Sex Education Is Poor?

Ok two headlines in the last two days about

A mother who finds out her twins have different fathers and a 13 year old-who was actually 12 years old (not much better really) finds out he isn’t a father to a 15 year old girl’s baby .

Now I am not a prude but what is f*cking going on?

Sex education in the UK is at a all-time low

We have every form of contraception in the Western Civilised world but people as young as 12 are pregnant.

In world wide cultures this can occur but it is not advised….but their are countries where they can’t even afford contraception and then this happens in countries which have a decent welfare/monetary system.

Read the latest headline-But I am not being snobby but the people who seem to be making the mistakes are the very poor and this has got to stop…they need to be educated or neuted (this is what you would do to animals!) even if it is advised on television or the welfare system doesn’t support this disgusting behaviour.

As frankly I am getting sick of this CRAP!

Little Alfie Patten, reported to have become a parent at the age of 13, did not father a baby, it has been revealed.

In February, The Sun newspaper reported the teenager believed he had made Chantelle Stedman, 15, pregnant when he was aged just 12.

A DNA test has since shown this is not the case and it can now be reported that Tyler Barker, 15, who lives on the same estate as Chantelle in Eastbourne, is in fact the father of baby Maisie, who was born on February 9.

The result can be revealed after East Sussex County Council failed in an attempt to ban reports of the case.

A judgment, made last month by Mrs Justice Eleanor King, said Chantelle had been called a “slut” by four people she did not know. The teenager said “I was crying a lot every day” and feared that the insults would “go on forever”.

Alfie was “extremely distressed” when he was told he was not the baby’s father in March, the judgment revealed. At the time the story was published, Alfie, who lives with his mother Nicola, 43, in Eastbourne, said he “thought it would be good to have a baby”.

The story renewed calls for better sex education in England, which has the highest rate of teenage pregnancies in western Europe.

A parent who gets banned from a swimming pool Breastfeeding her child-talk about double standards

Breastfeeding ‘broke no food rule’

A mother has been told to stop breastfeeding her baby boy by a swimming pool as it breached a leisure centre’s strict poolside ban on food and drink.

Laura Whotton was left fuming when a member of staff said she could not feed 11-week-old Joshua by the pool at John Carroll Leisure Centre, in Nottingham.

The 26-year-old, from Carrington, in the city, was feeding her hungry baby there so she could keep an eye on her son Thomas, four.

Nottingham City Council insisted there had been “a misunderstanding” and has promised to apologise to Ms Whotton.

It is also issuing new guidelines to its leisure centre staff.

A council spokeswoman said: “The rules are that there’s definitely no food and drink poolside, but breastfeeding is exempt from that rule. People can breastfeed anywhere.”

Ms Whotton told the Nottingham Evening Post: “When it happened, it made me feel angry.

“It could put people off going swimming and has made me not want to go to the John Carroll Leisure Centre again. But an apology would be fine.”

WHERE IS THE LOGIC

COMMENTS PLEASE-I CAN’T BE ALONE THINKING THIS IS WACK!

Mum’s Shock At Twins With Different Dads

Mum’s Shock At Twins With Different Dads

A mother of twins has had a shock after doctors revealed that her 11-month-old boys do not have the same father

Mia Washington decided to get some expert advice when she and her partner noticed that twins Justin and Jordan had different facial features.

Paternity tests then revealed what had happened – two eggs had been fertilised by two different sperm and there was a 99.99% chance the twins had different dads.

Doctors at the DNA lab in Dallas, Texas had never seen such a result.

Mia later admitted she had had an affair and got pregnant by two different men at the same time.

She told TV channel Fox 4: “Out of all people in America and of all people in the world, it had to happen to me. I’m very shocked.”

Clear Diagnostics president Genny Thibodeaux said: “It is very crazy. Most people don’t believe it can happen, but it can.”

Sky’s health correspondent Thomas Moore explains: “A woman can release two eggs from her ovaries, and the eggs will remain viable for 24 hours after ovulation.

“Sperm can survive up to five days inside a woman’s body, so a woman could sleep with different men several days apart, and get pregnant not once, but twice.”

And while it sounds rare, recent research indicates that one in 12 non-identical twins are so-called bi-paternal, with a rise in fertility treatment and changing sexual behaviour being blamed.

Mia’s partner James Harrison is father to one of the boys.

He told Fox 4 that he had forgiven his fiancee for having the affair and intended to raise both children as his own.

However, he admitted it had been tough discovering the truth.

“It’s a day by day thing. It’s going to take time to build the trust like we had,” he said.

The couple plan to tell the twins they are half-brothers when they are old enough to understand.

