Secret Service

The United States Secret Service agents which were accused of misconduct in a Cartegena, Colombia, brothel have reveal their true identities bragging about their connection with the President Barak Obama.
As they were partying at the "Pley Club" on Wednesday night, eleven members of the president`s advance team allegedly bragged "we work for Obama" and "we are here to protect him".

The officials spent the night throwing back expensive whiskey and enlisting the services of the club’s prostitutes, according to a bouncer at the club and a police source.
ABC reports that the agents received services from the “highest category” prostitutes and became combative when the bill arrived. The police were called when the club could not contain the dispute
"I expect that investigation to be thorough, and I expect it to be rigorous," he said. "If it turns out that some of the allegations that have been made in the press are confirmed, then of course I'll be angry... We are representing the people of the United States, and when we travel to another country, I expect us to observe the highest standards." Obama said.

Red Sox Manager, Bobby Valentine has questioned the level of commitment displayed by Kevin Youkilis and apologized to his third baseman. But, Youkilis` teammates have come to his defense on Monday.
During an interview aired Sunday night on WHDH-TV, Valentine said he didn't think Youkilis was "as physically or emotionally into the game."

That drew a sharp response from Dustin Pedroia before Monday's 1-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays.

"I know he plays as hard as anybody I've ever seen in my life. I have his back and his teammates have his back," the second baseman said.

After the game, first baseman Adrian Gonzalez also supported his teammate.

"All you can do is tell Youk we love him. All it says is we have each others' backs," he said. "We're pulling for each other on the field and in the clubhouse. We've got a strong bond."

On Monday morning, Valentine said he apologized when Youkilis came into his office and asked for an explanation.

He said he talked to the manager about his comments on Monday but gave no details. Youkilis said his passion for the game has not changed.


Bristol, Conn: Stanford player Nnemkadi Ogwumike has been chosen with the first round in the WNBA draft by the Los Angeles Sparks on Monday.
Ogwumike helped the Cardinal to secure a slot in the Final Four during all four of her seasons at the school, including this year's loss to the champion Baylor. The 6-foot-2 forward, who averaged 22.5 points and 10.2 rebounds this last season, is the first Stanford player to be chosen with the No. 1 pick. Previously three Cardinal players have been selected third overall.
Despite finishing with the fourth worst record in the league at 15-19, the Sparks won the draft lottery in November. They had the smallest chance — 10 percent — of the four eligible teams.
Los Angeles also had the top pick in 2008 and selected Tennessee star Candace Parker, who went on to win Rookie of the Year and MVP honors in her first professional season.
Tennessee guard Shekinna Stricklen went second to the Seattle Storm, who will be without star Lauren Jackson for the first part of the season because she will stay in Australia to train for the Olympics.
By May 18, the WNBA will start its season while the camps will be open for training by April 29.


As we approach the deadline to file tax returns on Tuesday, the Wisconsin office of the Internal Revenue Service provided tips to prevent taxpayers from making common mistakes that can hinder the processing of returns.
The IRS advises taxpayers to submit their returns electronically either through e-file or IRS Free File. Use of the online forms drastically reduces errors because software does the calculations, catches common mistakes and prompts taxpayers for missing information.
Some other suggestions:
If you are using a paper form, make sure to mail it to the correct address. Paper filers should check where to file by visiting IRS.gov or following instructions on the form.
When figuring tax using the tax tables, filers should be sure to use the correct column for the filing status claimed.
Fill in all requested information clearly. Make sure everything is easy to read.
By Tuesday if you are unable to pay your tax, all you`ll have to do is to request for a filing extension. This will prevent you from falling under the heavy hammer of late penalties.
