Big Viking Games Dear YoVille Players, We are very pleased to announce that Big Viking Games has successfully negotiated the acquisition of YoVille! On May 12th, the game will go offline for roughly 24 hours while all the necessary information is transferred to us. Read more ...
When it comes back online, it will be in our hands and will be known as YoWorld from then on. In short: #SaveYoVille status: COMPLETE! This turn of events is without precedent, and it never could have happened without your endless support and campaigning. We are blown away by your love and devotion for the game, and the fact that you never gave up hope. You have truly shown us what the community is made of, and we at Big Viking Games are both proud and honored to be lucky enough to work with you in ushering in a new era of the game. So what does the future of YoWorld look like? We’ll go into more detail on this next, but the plan is simple: Make the game bigger and better. Fix the bugs and loopholes. Work with players to create exciting new content and features that everyone will love. The scope of taking over a living, breathing game like YoWorld, complete with over 6 years of history, is huge. Not just technologically, but also from a production standpoint. We’ve had many, many discussions on how to proceed, and we always come back to the same 3 core ideas – our YoValues. YoValue #1: Safe and Secure In order to run YoWorld successfully and make it a great experience for everyone, it is incredibly important to keep the game and its players free from exploitation. Not only will we devote a large amount of resources to moderation, but also to creating better systems to detect cheaters, give players better tools to avoid scams and hacked items, and more ability to deal with harassment. Exploits will be patched regularly, and we will ban players who take advantage of them. Real money trading is harmful to our ability to keep the game going, and will be dealt with appropriately. The Free Gift item issues are of particular focus, we and Zynga have collaborated to fix a major exploit with this already. A bug bounty program will also be put into place. The first person (and only the first one) to provide us with evidence of a particular working exploit and any reproduction steps will be rewarded with YoCash. Send any information you have to YWBugBounty@YoWorld.com. YoValue #2: Community Engagement Having a good working relationship with the YoWorld community is essential for us. We value your suggestions and feedback enormously, and we want to make sure we’re listening to you and giving you the ability to talk to us and vice versa. This doesn’t mean we can always give you everything you want, but your voice will definitely be heard and your feedback considered. The forums and product page will still be in place as before, but we will also introduce new, more direct channels for your feedback, including an active support staff, opinion polls, and more. YoValue #3: User Generated Experiences The thing that sets YoWorld apart from other games on Facebook is how so much of the fun in the game is created by the players, not the creators. We think that’s awesome, and want to add many new features, minigames and other exciting updates to make playing with others even better than before. One of the first things we’ll be doing is working to get an events system back into the game, as they were fantastic for user generated experiences. From there, we’ll be reviewing your suggestions on other things you wish were in the game to do with other players too. A big focus will be to get people coming back into the game that have stopped playing. YoWorld will be more fun with more people, and we’ll need your help! Spread the word, invite your friends, share this post! We know there will be many more questions, comments and concerns from players in the coming weeks, and we’ve created a brief FAQ list below to answer a few we’ve anticipated. We will also be hosting a Question & Answer event at a later date, where Greg Thomson (creator of YoVille) and other members of the YoWorld team will be on hand to answer questions. Details of this to follow. You can pre-submit your questions by sending an email to YWQandA@YoWorld.com Once again, thank you for all of your continued support, and welcome to the Big Viking Games family. It’s going to be fun! - The YoWorld Team Anticipated Frequently Asked Questions: Q: Will the forums be transferred? A: We will be setting up a new community space for YoWorld players to interact outside of the game. Q: Do I need to do anything to transfer to YoWorld. A: No. Your details will be transferred to us automatically UNLESS you fill out Zynga’s account deletion form. Q: Do I need to fill out the Account Deletion Form? A: Fill this out ONLY if you want your YoWorld account to be deleted permanently instead of transferred to Big Viking Games. Q: Will events be turned back on? A: Yes. We will be rebuilding the event technology to allow players to host events once again! Q: Why change the name from YoVille to YoWorld? A: It was a necessary step in being able to obtain the game, but it also speaks to our goal of making the game bigger and better than ever before! Q: Will we keep our apartments and avatars etc? A: Absolutely. Q: What about FG items? A: Free Gift items that were created by hackers will be removed if possible, and we aim to stop any more of these items from entering the game. Q: What about unreleased items? A: If we can identify and remove them, we will. We will need your help on this! Q: What will you do about the hackers? A: We will get rid of the exploits and take necessary action against players who take advantage of other players and the game. Q: What new things will you introduce to YoWorld? A: We will focus on fixing what already exists, as well as adding exciting new features and content. Player suggestions will make a huge difference in what we do, so let’s see what we can come up with! Q: Will the Auction House be fixed? A: We know the Auction House has some issues, and we definitely want to get those fixed up! Illegitimate items and poor performance are the biggest concerns that we aim to address. Q: Will there be new ninjas? A: We will have several player helpers in a similar role to the ninjas, who will be known by their Viking prefix. Q: Why aren’t you taking over the game yet? A: Players must be given a certain amount of time to opt out of the account transfer, as we are a third party to Zynga and there are many internal and external rules governing this type of acquisition. Q: Will you be re-releasing specific items? A: Unlikely, but we may create new variations of them. Q: What do I do if I want to tell you about a bug or an item I’d like to see created? A: Once the game is in our hands there will be a channel for sending these things to us. Posting in the forum is the best bet for right now! Q: We used to be YoVillians, what do we call ourselves now? A: That’s up to you! We’re interested to see what you come up with. Current office suggestions are YoWorldians, YoWos, YoYos and YoPeeps. Q: I have another question that you haven’t answered here. A: We will be doing a Q&A soon, so submit your questions to YWQandA@YoWorld.com and we’ll try our best to answer them! Details of when and where the Q&A will take place will be forthcoming. Please visit http://yoworld.com/ for information and updates going forward!

