$20 to pet a tiger-what a bargain! That’s exactly what was happening at the Florida State Fair, thanks to Jungle Habitat’s booth. A lethargic 4-month old tiger cub named Takara was lifted out of the cage, and positioned to take photos with people. The booth was located in the middle of the fair, where she endured non-stop music and noise from crowds. One eyewitness shared “I witnessed this myself and I was disgusted. The man taking pictures couldn’t have been more on something with his blood shot eyes trying to say the cat had just eaten.
A vet technician who was at the booth was able to get close to Takara to evaluate her eyes and behavior. In her professional opinion Takara had been drugged. She said that when the handler pulled Takara out of her crate for a “pet and play” session, she barely opened her eyes. Even when the cub was poked and prodded so the handler could show off her claws and teeth, she still appeared groggy.

Today was my first ever show in the United States at Teen Party Expo. I performed with IM5, Roshon, and Dylan Jenet. They were all amazing! The best part of today was getting to meet the spectators and signing everyone’s picture. I feel it’s always important to give back and do whatever you can for the people who support you because they are the reason why I’m up there. Also the Polished Girlz and some of the hospital patient came to the show, which made it even more amazing! I thank everyone who came out and supports me it’s unreal!

When should you care about other’s opinions? Let’s say you have a crush on the outcast in school, should you care what others think? When should you care about what other people think and when should you not? Officially we tell others that we don’t care what others may think. But of course, we do care what others may think. Due to our dependence on technology, we are now wired to connect, and seek approval from others. We want to be a part of the “in crowd”, which means obeying social norms.
Social media has caused us to live at a time of intense social insecurity. The Internet creates instant feedback, letting you know simultaneously if the approve of you or don’t. The Internet also provides a way for others that we may not know, judge us and may write hurtful comments. Again, too many opinions for us to take in, it’s important for us to find a balance. Only value a few opinions from the people that are close and truly know you. Shut out everyone else’s opinion and live your life!

Yet again, another story involving gun violence and the controversial “Stand Your Ground Law” in Florida. In November 2012, Michael Dunn stopped at a convenience store parking lot next to a car full of teenagers playing loud music. When his girlfriend entered the store, Dunn asked the teens if they would turn down the music. They began to argue, Dunn says he saw a gun in the car, so he grabbed his handgun and fired eight or nine shots at the car, killing 17-year old Jordan Davis. No weapons were recovered from the teens’ car. Dunn has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges along with three counts of attempted murder.
This high profile case is being compared to recent “Stand Your Ground” case involving George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin. Dunn had several options to diffuse the situation before it escalated to that point. The “Stand Your Ground” law shouldn’t be used to get away with murdering an innocent person.

This story sounds like something scenes from a movie, not actual events that occurring. In Gary, Indiana a mother of three claims demons caused her 12-year-old daughter to levitate and her 9-year-old son to walk on a hospital ceiling. Medical personnel and police officials support all of these accounts. When the family first moved in, things started off innocent with a creaking of a doorway and wet footprints left by a shadowy male figure. Four months after the family moved in is when things turned violent. On March 10, 2012 the mother saw her daughter floating above her bed. When the girl gained consciousness she had not recollection of the event. Two clairvoyants told the family that the house was filled with more than 200 demons. The family’s church recommended pouring olive oil on the children’s hands and feet, with smeared crosses along their foreheads, as a form of protection.
Even the police have faced eerie encounters and while at the home, the police audio recorder malfunctioned and brand-new batteries died. While listening to the recording later, an officer heard a voice whispering, “Hey,” Photos taken in the home’s basement appeared to show a cloudy image near the stairs. When the photos were enlarged, the image reportedly revealed a human face. A second, green image allegedly resembled a female figure.
The family has since moved out of the home and the new renters have encountered any unusual events. This story is frightening and hopefully the events will stop permanently.
Recently Fox News inadvertently revealed last week that Justin Bieber is reptilian alien bent on world domination. Fox News’s proof you ask? There is a video online where Justin Bieber’s eye’s change. That sounds legit, but it’s not like someone could photo shop the video. Anyways, let’s trust what Fox News has to say. Fox News has also accused Mitt Romney, Dick Cheney, and Donald Rumsfeld of being reptilians.
For those unfamiliar with the diabolical plot, a species of reptilian humanoids has long controlled the planet by adopting human form and infiltrating powerful positions. The so-called “theory” was popularized by “so-called” conspiracy theorist David Icke.
Anyways, it’s up to you what you want to Belieb!

