Stories Of Successful People Probably like everyone else, I have tried to understand why when some people achieve stellar success and enjoy every second of their lives, while others spend their days in misery and poverty. People who fail to achieve their goals usually put it down to unsupportive parents and family, lack of education, poor financial situation, lack of â€œconnectionsâ€, ill-health, lack of time, personal characteristics or bad economy. Most of us have been told since early childhood that, â€œYou have to work hard for your moneyâ€, that â€œAll successful people are evil, cunning, selfish, and greedyâ€, that â€œYou have to have money/connections to make money and become successfulâ€, and that â€œSome people are born under a lucky star, while others are followed by â€œbad luckâ€. Indeed, the lives of many successful and wealthy people seem perfect and care-free. They live in gorgeous mansions, drive expensive cars, wear stylish clothes, go on vacations to exotic countries, date and marry beautiful people, appear on TV, or are smiling happily at us from magazine covers. It is easy to believe that success and wealth has come to them easily and effortlessly. Whenever, we talk or read about famous people, we never equate ourselves with them. It is almost as if they belong to a â€œspecial groupâ€. We can either envy or admire them, but rarely do we think of them as â€œregularâ€ or â€œordinaryâ€ (just like me or you). I believe it happens because few of us realize that most successful people came from poor families, have had abusive parents, started at the very bottom and climb their way up, faced multiple setbacks, and made hundreds of mistakes before they achieved their goals. These people have changed this world and demonstrated by their own example that nothing is impossible. We should seek inspiration in their success stories, learn from them, adopt similar mindset, develop success habits, and apply what we have learned to our own life. No one has ever become wealthier from counting other peopleâ€™s money or happier from discussing their personal life. But every success story can be used and applied as a method, technique or a guidebook for you to become successful.

I feel the need to educate a lot of people on how flood insurance and the NFIP work. All Flood Insurance goes through NFIP (the National Flood Insuarnce Program) and it is administered through FEMA. I pay a very HIGH annual premium to be insured against flooding. It is nearly $3000/yr for us. Some are less, some are more. Some people pay direct to NFIP (me) others use a middle-man insurance company (ie NJ Manufacturers, Prudential etc.) So there is no misunderstanding, the US Govt is our INSURER. We pay THE US GOVT. to be insured by them (like you pay Geico, AllState etc for your cars etc) Now the NFIP RAN OUT OF $$ because all the FEMA $$ is in one big pot, and our insurance claim monies were eaten up with other FEMA spending. Today they US Govt had a vote on replensihing the NFIP so that those of us WITH FLOOD INSURANCE THAT WE PAID FOR could get a settlement check. 67 REPUBLICANS STILL VOTED NO on this today (luckily we had 2/3 majority without those idiots). They voted AGAINST us getting insurance claims we are OWED. THERE WAS NO "PORK". THERE WAS NO HAND-OUT. These elected officials said NO. Plain and simple. Today was only about those of us who actually had flood insurance. The rest is still UNFUNDED. That happens on 1/15/13. Please stop saying that they voted no for "pork" reasons. Please stop justifying on party-lines. We are insured and they OWE us. We shouldn't have to beg.

Salah satu bentuk pembelaan kita kepada saudara seaqidah dan menjadi upaya perlawanan terhadap Zionis adalah dengan memboikot produk-produk penyumbang Israel. Boikot Israel. Karena setiap kita membeli produk-produk penyumbang Zionis itu, kita memberikan sekian rupiah untuk Zionis yang kemudian dibelikan peluru untuk ditembakkan ke tubuh mungil balita dan anak-anak Palestina. Lalu siapa dibalik produk prestis yang kita kenakan selama ini, dan inilah saatnya kita semua mengerti apa dan siapa orang yang ada dibelakang semua ini.

Mamman Nasir: A Northern Star Sunday Trust magazine - The Arts Written by - Sunday, 10 July 2011 03:30 Authors: Isma’il Yusuf Malumfashi and Kabir Abba Muhammad Publishers: Ismak Northern Publishers Pages: 299 pages Review by Prof. Epiphany Azinge The book titled “Mamman Nasir: A Northern Star” is co- authored by Isma’i1 Yusuf Malumfashi and Kabir Abba Muhammad. Made up of 299 pages, it is foreworded by General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida GCFR, former President, Commander-in-Chief Federal Republic of Nigeria, and prefaced by Late Hon. (DR.) Justice Muhammed Bello GCON, former Chief Justice of Nigeria. Taking a close look at the book, you cannot help but agree with me that so much time and energy has been committed into the production of this book. The quality of the paper used for the book, both inside and cover page is quite high. To enhance easy readability, the fonts and prints of the book are clear and bold enough to see. The formatting of the book and general paragraphing of the book no doubt meets international standards. The authors have also painstakingly provided the reader with a comprehensive index from pages 296-299. If you doubt any of the good things said about His Lordship in this book, the authors have provided the readers with appendix from pages 272- 293. Particularly striking is appendixes (ii) & (iii). These have to do with land mark judgments delivered by His Lordship in the cases of Chief Omu Uzoukwu & ORS v Igwe Chukwudebelu Ezeike II lgwe of Atani & ORS and that of Federal Electoral Commission v Alhaji Mohammed Goni & Anor.amongst others. The depth of research by the authors in writing this book is further demonstrated by the volume of materials consulted as reflected in the selected bibliography captured on pages 294-295 of the book. Another striking feature of the book is the inclusion in it of some pictures of our past leaders, legends, nationalists and legal icons. Even generations yet unborn reading the book will surely have the opportunity and benefit to view the pictures. On the whole, the book is made up of eight chapters. Chapter one traces the roots and family origin of Hon. Justice Mamman Nasir. The family linkage is traced to Faskain, a sleepy town located in the present day Kafin which origins dates back to 1778. The chapter also deals with His Lordship’s early education and the process and promise he demonstrated in his early days, particularly in subjects like mathematics, which endeared him to many. The reader will also find in this chapter that what today is popularly known as Barewa College actually started in Katsina as a middle school before it was relocated to Kaduna. Mamman Nasir started work in the public circle as evidenced in this chapter where his most outstanding contribution is the construction of the CLOCK TOWER located at the Emir’s palace in 1951. After a brief stint in the public service, His Lordship as a result of his outstanding contributions was offered an opportunity by the colonial administration to read law, thus ushering him into the noble profession. He studied both at the University College Ibadan and in England. On successful completion of his studies, he returned home and was appointed a pupil Crown Counsel in the then Northern Region where he showed lot of commitment, zeal and courage in his assignments. He rose rapidly to become a Senior Crown Counsel . He also became the first indigenous lawyer to head a legal department in Jos. Mamman Nasir’s sterling qualities as a lawyer led to his being appointed a Justice Minister by the Late Sir Ahmadu Bello and also a Member of Parliament in 1961. Chapter three primarily dwells on the functions and duties of His Lordship as a minister and how he travelled the length and breadth of the then Northern Region carrying out his duties. The coup d’etat of January, 1966 however brought to an abrupt end Nasir’s service as a minister. He then returned to his private practice where again he excelled. Not too long, in 1967, he returned to government as the Solicitor-General in the North-Central State. In 1975, he and the former CJN, Late Justice Mohammed Bello were elevated to the exalted position of justices of the Supreme Court by the Late Murtala Regime. His Lordship’s appointment was straight from the Bar. In chapter four, the roots of the Katsina Dynasty are traced as well as the steps leading to the appointment of the Galadima which Mamman Nasir was eventually turbaned on the 9th of May 1992. The chapter also demonstrated how the unique training of his Lordship in Islamic and western education positioned him to carry out his duties as the Galadima of Katsina and District Head of Malumfashi. Being a man ever ready to serve his country, His Lordship, even after his active years of service in the judiciary, continued to serve the country in several other notable capacities. Chapter five as aptly so titled, is a description of Mamman Nasir “In the Eyes of the People” and here, the authors bring together what prominent Nigerians have said about His Lordship. Chapter six chronicles selected speeches of His Lordship delivered at different fora. Of particular note is the one at the valedictory session that was held at all the division of the courts of Appeal marking the voluntary but premature retirement of His Lordship. Chapter seven demonstrates that His Lordship is equally committed to promoting rural development, social well being, support and encouragement for health and educational development. These among others largely represent the aims and objectives of the Gidauniyar Jihar katsina (Kstsina State Development Fund), a philanthropic organization. This chapter reveals the active involvement of His Lordship in this organization in terms of his time, energy, commitment and the position he occupied in it. The book finally concludes with chapter eight The account given of His Lordship in this book indeed presents him as he truly is; a nationalist, “an Institution in his own right”, a legal icon, a man who has served his fatherland, the longest serving president of the Court of Appeal etc. This man no doubt is a NIGERIAN STAR, not just a northern star. Herein lies the irony of the title, which if literally construed, would be reducing His Lordship and his nationalist strides and outlook to a mere sectional leader. This observation however can be refuted if the authors deliberately punned on the phrase purely to suggest that His Lordship is as constant as the Northern Star. Yet, the connotation on the title as reflective on the cover page and page (iii) are different. Aside from this, the minor editorial errors noticed in the book, particularly the back cover page are insignificant and do not affect the quality or content of the book. It is hoped that in the second edition or reprinting of the book, such would be taken care of. Other than these few observations, the book really makes a good reading. It represents a good documentation of history both for the present and future generation. It is my honour and privilege to recommend it for lawyers, judges, students, historians, journalists as well as the entire public to read.

Elena Alexandra Apostoleanu was born on October 16, 1986, in the village of Neptun, nearby Black Sea shore-city Mangalia in Dobruja, Romania. The singer recalls that her love for music was first encouraged and supported by her family. Her grandmother and mother were both occasional singers at local parties or night clubs. When she was a teenager, Inna would listen to a large variety of musical genres. Although her favourite style was Electro house, she also used to listen to Christina Aguilera and Beyoncé or even towards ballads by Celine Dion or Whitney Houston. She also recalls how easy it was for her to sing every song that she liked, her vocals letting her reach most of the high notes. As a student, she attended classes at the "Mangalia Economical Lyceum", a middle class high school in the town of Mangalia (in the vicinity of her hometown), now called "Colegiul Economic Mangalia" — Mangalia Economy College. After graduating from high school with moderate to good marks and therefore acceptable averages, she attempted a degree in Political Sciences at the "Ovidius"University of Constanţa. She stated that she has never enjoyed the courses nor the subjects, so after a rushed graduation she changed her mind towards making music. From the age of sixteen, Inna took Bel canto lessons with master Traian Broască, who told her she had a pure talent since she was in the second grade. At the age of seventeen, Inna left Broască's classes after he told her and her mother that she really has to work and exercise her voice to make it sound musically, statement that bothered her mother and made her withdrew from his training school. Later that year, Inna started a musical duo with Broască's daughter, Alexandra Broască, but the project didn't get any attention. Before turning eighteen, she auditioned to join the nationwide famous pop group A.S.I.A. but she was rejected in favor of soloist Alina Diana Crișan. She said that her physic inhibited her and the rejection discouraged her and made her give up on her musical career. She started a career as a household retailer at a small boutique in Neptun where she was selling slippers. Play & Win, the producing trio that discovered Inna. In late 2007, producer Marcel Botezan came across to Inna while singing in the market and, impressed by her vocal ability, he proposed her a contract with Roton. At the end of 2007, Inna signed a contract with Romanian producers Play & Win and she started recording her first tracks. In early 2008, Inna took the stage name "Alessandra" and entered a couple of songs produced by Play & Win for the Selecţia Naţională Eurovision 2008 in order to represent Romania in the Eurovision Song Contest 2008, but neither of them ("Goodbye" and "Sorry") managed to pass the anterior pre-selection. They are both pop-rock ballads. If the former one was performed live during primetime TV show "Teo!" on Prima TV in March 2008, the latter one became a viral hit within a couple of months in Romania. After the unsuccessful attempt, the producing trio and Alessandra reinvented themselves and chose to opt for a House music project. In summer 2008, the four recorded some new tracks including a demo for "Hot" or "Left Right". When interviewed about the choice of her stage name, the singer told that Inna was an extremely rare name throughout her native Romania, and only met it in Slavic countries, so she found it an accessible pseudonym. Additionally, the singer stated that in her early childhood, her grandfather used to call her Inna, a hypocorism for Elena, and she therefore decided that her stage name would be Inna, in the memory of her deceased grandfather. 2008—10: Hot era On November 12, 2008, Inna released her debut single "Hot", which was produced by Play & Win, a Romanian dance music trio and one of the leading music producers in Romania.

