no title

Wow. Meanwhile we can't even get a look at Donald Trump's tax returns.

Emory University has just made public nine very personal letters written by Barack Obama to his girlfriend Alexandra McNear from 1982 to 1984.

The couple met when they were both students at Occidental College and attempted to keep their relationship going long-distance when Barack transferred across the country to Columbia University.

While the letters serve as a fascinating chronicle for historians of Obama's time as a college student and recent graduate just getting started at Business International, they're also insanely personal, revealing details of a romance long before Michelle Obama!

For instance, he describes a vivid memory of a moment they spent cuddling at a friend's home:

We're glad she's by her granddaughter's side.

Cissy Houston has arrived at the Emory University Hospital this past Friday afternoon to be by Bobbi Kristina's side.

Cissy didn't go there alone though as she was accompanied by a large party who were observed to be "composed" and were "formally dressed."

The grandmother has joined Bobbi's father Bobby Brown and other members of the family who have been in the ICU unit with Bobbi Kristina all week long.

Bobbi Kristina is still unresponsive and need a ventilator to breathe, but the family does not seem ready to give up on Whitney Houston's only daughter.

We're praying for Bobbi Kristina and a ton of celebrities have expressed their support of the young lady, as well.

We're glad her whole family is with her now!

Scientists Predicting What Songs Will Be Radio Hits Through Brain Responses!

scientists can predict songs success

Knowledge is power…and potentially profitable!

Scientists at Emory University are doing studies on teens listening to new tunes, and they've discovered brain responses that could help predict the commercial success of songs.

According to the scientists, "at the level of cells and synapses, teen-age brains simply find some songs more rewarding to hear, even when the listeners say they don't like the tunes on questionnaires and surveys." Fascinating!

Here's what neuro-economist Gregory Berns had to say about the study:

"The punch line is that brain responses correlated with units sold."

And here's what Stanford University marketing professor Baba Shiv had to say about it:

"This research shows that the brain activation is able to predict what music is going to become popular two or three years from now. We have to wake up to the notion that these instinctual brain functions can have predictive value."

Very cool! This could open up lots of new jobs that never existed before! Def Jam with their own in-house scientists? It's the future! LOLz.

What do U think about this? Will scientists become increasingly involved in predicting radio hits?
