TheSource Feed - Tue, 11/07/2017 - 5:23am

Comcast’s internet service, Xfinity, suffered an outage earlier today across the country. DownDetector.com showed service being down around the United States, including in large cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Boston. So far, TV service and home phones weren’t affected.

The outage appears to have began around 1 PM ET. Some users reported intermittent or slow services, while others were unable to access the web at all.

Level3 issued this statement after resolving the problem: “On Monday, November 6th, our network experienced a service disruption affecting some customers with IP-based services. The disruption was caused by a configuration error. We know how important these services are to our customers. Our technicians were able to restore service within approximately 90 minutes.”

Trump: U.S. Will Arm Japan To Shoot Down North Korean Missiles

TheSource Feed - Tue, 11/07/2017 - 5:15am

U.S. President Donald Trump struck a hard line against North Korea’s nuclear weapons program Monday and urged Japan to do the same as he closed out two days of talks, dinner and golf diplomacy with ally Japan.

The president refused to rule out eventual military action against the north and exhorted dictator Kim Jong Un to stop weapons testing, calling the recent launches of missiles over Japanese territory “a threat to the civilized world and international peace and stability.”

“We will not stand for that,” Trump said at news conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. “The era of strategic patience is over. Some people say my rhetoric is very strong but look what has happened with very weak rhetoric in the last 25 years.”

The president did not deny reports he was frustrated that Japan did not shoot down a ballistic missile North Korea recently fired over its territory. Trump instead declared that Abe “will shoot ’em out of the sky when he completes the purchase of lots of additional military equipment from the United States.”

Trump said Abe had agreed to purchase “massive amounts of military equipment, as he should,” arguing the U.S. makes the “best military equipment, by far.”

Japan’s constitution was revised after World War II to include a clause renouncing war and the country spends only about 1 percent of its GDP on defense. Abe has slowly tried to remove some of the pacifist constraints and is already seeking money to purchase upgraded SM3 interceptors with greater accuracy and range, as well as other advanced missile defense systems.

Under its constitution, Japan can shoot down a missile only when it is aimed at the country or if debris is falling on its territory. But some hawkish members of Abe’s Liberal Democratic Party say that it may be possible to shoot down a missile headed toward Guam if it causes an existential threat to the U.S. as Japan’s ally. Experts say that is questionable.

As part of his Asia tour, Trump will visit South Korea, where he will forgo the customary trip to the demilitarized zone separating north and south — a pilgrimage made by every U.S. presidents except one since Ronald Reagan as a demonstration of solidarity with the South. Instead, Trump planned to visit Camp Humphreys, a military base about 40 miles south of Seoul.

Trump and South Korea’s liberal President Moon Jae-in agree on the need to pressure the North with sanctions and other deterrence measures. But Trump has warned of unleashing “fire and fury,” threatened to “totally destroy” the North, if necessary, and repeatedly insisted that all options are on the table. Moon, meanwhile, favors dialogue as the best strategy for defusing the nuclear tension and vehemently opposes a potential military clash that could cause enormous casualties in South Korea.

Trade also is expected to be a major topic of discussion: Trump has considered pulling out of the United States-Korea Free Trade Agreement, also known as KORUS, blaming it for the U.S.-South Korea trade deficit.

TheSource Feed - Mon, 11/06/2017 - 10:54pm

Hip-hop media and journalism changes along with the advancement of technology. That means way more pixels and way less paper. However, it’s hard not to gush over how it all started.

Let’s think back to a time before Soundcloud links. The year was 1997 and “newbies” Missy Elliot, Mase, and Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz released their debut albums. R&B songstress Erykah Badu had just went platinum for her album, ‘Live’ which featured her radio hit, “Call Tyrone”, and both Biggie and Tupac’s labels released albums for the first time following their deaths.

The 90’s was a defining year for hip-hop and ironically was a decade where hip-hop didn’t get much love from the mainstream. However, The Source was there championing artist for their contributions to the genre while-hip-hop was rapidly gaining popularity all over the world. In due time, hip-hop became and still remains one of the most popular and arguably,authentic genre of music in the U.S.

So how does this relate to hip-hop today? Plainly put, without the past there would be no present. 20 years ago this year, in 1997, artist were planting the seeds for hip-hop so that the music can continue to thrive in our omnipresent digital landscape. All the while, The Source has been there capturing the good, bad, and indifferent, unapologetically. We can confidently say we’ve been hand and hand with hip-hop since the beginning and it’s been a journey of unconditional love.

