Where are these facilities today?  Places for young people to go to instead of the street corners.  A recreational center should be opened in urban areas to help get young people off the streets and to help fine-tune their talents and skills and reduce their tendencies towards violence….

There used to be several facilities throughout urban areas that kept our young people off the street corners. It was a place they could go to and get involved in something more positive and productive other than what we see from them today. It was a place they could go to and socialize peacefully. It kept them from the crossfire of the many gang shootings, the “in your face” drug sales and the temptations of wanting to be a part of such “traps” like these. It gave them something better to do with their time.  Recreational centers  kept them from the crazy and senseless SH$% they are now doing.

I say we put these facilities back in urban areas and restore some, if not all, of the unity, the peace, and the harmony that once flowed through these neighborhoods; because what we are seeing today and where it looks to be headed, is ridiculous..

That Brown Moment.

Wedgies and letting a wet one go. Have you ever had that akward moment when you thought that you just had to fart and it turned out to be a wet one? Luckily you were in the house when it happened. or were you? Can you imagine that happening to you while you were out in public or maybe at work? please comment and gives us a time and place when you had one of these akward moments

oops

that akward moments

, if this has ever happened to you.

After last night’s lost to Marquez I think we all know without a shadow of a doubt who the best is. Mayweather don’t even play with Marquez; unlike Pac Man, who has had trouble with this guy every single fight culminating in a knock out to make it unquestionable.Pac Man vs. Marquez

You’ve double-parked your car to pick something up when a robot rolls up and threatens to give you a ticket. You might laugh, but the thing’s talking with a human voice.
Researchers at Florida International University’s Discovery Lab are working with a member of the U.S. Navy Reserves to build telepresence robots that could patrol while being controlled by disabled police officers and military vets. In a sense, they would be hybrid man-machine cops, like RoboCop.
Lieutenant Commander Jeremy Robins has given $20,000 to the lab and borrowed two robots valued at nearly $500,000 from the Florida Institute for Human & Machine Cognition (IHMC) to realize his vision of bringing some of the thousands of disabled cops and soldiers in the U.S. back to the workforce.
They would work as patrol officers, operating wheeled telepresence robots and doing everything from responding to 911 calls and writing parking tickets to ensuring the security of nuclear facilities. The cybercops would have to be rugged enough to work outdoors, but what would they look like?
“The big design hurdle we face is, strangely enough, the exact same hurdle police officers face with the public every day,” Robins says.

“The telebot has to look intimidating and authoritative enough so that people obey its commands — because of course it’s not the telebot telling you what to do, it’s the disabled police officer controlling the telebot who’s telling you what to do.
“On the flip side, it has to be approachable enough so that a lost 3-year-old feels comfortable coming up to the telebot and asking for help finding her mother. That’s a challenging design problem, and one which I’m sure will take many iterations before we get it perfectly right.”

Students and professors at the Discovery Lab have been working with the two-wheeled, military-grade IHMC robots built under a $2 million DARPA initiative. The patrol bot prototype, which will have two-way video and audio, will be based on them. Robins is also trying to get NASA to help out with its Robonaut tech.
Remote-controlled robots are already used in military, medical, and business applications, and the lab believes law enforcement is a natural next step. The legal implications related to police behavior, however, would likely be a major hurdle to deployment. For instance, would roving robots be seen as glorified security cams on wheels, or more like substitutes for human officers?
I’ll bet the patrol bots get deluged with one-liner requests: “Dead or alive, you’re coming with me.”

round 4

kaspakapaz sports pac man and marquez

While eight-division champ Manny Pacquiao waited for promoters to pump up his fourth fight with Juan Manuel Marquez on Monday, “Pac-Man” wrote “I need a knockout” on a piece of paper, according to trainer Freddie Roach (per ESPN.com), showing that his motivation is back.

Not leaving everything to writing on a piece of paper, Pacquiao spoke of his desire to beat Marquez in a clear-cut fashion on December 8 to ESPN.com:

I want to erase the doubt of the last three fights. There’s so many people still asking if I won the fights. I think to myself, ‘Something is wrong. I have to do it again.’ This time, I will train hard to put this fight up in the history of boxing. I want to make this fight short. I want to knock him out.

Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KOs) is not usually one to call someone out, but his determination to beat Marquez (54-6-1, 39 KOs) by KO shows he must have re-evaluated his less-than-stellar showings in the ring the past few fights.

Most boxing fans were disappointed when the fourth bout between Pacquiao and Marquez was announced, but the increased motivation being shown by Pacquiao should create some added excitement for the bout.

Pacquiao went on to tell ESPN.com, “I want to be the other Manny Pacquiao, like when I was 24, 25 years old. I want people who watch this fight to be satisfied. I don’t care about a belt. I don’t care about the money. I want the win.”

With Pacquiao’s career nearing the end, getting a glimpse of the “old” Pacquiao would be a nice change from the seemingly distracted and unmotivated fighter we have seen the past few times he has fought.

 Patriots-Tita…

 

Patriots-Titans Preview

Although Tom Brady and the New England Patriots had one of the NFL’s most dangerous offenses last year, expectations are even greater this season with the addition of deep threat Brandon Lloyd.

 

The Tennessee Titans‘ offense figures to be far less dynamic with Jake Locker starting his first game at quarterback, but their defense is showing signs it’s capable of slowing down the defending AFC champions.

 

Brady looks to lead the high-powered Patriots to their ninth straight season-opening victory Sunday when they visit a Titans team brimming with confidence after an encouraging preseason.

 

New England, which won its eighth AFC East title in nine years last season with a 13-3 record, is set to play its first meaningful game since falling to the New York Giants 21-17 on a last-minute touchdown in February’s Super Bowl. The loss obviously stung at the time, but the team has moved on.

 

“I honestly don’t think about last year much,” Brady said. “This is a whole different team and we’re in a different situation. You have to go out here and establish what this team’s going to be all about.”

 

This year’s team will once more revolve around Brady and the offense.

 

A year ago, the Patriots finished third in the league in scoring at 32.1 points per game, with Brady throwing for 5,235 yards — second-most in NFL history — and 39 touchdowns.

 

Wes Welker led the league with 122 receptions for 1,569 yards, and Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez created the NFL’s best tight end tandem, combining for 169 catches, 2,237 yards and 24 touchdowns.

 

New to the mix is Lloyd, who had a league-best 1,448 receiving yards in 2010 for Denver. He has been reunited with former Broncos coach Josh McDaniels, who was the offensive coordinator with the Patriots from 2006-08.

 

“We are developing as an offense and we’re trying to integrate as much of the running game and pass catchers as possible,” said Lloyd, who had 966 receiving yards last season with Denver and St. Louis.

 

With BenJarvus Green-Ellis now in Cincinnati, second-year backs Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen will play bigger roles in the running game.

 

“We have plenty of players that can make a contribution on offense,” McDaniels said. “Hopefully, every skill player that plays in the game has an opportunity to make some plays for us, whether that be in the backfield or tight end or at the receivers position.

 

New England’s offense didn’t show much in the preseason, scoring six touchdowns. Lloyd caught one pass and Welker had none, but this matters little to an established franchise like the Patriots.

 

“You have confidence that you can do it when it matters,” Brady said.

 

The Titans, meanwhile, had an impressive preseason and are hoping to bridge that success into the regular season.

 

Tennessee, which went 9-7 last year but missed a wild-card playoff berth on a tiebreaker, gave up the fewest points in the AFC in the preseason (16.8 per game) and led the league with eight interceptions after managing 13 a year ago. They also finished the preseason with 13 sacks compared to 28 last season, second-fewest in the NFL.

 

“You get a confidence going,” second-year coach Mike Munchak said of the preseason. “You start getting a confidence going in each other. To me, when you’re playing a game it doesn’t matter. It’s all about playing your best. I think our guys approached it that way in the preseason that we needed to establish an identity a little bit more that we can go and make those kind of plays.”

 

Munchak is turning the offense over to Locker, believing he gives the team its best chance to win the AFC South.

 

Locker, the eighth pick of the 2011 draft, threw for 542 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions coming off the bench in five games as a rookie. He beat out Matt Hasselbeck, who started all 16 games last year.

 

“By no means has this job been given to him,” Munchak said. “He’s earned it.”

 

Locker’s job will be much easier if Chris Johnson can rebound from the worst season of his career.

