Super Bowl Ads Make Statements (Video)

#maddnews #cherrios #superbowl

 

The 2014 Super Bowl advertisements has been launched before Sunday, and its already started a debate about race, sex, and many other things. General Mills is set to air a new Cheerios ad featuring a biracial family during the 2014 Super Bowl. The first ad resulted in such racist vitriol that YouTube closed the comments under the video, and General Mills pulled the video from the site.

The new ad, titled “Gracie”, does not stray far from the comfort zone of the first ad. The actress who plays Gracie’s mom is pregnant with Gracie’s brother.The video is a warm and funny family scenario, where the daughter realizes she is no longer the center of attention, and have came offers a dad, one way out! A PUPPY!

A major controversy has already happen before the commercial has even aired. A MSNBC staffer was fired for tweeting:

“Maybe the right-wing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/biracial family.”

From NPR.org:

Nice head fake there, Cheerios. For a second it looked like the parents might talk to their daughter about the controversy surrounding their last appearance — and maybe even have a Conversation About Race In America. In an ad. For Cereal. During the Super Bowl. (Could you imagine

MADD FACTOR: In 2014 , people are still secretly holding reservations about race and sex in the United States.  This is very sad, and really un-call-for, I am hopful this ad does Cheerios well. 

 

George Zimmerman Agrees to Celeb Boxing Match

CAN YOU BELEIVE IT? The moment you have been waiting for the past year and a half, especially Trayvon Martin dad!  Now’s your chance to kick George Zimmerman‘s ass with zero legal repercussions — he just agreed to a celebrity boxing match … and he says he’ll fight ANYONE … even black people.

TMZ reports: Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman threw down the challenge, offering George money to step in the ring.  Now here’s the kicker … the opponent has NOT been selected.

We’re told George is open to fighting a black person, but the promoter is not discriminating, telling us “We’re not looking at it as a race thing … We haven’t discussed purple, yellow, white, black.”

Lately George has been more interested in boxing than guns … regularly training in the ring.

If you’d like to throw your hat in the ring for the March 1 match, email fightgeorge@hotmail.com

Al Roker Blasts Georgia Governor and Mayor

NBC Weather Anchor Al Roker

Al Roker and Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal have a beef that is being played out in the national media and Twitterverse. Atlanta was hit with a snow and ice storm that shutdown  the city and had a cascade effect on transportation in the southeast. At issue is the level of preparation of Georgia agencies and the level of response. Georgia failed miserably on both aspects. During a press conference on Tuesday, Deal directly contradicted the head of  Georgia Emergency Management Agency about when it was clear an emergency was imminent.

Al Roker took exception to what the governor said.

“The mayor and the governor got on TV and said “Oh, this wasn’t expected,’ and that’s not true.  “We were talking about this Monday that this was going to happen. They took a gamble; they didn’t want to pre-treat the road. I don’t think they wanted to spend the money and do what they needed to … this was poor planning on the mayor’s  part and the governor’s part pure and simple … the roads are gridlocked and it’s a shame.”

Roker went on to write  an open letter to Atlanta meteorologists. In that letter  he stated once again it was not the forecasters but the officials who were to blame for not understanding the weather advisory system.

“One observation that has become apparent to me is that the public and perhaps some policy officials may not fully understand that a Watch, Warning, or Advisory has very specific meanings. They are not just generic ‘hey, be on alert’ or ‘hey, get ready’ warnings,” Roker wrote.

Because of the lack of preparedness thousands of people were stuck sleeping in their cars overnight and children had to sleep in schools across the Atlanta metro and outlying areas. The last time an ice storm of this magnitude occurred was in 2011, when Atlanta was shut down for four days. After the 2011 storm, promises were made that the city and state would be more prepared for future storms. Despite these promises and the purchase of  new snowplows by the city of Atlanta, it still was not enough.

Baby Born on Icy Atlanta Interstate (Snow Day Gone Wrong)

#roads #atlanta #snow

SNOW DAY GONE WRONG   has impacted everyone, even the unborn Atlanta citizens. While  couple inches of snow and ice have brought Atlanta commuters to a halt, one baby girl decided she just couldn’t wait.

 The AJC  reports: Her parents were on the way to the hospital, but couldn’t make it fast enough due to treacherous road conditions, according to the Sandy Springs Police Department.

Instead, the baby’s father and a traffic officer helped the mother deliver the baby — inside a car on I-285.

Mom and baby were fine, and paramedics were dispatched to the area to take the family to the hospital, police said.

