first_imgTara Reed shared four very important major keys on how to create an app without knowing one ounce of code. Utilizing different tools and resources, here are her four secrets to developer freedom:You can create an app in just a few weeks by using visual programming tools. Stop listening to your friends. Instead, publicly promote your app, build a wait list and use it to get feedback that will save you time and money. The Swag Surf Lunch Break This is one time that you definitely should have had FOMO. From swag surfing during the lunch break to Rodney Williams, the founder and CEO of Lisnr, expressing why it’s good to be petty, as a black millennial, this conference was everything that you needed and more. If you missed it, here are 10 reasons why you should have been there. If efforts to showcase the use case for her new product, Jessica Matthews, founder and CEO of Uncharted Play, pulled out a jump rope and in three-inch stilettos, proceeded to show the audience how Pulse, the energy harnessing jump rope, works. After, a few rotations and watching silver heels bling through the air, Jessica plugged the rope into Pulse Lamps that lit up like the Empire State Building on a New York City night. That, my friends, is what I call #BlackGirlMagic.Jessica Matthews – Image: Blavity/Andre Pennycooke When all was said and done, in traditional Blavity style, the participants got in formation and spoke about why this conference was so needed, while giving their key takeaways. In addition, many of them discussed what they were currently working on. Just like Drake and Future, Blavity was definitely the plug.One noteworthy testimony came from a 15-year-old audience member who came with his father and failed to mention that he was about to start cutting onions before he spoke. “There are a lot of us who are confused. We’ve been shown the wrong things in the media and we’re lost and I think you all are great examples of what we can be and I just want to thank you all for coming out,” annndddd my eyes just wouldn’t stop watering. The very FIRST thing you should do is create a 25% project. This is to test and validate that the rest of the product is even worth finishing. And I Quote, “I think there should be more black entrepreneurs” – Pinterest CEO, Ben Silbermann Mandela Sharing All of Her Tweetables Parties, Parties and More Parties… Tara Reed’s Cheat Sheet on Apps Without Code be_ixf; php_sdk; php_sdk_1.4.18 https://www.blackenterprise.com/blavitys-afro-tech-conference/ https://www.blackenterprise.com/blavitys-afro-tech-conference/ Get your personal toolkit and get started.  Take ‘Em to Church! Yaaaasssss!! Because Building Hardware that Supplies Clean Power Through Kinetic Energy Isn’t Enough “Tell your people where you’re going, and tell them how hard it is to get there. This way you know if they are all in.” Sequoia Blodgett is the Associate Technology Editor for Black Enterprise, Silicon Valley. She is also the founder of 7AM, a lifestyle, media platform, focused on personal development, guided by informed, pop culture. Team Blavity realized that the crowd might be suffering from the “itis” after lunch and decided it was time to take appropriate measures. Warren Jones of Toasted Life and JeShaune Jackson lead the audience in a gif-worthy, Swag Surf extravaganza, as everybody rocked back and forth to the beat of the Fast Life Yungstaz, “Swag Surfin’.” “Anytime someone doesn’t believe, give them repeatable, irrefutable examples until they get it.” There was no lack of entertainment throughout the conference. With a taco-filled mixer the first night and happy hour the second, coupled by drinks coined, #blacktwitter, the crowd stayed lit the entire time. And did we mention the after party, thrown by Toasted Life, and all its excellence? Origin was at fire code capacity, as Just Blaze and special guests Coco and Breezy, kept the party going all night long.Can’t wait until next year. We know it’s going to be bigger and better. Coming up on the tail end of, “Life After A Milli,” Cheryl Contee realized that there were no women represented on the $1 Million+ fundraising panel. During the Q&A, instead of asking a question, she decided to invite herself up on stage to discuss her experiences… and what’s even more surprising is… the Blavity team let her. Instead of ushering her off, they gave her the floor to express her perspective, as she made room for herself on the armrest of Rodney Williams’ chair. She spoke about her recent acquisition from Facebook and why it was difficult, but doable, being a double minority, raising funds.Rodney Williams, Frederick Hutson, Porter Braswell, Jason Towns Image: Black Enterprise/Sequoia Blodgett She Did That. Cheryl Contee Took the Stage with a Vengeance Immediately before the conference got underway, we were asked to cross the room and meet our neighbors. This was great because oftentimes in the black community, we are reluctant to talk to each other, as we hold on to one part insecurity and one part judgment, which feels like a wall on par with the Great Wall of China. But this action immediately opened the room up to conversation, transparency, and vulnerability.    Image: Blavity What is All. Of. This?!? I wasn’t ready, but he most certainly was. Jason, Designer-In-Residence at Accel Partners, hit the stage, in typical West Coast fashion to Kendrick Lamar as the crowd chanted, “We Gone Be Alright”, and he didn’t stop there. There are too many tweetables to name but my favorite was, “Get up out ya’ feelins,” as his grandma used to say. “If you feel discouraged, if you feel like you’re not able to do something, quit that, and understand that it’s worth it to try versus sitting back and wishing that you did.” There was so much knowledge left on the stage that midway through the conversation, he had to take a #DrakeBreak because that’s just what you do.Jason Mayden – Image: Blavity/Andre Pennycooke The host, Mandela Schumacher-Hodge, was not stingy when it came to sharing the tweetables. In case you decided to drift off or check up on your Instagram likes during any of the panel presentations, Schumacher-Hodge readily recapped each of the panel presentations with onsite Cliffs Notes for your online usage. Yes, New Friends When Pinterest CEO Ben Silbermann sat down, the first thing that came out of his mouth was, “I think there should be more black entrepreneurs,” and I agree. Diversity has been a hot topic in Silicon Valley, but harping on it was not his focus. Instead, he provided actionable steps on how to become that entrepreneur that he, so excitedly, believes in.“Do it or stop talking about it.” Jason Mayden Dropped Gems Like Stocks after Trump Was Elected Coco & Breezy Image: Toasted Life/Victor Bashorunlast_img read more

