Do you drop the “r” from the end of your words, and say “fo” instead of “for”? Do you use an “f” sound instead of “th” to say “teef” as oppose to “teeth”? Then you just may be qualified for this position. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency most notably known in the hood, as NARCS, is in need of an Ebonics translator to transcribe conversations recorded from wiretapping, also know as “the wire“. Therefore, if you know that when Lil Bootsie says “herr” he probably really means “hair” then you may be perfect for this job.
Here’s a quick test for you: Is “stacks” a noun or a verb? If you said verb then you should probably continue your education, and seek employment elsewhere.
Here are the details of the job position. They will be hiring nine new translators in Atlanta, GA (lol). Don’t think of this job in terms of snitching, think of it as an employment opportunity.
The Department’s Atlanta field division plans to hire 9 translators to handle the task, reports thesmokinggun.com. Their duties will include deciphering “telephonic monitoring of court ordered nonconsensual intercepts, consensual listening devices, and other media.”
The hiring is part of a contract bid put out by the Department for some 2100 new linguists who will cover some 114 languages. Ebonics is listed as a “common” language exclusive to the United States.
“DEA’s position is, it’s a language form we have a need for,” Special Agent Michael Sanders told CNN. “I think it’s a language form that DEA recognizes a need to have someone versed in to conduct investigations.”
Oh, and they are also hiring Ebonics translators who also speak Spanish. Se habla español ebonics!
The cute couple, Tia Mowry and husband, Cory Hardict were spotted at the Audi Emmy Kick-off party at Cecconi’s Restaurant in West Hollywood. With so much crazy news happening, it’s nice to take a break and focus on the ones who still use hard work as a tool to success. Check out Tia and Cory hitting the red carpet.
*Dead* If this rumor turns out to be true, I just may audition for a Vh1 reality show, because the side pieces are on a come up. Someone please tell me how Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander went from jump-off to wifey status in a matter of weeks. Wasn’t she just with T.I?
According to sources, Shaquille O’Neal may have proposed to Hoopz in St. Louis at Sahara Mediterranean Cuisine and Hookah Lounge. The owner of the restaurant swears he and his wife saw Shaquille O’Neal get down on one knee and to give an unidentified woman a ring. Read what Sam David had to say below, and let me know what you think.
I heard about this yesterday, but thought it couldn’t be true, until TMZ broke the news today that Hoopz and Shaquille were coupled up at Waffle House near Hoopz’ hometown in Maryville, Tennessee. It seems that unidentified woman of St. Louis is Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander. Before TMZ broke the story, Sports By Brooks exclusively revealed Shaquille O’Neal has been kicking it in Maryville, TN with Hoopz, although he is with the Boston Celtics.
Get the juicy details when you read on, while I have an OMG! moment to myself…You know where you found all the juicy details first…
Hoopz of Flavor of Love fame was spotted at a Waffle House in Tennessee on a date with Shaquille O’Neal. You know you are on jump-off status if your date begins or ends at a waffle house in Tennessee. I just have one question for Hoopz and Shaquille O’Neal, was this the end of the date or the beginning?
Let me just say Hoopz must be talented, because she almost stole T.I. from Tiny, Dwayne Wade from Siovaughn, and according to more sources, Shaquille O’Neal From Shaunie.
You have to read the details of the date from TMZ, and boy I just found out some more news on this story, so stay tuned for the next post…
Beyonce and Jay Z are definitely getting in their QT time in Europe this last week. It’s good to know that a power couple like them can be lovebirds. Check out Beyonce and Jay Z in Monaco and in Cannes, France yesterday. Beyonce looks hot in a bikini while yachting; Jay Z continues his chivalry by helping his wife into a boat….they just look really cute.
While Jay-Bey is still kicking it, Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren are officially divorced. Tiger and Elin wished each other well in a joint statement. I guess that’s easy to do since she’s walking away with $100 Million and 5 times that in assets. They both have custody over their two kids.
