Why Have We Not Gone Back To The Moon? Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson Answers (Video)

Still won’t put down conspiracy theorists, but Neil deGrasse Tyson offers a really reasonable response to rumors of lunar landing fakery, to beliefs of America’s leadership in the field of space exploration, to general inquiry about the motivations for going into space in the first place (the moon, Mars and beyond).

Science: Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Take on Aliens And Why We Should Become A Multiplanetary Species (Video)

Worried about the possibility of aliens enslaving us based on the way WE (humans) have acted throughout history? You would not be alone. Great minds hold that opinion, too. Minds like Dr. Stephen Hawking (like many others) assume that any advanced culture would conquer one it finds inferior. Dr. Tyson respectfully (and optimistically) disagrees.

Neil deGrasse Tyson responds to Stephen Hawkings view on aliens. He also discusses artificial intelligence.
– JRE Clips

Great heady theoretical talk that we can all follow. Cool.

Trina Talks About ‘Catty’ Women, A New Album With Trick Daddy, And Starring On ‘Love & Hip Hop: Miami’ (Video)

Hmm… Gotta love Trina for her lasting, lovely looks. Still beautiful after all these years. Bringing sexiness to Hip-Hop circles for certain.

But you know, many would say the same about Amber Rose. So, okay, The Drink Champs can now boast that BOTH have been on the show. And both (you’ll see) made great guests. Very engaging convo as the libations flow.

Don’t take ANY of your freedoms in this day and age for granted. If you are not locked up, especially, you may not even be aware of how easy access to Internet ‘stardom’ is for you.

Amber Rose Speaks On Her Life Journey From Poor Girl From Philly To Being Famous (Video)

People would be on the Internet were like, “You’re famous for no reason!” And I’m like yeah, I don’t f*cking know why. Blame yourselves.
Amber Rose

You know her for the music videos and racy photos, being with Wiz Khalifa and Kanye West, the Slutwalk, and all that. And hate it or love it, Amber’s look… all that (platinum blonde ‘buzzcut’ down to that triple platinum Triple X butt)! And Amber talks about all that with the Drink Champs (N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN).

I know everybody may not be a fan of Rose. Some may even question why the Hip-Hop nation puts so much ‘shine’ on what she has to say (on some ‘your job is to just look sexy’ ish). Buuuut she is a prominent figure (pause, reflect, give thanks) on the Hip-Hop landscape. And buuuut that BUTTTT (even though it is not ‘featured’ above)!

Hahaaaa! Nah, but I do like to hear from the Honeyz and learn a bit about them, too. I do. Gives some insight on them. Watch this talk with Amber Rose. It won’t change your life. Not promising that. But it might just make you more thoughtful of Amber as a person if you thought ‘less’ of her some way.

(I like her voice, too. It’s cute.)

Yvette Carnell To Black People: Jay Z Is Not That Deep. He Is A Distraction (Video)

They weaponize Black Culture against Black People.

Wow. Yvette Carnell is out of the political game, but talking about it. And this ep of her cast, BreakingBrown, is everything but ‘Politics As Usual’ (watch and you’ll get it). Ms. Carnell is speaking two of her truths: (1) The BET Awards is not that important, Black people; and (2) Jay Z and his new album… not that important, or insightful, either.

Just a ploy to get followers and Tidal subscribers? Well, speak on it, Yvette.

(Full disclosure: She starts ABRASIVE! You might get turned off. But do not ‘turn off’ the video before hearing her out. Some points worth pondering. Blew up some ‘popular’ beliefs about what Hov has popping.)

DL Hughley Speaks On ESPN’s Sage Steele Firing, White Privilege, & Fox News Anchor Bill O’Reilly (Video)

Deeeeem! It’s cold out here for Sage Steele now that the ESPN door got slammed, esp. in the Hughley-verse.

More than that, in this short clip, DL went IN on the FoxNews x Bill O’Reilly situation in the right way… Hell, I remember having genuine HEAT for FoxNews’ ‘Papa Bear’ when he attacked Ludacris on his show (attempted character assassination); when Pepsi dumped Luda as a spokesperson (by the way, eff Pepsi for that.. I’m a Pepper)!

