Gays wont purchase jamaican products…

A gay-rights group in San Francisco has launched a boycott of Jamaica and Jamaican products.

They are protesting against what they claim to be an increase in attacks against homosexuals in Jamaica.

The group is calling its demonstration, the Boycott Jamaica Campaign.

Bevan Dufty a member of the gay-rights group says he has arranged a meeting with the honorary consul of Jamaica for San Francisco, Dr Newton Gordon to highlight their concern.

According to Dufty, the meeting has been scheduled for April 7.

He says during the meeting the gay advocates will also highlight the recent US State Department report on homosexuals in Jamaica.

The report highlights that gays have been victims of mob violence in Jamaica.

The gay-rights group says it will urge immediate action from the Jamaican Government and demand that it protect citizens who are homosexuals.

Last year the national security ministry
issued a release saying the Government recognizes the rights of all citizens and condemns all attacks.

The release was issued after Prime Minister Bruce Golding appeared on the BBC hardtalk programme saying he would not tolerate gays in his Cabinet.

T.I. Sentenced To Prison

71076164-207e-bbea-e491-0d29fe74c14d-rtr09_bb_ti4The day of reckoning has finally arrived for Clifford Harris. T.I. was sentenced by a Northern Georgia District judge to one year and one day in prison on felony weapons charges stemming from the now infamous incident back on October 13, 2007 where the rapper was arrested only hours before taking the stage at the BET Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta, GA.

The Judge said that T.I.’s plea deal was a success and hoped that the community service – which included speaking to youth about maintaining a positive lifestyle – would inspire similar plea deals.

Harris’ plea deal included the 1,000 hours of community service before he entered prison, another 500 after he finishes his sentence and paying a $100,000 fine.

T.I. is scheduled to voluntarily report to prison in the next four to six weeks. However, due to previously agreed-upon commitments, he will not enter prison before May 19

Ninjaman’s brother stabbed to death…

Police say a man, whose body was found with that of a woman in Manor Park, St Andrew, is the brother of popular dancehall artiste Ninja Man. The bodies were found yesterday on Grosvenor Terrace with stab wounds, but police theorise that both were killed the night before. A superintendent at the Constant Spring Police Station said the man worked as a security guard. Morris said the man’s employer told police that he was Ninja Man’s brother. Efforts to get a confirmation from Ninja Man or anyone from his management team proved futile yesterday. The superintendent identified the woman as Elsie Armstrong.

Miss Cleo announces she’s a lesbian!!!

a5d3571f-fe1d-7ded-c1e6-094a43eb9498-news_fb_misscleo

At a tiny, earth-toned coffeehouse, the fliers advertise mediums and meditations. Wind chimes ring and dream catchers spin.

It’s early afternoon. The plush couches sit empty.

And seated at a table, a silver snake earring dangling from one ear, Miss Cleo says she couldn’t be happier.
”I’m a proud voodoo woman,” she says in the thick Caribbean accent that many late-night television viewers can well recall. “And I make no apologies to anyone.”

Around the turn of the millennium, Miss Cleo was the face and voice of the Psychic Readers Network in TV commercials and infomercials across the country, many of which still live on at Web sites like YouTube.com.

Draped in colorful robes, she urged nighthawks to call in because “the cards never lie.”

That lasted until the Psychic Readers Network, run by Access Resource Services of Fort Lauderdale Is your Fort Lauderdale restaurant clean? – Click Here., succumbed to a storm of lawsuits from consumers who said they were grossly overcharged.

Cleo, a spokeswoman but never the boss, was sued, too. But she was not found liable.

Since then, Cleo has found a new life.

The woman also known as Youree Dell Cleomili Harris moved from Davie to Lake Worth, came out as a lesbian, released a spoken-word CD, and started a radio show.

She is still recognizably Miss Cleo. It is the name people call out on the street when they see her and the name she uses in public, including on her Web site, www.the-real-mscleo.com.

During a recent interview, Cleo had moments much like those in the commercials, minus the incense. Her laughs were long and loud, and she peppered her sentences with ”How delicious!” and “What a kick in the pants!”

She is taller than she seemed on TV — 6 feet, plus a few extra inches from her high-heeled shoes. Her hair was pulled back in a wrap tucked under a pageboy hat.

She said she was drawn to Lake Worth in 2007, and to this coffeehouse, by her work with the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.

Since then, she has protested in downtown Lake Worth, walked in the Florida AIDS Walk in Fort Lauderdale, and emceed the PrideFest 2008 of the Palm Beaches.

”I don’t know her from her Miss Cleo days,” said Allan Hendricks, Palm Beach County meetup organizer for Equality Florida. ‘So when I met her it wasn’t under the premise of `I’m meeting Miss Cleo.’ It’s that I was meeting some really cool woman named Cleo.”

At PrideFest, Cleo mocked her Psychic Readers Network past, said Julie Seaver, capital campaign manager with Compass Community Center in Lake Worth. (But Cleo also made a donation to the PrideFest raffle — free readings for 10 people.)

Occasionally, Seaver said, she gets an e-mail Cleo sends to friends and clients, reminding them when dangers lurk in the cosmos — and that they should get their oil and tires checked.

”I love spending time with her,” said Seaver. “I wish I could hire her, but she’s too busy.”

