Interracial Dating Tips: How White Men Can Successfully Date Black Women – San Francisco Dating Advice


All over the U.S. and especially here in the San Francisco Bay Area, men and women are opening their eyes and arms to love with a partner of another race. Interracial relationships, once a source of angst and fear in America, are now commonplace. Since the landmark 1967 Loving v. Virgina ruling which made interracial marriages legal, the rate of interracial marriage in the United States has more than doubled. Data published from the U.S. Census Bureau estimates that interracial marriages accounted for slightly less than 15% of all new marriages in 2008.

Though Asian women married other races approximately 40% of the time in 2008, Black women have been the slowest to jump on the interracial dating/marriage train, with just 9% marrying someone of another race. However, that number is climbing fast.

For the past three years, U.S. media has focused on the large numbers of single Black women and the fact that Black women are statistically the least likely to be married. Are Black women less marriageable than women of other races? Not at all! The primary reason so many Black women are single is that they believed they should marry only Black men, thus millions of Black women were oblivious to the interest expressed by men of other races.

In discussing this issue with non-Black men, I discovered that many are extremely attracted to Black women yet hesitant to approach. These five guidelines will help you feel more confident about interacting with the fabulous single Black woman you’ve been dying to get to know better.

Focus on your similarities, not your differences. Each of us enters into a relationship with our own history, culture, experiences and upbringing. Though interracial dating relationships have definite challenges, our differences are more than just the color of our skin. Your Black partner may experiences racial tensions and slights that you just don’t recognize. You will interact with your families and others differently. You may enjoy different television shows, different movies and different foods. But you will probably have a lot in common as well, which is what will ultimately be the glue that keeps you together.

Avoid telling her that you “don’t see color.” The reality is that the U.S. was established on and maintains an unequal balance of influence and power based on race. Saying that you don’t see color ignores the cultural, language, economic and social barriers experienced by non-Whites in the United States. The fact that many Whites prefer to believe that racism no longer exists in the U.S. is a real problem for non-Whites. Such a denial of the reality of people of color is essentially racist – it’s your way of saying that you know more about the reality of Black Americans than she does. Better to say “I appreciate the differences between the races” than to deny that such differences exist.

Take the time to understand the physical and cultural dissimilarity between other races and Black women. The hair issue is a big one. Don’t be surprised when she isn’t anxious to jump into the ocean or a pool after paying $100 to get her hair done for the date. And no, you cannot touch her hair either. Another problematic issue is body types. All women are insecure at least a little bit about their bodies. However, the media makes it much worst by perpetuating a female standard of beauty that is slim, narrow hipped, long legged, and blonde with blue eyes. Few White women fit the stereotype, and absolutely NO Black, Asian or Hispanic women do. Cultural differences also apply to cuisine. Avoid turning up your nose at the things your mate likes to eat and instead broaden your horizons.

Be honest about the issues you have with racism in your family. Will your family be accepting of your choice, or view your interracial relationship as a mere phase to be tolerated? Will they think you are losing your identity and feel threatened that they will lose you next? Be honest with your partner and let them know what they are getting into. Don’t set her up to be broadsided by your family or friends while you flaunt her to make a social statement, or use her for shock value or to rebel.

Using race as the primary or sole criteria for dating her is insulting. You may think you are being flattering and honest, but in reality many of the statements White guys make to Black women come across as creepy fetishizing. Telling her “It’s not like you’re the first Black woman I’ve ever dated” or “Black women are so sexy/free sexually” or “I love how Black women catch an attitude and do that neck rolling thing” or “I only date Black women” are guaranteed to offend her. Women of all races want to be loved for who they are as people, not the color of their skin or some silly racist stereotype. Focusing on her as a “type” makes your choice of her come across as a fetish. Stereotyping Black women’s anger based on videos or reality show dramatics makes you appear far less than intelligent. Black women are not the only race of women that will get angry, nor do Black women hold a patent on enjoyment of sexual experimentation. Unless she asks, it is also not necessary to discuss the race of previous partners.

The biggest fear that a Black woman has about interracial dating relationships is the worry that she is being used as a social experiment and not truly loved. The negative portrayal of Black women in American media as exotic sexual wild women has also impacted Black women’s willingness to date men of other races. As such she may initially be somewhat distrustful of your motivations for approaching.

However, if you are similar in background, education, professionalism, leisure activities, hobbies, interests, and income, she will have much more in common with you than she would a Black male just because they have the same skin color. Remember, matching paint jobs is not what makes a relationship work.

Emphasis on similarities, not differences.

Black women are looking for partners that offer more important things like an ability to communicate, similar outlooks on life, similar goals… even comparable religious beliefs may help. Remember, she’s a woman first, and a Black woman second. All women want the same thing – to be loved and respected, her ideals and history accepted, and for the man in her life to embrace the things and people that are important to her.

Is that really so hard?

Boehringer says it’s fighting 2,000 lawsuits over Pradaxa safety


Pradaxa has become a bigger legal headache for Boehringer Ingelheim. The German drugmaker says it’s facing more than 2,000 lawsuits in the U.S., filed by patients claiming the anticoagulant drug caused severe or fatal bleeding.

The news of the lawsuit numbers comes on the heels of a new FDA look at Pradaxa’s safety. Though the agency has reviewed safety data on Pradaxa before, it has now decided to dig into its Mini-Sentinel database to compare outcomes in Pradaxa and warfarin patients.

The first of a new group of alternatives to the traditional clot-buster warfarin, Pradaxa hit the market in 2010, and as it came into real-world use, side-effect reports started to mount. Though the risk of bleeding for Pradaxa patients doesn’t appear to be higher than it is for warfarin users, the sheer number of side-effect reports triggered concern among regulators and doctors.

As Boehringer has pointed out, rates of serious bleeding in the marketplace have more or less equaled those seen in clinical trials. But physicians have been particularly worried by the fact that, unlike warfarin, Pradaxa and its next-gen rivals have no antidote. Without one, bleeding is difficult to stop once it begins. And obviously, statistics mean little to individual patients and their families, so the lawsuits started to roll in.

Boehringer has been working on an antidote, as have Pfizer ($PFE) and Bristol-Myers Squibb ($BMY), which sell a competitor, Eliquis; and Johnson & Johnson ($JNJ) and Bayer, which market Xarelto.

“We are certain that we can show in the legal cases that we have worked very carefully and responsibly in research, development and marketing of Pradaxa,” the company said in a written statement (as quoted by Reuters).

The behind-the-scenes discussion of Pradaxa’s safety went public last week, showing that marketing managers were worried about an internal report pradaxa side effects showing that the drug would be safer to use if patients’ blood levels were routinely monitored. Because freedom from such monitoring is one of Pradaxa’s selling points–warfarin is notoriously difficult to dose and requires regular testing–some company officials wanted to downpedal or even bury the report, The New York Times reported.

In response, Boehringer told The Times that the recently unsealed documents “represent small fragments of the robust discussion and debate that is a vital component in all scientific inquiry, and in the research and development of any important medication such as Pradaxa.”

The Dangers of Psychiatric Drugs‏


Filed in Gather Health Essential by Craig Olson on May 5, 2011 o 0 Comments

“Do no harm.” Hippocrates




It is very unfortunate that Zyprexa and other atypical “antipsychotics” can cause diabetes. Something needs to be done about these drugs, which are ineffective. They can also cause drug-induced Parkinsonism. Yet the government blackballs alternative treatments such as orthomolecular psychiatry.

The Metabolic Syndrome

  The metabolic syndrome can be caused by atypical “antipsychotics”. There is a lot of fat around the abdominal area. Hyperlipidemia (blood lipids too high) can be seen. This is a very dangerous side effect or constellation of side effects. Your cholesterol can go up. Sometimes people get this syndrome without taking the drugs. In either case the patient needs to go on a low fat diet.

  Failure to treat this side effect can result in diabetes, heart disease, cancer, etc. Your risk factors for these diseases are greatly increased, unfortunately. 





  Unfortunately there have also been depakote lawsuit problems with lithium, including kidney toxicity, thyroid toxicity, and neurotoxicity.




  Unfortunately Depakote can cause tremors if the drug level causes neurotoxicity.

Valproate Class Action


Valproate Class Action

Has your child or other loved one been diagnosed with a birth defect after the mother took valproate during pregnancy? Are you interested in filing a class action lawsuit against the manufacturers? If so, we can help.

Free Valproate Lawsuit Evaluation: If your child or other loved one was born with a birth defect after the mother took valproate during pregnancy, you should contact our law firm immediately. You may be entitled to compensation by filing a suit against the manufacturer of valproate and we can help.

What’s the Problem?

Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Products Liability Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a valproate class action suit and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of children who were born with birth defects after the mother took valproate during pregnancy.

About Class Action Lawsuits

A class action is a type of lawsuit filed with the court on behalf of large group of people or “class” of individuals that have been injured or wronged. The class is represented by the law firm and the case is generally decided upon a single member of the class who is sometimes referred to as the “class representative or class rep.”

Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Lawsuits Opposed To a Class Action

In some instances, a class action may offer some advantages, as they aggregate a large number of individualized claims into one representational lawsuit. The aggregation can increase the efficiency of the legal process, lower the costs of litigation and in some cases offer the solution to a common problem wherein small recoveries do not provide the incentive for any individual or law firm to file an individual lawsuit.

