Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, released on 16 July 2005, is the sixth of seven novels from British author J. K. Rowling’s popular Harry Potter series. Set during Harry Potter’s sixth year at Hogwarts, the novel explores Lord Voldemort’s past, and Harry’s preparations for the final battle amidst emerging romantic relationships and the emotional confusions and conflict resolutions characteristic of mid-adolescence.

Plot

As Lord Voldemort and the Death Eaters commit crimes in both the magical and Muggle worlds, Minister of Magic Cornelius Fudge is replaced by Rufus Scrimgeour. Professor Snape, appearing to have rejoined the Death Eaters and Lord Voldemort, is visited by Narcissa Malfoy and Bellatrix Lestrange. A terrified Narcissa tells Snape that her son, Draco, has received orders from Lord Voldemort, and asks Snape to make an Unbreakable Vow to protect her son and complete the task for him should he fail.

Harry Potter accompanies Albus Dumbledore on a trip to persuade retired Hogwarts professor Horace Slughorn to return to teaching. Harry notices one of Dumbledore’s hands is withered and burnt black, and he is wearing a ring with a distinctively-marked stone. Harry spends the remaining holiday at The Burrow with the Weasleys and Hermione, where they receive their O.W.L. results. Harry and Ron must take N.E.W.T. level Potions to become Aurors, but their O.W.L.s in the subject are too low to enrol in Snape’s Potions class.

At Hogwarts, Snape is named the new Defence Against the Dark Arts instructor, with Slughorn becoming the Potions teacher. Slughorn’s requirements are lower than Snape’s, so Harry and Ron are able to enrol in his class, but do not have textbooks. Slughorn loans them copies; Harry’s book has notes and corrections that yield better results than the textbook’s instructions, winning him a vial of Felix Felicis, a potion that infuses luck, on his first day in class. His book is inscribed as having previously belonged to the “Half-Blood Prince”.

Ron’s brother, Bill Weasley, is engaged to Fleur Delacour, of whom his mother disapproves. Auror Nymphadora Tonks makes comments suggesting she may harbour feelings for her now-slain cousin Sirius Black. However, it is eventually revealed that she has fallen for Remus Lupin, and, despite his protests that he is unworthy of her, they marry over the summer.

Ron and Ginny join the Gryffindor Quidditch team, which Harry now captains, as Keeper and Chaser respectively. This puts Harry in frequent contact with Ginny, who for a long time harbored an attraction to him. Now, however, she is dating Dean Thomas— unexpectedly making Harry jealous. This is exacerbated when Dean also gains membership on the team, replacing original member Katie Bell who is almost killed while attempting to deliver a cursed necklace under the influence of the Imperius Curse. Ron is displeased with his younger sister dating anybody, forcing Harry to ignore his attraction. After an argument with Ginny in which Ron’s dating inexperience is made clear, Ron takes up with Lavender Brown, creating a divide between him and Hermione. This rift is only mended when he accidentally consumes a love potion attracting him to Romilda Vane, and then poisoned mead which almost kills him.

Film

The film based on the sixth book was originally scheduled to be released on 21 November 2008, but was pushed back to 15 July 2009.The screenplay was written by Steve Kloves, and David Yates directed the film.The film is 153 minutes long, making it the third longest Harry Potter film of the series.

Paris Hilton’s wisdom immortalised in book of quotations

Paris Hilton’s wisdom immortalised in book of quotations

Paris Whitney Hilton (born February 17, 1981) is an American socialite, heiress, media personality, model, singer, author, fashion designer and actress.

Hilton is known for her appearance in a sex tape in 2003, her appearance on the television series The Simple Life, her several minor film roles (most notably her role in the horror film House of Wax in 2005), her 2004 tongue-in-cheek autobiography, her 2006 music album Paris, and her work in modeling. As a result of several legal incidents, Hilton also served a widely publicized sentence in a Los Angeles County jail in 2007.

Personal life

Hilton was engaged to fashion model Jason Shaw from mid-2002 to early 2003. In 2003-2004 she had a relationship with singer Nick Carter. Later she was engaged to Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis, from May 29, 2005 to November 2005. Thereafter, she began dating another Greek shipping heir, Stavros Niarchos III, before breaking up in May 2006. In early 2008, she was spotted with Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden and in May, Hilton announced her intention to marry Madden during interview with television talk-show host David Letterman. The two broke up in November 2008, and “remain very good friends”. She began dating The Hills star Doug Reinhardt in February 2009; Hilton has also referred to her intention to marry Reinhardt, saying “He’s gonna be my husband.” The couple broke up in June 2009, only to be seen back together again in August of the same year.

Hilton told Live with Regis and Kelly: “One-night stands are not for me. I think it’s gross when you just give it up. Guys want you more, if you don’t just hand it to them on a platter.”

