    LIVE:Unprofessional behaviour of REGGAE Artistes chases major record Lables

    in Music

    No pay, no game - Unprofessional behaviour of artistes chases away major record labels.The '70s,'80s and early '90s were the glory days of Jamaican music, with several of the island's artistes inking record deals with esteemed and internationally acclaimed recording labels, including Island Records, CBS Records, Colombia Records, EMI, Rolling Stones Records, among others. Fast-forward to 2015, one can't help but wonder, where have all the major labels gone?


    Veteran entertainment manager Copeland Forbes believes major labels severed ties with Jamaican artistes because of unprofessionalism and a lack of vision. The effect of the anti-Jamaican music campaign led by the homosexual community was also brought under the microscope.


    According to the man who has represented icons like Beres Hammond, Gregory Isaacs, The Wailers, Peter Tosh, Ziggy Marley, Sugar Minott, among others, during his career, Jamaican artistes need to be taught proper business ethics and attitude. He also credited Shaggy's success to his ability to make good business decisions.


    "Some of these artistes, if you tell them to go overseas to do some promotions, if dem nah get paid, dem nah guh. Mi see me and Shaggy just reach New York from Japan on a 15-hour flight and he received a call saying his song just took off in England and they needed him to make an appearance. The same night,  Shaggy took a flight to England and it was free because it's promotion. But some of these artistes won't do that. Dem a guh tell yu sey dem have to go home to eat, and do this and that. So the major labels are there to help us, but we must pull our weight too," he said

    LeBron James Coach Dru Joyce is featured on Life Lessons

    in Lifestyle

    Coach Dru Joyce.  Joyce coached, mentored and served as a father figure to LeBron James and remains one of the most successful high school basketball coaches in America.   He's also a follower of Christ and author of a new book, 'Beyond Championships: A Playbook for Winning at Life' 


    ** MENTORSHIP, STEWARDSHIP, SERVANT-HEARTEDNESS:    LeBron James, one of the wealthiest and most popular athletes on earth, says ‘the principle that Coach Dru instilled in me that has probably impacted me the most is to always have the heart of a servant.’   How important was that lesson for a boy that would grow to have what LeBron would have -- an empire --in terms of influence and money and power? 


    **  HUMILITY:  For Coach Joyce, losing in the Ohio state finals as a 1st year coach, with LeBron James, the nation's #1 ranked team and as the subject of a Sports Illustrated cover story (LeBron and the team at St. Vincent St. Mary) provided a lesson in humility.  Particularly when the newspapers placed the loss on his shoulders.   Great lesson in dealing with disappointment and expectations, harsh words from others. 



    **  GOD HAS A PLAN:  Coach Joyce had never coached a basketball game in his life, but at the age of 42, left a decades-old position at ConAgra with a great deal of security to do what he felt called to do.   It wasn't easy and it took faith in the Lord and the courage to move, cooperate with His plan. Courage to leave security behind.   So, for people who feel stuck  -- this story is an encouraging one.  Over the course of the last decade, he's proven to be one of the most successful high school coached in America.

    SATURDAY HIGH NOON

    in Politics

    What's the matter with Kansas? "The Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy recently reported that Kansas has the ninth-most unfair tax system in the county.  A Kansan earning $47,700 a year pays 9.5 percent of income in state and local taxes; but someone earning $1,191,700 pays an effective rate of just 3.6 percent."


    So much for the 'trickle down' libertarian economic theories masterminded by the Wichita plutocrats Charles & David Koch; and implemented by Gov. Sam Brownback and his cronies in the state legislature.


    Here is a very informative article by Larry Weigel recently featured at the Women for Kansas web site "Bleeding Kansas – Revenue shortfall will require grassroots leadership to deal with crisis".  Mr. Weigel has appeared multiple times on Radio Free Kansas and in this article describes who, how and why Kansas has entered this dangerous phase of reactionary policies, self-imposed austerity and regressive taxation.


    Naomi Fowler's latest world wide informative "Tax Cast" from the Tax Justice Network (30 min. ca.) SUMMARY: Do our politicians believe in the societies they serve or not? The Taxcast looks at making the tax returns of our elected representatives public and the inspirational achievement of journalist Umar Cheema of  the Centre for Investigative Reporting in making Pakistan only the fourth country in the world to publish the tax returns of its Parliamentarians. Also: how the British general election demonstrates political capture by finance interests; libertarian paradise – the world's newest tax haven; and is Singapore trying to shut down reporting on its tax haven status?
