SANTA BARBARA, CA -During a search for evidence at the Neverland Valley Ranch, investigators discovered a corpse that has been identified as that of Michael Jackson, Santa Barbara police officials announced Tuesday.

“Coroners have officially pronounced Michael Jackson dead. From what we can tell, he died between 18 and 20 years ago,” forensic investigator Tim Holbrooke said. “We are not certain, at this time, who-or what-has been standing trial in that Santa Maria courthouse.”

According to Holbrooke, Jackson ‘s corpse was buried just inches below a stretch of the miniature-train tracks that run throughout Neverland. The largely desiccated corpse wore the remains of a red, zipper-covered leather jacket and a single glove.

“We positively identified the body as Jackson by his dental records and DNA,” Holbrooke said. “But even before we conducted a single forensic test, we began to suspect that that we’d uncovered the real Michael, and that the disturbing figure claiming to be Jackson was a fake.”

Holbrooke said that, although the corpse was in an advanced stage of decomposition, when investigators compared the body to early-career publicity photos of Jackson , they saw a striking resemblance in bone structure and facial features. But when they compared the body to photos taken after 1987, the resemblance was negligible.
“This discovery raises a lot of questions, but it also sheds light on a number of disturbing incidents,” Holbrooke said. “Frankly, Jackson had been acting pretty strange.”

Forensic experts and music critics are postulating that Jackson was dead before the release of the multi-platinum album Bad. Detectives are currently analyzing the lyrics to “Man In The Mirror” for any clues relating to a look-alike entity that many suspect murdered the youngest member of the Jackson 5 and assumed his identity.

“We believe that Neverland served as some sort of freakishly whimsical tomb constructed by Jackson ‘s killer,” Holbrooke said. “We also suspect that all of the iniquities that occurred on that ranch were the work of the imposter. I wouldn’t have ever thought it possible, but we are looking at a situation where the sexual abuse of a 13-year-old cancer patient is the tip of the iceberg.”

Holbrooke said that, while the living Jackson is the leading suspect in the murder investigation, he “could be another victim of some sort.”

“Basically, we have no idea what type of creature we are dealing with,” Holbrooke said.
A member of the investigative team that discovered Jackson ‘s body described the experience as “otherworldly.”

“As we neared the perimeter of Neverland, the dogs started whining and howling like crazy,” Santa Barbara County detective Frank Poeller said. “We had to pull them into the house. When we got to Jackson ‘s bedroom, one of them almost choked himself to death on his leash trying to get out through the window. Minutes later, the same dog led us to the corpse.”

A representative from Jackson ‘s self-created label, MJJ Productions, said he was not surprised to find out that the current Jackson is an imposter.

“When we were recording ‘Heal The World’ for Dangerous, I could tell something was terribly, terribly wrong,” MJJ manager Luke Allard said. “Michael didn’t seem like himself anymore. He’d demand bizarre food and sit for hours in a hyperbaric chamber. His appearance began to become more and more peculiar. Soon afterwards, he started wearing a mask and confiding in a chimpanzee.”

“I remember thinking, ‘This man has become a monster,'” Allard said. “If only I’d known how right I was.”

Allard said he thinks that the imposter broke ties with Jackson ‘s former friends and surrounded himself with children who were too young to notice the radical change.
Vanity Fair reporter Beth Pither visited Neverland in 1994.

“A strangely fearful staff member led me to Jackson , but ran off before I opened the door,” Pither said. “Standing there with my hand on an ice-cold doorknob, I heard strange, unnatural sounds-leathery wings flapping, a sorrowful wail, and loud hissing. A wave of dread passed through me as I opened the door, but all I found was Michael and some kids in pajamas eating ice cream and watching 101 Dalmatians.”

While their claims have not been corroborated, other Neverland visitors have reported that when when Jackson entered a room, lights flickered, faucets ran blood-red, and screams escaped from the walls.

To aid in the investigation, the FBI enlisted Dr. Richard Weingarden, a noted expert on the paranormal from UC Santa Barbara. After only two hours, Weingarden abandoned the project.
“The smell of sulfur, the decaying facial features, the bizarrely high-pitched voice-it sounds exactly like…” Weingarden said, trailing off. “I’m sure it’s nothing. Not a big deal. Nothing to be terrified about, certainly. I have to go. I’ve got a family.”

Thomas Sneddon, the prosecutor in Jackson ‘s child-molestation lawsuit, said it remains to be seen how the shocking discovery will affect the trial.
Megan Gustafson, who left her post as president of the Akron , OH Michael Jackson Fan Club after the singer was accused of molestation, offered a positive view of the grisly revelation.

