“STEIN”

stein-1Einstein has always been his stage name, but the dancehall artiste has now decided to use a shortened version and simply goes by the name Stein.

“Yuh can call it a change,” said the artiste, whose real name Jermaine Shaw. “It’s just Stein now.”

He said Einstein was a name he received during his childhood, but he hated it at the time. And even when he became an artiste and coined other stage names for himself, people still referred to him as Einstein. So after he read more about the origin and work of the German physicist Albert Einstein, whose name he borrowed, Stein began to accept the name.

But, “nowadays, nobody nuh really call me Einstein, dem jus’ seh Stein. So I felt it would be much better to just call myself Stein.

In addition, he said his fans experienced problems when they try to find him on the internet, whether on websites Youtube or MySpace. He noted that many people would appear with a search for Einstein. Thus, propelling him to change his name.

The name change is something he always thought about doing and he does not believe it will have any negative impact on his musical career.

“It nah go have no negative impact. Inna germany a Stein di people dem call me and dem call me Stein a Italy, even when mi did a call myself Einstein. The whole world ago start call me Stein,” said the artiste, who is currently on a month-long tour in the United States.

He has already done 11 of the 15 club shows that he was scheduled to do there. After the shows, Stein says he will stay in the country for a while to record songs with different companies.

When Stein returns to Jamaica in June, he will be shooting videos for his songs Safe And Warm and Represent. His nine-song compilation CD. Chimney Records present STEIN, was release recently.

Golding moves to oust MPs over dual citizenship

Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) is moving to have Opposition Member of Parliament (MP) Sharon Hay-Webster and other members of the People’s National Party (PNP) disqualified from sitting in the House of Representatives.

“We have evidence that the question of foreign citizenship is not confined to the government’s side.We have given instructions to our lawyer to file constitutional motions seeking a declaration based on the same principle that was established in the Daryl Vaz case,” Golding told journalists yesterday.

The prime minister was speaking to reporters shortly after he observed his JLP colleague Gregory Mair being nominated to contest the June 16 by-election in North East St Catherine.

Mair, who will compete against the PNP’s Granville Valentine, was disqualified from sitting in the House of Representatives after he was found to have been in breach of the Constitution, having pledged allegiance to a foreign power on his own act.

Mair has since renounced his Venezuelan citizenship in order to contest the by-election.

Yesterday, Golding told journalists that his party was moving to remove all PNP MPs who were in breach of the provisions of the Constitution.

“There are other persons who also have to be held accountable,” Golding said.

But Opposition Leader Portia Simpson Miller told journalists yesterday that the PNP “will file motions against the JLP representatives who are sitting in Parliament that we did not file for. So if they file, then we can file as well,” Simpson Miller said.

She added: “On our side, if anything is wrong, it is wrong and we will deal with the wrong,” Simpson Miller said, while noting that Hay-Webster was “misadvised” about her eligibility to be a Parliamentarian.

Hay-Webster was born in the United States but by her admission has travelled on her US passport, an act which court precedence suggests is an act of a pledge of allegiance/obedience to a foreign power.

Golding, while refusing to name the persons the JLP would be going after in the Parliament, said there were several opposition MPs in breach and that some of the cases were harder than others to prove.

He said the party’s lawyers had been asked to give guidance on how to proceed with opposition MPs who have permanent residency status in the United States.

Pointing to Section 39 of the Constitution which says that in order for a person to be qualified to sit in Parliament they must be ordinarily resident in Jamaica for 12 months preceding Nomination Day, Golding has left no doubt that he believes holders of US green cards must also be flushed from the Parliament.

RIHANNA TO TESTIFY

The D.A. involved in Chris Brown’ case told Rihanna’s  lawyer, Donald Etra, that she would be expected at the next court hearing via subpoena.

“The DA has advised me that she will be subpoenaed [to testify],” Etra said. “She absolutely will comply.”

The DA confirmed to Etra that a motion by Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, to gain access to police records in order to discover who leaked a photo of Rihanna’s injuries was denied, though Geragos will have the right to cross-examine Rihanna when she takes the stand.

As for the “Umbrella” singer’s current state of mind, Etra said, “She’s doing fine. She’s monitoring closely the proceedings of this case.”

To make it even tougher for Rihanna, Chris  Brown will also be present at the hearing and will listen to her testimony.

According to Geragos, the prosecution will outline their case against the embattled R&B star. The D.A. is expected to call the officers who were first to respond to the scene and find the bloodied Rihanna. After the proceeding is complete, the judge will decide if there’s enough evidence to go to trial.

Brown 20, has pleaded not guilty to the charges, for which he could face up to four years and eight months in prison; experts say the case is likely to end in a plea deal. Rihanna will be called to the stand to testify at Chris’ preliminary hearing on June 22, 2009.

Mavado – “Dancehall’s New King?”

