NCAA – Women of Troy Blow out the Flames

Los Angeles, Ca – After a two week break from games the Women of Troy ( 3-2) showed no signs of rust in a impressive  20-6 win over the Liberty Flames (1-5). It’s still earlier in the lacrosse season still in non conference schedule but the Trojans  have had some tough games already.

They started the scoring barrage as earlier as 28:00 minutes left in half with a free position shot by captain midfielder Amanda Johansen. The Trojans had a goal scored by 11 different players in the game. The attack on Liberty just came from all over the place. Johansen personally accounted for three goals herself, two being 8 meters goals. She was very please with her teammates play, “We worked hard at practice to make sure we got ready for Liberty.”

The Trojans leading scorer in game was sophomore Attacker Michaela Michael who put in five goals. When asked why she thought the team and herself had so much success in this game Michael said, “We were ready for the zone defense and a lot of 8 footers so I had great looks (on goal).” The offense looked real fluid and the ball was moving in great rhythm, Michael said “Nice to be back at home verse being on the road last few games with the great weather.

Women's Lacrosse MPSFThe referees were a little relaxed in the game on calling fouls, which resulted in little more physical play.  The Trojans had few bumps delivered from Liberty around the arc. Coach Munday liked the performance of her team overall, “The girls were ready to play someone else after practicing against each other for the last two weeks.” Coach seemed to be most impressed by how the defense created offense. It’s was really special to hold Liberty best two scorers empty in the first half, they came into this contest both with 14 goals apiece. Munday also commented that their play between the 30’s with the midfield play was very sound.

Looking ahead into conference play in MPSF, the Trojans will have Cal Lady Bears. After today’s contest the Bears will have few more people to scout for because of the depth and scoring threats. They really showed how strong and deep the Women of Troy are this year playing over 30 players in this victory.

 

NBA – Clippers Win on #LawlerNight

Los Angeles, Ca – The Los Angeles Clippers (41-23) have a smooth night over the Minnesota Timberwolves (14-48) with 89-76 victory. They had just come home from playing Golden State yesterday afternoon on prime time but still had the energy to come out and play hard on Ralph #LawlerNight. Lawler not normally the star inside the arena but tonight he was.

NBAThe Clippers played a solid but not great game with four players scoring in double figures led by JJ Redick with 26. DeAndre Jordan battled hard down in paint with 20 points, 17 rebounds and 2 blocks, Timberwolves led by Adreian Payne with 16 points and 15 rebounds. These two giants for both teams look to impose their will on the glass when they could. Chris Paul looked to distribute the ball most of the night having 15 assist with 2 points on only 6 shots in game.

After the game Coach Doc Rivers of the Clippers was already answering questions about the upcoming road trip, “This next road trip will be hard. We have to be great defensively. We need to play like we played today or how we played in Chicago.” Now with only 18 games left in regular seasons it appears Golden State will win division, but Doc said “We rather be number one, but we are not going to be. When the Playoffs start we are all even. That is the way we look at it.”

Minnesota coach Filp Saunders chose not to play Kevin Garnett tonight and give him some rest. So it was up to the young guns who seemed to be out of steam. At this point in season the rookies have few off nights not use to going this deep in the number of games for a season. Tonight was their 62nd game, if Zach LaVine, Andrew Wiggins were still in college the max number of games is only 40 and this if they made it to NCAA championships game. Flip said, “I thought that Wiggins and LaVine, those guys, they look tired. Whether it’s the amount of minutes they played prior that’s catching up to them or what, but they didn’t seem to have the same energy that they’ve had.”

The Clippers are facing a lot of injures and need to get healthy fast for this stretch coming with playoffs just around the corner. The two ten day contracts Jordan Hamilton and Nate Robinson will need to make contributions fast to earn a spot on the post season roster. Blake Griffin looks to possible be back in action during the road trip with Jamal Crawford staying home and getting more treatment and rest. The Clippers will face off against Oklahoma City Thunder (35-28) Wednesday, March 11th at 5pm.

