Adjust your files accordingly, for we can add the name of Demi Lovato to the list of friends of Mickey who have entered rehab.

The Disney star has checked out of her concert tour and checked into a in-patient treatment center for help with “emotional and physical issues,” according to a statement released by her publicist Monday. (See pictures of Disney’s teen stars.)

But the publicist was wary of describing the treatment as “rehab.” As the statement makes clear, “Demi has decided to take personal responsibility for her actions and seek help. She is doing just that.”

The 18-year-old was three months into a world tour with the Jonas Brothers — she used to date Joe Jonas, though that is in no way the reason for her being the opening act — and fans in Chile, Brazil and Argentina will now miss out on Lovato over the next few weeks, presumably having to console themselves with repeated viewing of seminal works such as Camp Rock and Sonny With a Chance. (See the best movies of all time.)

NewsFeed, of course, wishes Demi well and is certain that her ultimate aim — she told Reuters in 2009 that she wants to be on stage with just a rug and a microphone “and still be able to sell out places like Madison Square Garden, like Bruce Springsteen does” — is no more than, say, 12 steps away.

Why is that it has been almost impossible to convince most people and some scientists of the climate change? Continuous extreme weathers are causing great havoc everywhere, in least expected regions. 

Apparently, many are indifferent, others adopt the attitude of "whatever will be will be". So?

I hope these scientists know that the length of daylight or darkness can also determine when some flowers bloom.  Not sure how temperature can change that.

Gee, it is a good thing the ice age ended or those of us in the northern U.S. would never had experienced spring flowers and bees.

No matter how bad you remaining "believers" want this climate crisis to really happen you still can't "believe" more than science does as they have NEVER agreed beyond; "could be" and "95%" and "likely" and ....... 

Find us evil deniers just one one scientific paper or one PCC warning that says their own 32 year old comet hit of a climate crisis is as proven and inevitable and unavoidable as they say evolution, smoking causes cancer and eventual comet hits are.

You doomers can be forgiven this time for ignoring science's consensus of "maybe" but it certainly is a crime you "believers"  to still tell kids that science is as certain as you are that the end is near.If you want to love the planet with needless panic and fear then just go and vote Republican while you are at it.

REAL progressives doubt, question and challenge ALL authority especially ones that condemn billions of innocent children to an earthly climate crisis.

First day of spring conjures up a childhood filled with  the anticipation of blooming flowers, budding trees  and a haze of pesticides being sprayed across my suburban neighborhood.
The silent spring mornings of my  mad men era youth were punctuated by the roar of gasoline powered mowers and the sprayers dispensing malathion. These new miracle pesticides were the results of good old American know how- proving how man could take over the management of mother earth.The results...long lasting. Talk about March Madness!  http://wp.me/p2qifI-1DZ

@SallyBethEdelstein  New? Malathion is decades old.

Be kind to the air days" and smog "alerts" and "advisories" and "watches" are not measurements of smog, just predictions that a "Smog Warning" day could be issued  within the next 36 hours and most of the Great Lakes haven't had a smog warning day (actual smog) in close to 10 years now.  We defeated the smoggy 70's when a river caught fire in Ohio, CO2 has proven not to be the end of the planet and Rachel Carson would be proud of our environmental achievements. 

Life is good!
