ALGIERS (Reuters) – Authorities have lost contact with an Air Algerie flight en route from Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso to Algiers with 110 passengers on board, Algeria’s APS state news agency and a Spanish airline company said on Thursday.

APS said authorities lost contact with flight AH 5017 an hour after it took off from Burkina Faso, although other officials gave other timings, adding to confusion about the fate of the flight and where it might be.

Spanish private airline company Swiftair confirmed it had no contact with its MD-83 aircraft operated by Air Algerie, which it said was carrying 110 passengers and six crew.

Would You Be Happy If Your Kids Grew Up To Be just Like You???

20140721-113106-41466757.jpg

This post isn’t to bash anyone or focus on the negative but I’m sitting here thinking about all the mess I’ve been through in my life and where I am now. I’m thinking about what if my son grows up to be like me. I would hate for his life to be like the old me but as I sit here thinking the old me helped me become the new me. The things I went through in life were important for me to grow. as I still continue to grow I look at all the bad that helped shaped my transition. IF IT WASNT FOR THE RAIN HOW WOULD I APPRECIATE THE SUN?

Beats By Dre RECALL!!!!!

The Beats by Dre Headphones are being Recalled.

I was talking to a manager at Best Buy and he told me that they have orders for the Beats by Dre ‘Executive Edition’ to be Recalled. They even pulled it up in the system and it showed that they are on a Manufacture Recall. I’m mad because these are the BEST Beats on the market. I have the Executives and they are GREAT for travel. They were made to lay and fold flat for easy travel but the BEST part is that these are METAL and a lot of the other beats are PLASTIC and known for breaking easy. I’ve heard that folks are complaining about the weight of these from the METAL but I have a HUGE head so the extra weight doesn’t bother me!

Check out photos below of the executives and leave a comment letting me know what edition of Beats that you have
