ETHLIN ENTERTAINNMENT | LOS ANGELES | APR 16 2015 –  Today (April 16, 2015) is a historic day for wives and side-piece everywhere, whether wealthy, middle class, poor, black, white, Chinese. Doesn’t matter, because the wives score a big one today over side pieces everywhere. Everyone remember Donald Sterling, and his girlfriend (side piece) V. Stiviano, who was born as Vanessa Perez. Their controversy began almost a year ago on August 25th of last year (2014).

The odd couple was in the spotlight, when TMZ gain access to an audio tape of then, Los Angeles Clippers owner, Donald Sterling ranting on and on about African American in general and a picture of Magic Johnson and to his then girlfriend V. Stiviano together. In the conversation you can here Mr. Sterling used some pretty strong words about African Americans. Those words heard on that audio file lead to his own players, coaches, and owners backing away from him; and eventually the NBA forced him to sell the Clippers and issued him a lifetime ban.

While many saw this as a jab and a knockout punch to Donald Sterling Empire. This wife stood by his side throughout the events. As many people called out Stiviano as the one who released those tapes to TMZ, to shatter Donald Sterling. Stiviano was in front of the camera each and everyday, as the man she claims she love, and who showered her with gifts like a 1.8 million Dollar home and Ferrari, Bentleys rots and beat down by the media and the public.

Well it seems that Donald Sterling and his wife, Rochelle “Shelly” Sterling was the one who benefitted the most from the whole controversy. It force the Clippers to be sold, which was entered into a betting war and sold for $1.9 billion, to former CEO of Microsoft Steve Ballmer, who I admire as an owner.

Today, Los Angeles judge Richard Fruin Jr. awarded Shelly Sterling $2.6million of the $3million plus she had sought from Ms. Stiviano. Lawyers argued in court that, Stiviano used sex to manipulate Donald Sterling and used other recordings to show he bought Stiviano a house, a Ferrari, expensive trips, clothes and other expensive goods. The recordings are from Stiviano own iPhone, which you can hear both Stiviano and Sterling discussing how to hide gifts from his wife.

Shelly also pointed out that the money that was used to purchase the gifts for Stiviano, was her property. Stiviano lawyers argued that these money was spent during the split up of Donald Sterling and Shelly Sterling; it was interesting to see how Stiviano slams Donald Sterling in court.

Donald took to the stands and testified that he paid for the entire house, and Stiviano didn’t even give 50 cents toward her $1.8 million Spanish style duplex, a statement that Stiviano doesn’t agree with, saying she had contributed an unknown amount of money, money that was given to her in small amount from family members that she saved.

Stiviano looks like a complete fool, she continue to call Donald Sterling, a father figure and a very generous friend at the same time, she’s calling him, a bigot and a evil man, yet she continue to accept these expensive gift from a bigot, a man she claims didn’t like black or Hispanic people. Not only she accepted those expensive gifts but she stated that Donald Sterling spend far more time with she and her family than Sterling own wife and children during the 2 and half years she spent as his personal assistant.

She will called him all sort of names but will say thing like ‘We were so interconnected on a level that was more spiritual. He became my everything and I became his all” Word from Stiviano mouth under oath.

I don’t care how rich you are, I am not going laugh up in your face, accept all your gifts and pretended we are all cool, when you’re a flat out racism  or a killer, I would never bring those type of people around my family. It shows her character, that she’s the only one that matters. It was she who recorded that tape and it was she who sold that tape to TMZ.

At one point Sterling’s lawyer turned to Stiviano a ask

‘Who is the real Donald Sterling?’

Stiviano replied

‘The real Donald Sterling is a con artist, a bigot … he’s mean, he’s despicable,’ Stiviano replied, before quickly adding that to her, he was ‘kind, loving, sweet … a mentor, a father. … He treated me as he treated no one else.’

Quickly right after Stiviano got emotional as she spoke about Donald Starling visiting her brother, in the hospital when he needed a heart transplant.

The picture she is painting, is that Donald Sterling is this amazing person, who is there for both her and her family; to take advantage of his money and generosity but he still a racist that should rot and die.

