luciano1256.jpgIt seems as if Luciano’s troubles will not be ending any time soon. The singer was charged with harbouring a criminal yesterday after his lawyer Delano Franklyn insisted that the police either charge his client or let him go.

The singer should now be out on station bail.

The 'Messenger' troubles started on last Wednesday when policemen acting on information went to his home on Westminister Crescent.

The gunman launched an attack on the policemen at about 5:00 am, the battled lasted for three hours and when the smoke cleared three policemen were injured and the gunman dead.

rjr_94fm.gifRadio Jamaica Limited has ceased operation of its RJR AM service on Monday.
As a result of this Nationwide radio which was heard on the AM band, will no longer be available on that frequency.
According to a story posted on RJR’s website, Managing Director of the RJR Communications Group, Gary Allen explains that the decision was made due to the ongoing lack of viability in operating the service.

"General radio output of RJR will not be affected by this move as the AM service was leased to Nationwide News Network. We have assessed the arrangements and we have assessed the operations of the network and it is no longer viable for us to continue with it," said Mr. Allen.

Nationwide News Network has been broadcasting on RJR's AM service for the past two years.

The service was terminated at 5:05 Monday afternoon

Kirk Headley reportedly found dead

Kirk Headley.jpg31-year-old International model Kirk Headley was reportedly found dead at the upscale Paddington Terrace residence of his parents in Kingston, Jamaica. According to a report in the The Jamaica Observer Kirk’s body was found hanging outside the house early Thursday morning and the police suspect suicide.

The tragic discovery was made shortly after Headley had returned home from the Norman Manley airport where he had dropped off his parents to catch an early flight to Mexico via Miami. Kirk’s parents, Lindy and Carmen Headley are now on their way back to Jamaica after learning of the horrible loss.

Kirk is the grandson of the celebrated former West Indies cricketer George Headley. Kirk is a graduate of University of Technology and he shot to international prominence in the mid 1990s when he was selected by the then fashion editor of Vibe Magazine Emile Wilbeken to do a multi page swim wear spread in the glossy monthly.

The shoot was considered a success and this opened up fashion opportunities for Kirk that included a residential stint in South Africa.

Last year, Kirk was featured in the music video The Love That a Woman Should Give to a Man shot for VP Records recording artist Althea Hewitt. The song is a Phyllis Dillon classic. Kirk was also featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show in the late 1990s, having been voted first runner up in the Sexiest Man In the Caribbean contest.

It appeared Kirk Headley suffered from a bipolar condition, and Jamaican police sources say he was depressed and receiving treatment for his illness.





Sample6.jpgHonestly, mi really amazed at how tings change, memba one time man and woman woulda get dem groove on di dancefloor, now if you notice di trend change real bad. A pure man a scramble fi di videolight if it mean sey dem all a haffi get di woman dem outa di way.

Fi real back inna di going to dances it was like a whole activity by itself, you woulda si hustlers, di jerk man, di peanut vendor, soup man you get di drift, the hottie hottie girl dem whey dress nuh puss boot and of course do beggar dem whey waan yuh “let off a ting”.

But it come een like some a di dancers dem teck ova all a di role dem whey dese people used to play. From deejays, to MC, host, promoters, hustlers, beggers, sellers you name it…and di wuss ting whey wi observe is dat di number one begger in dancehall a di make dancer dem.

In a homophobic country like Jamaica, me know people always go club fi see go-go dancers, so wid dem man yah a dance like dem a woman, it would be safe to say dat most of these dancers are male go-go(s).
Dem dancers yah a get out a hand, dem a fight wid each other fi video light, a war wid video man cause dem nah video dem and once di video go pon di woman dem, dem leave the venue.

As a promoter, me really a wonder if dem dancer yah no get thursty after all dem dancing. Is either dem pocket empty or them mean to themself. Me say di dancers rather by a (1) Magnum and (1) Redbull, share it wid bout 30 men or beg people a drink out a dem liquor and dats it fi di night.
Member dem come in a di dance dem free, nah buy not even a wata, so how dem expect dancehall fi survive?

Di dancers really a tek dancehall fi a circus, dem cum a di dance, sweat up demself, wah bounce people and step-up pon people shoes, not even say sorry and expect you fi smile.

Some a dem dance group need fi re-invent themself and come back wid a few females in the group. A couple-up time now.

Bwoy mi nuh waan spend di whole time bash dem still but a really hope we can get back di nice nice nice vibes whey wi did use to from di dancehall. A who did sing she “Mi waan back we wata pumpie, we cool and deadly, fi go dance wid we ladies…” Mi nuh haffi sey nutten more.

Did Rap Kill The Black Male Singer?

Webmin
5 Comments

By Pearl Jr.
rapmusic.gifHow many of you know who the best selling Black male singer in the world for 2008 was? I bet you'll never get this right, without a few clues. Well, he's 50 years old, considered washed up and too controversial to sell, plus the majority of his songs are more than 25 years old. It's Michael Jackson, who sold more than Usher, Chris Brown, Ne-yo, John Legend, and Seal. The King of Pop sold nearly as many records worldwide as the #1 best-selling artist in the US regardless of race, Lil Wayne, whose genre of hip hop lost nearly 19.8 percent in sales from the previous year. Michael Jackson's song catalog sold 2.9 million copies with Thriller 25 topping over 2.3 million by itself, plus Michael didn't even promote it and performed nowhere! Shocking isn't it! (Lil Wayne sold nearly 3 million)

Before the 1990's, it seemed one could find a million-selling Black male recording artist on other every corner, and, at least, 20 in every Black church. Today, it's becoming more and more difficult to ignore the facts that Black men are headed to the bottom of, yet, another statistical chart.

Music, the savior of the Black race, made bearable the horrors of slavery, soothed during Jim Crow racism, and bonded in segregation. This type of Black love and togetherness ushered in the perfectly pitched passion of singers like Smokey Robinson singing countertenor (a male soprano), Michael Jackson a solid tenor, David Ruffin a baritone, and Barry White, the maestro, bass singer. Even now writing this article, name after name of remarkable Black male singers come to mind like Nat King Cole, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Jackie Wilson, Marvin Gaye, Donnie Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Ronald Isley, Al Green, Teddy Pendergrass, Luther Vandross, Jeffrey Osborne, and singing groups like The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Spinners, Stylistics, Chi-lights, Jackson 5, Earth Wind and Fire, The Moments, The Manhattans, New Edition, and Boys II Men. The list goes on and on. But today, where are the Black male singers that made Black women buy every Right On Magazine and scream with excited hysteria whenever their favorite artists appeared?

In today's world of rap music, the last solid genre created in the Black community, seemed to have seduced too many Black men wishing for their spot on the top of music entertainment fame, to speak rhythmic poetry instead of singing the melodies of love and longing.

The irony is that while the loving lyrics of Motown dominated the Black airways for decades, Black love was in bloom, and so was the growth of the music industry. Now too many Black men in the game of hip hop slop are volunteering to label Black women bitches and hos, promote criminality, excessive spending (bling), and speak of love making as purely a one night stand have contributed to the widespread decline of Black love and progress. It's no coincidence that Black love is down at the same time Black music is at its lowest levels ethically and well as financially. This decline has little to do with the recession because these declines started to manifest 6 years ago, and ringtones along with 99 cent downloads just ain't paying the bills.

I am fulfilled--mind, body, and spirit.
Blimp.jpgI have probably made some, if not all, of these statements in the past: "Someday I will take a class just for the fun of it. One day I will go on a road trip, discovering my way along the way. Maybe tomorrow I'll take time to meet my new neighbor. I'm too busy now, but in the future I will be sure to make more time for family and friends."
Today I put all limiting thoughts of the past where they belong: in the past. I know that I can do more now. I understand that this is a prompting from the Christ of my being to live my life more fully. This is the perfect day to have fun, discover more beauty in nature, connect with neighbors, and spend quality time with my family and friends.
Christ within me is the master life coach, guiding me to and through the experiences that fulfill me in mind, body, and spirit.
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."--Hebrews 13:8

T.I. getting ready to serve is jail sentence
ti6.jpgAccording to international gossip website MediaTakeOut.com today is time to pay the piper. TI will be sentenced today and he's expected to do a little less than a year in prison. Here's how the Atlanta-Journal Constitution is putting it:

* According to the plea agreement, T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., will be sentenced to one year and a day.


* The extra day means T.I. can carve 15 percent off of his sentence with good behavior. Under U.S. Bureau of Prison rules, inmates can earn such credit only if they are sentenced to longer than a year in prison.


* T.I. should serve an estimated 298 days -- or a little less than 10 months. He is expected to get credit for the two weeks he sat in jail after his arrest and before posting a $3 million bond.

Efforts are being made by the police force to nab the other two men who are suspected of chasing and shooting Johnson to death.

guidance_yardflex.jpgI am confident as I listen to and act upon divine guidance.
Certain familiar sounds alert me to what I'm to do next: The buzz of an alarm announces that it's time to begin my day. The sound of my ringtone signals me to answer an incoming call. I may receive instructions from a supervisor, teacher, or mentor. I am always open to the guidance that comes to me seemingly out of the blue.
Yet it is in the silence that I receive the most profound guidance. I rest quietly in a place that is peaceful and comfortable. I breathe, relax, and become attuned to the many types of direction heard in my life.
My faith in divine guidance expands and enhances my receptivity to it. Solutions and answers become crystal clear. With this time in reflective prayer, I build discernment and confidence. I am blessed as I move with readiness to positive action.
"And he said, 'Let anyone with ears to hear listen!' "--Mark 4:9

luciano_gunman_killed_house.jpgYardflex takes a closer look at the gunman that engaged the police in a shootout at cultural singer Luciano’s house.

• His aliases are ‘Shooty shooty’ and ‘Conqueror’
• He was a deadly fugitive on the run for two years...this according to the police
• He was most wanted for a series of gun-related crimes including murder, shooting with intent and theft of a policeman’s firearm
• According to the police he brutally slaughtered 65-year-old Gloria McLean at an open lot on Shortwoord Road, January 15 after she chided him for his uncouth behaviour towards a child.
• Also engaged the police in a shootout at Central Village February last year

Now with a rap sheet like that the only thing we want to know and we guess it will be some time before we find out...if ever, what the hell was he doing at Luciano’s residence...and what was the singer doing having him hanging around?

RJR_Comm_Group.JPG32 employees of the RJR Communications group received their pink slips yesterday – some through voluntary early retirement.

This is the latest move as more and more companies are feeling the pinch from the recession that is hitting the country real hard.
Among those that were let go are Michael Sharpe, Simon Crosskill, who is the group head of sports.

According to a report carried in the Jamaica Observer the media group said the separation agreement was reached after consultation with all stakeholders and was in response to the continued decline in the global advertising activity and increased costs.

“The company says it is moving the group to a model of greater out-sourcing of services aimed at reducing the size of its permanent structure as well as its recurring expenses,” the release said.

not beyonce and jay z wedding picture[3].jpgWell a lot of people were speculating on how long this Hollywood romance would last, would it survive the fickle world of entertainment or would the pressure of their demanding lives tell on them? That’s the big question regarding Beyonce and Jay-Z’s marriage.

Well according to gossip web site Mediatakeout.com, it could very well be falling apart at the seams.

The site claims that rumours are already surfacing of trouble in Jay-Z and Beyonce’s marriage. The site reported a while back that they were already spending nights apart even when they were both in New York. Now there’s fresh rumour that they’re spending night apart even when they’re in the same club!

According to the site one of their readers ran into the couple at the 40/40 Club in New York and the newlyweds were apart for the entire night! The snitch further reported that Beyonce seemed angry the entire night and didn’t socialize with anyone.

Wow...we hope these are just rumours...and these two will find a way to patch up their differences.

DW_key.jpgI experience absolute peace and reassurance in God's presence.
When it seemed as though something was missing in my life, I may have made a decision that I now wish I could cancel. Perhaps I was trying to fill an emptiness within me with something outside of me, and now I know that doesn't work.

What I had been searching for, what I had needed, what I had yearned for was with me from the very beginning. In God, I found myself. In God, I found my way.

Each day as I place my trust in God, I surrender any past or present hurt. Knowing I am always in God's loving presence, I experience absolute peace and reassurance. I am in God, and God is in me.
Centering myself in the indwelling presence of God, I live my life as the unique expression of God that I am. I am at peace, reassured, and fulfilled.

Oh for some women to adorn themselves properly!

By Rootzgirl
Rasta-Girl-Posters.jpgThe other day I was driving down a certain street in downtown Kingston and I couldn’t help groaning inside. In that short journey I must have passed at least six women on the roadside dressed in torn clothes, their big bellies protruding, some looking as if they had not taken a shower from the day before and I couldn’t help but wonder if these women lived with their partners.

Of course I came to the conclusion that they didn’t live with any man, for the simple reason that no man was going to allow his woman to walk through the door looking so unkempt and as my grandmother would say “slackey tidy”.

Where is the pride that would see them taking a good shower, putting on some decent clothes and coming out on the road looking like the ladies they are supposed to be.

It is truly a turnoff for me to drive on the street and see these women parading in all kinds of careless manner…and the worst thing is that they think it is OK to behave like that.

The one instant where a friend of mine told off one and suggested she tried to put herself together must better than that, she was greeted with a string of expletives and told to mind her own business…in fact Miss Ting went as far as suggested that if my friend didn’t watch her mouth then she might get a bullet for it.

So me, I just look, groan within myself and let things lie. If women want to go around like that, then let them…the big disappointment is that there are some careless men around the place who will still hunt them and so why not, they will not see anything wrong with it.





T-Pain sued for US$5M over failed GCC appearance

No Comments

t-pain-aka-faheen-najm-1.jpgAmerican hip-hop star T-Pain is being sued Hits and Jams (H&J for his non appearance at a show in Guyana.

According to a story carried in the Guyana Chronicle the company filed an action on Monday, in the 17th Judicial Circuit Court, Broward County, Florida, United States (U.S.), against hip hop superstar T-Pain and Company.

The US$5M claim is for breach of a written contract, libel, defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

A release from the plaintiff said T-Pain was scheduled to perform at Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC) February 23 last, but cancelled the appearance after what his camp described as “credible kidnapping and death threats” to the singer’s life.

H&J said, despite several requests, the American superstar and his management team refused to provide the source of the alleged threats to the promoters and their attorney, law enforcement, the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and the U.S. Consulate in Guyana, to facilitate a probe.

H&J said the R&B artiste and his team merely informed them and their attorney that the threats came from “a credible source that T-Pain’s camp trusted” and “who they have been dealing with in Guyana” and that “T-Pain has dealt with the source in the past.”

After T-Pain cancelled the Guyana show, several false and incorrect reports in the international media attributed the cancellation of T-Pain’s appearance in Georgetown, to the promoters, Hits and Jams Entertainment.

“The press releases also falsely attributed personal knowledge of the alleged telephone and e-mail threats to the promoters. The promoters do not possess any personal knowledge of the alleged threat or the credibility of the alleged threats,” H&J said.

The statement said, according to the first clause of the action, for breach of contract, obtained from the local promoters, they are seeking an award of general and special damages in the above quoted amount, which is in excess of the jurisdictional limits of the Circuit Court, attorneys and Court fees, pre-judgement interest and such other relief the Court deems just and proper, against the defendants.

It added that the plaintiffs, respectfully, reserve the right to seek and assert a claim of punitive damages pursuant to the requirements of Florida Statute 768.72.

Three other causes of action, filed against the defendant, are for libel, defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress, each seeking US$15,000 awards.

solange-knowles-wedding-b.jpgWow, it would seem that women are the target for these men who really don’t know how to treat a lady. According to gossip web site mediatakeout.com Solange, sister of Beyonce was punched in the face at a concert by a patron who appeared to be drunk.

A reader which reported the incident to the web site said at the concert which she attended in Austin on Saturday a fan punched Solange in the face.

Below is the reader’s comment to the site.

“I just wanted to say that Solange got punched in the face. The dumb [EXPLETIVE] though that it would be cute for her to jump into the [crowd] while singing. Some guy was drunk and put up his fist when Solange jumped and hit her right in the chin. He acted like it was an accident, but I saw [him] afterwards and he was laughing about it with his friends.
I know it hurt [Solange], but she kept the show moving. When she climbed back up she said something like, ‘Some guy punched my in the lip’ but then she just danced and sang like everything was cool.


All yardflex has to say is shame on you for bragging about something like that.

Who colt the game? Marley magic tested

Marley magic.jpgEven as widow of the late Bob Marley, Rita, is defending the deal with Canadian company Hilco, which has a mission to boost the Marley legend through a worldwide marketing blitz, the reggae icon’s oldest son, Ziggy is having reservations.

The deal will see Hilco tracking illegal use of the Marley image and name. But the company's main thrust is overseeing the revival of daughter Cedella's Catch A Fire clothing line and launching a series of products, which include a Marley lager.

And, herein lies the conflict. Whereas Bob’s widow sees nothing wrong with the Rastafarian’s image attached to a product such as beer, the singer’s son is not so sure that this is the right branding for his father.

Rita Marley is quoted as saying: "I drink beer, Bob drink beer, his boys drink beer. He never drank alcohol but him love him Guinness and him roots."

The Marley family have endorsed or launched several ventures bearing the singer's name, including a theme park in Florida, Hotel and Spa that opened in The Bahamas in 2007.

Turks' jet-setting premier resigns
Turks and Caicos Islands.jpgPROVIDENCIALES, Turks and Caicos Islands - Premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands, Michael Misick, who had previously promised to resign on March 31, handed in his resignation Monday, a week earlier than expected, following what an investigation called "clear signs" of corruption.

Misick, a jet-setter, said he was stepping down early to give his successor more time to set up a new government - even as Britain plans to dissolve the territory's Cabinet and legislature following the wide-ranging UK corruption inquiry.

"I now announce that I will tender my resignation effective today as premier to allow the new PNP party leader to become premier," Misick said during a brief televised address in the Atlantic islands located between Haiti and the Bahamas.

With two private jets on call and a Hollywood actress wife, the 43-year-old Misick lived like the stars who inhabit the territory where Bruce Willis got married over the weekend.





flexa.jpgThe Canadian court on Monday handed down a 6 1/2-year federal prison sentence to Garfield Sibbles, son of internationally acclaimed reggae singer, Leroy Sibbles, for killing a child under his care.

Justice Bruce Durno sentenced Garfield Anthony Sibblies, 40, of Brampton, but since Sibbles has spent the equivalent of almost six years in custody, he could be released after serving two-thirds of the remaining six months in a provincial jail.

Sibbles pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the March 22, 2006, death of baby Elijah, who was six days short of his first birthday. The court was informed that an autopsy revealed the boy had 38 injuries but could not determine a single cause of death. Elijah had brain injuries consistent with impact and shaking, but insufficient swelling of the brain to kill him.

During the sentencing, Durno said "adults protect vulnerable and defenceless children, not abuse them." He described how the child's death devastated his mother, who buried him on what would have been his first birthday, in the clothes she had bought for him to wear for that day of celebration.

Elijah's mother took Sibblies' last name, but their marriage in 2005 was one of convenience, designed to help her and her son immigrate to Canada, court heard. Sibblies had a girlfriend and didn't intend to remain with the child's mother.

Yesterday, Durno ordered Sibblies to submit his DNA to the national data bank. Upon release, he will be on 36 months of probation, during which time he will be banned from being alone with children under 10.

Sibbles denied beating the child, but admitted he took out his anger and frustration with his own life on the infant that day. He slapped him on the side of his head when he refused to swallow his food and wouldn't sit still. Later, he shook him vigorously when he suddenly fell down and became unconscious.

Last week, Sibblies apologised, telling the court there were no words to explain his remorse. Court heard he told a psychiatrist that he would never forgive himself.

It was pure Marley Magic in Negril

DSC_0545.JPGIt was total magic at Wavz Beach in Negril on Saturday with some sizzling performances from top artistes at the event dubbed Marley Magic.

Junior Kelly gave a commendable performance and had the Negril massive singing along to songs such as If Love So Nice and others.
It was a real poignant moment when Spragga Benz took centrestage and performed a song in tribute to his son Carlisle who was shot and killed under controversial circumstances by the police. His emotionally charged performance brought tears to the eyes of patrons who were all moved by the tribute.

Junior ‘One Blood’ Reid did a tight set performing some of his current hits as well as drawing from his catalogue of Black Uhuru hits. The versatile Reid kept the tourists on a high with some of his hip-hop collaborations.

DJ Capleton threatened to burn the place down with his fire chanting lyrics, it was totally heat in the place after he took the stage. His set was a flag waving, foot stomping energetic session. When he made his exit it was a totally satisfied audience.

Following King Shango’s performance it was time for the only living Wailer, Bunny. Working on tracks he delivered a solid set.

Then it was time for the Marley magic and that came in Bob’s offsprings Stephen and Junior Gong, they worked an excellent set. ‘Magic’ is the only word that can describe their voices harmoniously blending together to produce awesome music.

Their set got even more fun when they called on stage Spragga and Wayne Marshall respectively to perform with them.

