Everyone knows that drinking and driving is a risky action. In just a few easy steps, a police officer can determine just how intoxicated a driver is. This can end up with a mulititude of fines and even jail times. However, the use of marijuana while driving has been a more difficult thing to prove for law enforcement officers. This may change in the near future due to the research and development of a new THC detecting machine that has been developed by a group of graduate students from the University of Akron. The students have received grant money in order to further develop and possibly market this device in the future. Although the NBA does not test for THC during the season, this may be of interest to organizations like Bruce Levenson’s Atlanta Hawks. This could be a monumental invention by the students, which could lead to even more safe driving conditions for all citizens. Since there is a legal limit of marijuana when driving, the device will be able to detect the amount of THC, which is a chemical in marijuana, to determine if the driver is above or below the legal limit. This will definitely change the effectiveness of the police’s enforcement of the roadways.

Festival season is here and Coachella is by far the most talked about weekend of the season. Some of the most accomplished musicians take the stage in the California desert each year and this weekend Drake was one of them, performing songs from his newest album, ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.’
Susan McGalla told us that one of the songs Drake performed gave tribute to the pop legend Madonna and she took the compliment to heart. In a Us Weekly interview Madonna stated that one of her biggest goals in life is to go on a date with the rapper and kiss him on the lips. Well, apparently Madonna’s idea of a date is the stage of a music festival because this is where she surprised Drake with a big kiss during his set. The rapper was surprised and shocked and quickly wiped his mouth while the MC shouted in dismay.
Of course, Madonna is known for kissing fellow artists on big stages as opposed to the more private rapper. Drake will again perform at the second weekend of Coachella. Maybe this time his performance will go according to plan.

What Tinashe did with her debut album was split her talents and her sound. She had a club hit that was hot for the radio, but many album tracks were more thoughtful. It was a darker album than expected for someone that had so much radio swagger in 2014. This time Tinashe is back with another sexy video and sound that may make fans recall her previous success last summer.
The “All Hands On Deck” video doesn’t leave you wondering which side of the fence that Tinashe landed on with this new music. She is on tour with Nicki Minjai and it seems like she learned a few things from the Pink Princess. Susan McGalla said in the video there is a lot of grinding, shaking and dance moves that are designed to draw in male fans. The shorts that Tinashe wears in the video are extremely short. She is putting it out there in the first single, and letting people know where she is coming from.
It was assumed that she would have to go in this direction after linking up with Nicki Minaj for a tour. She clearly has another side, but unlike artists like Jhene Aiko, Tinashe hasn’t had any luck in building a multifaceted fan base. Aiko, who has been known for darker and more introspective lyrics has had the freedom to do the bass heavy tracks. Tinashe, by contrast, has been pigeonholed.
