Percy Cummings ejaculates on TSA Agent during pat down

Thursday, December 9, 2010

Percy Cummings, a 47 year old gay interior designer, was arrested at San Francisco International Airport for ejaculating on a TSA office who was patting him for security check. The TSA full body scan detector was going off due to the multiple metal piercings on Cummings’ penis.

Percy Cummings ejaculates on TSA agent

Percy Cummings’ partner Sergio Armani says that the agent spent “an inordinate amount of time groping” the private parts of Cummings which was the reason for the arousal. The rules set forth by TSA express that anyone who ejaculates during a pat down is subject to being arrested.The interior designer was charged with sexual assault, even tough it would seem that his premature ejaculation was out of his control. At a time when the TSA is being deeply criticized by much of society, it can’t help their public image to send a innocent man to prison. Percy Cummings allegedly had history of previous sexual dysfunction, so it will be interesting to see what will be the charges that stick on Mr. Cummings.

Analyst: Howard Stern-Sirius XM Contract Worth $400 Million

NEW YORK - Sirius XM and Howard Stern on Thursday morning didn't detail financial terms of their new five year relationship, but at least one analyst estimates it is worth $400 million over the term of the contract, compared to $500 million for his previous five-year contract.
Lazard Capital Markets analyst Barton Crockett in a first reaction estimated that the deal is likely consistent with his expectations and consistent with the cash payments Stern has received in his first Sirius deal, but the shock jockey likely loses the stock portion of his compensation.
Wall Street analysts wondered though if Stern may work only three instead of four days a week given that he had expressed an interest in scaling back his time commitment.
"We have been modeling that Stern would remain, as part of flattish overall programming costs, whereby Stern continues to receive $80 million cash per year, consistent with his former deal expiring at year-end," Crockett said. "We had also assumed no stock, a step down from the $100 million, five-year stock component of the former deal."
Crockett told The Hollywood Reporter though that there may be other ways Stern may get added value from his new contract. He mentioned success-based compensation, such as in the form of bonus-type payments if the rollout of his programming on mobile devices hits certain targets, as a possibility. Or he may work less than under his previous deal. "There is tons of flexibility to structure this, but we just don't know for sure without disclosures," Crockett said.
The analyst said he assumes that the new Stern deal is costing Sirius less than the first one or the same amount at most because CFO David Frear guided Wall Street observers to expect an "overall modest long-term easing of programming costs" in a earlier this week. Crockett said he is maintaining his $1.65 price target on Sirius shares.
David Joyce, analyst at Miller Tabak, also said he is not sure how many days Stern will work. His most recent model calls for $60 million per year for three work days a week, but Stern may as well have decided to stay at four days for $80 million a year. Assuming unchanged cash earnings, hat would give Stern $300 million-$400 million.
Either way, Wall Street reacted positively to the news of the contract renewal, which observers argued will allow Sirius to maintain its recent subscriber momentum without overpaying. Plus, it gives the company the right to get Stern onto mobile devices. The stock was up 6.4% at $1.40 in early trading.
"This is a net positive for Sirius," said Joyce: "This talent retention should salvage Sirius' subscriber...[and financial] growth."

AT&T Rated Worst Cellular Provider in U.S. by Consumer Reports

Tuesday, December 7, 2010

ChattahBox U.S. News)—In a survey of 58,000 readers, Consumer Reports found that AT&T’s service ranked the lowest among American cellular carriers, and iPhone users were “by far, the least satisfied” with AT&T as their carrier, the Wall Street Journal reports. This news comes at an already unfortunate time for AT&T, with the carrier facing competition from other cellular companies who may end up also offering the iPhone, which AT&T currently carries exclusively.
AT&T spent $2 billion this year to correct weaknesses in its network following complaints of dropped calls and network quality. The company said in a statement that it takes the low Consumer Reports ranking seriously and will continue to look for ways to improve customers’ experiences, WSJ reports.
Consumer Reports ranked U.S. Cellular Corp. as the highest rated cellular company, despite the fact that the small company currently has only 6.1 million customers. Coming in second was Verizon, which has 93.2 million subscribers, WSJ reports.

Jets Order New York Steakhouse to Remove 'Jets-Themed' Menu Items

For all the controversy the New York Jets have been involved with this season, you'd think they'd stop sweating the small stuff.
According to the New York Post, however, the Jets have ordered a local steakhouse to take off certain Jets-themed menu items were not authorized by the team.
Prime KO Japanese Steakhouse, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, was serving "green on green Jets salad" and a "Jets dragon roll" until team spokeswoman Jessica Ciccone called the restaurant and demanded the items be taken off the menu. Despite the fact that the head chef, Makoto Kameyama, is a huge fan, the Jets apparently care very strongly about protecting their brand.
Meanwhile, Kameyama, originally from Japan, continues to support his favorite team, and even added a Jets-themed latke to the menu for Hanukkah -- a potato pancake topped with basil, to be specific.

