This Lacey Schwimmer chick is kind of frightening me. Don’t get me wrong, if you’re into chicks who look like they may or may not have had male genitalia at some point than she’s hot, but otherwise she’s kinda scary. A little too man-ish for my taste. I know she’s not a man, don’t send me any emails, but this just isn’t working for me. If I was looking to get a co-ed football team together on the other hand, she’d probably be the first chick I’d call. I wouldn’t mind wrapping my face around those big old chesticles of hers. more pictures of Lacey Schwimmer here

Matt Damon brought his bald ass head to the Save Our Schools Million Teacher March in DC over the weekend and spit out a bunch of 80-point Scrabble words at a reporter who pretty much made it clear that she doesn’t think teachers should get tenure. Matt schooled her ass by saying that he’s an actor because he loves acting (Oh really , Matt’) and teachers are teachers because they love teaching.

Just a week on Earth and Lauryn Hill’s tiniest seed is already experiencing his first taste of celebrity life! According to BlackCelebKids.com : Proud sisters Selah, 12, and Sarah, 3, Marley hold on to their new baby brother! Singer Lauryn Hill welcomed her sixth child this past weekend(July 23rd, 2011). The baby, whose name has yet to be released, was born with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck. As of today, both mom and baby are in good health. Good to see everyone is doing okay. Congratulations to the Hill/Marley brood on their newest addition. Best of luck to this kid, who will likely have to deal with a lil bit of teasing over the whole “who is Lauryn’s baby daddy this time business”.
Over the past few weeks, we have been publishing Women In The World articles about the different characteristics embedded in our global order that affect women worldwide. One of the biggest problems that continues to keep women lower on the social ladder than the men is their lack of access to education. However, as Nicholas D. Kristof notes in his article entitled “ The Women’s Crusade, ” putting more of a focus on females when giving foreign aid will actually help fight global poverty, extremism, and global gender differences. Today, we want to give you a taste of a few foreign aid tactics that people have come up with to combat worldwide gender disparities. As noted in our piece entitled Women In The World: Why Is Female Labor Not Being Rewarded?, many societies find female labor to be less beneficial than male labor, limiting females’ access to jobs and payments. However, it has actually been proven that investing in education and supplies for females will actually yield positive return in the future. Micro financing is a type of service in which groups lend money or supplies to poorer people to help them start their own businesses. This is different from simply donating money to people because it is a loan that goes towards a specific plan for the future. The point is that women use loans from micro financing groups to purchase supplies for something that they are good at, such as felt and needles for embroidery. Women plan and execute a way to use their loan so that they can slowly pay their loan back as they simultaneously build a business that can last. With a negative stigma attached to them, women often find themselves living at the mercy of their male counterparts. In our piece entitled Women In The World: Why Are Brides Being Burned After Their Marriages? , we showed you how many women are murdered solely because of their gender and their place in society. Women have a separate set of expectations to live up to than men, and often find themselves in danger when they cannot provide what they are supposed to. When women are considered “lesser” than men, they do not have access to equal medical benefits , putting their health and lives at higher risk than men. Further, gender discrimination in third world countries allows for women to become sex slaves for their owners. As we discuss in Women In The World: Modern-Day Slavery & Human Trafficking , women are further hindered from achieving their full potential when they are stripped of their rights and dignity. Fortunately, like micro financing, programs have been set up to rescue women from these unfortunate circumstances. In addition to providing women with money, it has been proven that educating women around the world can lead to major changes in the global poverty realm. With education, women are able to earn money and become autonomous. They are able to pursue their own goals without worrying about their male counterparts. Statistics show that often, when poor families are run by men, the money is spend on products such as alcohol and prostitution. However, when women are in charge of the household finances, it has been shown that they spend the small amount of money that they have on nutrition and housing, which lays the pavement for a better future for the family. Overall, micro financing for women and educating women are key to benefiting women and the whole global order. By effectively equipping women with the tools and education necessary for being independent, it has been proven that women will contribute more to actually sustaining positive changes. Educating women and micro financing are unique because rather than just donating money to a developing country in general, it’s important to invest your money in objectives that will help the country grow in the future. Simply tossing in money to solve one problem does not help lay the foundation for improvement, rather it gets used for problems that need severe restructuring.

The plot thickens … This Robert Ross character who we previously told you tried selling Shaunie O’Neal sex tapes of Shaq making it with other women while they were married has filed a lawsuit against Shaquille claiming his “former friend” ordered him to kill three people, including a woman who Shaq knocked up then paid to have an abortion. He also says Shaq had him kidnapped but released him in exchange for the sex tape. According to TMZ reports : Shaq’s former pal Robert Ross — an ex-gang member — is suing O’Neal for allegedly masterminding a plot to have him kidnapped by other gang members back in 2008. In the documents, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Ross claims O’Neal organized and funded a series of murders and brutal attacks on people who did him wrong. In the suit, Ross alleges, “For many years O’Neal requested and directed [Ross] to perform many personal favors and directed him to perform various tasks including, but not limited to: ordering [Ross] to kill a member of the Downtown Gangster Crips who had disrespected O’Neal in front of his wife Shaunie.” O’Neal is also accused of issuing “an order to kill a woman whom O’Neal had impregnated and paid for her abortion” and “an order to kill a renown record producer.” Ross also alleges that O’Neal issued “an order to break an NBA player’s shooting arm.” Ross — who never says whether the alleged hits were carried out — is suing for unspecified damages. Shaq’s lawyer, Michael J. Kump, tells TMZ … “The outlandish claims by Robert Ross in his civil complaint are pure fiction. Shaquille O’Neal befriended Mr. Ross in an attempt to help turn his life around. Sadly, Mr. Ross abused that friendship again and again. Kump adds, “Shaquille’s commitment to law enforcement is well-known and documented. He will not dignify these defamanatory allegations with a response.” As we’ve said before, it all sounds hard to believe — but now we gotta wonder if “Shaq’s commitment to law enforcement” might have just been a good way to keep his a*s covered. After all those shady LAPD Ramparts officers had a “commitment to law enforcement” too… SMH! You’ve got to look at the documents below — in addition to his claim that Shaq asked him to break the shooting arm of another NBA player, there is even an allegation that an affair with Shaunie is what soured the relationship between Ross and O’Neal!!!! Talk about drama.
