Former District Attorney Agreed Not To Use Deposition By Bill Cosby

A former district attorney claimed in an email to his successor that his office agreed more than a decade ago to not use a civil deposition given by Bill Cosby in any criminal matter — a revelation that could call into question the viability of the criminal case against the comedian.

Cosby faces three felony charges of aggravated indecent assault for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand when she visited his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.

She was the first of at least 50 women who have come forward to publicly accuse Cosby of assaulting them over four decades.

Taylor Swift: Pay Me For My Music, Apple

Recently, Taylor Swift spoke out about Spotify economics. Now, she has slammed Apple over its decision not to pay musicians during a trial period for its new music service.

The music powerhouse has announced that she won’t allow her latest album, “1989,” to be included in Apple Inc.’s new music-streaming service, in a protest over royalties. Swift says Apple is acting greedy despite being one of the richest companies ever, and Taylor Swift is angry. When the Apple Music streaming service launches June 30th, users will get a three-month free trial.

Taylor Swift gets support from music superstars after writing open letter to Apple where she sad it was “shocking” that her music was to be given away for free as she pulls album from new music service.

The Apple tech giant is about to launch a new music subscription service, Apple Music on June 30, and to get folks to try it out, Apple will offer free three-month trial subscriptions.

This is usually what happens with large companies, they start attempting to railroad everyone just so they are able to do what they want, which is probably to sell more electronics rather than to help who they are using such as Taylor Swift and other great artists.

Scott Baio & Family Brace For Brain Tumor Treatment

Hollywood, California – Scott Baio, the well celebrity known as Chachi in Happy Days and his wife Renee are bracing for what is to come following her diagnosis with a brain tumor.

Baio who is now 54 and Renee Baio who is 46, posted on Facebook an explanation and a public statement about his serious condition on June 16, a meningioma brain tumor which doctors have not yet determined to be cancerous or not.

“Just a few days ago we learned my wife, Renee, has a meningioma brain tumor,” the 54-year-old star shared. “Although 90% of these type of tumors are benign they can cause serious problems depending on the size of the tumor and the location. We are waiting to learn the exact location to see if its operable,” he explained.

Baio praised his wife’s positive attitude saying, “Renee has been down some rough roads in her life,” he continued. “Yet each time with her strong faith in God, she comes through a better and stronger person. During this time we ask for your prayers and support. My wife is my rock. She refuses to even shed one tear, nor will she question God’s will. Renee, Bailey and I will get through this.”

He then explained how they want to help educate people on these health problems and encourage them to get checked because “6,500 people each year, mostly women get these tumors.” he says. Baio added that he and his family hope their news will encourage others to see a doctor if they suspect something is amiss.

Renee told People magazine that she has been suffering from migraines and cluster headaches for almost two years and that doctors initially told her it was because she’s over 40 and pre-menopausal. “Unfortunately, a lot of women are given this explanation and they need to get checked out,” she said. “An MRI did not pick up the tumor, but an MRI with contrast spotted it.”

Tommy Chong Uses “Even More” Marijuana After His Cancer Diagnosis

Hollywood, California – Comedian/Actor/Dancer Tommy Chong, infamous for his part in “Cheech and Chong,” in the 1970s, said Wednesday that he is treating his rectal cancer through the use of cannabis.

“I have good news and bad news. First the bad news, the cancer came back and it is a real pain in the butt,” he said on Twitter. “The good news is I now have to use more marijuana to treat the cancer.”

Chong, 77, said he would document his battle against the cancer on the “Chong and Chong” podcast.

“Please wish me luck while I kick cancer’s behind,” he added.

This is Chong’s second battle with cancer. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2012.

US Weekly reported that Chong has been a big advocate of marijuana, crediting it for his treatment process.

“I’m using cannabis like crazy now, more so than ever before,” he told US. “I’m in treatment now. I’ve been – just the case either way, either I get healed or I don’t. But either way, I’m going to make sure I get a little edge off or put up.”

