    A Rochester woman has been accused of drowning her 10-day-old son in a bathtub.

    Markiya Mitchell, 25, was charged with second-degree murder in connection with the death of her son Jeremiah Mitchell, said Rochester Police Chief Michael Ciminelli.

    Mitchell pleaded not guilty in City Court Tuesday morning and was remanded to the Monroe County Jail without bail.

    Court documents allege that she placed her 10-day-old son in 8 to 10 inches of water in a bathtub inside her apartment at 31 Locust St. Jeremiah was submerged in bath water for one to two hours, according to court documents.

    Another adult in the home found the baby unresponsive in the bathtub and called 911, according to the department's major crimes unit. Officers went to Mitchell's Locust Street home about 2:30 p.m. Monday.

    Jeremiah was taken to Rochester General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Capt. Mark Wiater said in a news release.

    Mitchell was taken into custody at the scene and interviewed by investigators at the Public Safety Building. Police did not identify the adult who found Jeremiah in the tub but said "that person has been fully cooperative with the investigation," according to major crimes.

    Ciminelli said in a news release that Mitchell "admitted to intentionally drowning the baby in the bathtub with the purpose of ending his life."

    Mitchell has a 7-year-old child who is currently in the care of another family member. The child was not home at the time of the incident, officers said.

    Assistant District Attorney Amanda Balling said she could not discuss the details of the case since the investigation remained active. She said the case would be presented to a Monroe County grand jury.

    Mitchell has a criminal record, according to police, who would not outline her criminal history. Authorities said they could not discuss Mitchell's mental state.

    Monroe County spokesman Jesse Sleezer said he could not confirm or deny whether a Child Protective Services case was linked to Mitchell and her children.

    Additional charges are pending.

    Mitchell is scheduled to return to City Court Friday morning for a preliminary hearing

    I embarrassed my pops at the state fair when I was 7. There was a lady with one arm and she walked in front of us and I yelled "She has one arm, look!" Everyone turned toward us, that lady walked off and my pops gave me a look like the fuck wrong with you and smacked me upside the head. That was bad.

    My Everclear Extraction Hash Recipe

    Everclear2MasonJarsMetalMeshCoffeeF.jpg

    You'll Need:

    Everclear [a good substitute for this is 99% isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol.. but it won't taste as good for reasons i'm still unclear on..]
    2 Mason Jars w/ Lids
    1 Metal Mesh Coffee Filter [Cone Shaped]
    1 Spoon
    1 Pyrex Dish/Plate
    3 Or More Grams Of Stem/Seed Free Shake

    The THC molecule consists of over 300 smaller building blocks that fall into a number of groups.. The most interesting of these are cannabinoids & what are known as CBD's. The cannabinoids possess psychoactive properties while the CBD's possess the therapeutically beneficial aspects. & Somewhere in the mists of these divine gifts lurk shadowy agents that act as inhibitors to keep you from experiencing the total effects of that particular strain. The following process is one of a handful of ways to extract & isolate the psychoactive effects from the restraints of inhibition.. In layman's terms, if you take your time & do this right, it's gonna fuck your silly ass up..

    Step 1: 1st, clean every stem, seed & superfluous particle of debris from the shake you plan on using.. Remember that [much like life] you get out of it what you put in.. Next... Freeze your everclear, weed shake & mason jars for 4 hours before you begin because cold is the key to separating the tricombs [thc resin glands] from the plant matter. When you're ready to begin, take your everclear, weed shake, & 1 mason jar out of the freezer & set a timer for 4 minutes & 45 seconds.. Pour the shake into your mason jar, add just enough everclear to cover top of the shake, & then screw the lid back on tightly. Press start on your count down timer & begin to swirl the mixture in a washing machine style, as opposed to shaking the jar randomly, until the time is up.

