As the weather gets hotter and the pools become more filled we hope that you all take time out of today to remember the real meaning of Memorial Day. Today marks a day where we say thanks and praise those who have given their lives (& are giving their lives) to make sure that we all have a safe place to live. We hope that you remember the lives lost due to protecting the home front and respect them not only for today but continually throughout the year. We would like to say thank you to all those who’ve done service for any United States military branch and we’d also like to say thanks to those families who’ve allowed members of their families to join the military and serve our country. Thanks for giving your all and showing true dedication and determination to helping those who can never truly pay you back. Happy Memorial Day everybody and may God be with you all.

Doctors are now taking recognition of a new tropical disease that could be as worse as HIV/AIDS. The disease, known as the Chagas disease, is caused by an insect who bites you on your face. Known as the kissing bug, this insect is very dangerous and can create harm to your heart, intestines and esophagus. The bite can be fatal by causing an explosion of an enlarged heart or intestines.

Do you remember the anti-piracy warnings whenever you watch a DVD? Well get ready for a new warning screen every time you buy a new DVD. The new additions will be a National Intellectual Property Rights logo and the Homeland Security logo. These logos will reflect the new powers of the organizations which have began seizing many sites whom engage in pirate activities.

Actress, Will Smith, congratulated tennis player, Roger Federer, after winning his 20th Masters 1000 title by awarding him with a Men in Black framed suit. Smith was in Europe to finish filming his Men in Black 3 film and decided to watch the match with wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith. What a unique, awkward gift. However, congratulations Roger Federer on your victory!