 

dhusacover-1What is considered a king of dancehall? So far there have been kings such as Bob Marley, Shaggy, The self proclaim king himself Beenie Man and questionably Dutty Cup’s own Sean Paul. Can Mavado live up to these expectations… we ask that question.

David Brooks aka Mavado hail from the streets of Cassava Piece in Kingston Jamaica is the hottest thing in dancehall right now. Known for his melodic vocals his music has crossed borders that most Jamaican artists dream about. Collaborating with the likes of 50 cent, Busta Rhymes and also recording on a Kanye West track for Jay Z’s  forth coming album the Blueprint 3, with this international success he is undoubtedly the hip hop voice of Jamaica.

With his current hit single “so special” receiving crazy airplay on American radio and his new album “Mr. Brooks Better Tomorrow” climbing the billboard charts he has cemented jam-packed shows in the UK, that also featured Serani, Bugle, Chase Cross and Alliance selector Boom Boom, Mavado moved on to his first-ever European Tour Visiting 6 countries for 9 shows in 10 days across the continent, Mavado has been met with nothing but love, underlining the international appeal of his music and message.

“The response everywhere we’ve been has been mad,” said Mavado. “Paris was the first show and it was crazy, the venue was packed and the crowd sang every word. It set the tone for the rest of the tour which has just been more of the same.”

dscn0089 Traveling by day and performing night after night, Mavado has so far blazed through France, Belgium, North and South Italy and across Switzerland, and will finish up with shows in Germany, Holland and US.

Whilst every show has left the crowd in rapture, perhaps the most poignant appearance was in Zurich, Switzerland, the city where his Father was killed over 3 years ago. Mavado got the chance to meet with some of the elder Mr. Brook’s friends, who knew him as “King” and to cap off a memorable visit Lee Scratch Perry, who is based in Zurich and was also a good friend of Mavado’s Father, attended the show.

With all these achievements and accomplishments and ongoing success can we now truly say that Mavado the Gully God is now the king of dancehall? Since the controversial battle at sting his nemesis Vybz Kartel now has numerous top 10 singles in “Jamaica” and can be heard practically on every new dancehall riddim that hits the streets, Should Vbyz Kartel be dubbed the king or is he just second best, what makes them different?

‘Life Soon Sort Out’ by Famshouse recording artiste G Whizz speaks about the ghetto youths struggle in life and how they cope with it. The melodic rhythm provides a basis for the listener to hear and be entertained quite like in a sultry, almost acoustic template. The conscious lyrics help in sending across the point that although your situations are bad; possibilities exist that they could be worst and it helps to be optimistic about their situation through perseverance towards achieving goals of success and treating everyone with respect and equality.

Hailed as a rising star, the 25 year old singer, sogangsta-whizzngwriter and composer diverse talent encapsulates Reggae, R&B & Dancehall displaying such versatility second to none. At this early stage in his career, his delivery and vocal style shows a depth of talent that legendary artiste Johnny “Mr. Buda-Bye” Osbourne commented, “He is ready”. Needless to say anymore, your own experience is the barometer to determine his true potential.

The Barrett brothers, John and Kevin form the nucleus of Fams House Studio and together with G-Whizz embarked on a musical project a little more than 3 years ago. What they have accomplished in this relatively short period of time is indicative they are following in the tracks of their famous dad, the great bass player and producer Aston “Family Man” Barrett of Bob Marley and the Wailers fame. G-Whizz has released 7 music videos including: “Those Days Are No More” on the Spiritual Warfare rhythm, “Ghetto Life”, “No More War”, “Hush”, “She’s Hot”, “Break Free”, & “Ease My Mind”, a collaboration with female artiste Minx. These videos are also in rotation on Jamaican cable channels: CVM TV, TV J, R.E. TV, Hype TV and Music Plus.

Gwhizz single “MUSIC” is featured on Deeboz Muzik A Little Bit More Compilatin CD which also features Lutan Fyah, Tony Curtis, Lukie-D, Chezidek, Cha’Maine, Qshan-Deya, Simpleman, Anthony Que & Snypah! His most popular songs are “Blue Seam”, “Like A Lady”, “We Wont Stop”, “Music”, “Those Days Are No More”, “Ghetto Life” and “No more War.”

He has began to carve out his own niche in the dancehall with the over night success of 2008 ‘She Bad’ and ‘Its Gonna Be All Right’ is reassurance to the fans that he is not a ‘one hit wonder’.

T.O.K – “Our World”

Welcome to T.O.K.’s world where exquisite four part harmonies contrast rough edged deejaying, soaring falsetto hooks and gently crooned love songs are as plentiful as rapped verses and gritty gangster exploits; a world where crisp production and idiosyncratic, taut songwriting yield a daring fusion that ranks them among dancehall’s most distinctive and enduringly popular acts. T.O.K. (an acronym for Touch of Klass) has named their third album for VP Records “Our World” because it encompasses an assortment of musical hues that have had the greatest influence on the group’s sonic identity. “With this album we have consolidated all that variety into one project,” explains group member Roshaun “Bay-C” Clarke. “We have dancehall, one-drop, Latin flavored beats, music for the hardcore listener, for the conscious listener and for the party goers; that is what our world represents.”

