    surnamed the Great, or the Elder, the founder of the Persian empire; began his conquests by overthrowing his grandfather Astyages, king of the Medes; subdued Croesus, king of Lydia; laid siege to Babylon and took it, and finished by being master of all Western Asia; was a prince of great energy and generosity, and left the nations he subjected and rendered tributary free in the observances of their religions and the maintenance of their institutions; this is the story of the historians, but it has since been considerably modified by study of the ancient monuments (560-529 B.C.).

  2. Miley Cyrus:

    There's a lot of dimension to it, and actually it was while the devastation of Malibu was happening, and it was a really weird learning experience for me because I was so far from home and the show is already really dark, and it's already kind of eerie when you're there the whole time, but I learned a lot about Miley Cyrus, and I think I was able to use that and put that into it.

  3. Alyssa Milano:

    As a mom I would so love to have an award ceremony like the VMAs to watch with my kids because my son, who is 4, loves music so much, but obviously I don’t feel comfortable, we saw a little of it because my husband was watching it for work purposes, my son says ‘ why are there so many holes in [ Miley Cyrus' ] outfit ? ’ which I thought was amazing. So speaking of style, that’s her own personal style.

    No one should be worried about me, Simmons said. The people that surround me are wonderful people who take great care of me. WATCH: The Real Reason Richard Simmons Has Been in Hiding For Nearly a Year On Saturday, the New York Daily News published a long report citing on and off the record sources who expressed concern for Simmons' well-being. Simmons called the report very hurtful. I love all the people who worry about me, Simmons said. But it was time for me to take some time to be by myself. For the last 40 years I have been traveling, teaching classes, and I had a knee injury, so I had a knee replacement, which was very difficult for me… I have really just been taking it easy, staying at home, working out in my gym and doing the things I haven't done in a very long time. According to Simmons, he's been keeping in shape despite concern that he might need another knee replacement. In response to speculation he has avoided going out because he has gained weight, Simmons said, I still weigh 150. I work out every day. I have a gym at the house, and I am very healthy. Simmons was last photographed in January 2014 by TMZ. In November 2014, reports of Simmons' knee injury surfaced. Simmons took to Facebook then to thank his fans for their outpouring of love and concern. I have had a tough time dealing with this injury, as it is keeping me from doing what I truly love to do and that is to teach classes around the world, he wrote. Make sure you keep Sweatin'!
