This picture doesn’t even do this place justice. The project, namely The Tiger Woods Dubai, is an exclusive lifestyle community scheduled for completion by late 2009. The spectacular Al Rawaya Golf Course serves as its focal point.

Spread across an area of 55million square feet, The Tiger Woods Dubai will be an exclusive golf community featuring a professionally-staffed golf academy, a clubhouse spread across 139,000 square feet with premium amenities, a high-end boutique hotel, a premium destination spa, 75 mansions, 22 palaces, and 100 luxury villas.

The Tiger Woods Dubai will soon be one of the most sought-after destinations in the world, and will be a genuine oasis for those lucky enough to live or stay within its spectacular grounds, said Tiger Woods.

Paul Robeson: A Renaissance Man

29 Mar

Paul Robeson was the epitome of the 20th-century Renaissance man. He was an exceptional athlete, actor, singer, cultural scholar, author, and political activist. His talents made him a revered man of his time, yet his radical political beliefs all but erased him from popular history. Today, more than one hundred years after his birth, Robeson is just beginning to receive the credit he is due.

Born in 1898, Paul Robeson grew up in Princeton, New Jersey. His father had escaped slavery and become a Presbyterian minister, while his mother was from a distinguished Philadelphia family. At seventeen, he was given a scholarship to Rutgers University, where he received an unprecedented twelve major letters in four years and was his class valedictorian. After graduating he went on to Columbia University Law School, and, in the early 1920s, took a job with a New York law firm. Racial strife at the firm ended Robeson’s career as a lawyer early, but he was soon to find an appreciative home for his talents.

Check out one of his documentaries here.

Aubrey Drake Graham

Drake is a phenomenal rapper and from where i can see, a pretty down-to-earth and intriguing individual apart from his professions. i had the opportunity to be introduced to his music by a young friend of mine and fell in love with the artistic integrity on Drake’s mixtape “Room For Improvement.” Since then, i’ve followed him and his career and have enjoyed his growth as an artist thus far. He’s just released his latest mixtape, So Far Gone, which is available for download on his blog October’s Own. And since his popularity is increasing this will most likely be the last time i blog on Mr. Graham. Check his interview out with Complex below.

15 Shots??

22 Feb

This is ridiculous… things just don’t really seem to be changing at all do they? Our people, our communities, our WORLD needs a voice. Not a figure head, not a celebrity, not a donation, not another charity event, not another party, not another bash, but someone (a group of folks) who area willing to dedicate themselves to the betterment of society. Whether it’s local or global! In my humble opinion, that is what keeping Dr. King’s ‘Dream’ alive means to me. Not about a race achieving something, but people living peacefully amongst each other understanding and agreeing to disagree, at the very least, on our differences. As much as our nations mantra has become “CHANGE” in our nations history have i ever seen it. And at this point in time to “Change” the habits and ignorance of racism, socialism, classism, and inadequate education… i hope for, but don’t see “Change” happening from within the system.

And though, this definitely hit home, literally and metaphorically, seeing as i am born and raised in Pasadena, CA… this is not something that just effects me. But it’s just like anything else in our society i guess, we never put stop signs up on a street until a little kid gets hit. i’m saddened, heartbroken, outraged, and furious. Hope will never be lost but i do know that Jesus is the only way.

God bless!!
Rest in Peace “LB”