Scannews BBC Report: Boko Haram pays N500,000 to Niger recruits — Gang members *Basic question: Who funds the clerics who expend such huge sums on behalf of Boko Haram Boko Haram recruits members, not just from Nigeria, Cameroon and Chad, it also gets recr Read more ...
uits from Niger Republic who it pays N500, 000. However, their pay is raised should their bombs kill more people in Nigeria, the BBC has said. The teens, when they are enlisted, are given Tramol [an opiate drug], marijuana and alcohol. They break into houses for cash; sometimes beat people for money, and steal their animals for food. They gather again for their opium and drinks. Though the recruits, barely in their teens, do not like the sect and its activities, they said they took to violence as being students they have no jobs and are poor. The BBC documentary on Boko Haram, entitled ‘Niger hit by Nigeria’s Boko Haram fallout’ yesterday focused on young boys of a Niger Republic border town with Nigeria, Diffa. In their hangout, the gang explained their association with the sect. “They have paid 500,000 Nigerian naira ($3,085, £1,835) to those of us who followed them over there. The rest of us, here, we give them information. When they come, we inform them about what’s going on, what the security forces are up to. If they tell you to set off a bomb and it succeeds, if it kills a lot of people, they will pay you a lot of money,”one of the young men said. Five members of this gang in Diffa, near the border, have joined the group; two have since been killed on operations, he said. But the ideals for which Boko Haram is fighting – the imposition of strict Sharia, an Islamist caliphate and the banning of Western education – hold no interest for the gang, the report continued. One of the gang members said, “Boko Haram Islamist militants from Nigeria regularly come across the border, looking for recruits. We can’t contact them, they come to us.” The documentary showed about a dozen gang members in a tiny, dark room, built with local mud-bricks in the town, with a couple of home made stools and weights for them to exercise just outside the door. Already, Nigeria’s neighbouring countries – Niger, Cameroon and Chad – are fearful that the group’s insurgency may spill over to their borders. The Diffa government believes that the emergency rule in place in north-eastern states of Nigeria has not changed anything over the last year. “It has radicalised Boko Haram more than anything else and generated other gangs and groups of bandits,” one official said. Asked if they agree with Boko Haram’s reason for fighting, the gang answered in unison: “No. We only do it for the money.” The boys who do not share the Boko Haram ideology of opposing anything western, were reportedly in skinny jeans, bright coloured T-shirts and shiny chains – like those seen around the necks of American rappers on music videos. “Their attitude and brand new clothes make them stand out when they walk down the dusty streets of Diffa. The fashion style is clearly inspired by Western consumerism rather than Islamist militancy,” the report said. “The gang members agreed to talk to us on the condition that we would not reveal their identity. “We break into houses for cash; sometimes we beat people for money, we steal their animals so we can eat and then we gather up and take Tramol [an opiate drug], smoke ganja [marijuana] and drink alcohol,” one said. “We have no jobs; some of us are still at high school but we need money. Violence has become a form of work for us.” The young gang members also showed BBC a stash of machetes, knives, knuckle-dusters and traditional axes. They also claimed to have firearms and grenades but refused to show them. Boko Haram has also been attacking the Niger region, an official told the BBC, adding that several attacks allegedly planned by the sect on the country’s territory have been foiled over the last months; and dozens of men suspected to have links to the group have been arrested. Niger’s customs and national guards patrol along the porous border every day but the report said the Nigerian soldiers are yet to join the joint border patrols with their counterparts from Niger. The trading post of Krikri is seeing many Nigerians arrive seeking safety adding that some have relatives on the other side of the border. “We know that Boko Haram members come across the border, but we are watching them closely,” Diffa government representative Inoussa Saouna, says. “Just last December, we arrested two dozens of men – we believe they were planning to kidnap the regional governor, the military zone commander and myself.” Military police, customs officers, as well as national guards conduct daily patrols along the porous border to mitigate the threat, BBC said. “On paper, the border is supposed to be secured by joint patrols with soldiers from both countries. However, they have yet to start. “Niger’s security forces are receiving training, logistics and intelligence support from both the US and France. Most of the border between Niger and Nigeria is naturally drawn by the Komadougou Yobe River. Niger has a growing refugee crisis but without camps, which the authorities are reluctant to allow, fearing they could become new targets, or worse, recruitment centres for Boko Haram.

If you would like to see us be able to continue to save lives the way we have for over a year and some 3,000 saved cats, please make sure your voice is heard. Remember the shelter is taxpayer funded and the folks in charge are voted into office. Here are the email of the Hillsborough County Commissioners and the shelter management. As always, please keep your messages polite for your voice to be heard. Thank you for your support. We hope to continue saving lives as effectively as we have been.

