Hip-Hop Worldwide. The phrase has never meant more. Today it is worldwide! What's more, it is about culture... particularly with this piece, as this documentary video speaks to the cultural impact of Hip-Hop outside the USA.

Rapper Nasir 'Nas' Jones takes us on a world tour of breakdancing in the most unexpected places. We visit the slums, shanty towns and ghettos of the world, where hip-hop really means something. With jaw-dropping breakdancing moves, B-boys and B-girls in Uganda, Yemen, Cambodia and Colombia give us an inspiring tribute to the uplifting power of music and movement.

Kanye West Addresses Graduates Of L.A. Trade Technical College (Video)



Just think... Whatever you think about the man, having Yeezus show up and give a real talk at your graduation would rate high among your college memories. Even cooler if a popular campus brag has been that Professor West was once part of the faculty there. Well, Guess Who's Bizzack? Yep, took it there for a sec. Watch Kanye West address L.A. Trade Tech's newest cap-n-gowners.

Lauryn Hill's The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill To Be Added To Library Of Congress

Cornell University And Bill Adler To Create A Digital Hip-Hop Archive (Audio)



Aaliyah, Ace Hood, the Afros, Ali D, Arrested Development: In Bill Adler's extensive collection of Hip-Hop history, some of the genre's biggest names are arranged next to lesser mainstream artists.

Adler was the founding publicity director of Def Jam Records. One of his first assignments was getting pop music critics at daily newspapers to cover one of the label's new artists, LL Cool J. He worked at Def Jam for six years, before going independent and later running a gallery devoted to Hip-Hop photography. From these ventures, he accrued a massive archive, which lived in a storage space in the basement of his building until he sold the collection to Cornell University last year. Soon it will also live online

Adler sent Cornell University 500 vinyl recordings, an impressive collection of books in several languages and roughly 100,000 newspaper and magazine articles about rap and Hip-Hop...

100 Orgasms A Day: Freak Accident Leaves Man With Debilitating Disorder (Video)
Screenshot 2014-12-19 05.16.01
Screenshot 2014-12-19 05.16.05



You read the title. It brought you here. A hundred orgasms a day...debilitating???

It is unbelievable, but the video segment above will help you believe...and understand. But before you completely understand, your disbelief may give way to a couple of chuckles. You're human, and this is a very strange thing. One that will likely make you uncomfortable and maybe frighten you a bit; a real example of too-much-of-a-good thing made all too real. It is not good.

Read on. Meet Dale. Try to understand.

A heartbroken man suffers from 100 orgasms each day - but does not enjoy a single one. Dale Decker is the first man to ever speak publicly about Persistent Genital Arousal Syndrome - a condition he developed in September 2012 when he slipped a disc in his back while getting out of a chair. On his way to the hospital he suffered his first five orgasms and has been given no respite from them since. The painful pelvic episodes have left him housebound and isolated through fear of suffering a public orgasm. Dale lives in Two Rivers, Wisconsin with his wife April and two sons Christian, 12 and Tayten, 11. While she does everything she can to support him, April, 33 is finding Dale's condition just as hard to live with as he is. The horrific condition has cost Dale many of his friends and the relationship he shares with his sons has also been affected. Despite suffering from a near constant erection Dale and April rarely have sex.

The Monica Marie Jones Show Podcast

    
The Monica Marie Jones Show Podcast

I've been living in Louisville, Kentucky for the month on business. This month away from home was perfect timing because I am facing several changes and transitions in my personal and professional life. During my days here I have spent a lot of time alone reflecting on my past and planning for my future. During this season of self-discovery I've come to the realization that I want to direct all of my focus into the launch of my own show, The Monica Marie Jones Show.

Based on my research I've decided to use podcasting as my platform. I fell in love with podcasts over the past year as they have helped me to learn and grow tremendously. It all started when I stumbled upon the School of Greatness podcast with Lewis Howes. I would listen to one or two of his episodes every day while working out. After a while I noticed that they began to change me for the better. Not only were they extremely inspiring, but they were also very educational in areas such as entrepreneurship and fitness.

Between the podcasts and my recent work as a radio personality for Urban Nation Radio, I made the decision that I'd like to use this popular new platform to entertain, educate, encourage and inspire you. So for the past few weeks I have been working diligently. I have been studying, doing research and I have joined The School of Greatness Academy as well as Podcaster's Paradise (With John Lee Dumas, Host of the Entrepreneur on Fire Podcast). I made these investments in me so that I can deliver a high quality product to you.

