Adam Schumann was part of one of the first Infantry Battalions to head into the brutal city of Baghdad at a stage in the battle where their enemies were far from easy to be seen. The troops would patrol the streets in their hummers and attempt to protect the citizens whilst also fighting the enemy.
Bombs were common place and they were not made to be seen before it was too late. Adam was one of the soldiers who often identified potentially hostile and dangerous areas before the rest of the battalion entered.
Many friends fell in numerous battles and when their time on the front had ended, the surviving men and women serving returned to the US and attempted to rejoin a 'normal' day to day form of life. Finally on US soil, Adam is greeted home by his wife and their two young girls. Saskia and the girls are delighted to have Adam back and arrange a little welcome home party. The love between the couple is still easy to see but Saskia becomes more and more aware that her husband is more distant than he was before. Going to bed late, waking early and often having bad flashbacks are a daily reoccurrence. Wishing to protect his family from the horrors he's experienced, Adam distances himself from his wife.

When she began working on her new comedy Snatched, about a mother and daughter who are kidnapped while on holiday in Ecuador, Amy Schumer only had one person in mind to play her mother. "It was always Goldie Hawn," Schumer says. "As someone who has loved her my whole life, to have her want to work with me and be in scenes with her is amazing. I never even dreamed of something like that for myself."

It was two years ago that Schumer first approached Hawn with the idea. She spotted her while they were on a flight together. "She was a couple rows ahead of me," Schumer says. "I just kinda creepily stared at her the whole flight." She finally got up the nerve to talk to her after the plane landed.

This is why Bono isn't a world leader...
Bono has decided that the best way to cripple ISIS and counter terrorism is by making them laugh. In his mind, violence doesn't work because it's all they understand, so why not introduce them to a concept they've never heard of before? Which is comedy. Apparently.

Yeah, we don't think the U2 frontman is going to be running for president any time soon, even if we overlook that's he's not American. It's like showing up to debate class, realising you haven't prepared at all and just rattling off the first idea you can think of. Regardless of how stupid it is. The only problem is, Bono is 'actually serious'.

Because Hollywood is making some amazing changes.
We like to think 2015 has seen Hollywood re-define womanhood with various movies depicting unusually interesting roles for women. Some, of course, are true stories or documentaries, but others truly mark a true progression in the film industry. Here are just a few of this year's movies that have done women proud.
Charlize Theron is as badass as it gets in 'Mad Max'
1. Mad Max: Fury Road - We haven't seen a character as badass as Furiosa in movies for a while, and Charlize Theron really nailed it as a shaven-headed renegade with a mechanical arm who had grown up around men. She rescues the five wives from her tyrannical boss and gives Max a run for his money with her ability to fire a weapon.
Because falling never falls to make people laugh.
Losing ones footing and falling flat is pretty much the one thing you can guarantee you have in common with the biggest celebrities. It's funny when your pal does it, and it's funny when a star does it. The only difference is, they're reminded of it for the rest of the year.
There's been some pretty epic literal slip-ups from the celebrity world in the most public places you can think of this year; on stage and on the red carpet. Here's just a handful of the best ones:
The former ‘SNL’ cast members were on hosting duty this time and they brought back a few familiar faces.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were back together on ‘Saturday Night Live’ this weekend, hosting the show’s annual festive episode. The Sisters' stars' return to the series had us all excited for weeks and these two definitely didn’t disappoint and what’s better is, they even brought back Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin!
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey hosted ‘SNL’ together on Saturday night.
It felt like 2008 again during one sketch as the current Hillary Clinton (Kate McKinnon) had a dream in which she’s visited by her past self (played by Poehler). Past Hillary had plenty of advice for her current self as she prepares to try and make her White House dreams come true.
Bring on another eventful year with 2016.
Is it just us, or has 2015 gone by really quickly? Either way, the year is coming to a close and it's been pretty eventful to say the least. Here's a break down on just a few of the things that have happened this year in the world of film, music and entertainment.

