One Vibe Africa Presents: Year Of Return (Trailer)

From the U.S. back to Kenya. Yes indeed.

You KNOW we are about travel abroad (e.g. from The States to overseas destinations). But this one hits home. As in Mother Africa, being home to ALL humanity and civilization. And this… this is epic. Of course, you know plenty of Sisters and Brothers who have declared that ‘one day’ they are going to make that pilgrimage back Home. Making it a big deal; maybe ‘too big’ a deal. But what if that ‘pilgrimage’ was less of a ‘trip’ to take. Like, let’s just say the family, the homies, the homegirls… are going to make it to an awesome event… and take in some of The Motherland while over that way. We could do that, right? We already do it for other festivals.

And like those other festivals, maybe we make it a yearly thing; or trips more often if we find things over there that draw us back.

Moving Madaraka Festival from Seattle back to Kenya signified the importance of not only arranging for individuals to travel back to Africa as it was with the case of Ghana’s year of return initiative, but getting significant events back to Africa and keeping them in Africa as a way to build a sustainable bridge allowing people of all backgrounds to travel to Africa to enjoy a festival of a lifetime, immerse themselves in the African culture, and inspire global change and collaboration towards mitigating climate change, which does not only threaten the climate but is an existential threat to our music, culture, and livelihood.

Dope music and culture do it again. Let’s get together; for the community and the cause. It’s a Vibe. One Vibe Africa! Matter of fact, why not show love and SUPPORT right now: Cop the EP (linked below) #ForTheYouth #ForKisumu #ForKenya #ForOurWorld

Hit the jump for more on that. The fam Mazzi really blessed with the knowledge on this one. Knowledge and blessing right to mobile #Mobilize

Black History: Black Hockey Players… Old News. Black Polo Players… Say What? (Video)

When you watch this, substitute references to ‘polo’ with football, basketball, rap music… the stuff we’re supposed to be into… and you’ll start to really get it; and why the kids that succeed in polo would likely succeed in any endeavor given a chance to fall in love with and be good at it!

In Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park, young people have found a path, and purpose, through polo. In Why I Play, The Undefeated documents the journeys of two young trailblazers who have dominated a sport that has long been considered an exclusive country club pursuit of privilege for centuries, while exploring the role youth sports play in the Black community as a means of opportunity and empowerment.

Technology: Industrial Robot Vs. Sword Master (Video)

So. One step away from autonomous killer robot. We are just gonna hand The Terminator’s great-great-grandpa a sword and hope he doesn’t kill the human opponent on some ‘are you not entertained’ ish??

Yaskawa Electric Corporation conveys to the world the “manufacturing spirit” inherited continuously in itself to mark its 100th anniversary of foundation.

In “YASKAWA BUSHIDO PROJECT”, we reproduced Machii’s swordplay with MOTOMAN-MH24, while challenging the industrial robot’s performance limitations by integrating “legerity”, “accuracy” and “agility” at a high level. Machii retains many world records like “cutting a 6mm BB bullet”, and his swordplay has a reputation of theurgist. In this project, we also tried to express the courtesy and considerateness that Bushido has cherished.

– [Yaskawa Electric] e-mechanical site

Oh. So the man vs robot is not a head up thing, it’s more like a I-can-do-IT-can-do-too demonstration situation. Cool. But, um, anybody notice that the machine is the one NOT sweating at the end? Just saying. Dope presentation. But just saying… to our future sword-swing techno-overlords… We cool. HA!

(Consider that this vid is almost 5 years old. Imagine what the robo-sword game is like now!)

State Of The Culture: Season 2, Episode 11 (Video)

You know what. There is some good, DOPE media being made out here nowadays. Not huge in scale, so some (read: many) might miss it. But I am watching, and highlighting it as I come across it. Much richer than a ‘Black Entertainment Tonight’… This episode of State Of The Culture is epic. Plus, the eye candy on the bookends (Eboni K. Williams & Remy Ma though… mm mm MM)!

On the 11th episode of Season 2, Joe Budden and co-hosts Remy Ma, Jinx & Eboni K. Williams sound off on the following topics: Kobe Bryant’s Legacy (6:42), Wendy Williams (34:19), Community heroes (39:20), Oscar’s diversity (40:45), Janet Jackson (50:40), Lil Wayne’s album ‘Funeral’ (54:12), Drake (56:32), Quentin Miller (59:58), Lil Pump retiring (1:04:37), Jussie Smollett being indicted (1:05:11), Who Said That? (1:10:51), 20 Years Since Big Pun’s Passing (1:21:00).

College Student Opens Her Own Restaurant In NYC Serving Scrumptious Vegan Cuisine (Video)

Man. Why am I drooling over VEGAN chicken & waffles though. These in the video at least…

Francesca Chaney is a 22-year-old college kid with her own vegan restaurant. She swears by plant-based meals and wants to normalize them for underprivileged neighborhoods. Her restaurant, Sol Sips, is in Brooklyn, NY, and its menu is comprised of delicious, healthy eats.

Because Francesca is all about accessibility, she offers a sliding-scale brunch where customers can pay anywhere from $7 to $15 for their full meal. She hopes her mission of educating people about healthy eating grows into more Sol Sips locations and a healthier mindset for underserved communities.

– Food Insider

And she is getting her Styles P juice bar on with her approach to bringing healthy eats to the otherwise overlooked. Nice!
