  3. #CopaLibertadores night 8202019 #GRemio vs #Palmeiras It was a great match. The round of eight has pure conmebol battles in the copa libertadores, Teams are not separated by huge distance in salary or quality. Felipe Melo was a general in midfield but his reputation led to his two yellow cards and meant palestre italia sao paulo was down a man against palestre germania porto alegre. But when Palmeiras had the numbers disadvantage, Gremio did not reply with patience. Gremio attacked like the last few minutes was to win the copa libertadores, not the end of a first leg in the round of eight. The second leg will be in sao paulo , but palmieras absent Felipe Melo as well as the fact that Gremio had more possession in this match, bolds well for a victory for gremio. Surviving twenty five to thirty minutes down to ten absent your defensive general is not the same like a full ninety minutes. Palmieras do have the counterattack and if Gremio's emotion late in this match is a sign, gremio will lapse and break before they settle and mature into the kind of emotion they need to play with.

  4. The dancing in this video is beautiful! And look at all those chocolate young women and men!~ They are beautiful! Thank you for sharing! It reminds me Janet Jackson's "IF" video but with a majority of beautiful black people. And @Troy don't you remember how sensual we were as a teenagers and young adults? Google can't promote what comes naturally - Young people are sensual, curious and carefree with each other. This choreography just communicates this age but with pure athleticism mixed sensuosity and grace.

  6. David doc Robertson's new book Body and Soul was named for the classic improvised lyrical phrases of the Coleman Hawkins jazz performance of the same name. On the first page of the story, which opens in 1940, Peter Daniels plays the song loud enough to drown out the humming tubes on his living room phonograph and dances with his wife to celebrate the birth of their first and only grandchild, Adam Daniels, the story's protagonist. Right away, Robertson's sensitive description teams with Hawkins' tender jazzy lyricism and allows the reader to see the couple in step and undeterred by improvisation that makes it so seductive. This vision presents the structural purpose of the book, which takes the reader beyond the story and into the novel itself as participants. Doc parallels the ballad by appealing to a body's senses, including smell, taste, etc. "If a character smells fresh bread or falls in love, I want the reader to savor the aroma or experience the emotional sensation." He points out that the novel shares a variety of feelings and reactions, both joyous and painful. Though Adam's birth provides joy for his grandparents, it hurts his mother since her son was born bi-racial in 1940 Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The story descriptively outlines the standards of the time and even takes a look back into the early 1900s. After the look further back in history, the book details Adam's journey into manhood where he starts a family and a career in law. But like Hawkins improvised with unanticipated riffs in his song, Doc improvises Adam's life story in unexpected shifts that changes the setting to El Centro, CA and even into Mexico. Through it all, the story emphasizes the importance of family and the strength one gains from the connections whether through blood or embraced by choice. And like Hawkins' music, it ultimately demonstrates a new way to tell an old story, ending with a sense of glowing satisfaction.
  7. Some police just picked up about 4 young white men for plotting to commit mass murder.I think this is a step in the right direction. However Pres. Trump doesn't seem to be interested in the safety of his American people when he remarked, "Guns don't kill.People do".That doesn.t explain why crazy people should have military-style weapons.
  8. "Harm" many not be the right word. So I can't answer your question as posed. No the video is not XXX porn, but surely you'd agree the video is pretty provocative for prime time. If you don't find it sexually suggestive then you may be too old to have those feelings any longer :-) I know I wanna go out right now and find me a 20 something to get busy with I dunno man, I can only imagine what the average teenage boy wants to do after seeing this video. Again it is not just one video. This type of content is everywhere. This video single video will have been watched at least 20 million times in less than a week. That is more people who come to this site in an entire year. Look, scantily clad women gyrating in this manner were around when I was a teen too, but you had to go to a strip club to see this stuff. Today it is in the palm of your hand, on demand, 24/7. I'm not convinced there are no adverse consequences as a result of this -- are you @Pioneer1?