d. A man found someone's car keys had been left behind, misplaced, on one of the counter's and shouted out so kindly, anyone forget there keys. Most of us reacted and shook or heads, as might be expected. The lady behind me was totally unresponsive, I thought perhaps she had not heard, so I nicely, and politely said to her if she had misplaced her keys, thinking I was being of assistance. WOW! WHAM! BAM! She "screams," yes "screams" at me NO. NO! If I had I would have said so!" I was initially knocked of beam and speechless, (yes, me, speechless) but not for long. All the customers and employees in the post office reacted the same way I did. I did my thing, deep breathes and counting to ten, but this time, just had to speak up and NICELY very nicely said "oh I do apologize, I thought I was helping, I thought you might not have heard the man." She responds, still screaming and shouting, "you not helping me, not one bit, you are annoying me!" Whew! I did not know where to look or put my face. For a fraction of a second, I wanted to rip her face off, but that soon passed in a nano second, my red alert button turned off, I calmed and realized that I needed to pray for this lost, perhaps even mentally off balance lady. When I did so, my head, heart and day just whistled along. Can you believe this? She is still in my mind and I am still praying.

Joseph MustangJoe Tanguay A Love Story...... This story begins around 1970-1971. A young man still somewhat fresh from a divorce of a previously failed marriage was introduced to a young woman that was also recently divorced. There were long nights of conversation, whe Read more ...
re thoughts and dreams, life events, and current events were spoken about. The relationship bloomed in a very short period of time. The young man was serving his country in the United States Navy, which required 3-6 month tours aboard an aircraft carrier called the U.S.S. Coral Sea. After a few weeks of meeting he had to embark on another tour. The young couple kept in constant contact daily through letters and later, cassette tapes of which they spoke to each other on. The young man returned home for a thirty day leave, which was spent mostly with the young woman. After thirty days, he had to embark on his last 6 month tour, but again the young couple kept in daily constant contact through mailing cassette tapes back and forth to each other. After returning home he was honorably discharged from the US Navy, with two purple hearts and a medal of valor for his time served in the Navy and two tours of Vietnam. The young man found work and asked the young woman to marry him, to which she said yes. They were married on March 22,1973 and moved into a small apartment and continued their life together. A short time after, the young woman was told she was pregnant, and the birth of their only son happened on December 28, 1973. There were two sons from the young man's previous marriage that lived with his ex-wife. The young woman had a daughter and son from her previous marriage that lived with her. There was only one child that was their's together. However, the young man always treated and loved the two that lived with them equally as his own. While the young woman was pregnant the couple started building a home across the street from a beautiful lake. After the home was built, the couple, the three kids, Grandpa (young man's father), and two dogs moved into the home. A few years had past along with a few jobs the young man held, and a lucrative business opportunity presented itself. The problem was the business opportunity involved relocating to Texas. After a very short conversation with the wife, the decision was made. The wife said simply, I would follow you anywhere, I will be behind you every step of the way to support whatever it is you feel nesecary to support our family. They left behind all family and friends to set out on their own journey of life together in January of 1978. By the time they sold their house and got to Texas, the business opportunity had completely fallen through and was almost in bankruptcy. The husband found work as a route sales/truck driver, the wife took up work at McDonald's. At some point along the way the husband started driving an 18 wheeler making 2-3 day runs chasing more money. Every night the husband would call without fail to say goodnight and I love you to his wife and kids. A little later, the husband went to the wife with a proposition, the opportunity presented itself to make even better money to support the family, but it involved over the road, long haul trucking. The wife did not like the idea, nor did the husband as it would involve 2-5 week trips being away from each other, and being away from his kids, with 5-7 days off in between runs. The couple decided, they had endured 6 months apart previously, what's 2-5 weeks? Again, the wife said I will be behind you every step of the way. The husband started long haul trucking in the early 1980's. He loved his job but hated the solitude and boniness of the road. Again, like before he called every single night without fail to make sure his wife and kids knew he missed them and loved them. Every single night they would say to each other "sleep well, sweet dreams, and I love you". Every conversation contained "I miss you". It wasn't out of habit, or obligation, it was real and out of true genuine love. Sometime in the early 1980's both of the two kids from the wife's previous marriage had moved out and started their own lives leaving the youngest as the only child. Through the years the wife had endured hurricanes, tornadoes, and many other problems by herself with the youngest child. But every single night, the calls still came and always ended with "sleep well, sweet dreams, and I love you". Even with both husband and wife working full time, the wife as the manager of a McDonald's, money was always hard to come by. There were never family vacations or nights out on the town, it was even very rare they could afford to eat out at a restaurant. So, they made the best of things, what they lacked financially they had way more of in each other, there were cookouts with neighbors, card playing, walks together, and once in a while the youngest would sleep at a friend's house and they would have a romantic night for just the two of them, even if they only ate hamburgers or hot dogs and beans, it didn't matter, they had each other. Instead of going out to a bar or Honkytonk to dance, they would buy a six pack, stay home and dance on the back porch till the wee hours. They made do and made the best of what they had together. Around the mid 