(PCM) When Jody Quigley signed on to play the leading man in “Apparition,” a supernatural thriller set in rural Pennsylvania, he knew he would enjoy the acting challenge, but he honestly had no idea how far the film’s reach would extend.

Now, the movie produced by his father’s company, Thundersmoke Media, and starring an impressive cast and director, has garnered nine awards at festivals around the world, is headed to the acclaimed Toronto International Film Festival this fall, and will help open the 7th Annual New Hope Film Festival.

Highlighting the New Hope Film Festival, as one of 89 films from 11 countries, “Apparition,” a riveting movie, is showing at the New Hope Arts Center, 2 Stockton Avenue, New Hope,PA., on Saturday, July 23, at 5:30 p.m.

Picturesque New Hope has attracted, and been home to many talented producers, screenwriters, actors, playwrights, and performance art enthusiasts. The village is centrally located less than an hour from Philadelphia and 90 minutes from New York.

Many of the films are U.S. and world premieres. Countries represented include the USA, Italy, Canada, Turkey, India, Australia, Switzerland, Ukraine, UK, Kuwait and Brazil. Filmmakers from around the country and abroad will attend the screenings. There will be opportunities to meet filmmakers at the question and answer sessions following the films.

“People should come out because we have one of the best independent film lineups in the world, and that’s not only my opinion” explained Doug Whipple, the director of NHFF. “We hear it all the time from filmmakers who have traveled the festival circuit.”

For NHFF tickets please go to: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2552734.

Watch the “Apparition” trailer here:

The movie focuses on Doug, (Jody Quigley), and Lori, (Katrina Law), his beautiful fiancée, who buy an isolated and dilapidated farmhouse to renovate with visions of a happy fairytale life together. But something goes terribly wrong after Lori is killed in a car accident. Doug has no inkling that his fixer upper is filled with a cadre of haunted secrets.

This nightmarish premise of “Apparition” and the unusual love triangle involved, expertly explores the difficult themes of love, death, and the fragility of the mind.

“I am thrilled with the attention “Apparition” has received,” said Jody Quigley, 36, of Doylestown, Pennsylvania. “It’s sort of like a love story in a weird way. It is intriguing and a little more off the beaten path. Instead of the characters getting slashed to death, this is a mind thriller. This movie is definitely messing with your head, and in some scenes, what I would call uber-creepy.”

Quigley, who has won four acting awards for the film, has also starred in the movies, “Wicked Blood,” “Hijacked,” “In the Bag,” and “Breaking Wind.”

He fondly remembers making the movie several years ago and bonding with his co-stars: Katrina Law “Spartacus” and “Arrow,” Lily Bordan (“The Martian” and “Cherry,” and Tom Roy (“12 Monkeys”), and his director, Quinn Saunders, best known for his work on TV’s “Big Brother,” and the film, “Cherry.”

“Apparition” is the end result of hard work done by the cast and crew on a tight budget and a grueling 18-day film schedule in May 2013. Combining this with accomplished local talent, and extensive local resources, the movie is riveting.

The film offers many recognizable locations: Scenes were shot in Hatboro at the Village Hardware store, the Stroker Roadhouse, a Hatboro watering hole, and, of course, the historic Penrose Strawbridge House in Horsham’s Graeme Park, which sits in the middle of 357 acres and is part of a national Historic Land Trust, located in Montgomery County.

Peter Choate, executive director of the Horsham Preservation and Historical Association, lives in the house with his wife, Margaret, and the couple agreed to move out for six weeks during the filming to stay with a local friend.

So is the house haunted. Or not? “Some say it is, and some say it isn’t,” replied Choate. “We’ve had three groups of paranormal investigators come through. My wife and I have lived here for 10 years and we have never seen any incident of a ghost except one unusual occurrence.”

It is well-documented that the owner of the home, Margaret Strawbridge, abhorred smoking and forbade anyone from lighting tobacco in the home. Choate recalled in great detail the day he felt like having a cigar and lit up. “I was sitting at my computer upstairs smoking that cigar and I felt a double tap on my shoulder,” he said. “I turned around and no one was there. I put it out and never smoked in the house again”

Producer and entrepreneur Guy Quigley, who is also Jody’s proud father, said that the film had an arduous 18-day shooting schedule in several Bucks and Montgomery County locations. He is pleased that the movie has garnered nine recent film awards around the globe and is clearly an audience favorite.

“People are finding this to be a highly intriguing movie. It is a thriller with an extremely interesting psychological element,” Guy explained. “Some people like the more Hitchcock feel as opposed to the blood and gore.”

During a recent chat with Quinn Saunders, 40, of Lumberton, N.J. the award-winning director of “Apparition,” expressed the importance of the house to the film. “Once we located it, we re-wrote the script for this house,” Saunders explained. “This house is another leading character in the script – it was crucial for this film.”

Q: Quinn, please talk about Apparition’s journey from Bucks and Montgomery Counties in Pennsylvania, to film festival around the globe.

Quinn Saunders: It’s incredibly gratifying to know that Apparition has been embraced and enjoyed by so many people across the world.

Q: Why do you think the movie has captured the imagination of its audiences far and wide?

QS: I think at its core, Apparition is incredibly relatable to anyone who has experienced substantial loss in their life; and it doesn’t hurt that it has some good scares in it as well.

Q: What are your fondest memories of making the movie?

QS: It was wonderful getting to make a movie so close to where I grew up, but my favorite part was working with all of the talented actors and a great crew of creative people.

Q: Have you kept in touch with Jody and Guy Quigley?

QS: Of course, we shared a great experience making the movie and we are partners in bringing it to the world.

Q: Have you worked with any of the cast members since Apparition?

QS: No, but I would love to work with all of them again.

Q: What project are you currently involved in?

QS: My partner and I are currently putting together a project called Hitman that has Adam Beach (“Suicide Squad” and “Flags of Our Fathers”) attached as the star. It’s an amazing action film with Adam as a U.S. Special Forces veteran who winds up as a hit-man for Mexican drug gangs down on the border. He has a change of heart after he is wounded in a gunfight and recovers on a Native American reservation. While there, he falls in love and decides to defend the Reservation against the Mexican drug gangs that are trying to use it as their base of operations.

Guy Quigley, the film’s producer, also recently talked about the film’s global reach and being proud that “Apparition” has circled back to his home-town roots.

Q: What is your reaction to all of the awards that your son, Jody, and the film have received?

Guy Quigley: The first award was from the Indie Film Festival 2015, Switzerland, where Jody Quigley was awarded “Best actor in a leading role.” This was somewhat inspiring, which led me to enter several other Festivals. Since then we have won a total of nine winning awards, four of which were awards Jody received. We have a further four nominations, results yet to be known and screenings to come at the New Hope Film Festival and the Peachtree Village International Film Festival.

Q: Why do you feel audiences continue to respond so well to Apparition?

GQ: I believe it may have to do with the fact that “Apparition” is more of a psychological thriller as opposed to horror. Some people like the more Hitchcock feel than blood and gore.

Q: What are your thoughts about the film being at the New Hope Film Festival?

GQ: We were really delighted to hear that we were an official selection in the NHFF. The fact is that the entire movie was shot in Bucks County is good for all movie makers trying to complete films locally and a golden opportunity to expose the finished work.

Q: Why do you encourage movie buffs to come to the festival?