 

 

Phi Beta Sigma to Sponsor Documentary of Congressman John Lewis

John Lewis Congressman

Washington, DC- The John Lewis Documentary Project is much anticipated film documenting the life and legacy of Civil Rights icon, and a United States Congressman. Lewis is a profile in courage of a gentleman Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. proudly calls one its legendary members.

Jonathan A. Mason, Sr., International President and Micheal Cristal, International First Vice President of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., will join a large bipartisan congressional delegation for a three-day civil rights pilgrimage to Alabama. Rep. John Lewis, D-GA., who has led the pilgrimage every year since 1998, will lead the march as it passes through Birmingham, Selma, Montgomery and Marion. On Saturday, March 7, 2015, Mason will be a part of the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Selma-to-Montgomery marches. In attendance will be President Barack Obama, Former President George W. Bush, Congressman John Lewis, and 95 members of Congress, community and faith leaders and ordinary citizens to  commemorate the 50th anniversary of the march in Selma for voting rights.

PBS lewisAs part of Phi Beta Sigma’s participation and to honor their fraternity brother Congressman John Lewis, the fraternity has announced the support for the John Lewis Documentary project which is directed by Stanley Nelson, who is among the nation’s foremost documentary filmmakers. Nelson is a multiple-prime-time Emmy winner, and MacArthur “Genius” Fellow and a host of other titles he directed for PBS as well as work for CNN and HBO.

John Lewis played a pivotal role in Selma. He was beaten and terrorized by the police on the Edmund Pettus Bridge on “Bloody Sunday.” It is to appreciate those individualism many of whom remain nameless and faceless, who sacrificed their careers, freedom, bodies, and indeed their lives, so that African Americans could cast their ballots free from discrimination or exclusionary measures that this march is being celebrated. The march commemorates Selma to celebrate the work of these activists and the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

As one of the sponsors of the documentary, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. will receive prominent film credit. Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity’s involvement in the film project on Congressman Lewis’ life is a continuation of the civil rights activities the 101 years old community service organization has been championing since its founding. Future generations of the organization’s members will be enriched Lewis’ leadership and legacy. Looking forward “Sigmas” can be proud of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. involvement in this historic documentary at this time in the United States history.

This documentary project will trace John Lewis’ life – from his boyhood in the Jim Crow South, to the front lines of the Civil Rights movement, to his work in Congress and leadership on international human rights and nonviolence issues. The life of John Lewis is a testament to virtue, humility, hard work, courage, faith, commitment and strength. His motivating personal journey reassures each of us that we can make a difference.

He Controls It With His Hands

‘He Controls It With His Hands’

“The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water,

He turns it whichever way He wants.”

Proverbs 21:1

The battle is the Lord’s! Again.. the battle is the Lord’s!

It doesn’t matter what they are trying to do to you, or the accusations they’ve thrown your way..in the end, you will win!

Pray that God will turn their hearts in your favor…

Their hearts may be hardened even harder than Pharaoh’s, but the king’s hearts are in His hands and He has the power to turn them whichever way He  pleases!

If He is allowing it to be this way for now, trust His plan…

If you don’t understand, and you are still wrestling.. trust His heart!

His intentions for you are good!

When it’s time, He will turn it for your good, and for His glory!

A Celebration of Life, Love & Charity

Beverly Hills Ca -A night of celebration with friends, family and fans for Daniel “Booby” Gibson that was titled “Booby’s World”. The theme of the night was Booby’s World, that had many subplots from NBA player, poet, and artist. The scene at H.O.M.E. in Beverly Hills had radio personality Tammi Mac & DJ Mal-Ski as master of ceremonies for the night.

The celebrities arrived at the red carpet that was full of photographers and video cameras looking to get few sound bites. This exclusive birthday party was in full swing once the birthday boy arrived in style with his brother K Ford and  few others. We were introduced to few of the entertainment signers and poets of the carpet earlier, which included Katelin Wagner (poet), Jasmine Williams (poet), & Amille (singer) to name a few.

