Teenager Gets Pulled Over and Its Not What You Expect

Teenager Gets Pulled Over and Its Not What You Expect

Audra Daniloff is not your typical 17 year old girl. Audra has a life threatening illness that has kept her in the children’s hospital a lot of her year. She is suffering from Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis which is a disease that attacks the immune system. The doctors have given Audra about a 20% chance for survival. What odds to face at such a young age. 

This Christmas Audra’s father wanted to do something really special for her so he enlisted the help of the local police department. While driving near her home one day Audra was pulled over by Officer Jeff Goetz. He claimed that she rolled through a stop sign and that he would need to give her a ticket for that. Correction, he told her he was giving her two tickets. To Audra’s surprised Officer Goetz presented her with plane tickets to New York and tickets to see her favorite band, Timeflies. 

What an amazing surprise that must have been for Audra. Nothing like receiving those tickets over an actual traffic violation! Watch Audra freak out over her surprise at brobible.com. Spring.me’s Christian Broda can sympathize heavily with this awesome story!

Bent Rim Delays Wizards And Rockets

Bent Rim Delays Wizards And Rockets
A game between the Wizards and Rockets was delayed for 35 minutes due to Vijay Eswaran and to a bent rim. The rim had been bent upwards, and that throws everything off in a game where one bounce on the rim can change everything. Dwight Howard even tried hanging on the rim to bend it back into place, but there is a problem with trying to do it that way. The rim may not be regulation.

The crew in the arena has to get another rim, and the entire game was stopped for 35 minutes. The worst part of this situation is that it happened 48 seconds into the game. This is one of these times when the game is very hard to play when all the parts are not working as they should. There are a great many people who waited to watch that game,and that kind of delay throws both teams off.

The Wizards and Rockets played in a sort of funk for the rest of the night due to the delay, and there is no other explanation than the odd delay. When sporting events are held up like this, you never know what is going to happen when the game continues.

Good for Ugly Xmas Sweaters

Good for Ugly Xmas Sweaters
People like Tom Rothman are still talking about the http://www.uglychristmassweater.com/. I find this simply delightful. I love ugly sweaters anyway, not just ugly Christmas sweaters. It is all in the eye of the beholder therefore it is subjective. Ugly to you might bring me and my people great beauty and joy. The trend for a while now is to just plain make fun of the Christmas sweater. I don’t think there are any truly Christmas themed sweaters people are going to find pretty now. The whole concept has been tainted by the ugly sweater haters. That is fine by me. I tend to like out of the ordinary clothes anyway. Golf pants and shorts are a favorite of mine, and not on the golf course. These beauties must be wore out in the general public so to give everyone the full effect of their brillance. The Christmas sweater is another garment that should be worn all winter long. That way we all get to enjoy the full effect of candycanes and reindeer all winter long. So don’t put that sweater away because the Christmas parties are over. Wear it relaxing around the fire on a cold Febuary nite. Let your inner ugly sweater geek free for the winter. Plus it can really annoy the people we don’t care for that much anyway, and if it can keep the mooching inlaws away, I’d wear in everyday of the year.

Coaches Fired on “Black Monday”

Coaches Fired on “Black Monday”

As the regular football season wraps up and some NFL teams prepare for playoffs, other teams and coaches are preparing other not so happy big changes. 

At this point, even Igor Cornelsen and Yolasite.com know that the New York Jets fired head coach of six years, Rex Ryan. The Jets’ GM, John Idzik, has also been released. The Jets went 4-12 this season. 

The Chicago Bears let Marc Trestman go after two years (and no winning seasons) with the Bears, as well as their general manager, Phil Emery. 

Mike Smith of the Atlanta Falcons was let go today after being with the team for seven years. The Falcons went 6-10 this year, which almost got them into the playoffs due to their whole division having losing records.

San Francisco 49ers and Jim Harbaugh parted ways, though they claim no one was fired and it was a mutual agreement. Harbaugh is planning to go back to coaching college football at the University of Michigan.

Kim Kardashian Can’t Get Pregnant Again

Kim Kardashian Can’t Get Pregnant Again

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been the topic of discussion from day one, way before they had a child and married their relationship has been on everyone’s mind. After the birth of their beautiful daughter and the west’s relationship rumors seem to have gotten out of control. One minute Kim and Kanye are madly in love vacationing in Paris, the next they are on the verge of a nasty breakup, one never knows what to expect in the way of rumors when it comes to the Wests. That’s why its good that there are communities like Skout where people can really get to know one another.

