You Won’t Hear About This On The News But A Kean University Frat Just Bought a Plot Of Land To Build A House for a Homeless Family

NEWARK - A group of Kean University fraternity members are doing their part to help a family in need.

The members of Iota Phi Theta bought a plot of land in Newark for $1,000. The city ran a special program on Valentine’s Day, selling couples empty lots for a cheap price if they agreed to build on the land and live there for five years.

The city allowed the fraternity to buy the land because the students will be allowing a homeless family to live there, free of charge. That family is currently living in a shelter.

“I see a chance to change someone’s life,” says senior Tosin Oduwole.

The hope is to break ground on their lot by April and have the family move into the new home by the summer.

“We want to teach that to new people soon to join [the fraternity], that we continually and forever will do what we can to give back to our community,” Oduwole says. “I want to be 60 years old and this initiative our organization is doing is still happening.”

 

NJThe empty patch of land on the 800 block of 17th Street in Newark doesn’t look like much, at least not yet.

“Right now it’s got a gate up, and an abandoned car I believe belongs to the neighbors,” said Tosin Oduwole, a member of the Kean University chapter of Iota Phi Theta. “It looks like an empty lot, but we see what it can be, and that’s what we’re working to turn it into.”

The fraternity does community service projects annually, but wanted to do something different from their typical bake sales or food and clothing drives this year, Oduwole said.

“We were trying to think of something that would be more of a lasting effect,” he said. “If you provide coats for a winter, after that winter is done, it’s a fleeting effect.”
 

I noticed Gawker didn’t pick up this story yet but I’m sure it’s just a matter of time.  I mean if this was a completely fake and fabricated unverified rape story it would be their front page banner for 2 weeks, but just give it a minute, I’m sure it will get up there.  Just an absolutely awesome move from Iota Phi Theta that deserves all the attention it can get.  Not just going through the motions of some sort of half assed effort to satisfy the Greek Life philanthropy expectations – going above and beyond to actually make a huge difference in someone’s life that needs it.  Buying land, building a house and having a family live there rent free.  Nothing wrong with the standard clothing drives and events that most frats have obviously, all philanthropy is good philanthropy.  But you got to give some huge props to these guys for breaking out the charity big guns.

That white dad dance move right there is what we in the industry call the marionette.  A classic for any occasion from a fast paced song at a wedding to the locker room after beating rival UNC.  A must have in your white dancing arsenal, along with the shoulder see saw of course.

Skrillex, Diplo, and Justin Bieber – Where Are Ü Now

Skrillex and Diplo have been at it as Jack U for a minute, but they had only put out one song together as of yesterday.  Last night that all changed, as the DJ mega-duo revealed their entire 10 track album in a 24 hour livestreamed set.  With features from Justin Bieber, 2 Chainz, AlunaGeorge, Kiesza, Missy Elliott, and more and the insane, often bassy and never predictable production of Skrillex and Diplo, this album is undoubtedly groundbreaking, if not the most listenable thing in the world.  Love the tracks with Bieber and AlunaGeorge though, and the 2 Chainz joint isn’t half bad.

Boston University Offering Harry Potter Sex-Ed Class

Globe - Two Boston University graduate interns believe they’ve concocted the perfect potion to talk to their peers about sexual taboos, simply by adding a dash of Harry Potter to the discussion.

On Thursday, as part of a monthlong sexual health and education program called “Frisky February,” Michelle Goode and Jamie Klufts, will step into the world of wizardry for a discussion of consensual intimacy during an event titled “Sex-ed at Hogwarts.”

“A lot of students entering college don’t actually get a foundation in sexual health, so we are going back to the basics, and finding ways to loop in references and scenarios from Harry Potter,” said Klufts, who works with Goode at BU’s Wellness and Prevention Services program.

The idea for the magical mashup came when Klufts and Goode realized that Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling missed an opportunity in her writing to address questions about sex that most students have when in junior high and high school.

“How can you have a school full of wizards and not talk about sex and sexuality?” said Klufts.

Klufts and Goode said they’re planning to cover sex-related topics at the event using every book from the Harry Potter series.

The hour-and-a-half long class will use topics, situations, and even vernacular from the books as examples to discuss topics including responsible drinking, contraception, and sexually transmitted diseases.

“We’re using the references as an opening and avenue to get the conversations started,” said Goode.

Goode said students seem excited to engage in a discussion that destigmatizes sex by relying on familiar characters and storylines.

She said more than 80 people have signed up for the event so far.

 

 

Let’s be clear, if you’re in college and go to a Harry Potter seminar to learn how to fuck, just pack your shit and save your parents the tuition money.  The place is just not for you.  5th, 6th, 7th grade yes, great idea, make it fun and light hearted for the kids learning about safe sex that they’ll encounter in high school (or probably even 8th grade with the way kids are now).   But a 20 year old a year or two away from being an adult in the real world with a career, rent, taxes – ehh, not so much.

