Photo credit: flickr.comHip Hop artist Keldamuzik aka Diva from California, is known to not only be a successful independent recording artist, with chart topping international and national hits such as “Thirsty”, “I Don’t Care” and “Wind Blow”; but also an entrepreneur who has created a platform for herself with her company Golddigga Entertainment, managed by marketing manager Wendy Bell. Making her mark in the music industry, Diva presents “The Cultural Exchange Tour”. TCET is a non-profit tour that promotes mutual understanding of cultural backgrounds through music, youth development and knowledge of international social living. The first part of the tour took place in Antigua, where Diva participated in the Launching of “Saga 51 TV”, presented by Super Power Electronics & Beauty Salon. Diva was the first artist to empower the ladies and get them out of their seats at the launching by engaging them with her single “Get up N Get It”. Follow up engagements in the tour included an appearance on “Good Morning Antigua” as well as a feature in the Antigua Observer.Keldamuzik was inspired to start TCET when receiving invitations to perform and experience islands such as Barbados and St. Maarten, where she gained knowledge of the Caribbean lifestyle. During both tours, she collaborated with Reggae singer Kirk Brown, and artist Ku-J, while also conducting a series of workshops at schools and non-profit organizations to inspire the youth. She also interviewed local business owners, brands and the towns people for her reality TV series, Diva TV which broadcast in 5 million homes in California, U.S. After such visits around the islands, radio stations and other media outlets, Keldamuzik’s movement concluded with live concert performances featuring Keldamuzik and other local artists in the areas. Many sponsors came aboard to support and accommodate the concerts as well as advancing other businesses and raising funds for local charities and youth foundations. Both tours lasted 5-7 days separately, and were broadcasted on Diva TV back in California. In the mist of it all, Diva combined all of her areas of creation and talents into one. Speaking to the youth and inspiring them to become confident individuals is what she calls “The Diva Project.” She loves to empower the youth and relate her previous living situation with theirs and being able to have a mutual understanding by Q&A’s from those who need someone influential to talk with. Conducting interviews of the natives and taping her journey through various activities in the country is what her reality show “Diva TV” contributes. In California she broadcasts her life as a female rapper in the Hip Hop industry and other Keldamuzik related events. As she receives many viewers around California and the internet, Keldamuzik has already beaten the odds as an independent artist who showcases the art form of networking through television. By hosting a live concert, Keldamuzik performs various songs of her own, and with the native artists she collaborates with. She grabs the attention of the community and they realize how much more enriched their lives are through TCET. The people already uplift each other, but uplifting the community and granting them exposure is the primary function of “The Cultural Exchange Tour”. We have more upcoming events featuring Diva in Grenada, Jamaica, St. Vincent, Trinidad and more!

Wins by Larson, Shryock headline Jackson Nationals

first_imgWins by Larson, Shryock headline Jackson NationalsJACKSON, Minn. (Sept. 28) ­– Dustin Larson was the big winner dollar-wise Saturday at Jackson Speedway while Kelly Shryock’s run to the checkers put him on the ballot for one of IMCA’s highest profile races. The two joined Cory Probst, Matt Looft and Megan Lappegard as IMCA winners at the 35th annual Jackson Nationals. Larson earned $1,500 for his IMCA Sunoco Stock Car victory, part of the Doug Cellan Memorial, while $1,100 checks went to Shryock in the IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modifieds, Probst in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks and Looft in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods. Lappegard’s Mach-1 Sport Compact checkers were good for $500.Larson drew the pole start and stayed in front all 20 laps in the Stock Car main. He made the most of the middle line in outrunning Roger Verdoorn to the checkers for his 17th victory of the season. Jim Larson, Ken Tietz and Andy Altenburg were next across the stripe. Shryock didn’t get to the front until the 20th and final circuit in the Modified main. He’d been part of the pursuit behind Roger Nielsen. A caution had erased his move past Mark Noble and into second with six to go before he rallied to catch Tad Reutzel coming out of the first set of turns and win the dash to the checkers. “It was an exciting race,” the first-time Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifier said. “There were a lot of good cars and any one of them could have won it.” Reutzel, Josh Meyer, Clayton Christensen and Greg Jacobsen completed the top five.Three early cautions stymied the start of the Hobby Stock feature. Probst led start to finish, taking the checkers comfortably ahead of Cory Gansen and gaining some atonement for a $1,000 to win race earlier this season at Redwood Speedway he’d been leading but fell out of the running with the white flag out and a flat tire. Malik Sampson, Jeremy Wagner and Justin Luinenburg were next across the stripe.Looft needed four laps to take the lead from his outside row two starting spot in the SportMod main. A green, white, checkered finish made it a bit hairy end as Jason Fisher kept the pressure on all the way to the end. Scored next were Randy Winter, Nick Dieter and Carter Shumski. The win at Jackson was the second of what turned out to be three victories over the weekend for Looft. The fastest in a 21-car field, Lappegard started outside the front row and led every lap in a time-shortened contest. Her 12th victory of the season came ahead of Cory Flanigan, Kaytee Mawson, Ryan Bryant and Terry Blowers. Feature Results Stock Cars – 1. Dustin Larson; 2. Roger Verdoorn; 3. Jim Larson; 4.

