American Voices: Music Found To Speed Recovery In Surgery Patients

Researchers have found that patients who listen to music before, during, and after surgery experience less pain and quicker recovery times, a phenomenon that might be caused by music’s ability to change the brain’s neural pathways and induce relaxation. What do you think?

WRONG!Yhivi’s tricks don’t work on this virile bunch of sweaty men; they see she just wants their attention and that is exactly what she gets– from their cocks. Yhivi’s tied up with their ruined uniforms, panties and dick shoved down her throat, ass in the air as they spin her around in a laundry basket, running trains on all her holes. She delivers round after round blow jobs right in front of the window, for all the public to see, and then it’s onto a deep anal and pussy pounding ’til this slut’s a quivering mess. The team then flips the whore back and forth in as many DP positions as their cocks can handle, including some humiliating anal with Yhivi’s head twisted in an industrial dryer. Her face is sprayed with their hot bukkake cum, topping this slut off with even more filth than when she walked in!

Speed Racer (2008) – Andy Wachowski & Larry Wachowski

Speed Racer (2008)

Andy Wachowski & Larry Wachowski

Genre: Action & Adventure

Price: $ 9.99

Rental Price: $ 2.99

Release Date: September 16, 2008


Hurtling down the track, careening around, over and through the competition, Speed Racer (Emile Hirsch) is a natural behind the wheel. Born to race cars, Speed is aggressive, instinctive and, most of all, fearless. His only real competition is the memory of the brother he idolized—the legendary Rex Racer—whose death in a race has left behind a legacy that Speed is driven to fulfill. Speed is loyal to the family racing business, led by his father, Pops Racer (John Goodman), the designer of Speed's thundering Mach 5. When Speed turns down a lucrative and tempting offer from Royalton Industries, he not only infuriates the company's maniacal owner (Roger Allam) but uncovers a terrible secret—some of the biggest races are being fixed by a handful of ruthless moguls who manipulate the top drivers to boost profits. If Speed won't drive for Royalton, Royalton will see to it that the Mach 5 never crosses another finish line. The only way for Speed to save his family's business and the sport he loves is to beat Royalton at his own game. With the support of his family and his loyal girlfriend, Trixie (Christina Ricci), Speed teams with his one-time rival—the mysterious Racer X (Matthew Fox)—to win the race that had taken his brother's life: the death-defying, cross-country rally known as The Crucible.

Teen Runs From Cops In Hyper Speed [VIDEO]

We don’t know what this guy did to get “detained” by cops, but the speed he displayed when giving an officer the slip reveals cops should check the whereabouts of any local track stars.

Seriously, son looked like he hit the “turbo” button or shares the same genetic markers as Usain Bolt.

Also, that flat foot never stood a chance. You should have just radioed it in, sir, you looked winded.

Lastly, the law of averages says you should never run from cops. Just saying.

Camryn Howard Talks Embodying DJ Speed In Straight Outta Compton

Being raised on Dr. Dre’s The Chronic, having an uncle who locally presided over the N.W.A’s reign in rap and being a recording artist has natually groomed Camryn Howard to be a part of history before he even knew it was being made. The thriving multi-talent is seeing his blessings manifested as he’s set to star in not one but two summer blockbusters this year in Ted 2 and Straight Outta Compton.

In the latter flick, he was chosen to play DJ Speed, the world’s most dangerous group’s unheralded touring DJ. While speaking exclusively to Hip-Hop Wired, reveals how being in the midst of gangsta greatness helped his own music career as the R&B singer Cam30 flourish and why Straight Outta Compton will be the one to beat this year.

“They had been auditioning for like a year beforehand and the casting director just called me in,” Howard says, remembering his first time on the set. “They ended up picking me because I had other stuff on my resume and tested me out at the climax of the movie. [F. Gary Gray] just sticks me on the bus with the four other cast members and says, ‘Just be natural,” Howard recalls with a laugh. “It was really crazy because [Dr.] Dre was just walking around the set and it was a really a shock. There was a whole bunch people I knew who auditioned for the role and they ended up calling me and keeping me for the rest of the movie.”

Ice Cube & Co. cast an obviously talented new crop of actors for the roles (including his own son) and with the feeling of experience being a common link, Howard says creating a bond on the set was relatively easy.

“Everybody was like family. We developed a brotherhood and friendship and when see each other, we call each other by our character’s names,” he admits. As for playing DJ Speed, audiences should expect to get a true-to-life portrayal of a group member often rubbed out of the group’s history.

“Speed, he was like Eazy-E’s best friend so it was cool to see how he was able to go on tour with the group. There are some pretty dramatic scenes in the movie; I can’t lie. I don’t want to spoil anything but you’ll definitely get your money’s worth,” he reveals.

Switching gears to the music front, Howard is equally excited about his role in Straight Outta Compton as he is his music career. He accredits his mother’s background as a gospel singer to his decision to go the R&B route instead of rapping.

cam30

“I’m just a creative person so I feel like when you’re singing, there’s some places you can take it and evoke emotion that you can’t when you’re rapping,” the now-talking Cam30 says. “But I’m still about the lyrical content and relating to the urban culture.”

There’s nothing like having the universe working in your favor in all aspects. While the Straight Outta Compton biopic is dropping on August 14, Cam30’s debut single, “Quarantine” is out now. Watch the video below.

Speed is the New Intelligence

If I told you the government was planning some sort of new program to benefit its citizens, your initial reaction might be, “uh-oh.” Governments aren’t smart. And the last thing you want from a dumb entity is “more.”

Governments have smart people working for them. But when you sum up the parts of government, you get less than the whole, thanks to bureaucratic inefficiency, political in-fighting and whatnot. 

