Purse School Board Shooting Ebay

Purse School Board Shooting Ebay - The name Ginger Littleton may not be immediately recognizable; however, her brown, faux crocodile purse is, after it made headlines last week when Littleton used it in a daring attempt to disarm a raging gunman at a Florida school board meeting on Dec. 14.

The famous purse has now been auctioned on eBay - for a charity founded by the hero of the school board shooting, security guard Mike Jones.

Littleton agreed to let NBC station WJHG auction off the purse on eBay with the proceeds going Mike Jones' Salvage Santa project.

Jones, who shot school board gunman Clay Duke, runs the charity, which reconditions used toys and bikes for children.

WJHG reports that the auction ended 7:55 p.m. Wednesday with a winning bid of $13,100 from a Virginia man who asked to remain anonymous. That bid was matched by Brahmin, the company that made the purse, meaning that the charity will receive a total of $26,200.

Duke had stormed the meeting to protest his wife's firing by the district.

He asked all women and children to leave the room, but while Duke was ranting to the male members of the school board Littleton reentered the room, then dangerously tried to disarm him, fortunate to escape unharmed.

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…