December 7 1941: Famous Pearl Harbor Day Quotes

Want to teach your children about Pearl Harbor Day? It occurred on December 7 1941, when the Japanese bombed the U.S. base at Pearl Harbor in a surprise attack that led to the U.S. entering World War II. Here’s a fun fact I learned from my dear college roommate, who is Japanese and was born on Dec : Their Pearl Harbor Day is not Dec 7 1941 but actually December 8, because of the difference in time zones.
Here are some Pearl Harbor Day quotes from famous people that you can share with your kids, including the most famous one of all from Franklin D. Roosevelt, as well as one (from John Belushi) that you may want to save till they’re older:
“Yesterday, December 7, 1941, a date which will live in infamy , the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan. … As Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense. … With confidence in our armed forces,  with the unbounded determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph, so help us God.” — President Franklin D. Roosevelt
“A gigantic fleet… has massed in Pearl Harbor. This fleet will be utterly crushed with one blow at the very beginning of hostilities…Heaven will bear witness to the righteousness of our struggle.”
– Rear-Admiral Ito, Chief of Staff of the Combined Fleet
“Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?” John Belushi, “Animal House”
“As costly as it was in the lives of our men and women in uniform, in military assets, and in esteem and pride, Pearl Harbor was a watershed moment for America.” U.S. Rep. Joe Baca (D-Calif.)
Everybody knows about Pearl Harbor. The thing that really fascinated me is that through this tragedy there was this amazing American heroism.” — Michael Bay, movie director
“Today at Pearl Harbor, veterans are gathering to pay tribute to the young men they remember who never escaped the sunken ships. And over the years, some Pearl Harbor veterans have made a last request. They ask that their ashes be brought down and placed inside the USS Arizona. After the long lives given them, they wanted to rest besides the best men they ever knew. Such loyalty and love remain the greatest strength of the United States Navy.” – President George W. Bush, Pearl Harbor Day 2001

Actress Amber Heard comes out as lesbian

Monday, December 6, 2010

Actress Amber Heard is out and proud. On Saturday, the pretty "Pineapple Express" star stepped out for the first time with her partner Tasya van Ree at the GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) 25th Anniversary party.
In an interview with AfterEllen.com, Heard, 24, said "GLAAD is one of the many reasons that I, as a 24-year-old, can come out." Heard — Johnny Depp's onscreen love in the upcoming film "The Rum Diary" — explained why she came out:
"I think when I became aware of my role in the media, I had to ask myself an important question 'Am I part of the problem?' And I think that when millions and millions of hard-working, tax paying Americans are denied their rights and denied their equality, you have to ask yourself what are the factors that are an epidemic problem and that's what this is.
"Injustice can never be stood for. It always must be fought against and I just was sick of it being a problem," Heard said, adding, "I personally think that if you deny something or if you hide something you're inadvertently admitting it's wrong. I don't feel like I'm wrong."
She gushed about love Van Ree, a photographer and artist she's been seeing since 2008.
"She is beautiful," Heard said.  "I mean, you'd have to be crazy not to want to go out with her!"

St. Nicholas Day: Today is St. Nicholas Day!

On some days, we all revert to our childhoods, Saint Nicholas Day is the perfect time to do so.
Google even chose to celebrate Saint Nicholas Day by putting out some boots and hoping that Saint Nicholas will fill them with some treats. In Germany, their search engine displays a St. Nikolaus drawing that honors the German tradition. Along with Germany, there are many more countries around Europe that are celebrating today.
Saint Nicholas has been known to bring joy to children in many countries. Children prepare their boots, making sure they are cleaned and polished, to receive gifts from the saint.
The Saint is also celebrated in Italy, Turkey, Greece, Belgium, France, Bulgaria, Romania, Albania, Georgia, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Luxembourg, Montenegro, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Croatia, Hungary and the Czech Republic.
Children who were good throughout the year can expect to find their boots filled with coins, oranges, sweets and other gifts. However, the naughty children will receive a rod in their boots, representative of punishment. The saint is kind and forgiving so they seldom get such a “blessing.”
Saint Nicholas is loosely the basis for the mythical holiday figure, Santa Claus, that is most familiar with Americans. The name Santa Claus is originally derived from a winter holiday figure Sinterklaas, celebrated in the Netherlands, Aruba, Belgium and Curacao. Sadly, the traditional meaning of the celebration of Saint Nicholas has been lost. Instead, the US representation of Santa Claus is becoming stronger and more popular.
Every country that celebrates Saint Nicholas has its own traditions and legends related to the saint. When Saint Nicholas Day approaches, the saint also announces the start of the winter holidays like Christmas and New Year, a tradition that most counties who celebrate Saint Nicholas acknowledge.
Fortunately, the saint is generous with everyone, which makes December the perfect time to contemplate the past and hopeful forigve in the future.
