#HIV Virus In Human Cells Finally Successfully Eliminated

I’ve often asked myself “Why is it that we know so many people that have died from cancer, yet most of us can’t think of a single person that has expired due to the AIDS virus?” That’s question I have yet to receive an answer to. While AIDS is an epidemic, most don’t take the necessary precautions  to ensure that they don’t come in contact with the virus. I’ve also listened to so called statistics  that state that HIV/AIDS is the leading cause of death amongst african americans. This is simply not true. I wanted to take a moment to give you the facts as it relates to the ranking of the deadly virus. The number one cause of death is actually heart disease, followed by cancer and then stroke. This is the reason we rarely hear about people we know personally dying from the virus. However HIV/AIDS remains a serious threat, not amongst african americans, but amongst humans as a whole. Now, since we ARE talking FACTS, African Americans are the racial/ethnic group most affected by HIV.  The rate of new HIV infection in African Americans is 8 times that of whites based on population size. Gay and bisexual men account for most new infections among African Americans; young gay and bisexual men aged 13 to 24 are the most affected of this group. In 2010, men accounted for 70% (14,700) of the estimated 20,900 new HIV infections among all adult and adolescent African Americans. The estimated rate of new HIV infections for African American men (103.6/100,000 population) was 7 times that of white men, twice that of Latino men, and nearly 3 times that of African American women. In 2010, African American gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men**b represented an estimated 72% (10,600) of new infections among all African American men and 36% of an estimated 29,800 new HIV infections among all gay and bisexual men. More new HIV infections (4,800) occurred among young African American gay and bisexual men (aged 13-24) than any other subgroup of gay and bisexual men.Temple University in Philadelphia has discovered a way to destroy HIV and AIDs by operating on the DNA system. Dr. Kamel (Professor and Chair of the Department of Neuroscience) Khalili,  conversed with CBS as to how they did it and what lies ahead. Take a look:

Wow!! @TamekaRaymond is CLEARLY going to be the next STAR in reality TV!!! #AtlantaExes Trailer!!!

 

While reality TV seems to be our only source of network entertainment now, there seems to be a new show that will bring you all of the drama and emotion that you have been patiently waiting for. It’s VH1′s Hollywood Exes spinoff, AtlantaExes. I may be speaking a little prematurely, however, I’m pretty sure that ratings from Atlanta Exes will leave VH1 no choice but to cancel Hollywood Exes. Atlanta has been successful at bringing us nothing but the best entertainment for the last few years. That was until Mona Scott Young angered us with her scripted series Love & Hip Hop. I hate to be completely honest but, I got more entertainment out of Flavor of Love and I love New York. Michelle Brown of StraightFromTheA.com, who always has the earliest news based on her closely connected sources, introduced my to the trailer of the new VH1 series tonight when I just happened to do my nightly check of her site. Instantly I was excited. The title read Exclusive First Look! VH1′s ‘Atlanta Exes’ Super Trailer….and immediately clicked the video link. Instantly I was furious. For some reason the video refused to play on my iPhone 5S. Needless to say, I am now posting this story from my home office while the rest of my household sleeps. Great Job Michelle, as always you excited me with something worth getting out of bed for. Ladies and Gentleman, although I hope you’ve already viewed the video on SFTA, Incase you missed it… here it is. By the way, once you’re finished go add StraightFromTheA.com to your bookmarks!!

The Worse Artist In America Charged With Assault & Battery Against The Police… And NO, It’s Not Nick Cannon!!

There must be at least one person in the world that still buys albums recorded by this guy. I highly doubt any of you will come forward. However, your unwillingness to spend your hard earned nine dollars didn’t stop Ray-J from going crazy on L.A.P.D. According to the police department, Gay-J (Ooops) I meant Ray-J is being charged with 10 crimes including misdemeanor battery charges, four counts of resisting arrest (No idea how this happens), three counts of assault and battery and two counts of vandalism. All charges are misdemeanors. Surely this will likely give the struggling artist some media coverage, although I personally battled even wasting space on UrbanNewsMedia with this craziness. Surely instead of sending Kim Kardashian a wedding gift of $47,000, he could have used that money to hire a vocal coach and a new team, because the money team is serving him absolutely NO purpose. Whatever the case, Ray-J, if you and your sister had hired Chris Jenner has your manager instead of burning that bridge, perhaps you two would still have some fame left.