While she did slightly tease us, Schumer gave little away about the upcoming project at the Hollywood Film Awards on Monday evening, where she took home the comedy award.
Amy Schumer has written a screenplay with Jennifer Lawrence.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly Schumer said: “We just finished a new draft, and we’re just excited about it. It’s funny, it’s dirty, it’s real. It’s like us.” The project was first revealed earlier this year, with Lawrence confirming it would be a comedy where the two play sisters.

The song debuted on the comedian’s Comedy Central series and has stuck a chord on social media.
On Tuesday night’s edition of ‘Inside Amy Schumer’, a fictional boyband, that may or may not have been based on One Direction, performed ‘Girl, You Don't Need Makeup’. A song which may or may not have been based on, ‘What Makes You Beautiful’. As well as being pretty funny, the song also inspired women to tweet Schumer selfies of their makeup-free faces, using the hashtag, #girlyoudontneedmakeup.
Schumer encouraged fans to tweet their no make-up selfies.
The song highlighted the mixed messages often heard in the media when it comes to make- up and natural beauty. The boys began by singing to Amy, ‘You don't need no lipstick / You don't need no blush / 'Cause you've got that inner natural glow / Magazines say that you're whack / Girl, don't believe them / Just leave that tabloid trash on the rack.’

The ‘Yeezus’ rapper was pranked by the comedienne on the red carpet, but he didn't even seem phased by the stunt.
Kanye West had quite the evening on Tuesday when he attended the annual TIME 100 gala, where he was honoured as one of the most influential people in the world. Kanye’s night began when he appeared on the red carpet with wife Kim Kardashian and was ‘pranked’ by comedienne Amy Schumer in front of the world's press.
West is one of the cover stars of Time magazine’s 'most influential' issue.
Schumer threw herself at the feet of the power couple, but the stunt garnered pretty much no reaction from Kim and Kanye. Yes Kimye didn't even bat an eyelid at the sight of a grown woman falling in front of them and instead just continued on down the red carpet business as usual.
Schumer revealed that a fourth season of her Comedy Central sketch show had been green lit on Monday evening, which was confirmed on Tuesday.
The third season of her sketch series made its premiere earlier on Tuesday, and there’s even more good news for Amy Schumer. Comedy Central has renewed ‘Inside Amy Schumer’ for a fourth season, it has been confirmed.
Appearing as a guest on ‘Late Night with David Letterman’ on Monday evening, Schumer announced the news herself. Earlier on Tuesday, she confirmed that with The Hollywood Reporter. “I'm so happy to keep the ‘Inside Amy Schumer’ family together,” she said. “Excited and scared for everyone to see what we do next.”

Was Chris Pratt’s shirtless performance as Starlord enough to bag him a popcorn trophy?
With Oscar season finally over it’s time for the fun to begin, as the MTV Movie Awards are here yet again to hand out the trophies that really matter.

Best shirtless performance? Chris Pratt in Guardians of the Galaxy

Amy Schumer - A variety of stars were snapped as they arrived for Comedy Central's 'Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs' The event was held at the Beacon Theater in New York City, New York, United States - Sunday 1st March 2015
Amy enjoys her life in the big city with her comfortable apartment, wacky friends and driven job as a reporter for a men's magazine. As a young girl, her parents sadly divorced, and her father wasted no time in drumming into her that a lifelong partnership with just one person left much to be desired. So she's certainly taking her father's words literally and seems to enjoy the company of a different man every night (though never the full night); it's a life that she has no plans to change any time soon. However, something shifts in her consciousness when she meets sports doctor Aaron Connors on whom she's been commissioned to write an article. The pair hit it off right away, but after their first night together, Amy's left wondering if ending it there is really the best thing to do. It feels weird to carry on seeing someone after she's slept with them, but at the same time, she can't remember the last time she had so much fun.
