Man gets 92 years in Ohio frat house shooting...

A man has been sentenced to 92 years to life in prison for a fraternity house shooting in Ohio last year that left one man dead and 11 others wounded.
Columbus Jones Jr., 23, was sentenced Thursday after being convicted of murder and other charges in the fatal shooting of Jamail Johnson, a senior at Youngstown State University, court officials said Friday.
Prosecutors said Jones left a frat party at Youngstown State University after an argument on Feb. 6, 2011, then came back with a gun and started shooting, The Vindicator reported. Johnson, 25, was killed while trying to usher a group of partygoers away from the gunfire and out of harm's way, according to police.
A jury had earlier found Jones guilty of murder, improperly discharging a firearm at or into a habitation and 10 counts of felonious assault, according to the court clerk's office.
Johnson's mother, Shirlene Hill, and three other people with connections to Johnson or other shooting victims, tearfully asked the judge Thursday for a lengthy sentence for Jones.
In comments in court before the sentencing, Hill criticized Jones for what she said was a lack of remorse or respect to victims' families during the trial. She told Jones that "your senseless act has cost me countless sleepless nights" and that he robbed her "of a precious treasure that night."
Jones, on the advice of his attorney, Lou DeFabio, had no comment in court, the newspaper reported.
DeFabio said he and Jones were limited in what they could say because the case will be appealed. The defense lawyer did say there was no testimony that his client ever intended to hurt anyone at the party, and he does not believe his client showed any disrespect to the family of the victims during the trial.
DeFabio was out of his office Friday and could not be reached for comment.
Judge John Durkin of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court said that "it was an act of God that more people were not killed that night." Then he sentenced Jones to the consecutive sentences totaling 92 years to life.
Five others charged in connection with the shooting are awaiting trial.

(CNN) -- Sherman Hemsley's body lies in an El Paso, Texas, funeral home refrigerator more than a month after his death while a court decides who gets the actor's remains.
A Philadelphia man claiming to be the "Jeffersons" actor's brother is challenging a will Hemsley signed a month before his death, according to the funeral home handling his arrangements.
"It is disgraceful," Hemsley's longtime partner Flora Enchinton told CNN affiliate KVIA-TV. "It is sad. This was a man with dignity."
The will signed by Hemsley on June 13, 2012, a month after he was diagnosed with cancer, named Enchinton as executor and left his entire estate to her, according to court papers.

Hemsley's embalmed remains are kept in a refrigerator at San Jose Funeral Home in El Paso awaiting a court order allowing burial or with instructions on who should be given the body, funeral home employee Renny Dosier said Thursday.
A spokeswoman for the El Paso County Probate Judge Eduardo Gamboa declined to comment about the case.
Enchinton, who said she lived with Hemsley at his El Paso home for the past decade, told KVIA-TV that the dispute gives her a "very ugly feeling, very desperate feeling that I feel inside."
"The emotional thing is you wake up thinking he's still frozen out there," she said.
Contrary to what Enchinton said, Hemsley's body is "embalmed under refrigeration," not frozen, Dosier said.
The man who claims to be Hemsley brother is asking for custody of his remains and possessions.
"I have never heard of a so-called brother named of Richard Thornton in the 20 years I have known Sherman," Enchinton said. "This is not what Sherman would have wanted."
"Sherman left very worried about me, about me staying alone, what was going to happen to me, being alone if he was gone. That's what worried him the most. I guess maybe he sensed what was going to happen. It just gives me these emotions and feelings (that) all of a sudden there's these people that have never known anything about our life, about who we are, about what we're all about, about what we endured," Enchinton said about the validity of her role in Hemsley's life being questioned.
Hemsley played George Jefferson, a wisecracking owner of a dry cleaning business, on "All in the Family" from 1973 until 1975, when the spinoff "The Jeffersons" began an 11-season run on CBS.
Hemsley also played Deacon Ernest Frye in the sitcom "Amen."

World's richest woman says poor should have less fun, work harder...




Just in case you were beginning to think rich people were deeply misunderstood and that they feel the pain of those who are less fortunate, here's the world's wealthiest woman, Australian mining tycoon Gina Rinehart, with some helpful advice.