Katy Perry Is 2013'S Hottest Woman Katy Perry has been named the hottest woman of 2013 just four days into the new year. The I Kissed A Girl star saw off competition from Hollywood actress Mila Kunis to clinch top spot on a list of the 100 Hottest Women of 2013 by America's Men Health magazine. Editors at the publication cite Perry's career successes and her bounce back from the breakdown of her marriage to Russell Brand as factors in their decision to fete her with their top title, writing, "She took a bad breakup and turned it into the raw material of the year's most successful album, Teenage Dream... Hell, her Twitter following alone is four times the population of New York City... Nobody, including us, could get enough of Perry this year. And for that reason, she is our sexiest woman of 2013." Black Swan star Kunis came in at number two, while voluptuous Mad Men star Christina Hendricks was at three and The Hunger Games' Jennifer Lawrence at four. Former Friends star Jennifer Aniston took fifth spot after previously being honoured with the magazine's title of Sexiest Woman Of All-time. Other honourees in the top 10 include Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie and Beyonce, while Jennifer Lopez was a lowly entry at number 72, just one spot above pregnant British royal Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge at 73. Actress Kristen Stewart was another low entry at 89 ahead of pop superstar Lady Gaga at 93.

Esther Johnston... low rating because you wouldn't give hardcore pain meds? That sounds very familiar.
Asking patients to grade their doctors sounds like a great idea. But it's actually perverting the practice of medicine, encouraging doctors to overprescribe and overtreat, driving up costs and sometimes worsening care.

Marilyn Monroe was born on June 1, 1926, in the Los Angeles County Hospital as Norma Jeane Mortenson (soon after changed to Baker), the third child born to Gladys Pearl Baker (née Monroe, May 27, 1902 – March 11, 1984). Monroe's birth certificate names the father as Martin Edward Mortensen with his residence stated as "unknown". The name Mortenson is listed as her surname on the birth certificate, although Gladys immediately had it changed to Baker, the surname of her first husband and which she still used. Martin's surname was misspelled on the birth certificate leading to more confusion on who her actual father was. Gladys Baker had married a Martin E. Mortensen in 1924, but they had separated before Gladys' pregnancy. Several of Monroe's biographers suggest that Gladys Baker used his name to avoid the stigma of illegitimacy. Mortensen died at the age of 85, and Monroe's birth certificate, together with her parents' marriage and divorce documents, were discovered. The documents showed that Mortensen filed for divorce from Gladys on March 5, 1927, and it was finalized on October 15, 1928. Throughout her life, Marilyn Monroe denied that Mortensen was her father. She said that, when she was a child, she had been shown a photograph of a man that Gladys identified as her father, Charles Stanley Gifford. She remembered that he had a thin mustache and somewhat resembled Clark Gable, and that she had amused herself by pretending that Gable was her father. Gladys was mentally unstable and financially unable to care for the young Norma Jeane, so she placed her with foster parents Albert and Ida Bolender of Hawthorne, California, where she lived until she was seven. One day, Gladys visited and demanded that the Bolenders return Norma Jeane to her. Ida refused, as she knew Gladys was unstable and the situation would not benefit her young daughter. Gladys pulled Ida into the yard, then quickly ran back to the house and locked herself in. Several minutes later, she walked out with one of Albert Bolender's military duffel bags. To Ida's horror, Gladys had stuffed a screaming Norma Jeane into the bag, zipped it up, and was carrying it right out with her. Ida charged toward her, and their struggle split the bag apart, dumping out Norma Jeane, who wept loudly as Ida grabbed her and pulled her back inside the house, away from Gladys. In 1933, Gladys bought a house and brought Norma Jeane to live with her. A few months later, Gladys began a series of mental episodes that would plague her for the rest of her life. In My Story, Monroe recalls her mother "screaming and laughing" as she was forcibly removed to the State Hospital in Norwalk. Norma Jeane was declared a ward of the state. Gladys's best friend, Grace McKee, became her guardian. It was Grace who told Monroe that someday she would become a movie star. Grace was captivated by Jean Harlow, and would let Norma Jeane wear makeup and take her out to get her hair curled. They would go to the movies together, forming the basis for Norma Jeane's fascination with the cinema and the stars on screen. When Norma Jeane was 9, McKee married Ervin Silliman "Doc" Goddard in 1935, and subsequently sent Monroe to the Los Angeles Orphans Home (later renamed Hollygrove), followed by a succession of foster homes. While at Hollygrove, several families were interested in adopting her; however, reluctance on Gladys' part to sign adoption papers thwarted those attempts. In 1937, Monroe moved back into Grace and Doc Goddard's house, joining Doc's daughter from a previous marriage. Due to Doc's frequent attempts to sexually assault Norma Jeane, this arrangement did not last long. Grace sent Monroe to live with her great-aunt, Olive Brunings, in Compton, California; this was also a brief stint ended by an assault (some reports[which?] say it was sexual) when one of Olive's sons had attacked the now middle-school-aged girl. Biographers and psychologists[who?] have questioned whether at least some of Norma Jeane's later behavior (i.e., hypersexuality, sleep disturbances, substance abuse, disturbed interpersonal relationships), was a manifestation of the effects of childhood sexual abuse in the context of her already problematic relationships with her psychiatrically ill mother and subsequent caregivers. In early 1938, Grace sent her to live with yet another one of her aunts, Ana Lower, who lived in the Van Nuys area of Los Angeles County. Years later, she would reflect fondly about the time that she spent with Lower, whom she affectionately called "Aunt Ana". She would explain that it was one of the few times in her life when she felt truly stable. As she aged, however, Lower developed serious health problems. In 1942, Monroe moved back to Grace and Doc Goddard's house. While attending Van Nuys High School, she met a neighbor's son, James Dougherty (more commonly referred to as simply "Jim"), and began a relationship with him. Several months later, Grace and Doc Goddard relocated to Virginia, where Doc had received a lucrative job offer. Although it was never explained why, they decided not to take Monroe with them. An offer from a neighborhood family to adopt her was proposed, but Gladys rejected the offer. With few options left, Grace approached Dougherty's mother and suggested that Jim marry her so that she would not have to return to an orphanage or foster care, as she was two years below the California legal age. Jim was initially reluctant, but he finally relented and married her in a ceremony arranged by Ana Lower. During this period, Monroe briefly supported her family as a homemaker. In 1943, during World War II, Dougherty enlisted in the Merchant Marine. He was initially stationed on Santa Catalina Island off California's west coast, and Monroe lived with him there in the town of Avalon for several months before he was shipped out to the Pacific. Frightened that he might not come back alive, Monroe begged him to try and get her pregnant before he left. Dougherty disagreed, feeling that she was too young to have a baby, but he promised that they would revisit the subject when he returned home. Subsequently, Monroe moved in with Dougherty's mother. While Dougherty served in the Merchant Marine, his wife began working in the Radioplane Munitions Factory, mainly spraying airplane parts with fire retardant and inspecting parachutes. During that time, David Conover of the U.S. Army Air Forces' 1st Motion Picture Unit was sent to the factory by his commanding officer, future U.S. president Captain Ronald Reagan to shoot morale-boosting photographs for Yank, the Army Weekly magazine of young women helping the war effort. He noticed her and snapped a series of photographs, none of which appeared in Yank magazine, although some still claim this to be the case. He encouraged her to apply to The Blue Book Modeling Agency. She signed with the agency and began researching the work of Jean Harlow and Lana Turner. She was told that they were looking for models with lighter hair, so Norma Jeane bleached her brunette hair a golden blonde. Norma Jeane became one of Blue Book's most successful models; she appeared on dozens of magazine covers. Her successful modeling career brought her to the attention of Ben Lyon, a 20th Century Fox executive, who arranged a screen test for her. Lyon was impressed and commented, "It's Jean Harlow all over again." She was offered a standard six-month contract with a starting salary of $125 per week. Lyon did not like the name Norma Jeane and chose "Carole Lind" as a stage name, after Carole Lombard and Jenny Lind, but he soon decided it was not an appropriate choice. Monroe was invited to spend the weekend with Lyon and his wife Bebe Daniels at their home. It was there that they decided to find her a new name. Following her idol Jean Harlow, she decided to choose her mother's maiden name of Monroe. Several variations such as Norma Jeane Monroe and Norma Monroe were tried and initially "Jeane Monroe" was chosen. Eventually, Lyon decided Jeane and variants were too common, and he decided on a more alliterative sounding name. He suggested "Marilyn", commenting that she reminded him of Marilyn Miller. Monroe was initially hesitant because Marilyn was the contraction of the name Mary Lynn, a name she did not like. Lyon, however, felt that the name "Marilyn Monroe" was sexy, had a "nice flow", and would be "lucky" due to the double "M". During her first few months at 20th Century Fox, Monroe had no speaking roles in any films but, alongside other new contract players, took singing, dancing and other classes. She appeared as an extra in some movies, but no exact list exists; some film buffs claim she appears in the musical comedies The Shocking Miss Pilgrim and You Were Meant for Me, and in the Western Green Grass of Wyoming, but these are unconfirmed. She graduated to a bit part as Betty in Scudda Hoo! Scudda Hay!: Dressed in a pinafore and walking down the steps of a church, she says, "Hi, Rad" to the main character, played by June Haver, who responds, "Hi, Betty." After Monroe's stardom, 20th Century Fox began claiming that Monroe's only line in the film had been cut out, an anecdote Monroe repeated on Person to Person in 1955, but film historian James Haspiel says her line is intact and she also appears in a shot with herself and another woman paddling a canoe.

