Meek Mill finally granted bail

meek-mill-photo-1.jpgAfter being incarcerated since November 2017 for violating his probation, the Supreme Court has granted Meek Mill bail.

In a statement to Billboard, Meek said the following: "I'd like to thank God, my family, my friends, my attorneys, my team at Roc Nation including JAY-Z, Desiree Perez, my good friend Michael Rubin, my fans, The Pennsylvania Supreme Court and all my public advocates for their love, support and encouragement during this difficult time," began Meek.

"While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive. To the Philadelphia District Attorney's office, I'm grateful for your commitment to justice -- not only for my case, but for others that have been wrongfully jailed due to police misconduct," he continued.

"Although I'm blessed to have the resources to fight this unjust situation, I understand that many people of color across the country don't have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues. In the meantime, I plan to work closely with my legal team to overturn this unwarranted conviction and look forward to reuniting with my family and resuming my music career."

Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin posted a picture on Instagram celebrating Meek's release from prison. "@meekmill is FREE!!! Just left visiting Meek with @kevinhart4real and I'm on the way back to pick him up as we speak! #MeekisFree #GoSixers," he wrote.

Last week, Meek Mill told CNN's Don Lemon that he was optimistic that he was going to get out of jail sooner than later. "I don't really try to get my hopes up from that court room right there," Meek said. "I feel like I will be free one day. I think I'll be able to get my chance pretty soon. My time coming."


Lawyers for Wisynco Group, makers of the CranWata beverage, are reportedly heading to court to ask a judge to temporarily halt a public education campaign being run by the Heart Foundation of Jamaica to warn Jamaicans about the harmful health effects of excessive sugar intake.

The campaign, 'Are You Drinking Yourself Sick' has been airing on local television and various social media platforms.

A report in daily newspaper, The Gleaners, says that Wisynco contends in court documents that on March 1 this year, as part of the campaign, the Heart Foundation published false and defamatory information about CranWata on the social media platform Instagram.

As a result, the St Catherine-based company has filed legal action in the Supreme Court seeking a declaration that the information published was defamatory.

It also wants an injunction that would halt further publication.

According to Wisynco, the Instagram post makes an inaccurate claim about the volume of sugar in each bottle of CranWata then asks: "Are you drinking yourself sick? Drink water instead."

The post has since been removed.

The company sought to explain that because the aim of the campaign is to get members of the public to consume less sugar-sweetened beverages, the "false" information is defamatory because it suggests that drinking Wisynco's products, specifically CranWata, will make them sick.

kimberly-risden.jpgThe education ministry has issued a statement that the loss of child development officer Kimberly Risden, who died in motor vehicle accident last Friday, will deal a blow to the Child Protection and Family Services Agency.

Risden, 30, worked at the Summerfield Girl's Home in Clarendon.

It is reported that her motor vehicle was found overturned in bushes in the parish.

The education minister said Risden was dedicated to public service and his thoughts and prayers are with her family especially her partner and two children.

Pointing to the tributes and outpouring of love and sympathy from friends and colleagues on social media, he said it is obvious that her life and work touched many in a positive way.

According to Reid, those who knew Risden well spoke highly of her diligence and commitment to her career, her genuine love for children, admirable traits which he says are crucial in the execution of her specific duties in public service.

He said the entire ministry extends its condolences and stands ready to provide the necessary support through counselling to her family and colleagues.

The Garvey Maceo High School in Clarendon had to be dismissed early Tuesday as approximately 50 members of staff and students were rushed to hospital following smoke from a nearby old sugar estate.

Principal Erica Eubanks said most of the affected students had asthma problems.

She said other students were experiencing a burning sensation in their eyes.

The fire started shortly before 10 o'clock in the morning and quickly spreading to within 100 metres of the school forcing dismissal at 11 o'clock.

Eubanks has praised fire fighters from the May Pen Fire Station and the police whom she said responded promptly.

yanique.jpgAttention-seeking media personality turned Dancehall artiste, Yanique 'Curvy Diva' Barrett uploaded to social media a video of herself urinating in bushes during a recent jogging sessio and people are just not having it.

The video, which was being filmed by her friend shows the Curvy Diva going behind a wall, pulling down her tights and seemingly urinating in the bush, and then using a piece of tissue to clean up after. She later ran back into the road while pulling up her tights.

"Mi a p!$$ pon mi shoes," she said between laughter as her jogging partner informs her that someone was approaching.

However, social media thinks what she did was just plain disgusting and shows someone who is desperate for attention.

"People nowadays do things for likes. Yanique never have to post this,"one user commented and this seems to be the sentiments of the overwhelming majority of persons.

"Although everyone urinates in the bushes at least once, we really don't want to see a video of you Yanique p..sing inna bush," another user stated.

The Curvy Diva, however, laughed at the comments, stating it was pure fun, and that she was not urinating. She said that this will be highlighted in her upcoming reality series.

"Ask them if them see the wee coming out of my vagina. Mi sup'm woulda shame, so me couldn't pee in the bushes. I wasn't peeing, and people will eventually see that when my reality series is released," she said.

She, however, stated that her Instagram followers grew drastically after the video was posted yesterday.

"Me normally have like a thousand or so followers in a day, but within an hour I had 1,000. It's ridiculous," she said, before erupting into a fit of laughter.

More scrutiny for travellers to the US

No Comments

(AFP) - Travellers through US airports will face more intense security inspections this summer, including being asked to take food items out of their bags before they are X-rayed.

The Transportation Security Administration announced Thursday materials that could make it hard to read the X-rays of bags will have to be removed from carry-on luggage, similar to existing requirements for computers and other large electronics.

Security officials say extremist organisations like the Islamic State group continue to seek ways to attack civilian airlines.

TSA is undertaking the move to stay ahead of the evolving threat, said TSA Administrator David Pekoske.

"In addition to screening personal electronic devices separately, including laptops, tablets, e-readers and handheld game consoles, TSA officers may instruct travellers to separate other items from carry-on bags such as foods, powders, and any materials that can clutter bags and obstruct clear images on the X-ray machine," they said.

"Travellers are encouraged to organise their carry-on bags and keep them uncluttered to ease the screening process and keep the lines moving."

TSA said the new procedures are already being implemented and said it might increase the wait in airport screening lines.
