People are willing to rent a trailer for the Super Bowl! LOL!


People are willing to rent apartments, homes, and anything that has a roof over it, including renting trailers, too. This mansion which took 6 years to build for Guy Mascolo of Tony & Guy, who died in 2009. You will get to stay five full nights, or you can get a package that includes 18 Super Bowl game tickets, a personal chef, host a cocktail reception, a jet from Lear Jet to Dallas, throw a pre-Super Bowl Party, and use a Ferrari and more...

Now, all this for $300,000 for five nights, or you can have the house for $100,000. Even if the cost was divided by 18 people there still would be a $16,000 tab each. They say celebrities have looked into this. Most people consider this a deal what do yoooooooouuuuuuu think?

Teen Pregnancy a Trend! Huh? Really?

Okay! I can understand if someone makes a mistake and people need to go to their parents and tell them what's going on. But how would one be able to go to their parents and say I did on purpose. Like a practical joke among your friends.

Well in Shelby County, Memphis, Tennessee where the population is the majority African-American and poor. In the city of Frayser whether it be middle or high school they has more teenage pregnancies than graduation. Try 90 girls who either are have babies already or have some on the way.

Terrika Sutton, 16 years old, has a two month year old child and talks the news and she explains:

“They were like, ‘Terrika, I never knew you would get pregnant,’ and I was like well it happened.”
The young mother goes onto say, though, that teen pregnancy is nothing to be proud of and that something should be done:
“It’s a shame that all these girls at Frayser are pregnant, but it ain’t nothing new. They probably planned on what they gonna do to get pregnant. Ain’t no telling. They need a class where they can teach girls before they get pregnant to use protection and stuff and so they don’t try to get pregnant.”
Last year, more than 2,100 girls ages 10 to 19 gave birth in Shelby County.  Frayser has the highest teen-pregnancy rate in all of Memphis.
An all-out campaign is being launched to deter teen pregnancy at the school…

Educators and researchers have come up with a new campaign that has been designed to help teens prevent pregnancy called “No Baby!”

Memphis City School officials will set the initiative in motion on Jan. 20. The campaign will be run by Girls Inc., an organization that’s been helping girls in Memphis improve their self-esteem for the past several decades.

The “No Baby!” all-out massive effort to stomp out teen pregnancy will hopefully get the message across to teens to say no to having sex and having babies. “No Baby!” will only encourage abstinence and not provide contraceptives but will give teens the proper tools on how to protect themselves should they decide to engage in sexual relations.

The war against teenage pregnancy is also being infused with $250,000 in advertising that will saturate all forms of social media forums such as Twitter and Facebook, as well as using other mediums, such as texts, radio, billboards and television.

The advertising campaign’s rollout will begin with Frayser, but it will expand to include other schools in Memphis where the teen pregnancy problem is rampant. In 10 Memphis zip codes, at least 20 percent of teens have a baby, which is more than double the national average.

My question is… what took them so long? The so-called “campaign” should have been launched when the number hit 10… or how about 5! Apparently these youngsters have no clue about birth control… and sometimes that has to start at home.

Anyway, this is a sad situation and not necessary.

MLK-A Way from Home

Martin Luther King, a teenage kid nicknamed Tweed, went way north to Connecticut for the summer to earn money of $4 day for college working on a tobacco farm.

According to a researchers of students from Simsbury High School and a professor from Stanford University. King could have been a lawyer, a baseball player, but decided to be a civil rights movement leader after being nominated by Morehouse College students to be a minister.

His birthday is observed every Monday as a federal holiday, spent his time in the tobacco field outside of Hartford a suburb of Simsbury.

His son MLK III says according to Yahoo news,
Martin Luther King III, president and chief executive officer of The King Center, was to deliver the keynote address at the annual holiday observance, held at Ebenezer Baptist Church, where his father preached from 1960 until his death in 1968.
He has linked the holiday honoring the winner of the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize winner to the shootings in Tucson, Ariz., which left six dead and Giffords fighting for her life.
King would have been 82 on Jan. 15. Members of the King family also planned to lay a wreath at the tombs of Martin Luther King Jr. and his widow, Coretta Scott King.
King is the only American who was not a U.S. president to have a federal holiday named in his honor. He has been recognized on the third Monday in January since 1986.
He wrote a week earlier of going to the same church in Simsbury as white people. His new calling as a religious leader was emerging, too.
"I have to speak on some text every Sunday to 107 boys. We really have good meetings," he wrote.
William Duschaneck, an 88-year-old Simsbury resident interviewed by the students, said he played baseball with King in town. King was a strong pitcher, though the future preacher of nonviolence never drilled a batter, he said.
"He was a good ballplayer. He beat us a couple times," Duschanek told The Associated Press, laughing. "It was interesting to hear him talk. He had a nice voice. He talked about God and so forth."
King described the work on the tobacco farm as easy.
"I have a job in the kitchen so I get better food than any of the boys and more. I get as much as I want," he wrote to his mother.

Changed his life. Who knew that he would become great after having high level of resentment towards segregation.

