President Obama, Bill Gates Pay Tribute to Steve Jobs

Originally posted 10/06/2011 08:00AM

The death of Steve Jobs has spurred reactions from around the globe, from customers to world leaders praising his genius and mourning his loss.

Among those paying tribute is President Barack Obama, who issued a statement shortly after Jobs's death, from pancreatic cancer, was announced Wednesday.

"Michelle and I are saddened to learn of the passing of Steve Jobs," Obama said. "Steve was among the greatest of American innovators – brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it. … By making computers personal and putting the internet in our pockets, he made the information revolution not only accessible, but intuitive and fun."

Obama added: "Steve was fond of saying that he lived every day like it was his last. Because he did, he transformed our lives, redefined entire industries and achieved one of the rarest feats in human history: he changed the way each of us sees the world."

Kelly Clarkson, LeBron James to 'Get Schooled' Across TV

Originally posted 08/14/2009 12:00PM

Kelly Clarkson and NBA supertstar LeBron James are teaming to promote education in a new special, Get Schooled: You Have the Right, documenting how the behind-the-scenes professionals who work with the stars became who they are today.

The special, which will air simultaneously Sept. 8 (8 p.m. ET) on BET, MTV, VH1, CMT, Comedy Central, Spike TV and Nickelodeon, will include flashbacks and new footage as it focuses on the educational moments that helped Clarkson's music director Jason Halbert and Latesha Williams, who works on James's marketing team, achieve their levels of success.

"Lots of young people run into problems beyond their control, like finances, that keep them from pursuing their education," Clarkson, 27, said in a statement. "At that point, it's easy to give up. But I believe it's important to continue to work hard and learn from everyone and everything around you."
