Jay-Z teaming up with the NFL for music, social justice partnership

first_img Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailGearstd/iStock(NEW YORK) — Rap artist Jay-Z is teaming up with the NFL for a new partnership focusing on music and social justice, following the controversy the league faced over its handling of players kneeling to protest police brutality.Jay-Z will become the National Football League’s “live music entertainment strategist,” a role the NFL says will enhance the live game experience and amplify its social justice efforts.The rapper called the partnership “an opportunity to strengthen the fabric of communities across America.”“With its global reach, the National Football League has the platform and opportunity to inspire change across the country,” Jay-Z, whose birth name is Shawn Carter, said in a statement.Jay-Z and Roger Goodell, the commissioner of the NFL, will speak about the deal in a press conference Wednesday afternoon.The partnership with Roc Nation, Jay-Z’s entertainment company, comes after the league faced a wave of player protests and heavy scrutiny — including from the rapper — over how it dealt with the protests.Beginning in 2016, some football players took a knee during the playing of the national anthem at games to protest police brutality against people of color. Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback believed to be the leader of the protest movement, has not been with an NFL team since end of the 2016 season.The NFL later issued a new national anthem policy in which players were allowed to stay in the locker room for the national anthem if they did not want to stand, but those on the field were expected to stand.Jay-Z spoke out in favor of Kaepernick’s protests and, at one point, even seemed to take aim at the league.“Would you rather be playing football, getting your head dinged in, or would you rather be an iconic figure for the rest of your life?” he told CNN’s Van Jones in January 2018, speaking about Kaepernick.Months later, Jay-Z released a song with Beyoncé in which he appeared to criticize the NFL.“I said no to the Super Bowl, you need me, I don’t need you,” he rapped on Ape—-. “Every night we in the end zone, tell the NFL we in stadiums, too.”Jay-Z appears to change his tune with the new partnership, which will be a multiyear deal.A major component of the partnership will be to work with the NFL’s Inspire Change initiative, which launched in early 2019 and focuses on education and economic advancement; police and community relations; and criminal justice reform.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Reports of sexual abuse, misconduct in Olympic sports up 55% from last year

Dozens of other high-profile gymnasts, including Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas and McKayla Maroney, all former Olympic gold medalists, also accused him of abuse.He was sentenced last year to 40 to 175 years in jail in just one case, but was also sentenced to jail for possession of child pornography.The case has prompted firings, resignations and changes across the U.S. Olympic Committee and safeguards such as SafeSport.

62-year-old man breaks world record with 8-hour plank

first_img Beau Lund Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailfizkes/iStock(CHICAGO) — An Illinois man who spent the past several months training seven hours a day, including 1,500 sit-ups daily, has broken the male world record for longest time in the plank position.George Hood, 62, of Naperville, Illinois, held a plank for eight hours, 15 minutes and 15 seconds, according to Guinness World Records, which certified Hood’s record.Hood — a retired law enforcement officer who now works as a personal trainer — set his first world record for the plank in 2011, holding it for one hour and 20 minutes. He most recently lost the title in 2016 and said his children inspired him to try to win it again.“I’m the father of three sons and part of me did this for them,” said Hood, whose adult sons have followed their dad into law enforcement careers.Hood was also inspired to compete for the plank title again to raise mental health awareness. He completed the challenge on Feb. 15 at an Illinois gym, 515 Fitness, that focuses on using exercise to help treat mental health.“I’m not a paid athlete,” he said. “I do this thing because I can and I can also help raise awareness.”“I’ve seen enough folks in the military and my law enforcement comrades who haven’t fared so well,” Hood said. “We want to break that stigma of seeking [mental health] help.”Hood deployed his own mental toughness to survive in a plank position for the length of a typical workday for most people. He listed to rock music to pass the time and focused on picturing himself as a rock solid tree.“I often envision myself as a tree when I’m on that platform because all the energy I exude from that platform comes from earth,” he said. “Like a tree I have roots and those roots go deep and when they do I’m ready to weather any storm that comes across my platform. I’m ready to stay in my pose without wavering.”Niki Perry, the founder of 515 Fitness, was by Hood’s side for much of the eight hours and also worked with him during his training to prepare him mentally.“We focused on mental toughness and the four c’s that you have to be able to get through to get through something as arduous as this: Commitment, consistency, core beliefs and evaluating challenges,” she said, adding that the gym also arranged for members to speak out on their “why’s” in life to provide inspiration to Hood.At the end of the eight hours, Hood celebrated his new world title by doing 75 push-ups.He said he thinks this plank world record title will be his last. Hood is now eyeing new challenges, like the winning the Guinness World Record for most push-ups completed in one hour, which currently stands at 2,806.His advice for other people looking to hold even just a 20-second plank or do one push-up is to just get started.“Everybody has a starting point,” Hood said. “Everybody starts somewhere and then, like anything in life, you build from that.” Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

New £1.4billion vehicle for rented homes

first_imgThe investors behind residential schemes at the Olympic Park in Stratford and Elephant & Castle have merged the developments to create a £1.4bn vehicle for rented homes.Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company, which is owned by the State of Qatar, property firm Delancey, and Dutch pension fund asset manager APG have merged the assets to create a new company with 4,000 homes, 1,500 of which are already built.The partnership said its ambition was to become the leading player in the delivery of homes for rent in London and other major UK cities over the next few years. The merger is conditional upon regulatory approval. All of the homes will be managed and leased through Get Living London, an existing management and letting platform.Sheikh Jassim Al-Thani, chief development officer for Europe and the Americas at Qatari Diar, said, “This merger between two leading London private rented sector schemes is the first step in what is a much larger endeavour: to significantly increase the supply of new homes in connected and affordable locations in British cities.”The private rented sector (PRS) has boomed in recent years as requirements for sizeable deposits and stricter lending criteria have made it harder for many people to buy homes.The Government’s English Housing Survey found that the rental market has been growing by 17,500 households per month on average over the 10 years to 2014.According to property advisory firm Savills, there will be one million more households renting in five years’ time, despite the Government’s drive to boost home ownership through initiatives such as Help to Buy.While many of the homes in the Olympic Park are already built, on the site of the 2012 athletes’ village, the first phase of the Elephant & Castle Town Centre redevelopment will be delivered in autumn 2016.Robert-Jan Foortse, head of European property investments at APG, said, “In 2010 we started with our UK PRS investment strategy aimed at the strong supply/demand imbalance in the mid-market residential sector. This newly merged entity is the next milestone in our strategy.”new housing land and new homes London Olympic Park rented homes in London Stratford Elephat & Castle 2016-04-14The Negotiator Related articles Calls for ‘green belt’ to be explained to public29th April 2021 Young entrepreneur launches UK’s first ‘modern’ land buying and selling portal15th April 2021 Retail and pub re-openings sparked newbuild sales homes surge yesterday13th April 2021What’s your opinion?
