Say What Now? Australian Senator Gets Egged by Teen, Punches Back [Video]

An Australian teenager egged the senator who made disgusting comments about immigration following the New Zealand mosque shooting.

via Complex:

Captured on video, Senator Fraser Anning was speaking with reporters when a teen who was recording him slapped an egg on the back of the senator’s head. The senator immediately turned around and hit the boy. A few men then held the boy on the ground for what seemed like an unnecessarily long amount of time as film crews surrounded him.

According to Australian reporter Kristy Mayr, the teenager was released from custody.

On Friday, the senator shared a statement where he blamed the shooting on Muslim immigration. “As always, leftwing politicians and the media will rush to claim that the causes of today’s shootings lie with gun laws or those who hold nationalist views, but this is all cliched nonsense,” he said. “The real cause of bloodshed on New Zealand streets today is the immigration program which allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place.”

The senator’s remarks were widely denounced. U.K. home secretary Sajid David accused the senator of further fueling extremism. “Australians will be utterly ashamed of this racist man,” he tweeted. “In no way does he represent our Australian friends.”

Australia’s prime minister Scott Morrison also condemned the senator’s comments: “The remarks by Senator Fraser Anning blaming the murderous attacks by a violent, rightwing, extremist terrorist in New Zealand on immigration are disgusting. Those views have no place in Australia, let alone the Australian parliament.”

After the shooting, New Zealand Attorney-General David Parker appeared to reveal that the government would ban semi-automatic weapons. However, on Saturday, he made it clear that the government hadn’t yet committed to that promise. New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern vowed to change gun laws and shared that the government would consider regulations on semi-automatics as “one of the issues,” RNZreports.

On Thursday, at least 49 people were reported dead following mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. One man was arrested and charged with murder for the attacks.

One thing’s for sure — Senator Anning was ready with that two-piece. Watch below.

Skyrocketing teen e-cig use erases recent declines in youth tobacco use

Public health experts are continuing to sound the alarm on the teen vaping epidemic, tying the nearly 80% spike in youth tobacco use from 2017 to 2018 directly to e-cigarettes. The rise has been so significant that it has wiped out any progress in declining youth tobacco use in recent years, according to a report published Monday.

TD Jakes’ Daughter: From Teen Mom to Ministry Leader and Entrepreneur

Sarah Jakes Roberts, daughter of  Bishop T.D. Jakes, became a teen mom at age 14, and later went through a difficult public divorce. However, Roberts turned her pain into purpose by leading a ministry and creating her own entrepreneurial lane with a podcast, fashion line, and Woman Evolve, a national conference and movement to help women shatter glass ceilings.

[Related: BLACK ENTERPRISE PARTNERS WITH T.D. JAKES IN SOAR EMPOWERMENT SERIES]

Roberts is a four-time author, media personality, wife, and mother of four children. She has a flair for inspiring women to get through difficult times in their lives while deepening their relationship with God — and she does it her way. While comparisons with her famous father are inevitable, Roberts speaks on stage with a vibrant personality and her own style — she challenges everything from church and cultural norms to self-limiting beliefs, and toxic relationships.

Sarah Jakes Roberts

 

BLACK ENTERPRISE: Tell us about the moment or event that inspired you to move past the public scrutiny of being a preacher’s daughter who became a mother at 14 years old. 

Sarah Jakes Roberts: I wish that I could tell you that it was just one moment, but it was a series of events. Each of those events was rooted in service. I was in my first marriage, and at a really broken point in my life. I didn’t want to go through another church scandal by first being a teen mom, and then having a divorce so I thought to myself I’ll blog, and hopefully through blogging, I’ll be able to help another woman avoid some of the issues that I’m dealing with. The more that I blogged about my situation, the more I asked myself what if you became the woman who is on the other side of those words? What if you actually took control of your life and decided to not just be this “mother” who is just going to die for their sake? As I was blogging and connecting with other women, and seeing that I wasn’t the only one who had made difficult choices, it really inspired me to see what we could do if I dusted off the ashes and chose to rebuild.

How did you learn to trust your self to deliver messages that challenged the status quo in church, life, and business? For instance earlier this year, when you released Wild Woman—a woman commented on your Instagram post that your messages appeared to contradict the Bible.