first_imgNext week on #ContenderSeries #DWTNCS pic.twitter.com/1SHVnLDi07— Angela Hill (@AngieOverkill) July 19, 2017 In this Storystream More From Hopefully so. Congrats. Standard BJJ Gi Sale Apparel Esther Lin/MMAFighting.com So Tuesday on his Believe You Me podcast, Bisping responded to Romero’s videos and callouts, saying Romero has “gone off the deep end” and needs to “man up” and accept his loss.“It’s awesome. I love it. I love it. He’s going around getting people dancing on British flags, he’s burning pictures of me, he’s stepping off the plane, he’s doing videos when he gets off the plane, he’s got loads of Cubans all standing there saluting and talking s**t and chanting, he’s in cars talking s**t – he’s gone off the deep end,” Bisping said.“Yoel is out of his god d**n mind. I’ve got to say, I love it because unlike some of those videos, it’s awesome. . . Yoel, get over it bud. You just lost the No. 1 contender fight. It’s as simple as that. And you know what, it’s just so typical of Yoel Romero. He can’t man up. He can’t accept it. He’s gotta cheat. He’s got no honor. He’s gotta take steroids.”Bisping has repeated accused Romero of being a steroid user. Romero never failed a drug testing during his Olympic wrestling career, but did fail a USADA drug test, a failure which was later ruled to be caused by a tainted supplement. Bisping continued his response, saying that Romero lost because he didn’t have the heart to win that he needed to “get a f**king grip” and stop calling for a fight with the champion after losing.“Listen, I was in No. 1 contender match ups – and let’s not kid ourselves, an interim title fight is a No. 1 contender matchup. That’s all it is because there was no need for a f**king interim title fight, but whatever. The UFC wanted to do one so I said sure, do it, it’ll pump up the fight and make it even bigger when it does happen. But he lost! He lost fair and square. As I said, he laid on the floor, he gave up like a little b**ch that he is because he didn’t have the heart and he let the fight slip away and he lost that fight. But still he can’t accept it. Now he’s still trying to bypass the victory and call me out still.“I’ve lost No. 1 contender match ups. If I’d have won them, I’d have fought for the title. But what did I do? Did I go to Instagram and call out the champion still and this and that? No, I didn’t. You know what you do? You accept it like a man. Whatever it is in life, it doesn’t go your way, you weren’t successful, you couldn’t pull it off, you didn’t achieve it – you say f**k it, back to the drawing board. I’ll get them next time. You don’t go to Instagram and campaign for a fight with the champion anyway. You just lost. Hang your head in shame. Disappear to Cuba. Spend some time with your f**king family and come back and build yourself back up. That’s what you should be doing not dancing around on the Union Jack. Get a f**king grip.”Bisping famously failed in both of his UFC middleweight title eliminator fights before winning the title as a short notice replacement when Chris Weidman pulled out of his rematch with Luke Rockhold at UFC 199.As for what’s next for Bisping, he says it definitely won’t be a fight with Romero. Bisping says there was some talk of he and Whittaker coaching opposite one another on The Ultimate Fighter but those plans were scrapped and now he’s waiting to find out who is next. Whittaker sustained some fashion of a knee injury during his fight with Romero so if Whittaker is on the shelf recovering, Bisping says the previously planned and then scrapped fight with former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre could be back on.“Robert Whittaker will be my next fight unless the unimaginable happens and GSP comes up.” MUST-READ STORIESResults.

