T.I. recently spoke on his growing Akoo clothing line and why higher end fashion brands should be wary about how they treat customers. Luxury lines should acknowledge how much money goes into their pockets courtesy of urban consumers. "I think they will do it as long as we allow them to. As long as we continue to promote their sh*t. As long as we continue to buy their shit. The power of the urban market is in the dollar. Black people spend like nobody's business. We are the most spending race I think there is. You can have a black man that makes $14,000 or $15,000 dollars a year, and you can have an Asian, or a Latin, a Mexican, or a Caucasian who makes $14,000 a year. That black man is going to spend way more money on Gucci or Louis or Jordans or AKOO.
Robin Roberts on keeping her girlfriend secret for so long: Some people like their anonymity. This is what's right for me." "Love is love, and I'm grateful to have that. Sometimes there's a stigma attached to how people view you if you're living a certain way," she continued. "But I don't care - you gotta live your life." "You gotta find what happiness is and what it means for you, and you can't get caught up in what someone is saying about you on Twitter."

"VANISHED INTO THIN AIR" (UNSOLVED)
Mitchell Owens disappeared from his home in 1983 and hasn't been seen since. His mother was attacked by an unknown male and strangled unconscious. She survived, however, Mitchell was missing.
A man posing as a police officer had called her home earlier. She had also received several other suspicious phone calls prior to the assault and kidnapping.
Inexplicably, the police decided to treat Mitchell as a runaway, despite him being just 4-years-old.
His case remains unsolved.
On February 3, 1983, Ona Owens from Menlo Park, Calif. was asleep when she was suddenly awaken by a man who had crawled through her window and began attacking her. Ona's three children slept through the assault except for her 4-year-old son, Mitchell Deon Owens who woke up and came into the room. Ona screamed for him to run away, and as she fought for her life the man struck her over and over again and strangled her with a phone cord until she lost consciousness.
When Ona was found the next day, Mitchell was gone. Ona was taken to the hospital and she told the Mercury News that it took threes days for authorities to find her and to begin looking for her son. Ona alleged that because she was poor and black her case was not being investigated seriously and an investigator told her she had "one less mouth to feed."
For several years after Mitchell was taken, Ona lived in fear as she keep getting telephone calls from an unidentified man who said he was going to take her other two sons. The man has never been identified and it is not known if the call was a prank by a cruel person or if the man was connected to Mitchell's disappearance.
Ona thought she might have met the man at the Enlisted Men's Club at Moffett Field Naval Air Station in Mountain View. She thinks he may have followed her home. She also thinks it could have been another man that knocked on her door a few hours before the attack. The man was dressed in a police uniform and was there to ask Owen about the police reports she had made the month before about her stolen purse. The police department had no record of anyone assigned to stop by Ona's home.
Mitchell Owens would be 35-years-old now and is probably still out there somewhere, not remembering he was abducted and not even aware that his mother is searching and waiting for him to come home.
"THE UNEXPLAINED" (TIME TRAVELERS?)
Project Pegasus veteran William Stillings alleges that he was the subject of a huge variety of experiments as a child that had him traveling tremendous distances through time. Not only was Stillings sent back to various awesome moments in history, but he also served as part of a secret program; he also claims that Barrack Obama was in this secret program with him.
British Air Marshal Sir Victor Goddard has one of the weirdest and most believable stories regarding time travel. In 1935, Goddard was piloting a plane over an abandoned airfield in Edinburgh when he got caught in an unusual storm. He almost lost control in the turbulence, but when he righted himself he looked down and was shocked to find the airfield totally refurbished, with strange-looking planes with Royal Air Force markings being worked on by mechanics in blue uniforms. He told some of his compatriots about his weird trip, but since he had no physical proof, nothing really came of it. That is, until four years later when the RAF changed their mechanics’ coverall colors from brown to blue.
