Nazril Irham Ariel 3.5 years jail Sex Scandals with gf Luna Maya

Indonesian rock star Nazril Irham aka Ariel Peterpan has been sentenced to 3.5 years or 42 months in jail for the scandal videos which rocked Indonesia in June 2010.

The sentence was given today, January 31, 2011, and according to a report from The Jakarta Globe, Ariel has also been fined Rp250 million or $28,000 (P1.2M).

This latest development from the Ariel Peterpan-Luna Maya-Cut Tari video scandal came 7 months after Ariel surrendered to the Indonesian police in June 22 days after his videos circulated on the internet.

The Nazril Ariel Peterpan video scandal was a big national controversy in Indonesia and even made headlines around the world, including here in the Philippines.

We had quite similar case here when scandalous videos of model-doctor Hayden Kho Jr with a number of women including sexy actress Katrina Halili also leaked online in May 2009 with the latter filing a case against the former for allegedly taking the video without her consent.

Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Cyborg Results

Evangelista Santos, aka Cyborg, is one of the most entertaining brawlers in the history of mixed martial arts. With a middle of the road record upon first glance and only one fight at welterweight he had many fans claiming that he was not worthy of a shot at Nick Diaz and the Strikeforce welterweight crown. For the better part of two rounds Cyborg proved the doubters wrong by going nearly punch for punch with Diaz before making a tactical error that got him submitted via armbar.

Through two rounds Cyborg stuck to the gameplan of landing hard leg kicks, right straights and uppercuts while Diaz kept distance with a powerful jab and occasional right hand. The two men seemed to be engaged in some violent agreement to take turns landing heavy blows. Diaz would pin Cyborg to the cage and flurry only to have Cyborg get distance and land leg kicks and blistering right hands and then they're repeat.

With about thirty seconds left in round two, Cyborg went for a takedown and quickly found himself defending against an armbar. Diaz was able to get the arm fully extended with about ten seconds to go and force the tap. The takedown only makes sense if it was Cyborg attempting to secure the round on the judges scorecards but it was a bad idea to play into one of Diaz's main strengths in the submission game.

Cyborg should have earned everyone's respect with his performance tonight and Diaz managed to survive a legitimate challenge to retain his title. This was a great fight to cap a fun card for Strikeforce and we should get to see if Diaz can handle another big time striker if Strikeforce makes the logical fight for him against Paul Daley.

NHL Skills Competition 2011 to Continue All Star Momentum?

The NHL skills competition 2011 is playing second fiddle this weekend. Normally, the NHL skills competition 2011 would be the major event before the All Star Game tomorrow. However, the new All Star Draft idea has stolen the spotlight in Carolina this year. After Eric Stall and Nicklas Lidstrom selected their teams in last night's big show, it may be hard for the rest of the weekend to top it. Yet the NHL skills competition 2011 might have a better chance to do that than the All Star Game itself.

In All Star events, the events before the game generate the most interest. Baseball has the Home Run Derby, while basketball highlights their slam dunk contest. For hockey, they have a variety of exhibitions for their stars to shine in.

Starting at 7 pm, the NHL skills competition 2011 will contain six events, although the competitors aren't named in advance. It begins with the Fastest Skater event between two teams of six, including a final match race between their fastest men.

Second is the Breakaway Challenge, which Alex Ovechkin has won each of the last two years. Three shooters from a team will take four shots, with fan voting to determine a winner. Afterwards, the Accuracy Shooting event has six players on two teams trying to hit their styrofoam targets.

The second half of the NHL skills competition 2011 contains the Skills Challenge Relay, the Hardest Shot, and the Elimination Shootout. At some point, all of the All Stars will take part in at least one event, with some likely to be in multiple contests.

There's no one major event that dwarfs the whole night, like with the Home Run Derby and the Slam Dunk Contest. But these events are more inclusive than the others, since everyone has to take part in something. Baseball and basketball superstars often turn down their big All Star contests, which hasn't often helped them stay relevant.

Tracy Morgan Makes Crude Sarah Palin Comment On TNT

TNT has issued an apology for Tracy Morgan’s vulgar remark about Sarah Palin on last night’s “Inside the NBA” pregame show.