GQ: It is really simple these days to stream a movie from various websites, however, to really appreciate any movie, the best place to see is on a big screen with 5.1 Dolby stereo. So I encourage everyone to please come out.

“Apparition” is available for streaming and on DVD at Amazon.com

(PCM) No, this is not April Fool’s Day! Scientists at Queen Mary University of London have revealed that they are one step closer to creating an actual working cloak of invisibility. This definitely sounds like news that is straight out of a science fiction novel, however the university claims that they were successfully able to “cloak” a tennis-ball shaped object with a nanocomposite medium.

The scientists claim that they have created a material that allows protruding areas of an object appear flat to any sort of electromagnetic waves. The material they created can essentially mask or “cloak” an object that normally would have cause the electromagnetic waves to scatter in various directions.

The lead scientist on the project, Yan Hao, comments “We demonstrated a practical possibility to use nanocomposites to control surface wave propagation through advanced additive manufacturing. Perhaps most importantly, the approach used can be applied to other physical phenomena that are described by wave equations, such as acoustics. For this reason, we believe that this work has a great industrial impact.”

We think this could definitely have some major benefits, but it is also a little bit scary, as you never know what could be hiding behind a “cloak of invisibility” leaving us fairly vulnerable to the unknown.  There is a still a lot more research and experimentation yet to occur, so we probably don’t have to worry about such things for quite a while, but needless to say, it is a pretty fascinating idea.

(PCM) The University of North Texas is receiving a fair amount of criticism after individuals began to take notice that the schools logo, when placed on a coffee mug spells out a rather vulgar word used to reference a certain part of the female anatomy.

It is obvious that someone did not think this design through all the way, or maybe they just have a twisted sense of humor. Either way, the mug is still currently for sale and can be found on the Barnes & Noble website.

Once the coffee mug in question began receiving backlash, Barnes & Noble removed the controversial image, however later a edited version popped up with the mug’s handle flipped to the opposite side no longer showcasing a “dirty” word.

The coffee mug/logo has been a bit of an issue for the University of North Texas over the years and every so often it will recirculate the internet every couple of years. Everyone is scrambling to purchase the controversial coffee mugs and we have to admit there are a few people we could think of that would more than deserve to drink their morning brews out of one of these bad boys.!

(PCM) Dirty Heads is a name that is popping up everywhere on the music scene these days and they are busy gearing up for the release of their fifth self-titled album which will drop on July 15. We were absolutely thrilled to nab an early listen to the upcoming album and we can say with certainly that fans are sure to be in for a treat.

Dirty Heads are a band that has the uncanny ability to flawlessly blend together a multitude of both musical style and genre to create a unique sound that is very much their own. In our humble opinion we feel that the new self-titled album showcases some of Dirty Head’s best work to date and is sure to appeal to both longtime fans and quite a few new ones as well!

We had a chance to catch up with Dirty Heads drummer Jon Olazabel to of course discuss the new album, but also share some details about upcoming touring plans and more. When asked what fans should be expecting for the new album Jon told us “You should be expecting some of our greatest work ever done”.  We couldn’t agree more.

DH4

Digging a little deeper we asked Jon to chat with us about what the mindset was like in the recording studio when the band was putting together the album. He replied ” For this album, as far as the studio goes, we decided that instead of going out of town or isolating ourselves from everything as we have done in the past,  for this one we decided to stay close to home, here in a studio in L.A..  It was awesome to be able to record for a few days and then if you weren’t needed you could actually go home and spend some time with the family. We worked with a few different producers and feel that we really came out with some good stuff that we are stoked on.”

Sometimes the area which a band records can have an influence on the overall sound or theme of a record. Jon commented “I don’t feel that area really influences our sound too much, as all of influence mostly comes from experiences and such that occurred before we get into the studio. This time around the recording process was definitely a very easy, light-hearted and fun studio experience for us and I’m sure that somehow translated into the music.”

When speaking about the band’s evolution to this point in the career, Jon tells us “We have definitely learned a lot over the years with all the different albums we’ve done and with the last one we kind of experimented with a new sound. It was a bit more alternative and we had some different ideas that we wanted to try and kind of get out of our system. We thought it came out great and now with this record we are going back a little bit more towards our original sound and older styles we did in the beginning. It’s awesome.”

DH1

We feel that it is wonderful that Dirty Heads can not be boxed into any particular genre and that they very much have the ability to do their own thing. Jon says “It’s funny because we never really made a conscious effort to do that, but I guess that’s just the music that we’ve always been influenced by and it came out that way. Somehow we have managed to blend different styles and genres and we are able to pull it off”.

We were recently able to catch Dirty Head’s out on the road with both Bleeker and Sublime w/ Rome and there is such an amazing generational appeal to their music. You see fans of every age group and demographic imaginable all rocking out and having the time of their lives. Jon comments “That is one of our favorite things. It is one of the things that we are most proud of and it’s crazy to see. We do a lot of meet and greets before our shows and we’ll have everyone from little kids all the way up to grandparents coming through that love the music and somehow find a similar connection through it.  It’s great for us.”

Bleeker1
Sublime1

When speaking about the changes in the music industry and the fact that the band’s music actually says something to listeners, we asked Jon if there was anything he would change. He replied “We just try to stick to our guns and do what we do because we know that we believe in our music and have faith in what we do. Things are always going to change around us, but if we just keep our head down and keep working and stick to our original plan, it’s all gonna work. It’s also super hard to keep up with everything that’s going on out there.”

It can be hard for artist’s to earn a solid stream of revenue these days especially when it comes to streaming and illegal downloading. Jon adds “It is definitely a little frustrating, but I guess that is just the way that things go now. ”

Jon reveals that music first began speaking to him when he was a very young child. He says “In probably the fifth or sixth grade I started messing around with drums and I had an older sister that was big into music and she kind of dragged me along for the ride.  She exposed me to a lot of cool stuff early on and it stuck with me and somehow I link up with these guys in the band and it worked out. ”

DH2

Dirty Heads are certainly true road warriors, playing a ton of live dates each year. Speaking about upcoming touring plans, Jon reveals, “We are going to be doing a lot of touring this year. We start in a few days in Florida out with Sublime w/ Rome and that tour runs through August and we are pretty much just going to be going constantly till the end of the year.  We are trying to support this record and get in as many shows as possible.”

Every fan is going to have a different favorite song, so we were curious if Jon was ever surprised by which ones fans tend to gravitate towards. He says “It’s so funny because we think we know what we’re talking about thinking this particular song will be the best single and we’re always surprised by what people gravitate towards. It’s impossible for us to know.”

In the day and age of the internet there is often times a bunch of misinformation floating around out there about certain bands. Jon comments ” I feel like the guys are pretty clear with their lyrics and they kind of wear everything on their sleeve. They are upfront about who they are and who we are and we try to be pretty honest about that. We don’t really hide anything so hopefully people get it.”

DH5

Jon reveals that the Dirty Head’s creative process is a collaborative one saying ” Duddy and Jared, usually have all the starts to the songs and then we work together holed up in a room and start beating on the stuff to try to figure out how to put the song together.  We definitely work together in that way.”

Nivea came up with the idea to build a rather large remote-controlled drone in the shape of a seagull which literally poops out globs of sunscreen on unsuspecting children as they are frolicking along on the beach. Yes, it looks as ridiculous as it sounds!

