“Almost Heaven, West Virginia”

Charles Simms, a transfer RB from Houston, TX was a popular name on the WVU offense on Saturday afternoon. Rushing for 120 yards, Simms ended the game with one touchdown and a target on his back. With his quick feet and powerful running, Simms made a clear statement that he would be a threat to Big 12 defensive squads.

The Mountaineer’s defense was lead by 5-year senior Darwin Cook and Sophomore Karl Joseph. Cook, or “The Cookie Monster,” a Safety and Mountaineer fan favorite, ended the day with six total tackles and one interception that sealed the victory for West Virginia.
While his stats against W&M did not show his true work ethic, Safety Karl Joseph made his presence known in the backfield. As a freshman, Joseph had a breakout season and quickly became one of the key faces for Mountaineer Nation. It is clear that Joseph’s amazing field vision is something that works in WVU’s favor, especially after the Mountaineers struggled to find balance in the backfield during the 2012-2013 season.

The West Virginia coaching staff has made significant improvements to the young team after losing key seniors QB Geno Smith and RB/WR Tavon Austin, who were both signed to NFL teams during the offseason. The question is, are these changes big enough for the Big 12? (photos by:Google)

Does Sanchez Have a Future in New York?
by:Genevieve Noel

On Monday, September 2, 2013 the New York Jets made a major move in signing veteran QB, Brady Quinn. The transaction by the New York team left fans, players, and spectators around the league questioning, former starting QB, Mark Sanchez’s future with the team. Sanchez, who has played with the Jets for four years, took a hard hit to his throwing shoulder from New York Giant DT, Marvin Austin. After the hit, Sanchez was taken into the locker room for better evaluation and since then he has yet to throw a football. It has been nine days since the injury and very little information has been released about Sanchez and his status on the Jets.

Does Sanchez Have a Future in New York?

With the competition for the starting QB spot in full effect, it is easy to question whether or not Sanchez has a future in New York. He is expected to make $8.25 million guaranteed whether he remains a part of the organization or not, but the Jets have not ruled out releasing Sanchez just yet.

It has been reported that rookie QB, Geno Smith, is expected to start Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and that Quinn will be used as a safety net should the Jets need one.
As of right now, Smith is the in the lead for the starting spot and doesn’t necessarily need the W in Week 1, but definitely needs to show he’s ready. The Jets need to keep him confident and ready for the expected, action-packed season opener.

With multiple QB’s in the running for his job, does Sanchez stand a chance on the Jets after multiple shaky seasons and now an injury to his throwing shoulder? What is more of a liability for the Jets, Sanchez himself or releasing him and losing out on $8.25 million? (photos by: Google)

CHEF ALEEM: THE REAL RAPPER’S DELIGHT

CULINARY ARTIST CHEF ALEEM ISPEAK THE AGENCY

Chef Aleem: The Real Rapper’s Delight
By Kitty Irene
C hef Aleem has trained at some of the top fine dining restaurants in the country, ran one of the most popular restaurants in Atlanta, Crave Bistro, and let’s not forget to mention he is currently personal and tour chef to the Grammy Nominated rap sensation, 2Chainz. When asked his motivation behind his art he simple proclaims, “Besides being inspired by some of the best in the culinary profession, being a single father of three is one of the things that forced my hand to perfect my craft of cooking. I had to, for them, because I refused to raise my children on fast food and junk.”
O wning a restaurant down the street from a music studio, the restaurateur stayed busy with hungry artist that would stop by after a grueling night session. That benefit was how the restaurateur was introduced to 2Chainz, “He would stop in after a studio session and over time we just became acquainted; he was one of the regulars. I used to joke with him like when you get big Imma be out there with you man.” Aleem said during our interview. “So when he started blowing up he called and said lets go, so I was like let’s work out a good deal and let’s do it. We went on a couple of weekend tour dates and it worked out pretty good so here we are going on our second year of doing this at his personal home and on tour.”
A leem admits that his look goes against the norm of what many see when they hear of an executive chef. A caramel skin toned man, standing over a hot scorching stove rocking a pair of dark shades, tattoos, and a cigar is not what normally comes to mind. Aleem understanding the norms against him felt it was only just to start a non-profit organization called Cool Kids Cook. The organization works with kids all across Atlanta to teach the fine and honorable art of cooking. It’s not just a cooking class but a lifestyle, that teaches young people about employment, education, nutrition, entrepreneurship, and how it all intertwines to manifest a successful career. A message that has reached to the White House, with First Lady Michelle Obama’s, Let’s Move, America’s Move to Raise a Healthier Generation of Kids campaign. Chef Aleem has made it his personal mission to join forces with the Obama administration to change the way our children interact with nutrition and the culinary arts.
“I just wanted culinary to be an option for young people before it becomes an all that’s left to do kind of thing. Because then you approach it as an all an that’s left to do kind of thing and you become the grind cooks or the stew boys in the kitchens instead of the leaders of the kitchen. That starts at a young age when you need that motivation.”
2014 promises to be a jammed packed year for the rising star as he and his team prepare to launch some major projects that are sure to turn heads and separate him from the traditional celebrity chef. “In life when something is your calling you can’t ignore it. This is my calling to introduce the world to an art form from my point of view. So ya’ll get ready because we’ve taking flight and the trip is going to be a long and exciting one, I can guarantee that!”

