Rappers Kanye West and The Beastie Boys have teamed with over 100 other celebrities who will design lunch boxes to raise money for two non-profit hunger relief organizations. Kanye West, The Beastie Boys, Gwyneth Paltrow, Yoko Ono, Elton John, John Mayer, Zac Posen, Mike Myers and hundreds of others will create personalized lunchboxes, which will be auctioned off online to benefit the Food Bank For New York City and The Lunchbox Fund of South Africa.

Each Lunchbox reflects the artist’s personal expression, no two lunchboxes are alike and each lunchbox is signed and numbered. The Lunchbox Auction will go live on Friday, December 7 at 12:00 AM during a star-studded, invitation only fundraiser party, hosted by REM front man Michael Stipe at Saatchi & Saatchi in New York.


The mass wealth and extravagant lifestyles of such televangelists as Creflo Dollar, Eddie Long and Paula White are being called into question by a U.S. Senator who has requested info detailing their various financial records.

The space shuttle Discovery and its crew of seven returned to Earth yesterday (November 7th), landing in Florida after a 15-day mission that was among the most challenging in shuttle history. Discovery’s main mission had been to deliver the Harmony module to the International Space Station. But astronaut Scott Parazynski was pressed into unexpected service after one of the station’s solar wings ripped as the astronauts attempted to unfurl it. Parazynski carried out one of the most difficult and dangerous repairs ever attempted in orbit, fixing the tears during a spacewalk in which he went out further from the space station than anyone had ever gone before. The next shuttle mission is planned for early December, when Atlantis is expected to deliver a European laboratory to the space station.


In yet another toy recall, Aqua Dots, a popular seller that had been heavily advertised and appeared in many lists of must-have holiday toys, has been pulled from shelves after two children in the U.S. and three in Australia were sickened. The Chinese-made toy contains beads which can be arranged in designs and fused together when sprayed with water. Scientists found, however, that a chemical coating on the beads metabolizes into the “date rape drug” GHB if it’s ingested. The recall was announced yesterday (November 7th) by the Consumer Products Safety Commission after two children in the U.S. who swallowed the beads went into nonresponsive comas, and three Australian children were also hospitalized.