However, a class action suit can also be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each clients recovery by filing individual valproate lawsuits on their behalf.

Do I Have a Valproate Lawsuit?

The Product Liability & Defective Drug Litigation Group at our law firm is an experienced team of trial lawyers that focus on the representation of plaintiffs in valproate lawsuits. We are handling individual litigation nationwide and currently accepting new valproate birth defects cases in all 50 states.

Medications for treating BPD – Philadelphia Mental Health


“Drug treatment is normally considered as an adjunctive rather than a primary treatment for borderline personality”disorder,” American Psychiatric Association

Borderline personality disorder is a psychiatric condition that is generally treated with intensive psychotherapy as opposed to medication.

And while there is currently no cure for borderline personality disorder, various talk therapies including cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy have proven very effective in reducing many of the most serious symptoms and the overall course of the disorder.

There are however three classes of medications that are effective in treating patients with borderline personality disorder. They are atypical anti-psychotics, mood stabilizers, and certain types of antidepressants.

One class of medications that should generally be avoided when treating patients with borderline disorder are benzodiazepines. These meds are often prescribed to treat the anxiety which affects 9 out of 10 patient with bpd.

However, since this class of medication, which includes the drugs Xanax and Valium, has a high potential for abuse and addiction and should generally be avoided in the case of patients with bpd.

Atypical anti-psychotics

These are a newer generation of antipsychotic meds that do not produce the kind of negative side effects of some of the older antipsychotic drugs. These meds when given in small doses have been shown to reduce symptoms such as distorted thinking, paranoia, impulsivity, transient psychosis, anger/aggression, and suicidal thoughts in borderline patients. Included in this family of medication are olanzapine (Zyprexa), aripiprazole (Abilify), and risperidone (Risperdal).

SSRI antidepressants

SSRIs are some of the most commonly prescribed medications in the United States. Medications in this class include drugs like Prozac, Celeza, and Zoloft. There are considered very safe and are effective in reducing both the anxious and depressive symptoms that often accompany borderline personality disorder. These meds have also been shown to be effective in calming borderline anger or rage.

Mood stabilizers.

Medications in this class include divalproex (Depakote), lamotrigine (Lamictal), carbamazepine (Tegretol), and Lithium. In addition to regulating the mood swings which are a common feature in borderline patients, these medications have also been show effective in reducing the anger/hostility and the impulsivity in borderline patients.

Borderline personality disorder is a serious complex psychiatric condition with no known cure. However, with time and long-term talk therapy patients can make significant improvements. In addition medication is now showing greater promise in treating this often devastating disorder.

Legal Talks: Re A (Children) Conjoined Twins: Surgical Separation (2000)


Jodie and Mary are conjoined twins. They each have their own brain, heart and lungs and other vital organs and they each have arms and legs. They are joined at the lower abdomen. Whilst not underplaying the surgical complexities, they can be successfully separated. But the operation will kill the weaker twin, Mary. That is because her lungs and heart are too deficient to oxygenate and pump blood through her body. She is alive only because a common artery enables her sister, who is stronger, to circulate life sustaining oxygenated blood for both of them. Separation would require the clamping and then the severing of that common artery. Within minutes of doing so Mary will die. Yet if the operation does not take place, both will die within three to six months, or perhaps a little longer, because Jodie’s heart will eventually fail.

The parents cannot bring themselves to consent to the operation. The twins are equal in their eyes and they cannot agree to kill one even to save the other. As devout Roman Catholics, they sincerely believe that it is God’s will that their children are afflicted as they are and they must be left in God’s hands. The doctors are convinced they can carry out the operation so as to give Jodie a life which will be worthwhile. So the hospital sought a declaration that the operation may be lawfully carried out. Johnson J. granted it on 25th August 2000. The parents applied to the Royal Courts of Justice, London, for permission to appeal against his order.

The question, or rather questions, that arose out of this was:-

1. Does medical possibility entail legal and ethical necessity? 

2. Are some lives more sacred than the other?

In deciding, the courts has relied on the defence of necessity as in Airedale NHS Trust v Bland (1993) where, as mentioned in bold above:- “Separation would require the clamping and then the severing of that common artery.” where clamping of the blood supplies in Re A is similar to withdrawal of artificial feeding that was deemed as lawful in Airedale NHS as patient was in persistent vegetative state, and hence maintenance of life was only by artificial feeding.

In distinguishing, it has to be noted that in Airedale NHS, withdrawal of artificial feeding was fair as patient was only surviving due to the artificial feeding. Persistent vegetative state, although not recognized by statute as death, is a condition of patients with severe brain damage who were in a coma. In this case, Tony Bland sustained catastrophic and irreversible damage to the higher centres of the brain and several attempts were made by Dr Howe and his team, along with Bland’s father, sister and mother, to try to elicit some response from him and for some signs of interaction. However, all attempts failed and he showed no sign of being aware of anything that took place around him.

Scans shows that whilst the brain stems remains intact, there was no cortical activity. The person who was Anthony Bland was gone and there was no reasonable possibility of recovery. With the support of his parents, the hospital applied for a court order allowing him to ‘die with dignity’.

In stark contrast, while the case of Re A relied heavily on the defence of necessity as in Airedale NHS, it has to be noted that the clamping of blood supplies took place while Mary was still alive, albeit being less viable than Jodie. The act of clamping the blood supplies was an intentional act as laid down in R v Woolin where as long as the act results in reasonable foreseeable consequences, it is sufficient to satisfy the mens rea element for murder.

Also, while in Airedale NHS, the removal of the artificial feeding was with the approval of the family members, in Re A however, the act to sacrifice Mary in order to let Jodie live, was not agreeable by Jodie and Mary’s parents, who were devout Roman Catholics.

In defence, Ward LJ has stated rather adamantly that courts are not court of morals.

Mary may have a right to life, but she has little right to be alive – she is killing Jodie. She sucks the lifeblood of Jodie. Mary will survive only so long as Jodie survives. Jodie will not survive long because constitutionally, she will not be able to cope. Mary’s parasitic living will be the cause of Jodie’s ceasing to live.

Ward LJ even went on further to say:

Prohibition of intentional killing was recognised as being “the cornerstone of law and social relationships” and is of “supreme moral value”. However… this is not an absolute rule. Life must be protected from unjust attack and deliberate taking of life is prohibited unless in self defense or in the legitimate defense of others.

My question, is this: Are some life more sacred than the other?

Doctor’s duty, in law, is to protect lives and it is widely known that an act by which a doctor’s primary intention is to bring about a patient’s death would be unlawful. Thus, can these decisions about the relative worth of life of an individual be legally made, when these decisions results in the loss of life that is considered to be less worthy.

The most crucial point to note in this debate would be the violation of the Human Rights Act 1998. Article 2 of the Act provides that everyone has a right to live and it is the positive duty on public authorities to protect the lives of individuals. Hence, by Re A being decided as such in year 2000, isn’t it a clear violation of the HRA 1998? In another words, common law defence of necessity prevails over an Act of Parliament? Where then, is the Supremacy of British Parliament?


20 Reasons Not to Go to Law School – Yahoo Voices


I’m a lawyer. Here are 20 reasons not to make the same mistake I did. Here are 20 reasons not to go to law school.

1. All lawyers are assholes. A common misconception is that lawyers become assholes at the swearing in ceremony. Take it from me, they’re assholes as early as law school orientation.

2. Law school costs a shitload of money. Unless your parents flit the bill, you’re gonna be paying back student loans for the next 30 years of your life. You may even be writing articles for Associated Content just to meet your monthly school loan bills.

3. If you believe you go to school to learn, law school isn’t for you. Law school isn’t for learning, it’s for competing against your fellow classmates. The same assholes I mentioned in Reason #1.

4. You learn absolutely nothing practical in law school. Law school is meant to help you think like a lawyer, not help you practice law. There are no classes entitled Legal Fees 101 or Getting Your Deadbeat Client to Pay. You learn that the hard way on your own.

5. Law school professors are pretentious pricks. Think of your worst college professor and multiply his or her conceit by one hundred. That’s your average law school professor.

6. Law students don’t drink nearly as much as college students. If you think you’re going to law school to continue your partying days, think again. Law students aren’t fun. Stay on campus, take graduate courses.

7. The Juris Doctorate degree is the only Doctorate degree you can earn and still not be called Doctor. “Counselor” just sucks, and it’s usually used only by Judges right before they yell at you.

8. Law students are constantly asked for legal advice even though they don’t know the first damn thing about the law. You either have to make something up or look stupid. Or both.

9. Final Exams suck. Your entire semester boils down to two weeks of tests, one session right before Christmas, one right before summer break. Talk about stress. Who needs that?

10. Summer Break sucks. You’ve got to work to build up your resume during summer break because all those aforementioned assholes are doing it and you’re competing against them.

11. Three years is a long time. The four years of college flew by, but don’t expect the same from the years you’re stuck in law school. Remember, you’re surrounded by assholes, you’re competing, and no one’s drinking. Time…moves…slowly.

12. The pretty girls are mean, the good-looking guys are dorks.

13. You are told at law school orientation that you cannot sustain a relationship while you are in law school. Say goodbye to your mate, and no, he or she will not be waiting for you over the next three years.

