Ultra Music Festival Ends on a Bad Note

Ultra Music Festival Ends on a Bad Note

ऀUltra Music Festival is a yearly electronic music festival that takes place in Miami every March. The event is held in Bayfront Park and has been a staple in the Miami music scene since 1999. Although Ultra brings the city of Miami a great amount of fiscal benefits, there have been more and more reported tragedies that have occurred during the festival that have city officials wondering if hosting the festival is even worth it.

ऀThis year, the festival brought around 50,000 – 60,000 people each day but also resulted in over 80 arrests and many more than that needed emergency medical treatment. Many people are concerned about the arrests and safety concerns of those in attendance and are looking for the best option.

ऀAside from arrests, Ultra Music Festival resulted in one death this year as well as the trampling of a security guard on site. 21 year old Adonis Escoto was found dead in a parked car that weekend after complaining of dizziness. Escoto’s friends believed he had too much to drink and just needed to rest. That night, he was pronounced dead. The same weekend, Erica Mack, who was working as a security guard for the event, was trampled after a mob of people took down a fence in an attempt to get in without tickets. Mack is in critical condition and suffered a broken leg and brain hemorrhaging.

Now, the mayor and city commissioner want to cancel Ultra Music Festival or at the very least change the venue to a safer environment. Only time will tell what the resolution will be.

Oprah Gives Lindsay Lohan A Chance To Shine

Oprah Gives Lindsay Lohan A Chance To Shine


Last year, Oprah sat down with Lindsay Lohan on her segment of Oprah's Next Chapter to discuss the ups and downs of her life. This year, Oprah offered Lindsay Lohan her very own reality television show. The show, called Lindsay, debuted on Sunday night, March 9th at 10 p.m. and surprisingly produced a lower than expected amount of viewers.

The show will highlight her struggles, her relationship with her parents, siblings, the public and most importantly, herself. Lindsay has had a lot of issues since starring in The Parent Trap. In 2007 alone she was convicted of 2 DUI’s and was in rehab 3 times. From 2010-2012 she was charged with theft, violation of probation and entered rehab 2 more times. In 2013, she was caught for reckless driving, lying to a cop, and went to rehab for the 6th time. At this point, Lindsay Lohan says “I know that this is my last shot at doing what I love to do.” She and Oprah both have high hopes that she will be able to recover for good this time and that the reality show will help explain how she got to where she is and where she plans to go from there.

Star Trek Actor Chris Pine Arrested for DUI

Star Trek Actor Chris Pine Arrested for DUI


Chris Pine is a 33 year old actor who is well known for his role as Captain Kirk in the Star Trek movies. Pine has also been featured on television shows such as CSI: Miami, ER and Saturday Night Live. Earlier this month, Chris Pine was pulled over in New Zealand after he left the wrap party for his upcoming film “Z for Zachariah.”

Pine was pulled over and the court found that his blood-alcohol level was 0.11%. The legal limit in New Zealand is 0.08%. Pine told the cops that he had drank four vodka drinks during the party and his legal representative told the judge that he knew he made the wrong decision that night. They pinned the issue on his emotional suffering after enduring negative publicity that has since affected his acting career.
No matter what, there is no excuse for driving under the influence. Eventually, the court found Chris Pine “entirely remorseful” and he was fined $79 and had his New Zealand driver’s license suspended for six months.

The History of St. Patrick’s Day

The History of St. Patrick’s Day


ऀSt. Patrick’s Day is celebrated every year on March 17th. The story of St. Patrick is quite an interesting one. Most of us assume that St. Patrick was Irish –but he, in fact, was not. When he was 16 years old he was captured by Irish raiders. He spent 6 years in prison and eventually converted to Christianity while being held captive. Once he was released he became a missionary in Ireland.

When he died on March 17th, 461 AD he wasn’t well known. It wasn’t until centuries later that he was named the Patron Saint of Ireland. One myth tells us that he was known for cleansing the country of Ireland of paganism and also for using the 3 leaves of the shamrock to explain the holy trinity. Eventually, people in Ireland started wearing shamrocks on March 17th to honor their Patron Saint Patrick and celebrate their Irish pride.

Wearing a shamrock evolved into wearing green every March 17th to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. St. Patrick’s Day celebrates the Patron Saint of Ireland as well as the culture, heritage and emergence of Christianity in Ireland.