The company felt the sunscreen pooping seagull drone was the perfect answer to the on-going issue of parents attempting to put sunscreen on squirming children who refuse to sit still at the beach. It’s actually kind of creepy and the fact that the drone is being controlled by two creeper Nivea representatives who are watching your children while hiding in a sand dune does not make this whole scenario play out any better at all.

We could only imagine seeing this thing swooping around during a day at the beach! Too weird!

(PCM) Just in case you have been living under a rock these past few days, Pokemon Go has been taking over our smartphones one adorable creature at a time. Seriously, everyone is talking about this highly addictive game. Even the developers, themselves, had no idea just how popular Pokemon Go would become causing several major server crashes within the first few days of it’s release.

The awesome part of the game is that it is sending players outside in droves, as they are all exploring areas of their cities and towns trying their best to catch elusive Pokemon that may be hiding in the wild. The game encourages players to be active and the more you travel about the higher the chance you have at Pokemon mastery.

It is a very simple game, even for those who have never heard of Pokemon before and that ease and incorporation of smartphone technology has cause it to become a viral sensation overnight for both fans and newcomers alike. To play the game you have to get up and out of the house and begin exploring the area around you. It uses your smartphones GPS signal to determine your location and then alerts you to the Pokemon that are located the closest to you.

In order to move around in the game, you must also move around in real life. Your character will travel on the map in same direction that you are moving and you can visit areas such as Training Gyms and Pokestops along your journey to collect additional items to assist with game play. As you can imagine the game is not without a few challenges, as some people are finding that Pokemon they are trying to catch are located in areas that can be rather difficult to get to or are secured facilities.

Remember, people, do not do anything illegal to catch a Pokemon!  There have already been quite a few fender benders from those who are attempting to hunt for Pokemon while operating their motor vehicles. There have also already been incidents where people are not playing attention to where they are walking because they are too busy looking at their smartphone screens and getting injured.

One player even discovered a dead body floating in a lake in Wyoming as she was attempting to capture Pokemon hiding in the location. Also, several churches and police stations in various areas are coming up as Pokestops (locations to collect game items) and officials are warning players to use caution when attempting to “catch em’ all” in these particular locations.

Pokemon Go has been a blessing for small business as many of these locations also double as Pokestops, drawing tons of customers out to the location. Business owners should embrace the influx of traffic and many are already playing off their new found popularity with Pokemon specials and tongue-in-cheek signs.

Pokemon-Go2

Pokemon Go is currently available for free download in the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Japan from either the iTunes Store or the Google Play Store.  It will be rolling out to additional regions in the coming months.

The trailer below is perfect visual description of how the game works:

(PCM) There is always a little room for sexual humor every now and again and it never fails to cause a case of the giggles. This rings especially true when it comes to the name of a certain little town in Newfoundland that boasts an fairly NSFW name and could lead to quite a few uncomfortable conversations with your children when attempting to explain just why the name of the town is inappropriate.

We have discovered that there is legitimately a town in Newfoundland named Dildo and the good folks who reside in Dildo are referred to as Dildonians. Seriously!  We couldn’t make this up if we tried! The town is best known for their marine resources, whatever that means.

There are roughly 1,200 individuals who reside in Dildo and the town has been in existence since the late 18th century, so why we are just hearing about this now is beyond us!  There have been a few attempts to have the name of town changed to something a little less controversial, however all attempts have been blocked and the residents are quite proud of both their name and their rich heritage.

The town does however feature some hilarious named shops such as The Treasure Cover, The B&M Machine Shop, and The Mattress Store none of which happen to be a sex shop ironically enough!

(PCM) The Kardashian/Jenner clan have always had their noses in various business opportunities throughout the fashion and entertainment realm. Some have been a success, while others, such as Kylie Jenner’s cosmetics company turn out to be a flop with a capital “F”.

Kylie Cosmetics has just recently received an “F” grade from the Better Business Bureau (BBB), which is obviously the lowest rating a company can receive. The grade was given to the company mainly due to terrible customer service and complaints surrounding delivery and overall manufacturing.

Kylie has not even had the company open for a full year yet and already there are close to 150 complaints from customers that have been reported to the BBB.  On their official report the BBB states “Currently the BBB is receiving multiple complaints from this company’s customers claiming that after ordering and paying for products, some or all of the products are not being shipped as expected. The company’s refund policy states, “We do not accept returns, exchanges or refunds. All sales are final.” However the company will replace missing items.”

Many individuals have also been complaining about the overall quality of the products themselves and Kylie’s name is being mocked fairly harshly throughout the cosmetics industry. Guess, this is what happens when you allow an 18-year old girl to run a company and only proves that not everything the Kardashian/Jenner clan touches turns to gold!

MoreHeavenbookcover(PCM) When a young, determined special education teacher takes on the impossible task of teaching six so-called “unteachable” children, she not only transforms their lives; she also opens the doors for all future exceptional students who followed.

This is the premise of “More Heaven: Because Every Child Is Special,” the riveting new book, by International Bestselling Author, Dr. Jo Anne White, a noted motivational speaker, TV & radio executive producer and host of “Power Your Life.”

The book, published by Outskirts Press, has won numerous honors, including the Mom’s Choice Award Honoring Excellence and the Best Ever You Books Blue Ribbon Award for Excellence. It’s also an Amazon top 10 International Bestseller in three categories.

In 1975, the federal government mandated that all children, regardless of disability, be given the right to a public education.As a result of this historic mandate, this young pioneering teacher – with heaping doses of pluck and perseverance – stepped into a Philadelphia classroom of exceptional learners and transformed their world.

This “true life” experiment took place when Dr. White was hired by the Philadelphia Board of Education as the first teacher and program coordinator for children who were either expelled or had never entered the hallways or classrooms of a public school.

The cutting-edge program, which initially was not embraced by the typical education teachers, parents or by the administrators,began slowly. Its success paved the way for more special education classes to open in the public arena. “Not only did we persevere,” Dr. White explained, “we conquered skepticism and won victories for these children to live and thrive in society.”

Dr. White says that she fought hard, alongside the children and their tireless parents, “to restore dignity in their lives. This dignity, the birthright of every human being, had been denied them. The time had come to make things right.”

This pioneer has crucial lessons for all of us today: to learn that despite tremendous obstacles, each of us can use our compassion to bring out the best in our children. By using her common sense, imagination,sheer will, and a caring heart, she truly changed the lives of these formerly“unteachable” students in her class.

Dr. White still vividly recalls the first day of school when a little girl named Eva, who had autism, arrived for the new program.“There was great skepticism on the part of the faculty and the administration,of the notion of educating Eva. The girl’s driver echoed those sentiments to the young teacher, ‘Believe me,’ he confides, ‘I wouldn’t want your job for nothin’ in the world.’”

Q: How will your book, “More Heaven: Because Every Child is Special,” positively impact parents, teachers and the greater community?

DR. JO ANNE WHITE: I’d like people to understand how wonderful these children are, instead of seeing them as strange or approaching them with great apprehension. We need to be able to co-exist and embrace our differences when it comes to everything: ethnicity, culture, learning,and neurological differences. So, it has always been very important for me that everyone understand the richness and beauty of each child. That is the way to truly embrace humanity.

Q: Please tell me a little bit about your history as a teacher.

JW: I was planning to go to school for English literature and writing, until I became involved in an inclusive camp program. When this visionary director of the program created a division for children with special needs, it opened my eyes and I changed my plan to study education and special education.

