Kim Kardashian is one of the most famous women in the world today. However, Kim became famous by sleeping with Ray J in a porn video. Recently, Kim Kardashian’s phone was hacked, and many scandalous photos of the reality star have been leaked. Kim had sexual pictures on her phone that were meant for Kanye West’s eyes only. The hacked pictures ended up on the internet, and the whole world got to see a lot more of Kim. The pictures were so revealing and sexual that fans were actually a bit disgusted.

SuperLawyers said that the leaked photos of Kim Kardashian were mostly of her big butt. She was also completely nude in a few of the photos. Kim says that she is not embarrassed, and she’s happy the hackers did what they did. We can clearly understand why. Fans aren’t surprised that Kim doesn’t care about her naked photos. Everyone already knows that she has no shame. However, fans are wondering if Kanye is happy that his wife’s naked body is all over the Internet. Actually, Kanye West is even more superficial than his wife. It is only a matter of time before the couple splits, and then the media frenzy will truly begin.

A Good Idea: Legalizing Medical Marijuana

Posted by maggie laurent on April 20, 2015 at 7:23 pm | Filled Under: Uncategorized| No comments

Medical marijuana has long been a controversial issue, but there have been a number of advances in its use as a treatment for certain medical conditions. In fact, President Barack Obama has voiced support for using marijuana as a medical treatment. Polls have shown that most Americans are in favor of medical pot reform, and they also believe it should be legal for other uses as well. Indeed, at least 23 states as well as the District of Columbia have enacted laws legalizing marijuana for medical or recreational use.

Obama says he will go along with a strategy based in scientific research and that deals with treatment of certain medical issues instead of any attempt to punish pot users. Medical cannabis can be used as an appetite stimulant and as an antiemetic which is used to help prevent nausea and vomiting such as medicine used to control motion sickness. It can also be used as an antispasmodic drug to suppress muscle spasms. Marijuana is also known for its analgesic effects and has been shown to be effective in treating chronic pain such as that caused by diabetic neuropathy, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia. Medical marijuana may be best known as a treatment for glaucoma since studies for that use date back to the 1970s.

Business leaders like Susan Mcgalla will have to determine how their corporate philosophy on marijuana’s use will shape up. Some people believe that businesses should not be able to drug test for marijuana due to it’s approval for medical use in 23 states.

Many hope that the unwarranted stigma associated with weed as a gateway to hard drugs will give way to the belief in the value of marijuana in medicine and other industries.

After she was found unresponsive in her bathtub in her home in Georgia, Bobby Kristina, daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown was placed into a medically-induced coma after she was taken to the hospital. She was taken from the hospital to a private, undisclosed location last month. At the time, there was no improvement in her condition. According to her father, she has woken up from the coma and her condition has improved.

Bobby Brown was on stage at a Frankie Beverly concert, on April 18th, at the Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie, Dallas when he told fans that she was awake. He also said that she was watching him onstage. Tina Brown, Bobby Kristina’s has also confirmed that Bobby Kristina had woken up from her coma.

Tina Brown posted a message on Facebook, adding that not only was Bobby Kristina awake, but she had been taken off of life support and was slowly improving. She also said there was a long road ahead, but expressed her belief that Bobby Kristina would be Ok.

Some fans and the media have expressed doubt that Bobby Kristina has actually woken up, because of the way the message was relayed to the public, and the fact that no one else has stepped forward to confirm that she has indeed woken up from her coma stated journalist and skeptic Jaime Garcia Dias (check out the skeptic blog at jaimegdias.com). There have also been no pictures posted of Bobby Kristina.



Senator McCain Attacks White House Over Slow Defense of Iraqi Cities from ISIS Attack

Posted by maggie laurent on April 17, 2015 at 7:48 pm | Filled Under: Politics| No comments

The sanguine terrorist group knowns as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) has launched a new offensive to capture the Iraqi cities of Baiji and Ramadi. The move represents further expansion of the group which seeks to put Syria and Iraq under their caliphate. Baiji is an oil rich city in Iraq. Loss of the city to ISIS would be huge. PR Newswire said that curiously, the Obama administration says that ISIS capturing the city of Ramadi would not indicate that his strategy to combat ISIS is failing. General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that Ramadi is not symbolic in any way. Its fall to ISIS does not affect the goal of the US defeating ISIS. At the same time, he did state the city would need to be liberated. It was a odd position given that it is far easier to defend a city than it is to liberate it.

Senator John McCain acknowledged he was by stunned by Gen. Dempsey’s remarks. McCain, who chairs the powerful Senate Foreign Relations Committee, stated that Obama’s ISIS strategy is feckless. He pointed out that many American soldiers lost their lives fighting terrorist in a bid to successfully recapture Ramadi during the Iraqi surge of 2007. The former Vietnam POW said it was beyond comprehension why a US general would say the fall of the city would not matter given the price in American lives that was paid to liberate it several years ago.

Music star Justin Bieber has found himself in trouble once again. This time, Bieber was involved in a skirmish with security members of Drake’s team at Coechella. Things got pretty heated, and there were reports that Justin Bieber was injured during the incident.