She wanted to use the tape to start the controversy to dis credited Donald Sterling and his wife in this lawsuit. Many people may not had known, this but Shelly Sterling brought this lawsuit to V. Stiviano months before the tape leaked out, and those are probably the reason Shelly Sterling stood by her man side; because she knew she was playing him. These are reason why it doesn’t pay to-be evil, because everything has now gone completely wrong for her, when Donald and Shelly Sterling became even richer. Who has the last laugh Shelly Sterling did.

Now a days these young females, are buying their body, and seducing men all over the world for money and lavish life style, making these men leave their home destroying families from left to right. Especially celebrities and older wealthy men; men will always have a graving for beautiful females, that’s something that will never go away especially now a days where you can go guy a butt or a breast or a 1 inch waist and 40 inch butt. Wives everywhere go crazy at their husband but many of them can’t help it! Can they?

After the family is rip apart they go to the media for TV, book deals, and their 15 minutes, degrading themselves as human beings’, I won’t say their body, because it not their body – they didn’t earn it. Most time its the men they are seeing pay for it.  So it belongs to them. That is exactly why, Shelly Sterling is in titled to receive her money back from Stiviano.

That’s why today is a big day for man and wives all over this Earth, because it give them a way to fight back, no matter how old you are if you’re a man and you’re in your later stage, and a pretty lovely women is interested in you; Most men won’t push them off, and man always want their woman to-be happy; so they spending money giving the young women all she want, hoping it will keep them happy; and they will stick around.

They say prostitution is the oldest profession sex sell, and sexy sex get you were ever you want to be, see Kim Kardashian

Hear Trapped, Seattle Airport Worker, Who Fell Asleep in Cargo Hold

abc, good morning america, youtube


THE TRAVELLOUR | SEATTLE, WA | APRIL 14 – Early Monday afternoon, An Alaska Airline Boeing 737, took off from Seattle Tacoma International Airport, on its journey to Los Angeles. Just after takeoff, the pilots of the aircrafts heard a loud banging and screams for help coming from inside the aircraft cargo compartment. The pilots contacted ATC and then decided to turn the aircraft around and head back to Seattle Tacoma.

“The captain immediately returned to Seattle, declaring an emergency for priority landing. The aircraft was in the air for 14 minutes,” the airline said.

Passengers on-board the Boeing 737 heard and recorded the loud banning and screaming coming from the bottom on their feet inside the aircraft cargo hold. A passenger stated that two flight Marshall also heard the loud banging and screaming for help; The Marshall’s alerted the flight attendant. The Flight Marshall and Flight Attendant then, tried to alert the person in the cargo hold by screaming into the floor, letting the trap man know that the aircraft is being turned around.

After landing; it reported that a ramp worker fell asleep, inside the front cargo compartment. The guy is very lucky. However he did the right thing by panicking and am sure anyone in his situation; would have done the same; even though the cargo compartment is temperature controlled, and pressurized.

According to the Alaska Airline “The employee started work at 5 a.m. and was scheduled to end his shift at 2:30 p.m. During a pre-departure huddle, the team leader noticed the employee was missing. The team leader called into the cargo hold for the employee and called and text the employee’s cell phone, but did not receive an answer. His co-workers believed he finished his shift and went home.

Alaska Airline assured us, that all ramp employees have security badges; and that each employee undergo full criminal background checks and drug screening prior to being hired. Each employee also subjected to random drug tests throughout their employment. 

The ramp agent, was an employee of Menzies Aviation, and had just passed a drug test that same afternoon. He was also transported to Highline Medical Center in Burien, Washington and was treated and released. There was 170 souls on board the Boeing 737-800 NG aircraft, including 6 crew members. The flight later continued on to its orginal destination and landed in Los Angeles around 6:17 p.m

Emirates Airlines Increase Daily Service to New York-JFK

SMADE NEW YORK | Nov 6th 2014 | Dubai based, Emirates Airline, The national airline of United Arab Emirates has announced their plans for a 3rd daily round trip service between New York’ John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Dubai International Airport (DXB) in Dubai, UAE. Complementing their current twice daily Airbus A380 service and a daily Boeing 777 service between New York and Milan. Brining the middle eastern carrier to 4 daily flights out of New Yorks-JFK.