When the last strains of the music filled the air at 230 am it was a totally satiated crowd that made their way home.

dogs out.jpgKnowing our oneness, we live in harmony with one another.
A heartwarming story about a female dog that lovingly mothers six orphan kittens makes the national news. Perhaps the underlying message for people is that harmony is always possible because it's not about looking the same or sounding the same. It's about knowing our oneness and letting our unique qualities enhance our relationships.
People from different backgrounds often have different ideas about the same subject. Yet a diversity of ideas can lead to a hybrid idea--one that is a combination of the best of all ideas, a divine plan.
All was created by God and called good. So harmony is the norm when we interact with one another as we were created to act--with love and understanding, with compassion and consideration.
"May the God of steadfastness and encouragement grant you to live in harmony with one another, in accordance with Christ Jesus."--Romans 15:5

sizzla4.jpgReggae/dancehall artiste, Sizzla Kalonji, may have to temporarily relocate to his August Town-based Judgement Yard property as his Richings Ave, Liguanea residence was burnt down on Sunday morning.

“Sizzla did just drive out when the fire start,” a source told YardFlex, adding that the fire started after 9:30 Sunday morning .

Yesterday morning, scores of persons, including players in the music industry — one of whom was said to have just left Sizzla's house — gathered at the Richings Avenue house, owned by Exterminator producer and manager of Sizzla, Phillip ‘Fattis’ Burrell. Burrell, who was also on the scene, was not in any mood to hold discussions with the press.

The cause of the fire, which reportedly caused extensive damage to the upscale property, is still unknown. Loss is estimated at $25 million and it is not known at this time whether or not the property was insured.





Bounty Killa gives this little girl from.JPGDigicel, Jamaica’s Bigger, Better Network in collaboration with one of Jamaica’s top dancehall artistes, Bounty Killa, distributed school supplies to the children in Majesty Gardens, the community where he was born. The day’s event also included a video shoot for two of his current singles in rotation, ‘They Don’t Know’ produced by Shane Brown and ‘Corruption’, produced by Esco and the video was directed by Ras Tingle.

Shelly Ann Curran, Senior Sponsorship Manager at Digicel Jamaica commented; “We were approached by Bounty’s agent, Sharon Burke from Solid Agency about this initiative and we had to jump on board to lend our support to this worthy cause. This idea ties closely with the Y Files campaign which Digicel supports as a Jamaican corporate citizen, sending out messages in partnership with the media condemning violence against our youth. Our nation’s children need guidance and we want to be involved in any positive project that will help to steer them in the right direction and ultimately secure a better future for them. We were happy to have been a part of this initiative with Bounty”.

They see a tree in the distance, and as they get closer, they notice that it's draped with rashers of bacon, smoked bacon, crispy bacon, boiled bacon, grilled bacon, all sorts of bacon.

"Look deh!", says the first badman, "A bacon tree! And we ah dead fe hungry!"

So he starts to run toward the tree. As he gets close, he's gunned down in a hail of bullets.

He's lying wounded on the ground, and his friend shouts, "Wha'appen? Wha'appen? A who?"

The first badman replies, 'Nuh come yah man! A nuh bacon tree, is a ham

She bashed the rap star claiming that he preferred boys to girls.

Asked by a fan if she and Soulja Boy were still an item, Good wrote, "No, me and Soulja Boy aren't together... That ship has sailed. Apparently, he doesn't like chicks."

And, responding to a message from her ex, the actress/model later tweeted, "You're young, rich and over-rated. You think you can have anyone."

light.jpgThe Christ light reveals what is true, and I embrace it.
Without much thought, I might attach a negative label to a situation or person. Such an attitude caused me to come to that negative conclusion before I actually knew the person or had all the facts about a situation.
On second look--when I'm looking for the good--I find good. The situation I was a bit leery of becomes an opportunity for me to learn something of value. Taking the initiative to talk with the person I thought was aloof, I find that she responds with genuine interest.
The transformation is not with the situation or person. It actually happens in my own thoughts and attitude. As I let the wisdom of the inner Christ be my guide, I experience a transformation. The Christ light reveals what is true, and I embrace it.
"He will transform the body of our humiliation that it may be conformed to the body of his glory, by the power that also enables him to make all things subject to himself."--Philippians 3:21

Ninja detained for questioning in murder case

Yardflex_ninjaman.jpg

Controversial deejay Desmond Ballentine more popularly known as Ninjaman and Brother Desmond is now behind bars, as the police continue to gather information linking the deejay to Tuesday’s gun murder of a 20-year-old man in the Marl Road area of Kingston.

Ninja turned up with his attorney, Norma Linton at the Hunt’s Bay Police Station on Thursday, and was detained. He was named by the police as a person of interest in the murder of Ricardo Johnson, also called ‘Ricky Trooper’, at Johnson’s home in Marl Road, Kingston and had been asked to present himself to the authorities.

According to the police, Johnson and three men who were travelling in a grey motorcar were involved in a verbal altercation as he swept his yard in the company of a male friend. The men reportedly drove off but returned a short while after and opened fire at Johnson hitting him several times. He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Ninjaman, however, in an interview, told YardFlex that he knew nothing about the incident and vowed to clear his name. “Me not going prison fi dis one,” he said.

The Marl Road area is known to be one of the places frequented by the deejay.





hands4.jpgAustrian Josef Fritzl, who kept his daughter in a cellar and fathered her seven children, has been convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment.

Fritzl, 73, was found guilty of all charges against him, including rape, incest, murder and enslavement. The court ordered that Fritzl should serve his life sentence in a secure psychiatric facility.

Fritzl's lawyer, Rudolf Mayer, said outside the court after the verdict: "I would say that the verdict was a logical consequence of a confession. Of course if you have 3,000 cases of rape and 24 years of being kept in a cellar, it is evident that there can only be a punishment or verdict like this one."

The life sentence was handed down for the murder by neglect of one of the children, who died soon after birth.

The defendant first denied murder and enslavement but changed his plea to guilty after seeing testimony from his daughter. The verdict is final and irreversible, as neither the defence nor the prosecution is contesting it.

Fritzl, who will be kept under suicide watch, will be sent to a co-ordination centre, where it will be determined how dangerous he is, before going on to the psychiatric facility.

Fritzl's daughter could also bring a civil case against her father, adding that there was no limit to the damages she could request.
The Austrian imprisoned his daughter in a cellar under his house for 24 years and repeatedly raped her. The daughter and three of the children were kept captive in the cellar until the case came to light in April last year, when one of them became seriously ill and was taken to hospital.

The other three children were raised in the family home by Fritzl and his wife, after he told people that his daughter had abandoned them and joined a sect.

Break Through
yardflex.DW.jpgI accomplish my goals with strength and enthusiasm.

All the abundance of a new season of growth may not be evident just yet; in time, however, it will be.

Likewise, the results of all the time and energy I have put toward a goal may not be evident yet, but I remain positively, productively focused on it. Energized by the presence of God within me, I have the strength needed to complete what I have set my mind on completing.

There is always the potential for accomplishment within me. Just as surely as the season of new life unfolds, so, too, does my potential to break through any barriers to an accomplishment. My goals then become realities, revealing the results of my divinely inspired work.

"The earth produces of itself, first the stalk, then the head, then the full grain in the head. But when the grain is ripe, at once he goes in with his sickle, because the harvest has come."--Mark 4:28-29

chris-brown-and-rihanna.jpgThe rumour mills are at it and again and this time it’s news surrounding Rihanna and Chris Brown that they made an explosive sex tape.

According to gossip web site mediatakeout.com which quoted from their source the Star Magazine.

The pop princess worries that other shocking images could go public – wild sex tapes of her with her abusive boyfriend Chris Brown.

“Rihanna has no issues with her sexuality … She can be really out there. But she’d be mortified if her friends and family found this out.”
Other comments given on the site were: “Chris and Rihanna enjoy an aggressive love life that would shock many people … Rihanna loves dressing up – including as a dominatrix – and role playing. They both have kinky sides.”

Rihanna isn’t always the little goody-two-shoes everyone thinks she is, and Chris doesn’t want or need another scandal.”

Well for their sakes yardflex hopes this just remain a rumour as we think they have both had enough.





Mary J. Blige planning gospel album

maryjblige.jpgIn a recent interview with BellaOnline, secular singer Mary J Blige has declared that she too will be making a gospel album, sooner rather than later.

We all know that Blige is not a Christian but you could say she is definitely a work in progress.

She has been known as one to always connect with God through her music, as in few of her songs she gives him thanks and acknowledges God's presence in her life. Songs such as 'Testimony', "Work In Progress (Growing Pains)," and "Work That," to name a few.

We at YardFlex anticipate the production and release of this album, and hope to see other artistes both locally and internationally following in her footstep.

let go let god.jpgSomething good is happening, and I accept it now.
My Spirit-inspired patience allows for the unfoldment of the highest good. I am not just waiting for something good to happen. I know something good is happening, and I am ready to accept it.
Another way to describe my patience is that I am letting go of all worry and concern and letting God express wisdom through me. With this combination of releasing the negative and accepting the good, I recognize the best options or considerations.
As I let go and let God, I don't react to a situation; I respond from Spirit within. Relaxed and at ease, I go about doing what is mine to do. I allow space for others to do what is theirs to do. This leaves the way clear for a divine solution.
"Be patient, therefore, beloved, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious crop from the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains."--James 5:7

He died at the Kingston Public Hospital.

Rasta-Girl-Posters.jpgCan you believe it last month we celebrated yet another Black History Month where movies showing how blacks fought and paved the way for us to enjoy true freedom. Everything that’s black was lauded, men whose inventions completely revolutionized the world. We were reminded of all the reasons why it’s wonderful to be black and then a simple walk on the street brings home the brutal reality that all these wonderful things are lost on a lot of folks.

They are all around you their faces with its unnatural hue, staring at you as they wash the windshields of your car.

A trek into the dancehall is a contradiction as some of them takes pride in their fancy footwork, but is ashamed of the colour of their skin.

In the broad sunlight they walk around with their faces covered as their skins cannot take the harsh light of the sun.

What is it about this phenomenon that allows a race that should be bursting with pride to be slow destroying themselves with the bleaching crème?


The more things change the more they remain the same, that’s all I can say. Courageous men and women died that we could be free but yet they are in the greatest bondage of all – that of the mind. They refuse to see their colour as something of worth, but instead look back and admire the lighter colour, thinking it’s something to aspire to.

Just what will it take for black people to realise and live the words of Marcus Mosiah Garvey, “up ye mighty race, you can accomplish what you will?”

What’s need a revolution of the minds where Black people will start looking into the mirrors and really seeing themselves for the beautiful creatures they are…then and only then will we be able to get rid of the need to bleach and disfigure our faces just so we can appear lighter. It’s time to truly start loving yourselves and if anyone have a problem with your skin…tough luck…hold your head up high and through away the crème…black, is after all beautiful, isn’t it?

Mr. Benjamin reportedly agreed to take her on his motorcycle for a fee.

But instead the entertainer allegedly took her to another area where he attempted to steal her handbag.

His efforts resulted in him only leaving with her cellular phone.

Shocking Vibes CEO Patrick Roberts wanted

5 Comments

PRoberts.jpgHead of Shocking Vibes Entertainment, Patrick Roberts is a wanted man. A warrant was on Monday issued for his arrest after he failed to appear in court to answer to tax evasion charges.

A businessman, music producer, and unsuccessful People's National Party candidate, Roberts was scheduled to appear before the Tax Court to answer to charges that he owes the government millions of dollars in unpaid taxes.

However, when his name was called in court he did not appear and, as a result, the judge ordered a warrant for his arrest.

In his capacity as CEO of Shocking Vibes Roberts was responsible for the career of top flight deejay, Moses ‘Beenie Man’ Davis, who was himself involved in a tax evasion drama last year. The court charged that Beenie Man owed the government some $48-million in taxes.

The charges against the former Shocking Vibes deejay were subsequently dismissed, on the grounds that the notice of assessment was flawed.

Roberts last year stood the surety for politician Kern Spencer, who is charged in the Cuban light-bulb scandal.





Spring Break brought out the massive

spice!.jpgThe Long Bay Beach in Negril was abuzz with fever pitch excitement as the massive turned out for the Spring Break stage show.

It was a night which saw some great performances coming from the likes of I-Octane, Gyptian, Blonde Ras, Richie Spice and Bascombe X.

Beekie Bailey scored big points with his performance as he after lashed out at some of the top dancehall artistes such as Mavado, Vybz Kartel Monster Hemphire and Anthony B who he claims eat Lobster.

It was drama when Singer J took the stage, his constant movements seemed to irritate one of the cameramen and he himself at one point bounced the photographer out the way. It all climaxed with Singer J hitting the ground seemingly pushed by the cameraman. Things could have gotten out of hand, but thank heavens it didn’t.

Spice really got the crowd worked up as she performed Ramping Shop calling in two volunteers to take Vybz Kartel lot. She even took out a condom as she advocated for safe sex. Her performance was really steamy and the crowd just loved it.

When the gully god Mavado took centre stage it was pandemonium as the crowd went wild, for the singjay who is firmly perched “on the rock”. He went through his paces reeling out one hit after another.

Beenie Man was in his usual awesome form and could do no wrong for his hungry fans who ate up all that he had to offer and still wanted more.

CONF6Large.jpgAfter three hours of “intense deliberations” the jury in the Peter King trial found the accused, 25-year-old Sheldon Pusey, guilty of manslaughter in the death of former trade.

Ten of 12 jurors on Monday voted to convict Pusey on the lesser charge of manslaughter.
The other two jurors wanted to free Pusey, who sat motionless in the prisoners' dock at the Home Circuit Court while the verdict was being announced. He will be sentenced on April 1.
Following the adjournment, defence attorney Berriston 'Berry' Bryan told reporters that he will be appealing the verdict and “the prosecution has suppressed evidence critical to the defence."
This suppressed evidence is the prosecution's decision not to tender into evidence two knives that were taken from King's Waterloo Road, home a day after the March 2006 killing.

The prosecution had said during the trial that the knives were not relevant to the case, as no blood or prints belonging to King or the accused were found on them.

Pusey, a resident of Gordon Town in St Andrew, had been on trial since January 19 for the murder of the 64-year-old King, whose nude, mutilated body was found in his bedroom covered by a comforter. King's body had a total of 30 wounds, including four stabs and four chops.





A music free Jamaica

Rasta-Girl-Posters.jpgI’m dreaming of a new Jamaica where people can live in love and harmony. Where we can once again enjoy the simple things in life and kick back to some great music…whether on or off the bus!

Sad to say maybe that’s all I will be able to do …dream. If the government has its way then listening to music on the bus and being entertained on a long journey by watching a movie or taking in some music videos may be a thing of the past.

While the government moves to censor the music, I have no problem with that, but cutting off every avenue of entertainment … well that’s crossing the line.

Needless to say it’s not even safe to be driving in a vehicle that isn’t equipped with a radio. There are times when it will be necessary to listen to the radio to monitor the news especially in times of storms or maybe to find out if there unrest and areas to avoid.

This leaves the big question is Broadcast Commission cleaning up the music or eliminating all forms of music altogether?

If we sit back and allow this to happen then what else will be taken from us? Just think about it and make your voices be heard now.

Another Malawi child adoption by Madonna?

madonna300.jpgDespite the controversy surrounding Madonna’s earlier adoption of a Malawi child from the poor South African region she has indicated that she is willing to do it again.

Critics accused the government of skirting laws that ban non-residents from adopting children in Malawi, which has been badly hit by the AIDS epidemic, after Madonna took on David Banda.

"Many people -- especially our Malawian friends -- say that David should have a Malawian brother or sister," she said in response to emailed questions from Malawi's the Nation newspaper.

"It's something I have been considering, but would only do, if I had the support of the Malawian people and the Government."

A Malawian court approved the adoption of David last year.

Madonna has said the controversy had been difficult to deal with but she was happy to be involved in a case that might pave the way for more adoptions in Malawi. An estimated one million children in the country have been orphaned by AIDS.

Madonna, who began adoption proceedings in 2006, took David when he was 13-months-old after his father had placed him in an orphanage following the death of his wife.

David is growing up in the high-flying life of a leading popstar, worlds away from his village of Lipunga, where Banda's relatives eat staple food like maize meal from simple bowls and meals are cooked on open fires.

I release the gladness of my soul into the environment.
It's been said that, on average, children laugh up to 300 times a day while adults laugh only 15 times a day. In reality, however, there is no age limitation on laughter.
eqwe.jpgIf I want to feel younger and look younger, then it's only natural that part of my daily routine is to laugh more. Laughing gives the muscles of my face, chest, and abdomen a workout. A hearty laugh stimulates my heart rate, causes me to breathe deeply, and releases happiness hormones, my endorphins.
Laughter is one of the ways I express my gratitude to God. As I laugh, I release the gladness of my soul into the environment--creating something that's good for me and good for all those around me.
"Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then it was said among the nations, 'The Lord has done great things for them.' "--Psalm 126:2

usain-bolt-m.jpgCould this be true…if it is then the Premier League has just gotten more interesting. Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly set to meet up with the fastest man on the planet, Usain Bolt, in a bid to become even faster.

As if it isn’t already a strugle to keep up with the Portuguese pace and skill on the field, this meet will create even more problems for his challengers.

According to the Independent on Sunday, Bolt is a huge Ronaldo fan and will meet up with the player in the summer with a view to improving his sprinting.

The 22-year-old Jamaican will be in Europe for the World Championships, which take place in Berlin in August, and will take time out to give Ronaldo some pointers.

His manager, Ricky Simms, confirmed that the meeting between the two superstars will take place.

“It’s definitely going to happen,” said the Irishman. “We’ll sort something out this summer when Usain comes to Europe.”

The Jamaican stunned the world last summer at the Beijing Olympics when he won three gold medals, in the 100 metres, 200 metres and 4 x 100 metres relay, smashing all three world records in the process.

The Independent on Sunday reports that Bolt is a huge football fan and that the proposed meeting between the two came about when he asked Ronaldo for a signed shirt for his collection.

The Man United winger was apparently happy to comply with the request, in return for sprinting lessons from the world’s fastest man.

BeBe Winans.jpgPopular gospel singer BeBe Winans is facing a charge of misdemeanor and domestic assault following a dispute with his ex-wife in Nashville.
An arrest warrant filed Wednesday says 46-year-old Benjamin “BeBe” Winans got into argument with his ex-wife about their children at her home on February 13.

The warrant says Debra Winans told authorities Benjamin Winans pushed her to the ground.

He was released from the Davidson County jail Thursday after posting $1,000 bond.

Winans says in a statement that “the allegations are inconsistent with my character.”

Winans is a judge on BET’s television show “Sunday Best.” The four-time Grammy award-winner has recorded gospel albums with his sister CeCe Winans.

20090313.jpgGiving expression to the love of God within me, I bless my heart.
As strong and reliable as my heart is, my feelings have an incredible impact on it. So I know not to hold stressful thoughts or feelings in my mind and heart.
My heart is a physical expression of my consciousness. When I feel positive emotions as I share a tender moment with someone or I am alone in serene meditation, this precious organ is calm. It relates with mind and body in healthy, renewing ways.
My love and intuition are heart-connected. And so I practice loving, positive thinking and acting. I forgive others, and I also forgive myself. I give expression to the love of God within me.
With each thought and action, I bless my heart and, at the same time, I am also blessing others in a heartfelt way.
"The Lord does not see as mortals see; they look on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart."--1 Samuel 16:7

What’s with the killing in the dancehall

Webmin
22 Comments

By Rootzgirl
Rasta-Girl-Posters.jpgThere is a saying that my grandmother used to repeat and it’s what you sow you will reap. Why are we amazed at the various murders now taking place in the dancehall?” Why the sense of outrage when a boat event turns out to be deadly or shootings are taking place at club events and at the dances? It should be drawing any shocked gasps from us.

We are the ones who have embraced the gun lyrics in the dances which glorifies the act of killing people as if they are not worth much. One DJ even bragged about his prowess implying he’s bold enough to kill man in broad daylight, while another describe the gory details of marrow spilling.

I could go on and on name a lot more songs that makes the act of taking a life seem like nothing, so when these songs help to feed the appetite of the perpetrators don’t complain.

That’s why I have to big up Bounty Killer who recognized the importance of effect songs and artistes have on their fans when he went on stage and said, “mi nuh want nuh more people fi dead!”
Yes that’s the stance artistes should now be taking realizing the responsibility they have and they power they have over listeners. I am not saying that they are the ones urging them to pull the trigger, but if they do songs that are more conscious then it could help bring about a change.

Just go into a hardcore dance and you can feel the tenseness, but on the other hand go to an oldies jam or some singers session and feel the lightness in the air, the sense of enjoyment.
The dance has become a scary place to be and that’s sad. People are now thinking twice before they leave their homes. It’s time to reclaim what was once our pride and joy…cut the almshouse out of it and let’s get back to some real jamming!

Beenie Man also took potshots at Barbee calling her ‘crazy’. He also admitted that he had dated the Junoesque singer, one of Beenie's first public admissions of their failed relationship that had the media world in a tizzy for well over a year.

“Barbee wanted a Chris Brown-Rihanna thing, and I couldn’t deal with that,” he said, seemingly making a reference to the toxic nature of their past relationship where they reportedly had many loud arguments.

When contacted about Beenie’s disparaging comments, Barbee who was overseas on a business trip, said she “had nothing negative to say about Beenie’.

“I am just promoting Barbee right now,” the statuesque singer who scored a hit with the reggae-flavoured ‘Love You Anyway’ this year.

EHJ_Beverly_Hall_web.jpgDr Beverly Hall, who is Public Schools Superintendent for Atlanta, has been named National Superintendent of the Year by the American Association of School Administrators (AASA).

