“Straight Outta Compton” ruled the box office for a second straight weekend, and there’s no competition in sight. The movie has earned more than $111 million in domestic box office and is closing in on “Eight Mile” (at $116 million, the highest grossing rap movie) and has a good chance to beat “Scary Movie” ($157 million) and become the highest grossing movie directed by an African American. has drawn fresh attention to Dr. Dre and his violence against women, even though “Straight Outta Compton” makes no mention of that part of his life or of a particularly ugly incident that happened at the height of the group’s fame. But the attempt to ignore the past and focus attention on the movie and on “Compton,” Dr. Dre’s first solo album in 15 years, has backfired. By the end of last week, Dr. Dre released a statement apologizing to “women I’ve hurt” without being more specific.

Dr. and one of the most influential music producers of his generation. He became a billionaire after the sale of his headphones brand, Beats By Dre, to Apple last year. He has worked with the biggest names in hip hop: Snoop Dogg, Tupac, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar and many others.

But Dr. Dre has a history of abusing women. In 1991, he severely beat Dee Barnes, the host of “Pump It Up!” a hip hop show on Fox, at a party in front of numerous witnesses. Times:

“He picked me up by my hair and my ear and smashed my face and body into the wall. . Next thing I know, I’m down on the ground and he’s kicking me in the ribs and stamping on my fingers. members, MC Ren and Easy E, said at the time that Barnes “deserved it” and “had it coming.” Dr. Dre said “it ain’t no big thing I just threw her through a door.”

One of Dr. Dre’s bodyguards reportedly prevented bystanders from intervening and helping Barnes. Dr. Dre pleaded no contest to misdemeanor battery and settled with Barnes out of court. As time went by, he began to deny that anything violent occurred, according to Gawker.

Dr. Dre repeatedly beat his former girlfriend,

singer Michel’le, and once punched a woman, rapper Tarrie B, after she recorded a track critical of him, the women told The New York Times. Michel’le, who has a son with Dr. Dre, has spoken publicly about his abuse in the past but hasn’t received much attention.

“”I’ve been talking about my abuse for many, many years, but it has not gotten any ears until now,” she said.

Michel’le told the Times Dr. Dre often hit her with a closed fist and left her with “black eyes, a cracked rib, and scars.”

In his statement, Dr. Dre appeared to blame alcohol and youth for his actions:

“Twenty five years ago I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life. However, none of this is an excuse for what I did. I’ve been married for 19 years and every day I’m working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way. I’m doing everything I can so I never resemble that man again.”

Apple, where Dr. Dre is a consultant, also issued a statement saying the company “believed in his sincerity” and “that he has changed.”

Dr. Dre is now 50 and was a producer of “Straight Outta Compton.” “Compton,” his new album, has been widely criticized for misogynistic lyrics. One track, “Medicine Man,” a collaboration with Eminem,

This summer, she found herself in the midst of a legal battle, following claims that she was allegedly blackmailed over nude photos of herself.

But ‘Snapchat queen’ YesJulz was spotted enjoying a relaxing break from the drama on Wednesday, when she enjoyed a relaxing break on the beach in sun kissed Miami.

The 27 year old social media star real nameJulieanna Goddard displayed her sensational curves in a skimpy pink bikini as she strolled along the golden sands before enthusiastically tucking into a burger once the hunger pangs set in.

In May, fitness model and reality star Hencha Voigt was ordered to hand over the password to the iPhone police believe was used in an alleged extortion case involving YesJulz, the Miami Herald reported.

Voigt, 29, and her alleged accomplice Wesley Victor, 34, were arrested in July 2016 for allegedly threatening to leak nude photos of the Snapchat celebrity, unless she paid them $18,000.

Voigt appeared last autumn on a season of E!’s Miami WAGS, a reality show about the wives and girlfriends of sports stars.

Case: In May, fitness model and reality star Hencha Voigt was ordered to hand over the password to the iPhone police believe was used in an alleged extortion case involving YesJulz

Police said Voigt sent several of Goddard’s leaked X rated photos to the Snapchat star’s assistant as proof and gave her 24 hours to pay up the ransom.

Goddard is said to have contacted police about the plot and organised a fake meet up on July 21 with Voigt and Victor.

Police officers found Voigt, 26, and Victor, 33, sitting in a car on Miami Beach waiting for the meeting as well as the phone used to allegedly threaten Goddard.

After the pair’s arrests, Goddard’s nude videos were leaked online.

In her defence, Voigt claimed that she reached out to Goddard as a friend because she, too, had once had explicit videos of herself released online without her consent.

YesJulz has been very vocal about the case against her accused blackmailers on social media, tweeting to her followers earlier this year: ‘I’m not stopping until these two end up in jail.’

She added in another message, ‘Law should be if u commit a crime with your cell phone, you lose your right 2privacy on that device. She is also the founder of an all female creative agency, with clients including Vevo and Puma.

beats earbud headphones ‘Shoebox’ house in Wheatley can be yours for

Property developer Mr Keely was initially only granted permission to build a bike shed, with South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC) making clear that the building could not be used as a residence.

SODC rejected two further applications to convert the building into a house, saying that it was not in keeping with the Wheatley conservation area.

However, Mr Keely, who runs Keely Construction, appealed to the government’s Planning Inspectorate, which overturned the decision and even ordered the council to pay him compensation.

SODC declined to comment on the compensation paid to Mr Keely, but spokesman Gavin Walton said: “We and members of the community believe that this proposal is out of keeping with the surrounding High Street area.

He told the Oxford Mail: “I understand that Tess has been sad, and that makes me sad. I didn’t [name it the Shoebox] to taunt her, and I have no negative feelings in the slightest.”

Mrs Harris, who lives the house with her son, told the Oxford Mail she was shocked to see what looked like a house being erected where permission had only been granted for a bike shed.

She said that application had never described the proposal as a ‘two storey’ building, and the drawings submitted had been inaccurate.

Mrs Harris suggested that Mr Keely had been building a house, not a bike shed, all along.

However, the developer insisted the building adheres to all the original specifications.

Despite her anger at the situation, Mr Keely’s neighbour said she was ultimately concerned with the bigger picture.

She added: “We can’t live in a world where building developers can override council policies with the view that they’re doing society a favour by providing cheap housing.”

beats headphones best buy ‘Shattered’ Porel beats the odds to make the U

Ishan Porel’s Under 19 World Cup was nearly over even before he realised he was playing in one. In India’s tournament opener, against Australia, he landed awkwardly in his followthrough and hobbled off after bowling just 4.1 overs. For the next 12 hours, he’d be extremely anxious. The extent of injury would be known only in the morning, after which a call was to be taken on his immediate future. Just one thought kept replaying in his mind: ‘Would I fly home or would I stay back and train with the squad in the hope of being ready for the second half of the tournament?’

Three weeks on, after picking up a four wicket haul against Pakistan to bowl India into the final, a much calmer Porel looked back at the night of January 13. He is training hard for the final and should make the XI. When he does, it will be one of the biggest moments in his career, as in the case of all his team mates.

“I was shattered,” Porel said of the injury. “The doctor had a knock over my feet and it pained horribly just by touching it. I thought all my hard work will go waste. I felt my World Cup was over. But Rahul Dravid sir and others are very experienced and know how to handle the situation. They didn’t talk much about the injury, and tried to deviate my mind.

“Paras Mhambrey sir (bowling coach) gave me examples from his Ranji days, how a piece of glass from the window pane fell on his feet and resulted in a ligament tear in the middle of a first class season. I was hurting, because I had prepared so much for this World Cup and got injured in the very first game. Two three days later, I gained my confidence. It was tough, I wasn’t feeling good, but slowly gained it back. My mom started crying [over the phone]. There’s a corner in the dressing room where I sat and cried for two hours. Alone. Nobody saw me.”

It needed immense dedication from Anand Date, the strength and conditioning trainer, who put him through the paces and keep a watch on him every day for the next week or so, to bring Porel back to his cheerful best. At training, Porel was carefully monitored, but it was dealing with his emotions off the field that proved to be a challenge. Date, however, had seen it all.

When Date first came across Porel, at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) four years ago, Porel was puny, weighing just 58 kgs, seven less than the prescribed weight for a bowler of his height six feet and three inches. Over time, the two have developed a strong working relationship, with each trusting the other wholeheartedly. This trust has been key to Porel returning every time he’s suffered injuries.

