#SayWhatNews - Obama Plans For Retirement - Florida State QB Cleared - Birth Control For Men - Spanish Banned From School

Obamas Plans For Retirement - We all know how big of a sports fan Obama is and he let us know how real it was during a speech at a Dreamworks Animation camp. After talking about a variety of topics including piracy and the issues in Iran he looked over at the Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company, Robert Iger and said “At least I know what I want to do when I retire . . . host ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 list.”

Florida State QB Cleared Of Rape Charges - The quarter back for Florida State University, Jameis Winston, will not be arrested in relation to the rape charges that were brought against him last year.I told you guys about this case a while back. The accuser alleged that Winston raped her at a party but admitted that she had been drinking at the time of the incident and said that she didn’t remember much. They did performed a DNA test and found his DNA on her, but the prosecutor on the case said “We have a duty as prosecutors to only file ... charges if we have a reasonable likelihood of a conviction. We did not feel we could meet that burden.” Winston was happy with the ruling because he asserted all along that the sexual encounter was consensual. The Tallahassee Police Department now has plans to release more details of the investigation now that the case is closed. 

 

Woman Live Tweets - A Vancouver woman was going about her day yesterday when she unknowingly live-tweeted her husband’s death. 40 year old Caran Johnson is described as a “scanner junkie” who makes it a habit of tweeting news and updates that she hears over a police scanner. Yesterday afternoon she heard a report about a car that had collided head on with another vehicle. She tweeted “I hate that section of I205 S. Too many on ramps, speeders and too few lanes” “this accident sounds horrible” “LifeFlight (an emergency response helicopter) is standing down… They said they are so close to SWWMC (Southwest Washington Medical Centre), they can take the patient there, instead of Lifeflight.” Heavy into her tweets she started to get worried because her husband was not responding to her phone calls and he usually took that stretch of the highway home from work. She called his job that told her he left early because he was feeling faint. Once a death was reported from the crash she tweeted “I'm trying not to panic, but my husband left work early and he drives 205 to get home. He's not answering his phone” “I just called 911 and they transferred me after I gave them his license number and told me that they will call me back. wtf?” “And now my kids are home from school” “He’s the one I go to for things like this …”. When she finally got news that it was her husband that pass she tweeted “It’s him…he died.” Johnson was the only fatality in the crash- the other driver was taken to the hospital and is in critical condition.

Possible Male Birth Control - They are trying to figure out how to block the sperm from even coming out. Lol. They are playing with a pill that would stop ejaculation. They are still testing this out though and its going to take years and years before they get it together.

Texas Principle Banned Spanish? - The principle of Hempstead Middle School in Texas, Amy Lacy, has been placed on leave after students accused her of banning the entire student body from speaking Spanish. Lacy reportedly banned the language to “prevent disruptions”. The school district wanted to make it very clear to the parents that this was not a district policy and sent a letter home which in part said, “neither the district or any campus has any policy prohibiting the speaking of Spanish.” One student said, “She was like no speaking Spanish. I was like that’s my first language. She said, well you can get out.” Another commented “People don’t want to speak it no more, and they don’t want to get caught speaking it because they’re going to get in trouble.” The school district spokesperson announced that the principle has been put on paid leave and will remain on it until the investigation surrounding the allegations is completed. She added “The district is committed to efficiently and effectively resolving this matter with as little disruption to our students and their learning environment as possible.”

 

Obama New White House Member - The Obama’s dog Sunny got a little too excited at an event that was showcasing the White House’s 2013 holiday decorations. During his excitement he jumped on a little girl named Ashtyn Gardner of Alabama while she was doing some arts and crafts with the other kids. Michelle Obama made sure that the little girl was okay followed by Sunny who apologized with a kiss on her nose.  It’s the cutest picture ever. Check out the pic here.
