Melody Morales: Former Hooters Girl Sues Hawaiian Tropic Zone

Former Hooters girl Melody Morales (with mixed Dominican and Puerto Rican background) sued Hawaiian Tropic Zone recently for discrimination before the Manhattan Supreme Court. According to Morales, she was denied a job as a bikini-clad bar girl just because she doesn't speak white. She has Latina accent.

Dubbed as "the hottest place on earth" by critics, Hawaiian Tropic Zone is operated by Riese Organization. The restaurant is spread across three floors, with 16,000 square feet land area. It became popular as a party place with its two-story waterfall, a setting that "tantalizes the senses" and menu favorites hung barbecue ribs and crispy chicken lollipops.

Discrimination is a very disturbing issue that affects millions of people worldwide. In most cases, women end up victims. Now I wonder where the court's favor goes to.

Dakota Fanning for Twilight | New Moon Cast Includes Dakota Fanning | Dakota Fanning as Jane in New Moon

Could it be true that Dakota Fanning is being offered a role in Twilight? Rumors had it that Fanning will be given the role of Jane in New Moon, the second book of the Twilight Series by best-selling author Stephenie Meyer. For the uninitiated, Jane is a powerful vampire serving as guard for the vampire royalty known as Volturis.

In one of her interviews, Fanning said she was interested in the role.I'm sure she can give justice to the role of Jane. We all know how good a child actress she's been in the past and this is her chance to prove herself once again, this time as a mature actress.

Antartica Weather Updates | Ice Melting Fast in Antartica | New Antartica Research

A press release that came out yesterday from the University of Washington has an alarming claim -- Antartica is warming faster than in the last five decades. The research shows that much of Antarctica has been warming at a faster rate comparable to the rest of the world. For one, the warming in West Antarctica is greater than the cooling in East Antarctica as confirmed by Earth and Space Sciences Professor Eric Steig of the University of Washington.

Antartica News, Antartica Findings, World Concern, Global Warming

According to the press release, the researchers devised a statistical technique that uses data from satellites and from Antarctic weather stations to make a new estimate of temperature trends. They found out that "warming in West Antarctica exceeded one-tenth of a degree Celsius per decade for the last 50 years and more than offset the cooling in East Antarctica."

If that is so, then global warming will surely be a major cause of concern this year. We need to do something about it, people. While it's not too late.

Read Obama's Letter to His Two Daughters Online | What Obama Wants for Every Child in America

Before having been sworn in as President last Wednesday, H.E. Barack Obama wrote a touching and inspiring letter to his two daughters, Malia and Sasha. Read the letter with caution as you might end up smiling and reflecting on your own purpose in life. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Obama family, First Family, United States, White House

The Obama Family

Dear Malia and Sasha,

I know that you've both had a lot of fun these last two years on the campaign trail, going to picnics and parades and state fairs, eating all sorts of junk food your mother and I probably shouldn't have let you have. But I also know that it hasn't always been easy for you and Mom, and that as excited as you both are about that new puppy, it doesn't make up for all the time we've been apart. I know how much I've missed these past two years, and today I want to tell you a little more about why I decided to take our family on this journey.

When I was a young man, I thought life was all about me—about how I'd make my way in the world, become successful, and get the things I want. But then the two of you came into my world with all your curiosity and mischief and those smiles that never fail to fill my heart and light up my day. And suddenly, all my big plans for myself didn't seem so important anymore. I soon found that the greatest joy in my life was the joy I saw in yours. And I realized that my own life wouldn't count for much unless I was able to ensure that you had every opportunity for happiness and fulfillment in yours. In the end, girls, that's why I ran for President: because of what I want for you and for every child in this nation.

I want all our children to go to schools worthy of their potential—schools that challenge them, inspire them, and instill in them a sense of wonder about the world around them. I want them to have the chance to go to college—even if their parents aren't rich. And I want them to get good jobs: jobs that pay well and give them benefits like health care, jobs that let them spend time with their own kids and retire with dignity.

I want us to push the boundaries of discovery so that you'll live to see new technologies and inventions that improve our lives and make our planet cleaner and safer. And I want us to push our own human boundaries to reach beyond the divides of race and region, gender and religion that keep us from seeing the best in each other.

Sometimes we have to send our young men and women into war and other dangerous situations to protect our country—but when we do, I want to make sure that it is only for a very good reason, that we try our best to settle our differences with others peacefully, and that we do everything possible to keep our servicemen and women safe. And I want every child to understand that the blessings these brave Americans fight for are not free—that with the great privilege of being a citizen of this nation comes great responsibility.

That was the lesson your grandmother tried to teach me when I was your age, reading me the opening lines of the Declaration of Independence and telling me about the men and women who marched for equality because they believed those words put to paper two centuries ago should mean something.

She helped me understand that America is great not because it is perfect but because it can always be made better—and that the unfinished work of perfecting our union falls to each of us. It's a charge we pass on to our children, coming closer with each new generation to what we know America should be.

I hope both of you will take up that work, righting the wrongs that you see and working to give others the chances you've had. Not just because you have an obligation to give something back to this country that has given our family so much—although you do have that obligation. But because you have an obligation to yourself. Because it is only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you will realize your true potential.

These are the things I want for you—to grow up in a world with no limits on your dreams and no achievements beyond your reach, and to grow into compassionate, committed women who will help build that world. And I want every child to have the same chances to learn and dream and grow and thrive that you girls have. That's why I've taken our family on this great adventure.

I am so proud of both of you. I love you more than you can ever know. And I am grateful every day for your patience, poise, grace, and humor as we prepare to start our new life together in the White House.

Love, Dad
