Mercedes Benz Armor Protection for Black Men #hiphop

leave a comment »

When I say protect ya neck, I mean it. Here’s the specs on the Mercedes Benz armored vehicle. This car will protect you from 9 MM and .44 Magnums. This will keep Plaxico and others safe. Do it now. Don’t go to jail. I’m serious.

Mercedes Benz Armored Vehicle E-guard

Mercedes Benz Armored Vehicle E-guard

“A brother of the Mercedes-Benz S Guard, the E Guard class represents itself as very safe, reliable and luxurious armored car which comes fully armored from a production line. The B4 protection level protects passengers from hand guns such as 9mm gun, 0.357 Magnum, 0.44 Magnum with speeds up to 440 m/s.

Production of the model series W 211 started in the year 2002 and continues until today (2007). The E Guard models use 4 types of engine; the E320 and E500 (both of which were released in 2002*), E350 (2005*) and E320 CDI (2006*). Unlike the S 600 Guard class with B6/B7 armoring protection and speed electronically limited to 210 km/h, the E class’ weight is 2580 kgs (see the table below for more details) which makes it possible to reach a maximum speed of 240 km/h which is also electronically limited.

Due to it’s armor weight, the Mercedes-Benz E Guard cars use the Anti-Dive system which prevents the vehicle suspension from deflecting. Such deflects are caused by braking, when the front wheels and wheelbase get put under enormous pressure. Naturally, similar forces develop on the rear wheels and wheelbase during the acceleration process which is why the Anti-Squat system is also used there. Anti-Squat is simply the same system as Anti-Dive, but designed for the rear.”

Why would Lamar Odom marry Khloe Kardashian?

leave a comment »

I mean, what’s the appeal? Ok. She’s relatively unknown other than a reality show. Why would a Los Angeles Lakers World Champion marry someone like Khloe Kardashian? I watched this show this past week and saw singer Omarion pleading with this lady and wanting to shift from being friends for seven years into a relationship. This dude actually seemed hurt that she didn’t want to be more than friends. I asked myself, “Why would someone be that into Khloe Kardashian?”

I then see the news yesterday that NBA Los Angeles Laker and World Champion Lamar Odom has proposed to this chick and they are getting married this upcoming Sunday. I was appalled and could not figure out why. It’s not like Lamar Odom needs hype and needs notoriety the way Omarion does. Omarion’s career is in the dumps. He needed Khloe Kardashian to lift him out of obscurity and make his career pop off again. But Lamar Odom? What does he need Khloe for? I came to the conclusion that he must love her.

They’ve known each other for a month according to reports. Why would you make $10,000,000 per year and marry Khloe Kardashian? What is the appeal? Does Lamar Odom think she has money so therefore she won’t mess up his money when they divorce next year? But wait a minute. Her dad, Robert Kardashian, was a great lawyer who worked on the O.J. Simpson case. I think, had she not been pregnant, Lamar Odom would have been better off marrying this hottie, Kourtney Kardashian.

If Lamar Odom wanted a Kardashian and not go after Reggie Bush’s ex Kim Kardashian, his best pick would have been Kourtney —>>>>. Kourtney is crazy hot and Kim is kind of average. Not that looks are everything but this whole union smells of something more than love to begin with. Just like when Omarion was pushing up like crazy. On TV it seemed as though he was sincere but then it looked much more contrived than anything because he was pushing so hard to get her.

Making Athletes Make Money

leave a comment »

Everyone hears about athletes and their super sized contracts. The reality is that athletes more than ever need to focus on earning money off the field, court, or baseball diamond in order to secure their future. This is what we refer to as passive income. Playing sports is considered earned income. This means that you only get paid to play ball.

On top of that, if you get injured, in most cases, you will not get paid. In professional football, you get paid based upon incentives and meeting certain measured accomplishments on the field. If you don’t meet certain on the field goals, you don’t get paid. Athletes and their representatives need to always focus on off the court or off the field money. But how?

Bill Duffy, owner of BDA Sports in Walnut Creek, California, is one of the premiere sports agencies in the NBA. The company has a sports marketing division of their agency that helps athletes earn passive income and get endorsement deals and make other money. BDA does more than just focus on endorsements. They focus on the athletes image to the community and build personal brand awareness of the athlete to consumers and the public.

BDA Sports has an impressive roster of talent that includes the NBA’s best athletes such as Steve Nash, Rajon Rondo, Yao Ming, Greg Oden and others.