    Step 2: Grab the 2nd mason jar from the freezer, open it, & set the coffee filter within the mouth of the jar. Then, with one hand holding the filter in place & the other gripping the jar containing the weed/everclear mixture, carefully pour the contents slowly so that all land within the mesh filter. Sitting the 1st jar to the side & grabbing your spoon, you want to quickly strain the excess liquid from the soggy shake. If you watch closely, you'll notice a greenish color in the last of the liquid that you've strained. That is gonna be the chlorophyll which has been dissolved by the water in the alcohol.. This reaction takes place after 5 minutes of plant matter/alcohol contact. We want as little chlorophyll in our hash as possible so stop straining immediately when you detect it. Close your 2nd mason jar's lid tightly & place it back into the freezer for 20 minutes.


    Phase1.jpg

    Step 3: Take the 2nd jar from the freezer & swirl it's contents around to loosen the tricomb mud from the bottom of the jar & pour it into the pyrex dish. Let it dry in a lint/dust free area until all liquid is gone & the dish's remaining contents have air dried for 2 hours.. When this method has been mastered, your hash should come out perfectly golden.

    Picture065.jpg

    Step 4: Heat enough water to fill the bottom of a shallow pan a few centimeters & then sit the dish containing the hash in the water. After about 30 seconds, the hash should easily scrape up with a razor blade & can be smoked in a joint or pressed into a solid piece to be later sliced off in chunks for smoking through bongs or pipes..

    its time this got its own thread. The Breakfast Club has changed the game in radio. They are now leaps and bounds ahead of their competition.

    So far in 2016, they have had some DOPE interviews.

    had to start the thread off with the one that coined the term "chatty patty"

    hilarious but somewhere, a few gems were dropped

    Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren asserted that former NFL player Colin Kaepernick does not deserve GQ magazine's Citizen of the Year Award because he and other liberals are trying to re-institute segregation in America.

    During a Wednesday morning appearance on Fox & Friends, host Ainsley Earhardt explained that the magazine compares Kaepernick to other black activist athletes like Jackie Robinson and Muhammad Ali because he started a movement against systemic racism by kneeling during the national anthem.

    Lahren responded angrily, calling for media to "look at the actual heroes we have: law enforcement, military, everyday heroes like that."

    "And not someone who simply disrespected the flag," she added.

    Lahren also slammed a New York Times article reflecting the concerns of black parents who wonder if their children can be friends with white children.

    The Fox News contributor suggested that the column was "disgustingly racist" because white parents would be condemned for asking the same question about their kids.

    "Because it's white people, we live in this obscure world where Colin Kaepernick is citizen of the year and it's okay to say, 'Can my children be friends with white people?'" Lahren complained. "That is liberal logic for you, welcome to their world."

    "It is so odd that we had generations of Americans -- black and white, brown and every color of the rainbow -- that fought segregation and now we have liberals that are actively wanting to segregate us by political party, by color in some cases," she opined. "It's disgusting."

    Basically, he made moves to try to install his wife as his successor, but his party said it wasn't going to allow that. Zimbabweans don't fuck with her. Plus there have been war veterans who have been loyal to him for all these decades, but he started making moves to get rid of them to position her to take over.



    President Robert Mugabe is said to be confined to his home in Harare but unconfirmed reports says his wife Grace, who was bidding to succeed him as president, has fled to Namibia.

    The military's action followed the sacking of Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa, a fierce rival of Mrs Mugabe.

    His whereabouts are also unclear.

    President Mugabe, 93, has been in control of Zimbabwe since it gained independence from Britain in 1980.

    But the power struggle over who might succeed him, between Mrs Mugabe and Mr Mnangagwa, has split the ruling Zanu-PF party in recent months.

    Evidence that Mrs Mugabe's circle was being pressured by the military came on Wednesday when one of her key allies made a public apology for criticising the head of the army a day earlier.

    Regional bloc the Southern African Development Community (SADC) is due to hold emergency talks in Botswana on Thursday to discuss the crisis.

    Zimbabwean opposition leader Tendai Biti told the BBC he wanted to see a transitional authority in place.

    "It is urgent that we go back to democracy. It is urgent that we go back to legitimacy but we need a transitional period and I think, I hope, that dialogue can now be opened between the army and Zimbabweans, [that] dialogue can be opened between the army and regional bodies such as the SADC and, indeed, the African Union," he said.

    married high school art teacher has been arrested for allegedly having sex with four of her students, including two on the same day.