 

Johnson ran for a career-low 1,047 yards in 2011 after missing almost all preseason in a holdout before signing an extension. He insists reaching 2,000 yards for the second time is a goal.

 

“I’m ready to get ready for New England,” Johnson said.

 

The Patriots were 31st in total defense last year at 411.1 yards per game, but 15th in scoring at 21.4 points allowed. They’ve lost endsAndre Carter and Mark Anderson, who accounted for half of the team’s 40 sacks, but expect first-round picks Chandler Jones and Dont’a Hightower to contribute immediately.

 

While Munchak feels good about the way his defense is playing, the unit has been overwhelmed by Brady and company in the past.

 

In their last meeting in 2009, Brady passed for 380 yards and matched a career best with six touchdowns in a 59-0 victory. The Patriots have averaged 45.7 points in winning the last three matchups since a 24-7 loss in 2002.

 

The Patriots haven’t lost in Week 1 since 2003, and their eight-game winning streak in openers is tied for the fifth-longest streak in NFL history.

 

In last season’s opener, Brady threw for a team-record 517 yards in a 38-24 win over Miami.

The world’s first genetically modified humans have been created, it was revealed last night. The disclosure that 30 healthy babies were born after a series of experiments in the United States provoked another furious debate about ethics. So far, two of the babies have been tested and have been found to contain genes from three ‘parents’. Fifteen of the children were born in the past three years as a result of one experimental programme at the Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Science of St Barnabas in New Jersey. The babies were born to women who had problems conceiving. Extra genes from a female donor were inserted into their eggs before they were fertilised in an attempt to enable them to conceive. Genetic fingerprint tests on two one-year- old children confirm that they have inherited DNA from three adults –two women and one man. The fact that the children have inherited the extra genes and incorporated them into their ‘germline’ means that they will, in turn, be able to pass them on to their own offspring. Altering the human germline – in effect tinkering with the very make-up of our species – is a technique shunned by the vast majority of the world’s scientists. Geneticists fear that one day this method could be used to create new races of humans with extra, desired characteristics such as strength or high intelligence. Writing in the journal Human Reproduction, the researchers, led by fertility pioneer Professor Jacques Cohen, say that this ‘is the first case of human germline genetic modification resulting in normal healthy children’. Some experts severely criticised the experiments. Lord Winston, of the Hammersmith Hospital in West London, told the BBC yesterday: ‘Regarding the treat-ment of the infertile, there is no evidence that this technique is worth doing . . . I am very surprised that it was even carried out at this stage. It would certainly not be allowed in Britain.’ John Smeaton, national director of the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children, said: ‘One has tremendous sympathy for couples who suffer infertility problems. But this seems to be a further illustration of the fact that the whole process of in vitro fertilisation as a means of conceiving babies leads to babies being regarded as objects on a production line. ‘It is a further and very worrying step down the wrong road for humanity.’ Professor Cohen and his colleagues diagnosed that the women were infertile because they had defects in tiny structures in their egg cells, called mitochondria. They took eggs from donors and, using a fine needle, sucked some of the internal material – containing ‘healthy’ mitochondria – and injected it into eggs from the women wanting to conceive. Because mitochondria contain genes, the babies resulting from the treatment have inherited DNA from both women. These genes can now be passed down the germline along the maternal line. A spokesman for the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA), which regulates ‘assisted reproduction’ technology in Britain, said that it would not license the technique here because it involved altering the germline. Jacques Cohen is regarded as a brilliant but controversial scientist who has pushed the boundaries of assisted reproduction technologies. He developed a technique which allows infertile men to have their own children, by injecting sperm DNA straight into the egg in the lab. Prior to this, only infertile women were able to conceive using IVF. Last year, Professor Cohen said that his expertise would allow him to clone children –a prospect treated with horror by the mainstream scientific community. ‘It would be an afternoon’s work for one of my students,’ he said, adding that he had been approached by ‘at least three’ individuals wishing to create a cloned child, but had turned down their requests. originally posted by MICHAEL HANLON, Daily Mail

Griselda Blanco was believed to have ordered dozens of vicious drug-related slayings in the 1970s and 80s, and was convicted of the murder of a 2-year-old in Miami.

