DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE!

If you do and are stopped, what should you do? There is no easy answer for what to do if you are pulled over for suspected Driving Under the Influence.

The reality is that if you have an odor of alcohol on your breath you are likely to be arrested and taken to jail. In Georgia, for example, DUI suspects are arrested T-}–for DUI per se (blowing over 0.08) and even when they blow below the legal limit they are arrested for DUI less safe. The short answer to the question of what to do when stopped under such circumstances is to provide as little evidence as possible.

Factors to consider are: jurisdiction of arrest; law enforcement agency of arrest; and the number of drinks you have consumed. Generalizations are a dangerous thing and there are exceptions. The basic rule of thumb in a DUI case is that a DUI with a state administered breath or blood test is harder to win at trial than a case without a test. This is true simply because the Legal Limit is an arbitrary , constantly changing number. In the 1980s, it was 0.12. In the 1990, it was 0.10. Since 1997, it has been 0.08.

At 23, Adrien Broner is bringing a new meaning to the word,”rookie”. After turning professional in 2008 he impressed industry enthusiasts with three first-round knockouts against Ramon Flores, Allante Davis and David Warren Huffman. Since then, bulldozed the competition with an impressive 23-0 record, leaving fans and boxing executives alike thirsty for more and wondering if he is the next best thing to hit the ring.

Broner’s father exposed him to boxing at a young age as a means for him to escape the mean streets of Cincinnati, Ohio, which to this day is one of the poorest major cities in the U.S. As fate would have it, the former World welterweight champion and Boxing Hall of Famer, Aaron Pryor found a new student in Broner, who had a natural talent and skill for boxing, with a personality equally as dynamic as his own.

“My first day in the gym, they put me in the ring with an eight-year old. I beat him up bad. Then they put me in with the best eight-year-old and I beat him up real bad. I dropped him and everything.” His only competition that day was nine-year old ‘Nuke nuke’ now known to the world as Rau’Shee Warren, member of the 2012 U.S. Olympic Boxing team. From that day on Broner began training and though his enthusiasm for the sport has carried him far, his discipline has kept him ahead of his time.

“I love the contact. Also the skill involved” he boasts, “But boxing isn’t something you can just jump into. You can’t wake up out of bed and say, ‘Ah, I think I’m going to be a boxer today'; that’s what I love about it.”

As is to be expected, Broner has developed a specialized skill set likened to his trainer who is described as having had an ‘animalistic demeanor’ in the ring. He was as raw and intimidating as they come with triumphs and struggles alike, which could serve as an example to Broner who is already turning the flames up under his belt, literally.

After the September weigh in, Broner was stripped of his title and fined 20 percent -$60,000 — of his $300,000 purse by the Ohio commission. Half went to the commission and the other half to his competitor, Vicente Escobedo, whom he outweighed by three and a half pounds. In a sport as gruesomely political as physical, his promotion into the lightweight class will offer new competition and a promise to shake up the ranks.

This young father of four has a lot to lose and doesn’t plan on doing so anytime soon, and he will tell you to your face.

“Every time Adrien Broner is on TV, you have to watch it. You can’t change the channel because you never know what you’re going to see, man.

I might punch the guy, do a backflip and then knock the guy out after that, asserts Broner.

With youth on his side and a bright future ahead, keep your eyes peeled or you might miss him deliver his next knockout.

ADRIEN “THE PROBLEM” BRONER

Adventure sports and of adrenalin fueled activities have become increasingly sought after diversions from modern monotony. Sitting with your feet out the door of a small plane at 12,000 ft., you may ask what on earth possessed you to do this. Ten seconds later, when the air is rushing past your face at 120 mph , you will know exactly why you are doing this. Welcome to the world of skydiving.

Parachuting, also known as skydiving, is the action of exiting an aircraft and returning to earth with the aid of gravity while using a parachute to slow down during the final part of the descent. It may or may not involve a certain amount of free-fall, a time during which the parachute has not been deployed and the body gradually accelerates to terminal velocity. The history of skydiving starts with Andre-Jacques Garnerin who made successful parachute jumps from a hot-air balloon in 1797. The military developed parachuting technology as a way to save aircrews from emergencies aboard balloons and aircraft in flight, later as a way of delivering soldiers to the battlefield. Early competitions date back to the 1930s, and it became an international sport in 1952. Parachuting is performed as a recreational activity and a competitive sport, as well as for the deployment of military personnel Airborne forces and occasionally forest firefighters.

Prior to actually taking the most popular first jump, it requires a minimal amount of training on the ground while maintaining a high degree of safety. Most fears typically arise more from lack of knowledge. Because of today’s technological advancements applied to skydiving adventures, skydiving actually puts you at minimal danger. More than likely your first jump will be a tandem jump, you are attached to the front of the instructors harness for the entire skydive and parachute ride.

Don’t just sit there…….do it!