During the live broadcast, co-hosts Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith asked the “30 Rock” star who was better looking - Tina Fey or Sarah Palin?

“Yo, let me tell you something about Sarah Palin. She’s good masturbation material,” Morgan responded.

Co-host Ernie Johnson then quickly cut off the comedian by saying, “I want to thank Tracy Morgan for stopping by.”

Today the network issued an apology: ”It’s unfortunate Mr. Morgan showed a lack of judgment on our air with his inappropriate comments. We apologize for any embarrassment or offense it may have caused.”

Charlie Sheen Rushed To Hospital

Charlie Sheen was rushed to the hospital this morning, TMZ has learned ... and a source at the hospital tells us, "It's serious."

We're told Charlie was taken out of his home on a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance at 7 AM.

Two young women exited the house at the same time Charlie was taken out with a towel partially over his face.

Charlie was transported to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in L.A. We're told tests were performed and doctors are waiting for results.

The 911 call was placed at 6:35 AM.

Sources say Charlie was having severe abdominal pains which triggered the 911 call. Stan Rosenfield, Charlie's publicist, tells TMZ Charlie was in the emergency room this morning -- sleeping.

We're told Charlie's father, Martin Sheen, and his mom, Janet Templeton, are at the hospital. Charlie's ex-wife, Denise Richards, is also there.

UPDATE: Neighbors tell TMZ Charlie threw some sort of party last night. They heard women inside Charlie's house singing Red Hot Chili Peppers songs throughout the evening. The party went on -- loudly -- well into the wee hours.

UPDATE: Charlie's medical emergency will not immediately affect production ... "Two and a Half Men" is on hiatus this week.

'American Idol': Chris Medina Sings For Brain Damaged Girlfriend Juliana Ramos (VIDEO)

Chris Medina is working to make two 'American Idol' dreams come true.

The 26-year old barista from Illinois appeared on Wednesday's tryout episode of the national singing competition, and brought with him his girlfriend, Juliana Ramos.

Some fans and pundits have expressed support for Medina, while others think that his motives and actions were exploitative.

Download ps3 update 3.56

Most people who tried to connect to their PlayStation 3 today must have noticed that their game console needed an update. The 3.56 firmware was released last nightt and you are advised to download as soon as possible.
Do not expect anything new from the firmware other than a minor security patch that has the ability to block homebrew.

In other terms this is obviously a first step taken by Sony to counter the major hack that PlayStation suffered in early 2011.

Steve Harvey's ex-wife slams him on YouTube

Aww snap! Comedian-turned-relationship guru Steve Harvey is barking orders at the single and lovelorn women of America on the pages of his new book, Straight Talk, No Chaser, the follow-up to his wildly-successful 2009 blockbuster, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man…. But Harvey will have to serve up more than just zingy one-liners to explain a host of deplorable accusations being hurled in his direction at the hands of his jilted former bride, Mary.

Mary, who was married to Steve for 16 years after meeting the then-up-and-coming comic in the late ’80s is putting Bruh Man on serious blast in a series of vlog tell-all that surface on YouTube over the weekend. She wants everyone to know that the successful entertainer that has become a Big Brother and Chuck Woolery of sorts to single women on the hunt for their “Forever Love” is nothing like the adulterous monster she married.


In the video, Mary details Steve’s rampant cheating with his mistresses –including one chick (identified as “Terri”) who sent a letter to Mary about unprotected sex she’d had with the funny guy — and dishes the deets of the affair he carried on with his current wife Marjorie while still married to the second Mrs. Harvey.

Ultimately, Steve allegedly abandoned Mary with no home or money — even taking their young son, Wynton, who Mary says she is no longer permitted to have a relationship with. And get this — Harvey’s reportedly filed a defamation of character lawsuit in a Texas court against Mary, who he accuses of costing him a TV talk show on The Oprah Winfrey Network!
Whoa — Pass the Popcorn!

UFC Fight for the Troops 2 results

UFC Fight for the Troops 2 results: Melvin Guillard takes out Evan Dunham4

After Evan Dunham dropped a controversial decision to Sean Sherk at UFC 119, there were many that believed that one in the loss column was deserving of an asterisk next to it.

