    Adrien Broner vs Shawn Porter Preview

    in Sports

    Without question Adrien Broner vs Shawn Porter, on paper, is one of the more even match ups Premier Boxing Champions has delivered. Even if it's not good, we're basically being saturated with televised boxing cards. Enough that sub-par match ups can be ignored? No, but close. Apart from the #PBConNBC show, Roc Nation Sports makes its BET network debut with Andre Ward vs Paul Smith, on FoxSports, David Lemieux faces Hassan N'Dam, and on a rare Sunday show, CBS airs Antonio DeMarco vs Rances Barthelemy. That's without even going into the recapping we need to do... Erislandy Lara vs Delvin Rodriguez from Spike, Nicholas Walters vs Miguel Harriaga on HBO, Deontay Wilder barely surviving Eric Molina on Showtime. There's a ton. As usual, it's James Foley of Bad Left Hook and Patrick Connor of The Fight City bringing it all. Thanks for tuning in!

    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey RETURNS - with the extraordinary James Lloyd!

    in Music

    Let's face it - we've all been gaga over Pieces of a Dream for DECADES!  So many of us bless the day that drummer Curtis Harmon and bassist Cedric Napoleon got together with our gifted guest: the amazing keyboardist, James Lloyd.  If you can believe it, that was circa 1976!  Teenagers in Philadelphia, this trio rocked the tri-state area.  The name originated from a cover tune by Stanley Turrentine.  The guys thought "Pieces of a Dream" would also fit the image that they were creating in the City of Brotherly Love.


    WRTI, Temple University's radio station, supported the group's efforts.  So did a local saxophonist who had cultivated a HUGE name of his own.  Grover Washington, Jr., was taken with Pieces when he saw them on a local TV show called "City Lights." Pretty groovy when you're THAT young and in the House Band for artists passing through town :)  When this buzzworthy musical unit made their way to the respected Bijou in Philly, Grover made it a point to sit in with them.  AND he formed a production company, announcing that POAD would be his first act.  Whew!


    James has been associated with his group for so long that we might forget that he has his own identity.  He has written, co-written and/or produced for a LONG time.  Ask Hiroshima or Najee what they think of James Lloyd!  He has strong memories of being involved in superlative projects, too - including albums by Phyllis Hyman and Ornette Coleman.


    Piano lessons at six, classically trained and loving Jazz at age 12.  There's a whole lot more wrapped up in that man's soul - after all, he IS from Philly!  Listen to the beautiful colors on "Here We Go", released recently on Shanachie.  We'll talk about his work AND his appearance - with Pieces - at the DuPont Clifford Brown Jazz Festival!  Join us on 6/16!

    The Bad Seed - Health Risks & Side Effects of GMO’s

    in Nutrition

    Genetically Modified Organisms are a HOT topic all over the world and with an estimated 2 million people joining the international March Against Monsanto a couple of weeks ago, the spotlight is on genetic engineering of crops more than ever!


    With the "Big 6" pesticide and GMO corporations  BASF, Bayer, Dupont, Dow Chemical Company, Monsanto, and Syngenta pumping billions of dollars into lobbying anti labelling laws, suing small organic farmers because their proprietary GMO crops have “migrated” onto their fields (more like contaminated) and prohibiting independent research and gagging independent researchers from speaking out about the finds they are making with respect to health issues, it is no wonder that people are more concerned than ever. What are they trying to hide anyway? If GMOs are so good for us and the environment then why not be transparent about it?


    Even though the topic of GMO’s and glyphosate is huge and could never be covered adequately in a mere 30 minutes, Dr. Budweiser, founder of Weiser Living, will discuss the reasons why we at Weiser Living are completely and totally against the growing and consumption of GMO’s and the use of the glyphosate pesticide known as RoundUp.


    He will be discussing the following points:



    What Are GMOs?
    Glyphosate –Far More Toxic Than They Said
    10 Studies That Show GMO’s Are Harmful
    Why GMO’s Can Never Be Safe
    Can GMO’s REALLY Feed The World?
    GMO Labelling
    Top 10 GMO Foods & How To Avoid Them


    all this & much much more!

    Mrs Victoria Chitungu - Director; Moto Moto Museum

    in Education

    Mrs Victoria Chitungu serves as the Director at the Moto Moto Museum located in Mbala which is in the Northern Province of Zambia. The Museum houses a collection of artifacts related to Zambian culture, first collected by Canadian priest Jean Jacques Corbeil in the 1940s for study and posterity, were stored in the Mulilansolo Mission until 1964, when they were moved to Serenje, Zambia until 1969, then to Isoka. The current site, a former carpentry and bricklaying workshop, was donated by the Diocese of Mbala in 1972, to serve as a museum. When it opened in 1974, it was named the Moto Moto museum, after French Catholic Bishop Joseph Dupont, nicknamed Moto Moto, who began the White Fathers missionary in northern Zambia, where he worked from 1885 to 1911. Mrs Chitungu joins us to discuss the rich history and artifacts the Meseum offers, the numerous tourist attraction Mbala and the region generally offers & what the Zambian community in the Diaspora can do to promote the area.
