Kanye West creating God Save America’ clothing | People

Kanye West has plans to create “God Save America” clothing.

The ‘Bound 2’ rapper has reportedly filed a patent to have the slogan – thought to be part of his Presidential campaign – adorned on T-shirts, jumpers and hoodies, similar to President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan, TMZ reports.

It comes after Kanye promised to “build a stronger country’ in his first campaign advertisement, which shows him standing in front of a black and white American flag as he discusses his desire to “revive” America’s “commitment to faith”.

He says in the clip: “To live up to our dream, we must have vision. We as a people will revive our nation’s commitment to faith, to what our constitution calls the free exercise of religion, including, of course, prayer. Through prayer, faith can be restored. We as a people are called to a greater purpose than ourselves. We are

Kentucky attorney general accuses attorney for Breonna Taylor’s family of creating ‘falsehoods’

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron criticized Ben Crump, an attorney who has been representing the families of individuals harmed in police shootings.

During an interview on Tuesday, Cameron accused Crump of spinning false narratives about shootings to mislead the public about cases. He specifically condemned Crump’s accusation that the attorney general’s office misled the grand jury in its consideration of charges against the officers involved in Breonna Taylor’s death.

“This is the Ben Crump model. He goes into a city, creates a narrative, cherry-picks facts to establish, to prove that narrative, creates chaos in a community, misrepresents the facts, and then, he leaves with his money and then asks the community to pick up the pieces,” Cameron told Fox and Friends. “It is terribly irresponsible on his part to push such narratives, such falsehoods.”

“As the attorney general, I don’t have the luxury

Businesses creating dream wedding for bride with cancer

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — Nicole Weiss and David Rhoades’ wedding plans took an abrupt turn on July 31 when Weiss was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

In the midst of mounting medical bills and Weiss’ radiation and chemotherapy, Black Hills businesses are teaming up to give the Rapid City couple a wedding celebration on Oct. 18.

Weiss is battling stage 4 glioma, a rare mutation of a cancerous tumor. Though it isn’t curable, doctors hope to slow its progression. Weiss is undergoing treatment at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. High school sweethearts Weiss, 28, and Rhoades, 29, had been planning to marry in spring 2021, the Rapid CIty Journal reported.

“When we found out about my diagnosis, I thought, ‘Why have we waited so long? Let’s just get married.’ We’ve been together 11 years,” Weiss said.

These sisters are creating yoga mats featuring women of all skin tones

For Julia and Cornelia Gibson, fitness is a family affair. The sisters workout best when they’re together, but even when they’re apart, they are cheering each other on.

Outside their sisterly bond, however, they found that the same sense of encouragement and motivation was not universal.

When looking at the fitness industry and wellness spaces, they saw less and less women who looked like them — women with varying skin tones and body types.

So, the two women decided to do something about it.

In the fall of 2019, the New York City natives founded Toned by BaggedEm, a fitness-focused brand that not only strives to make women feel seen but also motivates them to push through their fitness obstacles.

The video discussion — timed to Native Women’s Equal Pay Day —included advocates and activists from all paths, such as Megan Rapinoe, Minnesota Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan, Student Debt Crisis Executive Director Natalia Abrams, activist Aminah Ghaffar, and advocate Mia Ives-Rublee. Throughout the Facebook Live, which you can watch here, the group spoke about issues that affect women of different backgrounds, all while celebrating the work of Millennial and Gen Z changemakers.

With $18M in new funding, Braintrust says it’s creating a fairer model for freelancers

Braintrust, a network for freelance technical and design talent that launched over the summer, is announcing that it has raised $18 million in new funding.

Co-founder and CEO Adam Jackson has written for TechCrunch about how tech companies need to treat independent contractors with more empathy. He told me via email that the San Francisco-based startup is making that idea a reality by offering a very different approach than existing marketplaces for freelance work.

For one thing, Braintrust only charges the companies doing the hiring — freelancers won’t have to pay to join or to bid on a project, and Braintrust won’t charge a fee on their project payments. In addition, the startup is using a cryptocurrency token that it calls Btrust to reward users who build the network, for example by inviting new customers or vetting freelancers. Apparently, the token will give users a stake in how the network

Clean Beauty: Creating What’s Possible in Uncertain Times

My cousin Jackie was 26 years old when she found out she had Stage 4 lung cancer. As an athlete that never smoked and lived a healthy lifestyle, you can imagine how shocking this news was for her and our family.

When it metastasized to her brain, Jackie needed daily radiation treatments which caused hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin) and thick, coarse hair growth all over her face. When this happened, she didn’t want to see anyone and she felt weaker and sicker by the minute. She had always been so vibrant and in good spirits even when she was in pain or not feeling well. When the darkening of her skin happened, her manicurist asked if she could wax her face just to see what would happen. Doing so removed all the dark spots and the thick, coarse hair. Jackie immediately felt better and stronger, her mood and confidence