Boston Celtics and Rajon Rondo Disagree on Contract Terms

leave a comment »

It seems the Boston Celtics and Rajon Rondo cannot come to terms on Rajon’s contract extension. Rajon Rondo and his agent, Bill Duffy of BDA Sports, want $11-$12 Million per year for 5 years and they believe that Rajon is one of the top 5 point guards in the NBA. The Boston Celtics disagree and have offered Rajon a deal worth $9 Million per year for 5 years.

This is typical. Professional sports teams constantly want players to perform at the top of their game but when it comes to contract negotiations, team management tends to not consider you the best in order to save contract money.

How To Be A Successful Minority Business

leave a comment »

Innovation is the foundation of getting paid. No matter what industry that you are in, you need to be innovative in order to stand out from a crowd. When many people are trying to do the exact same thing, the only thing that will make someone stand out in a crowded market is your ability to think innovatively and do something totally different.

[picapp src=”8/b/a/d/Secretary_Ridge_Signs_00a0.jpg?adImageId=6634921&imageId=3201423″ width=”380″ height=”265″ /]

All markets are crowded in today’s world. The music industry is crowded with artists who sound alike and who attempt to do the same thing that was successful for the next artist. Teams in The National Football League will see teams get success with a certain type of quarterback, an offense like The Wildcat, or a new defensive scheme, and try to duplicate it exactly to get the same success.

In order to be the one who stands out, you must be the one who creates and innovates the space. If you constantly strive for innovation, you will naturally be a leader. People follow real leaders. People pay great leaders for great work and great leadership. Become the leader and you will undoubtedly have the success that you seek.

Innovation is not only found in technology but most of it is. You can also be innovative with an approach or a strategy to be this leader. This requires new thinking and testing new strategies. Don’t be afraid to branch out and test new stuff and present your ideas to investors. You never know what will become an industry standard.

The Mis-Education of Cash Money

leave a comment »

The bible and my mother used to say “Money is the root of all evil.” To a certain degree, I believe this because greed and the pursuit of cash money has gotten so many young black brothas and sistahs thrown directly in jail.

[picapp src=”3/d/3/1/5_Million_Dollars_1a96.jpg?adImageId=6629060&imageId=4288061″ width=”380″ height=”242″ /]

Money itself, if used properly, is a great thing. Money can change your life and make life much better and easier. Money attached to good people is great and a great goal to have. Pursuing cash money itself, can get you locked up. I speak to many people in jail in my prisoner outreach program that say that were locked up for pursuing some sort of cash money.

This allowed me to start seeing why my mother used to say that “money is the root of all evil.” I would like to change this and say that greed is the root of all evil. Money is good. Greed is bad and will kill you and all of your dreams. Black people want material items so bad that often times we will do anything to get a watch, a car, some shoes, and some clothes.

This wanting is what leads us on a path of un-righteousness. The images of this cash money done by rappers also leads us directly on this path thinking that because these rappers flaunt it that we now need it just as bad to show that we are powerful just like the rappers are perceived.

Pursuing cash money and walking around with a wad of $100 bills is bad. This is not a good thing. Investing your money is a good thing. Waving hundreds in the air is not what you want to pursue no matter how flashy it looks and feels. The more you wave hundreds in the air, the more people want to take you off the planet and put you in a casket or jail.

The Young Black Guide To Winning

leave a comment »

Believe it or not, African Americans used to be champions of the world in mathematics. We were so on top of math that we mastered it, built pyramids, and the Greeks would come to Egypt to learn from our masters. When slavery rolled around, people knew that the first thing to take away from people is math and reading if you truly want to conquer them and destroy the mind.

[picapp src=”3/b/0/0/USC_v_UCLA_e74b.jpg?adImageId=6625848&imageId=3856771″ width=”380″ height=”564″ /]

If you want unbridled success, you must harness mathematics and must master Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry, and Calculus. You must welcome business statistics class and both macro and microeconomics courses. Of course it’s not cool to take any of these classes but what we are dealing with is not who looks the coolest but who comes out on top in the end financially.

If you are 14-25, I need you to focus on school. I don’t care what you don’t have or what you have. Every one is equal when it comes to education. The person who will be able to take care of themselves, have their own home and multiple homes is the person who masters certain components of education.

If you have other dreams of music, sports, theatre, film or whatever, that’s cool too. Focus on mathematics and focus on those other creative aspects of your life as well. Mathematics and business will be the subjects, however, that takes you into the future and builds you into a successful entrepreneur or businessperson.