Andy Ruiz Jr slams Tyson Fury after partying jibe

first_imgRelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Saudi may have enough uranium deposits to make nuclear fuel – Reports Anthony Joshua, Okolie plot world title double Andy Ruiz Jr has hit back at Tyson Fury after the latter claimed he has been partying too much following his shock victory against Anthony Joshua. Ruiz shocked the boxing world in June when he knocked Joshua down four times before a seventh-round stoppage victory in New York. Ruiz has returned to training ahead of an agreed rematch in Saudi Arabia in December but Fury believes he has been living the high-life too much since. The former heavyweight champion said: “If Andy Ruiz comes in in-shape and has trained, then I think he does the same again. “But one thing I know is AJ trains hard and he dedicates his life to boxing. “I know that Ruiz has been running around in a lot of Rolls Royces and doing a lot of TV shows, eating a lot of tacos and he’s not been in the gym for two-and-a-half months. “I’ve been speaking to the guys and nobody’s seen him.” But Ruiz insists he will be ready to take on Joshua and beat him again in December. “Everyone’s gonna say this and that, but at the end of the day they don’t know s*** but what they see on Instagram,” he said. “We working. I want them to sleep on me again and think I’m just partying. We coming hard.”— Tags: Andy RuizAnthony JoshuaJrNew YorkPartying jibeSaudi Arabialast_img read more

Evra: RVP was right to quit Arsenal

first_img Press Association Evidently, the affection is not reciprocated by the Arsenal fans, who gave their former captain a torrid time. Evra cannot understand why, given Van Persie did so much to advance the Gunners’ cause during his time with the club, but he thinks winning the championship this year proves the 29-year-old has no need to reproach himself. He added: “I still don’t understand why the fans boo him. I am disappointed that the fans have quickly forgotten what he did for the club. I think he felt it as well.” Van Persie’s goal took him within one of the 30 barrier, and in netting 25 in the Premier League the Dutchman has broken the record for most league goals in a debut campaign for United. “He has a chance to reach 30,” said United manager Sir Alex Ferguson. “If he does that it justifies all our faith and hope in him.” It could be argued the move has worked out well for both parties, given United’s success has not seen Arsenal collapse in the manner so many felt likely. Indeed, as Chelsea and Tottenham still have to face each other and Arsenal’s final three games are against teams who have either been relegated – QPR – or battling to avoid the drop – Wigan and Newcastle – they should preserve their long-held top-four status. Although aggrieved United did not claim the victory he felt they deserved, Evra was impressed by the hosts’ battling qualities, and he added: “hey were one of the most aggressive teams I have played against. It was good to see Arsenal like that. They always get abuse about being a team with good football but not being aggressive enough. This time they were.” Having spent eight years in north London before switching to United last summer, Van Persie’s affection for the Gunners runs deep. The striker, who almost walked into the home dressing room following his arrival at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, opted not to celebrate the penalty equaliser and then went for a chat with his old team-mates after the 1-1 draw. “He hasn’t made the wrong choice,” said Evra. “It was a long time that he didn’t win the league (at Arsenal). He has come to Manchester United and won it.” center_img Manchester United defender Patrice Evra believes Robin van Persie’s status as Barclays Premier League title winner proves he made the right choice to quit Arsenal for Old Trafford.last_img read more