My only gripe with it is this: Thanh Le put on a great performance that he finished with a head kick KO and still didn’t get offered a UFC contract. I mean, if having a highlight reel knockout isn’t gonna get you the call up, what is? I felt that they could have justifiably signed 5-6 guys last week and 3 of them this week. Just not really sure what the criteria is if exciting finishes aren’t gonna get you a shot in the game.Also, I highly recommend everyone with access go watch the Real Sports from HBO last night discussing Ramzan Kadyrov and featuring one of the best journalists in the MMA business, Karim Zidan.

Video: Aalon Cruz scores ridiculous jumping knee KO on Contender Series Ranked: Greatest Women’s Soccer Players Stadium Talk Morning Report: UFC and MMA News, Multimedia and Hot Clicks Latest From Our Partnerscenter_img Recommended by It’s no secret that there’s no love lost between Yoel Romero and UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping. But at UFC 213, while Romero was facing Robert Whittaker for the UFC interim middleweight title, Bisping sat cageside. As the cameras cut to him, Bisping ripped up the Cuban flag and tossed it at Romero. It was a bit of heelish escalation that would have played perfectly in promos for their eventual title clash; except, Romero lost a decision to Whittaker, withdrawing himself from title contention.Don’t tell that to Romero though. Recently, Romero has been adamantly calling out Bisping with videos posted to his Instagram, burning the Union Jack and calling for Bisping to come meet him in Cuba for disrespecting his flag. On Monday, he posted a video of himself in Cuba, calling for a fight with Bisping, asking Dana to give him the fight, and at various points, standing on or having Cuban fans stomp on the Union Jack.

Watch Holloway, Cyborg Do Work Via Ghost Cam Timeline of Israel Adesanya’s Rapid Rise to UFC Contender Bellator 198: “Fedor vs. Mir” took place at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill., this past weekend (Sat., April 28, 2018), featuring a main event that saw Fedor Emelianenko finish Frank Mir in 48 seconds to advance to the second round of the Heavyweight Grand Prix tournament, where he gets a chance to do the same to Chael Sonnen. Sonnen Explains Awkward Face Off With Fedor (and Snow White) MMAmania.com Initial ratings data for the Paramount Network-televised broadcast indicated that Bellator 198 averaged 581,000 viewers. In addition, Saturday night’s Nielsen ratings score the program at a 0.22 rating, which was good for 31st on the night among all of cable television.The simulcast on CMT averaged 169,000 viewers. Stiff competition from Top Rank on ESPN (701,000 viewers, 0.20 rating) and PBC on FOX (839,000 viewers, 0.2 rating) may have divided the combat sports audience that night, and it’s also playoff season for both the NBA and NHL. The early numbers are an increase in viewership from Bellator 197: “Chandler vs. Girtz,” which did 242,000 viewers.Once additional data came in from DVR +3 and the West coast replay the numbers rose greatly. The “Fedor vs. Mir” main event drew 1.5 million viewers, peaking at 11:26 p.m. ET. The overall average for the show combining all sources turned out to be 838,000 viewers.The live gate for ticket sales was also the second biggest in Bellator history, so aside from the peak number for the main event, it’s also a homerun in revenue for the promotion.To check out the latest Bellator MMA-related news and notes be sure to hit up our comprehensive news archive right here.

Dillashaw. Will MMA look a lot different on ESPN? Is the UFC being on the network a game changer? How do Cejudo and Dillashaw shake up — and should this fight be at 125? Can we guarantee Dillashaw makes weight?We’ll also discuss Jon Jones vs. Anthony Smith, which was set last week as the UFC 235 main event.

Protesters Confront Betsy DeVos at the Harvard Kennedy School

Posted on by

first_img By Spencer Buell· Photo via APProtesters, some standing with their fists in the air and waving signs that included the words “white supremacist,” swarmed to greet Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos Thursday night at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.DeVos, despised by advocates for public schools and victims of on-campus sexual assault, was there to give a talk about her pro-“school choice” views on education.As she has done since her appointment to the position by the Trump administration, DeVos in her speech argued for the promotion of alternatives to public schools, advocating for policies that would give parents the option to send their kids to privately-run charter schools, diverting funding from public schools pay for it.“I came into office with a core belief: it is the inalienable right and responsibility of parents to choose the learning environment that best meets their child’s unique, individual needs,” she said, according to prepared remarks provided by the Department of the Education. “Now, I’ve been called the ‘school choice Secretary’ by some,” she continued, “I think it’s meant as an insult, but I wear it as a badge of honor!”During the speech, video taken at the event shows a pair of students standing up silently in their chairs and unfurling a pair of signs. One read “white supremacist” in all-caps. The other read “Our students are not 4 sale.” Dozens more students stood silently in the hall, also brandishing signs.WATCH: Protesters at Harvard University interrupt speech by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. https://t.co/PiMPcFnR5u— NBC News (@NBCNews) September 28, 2017 9/29/2017, 11:15 a.m. 000 Get a compelling long read and must-have lifestyle tips in your inbox every Sunday morning — great with coffee!

