The "Wrecking Ball" singer said that she was scared to care for another small pet following the death of Floyd.

'Silencer' Google Chrome extension prevents 'spoilers, people and hashtags' on social media
April 16, 2014

If you've been avoiding the Internet so you won't find out what happened on Game of Thrones on Sunday, there's no longer a reason to fear -- there's an app for that.

Or, to be more accurate, a Google Chrome extension.

Thanks to the new "Silencer" extension, you can now stop spoilers from appearing in your Twitter and Facebook feeds by blocking keywords that you don't want to see.

Just type in a phrase and Silencer will block it. To make things even easier, the extension also offers "Mute Packs" for TV shows like Breaking Bad, Mad Men and Scandal.

According to Silencer page:

"Silencer lets you mute any content out of your Twitter stream or Facebook news feed:
- Avoid spoilers from TV shows and sports events.
- Mute co-workers or friends that you may not want to to unfollow.
- Mute tweets about #someconference, since you're not there or not interested.
- Silencer also works with any term or phrase you'd like to mute!"

Missing Nebraska Toddler Found Safe in Claw Machine
Missing Nebraska Toddler Found Safe in Claw Machine
April 16, 2014

A 3-year-old boy feared missing by his mother was found safe and sound inside an arcade claw machine in Nebraska on Tuesday.

Police were called to a home in Lincoln, Neb., on a report of a missing child, according to NBC affiliate WOWT. At the same time, employees at nearby Madsen's Bowling and Billiards found the missing child playing with toys inside their claw machine, where he became stuck after apparently crawling inside.

The boy's mother told police she was in the bathroom and that the boy must have slipped out of an unlocked apartment door. The boy was freed from the claw machine without injury and reunited with his mother.

'Soul Train' May Boogie Down on Broadway
'Soul Train' May Boogie Down on Broadway
April 16, 2014

The groundbreaking song-and-dance show "Soul Train" is chugging toward Broadway.

Stage and film producer Matthew Weaver, who helped create "Rock of Ages," has acquired the theatrical stage rights to the TV show and said Tuesday he's hoping to repeat his success by turning "Soul Train" into a show that attracts both die-hard Broadway fans and those who usually avoid Times Square.

"I'm nervous and I'm humbled and I'm excited," said Weaver, who heads the production company MediaWeaver Entertainment. "I do think we're the right people to do it because I think it's got to have that spirit of `Rock of Ages,' which is part old-fashioned musical but also part party."

"Soul Train," with its trademark animated train opening, provided a national, weekly showcase for R&B artists, black culture and fashion, and gave advertisers an entree to the black consumer market. It later had to compete with video shows on BET that broadcast black artists, and eventually MTV and VH1.

The TV show, a sort of black version of "American Bandstand," featured such acts as James Brown, Al Green, Ike and Tina Turner, Hall & Oates, Donna Summer, Marvin Gaye, The Jackson 5, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Whitney Houston, David Bowie, Prince, Run D.M.C. and Destiny's Child during its 35-year run. Moves that "Soul Train" dancers developed spread nationwide.

Poster Mocking Kim Jong Un's Hair Vexes North Korea Embassy
Poster Mocking Kim Jong Un's Hair Vexes North Korea Embassy
April 16, 2014

A hair salon manager was forced to destroy a poster featuring Kim Jong-Un after he was left "scared" following an encounter with North Korean officials.

Mo Nabbach, who runs the M&M hair Academy in South Ealing, used a photograph of the dictator alongside an advert.

The advert said: "Bad Hair Day? 15% off all gent cuts through the month of April."

Mr Nabbach told ITV London that two men, believed to be North Korean officials, took offence and approached him in the shop in South Ealing Road.

"They took pictures and made notes outside. The Guys then came in and demanded to speak to the manager. They ordered me to take the poster down.

"I told them we are in England and not North Korea and told them to get out of my premises. "The salon is located just miles from the North Korean embassy in Ealing.

Target's Security Breach: What Happens Now?
Target's Security Breach: What Happens Now?
April 16, 2014

The Retail Industry Leaders Association - whose members include Target, Walmart and Publix, and run more than 100,000 stores, DCs and manufacturing sites - struck two partnerships in quick succession. First with the Financial Services Roundtable (banks and payment networks); the second is with the National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance (to share information and guard against cyber threats).

At The Lempert Report we see this as long overdue, and although it unfortunately comes too late to save those effected through Target, it could help ensure a safer, more secure future for retailers, customers and suppliers.

While the scale of the Target breach was unprecedented, they are certainly not the only retailer victimized. Data breaches have occurred in recent years at Neiman Marcus, 7-Eleven, Hannaford Brothers, BJ's Wholesale Club and others, according to independent reports by Bloomberg and Reuters.

So while retailers figure out the next steps, what will consumers be doing? Seems like cash may be the payment of choice. For example, new Kantar Retail Shopper Scape data says 9% of all shoppers and 13% of monthly Target/SuperTarget shoppers say they will "still shop at Target, but only pay with cash." Also, 11% of all shoppers and 12% of monthly Target/SuperTarget shoppers are "more likely to pay with cash going forward wherever I shop."

Consumers will probably pay cash more often, or choose payment systems such as PayPal that provide another layer between them and data thieves. For retailers that haven't been compromised yet and may be understandably nervous you may find that whatever precautions you take, consumers are already too nervous.

From Andrea Metcalf - Weight Loss: Are Pre-Workout Supplements Necessary?
From Andrea Metcalf - Weight Loss: Are Pre-Workout Supplements Necessary?
April 15, 2014

The benefits of post-workout nutrition has been researched According the the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, nutrient timing is a popular nutritional strategy that involves the consumption of combinations of nutrients--primarily protein and carbohydrate--in and around an exercise session. Specific nutrients needs post workouts of 60-90 minutes or more includes protein and carbohydrate combinations as well as other minerals like potassium and sodium. However, limited research abounds on the pre-workout supplementation or meals.

On a recent study of Cross Fit Athletes by the JISSN, there was limited improvements on lean body mass after both pre and post; however, keep in mind that these were trained athletes. The more highly trained one athlete is, the less improvement is seen from outside factors. Just as it's easier to lose the first 50 pounds than the last 5 for weight loss participants. In either case, if you are considering a pre-workout supplement, here are some things to keep in mind.

1) Powder vs. Pill

A pre-workout powder supplement should be mixed with water. This way your body will absorb the ingredients faster than a pill formulation. It is recommended to take a pre-workout supplement 20-30 minutes before exercise. Powders are thought to be absorbed at a 80-90% rate while pill forms for nutrient intake are only about 15% absorption rates.

2) They contain Stimulants

Most of the pre-workout supplements contain stimulants and almost all will have some level of caffeine. According to the JISSN, "The ergogenic value of caffeine on mental and physical performance has been well-established". But keep in mind a cup of coffee may also provide these benefits.

3) Some Other Ingredients you might see

They also can contain various nitric-oxide boosters, and electrolytes as well. L-arginine is converted in the body into a chemical called nitric oxide. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to open wider for improved blood flow. L-arginine also stimulates the release of growth hormone, insulin, and other substances in the body.