1980's the couple decided it was time to move back home to Massachusetts. By this time the wife was a licensed Montessori school teacher and shortly after the move, the husband became an employee for the United States post office. After a year or two the husband was injured on the job resulting in early retirement. Later other health issues arose from being more sedentary including heart disease and diabetes. In 1991 the couple took their first ever vacation together after being married for 18 years. They set out on the road together, and took a month long road trip around the country. The husband had seen all these beautiful places that he could only tell the wife about on the phone for so many years. Now he had the chance to share them with her, to show them to her and experience them together. They stopped a few times to visit family members along the way. The wife described the vacation as the honeymoon that was 18 years in the making. The wife continued to work as a teacher and partially retired working part time at a local grocery store until about 1998. She was diagnosed with emphysema and COPD caused from years of smoking and could no longer be a reliable employee. From that point her health started to degrade, and as it got worse the husband was always there for her, doing whatever it was she needed him to do. All the while the both of them still showing each other the same vibrant love they have shared since day one. Still blowing each other kisses, holding hands, and a few hugs and kisses throughout the day. Every night they took advantage of all the nights they spent apart and never went to sleep without a goodnight kiss. The reasoning was simple, in case one or the other didn't wake up, the other would have a kiss goodbye. In 2007 the husband and the couple's son watched the wife/mother take her last breath. The husband would never be the same, a piece of him died that day with her, a piece of his soul. There is a term that is used alot these days, yet is really rarely experienced.....soul mate, that's what they were in every sense of the word. The husband fought to continue for the next few years, he was lonely, and lost without her. He tried to hide it and wear a smile and laugh, but you could see the pain and loss in his eyes. His heart finally gave up the fight in 2010 and he finally had the chance to be reunited with his "Sweetie". The couple always made the best of any situation, no matter how hard, and all along the way their love never wavered, never grew old or weak, it remained as young and vibrant as day one. If a problem arouse, they spoke about it, and came up with a solution. There was never cheating, lying,hitting,arguing, threats of one leaving the other, name calling, or even swearing at each other. If one didn't want to do something, the other made a sacrifice and vice versa. There was always compromise, always consideration for the other first and foremost. They very rarely had activities separately, they were each other's best friend. It was not always a 50/50 relationship, sometimes it was 70/30 one way or the other. It was not a give and take relationship, it was a give give relationship. The couple was a team,a united front in every aspect of life. Is this story a fairy tale? A dream? No!! It's as real as love gets!! 100% Real, true, honest to goodness Love. This is what love is about. Is it rare? yes! Is it the exception? yes! Was it real? You bet your ass!! This is a story about my parents Ron and Carole Tanguay, they were very real and so was their love for each other. They had a wonderful relationship and marriage that spanned 34 years and I felt the need to tell their story.

www.360nobs.com So you're sitting in front of your computer in the office and you're bored, waiting for work hours to end... Well, read this: Childhood was crazy. I believed really weird things when I was little. First, I used to think that God told my dad everyth Read more ...
ing I did. So if I did something wrong, I won't ask God for forgiveness but beg him not to report me to my dad. As for God, he only forgave our sins in church. I also used to think that sex was when adults laid on the bed and covered themselves with blankets until they slept. They didn't have to remove their clothes. Then I believed that women gave birth to girls and men gave birth to boys. Lol. My close friend believed hell fire had a chair for everyone and they would set your legs on fire and you would burn for a while and when it was too painful, they'll ask you to go out and cool off and come back later. You did this forever. When asked what 'forever' was, she said "twenty years?" Another friend of mine assumed that once a woman started her period, she kept bleeding until she died. She was scared to death to start hers. My sister used to think that sugarcane was sweet based on whatever the vendor put in it. She would chew on a sugarcane and say "this man did not put enough sugar in his own" I also believed that boys spread sperm everywhere and once you used their toilet or shared one with them you could get pregnant. I was so scared. Lastly, many of us in church believed that on judgment day God would play everyone's life movie, exposing our sins for all to watch. And we would all be in a straight line. My biggest worries were how long we all had to wait to watch all the movies since it was the whole world. And secondly, if my parents would be in the line before me, cos I didn't want them to watch mine. Hope you enjoyed the funny childhood beliefs. If you're bold enough, share yours. Don't be shy.

Nic Omnes All hope in society is not lost!!! Was just standing in line at mc Donald's and the nice older lady in front of me couldn't find her debit card nor did she have any cash. The young guy behind the counter excused himself for a minute and went to the Read more ...
back about thirty seconds later he came back asked the lady Nicely if she had found her card she said no that she might have left it at the post office cause she had it there last. So the young guy reached across the counter swiped his card then told the lady he took care of it for her and for her to enjoy her food!!! The would would not be such a bad place is we had more people like this. I hope people read this story and get inspired to do something nice for others who need a hand every now and then.

Big Viking Games
Dear YoVille Players, We are very pleased to announce that Big Viking Games has successfully negotiated the acquisition of YoVille! On May 12th, the game will go offline for roughly 24 hours while all the necessary information is transferred to us. Read more ...