State Lawmaker Wants Judge in Absent Juror Case to be Investigated

first_imgA state lawmaker from our area is asking the Florida Judicial Qualifications Commission to investigate a Palm Beach County judge who recently sentenced a man to 10 days in jail for not showing up for jury duty.Democratic State Senator Bobby Powell, Jr. of West Palm Beach filed a complaint regarding Judge John S. Kastrenakes.The judge sentenced DeAndre Somerville to 10 days in jail, gave him him one year probation, and ordered him to complete 150 hours of community service and write an apology letter after he failed to appear for the first day of testimony in a civil trial last August. Kastrenakes says Somerville showed up in court more than a week later, after he was summoned and had already been sworn in to serve.When Somerville read an apology in court, the judge reduced the probation from one year to three months, with conditions.Last weekend, Kastrenakes announced that he had vacated his finding of contempt and rescinded further punishment of Powell. Senator Powell says in a statement, “The judge later rescinded his original punishment after succumbing to public scrutiny. According to Florida’s Code of Judicial Conduct, a judge shall perform judicial duties without bias or prejudice and shall not be swayed by partisan interests, public clamor, or fear of criticism. Judge Kastrenakes has evidently violated the Code of the Judicial Conduct and has engaged in misfeasance in his official duties as the 15th Judicial Circuit Court Judge.” He adds, “Judge Kastrenakes acted in an unprecedented manner to unfairly punish one individual for a minor transgression, singling him out as an example solely because of his race.”Powell is requesting that the Judicial Qualifications Commission investigate the judge and discipline or remove him from the bench.last_img read more

Reeling USC will try to end losing streak

first_imgUSC looks to snap its six-game losing streak tonight at Dedeaux Field when it hosts UC Santa Barbara in non-conference action at 7 p.m.The Trojans (15-20, 2-10) suffered their second straight series sweep last weekend — this time at the hands of   Pac-10 leader Arizona State. After taking a 4-1 lead in the first inning of Sunday’s series finale, USC allowed 11 unanswered runs to the Sun Devils (31-3, 9-3) and dropped its 10th game in its last 13 contests by a score of 14-6.Slick fielding · Sophomore infielder Ricky Oropesa leads the Trojans in a number of statistical categories, including home runs and RBI. Oropesa has also been solid for the USC in the field, holding a .997 fielding percentage on 307 chances. – Katelynn Whitaker | Daily Trojan USC coach Chad Kreuter has a few options that he can turn to for starters tonight. Sophomore right-hander Chad Smith lasted only one and one-third innings in Sunday’s outing, allowing five runs on five hits with two walks.Junior righty Logan Odom pitched two innings of relief Sunday, but he might be ready to start tonight as well. Odom (0-0, 6.14 ERA) last started against Cal State Bakersfield on April 7 where he gave up two runs in two innings.Kreuter could also go with senior Kevin Couture — who did not start over the weekend but pitched in relief Sunday — or senior Shuhei Fujiya, who failed to record an out in his only start of the season March 30 against Loyola Marymount.The Gauchos (16-14, 3-3) come into tonight’s contest having dropped their weekend series to Cal State Fullerton after losing the rubber game Sunday 6-1.UCSB will likely start junior Greg Davis. In his last start against Loyola Marymount, Davis (1-0, 2.63 ERA) lasted three innings without giving up a hit. He struck out three.UCSB is batting .291 on the season with a staff ERA of 5.02, compared to USC’s team average of .284 and 4.75 ERA.Sophomore infielder Ricky Oropesa continues to pace the way for the Trojans’ offense, leading the team in batting average (.321), hits (45), doubles (12), home runs (11) and RBI (34). He is also second on the team with 29 runs scored.On the other side, the Gauchos have a few top hitters USC pitchers need to keep in check. Five of their starters have a batting average of .297 or better.Infielder Matt Valaika leads the Gauchos with a .327 batting average, 24 runs scored and 25 RBI, to go along with his four home runs. Infielder Trevor Whyte is tied for second on the team with 21 RBI. He also sports a .309 batting average. Infielder Gunnar Terhune has a .304 average, 23 runs scored, 21 RBI and six stolen bases.USC is hoping to notch a much-needed win tonight before it travels to Eugene, Ore., to take on the Ducks this weekend. The Trojans have yet to win a Pac-10 series this season.last_img read more