But what if that were about to change?

A smart friend told me recently that speed is the new intelligence, at least for some types of technology jobs. If you are hiring an interface designer, for example, the one that can generate and test several designs gets you further than the “genius” who takes months to produce the first design to test. When you can easily test alternatives, the ability to quickly generate new things to test is a substitute for intelligence. Will users on your website click the burnt orange button more often than the green one? With a tool such as Optimizly or Mixpanel you can test that hypothesis in minutes.

Smart people in the technology world no long believe they can think their way to success. Now the smart folks try whatever plan looks promising, test it, tweak it, and reiterate. In that environment, speed matters more than intelligence because no one has the psychic ability to pick a winner in advance. All you can do is try things that make sense and see what happens. Obviously this is easier to do when your product is software based.

That gets me back to the government. Over time, the practices of private industry infect the government. So we can expect the government to evolve to a mindset of trying something that makes sense, measuring results, and quickly iterating. President Obama essentially said that was the plan with Obamacare. It was an imperfect plan that the President said could improve in time. Did past presidents talk like that? It sounds a lot like a Silicon Valley start-up. You try something, see how you did, and adjust from there.

Obviously the government has always tried to measure its results and improve. But have we ever before launched a major program with known flaws and the intention of improving as we go? That seems new to me, at least in terms of degree. (Historians, please fact-check me in the comments. Wars don’t count.)

Thanks to the Internet, and Big Data, governments have powerful new tools. Now a government can try something, rapidly fix it on the fly, and end up with something good that was hard to predict. In other words — and this is new — a government could launch a program that citizens are skeptical about so long as it had a credible plan to measure results and tweak it to perfection.

Governments are dumb by design because any brilliance that slips into the system will be beaten down by the chorus of average minds and the distortions of political interests. But if speed can sometimes be a substitute for intelligence, things look hopeful. Because as governments become more software-based (Obamacare lives mostly as software, right?) you will see a world in which speed (plus testing and tweaking) are more important than intelligence. As a result, the perceived intelligence of governments should increase simply because the speed of iterating and testing will increase.

We are also seeing the measure-then-fix method play out in states with medical marijuana laws and doctor-assisted suicide laws. The states are seen as test beds. If things go well in the state of Washington, for example, that gives cover for the Federal government to follow their lead. And because we have fifty states, and each is capable of being its own test bed, we gain government speed through all of the individual tests that can be watched, tweaked, borrowed, and spread.

The biggest obstacle to a smarter government is the voters. It will take some time before a national politician can say some version of “We don’t know what will work, so our plan is to launch ugly and figure it out as we go.” In today’s world, that doesn’t sound leader-ish enough. But someday any other approach will appear backwards.

So here’s the summary:

1. Government programs are increasingly becoming software entities.

2. We can quickly measure, tweak, and adjust software.

3. In this environment, speed is more important than intelligence. (Or if you prefer, speed improves the intelligence you already have.)

Therefore, over time, governments will become far more effective. States will be understood as test beds for national programs. And new government programs will be launched with admitted flaws and a plan for iterating toward improvement. Obamacare might be seen as the first in this model.

That feels like good news to me.

Hot Rods – Extreme Expressions of Speed and Death

2014-06-30-HotRodedited2014.jpg

America is all about life, liberty and the pursuit of one’s personal version of happiness and in today’s politically correct world, few places express the founders’ original ideals like Hot Rod shows.

The Central Coast of California has become a stomping ground for Hot Rod enthusiasts and every year Hot Rodders descend upon small towns and turn them into a walk on the wild side. If one asks what makes a Hot Rod Show so hot, the word “extreme” is the first superlative that comes to mind.

Hot Rods are mostly low rider, “souped-up” American cars from the 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. However, they are not just ultra fast, restored antique cars with their exterior panels removed. In fact, they are carefully designed to show off their chromed mechanical components, thus, their outer likeness to the original vehicles becomes somewhat superficial.

Interiors are often stripped to the bare minimum, exposing the steel frame and bodywork and Hot Rods then effectively become a caricature of the original automobile they were made to resemble. Safety in the context of Hot Rods is an oxymoron, since Hot Rods have no airbags or interior padding, no crash zone and only the most rudimentary and symbolic bumpers.

What they lack in safety they make up for in power. Exposed engine blocks, with chrome plated manifolds and exhaust pipes popping out in the most unusual places.

And how about that paint job? Since decoration is such a big part of the Hot Rod looks, flames, skulls, cowboy graphics and American icons are plastered all over their luminescent bodies, to make them stand out in a crowd.

Assembly quality is not standard, with large tolerances and gaps that seem devoted to the inch system rather than to the standard automotive metric system. Seams and parts do not necessarily line up, just as in the old days before the Japanese Total Quality wave swept through US car manufacturing. Door hinges are exposed and accessories have a distinctly disconnected and bolted on quality to them. Somehow though, it all seems to come together in one holistic statement of “built tough.”

Hot Rods are definitely head turners and can bring a nostalgic smile to anyone’s face. When seen humming along on the freeway, they express a relaxed, casual joy of life. A special dress code seems to go along with the Hot Rod look, with men and women dressed in black, wearing black sunglasses and shorts or short dresses, with their arms covered in gothic tattoos.

Heavily modified by their owners, these highly expressive objects of art stand in stark contrast to mass manufactured, environmentally responsible, foreign imports. Do they express a nostalgic longing for past American glory, as in “rebels without a cause?” Or, are Hot Rods simply expensive toys and the American version of an Italian Ferrari? If you have yet to attend a Hot Rod show, this can be your official invitation and passport to California’s Central Coast in the summertime.