OUR WORLD is dominated by previously unreleased tracks and a few of T.O.K.’s recent hits including “Everybody Bounce”, “Super Model” and “Guardian Angel”, the latter a prayer for spiritual strength sensitively sung over a one-drop reggae rhythm, produced by Arif Cooper. Two years after “Guardian Angel’s” initial release, in March 2009, it topped Japan’s Ring Tone Download Chart, an indicator of the tremendous love Japanese fans have consistently shown T.O.K. since their initial performance there in 200l. T.O.K.’s debut album “My Crew My Dogs” and their sophomore effort “Unknown Language” were, respectively, certified gold (sales of 100,000) and platinum (sales of 250,000) by the Recording Industry of Japan. Because of T.O.K.’s enormous popularity in Japan, “Our World” will have its premiere release there on June T.O.K.’s world has greatly expanded since November 1992 when high school students Craig “Craigy T” Thompson, Xavier “Flexx” Davidson, Alistaire “Alex” McCalla and Ros
haun “Bay-C” Clarke formed a vocal group. Like many of that era’s young singers they were greatly influenced by the brilliant harmonization of 1990s American boy bands including Boyz II Men and their favorite Shai, but as Jamaican youth they were equally inspired by the island’s ubiquitous reggae and dancehall rhythms; their shared vision for T.O.K. was to create an adventurous union between beautifully nuanced vocalizing and dancehall’s rough and rugged edge.

Bay-C and Craigy T introduced deejaying into T.O.K.’s performances at Cactus (the now defunct nightclub located in the Kingston suburb of Portmore), which is where the group learned how to connect with a hardcore dancehall crowd. They began writing original music, individually contributing significant concepts, choruses and verses to the group’s collective compositions and were transformed from a mellifluous high school boy band into a tough rhyming rude boy band. However, it took some time for audiences to embrace their audacious yet appealing hybrid. “We fused harmonies with dancehall subject matter, Flexx and Alex’s sing-jaying with Craig and my deejaying and created this new sound,” says Bay-C. “But people who liked that clean cut boy group sound said why are you going into dancehall and the dancehall community was like you are a boy group, what are you trying to do?”

Undeterred by such criticism, T.O.K. persevered and secured their first recording session, covering 3T’s “Anything For You”, which was produced by venerated drummer Sly Dunbar. Flexx then approached ace selector Rory of the immortal Stone Love sound system with a copy of “Anything For You”; Rory started spinning the tune at Stone Love sessions and before long it was playing on the island’s airwaves.

T.O.K.’s continual refinement of their immense talent has kept them at the forefront of Jamaican dancehall and brought them widespread success, especially in Japan, which is now like a second home to them. The group’s diverse song content, unique sound and the sheer magnificence of their vocals as heard on their third album, guarantees prominent placements on international charts and an even greater musical presence in Our World.

Tyson’s 4-year-old daughter dies after accident

 The 4-year-old daughter of former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson died Tuesday, a day after what police called a “tragic accident” in her home.

Exodus Tyson was pronounced deceased at 11:45 am today (local time) at the hospital,” Phoenix police spokesman Andy Hill said in a statement.

“Our sympathies go out to the family.”

Exodus Tyson had been on life support in hospital since Monday, when she was found by her seven-year-old brother with her neck wrapped in the cable of a treadmill.

The boy called his mother from another room, and the 34-year-old woman freed the girl, called an ambulance and tried to revive her.

Responding officers and firefighters performed CPR on Exodus as they took her to the hospital, where she had been listed in critical condition since Monday.

Tyson was in Las Vegas at the time of the accident and flew Monday to Phoenix, where he was seen entering the hospital.

“We are grateful for the tremendous outpouring of love and prayers from all over the world,” the family said in a statement.

“There are no words to describe the tragic loss of our beloved Exodus.

“We ask you now to please respect our need at this very difficult time for privacy to grieve and try to help each other heal.”

The 42-year-old Tyson has been in the news with the US release of the film “Tyson”, a documentary directed by James Toback that premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year.

It offers an engrossing portrayal of the turbulent life of Tyson – from his humble beginnings on the mean streets of Brooklyn to his phenomenal rise as the youngest heavyweight world champion in history, through his epic fall marked by addiction, humiliation in the ring and a rape conviction.

JetBlue now starting nonstop routes Montego Bay Jamaica

Minister of Tourism, Edmund Bartlett, and the Director of Tourism, John Lynch, were among 150 new passengers arriving at the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, Jamaica, on Thursday on Jet Blue Airways inaugural flight from New York.

