I'm Not Joking! I Can Give Rita Dominic a Set of Twins...I'm in Love with Her... LKT

Here is what he said to Punch;

“I’ve been dating Rita in my dreams and I’ve always loved to see her movies. When I read her interview, something in me said I should voice out my admiration and affections for her. “If truly her heart desire is to have a set of twins, I can give her that. I have got twins in my genes. It might sound awkward or a joke, but I’m not kidding; nor am I looking for cheap publicity. “I would have approached her a long time ago, but I thought she was already taken by another man. Even if it turns out that she is older than me, I can live with it.  Age is nothing but a number,” he says.

Lol. Rita recently granted an interview where she said she would love to have twins after settling down. LKT sang the famous yahoozee chorus and recently did a song with P Square titled follow follow.

Jane Fonda & Ciara square off in Emilio Pucci!

Despite an age difference of almost 50 years - singer Ciara and actress Jane Fonda share a similar taste for fashion. The celebrities were both spotted rocking a very daring Emilio Pucci gown at recent red carpet events. I have to give this one to Jane Fonda. She's 74 and killin it! She looks amazing! What do you think, who wore it best between the two!?

Suporter Malaysia Menghina Indonesia AN***G

Suporter Malaysia Menghina Indonesia AN***G ZC-SECRET Akan mengulas 
Suporter Malaysia Menghina Indonesia AN***G.  - Anggota Komisi I yang juga membidangi masalah luar negeri Tantowi Yahya meminta rakyat Indonesia untuk tidak terprovokasi beredarnya video suporter Malaysia yang menghina Indonesia.
“Kita jangan cepat terprovokasi. Kebenaran video itu perlu dikaji dan konfirmasi dari penonton lain yang ada di stadion,” kata Tantowi Yahya, Jumat 30 November 2012.
Tantowi meragukan bahwa yang berada di dalam video itu adalah suporter dari Malaysia. Alasannya, kata Tantowi, antara gerak bibir penonton dengan kalimat yang diucapkan tidak begitu sinkron.
“Artinya, bisa saja video aslinya sudah diganti oleh pihak-pihak yang menginginkan kita dan Malaysia tegang terus,” kata politisi Golkar ini. Kemudian, lanjut Tantowi, ekspresi suporter yang meneriakkan kata-kata kasar itu tidak marah dan malah tersenyum bangga.
Selain itu, jika suporter Malaysia benar mengatakan hal itu, maka seharusnya Asosiasi Sepakbola Malaysia mendapatkan sanksi berat dari Federasi Sepakbola Asia atau AFT. “Jadi kesimpulannya, bisa saja suporter Malaysia itu mengucapkan “Malaysia is the best” atau apalah,” kata dia.
Sebelumnya, Menteri Negara Pemuda dan Olahraga Andi Malarangeng sudah mendapat laporan beredarnya video ejekan suporter Malaysia kepada Indonesia saat tim Malaysia ditekuk Singapura 0-3 di Stadion Bukit Djalil, pada 25 November lalu.
“Baru dapat laporan. Tentu saja ada ketentuan FIFA yang mengatur etika sebagai suporter tidak boleh menghina, kata-kata rasis atau melecehkan segala macam,” kata Andi Malarangeng usai acara pengarahan Presiden SBY di Hotel Grand Sahid Jaya, Jakarta, Jumat, 30 November 2012.
Video ini beredar jelang pertandingan Grup B piala AFF antara Malaysia melawan Indonesia Sabtu 1 Desember 2012 di Stadion Bukit Djalil, Kuala Lumpur. Indonesia saat ini berada di puncak klasemen, sedangkan Malaysia berada di posisi 3.

Gan gimana menurut agan….??? pantas gak ?

Hit or Miss: Kim Kardashian's white cut out dress in Kuwait

Out of the places in the world she could be, I just never thought Kim K would ever make it to Kuwait! Given her recent support of Israel, her rise to fame and clash in values..I assumed that the people in Kuwait wouldn't be too welcoming. Well I was I wrong! The 32 year-old reality star was spotted (getting lots of love too) at the Millions Of Milkshakes store at the Avenuees Mall in Kuwait City on Thursday. I'm on the fence about the cut out dress. I like the idea but there is something about the look that ain't quite right. Hmm is this a hit or miss for you!?

Lady Gaga goes on safari in South Africa!

Lady Gaga is currently onstage right now at Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg. Mother Monster has the distinct honor of being the first woman to perform at Soccer City and SELL THAT STADIUM OUT. There are about 100,000+ fans rocking out to her music as I type this. Dang I wish I was there, I can feel the energy coming through from the fan tweets in SA!

Prior to kicking off the show tonight Gaga went on safari and took a few pics. She tweeted "I'm about 10 feet from 13 lions, 2 cubs. I spent about 30 minutes w them and took a nap"
It's so typical of stars to go on safari while in Africa, while that's cool - I also would like for the singer to
showcase the impossibly cool city life in Jozi. Wouldn't that be awesome? Africa is more than just a safari!


Accolades As Amstel Malta/ Williams Sisters Tour Ends in Grand Style

The recent Amstel Malta sponsored tour of world acclaimed tennis superstars Serena and Venus Williams, to Lagos, Nigeria, came to a much anticipated climax when the two sisters squared off in an exhibition match at the Lagos Lawn Tennis Club, Onikan. The two sisters, who have a combined total of 22 grand slam titles, gave spectators an entertaining display on why they are world tennis champions. The exciting match up ended in favour of Venus Williams who defeated Serena in two straight sets 6-4, 7-5.

The four-day tour of the Williams sisters, in company of their mother, Mrs. Oracene Price tagged “Breaking The Mould” in consonance with the Amstel Malta, a premium malt brand from the stable of Nigerian Breweries plc, was aimed at mentoring and supporting youths, especially young adults with their stories that they can be the best they choose to be. As part of activities for the historic visit, a tennis clinic was staged at the Ikoyi Club 1938 where young players were trained by the sisters on the fundamentals of the game. One of the highlights at the clinic was the performance of a young player who battled with Venus as she lost no serve to Venus William, proving herself to be the best that she can be amongst her age grade.
The visit continued on the second day, with the Williams Sisters hosted to a Gala night. The Gala night was organized to appreciate the sisters and other “mould breakers” in the country. Mr. Nicholaas Vervelde; Managing Director Nigerian Breweries plc presented a gift to Nike Okundaye of the Nikky Art Gallery for her consistency in being a mould breaker in the country.

Also, the Marketing Director of Nigerian Breweries; Walter Drenth, at a press briefing appreciated the sisters’ visit with a gift and described the sponsorship and partnership as an opportunity to emphasise the brand’s commitment to consumers for “being the best you can be” at all times.
“Amstel Malta’s partnership with the BTM/Williams sisters’ Tour” he stated,  “is one that the brand is particularly proud of as it showcases a synergy between what the brand stands for, that is, “being the best that you can be” and, the greatest sisters in tennis history individually and together – Venus and Serena Williams. Amstel Malta is the No.1 premium low sugar malt drink with a rich Amstel international heritage that is filled with refreshment and energy for that youthful person who lives an active lifestyle and needs to replenish lost energy so that he or she can be their best at all times”.

Makho Chats with Miss Universe!

Just last week I had the chance to chat with the MOST beautiful woman in the world - Miss Universe! It was the day before Thanksgiving but I had no issues with trekking up to the pageant headquarters in NYC for one last chat with her before she gives up her title. Leila and I talked about EVERYTHING Hunty, from who she's dating to plans after her reign to even what kind of music she listens to her on Ipod - it was good stuff! I really enjoyed kicking it with the Angolan born beauty queen- it was more like a girlfriend catch up session than an interview. Check out the video and let me know what you think!

Bianca Takes The Lion Share of Ojukwu’s Estate

The will of the late Ikemba Nnewi, Chief Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, was on Friday presented to the family with his widow, Bianca, getting the lion’s share.

The presentation by the Chief Registrar of the Enugu High Court, Mr Dennis Ekoh, was witnessed by Bianca, Mr Val Nwosu, Ojukwu’s first cousin, and Mr Mike Ejemba.

In the will, the late Ojukwu identified one Tenny Haman as one of his children.
Ojukwu listed the children as Tenny Haman, Chukwuemeka Jnr, Mmegha, Okigbo, Ebele, Chineme, Afam and Nwachukwu.

The Ikemba gave the Casabianca Lodge at 7 Forest Crescent, GRA, Enugu, two property at Jabi and Kuje in the FCT as well as all his money and personal effects to his widow.

He also said that Bianca should replace him as the trustee in the family company, Ojukwu Transport Ltd, while also giving her two plots of land in his village at Nnewi. He, however, added that if she re-married, the land should be taken away from her.

The first son, Emeka Jnr., got the family house at Nnewi, while the newly mentioned daughter, Tenny Haman, got the Jubilee Hotel located in Zaria, Kaduna State.

The Biafran warlord also shared other landed property in the village among all his children.

Ojukwu listed the trustees and executors of the will to include Bianca, Emeka Jnr and Mr James Chukwuneme.

Reacting to the will, Bianca, who is Nigeria’s Ambassador to Spain, expressed satisfaction with its contents.

“It was a fair will. This time round, he did not disappoint us,’’ she said.

The ambassador, however, expressed shock at the disclosure of a new daughter in the family, whom she said had never been mentioned by her husband.

None of Ojukwu’s children was present at the presentation of the will.

A man who claims to be Ojukwu’s first son has already filed a legal action in a Lagos court on the will.

Chief Debe Odumegwu Ojukwu who claimed to be the eldest child of the late Ojukwu had slammed a N100 million suit on his father’s widow, Bianca and six others, accusing them of preventing him from managing his estate.

In the suit filed before a Federal High court in Lagos, Chief Debe alleged that the defendants prevented him from performing the dust to dust rites during the burial of his father and also prevented him from managing his estate.

Also joined in the legal battle are Ojukwu Transport Limited, Professor Joseph O. Ojukwu, Engineer Emmanuel N. Ojukwu, Mr. Lotanna Ojukwu, Emeka Ojukwu, Mr. Patrick Ojukwu, Mrs. Margret Mogbo, Nee Ojukwu, the Inspector-General of Police and Mr. Ibrahim Mukhtar, former Commissioner of Police Anambra State, now an Assistant Inspector-General of Police.

I Shaved My Hair for a Good Cause - Halima Abubakar

"I was invited to participate in cancer awareness campaign by Waodiva and MTN. They did workshops on cancer, and a lot of survivors attended. I cried when I saw them. It was really shocking that people can go through that traumatic experience. I now decided to take off my hair as a way of honoring them. If you shave your hair, you understand better what it is.

If you have someone that has gone through the ailment, you will understand what I am talking about. They normally cut their hair. Who doesn't want hair? Hair is every woman's glory. Shaving my hair is my own way of supporting the call against the dreaded disease.

Some people keep asking why ı had to do that, ıf you really know me,then u wıll know this lane ı take serıously. Be ıt a movıe or personal lıfe..please remember notıng ıs too small or too much.

I wıll be releasing more ınformations, pictures and vıdeos for  the work ı do that people dont know about because ı love my peace..hehe ok. Am done.....oya ı blow u all kısses and remember to share the sıde of

Nexus 4 back in stock soon, sales set to resume

Google appears to have a better handle on Nexus 4 supplies now, and will resume selling the unlocked Android smartphone at noon Pacific time today.
Android Central reports that Google has sent out e-mails about Nexus 4 availability. The LG-made smartphone, which costs $300 for an 8 GB model or $350 for a 16 GB model, went on sale November 13, but sold out of its initial stock within minutes.
Meanwhile, T-Mobile's version of the Nexus 4, which costs $200 with a two-year contract, is back on sale right now.
For people who managed to order the Nexus 4 on launch day, Google has been shipping the units in waves. On Monday, Google sent e-mailsto some customers, telling them that shipments will resume this week.
So far, it has been a rocky launch for all of Google's new Nexus devices. The Nexus 10 tablet originally sold out within a few days of launch, as did the 3G version of the Nexus 7 tablet. Both tablets are now available for purchase again, but the 32 GB Nexus 10 has a one- to two-week shipping delay.
Google hasn't disclosed sales figures for any of its devices, so it's unclear whether the company was simply overwhelmed by demand, or had other supply issues. However, Asus has said that the Nexus 7, which went on sale in July, is approaching 1 million sales per month, and the quick sell-out of other devices at least bodes well for Google. Although Google has struggled to sell Nexus devices online in the past, perhaps the idea of pure Android hardware, sold at competitive prices, is starting to catch on.


Sean Taylor, five years later: Remembering a player that was more like a kid you knew from the ’hood

When the Redskins drafted Sean Taylor on April 24, 2004, I screamed. I was in college, watching the draft and couldn’t have been more excited. Until that point, I hadn’t yelled like that for a single Redskins’ moment since going to RFK Stadium with my father as a kid.
Taylor was most exciting defensive football player I'd ever seen in my life. In an era when hard hits
Police say Sean Taylor, a Washington Redskins Pro Bowl safety, was shot in the groin after surprising a group of intruders in his Miami area home on Nov. 26, 2007. He died a day later. (John McDonnell - The Washington Post)
were not considered the grisly acts they are today, he excelled in lighting guys up.
But when he was killed five years ago, a part of my love for the team went with him. It wasn’t solely because of his athletic ability: Taylor was a player that many people, particularly young black men, could relate to well. He was familiar; that kid from your ’hood that made it.
Of course, he wasn’t without 'baggage,” as many liked to put it. Some thought he was too aggressive, too brash and not mature enough.In his second year, he was fined for wearing the wrong socks and spitting on a guy during a game.
Before that, he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence while returning from a birthday party. Later, he was labeled a person of interest in an incident involving guns and stolen sport-utility vehicles in Florida.
Because of this off-field troubles, he might not have lasted long in the league if he hadn’t been a great player. But he made it past them and became the family man he'd always wanted to be. Indeed, Taylor was the guy that you could root for even when he might not deserve it. 
Although not many of us are blessed with world-class athletic ability, loss of someone at such a young age are something that too many of us are forced to deal with. Be it murder, incarceration or drug use, the reason Sean's story hit home so hard around here is because it was all too familiar.
Brutally unfair violent deaths are still just another part of life for black people, especially men.
Taylor was only 2 years younger than I was when he died. I think every man that's grown up in a place where random and not-so-random violence is a regular threat has been forced to deal with their own mortality in a jarring way.
In a world full of inequalities, violent loss of life is always top of mind for black men. You're taught from early age that if you do the so-called right thing, you can make it past the pitfalls that doom so many low-income communities across America. For some people, it's the only hope they have.
So I don't ask “why?” when it comes to Sean Taylor. I never asked why my older cousin was gunned down when I was a child. And as gross as it sounds, I rarely ask why when I read of the dozens of slayings that occur in this city on a regular basis, regardless of race. The reason is because quite frankly, the why doesn’t matter.
And after that fateful day, a memorial to him that went up at the Brookland Metro station that has still never been buffed — an incredible show of respect. While a lot of outsiders called Taylor a thug, a loose cannon and a criminal, we loved him.
And his death was another grim reminder that no matter how far black boys and men get in life, no matter how many people like you, it can end in a violent second for too, too many. Ask any brother under 35 who their favorite Redskins player is. I'll bet you lunch that a majority of them will tell you it's #21. Why? Because in a sense, he was all of us.


Disney Channel confirms development of ‘Boy Meets World’ spin-off, ‘Girl Meets World’

Looks like another network is ready to tap into 90s nostalgia for ratings — after weeks of rumors, Disney Channel confirmed that the network is developing a pilot called “Girl Meets World,” a spin-off of ABC’s popular sitcom that aired from 1993 through 2000.
Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel are set to reprise their roles as Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence, the central couple of the show for all seven seasons. Now, they have a 13-year-old daughter named Riley — casting is currently underway for the role.
A Disney rep noted that the show is still in the “development” phase, and that the pilot will be produced by Michael Jacobs, also the exec producer behind “Boy Meets World,” along with “Charles in Charge” and “My Two Dads.”
No word on whether any of the other actors from the series will return, though given many mostly dropped off the map after the show wrapped up, we have a feeling there will be no shortage of guest spots.
Perhaps already anticipating rabid viewer disappointment if the new show isn’t the same beloved one they remember from years ago, Fishel has already taken to her Tumblr page to manage expectations for the show.
“‘GMW’ is a new show.  It isn’t BMW brought back to life but in current day...please keep in mind that this there will be episode 1, of season 1, of a brand new show,” Fishel explained. “For those of you who knew and loved BMW, please allow this show to evolve as well.  Stick with us. Give us a chance.”


Angus T. Jones addresses 'Two and a Half Men' rant

Angus T. Jones addresses his "Two and a Half Men" outburst

Rather than launch a follow-up to Charlie Sheen's "Violent Torpedo of Truth" live tour, "Two and a Half Men" star Angus T. Jones is partially apologizing for his recent comments against the successful CBS sitcom.
The 19-year-old actor made headlines Monday after appearing in a testimonial posted by the Forerunner Christian Church, in which he labeled the CBS ratings juggernaut "filth" and urged viewers not to watch the show -- in addition to noting his desire to no longer be part of the series.
Former costar Sheen couldn't resist weighing in on the kerfuffle either, saying the show is "cursed" -- you'll recall the 47-year-old actor's meltdown last year that ultimately led to his departure from the show.
By Tuesday evening, Jones finally addressed the video rant. He's apologetic to those involved with the show, but doesn't necessarily backtrack his position on the show's content. Here's his statement in full:
I have been the subject of much discussion, speculation and commentary over the past 24 hours. While I cannot address everything that has been said or right every misstatement or misunderstanding, there is one thing I want to make clear.
Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two and Half Men with whom I have worked and over the past ten years who have become an extension of my family.
Chuck Lorre, Peter Roth and many others at Warner Bros. and CBS are responsible for what has been one of the most significant experiences in my life to date. I thank them for the opportunity they have given and continue to give me and the help and guidance I have and expect to continue to receive from them.
 I also want all of the crew and cast on our show to know how much I personally care for them and appreciate their support, guidance and love over the years. I grew up around them and know that the time they spent with me was in many instances more than with their own families. I learned life lessons from so many of them and will never forget how much positive impact they have had on my life.
I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed. I never intended that.
A CBS representative said the network had no comment regarding Jones' statement.


Eagles rookie grades for Monday Night Football loss to Panthers

Peering out at the Eagles offensive huddle in the second half on Monday night it felt like the third team at the start of training camp trying to make their mark in a real NFL game. With the exception of Jeremy Maclin, Evan Mathis and Brent Celek, it was a bunch of rookies and relative unknowns auditioning for a spot on the 2013 roster.

Five rookies were playing significant roles on the Eagles offense. Three rookies were contributing on defense. It was an open tryout on national television against the Carolina Panthers.
So how did the rookie class do in the 30-22 loss, the Eagles' seventh straight in a debacle of a season? Here's a player-by-player rookie breakdown:
DE Vinny Curry - The fans clamored for the second-round pick to see the field. He finally did Monday night for the first time in his career, and received plenty of playing time. Curry made a significant impact, even though he missed his first career sack when Cam Newton slipped through his finger tips in the second half. Still, Curry was active against the run and showed power as a pass rusher. Several times he bull-rushed left tackle Jordan Gross deep into the backfield. He impressed Gross so much that the All-Pro tackle approached him after the game and told him he gave him fits. Curry finished with five tackles and spent plenty of time in the backfield. The Marshall product also felt he made a point with his play.
"It was what I expected. Guys are good, but I'm here for a reason," Curry said. "My goal was to go out there and prove we didn't draft no slouch. I know a lot of people were wondering where I was. I just wanted to leave a mark on the game. I think I did all right."
Grade: A- RB Bryce Brown - There was the good (178 yards and two rushing touchdowns) and the bad (two fumbles). Regardless, Brown left an impression. The seventh-round pick's size, speed and cutting ability left hope that the Eagles have two stud running backs for at least the next few seasons. He also made a dent in the Eagles record book with the most yards in a game by a rookie running back in team history. Overall, he impressed himself and just about everybody else.
"I thought I ran well," Brown said. "I ran tough, I ran hard. It's the little things though. You have to take care of the ball."
Grade: B QB Nick Foles - The third-round pick wasn't overly impressive in his second career start. Foles finished 16-of-21 passing for 119 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. Of his five incompletions, however, three were poor throws that were almost intercepted in the first half. To his credit, the one deep shot he took downfield resulted in a 51-yard pass interference call. That didn't count in his final statistics. The bottom line: Foles didn't flash much that left anyone 100% confident he's the Eagles' quarterback of the future. He was average in every facet of the game.
"I felt like I improved on certain things," Foles said. "Still a lot to improve on."
Grade: C- WR/PR Damaris Johnson - The undrafted free agent had the best game of his rookie season. Playing more on offense when DeSean Jackson left the game in the first half with an injury, Johnson caught both passes thrown in his direction for 13 yards. He was elusive and dangerous on punt returns as well, with two returns for 32 yards, showing the shiftiness and speed that made him lethal as a returner in college.
Grade: A-
OT Dennis Kelly - The fifth-round pick out of Purdue drew a difficult assignment against Carolina's best pass rusher Charles Johnson. And while Kelly struggled at times stopping Johnson against the pass, he provided solid run blocking throughout the game. He made an excellent seal block on Brown's 65-yard touchdown run in the first half and was able to reach the second level consistently as the Eagles rushed for a season-best 204 yards.
Grade: B
CB/KR Brandon Boykin - The Eagles third-round pick was pretty good as the slot cornerback. He wasn't so good as the re-installed kickoff returner. After losing the job several weeks back to Brown, Boykin re-claimed the position by default with Brown starting at running back. His return didn't go well. Boykin didn't reach the 20-yard line on any of his returns except one, which he fumbled away after a 44-yard scamper. On defense, he wasn't very active — failing to make a single tackle in 30 or so snaps — but also wasn't beaten badly. He did knock down a pass to Brandon LaFell in the red zone in the first half.
Grade: C-
LB Mychal Kendricks - The outside linebacker's effort mirrored his rookie season, mixed with some success and struggles. Kendricks again failed to make any impact plays and was flagged for a key holding late in the fourth quarter. He did, however, do a nice job covering speedy wide receiver Steve Smith across the middle in the red zone on another fourth-quarter play. Overall, it was a decent performance.
Grade: C+

DT Fletcher Cox -
The Eagles top draft pick didn't last long in this one. Cox (lower back/tailbone) was injured in the first quarter and did not return.
Grade: Incomplete


Express Slows Down

J.P. Morgan cut estimates on the apparel retailer.

By J.P. Morgan ($12.88, Nov. 26, 2012)
We are adjusting our fourth-quarter estimate as we believe Express likely saw an improving comp trend over the Black Friday weekend driven by deeper promotions.
We believe that this year's 50% off promo likely grabbed customer interest, helping to support comps. However, as compared to last year's offering, we expect this will likely come at the expense of the company's gross margin. At the current valuation (nine times fiscal 2013 earnings-per-share estimate), we believe investors would likely applaud any sign of improving sales, but we remain Neutral at present as we believe it will be essential to monitor the cost of doing business when determining Express' (ticker: EXPR) margin profile going forward. Express is set to report third-quarter EPS on Nov. 28 before the market opens.
The cost of doing business -- the recent share run could see a pause if a sustainable turn has yet to materialize. Based on our channel checks, Express appears to have successfully driven traffic amid, what appears to have been, a generally flat/weaker softline Black Friday showing. We believe the company drove among the strongest absolute traffic and conversion across peers (we do recognize that Express enjoyed "a record Black Friday sales day" last year); however, Express appears to have gone deeper with their promotion (e.g. beginning with a 50% off versus 40% last year) which we believe will likely come at the expense of gross margin; we are projecting an about 280 basis-point decline in the fourth quarter.
Online clearance levels suggest strong sell-through. Based on our analysis, Express has seen its online promotional stock-keeping unit (SKU) count decrease meaningfully sequentially, in what appears to be a successful sellthrough of the marked-down product. By our math, the promotional SKU count is down roughly 65% compared to the beginning of quarter levels, with the vast majority driven over the past holiday weekend.
Since the company's Oct. 2 update, fiscal 2012 EPS consensus has dropped more than 30 cents to about $1.41. However, we are concerned that fiscal 2013 numbers still remain elevated and we expect to see ongoing estimate revisions downward. We are projecting fiscal 2013 EPS of $1.40 versus the Street at $1.57.
We are tweaking our fourth-quarter comp estimate slightly to negative 1.5% from the prior negative 3% and we are lowering our gross-margin estimate as we believe Express may have seen an uptick in top-line trends at the expense of margin. We are lowering our fiscal 2012/2013 estimates to $1.40/$1.40, respectively, from $1.48/$1.46, respectively. We are maintaining our December 2013 price target of $14 based on nine to 10 times our fiscal 2013 EPS estimate. We believe Express will continue to trade at a discount-to-peers in the near term as uncertainty remains and in light of the first quarterly negative store-level comp and earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) margin contraction keep investors focused on execution risk.

Kindle Fire HD & Other eReaders Have Biggest Day Ever for Cyber Monday 2012 at Amazon

The new Kindle Fire HD along with other eReaders and Kindle tablets had their biggest day ever at the Amazon website on Cyber Monday 2012. That's the latest from the online retailer who recently brought out a press release with the big news. However, the company has not given any solid sales figures or earnings amounts to indicate the true magnitude of the event.

Product DetailsPart of the big sales day was a Kindle Fire tablet sale on Monday. With the non-HD tablet down to just $129 from a normal price of $159, it's likely more than a couple of those sold on the site. Other customers may have opted to spend just $70 more on a HD version, or a bit more on the larger tablets, including one that features 4G LTE. No matter which were bought, the Kindle tablets and eReaders dominate electronics sales at Amazon.

A press release from the company today notes that their Kindle Fires and eReaders have held the top 4 spots on Amazon's worldwide bestsellers list since launch. Additionally, the Kindle Fire HD (pictured) remains the "most gifted and most wished for product on Amazon worldwide since launch."

Amazon Kindle VP Dave Limp said of the sales success:

"Kindle e-readers and Kindle Fires have held the top 4 spots on the Amazon worldwide best sellers list since launch, and that was before the busiest shopping weekend of the year. We're excited that customers made this Black Friday and Cyber Monday the best ever for Kindle worldwide—Cyber Monday was the biggest day ever for Kindle sales, and we're looking forward to millions of customers opening a new Kindle this holiday season."

Limp and his associates love not just the sales success of the devices themselves, but the concept that now the real earnings begin as new customers get the devices. There will be plenty spent on content for those Kindles and Kindle Fires. That includes music, movies, ebooks, apps, games and more through the device, which is a flashy portal to help customers shop on Amazon from the handheld device. What will be interesting is to hear what percentage of tablet marketshare Amazon has achieved with this "massive success," and if they are any closer to toppling Apple in the competition.

Do you currently own a Kindle Fire tablet or Kindle eReader, or do you own a different device? Did you buy a tablet during Black Friday or Cyber Monday?


The 411 On Jenny Johnson, The Woman That Shut Down Breezy's Twitter Account!

Ever since Jenny Johnson and Chris Brown’s Twitter beef put the “Look At Me Now” singer back in the headlines for his uncontrollable temperament and provoked him to delete his account, everyone's been wondering ... Just who is Jenny Johnson?

Jenny (@JennyJohnsonHi5) is a self-described “writer, wife, asshole and owner of 2 dogs.”  Based out of Houston, the former news producer and current comedy writer told Paper Mag that she was working on a book of essays and a TV pilot back in May 2012.

Under her belt, she's credited for co-producing ABC’s hit series Lost and executively producing the Fox TV series Alcatraz. In addition, she's been published in GQ Magazine.

She’s been on Twitter since 2009, but began to make a name for herself by using her wit to make fun of high-profile celebrities like Kim K. and, of course, Chris Brown. Her cunning quips helped her build her Twitter following to around 200,000, which grew into over 347,000 followers after she took a personal Twitter bashing from Breezy. It’s also helped her gain notoriety as one of the funniest women on Twitter, according to both the HuffPo and Paper Mag.

In 2011, Jenny indirectly grabbed the attention of the "Don't Wake Me Up" singer through one of her hard hitting attacks tweeting:

Olivier Martinez fitted with hand brace

Valerie Macon/Getty Images
Halle Berry’s fiance Olivier Martinez has been fitted with a hand brace after injuring himself in a Thanksgiving Day bust-up with the actress’ model ex Gabriel Aubry.
The two men were hospitalised after the brawl at Berry’s Hollywood home, and Aubry subsequently obtained a restraining order against Martinez, accusing him of initiating the fight, which concerned the actress’ custody battle over the daughter she shares with her ex.
French actor Martinez was spotted leaving a Los Angeles medical center on Tuesday after seeking treatment for his right hand, which was allegedly broken in the clash. He emerged with his fingers strapped up in a brace.
His injuries appeared to be minor compared to Aubry’s – the Canadian model stepped out in Los Angeles on Friday with a black eye and cuts and bruises to his swollen face. He is also said to have suffered a broken rib.
Aubry was slapped with an emergency protective order of his own after the incident, banning him from going near Berry or their daughter Nahla, but that expires on Tuesday.
Berry is hoping to move to France with the little girl and her fiance in a bid to escape the intrusive paparazzi. Aubry is opposing the move.

