Simple Minds Are Back!

Simple Minds hasn't toured in the states for a while, but they are back. To promote the March release of their hits compilation "Celebrate," the band just started their dates in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Lead singer Jim Kerr said: "I'm confident in saying that the band has really improved. Some might say, 'Well, he would say that,' but the proof is in the pudding."

Talking about what fans can expect on the show, he said: "We're doing two sets. There's no support and we're playing songs from everywhere. A song from Empires and Dance like 'This Fear of Gods' or 'Premonition, there's every chance they'll hear that, although they're hardly greatest hits. A good Simple Minds show to me is if the audience hears the songs they expect to hear. The hardcore will be happy they'll hear songs they never thought they'd hear. We want to give a whole sense of the journey the band's been on and, within that, show that there's a chapter to come."

The band is approaching their 40-year anniversary and it's definitely on their minds,.

Kerr said: "The very foundation of what we do as Simple Minds has not changed one bit. We look for a melody, we look for a lyric and an emotion. We record it, we try and get it out there to get as many people to see it, hear it, come and experience it. That's what we've been doing, and not one bit of that has fundamentally changed. And thank God for that, because at least there's still something in this world that makes sense to us."

Nenah Cherry Is Back As Well!

Neneh Cherry announced details of her first studio album in 16 years.

The singer-songwriter has teamed up with London production duo RocketNumberNine for the untitled project.

Robyn will make a guest appearance on the album.

Cherry said: "It was a liberating experience, not endlessly trying to fiddle with the music, re-recording hundreds of times. These days it's easy to create any effect or sound on a computer; it is much harder to get the rawness I think we've achieved."

Her last full album was 1996's "Man."

Parent Alert!  Does Daycare Turn Child Into Monster?

Kids who spend time in day care centers or with a nanny are more likely to have behavioral problems including hyperactivity.

Researchers studied kids and adults who cared for them during the day-- whether it be a parent, a nanny/baby sitter or a day care center.

They found kids who spent more time in day care centers were more likely to be hyperactive.... while kids receiving more care by nannies or baby sitters were more likely to have peer problems.

Life Altering Invention..  Gadget Takes Your Drink From Warm To Cold In 30 Seconds

A new invention can take your beer from luke-warm to chilly in 30 seconds with a simple spin.

The Spin Chill looks a little like a small power drill. Just attach the beer can to one end, stick it in a cooler of ice and let it spin that sucker around for 30 seconds. It chills your beer 20 times faster than putting it in a freezer.

The Spin Chill was designed by two dudes that hate warm beer using a drill, a baby bottle and some duct tape. Science truly is amazing.
