Photo Update: The Links, Incorporated, Third Humanitarian Trip To Jamaica 0 444

Montego Bay, St. James – A delegation from The Links, Incorporated, an organization of African-American women connected in friendship and service, returned to Montego Bay, Jamaica for their third humanitarian trip, part of a global linkage initiative, to enhance the education, health and welfare of the island nation’s schools and students. The group’s goals are to make a sustainable impact and create lasting partnerships in the island’s communities of need.
More than 180 Links and their families—a record number of attendees— made the journey, bringing various school supplies, including 160 Kindle Fire tablets, to support youth technology interests and efforts. The delegation led by the organization’s national president, medical doctor Glenda Newell-Harris, focused on five program areas: technology presentations, anti-bullying training, arts, oral and physical hygiene, and CPR training for 4-6th graders.
Members devoted over 5,000 service hours and invested nearly one million dollars into the Jamaican economy over the three years.  The organization’s hope is to leave Jamaica better for their efforts.
Here’s a pictorial highlight of their activities for mission trip 2018:

MUST WATCH: Newly Released Undercover Video Shows Buju Banton Tasting Cocaine In Florida Warehouse. 0 216

ABC News – Buju Banton is set to be released in a matter of months, but the cocaine-trafficking case against him still infuriates his most ardent supporters, who believe he landed behind bars after being set-up and seduced by a U.S. government informant.

“He was entrapped. Just follow the case,” one longtime fan, 55-year-old Alvin Walfall of Bowie, Maryland, said. “It was entrapment.”

Walfall is one of nearly 5,000 people who signed onto a series of online petitions calling for Banton’s freedom and questioning the case against him.

For years, U.S. officials demanded that a key piece of evidence — undercover video from Banton’s last meeting with the informant — stay under seal, hidden from public view. But ABC News appealed to a federal judge, and the video has now been unsealed.

It offers the most complete account of how Banton, 44, ended up in a U.S. prison, convicted of two counts for his role in a conspiracy to sell cocaine.

VIDEO: Flourgon and Legal Team Explains Basis of 300 Million Copyright Lawsuit Over ‘We Can’t Stop’ 0 220

Kingston, Jamaica – News emerged in March that a Copyright Lawsuit was filed in New York against American Pop artist Miley Cyrus claiming her 2013 hit “We Can’t Stop” used the lyric “we run things, things nuh run we” without permission from its owner Michael May who performs under the name Flourgon.

“We Can’t Stop” was the lead track from Cyrus’ 2013 album “Bangerz” co-written and produced by Mike Will Made-It, P-Nasty and Rock City. In the lawsuit, Flourgon is accusing Miley and her label, RCA Records, of misappropriating his lyrics and profiting from the same.

In this first video interview since the lawsuit was filed, Flourgon’s legal team explained the basis for the lawsuit and the hefty 300 million claim for punitive damages.

In the interview, the lawyers claim bias on the part of Cyrus and her production team as they gave credit to two other American artists Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick for the use of a variation of their iconic 1985 hit “La Di Da Di” but not Flourgon for his “We run things, thing nuh run we”.