The Jamaican born Dr. Hall, who is a former student of the St. Andrew High School for Girls, said she was honoured and humbled by the honour, as this was a great achievement for her as a member of a minority group. "Education is my passion and when you have a goal and work hard and others buy into your goal, the rewards can be fulfilling," she stated.

The recognition, which came with a US$10,000 cash prize, is the highest professional honour for an urban educator and K-12 school administrator in the United States.

The announcement, which was made at the AASA's National Conference on Education in San Francisco last weekend, capped a year of high-level honours for Dr. Hall, who was named Georgia Superintendent of the Year in December by the Georgia School Superintendents Association, and one of the 100 most influential Georgians by Georgia Trend magazine.

A new me has emerged.
cocreator.jpgWatching accomplished athletes execute their skills with perfection, I may consider their performances to be easy and effortless. I know, though, that they have dedicated years of practice toward honing their skills.
There is truth in the adage "practice makes perfect." My spiritual practices of prayer and meditation, faith and trust are more than skills. They are a way of life, a way of living in awareness of who I am and what I can accomplish as a cocreator with God.
With a dedication of my time and understanding, my heart and soul to God, I am spiritually enriched. I am renewed in spirit, mind, and body, and my life is a reflection of the new me that has emerged.
"You have stripped off the old self with its practices and have clothed yourselves with the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge according to the image of its creator."--Colossians 3:9-10

Caltariba system - Etana

Verse One
There is a little place in Africa
Where all the children died of aids
And there is a little place called Jamaica
Children loose their lives in first grade
And there is a little place in Asia
Children loose their lives to bombs and grenade
And there is a little place called America
Children are growing up being afraid
Caught up in the system

Chorus (x2)
Don't wanna be caught up
Don’t wanna be caught up in deh oh oh in deh
Don’t wanna be caught up don't wanna be caught up
In deh oh oh in deh.

Verse Two
Were are living in a crazy lazy word
Most people fight for power not peace
And we are living in a crazy lazy world
Only Jah can save us from the belly of the beast
Caught up in the system
Don’t wanna be a victim

Chorus (x2)
Don't wanna be caught up
Don’t wanna be caught up in deh oh oh in deh
Don’t wanna be caught up don't wanna be caught up
In deh oh oh in deh.

Verse Three
Say there is no more chains
Round their feet or round their necks
But the trick is it’s all in the brain
Fighting everyday that's the price you have to pay
For the birth right that you gave away. Gave away.

refresh.jpgI am spiritually refreshed and vibrantly alive!
Today I may feel a desire for a fresh outlook on life: to adopt new, healthful habits or rekindle a relationship.
Renewal can take place in ways that hold the prospect of greater strength and vibrance. As I commit to seeing someone or something in a new way--honoring myself by doing whatever nurtures my mind and body or sharing time with a special someone--I am replenished in mind, body, and soul.
There is also a deeper, more significant form of being refreshed. My spiritual rejuvenation is a celebration of God's presence within me. I find moments to pray alone and with others. I honor my worth. I meditate in a peaceful silence or while listening to music or the sounds of nature.
Spiritually refreshed, I am vibrantly alive!
"Yes, brother, let me have this benefit from you in the Lord! Refresh my heart in Christ."--Philemon 1:20

The RM gave Vassell a proper scolding after he pleaded guilty, he chided him for contributing to corruption instead of helping his colleagues to get rid of it.
The court heard that in early January Vassel's superior observed he had an unusual bulge in his cap. He was searched and a quantity of ganja and money found in his possession. The police were subsequently called. He was charged by Detective Corporal Debbie Bailey of the Spanish Town Police Station.





The healing powers of marijuana

marijuana-leaf.jpgResearch is proving more and more medicinal uses of marijuana (Cannabis Sativa), the latest comes from the Journal of Natural Products which recently published a paper outlining the newly isolated antibiotic effects of the class of molecules known as cannabanoids. This group includes the non-psychoactive cannabichromene, cannabigerol, and cannabidiol but also includes the well-known and definitely psychotropic tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)."

To break down all the medical mumbo jumbo the bottom line is that marijuana has a lot of medicinal properties to it and has been known to get rid of a lot of ‘superbugs’.
And to think that the FDA determined that this plant has no medical use or value.

Users of marijuana are standing by the plant, as they have had neither the flu nor any contagious disease.
Yardflex would love your feedback…has it proven to be a great medication for you?

Faced with an economic challenge such as a job loss or an unexpected financial need, I waste no time with thoughts of lack. I move right into God's creative flow of abundance so that I move forward in realizing my full potential.
Because I am a receptive channel for God's abundance, I draw my good to me. In unlimited ways, I use my inner resources of divine ideas and infinite intelligence. These resources support me as I move through the decisions and actions that lie ahead.
The present situation is ripe with opportunities. I am ready to accomplish great things and to realize the prosperity that is always available to me. The kingdom of God is my absolute reality, right here and now.
"The kingdom of God is not coming with things that can be observed; nor will they say, 'Look, here it is!' or 'There it is!' For, in fact, the kingdom of God is among you."--Luke 17:20-21

What’s happening with our kids?

Webmin
10 Comments

By Rootsgirl

Rasta-Girl-silhouette_2.jpgThe other day I was reading a report in an evening paper and I have to say that my stomach turned at some of the things the article was saying. Can you believe it that 10 students made plans, went to an abandoned building with porno magazine, condom and a well laid out plan to have sex.

That’s not the shocking part, the part about it that gets to me is that while the society bicker about crude songs like ramping shop with the act of sex so graphically described (I see no difference between it and a porno magazine or movie) kids can lay their hands on these kinds of materials on the internet, books, cable TV and even from other friends.

Their curiousity piked, and there is no one to explain stuff to them. The sad part is that the parents themselves might even be leaving those kinds of materials around for their kids to find.

While the country gets outraged at what they think are some really rude kids who are too advanced for their age, the slackness continues with parents even encouraging their kids to participate in daggering activities and finding it amusing when little boys take on the challenge of ‘wining’ up on a big woman.

Kids are left on their own to watch uncensored cable channels while parents are too busy doing other stuff. They buy them the best ipods and leave the playlists all up to them…not even once taking a quick listen to just to see what they are up to.





m_92cc9e18046e4cb799e7b68d854c62d8.jpgInspector Cassius Lennox of the Area One Police must have thought what he was seeing was something out of a story book when he went to check out a rumour and happened upon more than what he bargained for.

10 kids none older than 10 planned a sex rendezvous at an abandoned building. But their plans went awry when an adult discovered what they were up to and called the police.

The boys had condoms and on the scene also were porno magazines. The kids seeing they were busted made a mad dash for their clothes.

The kids apparently were planning this secret tryst for days…thanks to quick intervention it never happened.

The kids parents are urged to get counseling for them.





Jackson comeback leaves unanswered questions

eng_jackson_BM_Verm_706984g.jpgMichael Jackson’s short appearance in London on Thursday at the 02 Arena where he has a series of 10 concerts lined to begin on July 8 has left a lot of questions in the eyes of those who saw him.

According to reports circulating in the media the 50-year-old king of pop showed up looking a little fatter than they have seen him in recent photographs.

But that wasn’t the shocker, his announcement that the London shows will be his final performances there and he will be singing the songs his fans want to hear.

Jackson was quoted as saying “This is it, this is really it, this is the final curtain call."

According to the report Randy Phillips, president of AEG Live which signed Jackson for the concerts, had few concrete answers.

He did not rule out more concerts in London and elsewhere in the future, and much more than just music appears to be riding on the summer shows.

"None of us are sure," he was quoted as saying to Reuters. "I didn't want to get so far ahead of what he wanted to do.

"We're holding dates," he added, referring to the O2 Arena where Prince performed 21 nights in 2007 to critical acclaim. "We don't know how big the demand will be."

On Jackson's health, Phillips was more confident, saying the performer, who has looked frail and gaunt in recent months, had passed a lengthy physical examination.

And asked if Jackson would sing or lipsynch on his eagerly awaited return, he replied: "He's singing."

THREE YEAR DEAL

AEG Live have a plan to work with Jackson for the next three and a half years that involves concerts, new music and movies, including a big-screen adaptation of Jackson's seminal hit and video "Thriller."

The agreement could earn Jackson "well over $400 million," Phillips said, although that would depend on all of the ventures discussed being carried out.

"After announcing that the concerts will be in July, and that he loves us all so, Jackson is gone -- giving four minutes to people who have been waiting five hours, and 12 years, and a lifetime," wrote Caitlin Moran in The Times newspaper.

Fans believe Jackson, a virtual recluse since his acquittal in 2005 of child abuse charges, is wise to choose London for his comeback rather than, say, Las Vegas.

"I think the Europeans are not as judgmental as the Americans, there is a solid fan base here and we're into 1980s disco and soul, perhaps more than the U.S. where rap and hip-hop dominate," said Lucy Wood, an artist in her late 30s.

I give generously from my heart.
give.jpgThe good I do for others makes a difference in their lives. I contribute my energies in ways that benefit people--some known and others unknown to me. By being helpful, I honor the Christ within me and within them.
When I give of myself, I am expressing consideration and generosity. Some ways I serve in my family and the organizations I belong to are traditional. Shared relationships and beliefs are honored as family, spiritual, and cultural practices are celebrated.
I also reflect on additional innovative ways to make a positive difference in the lives of others. I am blessed each time I give generously from my heart.

0219_rihanna_photo_beating_ex_01.jpgIt seems as if the trial regarding Chris Brown’s assault on Caribbean queen Rihanna will reveal a lot of stuff. Already surfacing is the way how he went berserk on poor Rihanna after she read a text message he received from a girl.

Deteails revealed in court from Detective De Shon Andrew notes gave more insight into what really happened.

According to him, blood filled Rihanna’s mouth. Brown, 19, allegedly told her, “I’m going to beat the s— out of you when we get home. You wait and see!” Rihanna called her assistant and left a message saying, “I am on my way home. Make sure the cops are there when I get there.” The police notes say that prompted Brown to reply: “You just did the stupidest thing ever. Now I’m really going to kill you.”

The report also says that Brown bit Rihanna and put her in a headlock, and that she almost lost consciousness.

“Brown resumed punching [Rihanna] and she interlocked her fingers behind her head and brought her elbows forward to protect her face,” according to the notes. “She then bent over at the waist, placing her elbows and face near her lap in attempt to protect her face and head from the barrage of punches being levied upon her by Brown.”

Chris Brown who is facing a felony charge could find himself doing up to four years if he is found guilty.





BATTLE OF THE LEGENDS CLASH.jpgNew York is set to be ablaze when four legends in the sound system industry take center stage at Amazura on Good Friday, April 10 for a clash that many are anticipating will be one for the books. For the first time ever, pioneer sound men David Rodigan, Down Beat, King Jammy’s and Black Scorpio are set to compete on one stage at “Battle of the Legends” before thousands of fans.

The sound clash industry is chock-full of rivalries. Two of the most notorious, which have been brewing for decades, include that of David Rodigan/Down Beat and King Jammy’s/Black Scorpio. Irish and Chin have now created the opportunity for them to ‘settle the score’ once and for all. It will all unfold at “Battle of the Legends” which is the first of such clash line-ups that promoter has in store in the near future.


The idea of having these greats clash and inevitably nurture their younger counterparts emerged after David Rodigan, Down Beat, King Jammy’s and Black Scorpio were honored for their accomplishments at Death Before Dishonor 8 in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Their striking performance at the event and strong crowd reception were tell-tale indicators that a clash was a must.

“I think that these sounds embody the competitive, yet good sportsmanship of the sound clash golden era,” says Garfield “Chin” Bourne. “This clash will afford young clash fans with a blueprint of a genuine sound clash....moreover, it will show them how an intense clash can go down without excessive cussing and disrespect."

Always

dailyword-bird.jpg

Trusting in divine guidance, I accept unlimited options and opportunities.

Life holds countless opportunities for me. Whatever the situation may be, there is always another means, another blessing available to me. Even if I feel I am going in circles, with closer examination, I find I am making progress, spiraling upward. Trusting in divine guidance, I am open to the array of blessings revealed to me.

There is always another method--to learn, remember, try, or apply. There is always another place--to work, live, play, or find support. There is always another friend--to contact, share with, or meet anew. There is always another work--to accomplish, contribute to, or receive from. My options and alternatives are limitless. In renewed awareness, I affirm: There is always another way.

"Then the sentinel saw another man running; and the sentinel called to the gatekeeper and said, 'See, another man running alone!' The king said, 'He also is bringing tidings.' "--2 Samuel 18:26

rihanna_chris_brown_married_09.JPGOh boy the rumours have been swirling regarding the reunion between Chris Brown and Rihanna. Since her photo was published in on TMZ many were outraged some wanted Chris Brown’s blood.

AIDONIA_EUROPE_09_edit.jpgDancehall artiste Sheldon ‘Aidonia’ Lawrence current single ‘Hundred Stab’ on the Sky Daggering riddim by Equinoxx Productions is creating a lot of noise on the scene for him.

The French based selectors have worked with some of the industry’s premier talents including Black Uhuru, Mykal Rose, Capleton, Natasja Scrul among others and with Aidonia now in Europe, it was only natural that the two would cross paths says Soul Stereo foundation member Rico, “We respect his music and the energy that he brings to the stage. We are very happy to be a part of this tour with him” he says.

Inner Peace

dw_bird.jpgI breathe into this moment of tranquility and experience the peace of God.

On the wall inside the Unity Peace Chapel are the words that Jesus spoke to quiet a storm at sea: "Peace, Be Still." These three powerful words are a reminder for me to claim the peace that is within me.

In prayer, I breathe into a precious time of tranquility and experience the peace of God within every fiber of my being. My awareness of God's gentle, loving presence assures me that all is calm. Within my heart and soul, whatever the time or circumstances of my experience, God is present.

In times of both quiet and activity, I speak the words "Peace! Be still!" Connecting with the truth of this statement, I am at peace.
"He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, 'Peace! Be still!' Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm.... And they were filled with great awe and said to one another, 'Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?' "--Mark 4:39, 41





The music is bigger than us all

Rasta-Girl-silhouette_2.jpgNo questions asked, music has evolved. Days gone by there were some songs that could not be played, songs that we now consider tame by today's standards. Now we are in this generation and the debate is raging surrounding the explicit song Ramping Shop. Upon listening to it I must say it was a very cleverly written song, at the same time I felt some measure of sadness. Here are two talent people who could describe the bedroom activity so creatively and they had to spoil it with the expletives and graphic lyrics.

Looking back I remember another song that beautiful described making love and till this day it remains a favourite of mine.

The song is A1 Lover done by Spragga Benz. A part of the lyrics goes "climb the twin peak to the chocolate top..." now we don’t need a lot of guesses to figure out he is talking about breast nipples. But the song is so tasteful there really is nothing to be offended about. Now I am no prude, but please there is a limit to what we can get away with in the name of music.

one day my mom was on the verandah with my sister and she spotted kiddy coming into the yard and ran into my gran aunts room to hide.

now my gran aunt a big time coward took brave heart and went out to tell kiddy that my mom is not there and who he saw was two country girls who came to visit.

my aunt was fearful and wanted to get away
so she lied and told kiddy that she's not feeling too well.

while he's praying all of a sudden kiddy shouted and said "RISE!!!!! my gran aunt with no hesitation jump up quick to his order. so mom asked her why she jump so quickly.... she said because she heard that he was praying for a woman the week before and he told her to rise and she did not and he gave the woman a lick in ar head.

20090303.jpgThe love of God heals, protects, and blesses me.
The power of divine love is never restricted by time, space, or circumstance. Knowing no bounds or limitations, love blesses all with goodness and beauty.
Even when I'm feeling vulnerable or fearful, when I'm unsure of my finances or my security, God's powerful light and love break through. Divine love graces me with its sweet, tender presence.
The love of God heals, protects, and blesses me. It comes to me in a flash of insight when I am in need of guidance. Walking in nature or sitting quietly in prayer, I feel love permeate my being.
Being God's love in expression, I am expressing my gratitude for the love of God for me and within me.
"We have known and believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and those who abide in love abide in God, and God abides in them."--1 John 4:16

Snoop Dogg joins Nation of Islam

snoop-dogg-121008.jpgSnoop Dogg has revealed he has joined the Nation of Islam after appearing at the religious group's annual Saviours' Day event in Chicago.

The rapper, who described himself as the "leader of the hip-hop community", told followers he would share what he learned with other musicians.

He told reporters that he joined the group because he was "doing what's right and representing what's right".

It preaches self-reliance for black people within an Islamic framework.

At Sunday's event, the rapper sat on stage while Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan gave a speech.

He said afterwards that listening to the speech from Mr Farrakhan was "about a mirror - it's about looking at yourself".

He added: "We're doing a lot of wrongs among ourselves that need correcting."

When asked if he had joined the movement he said: "I'm already in the Nation, that's why I'm here.

"I'm an advocate for peace, I've been in the peace movement ever since I've been making music.

"My whole thing is not about really trying to push my thing on you.

"It's just about the way I live, and I live how I'm supposed to live as far as doing what's right and representing what's right - that's why I was here today."

He would not say when he had joined the Nation of Islam.

Other rappers previously involved with the movement include NWA star-turned-actor Ice Cube.





Event Info Card2.jpgFollowing an impressive debut last year of the Reggae Symphony, at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts (BCPA), three reggae icons will again grace the stage of the Center for a second performance to be held on Sunday, March 29.

The premiere performance "Reggae Symphony 2009" will feature reggae ambassador Freddie McGregor, reggae songstress Marcia Griffiths, and veteran singer and songwriter, Bob Andy. Saxophonist Dean Fraser will also make a guest appearance.

The three artists who have made international stage names individually, will be accompanied by Lloyd Parkes' We the People Band, and the Reggae Strings Orchestra as they perform from an extensive repertoire of recordings.

All three performers have been awarded the Commander of Distinction by the Government of Jamaica for their achievements, and contributions to the development of the island's musical heritage.

Reggae Symphony was introduced to the Broward Center following an alliance forged with the Consulate General of Jamaica, resulting in a range of successful performances, including the National Dance Theatre Company of Jamaica, Dem Three Jamaican Tenors, and Jamaica Farewell. The Broward Center also housed the annual Reggae Soca Awards, produced by veteran South Florida media personality, Winsome Charlton of Hi Class Promotions.

Pregnant_belly_button.jpgA NINE-year-old girl pregnant after years of alleged sexual abuse by her stepfather is likely to abort twins she is carrying in a case that has shocked Brazil, reports in Sao Paulo said.

The Brazilian girl, who was not identified because she is a minor, was found to be four months pregnant after being taken to hospital suffering stomach pains, the news websites G1, pe360graus and the Diario de Pernambuco reported.

She was being cared for by a medical and psychological team in the Maternal-Child Institude in the northern city of Recife, close to her hometown of Alagoinha in Pernambuco state, they said.

"We don't know if she will develop the pregnancy up to the end because of the structure of her body. It is a big risk for her,'' the doctor who confirmed her pregnancy before she was taken to the institute, Jose Severiano Cavalcanti, told the Diario de Pernambuco.

"She doesn't have a pelvis able to support a gestation of twins,'' he said.





Human trafficking still a problem - US report

human-wrists1.jpgDespite attempts by local authorities, human trafficking remains a major problem for Jamaica, according to a recent human-rights report published by the United States (US) Department of State.

The report states that regardless of the fact that laws in Jamaica prohibit all forms of trafficking, persons are very often transferred to, from, through and within the country.

The conclusions of the US 2009 report on the incidents of human trafficking in Jamaica are quite similar to its 2008 review.

According to the US State Department, most of the victims were poor women and girls, but also increasingly boys, who were trafficked from rural to urban and tourist areas for commercial exploitation.

Minors were involved

"Women were reportedly trafficked from the Dominican Republic, Russia and Eastern Europe, while some women and girls were trafficked to Canada, the US, The Bahamas and other Caribbean destinations," the report, which was released last week, further stated. "Children trafficked within the country may also be subject to domestic servitude and forced labour."

bk we go hard.jpgI am life, love, and creativity in full expression!
Am I feeling there is so much more I can do in life or desire to do with my life? That feeling may be an inner prompting that reminds me I have a great work to do, great gifts to give, and a great life to live.
Because I am a creation of God, there is a purpose for me. As I let more of my Christ nature be expressed in all that I think, do, and say, I am being life, love, and creativity in full expression. My life is then so much more about my spiritual fulfillment than simply about my productivity.

The more I give from my spiritual nature, the more I find I have to give. In prayer, I receive fresh inspiration and recharge my spiritual energy. "Prayed up," I have the incentive to explore ways I can give back to life as much as I receive from life.
Life is great because it is a gift from God!

"I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly."--John 10:10

Kirk Headley.jpg31-year-old International model Kirk Headley was reportedly found dead at the upscale Paddington Terrace residence of his parents in Kingston, Jamaica. According to a report in the The Jamaica Observer Kirk’s body was found hanging outside the house early Thursday morning and the police suspect suicide.

The tragic discovery was made shortly after Headley had returned home from the Norman Manley airport where he had dropped off his parents to catch an early flight to Mexico via Miami. Kirk’s parents, Lindy and Carmen Headley are now on their way back to Jamaica after learning of the horrible loss.