    Jessie Lorene Goline, 25, of Jonesboro, Arkansas, was taken into custody on Wednesday after a long investigation into the suspected trysts she was having with the teenage boys.

    The probe at Marked Tree High School was sparked by a parent who accused Goline of having sexual liaisons with several students.

    Staff stepped in when the parent then threatened to 'do bodily harm' to one of the teachers, ArkansasOnline reported.
    The alleged victims then came forward and told police about their illicit relationships with Goline, police say.

    One told investigators she came onto him during class, telling him 'how good he looked.' He said she also sent him a photo of her in a thong.

    4488AE3700000578-0-image-a-81_1505974486999.jpg

    According to authorities, another said Goline picked him up and took him to her apartment in the afternoon.
    They allegedly had sex, and she dropped him back at Marked Tree High School later that day.
    He told investigators another classmate was at her apartment later that night.

    All four of the students had started texting with the art teacher, and said the exchanges became more sexually charged over time.

    Three of the students were from the Marked Tree School District and another was from the East Poinsett County School District.

    She is facing only one count of sexual assault because only one of the four students she allegedly slept with was under 18.


    Goline claimed that the underage teen lied about his age.

    She told school officials she found out after they had sex that he was 'way younger than what he had told her,' according to court documents.

    When Marked Tree Principal Matt Wright asked her if she had inappropriate contact with students she responded 'I'm not going to lose my husband,' but added, 'We had sex,' according to KAIT-TV.

    Wright said the school officials were in the middle of calling a hotline to report the art teacher when she came into his office crying. He asked her what was wrong, and it was then he says, that she confessed.
    Goline was booked into the Craighead County Detention Center Wednesday afternoon on a $5,000 bond.
    She is due back in court on October 31. If convicted she could face 10 to 40 years in prison.

  • 11/16/17--05:45: Fair or Foul?
  • I need some input. Over the summer I damn near broke up with my girl because she somehow hacked into my phone and found some explicit texts that I had been sending back and forth with a former female coworker. It never led to anything physical but she was pissed at me for betraying her trust and I was pissed at her for betraying mine by hacking into my phone.

    We both promised to never violate each other like that again.

    Fast forward to last week. Some spicy lil slut starts randomly messaging me on FB and I engaged in the conversation with her like a dummy, she was fine though...smh. This led to a bunch of explicit pics and texts sent to me by the girl....


    Long story short, my girl hacked my phone again. Whatever she's using, she doesn't even need access to my phone to do it. She literally read messages from my phone from her phone. So now she's pissed and ready to break up cuz I betrayed her trust again, and I'm pissed cuz she betrayed mine again too....am I wrong for being pissed? I feel like my privacy was invaded and I probably wouldn't have even pursued anything else with the other girl...just was doing shit just to do it. Smh

    CNN is on the television in the living room of Antoinette Brown and Travon King’s small, but tidy house Wednesday morning here on the city’s far east side, a couple blocks south of 8 Mile Road.

    A report comes on about a tweet sent by Donald Trump, wondering if he would receive a thank you from three UCLA basketball players he helped gain a release from Chinese detention after they were arrested on three counts of shoplifting last week.

    “I’ll thank him,” Antoinette interrupted, speaking to the TV. “If Trump helps us, if he helps Wendell, I won’t stop thanking him. He helped get three basketball players who were guilty get out. I pray he’ll help get my innocent son out. And if he does, I’ll thank him and thank him and thank him.”

    Wendell Brown, 30, is a former football star in Detroit, a standout at powerhouse King High School and then a three-year starting linebacker at Ball State in Indiana where he graduated in 2009. He later played for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League, a number of arena teams and even a professional league in Austria. He also coached the game, at King High and then a season as an assistant at Adrian College, a D-III program in Michigan.