When it comes back online, it will be in our hands and will be known as YoWorld from then on. In short: #SaveYoVille status: COMPLETE! This turn of events is without precedent, and it never could have happened without your endless support and campaigning. We are blown away by your love and devotion for the game, and the fact that you never gave up hope. You have truly shown us what the community is made of, and we at Big Viking Games are both proud and honored to be lucky enough to work with you in ushering in a new era of the game. So what does the future of YoWorld look like? We’ll go into more detail on this next, but the plan is simple: Make the game bigger and better. Fix the bugs and loopholes. Work with players to create exciting new content and features that everyone will love. The scope of taking over a living, breathing game like YoWorld, complete with over 6 years of history, is huge. Not just technologically, but also from a production standpoint. We’ve had many, many discussions on how to proceed, and we always come back to the same 3 core ideas – our YoValues. YoValue #1: Safe and Secure In order to run YoWorld successfully and make it a great experience for everyone, it is incredibly important to keep the game and its players free from exploitation. Not only will we devote a large amount of resources to moderation, but also to creating better systems to detect cheaters, give players better tools to avoid scams and hacked items, and more ability to deal with harassment. Exploits will be patched regularly, and we will ban players who take advantage of them. Real money trading is harmful to our ability to keep the game going, and will be dealt with appropriately. The Free Gift item issues are of particular focus, we and Zynga have collaborated to fix a major exploit with this already. A bug bounty program will also be put into place. The first person (and only the first one) to provide us with evidence of a particular working exploit and any reproduction steps will be rewarded with YoCash. Send any information you have to YWBugBounty@YoWorld.com. YoValue #2: Community Engagement Having a good working relationship with the YoWorld community is essential for us. We value your suggestions and feedback enormously, and we want to make sure we’re listening to you and giving you the ability to talk to us and vice versa. This doesn’t mean we can always give you everything you want, but your voice will definitely be heard and your feedback considered. The forums and product page will still be in place as before, but we will also introduce new, more direct channels for your feedback, including an active support staff, opinion polls, and more. YoValue #3: User Generated Experiences The thing that sets YoWorld apart from other games on Facebook is how so much of the fun in the game is created by the players, not the creators. We think that’s awesome, and want to add many new features, minigames and other exciting updates to make playing with others even better than before. One of the first things we’ll be doing is working to get an events system back into the game, as they were fantastic for user generated experiences. From there, we’ll be reviewing your suggestions on other things you wish were in the game to do with other players too. A big focus will be to get people coming back into the game that have stopped playing. YoWorld will be more fun with more people, and we’ll need your help! Spread the word, invite your friends, share this post! We know there will be many more questions, comments and concerns from players in the coming weeks, and we’ve created a brief FAQ list below to answer a few we’ve anticipated. We will also be hosting a Question & Answer event at a later date, where Greg Thomson (creator of YoVille) and other members of the YoWorld team will be on hand to answer questions. Details of this to follow. You can pre-submit your questions by sending an email to YWQandA@YoWorld.com Once again, thank you for all of your continued support, and welcome to the Big Viking Games family. It’s going to be fun! - The YoWorld Team Anticipated Frequently Asked Questions: Q: Will the forums be transferred? A: We will be setting up a new community space for YoWorld players to interact outside of the game. Q: Do I need to do anything to transfer to YoWorld. A: No. Your details will be transferred to us automatically UNLESS you fill out Zynga’s account deletion form. Q: Do I need to fill out the Account Deletion Form? A: Fill this out ONLY if you want your YoWorld account to be deleted permanently instead of transferred to Big Viking Games. Q: Will events be turned back on? A: Yes. We will be rebuilding the event technology to allow players to host events once again! Q: Why change the name from YoVille to YoWorld? A: It was a necessary step in being able to obtain the game, but it also speaks to our goal of making the game bigger and better than ever before! Q: Will we keep our apartments and avatars etc? A: Absolutely. Q: What about FG items? A: Free Gift items that were created by hackers will be removed if possible, and we aim to stop any more of these items from entering the game. Q: What about unreleased items? A: If we can identify and remove them, we will. We will need your help on this! Q: What will you do about the hackers? A: We will get rid of the exploits and take necessary action against players who take advantage of other players and the game. Q: What new things will you introduce to YoWorld? A: We will focus on fixing what already exists, as well as adding exciting new features and content. Player suggestions will make a huge difference in what we do, so let’s see what we can come up with! Q: Will the Auction House be fixed? A: We know the Auction House has some issues, and we definitely want to get those fixed up! Illegitimate items and poor performance are the biggest concerns that we aim to address. Q: Will there be new ninjas? A: We will have several player helpers in a similar role to the ninjas, who will be known by their Viking prefix. Q: Why aren’t you taking over the game yet? A: Players must be given a certain amount of time to opt out of the account transfer, as we are a third party to Zynga and there are many internal and external rules governing this type of acquisition. Q: Will you be re-releasing specific items? A: Unlikely, but we may create new variations of them. Q: What do I do if I want to tell you about a bug or an item I’d like to see created? A: Once the game is in our hands there will be a channel for sending these things to us. Posting in the forum is the best bet for right now! Q: We used to be YoVillians, what do we call ourselves now? A: That’s up to you! We’re interested to see what you come up with. Current office suggestions are YoWorldians, YoWos, YoYos and YoPeeps. Q: I have another question that you haven’t answered here. A: We will be doing a Q&A soon, so submit your questions to YWQandA@YoWorld.com and we’ll try our best to answer them! Details of when and where the Q&A will take place will be forthcoming. Please visit http://yoworld.com/ for information and updates going forward!