To celebrate, we’re traveling down memory lane and sharing covers that turned 20 years old this year. The likes of Jay Z, The Fugees, Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, Master P, and lots of others flicked it up for the culture and created timeless hip-hop moments. Check out the gallery below for more.

3-Year-Old Ayden Brown Loses his Battle to Lung Cancer

TheSource Feed - Mon, 11/06/2017 - 10:14pm

Words by Alexandra Salandy 

The strong and precious 3-year-old Ayden Brown lost his battle to stage 4 Lung Cancer on Nov. 3, according to his mother Lindsey Licari.

Ayden’s story went viral after his mom posted videos and pictures about his condition on social media. Licari explained that her reasoning for wanting Ayden’s story to be public was to increase awareness and educate people about the terrible horrors of childhood cancer.

“I knew if this disease was going to take Ayden, everybody in the world would know who my son is,” said Licari. “Everybody will know Ayden Setoshi Brown. He was three years old. He could tell you every planet in the solar system. He was phenomenally smart and he loved me so much, and I loved him too. He didn’t deserve to die.”

The family started a nonprofit organization called Ayden’s Army of Angels Inc. The organization’s purpose is to “Unite all parents with this same nightmare, to find hope, comfort and to collectively work together to find answers.”  Ayden’s story touched the lives of many and raised over $250, 000 on GoFundMe to help with medical expenses.

Licari told Fox5Vegas, “The financial support from the community paid for all their expenses in Arizona, medical equipment in their home, appointments and much more.”

Baby Ayden’s story has touched so many the lives. He is receiving an outpour of love and support all over social media. Celebrities such as Cardi B, shared a picture of him on Instagram and sent her condolences to the family.

Ayden Brown was such a strong little boy. His strength even shocked his doctors, who originally gave him only three weeks to survive. However, Ayden surpassed that point.

Trying to hold back the tears Licari explained her last few moments with her son on Facebook Live.

“Today, I lost my son. In this world, there was not one doctor, one person that could offer my son any options at all. And he aspirated and stopped breathing. And I tried to do CPR and bring Ayden back. But I wasn’t able to. And they tried again, the hospital six times,” she said, in part. “And even when I saw lines straight, I still knew God could still help him. But Ayden’s body couldn’t take anymore. So today, I lost Ayden because we live in a world that doesn’t prepare for childhood cancer.”

The mother is now making it her mission to help other families who are going through similar situations.

“Ayden is a bad case, and he’s been amazingly blessed with support and love but there’s a lot of families besides me and Ayden too that are out there suffering and don’t have a voice and don’t have resources. At least your necessities should not be a worry while you fight for your kids,” she said.

Meek Mill Sentenced To 2-4 Years In Prison For Violating Probation

Meek Mill was found guilty of violating his probation in court today (Nov. 6) and has been sentenced to two-to-four years in state prison, according to local CBS reporter Joe Holden.

The Philadelphia rapper was arrested in March for fighting at a St. Louis airport and then again in August for reckless driving in New York City. Meek took a plea deal for the NYC case and had the assault case dropped, but today the Philly judge sentenced Meek to a minimum of two years in prison for violating the probation sentence he got from his weapons and drugs case.

Zach LaVine Signs New Adidas sneaker Deal, After Leaving Nike

TheSource Feed - Mon, 11/06/2017 - 6:44pm

Words by Jason Cordner

Nike’s stronghold on the sneaker industry has been loosening for some time now.

Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine has signed a four-year sneaker deal with Adidas that could be worth as much as $35 million, according to ESPN’s Nick DePaula. The 2x NBA dunk contest champion has repped for Nike in his first three seasons, but the brand recently waived a “match clause” in his contract, allowing him to sign on with Adidas.

BREAKING: Bulls’ @ZachLaVine agrees to a 4-year shoe deal with Adidas worth up to $35 million, paving way for the 22 year-old to become a future face of the brand.

Full story on @ESPN: https://t.co/OPkcKgzdK7

— Nick DePaula (@NickDePaula) November 3, 2017

Right now, Adidas has signature shoes with Derrick RoseJames Harden, and Damian Lillard. LaVine gives the company another high-profile player — he won two Slam Dunk Contests and averaged nearly 19 points last season with Minnesota. LaVine hasn’t played a game for Chicago yet, still recovering from an ACL injury suffered last spring.

Makes Sense For Addias To Go After a Bull

LaVine is Adidas’ chance to get back in on the wing market, and in a premier NBA market, no less. Chicago, of course, is famed for Michael Jordan in the ‘90s. The Bulls have a certain mystique around them, and LaVine has a chance to emerge as a star for the team.

