Darren Deon Vann

43-year-old Darren Deon Vann, has been arrested on suspicion of murder, in the deaths of 7 women. Their bodies were found in a motel and an abandon house in Indiana. Vann, a convicted sex offender, solicited prostitutes from an online site, in order to murder them. It is not clear if the women who were murdered were actually prostitutes. 

Afrikka Hardy

One of Vann's victims is 19-year-old Afrikka Hardy. The discovery of her body by police, led to Vann's confession regarding an additional six victims. Three of the additional six victims are 35-year-old Anith Jones, 28-year-old Teaira Batey, 36-year-old Kristine Williams. Vann murdered young women, who had their lives ahead of them.

Woman Busted In The Chimney Of Man She Met Online Who Broke Up With Her (Video)

Some people have met online, fallen in love and gotten married. Some people meet online, date, break-up, then get stalked like it's nobody's business. Case in point, a California woman, was rescued and arrested after getting stuck in the chimney of a home belonging to a man she met online and began dating.


Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa

30-year-old Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa, tried to break into the home of a man named Lawrence, whom she briefly dated after meeting him on the internet.  Lawrence told police this was not the first time she had tried to break into his home. Psychologists research papers and books concur that an individual showing up unannounced at the home of someone they are romantically interested in and trying to gain entry is a form of stalking.

Chief Keef Dropped From Multi-Million Dollar Record Deal With Interscope

Chief Keef

19-year-old trouble prone Chicago rapper, Chief Keef, real name Keith Cozart, has been unceremoniously dropped from his multi-million dollar record deal with Interscope Records, without all the terms and payments of the deal being fulfilled. Keef and Interscope have been having disagreements about the direction of his new album and career overall.

Cozart has had many run-ins with the law and spent time in juvenile detention centers. He recorded a few singles and released them to the internet, which garnered a significant amount of attention in the rap world. He was signed to Interscope Records on a deal thought to be worth up to $7,000,000. He was given a $1,000,000 advance to record his 2012 debut CD "Finally Rich." Keef had a few successful singles, but his debut CD flopped, selling approximately 200,000 copies over its main shelf life.

In addition to the $1,000,000 advance, very little of which was used to produce his low budget CD and videos, Keef earned money from doing concerts in clubs and small venues. However, Keef experienced money problems. For nearly two-years the Judiciary Report warned about Keef's wild spending and that it would lead to trouble. Then he was evicted from his home. Keef chose to rent and not buy, which the Judiciary Report advised against. He also purchased several sports cars, another move the Judiciary Report warned against.

Now that he has been dropped from his record deal, which the Judiciary Report knew was coming, he is going to face greater financial issues. Keef needs to sell most of the cars and put his remaining cash into buying a home, via mortgage, opening a savings account and looking into legitimate, legal ways to start a small business to generate revenues, as the music and sports industries are not a sure thing. It never is for anyone.


U.S. Health System In Need Of Overhaul

The U.S. health care system is in need of massive overhaul. Having seen and experienced it up close due, I can state, there are many problems that need to be resolved and areas where it can be improved. Previously, the Judiciary Report suggested the idea of a medical database listing all the prescriptions issued in America to assist doctors in preventing addicts from doctor shopping to obtain large quantities of pharmaceutical drugs to get high. 

In the July 21, 2009 article Celebrity Prescriptions, the Judiciary Report called for a comprehensive drug computer system to prevent the abuse of prescription meds. 4-months later on November 29, 2009, the New York Times wrote of scientists echoing the same sentiments, in calling for a drug database (Scientists Call For Drug Database ).

After experiences with the medical system this year, the Judiciary Report is of the belief, the U.S. government needs to start a comprehensive, password protected medical record database for all patients in America. Conditions can be cross-referenced all over the country, aiding doctors and scientists in effectively treating patients. Outbreaks can be tracked, monitored and addressed to save lives.

 In attempting to see a neurologist and orthopedist in reference to nerve damage to one of my legs (that can't be seen externally) and a repairable back injury, I was given referrals to different physicians (in short, I need surgery). 

The doctors I was referred to did not have my medical records and it caused a mess of wasted time and money. If there was one comprehensive medical records database, it would save millions of people in America time and money and cut health care costs. It's also a sensible, practical medical management solution.

Does The Botched Handling Of The Ebola Virus Outbreak In America Mean The CDC Will Have To Prepare For All Diseases

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Tom Frieden questioned in Congress

The Ebola virus outbreak in America is causing concern among the general public. Liberian tourist, Thomas Eric Duncan, is the first person to die of Ebola in America, after visiting family in Dallas, Texas. Two nurses that treated Duncan, Nina Pham and Amber Vison, have since tested positive for Ebola.

Thomas Eric Duncan

In the wake of the viral outbreak, the U.S. government, via the Center For Disease Control (CDC), has issued new guidelines for the handling of the Ebola virus in America. This medical emergency has made the public aware of the fact the CDC is not prepared for all diseases that can strike, which is dangerous.  

Nina Pham's boyfriend is now under quarantine

The government has to get on the ball and prepare for every potential medical scenario that can strike America. It will save lives. Infectious disease is a serious problem that can kill rapidly. People are depending on the CDC in what is a monumental task and one they cannot fail at, as the price is too high.

Amber Vinson

The Ebola virus is nature gone out of control. The perfect balance has been disrupted. Illness and death is the result for thousands in Africa and Mr. Duncan, who passed on U.S. shores. An international medical body needs to pool global resources in addressing the Ebola crisis.
