Senile shield

Tokyo, Dec. 17 (Reuters): A 100-year-old Japanese man who was arrested after his car hit an umbrella held by a child said driving was his ticket to avoiding senility.

“Driving helps me from going senile because it keeps me alert,” police in Sendai, northern Japan, quoted the driver, Masaru Hori, as saying.

The incident marked the second time Hori had been caught driving without a licence since it was revoked after a hit-and-run accident in August, police said.

He was also involved in a similar accident last month, they said.

Helena son

Los Angeles (Reuters): British actress Helena Bonham Carter has given birth to a daughter, her second child with director Tim Burton, People magazine reported on Sunday. The baby was born in London on Saturday, People said, quoting the actress’s publicist. The couple already have a 4-year-old son, Billy. Bonham Carter, 41, received a Golden Globe nomination last week for her role as a ghoulish baker in Burton’s musical adaptation Sweeney Todd. Burton, 49, was also nominated. She revealed in the latest issue of Playboy that she became pregnant midway during the production.
