SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – Many people familiar with the Conception dive boat, its rich history, and divers who have been on it are speaking out after the tragic incident in the pre dawn hours off Santa Cruz Island.

It made me so sad, said Maya Upton a local resident who came to the harbor after the crisis began unfolding. I thought about all the people who are going to be suffering in the days to come. 

Upton brought flowers and placed them on a fence line by Sea Landing, the dock where the Conception is normally located.

The loss of multiple  lives on board the Conception dive boat, listed for now at eight with 26 missing, is deeply felt here.

At the flower  memorial coming together Upton said,  I wanted to do something to give people a place to come and a place to think about this and to share some sweet words. 

Nearby Anthony Clark recalled a trip he took on the Conception to do diving in the Channel Islands waters.  I remember thinking to myself that everything was very well kept. At no point that I ever think that the boat was out of shape. The crew was amazing, we had a really good time. Everybody was very friendly.  They went over the safety precautions and again it is not something that you ever think is going to happen.

On his trip, Clark took a video walking through the boat including the galley,   and traveled  down stairs to the sleeping quarters where there were bunks .  He said it was tight but never thought twice about an evacuation issue.   Before they took off,  safety plans were  reviewed.

The Conception was launched in 1981 after it was built in Long Beach.

Kevin Hart ‘going to be just fine’ after California car crash, back injury, wife says – NBC News

September 2nd, 2019

Comic actor Kevin Hart’s wife says he’s “going to be just fine” following a weekend car crash that left him with a major back injury.

Eniko Hart was questioned by a TMZ reporter while visiting him at the hospital Monday. She gave no details beyond that assurance, and the actor’s press representatives did not immediately return messages seeking comment.

Hart was a passenger in a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda that went off a highway above Malibu in the early morning hours of Sunday. It rolled down an embankment, after police said the driver lost control while turning from a canyon road onto Mulholland Highway.

The 40-year-old Hart and the car’s driver, Jared Black, both had back injuries. Another passenger, 31-year-old Rebecca Broxterman, only complained of pain.

Justin Bieber Shares Candid Post About Making “Terrible Decisions” Amid Struggle With Fame – Deadline

September 2nd, 2019

Justin Bieber shared a heartfelt message with fans Monday detailing his struggles with growing up in the spotlight, including being “resentful” and using “heavy drugs.”

The chart-topping performer, who became an international superstar as a teenager, said in a lengthy Instagram post that early fame led him to make “every bad decision.”

He began by saying he understands what it feels like to be overwhelmed by life, job responsibilities, family and relationships; and warned of the pitfalls of childhood stardom.

“Have u noticed the statistics of child stars and the outcome of their life? There is an insane pressure and responsibility put on a child whose brain, emotions, frontal lobes (decision making) aren’t developed yet,” he wrote. “No rationality, defiant, rebellious, things all of us have to go through. But when you add the pressure of stardom, it does something to you that is quite unexplainable.”

The singer-songwriter, now 25, added that being constantly told how great he was as a teen sensation only made things worse.

“I went from a 13-year-old boy from a small town to being praised left and right by the world, with millions saying how much they loved me and how great I was,” he shared. “You hear these things enough as a young boy and you actually start believing it. Rationality comes with age.”

By the time he reached age 18, Bieber said he hadn’t developed any life skills beyond music and performing.

“Everyone did everything for me, so I never even learned the fundamentals of responsibility,” he wrote. “By this point, I was 18 with no skills in the real world, with millions of dollars and access to whatever I wanted.”

The “Sorry” singer said he turned to drugs and was abusive in his relationships.

“I started doing pretty heavy drugs at 19 and abused all of my relationships. I became resentful, disrespectful to women, and angry,” he explained. “I became distant to everyone who loved me, and I was hiding behind a shell of a person that I had become. I felt like I could never turn it around. It’s taken me years to bounce back from all of these terrible decisions, fix broken relationships, and change relationship habits.”

He concluded by crediting his marriage to Hailey Baldwin with helping him learn “patience, trust, commitment, kindness, humility and all of the things it looks like to be a good man.”

Simone Biles Breaks Silence on Brother’s Triple Murder Charges – E! Online

September 2nd, 2019

Simone Biles is ready to address some tough family news.

On Monday evening, the Olympic gymnast took to Twitter and spoke out about the headlines surrounding her older brother Tevin Biles-Thomasarrest for triple murder.

“Still having a hard time processing last week’s news,” she shared on social media.

“My heart aches for everyone involved, especially for the victims and their families. There is nothing that I can say that will heal anyone’s pain, but I do want to express my sincere condolences to everyone affected by this terrible tragedy,” Simone continued. “I ask everyone to please respect my family’s privacy as we deal with our pain. XO.”

Just last week, Tevin was arrested and charged with murder following a fatal shooting on New Year’s Eve.

The 24-year-old, who was on active duty in the Army when he was arrested, is being held without bail in the Liberty County, Georgia jail and is set to appear in court next week.

While Simone has kept a low-profile since the arrest, the athlete was able to spend time with friends over the weekend. “Girls day to drink happy thoughts,” she wrote on Instagram while celebrating the Labor Day weekend.

Simone and Tevin grew up in Ohio and were adopted by their grandparents, who Simone often refers to as mom and dad.

“My biological mom was suffering from drug and alcohol abuse and she was in and out of jail,” the gold medalist previously shared. “My parents saved me. They’ve set huge examples of how to treat other people, and they’ve been there to support me since day one. There’s nothing I could say to them to thank them enough.”

In 2017, the gold medalist shared a series of photos with her brother. “Everyone says we look like twins but we don’t see it,” she wrote on Twitter.
