Pokemon Go

Unless you didn’t have access to the Internet you know about Pokémon Go. Basically, it is a new game application for smartphones created by Niantic. The game is all about walking around catching Pokemon’s and meeting new people. You’re supposed to walk to so-called PokéStops to collect items such as potions, eggs, and Pokéballs.


After catching enough friends, making them stronger and reaching level 5, you can battle gyms. By defeating gyms you become a gym leader. Being a gym leader is a huge responsibility, you’re doing well for your team and for yourself because you get bonuses but you also have to make sure other team members don’t take over the gym. Today’s article is about one of the trainers who has caught ’em all.

This is Nick Johnson. He caught all the Pokémon available in the US couple of weeks ago. Now Nick has traveled worldwide to complete his PokéDex and catch every single Pokémon available outside of the US. To make the game more fun, developers made sure to make continent only Pokémons. Mr.Mime, Farfetch’d and Kangashkhan

Nick went to France on August 1, 2016, to catch Mr.Mime. But that wasn’t enough Pokémon to complete Nick’s PokéDex so he continued his traveling and went to Hong Kong to catch Farfetch’d.

Nick posted “I came, I saw, I fetched.” on his Twitter account after catching Farfetch’d.

And last but not least, Nick went to Sydney, Australia to catch Kangashkhan, which is only available in Australia and New Zealand.

After catching all 145 available Pokémons, Nick tweeted to Nintendo asking if he could visit Nintendo headquarters since he’s in Japan as for August 5, 2016.

That completes Nick’s Pokédex. Of course he’s missing the legendary Pokémons and Ditto, but as for now, none of them are available so that makes Nick the first trainer to catch ’em all!

Why the iPhone 7 Plus (PRODUCT) RED is Truly the Apple of my Eye

Why my iPhone 7 Plus (PRODUCT) RED is the Apple of my eye.

Apple products may not be selling like they use to, but it will always be the #1 brand to me. As an owner of a Red iPhone 7 Plus, the purchase was truly more than just a mere collection of another expensive electronic, I now contribute to a remarkable opportunity to make a difference and contribute to the Global Fund through the purchase of this new beautiful (PRODUCT)RED iPhone.


“Since we began working with (RED) 10 years ago, our customers have made a significant impact in fighting the spread of AIDS through the purchase of our products, from the original iPod nano (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition all the way to today’s lineup of Beats products and accessories for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO.

It has a digital fingerprint recognition system that will only allow me to use my phone, a tracking device that can find all my Apple electronics and sync them together along with commonly used apps so I can choose which product I like to listen to Spotify. So when I am on my iPhone I can switch it to play the music on my laptop even though it is not an Apple, but because I have the application on my electronic.

“Combining the global reach of the world’s most loved smartphone with our efforts to provide access to life-saving ARV medication in sub-Saharan Africa, customers now have a remarkable opportunity to make a difference and contribute to the Global Fund through the purchase of this new beautiful (PRODUCT)RED iPhone.”

The iPhone 7 Plus (PRODUCT) RED color is synonymous with its color because the phone features and contributions are literally on FIRE! I purchased mine under the Verizon Wireless plan because I feel they have the best service & they know it, that is why they charge for it. I find myself treating my new phone like a brand new car. I am always detailing it, buying accessories for it and cleaning it off by detailing every part of it.

“Every customer who buys iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition or iPhone SE from Apple will be offered free Personal Setup, in-store or online, to help them customize their iPhone by setting up email, showing them new apps from the App Store & more. Anyone who wants to learn the basics or go further with their new iPhone can register for a free workshop at every Apple Store.”

Maryland Uber Driver Charged With Kidnap And Assault Of Female Passenger.

A Maryland Uber driver, Westagne Pierre, has been charged with assault and kidnap of a female passenger. Surveillance video from outside the motel show Westagne carrying the unconscious woman from his vehicle to a motel room.

An Uber driver from Greenbelt, Maryland was arrested and is facing charges of kidnapping and assault of a female passenger.  29-year-old Westagne Pierre picked up the intoxicated woman outside of a bar in the Washington, DC after the woman’s friends requested a ride. Instead of taking the woman home to Fairfax, VA, Pierre took her to a nearby College Park Budget Inn motel where he is accused of assaulting her.


Surveillance video from outside the motel show Westagne carrying the unconscious woman from his vehicle to a motel room. Video footage shows that Pierre spent some time in the room with the woman who had been limp when carried in. Authorities also say that Pierre used the victims credit card at a 7-11 not far from the hotel where he left her.

Westagne Pierre is facing charges of kidnapping, theft and assault with additional charges pending. The nature of the assault on the woman has not been clarified, but as is common with victims of sexual assault, her name has not been released. The only identifying information released so far on the passenger turned victim is that she lives in Virginia.

Pierre’s attorney, Esteban Gergely, is not denying that something sexual occurred in the motel room. In fact, he has been quoted as saying that his client denies there was a lack of consent the night he took the woman to the Budget Inn per The Washington Post.

Pierre’s story of consent may not fly with Prince Georges County Police who are investigating these allegations. The Budget Inn’s security cameras captured Pierre on 3 separate occasions. Once as he exited his car to enter the lobby and pay for a room, again as he returns to his car and pics the victim up off the back seat and physically carried her limp body, feet not touching the ground, to the room. Pierre can be seen a third time on camera as he leaves the motel room alone and returns to his vehicle.