"If you're jealous of those with more money, don't just sit there and complain," she said in a magazine piece. "Do something to make more money yourself -- spend less time drinking or smoking and socialising, and more time working."

Yeah, let them eat cake.

Rinehart made her money the old-fashioned way: She inherited it. Her family iron ore prospecting fortune of $30.1 billion makes her Australia's wealthiest person and the richest woman on the planet.

"There is no monopoly on becoming a millionaire," she said by way of encouragement.

"Become one of those people who work hard, invest and build, and at the same time create employment and opportunities for others."

Boom. Almost too easy.

Why are people poor? Rinehart blamed what she described as "socialist," anti-business government policies, and urged Australian officials to lower the minimum wage and cut taxes.

"The millionaires and billionaires who choose to invest in Australia are actually those who most help the poor and our young," she said. "This secret needs to be spread widely."

And now it's out there.

Thank you, rich people. We're not worthy.

Reports: Floyd Mayweather bet $3 million on Michigan...

via @FloydMayweather

Floyd Mayweather will hope Michigan is hailing the victors in Saturday night's mammoth matchup with Alabama.
According to various reports, the boxer wagered more than $2.9 million in nine different Las Vegas sportsbooks on Michigan beating the 14-point spread against favored Alabama on Saturday night.
The heavily-followed Twitter user @incarceratedbob was the first to report the information, which has since been confirmed regurgitated by other sources.
Mayweather was guaranteed $32 million from his May bout with Miguel Cotto. He went to prison days later and ended up serving two months of a three-month sentence for domestic violence.
The 35-year-old boxer has been known to make big wagers in the past, including winning bets on the Clippers in a regular season game ($1.9 million) and against Tim Tebow's Denver Broncos in the AFC divisional playoffs ($1 million).
"I've won a lot of money on games, I've lost a good piece of money on games," Mayweather told MLive.com in April.
He hasn't tweeted about a big bet since his release from prison. According to @incarceratedbob -- sorry, we just like writing it -- that's due to advice from attorneys to lay low.
Vegas books can't be the only ones pleased by the news that Mayweather is out of jail and possibly betting again. Boxing fans should be happy too; Mayweather's money-management skills should ensure he'll have to fight for at least the next decade.

Sheriff: Man stole doctor's ID, saw 500 patients...


> Aug 31 - Sheriff: Man stole doctor's ID, saw 500 patients - Photo posted in BX Daily Bugle - news and headlines | Sign in and leave a comment below!



A man stole a physician's identity and pretended to be a doctor for a year in South Carolina, and now investigators are combing through medical records to see whether he harmed any of the hundreds of patients he treated, authorities said.

Ernest Addo of Austell, Ga., is charged with unlawful practice of medicine and obtaining goods under false pretense, authorities said.

Addo doesn't have a medical license in the U.S. But he assumed a doctor friend's identity, getting a driver's license and presenting the massive amount of paperwork needed to prove he was a doctor. The documents were given to him by the friend in hopes they could open a medical clinic together when the real doctor returned from a yearlong trip to Ghana, Lexington County Sheriff James Metts said.

The real doctor, Arthur Kennedy, said he is embarrassed and devastated by what his friend did.

Addo did have some medical training, and acted enough like a doctor not to raise any serious suspicion beyond one nurse - interviewed after Addo's Aug. 24, arrest - who wondered why he consulted ask.com when she questioned his treatment plan, Metts said.

The motive appears to be greed, the sheriff said. Court documents show Addo has a history of financial trouble.

Records obtained by The Associated Press show in the past 20 years, at least two dozen liens have been filed against Addo for around $200,000, including unpaid rent, credit card bills, student loans and taxes. Addo has declared bankruptcy twice.

After Addo's arrest last week at his Georgia home, officers found fake IDs and other documents, and Metts said it appears Addo might have tried to fake his way through other lucrative careers, too. The sheriff wouldn't specify which ones.

"He seems to be a professional con guy," Metts said.

Authorities have said Addo received more than $10,000 for his services but declined to elaborate. One of the jobs also gave him the use of a Mercedes.

Addo, 48, has been jailed in Cobb County, Ga., since his arrest, and neither the sheriff nor jail officials knew if he had an attorney. Addo is refusing to talk to authorities, and both his home phone and cellphone have been disconnected.

