Wikileaks Mirror Sites

Wikileaks Mirror Sites - Don't expect WikiLeaks to go anywhere soon. Despite efforts to censor the site in the U.S., the whistle-blowing organization said that a growing number of mirrors are available.

"WikiLeaks now has 355 sites. Thanks to YOU," said a tweet Sunday on the @WikiLeaks feed.

However, the mirrors page lists just 208 of these sites. The page encourages people to create mirrors "in order to make it impossible to ever fully remove WikiLeaks form the Internet."

Last week, the whistle-blowing site began the release of more than 250,000 classified U.S. diplomatic cables. The controversial documents have caused diplomatic embarrassment for the U.S. government, and have made it hard for WikiLeaks to survive online in the states.

Most recently, PayPal yanked WikiLeaks from its services. As of Friday, no more donations can be made to WikiLeaks via PayPal. Prior to that, Amazon booted WikiLeaks from its servers, forcing WikiLeaks to find a Web host in Sweden. It is now supported by Banhof AB, which is housed in a Cold War bomb shelter.

DNS provider Dyn Inc also expelled WikiLeaks from the domain, pushing the organization to find a new domain, The site was also the target of two denial of service attacks in the aftermath of the release.

"Cablegate," as the ordeal has been called, has caused global political uproar, and leaders are calling for WikiLeaks head Julian Assange to be held responsible. Assange is now one of the most wanted men in the world. Last week, Interpol issued an international wanted notice, and Swedish courts upheld a warrant for the 39-year-old Australian's arrest. Both warrants stem from rape and sexual assault charges made in August.

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, 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…