Kirk is the grandson of the celebrated former West Indies cricketer George Headley. Kirk is a graduate of University of Technology and he shot to international prominence in the mid 1990s when he was selected by the then fashion editor of Vibe Magazine Emile Wilbeken to do a multi page swim wear spread in the glossy monthly.

The shoot was considered a success and this opened up fashion opportunities for Kirk that included a residential stint in South Africa.

Last year, Kirk was featured in the music video The Love That a Woman Should Give to a Man shot for VP Records recording artist Althea Hewitt. The song is a Phyllis Dillon classic. Kirk was also featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show in the late 1990s, having been voted first runner up in the Sexiest Man In the Caribbean contest.

It appeared Kirk Headley suffered from a bipolar condition, and Jamaican police sources say he was depressed and receiving treatment for his illness.





Sample6.jpgHonestly, mi really amazed at how tings change, memba one time man and woman woulda get dem groove on di dancefloor, now if you notice di trend change real bad. A pure man a scramble fi di videolight if it mean sey dem all a haffi get di woman dem outa di way.

Fi real back inna di going to dances it was like a whole activity by itself, you woulda si hustlers, di jerk man, di peanut vendor, soup man you get di drift, the hottie hottie girl dem whey dress nuh puss boot and of course do beggar dem whey waan yuh “let off a ting”.

But it come een like some a di dancers dem teck ova all a di role dem whey dese people used to play. From deejays, to MC, host, promoters, hustlers, beggers, sellers you name it…and di wuss ting whey wi observe is dat di number one begger in dancehall a di make dancer dem.

In a homophobic country like Jamaica, me know people always go club fi see go-go dancers, so wid dem man yah a dance like dem a woman, it would be safe to say dat most of these dancers are male go-go(s).
Dem dancers yah a get out a hand, dem a fight wid each other fi video light, a war wid video man cause dem nah video dem and once di video go pon di woman dem, dem leave the venue.

Did Rap Kill The Black Male Singer?

Webmin
5 Comments

By Pearl Jr.
rapmusic.gifHow many of you know who the best selling Black male singer in the world for 2008 was? I bet you'll never get this right, without a few clues. Well, he's 50 years old, considered washed up and too controversial to sell, plus the majority of his songs are more than 25 years old. It's Michael Jackson, who sold more than Usher, Chris Brown, Ne-yo, John Legend, and Seal. The King of Pop sold nearly as many records worldwide as the #1 best-selling artist in the US regardless of race, Lil Wayne, whose genre of hip hop lost nearly 19.8 percent in sales from the previous year. Michael Jackson's song catalog sold 2.9 million copies with Thriller 25 topping over 2.3 million by itself, plus Michael didn't even promote it and performed nowhere! Shocking isn't it! (Lil Wayne sold nearly 3 million)

Before the 1990's, it seemed one could find a million-selling Black male recording artist on other every corner, and, at least, 20 in every Black church. Today, it's becoming more and more difficult to ignore the facts that Black men are headed to the bottom of, yet, another statistical chart.

Music, the savior of the Black race, made bearable the horrors of slavery, soothed during Jim Crow racism, and bonded in segregation. This type of Black love and togetherness ushered in the perfectly pitched passion of singers like Smokey Robinson singing countertenor (a male soprano), Michael Jackson a solid tenor, David Ruffin a baritone, and Barry White, the maestro, bass singer. Even now writing this article, name after name of remarkable Black male singers come to mind like Nat King Cole, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Jackie Wilson, Marvin Gaye, Donnie Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Ronald Isley, Al Green, Teddy Pendergrass, Luther Vandross, Jeffrey Osborne, and singing groups like The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Spinners, Stylistics, Chi-lights, Jackson 5, Earth Wind and Fire, The Moments, The Manhattans, New Edition, and Boys II Men. The list goes on and on. But today, where are the Black male singers that made Black women buy every Right On Magazine and scream with excited hysteria whenever their favorite artists appeared?

In today's world of rap music, the last solid genre created in the Black community, seemed to have seduced too many Black men wishing for their spot on the top of music entertainment fame, to speak rhythmic poetry instead of singing the melodies of love and longing.

The irony is that while the loving lyrics of Motown dominated the Black airways for decades, Black love was in bloom, and so was the growth of the music industry. Now too many Black men in the game of hip hop slop are volunteering to label Black women bitches and hos, promote criminality, excessive spending (bling), and speak of love making as purely a one night stand have contributed to the widespread decline of Black love and progress. It's no coincidence that Black love is down at the same time Black music is at its lowest levels ethically and well as financially. This decline has little to do with the recession because these declines started to manifest 6 years ago, and ringtones along with 99 cent downloads just ain't paying the bills.

I am fulfilled--mind, body, and spirit.
Blimp.jpgI have probably made some, if not all, of these statements in the past: "Someday I will take a class just for the fun of it. One day I will go on a road trip, discovering my way along the way. Maybe tomorrow I'll take time to meet my new neighbor. I'm too busy now, but in the future I will be sure to make more time for family and friends."
Today I put all limiting thoughts of the past where they belong: in the past. I know that I can do more now. I understand that this is a prompting from the Christ of my being to live my life more fully. This is the perfect day to have fun, discover more beauty in nature, connect with neighbors, and spend quality time with my family and friends.
Christ within me is the master life coach, guiding me to and through the experiences that fulfill me in mind, body, and spirit.
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."--Hebrews 13:8

T.I. getting ready to serve is jail sentence
ti6.jpgAccording to international gossip website MediaTakeOut.com today is time to pay the piper. TI will be sentenced today and he's expected to do a little less than a year in prison. Here's how the Atlanta-Journal Constitution is putting it:

* According to the plea agreement, T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., will be sentenced to one year and a day.


* The extra day means T.I. can carve 15 percent off of his sentence with good behavior. Under U.S. Bureau of Prison rules, inmates can earn such credit only if they are sentenced to longer than a year in prison.


* T.I. should serve an estimated 298 days -- or a little less than 10 months. He is expected to get credit for the two weeks he sat in jail after his arrest and before posting a $3 million bond.

According to police report, Ninjaman was among three men who drove up in a grey vehicle and shot Johnson as he swept his yard. When police declared him as a person of interest in the murder, the deejay embarked on a media campaign and declared his innocence saying he had retired from a life of crime.

Ninjaman has been in custody ever since and will return to court on April 7.

Efforts are being made by the police force to nab the other two men who are suspected of chasing and shooting Johnson to death.

guidance_yardflex.jpgI am confident as I listen to and act upon divine guidance.
Certain familiar sounds alert me to what I'm to do next: The buzz of an alarm announces that it's time to begin my day. The sound of my ringtone signals me to answer an incoming call. I may receive instructions from a supervisor, teacher, or mentor. I am always open to the guidance that comes to me seemingly out of the blue.
Yet it is in the silence that I receive the most profound guidance. I rest quietly in a place that is peaceful and comfortable. I breathe, relax, and become attuned to the many types of direction heard in my life.
My faith in divine guidance expands and enhances my receptivity to it. Solutions and answers become crystal clear. With this time in reflective prayer, I build discernment and confidence. I am blessed as I move with readiness to positive action.
"And he said, 'Let anyone with ears to hear listen!' "--Mark 4:9

luciano_gunman_killed_house.jpgYardflex takes a closer look at the gunman that engaged the police in a shootout at cultural singer Luciano’s house.

• His aliases are ‘Shooty shooty’ and ‘Conqueror’
• He was a deadly fugitive on the run for two years...this according to the police
• He was most wanted for a series of gun-related crimes including murder, shooting with intent and theft of a policeman’s firearm
• According to the police he brutally slaughtered 65-year-old Gloria McLean at an open lot on Shortwoord Road, January 15 after she chided him for his uncouth behaviour towards a child.
• Also engaged the police in a shootout at Central Village February last year

Now with a rap sheet like that the only thing we want to know and we guess it will be some time before we find out...if ever, what the hell was he doing at Luciano’s residence...and what was the singer doing having him hanging around?

RJR_Comm_Group.JPG32 employees of the RJR Communications group received their pink slips yesterday – some through voluntary early retirement.

This is the latest move as more and more companies are feeling the pinch from the recession that is hitting the country real hard.
Among those that were let go are Michael Sharpe, Simon Crosskill, who is the group head of sports.

According to a report carried in the Jamaica Observer the media group said the separation agreement was reached after consultation with all stakeholders and was in response to the continued decline in the global advertising activity and increased costs.

“The company says it is moving the group to a model of greater out-sourcing of services aimed at reducing the size of its permanent structure as well as its recurring expenses,” the release said.

not beyonce and jay z wedding picture[3].jpgWell a lot of people were speculating on how long this Hollywood romance would last, would it survive the fickle world of entertainment or would the pressure of their demanding lives tell on them? That’s the big question regarding Beyonce and Jay-Z’s marriage.

Well according to gossip web site Mediatakeout.com, it could very well be falling apart at the seams.

The site claims that rumours are already surfacing of trouble in Jay-Z and Beyonce’s marriage. The site reported a while back that they were already spending nights apart even when they were both in New York. Now there’s fresh rumour that they’re spending night apart even when they’re in the same club!

According to the site one of their readers ran into the couple at the 40/40 Club in New York and the newlyweds were apart for the entire night! The snitch further reported that Beyonce seemed angry the entire night and didn’t socialize with anyone.

Wow...we hope these are just rumours...and these two will find a way to patch up their differences.

DW_key.jpgI experience absolute peace and reassurance in God's presence.
When it seemed as though something was missing in my life, I may have made a decision that I now wish I could cancel. Perhaps I was trying to fill an emptiness within me with something outside of me, and now I know that doesn't work.

What I had been searching for, what I had needed, what I had yearned for was with me from the very beginning. In God, I found myself. In God, I found my way.

Each day as I place my trust in God, I surrender any past or present hurt. Knowing I am always in God's loving presence, I experience absolute peace and reassurance. I am in God, and God is in me.
Centering myself in the indwelling presence of God, I live my life as the unique expression of God that I am. I am at peace, reassured, and fulfilled.

Oh for some women to adorn themselves properly!

By Rootzgirl
Rasta-Girl-Posters.jpgThe other day I was driving down a certain street in downtown Kingston and I couldn’t help groaning inside. In that short journey I must have passed at least six women on the roadside dressed in torn clothes, their big bellies protruding, some looking as if they had not taken a shower from the day before and I couldn’t help but wonder if these women lived with their partners.

Of course I came to the conclusion that they didn’t live with any man, for the simple reason that no man was going to allow his woman to walk through the door looking so unkempt and as my grandmother would say “slackey tidy”.

Where is the pride that would see them taking a good shower, putting on some decent clothes and coming out on the road looking like the ladies they are supposed to be.

It is truly a turnoff for me to drive on the street and see these women parading in all kinds of careless manner…and the worst thing is that they think it is OK to behave like that.

The one instant where a friend of mine told off one and suggested she tried to put herself together must better than that, she was greeted with a string of expletives and told to mind her own business…in fact Miss Ting went as far as suggested that if my friend didn’t watch her mouth then she might get a bullet for it.

So me, I just look, groan within myself and let things lie. If women want to go around like that, then let them…the big disappointment is that there are some careless men around the place who will still hunt them and so why not, they will not see anything wrong with it.





T-Pain sued for US$5M over failed GCC appearance

t-pain-aka-faheen-najm-1.jpgAmerican hip-hop star T-Pain is being sued Hits and Jams (H&J for his non appearance at a show in Guyana.

According to a story carried in the Guyana Chronicle the company filed an action on Monday, in the 17th Judicial Circuit Court, Broward County, Florida, United States (U.S.), against hip hop superstar T-Pain and Company.

The US$5M claim is for breach of a written contract, libel, defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

A release from the plaintiff said T-Pain was scheduled to perform at Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC) February 23 last, but cancelled the appearance after what his camp described as “credible kidnapping and death threats” to the singer’s life.

H&J said, despite several requests, the American superstar and his management team refused to provide the source of the alleged threats to the promoters and their attorney, law enforcement, the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and the U.S. Consulate in Guyana, to facilitate a probe.

H&J said the R&B artiste and his team merely informed them and their attorney that the threats came from “a credible source that T-Pain’s camp trusted” and “who they have been dealing with in Guyana” and that “T-Pain has dealt with the source in the past.”

After T-Pain cancelled the Guyana show, several false and incorrect reports in the international media attributed the cancellation of T-Pain’s appearance in Georgetown, to the promoters, Hits and Jams Entertainment.

“The press releases also falsely attributed personal knowledge of the alleged telephone and e-mail threats to the promoters. The promoters do not possess any personal knowledge of the alleged threat or the credibility of the alleged threats,” H&J said.

The statement said, according to the first clause of the action, for breach of contract, obtained from the local promoters, they are seeking an award of general and special damages in the above quoted amount, which is in excess of the jurisdictional limits of the Circuit Court, attorneys and Court fees, pre-judgement interest and such other relief the Court deems just and proper, against the defendants.

It added that the plaintiffs, respectfully, reserve the right to seek and assert a claim of punitive damages pursuant to the requirements of Florida Statute 768.72.

Three other causes of action, filed against the defendant, are for libel, defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress, each seeking US$15,000 awards.

solange-knowles-wedding-b.jpgWow, it would seem that women are the target for these men who really don’t know how to treat a lady. According to gossip web site mediatakeout.com Solange, sister of Beyonce was punched in the face at a concert by a patron who appeared to be drunk.

A reader which reported the incident to the web site said at the concert which she attended in Austin on Saturday a fan punched Solange in the face.

Below is the reader’s comment to the site.

“I just wanted to say that Solange got punched in the face. The dumb [EXPLETIVE] though that it would be cute for her to jump into the [crowd] while singing. Some guy was drunk and put up his fist when Solange jumped and hit her right in the chin. He acted like it was an accident, but I saw [him] afterwards and he was laughing about it with his friends.
I know it hurt [Solange], but she kept the show moving. When she climbed back up she said something like, ‘Some guy punched my in the lip’ but then she just danced and sang like everything was cool.


All yardflex has to say is shame on you for bragging about something like that.

Who colt the game? Marley magic tested

Marley magic.jpgEven as widow of the late Bob Marley, Rita, is defending the deal with Canadian company Hilco, which has a mission to boost the Marley legend through a worldwide marketing blitz, the reggae icon’s oldest son, Ziggy is having reservations.

The deal will see Hilco tracking illegal use of the Marley image and name. But the company's main thrust is overseeing the revival of daughter Cedella's Catch A Fire clothing line and launching a series of products, which include a Marley lager.

And, herein lies the conflict. Whereas Bob’s widow sees nothing wrong with the Rastafarian’s image attached to a product such as beer, the singer’s son is not so sure that this is the right branding for his father.

Rita Marley is quoted as saying: "I drink beer, Bob drink beer, his boys drink beer. He never drank alcohol but him love him Guinness and him roots."

The Marley family have endorsed or launched several ventures bearing the singer's name, including a theme park in Florida, Hotel and Spa that opened in The Bahamas in 2007.

Turks' jet-setting premier resigns
Turks and Caicos Islands.jpgPROVIDENCIALES, Turks and Caicos Islands - Premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands, Michael Misick, who had previously promised to resign on March 31, handed in his resignation Monday, a week earlier than expected, following what an investigation called "clear signs" of corruption.

Misick, a jet-setter, said he was stepping down early to give his successor more time to set up a new government - even as Britain plans to dissolve the territory's Cabinet and legislature following the wide-ranging UK corruption inquiry.

"I now announce that I will tender my resignation effective today as premier to allow the new PNP party leader to become premier," Misick said during a brief televised address in the Atlantic islands located between Haiti and the Bahamas.

With two private jets on call and a Hollywood actress wife, the 43-year-old Misick lived like the stars who inhabit the territory where Bruce Willis got married over the weekend.





flexa.jpgThe Canadian court on Monday handed down a 6 1/2-year federal prison sentence to Garfield Sibbles, son of internationally acclaimed reggae singer, Leroy Sibbles, for killing a child under his care.

Justice Bruce Durno sentenced Garfield Anthony Sibblies, 40, of Brampton, but since Sibbles has spent the equivalent of almost six years in custody, he could be released after serving two-thirds of the remaining six months in a provincial jail.

Sibbles pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the March 22, 2006, death of baby Elijah, who was six days short of his first birthday. The court was informed that an autopsy revealed the boy had 38 injuries but could not determine a single cause of death. Elijah had brain injuries consistent with impact and shaking, but insufficient swelling of the brain to kill him.

During the sentencing, Durno said "adults protect vulnerable and defenceless children, not abuse them." He described how the child's death devastated his mother, who buried him on what would have been his first birthday, in the clothes she had bought for him to wear for that day of celebration.

Elijah's mother took Sibblies' last name, but their marriage in 2005 was one of convenience, designed to help her and her son immigrate to Canada, court heard. Sibblies had a girlfriend and didn't intend to remain with the child's mother.

Yesterday, Durno ordered Sibblies to submit his DNA to the national data bank. Upon release, he will be on 36 months of probation, during which time he will be banned from being alone with children under 10.

Sibbles denied beating the child, but admitted he took out his anger and frustration with his own life on the infant that day. He slapped him on the side of his head when he refused to swallow his food and wouldn't sit still. Later, he shook him vigorously when he suddenly fell down and became unconscious.

Last week, Sibblies apologised, telling the court there were no words to explain his remorse. Court heard he told a psychiatrist that he would never forgive himself.

It was pure Marley Magic in Negril

DSC_0545.JPGIt was total magic at Wavz Beach in Negril on Saturday with some sizzling performances from top artistes at the event dubbed Marley Magic.

Junior Kelly gave a commendable performance and had the Negril massive singing along to songs such as If Love So Nice and others.
It was a real poignant moment when Spragga Benz took centrestage and performed a song in tribute to his son Carlisle who was shot and killed under controversial circumstances by the police. His emotionally charged performance brought tears to the eyes of patrons who were all moved by the tribute.

Junior ‘One Blood’ Reid did a tight set performing some of his current hits as well as drawing from his catalogue of Black Uhuru hits. The versatile Reid kept the tourists on a high with some of his hip-hop collaborations.

DJ Capleton threatened to burn the place down with his fire chanting lyrics, it was totally heat in the place after he took the stage. His set was a flag waving, foot stomping energetic session. When he made his exit it was a totally satisfied audience.

Following King Shango’s performance it was time for the only living Wailer, Bunny. Working on tracks he delivered a solid set.

Then it was time for the Marley magic and that came in Bob’s offsprings Stephen and Junior Gong, they worked an excellent set. ‘Magic’ is the only word that can describe their voices harmoniously blending together to produce awesome music.

Their set got even more fun when they called on stage Spragga and Wayne Marshall respectively to perform with them.

When the last strains of the music filled the air at 230 am it was a totally satiated crowd that made their way home.

dogs out.jpgKnowing our oneness, we live in harmony with one another.
A heartwarming story about a female dog that lovingly mothers six orphan kittens makes the national news. Perhaps the underlying message for people is that harmony is always possible because it's not about looking the same or sounding the same. It's about knowing our oneness and letting our unique qualities enhance our relationships.
People from different backgrounds often have different ideas about the same subject. Yet a diversity of ideas can lead to a hybrid idea--one that is a combination of the best of all ideas, a divine plan.
All was created by God and called good. So harmony is the norm when we interact with one another as we were created to act--with love and understanding, with compassion and consideration.
"May the God of steadfastness and encouragement grant you to live in harmony with one another, in accordance with Christ Jesus."--Romans 15:5

$25M fire at Sizzla’s residence
sizzla4.jpgReggae/dancehall artiste, Sizzla Kalonji, may have to temporarily relocate to his August Town-based Judgement Yard property as his Richings Ave, Liguanea residence was burnt down on Sunday morning.

“Sizzla did just drive out when the fire start,” a source told YardFlex, adding that the fire started after 9:30 Sunday morning .

Yesterday morning, scores of persons, including players in the music industry — one of whom was said to have just left Sizzla's house — gathered at the Richings Avenue house, owned by Exterminator producer and manager of Sizzla, Phillip ‘Fattis’ Burrell. Burrell, who was also on the scene, was not in any mood to hold discussions with the press.

The cause of the fire, which reportedly caused extensive damage to the upscale property, is still unknown. Loss is estimated at $25 million and it is not known at this time whether or not the property was insured.





Bounty Killa gives this little girl from.JPGDigicel, Jamaica’s Bigger, Better Network in collaboration with one of Jamaica’s top dancehall artistes, Bounty Killa, distributed school supplies to the children in Majesty Gardens, the community where he was born. The day’s event also included a video shoot for two of his current singles in rotation, ‘They Don’t Know’ produced by Shane Brown and ‘Corruption’, produced by Esco and the video was directed by Ras Tingle.

Shelly Ann Curran, Senior Sponsorship Manager at Digicel Jamaica commented; “We were approached by Bounty’s agent, Sharon Burke from Solid Agency about this initiative and we had to jump on board to lend our support to this worthy cause. This idea ties closely with the Y Files campaign which Digicel supports as a Jamaican corporate citizen, sending out messages in partnership with the media condemning violence against our youth. Our nation’s children need guidance and we want to be involved in any positive project that will help to steer them in the right direction and ultimately secure a better future for them. We were happy to have been a part of this initiative with Bounty”.

joke_095.jpgTwo Jamaican badmen are walking through a rural area.

They're on the run from the police, and haven't eaten anything for days.