I spent all day today writing the business plan. My goal is to launch on January 1, 2015. So please allow me to share my initial vision, mission, show description and goals with you, and let me know what you think. This show is for YOU so I want your input and ideas...

Vision

The Monica Marie Jones show will lead listeners to a life of health, wealth and rewarding relationships.

Mission

The Monica Marie Jones show is a podcast that inspires listeners to take actions that continuously improve their health, wealth and relationships.

Description

The Monica Marie Jones Show will provide entertaining encouragement in the areas of business, fitness, relationships and finance. Monica will host topic based and interview based episodes highlighting inspiring individuals such as entrepreneurs, authors, artists and everyday heroes who have a journey and a story to share that will motivate the masses. The show will air 7 days a week for 30 minutes to an hour and will include segments such as Monday Morning Motivation, Midweek Motivation, The Urban Storytellers Series and other exciting themes for each day of the week.

The Return Of The Black Death (Documentary)

    
The Return Of The Black Death (Documentary)



In the minds of most Westerners, still, the Black Plague triggers thoughts of history lessons, or of movies about the Middle Ages. This is not a modern era illness we face. To oversimplify, the Black Death is supposed to be dead. Well, with recent mainstream reporting about a third world outbreak - and a public health scare as two victims returned to Atlanta (Georgia, USA) for treatment - the West likely experienced a mental software upgrade that re-ranked the disease much higher among the threats to health and chances of survival. However, as is oft the case for mainstream media, another shiny new story came up, and another (Ray Rice, U.S.-led airstrikes...whatever, take your pick); and Western reporters moved on to the next one...on to the next one. But not VICE. This is where VICE lives: Embedded in the hottest areas of stories too dangerous AND too low on the 'this just in' scale of current events for big-budget reporting outfits to care about; usually in faraway places and affecting people who are to far removed from 'us' to care about. THAT is why we f#ck with VICE: Because as a noble reporting institution that could do otherwise, it consistently chooses to find and stay on the stories that thinking and feeling people would indeed care about (or care about longer) if they were told and kept fully informed about them. Like this Black Death that the mainstream news (liberal and conservative leaning) thinks is 'dead' (e.g. a dead story). It is still VERY much alive. And not knowing and keeping up with it could still get lots and lots of us KILLED.

[I]n the fall of 2013, Beranimbo [Madagascar, Africa] had been an epicenter of a black plague outbreak that resulted in nearly 600 cases and more than 90 deaths across the country. Madagascar reports the most instances of the disease in the world. Depending on which century you're talking about, it's perhaps best known as the plague-a scourge generally associated with the Middle Ages, when rats, fleas, and poor hygiene resulted in the deaths of between 75 and 200 million people. The disease remains an enduring threat in third-world nations; public-health watchdogs report up to 2,000 cases a year.

VICE gives a detailed, two-part documentary report and writeup. Watch, starting with part 1 above. Follow the link to read more below; and hit the jump for part 2. Get this knowledge in you like medicine! Folks and the media think the 'curing' of two folks in the ATL is a triumph over what could be considered a 'scary outbreak that happened over there.' Nah, maaan. This thing could hit a city! Thousands to millions of people at risk. Maybe that'd make it 'big' enough to get outbreak coverage again but... as the VICE report adeptly put it: "[H]istory has taught us, by the time ther

You just didn't get it...yet...

- Janelle Monae, On The "Power of Yet"

Don't you just love Janelle? If not, too bad. We do. And apparently the kids do. PBS and Sesame Street certainly had to love the work she put in for them on this!

If you believe in yourself, you'll get there. That's the power of yet. You might not be ready for outer space yet, but just work hard and keep your eye on the prize and you'll get to where you want to be!

Activism/Education: The NDAA Explained In 3 Minutes (Video)
Secret prison



Think all you had to worry about regarding your life and liberty in the United States were possible unknown risks inherent to your food supply, and very known instances of police brutality? Think again. This mini-expo video should give you a quick shake and smack to wake you up to the real dangers of having government-sanctioned arrests, extractions, and detainment without due process (per the National Defense Authorization Act) and nearly no real oversight. This is part of the not-so-beautiful half Homeboy Sandman rapped about America...

Regardless of where on this planet you live, and no matter what your nationality, the fact that the indefinite detention provisions of the NDAA are still on the books, should disturb you on a fundamental level. If not, give it three minutes.
