50 Cent Burglary Suspect Charged in Shooting

50 Cent Burglary Suspect Charged in Shooting - Alex Hernandez, one of the two men arrested for burglarizing 50 Cent's house earlier this week, was nabbed on attempted murder charges Wednesday (Dec. 22). According to police in New Britain, Conn., Hernandez, 19, was wanted in connection to a double shooting in New Britain that occurred back in October. Two men were injured during the incident.

Following his arrest at 50's estate, Hernandez was charged with burglary and criminal trespassing, and was later turned over to local police to face warrants for attempted murder and first-degree assault for the shooting. He has since been arraigned on attempted murder charges and is currently being held on $700,000 bond.

The teenager, alongside his accomplice, Santos Padilla, was apprehended in 50's mansion Tuesday (Dec. 21) after officers received a tip earlier that morning. Upon pulling up to the 50,000 square-foot estate, officers noticed an unidentified vehicle in the driveway, prompting further investigation. While Padilla was apprehended in one area of the house, Hernandez was found in the rapper's closet drinking a bottle of wine, boosted from the Queens native's collection. He will be arraigned on burglary charges at a later date.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
