Beyonce World #Formation Tour

Screen Shot 2016-02-08 at 9.09.53 PM.png

Beyonce did it again by dropping a single and video day before the most talked about performance in Santa Clara, Ca at Levi stadium for Super Bowl 50 and announced Formation World Tour along with a mission to help Flint Michigan. I’m not tooting her horn but when one needs to be sounded toot toot! The single Formation is such a undeniable powerful song and Beyonce used the perfect platform to let the world know she wasn’t playing.  2014 was the last time the Formation singer dropped new music and well she did not disappoint.

Look at the video below and tell me what you think about the track.

California School system guided by the ignorant

The Kindergarten Readiness Act, or Senate Bill 1381, moves that minimum age cutoff for admittance into kindergarten to Nov. 1 for the 2012-13 school year. The age cutoff will shift again in the 2013-2014 school year, mandating that children must turn 5 by Oct. 1 to enroll in traditional kindergarten. For the 2014-2015 school year, a child must turn 5 before Sept. 1 to enroll in traditional kindergarten.

Teacher happy they have less responsiblity to teach

This is the most dumb change made in the history of changes.  To cut budget they are messing with the future of our children.  Entering my children into the school system in the state of California has been a difficult challenge.  In the state of Florida I had ALL four of my children in school.  My one year old in a daycare that had actual structure for teaching them basic counting and language, my three year in preschool, my four year old in pre-k, my six year old in Kindergarten.  Coming to California I am told my three year does not qualify for preschool something about a cut off of November 17th, her birthday is 3 days later and hell there is no pre-k for my four year old. They found him space in preschool that is clearly where my 3 year old should be.  My kindergartner went from school all day where she had physical education, art, music, library, computer skills lab, breakfast and lunch in the cafeteria to California 3 hours a day morning or evening classroom and no other classes to offer her in the short amount of time.

These teachers say children with November birthdays struggle the most or not ready because they can’t sit down.  Correction you are lazy in your efforts to teach these children and your attention span can’t go beyond 3 hours.  Children are behind in California not because of their age but the lack of real teachers and classroom hours.  How can you expect a child to learn in three hours, with the first hour lost on getting settled into the classroom.  Where are the variety of classes that they will have entering first grade.  They are expected to attend class all day in first grade when they have only attended 3 hours in kindergarten.  Kindergarten is suppose to be a child right of passage into real school instead here specifically in the Fremont school district of California it is just overflow preschool.  Lunch time for the children are optional, I mean it is play or eat literally.  How could a transitional program be new when duh kids would have ALWAYS needed to be transitioned into kindergarten.

I am tired of budget cuts for education.  Cut the budget where it is needed not where more money should be.

”You have a high number of kids who haven’t attended any kind of preschool experience,” Kaup said. “This drastically affects how well kids do.” THIS IS BECAUSE YOU WON’T LET THEM IN PRESCHOOL! LET THEM IN AND THEY WILL HAVE THE EXPERIENCE DUH DOESN’T TAKE A ROCKET SCIENTIST.

I use to be on the side of teachers and not cutting budgets there but maybe if some gave a damn about teaching the students and not oh your birthday is one day late so your brain can’t possibly grasp letter A they would see better results.  A child growth and development is not only the responsibility of the parent but a reflection of the teacher as well.  Can anyone tell me if a group of parents complain about a teacher lack of teaching and responsiveness to the students to the district and yet that teacher remains employed, how can your child succeed?  How can they move past the horrible kindergarten experience and excel in first grade and beyond. Somewhere the blame has to stop falling on our children and the parents and put it where it really belongs on the instructors who lack their duties.  Teach a child and they will thrive at their own past.  Some may need that extra help and that is what special education use to be for now we just keep delaying our children to enter into school relying on the parents to teach them.

I am not a teacher but I believe in education and do not play or except failure from my kids.  It is one of the areas I am hardest on them.  I don’t baby talk them so they can pick up language early.  I have school of mom time with them so they can learn.  Are there any other parents out there upset with their school system and seek change.  The way they are moving is not the right move and parents need to take a stand.  Take an active roll and stand up for your child right to learn and be properly educated by those who have taken on the roll of teacher.

