It looks like this reality TV marriage will be over before it ever really started. The relationship seemed to be forced in the first place, with Kim thirsty to find a man to settle down with. Reggie Bush and Miles Austin already fell victim to this reality TV superstars fame. It only took 72 days for Kris Humphries to become the next victim. Reports say that the two will officially become single again today(Halloween) with Kim stating, "irreconcilable differences " as reason for separation. Kardashian and Humphries relationship/wedding was all another ploy to boost ratings for the television show. Most viewers will tell you that their relationship did not look to be authentic and it was all a game.

The King is home and it's only fitting that he joined Jay-Z and Kanye on the remix to Niggas In Paris... Check out the track. This Track Contains Explicit Lyrics!!!
The project was created by photographer/filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, along with Elvis Mitchell, a public radio host and former New York Times film critic, which also included a 2008 HBO film. The two decided that these individuals were to represent the African American people in entertainment, politics, sports and business in the 20th century.
"The Black List Volume 1" premiered at Sundance Film Festival in 2008 and then in August of that year on HBO. "The Black List Volume 2" came in 2009 followed by "The Black List Volume 3" in 2010. While there is a smaller display in New York, the Smithsonian exhibit is the first to feature all 50 portraits.

The lawsuits states that in October 2009, Bishop Long introduced Ephren Taylor Jr. to the congregation as a minister/entrepreneur representing City Capital Corp. Taylor was there to speak at the week-long seminar the church was having called the "Wealth Tour Live." Members stated that Bishop vouched on Taylor's behalf, as Taylor urged members to make investments with him and his business, for he was guaranteeing a good return on their money. They said Taylor backed his plan up by saying that his investments findings were not related to the stock market so the members did not have to worry.
Well we all know how this story ends, apparently Taylor was not licensed to sell investments and his Company City Capital Corp had no financial means to pay out any returns. Plaintiff Lillian Wells who has been a member of the church for over 20 years said that after Bishop Long supported Taylor she invested $122,000 of her retirement savings. Since then Wells has lost her job and she is facing foreclosure on her home. In defense Taylor has stated to the press “Don’t assume that I am just another greedy businessman, I am taking action to make things right.” Innocent till proven guilty right?? Check out the video below as Bishop Eddie Long takes his position as to say he had no involvement. Stay tuned to see how this "pays" out.

Her experiences in this neighborhood led her to write her first song when she was 16 titled "Hometown Glory." While she studied artists like Mary J Blige and Aaliyah, It was Pink's performance of 'Missundazstood" at the Brixton Academy that really fueled her energy towards professional singing.

Most kids from my generation (early 1980's) probably said this to their parents before, "I'm bored." Most parents responses back then, would be to "use your imagination." Using your imagination is not a tool utilized anymore by most of today's youth. Children nowadays have many different avenues to keep themselves entertained, without being physically active or challenged mentally. Video games, internet usage and listening to music are today's preferred entertainment choices for youth in our society. Working with and around children everyday I see several electronic devices being used within a school setting. Mp3 players and mobile phone usage is at a all time high within classrooms. If a child has access to the internet, they most likely are looking to gain access to their favorite video or social media site. The attention to lessons and assignments are lacking as students focus are else where. Most households today have at least one computer and video game device. I ask kids everyday what they do when they go home and their response is always the same. "I watched TV," "I played my game," or my favorite... "I was on the internet" (all before going to bed). Nowadays, parents have to beg their kids to go outside. That wasn't the case 10-15 years ago. With electronics holding kids hostage within the household, the days of going outside and having fun are over. No more: "hide and seek,"... no more "freeze tag"... and no more "catch a girl-freak a girl"... lol just kidding but you get my point. Parents must monitor the time spent on electronic devices and preserve a lost past time... Send your kids back outside!!!
Kim will be starring as Ava the co-worker of marriage counselor Judith (Jurnee Smollett) who seems to have problems of her own as her own marriage is on the rocks. Ava serves as a confiding friend who doesn't mind going out her way to help the struggling Judith.
The critics probably cant wait for this one being that Kim has not had much Hollywood experience. Judging by her character and what you saw from her reality show, do you believe she can eventually become a leading role actress??

