Arnold Schwarzenegger thinks he’d been a great U.S. President

Published

Arnold Schwarzenegger, known for iconic catchphrases like “Get to the chopper” and “I’ll be back,” proves that he knows what his audience desires.

When asked about the ongoing actors’ strike and if he would need to recite his famous lines, Schwarzenegger doesn’t hesitate to oblige. Amidst the weights and running machines at Guardians Personal Training Centre, situated at Parliament Hill Lido, the 76-year-old actor and former California governor makes it clear that he’s not one to argue over trade union nuances.

In this unusual interview setting, Schwarzenegger emphasizes that while the actors’ strike may prevent him from promoting his movies, it doesn’t apply to his catchphrases from films like “Predator” and “Terminator.”

Schwarzenegger’s London visit centers around his new book, “Be Useful: Seven Tools for Life,” which has garnered support even from unexpected quarters. Reviews from outlets like The Guardian, not typically known for favoring Republican politicians, have praised the book as an “improvement guide that actually works.” Schwarzenegger’s aim with the book, which covers topics such as working hard, thinking big, and keeping an open mind, is to help people become more successful.

Reflecting on his journey from bodybuilder to action star and politician, Schwarzenegger dismisses the notion of being a “self-made man,” emphasizing the importance of seeking help and supporting others. He credits numerous individuals, from bodybuilder Reg Park to the millions who voted for him during his tenure as the Republican governor of California, for his achievements.

Schwarzenegger has dedicated the past three decades to philanthropy, supporting causes like the Special Olympics and donating to pandemic responders. His recent Oktoberfest-themed fundraiser raised $7 million for after-school programs.

A helicopter carrying Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and his foreign minister crashed on Sunday as it was crossing mountain terrain in heavy fog.

The official said the lives of Raisi and Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian were “at risk following the helicopter crash”, which happened on the way back from a visit to the border with Azerbaijan in Iran’s northwest.

“We are still hopeful but information coming from the crash site is very concerning,” the official told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.

State TV quoted an official as saying at least one passenger and one crew member had been in contact with rescuers. It also said the helicopter had been found, though Iran’s Red Crescent denied this report.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who holds ultimate power with a final say on foreign policy and Iran’s nuclear programme, sought to reassure Iranians, saying there would be no disruption to state affairs. #iran #trending

Why Australia is becoming the new home of the Hollywood blockbuster

Published

on

Australia’s multimillion-dollar campaign to attract Hollywood productions to its shores appears to be paying off.

The allure of Australia lies not only in its picturesque locations but also in its competitive financial incentives.

The government offers generous rebates and tax breaks to international productions, making it an attractive proposition for filmmakers looking to maximise their budgets.

Despite the recent intake of Hollywood productions down under such as ‘The Fall Guy’ and ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’, Aussie independents are still finding the space to carve their own creative path.

Rob Fantozzi joined the program to discuss the latest in Hollywood, and showcased his own upcoming project – ‘Omerta‘. #featured
