Seventh shark victim in North Carolina is recovering while law officials are considering investigating what’s going on underwater
The shark tales in North Carolina continue to grow, but there is nothing fictional about this dangerous matter as the 7th victim of a monstrous shark attack had to be airlifted to a hospital yesterday afternoon.
The Boston Herald’s former editor in chief, Andrew Costello was severely injured after he tried to fend off a seven foot shark with an appetite for severe destruction along the Atlantic coast.
Costello, who is now doing better as reported by his family, was bitten on his left side, in his lower leg and hip and on both his hands around 12:13 p.m., Hyde County EMS Director Justin Gibbs told ABC News. He was swimming waist deep into the ocean and enjoying an afternoon on the beach with his son when the shark attempted to devour him.
Florida Program Director for Shark Research, George Burgess said, “The alarming number of attacks in North Carolina is an extremely dangerous situation right now.”
Burgess and law officials are calling for many of the waterfront communities to close the beaches considering the amount of people who will be coming for 4th of July. Greg Skomal of the Massachusetts Division of Marine agrees stating that, “With this high number of attacks over such a short period of time, there is clearly something going on in that area worthy of looking into.”
Ever since Prince‘s Rally for Peace last month, the icon has been relatively silent. Today he returns with another seductive anthem sure to satisfy any sexual situation in “HARDROCKLOVER”. Utlizing mean guitar licks to illustrate his passion and a slow creeping bass line that hypnotizes, Prince proves he can make any woman “scream” in the sultry cut.

If you’ve been sleeping on West Coast trio Warm Brew then its time to wake up. Returning with a new video from their incredibly dope Ghetto Beach Boyz project, Ray Wright, Manu Li and Serk Spliff with the help of Racella put their spin on Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo+Juliet in their Topshelf Junior-directed clip for “A1Day1″.
Hit play and reminisce about your past love while the g-funk bumps.

“I remember crusin’ down to Arkansas / hearing stories that explain exactly why I spar this hard / black militia rapper a full-time job..”
We’ve peeked inside the brilliance of Georgia Anne Muldrow‘s with her previous releases and now the verbally defiant “Arkansas” from her debut rap album, A Thoughtiverse Unmarred. The single holds steady to that lyrical standard and silences any remaining doubters of the singer/songwriter/producer’s ability. The song’s gritty, Jay Stone-directed video sees monochrome flashes of Muldrow as she alludes to the inner-struggles and outward battles on the path to actualization. Oh yeah, and that funky production is brought to you courtesy of Chris Keys. Check out the introspective video above and give us your thoughts below #Thoughtiverse
Ever heard of the saying, “ballin’ on a budget?” That is a real concept. Spending racks on a new summer wardrobe or expensive vacations out of your means isn’t necessary to have a bangin’ summer. Opting for “staycations,” a vacation in your city where you act as a tourist and explore the in’s and out’s of your city like an out-of-towner, or shopping on a budget will help you go into the Autumn season with a hefty savings and a memorable summer. Check out some tips on how to have an amazing summer without spending a ton of dough.
Take Advantage of Local Events and Attractions
No matter where you live, there’s always something to do. Whether festivals, outdoor concerts, to visiting your local museums or parks, the summer is the time to go outside and even the warm temperatures. And don’t forget about those Happy Hours! Bars and restaurants slash their prices, make sure you take advantage of the deals.
Visit websites like Valpak, where they have a bundle of discount vouchers for local restaurants and other entertainment activities for 50% off or more.
Kick Off Weekly Family Dinners
Pick your closest four or five pals and start a family dinner where one person cooks for the group each week. Great for socializing and entertaining, bring games and drinks And don’t forget to put your phones away. After 8:00pm, start a “No-Phone” rule, where no one is allowed to peek on social media or text the entire evening. The first to break must buy the group drinks!
Find Free Activities for Kids
Kids out of school and getting restless? Check out Regal Summer Series, where kids see matinee’s for only a buck. This is also the time to sign your kid up for summer sports leagues, which are usually low-cost or no cost. Children also get free passes to museums and local attractions.

Her hashtag #KyeBreakTheInternet helped this prom dress go viral!
Kyemah Mcentyre made her dreams come true after showcasing her custom made prom grown on IG. Soon after it caught the eye of thousands, Power’s own Naturi Naughton wanted one for herself, and was later seen modeling a dress by Mcentyre at the BET Awards. Naughton found an instant connection with the young artist when she learned they were both from East Orange, NJ.
Mcentyre agreed to take on the project when Naturi reached, but she was also a little nervous. “It was my second design,” Mcentyre tells Cosmopolitan.com. She took notes by phone — Naughton wanted a mermaid dress in an African “Angelina” print with a halter that showed off her cleavage — and sketched three designs.
At the BET Awards, the responses to the dress were immediate and overwhelmingly positive. “I can’t even get over how much of a queen I felt walking onto the carpet,” Naughton says. “The dress was the talk of the night.”
After such an official debut of her new collection, this recent high school grad is on her way to a successful career as a celebrity designer!
Take a closer look at the Naturi’s custom dress here:
It ain’t for everybody *Jay-Z’s voice*
I’m almost positive I can speak for lot of people when I say it isn’t surprising that an artist like Meek Mill doesn’t listen to Kendrick or J. Cole. Meek stopped by Power 105 to discuss his new album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, of course. While he was there he kept it all the way 100 with Angie Martinez giving listeners a peak into his personal taste in music.
“I don’t listen to J. Cole and I don’t listen to Kendrick,” he said. “I think that they’re dope lyricists and they’re like great rappers, but they don’t inspire me. It don’t seem like they be talking to me. That ain’t no hate at all.”
And if everyone made the same kind of music, what kind of world would this be? Rhetorical. Meek does listen to Dej Loaf, Young Thug, and Jay-Z and said nobody really touches or inspires him right now except Future.
Black Girls Rock!
This ballerina is easily making history – making the cover of Time magazine, being recognized in 60 minutes, and starring in ballet’s biggest roles across the nation. Misty Copeland, 32, has been a soloist with the American Ballet Theater since 2007, and she now makes the first African-American principal ballerina in the company’s 75-year history.
Copeland is idolized by millions of girls and has become a social media sensation, as fans rave about her recent promotion and success.
“I had moments of doubting myself, and wanting to quit, because I didn’t know that there would be a future for an African-American woman to make it to this level,”
Ms. Copeland said at a news conference at the Metropolitan Opera House on Tuesday afternoon.
“At the same time, it made me so hungry to push through, to carry the next generation. So it’s not me up here — and I’m constantly saying that — it’s everyone that came before me that got me to this position.”
Copeland’s athleticism and urning for success helped her rise to the high ranking achievement and she accepts the title as principal dancer with grace.
Watch Misty Copeland’s Under Armor commercial that gained over 8 million views above.
“Houston To Lil Mexico” is the latest in a string of releases that have ATL residents blessing the “2 Legited 2 Quitted” group with a cosign, as it follows collabs with K Camp and Migos.