Addo faces more than a decade in prison for his current charges, but he could end up in even more trouble. Metts said his investigators are reviewing the medical records of more than 500 patients Addo saw while at four Columbia-area senior centers and a rehabilitation center owned by Agape Senior Primary Care.

Metts said some of those patients died. He said more charges could follow if any of those deaths were linked to Addo's actions.

Addo was hired as a general practitioner and provided the kind of exams patients would receive during a visit to the family doctor. Authorities said he also wrote prescriptions, including some for himself.

Officials at Agape are doing their own review of the care patients received from Addo. They said he never had sole clinical oversight of any patient.

"We have found no inappropriate diagnosis or plan of treatment. We are convinced that all of our patients are safe and receiving proper care," Agape CEO Scott Middleton said in a statement.

Addo also worked as a contract doctor for the South Carolina Department of Mental Health, filling in for a doctor on medical leave. Officials there said they also are reviewing Addo's care and have not found any serious issues.

Patients treated by Addo could not be located by The Associated Press for comment.

Authorities started investigating Addo after he made a small mistake on a death certificate. South Carolina health officials trying to fix the error contacted the doctor Addo was impersonating. He told them he hadn't practiced medicine for a year in the state because he was teaching at a medical school in Ghana.

Officials have refused to release that doctor's name, but Kennedy confirmed his identity was stolen.

Kennedy said he was betrayed by his friend. Addo also obtained credit cards in Kennedy's name, creating an even bigger mess to clean up, the doctor said Wednesday outside his home in Orangeburg.

He said he didn't want to answer detailed questions about what happened until he spoke to a lawyer.

Both Kennedy and Addo are from Ghana. Kennedy ran unsuccessfully for president of the west African nation in 2008. He had a family practice in Orangeburg and spent plenty of time in his homeland, pushing for public health improvements. The two men resemble each other, and Addo used Kennedy's reputation to help get him the doctor jobs. Agape said in a statement it hired him in part because he came highly recommended.

Both Agape and Jackson & Coker, the Alpharetta, Ga., physician recruitment firm that placed Addo with the Department of Mental Health, have promised to help authorities. Metts said it could take months for investigators to go through all the medical records.

Jackson & Coker also is exploring any legal action it could take against Addo and is shocked he was able to obtain all the documents someone would need to prove he was a doctor in the United States, spokeswoman Susan Meyers said.

"He was hired the same way in several different places," Meyers said. "There were no red flags."

CONFIRMED: NBA Live 13 dropping in October Digital download only and $19.99...




It’s all said and done. After months of wondering what will happen with NBA Live 13 and why it appeared at E3 and was never really seen again, the moment of truth for all of the patient and impatient Live fans.
At the GameStop Expo in San Antonio, Texas, I managed to get down to the bottom of the launch date issue and the specific direction of the franchise. An EA representative informed us at IRB GAMER that NBA Live 13 WILL release this year. The month that is being pushed IS October as a “digital” release for XBOX Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.

It’s been almost 3 years since we’ve released an NBA title,” the EA rep said. The tactic is to get feedback from gamers. However, it’s a bit risky to not run it as the AAA title as thedecision has been made to NOT put the game on disc.
Live will be looking at a price point around $19.99,” equaling out to 1600 Microsoft Points or $20 PlayStation Network card.
Here is my issue with this; with NBA Live switching to a “digital” download, how will this affect graphics we’ve seen at E3? Leading to my next question which remains unanswered, when will we see any game footage? Previous gameplay that appeared was said to be pre-alpha, but if Arcade is the direction of this year’s release, how much more effort will be placed into the final build?

Apple's Request to Ban Samsung Devices Hearing Date is December 6th; Samsung Paying Fine in Coins Rumor is False.... Read more at http://www.latinospost.com/articles/3486/20120830/judge-sets-hearing-date-in-apple-s-request-to-ban-samsung-devices-for-december.htm#pKhTtDKO4fpLFefK.99...


