Warren Buffett diagnosed with prostate cancer

One of my biggest idols and a celebrated figure in American finance has prostate cancer

Warren Buffett announced that he has prostate cancer about a week ago and this has made investors in his company Berkshire Hathaway more interested about who will be the successor. This has been speculated for a very long time too. As for the prostate cancer, it is pretty sad news but almost 80 percent of men his age have the disease.

The iconic chairman of Berkshire Hathaway has been very candid about his ailment in comparison to Apple’s Steve Jobs. But then again, this is responsible governance shown by Buffett to ensure that the investors in his company do not misinterpret any frailty they observe in the chairman as a gloomy future for the firm.

Trespasser enjoys the life of a rap star in Diddy’s Hampton mansion

A man breaks in and lives it up in true bad-boy fashion!

Quamine Taylor, who is 30-years-old, was arrested a couple of weeks ago for being an intruder in rap star Sean “Diddy” Combs' mansion. He had lived it up like a rap star in Diddy’s Hampton mansion for as much as 24 hours and enjoyed himself by reportedly wearing the rap impresario’s clothes, eating the fancy food and even sleeping on one of the beds at the mansion.

The intruder has actually been a huge fan of the rap mogul and has stated that this was not the first time that he has trespassed in Diddy’s mansion. Taylor who even raided the bar at the mansion was taken away by cops on April 1 – and this is not an April Fool’s joke – after a caretaker at the house found him sleeping in a bedroom upstairs.

Wildcats defeat the Jayhawks 67 – 59 in NCAA Championship game

Kentucky fans go wild!

When star players like Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist have the fourth and fifth most shots taken in the game, then it shows how unselfish Kentucky has been playing. Anthony Davis made just one basket, but he was the MVP of the game with six blocked shots and 16 rebounds. Davis has had a seven inch growth spurt that made him from being almost just a guard at Cleveland State to a dominant inside presence at Kentucky.

I am very happy for Coach John Calipari despite the negative comments that many people have been making about his past and the vacated championships. Dick Vitale has stated what a wonderful man Calipari actually is with the community service that he does and his coaching history in bringing what was really a mediocre program at UMass and Memphis to NCAA tournament greatness.
