

Brecht was a German playwright and poet whose brilliant wit and revolutionary theatrical experiments made him a vital and controversial force in modern drama. In 1928, he displayed his hostility toward capitalism as well as his bittersweet compassion for humanity in The Threepenny Opera. With the rise of the Nazis in 1933, he went into exile, first in Scandinavia and then in the US. One of Brecht’s most important theories was the concept of Verfremdungseffekt, which means what?

This Day in History: Lord Darnley, Second Husband of Mary Queen of Scots, Found Murdered (1567)


This Day in History:
Lord Darnley, Second Husband of Mary Queen of Scots, Found Murdered (1567)

Though Darnley’s murder remains an unsolved mystery, one certainty is that at the time of his death, he was not well-liked. In line for the English throne, he infuriated Queen Elizabeth by marrying Mary Queen of Scots. He then alienated Mary by accusing her of infidelity and stabbing her secretary to death in front of her. Mary distanced herself from him, and shortly thereafter, his house exploded. He was found dead—but not from the blast. How was he killed, and who is suspected of his murder? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Article of the Day: William II of England


Article of the Day:
William II of England

William Rufus was a Norman king of England who disliked the English and their culture and was, in turn, despised by his subjects and in conflict with the church. He inherited the throne in 1087 from his father, who had conquered England, and he ruled until 1100, subjugating Scotland and Wales. He never married or produced offspring, and his younger brother succeeded him after he was killed by a misfired arrow. Why do some question whether his death was really an accident?

Early lifeEdit

Bishil was born in Pasadena, California[1][3] and is the youngest of three children. Her American mother is of Mexican and Caucasian descent and her father is of Indian descent.[4][5]In 1991, when Bishil was three years old, the family moved to Saudi Arabiaand then to Bahrain,[5][3][6] where she and her brother attended British and American schools.

The September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks prompted her family to return to the United States.[5] They moved to a Mormon community in San Diego where she attended a regular public high school for a week.[5][6] Because of the post-9/11 tension in the U.S., her schoolmates did not welcome her kindly.[5] She stated that the return was not easy: “I hated it. I was called a whore on the first day of school, and somebody said they thought my dad funded terrorism. I just knew that nobody was ever going to want to be my friend there. I had panic attacks the first year of my life here.”[6] The family later moved to Arcadia, where her mother home schooled her.[5][6]She took classes at Citrus College in Glendora, California.[4]

CareerEdit

Bishil started acting lessons at age 14. Within a year, she was signed to a contract with a manager and agency. Bishil’s first role was on the short-lived Nickelodeon television show Just for Kicks, followed by appearances in several other children’s shows.

Bishil’s breakthrough performance[7]came as the lead in Alan Ball‘s film, Towelhead in 2007, an adaptation of the novel of the same name. Slatecritic Dana Stevens said, “Her performance is the truest thing in a movie that, for all its good intentions, feels thoroughly phony and mildly embarrassing, like an extended PSAabout inappropriate touching.”[8] Bob Strauss, who writes for several Los Angeles newspapers, states that Bishil, “…is one of the finest natural film actresses to emerge in years.”[9]Gary Goldstein in a September 12 Los Angeles Times review of the movie Towelhead, stated that, “…newcomer Summer Bishil turns in a gutsy, quietly riveting performance as Jasira.”[10]

In 2009, she filmed Wayne Kramer‘s project, Crossing Over, starring Harrison Ford, Ray Liotta and Ashley Judd,[11] a portrayal that received some favorable notice from Associated Presss Jay Reiner.[12] She was chosen to portray Azula in M. Night Shyamalan‘s 2010 film The Last Airbender, and was planned to be the focus of the planned but never-produced sequel.[13]

In 2013, Bishil was cast as Samira one of the lead roles on the short-lived ABC drama Lucky 7.[14][15] In late 2014, Bishil was cast in the role of Margo Hanson in the Syfy drama series The Magicians,[16] which is in its fifth season.
