Hollywood Novelist and Scriptwriter Eric Kaldor enters the Xone to talk about, creating the stories behind some of the iconic hit programs of 1970's, hollywood. The Rockford Files, Kojak, The Incredible Hulk.
Eric Kaldor's recent novel, "Downward Facing Dog" is a tragic dark, and somewhat comedic story that follows the misadventures of Eric Kaldor's public and private life as a Hollywood Scriptwriter for some of the most popular shows.
In the past, Eric Kaldor was a ski racer, a special Counter Intelligence Corps. agent, a ”Wild World of Sports” producer, and an Emmy nominated writer. His novel, "Downward Facing Dog" reconstructs his life of access to Hollywood Studios and Stars, and excess such as, indulging in orgies to dealing drugs in Beverly Hills. Once you read his story or listen to the podcast of each chapter, you will wonder if love, lust, manslaughter, suicide, and organ failure, had a cumulative effect on Eric, which lead to his survival and may lead to his salvation.
Pole sitter Lewis Hamilton was a commanding presence, on the track today in Sochi during qualifying, at the Formula One Russian Grand Prix. He was two-tenths ahead of his teammate, Nico Rosberg who secured second.
The 53-lap street circuit with challenging twists and turns, on a purposefully built track, is in the heart of the beautiful Black Sea Resort in Sochi. The long straight before turn one is where Hamilton will likely battle with Rosberg to hold onto, first position. The other drivers also view the location as a great place to improve, their position during the race.
Williams-Martini driver, Valtteri Bottas was third. Bottas set the fastest first and second sectors on his final run, but started to struggled towards the end of the lap and lost the rear of the car in the last corner. As a result Bottas had to settle for third on the grid, with Jenson Button taking his best dry qualifying of the year in fourth.
Russian driver Daniil Kvyat for Toro Rosso, was excited to race at his home circuit. He made an impressive showing by securing 5th position, the best qualifying result of his career.
Disappointed, was Daniel Ricciardo in 7th who had a bit of a problem with the grip, of the new track stating, “It was hard to read the grip.” His Red Bull teammate Sebastian Vettel in eleventh position was not satisfied with the rear of the car while taking corners. He said, “The car felt nervous”.
Force India continues to work hard for points. Team Principal Vijay Mallya said “the penalty against Nico Hulkenberg was unfortunate and strategy options will be limited on a track where overtaking appears difficult.” At the end of the day, the teams learned quite a bit from qualifying on the new track.
Coming off of a controversial lock-up on the track during qualifying, that slowed down teammate Lewis Hamilton’s faster flying lap, Nico Rosberg won the Formula One Grand Prix in Monaco today. Rosberg won on the same track that lead his father Keke Rosberg to victory, years earlier.
Thanks to the skillful driving of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, the Mercedes AMG team is 161 points ahead of their closest rival Red Bull. German driver Nico Rosberg has become a netter driver since Lewis Hamilton started sharing his data with him, something his former team-mate and 7-time world champion Michael Schumacher did not, do. They may be friendly competitors on the track but they are the epitome of a good team. Rosberg and Hamilton’s efforts to score points for the team have been very successful all season because points, translate into revenue.
A welcomed surprise was Marussia driver Jules Bianchi who got the first ever points for the team this season, placing them 9th in the Constructors. They gained entry into Formula One in 2009 and have been a hard working team struggling to gain Constructor points.
Stay tuned to Xiro Xone F1 Sports. Next race is Canada.