(Photo : REUTERS/Lee Jae-Won) A customer tries the Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone at a store in Seoul August 26, 2012.
With the verdict having been handed down in Apple's favor in the recent Apple vs. Samsung patent infringement trial, U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh has set a date for the hearing over Apple's request to ban eight infringing Samsung products from the U.S. marketplace.
On December 6th of this year Koh will consider the request to ban the following Samsung products: the Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S2 AT&T, Galaxy S2, Galaxy S2 T-Mobile, Galaxy S2 Epic 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Droid Charge and Galaxy Prevail.
Like Us on Facebook
At this time, Samsung will have the opportunity to request the jury's verdict be thrown out or, failing that, to file an appeal over the decision. Samsung has already said that it will appeal this matter up to the level of the Supreme Court if that's what it takes until the company feels that it receives a fair ruling.
Regarding the June 26th sales ban of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, Samsung is asking that it be lifted immediately as the jury found that it did not infringe upon any Apple patents. Koh has set a hearing date for September 20th to consider the request.
In other Apple-Samsung news, followers of the trial went bananas over rumors circulating the Internet that Samsung was going to attempt to pay the $1.05 billion in fines to Apple that the jury had mandated with trucks full of nickels.
The news, which was published in PaperBlog - amongst other outlets - told readers "Samsung tried to pay Apple its $1 billion fine by sending more than 30 trucks to Apple's headquarters loaded with 5-cent coins. Apple security was stunned. Apple chief executive Tim Cook then got a call from Samsung who told him this was how they were paying the billion-dollar fine." This bit of gossip has since been confirmed as a falsehood and the rumor has been put to rest.

Harlem great-grandmother indicted for facilitating million-dollar drug ring out of her $350,000 co-op...

Doris Smith, 72, walks with a cane, yet provided solid assistance to her son-in-law as he ran a million-dollar-a-year drug ring from her Harlem apartment. The grandmother of 7 and great-granmother of one confessed Wednesday to allowing her daughter’s husband, Lamont Moultrie, 42, to stash the drugs that fueled his business in the co-op where the family lived.
Smith’s apartment provided shelter for her daughter Nicole McNair Moultrie, 41, Lamont, and the couple’s 11-year-old son. Living adjacent to an empty unit Smith accessed as president of the co-op board, the great-grandmother repurposed the adjoining space plus the dwelling’s basement to warehouse the PCP, crack and heroine distributed by the alleged drug kingpin’s gang.
“The upstairs apartment served as the heart of the PCP trade,” reports New York’s Daily News, “with gang underlings dipping spearmint leaves into 5-gallon cans of the liquid drug.” Moultrie’s gang was so proficient, they came to be known on Harlem streets as the Kings of Dust.
Granny Smith — known to those in the know as “Mama Dot” — was the matriarch of the operation. In addition to providing a home base of operations, wiretap evidence shows that Smith warned Lamont about police investigators and instructed him on how to evade them when officers entered the building.
“I’ve listened to the wiretaps,” Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Edward McLaughlin commented about her involvement. “She knew what was going on, and tried to deflect the police.”
Following a 15-month investigation, 35 suspects were taken into custody in January. In addition to Lamont and Nicole McNair Moultrie, Bernard Moultrie, Lamont’s 39-year-old younger brother, was also arrested. The two siblings were charged as drug gang chiefs, and will be tried under New York state’s Drug Kingpin statute.
Mama Dot faces a milder fate. After being held in custody since February, Smith pled guilty yesterday to criminal possession of a controlled substance and conspiracy to distribute drugs. Having traded the three-bedroom apartment she lived in for 30 years for a prison cell, she is expected to be sentenced to no less than five years in October.
Smith acquired her place at 101 W. 115th St. for just $250 in 2004 through a program that promotes home ownership for the poor. Neighbors described the gangster gran as a strong community presence, who flaunted her ill-begotten riches and her role in creating them.
She also spread her wealth. The elderly woman drove a Lamborghini, yet gave Christmas gifts to local youth.
“She’d sit on the steps and give the kids presents — dolls, cars, toys,” one neighbor noted. “My heart hurts for her.”

Samsung pays Apple $1 Billion sending 30 trucks full of 5 cent coins....