"It's clear that this little town, it made a huge impact on his life," said John Conard-Malley, a Simsbury High School senior who did a documentary with other students on King's experiences in Connecticut. "It's possibly the biggest thing, one of the most important things, people don't know about Martin Luther King's life."
Until then, King was thinking of other professions such as becoming a lawyer, Conard-Malley said. But after his fellow Morehouse College students at the tobacco farm elected him their religious leader, he decided to become a minister.
In his later application to Crozer Theological Seminary King wrote that he made the decision that summer "when I felt an inescapable urge to serve society. In short, I felt a sense of responsibility which I could not escape."
"Perhaps if he hadn't come to Connecticut, hadn't picked tobacco up here, hadn't felt like a free person, hadn't felt what life was like without segregation and been elected the religious minister, he may not have become such a leader in the civil rights movement," Conard-Malley said.
Nicole Byer, a junior at Simsbury High School who narrates the documentary, noted that King was roughly the same age as the students who produced the documentary. Such early experiences can have a profound influence on young people, she said.

Kanye!!! Quit Raining On Our Parade

Kanye West can't stand it when someone else is at the top. So far, Britney Spears is number #1 on iTunes with her hit " Hold It Against Me". We all know that, Jay-Z and Kanye has a song together called "I'mma Let You Finish", but still. You wonder if this is just another publicity stunt. Kanye Tweets, "Yo Britney, I'm really happy for you and I'mma let you be #1, but me and Jay-Z single is one of the best songs of all time! LOL," the controversial rapper wrote on his Twitter page. Of course, this divides both fans!!!!! UUGHH! Dumb move your losing your own audience!!!

8 hours of GLEE? GREAT!!!!! ...... NO !


January, 8,2011  My Mom went out to audition for the show " Glee " along with the other 2,000 Glee fans out there in America coming to Dallas, Tx  to land on the Popular Show and she made made it to the 2nd round , but the only reason why she didn't make it to the 3rd round was because of her age and she wasn't close to 18 yrs :( But I am sooo proud of her and they said they fell in love with her voice :)! While there my mom of course always on her duty decided to associate with the people standing in line waiting for there chance to go in and audition and she met a woman by the name of  Presley Kaylyn a.k.a Presley K   who spent the night outside the location at 7:30a.m friday up until January,8,2011 waiting to go inside ! She is a true die hard fan of Glee . Also there my mom met Kyle Byers and Sarah Morgan who have been there with her at 8:00 a.m . But the Biggest complaint that everybody couldn't stop talking about was that the Judges took a lunch break and that turned a amount of people  away , also people even younger than my mom couldn't go past a  round even though it said on the Glee website that you had to be of 18yrs and up . On the plus side MTV , Oxygen , and Different New Stations were there so that means fans  at least had there 15 mins of Fame while standing in line along with a surprise guest appearance  by Blaine Anderson one of cast members from the show . If you want to see pics please click on the title  at the top ! I'm your Host Appiah for Kidsntheknow thanks :)

Texas Arlington Lady Officer Served And Protected-SAD DAY


The City Of Arlington is proud today honoring someone that was so young, practically out of college, who just graduated from police officer training December 13th. On December 28th, Officer Jillian Michelle Smith, 24, was shot and killed trying to take a report of the domestic violence that took place at a southeast apartment complex Tuesday night. As Smith was trying to take the report she saw that the ex-boyfriend killed the ex-girlfriend and one other person inside of the apartment. 
Smith who went there without a partner was shot protecting the 11-year old of the ex-girlfriend Kimberly Deshay Carter. After that, the killer turned the gun on himself and he was dead by the time other police got there.

As for the 11-year old she escaped unharmed.

Police said Nettles was a registered sex offender in Arlington for an offense that occurred in Washington state. He had bonded out, and a court date was pending for that incident.
Source from WFAA Staff-
Smith was born in Arlington and first became interested in law in the sixth grade. She graduated from Seguin High School in 2005, and the University of Texas at Arlington in August 2009, with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminology.
She graduated from the Arlington Police Academy in February and completed her field training on December 13.
"Her family is very close. Her sister, Jessica, was her best friend," said Arlington police Chief  Dr. Theron Bowman.
"She was a great young lady and an excellent police officer," he added.
"The only reason she wanted to be a police officer — and the only reason she was at that house last night — was to help people," said Arlington Mayor Robert Cluck. "We feel like our hearts are broken. Our hearts go out to the family."
Smith is the eighth Arlington Police Officer to die in the line of duty and the second to die in the line of duty this year.

Donations for the family of Arlington police Officer Jillian Smith can be made through the Arlington Police Association. Checks should be made payable to "APA Foundation - Officer Jillian Smith," and can be mailed to:

Taylor Swift have to take off her clothes? Really?

Taylor Swift vs. Lady Gaga-Can one compare?

According to Women's Wear Daily reports the magazine publications, like Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Elle etc... Their best-selling issues for 2010 appeared when Lady Gaga graced the cover. I mean you've got Cosmo short for Cosmopolitan's April issue featured Gaga had sold $1.7 million copies to make it the best seller of the year. I mean Rolling Stone made $245,000 copies, almost Rolling Stone's average newsstand sales. Along with many other publications that Gaga on the cover. Which tells me that its not about just selling records and making being on the road for concerts. It's about having a look. 

Taylor is not selling her image in magazines. Ordinary people think it's okay to just look average but in the industry its a different world. And why would people settle for less. I agree, America has caught on. Not to say that, Taylor is not great because even I like her as best-selling artist with her dad supporting her by selling her T-Shirts at her concerts but its always gonna be that somebody that comes along sweeps everyone off their feet. No one is saying she should take off your clothes but think outside the box. I agree, America has caught on. Their tired of the same thing. Just spice it up sometimes you be surprised. I'm well known for always having my OWN trends and since of style. Take it from me change is good.
