Dumbest Criminals: Man Complains To Police About Being Shorted By His Cocaine Dealer

From: http://www.thesmokinggun.com/

Believing that he had been ripped off in a commercial transaction, Antonio Recinos decided to contact Connecticut cops to register a complaint.

Perhaps the Better Business Bureau would have been a better choice considering that Recinos, 35, thought he had been cheated by a cocaine dealer who had sold him $40 of the drug Sunday evening.

According to the East Hartford Police Department, Recinos initially dialed 911 to lodge his complaint, but when he spotted a patrolman he approached the cop to deliver his beef face-to-face.

This was a mistake on the part of Recinos, who is pictured in the above mug shot.

Recinos, who displayed a small bag of cocaine, told the officer that he had been shorted by his dealer. While it is unclear what Recinos, who apparently had been drinking, expected the cop to do on his behalf, he likely did not expect to end up in handcuffs over his consumer complaint.

Recinos, an El Salvador native, was arrested early Sunday on a narcotics possession charge. He was later freed on $5000 bail and has a March 30 court appearance, according to police.

The New Hampshire House of Representatives, which has a nearly 3:1 Republican supermajority, overwhelmingly passed a bill Wednesday that would allow residents to use marijuana for medical purposes.

H.B. 442, which would create a narrow exception in New Hampshire law for people with certain qualifying conditions to use marijuana to treat their ailments with doctors' recommendations, will now move on to the Senate.

The bill passed 221-96, or by 69.7 percent, doing better than similar medical marijuana bills have done in previous Democrat-controlled sessions, proving that this an issue that both parties can support. The bill was introduced by Rep. Evalyn Merrick (D-Coos), a cancer survivor, and is sponsored in the Senate by Sen. Jim Forsythe (R-Strafford).

Karen O'Keefe, MPP: "This vote shows that compassion is not a partisan issue"
​"This vote shows that compassion is not a partisan issue," said Karen O'Keefe, director of state policies for the Marijuana Policy Project. "Lawmakers can come together despite their political differences when it comes to allowing sick people to use medical marijuana. They owe it to their constituents to do so."

H.B. 442 enjoys strong support among voters. A 2008 Mason-Dixon poll showed that 71 percent of New Hampshire voters are in favor of allowing the use of medical marijuana, with only 21 percent opposed.

The bill now goes to the New Hampshire Senate.

Medical marijuana treatment is currently permitted in 15 other states and the District of Columbia, and is being considered in more than a dozen state legislatures this year.

Google Purportedly Testing NFC Payment Machines In NY/SF Stores

by Ray Willington
from http://hothardware.com/

Google may be opting out when it comes to joining the social networking game, but they're saying yes to mobile payments. The Samsung-built Nexus S was one of the first NFC-enabled smartphones to ship in America, and now Google is reportedly ready to start testing a mobile payment trial at stores in NY and SF. The Bloomberg article on the matter suggests that the trials could begin in four months, and it will let shoppers use their phones to buy items at those stores. NFC and contact-less payments have frequently been used to pay for mass transit, but particularly in America, it's still rare to see stores setup to accept NFC payments.


Google will be footing the bill to install these systems (VeriFone Systems) at stores, and the registers would reportedly "accept payments from mobile phones equipped with so-called near-field-communication technology." If you have an NFC phone, you'll need to connect a credit card with that account, and then you can tap your phone on the mobile terminal to check out. No one has confirmed the plans yet, but it all makes perfect sense. Google's very interested in getting deep into the NFC arena. This technology is poised to explode in America, and there's plenty Google can do from an advertising standpoint whenever location-based solutions are used. Hopefully it'll be showing up in even more cities soon.

5 Facts About the Late Nate Dogg


from http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/

Nate Dogg
Todd Williamson/FilmMagic/Getty Images

Best known for his work with Warren G, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, his unforeseen death leaves the hip hop community in mourning.

Nathaniel D. Hale died Tuesday at age 41, rattling the hip hop community. "We lost a true legend n hip hop n rnb," Snoop Dogg Tweeted after Hale’s sudden passing. "I love u buddy luv. U will always b wit me 4ever n a day."

