What Happened to the Katrina Supplies?

Posted by blazzin on July 22, 2008

According to Cnn.com

“Federal officials vastly overestimated the value of hurricane relief supplies given away earlier this year, the Federal Emergency Management Agency reported Monday.

Debra Reed lived in a tent after Katrina and says she needed the supplies given away by FEMA.

Debra Reed lived in a tent after Katrina and says she needed the supplies given away by FEMA.

The General Services Administration, which manages federal property, over-counted cases of toilet paper, plastic sporks and other cutlery, by mistakenly counting a single item as being worth as much as multiple items contained in a package of goods.

The original GSA estimate of $85 million should have been $18.5 million, according to figures released by GSA and FEMA.

The household goods were supposed to go to people whose homes were destroyed by hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005. But the items were stored in warehouses in Louisiana, and then Fort Worth, Texas. A recent CNN investigative story exposed that those materials never made it to storm victims.

GSA officials were asked recently to reassess the total cost of donated items in what the agency called a routine audit.

“In doing so, it was determined that some of the unit costs were ‘eaches’ and others were ‘for-case’ lots. The final adjustments reveal there was a significant overstatement in the total asset valuation,” GSA officials reported to FEMA, which released the findings Monday.

For example, each spork was assigned the value of an entire case, inflating the original estimated value of the supplies a thousandfold to $36 million from $36,000. Packs of toilet paper originally estimated to be worth $1.5 million dropped to about $18,000, and plastic cutlery kits, from $6.3 million to about $25,000.

“The actual total value of the surplus property was determined to be approximately $18.5 [million], and this figure was validated by both FEMA and the GSA Office of Personal Property Management,” FEMA told CNN in an e-mail.

GSA spokeswoman Viki Reath said Monday she would investigate whether it is unusual for the agency to make such a large accounting mistake.

The agency told CNN in February that the value of the FEMA items was about $85 million.

The Boss – Rick Ross ?

Posted by blazzin on July 22, 2008

I am sure everyone knows that Rick Ross was allegedly a CO . What I don’t understand is….. why is that a problem? Honestly what King Pin do  you know traffics the amount of weight this fool talks about and no one knows about it… or better yet has never even seen a jail (except for work).. or even that is  willing repeat his crimes in a song for the world to hear . Rick Ross is an image, not to be confused with real life. There is nothing wrong with working a legitimate job to pay some bills and take care of a family, but there is something wrong when you would rather be classified as a drug selling loser than an honest hard working man no matter what the job was. YOU SUCK RICK ROSS…. not because you were a CO but because you are falling victim to the stereotype and sending negative messages to our youth that there is a problem with actually working for yours…. F**&king Idiot… 

 

 

These fool are my fuel so I make them Cool…Lupe

Boy 15 Murdered Because of His Sexuality…

Posted by blazzin on July 20, 2008

This is so sad….. I don’t discriminate no matter what your race or sexually preference. No one has the right to pick and choose who lives and who dies. Who you have sex with should not determine if you are a good or bad person. We all have hearts, we all have souls, and we all deserve a fair chance.

Rest In Peace…. You may be gone but you will never be forgotten…

 

“On the morning of Feb. 12, Larry left his glitter and his heels at home. He came to school dressed like any other boy: tennis shoes, baggy pants, a loose sweater over a collared shirt. He seemed unhappy about something. He hadn’t slept much the night before, and he told one school employee that he threw up his breakfast that morning, which he sometimes did because he obsessed over his weight. But this was different. One student noticed that as Larry walked across the quad, he kept looking back nervously over his shoulder before he slipped into his first-period English class. The teacher, Dawn Boldrin, told the students to collect their belongings, and then marched them to a nearby computer lab, so they could type out their papers on World War II. Larry found a seat in the middle of the room. Behind him, Brandon McInerney pulled up a chair.

Brandon, 14, wasn’t working on his paper, because he told Mrs. Boldrin he’d finished it. Instead, he opened a history book and started to read. Or at least he pretended to. “He kept looking over at Larry,” says a student who was in the class that morning. “He’d look at the book and look at Larry, and look at the book and look at Larry.” At 8:30 a.m., a half hour into class, Brandon quietly stood up. Then, without anyone’s noticing, he removed a handgun that he had somehow sneaked to school, aimed it at Larry’s head, and fired a single shot. Boldrin, who was across the room looking at another student’s work, spun around. “Brandon, what the hell are you doing!” she screamed. Brandon fired at Larry a second time, tossed the gun on the ground and calmly walked through the classroom door. Police arrested him within seven minutes, a few blocks from school. Larry was rushed to the hospital, where he died two days later of brain injuries.

The Larry King shooting became the most prominent gay-bias crime since the murder of Matthew Shepard 10 years ago. But despite all the attention and outrage, the reason Larry died isn’t as clear-cut as many people think. California’s Supreme Court has just legalized gay marriage. There are gay characters on popular TV shows such as “Gossip Girl” and “Ugly Betty,” and no one seems to notice. Kids like Larry are so comfortable with the concept of being openly gay that they are coming out younger and younger. One study found that the average age when kids self-identify as gay has tumbled to 13.4; their parents usually find out a year later.

