(CBS News) A new book by a rising young author 전주출장안마 is blurring the line between novel and movie. Anthony Mason has the Fine Print:

Marisha Pessl’s new novel, «Night Film», begins on the jogging track around New York’s Central Park reservoir.

«I thought Central Park was the perfect place to set the novel in motion,» Pessl told Mason.

It’s late at night and an investigative reporter on a run encounters a young woman.

«She’s wearing a red coat. And it sort of keeps lighting like a flair,» Pessl explained. «And then when she decides to talk to her, of course she is gone.»

Within days, the woman in the red coat is found dead. She’s Ashley Cordova, the daughter of reclusive horror film director Stanislas Cordova.

Pessl created a promotional trailer — part of the intricate mythology the author dreamed up around her central character, the elusive director [click below to watch].

The 35-year-old author also shot four short films for the internet meant to build the mystery around the book.

«No one’s seen him in 35 years. He’s responsible for some of the most terrifying films ever made,» she explained.

Pessl even had posters made for all of them, including «A Crack in the Window», «At Night Birds are all Black» and «Thumbscrew».

«So I was very much interested in absence and the idea of a man versus a myth,» she explained.

Growing up with her mother and older sister in Asheville, North Carolina, all Pessl ever wanted to be was a writer. Her mother wrote children’s stories.

«So I remember she had this old Smith Corona typewriter and at one point she upgraded and got a new one. And so I took over the old one and would sit next to her and write,» Pessl explained. «I think I wrote either G-rated love stories [laughs] or I wrote … something very Agatha Christie-esque like ‘Escape from Death Island’. And there would always reach point where I was like ‘And then.’ And I know my Mom would be like, ‘Dinner!’ And then that would be the end of the story.»

Pessl went to Barnard College in New York.

«I would come here to do my work and also to write,» she told Mason.

She used a Hungarian pastry shop near campus as her refuge. When she graduated, she was hired by the financial firm Pricewaterhouse Coopers.

«You plot out your novels on Excel spreadsheets?» Mason asked.

Some panelists suggested reserving Ketek for second-line use in treating pneumonia

The nonbinding recommendations raise the prospect the Food and Drug Administration could modify its approval of the Sanofi-Aventis SA drug, 정읍출장안마 called Ketek, to exclude the treatment of the two lesser infections, which often clear up without drug treatment.

The FDA convened a two-day meeting of outside experts to discuss Ketek in light of concerns about its safety. An agency review found 13 reports of liver failure in patients treated with the drug through September. Reports of blurry vision also have been a concern. Doctors have prescribed the antibiotic more than 5.6 million times in the United States since the FDA approved it in 2004.

As CBS News Investigates reported on Dec. 13, there have been questions about the FDA’s handling of Ketek.

In an exclusive interview with CBS News, Dr. David Ross, who reviewed Ketek’s safety for the FDA, said he warned his superiors that the drug was, in his words, a «time bomb,» and was shocked last summer when the acting head of the agency, Dr. Andrew Von Eschenbach, told employees to keep concerns about the drug in-house — and out of the press.

Dr. John Jenkins, director of the FDA’s office of new drugs, declined to say what action the agency would take. The FDA isn’t bound to follow the advice of its outside experts, but usually does.

«We will be assessing the advice we received from the committee and discussing that very shortly,» Jenkins said.

The panel also recommended Sanofi-Aventis develop a medication guide to be given to patients, a move backed by the company.

Dr. John Edwards, of Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, Calif., and the panel’s acting chairman, called the two-day meeting particularly challenging, since it came amid concern that companies have diminishing interest in developing new antibiotics and increased interest in safety issues linked to the drugs.

Many experts fear overuse of antibiotics is hastening the increasing resistance of many bacteria to older drugs, making the development of novel treatments critical. Some panelists suggested reserving Ketek for second-line use in treating pneumonia.

The label of the drug was changed in June to add a bold-type warning about the rare reports of liver failure and severe injury, some of them fatal. A majority of panel members said that cautionary language should be strengthened and placed in a so-called «black box» to warn doctors and patients of some of the risks associated with the drug.

The FDA’s handling of Ketek remains under investigation by a Senate committee. Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said this week the FDA intentionally withheld information from FDA advisers when they met in 2003 to consider recommending approval of the drug. FDA officials said they would comment after reviewing his allegations, contained in a 20-page letter sent to the agency.

Sanofi-Aventis said the risks associated with the drug, also known as telithromycin, appear to be comparable to those of other similar drugs and that it represents an important option in treating respiratory tract infections.

«Robert isn’t that man on the tape.» Adam also told jurors the female that prosecutors claim is depicted on the video «is not a victim because she is not the girl on that tape.» Kelly won a Grammy in 1997 for the gospel-tinged «I Believe I Can Fly,» and is also known for songs such as «Bump N’ Grind,» «Ignition» and «Trapped in the Closet,» a multipart saga about the sexual secrets of a lively and ever-expanding cast of characters

«A child doesn’t choose to be violated and placed on a videotape, a videotape that will live on forever — long after this child becomes an adult,» Cook County prosecutor Shauna Boliker told jurors as opening statements got under way in his long-delayed trial.

Kelly, 41, is accused of videotaping himself having sex with an underage girl who prosecutors maintain was as young as 13 when the tape was made between Jan. 1, 1998, and Nov. 1, 2000.

Defense attorneys, however, told jurors in their opening statements that Kelly isn’t the man on the tape and called the video’s origins into question. The defense also told jurors that the female that authorities allege is depicted on the tape isn’t that person at all.

That’s a claim that’s also been made by the 23-year-old woman prosecutors say was a minor at the time of the taping. She denies she’s the girl on the video.

