“I carried 16 [bodies] yesterday,” Korvayan said.

Instructors from Teaze Fitness danced in to talk about new fitness dancing trends, including “twerk-outs.” Love laughing at my job.

We danced a little on the show today. Booty poppin’ to be exact.

This is why I wear sunscreen every single damn day. Wear it. Do it. Do it now.

Shooting in Port Allen. Mapping out the crime scene. Deputies say at least 19 shots were fired. By each of those yellow signs in the distance, there’s a shell casing. Neighbors say 1 person was transported by Ambulance to hospital, shot at least three times. It happened right near a park. Some witnesses say law enforcement was spraying mace.

Please keep this circulating. Cops are getting more and more brazen, know your rights!

good to know

my brother is a police officer and these are all v true and things he made sure i knew but also remember the police can lie lie lie. the best thing, as mentioned, is to yell “i do not consent” repeatedly and hope someone will hear and act as an eyewitness for you

this is super important and we need to circulate this especially with the upcoming chicago raid ?? we need to do everything we can to protect possible victims of police brutality and hate crimes. it is not okay to break the law that goes for the people being arrested and the people arresting. stay safe.

Key among that: cops can and will lie, often. They will use tactics to trick you into consenting, because this covers them against lawsuits, not because it helps them investigate. Always know your rights. Always be prepared for the worst to happen. Always refuse to talk without an attorney present.

I’ve had police officers tell me I can’t do something when in fact, I have a right to do so. Know what’s up and know you’re rights. Always be alert.

We’ve decided to look deeper at the matter by exploring average internet speeds by state with this map. Using Akamai’s “State of the Internet” Report, we were able to find the average internet speed in each state.
The speeds are measured in megabits per second (mbps) which is simply a measurement of data transfer speed within a network. In our map, darker greens represent faster speeds and lighter greens represent slower speeds.
The Northeast has some of the fastest speeds in the nation, while the Midwest and less populated states have generally slower speeds. The state with the fastest speed was Virginia at 13.7 average mbps, while the slowest belonged to Alaska at 7 average mbps. Check out our map and see where your state ranks!

And then sometimes, you’re live, and you completely forget what you were going to say. And you’re tripping over your words, trying not to say um, um, but it’s already too late, you said it. You’re scrambling for words, and then you think you get out what you wanted to say. The whole ordeal lasts about seven seconds but if feels like an eternity.
