Nigerian artist Omah Lay recently honored the Kitenge edition of the Pizza and Wine Festival at the Royal Gardenia Gardens. During a press conference, Omah Lay revealed that the two-day festival was driven by its large fan base in Kenya.

“I have a lot of love from Kenya. I have a lot of fans coming from Kenya. I want to connect with my fans. For me, it’s not about the money,” said the Lolo hitmaker.

Elsewhere, award-winning Nigerian highlife singer and songwriter Adekunle Gold delighted fans during a live performance in Nairobi at the Waterfront Karen. That’s not all; Jamaican singer Shauna McKenzie, aka Etana, lit up the stage at the Pamoja festival in Nairobi.

In fact, the list of artists who have graced Kenyan concerts could extend from here to Timbuktu. Let’s not start with those who have booked tickets for the December shows. Chinsea Lee aka Shensea recently confirmed that she is coming to Kenya. The 25-year-old dancehall artist is famous for hits such as Sidechick song, Bad habit and Bad alone.

Other people who packed their bags included Jamaican artist and DJ Andre Hugh Surherland aka Popcaan who will be performing on New Years Eve. Charly Black aka Desmond Mendez announced his planned visit to Kenya through an Instagram video. The Sidung hitmaker will perform on December 31 at Ngong Racecourse. The New Year’s visit will be his first to the country. Romain Virgo, Kranium have also confirmed their intention to visit the country.

What makes Kenya so attractive to Nigerian, Tanzanian and even Jamaican artists? According to the event’s organizer, Eddy Brown, “They love everything because they feed their ears what Kenyans love to hear; which is dance and this is where Jamaican artists lead. the day because of their style of music which appeals to the Kenyan market “.

Public relations specialist Anyiko Owoko strongly agrees as she believes Kenya is the music hub of East Africa and the entertainment buzz is influencing what’s going on in the industry.

“Kenya is also a prime location for international artists who benefit from a larger audience and fan base here,” she said. The Nairobiian.

This love runs so deep that Jamaican artist Garfield Spence aka Konshenz has canceled offers closer to his home to attend a show in Kenya.

“I had four offers for December 31st very close to my home and less hassle, but I chose Kenya. Due to the raw vibe and energy … we love your country and your people and they love us back … “

Some people argue that Kenya’s large fan base is lucrative for international artists who reap huge financial rewards.

“Nobody is trying to milk your country. Your country just has a mad love for all kinds of music,” Konshenz said in response to the claim. “Are you mad at international artists who love your country? He told comedian Eric Omondi who recently pleaded for more airtime for local music.

Some artists like Bien Aime by Sauti Sol silenced these critics. In an interview on Jalang’o TV, Bien called out musicians who reject international artists visiting the country.

“It’s not very African of us to be angry with other Africans who come to make money here … it’s xenophobia,” he said.

The famous singer further urged local artists to develop a global mindset so that they can also advance in their musical careers. He said, “Let Africans come and make money here and you have a global mindset, go and make money in other countries …”

But what do Kenyans really want? international or local shows?

“International artists always win because Kenyans love their sound, especially if they can dance and sing, which ultimately brings in more income than a single Kenyan event in a row,” said event organizer Edgar Kakoyo aka Eddy Brown.

Lately, event planners and artists have been receptive to the fusion of local and international artists. According to Eddy, these shows attract a larger audience.

“If you mix them up, you appeal to a bigger crowd that we took that route and booked local Kenyan performers as well,” he said. The Nairobiian.

Together, they co-run the school Center for transformative justice in education, which describes itself as “a community-university collaboration serving practitioners and researchers committed to disrupting racial inequalities in education by creating restorative, humanizing and justice-seeking teaching and learning communities.”

They sat down for a chat with Chancellor Gary S. May – available to watch today (November 30) – about their work in Davis and Sacramento, their passion for teaching, their new book and more.

They – along with Lorena Márquez, assistant professor of Chicana / o studies – were responsible for the first installment of Quarter at Aggie Square, a program in which undergraduates take classes and participate in internships that seek to connect the movements. historical social with the present. daytime problems.

In their interview with May, the Winns discussed the ways they tried to continue the momentum of this program by inviting guests – known as Practitioners in Residence – with connections to the Sacramento community, such as principals, the director of diversity, equity and inclusion for a community theater, an organizer of events and more.

“It’s quite a lineup,” replied May. “I hope to have the chance to meet some of them as well.”

Maisha Winn said the practitioners fit into the centre’s theme for the academic year, “Sacramento Futures.”

They also hope to interest more students in the past, particularly in the history of independent black institutions of the 1960s and 1970s, which were “the response of black parents to unequal or unfair educational experiences in public schools from kindergarten to grade 12. Grade 12, ”Maisha Winn mentioned.

The Transformative Justice in Education Center houses an archive with information on these organizations, including documents that belonged to Maisha Winn’s father, who helped found an Africa-focused Saturday school in Oak Park.

May said that just like UC Davis’ response to COVID-19, like her work with Healthy Davis Together, has done a lot to change the way people think about the university and its relationship with the community of Davis, Aggie Square and its related businesses could do the same in Sacramento.

The full episode is available above.

Some of the organizers who planned the rally that took place on the Ellipse of the White House on January 6 are said to have used hard-to-trace cellphones for their “higher-level” communications with former President Trump’s team. .

Kylie Kremer, a senior official with the “March for Trump” group who helped plan the Ellipse rally, asked an aide to retrieve three cellphones days before January 6, according to three sources involved in the event. One of the sources, a member of the “March for Trump” team, said Kremer insisted that the phones be bought in cash and described it as “of the utmost importance.”

All three sources said Kylie Kremer took one of the phones and used it to communicate with top White House and Trump campaign officials, including Eric Trump, the president’s second eldest son, who heads the family’s real estate business; Lara Trump, Eric’s wife and former senior consultant to the Trump campaign; Mark Meadows, the former White House chief of staff; and Katrina Pierson, a Trump surrogate and campaign consultant.

The member said a second phone was handed over to Amy Kremer, Kylie Kremer’s mother and another key organizer of the rally. The team member said he did not know for whom the third phone was purchased.

“It was around the time of planning the event on the Ellipse, she needed cell phones to communicate with high level people, so she put it,” said the March For Trump team member at Rolling Stone, referencing Kylie Kremer.

Kylie and Amy Kremer did not immediately respond to a recorded request for comment.

According to the three sources, some of the most crucial planning conversations between major rally organizers and Trump’s inner circle have taken place on these burner phones. “They were planning all kinds of things, marches and rallies. Any conversation she’s had with the White House or the Trump family has been on these phones, ”the team member said of Kylie Kremer.

Spokesmen for President Trump and Meadows also did not respond to a request for comment. Eric Trump, Lara Trump and Pierson did not respond to requests for comment.

Burner phones – inexpensive prepaid cells designed for temporary use – don’t require users to have an account. This makes them difficult to trace and ideal for those seeking anonymity – particularly if they are purchased for cash. The use of burner phones could make it more difficult for congressional investigators to find evidence of coordination between the Trump team and rally organizers.

The House special committee on the January 6 attack examined the role played by Trump and his allies in what the committee described as “efforts to overturn the rule of law, to overturn the election results of the United States. November 3, 2020 or otherwise hamper the peaceful transfer of power. As part of the effort, the committee subpoenaed documents from the Kremers, other “March For Trump” organizers, rally planners and senior Trump advisers, including members of his House staff. Blanche and her campaign team. The committee has has received “Thousands of pages of tapes” and, according to a lawyer familiar with the investigation, that includes “tons” of group text conversations. (The committee declined to comment.) Rolling Stone reviewed group texts from rally organizers which show the Kremers claiming to have worked with Trump’s team in the White House to plan the Ellipse event.

Kylie and Amy Kremer helped lead the nationwide ‘March For Trump’ bus tour in which speakers promoted false conspiracy theories about last November’s election and called for the results to be quashed. This tour culminated on Jan. 6 with the big “Save America” rally on the White House ellipse, which took place as Trump’s loss was certified on the United States Capitol. The Kremers also run an organization called “Women for America First”, which has been licensed for the Ellipse rally.

Asset spoke at the Ellipse rally on January 6 and they are expected to “walk down Pennsylvania Avenue” to the Capitol, which is located about 1.5 miles from the Ellipse. In his remarks, the former president told the crowd both to “fight like hell” and “to make your voice heard in a peaceful and patriotic manner”. At the end of the speech, crowds of Trump supporters walked through barricades at the Capitol complex. Some supporters broke into the building and spent hours attacking Capitol Police and threatening violence against lawmakers, an attack that delayed President Biden’s certification of victory in the 2020 election.

There was no evidence that the Kremers and other rally planners encouraged or planned violence in the group text messages reviewed by Rolling Stone. However, critics have argued that Trump and the leaders who encouraged thousands of his supporters to come to Washington when the vote was certified deserve some of the blame for the violence because of their pre-January. 6 rhetoric and fiery content from the former president’s speech at the Ellipse rally.

The three sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the ongoing investigation into the Jan.6 Capitol attack, said Kylie asked the assistant to purchase the three “burner phones” as the group drove through Palm Springs, California, about a week before the Ellipse Event. Based on the group’s website, which has since been discontinued, the tour began on December 27, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada before continuing to California.

There could still be evidence of direct communications between Kylie Kremer and the White House in more traditional phone records. The team member says there have been rare exceptions in which Kylie Kremer has used her regular phone to communicate with Trump officials. “She once spoke with Mark Meadows on her home phone, but mostly on the burner’s phone,” the team member said.

Sources who spoke to Rolling Stone about the phones also describe an incident that happened around last Christmas as the “March For Trump” bus tour kicked off in Las Vegas – just before the phones were allegedly purchased. . According to the sources, the group stayed at the Trump International Hotel Las Vegas, which is co-ownership and managed by the real estate company of the former president. The team member said the group hoped to park their bus, which was emblazoned featuring logos, a photo of Trump and a message stating “PROTECT THE INTEGRITY OF ELECTIONS” outside the hotel. However, the team member said the hotel management initially declined due to political sensitivities and lack of space in front of the building.

“The hotel manager said, ‘There’s no way to have this here, unless you can get a Trump family member on the phone,'” the team member recalls. .

The photos reviewed by Rolling Stone showed the bus parked prominently outside the hotel’s main entrance. According to the team member, he was able to park because of calls from the Kremers to the Trump family.

“Amy and Kylie,” says the team member, “immediately got Eric and Lara on the phone. “

“We are not happy to see him disappear”: impending demolition of Papa’aloa Gym sparks anger https://roller-forum.info/2021/11/22/we-are-not-happy-to-see-him-disappear-impending-demolition-of-papaaloa-gym-sparks-anger/ Mon, 22 Nov 2021 10:05:00 +0000 https://roller-forum.info/2021/11/22/we-are-not-happy-to-see-him-disappear-impending-demolition-of-papaaloa-gym-sparks-anger/ Emotions ran high at an emergency community meeting in the evening on November 10 outside the Papa’aloa Gymnasium.

Emotions ran high at an emergency community meeting in the evening on November 10 outside the Papa’aloa Gymnasium.

Hawaii County Parks and Recreation officials and County Councilor Heather Kimball held the meeting to announce the inevitable demolition of the decades-old plantation-style gym.

“We are very unhappy with this. It is one of our recreational facilities and we are not happy to see it disappear ”, declared the director of parks and recreation, Maurice Messina. “We requested the meeting so that people weren’t surprised by what was going on, and we were waiting for the response.”

The gymnasium has been closed indefinitely since the start of COVID-19 in March 2020. It was intermittently closed for repairs before that, according to Messina.

Improvements are planned for the tennis courts, annex and baseball field at Papa’aloa Park to bring them into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The county intended to renovate the gymnasium while these upgrades were being made, but it was deemed unrecoverable after extensive termite damage was found throughout the building, according to parks and recreation planner James Komata.

According to Parks and Recreation officials, in October, they found they couldn’t save the gymnasium.