14. The Bar Exam sucks. It’s two or three days of nonsensical questions that you will never have to answer again in your career. You’ll study for three months for one damn test, and if you fail (and 40% of you will), you have to do it all over again in six months. And you’ll look like a dumbass to the asshole friends you made in law school.

15. If you pass the bar exam, you then have to deal with the State’s Character and Fitness Committee. If you’ve led any kind of life, you have at least one or two skeletons in your closet. Well, dust them off, because they’re coming out. And some group of self-righteous assholes are gonna judge you by them.

16. The bigger the firm you end up with, likely the more money you’ll make. The caveat is the bigger the firm you work for, the more assholes you’ll work with.

17. Practicing law isn’t a 9 to 5 gig. You work long hours. With those aforementioned assholes. Nuff said.

18. Lawyer jokes. Yeah, they were funny when you first heard them. But they get old real fast.

19. Most Judges are none too swift. And you have to kiss their ass right through their black robes. I mean, really these Judges have to take a pay cut to drape themselves in black and sit on a perch. How much fun can they be?

20. The best reason not to go to law school and not to become a lawyer is this: CLIENTS. Clients ruin the practice of law. They are often imbecilic tormentors who tell you time and time again, “You work for me.” They know nothing about the law, but they wanna run the show. And worst of all, they don’t like to pay their bills.

Diet Plans: Benefits of Partial Meal Replacement for Weight Loss? – Yahoo Voices


At one time partial meal replacement diet plans were considered unsafe but with the recent improvements in their nutritional ingredients, better informed health specialists, and the incorporation of additional weight loss products to complement it, they are now considered very effective. What are meal replacement plans? What are the short term and long term benefits of partial meal replacement plans?

Partial meal replacements are made up of shakes, bars, or foods that are low in sugar, calories and fat. They are usually rich in vitamins, fiber and minerals.

So how effective are these diet plans? Well, one study conducted by the American Journal of Clinical nutrition shows that these weight loss plans are highly effective. Compared to subjects who tried other diet plans, those who replaced their meals with shakes, bars or other foods lost 12.7 pounds more in three months.

How many times have you heard a friend or personally experienced the breaking of a diet. Many people often give up on traditional diet plans because it takes too long to experience the results they are looking for. Partial meal replacements will help you to lose weight faster especially if it is used in addition to regular exercise.

Meal Replacements are even effective for those who have Type 2 Diabetes. Here is one of many examples:

“Yip I, Go VLW, DeShields S, et al. Liquid meal replacements and glycemic control in obese type weight loss programs 2 diabetes patients. Obes Res 2001;9(suppl 4):341S-347S.

Fifty-seven patients with type 2 diabetes used either meal replacements (two meal replacement shakes and one portion-controlled dinner high in fruits and vegetables per day) or a calorically-restricted diet (American Diabetes Association Exchange Diet) for 12 weeks. Both diets results in significant weight loss demonstrating that meal replacements can be used safely for weight loss in obese type 2 diabetics. The meal replacement group had greater weight and fat mass loss and reductions in fasting glucose compared to the ADA group.”

Another benefit of meal replacements is that it is quick and easy to make. You may not even have to make some of them because they come pre-packaged and readymade. With the shakes all you have to do is put it in a blender, add some fruits to create a full meal and blend. With some meals such as protein bars all you have to do is open the wrapper and eat. This is so much easier than having to cook and put together a regular meal that are high in protein and has low calories. Sometimes cooked foods do not even add up to the necessary daily amount of nutrients that should be consumed per day to get the weight loss desired.

Partial Meal Replacement diet plans are very nutritional, safe, and convenient. Putting this form of diet into practice can make weight loss much speedier and bearable than other forms of diet plans especially when used with exercise.


No Respect for Former Pro-Wrestlers in MMA by Ryan Brackenbury


I am not sure how many people out there look at Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley still as pro wrestlers rather than true MMA athletes but it is something that they will both have to fight going forward in their respective MMA careers.

You would think that more people would embrace these two physical specimens as legitimate seeing as they both have tremendous amateur wrestling backgrounds. That, however, is not the case as they are both viewed as wrestlers still.

The fact that Lesnar has only four fights under his belt and is a champ makes a lot of the UFC and MMA pundits angry that ol’ Brock did not earn his place in the rankings and that the only reason he was put in that position was because he had a following in pro wrestling. While I agree that his positioning within the UFC has a lot to do with his prowrestling fanbase he is there because he is a fighter. He has proven it in his limited MMA career that he can handle the pressures and rigors of the “real” sport. He is proven that he can hang with the big boys (see Heath Herring and Randy Couture) and to a lesser extent Frank Mir. It will be interesting to see if Brock can lay another beating on Mir like the first match they had. Mir keeps talking about how is technique is so superior to Brock’s that he will dominate the match. That however may be Mir’s downfall if he thinks that a wrestler with Brock’s background can’t learn how to defend submissions or even learn how to apply a few. Mir is right that he is the more technically sounder of the two but he is also not as good of a wrestler as Brock and lacks the raw wwe tickets strength and power of Brock. I am picking Brock in this one mostly because of his physical stature compared to Mir’s. After watching their first fight again Mir was lucky to escape as early as he did with the win because Brock was absolutely dominating that bout for the short time it lasted.

Bobby Lashley just finished one of the quickest fights I have ever seen if the MFC last Friday. He choked out Mike Cook in about 24 seconds (official time) but this one was over the second they stepped to the middle of the ring. Lashley threw one punch and landed it, proceeded to put a choke on Cook, take his to the mat and squeezed so hard that Cook looked like frying bacon in a pan. This after Cook tried a little mental game on Lashley by coming out in a wrestling mask. This is what I was referring to earlier, Lashley is not getting any respect from anyone because of his pro wrestling background. This is a mistake for any opponent of these two athletes. Those actions will make these very large men with wrestling skills even more dangerous.

They both left the WWE not because of money but because they both wanted “legitimate” competition. They are now both getting the competition just not the respect. It will be interesting to see where these two guys both end up in the MMA “rankings” in the next year as I have a feeling that all the naysayers will be gone. Then perhaps the fans can start to look at actual skills instead of previous employers…

Slacker Out!!

Supernatural Characters in WWE Wrestling


Kane Makes Fire Shoot From the TurnbucklesProfessional wrestling, at its basic level, is a choreographed match between two or more people who put on a story for the audience. And while that would seemingly be enough, there is much more to pro wrestling than that. Bizarre and controversial storylines have been used, including ones of the supernatural variety. Wrestlers like The Undertaker and Papa Shango helped to familiarize fans with the supernatural in wrestling.

The Undertaker as the Living Dead

The Undertaker is the most popular, well-known and obvious example of a supernatural character in wrestling. He is often referred to as the Deadman, and has been referred to as the living dead many times. At Royal Rumble 1994 he was! defeated in a casket match against Yokozuna, and Undertaker declared that he would not rest in peace, indicating that he knew he could not be destroyed.

He returned clad in a new costume, and with more magical powers than ever. He continued to rely on the mysterious urn that his manager Paul Bearer carried with him. Whenever Taker was in trouble in the ring, Bearer would hold up the urn and the Phenom would seemingly draw strength from it and attack with renewed vigor.

The Undertaker has also returned seemingly from the dead many times, as he has been buried alive, set on fire, driven through a huge screen, and locked in a casket. Yet he always returned stronger and fiercer than ever. The Phenom cannot be defeated by ordinary means, it seems, and like a zombie he keeps coming back.

Papa Shango as a Voodoo Priest

Papa Shango was one of the characters of Charles Wright, the wrestler more popularly known as The Godfather. His perhaps most notorious moment came when he put a curse on The Ultimate Warrior, which caused the Warrior to vomit and bleed from his head. He was not a very successful wrestler, and only lasted about a year. He did make time for a match with his supernatural rival The Undertaker, however.

Gangrel as a Vampire

Gangrel was not officially called a vampire by the World Wrestling Federation, but was described as living a “gothic lifestyle”, along with the members of his Brood, Edge and Christian. However, before he would begin his matches he drank a mysterious red liquid from a goblet and constantly sported fangs. David Heath, who portrayed Gangrel, was previously known as Vampire Warrior. Therefore the implication is obvious.

The Boogeyman as a Bogeyman

In 2005, The Boogeyman became part of WWE. He would often sing demented nursery rhymes, cackle, and tell opponents that he was “coming to get” them. Before he began his matches, he ate live worms. What exactly The Boogeyman was besides a bogeyman is not clear, but his ability to frighten his opponents, and even John Cena implies that he is the ghostly, monstrous figure of childhood nightmares.

Kane as a Fire Starter

Although Kane is not strictly a zombie like his brother The Undertaker, he does appear to have some magical powers in that he is able to make fire shoot out of the ring posts when he makes his ring entrance. However, unlike the Phenom, Kane is acknowledged as being a living human.

The Zombie as a Zombie

This ECW wrestling character, which lasted only one night, was a supernatural creature made of real-life wrestler Tim Roberts. On June 13, 2006, Roberts wrestled as The Zombie against The Sandman. He did not even put up a fight as The Sandman defeated him after several shots to the head with a Singapore cane. The Zombie proved he was really a zombie because he walked with arms outstretched and groaned loudly like movie zombies.

Although only a few wrestlers have been the embodiment of the supernatural, wrestling has nevertheless tapped into the public’s love of horror and mystery and spooky things with these characters. There may not be much of a place for them in today’s WWE, but they will be remembered by fans.