Mariah Carey, N.W.A., Jermaine Dupri Snag Nods For Songwriters Hall of Fame

TheSource Feed - Mon, 11/06/2017 - 6:32pm

By Ime Ekpo

When your hit song is still being praised after 20 years, it only proves the potency of your lyrical skill set.

Next year on June 14th, the 2018 Songwriters Hall of Fame Gala will take place in New York City where six songwriters or songwriting groups will be inducted for their great influence on music culture. The organization has revealed to the Associated Press vocal powerhouse Mariah Carey, legendary golden era hip-hop collective N.W.A., and many others as nominees for the 2018 Songwriters Hall of Fame.

This will be the first time Carey has been nominated for the prestigious award which will bestow her record as the single artist with the most number one hits on the Billboard 100 chart reigning at 18 songs, and she is responsible for co-writing 17 of them. Mariah hits in the likes of “We Belong Together,” “Hero,” and “One Sweet” showcase her clever pen skills which lead listeners to a blissful experience. Jermaine Dupri, who has co-written for the songbird has also been nominated as a non-performing songwriter.

As for the world’s most dangerous group, N.W.A. this will also be their first nod for the Songwriters Hall of Fame, which follows the calm of the collective’s 201.6 million box-office earning biopic, Straight Outta Compton (2015). In 1988, N.W.A. released their debut album Straight Outta Compton, which changed the majority of the world’s outlook on hip-hop culture. “Fuck tha Police” is the track that made the legacy of N.W.A. everlasting. The song sparked mass controversy due to its blatant objection against police brutality and racial profiling which effectively exasperated the FBI, and triggered the discussion of censorship in hip-hop music.

If rewarded, N.W.A. will score another win for hip-hop culture in the exalted hall after Jay-Z, who was inducted into the 2017 Songwriters Hall of Fame back in June.

Legendary musical class acts Kool and the Gang, the Isley Brothers, Tracy Chapman, Jimmy Cliff, John Mellencamp, Alan Jackson, Tom Waits, Chrissie Hynde, Alice Cooper and Tom T. Hall also stand as performing nominees.

Mother Fired From Gov’t Job For Giving Trump Motorcade The Middle Finger

TheSource Feed - Mon, 11/06/2017 - 4:08pm

A woman whose picture went viral after she raised her middle finger at Donald Trump as his motorcade passed her on her bicycle has been fired from her job.

Juli Briskman was cycling in Virginia last month when she gave up the gesture in a reflex reaction to Trump’s policies, she said.

“He was passing by and my blood just started to boil,” she told the Huffington Post. “I’m thinking, Daca recipients are getting kicked out. He pulled ads for open enrollment in Obamacare. Only one third of Puerto Rico has power. I’m thinking, he’s at the damn golf course again.”

A photographer traveling with the presidential motorcade snapped Briskman’s picture and the image quickly spread across news outlets and social media. Many hailed Briskman as a hero, with some saying she should run in the 2020 election. Late-night comedy hosts also picked up the story.

Briskman had been working as a marketing and communications specialist for a Virginia-based federal contractor, Akima, for six months. She thought it best to alert the HR department to the online fuss. Bosses then called her into a meeting, she said.

“They said, ‘We’re separating from you,’” Briskman said. “‘Basically, you cannot have lewd or obscene things in your social media.’ So they were calling flipping him off “obscene”.

She said the company was displeased she had used the image as her profile picture on Twitter and Facebook, and told her it violated social media policy and could hurt the company’s reputation as a government contractor.

Briskman said she pointed out that her social media pages do not mention her employer, and that the incident happened on her own time. She also said another employee had written a profane insult about someone on Facebook, but had been allowed to keep his job after deleting the post and being reprimanded.

Virginia, however, has “at will” employment laws, meaning private-sector employers can fire people for any reason.

Suddenly, the 50-year-old mother of two found herself looking for a new job.

Briskman, who votes Democratic, said she planned to look for a new job with an advocacy group she believes in, such as Planned Parenthood or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

After leaving his Virginia golf club and before passing Briskman, Trump’s motorcade passed a pedestrian who gave a vigorous thumbs-down gesture. Another woman had been standing outside the entrance to the golf club, holding a sign saying “Impeach”.

As news of Briskman’s firing spread, many social media users asked why she was being penalized for expressing free speech on her own time, under the first amendment to the US constitution.

Akima did not immediately respond to a request for comment. On Monday, its website went down. Someone began a crowdfunding page online to raise money for Briskman.
