People are going to get really upset and probably bury our news article with comments that our coverage is racist. However, we want to be up front and try to explain what we’re trying to accomplish with this news piece. We want to show how the media is full of bias and that on a daily basis you are sold things that are twisted and changed in the way the media wants you to see them. We are not advocating the horrible things George Zimmerman has done to Trayvon or his family. We are trying to point out that you’re not getting the whole story.
From the beginning of the Travyon Martin case he has been presented as a little boy who was carrying a bag of skittles. George Zimmerman was sold as a man out to get Trayvon and attacked him while he was walking around in a gated neighborhood. The pictures that have been presented of George Zimmerman are essentially mugshots with orange jail clothes. The pictures of Treyvon are very innocent, digitally altered to make him look soft and angelic and never show his tattoos, gold teeth or gang signs.
Why aren’t you being told that:
- Travyon Martin was witnessed to be on top of George Zimmerman before he was shot?
- George Zimmerman was cut in the back of his head and had his nose bloodied by Trayvon Martin.
- Trayvon Martin was suspended from school for vandalism and caught with marijuana, stolen jewelry & burglary tools.
- Trayvon Martin was either giving or selling weed to his friends?
- Why haven’t you seen pictures of Trayvon and his gold teeth?
- Why haven’t you seen Travyon and his tattoos he shared on Twitter & MySpace?
- Why is no one talking about Travyon being suspended multiple times from school?
- Why isn’t anyone talking about Trayvon fighting and swinging at a bus driver?
- Why has Trayvon’s picture in his hoodie been digitally altered to make his skin look bright and soft?
- Why isn’t anyone talking about the fact that Trayvon beat up George Zimmerman?
- When Trayvon Martin & George Zimmerman collided, why was he out so late at 3:00am walking in the rain?
We believe you haven’t been told any of the above because of media bias.
We have a copy of 30 minutes of the 911 calls as the altercation between Trayvon Martin and George Zimmmerman, the neighborhood watch captain were taking place.
You can listen to the 30 minutes of 911 calls here:
When we first listened to the recordings we have to admit, we were shocked, horrified and felt horrible for Trayvon Martin. You could hear someone screaming help, help, help on the tapes. What we found out from police investigations that it’s not Travyon screaming for help, it’s actually George Zimmerman.
When police arrived on the scene, George Zimmerman’s back was wet, stained in grass and Trayvon Martin was shot in the front, not from behind.
From the Fox Tampa Bay News they list the following information:
And from that moment to the shooting, details are few. But one man’s testimony could be key for the police. “The guy on the bottom who had a red sweater on was yelling to me: ‘help, help…and I told him to stop and I was calling 911,” he said. Trayvon Martin was in a hoodie; Zimmerman was in red.
The witness only wanted to be identified as “John,” and didn’t not want to be shown on camera. His statements to police were instrumental, because police backed up Zimmerman’s claims, saying those screams on the 911 call are those of Zimmerman. “When I got upstairs and looked down, the guy who was on top beating up the other guy, was the one laying in the grass, and I believe he was dead at that point,” John said.
Some people have tried to say that George Zimmerman was a racist and that he acted out because Travyon Martin was a black teenager. However a story put out by Reuters reveals from an interview from Mr. Zimmerman’s lawyer that it would be hard to believe Zimmerman was racist considering his mentorship. “This was not a racially motivated situation,” Sonner told Reuters on Saturday from his law office, which has attracted a parade of television satellite trucks since it became public on Friday that he was representing Zimmerman. “Actually George Zimmerman was a mentor to a single mother with a 14 year old son and a 13 year old daughter and she had nothing but good things to say about his involvement with them, and also helping in raising money for their African American church,” Sonner said.
The media is even getting into literally creating the bias by Photoshopping the Treyvon Martin hoodie photos they’re putting in their articles. The original Treyvon Martin hoodie photo was released by the Miami Herald as a Getty Image. If you look at just about any other mainstream news site you’re going to see the new lightened, enhanced and soft image of Trevyon Martin hoodie photo. Why do you think they would Photoshop the hoodie photo? You can view them below.