Rihanna Remix Pour it up VS Beyonce Single Bow Down

Rihanna is on FIRE!

Now with that said we seen Rhianna go from good girl to bad girl transition and it worked for her.  Do you think Bey late in the industry turn to bad girl will work for her?  I don’t know but hearing the two snippets, single, crap whatever you want to call it Bow Down makes me wonder where her sound and image is going next.  I would love to see Beyonce pull something new off.  Maybe she finally got the message that we would like to see more than her rolling around on the stage half naked and calling it a performance.  There is no surprise anymore, no fire when she comes to the stage.

Island Def Jam has released Rihanna Remix Pour It Up Yong Jeezy, Rick Ross, T.I., and Juicy J.  I want to know what do you the consumer think of the Rihanna Remix Pour it Up VS Beyonce Bow Down/ I Been On. 

Which track do like best?  Rihanna Pour it Up was just fine to me in fact that is the jam, that song go hard right now. “Bands make your girl go down” WHAT! Yes Rihanna is on FIRE and has been for quite some time now.  It took a little getting use to with the change but overall it worked out in her best interest.

Bey wants to do new music, she doesn’t want to sing the same type of songs all her life.  Much respect to that just make sure there is some content in what you are delivering.

Beyonce Bow Down/ I Been On or Rihanna Remix Pour it Up or the original version of the song.  At the end of the day both of these females still got they money and pockets deep.  Can’t take that away from neither one.  Just want to hear from you are you welcoming Beyonce to the other side or will her stans fall back and wait to see if it catches on before fully supporting her new sound.

Queen Bey all eyes on you!

SuperBowl 47

So the 49ers did not win!

The history of the 49ers has been changed, they are the first team in the history of Superbowls as a NINER to loose.  I must admit them Ravens came to play.  The 49ers started the first half like they was not playing at the bowl.  It took the awkward power outage to wake the boys up.  I don’t know what they was tripping on, but I seen rookie mistakes being made that was suppose to be checked at the door.  The face mask tackle, missed tackles, and not tackling dude with the live ball.  Hell everybody know when the ball is touched by opposing team on a kick off and dropped, then picked back up the ball is live.  They hesitated as if they was in a practice drill or blinded with dumbness.  Don’t get it twisted I am a 49er fan and wanted them to win.

I will say this though them boy came back and played.  We all knew it was going to be a good game and it was not disappointing.  Yeah Yeah Lewis got his parting gift.  Hmm but nothing like when the bus got his parting gift the Ravens actually played ball out there.  It took us a long time to get to this point and the next time I know damn well we better play to win from the beginning to the end.

I loved seeing the sea of red and support from 49er nation!  How about them commercials tho?  They were the best commercials ever this year.  To bad I can’t say the same thing about that wack ass halftime show.  The retirement home taco bell commercial was FIRE!!.  There was three older people sitting next to me in the chilis bar and they all started yelling YEAH thats right we party too, so I had to give them around of applause which they appreciated and joined in.  Gotta love geriatrics!

Now the halftime show, what the hell was that?  Why did she look so unpolished and evil.  Her makeup was not done to perfection and the high black socks with low cut boots is not the look.  Should have just worn them damn hooker boots and called it a day.  She obviously hasn’t figured out that people expect more of her than just rolling on the floor half naked.  I personally thought she was going to bring it.  Is it possible that Beyonce is trying to move from performer to singer.  Huh? you confused folks ask.  Beyonce has never been much of a singer but one hell of a performer.  At one point she use to do more than bite people styles and bring it on that stage.  If she did not have the graphics and pyrotechnics behind her the show would have ranked a 1 out of 10 instead of 3 out of 10.  When Kelly popped up on that stage her energy was amazing and she looked amazing. Hate to say it Sike! Beyonce is officially overpaid throwing out under performances.  Didn’t Pepsi pay her like 50 million?  I only seen the “4” in Pepsi cans and a drink.  There should have been way more publicity of Pepsi.  Her PR team had the same one damn picture of her fake pushing the basket full of Pepsi.  Yeah she would have needed to do several commercials, be seen walking with a can of Pepsi with her covered up baby.  Please tell me that there is commercials and all that press happening that she could not rehearse for the inauguration of the President and yep Superbowl.  Seems like she was not prepared for that either.  Maybe she had one of them personal situations that will be revealed later in some documentary.  Who knows lets hope the diva figures it out soon before she falls from grace.  I see it happening folks, or do we expect to much from her, I mean she is only human.

