December 27, 2012

A Florida man is fighting for his life after being doused with gasoline and set on fire on Christmas in a horrific attack that has baffled police.

Darrell Brackett, 44, was driving with his girlfriend at 11:30 p.m. in Miami when his car ran out of gas and he walked to a nearby U-Gas station to fill up a can of gas. He told his girlfriend to wait for him in the car.

After leaving the station, “witnesses reported that they saw him running in the middle of the street on fire,” Miami-Dade Police said in a statement.

Brackett’s mother Bridgett Brackett said she has been told that her son was surrounded by three men who “doused him with gas and set him on fire.”

“It’s heartbreaking. It’s horrendous,” Bridgett Brackett told ABCNews.com. “I would never imagine that this would happen to my son.”

An unidentified woman who was passing by spotted Brackett and helped him roll around in the sand and dirt near the road to put the fire out.

“If she hadn’t done that, he would have burned to death,” his mother said.

Brackett was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital where he is in the burn center’s intensive care unit.

Earlier in the day, Brackett and his girlfriend had had a cookout and visited with his mother and family. Now, his mother was rushing to his hospital bedside.

“He was semi-alert. He could hear me, moving his eyes and thrashing around in the bed,” she said.

He suffered from burns on 75 percent of his body, including his legs, torso and face.

“He has no skin left on his body,” Bridgett Brackett said. “The only things that didn’t burn were his feet and short jeans.”

Brackett was originally in extremely critical condition and is now in stable condition after being placed in a medically induced coma, his mother said. She said doctors plan on using cadaver skin to reconstruct his skin.

Doctors will be watching him closely over the weekend, hoping that he does not develop an infection, which could cause him to take a turn for the worse.

“My son is fighting for his life…It’s touch and go right now. We’re just seeing how things progress and keeping up hope,” she said. “I believe in God. My son is a fighter.”

Brackett said authorities told her that his son had kept repeating one thing about his attackers when authorities arrived on scene, “The only thing I did was ask a question and they didn’t have to do this to me.”

Police said today that they have not yet identified a motive or any suspects in the case.

“Based on the preliminary investigation, the Miami-Dade Police Department Arson Squad is investigating this incident as a possible attempted murder,” police said in a statement.

Darrell Brackett works for a landscaping company and his mother said her only son would not have done anything to deserve the attack.

“He’s a fun-loving guy,” she said. “He doesn’t bother anybody. He was just going about his business.”

The Brackett family has made flyers about the incident and will be canvassing the neighborhood around the gas station in hopes of finding anyone who may have seen the incident or have more information. They are also looking for the woman who helped save Brackett in order to thank her.

“Nobody can imagine how a person could be so cruel to another human being for no reason,” Brackett said. “It’s sad how the world has changed so much.”

Former US President George H W Bush has been in intensive care with a fever since Sunday, a spokesman has revealed.

Jim McGrath said he had had a “series of setbacks” and remained in a “guarded condition”, but was alert and conversing with family and doctors.

Mr Bush, aged 88, has been in the Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas, since he was taken there for bronchitis treatment on 23 November.

He is the oldest living former president and a World War II veteran.

Mr Bush was Ronald Reagan’s vice-president for two terms and became the 41st president in 1989, but was defeated by Democrat Bill Clinton when he stood for re-election in 1992.

‘Humorous banter’

Mr Bush was now on a liquids-only diet, the spokesman said, describing his ailment as “a stubborn fever that won’t go away”.

He said the former president had not been able to celebrate Christmas in the traditional sense but his family was with him.

“He’s conscious and he’s able to engage in humorous banter with his doctor,” Mr McGrath said.

He also said that doctors were cautiously optimistic about Mr Bush’s treatment.

When first admitted, the former president had only been expected to stay in hospital a few days, but a persistent fever kept him in hospital until and over Christmas.

On Christmas Day, Mr Bush was visited by his wife, Barbara, his son Neil and other family members.

He has also been visited twice by his son George W Bush, who served as 43rd president in 2001-09.

Randi Zuckerberg, the former marketing director of Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg‘s sister, was not happy at the end of her Christmas day.

A photo she posted to her Facebook account of her family, including the Facebook CEO, playing around with Facebook’s new Poke app, ended up on Twitter.

The photo was tweeted by Callie Schweitzer, a marketing executive at Vox Media, when she thought that it was a public photo on Facebook. Schweitzer followed or subscribed to Zuckerberg’s public Facebook feed and thought the update was public.

But it wasn’t. According to Buzzfeed and Zuckerberg’s tweets, Schweitzer was friends with another one of the Zuckerberg sisters and because she was tagged she was able to see it. “.@randizuckerberg demonstrates her family’s response to Poke #GAH,” Schweitzer tweeted along with the photo.

It didn’t take long for Randi Zuckerberg to respond. “Not sure where you got this photo. I posted it to friends only on FB. You reposting it to Twitter is way uncool,” she said on Twitter. Schweitzer clarified that she thought it was public, apologized and removed the photo promptly. Of course, this is the Internet —  the photo wasn’t removed entirely. Many web sites, including BuzzfeedBusiness InsiderMashable and Gizmodo all ran the photo.VentureBeat even said even Zuckerbergs are tripped up by Facebook’s privacy settings.

However, Zuckerberg tweeted that “it’s not about privacy settings, it’s about human decency.”ht randi zuckerberg tweet lpl 121226 wblog Zuckerbergs Sister Unhappy When Facebook Photo Goes Public

The snafu does illustrate something Facebook has started highlighting in its recent privacy controls overhaul — that your Timeline is separate than other places on Facebook and that tagged photos can still be viewed by others. Starting last Friday, Facebook rolled out its redesigned and cleaner privacytools. One of the additions included educational messages, which pop up when you untag a photo. The message tells users that the photo still might be visible by others.

