Don’t believe the hype

These Rappers Are Not Rich, Bro Rap is deeply rooted in outspoken, unapologetic braggadocio, but the extravagance that comes with the entertainment is often misleading. The pilot episode of NBC’s The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air premiered on September 10, 1990. Will Smith—the star of the series—was new to acting, but acclaim as a prominent rap artist made the Philadelphia native a household face before the sitcom first aired. Two years prior to his debut on network television, Smith and his partner-in-music Jeff Townes released their sophomore album, He’s the DJ, I’m the Rapper, as DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince. At the time, it was the highest-selling hip-hop album to date. Selling three million albums gifted the duo plaques made of platinum, and winning hip-hop’s first GRAMM...

Google is adding DRM to all Android apps, but it’s for the right reasons

Metadata will be added to application files when they are digitally signed and built. That’s a lot of letters to say DRM. Earlier this week, Google quietly rolled out a feature that adds a string of metadata to all APK files (that’s the file type for Android apps) when they are signed by the developer. You can’t install an application that hasn’t been signed during its final build, so that means that all apps built using the latest APK Signature Schemewill have a nice little chunk of DRM built into them. And eventually, your phone will run a version of Android that won’t be able to install apps without it. What the hell? DRM? Why? DRM is why Netflix used to only work on approved phones. But it doesn’t have to be used for evil. We can relax (for now). We ...

This is Napoleon Hill’s most ignored secret to success

The author of ‘Think and Grow Rich’ believed it could change everything It’s crucial to have a trusted network. Napoleon Hill’s “The Path to Personal Power” focuses on one of the most neglected steps in the life coach’s famous program of success — and one that he personally described as critical to the workability of his overall approach: the formation of a Master Mind group. In his 1937 “Think and Grow Rich”, Hill defined the Master Mind (which he always capitalized) as: “Coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people for the attainment of a definite purpose.” In plain terms, Hill’s Master Mind group is, quite simply, a support group or fellowship consisting of two or more members (but usually no more than seven to keep things wieldy), which meets...

But even after six months of preparation time, a number of Golden State ganjapreneurs are still entering the regulatory transition unprepared, leading some experts to predict a few weeks of dirt-cheap pot shop fire sales before a summer of dispensary price hikes and product shortages.

50 Financially Strong Companies Worth Investing In 

Right now, stick with high quality companies. Investors are staring right into the teeth of several major unknowns. First up is the outcome of NAFTA and global trade conditions more broadly following the G-7 debacle this past weekend. Then there is a highly-anticipated Fed meeting this week, where chair Jerome Powell — who has been no friend to the market — will hike rates and possibly strike a hawkish tone (again). To round out the concerns is the aftereffect of Trump’s meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. With the outcomes of these key events uncertain, the market’s next move is far from a known quantity. Hence, it’s more important than ever for investors to stick with financially sound companies. Now isn’t the time to trade garbage. Jim Cra...