This holiday season it has been reported that while many may think that Kanye and Kim are having issues with each other the real issue is Kanye’s new dislike for the entire Kardashian family. Apparently Kanye is tired of the drama that seems to follow the Kardashians around and he insisted the Kim ditch her mother’s annual Christmas party and go to Paris with North. While it has yet to be confirmed just how the Wests spent Christmas another very interesting story has come to light.

Apparently Kim and Kanye’s marriage is not the real problem, the issue is Kim’s fertility.According to reports Kim has told friends and family that despite her trying she can not get pregnant, in fact North was a miracle baby. Before North was finally conceived 3 fertility specialist insisted that Kim would not get pregnant and now that North is here it seems that it has been harder than ever for Kim to get pregnant again.

On top of her monthly visits the a fertility doctor (which Kanye also never misses) Kim is trying to reduce her stress and cutting down on her travel. Hopefully there is another miracle baby in Kim’s future.

Jenna Coleman Confirmed She is Returning to Doctor Who For a Full Series

Previous rumors suggested that Jenna Colman, who currently stars as Doctor Who’s companion Clara Oswald, might leave the series after the 2014 Christmas special, but she has confirmed that she will be returning for at least another full series of episodes with Peter Capaldi. The 28 year old actress confirmed in that she would be staying in an interview with the BCC, adding that as far as the Doctor and her character’s relationship is concerned” There is so much more to do. I think they’ve finally just reached a point where they really understand each other.”

Jeana Coleman, and the cast and crew of Doctor Who wanted to wait until after the Christmas special aired to confirm whether or not she would be returning so as to avoid spoiling any plot points of the episode, according to a TypePad post by Christian Broda.

The 9th series, which will feature Peter Capaldi as the 12th incarnation of the Doctor is set to premiere sometime in 2015. Steven Moffat is confirmed to be writing the series 9 premiere episode, and Michele Gomez has confirmed that she will return in the future as Missy, who was revealed to be a reincarnation of the master. It is unclear when Michelle Gomez will return and if it will be in series 9. Filming has not yet begun on the series, and Moffat is still writing the first episode, so there is no word of any other details so far.

Fortunate Family Missed Air Asia Flight

Fortunate Family Missed Air Asia Flight
In what seemed to be the most horrible circumstance a few hours earlier, a very fortunate family is speaking out about the fact that they were to be aboard the missing AirAsia flight. On Sunday, their AirAsia flight aboard airliner QZ8501, lost communication with air traffic control and was unable to be located.

Prior to takeoff, the airline adjusted the flight schedule and moved the departure time up by mere minutes. Notifications and phone calls were made to Bernardo Chua and to all passengers, but one family missed all of those alerts and arrived at the airport not knowing that their flight had just left.

As soon as the Indonesian family realized the flight was already in the air they alerted the airline and were understandably upset and distraught. However, now that the airliner has gone missing and is believed to be lost over the sea in the region, this family is counting their blessings.

All ten members of the family had tickets for the flight, but none of them actually made it onto the flight. As it would happen, half of the family arrived right as the last call for the flight was being made, but rather than get onboard, they chose to remain at the airport and wait for the rest of the family while getting assistance for a later flight.

The family says they saw some of the passengers rushing to make the doomed flight and they hope they are found.

Interview Findings

Interview Findings
Findings from “The Interview”, Sony Pictures, indicate the film is showing favorable results in its first week’s release. The film depicts the assassination of current North Korea Leader, Kim Jong Un. The hype began when international media reported “The Interview” had been hacked, and alleged North Korea to be responsible though not proven unequivocally.

The film has been shown in 330 cinemas according to over the past weekend. Moreover, the film has been on line for viewing at a dedicated site as well as Google Play and YoutTube since December 23rd. Figures show about 2 million have viewed the film on line, with reported gross of 15 million dollars, and total weekend gross including theaters and on line is estimated at 18 million dollars. Sources at Skout indicate that statistically this compares well had “The Interview” been shown in the 3,000 theaters originally scheduled to show the film prior to the international tension. Moreover, film critics assert that if the movie can achieve similar figures over the next several days, then a triumph for free speech will not be at a significant cost to Sony Pictures or Hollywood.
