We donated $1000 to the Philippines! Thank you all for coming out to our jam last month. It was such a great turn out and was more than any of us could ask for. All of this would definitely would not have been possible without you all. Thank you guys again!
Bboys, poppers, lockers, rockers, groovers, and beat-killers of DFW:
Get down with us for our 4th jam!!
2v2 Bboying: Fist Fight ($200 Cash Prize)
WINNERS: Mighty Beat Rockers Jorge and Danny
-A team must win a specific number of rounds to win the battle. Instead of judges giving you crap excuses when they weren’t looking (“I think they wanted it more” “Uhhh, they went harder?” “Sorry, I hit the blunt too hard”), EACH ROUND is judged by itself. The winner will have, for sure, won the most rounds in the battle. It’s not an actual fist fight (sorry Clint).
2v2 All Styles: Lottery Battle ($200 Cash Prize)
WINNERS: Alan and Figment
-It’s like a blind date, but with dancing. You’ll love it. Come single, leave happy. EDIT: Many questions about the battle, so here’s the breakdown: we will convert your name into Godel numbers and punch it into a random number generator (RNG). The convergence of Godel numbers in the RNG will result in an output function, which we will represent with English alphabets, resulting in your name + somebody else’s name. EDIT2: Okay, it seems there has been more confusion. We will pair you up with a random dancer. It can be your mother, Giao’s dog, Adan Konhurst (that handsome devil), Hitler, etc. You have to vibe with your partner’s style for the remainder of the event, until you both take it to the finals and win (or lose in the prelims).
Contests for free gear/shirts/hugs/braggin’ rights:
-Beat-killer: Every dancer gets the same beat. Guy/gal who kills the beat the hardest wins.
-Hardest move: Any single move. Hardest wins.
-Most unique move: Most original short set gets the shirt/hugs/naked women.
-Bite contest: biggest, most exact, most shameless bite wins (or loses, depending on your perspective).

TYPHOON HAIYAN RIPS THROUGH CENTRAL PHILIPPINES
Typhoon Haiyan is a Category 5 storm, the strongest typhoon of 2013 and said to be the “most powerful ever” to make landfall (with winds near 195-200 mph). Perspective: Superstorm Sandy was at 95mph when it hit New Jersey; Hurricane Katrina at 129mph when it hit land.
- Pre-emptive evacuations affect more than 161,000 families or more than 790,000 people in 37 provinces
- Typhoon Haiyan as seen from space
- Haiyan makes 6 landfalls - it affected an island chain in the central Philippines, making landfall in six islands. It gained wind power as it traversed through waters in between.
- Haiyan traverses areas affected by magnitude 7.1 earthquake - The earthquake left more than 200 dead dead on October 16; 1000 injured; 350,000 displaced. The survivors have been living in tents and evacuation areas. It passed through Leyte, Samar, Cebu (2.5 million residents), among others. All with densely populated cities, some of which are the poorest provinces in the country.
- 100 people killed in Tacloban — first estimate of casualties in the city reported today, November 9. Because the communication lines are down, the news centers have yet to take stock of the full extent of the damage. But the numbers are still expected to rise. The devastation was described as if a tsunami had wracked through it.
- 2:03PM 11/9: An estimated 4 million people have been affected by the typhoon
- 4:20PM 11/9: 90% of Baco Town in Oriental Mindoro flooded
- 4:55 PM 11/9: Bodies still scattered in Leyte as Visayas in shock
- 5:19PM 11/9: Negros Occidental under a state of calamity
- 7:34PM 11/9: Local officials expect the number of bodies found in Tacloban to reach 500
- eta: 7:45PM 11/9: Iloilo and Palawan declare state of calamity
- eta: 8:04PM 11/9: Update: 134 reported dead
- eta: 8:30PM 11/9: Thousands homeless in Ormoc, Leyte
- eta3: 10PM 11/9: Red Cross estimates 1,200 casualties
- eta3: 3AM 11/10: Aerial photo of Bantayan Island after Haiyan
- eta3: 3:23AM 11/10: At least 200 believed dead in Eastern Samar
The victims need all the help they can get. Cities have been leveled, buildings made of concrete were destroyed by strong winds and storm surges. Communications have yet to be reestablished in most of the areas affected by the typhoon. The full picture left behind by Haiyan has yet to be established yet the devastation reported on television is already extensive. The government is bracing for large-scale relief operations. Virtually 1/3 of the country has been ravaged by this natural disaster. And we need help.