To ensure quality content, McDonald's has partnered with BBC America and a California ABC news affiliate for the launch.
This project could be viewed as a creative attempt to increase advertising profits. With more than 33,000 restaurants in over 100 countries, they definitely have the platform to feed all their select ads to their growing consumer base. This new installation should only add to the comfortable homely feel that Micky Ds has been desperately trying to produce for some years now. They already have installed Wi-Fi in many of the stores, and the popular children's PlayPlace seems to always be in the renovation plans.
Soo how does this sound to you? Sounds like McDonald's slowly but surely wants to distant themselves from the fast food restaurant label. They are indeed planning to evolve into a jazzy stop and go lounge, a place that the family can spend a good amount of time.
Soulja Boy was busted early Tuesday morning for possession of marijuana during a routine traffic stop in Atlanta. At the time of the incident DeAndre Cortez Way (Soulja Boy) was said to be in possession of drugs, guns and $70,000 in cash. Soulja Boy and 4 other men were riding in a Escalade at the time they were stopped. Everyone in the car was arrested and taken to Carroll County Jail in Georgia. Soulja Boy spent the night in jail and was released the next day. After being released the young rapper expressed his innocence and his gratitude to his fans. Was this all a publicity stunt for the a guy who is scheduled to release a new movie and album soon???
During the late 1960s Curtis began to voice his support to black pride and racial inequality through his music. His big hit during this time titled "Were a Winner" quickly gained attention in the black community and served as a black pride anthem for the activists and supporters at that time. "Keep On Pushing" and "People Get Ready" were also popular songs during the civil right movement, as they were the songs of choice during all the rallies and marches.
In 1970 Curtis left the Impressions to start his solo career, he founded the independent record label Curtom Records. It was through this label Curtis would produce the bulk of his work, also producing for other artists on the label as well. He reached his commercial pinnacle when he dropped his famous album Super Fly the soundtrack to the classic Black Film starring Ron Oneal. His top singles "Freddie's Dead" and "Superfly" each sold a million copies. His distinctive falsetto tone and crafty guitar play kept his listeners captivated as they hung to every note. Mayfield received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1995, and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on March 15, 1999.
He would die on December 26, 1999 at the North Fulton Regional Hospital in Roswell, Georgia.
Curtis was truly more than a musician, he shared the struggle of all minorities fighting for justice in America in the 60s and 70s. We Wish You Were Still Here...

PA's(Chester) own, Jahlil Beats recently signed a deal with Roc Nation as a producer. Jahlil Beats is known for working with Philly's own Meek Mill on most of his projects. Some will tell you Jahlil is responsible for Meek signing a record deal with Rick Ross's MMG label after producing several beats for the rising artist. Jahlil explained in a recent XXL article that, there was a bidding war between six record labels for his services. The producer decided to sign with Roc Nation because he felt like they were a established brand and they allowed him creative control over his own projects. Jahlil Beats has worked with several artist along the way and stated this in his recent XXL piece...
I did like 90% of Jim Jones’s Vampire Life album,” he says. “I did like 90% of Bow Wow’s Underrated album. I’m working on Fab’s album. I’m working on stuff with Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Willow, Jaden Smith. I got like four joints on Red Café’s album that’s dropping in February. I’m working with Soulja Boy, Tyga. I’m working with so many cats. Meek got so many tracks from me. That’s a given. I’m working on my own stuff, too. It’s a mixtape. I’m spitting.We expect to hear many more Beats from Jahlil, as he is now the go to producer in the "game."
Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith are now minority owners of the Philadelphia 76ers basketball team. Will Smith will play the same role for the Sixers that Jay-Z does for the soon to be Brooklyn Nets. This is a major development as Will Smith has strong Philly ties, being raised here. News broke today about the Smith's being partners with the ownership group lead by multi-billionaire Joshua Harris. There was a press conference held this morning to introduce the new ownership group, but the smith's were not present. The NBA board of governors recently approved the sale of the team from Comcast Spectorcor to the new owners. The new ownership has already decided to let current GM Ed Stefanski find new employment elsewhere as he is no longer apart of the plans moving forward with the team. The new CEO of the Sixers Adam Aron announced that 9,000 seats at the Wells Fargo Center, ticket prices will be reduced by more than 50%... Now this is what I call change.

