Tears and teddy bears as fans mourn Jackson

Tears and teddy bears as fans mourn Jackson

Candles, teddy bears and tears lined the streets of Hollywood on Friday as grieving fans of Michael Jackson gathered to celebrate the musical icon's turbulent life and times.

Hundreds of fans joined devotees who had camped out overnight on Hollywood Boulevard's "Walk of Fame," the stretch of sidewalk where celebrities are immortalized with stars set into concrete.

A makeshift shrine was slowly being built around Jackson's star, with mourning fans leaving candles, flowers, personal letters, teddy bears, balloons and paintings in his honor.

Fans queued for hours in boiling sunshine to file past Jackson's star after police erected crash barriers to manage the crowds.

Mark Cho, 25, from San Francisco was typical of the crowds that came to pay their respects. "I stood in line for more than two hours, but it was totally worth it," he said. "I feel sad, this is a tragedy. Despite everything that was said, he was a very good man."

Another fan identified only as Anthony arrived wearing a white glove and a banner reading: "Michael Jackson: A Musical Messiah.

"He was the man. He did a wonderful job, he had a wonderful life, raising a wonderful family," he told AFP.

"This is my last opportunity to pay tribute to a hero, we love Michael Jackson and the whole world will miss him," another fan, Nan Khan, added.

"My first concert ever was Michael Jackson in Washington in early 1984 or 1985 and I was 13-years-old."

Anthony Robinson, a 35-year-old fan, said he had spent the night at the site after Jackson's death was confirmed on Thursday.

"I haven't slept at all," Robinson told AFP. "When I learned the news I went to the Westwood hospital and when we got the confirmation I came here to pay tribute and remember the King of Pop.

"He was my second God -- I can't imagine the world without him."

One fan, who gave her name as Mary, offered prayers to Jackson at the site. "I just was telling him how we'll love him and how wonderful was his legacy and how we'll miss him," she told AFP.

One entrepreneur saw a business opportunity in Jackson's death -- hastily printing commemorative T-shirts bearing the slogan: "The King of Pop Rest in Peace. August 29, 1958 - June 25, 2009. There'll never be another!"

"I started printing 2,000 T-shirts at 3:00 pm yesterday when I learned the news of Jackson by Twitter, at 2:00 am I finished the printing and came here, to start selling to the fans in the street," said David Anthony, 25.

"I was born in 1985 but my father and uncle love his music, he was just magic," said Anthony, revealing he had already sold around 500 T-shirts.

Meanwhile dozens of fans appeared outside the Jackson family compound in the Los Angeles suburb of Encino, leaving candles, bouquets, assorted flowers, teddy bears and cards, several bearing the message: ""We Love You, Michael."

Tokyo native Yuka Suzuki brought her six-year-old daughter Sana to see the flowers. "I grew up with him in Tokyo," Suzuki told AFP. "Jackson's music was always there, his song was always there."

But while some fans mourned, others chose to mark Jackson's death with wild celebrations late Thursday.

In West Hollywood, patrons of bars blaring out classic Jackson tracks spilled out onto the street dancing and cheering, according to an AFP reporter.

Meanwhile, staff at Hollywood's famous Amoeba Records store reported that fans rushed to snap up Jackson records, CDs, videos and posters.

Jackson body taken by family

The family of Michael Jackson claimed the body of the late pop star late Friday following an autopsy earlier in the day, Los Angeles County coroner's spokesman Ed Winter said.

Jackson's family removed the singer's body at around 9pm (0400 GMT), eluding hordes of camera crews and photographers. There was no immediate indication of where Jackson's body was being moved to.

No information regarding funeral arrangements has been released.

Jackson died Thursday after apparently suffering a cardiac arrest at his rented mansion in Beverly Hills, sending shockwaves through the music world and triggering a global outpouring of grief.

The final act of Michael Jackson's life came into clearer focus Friday, a picture of a fallen superstar working out with TV's "Incredible Hulk" and under the care of his own private cardiologist as he tried to get his 50-year-old body in shape for a gruelling bid to reclaim his glory.

While the exact circumstances of his death remained unclear, early clues suggested he may simply have pushed his heart too far.

Police said they had towed the doctor's BMW from Jackson's home because it may include medication or other evidence, and a source familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that a heart attack appeared to have caused the cardiac arrest that led to the pop icon's sudden death.