    The Goddess

    Created in the image of he that created all The Goddess or deity stands in heaven’s halls, Making her way into places many fear to go, Her desire for knowledge surpasses excellence, While her story remains untold Her experience is apparent, it is found in every facial fold, Her beauty defines her fortitude; your future is her Goal To see tomorrow’s child and watch their dreams unfold To understand the fight yet venture past the obviously unknown The Goddess is the spirit that mothers from afar, Who lifts the broken hearted and with love helps us to embrace the scars. She is in essence that voice that says it is okay, she allows us to breathe, she sees each of us as special, this just seems to be her way. She is the smile, the butterfly, the call from an old friend, the encouragement that we needed to press pass what we deemed the end. She is that gentle touch of God, the directions in the dark, she watches from afar, but resides in every heart. She is as divinity, one that cannot be explained, so she is titled the Goddess but she goes by many names, some will call her mother, others see a friend many see a soldier, her names have no end, her attribute can be found in Proverbs 31, she as the deity is the wish each mother has for a son. Created in the image of he that created all, the Goddess or deity stands in heaven’s halls. Making her way into places many fear to go. Her desire for knowledge surpasses excellence. While her story remains untold. Genesis 1: 26 And God said let us make man in our image. Let them have Dominion over all (sickness, finance, relationship, ect, ect. Ect) 27: So God created man in his own image, in the of God created he him, male and female he created them, (We are products of he that created us, but how often we forget)
  10. It's similar to a degree over here. UAF I think are virtually all caucasian with hardly anyone from the British Caribbean community or Asian (as in Muslims or Hindus). But they do a good job standing up to the far right as well as others like Stand up to Racism and Hope not Hate. These organisations are ALWAYS present when the far right demo. The latter do seem to have a good mix of people.
  11. Maurice I have suspicions about this "antifa" group as well. They are supposed to be this far left organization yet I don't see any AfroAmericans or Latinos as members nor do I see any of them in real life....only on television.
  12. Troy Oh don't get me wrong, I totally respect the right for whoever to get themselves all tatted up if they like. But I don't like this "monkey see monkey do" attitude of just because you see a lot of Caucasians doing something you feel an automatic urge to imitate them even without knowing the meaning. Infact, I make the same complaint about so many AfroAmericans wearing suits and ties as so-called "business" attire. Common sense should tell us that one's ability to do good business pertains to what's going on in their head and their ability to sell their ideas and effectively communicate.....and as long as their clean and neat whether or not they have a suit on should be irrelevant. But since the founders of this society (Caucasians) established that you should wear a suit and dress shoes to business (and church) many of our people just go along with it unquestioned. ....but that's another topic all together, lol. Listen, I'd lke you to think about my question carefully....... Exactly what (as in what scenes can you point to) in this video do you think would actually harm a child by them looking at it? There is no nudity. No one is even having sex. It's just a bunch of people dancing and shaking and showing a lot of skin (and tatoos). How could this be detrimental to a child's development or psyche?
  13. Last week
  14. #Coachcam- The #NFL has started a coach cam. Ian joy @JoyPaulian suggest #klopp or #guardiola having a coach cam in manchester city or liverpool but I think his query lead into a bigger issue. The goal in media is to entertain, but not all people are entertained the same way. Millions of fans want to see their favorite sport absent higher referee activity or higher electronic assistance or higher pre-during-post match assessment. Millions want to simply enjoy their favorite sport absent many of the modern media adjustments. Millions of fans want to see their favorite sport using more than current referee activity, electronic assistance, pre-during-post match assessment. Millions enjoy their favorite sport with more media activity or electronic activity around their sport that is used in modernity. But, what is the problem? Millions want both ways. It isn't that all want one and few want the other. Many want both so how can media enterprises serve more than one master? https://twitter.com/JOYPAULIAN/status/1163201368108097536

  16. The #BlackQueens are unable to study- Naa Bardina @NBSports_Live quotes ghana coach Madam Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo in her lamentations about the lack of structure in ghana to the womens game to prepare players for competition when called up. The first thing all have to realize is most selectable female players, over 95%, for any flag play on the land that flag stands. sequentially, female soccer is not the place like in mens soccer where flag teams can be developed through the global transfer of players. You see this in the mens teams of ghana/ivory coast/croatia side many others. Absent france's ligue1 or similar leagues that accept a high percentage of players from outside their domestic land or confederation many flag teams will stifle cause the domestic leagues under those flags are not developed enough to aid the development of players to improve. Womens soccer is not in that place, sequentially, womens soccer flag teams demand a higher quality domestic league to aid in player development. And in ghana's case, the development of the womens system internally is closer to dead or absent than growing or blossoming. The problem going forward is the solution? how does a country absent a strong natural resource, absent a potent fiscal community, find the money or resources to develop an athletic environment? I do think the answer is in crowdsourcing, accessing people from ghana living abroad to finance through a collective financial system to specific agendas is key. Functionally, I see it as the socio model through crowdsourcing. The first type of product financed are basic: pitches, boots/kits et cetera , objects that are about aiding players or all teams. For example, all teams in the first tier, need a pitch so provide a crowdsource that will collectively make all pitches needed for the teams. For other actions, like salaries a person pays a certain amount of money they get a vote to vote on who gets a contract. The idea is, crowdsourcing can access the money outside ghana from the people of ghana. article https://nbsportslive.com/tokyo-2020-queens-coach-bemoans-lack-of-competition-head-coach-black-queens/ referral https://twitter.com/NBSports_Live/status/1163478855539187713

  19. Sex sells. Sure, but what are the selling @Pioneer1? I don't understand people with dark skin getting tatoos myself, but I have no "problem" with it. The only really problem I have with video is that I don't think it is appropriate for young kids and Google does not appear be exercising any control over who sees their vidoes. The video has over 14 largely due to Google pushing it. I see now that Google is selling tickets to a concert Normani is performing in... slick.