This morning more than 30 trucks filled with 5-cent coins arrived at Apple’s headquarters in California. Initially, the security company that protects the facility said the trucks were in the wrong place, but minutes later, Tim Cook (Apple CEO) received a call from Samsung CEO explaining that they will pay $1 billion dollars for the fine recently ruled against the South Korean company in this way.
samsung pays apple $1 billion sending 30 trucks full of 5 cents coins
The funny part is that the signed document does not specify a single payment method, so Samsung is entitled to send the creators of the iPhone their billion dollars in the way they deem best.
This dirty but genius geek troll play is a new headache to Apple executives as they will need to put in long hours counting all that money, to check if it is all there and to try to deposit it crossing fingers to hope a bank will accept all the coins.
Lee Kun-hee, Chairman of Samsung Electronics, told the media that his company is not going to be intimidated by a group of “geeks with style” and that if they want to play dirty, they also know how to do it.
You can use your coins to buy refreshments at the little machine for life or melt the coins to make computers, that’s not my problem, I already paid them and fulfilled the law.
A total of 20 billion coins, delivery hope to finish this week.
Let’s see how Apple will respond to this.

Mavado To Drop New Collaboration With Popcaan, Tommy Lee & Snoop Lion...

 
According to A close source to the Gullyside deejay told them that there could be some new unity between Popcaan, Tommy Lee and Mavado.“The link was made through a third party and a popular producer in Jamaica,” the source said. “Mavado, Popcaan and Tommy Lee are the hottest artists in dancehall right now and we need unity in the industry. You never know you might just see a collab from Mavado and Kartel in the future.”The source also revealed that Mavado will appear on a Snoop Lion track that also features Popcaan.“Snoop and Popcaan did a track in February for his reggae album Reincarnation and Vado did some voicing that may be on the track,” the source said.While declining to divulge much information, the source said Mavado and Tommy Lee may do some work together on an upcoming new Riddim.

After breaking away from Portmore Empire earlier this year, Popcaan released a lengthy statement proclaiming his interest in working with some unlikely stars in dancehall, including Bounty Killer, Mavado, Beenie Man and more.Last week Vybz Kartel allegedly released an angry statement through his protege Gaza Slim labeling Popcaan and Tommy Lee as “opportunist” and “disloyal” individuals. It is not clear if that statement has any connection to this piece of news. However, Mavado working with Tommy Lee and Popcaan can only prove beneficial to dancehall.

Usain Bolt, Yohan Blake set marks...


ZURICH -- Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake have set Weltklasse meet records despite rain and cold wind at the Diamond League event on Thursday.
Bolt playfully shivered for the television cameras at the start of the 200 meters then timed 19.66 seconds in the fastest half-lap race seen in Zurich.
Earlier in the 100, Bolt's Jamaican teammate Blake blazed to a dominating victory in 9.76. Bolt did not run the 100. Tyson Gay of the United States was disqualified for a false start.
There was a major surprise in the 800 when Olympic champion David Rudisha lost to Mohammed Aman of Ethiopia. Rudisha was targeting the world record he set in London, but said he was unsettled by the poor weather.

In case you were wondering what gummy candies are made of ???

Gummies or jelly sweets are a broad, general type of Gelatin-based, chewy candy.

Gelatin is a translucent, colorless, odorless, and nearly tasteless substance that is made by prolonged boiling of skin, cartilage and bones from animals. It's made primarily from the stuff meat industries have left over - we're talking about pork skins and cattle bones. Yummy !!!

It's the philosophy of using the whole animal.

If this is news to you, it may shed new light on your Great Aunt's Jell-O mold. And if you love eating chewy candy, you may think twice before chowing down on those gummy worms

Max B murder charge upheld...

  

HACKENSACK — An appeals court has upheld the murder conviction and 75-year sentence given to Harlem rapper "Max B" for his role in a deadly 2006 robbery at a Fort Lee hotel.

The rapper, whose real name is Charly Wingate, had argued that the Bergen County Superior Court judge who tried his case had erred by not granting a request to separate it from that of his accomplice, Kelvin Leerdam.

Wingate, now 34, was convicted in 2009 after a jury found that he had dispatched Leerdam, his stepbrother, and his girlfriend Gina Conway to a Holiday Inn on Route 4 to rob two men, Allan Plowden and David Taylor.

During the attempted robbery, Leerdam shot Taylor, killing him.

In his appeal, Wingate also claimed that the jury had been improperly instructed, imposed an excessive sentence and "erroneously denied his motion for a judgment of acquittal."

In the same ruling, the court denied an appeal fired by Leerdam, who received a sentence of life plus 35 years for the murder.