Wayman Tisdale 1964-2009-dies at age 44 after bout with Cancer

Posted in Basketball, Education, Health and Beauty, Living, News Media, Religion with tags , , , , , , on May 15, 2009 by Richard James Clark II

I was sad to hear this today about a former NBA player who was such a great role model to players (Blake Griffin will likely be the Number One draft pick in the 2009 NBA draft) and children in his local area and then went onto to become a successful award winning jazz musician.

Through his battle with cancer he set-up his own organisation Wayman Tisdale Foundation and with his own record company develop musicians such as Keite Young with Hidden Beach.

This is the article from Associated Press-Respect and Prayers to his family and friends

Wherever Wayman Tisdale went, whatever he was doing, chances were he was smiling.

Tisdale was a three-time All-American at Oklahoma in the mid-1980s before playing a dozen years in the NBA and later becoming an accomplished jazz musician.

But those who knew Tisdale, who died Friday at a hospital in his hometown of Tulsa, Okla., recalled not only his professional gifts but a perpetually sunny outlook, even in the face of a two-year battle with cancer that took his life at 44.

“I don’t know of any athlete at Oklahoma or any place else who was more loved by the fans who knew him than Wayman Tisdale,” said Billy Tubbs, who coached Tisdale with the Sooners. “He was obviously, a great, great player, but Wayman as a person overshadowed that. He just lit up a room and was so positive.”

Jeff Capel, the current Oklahoma coach, noted Tisdale’s “incredible gift of making the people who came in contact with him feel incredibly special.”

After three years at Oklahoma, Tisdale played in the NBA with the Indiana Pacers, Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns. The 6-foot-9 forward, with a soft left-handed touch on the court, averaged 15.3 points for his career. He was on the U.S. team that won the gold medal in the 1984 Olympics.

Gov. Brad Henry attended Oklahoma at the same time Tisdale did and later appointed him to the state’s Tourism Commission.

“Oklahoma has lost one of its most beloved sons,” Henry said. “Wayman Tisdale was a hero both on and off the basketball court. … Even in the most challenging of times, he had a smile for people, and he had the rare ability to make everyone around him smile. He was one of the most inspirational people I have ever known.”

State senators paused and prayed Friday morning after learning of his death.

Tisdale learned he had a cancerous cyst below his right knee after breaking his leg in a fall at his home in Los Angeles on Feb. 8, 2007. He said then he was fortunate to have discovered the cancer early.

“Nothing can change me,” Tisdale told The Associated Press last June. “You go through things. You don’t change because things come in your life. You get better because things come in your life.”

His leg was amputated last August and a prosthetic leg that he wore was crimson, one of Oklahoma’s colors. He attended an Oklahoma City Thunder game April 7 and later that month was honored at the Greenwood Cultural Center in Tulsa. During the ceremony, he spoke about his cancer, saying “In my mind, I’ve beaten it.”

He recently told Tulsa television station KTUL he had acute esophagitis, which prevented him from eating for about five weeks and led to significant weight loss. Among the causes of that condition are infections, medications, radiation therapy and systemic disease.

Last month, Tisdale was chosen for induction into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame.

He was the first freshman to be a first-team All-American since freshmen were allowed to play again in the 1971-72 season. He was also one of 10 three-time All-Americans. Patrick Ewing and Tisdale were the last to accomplish the feat, from 1983-85.

“On the court, he was an offensive machine that could score with the best of them,” said Dallas Mavericks president Donnie Nelson, an assistant on Tisdale’s Suns teams. “Off the court, he was grounded in faith and family.”

Tisdale played on an Olympic team that sailed to the gold medal in Los Angeles. The squad was coached by Bob Knight and featured the likes of Ewing, Michael Jordan, Sam Perkins and Chris Mullin.

“Wayman was kind of a catalyst for people accepting roles,” said C.M. Newton, the manager of the ’84 team and now chairman of the NIT selection committee. “Michael was the leader of the team but Wayman was special in that way.”

Perkins and Tisdale shared a love of music and became friends during the Olympics. Perkins later was the best man at Tisdale’s wedding.

“That’s a real friend who’s got your back and would do just about anything for you,” Perkins said. “That smile just gets you.”

As a musician, Tisdale recorded eight albums. A bass guitarist who often wrote his own material, his most recent album, “Rebound,” was inspired by his fight with cancer and included guest appearances by several artists, including saxophonist Dave Koz and country star and fellow Oklahoma native Toby Keith.

His “Way Up!” release debuted in July 2006 and spent four weeks as the No. 1 contemporary jazz album. His hits included “Ain’t No Stopping Us Now,” “Can’t Hide Love” and “Don’t Take Your Love Away.”

“He was truly an inspiration to me, paving the way for an athlete like myself to pursue a passion for writing and performing music,” said Bernie Williams, the former New York Yankees star turned jazz musician. “I had the honor and privilege of having Wayman perform on the title track of my new album, and was looking forward to collaborating with him again.”

