Teri Hatcher – Now

Susan and Mike had a son, M.J., and tied the knot in Season 3, but their happiness was short-lived. When Desperate Housewives jumped forward five years, the two split after being involved in a car crash that killed two people. They eventually divorced and dated new characters, including Jackson Braddock (Gale Harold) and Katherine Mayfair (Dana Delany). The two later reconciled and remarried. Sadly, in Season 8, Mike was gunned down by a loan shark while trying to protect Susan.

‘He brought forth some of the most searing images of the 20th century’: Death of the photographer whose pictures defined the Vietnam War

Horst Faas, a prize-winning combat photographer who set new standards for covering war with a camera, has died aged 79.

The German, who joined US-based news agency The Associated Press (AP) in 1956, photographed wars, revolutions and Olympic Games.

But he was best known for covering Vietnam, where he was severely wounded in 1967 and won four major photo awards including the first of his two Pulitzer Prizes.

As chief of AP’s photo operations in Saigon for a decade starting in 1962, Faas covered the fighting while recruiting and training new talent from among foreign and Vietnamese freelancers.

The result was ‘Horst’s army’ of young photographers, who fanned out with Faas-supplied cameras and film and stern orders to ‘come back with good pictures’.

Faas and his editors chose the best and put together a steady flow of telling photos – South Vietnam’s soldiers fighting and its civilians struggling to survive amid the maelstrom.

Among his top proteges was Huynh Thanh My, an actor turned photographer who in 1965 became one of four AP staffers and one of two South Vietnamese among more than 70 journalists killed in the 15-year war.

My’s younger brother, Huynh Cong ‘Nick’ Ut, followed his brother at AP and under Faas’s tutelage won one of the news agency’s six Vietnam War Pulitzer Prizes, for his iconic 1972 picture of a badly burned Vietnamese girl fleeing an aerial napalm attack.

Faas, who dies in Munich yesterday, was a brilliant planner – able to score journalistic scoops by anticipating ‘not just what happens next but what happens after that’, as one colleague put it.

His reputation as a demanding taskmaster and perfectionist belied a humanistic streak he was loath to admit, while helping less fortunate ex-colleagues and other causes.

He was widely read on Asian history and culture, and assembled an impressive collection of Chinese Ming porcelain, bronzes and other treasures.

In later years Faas turned his training skills into a series of international photojournalism symposiums.

Faas also helped to organise reunions of the wartime Saigon press corps, and was attending a combination of those events when he became ill in Hanoi on May 4 2005.

He was hospitalised first in Bangkok and then in Germany, where doctors traced his permanent paralysis from the waist down to a spinal haemorrhage caused by blood-thinning heart medication.

Although requiring a wheelchair, he continued to travel to photo exhibits and other professional events, mainly in Europe.

Faas also made two arduous trips to the United States, in 2006 and 2008.

His health deteriorated in late 2008. Hospitalised in February for treatment of skin problems, he also underwent gastric surgery.

Faas’ Vietnam coverage earned him the Overseas Press Club’s Robert Capa Award and his first Pulitzer in 1965.

Receiving the honours in New York, he said his mission was to ‘record the suffering, the emotions and the sacrifices of both Americans and Vietnamese in … this little bloodstained country so far away’.

Burly but agile, Faas spent much time in the field and on December 6, 1967, was wounded in the legs by a rocket-propelled grenade at Bu Dop, in South Vietnam’s Central Highlands.

He might have bled to death had not a young US Army medic managed to stem the flow.

He often teamed with Pulitzer Prize-winning AP reporter Peter Arnett to produce powerful and exclusive reports such as the 1969 story of Company A, an army unit that balked at orders to move against the enemy.

Just the ticket for popping the question: The romantic ‘tunnel of love’ railway line that’s so beautiful it’s beyond be-leaf (just watch out for the train)

Strolling hand-in-hand with someone special, these young lovers must be in one of the world’s most romantic spots.

India may have the Taj Mahal, and Paris is the city of love, but the Ukraine has this incredible, ethereal Tunnel of Love.

There is one thing though, it’s also a train line. And when it’s choo-choo time, the tunnel does get rather noisy.

Rather unromantically, the tunnel is actually a three kilometre section of private railway that serves a fibreboard factory near the town of Klevan, in the east of the country. It runs around three times a day delivering wood to the factory.

However, in spring the beautiful avenue of trees is witness to a very different journey – into love. For it is a favoured spot for young romantics to stroll with that special someone.

The magic happens when the trees that line the rails burst into life and create a leafy enclosed arch over the track.

It is said that couples can come here to make a wish and if they are sincere in their love it will come true. Pictured here were Anton Kozachuk, 18, and Nastya Guz, 16.

Allison Williams is One of the Girls

1 of 8 Next

The new HBO series Girls isn’t exactly a show for dudes. It’s being called Sex and the City for twenty-something millennials (primarily of the female persuasion), but there’s enough clever writing and humor to lend it some appeal on both ends of the gender spectrum. There’s also Allison Williams, one of the show’s leading ladies, who makes a convincing case for tuning in.

RG3 and the Heisman Curse

When the 2012 NFL Draft kicks off Thursday night, the first pick sure looks like Andrew Luck. Meanwhile, Robert Griffin III is all the rage. The 2011 Heisman Trophy winner is expected to go second. But just because RG3 lit it up at Baylor doesn’t mean he’ll do the same in the NFL. Success against Stephen F. Austin does not guarantee success against the New York Giants, and the list of Heisman winners who bombed at the next level is not exactly short. Witness these 10 busts from just the past 25 years. Lotta QBs, just sayin’… —Monty McMahon

Google’s ‘Eye on the World’ releases hand-picked gallery of best shots of our changing planet – as seen from 425 miles up

The GeoEye-1 satellite is capable of capturing details as small as a dustbin as it hurtles past our planet at 17,000mph – and its creators have hand-picked views that show off the majesty of our planet.

GeoEye provides exclusive imagery to the Google Earth and Google Maps applications.

It captures around 270,000 square miles of Earth’s surface ever day – an amount of geographical data equivalent to the size of the State of Texas.

This image shows ice fields near Adelaide Island (on the west) which is a large, mainly ice-covered island, 75 miles long and 20 miles wide, lying at the north side of Marguerite Bay off the west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula
