"The Life And Times Of Prophecy"
Eight-Division World Champion Manny Pacquiao and MMA Fighter Daniel Puder took a breather from off the Red Carpet yesterday to pose with their ladies, Manny’s wife Maria Geraldine “Jinkee” Jamora, and Daniel’s girlfriend Brittney Lozano.
The four were out in support of the release of Manny’s Cologne, “MP8“, which sounds like a new and improved digital downloadable music file, but I’m pretty sure it stands for “Manny Pacquiao” and the 8 as in Eight-Division World Champion.
Manny is also in town to make final preparations for his fight this coming Saturday, May 7th against against “Sugar” Shane Mosley at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Daniel Puder is a Mixed Martial Artist who has risen to fame from his stints on World Wrestling Entertainment, and his national campaigning against Bullying.

Emma Watson has apparently become the latest victim of “Bullying” by the student body at Brown University. Emma, widely known for her portrayal of Hermione Granger in the wildly popular and successful Harry Potter franchise, has reportedly been taunted by class mates, stalked, harassed and berated throughout her entire time at Brown University, where she was finishing out her Sophomore year.
At a recent football game, where the crowd continued to harass her, Emma required security to protect her as she refused to leave the game’s attendance.
As of right now, Emma has not announced where she will be transferring, but I find it unfortunate that a young woman as successful as herself is still just as susceptible to bullying. Bullying has now become a worldwide epidemic, even driving young children to suicide and making suicide pacts.
Whether Emma tries to continue with Ivy League level schools or not, it is clear that many people will feel intimidated by her success, and she will garner much jealousy and disdain. I would say though, if not for her pixie cut, she might have had more admirers, but of course, that’s still no excuse.
We wish you the best Emma, no matter what happens. And don’t be mad that everyone else is mad that you can buy and sell every one of them 10 times a day
NBA Comissioner David Stern fined Kobe Bryant $100,000 for what he said were “offensive and inexcusable” comments made during last night’s home game against the San Antonio Spurs. Kobe used an expletive and an anti-gay slur against a referee after giving the Lakers star a technical foul.
Kobe apologized publicly today stating that his use of the word were used in the heat of the moment of the game, and do not reflect the way he feels about the gay and lesbian community. Kobe also had a phone conversation with Joe Solomonese, President of the Human Rights Campaign, apologizing for his actions.
Solomonese gave a statement that he had a very sincere conversation with Kobe, and they applaud his ability for Kobe to take responsibility for his actions. Solomonese also applauded Comissioner Sterns decision to fine Kobe and to issue the proper statement to the world for Kobe’s actions at a time when “bullying” is also at an all time high around our country, and our world.
Comissioner Stern said in a statement Wednesday:
“Kobe Bryant’s comment during last night’s game was offensive and inexcusable. While I’m fully aware that basketball is an emotional game, such a distasteful term should never be tolerated. Accordingly, I have fined Kobe $100,000. Kobe and everyone associated with the NBA know that insensitive or derogatory comments are not acceptable and have no place in our game or society.”
$100K is a drop in the bucket for Kobe, so while this may be harmful towards his image for now, if he really wanted to punish him, he should’ve done something like a 3 week suspension without pay, especially now while teams are still fighting for their playoff standings.
But guess what, I’m from LA so I probably wouldn’t want that !
What I’ve never understood, is how much profanity occurs on an NBA court during any given game. You would think they would all know by now that there’s damn near 40 video cameras floatin’ around these stadiums at all times, and peeps with microphones and everything. Come on now, you know you hear it on tv all the time, when they’re playin and yell out things like “shi!t!” or “m@ther#ucker”. And we always laugh.
Somebody aint laughin no more