One of the most attractive elements of time travel is the ability to make a killing on the stock market. After all, just a basic knowledge of financial history could let you make investments in stocks like Apple that would pay huge dividends. Hence the story of Andrew Carlssin, allegedly a Wall Street trader who jaunted back from the year 2256 to make a killing on the market. The story claims that, starting with just $800, Carlssin was able to build a $350 million fortune in just two weeks. After he got busted in 2003, the time traveler offered “historical information” such as the location of Osama Bin Laden and the AIDS vaccine. Unfortunately, was this a hoax, did Carlssin actually exist? But some time-travel believers still insist that he did and this is just a giant cover-up.
"FAMILY MASSACRE MYSTERY"
Richard Cowden and his wife Belinda June lived together with their five year old son David James, and their five month old daughter Melissa Dawn. They owned a small cozy house in White City, Oregon, a perfect place to raise a young family.
The Cowdens loved to camp, but they had not planned to go camping that Labor Day weekend of 1974. Richard had planned to haul a load of gravel for his driveway and spend the weekend getting the job done. Unexpectedly, the truck broke down, so without thinking twice, they decided to go up to the Siskiyou Mountains for a family camping trip.
They had planned to camp out until Sunday September 1st and then stop at Belinda’s mother’s house for dinner before heading back home. Belinda’s mother lived only about a mile away from the campground. Early on Sunday morning, Richard and David were seen at the general store which was only less than a mile away from their campsite. There they bought a quart of milk, then they were seen heading back in the direction they had come from. It was the last time they were seen
After waiting for her daughter and her family for hours, Belinda’s mother became worried that they had failed to show up. She then grabbed her keys and decided to pay the campsite a visit to find out what was holding them up. When she arrived, she saw the family’s car parked and the campsite undisturbed. On the picnic table she found the quart of milk, Belinda’s purse and Melissa’s diaper bag. It was as if the family had just stepped away momentarily. As she walked around the campsite, she discovered both Richard’s expensive wristwatch and wallet containing $23 laying on the ground by the creek. She tried to keep her calm and waited for them, thinking they would be back any minute.
After waiting for about an hour, she finally decided to call the Sheriff. Officers searched the area until it grew so dark they couldn’t see a thing. The area was searched everyday for over a week, but not even the smallest clue suggesting a possible scene arouse. There was no sign of a struggle, it was as if they had just disappeared out of thin air. Robbery was obviously not a motive since everything was left at the campsite. If they had drowned in the creek nearby, there bodies would have surfaced by then.
Could they have vanished voluntarily? Richard and Belinda had no more debts than the average couple, they were not behind on any payments and Richard made more then enough money to support his family. So if not robbery, and both the possibilities of them having drowned or voluntarily disappeared out of the way, What happened to the Cowdens? Officers could not figure it out.
Seven months went by without any explanation of their disappearance. When the case started to feel like it was going nowhere, Oregon officers caught a break. In April of 1975, two men hunting deep in the Siskiyou woods came upon remains of what looked to be human bones. Officers were quickly called to the scene and an investigation began.
Four corpses were found, that of a man, a woman, a young child and an infant, the remains of the Cowden family had been finally found. Belinda and David’s remains were found stuffed in a small cave, they both had suffered from several .22 caliber gunshots. Baby Melissa’s remains were also found in the cave but the autopsy showed she had died from severe blows to her head. Richard’s body was not found inside the cave with the rest of his family, but several feet outside. His body was too decomposed to tell exactly how he had died.
Thinking of the possibility that Richard could have murdered his own family, detectives searched the area for a gun or other weapon. If Richard was indeed responsible for the death’s of his family and his own suicide, then some sort of weapon would still be around. No gun or weapon were ever found, not even the smallest clue to give the officer’s of White City a lead.
It has now been 40 years since the young family from Oregon went on the camping trip that would end their lives. The questions are still on the surface waiting to be answered, what happened to the Cowden family? Who murdered them and why? Sadly, we might never know the answers.