    In 2015, he found his way to Chongqing, China, a city of some 18 million in the southwest part of the country, to play and then, after an injury, coach in the American Football League of China. It seemed like an incredible opportunity. While there he taught English to adults and football to kids. He spoke at the U.S. Embassy about the game. To supplement his income, he opened a cross training business, Brown Elite Fitness.

    As a 6-foot, 225-pound African-American in the middle of China, he stood out. Brown is in incredible physical condition and was a cast member once on the Discovery Network reality television show, “American Muscle.” Pictures of him putting middle-aged locals through workouts and barking motivational sayings at them – “Elite!”, “All Day!”, “Eight Days a Week”— entertained his family back home.

    “We used to joke with him, ‘You look like Billy Blanks,’ ” Antoinette said with a laugh.

    Life was great until Sept. 24, 2016, when Brown attended a birthday party for a friend at a bar. As Wendell’s side tells it, he struggled to blend in when out on the town because many Chinese assumed he was either rich or famous. That night some men wanted to drink with him, but Brown declined. They got angry and a dispute broke out. Brown was later arrested for hitting a man and causing him to lose an eye. Brown claimed he never hit anyone and only raised his arms to block bottles being thrown at him.

    Regardless, Brown was taken to the Chongqing Jiangbei detention center. He had never before been arrested. Faced with no American-style bail available, no discovery process about the evidence against him and a confusing array of laws that bear little resemblance to the United States, he’s spent the past 14 months in a Chinese jail.

    Back in Detroit, Antoinette and King, her husband of 17 years, didn’t know anything had happened for days. Antoinette said she began getting concerned when Wendell didn’t text or call; he usually checked in daily. Finally, the phone rang from his number, but it was one of his friends in China trying to explain the situation.

    The family was helpless. They were unable to have any contact with Wendell. Letters to and from that contained much information about the case were intercepted. They hired a lawyer in China, who was allowed to speak with him, but then was told that the way for this to end was to come up with $100,000 U.S. as restitution. King is a barber and Brown a hairstylist, co-owners of the small Kingz & Queenz Salon on Gratiot in this hard-hit city. Men’s haircuts start as low as $5.

    http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/16/politics/al-franken-sexual-harassment/index.html
    (CNN)A woman accused Minnesota Democratic Sen. Al Franken on Thursday of groping her and kissing her without her consent in 2006 while she was on a USO Tour overseas.

    Leeann Tweeden is now a morning news anchor on TalkRadio 790 KABC in Los Angeles and posted her story in a lengthy post on the station's website.

    CNN has reached out to Tweeden and she's expected to speak Thursday morning with CNN.

    Tweeden described the harassment as being part of a script for a USO skit where Franken wrote where he's supposed to kiss her. She writes that Franken repeatedly insisted they rehearse the kissing scene despite her protests. When she relented, Franken, "put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth."

    "Senator Franken, you wrote the script," Tweeden wrote. "But there's nothing funny about sexual assault."

    She also included a photo in which Franken appears to grabbing Tweeden's breast while she's asleep.

    "I couldn't believe it. He groped me, without my consent, while I was asleep," Tweeden writes. "I felt violated all over again. Embarrassed. Belittled. Humiliated."

    The post does not address whether Franken was reached out to for comment in advance of publishing and includes no comment from Franken or his office.

    In a statement to reporters, Franken said he doesn't remember the forced kissing, but said he shouldn't have conducted his behavior as he did in the photo.

    "I certainly don't remember the rehearsal for the skit in the same way, but I send my sincerest apologies to Leeann," Franken said. "As to the photo, it was clearly intended to be funny but wasn't. I shouldn't have done it."

    Tweeden said she's coming forward now after hearing testimony from women -- including California Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier -- who have shared similar stories of men in power who have committed sexual harassment and sexual assault.

    "I want to have the same effect on them that Congresswoman Jackie Speier had on me," Tweeden wrote. "I want them, and all the other victims of sexual assault, to be able to speak out immediately, and not keep their stories --and their anger-- locked up inside for years, or decades."

    http://www.iflscience.com/space/flat-earthers-just-held-a-conference-and-it-was-as-ridiculous-as-you-think/

    Last week on November 9 and 10, the Flat Earth International Conference took place in Raleigh, North Carolina. About 400 people are thought to have attended, flying from around the world to take part. And, well, it looked just wonderful.

