Mom Sues Preschool For Hurting Daughter’s Ivy League Chances????

I know they say your school record carries on with you through out your school career…but suing a pre-school??? This mom is taking her child’s education very seriously, which she should..but pre-school is exactly what it says PRE-school meaning before you go to actual school. I think pre-school really serves as a day care that teaches kids to mingle with other kids and basic skills. Apparently, this mom is suing her child’s pre-school because it was one big playground??? @Ash_Bankz

Three-Year-Old Diagnosed As UK’s ‘Youngest Ever’ Alcoholic!?????

This story perplexes me!!!! What do you mean their is a 3 year old that is diagnosed with alcoholism!!?? The parents need to be shot!!! This is a shame! I don’t know what parents in their right minds would have their child go through this. I understand you rub a little alcohol on the baby’s gums to soothe pain but to have your child treated for alcoholism at the precious age of 3 is insane! @Ash_Bankz

Lady Gaga Designs Japanese Tsunami Relief Wristband

Momma Monster has decided to do her part in the relief effort to help Japan after they were struck with a 8.9 magnitude earthquake just today. As we all know natural disasters happen so quickly and can destroy everything that a country has to survive. I’ve we seen in the past with Hurricane Katrina and Haiti, those areas are still in desperate need of help and rebuilding…Japan will be no different. Gaga is one of many I am sure to come up with something in hopes to raise money to help. @Ash_Bankz
