Michael Jackson's Close Friend Auctions MJ's Sunglasses to Raise Money for Charity

buzzz worthy. . .

     
Very few of Michael Jackson's personal belongings have ever been sold. To raise money for charity, MJ's close friend Omer Bhatti is now auctioning off a pair of Michael Jackson's sunglasses from his Dangerous World Tour. The last time (2011) a pair of MJ's glasses were sold, the winning bid landed at $60K.

Omer Bhatti was 11 when he first met his idol Michael Jackson, and soon after he moved to Neverland with his mom and dad to live with The King of Pop. For the next nine years Omer and Michael lived, worked and toured together, and Omer and Michael's biological children are as close as siblings.

Omer has always kept his close relationship with Michael Jackson very private and has never sold either stories or items, but to raise money for charity he is now auctioning off one of his cherished belongings: the sunglasses MJ wore almost daily during his Dangerous World Tour. These are not stage glasses, but Michael's private glasses that he wore while on the move.
"When I was 15, my mom suffered from a serious stroke that turned our lives upside down. Sunnaas Rehabilitation Hospital in Norway helped her get her life back, and by donating these glasses, I want to raise as much money as possible to support their amazing work."

Omer's mom Pia was the nanny of Michael's children while the Bhatti family lived at Neverland, and Omer's decision to sell the glasses has been blessed by the Jackson family with whom he remains very close. The family has a policy not to sell any of MJ's personal belongings, but support this donation.

Michael Jackson's sunglasses are sold using the Snapsale app. Snapsale offers everyone the opportunity to sell their stuff fast and hassle free. For Michael Jackson's sunglasses, the latest bid is stated as the current price.
"Everyone can take part in the auction by placing a bid using Snapsale. I wouldn't be where I am doing what I love if it hadn't been for Michael, and my mom wouldn't have been here if it hadn't been for Sunnaas Hospital."
To place a bid, install the Snapsale app and search for either Omer or Michael Jackson.
About Snapsale
Snapsale (www.snapsale.com) is a free app for buying and selling things on mobile devices. It applies image recognition technology, boosting on Google Ads, hashtags and instant chat for quick and effortless spread and communication between seller and buyer.

Details at a glance on VA Journalists killed in live broadcast

buzzz worthy. . .

A disgruntled former news reporter shot two young journalists during a live WDBJ-TV segment this morning in Moneta, Virginia and later killed himself. 

Reporter Alison Parker, 24 was conducting an interview that cameraman Adam Ward, 27 was capturing when Vester Lee Flanagan fatally shot them.  The subject of the interview was also shot, but survived with critical injuries.

Both Adam and Alison were native to the area and were beloved members of the TV staff.
Also known as Bryce Williams, the alleged shooter was from Oakland, CA and had previously worked in Florida and  for WDBJ-TV as a reporter two years ago, but was apparently terminated. 

Tweets that were posted to the Twitter account under the name Bryce Williams and a suicide manifesto letter he sent to ABC news suggest the murders were racially motivated.   ABC said the Charleston church massacre sent the suspect  over the edge.

While  there are still many questions about the tragedy, have emerged:


Video posted to the Facebook page of Bryce Williams on August 26.  The account was suspended by Facebook.


  • The shooter was mistakenly reported as dead from a self-inflicted gun shout wound but did not die at the point of apprehension. Bryce Williams died from suicide at the hospital this afternoon.

  • There are two videos that captured the execution.  One is the live video, the other was posted on FB from the shooters point of view.

  • On twitter comments under the account in the name Bryce Williams explained why he targeted the victims.

  • Williams was new to Twitter, having opened an account two weeks ago.

  • According to CNN, Williams was escorted by police when fired form the station because he was expected to act out.  Former co-workers said he yelled at work.

  • ABC news has a over 20 page manifesto that they released to authorities for investigation purposes.


  • WBDJ opened a feed to its noon news cast, dedicating it to the memory of the slain employees.  Station President Ken Marks said he did not suspect Williams had an issue with his former co-workers.
Both Adam and Alison were in serious relationships with other employees at the station bringing a deeper sense of mourning an loss to the station.  Funeral details will be posted when they become available.

Two African American Ivy leaguers create new social media app, weCliq

buzzz worthy. . .

Brown University alumni Robert Gillett and Marc Howland alongside Harvard University graduate Adam Demuyakor have officially completed the beta launch of the latest social mobile app, weCliq.

weCliq is an innovative and interactive app that enables users to connect and meet with other local and surrounding individuals and/or groups, putting networking, meeting and dating right at everyone’s finger tips.
 
“The concept is very simple. Snap a photo. Match with others nearby. Meet up now. Our app promotes the spontaneous nature of life by using live photos as the means of connecting,” says co-founder Robert Gillett, whose post college career as a professional football player in Europe helped him come up with the app’s premise. 
 
The iOS app (Android is scheduled for a late September release date) is a real-time social networking tool that allows users to interact with others in their vicinity through a simple photo. With key features like facial recognition and self-deleting photos, weCliq ensures that users are interacting with real people without leaving a trace. 
 
After weCliq earned first place out of over one hundred new startup entries in the Startup Weekend Orange County Hackathon in 2014, Gillett recruited fellow Brown classmate Marc Howland and Harvard University alumnus Adam Demuyakor to partner and further develop weCliq, officially having the app’s beta launch in the summer of 2015.  
 
“There is currently no means of utilizing the live content you are already generating as a way to connect with people nearby. By combining people’s inherent desire to meet with others locally and the rapidly increasing popularity of Selfies and Groupies (group-selfies), we’ve created a product that uses real-time photos to turn strangers into friends,” Howland explains. 
 
The entrepreneurs are planning a media and consumer VIP launch celebration during New York Fashion Week, and a college tour in the fall, recruiting student ambassadors from Columbia University, Boston University, Harvard, and NYU.