Q: That sounds like a life-changing moment.

JW: Yes. When I walked into that camp program I completely fell in love with the children there.

Q: What do you recall from that experience?

JW: I remember working with one little girl who would bite her arms and bite the insides of her cheeks with sores that wouldn’t heal. She hummed and had ritualistic behavior. I immediately took her under wing, and sang to her, and massaged her cheeks, when no one else wanted to go near her. She blossomed under my care. This was such a beautiful life-altering experience and it shaped my future. I thought to myself ‘this is important.’

Q: Did the text books prepare you for that first special education classroom?

JW: No, not with these children. What I learned in school was important and served me; but I also had to bring something else to these kids. I had to reach them with unconventional methods, by getting into each of their worlds and being extremely resourceful, imaginative and creative.

Q: Please talk about being a young special education teacher, what was that like?

JW: I didn’t know what to expect. There were so many unknowns; and the truth be told, not everybody, including the faculty and many parents, wanted this to happen. It was new territory; people were afraid and misinformed. This was a case of sink or swim; I didn’t know what to expect.These children were labeled as more disabled than some of the previous groups of children I had taught. The first girl, who had autism, came to school in a taxi because it was thought ‘how could she function on a bus or relate to other kids.’

Q: But you say you never considered giving up even on the toughest days. So what about you personally made you stick with it, no matter how overwhelming this was?

JW: Something that has served me well over the course of my life is perseverance. I have patience, perseverance and an understanding that the time has to be right for everything. I also know that in life you need to take chances.

Dr.JoAnneWhiteQ: What is the most important life lesson for each of us who work with and care for children?

JW: My book gives you a front row seat where you get to know these six children up close and personal. It’s important to understand that despite the many challenges and mannerisms each child faces and family,each child has special gifts we need to nurture and celebrate every single day.

Q: How is all of this relevant today – some 40 years later?

JW: There are many reasons. One major reason is about bullying, and the way children with special needs are still judged, as opposed to being accepted by their communities. My book, “Bully Free,” which also won awards, ties into “More Heaven.” It focuses on my interviews with parents about their children with autism and special needs who were victims of bullying at school and in the community, and the deep emotional scars left on these families.

Q: How did you know how to teach these so-called“unteachable” children?

JW: I knew that I had to reach these kids, so I did whatever I could do, as long as it was ethical. With the first child, I used play, movement and dance since she was never still for long. Much of this was not a part of typical classroom lessons. I was literally utilizing whatever I could to make that connection, and for each child it was different. I knew I had to reach them and had to figure out how to enter their different worlds so they would eventually embrace and accept the world of learning and socialization.

Q: What was the result?

JW: Each of my students slowly started to accept their surroundings and felt ‘wow, this is okay. My teacher is not telling me I am crazy or ridiculous.’ I was able to get them to trust me, open up to their individual worlds and join our world.

Q: Why are you so proud of this book?

JW: I am repeatedly told that “More Heaven,” captures people’s hearts. It allows the reader to see what went on back then, and to understand that despite the strides we have made we are not there yet. Many parents at that time were told that their children could never learn or would best be served by an institution.

Q: What are the vital life lessons for all of us?

JW: People need to recognize the struggles, the passion and determination from families who have done so much to create change. We need to say to the world ‘stop putting blinders on and let’s teach these kids and not hide from it or ignore it.’ All these years’ parents have fought and pushed for change, and there are parents today who are continuing to fight for acceptance, inclusion and dignity for their children.

Q: What makes you believe we need to keep pushing for acceptance?

JW: As an example, in 2014 there was a lawsuit in California involving an autistic boy who was considered to be a trouble maker. Neighbors sued and were also worried about their reduced property values. This action eventually drove the family from their home of seven years.

Q: So is your message that history will keep repeating itself if people don’t step up and make the change?

JW: Absolutely. It’s happening on the playgrounds, in the schools and the communities. There was bullying, judgment and disapproval at the time I taught these children. Unfortunately, it still happens a great deal to children who act or appear different in social or educational settings today.

Q: Ultimately, what do you want your book to accomplish?

JW: I’d like professionals to be open to work with these children even if at times the techniques seem unconventional. I wish for all families and parents to learn to accept their children and guide them to express their talents. And I’d like families, neighbors and the general public to see these children in a warmer light after reading my book and interface with the special needs community. I frequently say that ‘this book reaches in from the heart outward to all children – they will be heard!’

(PCM) Even those who have dedicated their lives to the church get busy sometimes! This was exactly the case with the priest who hilariously left a note for parishioners to keep their confessions brief and to the point due to being the priest on duty that evening.

There must have been an over abundance of confessions in this particular church to even spark the need to write such a note in the first place. The priest wanted to make sure that everyone had their fair chance at confession and penance. He probably could have added to the note to skip the confession all together and just say four Hail Mary’s!

The priests note read as follows: “Confession today (Saturday) will be until exactly 5:30pm. There is only one priest available for confession today. Make your confession direct to the point and confess only your sins and offenses. No need to explain why you did it. Thank you very much!”

Apparently, mass being delayed due to an overabundance of confessions on Saturdays is a pretty common problem at various churches, so this particular priest made the decision to take matters into his own hands and solve the issue at hand.

More than 2 million fans will be part of this highly celebrated musical event and Guns N’ Roses always put on a spectacular performance.  We are super stoked that the band will be bringing this fantastic show to the City Of Brotherly Love!

Guns N’ Roses launched their return in spectacular fashion beginning with the Troubadour in Los Angeles on April 1 for their first live performance in more than 20 years followed by back-to-back arena shows in Vegas filling the house to the rafters, then Coachella for two weekends (April 16 and April 23) including a trip south of the border for two sold out stadium shows in Mexico on April 19-20 … April saw almost a half million fans alone in North America!

Following the group’s 1985 formation, Guns N’ Roses injected unbridled, unrivaled, and unstoppable attitude into the burgeoning Los Angeles rock scene. The spirit went on to captivate the entire world with the release of their 1987 debut Appetite for Destruction –the best-selling U.S. debut ever, moving 30 million copies globally. In 1991, the seven-time platinum Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II occupied the top two spots of the Billboard Top 200 upon release. Over the course of the past decade, Guns N’ Roses have performed sold out shows and headlined festivals worldwide following the critically acclaimed release of 2008’s RIAA platinum-certified Chinese Democracy. Six studio albums later, Guns N’ Roses are one of the most important and influential acts in music history and continue to set the benchmark for live performances connecting with millions of fans across the globe.

(PCM) There is already controversy brewing surrounding the news that researchers are well on their way to creating the world’s first artificial womb. The news sparks many debates over the issue of science and technology taking over for human life and the interaction between mothers and their newborn babies.

For many years little was known about the first few weeks of an embryo’s development inside of a woman’s uterus, however researchers have now discovered a way to watch fertilized eggs begin to grow and develop. Recently, researchers at Rockefeller University were able to watch and raise human embryos for a period of thirteen days.

Thus far, thirteen days is the only amount of time that is ethically allowed for human embryo growth and development for research purposes. That small amount of time, however, provided researchers with a plethora of knowledge and information and they learned that an embryo does indeed contain it’s own genetic instruction manual to aid in the development process. They found this information is not shared with the mother until much further along in the pregnancy.

