Harris as already mentored some at-risk students as part of his community service. He is expected to receive a one year prison sentence, pay $100,000 in fines and comply with all the terms of his plea agreement. He will not actually spend any time in prison provided that he complete 1000 hours of community service.
Harris recently released his CD, "Paper Trail," which has sold close to 2 million copies. Harris has also appeared in the movie "ATL" and in some Chevy commercials. Harris gun bust happened in October 2007 in Atlanta. At the time he was prohibited from gun ownership because of a 1998 felony drug conviction involving possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute.

The study suggests that folks who eat more chicken and fish had lower risks of death. The study took into account other risk factors such as high body mass, smoking, and family history of cancer. Besides the health benefits, cutting back on consumption of red meat may decrease the number of our nations livestock which allegedly produces "greenhouse gas emissions" which are blamed for "global warming." (Yes, less farting cows means less smell and more ozone protection.)

This organized crime syndicate allegedly operated in the U.S. for more than 20 years allegedly resulting in over 1,000 vehicles being stolen in Florida. Victims range from the average Joe car owner to the banks that financed the cars. "Cloning" occurs by taking license plates, vehicle identification numbers (VIN), and other tags and stickers from a legal car and putting them on a hot car. Any consumer who buys the car or any bank that lends on the car risks losing everything because once a stolen vehicle is discovered, the police are obligated to return it to the rightful owner.

Formaldehyde and 1,4 Dioxane In Baby and Child Products Warrants More Intelligent Consumer Practices
Formaldehyde is a by-product of a preservative added to the products to prevent bacteria growth and extend their shelf-life. 1,4-dioxane is a foaming agent in some products.
Twenty-three of 28 products tested contained formaldehyde. 17 of those products contained both formaldehyde and 1,4-dioxane. According to the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics report,
Johnson's Baby Shampoo, L'Oreal Kids Extra Gentle 2-in-1 shampoo and Pampers Kandoo foaming hand soap contained one or more of what some percieve to be hazardous ingredients.
Sixty Seven percent of the 48 products tested contained 1,4-dioxane. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission claims that even trace amounts of 1,4-dioxane give "cause for concern." Similarly, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Health and Human Services have both identified dioxane as causing cancer in animals and as a "probable human carcinogen."
THE REBUTTAL: While the amount of these chemical is below current threshold limits, perhaps the threshold is too high when it comes to children. Children are arguably more vulnerable to the toxic chemicals.

Michael and Teresa Jacobs believe that Gregory had not been formally declared brain dead prior to surgeons beginning to harvest his organs.
Hamot and CORE deny any wrongdoing. Hamot claims that proper consent was received in order for his organs to be donated and all protocols were followed.

Who started it? Well, apparently, Big Blue pulled Pistol Pete's mustache. Big Blue the bull ended up pulling off the fake mustache.. Pistol Pete then pursued the bull and tried to choke him into submission. Mascots Behaving Badly
A Diamondbacks' mascot, Baxter, was recently fired for allegedly driving a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol. He may also have smoked some marijuana earlier in the day.
The Penn State Nittany Lion mascot was suspended after a DUI charge in November. This resulted in the student actor missing the Rose Bowl. Pittsburgh Steelers' team mascot, Steely McBeam, was arrested and accused of DUI.
Mariners' Moose hit former Red Sox outfielder Coco Crisp with an ATV in 2007. Also in 2007, San Francisco's Giants mascot Lou Seal allegedly got in trouble for challenging Dodgers fan to a fist fight. Benny the Bull got in trouble for shooting a T-shirt gun at two Boston Celtics last year.
NMSU ended up winning 71-70. Apparently the $100 Big Blue accepted for pulling off Pistol Pete's mustache will be donated to Kids Kottage, a shelter for abused and neglected children. Since NMSU won and the charity is $100.00 richer, perhaps this one would be a good "no call."

Howard Stern, Khristine Eroshevich and Sandeep Kapoor Are Deep In Hot Water Over Anna Nicole Smith's 2007 Death. Update 10-30-10.
Both Stern and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor were released from a Los Angeles County jail after each posted a $20,000 bond. Dr. Khristine Eroshevich may faces similar charges. Allegedly, Stern and the doctors used fake names so that Smith could be anonymously prescribed "thousands of pills," according to California Attorney General Jerry Brown.
Anna Nicole Smith, at the age of 39, died from an accidental overdose on February 8, 2007. We knew then, that someone would likely take the blame. That someone is apparently Stern and the above named physicians.
At the time of Smith's death, several prescription medications in Smith's and Stern's names -- were found in her hotel room. Both prescription and over-the-counter drugs were found in Smith's system. Human growth hormone and chloral hydrate, a sleep medication, were also sound in Smith's blood. Each defendant was charged with eight felonies and could face up to 3 years in jail for each count. Kapoor and Eroshevich were each charged with obtaining a prescription for opiates by "fraud, deceit or misrepresentation." Felony criminal complaint

Similar idiocracy occurred in Germany. There, Tim Kretschmer, 17, began shooting people at his former school in Winnenden. Eight female students, three female teachers and one male student were shot to death. This has to be just another in a long line of senseless cowardly killings that have become way to common.

Ms. Calabaza provides the lead in to todays story. Given the sad state of our economy, this add seems most appropriate for those who have lost their ass in the stock market and with mutual funds.
Unemployment has hit a 25-year high. Even worse, most employers indicate that hiring isn't likely to increase any time soon according to a Manpower Employment Outlook Survey released Tuesday.
A slower hiring pace for the second quarter of 2009 compared to the first quarter means the recession will persist longer then some thought. Sixty-seven percent of employers expect no change in their spring hiring plans. Jeffrey Joerres, chairman and CEO of Manpower, said in a statement.
Only 15% anticipate anticipated increasing hiring during the second quarter. This represents a decline from 26% in the same period last year.
14% expect a decrease in their payrolls. The net employment outlook is the worst that has been seen since the recession of 1982. Only employers in construction, leisure and hospitality anticipate employment increases. A recent government report revealed that our economy has lost 3.3 million jobs over the past six months. Our unemployment rate is in excess of 8.1%, which represents the highest rate in 25 years.
So, any one want to buy a tractor?

Judge Fox called a recess and Paradiso left the stand and approached the judge from behind with something sharp. Paradiso began striking the judge the bailiffs ran to help. Lodi Police Det. Eric Bradley then shot Paradiso. Bradley apparently saved Judge Fox' life. Next time you are standing in line waiting for a security check, remember the story of David Paradiso and then wait patiently.

30-year-old Chris Gay was accused of stealing a Wal-Mart truck in Coffee County, Tennessee. Chris disappeared when the deputy transporting him there from Orlando stopped at a Waffle House. Gay apparently broke out of his restraints.
The campus was reopened at 5:45 p.m after police could not find Gay. Officials said Kennesaw State would resume its regular schedule Wednesday. Apparently there were several alleged "sightings" of Gay at the KSU Science Building and at the Clendenin Building. (However, it probably should not surprise police that gays are present both on and off academic campus.) Police Search KSU Campus WSB-TV Channel 2 reported that Gay escaped by running from a 40 year veteran deputy who had stopped at a Waffle House at Chastain and I-75 just before 3 p.m. Canine units were used to help search for gay.
Gay had been arrested last week in Orlando after Police discovered computer records that Gay was wanted for stealing a Wal-Mart truck.
