Heads Up, Kids! A Wireless ATW80D Game!!

Thumbworks Brings 'Around The World In 80 Days' to BREW(TM)-Enabled Handsets

New Wireless Game Based on Highly Anticipated Film Makes its Debut at E3

LOS ANGELES, E3, May 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Thumbworks(TM), an emerging innovator in the world of wireless publishing, today announced the imminent release of Around the World in 80 Days, a wireless adventure game developed for QUALCOMM's BREW solution and based on the feature film starring Jackie Chan. The film, produced by Walden Media and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, opens in theatres nationwide on June 16. The wireless game is expected to become available through various carriers around that same time.
The Around the World in 80 Days game offers players the chance to assume the role of Passepartout (Chan's character) as he tries to help Phileas Fogg circle the globe in 80 days. Along the way, players will find themselves battling villains and escaping peril in four of the films key locations: Paris, India, China and New York. A player will have to use a combination of agility and martial arts to prevail.

"If you're a fan of Jackie Chan, you'll love this game," said Craig Holland, president of Thumbworks. "It's a fun microcosm of the film itself. Obviously, I don't want to give too much away, but suffice it to say that getting around the world in 80 days is easier said than done."

"We think the wireless version of Around the World in 80 Days is terrific fun -- a great complement to the adventurous spirit of the film," said Walden Media president and co-founder Micheal Flaherty. "We're excited to see that same spirit come through in Thumbworks' game." Source

Four Year Old "Jackie Chan"

Sampad Mahapatra

"I want to become a world champion and be like Jackie Chan"

Tuesday, May 11, 2004 (Bhubaneswar):

Four-year-old Varun Mohapatra of Bhubaneswar has become the youngest Indian blackbelt in karate and kickboxing. Varun is referred to as the Jackie Chan of the Pumas International Centre in Bhubaneswar.

"He started at the age of two and you will be surprised to know that he has completed all the black belt courses and has appeared at all the tests and gone systematically about it," says S S Harichandran, founder, Pumas International.

Varun has already won five golds and three silver medals at the subjunior national championships.

His trainer, who is the national coach in karate and kickboxing, says the boy has natural talent.

"He has the special ability to pick up things very fast. He only has to be explained once," says Pradyumna Behera, national karate coach.

Varun will be going to Nepal, Italy and Australia this year to participate in international level tournaments.

His parents say they are willing to make any sacrifice to see him become an international master.

Varun has already started a gruelling training schedule that involves at least three hours of rigorous practice everyday.

But Varun knows his mind, and for him, all the hard work is not a strain. "I want to become a world champion and be like Jackie Chan," says Varun.

Pumas International, which has 30 member organizations across the country and offers training to defence personnel, has produced over 200 blackbelts so far.

But there is little doubt about who their real gem is. Source (Thanks to Holly for the link.)

Jackie Disturbed by Cambodia's Land Mines

HONG KONG - Hong Kong action star Jackie Chan said on Monday he dreamt about digging up land mines for a whole week after returning from a trip to Cambodia to raise awareness about the issue there.

Chan spent three days in the country as a UN goodwill ambassador in late April, visiting land mine explosion victims and HIV/Aids patients.

Cambodia has South-east Asia's highest HIV infection rate at 2.6 per cent for 2002, according to the United Nations. The country's remote areas are still strewn with land mines and unexploded bombs left over from three decades of fighting.

Briefing the Hong Kong media about his trip on Monday, he said he also walked through an area once sown with land mines that has since been mostly - but not entirely - cleared.

Chan said he wasn't afraid, but that the visit as a whole shook him up so much that 'for a week whenever I had a dream I dreamt about digging land mines'.

'A child could go to buy milk and return without legs,' he said.

Chan also said he's looking at a script for a movie set in Cambodia and will 'very likely' start shooting there next year, but declined to give details.

The star of Hollywood movies Rush Hour, Rumble in the Bronx and Shanghai Noon, Chan will likely begin shooting the third film in the Rush Hour series later this year. -- AP

Building Awareness of How To Avoid Injury From Landmines

At Preah Daek elementary school just outside the city of Siem Reap, Mr. Chan and an enthusiastic crowd of several hundred children watched as a small group of schoolchildren presented short and amusing skits aimed at building awareness of landmines, and how to avoid being injured by them.

One of the skits featured a big boy beating up a much smaller boy, who unexpectedly ran up to Mr. Chan and begged for his assistance. Mr. Chan happily began acting in the skit, telling the smaller boy he could teach him martial arts, but that “martial arts are only to protect yourself, not for fighting.” He told the bigger boy that “I can teach you to be stronger, but when you are strong you must use your strength only to help those that are weaker, and not for fighting.” (Source: UNICEF)

Cuddly 48kg bears bring message of love to HK

By Dikky Sin

Photo: Hong Kong SCMP

Hong Kong is about to be invaded by more than 120 giant bears - but all in the name of warmth, peace, love and solidarity.
The two-metre, 48kg bears were created under the United Buddy Bears Project initiated by Klaus Herlitz and his wife in Germany in 2002 and are about to come to Hong Kong as part of a world tour.

The couple wanted to create a symbol representing understanding and tolerance among nations. A group of 120 artists from different countries was invited to design buddy bears which first went on display in Berlin in 2002. Hong Kong is the first stop of the Asian tour.

Local artists including Freeman Lau, Kan Tai-keung, Kwok Mang-ho and singer Gigi Leung Wing-kei, were also invited to design a bear incorporating the theme of love and peace.

Local artist Ng Yuen-wa designed clothing that features Chinese pavilions and a lotus pond.

"Chinese garden landscapes champion peace and tranquillity, bliss and harmony," she said.

Ms Ng, who teaches children drawing at her art school in Central, let more than 100 of her students paint the skin of the bear.
"I painted the head of the bear with my brother. It was fun," said Venus Chan Hui-shan, 11.

The exhibition would help foster public art in Hong Kong, said Eugene Li Wing-kam, senior leisure manager of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department.

The buddy bears will go on display in Victoria Park from May 16 until June 27.

A big thank you to Jose Escalante for contacting me about this special Tae Kwon Do program. Jose was very patient while I dealt with many photos and many misidentifications of who was IN those photos. My ignorance of Tae Kwon Do didn't help either. Jose's middle name should be "Patience." Thanks also to Holly Hecht who not only made the touching cartoon to accompany the story, but who also wrote the story! I sent Holly a mishmash of emails and notations and somehow she was able to come up with a great piece. Thanks so much!