Russell Simmons 40K Child Support Payments

Posted by blazzin on June 26, 2008

According to Ballerstatus.com

 

Russell Simmons’ divorce from Kimora Lee Simmons is gonna cost him a pretty penny in child support — $480,000 per year to be exact.

In court documents, obtained by TMZ and filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday (June 24), it looks like the hip-hop mogul is to pay $20,000 per month for each of his two daughters, Ming Lee and Aoki Lee, beginning in July.

While Kimora maintains sole custody of the two children, Russell will get visitation rights. He will get his kids every eighth week from Saturday until the following Saturday when they are to be returned at 6:00 p.m., according to the documents, which will take place in Los Angeles, where Kimora resides. However, holidays, summers, and vacations, are also options.

Once reading through the documents, it’s revealed that the $40,000 per month isn’t the only thing he’s responsible for either.

The couple’s Saddle River, New Jersey home, which was featured on MTV’s “Cribs” in the past, has been put on the market, and Kimora will be able to occupy the residence until it sals. On top of that, Russell is told to fork out $18,000 for up-keep per month to Kimora until it is sold.

Later in the court documents, it says that Russell is responsible for providing Kimora with a vehicle every two years, valued at no less than $60,000.

Despite all the big money he has to shell out, he may seek a reduction in monthly payments if his income falls 30% below what he filed in his 2008 tax filing.

These child support payments will commence until 2019 for Ming Lee and 2022 for Aoki.

Don Imus Is A Racist….

Posted by blazzin on June 24, 2008

Don Imus

According to NewsDay.com

“After uttering racist and sexist remarks toward the Rutgers women’s basketball team, was taking heat again Monday for a questionable comment.

It occurred during his morning program on WABC radio, while Imus and sportscaster Warner Wolf were addressing Dallas Cowboys football star Adam “Pacman” Jones’ involvement in a fight at a Las Vegas nightclub last year that led to a shooting. Jones, who was not accused of the shooting, was suspended for the 2007 season.

When Wolf said Jones had been “arrested six times since he was drafted by Tennessee in 2005,” Imus responded by asking “What color is he?”

“He’s African-American,” Wolf said.

“Well, there you go,” Imus said. “Now we know.”

Imus had earlier said of Jones’ suspension: “You’re in a nightclub, for God’s sake. What do you think’s gonna happen in a nightclub? People are drinking and doing drugs; there are women there and people have guns.”

In an e-mail message to The New York Times Monday night, Imus said his comment was intended to be sympathetic with Jones; “I meant he was being picked on because he’s black.”

Imus wrote he would ask black comedian-activist Dick Gregory, a scheduled guest on his show Tuesday, what he thought of Monday’s remarks.

“I mean … come on!” Imus wrote.

Wolf Monday night said he was surprised the exchange had generated controversy.

Wolf said regular listeners would recognize it as part of a running, satirical joke in which Imus pokes fun at people who get into serious trouble, then cry racism. He made a similar joke about the Chicago BearsCedric Benson earlier this month after the football player’s latest arrest.

“I think people are looking for something there that just isn’t there,” Wolf said.

The Rev. Al Sharpton said he found the comment “disturbing because it plays into stereotypes.”

But he said he would reserve judgment while deciding whether the remarks warrant “direct action on our part as we did in April of last year.”

Wowwww….

JACKSONVILLE BEACH, FL (First Coast News) – A 24-year old Jacksonville Beach woman is facing felony child neglect charges after police say neighbors found her two year old son wandering in the street wearing a soiled diaper carrying a beer bottle.
Jessica Nicole Hughes was arrested when she returned home after being contacted by police.

She was described as extremely intoxicated at the time of her arrest.

Authorities called Jax Beach Fire & Rescue to check on the little boy, who was bleeding from a piece of broken glass in his foot, and to be sure he hadn’t consumed alcohol.

“Fortunately, it did not appear the child had ingested any alcohol,” said Jax Beach Sergeant Thomas Bingham.

Jamie Lynn Spears Gives Birth

Posted by blazzin on June 20, 2008

Congrats

JACKSON, Mississippi (AP) — Jamie Lynn Spears gave birth to a girl Thursday morning at a south Mississippi hospital, according to a person close to the Spears family.

Jamie Lynn Spears gave birth to a baby girl Thursday morning at a south Mississippi hospital.

Jamie Lynn Spears gave birth to a baby girl Thursday morning at a south Mississippi hospital.

The person confirmed the baby’s birth but asked not to be identified because the family had not announced the baby’s birth.

The 17-year-old was the star of Nickelodeon’s “Zoey 101,” a sitcom about prep school friends, and is the younger sister of pop star Britney Spears.

The Spears family announced in December that Jamie Lynn was pregnant. The father is Casey Aldridge, a pipe-layer from Liberty, Mississippi. The couple is not married but announced an engagement several months ago.

A message left at the Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center, where Spears gave birth, was not immediately returned Thursday, and the family could not immediately be reached for comment.

The younger Spears lives near Liberty with Aldridge, 19, and has been seen around the small south Mississippi town often as her pregnancy became more apparent. Her family owns a home across the state line in Kentwood, Louisiana. Click Here for more
