President Obama and Michelle held hands as they strolled through Fort Stewart Warriors Walk in Hinesville, Georgia, today, mourning fallen soldiers and signing a new Executive Order to help current military families. In her bright red a-line dress, the classic frame purse, the red flats and the pearls (!!), the first lady looked as ladylike and elegant as we’ve ever seen her.
But we gasped even more when we caught another swoon-worthy moment: Obama PDA.
And that concludes today’s edition of Obama PDA. With cheers all around, the pair shared an insanely cute PDA moment (see below).
We let out an audible gasp when we saw Michelle Obama’s outfit today. Then we melted a little inside. For more where that came from, take a look back at all of the pair’s most affectionate moments here.
Afterwards the president addressed an excited crowd with FLOTUS joining him on stage
“The showers or thunderstorms will be spotty enough that chances will favor the race will stay dry.”
Kentucky Derby winner American Pharaoh will lead seven other horses around the 1 13/16-mile track for the $1.5 million purse in the Middle Jewel of the Triple Crown.
“Folks going out on race day and spending the majority of the time outdoors should stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water,” AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Andy Mussoline said. AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures will peak in the mid-90s during the afternoon.
Clouds will limit an otherwise scorching sun from time to time during the entirety of race day, Mussoline said.. EDT Saturday.
“On a muddy track, some horses just absolutely hate it and other horses, they just love it,” Charles Lyman, owner of Maui Meadow Farm, a thoroughbred farm in West Chester, Pennsylvania, told AccuWeather.com before the Kentucky Derby.
Whether it remains dry or not can be a key factor in deciding the race.
Heat and humidity will be on the racing card Saturday for the 140th running of the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.
Midsummerlike warmth and humidity will envelop the Preakness Stakes on Saturday as highs reach near 90 F. “Wearing plenty of sunscreen and having extra to reapply will be helpful as well.”
“The warmth and humidity will help fuel a pop-up shower or thunderstorm during the afternoon and evening that will threaten to interrupt the race,” he said. Post time is 6:18 p.m
Never mind the long distance charges piling up on the victim’s phone.
Most romance scams move at “warp speed”… or even faster. Unfortunately, this doesn’t quite come across in written words unless you know what to look for. Could be a car crash, could be sprained ankle, could be sports injury… It’s all chats. I suggest reading British newspapers and/or books by British authors and see if you notice a different “tone” from your typical American writing.
Dating scams are not that hard to spot if you pay attention. There are some minor ones too.
In one case caught by Australian 60 Minutes, the man caught red-handed at a hotel to pick up money from the victim had 81 victim phone numbers in his phone. The real reason is probably so he can use you in some other scam, such as reshipping or check kiting scams mentioned earlier.
Inheritance “coming soon”
Different countries teach different grammar, diction, and even spelling, even though they are technically all English.
Getting Too Friendly Too Fast
So if a man who claimed to be American uses British spelling of words like theatre and sceptic, be wary. Your “sympathy” should be enough to open your wallet.
If the photo itself is fake, it’s pretty obvious then the rest of the credentials are fake too, and in general, they are vastly exaggerated.
If a photo is duplicated on several profiles, it’s probably stolen and therefore the profile is probably fake.
If the other side drops hints that s/he will get some large inheritance soon, and then you can be together, it’s probably an excuse to get you to pay “her solicitor” and such advance fee scam, in that s/he will pay you back when he got the inheritance. What really happens is this ends up in the scam gang arsenal and is used to scam others as the phone would be showing caller ID of the victim’s location, thus thinking the scammers are not in Africa or Eastern Europe. The usual excuse is “I don’t have money to bribe the customs officials”. This is often done by male scammers pretending to be female, as they can’t fake that.
Another favorite scam excuse is to claim they got into some sort of accident and cannot travel. if the hint had been dropped earlier. an hour a day or more chatting, talking of engagement within a month, and marriage within 3 months…
Plagued with Medical Problems
Bad Grammar / Spelling / Diction
The ostensible reason is to visit you once he got out of the country, which is why he needs your address. As are using homonyms (probably using dictation software instead of actually writing something)
Usually used by male scammers on female victims, he would ask her to send him a mobile phone so he can call her daily and assure her of his love. Also see below.
“Can’t leave the country unless bribes are paid”
Asking You To Send Him/Her a Mobile Phone
This excuse can be easily followed up by “my relatives fell sick” (as mentioned earlier) esp.
And of course, bad English from alleged “Ph.D” is just a huge red flag. It can also be followed up by the “klutz” excuse. No scammer would claim to have only a high school education. The really good ones will simply mention the situation and NOT ask you for money. There is no inheritance and you’ll never see the money again.
Another way to scam money out of victims is the scammer will claim not to be able to leave even though the victim had purchased the ticket for him/her. The scammer will start using endearing terms at 2nd or 3rd chat, professing “instant” connection, “signs” that you’re the one and only, blah blah blah.
If the primary photo is stolen from some other profile, then the profile is obviously a fake one.
Love is Blind (and Deaf)
Another sign of scam is you never saw the other person face to face (or even via Skype), maybe not even voice. Anything will do.
If a photo looks pretty obviously digitally manipulated (the head doesn’t quite fit the body, etc.) then the attached profile is probably fake as well.
British English, even when written are quite different from American English, which is also quite different from Australian English.
If the other side claims to have medical problems, or have relatives that have medical problems, beware that it’s probably an excuse to get you to open your wallet later, or to avoid “flying out to meet you in person”. Most claim to have graduate or doctorate level education. The truth is Africa is not as corrupt as it used to be, and this excuse is getting really lame.
Asking You for Your Physical Address
A Real Klutz. They share some common signs:
To search a profile photo, there are two primary tools: TinEye.com, and Google Search by Image