BEAUTY INSIDE OUT

THERESA GERALD MODEL VIDEO VIXEN E2W MAGAZINE

I n the late 2000’s she took a interest in modeling when she was stopped walking through her neighborhood Target store by a photographer who told her she had “The Face”. She began to research the fashion and modeling industry where she grew to be influenced by Tyra Banks and her show America’s Next Top Model. She states her biggest influence was Eva Pigford who won cycle 3 because she could relate to her so much.
Gerald then teamed up with Upcoming Entertainment Group and began doing promotional modeling on the side. Once she realized how popular she had gotten in her area she then moved to Albany, New York to jump start her new career as a model. She linked up with EsClass Enterprises and MB Productions for her first video debut, lead role in “They Ain’t Gotta Know” starring rapper Self Made Vega which can be viewed on YouTube. Just as her career was shooting off like a rocket she was faced with reality, her mother had sclerosis of the liver and kidney failure and was soon facing major surgery; which sent her packing back to Flint, MI to be by her mother’s side. But she didn’t let that stop her career or drive.
Since she has returned to the Flint area she has done some promotional modeling, you may have seen her on a few flyers such as hair, nails and toes and a few upcoming designer fashion & hair shows. She recently collabed with Team 810 for a photo-shoot with Harley Davidson and a short role in their upcoming movie Goon 810 to drop summer of 2013. Gerald says look forward to her 2014 calendar and many more projects in the near future because she is not stopping until she puts her city on the map … “New York Born but Flint Raised” Leggo.

METAL IN THE PARK 420

DEATH METAL HEAVY METAL 420 MELTDOWN METAL IN THE PARK E2W MAGAZINE

The show began at 11:00am and did naught but grow with progression; as did anticipation for each act to come. Groups of kith and kin gathered ’round covered benches, smoking, drinking, and over all enjoying the atmosphere during breaks in music. By 1:30pm, when Native Born began, Metal was in full swing. Bloody mouthed moshers emerged from the pit, with sanguineous smiles, only to eagerly return for more. The aroma generally produced on April twentieth wafted about the reciprocated chaos, and climaxed as Hostile took to stage at 4:20. It was then that a contagious feeling of awe betook the on-looking ruck; as bodies collided, in heavy rhythm, to the enthralling dark tones, then, cried encore.Tickets to the Hottest Shows in Las Vegas at VegasTickets.com
From Albatross Overdrive’s classic groove, to Catharsus’s cathartic aggressiveness, 2013’s Metal in the Park provided the setting for all genres of rock to unite with common purpose. When asked to sum up the day’s experience…by consensus, two words: ****ING HOSTILE!

OLYMPIA SHAKESPEARE IS A BRAND!

She is often asked by strangers, “what do you do?” everytime she hits the scene. Olympia is always changing and creates her own trends. She has a variety of clients who couldn’t be more different- a video director one day, a business man who just needs help getting styled for a work event the next day! She will always make sure you are appropriately dressed for the occasion at hand, but with a twist of course.