The carrier plans on operating the new service with their luxury flagship – Airbus A380 Superjumbo aircraft; bring Emirates to 3 daily A380 service between; New York’ largest and busiest airport JFK and Dubai International Airport, UAE busiest airport.

Emirates’ currently operates a fleet of 54 A380 Superjumbo’, configured in 2 different layout. Configuration A – features 489 seats including 14 First Class Private Suites, 76 Business Class lie-flat beds and 399 Economy Class seats on the main deck. Its upper deck features Emirates’ on-board lounge for premium passengers, However First Class Travelers has access to a private Shower and Spas for First Class passengers. All Emirates Airbus A380 features on-board Wi-Fi access; USB outlets and other charging outlets and more than 18 hundred stations; along with Music’s, Movies, TV Shows and Games in more than 10 different languages.

Configuration B is fitted in the same 3 layout cabin that features 14 First Class seating, and 76 in Business Class; However Economy Class is fitted with 517 seats, which is 18 more than configuration A. The less cramp version; Configuration A will be use on A380 service between New York and Dubai.

The new inbound service from Dubai will be operating as EK 207 and will depart Dubai at 2:50 PM Dubai Time and arrive at New York’s JFK at 8:35 PM EST (New York Time). The Return service operating as, EK 208 will be departing JFK at 4:30 PM New York Local Time and arrive in Dubai at 1:15 PM Dubai Local Time the following day.


“This new service will allow passengers the convenience of an afternoon departure from both Dubai and New York, to complement the existing morning and evening departures of our existing three services”, said Emirates’ Hubert Frach, Divisional Senior Vice President, and Commercial Operations – West. “New York is one of our busiest and most popular routes in the United States. Adding this fourth service will give our passengers even more choice of connectivity when flying from any part of our global network, in particular the Far East and South Asia. Once in the US, our partnership with JetBlue adds even more seamless connectivity onto their network of 65 destinations from JFK.”

– Hubert Frach, Divisional Senior Vice President, and Commercial Operations at Emirates Airlines.


 The fourth daily service will commence March 8th 2015. With JetBlue and Emirates codeshare agreement; the new service will benefit both airline. The night arrival offers travelers transferring to Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco and other west coast cities/destination; a great red eye travel time for early morning arrival in to their west coast destination. Members of Skywards, Emirates’ frequent flyer programmer, are able to earn miles on JetBlue operated flights as well as redeem miles for flights to any of JetBlue destinations to and from North America, the Caribbean and JetBlue latest service to and from South America. Vice versa; members of JetBlue’s TrueBlue loyalty frequent flyer program can earn points on any of Emirates operated flights worldwide.


“As New York’s Hometown Airline, we are delighted to see Emirates continue to expand at our main base of operations with this fourth daily service,” said Scott Lawrence, JetBlue’s senior vice president of airline planning. “Emirates is a valuable partner for JetBlue, providing our shared customers with high standards of service across an incredible network.”

– Scott Lawrence, Senior Vice President of Airline Planning, JetBlue


 

MY EMIRATES AND NEW YORK THEORY

As Emirates places a boeye on the U.S market; aiming to make the U.S its primary revenue source as they look to expand by adding more flights and destination.  Will Emirates ever look to make New York an International Hub. Would that make sense? It’s a question I ask; JetBlue operates its main base at New York’s-JFK with service to more than 100 destination in the United States and over 40 Caribbean International Service, and with JetBlue set to open its international zone at Terminal 5 could the design incorporates both a A380 and 777 gate and ramp; as of November 6th JetBlue doesn’t not operates anything bigger than an Airbus A321 and has no plans for the any larger than the A321.

After coming back down to earth with this idea. I think to myself; how would this work; which destination would Emirates offer first? And what would be the benefits of New York City Hub for Emirates. With Dubai International at a capacity and Dubai World; a superjumbo airport and Emirates expanding rapidly it would make perfect sense for Emirates to look at New York for an International Hub; Yes they choose Qantas and Sydney but Sydney is no used to the rich airline.

[GALLERIA] Nissan Kicks Concept Debut at Soa Paulo Auto Show

SMADE Galleria New York | Nissan release the all new Kicks Concept at the 2014 Sao Paulo International Auto Show, The concept was design at Nissans North American Design Headquarters. The concept resembles the current generation Nissan Juke, the Kicks concept could be exactly that; the next generation Nissan Juke, which is more than 4 years old.  Nissan concept as of late has stick to a very concept-production design language; when we look at the Kicks concept all we see is the current generation Rouge/X-Trail mash together with the overall shape and class of the Nissan Juke.

