Apple Watch review: Beautiful form, frustrating function
I love that the metal band is comfortable and infinitely adjustable, and it goes with everything, casual to dressy. The magnetic But the prompts to stand up and get active aren't as smart as I'd like: for example, I hate when the Watch asks me to ...

In A City Known For Go-Go, Hip-Hop Is Making A Name For Itself
"[Wale] was smart to do it the way he did it, with, 'OK I'm gonna rap over go-go — it's a go-go town, let me do my raps over a go-go beat. Make them listen that way,'" DJ Heat says. "That was definitely the turning point where the city started paying ...

Alcatel OneTouch Watch review: No beginner's luck here
I dig the mostly metal build and the fact that it's water- and dust-resistant up to the IP67 standard, but the rear of the Watch's body is made of chintzy, easily marred black plastic. Hardly a dealbreaker, but it feels cheap and out of place here. It ...

Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge review: Samsung's best phones in years
The gaps between the metal and Gorilla Glass are so fine as to be imperceptible. The sole speaker has been moved to the phone's bottom so you're not blasting tunes straight into your desk. I could go on, but the S6 just feels seamless in a way its ...

For at least two generations, it’s been the dominant form of African-American music in D. C. But hip-hop. During the height of go-go, particularly in the 1980s into the '90s, hip-hop seemed to be exploding everywhere except D. C. Yet there was a small hip-hop community growing in the District during that time. And now, it feels like the city could be headed for a hip-hop boom. Go-Go And Hip-Hop Kokayi — legal name Carl Walker — is a D. C. native and Grammy nominee. His former hip-hop group Opus Akoben was one of a few local rap acts to make it big outside the District in the ‘90s. He’s seen firsthand how much the hip-hop scene has grown. But he grew up admiring go-go acts like Junkyard Band. "When I was growing up, I used to have band practice on the porch, like me and my friends, 'cause we was trying to get into Junkyard," Kokayi says. Junkyard is from our side of town, they from Ward 8, we from Ward 8, they Southside dudes, I wanna be in Junk or play in a go-go band or whatever. So that's always been in the lifeblood of who I am, and the lifeblood of actually any D. C. indigenous person or Maryland or Virginia that's close to our borders, you knew about go-go music. That’s what I hear from DJ Heat, a former DJ at D. C. radio station WPGC. I remember when I was in high school, in mid- to late '90s, and it was a group of us that were all into hip-hop, and.
Our sheriff isn’t like most American sheriffs. You may have seen Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke on one of his numerous appearances on the Fox News Channel lashing out at President Obama. You might recognize him from his appearance before the National Rifle Association proposing the placement of a semi-automatic rifle on our country’s presidential seal. His proclivity for provocation coupled with his distorted view of black America has grown more extreme over the years, earning him numerous appearances on Fox News. It’s clear that Fox News and Sheriff Clarke have developed a symbiotic relationship. Fox needs a black sheriff to give voice to the dog-whistle narratives its anchors dare not vocalize themselves. As easy as it is to be enraged by Sheriff Clarke’s flagrant grandstanding, we should recognize that he isn’t the problem but only a symptom. Both Fox News and Sheriff Clarke realize that one can bypass the complexities and nuances of sensitive topics by simply maintaining the us versus them approach used by right-wing media giant Ann Coulter.
