Daily Mail: For 11 days, 24-year-old Wismond Exantus existed in a nightmare. Buried alive, he survived on beer, biscuits and Coke, and banged desperately on the broken walls that weighed down on him to get someone’s attention.

He did not know if anyone would ever hear. He prayed, recited psalms, and slept.

On Sunday – hours after authorities called off the search for survivors in Haiti – a journalist heard Wismond’s pleas for help.

The cast of Jersey Shore, who have been the new break out stars of this reality show TV season, are demanding big raises after monster rating for their finale broadcast earlier this week.

The show which was been heavily protested by Italian-American groups, has been the guilty pleasure of millions who can’t seem to get enough of the fist-pumping, muscle bound, hot tub shenanigans. Check out below what they have told MTV executives about how much they wanna get paid.

For Jersey Shore season two, MTV offered a bonus to each of the cast members of $10,000 as well as a payment of $5,000 per episode. That is a lot of money for these cast members, but they rejected it apparently stating that they wanted every cast member (eight main ones) to get the same raise.

More Incriminating Information released about Wyclef’s ‘Yele Haiti’ Charity from former Co-Founder

More incriminating information has been released about Wyclef’s ‘Yele Haiti’ charity and it pains me to see that the people involved were using this to pay their personal expenses.

Wyclef Jean has defended the financial irregularities of his foundation Yele Haiti by arguing he started it with his own money. However internal documents obtained by Gawker reveal that the former Fugee made no contribution during its first year. In defending his foundation at a press conference earlier this week against accusations that it has a history of mismanaging funds, Jean said, “I started the charity with my own funds.” Earlier, in a YouTube video, Jean claimed, “I myself have put $1 million inside my own foundation.”

START YOUR OWN BLOG [The Brand You Series] by Chris Knotti

Rappers have made the same mistake over and over, depending on a blog to cosign them! It’s great at first, being exposed to the masses, but there’s a problem with this microwave process!

The problem is, you may not be ready for the masses! To often I find hateful comments posted in the forums of these blog, which will turn the next person off who might have liked you had you been introduced to them organically! With Twitter, WordPress and Ning around, there is almost no excuse for an artist to not be engaging his audience! You need your own blog!

Don’t get me wrong! There’s nothing wrong with being featured on outside blogs but you should make sure they link back to your blog! Your fanbase will need a place to meet up, talk about you, get the latest info, SPREAD YOUR GOSPEL!

A great example of this is 50 Cents website, Thisis50.com! Most bloggers scour the internet looking for things to post. So posting in one central place makes more sense and saves the time of sending out annoying emails to bloggers who are not interested in getting them! Its the purest form of permission marketing there is! The bottom line is this, press can be great for an artist, but make sure you have a place to cultivate your movement, a haven for those who are your evangelist!

Building 1 fan a day takes time but it pays off. follow me @KNsocial and leave a comment, Id love to hear your thoughts on the subject!

[video] Controversial Air New Zealand ‘Cougars’ Ad Banned From TV

Young men beware!

The ad from air New Zealand, to advertise their grabaseat deals, that had to be banned from the air due to people’s complaints about the use of the term cougar. Rape Prevention Education director Kim McGregor told the NZ Herald the ad was objectionable on several levels and that some Air New Zealand staff were concerned about the promotion.

“They find it degrading and that it is encouraging potentially harmful behaviour, so my question is why is our national carrier promoting sexually predatory behaviour?”

FBI Breaks the Law: Illegally collecting telephone records

Put all your trust in the government and you will continue to be led astray.   The Washington Post reports that the FBI illegally collected more than 2,000 U.S. telephone call records between 2002 and 2006 by invoking terrorism emergencies through lies and bullying the phone companies.

Source: Washington Post

E-mails obtained by The Washington Post detail how counterterrorism officials inside FBI headquarters did not follow their own procedures that were put in place to protect civil liberties. The stream of urgent requests for phone records also overwhelmed the FBI communications analysis unit with work that ultimately was not connected to imminent threats.

A Justice Department inspector general’s report due out this month is expected to conclude that the FBI frequently violated the law with its emergency requests, bureau officials confirmed.

According To Gawker ‘Yele Haiti’ Has Not Contributed Any Money to ‘Earthquake Relief’ Yet

I am shocked that money given to ‘Yele Haiti’ has not reached the ground yet and that the first planned expenditure is for a security force. This is not the pretense that people were told when they contributed. Millions contributed thinking their donations were going to help people on the ground immediately. I don’t know who to trust in this dilemma. Read the latest in this story below:

via Gawker

We’ve said before that Yele Haiti does and has done good and important work in Haiti in the past, but that it is, in the words of a source familiar with the organization’s operations we spoke to, “Not a relief organization” and isn’t set up to respond immediately to the urgent needs on the ground. Locke indirectly confirmed that assessment during the press conference, acknowledging that despite raising somewhere on the order of $1 million per day under the pretense of providing emergency relief, Yele Haiti hasn’t spent one dollar yet on earthquake relief—though they have accepted free space on airlifts to deliver in-kind donations of supplies.
