After many years of being taught that the solar sytem consisted of: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, astronomers have now declared that Pluto is no longer included in the solar system. After years of debate, astronomers have named Pluto a "dwarf planet."
Ever since its discovery in 1930, Pluto has not only been the smallest planet but it always stood apart from the other planets. Pluto is 1600 miles in diameter and is smaller than the Moon.
Astronomers came up with new rules and criterias for planets:
- They must orbit the Sun.
- It must be big enough for gravity to squash it into a round ball.
- It must have cleared other things out of the way in its orbital neighborhood

Penelope Cruz looked stunning in a fashion classic, the Little Black Dress, while out to see Usher's Chicago Debut. Although la Espanola looks fabulous, she was recently quoted as saying that the images of superskinny models and celebrities that are portrayed on many of the fashion and popular are very dangerous to teenage girls who in turn develop eating disorders and insecurities comparing themselves to Nicole Richie- types. Bien Dicho!

The biggest rivals in baseball history, The New York Yankees and The Boston Red Sox went at it for 5 games in a row in Fenway Park. The New York Yankees SWEPT The Boston Red Sox, something that they have not done in more than half a century. The New York Yankees went from 1 1/2 games ahead of The Boston Red Sox to 6 1/2 games ahead leading the AL East. The players exhanged handshakes and hugs as they celebrated their victory. The manager of The New York Yankees, Joe Torre was very proud of his team and stated in an interview with Fox Sports that, "It was emotional. When you're sitting there, a manager's dream is to have these guys, their attitude. The guys that didn't play today - you had to be in the dugout to hear the support that they gave each other."
OMGGGGGGG!!!!! So I'm at work and someone tells me that Grammy Award Winning Hip- Hop Superstars OUTKAST are right around the corner from my job. I rush to get there and they are outside the Sony Studios in Hell's Kitchen just hanging out apparently waiting for someone/ something. I ask to take a pic and they were super kind and cool and posed...
I went back to my office and realize the camera phone did NOT save the pic... So I went back and they were still there. I told them what happened and they were sooooo cool and even chit chatted with me.
It was soooo refreshing to see real artist who were totally accessible, down to earth individuals without the 30 ppl entourage.... Don't forget to support their Album and Movie which comes out this week
There were a few cool things about the show- They have a myspace.com video award. The Choice Courage Award was given to a teenage boy named Jason McElvain who had been diagnosed as autistic as a child and after much perseverance was on the High School basketball and managed to score 6 3-point in a ROW! To demonstrate how hard this was they showed NBA superstars Lebron James, Dwayne Wade & Carmelo Anthony attemptin to sink 6 3pointer in a row- and NONE of the where about to do that...
None of the performances were really good. As bad a Kevin Federline's performance was the one positive thing I can say is that at least he sung live unlike another very popular artist who "sang live" last night.
Jessica Alba, was a presenter and winner for Choice Hottie- thanked her team of clothes, hair stylist, make up artist, and the air brush artist that made her look the way she looks. Thanks, Jessica for reminding us that celebrities are NOT PERFECT and their whole look is an image.
