“One day Twitter will become uncool like orkut, it will cease to exist like Soviet Union and the value of twitter followers will be like Rubles of the 1990s,” tweeted the 28-year-old. “Stop celebrating follower count milestones.

(AP) Life Time Fitness Inc. said Monday that it plans to buy back up to $200 million shares of its common stock, replacing a $60 million fund that expired on Saturday. Under the old buyback program, the gym operator spent $50 million to repurchase 1.1 million shares. The new buyback will end once the company completes $200 million in repurchases or on Aug. 16, 2015, whichever happens first. Buybacks can offset the impact of selling stock, make shareholders’ existing holdings more valuable and boost earnings per share.

Kris Jenner defends Kim Kardashian, Kanye West against Obama jibes

Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner

The Commander-in-Chief said in a discussion with Kindle last week that he bemoaned the recent “shift in culture” , saying: “Kids weren’t monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing or where Kanye West was going on vacation and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success.” Rex Features / Matt Baron/BEI Jenner used a segment on her talk show Kris to respond to Obama’s remarks, which also saw him saying that people never used to aspire to 10,000-square-foot homes. “I http://www.kimkardashiansuperstar.org/kanye-west-gives-kim-kardashian-the-assurance-she-needs-to-succeed/ read this and I thought, ‘Wow’,” Jenner said. “I mean, it’s really great that people aspire to get a great job, and I too wanted that when I was growing up and I graduated from high school and I really wanted to work hard and succeed. But I wasn’t aware that you could only set the bar so high and that we could only dream so big. I was taught, ‘Dream big, work hard, and you could have whatever you wanted’.” Jenner continued with some sarcastic comments about Obama’s house remarks, saying: “I thought, ‘Wow, I bet the president has some friends with 10,000-square-foot houses, and you probably wouldn’t mind going over there, Mr President, when you were asking them to have a party for you when you were campaigning for dollars to run for president’.” PA Images / AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster President Barack Obama. The self-confessed momager admitted that she finds it “odd” that Obama chose to criticise Kardashian and West, saying: “Kanye West, first of all, doesn’t go on vacation. Ever.

During the KUWTK episode on August 11, Kris was seen telling Bruce Jenner that Kim and Kanye’s home wouldn’t be ready until February, Hollywoodlife reports. Isn’t that a little long for so many people to be living under one roof? However, with Kendall and Kylie Jenner reportedly spending a lot of their time at the family’s Malibu beach house along with Bruce who is said to have bought the other home to have some more “independence”, there’s obviously a little more room for the trio in the Kardashian household. It was recently reported that Kim and Kanye had also splashed out a whopping 1 million on more security, including a military style car, so that they can all drive round Los Angeles together, along with baby North. According to The Daily Star, Kanye has allegedly commisioned a 250,000 Chevrolet Kodiak based on the model known as “Limo One” in which President Obama rides.

Kim Kardashian, Kanye West still turning down offers for first photos of daughter North West: report

The couple may be looking to take a cue from pals Beyoncé and Jay Z for their reveal, turning to social media and doing it themselves.

Kim Kardashian is messing with the media the same way it messes with her. That is, if the media were in the second grade, or a nearly 2-month-old child. The ” Keeping Up With the Kardashians ” star, who has shielded herself from public view since the June 15 birth of her daughter with rapper Kanye West , popped out of her quarantine Tuesday in full makeup to tease her fans, followers and the press. Also With a video. A three-second Keek video . A video in which she does nothing else but stick out her tongue. Rich. And neener, neener, neener! Just show us you’re skinny already, OK?! The new mom, 32, also attempted to bamboozle fans last week with a “faux” appearance on her mom Kris Jenner’s daytime talk show. She and Jenner led fans to believe that she would be a guestonthe show and show off her post-baby slimdown, yet only her upper half appeared, and that via video message. PHOTOS: Meet the Kardashians “I just wanted to say congratulations on your new show,” Kardashian said.

Beyonce Tumblr

But Kimye are thinking of pulling a Beyonce and placing the first picture of their darling daughter on social media.

An audio coach tells you when to, say, turn up the incline on the treadmill (“push it”) or slow it down to lower your heart rate. But you don’t have to be an experienced runner. There are also workouts that will ease neophytes into the joys of achieving that endorphin rush. So will buying a fitness monitor or gadget actually improve your health? In one sense, it’s a self-selecting group in that anyone who buys such a device is already seriously motivated to improve their fitness level. And for those buyers, each of these devices will help. The trick is to develop healthy habits and stick with a fitness routine.