Original Treyvon Martin Hoodie Photo in Miami Herald
You have probably seen all the photos that the media is sharing of Travyon Martin besides just the soft colored hoodie one. They are pictures of him when he was 13 years old and when he was playing football. We’ll share those with you below as well:

A Young 13 Year Old Photo of Trayvon that most media outlets are using:
While you certainly should never judge a book by it’s cover, it gets harder when you notice that the media is providing a pretty tainted canvas. We have also uncovered pictures of numerous tattoos that Trayvon Martin had on his body. There’s certainly nothing wrong with tattoos but it does put a different light on the little kid with skittles that everyone is painting a picture of.
Pictures of Trayvon Martin’s tattoos were recovered from his MySpace account (which is still up and running), Tweets from his Twitter account (which is deleted now but some data is cached by Google) and the pictures are still live on Trayvon Martin’s Twitpic account (which is still running).

Other photos that are used over and over in the media are child like pictures of him at around 13 years old. An example of a couple of those pictures are above with one being a picture of Trayvon smiling and another of him playing football. The picture that you probably haven’t seen is the picture of Trayvon smiling for his Twitter account with his gold teeth showing.
Trayvon Martin’s Twitter Account: SLIMM @NO_LIMIT_NIGGA
Here is the photo Trayvon used for his Twitter pic:
A lot of people have claimed the gold teeth photo of Travyon is not real and is fake. The photo was uploaded by Travyon himself to his @NO_LIMIT_NIGGA Twitter account himself. Trayvon’s cousin: @Rip_Tray9 also mentions this account hundreds of times which you can read all the tweets here.
Here was a Tweet from someone on Twitter that tells Trayvon that he didn’t tell him that he swung at or punched a bus driver. This was a few days before Trayvon’s death and could lead into other clues to his suspension or could be another altercation altogether.
The Daily Caller has created a Scribd backup of all of Travyon Martin’s tweets. The @NO_LIMIT_NIGGA Twitter account has since been removed from Twitter. Instead of detailing all his tweets we’ll let you read them for yourself below:
On February 5th, 2012 it was Trayvon’s birthday. Everyone left him Happy Birthday messages on his Facebook wall. A screenshot provided below shows one friend named,
Mackenzie DumbRyte Baksh saying, “Yeoo happy birthday ! but pik up the fone or hmu we got buisness to talk !”
Treyvon Slimm Martin replies, “NO PHON”
Mackenzie DumbRyte Baksh replies, “Damn were u at a nigga needa plant”
While this certainly doesn’t scream that Trayvon Martin is dealing drugs to his friends, it does add a list to the pile of questions that start showing up now. Did Mackenzie just want to smoke weed from Trayvon or was he buying it?
Trayvon Martin had been suspended from school for vandalism. As reported in the Miami Herald in October, a school police investigator said he saw Trayvon on the school surveillance camera in an unauthorized area “hiding and being suspicious.” Then he said he saw Trayvon mark up a door with “W.T.F” — an acronym for “what the f—.” The officer said he found Trayvon the next day and went through his book bag in search of the graffiti marker.
Instead the officer reported he found women’s jewelry and a screwdriver that he described as a “burglary tool,” according to a Miami-Dade Schools Police report obtained by The Miami Herald. Word of the incident came as the family’s lawyer acknowledged that the boy was suspended in February for getting caught with an empty bag with traces of marijuana, which he called “irrelevant” and an attempt to demonize a victim.Trayvon’s backpack contained 12 pieces of jewelry, in addition to a watch and a large flathead screwdriver, according to the report, which described silver wedding bands and earrings with diamonds. Trayvon was asked if the jewelry belonged to his family or a girlfriend.
“Martin replied it’s not mine. A friend gave it to me,” he responded, according to the report.
There had been over thirteen different thefts in the private gated neighborhood that George Zimmerman was serving as the neighborhood watch captain. It was 3:00am, raining and and someone was walking suspiciously around the neighborhood with a hoodie on. That would probably arouse suspicion in a lot of people. Trayvon Martin had already been found with a bag full of jewelry & weed so it’s not exactly off base to consider he might have been acting suspicious. No one in the mainstream news media is discussing this part of the incident.
Now if we look at the way George Zimmerman has been portrayed in the media, it’s been fairly negative and made him seem like the aggressor. Most of the time media shares pictures of George Zimmerman it is him shown in orange jail clothes and not a normal picture of him.
Normal pictures of George Zimmerman:
George Zimmerman Mugshot:
Now we certainly don’t know if Mr. Zimmerman is innocent, he clearly didn’t follow the dispatcher’s orders to not approach Trayvon Martin. All that we want to bring to your attention is there is information out there that is not being told and is being exaggerated or focused on. Let this situation go through the courts in due process and let justice be done either way. When the Black Panther party puts out a $10,000 bounty on George Zimmerman’s head it only feeds into potential riots and race wars.
Unfortunately, these days we can’t rely on the media, nightly news or your local newspapers to tell you the whole truth and nothing but the truth. All you can expect to get is a sensational story that will keep you watching their news channel or reading their newspaper. Hopefully the courts can take care of this issue while the United States refocuses on other issues that effect the entire country on a daily basis.

AMCA Breach: 20 Million Victims, 19 Class Actions
[bctt tweet=”AMCA previously reported that there were only 200,000 victims in the recent breach, but their partner labs said there were more than 20 million.” username=”Z6Mag”]
More than 20 million and not 200,000 have fallen victim to a massive data breach that has seen medical clients using the services of healthcare billing company, American Medical Collection Agency (AMCA), to pay for their laboratory tests in different blood testing labs across the U.S. were confirmed by the SEC filings of affected medical institutions amidst the earlier claims of AMCA that there were fewer victims.
The data breach was a result of a cyber attack that aims to phish for financial information from the website of the AMCA. The exposed data belongs to Americans who paid laboratory services at several clinical and blood testing labs and institutions and used the AMCA billing portal.
What happened in the AMCA breach?
Data that were stolen from the victims include their names, phone numbers, dates of birth, home addresses, social security numbers, credit card numbers, and other bank details. The said information was auctioned off by the hacker in several financial hacking forums.
According to DataBreaches.net, the organization who first reported about the incident, AMCA officials, following the notification of the breach confirmed that their system has been compromised and has remained undetected for more than eight months. AMCA corroborated that the breach took place between August 1, 2018, and March 30, 2019.
Notifications have been sent by several of AMCA’s corporate partners and clients to their customers following the disclosure of the security breach that has seen information from millions of Americans compromised.
The list of impacted testing laboratories includes Quest Diagnostics (11.9 million patients), LabCorp (7.7 million patients), BioReference Laboratories (Opko Health subsidiary, 422,600 patients), Carecentrix (500,000 patients), and Sunrise Laboratories (undisclosed number of patients).
However, neither the AMCA nor its five clients have yet to notify ALL impacted citizens by the breach making them vulnerable to a lot of cyber crimes and their financial data could be used by anyone who gets hold of the information against the persons of those who still don’t know that their financial information is floating around the internet.
The companies involved in the breach are facing several lawsuits
Appropriately, the lawsuit came into the direction of AMCA, Quest, and LabCorp regarding the incident. More than 11 class-suite actions have been filed against the three companies for their inability to protect consumer data. The 11 lawsuits were recorded at The United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) on June 3. Since then, eight more lawsuits were filed against the companies in federal courts from New Jersey, New York, and California.
According to litigation experts, “If many cases are filed in federal court, any of the lawyers on any of those cases can file a motion with the JPML [..] to centralize the various federal cases that have been filed by sending all of them to a single judge for coordinated pre-trial proceedings.”
“Healthcare companies are especially susceptible to data breaches not only because they aggregate a tremendous amount of important and sensitive data, but also because they tend to be less focused on cybersecurity protection than other industries,” said John Yanchunis of Morgan and Morgan, one of the firms who filed lawsuits against Quest Diagnostics.
“These companies, like Quest Diagnostics, know they are at an increased risk and yet have not taken the proper steps to protect their patients’ data. We will fight for justice on behalf of those impacted by this breach,” added Yanchunis.
Lawmakers are demanding an explanation
The U.S. government, led by attorneys general from Connecticut and Illinois has also opened an investigation on the matter. Furthermore, lawmakers and other politicians have sent letters to the responding companies to ask for an explanation of why an eight-month data breach remained undetected and to demand accountability from them.
