But who is Robert Nkemdiche? He’s 6-5, 260 pounds and comes from Loganville (Georgia) Grayson, which means...

Tweet Lindsay Vonn, the famed Olympic Skier most recently linked to Tiger Woods when she’s not showing her legs to David Letterman, has a real crisis just two weeks after that news broke: she’s severely injured her knee and placed her Olympics hopes in jeopardy. According to a number of reports, Vonn “sustained tears to the anterior cruciate...

Tweet By: Azucena Rasilla (@ChroniclesOfAzu) I attend Art Murmur/First Friday almost every month, in fact, I look forward to it. I get the chance to introduce this fantastic event to those friends who are either, not from Oakland, or have never been. Last night was no exception; I brought along a friend, who although from Oakland had never attended First Friday,...

Tweet WOW! This is great news. If you recall from a past post, City Slicker Farms, one of Oakland’s great non-profits, is having a ground breaking of its planned and now underway West Oakland Urban Farm and Park.

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xR81KAsOquM Frank Ocean Called Rihanna A Ho? It’s now reported that Frank Ocean Called Rihanna A Ho to Chris Brown, causing Brown to go off into a blind rage, and hit Ocean. That assertion comes from the website Media Take Out, which reports that news exclusively. Why Mr. Ocean would do that to Mr. Brown is not...

Tweet President Obama introduced his plan for comprehensive immigration reform just about two hours ago, today, in Las Vegas. And from watching his speech, it’s clear Obama didn’t use a teleprompter this time around. The President reached for a set of notes tucked away in his right inside suit pocket, and then after a time, just talked. Here’s...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9UlM8alC9A The news was that a Korean man was executed for eating his kids. That’s unarguably sick, but even sicker still is the fact that when we, Carol and I, did a search for the news on Google, all of these references to “Korean man” eating a variety of things, like cats, came up. That’s...

Tweet Newsvine is a news aggregator of sorts. What a news aggregator is and does is collect content that the poster considers news. That means when you, the poster, has news content and places it on Newsvine, that ads to its collection – and ads a link back to the original site of the content. Newsvine’s contracted with a service this blogger uses...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mtts0tvSsH8 Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn are in pop culture news again, and not just for his play at Torrey Pines, or that Vonn won the World Cup giant slolum today, but for rumors that Woods and Vonn are dating. What’s interesting to this blogger is that in 2010, Vonn basically mocked Tiger by saying, in reference...

Tweet Lance Armstrong and the Chevron Ecuador environmental lawsuit attorneys the same PR team in common. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hnnfJy7ri4 Yes, you can get off the floor, it’s true. The same attorneys, publicists and crisis managers who have helped Armstrong dodge justice for the past decade are the same team of consultants supporting plaintiff’s...

Tweet This is Abraham’s Rule For Media: People Are Voyeurs. That means media works because people want to know about people. This is a rule that’s constantly violated by media journalists and editors and on a daily basis. They violate the rule the moment they cry “Who cares about what Miley Cyrus does” in reaction to some tweet or...

Tweet Thanks to some fans who checked in other places, Hope Solo’s photos with her husband Jerramy Stevens are still up on her WhoSay account. Last week, this space reported that she took all of her photos of she and her new husband off Twitter – that’s normally a sign that something’s wrong. It’s common for anyone to take such...

Tweet Danica Patrick is officially divorced. Whatever lead to Danica’s walking into The Superior Court Of Arizona’s Maricopa County Courthouse and filing her own divorce, without an attorney, she did it on New Year’s Eve. The official stamp on the document and her signature has a date write in area that reads December 31st, 2012: the last...

Tweet CES 2013 is history, and as this blogger sits comfortably in the hallway at the Las Vegas Convention Center blogging, people, carts, and lift-trucks go by carrying things out of the building. Signs are coming down. Workers are festive. (A big shout-out to Tout.com for sponsoring coverage!) Considering the 150,000 attendees, and record size of exhibit...

Tweet The City Of Oakland has suddenly adopted a head-in-the-sand, protectionist, and just plain stupid social media strategy that results in a series of wrong-headed approaches that don’t protect the elected officials it claims to help. Today, the City of Oakland issued another email announcing a press conference about its silly municipal ID program...

Tweet On a vote of 257 to 167 the U.S. House Of Representatives voted to pass what’s called the “Fiscal Cliff” bill called The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012. But what is the bill and does it actually cause the deficit to go down or decrease spending? Here’s a summary and the full text of the 157 – page legislation. Summary: The...

President Obama...

Tweet This is really annoying: The Nieman Journalism Lab created a series of articles on the “future of journalism” where they looked to people they openly said were the “smartest people we know” then put up a giant photo montage that shows a large group of white people – you have to focus to spot the lone black person. So, scrolling...

Tweet The City and County of Los Angeles stagged a gun buy-back program that was very successful. So much so it yielded a rocket and grenade launcher. According to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, the event resulted in a whopping total of 2,037 firearms, including 75 assault weapons and a rocket launcher. In fact, if they had more money for the grocery cards...
