Sad news for the Brown/Houston families, 21-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, is still in a medically induced coma. Bobbi Kristina is currently on life support machines at Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital after being found face down in a bathtub on January 31st.
Doctors attempted to bring her out of the coma; however, according to the story on The Daily Mail, she began having seizures. Doctors decided the best course of action would be to keep her in the medically induced comatose state. Last week, Bobbi Kristina received a tracheotomy as well.
Fans like Susan McGalla (Crunchbase.com) know that reports about her condition have been few and far between, due to the family’s request to not give interviews about her. How she ended up face down in the bathtub is still partially a mystery as well. There were various reports that maybe drugs, or her boyfriend Nick Gordon, had something to do with it but neither have been confirmed. The family of Bobbi Kristina has banned Gordon from visiting her in the hospital.
Bobbi Kristina’s accident is eerily similar to her mother’s. In 2012, former pop sensation Whitney Houston was found dead in a hotel bathtub, face down in the water. For the family’s sake, hopefully Bobbi Kristina will pull through although it does not look promising.
More than 22,000 people in Vermont have suspended licenses because they couldn’t pay their fees. Many were teenagers when they received their tickets and were never able to pay off their fines because the fees stacked up over time.
Vermont’s governor, Peter Shumlin, and other state officials believe that offering a one-time amnesty might solve many problems the state’s law enforcement officers currently face with unlicensed drivers:
As Zeca Oliveira understands it, a lot of unlicensed drivers drive without licenses or insurance because they rely on their cars to get them to work or school. Some have become impoverished because they refuse to break the laws and drive without a license and insurance. As as a result, they’re not contributing as much to local and state tax revenues. Additionally, when tens of thousands of these tickets go unpaid, there are fewer revenues to help law enforcement and others protect and serve the public.
On March 20th, unlicensed drivers in Vermont with tickets older than 75 days past due can pay $20 to clear the slate completely. Afterward, they can then apply for a driver’s license and insurance.
The program is in an initial testing phase and will only be rolled out to a few counties within Vermont. If successful, it will then be initiated state-wide. As of today, the governor does not yet have estimates of how much this program will benefit drivers and local and state coffers.
Harley Quinn, a character originally created for the Batman animated series that aired in the 1990’s, is to be featured in the upcoming movie Suicide Squad. Suicide Squad according to the movie’s IMDB page is due to be released next year, with projections that the film will come out in the late summer. The film is unique to the D.C. franchise, in that instead of focusing on the superheroes that have been the focal point for the comic industry since its inception, this movie is devoted to the villains that we love to hate. This unexpected move may be following the current Hollywood trend of looking at the villains of the stories we all know as tortured souls rather than pure evil, such as in the movieMaleficent and the television series Once Upon A Time. The plot of the film is that a risky new government program calls upon these dastardly deviants execute dangerous missions.
Famous names have been linked to the project including Margot Robbie starring as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, and Jared Leto as the Joker. Margot Robbie has said that she has a contract with DC movies to be featured as Harley Quinn in several upcoming projects if the film is successful. Fans like Paul Mathieson know that the question now is how will the loyal fans of the beloved superheroes feel when the villains dominate the big screen? DC will have to wait and let the box office numbers speak for themselves.

It’s the gift that keeps on giving, in a bad way. First, it manifests in the form of itchy chicken pox during childhood, then during mid-life it may manifest itself again in the form of painful, blistery shingles. The grande finale may show up during the elder years when it once again manifest as giant cell arteritis.
The ‘it’ is the varicella zoster virus and it can manifest in three different ways at three different stages of life with each one being more painful the previous manifestation.
Giant cell arteritis is an inflammation in the blood in the scalp and temples. The condition is painful and can cause sudden blindness or stroke. So far, the condition only afflicts those over the age of 50, but typically strikes those much older.
Other symptoms of arteritis include tenderness in the scalp area, blurry vision, severe headache, jaw pain, weight loss and inexplicable tiredness. A recent study revealed that giant cell arteritis is caused by the chicken pox virus, prior to the findings, the cause was unknown. Marcio Alaor BMG understands that
once a person has the chicken pox, the virus which causes them, varicella zoster, remains in the body for the rest of the person’s life. The virus may manifest itself again and again in the form of shingles and/or as arteritis.