In Washington, US Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) also sent a letter to Quest Laboratories demanding the company explain its vetting process for selecting AMCA as a billing vendor, and what requirements a third-party vendor has to pass. Democratic New Jersey Sens. Cory Booker and Bob Menendez also sent letters to AMCA, Quest, and LabCorp, seeking official answers on how a breach of this severity went undetected for eight months.
“The months-long leak leaves sensitive personal and financial information vulnerable in the hands of criminal enterprises. Moreover, such breaches force victims to contend with identity theft that may lead to irreparable harm to their credit reports and financial future,” said the letter sent by the NJ senators.
‘The Hunger Games’ Is Launching A Prequel And A Possible Movie
[bctt tweet=”Suzanne Collins is releasing a prequel to The Hunger Games storyline and Lionsgate is already looking forward in turning it into a blockbuster movie” username=”Z6Mag”]
Almost fours years after the last The Hunger Games movie (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part II) and almost nine years after the first book from the trilogy was released, Suzanne Collins is returning with the famed trilogy — but this time in a form of a prequel.
Scholastic, the publishing company that distributed Collins’ The Hunger Games trilogy, announced today that it is publishing a prequel novel to the series, currently untitled, which will hit shelves on May 19, 2020.
“Suzanne Collins is a master at combining brilliant storytelling, superb world-building, breathtaking suspense, and social commentary,” Scholastic Trade Publishing President Ellie Berger said in a statement. “We are absolutely thrilled — as both readers and publishers — to introduce the devoted fans of the series and a new audience to an entirely new perspective on this modern classic.”
Collins’ original Hunger Games trilogy—The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay—altogether, sold more than 100 million copies and has been translated into more than 50 languages. Moreover, The Hunger Games books appeared on the New York Times bestseller list for more than 260 consecutive weeks (more than five straight years).
After writing the last installment in 2010, Collins teased in 2013 that she was working on a new series, but did not say whether it was related to The Hunger Games.
This time, the novel will be set in the world of Panem, 64 years before the events of the original Hunger Games trilogy—the morning where Katniss Everdeen volunteered as a tribute on the 74th Hunger Games. Presumably, Katniss Everdeen played by Jeniffer Lawrence will not be involved in the upcoming novel.
Based on the previous novels in the series, 74 years before the main novels, the 13 Districts of Panem already tried to initiate a rebellion against the Capital. In the aftermath of the failed attempt, 12 Districts remained to leave District 13 to rubbles. The Hunger Games was a result and served as a reminder that all the other Districts should obediently comply with the Capital’s rule.
The novel will take place 10 years after the first rebellion and will tell the story of Panem during the “Dark Days following a failed rebellion in Panem “With this book, I wanted to explore the state of nature, who we are, and what we perceive is required for our survival,” Collins told the Associated Press in the announcement. “The reconstruction period 10 years after the war, commonly referred to as the Dark Days — as the country of Panem struggles back to its feet — provides fertile ground for characters to grapple with these questions and thereby define their views of humanity.”
On other news, the Lionsgate film studio, who adapted The Hunger Games trilogy into movies, is already looking forward to the next addition to Collins’ franchise given that it received praise and public attention for producing them.
“As the proud home of the Hunger Games movies, we can hardly wait for Suzanne’s next book to be published,” said Joe Drake, chairman of the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, in a recent statement to the Associated Press. “We’ve been communicating with her during the writing process and we look forward to continuing to work closely with her on the movie.”S
Lionsgate turned Collins’ Hunger Games novels into a series of four films, dividing the last novel, Hunger Games: Mockingjay, into a two-part finale. Over the course of the four movies, it earned almost $3 billion dollars an the worldwide box office with the last movie earning $653.4 million.
Collins helped with the movies as an executive producer and a co-screenwriter on the first 2012 movie but distanced herself after she finalized Mockingjay in 2010.
Lionsgate is also known to have produced Twilight, which is one of their platinum franchises along with Collins’ trilogy. The studio earlier licensed The Hunger Games to theme parks and live concert tours being built around the movie franchise.