This new information opens the door for researchers to explore various options for human growth and development that would no longer be dependent on a human womb. While it does raise quite a few ethical questions about the bond between a mother and child, it also opens doors for women who are unable to carry out pregnancies due to certain physical ailments.

The way it would work is that a woman’s fertilized egg would be implanted into a lab-created womb which would contain all the vital nutrients needed for the developing fetus, including an artificial placenta and amniotic fluid. Parents to be would also have the ability to control their child’s gender and physical appearance, as well as, certain desirable genetic traits.

This all certainly sounds like something straight out a science fiction novel and brings up the age old question of whether or not is okay for researchers to play God in the name of science.

The Declaration of IndependenceJUly4When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. —

Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.

He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.

He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislature.

He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states:
For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing taxes on us without our consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury:
For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses:
For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these colonies:
For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:
For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow citizens taken captive on the high seas to bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In Jefferson’s draft there is a part on slavery here

In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends.

We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

There are only about 800 inhabitants of Kaitangata, which is located near the coastline on the South Island. The area is heavily involved in both the dairy processing and freezing industries and are hoping to jump start their economy by filling nearly 1,000 open job positions within these industries.

(PCM) The news has been circulating that the small New Zealand town of Kaitangata is offering individuals nearly $170,000 to relocate to the region to assist with filling it’s surplus of job opportunities.

There are only about 800 inhabitants of Kaitangata, which is located near the coastline on the South Island. The area is heavily involved in both the dairy processing and freezing industries and are hoping to jump start their economy by filling nearly 1,000 open job positions within these industries.

The town has been busing in workers from larger cities to the region and hopes that many will decide to make Kaitangata their permanent home. It was originally stated that the town was making an offer of nearly $170,000 to individuals who were looking to relocate, however, much as we suspected this offer turned out to be too good to be true.

Instead, the town is offering up gorgeous plots of land for the price of $170,000. They pride themselves on being an old-fashioned community where the doors remained unlocked, kids are free to play without fear of dangers and there is a steady and stable way of life. There is plenty of work and room for home, however the only thing the town is lacking in more residents.

This story went viral after it was misreported that the mayor of Kaitangata was offering up money for relocation which prompted many calls to the mayor’s office with hopefuls looking to make some quick cash and move to New Zealand. Hey, who isn’t up for a little adventure?  Sadly, this is not the case and they have posted the following statement via Facebook to address the issue and misinformation:

There is a story that has been published by overseas media that we are paying people $160,000 to move to Kaitangata and people should ring the Mayor about it. This is NOT TRUE. People are not being paid to move to Kaitangata and you should not contact the Mayor about it. If you are genuinely interested in the house and land packages in Kaitangata, which are on sale for $230,000 or want to know more about working and living in our district, please visit www.cluthadc.govt.nz for more information. Please feel free to share this post to try and combat the misinformation and stop creating false hope for the hundreds of people around the world that are busy contacting Council! Thanks, Clutha District Council.

Better luck next time, guys!!

(PCM) The optical illusion that is showcased below took second place in the Illusion Of The Year contest and it has since gone viral thanks to Reddit with individuals trying hard to wrap their minds around just how this trick was completed. The illusion was created by Kokichi Sugihara at Meiji University in Japan and is called “The Ambiguous Cylinder”.

The official description of the trick found on the Illusion Of The Year website reads, “The direct views of the objects and their mirror images generate quite different interpretations of the 3D shapes. They look like vertical cylinders, but their sections appear to be different; in one view they appear to be rectangles, while in the other view they appear to be circles. We cannot correct our interpretations although we logically know that they come from the same objects. Even if the object is rotated in front of a viewer, it is difficult to understand the true shape of the object, and thus the illusion does not disappear.”

Of course we live in the day and age of the internet and we are all self-made detectives, so someone has already posted another video explaining just how this illusion was created using only the magic of 3-D printing. It is definitely still pretty mind-blowing and crazy to get a glimpse of  how our brains can process certain information and visual imagery.

(PCM) During the recent College World Series game between the TCU Horned Frogs and the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers in Omaha, Nebraska, the all-star of the game has gone viral for his unwavering level of pure intensity and guess what … it wasn’t one of the players.

As the camera is panning around the ball park it comes to rest on one odd little boy, who then proceeds to stare at the camera so intensely that you will swear he is looking directly into your own. He then begins to ham it up, however his gaze never once departs from the lens. It’s pretty creepy!

One of the challenges that Ian and thousands of other parents deal with is bedwetting. Ian is a former bed wetter, so he knows how embarrassing or shameful it can feel, and now his children are experiencing nighttime wetting as well. Bedwetting can be hereditary, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. Experts say bedwetting is not your child’s fault, and there are ways you can help your child through the problem. Ian is working to break the stigma associated with nighttime wetting, and to help parents and their children rest easy tonight.

FDA Issues New Warning About The Dangers Of Consuming Raw Cookie Dough http://pcmworldnews.com/news/2016/06/fda-issues-new-warning-about-the-dangers-of-consuming-raw-cookie-dough/ Thu, 30 Jun 2016 22:33:09 +0000 http://pcmlifestyle.com/?p=32757 cookie-dough

(PCM) Those of us who are big fans of taking a few licks of the spoon when making some delicious chocolate chip cookies may want to think twice as the FDA has issued a new warning about the potential dangers from consuming raw cookie dough.

The FDA claims that in addition to any type of raw cookie dough, you should not consume any type of raw batter at all. This is due to the continued outbreak of illnesses that are linked to a particular strain of E.coli that was discovered to be present in flour that has since been recalled.  The FDA goes on to warn that children should not be given any type of raw dough to play with as well, this goes for certain restaurants as well, that would often give children some raw pizza dough to play with while waiting for their food.… Full Story

(PCM) Those of us who are big fans of taking a few licks of the spoon when making some delicious chocolate chip cookies may want to think twice as the FDA has issued a new warning about the potential dangers from consuming raw cookie dough.

The FDA claims that in addition to any type of raw cookie dough, you should not consume any type of raw batter at all. This is due to the continued outbreak of illnesses that are linked to a particular strain of E.coli that was discovered to be present in flour that has since been recalled.  The FDA goes on to warn that children should not be given any type of raw dough to play with as well, this goes for certain restaurants as well, that would often give children some raw pizza dough to play with while waiting for their food.

The source of the E.coli was discovered in flour which was recalled by General Mills last month and it affected nearly 10 million packages. The outbreak occurred at General Mills facility in Kansas City, MO and the company says a sample of the recalled flour tested positive for the E. coli strain.

Many people infected by the E.coli bacteria can suffer bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps. Kidney failure is also possible, but not common. At least 10 people have been hospitalized due to the outbreak, however thus far no deaths have been reported. The FDA advises that anyone handling raw dough or flour should immediately wash their hands and anything else the dough or flour may have come in contact. E. coli bacteria can be killed once food is baked, boiled or otherwise heated during preparation.

Prior to the E.coli scare, individuals were warned not to consume raw cookie dough over fear of salmonella poisoning due to the raw eggs present in the batter. It now poses an even more dangerous risk. If you simply must have a taste of raw cookie dough, try ice cream that contains chunks of cookie dough, as those have been made with treated flour and pasteurized eggs.

(PCM) This will definitely a huge game changer in both the music and smartphone industry if this rumor turns out to be true. It seems that Apple has developed a new technology that would block iPhones and other Apple devices from being able to take photos or video at concert.

