first_img 4 Isn’t it time we got some love advice from a couple living the example of some good lovin’?  Well, Kindred gave us a 4th chance to get to know love in that fantasy way (it’s there 4th studio album), but more importantly, in that practical way. Aja and Fatin Danzler, married and parents of 6 children, continue to not only sing about love, but to be true examples that love (and hard work as Aja would say) can indeed conquer all! 6 Oh you didn’t know that The Roots released two albums this year?  Well that’s what I’m here for! Usually when a project is “produced” by The Roots, it really means that it has been touched by the combination of band leader Questlove and keyboardist / Grammy Award winning producer / Creative Ambassador James Poyser.  This is The Roots’ second collaboration album with a music legend (the first Al Green).  For the last decade, Ms. Betty has been using her talents for teaching. She has been the vocal coach on American Idol for quite some time now, along with some notable private sessions for voices like Joss Stone and Jennifer Lopez, but this is her time to shine! 1 Creative Ambassador Nikki Jean may not be a Philly native, but I’m sure she’ll agree that her years spent in the Philadelphia music scene definitely helped mold her as a singer/songwriter.  Pennies In A Jar is Nikki’s debut CD, and it sets her apart from anyone else on this list with her mixture of soul, pop and folk. So, it’s almost the end of the year. Before you bust your brain open trying to think of the perfect gift for your loved one, why not give the gift that keeps on giving?  What am I talking about, you ask?  How about one or more of the 10 Best Philly/A-Philly-Ated Albums of the Year? And my list has something for everyone! (In no specific order) And, Questlove’s pick for Philly Album of the Year: Drum roll please… 9 Meek Mills. All this talk and not even a debut studio album yet!  However, he has managed to catch the ear of TI and Rick Ross. Oh and did I mention his debut mix cd (narrated and mixed by Philly’s own DJ Drama) has already sold 300,000 copies digitally? Meek is making the most out of what some would think is his last chance of chasing his dreams. It feels like its just the beginning. 2 Eric Roberson. Another “A-Philly-Ated” singer/songwriter who has been in the game for some time now. This New Jersey native’s initial claim to fame as a songwriter can be heard on some of your favorite albums from 112, MusiqSoulchild, Carl Thomas, Dwele and more, but his catalog of at least 7 studio albums includes a mix of the most beautiful ballads and blends of house and soul music. If you don’t believe me (or if you really do) check him out for yourself. Please! 7 Common has put his work in as an “A-Philly-ate”.  He has done countless records and shows with The Roots, as well as appearing with Jill Scott and Marsha Ambrosius on other projects.   He is truly an artist we can depend on for a quality album, and one of our favorite reflections of the evolution of hip hop. Just when we think that we’ve heard our favorite Common album, he puts another in the ring. Nikki Jean – Pennies In A Jar 8 Calling yourself “The Greatest Rapper Never” takes a certain type of ego/candidness that only Dice Raw can exude.  Why do I say that?  Well, Dice has quietly be refining his MC skills since he was scooped up by The Roots at the age of 16.  Unlike most, he didn’t run when his solo debut (Reclaiming The Dead, released in 2000) didn’t meet sales expectations. He wrote instead! For the last few years, Dice has been at the helm of most of The Roots projects, as well as writing and conceptualizing songs for Jill Scott, John Legend, Young Jeezey and more.  Is he really just that good?  Listen for yourself! 3 Are we sure Marsha is from London?  Because her soul is pure Philly!  This Creative Ambassador had one of the most anticipated solo releases since Lauryn Hill, and she didn’t disappoint! From her honest and blatant ballad “I Hope She Cheats On You With A Basketball Player” to her beautiful ballad that turned into a poignant video “Far Away,” she somehow manages to put our love stories into the words we couldn’t find. Now that’s talent! 5 What do I need to say about The Roots album besides, “You don’t have it yet?  What’s wrong with you?” The Roots continue to move us with there 11th studio album.  I believe that entitles them to the title of the most releases from any hip hop group (don’t hold me to it, unless its right). I consider them hip hop’s fine wine, they just get better with age.  10 Is it just me, or is Jill Scott always in my head? Every time she puts a new album out, it feels like at least half of the songs are a reflection of my life or how I feel. Get out of my head, Jill! Wait. Actually, I take that back, because no one can sing what I feel, like Jill. And, this album doesn’t disappoint. As we evolve, so does Jill. Jill gives us the true story of a real woman, and there is so much more to tell!  This album is perfection. ‘Nuff said!last_img read more

