Celebrities in Jail 2010

Celebrities in Jail 2010 - Chief among them must be Mad Max actor Mel Gibson.
He kicked off the fame shame game when tapes were leaked of him berating his estranged lover Oksana Grigorieva, mother to his eighth child, Lucia. He called his lover every name under the sun, including a whore and gold digger, before he allegedly threatened to kill her. The battle rages on in court but 54-year-old Mel says he ‘only’ slapped his missus.

Next up, welcome back George Michael. Wham! bam, he ended in the slammer after smacking his car into a London Snappy Snaps store in July. The 47-year-old was sent down for eight weeks for driving under the influence of drugs and possessing cannabis. After receiving a five-year driving ban, the singer vowed we’d see a lot more of him in 2011 but for all the right reasons.
Joining him on the bus will be Sugababes singer Amelle Berrabah after she landed herself with a 14-month driving ban. She was stopped on her way to meet a fitness instructor but was still boozed up from the night before.

The usual suspects also made an appearance.

Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton returned to their wicked ways in 2010. Lohan, 24, spent the last half of the year in and out of jail and rehab as she struggled to keep herself clean. After serving just 14 days of a three-month term for probation violations, she was sent back to jail and then rehab for the rest of the year after admitting on Twitter she’d failed a drugs test.
Meanwhile, Hilton narrowly avoided jail after accidentally revealing a stash of cocaine in her handbag to a Las Vegas police officer. The 29-year-old heiress originally claimed she borrowed the bag but later changed her tune and pleaded guilty, winning herself 200 hours of community service.

Following fast in their footsteps appears to be Miley Cyrus. The Disney star was shamed just days after her 18th birthday in November when a video was leaked of her puffing on a bong at her LA mansion.

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.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com 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…