Drake and Madonna performed live in front of the Coachella crowd, but Justin Bieber was there merely as a fan. However, Bieber tried to get into the backstage area of the auditorium, and that’s how the problem began. Drake’s security staff did not allow the pop star into the back area, and Justin Bieber began to throw a fit when he didn’t get his way.

Fans at Anastasia Date have learned that the altercation quickly escalated, and things got physical. There were reports that Justin Bieber was placed in a chokehold by a large security guard. The pop star screamed and kicked, but he was removed from the vicinity like a small child. Bieber did his best to convince the security team that he was invited to the back area, but no one listened to him. Justin Bieber is a spoiled celebrity that gets everything he wants, but not this time. For more information on this story, visit, Yahoo!

Rap star Drake recently performed as the headline act of the Coachella Music Festival. Drake’s performance was masterful, and the fans of the event enjoyed his music. However,  according to Dan Newlin, something shocking would soon take place.

Drake seemed shocked, and many fans have since joked about the situation. People said that Drake was disgusted during the make out session. However, Drake has since responded to the rumors. The rap superstar stated that he was honored to share a kiss with the Queen of pop. Drake also apologized for his initial reaction to the kiss, and he says that he was completely thrown off by the moment.

Madonna is in her late fifties, and maybe she isn’t the sex symbol that she once was. Nonetheless, the incident has taken over the internet.

The World Needs A Game Of Thrones

Posted by maggie laurent on April 9, 2015 at 6:45 pm | Filled Under: News| No comments

 

A Game of Thrones is set to make its epic return later this month, and it seems that people cannot wait. The series is one of the most successful and popular shows of all time. A Game of Thrones has become must see TV for all. It appears that media sites are eagerly awaiting the return as well. The show will give entertainment writers valuable content to cover each week. However, sites like Rollingstone and Buzzfeed have already begun their Game of Thrones campaign.

Recently, Rollingstone posted an article that compares the characters of Westeros to those in power in the United States government. Joffrey Baratheon was compared to George W. Bush, and that may or may not offend some people. Joffrey was the most evil character that the world of Westeros had ever seen. He was a young king that earned his position because of the death of his father. Joffrey started countless wars, and he caused the death of millions. I guess there are some similarities between Joffrey and Bush if you really think about it.

The Rollingstone article continued its comparisons said AnastasiaDate. However, the funniest one was the comparison of Sarah Palin to the evil undead creature known as the White Walker. Also, Tyrion Lannister was compared to Bill Clinton, and Mance Rayder was compared to Rand Paul. I think it’s safe to say that the world quickly needs the return of a Game of Thrones.

Last night, President Obama surprised many news media observers by traveling aboard Air Force One to a previously unannounced stop in Jamaica. He met in Kingston with local government officials and the U. S. Ambassador, and also took some time to make a surprise after hours visit to the Bob Marley home in Kingston. The late reggae musician’s residence has been turned into a museum. “One Love” played in the background as the United States President toured the premises and admired singer Bob Marley’s trophies displayed in the den.

According to Marcio Alaor BMG, the tour guide Natasha Clark showed the President through the museum. President Obama was quoted as telling her: “What a wonderful tour, I still have all the albums.”

President Obama will depart from Jamaica to attend the Summit of the Americas meeting, where the United States is expected to face criticism from Venezuela’s strongman Nicolas Maduro over its use of economic sanctions. Cuban President Paul Castro will also attend that meeting.

Professor Anthony Bryan, an international relations expert who teaches in Trinidad, stated that the People’s Republic of China has forged stronger economic ties with many Caribbean nations during the past few years, where China has funded infrastructure improvement projects. The Caribbean suffers from high levels of poverty, and “China is running away with the gold in the view of many region watchers. Its footprint is visible and obvious through its ‘checkbook’ diplomacy in the Caribbean.



Black Candidates Elected to Ferguson City Council

Posted by maggie laurent on April 8, 2015 at 3:17 pm | Filled Under: Ferguson| No comments

Ferguson, Missouri erupted in violence only a few short months ago after a white police officer shot and killed unarmed 18-year old Michael Brown. The death of the young man sparked controversy and violence in the city and around the world after the decision was made not to charge the cop with the death. As one might expect, race was the prominent issue in the case. Complicating things even more was the fact that the small town east of Saint Louis has a history of being a ‘white town’ with ‘racists.’

The city is back in headlines, this time after Elle Jones and Wesley Bell was elected to the City Council. What’s the big deal about these two names? They’re both African American. Also elected that night was former mayor Brian Fletcher, a white man who has often stood among protestors and demonstrations held against the police.

What does this mean for the city of Ferguson? Is it a sign that change is on the way? Or is it too late for that now? Most will agree that this is a positive sign for Ferguson, and that residents of the city want to unite together. With all of the looting in the city after the death of Brown, it is safe to say that this peace is much welcomed. Gianfrancesco Genoso said the two black Council Members were among several officials competing for a seat during the Tuesday night election. There were more black candidates that night than in the entire history of Ferguson. Approximately 64% of the city’s black community voted.

Nothing will ever bring Michael Brown back, and nothing will ever change the emotions felt during and after the murder. But this is a sign of improvement, and in a city with so much damage already, even a smile sign is a good sign.