Gibson now a NBA free agent this season has had time to enjoy and work on his poetry a true passion of his. This is big part of Booby’s World, the party attendees was treated to few old school songs from 1986 then 2004 which were big years for Gibson. The poetry of spoken word was delivered throughout  the lineup. Grammy nominated singer Antonique Smith graced the stage for few songs topped by leading the crowd in singing to the man of the hour Happy Birthday.

 

The night was truly a celebration that made Gibson keep a smile on his face all night. The Houston native spoke to crowded from his heart and then shared his gift of poetry and song.  For the folks that hadn’t seen this side of the NBA player now had a greater insight into what is “Booby’s World”

NFL in Los Angeles, LOL

Los Angeles, Ca- The NFL back in Los Angeles, Carson, Inglewood, Downtown oh wait City of Industry. The current stadium plan or great leverage ploy is Carson two team Stadium plan for San Diego Chargers & Oakland Raiders. I guess the old saying is true opposites attract, now this togetherness for a joint venture or leverage tool. I see this more as a leverage tool to get their current cites to jump at their command.

I would love to have football overload right here in our backyard 24 home games with a Super Bowl guaranteed in five years. Look out Indianapolis the new home for the NFL combine at one of these venues, Pro Bowls in backdrop of Hollywood. Los Angeles boast the second largest metropolitan market region in the United States but can it really support three teams. I  can recall TV blackouts of home games of the Rams & Raiders and how soon will it be before this is true again.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4pUrUcH0ic

As for now Carson Spokesman Fred Mackfarlane had lots of inspiring words about this 72,000 seat, 168 aches of land zoned for mixed use and jointly purchased by the Chargers and Raiders. Macfarlane said this venue is about, “Community Spirit, Pride, Economic Development, Jobs, and City Future.” All three venues would benefit greatly form boost a project of this size will bring. Tax revenues alone would help make it just a little bit easier to balance their budgets. So you can only image what the current cities feel about potentially losing a large chunk of money if their teams depart.

The Chargers have tried unsuccessfully for 14 years to build enough momentum to get a new stadium in their home city. San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer appointed a nine-member stadium advisory group to come up with a recommendation for a stadium site and a financing plan last month, but the team has viewed that effort as a futile, last-ditch attempt to keep the team in San Diego.

The Raiders currently play in the aging Oakland Coliseum. The rundown stadium has had sewage and electrical problems in the past year, and now is the only stadium in the U.S. used as the home for both an NFL and a Major League Baseball team, the Oakland Athletics. The team wants to build a new stadium at the site, but talks with the city have shown little progress.

The Rams have been in a similar struggle with St. Louis but have made progress with a burgeoning plan for a 64,000-seat stadium on the city’s north riverfront.

The owners run the NFL with the idea of making more money and stability. Sports fans in So Cal will be watching the news and football on TV like we all have for the last 20 years.

 

Global Theft Ring

A hacking ring has stolen up to $1 Billion dollars from banks around the world. This is one of the biggest banking breaches; infiltrated more than 100 banks in 30 countries. American banks were targeted but at this time no breaches have been confirmed on our soil.
The hackers methods was slow and study watching, learning how these banks moved and balanced accounts. Dating back to 2013 they got into the different systems by sending random emails to bank employees. Once the employees clicked on a link, the virus was free to roam and spy on employees on their banks financial systems. After gaining enough info they would use a few different methods to gain about $10 million as their ceiling that made it hard to detected.
They used a few methods to get funds from the banks in plain sight. The Hackers reprogrammed ATMs to dispense money at specific times and set up fake accounts to transfer money into them. These types continued to work to the tune of $10 Million through Online Banking, and another $7.3 Million at ATMs.
So as things get more and more computerized look for more security but we have to remember the brains to make the firewalls security are also the same brains to hack them. Be smart and check your balances to avoid you accounts from being hit.