AllThingD’s Mike Issac argues though that this has nothing to do with Facebook privacy settings, but rather bad judgement. “No matter how many privacy settings you tweak, no matter what you consider proper ‘digital etiquette,’ there is no accounting for the taste and discretion of your friends,” Issac wrote.

In Zuckerberg’s case, it’s hard to say where the blame should be put, but unfortunately for her, the photo is now visible to many, many others.

abc wabc dog stolen ll 121225 wblog Video: Christmas Shopping Rush Dognapper

December 26, 2012

A heartbroken 7-year-old girl’s Christmas wish came true when New York City cops nabbed the Grinch that stole her dog and a good Samaritan helped reunite her with the missing pooch.

On Christmas Day, a beaming Mia Bendray, 7, wrapped her arms around Marley, the Cavalier King Charles spaniel, who had been brazenly unleashed and taken from outside a shop in Manhattan’s Washington Heights neighborhood on Christmas Eve. The theft was caught on tape and police provided the video to news outlets.

“Thank you, the people of Washington Heights… Those great Samaritans… And now we got him on Christmas Day,” Mia’s mother Angie Estrada told WABC-TV.

The dog was rescued by Tina Cohen, a high school Spanish teacher, who came across a man on Monday in another section of Manhattan standing on a street corner and yelling that he had a dog for sale.

“I said that’s not right. I said I’d like to buy the dog. I only have $100,” Cohen said.

When the man demanded more cash, Cohen said she went to a nearby Staples and bought merchandise she then returned for cash. She bought Marley for $200 and quickly took the dog to the veterinarian that treats her own dogs.

In the meantime, other bystanders called the cops, who soon collared the alleged dognapper Brad Bacon, 29. Bacon appears to have been caught on video taking the dog on Monday.

He has not yet been arraigned. Authorities did not know if he had obtained a lawyer.

Cohen’s vet was able to track down Marley’s owner from a microchip implanted in the dog’s skin and with help from an animal rescue group that had learned about the stolen pup.

On Tuesday when Cohen watched Marley jump into Mia’s arms, she said: “You guys belong together. I’m so happy you are together.”

“That was the worst thing, there was a Grinch that was live and about in New York,” the girls’ mom said. “The Grinch didn’t win today.”

Some gifts end up under the tree whether you asked for them or not. A set of keys to the car you never even asked for. The gift certificate in your stocking that you overlooked when digging through your other toys. As a writer, and columnist one of the greatest gifts you can receive is a story that essentially writes itself. No major research, no background checks or emails to confirm with sources, just some good old fashioned facts to comment on. Consequently I have to tip my Christmas hat to Chad Ochocinco, formerly of Chad and Evelyn, for providing me with the easiest of stories: A Well Timed and Well placed Sex tape.

Black Sports Online.com and WorldStar Hip-Hop revealed last night that Chad Ochcocino has a sex tape. He and a thus far unnamed stripper are doing the deed in a set of scenes so well lit and filmed that you’d think Kim and Ray-J were behind the camera. Chad has already come out and said the tape was made 3 years ago, long before his now defunct marriage to Evelyn Lozada so it’s not like the tape reveals him to be anything other than a guy who likes sex with strippers. Unlike recent sex tapes that have come out, figuring out the timing and politics of this one is a bit harder. Chad is no longer in the NFL, Lozada is doing her Basketball Wives thing, and neither of them seems to have any major projects around the corner that would benefit from having a sex tape come out. So are we seeing a new era of sex tapes dawning? Are these tapes revealed now due to spite or revenge as opposed to clever marketing which has been the case for the last decade or so? Only time will tell, as Chad pursues legal action and the filmer as well as his sex partner have yet to be revealed. What we do know is this however, Chad has given writers a lot of free ink this afternoon, just in time for Christmas. Let’s just hope that as more is revealed about this story all of the ink ends up being worth it.

On Christmas Day, Andruw Jones was arrested near Atlanta. Allegedly, the former MLBer, who last played for the New York Yankees, was charged with assault and battery early this morning. However, the details of the incident have not been made public at this time.

Citing a Dec. 25 report from SBNation, Andruw Jones’ arrest details allege he was involved in a disturbance that resulted in the Gwinnett County police being called in the early morning hours of Christmas.

Obviously, the charges of assault and battery are serious and could land the former MLBer in some deep trouble, should he be formally charged and convicted.

Andruw Jones played for five teams during his 17-year professional baseball career, beginning with the Atlanta Braves in 1996 and ending with the Yankees in 2012.

The news that Jones recently signed a baseball contract overseas with Rakuten Eagles of Japan’s Pacific League, was announced just last week. Reportedly, the one-year-deal is worth $3.5 million.

While Jones didn’t re-sign with the Yankees, by all accounts he could still hold his game. Bear in mind that he is a five-time National-League All-Star and logged .254/.337/.486 batting stats. Not shabby for a man north of 34, right?

In 2005, he led the league with 51 home runs and hit another 41 in 2006. However, he has been in a slump over the years, leading many to believe he was down and out.

It’s unclear if Andruw Jones’ arrest could affect his ability to fulfill his contract overseas or have a negative impact on any plans he had in returning to the MLB.

from:  http://www.examiner.com/article/andruw-jones-arrested-allegedly-for-battery-near-atlanta

——————————————————————————————–

Andruw Jones was born on April 23rd, 1977 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andruw_Jones

April 23rd, 1977

4 + 23 +1+9+7+7 = 51 = his life lesson = Obey the law.  Anything he says or does can and will be used against him in a court of law.