Articles WEB EXCLUSIVE Now is the Hour: Say Goodbye to Stephen Harper DAVE BENNETT | July 12th 2010 | 4 The Right Honourable Stephen Harper assured Canadians that the G8 and G20 summit meetings brought the opportunity to demonstrate Canadian hospitality and leadership, with a hint that it might all lead to securing a seat at the table in the UN Security Council, among the big players, and perhaps with Stephen Harper in a starring role as World Leader. Instead, Stephen Harper blew it. He proved to be a laughingstock and an embarrassment to Canadians. Remember the Fake Lake? Whether you saw him as a scheming megalomaniac or as an ill-advised puppet, the effect is the same. He could have been a contender. But he threw away his eligibility as World Leader — let alone as leader of his own party — when he stubbornly insisted on holding the G20 summit in the heart of downtown Toronto. Concerned Canadians who showed up for peaceful demonstrations found — already in place — an intimidating fence and a highly visible police presence, striking symbols of a fascist state. Harper and his team must go. More and more Canadians are moved to gather the evidence, and I offer a sample in this article. York Prof. James Laxer wrote in his blog, “Reducing the normally vibrant city of Toronto to a comatose vegetable has not been a pretty sight. We have been treated to the methods of police state where there is no connect between the people and their supposed leaders. This must never be allowed to happen in our country again.” In a Preliminary Report, the Canadian Civil Liberties Association noted that “police conduct during the G20 Summit was, at times, disproportionate, arbitrary and excessive … Over the next 36 hours, over 900 people (possibly close to 1000) were arrested by police — the largest mass-arrest in Canadian history. Media, human rights monitors, protesters and passersby were scooped up off the streets. Detained people were not allowed to speak to a lawyer or to their families. Arbitrary searches occurred in countless locations across the city, in many instances several kilometers from the G20 summit site. Peaceful protests were violently dispersed and force was used. In an effort to locate and disable 100-150 vandals, the police disregarded the constitutional rights of thousands.” The Summits: Serious Exchange or Costly Photo-op? The summits were ostensibly — first and foremost — to resolve the global financial crisis. Instead global leaders remarked on Harper’s financial irresponsibility in wasting over a billion dollars in unnecessary expense in a time when fiscal restraint is needed. According to one report, “The G20 Summit was heavy on promises and lean on concrete action items, notes the Task Force on Financial Integrity and Economic Development. While the G20 expressed a strong desire to “close the development gap,” increase transparency, and tackle corruption and money laundering, there was a notable lack of language indicating an understanding of the interconnected nature of these different problems.” James Laxer again: “Now the Harper government is back to putting ideology ahead of economic thinking. The Conservatives plan to continue lowering tax rates for corporations and the wealthy and they are determined to slash government spending, except for military outlays. Bash public servants, hold down their incomes, and cut social spending — that’s the recipe. If adopted by a large part of the world, it’s a recipe for depression.” Echoing Laxer on June 28, Naomi Klein wrote an op-ed in the Globe and Mail headed, “Sticking the Public with the Bill for the Bankers’ Crisis:” “My city feels like a crime scene and the criminals are all melting into the night, fleeing the scene. No, I’m not talking about the kids in black who smashed windows and burned cop cars on Saturday. “I’m talking about the heads of state who, on Sunday night, smashed social safety nets and burned good jobs in the middle of a recession. Faced with the effects of a crisis created by the world’s wealthiest and most privileged strata, they decided to stick the poorest and most vulnerable people in their countries with the bill.” Then there is Harper’s ‘initiative’ on maternal health: The Toronto Star’s Olivia Ward wrote an article headed, “Stephen Harper missing women’s health summit:” “The … world’s biggest maternal health conference opens Monday with a speech by United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. “But missing in action is Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who, as host of the G20 conference in Toronto later this month, has made saving the lives of the half-million women who die each year in pregnancy and childbirth his core theme. “The Washington meeting, titled Women Deliver, is timed to bolster the G20 agenda for pumping up funds for maternal health. There are 3,300 advocates and politicians attending from 140 countries, including the heads of major UN agencies, government ministers, parliamentarians, celebrity campaigners and former heads of state. “It is a surprise that Stephen Harper didn’t come,” said Women Deliver president Jill Sheffield. “He and Laureen Harper were invited and they didn’t even reply. This is his legacy issue. We thought he might at least have sent a message.” Harper’s absence from the Washington conference is being taken as another sign that women’s health is less important to him than lobbying for banking regulation. Stephen Harper pledged $1.1 billion to a global initiative on maternal and child health for developing countries. He announced that G8 members have committed $5 billion over the next five years to the so-called Muskoka Initiative and that other countries will pitch in more than $2.3 billion for a total of $7.3 billion. By some estimates, however, at least $12 billion will be needed. “Canada has far and away the strongest financial position, fiscal position, of any country that’s sitting around that table today,” Harper said. “[Maternal and child health] has been our flagship initiative for this particular conference. So, I thought it was more than appropriate that Canada lead with a disproportionate contribution. Despite Harper’s show of generosity and compassion, the dialogue fizzled when it became clear that the aid was tied to accepting Family Planning, botched abortion being a leading cause of maternal death in Africa. A summary of the other topics, which lead us to question Stephen Harper’s capacity for leadership, would have to include: Harper’s Embarrassing Stances Besides the maternal health debacle, there was Harper’s stance on the environment at Copenhagen; his stance on aboriginal rights, refusing to sign the non-binding United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples; and topping off the list we get Harper’s stance on Israeli Gaza blockade and supporting Israel’s apartheid policy. Writing in Toronto’s NOW magazine, Andrew Cash says, “The dumping of our PM has become a new global mandate in the fight for economic and climate justice. Ditching Harper is a global justice issue, given his destructive world stage performance.” Also in Now, Alice Klein wrote, “When he took on the G summits, Stephen Harper was obviously hoping to play out his inner white knight. He grabbed the G8/G20 for Canada so he could use his hosting heft to set the world right and put neo-con politics back at the centre of the world stage. “I think history will see his performance as the last hurrah of a bygone era.” “Watch out for South Korea,” she writes, “and in just five months it’s hosting the next G20 summit … That’s when a new financial regulatory system is supposed to be adopted.” “And the issue South Korea is putting on the agenda, backed by the team of countries it’s leading, is development. Don’t expect the Asian nation’s perspective to have anything in common with Harper’s dumb maternal health propaganda … If you’re looking to see where new leadership will emerge on the world stage, the smart money is betting on Asia.” Harper’s Broken Promises Disregarding expense, Harper contravened his own commitment to set election dates. He cut funding for women’s agencies such as Status of Women Canada (SWC), the federal commission with a mandate to promote equality for women. He backtracked on stimulus grant for Toronto’s Gay Pride event. “Running the most secretive and least accountable government in Canadian history after running on a platform of accountability.” This is just another [#30] of a fascinating website from blogger ‘Tootrusting’ in Nova Scotia. It’s labeled ”Stephen Harper’s Broken Promises — 100+ Reasons Not to Vote for Harper.” Some others: The Harper government promised never to tax income trusts and then caused billions of dollars in losses to investors when they did. Why did Stephen Harper promise to remove nonrenewable resource revenues from the equalization formula but then back out on the promise and even deny he did so? Stephen Harper promised to station a 650-person rapid response battalion at 5 Wing Goose Bay and increase the military presence in St. John’s, only to do nothing of the sort. The Conservatives, while in opposition and on the election trail, push for a full inquiry into compensation for those affected by Agent Orange. Harper’s Stealth Harper’s sudden proroguing of parliament on two different occasions to avoid having to answer tough questions stirred up a storm when it dawned on Canadians that they’d been had. The Globe and Mail’s John Ibbitson wrote: “The Harper government’s decision to have Parliament prorogued in the dead of Christmas week sets a record for taking out the trash. “That’s the political term for a government dumping unwelcome or unpopular announcements at times when the news is likely to be ignored … Determined to short-circuit an investigation into how the government mishandled the treatment of Afghan detainees? Wait until the eve of New Year’s Eve — when MPs are in their ridings or down south, readers and viewers are few, and that day’s news is dominated by the picks for the men’s Olympic hockey team — and suspend Parliament. “For anyone who believes that our governments should be honest, open and accountable, this is a travesty. But it’s devilishly clever.” At present, now that Parliament has shut down for its Summer Break, how many promises — made or broken — will be remembered? How many distractions from the leader’s flaws will his team create? Canadian political writers speak of Harper’s secret agenda, heavily weighted toward the right and theocracy. Marci McDonald writes in The Armageddon Factor, citing his judicial appointments: “By making a bureaucratic adjustment to the country’s judicial advisory panels, he had surreptitiously put in place a mechanism that allowed him to impose a long-term ideological stamp on at least a thousand federal appointments to the bench.” Information Commissioner Robert Marleau told The Hill Times recently that the Harper government has been quietly drafting about 25 government policies that impact on the rights of officers of Parliament, and that it has been happening without their knowledge or input. Harper’s Arrogance Harper ignores the vast majority of Canadians who oppose war in Afghanistan. Harper ignores the majority of Canadian agencies and private citizens who oppose the closing of prison farms. He ignores all of the Police agencies in Canada by shutting down the Gun Registry, despite their claim that it can save the lives of police and others. Favouring capital punishment, Harper ignores the vast majority of Canadians who oppose the death penalty. Harper’s Demonstrated Prejudice Against Women Richard J. Brennan of the Toronto Star writes: “Prime Minister Stephen Harper has been accused of systematically undermining women in this country by stripping their advocacy groups of tens of millions of dollars and targeting those critical of his government’s anti-abortion stance on the world stage. “In the past two weeks, the federal government has ended funding to 14 women’s groups, including a non-governmental agency that was funded by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) for more than 30 years.” Harper’s Demonstrated Prejudice Against Gays, Lesbians, Transgendered His stance on same-sex marriage — now legal in Canada — is well known. During the G20, hundreds of arrested demonstrators were rounded up and incarcerated in a makeshift prison. It is, perhaps, no accident that thanks to Harper’s endorsement there was a climate in which Canadian citizens who appeared to fall in those categories were subject to verbal or physical abuse by their police guards. Harper’s Ideology-driven Criminal Justice Stance This is based on retribution, not rehabilitation and a belief in capital punishment. “It is the extent to which retribution is at the core of this man that strikes me as one the most disturbing aspect of his government, because it is so at odds with the values of the vast majority of Canadians.” - Murray Dobbin in The Tyee Harper is Anti-democratic, Subversive “Harper is trampling on democracy yet again with a new round of secret trade talks in Europe. People around the world are demanding tougher climate and health protections, not an expansion of discredited laissez-faire capitalism,” says Maude Barlow, national chairperson of the Council of Canadians. “We’ve seen firsthand how NAFTA has destroyed jobs, depressed working conditions and rendered governments nearly powerless to corporate interests. Canadians can’t afford to go down that path again. “As a second round of Canada-European Union free trade talks wraps up in Brussels, Belgium today, Canadian civil society organizations are demanding full transparency from the Harper government, and a halt to negotiations while countrywide public consultations can be held,” says CAW National President Ken Lewenza. Harper’s Lies or Misleading Statements “Harper ‘lies’ about coalition details: Broadbent” That’s the headline in the CBC report on the pending coalition talks by the NDP, the Bloc and the liberals. In an interview with CBC News in Toronto, a furious Broadbent had harsh words for the prime minister, saying Harper was also trying to pit English Canada against Quebecers in his attempt to discredit the proposed coalition to replace him if the Conservative minority government falls. “I’ve never seen the leader of a Conservative party, certainly not Bob Stanfield, certainly not Joe Clark, lie — I choose the word deliberately — the way Mr. Harper has,” Broadbent said. Broadbent said Harper is conducting a “shameful operation” by trying to turn certain defeat in the House of Commons into a national unity crisis. “I’m concerned I have a prime minister who lies to the people of Canada and knows it,” Broadbent said. “It’s one thing to exaggerate. It’s another to deliberately tell falsehoods.” Harper’s Failed ‘Transparency’ vs. his Real Policy of Obstructionism The Calgary Herald reported on the secret guidebook of ‘dirty tricks’ for Conservative MPs on how to unleash chaos while chairing parliamentary committees. “Running some 200 pages, including background material, the document given only to Conservative chairmen tells them how to favour government agendas, select party-friendly witnesses, coach favourable testimony, set in motion debate-obstructing delays and, if necessary, storm out of meetings to grind business to a halt.” Harper and his cronies have a record of restricting or denying access to information, avoiding media, changing subject if questioned, creating what CBC commentator Don Newman describes what he calls a ‘Climate of Suspicion’. “Under the current regime, this climate of suspicion has worked its way down through the system to the other parties. As a result, spin has replaced substance, posturing has replaced policies, attacking opponents has replaced attacking problems pretty much across the board.” In his message on 19 May 2010 Union President James Clancy wrote, “Harper’s divisive tactics are damaging Canadian civility and undermining democratic traditions… [Senator Ruth’s] blatant disdain for democracy is not an isolated Conservative incident. Rather, it is part of a disturbing culture of intimidation that pervades the Harper government.” Andrew Cash writes in Toronto’s NOW magazine: “Ditching Harper is a global justice issue, given his destructive world stage performance … As local electoral politics takes a back seat to global activism on the streets of Toronto, a curious thing is happening. Through the white noise of government communiqués, obscene security expenditures and pork-barrel politics in cottage country, Harper himself has become an agenda item for those of us outside the security perimeter. The dumping of our PM has become a new global mandate in the fight for economic and climate justice.” Harper’s Gift to Canadians There is a bright side to this dark picture. As a result of the summit meetings, Harper and his team have shown their true colours. Murray Dobbin has a proposal for Canadians who are mad as hell. Dobbin’s Challenge: Now what? What will the 25,000 people who participated in the demonstrations do in the face the assault on their fellow-citizens? Will they become active in organizations fighting for a better world? Will they donate $100 each to those organizations critical to defending democracy? ($2.5 million would make a difference.) Will the labour movement — still the sector of civil society best equipped to put resources into the struggle — finally take the situation seriously? Will they come together, call for a coalition to rid the country of the most dangerous prime minister in its history? Will enough people demand of the NDP that it actually defend democracy — instead of denouncing the violence as its only statement on the events did? Is the NDP even capable under its current leadership of understanding where we are and how to address the crisis? I can’t think of a better wake-up call for all of us than the wanton violation of civil liberties and democracy that happened on the weekend. Calling for an independent investigation, demanding civil liberties be respected, denouncing the governments involved, raising money to defend those falsely charged — all of this is necessary. But it is not nearly enough.

Share or Email 4 comments There’s lots to ponder here. There’s lots of info here worth keeping. But I find the article to be a bit propagandistic. (And I don’t agree with ‘all’ leftwing positions, so…). But that’s irrelevant. Harper is indeed a big negative. “Join the opposition party appropriate for you,” suggests Dave Bennet. The opposition party appropriate for us? Is Dave serious? ‘That’ is the problem. We have fake democracy and that includes an unfree electoral marketplace. We don’t have real free market - free of influence by special interests - political candidates or parties. And that isn’t mentioned?!!! We get corporatocracy approved candidates and parties and are allowed, in election rituals, to choose from among them. Period. Thunder and stomp your feet all you want, activists, but until you bring that subject up and get people to talk about it, you won’t convince me that you’re serious. You want your omelette and you don’t even have eggs. #1. Posted by Arby in Scarborough on July 16th 2010 at 11:17pm Regardless of small differences in which party you prefer I can tell you that this is bigger then that he needs to go which means we need to come together regardless of those small differences and get him out of office before he ruin’s Canada Completly and he will. If anyone could ever listen to one thing I have ever said it would be this that Harper’s job in this new world order is to Bankrupt Canada so they can be the hero and come in with hte new world currency and say we have to switch to this or we won’t survive. And then wwe have a world bank by the same Bankers that purposly destroyed our economy in every Country Invlovled with the NWO. Harper’s award is that he gets to be King when they get rid of Democracy which is his Job as well.