You can go ahead and remove that now.

That's because Melvin Guillard absolutely blitzed his way to a first round knockout win over Dunham at UFC Fight Night 23: "Fight for the Troops 2" in Fort Hood, Texas.

From the very beginning of the fight it was clear that Dunham would have trouble dealing with the speed of "The Young Assassin."

After eating a big shot, "3-D" tried to turn the fight into a grappling match, clinching and shooting for a takedown. He got it but it didn't last, and when Guillard got back to his feet it was only a short time before fireworks were let off.

Since moving to the Greg Jackson camp, Guillard has looked like a much more polished striker and that showed itself in this fight.

A big right hand rocked Dunham and he was hurt enough that "The Young Assassin" knew it was time to pounce.

And like a young hungry lion, that's exactly what he did.

To Dunham's credit, he pushed forward and continued to battle for as long as he could, but a few big knees, not to mention countless unanswered shots, and he was unable to continue.

Guillard has said he wants to fight for the title by the end of 2011 after going undefeated in 2010.

Is he on his way to doing just that?

If his performance tonight was any indicator, he just might be.

Watch American Idol 2011 Premiere Online Live Stream Video

The teens are getting a big push this season, as we figured they would. Some, like Kenzie Palmer and Robbie Rosen, have impressive voices.
Victoria Huggins, on the other hand, has a Southern accent that makes Miley Cyrus sound refined. And “perky” doesn’t even start to describe the 16-year-old from Lumberton, N.C. She sings the Gladys Knight hit Midnight Train to Georgia, but it’s pure pageant. “I’m just ready to be the 2011 American Idol,” she tells the judges.
“This is my opportunity.” And it is — but it’s not for her voice. She gets by on her personality and a “Yo, yo, dawg.” In Hollywood, though, she’ll be cannon fodder.
I’m beginning to see why the Hollywood Week group was so large this year (a reported 325). This group of judges are a much softer touch than previous crews. They’re much more likely to put somebody through on the strength of their personalities. Simon would have shut 75% of those people down.

The next singer is 16-year-old a war refugee from Kosovo whose father won a green-card lottery to emigrate to the United States. So her family knows all about the feeling of getting the “golden ticket.” Now they know it twice.

Kim & Kourtney Kardashian: Wendy Williams Women

Taking care of another media appearance, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian were on the “Wendy Williams Show” earlier today (January 19).

The E! reality show stars were in the house to promote their brand new spinoff “Kourtney and Kim Take New York,” set to debut this Sunday.

In related news, Kim and Kourtney’s sister Khloe was hurt by some negative tweets this week, and has decided to steer clear of Twitter for awhile.

She wrote, "The negativity that I see, hear, or read today is out of control. I'm signing off Twitter for a little so I can remain my positive self."

Enjoy the pictures of Kim and Kourtney Kardashian visiting the "Wendy Williams Show" (January 19).

Tom Hardy: Bane

Tom Hardy: Bane

Have you ever had to pack on the pounds for a movie role? I doubt that you have and if you haven’t you most likely can’t believe that it could be done if necessary. Many actresses and actors gain or lose weight for roles as needed. Tom Hardy may look like a little guy but once you see him as Bane you will be shocked at how different he looks.

Tom Hardy is not going to be the little Inception guy anymore. He will be a lean mean super strong fellow. This English actor is going to have a lot of fun with this role. Are you excited about Tom Hardy playing this role or would you rather it be someone else?

I really don’t care who plays Bane as long as they do a good job. It’s going to be awesome to see him come to the big screen. Bane has been one of Batman’s best and most powerful foes. Good luck with making it awesome Tom Hardy.

Pakistan Earthquake: Magnitude 7.4 Quake Hits Southwestern Region

A 7.4 magnitude earthquake has been reported in southwestern Pakistan, according to the U.S. Geological Service.

The quake struck 6.2 miles underground and took place 25 miles west of Dalbandin, Pakistan. No injuries were immediately reported.