first_imgThe Canadian Press MONCTON, N.B. — A New Brunswick woman injured in a car crash is headed to court this week to argue her insurance company should cover the cost of her hip surgery in a private clinic because she faces a four-year wait in the public system.One of her lawyers says it’s a case that could have implications for health care across the country.Mike Murphy, a senior partner with Forte Law in Moncton, N.B., says his young client was injured in a collision three years ago, but her hip injury wasn’t diagnosed until six months ago.Murphy says her insurance company won’t cover the $28,000 it would cost to have surgery in a private clinic in Nova Scotia because the operation — to repair a labral tear — should be covered by medicare.However, Murphy says the four-year wait effectively means she is being denied treatment.The lawyer says the woman’s hip is expected to deteriorate over the next four years, causing undue suffering and increasing the likelihood she will need a hip replacement.“We’re saying that medicare doesn’t cover this because availability is four years away,” Murphy said in an interview. “That’s just not coverage.”last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram This year the Julian and Gregorian calendars align with Orthodox Easter and that of western Christians with Easter falling on Sunday 16 April.On Easter Saturday, thousands of faithful around the world will congregate at their local churches to collect the Eternal Flame that is blessed and passed around the congregation. Christos Anesti (Christ has risen) and Alithos Anesti (Truly, he is risen) will be said from one parishioner to another to confirm the resurrection of Jesus, and we remember his sacrifice in being crucified and resurrecting for the salvation of all humanity.Families will carry the flame home where they will gather with those closest to them to break the Lenten fast and as is the tradition, eat magiritsa and crack their red eggs symbolising eternal life.Finally, a celebratory feast will follow on Easter Sunday when people come together with those they hold dear. Whether one identifies as religious or not, these traditions, which date back thousands of years, serve as a time of reflection – and a welcome one at that – as the world continues to experience instability, war, and famine, and on a personal level, our own challenges; Easter brings with it hope and a chance to start anew.

The sandbox building game is releasing across all regions as of today for $19.99, which is a pittance for the amount of time you can spend with the game creating your own crazy structures and getting into silly shenanigans.It was previously announced in October that the game would be making its debut on the Apple TV, but now it’s finally available. It will come with the complete version of the game, including seven different pieces of downloadable content, such as the City Folk, Town Folk, and Holiday 2015 releases that were previously available that include a staggering amount of skins and other augments.They’ll be up for grabs for a limited time, according to Apple, so you’ll want to go ahead and get them since there’s no reason not to. There’s a whole wide world of additional skins out there too, so chances are if you’ve got a favorite character or theme or something to that effect you can find it out there.Other than being all the way up to date with the game’s Ender Update that just rolled out, there’s nothing significantly different about this version of the game beyond the fact that it’s compatible with the Apple TV. But if you’re all about that streaming life there’s plenty you’ll be able to do while sitting on your couch and taking it all in from the comfort of your living room.Minecraft is still all the rage, of course, so you’ll be part of the cool crowd finally for a twenty.

first_imgA woman escaped injury after a cooking fire damaged the kitchen of a Countryside Woods neighborhood house. The Vancouver Fire Department was called to 15705 N.E. 10th St. at 8:35 p.m. Sunday. Firefighters quickly doused the blaze, which ended up causing an estimated $20,000 in smoke and fire damage to the kitchen, according to Vancouver Fire Marshal Heidi Scarpelli.The woman, who was deep-frying Twinkies, left the stove unattended, Scarpelli said. When she noticed the fire, Scarpelli said, she first called her boyfriend before calling 911. “When a person notices that they have a problem, it’s very important to call 911 right away, then try to extinguish the fire,” Scarpelli said. She added that cooking fires are also the leading cause of fires in Vancouver. “It’s just imperative that when people are using the stove, they’re there, that it’s an active process,” she said.last_img read more