Griselda Blanco, the drug kingpin known for her blood-soaked style of street vengeance during Miami’s “cocaine cowboys” era of the ’70s and ’80s, was shot to death in Medellin by a motorcycle-riding assassin Monday.

Blanco, 69, spent nearly two decades behind bars in the United States for drug trafficking and three murders, including the 1982 slaying of a 2-year-old boy in Miami.

Called the “Godmother of Cocaine,” she was deported in 2004 to Colombia, where she maintained a low profile.

Colombia’s national police confirmed her slaying late Monday. According to Colombian press reports, two gunmen on motorcycles pulled up to Blanco as she walked out of a butcher shop in Medellin, her hometown. One man pumped two bullets into her head, according to El Colombiano newspaper. It was the sort of death many had predicted for her: Blanco has been credited with inventing the idea of the “motorcycle assassin” who rode by victims and sprayed them with bullets.

“It’s surprising to all of us that she had not been killed sooner because she made a lot of enemies,” former Miami homicide detective Nelson Andreu, who investigated her, said late Monday. “When you kill so many and hurt so many people like she did, it’s only a matter of time before they find you and try to even the score.”

The former kingpin was with a pregnant daughter-in-law, who was uninjured. According to El Colombiano, the woman told police that Blanco was no longer involved in organized crime and that she was hoping to live off the sales of several properties she owned.

Blanco came to epitomize the “cocaine cowboy” bloodshed of the 1980s, when rival drug dealers brazenly ambushed rivals in public.

Raised in the slums of Medellin, she began her criminal career as a pickpocket, eventually commanding an empire that reportedly shipped 3,400 pounds of cocaine per month, by boat and plane. She was considered a Colombian pioneer in drug smuggling to the United States, a precursor to the larger cartels that dominated in the 1980s. She even had a Medellin lingerie shop custom design bras and girdles with special pockets to hold cocaine, a tool used by her drug mules flying to Miami.

She ran the organization with her three of her four sons, two of whom were later assassinated in Colombia.

Blanco was known for her flamboyant lifestyle — one of her sons was named Michael Corleone, an homage to The Godfather movies. Three of her husbands also died in drug-related violence.

But it was her nasty temper and penchant for unyielding violence that drew the attention of law enforcement and the public.

Investigators linked her to the daytime 1979 submachine gun attack at Dadeland Mall that shocked Miami. Detectives conservatively estimated that she was behind about 40 homicides.

She was only convicted of three murders.

Two of them: Blanco arranged the slayings drug dealers Alfredo and Grizel Lorenzo in their South Miami house, as their three children watched television in another room. They had failed to pay $250,000 for five kilos of cocaine that Blanco had allegedly delivered to them.

She was also convicted of ordering a shooting that resulted in the death of 2-year-old Johnny Castro, shot twice in the head as he drove in a car with his father, Jesus “Chucho” Castro. Blanco was targeting Jesus Castro, a former enforcer for Blanco’s organization.

Detectives learned the intimate details of the hit from Jorge Ayala, the charismatic hitman who later testified against Blanco. He told police that Blanco wanted Castro killed because he kicked her son in the buttocks.

“At first she was real mad ’cause we missed the father,” Ayala told police. “But when she heard we had gotten the son by accident, she said she was glad, that they were even.”

She had been arrested in 1985 in a cocaine trafficking case in New York. Ultimately, she served 13 years in federal custody before she was handed over to Florida authorities.

Blanco seemed destined for Florida’s Death Row — but the prosecution’s murders case was dealt a severe blow.

The reason: Ayala — the case’s chief witness — engaged in phone sex with secretaries from the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office. After an investigation, three secretaries were fired and a veteran prosecutor resigned.

Special prosecutors from Orlando took over the case, and Blanco cut a plea deal in 1998.

Blanco was sentenced to three concurrent 20-year sentences, of which she had to serve only about one-third because of guidelines in effect at the time of the murders. Even on her return to Colombia, she was believed to have held onto immense wealth.

In recent years, younger Miamians were introduced to Blanco via two “Cocaine Cowboys” documentaries made by filmmakers Billy Corben and Alfred Spellman.

“This is classic live-by-the-sword, die-by-the-sword,” Corben said Monday. “Or in this case, live-by-the-motorcycle-assassin, die-by-the-motorcycle assassin.”