CBS Sports Football Analyst & Former Executive Amy Trask Speaks On Former Raiders Owner Al Davis, Front Office Philosophies And More (Video)

Fix your offensive line first… Now that’s an exec (not an armchair QB, or some think-they-know-it-all) talking! Heed the words of Amy Trask. Because RAIDER NATION, and because she really makes sense. Of course, decades experience with the organization and Rich Eisen even having her on the show to talk about football, late owner Al Davis, various organizational strategies and more. Host Eisen plugs the book (“You Negotiate Like A Girl”), too, of course.

Fantastic discussion. Smart. You’ll feel informed and kind of part of the conversation. Watch.

(Watch her answer to Rich on the probability of a ‘Las Vegas’ Raiders though…)

Civil Rights Activist And Icon Dr. Bernard LaFayette On ‘Love Ultra Radio’ (Live Interview Tonight)

I felt such a rush, and a potent mix, of emotions once Love Ultra Radio green-lit this interview event. This will be something of a fireside chat with Dr. Bernard LaFayette – a living legend, civil rights warrior, and Kingian scholar (who even today teaches the history and methods of activism and nonviolent protest made known in the States by those aligned with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.). And shout out and respect to the bredren Jah Prince and super-producer Iman Lexington for throwing open the doors and welcoming Dr. Lafayette warmly.

Oh… and that hey-I-know-that-name feeling you are getting… that is because I recently mentioned his name in the opinion piece I posted a few weeks back about the Talledega College marching band playing President Trump’s inauguration (link that here).

Want to know what is so awesome, inspiring, and awe-inspiring? I did not really get to know Dr. LaFayette as the man who boldly walked with MLK Jr. and Jesus Christ since his youth. Nah, I got to know him as my high school principal back in Tuskegee, Alabama. I got to know him as the guy that cheered us on our sideline win, lose or lose badly. And as husband to my late Grandma’s longtime friend and across-the-street neighbor, Mrs. Kate (Bulls) LaFayette, who with my Aunt Tammie (Cottrell), helped me get this all set up for tonight.

Yep, and I got to know Dr. LaFayette as the Reverend who eulogized my beloved Grandma (another Tuskegee Legend) and presided over her home-going a couple of years back. Yeah. Doc took time from the never-ending work of uplifting and educating the people of the world, of ensuring that more and more of us learn to love and respect each other, to even fight for each other… without raising fists or firearms to do so… That man, came to sit with the family; share some memories and food; and wipe away a few tears.

Long enough story made only a bit longer: I am honored to know the man honored with the 2016 Mahatma Gandhi International Award for Reconciliation and Peace; and to know that he is NEVER to busy to talk to us… like he will tonight. I hope you will tune in to Love Ultra Radio tonight at 10pm EST to get to know him better, too. See the flyer above for details on the interview. And check out the linked article below for more info on the Doc.

Politics: Greg Palast Speaks On How Voter Suppression Sealed Donald Trump’s Victory (Video)

Wowww… Cross Checking. Damn, they stay scheming, right? Actually, voter suppression is only part of the problem with getting truly fair and open elections. A good chunk of the problem is STORY suppression! Why is this only being talked about on outlets like DemocracyNow and podcasters like Margaret Prescod? Wonder if even they would know to cover such without investigative reporter Greg Palast exposing these political underbelly scum tactics.

If you’re Black, you’re 900% more likely to have your vote disqualified than if you’re White.
Greg Palast

A must watch. The 15 minutes goes by fast. Feel free to watch twice to really get it.

StarTalk: Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson Sits Down With GZA (Of Wu-Tang Clan)

I’m continually impressed that much of the GZA content we share on here places just as much a premium on high intellect and science as it does on skillz. Watch world-renown new school science guy Neil deGrasse Tyson talk with GZA; really getting into real-life love of science, being inspired by it, and how it can (and should) inspire others.