Members of the public who attended the meeting objected to the announcement and said there were issues with the gym that had not been resolved in years.

“In 10 years, something has changed. The maintenance has stopped, ”said community member Lisa Barton. “I was at every meeting to ask and wait for someone to maintain the building. All of my children grew up here. We have done so much good. We want to see something saved.

In a separate interview with the Tribune-Herald after the meeting, Barton said the gymnasium has been neglected by the county for years.

“The windows started shattering about 10 years ago, and soon after, duct tape spilled around the gym from the lead paint exposed,” Barton said. “This tape had been online for about five years. The windows are still broken.

During that time, Barton said no county employees came to repaint the gymnasium to seal the lead paint.

“This is what we had to do. Other communities don’t have to fight to keep their school, their swimming pool or their police station open, ”Barton said in the interview. “We had to fight for everything because we are the least populated area. “

After helping restore several buildings in Hamakua, Barton believes the gymnasium is salvageable and is disappointed that it is demolished.

“There has been no maintenance done for over 10 years, and you expect it to stay the same. They want to tear it down because they haven’t maintained it, ”Barton told the Tribune-Herald. “Even in an emergency meeting at 5pm, there were a ton of people there because we care about this place and we don’t want to see it go away.”

Some community members present at the meeting accepted the news of the demolition, but were disappointed that there was no plan to replace the recreation facility.

“People would probably feel better if they were reassured that there would be something to replace the gym,” Amber Wilson said at the meeting. “Because I think what people are hearing is that you are tearing this down, but you have undefined plans to put something in its place.”

Kimball responded by saying she didn’t want to make any promises she couldn’t keep.

“The biggest question mark is what the site will look like after demolition and reinforcement of the slope,” Kimball said. “There will probably be contamination in the ground as well, but at least we know what footprint we’ll have to play with to potentially build something. “

While many questioned why park funds could not be allocated to build a new gymnasium, Messina said the last gymnasium built on Ka’u Island cost the county $ 17 million.

“This community, Hamakua in general, has experienced decades of neglect. Whether you’re talking about gyms, bridges, sewage, endless stuff keeps me awake at night, ”Kimball said at the meeting. “There’s a lot to balance and a lot of money at stake. It’s not as easy as reallocating money from here to there.

“At least once it’s gone, we have an opportunity to build something else,” Kimball continued.

Recreation administrator Mason Souza spoke at the meeting to address the immediate need for recreation facilities for the keiki.

“I am very disappointed that he came to this place. I grew up in this plantation community and remember when they fixed the gymnasium in 1974, ”Souza said. “In the future, my staff and I will work hard to put things together and find facilities for our children to play basketball, volleyball or whatever.”

Souza plans to work with local gym trainers and schools to find a way to provide recreational activities for kids who lose their gym.

When the meeting opened up to questions from the community, Dave Molenaar stood up and suggested that a group get together to imagine what the park might look like.

“We have to build something that meets the needs of each of us,” Molenaar said. “We need a playground for the kids, more parking, maybe we can turn the baseball field into a space for a gymnasium. What we need is to form a group to dream of what everyone wants.

In a follow-up interview with the Tribune-Herald, Kimball said she plans something like this to happen in the future and hopes she can work with a group to improve the park.

“After we demolish the gymnasium, we’ll have a good idea of ​​what we can do with the space,” Kimball said. “I’m working with parks and recreation and hopefully we can get a planning group together for a vision of what they want the park to look like in the future.”

Kimball explained during the meeting that a new facility would not be built without the help of the community. When it’s time to put projects on the Capitol Improvement Project budget list, Kimball wants the community to give their testimony on why they need a gymnasium.

“When we get to a point for allocating funds, this will also be a time to show up for board meetings or write letters,” Kimball said. “I was so excited to see so many people at the reunion so concerned with the hobbies of our children, adults and kupuna.”

At the meeting, Kimball circulated a signup list for her weekly email newsletters and said she plans to keep the community up to date with developments.

“We are grateful to people who come forward and take the time to understand what the process is to get there,” Messina said. “The mayor understands what it means to lose a facility, and we are asking the community to help us navigate our way and make it a priority. “

Work on the ADA accessibility project at Papa’aloa Park will begin last week and end in June, according to Parks and Recreation. The baseball field will remain open for the duration of the work.

Consultants will need to examine the extent of hazardous materials in the gymnasium and floor before negotiating a price and starting the demolition.

Before the gymnasium is officially demolished, Kimball wants to organize a formal event for the community.

“I think having a formal event where we can get everyone together again, they can bring photos and share memories on the gym,” Kimball. “We know it’s more than losing public space, the gymnasium is an important part of the history of the community. “

WINCHESTER – The Frederick County Planning Commission on Wednesday unanimously recommended approving a conditional use permit for a special events facility at 1454 Apple Pie Ridge Road.

Katherine Solenberger has applied for permission to organize weddings and other similar types of private events. His approximately 303.81-acre property includes a historic residence, a log cabin, and five farm buildings. She intends to use the restored bank barn to organize special events.

The conditions of the permit state that events must not begin before noon and that all related events and activities must end by 11:00 p.m. Open-air amplified music must end at 9:00 p.m. The permit also states that special events cannot accommodate more than 200 people.

County planner Tyler Klein told the commission that Solenberger did not intend to have cooking facilities on site and that all food would come from outside catering. He also said there is a designated parking area that can accommodate up to 100 vehicles.

The case will be submitted to the supervisory board on December 8.

Also at the meeting, the commission unanimously recommended the approval of a UPC for a cooperative agricultural supply facility at 5844 Valley Pike, near Stephens City. Commission Member Gary Oates withdrew from the vote as he is the President of GreyWolf Inc, which prepared the application on behalf of Southern States Winchester Cooperative LLC.

An agricultural supply cooperative is primarily engaged in the retail or wholesale distribution of livestock and feed, fertilizers, agricultural chemicals, pesticides, and other agricultural products or services.

The case will also be submitted to the supervisory board on December 8.

President Kevin Kenney and Commissioners Robert Molden, Kay Dawson, Christopher Mohn, Charles Triplett, Roger Thomas, Paige Manuel, John Jewell, Betsy Brumback, Elizabeth Kozel and Gary Oates attended the meeting at the County Administrative Building.

If you asked her, Jenna wouldn’t call herself an event planner or a concierge. She’s just the person who’s always on the outside, the face of a new DC service – Ask Jenna – who will plan and personalize your days and evenings.

For $ 129 per month, Ask Jenna hosts outings that include sports games, concerts, outdoor recreation, Michelin-starred meals, and other activities for its members. Customers can choose from a variety of options based on preferences they indicate in their membership profiles and a half hour call with an “experienced architect”. They also get Notes from Jenna — a guide on how to optimize their experience.

It’s a lot of work for a woman who isn’t even real.

“Jenna” is actually Janece Kleban and Jenny Shtipelman’s concoction, a combination of their names and the avatar behind their service. The duo went from good friends to business partners. “You ask Jenna, and she’ll take care of it for you,” said Shtipelman.

The idea came to Kleban, originally from DC, after arranging a date with her husband. “I ended up marrying a guy who can’t plan anything,” Kleban says, “Anything. He suggested that she turn her ability to organize fun days into a full-time job.

She stepped down as director of development at Goodwill of Greater Washington, contacted Shtipelman, senior vice president of the National Capital Bank of Washington, and the two opened the member service in 2019.

Months later, Ask Jenna found herself in a pandemic-stricken town with many locals reluctant to go out as before. Kleban says residents’ varying levels of comfort have forced them to think creatively and turn to more outdoor and virtual experiences. Today, Kleban and Shtipelman are planning outings for around fifty members and their guests. “Our sweet spot are people in their mid-thirties to mid-fifties,” says Kleban, “people who are entrepreneurs, people who are executives or people in leadership positions”.

Kleban says the company will hire full-time staff in 2022 as it rolls out an SMS platform to keep members up to date with their experiences. Eventually, they hope to extend the concept to other cities.

“The current goal is to really optimize the way we use this technology and to optimize the business relationships that [Shtipelman] brings, ”says Kleban.
