Miss USA 2010 Pageant

LAS VEGAS – A 24-year-old Arab American from Michigan beat out 50 other women to take the 2010 Miss USA title Sunday night, despite nearly stumbling in her evening gown.

Rima Fakih of Dearborn, Mich., won the pageant at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip after strutting confidently in an orange and gold bikini, wearing a strapless white gown that resembled a wedding dress and saying health insurance should cover birth control pills.

When asked how she felt about winning the crown, she said, "Ask me after I've had a pizza."

Fakih, a Lebanese immigrant, told pageant organizers her family celebrates both Muslim and Christian faiths. She moved to the United States as a baby and was raised in New York, where she attended a Catholic school. Her family moved to Michigan in 2003.

Pageant officials said historical pageant records were not detailed enough to show whether Fakih was the first Arab American, Muslim or immigrant to win the Miss USA title. The pageant started in 1952 as a local bathing suit competition in Long Beach, Calif.

Fakih told reporters she sold her car after graduating college in Michigan to help pay for her run in the Miss Michigan USA pageant.

She said she believed she had the title on Sunday after glancing at pageant owner Donald Trump as she awaited the results with the first runner-up, Miss Oklahoma USA Morgan Elizabeth Woolard.

"That's the same look that he gives them when he says, 'You're hired,'" on Trump's reality show "The Apprentice," she said.

"She's a great girl," said Trump, who owns the pageant with NBC in a joint venture.

In a moment that was replayed during the broadcast, Fakih nearly fell while finishing her walk in her gown because of the length of its train. But she made it without a spill and went on to win.

"I did it here, I better not do it at Miss Universe," she said. "Modeling does help, after all."

Violence in 2010 Presidential Elections in the Phils.

9 dead, 12 hurt in "most peaceful" elections

At least nine people were killed while 12 others were wounded in over 30 violent incidents that marred the country’s first nationwide automated elections on Monday.

The military, however, said this year’s has been the “most peaceful" elections so far.

“So far, this has been the most peaceful if we will compare it to the previous elections," said Col. Ricardo Nepomuceno, spokesman of the Armed Forces’ Task Force Honest, Orderly and Peaceful Elections.

“We hope this would hold until tonight and throughout until the counting (of the votes) is over," Nepomuceno added.

Nepomuceno said that as of 3 p.m. Monday, they recorded 37 election-related violent incidents based on the reports of military units nationwide.

He said this number was far lower compared to the previous elections where incidents “go by the hundreds." He, however, failed to give the number of violent incidents in previous elections.

The 37 incidents were broken down into six shooting incidents, 13 harassments, five encounters, one ransacking/robbery, one confiscation of a firearm, one ballot snatching, five voter intimidations, three mauling and two explosions of improvised explosives.

Violent clashes between supporters of rival political clans are commonplace in Philippine elections. —KBK, GMANews.TV

Mayweather beats Mosley

LAS VEGAS –Floyd Mayweather remained unbeaten on Saturday, defeating "Sugar" Shane Mosley by unanimous decision on Saturday in a showdown of veteran US welterweight boxers.

Mayweather improved to 41-0, winning on judges' scores of 119-109, 119-109 and 118-110, while Mosley fell to 46-6.

Mosley, a Maori tribal tattoo adorning his left shoulder, landed a hard right cross early in the second round that staggered Mayweather and followed with several more punches that threatened to end the fight early.

But Mayweather weathered the storm and slowly began to use his speed and skill to seize command. By the sixth round, he was landing hard rights and getting inside to work on 38-year-old Mosley time after time.

Mayweather, 33, connected on more power shots late in the seventh round and started verbal taunts as well as hard punches in the eighth and kept dominating all the way to the final bell in the 12th round.

Mayweather had been looking to fight unbeaten Filipino superstar Manny Pacquiao but talked unraveled and Pacquiao instead fought Ghana's Joshua Clottey on March 13, beating him by unanimous decision in Dallas.

Mosley had not fought since a ninth-round stoppage of Antonio Margarito in January of last year.

Mayweather declined to fight for Mosley's World Boxing Association welterweight title because he did not wish to surrender three percent of the purse total to the sanctioning body.