The Check-Like DRLs (daytime running lights) along with the headlights and front grille or now making its way towards productions vehicles. Started with the Rouge, and now the 2015 Murano. With the Murano taken 90 percent resemblances from the resonance concept. Nissan last six concept cars were design with a particular design language, a design language that the public seems to admire; just like us here at SMADE Auto; but with concept after concept sticking to one design theme we believe that before Nissan brings these cars to life they design becomes stales to people like us; maybe not to the buyers; but definetly auto enthusiasts.   However it is a design we love; its a much better design than anything Nissan has ever created in the past before.

The Kicks concept is a product of Americans , The Kicks was design right here in America at Nissan Design America, which is located in San Diego California. Under the leadership of the Global Design Center in Japan,Nissan Design America, was able to create a concept that looks both rugged and pack a compact performance stances. Nissan is using this concept to showcase its new satellite design studio; known as Nissan Design America Rio.


“The main inspiration for this concept was the contrast that we saw in the grey tones of the urban settings in São Paulo and the bright natural colors that we saw near our studio in Rio,” said . “How to combine these two, the more grey urban tones with the bright sunset orange that we would see – this combination we thought was really uniquely Brazilian.”

– Robert Bauer, Chief Designer at the Rio studio



“But the team has a bigger ambition for this concept,” says Taro Ueda –

“It’s not only just for the Brazilian market, but we capture the idea of Brazil and then we apply it to our global design improvement, making a stronger design lineup for future Nissan designs,” said Ueda.

GAME NOTES


SMADE Sports (Oct. 31st 2014) INDIANA |  It was a big night for Zach Randolph, he came up big in Grizzlies second win of the season, Zach Randolph who is originally from Indiana gave out over four dozen tickets to friends and family, he didn’t disappoint, Grizzlies trailed by double digest in the third when Randolph and Conley took the game over; both Conley and Randolph combined for 13 points in a 26-2 run to take a 74-63 lead with 2:23 remaining in the third. Randolph scored 11 of his 22 points in the third and added 13 rebounds to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a 97-89 victory over the Pacers.  Marc Gasol had 20 points and 6 rebounds and Mike Conley added 17 points for the Grizzlies. The Grizzlies had just 9 turnovers and converted on 18 of the Indiana Pacers turnovers into 14 points. Despite poor shooting in the second quarter, Memphis still shot 44.3 percent, thanks to an amazing performance in the 3rd and 4th Quarter in order to seal the game and come out of Indiana with a road win moving The Grizzlies to a 2 – 0 start for the 3rd time in Franchise history, The Grizzlies may have been fueled by their homecoming Memphis has three players on the team who is originally from the Indiana area Mike Conley and Courtney Lee are from Indianapolis, and Randolph from Marion, Indiana.


“We played with a lot more aggressiveness in the second half,” Memphis coach David Joerger said. “They weren’t able to get up as many shots and get up by as many points in the second half.”


With Indiana big injury to Paul George, and David West, who didn’t play tonight and the world no, Paul George maybe out for the year, do to the broken foot he suffered during the USA Basketball Blue vs Red Game. The lost of Lance Stephenson to Hornets and George Hill, out many wonder how will the Pacers stack up this year after coming just 2 win short of the NBA finals the last 2 years. Played amazing tonight Chris Copeland came off the bench to give Pacers a lift in the scoring department and lead the team with 16 points and 6 rebounds in 32 mins on 5/14 shooting; C.J. Miles added 13; Rodney Stuckey had 11 Damjan Rudez 8 and Donald Sloan with 12. Lavoy Allen lead the team in rebound with 10.

Memphis will travel to North Carolina to take on the Jordan’s Charlotte Hornets Saturday night game time 7:00pm EST
This Pacers team will have to look at this game as a win and build on it; as 3 of their next 4 games will be on the road but first Indy will stop at the Philips Arena in Atlanta to battle the Hawks Saturday night, game time; 7:30 PM EST.
