Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, April 12, 2017 – Providenciales – A vicious racial rant by guests of Seven Stars Resort earlier today has islanders outraged. A couple who believed their cell phone was stolen by Mango Reef staff called the restaurant and riddled off the most demeaning language, exposing their extreme prejudice against black people.From repeated use of ‘the ‘N’ word’ to threats about cutting a worker’s throat to comments about sexuality and commands for the ‘group of n****s to go back to Africa where they came from’ it was a poisonous mix of shocking racial slurs.Employees were upset, they recorded the tirade and one staffer told the woman accuser, who was the most vocal that the TCI is not used to her brand in its guests. The photo and audio of the couple is spreading on social media.The pair also sounds as if they are intoxicated on the recording. The cell phone was found by Mango Reef enclosed in a menu. It was said to have been discovered when staff was setting up for dinner. The cell phone was returned to the couple.#MagneticMediaNews#racismatmangoreef Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#magneticmedianews, #racismatmangoreef

Twitter Email GRAMMY winner’s latest ‘Footnotes’ video tackles male vulnerability with Michael B. Jordan, Chris Rock and Meek MillRenée FabianGRAMMYs Aug 15, 2017 – 11:26 am GRAMMY.comJay Z’s latest album, 4:44, is the gift that keeps on giving. Not only is the album itself a work of art, but the GRAMMY-winning rapper has been releasing star-studded music videos along with a “Footnotes” documentary series that captures black men talking candidly about complex and often sensitive themes. Jay Z Gets Vulnerable On Latest ‘4:44’ Footnotes News Facebook Jay Z Talks Therapy, Vulnerability jay-z-gets-vulnerable-latest-444-footnotes Last week Jay Z dropped the music video for the track “MaNyfaCedGod,” which features Lupita Nyong’o. Now, in the new accompanying “Footnotes” clip, Jay Z, Chris Rock, Michael Che, Trevor Noah, and Meek Mill open up about emotional vulnerability and the stigma men face when seeking therapy.”We can’t go to get therapists. You crazy at that point. It’s like, ‘A psychiatrist? You crazy’,” he said. “Three of your brothers are dead and your mother used to beat you. You need help. Someone needs to talk you through why you’re feeling these feelings.”Previous “Footnotes” installments have covered topics such as racism and relationships and have featured stars such as Kendrick Lamar, Aziz Ansari and Will Smith. Directed by writer/comedian Neal Brennan, the underlying purpose of the series is to destigmatize complex topics and invite a freeing discussion, especially for men.”I think Jay went to therapy and it seems like he realized we’re all hiding something and none of our secrets are any worse than anybody else’s secrets,” said Brennan. “We all pretty much have the same types of secrets, same types of emotional disabilities and it’s worth talking about. It’s freeing for the person who does it … and it’s also freeing for people that watch it or listen to it.”Jay Z’s New Album: Hear The Samples No ID Cued Up On 4:44
Xinhua News Agency/Getty Images With a few minutes to go before Telsa’s quarterly earnings call ended, Elon Musk surprised investors with news that chief financial officer Deepak Ahuja will be leaving the company, Reuters reports.He will be replaced by Zach Kirkhorn, Tesla’s current vice president of finance. The news caused stocks to drop by as much as 5.9 percent in late trading, even as the earnings call promised lower prices of its Model 3 sedan and a new Model Y version.It’s not the first time in recent months the electric car maker has seen high profile departures. Last September saw both chief accounting officer Dave Morton and head of human resources Gabrielle Toledano leaving to similar effect on Wall Street, with shares tanking by as much as 10 percent then.All is not doom and gloom. The company did say that it’s possible it will post a profit in the first quarter of this year. 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Car Industry,Enlarge ImageIt’s all in a day’s work for the Jeep Cherokee, the most American-made car in 2019. Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. Cars.com has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise you.Cars.com analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned business.Cars.com surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker. Tags 2019 GMC Canyon: A fancier Colorado Honda PassportThe Honda Passport is a new (well, reborn) entry to both the Honda lineup and the American Made Index. This midsize crossover comes to the fray with great driving dynamics and plenty of tech like the standard Honda Sensing suite of active safety features. An available 8-inch touchscreen gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.Under the hood is the stalwart 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. However unlike the Ridgeline, the Passport sends that power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, just like the Ridgeline, this is the only powertrain available. The Honda Passport is built in Lincoln, Alabama. GMC CanyonIf you’re looking for a slightly fancier version of the Colorado that’s more focused on luxe than dirt, check out the GMC Canyon. The top Denali trim gets standard heated and ventilated front seats as well as a heated steering wheel. Maximum payload capability is 1,665 pounds while max towing is a fairly healthy 7,600 pounds.The Canyon is available with the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, 3.6-liter V6 or 2.8-liter diesel as the Chevrolet Colorado. It’s also built in Wentzville, Missouri. 