2013 accord

Well I just noticed something.

The marked comment is by a woman named Brittany Eustis.For those who don’t know,she was one of Amber’s best friends but they hadn’t been seen together for about 2 years or so.

So,not only we have another person from Amber’s enviroment who took Johnny’s side but this girl was with them during the Lone Ranger promo tour in july 2013 when according to AH she hid in the bathromm of the jet cause she was afraid for her life and Johnny was drunk.This woman was with them when this supposedly happened.This is her with them in Japan airport.

So this woman knew Amber Heard very personally and was with her and Johnny when this alleged incident happened in the plane but she still took his side and praised the tag #YouCantKeepAGoodManDown.

Well isn’t that very interesting?Of course she could just hate Amber since I believe they weren’t friends anymore but I’m inclined to believe that no woman would support violence against an ex best friend,whatever went down.Whatever her feelings were for Amber even from before the divorce,we know 100% that Amber had a photo with her in the DTLA apartment.We know this cause there’s this is a frame Johnny allegedly broke in in May,when their final fight occured.

According to Makoto Shinkai, The Garden of Words was his first attempt at making a love story using the traditional Japanese meaning of “love”. During the era of the Man'yōshū, the word for “love”, koi (today written 恋) was written as 孤悲, or “lonely sadness”. As noted by Shinkai, a more modern concept of “romance”, represented by ren'ai (恋愛), came about by Western influence.

The Garden of Words emphasizes the original meaning of koi — a “longing for someone in solitude” — but in a modern setting. Loneliness is the central element of the film, according to Shinkai. In an interview, he said he created the film with the hope of cheering up people who feel lonely or incomplete in their social relations. However, he made a point that “this movie doesn’t treat loneliness as something that must be fixed.”

Historically black areas the average black family can no longer afford:

Central District, Seattle

Bayview-Hunter’s Point, San Francisco

Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn

Central East Austin, Austin

Point Breeze, Philadelphia

Harlem, New York

Bywater, New Orleans

U Street Corridor, Washington, D.C.

Greater Third Ward, Houston

According a 2013 U.S. Census report, the average black family earned $34,958 versus the average for all races of $51,939. For the average black family living in cities, this distinction means rent prices are simply too high. Gentrification is a cycle.

Full Video This footage was captured on a security camera in Sarasota, FL in June of 2013. According to the homeowner, the little girl was not harmed but the camera was broken. They have no idea how he got in or out of the house without setting off the alarm and there was no sign of forced entry. Since the break-in the family has moved out of state and asks to remain anonymous. Not sure if this truly is Wrinkles The Clown or someone posing as him. I have no idea if this is real or fake, but it looks pretty scary non-the-less.

In 37 states, error rates fell between fiscal year 2008 (the recession officially began in December 2007) through fiscal year 2013, according to a Stateline analysis of U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) data for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps.

During the downturn, many Republican lawmakers argued that billions could be saved by cutting waste, fraud and abuse in the program. A GOP-backed bill in Congress last year promised $30 billion in such savings, but the declining error rates cast doubt on that claim.

“The fact is that there are so many different levels on which the program is performing very strongly right now,” said Dottie Rosenbaum of the left-leaning Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. “It’s performing the way it was designed to.”

The “food stamp fraud epidemic” is  lie entitled rich people made up to excuse their attempts to starve poor people.

Javier Fernández [Interview]
“I’m better recognized on the streets of Japan and Russia”

Born in:
Madrid, 1991.

 Why is he here?:
Because he’s the best Spanish skater of all times, European champion in the past two years and bronze medalist in the last World Championship.

 What will he do in 2015?:
He’ll try to revalidate his title in the European championship in Stockholm, which will be disputed at the end of January, and become one of the top best in the World Championship in Shanghai this March.

The conquer of European Championship in Zabreg, in 2013, was, according to Javier Fernandez, his “most emotive title”. “Because there was my family, and because sometimes, even when you’ve been working hard for years trying to achieve it, it is difficult to take that definitive step and stand on the podium”.

He’s one of the best in the spanish sports, above many others who fill minutes of telediarios  (spanish informative programme) having way less merits. Javier Fernandez, who was born on a southern neighborhood in Madrid (Cuatro Vientos), raised on a peripherical city (Leganés), is stopped on the streets of countries such as Japan and Russia, where figure skating is more than just a familiar entertainment. Here, is starting to happen more often, because of his medal achievements.

In such a peculiar sport like this, in a futbol (soccer) – lover land as Madrid, I picture you as Billy Elliot, trying to convince everyone that this is what you wanted to do.

 J: This sport is not well-known, and starting from scratch is hard. Creating your own name in the sport, the name of your sport in the country, and the name of your country in this sport, well, it’s a bit difficult.

We’re interviewing you in a sweet moment, after (winning) the silver medal in the Grand Prix Final, the prize of the Spanish Olympic Committee…
What a good way to face the european and world championships.