A Primer On What Troubled Teen Wilderness Therapy Programs Are


There are a number of good wilderness therapy programs that are available for troubled teens. It’s understandable that parents have a difficult time deciding on whether they want to send their child away from home to be in a wilderness therapy program. However, if your teen is on a dangerous path, getting him/her on the right path that leads to wellness can save them from struggling with these problems through their adult lives.

It would be a comfort sherwood – mansfield – nottingham for parents struggling with their teens’ dangerous addictions that these troubled teen wilderness therapy programs have a high success rate in helping participants turn their lives around. As such, more parents are turning to these programs to help them out with their struggling teens.

Different teens have different problems which mean that finding the right program that will make the most impact in their life and inspire the most change is very important. There are some wilderness therapy programs that focus on specialized therapy. Some deal with teenagers struggling with accepting the death of a loved one, some deal with teenagers who have self-esteem issues, and more.

In our society, it’s quite alarming that the number of teens struggling with drug and alcohol dependency is quite high. There are wilderness therapy programs that help with that as well. Several years back, such programs were standardized where one type of program fits all teenagers with different problems. As a result, teens that were sent to such programs are usually not prepared for therapy and it was harder for camp staff to focus their therapy.

Troubled teen wilderness therapy programs these days usually make it a point to prepare for the arrival of a troubled teen in order to make the most impact. It’s also done to make sure that the time spent by the youth in the program would really be focused on what issues need to be addressed. There are plenty of individual therapy sessions as well as useful group sessions while in the program.

Unlike what some people may believe, such therapeutic programs are not just about camping, although they are done in a wilderness setting. Through forging a partnership between camp staff and teens, the youth who spends time in the program sees it as a shared adventure and experience rather than as a punishment. During the program, along with the therapy for drug and alcohol dependency, they learn about a healthy kind of friendship and a good level of personal responsibility. Through interacting with people who have the same challenges that they do, they find ways of coping with their own inner struggles which they may not have known about prior to the program.

Some programs can last for as short as a few weeks, some can run for several months. Some have a summer program, some have programs that have academic elements in order to make sure that the teen doesn’t fall behind in their studies while participating in the program.

Preparing your teen to go to a wilderness therapy program involves not just buying the right gear for it. Sitting down to talk with your child about what to expect in the program, how long it would run, and what activities they can look forward to would be a great help. It would also be best if you encouraged your child to ask questions before he/she leaves for camp in order to get them into an introspective mindset.

Where to Celebrate July 4th In Denver


The most popular fireworks show in Denver happens at Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies, but the best seats on the field might not be as difficult to find as you might think.  Although tickets to the July 4th game usually sell out months before the game date, there are a few choice sections where fans can get a great view from their seat or from the field.  Guests with tickets from the Rockpile through the Left Field Pavilion will all be escorted down to the Coors Field grass to watch the fireworks show (Sections 148 through 160 plus the Rockpile).  As one might expect, these tickets sell out the quickest and will demand the highest prices if purchased on the secondary market. Tickets in Sections 148, 149, and 150 do not sell out quite as fast because the tickets are more expensive and because many people do not know that these sections also enter the field for the fireworks show. 

Fireworks in Denver from the grass at Coors Field

If you cannot get tickets to enter the field during the fireworks show, the best seats are generally along the first base line.  Seats in these sections will get you a full “front-row” seat where you do not have to strain your neck to take in the show.  Most seats in the entire upper deck are ideal for fireworks viewing because your eyelevel is close to the height of the fireworks.

Note on the 2012 Rockies fireworks show: The Rockies do not have a homegame on July 4th for the first time in many years.  Because of this, the Rockies will host their traditional fireworks show on June 29th and 30th. 

Other Denver Sports Fireworks Shows

The Colorado Rapids soccer team and Denver Outlaws outdoor lacrosse team also host very popular fireworks displays on July 4th.  The Rapids play at Dick’s Sporting Goods Complex in Commerce City, and the Outlaws play at Mile High Stadium, which is also the home of the Denver Broncos football team.  Tickets to these events are cheaper and easier to obtain than tickets to the Rockies fireworks games.

Independence Day Parades in Colorado

Across the Front colorado shows Range, many towns have 4th of July parades and festivals to celebrate our country’s independence.  The city of Denver does not have a parade, but many of the surrounding suburbs, including Lakewood, Highlands Ranch, and Lone Tree, have local celebrations.  Small towns throughout Colorado also offer a genuine slice of hometown Americana in their Independence Day revelries. 

Cherry Creek Arts Festival

For over 20 years, the Cherry Creek Arts Festival has entertained Denver residents over the July 4th weekend.  This festival features a large, but selective group of artists peddling their wares to attendees.  These artists come from around the country and include painters, sculptors, glassmakers, photographers, and many more. 

The food selection at the Cherry Creek Arts Festival makes your Independence Day barbecue look like a weenie roast.  Turkey legs, burritos, gyros, smoothies, cotton candy, pizza.  Just about everything worth eating is available at the festival, and in the past, a wine tasting booth is available to those of age. 

Thankfully for parents, festival organizers have an entire street dedicated to children’s activities.  Kids can paint a children’s mural and can chalk up the street.  There is even an entire tent with arts and crafts, free to all participants.  This is a great way to get your kids out of the sun while it also gives parents a few moments to sit down and relax. 

No festival would be complete without a full itinerary of music, and the Cherry Creek Arts Festival does not disappoint, as three stages lay host to varied local and national music and performing groups.  Performances generally start in the late morning and continue throughout the day. 

July 4th Fun Runs in Colorado

Check local schedules to find a 5k race before ingesting too many calories at your BBQ.  The City of Lone Tree usually organizes a 5k-race open to all participants. 

Denver July 4th Concerts

For many years, the popular rock band Blues Traveler has performed a July 4th concert at Red Rocks.  Whether you are seeing Blues Traveler or not, enjoying a concert at the foot of Colorado’s mountains is a perfect way to celebrate the 4th.  Be sure to check local schedules to confirm dates and times of any concerts. 

Where else to see fireworks

The Suburbs

Most towns across the Front Range have some sort of fireworks display on or around July 4th.  Before the show, be sure to know where the fireworks are being shot off so you can scope out a perfect viewing spot.

Fashion / Style :: A Bali Bra Just For You


The Bali bra line is a collection of high-quality pretty undergarments offering women from all over who come in every shape and size complete support and protection.

A brassiere or bra like the Bali bra is a garment for females to give coverage and support for the women’s breasts. A typical bra is made up of straps at both sides of the shoulder, two cups to accommodate the breasts, a center panel, a band to hold the two cups and goes under the breasts, and a hook clasp or a bra fastener to close the brassier. The brassieres are typically made up of materials such as cotton or lace or even spandex, depending on the style and function that the manufacturer intended. The under wires of the bra are added to provide maximum support and to give shape to the bra cups.

The brassieres like the Bali bra line come in different types, depending on the material used, the function intended, and the style. The Bali line comes in different styles – a bra that closes in the front, another that closes in the back, one that has no straps perfect for tube dresses, a convertible line, push-up line for that wonderful added lift and support, sexy demi-cup or half-cup Bali bra for the ultimate tool in seduction, and the full-cup Bali bra for maximum coverage. The Bali bra also comes with three-quarters cup, soft cup, half-cup, shelf-bra, long line, and Bali bra that comes with under wires. For the active, energetic women, a t-shirt Bali bra promise is available.

The size of Bali bra depends on the size of a woman’s breasts. There are different kinds of brassieres for different sizes and shapes of a woman’s breasts. The band size is the circumference around the body which does not include the breast. The “cup size” indicates the breast’s volume, and it is indicated by letters.

The Bali bra makes sure that a woman’s bra fits her right to make sure that the woman gets a flattering shape every time she wears the brassiere all the while giving her maximum support and makes her feel comfortable. Women with big breasts usually experience uncomfortable and annoying back pain because of inadequate support given by the wrong brassiere. In the United Kingdom, surveys show that about 70% of the female population do not wear the right bra and instead strap on ill-fitting, uncomfortable ones. This was probably because of insufficient knowledge regarding bra and correct fitting. There is also the problem of finding larger bras although the manufacturers nowadays have come up with brassieres that are intended for women with larger breasts than the average female.

The Bali bra line offers brassieres of all kinds and sizes. Brassieres come in cup sizes A to DD. Finding the right cup size can be confusing. Brassiere manufacturers in Europe create brassiers that usually come in increasing sizes, like AAA-AA-A-B-C-D-DD-E-F-FF-G-GG-H-J. The only fool-proof and sure way to get the correct bra is by trying the brassiere on. Band size is determined by getting the circumference of the body directly under the breasts. A certain number is added to give allowance because the ribcage is wider at the height where the breasts are. In the US, about 4 to 6 inches is usually added to the measured circumference to arrive at the correct and size. Bra size may also change depending on weight gain and weight loss. The menstrual cycle also causes changes in the bra size of a woman.

According to statistics, the average woman in the US nowadays has at least six bras. Out of the six brassieres, usually one is colored and one is a bra that has no straps. Brassieres are created for different functions, so you can find Bali bra lines that are classified as minimizers, maximizers, or push ups depending on the support the woman needs. There are also bras that show the woman’s cleavage in really thin, lacey material which is a bra that is intended for showing off.