My #iPhone6 predictions… #UrbanNewsTech #TechPress

(via: 9to5Mac)

(via: 9to5Mac)

Well, here we are. Nearly 2 months from the official Apple iPhone 6  launch. I have long been a fan of Apple. Year after year, I get excited. Not like a child on Christmas Eve, but more like my entire life is about to change. In a sense it’s like I know for a fact that on September 19th (25th, if reports of the launch are correct) that I’m going to win a few million dollars from the lottery. (OK, not THAT extreme). But every year, we see a few concepts designed by talented mobile development students and graphic design enthusiast. But I have a few predictions of my own, relating to the iPhone 6.

1. I have a feeling that the iPhone 6, 5.5 inch version will not be released alongside the 4.7 inch in September. It will launch alongside the iWatch, and I’m expecting that to be released towards the end of December, considering its not rumored to go into production until December. This explains why we haven’t seen any leaks of the gigantic iPhone Air 5.5

2. The visual specs of the 4.7 inch and the 5.5 inch will be nearly identical except I have a feeling that the 4.7 inch will will have a somewhat basic 10 megapixel camera, whereas the iPhone Air (5.5) will sport an upgraded camera featuring automatic, digital image stabilization and it will also feature some of the same sensors rumored to be inside of the iWatch. It will likely sport a  10-megapixel camera, but even more interesting is that it will have an aperture of f/1.8, an upgrade from the current f/2.2. Sources also claim Apple will replace the current hybrid IR filter with a resin lens filter made by JSR.

3. The 5.5 inch iPhone Air will be almost identical to last years iPad Air, only smaller. Less bezel will also be a factor and of course. It will feature a solid backing and the Apple Logo will officially light up, similar to the MacBook line-up.

4. The 5.5 inch iPhone should come with 128GB of storage, however I’m kind of on edge about this prediction, simply because the iPad Mini had a 128gb storage option and wasn’t a hot seller.

5. Faster wi-fi chip.

6. NFC, iBeacon and Wireless charging. I’m thinking Apple has figured out a way to integrate NFC and iBeacon.

Keyshia Cole to OFFICIALLY file for divorce. Tomorrow??

Well, (not that this is shocking to ANYBODY) Keyshia “ClassyThot” Cole is officially filing for a divorce from her husband, Daniel “Boobie” Gibson in the next day or two. Here are the details according to TMZ.

Sources close to the singer tell TMZ she’s already drawn up divorce papers and we’re told she plans to file them any day now. The couple has a 4-year-old son.

Keyshia and Boobie had 2 wedding ceremonies … the first in May 2011, and then a bigger — aka expensive — one four months later in Hawaii. One divorce will get the job done though.

Interestingly, Cole just released a new single called “She” which seems to allude to a female lover: “Down to try something different/Lips and legs/Soft skin so feminine/Curves like me/Covered in my cherry scent.”

Maybe unrelated. Possibly just art. Definitely hot.

EnTaPrize presents @TriumphETP, @MuneeETP & @LanoTheDon with #ShoYaRight!!!

Independent label EnTaPrize, better know as ETP strikes again with “Sho Ya Right” which is a fun, fast paced record that shows off the playful lyrics of the 2 time BET 106 and Park winners Triumph and Munee. This is the lead single from “Blood Sweat N Tearz”, a EP that will be released early June. The duo teamed up with R & B sensation Lano for the chorus, and he chimed in with a mind boggling bridge that will have you chanting it daily! None of the lyrical magic would have been possible without the hard knocking production from Kinobeats. Rounding off the Virginia (757) collaboration was Shawn Church who brought the song to life with a sexy, detailed visual of the song with his directing expertise. Follow Triumph and Munee on twitter to get to know the stars of “Sho Ya Right” at @TriumphETP and @MuneeETP.
