Who's up, who's down



Tiger Woods

Who's Up

Nikki Haley
The daughter of Sikh immigrants from Amritsar won the governor's race in South Carolina on Tuesday. Born Nimrata (Nikki) Randhawa, the Republican will be the first woman chief executive of the state and America's second Indian-American governor after Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, also a Republican, who became the first with his election three years ago.

 

Deepak Chahar
The 19-year-old made a dream debut as he burst on the national cricket stage taking eight wickets in 45 balls for Rajasthan, a feat no Indian pacer has come anywhere close to. The opponent, Hyderabad, were all out for 21, the lowest total in the Ranji Trophy's 77-year history. Chahar ended with figures of 7. 3 overs, 2 maidens, 10 runs and 8 wickets. The Boy Wonder took another three wickets in the second innings, showing that his first innings success was no fluke.

 

Naomi Campbell
The British supermodel celebrated her 25th year on the ramp. Her past run-ins with the law, thanks to her notorious temper, have left her with a tarnished image, one that she seems to want to clean up. Still, 25 years is a long time in any career, and in the eat- 'em-up-and-spit- 'em-out world of high fashion, it shows extraordinary physical and emotional resilience.

 

Who's Down

Barack Obama
Just two years after he swept into the White House, it appears from the just-concluded midterm US elections that Americans are having second thoughts about his agenda. Too many voters are not happy with Obama's handling of the economy, his style of leadership and, it seems, the persona of the first black US president. And that ruined the election chances of many Democratic candidates.


MGM Studio
The iconic Hollywood studio filed for bankruptcy protection after struggling to overcome crippling debt. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, which controls the James Bond franchise, could now merge with Spyglass Entertainment as part of reorganisation proposals.


Silvio Berlusconi
The Italian premier has shrugged off more than his share of scandals, but even allies are losing patience with his antics. Berlusconi, trying to make light of recent reports of his personal relationship with a 17-year-old Moroccan girl, said during a news conference in Milan, "It's better to be passionate about beautiful women than gay. " The remarks prompted a torrent of outrage and renewed calls for his resignation.


Tiger Woods
The dethroning of the world's Number 1 golfer, after an unprecedented reign of more than five years, will deliver him another reminder of his rapid decline.