What I trust more than anything is the depth of what I am delivering. I believe if what you are delivering is the answer to a need that you should trust it. I also realize that in the process of growing and manifesting whatever this vision is, that I’m not always going to get it right.

For instance, I was so engrossed in what Wild Woman means to me, that it never dawned on me it would make people uncomfortable. I was engrossed in the need. So in the process of manifestation, you have to know that you’re going to have a learning curve and you may not do things the way you would do them in 10 years. But you can never find out how to do them in 10 years unless you start now.

How do you plan your content and prioritize what messages you deliver on?

I deliver messages that resonate with where I am. I think that probably has a lot to do with the passion that I end up bringing to the message. I don’t look at what’s going wrong in the world and say, okay I’m going to preach about this because it’s the headlines. I think some people do that and that works for them. But I literally go into prayer and access my own life. I focus on where am I and what do I need to hear.

For instance, when I preached ‘Unleashed’ in January, I was at a place in my life where everything I had done up until that moment was because someone invited me to do it. For me, that meant I was living in the realm of someone else’s vision. Now, I think that’s incredible because you learn so many things, but there comes a certain point where you stop wanting to be invited into someone else’s vision and ask God what is the vision you have for my life—that’s where Woman Evolve came from. So I preached the kind of messages that deliver me from my own fears and insecurities and it just so happens that it ends up resonating with other people.

Recently you launched a fashion line. How else do you see yourself evolving?

I see myself evolving in a way that probably will not change a lot of what the public sees, but more about who I am behind the scenes. What I’m working on now has a lot to do with structure and accountability. Making sure that I have the type of infrastructure to support the influx of people who are attached to this messaging. I hope to continue to learn about different strategies and creating proper timelines for the different pinnacles of the brand, and just connecting and submitting myself to people who know more than I do.

I want to challenge the belief that your relationship with God has to look a certain way in order for it to be real, I also want to challenge the belief that in order for you to be a Christian you can’t also like fashion. I believe it’s important for our generation, especially millennials who are leaving the church in droves, to look relevant to the cultures so that they can learn about our Jesus.

Bristol Palin’s Ex Is ‘Working on Their Relationship’ After ‘Teen Mom OG’ Diss

Backtracking like the best of them! Bristol Palin’s ex-husband, Dakota Meyer, continued to apologize for comments he made about her parenting abilities on Teen Mom OG.

“In regards to the comment on tonight’s @teenmom episode insinuating Bristol is anything other than a great mother is deeply regretted on my part,” Meyer, 30, captioned a photo of himself paintballing with Bristol, 28, and her son Tripp Palin — whom she shares with ex-fiancé Levi Johnston — on Monday, December 17. “Looking back and seeing my behavior does not represent the man I strive to be. Going forward I have made the commitment to Bristol to work towards a better relationship and putting our children’s best interests before my own.”

In a followup post on Tuesday, December 18, the Afghanistan veteran — who split from Bristol in February — posted a photo of himself in a hospital bed and revealed that he suffers from anxiety. (He has previously spoken out about this struggle with PTSD.)

Meyer’s comments come one week after he shared a similar sentiment about Bristol after facing backlash for calling Teen Mom OG “trailer trash” on social media and slamming his ex-wife and her costars for “sitting around [and] bitching about their ex’s.”

While the MTV star didn’t respond to Meyer’s remarks, she posted her own message about the show at the time and expressed her disapproval. “If I cared what people thought of me, I wouldn’t be here today — let’s be real. I’ve stood strong and held it down for my kids since day one. No matter how bad @teenmom tries to portray my ‘life’ … my babies, my family, my close friends — they know the truth,” she captioned a photo with Tripp and her daughters with Meyer, Sailor, 2, and Atlee, 19 months. “I’m a pretty great mom, work my ass off, show up, and hustle everyday to give my kids a pretty great life.”

She added: “@mtv doesn’t want to talk about faith, show work ethic, or juggling three kids alone, they don’t want to show the humble process of starting over after a divorce, building a career, or any real issues. All they want with my little segment each week is some fake fill-in Farrah Abraham/Jerry Springer BS, and it’s simply not true.”

Bristol confirmed in July that she’d be joining Teen Mom OG for season 7.

The Year Of The Vape: Teen E-Cigarette Use Spikes

New data suggest that vaping isn’t a passing fad: Teenagers across the country are doing it in record numbers.

