Hello there Amber grew up in West Deptford, but moved to Los Angeles, then New York, where she took parts in commercials while studying for her MBA. She told friends she had no time for dating. There's always time for that, one friend said, and set up Amber's profile on PlentyofFish.com. Amber looked at profiles mainly to avoid homework. They were often humorously similar: likes movies and walks on the beach. Does not play games. Blah, blah. Then in November 2008, she read that John, an online marketer living in Monroe Township, Middlesex County, loved playing games - especially Trivial Pursuit and checkers.

She never expected that a few days after Dominick made that vow, he would act the hero and die for it. Just after midnight Sept.

The toddler drank a drain cleaner with sulfuric acid, but her drug-addicted mother didn't call 911 or rush her to the hospital. Instead, Marsha Hughes, 29, took 20-month-old Amber to a check-cashing store in April 1995, and cops arrested her on a bad- check rap. As Amber lay limply against her mother's shoulder, she couldn't speak or cry. It was only after a cop noticed Amber's lips were swollen and red and her tongue was thick and...

A somber Marsha Hughes told a Philadelphia judge yesterday that she had been punished enough by not being with her toddler daughter, whose throat and mouth were severely burned in April last year by sulphuric acid. Despite that plea for leniency, Hughes, who was addicted to crack when the incident happened, was sentenced to 15 months to 10 years in prison for simple assault and endangering the welfare of her daughter. Amber, then 20 months old, drank a liquid drain cleaner. Common Pleas Court Judge Murray C. Goldman acquitted Hughes in March of a charge that she poured the acid down her daughter's throat.

Some people were born to be in the movies. Madonna, despite her persistence in pursuing said art form, is not one of them. The latest, and perhaps definitive, proof: Swept Away. Together with her husband, the British director Guy Ritchie (Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), the onetime Material Girl had the ill-advised idea to redo Swept Away - Lina Wertmuller's 1974 arthouse hit about an arrogant millionairess stranded on a desert island with a lowly (but hunky) lug. Madonna is the insufferable Amber, a hard, haughty queen of the jet set who has embarked on a Mediterranean cruise with her drug-magnate husband (Bruce Greenwood)

Amber & Kierkegaard The inner self is not always commensurate with the outer shell, Søren Kierkegaard said. Amber Heard , in this respect, is a true Kirkegaardian. She looks like Barbie , she tells Elle, but she's not plastic. "I feel like I'm constantly fighting against my exterior, or this exterior presentation of myself," she says. Amber says her marriage to Johnny Depp has not collapsed her individuality. It's reinforced it. "I have a fiercely independent spirit," she says.

Amber Alerts are meant to be three things: rare, timely, and multiplatform. Thursday's 4 a.m. Amber Alert was all three, and it woke up a lot of people. It came to many slumbering locals via their cellphones - emitting, in many cases, that special piercing tone that accompanies emergency messages. Many are calling Thursday's alert a multimedia success - an effort at public awareness, by all media means, that paid off. After 2 a.m., the body of Christina Corrigan Belajonas, 28, was found in her Drexel Hill apartment.