Tisdale averaged 25.6 points and 10.1 rebounds during his three seasons with the Sooners, earning Big Eight Conference player of the year each season.

He still holds Oklahoma’s career records for points and rebounds. Tisdale also owns the school’s single-game scoring mark — 61 points against Texas-San Antonio as a sophomore — and career marks for points per game, field goals and free throws made and attempts.

In 1997, Tisdale became the first Oklahoma player in any sport to have his jersey number retired. Two years ago, then-freshman Blake Griffin asked Tisdale for permission to wear No. 23, which Tisdale granted. Griffin went on to become the consensus national player of the year this past season as a sophomore.

“I spoke with him pretty frequently this past season and he helped me in ways he probably doesn’t even know,” Griffin said.

Tisdale is survived by his wife, Regina, and four children.

I have seen madness and I have dealt with drug addicts as a drugs counselor, but this video is scary.

You don’t know whether to laugh (in disbelief) or be shocked

I felt the Police dealt with this well

So this teaches if anything people what happens with the side effects of taking hallucinogenics

Also the comments on the video footage have been added by a NF racist who had also decided to show his disgusting behaviour in other videos on youtube..

Brits4Britain should be banned off youtube so any complaints should be filed against him, as his comments are uncalled for. Plus they are very fixed and misleading!

The Most Beautiful 50 Women In The World According To DMSR

1. Monica Belucci

The reason I pick Monica Belluci as the most beautiful women in the world is for many years Monica Belluci’s beauty has been outstanding and breathtaking and as she gets older she becomes more radiant. She doesn’t seem to age? Not everybody’s ideal but nevertheless Monica’s womanly physique, and facial attributes stand her high up in most beautiful peoples lists and will continue to do so for more years to come.

2. Natalie Portman

I met Natalie Portman by accident about two years ago in a trainer/sneaker shop in Brick Lane, East London and in the flesh she is radiant and flawless, she has amazing skin and a personality that is so down to earth and normal and that self assured attitude makes her sexiness bewilder you. Someone again who has grown up in the media eye and even has a degree from Harvard. Beauty and Brains and now dates Devandra Bernhardt, who is an amazing conscious musician!

3. Rosario Dawson

A mixed race beauty that has a great aura and attributes, her confidence is incredibly alluring. Never highly regarded in many beautiful women lists or very highly regarded in Hollywood either but every film I have ever seen her in she exudes skill, intelligence, and beauty and is someone who seems to be able to adapt her look. Look at the films Rent, Alexander, Sin City and her own film Descent. Though Josie in the pussycats wasn’t her greatest film, she still is amazingly stunning in it.  She also hasn’t succumbed to plastic surgery which is rare in Hollywood!

4. Padma Lakshmi

Salman Rushdie’s ex wife, I bet he is kicking himself, another amazingly beautiful women who again is never high in lists or featuring at all, can speak up to 8 different languages, has a huge intelligence and another women I have seen in the flesh and nearly gone run over by a London cabbie, again like Natalie Portman my breath was taken away.

5. Halle Berry

Since watching the film Boomerang, and Fallen Angel, Halle Berry has lit up cinema screens. Now 40 years old Halle is even more beautiful then she has ever been and is now settling into her new life and being a mother gives her added glow (when she was pregnant and came to London for her premier she looked like a Greek goddess) after the heartache and pain of previous relationships. Another adaptable women in her beauty and her profession, i just wish she never had a nose job and kept more of her Black features.

6. Scarlett Johansson

When you think of all the Movie heroines in the 1950’s, wonderful lips, body, shape, eyes, now roll on 50 years later and this is what Scarlett Johansson has and every film I see her in you are bewildered by her beauty and in some ways it must take away her creditability as a actress and recently a singer (very much an album like Nico from Velvet Underground would do if alive) a beautiful women who has married a interesting man in Ryan Reynolds .

7. Liya Kebede

A black model who has been gaining a more recognisable profile in the last 2-3 years, not just as a model but an actress, and spokes person for many issues. Deserved to be one of the four separate models on ‘The Black Issue’ Vogue cover along with Naomi Campbell and Jourdan Dunn. Her beauty is astounding and will only get better with age and will become the next Iman to have modeling work way into her mid-40’s to later life.

liya-kebede-1

8. Jennifer Lopez

A latin beautiful women of the highest order, Jennifer Lopez since the late 1990’s has been adapting and turning heads with her famous ASSet and her stunning looks. The multi talented actress, stylist, singer (may not have the greatest voice but some songs are okay), has been working hard and now seems to exude beauty still into her 40’s and still looks amazing, I can’t wait to see what the next 10 years brings.  Again another women who has not succumbed to plastic surgery.

