Singer Adelle Is Pregnant With First Child.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Grammy-winning singer Adele is expecting her first child with boyfriend Simon Konecki, the singer said on her official website on Friday.
"I'm delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me. Obviously we're over the moon and very excited, but please respect our privacy at this precious time," she wrote.
Adele, 24, and Konecki, who is divorced, have been dating since January.
The announcement tops off a whirlwind 18 months that saw the "Someone Like You" singer from the UK become a global sensation with her album "21." The album is still in the top 10 of the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart more than a year after its release.
Adele picked up six Grammy awards in February, including best album for "21" and record of the year for "Rolling In The Deep."

Lauryn Hill Going To Jail ?

Lauryn Hill Going To Jail?
After admitting to failing to file tax returns between 2005 and 2007, former Fugees star Lauryn Hill could be facing three years in jail.
Earlier this month she was charged with failing to file income tax returns.
She earned approximately $1.8 million from recording and film royalties.  As well as spending three years in jail, she could be fined $75,000.
Her attorney Nathan Hochman has said that she plans to pay back the Taxes she owes. Sentencing has been rescheduled until late November to allow Lauryn time to make the payment.
Lauryn had made a statement via her personal Tumblr regarding the non payment of taxes, explaining she did not pay taxes “when it was necessary to withdraw from society, in order to guarantee the safety and wellbeing of myself and my family.”
Lauryn has six children – five of them with Rohan Marley, the son of Bob Marley.

Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes split after five years of marriage.

Holmes and Cruise were once so lovey-dovey. ( Eric Charbonneau/WireImage)Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are divorcing after five years of marriage, reports Peoplemagazine. According to the actress’ attorney Jonathan Wolfe, “This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family. Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest." The Hollywood couple wed in a lavish ceremony in Italy in November 2006 with their daughter Suri, then just a baby, by their side.
According to TMZ, the couple has a prenup. Together, they are worth a reported $275 million, with Cruise earning the bulk of that.
Cruise, who turns 50 on Monday, and Holmes, 33, have not been seen together in public since February when they attended an Oscars party together. The actress did not accompany her husband on the red carpet for any of his “Rock of Ages” premieres and was noticeably absent when he received the Friars Foundation's Entertainment Icon Award on June 12 – a big deal considering he is only one of four people to ever get the honor. Her excuse? Holmes had to appear at an ice skating event in China. Instead, Cruise brought along 6-year-old daughter Suri as his date, as well as his 17-year-old son Connor (whom he adopted with previous wife Nicole Kidman). "[Katie's] in China working," he said during his speech. "The women are all working. So Suri is my date this evening. Suri, thank you. My son Connor is [also] here. You guys really inspire me."
Holmes, who has been in New York City with Suri while Cruise has been filming in Iceland, hasn't exactly been acting like a woman upset over the ending of her marriage. In recent weeks, the former “Dawson’s Creek” star has looked happier than she has in a long time, smiling for the cameras, walking around Manhattan, and hanging out with pals – which ironically is exactly how she was living her life before Cruise mysteriously swept her off her feet in April 2005, just weeks after she split from fiancĂ© Chris Klein.

Could This Be The Return Of Spice Girls?

It was a Spice Girl reunion in London on Tuesday when Melanie Brown, Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, and Melanie Chisholm came together to drum up interest in "Viva Forever," an upcoming musical based on the hit songs of the '90s girl group.
The event took place at St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel, where the Spice Girls filmed their music video for "Wannabe" back in 1996. The women looked better than ever as they gathered to talk about "Viva Forever," which will be produced by Judy Craymer, the mastermind behind the ABBA musical "Mamma Mia." The show centers around four women whose friendship is put to the test when their band competes on a TV talent competition show. The musical, which opens this fall, will feature hit songs made famous by the Spice Girls, who sold 75 million records around the world.
The Spice Girls formed in 1994 and shot to fame two years later when they released their debut single, "Wannabe." Some of their other hit songs include "Say You'll Be There," "Spice Up Your Life," and "Viva Forever," which was the inspiration behind the name of the musical.  Halliwell left the group in 1998 and while the remaining four continued to make music together, they called it quits in 2000. This is the first Spice Girls appearance since they all participated in a reunion tour in 2007-2008.
After the event, Beckham — who is now based in Los Angeles where her husband, David, plays soccer for the L.A. Galaxy  — immediately headed back to the States, but the Spice Girls were definitely on her mind. "On my way home!! Thank you @MelanieCmusic @OfficialMelB @EmmaBunton @GeriHalliwell for an amazing day!! "

6 Celeb Moms Who Make Their Own Baby Food

What's inside that little glass jar may seem wholesome, but when it's store-bought, do you really know what you're putting inside your baby's mouth? Former actress and mom of three Liza Huber, daughter of actress Susan Lucci, has made it her mission to educate others about the importance of feeding your children only the finest ingredients that nature has to offer (whipped up with love by mom, of course).
It's easier than you'd think. Some of Hollywood's busiest moms are already doing it for their little ones! We asked Huber to pinpoint six celebrity moms and offer recipes that they (and the little ones!) would love from her popular cookbook Sage Spoonfuls.