Chris Lighty, shown here with Sean "Diddy" Combs, was found dead outside his Bronx apartment Thursday.

Hip-hop mogul Chris Lighty died Thursday morning after he shot himself after an argument with his estranged wife at his Bronx apartment, sources told the Daily News.
Lighty, 44 — a longtime manager of 50 Cent, Diddy, Ja Rule and Mariah Carey — stepped outside his South Riverdale apartment about 11:30 a.m., after a spat with his wife, Veronica, police sources said.
Suddenly, a gun shot was heard and Lighty was found lying faceup with a 9-mm. pistol next to his body, sources said.
Law enforcement sources said Lighty — whose wife filed for divorce last year — may have been dealing with financial struggles, including owing about $5 million to the IRS.
Lighty, founder of Violator Management, merged with another talent company to form Primary Violator around the time of his divorce.
Musicians began Tweeting about Lighty soon after news of his death spread.
“R.I.P CHRIS LIGHTY THE MAN THAT SAVED MY LIFE!!!” Bronx rapper Fat Joe posted on Twitter. “I Would Be Nothing Without YOU!!! My Kids Appreciate YOU God Bless Chris Lighty.”

Beats Electronics, the audio products company founded by Hip-Hop producer Dr. Dre and Interscope-Geffen-A&M boss Jimmy Iovine, has cornered the market with their high-end Beats By Dre headphones and other audio equipment. According to a report from tech site Boy Genius Report (BGR), it appears that the company is looking to make a splash in the increasingly crowded smartphone and television markets in what is billed as an effort to take on technology giant Apple.

Electronics manufacturer HTC made an initial investment into the Beats line, hoping to tap into the company's popularity and offer other collaborative products. Although HTC has already sold back half its ownership stake to Dre, Iovine and the Universal Music Group, they are part of a creative team that will develop a smartphone for the brand. While there is no name yet for the device or specs, Beats intends to introduce a service similar to iTunes nicknamed “Daisy” and plans to roll out a subscription-based music streaming service in the same vein as Spotify and other such apps.

Choosing not to rest on its laurels, the Beats team is also unveiling a “TV With Beats” via a partnership with manufacturer Samsung. BGR reports that the Beats TV will perform much like Apple TV and hopes that the new smartphone device will integrate seamlessly with the new television sets. This set up nearly mirrors Apple's set up with its iPhone and how it plays well with other products the company produces.

Is there room for another smartphone? Can the Beats line compete with the big boys in the ultra-competitive tech world? If the success of the Beats By Dre headphone line is any indication, it appears that a fight for technological supremacy may be brewing soon.

As of now, there is no timeline for the release of the Beats phone.





Conclusion if true? fu-king forget about Detox. With the amount of idiots who update phones every few months if they make a good phone that catches on like his headphones he will be topping hip hops rich list for a while

Beanie Sigel To Begin Serving Prison Sentence Early Due To Arrest...

It's looks like Beanie Sigel will be heading to jail earlier than expected after today's arrest.

Fans were shocked when news broke that Beanie Sigel - already preparing to serve a two-year sentence for tax evasion - was arrested on drug charges earlier today. Now, in an exclusive from XXL, it looks like the Philadelphia emcee will begin serving his sentence earlier than anticipated.

The Broad Street Bully was supposed to begin serving his two-year bid on September 12, but now, after the recent arrest, authorities took him into custody today instead. Although the rapper's lawyer Fortunato N. Perri did not indicate whether his client would serve any extra time for the arrest, he did say that he needs to review the specific nature of the arrest before moving forward with any kind of legal action.

“At this point, the Federal authorities will take him into custody and he’ll begin serving the sentence that he was going to start on September 12 anyway,” said Beans' lawyer. “He had bail set on the new charges, but the Federal authorities have issued a detainer—a warrant, essentially—that will transfer him to Federal custody and he’ll start serving his sentence...we’re still reviewing the allegations and the circumstances of the arrest. I don’t don’t know a whole lot about the specifics at this point. We’re still reviewing specifics.”


As mentioned earlier, Sigel was arrested for possession of a bottle of codeine with the label scratched off and a bag prescription pills. A gun was also found the center dashboard of the vehicle in which Sigel had been riding.
