Track Athlete Jessica Davis Makes USA Bobsled Team



2018-2019 USA Bobsled National Team named




LAKE PLACID, N.Y.(Oct. 26, 2018)Twenty-three athletes were named to the USA Bobsled National Team this morning after the conclusion of selection races in Lake Placid. Although 13 of the 17 athletes named to the pool of push athletes have earned their first national team berth, the potential of the 2018 rookie class has the coaches optimistic about the future. Team USA qualified three quota spots for both the women’s and men’s teams.
“We are going to be leaning on the veterans, coaches and drivers to help turn this high-potential rookie class into world-class bobsled athletes,” said USABS CEO Darrin Steele. “There will be a steep learning curve, but after what we’ve seen from this group in push championships and team trials, we expect big things.”

"I’m looking forward to starting the next chapter with these drivers,” said USA Bobsled Head Coach Mike Kohn. “Starting a new Olympic quad is always challenging, but we’ve got the tools to get things kicked off on the right path.”
For the Women's Team Elana Meyers Taylor (Douglasville, Ga.) earned a bye onto the national team with her 2018 Olympic silver medal performance. Brittany Reinbolt(Searcy, Ark.) and Nicole Vogt(Dallas, Texas) will join Meyers Taylor as the women’s national team drivers.

The six competitors named to the women’s pool of push athletes includes the following, listed in alphabetical order: former Wayne State College track athlete Nicole Brungardt(Norfolk, Neb.), University of Southern California track athlete Jessica Davis(Gardena, Calif.), 2018 Olympic silver medalist Lauren Gibbs(Los Angeles, Calif.), former LSU-Shreveport basketball player, weightlifter and reigning national bobsled push champion Sylvia Hoffman(Arlington, Texas), former Towson track athlete Megan Kelly(Middletown, Md.) and former University of Iowa track athlete Lake Kwaza(Sycamore, Ill.).
The first World Cup race will be in Sigulda, Latvia from December 3-9. The season also features a World Cup on home ice in Lake Placid from February 11-16, and the season will conclude with World Championships on the 2010 Olympic track in Whistler, Canada from February 25-March 10.

Rapper Kaalan Walker charged with 9 counts of felony sexual assault



Walker charged with 9 counts of felony sexual assault

 Rapper Kaalan Walker was charged with nine counts of felony sexual assault, the Los Angeles Police Department said Thursday.

Kaalan Walker, 23, of Valley Village was arrested on Sept. 11 by detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department's Rampart Station in connection of a series of sexual assaults dating back to 2016. Walker, who recently had a role in the 2018 thriller "Superfly," is being accused of a series of sexual assaults. According to the LAPD, Walker contacted aspiring models on social media "with the premise of being hired to work professionally." 

Walker allegedly lured the women to meet with him alone and then sexually assaulted them. The rapper and actor is being held on over $1,000,000 bail.

Walker raps under the stage name "KR" and released an album titled "The Intermission" last year. In 2017, he appeared alongside Daniel Craig and Halle Berry in the film "Kings."
In a June interview with Billboard, Walker opened up about his battle with depression and how he got started in hip-hop. "I don't think I would be on this earth right now if I rejected the fact that I had depression. Once I started saying it openly and not caring about what people think that's when it felt better," Walker told Billboard. "The worst part of depression is when you have it and you hide it within yourself because you can't express it to anyone. When you don't express it, it lives in your head. When it lives in your head, it conquers your thoughts. When it conquers your thoughts, it drives you crazy. When it drives you crazy you're dead. That's why as an artist if anyone asks me personal questions I want to tell them the truth."

Police are asking those with information on additional victims to contact the Van Nuys Area detectives at 818-374-9500.