They see a tree in the distance, and as they get closer, they notice that it's draped with rashers of bacon, smoked bacon, crispy bacon, boiled bacon, grilled bacon, all sorts of bacon.

"Look deh!", says the first badman, "A bacon tree! And we ah dead fe hungry!"

So he starts to run toward the tree. As he gets close, he's gunned down in a hail of bullets.

He's lying wounded on the ground, and his friend shouts, "Wha'appen? Wha'appen? A who?"

The first badman replies, 'Nuh come yah man! A nuh bacon tree, is a ham

soulja-boy4.jpgIs Soulja Boy gay? That’s the million dollar question after reading an article posted on www.wjbt.com where his girlfriend the sexy actress Meagan Good bashed him on the website twitter.com on Tuesday.

She bashed the rap star claiming that he preferred boys to girls.

Asked by a fan if she and Soulja Boy were still an item, Good wrote, "No, me and Soulja Boy aren't together... That ship has sailed. Apparently, he doesn't like chicks."

And, responding to a message from her ex, the actress/model later tweeted, "You're young, rich and over-rated. You think you can have anyone."

There are things that definitely make you go hmmn!

light.jpgThe Christ light reveals what is true, and I embrace it.
Without much thought, I might attach a negative label to a situation or person. Such an attitude caused me to come to that negative conclusion before I actually knew the person or had all the facts about a situation.
On second look--when I'm looking for the good--I find good. The situation I was a bit leery of becomes an opportunity for me to learn something of value. Taking the initiative to talk with the person I thought was aloof, I find that she responds with genuine interest.
The transformation is not with the situation or person. It actually happens in my own thoughts and attitude. As I let the wisdom of the inner Christ be my guide, I experience a transformation. The Christ light reveals what is true, and I embrace it.
"He will transform the body of our humiliation that it may be conformed to the body of his glory, by the power that also enables him to make all things subject to himself."--Philippians 3:21

Ninja detained for questioning in murder case

Controversial deejay Desmond Ballentine more popularly known as Ninjaman and Brother Desmond is now behind bars, as the police continue to gather information linking the deejay to Tuesday’s gun murder of a 20-year-old man in the Marl Road area of Kingston.

Ninja turned up with his attorney, Norma Linton at the Hunt’s Bay Police Station on Thursday, and was detained. He was named by the police as a person of interest in the murder of Ricardo Johnson, also called ‘Ricky Trooper’, at Johnson’s home in Marl Road, Kingston and had been asked to present himself to the authorities.

According to the police, Johnson and three men who were travelling in a grey motorcar were involved in a verbal altercation as he swept his yard in the company of a male friend. The men reportedly drove off but returned a short while after and opened fire at Johnson hitting him several times. He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Ninjaman, however, in an interview, told YardFlex that he knew nothing about the incident and vowed to clear his name. “Me not going prison fi dis one,” he said.

The Marl Road area is known to be one of the places frequented by the deejay.





hands4.jpgAustrian Josef Fritzl, who kept his daughter in a cellar and fathered her seven children, has been convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment.

Fritzl, 73, was found guilty of all charges against him, including rape, incest, murder and enslavement. The court ordered that Fritzl should serve his life sentence in a secure psychiatric facility.

Fritzl's lawyer, Rudolf Mayer, said outside the court after the verdict: "I would say that the verdict was a logical consequence of a confession. Of course if you have 3,000 cases of rape and 24 years of being kept in a cellar, it is evident that there can only be a punishment or verdict like this one."

The life sentence was handed down for the murder by neglect of one of the children, who died soon after birth.

The defendant first denied murder and enslavement but changed his plea to guilty after seeing testimony from his daughter. The verdict is final and irreversible, as neither the defence nor the prosecution is contesting it.

Fritzl, who will be kept under suicide watch, will be sent to a co-ordination centre, where it will be determined how dangerous he is, before going on to the psychiatric facility.

Fritzl's daughter could also bring a civil case against her father, adding that there was no limit to the damages she could request.
The Austrian imprisoned his daughter in a cellar under his house for 24 years and repeatedly raped her. The daughter and three of the children were kept captive in the cellar until the case came to light in April last year, when one of them became seriously ill and was taken to hospital.

The other three children were raised in the family home by Fritzl and his wife, after he told people that his daughter had abandoned them and joined a sect.

Break Through
yardflex.DW.jpgI accomplish my goals with strength and enthusiasm.

All the abundance of a new season of growth may not be evident just yet; in time, however, it will be.

Likewise, the results of all the time and energy I have put toward a goal may not be evident yet, but I remain positively, productively focused on it. Energized by the presence of God within me, I have the strength needed to complete what I have set my mind on completing.

There is always the potential for accomplishment within me. Just as surely as the season of new life unfolds, so, too, does my potential to break through any barriers to an accomplishment. My goals then become realities, revealing the results of my divinely inspired work.

"The earth produces of itself, first the stalk, then the head, then the full grain in the head. But when the grain is ripe, at once he goes in with his sickle, because the harvest has come."--Mark 4:28-29

chris-brown-and-rihanna.jpgThe rumour mills are at it and again and this time it’s news surrounding Rihanna and Chris Brown that they made an explosive sex tape.

According to gossip web site mediatakeout.com which quoted from their source the Star Magazine.

The pop princess worries that other shocking images could go public – wild sex tapes of her with her abusive boyfriend Chris Brown.

“Rihanna has no issues with her sexuality … She can be really out there. But she’d be mortified if her friends and family found this out.”
Other comments given on the site were: “Chris and Rihanna enjoy an aggressive love life that would shock many people … Rihanna loves dressing up – including as a dominatrix – and role playing. They both have kinky sides.”

Rihanna isn’t always the little goody-two-shoes everyone thinks she is, and Chris doesn’t want or need another scandal.”

Well for their sakes yardflex hopes this just remain a rumour as we think they have both had enough.





Mary J. Blige planning gospel album

maryjblige.jpgIn a recent interview with BellaOnline, secular singer Mary J Blige has declared that she too will be making a gospel album, sooner rather than later.

We all know that Blige is not a Christian but you could say she is definitely a work in progress.

She has been known as one to always connect with God through her music, as in few of her songs she gives him thanks and acknowledges God's presence in her life. Songs such as 'Testimony', "Work In Progress (Growing Pains)," and "Work That," to name a few.

We at YardFlex anticipate the production and release of this album, and hope to see other artistes both locally and internationally following in her footstep.

let go let god.jpgSomething good is happening, and I accept it now.
My Spirit-inspired patience allows for the unfoldment of the highest good. I am not just waiting for something good to happen. I know something good is happening, and I am ready to accept it.
Another way to describe my patience is that I am letting go of all worry and concern and letting God express wisdom through me. With this combination of releasing the negative and accepting the good, I recognize the best options or considerations.
As I let go and let God, I don't react to a situation; I respond from Spirit within. Relaxed and at ease, I go about doing what is mine to do. I allow space for others to do what is theirs to do. This leaves the way clear for a divine solution.
"Be patient, therefore, beloved, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious crop from the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains."--James 5:7

ninjahappeninegs.jpgPopular deejay and founder of the One Umbrella Movement, Desmond Ballentine, aka Nnjaman, who is wanted by the police for questioning in regard to the murder of a man known as Ricky Trooper, told Yardflex that he knows nothing about the killing.

Ninjaman is currently listed as a person of interest in the murder which reportedly took place in the Marl Road area of Kingston 11 on Tuesday.

According to the Constabulary Communication Network, about 11:15 am, Johnson, otherwise called ‘Ricky Trooper’ — not the selector — was sweeping his yard in the company of a friend when a grey motor car with three men aboard drove up. An argument reportedly developed between one of the men and Johnson’s friend and the car drove off. The vehicle later returned and the occupants opened fire, hitting Johnson. He died at the Kingston Public Hospital.

Ninjaman told Yardflex that he has contacted his lawyer, Norma Linton and they will be going in to the police sometime today (Wednesday).
“Right now a no time fi walk and shoot people. Me don’t know nothing about it. Me don’t even know who dem say dead,” he declared

Rasta-Girl-Posters.jpgCan you believe it last month we celebrated yet another Black History Month where movies showing how blacks fought and paved the way for us to enjoy true freedom. Everything that’s black was lauded, men whose inventions completely revolutionized the world. We were reminded of all the reasons why it’s wonderful to be black and then a simple walk on the street brings home the brutal reality that all these wonderful things are lost on a lot of folks.

They are all around you their faces with its unnatural hue, staring at you as they wash the windshields of your car.

A trek into the dancehall is a contradiction as some of them takes pride in their fancy footwork, but is ashamed of the colour of their skin.

In the broad sunlight they walk around with their faces covered as their skins cannot take the harsh light of the sun.

What is it about this phenomenon that allows a race that should be bursting with pride to be slow destroying themselves with the bleaching crème?


The more things change the more they remain the same, that’s all I can say. Courageous men and women died that we could be free but yet they are in the greatest bondage of all – that of the mind. They refuse to see their colour as something of worth, but instead look back and admire the lighter colour, thinking it’s something to aspire to.

Just what will it take for black people to realise and live the words of Marcus Mosiah Garvey, “up ye mighty race, you can accomplish what you will?”

What’s need a revolution of the minds where Black people will start looking into the mirrors and really seeing themselves for the beautiful creatures they are…then and only then will we be able to get rid of the need to bleach and disfigure our faces just so we can appear lighter. It’s time to truly start loving yourselves and if anyone have a problem with your skin…tough luck…hold your head up high and through away the crème…black, is after all beautiful, isn’t it?

Mr. Benjamin reportedly agreed to take her on his motorcycle for a fee.

But instead the entertainer allegedly took her to another area where he attempted to steal her handbag.

His efforts resulted in him only leaving with her cellular phone.

The police, who were in the area, apprehended and charged Mr. Benjamin with robbery.

Shocking Vibes CEO Patrick Roberts wanted

PRoberts.jpgHead of Shocking Vibes Entertainment, Patrick Roberts is a wanted man. A warrant was on Monday issued for his arrest after he failed to appear in court to answer to tax evasion charges.

A businessman, music producer, and unsuccessful People's National Party candidate, Roberts was scheduled to appear before the Tax Court to answer to charges that he owes the government millions of dollars in unpaid taxes.

However, when his name was called in court he did not appear and, as a result, the judge ordered a warrant for his arrest.

In his capacity as CEO of Shocking Vibes Roberts was responsible for the career of top flight deejay, Moses ‘Beenie Man’ Davis, who was himself involved in a tax evasion drama last year. The court charged that Beenie Man owed the government some $48-million in taxes.

The charges against the former Shocking Vibes deejay were subsequently dismissed, on the grounds that the notice of assessment was flawed.

Roberts last year stood the surety for politician Kern Spencer, who is charged in the Cuban light-bulb scandal.





Spring Break brought out the massive

spice!.jpgThe Long Bay Beach in Negril was abuzz with fever pitch excitement as the massive turned out for the Spring Break stage show.

It was a night which saw some great performances coming from the likes of I-Octane, Gyptian, Blonde Ras, Richie Spice and Bascombe X.

Beekie Bailey scored big points with his performance as he after lashed out at some of the top dancehall artistes such as Mavado, Vybz Kartel Monster Hemphire and Anthony B who he claims eat Lobster.

It was drama when Singer J took the stage, his constant movements seemed to irritate one of the cameramen and he himself at one point bounced the photographer out the way. It all climaxed with Singer J hitting the ground seemingly pushed by the cameraman. Things could have gotten out of hand, but thank heavens it didn’t.

Spice really got the crowd worked up as she performed Ramping Shop calling in two volunteers to take Vybz Kartel lot. She even took out a condom as she advocated for safe sex. Her performance was really steamy and the crowd just loved it.

When the gully god Mavado took centre stage it was pandemonium as the crowd went wild, for the singjay who is firmly perched “on the rock”. He went through his paces reeling out one hit after another.

Beenie Man was in his usual awesome form and could do no wrong for his hungry fans who ate up all that he had to offer and still wanted more.

CONF6Large.jpgAfter three hours of “intense deliberations” the jury in the Peter King trial found the accused, 25-year-old Sheldon Pusey, guilty of manslaughter in the death of former trade.

Ten of 12 jurors on Monday voted to convict Pusey on the lesser charge of manslaughter.
The other two jurors wanted to free Pusey, who sat motionless in the prisoners' dock at the Home Circuit Court while the verdict was being announced. He will be sentenced on April 1.
Following the adjournment, defence attorney Berriston 'Berry' Bryan told reporters that he will be appealing the verdict and “the prosecution has suppressed evidence critical to the defence."
This suppressed evidence is the prosecution's decision not to tender into evidence two knives that were taken from King's Waterloo Road, home a day after the March 2006 killing.

The prosecution had said during the trial that the knives were not relevant to the case, as no blood or prints belonging to King or the accused were found on them.

Pusey, a resident of Gordon Town in St Andrew, had been on trial since January 19 for the murder of the 64-year-old King, whose nude, mutilated body was found in his bedroom covered by a comforter. King's body had a total of 30 wounds, including four stabs and four chops.





A music free Jamaica

Rasta-Girl-Posters.jpgI’m dreaming of a new Jamaica where people can live in love and harmony. Where we can once again enjoy the simple things in life and kick back to some great music…whether on or off the bus!

Sad to say maybe that’s all I will be able to do …dream. If the government has its way then listening to music on the bus and being entertained on a long journey by watching a movie or taking in some music videos may be a thing of the past.

While the government moves to censor the music, I have no problem with that, but cutting off every avenue of entertainment … well that’s crossing the line.

Needless to say it’s not even safe to be driving in a vehicle that isn’t equipped with a radio. There are times when it will be necessary to listen to the radio to monitor the news especially in times of storms or maybe to find out if there unrest and areas to avoid.

This leaves the big question is Broadcast Commission cleaning up the music or eliminating all forms of music altogether?

If we sit back and allow this to happen then what else will be taken from us? Just think about it and make your voices be heard now.

Another Malawi child adoption by Madonna?

madonna300.jpgDespite the controversy surrounding Madonna’s earlier adoption of a Malawi child from the poor South African region she has indicated that she is willing to do it again.

Critics accused the government of skirting laws that ban non-residents from adopting children in Malawi, which has been badly hit by the AIDS epidemic, after Madonna took on David Banda.

"Many people -- especially our Malawian friends -- say that David should have a Malawian brother or sister," she said in response to emailed questions from Malawi's the Nation newspaper.

"It's something I have been considering, but would only do, if I had the support of the Malawian people and the Government."

A Malawian court approved the adoption of David last year.

Madonna has said the controversy had been difficult to deal with but she was happy to be involved in a case that might pave the way for more adoptions in Malawi. An estimated one million children in the country have been orphaned by AIDS.

Madonna, who began adoption proceedings in 2006, took David when he was 13-months-old after his father had placed him in an orphanage following the death of his wife.

David is growing up in the high-flying life of a leading popstar, worlds away from his village of Lipunga, where Banda's relatives eat staple food like maize meal from simple bowls and meals are cooked on open fires.

I release the gladness of my soul into the environment.
It's been said that, on average, children laugh up to 300 times a day while adults laugh only 15 times a day. In reality, however, there is no age limitation on laughter.
eqwe.jpgIf I want to feel younger and look younger, then it's only natural that part of my daily routine is to laugh more. Laughing gives the muscles of my face, chest, and abdomen a workout. A hearty laugh stimulates my heart rate, causes me to breathe deeply, and releases happiness hormones, my endorphins.
Laughter is one of the ways I express my gratitude to God. As I laugh, I release the gladness of my soul into the environment--creating something that's good for me and good for all those around me.
"Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then it was said among the nations, 'The Lord has done great things for them.' "--Psalm 126:2

usain-bolt-m.jpgCould this be true…if it is then the Premier League has just gotten more interesting. Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly set to meet up with the fastest man on the planet, Usain Bolt, in a bid to become even faster.

As if it isn’t already a strugle to keep up with the Portuguese pace and skill on the field, this meet will create even more problems for his challengers.

According to the Independent on Sunday, Bolt is a huge Ronaldo fan and will meet up with the player in the summer with a view to improving his sprinting.

The 22-year-old Jamaican will be in Europe for the World Championships, which take place in Berlin in August, and will take time out to give Ronaldo some pointers.

His manager, Ricky Simms, confirmed that the meeting between the two superstars will take place.

“It’s definitely going to happen,” said the Irishman. “We’ll sort something out this summer when Usain comes to Europe.”

The Jamaican stunned the world last summer at the Beijing Olympics when he won three gold medals, in the 100 metres, 200 metres and 4 x 100 metres relay, smashing all three world records in the process.

The Independent on Sunday reports that Bolt is a huge football fan and that the proposed meeting between the two came about when he asked Ronaldo for a signed shirt for his collection.

The Man United winger was apparently happy to comply with the request, in return for sprinting lessons from the world’s fastest man.

20090313.jpgGiving expression to the love of God within me, I bless my heart.
As strong and reliable as my heart is, my feelings have an incredible impact on it. So I know not to hold stressful thoughts or feelings in my mind and heart.
My heart is a physical expression of my consciousness. When I feel positive emotions as I share a tender moment with someone or I am alone in serene meditation, this precious organ is calm. It relates with mind and body in healthy, renewing ways.
My love and intuition are heart-connected. And so I practice loving, positive thinking and acting. I forgive others, and I also forgive myself. I give expression to the love of God within me.
With each thought and action, I bless my heart and, at the same time, I am also blessing others in a heartfelt way.
"The Lord does not see as mortals see; they look on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart."--1 Samuel 16:7

What’s with the killing in the dancehall

Webmin

By Rootzgirl
Rasta-Girl-Posters.jpgThere is a saying that my grandmother used to repeat and it’s what you sow you will reap. Why are we amazed at the various murders now taking place in the dancehall?” Why the sense of outrage when a boat event turns out to be deadly or shootings are taking place at club events and at the dances? It should be drawing any shocked gasps from us.

We are the ones who have embraced the gun lyrics in the dances which glorifies the act of killing people as if they are not worth much. One DJ even bragged about his prowess implying he’s bold enough to kill man in broad daylight, while another describe the gory details of marrow spilling.

I could go on and on name a lot more songs that makes the act of taking a life seem like nothing, so when these songs help to feed the appetite of the perpetrators don’t complain.

That’s why I have to big up Bounty Killer who recognized the importance of effect songs and artistes have on their fans when he went on stage and said, “mi nuh want nuh more people fi dead!”
Yes that’s the stance artistes should now be taking realizing the responsibility they have and they power they have over listeners. I am not saying that they are the ones urging them to pull the trigger, but if they do songs that are more conscious then it could help bring about a change.

Just go into a hardcore dance and you can feel the tenseness, but on the other hand go to an oldies jam or some singers session and feel the lightness in the air, the sense of enjoyment.
The dance has become a scary place to be and that’s sad. People are now thinking twice before they leave their homes. It’s time to reclaim what was once our pride and joy…cut the almshouse out of it and let’s get back to some real jamming!

Beenie get a life…if you gwaan yap like woman yuh soon lose respect fi yuh.

Beenie Man also took potshots at Barbee calling her ‘crazy’. He also admitted that he had dated the Junoesque singer, one of Beenie's first public admissions of their failed relationship that had the media world in a tizzy for well over a year.

“Barbee wanted a Chris Brown-Rihanna thing, and I couldn’t deal with that,” he said, seemingly making a reference to the toxic nature of their past relationship where they reportedly had many loud arguments.

When contacted about Beenie’s disparaging comments, Barbee who was overseas on a business trip, said she “had nothing negative to say about Beenie’.

“I am just promoting Barbee right now,” the statuesque singer who scored a hit with the reggae-flavoured ‘Love You Anyway’ this year.

EHJ_Beverly_Hall_web.jpgDr Beverly Hall, who is Public Schools Superintendent for Atlanta, has been named National Superintendent of the Year by the American Association of School Administrators (AASA).

The Jamaican born Dr. Hall, who is a former student of the St. Andrew High School for Girls, said she was honoured and humbled by the honour, as this was a great achievement for her as a member of a minority group. "Education is my passion and when you have a goal and work hard and others buy into your goal, the rewards can be fulfilling," she stated.

The recognition, which came with a US$10,000 cash prize, is the highest professional honour for an urban educator and K-12 school administrator in the United States.

The announcement, which was made at the AASA's National Conference on Education in San Francisco last weekend, capped a year of high-level honours for Dr. Hall, who was named Georgia Superintendent of the Year in December by the Georgia School Superintendents Association, and one of the 100 most influential Georgians by Georgia Trend magazine.

A new me has emerged.
cocreator.jpgWatching accomplished athletes execute their skills with perfection, I may consider their performances to be easy and effortless. I know, though, that they have dedicated years of practice toward honing their skills.
There is truth in the adage "practice makes perfect." My spiritual practices of prayer and meditation, faith and trust are more than skills. They are a way of life, a way of living in awareness of who I am and what I can accomplish as a cocreator with God.
With a dedication of my time and understanding, my heart and soul to God, I am spiritually enriched. I am renewed in spirit, mind, and body, and my life is a reflection of the new me that has emerged.
"You have stripped off the old self with its practices and have clothed yourselves with the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge according to the image of its creator."--Colossians 3:9-10

Caltariba system - Etana

Verse One
There is a little place in Africa
Where all the children died of aids
And there is a little place called Jamaica
Children loose their lives in first grade
And there is a little place in Asia
Children loose their lives to bombs and grenade
And there is a little place called America
Children are growing up being afraid
Caught up in the system

Chorus (x2)
Don't wanna be caught up
Don’t wanna be caught up in deh oh oh in deh
Don’t wanna be caught up don't wanna be caught up
In deh oh oh in deh.