As grief for the King of Pop poured out from the icons of music to heartbroken fans, and the world came to grips with losing one of the most luminous celebrities of all time, an autopsy showed no sign of trauma or foul play to Jackson, who died Thursday at UCLA Medical Center after paramedics not could not revive him.

The AP source who said Jackson apparently suffered a heart attack was not authorized to speak publicly and requested anonymity. Jackson's brother Jermaine had said the pop singer apparently went into cardiac arrest — which often, but not always, happens because of a heart attack.

Authorities said they spoke with the doctor briefly Thursday and Friday and expected to meet with him again soon. Police stressed that the doctor, identified by the Los Angeles Times as cardiologist Conrad Murray, was not a criminal suspect.

"We do not consider him to be uncooperative at this time," Beck said. "We think that he will assist us in coming to the truth of the facts in this case."

Craig Harvey, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County coroner, said there were no signs of foul play in the autopsy and further tests would be needed to determine cause of death. He said Jackson was taking some unspecified prescription medication but gave few other details.

Meanwhile, a 911 call released by fire officials shed light on the desperate effort at the mansion to save Jackson's life before paramedics arrived Thursday afternoon. Jackson died later at UCLA Medical Center.

In the recording, an unidentified caller pleads with authorities to send help, offering no clues about why Jackson was stricken. He tells a dispatcher that Jackson's doctor is performing CPR.

"He's pumping his chest," the caller says, "but he's not responding to anything."

Asked by the dispatcher whether anyone saw what happened, the caller answers: "No, just the doctor, sir. The doctor has been the only one there."

The president of the company promoting Jackson's shows said Murray was Jackson's personal physician for three years. Jackson insisted Murray accompany him to London, said Randy Phillips, president of AEG Live.

Phillips quoted Jackson as saying: "Look, this whole business revolves around me. I'm a machine, and we have to keep the machine well-oiled." Phillips said Jackson submitted to at least five hours of physicals that insurers had insisted on.

On Friday, the autopsy was completed in a matter of hours, but an official cause of death could take up to six weeks while medical examiners await toxicology tests. No funeral plans had been made public.

Jackson had remained out of the public spotlight during intense rehearsals for the London concerts, but those with access said he was upbeat and seemingly energized by his planned comeback. Ken Ehrlich, executive producer of the Grammys, said he watched Jackson dance energetically as recently as Wednesday.

"There was this one moment, he was moving across the stage and he was doing these trademark Michael moves, and I know I got this big grin on my face, and I started thinking to myself, 'You know, it's been years since I've seen that,'" he said.

Lou Ferrigno, the star of "The Incredible Hulk," said he had been working out with Jackson for the past several months.

Still, Jackson's health had been known to be precarious in recent years, and one family friend said Friday that he had warned the entertainer's family about his use of painkillers.

"I said one day we're going to have this experience. And when Anna Nicole Smith passed away, I said we cannot have this kind of thing with Michael Jackson," Brian Oxman, a former Jackson attorney and family friend, told NBC's "Today" show. "The result was I warned everyone, and lo and behold, here we are. I don't know what caused his death. But I feared this day, and here we are."

Oxman claimed Jackson had prescription drugs at his disposal to help with pain suffered when he broke his leg after he fell off a stage and for broken vertebrae in his back.

The worldwide wave of mourning for Jackson continued unabated for the man who revolutionized pop music and moonwalked his way into entertainment legend.

"My heart, my mind are broken," said Elizabeth Taylor, who was one of Jackson's closest friends and married one of her husbands at a lavish wedding at the pop star's Neverland Ranch in 1991. She said she had heard the news as she was preparing to travel to London for Jackson's comeback show, and added, "I can't imagine life without him."

Hundreds made a pilgrimage to the Jackson family's compound in Los Angeles, leaving flowers and messages of love. They did the same at his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and at the home in Los Angeles' Holmby Hills where Jackson was stricken. Some camped out overnight.

In New York, people stopped at Harlem's Apollo Theater, where Jackson had performed as a child with his brothers in one of rock's first bubblegum supergroups, the Jackson 5.

Scores of celebrities who knew or worked with Jackson — or were simply awed by him — issued statements of mourning. Some came through publicists and others through emotional postings on social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook, where countless everyday fans were sharing memories as well.

"I truly hope he is memorialized as the '83 moonwalking, MTV owning, mesmerizing, unstoppable, invincible Michael Jackson," said John Mayer. Miley Cyrus called him "my inspiration."

