WTF? Stephon Marbury Cries on Webcam

This guy still has some serious issues with the death of his father. I don’t think this should have been released to the public. Grieving should be done out of the public eye because people are brutal on the internet. I hope he gets his self together and leave the web cams alone.

By now most of you must have heard about Shaquille O’Neal’s new reality TV show he is filming over the summer break. If you haven’t heard about it, it will be called “Shaq Vs.”

Each week in ‘Shaq Vs’ the big fella will be challenging stars of other professional sports to a one on one match, against himself, in their particular sport of excellence. O’Neal figures the differing sport training will provide him with the type of versatility and stimulation he needs to train over the summer and stay in shape.

The first “Shaq Vs.” episode was shot this week and for the premiere episode Shaq challenged NFL QB Ben Roethlisberger in some sort of football match. While there are no spoilers being leaked for you yet on who won the game, word is Shaq is calling himself “The Big Field General” throughout the episode and we have the following picture for you from filming, enjoy folks:

AP: Stressed out soldiers say they killed innocent people in Iraq

This is a very serious story about the realities of war in Iraq and Afghanistan. These young men are turned into killing machines and are expected to come back home and adjust to normal life.

This report highlights that many soldiers are having a difficult time doing this and the evidence shows that the are suffering post traumatic stress from long engagements. Our so-called political leaders need to stop all the cat and mouse politics and begin to address the needs of these young men and women.

 "Toward the end, we were so mad and tired and frustrated," said Daniel Freeman. "You came too close, we lit you up. You didn't stop, we ran your car over with the Bradley," an armored fighting vehicle. AP

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – Soldiers from an Army unit that had 10 infantrymen accused of murder, attempted murder or manslaughter after returning to civilian life described a breakdown in discipline during their Iraq deployment in which troops murdered civilians, a newspaper reported Sunday.

Some Fort Carson, Colo.-based soldiers have had trouble adjusting to life back in the United States, saying they refused to seek help, or were belittled or punished for seeking help. Others say they were ignored by their commanders, or coped through drug and alcohol abuse before they allegedly committed crimes, The Gazette of Colorado Springs said.

Geraldo Rivera: Did ESPN’s Erin Andrews Leak Peephole Video?

Source: Breitbart

First off I am not a fan of Geraldo or Bo Dietl.

Secondly,I do believe there is something really fishy about this story. How could somebody score footage twice in a hotel of her naked and not get caught? Trust me her managers are negotiating with Playboy as we speak and if she does it she will say she did the spread to take back control of her career. Yeah just google it and you can see what all the fuss is about.

Teen strippers legal in Rhode Island

12 News reports “PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – In a state where indoor prostitution is still legal, it turns out teen strippers, 16- and 17 year-olds are taking off their clothes for money. In Rhode Island, minors can legally dance at gentlemen’s clubs. But now, there is a push to close that loophole.”

NY POST Exclusive: Chris Brown spotted in same NYC hotel as Rihanna

This story is getting very tired and I think Chris should use better judgement and stay as far away as humanely possible from Rihanna if he wants to have a career again.

Just days after Chris Brown publicly apologized for his February beating of then-girlfriend Rihanna, the two spent the weekend at the same luxury Midtown hotel under a cloak of secrecy, The Post has learned.

The pretty “Umbrella” singer and “Run It” crooner — who is barred from seeing his former squeeze by a restraining order issued in Los Angeles — checked into separate rooms at the Trump International Hotel & Tower on Friday, hotel sources said.

They spent the next two days coming and going in separate chauffeured vehicles from the underground garage of the 52-story Columbus Circle building.

Palestinian terrorists al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades target Bruno?

I am not co-signing that theses guys are terrorists. All I know that Mr. Cohen has some serious beef on his hands.

ABU BOO-BOO: Sacha Baron Cohen, wielding a Chanel "weapon" at the "Bruno" premiere, stepped up real-life security after an interview in the film with Palestinian militant Ayman Abu Aita (above) sent his group into a rage.

ABU BOO-BOO: Sacha Baron Cohen, wielding a Chanel "weapon" at the "Bruno" premiere, stepped up real-life security after an interview in the film with Palestinian militant Ayman Abu Aita (above) sent his group into a rage.

Sacha Baron Cohen has stepped up his security after being threatened by a terrorist organization that is angered at its portrayal in the film “Bruno.”

The al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, a coalition of Palestinian militias in the West Bank, said it was “very upset” that it was featured in the movie, starring Baron Cohen’s homosexual fashionista alter ego.

