Jaden Smith Receives Backlash After Condoning Quitting School
The WNBA will miss having “people” like Tina Thompson and Katie Smith on the court every season! A Long Road – But a Great One! Thompson was the first pick in the inaugural WNBA draft in 1997. No one can ever claim that title! She was also a nine-time All-Star… yes – count them – NINE times as an All-Star! Some players are mentioned as being on the roster once, if ever. Thompson did it nine times. One top of that she’s a four-time WNBA champion. She scored 7,000 points and she grabbed 3,000 rebounds and she’s a four-time WNBA champion. Tina has been named to the WNBA All-Decade team, oh… did I mention Olympic Gold Medals? She truly is one of the best players to ever play the game. Over the course of 17 years Thompson as helped her team, fellow players, the league, her community and more. Yes, the WNBA will miss a player, and person, such as Tina Thompson.
Like us on Facebook He continued by making hypothetical statements about the intelligence of mankind. “If newborn babies could speak they would be the most intelligent beings on planet earth,” he tweeted. After Smith’s comments began to circulate, a number of people took to Twitter to disagree or poke fun of them. “Wait, now you’re sending mixed messages. Please clarify your position on education before I do something I regret. @officialjaden,” one person tweeted. Another person seemed to take things a step further when sounding off on Smith’s rant. “Jaden Smith is the latest on http://DumbestTweets.com. Go see why,” the person tweeted. “Also, no young sir. Go sit down.” Yet another person questioned if the budding Smith’s position on education had anything to do with his father and actor Will Smith’s alleged Scientology religious practices. “Jaden smith, aka what scientology does to kids,” the person tweeted. While Smith did not respond to the backlash that he received for his positions on education and intelligence in society, his parents have previously spoken about their style of parenting that may seem unorthodox to some.
Could Will Smith return for ‘Independence Day 2’ after all?
Jada Pinkett Smith is an actress, author, singer-songwriter and businesswoman. She and Smith started Overbrook Entertainment, which has produced many of Smith’s films, including “After Earth.” Smith makes no apologies for encouraging his children to follow their parents toward cameras and microphones. “I grew up in a family business. So it’s like everybody works together and that’s how the family bonds and communicates and how we eat,” he said. “In my mind, I’m a warrior and I’m teaching my son how to hunt. And how else would I teach my son how to hunt other than bring him with me and we’re in an interview and this is what I do and this is the business I work in. To me, I can’t imagine what the other option is.” That said, he approaches parenting differently than his own father, a former Air Force pilot who enforced strict discipline on Smith and his siblings. “The major difference is I’m trying to release the sense of ownership,” Smith said. “With our kids, Jada and I believe that it’s their lives and we are helping them with their lives. And they’re not our property. They are people that are deservant of our respect and consideration in the same way that any other human being should be.” Beyond acting, Jaden learned his father’s early raps and now writes his own. While he isn’t looking to replicate the one-time Fresh Prince’s every move, it’s clear he has internalized Dad’s long-term outlook on the family business. “If I wanted my career to be exactly like his, then people would keep telling me for the rest of my life, `Wow, you successfully pulled off your dad’s career. Congratulations!'” Jaden said. “If I was doing just what he did, then my son would feel like he had to do just what I did.
Durham is the International League champions. The Bulls plan to start former Royals farmhand Jake Odorizzi. The Storm Chasers havent yet identified their starter, but top options are Yordano Ventura and Chris Dwyer. Odorizzi and Ventura, while both in the Royals system, were the starting pitchers in the 2012 All-Star Futures Game at Kauffman Stadium. Odorizzi went to the Rays in last Decembers big trade. The game can be seen at 6 p.m. Central time on the NBC Sports Network. Omaha won its second PCL title in three years Saturday with a 10-5 victory at Salt Lake. Lane Adams three-run triple keyed a six-run eighth inning. The Storm Chasers won the best-of-five series 3-1. Idaho Falls next? Short-season Idaho Falls can capture its first Pioneer League crown since becoming a Royals affiliate in 2004 when it plays Monday at Helena (Brewers). The Chukars beat Helena 2-1 on Saturday at home in the opener to the best-of-three series. Jonathan Dziedzic worked six shutout innings, and Hunter Doziers RBI double highlighted a two-run third inning. A third game, if necessary, is Tuesday at Helena.
Hochevar, Smith shifting to more crucial bullpen roles for Royals
“And then when he had some chances to scramble, there were some nice lanes there, and he took advantage of that. That’s his game.” Smith would scramble again on the opening possession for 13 yards to the 2, setting up a 2-yard touchdown flip to Charles. He finished the first half with seven carries for 49 yards. “The (pass) protection was great in the first quarter, especially on the opening drive,” Smith said. “I saw a lot of (Cowboys) backs turned and running . . . I saw a lot of big lanes to run through. “It’s not something you’re thinking about, it just kind of happens. All of a sudden you’re taking off. With the kind of style defense they were playing, there were a lot of backs turned toward me and a lot of green grass.” Smith gave the Chiefs the lead for good with his 12-yard touchdown pass to Bowe. That score was set up when he hit Donnie Avery for the biggest offensive play of the game, a 31-yard hookup. Bowe ran a delayed route across the middle and broke free untouched for the touchdown.
Will Smith’s Kids Are ‘Not His Property’: ‘I’m Trying To Release The Sense Of Ownership’
Director says he has meeting scheduled with star By DonKaye_ParallelUniverse Sep 5, 2013 4:00PM Although Will Smith previously all but ruled out starring in a sequel to “Independence Day,” the actor may be rethinking that position. Bing: More on Will Smith | More on ‘Independence Day 2’ With director Roland Emmerich gearing up to begin production on the follow-up to his 1996 alien invasion blockbuster, actors Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman have already expressed their interest in returning. But earlier this summer, while doing press for “White House Down,” Emmerich dismissed the possibility of Smith coming back, saying he was too famous and would simply cost too much. Smith himself has seemed cool to the idea as well — but that was before “After Earth” became the first major flop of his career and one of this summer’s more high-profile bombs. How else to get back on track than returning to the franchise that all but made him a movie star in the first place? That may be exactly what Smith is thinking, because Emmerich has now told Digital Spy (via Slashfilm ) with regards to Smith’s involvement, “It’s changing every month. I sometimes say no, Will Smith will not be in it because he didn’t want to do it at first. Now we have a meeting planned, where we want to talk about it again. Anything can happen.” Having a meeting is a long way from signing to star in the film, so there are still excellent odds that Smith won’t be interested. But the fact that he is taking a meeting with Emmerich about the project could mean that he’s at least leaving the door open to return. Meanwhile, Emmerich revealed that the previously announced release date of July 3, 2015 could get pushed back by a year: “I will make it either for 2015 or ’16…Probably right now, as it looks, ’16.” That’s not a bad idea. Not only is 2016 the 20th anniversary of the original movie, but it gets the sequel away from the ticking time bomb that is the 2015 release schedule, which already includes confirmed and tentative releases like “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Man of Steel 2,” “Pirates of the Caribbean 5,” “Fantastic Four,” “Jurassic Park 4” and possibly “Star Wars Episode VII.” Will “Independence Day 2” be better if Will Smith comes back on board?
