According to Wikipedia:
RUTH JOAN BADER GINSBURG


She's an ASSOCIATE JUSTICE OF THE SUPREME COURT of U.S. A. . The only woman on the nation's highest court and one of its most consistent liberal voices. She's one of the eight(8) Associate Justices in the United State Supreme Court- which is being lead by the Chief Justice. As what we know that the Supreme Court is the highest judicial body of the United States of America. She is also the first Jewish woman to serve on the Supreme Court. Ginsburg has been the court's lone female Justice after O'Connor's retirement in 2006(the latter line is in complement from Wikipedia). This woman amazed me of her achievement and success when it comes to education and career. The sad news is as we(me and my husband) watched the news lately, it has been said that she has been into surgery today for pancreas cancer. In a statement, the court announced that Ginsburg, 75, underwent surgery at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York for removal of a cancerous tumor from her pancreas. The court said: "Justice Ginsburg had no symptoms prior to the incidental discovery of the lesion during a routine annual check-up in late January at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md. A Computerized Axial Tomography (CAT) Scan revealed a small tumor, approximately 1 (centimeter) across, in the center of the pancreas.
Born June 30, 1985) is an American Swimmer. He has won 14 career Olympic Gold Medals, the most by any Olympian. By the end of 2008, he held seven world records in swimming. Phelps holds the record for the most gold medals won at a single Olympics with the eight golds he won at the 2008 Olympic Games. Overall, Phelps has won 16 Olympic medals: six(6)golds and two(2) bronze, and eight(8) golds at Beijing in 2008. The sad thing is he was being caught of smoking pot(weed or marijuana). He was also being caught and held of DUI(Driving Under Influence) some years ago and apologized. More of this next time friends.. Lab yah! Have a nice day! muahh.. (~_~)'