Baron Cohen’s Austrian character ridicules the terrorist group when he attempts to get himself kidnapped during a meeting with Ayman Abu Aita, who is identified in the film as the leader of the Martyrs’ Brigades.

The British comic is taking the threat seriously and has improved secu rity arrangements for himself and his family in preparation for violent reprisals.

The Martyrs’ Bri gades has issued a statement to a Jerusalem-based journalist including a veiled threat against Baron Cohen, 37.

“We reserve the right to respond in the way we find suitable against this man,” it said. “The movie was part of a conspiracy against the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades.”

The group condemned the use of the interview.

“According to what we checked, there was no meeting about the real context of the film,” the statement said. “This was a dirty use of our brother, Ayman, and we don’t accept that the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades is part of the film.”

The group is responsible for dozens of suicide bombings and shootings, and has been designated as a terrorist organization by the United States.

Twitter debuts new homepage next week

Picture 58

Twitter will unveil a new main homepage next week at Twitter.com, said co-founder Biz Stone, in order “to better show who we are.”

In an interview with BoomTown this afternoon, Stone said the current page is essentially confusing to the masses of people who come to it, made aware of the microblogging service by the massive media hype it has received over the last year.

Said Stone: “We want it to show us as a place where people can discover what is going on in real-time and much more.”

People arriving at the new main homepage will be greeted by a search box, information on Twitter trends and a panoply of more specific information about how they can use Twitter.

“You can try it out without having to sign up, so you can get an idea of what Twitter is before you use it,” said Stone. “We need to do a better job of explaining ourselves to people who hear about us and then have no idea what do to.”

Stone is right.

As you can see below (click on the image to make it larger), the current main homepage is pretty lame now, with a picture of a bird on a branch, some cursory explanatory what-why-how information, a link to a video and some media kudos, as well as an ability to sign on.

Facebook allows you to change your username

via Read Write Web
Picture 56

Last month, Facebook finally announced that they would allow users to pick out custom usernames for use in vanity URLs that read http://www.facebook.com/username. At the time, users were advised to “choose wisely” because the username they selected would be stuck with them for life. That didn’t stop some Facebook users from picking out names that were clearly meant as jokes, // though, including the guy who decided to go with “rickroll” and the other fellow who just kept pressing the letter “a.” We’re not sure if those folks are now having regrets about their choices, but if so, they’ll be happy to know they now have the option to select a username yet again. But only once, says Facebook.

It appears that Facebook has quietly launched a new option in the settings area called “username” where you have the option to change your Facebook username. To find this option, go to “Settings” at the top-right of the Facebook page and then click on “Account Settings.” The second option from the top is “Username.” Press “Change” to enter in your new username and then click “Confirm” when you’re ready to set it.

More drama for the defunct magazine and they will definitely have to pony up the money and refund the now worthless subscriptions.

When Vibe went belly-up, the publishers of the urban beat magazine didn’t lift a finger to refund subscribers who were left high and dry by its sudden demise, according to a federal class-action lawsuit filed in New York.

The civil complaint, on behalf of Enterprise, Ala., resident Kenneth Rogers, claims he purchased a year-long subscription to Vibe three months before the magazine’s collapse on June 30. Rogers claims Vibe hasn’t done a thing to refund his money. His lawsuit invites any of the mag’s 800,000 subscribers to join.

A one-year subscription cost between $9.95 and $14.95, and readers had to pay up front, according to the suit.

[video] Obama says police acted ‘stupidly’ in Professor Gates arrest

I am so glad he took a stance on the issue because a lot of prominent Black politicians have folded when faced with questions of Police Brutality.

Vodpod videos no longer available.


Full Transcript of his answer:

Well, I should say at the outset that Skip Gates is a friend, so I may be a little bias ed here. I don’t know all the facts. What’s been reported, though, is that the guy forgot his keys. He jimmied his way to get into the house. There was a report called into the police station that there might be a burglary taking place. so far so good. Right? I mean, if I was trying to jigger in — well, I guess this is my house now so it probably wouldn’t happen. Let’s say my old house in Chicago. here I’d get shot. But so far so good. They’re reporting, the police are doing what they should. There’s a call. They go investigate what happens. My understanding is at that point Professor Gates is already in his house. The police officer comes in. I’m sure there’s some exchange of words but my understanding is that Professor Gates then shows his I.D. to show that this is his house. And at that point he gets arrested for disorderly conduct, charges which are later dropped. Now, I don’t know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts what role race played in that, but I think it’s fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry. Number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home and, number three, what I think we know separate and apart from this incident is that there is a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately. And that’s just a fact.