Chong and Cheech Marin gained fame in 1971 for their comedy album “Cheech and Chong.” They became the faces of pot with their films “Up in Smoke” and “Nice Dreams.”

The duo broke up in the late 1980s and reunited decades later for a comedy tour called “Cheech & Chong: Light Up America.”

Cheech wants to use this down time to focus on writing a sequel to the 1978 hit Up in Smoke.

“It will be the same Cheech and Chong, just 40 years later.”

Cheech credits his wife for his tenacious spirit fighting against the disease.

“My wife actually forbid me to die,” he says of his wife Shelby Chong. “She said ‘you are not leaving me.’ “

Criminalization Of Drugs And Alcohol Addiction

In many place in the world, alcohol is given freely in casinos, parties and but not limited to hotels and is more or less forced on you either to make a person spend more money, to be a part of the party and but not limited to get a person to come back to that hotel.

Of course it is widely known that you shouldn’t walk the streets or drive a car while intoxicated. When alcohol enters a persons system, from that moment that person does not and under any amount of alcohol consumption will they think the same. Therefore that person is mentally impaired from the word go. The person that consumes the alcohol can not legally make a choice for themselves.

If a person that is intoxicated, that person can not enter into a legal agreement. When a person or company files a lawsuit on a person that was intoxicated while entering into the agreement the lawsuit will most likely be thrown out of court as the person that had been intoxicated could not in their right mind enter into a legal agreement. This has been shown in several courts.

When criminal institutions file criminal charges on a person for drugs and/or alcohol for being in any way intoxicated, drugs or alcohol, they are filing charges on a mentally ill person. In filing charges on a person that is intoxicated in any way, that person that is intoxicated can not in their right mind enter into a legal agreement. Criminal institutions in fact will make persons intoxicated sign legal documents while being that of the intoxicated.

There is a broad battle in America and abroad that are debating such things and they should be debated and resolved because there are millions of people in jails and prisons for having a harmless drink of alcohol and/or doing drugs when they should have been entered into a medical facility or just left alone. Drug runners, smugglers, and pushers and people that have committed murder or injury by driving drunk or under the influence of drugs however should be the only persons in jails and prisons.

It is well known that you can not treat and/or rehabilitate a person for drugs and alcohol by criminalizing them. Several countries have learned to lower their drug and alcohol usage in other ways besides criminalizing users of drugs and alcohol. These methods have been medical attention or the rise in the price of drugs and alcohol. The whole world has a drug and alcohol problem and no nation can afford to put every person that uses drugs and alcohol in jail or prison.

Today, a law has been passed in Russia to where if an individual is arrested for intoxication of any kind, they are to be taken to a hospital.

A Potentially Dangerous Episode Of Handy Manny

In the episode named “Pedal ‘n Tool Cock-a-doodle-doo” (episode #47) where Handy Manny helps a hot dog vendor with his cart and a rooster keeps the citizens up too early, there seems to be a quite dangerous action taken by one of the citizens.

At the begriming of the episode, the candy store owner is placing a barrel full of candy in front off his store. Then, after an exchange of words with Handy Manny, his tools and the store owner, the store owner jumps head first inside the barrel full of candy and get’s stuck inside. After that, the barrel became on it’s side where the store owner and the candy fell out.

The danger is that there are millions of viewers that just so happen to be below the age of 8 years. If any of these young children have an inclination that there might be candy in a barrel, bucket or anything else. These children would not know that the barrel, bucket or anything else that may hold water or a substance that might harm them is inside. They could just diver right in with candy on their minds.

There have not been any known incidents of death or injury because of this episode, but as a watchful guardian to several nieces and nephews, especially one of 14 months, I thought everyone might want to know what I saw. I have heard many times of children drowning from jumping inside buckets head first and did not approve of this and I thought that this episode had been a potentially dangerous episode of Handy Manny.