Soo in this present time with all the financial and emotional turmoil that is occurring, I think its safe to say that consistent positive thinking can be viewed as a therapeutic remedy. Some people have figured this out already producing a movie titled "The Secret." The Secret has been referred to as the greatest power in the universe, a feeling controlled by the greatest thinkers and inventors of this world. This film was basically a documentary on the effect of optimistic thinking, in it you have a series of testimonies from individuals who have adopted this way of thinking and they state the direct affect of their beliefs. The concept is derived from the phrase, "The Law of Attraction" which is a metaphysical belief that positive thinking attracts positive results and vice vera respectively. The film suggests that there has been a strong tendency by those in positions of power to keep this central principle hidden from the public. It is our pleasure to bring this concept to you, hoping you can benefit.
Many authors in the business sector have included this belief system in their books. Napoleon Hill makes this topic an important chapter in his book "Think and Grow Rich." In the book he challenges his readers to alter their way of thinking if they wish to obtain the riches they desire. Robert Kiosaki author of the best seller "Rich Dad Poor Dad" offers the same advice. At one of his seminars, he stated "When one says to himself I can not afford an object, the brain immediately shuts down. However; When one says how can I afford the object, the brains(subconscious) immediately goes to work, to create a plan to bring about one's thoughts into existence."
The Secret teaches us that we create our lives, with every thought every minute of every day. It is also written in the bible "If man thinketh, then so he is.." So Really the world is yours lol
Check out the brief video below to get a better understanding of the concept...

As for dedication, Phoenix Jones proudly provided this statement "I will continue to patrol with my team, probably tonight. In addition to being Phoenix Jones, I am also Ben Fodor, father and brother. I am just like everybody else. The only difference is that I try to stop crime in my neighborhood and everywhere else."
Jones also claims he's the leader of the Rain City Superhero Movement, which has performed late-night patrols in Seattle since last year.
Check out the video below as you get a sneak view of Phoenix Jones in action. He doesn't appear to use any of his super powers as you will see a hostile woman beating him in the head with her shoe. To add to the comedy Phoenix has his own camera crew following him around to capture his heroics.
I know you just can't wait to see who's the evil villain, who is responsible masterminding most of the crime in the city...Stay Tuned lol
Septa officials are working with city procescutors to limit fake injury claims on or around SEPTA vehicles. Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams and SEPTA general manager Joseph Casey said Thursday that they are utilizing surveillance cameras on Septa vehicles to stop riders from recieving large settlemets for injuries that are not real. During the press conference a video displayed a man running to get on a Septa bus that was involved in a accident, so he could claim a back injury. Another video displayed a women and her six year old duughter faking injuries after the bus they were on was in a minor accident.
SEPTA pays out about $40 million a year in accident claims,with payouts have rising by more than 10 percent in the past two years, according to Casey. So for those folks that fake injuries on Septa transportation, your chances of winning your case will be slim.

If you are a Blackberry owner, you're probably wondering why you couldn't receive any messages
or emails today... The reason being Blackberry suffered its biggest outage in years because of a failed infrastructure. Blackberry users across the world felt the impact from this outage as they could not utilize internet or messaging on their devices. Africa, Asia and Europe have encountered the issues as well, with most of their Blackberry's failing over the last 72 hrs. This is a bad time for RIM (Blackberry Manufacture) to encounter such difficulty with their system, while Apple is set to release its newest IPhone 4S. With the competition increasing rapidly Blackberry may be on its way out.
Jon B and 2 Pac got together to make this throwback for the ladies... "Are You Still Down" was featured on Jon B's sophomore album "Cool Relax," released in the fall of 1997.

