Houston Weather: Storms

Houston Weather: Storms - Today, it's cloudy and cool. Yesterday it was partly cloudy and muggy. We've got rain on the way later today and Wednesday. It's nuts. The good news is that the rain we get over the next couple of days should be fairly substantial, further helping the area recover from the crippling drought we've suffered over the last year. Additionally, things will cool down quite a bit and be downright pleasant for the weekend, with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s. But, for those who had gotten used to the same old same old, particularly last summer, or for anyone who hasn't been here long, these crazy changes are the norm this time of year. If you hadn't noticed, most of us along the Gulf Coast don't have what you might call "seasons," at least not by the colored foliage, snow blind standards of our northern neighbors. It is not uncommon for the city of Houston to have wild changes to our weather. Think of our city's weather as permanently menopausal. It's how we roll. Houston Weather: Storms

Lindsay Lohan to Feature on Ellen

Lindsay Lohan to Feature on Ellen - Despite reports, Lindsay Lohan won't be appearing on the U.K. version of "Celebrity Big Brother." But she will grace America's TV screens on Dec. 15 when she pays a visit to "The Ellen Degeneres Show." It's been a few years since Lohan has appeared on the daytime talk show. The troubled actress has been keeping a low profile when it comes to television due to her recent legal troubles that range from court dates and probation to a brief jail stint. Lohan will soon show off a little bit more of herself in a new Playboy spread, which hits newsstands next month. "The pictorial is absolutely fantastic and very tasteful, and will be accompanied by an interview that will let readers see another side of Lindsay," Lohan's rep told E! News.

Billy Bob Daughter

Billy Bob Daughter - The estranged daughter of actor Billy Bob Thornton has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for the 2008 death of a child in her care.

Amanda Brumfield, 32, was convicted of manslaughter earlier this year.

Authorities say Brumfield killed her best friend's daughter during an overnight stay in October 2008.

Brumfield says 1-year-old Olivia Madison Garcia was trying to climb out of a playpen and hit her head. The defense suggested the fall may have aggravated a previous injury, causing her death.

Prosecutors say it's impossible that a fall from that height caused a three-and-a-half inch (9-centimeter) fracture on the back of the girl's skull and the bleeding and swelling found in her brain.

Brumfield's father, Billy Bob Thornton, is best known for the movie "Slingblade" and his marriage to Angelina Jolie.

Diets For Weight Loss

Diets For Weight Loss

Every year millions of people try and lose weight through many different means. Some go on diets where others simply start exercising more. Both will contribute to weight loss if done right. But dieting plays the most important role when it comes to weight loss. A good diet with minimized calories will guarantee weight loss.

All About The Different Types Of Diets

There are many diets people go on. Some restrict all carbohydrates from the diet thinking carbohydrates are what is causing weight gain. Some go on high protein diets thinking it will encourage lean muscle development leading to weight loss and an improved body composition.

In actual fact both points above are true. But the fact remains, for any diet that wishes to induce weight loss, there must be a calorie defecit. This means you must be burning more calories than you are taking in.

This can be done by either eating less (taking in less calories), or exercising more (burning more calories).
