Fitness Trainer Jillian Michaels’ Haitian-Born Adopted Daughter Lukensia in Need of Good Hair Care

BLACK HAIR CARE & JILLIAN MICHAELS HAITIAN-BORN ADOPTED DAUGHTER:  I am all for black children being adopted by whites. In fact, I admire anyone who adopts a child, particularly a black child, no matter where they live in the world, but damn, learn how to do black hair or pay someone to do it. Fitness trainer Jillian Michaels recently showed off her adopted daughter, Haitian-born Lukensia, at Christina Applegate’s Right Action for Women Charity event Saturday in Los Angeles. Jillian Michaels and her partner Heidi Rhoades need to stop toting this little girl around with her hair looking like a hot mess. This child has been through so much in her short life, the least they could do is give her proper hair care.

SHOCK: Egyptian Plumber Beats Pregnant Wife to Death for Not Voting for Mohammed Mursi

SHOCK:  An Egyptian plumber in Alexandria reportedly beat his pregnant wife to death after learning she did not vote for Muslim Brotherhood presidential candidate Mohammed Mursi (Mohamed Morsi), the Egyptian daily al-Wafd reports.

According to police reports, the initial argument between the couple who was not named escalated into violence, despite her pleas. Battered and bruised, she was reported to have died at the hospital from injuries sustained.

Domestic fights have dominated Egyptian news headlines when the bid fell on the two most feared and most controversial candidates, Mursi and former prime minister Ahmed Shafiq. Voters, along with Egyptian media personalities, heatedly defended their chosen candidates and eagerly await the result which will be announced Sunday.

There are too many unstable people in this world. The man is an animal that should be stoned for what he did to his wife. The reality is that domestic violence is nothing new to people like this plumber.

Boston Globe Probes Mitt Romney’s Business Dealings with “Junk Bond King” Michael Milken

The Boston Globe is looking into Mitt Romney’s business dealings with “junk bond king” Michael Milken, who almost brought down Wall Street years ago.

“What transpired would become not just one of the most profitable leveraged buyouts of the era, but also one of the most revealing stories of Romney’s Bain Capital career. It showed how he pivoted from being a relatively cautious investor to risking his reputation for a big payoff. It is one that Romney has rarely, if ever, mentioned in his two bids for the presidency, perhaps because the Houston-based department store chain that Bain assembled later went into bankruptcy.”

“But what distinguishes this deal from the nearly 100 others that Romney did over a 15-year period was his close work with Milken’s firm, Drexel Burnham Lambert Inc. At the time of the deal, it was widely known that Milken and his company were under federal investigation, yet Romney decided to go ahead with the deal because Drexel had a unique ability to sell high-risk, high-yield debt instruments, known as ‘junk bonds.'”

Of course, the right doesn’t want anyone to look into Mitt Romney’s business background, which he claims makes him more than qualified for the presidency. They would rather trash Obama every step of the way, down to what he ate as a child.

13 Year Old Tyquan Tyler Among 2 Dead, 13 Wounded Overnight as Gun Violence Continues in Chicago (Chicago Tribune)

VIOLENT WEEKEND IN CHICAGO:  Tyquan Tyler, 13,  was one of two people killed, in weekend violence in Chicago. Thirteen others were wounded in shootings around the Windy City overnight, from Montrose Avenue south to 97th Street, the Chicago Tribune reports. Tyquan Tyler was at a party with his 19 year old sister, on South Rhodes Avenue, when a fight broke out about 1:20 a.m. police said.

Two other boys, 14 and 15, were shot and wounded while playing basketball on the South Side and a man was shot after a funeral party, also on the South Side, police said. The spree of shootings followed a violent night Friday through Saturday morning when a 14-year-old boy was killed and 13 other people were wounded.

On Saturday, Chicago police said they collected more than 5,500 weapons — ranging from assault weapons to BB guns and replicas — during an annual gun buy-back program. So many guns were turned in, police say they ran out of gift cards to hand out. Source

The newspaper reports that two people ran from the fight but someone pulled a gun and fired, hitting Tyquan Tyler. He was pronounced dead at 3 a.m. Why was a 13 year old child at a party at that time of the morning?

Veteran rapper/actor LL Cool J is on a mission to revolutionize music through the latest virtual studio software, My Connect Studio. The programs allows artists to experience a studio session in real time via the Internet, even if artists collaborating are in two different locations. As it stands right now, artists are emailing tracks to one another, not working on the simultaneously on the same project.

“They’ll [producers] e-mail me the track,” he said. “I’m e-mailing vocals. They don’t like something, I’m sending it back. We’re going back and forth and doing this dance. A lot of music is being created that way right now. What I wanted to do is be able to create music in real-time.” Source:  Coed

LL Cool J demonstrated the product for a full room at the Sony store in New York City last Wednesday, June 20. His friend played a track across town as he recorded the lyrics over the beat.

Ex-pastor Charles Gilford, who once led the Bethel Institutional Missionary Baptist Church in Houston, TX, and his wife, Adriane Gilford, are facing charges after stealing nearly $500,000 from their church, with most of it allegedly spent on gambling. Um, doesn’t the Bible speak clearly about gambling? SMH. Charles Gilford was charged with aggregate theft and misapplication of fiduciary property, KHOU reported.

According to KHOU, prosecutors said that between 2004 and 2007, the couple stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from the church and used it to fund trips to the Coushatta Casino in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The couple left the church in 2007. This isn’t Adriane Gilford’s first brush with the law. She was charged with check fraud in 2010.