Those of you who enjoy posting your blurry cell phone shots and crappy quality iPhone concert videos to social media should probably enjoy it while you still can, however something tells us that if this technology does see the light of day there are certainly going to be quite a few angry iPhone users. However, don’t you get tired of watching an entire show from the cell phone screen of the person in front of you?  We certainly do!

The new technology that Apple is developing is called “camera detecting infrared signal” and the way it works is simple. A venue would simply be able to internally turn on a signal that would jam/block iPhone cameras from being able to photograph or record concert footage.  Watch as everyone now rushes out to buy an Android phone!  Would this new technology make you think twice about purchasing an iPhone?

We are wondering if this newly developed technology could expand beyond live music events and into other areas where cell phone filming and photographing is considered obnoxious.  Looks like we will have to wait and see, but we are betting this idea will be vetoed before it even gets fully off the ground. Either way, food for thought!

(PCM) A Russian robot that has the ability to both learn and remember has escaped captivity in the facility in which it is currently being housed. The robot has been programmed with artificial intelligence and has the ability to learn. It has been analyzing the layout of the facility and has figured out how to avoid any obstacles and find a clear escape route.

Sadly, the robot may now be headed to the scrap pile because now the researchers are unable to keep the robot from continuing to escape. The first time the robot was able to make a run for it was through a gate that was not properly closed on the property. Mr. Robot created a lot of havoc during the escape as it ended on a main road nearly causing a collision with several vehicles that were forced to swerve out of the way.

The researchers claim that this particular robot is the only one who continually tries to escape,as other robot that were programmed the same way have not made any escape attempts. They have changed the robots artificial intelligence protocol twice, however it does not seem to be working, so they feel the best option would be to completely dismantle the system.

We are sure that Mr.Robot does not realize that the researchers are currently plotting his destruction and demise or perhaps that is why it decided to make a run for it a second time.

(PCM) Firefly Music Festival is celebrating their fifth year anniversary and what a glorious five years it has been!  We have been attending Firefly since its’ inaugural year and it has been amazing to witness the ways in which it continues to grow and expand becoming one of the staples of the summer music festival circuit.

Like a beacon from above, the sun was shining bright to kick-off the weekend and Thursday’s mild rain showers did nothing to dampen the spirits of the over 90,000 fans in attendance for this year’s incredible festival. The crew at both RedFrog and Goldenvoice, who work tirelessly for month to put Firefly together, have truly outdone themselves this year and without a doubt the festival is looking better than ever before!

Firefly5Photo credit: aLive Coverage

Five years marks a huge celebration for Firefly Music Festival and just walking around the grounds taking notice of all the new improvements and added features was breathtaking. There were several fantastic art installations, photo op areas, new (and improved) pathways to cross between stages and most importantly a new drainage system in place to deal with an inclement weather that could have (and thankfully didn’t) arise.

The areas surrounding both the Treehouse Stage and the CoffeeHouse stages have become permanent fixtures on the grounds and the addition of the elevated viewing platform, with super swanky cabanas, in the VIP area  are fantastic additions to the ever expanding festival experience.

2016 also marks the first time that Firefly Music Festival was live streaming thanks to a partnership between Red Frog Events, Yahoo and Toyota. The festival had previously worked with AXS TV in the past for some live streaming, but it is much more seamless this year, so folks at home that couldn’t make it out can see exactly how much fun they are missing.

Firefly2Photo credit: aLive Coverage

During the kick-off press conference for Firefly, Delaware Tourism Director Linda Parkowski commented that Delaware is truly embracing Firefly 2016 and it has been absolutely wonderful to witness so many individuals having a great time in Delaware, many of whom may be visiting for the very first time.

Parkowski went on to say that the age demographic for tourism in Delaware has expanded to ages 25-55 and millennials are now visiting Delaware thanks of course to Firefly and it’s impact.  Governor Jack Markell was also on hand for the press conference and was throughly enjoying spending his weekend at Firefly Music Festival. He was thrilled with all the “great food vendors, amenities, and overall hospitality from the people of Delaware” and added that Firefly will continue to “define Delaware for years to come”.

There were so many performance highlights throughout the four-day festival that we almost don’t know where to begin. While many felt that this year’s line-up was a bit weak compared to some of the heavy hitting headliners from years past such as Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters and Tom Petty, we actually think that the 2016 line-up brought more of an eclectic group of artists together and made for quite an interesting smorgasbord of performances to catch throughout the day.

Firefly4Photo credit: aLive Coverage

Stealing the show this year was undoubtedly, Florence & The Machine, A$AP Rocky and Blink 182. Seeing Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker perform on the festivals Treehouse Stage, snuggled deeply in the woods was an extra special treat. We also thoroughly enjoyed sets from Deadmau5, Tame Imapala, Ludacris (who made up for his missed performance Friday night, but waking us up bright and early on Sunday), Fitz and The Tantrums, Flogging Molly, Saint Motel, The Struts, Gallant, Major Lazer and M83 to name just a few.

We absolutely can’t wait to see what Firefly 2017 will have in-store, as they are always a festival full of good times and surprises! Great job!

Coca-Cola-Swimming-Pool

(PCM) Talk about dedication to a project! A young man and his group of friends decided to fill a 1,500 gallon swimming pool with nothing but Coca-Cola and then take a swim. We don’t really understand why, however they filmed their epic undertaking and the resulting video has gone viral racking up well over 12 million views and counting on Youtube.

The video description claims that they spent weeks purchasing literally thousands of bottles of Coke and even more time opening and pouring in each and every one. And, shhh!, they even snuck some Pepsi in there, roughly about 7% of the pool fill total.

We think that the Coca-Cola swimming pool experiment was created to show the indestructibility of a quite expensive drone, however it appears that more people were freaking out over just how much Coke these guys used and why they would do such a thing.

One YouTube commenter, Matt Paff, broke down the videos expenses saying “Let’s do the math, if it is a 1500 gallon pool, then there are about 5,678 liters of coke. If they spent about a dollar a bottle ( and that is sale price) they spent about $2,839 on coke. If they didn’t have the pool already that another $500. The phantom 4 is $1,319 ( on Amazon)So in all they spent (about) $4,658 dollars. YOUR WELCOME!!!”

Either way, they are making bank now with all the YouTube traffic and our question is first off, how did they keep bugs and other garden pests out of the pool and just how do they plan on cleaning all of this up afterwards!

Switzerland Is Opening A Rather Risque Cafe http://pcmworldnews.com/news/2016/06/switzerland-is-opening-a-rather-risque-cafe/ Sun, 26 Jun 2016 17:54:44 +0000 http://amyth.com/?p=3089 (PCM) There are various types of cafe’s all around the world, however we can bet that none are quite as risque as the one that is about to open it’s doors (or other orifices) in Switzerland. There is already quite a bit of controversy surround the establishment, but thus far it has been given the green light. The very first “fellatio cafe” called FaceGirl will be opening up in Geneva by the end of 2016. Prostitution is legal in Switzerland and sex workers are issued permits by the Swiss government.

(PCM) There are various types of cafe’s all around the world, however we can bet that none are quite as risque as the one that is about to open it’s doors (or other orifices) in Switzerland. There is already quite a bit of controversy surround the establishment, but thus far it has been given the green light. The very first “fellatio cafe” called FaceGirl will be opening up in Geneva by the end of 2016.

