Previously convicted Bill Cosby is now a free man. According to the state of Pennsylvania and its highest court, the former legendary comedian is set to be released from prison tonight after the discovery of a secret deal that prosecutors had made with him. The deal appears to be credible as a judge has now ruled that his case and sentence be immediately vacated and cannot be brought against him in the future. According to what is understood, the agreement comes from former Montgomery County official Brian Caster who forced Cosby into a deposition in 2005. In exchange for going into that deposition, prosecutors at the time agreed to never levy charges against Cosby no matter the odds of what was discovered against him. PA 's Supreme Court ultimately ruled that by the refusa...

Mo’Nique just doesn’t know when to actually shut up and that is the real problem here

Because bonnet shaming was one thing but body shaming an innocent Black woman at the airport is where the line should be drawn. THe woman who we won't identify or actually post here was featured on her Instagram in a post that claimed that women in the community should do better. Of course in typical Mo'Nique fashion the post apparently was unprovoked and "sent to her" as an example of what is going on in the community. It is unclear why Mo'Nique felt the need to use a woman's photo that was probably unaware it was taken in the first place.

AOC claims the rise in violence is nothing to worry about and is instead “hysteria”

One thing is for certain and two things are for sure AOC might be crazy and crime in places like New York City is off the charts. But according to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Bronx Congresswoman known for her progressive firebrand politics --- the crime spree is nothing more than hysteria being created. Hysteria as it is unclear exactly how she came to such a conclusion. In a zoom chat with fellow Congressperson Jamal Bowman (D), AOC claimed that the problem is hysteria and that she hopes that it doesn't further turn into that almost completely downplaying all forms of crime in the city. New York City for example has seen so much crime lately -- an innocent Marine was shot in Times Square with his family among several other instances of violent crime. Perhaps unemployment; ...

The pandemic eviction ban in America is ending next month, here’s what you need to know (like right now)

A pandemic inspired eviction ban in the United States is poised to come to an end next month but not without much public discussion. This week the United States Supreme Court ruled against a group of landlords that had hoped their ruling would cease the moratorium and allow them to move forward with waves of evictions. The court rejected the idea given that the eviction ban is set to expire next month, and, within that month states would have just enough time to allocate federally allocated monies towards eviction funds in their jurisdictions. On Tuesday, SCOTUS voted 5-4 to leave the ban in place in an effort to provide states 30 extra days to sufficiently disperse billions in emergency rental funds (granted people can actually get through the endless bureaucratic red tape.)

We took a look at the Klover “cash advance” app because a reader asked about it, you should probably beware

Editors note: Klover as it is called is a finance app that as you might've guessed gifts people instant small cash loans in between pay checks. This month -- a reader from Detroit Michigan asked us to take a look at the app and determine if it was okay to use after they had discovered that it seemed a tad spammy. Our social media team did in fact take look and we have determined that you should probably avoid the app wholeheartedly. As an app, the app is eerily similar to that of Earnin and so on. The concept of the app is to "float" people small amounts of money which are automatically debited upon repayment dates set automatically at the time of the initial loan. The problem with the Klover App, (aka Klover Financial) is that it does not actually tell you that your ability to...

How to use Affirm or Klarna to shop anywhere (even if the store doesn’t normally partner with them)

These days you've probably heard of apps like Klarna; Affirm, Quadpay and so on. When they first came out the apps were limited to a small number of stores but now largely can be used virtually anywhere. Affirm is probably the most glamorous of the apps simply because it generally gives you far larger limits than the others, though Klarna and Quadpay are quicker and more efficient for smaller purchases. Most of these shopping apps work pretty much the same way even if a store doesn't directly partner with them. The only one that a store has to partner with for it to work is actually Afterpay.

California has added 5 more places to its no travel list

As California ramps up its efforts to protect LGBTQ+ residents and others, the state has effectively added onto its no travel list. According to the government, the state's state-funded travel ban list now includes Arkansas, Florida, Montana, North Dakota, and West Virginia. This means that no public; state, or any other related funds may be used to travel to the states on said list over their laws blatantly discriminating against those on the LGBTQ+ spectrum.  Assembly Bill 1887 bars state entities from requiring employees to travel to states on the list, and bars California from approving state-funded or state-sponsored travel to those places, though exemptions do exist for things like travel that is necessary to maintain grant funding or licensure, or to protect public health. ...
