2. The military wing of Hamas has called off a 16-month truce1 with Israel after a series of strikes by the Israeli military. In one strike along a Gaza beach, 7 Palestinians, including children were killed when Israel fired shells at a spot on the beach, suspected of being a Hamas rocket-launching site.

3. A 16-year-old Michigan girl is back home from the Middle East after U. S. officials in Jordan convinced her to return to the U. S. Katherine Lester's family says the teen apparently2 ran off to meet an older man she'd been corresponding with on MySpace.com.

4. Meet the hardest working caddy (or caddie) in southern Missouri. Peanut, a Parson Russell Terrier, keeps track of golf balls and sticks, but mostly she just keeps the golfers entertained.

MySpace has outstripped4 competitors such as Friendster and LiveJournal to become the most popular English-language social networking website with higher traffic and over 68 million registered accounts. It has become an increasing part of contemporary teenage culture in the Western world. But there are also cases of adults using MySpace to find, meet, and stalk young teenagers.
