Sports Apparel Merchant, Under Armour, has become the latest victim of a massive digital theft of sensitive information about tens of millions of customers. Company Reps disclosed Thursday that an intruder grabbed the email addresses and login information during a February break-in affecting about 150 million users of its food and nutrition website, MyFitnessPal.
The hacker didn’t obtain any payment information, Social Security numbers, or Driver’s License numbers, which means this break-in is unlikely to require credit and debit cards to be replaced or raise the specter of identity theft. Still, Under Armour says it is requiring all MyFitnessPal users to change their passwords.
In observance of Good Friday the following closings and changes have been announced for today:

* Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools will be closed.
* Garbage collections scheduled for today will be collected Monday.
* Yard-waste cart and recycling collections will not be affected.
* All Banks and Postal Service are on a regular schedule today.
This Year’s Baseball Season began with a Bang. Ian Happ of the Chicago Cubs hit a home run on the very first pitch of the year, connecting Thursday against Miami’s Jose Urena [Your-EEnuh] at Marlins Park. Happ tagged a 95 mph fastball and sent it far over the right field fence. The drive kept up a familiar pattern in the majors: big leaguers hit a record 6,105 home runs last season.

Are You eating hot cross buns on Good Friday? The Christian custom of marking a new loaf of bread with a cross to bless it and thank God goes back hundreds of years. English Easter buns as we know them today are said to have originated at St. Alban’s Abbey in 1361, where monks distributed them to the poor. Several bakeries in the area will be offering hot cross buns today and into the weekend.