“Anand sir has been all through my career, from first NCA camp to now,” Porel, who made his Ranji Trophy debut for Bengal earlier this season, said. “He helped me a lot, how to lift weights and all. Only then I took it seriously. Himanshu Rana was there in the first camp with me. He says even now, ‘what change in this guy’! When I think back to those days, where I am now,
best beat by dre headphones 'Shattered' Porel beats the odds to make the U
I’ve improved tremendously in terms of fitness, bowling, confidence, fielding and everything.”

It’s this first NCA stint that Porel looks back on fondly as he traces his short journey as a cricketer so far. “When I first went there, I wasn’t very fit,” he said. “I was different from the other guys. I was only 14 when I got my Under 16 NCA call. Others were fitter, stronger and used to hit me all over the park. I also kept bowling here and there.”

Then, during an Under 16 tour of Bangladesh, everything changed, so much that he even received an offer to play for them. “There, I got to know what I wanted to do with life and how to progress,” he said. “That tour, I did really well. I played with a lot of the current Bangladesh Under 19 players back then. They gave me a compliment, which I still remember: ‘why don’t you come to Bangladesh and play for us?’ I didn’t think about that offer.”

Over the last four years, Porel has already suffered multiple injuries: side strain, medial collateral ligament injury , anterior cruciate ligament injury, and partial tear on his left knee while fielding at an Under 16 game. While he has emerged fitter after each injury, there have always been nagging worries about recurrence. It wasn’t too different when he returned for the quarter final against Bangladesh. “I started with some pain, and it took a while for me to get into bowling rhythm. Once I was in the flow, it worked well and I started feeling good.”

Porel seems a natural fast bowler, not just in the way he bowls and generates bounce, but also in the number of injuries he’s suffered. However, cricket wasn’t his first fancy. Coming from a family that played Kabaddi his grandfather played for the country in the 1950s and his father was a state level player he naturally started playing it, only to realise he wasn’t cut out for it, and turned to cricket.

“Initially, my parents would ask ‘you quit other sports, what’s the guarantee you won’t quit cricket?’ I’d say no, cricket is my dream. It’s different. Then I started going to coaching camps in Chandan Nagar. Then again, I got bored and my family taunted me saying they knew I’d quit. That motivated me.

“Then my club, Cricket Clinic, sent me to Kolkata (aged around 11 12). My coach there said I’m weak but I bowl well and will have a good future. I had trials and got selected for the Under 14 team. I started as a batsman. Then, in the club, they made me a fast bowler because of my height. I used to have a wrong footed action like Sohail Tanvir and had to change it. It took me a week to change the action, and I had to keep working on it. Then I played in Bangalore in an Under 14 team, where I performed well. That’s when I started getting more interested in cricket.”

Whether it was his family’s taunts or the several injuries that strengthened his resolve to become a better cricketer, he isn’t quite sure. What Porel is thankful about is the experiences he has had in his nascent career so far,
best beat by dre headphones 'Shattered' Porel beats the odds to make the U
ones that he wouldn’t trade for anything because of the life lessons he has learnt. An Under 19 World Cup medal on Saturday will make all the pain and sacrifices more than worth it.

He returned to his family home in California’sKinland Forest with his late wife, Bobbie,until his deathfrom what his family described as natural causes.

“His wisdom is what I will miss the most,” said his daughter, Lisa VanHoven of Grand Rapids. “You could talk to him about everything. He was very wise.

“There is so much about him,” she said. “I would tell people about my dad and they would say you are making it up, that no one was all that, but he was.”

Her husband, Chris VanHoven, described his father in law as brilliant.

“He was learned and well traveled and he could speak on many, many subjects with knowledge. He had been to most places you would talk about and he could bend your ear in many ways.

“He loved conversation,” said Chris VanHoven. Navy.

“I have great memories of his part in the life of Battle Creek and the history of the foundation,” Mawby said Thursday. “He really knew what was going on in education throughout the United States and in the rest of the world. He was engaged in humanity and shared his interest in science and his interest in enlarging the perspective of all of us.”

Mawby called Kinsinger an internationalist who traveled extensively while maintaining his concentration on happenings in the United States.