No matter what your size or shape is, there is a Bali bra for you.

Feel Good Contemporary Country Songs


Toby Keith has had numerous hits, but this was one of my instant favorites. The video is a bit cheesy, but cute.

Other songs you may recognize from Toby Keith include: “Beer for My Horses”, “Getcha Some”, “Should’ve Been a Cowboy”, “Whiskey Girl”, “I Love This Bar” and “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue”.

Toby also started up the franchise “Toby winstar lineup this year Keith I Love This Bar and Grill” that now has locations in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Mesa, Arizona, Pittsburgh and just across the Texas border into Oklahoma at the Winstar World Casino.

Keith also has a line of clothing called “TK Steelman”.

Tim McGraw Hides Secret Son from Faith Hill


Country singer and Blind Side actor Tim McGraw has reportedly been hiding a secret son–not only from his fans, but from wife Faith Hill, too.

According to a report from RadarOnline, McGraw didn’t have an affair and father a love child a la Arnold SchwarzeneggerTim Mcgraw songs style. However, he helped raise the child of a former fiance and has maintained a relationship with him throughout the past several years.

McGraw was once engaged to a woman named Kristine Donahue, and played a big role in raising her son Tyler Zarbo. Zarbo, now a 23-year-old student living in Orlando, spoke out in a recent interview about the I Like It, I Love It singer.

“Tim McGraw was like a father to me when I was growing up,” Zarbo said. “He saw me as the son he never had, and we’ve stayed in contact. I wish he could have remained as my substitute dad, but it just wasn’t meant to be.”

It’s not yet known what kind of contact McGraw has maintained with Zarbo over the years, or how wife Faith Hill is reacting to this news. Even though Tim didn’t legally or morally do anything wrong in this situation, it is a bit strange to learn he’s kept something this seemingly benign a secret for all these years.

Do you suppose there’s more to the story that has yet to be uncovered? Or is it really not even a story at all? Did a tabloid discover the former relationship between McGraw and Zarbo and is it now actively working to create an issue where none actually exists?

Lamu Cultural Festival, History and the Experience of a Medieval Old Town


Along the Kenyan coastline is Lamu town, one of the oldest towns along the East African coastline and only rivaled by Zanzibar in Tanzania. Lamu is an island region in Kenya and is the origin of Swahili people and Swahili culture.

The history of Lamu town started in 1415 when a Chinese ship sunk near the coastline while on its exploration adventures of Africa along the East African coastline.

The survivors from the ship settled at a place now called Lamu and married the locals. In 1506 the Portuguese invaded and took control of the island. The Portuguese invasion was prompted by the island’s success in controlling the trade along the Indian Ocean.

For many years, Lamu Island was under the control of Portuguese who had a complete monopoly of trade, shipping and taxies on trade activities. The Oman Empire was a regional power by then. The empire controlled most of the Middle East, East African and South East African regions.

In early years, Lamu’s economy was based on slave trade until when this trade was abolished in1907. Other trade exports included mangrove, turtle shells, ivory, and rhinoceros horns. These exports were shipped to the Middle East and India through the Indian Ocean.

On numerous occasions, Lamu Island would try rebellion against the Portuguese but it wasn’t successful until 1652 when the Oman Arabs assisted Lamu to resist the Portuguese control.

This marked the beginning of the Lamu Island town as it is known today, an island with diverse culture and preserved poetry, politics, cultural practices, festivals, arts and crafts as well as trade.

Lamu Island is a place whose history is as mysterious and fascinating as the winding streets of it’s medieval stone town.

The island itself is a serene place of rolling sand dunes and endless sandy beaches, where tiny coral made villages nestle among coconut and mango plantations and lateen sailed dhows ply the blue waters.

The island can be accessed through daily flights from Nairobi, Mombasa and Malindi or dhows and yachts ferries arriving to Lamu town or Shela.

One thing that will fascinate you about Lamu is the fact that there are no vehicles in Lamu town. The winding streets of Lamu are best explored on foot. Alternatively you can use the dhows that regularly carry passengers back and forth from Lamu town to Shela.

To access the surrounding islands of Manda, Pate or Siyu, either you can take an organized dhow Safari or for the adventurous traveler you can just hitch a ride on a passing dhow and explore. It is also possible to hire donkeys to ride around the island. You will be surprised that donkeys here are an added asset and so there is even a special sanctuary clinic for them.

Petley’s Inn is Lamu’s oldest hotel mostly preferred by tourists due to its waterfront location. Other high class hotels and resorts in Lamu town include the 20-room Bahari Hotel, Lamu Palace Hotel, the American-restored Amu House, Doda Villas, Swedish-owned Jannat House and Stone House Hotel. Tourism contributes heavily to the local economy with many locals providing dhows trips to tourists.

John Cena: Hate Him or Love Him at WWE Wrestlemania 31


When John Cena’s theme the cheapest seats song is played, thousands of people used to rise up and gave him some cheers and thumbs up signs. Today, those cheers are becoming negative, and the negative cheers against Cena start to grow louder each time John Cena shows up in the ring.

What did Cena do to deserve such treatment? Many fans are just plain tired of him keep on winning the matches. Most of his matches are just predictable. Despite being beaten in the opening rounds and most of the time during the match, he still ends up victorious.

However, there are also fans that grow weary of him no longer able to live up to their expectations on being a hero. He just kept on failing to deliver the expected win. He is always beaten. He is, by far, the most beaten person by the then Nexus. If there is a wrestler that wants to show off his power and wrestling prowess by beating someone, John Cena is the one to beat. And he is always beaten hard. This annoys many of his fans.

When Kane showed up again, after being away for awhile due to the so-called injuries made by the world’s strongest man- Mark Henry, he came back hard with vengeance, not on Mark Henry who temporarily put him away from the ring but on John Cena. It’s just sort of funny story-line.

Nevertheless, John Cena is still the man to beat in the world of wrestling entertainment today. He has arguably never tapped out in a match. Well, he should not; otherwise his famous slogan ‘never give up’ will be put to shame.

John Cena Versus The Rock on Wrestlemania

Wrestlemania 28 Main Event

John Cena is scheduled to fight against the more popular yet equally powerful The Rock on the upcoming Wrestlemania 28 on April of 2012. While the odds are against John Cena, he still got what it takes to beat the Rock and shut him up. Who do you will win in the main event, John Cena versus The Rock? Obviously, those who are against Cena will go for the Rock; while John Cena’s fans will stand by him regardless of who his opponents are.

In any case, whether you love or hate John Cena, he sure is able to stir the crowd; either cheering against him, or cheering for him. That is why the WWE loves John Cena because he brings in good business for the company.

What about you? Are you with John Cena, or against him?

What do you love about going to the Theatre?


I like going to the movies with people, never alone. I particularly like going with my girlfriend (double dates as well). It’s the dark setting and the exclusivity that really makes it a more enjoyable experience (if you know what I mean), as opposed to being cooped up in her house with the parents. Although some parts of the movie are usually missed, due to the extra activities (if you know what I mean), I still love going out to the movies and dinner with her.

Also I will only see certain movies in theaters, movies that I am confident will be good otherwise penny tickets I won’t want to waste my money on it. Unless of course someone else pays for it, in that case I always talk and crack jokes to the person that took me just to make it a more comical experience (as opposed to sitting there in a resentful solitude).

Sexuality :: Liberty Belle:Queen Mother of Drag


A Saga Interview: Liberty Belle, Queen Mother of Drag

By Nevin Jefferson

Drag Queens are the founding Mothers of the Gay Community not to mention the backbone. Female Impersonators who give an illusion of glamour, glitz, and ego for the sole purpose of entertaining are the founding Diva’s. For some, it’s a gift, art, and way of life all while looking beautiful. For other’s it’s taking to the stage with the hope of making at least one person smile. Then there’s Liberty Belle who appears at the Phoenix in Birmingham, Alabama 8 days a week who’s all of the above. Liberty Belle didn’t go around the block; she built an entire city block. She’s a part of the Gay History that you don’t hear about until now. Liberty Belle is roommates with the person who my friend Paul visited in Birmingham. He was fascinated with her stories, was blown away by her act, and thought that she’s be great for a Saga Interview. He was right! When I told Miss Liberty Belle that I wrote about positive things and interesting people in the Gay Community. She replied; “Your column must be a half a page.” I told the Grand Old Dame that it’s a page when I double space. A former Gossip Columnist for 13 years and currently writing a weekly newsletter, which is both a joy and pain in the ass. She undertook this task after the last gay rag became folded, bent, mutilated, and a gone staple. What a gal, huh? She does benefits galore to help a cause and speaks out on issues that affect the gay community as a whole. She’s billed as the oldest performer in the South East then opens with; “Welcome to my Nightmare” which sounds like my life in general. It’s also rumored that she cried when Dinosaurs died. Is she the world’s oldest performer? Let’s see, she took to the stage as Peaches O’Reily when Eisenhower was President. Everyone else from her starting days are either dead, retired, or simply vanished from this green earth. She has her own troupe aged 19-35 that she sees as a business that works out at the last minute. She’s a Chatty Cathy with a mouth of “dish” and one who speaks her mind. I didn’t get a chance to go through the questions as that I composed. I found myself taking notes as she told me about her life, one true love, 2 dogs, and 2 birds.

Nevin Jefferson/The Saga Continues…: How young are you?