So who is Hale, better known on stage as Nate Dogg?
THR uncovers:
1. He's been performing with Snoop Dogg since he was young.
In 1991, the Long Beach, Calif. native formed the rap group 213 — a reference to the local area code — with then-unknown pals Snoop Dogg and Warren G after serving a three-year stint in the Marines. The group's demo eventually made its way to Dr. Dre, who liked Nate's sound and recruited him to contribute to his classic solo debut, 1992's The Chronic.
2. He’s been nominated for four Grammys.
After his work with Dre, Nate collaborated with Warren G on the legendary track "Regulate.” It hit No. 2 on Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart and also earned him his first Grammy nod in 1995. He received a second nomination in 2001 for providing a hook to the Dre-Snoop track "The Next Episode"; a third in 2002 for singing on Ludacris' "Area Codes" and another notice in 2007 for his work on Eminem's "Shake That."
3. He’s collaborated with everyone from Tupac to Mariah Carey.
Though he released his share of solo albums, he was better known for his countless cameos on tracks by Mariah Carey, Eve, Nelly and even Mark Ronson. 50 Cent recalled working with him on the 2003 track “21 Questions”: “I wrote the chorus to ‘21 Questions,'" he Tweeted. "I needed Nate to sing it for me. He had a way of making everything feel hard.”
4. He had been struggling with health issues
His lawyer Mark Geragos told the Associated Press that the performer died as a result of complications from two strokes he suffered in recent years. The Long Beach Press Telegram, which first reported the performer's passing, says Nate had one in 2007 that left him partially paralyzed and another the following year. Still, Rod McGrew, his close friend and manager, tells TMZ the death was unexpected and that Nate had been making significant progress in his recovery. McGrew said Nate had gotten his memory back and was fully alert and aware up until his death. "We appreciate the enormous outpouring of response from all over the world,” McGrew said in a statement. We greatly appreciate that and thank everyone for their prayers and support. We know that Nate will be hanging out with his good friends 2Pac and Biggie."
5. He leaves behind a lasting legacy.
Hours after his death, performers took to Twitter to pay tribute. Tweeted Snoop: “I am so sad but so happy I got to grow up wit u and I will c u again n heaven cuz u know d slogan.” Rapper and collaborator Daz Dillinger added, "R.I.P. TO MY HOMEBOY NATE DOGG DPGC DOGG POUND GANGSTA 4 LIFE." 50 Cent Tweeted, “GOD BLESS HIM R.I.P he meant a lot to west coast hiphop. Iv always been a fan of it.” Said The Game: "I lost a friend. Been here before. Tears. Memories. One day someone will lose "US" as well. LIVING until that day comes is our only option."

Can You Duet? This 'Thailand's Got Talent' Contestant Sure Can!

From: http://new.music.yahoo.com/


In what can only be described as the ultimate Crying Game shocker scene of reality TV, "Thailand's Got Talent" hopeful Nantita Khumpiramon auditioned this week for the show crooning both parts of a duet ("I'm going to sing two songs which I've remixed myself," Nantita cryptically announced)--and the results were so stunning, people all over the world are now talking about this most unusual, two-sided contestant.

Be sure to watch until the end, because trust me, it gets better:


At first, this seemed like a novelty act. "Initially, I was certain that you were a transexual, but once you began singing, I was fooled to think that you were female. After you started the male verse, I should have trusted my gut feeling," said one of the judges. But after all three judges put the transgender contestant through to the next round, Nantita's storyline became truly moving.

"[Kids] always made fun of me....And my dad never accepted me for who I am," the 27-year-old confessed. "The worst, he once beat me badly. He tried to beat me until I quit being gay.

"I want to tell my dad, I love you--and I finally made it now," Nantita ultimately declared.

You go, Nantita! I have no idea if your father is proud of you now (though he should be), but I sure am, and so are thousands of viewers across the Web.

The Truly Innovative Oresund Bridge (Oresundsbron) Designed to Connect Sweden and Denmark

From: http://www.vivaboo.com/

Stretching across the Oresund Straight is the truly innovative 7,845 meter (25,738 foot) Oresund Bridge or as it’s locally referred to, the Oresundsbron. For locals or tourists looking to travel between Malmo, Sweden and Copenhagen, Denmark, without having to fly, the Oresund Bridge is the route to take.

But the Oresund Bridge is more than your typical bridge, it is a 4-lane highway as well as a 2-track railway. Every day thousands and thousands of vehicles cross the bridge. Between the vehicles and the trains that travel across the bridge, it is estimated 30-35 million people travel this route every year.

The Oresund Bridge is reportedly the longest road and rail bridge in all of Europe. Interestingly enough, part of the Oresund Bridge crossing is actually a tunnel and man-made island. So needless to say, quite a bit of construction and architectural masterminding was required to built the Oresund Bridge.

After about five years of construction the bridge finally opened mid-2000. On the Danish side, vehicles go through a 4 km (2.5 mile) tunnel and emerge from the tunnel to the man-made island at which point they are now at bridge level as they continue over to Sweden.

You may wonder why the bridge wasn’t built the same on both sides. Well, per reports, the bridge was built with the additional tunnel and island features so it would not interrupt air traffic at the nearby airport nor shipping traffic coming through the straight in either good or bad weather.