Continuing its expansion in the Caribbean, JetBlue Airways on May 21 began a daily non-stop service to Sangster International Airport from its home base at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport.

Bartlett and Lynch, accompanied by Mayor of Montego Bay, Councilor Charles Sinclair and Acting Custos of St James, Enel Brydson, joined in giving each passenger and crew member tokens and gifts.

Addressing participants at a welcome reception at the airport this morning, the Minister said that the relationship being forged between Jamaica’s tourism sector and JetBlue Airways was a “match made in Heaven.”

“As an emerging nation, an emerging airline, JetBlue, meets us at the right point, as we will grow together to achieve great things, a real win-win situation,” Bartlett said.

“It’s been a key strategy for this administration to drive the marketing and ensure that there is connectivity . where people hear about us but can’t get to us. Jamaica would, therefore, be wasting its sweetness unless we are able to be connected and JetBlue is ensuring connectivity for us,” Bartlett noted.

He said that with JetBlue joining a number of other legacy carriers from North America, will give Jamaica a full wrap of the entire continent of North America;, the only destination so to do.

” We are determined, therefore, to use this period, when the world is undergoing its most difficult and challenging time, to put our house in order, to create a level of security for destination Jamaica, so that when it turns, Jamaica is the only place that every one will come”, Bartlett added.

He announced that as soon as Parliament approves the measure, both incoming and out going passengers will be able to shop duty-free in both international airports in Jamaica.

“This will then bring us in line with the great airports of the world and will bring valued revenue to Jamaica,” the Minister said.

Mayor of Montego Bay, Councilor Charles Sinclair, had warm words of welcome for passenger and crew members of JetBlue Airways.

“We hope for you the crew and passengers an enjoyable stay, and that you will be returning on other occasions to enjoy this beautiful city and this country,” the Mayor said.

Senior Vice President of Customer Service at JetBlue Airways, Rob Maruster, announced that the airline will be offering a 20 per cent reduction in airfares from New York to Montego Bay, immediately.

“For the first time in our history, we are very proud to say not only are we happy to be in Montego Bay today, but coming this October we plan to also serve Kingston to New York non stop with JetBlue daily flights,” Maruster pointed out.

Five girls burnt to death at Jamaican Juvenile Center

KINGSTON, Jamaica — Five girls were burnt to death and thirteen injured when fire broke out at a Correctional Centre in Alexandra, St Ann, Jamaica, on Friday night.

Prime Minister Bruce Golding has given instructions immediately to relocate the inmates of the Armadale Juvenile Correctional Centre.

Ten of the girls who were injured and three with secondary burns have been moved to the Kingston Public Hospital.

According to a GIS release, Golding said a Commission of Enquiry will be ordered to determine exactly what took place. He said retired Court of Appeal president, Paul Harrison, has agreed to be the sole Commissioner and the Commission will begin working once the instruments have been signed by the Governor General.

Meanwhile, Golding said security at the centre has been beefed up and additional correctional officers and police have been put in place. Government will also be taking care of the funeral expenses.

The Prime Minister flew down to the Armadale Centre for a first hand view of the situation. He said efforts are being made to identify additional locations where the girls can be housed until repairs have been completed to the Montpellier Centre, which are already underway.

Having looked at the facility, Golding expressed grave concern about the safety of the girls there because this is not the first time that fire has been set to the facility. He said part of the building had been abandoned because of a previous fire and the girls were being housed in another section.

Another man charged along with Ninja Man

A fourth suspect has been charged by Members of the Major Investigation Task Force in connection with the March murder of Ricardo Johnson, in Olympic Gardens, Kingston. The suspect, Seymour Samuels, joins dance hall artiste Desmond “Ninja Man” Ballentine, his son and another man charged for the 20-year old’s murder.

Mr. Samuels, who was charged last week, was remanded until June 1, when he appeared in the Half-Way-Tree Criminal Court on Tuesday.
Investigators say Mr. Samuels was recently captured during a police manhunt. Mr. Johnson was shot dead along Marl Road on March 16 when persons traveling in a motor car opened fire at a man.

The bullets missed the intended target and struck Mr. Johnson who was standing on the road. Ninja Man and his son Janiel were later fingered as the gunmen. The artiste surrendered to the police a few days later, while his 20-year old son and another suspect, Clayton Dennis, were captured in St Ann in April.

Michael Vick leaves prison

(CNN) — Former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick left a federal prison in Leavenworth, Kansas, early Wednesday, according to his publicist and the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

He will serve the last two months of his 23-month sentence in home confinement in Virginia, his publicist Judy Smith said. He is a native of Newport News, Virginia.

Vick, 28, pleaded guilty in August 2007 to a federal charge of bankrolling a dogfighting operation at a home he owned in Virginia.