Rosie del Valle I have been receiving many emails in regards to the SMART LIPO procedure and other “plastic surgery” options available. I am so flattered that many think I have done it all! :)) I am sorry to say, “NOT YET”… But in all honesty I will share, Read more ...
as I always have the amazing journey SmartLipo began for me in 2009. My doctor is Dr. Scott Carlson, from Carlson Laser Aesthetics and he is also my overall wellness doctor, so for me it’s a one stop shop! Dr. Carlson and his staff can answer many of the questions you may have on the procedure and consultations are available by calling his office. I am writing this status as a means to avoid answering the overwhelming # of emails and messages I received this past week. I DO NOT believe Smartlipo is for everyone. I DO believe it is the beginning of a journey. It is a commitment you make with yourself. A mental change. In the month of May, Carlson Laser will be on 8West and I will be part of the segment sharing my experience. We will post on FB. Carlson Laser Aesthetics: 616.363.3640. Thank you for the messages and the trust. – Much love ya’ll!

Stamping Out Loud We've had some MAJOR issues with a few batches of mail. Come to find out, that we dropped off an entire tub of small priority mail boxes (possibly 2 tubs) in the drive up blue mail box (right in front of our towns major post office) about a month a Read more ...
nd a half ago and those packages never made it inside. They never got checked in. Since they were priority, we tried to file a claim and it was denied because they were never checked in. We reshipped everyone's order as fast as we could but what irks me is that there is a thief that actually works at the post office. There are apparently no cameras. We are out of aprox. $2500 in merchandise/$1600+ in insurance claims. We had to pay our employees again to make the pieces because some jerk thought he would steal our packages. My husband uses that blue box because he's partially handicap and it's very hard for him to get out of the car and go inside. So now, he is having to bring in 50-100 packages and stand there to have them scanned before he leaves because we can't trust that this won't happen again. We had paypal claims, angry customers, and all because we were scratching our heads trying to figure it all out. So, this is a formal apology to all that were affected. Please use this as a warning for your own local USPS. And share so others are aware too. Thanks

Ojealaro Friday THERE IS NO FACTION BUT A LONE DISSIDENT IN JOSLA WHO HAVE BEEN BOOTED OUT... Josla remains one indivisible family under the leadership of the national/chief coordinator which is my humble self.
Photos from Ojealaro Friday's post in OFFICIAL FACEBOOK PAGE OF THE GROUP JONATHAN SHALL LEAD AGAIN ( JOSLA)
FROM THE CHIEF/NATIONAL COORDINATOR'S DESK CLEARING THE AIR In light of recent events pertaining to this august body, I am constrained to come out plainly and set the records straight. A National offices The only recognizable offi Read more ...
ces adopted at the 30th November,2013 inaugural meeting in Abuja are; =National coordinator and it's deputy =National secretary and it's assistant =National Publicity Secretary and it's deputy =National Director of Organization and it's deputy = National Mobilization Director and it's assistant = National Treasurer and it's assistant = National Financial Secretary and it's assistant = National woman mobilizer and it's deputy = Six geopolitical Zones Coordinators who are de facto assistant National Coordinators in the national executive = National Director of public complaints( Ombudsman/Provost) = All continental and Diaspora Coordinators = Josla political ambassadors = 6 ex officio 1 each from the zones = All state coordinators NOTE: The above offices are to be duplicated in the Zones,states,Senatorial Zones and Local Government areas. FURTHER NOTE: No office was designated as NATIONAL CONVENER B JOSLA Facebook page After November 30th last year, we decided to adopt the Facebook page of GOODLUCK JONATHAN,2015-2019 as our official page to use for dissemination of information and social media interactions. This page was opened by Anthony Eromosele with his Facebook account. In December he started misinterpreting this harmless gesture by going about and making utterances that he owned Josla and every other member was invited to " come and chop with him" This attitude did not go down well with all the zonal coordinators and national officers including myself. We decided to abandoned his page and establish a page that bears our name. We jettison the idea when peace was brokered and he was warned to stop saying he owns a group with voluntary members and not items or objects. Another condition for peace was that all national officers of josla having agreed to use his page must be made admins of the Facebook page which he grudgingly accepted He stopped for a while but started again. We later discovered that his problem is psychological. Being a Tailor( euphemistically fashion and designer) with a maximum secondary school education, he feels inferior and insecured in the midst of highly educated men and women that made up josla. Despite my announcement that Zones and states are semi autonomous in certain respect and no national officer has the right to interfere in their affairs without express authorization, he started going round the states and asking them to give him loyalty as National Convener. He caused problems in delta state and they changed the name of the structure there. He caused problems in South West and having been pitching some officers against some there. All these complaints became to much and I called him to desist from them. He took offence and started saying that we must be answerable to him or the we leave josla for him. I reminded him that Josla was