Black Friday gun-draw should inspire signs

On Monday, the number of mySA readers who “liked” a particular San Antonio Express-News story, having shared it on Facebook, had climbed to about 1,500 — an unusually high figure for the website.

The article, “Shopper who pulled gun at San Antonio mall within rights, cops say,” recounts a man's decision to pull a loaded, semi-automatic handgun during a Black Friday scuffle with another man inside a crowded Sears store at South Park Mall.

Presumably, online readers “like” the Police Department's determination that Jose Alonzo Salame, a concealed handgun licensee, did not break the law by pulling the weapon. Two noteworthy folks, however, dislike the fact that Salame brandished the gun.

One is Stella Moreno, a shopper who was standing a few feet from Salame's would-be target.

Another is state Rep. George Lavender, Republican from Texarkana, who says he plans to push for an “open carry” law when the Legislature convenes in January — certainly no yellow belly, even by Texas standards.

Let's start with Moreno. At Sears to score deals for her family, she was standing at a counter when the fight broke out in a nearby line.

Salame, 33, told police he pulled the gun after Alejandro Alex, 35, punched him. A witness said Salame pointed the gun directly at Alex, although a sergeant at the scene told reporters that Salame pointed the weapon at the ground.

“No, no,” Moreno told me. “I saw the gun. I saw the barrel. I didn't see it pointed down. If he would have missed, I think I would've been shot.”

Moreno says Salame kept pointing the gun even as Alex fled in her direction, prompting her to leap to the floor in terror. Other shoppers were shrieking and fleeing as well.

“I'm already thinking the theater bit,” Moreno said, referring to the massacre in Aurora, Colo., where a gunman killed 12 people and injured 58 in a movie theater.

She added, “You can carry (guns) inside a mall? I always thought this wasn't allowed in malls.”

In fact, licensees in Texas may carry concealed handguns in malls, unless a mall posts a sign that prohibits them and cites a section of the penal code that makes doing so a class A misdemeanor.

No such signs are posted at South Park Mall.

Since the Legislature passed a law in 1995 allowing Texans to carry concealed handguns, such signs have become more and more rare, says Alice Tripp, a lobbyist for the Texas State Rifle Association. The reason: Businesses don't want to lose customers, she says.

“Malls have taken their signs down,” she said. “Car dealerships, banks have taken their signs down.”

When I suggested that the incident at South Park Mall could have led to the loss of innocent lives, Tripp became animated.

“Think about what you're saying,” she said. “I'm being pounded on, and I'm not supposed to defend myself because suddenly I'm insecure that somebody who is close enough to me to hit me, that I might miss? I don't think so. I mean, that's silly.”

Lavender, however, thinks the mall incident was worse than silly — he believes it was dangerous.

(Lavender, recall, is the legislator who wants to make it legal for Texans to openly carry handguns: “Your response time is a little quicker if you don't have to reach down into your boot,” he said.)

“I think that's a bad situation to do it in,” he told me, noting the possibility bystanders such as Moreno could get shot. “I mean, if (Salame) was in an alley somewhere and a guy starts beating him up, sure, I get it. But in the mall, I think that's a bad thing, and that's just bad judgment.”

In other words: South Park Mall, get a sign.

Chris Brown takes down Twitter account after nasty feud with comedienne Jenny Johnson

The R&B singer's comment on Twitter about his looks got a reply from comedian Jenny Johnson, who called him a 'worthless piece of (expletive).' That set the two in a war of words before Brown decided to deactivate his Twitter account Sunday night, according to reports.

Jenny Johnson has received death threats and many vulgar comments on her Twitter page after getting into a beef with Chris Brown.

R&B bad boy Chris Brown took down his Twitter account Sunday night after getting into a beef with a female comedian in a series of tasteless tweets.

The Twitter tirade, which was captured by, shows a nasty tit-for-tat with Jenny Johnson after she replied to one of Brown’s tweets about his appearance.
“I look old as (expletive)! I'm only 23…,” Brown wrote.
Chris Brown has gained a reputation for flying off the handle.

Johnson, who has more than 308,000 followers, replied: “I know! Being a worthless piece of (expletive) can really age a person.”

Her comment was retweeted more than 3,400 times.


That set off Brown, who’s gained a reputation as a hothead after beating his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 and pleading guilty in a felony assault case. The pair has apparently patched up their relationship, and reportedly spent Thanksgiving together, although Brown continues to be plagued by the domestic violence rap.

Rihanna posted a topless photo of herself on Twitter Sunday amidst the drama.

His latest Twitter feud with Johnson may only add more fuel to the fire.
In response, Brown tweeted that she was engaging in oral sex with him, and later wrote, “Thanks HO!” when she corrected him about a misspelling.