She did not address that decision in her speech, although she did address it in response to a question from the audience. “[C]ampus sexual assault is not an issue that we’re going to be sweeping under the rug—I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, one sexual assault is one too many,” according to the Crimson.Her visit came the same day that a Cambridge librarian penned a strongly worded letter, which has since gone viral, explaining her decision not to accept books donated by First Lady Melania Trump. The letter called out Betsy DeVos by name, saying “underfunded and underprivileged communities … continue to be marginalized and maligned by policies put in place by” DeVos.

Tour Confidential Woodland wins Rory fades and a kinder gentler US Open

Posted on by

first_imgCheck in every Sunday night for the unfiltered opinions of our writers and editors as they break down the hottest topics in the sport, and join the conversation by tweeting us @golf_com. This week we discuss all things Gary Woodland and the U.S. Open.Gary Woodland refused to let major-hoarder Brooks Koepka chase him down Sunday at Pebble Beach, carding a two-under 69 to win the U.S. Open by three. What did you learn about Woodland and his game that you didn’t know a week ago?Sean Zak, associate editor (@sean_zak): We learned that he steps on the gas now. It’s been shared on this site numerous times, but when holding the 36-hole lead at Bellerive, Woodland played a layup iron off the first tee Saturday, comfortably sitting in neutral. Brooks Koepka, from the same group, smashed driver to 60 yards from the pin, flipped a wedge and made birdie, eliminating Woodland’s lead. Today, Woodland played aggressively when the result was in question — think about that macho 3-wood into 14, or any of his vicious hacks from the rough. It kept him one step ahead of Koepka all day long.Jeff Ritter, digital development editor (@jeff_ritter): I certainly wasn’t sure if Woodland was ready to close a major after sleeping on the 54-hole lead. That ain’t easy! I think a more common path for a first-time major-winner is to slip in through the back door on Sunday, but Woodland protected his lead even as Koepka came charging at him. Woodland managed his game beautifully, but he also hit some tough, clutch shots — none bigger than that pitch off the putting surface on 17 to save a key par.Jess Marksbury, multimedia editor (@jess_marksbury): Totally agree, Jeff! If that expertly-executed pitch on 17 wasn’t proof that Woodland has major game, I don’t know what is. That was such a huge moment and he handled it beautifully. The guy never faltered. He was super-impressive, and never flinched, especially down the stretch — much like his so-called doppelgänger, Brooks.Josh Sens, contributing writer: Woodland himself talked about his refined new short game. We didn’t know he had that new element in his arsenal. As well as he struck it this week, it was his play around the greens that ultimately made the difference.Alan Shipnuck, senior writer (@AlanShipnuck): So much heart. Brooks has created a Tiger-like aura but even with his monster charge at the start of the round Woodland refused to crack. He’s always had all the tools but now he has belief and know-how (and a better short-game), so look out.Michael Bamberger, senior writer: So much heart, II. On the course, in the press conference, at the Phoenix Open. Just a man and a golfer, not a brand and a showman. Loved what he did and how he did it and how he explained it.John Wood, PGA Tour caddie for Matt Kuchar: Gary is tough as they come. We play a lot of practice rounds with him and the one thing I think he shares with Koepka is playing without emotion. He doesn’t seem to get too high or too low, or let anything in to bother him. He hits it, finds it, and hits it again. And like everyone above said, the improved short game and confidence from this week puts him on a new level.Gary Woodland is a major champion for the first time. Getty ImagesBesides Brooks Koepka, the two most accomplished players lurking after 54 holes were Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy. Rose, who started the day one off the lead and, in the final group, shot three over. McIlroy, who started five back, shot one over. Whose day was more disappointing?Zak: Rory, because Rose didn’t really have his A-game all week. He was scrapping it around and draining putts. Rory made enough birdies in his first 13 holes that would have tied him with Woodland for the lead late on the back nine. It’s a tough standard to hold anyone to (bogey-free play), but Rory quickly played himself out of having a shot. That made it all slightly less fun.Ritter: Rose was more disappointing because he still had a shot to win with about seven holes left, but he couldn’t come up with a single shot when he needed it. Three bogeys and no birdies on the back nine from a previous U.S. Open champ and world No. 1? Surprising.Marksbury: I never really felt like Rory had a fighting chance on Sunday, so his round was kind of in my periphery from the beginning. I was totally shocked by the way Rose crumbled, though. After that opening birdie I really thought he would be the man to beat, but 74 is never going to get it done on a major Sunday.Sens: Expectations were higher for Rory coming into the week. But if we’re talking about Sunday only, Rose’s showing was the bigger disappointment. As scruffy as he game was tee to green, he still had the tournament within his grasp well into the final round. His oil-leak down the stretch wasn’t a complete shock to watch, given that he was mostly holding his day together with gossamer and a putter, but it had to be seriously deflating for him.Shipnuck: Rose ran out of miracles — he couldn’t keep one-putting forever. How about Rory blowing himself out of it with a ghastly double-bogey on the second hole? He made another double on 16. The guy’s game can be so maddening.Bamberger: Well, Rose, because he’s in the last group, he’s seeing what the leader is doing and his job is to play better than him. But he was never going to beat Woodland.Tiger Woods closed with a hot back nine to shoot two under for the week and tie for 24th, but he also made some concerning remarks about his past injuries and how achy he feels when he plays in the cold. What did you make of Woods’ campaign at Pebble, and what, if anything, might it mean for his chances at Portrush?Zak: Tiger’s play was largely uninspiring after Thursday. He made a bunch of pars Friday afternoon where he could have re-entered the conversation via just a couple birdies. He was never in danger of missing the cut, which is good, but if the temperatures at Portrush are anything like Pebble (I think we can expect this), that creaky back of his will not make things easy. He’s just a good golfer in his forties who kinda needs it all to click if he’s going to contend against the greatest fields.Ritter: It’s too early to write Tiger off at Portrush just because it’ll be sweater weather, but I think Sean’s right about how things need to line up perfectly for him to contend there. Tiger has proven he can still win big events, but his days of winning anything with his B- or C-game are long gone.Marksbury: Struggling in the cold is a sobering reality for Tiger. It certainly doesn’t inspire confidence for Portrush, but the course is still such an unknown for many in the field that I will continue to hold out hope for a run at No. 16.Sens: I expected a better showing from Tiger this week, what with his glossy track record at Pebble. But in retrospect, I don’t think the week revealed much that we didn’t know already. Tiger can still win, but the stars have to align just so. He’s not getting any younger, but the fields keep getting deeper. He doesn’t have the benefit of playing in Hogan’s era. He’s got more than a small handful of guys to beat.Shipnuck: Can we take a moment to celebrate Tiger’s grit? He looked miserable out there yet roared home with six birdies to salvage his week. That’s a lesson for us all.Bamberger: The king of grit. The best grinder ever, or since Hogan. But that wasn’t a hot back nine. That was just Tiger playing as he plays.last_img read more

