[video] Mexican school teacher sings to calm kids during wild shootout

This woman is definitely a hero for trying her best to keep these kids calm and safe while gunshots were flying just outside the classroom. Hit the jump for video.

A schoolgirl hugs her teacher Martha Ivette Rivera Alanis before starting clashes at school in a working class neighbourhood in Monterrey May 30, 2011. Rivera Alanis has won local acclaim for using her cell phone video camera to record the security protocol keeping a school room of children from panicking during a daylight shootout on Friday 27 in the street outside, distracting them with songs and stories, local media reported.

Teacher Martha Rivera Alanis was awarded a certificate for showing “outstanding civic courage” for her steady performance during a gunfight in the northern industrial hub of Monterrey.

As Miss Rivera Alanis proudly held up the framed certificate outside the local Governor’s office she said she was not concerned with fame – only the safety of her 5- and 6-year-old pupils.

“Of course, I was afraid, but I tell you, my kids get me through it,” she said following the private ceremony.

Miss Rivera Alanis used her cell phone to tape the video, in which she is heard coaxing her 15 pupils to lie flat on the floor.

“No, my love, nothing is going to happen, just put your little face on the floor,” she is heard telling one worried little girl.

Hacker speaks on PBS Tupac and Sony hacks

If you are wondering why hackers are loyal to Wikileaks, its because Julian Assange was a hacker himself as revealed in the documentary about him and how the organization came to be. Anyway time for corporate america and everybody else to realize that these hackers will rip your online presence to shreds if you dare say anything against Wikileaks. Here is some direct words from a hacker concerning their problems with PBS and Sony

via Forbes

“We just finished watching WikiSecrets and were less than impressed. We decided to sail our Lulz Boat over to the PBS servers for further… perusing,” read a statement that LulzSec posted to Twitter. “Anyway, say hello to the insides of the PBS servers, folks. They best watch where they’re sailing next time.”

Writer Nicholas Carr says ‘internet information overload is making us dumb’

I totally believe he has some valid points. Having seen how my younger teenage family members are literally addicted to Facebook and have no aspirations outside of that is a telling story. The fact that kids self esteem are directly related to how many people like their status or photos is something that is going to have repercussions in their adult lives.

via Breitbart

“We take in so much information so quickly that we are in a constant state of cognitive overload,” Carr argued.

“Multitasking erodes cognitive control. We lose our ability to say that this is important, this is unimportant. All we want is new information.”

In contrast, when readers open a printed book, “there’s nothing else going on except words on a page, no distractions. It helps train us to be deep thinkers.”

[pic] Is the ‘Dove VisibleCare’ Ad Racist?

Probably just a mistake, can’t see Dove being that stupid enough to alienate what is probably a large portion of their consumer base.

“I don’t understand why nothing is happening,” said Fitzpatrick, flipping through his Bible for clues to why Rapture failed to show up on time.
Fitzpatrick, 60, a retired MTA engineer who became the city’s self-appointed siren of the Apocalypse, spent $140,000 of his life savings on 3,219 bus, subway and commuter-rail ads trumpeting the coming “global earthquake” and urging sinners to repent to Jesus.

IMF chief’s wife scraps up $6 mill for his bail

This dude should have been not granted bail because he could still leave and hide for years to come. Remember he was trying to board a plane when they snatched him up. Equally for his lawyer to suggest the sex was consensual is even crazier.

via Daily Mail

The former head of the IMF was dramatically granted bail yesterday under draconian conditions as it emerged he will face a trial for his alleged sex attack on a hotel maid.

CNN anchor Don Lemon reveals he is Gay in inspirational book

Yeah ladies cross him off your wish list.

via NY Times

I’m scared,” he said in a telephone interview. “I’m talking about something that people might shun me for, ostracize me for.”

Even beyond whatever effect his revelation might have on his television career, Mr. Lemon said he recognized this step carried special risk for him as a black man.

“It’s quite different for an African-American male,” he said. “It’s about the worst thing you can be in black culture. You’re taught you have to be a man; you have to be masculine. In the black community they think you can pray the gay away.” He said he believed the negative reaction to male homosexuality had to do with the history of discrimination that still affects many black Americans, as well as the attitudes of some black women.

L.A. Times reveals Arnold ‘The Spermanator’ Schwarzenegger fathered child with housemaid

Not surprising at all he has a baby mamma. If you ever saw the documentary ‘Pumpin Iron’ from his Mr. Universe days you knew he loved the ladies. Expect Maria Shriver to take him to the cleaners.

via Huff Post

After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago,” Schwarzenegger told the Times in a statement that also was sent to The Associated Press early Tuesday. “I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry.

Serena Williams deletes sexy Twitter background after online backlash

You guys know I love me some Serena, but I do think this pic was a bit too sexy for a Twitter background. She made a mistake people get off her back and the stalker dude was bugging out way before this so to try and connect this is stupid. Check out some criticism below:

via Daily Mail

‘It’s a sexy photo, she looks great and it’s not pornographic. To be honest, I would actually find it to be somewhat artistic if it weren’t for the serious business of stalking women,’ Greg Couch of The Sporting News wrote.
‘What was her message anyway? What was she trying to say? Just this: Look at me. Instead, what she was saying was this: Peep at me, but don’t stalk me. Huh?
‘Someone must have gotten to her and suggested something about common sense and hypocrisy.’

The tennis star was forced to remove a half-naked picture of herself hours after she used it as her avatar Twitter, amid online outcry.