Trump signs bill that ensures music streaming services pay artist royalties


There were some "Good Vibrations" at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. 
Musicians including Mike Love from the Beach Boys, Kid Rock, John Rich of Big and Rich, and Sam Moore of Sam and Dave came to the White House for the signing of a bill that substantially changes the way musicians are compensated for their work played on digital streaming services such as Spotify and Pandora. 
“Certain entertainers have been taken advantage for years, but no longer — thanks to Trump. Can you believe it?” President Trump said after signing the Music Modernization Act. 
The new law, in part, also ensures that songwriters and artists get royalties on songs recorded before 1972. 
(MORE: The Music Modernization Act introduced in the House could change how artists are paid for streaming services )
Sam Moore called the bill "historic,” saying Trump got done what other presidents didn't.
The Music Modernization Act, rolled out Tuesday, will allow artists to receive fair market compensation for their songs that are played on digital streaming services, such as Spotify and Pandora.
For artists, like three-time Grammy Award winners Little Big Town, it offers relief to outdated laws.  "We’re incredibly encouraged that this long overdue bill to protect songwriters and the entire creative community is finally coming to fruition.
"The laws that were in place were completely antiquated and desperately needed to be changed in light of the digital world we live in now. This will be a big win for the Music community".
Copyright laws go back more than a century and have not been updated in years. "You have a 1909 statue trying to govern 2018 technology, and it doesn't work," John Simson, a professor at the American University and founding member of Sound Exchange, a non-profit organization set up to collect and distribute performance royalties.
The Music Modernization Act was introduced by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va. It combines the legislation introduced in December, under the same name, as well as the Allocation for Music Producers Act, which provides royalties for music producers; the CLASSICS Act, which provides royalties for songs created before 1972 from digital streaming services; and a watered-down Fair Play, Fair Pay Act, which does not include the provision that broadcast radio should pay for songs.
Corresponding bills have been introduced in the Senate championed by Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Orrin Hatch, R-Utah.
"Really each side is getting a win-win in the legislation," Daryl Friedman, chief industry, government and member relations officer for the Recording Academy.
But not all streaming services are on board with the proposed legislation.
“Proponents of this latest version of the Music Modernization Act will likely characterize it as consensus but that is simply untrue," SiriusXM said in a statement. "There were a number of unique and important perspectives which were specifically excluded from discussions, and we look forward to working with Congress to make sure those voices are heard. In its current form, this bill is anti-competitive and is harmful to the public interest and consumers.”
However, Simson believes the act is the "best solution to a complex problem."
The Music Modernization Act will also create an agency funded by streaming services that would have all of the music publishers under one roof. The digital streaming service would pay the agency that the act establishes, and it would track and collect royalties for the artist.
"The system for finding all of those publishers isn't as efficient as it could be," Friedman said. 
"The new Music Modernization Act updates the laws to make sure that the songwriters, producers, and artists who make the music that fans love, can be fairly compensated," Friedman continued.

"I'm for the bill," Simson said, adding that he's known as someone who has fought for artists before his time at the Sound Exchange.
The new legislation, according to Friedman, has received bipartisan support much like the first iteration of the act.

“Music creators, performers, and providers recognize that this bill is critical to ensuring the continued viability of the music industry in the 21st century," Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., who introduced the initial legislation in December 2017, said in a statement. "I look forward to helping the Judiciary Committee send the most significant music licensing updates in a generation to the House for its consideration.”

“This legislation is imperative in bridging the gap between one of the oldest forms of expression and art -- songwriting," the group said, "and the modern musical world which we now live in that is largely dictated by tech industries.”

With the president's signature, the Music Modernization Act is officially the law of the land. As we celebrate the harmony and unity that got us here, we applaud the efforts of the thousands of performers, songwriters, and studio professionals who rallied for historic change to ensure all music creators are compensated fairly when their work is used by digital and satellite music services," Neil Portnow, President and CEO of the Recording Academy said in a statement.

Ben Carson and Stacey Dash to Host Black Leadership Summit




Are they Really Trying to Represent the Black Community?  

 Ben Carson and Stacey Dash 

It looks as though Trump Supporters Ben Carson and Stacey Dash are on a mission to grab black votes in the electoral support for the current Presidency. 


The two are expected to host a Black Leadership Summit in Washington D.C from Oct 25- 28. This Summit is for young conservative blacks from ages 15 to 35 and is free and open to the public.