SCOTT Moore has described James Roby as a phenomen

Posted on by

first_imgSCOTT Moore has described James Roby as a phenomenon following the hooker’s amazing start to the Engage Super League season.Speaking ahead of this Friday’s trip to Crusaders, the 23-year-old believes the 2007 Man of Steel can only get better.“Robes has always been a freak and if you look at his stats he is killing it this season,” Moore explained. “He is part of a pack that has begun to show real good go forward. Jammer is playing well as is Josh Perry too.“But Roby is killing it and I’d like to know what his secret is – he is a phenomenon.“Although I’ll miss this week’s game with a calf injury I am enjoying the season so far. Of course all players want to be in the starting 13 but whatever job I am given I want to do my best. And if you’re winning and picking up trophies then there aren’t any problems.“We have hit a little groove at the moment which is long overdue as we expected to start a lot stronger.“We have to take it week by week now and continue to climb the ladder. We are a hardworking and honest team; we are all friends and we want to play well for each other.”Scott broke on to the scene as a 16-year-old against Wigan in 2004 and his career has taken in spells on loan at Castleford and Huddersfield.“Those periods away made me a better player,” he continued. “It was a steep learning curve because I had got so used to winning in 2006 and then I had to get used to losing again.“Castleford had just come up and so had strung a team together and it was a struggle. But I learnt a lot from Terry Matterson and it set me up for the very successful year at Huddersfield.“I’m learning from Royce Simmons too. He is a good witty bloke and isn’t one for barking orders. He has subtle quiet words with you and it is a happy camp.“I have had to learn how to play with James Roby too which was weird at first. But we’ve found some cohesion and are getting better all the time. Playing just two positions is better for my game too.”last_img read more