According to the AP:

The earthquake struck at 1:30 a.m. local time on Wednesday in Baluchistan province near the border with Afghanistan.
Local TV reports said the earthquake was felt in several provinces in the country.
Reuters reports that the quake did not trigger a tsunami warning for the Indian Ocean.

This is a developing story.

Venus Williams’ Short Dress: Wanted to Appear Nude Underneath

Venus Williams is continuing to make a fashion statement on the tennis court. This time, it’s what Venus wanted to wear (but decided not to) that has everyone talking!


Venus started the Australian Open wearing a super short tennis dress that acted more like just a shirt, USA Today reports.

Venus described her ensemble as an “illusion dress” because she wanted to wear flesh-colored shorts to give the illusion she was going commando.

“But at the last minute I decided not to,” Venus told photographers after she won her opening-round match.


Venus decided to wear black shorts instead.

“A lot of the focus of the dress is the zipper,” she added.

Wonder if she’ll be brave enough to wear the flesh-colored shorts the next round? Do you think she should?

Golden Globes 2011 Date: Live Sunday

The date for the 68th annual Golden Globes 2011 is Sunday night (tonight). The Globes are typically viewed as a precursor to the Oscars, where many of the same nominees see additional nods for their performances.
When is the Golden Globes 2011 date? It’s on right now!
NBC has the Golden Globes arrival special on at 7pm ET, followed by the awards show at 8pm.

Turn it on now so you don’t miss all the red carpet arrivals. I love to guess whose outfits are going to end up on the best and worst dressed lists: my taste is not always the same as the fashion experts. Sometimes the fashion generates more buzz than the awards

The Golden Globe Awards 2011 air this Sunday night, and include 12 movie categories. There are a lot of known names in tonight’s lineup, and many fear/horror fans are surely rooting for Natalie Portman as she is the front runner for best actress in her role for Black Swan.

The movie Black Swan also received two other nominations for the Golden Globes 2011, including a nod for best director and best supporting actress. We definitely want to wish them all luck tonight.
Presentation of “The 68th Annual Golden Globe® Awards” will be a live telecast on NBC Television beginning at 5 PM PST and 8 PM EST. So after watching your NFL playoff games, grab some grub and sit down with your friends or family and watch the show.

Santonio Holmes' Great Leaping Touchdown Catch Has Jets Soaring

The Jets brought Santonio Holmes in this offseason with the hope that his athleticism would translate to production and a new go-to receiver for Mark Sanchez. The jury's still out on both of those counts, but it's hard to argue that Holmes hasn't been clutch, and he added to the argument in his favor today against the Patriots.

That is a great seven-yard touchdown catch — Holmes hauls it in over his shoulder and then gets not just both feet but a knee down inbounds in the Patriots' end zone — but it's also a hugely important one. That catch came on the heels of a Patriots touchdown to cut the Jets' lead to a field goal, and on a third and four that determined whether the Jets would lead by one or two possessions.

That catch forced the Patriots to try to get two scores to tie, and that has already proved too tall a task for New England, barring a miracle. All the Jets have to do now to make it to the AFC Championship Game is hold onto a 28-14 lead with less than two minutes to go.

Miss America 2011 Winner: Miss Nebraska Teresa Scanlan

The annual Miss America pageant aired tonight and the winner has just been announced. Your 2011 Miss America is Miss Nebraska Teresa Scanlan - but did she deserve it?

Many fans were upset that Miss Delaware Kayla Martell didn’t get a question and make it into the finals and many were upset that Miss Texas Ashley Melnick didn’t make it either (she and Miss Hawaii were my picks from the first round so I’m just as disappointed as many of you are)

Here are some interesting facts about Miss Nebraska (via the Miss America Website):

Age: 17

Scottsbluff High School

Platform Issue: Eating Disorders: A Generation at Risk

Talent: Piano

Scholastic Honors: To attend law school

Career Ambition: To become a judge and eventually a politician

Local Competition Sponsor: Miss Southeast Nebraska Scholarship Program

State Competition Sponsor: Miss Nebraska Scholarship Program

Teresa Scanlan competed against several beautiful women in the coveted Miss America competition – not to be confused with the Miss USA pageant – but was ultimately decided as the winner by the panel of judges.