    The conference included talks by various notable Flat Earth conspiracy theorists, some lovingly titled with things like “NASA and other Space Lies” and "Waking Up to Mainstream Science Lies". Tickets to attend ranged from $109 up to $249.

    Now, controversial opinion alert, but while Earth is obviously not flat, I don’t necessarily bemoan these people for meeting up. Everyone likes to feel like they belong, right?

    In the BBC video below, for example, one of the attendees just said he wanted to meet other like-minded people. I’d rather they had a different hobby, true, but some people feel alone, and just need others to talk to.
    image


    That being said, it would be nice if this flat Earth thing stayed kinda confined to small events like this. In recent times we’ve had basketball players and musicians speak out in favor of it, which you know, isn’t great. The event this year appears to have been a lot more popular than previous years.

    And then you get to some of the videos from some of the talks, which are just downright crazy. To highlight one, below is a Q&A (nod to Patheos for picking this up) from the prominent flat-Earther and YouTuber Mark Sargent. It’s weird.
    image

    If you don’t want to watch the whole thing, here are some highlights. At 12 minutes in he answers a question about getting the Flat Earth theory into schools.
    “I think we’re almost at the critical mass point,” Sargent said. “Science is gonna have to address this, plain and simple. They cannot dodge us forever.”

    My favorite bit, though, is when he answers a question about Elon Musk (no! not Elon) around 31:10. The question itself is great:

    “I was wondering, people like Elon Musk, who founded the SpaceX programme [Sargent groans in disgust], when they reach, if they actually do produce a rocket capable of reaching the dome so to speak… are they going to strike it and immediately explode, or are they going to hug the edge?”

    Can Sargent respond to that? Hell yes, he can.

    “Okay officially, Elon Musk, anything that man says is an outright lie,” he said, to applause from the audience. “Elon Musk just pulls crap out of his butt on a weekly basis.”

    The whole thing just sounds like really great fun, and I’m gutted I missed it. Fortunately, the conference is annual, and there are events in London and Sydney coming up. See you there.

    After some controversy on social media, the Amazons themselves are speaking out about their new costumes in Justice League. The DC Comics film – which brings together Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg after the death of Superman to save the planet from the threat of Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons – comes out in theaters this Friday, but the film is getting some negative attention from fans and celebrities due to the Amazon warriors’ more revealing costumes.

    The debate sparked when an image on Twitter reveled a side-by-side look at the Amazon warriors from director Patty Jenkin’s Wonder Woman and director Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the different costumes were designed by Lindy Hemming and Michael Wilkinson, respectively. Clearly, the costumes designed by Hemming are more covered, one-piece sets of armor, while Wilkinson’s designs focus more on two-piece styles of armor. Many fans, and celebrities like Jessica Chastain, believe that the new armor is a step back for women. You can see the Amazon costumes from Justice League in the above set photo.

    The women who play the Amazons in Justice League have a slightly different opinion than the public on their new costumes. Brooke Ence, who plays the Amazon Penthiselea in both movies, revealed on the Justice League red carpet that showing more skin in the new costumes “didn’t bother me at all.” Ence, who is also a CrossFit champion, added that she felt empowered in the new outfits and shared what the other women on set thought. Here is what she said (via  USA Today):

    “The girls on set, we never thought of (the new costumes) as a sexy version. It felt a little more glamorous, if anything, because we had bigger, beautiful hair, which I loved.”

    “I’m an athlete first, right? (Usually) I can’t wear anything without someone commenting about my (muscular) body. So for me, it was actually really cool to be able to show it and not immediately feel masculine, but still very feminine.”