 J: Yeah. It’s been a year of accomplishments and lots of good things, and there still are the two most important competitions of the season left.
It’s an honor to have received the prize from the COE (“Comité Olímpico Español” lit. Spanish Olympic Committee) together with Mireia Belmonte, who is a fantastic athlete. 

You’re coming back to Toronto soon, which is where you live, to continue with your training. How’s your every day life?

 J: I train six days a week, between two or three trainings of one hour each. And I do cardio three days a week. I don’t usually start very early, maybe at 12 o’clock or a bit earlier sometimes, but there’s always time left for doing tons of other things.

 When reading your curriculum, one finds out that after you moved for training with Brian Orser in Canada, is when the results began to show up. Is there any direct relation or it is that maybe it was already your turn (to win)?

J: Of course moving out to Toronto to train with Brian has been “a plus”, I’ve learnt and improved a lot. The truth is that since I was a kid I’ve always been a fast learner…
And when I moved to USA, with my former coach, the Russian Nikolái Morozov, I learnt a lot too.
You rise little by little as an athlete and as a person, and you learn about the sport of high competition. 

Moving overseas was a “must”, wasn’t it?

J: It depends of your level. You can achieve a very good level in Spain. But when you’re already competing against the best in the world, the little details are the ones that make the difference. And we don’t have those little details here yet, we’re working to have them.
It can be more ice time, or the condition of the rink…, small details, but if you put them all together, they make a long-term difference.

 How does a figure skater earn a living?

J: It depends of who you are…, it’s pretty complicated. You have to be a very well known worldwide skater… try to get sponsors, that helps a lot. And besides, luckily, we have exhibitions in the figure skating world, from which we get a little bit more benefits.
You can kind of earn a living with that, but then, the life of a professional figure skater is too short, 26 or 27 years. The truth is, it doesn’t last longer.

And what do you picture yourself doing after that? 

J: I want to become a coach, and remain linked to this sport, but we will see. But only a handful of them, no, a few of them can make profit from this sport for the rest of their lives. 

At the interviews done to you during competitions, you always give the sensation that it’s too little for you, that you want more. Are you aiming to become the numer one?

 J: It’s the competition. It is more than clear that I’m going to try to give my very best to keep getting as many titles as I can, and, If I improve and keep competing at this level, I hope I can get bigger challenges. But it is also clear for me that I’ve done a lot for this sport in Spain, and I’m really satisfied.

I’ve heard you saying that you can get better on basic skating skills. What does this mean? Going faster easily?

J: It is something more complex than that. It’s about speed, spins, softness…, little details that other skaters have already solved. But at the same time, they have troubles with stuff I have already mastered. 

How’s training with your principal competitor, the world and Olympic champion Yuzuru Hanyu? (they wrote Yuzu’s name wrong xD…)

J: No problems. Rivalry in competition exists, but not conflict. We compete separately, it’s not One vs. The other, there’s not direct confrontation… Where I train is like a family. There’s a pretty strong friendship in this sport, which may not be seen in other sports of high competition.

Are you recognized on streets?

J: Once in a while (laughs). Perhaps more in other countries where this sport has plenty more fans, such as Japan or Russia. It’s different in Spain, this is a very new sport, but sometimes I get stopped. It is increasing.

Lolong the Crocodile helped prove that giant crocs could and do exist in the wild. This amazing animal measure 6.17 meters - 20.2 feet - from snout to tail, and he weighed an astounding 2,370 pounds. In 2012, Lolong was entered in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest saltwater crocodile in captivity. He was kept captive as rumors that he had killed and eaten a farmer before his capture began to spread. Out of worry that the local farmers and villagers would kill him, he was kept safe in an exhibit. LoLong passed away on  the 10th of February, 2013. According to his autopsy, he died of pneumonia and cardiac arrest. 

Giant Crocodiles have been reported very often in history but until Lolong was discovered, it was not known that one could grow to such an extreme size.

Chinese chef’s visa refused for being unable to get pork recipe right

A Chinese chef’s visa request to work in Canada was refused after immigration officers found it suspicious that she couldn’t tell them the “right” way of cooking sweet and sour pork, a dish that is popular outside of China.

The 28-year-old female chef Guo Jing sent in her application to work at a Chinese restaurant in Okotoks, Canada in 2013, according to World Journal, a Chinese language newspaper based in the U.S.

However the Canadian immigration officers found some discrepancies on Guo’s visa documents, and later requested an interview, believing that there are not many female chefs in China.

The report said that immigration officers asked her for the recipe of sweet and sour pork, a dish that is arguably more popular abroad than in China, yet it took Guo about 10 minutes to figure it out.

The officers also said they thought her way of cooking the dish was different from “the normal way”, because she “obviously missed green peppers and onions”. The officers rejected her request.

Guo later issued an appeal to the immigration office, but that was also rejected.