Johnson also apparently weighed in on his relationship with Rihannna.
Chris Brown pleaded guilty to assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

“I have zero respect for a person who seems unapologetic for the terrible crime he committed and shows no signs of changing,” she tweeted.
While Brown reportedly pulled his Twitter account, Johnson continued to sound off about his comments, telling her followers she’s been getting harassed by Brown’s supporters.

“It's alarming how many death threats I'm receiving via @ replies,” she wrote. “I encourage everyone, including @Twitter to look through them. Not cool.”


Town investigating officers accused of 'push-up punishment'

North Providence Police Push-Ups

This still frame from a home video shot Friday, Nov. 23, 2012, by a resident of North Providence purports to show town police officers forcing teenagers to do push-ups at the side of the road.
North Providence police have launched an investigation after officers were videotaped making several teens do push-ups at the side of the road. The teenagers were pulled over for allegedly vandalizing property.
The push-up punishment has been fodder for talk radio and the water cooler. But regardless of what the public says, North Providence's mayor and police chief said they are not happy.
They say they've worked years to clean up the town's reputation and that they are disappointed to have it tarnished by this.
"This is not a day in age where you can take the law into your own hands," Mayor Charles Lombardi said Monday.
The mayor is talking about a decision made by four North Providence police officers. Instead of arresting the five teens for alleged property vandalism, the youngsters were asked to do push-ups as punishment.
It was videotaped by a resident of Mark Street on Friday morning, and an internal investigation is now under way.
"I would support suspension, but I will also err on and respect what the chiefs feel is the right discipline for the officers," Lombardi said.
The police chief isn't weighing in on the matter just yet.
"I want to reserve my opinion until we do a fair and thorough investigation, once we examine all of the facets of this," acting Chief Paul Martellini said.
According to the police report, the incident started at 18 Springdale Ave. The owner of the home looked out and said she saw several teenagers attempting to vandalize her mailbox using a long white reflector. She called police, and the teens were pulled over several blocks away.
"And by the way, we have received a number of calls from constituents and taxpayers in town that think that police officers did the right thing," Lombardi said.
NBC 10 tried to talk to the parents of an 18-year-old suspect in the case, but no one was home.
And around town, many residents have their own opinions.
"I think the police did the right thing. They disciplined the kids. They weren't smart alecks. They admitted to their faults," said Mark Rotondi of North Providence.
"I know if it was my kid, I wouldn't want to see them go to jail for something like this, but I would want to see him reprimanded," said Michael Lepore of North Providence.
The woman whose mailbox was vandalized was not home. Police said she didn't want to press charges because the mailbox wasn't destroyed.
It's unclear how long the North Providence police internal affairs investigation will take, but the chief said because union attorneys are involved, it could be a while.


Monday Night Football: Carolina Panthers vs. Philadelphia Eagles NFL predictions previews the Panthers/Eagles matchup.

Two teams bringing up the rear in their respective divisions will meet in this week’s edition of Monday Night Football. Tonight, it’ll be the (2-8) Carolina Panthers taking on the (3-7) Philadelphia Eagles in a battle of last place teams.
Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA, will be the site for this MNF battle, which kicks off at 8:30 p.m. EST (7:30 p.m. CST) on ESPN.
According to the latest Monday Night Football odds, Cam Newton and the Panthers [+3] are listed as betting favorites by a field goal over the Michael Vick-less Eagles [+3] this evening.
In addition, NFL predictions specialists believe that Carolina and Philly will combine and score an OVER/UNDER of 42 points.
For the Panthers, despite their 2-8 record this season, they come into this game with a 4-6-0 record in against the spread wagers in 2012.
As a result, the majority of the betting population favors Newton & Co. to cover in tonight's lackluster matchup.
At the present time, 59% (1969-1352) of the betting public favors the Panthers at -3 and 53% of NFL betting experts agree. In addition to those statistics, check out some interesting ATS betting trends for Carolina:
  • Panthers are 5-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.
  • Panthers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.
  • Panthers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games.
  • Panthers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss.
  • Panthers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games on grass.
  • Panthers are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games in November.
  • Panthers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game.
For the Eagles, this team has been a complete disaster in every facet of the game thus far this season. Heading into week 12, Philly is 1-8-0 in against the spread bets, and the fact that Vick will miss his second straight start will not help the causes.
Thus, only 41% (1352-1969) of the betting public are willing to put their hard-earned money on Andy Reid's squad this evening, while 47% of betting experts echo that sentiment.
Moreover, those aren't the only numbers that would scare off any bettor looking to invest on the Eagles in tonight's game. Take a look at some of Philadelphia's most recent ATS betting trends and you'll see why:
  • Eagles are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Monday games.
  • Eagles are 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 home games.
  • Eagles are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
  • Eagles are 5-16-1 ATS in their last 22 games following a S.U. loss.
  • Eagles are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games after accumulating less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game.
  • Eagles are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games after scoring less than 15 points in their previous game.
  • Eagles are 3-13-1 ATS in their last 17 games following a ATS loss.
