It’s suspected that a meat distributor in Poland, which works with Burger King and other supermarket chains, used meats other than beef as filler in cheap burgers.

When the body of Anneka Di Lorenzo washed up by Camp Pendleton, a Marine Corps in Southern California, investigators believed it was someone quite young.
Only later were the remains determined to be those of the 58-year-old former model and actress who once aspired to be “the sexiest woman in the world.”
Anneka Di Lorenzo, the 1975 Penthouse Pet of the Year, was found earlier this year in a restricted area of the USMC base with her neck and back broken.
What investigators are struggling to determine is how.
After becoming Pet of the Year, she acted in Caligula and other films. She datedMore >

The actress “is yearning to get married and have kids,” a source says.
The insider says Kopelman, 34, has been thinking about marrying Drew, 36, and could pop the question “around the one-year mark of their dating” this winter.
“He’s madly in love and knows she’s The One, but he just needs a bit more time,” another source dishes. Mmm hmm. You best move it before you lose it, W-Kop.

In addition to Ryan Gosling’s Drive, a couple of other films opened with much fanfare this weekend. But should you rush out to see either? Movie Fanatic examines:
In I Don’t Know How She Does It, Sarah Jessica Parker stars as Kate, a wife and mother of small kids with a flourishing career that leads to the title question.

While it has its work cut out to one-up the original, a sequel to the downright ghastly film Human Centipede is being produced (and is already banned in the UK).
Writer-director Tom Six has promised he would raise the stakes and take audiences even further into his warped cinematic mind in The Human Centipede 2.
From the looks of the trailer and synopsis, it appears he’s achieved that:

Taylor Lautner might be a little too modest.
In the latest issue of VMAN, the dreamy actor doesn’t take any credit for the mammoth success of The Twilight Saga, instead telling the magazine:
“It’s definitely these characters we are playing. [Fans] are in love with Bella Swan, Edward Cullen, and Jacob Black. They feel like they know them. We are just lucky enough to be playing them.”
Stare all you’d like, ladies. He’s not going anywhere.
True, but it’s possible the looks and the talent of Lautner, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson play some role.More >
You’ve seen them on magazine covers, but are you ready to get a look at Katniss and Peeta inside The Hunger Games themselves?
Two new photos have emerged online from the set of the March 2012 blockbuster, one featuring Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss and the other of Josh Hutcherson as Peeta. It’s safe to assume both of these images are courtesy of the titular, death-defying contest itself:

While the NZ Equity and MEAA have decided Peter Jackson and The Hobbit production can film in New Zealand and that they are in fact treating workers fairly, Jackson and Warner Bros. have decided that they don’t want to work around the groups demands and public outings of the films production, instead announcing today that they will be abandoning New Zealand and shooting “off shore.”
Here’s the Press Release Jackson released:
The lifting of the blacklist on The Hobbit does nothing to help the films stay in New Zealand. The damage inflicted on our film industry by NZ Equity/MEAA is long
