Rick Ross says he won’t sign women rappers because he’s afraid he’ll sleep with them

  • Rick Ross aka Mr. “Put Molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it” was recently asked by Angela Yee on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club why he hasn’t signed any female rappers. His response:
    • You know, I never did it because I always thought, like, I would end up fucking a female rapper and fucking the business up. … I’m so focused on my business. I gotta be honest with you. You know, she looking good. I’m spending so much money on her photo shoots. I gotta fuck her couple times.
  • Ross inadvertently spoke to a much larger dynamic that has hurt women rappers trying to make it in the industry: They are routinely sexualized and judged on their appearance, rather than their rap abilities.
  • It’s easy to dismiss Ross’ comments as a joke, but as Brooklyn-based emcee Nitty Scott said in an email, ignoring Ross isn’t good enough because he is “quite literally articulating and embodying the dominant mentality being imposed on female artists regularly.” Read more (7/26/17)

Lil Duval joked about murdering trans women on ‘The Breakfast Club.’ They should have pushed back

  • For Duval — a stand-up comedian who was a finalist on BET’s comedy competition Coming to the Stage and has made regular appearances on MTV2 shows such as Guy Code and Ain’t That America — this feat was accomplished during his latest appearance on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club on Friday. During that stint, he joked about murdering transgenderwomen — a reality that is far from funny.
  • Host Charlamagne tha God first asked Duval about Donald Trump’s decision to ban trans men and women from serving in the military. Duval said, “Man, don’t be asking me nothing like that,” then shouted out his “gay ass sister” and proceeded to use the slur “tranny.” He was corrected by the laughing show hosts.
  • Then DJ Envy posed a hypothetical question to Duval: if a woman he was dating and sleeping with disclosed that she’s trans four months into their relationship, what would we he do?
  • In response, Duval said, “This might sound messed up and I don’t care. She dying. I can’t deal with that.” Charlamagne tha God noted quickly, “That’s a hate crime. You can’t do that.” Read More (8/1/31)

IDF M50/M51 Super Sherman

An Israeli modernizartion and modification to the WWII vintage M4 Sherman, the M50 and M51 Super Sherman served with the IDF from the mid-1950s up until the 1980s.

The M50 (bottom) was the result of the Israelis deciding while they liked the French AMX-13, they liked its high-power 75mm CN 75-50 gun even more. While the Israelis did eventually purchase some AMX-13s, in a parallel development, it was decided to graft the powerful French gun onto the available, familiar and better-armored hull of the M4 Sherman, then the standard tank of the IDF armored units in the early 1950.

The M51 (top) was an even more powerful version of the M50. Developed in the 1960s, 180 Sherman tanks received the amazing French 105 mm Modèle F1 gun. The barrel length of the gun was reduced from 56 caliber to 44 and equipped with a muzzle brake; ammunition was altered to use a smaller cartridge. M4A1 hulls and the larger T23 turrets (from 76 mm armed Shermans) were used for the conversion.

In combat against the Arab armies, the M-51 proved itself capable of fighting newer, heavier tanks like the Soviet-built T-54/55/T-62. The M-51’s 105 mm gun could penetrate these adversaries using HEAT ammunition. The M-51 served well during its time, and is regarded as an excellent example of how an obsolete tank (the Sherman) can be upgraded beyond the limits of its original capabilities.

By the 1980s the Super Shermans had been replaced by Centurions, though around 75 were gifted to the Israeli-backed Lebanese Christian militias during the Lebanon War.

K.Flay is easily one of my favorite artists to come out of San Francisco Bay. Even though she went to Stanford, which is Cal’s rival, I’m not mad. Her brand of gritty hip hop and electronic pop has delighted my ears far too much for me to complain. One of my favorite tracks off her album Life As A Dog (which I contributed to via crowd funding) is Can’t Sleep. I also love the Vanic remix of the tune. K.flay’s new video for Can’t Sleep begs a requisite re-share of Can’t Sleep. I can’t wait to catch K.Flay live again for the, umm, umpteenth time, at LIve 105′s BFD come early June.

Bishop Briggs’ passionate and fiery music has propelled her to the top tier of my artists to watch list this year, and there’s no doubt in my mind that she’s a personal favorite, too. I was elated when she made her television debut on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon a few short weeks ago, and I was spellbound by her powerful voice and magnificent stage presence at Live 105’s BFD earlier this summer. The Los Angeles based rising star released a new track on Friday, adding to her collection of stupendous tunes with Pray (Empty Gun). Unlike The Way I Do, Wild Horses, and River, Pray is a far more electronic offering, showing us a somewhat different side of this immensely talented artist. In fact, Pray (Empty Gun) is a slow whomping, steady marching trap pop ballad. Despite reining in some of the bombastic energy and reeling fervor we’ve grown accustomed to, Bishop Briggs still exudes ardent intensity on the taut gripping, grandly shimmering tune. Pray (Empty Gun) is available now from iTunes.

anonymous asked:

So 85 is a good temperature for ball pythons. I absolutely agree. What should I do if it's 105 outside and 95 in my apartment and a steady 88 in my ball python's tub? We talk a lot about heating mechanisms, but not a lot about cooling. It's hard to maintain a gradient when a thermostat on my UTH is all I know in terms of temperature regulation. I once read that bps will get in their water dish if they're too hot, too. Thoughts on all of this?

There is no “ideal” temperature for ball pythons… that was what that entire ask was about. They require a heat gradient from 78-85 degrees. No one talks about cooling because there is no cooling apparatus for terrariums and no good long term or cheap fix. The best you can do is purchase a portable a/c unit to cool the room the snake is kept in. If the heat is short term (less than a few weeks) you can place a frozen water bottle in the enclosure every few hours, every day (how ever long it takes to melt) to help the snake thermoregulate. ball pythons should not have to soak in their waterbowls to find relief. they are not aquatic animals and would not naturally find bodies of water to sit in for extended periods of time. not to mention long term soaking can cause skin problems. imo if someone cannot provide the proper temperatures for the animals they keep they should rehome the animal. i know that’s not what you want to hear but its all for their well being and benefit of the animal. being kept at 88 degrees constantly is very unfair to the ball python. sorry.