SNOW DAY GONE WRONG IN GEORGIA

#snowday #atlanta #weather #wsbtv

snow day

It seems like De Ja Vu  for Atlanta,Georgia, in 2011 the city was shut down for a week. Now, less than five years later, the highways are in gridlock for almost 24 hours,, children  are stranded in school, drivers sleeping in stores, cars pile up on the side of the road, and social media is a buzz about the lack of preparation by the Governor of Georgia and DOT. Winter Storm Leon brought Atlanta to a virtual standstill , as thousands of commuters clogged snowy roadways desperately trying to get home.

gridlockga

When a dusting of snow triggers an epic traffic jam, stranding motorists and school kids on interstates for hours, there’s something very wrong with this picture.

Two inches of snow isn’t supposed to turn highways into campsites. Backups aren’t supposed to last all day, through the night, and into the following morning.

And yet, here they we are — hundreds of motorists across Georgia — still hunched over in their cars Wednesday morning, feeling the aftereffects of a snow shower that hit the states more than 12 hours earlier (Fox 8 Cleveland)

The traffic delays were a shock to many – one WSB-TV anchor called the situation “bizarre” – because the city’s schools and government offices chose not to close early in advance of the storm.

After thousands of commuters flooded the highways at once, many Atlanta motorists spent hours stranded in their cars on the interstate and some even ditched their vehicles on the side of the road and walked.

BfGF0huCQAA5RUU

At least 50 shelters have opened across the state to provide shelter for people stranded or gridlocked on the roads. Home Depot stores also announced that they are staying open Tuesday night to provide shelter for stranded motorists.  A Facebook group dubbed SnowedOutAtlanta, meant to connect stranded motorists with people willing to put them up for the night, had thousands of members by Tuesday night. While sub groups for various parts of the city was created by Wednesday morning.

Some Facebook Posts from the group is dishearting ..

6:30 a.m. “Anyone near six flags parkway on I-20 have food or water? My 1 1/2 year old twins just woke up, and we will have to figure something out with that!”-April Burgess

Politicians actually have the nerve to try to delete posts from stranded drivers, complaining about the poor response…
ADMINS be aware that the politicians are trying to become admins in this group so that they can “delete unneeded posts”.
Do NOT allow them to-Michelle Sollicito

 

With a high of only 36 degrees forecasted for Metro Atlanta today, abandoned vehicles and icy roadways will continue to snag travel Wednesday and  make it difficult for stranded motorists to get home.

“I’m eight months pregnant and have my 3-year-old with me,” Atlanta-area resident Katie Norman Horne said on “SnowedOutAtlanta,” a Facebook page set up to help stranded motorists.

“We’ve been in the car for over 12 hours. We are fine on gas but is anyone near on the road and might happen to have any food or some water?

There have been 940 confirmed accidents in Atlanta, more than 100 of them involving injuries, the Georgia public safety commissioner said.

Everyone had been warned. Atlanta was expecting 1-2 inches. But people did not heed the forecast.

In the morning, when the snow had not arrived, people went to work and school, like nothing was coming.

Then it did….

Motorists panicked at around the same time in the afternoon. They clogged the streets en masse just as they began icing over.

In the end 2-3.5 inches hit central Georgia. That may not sound like much, but it’s usually how much snow falls in the region in a whole year, said CNN meteorologist Taylor Ward.

Motorists thought they could deal with it. They couldn’t. The spin-outs began. (Fox 8 Cleveland)

Vin Diesel Dances with Beyonce’s Drunk In Love

Vin Diesel

I was so concerned about Vin Diesel! He is either bored, have a lot of time on his hands, or just Gay Happy!

LOL!

He mentioned to viewers that he received some good news from Universal that his movie Riddick was getting a sequel after it landed at number one on the DVD charts, and to celebrate he decided to throw on some Katy Perry and make a ‘thank you’ video for the fans. With “Dark Horse” cranked up to the fullest, Vin flexed his muscles and got up close and personal with the camera looking like he the music was setting him free.

However, the best part of the video came when the music transition into Beyonce and Jay Z’s “Drunk in Love.” Vin was feeling himself, so he attempted to bust his own version of the ‘surfboard,’ which was down right HILARIOUS!LOl#smdh

He also tried to hit them Beyonce vocals!

Who are the two men behind Daft Punk?

