jonathan ferrell shot killed by police unarmed former florida a and m football player ap

Sad, sad, sad.

A former Florida A&M University football player was gunned down by police on Saturday in North Carolina.

The victim, Jonathan Ferrell, had been in a car accident and had to walk half a mile to the nearest house. He knocked loudly on a woman’s door for help, and she opened it, thinking it was her husband. When she saw it was a stranger, she slammed it shut and called 911.

The police responded to the breaking and entering call, and saw an unarmed Ferrell walking towards them. They tased him, but when Ferrell kept coming for the cops, officer Randall Kerrick shot Ferrell several times, killing him.

At the time, the police said it was an “appropriate and lawful” shooting, but later did a 180. Their statement said:

Taco Bell employee lawsuit

In April of 2010, a Taco Bell in eastern North Carolina fired an employee named Christopher Abbey because he refused to cut his hair. Now we bet they are totally regretting that decision.

Family Foods Inc., the group that owns and operates a few of the mexican themed fast food restaurants in the area, has settled a religious discrimination lawsuit filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on behalf of the practicing Nazirite.

Abbey has not cut his hair since he was

A Facebook App That Reveals Friends With STDs?

Filed under: Tech TalkFacebookHealth

Facebook STDs

Not a single person would sign up for this, sadly, as we feel like deep down this is a very personal set of information that nobody wants shared online.

Plus it would take Facebook to even creepier levels (how is that possible??), no matter how good the intentions are!

Anyway, would it be like checking in? LOLz!

Here's what one of the researchers at University of North Carolina believes:

“When we looked at the networks, we could connect many of the cases to sexual encounters, and when we asked who they hung out with, who they knew, we could connect 80 percent of the cases."

While that's certainly nobel, we just don't think people will give up their privacy like that! We're all for opening up discussions, though, and reducing social stigma. We just don't see people wanting the whole world to know.

There IS a virus based app that might do us some good, though: University of California, San Diego, has created an app that predicts your risk of catching the flu, using status updates from your social network.

If they released this STD App, would U take part??
