Many People think that you have to live in America to become famous, no. Jessica Watson is famous and she's a Australian. If your trying to be famous for doing something like hold your breath and pretend to be a chicken for more than 1 min, you need to get people to know your talent. Sart by making …a video of you doing it on youtube, then (when you get better at it) audition for a show like Australia's got talent. If it's to be a famous for your singing (Miley Cyrus), or Acting (Megan Fox). Go to acting classes or singing classes, brush up on your skills. If you already do (or if you've done that) Audition for a show like Australian Idol, or audition for a movie (i'm sure they do movie auditions in Sydney and Brisbane). If you don't get in to the movie or show i post another video on youtube. Try again next year and the next year. If all else fails just keep trying. hope that helps :D (MORE)

Barry J Marshall is the courageous discoverer of the cause of gastric ulcers in the human stomach. He noticed in biopsies of ulcerated stomach tissue that corkscrew shaped bacteria, now known as Helicobacter Pylori, were always present in the samples. He reasoned that taking a course of antibiotics …would cure the condition but this went against accepted tradition. Zantac being the drug of choice to manage the condition but not cure it. It being unethical to subject a volunteer to his findings he bravely drunk a flask of these bacteria and subsequently contracted a serious ulcerated stomach. In poor health and,after thorough self examination using endoscopy, he documented his condition and subsequent recovery and cure by self administering of antibiotics. Marshall was awarded the 2005 Nobel prize for medicine after a 10 year battle to get his original work recognised since it's first publication in the 'Lancet ' magazine in 1985. (MORE)