With everyone still buzzing about the Grammy Awards, Daft Punk one of the big winners of the 2014 Grammys, just so happened to be a pair of French robots. The duo won Best Album of the Year and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical for their game-changing “Random Access Memories” album, and Record of the Year and Best Pop/Duo Performance, for their summer jam “Get Lucky.

But who are they?? ” .

 

Here are your answers to the mystery of Daft Punk, the men in the space helmets.

Q: Why did Daft Punk decide to disguise themselves?

A: Let’s let the robots explain (via Rolling Stone):

Thomas Bangalter (silver robot): “We’re interested in the line between fiction and reality, creating these fictional personas that exist in real life” — and a way to enfold Daft Punk’s music within a tradition of flamboyant pop theatricality that includes “Kraftwerk and Ziggy Stardust and KISS; people thought the helmets were marketing or something, but for us it was sci-fi glam.”

Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (gold robot): “We’re not performers, we’re not models — it would not be enjoyable for humanity to see our features … but the robots are exciting to people.”

But perhaps the best benefit of wearing helmets is the ability to send people of the same body types to appear as them. For their 2006 art film, “Electroma,” two production assistants, who just happened to fit Daft Punk’s leather suits, filled in for the robots during filming. For all we know, Daft Punk could’ve been watching the Grammys from the comfort of their own homes!

Q: How did the helmets come about?

A: With the idea of anonymity in mind, the French electronic music duo wore a series of cheap Halloween-quality masks at performances before taking on their robot personas. An artist friend created the now-iconic robot helmets for a 2001 photo shoot. They were originally fitted with wigs, which the pair promptly ditched.

The matte white helmets with gold visors that Daft Punk wore at the Grammys was the first time in their entire career they’ve changed the original helmet designs.

Q: What does Daft Punk look like under the helmets?

A: As much as we’d like to believe that Grammy winners Daft Punk are complicated pieces of futuristic technology under their stylish helmets, they’re actually a pair of regular-looking French dudes. Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter were photographed a bit in their early careers when they were briefly in a rock band called Darlin’.

As for what they look like in real life? Here’s a very very old photo of the duo, likely in the early ’90s if not earlier:

Prince Sues 22 Blogger for 22 Million Over Live Bootleg (UPDATED)

Madd News Prince sues bloggers

Madd News  Prince sues bloggers

Prince is hitting the road,  and he is not making any jokes about anyone bootlegging his music and live performances. You may want to think twice before recording any of the shows and posting tracks online.

Spin reports: Prince has filed a copyright lawsuit against 22 different users of Facebook and Google’s Blogger platform. And although he doesn’t know the identity of all the defendants, he’s demanding each pay $1 million in damages.

According to the 21-page complaint filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco (viaAntiquiet), the defendants “engage in massive infringement and bootlegging of Prince’s material.” The lawsuit targets Dan Chodera, Karina Jindrova, and 20 anonymous defendants. Chodera and Jindrova allegedly operated a no-longer-online Facebook account that posted a bunch of bootleg Prince videos. The other defendants — “Does” 1 through 20 — are accused of similar infractions, such as pointing to a 1983 Chicago set from WorldofBootleg.blogspot.com. Hey, we’d like to hear that one.

Prince asks for a jury trial, which, though highly unlikely, would have to make for some fascinating courtroom drama. In addition to the $22 million total in damages, Prince wants the defendants permanently blocked from infringing on his copyrights. He also wants them to forfeit any money they may have made from his music — with interest — and to return any “unlawful materials” to their rightful Purple custody. Oh, and they’d better cover his lawyers’ fees, too. The defendants haven’t commented publicly yet, but it’s theoretically possible they thought they were actually sharing concerts by Phish, right? Only, like, four letters off!

UPDATE:

TMZ REPORTS:Call him the artist formerly known as “Plaintiff” … ’cause TMZ has learned Prince has officiallyDROPPED his $22 MILLION lawsuit against 22 “bootleggers” who allegedly posted footage of his concerts online.

Prince has only filed the original lawsuit less than 2 weeks ago … going after 22  anonymous bloggers (for $1 mil-a-piece) who posted concert footage on Facebook and other websites without Prince’s permission.

But after news of the lawsuit went public … it only took a few days before Prince decided to end his crusade on the bootleggers.

TMZ has obtained legal documents filed in federal court in California to dismiss his lawsuit … but it’s without prejudice, which means he could refile the suit if he feels like it. .

We reached out to Prince’s lawyer to find out why P had the change of heart — so far, no word back.