What’s the Difference Between the Miss America Pageant and the Miss USA Pageant?

This is a famous question that has been asked by pageant fans all over the world every year. The difference between the Miss America pageant and the Miss USA pageant isn’t as easy to explain as you might think – but I’ll give it a try: Basically, they are two very similar competitions, just owned by different organizations. It would be like comparing Ellen Degeneres and Oprah Winfrey – they’re both popular talk show hosts, just owned by different television networks.

The other notable differences between Miss USA and Miss America are that the Miss America pageant has a talent portion of the competition and the winner of Miss USA goes on to compete in the Miss Universe pageant, the winner of Miss America does not.

Miss Nebraska’s Teresa Scanlan will be responsible for holding the title and representing the Miss America organization over the next year.

Steelers Vs Ravens-Pittsburgh steelers beat Baltimore Ravens 31-24

The Steelers Vs Ravens match has finally ended.Short fields and costly mistakes told the story of the Steelers’ 31-24 victory at Heinz Field ,AFC championship game 2011.
The Pittsburgh Steelers stood around as the Baltimore Ravens scored an inexplicable first-half touchdown. The Baltimore Ravens approached a 21-7 lead during the first half, silencing the crowd of 64,879 by forcing two Pittsburgh turnovers they converted into 14 points.
The Pittsburgh Steelers roared back during second half by scoring 17 points off three Ravens turnovers to take a 24-21 lead.The Steelers (13-4) were trailing 21-7 at halftime after turnovers created two Ravens touchdowns. But they came back with the help of three Baltimore turnovers in the third quarter. To the surprise of nobody, Baltimore came back to tie the score with 3:54 left in the fourth quarter on a 24-yard field goal by Billy Cundiff at the AFC championship game 2011.
Ben Roethlisberger hit rookie Antonio Brown on a 58-yard pass play on third-and-19, and Rashard Mendenhall scored from the 2 with 1:33 remaining to give the Steelers a 31-24 comeback victory over the Ravens in an AFC divisional playoff game Saturday.
Roethlisberger completed 19 of 32 passing attempts for 226 yards and two touchdowns. The Baltimore defense sacked him six times.
“What better way to put the Ravens out of the tournament,” Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward said. “They keep asking for us and we keep putting them out of the tournament. They’re going to be ticked about this for a long time.”

Broadcast's Trish Keenan Dies

We're deeply saddened to report that Broadcast frontwoman Trish Keenan has died. A statement on the Warp Records site reads:

"It is with great sadness we announce that Trish Keenan from Broadcast passed away at 9am this morning in hospital. She died from complications with pneumonia after battling the illness for two weeks in intensive care. Our thoughts go out to James, Martin, her friends and her family and we request that the public respect their wishes for privacy at this time. This is an untimely tragic loss and we will miss Trish dearly - a unique voice, an extraordinary talent and a beautiful human being. Rest in Peace."

Keenan was one of the founding members of Broadcast, who formed in the mid-1990s as a quintet and released a series of singles on Wurlitzer Jukebox and Duophonic Records before being approached by Warp, who compiled the single releases on the 1997 compilation Work and Non Work. The band released its debut full-length, The Noise Made by People, in 2000; that record established a cosmopolitan pop sound reminiscent of Stereolab while also taking influence from the more experimental sounds of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.

In 2003, Broadcast released their sophomore full-length, Haha Sound, which featured slightly harsher textures amidst the band's continued draw from 60s pop, early electronic, film soundtracks (particularly the Czech film Valerie and Her Week of Wonders), and avant-garde influences. In 2005, only Keenan and multi-instrumentalist James Cargill remained as members of the band, releasing Broadcast's third full-length, Tender Buttons, which took the band's sound in an even harsher, more staticky direction while still prominently featuring Keenan's sleepy, high-register coo.

Another singles and rarities compilation, The Future Crayon, was released the following year; the duo then remained relatively silent until their most recent release, 2009's collaboratiive mini-LP with experimental musician Julian House's project the Focus Group, Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age.

