Apr 25th 2011 6:21PM Um....Mary Magdalene is NOT the virgin Mary. She was actually the one that Jesus was said to heal from seven evil spirits that inhabited her body, which actually fits GaGa better. I'm just tired of people giving her the attention she is so obviously desperate for. Why can't you just make music and stop trying to shock people? Ugh.
Nov 9th 2010 1:01PM #1--Jazzland (what it used to be called) is NOT in the 9th ward. It's way out past the east!
#2--I doubt if the structures are sound enough to have movie crews and equipment around it all the time. Plus the health risks of all kinds of microbes out there....The insurance you'd have to take out to film something there would probably blow the budget.
#3--to the person that said it stinks in the N.O. because it's below sea level and because of the above ground graves-- PLEASE EDUCATE YOURSELF! You sound retarded. It's because of tourists pissing and vomiting in the streets all the time because they aren't used to being able to walk around with liquor like we are. They abuse our streets and then go home, leaving us to clean up their messes.
Jun 17th 2010 5:26PM Miss Juliene,
You should contact your local Apple store, or maybe email the corporate office. I know the stores all give classes on how to use the equipment, but if you wrote to corporate, they might see this as a need in more than just your community, and actually hire people to travel to senior living communities to deal with this very issue.
As of right now, however, the only solution is going to the Apple store and taking one of the courses. Good luck!
Mar 4th 2010 3:19PM LMAO!! I was thinking the SAME thing! I swear, these internet reporters are lacking proofreaders. This is the third article I've read on "The Boombox" that has grammatical or spelling errors. Why must we have such LOW STANDARDS!!
Feb 2nd 2010 5:05PM This whole situation is retarded. Seriously Sarah? Just because you have a son with Downs does not mean it's ok for you to abuse and take advantage of this situation. FOR THE RECORD--we don't call people with disabilities "retarded", they are mentally disadvantaged, or mentally disabled. The fact that you took offense to it means that YOU consider those people retarded, you backwoods redneck. Retarded has long been identified as a slang word for something silly or ridiculous. Like you. Used properly in a sentence, it sounds like this: "Sarah Palin is retarded." Why don't you just walk out in the middle of the street and raise your skirt over your head--that would bring you the attention you seem to seek with all your retarded shenanigans.
Jan 6th 2010 8:06PM Not necessarily. That story sounds a little crazy that she brought an IUD with her. Something does not compute. You can't just get IUD's-and they have to be fitted. All the rest of the factors go into her mental state. Having kids she can't afford, suing before--that's circumstantial evidence that can be used to prove that she didn't really ask for what she's claiming to have asked for.
Jan 6th 2010 2:52PM Here's my opinion:
If she wants to sue the doctors for their "mistake," the state should sue her for all her "mistakes," that they have had to pay for--period.
If she claims that she had all those children on purpose without means to support them, SHE should be sued by the Department of Youth and Family Services.
I am all for people who have lots of kids, love them, and can support them. But if you are just out there having unprotected sex and letting the cards fall as they may, you are irresponsible and should not be bailed out every time. That's not fair, and you're teaching your kids to be inconsiderate free-loaders by example.
And she has "Several Fathers"-meaning she is risking her health and life every time she opens her legs. That's not being a good mother, that's wanting what YOU want when YOU want it, and hoping for the best. Being a good mother means sacrifice, smart decisions, and doing what is best for your CHILD and their life.
Close your legs and open your eyes. Those doctors may have made a "mistake", but they did everyone a favor, even her. Maybe this will make her really sit down and think about what she's doing.
PS-WHO THE HELL BRINGS AN IUD TO THE HOSPITAL? Where did she get it, CVS?? Was it expired too?? Besides all the other points I made, this woman is a scam artist.
Jan 6th 2010 2:30PM AMEN!! AMEN!! AMEN!! AMEN!! AMEN!! AMEN!! AMEN!!
and AMEN again!!
This is absolutely ridiculous. I see "scam artist" all over this. She got money for suing before, she just looks like she's at it again.
It's quite obvious that she doesn't make good decisions for her life or her kids-seeing as though she's running around having unprotected sex with "several" men.
Has she thought about contracting HIV and dying, leaving her kids with no one to take care of them? Wanting an IUD means she still wanted to be able to have sex w/o the use of a condom. People like her make it harder for people who have legitimate claims.
Go get a job or do something that doesn't require you to be on your back with your legs wide open, PLEASE.
Dec 16th 2009 12:45PM I have done the master cleanse many times, and I too can attest to it's abilities to help your body. Is it hard? Yes. Is it something you're not going to want to do? Yes. But so is EVERYTHING that leads to success. If being healthy and weighing the proper weight for your body type were EASY, EVERYONE would already be that. But we are so obsessed with quick, easy, lazy ways in this country we are always ready to bash something that does not fit that category. I have been told numerous times that "whatever you are looking for you will find." --So if you're looking for a reason not to do this cleanse, you'll definitely find it. People who talk about it being UNHEALTHY--please. McDonald's is unhealthy, yet there's one on every corner. Cigarettes are unhealthy yet you can get them anytime, anywhere. Everyday there's some new report on something else that gives you cancer, yet it's still mass produced and sold, not taken off shelves.
This cleanse is good for you, it helps you get to a point where you actually think about what you eat (if you're doing it for the right reasons, which is to CLEANSE your digestive tract, not lose weight fast), and it will help with other bodily malfunctions you have that stem from the toxins you put in your body. The worse you eat, the harder the first few days are gonna be. Try to increase your intake of veggies, leafy greens and lean protein the WEEK before you start-that way your body will have a heads up that change is coming. It may or may not help with the detox symptoms (headaches, bloating, icky-feeling). I did it for 21 days and I've never felt better in my life. I craved veggies, and if I put so much as a McDonalds french fry in my mouth, I gagged. Real potatoes, no problem. I am going to do it again after the holidays-because I have been eating lots of things the past 6 months that I shouldn't have, and my DT has been paying the price heavily. Bloated, constipated, can't fit my clothes, uncomfortable, etc.
If you're serious about cleansing your system, I say go for it, yet pay attention to your body--if you get to the point where you feel you are really not doing something right, consult a homeopathic doctor (regular md's will just tell you to eat again and give you a PILL for weight loss or IBS...hello alli?). If I had to work on a day I was doing it, I would puree carrots and eat that a little at a time-so the overcooked veggies suggestion from above is valid. I know people who have cleansed for 40 days. Start with 10 though. Good luck!
Feb 13th 2009 12:15AM Listen, I was always taught that a man shouldn't hit a woman and a woman shouldn't provoke a man. Bite marks on your arm and fingers indicate she had him in a headlock. Chris is professionally trained in martial arts-he probably used a defensive move on her because she was choking him or something. You would be singing a completely different tune if the headline read "Chris Brown killed by Rhianna over text message from another woman." Just think about both sides before conclusions are drawn.