Michael B Jordan On Board for Fantastic Four

 

Michael B Jordan Fantastic Four

After months of speculation, we finally have some definitive information on FOX’s “Fantastic Four” reboot. As first noticed by a site called Acting Auditions, actor Michael B. Jordan is officially on board the project, reteaming with director Josh Trank (“Chronicle”). In addition, we also have our first rundown of the revised origin for the Marvel superhero team and plot for the movie.But is that the whole story?

First, a little bit of background: Fantastic Four is one of the two properties, along with X-Men, that are licensed by FOX, rather than sitting neatly in the Disney stable. Though the studio has already made one unsuccessful go at the franchise, the movies need to stay in production or the rights revert back to Marvel Studios. Hence a reboot of the property, which has been in development for several years. Jordan has long been rumored to be taking on the part of Johnny Storm, a.k.a. The Human Torch in the movie, but nothing else has been confirmed… Until now.

The Plot Thickens Apollo Nida Accomplice Speaks Out

Apollo Nida Accomplice Gayla St. Julien

As reported earlier,  The Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member Phaedra Parks’ husband Apollo Nida has been arrested and charged with bank fraud and identity theft, according to a complaint filed by the U.S. District Attorney’s office in Atlanta Thursday.

Now new details have emerged via official court documents obtained by the Atlanta Journal- Constitution. In the documents, Nida’s apparent accomplice is identified as a Fairburn, Ga., woman named Gayla St. Julien. St. Julien was arrested in September 2013 after being investigated by the U.S. Secret Service’s  counterfeit and U.S. Treasury Check Squad.

In a written affidavit and agent claimed that Nida created fake companies, including a fake auto dealership named Ferrari Autohaus, to gain access to databases to find individuals to rip off. St. Julien implicated Nida as the brains behind the shameless money schemes and told authorities she was his “right hand b—.” The fellow ripoff artist alleges that she and Nida had been working together since 2009. Nida was imprisoned from 2004 to 2009 for breaking federal racketeering laws related to auto title fraud. He married attorney Phaedra Parks who represented him during his trial, later that year.

St. Julien says she deposited fraudulent checks, stole U.S. Treasury checks and stole retirement checks issued to Delta Airlines employees. There is also evidence that the twosome created two fake debt collection agencies and pocketed close to nearly $3 million in stolen funds.

After St. Julien was arrested, she worked with authorities to tape conversations with Nida in which he explained many of his schemes. Police later obtained physical evidence of his alleged crimes, including a bank debit card and laptop computer.

A preliminary hearing is set for Feb. 12, 2014.

Puff Puff Pass says Phillip Morris Marijuna Cigarettes

marijuana-cigarettes-300x177

The recent Colorado State law legalization of Marijuana has sparked much debate of changing the national ban on Marijuana.  Phillip Morris, the world’s biggest cigarette producer, announced recently that they will join the marijuana legalization bandwagon and start producing marijuana cigarettes.

The new product will be marketed under the brand “Marlboro M”, the cigarettes will be made available for sale through marijuana-licensed outlets in the state of Colorado, and the state of Washington when it becomes commercially legal there later this year.

Serafin Norcik, Phillip Morris’ Sr. Vice President for Marketing said in an interview that the company has been high on the idea of marketing cannabis, and has been monitoring the market for some time. It was only when the recent legalization initiatives — winning in Colorado and Washington — that they finally made the decision to take a leap of faith.

Norcik added that they have begun contacting former drug lords in Mexico and Paraguay, currently the largest marijuana-producing countries in the world, for the possibility of setting up a distribution ring across the North and South American continents, to streamline the supply lines.

Since only tobacco products are currently banned in advertisements and promotions in the United States, Phillip Morris also has set aside a huge $15 billion advertising budget just to promote the new “Marlboro M” and are now negotiating with major networks and publishers, to start marketing the product to consumers in the beginning of 2015.

Norcik also revealed that a big initial push is planned around January next year, and have acquired most of the ad airtime for Superbowl XLIX. However, since marijuana will be legal only in Colorado and Washington during the 2015 Superbowl, all the ads will be blacked out in all other States and will only show a static “M” logo with smoke blowing in the background, for the duration of the ad.

Phillip Morris shares hit an all-time high on the marijuana news and shot up to $998.00 from $83.03 just a few hours after the announcement went public.

Dinesh D’Souza indicted for violating election law

Dinesh Souza Madd News

Dinesh Souza Madd News

The conservative filmmaker behind a hit anti-Obama documentary was indicted Thursday night on charges he violated federal campaign laws, in what a close colleague is calling a “selective prosecution.”