Liberty Belle: Let’s not get into the age thing. With me, it all depends on the day of the week and who I’m talking to. It also depends on who’s going to be reading this.

NJ/TSC: This is for The Seattle Gay News and

Liberty Belle: I’m 22! NJ/TSC: How do you define Drag?

Liberty Belle: It’s Burlesque at its best.

NJ/TSC: Tell me about your troupe?

Liberty Belle: They’re a bunch of back stabbing, vindictive, mean bitches who want me out of the way. I have to watch it about these girls because if I don’t I’ll be out of a job. They’ll kill for this job! I’ll be working at McDonald’s where my opening line will be; “Do you want fries with that?”

NJ/TSC: It’s a bitch being a STAR isn’t it?

Liberty Belle: It’s a bitch being a Bitch! NJ/TSC: How old were you when you first did drag?

Liberty Belle: It was 45 years ago.

NJ/TSC: 1959?

Liberty Belle: Eisenhower was president, I was 15 wicked in new york and still in High School. Yes, that’s the year. NJ/TSC: Where did you make your debut?

Liberty Belle: Dilotco-S Bistro. I did a lot of jobs in the daytime too. I took my makeup off and went to High School. Don’t ask me how I finished. It just happened! I got my diploma in the mail one day.

NJ/TSC: And from there the next pair of pumps took you where?

Liberty Belle: I performed in Mass. State in Kingsburg, Manchester, Boston in the Combat zone where I was arrested, New York, and San Diego.

NJ/TSC: You were arrested? Was your act that bad?

Liberty Belle: Bad in those days clubs were raided by the police. They were after the Doctors, Lawyers, and people who would make a headline. I was worried about being caught because I was 17 and was still in High School. Also back in those days I performed in straight clubs with Drag Shows being considered as a freak show.

Liberty Belle: I took time off and went to Portland State. I was served in the Navy. I was stationed in San Diego where I got the urge to do drag. I went to the clubs and kept the girls company then got asked not to come back. I don’t remember the names of the clubs, but if you check my Navy records you’ll find the names there.

NJ/TSC: What did you get a degree in?

Liberty Belle: Journalism and Creative Writing.

NJ/TSC: Where did the chiffon flow from there?

Liberty Belle: I performed at Dahl N Penne-S for 8 years in Portland. I went to New York where I performed. This is where I met Divine who was a mean, evil as hell, nasty bitch. She told me that I was going to end up like her. I was small then and I’m small now. I told her no way! She told me that I was going to end up doing comic relief. I told her no way! I did later on because it’s more fun to do and you can get ridiculous. The bitch is dead now so, she’ll never know. It was there that I joined the troupe “All that Glitter Is Not Girls” from 1971-1976. This is when I began traveling a lot. I performed in Boston, Montana, New York, and basically all over. We traveled in cars, we didn’t fly first class because it was a poor act with little money. But, I love it. It’s serious fun! NJ/TSC: And from there, your heels clicked where?

Liberty Belle: I joined the troupe Cycle Sluts when I was performing in San Francisco. I was with them for 6 months. It was a gender fuck, high camp drag group with men with mustaches and beards. They were big burly guys who put on dresses, leather, and pink wigs and rode out onto stage on motorcycles. I was the smallest one who rode on the back of a cycle. I was also the comic relief and the pretty one. We traveled to Berlin, Japan, Germany, New York, and San Francisco. I also performed a lot overseas with this troupe. This is when I really started to do a lot of traveling which I loved to do. There was a lot of in-house fighting and ugly things going on backstage which caused the troupe to close down.

NJ/TSC: After pulling up your panty hose from this one where did you go?

Liberty Belle: I went back to San Francisco where I lived as a woman. People didn’t believe me, but I did! I was going to get a sex change operation but thought about it then decided that it was a dumb idea. It’s hard work to be a woman and doing all of the crap that you have to do to look beautiful.

NJ/TSC: Where did you go fully intact from there?

Liberty Belle: Back to Portland where I loved living and would be still living today if it wasn’t for my asthma. I wrote a monthly article for one of the Portland papers. I still performed in the clubs where I was blacklisted. I still went back! I used the stage name of Golden Goldie Gates. My asthma got worst with my ending up in the ER twice a week. My doctor told me either to move elsewhere or end up on a respirator. I moved to Birmingham, Alabama where I make it my goal to become the most known queer in Birmingham. It took me a week!

NJ/TSC: How’s your health now?

Liberty Belle: Now, I have emphysema!

NJ/TSC: Woah! You’ll be in my prayers for healing and comfort. How are you holding up?

Liberty Belle: I’m fine! I have to rest once and awhile.

NJ/TSC: Tell me about your children?

Liberty Belle: Well, I have two dogs that I tried selling to a Chinese Restaurant. No sale! I have two birds. I bring one of them into the kitchen when I’m frying chicken and tell him; “You’re next bitch!”

NJ/TSC: And you wonder why you don’t get a card for Mother’s Day don’t you?

Liberty Belle: The only card that I want is a plastic one with a no limit credit line.

NJ/TSC: When did you start doing benefits. Liberty Belle: In Portland, where everyone I knew began getting sick and dying. It didn’t have a name and was called the Gay Cancer. Doctor’s treated it like a cold because they didn’t know what it was. Once Pneumonia kicked in the person was gone with more joining them. Finally they had a name for it! I can’t do outreach help because you become involved and attached. The emotional trauma would kill me!

NJ/TSC: Tell me about your acts.

Liberty Belle: I do outrageous things! I do a number from the song; “It Should Have Been Me” in a Black Wedding Dress tearing up flowers. I came out as Cher in a wheelchair sing; “If I Could Turn Back Time” I was flown in a balloon over the bar. I do old show tunes in evening gowns. I’m the Mud Wrestling Champion.

NJ/TSC: What are the trade secrets of a Drag Queen?

Liberty Belle: Duct Tape, Saran Wrap, pencil it, and shadow. I’m going to write a letter of thanks to the Duct Tape people. It doesn’t hurt when you pull it off. I’m so small that I can use scotch tape.

NJ/TSC: Do you wear Victoria’s Secret or Fredric’s of Hollyweird? Liberty Belle: Neither! They’re too expensive.

NJ/TSC: Who makes up your audience?

Liberty Belle: My audience is 40% straight with the rest being gay. They bring their Mother’s to see me. Why would they do that? My own Mother didn’t’ like my act. She didn’t get it. I told her that the jokes were gay so of course she wouldn’t get it. If she did, I’d be worried! NJ/TSC: Is unsafe sex a problem in Birmingham?

Liberty Belle: Yes! People have gone back to square one acting like people did before Aids came along. I used to fill up the condom jar four times in an evening. Now I fill it every 2 weeks. I’m glad that they started testing in the bars. They do it with a swab and it doesn’t take long. I took one on stage to let everyone know that it didn’t hurt and not to be afraid to fill out the form. I told them to use the name John Smith. They’re going to be assigned a number anyway. Are you into safe sex?

NJ/TSC: I’ve been celibate for the past 6 years.

Liberty Belle: It’s been 6 minutes for me. Actually I love to go onto the Internet where I can be 17 again. It’s the safest sex on the planet. NJ/TSC: Chat Rooms right?

Liberty Belle: Yes!

NJ/TSC: How does today’s generation compare to the generation of the past day?

Liberty Belle: They’re mean, don’t care, don’t get, and are filled with apathy. When I was protesting the sodomy laws no one showed up for the benefits or took on town hall.

NJ/TSC: What was your favorite era?

Liberty Belle: The 70’s and early 80’s when Drag made a comeback thanks to Boy George. People became more accepting of Drag.

NJ/TSC: Do you cook?

Liberty Belle: My idea of cooking is reservations. I dine at Mc Donald’s! I don’t cook! I’m not domestic and I’m not a homebody. I like to go out and have fun. I know that there’s a vacuum cleaner here somewhere but I don’t know how to use it nor do I want to. My idea of fine dining is a square fish sandwich, fries, and bourbon mixed with coke. Light a candle and you got a nice candle lit dinner for one.

NJ/TSC: What do you think of today’s Drag Queens?

Liberty Belle: It’s all ego! They’re too serious and they think that they’re on Broadway. They also have a bad attitude which I don’t put up with. I’ve shown one too many young Drag Queens the door for being rude and dishing out a negative attitude.

NJ/TSC: The latest crap being dished in the gay media is that the high number of HIV/AIDS and STD’s are a result from rejection and low-self worth and self-esteem. Care to comment?

Liberty Belle: Who wrote that article, a homopho? I don’t believe everything that I read in the paper or hear on the news. I used to work in journalism, so I know what goes on. The Gay Community is filled with self-hatred towards each other. They treat each other bad and it’s one big giant bitch!

NJ/TSC: How do you define yourself?

Liberty Belle: As a effeminate man who made a living from it.

NJ/TSC: Are you spiritual?

Liberty Belle: I’m a Wiccan! I don’t cast spells or anything like that. I believe in loving everyone with their doing the same. I’ve been a Wiccan since I was 15 years old.

NJ/TSC: Who do you want to see as the next President?

Liberty Belle: John Kerry! He’s going to be the next President.

NJ/TSC: What causes are you supporting?