And Diana Ross, the former lead singer of the Supremes who introduced the Jackson 5 at their debut on "The Ed Sullivan Show" in 1969, said she could not stop crying. "I am unable to imagine this," she said. "My heart is hurting."

His two ex-wives both said they were devastated. One of them, Lisa Marie Presley, posted a long, emotional statement on her MySpace page in which she said her ex-husband had confided to her 14 years ago that he feared dying young and under tragic circumstances, just as her father, Elvis Presley, had.

"I promptly tried to deter him from the idea, at which point he just shrugged his shoulders and nodded almost matter of fact as if to let me know, he knew what he knew and that was kind of that," Presley said.

Presley's father, the King of Rock 'n' Roll to Jackson's King of Pop, died in 1977 at age 42 of a drug-related death.

At rehearsals for Sunday's Black Entertainment Awards show, stars like Beyonce, Wyclef Jean and Ne-Yo were frantically revamping their performances in an effort to turn the evening into a Michael Jackson tribute.

"There's a direct line from Ne-Yo to Michael Jackson," said executive producer Stephen Hill. "There's a direct line from Beyonce to Michael Jackson. There's a direct line from Jay-Z to Michael Jackson. I think they'll want to pay tribute in their own way."

When he was on trial on child molestation charges in 2005, Jackson appeared gaunt and had recurring back problems that he attributed to stress. His trial was interrupted several times by hospital visits, and Jackson once even appeared late to court dressed in his pajamas after an emergency room visit.

After his acquittal, Jackson's prosecutor argued against returning some items that had been seized from Neverland, the Santa Barbara County estate Jackson had converted into a children's playland. Among the items were syringes, the powerful painkiller Demerol and other prescription drugs.

Demerol carries a long list of warnings to users. The government warns that mixing it with certain other drugs can lead to reactions including slowed or stopped breathing, shock and cardiac arrest.

Within hours of Jackson's death on Thursday, fans were inundating Web sites that sell his music, and physical stores reported they had been cleaned out of Michael Jackson and Jackson 5 CDs. All 10 of the albums on Amazon.com's bestseller list Friday were Jackson's; the 25th anniversary edition of "Thriller," the bestselling album of all time, was at the top.

Meanwhile, fans were snapping up every Jackson recording they could get their hands on.

Bill Carr, Amazon.com Inc.'s vice president for music and video, said the Web site sold out within minutes all CDs by Michael Jackson and by the Jackson 5. Jackson's albums accounted for all 10 of Amazon's "Bestsellers in Music" list Friday, with the 25th anniversary edition of the celebrated "Thriller" album taking the top spot.

Barnes and Noble Inc.'s Web site and retail stores also sold out most Jackson CDs, DVDs and books, and its 10 best-selling CDs were Jackson titles as well.

"They love him," said Bill Carr, Amazon's vice president for music and video. "He's a legend, and they're anxious to make sure they have his music in their collections."

Here are some basic Linux commands. Some are well known and some aren't. I am not a Linux Wizard...far from it...but I am learning some basic linux commands and thought I would share some with other newbies so they to can get more familiar with the terminal command line. These work on my Mandrake 8.1 system. xkill Kills a running program exit Exits the terminal reboot Reboots the system halt Shutsdown the computer startx Starts xwindows from terminal man man(command)shows help files info info(command) shows help files --help (command)--help shows help files su Allow you to login as Super User ls "Lists" the contents of the directory pwd Displays "present working directory" cd cd (name) change directory TO:(name) mkdir mkdir (name) Makes new directory rmdir rmdir (name) Removes directory clear Clears the terminal window date Displays current date and time cal Displays a calander uptime Displays time since last reboot df Displays the disk usage on partitions du Displays disk usage of directory id Displays your identification to system groups Displays groups of current user ulimit -a Displays users limits uname Displays name of machine logged into who Displays "who" is logged on the system w Similar to "who" wall Sends message to all logged in users top Displays cpu processes memory etc ps Displays current running processes ---------------------- RPM's Mandrake and RedHat Check if installed already rpm -q To Install the rpm rpm -ih To Update a program using an rpm rpm -Uvh ---------------------- Bored try this: apropos file List tons of file commands ----------------------- Many of the commands listed above have options that can be added to change the output of that command. To see what they are do a : man (command) and it will show you the options.

