MAN CHANGES HIS APPEARANCE TO LOOK LIKE A BLACK ALIEN?

A man who wants to look like a ‘black alien’ and had already had his nose removed has lost his top lip in his latest shocking body modification.

Anthony Loffredo has already split his tongue and covered his entire body – including his eyeballs – in tattoos as part of his @the_black_alien_project on Instagram.

The 32-year-old Frenchman had his nose removed in Spain as it is illegal in his native country.
Speaking about his latest face change he did not say when he had to work done, where or by who, but did say he now struggles to speak after the lip removal operation.

During a live question and answer session on Instagram Anthony said he dreams of removing his skin and replacing it with metal.

HOW TO SIGN UP FOR COVID 19 VACCINES!

Harris County Public Health Expands Vaccine Registration Process with New COVID-19 Vaccination Portal

‘Smart Waitlist’ System to Ensure Efficient, Fair, and Equitable Registration Process for Eligible Residents; County Has Currently Vaccinated 27,426 Individuals

HOUSTON — Starting on Tuesday, January 26th, Harris County Public Health (HCPH) will launch a new COVID-19 Vaccination Portal for residents who meet the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) criteria for receiving a vaccine. The portal will allow individuals to be placed on a waitlist and contacted once vaccines and appointments are available. The waitlist will be available via the vaccine information link on ReadyHarris.org and https://vacstrac.hctx.net starting no later than Tuesday afternoon. Eligible residents without internet access can also call (832) 927-8787 once the portal is live to be placed on the waitlist.

Harris County’s new “Smart Waitlist” system will not use a first-come, first-served process for allocating vaccines. In order to ensure fair access for elderly residents, working families, and vulnerable populations, registrants on the waitlist will instead be selected through a prioritization and randomization process in accordance with state guidelines. Only individuals who fall under the DSHS Phase 1A and 1B category will be eligible to receive the vaccine at this stage. Those who are not qualified to receive the vaccine under 1A or 1B will still be able to be placed on the waitlist but will not be contacted to schedule an appointment until the State of Texas expands eligibility beyond 1A and 1B, likely not until the Spring or Summer.

Priority phases:

Phase 1A: Individuals in Phase 1A who register for the waitlist will be prioritized before those in Phase 1B to ensure everyone in Phase 1A has an opportunity to receive the vaccine. Within Phase 1A, individuals will be selected at random from the following age cohorts, with oldest cohorts prioritized first: 75+, 65-74, 55-64, 45-54, 35-44, 25-34, 18-24.
Phase 1B: Individuals in Phase 1B who register for the waitlist will be selected at random from the following age cohorts, with oldest cohorts prioritized first: 75+, 65-74, 55-64, 45-54, 35-44, 25-34, 18-24.
Future Phases: Individuals who are not qualified to receive the vaccine under Phases 1A or 1B will still be able to register for the waitlist. However, they will not be contacted to schedule an appointment until the Texas DSHS expands eligibility beyond Phases 1A and 1B.
Once individuals are selected to receive a vaccine, they will be provided a link with instructions on how to select a location and time to get vaccinated at a HCPH site.

The launch of this new portal and waitlist expands the previous process by allowing eligible residents to sign up for vaccines on their own directly. Since December, Harris County Public Health has administered 27,426 vaccines to eligible residents, less than a week after receiving each shipment. To date, HCPH has so far been reaching out directly to and vaccinating front-line workers under Phase 1A and specific groups in Phase 1B who have high contacts or will have trouble obtaining a vaccine outside of HCPH.

As more supply of vaccine becomes available, HCPH will continue to ensure allocation and administration of vaccines are done in ways that are efficient, fair, and equitable, and that vulnerable communities have equal access to vaccines.

Residents who are selected for an appointment should show up no more than 15 minutes before their scheduled time to ensure the process flows smoothly. Those who are not eligible or who show up without an appointment at an HCPH site will be turned away. All appointments are based on vaccine availability, and current appointments may be adjusted due to any possible changes to the department’s vaccine allotment.

Current COVID-19 vaccines require two shots and the protectiveness of the vaccine — which has a 94% efficacy rate — does not set in until a week or two after your second shot. Even with the arrival of a COVID-19 vaccine, HCPH encourages residents to stay home, cancel gatherings, wear a facemask, socially distance, and get tested.

In addition to the new registration portal, HCPH will be launching a COVID-19 Vaccine Data Hub. The Data Hub that show vaccine availability, distribution and other demographic data. The data included currently only reflects vaccines allocated to Harris County Public Health and select providers in the area through the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and will grow to include partnering organizations and Houston Health Department in the near future.

More information about COVID-19 vaccines is available at www.hcphtx.org or www.ReadyHarris.org.

WHEN WILL WE GET THE NEXT STIMULUS CHECK?

Congress plans to take steps this week toward quickly passing President Joe Biden’s coronavirus aid proposals, including a third wave of direct relief payments for most Americans.

The next batch of stimulus checks would be for $1,400 — to top off the $600 payments that started going out in late December. Democrats and former President Donald Trump had wanted to provide $2,000 in that round but were thwarted by Republicans leading the Senate at that time.

MORE OFFICERS INDICTED IN HARDING STREET RAID!