“Tyson” – New Movie- see trailer…

tyson_l200903131044Tyson is acclaimed indie director James Toback’s stylistically inventive portrait of a mesmerizing Mike Tyson. Toback allows Tyson to reveal himself without inhibition and with eloquence and a pervasive vulnerability. Through a mixture of original interviews and archival footage and photographs, a startlingly complex, fully-rounded human being emerges. The film ranges from Tyson’s earliest memories of growing up on the mean streets of Brooklyn through his entry into the world of boxing, to his rollercoaster ride in the funhouse of worldwide fame and fortunes won and lost. It is the story of a legendary and uniquely controversial international athletic icon, a figure conjuring radical questions of race and class. In its depiction of a man rising from the most debased circumstances to unlimited heights, destroyed by his own hubris, TYSON emerges as a modern day version of classic Greek tragedy.

JLP wins by-election

Jamaica’s ruling party has maintained its slim grip on power after dominating a parliamentary by-election in a rural parish.Jamaica Labor Party candidate Daryl Vaz won the Monday by-election in West Portland. The island’s electoral office declared Vaz the winner over his rival from the People’s National Party with 82 of 99 ballot boxes counted.

The victory means the JLP retains a 32-28 advantage in Parliament and eases pressure on Prime Minister Bruce Golding to call early elections.

The Jamaican-born Vaz, 43, had to give up his U.S. passport and joint citizenship before the hotly-contested vote. Under this former British colony’s law, anyone with allegiance to a non-Commonwealth country is prohibited from serving in Parliament.

Rihanna Wants to Rehabilitate Chris Brown’s Public Image

rihanna4big2802_468x6761A new report claims Rihanna wants to help Chris Brown become a “better person”. The “Umbrella” hitmaker is said to be keen to “rehabilitate” the troubled singer’s image after he was arrested for allegedly assaulting her last month.

“Rihanna’s priority is to rehabilitate Chris’ terrible public image and she’ll stop at nothing,” a source says. “She’s convinced that he’s now learned his lesson and with her support and commitment will become a changed man.”

The source then reveals, “She went with him to see a trusted pastor recommended by his mom Joyce,” while adding, “At some point over the next two weeks she’ll also be going with Chris to see a therapist who specializes in anger management and couples therapy.” Rihanna reportedly also told Chris that she’ll play the supportive girlfriend if he agrees to do a TV interview.

“Chris is surrounding himself with people who are reinforcing what a good person he is and telling him what he wants to hear,” the source tells Britain’s Now magazine. “There’s no one in his camp telling him any home truths. Everyone in his circle knows that it’s in his best interests career-wise to stay with Rihanna,” the source continues. “The pastor told them about the power of forgiveness and Rihanna has really latched on to that. Monica is also God-fearing, but she just can’t bring herself to forgive Chr

Ninjaman charged with murder…

 

Ninja Man

Ninja Man

CaribWorldNews, KINGSTON, Jamaica, Mon. Mar. 23, 2009: A popular Jamaican dancehall singer has been slapped with a murder charge.

 

Police on Saturday charged Ninja Man, born Desmond John Ballentine, with murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm in last Monday`s killing of a 20-year-old man on Marl Road in Kingston.

Ninja Man, 43 of Annotto Bay, Jamaica, is known for his controversial and pro-gun lyrics and his stuttering and melodramatic style of music.

He launched his deejay career with the Black Culture Sound System at age 12 as `Double Ugly.` In 1980, he joined Killamanjaro and there got the chance to learn from established deejays Super Cat and Early B, and released his debut single as `Uglyman.`

Yet another name change made him the now well known Ninjaman. In 1987, Ninjaman recorded – and produced himself – his first hit single `Protection,` a duet with Courtney Melody. The following years brought many prolific collaborations with producers like King Jammy, Witty, Xterminator, Philip `Fatis` Burrell, Redman, Ini Kamoze, Bobby Digital, Augustus `Gussie` Clarke, and Steely & Clevie and Henry `Junjo` Lawes. It has been said that Ninjaman comes up with all of his lyrics on the spot in the recording studio, in a freestyle manner.

His hits over the years 1989-1992, like `Murder Dem,` `Permit to Bury` and `Above the Law` reinforced Ninjaman’s image of a violent rude boy. One of his most infamous rivalries was the one with Shabba Ranks, leading to a number of clashes.

In 1993, criticism of Ninjaman’s violent and pro-gun lyrics arose, leading to a decline in performing gigs and chances to record.

By 1997, Ninjaman had changed his name once again, now performing gospel reggae songs as `Brother Desmond.` He sought help to fight his Crack cocaine addiction in born again Christianity. It was not a complete changeover though, earning him criticism from parts of the Jamaican Christian community.

In the late 1990s, he was accused (but later acquitted) of having raped a woman at knifepoint in his home and having murdered a taxi driver. He was sentenced to one year in jail in late 1999, after being convicted of unlawfully possessing a firearm and ammunition.

Ninja Man is expected in court this week to answer the charges.

RihannaThe 21-year-old pop star whose boyfriend Chris Brown has been charged with felony assault and making criminal threats following his alleged assault on her has reportedly been looking at various scripts in New York, including a remake of the hit ’90s film which starred Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner.
