So how many of you out there have a wireless router? How many of you have a router that is password protected? If you have a wireless router that has no password protection and is open to everyone and their dog, you might want to listen up. It appears that a guy from New York learned a lesson the hard way. I mean, isn’t that how most of us learn a lesson anyway? Well if you would like to learn something new you can leave your wireless router open to the public and have your local FBI agents pay you a visit. That’s right folks, the FBI.
So what brought these fine people to the doorstep of the guy from New York? Child porn images. Where did it come from? Technically it came from this man’s home but it was accessed by some jerk pedophile over the home owners open connection. As far as the FBI’s concerned, the owner is the one who is at fault. So unless you would like an unfriendly knock at your door, you need to take a little bit of time out of your day to figure out your wireless router and add a password to it. For the full article see link below and protect yourself or the guy to the left will steal your connection and get you in trouble.

More and more children are consuming large amounts of media each day. According to Mashable.com, The Kaiser Family Foundation conducted a study that showed children are consuming “11 hours’ worth of media content within a seven and half-hour span.” The American Academy of Pediatrics states that,
“The average young person views more than 3000 ads per day on television (TV), on the Internet, on billboards, and in magazines. Increasingly, advertisers are targeting younger and younger children in an effort to establish “brand-name preference” as early an age as possible.”
Quick facts from greatschools.org –
- Half of all kids who start smoking do so because they saw it in movies.
- Movie smoking is even more effective than cigarette ads with teens.
- Research shows that 9- to 11-year-olds can identify the Budweiser frogs better than Tony the Tiger, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers or Smokey the Bear.
Why does this matter?
- Because alcohol advertising affects underage drinking behavior.
- Because kids are using drugs at younger and younger ages.
- Because kids, especially teens, are bombarded with thousands of images of smoking in movies alone.

Umm…yeah, this is not going to be a post about Schwarzenegger and his teenage terminator kid. This is a post about this coming Saturday, which has been labeled Judgement Day or the return of Christ, hence the title of this post. Apparently a guy by the name of Harold Camping has said that this Saturday the 21st of May will be the end of the world. Harold and his followers say that around 6pm or so there will be a world ending earthquake and all those who believe will leave their bodies on earth and head up to the heavens. All others will remain on earth and experience a world unlike no other and it will be horrific in nature. The very last survivors will finally be taken out by God himself on October 21, 2011. It’s pretty crazy to think but this guy claims to have studied the bible for thousands upon thousands of hours and he guarantees, although he has done this before and failed, that this Saturday will be the end.
Harold spent about $140,000 of his loot to warn the world and spread the word on this revelation. So what does the public think of all this hoopla? Well I can say for myself that I will be going to work to make some loot so that I can provide for my family. As for others, from what I have read, they are preparing Rapture parties. That’s right mofo’s, people are planning parties to celebrate this false prophecy. Some people have even gone as far as to set up After Rapture Looting Parties. They say that after the Rapture, when everyone has left, they will loot their favorite stores and find the nearest mansion to squat in. Sounds like fun to me! I would loot a place, leave with some brew and meat, and go to the nearest fire pit where I will strip naked and grill up some grub and get Lindsey Lohan drunk. LOL! Not really but it sounds fun. So if you believe this shit then start praying because it is going to be a crazy one. If you don’t believe it then go about your day and laugh at Harold when he’s proven wrong.Post Views: 38

According to neighborhoodscout.com, the city of Grand Rapids, MI holds a population of just under 190,000 people. Within that amount are people with their own story. They range from the happy to the sad and to those of violence. This is the story of Cruz, a former gang member who sought the friendship and limelight of a gang but soon found out that this life was not a smooth path. This story also highlights the work of Mario Alfaro, a youth advocate and gang specialist with the Hispanic Center of Western Michigan.
Alfaro works with gang members through a program called, Supporting Our Leaders (SOL). According the center’s official website, “the Supporting Our Leaders (SOL) Program’s mission is to strengthen families and reduce youth violence by offering educational and cultural empowerment opportunities.” With a recent rise in violence, Alfaro spoke on a local radio station to express his concerns. Others have also noticed a spike in violent crime and according to mlive.com, “Police Chief Kevin Belk released 2012 statistics that show a 10-percent spike in violent crime from the previous year.” The spike was enough to bring local leaders and authorities together for one of a series of town hall meetings to share ideas on how to prevent and stop this problem.
It was just this past January when the town hall meeting covered by WOOD TV8, a local news station, dubbed “Beyond the Violence” occurred. According to their official website, “Strong role models, more opportunities, positive outlook and the community working together were common themes during a WOOD TV8 town hall, “Beyond the Violence.” The site goes on to say that, “The town hall is the latest in a series of community meetings begun by area pastors in conjunction with the police and other community activists to stem the tide that has seen 11 people gunned down over the past six weeks in the city of Grand Rapids.”
It is people like Alfaro of the Hispanic Center of Western Michigan and other local leaders of the community, as mentioned above, that strive to curb the issue of violence. Whether it is due to gangs, the youth or random acts, the endgame of peace is something they strongly believe in. As for Cruz, whose name and voice have been changed for his safety, sought help through the center. Although he eventually left the life of a gang member, he suffered 20 gunshot wounds as he walked home from celebrating his 18th birthday. The shooting was done by a group of people who he once had a problem with when he was involved in gangs. Cruz lived through the incident and tells his experience in his interview within this publication.