He will return to professional football as soon as September if reinstated by the NFL, according to the sports agent who negotiated Vick’s 10-year, $140 million contract with the Falcons.

Meanwhile, Vick’s attorneys have said he will work at a Newport News construction firm following his release, and he has also agreed to participate in a documentary for $600,000.

Last month, a federal bankruptcy judge denied a Chapter 11 bankruptcy plan presented by Vick, urging him to offer the court another plan to emerge from bankruptcy.

The plan called for Vick to come up with $750,000 to $1 million in cash to be paid to creditors, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Frank Santoro said, but added he saw no evidence Vick could come up with that much. Santoro suggested Vick’s next plan not call for him to keep two houses and three cars, as did the rejected proposal.

In testimony, Vick acknowledged committing a “heinous” act and said he should have acted more maturely. He said he has been earning 12 cents an hour as an overnight janitor in prison. His Falcons salary, he said, was between $10 million and $12 million. He acknowledged failing to handle his money well.

Vick plans to work with the Humane Society of the United States on anti-dogfighting campaigns, Humane Society President Wayne Pacelle told CNN on Tuesday.

Vick will work on programs aimed at preventing youths from getting involved in dogfighting, and also on programs to assist young people who have already been involved in the blood sport.

Pacelle said the Humane Society was approached by Vick’s representatives. He said he has traveled to Kansas twice to meet with the former quarterback, and during the second visit, the two discussed how Vick could use his sway over youths to discourage them from involvement in dogfighting, as well as help those who were apprehended in connection with it.

TI sentence reduced to 2 months….

71076164-207e-bbea-e491-0d29fe74c14d-rtr09_bb_ti4T.I., whose real name is Clifford J. Harris Jr., must report to Forrest City’s low-security federal prison by noon on May 26, according to court filings. There, Harris will join 1,500 other inmates as he serves a year-and-one-day prison sentence after pleading guilty in March to federal weapons charges in Atlanta.

The rapper, the self-proclaimed “King of the South,” had faced a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each charge in his three-count indictment.

Harris will be credited for 305 days of home detention he already has served after being charged, so his stay at the Forrest City prison likely will be only two months.

R.D. Weeks, a spokesman for the prison, said Harris likely would be treated like any other prisoner coming into the facility.

Bolt runs fastest 150m in history

[zdvideo width='320' height='240' type='FLV-HD']http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0d69bXakUo[/zdvideo]

Triple Olympic champion Usain Bolt ran the fastest ever 150m on Sunday in a street race held in a chilly and windy Manchester City Centre.

Bolt came home in 14.35sec, beating the previous best recorded by Italian Pietro Mennea of 14.8 in 1983. Britain’s Marlon Devonish was second in 15.07sec.

In the women’s race, American Debbie Ferguson-McKenzie clocked 16.54sec to beat Britain’s Olympic 400m gold medallist Christine Ohuruogu, who ran 17.10sec.

Jamaican Bolt, 22, had earlier predicted he would smash his own world 100m record this year.

He said bettering his world record of 9.69 seconds that he set in Beijing last August “shouldn’t be a problem” this year.

“My coach expressed his views in Beijing, saying I could run 9.54, and I can definitely do that,” he told the BBC.

“I still feel goose bumps when I hear or watch the Beijing 100m, it feels good to know I’ve done such a wonderful thing.

“But the 100m final was just another day for me. I knew I was going to win – I was feeling good, my starts were better and that was my main concern, so I wasn’t really worried.

“I don’t really think about (breaking the record again) but I think it’s possible if everything goes well in training.”

Asked how long he hoped to remain a force in world athletics, Bolt forecast he would be a threat until at least 2015.

“I can be at the top for six years if I want,” he said. “That’s the aim for me. My main goal is to make myself a legend and I’m going to work really hard to do that.”

Meanwhile, Ethiopian Haile Gebrselassie comfortably won the Great Manchester Run by 34 seconds with Kenyan Vivian Cheruiyot’s winning the women’s race.

However, Gebrselassie failed in his bid to reclaim his world 10km record as gusting winds made his task impossible.

The 36-year-old – holder of 26 world records during his career – eased to victory but found a strong headwind in the final five kilometres impossible to overcome as he failed to better the world best mark of 27 minutes one second run by Kenya’s Micah Kogo at the end of March.

Gebrselassie, whose major target this year is the Berlin Marathon in September, timed 27minutes 39seconds ahead of Ali Zaied of Libya (28:13) and Ukrainian veteran Sergiy Lebid (28:36).

The two-time Olympic 10,000m champion said that he had felt confident in the first-half of the race but realised as the contest entered the final 5km that he would not succeed.

“Today it was wonderful in the first half but on the way back the wind was horrible,” said Gebrselassie, who nevertheless posted the fourth fastest time in the world this year.

