Hewitt starred alongside Sigourney Weaver in the romantic comedy film Heartbreakers and alongside Jackie Chan in the action comedy film The Tuxedo. From 2005 to 2010, Hewitt starred as Melinda Gordon on the CBS supernatural drama Ghost Whisperer, for which she received two Saturn Awards in 2007 and 2008, she starred on the Lifetime drama series The Client List from 2012 to 2013, was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for the pilot film. From 2014 to 2015, she starred as Special Agent Kate Callahan on the CBS crime drama Criminal Minds.

Since 2018, Hewitt has starred as Maddie Buckley on the Fox police procedural 9-1-1. In music, Hewitt released her debut studio album Love Songs at age 12 in Japan. Thereafter, she signed with Atlantic Records for her second and third studio albums, Let's Go Bang and Jennifer Love Hewitt, both of which were commercially unsuccessful. Hewitt's fourth and most recent studio album to date BareNaked was released by Jive Records and became her first album to chart in the United States, peaking at number 37 on the Billboard 200 chart, her most successful single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart was the 1999 release "How Do I Deal", which peaked at number 59. In addition to music and acting, Hewitt has served as a producer on some of her film and television projects. Hewitt was identified as the "number one reader choice" on the November 1999 and May 2009 covers of Maxim magazine. TV Guide named her the sexiest woman on television in 2008. Hewitt was born in Waco, Texas to Patricia Mae, a speech-language pathologist, Herbert Daniel Hewitt, a medical technician.

Hewitt grew up in Nolanville in Central Texas, has close kinship ties in parts of Arkansas. After their parents divorced and her older brother Todd were raised by their mother; as a young girl, Hewitt was attracted to music, which led to her first encounters with the entertainment industry. At age three, she sang "The Greatest Love of All" at a livestock show; the following year, at a restaurant-dance hall, she entertained an audience with her version of "Help Me Make it Through the Night". By age five, she had tap ballet in her portfolio. At nine, she became a member of the Texas Show Team, which toured the Soviet Union. At age ten, at the suggestion of talent scouts and after winning the title of "Texas Our Little Miss Talent Winner", she moved to Los Angeles with her mother to pursue a career in both acting and singing. In Los Angeles, she attended Lincoln High School where her classmates included Jonathan Neville, who became a talent scout and recommended Hewitt for her role in Party of Five.

After moving to Los Angeles, Hewitt appeared in more than twenty television commercials, including some for Mattel toys. Her first break came as a child actress on the Disney Channel variety show Kids Incorporated, where she was credited as "Love Hewitt." She appeared in the live action video short Dance! Workout with Barbie, released by Buena Vista, she played Pierce Brosnan's daughter in a pilot for NBC called Running Wilde, which featured Brosnan as a reporter for Auto World magazine, whose stories cover his own wild auto adventures, but the series was not picked up and the pilot never aired. Hewitt had roles in several short-lived television series, such as Fox's Shaky Ground, ABC's The Byrds of Paradise, McKenna, became a young star after landing the role of Sarah Reeves Merrin on the popular Fox show Party of Five, she assumed the role of Sarah after joining that show during its second season and continued it on the short-lived Party of Five spin-off, Time of Your Life, which she co-produced.

The show was cancelled after half a season. Hewitt's first feature film role was in the independent film Munchie. A year she achieved her first starring film role in Little Miss Millions, she appeared as a choir member in Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit. Hewitt became a film star after a lead role in the horror film I Know What You Did Last Summer, which enjoyed great box office success. Hewitt and her co-stars gained popular exposure from the film, she appeared in the sequel I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, though not as successful as the first film, took in more money on its opening weekend. She starred. Hewitt starred in The Audrey Hepburn Story; that same year, she was the "most popular actress on television" for her Q Score of 37. As a result of this, Nokia chose her to become its spokesperson, she starred alongside Sigourney Weaver in the romantic comedy Heartbreakers and did voiceover work in the animated film The Hunchback of Notre Dame II as Madellaine, the main protagonist's love interest.