first_img Share Bob DaemmrichGov. Greg Abbott displays SB339 as Rep. John Zerwas, Rep. Stephanie Klick and Sen. Kevin Eltife watch. The bill would allow limited use of medical marijuana oil that will control seizures in epileptic children.In 2015, Gov. Greg Abbott signed the first bill allowing any growing or sale of marijuana in Texas. The Texas Compassionate Use Act legalized the selling of a specific kind of cannabis oil derived from marijuana plants for a very small group of customers: epilepsy patients whose symptoms have not responded to federally approved medication.Two years later, Texans still can’t legally buy cannabis oil, but a handful of companies believe they are weeks away from receiving the official go-ahead to become the state’s first sellers.But even if those approvals go through, it’ll still be some time before any Texans will be able to buy what they’re selling.The three eligible dispensaries — Surterra Texas, Cansortium Texas and Compassionate Cultivation — are waiting on the final stamp of approval from the Texas Department of Public Safety to begin growing and distributing marijuana. The agency has until Sept. 1 to do so under the 2015 law.That could put cannabis oil on the market by January, two and a half years after Abbott signed a law legalizing it, according to some potential sellers.“Let’s say that we get our final license on Sept. 1. Only after that point will we be able to start growing marijuana,” said Morris Denton, the CEO for Compassionate Cultivation, which is planning a dispensary in the Austin area. “Once we start growing, it’s going to take about four months before we’re ready to dispense medicine because of the extraction and testing process the plant has to go through after it’s been harvested.”Dispensaries like Compassionate Cultivation will only be able to sell to a small percentage of Texans under the narrow 2015 law, which allows for the sale of oils with low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive element in marijuana, and high levels of cannabidiol (CBD), a non-euphoric component known to treat epilepsy and other chronic medical conditions. Supporters have praised the Texas law as a historic shift in the state’s policy related to marijuana. But some critics have argued that the THC and CBD levels Texas has legalized are still too low to help many epilepsy patients and provides no help for others who could be helped by medical marijuana in other forms.“Texas took a very narrow, specific approach focused on epilepsy patients only — which is indicative of the state,” said Adam Sharon, the communications director for Cansortium Texas, which is planning a dispensary in Fayette County between Houston and Austin. (The third dispensary, Surterra Texas, did not respond to a request for comment.)Twenty-nine states, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico now allow for comprehensive public medical marijuana and cannabis programs, according to the National Council of State Legislatures. Texas is one of 17 states to pass a law allowing for the use of “low THC, high CBD” products for medical reasons in limited situations. “We were very disappointed in how unreasonably restrictive the Compassionate Use Act was written,” said Heather Fazio, a spokesperson for Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy. “We’re grateful it was intended for some people to have access to some type of cannabis, but science shows [medical marijuana] can help countless Texans suffering from PTSD, multiple sclerosis and severe pain.”Texas began accepting applications for dispensing organizations in March 2017. Two months later, DPS announced it had selected three applicants out of the 43 that applied to receive preliminary licenses as dispensing organizations. Denton said his business is waiting to complete a “fairly substantial inspection report” from the DPS before his dispensary will get the approval needed to begin growing and cultivating marijuana. The report is an 18-page document requiring each dispensary to verify the facility’s lease and permits from local fire marshals, among other things, he said.“The inspections will confirm the applicant’s’ compliance with the safety, security, cultivation and processing requirements,” a spokesperson for the DPS wrote in an emailed statement to the Tribune.The House sponsor of the Compassionate Use Act, state Rep. Stephanie Klick, R-Fort Worth, said in an interview in the Capitol Wednesday that she expected the first dispensaries would be “up and running” by Sept. 1 and that she’s visited with “a few of the vendors.” When asked why the dispensaries have not received final approval from the state, Klick said she hadn’t heard about that.Advocates, however, said they believe the state’s slow pace for the past two years reflects a larger issue.“These folks [at DPS] haven’t known anything other than putting people in jail for cannabis, and now, all of sudden, they have to learn about this plant, establish best practices and execute the rollout,” Fazio said. “That’s a lot to do in a little more than two years.”Emmanuel Garza moved his family last year from Sullivan City, Texas near the border to Colorado, where recreational marijuana is legal, in order to be able to purchase CBD oil and other medical products derived from marijuana to treat his daughter’s seizures. He said he pays nearly $200 for a 100-milliliter bottle of CBD oil, which he said lasts almost a year since she takes such a small dosage.Denton said there remain too many variables to know how much his Texas dispensary will charge eligible patients for cannabis oil.“You may have one doctor that prescribes a certain dosing and then another that prescribes a different dosing,” Denton said. “[The price] will pivot off of what a price per gram of the CBD oil will be and then how that gets delivered through different products.”last_img read more

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: D.M South African Tourism brought their newest campaign,’ Leave Ordinary Behind’, to life yesterday, inviting the national rugby team, The Springboks, to rub shoulders with the travel industry whilst being entertained by some of the country’s best artists, including the Grammy award winning, Soweto Gospel Choir.The South African Springboks arrived in Sydney ahead of their clash against the Wallabies tomorrow, but players were in fine form relaying anecdotes about what they loved best about their country, including a variety of activities ranging from surfing to shooting. It is this wide array of adventurous activities that has prompted South African Tourism to launch a definitive “Adventurous Guide” which Country Manager AU/NZ, Lalie Ngozi, saying it is expected the travel industry will offer the guide to clients to save researching activities in the regions they have booked to visit. “It is a country so dramatic and exciting, the message of leaving the ordinary behind shows how South Africa is different,” Ms Ngozi said at last night’s campaign launch. “We want to entice tourists the world over to book South Africa for their next holiday, immerse themselves in the sights, sounds and everything South Africa has to offer.” Ms Ngozi said throughout the decade, the South African Tourism brand has evolved to allow changes to the ways in which the country is promoted globally, effectively leading to the new campaign. “A lot has been achieved by our brand, but the World Cup gave us extra mileage.  We want people to experience it for themselves … we’re not all about the animals; there’s a lot of other activities.  We want you to add South Africa to your bucket list” she said.Ms Ngozi said the country offered some unique activities including crocodile and shark diving in cages, which Springboks Captain, John Smit quipped how their team building exercise did not involve any cages.Click here to view photos Springboks Captain John Smit and South African Tourism Laile Ngozilast_img read more