formally born in November last year. The person who suggested we should convene was not him but the erstwhile National Secretary Abubakar Baffa. I hosted the event with some assistant from the South South coordinator Marvin Omo-Osagie. If we really intended to print cards for the Abuja meeting, we would have used Baffa's name as convener or use the name of the key members calling for the meeting. That is not all he has been doing. He comes to that page most often and would post policy statements that the national executive is not even aware of. He threatened some officers in the south west that he is the alpha and Omega of josla and he can remove anybody he wants. It is even rumoured that he exploited the naive ones financially. NOTE: The Facebook page of Anthony Irabor is Goodluck Jonathan 2015-2019 and does not read Josla and ipso facto not the same thing as Josla. He has made it clear that the page is for people he called to come and "follow him chop" whatever that means. ALSO NOTE; Josla as a body is note a Facebook affair body a body concrete with structures across the country and worldwide. FURTHER NOTE; It was yours sincerely who christened the group JOSLA not anybody STILL NOTE; Our certificates addressed to me by Gulak the Presidential political adviser bears Josla not Goodluck Jonathan 2015-2019 CURRENT EVENT The zonal coordinators and the national exco took a decision to create josla official Facebook group and leave Tony's page for him. Hence we are here. He has removed the national officers as admins of his page and posted a very ridiculous post on his page that " The leadership of josla has dissolve the national and zones executive" can you beat that? Is there a leadership above the official leadership of the group headed by my humble self. Please, I have elected not to join issues with him because that would make it appear we have factions. We don't. All the zonal coordinators who constituted their state Excos are here. The national officers are here. Tony alone is not here. DECISIONS The president is making his formal declaration next month in port harcourt. All the heads and leaders of registered Pro-Jonathan group are to meet with Gulak next week for deliberation on how to mobilize to the venue of declaration. Once I receive the letter of participation which has been promised us, I will escalate it here for all to see. Not that the whole thing is getting very interesting and about to be rewarding, the devil has decided to use somebody to sow discord in our group. We cannot allow that hence it is pertinent we take the following decisions: ** Anthony Eromosele Irabor is hereby suspended for anti-group activities pending such a time as the national exco deem feel satisfied that he has sufficiently purged himself as to be re admitted back to the fold. Based on the above, we shall appoint an acting Director of organization. All the coordinators are to share this message on the various Facebook branches of Josla and ensure that their members come over to this group without prejudice to their voluntary rights to so do Our Website which is being developed by our America Coordinator/Media consultant-Ralph Ralph Odua is almost ready. Finally, it is apposite to point out that Josla is formed mainly to promote the reelection of President Jonathan and to realize that aim. In course of doing this, we hope to promote ourselves to national and rewarding political reckoning. If along the way we get other material and financial benefits, then we should give glory to God. Thank you for taking time to read this. Please, assist in ignoring the typos and bad grammars..lol JOSLA !!!!!! ALL HANDS ON DECK !!!!! — with Prince Olalekan Kolawole and 7 others.

Kenneth T Whalum Jr Just wrapped interview with Commercial Appeal's Opinion Editor Jerome Wright so they can decide who they're going to endorse ~> -___- One of the things he asked - and I quote - was: "What's your reaction to the people who say, 'WHALUM' wouldn't ma Read more ...
ke a good County Mayor because he doesn't have the ability to 'build consensus' with the people he'd have to work with, like the County Commission"? My answer - and I quote - was: "That's the position of a LOSER who doesn't want a FREE man who's an independent thinker in the Mayor's office. The Mayor's job is not to build consensus with the County Commission. The Mayor's job is to manage the resources of the county, and direct those resources in a manner that benefits the masses of the people rather than a privileged few millionaires." Another question he asked: "Why are you running for Mayor?" My answer: "Because I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired of the corruption and waste, and I think the majority of voters agree with me." As IF the Commercial Appeal would EVER endorse my candidacy for ANY office on ANY day other than the day HELL FREEZES OVER! #ManPlease ATTENTION those who haven't voted yet: The "establishment" is running scared to death. Look who's endorsing who. They're the very SAME ones who supported the SURRENDER of our children's schools, and they're the very SAME ones who supported trying to get YOU to pay higher sales taxes so rich folks could get a tax BREAK. Please don't go for the OkieDoke. If your reason for not voting for me is because you don't LIKE me, you should be ashamed of yourself.

SWAIA - Santa Fe Indian Market As SWAIA artist Cliff Fragua referenced, SWAIA - Santa Fe Indian Market brings Native arts to the world by inspiring artistic excellence, fostering education, and creating meaningful partnerships. Thank you Cliff for sharing your passion for SWAIA a Read more ...
nd telling your story, “Friendships and business relationships are formed and last for years. Artists and their art are recognized. This is what makes the Santa Fe Indian Market one of the best event in the world.”