52 Photos General Motors Chevrolet Honda Jeep Acura Post a comment 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous Tags 2019 GMC Sierra Denali review: So close to greatness Share your voice Acura MDXMoving up one slot to sixth place on the American Made Index is the non-hybrid variant of the Acura MDX. With its SH-AWD system, the MDX is one of the better handling midsize luxury crossovers, and for 2019 the company gives us the A-Spec treatment with a new front fascia and side skirts, 20-inch wheels, wider exhaust tips, unique gauges, a new steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and various Alcantara interior touches.However, both the standard and A-Spec models get a 3.5-liter V6 engine, rated for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque going through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Acura MDX is made in East Liberty, Ohio. Honda PilotDropping down to seventh place for 2019 is the Honda Pilot. Like its two-row Passport sibling, the three-row Pilot offers parent-focused technology like Cabin Talk as well as myriad standard driver-assistance features through the Honda Sensing tech suite. Honda’s largest crossover offers up nearly 84 cubic feet of cargo space. Honda’s 3.5-liter V6 engine shows up again, making a serviceable 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Touring and Elite trims get a nine-speed automatic transmission while lower trims have to make do with a six-speed auto. The Honda Pilot is made in Lincoln, Alabama. 18 Photos Honda OdysseyThe feature-rich Honda Odyssey minivan also retains its number-two slot from last year’s list. While the 2019 model doesn’t see any changes from last, it’s still a darn good choice for families on the go with reconfigurable seats, Wi-Fi and an excellent rear-seat entertainment system. The Cabin Watch video system lets parents keep an eye on their little darlings without turning around in their seats, while Cabin Talk amplifies their voice so no yelling is required.The Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Most trims get a nine-speed automatic but the top Touring and Elite trims now use a 10-speed automatic with stop-start technology. The Honda Odyssey is made in Lincoln, Alabama. 2019 Honda Ridgeline: The commuter’s pickup truck 2019 Jeep Cherokee can handle the rough stuff Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive. It’s built in Lincoln, Alabama. 2019 Honda Passport: A well-rounded midsize offering 2019 Honda Ridgeline review: Light duty, heavy punch 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport loves to hustle Jeep CherokeeKeeping its top-of-the-list placement, the Jeep Cherokee is 2019’s most American-made car. Refreshed for 2019, the compact crossover now features more tech, better cargo space and a slightly tweaked look. It’s available in no fewer the nine trims, including the off-road specific Trailhawk and a fancy-pants Trailhawk Elite.For 2019, the Cherokee gets a new 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, though naturally aspirated I4 and V6 choices are also available. Regardless of engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission gets the power to the pavement — or dirt as the case may be. The Cherokee is made in Belvidere, Illinois.

While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance. The Corvette is made in Bowling Green, Kentucky. 69 Photos Chevrolet ColoradoMaking its debut in the top 10 is the Chevrolet Colorado. Shown here in the tough ZR2 Bison off-road spec, the Chevy Colorado is an excellent truck and one of the two midsize pickups you can get with a diesel engine. Adding to the ZR2’s two-inch lift and front and rear locking differentials, the Bison gets beefier skid plates (trust me, that’s a good thing), steel bumpers and integrated recovery points. Heck, you can even get a snorkel.Base models get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission, but a more popular choice is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter diesel pumps out 186 horsepower and a delicious 369 pound-feet of twist and is mated to a six-speed automatic. The Chevy Colorado is built in Wentzville, Missouri. 68 Photos 2019 Acura MDX adds new features and an A-Spec model 2019 Honda Pilot Elite: A smoother, tech-rich crossover SUV Acura RDXThe third-generation Acura RDX squeaks into the top ten list with larger proportions, plenty of interior space and better handling than its predecessor. Forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control that works even in low-speed traffic, lane-keeping steering assist and road departure mitigation are all standard across the board. Like its MDX counterpart, the RDX is available with the A-Spec styling package.The RDX sports a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Output is stated at 273 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and it’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The international people’s tribunal in Kuala Lumpur has declared that the Myanmar government is responsible for the recent genocide against the Rohingya and other ethnic minority Muslims.A seven-member panel of judges of the Permanent People’s Tribunal announced the verdict on Friday, indicting the state of Myanmar for war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide.“The tribunal ruled that Myanmar is guilty of genocide against the people of Kachin and Muslim groups there,” said head judge Daniel Feierstein, who founded the Centre for Genocide Studies in Argentina, reading out the findings. The tribunal held the hearing for five days at the Universiti Malaya Legal Faculty moot court.The judges unanimously announced, “On the strength of the evidence presented, the Tribunal reached the consensus ruling that the State of Myanmar has the intent to commit genocide against the Kachin people and the other Muslim groups.”“Moreover, that genocide against the Rohingya is now taking place with ongoing acts of genocide and the possibility the casualties of that genocide could be even higher in the future if nothing is done to stop it.”Over the past week, the tribunal heard and considered ‘documentary and expert evidence as well as the testimony of some 200 victims of the atrocities committed against the Rohingya, Kachin and other minority groups in Myanmar’, reports The Star online.Of the 17 recommendations, announced afterwards by judge Gill H Boehringer, one was that the Myanmar government must cease the acts of violence against the Muslim minorities there.“Visas and free access must be granted to the United Nation’s Fact Finding to probe the atrocities committed against the Rohingya, Kachin and other groups in Myanmar,” he said.He added the Myanmar government must also amend its constitution and abolish discriminatory laws to give rights and citizenship to the oppressed minorities.He said that the international community must provide financial help to countries such as Bangladesh and Malaysia that are hosting the influx of refugees escaping the violence.More than 400,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled Myanmar’s Rakhine and taken shelter in Bangladesh following the crackdown on 25 August.He added that the tribunal’s findings, judgement and recommendations would be forwarded to international bodies and civil groups to pressure the Myanmar government to act accordingly.Other members are: Zulaiha Ismail (Malaysia), Helen Jarvis (Cambodia-Australia), Gill H Boehringer (Australia), Nursyahbani Katjasungkana (Indonesia), Shadi Sadr (Iran) and Nello Rossi (Italy).The Permanent People’s Tribunal was established in the line with Russel Tribunal II for Latin American dictatorship (1974-1976) in 1979 at Bologna, Italy. Since its journey, the PPT has held 43 sessions notably on the human rights violations that committed by the state actors.

A crowd of workers and activists will be in Washington, D.C., April 29, to protest the annual convention of the National Restaurant Association (NRA) at 5 p.m., in front of the Ronald Reagan International Convention Center located at 1300 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W.The purpose of the protest, organized by the Baltimore Workers Assembly, is to keep up the pressure for an increase in the minimum wage to $15 dollars and hour, and to expose the NRA’s role in trying to prevent any increase. The protest will take place while the NRA is holding an awards banquet.The National Restaurant Association’s conference this year is devoted to lobbying and strategizing against any efforts to raise restaurant workers or any other low-paid workers.The NRA is the principle organizer and financer of the anti-minimum wage increase battle both in Washington DC and in state capitals. Sharon Black, leader of the Baltimore “We Deserve Better” Workers Assembly, said, “The restaurant industry executives that dominate the RNA have assumed more responsibility than just about anyone else for waging a war against low-paid workers — and they should not be able to meet in peace…” Ms. Black continued, “We think that the reason The NRA is meeting in the Ronald Reagan International Convention Center, a federal building, is because they’re so hated they felt that their conference needed the extra protection that they’ll get from the government because of the venue.” The Rev. Grayland Hagler will also participate in the protest, along with members of the Restaurants Opportunity Center, United Workers of D.C., and Occupy D.C.The Baltimore Workers Assembly is a newly formed low-wage workers and activists’ alliance working to win a $15 minimum wage and a union in the Baltimore, Washington D.C. area.
Attempts to convert cord cutters to skinny bundle subscribers won’t pay off for the industry, Convergence predicted. “With ARPU half the traditional TV average, lackluster margins, programming gaps and technical issues, live multichannel OTT provides little counter to category killers Netflix & Amazon that sell at lower price points and essentially without advertising,” the report outlined. “We believe a number of OTT plays, including large and niche, will fail due to insufficient subscriber traction, cost, and competition.”Altogether, online video services are poised to bring in $22 billion in 2019, up from $16.3 billion in 2018, according to the report. Last year, that revenue already grew by 37%. However, even with this growth, traditional pay TV is still expected bring in more than 3 times as much money per household, and more than 4 times as much across the entire industry, as much as over-the-top video. CREDIT: Convergence Research (data) / Variety (chart) OTT revenue estimate based on the top 66 OTT services.There is a silver lining for the Comcast’s and AT&T’s of this world: The continued growth of video services also drives further broadband adoption, with internet access revenue growing 7% to $61.6 billion in 2018, and similar growth expected for this year. “As the majority of TV access providers are also internet providers there are benefits to facilitating the rise of OTT,” the Convergence concluded. “Residential broadband subs first surpassed TV subs in 2017.” ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