“This is very disturbing news,” Gustafson said. “But to be honest, it’s kind of a relief too. Thriller and Off The Wall are really amazing records. Now I can pull them out of my ‘ruined by child abuse’ storage bin and start listening to them again.”

Southwest of Kunning, the capital city of Yunnan Province is the Dongchuan Red Land. It is nothing but a name on a China map but far more beautiful than any man-made nature attractions in life. The reason it is not in any destinations map of China? Lack of infrastructure, transportation, and lodging facilities made the place of color collections almost impossible to reach.

At 2600 feet above sea level, the Red Land is a remote area, even its people are not aware how beautiful their land is! Some very adventurous people were not so greedy, though, sharing us some of the most mesmerizing photos of the land.

The color of Dongchuan is like a painting but it has a scientific explanation. The red soil is the result of years of oxidation of iron and other metallic minerals found in its contents. The colors were of course, the crops grown in the town. Among are potatoes, oats, corn, oil flower, and other types of vegetables.

The Red Land is best in mid November, where its different hues are at full. This one is taken in September when the oil flowers are at its best, covering the reddish land white.

Today, Dongchuan Red Land is renamed Lexiaguo, meaning the place where beautiful colors set. It is intended to promote the land’s tourism.

6 months plus months of personal training got Jovit Baldivino 2 million pesos in the first ever Pilipinas Got Talent (PGT), the country’s leading talent search show. Jovit started as one of the strong contenders from Luzon, serenading the audience of his rock star voice.

The new millionaire sang Journey’s ‘Faithfully’, an all-time favorite revived by now Filipino vocalist Arnel Pineda, the first time. He was in humble polo and slacks that time. Obviously, he wowed not only the audience but the judges of the TV show.

Jovit appeared in a sleek jacket and dark denims in the semi-finals night. This time, he already grew his fans double. He is also a million-hit worth in the prestigious online video site, You Tube. The once simple boy sported a browned hair, which one of the judges commented on. He won that phase with ease.

Apparently, he was the favorite of the crowd when he sang his final’s piece ‘Too Much Love Will Kill You’ last night. This time though, he contended with dancing greats Velasco Brothers and Baguio Metamorphosis, equally cool Ezra Band, and singing sensation Ingrid.

The people have spoken, Jovic Baldivino topped the text votes. He won 2 million pesos and the pride of being the very first PGT winner. Once a Siomai vendor, Jovic can go back to school and a new singing career with apparently the channel that launched the talent search.

Freedom to every Filipino here and abroad! It is the 112th celebration of the Philippines Independence Day and it started real early! Aside from not enjoying a holiday (since the government moved the holiday on Monday in connection to the economic holiday RAs), I have no much complaint. The metro rail trains are free from 7 to 9 am today and later at 5 to 7 pm. It is going to be a busy day anyway, traffics everywhere as the celebration will be in hosted in different areas in the metro. Being in the office with free air con, coffee and water, and internet connection is a better treat!

I contented myself with reading some tweets and news. At 7 am, the outgoing President offered flowers to the National Hero monument in the Rizal Memorial Park. The Philippine flag was raised simultaneous with those in Kawit Cavite, attended by Justice Secretary Renato Corona, and in Caloocan by Metropolitan Manila Development Authority chairman Oscar Inocentes. The opening ceremonies, including that of the President’s Independence Speech, will be held there.

At 3 am, a parade will commence. There will be 10 floats that will showcase the administration’s 10-point agenda. These will showcase the country’s “global achievers” including CNN hero Efren Peñaflorida, beauty pageant titlists, sports achievers, Finance Secretary Margarito Teves, and former education secretary Jesli Lapus.

A 30-minute firework display will follow shortly after the parade, which will also represent the closing of the celebration. The official holiday will be enjoyed on Monday, June 14, 2010.

They say parents will not do anything stupid to their child. But what did Mohammed did to his two year old boy, Hardy Rizal? The boy, at his age is overweight, has tantrums, and cannot run or play around with other kids. Those are not the worst, though. The boy, in his young age puffs cigarettes like a pro! His average is 40 sticks a day!

His father, Mohammed, 30 years old and a fishmonger started giving him cigarettes when he was 18 months old. Hardy is apparently suffering from nicotine addiction; getting angry, screaming, and banging his head on the walls of their home in a fishing village in South Sumatra if he is not given one. Though his father is not concerned with the apparent heath problems of his kid, her 26 years old mother Diana says she knows her son is sick.

The villagers confessed that the authorities promised to buy the family a car if they let the boy quit. In Indonesia, that may be the first step in solving a health and social issue but in our country, we call that bribery.