As appealing as this convention sounds, questions are being raised as to why either Ms. Dash or Mr. Carson would be a good choice at all being that they have made public statements against the black community in the past. Stacey Dash received a tremendous amount of backlash when she went on to BET saying there is no need for Black History Month. Ben Carson, the current Secretary of the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development; caused friction with his controversial commentary most recently claiming the allegations against supreme court justice Brett Kavanaugh were a century-old plot by socialist.


As if the two conservatives at hand weren't questionable enough, it has been said that the infamous Candace Owens will also present at this Summit as well.  Who would think with her political stance that seems to shift as time does. Owens made latest claims that the National Rifle Association was "founded to train blacks to protect themselves against the Klu Klux Klan." This caused a lot of uproar in the community as well.


This will be quite the Summit With these 3 having a Anti-Black Community tag against them.

  

The Question is Will you be in attendance?

Montel Williams Describes His Life-Threatening Stroke




 Montel Williams
I Didn’t Think That I Was Going to Recover From This





Williams quotes “A few minutes after 9 A.M. on May 30, 2018, Williams was in the middle of his third set of dumbbell squats in the gym. “I was on about rep 15, and I heard this ‘pop,’” Williams tells SELF”.

This past spring, typical workout session for Montel Williams took a scary turn when he found himself having a stroke in a New York City hotel gym. The television personality and host is speaking out about his health scare in order to help spark a conversation about stroke and stroke recovery.

“My first thought was, ‘There’s nobody in this gym, so where did that noise come from?’ So, I look to the left of me where I thought the pop came from, and there was nobody there," he says. "By the time I turn my head back around in front of me, the whole gym starts to kaleidoscope and I have this wave of exhaustion come over me.” The side of his mouth started to droop and he began to drool.

Williams realized immediately that he was having a stroke, thanks to an episode of The Dr. Oz Show that he caught a couple months earlier. “I thought, ‘Don’t tell me you just had a stroke. I just had a stroke!’” Williams says. Feeling off-balance and barely able to move his limbs, Williams grabbed onto the wall and made his way to the elevator and back up to the 14th floor of the hotel, where his wife was showering in their room. “When I walked in the room, I collapsed on the couch and I called out to her, ‘Tara! Call an ambulance right now and tell them your husband just had a stroke.'”



Fortunately for Williams, one of  New York-Presbyterian’s specially configured stroke unit emergency vehicles was three blocks away when his wife called 911. They were able to do a CAT scan immediately and video-chat with the hospital to determine the right course of treatment (which includes blood pressure medication to stem the bleeding). “A doctor appears on the video screen and says, ‘Mr. Williams, you did have a stroke, and in fact it’s still ongoing right now,’” he recalls.

Williams ultimately spent 21 days in the hospital, beginning in the ICU.

“I was barely lucid, in and out of consciousness. The first five days [in the ICU] were such a blur,” Williams says. “Most of what I remember from the first five days is that every time I woke up, my wife was just right there saying ‘I love you.’ And every time I went to sleep she was right there saying ‘I love you.’ And that's really what kept me going.”

The majority of strokes are ischemic, but Williams experienced a less common hemorrhagic stroke, or bleeding stroke, which account for about 13 percent of strokes, according to the American Stroke Association (ASA). A hemorrhagic stroke occurs when a weakened vessel ruptures, causing blood to accumulate into the local area and compress the surrounding brain tissue, per the ASA.



Williams’s bleed occurred in a particularly risky area. Dr. Stieg says, “Not only did he have a hemorrhagic stroke, but he had it in the back part of his brain, called the cerebellum, on the left side”—which is a brain region responsible for the coordination of body motion on the left side of the body. Because the compartment where the cerebellum sits is very small, bleeding here can be dangerous. “When you have an expanding blood clot, something has to give—and that’s the brain. That’s where you get not only the primary injury from the bleeding episode, but then you get a secondary injury because of the pressure that the mass of the blood clot causes,” Dr. Stieg explains. “That's what makes that a life-threatening condition.”

Although many hemorrhagic strokes are precipitated by lifestyle factors—like smoking, not exercising, not managing stress, or having chronically high blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood pressure—sometimes they occur spontaneously in perfectly healthy people like Williams, Dr. Stieg says. “It’s something that they call a transient event, where it can come out of nowhere,” Williams adds. “I had never, ever, ever in my life had a history of hypertension, high blood pressure, nothing.”



