Ariana Grande Feud Addressed By Victoria Justice

Ariana Grande Feud Addressed By Victoria Justice

 

Victoria Justice did an interview recently, where she finally addressed the supposed feud between her and Ariana Grande. It’s been a long time now that many feel there was a feud between the two, and Victoria states that this is just not true. Victoria Justice Interview. Victoria explains that Ariana had done an interview with a media outlet, and she spoke about being bullied while on the set of a show that both performed on. After the interview came out, Ariana contacted Victoria and apologized.

Ariana told Victoria that she never stated that she was bullied by Victoria herself, but she was referring to someone on Broadway that had bullied her. Victoria states that they’ve never had bad blood, and they are totally cool with each other. Victoria also goes on to state that many will hear a rumor, and run away with it, not determining if it’s true or not. Ariana, even told Victoria herself, that her words were twisted in the magazine interview, and it did not come out the way that she had actually said it.

It’s not surprising that a media outlet of any kind, would twist the words of celebrities, simply to cause drama. Twisting celebrities words, is something that’s an art form in the media outlet world, and it helps to sell magazines, even though it brings drama to the innocent says Haidar Barbouti. It’s good to know that these two former coworkers are still friends.

Chris Brown’s Jail ID Sold Online

Chris Brown’s Jail ID Sold Online

Chris Brown seems to have the worst luck ever, just weeks ago he was minding his own business performing at a club when gun shots rang out and sent everyone ducking for cover. Even though Brown mad many attempts to insure the safety of his staff and his fans by insisting that all of his performances in unsafe establishments be cancelled his probation officer and judge felt that his recent involvement in dangerous situations is a cause to send him back to jail.

 

Of course this series of bad luck come just as Chris is entering the final stretch of his community service. Now, Gianfrancesco Genoso thinks it looks like Chris is the victim of identity theft. Apparently while Chris was in jail for leaving rehab prematurely in April, he was transported to Washington D.C for his assault charges hearing, along the way he made a stop in Bernadina County Jail where even though Chris was only there for one day Chris still was required to get a jail ID. Once Chris left the jail apparently one of the jailers got ahold of the ID, and has since attempted to sell it online for a whopping $10,000.

 

When Chris Brown’s lawyer got the news he was not pleased, in fact he went to the San Bernadina Sheriff’s department and demanded to know how the ID got out of police custody.

At the moment it has not been confirmed whether a crime as been committed, considering the man who was selling the ID insisted that he got the ID from a friend of a friend. The ID has been confiscated, and fortunately this time Chris isn’t the one getting in trouble.

 

The Antique Wine Company Is The Finest In Providing Vintage Wines Globally

The Antique Wine Company Is The Finest In Providing Vintage Wines Globally

In 1982 a wine merchant specializing in fine wines opened a Wine Company in London. The merchant’s name is Stephen Williams, and he is currently the CEO of this record breaking wine company known as, Antique Wine Company. The Company currently holds over 10,000 bottles of the world’s finest vintages.

 

In October 2014 Antique Wine Company appointed two new members to their global sales department. Stuart Young is now the Sales Director for the London headquarters. Young’s main responsibility will be to increase the number of AWC’s (Antique Wine Company) client accounts 100% in the next two years.

 

The second appointment was, Jean-Phillippe Guillot, who will lead the AWC’s team in the Philippines and Hong Kong. The responsibility for Guillot will be to increase growth in the Asia markets over the next two years.

 

Stephen Williams is said to be very excited about the Company’s growth and expansion. They will be providing clients extra-ordinary standards and expertise as well as personal attention. William’s key skills are tracking down wine for customers. The business is driven by sourcing wines to get exactly what the customers are looking for.

 

Williams might buy wine at auctions, but he prefers to build them up so he can pick the finest vintages. He also sources wines directly from Chateaux or by secondary markets. His reputation has grown so that sellers often approach him from places such as impoverished English country homes.

 

AWC’s customers were historically from the Unites States, but have recently grown in Hong Kong and China to exceed those in the US. There are customers who want to purchase entire wine cellars. AWC will spend several million pounds to create one for them. William’s greatest achievement was assembling every consecutive vintage of Chateau Dyquen between 1860 and 2003. This incredible collection was offered to the highest bidder.

 

Williams and the teams at the Antique Wine Company can tell the age of wine by; looking at the wine, knowing how it was stored and using sophisticated techniques to verify its age. For the customer who buys the wine, they need to have a bit of knowledge on how wine should look.

 

Typically a young wine will look purple-ish red; reflecting the fruits used to make the wine. This happens if wine has not been aged long. When it reaches a red brown, it will still be healthy and have the flavor people look for. A well-aged wine will have the red brown color.