I mean this isn’t some fun sex class that we usually talk about colleges offering, like how to use the Harry Potter books to spice up your sex life and make shit extra kinky in the bedroom.  Some sort of advanced role playing in your sexual explorations with a significant other.  This is straight up Sex Ed 101, “contraception and STDs and responsible drinking (??).”  It’s the ABCs of having sex like you learn in middle school.  Seriously if you need to dress up like a wizard and ride a Quidditch broomstick into a lecture hall to learn how to put a penis into a vagina you should go ahead and use the Accio spell to put a gun in your hand and stick it in your mouth.  Grow up Peter Pan, Count Chocula, Neville Longbottom.

 

 

PS – Only one part of Harry Potter that I want to talk about sexually, knowwhatImsayin?

Margot Robbie Only Got The ‘Wolf Of Wall Street’ Part Because She Punked Out Leo DiCaprio

http%3A%2F%2Fbarstoolu.barstoolsports.com%2Frandom-thoughts%2Fmargot-robbie-only-got-the-wolf-of-wall-street-part-because-she-punked-out-leo-dicaprio%2F

Harper’s Bazaar – [In Margot Robbie's words] “OK, so: big open room, video camera, Ellen Lewis is filming. Just me, Marty and Leo.” In the scene, Robbie’s character and DiCaprio’s character…are on their first date. ‘We get three lines into it and he says something and, subconsciously, I roll my eyes. And Leo’s like, ‘What was that look for?’ And I’m thinking, in my head: ‘That’s not a line! Is he really asking me that? Should I explain?’ And then I realise he’s ad-libbing. I’m like, ‘Oh, shit. He’s improvising! I need to improvise now!’

“So I’m failing miserably. And Leo’s phenomenal. He’s powerful. He can do his part and he can do your part at the same time with his eyes closed. I’m barely getting a word in. When I do it’s not anything interesting – I just look pathetic.”

Next scene…Robbie again: “In my head I was like, ‘You have literally 30 seconds left in this room and if you don’t do something impressive nothing will ever come of it. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance, just take it.’ And so I start screaming at him and he’s yelling back at me. And he’s really scary. I can barely keep up. And he ends it saying, ‘You should be happy to have a husband like me. Now get over here and kiss me.’ So I walk up really close to his face and then I’m like, ‘Maybe I should kiss him. When else am I ever going to get a chance to kiss Leo DiCaprio, ever?’ But another part of my brain clicks and I just go, Whack! I hit him in the face. And then I scream, ‘F*ck you!’ And that’s not in the script at all. The room just went dead silent and I froze. I’m thinking, ‘You just hit Leonardo DiCaprio in the face. They’re going to arrest you because that’s assault. You’re definitely never going to work again, that’s for sure. They’ll probably sue you as well in case there’s a bruise on his face and he needs to film something else. And then all of a sudden Marty and Leo just burst out laughing. Marty says, ‘That was great!’ Leo’s like, ‘Hit me again!’”

 
 

Margot Robbie is so close to being the biggest thing in Hollywood and I couldn’t be more excited. She was hot as hell in Wolf of Wall Street physically but the bitchy Brooklyn chick vibe she gave out was also beyond perfect if you’re into that sort of thing (and I say this with a rich personal tapestry of misery coming from that demographic), maybe only second to Scarlett Johansson in that Don Jon movie with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. But the big thing here is how genius she seems to be. We’ve established multiple times that Leo has his pick of any women on Earth because of his combo of good looks, fame and fortune, and game on top of game. So how do you stay a step ahead? By doing something so out of left field that he didn’t know it was possible. For Leo, chicks are like a Choose Your Own Adventure book; you do this A thing and there are only X, Y, and Z outcomes. So if you come out of nowhere and slap the taste out of his mouth, that’s about the biggest power move a chick can drop. It’s the only reason he’s got this weird cat and mouse game going on with Rihanna. Dude is the fucking man but he’s practically a psychological case study at this point.

 
 

Bottom line: No doubt in my mind that Margot Robbie is going to blow up in the next few years, surest thing in decades. Too hot, instincts too good, way too perfect naked. Death, taxes, and Margot Robbie being the next big thing are the only certainties in life.

Adidas Offers $100K For Fastest 40 Time at the Combine, Refuses To Pay The UAB Player Who Wins

http%3A%2F%2Fbarstoolu.barstoolsports.com%2Frandom-thoughts%2Fadidas-offers-100k-for-fastest-40-time-at-the-combine-refuses-to-pay-the-uab-player-who-wins%2F
Feb 2711:00AM EST

 

 

ESPN - Former UAB receiver JJ Nelson, who ran the fastest overall time at the NFL combine, is confused why he doesn’t have $100,000 in his pocket.