They are sick people who don;t know right from wrong rich people live in a differnt world then us they see us as sheep they won’t feel bad at all. #2. Posted by Jon in Ontario on July 22nd 2010 at 10:42pm Thank you for mentioning the Agent Orange issue. Most people don’t know that hundreds of thousands of gallons of Agent Orange and millions of doses of Agent White were sprayed on Canadian Forces Base Gagetown starting in 1956. It’s been estimated that over 1,000,000 military personnel in Canada, the New England States and various NATO countries who sent their soldiers to train at this Combat Arms School have been contaminated with Agent Orange and other chemical warfare weapons like Agent Purple. Add in hundreds of thousands of civilians - family of the CF and people in the wrong place at the wrong time, EG. people living around the base. Three times per acre more sprayed than Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War, CFB Gagetown is a toxic “hotspot” every bit as poisonous as Da Nang, Vietnam. Stephen Harper has spent millions covering this up and millions more blocking our call for an inquiry. This will change soon when Liberal-led Committee hearings commence in Ottawa and witnesses are called. We’re going to pull a collective “Richard Colvin” on his ass and when the truth is known - how this was all tied to the Vietnam War - that Gagetown Genocide denier, Stephen Harper, will go down. If anybody wants to see my files proving Canadian complicity in the field-testing of chemical warfare weapons in Canada, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you 80 or so files in 11 emails (BCC’d) that prove it. I can implicate Robert McNamara and John F. Kennedy in this clusterfook. Kelly #3. Posted by Kelly Porter Franklin on July 28th 2010 at 4:51pm Harper is indeed a disgrace. I am still astounded that Canadians voted for him, especially the second time. I truly feel more let down by the opposition parties. I knew Harper was a snake so I didnt expect anything less from him but I feel the opposition parties have got to put the country first and do the right thing and get together. I have been politically active all my life and at this moment in time a merger is the only thing that is going to stop this maniac. Maybe we need to switch our focus away from Harper and start really putting the pressure on the opposition parties to merge. That I feel is our only hope. On another note. My father was stationed at CFB Gagetown from 1957-1970. I lived in Oromocto until I was 9yrs old. We were among the first generation of families to live in that area so I know it well (as we returned again in the 80’s). As he was just a regular soldier he spent alot of time out in the field during the 60’s and yes he remembers well the spraying. He said from one year to the next was unbelievable. What were once fully wooded areas were now completely dead, nothing grew even the trees were stripped bare. Very sad that they were made to work in that environment and then to deny it is unforgivable. I will be getting in touch with Kelly that should be very interesting. #4.

Taking my second acid trip and writing up my Honors Thesis, The School Play, based on an improvisational workshop I taught that culminated in a show. 28: 1984: Living in Cambridge, Mass., and performing with ImprovBoston, which is starting to take of bigtime with great shows at Ryle's in Inman Square. 35: 1991: Living in Everett, Mass., I've pretty much pissed through the money I got for my broken elbow and am working part time as a telemarketer selling a voice-mail service.

I've pissed through my 401(k) and hang a lot at Caliban on 3rd Ave. & 26th St. Not doing a lot of Art Star stuff at the time. 56: 2012: Unemployed again after 6 years at Inc.

Anti gunners- please spare me your angry intense rebuttals. It's a joke. You have heard of those, right?
So we're 4 days into the new yr, & i've been hated on EVERYDAY this week by a different character. This will be the last time I address any HATE towards me...@ 1st it was semi entertaining cuz I get a kick outta the things ppl say...but shyt is se "stale" aka OLD. The comments are repetitive & corny now...everybody talks about the same shyt..my weave..my weave..my weave..MY WEAVE (the most)...& my overall style period because I still look like a female (GOD FORBID -_-)...But its starting 2 feel like listening 2 the radio when they play the same ass songs alllll day long..u get tired of hearing the same lines when u already know the words...feel me? So on that note, I will NOT address any more bafoonery, fake pages, bogus lies, Critisms, down plays, or salt thrown at me. These characters will no longer get SHINE from me responding to them. I refuse 2 acknowledge repeats from retards. Just like you can see me, I CAN'T SEE U...I'll let my #TeamKingKellz handle my light work cuz im HEAVY DUTY now. I dont have time. Yal can sit around & talk shyt while I catch these flights, do these photoshoots, interviews, magazine spreads & collect these bandz. IM OUTCHEA..good day
Matt Lapinskas has admitted that he was shocked to be written out of the soap. The actor bowed out from his role as Anthony Moon last summer after only a year in the part. Lapinskas, who is still dating current cast member Shona McGarty (Whitney Dean), has now spoken candidly about his axing for the first time. He told The Sun's TV Magazine: "I had absolutely no idea what was coming. The week before, I'd been talking about storylines that were to come for Anthony in the years ahead. Before my meeting telling me they'd decided not to renew my contract, I was having a laugh with everyone: 'I'm going to get my P45 now.' Then it actually happened. People didn't seem to know why. When I told Shona, she was upset." The 23-year-old said that Anthony's exit could have been linked to the decision to bring in Joey Branning, played by David Witts. He commented: "Maybe they wanted to swap one young guy for another young guy. The show is very Branning-orientated at the moment. Almost every scene's got a Branning in it." Lapinskas added that he is looking on the bright side as his relationship with McGarty has been "ten times better" since he left EastEnders. The soap star also returns to screens this weekend as a contestant on ITV1's Dancing on Ice.
Speaking about which band member is the laziest, Liam told Top of the Pops magazine: "It's 100 per cent Zayn. He never gets out of bed. "In fact, he was third into the car today so he did quite well, but he is incredibly lazy." "He's not lazy in an 'I can't be bothered to get you a drink' way, just in the way he sleeps, cos he's always the last to get up." Wonder what Zayn has to say to that? Those 1D boys are always dishing the dirt on each other! (Photo: WENN) And Liam didn't stop there, he also labelled curly-haired cutie Harry Styles, 'dirty Harry' when the guys hit Laser Quest for a fun-filled lads day recently. Although the curly-haired heart throb may currently be all loved up with country singer Taylor Swift, it seems like Liam isn't going to let Harry forget his womaniser ways anytime soon, giving him the dirty new nickname. An insider from their recent adventure to Laser Quest told the Daily Star: "Liam joked that they should all start calling him Dirty Harry after Clint Eastwood in the movie." "So that was it - he was Dirty Harry all night." "He didn't seem to mind at all and they were saying it had a double meaning given his exploits with the women," the source added. Do you think Harry's new nickname will catch on?

What do you think gaming will be like in the year 3013?
(If you've already seen this, please forgive the duplication. -- Doug) The Scandal of Silence: Our Persecuted Brethren by John Stonestreet It may be the scandal of 2012. And God forbid that it becomes the scandal of 2013. Think back over this past year. What grabbed the attention of evangelical Christians? The presidential election. Mitt Romney’s Mormonism. Remember “Linsanity” — the excitement over the New York Knicks Christian basketball star? There was the fight over religious freedom and the HHS mandate (although, let’s be clear, it’s taken many evangelicals far too long to pay attention to that threat). Social justice is a recurring theme, especially among younger Christians. All well and good. But something’s missing on the list. Something that should have the church shouting from the rooftops. But instead, like the Obama administration and the media, American Christians for the most part remained stone silent about the outrageous, brutal and systematic persecution of Christians — especially in the Islamic world. Look, I’m guilty too. This wasn’t on my radar until I recorded this weekend’s “BreakPoint This Week” radio show with WORLD magazine columnist Mindy Belz and Ed Stetzer of LifeWay Research. As we looked back at all the issues that Christians focused on in 2012, Mindy pointed out that the persecution of Christians is perhaps our biggest blind spot. And she’s right. Mindy’s done a great job reporting on the murderous rampage of the Islamic group Boko Haram against Christians in Nigeria. Church bombings, machete attacks, targeted killing of church leaders. You name it. Yet the administration was silent. Or worse. A recent Wall Street Journal article quoted an administration official, who “sanitized the intentions of this murderous group” by claiming that "the bulk of the Boko Haram movement is ... trying to do everything in its power to show that the [Nigerian] government is ineffective.” But as the article points out, however, “two months before the official spoke, Boko Haram had claimed responsibility for the murder of dozens of Christians in the city of Jos — just one of many such attacks.” And of course, it’s not just Nigeria. Entire Christian communities have disappeared in Iraq. In Syria, Christians are being targeted by Islamist radicals mixed in with the Syrian opposition forces. Mindy reported on this way back in February of 2012. As Mindy reported, “According to … sources, Islamic militants fighting the regime of President Bashar al-Assad have killed more than 200 Christians in [Homs]… in recent days, including entire families with young children. They’ve also kidnapped Christians and demanded ransom payments.” And that was almost a year ago! How many Syrian Christians have perished since? Just three days ago, the UK’s Daily Mail reported that Islamists beheaded a Christian taxi driver. Where’s the American press? Again, why is this administration silent? Writer Jeffrey Goldberg at the Atlantic may have the answer. He wrote: “The most under-covered story these days is the sustained assault by Islamist terrorists on Christians. ... I don't know precisely why this story, and stories like it, disappear so quickly, though I assume it has something to do with the seeming unwillingness of Christian churches in the West to stand up for their persecuted brethren in countries like Nigeria.” God have mercy on us if that’s true.

Encore une petite EXCLU qui ne va pas faire plaisir a beaucoup de monde: Sidoine♥ va se marier !!! Sidoine a beau avoir un fan club bien rempli, il a toutefois préféré mettre les points sur les "i" avec ses fans qui, pour la plupart, sont des jeunes femmes. En effet, Sidoine n’est pas célibataire et ne risque pas de l’être de si tôt. Dans une interview accordée au magazine Public, le jeune homme a lourdement insisté sur ses sentiments pour sa girlfriend, Laetitia. Les tourtereaux sont amoureux depuis maintenant trois ans et, selon Sidoine, ce n’est pas la Star Academy qui risque d’y changer grand-chose. Quand Laetitia s’est présentée au prime d’hier soir. Sidoine a été un peu trop ému. "Cela a été un des plus beaux moments de ma vie. En trois ans, elle ne m’avait jamais vu pleurer mais quand elle est venue sur le prime, j’ai craqué" explique-t-il. Laetitia serait sans conteste la femme de sa vie et Sidoine compte bien épouser sa belle. "Je pense beaucoup au mariage et au fait d’avoir des enfants avec elle" ajoute-t-il. Pour sa girlfriend, le couple commencera les préparations de leurs noces, dès le retour de Sidoine de la Star Academy. Mesdemoiselles, ne soyez pas trop déçues !