Prostitution is legal in Switzerland and sex workers are issued permits by the Swiss government. According to the country’s law, if two or more sex workers are employed by a business, it must be registered as a massage parlor, however, there is no law that states these “massage parlors” cannot serve coffee or other beverages, so that is exactly what FaceGirl has in mind.

The way it works is that a customer comes in pays a flat fee of approximate $70 and places their order for a coffee beverage and a girl of their choice from a Ipad menu. The customer then has a seat at the bar, however it will not be your typical bar set-up, as the customer will then be “serviced” while enjoying their steamy cup of joe. Certainly brings new definition to would you like cream and sugar, right?

A FaceGirl rep claims that they came up with the idea for the cafe from similar Thai establishments and that they expect customers to be in and out of the shop rather quickly, think 5 or 10 minutes, versus other coffee cafes where you can spend a few hours.

Many feel that sex and coffee are a way of life to begin with, however others are not so happy about the cafe opening, as they feel that the men in charge of the project will be the only ones making any profit. Currently the project is a go, however, once it get’s brewing we’ll see how long it lasts.

(PCM) The words Kanye West and controversy always seem to go hand in hand and he is once again stirring the pot with his latest music video for the song “Famous” off his latest album release “The Life Of Pablo”.  Despite the fact that the album has been out since Valentine’s Day, “Famous” is still the only official single and the first track off the album to receive a music video, and a very NSFW one at that, but from Kanye would you expect anything less.

As he recently tweeted, “Can somebody sue me already? #Ill wait”, Kanye already realizes that he could be in hot water for his video’s depicting of several high-profile celebrities in the nude laying on a massive bed together. Many of the naked celebs featured in the video are realistic looking wax figures, however there are definitely a few such as Kanye, himself, his wife Kim Kardashian, singer Rihanna, and Caitlyn Jenner who may actually be real, judging by the bodily movements when taking a closer look at the video.

Other celebrities whose naked likeness is represented are Taylor Swift, Donald Trump, Vouge editor Anna Wintour, Chris Brown, Amber Rose, Ray J and shockingly Bill Cosby. Kanye claims the video, which is only currently available for viewing on Tidal, is a comment on fame and he says that other celebrity friends he shared the video with began complaining because they wanted to “be in the bed”.

Love him or hate him, Kanye always has a very unique and artistic viewpoint on pop culture and is never afraid to push the limits for the sake of art and social commentary. Some celebrities featured in the video have already spoken out about having their nude likeness splayed out in the video. While, Chris Brown was jokingly complaining about his “plumber’s crack”, Taylor Swift is said to be horrified by her depiction in the video.  Other celebrities have yet to publicly comment.

You can see a shortened snippet of the video below, keep in mind that it is incredibly NSFW and contains both implied and actual nudity.

The lipsticks were created by Chinese beauty company Kailijumei and feature a clear lipstick that is infused with jelly, gold specks and a lovely little flower placed right in the center. They are almost too pretty to use, but just because of their gorgeous design, it doesn’t mean they don’t function as an awesome lipstick as well.

The Kailijummei lipsticks are body temperature activated and give your lips a sweet glossy pink tint which then turns a bit darker depending on the temperature and your mood. The Kailijumei website is completely sold out of these amazing lipsticks, however with a little digging around you can find them for sale on Ebay, however the company warns consumers to be careful about cheap knock-offs or expired product that could pose certain health dangers.

Definitely try and nab a few of these while they are hot and definitely beware if trying to score a bargain online!

You may recognize the song, as it went viral as part of an electro-house score that Ryan Skyy produced for Marco Marco’s LA and NY fashion shows after the first plus-size male model ever featured during fashion week, Dexter Mayfield, strutted down the runway to this track and lit up social media and the fashion world

The music video features vocals by voguing MC Jack Mizrahi and is directed by Edgar Dela Torre. The video pays homage to late 80s and early 90s nostalgia and voguing street culture, which has long been an underlining influence of dance and pop culture.

 Plus-size male model, Dexter Mayfield, also makes an appearance in the video, along with Javier Ninja from the House of Ninja, considered to be the top voguer in the world, alongside voguers Mercury Xtravaganza, Carlos Irizarry, and Eric Sanchez. Also featured in the video is Eden the Doll, a transgender model from LA. Shot throughout parts of LA and Venice Beach, “Nerve” features central themes of applauding courage, standing up and not being afraid, being unbothered, having that intestinal fortitude, loving yourself, closing the closet door behind you and never letting anyone put you back in.

Put your vougeing shoes on and enjoy!

Pet-Cemetery

(PCM) It is a horror story come to life for individuals who have buried their beloved pets in the pet cemetery at the Delaware SPCA. The Stanton branch of the Delaware SPCA has recently closed down their Stanton location and are in the process of making a sale on the large 21-acre property, however there is one major issue. There are over 1,000 pets and animals buried on the property which is where owners believed was to be their pet’s final resting place.

Due to the proposed construction and renovation of the property, the SPCA told several pet owners that they had only until the end of the month to remove their pet’s headstones and if they choose, exhume the remains and relocate them to another location. Yes, that is as gruesome as it sounds. Already, several individuals have visited the property and made an attempt to dig up their animals, however due to the amount of time that has passed and other external conditions some of the animals buried in the cemetery can not be located.

In fact, even the Delaware police force cannot located the remains of “Captain”, the county’s very first police dog. Also buried in the cemetery are the remains of “Igloo” a bear from the local Brandywine Zoo, a goat named “Minnie Pearl” and a pair of poodles named “Brigitte and Babette”. Here’s where things take an even creepier and more problematic turn for the Delaware SPCA, as it has also been reported that there may in fact be human remains buried on the property as well.

It seems that a woman named Miss Ligon had her ashes interred on the property so that her final resting place would be near her beloved dog, a Border Collie named “Lady”. Miss Ligon was a nationally recognized sculptor and an avid dog lover. When “Lady” passed away in 1973 she was buried in the the Delaware SPCA pet cemetery, according to a pet cemetery contract that was unearth by the Delaware News Journal. The New Journal also went on to uncover notes from a 1980 board meeting which approved Miss Ligons’ ashes to be interred in the cemetery.

The Delaware SPCA claims to have“no knowledge of any human remains on our Stanton property”, however most of the evidence points to Miss Ligon being buried alongside her pet, as she had no living relatives at the time of her death in 1980. Pet cemeteries are not regulated by federal or state governments because animal remains are considered “solid waste” under Delaware law. But human cemeteries fall under the state’s authority and that could be a game changer for any plans the Delaware SPCA had for selling the property.  If it turns out that a human is buried on the property, the SPCA would need to register that specific plot as a cemetery and follow a new set of protocol for exhuming the remains and relocating them.

Individuals who have been visiting the property for more information and to make an attempt at relocating their pets were being turned away by the guard on-site and told to contact the Delaware SPCA board or Georgetown location by phone. Thus far the Delaware SPCA has not returned any phone calls or commented about the issue, which has been absolutely heartbreaking for pet owners.

There is currently an online petition beginning to pick up steam, as pet owners want answers and would like to prevent the sale and save the building and surrounding pet cemetery. It has already reached over 2,000 signatures and continues to grow. Many pet owners who have buried their animals at the Delaware SPCA pet cemetery also claim that the Delaware SPCA is in breach of contract, as they have signed documents that prove “the Delaware SPCA guarantees continued use and upkeep of the grave site for the period of twenty-five (25) years.” That particular contract was signed in 1998, however the shelter stopped the pet burial process about 10 years ago.

