A Holy Terror?!

As I was looking over the internet news I just so happen to come across this story that left me just amazed and yet proud of these passengers that are fighting for their and others rights to live.

A Nigerian man who said he was an agent for al-Qaida tried to blow up Northwest Airlines Flight 253,  on Friday 12-25-09,  as it was preparing to land in Detroit.

FULL STORY HERE

The travelers on the flight heard what sounded like firecrackers, saw and smelled smoke attacked and subdued the man.  A passenger sitting opposite the man climbed over people, went across the aisle and tried to restrain the man.

This is something else isn’t it? In my mind I was just picturing all this commotion going on and some travelers being Johnny on the spot acting quickly to get this man apprehended.  Could you imagine the roars and cheers of excitement as they pinned him down. What a rush!

Talk about citizens arrest! I am glad to see no one was hurt in this yet another failed attempt to protect our airways. The mad bomber did have burns on his legs where the bomb was attached and didn’t denoate correctly.

Of course investigations are being performed and there is little that they are saying but I am sure as the days go on we will find out more.

Authorities in London and the United States are investigating  if this has any ties to the United Kingdom  incident.  Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab who has been identified in that incident  per one law enforcement official,  said Mutallab  claimed to have been instructed by al-Qaida to detonate the plane over U.S. soil, but other law enforcement officials cautioned that such claims could not be verified immediately, and said the man may have been acting independently. Mutallab my have been inspired but not specifically trained or ordered by terror groups.

Does this have anything to do with the similar bomb attack by Richard Reed, a British citizen, 8 years ago when he tried to bomb an airplane over US soil he had ties to al-Qaida.

I don’t know about that however here is my concern.

One…this Nigerian man had been on the terrorist watch list but there was not sufficient enough reason to place him on the no fly list.  OMG! This is ridiculous! When a person is a negative list of such don’t you think they should be revoked and stripped of all things! Maybe it’s just me but with the issues we have had repeately over the years with plane bombing why are we letting know al-Qaida or supposedly al-Qaida affilates fly on planes? This just infuriates me to no end and burns (excuse the pun) my butt to a crisp.

Hooray for the passenger that subdued the man who obviously has a decreased mental capacity for life even his own.

Onward O-o-o-o-o Opray Winfrey #own

The new motto of “Live your Best Life,” is speaking for Oprah.  I’ve been expecting this for sometime now quite frankly. That Oprah Winfrey is leaving the talk show venue. She plans on exciting Sept 2011 media reports say. She has accomplished so much with her show that she probably is ready for a new challenge to dig her teeth into.

I say go for it.  Great move, quit  smart while you are ahead. I know that Oprah is not finished  she has more to give of  herself than we know.  I did notice that there was a sense of not being complete over the past few years with her and the show. Revamping, tweaking and brainstorming new ideas  etc . I can understand that this is what is expected of anything in life but there was a bit of a void there.  Perhaps she read, “The Dip” by Seth Godin knowing when to quit.

Oprah WinfreyIn a sense of being able to grow and expand in different ways and move on to something far more fulfilling and challenging for her. Besides a 50/50 split aint’ nothing to sneeze at with Discovery Communications you know the  Discovery Channel.  I am sure their ratings, stock and twitter followers for both Discovery communication venues will increase, LOL!

I have admired her tenacity  and trailblazing in this arena,  she has carved a target market all her own. Believe me her followers will go right with her.

Seth Godin

What a great and challenging match.  I love the Discovery Channel and I am sure that what she plans to do with her new cable channel company O.W.N (Oprah Winfrey Network) will be informative and entertainment television.  It seems that she will be slotted into the already running Discovery Health Channel this should prove to be interesting with a national obesity and health care reform issue on the slot. I just wonder if  President Obama, a-a-  no no way oh just wishful thinking, huh!

From the OWN website:

  • Launching in 2010
  • Debuting in more than 70 million homes on what is currently Discovery Health
  • Targeting adults 18-49
  • Programming will include a mix of nonfiction, short-form programming, movies, documentaries and acquisitions
  • OWN is a joint venture between Oprah Winfrey and Discovery Communications
  • OWN is headquartered in Los Angeles, CA

As a profession in her field,  I say she is not done yet don’t count her out. She is  just moving over a bit then again we never know now do we?

Congrats Oprah  I will be watching sometime.

Splish, Splash, Splosh I was taking a bath!

Splish,  Splash,  Splosh I was taking a bath! Do you remember that song, if not take a listen.

One of my favorites all of the CSI series continues to astound me. CSI NY, a crime drama inspired by the drama series, “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” is TV series about forensic investigators who use high-tech science to follow the evidence and solve crimes in the Big Apple.

Yesterday, November 4th, 2009, aired a show that showcased the food fetish of Sploshing or WAM (Wet and Messy).

Did your parents ever tell you don’t play with your food?

Well this brings new meaning to that as the participants enjoy sexual and sensual arousal via the application of food i.e.  (whip cream, chocolate syrup, juice, strawberries, or water based food products) whatever makes you feel good on your body with or without clothes.

We all know that food can be very powerful when it comes to evoking pleasure especially chocolate.  It targets the pleasure zones in the brain and we want more. It amazes me with world hunger and poverty growing everyday this is what some choose to do with food.

Something to think about huh? Take a look below.

This is IT! Michael Jackson

I am Aware of Triple Negative Breast Cancer

This October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Having lost a relative to this type of cancer and well before more advanced medical technologies where available back in the 70’s, I have learned so much about cancer.

It’s ironic that my mother is a retired chemotherapy R.N. and that cancer is prevalent in our family. Today I learned more about Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) mostly this condition is more prevalent amount African American women and more so in younger African American women.

I have always been an advocate for the research for the cure of Breast Cancer. Knowing that there are varies sub-cancer under the Breast Cancer umbrella it just brings to mind so many that are continuously fighting for the cure.

Breast Cancer Charity Auction Proceeds to Susan G. Komen

My condolences for those that are going through this and those that have lost loved ones to Breast Cancer. This is not only a month to reflect get involved with the fight but I urge you to not only just think during October but throughout the year. Those with cancer think about it everyday,  to help save lives.
