Miss Universe

Miss Universe

* Miss Colombia crowned Miss Universe in Miami Associated Press By KELLI KENNEDY Jan 25, 2015 MIAMI (AP) — Miss Colombia Paulina Vega has been crowned Miss Universe, beating out first runner-up Miss USA Nia Sanchez and contestants from more than 80 other countries at Sunday's pageant in Miami. Vega, a 22-year-old student of business administration from Barranquilla, Colombia, said the contests leading up to Miss Universe were the first she had participated in. She also said they would be her last as she would be eager to return to her studies in Colombia after her reign. "It will be a dream come true to represent the woman of today. A woman that not only cares about being beautiful and being glamorous, but also cares about being a professional, intelligent, hard-working person," Vega had said earlier in the week in talking about the role of the winner. Following Sanchez, the 24-year-old Miss USA from Las Vegas, Nevada, the second runner-up was Miss Ukraine Diana Harkusha. Miss Jamaica Kaci Fennell and Mis ...* Nick Jonas can do no wrong!

Nick Jonas' girlfriend, Olivia Culpo, stole the show with her shocking fashion choice at the 63rd annual Miss Universe pageant! Although the stage was filled with gorgeous women from across th...* I am not satisfy of the result of the Miss Universe, Netherlands is a darkhorse of the top 15, top 10 and even in the top 5, I didnt expect her to be part of the top 5, i prefer Colombia or Jamaica to be the last 2 standing of the competition, but I guess the Miss Universe Organization deserve the "BOOH" from the crowd. Miss USA is good, but not too convincing. A lot of waisted beauty this year. Not a good year for the MU organization. A lot of people said that Miss Universe is the best cooking show in the planet. I am also praying and hoping that Stella Araneta must give up the Binibining Pilipinas if she will continue her stand that Barazza will still design the costume of the filipina beauty queens. I am very angry about the result its not convincing.
 
Royal Rumble

Royal Rumble

I think people attacking WWE for that is wrong and childish. People want to cancel Wwe Network is by far the most ridiculous think I have ever heard. Im a true WWE and Pro Wrestling fan for life. you better believe that Sucka.* – Following last night’s Royal Rumble, was trending internationally. The cancellation page for the Wwe Network also crashed for about an hour last night, due to too much traffic. — Here …* I love wrestling, canceling your Wwe Network because you didn't like the outcome of the Royal Rumble is really lame. That would be like canceling a sports network because your team lost, or you quit going to wrestling shows because someone you didn't like won. Watching ppvs for 9.99 is a lot better than 50 or 60 dollars a month. That's what really grinds my gears! Yes, I'm a fan of Family Guy, don't judge me! lol* See??? I've been complaining for nearly a year about WWE, it's scamjob of a "network" and just the booking, in general. It takes a crappy Royal Rumble to make customers finally revolt and call for a boycott of the Wwe Network??? Whatever it takes, I suppose. In protest of WWE being...just lame & ill-conceived, I took this photo of Daniel Bryan & turned him into ME!

I'm going to rant. It's almost embarrassing most of the time these days to admit that I was in the news media during my career. The way they hype things, especially if it touches the Northeast or West Coast. The news reporters, even anchors just seem to regurgitate spoon-fed stories without ever confirming, substantiating anything as factual or true, FIRST! And, when it comes to the weather, I'm use to the hype on the Weather Channel. I kinda get their hype, understand their perspective. But, I also understand, know David Letterman was a "weatherman" when I worked with him in Indy 5 decades ago if you understand what I am saying, my perspective. Well, tonight NBC News got me. Miguel Almaguer was reporting on the weather hitting and expected to hit the Northeast and West Coast. O...M...G ! ! They might get 8 inches of rain in the bay in 24 hours. But, thousands of miles away on the East Coast, 10,000 homes were already without power in the Northeast. Okay, wait a minute, how many homes are there "in ...* a real bummer. Time Warner Cable & Dish Network have blocked the Discovery Channel along with the Weather Channel in my hotel* Super Typhoon Hagupit -- on track to be the world's most powerful storm so far this year -- is forecast to either hit or graze the Philippines by the weekend. Hagupit strengthened into a typhoon Tuesday and has continued to strengthen Wednesday. It now has sustained winds of 150 mph, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center reported. This is equivalent to a Category 4 hurricane. "If the storm takes the track into the Philippines, the impacts will be potentially very severe with widespread flooding, damaging winds, mudslides, storm surge and pounding surf," A continued west-northwest track would place the central Philippines in the threat zone, including areas still recovering from deadly Super Typhoon Haiyan about 13 months ago, the most intense tropical cyclone at landfall in history, the Weather Channel said.

Radical Greek anti-austerity party wins parliamentary election Greece's Radical Left Syriza party, which is vowing to end the country's tough austerity program, moved quickly to form a government Monday, a day after winning a decisive victory in Sunday's parliamentary elections. Party leader Alexis Tsipras, at age 40 Greece's youngest Prime Minister in 150 years, said the vote gave the party a clear mandate to end "five years of humiliation and pain," signaling a showdown with lenders over the terms of Greece's $270 billion international bailout. Greek stocks fell by five percent early Monday. [The Washington Post] 2. New York and the rest of the Northeast brace for historic storm Airlines canceled nearly 2,000 flights on Monday ahead of a potentially historic winter storm headed into the Northeast.

Syriza party launched coalition talks Monday, hours after a landmark general election victory fought on a pledge to rewrite the country’s massive bailout deal with the eurozone. Tsipras’ party just missed a majority in parliament after defeating Prime Minister Antonis Samaras’ conservative coalition by a wider margin than expected.