Dinesh D’Souza, whose “2016: Obama’s America” is the second-highest grossing political documentary of all time, will appear in U.S. District Court in New York Friday.

The indictment states the 52-year-old best-selling author and activist will be charged with one count of illegally donating to a Senate campaign and one count of causing false statements to be made to authorities in connection with the contributions

The indictment, filed in U.S. District Court in New York, accuses D’Souza of “willfully and knowingly” surpassing the $5,000 limit for individual campaign donations by directing others to donate to the campaign of Wendy Long, who unsuccessfully challenged New York senator Kirsten Gillibrand in 2012. According to the document, D’Souza and his then-wife, Dixie, each contributed $5,000 to Long’s campaign, and he reimbursed others for $20,000 he had encouraged them to donate.

The indictment is just the latest in a tangle of personal and professional difficulties that swarmed around D’Souza at what was arguably the height of his success: the popularity of his 2012 anti-Obama documentary 2016: Obama’s America. The film, which was released in the summer of 2012 and became a slow-burn hit with conservatives in the run-up to the presidential election, earned over $33 million at the box office and was the highest-grossing documentary since 1982. But just a couple of months into the film’s promotion, D’Souza was out of a job: he resigned his lucrative position as president of the King’s College, a small evangelical Christian school in Manhattan, over repost hat he was engaged to a 29-year-old woman while still being married to his wife of 20 years.

 

 

 

Miami Police may have lied about Justin Bieber Arrest

(Photo by Bradley Kanaris/Getty Images)
(Photo by Bradley Kanaris/Getty Images)

Was the Miami police trying to capitalize off of Justin Bieber’s fame?  Is the Miami police still a shady law enforcement agency? It is not surprising that the Miami Police department is accused of fudging  the police report.  This leaves gigantic hole in the case against Justin Bieber. It seems that  the singer had next to NO alcohol in his system yet cops at the scene said he reeked of alcohol.

TMZ reports: We have now confirmed Justin’s actual blood alcohol level … it was .014 — next to nothing.  Legal intoxication is .08.  Law enforcement sources told TMZ Thursday Bieber had a .04 …  but we’ve now confirmed that is NOT true.  He had a .014 — an enormous difference.

Someone Justin’s size would probably have higher than a .014 with a single beer.  So the question … how could cops say they were overpowered by the smell of alcohol?

According to the police report … the arresting officer was leaning into the car, talking to Justin just after the stop and the cop says, “I immediately smelled an odor of alcohol eminating [sic] from the driver’s breath.”

The police report goes on … Justin was then arrested and taken to a holding facility, where another officer said he smelled “… the odor of an alchol bev on his breath.”

Justin insisted at the scene he was NOT drunk.  Cops say he failed his field sobriety test.

Sources connected to the case tell us … this could well come down to a credibility case, with Justin’s people accusing cops of lying.  Fact is … the Miami Beach PD has had credibility issues in the past.  One law enforcement source confided in us … “That police force has had a zillion problems.”

Justin Bieber Arrested in Miami (Mug Shot)

ku-xlargeJustin Bieber looks happy now, until the reality of the jail sentence and time away from the spot light sets in.

According to the police report — obtained by TMZ — cops approached Bieber’s car and they instantly realized he reeked of alcohol and had bloodshot eyes.  He had a “stupor” look on his face.

The police report says … Bieber was defiant from the get-go, yelling at the cops, “Why the f**k are you doing this?”  He also yelled, “What the f**k did I do.  Why did you stop me?”

When the officer tried to perform a routine pat down, Bieber said, “I ain’t got no f**king weapons, why do you have to search me?  What the f**k is this about?”  Bieber claimed he wasn’t drunk and coming back from recording music.  That’s not true, because we knew he was at a club.

From ABC News:

Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez told the Miami Herald that Bieber was under the influence of drugs and incoherent. He had his hands in his pockets and resisted arrest without violence, the chief said, adding that the singer didn’t have a driver’s license.

The musician’s entourage had apparently used their cars to block traffic on Pine Tree Drive at 26th Street, a residential area, at 4:30 a.m., creating a drag strip for Bieber, who was in a Lamborghini, the newspaper reported.

Bieber was at the police station early this morning and was to be taken to county jail for processing, the Herald reported.

MADD FACTOR: JUSTIN NEEDS TO GET IT TOGETHER! – Why is he allowed to be speeding and doing drugs in another city? Where is his manager?  This is sad!
