World News: Uganda Landslides Wreck Shop


The Associated Press reports...officials say landslides caused by torrential rains have destroyed three villages in eastern Uganda, killing few but injuring hundreds.

Disaster Preparedness Minister Stephen Mallinga, stated this morning that it was too early to provide an accurate count of those killed in the landslides. David Wakikona, a Bududa district lawmaker, described the situation as "terrible" and said hundreds were likely killed when mud flowed downhill Monday afternoon.
Wakikona said at least 300 people lived in the affected villages and that most people were indoors when massive blocks of mud and rocks began to roll down hills denuded of vegetation.

Landslides are a common occurrence in the hilly areas of eastern Uganda, but there has been local resistance to government efforts to relocate the most vulnerable people to a safer place.

Usher Holds Down #1 Spot

His 4th number 1...the irony is close to appalling. After a solid week on shelves, Usher's "Looking 4 Myself" made its way to the top of the Billboard 200...with (according to Neilsen SoundScan) 128k units moved. Not bad for 2012, right?

Ursher's - not a typo, but in my Ludacris voice - last studio album release, "Raymond v Raymond," (2010) also launched at No. 1. BIG Difference, it did 329,000 first week.

"Looking 4 Myself" also registers Usher's smallest first-week sales for a studio album since the 1997 and debut release "My Way," which opened with a whopping 67,000 units, 1st week.

A sign of the times, quality, or product???

#Lakers PG Ramon Sessions Will Become Free Agent

Los Angeles Lakers point guard Ramon Sessions, decided to decline his player option to return for the 2012-2013 NBA Season. This means that he will become a free agent this summer. Sessions averaged 11.3 points and 5.5 assists per game this season. Sessions was aquired in a mid season trade. He showed some bright spots during the season, but also struggled and times, and didn't come up big in the playoffs the way the Lakers hoped he would. Sources say the Lakers plan to make a major move to upgrade the point guard position for the upcoming season. Sessions would have been paid $4.5 million dollars for the upcoming season.

NBA Looks to Put an End to "Flopping" Next Season

NBA commisioner David Stern looks to put an end flopping. If you don't know what "flopping" is, you probably don't watch the NBA regularly. Flopping is an issue that is spreading around the NBA like a virus. Reminds me of virus that spread due to the little monkey in the movie "Outbreak". A flop is basically when a player "pretends" to be fouled and overreacts to contact made by an opposing player, in hopes to drawl a foul from the referee. In most cases a player will quickly fall to the ground, throwing his arms in the air, as if he was hit by a train.

Sometimes, players are actually effected by the contact made by players. But, in the midst of the fast paced NBA game, the flopping may confuse referees with actual fouls due to physical force.

Whether we like it or not, flopping is a part of the NBA game. And you actually can't be mad at players for using this technique to their advatage, especially if it will put their team in a better position to win. As a fan, it is very annoying to watch, especially when it doesn't go in your teams favor. When a player from an opposing team "flops", we as fans are furious. We tend to hate the referee, the player who flopped, and possibly the NBA as a whole until the anger dies down. But, when it is in our teams favor, its "a part of the game".

David Stern and the competition committee met Monday, to discuss possible solutions to this matter, along with other possible rule changes. Stern also discussed going back to game film, and penalizing players post-game. The same way adjustments can be made to flagrant fouls after the game. The competiton committee is made up of coaches Doc Rivers of Boston, Rick Carlisle of Dallas and Lionel Hollins of Memphis; owners Dan Gilbert of Cleveland and Joe Lacob of Golden State, and general managers Bryan Colangelo of Toronto, Sam Presti of Oklahoma City, Mitch Kupchak of the Lakers and Kevin O'Connor of Utah.

In order for the rules to change, the request must be accepted by the Board of Governors, which will meet in July.

2012 NBA Finals Game 2 [Highlights]


As the Miami Heat stepped onto the court Thursday night to overcome a game one defeat, LeBron James was focused and poised to even it up. With a phenomenal performance from D. Wade and MORE uncharacteristic contributions from Shane Battier (5-7 from beyond), the Miami Heat would go on to tie the 2012 NBA Finals at one game a piece.

NBA Veteran (at this point), Shane Battier has become the ultimate ex-factor the Miami Heat. He is shooting lights out through the first 2 games on the road. His home court 3-point shooting percentage is 42%, we should expect his to hover around that shooting percentage all series, if the Thunder don't make some adjustments defensively.

The defense by the 305 was amazing last night. They swarmed the ball and got out to a dominating 16 - 2 start. It wasn't until James Harden (who finished with 21 points on 7-11 shooting, and 4 rebounds) checked in for OKC where the Thunder got some offensive life. Kevin Durant finished with 32 points as did LeBron James. Wade ended the game with 24, as Russell Westbrook (although he shot horribly, 10-26) finished with 27 points, 7 assists and 8 rebounds.

2012 NBA Finals: Game 1 [Highlights + Recap]

For the record, I like Oklahoma City in this year's NBA Finals match up. Russell Westbrook went off for 27 points, 11 assists and 8 rebounds. The Miami Heat's LeBron James did have a Finals personal best with a 30 point and 9 rebound performance.

Kevin Durant scorched for a 36 point game with 17 of those coming in the 4th quarter. Crunch time. For those interested, this is the same all-important quarter where LeBron James has a tendency to disappear, and commit game changing mishaps. Life suck like that sometimes though.

Key notes:

- James Harden scored 5 points in a mere 22 minutes
- Serge Ibaka had ZERO blocked shots
- Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook outscored the entire Miami Heat in the second half 41 - 40
- Shane Battier scored 17 points in 41 minutes of play, shot 4-6 from beyond the arc
- Mario Chalmers also showed up, scoring 12 points in 35 minutes of action
- In 33 minutes, Chris Bosh shot 4-11 and scored 10 points