Press Release: A Harris County grand jury indicted a Houston Police officer for murder, and five others who are or have served on the force, for engaging in organized criminal activity, as the result of an investigation touched off by a 2019 raid that killed two people in their home on Harding Street.
 
The six officers indicted Monday follow six others – for a total of 12 – including Gerald Goines and Steven Bryant, indicted last year for various felonies uncovered by a probe led by the Harris County District Attorney’s Office Civil Rights Division.
 
Dennis Tuttle, Rhogena Nicholas, and their dog, were shot to death in their home during a botched afternoon raid by members of Squad 15 of the Houston Police Department’s Narcotics Division.
 
“The consequences of corruption are that two innocent people and their dog were shot to death in their home by police; four officers were shot, one paralyzed, and now all of them will face jurors who will determine their fate,” Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said.
 
The investigation determined that Goines lied to a judge to obtain a “no knock” search warrant to raid the house, and that officers had been involved in a long-term scheme to steal overtime from the city.
 
The officers indicted Monday include:
 
Felipe Gallegos – (HPD) was indicted for murder in the death of Dennis Tuttle. The charge is a first-degree felony and carries a penalty of up to life in prison.
 
Other officers indicted on first-degree felonies Monday who face a maximum of life in prison if convicted are:
 
Oscar Pardo – (HPD) Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity, to wit: Aggregate Theft by a Public Servant ($30,000 or more but less than $150,000) and Tampering with a Governmental Record (1st degree)
 
Cedell Lovings – (Status Unclear) Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity, to wit: Aggregate Theft by a Public Servant ($30,000 or more but less than $150,000) and Tampering with a Governmental Record (1st degree)
 
Nadeem Ashraf – (HPD) Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity, to wit: Aggregate Theft by a Public Servant ($30,000 or more but less than $150,000) and Tampering with a Governmental Record (1st degree)
 
Two officers who were already facing charges were also indicted on first-degree felonies:
 
Clemente Reyna – (No longer HPD, retired) Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity, to wit: Aggregate Theft by a Public Servant ($30,000 or more but less than $150,000) and Tampering with a Governmental Record (1st degree)
 
Thomas Wood – (No longer HPD, retired) Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity, to wit: Aggregate Theft by a Public Servant ($30,000 or more but less than $150,000) and Tampering with a Governmental Record (1st degree)
 
The following officers are charged with second-degree felonies. If convicted, they face 2 to 20 years in prison:
 
Frank Medina – (HPD) Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity, to wit: Aggregate Theft by a Public Servant ($2,500 or more, but less than $30,000) and Tampering with a Governmental Record (2nd degree)
 
Griff Maxwell – (HPD) Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity, to wit: Aggregate Theft by a Public Servant ($2,500 or more, but less than $30,000) and Tampering with a Governmental Record (2nd degree)
 
One officer who was charged last year was also indicted Monday on a second-degree felony:
 
Hodgie Armstrong – (No longer HPD, retired) Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity, to wit: Aggregate Theft by a Public Servant ($2,500 or more, but less than $30,000) and Tampering with a Governmental Record (2nd degree)
 
Goines – (No longer with HPD, retired) was previously indicted for two counts of felony murder.
 
Bryant – (No longer with HPD, retired) previously charged with tampering.

REMEMBERING KOBE BRYANT AND HIS DAUGHTER GIGI ONE YEAR LATER!

It’s been a year since Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven others died in a helicopter crash in Southern California on Jan. 26, 2020.
They were on their way to a basketball tournament on a Sunday morning. Bryant, Gigi — that’s what most called his daughter — and everyone else aboard the helicopter were killed instantly in the crash, officials said.

Bryant, 41, won five championships in his 20 NBA seasons, all with the Los Angeles Lakers. He was a Grammy winner. He was a best-selling author of children’s books. He will soon be officially enshrined as a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. 

Knowing that the anniversary of Bryant’s death will be emotional for everyone, Lakers coach Frank Vogel is giving his players the day off to allow them to better manage their grief and honor their late teammate Bryant “how they see fit.”

“It’s not a day remembrance like his birthday,” Vogel said. “It’s more of a somber-tone-type-of-day.”

The Lakers are spending the night in Cleveland before flying to Philadelphia — Bryant’s hometown — on Tuesday. They play the 76ers on Wednesday.

“God rest his soul, God rest the soul of Gigi and the seven others that perished,” said Miami assistant coach and former NBA player Caron Butler, who was close with Bryant for years. “The legacy that he left, man, he did it all. He inspired. When you think about being better, embracing the storm, having the right mentality and perspective about life and always trying to be better, he embodied it all and that’s why his legacy will live forever.”

MYSTERIOUS METAL MONOLITH FOUND IN THE DESERT… ALIENS OR HOAX?

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Department of Public Safety helicopter was assisting Utah Division of Wildlife Resource officers counting bighorn sheep when the crew spotted something mysterious from above.

The discovery was made Wednesday.
“One of the biologists is the one who spotted it and we just happened to fly directly over the top of it,” said pilot Bret Hutchings. “He was like, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa, turn around, turn around!’ And I was like, ‘what.’ And he’s like, ‘There’s this thing back there – we’ve got to go look at it!’”

The crew circled back and landed the helicopter to take a closer look. They couldn’t believe their eyes.

A Department of Public Safety crew spotted a mysterious metallic monolith embedded in the rock in an extremely remote area of wilderness.
