Kodak Black sentenced to nearly 4 years in prison

“Young people do stupid things, but the problem is that you’ve been doing stupid things since you were 15,” said U.S. District Court Judge Federico Moreno while sentencing Kodak Black this morning on his federal weapons case that took place in South Florida.

The rapper was looking at a maximum of a 10 yr sentence after pleading guilty to pleaded guilty to two counts of knowingly making a false and fictitious written statement in connection with the acquisition and attempted acquisition of a firearm from a federally licensed firearms dealer.

As you remember, back in May, Kodak was arrested by U.S. Marshals just before his performance at Rolling Loud which was taking place in Miami Gardens.

This isn’t the end of Kodak Black’s legal troubles. He still has a criminal sexual misconduct case in South Carolina for sexual assault of a high school student back in 2016.

Nelly Pulled Off Stage by Eager Fan During Performance

During this past weekend, while performing at the Agua Caliente Resort Casino Spa Rancho Mirage, Nelly was doing what he normally does during his sets…getting close and interacting with his fans. On this occasion, one fan wanted to get a little closer to the star.

This fan subsequently grabbed Nelly by the arm and pulled him towards her off the stage…to his and many others surprise as shown by the footage from TMZ.

Eventually Nelly did get back on stage and before he continued his performance he told the fan ” “You can’t pull me, shorty,” he said. “I appreciate it — but I’m on the edge of the stage. If you pull me, I ain’t got nowhere to go!” He also allowed the fan to stay until the end of the set which was an absolute surprise to me and others.

Were you aware of an E. Coli outbreak linked to romaine this summer? No? Neither did we…

On October 31, 2019, the FDA disclosed to the public that there was a recent outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 which could be traced back to contaminated romaine lettuce. This outbreak took place from July 12, 2019 to September 8, 2019 and infected 23 people across 12 states. What’s interesting about this is that the FDA waited approximately 6 weeks to inform the public. Now, we all remember what took place last year when a similar outbreak went across 36 states. This resulted in 210 total reported illnesses, 96 hospitalizations, and 5 deaths. According to the FDA, the reason why they didn’t immediately inform the public of this latest outbreak was because “when romaine lettuce was identified as the likely source of the outbreak, the available data at the time indicated that the outbreak was not ongoing and romaine lettuce eaten by sick people was past its shelf life and no longer available for sale.” This is all well in good in theory, but my question to the FDA and CDC is shouldn’t we as the consumer be given the information when known and then have the ability to choose whether to buy the product even if these organizations feel there is little to no risk?