Cliff Fragua
With all the opinions that have been posted here on Facebook, I feel like I need to voice mine. I respect everyone's opinions and their feelings on the SWAIA/Torres-Nez issue. So this isn't written to downcast anyone. We all pretty much know when a Read more ...
nd why the SWAIA organization began. I would say that due to the efforts taken by the New Mexico Association for Indian Affairs when the Bursam Bill was proposed in the US Senate in 1922, my sculpture studio would not be where it is located today, much less my home. The land might been in the hands of some non-Pueblo owner if the bill had passed. The Native people in this area, particularly the Pueblo people, have ties with the SWAIA organization since it's inception. The focus of the organization then was to assist the Native people with legal, economic, and educational programs. Later the focus shifted towards economic and educational opportunities for native artists and the public. Throughout SWAIA's history, finances has play a big role in it's efforts to provide the economic opportunities. As with many organization, it's a struggle, especially in today's economy, to operate and keep the programs running. When I first served on the SWAIA Board of Directors, the first item on the agenda at my very first board meeting was the renewal of the Executive Director's contract. After the votes were cast, half of the board members resigned and walked out of that meeting. Nevertheless, the remaining board members faced a $375,000 debt that had to be paid to keep the doors open. The board became a working board then and had to assume the task and responsibilities of the office but over time the debt was paid off. I applaud the efforts of the key players on that board. It was the board's fiduciary responsibility. Some people don't know this, but the main responsibilities of the board members are fundraising and setting and implementing policies. SWAIA has seen many issues and conflicts over the years. Board members come and go, staff come and go, but the organization still remains. Currently, it's an organization that is focusing on the business of providing the opportunities for the artist to sell their work. If you will, please have a chance to read the SWAIA Mission Statement. I support the efforts to provide the opportunity for Native artists to be successful at this big event of the summer. But it's up to the artists to make that effort to be successful. As artists, we know that. We know the business of art. In the end, our families are provided with the essentials, our art and business progresses and the folks who purchase our works are happy for what they've bought and for meeting the artists. Friendships and business relationships are formed and last for years. Artists and their art are recognized. This is what makes the Santa Fe Indian Market one of the best event in the world. Ok, after much thoughts and prayers, I came to my own decision. I supported John Torres Nez's position and I was hoping for some resolution to his resignation. In fact, I was one of the first to change my FaceBook profile photo in support of John. But it looks like there will be no resolution as far as this issue is concerned. However, the recent efforts to organize a new show has unsettled me and I cannot support it if it is held during the same weekend as the Indian Market. However, I will support John if the event is held during another time in the year. If John does continue his efforts to have his show during the Indian Market weekend, good luck to him and I wish him success. But SWAIA has so many competition from all the other shows and all the other events that piggybacks on the Indian Market. What upsets me is the lack of support from the City of Santa Fe and the business community. They all can't wait for the economic benefits of Indian Market but are not willing to help the organization with financial donation and support except for a few sponsors. Not even the New Mexico Governor office is willing to help. This organization brings in millions of dollars to Santa Fe and New Mexico and what benefits are in return? A few more traffic lights and parking meters? Hotels won't even offer discounts to artists for the weekend...sad. Even us as artists we lack in that area as far as support. There is only ten paid membership from artists? That's crazy! Yes, we paid for our booth fee, application fees, made art donations but we have not really paid for membership. I am guilty of that. However I have made significant donations of my sculptures for fundraising and it has brought in some good money for the organization. At one point, I had a high level membership because of the significant amount that the donation brought in but that membership is not current. So, donation and membership is on my list for this Indian Market. What about you? Oh by the way, SWAIA, what about an Artist Level Membership? I base my marketing decision on what opportunities there are for the year and how successful the shows have been. I come up with my own marketing strategy and work my butt off to make it happen. Sometimes it's not always successful but we all know how tough it can be. We work hard to make it happen because we know that it just doesn't always fall into your lap. But, I have a long relationship with SWAIA and I appreciate the opportunity it has offered me in the past to become successful with my art. I've been involved with SWAIA on both the board and committee level. I've seen the ins and outs of what is behind the scenes. SWAIA faces many challenges and I've participated in many of the decisions that were voted on to keep the organization operating. I would rather see the SWAIA Board of Directors stand and face certain accusations and challenges. I want to see honesty and integrity from the board. I don't want transparency, if I did I'd buy Saran Wrap, but rather courage to admit to mistakes or shortfall. Also, courage to ask for help, we as artists can come together to help in anyway we can. Letters of appeal should go out to artists, after a successful show, we're more incline to make a donation if we have a good show. Give us an Artist Membership Level, as mention earlier, so we can help the organization in that manner. To the artists, let's not make it an us versus them issue. I make my decision based on what's good for me and my business and my art, as well as for my clients and family. I will not criticize my fellow artists for their decision as to what show they wish to do. They also know what's best for them and their family and art. Many SWAIA artists have a long and standing relationship with the organization and it goes back to longtime family support. Do not cast them negatively. The issue concerning the board....it is comprised of a majority of 9 Native members, none of whom has resigned from the board. Of the 9, there are 5 working SWAIA artists. I have faith in them to represent me as an artist if it comes down to it. The one thing I see and impress me is that the board is sticking together. I haven't seen any board member resign, not like my first board meeting. Others may not feel the same way as me but I am giving the board members a chance to make good and righteous decisions. SWAIA has been in tougher situations in the past. It's always pulled through. Many people have came and went but everyone who has helped and been involved did so with love for the organization. I love you all and you'll remain as my friends and I won't delete you based on your decisions. We all have a vested interest in the Native Art market and do our best to offer it to the world as a solid, legitimate, viable, and living art. Your best artist buddy, Cliff