“I wanted to run a world record, but in the second half it proved too difficult.”

Jamaica’s largest bauxite company and alumina shuts down…

Jamaica’s largest bauxite and alumina producing company, Alumina Partners of Jamaica, closed its doors on Friday and completed a temporary shutdown that saw more than 900 workers lose their jobs.

The company, known as Alpart, had announced in March that it would suspend operations for at least a year because the global recession had caused aluminum prices to fall and reduced the demand for bauxite and alumina.

Alpart’s management said the shutdown would allow it to prepare the 54-year-old plant for future development.

“I want to emphasize that this is a temporary closure, a temporary situation,” company spokesman Lance Neita told journalists.

He said that a skeleton staff would stay on to maintain the plant but did not provide numbers.

“We will have a team of employees there until the end of May until they are replaced by another team to carry on the maintenance work during the temporary closure,” Neita said.

Alpart had already cut production by 50 percent and laid off 250 temporary workers in January, then cut permanent employees’ work time to three days a week, down from five.

Aluminum giant UC Rusal of Russia owns 65 percent of the company, with Norsk Hydro (NHY.OL) owning the remaining 35 percent. The plant has a production capacity of 1.65 million tonnes of alumina annually.

Usain Bolt set to run in Manchester…

Triple Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt will run in a 150 metres street race in Manchester, England, on Sunday after recovering from a car accident, the world record holder said on Monday.

“I’m going to Manchester to compete as an athlete,” Bolt told reporters in Jamaica. “My coach (Glen Mills) does not play around and he said that I can compete.”
Bolt suffered minor injuries to his feet in a car accident in his homeland on April 29. He resumed training on Friday.

“(He) looks okay and will be fine for Manchester,” Mills said in statement released by Bolt’s agent, Ricky Simms.

Bolt said he was looking forward to the special race.

“Anytime I go out there it is all about running,” he said. “So I am going out there to compete.”

His sports car was a write off in the accident, but the sprinter denied he was driving recklessly. He said a slippery road surface caused the vehicle to slide off the road and land, on its top, in a ditch.

“I was not speeding as some people have said,” Bolt said. “Even the police confirmed that I was not speeding.

“If I were speeding, things would have been much worse, because the car flipped. I was not speeding, the car just slid and I lost control.”

While in Manchester, Bolt will meet Manchester United soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo and be introduced at United’s home game against Arsenal on Saturday, Simms said.

His next competition will be a 100m in Toronto on June 11

Jamaican government to spend $10 billion to assist the poor

KINGSTON, Jamaica – The Jamaican government is to spend JA$10 billion this fiscal year to keep poor Jamaicans covered under its social safety net, especially in relation to health care and school nutrition.

This was disclosed in Parliament by Prime Minister Bruce Golding, who said that his government has provided an additional $1 billion to expand the Programme for Advancement Through Health and Education (PATH), which has been increased from 243,000 beneficiaries last March to 307,000 by February this year.

This will increase the budget for PATH this year to $3 billion, to expand coverage for all who have fallen in need with the emergence of the global economic crisis since 2008.

He also disclosed that the School Feeding Programme allocation has been increased from $300 million to $1 billion, “so that every hungry mouth can be fed and every hungry brain can be filled.”

This additional amount, Golding said, will increase the total school feeding budget to approximately $3 billion this year.

In the area of the health services, the Prime Minister said that, while last year the government allocated less than $800 million to provide drugs for the public health service, which has been severely pressured since the removal of hospital fees, the allocation has been boosted to $2.5 billion this year, including $300 million from the National Health Fund (NHF).

In addition, $1 billion will be contributed by the NHF to financing the upgrading of strategically placed health centres (clinics) to deal with cases that do not require hospital attendance, in order to ease the pressure on the hospitals.

The Jamaican Shower Posse – American Gangster

American Gangster….The Jamaican Shower Posse

An incredibly violent gang with operations in the 1980s that stretched from Jamaica to New York to Miami and beyond, the Shower Posse got its name because it often rained rounds of automatic weapons fire on its victims.

From their beginnings in the ghettos of Kingston Jamaica, the Shower Posse members and their main posse rivals, the Spanglers, came to prominence as the muscle behind Jamaica’s two major political parties. Their clashes reached a crescendo in the bloody election campaign of 1980, which resulted in an influx of arms to the island and culminated in the election of Shower-backed candidate Edward Seaga. The subsequent emigration of battle-hardened Posse members to the United States, along with the sudden rise of the ’80s crack epidemic, created a perfect storm of violent crimes for money, with the Posse blamed for as many as 1,400 murders.

The Shower Posse’s acknowledged U.S. leader during this era, Vivian Blake, helps “American Gangster” tell the story of the gang’s rise and fall.

