Michael Jackson is terminally ill and has only 6 months to live

Michael Jackson‘s pals fear the star has only six months to live, a shocking new report claims.

Reports in December claimed the Thriller hitmaker, 50, is battling a deadly genetic disorder and requires a lung transplant.

Although Jackson has denied the claims, American tabloid the National Enquirer says his health is deteriorating rapidly because of a crippling addiction to painkillers and alcohol.

A source told the publication, “It’s tragic. His condition is just so far gone, I’d be surprised if he lasts six months.

“Painkillers and booze have caught up with him. The only way he was able to cope with the stress of sex scandals and his roller-coaster life was to mask the pain with substance abuse.

“But the end result is an addiction that will kill him.

“His dependency on drugs dates back to when his hair was burned making a Pepsi commercial 25-years-ago. The drugs simply have ravaged him.

“He’s in really, really bad shape. He’s been sick for six to eight months and he just keeps getting worse.

“His muscles and lungs are deteriorating, and he’s bedridden much of the time. He can walk, but not for very long.

“On good days, Michael is able to take his kids to a bookstore. But he’s never out for more than an hour. He has very little strength…It’s ultimately in God’s hands.”

Cull Your Facebook Friends, Get a Free Burger

It’s a common problem for anyone who joined Facebook some time ago. You look at your friend list and wonder who these people are.

Burger King wants to help consumers do something about it.

The fast-food chain has released the Whopper Sacrifice application on Facebook. The app rewards people with a coupon for BK’s signature burger when they cull 10 friends. Each time a friend is excommunicated, the application sends a notification to the banished party via Facebook’s news feed explaining that the user’s love for the unlucky soul is less than his or her zeal for the Whopper.

The effort crafted by Crispin Porter + Bogusky came about after agency creative staffers confronted the too-many-friends scenario themselves on Facebook.

“We thought there could be some fun there, removing some of these people who are friends [but] not necessarily] best friends,” said Jeff Benjamin, executive interactive creative director at Crispin, and friend to 736 on Facebook. “It’s asking the question of which love is bigger, your love for your friends or your love for the Whopper,” he said.

Melting Snow Floods

More than 30,000 people were urged to leave their flood-endangered western Washington homes as snowmelt and rain swelled rivers and caused mudslides and avalanches that engulfed neighborhoods and roadways. Warmer temperatures and heavy rains were rapidly melting the deep snow that dumped on the Cascade mountains over the weekend.

Rising waters led state highway crews to close a 20-mile stretch of Interstate 5 last night, and the state’s three major east-west routes across the Cascade mountains are closed as well. Those routes may reopen sometime today, but authorities fear I-5, which carries 10,000 trucks a day, could be closed for days. The National Weather Service issued flood warnings for about two dozen rivers in western Washington.(Source)

Israel intensified its airstrikes in Gaza last night, reports CNN, bombing about 60 targets across the Strip on the 13th day of the operation. One of the targets was a mosque that the Israeli military claims stored weapons and sheltered Hamas fighters. The airstrikes also targeted 10 Hamas tunnels used to funnel arms from Egypt as well as “a number of armed gunmen,” according to an IDF spokesman.

Unconfirmed reports from the south of the Strip also suggested that an Israeli tank protected by helicopters advanced toward the second-largest city of Khan Younis. The death toll in Gaza has now reached 700, while seven Israeli soldiers and three citizens have died. Israel said today that it would once again observe a three-hour truce to allow food, fuel, and humanitarian supplies into Gaza—although fighting continued intermittently during yesterday’s stoppage.(Source)

The United Nations today halted all aid deliveries to the besieged Gaza Strip, citing a series of Israeli attacks on UN staff and installations. The announcement came shortly after the driver of a UN truck was killed by tank fire as he was headed to an Israeli border crossing to pick up an aid shipment. The UN said the delivery had been coordinated with Israel. The Israeli army has not commented.

A UN spokesman says aid shipments are being suspended until the safety of UN staff can be guaranteed. Earlier this week, nearly 40 people were killed by Israeli mortar fire outside a UN school. Israel said its troops had come under fire by militants using the building for cover. For a second straight day, Israel said it suspended its Gaza military operation for three hours today to allow in humanitarian supplies, but the truck driver came under fire before the pause, the UN says.  (Source)