In China there is more than one way to cook the dish, and its ingredients vary from place to place according to local tastes. The following are some variants of the dish, which one do you prefer?

New York Times finds Hillary Clinton’s claim she never sent classified email highly dubious

If, as a Democrat, you’ve lost the New York Times, it’s time to find a life jacket. Your boat is sinking.

from NY Times:

Anyone who has tried to pry information from the federal government may have been surprised on Tuesday by Hillary Rodham Clinton’s assertion that in all her emails in four years as secretary of state, she never strayed into the classified realm.

After all, a consensus among Republicans and Democrats for many years has been that the government routinely overclassifies information, reflexively stamping “secret” on mountains of documents with marginally sensitive content. The government classified more than 80 million documents in 2013, according to the Information Security Oversight Office, which publishes an annual count.

“I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email,” Mrs. Clinton said at a news conference on Tuesday at the United Nations. “I’m certainly well aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material.”

“As a longtime critic of the government’s massive overclassification, I thought it was a refreshing touch that the secretary of state conducted all her email in unclassified form,” said Thomas S. Blanton, the director of the National Security Archive at George Washington University. He spoke with a hint of sarcasm — his nonprofit organization has battled the government for decades to overcome classification claims and try to make important official documents public.

Mrs. Clinton insisted that she kept classified information out of her email, as the law required. Storing classified information in a personal, nongovernment email account on a private computer server, like the one at Mrs. Clinton’s home, would be a violation of secrecy laws.

And relations with other countries are particularly subject to secrecy claims. “Foreign government information” — information received from another government with the expectation that it will be held in confidence — is an official category of classified information in secrecy regulations.

A former senior State Department official who served before the Obama administration said that although it was hard to be certain, it seemed unlikely that classified information could be kept out of the more than 30,000 emails that Mrs. Clinton’s staff identified as involving government business.“I would assume that more than 50 percent of what the secretary of state dealt with was classified,”

read the rest

The bottom line is that Hillary Clinton broke the law and thinks you’re stupid enough to vote her into the White House anyway.

Homelessness up 12% in L.A. city and county

The homeless population jumped 12% in the last two years in both the city and county of Los Angeles, according to figures released Monday, demonstrating the continuing difficulty of taming the problem amid soaring rents, low wages and stubbornly high unemployment.

Countywide, 44,359 homeless people were tallied in January, up from 39,461 in a 2013 survey, according to a biennial report by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority. Well over half — 25,686 — were in the city of Los Angeles.

Veteran homelessness dropped 6% countywide, to 4,363, but the report did not break out a comparable number for the city. Mayor Eric Garcetti and federal officials have pledged to house every homeless veteran by the end of the year.

The number of tents, makeshift encampments and vehicles with people living in them soared 85%.

A massive meteor lit up the sky over the Atlantic

On February 6, an approximately five to seven-meter wide meteor with force comparable to an atomic bomb crashed into the Atlantic ocean off the coast of Brazil, making it the largest to strike earth since Chelyabinsk in 2013, according to Forbes. But don’t get too excited.

WHY THIS BITCH A LIAR #1

In May 2013, according to the lawsuit, the woman said she traveled to Chicago with Rose and that they went to dinner with a friend “at his house after the game he played in ended.”

However, Rose missed the entire the 2012-13 season with an injury and did not play in May.

SeaWorld sees major drop in attendance at US theme parks

One million fewer people visited SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. theme parks in 2014 vs. 2013, according to a fourth quarter earnings report issued on Wednesday. The Florida-based marine park operator is the parent company of SeaWorld San Antonio.

The drop in attendance has impacted annual revenues and adjusted net income, which are down $82.5 million and $41.9 million, respectively, from the previous year. Cash flow from operating activities decreased from $286.5 million in 2013 to $261.5 million in 2014.

The declines come as SeaWorld continues to deal with a public backlash stemming from the 2013 release of Blackfish, a documentary capturing the death of one of its trainers, Dawn Brancheau, by an orca named Tilikum. Brancheau worked at the company’s marine park in Orlando. SeaWorld has defended itself from the backlash, while it vowed in 2014 to improve its facilities for the animals.

Last July, Southwest Airlines said it was ending a promotional partnership with SeaWorld that began in 1988. Airline officials attributed the decision to “shifting priorities.”

SeaWorld has since made a number of operational changes. On Dec.11, the company announced that Jim Atchison was stepping down as CEO, effective January 15, 2015. On Dec. 12, the Orlando Sentinel reported that SeaWorld had reduced its workforce by more than 300 personnel.

David D'Alessandro, who was named interim CEO in December, continues to serve in that capacity. He said SeaWorld is “making progress” in its search for a permanent CEO and is on pace to complete that process within the next six to nine months.

D'Alessandro added that SeaWorld is beginning to see some “early signs of improvement” in its business so far this year.
