This chick is 115 lb, and can lift twice her weight


Holy jeez, Britney Spears is writing a book.

Britney Spears is allegedly planning to lift the lid on exes Justin Timberlake and Kevin Federline in a tell-all book.

The singer is said to be "hurt and angry" about her failed relationships and is now set to exorcise her demons by naming the people "who did me wrong" in a sizzling autobiography.

A source told America's Star magazine: "Britney blames most of her problems with drugs and alcohol on the heartache she experienced years before, during her time with Justin - she couldn't trust him.
"I hear she's going to say she believes he constantly lied to her about other girls and that destroyed her self-esteem. She also felt he became mean toward the end of their relationship, she said he called her fat and told her she'd need to lose weight before he would have sex with her.

"When Justin learns about this book, he's going to be p***ed."

Sources also claim the book may reveal the singer and mother-of-two contemplated suicide when she realised husband Kevin Federline was using her for fame and money.

The book will also allegedly expose Britney's mother, 51-year-old Lynne, as the person she blames the most for everything that has gone wrong in her life. Full article here.

Women fight in the middle of a interstate? WTF?

Evening rush-hour traffic on a Minnesota Interstate Hwy. came to a standstill Wednesday for a most peculiar reason: two women fighting in the middle of the highway.

The bizarre scene unfolded when Zion Johnson and Jerusha Monger, stopped the car they were in, got out, and pushed, shoved and hit each other in the center lane of westbound traffic.

Johnson, 21, and Monger, 34, were arrested and booked into the Anoka County jail, he said. They were ticketed for disorderly conduct, posted $300 bail each and are scheduled to appear in court next month. It's unclear what led to this scuffle, recorded by a Minnesota Department of Transportation traffic camera. Full article here.

[obvious] Employee diversity training doesn't work

Companies try all sorts of things to attract and promote minorities and women. They hire organizational psychologists. They staff booths at diversity fairs. They host dim-sum brunches and salsa nights. The most popular--and expensive--approach is diversity training, or workshops to teach executives to embrace the benefits of a diverse staff. Too bad it doesn't work.

A groundbreaking new study by three sociologists shows that diversity training has little to no effect on the racial and gender mix of a company's top ranks.

Studies show that any training generates a backlash and that mandatory diversity training in particular may even activate a bias. Read the full article here.

iPod is the newest way for students to cheat at school

Schools across the country are targeting digital media players as a potential cheating device. Devices including iPods and Zunes can be hidden under clothing, with just an earbud and a wire snaking behind an ear and into a shirt collar to give them away, school officials say.
"It doesn't take long to get out of the loop with teenagers," said Mountain View High School Principal Aaron Maybon. "They come up with new and creative ways to cheat pretty fast." Mountain View High School recently enacted a ban on digital media players after school officials realized some students were downloading formulas and other material onto the players.

"A teacher overheard a couple of kids talking about it," Maybon said. "You can just thread the earbud up your sleeve and then hold it to your ear like you're resting your head on your hand." Full article here.