USC captures season opening series against Utah Valley

first_imgFreshman infielder Ben Ramirez takes a swing against Utah Valley. Alex Zhang | Daily TrojanThe USC baseball team opened its season Friday at Dedeaux Field against Utah Valley University, the beginning of a three-game home stand. The Trojans entered opening day looking to rebound from a disappointing 2017 season in which the team went 21-34 and finished tied for last in the Pac-12 standings. USC would win the opening series 2-1.The bats on both sides were sluggish to start the season. Sophomore Chris Clarke and senior Jake Mayer, the starters for USC and Utah Valley respectively, were dealing in the early innings. Through four frames, the teams combined for eight strikeouts and five hits. The Trojans began the first three innings with hits, only to be followed by threestraight-outs each time.Utah Valley struck first, as first baseman Callahan Moltzan scored from second on a triple by third baseman Paul Estrada in the top of the fifth. Right fielder Jackson Overlund followed with a three-run home run off of Clarke in the sixth, making it 4-0 Wolverines. The Trojans mustered 1 run in the bottom of the sixth when junior left fielder Lars Nootbaar scored on an error, but the Trojans couldn’t keep momentum. A passed ball with a runner on third in the top of the seventh made it 5-1 Utah Valley, and the Wolverines held on to win by that score.“Their kid did a nice job, but we didn’t swing the bats like we’re capable of,” USC head coach Dan Hubbs said. “Whether it was first game jitters, excitement, whatever it was, it wasn’t like us.”Sophomore center fielder Matthew Acosta was one of several Trojans to go hitless on Friday. “It felt like nothing was going our way today, but you know, that’s going to happen in baseball,” Acosta said. “It’s a game of failure, you have to go through adversity.”For much of the second game on Saturday, it seemed that the result would be the same. The Wolverines took advantage of a shaky outing by junior starting pitcher Quentin Longrie, scoring two of their three second-inning runs on walks with the bases loaded.But the Trojans weren’t dead. With USC down 4-0 in the fifth inning, Nootbaar homered to right field. Two innings later, after sophomore right fielder Brady Shockey scored on a wild pitch, Acosta put the Trojans up by one with a 3-run bomb to right field.“I was looking for a fastball up, something I could elevate so a runner could tag up,” Acosta said of the play. “But I just got one I could control and put a good swing on it. [It was] just lucky I got one, lucky to help the team get the W. That’s all that matters.”The Wolverines got a possible game-tying runner to second with one out in the top of the ninth, but sophomore reliever Connor Lunn struck out the next two hitters to end the game with the save. Freshman reliever John Beller earned his first win as a Trojan.The Trojans opened the scoring in Sunday’s third game in the bottom of the second inning when junior first baseman Dillon Paulson scored on an error. The Wolverines responded by scoring 3 runs in the top of the third.After trading runs in the next two half innings, USC surged ahead in the bottom of the fifth. With the bases loaded and no outs, Shockey singled up the middle, driving in Paulson and redshirt junior third baseman Angelo Armenta. A bunt single from redshirt sophomore catcher Kaleb Murphy turned into a score on an errant throw from Utah Valley third baseman Paul Estrada, allowing Ramirez to score from second.Junior second baseman Brandon Perez came through with his second and third RBIs of the day on a two-out single up the middle, bringing in Shockey and Murphy. Sophomore designated hitter Blake Sabol’s grand rule double to center scored Perez, bringing the Trojans’ runs in the inning to 6, making the score 8-4.“We were just trying to get a couple on the board just to get us some momentum going into the next innings,” Perez said of the onslaught. “Luckily we put up a big lopsided number and that usually ends up resulting in a win.”With 12 total hits, USC looked like a completely different team than the one that was blanked by Utah Valley in the season opener. “I thought the guys put good at-bats together,” Hubbs said. “We were able to get some free bases and then came up with a couple big hits. I was just excited about the at-bats the guys took throughout the game.”But nothing came easy for the Trojans this series, and this game was no different. A triple from Overlund and a sacrifice fly from catcher Drew Sims cut the USC lead to 2 runs in the seventh inning. Those would be the final runs of the game, however, as Lunn would close out the ninth for his second-straight save. Junior reliever Solomon Bates picked up the win.The bullpen was the saving grace for the Trojans; of the 15 runs Utah Valley scored across three games, the bullpen was only responsible for three, and shut the Wolverines down in Saturday’s nail-biter when they were needed the most.“All in all, I thought our bullpen was fantastic,” Hubbs said. “I was really pleased with what I saw. They came in and attacked the strike-zone for the most part. They all have good stuff and know how to use it, so that was definitely a bright spot.”On the flip side, Hubbs singled out the starting pitching as an area for improvement. “We’ve got to get our starters throwing the way they’re capable of,” he said. “We’ve got to have longer starts so our bullpen isn’t going five innings every game.” With a young team, there are going to be ups and downs. Hubbs is more focused on how his players respond to the rough patches.“The biggest thing was the resiliency of the guys,” he said of the series. “They were able to bounce back after losing the first game. I think that’ll go a long way for the rest of the year for this team.”last_img read more
