*He’s being hailed as a medical miracle! A baby boy was being born while still inside his amniotic sac.
A preemie three months ahead of his time delivered by cesarean section, little Silas Philips made his dramatic debut at Cedars Sinai Medical center in California, and attending doctors were shocked to see the baby boy’s amniotic sac still intact.
In pictures, taken in the delivery room, the infant is seen curled up inside with the placenta and umbilical cord, his tiny hands and a leg clearly visible.
Remarkably until the bag was broken, baby Silas was still getting his oxygen through the placenta.Continue reading →
*You’ve got to admit, when a company says they want to introduce music made by the booty—for the booty, you get a visual that immediately tells you that’s probably too much information.
But that’s what the team at AIAIAI headphones is selling in their latest project where sensors are attached to the booty of a woman as she goes twerk-crazy.
Just when you thought Miley had ruined twerking for everyone, the folks at AIAIAI headphones raise the bar for rump awareness with their latest project, “Real Booty Music.”Music producer Branko (from Buraka Som Sistema) attached sensors to Twerk Queen Louise‘s derrière and harnessed the movement of—well, butt cheeks—to create new music.
It really is something to behold.
According to the company, “The overall idea behind the project was to provide AIAIAI headphone users and other music lovers with new music. Moreover, we wanted to do this in an unusual way, which brought about music made by the booty—for the booty. The project explores the rich heritage of bass-driven club culture, where dancing and booty shaking are integral elements. We want to see if it’s possible to change the perception of twerking through placing it in a technology-driven, creative context and letting the dance ‘do the talking.’ ”

“God gave it to me. Why not love it and use it.” This is a direct quote from one of the women featured in the video you will see in this article. The woman is not talking about a squeaky voice or the lack of a body limb, she’s talking about the 8-Feet of fat that is the circumference of her hips. Fat which, at least to me, doesn’t look like anything God gave her.
It looks more like something she helped herself to.
Four women are featured in this video that is trying very hard to make you buy into the thought that excessively large hips is sexy.
I don’t know, maybe they just picked the wrong four. I’m still not convinced.Continue reading →
*It appears the right-wing conservatives are at it again. This time messing with Erica Garner, whose father died in a choke-hold at the hands of a New York City police officer who was never charged. Garner says comments she made about Rev. Al Sharpton in a video released by conservative activist James O’Keefe‘s Project Veritas were “taken out of context, edited and released to partisan outlets for nefarious reasons.” The video was published by the New York Posttoday, with a story titled, “Garner’s Kid On Sharpton: He’s all About The Money.”
Erica Garner released an exclusive statement to NewsOne, where she states the Post article “used them [her comments] to sow discord and confusion among a peaceful and unified movement.” Continue reading →
*U.S. officials say we should be vigilant since terror group Al-Shabaab put out a video on Saturday that threatens attacks on U.S. shopping malls, and in Canada and the U.K., according to CNN.
In the video the al Qaeda-linked terror group brags about its deadly September 2013 attack on a mall in Kenya, the report says, where more than 60 people died at an upscale mall in Nairob. CNN says the video is a threat to malls in the three Western countries.Continue reading →
*Ever think about the fact that some of the people who want to be your friend on Facebook, might actually be Feds in reality? If you want to let out an ‘Ahh Sh*t!’ (think Martin Lawrence) nobody will judge you at this point. After all, you’re only saying what everybody else is thinking.
If you’re among the friendly social network users and you say, “Oh sure, he’s also friends with so-and-so, so how bad can he be?” you’re not alone.
That’s what many of us do.
But the owner of several large pages on Facebook who says he is also affiliated with some ‘right-wing anti Obama pages’ warns it is not a good idea and says don’t accept friend requests from folks you don’t know. Continue reading →
*In an interview with CBSN reporter Vladimir Duthiers, Ilyasah Shabazz, the third of Malcolm X’s six daughters, talks about her father, his legacy, and how his voice (and message) still resonates today. Saturday marked the 50 year anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X, and for those of us who were actually around to witness the day it happened, its hard to believe it has been that long. It still feels so recent. The civil rights leader was gunned down while giving a speech in New York City, and many (still unsubstantiated) theories point to members of his own religious circle, the Nation of Islam, from whom he had a very public split – as the finger on the trigger.
Shabazz speaks with a loving respect and adoration of her father and says many times, when he was shown in the media he was “reacting” or responding to issues around the human condition. She called her father “a man of great compassion, of integrity, a man who was being responsible for not only his people but his country.” Continue reading →