January JonesJanuary Jones
1. January Jones: Mad Men star January Jones' cutie, Xander, is 7 months old and likely ready for some new tastes and textures.
"Healthy, no-cook purees are time-saving ways for busy moms to provide healthy homemade meals for their babies," Huber says. "This black bean banana mash is one of my favorites, a delicious and completely unexpected combo that Xander would most certainly gobble up."

Denise RichardsDenise Richards
2. Denise Richards: At 9 months old, Denise Richard's beautiful new daughter Eloise Joni is old enough to eat many of the same things her big sisters, Sam and Lola.
"As a busy working mom, having healthy meals that can feed all three children is certainly the way to go [for Denise]. One of my favorite family meals is a simple roast chicken. It is a healthy, delicious meal the whole family can enjoy together. All Denise has to do is put a little of the chicken and roasted veggies into a food processor and puree to the appropriate texture for Eloise!" 

Tori SpellingTori Spelling
3. Tori Spelling: With children Liam, Stella, Hattie, and now a fourth baby on the way, Tori Spelling is definitely one of the busiest mamas in Hollywood.
"At 6 months old, Hattie is still a new eater," Huber says. "One of the best first foods for ababy 4-6 months old is roasted butternut or acorn squash. They are nutrient rich, easy to digest, and not allergenic. An added bonus is that one large butternut squash yields about 25 ounces of baby food, saving mom's precious time by only having to cook once and freeze the rest." 

Jessica CapshawJessica Capshaw
4. Jessica Capshaw: Grey's Anatomy starJessica Capshaw has two children and a third on the way.
"For a busy, working and expectant mom , easy-to-prepare meals are key to save time and stress. This muscle man stir-fry recipe is chock full of grains and veggies and is a healthy go-to weeknight meal for the whole family."

Jessica AlbaJessica Alba
5. Jessica Alba: Jessica Alba is playing more roles than just mom and movie star these days. The new mogul and mom-of-two started theHonest Company, which provides parents with healthy and non-toxic products for their families.
"She knows the benefits of homemade baby food and makes her own for her beautiful babygirl Haven. At 7 months old, Haven is ready for new tastes and textures. One of my favorite foods for this stage is lentils. They are nutritional powerhouses and blend well with lots of other foods," Huber says. 

Ali LandryAli Landry
6. Ali Landry: TV Host and SpokesMoms founder Ali Landry may seem super busy, but she still finds time to make sure her kids are eating right.
"Ali's baby boy, Marcello, is 5 months old and ready to start eating solids," Huber says. "A wonderful first food for a baby is pear puree. It is non- allergenic, easy to digest, and babies lovethe taste. It can also be soothing to a baby suffering from acid reflux. As an added bonus, cool pear puree straight from the refrigerator is very soothing on a teething baby's sore gums."

Am really impressed with what they do, if they can do, why can,t  we?

Economic Importance Of MBA Programs In Todays World.

Todays world has changed so much from what it used to be years ago. The economy is so bad that one can,t make ends  meet with an average job. Back when i was a child , parents do not need to work so hard to put food on the table or pay rent. As the economy in todays world is completely opposite of what it used to be , one needs to equip themselves so as to be financially stable.

Starting an MBA program in Denver is a number one step to a good financial future. MBA simply means  masters of business administration. An Mba program is not only needed in the business , economic or management fields , it's needed in other fields so as to have professionals all round.  Why are MBA degree graduates better for todays  economy?

Importance Of MBA Graduates  To The Economy.

Business school graduates are important for our economy because-;

More job opportunities - Business school graduates have higher chances of getting employed than non business school graduates.  It helps the economy if there are more vacant spaces to fill in the employment sector.

- Salary / Career Advancement  - An MBA degree will get you promotions and salary raise because you are equipped to be the best in any field. A salary raise and career promotion means more money to spend and more vacancies for people to be employed.

- Starting Your Own Business - Business school graduates are equipped with the knowledge on how to be the best in their field. Starting your own business creates employment opportunity  which helps the economy and society.

- Professional Development - Business school prepares and trains you professionally in almost anything and everything . Training you with qualities that you need to survive in the outside world. A society of intellectuals is the pride of any economy.

These and many more are the reasons why business school graduates are important to the economy and society.
