Today I met 3 amazing young men(Jamal Williams, Terrence Shivers, & Quinten Williams), that’s out here trying to better themselves, not be in the street or behind bars. They drove from Atlanta just to met me and when i say i felt so honored and blessed just to be in their presence, I know more than they were to be in mines. One of the young men just gave his life to christ sunday and when he told me, chills just went all through me because you don’t often here of 20 and 21 yr old young men doing that these days. What really stood out to me the most was they quit their jobs and move from Cleveland, Ohio to Atlanta, Ga on HOPE, A DREAM & FAITH!! I was so in shocked but it touched my heart to see them be so excited and in tune with who they were and what they want. I can’t express enough of how they love music and most of their own. When you REALLY love what you do, you will sacrifice, do without, and move in a way that no one would ever understand but it’s really not meant to be understood by everyone. These young men out here putting in work, getting scammed by people, etc but they refuse to give up. I asked “Why go so hard for this music that you putting out?” They told me “Well if you don’t believe in yourself or what you do, who will!” I couldn’t have said it better myself. “1 life” has so many meanings that I could go on and on about, but the name actually speaks volumes for itself. You only get “1” so you better make the best of the one you have, cuz when this one is over you can’t get a repeat!! Check out these young men song, watch they videos on YouTube and give them some love, I promise you won’t regret it. My Thoughts Of The Day

FIFA president Sepp Blatter has promised to kick corrupt officials ‘out of the game’ after U.S. prosecutors today laid bare widespread allegations of rampant corruption at football’s governing body.
Blatter described it as a ‘difficult time for football’ after officials today lined up to detail a case in which they claim to have exposed complex money-laundering schemes, found millions of dollars in untaxed incomes and tens of millions in offshore accounts held by FIFA officials.
In a statement released this evening, Blatter said: ‘This is a difficult time for football, the fans and for FIFA as an organisation. We understand the disappointment that many have expressed and I know that the events of today will impact the way in which many people view us.
‘As unfortunate as these events are, it should be clear that we welcome the actions and the investigations by the U.S. and Swiss authorities and believe that it will help to reinforce measures that FIFA has already taken to root out any wrongdoing in football.
‘Let me be clear: such misconduct has no place in football and we will ensure that those who engage in it are put out of the game.
‘We will continue to work with the relevant authorities and we will work vigorously within FIFA in order to root out any misconduct, to regain your trust and ensure that football worldwide is free from wrongdoing.’
His comments came after U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch claimed that bribery and corruption had dogged football’s world governing body at the highest levels for at least 24 years.

Roberto Gómez Bolaños is a famous Mexican writer and actor known worldwide mainly for his characters “El Chavo del 8” and “El Chapulín Colorado.” He was born in Mexico City in 1929 and studied engineering but never worked in that field. He found his passion for writing screenplays and scripts for television and radio with his work being featured in shows like “Cómicos y Canciones” and “El Estudio De Pedro Vargas.” It was around this same time where he gained his nickname of “Chespirito” when director Agustín P. Delgado said he was a “Little Shakespeare” or “Shakespearito.” In 1968 he signed a contract with Televisión Independiente de México where he was given a Saturday afternoon timeslot to expose his talent in sketches and comedy. This timeframe proved to be so popular the network moved him to Monday night and the legend was born.
“El Chavo del 8” has been his most recognized character where he plays a homeless kid that lives in a barrel in the middle of an apartment complex. The white humor and the hilarious neighbors like La Chilindrina, Don Ramón, Doña Florinda, Quico, Jaimito El Cartero and La Bruja Del 71 are engraved not only in Mexican culture but throughout Latin America. The show ran for 25 years but reruns are continuously broadcasted with great ratings. In recent years and to revive the “El Chavo” legacy and animated series was created that proved to be successful and has subsequently spawned a line of toys and most recently a go-kart video game.
On May 19, 1975, Ricky Jackson was a 20-year-old ex-Marine who had recently received an honorable discharge for health reasons. His 17-year-old friend Ronnie Bridgeman worked at a restaurant while he trained to be a welder at a nearby trade school. The two spent that day playing pick-up basketball at a local playground and then a game of chess at the Bridgeman home while Ronnie’s brother Wiley was washing his car outside. Meanwhile, in another part of their home town, a white businessman was killed by unknown assailants.
Less than a week later, all three were under arrest for a murder that they did not commit. Ronnie was finally paroled in 2003. Ricky Jackson and Wiley Bridgeman, by contrast, were just released from prison on Friday. It took 39 years for the state of Ohio to discover that it had locked up three men for a crime they did not commit.