Beyond the bright lights of this week’s Super Bowl parties in New York and New Jersey, sex trafficking will flourish in the shadows. I thought sex trafficking was some far off thing that the studios of Hollywood had dreamed up that happened in the deep dark corners of the world. That’s far from reality, the truth is sex trafficking exists in all 50 states in the U.S. Congress advocacy groups recently had a three hour hearing to highlight sex trafficking during a major sporting event. “In less than a week, New Jersey will be hosting the Super Bowl, and along with welcoming enthusiastic fans, the state also is preparing for a likely influx of both domestic and international traffickers,” Rep. Christopher Smith (R-N.J.) said at a House hearing.
“We know from the past, any sports venue — especially the Super Bowl — acts as a sex-trafficking magnet.”
According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, over 10,000 woman and girls were trafficked to Miami for the Super Bowl in 2010. Training sessions have taken place over the past several months to give hotel and transportation workers in New Jersey and New York tools for spotting possible trafficking victims. Hotel receptionists and security guards have also been told to be on the lookout for people checking in multiple younger guests without luggage and paying in cash. Police and transit workers have also been told to watch for young people who act suspiciously and don’t carry forms of identification.
Several months ago Cheerios captured our attention when they featured a black man with his white wife, and their adorable interracial daughter. Americans were outraged that Cheerios could feature such a family in their television ad mainly directed at children and young families. The ad generated so much hate from Americans that the comment feature on YouTube had to be disabled. The ad remained on the air, backed by a larger dose of popularity, and now comes an in-your-face celebration of the nation’s multi-racial evolution, however slow that may be. Cheerios is returning with another ad set to debut on the Super Bowl, with something that may be even harder for racists to swallow: a commercial that includes the news of a baby brother on the way.
We see the changing family dynamic everywhere, Disney featured the first same sex couple in a television show, and Chevrolet is set to debut an ad during the Winter Olympics featuring a same sex couple. It amazes me that we are so resistant to change, especially to the ads from companies that we grew up loving. I hope everyone can see with an open mind, and not judge people based on sexual orientation, family dynamic, and truly love one another.

My go-to song right now is “Stronger Than Me” by Amy Winehouse. Although it is one of her older songs, it’s never lost its value to me. It is a jazz song written in mostly G7 chords on the Guitar. It is, of course, a song about a guy whom she is obviously pissed at! But her voice fascinates me. To me, Amy Winehouse and Harmony Korine are among the two most fascinating people who have ever walked this earth. Although Winehouse has passed away a few years ago, her songs are still the most played on my iPod.
Although her personal life was not the best, her music touched all of us, and that’s something we should be thankful for. She will be forever remembered. RIP.

A perfect way to celebrate Valentine's Day!
It’s Sunday morning and the sun light has just begun creeping in my bedroom window. That’s been my alarm for many months now. It’s quit here; I can only hear the ticking of one clock still sitting on the floor because we’re still moving in. My chair is set in the north east corner of the living room looking out to the south at a 10 acre patch of woods. It’s very still; an occasional grey squirrel or jumpy rabbit wanders by looking for a breakfast nugget to munch on. In a couple weeks we’ll have the slider door open listening to the spring morning noises, but today, it’s quit, very quit; just the clock and the sound of my key strokes as I bang out this rant. Only I am awake here with my thought for the day.
Waking up! This is the best time of day for me; I love the still of the morning, the time to reflect of past days, their successes and failures, the time to ponder the direction for the current day and week. Some time to meditating on the Word of the Lord for the moment. I love this time of day. It brings me fresh direction, vision and passion - if I let it.
The principles I just mentioned for my morning routine are ones that leaders have used for thousands of years to shape their lives’ directions. Waking Up! That means to stop doing what we are doing, look around to see if it’s right and will bring prosperity or failure, make needed course corrections and then ship off again. Direction, vision and passion disappear sometimes in the mess we call life. That old saying “it’s hard to see the forest because the trees are in the way” is a humongous truth. Life’s issues blind us to the big picture and we get stuck there if we are not careful. We have to stop and wake up to get the big picture back in focus again and make the proper adjustments so we can forge forward in the right direction. Today’s three keys: Reflect, Ponder/Meditate and Refresh.