Dancehall quartet T.O.K. began filming the music video for their acclaimed single, Guardian Angel during the last leg of their United States tour. The release of the video will coincide with that of their third album Our World, which is scheduled for release in Japan on June 16. Since becoming the number one ringtone in Japan, Japanese fans have been clamouring for more of the hit single, leading them to make the decision to do the video. The song was recorded over a year ago.

The video was shot on location in Miami at the Circle House Recording Studio, with additional scenes from T.O.K.’s performance at South Beach’s Sobe Live. The video is being directed by Ras Kassa and Ras Tingle.

Our World will be released this side of the world on August 25, through VP Records.

Trade battle brewing between Jamaica, Trinidad

A battle is brewing between Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago over the alleged blocking of products from Kingston.

Minister of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Karl Samuda, said during his contribution to the Budget Debate that he would not sit by and allow the continuation of non-tariff barriers being imposed on Jamaican products.

He put his cards on the table after revealing that an established manufacturer who sought to enter the Trinidadian market “was blocked and not permitted to get an import licence for the product to enter Trinidad, because they said they had to visit the facility in Jamaica, before they will allow the goods to be shipped”.

“If every time we are to enter a market, you have to travel to the source of the product and inspect it, then Bureau of Standards organisations throughout the world would mean nothing,” the Minister added.

“So, anybody who believes that on my watch as Minister, that I am going to sit idly by and have people impose non tariff barriers and use all sorts of excuses to bar our products entering their market, while their products are free to enter our market, is making a sad mistake.”

Samuda insisted that determining whether to allow a product into a country should be based only on whether it can compete efficiently, whether the goods are of international standard, or whether adequate quantities can be supplied consistently.

He noted that the Ministry is currently working with the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries and the Ministry of Finance and the Public Service, to ensure that Jamaican producers are put on the same level playing field.

“We don’t want any preferential treatment, we ask for what we deserve and it’s an opportunity to compete fairly. So anybody in any one of our sister territories who are engaged in or who are contemplating continuing with this type of policy, had better review that policy, because we are no longer prepared to sit back and have that continue,” Minister Samuda declared.

Bolt seeks to out-earn Carl Lewis…

But how can Bolt’s marketability today match up to that of Lewis’ during the mid 1980s to early 1990s?

For some, such as MVP Track Club president Bruce James, the answer to that question lies in performance. In his opinion, Bolt has the advantage because he accomplished the more impressive feat.

“He has achieved what Carl Lewis did not achieve which is three gold medals and three world records at the Olympics,” James told Sunday Finance last week, referring to Bolt’s historical performance in the 100 meters, 200 metres and 4×100 metres relay.

For others, however, like financial consultant Dennis Chung, athletic ability is merely the first step and Bolt’s on-the-track performance in Beijing was just a small stepping stone for him in his quest for riches.


By no means is Bolt’s Olympic performance just a “small step” in the grand scheme of things when assessing financials. That performance gave Bolt on-the-track earning power that nobody in track and field has enjoyed for a long time – an almost guaranteed six-figure US dollar pay cheque for each race. Organisers of the ExxonMobil Bislett Games IAAF Golden League meet in Oslo, Norway, for instance, said they were prepared to pay Bolt more money than any other athlete has ever been paid to appear if he races there on July 3 this year. In 2001, those same organisers agreed to pay Olympic 100 metres champion Maurice Greene a US$75,000 appearance fee, so one can just imagine the amount that will be put on the table for Bolt. In addition to appearance fees, the prize for winning a race at a Golden League meet is US$16,000, so in hindsight, Bolt, at worst, is extremely comfortable financially.

However, despite the lofty sums of money on the Mundo, it is said that the bulk of an elite athletes’ earnings comes from off the track.

Chung said that while Bolt’s feat undoubtedly created unlimited potential for off-the-track business opportunities, his financial dreams will never be realised without an effective marketing team pulling the strings behind him.

“Bolt is far superior to Lewis in terms of his potential but the fact of the matter is that a lot was created around Lewis because of marketing,” noted Chung.


“We must understand that it’s not just about running,” he continued. “The (majority of the) money is not going to come from the performances.”

Chung doesn’t believe that Bolt is being marketed properly.
“When you look at a man like Bolt, who did such an amazing feat, the truth is that I don’t think he is being marketed (adequately),” said Chung. “If you look at Bolt (at the Olympics) and you look at him now, he really is still living off the accomplishment of that time and there is no real marketing around him.”

Bolt currently has endorsement deals with German apparel company Puma (worth US$1.5 million a year), mobile firm Digicel and Gatorade, the popular sports drink manufactured by Pepsi. The Boston Globe reported that he was recently in that northeast US city doing a photo shoot for Italian fashion label, Gucci. However, critics are not impressed and have openly questioned why Bolt is yet to endorse licencing his image for products such as food, games and toys.