  20. After the trouble in Portland ,Trump now see some it to label Antifa as terrorists. Is he kidding? As far as I can tell,all they did was confront the far right. Says a lot about him,doesn't it ?
  21. Mel Well if you had stuck with them a little longer and rose higher in the ranks of the party you would have eventually realized that not only are they a bunch of thugs and gangsters but at the very top BOTH the Republicans and Democrats are one and the same. The Left wing and Right wing are just different side of the same bird of prey. Republicans and Democrats are just components of a political game controlled by the same group. As far as the financial aspect of Conservatism......... I can agree with it on a local and state level because these regions can't "make" their own money but must get it from other sources; but I don't by fiscal conservatism at all on the federal level because this nation can literally "make-up" and print all of the money it wants and add as much value to it as needed to offset inflation. And this is exactly what the U.S. has been doing since WWII. So there is no need for America to be financially conservative at the federal level.
  22. Sex sells.... Always has Always will But let's put this video in it's proper perspective........ This video is MILD. It's not even worth a PG rating as far as I'm concerned. All it is is a bunch of AfroAmerican youth dancing and girating around in scant clothing. There is NO SEX being had, and NO NUDITY seen. Like you I watched the entire video also, expecting to see some nudity or sex....lol...and didn't. While my concern isn't the exact opposite of yours, it may be considered a bit diagonal or kitty-corner from it. My concern is that this society is becoming TOO "anti-sex" because they are mistaking tasteless juvenile girating like what you see in that video.....for ACTUAL SEX. Because it's not. You can see more skin and sensuality at the beach. I await the day where you'll actually see COMPLETELY NAKED women (especially older women for a change) not just dancing around but actually HAVING REAL SEX in music videos as well as in movies and this be a normalized thing. On a side note, I noticed that almost all of the men in that video had tatoos. I do have a problem with so many of our people getting tatoos over their bodies. People of color don't need tatoos....they already have color in their skin.
  23. A lot of AfroAmericans are hard on Jay-Z for not going in hard enough on White Supremacy given his wealth and status but Jay-Z isn't a Civil Rights leader nor does he profess to be one. He's an entertainer and he makes his money making people happy, not pissing them off....which often happens when you start delving subjects of controversy like politics. Truth be told, like most rappers of the 90s Jay-Z got rich rapping about killing other AfroAmerican men, selling dope, abusing women, and engaging in other negative anti-social endeavors. Should we really EXPECT anything positive from him?
  24. I think they're putting more than just lead in the water but other toxins too. Much of this is used to control the behavior of the AfroAmerican population but when you have AfroAmericans in positions of power like police, mayors, and even the President (Obama) who KNOW about this and do absolutely NOTHING about it.....what can you say? If this were a WHITE city and they found this out, the White judges and cops would have whoever was in charge of the municipal water supply in cuffs and up on charges within a week. They wouldn't wait on the fed or someone else to do it....they would take care of it themselves. But you have some Black officials standing around in suits and ties scratching their heads over "what to do" when their cities are poisoned. The older I get the more I realize how just and correct this Universe actually is and how people often get just what they deserve. You KNOW the water is poisioned...but you still drink it and do nothing about it. You KNOW drugs are put into your community to destroy you....but you still use and sell them. You KNOW guns are put into your community to destroy you....but you still use them. Since childhood I wondered why Black people had to go through what they did, but when I observe the BEHAVIOR of a lot of our people even when we have the opportunity and power to do better and help ourselves......often times the reasons our people are in the conditions they are in make much more sense.
