The Craigslist Killer TV

The Craigslist Killer TV - Lifetime last night turned the Craigslist killer headlines into a much watched and even more talked about TV movie. The movie told from Ms Megan McAllister’s point of view is chilling, even if it didn’t have her consent. For those who don’t know the story, Philip Markoff a Boston University medical student and fiancĂ© of Ms McAllister met Julissa Brisman on Craigslist and murdered her. Markoff met Brisman on Craigslist, arranged a meeting for a massage. Police at the Boston Marriott Copley Place hotel found Brisman, shot dead and a massage table set up in the room. Brisman, who was 25 at the time, was pursuing a modeling career. Four days earlier a Las Vegas prostitute reported being attacked and robbed by an armed man at a nearby hotel, a stripper at the Holiday Inn in Warwick, Rhode Island reported a similar incident, as well as two more in the area.

Megan Mcallister, loved and almost married Philip Markoff. The question of this movie is, how well do you really know someone? Jake McDorman and Agnes Bruckner portrayed McAllister and Markoff. Even after Markoff was charged with the murders, Mcallister still planned on marrying him. She stated to the press; “We expect to marry in August and share and wonderful, meaningful life together.”

Markoff was arrested in upstate New York in the spring of 2009 for murder and armed robbery. He was tied to the crime through surveillance footage, fingerprints and a gun found in a hollowed out “Gray’s Anatomy” textbook. A grand jury indicted Markoff for first-degree murder, armed robbery, and other charges. He was also accused of the robbery of Trisha Leffler, a paid escort who was bound and robbed at gunpoint. An exotic lap dancer was also the victim of attempted robbery. It turns out Markoff had a gambling problem which propelled the robberies and murder.

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…