Verse Two
Were are living in a crazy lazy word
Most people fight for power not peace
And we are living in a crazy lazy world
Only Jah can save us from the belly of the beast
Caught up in the system
Don’t wanna be a victim

Chorus (x2)
Don't wanna be caught up
Don’t wanna be caught up in deh oh oh in deh
Don’t wanna be caught up don't wanna be caught up
In deh oh oh in deh.

Verse Three
Say there is no more chains
Round their feet or round their necks
But the trick is it’s all in the brain
Fighting everyday that's the price you have to pay
For the birth right that you gave away. Gave away.

refresh.jpgI am spiritually refreshed and vibrantly alive!
Today I may feel a desire for a fresh outlook on life: to adopt new, healthful habits or rekindle a relationship.
Renewal can take place in ways that hold the prospect of greater strength and vibrance. As I commit to seeing someone or something in a new way--honoring myself by doing whatever nurtures my mind and body or sharing time with a special someone--I am replenished in mind, body, and soul.
There is also a deeper, more significant form of being refreshed. My spiritual rejuvenation is a celebration of God's presence within me. I find moments to pray alone and with others. I honor my worth. I meditate in a peaceful silence or while listening to music or the sounds of nature.
Spiritually refreshed, I am vibrantly alive!
"Yes, brother, let me have this benefit from you in the Lord! Refresh my heart in Christ."--Philemon 1:20

Prison+cell_897_18163112_0_0_2148_300.jpgA prison warder of the St Catherine Adult Correctional Centre, Khayron Vassell was sentenced to 12 months hard labour by Senior Resident Magistrate Lorna Errar when the he appeared in the Spanish Town RM Court Friday.
The RM gave Vassell a proper scolding after he pleaded guilty, he chided him for contributing to corruption instead of helping his colleagues to get rid of it.
The court heard that in early January Vassel's superior observed he had an unusual bulge in his cap. He was searched and a quantity of ganja and money found in his possession. The police were subsequently called. He was charged by Detective Corporal Debbie Bailey of the Spanish Town Police Station.





The healing powers of marijuana

marijuana-leaf.jpgResearch is proving more and more medicinal uses of marijuana (Cannabis Sativa), the latest comes from the Journal of Natural Products which recently published a paper outlining the newly isolated antibiotic effects of the class of molecules known as cannabanoids. This group includes the non-psychoactive cannabichromene, cannabigerol, and cannabidiol but also includes the well-known and definitely psychotropic tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)."

To break down all the medical mumbo jumbo the bottom line is that marijuana has a lot of medicinal properties to it and has been known to get rid of a lot of ‘superbugs’.
And to think that the FDA determined that this plant has no medical use or value.

Users of marijuana are standing by the plant, as they have had neither the flu nor any contagious disease.
Yardflex would love your feedback…has it proven to be a great medication for you?

pros.jpgI live in an abundant world and trust God to reveal my good to me.
Faced with an economic challenge such as a job loss or an unexpected financial need, I waste no time with thoughts of lack. I move right into God's creative flow of abundance so that I move forward in realizing my full potential.
Because I am a receptive channel for God's abundance, I draw my good to me. In unlimited ways, I use my inner resources of divine ideas and infinite intelligence. These resources support me as I move through the decisions and actions that lie ahead.
The present situation is ripe with opportunities. I am ready to accomplish great things and to realize the prosperity that is always available to me. The kingdom of God is my absolute reality, right here and now.
"The kingdom of God is not coming with things that can be observed; nor will they say, 'Look, here it is!' or 'There it is!' For, in fact, the kingdom of God is among you."--Luke 17:20-21

What’s happening with our kids?

Webmin
10 Comments

By Rootsgirl

Rasta-Girl-silhouette_2.jpgThe other day I was reading a report in an evening paper and I have to say that my stomach turned at some of the things the article was saying. Can you believe it that 10 students made plans, went to an abandoned building with porno magazine, condom and a well laid out plan to have sex.

That’s not the shocking part, the part about it that gets to me is that while the society bicker about crude songs like ramping shop with the act of sex so graphically described (I see no difference between it and a porno magazine or movie) kids can lay their hands on these kinds of materials on the internet, books, cable TV and even from other friends.

Their curiousity piked, and there is no one to explain stuff to them. The sad part is that the parents themselves might even be leaving those kinds of materials around for their kids to find.

While the country gets outraged at what they think are some really rude kids who are too advanced for their age, the slackness continues with parents even encouraging their kids to participate in daggering activities and finding it amusing when little boys take on the challenge of ‘wining’ up on a big woman.

Kids are left on their own to watch uncensored cable channels while parents are too busy doing other stuff. They buy them the best ipods and leave the playlists all up to them…not even once taking a quick listen to just to see what they are up to.





m_92cc9e18046e4cb799e7b68d854c62d8.jpgInspector Cassius Lennox of the Area One Police must have thought what he was seeing was something out of a story book when he went to check out a rumour and happened upon more than what he bargained for.

10 kids none older than 10 planned a sex rendezvous at an abandoned building. But their plans went awry when an adult discovered what they were up to and called the police.

The boys had condoms and on the scene also were porno magazines. The kids seeing they were busted made a mad dash for their clothes.

The kids apparently were planning this secret tryst for days…thanks to quick intervention it never happened.

The kids parents are urged to get counseling for them.





Jackson comeback leaves unanswered questions

eng_jackson_BM_Verm_706984g.jpgMichael Jackson’s short appearance in London on Thursday at the 02 Arena where he has a series of 10 concerts lined to begin on July 8 has left a lot of questions in the eyes of those who saw him.

According to reports circulating in the media the 50-year-old king of pop showed up looking a little fatter than they have seen him in recent photographs.

But that wasn’t the shocker, his announcement that the London shows will be his final performances there and he will be singing the songs his fans want to hear.

Jackson was quoted as saying “This is it, this is really it, this is the final curtain call."

According to the report Randy Phillips, president of AEG Live which signed Jackson for the concerts, had few concrete answers.

He did not rule out more concerts in London and elsewhere in the future, and much more than just music appears to be riding on the summer shows.

"None of us are sure," he was quoted as saying to Reuters. "I didn't want to get so far ahead of what he wanted to do.

"We're holding dates," he added, referring to the O2 Arena where Prince performed 21 nights in 2007 to critical acclaim. "We don't know how big the demand will be."

On Jackson's health, Phillips was more confident, saying the performer, who has looked frail and gaunt in recent months, had passed a lengthy physical examination.

And asked if Jackson would sing or lipsynch on his eagerly awaited return, he replied: "He's singing."

THREE YEAR DEAL

AEG Live have a plan to work with Jackson for the next three and a half years that involves concerts, new music and movies, including a big-screen adaptation of Jackson's seminal hit and video "Thriller."

The agreement could earn Jackson "well over $400 million," Phillips said, although that would depend on all of the ventures discussed being carried out.

"After announcing that the concerts will be in July, and that he loves us all so, Jackson is gone -- giving four minutes to people who have been waiting five hours, and 12 years, and a lifetime," wrote Caitlin Moran in The Times newspaper.

Fans believe Jackson, a virtual recluse since his acquittal in 2005 of child abuse charges, is wise to choose London for his comeback rather than, say, Las Vegas.

"I think the Europeans are not as judgmental as the Americans, there is a solid fan base here and we're into 1980s disco and soul, perhaps more than the U.S. where rap and hip-hop dominate," said Lucy Wood, an artist in her late 30s.

I give generously from my heart.
give.jpgThe good I do for others makes a difference in their lives. I contribute my energies in ways that benefit people--some known and others unknown to me. By being helpful, I honor the Christ within me and within them.
When I give of myself, I am expressing consideration and generosity. Some ways I serve in my family and the organizations I belong to are traditional. Shared relationships and beliefs are honored as family, spiritual, and cultural practices are celebrated.
I also reflect on additional innovative ways to make a positive difference in the lives of others. I am blessed each time I give generously from my heart.

Chris Brown battered Rihanna

0219_rihanna_photo_beating_ex_01.jpgIt seems as if the trial regarding Chris Brown’s assault on Caribbean queen Rihanna will reveal a lot of stuff. Already surfacing is the way how he went berserk on poor Rihanna after she read a text message he received from a girl.

Deteails revealed in court from Detective De Shon Andrew notes gave more insight into what really happened.

According to him, blood filled Rihanna’s mouth. Brown, 19, allegedly told her, “I’m going to beat the s— out of you when we get home. You wait and see!” Rihanna called her assistant and left a message saying, “I am on my way home. Make sure the cops are there when I get there.” The police notes say that prompted Brown to reply: “You just did the stupidest thing ever. Now I’m really going to kill you.”

The report also says that Brown bit Rihanna and put her in a headlock, and that she almost lost consciousness.

“Brown resumed punching [Rihanna] and she interlocked her fingers behind her head and brought her elbows forward to protect her face,” according to the notes. “She then bent over at the waist, placing her elbows and face near her lap in attempt to protect her face and head from the barrage of punches being levied upon her by Brown.”

Chris Brown who is facing a felony charge could find himself doing up to four years if he is found guilty.





BATTLE OF THE LEGENDS CLASH.jpgNew York is set to be ablaze when four legends in the sound system industry take center stage at Amazura on Good Friday, April 10 for a clash that many are anticipating will be one for the books. For the first time ever, pioneer sound men David Rodigan, Down Beat, King Jammy’s and Black Scorpio are set to compete on one stage at “Battle of the Legends” before thousands of fans.

The sound clash industry is chock-full of rivalries. Two of the most notorious, which have been brewing for decades, include that of David Rodigan/Down Beat and King Jammy’s/Black Scorpio. Irish and Chin have now created the opportunity for them to ‘settle the score’ once and for all. It will all unfold at “Battle of the Legends” which is the first of such clash line-ups that promoter has in store in the near future.


The idea of having these greats clash and inevitably nurture their younger counterparts emerged after David Rodigan, Down Beat, King Jammy’s and Black Scorpio were honored for their accomplishments at Death Before Dishonor 8 in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Their striking performance at the event and strong crowd reception were tell-tale indicators that a clash was a must.

“I think that these sounds embody the competitive, yet good sportsmanship of the sound clash golden era,” says Garfield “Chin” Bourne. “This clash will afford young clash fans with a blueprint of a genuine sound clash....moreover, it will show them how an intense clash can go down without excessive cussing and disrespect."

Trusting in divine guidance, I accept unlimited options and opportunities.

Life holds countless opportunities for me. Whatever the situation may be, there is always another means, another blessing available to me. Even if I feel I am going in circles, with closer examination, I find I am making progress, spiraling upward. Trusting in divine guidance, I am open to the array of blessings revealed to me.

There is always another method--to learn, remember, try, or apply. There is always another place--to work, live, play, or find support. There is always another friend--to contact, share with, or meet anew. There is always another work--to accomplish, contribute to, or receive from. My options and alternatives are limitless. In renewed awareness, I affirm: There is always another way.

"Then the sentinel saw another man running; and the sentinel called to the gatekeeper and said, 'See, another man running alone!' The king said, 'He also is bringing tidings.' "--2 Samuel 18:26

We even watched the Oprah show as they discussed the relationship, the abuse and the conclusion was that it would be a bad signal of Rihanna went back to Chris.

The another set of rumours started, that Rihanna has patched things up with Chris and they are now back together. The latest rumour takes the cake though.

According to gossip web site www.therundown.tv Chris Brown and Rihanna tied the knot in Miami last weekend when he stopped by Diddy’s mansion, this from their named source Star Magazine. Below is the story as posted on their website.

“To the shock of many, Rihanna reunited with Chris Brown over the weekend — but they did more than that! The couple had a tearful face-to-face meeting at Diddy’s $14.5 million Miami mansion, during which an emotional Chris apologized, begged for forgiveness and proposed to her on the spot.

AIDONIA_EUROPE_09_edit.jpgDancehall artiste Sheldon ‘Aidonia’ Lawrence current single ‘Hundred Stab’ on the Sky Daggering riddim by Equinoxx Productions is creating a lot of noise on the scene for him. The talented DJ is presently touring Europe for a series of performances across the major cities.

With an agenda to please his fans in that part of the world, Aidonia is extensively touring the continent for the next three weeks with scheduled stops in hot spots such as Padova and Milano in Italy, Copenhagen in Denmark, Toulouse in France, Berlin and Mannheim in Germany amongst others. The first major and even more noteworthy, the first headline tour for Aidonia, he also welcomes French sound system ‘Soul Stereo’ along for the journey.

One of the most famous and respected European sound systems, Soul Stereo is the region’s leading authority in Jamaican music and tour extensively across the world delivering their unique sound. The French based selectors have worked with some of the industry’s premier talents including Black Uhuru, Mykal Rose, Capleton, Natasja Scrul among others and with Aidonia now in Europe, it was only natural that the two would cross paths says Soul Stereo foundation member Rico, “We respect his music and the energy that he brings to the stage. We are very happy to be a part of this tour with him” he says.

Inner Peace

dw_bird.jpgI breathe into this moment of tranquility and experience the peace of God.

On the wall inside the Unity Peace Chapel are the words that Jesus spoke to quiet a storm at sea: "Peace, Be Still." These three powerful words are a reminder for me to claim the peace that is within me.

In prayer, I breathe into a precious time of tranquility and experience the peace of God within every fiber of my being. My awareness of God's gentle, loving presence assures me that all is calm. Within my heart and soul, whatever the time or circumstances of my experience, God is present.

In times of both quiet and activity, I speak the words "Peace! Be still!" Connecting with the truth of this statement, I am at peace.
"He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, 'Peace! Be still!' Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm.... And they were filled with great awe and said to one another, 'Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?' "--Mark 4:39, 41





The music is bigger than us all

Rasta-Girl-silhouette_2.jpgNo questions asked, music has evolved. Days gone by there were some songs that could not be played, songs that we now consider tame by today's standards. Now we are in this generation and the debate is raging surrounding the explicit song Ramping Shop. Upon listening to it I must say it was a very cleverly written song, at the same time I felt some measure of sadness. Here are two talent people who could describe the bedroom activity so creatively and they had to spoil it with the expletives and graphic lyrics.

Looking back I remember another song that beautiful described making love and till this day it remains a favourite of mine.

The song is A1 Lover done by Spragga Benz. A part of the lyrics goes "climb the twin peak to the chocolate top..." now we don’t need a lot of guesses to figure out he is talking about breast nipples. But the song is so tasteful there really is nothing to be offended about. Now I am no prude, but please there is a limit to what we can get away with in the name of music.

joke_095.jpgThis mad dread locks man named kiddy liked my mother and when ever he sees her she would run and hide.

one day my mom was on the verandah with my sister and she spotted kiddy coming into the yard and ran into my gran aunts room to hide.

kiddy came upon the veradah calling my mom and saying he had seen her so she can come out.

now my gran aunt a big time coward took brave heart and went out to tell kiddy that my mom is not there and who he saw was two country girls who came to visit.

my aunt was fearful and wanted to get away
so she lied and told kiddy that she's not feeling too well.
so kiddy said he would pray for her... he then put his hand on her head and started praying.

while he's praying all of a sudden kiddy shouted and said "RISE!!!!! my gran aunt with no hesitation jump up quick to his order. so mom asked her why she jump so quickly.... she said because she heard that he was praying for a woman the week before and he told her to rise and she did not and he gave the woman a lick in ar head.

20090303.jpgThe love of God heals, protects, and blesses me.
The power of divine love is never restricted by time, space, or circumstance. Knowing no bounds or limitations, love blesses all with goodness and beauty.
Even when I'm feeling vulnerable or fearful, when I'm unsure of my finances or my security, God's powerful light and love break through. Divine love graces me with its sweet, tender presence.
The love of God heals, protects, and blesses me. It comes to me in a flash of insight when I am in need of guidance. Walking in nature or sitting quietly in prayer, I feel love permeate my being.
Being God's love in expression, I am expressing my gratitude for the love of God for me and within me.
"We have known and believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and those who abide in love abide in God, and God abides in them."--1 John 4:16

Snoop Dogg joins Nation of Islam

snoop-dogg-121008.jpgSnoop Dogg has revealed he has joined the Nation of Islam after appearing at the religious group's annual Saviours' Day event in Chicago.

The rapper, who described himself as the "leader of the hip-hop community", told followers he would share what he learned with other musicians.

He told reporters that he joined the group because he was "doing what's right and representing what's right".

It preaches self-reliance for black people within an Islamic framework.

At Sunday's event, the rapper sat on stage while Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan gave a speech.

He said afterwards that listening to the speech from Mr Farrakhan was "about a mirror - it's about looking at yourself".

He added: "We're doing a lot of wrongs among ourselves that need correcting."

When asked if he had joined the movement he said: "I'm already in the Nation, that's why I'm here.

"I'm an advocate for peace, I've been in the peace movement ever since I've been making music.

"My whole thing is not about really trying to push my thing on you.

"It's just about the way I live, and I live how I'm supposed to live as far as doing what's right and representing what's right - that's why I was here today."

He would not say when he had joined the Nation of Islam.

Other rappers previously involved with the movement include NWA star-turned-actor Ice Cube.





Event Info Card2.jpgFollowing an impressive debut last year of the Reggae Symphony, at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts (BCPA), three reggae icons will again grace the stage of the Center for a second performance to be held on Sunday, March 29.

The premiere performance "Reggae Symphony 2009" will feature reggae ambassador Freddie McGregor, reggae songstress Marcia Griffiths, and veteran singer and songwriter, Bob Andy. Saxophonist Dean Fraser will also make a guest appearance.

The three artists who have made international stage names individually, will be accompanied by Lloyd Parkes' We the People Band, and the Reggae Strings Orchestra as they perform from an extensive repertoire of recordings.

All three performers have been awarded the Commander of Distinction by the Government of Jamaica for their achievements, and contributions to the development of the island's musical heritage.

Reggae Symphony was introduced to the Broward Center following an alliance forged with the Consulate General of Jamaica, resulting in a range of successful performances, including the National Dance Theatre Company of Jamaica, Dem Three Jamaican Tenors, and Jamaica Farewell. The Broward Center also housed the annual Reggae Soca Awards, produced by veteran South Florida media personality, Winsome Charlton of Hi Class Promotions.

Pregnant_belly_button.jpgA NINE-year-old girl pregnant after years of alleged sexual abuse by her stepfather is likely to abort twins she is carrying in a case that has shocked Brazil, reports in Sao Paulo said.

The Brazilian girl, who was not identified because she is a minor, was found to be four months pregnant after being taken to hospital suffering stomach pains, the news websites G1, pe360graus and the Diario de Pernambuco reported.

She was being cared for by a medical and psychological team in the Maternal-Child Institude in the northern city of Recife, close to her hometown of Alagoinha in Pernambuco state, they said.

"We don't know if she will develop the pregnancy up to the end because of the structure of her body. It is a big risk for her,'' the doctor who confirmed her pregnancy before she was taken to the institute, Jose Severiano Cavalcanti, told the Diario de Pernambuco.

"She doesn't have a pelvis able to support a gestation of twins,'' he said.





Human trafficking still a problem - US report

human-wrists1.jpgDespite attempts by local authorities, human trafficking remains a major problem for Jamaica, according to a recent human-rights report published by the United States (US) Department of State.

The report states that regardless of the fact that laws in Jamaica prohibit all forms of trafficking, persons are very often transferred to, from, through and within the country.

The conclusions of the US 2009 report on the incidents of human trafficking in Jamaica are quite similar to its 2008 review.

According to the US State Department, most of the victims were poor women and girls, but also increasingly boys, who were trafficked from rural to urban and tourist areas for commercial exploitation.

Minors were involved

"Women were reportedly trafficked from the Dominican Republic, Russia and Eastern Europe, while some women and girls were trafficked to Canada, the US, The Bahamas and other Caribbean destinations," the report, which was released last week, further stated. "Children trafficked within the country may also be subject to domestic servitude and forced labour."

bk we go hard.jpgI am life, love, and creativity in full expression!
Am I feeling there is so much more I can do in life or desire to do with my life? That feeling may be an inner prompting that reminds me I have a great work to do, great gifts to give, and a great life to live.
Because I am a creation of God, there is a purpose for me. As I let more of my Christ nature be expressed in all that I think, do, and say, I am being life, love, and creativity in full expression. My life is then so much more about my spiritual fulfillment than simply about my productivity.

The more I give from my spiritual nature, the more I find I have to give. In prayer, I receive fresh inspiration and recharge my spiritual energy. "Prayed up," I have the incentive to explore ways I can give back to life as much as I receive from life.
Life is great because it is a gift from God!

"I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly."--John 10:10

Kirk Headley reportedly found dead

Kirk Headley.jpg31-year-old International model Kirk Headley was reportedly found dead at the upscale Paddington Terrace residence of his parents in Kingston, Jamaica. According to a report in the The Jamaica Observer Kirk’s body was found hanging outside the house early Thursday morning and the police suspect suicide.

The tragic discovery was made shortly after Headley had returned home from the Norman Manley airport where he had dropped off his parents to catch an early flight to Mexico via Miami. Kirk’s parents, Lindy and Carmen Headley are now on their way back to Jamaica after learning of the horrible loss.