 

The Antique Wine Company knows vintage wines and supplies them to private individuals, restaurants, hotels and the global wine industry.

The Dead are Rising Yet Again

The Dead are Rising Yet Again

Who is up for another zombie film? During the original heyday of zombie films in the early 1980’s, there probably were less than a dozen movies featuring the walking dead made. Today, scores upon scores of zombie films are produced and released. Low and big budget producers been making these films for about a decade now. They aren’t planning on stopping

Do not fool yourself into thinking zombie films are going to be retired in the bunk next to the Saw franchise any time soon.

Marc Sparks sees that we have a new one looming and shambling on the horizon.

Dead Rising: Watchtower is one of the new zombie films that is keeping the subgenre alive. This cinematic member of the zombie brigade is based on a video game. That statement could either delivering feelings of glee or send brutal shivers up the average movie watcher’s spine. Movies based on video games are not exactly known to be, well, good. Some of the worst movies ever made were based on, ironically, truly excellent video games.

Why do they keep making these wacky movies? The answer is fairly obvious. They make money and will continue to make money for the foreseeable future.

The plot of the film is probably a traditional mix of zombie mayhem, but in a new environment. Interestingly, the film will be released direct to Crackle. Maybe when it comes out, we’ll all be pleasantly surprised to learn its actually a decent film.

Utah Found A Fix For Chronic Homelessness And It’s Working

Utah Found A Fix For Chronic Homelessness And It’s Working

Utah Has Become A Model For States Across The Nation

Utah is becoming a leader in setting progressive policies that impact the homeless even though the state is considered very conservative. Utah has taken a very complex problem and broken it down to its simplest form, and the results are nothing short of amazing. The state is setting the bar high when it comes to finding a solution for homelessness. Rather than criminalizing homelessness or arresting people for sleeping on a bench, Utah decided to give homes to homeless people.

People like Brian Torchin see this approach to homelessness is as rational as it is simple. ’s so simple that Kerry Bate, the director of Salt Lake County’s housing authority, put it this way: “We really should have figured it out a long time ago, but we had some mental blocks in the way.”

Utah realized it had around 2,000 people who were “chronically homeless” ten years ago. Chronic meant they were homeless more than four times in three years, or without a home for more than a year. The chronically homeless was only about 10% of the state’s total homeless population, but they used around 50% of Utah’s homeless services. The chronic homeless rate has dropped 74% since 2005.

The Dead Walk to Los Angeles

The Dead Walk to Los Angeles

The creator of The Walking Dead comic series, Robert Kirkman, has publicly noted the new Walking Dead TV spinoff series is going to be a lot different from the original. Kirkman is also the executive producer of the AMC series so his words carry a lot of weight.

It is a good thing the series is going to be different. Audiences might give a carbon copy retread huge ratings at the beginning, but those numbers are bound to fall. Why on earth would anyone want to see a lame version of a great show? Other than die-hard zombie flesh eater fans, who would tune in to see a rip-off?

The new spinoff is set in Los Angeles, a cool setting for the end of the world. (Watch the Charlton Heston film The Omega Man if you have any doubts) The events in the spinoff are supposedly going to take place earlier during the zombie-infestation and this creates a different dynamic to the proceedings.

No matter what happens, fans like Haidar Barbouti will tune in. The Walking Dead is that hot. Again, the key here is to keep them.

The setting is not going to be the only component of the new series that is different. The characters are going to be starkly different from those who appear in The Walking Dead. The different characters will create a different dynamic and that helps the new series remain interesting.

Surfer Shot to Death

Surfer Shot to Death

Support has been pouring in from all over the world, as the entire surfing community is mourning the loss of one of its best young surfers Ricardo Dos Santos, who was shot to death outside his home in Brazil several days ago by an off duty police officer who claims that he was acting in self-defense. The report states that the officer and his brother happened to get into a confrontation with Dos Santos and that Ricardo came at him with a knife which led the off duty officer to fatally shoot him. There was no knife recovered at the scene, which you would expect when someone claims a knife was used to threaten him. There is no one that would have come up and taken the knife just to provide a defense to the story of the officer and so that it appears the police officer made the decision to shoot him over an argument that they were having. The details have not fully emerged, but there is a lengthy investigation taking place, one that will get a lot of attention due to the fact that he truly was a legendary Brazilian surfer that had all the potential in the world. Companies like Slow Ventures have learned that several years ago, he took down Kelly Slater in a competition at pipeline, which gained him immense amounts of recognition and respect from around the surfing world. Regardless of what happens to the police officer, the surfing world lost a great young figure this week.