Liberty Belle: Gay Adoption, Gay Rights, and Gay Marriage. I feel that Gay Marriage is going to be settled in the Supreme Court. Since your marriage isn’t recognized outside of the State where you’re married isn’t valid nowhere else it’s a waste of time.

NJ/TSC: How many relationships have you had?

Liberty Belle: I had one lover for 19 years who was killed in a car accident. His name is Robert and he’s the only man who I wanted to be with. Now, I’m not looking for a long term relationship. NJ/TSC: What type of man suits your fancy?

Liberty Belle: Believe it or not, an effeminate man. I dated a 22 year old effeminate guy for 6 months. We’re still friends. We went out to dinner dressed as two effeminate men with my looking like his Grandmother. Plus with an effeminate man I can double my wardrobe. I believe that you should fall in love with the type of person who you are. Someone most like you. You’re attracted to who you are.

NJ/TSC: You’re 22 today, so you two are the same age.

Libery Belle: I’m going to be 65 in November. And I’m still going to perform and do things to help people while enjoying myself. I’m still packing a bar. The bar where I perform holds 75 people and I bring in 300 people and have no less than 200. I host live shows twice a week where the Drag Queens sing in their own voice. They sing like women it’s not Frank Sinatra in an evening gown.

NJ/TSC: What do you like to do when you’re not onstage?

Liberty Belle: I love Pro Wrestling! I’m their biggest fan. I watch it and go to matches.

NJ/TSC: You’re amazing!

Liberty Belle: Thank you! NJ/TSC: How would you like to be remembered?

Liberty Belle: As the entertainer who wanted to make people happy. If I can make one person smile and feel good I did my job. On my tombstone I plan on putting; “I’ll be back!

In the olden days, the interview ended when the tape ran out. In modern times such as now the interview ends when the battery in the cell phone runs out. This concludes Gay History 101 on the life of a Drag Queen past, present and future.

Fall In Love With Square Dancing


No doubt, you’ve seen some form of square dancing and found it fascinating to watch, to say the least. There are a couple of widely recognized forms of square dancing. The traditional square dance and the modern western square dance.

Both of these forms are considered a folk dance and the name comes from couples being organized into the shape of a square. If you’re already excited, you should be. Square dancing creates a synergy between the two people in the couple as well as the other sets of couples who form the square. The basic steps are not difficult to learn although some people do have a bit of a challenge keeping up with all the couples.

One 2014 tour of the most enjoyable aspects of square dancing is that you don’t have to decide what step to do next. This is because the dance movements are called out clearly for everyone to hear. Put these calls into the context of the music that’s playing and you’re setting yourself up to fall in love with square dancing for the first time or all over again time after time.

If you are someone who appreciates tradition in your dance square dancing is for you. The concept of square dancing is based on one step equaling a count and with as few as four counts or as many as 32 counts in a call. This type of variety is exciting for the dancers who have to listen carefully because they never know what to expect. This also keeps the dancing interesting and never boring, to say the least. Ready for a little more excitement in the mix? There are some differences between the two types of square dancing when it comes to the calls.

One type may require you to “doe-see-doe” your partner to the right while the other style may dictate turning them to the left. It means it pays to know where you’re dancing and which type is used and recognized in that area. You’ll enjoy each call more thoroughly and be able to keep step with your partner and other couples with ease.

What gets many people excited is the rhythm of many different types of music that is played for square dancing. Country music, Irish music and western music all take place and are played regularly for square dancing. Some refer to this type of music as old time tunes because it combines delightful sounds from music of long ago into beats you can square dance to.

If you’ve never tried square dancing, you owe it to yourself to get on the dance floor with a partner and enjoy a few basic lessons to get a feel of how it goes. You’re certain to fall in love with this dancing form that lets you take to the floor and receive excellent calls from the announcer on how to swing your partner next. There are no special skills you have to have to get into square dancing, just the desire to learn and the time to invest in this lovable dance form.

Sting makes WWE debut during Ultimate Warrior tribute show – Long Island MMA


According to an April 16 report from Mstars News, legendary pro wrestler Sting made his WWE debut this week with a surprise appearance during a tribute show to Ultimate Warrior. Sting, 54, is arguably the most famous and popular wrestler to have never competed inside the WWE ring, so fans were shocked to see him make a cameo for the promotion.

Sting, who spent most of his storied career competing under the TNA banner, made his debut on the WWE Network, the WWE’s new online channel that features original and archived pro wrestling content. The WWE has been giving the WWE Network a major push lately, as they try to move forward and away from the pay-per-view model.

It appears the WWE will be using Sting to help promote the WWE Network and possibly use him in some other capacity, besides just wrestling. That certainly would make sense, being that Sting is now in his mid-50s. Sting is still a huge name, but he’s past his wrestling prime. The WWE obviously thinks its worth it to use him as a bit of a brand ambassador to push WWE Network subscription sales.

Sting and Ultimate Warrior were great friends, so it was a touching moment to see the legend make his WWE debut just as the rest of the wrestling community said their goodbyes to the departed superstar. As WWE Universe knows by now, Ultimate Warrior passed away less than a month ago due to a heart attack. Sting appeared on the WWE Network to pay his respects.

Sting’s wwe wrestlers appearance on the WWE Network would seem to indicate that he has a working relationship with the WWE, but there is no word yet from the promotion that he has officially signed on. In fact, Wrestling Inc. reported that the WWE told security to remove any Sting-related signs that fans had during the recent Monday Night Raw that went down in Birmingham.

The WWE has reportedly sent Sting a contract to sign, but he hasn’t yet sent it back. All signs seem to indicate that Sting is ready to come on board as the WWE moves forward into the future. Time will tell how the situation plays out.

Sports :: Major League Baseball Players in Japan – Strangers in Paradise (Page 1 of 3)


The final match-up of the World Baseball Classic featured two teams from countries where baseball is a beloved sport – Cuba and Japan. Both countries are noted for producing fine players, some of whom are enjoying stellar careers in America. Presently, Ishiro and Matsui from Japan are two of the best and most consistent players in the majors. Making it in the big leagues in America is a big deal in Japan, a country that loves baseball and embraces its own professional teams.

American teachers first introduced the game to the island country in the 1870’s, and it firmly took root. By the turn of the century, it was sports authority in store coupon a sport throughout the nation and in 1936 the first professional teams were established. The current professional structure was created in 1950, with teams playing in either the Pacific League or the Central League.

The exchange of players between the Japanese leagues and Major League baseball is not a one-way street. The first American to play baseball in post- World War II Japan was Wallace Kaname Yonamine, a Nisei Japanese American who had played NFL Football but never had a spot on a Major League Baseball club. Yonamine had a Hall of Fame career in Japan.

When major leaguers from America first started to compete in the Japanese League, they were often at the end of their careers. In 1962, right-handed pitcher Don Newcombe became the first MLB player to sign and play with a team in Japan. During his 10 years in the majors, Newcombe posted a 149-90 mark, with 1129 strikeouts and a 3.56 ERA. He is still the only player to win Rookie of the Year, MVP and the Cy Young. Newcombe was the first of many Americans to go to the Far East to play what many consider “the” American sport.

In the past decade something has changed concerning the emigration of professional players from America to Japan. The men who go to the Japanese League are no longer at the end of their careers. They are now, more often than not, mid-career players who can’t seem to find an everyday role on a major league team. Often, these players decide to go to Japan because they will have a chance to contribute every day.

Some players find a home away from home in Japan, while others go and get some daily experience and come back to parlay that into a starting role in MLB. Still, others struggle in their foreign environs and come back looking to play in the big leagues, even if it’s as a utility player.

Alex Cabrera is an example of the first type of player, while Lou Merloni seemed as though he might fit the bill for the second category but didn’t quite get a break in Japan or make the cut when he came back to his homeland. Gabe Kapler illustrates a player in the final and least desirable of the three groups.

First baseman Alex Cabrera, who spent nine seasons in the minors with the Chicago Cubs, Tampa Bay Devil Rays, and Arizona Diamondbacks, finally got his chance to play Major League Baseball in 2000. In 31 games he hit 5 homer runs, scored 10 runs, knocked in 14 RBI and accumulated a .262 BA. Then, in 2001, the Seibu Lions of the Japan Pacific League bought his contract from the Diamondbacks. For Cabrera it was the perfect move at exactly the right time.

Luke Bryan Reached The Number One Position On The Hot Country Songs Charts


About the Author:

Aldean’s parents, Barry and Debbie, divorced when he was three. He was raised by his mother, mainly in Macon, Georgia, where he went to high school at Windsor Academy. During the summer he would spend time with his father in Homestead, Florida.

Before going to work during the day, his dad would map out guitar chords on notebook paper to show Jason where to place his fingers to play the chords. Jason sat and practiced all day while his dad was at work. When his dad got home, he got out his own guitar and they played together.

Aldean and Clarkson’s performance on November 10, 2010 at the CMA Awards received positive recognition, and debuted at #59 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart from unsolicited airplay for the week of November 20, 2010.

Alabama were like The Beatles for me so working with him was definitely one of the highlights. I mean, both of those guys were really cool moments, but, if I had to pick one highlight, it would be working with Randy this year.”

Jason Aldine Williams is an American country music singer, known professionally as Jason Aldean. Since 2005, Aldean has recorded for Broken Bow Records, an independent record label for which he has released four albums and twelve singles. His 2005 self-titled debut and 2009 album Wide Open are both certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), while 2007’s Relentless is certified gold.

