Zombie Attacks in 2012 increasing. Apocalypse or Bath Salts Hype?



Miami Zombie Attack

What comes to mind when you hear the word Zombie? Do you think of a half dead person dragging their feet, with a cold dead face feasting for human blood?. By the way movies portray them, that is just how a zombie would look and act like. But that is just in movies right? People do not really feast off of human flesh, which would be inhumane and just plain weird. This past week in the United States has been sort of a horror “Zombie” like movie, with multiple cannibalism attacks accruing in different states. On Saturday May 26, 2012 a gruesome act of violence accrued on the side of an interstate in Miami, FL.

31 year old homeless man Rudy Eugene chased down and attacked another homeless man Ronald Poppo. Both men were naked, when Eugene began to devour Poppo entire face for up to 18 minutes according to the Miami Herald. At that time Police reported to the scene where they demanded Eugene to stop, and back away from the other man. Eugene refused to acknowledge their request and remained eating the suspect face off. As a result the police fired rounds of shots at him killing him in the process.

“He had his face eaten down to his goatee. The forehead was just bone. No nose, no mouth,” said Sgt. Armando Aguilar, president of the Miami Fraternal Order of Police.

It was reported from several sources that detectives, believe Eugene may have been under the influence of a drug called “Bath Salts”. They described the drug to have the effects of hallucination, Paranoia, rapid heart rates, suicidal thoughts, and dangerously high blood pressure. Poppo now rest at Miami’s Jackson Memorial Hospital where he is labeled in critical condition as reported by NewsOne.

On Wednesday May 30, 2012 another act of inhumane violence had reared its ugly head, this time in Joppa, MD. 21 year old Morgan State University student Alexander Kinyua was charged with first-degree murder, after he confessed of murdering his townhouse roommate 37 year old Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie reported cops to the Baltimore Sun. Kinyua not only murdered his roommate, he sliced his body parts up, and also was reported as eating the victim’s heart and pieces of his brain according to the Huffington Post.

The separate body parts were eventually found by the Harford County Sheriff’s office after the victim’s father alerted the authorities, The Daily mail reported. According to the Baltimore Sun parts of the victims body were found in a trash can outside of a church. Police also found a human head along with hands inside a metal tin in the townhouse.

“I’ve been with the agency 40 years, and I would say this is the first time I can remember … where someone was placed under arrest in Harford County and as a part of his crime he consumed the victim,” Sheriff Jesse Bane told the Sun.

Kinyua act of violence may not have been just any random attack; he seemed to have a dark past and a very short fuse. In January, 2012 Kinyua was dismissed from the Morgan State ROTC program after a disruptive outburst. Last month he was arrested for allegedly fracturing the skull of a classmate with a baseball bat, reported the Baltimore Sun.

There was another event of this magnitude that took place nearly three years ago in San Antonio, TX in July of 2009 that has resurfaced, because of the other “Zombie” like attacks. 33 year old Otty Sanchez was charged with capital murder after she murdered her 3 week old son Scott Wesley Buccholtz-Sanchez. She cut off his head, ate his brain, and chewed off three of his toes reported the Huffington Post.

“At this particular scene you could have heard a pin drop,” San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said. “No one was speaking. It was about as somber as it could have been.”

San Antonia police mentioned that Sanchez had been suffering from schizophrenia, and told police that she killed her son because “The Devil told me to”. Along with this police reported Sanchez screaming to them that she killed her son. She attempted to kill herself with partial slashes to her throat and chest as police found a steak knife and two swords they believe were used in the crime.  Sanchez husband voiced his opinion about his wife.

I want the death penalty for her for what she did. “She killed my son. She should burn in hell.” Scott Buckholz told the associated press.

So it may be uncertain as to why these events are happening around the United States, but it is gaining even the naysayers attention and getting a few people worried. Is this the beginning of what some are saying is a “Zombie Apocalypse”? I personally don’t think so, but one thing is for sure, the books of “How to survive a zombie attack” are getting looked at a little bit more often.

    to all you guys who think this is fake, BS! you guys just don’t want to admit you were wrong. how do you call a guy that cut’s out his own intestin’s and threw them at the police “just mentally ill”. i’m no doctor, but i’m pretty sure if a “human” was to do that he/she would die. and what’s with taking him to the hospital. i mean that’s a little suspishus(sorry for the spellng). how about the guy that ate his girlfriend’s brain and heart. and the guy that ate the hobo’s face, i’m no expert but im sure it doesn’t take 12 shots to kill someone, and i bet you everything that the kill shot was a headshot. and most of you who doen’t believe in zombie’s believe in god(which i do). how is it that you can believe in one intetie controlling the universe but find zombie’s hard to believe in?

    We live. We die. Focus on what you have in life and appreciate it. Protect your family and yourself with any means necessary when the time arrives to do so. As for “Zombies” I agree with “Right person” above. If something really were to happen, freaking out isn’t going to get you anywhere. Buck up. Deal with it and survive.

    Do any of you people believe in God? Demons? Good vs. evil? Did anyone notice these seem to have started after Obama legalized gay marriage? Just an observation. Some might say that opened a gateway from another dimension, to evil.

      I think that there are not only people in the world with views like this but also that these people would post such things on a public forum is a much more frightening prospect than an impending zombie apocalypse. For shame.

    People people quit freaking out about the inevitable. If something like this were to happen then what could really be done? Although this is not something that will happen these incidents are happening for 2 reasons. The first that these people are so incredibly high that they go insane. The second is that this person was totally insane and did this and now after some talk people are doing it for attention stupid right? A little under a year ago scientists took a dog and drained its blood then refilled it with saline solution. The dog then went insane because the brain could not transmit messages throughout the body because there were no longer cells to carry out commands from the brain. Just about the only other way any so called “zombie apocalypse” could happen is pretty much from a super virus spreading throughout the world and however this is not the case.

    In the video they just only say the guy is beating up the other guy and did not say anything about biting his face off. What is wrong with these people? When a person got beat up in the face full of blood and u called that eating the face? Come on. Crazy people do crazy things that doesnt mean they are zombies.

    • Harley Johnson

      Some people may just be saying ”beaten up” because it would be easier for them to comprehend other than making false acquisitions of a ”zombie attack.”

      actually they have released photos of the victim, does not look like he got beat up, i’ve been beat up, a lot, im pretty sure my eye socket was still there along with my eye, and my skull wasn’t bulging out of my face.

      google the pics and you will see. Another man that i saw on the news said he was literally takeing bites and spitting it out. This was no beating, they just couldnt fathom someone eating another person out in the open and asumed with the amount of blood that it was a breating. Thats what i think at leaste.

    First, there was the case of a nude man eating that other guy’s face. Then, a mom was accused of killing her baby, eating his brain and biting off three of his toes. Finally, there was that college student who killed a man and ate part of his brain. AND the Canadian psycho gay p*** star who killed his lover in Montreal, ate parts of the body, and posted it online before being arrested in Berlin.

    All rational human, non-zombie creatures are obviously thinking the same thing: Zombie apocalypse.

    Save the world and your family from a zombie cannibal apocalypse.

      the mom eating her baby’s toes off was in 2009. the canadian guy didn’t eat his victim, he mailed different limbs to political parties around canada. if you’re going to freak out, maybe fully read things first.

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, 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”]



Source: Scholastic

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 GamesCatching 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



Photo by Sergey Kuznetsov on Unsplash

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.