Kirk is the grandson of the celebrated former West Indies cricketer George Headley. Kirk is a graduate of University of Technology and he shot to international prominence in the mid 1990s when he was selected by the then fashion editor of Vibe Magazine Emile Wilbeken to do a multi page swim wear spread in the glossy monthly.

The shoot was considered a success and this opened up fashion opportunities for Kirk that included a residential stint in South Africa.

Last year, Kirk was featured in the music video The Love That a Woman Should Give to a Man shot for VP Records recording artist Althea Hewitt. The song is a Phyllis Dillon classic. Kirk was also featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show in the late 1990s, having been voted first runner up in the Sexiest Man In the Caribbean contest.

It appeared Kirk Headley suffered from a bipolar condition, and Jamaican police sources say he was depressed and receiving treatment for his illness.





Sample6.jpgHonestly, mi really amazed at how tings change, memba one time man and woman woulda get dem groove on di dancefloor, now if you notice di trend change real bad. A pure man a scramble fi di videolight if it mean sey dem all a haffi get di woman dem outa di way.

Fi real back inna di going to dances it was like a whole activity by itself, you woulda si hustlers, di jerk man, di peanut vendor, soup man you get di drift, the hottie hottie girl dem whey dress nuh puss boot and of course do beggar dem whey waan yuh “let off a ting”.

But it come een like some a di dancers dem teck ova all a di role dem whey dese people used to play. From deejays, to MC, host, promoters, hustlers, beggers, sellers you name it…and di wuss ting whey wi observe is dat di number one begger in dancehall a di make dancer dem.

In a homophobic country like Jamaica, me know people always go club fi see go-go dancers, so wid dem man yah a dance like dem a woman, it would be safe to say dat most of these dancers are male go-go(s).
Dem dancers yah a get out a hand, dem a fight wid each other fi video light, a war wid video man cause dem nah video dem and once di video go pon di woman dem, dem leave the venue.

As a promoter, me really a wonder if dem dancer yah no get thursty after all dem dancing. Is either dem pocket empty or them mean to themself. Me say di dancers rather by a (1) Magnum and (1) Redbull, share it wid bout 30 men or beg people a drink out a dem liquor and dats it fi di night.
Member dem come in a di dance dem free, nah buy not even a wata, so how dem expect dancehall fi survive?

Di dancers really a tek dancehall fi a circus, dem cum a di dance, sweat up demself, wah bounce people and step-up pon people shoes, not even say sorry and expect you fi smile.

Some a dem dance group need fi re-invent themself and come back wid a few females in the group. A couple-up time now.

Bwoy mi nuh waan spend di whole time bash dem still but a really hope we can get back di nice nice nice vibes whey wi did use to from di dancehall. A who did sing she “Mi waan back we wata pumpie, we cool and deadly, fi go dance wid we ladies…” Mi nuh haffi sey nutten more.

Did Rap Kill The Black Male Singer?

Webmin
5 Comments

By Pearl Jr.
rapmusic.gifHow many of you know who the best selling Black male singer in the world for 2008 was? I bet you'll never get this right, without a few clues. Well, he's 50 years old, considered washed up and too controversial to sell, plus the majority of his songs are more than 25 years old. It's Michael Jackson, who sold more than Usher, Chris Brown, Ne-yo, John Legend, and Seal. The King of Pop sold nearly as many records worldwide as the #1 best-selling artist in the US regardless of race, Lil Wayne, whose genre of hip hop lost nearly 19.8 percent in sales from the previous year. Michael Jackson's song catalog sold 2.9 million copies with Thriller 25 topping over 2.3 million by itself, plus Michael didn't even promote it and performed nowhere! Shocking isn't it! (Lil Wayne sold nearly 3 million)

Before the 1990's, it seemed one could find a million-selling Black male recording artist on other every corner, and, at least, 20 in every Black church. Today, it's becoming more and more difficult to ignore the facts that Black men are headed to the bottom of, yet, another statistical chart.

Music, the savior of the Black race, made bearable the horrors of slavery, soothed during Jim Crow racism, and bonded in segregation. This type of Black love and togetherness ushered in the perfectly pitched passion of singers like Smokey Robinson singing countertenor (a male soprano), Michael Jackson a solid tenor, David Ruffin a baritone, and Barry White, the maestro, bass singer. Even now writing this article, name after name of remarkable Black male singers come to mind like Nat King Cole, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Jackie Wilson, Marvin Gaye, Donnie Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Ronald Isley, Al Green, Teddy Pendergrass, Luther Vandross, Jeffrey Osborne, and singing groups like The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Spinners, Stylistics, Chi-lights, Jackson 5, Earth Wind and Fire, The Moments, The Manhattans, New Edition, and Boys II Men. The list goes on and on. But today, where are the Black male singers that made Black women buy every Right On Magazine and scream with excited hysteria whenever their favorite artists appeared?

In today's world of rap music, the last solid genre created in the Black community, seemed to have seduced too many Black men wishing for their spot on the top of music entertainment fame, to speak rhythmic poetry instead of singing the melodies of love and longing.

The irony is that while the loving lyrics of Motown dominated the Black airways for decades, Black love was in bloom, and so was the growth of the music industry. Now too many Black men in the game of hip hop slop are volunteering to label Black women bitches and hos, promote criminality, excessive spending (bling), and speak of love making as purely a one night stand have contributed to the widespread decline of Black love and progress. It's no coincidence that Black love is down at the same time Black music is at its lowest levels ethically and well as financially. This decline has little to do with the recession because these declines started to manifest 6 years ago, and ringtones along with 99 cent downloads just ain't paying the bills.

I am fulfilled--mind, body, and spirit.
Blimp.jpgI have probably made some, if not all, of these statements in the past: "Someday I will take a class just for the fun of it. One day I will go on a road trip, discovering my way along the way. Maybe tomorrow I'll take time to meet my new neighbor. I'm too busy now, but in the future I will be sure to make more time for family and friends."
Today I put all limiting thoughts of the past where they belong: in the past. I know that I can do more now. I understand that this is a prompting from the Christ of my being to live my life more fully. This is the perfect day to have fun, discover more beauty in nature, connect with neighbors, and spend quality time with my family and friends.
Christ within me is the master life coach, guiding me to and through the experiences that fulfill me in mind, body, and spirit.
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."--Hebrews 13:8

T.I. getting ready to serve is jail sentence
ti6.jpgAccording to international gossip website MediaTakeOut.com today is time to pay the piper. TI will be sentenced today and he's expected to do a little less than a year in prison. Here's how the Atlanta-Journal Constitution is putting it:

* According to the plea agreement, T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., will be sentenced to one year and a day.


* The extra day means T.I. can carve 15 percent off of his sentence with good behavior. Under U.S. Bureau of Prison rules, inmates can earn such credit only if they are sentenced to longer than a year in prison.


* T.I. should serve an estimated 298 days -- or a little less than 10 months. He is expected to get credit for the two weeks he sat in jail after his arrest and before posting a $3 million bond.

guidance_yardflex.jpgI am confident as I listen to and act upon divine guidance.
Certain familiar sounds alert me to what I'm to do next: The buzz of an alarm announces that it's time to begin my day. The sound of my ringtone signals me to answer an incoming call. I may receive instructions from a supervisor, teacher, or mentor. I am always open to the guidance that comes to me seemingly out of the blue.
Yet it is in the silence that I receive the most profound guidance. I rest quietly in a place that is peaceful and comfortable. I breathe, relax, and become attuned to the many types of direction heard in my life.
My faith in divine guidance expands and enhances my receptivity to it. Solutions and answers become crystal clear. With this time in reflective prayer, I build discernment and confidence. I am blessed as I move with readiness to positive action.
"And he said, 'Let anyone with ears to hear listen!' "--Mark 4:9

luciano_gunman_killed_house.jpgYardflex takes a closer look at the gunman that engaged the police in a shootout at cultural singer Luciano’s house.

• His aliases are ‘Shooty shooty’ and ‘Conqueror’
• He was a deadly fugitive on the run for two years...this according to the police
• He was most wanted for a series of gun-related crimes including murder, shooting with intent and theft of a policeman’s firearm
• According to the police he brutally slaughtered 65-year-old Gloria McLean at an open lot on Shortwoord Road, January 15 after she chided him for his uncouth behaviour towards a child.
• Also engaged the police in a shootout at Central Village February last year

Now with a rap sheet like that the only thing we want to know and we guess it will be some time before we find out...if ever, what the hell was he doing at Luciano’s residence...and what was the singer doing having him hanging around?

RJR_Comm_Group.JPG32 employees of the RJR Communications group received their pink slips yesterday – some through voluntary early retirement.

This is the latest move as more and more companies are feeling the pinch from the recession that is hitting the country real hard.
Among those that were let go are Michael Sharpe, Simon Crosskill, who is the group head of sports.

According to a report carried in the Jamaica Observer the media group said the separation agreement was reached after consultation with all stakeholders and was in response to the continued decline in the global advertising activity and increased costs.

“The company says it is moving the group to a model of greater out-sourcing of services aimed at reducing the size of its permanent structure as well as its recurring expenses,” the release said.

not beyonce and jay z wedding picture[3].jpgWell a lot of people were speculating on how long this Hollywood romance would last, would it survive the fickle world of entertainment or would the pressure of their demanding lives tell on them? That’s the big question regarding Beyonce and Jay-Z’s marriage.

Well according to gossip web site Mediatakeout.com, it could very well be falling apart at the seams.

The site claims that rumours are already surfacing of trouble in Jay-Z and Beyonce’s marriage. The site reported a while back that they were already spending nights apart even when they were both in New York. Now there’s fresh rumour that they’re spending night apart even when they’re in the same club!

According to the site one of their readers ran into the couple at the 40/40 Club in New York and the newlyweds were apart for the entire night! The snitch further reported that Beyonce seemed angry the entire night and didn’t socialize with anyone.

Wow...we hope these are just rumours...and these two will find a way to patch up their differences.

DW_key.jpgI experience absolute peace and reassurance in God's presence.
When it seemed as though something was missing in my life, I may have made a decision that I now wish I could cancel. Perhaps I was trying to fill an emptiness within me with something outside of me, and now I know that doesn't work.

What I had been searching for, what I had needed, what I had yearned for was with me from the very beginning. In God, I found myself. In God, I found my way.

Each day as I place my trust in God, I surrender any past or present hurt. Knowing I am always in God's loving presence, I experience absolute peace and reassurance. I am in God, and God is in me.
Centering myself in the indwelling presence of God, I live my life as the unique expression of God that I am. I am at peace, reassured, and fulfilled.

Oh for some women to adorn themselves properly!

By Rootzgirl
Rasta-Girl-Posters.jpgThe other day I was driving down a certain street in downtown Kingston and I couldn’t help groaning inside. In that short journey I must have passed at least six women on the roadside dressed in torn clothes, their big bellies protruding, some looking as if they had not taken a shower from the day before and I couldn’t help but wonder if these women lived with their partners.

Of course I came to the conclusion that they didn’t live with any man, for the simple reason that no man was going to allow his woman to walk through the door looking so unkempt and as my grandmother would say “slackey tidy”.

Where is the pride that would see them taking a good shower, putting on some decent clothes and coming out on the road looking like the ladies they are supposed to be.

It is truly a turnoff for me to drive on the street and see these women parading in all kinds of careless manner…and the worst thing is that they think it is OK to behave like that.

The one instant where a friend of mine told off one and suggested she tried to put herself together must better than that, she was greeted with a string of expletives and told to mind her own business…in fact Miss Ting went as far as suggested that if my friend didn’t watch her mouth then she might get a bullet for it.

So me, I just look, groan within myself and let things lie. If women want to go around like that, then let them…the big disappointment is that there are some careless men around the place who will still hunt them and so why not, they will not see anything wrong with it.





T-Pain sued for US$5M over failed GCC appearance

t-pain-aka-faheen-najm-1.jpgAmerican hip-hop star T-Pain is being sued Hits and Jams (H&J for his non appearance at a show in Guyana.

According to a story carried in the Guyana Chronicle the company filed an action on Monday, in the 17th Judicial Circuit Court, Broward County, Florida, United States (U.S.), against hip hop superstar T-Pain and Company.

The US$5M claim is for breach of a written contract, libel, defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

A release from the plaintiff said T-Pain was scheduled to perform at Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC) February 23 last, but cancelled the appearance after what his camp described as “credible kidnapping and death threats” to the singer’s life.

H&J said, despite several requests, the American superstar and his management team refused to provide the source of the alleged threats to the promoters and their attorney, law enforcement, the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and the U.S. Consulate in Guyana, to facilitate a probe.

H&J said the R&B artiste and his team merely informed them and their attorney that the threats came from “a credible source that T-Pain’s camp trusted” and “who they have been dealing with in Guyana” and that “T-Pain has dealt with the source in the past.”

After T-Pain cancelled the Guyana show, several false and incorrect reports in the international media attributed the cancellation of T-Pain’s appearance in Georgetown, to the promoters, Hits and Jams Entertainment.

“The press releases also falsely attributed personal knowledge of the alleged telephone and e-mail threats to the promoters. The promoters do not possess any personal knowledge of the alleged threat or the credibility of the alleged threats,” H&J said.

The statement said, according to the first clause of the action, for breach of contract, obtained from the local promoters, they are seeking an award of general and special damages in the above quoted amount, which is in excess of the jurisdictional limits of the Circuit Court, attorneys and Court fees, pre-judgement interest and such other relief the Court deems just and proper, against the defendants.

It added that the plaintiffs, respectfully, reserve the right to seek and assert a claim of punitive damages pursuant to the requirements of Florida Statute 768.72.

Three other causes of action, filed against the defendant, are for libel, defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress, each seeking US$15,000 awards.

solange-knowles-wedding-b.jpgWow, it would seem that women are the target for these men who really don’t know how to treat a lady. According to gossip web site mediatakeout.com Solange, sister of Beyonce was punched in the face at a concert by a patron who appeared to be drunk.

A reader which reported the incident to the web site said at the concert which she attended in Austin on Saturday a fan punched Solange in the face.

Below is the reader’s comment to the site.

“I just wanted to say that Solange got punched in the face. The dumb [EXPLETIVE] though that it would be cute for her to jump into the [crowd] while singing. Some guy was drunk and put up his fist when Solange jumped and hit her right in the chin. He acted like it was an accident, but I saw [him] afterwards and he was laughing about it with his friends.
I know it hurt [Solange], but she kept the show moving. When she climbed back up she said something like, ‘Some guy punched my in the lip’ but then she just danced and sang like everything was cool.


All yardflex has to say is shame on you for bragging about something like that.

Who colt the game? Marley magic tested

Marley magic.jpgEven as widow of the late Bob Marley, Rita, is defending the deal with Canadian company Hilco, which has a mission to boost the Marley legend through a worldwide marketing blitz, the reggae icon’s oldest son, Ziggy is having reservations.

The deal will see Hilco tracking illegal use of the Marley image and name. But the company's main thrust is overseeing the revival of daughter Cedella's Catch A Fire clothing line and launching a series of products, which include a Marley lager.

And, herein lies the conflict. Whereas Bob’s widow sees nothing wrong with the Rastafarian’s image attached to a product such as beer, the singer’s son is not so sure that this is the right branding for his father.

Rita Marley is quoted as saying: "I drink beer, Bob drink beer, his boys drink beer. He never drank alcohol but him love him Guinness and him roots."

The Marley family have endorsed or launched several ventures bearing the singer's name, including a theme park in Florida, Hotel and Spa that opened in The Bahamas in 2007.

Turks' jet-setting premier resigns
Turks and Caicos Islands.jpgPROVIDENCIALES, Turks and Caicos Islands - Premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands, Michael Misick, who had previously promised to resign on March 31, handed in his resignation Monday, a week earlier than expected, following what an investigation called "clear signs" of corruption.

Misick, a jet-setter, said he was stepping down early to give his successor more time to set up a new government - even as Britain plans to dissolve the territory's Cabinet and legislature following the wide-ranging UK corruption inquiry.

"I now announce that I will tender my resignation effective today as premier to allow the new PNP party leader to become premier," Misick said during a brief televised address in the Atlantic islands located between Haiti and the Bahamas.

With two private jets on call and a Hollywood actress wife, the 43-year-old Misick lived like the stars who inhabit the territory where Bruce Willis got married over the weekend.





flexa.jpgThe Canadian court on Monday handed down a 6 1/2-year federal prison sentence to Garfield Sibbles, son of internationally acclaimed reggae singer, Leroy Sibbles, for killing a child under his care.

Justice Bruce Durno sentenced Garfield Anthony Sibblies, 40, of Brampton, but since Sibbles has spent the equivalent of almost six years in custody, he could be released after serving two-thirds of the remaining six months in a provincial jail.

Sibbles pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the March 22, 2006, death of baby Elijah, who was six days short of his first birthday. The court was informed that an autopsy revealed the boy had 38 injuries but could not determine a single cause of death. Elijah had brain injuries consistent with impact and shaking, but insufficient swelling of the brain to kill him.

During the sentencing, Durno said "adults protect vulnerable and defenceless children, not abuse them." He described how the child's death devastated his mother, who buried him on what would have been his first birthday, in the clothes she had bought for him to wear for that day of celebration.

Elijah's mother took Sibblies' last name, but their marriage in 2005 was one of convenience, designed to help her and her son immigrate to Canada, court heard. Sibblies had a girlfriend and didn't intend to remain with the child's mother.

Yesterday, Durno ordered Sibblies to submit his DNA to the national data bank. Upon release, he will be on 36 months of probation, during which time he will be banned from being alone with children under 10.

Sibbles denied beating the child, but admitted he took out his anger and frustration with his own life on the infant that day. He slapped him on the side of his head when he refused to swallow his food and wouldn't sit still. Later, he shook him vigorously when he suddenly fell down and became unconscious.

Last week, Sibblies apologised, telling the court there were no words to explain his remorse. Court heard he told a psychiatrist that he would never forgive himself.

It was pure Marley Magic in Negril

DSC_0545.JPGIt was total magic at Wavz Beach in Negril on Saturday with some sizzling performances from top artistes at the event dubbed Marley Magic.

Junior Kelly gave a commendable performance and had the Negril massive singing along to songs such as If Love So Nice and others.
It was a real poignant moment when Spragga Benz took centrestage and performed a song in tribute to his son Carlisle who was shot and killed under controversial circumstances by the police. His emotionally charged performance brought tears to the eyes of patrons who were all moved by the tribute.

Junior ‘One Blood’ Reid did a tight set performing some of his current hits as well as drawing from his catalogue of Black Uhuru hits. The versatile Reid kept the tourists on a high with some of his hip-hop collaborations.

DJ Capleton threatened to burn the place down with his fire chanting lyrics, it was totally heat in the place after he took the stage. His set was a flag waving, foot stomping energetic session. When he made his exit it was a totally satisfied audience.

Following King Shango’s performance it was time for the only living Wailer, Bunny. Working on tracks he delivered a solid set.

Then it was time for the Marley magic and that came in Bob’s offsprings Stephen and Junior Gong, they worked an excellent set. ‘Magic’ is the only word that can describe their voices harmoniously blending together to produce awesome music.

Their set got even more fun when they called on stage Spragga and Wayne Marshall respectively to perform with them.

When the last strains of the music filled the air at 230 am it was a totally satiated crowd that made their way home.

dogs out.jpgKnowing our oneness, we live in harmony with one another.
A heartwarming story about a female dog that lovingly mothers six orphan kittens makes the national news. Perhaps the underlying message for people is that harmony is always possible because it's not about looking the same or sounding the same. It's about knowing our oneness and letting our unique qualities enhance our relationships.
People from different backgrounds often have different ideas about the same subject. Yet a diversity of ideas can lead to a hybrid idea--one that is a combination of the best of all ideas, a divine plan.
All was created by God and called good. So harmony is the norm when we interact with one another as we were created to act--with love and understanding, with compassion and consideration.
"May the God of steadfastness and encouragement grant you to live in harmony with one another, in accordance with Christ Jesus."--Romans 15:5

$25M fire at Sizzla’s residence
sizzla4.jpgReggae/dancehall artiste, Sizzla Kalonji, may have to temporarily relocate to his August Town-based Judgement Yard property as his Richings Ave, Liguanea residence was burnt down on Sunday morning.

“Sizzla did just drive out when the fire start,” a source told YardFlex, adding that the fire started after 9:30 Sunday morning .

Yesterday morning, scores of persons, including players in the music industry — one of whom was said to have just left Sizzla's house — gathered at the Richings Avenue house, owned by Exterminator producer and manager of Sizzla, Phillip ‘Fattis’ Burrell. Burrell, who was also on the scene, was not in any mood to hold discussions with the press.

The cause of the fire, which reportedly caused extensive damage to the upscale property, is still unknown. Loss is estimated at $25 million and it is not known at this time whether or not the property was insured.





Bounty Killa gives this little girl from.JPGDigicel, Jamaica’s Bigger, Better Network in collaboration with one of Jamaica’s top dancehall artistes, Bounty Killa, distributed school supplies to the children in Majesty Gardens, the community where he was born. The day’s event also included a video shoot for two of his current singles in rotation, ‘They Don’t Know’ produced by Shane Brown and ‘Corruption’, produced by Esco and the video was directed by Ras Tingle.