Kelly sat grim-faced during the proceedings, intently studying the jurors across the courtroom as he hunched forward in a leather-backed chair.

The trial has been delayed repeatedly since the tape was mailed to the Chicago Sun-Times in 2002. The newspaper turned it over to authorities, 함평출장안마 and Kelly was indicted later that year.

The R&B singer, who has pleaded not guilty, faces up to 15 years if convicted.

Boliker repeatedly referred to the female depicted in the tape as a «child» and referred to Kelly by his birth name of Robert Kelly. She alleged the singer took advantage of the inherent trust children place in adults, and that the female on the tape performed acts that Kelly «commanded» her to perform.

The videotape, she said, is «child pornography that was created, staged, produced and starred in by the defendant that sits before you, Robert Kelly.»

Boliker’s opening statement lasted more than 30 minutes. Jurors then listened to one of Kelly’s defense attorneys, Sam Adam Jr.

Adam told jurors that the videotape is «at best a copy of a copy of a copy» and that Kelly isn’t the man on the tape.

«Not a single witness can tell you that is him on the tape,» Adam said. He also said the FBI could not identify the man on the tape as Kelly.

What’s more, he said, Kelly has a «significant» mole in the middle of his lower back that has been there since childhood. But he said the man on the tape did not have the mole.

«There is no mole on his back,» Adam said. «Robert isn’t that man on the tape.»

Adam also told jurors the female that prosecutors claim is depicted on the video «is not a victim because she is not the girl on that tape.»

Kelly won a Grammy in 1997 for the gospel-tinged «I Believe I Can Fly,» and is also known for songs such as «Bump N’ Grind,» «Ignition» and «Trapped in the Closet,» a multipart saga about the sexual secrets of a lively and ever-expanding cast of characters.

Jury selection finished last week with prosecutors and defense attorneys accusing each other of trying to stack the panel along racial lines. Eight of the seated jurors were white and four were black.

However, the jury’s racial makeup wasn’t immediately clear after one juror was replaced Tuesday morning by one of four alternates.

The juror who was replaced told Cook County Judge Vincent Gaughan that sitting on the panel would leave her unable to pay her bills.

Archuleta delivered the final blow by singing John Lennon’s «Imagine,» the song that got him noticed in week 2 of the competition

<img src="http://image.baidu.com/search/http:%5C/%5C/img2.daumcdn.net%5C/thumb%5C/r658x0.q70%5C/?fname=https:%5C/%5C/t1.daumcdn.net%5C/news%5C/201804%5C/20%5C/edaily%5C/20180420093249300lebt.jpg" alt="817421, 74873117 49031329 3774 45″ style=»max-width:440px;float:left;padding:10px 10px 10px 0px;border:0px;»>In Cowell’s opinion — and judge Randy Jackson concurred — Archuleta’s opponent David Cook stumbled by not choosing a showstopper to sing in the final round.

The judges, however, don’t have a voice in who ultimately wins the competition. That will be up to the «American Idol» viewing audience, whose decision will be revealed on Wednesday’s grand finale.

The Fox reality show made full use of the boxing theme throughout Tuesday night’s match, which kicked off with ring announcer Michael Buffer crying out his catchphrase «Let’s get ready to rumble!» HBO’s fight commentator Jim Lampley was shown in clips throughout the show, saying things like «in a three round fight, you want to pace yourself.»

The fight analogy only went so far.

«You’ve gotta have a desire to win and you’ve got to hate your opponent,» judge Simon Cowell advised before the first round of competition.

But the verbal handshake before the fight was a friendly one, with Archuleta saying Cook was «awesome» and Cook responding that Archuleta was the most consistently nice person in the competition.

Archuleta, who won the coin toss prior to the show, had decided to go second in front of the 7,000 people at the Nokia Live Theater in Los Angeles.

In the first round, the singers sang tunes selected for them by record mogul Clive Davis, whose record company, Sony BMG, will hand out a contract to the «American Idol» winner.

Cook kicked off the round with a solid performance of U2’s «I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.» All the judges thought he was in fine voice, with Cowell calling his performance phenomenal.

Archuleta followed with Elton John’s «Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me,» which Jackson called flawless.

«Taking everything into account, Round 1 goes to Archuleta,» said Cowell.

The singers chose songs from the top 10 songs in the annual «American Idol» songwriting contest.

Cook broke out his electric guitar for «Dream Big» by Emily Shackleton and Archuleta sang the ballad «In This Moment» by Ryan Gillmor. Of the two, Cowell thought Archuleta chose the better song and gave the round to him.

The third round was the decisive one, at least according to Cowell.

Cook decided to go with a song he hadn’t sung before, Collective Soul’s «The World I Know.» He accompanied himself on acoustic guitar for the soulful ballad. Jackson said it was the perfect song for him, 계룡출장안마 but Cowell pointed out it wasn’t the kind of showstopper that would win the contest.

«You should have sung ‘Hello’ or ‘Billie Jean’,» Cowell said, referring to songs that had won Cook praise earlier in the season.

«It was the wrong choice in the competition,» Jackson conceded, «but it’s a good song.»

«The way that I was looking at it was, why do something I’ve already done. For the record, I completely understand what you’re saying,» Cook said.

Archuleta delivered the final blow by singing John Lennon’s «Imagine,» the song that got him noticed in week 2 of the competition.

«Tonight I think we’ve witnessed one of the great finals,» said Cowell. «Here’s the difference in my opinion: you came out here tonight to win and what we have witnessed is a knockout

The evening wrapped with a live performance of season 2 winner Ruben Studdard singing this season’s elimination song, Kenny Loggins’ «Celebrate Me Home.»

Tomorrow night, after the viewer votes are tallied, Cook and Archuleta will know which one of them will celebrate their win as this season’s «American Idol.»
