Spring Forward – Daylight Savings Time

Daylight saving time 2011 begins at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 13. While may enjoy the extra hour of daylight in the evening, the time change has a bigger purpose. The brainchild of Ben Franklin, daylight saving time was originally created over one hundred years ago to increase hours of sunlight for more time to work and play outdoors. Today daylight saving time is used to conserve energy, but does it really work?

Target Re-releases 34 Designer Collections

Over the past five years, Target’s GO International designer collections have really enhanced our wardrobes without depleting our bank accounts. But the most coveted pieces from each collection have always flown off the shelves, and there are some dresses that we just couldn’t manage to get our hands on.

Luckily, Target has introduced the GO International Designer Collective, where they’ve given us a second chance to pick up dresses from past collaborations with Proenza Schouler, Zac Posen, Rodarte, Thakoon, and many more.

So here’s your second chance–the collection will be available tomorrow, March 13th at and in store until April 10th or, as we’ve learned the hard way, until supplies last.

Here’s a gallery of the 34 International Designer Collections...

Artists to Donate Gaddafi’s “Blood Money” to Charity

Gaddafi may not be winning points with philanthropists around the world, but his so called “blood money” could do some major good.

In February, the whistle-blowing website, WikiLeaks, exposed large sums of money received by celebrities who had performed for members of Muammar Gaddafi’s regime. Stars were quick in responding to avoid further embarrassment. Some stars have donated funds to various charities while others have either promised or donated additional funds.

Who are the stars involved and what did they say about the whole fiasco?

Heal the Bay, one of Southern California’s leading ocean advocates, is looking for volunteers to help clean up millions of dead fish that washed up in King Harbor near Redondo Beach on Tuesday.

About 200 city workers and 75 volunteers are working to get the fish out of the harbor. Redondo Beach officials estimate that the clean-up will cost at least $100,000.

Millions of Dead Fish in Redondo Beach

Since it’s Ash Wednesday tomorrow which we observe by abstaining from meat, I can’t decide whether to have seafood pasta or fish, then came this breaking news…

Millions dead fish, including anchovies, sardines and mackerel, are apparently floating up to the surface from the ocean floor and washed up in King Harbor near Redondo Beach.

Fish and game officials are still investigating what might have killed the fish. There are initial reports that a red tide, an algae bloom that sucks oxygen out of the water may have killed this large numbers of fish. But officials said they weren’t aware of any red tides, or other issues that could have caused such a massive killing.

Christina Aguilera Arrested

I usually stay away from discussing somebody’s private life but I can’t help to blog about Christina Aguilera’s continued mishaps. I’m not sure what’s going through her mind these days but she continues to mess up her life.

When Britney Spears was in her darkest moments, she was put on a gurney, placed on 5150 psychiatric hold, lost custody of her children, shaved her head, smashed a paparazzo’s car with an umbrella, flashed her private parts, and spoke in a British accent. She did not, however, get arrested.

Christina Aguilera just did. She was arrested by the police after flagging down her boyfriend for driving erratically. Her boyfriend was charged with DUI while Christina was booked for public intoxication. After her mugshot was taken, she was fingerprinted and then placed in a cell.
