Meet Chris Medina: The American Idol contestant's heartbreak and powerful audition on Wednesday night's show in Milwaukee touched the judges and helped earn him a golden ticket to Hollywood. Medina, 26, told the story of his fiancée, Juliana, who was working at Starbucks when he proposed to her after dating for six years. Two months before they were to tie the knot, she was in an accident that left her with a traumatic brain injury. "Everything changed," said Medina. "We're still not married." But Medina still cares for his fiancée with her mother.
I was about to make vows just two months from the accident – through thick and thin, 'til death do us part, for better or worse," he said. "What kind of guy would I be if I walked out when she needed me the most?" Medina's audition – he sang "Breakeven" by The Script – was more than enough to get earn him a ticket to the Hollywood round. But the judges were so taken by Medina's story they invited Juliana into the studio to meet her. "I just heard your fiancé sing," Steven Tyler told Juliana. "He sings to you all the time. I could tell. That's why he sings so good because he sings to you." Later, outside the audition room, Medina, who wears his ring around his neck, leaned over and listened to Juliana whisper something, telling the cameras, "She said, 'I knew it.' "

Lebih menyedihkan, kita masih lagi tidak mengetahui nasib pelajar dan penduduk kita di sana. Kerana sebarang bentuk komunikasi di sana di halang. Servis internet juga di berhentikan.
Interview pelajar Malaysia di Mesir-Buletin utama(31.1.2011)
Di bawah ini adalah surat dari seorang pelajar Malaysia di sana.
Salam Ariff, saya Nadia, a student in Egypt.
Ariff, kini saya berada di Malaysia kerana pulang untuk winter break,
but when I got home, the condition in Egypt somehow got worse about the
Hosni Mubarak thingy. Ramai yang sangka keadaan kat sana adalah okay,
mengikut kata Jabatan Penuntut Kaherah Mesir dan Kedutaan Malaysia di sana, but there are parts that they don’t know:
Di tempat saya Mansoura, people got killed on the streets, houses are getting
robbed and they are aiming to attack Malaysian students. There are about
6000 prisoners on the streets! Pelajar kita di Alexandria dirogol, airport dibakar dan anggota polis tidak lagi menjalankan tugas mereka.
Kita memohon supaya kerajaan Malaysia memandang serius hal ini. Bukan sahaja di Mansoura, malah di seluruh Mesir keselamatan rakyat kita terancam.