Charging documents show that Westagne Pierre was arrested after police matched surveillance footage from the Budget Inn and 7-11with Pierre’s driver’s license photo. Pierre was initially given a $150,000 bail which was reduced due to lack of substantial evidence and he was released on a $250 bond.

It’s obvious Pierre’s attorney is hoping the woman’s extreme intoxication will help his client get off. “The facts of the case are very peculiar and they fall extremely short of being incriminating,” Gergely has said. “There were no facts in the statement of charges that suggested he did any injury or trauma.”  In last week’s bail hearing the lawyer told a judge “She’s saying she doesn’t remember anything,” followed by, “If she doesn’t remember anything, she certainly doesn’t remember saying, ‘I don’t want these things to happen.’ ”

Uber has been contacted and immediately removed Wetsagne Pierre as a driver on the app. “This is deeply upsetting,” Uber spokeswoman Brooke Anderson told The Washington Post. “The driver has been banned from the app and we have been working closely with police to support the investigation.”

It’s been a rough year for Uber as it deals with the multiple crimes committed by drivers under the brand. In February, a Brooklyn Uber driver was accused of pulling out his penis and sexually assaulting a female passenger.It was also February when a Kalamazoo, Michigan driver went on a shooting spree, killing six and injuring more between  fares. In July of this year Two Uber drivers were arrested while on duty in California and  Michigan, one on drugs and weapons charges and the other on sexual assault of a passenger.

More and more we are relying on technology and apps to live our lives. Ride share apps and car services like Uber and Lyft in theory are great ideas but is easy access to a ride worth your safety or your life? There have been too many  incidents with Uber  drivers this year to list but if you sue the app I suggest you do your research.

And people please remember: If your female friend is too drunk to get herself home, it’s NOT a good idea to put her in a car with a man that neither of you know. Be a REAL friend and take your friend home with you or go home with them. Luckily the young woman was assaulted and robbed, not murdered, sold in to human trafficking or worse. Hopefully she can heal from this and hopefully Uber will find some real way of assuring its riders are safe and not just taking their money.

This New Mobile App Helps Women Find Ideal Beauty Products to Withstand the Weather

Black tech entrepreneur, Sian Morson, is the creative mind behind “Cast Beauty”, a new mobile app that will help women choose the beauty products according to their skin and hair type, and the weather.

When tech entrepreneur, Sian Morson, moved from hot and dry San Francisco to the very humid ATL, she didn’t realize the move would ruin her skin and hair.


Her usual beauty products and routines were no longer working and when she talked to other women experiencing similar issues, Morson created a new mobile app, Cast Beauty.

sian-morson-1-600×401

She recently spoke to Atlanta Blackstar about her inspiration for creating a beauty app that can use a women’s unique beauty attributes, like hair and skin type along with the weather, to suggest ideal beauty products.

“So, I started talking to some women who had relocated from different parts of the country to Atlanta, and what they told me was that they had to make some changes too, in terms of the products they were using,” Morson told Atlanta Black Star. “So that got me thinking, if this is not just a problem that I was experiencing and other people were having the issue, maybe there was a way to technically address the issue.”

The process is really simple. Once you download the app you’ll need to sign in and answer a few mandatory questions like your age, hair type (curly, straight, etc.), skin type (dry, oily or combination) and the city where you live. You might be asked additional questions, but Morson says they are optional.

“Those are the only mandatory questions we have, because your age, your skin type and your hair type are really critical to the algorithms providing the products,” she explained. “We do our magic on the back end, and we go in and find the products that are best suited for you based on your current location.”

Signing in with Amazon makes the process even easier if you decide to purchase any of the suggested products. When it comes to the quality of the products, Cast Beauty has a mixture of low end and higher end brands. Morson says, “The more expensive brands tend to be some of the better sellers.” If you find yourself not satisfied with any of the choices, then you can always refresh the app until you find something you like.

“So it’s not like you’re stuck with whatever is recommended. If you choose to continually refresh, you’ll get new products until you find something that you like, so that’s been a positive.” says, Morson.

Morson says she is still working to per-fect Cast Beauty. Her hope is to make the app a popular destination for interesting content like videos, articles and general beauty information. Right now the content is there but users complain that it’s hard to find.

cast_showcase_4Top beauty brands are also finding this app to be very valuable. By partnering with Cast Beauty, the brands are learning more about their consumers and how to meet their needs. 85% of the app’s users are women of color who normally are ignored when it comes to beauty offerings. Morson hopes to “disrupt” the beauty industry and eliminate traditional beauty standards.

“The beauty industry needs to wake up to that fact,” she said. “Because my audience is mostly Black women, I’m privy to what brands they prefer, what brands they like. And I think the beauty industry really needs to acknowledge that. I think it’s happening, but it’s not happening quickly enough. And so I think that technology is really where I think that change can happen a lot faster.”

When asked about her future goals for Cast Beauty Morson remarked,

“Right now we’re focusing on the U.S. market but ultimately, we would love to expand to Japan and China and the continent of Africa,” she said. “We want to be able to get beauty products into the hands of women all over the world. I think that that is our goal.”