“It really goes back to Usain Bolt and his management team to make that type of money by making the right decisions and choices,” said Hall of Fame former athlete Juliet Cuthbert. “I really don’t know everything that they’ve done, but I don’t think they’re making the right choices.”

Cuthbert, a three-time Olympic medallist, said based on Bolt’s potential, he should have already procured several US multimillion dollar endorsement contracts. But a major part of the problem, she believes, is the man himself – Bolt.

“With his personality, he could be making way more than what he’s earning now but he needs to polish up his act,” opined Cuthbert. “He needs to understand his marketability and until he does, he will never earn that US$10 million.”

Last week, Bolt escaped serious injury after he wrote off his J$15.3-million 2009 BMW M3 Coupe on the Vineyard Toll section of Highway 2000 in St Catherine, just three weeks after making controversial comments to a German newspaper on youthful marijuana use. But as Cuthbert pointed out, the market of sports endorsements is one where money and squeaky-clean public images go hand-in-hand. While performance is a prerequisite, looks, personality, lifestyle and communication skills are integral parts of the résumé companies seek when searching for product spokespersons.

“If he wants to earn US$10 million a year, he cannot be wreckless in anything that he is doing and he has to think before he goes out there in the public eye so he doesn’t do anything that can ruin his career,” Cuthbert said.

“Marion Jones, for example, was polished,” continued Cuthbert, in reference to the now disgraced US runner who was heavily endorsed before drug allegations surfaced. “That girl could talk and she was pretty, so people would make her endorse things.”

Indeed, Bolt’s fellow Olympic headliner Michael Phelps was dumped by cereal company Kellogg’s after photos surfaced of him smoking marijuana from a pipe. It is even argued by US sports marketers that Lewis, who won nine Olympic gold medals and a record eight World Championship titles, lost out on some valuable endorsement deals because of questions about his private life and his perceived ‘over-cockiness’ (His agent infamously claimed he was bigger than Michael Jackson).

Still, Lewis raked in a solid – if not impressive – range of endorsement contracts, from gracing the cover of Wheaties to selling burgers for McDonald’s. He was especially popular in Europe where he reportedly sold millions of copies of a recording album he produced. Against that background, it will be no easy feat for Bolt to shatter Lewis’ achievements financially, especially due to the fact that his emergence coincided with a downturn in the global economy.

“One of the things that is working against him is the fact that demand and economic activity is contracting,” noted Chung. “Therefore, the market that was out there for endorsements will not be there for a little while.”

The fact that Bolt is not American will also act as a constraint, explained Cuthbert.

“Bolt will have to do exceptionally well for Americans to endorse him,” she reasoned. “I think European companies will probably endorse him faster.”

However, all agree that Bolt is certainly in a position to raise the bar above that of ‘King Carl’, and, indeed, indicators are rife of Bolt’s far reaching and revolutionary marketing potential for the sport of track and field. For instance, in a new Gatorade commercial, he shares centre stage with the likes of Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Peyton Manning, Mia Hamm and other sports’ greats. Perhaps even more amazing, three-time Kentucky Derby winning US horse trainer Bob Baffert reportedly emulated Bolt’s ‘To di worl’ pose after his thoroughbred won a famous Cup.

“He can earn far in excess of the US$10 million he desires,” said Chung of Bolt, “if marketed effectively he should be getting all types of endorsement, movie contracts, watch deals etc”.

Bob Love Riri

You got new love, groupie love, and rebound love.  Guess which one Rihanna has right now?  According to rumors, Lady RiRi wastes no time in moving on and has supposedly gotten back with her ex island rasta Negus Sealy. “Rihanna and Negus both realised there was still a strong sexual attraction between them and became inseparable. Whenever Rihanna went to the beach or out partying, Negus was always there. They were very careful not to be seen too closely together though as they’re trying to keep their relationship secret.”

We know how terrible well Rihanna keeps secret, so we should hear more about this pretty soon.

Kelis files for divorce…

keliaKelis’ milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, but she may soon be building a fence to keep Nas out.

The R&B singer, who is seven-months pregnant, has filed for a divorce from her hip-hop hubby Nas.

“I can confirm that she has filed for divorce,” a rep for Kelis, whose full name is Kelis Rogers-Jones, tells Vibe. “We request the media to respect her privacy during this very difficult time.”

Kelis cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. The couple, who wed in 2005, is expecting a son this summer.

The pair met in 2002 at a MTV Video Music Awards after-party thrown by Diddy. Kelis recounted the party in an interview with Vibe in 2003, saying, “Everyone moves out of the way and Nas stands up and I put my hand out and I’m like, ‘Hey, I’m Kelis.’ And he goes, ‘Who?’…So I’m crawling into a f**king hole, and he’s like, ‘Wait-huh? What’s your name?’ And I’m like, ‘Kelis’ and he’s like, ‘Oh, well that’s great, because I’ve been waiting to make you my wife all these years.’”
