More than 40 people were taken to hospital — three with serious injuries — after the floor caved in at a packed concert in an Abbotsford, B.C, church late Fridaynight.
“We were dancing in the front of the stage,” Kyle Weber, a teenager who was at the Christian rock concert, told CBC News. “The floor just collapsed. All the speakers just fell down [and] crashed a lot of people…. A lot of people fell through the floor.” At least 23 people were sent to MSA Hospital in Abbotsford, while 16 people were diverted to nearby hospitals in Mission, Chilliwack and Langley, local health officials told CBC News late Friday night. Two more were taken to Vancouver General Hospital. Read the rest of this entry »

“This is embarrassing. It’s disgusting. It makes me mad as hell,” Ed Frawley said of the building where his son, Sgt. Jeff Frawley, had to live upon his return this month from a 15-month deployment to Afghanistan. Frawley said Monday that Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Dick Cody called him to say he shares Frawley’s anger and that “there’s no excuse.” Cody said he would not want his own sons or any troops to return to such conditions, Frawley said.
Frawley’s 10-minute video shows still photos from throughout the building, which appears to be falling apart and filled with mold and rust.
1 Thessalonians 2:17-3:5 (NLT)
17 Dear brothers and sisters, after we were separated from you for a little while (though our hearts never left you), we tried very hard to come back because of our intense longing to see you again. 18 We wanted very much to come to you, and I, Paul, tried again and again, but Satan prevented us. 19 After all, what gives us hope and joy, and what will be our proud reward and crown as we stand before our Lord Jesus when he returns? It is you! 20 Yes, you are our pride and joy. 1 Finally, when we could stand it no longer, we decided to stay alone in Athens, 2 and we sent Timothy to visit you. He is our brother and God’s co-worker in proclaiming the Good News of Christ. We sent him to strengthen you, to encourage you in your faith, 3 and to keep you from being shaken by the troubles you were going through. But you know that we are destined for such troubles. 4 Even while we were with you, we warned you that troubles would soon come-and they did, as you well know. 5 That is why, when I could bear it no longer, I sent Timothy to find out whether your faith was still strong. I was afraid that the tempter had gotten the best of you and that our work had been useless.
The documentary is unflinching. “The Caribou will graze for hundreds of miles, and the wolf will starve if he doesn’t find them.” The Caribou are almost reindeer like, at any moment expecting them to be called up to work for Santa. They eat grass and walk, and there are hundreds of them. The video speeds up and slows down and one can’t help but taken in by the majesty of it all. But the wolf is not forgotten. “The Wolf is finally found some fresh tracks.” The Caribou take off in fear of being dinner. From tranquility to terror in only a moment; the giant herd scatters as the narrator explains, “The weak and the young are left behind.” In seconds the camera shots goes from many caribou, to one young animal and one wolf. I wonder what it feels like to be hunted. It was everything I could do to not scream at my TV, “RUN!!!!”. The wolf did not go hungry. Read the rest of this entry »

So… I’d be very interested to hear what people think about this, especially considering how much of a stance she has taken against the Lohan, Spears, and other young starlets who are potentially ruining their careers. Not only that, but she is extremely open about her faith in Christ.

Miley Cyrus issued a statement exclusively to PEOPLE on Sunday, apologizing for a series of playfully provocative photos that circulated on the Internet last week, as well as those from a racy, as-yet unreleased Vanity Fair photo shoot in which she appears to be nude.
The singer, 15, tells PEOPLE: “My goal in my music and my acting is always to make people happy. For Vanity Fair, I was so honored and thrilled to work with Annie [Leibovitz]. I took part in a photo shoot that was supposed to be ‘artistic’ and now, seeing the photographs and reading the story, I feel so embarrassed.” Read the rest of this entry »
What do all ya’ll think of this?
By FRAZIER MOORE, AP Television Writer Thu Apr 24, 10:14 PM ET
NEW YORK (AP) — Jimmy Fallon appears to be inching closer to Conan O’Brien’s “Late Night” chair. For months, Fallon has been widely considered the top choice to succeed O’Brien when he steps down next year. On Thursday, published reports said Fallon has signed, or soon will sign, a deal with NBC.
NBC had no comment Thursday on the stories by The Hollywood Reporter and Variety. The network had been expected to announce its choice of host within the next few weeks, possibly at its May 12 presentation for advertisers.
A former regular on “Saturday Night Live,” Fallon, 33, would take over sometime next year as host of the 12:30 a.m. talk show. O’Brien is to replace Jay Leno on NBC’s “Tonight” show, aired at 11:30 p.m. each weeknight.
Fallon taking over “Late Night” is the only part of this talk-show turnover that remained in any doubt. The succession plan at the “Tonight” show, including Leno’s departure, was announced by NBC in 2004. But as long ago as last summer, NBC late-night boss Rick Ludwin was quoted as saying that Fallon “is at the top of our short list.”