In Battle Creek Kinsinger was most visible when he was in the air after beginning his love affair with flying balloons.

He remembers Kinsinger “as a good solid pilot who had a long and happy career flying balloons.”

He flew in more than 30 countries and over the Arctic, the Great Wall of China, and the volcano,Mount Pinatuboin the Philippines.

His balloon, Bob’s Cat, had a lions head on the envelope chosen because his astrological sign isLeo the Lion and the design was from a medallion he gave his wife, he told the Enquirer in 2007.

His grandson, Justin Kinsinger, who flies balloons in the Napa Valley in California, has the same design on his balloon envelope.

A replica of the balloon is in the children’s garden at Leila Arboretum in Battle Creek. “It’s such an exhilarating experience that you can’t get any other way. You go low and slow so you can see much more wildlife and scenery.”

And Kinsinger said ballooning was a great way to make new friends.

“It’s a great way to meet locals,” he told the magazine. “People are always so excited to see you and so curious to see the balloon up close.”

As NFL players, all are permitted to have endorsement contracts with Beats and other companies that aren’t league sponsors, but the league has cracked down on players in the past for wearing the competition’s headphones.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has an endorsement deal with Beats, said he was fined $10,000 by the NFL for wearing a pink pair for breast cancer awareness at a press conference in October. He covered the logo up with tape at a later appearance.

Brian McCarthy, an NFL spokesman, said the league’s restriction on public display of Beats or the items of other non sponsors applies only to post game interviews.

“Players are aware of the policy. It’s reiterated throughout the year, at the beginning of the season, and that’s nothing new,” he said.

Beats by Dre was acquired by Apple Inc. last year. A month later, the NFL reached the agreement with Bose to become the league’s official headphones.

History while playing poker at Motor City Casino on Tuesday.(Photo: Provided)

What happens when you have a once in a lifetime experience twice in one night?

Well, if you are Battle Creek’s Kenny Tallent, you become $213,712 richer and you have a story to tell that many people would take bets on, saying it can’t be true.

Tallent was on his way to Detroit to play poker at the Motor City Casino. Driving on I 94, past FireKeepers Casino near Battle Creek, Tallent saw a flash in the sky that “made his heart drop.” By the time he reached Detroit, he had learned from friends and news reports that he had seen the meteor that fell in Michigan last Tuesday obviously, an experience he had never had before.

“I remember thinking, what are the odds of that. Maybe it would be good luck,” Tallent said.

Little did he knowthat he was about to beat the odds again.

Playing Texas Hold ’em poker, Tallent came up with four queens. His four of a kind was good enough to beat a similar hand at the table as a man from Oxford, Michigan,had four 3s.

One four of a kind beating another four of a kindis known as a bad beat in poker rooms. Atthe Motor City Casino, the loser in that scenario actually turns out to be a winner by getting the ‘bad beat’ jackpot. The jackpot, which comes from money pulled from every hand of poker played at the casino,had grown to a record $1,068,590.80. History while playing poker at Motor City Casino. history. The player with the losing hand in the bad beat gets 40 percent of the jackpot $427,452.52.

“That kind of bad beat, with the kind of jackpot they have at Motor City, is kind of rare. I guess I hope it’s not a once in a lifetime thingbecause I’d love to have it happen to me again, but it is rare,” Tallent said. “Seeing a meteor is pretty rare, too, I would think. Actually, playing as much poker as I do, I guess seeing a meteor is probably more rare.”

Tallent, a 2007 graduate of Lakeview High School anda tables dealer at FireKeepers Casino, was actually going to the Motor City Casino because of the outside chance of something like this happening.

“The news of that bad beat jackpot was getting so high, it was drawing a lot of players. There has been a lot of money in the poker room there lately because of that. Plus, it’s probably the best poker room in the state. They take really good care of their players there,” Tallent said. “But I never thought, in a million years, I would be a part of it. Still can’t believe it.”

Tallent hopes to take part of his winnings and play in the World Series of Poker this year in Las Vegas, “always watched it on TV and it has always been a dream of mine,”he said.

As for the actual hand, Tallent won that with the four queens, but the pot was much smaller than the bad beat jackpot, “I won the pot, but I guess I wished I was the one losing this timebecause the guywith four 3’s took home more money with the jackpot. But I’m not complaining,” he said.