New Zodiac Signs: Astrological Signs Change

Looking to become a “new you” in 2011? Well, a new revelation by astronomer Parke Kunkle is going to make that a whole lot easier.

According to Kunkle, the Earth’s alignment has changed over the past few hundred thousand years, making what you thought was your astrological sign, actually incorrect.

The reputable astronomer insists that the signs you were born into have changed and a one-month gap in the zodiac signs is the result of that change.

So what does that mean for you?

If you used to be a Virgo, you’re now a Leo. If you used to be a Leo, you’re now a Cancer – and so forth.

But that’s not all.

In addition to changing the signs, the astronomers want to add a thirteenth zodiac sign called Ophiuchus. You’re an Opiuchus if your birthday falls from Nov 29 – Dec 17.

Furthermore, the new zodiac sign dates overlap one another. As you can see below, any person whose birthday falls on the last possible day of the sign, also falls into the first day of the next sign. For instance, if your birthday is on August 10, technically you fall into both the Cancer and the Leo categories. I guess, at that point, you just choose which one you like better J.

Try explaining this one to your children!

Here’s the complete list of old vs. new. Take a look and let us know what you think about this news:

Launcher Cannot Obtain Patching Information Wow

World of Warcraft players are experiencing a frustrating ‘launcher cannot obtain patching information‘ error message all over the world. Forums and blogs are abuzz with complaints, fix ideas, suggestions, and lots of venting of frustration. The WOW community is coming together for each other and are helping players who were struck with the inconvenience to get back into the game.
One fix that seems to have worked that I found on a blog suggested this:

Please remove any custom proxy settings.
Go into Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options> Connections> LAN settings and make sure that you Select Automatically Detect settings.
And make sure that you have Use Automatic configuration Script and Use a Proxy server not checked.
If this doesn’t work, renewing your IP address and flushing your DNS cache can often help resolve connection issues.

The game’s popularity and success has had such an impact on Blizzard Entertainment that the company is hiring for multiple positions in order to keep up.

With an audience of this size, you can imagine how detrimental a glitch like this can be.

Iran plane crash kills 71

An IranAir jet carrying 106 people crashed as it was making an emergency landing Sunday in a snowstorm in the country's northwest and broke into several pieces, killing 71 of those on board, Iranian media reported.

The others survived, some with only light injuries.

The pilots of the Boeing 727, operated by Iran's national airline, attempted the emergency landing in the city of Orumiyeh after reporting a technical failure to the control tower, the semiofficial Mehr news agency reported, quoting a deputy provincial governor, Ebrahim Fatholahi.

The nature of the technical failure was unclear. A spokesman for the Iranian civil aviation organization, Abbas Mosayebi, said only that the plane "faced an incident," state TV reported.

The network also said the aircraft disappeared from radar and went down in farmland after making a second attempt to land. There was no word on what might have caused the crash. The aircraft was headed from Tehran to Orumiyeh, capital of West Azerbaijan province, a distance of about 736 kilometres.

State TV aired footage showing rescue workers and local farmers searching for survivors Sunday night in parts of the wrecked plane under snowfall and in the darkness.

Thirty-five people survived, including two crew members, said Javad Mahmoudi, another deputy governor for West Azerbaijan, speaking to State TV. He put the number of confirmed dead at 71.

Some of the passengers were only lightly injured and able to walk off the plane and some had to be hospitalized, Mosayebi said.

Heavy snow complicated rescue efforts, said the head of the State Emergency Centre, Gholam Reza Masoumi, according to the semiofficial Fars news agency. That report also said there was fog in the area.

The plane broke into several pieces, but there was no explosion or fire, said Mahmoud Mozaffar, head of the rescue department of Iran's Red Crescent Society, speaking on state TV.

Iran has a history of frequent air accidents blamed on its aging aircraft and poor maintenance. IranAir's fleet includes Boeing and Airbus aircraft, many of them bought before the country's 1979 Islamic Revolution, which led to a cutoff in ties with the U.S.

Iranian airlines, including those run by the state, are chronically strapped for cash, and maintenance has suffered, experts say. U.S. sanctions prevent Iran from updating its 30-year-old American aircraft and make it difficult to get European spare parts or planes as well. The country has come to rely on Russian aircraft, many of them Soviet-era planes that are harder to get parts for since the Soviet Union's fall.