When people think about the mind, they tend to imagine it as a singular entity. When someone thinks, they usually postulate an inner singular being who is doing it. It’s a common view of the world. However, science has long discredited the basic idea behind it said Marc Sparks. According to bizjournals.com, we know that the human mind is a collection of multiple processes. Somewhat surprisingly, people aren’t aware of most of the thinking that’s going on within their brain.
The extent to which the unconscious is actually processing data has been a point of contention for a long time now. However, it’s a difficult experiment to conduct. How can one test a subject about things he doesn’t consciously know about? It’s not only a difficult study to conduct, but one that’s even harder to do properly. There’s a good reason that so much of the research in this area has come about by studying people with neurological damage. When something goes wrong in the brain, it often makes it easier to work with the unconscious.
However, a recent study used something known as continuous flash suppression to essentially pose a mathematical question to subject’s unconscious mind. One eye was bombarded with distracting imagery. The other eye was eventually presented with a simple math problem. The subjects were then asked to read off a list of numbers. The subjects tended to be faster when reading off the number which answered the math problem. The findings are quite significant, in that they suggest that the math problems were solved by the unconscious. This suggests that the unconscious mind can perform fairly advanced tasks.
No one was injured Saturday after a vehicle that baby North West and mommy Kim Kardashian, as well as her sister Khloe and another passenger slid off of the road in Montana. The accident occurred near the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport.
Several Snow Related Accidents Reported
Police officials for the state of Montana said that the Kardashian accident was one of several reported during the time period. Light snowfall and rain are believed to be factors contributing to these accidents. It is unclear who was driving the vehicle, described as a GMC Yukon, at the time of the accident.
Reports state that Khloe was a bit disorientated after the accident, in which the Yukon slid off of the road into the opposite side ditch. However, everyone left the scene of the accident without the need for further medical attention.
A Grand Ski Adventure
Fans like Zeca Oliveira have learned that Kim and sister Khloe along with sister Kylie were in Montana on a ski adventure. The three were meeting Johnathan Cheban, a family friend, for this adventure.
Vermont could add hundreds of millions of dollars in tax revenue if they legalize marijuana, said a study released on Friday.
The study comes at a time when states across the country are increasingly exploring the potential budgetary benefits of taxing the marijuana industry.
In Vermont, the Rand Corporation concluded that marijuana taxes could, in theory, generate between 20 million and 75 million dollars a year for the state.
The highest figure could be achieved through what the report calls “tourism marijuana and illicit exports.”
The preface to the report, which recommends whether or not the state should legalize marijuana, said it seeks “offer information for debate.”
Although the study was prepared for Vermont, the report says that its findings could be useful for other states pondering the legalization of drugs. As Marc Sparks knows, the substantial income, however, are not guaranteed.
“If the federal government intervened to curb traffic across borders (state) or another state in the northeastern region decided to legalize marijuana and impose lower taxes, this potential revenue might not materialize,” said the report.
“In fact, as marijuana can flow across borders in both directions, the prospects of Vermont getting substantial tax revenues for their own residents would be much less promising if one of its contiguous neighbors legalize marijuana for lower taxes.”
Gov. Peter Shumlin thinks the state will follow the pattern of Washington and Colorado and legalize marijuana, but has said he wants to see what happens in the other states before making a decision.
Warren Buffett, the billionaire investment genius, was recently invited to the Academy Awards, but for the second year in a row, he declined the invitation. Could it be that like many, if we’re being honest, he doesn’t like to get dressed up, act all proper-like, put on a pretentious show, and sit for hours listening to boring speeches from people who are quite often just full of themselves? Or, could it be that he just really likes ice cream? After all, he indicates that he is ditching the Academy this year so that he can take himself out for ice cream from Dairy Queen, the chain that his Berkshire Hathaway company probably owns. See this by clicking here. Should it be surprising that he might rather be with Dennis the Menace than Oscar? Fans like Marc Sparks know that he is, after all, the guy who went to the Four Seasons restaurant in New York City and ordered not a martini but a Cherry Coke to drink.