Tallent had pocket queens and the flop came up 3 3 queen, so he already knew he had a good hand with afull house. When the fourth queen came on the turn, he knew, mathematically, he had the best hand.

“It never even crossed mymind that he could have four of a kind. But then I went all in and when he called my all in so quickly, I figured out he might also have four of a kind,” Tallent said. “We then looked at each other and I said, ‘you got it?”’ and he said, ‘you got it?’ and we both said yes. We realized what had happened and we all just started jumping up and down. Everybody in the poker room figured out what had happened and gathered around, there was this buzz everywhere.

PETOSKEY Breslin was calling. Manton answered.

With a shoulder shimmy on the left wing, an explosive drive to the elbow and a picture perfect pull up jumper over the defense, Jayden Perry hit the game winning shot in overtime to beat Negaunne 51 49 and send the Rangers to the Class C state semifinals and Michigan State’s Breslin Center.

“I like taking jump shots. That’s my shot, and I practice that all the time,” Perry said. “I knew as soon as I jumped. I knew it was going in. I could feel it.”

Manton head coach Ryan Hiller said Perry’s shot embodies the work the junior has put in since his freshman year when he had the ball in his hands during the closing moments of a loss to rival McBain.

“It was emotional for him, but he built on that,” Hill said. “I knew Perry was taking the (winning) shot. He works so hard. He’s the hardest worker out of anybody I’ve ever coached.”

Manton’s student section the Ranger Rowdies roared, Hiller led the charge off the Manton Bench to celebrate the shot and teammate Hunter Ruell lifted Perry off the floor.

Only the game wasn’t over.

Officials ruled Negaunee had called a timeout immediately following the basket and placed two seconds back on the clock, which had erroneously expired amid the celebration.

Manton remained calm through a series of consecutive timeouts by both teams and forced a heavily contested last second shot for Negaunee that failed to hit rim.

“Everyone was jumping around and we were all happy,” Perry said. “They put the two seconds back on, and I thought we did a great job regrouping and finishing it out.”

Manton’s victory marks the Rangers’ first trip to the state semifinal round since 1996, when the Rangers led by then player Ryan Hiller reached the state championship game.

Hiller said reaching the Breslin Center as a coach tops his visit as a player.

“It’s more gratifying,

” he said. “I have fond memories, but you don’t realize how much work you put in as a coach. Hours and hours and hours of preparing and all the decision making.”

Perhaps one of the biggest decisions of Tuesday’s game came in the closing seconds of regulation. Negaunee had the ball with 25.5 seconds remaining and the score tied at 42. The Miners were going to hold the ball for the last shot, but Hiller decided to have him team trap the ball handler. The move paid off as the Rangers forced a turnover and wound up with the final chance to win the game in regulation.

Hiller knew it was a gutsy decision because of what might happen if the trap didn’t work an easy Miner basket and a loss.

“You don’t want to let down your community,” he said. “You don’t want to let down your kids. They trust you.”

Manton got off to a quick start in overtime with a 3 pointer by Trever Salani on the Rangers’ first possession. The lead held until Negaunee’s Dre Tuominen made a twisting layup he shot facing away from the basket to tie the game at 49.

Perry’s winner made the tremendous bucket moot.

“I’m having trouble with words,” Salani said after the game.

Ruell filled them in: “Best feeling ever.”

Ruell and Salani led the Rangers with 14 points apiece, while Perry scored 13. The trio were the only three players to score in the overtime session for Manton.

Treh Helsel added six points, and Darius Potter contributed solid production off the bench with four points.

The Rangers had yet another great night at the free throw line, converting 9 of 11 shots.

Manton practiced various zone defenses all week to try to stop Negaunee’s two headed monster of Tuominen and Trent Bell.

They played man to man exclusively after Jacob Ennett hit three three pointers in the second quarter.

“He was the guy we were gonna let beat us, and he was having a good night,” Hiller said. “You have to switch your game plan.”

Ennett finished with nine points, Tuominen scored 12 and Bell led all scorers with 22, including 10 of 11 at the charity stripe and several easy buckets via offensive rebounds.