In July 2009 a Russian-made jetliner crashed in northwest Iran shortly after taking off from the capital, killing all 168 on board.

In February 2003 a Russian-made Ilyushin 76 carrying members of the Revolutionary Guard crashed in the mountains of southeastern Iran, killing 302 people aboard.

Is Facebook Shutting Down

No this is an Internet Rumor.
Facebook just secured $500 million in new financing and is on pace for a public offering this year. While I can not confirm any true source for who may have started the rumor I was able to find the following quote on

“Facebook has gotten out of control,” said Zuckerberg in a press conference outside his Palo Alto office, “and the stress of managing this company has ruined my life. I need to put an end to all the madness.”

“After March 15th the whole website shuts down,” said Avrat Humarthi, Vice President of Technical Affairs at Facebook. “So if you ever want to see your pictures again, I recommend you take them off the internet. You won’t be able to get them back once Facebook goes out of business.”

Facebook has become a titan on the internet. While not the money generating giant that Google has become, it does touch more peoples lives than any other single website [based on average time spent.] Thus personal production within the work space has been affected by Facebook and the apps that are attached to it. For example it is reported that there are 18 million people on Farmville and the average person spends 17 minutes per day playing. Hmm personal time or company time?

Again this is just a rumor.
Facebook Shutting Down: Hoax of Grandeur & Moronic Proportions
Sometimes I get a kick out of the odd hoaxes floating around the net. And, at times, I shake my head and think to myself: How unbelievably stupid can one be.

Tonight, while looking at trending topics on social channels, I noticed people talking about Facebook shutting down. Some websites are going as far as quoting Mark Zuckerberg, though I truly believe the quotes are fabrications. Actually, I’m positive.

Ladies and gentleman, Facebook was recently crowned the most visited website in 2010, and was valued at $50-billion by Goldman Sachs. Do you really think it’s shutting down? Cummon’ now.

Alright, no more ranting and back to work.

The gunman has reportedly been taken into custody.

UPDATE 2.09 PT -- President Barack Obama's statement:

"This morning, in an unspeakable tragedy, a number of Americans were shot in Tucson, Arizona, at a constituent meeting with Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. And while we are continuing to receive information, we know that some have passed away, and that Representative Giffords is gravely wounded. We do not yet have all the answers.

I ask all Americans to join me and Michelle in keeping Representative Giffords, the victims of this tragedy, and their families in our prayers."

UPDATE: 1.28 PM PT -- Arizona Senator John McCain's statement: “I am horrified by the violent attack on Representative Gabrielle Giffords and many other innocent people by a wicked person who has no sense of justice or compassion. I pray for Gabby and the other victims, and for the repose of the souls of the dead and comfort for their families. I beg our loving Creator to spare the lives of those who are still alive, heal them in body and spirit, and return them to their loved ones. Whoever did this; whatever their reason, they are a disgrace to Arizona, this country and the human race, and they deserve and will receive the contempt of all decent people and the strongest punishment of the law.”

UPDATE 1.03 PM PT -- A surgeon is "very optimistic" about Rep. Giffords. He adds that she was shot in the head "through and through." "We cannot tell what kind of recovery but I'm about as optimistic as it can get in this situation."

UPDATE 12.47 PM PT -- It's been reported the judge who was killed at today's shooting was John Roll.

Homeless man w/golden radio voice in Columbus, OH

Columbus offered $15,000 to have the show hire this man for the show UPDATE2: I just spoke with Doral Chenoweth, the photographer/videographer who shot this piece for The Columbus Dispatch. He informed me that Ted can usually be found at the Hudson ramp off of I-71 South

(for those of you who live in Columbus). If anyone in the Columbus area can check him out, hopefully we can find a way to contact him (Doral said he did not learn where Ted lives, but Doral knows there are no nearby homeless shelters). Also, Doral was an awesome guy on the phone, he told me his wife is carrying around a restaurant gift certificate in her car for Ted in hopes she’ll see him again. If anyone needs any photography/videography work, look him up Doral on the internets here or here.
UPDATE3: I received an e-mail from the the radio jocks who featured the sound-byte from this video on their show 1/4/11. They are considering hiring Ted using the $15K donation one of the listeners said they would donate for his salary. If they choose to hire Ted, they will e-mail me. They asked that I not release their e-mail account.

