Romney for US president in 2016? Iowa poll puts him on top

Former US Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland, on March 15, 2013 Americans may not be through with Mitt Romney after all. The two-time Republican presidential candidate has repeatedly stressed over the past year that he is not interested in a third shot at the White House. The survey of Iowa Republican voters conducted by Suffolk University and USA Today showed that if Romney was added to the pool of potential 2016 Republican contenders, 35 percent of respondents would place him first in the Iowa caucuses, the political contest that kicks off the primary calendar. Arkansas ex-governor Mike Huckabee came in a distant second, at just nine percent, with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie trailing at 6.5 percent and former senator Rick Santorum at six percent.

"We produced the performance we wanted -- on the tactical side, on the technical side, and on the mental side," said Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who may still have to sign a striker as Frenchman Olivier Giroud will be out for up to four months after undergoing surgery on a broken tibia.

California would triple tax breaks for film production under deal

By Sharon Bernstein SACRAMENTO Calif. (Reuters) - California will triple its tax breaks for entertainment companies doing business in the state, the latest effort to stem a tide of runaway production that has cost billions in revenue in Hollywood's home state under a deal announced on Wednesday. The increase in tax credits, aimed at luring production back to California even as other states offer tax breaks of their own, comes just a few weeks after the California Film Commission said the state had lost $2 billion in the past four years alone as producers sought cheaper places to do business. "This law will make key improvements in our Film and Television Tax Credit Program and put thousands of Californians to work," said Democratic Governor Jerry Brown, who signed on to the deal along with the Democratic and Republican leaders of the state legislature. The deal, which still must be approved by both houses of the legislature before the end of their session this week, would increase the amount of money available for tax credits for film and television production to $330 million per year, up from about $100 million.

Ron Paul, R-Texas, at the Iowa State Fair Grounds in Des Moines, Iowa.

Michelle Bachmann’s, R-Minn., political action committee and presidential campaign in exchange for working as Bachmann’s state chair in 2011. The state senator received a $25,000 check from a high-ranking official in Ron Paul’s presidential campaign days before ditching Michele Bachmann to support Paul, and eventually received $73,000 in payments that may be linked to Paul’s campaign, the independent investigator has found.

Self-deluded stage mom grabs 'The Last of Robin Hood' spotlight

Actress Susan Sarandon arrives at the Time 100 gala celebrating the magazine's naming of the 100 most influential people in the world for the past year in New York By Patricia Reaney NEW YORK (Reuters) - Thwarted ambition and shattered dreams push actress Susan Sarandon to become the ultimate stage mother in "The Last of Robin Hood," a drama about the final fling of middle-aged matinee idol Errol Flynn and his teenage lover. As Florence Aadland, the mother of Flynn's young paramour Beverly, Sarandon ventures into Aadland's deluded nature and complicit role in the illicit two-year affair that shocked Hollywood when it was made public after Flynn's death in 1959. Sarandon, an Oscar winner for "Dead Man Walking," has played mothers, and even a grandmother, in films ranging from "Pretty Baby" in 1978 to 2014's comedy "Tammy." As the frumpish Aadland, a former dancer whose career ended when she lost a leg in a car accident, Sarandon portrays a woman who lived vicariously through the daughter she had groomed for a career in Hollywood. Academy Award winner Kevin Kline ("A Fish Called Wanda") plays Flynn, the hard-drinking, notorious ladies' man known for his swashbuckling roles in the 1930s films "The Adventures of Robin Hood" and "Captain Blood." Flynn had already faced two accusations of statutory rape that nearly ruined his waning career when he met Beverly, played by actress Dakota Fanning of the "Twilight" films.