    She also added to the argument that the Amazon’s would need armor to protect their stomachs in battle stating that, “That may be the case, but also we are super-powerful women and maybe no one’s getting that close. Maybe no one has a chance to get that close to hurt us.” Another actress, Samantha Jo, a martial artist who stars as the Amazon Euboea in Wonder Woman and Justice League, also commented how Snyder and Wilkinson made her feel confident and comfortable on set. Here is what she said:

    “I think it’s important to remember that the fighting style of the Amazons is quite different than that of a Knight, a Samurai, a Kryptonian, etc. We’ve been able to see that the Amazonian fighting is a little more acrobatic and larger than life requiring armor that allows for that kind of articulation in the body. I was overjoyed with the mobility I had and NEEDED to complete the moves asked of me.”


    Jo posted the rest of her statement online via her Twitter account, which you can read below:

    It is and I agree :( This isn't a 140 character response, but for those interested- here are my thoughts. pic.twitter.com/h44CwS9R7x

    — Samantha Jo (@SamWJo) November 14, 2017

    While the status quo tends to lean towards women shouldn’t have to be sexualized in order to portray strong female role models on screen, the positive comments the actresses who play the Amazons are making about the costumes shows that it’s okay for women to feel strong and confident – even if the outfit is revealing – if they feel comfortable wearing the costume and that there’s nothing wrong with confident women showing some skin if they want to.

    If anything, telling an actress, who feels confident in her body, that showing it off is a “step back” is a step back in itself.

    in this platform, IC posters will truly be the Community of AllHipHop. the IC won't just be a different part of the main website, IC posters will be an integral part of the entire community. we'll be able to make threads off of articles, take articles from other sites and post em on ours, post gifs at will, have access to Twitter, FB, Snap, Youtube, and others, AND we have a dedicated team to customize for future projects.

    with that said, there's been some technical issues here on the Vanilla platform that we're currently on. once the move is complete, posters will STILL be able to access this site, but it will be read-only (like the Forum of Fame currently is). as we make the transition though, there have been some issues on Vanilla. we apologize for the inconvenience, we've been tryna make this as smooth as possible.

    Former President George H.W. Bush’s spokesperson released another statement responding to allegations of sexual assault on Wednesday night, as a second woman said Bush groped her during a photo op.

    “I got sent the Heather Lind story by many people this morning,” actress Jordana Grolnick told Deadspin. “And I’m afraid that mine is entirely similar.”

    Grolnick was referring to an account from Heather Lind, who said that, four years ago, Bush sexually assaulted her during a photo op. “He touched me from behind from his wheelchair with his wife Barbara Bush by his side,” Lind said in a since-deleted Instagram post. “He told me a dirty joke. And then, all the while being photographed, touched me again.”

    Grolnick described a similar incident, when Bush and former first lady Barbara Bush went backstage to meet the cast of a play he’d seen, and of which she was a member: “We all circled around him and Barbara for a photo, and I was right next to him,” she told Deadspin. “He reached his right hand around to my behind, and as we smiled for the photo he asked the group, ‘Do you want to know who my favorite magician is?’ As I felt his hand dig into my flesh, he said, ‘David Cop-a-Feel!’”

    The former first lady, Grolnick said, said something like “He’s going to get himself put into jail!” Lind, in her case, said Barbara Bush had said, “Not again.”


    Bush’s spokesperson did not respond to TPM’s questions on Wednesday. He told Deadspin, in his second statement on the matter:

    “At age 93, President Bush has been confined to a wheelchair for roughly five years, so his arm falls on the lower waist of people with whom he takes pictures. To try to put people at ease, the president routinely tells the same joke — and on occasion, he has patted women’s rears in what he intended to be a good-natured manner. Some have seen it as innocent; others clearly view it as inappropriate. To anyone he has offended, President Bush apologizes most sincerely.”

    The previous day, the same spokesperson, Jim McGrath, told various outlets: “President Bush would never — under any circumstance — intentionally cause anyone distress, and he most sincerely apologizes if his attempt at humor offended Ms. Lind.”

    Deadspin’s Dave McKenna noted in his report on Grolnick’s allegation that he had found, in previous reporting, two women who had tweeted about Bush making the “David Cop-a-feel” joke on Apr. 4, 2014.