To start a program "like Opera" type the name at the command prompt: $ opera There are many file commands that I didn't list due to the complexity of them. Read up on them and you can harness the power of your computer from the command line! I have to go read now :)

UNETBOOTIN | Install Linux from your Pen Drive

Make you Pen Drive Bootable Linux

Introduction

UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for a variety of Linux distributions from Windows or Linux, without requiring you to burn a CD. You can either let it download one of the many distributions supported out-of-the-box for you, or supply your own Linux .iso file if you've already downloaded one or your preferred distribution isn't on the list.

How does UNetbootin work, and what does it do?

For the Live USB creation mode, UNetbootin downloads and extracts an ISO file to your USB drive, generates an appropriate syslinux config file, and makes your USB drive bootable using syslinux.

For the Hard Disk / "frugal install" mode, UNetbootin uses a Windows or Linux-based installer to install a small modification to the bootloader (bootmgr and bcdedit on Vista, grldr and boot.ini for NT-based systems, grub.exe and config.sys for Win9x, or GRUB on Linux, uses the bootloader to boot the desired distribution's installer or to load the system utility, no CD required. After the distribution has been installed, or once done using the system utility, the modification to the bootloader is then undone.

Does it have any spyware, viruses, trojans, or other malware?

No; though some anti-virus products (Kaspersky) raise "Trojan.generic" warnings due to the auto-uninstall feature, these are false positives. Just make sure you obtain UNetbootin from the official downloads page on Sourceforge not some shady third-party source. If you're absolutely paranoid, you can check the source code and compile it yourself.

Requirements

  • Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/Vista, or Linux. If you are having trouble with the Linux version, try the Windows version, it usually works better.
  • A broadband internet connection to download the distribution's .iso file (unless you're using pre-downloaded files)

Features

UNetbootin can create a bootable Live USB drive, or it can make a "frugal install" on your local hard disk if you don't have a USB drive. It can load distributions by automatically downloading their ISO (CD image) files, or by using existing ISO files, floppy/hard disk images, or kernel/initrd files, for installing other distributions. windowsDownload (for Windows) linuxDownload (for Linux) INSTRUCTION for WINDOWS screenshot screenshot INSTRUCTION for LINUX If using Linux, make the file executable (using either the command chmod +x ./unetbootin-linux, or going to Properties->Permissions and checking "Execute"), then start the application, you will be prompted for your password to grant the application administrative rights, then the main dialog will appear, where you select a distribution and install target (USB Drive or Hard Disk), then reboot when prompted. screenshot
  1. After rebooting, if you created a Live USB drive by selecting "USB Drive" as your install target, press the appropriate button (usually F1, F2, F12, ESC, or backspace) while your computer is starting up to get to your BIOS boot menu and select USB drive as the startup target; otherwise if there's no boot selection option, go to the BIOS setup menu and change the startup order to boot USB by default. Otherwise, if you did a "frugal install" by selecting "Hard Disk" as your install target, select the UNetbootin entry from the Windows Boot Menu as the system boots up.

» See Live USB Creation Guide.

Removal Instructions (Applicable only to Hard Disk / "frugal installs")

If using Windows, UNetbootin should prompt you to remove it the next time you boot into Windows. Alternatively, you can remove it via Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.

If using Linux, re-run the UNetbootin executable (with root priveledges), and press OK when prompted to uninstall.

Removal is only required if you used the "Hard Drive" installation mode; to remove the bootloader from a USB drive, back up its contents and reformat it.

Uninstalling UNetbootin simply removes the UNetbootin entry from your boot menu; if you installed an operating system to a partition using UNetbootin, removing UNetbootin will not remove the OS.

To manually remove a Linux installation, you will have to restore the Windows bootloader using "fixmbr" from a recovery CD, and use Parted Magic to delete the Linux partition and expand the Windows partition.

Installing Other Distributions Using UNetbootin

Download and run UNetbootin, then supply it with the appropriate ISO (CD image) file, floppy/hard disk image, or kernel and initrd files when prompted (see screenshot). Check your distribution's download page to find the appropriate file; if in doubt use the ISO file.

screenshot

If you're loading an ISO file or floppy/hard disk image, that's all that's required (just press "OK" to start installing); otherwise if you're manually specifying kernel and initrd files and you'd like to specify special booting options, check the distribution's boot configuration files (usually after the "kernel" line in either isolinux.cfg, syslinux.cfg, menu.lst, or grub.conf) and supply them on the "Option" line.