Additionally, it starred Jenniffer Lawrence who played the main character as Katniss Everdeen in all of the four movies, which helped catapult her acting career in 2012.
Scholastic acquired world English rights to the prequel novel and it will publish in print, digital and audio formats in the US, Canada, the UK and Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand next year. The deal was negotiated by Rosemary Stimola of the Stimola Literary Studio for Suzanne Collins and David Levithan, VP, Publisher, and Editorial Director, for Scholastic.
Global Ice Melting At Rates Faster Than Expected
The global ice, or the size and number of glaciers located across cold spots around the world, is a clear indicator of the effects of global warming. With human’s excessive and consistent use of o-zone depleting resources such as fossil fuels — the rate of global ice is melting will only keep accelerating.
The National Snow and Ice Data Center reported that based on data they have gathered since the1900s, glaciers around the globe are shrinking and melting at an alarming rate.
Arctic sea ice has been in constant general low over the years following the increasing trend of greenhouse gas. Additionally, as the frozen ground across the Arctic melts, it releases a massive amount of methane, a potent greenhouse gas. Scientists say that this effect could make global ice melt accelerate even faster.
A separate study found that parts of the Canadian Arctic are experiencing a rate of permafrost thaw six times the long-term average.
Meanwhile, melted ice is especially notable both in and around Greenland — home to the second largest ice sheet on the planet.
“Communities in #Greenland rely on the sea ice for transport, hunting, and fishing. Extreme events, here flooding of the ice by abrupt onset of surface melt call for increased predictive capacity in the Arctic,” Steffen Olsen, a climate researcher at the Danish Meteorological Institute said in a tweet.
Olsen was referring to Greenland losing 2 billion metric tons of ice. “The high melt is unusual so early in the season but not unprecedented,” Greenland Ice said in a tweet.
Experts are calling the lost ice “not normal” considering that it equates to almost half of Greenland. Roughly 45 percent of the ice sheet surface has been melting. Usually, less than 10 percent of the ice sheet surface is melting at this time of year. According to data from the National Snow and Ice Data Center, Wednesday set a daily record for the widest melt area on that date, with 275,000 square miles.
“I’m losing the ability to communicate the magnitude [of change],” Jeremy Mathis, a longtime Arctic researcher and a current board director at the National Academies of Sciences told Mashable. “I’m running out of adjectives to describe the scope of change we’re seeing.”
On other parts of the globe, a city in western Alaska is experiencing drastic changes to its land formations as the state’s ice and permafrost are starting to thaw away.
“Springtime in Alaska isn’t what it used to be. This is the 3rd time past 21 years we can say” warmest spring of record.” 1998 was the warmest to date, exceeded in 2016 and now 2016 exceeded in 2019. Trend +4.0F (+2.2C) since the 1970s.” Rick Thoman said in a tweet.
The continued ice and permafrost melting in Iceland are causing significant damages in terms of requiring towns and villages like Newtok in western Alaska to relocate to avoid dangers.
“It’s a real challenge because in the US there isn’t the precedence to deal with this and there isn’t the political framework to deal with it either,” said Susan Natali, a scientist and Arctic expert at the Woods Hole Research Center in Massachusetts. “The numbers needing relocation will grow, the costs are going up and people’s lives and cultural practices will be impacted.
“Every year there’s a new temperature record, it’s getting worse and worse and you feel like a broken record saying it. This should be the number one urgent conversation happening right now because it’s not just going to be Alaska, it’s going to be other communities all over the US,” Natali added.
The problem does not only persist in Greenland, the Arctic or Alaska. Global ice is melting all across the globe. “The famed snows of Kilimanjaro have melted more than 80 percent since 1912. Glaciers in the Garhwal Himalaya in India are retreating so fast that researchers believe that most central and eastern Himalayan glaciers could virtually disappear by 2035 […] From the Arctic to Peru, from Switzerland to the equatorial glaciers of Man Jaya in Indonesia, massive ice fields, monstrous glaciers, and sea ice are disappearing, fast,” the National Geographic reported.
This week, the Pope has talked to oil executives in the Vatican to find solutions in the growing problem of global warming. He called for a “radical energy transition” from conventional fossil fuels and develop greener energy alternatives.