Hewitt performed "I'm Gon na Love You" for the film. She starred alongside Jackie Chan in The Tuxedo, which received negative reviews from critics but was a box office success. Hewitt appeared in If Only and co-wrote and performed "Love Will Show You Ever

HD 140283

HD 140283 is a metal-poor subgiant star about 200 light years away from the Earth in the constellation Libra, near the boundary with Ophiuchus in the Milky Way Galaxy. Its apparent magnitude is 7.205. The star's light is somewhat blueshifted as it is moving toward rather than away from us and it has been known to astronomers for over a century as a high-velocity star based on its other vectors. An early spectroscopic analysis by Joseph W. Chamberlain and Lawrence Aller revealed it to have a lower metal content than the Sun. Modern spectroscopic analyses find an iron content about a factor of 250 lower than that of the Sun, it is one of the closest metal-poor stars to Earth. The star was known by 1912 when W. S. Adams made its astrometry using a spectrograph in the Mount Wilson Observatory; because HD 140283 is neither on the main sequence nor a red giant, its early position in the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram has been interpreted with its data and theoretical models of stellar evolution based on quantum mechanics and the observations of processes in millions of stars to infer its old age.

For field stars it is rare to know a star's luminosity, surface temperature and composition enough to get a well-constrained value for their age. A study published in 2013 used the Fine Guidance Sensors of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to measure a precise parallax for the star, employ this information to estimate an age for the star of 14.46 ± 0.8 billion years. Due to the uncertainty in the value, this age for the star may or may not conflict with the calculated age of the Universe as determined by the final 2015 Planck Satellite results of 13.799 ± 0.021 billion years. Once dubbed the "Methuselah Star" by the popular press due to its age, if the assumptions of stellar evolution are correct in the report, the star must have formed soon after the Big Bang and is one of the oldest stars known; the search for such iron-poor stars has shown they are all anomalies in globular clusters and the Galactic Halo. This concords with a narrative. If so, the apparent visual data of the oldest of these enables us to longstop-date the reionization phase of the Universe independently of theories and evidence of the first few million years after the Big Bang.

Most stars from Population II and Population III are no longer observable. Theories exist allowing for an older age of the universe than conventionally accepted, which can still accommodate the observed redshift of early objects and earlier radiation; some depart from the conventional big-bang/inflation model, such as the steady-state and cyclic models. To date no accurate, greater-age evidence from a cosmic object has been found that calls into question the Planck satellite results. Studies of the star help astronomers understand the Universe's early history. Low but non-zero metallicities of stars like HD 140283 indicate the star was born in the second generation of stellar creation; those first stars are thought to have been born a few hundred million years after the Big Bang, they died in explosions after only a few million years. A second generation of stars, the generation in which HD 140283 is theorized to have been born, could not have coalesced until gas, heated from the supernova explosions of the earlier stars, cooled down.

This hypothesis of such stars' birth and our best models of the early universe indicate that the time it took for the gases to cool was only a few tens of millions of years. The proportions of elements in such metal-poor stars is modelled to tell us much of the earlier nucleosynthetic yield, of elements other than hydrogen and helium from the supernovae of the locally-extinct Population III stars; some of the latter may be visible in gravitational lensing in looking at deepest images such as the Hubble Ultra-Deep Field. Like HD 122563, CS22892-0052, CD -38 245, HD 140283 has an excesses of oxygen and the alpha elements relative to iron. While the proportions of these elements is much lower in HD 140283 than in the Sun, they are not as low as is the case for iron; the implication is that the first population of stars generated the alpha elements preferentially to other groups of elements, including the iron peak and s-process. Unlike those other metal-poor stars, HD 140283 has a detectable amount of lithium, a consequence of HD 140283 having not yet evolved into a red giant and thus has not yet undergone the first dredge-up

Red Campus

Red Campus is the historical core of the University of Missouri campus in Columbia gathered around the David R. Francis Quadrangle; the area takes its name from the red bricks that make up most of the buildings including Jesse Hall and Switzler Hall. The campus contains 18 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places and area is nearly congruent with the Francis Quadrangle National Historic District; the Red Campus stands in contrast to the neo-gothic White Campus.