  25. A Case for #china - Many pundits based in white owned or european owned media, that I am totally immersed in, suggest playing in china is a lesser than scenario but looking at the current players in china not from china, I see some continuations or interesting points. Brazil- a continuation- by far Brazilians are willing to play in china. approximately twenty four are in china. They are in various teams, various clubs. Now it is true, Brazilians have a history of playing everywhere far more than any other country. But it begs the question, what do so many others have against playing in china? is it agents doing, most agents in UEFA or CAF are interwoven in uefa's community. Many Brazilians have agents who are sanguine thus not tied into a uefa centric as much as a money centric wherever scenario. The Caribbean Football Union <c.f.u.>- an interesting point- so many players from the caribbean play in second tier uefa leagues, why not first tier in china? I don't comprehend why not? In Jamaica only Leon Bailey plays in a first tier league from a top five football association in UEFA, so why not play in china? Jamaican women have nine players who play in the first tier in the top five leagues in UEFA or the top tier in the USA. But for either, why not play in china? Jamaica women are better represented in top leagues than Jamaican men, so the Jamaican men need to do it more but why not? In Trinidad, both the men or women mostly play in Trinidad, a Caribbean country that does have oil money. But, Haiti men are like Jamaican men while Haitian women live through the efforts of Shek Borkowski. Suriname men are like Trinidad's while Suriname women are in a less developed environment than Haiti. Guyana men are like Jamaica's while guyana women are like Suriname's Between Jamaica/Trinidad/Haiti/Suriname/Guyana you have the powerhouses of the Caribbean region. None in the player ranks, male or female, have a need to reject playing in china. Lastly, money exists in China or Eastern Asia. When you look at kpop's power, that is related to the financial power in east Asia. Entertainment acts in east asia do not require the usa or europe to make profit and thus with global media connections, if they can become popular outside east asia, they are global superstars, but global superstars based not in Europe or the usa but east asia. I think it is no accident paulinho came back to china, after impressing in FC Barcelona. He realized what he has in Guangzhou has higher value than anything to him in fc Barcelona. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_foreign_Chinese_Super_League_players
  26. Weekend 8/18/2019 CHelsea in England- drew but as I said before, Chelsea are in the second phase of the Roman era. In the first phase money, provided high cost coaches side high cost players. Many things were won. I enjoyed the whole ride. But this second phase starts off with a transfer ban, a team of team players, a talisman whose highest skill is ball recovery/movement, not scoring, and a coach who is a playing legend that wants to play an open field system with a squad absent that offensive fulcrum. PSG in France- lost to Renne and the reason was simple, PSG's defense is poor. IT was poor last season, thus no Cup victory. Tuchel's defensive setup is poor. If that is not the first topic to discuss concerning PSG from any in media, then they are missing the true problem, trying to manufacture it out of player roster. POLL- Neymar Out or Tuchel Out? https://twitter.com/Thetenner10/status/1163193259444854787 Atletico MAdrid in Spain- People complain about Video assistance refereeing but I recall most pundits speaking so vervently on video assistance, i don't comprehend how so many pundits can now speak ill, where was this negative narrative to video assistance when naysayers had valid questions, functional positions against, but were drowned out by larger fiscal concerns. Again, my atleti prove they are a true footballing team and the conmebol culture simeone brings into them makes them malleable, flexible , battling. Too many uefa teams have a uefa mindset which is imbalanced. psg/barca/mcfc attack but don't defend. Real madrid play open win lose or fail. Atleti is a proper footballing side that can do it all. The man of the match was savic, throughout the match his play determined most. Felix had the moment of the match. Joao Felix dribbling- his dribbling is not messi -esque cause neymar also dribbles that way and besides his dribbling is felix-esque https://www.weibo.com/7030963893/I2SO0Fp6j?from=page_1005057030963893_profile&wvr=6&mod=weibotime IN AMENDMENT Real Madrid won down to ten men so, referee red cards don't decide matches
  27. Hi Tanisca, I wish I had seen your post sooner. If it's not too late, I would like to direct you to my website - www.daviddoc.com - where you will find a variety of books, fiction and non-fiction. My latest is Body and Soul, which I titled for the classic improvised lyrical phrases of the 1939 Coleman Hawkins jazz performance of the same name. On the first page of the story, which opens in 1940, Peter Daniels plays the song loud enough to drown out the humming tubes on his living room phonograph and dances with his wife to celebrate the birth of their only grandchild, Adam Daniels, the story's protagonist. Though Adam's birth provides joy for his grandparents, it hurts his mother since her son was born bi-racial in 1940 Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The story descriptively outlines the standards of the time and even takes a look back into the early 1900s. After the look further back in history, the book details Adam's journey into manhood, during which he starts a family and a career in law. But like Hawkins adlibbed with unanticipated riffs in his song, I improvise Adam's life story in unexpected shifts that changes the setting to El Centro, CA and even into Mexico. Through it all, the story emphasizes the importance of family and the strength one gains from the connections whether through blood or embraced by choice. And like Hawkins' music, it ultimately demonstrates a new way to tell an old story, ending with a sense of glowing satisfaction. You can access the book here or through the website above: https://www.amazon.com/Body-Soul-David-doc-Robertson/dp/1791630634/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=david+doc+robertson&qid=1566154026&s=gateway&sr=8-1