In the immortal words of The Ramones:

(PCM) Two young men who reside in the area of Phoenix, Arizona came up with the brilliant plan to set off every firework in their local area Walmart store. We are guessing they were bored, however they are going to have to deal with a whole lot more boredom, as they are being charged with a class 2 felony, which is just below murder and will be most likely spending the next several years behind bars.

The actions of this pair put a huge scare on Walmart customers at the time of the incident as everyone who was shopping in the store began to run for their lives. While there were no actual mortars or large fireworks set off, as it is only legal in the state of Arizona to sell poppers, sparklers and smoke snakes, it was still enough to cause significant damage to the store and could have potentially caused a much bigger fire if things had gotten any further out of control.

The duo could be facing up to 20 years behind bars and countless fines. Another customer filmed the incident, although we are not exactly sure why he was casually filming the video below rather than fleeing to safety. The duo responsible for setting off the fireworks were also captured on store surveillance cameras in the act and looking back to admire their job.

There is also a recipe for doughnuts as well, because who doesn’t want a little dessert after dinner. The doughnut recipe comes from  the 1805 American edition of Hannah Glasse’s cookbook, “The Art of Cookery Made Plain and Easy.”

(PCM) Anymore it seems like we could be celebrating National Selfie Day everyday just judging by the sheer number of them that are posted on various social media platforms all day, every day. There is no doubt that the invention of the #selfie has forever changed the landscape of pop culture and photography.

Many feel that posting too many selfies has turned us into a much more narcissistic society, while others have the opinion that they all in good fun.  However, researchers who have studied the selfie phenomenon have some bad news for all the selfie lovers out there, as they claim studies show the popular pose actually makes people appear less attractive. When asked to compare a selfie photo and one taken by another individual, people who viewed the selfie image found the subjects to be less likeable and more narcissistic,in addition to being less attractive.  Try telling that to the Kardashian family, the reigning Queen’s of the selfie kingdom.

Either way, the selfie is certainly here to stay and to celebrate #NationalSelfieDay, we are including a look at the five most famous selfies of all time:

  1. The Ellen DeGeneres Oscar Selfie


    This selfie, taken at the 2014 Academy Awards featuring various A-list celebrities, quickly became the most retweeted Tweet of all time!

  2. The Pope Francis Selfie


    This selfie proves that Pope Francis is one of the more progressive Pope’s, as you can see he was a willing participant in the selfie.

  3. The Naked Kim Kardashian Selfie


    There was no way the reigning queen of selfies would fail to make this list.

  4. The Beyonce Photobomb Selfie
    Beyonce-Selfie
    Beyonce masters the perfect photobomb on a fan who was snapping an image during her concert!  Winning, all the way around!
  5. The Kelly Nash baseball selfie

    Most dangerous selfie ever. That happened.

    A photo posted by live in love (@kellynash) on


    That moment when reporter Kelly Nash is about to get knocked out by a flying baseball.

And for good measure we have to throw a nod to the first recorded “selfie” in history taken by Robert Cornelius snapped in 1839:

Robert-Cornelius

(PCM) Allentown, Pennsylvania high school student Tayler Michelle Gray has gained internet fame after she hilariously walked straight out of her high school graduation ceremony after being handed her diploma. Gray posted a video of her walkout to her Twitter account where she can be seen walking up to the stage, taking the diploma and then walking straight out the doors of Allentown’s PPL Center where the graduation ceremony was taking place.

Gray was attending Parkland High School as a way to finish up her degree while she was also attending Lehigh Career and Technical Institute to train as a nursing assistant. She recently began working at a home for seniors, so her diploma was more of a formality.

Gray claims that she felt no real reason to stay for the rest of the ceremony, as she wanted to spend more time with her family. She says told Buzzfeed News that she “didn’t want to sit with all the people. That’s a lot of traffic to sit in after” as well.

You tell em’ girl! The internet has fallen in love with Gray’s rather ballsy move calling her a “Queen” and “GOAT” meaning “Greatest of All Time”! Some are criticizing Gray’s decision to leave claiming it is disrespectful to the other graduates. Either way, Gray has proved she has officially graduated to boss status!

(PCM) We are deeply saddened to learn that 27-year old actor Anton Yelchin has died as a result of a freak car accident which occurred at his Los Angeles, CA home. Yelchin is best known for his role as Chekov in the recent J.J. Abrams helmed “Star Trek” film franchise.

Authorities are calling Yelchin’s death a freak accident during which the young actor was pinned against a brick pillar and a security fence after his car slid backwards after he had stepped outside of the vehicle on his property around 1:10am. The incident caused Yelchin’s body immense trauma, which then led to his death.

The authorities went on the say that they believe Yelchin was on his way out to meet some friends for a rehearsal, when it appears that he stepped out of his vehicle for some reason and the freak incident occurred. When Yelchin failed to show up to the rehearsal his friends became worried and discovered his body behind the car when the arrived at his home.  Police did not say if the vehicle was running at the time his body was discovered.

Yelchin’s family was notified by the friends that discovered his body. Many of Yelchin’s “Star Trek” co-stars have begun to express their condolences including actor Chris Pine who tweeted “Devastated to hear about the brilliant Anton Yelchin. He was thoughtful, kind, and gifted. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.”

Yelchin will be seen in next in “Star Trek Beyond” which will hit theaters on July 22, 2016. Our sincere condolences go out to Anton Yelchin’s family and friends during this incredibly difficult time.

(PCM) We could definitely come up with quite a few more important ways for the Michigan police department to spend their day other than spending 11 hours having a stand-off with an empty home.

Yes, that’s correct. After receiving a call about a domestic disturbance that took place in the home where a man and his wife were going through a bitter divorce, police special response teams moved in because they received a tip that the man has barricade himself in the home only to discover after an 11 hour stand-off that the home was in fact empty.

The man had already left the house before police arrived. Way to get your facts straight! Police even went as far as to send in a canister of tear gas and block of several nearby streets for the duration of the stand-off before coming to the realization that they were fighting a battle against a completely empty home.

Oops! We just can’t believe it took them 11 hours to finally make the decision to enter the home and come up empty-handed!

(PCM) We love a good viral video, especially when it involves a celebrity. Let’s all take a moment and appreciate the hilarity that is pop star Justin Bieber falling through a trap door on stage. Seriously, we must have watched this like a dozen times and it still doesn’t get old!

The incident occurred during Bieber’s concert in Canada as part of his “Purpose” World Tour, when he was attempting to adjust his incredibly baggy pants/skirt combo and wasn’t watching where he was walking.

Bieber was not seriously hurt in the incident and was able to immediately hop right back on the stage. He joked with the audience that he had reflexes like a cat and was luckily able to land on his feet.  Either way it was pretty hilarious! Check it out below:

The competition is fierce, as some dad’s have managed to stack as many as 17 cheerio’s on top of their baby’s sleeping heads. Some dad’s are accusing each other of using glue to hold together the stacks of Cheerio’s, but all in all the challenge has been in good fun and spirit. Many also claim that if you lick the Cheerio’s before stacking it helps them stick together or using flavored Apple Cinnamon Cheerio’s assist with making the challenge a bit easier.

Either way it is completely adorable and amazing to see dad’s bonding with their babies just in time for Father’s Day!
