Queen Latifah, Life, and Love: Queen Latifah's Mother Rita Owens Dies From Chronic Heart Condition@balleralert mao Queen Latifah’s Mother Rita Owens Dies From Chronic Heart Condition - blogged by @worldwidekeege ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Dana Owens a.k.a the great Queen Latifah, announced Wednesday that her mother, Rita Owens, has passed away from a severe heart condition that has been ailing her for more than a decade. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "It is with a heavy heart that I share the news, my mother, Rita Owens passed away today... Anyone that has ever met her knows what a bright light she was on this earth. She was gentle, but strong, sweet, but sassy, worldly but pragmatic, a woman of great faith and certainly the love of my life.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Heart failure is a chronic progressive condition where the heart is unable to pump blood efficiently through the body. Rita Owens was on medication, had a defibrillator implanted in her chest to prevent heart attacks, and a strict diet of low salts and fats with lots of vegetables. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ”She had struggled with a heart condition for many years and her battle is now over... I am heartbroken but know she is at peace. Thank you for your kindness, support and respect for our privacy at this time. Much Love, Dana Owens (aka Queen Latif‎ah), forever Rita Owens’ daughter.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Latifah mentioned to PEOPLE in a previous interview in 2015 that when she was not in California, she was at her mother’s New Jersey home helping with caregiving duties. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She broke the news to PEOPLE about her mother’s death and impact on her life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I watched her come through so many things, ups and downs, hospitalizations – I mean really being in the ICU for that matter – you know, going through tough times and watching her come back and bounce back and still maintain this sense of humor, and love and drive and will... I just love her so much more, I respect her so much more. She really just gives me hope for life and the world.” Latifah said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ R.I.P. the great Rita Owens.

Facebook, Head, and Hillary Clinton: U.S. NEWs PHARMA BRO Mar 09 Martin Shkreli, aka 'Pharma Bro', sentenced to 7 years in prison for federal fraud charges. Martin Shkreli, also known as “Pharma Bro,” was sentenced to seven years in prison for federal fraud charges related to two hedge funds he ran and his former company, Retrophin. Shkreli became infamous for raising the price of the drug Daraprim by more than 5,000 percent while running another of his companies, Turing Pharmaceuticals, but was charged for unrelated crimes. Along with his 7-year conviction, Shkreli has been ordered to forfeit nearly $7.4 million, his ownership of a one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album, and a Picasso. This is far from the 12-18 months his defense team was arguing for, and includes a three-year probation period and an additional $75,000 fine. ___ Shkreli was convicted on three of eight counts of fraud for to lying to investors, but his behavior out of the courtroom also contributed to the sentencing. After his initial proceedings back in August, Shkreli offered up to $5,000 to any of his online followers who could pluck a hair from Hillary Clinton’s head. Additionally, he wrote on Facebook that if he were to be acquitted, he would pursue sexual relations with a particular female journalist. These two instances caused the judge to revoke his bail, sending him to the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn where he’s been residing ever since. ___ Photo: Amr Alfiky-Reuters

Boner, Cars, and Children: shaelit "Cars kill more people than guns! What're you gonna do, regulate cars next?" You idiot. You moron. You utter buffoon Cars ARE regulated The permit test. The permit. The practice year. The regulations on how many hours you have to drive and at what hours and with whom. The driving test. The license. The requirements regarding insurance. License renewals. Road laws. Highway laws. Speed limits. Seatbelt laws. Carseat laws. Laws against drinking and driving and other forms of intoxication. Red lights. Not passing in intersections. Right of way WHO can drive and WHEN and HOW and WHERE are all regulated, because yes, a car in the wrong hands can kill a person. Just like a gun. Oh but wait, there's more! I, as a licensed driver, can't drive anything I want. I can't drivea motorcycle. I can't drive a speedboat. You know what else I can't drive? One of these. To drive a semi-truck, I would need a Commercial Driver's License or CDL There are age limits involved, as well as required hours of training and study. There's a written test and a driving test. There are also medical requirements. And even if I passed all that, you know what I STILL couldn't drive? One of these To drive a semi loaded with hazardous materials, you would have to get a federal H endorsement added to your CDL. And to get that, you have to jump through even MORE hoops, including another written test and a background check. So yeah, guns should be better regulated. Any Joe Blow shouldn't be able to stagger down to a gun show and get himself a sweet piece without some oversight. And ESPECIALLY no one should be getting their hands on a semi-automatic assault rifle like an AR-15, aka the Hazardous Semi Truck of guns. There are professional reasons that a person might need clearance to handle and own such a weapon, but not a civilian. Not an unscreened rando off the street. Try not to be such an utter wanker that you place the mere potential of a power- boner over the lives of actual children like those killed in Parkland, Sandy Hook, and elsewhere prettysicksupply There's also the fact that if I fuck up and njure, or even KILL someone with my vehicle, or another person's vehicle, or a vehicle I'm not even supposed to drive in the first place- I CAN AND WILL BE PUNISHED FOR THAT. I will be made responsible for that damage/death. Insurance exists to help cover the costs of damages- both to cars and people. If my negligence with a vehicle leads to someone's injury or death- my access to vehicles in the future WILL BE COMPROMISED. So yes... we do regulate cars. We also regulate the DAMAGE CAUSED BY THOSE WHO DRIVE THEM chescaleigh also, cars are meant for transportation. sure they can kill people but their sole purpose is not to kill. a gun's ONLY PURPOSE is to maim or kill its target. you can't take a road trip on a gun or load up a gun with groceries. fuck outta here with this bullshit comparison.

Air Jordan, Instagram, and Life: Asahd Khaled Lands A Deal With Jordan Brand @balleralert Asahd Khaled Lands A Deal With Jordan Brand - blogged by @lanaladonna ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Someone is following in his father’s footsteps early! It has been announced that AsahdKhaled, DJKhaled’s firstborn, and star since birth (literally) has officially signed a deal with Air Jordan. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At just one-years-old, Baby Khaled is the face of Jordan’s first kid's collaboration for apparel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Ok world here I come,” captioned Asahd on his Instagram page, announcing his major deal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Khaled’s caption in an IG post, the collection will include a range of colorful and sporty tops, bottoms, hats, and socks that bring out the style of Asahd through the lens of the Jordan brand. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the same caption, Khaled expressed how proud he was of his son. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Today is a proud day for me not only as a father but for the young kid that still lives inside my heart. I was a kid when I was introduced to the iconic Jordan sneaker. It represented everything I wanted to be aka a winner and the flyest kid on the block. So imagine the joy I felt knowing that my son Asahd Khaled would have the opportunity to have his own partnership with the Jordan brand. @wethebestmusic” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I think it’s safe to say that Asahd is the busiest baby Hollywood’s seen. From executive producer of his first album, ‘Grateful,’ that went platinum, to an award show performer, and now this? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I guess that’s the life you live when ‘you the best.’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Congratulations Asahd!
