A police officer shot a teen who opened fire in St. Louis Wednesday. St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said that the officer shot his weapon 17 times after “at least three” shots were fired at him. Right now it is not clear how many times the 18 year old suspect was hit. The officer that shot the 18 year old was off duty and a six year veteran of the St. Louis Police Department. The officer was not shot or hurt and an investigation will decide if the officer was justified with his behavior. Ferguson is about 16 miles from where this incident happened.
Teams that are responsible for burying bodies of deceased Ebola patients in Africa are on strike. Sources say teams in two districts of Sierra Leone have gone on strike because they have not been paid their weekly risk allowance. The specialized teams are required to handle corpses due to the virus still being active in victims after they have died. The teams are said to not have been paid their weekly salary of $100 in two weeks. Health worker Tamba Nyandemoh says they bury 17-35 bodies a day. Last week there were 121 recorded deaths and new infections in a single day.

Ja Rule says men wearing shirt- skirts is part of Hip Hop now! I know you have seen the fashion changing or repeating itself all the time, but lately in Hip Hop men have taken things a new route and embrace some sort of “feminization.” With male rappers wearing kilt skirts, painting their nails, using new words, and wearing shirt-skirts from a distance you might think something off the wall. Ja Rule addresses this topic and says “You know what? If You wanna shirt-skirt, go head get you a shirt skirt. Cause this is your generation.” Ja Rule says he does look back at some of his old pictures and wonder what the hell he was wearing then but he says it is apart of being young and growing up. Ja also adds that he doesn’t think this generation is looking at it as “feminine” but more so “fashionable.” Honey I’m all for fashion and please believe I am all for anybody expressing themselves through clothing, but grown men just should not be painting their nails anything but clear. I’m not even sure I’m okay with clear. LOL!