Shelly Ann Curran, Senior Sponsorship Manager at Digicel Jamaica commented; “We were approached by Bounty’s agent, Sharon Burke from Solid Agency about this initiative and we had to jump on board to lend our support to this worthy cause. This idea ties closely with the Y Files campaign which Digicel supports as a Jamaican corporate citizen, sending out messages in partnership with the media condemning violence against our youth. Our nation’s children need guidance and we want to be involved in any positive project that will help to steer them in the right direction and ultimately secure a better future for them. We were happy to have been a part of this initiative with Bounty”.

They see a tree in the distance, and as they get closer, they notice that it's draped with rashers of bacon, smoked bacon, crispy bacon, boiled bacon, grilled bacon, all sorts of bacon.

"Look deh!", says the first badman, "A bacon tree! And we ah dead fe hungry!"

So he starts to run toward the tree. As he gets close, he's gunned down in a hail of bullets.

He's lying wounded on the ground, and his friend shouts, "Wha'appen? Wha'appen? A who?"

The first badman replies, 'Nuh come yah man! A nuh bacon tree, is a ham

And, responding to a message from her ex, the actress/model later tweeted, "You're young, rich and over-rated. You think you can have anyone."

light.jpgThe Christ light reveals what is true, and I embrace it.
Without much thought, I might attach a negative label to a situation or person. Such an attitude caused me to come to that negative conclusion before I actually knew the person or had all the facts about a situation.
On second look--when I'm looking for the good--I find good. The situation I was a bit leery of becomes an opportunity for me to learn something of value. Taking the initiative to talk with the person I thought was aloof, I find that she responds with genuine interest.
The transformation is not with the situation or person. It actually happens in my own thoughts and attitude. As I let the wisdom of the inner Christ be my guide, I experience a transformation. The Christ light reveals what is true, and I embrace it.
"He will transform the body of our humiliation that it may be conformed to the body of his glory, by the power that also enables him to make all things subject to himself."--Philippians 3:21

Ninja detained for questioning in murder case

Yardflex_ninjaman.jpg

Controversial deejay Desmond Ballentine more popularly known as Ninjaman and Brother Desmond is now behind bars, as the police continue to gather information linking the deejay to Tuesday’s gun murder of a 20-year-old man in the Marl Road area of Kingston.

Ninja turned up with his attorney, Norma Linton at the Hunt’s Bay Police Station on Thursday, and was detained. He was named by the police as a person of interest in the murder of Ricardo Johnson, also called ‘Ricky Trooper’, at Johnson’s home in Marl Road, Kingston and had been asked to present himself to the authorities.

According to the police, Johnson and three men who were travelling in a grey motorcar were involved in a verbal altercation as he swept his yard in the company of a male friend. The men reportedly drove off but returned a short while after and opened fire at Johnson hitting him several times. He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Ninjaman, however, in an interview, told YardFlex that he knew nothing about the incident and vowed to clear his name. “Me not going prison fi dis one,” he said.

The Marl Road area is known to be one of the places frequented by the deejay.





hands4.jpgAustrian Josef Fritzl, who kept his daughter in a cellar and fathered her seven children, has been convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment.

Fritzl, 73, was found guilty of all charges against him, including rape, incest, murder and enslavement. The court ordered that Fritzl should serve his life sentence in a secure psychiatric facility.

Fritzl's lawyer, Rudolf Mayer, said outside the court after the verdict: "I would say that the verdict was a logical consequence of a confession. Of course if you have 3,000 cases of rape and 24 years of being kept in a cellar, it is evident that there can only be a punishment or verdict like this one."

The life sentence was handed down for the murder by neglect of one of the children, who died soon after birth.

The defendant first denied murder and enslavement but changed his plea to guilty after seeing testimony from his daughter. The verdict is final and irreversible, as neither the defence nor the prosecution is contesting it.

Fritzl, who will be kept under suicide watch, will be sent to a co-ordination centre, where it will be determined how dangerous he is, before going on to the psychiatric facility.

Fritzl's daughter could also bring a civil case against her father, adding that there was no limit to the damages she could request.
The Austrian imprisoned his daughter in a cellar under his house for 24 years and repeatedly raped her. The daughter and three of the children were kept captive in the cellar until the case came to light in April last year, when one of them became seriously ill and was taken to hospital.

The other three children were raised in the family home by Fritzl and his wife, after he told people that his daughter had abandoned them and joined a sect.

Break Through
yardflex.DW.jpgI accomplish my goals with strength and enthusiasm.

All the abundance of a new season of growth may not be evident just yet; in time, however, it will be.

Likewise, the results of all the time and energy I have put toward a goal may not be evident yet, but I remain positively, productively focused on it. Energized by the presence of God within me, I have the strength needed to complete what I have set my mind on completing.

There is always the potential for accomplishment within me. Just as surely as the season of new life unfolds, so, too, does my potential to break through any barriers to an accomplishment. My goals then become realities, revealing the results of my divinely inspired work.

"The earth produces of itself, first the stalk, then the head, then the full grain in the head. But when the grain is ripe, at once he goes in with his sickle, because the harvest has come."--Mark 4:28-29

chris-brown-and-rihanna.jpgThe rumour mills are at it and again and this time it’s news surrounding Rihanna and Chris Brown that they made an explosive sex tape.

According to gossip web site mediatakeout.com which quoted from their source the Star Magazine.

The pop princess worries that other shocking images could go public – wild sex tapes of her with her abusive boyfriend Chris Brown.

“Rihanna has no issues with her sexuality … She can be really out there. But she’d be mortified if her friends and family found this out.”
Other comments given on the site were: “Chris and Rihanna enjoy an aggressive love life that would shock many people … Rihanna loves dressing up – including as a dominatrix – and role playing. They both have kinky sides.”

Rihanna isn’t always the little goody-two-shoes everyone thinks she is, and Chris doesn’t want or need another scandal.”

Well for their sakes yardflex hopes this just remain a rumour as we think they have both had enough.





Mary J. Blige planning gospel album

maryjblige.jpgIn a recent interview with BellaOnline, secular singer Mary J Blige has declared that she too will be making a gospel album, sooner rather than later.

We all know that Blige is not a Christian but you could say she is definitely a work in progress.

She has been known as one to always connect with God through her music, as in few of her songs she gives him thanks and acknowledges God's presence in her life. Songs such as 'Testimony', "Work In Progress (Growing Pains)," and "Work That," to name a few.

We at YardFlex anticipate the production and release of this album, and hope to see other artistes both locally and internationally following in her footstep.

let go let god.jpgSomething good is happening, and I accept it now.
My Spirit-inspired patience allows for the unfoldment of the highest good. I am not just waiting for something good to happen. I know something good is happening, and I am ready to accept it.
Another way to describe my patience is that I am letting go of all worry and concern and letting God express wisdom through me. With this combination of releasing the negative and accepting the good, I recognize the best options or considerations.
As I let go and let God, I don't react to a situation; I respond from Spirit within. Relaxed and at ease, I go about doing what is mine to do. I allow space for others to do what is theirs to do. This leaves the way clear for a divine solution.
"Be patient, therefore, beloved, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious crop from the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains."--James 5:7

ninjahappeninegs.jpgPopular deejay and founder of the One Umbrella Movement, Desmond Ballentine, aka Nnjaman, who is wanted by the police for questioning in regard to the murder of a man known as Ricky Trooper, told Yardflex that he knows nothing about the killing.

Ninjaman is currently listed as a person of interest in the murder which reportedly took place in the Marl Road area of Kingston 11 on Tuesday.

According to the Constabulary Communication Network, about 11:15 am, Johnson, otherwise called ‘Ricky Trooper’ — not the selector — was sweeping his yard in the company of a friend when a grey motor car with three men aboard drove up. An argument reportedly developed between one of the men and Johnson’s friend and the car drove off. The vehicle later returned and the occupants opened fire, hitting Johnson. He died at the Kingston Public Hospital.

Ninjaman told Yardflex that he has contacted his lawyer, Norma Linton and they will be going in to the police sometime today (Wednesday).
“Right now a no time fi walk and shoot people. Me don’t know nothing about it. Me don’t even know who dem say dead,” he declared

Rasta-Girl-Posters.jpgCan you believe it last month we celebrated yet another Black History Month where movies showing how blacks fought and paved the way for us to enjoy true freedom. Everything that’s black was lauded, men whose inventions completely revolutionized the world. We were reminded of all the reasons why it’s wonderful to be black and then a simple walk on the street brings home the brutal reality that all these wonderful things are lost on a lot of folks.

They are all around you their faces with its unnatural hue, staring at you as they wash the windshields of your car.

A trek into the dancehall is a contradiction as some of them takes pride in their fancy footwork, but is ashamed of the colour of their skin.

In the broad sunlight they walk around with their faces covered as their skins cannot take the harsh light of the sun.

What is it about this phenomenon that allows a race that should be bursting with pride to be slow destroying themselves with the bleaching crème?


The more things change the more they remain the same, that’s all I can say. Courageous men and women died that we could be free but yet they are in the greatest bondage of all – that of the mind. They refuse to see their colour as something of worth, but instead look back and admire the lighter colour, thinking it’s something to aspire to.

Just what will it take for black people to realise and live the words of Marcus Mosiah Garvey, “up ye mighty race, you can accomplish what you will?”

What’s need a revolution of the minds where Black people will start looking into the mirrors and really seeing themselves for the beautiful creatures they are…then and only then will we be able to get rid of the need to bleach and disfigure our faces just so we can appear lighter. It’s time to truly start loving yourselves and if anyone have a problem with your skin…tough luck…hold your head up high and through away the crème…black, is after all beautiful, isn’t it?

jacksonville-fl-bailbonds-bill-dye-bail-bond.jpgRisto Benji, 34, who arrested last week on the charge of robbery with aggravation was yesterday, (Tuesday) out on bail.

Risto Benji, whose real name is Michael Benjamin was granted bail in the sum of $40,000 when he appeared in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court.

He is to return to court on June 22.

Mr. Benjamin was accused of robbing a woman last week.

It is reported that the woman was on her way from a shopping centre in Spanish Town when she sought Mr. Benjamin's assistance in taking her to another section of the old capital.

Mr. Benjamin reportedly agreed to take her on his motorcycle for a fee.

But instead the entertainer allegedly took her to another area where he attempted to steal her handbag.

His efforts resulted in him only leaving with her cellular phone.

The police, who were in the area, apprehended and charged Mr. Benjamin with robbery.

Shocking Vibes CEO Patrick Roberts wanted

5 Comments

PRoberts.jpgHead of Shocking Vibes Entertainment, Patrick Roberts is a wanted man. A warrant was on Monday issued for his arrest after he failed to appear in court to answer to tax evasion charges.

A businessman, music producer, and unsuccessful People's National Party candidate, Roberts was scheduled to appear before the Tax Court to answer to charges that he owes the government millions of dollars in unpaid taxes.

However, when his name was called in court he did not appear and, as a result, the judge ordered a warrant for his arrest.

In his capacity as CEO of Shocking Vibes Roberts was responsible for the career of top flight deejay, Moses ‘Beenie Man’ Davis, who was himself involved in a tax evasion drama last year. The court charged that Beenie Man owed the government some $48-million in taxes.

The charges against the former Shocking Vibes deejay were subsequently dismissed, on the grounds that the notice of assessment was flawed.

Roberts last year stood the surety for politician Kern Spencer, who is charged in the Cuban light-bulb scandal.

spice!.jpgThe Long Bay Beach in Negril was abuzz with fever pitch excitement as the massive turned out for the Spring Break stage show.

It was a night which saw some great performances coming from the likes of I-Octane, Gyptian, Blonde Ras, Richie Spice and Bascombe X.

Beekie Bailey scored big points with his performance as he after lashed out at some of the top dancehall artistes such as Mavado, Vybz Kartel Monster Hemphire and Anthony B who he claims eat Lobster.

It was drama when Singer J took the stage, his constant movements seemed to irritate one of the cameramen and he himself at one point bounced the photographer out the way. It all climaxed with Singer J hitting the ground seemingly pushed by the cameraman. Things could have gotten out of hand, but thank heavens it didn’t.

Spice really got the crowd worked up as she performed Ramping Shop calling in two volunteers to take Vybz Kartel lot. She even took out a condom as she advocated for safe sex. Her performance was really steamy and the crowd just loved it.

When the gully god Mavado took centre stage it was pandemonium as the crowd went wild, for the singjay who is firmly perched “on the rock”. He went through his paces reeling out one hit after another.

Beenie Man was in his usual awesome form and could do no wrong for his hungry fans who ate up all that he had to offer and still wanted more.

CONF6Large.jpgAfter three hours of “intense deliberations” the jury in the Peter King trial found the accused, 25-year-old Sheldon Pusey, guilty of manslaughter in the death of former trade.

Ten of 12 jurors on Monday voted to convict Pusey on the lesser charge of manslaughter.
The other two jurors wanted to free Pusey, who sat motionless in the prisoners' dock at the Home Circuit Court while the verdict was being announced. He will be sentenced on April 1.
Following the adjournment, defence attorney Berriston 'Berry' Bryan told reporters that he will be appealing the verdict and “the prosecution has suppressed evidence critical to the defence."
This suppressed evidence is the prosecution's decision not to tender into evidence two knives that were taken from King's Waterloo Road, home a day after the March 2006 killing.

The prosecution had said during the trial that the knives were not relevant to the case, as no blood or prints belonging to King or the accused were found on them.

Pusey, a resident of Gordon Town in St Andrew, had been on trial since January 19 for the murder of the 64-year-old King, whose nude, mutilated body was found in his bedroom covered by a comforter. King's body had a total of 30 wounds, including four stabs and four chops.





A music free Jamaica

Rasta-Girl-Posters.jpgI’m dreaming of a new Jamaica where people can live in love and harmony. Where we can once again enjoy the simple things in life and kick back to some great music…whether on or off the bus!

Sad to say maybe that’s all I will be able to do …dream. If the government has its way then listening to music on the bus and being entertained on a long journey by watching a movie or taking in some music videos may be a thing of the past.

While the government moves to censor the music, I have no problem with that, but cutting off every avenue of entertainment … well that’s crossing the line.

Needless to say it’s not even safe to be driving in a vehicle that isn’t equipped with a radio. There are times when it will be necessary to listen to the radio to monitor the news especially in times of storms or maybe to find out if there unrest and areas to avoid.

This leaves the big question is Broadcast Commission cleaning up the music or eliminating all forms of music altogether?

If we sit back and allow this to happen then what else will be taken from us? Just think about it and make your voices be heard now.

Another Malawi child adoption by Madonna?

madonna300.jpgDespite the controversy surrounding Madonna’s earlier adoption of a Malawi child from the poor South African region she has indicated that she is willing to do it again.

Critics accused the government of skirting laws that ban non-residents from adopting children in Malawi, which has been badly hit by the AIDS epidemic, after Madonna took on David Banda.

"Many people -- especially our Malawian friends -- say that David should have a Malawian brother or sister," she said in response to emailed questions from Malawi's the Nation newspaper.

"It's something I have been considering, but would only do, if I had the support of the Malawian people and the Government."

A Malawian court approved the adoption of David last year.

Madonna has said the controversy had been difficult to deal with but she was happy to be involved in a case that might pave the way for more adoptions in Malawi. An estimated one million children in the country have been orphaned by AIDS.

Madonna, who began adoption proceedings in 2006, took David when he was 13-months-old after his father had placed him in an orphanage following the death of his wife.

David is growing up in the high-flying life of a leading popstar, worlds away from his village of Lipunga, where Banda's relatives eat staple food like maize meal from simple bowls and meals are cooked on open fires.

I release the gladness of my soul into the environment.
It's been said that, on average, children laugh up to 300 times a day while adults laugh only 15 times a day. In reality, however, there is no age limitation on laughter.
eqwe.jpgIf I want to feel younger and look younger, then it's only natural that part of my daily routine is to laugh more. Laughing gives the muscles of my face, chest, and abdomen a workout. A hearty laugh stimulates my heart rate, causes me to breathe deeply, and releases happiness hormones, my endorphins.
Laughter is one of the ways I express my gratitude to God. As I laugh, I release the gladness of my soul into the environment--creating something that's good for me and good for all those around me.
"Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then it was said among the nations, 'The Lord has done great things for them.' "--Psalm 126:2

usain-bolt-m.jpgCould this be true…if it is then the Premier League has just gotten more interesting. Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly set to meet up with the fastest man on the planet, Usain Bolt, in a bid to become even faster.

As if it isn’t already a strugle to keep up with the Portuguese pace and skill on the field, this meet will create even more problems for his challengers.

According to the Independent on Sunday, Bolt is a huge Ronaldo fan and will meet up with the player in the summer with a view to improving his sprinting.

The 22-year-old Jamaican will be in Europe for the World Championships, which take place in Berlin in August, and will take time out to give Ronaldo some pointers.

His manager, Ricky Simms, confirmed that the meeting between the two superstars will take place.

“It’s definitely going to happen,” said the Irishman. “We’ll sort something out this summer when Usain comes to Europe.”

The Jamaican stunned the world last summer at the Beijing Olympics when he won three gold medals, in the 100 metres, 200 metres and 4 x 100 metres relay, smashing all three world records in the process.

The Independent on Sunday reports that Bolt is a huge football fan and that the proposed meeting between the two came about when he asked Ronaldo for a signed shirt for his collection.

The Man United winger was apparently happy to comply with the request, in return for sprinting lessons from the world’s fastest man.

20090313.jpgGiving expression to the love of God within me, I bless my heart.
As strong and reliable as my heart is, my feelings have an incredible impact on it. So I know not to hold stressful thoughts or feelings in my mind and heart.
My heart is a physical expression of my consciousness. When I feel positive emotions as I share a tender moment with someone or I am alone in serene meditation, this precious organ is calm. It relates with mind and body in healthy, renewing ways.
My love and intuition are heart-connected. And so I practice loving, positive thinking and acting. I forgive others, and I also forgive myself. I give expression to the love of God within me.
With each thought and action, I bless my heart and, at the same time, I am also blessing others in a heartfelt way.
"The Lord does not see as mortals see; they look on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart."--1 Samuel 16:7

What’s with the killing in the dancehall

Webmin

By Rootzgirl
Rasta-Girl-Posters.jpgThere is a saying that my grandmother used to repeat and it’s what you sow you will reap. Why are we amazed at the various murders now taking place in the dancehall?” Why the sense of outrage when a boat event turns out to be deadly or shootings are taking place at club events and at the dances? It should be drawing any shocked gasps from us.

We are the ones who have embraced the gun lyrics in the dances which glorifies the act of killing people as if they are not worth much. One DJ even bragged about his prowess implying he’s bold enough to kill man in broad daylight, while another describe the gory details of marrow spilling.

I could go on and on name a lot more songs that makes the act of taking a life seem like nothing, so when these songs help to feed the appetite of the perpetrators don’t complain.

That’s why I have to big up Bounty Killer who recognized the importance of effect songs and artistes have on their fans when he went on stage and said, “mi nuh want nuh more people fi dead!”
Yes that’s the stance artistes should now be taking realizing the responsibility they have and they power they have over listeners. I am not saying that they are the ones urging them to pull the trigger, but if they do songs that are more conscious then it could help bring about a change.

Just go into a hardcore dance and you can feel the tenseness, but on the other hand go to an oldies jam or some singers session and feel the lightness in the air, the sense of enjoyment.
The dance has become a scary place to be and that’s sad. People are now thinking twice before they leave their homes. It’s time to reclaim what was once our pride and joy…cut the almshouse out of it and let’s get back to some real jamming!

Beenie Man also took potshots at Barbee calling her ‘crazy’. He also admitted that he had dated the Junoesque singer, one of Beenie's first public admissions of their failed relationship that had the media world in a tizzy for well over a year.

“Barbee wanted a Chris Brown-Rihanna thing, and I couldn’t deal with that,” he said, seemingly making a reference to the toxic nature of their past relationship where they reportedly had many loud arguments.

When contacted about Beenie’s disparaging comments, Barbee who was overseas on a business trip, said she “had nothing negative to say about Beenie’.

“I am just promoting Barbee right now,” the statuesque singer who scored a hit with the reggae-flavoured ‘Love You Anyway’ this year.

The Jamaican born Dr. Hall, who is a former student of the St. Andrew High School for Girls, said she was honoured and humbled by the honour, as this was a great achievement for her as a member of a minority group.

The recognition, which came with a US$10,000 cash prize, is the highest professional honour for an urban educator and K-12 school administrator in the United States.

The announcement, which was made at the AASA's National Conference on Education in San Francisco last weekend, capped a year of high-level honours for Dr. Hall, who was named Georgia Superintendent of the Year in December by the Georgia School Superintendents Association, and one of the 100 most influential Georgians by Georgia Trend magazine.

A new me has emerged.
cocreator.jpgWatching accomplished athletes execute their skills with perfection, I may consider their performances to be easy and effortless. I know, though, that they have dedicated years of practice toward honing their skills.
There is truth in the adage "practice makes perfect." My spiritual practices of prayer and meditation, faith and trust are more than skills. They are a way of life, a way of living in awareness of who I am and what I can accomplish as a cocreator with God.
With a dedication of my time and understanding, my heart and soul to God, I am spiritually enriched. I am renewed in spirit, mind, and body, and my life is a reflection of the new me that has emerged.