Hilton loves small dogs, and lives with a Yorkshire Terrier and a female Chihuahua named Tinkerbell. Paris Hilton is frequently seen carrying Tinkerbell (dubbed an “accessory dog”) at social events and functions, and in all five seasons of television reality show The Simple Life. In 2004, Tinkerbell “authored” a memoir, The Tinkerbell Hilton Diaries. On August 12, 2004, Tinkerbell went missing after Hilton’s apartment was burgled, and a $5,000 reward was offered for her safe return. She was found six days later. By December 1, 2004, Tinkerbell was again spotted with Paris Hilton at various events. Hilton has also purchased a male Chihuahua on July 25, 2007 from Pets of Bel Air in Los Angeles. Hilton’s love for man’s best friend led her to create an apparel line for dogs called Little Lily by Paris Hilton, with some of the proceeds going to benefit animal rescue. “I have 17 dogs and I like to dress them, so I started designing this clothing line and it’s really cute, like dresses and jeans — everything you can imagine for humans, but for dogs,” she said in an interview during Super Bowl XLII festivities. Hilton’s love for her dogs led to the rumor that she wanted to be frozen with them at the Cryonics Institute, but Hilton denied the rumor on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

A homemade sex video of Hilton and then-boyfriend Rick Salomon was leaked on the Internet in 2003, later released as the DVD 1 Night in Paris despite attempted legal action. It appeared a week prior to the premiere of The Simple Life.

On December 20, 2008 around 4:00 am, a man in a hooded sweater and gloves entered Hilton’s Mulholland Estates, Los Angeles home and stole $2 million dollars worth of jewelry and other items from her bedroom. Hilton was not home at the time and nobody was injured in the home invasion. There is speculation that it was an inside job.

to be immortalised alongside remarks by some of the greatest thinkers of all time in the latest edition of the Oxford Book of Quotations — and she reckons it’s “so cool”.

Hilton, the socialite turned reality TV star and retailing phenomenon, is listed in the latest version of the 65-year-old dictionary, released this week, alongside the likes of Confucius, Oscar Wilde and Stephen Hawking.

Her contribution? “Dress cute wherever you go, life is too short to blend in.”

Hilton, 28, was delighted to be featured in the book which is a renowned list of memorable sayings.

“So cool that I have a quote in the dictionary,” she wrote on her Twitter page.

Another new entry in the seventh edition of the Oxford University Press publication is Sarah Palin.

The former vice-presidential candidate makes the cut for her most famous quip: “What’s the difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull? Lipstick.”

More than 20,000 new quotations have been added to the dictionary including President Barack Obama for saying: “The arc of history is long but it bends towards justice.”

Others came from the likes of British author Terry Pratchett — using an “embuggerance” to describe his Alzheimer’s — and from author Fay Weldon: “Guilt is to motherhood as grapes are to wine.”

“Harry Potter” director says finale to be best yet

“Harry Potter” director says finale to be best yet

NEW YORK – july 14 – The sixth “Harry Potter” film opens on Wednesday and is likely to be another hit for the boy wizard series, but with filming started on the finale, British director David Yates says “you haven’t seen anything yet.”

“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” in which romance, magic and comedy collide as teenage hormones rage at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, has received rave reviews and already sold out hundreds of theaters for its opening day.

Based on author British author J.K. Rowling’s seven novels, which have sold more than 400 million copies, the film franchise has so far raked $4.5 billion worldwide for Warner Bros. studio, which is owned by Time Warner Inc.

The series finale is being split into two movies for which filming began five months ago and is due to finish in about a year. Part one of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” is due out in late 2010 and part two is planned for release in 2011.

“People are being very kind about what they’re seeing in ‘Half-Blood Prince’ and I just think you haven’t seen anything yet,” Yates, who directed “Harry Potter” five and six and is helming the final two, said in a recent interview.

“(Part one) is like a road movie, refugees being chased by all these people who want to kill them. It’s quite intense,” he said. “Then the final film is like this big opera, big epic, it’s got more set pieces than any of the others.”

“It’s fights and dragons and battles,” he said. “It’s a real rollercoaster, but with a really oddly uplifting end.”

Website Rottentomatoes.com, which collates movies reviews, said 96 percent of critics liked “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” Variety magazine said the movie is set to become “one of the year’s two or three top-earning films.”

ROWLING TO “POP IN” MORE OFTEN

The three key cast members who have played their characters throughout the series — Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) — said they were excited about the final films.

“I feel like I’m on this totally different film,” Watson, 19, told a news conference. “All of us are now finished with school and we’re just totally focused on this finale.”

Radcliffe said he didn’t want to start contemplating the end of the film yet, which he likened to his “dream coming to an end,” while Tom Felton, who plays Potter enemy Draco Malfoy, said he would “cry my eyes out” when it’s finished.

Author Rowling has said she was devastated after finishing the final “Harry Potter” book, which was published in July 2007 by Scholastic Corp in the United States and Bloomsbury Publishing elsewhere in the world.

The books, which she spent 17 years working on, have made the mother-of-three one of the world’s wealthiest writers.

Rowling has also remained involved throughout the making of the films, reading scripts before shooting begins and offering suggestions, Yates said.

“She’s really gracious, she’s not territorial,” he said. “She kind of recognizes the challenges of adapting (a book for a film) and she’s really sympathetic to that.”

“She said now that the shooting part is coming to an end she might just pop in more often, which we would love,” Yates said. “She was so busy with all the other books she couldn’t (visit much more than once a year).”

Chris Columbus directed the first two “Harry Potter” films, Alfonso Cuaron took on the third and Mike Newell directed the fourth before Yates took control of the final four movies.

“I wake up in the morning I think Potter, I got to bed I think Potter. By the time I finish I probably will have spent seven years doing Potter,” Yates said.

“It’s a challenge to bring this huge thing to a conclusion and I couldn’t bear letting that go and seeing someone else doing it,” he said. “I couldn’t let it go, it was too addictive, too compulsive, too much fun.”
