Africa, Community, and Empire: Ryan Coogler and Michael B Jordan Looking to Bring The Story of Mansa Musa to Life @balleralert Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan Looking to Bring The Story of Mansa Musa to Life-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ With the success of their first three projects: “Fruitvale Station,” “Creed” and “Black Panther”, super Director Ryan Coogler and Hollywood Star Michael B. Jordan are already teaming up for more projects. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ According to multiple reports, the duo is now looking to start a project centered around the life of Mansa Musa. Both Coogler and Jordan feel it is important to create influential films that reflect the Black community and the contributions that have been made throughout history. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “You got to tell stories in today, or in the future,” says Jordan. “Or can we go back even further? There’s always one period that people want to go back to, but can we go back to Hannibal? Or Mansa Musa, destroying economies as he traveled? Can we go back to the Egyptians?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Mansa Musa was an influential African ruler in the fourteenth century. He was emperor of the Mali Empire, a land filled with gold, which he casually handed out during his religious expedition to Mecca, ultimately causing economic crises to cities that were unfamiliar with such wealth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In 1324, Musa became the first Muslim ruler to trek almost four-thousand-miles. During his travels, he encountered rulers of the Middle East and Europe, which helped to put Mali on European maps. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ He helped improve Islamic education and he also brought back government bureaucrats and architects. With the development of mosques and a major university, the city of Timbuktu became more urbanized. Musa ruled for 25 years and during that time, Western Africa was said to be at peace. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ While there is no word on when this project will take off, the duo is already in pre-production for another film titled “Wrong Answer,” about a 2006 standardized testing scandal in Atlanta. The sequel to “Creed” is also on the way.

Family, Memes, and New Year's: While we're out celebrating with our loved ones this CNY, this Navy officer is not with his family but out at sea, protecting us back home Chew Chun Cheong 57 mins. Lunar New Year Eve, 15 Feb 2018 Yesterday as our fellow Chinese Singaporeans prepared and enjoyed their reunion meals with their loved ones, members of the #vanguards donned our uniforms, bade our families farewell to sail out for Singapore Straits. Though it is a familiar routine for our crew to ensure Singapore maritime security #247 , there is a tinge of disappointment in everyone's hearts as we had to miss reunion meals with our families on Lunar New Year Eve. Looking back 76 years ago on this day, Singapore fell to the Japanese after the British surrendered. Coincidental or not, it was the first day of Lunar New Year in 1942. This struck us and reminded us that we can depend on nobody but ourselves to defend our Nation, our Home. Yes, we missed our reunion dinner on the eve this year, and our loved ones will need to count down to初一without us. But we know it is a small price to pay for the peace that we enjoy today. We are proud to be able to contribute and make this little sacrifice for the peace and security of our Nation. To all services personnel who continue to protect our Everyday during the festive period, Happy Lunar New Year! Bravo Zulu! THANK YOU FOR YOUR SACRIFICE! Well said! While we’re enjoying this festive season with our loved ones, let’s remember and appreciate the ones defending us, making all this possible 🙂🇸🇬 sp

 Yesterday as our fellow Chinese Singaporeans prepared and enjoyed
 their reunion meals with their loved ones, members of the #vanguards
 donned our uniforms, bade our families farewell to sail out for Singapore
 Straits. Though it is a familiar routine for our crew to ensure Singapore
 maritime security #247 , there is a tinge of disappointment in everyone's
 hearts as we had to miss reunion meals with our families on Lunar New
 Year Eve.
 Looking back 76 years ago on this day, Singapore fell to the Japanese
 after the British surrendered. Coincidental or not, it was the first day of
 Lunar New Year in 1942. This struck us and reminded us that we can

 Yes, we missed our reunion dinner on the eve this year, and our loved
 ones will need to count down to初一without us. But we know it is a small

Anaconda, Bailey Jay, and Billboard: Remembering Legendary Singer and lcon, Whitney Houston @balleralert Remembering Legendary Singer and Icon, Whitney Houston - blogged by @lanaladonna (swipe) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s been six years since the death of legendary singer, actress, producer, and model, WhitneyHouston. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Houston died at 48 in 2012 after being found unconscious in a bathtub in a Beverly Hills hotel. It was reported that the singer passed due to cocaine use and heart disease. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Houston’s legacy included winning six Grammys and selling 170 million albums, singles, and videos over her career. Whitney, to this day, is the only artist to chart seven consecutive No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 songs and is the only woman to have two number-one Billboard 200 album awards. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Houston made her acting debut in “The Bodyguard” in 1992, where she performed the lead single from the film’s soundtrack, ‘I Will Always Love You.’ The song easily became a highlight of Houston’s career, and one of her signature records. It received the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1994. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Houston’s pursuit in acting didn’t stop there. Aside from her appearance in Disney’s ‘Cinderella,’ she landed leading roles in ‘Waiting to Exhale’ and ‘The Preacher’s Wife.’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Whitney’s career contributed to breaking the color barrier that so many African-American artists faced. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On this day we remember her legacy, career, angelic voice, and the contributions she made to the entertainment industry as we know it. Houston left behind her mother, two brothers, and her daughter Bobbi Kristina, who died three years later. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ May Whitney Houston continue to Rest In Peace!

Family, Friends, and Google: ALLI WANT IS PEACE OF MIND. Peace of mimd? What is it? Is a state of mental and emotional calmness, with no worries, fears or stress. In this state, the mind is quiet, and you experience a sense of happiness and freedom. (Google definition) Now, how can you bring more peace of mind into your life? You might also ask, whether it is possible to turn it into a habit, and enjoy it always and under all circumstances. Actually, there are a few things you can do to enjoy more peace in your life, and in time, you might gain the ability to experience it quite often. ✔️Minimize the time you spend on reading newspapers or watching the news on TV. Since most of the news are negative news, and you cannot do anything about them, why should you think about them and feel stressed and anxious? ✔️Stay away from negative conversations and from negative people. You don't want their thoughts and words to sink into your subconscious mind and affect your moods and state of mind. ✔️Don't hold grudges. Learn to forget and forgive. ✔️Don't be jealous of other people. Jealousy means that you have low self-esteem, and therefore, consider yourself inferior to other people. ✔️Learn to be more patient and tolerant with family, friends, co-workers, employees, and everyone else. - Inner peace eventually, leads to external peace. By creating peace in your inner world, in your mind, you bring it into your external world, and into other people's lives. And of course… IF you didn’t know, now you know 😉 - peace mind peaceful millionairementor