Adidas said it would pay the top three fastest players who ran the 40-yard dash in its shoes and signed a contract to endorse the brand before they ran $100,000.

When Nelson went to the player suite where he had a choice to run in the latest models form Nike, Under Armour and Adidas, he said he chose Adidas not only because the shoes were comfortable but because he was aware of the $100,000 prize.

“I wasn’t completely focused on it at the time,” Nelson told ESPN.com. “I was obviously focused on getting a good time first.”

An Adidas news release said that the offer was “open to the athletes who sign with adidas prior to running their official 40 yard dashes later this month,” but Nelson said he wasn’t ever given a chance to sign with the brand.

“I signed some waiver at some point, but I was never given a chance to sign an endorsement deal,” Nelson said.

When the ESPN.com article was posted that quoted Adidas spokesman Michael Ehrlich as saying Nelson wasn’t eligible because he didn’t sign with the brand, Nelson said he started getting phone calls and text messages.

“Players and friends were calling me thinking I would be dumb enough to turn down $100,000,” Nelson said.

At 5-foot-10, 156 pounds, Nelson — who ran a 4.28 40-yard dash — is thought of as, at best, a late-round draft pick. The same can’t be said for the three players who took home the $100,000.

 

 

Umm not to sound like the smartest guy in the room or anything but seems kind of cut and dry to me?  You need to sign a contract to endorse Adidas before running to be eligible for the prize.  JJ Nelson didn’t sign a contract with Adidas.  Thus JJ Nelson was not eligible.  Yeah he was clearly confused and Adidas maybe didn’t make it clear enough and it flat out sucks to think you just won $100K only to end up with zilch, but let’s not act like this is some huge injustice.  It’s shitty luck and planning and communication, and a huge bummer for Nelson.  But it doesn’t seem like a malicious move by Adidas to just not pay a guy because he’s not a big enough name or something.

Obviously though it’s probably in Adidas’s best interest to just pay the guy considering they probably have that kind of cash in a shoebox somewhere, just to avoid the negative press.  Last thing you need when you’re getting your skulls stomped in by Nike is bad PR.  Phil Knight would have like $500K cash in a duffel bag and 20 suitcases full of apparel waiting at the kid’s doorstep this morning just to get him to not say anything bad to the media anymore, but then again that’s why they’re Nike.

South Carolina College Bans Athletes From Being Gay

OutsportsErskine College has issued a new official statement that is expected to drive a no-gays policy at the school and create an atmosphere where LGBT people do not feel safe:

Christ affirms that marital union is to be between a man and woman (Matt 19:4-6). The Bible teaches that monogamous marriage between a man and a woman is God’s intended design for humanity and that sexual intimacy has its proper place only within the context of marriage (1 Thes. 4:3-5, Col. 3:5-7). Sexual relations outside of marriage or between persons of the same sex are spoken of in scripture as sin and contrary to the will of the Creator (Rom. 1:26-27; 1 Cor. 6:9-10; 1 Tim. 1:9-11).

We believe the Bible teaches that all sexual activity outside the covenant of marriage is sinful and therefore ultimately destructive to the parties involved. As a Christian academic community, and in light of our institutional mission, members of the Erskine community are expected to follow the teachings of scripture concerning matters of human sexuality and institutional decisions will be made in light of this position.

The statement also offers a perfunctory olive branch about “prayerfulness” toward “same-sex attraction” and “gender identity.”

According to the school’s Web site, “the Student Services and Athletic Committee submitted and the full board approved a Statement on Human Sexuality. The administration will add the statement to its official manuals and determine how it will be integrated into campus culture and procedures.”

The school is clearly reacting to pressure from a group of conservative Christians who have been pressuring the school to eradicate gay people from the campus. Erskine College is associated with the Presbyterian Church.

 

 

Super aggressive move from Erskine College huh?  A school with 2 openly gay athletes on their highly successful volleyball team just banning athletes from being gay.   Can you even do that? Just stand up in the quad somewhere and declare that being gay is no longer allowed?  Reminds me of Michael Scott declaring bankruptcy.

 

 

Hey you.  Gay guy.  Stop it.  You’re not allowed to be gay anymore, as of this morning.  Policy change.  Switch to straight.

 

 

Here’s the story about the two gay volleyball players

 

Last year we featured the stories of Drew Davis and Juan Varona, two gay Erskine College volleyball players who had found acceptance from their teammates in the small school in rural South Carolina. After we wrote about them the team went on to the NCAA tournament, one of only six teams in the country to appear in the postseason.

 

…well, formerly gay.  Assuming they’re no longer gay as per the orders of the administration after their one-on-one meeting with God.  Hope Drew and Juan track the school president down and spike a volleyball down his throat.