9. Josie Maran

Again not such a known model worldwide, even in America she is known for who she’s dating (David Blaine being one of the lucky culprits). But the face of the cosmetic adverts of Maybeline, has been outstandingly beautiful and has a natural body, which reminds you of all the models past and present.

10. Drew Barrymore

Ever since ET Drew Barrymore’s face has been in my mind, and when she was older Drew’s beauty has always stood out. A natural, intelligent, and radiant person who is not regarded highly in beautiful lists and maybe not as a serious actress in Hollywood, but as a business women don’t dismiss her, as she co-produced the Charlie’s Angels films. A women like Scarlett has a very 1950’s quality about her. In her mid 30’s she seems to be not aging at all.

11. Penelope Cruz

A Spainish actress who has become more and more prominent in Hollywood, she has had a reputation as a heartbreaker due to her romances with Nicolas Cage, Mathew Mc and famously Tom Cruise. A naturally beautiful woman with great attributes and shines in many diverse films, blockbusters or independent films. Her confident approach mixed with her humble European nature makes her a very alluring women.

12.. Nicole Scherzinger

When watching music videos every so often you do see a beautiful women, and when I saw this sassy, pouting beautiful women singing and moving, I was hooked. ‘Don’t Cha’ this song was a call and response to beauty and the Pussycat Dolls were now known and seen. Nicole eludes sexiness, and has supermodel good looks, and to consider she is in her mid 30’s she will probably get more attractive when older. Her dress sense is also a little eccentric but can look amazing in plain outfits too. Every fashion magazine shoot and every music video she is in shows what a beautiful women she is, it is a shame they couldn’t’ t get her solo career going as the package is great but no songs with any musical bite.

13. Kate Winslet

The English rose with a naturally beautiful face, her warmth of her personality is showed on interviews and even off the cuff she still exudes sexiness, without even trying. I remember seeing Kate Winslet in titanic and gladly she was for a film which sank like a ship in my memory apart from her ravishing beauty and still now 10 years on Kate Winslet is one of the most beautiful women in the world..

14. Jessica Alba

From her first appearance on Dark Angel to her latest offerings in film Jessica Alba is a beautiful women and no denying that. Amazing facial features and a body to match and eventually her sexiness potential was shown in Sin City and from then on her offers of film roles (not all good-Awake?), but this women has a bright future and even a child birth won’t affect this ladies beauty. Rumour has it that she was Tom Cruise’s first choice before getting his team to contact Katie Holmes.

15. Gisele Bundchen

The Supermodel that has for over 10 years graced many catwalks and fashion magazines is still going strong. She is the highest paid supermodel in the world and is the worlds richest supermodel. Here beauty is obvious to see and her mix of Germanic descent and Brazilian upbringing makes her attributes attract a wide range of people hence her popularity. Also her humanitarian efforts should eb priasede and always seems to give beack to poor communties in Brazil to set-up projects..

16. Naomi Campbell

A model who has for a at least 20 years been gracing the catwalks and was one of the first major Supermodels, has been a influential women to many young Black women who wish to enter the fashion industry which is predominantly racist. Her personal life has overshadowed her effect on the industry and that is due to being unfairly persecuted but also her own ‘Diva’ demands haven’t helped. However at over 40 Naomi still has a body most 20 years old yearn for let alone over that age, a toned dancer’s body on an Amazonian beauty.

17. Audrey Tautou

When watching the film Amelia I was captivated by a beautiful face and slender frame, the film was not the most amazing experience for a film but adding to the visual aspect seeing this lady changed my views on certain types of beauty, in every film Audrey Tautou oozes class, beauty and a sophisticated look reminisce of her namesake Audrey Hepburn.

18. Charlize Theron

A former fashion model and ballet dancer but now known as an actress and film producer. She was discovered for acting in random circumstances and then three years later become known for her emotional acting abilities first displayed in The Devils Advocate. Her beauty is a mixture of Germanic/French decent and was born in South Africa and has a wide appeal among movie goers which is alluring but still can have a girl next door charm.

19. Naomi Harris

A outstandingly strong beautiful woman who has been and come through immense personal adversity, whilst growing up and studying for her degree to becoming a professional actress. I remember seeing her face in a magazine such as GQ as one to watch for the future and remembered her in television adaptation of Zadie Smith‘s White Teeth, and then appearing in films such as 28 Days Later, and then minor roles in big blockbusters. But Naomi’s best features for me is her approach to life being a Buddhist and how she will not leave London to move to Hollywood which I imagine has gone against her in gaining big roles instead of supporting roles. To me a strong minded woman exudes beauty and then her looks only compensates her attitude.