Group/Duo of the Year – 2012 Edition
The Richest Black Woman In The World, Folorunsho Alakija VENTURES AFRICA/Africa’s Secret Millionaires – Move over, Oprah – there is a new richest black woman in the world. And she’s Nigerian. Meet Folorunsho Alakija, a Nigerian billionaire oil tycoon, Fashion designer and philanthropist who is worth at least $3.3 billion- contrary to a recent Forbes Magazine ranking which pegs her net worth at only $600 million. Alakija, 61, was born into a wealthy, polygamous Nigerian family. She started out her professional career in the mid 70s as a secretary at the now defunct International Merchant Bank of Nigeria, one of the country’s earliest investment banks. In the early 80s, Alakija quit her job and went on to study Fashion design in England, returning to Nigeria shortly afterwards to start Supreme Stitches, a premium Nigerian fashion label which catered exclusively to upscale clientele. The business thrived, and Alakija quickly made a tidy fortune selling high-end Nigerian clothing to fashionable wives of military bigwigs and society women. Oil Prospecting License In May 1993 Alakija applied for an allocation of an Oil Prospecting License (OPL). The license to explore for oil on a 617,000 acre block – (now referred to as OPL 216) was granted to Alakija’s company, Famfa Limited. The block is located approximately 220 miles South East of Lagos and 70 miles offshore Nigeria in the central Niger Delta. This was in 1993. Many wealthy Nigerian businessmen and military bigwigs who had been allocated oil blocs by the military administration at the time had no clue as to the technicalities in operating an oil block, so many of them typically acquired OPLs, and then flipped them off to international oil companies for substantial profits. But Alakija was intelligent. She had no expertise or experience in running an oil field, but she decided not to sell off her license. In September 1996, she entered into a joint venture agreement with Star Deep Water Petroleum Limited (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Texaco) and appointed the company as a technical adviser for the exploration of the license, transferring 40 percent of her 100 percent stake to Star Deep. Subsequently, Star Deep sold off 8 percent of its stake in OPL 216 to Petrobas, a Brazilian company. Folorunsho Alakija and her family owned 60 percent. Nigerian Government Forcefully Acquires Stake In The Block Star Deep Petroleum carried on with exploitation of the oil field. In 2000, the first appraisal well was confirmed to have recoverable reserves in excess of 1 billion barrels of oil equivalent. When this was discovered, the Nigerian government, led by Olusegun Obasanjo immediately ordered that a 40 percent interest in OPL 216 be allocated to the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) under the Back-in-Right Regulation of 2003 which gives the Nigerian government participatory rights in any OPL or OML. You can read more about this back-in-right regulation in detail here. This would leave Famfa Oil with a 20 percent stake. This was in 2000, and the government did not pay Famfa a dime for the stake. In 2003, Famfa applied for a conversion from an OPL to an OML, and in 2004 the request was granted. OPL 216 became OML 127. But the Nigerian government was not content with its 40 percent stake in Famfa. In 2005, the government led by General Olusegun Obasanjo forcefully acquired a further 10 percent stake in OML 127. Folorunsho Alakija immediately went to the courts to challenge the government’s forceful acquisition take a 50% in the license. It was a lengthy court battle which lasted for several years, but in May 2012, the Supreme Court voided the government’s acquisition of a 50 percent stake in OML 127 and subsequently transferred the 50 percent stake back to Famfa Oil. (Read about Famfa’s victory here). The Nigerian government tried to appeal the Supreme’s court decision, but the case has been dismissed- a victory for Famfa Oil which sees the little-known oil company owning a 60 percent in OML 127, which is one of Nigeria’s most prolific oil blocks. Valuation Of OML 127 Daily production at OML 127 currently stands at 200,000 barrels per day. When the Nigerian government, through its wholly-owned petroleum company, NNPC, was trying to justify its forceful acquisition of a 50 percent stake in OML 127 at the Supreme court, the Government admitted that if Famfa Oil owned a 60 percent stake in the OML, the company stood to earn $10 million on a daily basis (after taxes and other exploration costs have been settled). The government’s argument at the Supreme Court can be found through this link, (item number 23). So how much is a 60 percent stake in OML 127 worth? Comparator: In July 2012, Royal Dutch Shell agreed to sell its 45 percent stake in OML 30 for $850 million to Heritage Oil and Shoreline Energy. According to Fool.co.uk, OML 30 currently produces 35,000 barrels of oil per day. So, if 45 percent of a 35,000 bpd-producing oil bloc is $850 million, 100 percent of the same bloc = $1.88 billion i.e 100/45 x $850 million If a 100 percent stake in a 35,000 bpd-producing oil bloc is $1.88 billion, by the same logic, a 100 percent stake in 200,000 bpd-producing oil bloc is worth $10.74 billion i.e 200,000 bpd/35,000 bpd X $1.88 billion Folorunsho Alakija’s 60 percent stake in a $10.74 billion oil well is worth $6.44 billion. Technically, her 60 percent stake in OML 127 is worth $6.44 billion. Another comparator: In November 2012, French oil group Total announced that it was selling a 20 percent stake in its Nigerian offshore oil field to China’s Sinopec in a $2.5 billion deal. The block in question, OML 138 is a 180,000 bpd facility. So, if a 20 percent stake in an 180,000 bpd facility offshore block is worth $2.5 billion, the entire block is worth $12.5 billion i.e 100/20 x $2.5 billion. Since a 180,000 bpd-producing facility is worth $12.5 billion, a 200,000 bpd-producing facility is worth $13.8 billion because 200,000/180,000 x $12.5 billion. Using the Total-Sinopec deal as the yardstick, we could also value OML 127 at $13.8 billion. In that case, her 60 percent stake would be worth $8.3 billion. But to be conservative, we prefer to go with the lower valuation of $6.44 billion. On Debt Ventures Africa reached out to Famfa Limited to comment, but the company declined to divulge any information regarding any long-term or short-term debt. We have no idea on how much debt (if any, the company has), but even if we take the high side, and subtract 50 percent of the value of her stake for debt, that still gives her 60 percent stake in OML 127 a market value of $3.2 billion, which makes her richer than the $2.7 billion Oprah Winfrey is worth according to Forbes Magazine’s last rankings. Real Estate: $100 million Folorunsho Alakija also has a real estate portfolio worth over $100 million. Earlier this year, Nigerian and British media announced that Alakija acquired a property at One Hyde Park for $102 million. See media coverage here and here A source at Famfa Oil who asked for anonymity indeed confirmed that Mrs. Alakija actually acquired the property at One Hyde Park. Private Jet Alakija owns a Bombardier Global Express 6000 which she bought earlier this year for a reported $46 million. PHILANTHROPY Folorunsho Alakija is the founder of the Rose of Sharon foundation, a Christian-based charity which gives out small grants to widows. PERSONAL Alakija is married to Modupe Alakija and they have four grown-up sons together. She also has a grandchild from her first son. Modupe Alakija, her husband is the Chairman of Famfa Oil. Her sons run the compan

Taylor Swift quer que Harry Styles mude de estilo: O relacionamento entre Harry Styles, membro integrante dos One Direction, e Taylor Swift tem sido dos assuntos mais falados no momento. Ao londo do primeiro dia de 2013, a imagem do beijo do casal na passagem de ano foi a mais procurada no google. A estrela country disse que está cansada que inventem rumores sobre o seu relacionamento com Harry mas as notícias sobre as instabilidades do namoro têm sido notícia, tweet e post um pouco por toda a internet. Segundo a Now Magazine, revista inglesa, Taylor Swift terá pedido ao membro da boysband britânica que se resolva e decida o seu estilo quando os dois saem juntos. Fonte disse à revista que Taylor «adora o estilo britânico e elegante do cantor. Aliás foi a primeira coisa que a atraiu. Mas ela diz que torna-se estranho quando estão juntos e ela veste um vestido de estilista enquanto ele veste calças de ganga e camisolas velhas e usadas». Jenny Pakham e Kate Spade são os nomes que mais veste - desde que contratou Stacey Kalchman, Swift tem sido elogiada pelas suas roupas chegando a ser eleita das celebridades mais bem vestidas de 2012. Talvez por isso a mesma fonte tenha acrescentado que a cantora tinha sugerido ao namorado que «a sua consultora de moda deveria colaborar com a dele quando os dois saíssem em público. Ela gosta mesmo dele e vê um futuro a longo prazo na relação mas eles têm de parecer um casal apresentável e impecavelmente vestido», acrescentou a mesma fonte. O casal de músicos começou a namorar em novembro mas o relacionamento só foi oficializado no final desse mês quando os dois se beijaram nos estúdios de X-Factor. Apesar de Harry ter-se mostrado compreensivo e receptivo às exigências de Taylor as críticas ao estilo do jovem astro da pop chatearam alguns elementos da equipa de moda dos 1D. «É quase impossível fazer com que um dos rapazes se vista de maneira diferente do resto da banda», comentou um dos mebros da equipa.«Qualquer mudança significativa no estilo de Harry teria de ser aprovada pela editora».

But today I won't make one more Cliché And write this poem to you. No, no more clichés. This poem is dedicated to those women Whose beauty is in their charm, In their intelligence, In their character, Not on their fabricated looks. --Octavio Paz Paz was a super super genius. Here enjoy the whole poem :) No More Clichés Beautiful face That like a daisy opens its petals to the sun So do you Open your face to me as I turn the page. Enchanting smile Any man would be under your spell, Oh, beauty of a magazine. How many poems have been written to you? How many Dantes have written to you, Beatrice? To your obsessive illusion To you manufacture fantasy. But today I won't make one more Cliché And write this poem to you. No, no more clichés. This poem is dedicated to those women Whose beauty is in their charm, In their intelligence, In their character, Not on their fabricated looks. This poem is to you women, That like a Shahrazade wake up Everyday with a new story to tell, A story that sings for change That hopes for battles: Battles for the love of the united flesh Battles for passions aroused by a new day Battle for the neglected rights Or just battles to survive one more night. Yes, to you women in a world of pain To you, bright star in this ever-spending universe To you, fighter of a thousand-and-one fights To you, friend of my heart. From now on, my head won't look down to a magazine Rather, it will contemplate the night And its bright stars, And so, no more clichés. Octavio Paz

