Ariana Grande Surprises Fans on Her 25th Birthday with New Song ‘Raindrops’

June 26, 2018 in Uncategorized

Ariana Grande is celebrating her 25th birthday by giving her fans a present: another taste of her upcoming album Sweetener.

On Tuesday, the pop star offered a glimpse of the music video for her new track “Raindrops.”

“When raindrops fell down from the sky, the day you left me an angel cried. Oh, she cried. An angel cried. She cried,” Grande sings in the snippet, which she uploaded to Instagram.

In the beginning of the clip, Grande appears to be hanging upside down — similar to her “No Tears Left to Cry” video — until the camera pans out to reveal Grande sitting in the middle of a massive staircase.

“Raindrops” is the latest preview of Sweetener, due Aug. 17. Grande previously released the lead single “No Tears” and her latest Nicki Minaj collab “The Light Is Coming.” The singer first revealed she’d be sharing new music on Monday.

“Release the Children!”

June 26, 2018 in Uncategorized

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Immigrant-rights advocates asked a federal judge to order the release of parents separated from their children at the border, as demonstrators decrying the Trump administration’s immigration crackdown rallied Tuesday ahead of a Los Angeles appearance by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The court action was brought by the Los Angeles-based pro bono law firm Public Counsel on behalf of three Central American mothers whose children were taken from them by U.S. authorities in May.

More than 2,000 children in all have been separated from their parents and placed in government-contracted shelters in recent weeks under a now-abandoned Trump administration policy toward families caught illegally crossing the border. Public Counsel demanded that the parents be released and immediately reunited with their children.

“These parents are terrified for their children and want nothing more than to ensure the scarring that this experience has already caused does not continue to inflict irreparable harm,” Judy London, a Public Counsel attorney, said in a statement.

The Justice Department declined to comment.

Supreme Court Upholds Travel ban

June 26, 2018 in Uncategorized

Today, the Supreme Court has upheld President Donald Trump’s travel ban. This ruling has been one of the most highly anticipated decisions of this year, saying the ban is “squarely within” the president’s authority.

The Court’s 5-4 ruling that the third iteration of Trump’s controversial proposal, Travel Ban 3.0, is constitutional comes after two previous attempts by the administration to bar immigration to the United States from certain foreign countries.

President Trump reacted quickly, tweeting “SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN. Wow!”

That newest iteration of the travel ban is a presidential proclamation signed on Sept. 24, 2017, that indefinitely restricted most travel from the countries of Chad, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen -linking the restrictions to those countries’ purported vetting deficiencies. In April, The U.S. lifted travel restrictions on Chad.

Some of those countries have a majority-Muslim population, leading to accusations that the administration was unfairly targeting Muslims. Federal judges in Maryland and Hawaii issued injunctions shortly afterward that blocked the ban for the majority-Muslim countries but allowed restrictions from North Korea and Venezuela to go into effect.

Trump said in a statement the ruling is a “tremendous victory” for the American people.

An Everyday Chemical deemed Unsafe for Pregnant Women & Babies

November 8, 2017 in Uncategorized

Exposure to a known hormone disruptor chemical, Perchlorate, poses a threat for pregnant women and their unborn children according to a recent studies. At high doses, according to the EPA, the chemical impairs the thyroid’s ability to absorb iodine from the blood, in turn causing the gland to malfunction and potentially underproduce hormones involved in metabolism and infant and childhood development. The thyroid hormone being compromised is called T4,  which is necessary for fetal brain development. This may lead to developmental issues after birth.

Perchlorate is used as fuel starter for rockets, weapons, fireworks, airbag initiators, matches and flares. It can be found in some fertilizers, disinfectants, food packaging and plant killers. Studies have shown that it pops up in lots of everyday items we use such as lettuce, milk, and bottled water.

Trust Issues

July 18, 2017 in Uncategorized

*Cues Drake Music*

I’ve been struggling lately with trust. I just started dating a new guy and i’m nervous i’m going to mess it up. I’ve had issues in the past in regards to trusting others because I’ve been hurt in the past. Does anyone have any advice on how to get over trust issues. I really want to trust again, but it’s just hard to trust once you’ve been hurt before.

Sincerely,

Confused

Am I Tripping?

July 12, 2017 in Uncategorized

Okay y’all, I need your advice…

One of my girlfriends just sent me a photo of my boyfriend downtown with this woman who I cannot recognize. Yes, I’m a tad crazy, aren’t we all? lol. Don’t judge me. So i called him because I wanted to see if he would pick up while she was around but he did not answer. He has never been late coming home, or gave any indication that he is cheating. Do you think he is seeing another woman? What should i do?

My Boyfriend Won’t add me on social media

July 4, 2017 in Uncategorized

I started dating this guy, about 2 months ago. Everything is going great, I really like him and can see this actually going somewhere. The other night I brought up casually about why we aren’t friends on social media (instagram and Facebook) and he kind of shrugged it off like, “I usually don’t friend girls I’m dating, because it can cause unnecessary problems”. The way he said it had a kind of finality tone to it, so I didn’t press him any more. However, it’s really bothered me, because I don’t see why he wouldn’t want to add me on social media unless he’s hiding something. I’ve gotten mixed responses from my friends about it, and wondering what would you do or think in my situation?

Complication

May 20, 2017 in Uncategorized

I was dating my now ex, for about 4 months, everything seemed to be great. However, out of nowhere he calls me and breaks up with me. He says, “He needs time to work on himself.” … but then a week later he called me and told he was back with his ex! So then they were together for about 2/3 months…. and I just happened to reach out to say hello. (I know, don’t judge me.) Then we start talking and he tells me that he and his ex are over….

So now, we are back hanging out and sleeping together, however, he has not said that he wants to get back in a relationship with me. I’ve asked him about it and he says he doesn’t know, but he knows he does not want to lose me.

What should I do?