Check out the videos... Classic!!! lol

The 4time NBA Champion has now decided to put the basketball down for good, now he will look to entertain by telling you his side of the story. In the book Shaq discusses his remarkable journey, including his candid thoughts on teammates and coaches like Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade, LeBron James, Phil Jackson, and Pat Riley. From growing up in difficult circumstances and getting cut from his high school basketball team to his larger-than-life basketball career. Shaq decided to sit down with long time sportswriter author Jackie Macmullan and relive some magic. Shaq stated in an interview “She knew things that I’d forgotten about, We were sitting at the house talking; we meet twice a week for three hours. She asks me questions, and I ‘ve got to dig in my old Shaq-o-dex. I’m like, ‘That’s 13 years ago.’ It should be a very exciting book — no holds barred. ‘Tell-all’ wouldn’t be the correct term. ‘Truthful’ would be the better term.”
The book is scheduled to be released on November 15th 2011.

Do you remember back on October 16th 1995 when the Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan, organized a march in Washington D.C. calling over 1 million black men to discuss their issues of abandonment in the household and their role in the inner city community? Of course you do, for that day received heavy attention from the media being that the numbers were great. Individuals from all walks of life and creeds were present to participate in history. The Day of Atonement ignited many men to prosper in their own lives and to offer support to whatever each person was dealing with.
This year the event will be held at the in Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania Convention center. The schedule will run from the weekend of OCT. 7-9. Oct. 7-8 will feature various workshops and community building activities that prepare the followers for the anticipated conference held by the Minister Louis Farrakhan at 2pm on Oct. 9th. The Minister Ishmael R. Muhammad, an assistant to Farrakhan stated that "It was Philadelphia that brought over 150,000 black men to the march 16 years ago, this is a historical city, and it is just fitting that so much has come out of Philadelphia as it relates to the success of the march." Farrakhan had visited Philadelphia before the march to meet with union leaders, Black elected officials, Black clergy and many of the civic and grass roots leaders, that helped get the large number to the march. In a time of distress and turmoil maybe a unified event could spark some positive conclusions and plans that may help our community.
It is not our intent to promote any rituals or religion, we are simply passing the news of a historical event that once made history and shall forever be remembered.
Check out the videos below to get ya self in a positive uplifting mood. Even Lil Wayne wanted to join the party (lol).
Tickets are $20 and available at various locations throughout the city. For more information, call 215-228-6044 or visit http://www.noi.org/.
Rumor has it that Eddie Murphy is in talks with Saturday Night Live on the possibility of a "cameo" return to the show. The cameo could be made as early as today as Ben Stiller is set to host tonight's episode. Stiller and Murphy both are starring in the new release movie Tower Heist (not yet in theaters.) Murphy starred in the long running sketch comedy show during the early 1980's. Murphy is know for his famous SNL characters: Buckwheat, Gumby, Mr. Robinson, and James Brown. Murphy left SNL after four seasons and began a lucrative movie career. Murphy has only hosted SNL once since his departure from the show in 1984. It has been speculated over the years of Murphy having a falling out with producers, after a David Spade skit mocked the veteran comedians career. Murphy even passed on a return for the shows 25th anniversary party in 1999. If and when Murphy makes his return to SNL, it will be, and have been a long time coming.
"I just remember Randall being very elusive and being able to make plays that a lot of QBs at the time couldn’t make, with his legs,” Vick said. “And you know, it kind of changed the dynamics of the game and what he could do for his football team. So, you know, I tried to emulate that and just tried to keep plays alive with my legs."While Vick will be focused on a win over the Bills Sunday, Cunningham will be hoping to hold the record for another week.