Wiz Khalifa sort sa première mixtape, Prince of the City: Welcome to Pistolvania, en 2005. La mixtape a conduit à son premier album intitulé Show and Prove en 2006. Le magazine Rolling Stone le considère alors comme un artiste « à surveiller6 ». En 2007, Khalifa signe chez Warner Bros. Records et sort deux mixtapes sous le label Rostrum Records : Grow Season, par DJ Green Lantern et sorti le 4 juillet 2007, et Prince of the City 2, sorti le 20 novembre 2007. Son premier single Say Yeah atteint la 25e place au classement Billboard Rhythmic Top 40 et la 20e au Billboard's Hot Rap Tracks. Veuillez noter que la chanson sample Better Off Alone par Alice Deejay est tout simplement un autre nom pour la désigner. Khalifa est apparu avec Game, David Banner et Play-N-Skillz à U92's Summer Jam à l'amphithéâtre USANA à West Valley City, Utah, le 2 août 2008. Khalifa a publié les mixtapes Star Power en septembre 2008 et Flight School en avril 2009 sur le label Rostrum Records. Wiz Khalifa se sépare de Warner Bros Records en juillet 2009, après de nombreux retards dans la sortie de son second album. Khalifa a déclaré à la Pittsburgh Post-Gazette qu'il a « beaucoup appris avec eux et mûri en tant qu'artiste au cours du processus. [Il est] heureux de partir avec tous [ses] matériels et avoir la chance de pouvoir contrôler de [ses] prochaines actions7 ». Poursuivant son association avec Rostrum Records, Khalifa sort le single Teach U To Fly et la mixtape How Fly, en collaboration avec le rappeur de La Nouvelle-Orléans Curren$y, le 9 août 2009. Khalifa a introduit un style plus mélodique sur la mixtape, alternant entre chant et rap. Il a été la première partie du membre de Wu-Tang Clan U-God au CMJ Music Marathon 2009 à New York8. Khalifa a sorti son deuxième album, Deal or No Deal le 24 novembre 2009. Khalifa s'est produit au festival South by Southwest à Austin, au Texas, en mars 20109. Il est apparu sur la couverture du magazine XXL du même mois, pour la liste annuelle du magazine de Top 10 Freshman, qui comprenait Donnis, J. Cole, Pill, Freddie Gibbs, et Fashawn. Il a fait une tournée de 20 dates avec le rappeur Yelawolf, le Deal Or No Deal Tour. Khalifa a publié la mixtape Kush & Orange Juice qui est en téléchargement gratuit depuis le 14 avril 2010. Grâce à ses fans dévoués, la mixtape est devenu le sujet le plus présent sur Twitter avec le hashtag #kushandorangejuice et « Kush and Orange Juice download », qui a été la recherche la plus effectuée sur Google10. Citant le milieu de l'industrie de la musique, le New York Magazine a écrit que Khalifa avait signé avec Atlantic Records en avril 2010, bien que le rappeur ne l'ait pas confirmé11. Il a déclaré au site web AllHipHop en juin 2010 qu'il travaillait sur un nouvel album, tout en ne sachant pas sous quel label le distribuer12. Le 30 juillet, il confirme finalement sur MTV qu'il a signé chez Atlantic13. Il a été désigné par les internautes de MTV Hottest Breakthrough MC of 201014. Il a récemment enregistré un nouveau morceau avec Snoop Dogg "That Good" qui fait déjà fureur aux États-Unis[réf. nécessaire]. Ce dernier a annoncé dans l'émission radio de DJ Skee qu'ils collaboraient dans un film appelé "High School" qui devait normalement sortir le 20 avril 2011 mais qui est finalement reporté au 3 juillet 2012. En effet, le tournage a été interrompu après qu'une vidéo de Snoop Dogg dans une salle de classe diffusée sur Youtube ait choqué la direction de l’établissement. Wiz Khalifa et Snoop Dogg ont décidé de sortir un album avant le film High School nommé Mac And Devin Go To High School qui sort le 13 décembre 2011. La couverture est inspirée du film. Son dernier album Rolling Papers sorti le 29 mars 2011 comprend des featurings de Curren$y, Too Short. Le premier extrait, Roll Up, est écrit en collaboration avec Cassie qui fait une apparition dans le clip. Peu après, le titre Black and Yellow se classe en tête des singles aux États-Unis. Wiz Khalifa se révèle véritablement au grand public avec un autre extrait, No Sleep. Considéré par beaucoup comme un album complet, Rolling Papers est un des rares albums où toutes les chansons de l'artiste sont considérés comme des "tubes". Khalifa veut, malgré la variété de l'album (le rap est mélangé à de la musique plus douce), garder quelques références en termes de rap américain, comme On my level, réalisé avec Too $hort, ou encore Rooftops, réalisé avec Curren$y. Le 13 mars 2012, Wiz Khalifa sort la mixtape Taylor Allderdice qui comporte des titres comme "California" ou le tube qui rassemble tous les rappeurs du Taylor Gang : "The Code". Mais le titre qui a fait le plus parler de lui est "O.N.I.F.C." qui porte le nom de son futur album (sortie prévue le 18 septembre 2012). Le premier single "Work Hard, Play Hard" est un réel succès comme l'a été Black And Yellow. Wiz Khalifa a annoncé la sortie de sa nouvelle mixtape qui se nomme "Live in concert" en featuring avec Curren$y qui est malheureusement repoussée à une date indéfinie. Le 18 septembre (date prévue pour la sortie d'O.N.I.F.C.) Wiz Khalifa déclare via son site web que la sortie de l'album sera retardée et sortira finalement le 4 décembre. Il publie alors la mixtape Cabin Fever 2 le 16 octobre en attendant O.N.I.F.C. prévu pour le 4 décembre.
TRUE STORY! A few years ago I was getting these really insane water bills. I mean HIGH! So I decided to dig some wells in my yard to have water for my landscape. I live alone, so I know it had to be from watering the grass. So I hired a company to come out and dig these wells. The foreman and I walked all around my yard and as we were walking he was putting down flags. I asked what the flags were for. He said, "The flags represent good places to dig for water." I asked, "Why do you have so many flags?" He said, "I'm not sure if any of these places will produce water." I said, "Hold up, you mean if you dig all these spots and don't hit water I still have to pay you?" He said, "Yes, that's how it goes." I said, "Ok, fine." Needless to say, he dug three wells and never hit water. I said, "Just stop." I got a few more extreme water bills and called him back. He said, "Are you sure?" I said, "Yes, keep drilling until you hit water." The next well he dug he was down 500 feet and still didn't hit any water. He asked if I wanted him to stop. I said, "Go deeper." He dug down another 200 feet and still nothing. I said, "Go deeper." He drilled another 200 feet and he hit rock. I said, "Blast it, cut it, do whatever you have to do but keep digging." After fighting the rock and breaking his drill and getting a new one we got a little deeper. He said, "We are at 1,200 feet, why do you want me to keep going?" I said, "Cause I'm tired of these water bills and I'm going to do something about it." He said, "But this is really deep." I asked him if he had hit water yet. He said "no," so I told him to go deeper. "But you don't understand," he said. "We don't usually drill this deep, this is going to be expensive." I told him that, "Sometimes you have to go deeper to get what you are after, no matter what the cost." He started the machine and went down another four inches and hit a river of water. Just a few inches separated me from getting my breakthrough. That was five years ago and that well has never run dry. In 2013 I want you to apply that to your life in all ways. Sometimes you will spend time on a thing and it will produce no water. Don't be afraid to move on to another spot. YOU CAN'T HAVE FEAR. I don't care how much time you put into it. If the well is dry MOVE ON! Nothing lives where there is no living water. Be it a relationship, a job, a business, don't be afraid to move to another spot. Now, on the other hand, if you are digging your well and you are sure that it is not only where you want to be but where God wants you to be, then keep digging in that same spot. Don't stop digging until you hit a river of blessings. Don't stop praying until you live in the change you've been waiting for. Don't stop pushing until you deliver your breakthrough. Yes, it will get difficult. Yes, you may hit rock. Yes, there will be a cost. But when you get to what God is trying to get you to, YOU WILL RECOVER IT ALL! One of my favorite scriptures says that. "PURSUE AND YOU SHALL RECOVER IT ALL!" Some people give up when they are only inches away!! Happy New Year. DDDDIIGGGGGG! People DIG!!!
I would go even further than Bryan Caplan here, I actually think the entire marketing push of social science that social media encourages may actually in the end not facilitate the spread of sound scientific thinking but destroy it. Video did kill the radio star -- it is unclear that Madonna is the sort of singer/performer that say Billie Holiday was though no doubt she had a wider reach; and I do fear that if we keep pushing for more "fame" and "acceptance", we may lose the substance of the scientific ideas that form the basis for (or should form the basis of) libertarianism. The consistent and persistent applications of the teachings of economics to the field of public policy. To do that you need to know economics -- not think you know, but really know. That means you need to devote a lot of time to study to master the economic way of thinking. There is no soft peddling of that. Even if you don't want to devote your life to economics, to be a serious libertarian thinker you need to study economics as if you were. Otherwise, you are just engaged in wishful thinking about a world that fits with your priors at any point in your life and thus in an unsystematic manner. I don't think we want as the "face" of an intellectual movement unsystematic thinkers do we? Shouldn't our goal be to spread the scientific knowledge of economics to rid the world of costly and in some instances deadly policy choices. That isn't about "feelings", it is about reason and evidence. BTW, as an aside, the number of excellent female economic students I have met over the past 2 years has been phenomenal. But again the conversation was started NOT by someone wanting to discuss social science, but a popular political movement.
Yup. Indeed, studies have found that irrespective of sex, libertarians are more cognitive and less emotional. So yes, I would expect a sex-divide as well.
Megan Fox Megan Denise Fox (born May 16, 1986) is an American actress and model. She began her acting career in 2001, with several minor television and film roles, and played a regular role on the Hope & Faith television show. In 2004, she made her film debut with a role in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. In 2007, she co-starred as Mikaela Banes, the love interest of Shia LaBeouf's character, in the blockbuster film, Transformers, which became her breakout role. Fox reprised her role in the 2009 sequel, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Later in 2009, she starred as the eponymous lead in the film Jennifer's Body. Fox is also considered as one of the modern female sex symbols and has appeared in magazines such as Maxim and FHM. Early life Fox was born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, the daughter of Gloria Darlene (née Cisson) and Franklin Thomas Fox. She has stated that she has Irish, French, and Native American ancestry. She was raised "very strictly Pentecostal", but later attended Catholic school for 12 years. Fox's parents divorced when she was young. Fox's mother later remarried, and she and her sister were raised by her mother and her stepfather, Tony Tonachio. She said that the two were "very strict" and that she was not allowed to have a boyfriend or invite friends to her house. She lived with her mother until she made enough money to support herself. Fox began her training in drama and dance at age five, in Kingston, Tennessee. She attended a dance class at the community center there and was involved in Kingston Elementary School's chorus and the Kingston Clippers swim team. At 10 years of age, after moving to St. Petersburg, Florida, Fox continued her training. When she was 13 years old, Fox began modeling after winning several awards at the 1999 American Modeling and Talent Convention in Hilton Head, South Carolina. At age 17, she tested out of school via correspondence in order to move to Los Angeles. Fox has spoken extensively of her time in education; that in middle school she was bullied and picked on and she ate lunch in the bathroom to avoid being "pelted with ketchup packets". She said that the problem was not her looks, but that she had "always gotten along better with boys" and that "rubbed some people the wrong way". Fox also said of high school that she was never popular and that "everyone hated me, and I was a total outcast, my friends were always guys, I have a very aggressive personality, and girls didn’t like me for that. I’ve had only one great girlfriend my whole life". In the same interview, she mentions that she hated school and has never been "a big believer in formal education" and that "the education I was getting seemed irrelevant. So, I was sort of checked out on that part of it". Career At 16, Fox made her acting debut in the 2001 film Holiday in the Sun, as spoiled heiress Brianna Wallace and rival of Alex Stewart (Ashley Olsen), which was released direct-to-DVD on November 20, 2001. In the next several years she guest-starred on What I Like About You and Two and a Half Men, as well as being an uncredited extra in Bad Boys II (2003). In 2004, she made her film debut in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen co-starring opposite Lindsay Lohan, playing the supporting role of Carla Santini, a rival of Lola (Lohan). Fox was also cast in a regular role on the ABC sitcom Hope & Faith, in which she portrayed Sydney Shanowski, replacing Nicole Paggi. Fox appeared in seasons 2 to 3, until the show was cancelled in 2006. In 2007, Fox won the lead female role of Mikaela Banes in the 2007 live-action film Transformers, based on the toy and cartoon saga of the same name. Fox played the love interest of Shia LaBeouf's character Sam Witwicky. Fox was nominated for an MTV Movie Award in the category of "Breakthrough Performance", and was also nominated for three Teen Choice Awards. Fox had signed on for two more Transformers sequels. Fox reprised her role as Mikaela Banes in the Transformer sequel, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. There was some controversy surrounding Fox's appearance while filming the sequel of Transformers when Michael Bay, the film's director, ordered the actress to gain 10 pounds. The film was released worldwide on June 24, 2009. Fox was to star in the third installment, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, but was not included because of her statements comparing working under director Bay to working for Hitler (see below). Co-star Shia LaBeouf said, "Criticism is one thing. Then there's public name-calling, which turns into high-school bashing. Which you can't do." Bay similarly amended his previous statements of support of Fox, and told GQ in June that Fox was fired on orders of executive producer Steven Spielberg. After departing the Transformers franchise, Fox had her first lead role playing the title character in Jennifer's Body, written by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody. In April 2009, Fox began filming Jonah Hex, in which she portrayed Leila, a gun-wielding beauty and Jonah Hex's (Josh Brolin) love interest. The film was released on June 18, 2010. Despite receiving top billing, Fox described her role in the film as being a cameo. Jonah Hex was a critical and commercial failure in the U.S., with its international distribution cancelled after its poor performance. The film was named the "worst picture of the year by the Houston Film Critics Society. Fox next starred alongside Mickey Rourke in Passion Play. The film's poor reception at the Toronto Film festival led to its conventional theatrical distribution being bypassed for a direct-to-video release, with only two screens briefly showing the film to fulfill contractual obligations. Mickey Rourke remarked that Passion Play was "terrible. Another terrible movie.". Fox was the voice of the Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins in the Na Nai'a Legend of the Dolphins, a 3D documentary film. The story is told by a cast including Kate Winslet, Ellen Page, Gerard Butler, James Franco, Julian Lennon, Diego Luna, Cheech Marin, Whoopi Goldberg, Isabella Rossellini and Daryl Hannah. In March 2009, Variety reported that Fox was set to star as the lead role of Aspen Matthews in the film adaption of the comic book Fathom which she will also co-produce with Brian Austin Green. Fox appeared with Dominic Monaghan in the music video for Eminem and Rihanna's single "Love the Way You Lie". In 2012, she appeared briefly in Sacha Baron Cohen's comedy The Dictator and in a featured role Judd Apatow's comedy This Is 40. She was the voice of Lois Lane in the film Robot Chicken DC Comics Special, an episode of the television comedy series Robot Chicken, and it aired as a one-off special during Cartoon Network's Adult Swim on September 9, 2012. Image During an interview with The Times, on the topic of being a role model, Fox stated: "It depends on what your idea of a role model is," and continued with, "If your idea of a role model is somebody who’s gonna preach to your kids that sex before marriage is wrong and cursing is wrong and women should be this and be that, then I’m not a role model. But if you want your girls to feel strong and intelligent and be outspoken and fight for what they think is right, then I want to be that type of role model, yeah."In the same interview, Fox spoke of being typecast. "Getting typecast as what? Attractive? How bad is that?" she stated, feeling that it is not a bad thing to be typecast in this way. She said that she considers it flattering, and believes that it gives her an advantage to surprise people when she does give a good performance because they will not be expecting her to be more than simply attractive. Fox has shown interest in portraying a character less sexualized than that of Mikaela Banes, whom she portrayed in the Transformers film series. Fox said of being a popular media topic that, though she is not on the same level as Jennifer Aniston, Britney Spears, or Lindsay Lohan, she does find it difficult and that there have been times when people have avoided being around her because they do not want to end up in the media's spotlight. "I need to behave in a way and handle myself in a way that will cause people to take me seriously," she said, "[and] you can be sexy and be intelligent and be taken seriously, or you can be sexy and you can be out at clubs every night and not be [taken seriously]" but that she has not gone "completely insane". Fox also said of going from being "relatively unknown" to her current celebrity status that: "I definitely feel ill-prepared; I mean, I don't know if anyone ever sits back and goes, 'Now is the moment that I think I should be a famous celebrity,' – but I definitely feel it's premature. I mean, I was in one movie that people have seen. Fox has appeared on the covers of many magazines. In 2007, she appeared in Maxim; in 2008, the list had grown to include Cosmo Girl,Paw Print, Jack (ITALY), FHM (UK), and GQ. In 2009, the list includes, USA Weekend, Esquire, Empire, Maxim, GQ (UK), Entertainment Weekly and ELLE. Fox was ranked No.17 on interview magazines Hollywood faces to watch "Future Stars of Tomorrow", ranked No.16 on the Maxim magazine Hot 100 of 2008 list, named No.68 in FHM magazine's "100 Sexiest Women in the World 2006" supplement, ranked No.18 on the Maxim magazine Hot 100 of 2007 list, she was ranked No.1 on Moviefone's 'The 25 Hottest Actors Under 25' in 2008, and was ranked No.2 on the Maxim magazine Hot 100 of 2009 list in 2009. FHM readers voted her the "Sexiest Woman in the World" in 2008. In 2011, Men's Health named her one of the "100 Hottest Women of All-Time", ranking her at No. 14. People named her one of 2012 Most Beautiful at Every Age. In 2012, Fox revealed that making "most beautiful woman" lists is just a part of the job in Hollywood, and stated "You know, lists like this – and there are plenty – generally, we elect the girl who plays in the biggest blockbuster of the year." In late July 2009, Fox's alleged overexposure in parts of the media caused several men's websites to boycott her. AOL's man-blog Asylum dubbed August 4, 2009 "A Day Without Megan Fox" with the promise that the site would not mention or feature her on this day; they asked other men's sites to copy this stance, and several (such as AskMen.com, Just a Guy Thing, and Banned in Hollywood) complied. "Listen, we love Megan," Eric Rogell of TheBachelorGuy.com told New York Daily News. "She's responsible for driving more eyeballs to our sites – just by getting photographed walking down the street in a white T-shirt – than any other celeb alive. [But] it's time to give another young actress a shot at the attention." Other sites, however, refused to boycott Fox, with Asylum's sister site Popeater declaring "we're posting things about Megan Fox that aren't even news, just because we know you want it, whether you'll admit it or not" and Coedmagazine calling the boycott a "publicity stunt" and "hypocritical", saying that they were the home of "The Megan Fox Boycott Boycott". The British newspaper The Sun declared August 4 to be "Megan Fox Day", saying that "She deserves a day dedicated to her". In response to the boycott, Fox told magazine Nylon, in a September 2009 interview, that "the media blitz" for Transformers resulted in an over-extension of her welcome in the media. "I was part of a movie that [the studio] wanted to make sure would make $700 million, so they oversaturated the media with their stars," she said."I don't want to have people get completely sick of me before I’ve ever even done something legitimate." By 2010, Fox became much less prominent in the media, after starring in the less commercially successful films Jonah Hex and Passion Play. Recent reports suggested that "it feels like it's been years since we've heard about [Megan Fox]"; however, her pregnancy in 2012 and her role in Friends with Kids brought her some attention in 2012. On September 11, 2009, an unsigned letter from three crew members of Transformers defended Michael Bay against accusations reportedly made by Fox about his on-set behavior, including a comparison with Adolf Hitler. The letter alleges that Fox is unpleasant to work with on set and makes several accusations of ungracious behavior that are at variance with her public persona. Bay defended Fox and has said that he does not "condone" the letter. Anthony Steinhart, a production assistant who worked on Transformers, also came out in her defense, stating that he had never "...witnessed Ms. Fox being rude or inconsiderate of people’s feelings or the work to be done" Fox has often been compared to actress Angelina Jolie, with the media dubbing her as the "next Angelina Jolie". The actresses have been compared partly because they each have a "tattoo collection", and status as a "built in sex-symbol". Fox commented that the comparisons indicate a lack of creativity on the part of the media, and are simply due to the dark hair and tattoos that she and Jolie have, and that both have been in action movies. There were several unconfirmed rumors that Fox was to replace Jolie in the next Lara Croft film. Fox also said of the comparisons that: "I am a brunette with tattoos, I curse and I have made mention of sex before. I joked about it which people find outrageous so they want to constantly compare that to her." Fox remarked, "I'm sure she has no idea who I am. But if I were her, I'd be like, 'Who the fuck is this little bullshit brat who was in Transformers that's going to be the next me?' I don't want to meet her. I'd be embarrassed." Fox has eight known tattoos, including her husband's name "Brian" on her lower hip, a picture of Marilyn Monroe's face on her right forearm, which she is now getting removed, and a crescent moon overlapping a five-pointed star above her right ankle. This tattoo is the only known colored tattoo that Fox has.