UPDATE4: joshfitz posted a tweet by the radio jocks, they’ll have Ted’s story featured on their radio show Thursday! I am going to contact the RJs again to see if they were able to get contact information for Ted that they can share!

Ladyfingers has offered to buy Ted a phone, is there anyone in Columbus who can PM with Ladyfingers to get that phone to Ted?

UPDATE7: [The Morning Zoo]( tracked down Ted! They’ll be hosting Ted on their radio show tomorrow, Wednesday January 5th at 7:15am EST! The link above has a “listen live” section, so we can all tune in then!

UPDATE8: jhietter has offered to sponsor Ted through this transition and oxytechx would like to get Ted work in the UK

Thank you so much for those of you who donated, but please don’t donate anymore, its probably prudent to not overwhelm Ted and instead give him a fair amount to get himself established again.

Omaha School Shooting

Suspect Dead, 2 Principals Injured in Omaha School Shooting
Omaha World-Herald
OMAHA, Neb. – The Millard South High student who shot his principal and an assistant principal Wednesday and then killed himself posted a farewell message on Facebook.
Robert Butler Jr., 17, was found dead in a car from a self-inflicted gunshot wound at about 1:30 p.m. CST.

About 40 minutes earlier, he shot Principal Curtis Case and Assistant Principal Vicki Kaspar inside the school. He did not shoot any students.
Case was listed mid-afternoon in serious but stable condition at Creighton University Medical Center.
Kaspar was in critical condition at Creighton.
Millard Superintendent Keith Lutz described Case as “young and energetic … I’m sure he’ll pull through this.”
Robert was the son of Omaha Police Det. Robert Butler and attended Lincoln Southwest High School last year. A person familiar with the investigation said it is believed Robert used his father’s Glock.
The younger Butler’s body was found dead at in a red Honda Accord in a parking lot.

Lincoln school officials said Wednesday that Butler transferred from Lincoln Southwest High School to Millard South on Oct. 6 but had not been forced to transfer.
“He was popular with students and seemed real pleasant,” said Southwest Principal Rob Slauson, who described Butler as “a fairly normal, average” student.
Friends, some crying, came to the school office about 2:45 p.m., after learning of Butler’s involvement via text messages.
“Obviously, we were in shock,” Slauson said.
Before moving to Omaha, Butler had spent his entire school career in Lincoln, first at Sheridan Elementary in south-central Lincoln and then at Scott Middle School and Lincoln Southwest, which are both on the southwestern edge of the city.
“Our hearts and prayers go out to the Millard South community … And also to Robert Butler’s family,” Slauson said.
Omaha Police Chief Alex Hayes said the first call to 911 came in at 12:50 p.m. A school resource officer at Millard South put out a “Help an Officer” call, and several officers rushed to the scene.
Arriving officers learned that the suspect had fled in a red Honda. The car was located about 1:25 p.m.
The chief said it would take investigators awhile to determine the suspect’s motives.
The school was locked down immediately following the shooting.
Lutz said schools practice for these kinds of situations, but nothing can fully prepare students and teachers for the reality: “There are some things you are not going to be prepared for.”
He said the district would be looking at how Butler was able to bring the gun into the school.

ESPN Fires Announcer Ron Franklin Over Sexist Remarks

Veteran ESPN sportscaster Ron Franklin has been fired after he reportedly made sexist comments to sideline reporter Jeannine Edwards, calling her in a condescending tone "sweet baby" or "sweetcakes," according to different accounts, as well as an "a**hole." The termination follows a media firestorm yesterday when word of the incident, which had happened during a staff meeting on Friday, leaked. It forced Franklin, a 20-year ESPN veteran who called mostly college football and basketball games, to issue a public apology. That wasn't enough. "Based on what occurred last Friday, we have ended our relationship with him," an ESPN spokesman said in a statement.