More than one-third — or 37.3 percent — of 12th-graders reported vaping at least once in the past 12 months, according to a survey released Monday by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. That’s an increase of nearly 10 percentage points over 2017, when 27.8 percent of high school seniors reported vaping.

The students surveyed said they had vaped nicotine, marijuana or simply flavoring. Researchers say it’s unclear whether teens know what’s in their vape, and that some may be misguided about vaping only “flavoring.”

The findings are “a remarkable wake-up call for public health officials, and for parents and communities who are responsible for raising healthy children,” said Dr. Wilson Compton, the deputy director of the institute, which funded the survey.

The data also showed that the number of high school seniors who reported vaping nicotine within the previous 30 days nearly doubled from 11 percent in 2017 to 20.9 percent this year.

E-cigarettes, also known as vapes, are battery-operated devices that heat nicotine-laced liquid to generate an aerosol that users inhale. The liquids come in kid-friendly flavors — from watermelon to the more exotic “unicorn puke” — that release fruity and sweet vapors, making e-cigs easier to disguise than traditional cigarettes.

While the vape industry insists that its products are only for — and advertised to — adults, teens can easily get their hands on them.

Health experts fear that the high nicotine content of vaping liquids can be extremely addictive for teenagers and ultimately lead them to traditional cigarettes. Nicotine is known to raise blood pressure and has been linked to heart disease.

“We know that nicotine affects brain development,” said Stanton Glantz, a professor of medicine and director of the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education at University of California-San Francisco who was not involved in this study.

The heated e-liquids, he added, “tear up your lungs.”

Researchers at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, who conducted the annual survey, asked 44,482 students from 392 private and public schools across the country about their use of tobacco, opioids, marijuana and alcohol.

They found that the use of traditional cigarettes is still at a record low, with 3.6 percent of high school seniors smoking daily, compared with 22.4 percent two decades ago. Teenage opioid use is also decreasing: 3.4 percent of seniors reported using prescription opioids in 2018, down from 4.2 percent in 2017 — and significantly lower than its peak of 9.5 percent in 2004.

Alcohol use and binge drinking also continue to decline among teens, according to the survey.

Vaping is the outlier.

The steady decline in teens’ use of other drugs makes the growth in vaping all the more concerning, Compton said. “It’s really important that we keep an eye on this.”

In response to this trend, hundreds of cities, towns and counties across the country are restricting the sale of flavored tobacco products, including vape liquids. California legislators recently introduced proposals to ban the sale of such products in stores and vending machines statewide, and to make it harder to buy them online.

The vape craze exploded when the Juul, an electronic cigarette brand with a sleek design resembling a flash drive, started popping up on school campuses. Students even take hits from their Juuls in class or school restrooms.

In vapes like the Juul, nicotine comes in “pods” or cartridges in flavors such as mango, cucumber and crème. Other e-cigarettes use “e-juice” or nicotine liquids that not only come in appealing flavors but are often packaged to look like candy.

“Our intent was never to have youth use Juul products,” said company spokesman Ted Kwong. Juul has taken steps to reduce teenage vaping, he said, such as ending the sales of certain flavored pods at retail stores starting last month, strengthening the age verification process on its website and eliminating its Facebook and Instagram accounts.

The restrictions proposed by the state legislature follow San Francisco’s ban on the sale of flavored tobacco products, including vaping liquids and menthol cigarettes, which took effect in July.

Twenty-four other California counties or cities have restricted the sale of these products, according to the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. In Massachusetts, 136 communities have restrictions on the sales of flavored tobacco. In Minnesota, nine communities do. Chicago bans sales of flavored tobacco products within 500 feet of schools.

California state Sen. Jerry Hill (D-San Mateo), lead author of the state bills, said his proposals would curb the “epidemic proportion” of vaping among teens.

“This is something that requires immediate action to protect our youth,” Hill said.

Federal regulators want to ban the sale of most flavored e-cigarettes at retail locations like gas stations and convenience stores. They also want to require anyone buying e-cigarettes online to verify their age. The new restrictions come as the Food and Drug Administration has been trying to rein in a dramatic increase in vaping by young people. Smoking of traditional tobacco cigarettes has fallen to a record low, but the popularity of e-cigarettes among youth is raising alarm bells.