It may be the scandal of 2012. And God forbid that it becomes the scandal of 2013. Think back over this past year. What grabbed the attention of evangelical Christians? The presidential election. Mitt Romney’s Mormonism. Remember “Linsanity”—the excitement over the New York Knick’s Christian basketball star? There was the fight over religious freedom and the HHS mandate (although, let’s be clear, it’s taken many evangelicals far too long to pay attention to that threat). Social justice is a recurring theme, especially among younger Christians. All well and good. But something’s missing on the list. Something that should have the Church shouting from the rooftops. But instead, like the Obama Administration and the media, American Christians for the most part remained stone silent about the outrageous, brutal, and systematic persecution of Christians—especially in the Islamic world. Look, I’m guilty too. This wasn’t on my radar until I recorded this weekend’s “BreakPoint This Week” radio show with WORLD magazine columnist Mindy Belz and Ed Stetzer of LifeWay Research. As we looked back at all the issues that Christians focused on in 2012, Mindy pointed out that the persecution of Christians is perhaps our biggest blind spot. And she’s right. Mindy’s done a great job reporting on the murderous rampage of the Islamic group Boko Haram against Christians in Nigeria. Church bombings, machete attacks, targeted killing of church leaders. You name it. Yet the Administration was silent. Or worse. A recent Wall Street Journal article quoted an administration official, who “sanitized the intentions of this murderous group” by claiming that "The bulk of the Boko Haram movement is . . . trying to do everything in its power to show that the (Nigerian) government is ineffective.” But as the article points out, however, “two months before the official spoke, Boko Haram had claimed responsibility for the murder of dozens of Christians in the city of Jos—just one of many such attacks.” And of course, it’s not just Nigeria. Entire Christian communities have disappeared in Iraq. In Syria, Christians are being targeted by Islamist radicals mixed in with the Syrian opposition forces. Mindy reported on this way back in February of 2012. As Mindy reported, “According to … sources, Islamic militants fighting the regime of President Bashar al-Assad have killed more than 200 Christians in [Homs)… in recent days, including entire families with young children. They’ve also kidnapped Christians and demanded ransom payments.” And that was almost a year ago! How many Syrian Christians have perished since? Just three days ago, the UK’s Daily Mail reported that Islamists beheaded a Christian taxi driver. Where’s the American press? Again, why is this Administration silent? Writer Jeffrey Goldberg at the Atlantic may have the answer. He wrote: “The most under-covered story these days is the sustained assault by Islamist terrorists on Christians . . I don't know precisely why this story, and stories like it, disappear so quickly, though I assume it has something to do with the seeming unwillingness of Christian churches in the West to stand up for their persecuted brethren in countries like Nigeria.” God have mercy on us if that’s true. OK. So now what? What do we do? First, learn more about the issue. Come to BreakPoint.org; click on this commentary. We have got several articles there you need to read. We’ll also link you to my “BreakPoint This Week” interview with Mindy Belz and Ed Stetzer. Second, talk about Christian persecution to your family and friends. Support groups that help persecuted Christians. Spread the word on Facebook and Twitter. Write or phone your congressman and the administration. Letters to the editor. Hey pastors, how about highlighting the persecuted church once a month from the pulpit? Whatever you can think of, do it. But most of all, pray for our brothers and sisters persecuted for their faith. For their sake, we cannot remain silent.

Great article from P.R. Insider... "I am indebted to the press of the United States for almost every dollar which I possess..." P.T. Barnum Named by Life Magazine as one of the top 100 most important people of the millennium, the "the patron saint of promoters" understanding and creative use of the power of publicity earned his place in the Public Relations Hall of Fame. Entrepreneur, master showman, million-selling book author, and politician, Barnum has indelibly left his mark. He is credited with coining the phrases, "throw your hat in the ring", "let's get the show on the road," "rain or shine," and "the greatest show on earth". Ironically, the phrase he's most associated with, "there's a sucker born every minute" was actually said by a rival. In an age when there were no radios, motion pictures, or Disney, and few other means of entertainment, P.T. Barnum filled the void with his colorful museum and circus. Utilizing a combination of striking, provocative ads and creative public relations, Barnum realized the value of working with the press -- "there was only one liquid a man could use in excessive quantities without being swallowed up by it, and that was printers ink." Here are some examples of Barnum's public relations efforts that a more innocent America ate up: He had an elephant plow the fields on his property. Why? His land faced a busy rail line that carried bored travelers into New York City. Barnum knew an elephant would grab their attention and provide an unforgettable publicity stunt. "Newspaper reporters came from far and near, and wrote glowing accounts of the elephantine performances," Barnum wrote. To gather crowds outside his museum, he publicized "Free Music for the Millions," a band that played music on the balcony. However, Barnum confessed to his ulterior motives, "I took pains to select and maintain the poorest band I could find -- one whose discordant notes would drive the crowd into the Museum, out of the earshot of my orchestra." He made sure to honor and celebrate special holidays. On St. Patrick's Day, Barnum featured Irish performers, a model of Dublin and other Irish events. When a man walked into Barnum's office looking for work, he gave the man minimal wages and asked him to take a few bricks out to the corner. The man was instructed to place the bricks down . . . then exchange them continuously. Naturally, a large crowd of curious onlookers gathered. Every hour, the "brick man" would enter Barnum's Museum, along with several curious patrons. Barnum claimed this stunt had the pure elements of his promotional philosophy: "it employed novelty, demonstrated ingenuity, and achieved free publicity". He practically invented the idea of advance public relations. Weeks before his show entered a new town, Barnum would send a special train coach designed to attract crowds and build anticipation of his upcoming show's arrival. He employed three public relations agents who would plant stories in local papers and provide a behind-the-scenes preview for local journalists. Barnum created and circulated the Advance Courier, a bogus illustrated newspaper designed to intrigue the public. The "articles" were written almost entirely by Barnum himself. The highlight of the newspaper was a two-page spread of a 33-point list of why "every man, woman and child" in America had to come see the "Greatest Show on Earth." When his show arrived in town, he'd attract attention with a huge parade, featuring his star attraction, Jumbo the Elephant.

