The Oklahoma City Thunder had a 29-point victory over the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 1 of the NBA Western Conference Semifinals on Monday, May 14, 2012, according to NBA.com. OKC Thunder routs the LA Lakers, 119-90, at the Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City, OK.

Russell Westbrook led OKC with a near triple-double, 27 points, 7 rebounds and 9 assists. NBA scoring champion Kevin Durant scored 25 points for the Thunder.

Kobe Bryant and Andrew Bynum scored 20 points apiece for the Lakers.

The Thunder took a 15-point halftime lead, opened the third quarter with a 15-2 blitz filled with crowd-pleasing 3-pointers and dunks, and never looked back. The final margin ended up being the fourth-largest in the history of the Oklahoma City franchise, including its years in Seattle.

The Lakers loss matched the 12th-largest defeat in LA postseason history, and the sixth worst of Bryant’s career. Three of those losses came in close-out games when L.A. was done for the series. Once was the start of a four-game sweep. The other two times, the Lakers came back to win the next game – both during their run to the 2000 NBA title.

The Time Magazine cover photo of Jamie Lynne Grumet breastfeeding her three-year old boy went viral.

Grumet’s featured photo on the latest Time Magazine issue features a cover story about “attachment parenting.” The Time magazine cover photo for its May 2012 issue was taken by Martin Schoeller. Grumet is one of four breastfeeding mothers who were photographed by Schoeller.

Schoeller explained that “When you think of breast-feeding, you think of mothers holding their children, which was impossible with some of these older kids.” The photographer added that he “liked the idea of having the kids standing up to underline the point that this was an uncommon situation.”

Attachment parenting is a way of taking care the children through breastfeeding and sleeping with them, and carrying them in slings.

The 26-year-old Grumet is mother and parenting blogger who adopts the “attachment parenting” philosophy.

70-year-old virgin Pam Shaw reveals that she is now ready to lose her virginity.

Shaw is a 70-year-old cabaret singer known as “The Sexational Pam.” She said that her ideal man is someone who is tall, dark and must be a handsome millionaire.

The 70-year-old Shaw revealed that she had several marriage proposals over the years which she turned down. Among those who courted her include an oil rig worker in Blackpool, singers Tom Jones and Englebert Humperdinck.

The 70-year-old virgin said that “In 1976 I was proposed to by an oil rig worker in Blackpool. I said yes but later broke it off when I realised I didn’t fancy him. Men saw the outfits I wore on stage and thought I would be easy. But I’ve never really been intimate with a man, just a bit of kissing. I had a sexy stage name and dressed sexy but that was all for my career.”

Pam explains that at her age, she “feel I am ready to give marriage a go and maybe go to bed with a man. You are never too old for anything. Just look at Joan Collins.”