In addition to those lifestyle factors, genetic factors can contribute to stroke risk. “It’s very prevalent in African American males,” Williams notes. He also says that he may have had a blood vessel abnormality in his cerebellum. There are several blood vessel abnormalities that can exist from birth and predispose you to stroke, Dr. Stieg says.

Williams worked incredibly hard at his recovery.


After nine days in rehab at New York-Presbyterian, Williams spent six weeks doing intensive rehab at a facility two blocks away from his in-laws’ home in Jackson, Tenn. The early progress he saw from putting a lot of effort into the exercises inspired him to give rehab his all. “I noticed clearly, the third day of walking with the walker, that if I paid attention and did the things they were telling me to do, walking with that walker was a little easier.”



He also did exercises to combat nystagmus, a condition in which the eyes move involuntarily. “Both eyeballs were shaking like crazy,” he says. But he noticed small improvements after a couple of days of visual focusing exercises. “You get out of rehab what you put in," he adds.



Today, Williams is nearly back at 100 percent. “He probably will always know he had this event, but he’s near back to having a normal lifestyle,” Dr. Stieg says. “He’s worked really hard on his recovery.”

“We’re so afraid to talk about stroke in this country—we just don’t talk about it,” Williams says.



Part of changing the way we talk about strokes is changing the way we look at recovery. “Sometimes [strokes] can be devastating where people lose motor and speech function,” Dr. Stieg says. “But many times they regain function, and [Williams] is obviously an example of that … His is also a story of hope—which is the story of stroke.”

Williams wants people to understand that having a stroke or discussing the topic is not something to be embarrassed about. "It is something that happens in society and there is a way out of the depths of the darkest times,” he says.

Nearly fully recovered, Williams has returned to work. Last week, he shot the first episode of a show called Military Makeover: Operation Careers, which helps place vets in the workforce. But make no mistake, he is determined to take it easier these days, and spend more time with his wife, Tara. “As committed as she has been to being my caregiver, I need to commit to her,” he says. “I don’t want to miss out on another second with her.”


These days, he doesn’t stress out about the little stuff. “I’m not overreacting to things. What I screamed about three months ago, I’m not even slightly raising my blood pressure over today,” Williams says. And he’s started incorporating naps into his daily routine

TEKASHI 69 PISTOL WHIPPED, KIDNAPPED, ROBBED AND HOSPITALIZED



Tekashi69
 Pistol Whipped, Kidnapped, Robbed and Hospitalized
Breaking News: 

Tekashi69 was Robbed , Pistol whipped and Kidnapped and is now in the hospital - BTMB learned. Sources close to Tekashi tell us, the rapper was working on a music video in Brooklyn early Sunday morning and at around 4AM he wrapped for the night and drove home.  Sources told US when he got there another car pulled up and blocked his driveway.  They said that when 3 hooded gunmen got out of the other car, grabbed Tekashi and pistol whipped him ... knocking him unconscious.

 
Tekashi69 In Hospital


We're told the next thing Tekashi knew, he was in the back seat of the car as the gunmen were driving around, telling him if they didn't get what they wanted from him -- jewelry and money -- they would kill him.

Sources say a short time later, the gunmen pulled up to Tekashi's home and 2 of them made their way inside as the third guarded 69 inside the vehicle. 

The gunmen took around $750k in jewelry and between $15k and $20k in cash; We'er being told. While all this was happening, Tekashi's baby mama and daughter were inside the house but not hurt.

That wasn't the end of it.  We're told the gunmen then drove away with Tekashi still in the back seat.  At some point 69 was able to open the back door and jumped out.  One of the gunmen began chasing him but got scared and retreated because he was afraid he'd be ID'd.

Our sources say Tekashi jumped in the passenger seat of a stranger's vehicle and pleaded for help.  The stranger called 911 and then asked 69 to get out of the car at an intersection.

Responding ambulance came; reports say Tekashi was taken to a hospital, where he remains.  Doctors are performing various tests, including a CT scan.