THE SHOCKING ENVIROMENTAL COST OF RENEWABLE ENERGY Important article by Professor Clive Hambler, a lecturer in biological and human sciences at Oxford University and published in the The Spectator Magazine. Following a new extracts, but worth a read in full. “Wind farms are devastating populations of rare birds and bats across the world, driving some to the point of extinction. Most environmentalists just don’t want to know. Because they’re so desperate to believe in renewable energy, they’re in a state of denial. But the evidence suggests that, this century at least, renewables pose a far greater threat to wildlife than climate change. “My speciality is species extinction. …….Species extinction is a serious issue: around the world we’re losing up to 40 a day. Yet environmentalists are urging us to adopt technologies that are hastening this process. Among the most destructive of these is wind power.” “Every year in Spain alone — according to research by the conservation group SEO/Birdlife — between 6 and 18 million birds and bats are killed by wind farms…….And these figures may be conservative if you compare them to statistics published in December 2002 by the California Energy Commission: ‘In a summary of avian impacts at wind turbines by Benner et al (1993) bird deaths per turbine per year were as high as 309 in Germany and 895 in Sweden.’ ” “Why is the public not more aware of this carnage? First, because the wind industry (with the shameful complicity of some ornithological organisations) has gone to great trouble to cover it up…. “Second, because the ongoing obsession with climate change means that many environmentalists are turning a blind eye to the ecological costs of renewable energy. What they clearly don’t appreciate — for they know next to nothing about biology — is that most of the species they claim are threatened by ‘climate change’ have already survived 10 to 20 ice ages, and sea-level rises far more dramatic than any we have experienced in recent millennia or expect in the next few centuries. “Climate change won’t drive those species to extinction; well-meaning environmentalists might.” FOOTNOTE – Under current Australian Government policies up to 7,000 industrial wind turbines could be built by 2020 to meet so-called “renewable energy targets” http://www.spectator.co.uk/features/8807761/wind-farms-vs-wildlife/
Wind turbines only last for ‘half as long as previously thought’, according to a new study. But even in their short lifespans, those turbines can do a lot of damage. Wind farms are devastating populations of rare birds and bats across the world, driving some to the point of extinction. Most environm...
Hello fans!!! For any of you disputing whether Ashley Tisdale is right for the role or not can look at my argument. First of all, the directors and the casting people know what they are doing and have spent months locating the PERFECT actors/actress'. Secondly, if any of you have read the books, then you will know that Chloe is actually a blonde! The old movies had Janaya Stephens cast as Chloe and she was a brunette. So already, we are seeing that this movie will be closer to the books than the original series! Thank you!
2 Days ago In Black History • January 2, 1884 Oscar Devereaux Micheaux, author and film director, was born in Metropolis, Illinois. Micheaux formed his own movie company and in 1919 became the first African American to write, direct, and produce a motion picture, “The Homesteader.” Between 1919 and 1948, Micheaux wrote seven novels and wrote, directed, and produced 44 feature films, including “Within Our Gates” (1919), which attacked the racism depicted in “The Birth of a Nation,” and “Body and Soul” (1924) which introduced Paul Robeson.

The Oscar Micheaux Award is presented annually by the Producers Guild of America. For his contribution to the motion picture industry, Micheaux has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and in 1994 a documentary film, “Midnight Ramble,” was released about him. In 2010, the United States Postal Service issued a commemorative postage stamp in his honor. Micheaux’s biography, “Oscar Micheaux, The Great and Only: The Life of America’s First Black Filmmaker,” was published in 2007 and the Oscar Micheaux Center in Gregory, South Dakota annually presents the Oscar Micheaux Film & Book Festival. • January 2, 1898 Sadie Tanner Mossell Alexander, the first African American woman to receive a Ph.D. in the United States, was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Later, he moved to New York City where he worked at an advertising agency while contributing cartoons to various magazines. Campbell’s cartoon artwork was in almost every issue of Esquire Magazine from 1933 to 1958 and he also contributed cartoons to Cosmopolitan, Ebony, The New Yorker, and Playboy. His cartoon panel, “Cuties,” was syndicated in more than 145 newspapers and was later collected in a paperback book. Campbell died January 27, 1971. • January 2, 1913 Juanita Jackson Mitchell, the first African American woman to practice law in Maryland, was born in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Mitchell earned her Bachelor of Science degree cum laude in education and her Master of Arts degree in sociology from the University of Pennsylvania in 1931 and 1935, respectively. From 1935 to 1938, she served as national youth director for the NAACP. In 1950, Mitchell became the first African American woman to graduate from the University of Maryland School of Law and the first admitted to the Maryland bar. Mitchell served as president of the Baltimore branch of the NAACP and filed many cases to desegregate public facilities, including restaurants, parks, and swimming pools. She was named to the White House Conference on Women and Civil Rights by President John F. Kennedy and in 1966 was named to the White House Conference to Fulfill These Rights by President Lyndon B. Johnson. In 1987, Mitchell was inducted into the Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame. Mitchell died July 7, 1992 and annually the NAACP awards the Juanita Jackson Mitchell Legal Activism Award to a unit for exemplary legal redress committee activities. • January 2, 1915 John Hope Franklin, historian and author, was born in Rentiesville, Oklahoma. Franklin earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Fisk University in 1935 and his Master of Arts degree and Ph.D. in history from Harvard University in 1936 and 1941, respectively. In the early 1950s, he served on the NAACP Legal Defense Fund team that helped develop the sociological case for Brown v. Board of Education. Franklin’s teaching career began at Fisk University. From 1947 to 1956, he taught at Howard University and from 1956 to 1964 served as chair of the history department at Brooklyn College, the first person of color to head a major history department. From 1964 to 1968, Franklin was a professor of history at the University of Chicago and chair of the department from 1967 to 1970. In 1983, he was appointed the James B. Duke Professor of History at Duke University. Franklin published his autobiography, “Mirror to America: The Autobiography of John Hope Franklin,” in 2005. In it he said “my challenge was to weave into the fabric of American history enough of the presence of Blacks so that the story of the United States could be told adequately and fairly.” Franklin authored numerous other books, including “The Free Negro in North Carolina, 1790-1860” (1943) and “Racial Equality in America” (1976). In 1976, the National Endowment for the Humanities selected Franklin for the Jefferson Lecture, the federal government’s highest honor for achievement in the humanities. Other honors and awards include the Charles Frankel Prize in 1993, the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1995, the nation’s highest civilian honor, both presented by President William Clinton, the NAACP Spingarn Medal in 1995, and the John W. Kluge Prize in 2006 for lifetime achievement in the study of humanity. Franklin died March 25, 2009. • January 2, 1936 Paul Douglas Freeman, conductor and music director, was born in Richmond, Virginia. Freeman started piano lessons at the age of five and soon after also started playing the clarinet. He earned his Bachelor of Music degree in 1956, his Master of Music degree in 1957, and his Ph.D. in 1963, all from the Eastman School of Music. While at Eastman, Freeman served as conductor of the Opera Theater of Rochester from 1961 to 1966. Despite his training, it took Freeman several years to consistently land conducting engagements because of his race and being an American. Most U.S. orchestras were conducted by European conductors. In 1967, Freeman won the Dmitri Mitropoulos Conducting Competition. In 1968, he was hired as associate conductor of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and in 1970 became composer- in- residence of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. In the mid-1970s, Freeman recorded a series of nine albums titled “The Black Composers Series” which were critically and commercially successful and in 1979 was named music director for the Victoria, British Columbia Symphony Orchestra. In 1987, Freeman co-founded the Chicago Sinfonietta, a group dedicated to the presentation of works by composers of various ethnic backgrounds. They were particularly noted for presenting works by black composers. In 1996, Freeman was named music director for the Czech National Philharmonic Orchestra and in the early 2000s launched an African Heritage Symphonic Series of recordings. Freeman is recognized as one of the first major African American orchestral conductors to make a mark in the symphonic world. • January 2, 1962 Richard Bowie Spikes of Los Angeles, California received patent number 3,015,522 for an automatic safety brake system. His invention provided a reserve braking system for automobiles in the event of the failure of the primary braking system.

Over his 16 year professional career, Whitaker became world champion in four different weight divisions and in 1989 was named Ring Magazine Fighter of the Year. He was known for his outstanding defensive skills and in his prime was considered boxing’s top “pound for pound” fighter. Whitaker retired in 2001 with a record of 40 wins, 4 loses, 1 draw, and 1 no contest. He currently serves as a trainer for other boxers. In 2002, Ring Magazine ranked Whitaker as the 10th greatest fighter of the last 80 years and in 2006 he was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame. • January 2, 1968 Cuba M.

Riddles and Answers Riddle 1: There is an old horror house. It has no electricity,plumbing,or power of any sort. You go inside and see three doors. Each door has a number on it. In each door is a way for you to die. In door number one,you die by getting eaten by a lion. In door number two,you die by getting murdered. In door number three,you die by electric chair. You may not turn back so you have to go through a door. Which door do you go through? Answer: Go through number three. You'll survive because it's an electric chair and there is no electricity. Riddle 2: A man leaves home and takes 1 right turn and two left turns. He wants to return home, but he is scared of the man with the mask (who is at home). What is his situation? Answer: He is playing baseball! Riddle 3: One sunny sunday afternoon, the Janzeth family went for a stroll. they got tired and soon headed home. they ate lunch and went off to do their own thing. A month before this, the mother had a baby son. One child did no like this son and thought he was stealing all the attention. This child used to be the star child and everyone loved that child. one day the child decided to kill their baby brother so they could get all the attention back. Sally stated that she was playing with her dolls, Anna said she was getting the mail hoping for her magazine to come, Alex was making a paper airplane, And Jack was setting the table like his mother told him to. Soon the parents knew who did it. Who was it that killed the baby brother? Answer Anna killed her baby brother, she was a good singer and all the attention was directed towards the new baby boy, AND THE REASON IT WAS HER: mail isnt delivered on sundays. Riddle 4: Two boys named Bobby and Mark were sent by their mothers to sell 100 cookies each, worth one dollar per cookie. Bobby was told not to eat the cookies he was selling and that he should sell all the cookies. Mark was told likewise. At the end of the day, all the cookies were sold, yet neither boy had a net gain or loss in money. They had the same amount of money as when they began. What happened? Hint: The money was not stolen. Answer They had no customers at first. Each boy became hungry after a while. Bobby had a one dollar bill prior, so he decided to buy a cookie from Mark for a dollar. Mark also decided to buy a cookie from Bobby, paying him with the same dollar bill. And so it continued until all the cookies were sold, and both boys came home full and happy. Riddle 5: A pregnant singer had six children: three boys and three girls. Their names were Dominic, Reggie, Michael, Faith, Sophia, and Lauren. She was pregnant with another girl. Her husband suggested five names: Roxanne, Tiffany, Erica, Sabrina, and Rita. Which name did she pick? Answer She picked Tiffany. Being a singer, her first six children were named after Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, and La. Her seventh child would be named after Ti, so Tiffany was chosen. Riddle 6: A man approaches a bridge. On that bridge, a large man with an sword approaches him and says, "If you want to cross this bridge, you have to make a statement. I can tell if you are speaking the truth or not. If your statement is true, I will kill you by strangling you to death. If it is false, I will be obliged to use my sword and kill you by cutting off your head." A short time later, the man crossed the bridge while the large man was left pondering. What statement did the man that crossed the bridge make? Note: It must be a declarative sentence. Answer "You will kill me by cutting my head off." This creates a paradox, and leaves the large man confused. It may also be rephrased as "You will not kill me by strangling me." Another totally different answer is "Everything I say is a lie," or some other variation. Riddle 7: I see you when you're sleeping...I know exactly who you are. I know your name, address, grades in school, whether you've been naughty or nice, all of that is written down right on a list of a ton of other children just like you. I'll visit you soon, and all of the other children on my list. Answer A pedophile __________________________ Gandang gabi madla!:) Tulog nako.. Admin Drax
03JAN 2013 HAYLOR UM GOLPE PUBLICITÁRIO? RELATOS DE QUE TAYLOR SWIFT E HARRY STYLES SÃO UM CASAL FALSO Harry Styles e Taylor Swift formam um casal falso? Depois que Haylor se tornou um relacionamento, muitos fãs inicialmente pensaram que era um golpe publicitário. Até o The Enquirer está apoiando sobre os relatos de falso relacionamento, com um informante falando que Harry está, na verdade, usando Taylor. De acordo com o National Enquirer, Haylor foi ‘orquestrado por seus assessores de imprensa para colocar o pop ídolo teen ainda mais debaixo dos holofotes’. Um informante contou ao Enquirer, Mal sabe Taylor que os assessores de Harry foram longe para colocarem os dois juntos porque ela é uma estrela enorme. Toda vez que Taylor começa a namorar um novo rapaz ela recebe muita atenção da mídia, e os seus términos recebem ainda mais. O tabloide noticia que os assessores de Harry ‘viram o potencial para um relacionamento aflorar’ depois do Kids’ Choice Awards e ‘começaram a fazer tudo para aproximar os dois’. Já para o evento de um término, os assessores de Harry estão ‘só esperando que o relacionamento tome um rumo e colha os benefícios do término’. Os relatos do GossipCop.com dizem que não há nenhuma verdade para os rumores do relacionamento de Harry e Taylor ser falso, com a confirmação vinda de uma fonte do One Direction. É claro, que a confusão de que Taylor está usando Harry continua por aí, com muitas Directioners acreditando que Tay usará o relacionamento deles como inspiração para uma música.