first_img Demand Home Prices Home Sales Redfin 2014-03-04 Tory Barringer in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News March 4, 2014 446 Views Sharecenter_img Overall market speed slowed once more in January in a sign that home shoppers are becoming more discriminating in their selections.The median days on market for homes sold in 20 metros tracked by Redfin rose to 41 in January, the company reported—five days longer than in December.At the same time, however, the share of listings under contract within two weeks jumped to a quarter, with 15 percent going under contract within only seven days.“That uptick indicates that determined buyers are still keen to quickly make offers on the most coveted listings,” said Redfin researcher Troy Martin. “But potential homebuyers have grown pickier when it comes to listings that don’t meet as many of their expectations, or don’t meet them at the right price, leading to a slower market pace.”Redfin agent Eric Tan elaborated: “In 2013, listings were flying off the shelves. We’d have 150 people show up, and get 20 to 30 offers after just one open house. This year, we’re still seeing a lot of people touring, but if the home isn’t priced right, it won’t sell quickly. But the market is still fast for homes that are listed at a price that buyers can stomach.”The fastest market in January was San Jose, which also happened to be the only metro where the median days on market decreased from December (down two days to 16). The California city was also the fastest in terms of the share of listings under contract by the 14-day mark: 56.9 percent.Despite the monthly acceleration, San Jose still made the list of western markets that saw sales speeds slow down compared to last year. Other locations, including San Diego, Los Angeles, Ventura, Riverside, Sacramento, and Phoenix, experienced slowdowns of eight days or more compared to January 2013.As is often the case, markets that sat near the bottom last year saw the most significant annual gains—including Philadelphia and Boston, where the median days on market were down by five and nine, respectively.Still, both cities remain the two slowest. Homes spent a median 77 days on market before going under contract in Philadelphia, while they were listed in Boston for 55 days. Market Slows as Buyers Become Pickierlast_img read more

first_img PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The auctioneer selling the house where Rosa Parks sought refuge after fleeing the South amid death threats said after the auction on Thursday there are buyers interested, but it will take a few days to work out the details.The house was included in an auction by Guernsey’s in New York as part of a larger sale of African-American cultural and historic items. It was listed with a minimum bid of $1 million, with a presale estimate of $1 million to $3 million.It didn’t sell during the auction, but Arlan Ettinger, of Guernsey’s, said he was approached after the auction by a buyer who had trouble entering a bid online. He did not release the buyer’s identity.Among the other items of interest that sold was Alex Haley’s manuscript of “The Autobiography of Malcolm X,” including handwritten notes by Malcolm X and Haley, which sold to New York’s Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Ettinger said. It was sold after the auction, and he did not immediately release the price.Parks moved to Detroit in 1957, two years after refusing to give up her seat on a bus to a white passenger in Montgomery, Alabama. She stayed for a time in her brother’s tiny, wood-framed home with 17 other relatives, according to family members.The house eventually was abandoned and ended up on a demolition list before Parks’ niece, Rhea McCauley, bought it for $500 and donated it to American artist Ryan Mendoza in an attempt to preserve her aunt’s legacy. Mendoza took it apart and shipped it to Germany and reassembled it in his yard in Berlin, turning it into a work of art that became a destination for people curious about Parks.Mendoza brought the house back to the U.S. earlier this year and displayed it in Rhode Island as he searched for a permanent place to reassemble the fragile structure for the final time. It is now packed in shipping containers awaiting its new home.He has said he hopes it will be displayed so the public can see it. The auction house has said the proceeds of the sale will be split between Mendoza and Parks’ family.Mendoza, who was in Berlin for the auction, followed the sale online and initially thought it had failed to sell after bidding did not reach the minimum of $1 million.“It’s really exciting,” Mendoza said. “My god. I thought it was a total failure for a minute there. I had shriveled up into a little ball. I thought I had failed America and American history, and instead it looks like we’re going to have a happy ending.” by Michelle R.