Ricky and Wiley most likely owe their freedom to a 2011 article published by the Cleveland Scene which laid out the weakness of the case against them. The men were convicted based on the testimony of a 13-year-old boy with poor eyesight and conflicting stories. The boy, now a grown man, later filed an affidavit admitting that he never saw the murder. He also claims that he was threatened by police into identifying Jackson as one of the murderers.
“The detective said that I was too young to go to jail,” the witness said, “but he would arrest my parents for perjury because I was backing out. My mom was sick at that time, and that really scared me. I didn’t want my parents to get in trouble over this.”
The three innocent men were originally sentenced to death. Their lives were saved by a 1978 Supreme Court decision striking down an Ohio law making the death penalty mandatory in many murder cases.
On Nov. 20, 1970, Jimmy Allen Williams picked up his friends in his new, bright-blue 1969 Camaro. It was a Friday night in Sayre, Okla., a town of fewer than 3,000 people on the old Route 66. He told his family he was heading to a high-school football game in nearby Elk City. The trio was last seen by friends at a bowling alley.
The beginning of the night could have been a John Cougar Mellencamp song. But how it ended was a mystery. The sleek muscle car carrying three teenagers simply vanished. Law enforcement officials stumbled on it last year — four decades later — while testing sonar equipment at Foss Lake, a recreation area about 20 miles on the other side of Elk City, where Williams told his family he was heading.
Last week, DNA testing confirmed suspicions the bodies were those of the missing teens: Williams, 16, Leah Gail Johnson, 18, and Thomas Michael Rios, 18, all of Sayre.
The mud-caked Camaro was submerged in just 12 feet of water, about 50 feet from the end of a boat ramp. It was found alongside a 1950s Chevrolet. Strangely, that car was connected with an earlier but supposedly unrelated missing persons case. It contained the bodies of Cleburn Hammack, 42, John Alva Porter, 69 and Nora Marie Duncan, 58, who disappeared in 1969 after they stopped to ask for help getting their car started. They were all from nearby towns.
The road that dead ends at the ramp intersects another road about 700 feet from the lake’s edge. To some, it seemed unlikely local kids would have turned off the main road and driven across a small parking lot into the lake.
The Cardinals received shocking news Sunday evening, learning Oscar Taveras was killed in a car crash in the Dominican Republic.
Details on the accident have yet to be released, but his death was confirmed around 7:30 PM. Taveras was scheduled to play winter ball in the Dominican Republic before returning to Jupiter, Florida for spring training where he was expected to compete for the starting spot in right field.
The Cardinals had expected the young talent to work on his defense and conditioning in the offseason, rounding out his game.
“I think he can be a star, and I think he showed some things all season long that proved that,” Mike Matheny said in a season wrap-up press conference on October 20.
Considered one of the top prospects in baseball, the left-handed outfielder had recently flashed his star potential when he tied Game 2 of the NLCS with a pinch-hit homer.
He was 22.
A Texas man who admitted to killing his mother and raping her corpse clowned around for jurors who are considering his sentence.
Kevin Davis pleaded guilty Monday to first-degree murder, just as his trial began.
Prosecutors played a videotaped confession Tuesday to jurors, who heard the 18-year-old admit he tried to strangle Kimberly Hill with the power cord from a video game console on March 27, but when she did not stop screaming, he struck his mother’s head repeatedly with a hammer.
Davis told investigators on the recording that he stuck his hand into the open wound and moved her brain around to make sure she was dead, reported KZTV-TV.
Then, Davis told investigators, he raped his mother’s dead body.
Guess I lost my virginity to a dead corpse,” Davis said.
Davis watched the video intently, and when it was over, he swiveled his chair to face the jury and smiled, reported the Corpus Christi Caller Times.
Davis told detectives he had long fantasized about killing his mother and sister, and he waited a while for his sister to return home before deciding to leave his family’s Corpus Christi apartment and move away.
“I had my fill of killing,” he said. “It seemed a little much.”
The rapper-turned-sports agent Jay Z is a boxing fan who’s occasionally slipped on the gloves as part of his fitness routine at Chelsea Piers.
Now the multi-tasking mogul is making a push into boxing on the corporate side with Roc Nation Sports, the agency he created, conceiving a boxing division and hiring longtime fight executive Dave Itskowitch to run it, according to ESPN.com.
The plan is to promote cards and also to turn boxers into celebrities, transforming them into cultural figures similar to the athletes the agency represents, such as Kevin Durant, CC Sabathia and Victor Cruz. The agency has yet to sign any fighters but has obtained licenses to promote in New York and Washington, D.C., the story said.
“This is an opportunity for us to change the game,” Michael Yormark, president and chief of branding and strategy for Roc Nation who is also the twin brother of Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark told ESPN. “Jay Z has an incredible passion for boxing. We want to take the platform we’ve created and bring that to the boxing industry. We want to bring more money and visibility to the sport and give the boxers opportunities outside the ring.”
