Paris Hilton Exposed & Facebook Suspends Peephole.

Yes Above is supposedly the profile of Paris Hilton created using her middle name Whitney. There are other people that were exposed using the App, Top Friends app by Slide. So if you were a Top Friends user, you will be disappointed today. Those juicy bits are gone!.
Until Facebook suspended the Top Friends app, created by Slide, anyone could browse partial profiles of anyone else on Facebook who had added Top Friends to their page. The security hole exposed the birthdays, gender, and relationship status of strangers, including Facebook executives, the wife of Google co-founder Larry Page, and one profile that seemed to belong to Paris Hilton that used her middle name "Whitney."

NBC News Host Tim Russert Passes Away!

Tim Russert, NBC News Host, has collapsed and passed away at work today. He was one of the people I enjoyed watching him on TV when ever I managed to watch TV.
My heart felt sympathies to his family and colleagues.

"Tim Russert, NBC News’ Washington bureau chief and the moderator of “Meet the Press,” died Friday after a sudden heart attack at the bureau, NBC News said Friday. He was 58.

Russert was recording voiceovers for Sunday’s “Meet the Press” program when he collapsed, the network said. No details were immediately available.

Russert, the recipient of 48 honorary doctorates, took over the helm of “Meet the Press” in December 1991. Now in its 60th year, “Meet the Press” is the longest-running program in the history of television.

In 2008, Time Magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Timothy John Russert Jr. was born in Buffalo, N.Y., on May 7, 1950. He was a graduate of Canisius High School, John Carroll University and the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. He was a member of the bar in New York and the District of Columbia."

Traxee, a social networking site for running women

Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) June 2, 2008 - Tuesday Creative, an interactive agency based in Los Angeles, announced the launch of the public beta of Traxee.com, a comprehensive social networking site addressing the needs and lifestyle of nearly 6 million women runners in the United States.

The site, conceived by veteran marketing and creative executives Beth Moore and Julie Running, offers a fun and secure space to connect with other women runners. In addition, Traxee.com contains essential tools to track members' fitness goals and offers growing content for women athletes on training, health and nutrition issues, and the latest in gear and apparel.

Moore was inspired to create Traxee after her own experience and perspective as a female runner. “In my early thirties, I was an out of shape chain smoker. I couldn’t even fathom running 10 yards, let alone a marathon. It was purely on a whim that I took a turn around the track at my husband’s gym one day…that was a lap that completely changed my life.”

"Traxee provides a unique space for women who live an active lifestyle", Moore continues. "For women, being physically strong, feeling capable and getting what we want out of our lives is interwoven with our sense of who we are as human beings. Being a successful athlete, regardless of whether you are training for a marathon, a 10K, or just working up to your first mile, is all about goal setting and achievement. Traxee community members support each other, provide invaluable training advice and share their experiences both on and off 'the track'."

According to American Sports Data (ASD) women's running has experienced a surge over the last 5 years and female runners now comprise nearly 50% of the running population in the United States. Nearly 6 million women are frequent runners, logging 100 or more days of running per year.

“When we created Traxee,” Running adds, “we realized there are lots of sports-related media out there for women. However, much of this media focuses on fashion, weight loss and other superfluous issues – we wanted to create a place for the women who take running seriously and recognize that fitness is a lifestyle. We look forward to growing Traxee.com based on the needs and desires of the community. Women runners are now a powerful force in athletics all across the world. It's an awesome privilege to be able to provide a space for women at all skill levels of the sport to share their experiences and support each other."

Founded in January, 2008, the Traxee mission is to join together, inspire and support women runners in all stages of the sport, from fitness running, to training, to competition. Traxee's distinctly female perspective on the athletic lifestyle reflects the essential balance between strength of body and strength of spirit. Through a fun, supportive environment of likeminded women, comprehensive content, expert advice, the latest product information & reviews and innovative interactive tools, Traxee community members can set, track, achieve and celebrate their goals "on the track" and in life.

Plurk your way through social relationships!

What ever you thought of twitter, either a time waster or a God given gift, you might feel equally floating on the Plurk's timeline.
I found it easier to follow horizontally floating snippets with any responses on them indicated by numerals. But if you are a vertical scrolling fan you can let you breath out! You can move to a that type of environment with a single click.
But Plurk has more definitions!;
People + Lurk = Plurk
Plurk is an amalgam of Play + Work: Play-Work
but this is much better;
Plurk as acronym: Peace, Love, Unity, Respect, Karma!
If you go to their blog to find some information, the only thing that you will find at the moment that they are so tired from hard working, they think they are hello kitties looking for naps.
But I suggest that you take a look and decide for yourself,

the new twister!
