Celebrity cellphone hacking has become the act of legends – not that you would remember any of the tech culprits without Google’s help – lending fans worldwide a peep into the truly personal lives of the rich and famous. Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively, Jamie Foxx, Josh Hutcherson and countless others have been the “victims” of hacking of personal material and “leaks.”
Well here now you have a prime example of where celebrity culture and everyday life collide – school hallways, classrooms and their grappling defense of wayward acts.
Carmichael, California school district has cleared Neal Edwards, a teacher at Casa Roble H.S. – Home of The RAMS – of “accidentally” showing porn during a classroom projection presentation, after the winter recess, and the parent(s) are none too thrilled, reports state.

The issue of fast food workers and minimum wage salaries is a hot topic – of late. Industry workers have been protesting around the country and calling for a raise in their meager medium $8.25 an hour earnings for a hot minute. Their general demands – cuz it’s not just that Oompa Loompa Boehner that has demands – is for politicos and businesses to raise this meager number up to $15 an hour. Some say this is absurd and so, like the present government shutdown, protests and injustices continue.
Enter McDonald’s cashier Nancy Salgado into the picture.
Salgado, a single mother of two, chose to put her mouth where her money isn’t and, accompanied by six others, decided that interrupting the chain’s CEO Jeff Stratton, while speaking at a local “public” venue, was a sure fire direct method approach to voicing her objections to working ten years in a position as a cashier and never getting a raise.
That sure as hell don’t seem right! But evidently it’s quite true. Read the rest of this entry »
Here is a classic case of no good deed going unpunished. 19-year-old Andrew Anderson took Goodwill’s mission statement to heart while working at one of the organizations retail stores in Naples. So much so that the teen incorporated his own extension of goodwill to the retail stores customers. A big NO, NO – evidently. The management discovered his generous approach to his working ethics and not only fired the wanna-be do-good’er but had his ass arrested on Grand Theft charges, reports states. OUCH!
French authorities put on display the 1.3 tons of cocaine discovered on an inbound flight to Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport from Venezuela, earlier this month, packed in 30 suitcases.

What you are looking at in the above handout photo is pure untouched snow! As in the kind you must take to chipping off and grinding prior to inhaling like a hoover – or so we are told. Read the rest of this entry »
Strange but true stories always get our attention. Case and point: Rhode Island bear John Matson Jr., 46, being mauled by an Alaskan brown bear! We stumbled upon this story and we had to stop and go looking further into the story.
Reports have Matson, the thick son of a New England politico, accompanied by a companion hunter and a tour guide, in Alaska, injuring a bear that was minding its own business eating some berries – you know winter is imminent – and then waiting some 90-minutes, presumably for it to lay down and let go, to follow the injured majestic creature into a thicket of shrubs only to find that said brown bear held some resentment at not only being injured while minding its own business but now being pursued while licking its wounds and mauled Matson’s fat ass.

There is something deeply hurtful going on in Russia present day. Their anti-gay propaganda laws are, by far, the most extreme homophobia being exercised by a supposed developed country.
And for those who believe that it only affects the locals – which in and of itself is an atrocity – it doesn’t. It applies to foreigners as well.
Doubt this? Google the recent arrest of Dutch tourist/protesters.
And with the 2014 Olympics slated to take place in – wait for it – Russia, we are left with mouth gaping open that anyone – Olympian, coach or sponsors – would commit their support to an ass-backward country fueling such hateful practices.
Well lo and behold, their is a petition presently making the rounds looking to ban Elena Mizulina and Vitaly Milonov from acquiring visas required to enter the USA. And as we have already put down our John Hancock, we thought to share the petition with y’all in the hopes of helping the petition reach its 100k required number to go before John Kerry.
Help send a message to these two spiteful individual, as well as Putin himself, that says ‘it’s not OK to exercise such blatant homophobia!’
Mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner can’t catch a break these days. He threw himself into the political trenches thinking that his sex-ting scandal – which caused his
Senate House of Representatives seat resignation – was a thing of the past and that redemption was at hand with his dream of becoming the next NYC Mayor fast on the horizon, but NO! Lo-and-behold some mid-west skank surfaces with copies of their inappropriate texting and pic exchange, all in a bid to snatch her fifteen minutes of ‘I’ve been victimized’ headlines, and screws up his lead in the preliminary poles.