From age 14, after watching the country-music awards on TV, he wanted to perform on stage. With his mother’s help, he performed at the local VFW hall in Macon, Georgia. He sang John Anderson’s song “Seminole Wind” and Tracy Lawrence’s “Sticks and Stones”. He would later say that the entire audience all ten applauded, and that he almost had to be dragged off the stage because he was hooked on performing. He began performing at area talent contests and local fairs. At 15, he joined the “house band” at Georgia nightspot Nashville South.

The next single, the David Lee Murphy-Jim Collins co-write “Big Green Tractor,” became Aldean’s third Number One hit. Wide Open debuted at #2 on the Top Country Albums chart. “The Truth” became the album’s third consecutive Number One hit in January 2010, with “Crazy Town” being the album’s fourth single, peaking at #2 on the country charts.

Soon, after hearing a song only a few times, he could play it. His early favorites included George Strait’s “The Cowboy Rides Away”, Hank Williams Jr.’s “The Blues Man”, and Alabama’s “My Home’s in Alabama”. Both parents encouraged young Jason as he progressed musically.

Of his singles, four have reached the number one position on the Hot Country Songs charts: “Why”, “She’s Country”, “Big Green Tractor” and “The Truth”, and six more have reached top ten on the same chart.

Aldean released a new single in August 2010, “My Kinda Party,” which entered the Hot Country Songs chart at #41, which is the lead-off single from his album of the same name, released on November 2, 2010. It marks as Aldean’s tenth top 10 country hit. He also collaborated with Kelly Clarkson on the intimate duet “Don’t You Wanna Stay”.

Jason Aldean performed with Bryan Adams on an episode of CMT Crossroads in the beginning of May, and the episode premiered on June 26, 2009.In an interview with Shave Magazine, Jason explained that working with Bryan on Crossroads “was great. He was a lot of fun.” But the real highlight for Jason was working with Randy Owen. “I am a big fan of Alabama so I got a chance to work with Randy Owen on this album (it did not make the album but it eventually made a bonus track). It was really cool.—Jason-Singles-Reached-The-Number-One-Position-On-The-Hot-Country-Songs-Charts/2138862

Aldean released a seventh single titled “She’s Country” to radio on December 1, 2008. It is the first single from his third album Wide Open which was released on April 7, 2009. The single debuted at #51 on the Hot Country Songs chart in late-November 2008.

Who doesn’t love musicals? The operatic feel of them. The memorable songs. The sometimes great dance choreography that accompanies them. Although Hollywood doesn’t make as many musicals as they used to, there’s no denying that some of the best movies in cinematic history did happen to be musicals.


This docu-musical follows the amazing life of the song and dance legend Ben Vereen, through music, interviews, told through his one man show.

Therefore, it would be almost downright criminal of me to not make a preview hub for them this year. Sadly, I wasn’t able to make a preview hub last year for this genre because there simply wasn’t enough musicals coming out in 2013 to justify a preview hub. Fortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case for 2014, so I’m honored to present my previews for the best musicals coming out next year. Like all my previous preview hubs, I basically offer the reader all the information they’ll need on their favorite movie coming out next year. Little things like casting information and it’s inevitable release date.

50 Shades of F****D UP


Jersey Boys is a musical biography of the Four Seasons-the rise, the tough times and personal clashes, and the ultimate triumph of a group of friends whose music became symbolic of a generation. Far from a mere tribute concert (though it does include numbers from the popular Four Seasons songbook), Jersey Boys gets to the heart of the relationships at the center of the group-with a special focus on frontman Frankie Valli, the small kid with the big falsetto. In addition to following the quartet’s coming of age as performers, the core of the show is how an allegiance to a code of honor learned in the streets of their native New Jersey got them through a multitude of challenges: gambling debts, Mafia threats and family disasters. Jersey Boys is a glimpse at the people behind a sound that has managed to endure for over four decades in the hearts of the public.

5 stories to watch this week at the 2014 SEC Baseball Tournament in Hoover


Alabama Baseball G16 vs Kentucky

Kentucky pitcher/first baseman A.J. Reed is one of the top players in the country, and he’ll be in action at the Hoover Met this week (Vasha Hunt /

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – The SEC Tournament begins at the Hoover Met on Tuesday as 12 of the league’s 14 teams shoot for a title.

Only Missouri and Auburn will be watching from home. The tournament drew 134,496 fans last year – a new record. Under the current contract, the SEC Tournament is slated to be at the Hoover Met through 2016.

But for this year’s event, here are some story lines to watch.

A.J.’s invasion: The Kentucky slugger and ace pitcher is one of the top players in the country. He leads the nation in home runs with 23 and is near the top nationally with an SEC-leading 70 RBIs. In a tournament where deep fences, dead bats and mush balls prevent many home runs, Reed will be the most powerful man. Reed’s also the SEC leader in wins, as the lefty is 10-2 with a 2.11 ERA.

Don’t expect to see many home runs. The spacious confines of the Hoover Met run 340 feet down the lines, 385 to the alleys and 405 to center – deeper than the other parks of the SEC. Fast outfielders are a key for teams defensively as the big hits offensively will be doubles. Teams have to manufacture runs in this era of college baseball and while there will be great baseball, there won’t be much scoring.

Florida’s the favorite: The Gators clinched the No. 1 seed with one game left in the regular season. The Gators are a deep and young team, starting five freshmen and sophomores. Freshmen Logan Shore (7-2, 1.47) and A.J. Puk (4-2, 3.45) shine on the mound. Catcher Taylor Gushue (.317, 5 HR, 42 RBI) is one of the conference’s best. West champion Ole Miss is the No. 2 seed.

Bubble teams: Heading into this weekend, Perfect Game projected 10 SEC teams to make the NCAA Tournament. Games here could have regional hosting implications. Currently, Florida, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt and South Carolina are projected as hosts. Kentucky, Mississippi State, Alabama and LSU should be safely in, and perhaps Texas A&M as well, but Arkansas and Tennessee are on the bubble and need good showings. Georgia, at 26-28, likely has to win the tournament to reach the NCAA regional round. LSU could vault its way into one of the 16 regional hosts.

Top MLB Draft prospects: There are several of them here, and some will get picked very early. LSU pitcher Aaron Nola is a projected top 10 pick and has a slight chance at No. 1 overall. Vanderbilt pitcher Tyler Beede, a first round pick out of high school who turned down the pros, will be a first-round pick again this year. Kentucky LHP/1B A.J. Reed is a borderline first round talent. Pitchers Chris Ellis (Ole Miss), Chris Oliver (Arkansas), Spencer Turnbull (Alabama), Jacob Lindgren (Mississippi State), catcher Greyson Greiner (South Carolina) and outfielder Brian Anderson (Arkansas) are also in Baseball America’s top 100 draft-eligible prospects. And you’ll see them in action at the Hoover Met. This doesn’t even include a number of freshmen or sophomores that could be first-round picks in future years.

Atlanta Braves Tickets – Time To Get Lowe!


It didn’t happen exactly like everyone thought it would. Truth be told, many Atlanta fans were still hot under the collar about John Smoltz being shipped out to Boston. But while they were still ticked, Frank Wren, Braves general manager, was getting Lowe more and more interested. When the dust settled, Lowe had accepted a $60 million, four-year offer.

Wren believes the club had a fruitful offseason and feels most of the players are excited about going to Spring training but he’s not sure they would have said the same just 10 days prior. Some have already begun to question why the Braves paid so much to sign Lowe, who is a 35-year old veteran. Word is that Lowe is the only top-caliber pitcher that could help the Braves be competitive. More importantly, however, if the Mets or the Phillies had snatched up Lowe, it’s certain the Braves couldn’t have stayed competitive.

“We’re happy it turned out this way,” Wren said. “And we’re very excited that Derek has joined our staff. I think we’re in a position where he’s the perfect fit.”

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that Lowe is a pretty happy camper and looking forward to Spring Training, which starts soon. “This organization wants to get back on top and back on top fast,” Lowe said. “I look forward to mingling with everybody.”

Rewind the time reel a week back, and many people weren’t too happy to make an association with the Braves. Unsuccessful tries to win Jake Peavy, Rafael Furcal and A.J. Burnett turning into a smoldering cauldron after Smoltz announced he would be ending a 22-year relationship with the Braves to accept a more appealing offer made by the Red Sox.

Wren held on to his promise to improve the rotation and within a matter of days, he had signed Kenshin Kawakami and Lowe. Lowe, who was born in Dearborn, Michigan, made his debut into major league baseball back in 1997. Since that time, Lowe has completed three seasons with the Dodgers.

There are those who believe that the Braves still need to power up their outfield. Wren is optimistic it will happen before the regular season starts. Although it was the belief that Burnett and Peavy would have been a more perfect fit than Lowe, it was undeniable that both mets baseball would have been a greater cost since Peavy would have been a minimum of $63 million.

Whats the contrast between Lowe and Burnett? Lowes averaged 15 wins and 208 innings in seven years while Burnett has managed 200 innings three times in his entire career with two of those times taking place when he was entering the free-agent market.

I hope everyone expects a lot out of me, Lowe said. Ive always loved that challenge. I want people to expect me to beat the teams in our division and if I dont, I want people to be upset.

With Spring Training and opening day just around the corner, were sure to find out.
