A Christian in the World

Do things for your community not yourself. I remember very little from church business meetings I have attended over the years. The church had monthly business meetings on Sunday nights. They were the worst. Sitting there as a teenager bored out of my mind. Even after becoming a pastor most of them aren’t noteworthy in […]

Fix the dam first, then focus on forks In summer tourist season, there is hardly enough water at the forks of the Thames to even call it a river. When the old Springbank dam was operating, there was enough water that I was able to sail a small sailboat from the Dundas bridge down past […]

v During the summer I write in a little cottage near a small lake in Canada. It’s quiet here and nearly without interruption. This morning I went back into the house to get a fizzy water from the fridge. The phone behind me rang and I picked it up. It was a man with an […]

  . For this story, the word ‘Kingston’ from my last story, was the memory trigger, and Bentall’s in particular. Summer 1962, I was, and still am a shy person. Shy people will know how harrowing this story would have been for them in the same situation. I was thirty, my wife Ann and I, […]

There is one thing that never fails in bringing people willingly to pile into a dark, crowded room: movies. Movies are a significant part of our society, as timeless classics continue to inspire us, and we remember them through the nostalgia of childhood. Many of the works deemed as classics have been appearing back in […]

Netflix says it will start sharing more viewership data with the producers behind its originals. It’s a pivot for the streaming-video company, which previously said TV ratings and viewership data created undue pressure on productions. The shift comes as Netflix faces more competition for content from Amazon, Apple, Disney, and others. Visit Business Insider’s homepage […]

The cast of 90s favourite Saved By The Bell have been giving fans all the nostalgic feels after meeting for a catch-up dinner ahead of the show’s 30th anniversary. Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tiffani Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley and Mario Lopez – and their partners – all came together for the meal in Sherman Oaks, LA – with Mario joking: ‘We’ve eaten an obscene amount of food. An obscene amount of food.’ Those who loved the show back in the day were thrilled to see the quartet together – minus fellow co-stars Dustin Diamond and Lark Vorhiees – but just what have they been up to since those days at Bayside High? Here’s what you need to know… Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris) (Picture: Rex Shutterstock) Heartthrob Zack was a bit of an all-rounder in Saved By The Bell, with his flair for business, athletics and music, as well as his involvement with the school radio station. Was there anything Mark-Paul Gosselaar’s character couldn’t do? Where is Mark-Paul Gosselaar now? The actor, now 45, has a lengthy string of credits to his name with TV shows including NYPD Blue, Franklin and Bash, Don’t Trust The B_ In Apartment 23 and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation – while film credits include Heist and Dead Man On Campus. He’s also a dad of four, with a son and daughter from his first marriage to Lisa Ann Russell, and a son and daughter with current wife Catriona McGinn. Tiffani Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski) (Picture: Getty Images/Rex Shutterstock) Kelly Kapowski was the most popular girl at Bayside High and also one of the busiest, what with cheerleading, sports teams and fangirling over George Michael. Oh, and she also ended up marrying Zack. Where is Tiffani Thiessen now? The actress, now 45, went on to star in another long-running TV favourite, Beverly Hills 90210, in which she played Valerie Malone from 1994-1998 and again in 2000. Her lengthy list of credits also includes TV series White Collar from 2009-2014 as well as being one of the main voices in cartoon Jake And The Neverland Pirates. More recently the mum of two fronted her own Cooking Channel series Dinner At Tiffani’s (which featured an appearance from Mark-Paul Gosselaar), as well as featuring in Netflix series Alexa and Mario Lopez (AC Slater) (Picture: Getty/Rex Shutterstock) AC – full name Albert Clifford – was Bayside High’s star athlete and became embroiled in rivalry with Zack for Kelly’s affections (although the two later patched things up), ultimately ending up as best man at his wedding to Kelly. Where is Mario Lopez now?  As well as continuing to act, Mario, now 45, has also shown his talents as a TV presenter, hosting shows for NBC and MTV as well as co-presenting the short lived US version of The X Factor alongside Khloe Kardashian. Mario has also published several books about fitness and family, and is a former Dancing With The Stars runner-up with partner Karina Smirnoff (whom he also dated). His wife, Courtney Mazza – a dancer, actress and producer he met while starring in A Chorus Line on Broadway – is currently pregnant with their third child. Elizabeth Berkley (Jessie Spano) (Picture: Getty Images) Jessie Spano was the show’s liberal feminist and class president – although she was also the focal point of the show’s infamous episode in which it was revealed she had become addicted to caffeine tablets while trying to keep up with her studies and her school duties. Where is Elizabeth Berkley now? The 46-year-old followed Saved By The Bell with a raunchy role in the notorious 90s box office dud Showgirls – and she’s been in some pretty notable movies since then including The First Wives Club, Oliver Stone’s Any Given Sunday and Woody Allen’s The Curse Of The Jade Scorpion.She’s also posed for Peta wrapped in a dress of collard greens to promote vegetarianism, as well as appearing on the small screen in the likes of Dancing With The Stars and CSI Miami.The actress is married to Ralph Lauren’s nephew Greg Lauren and welcomed her first child in 2012. Dustin Diamond (Samuel ‘Screech’ Powers) (Picture: Getty Images/Rex Shutterstock) Screech is one of only two characters to appear in the entire franchise, including spin-offs The College Years and The New Class. Where is Dustin Diamond now? The 42-year-old went on to forge a career in stand-up comedy – and you might also remember him from Celebrity Big Brother in summer 2013, when he became the fourth housemate to be evicted. He’s not had the easiest few years though, having been jailed for four months in 2015 following a bar room fight the previous Boxing Day. More recently you might have spotted him playing ‘Harvey Weinstein’ in a bloody music video by TENLo – which sees the character get stabbed to death. Lark Voorhies (Lisa Turtle) (Picture: Getty Images/Backgrid) Fashion-conscious Lisa was Zack’s best friend on the show – although it was Screech who had romantic designs on her, all to no avail. Where is Lark Voorhies now? The actress, now 45, went on to star in US soaps including Days Of Our Lives and The Bold and the Beautiful, as well as movies including How High and Def Jam’s How To Be A Player.