Looking forward to next year Superbowl and who will be in 2014 NY/NJ Superbowl 48.

Congrats to the Ravens you brought one hell of a game, Niners need to go hard and make up for changing our history of the NINERS never loosing a bowl game.  It had to happen at some point and that point was Superbowl 47.

Pssst who thinks Beyonce light show caused the power outage?  I’m just sayin!

Kimye PREGNANT!

CONGRATS TO KANYE WEST AND KIM KARDASHIAN!

It is always a joy to find out when someone is expecting.  So many changes to the family, preparation and overall joy.

Kanye West has recently shared the news on Sunday at his concert that he and Kim k are expecting their first child together.  E! News has confirmed that Kimye are expecting and Kim K is about 12 weeks pregnant.  Congratulations on making through your first trimester and may you have a healthy pregnancy.

Kim Kardashian has been waiting for the right price to come along and start a family with.  We or those of us who watch Keeping up with the Kardashians have seen Kim K hopelessly fall in love and desperately wanting to start a family.  I don’t know them personally but you kind of feel a part of the journey through the highly successful reality series.  Khole Odom has described her older sister as a hopeless romantic and finally I think she as hit the jack pot.

Kris Humpheries are you going to let her go now?  This dude has gotten what he came into the marriage for.  Now all of a sudden people are into his life of who is dating, who he has knocked up, and his “career”.  Is the divorce being dragged out for a reason on both parties?  Kim K let him go and move on to enjoy what you have waited on for a lifetime.

Who is wondering when the two will get hitched?  Has the divorced been settled secretly and Kim and Kanye can truly move on with their lives?  Questions unanswered but we do know Kanye was FINALLY the one that gave Kim Kardashian what she has been seeking.  Enjoy the beginning of your new family.  Whew beware of the wrath of Kanye if anybody had said something before Kim K was pregnant, now whew caution of the tongue lashing that will be coming your way of wifey, baby mama Kim.

Congrats so happy for the two of you.  Now the cameras are going to be on overdrive to get that perfect baby bump picture.  Who will be the first endorsement for Kim K and the baby bump.  You know some damn maternity line is going to hit her up if not already for her to be the spokesperson.  Wait doesn’t Vera Wang have a maternity line?   Do you think Kim Kardashian will be sporting the Vera Wang maternity line?  If so don’t forget who said it first your girl daqueetbreal. Holla at me.

An added Hero! Kaitlin Roig

First Grade Teacher who saved her classThank You Kaitlin Roig

First Grade Teacher who saved her class
Thank You Kaitlin Roig

Kaitling Roig is a first grade teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary.  Kaitlin managed to save her class by burricadding them in a small bathroom.  She comforted the children during the gunfire.  She said she doesn’t know if it is ok for a teacher to cross the boundaries in telling them she loved them.  Kaitlin in this case you did the RIGHT thing.  I agree with her not wanting the gunfire to be the last thing the children heard but someone telling them that they were loved.

Hearing her and seeing her so emotional just brings tears to my eyes.  For the first time I struggle with writing as my emotions are running rapid.  I applaud you Kaitlin and send hugs to you and your family from afar.

Even the survivors of the children and adults need our prayers.  This is something these children and teachers, school staff will have to deal with.  The lives lost, the children and people saved. You did not cross a boundary you were being the children advocate.  At that moment you were being the teacher so many of us parents wish we had in the classroom.  Teacher forget or often have to push their emotion to the side because your class is only your class for the year and you are not suppose to show emotion.

KAITLIN ROIG I SALUTE YOU AND THAT LOVE IS WHAT THOSE CHILDREN NEEDED

Stop Ignorance!

Stop the ignorance!

We need to take a stand and stop being ignorant.  Stop giving people a chance to call you ignorant or view you as an ignorant person.  As a nation we need to stand together and fight the parallels of the older generations or people with misguided information.

African Americans, blacks however you want to label yourself stop giving people the opportunity to call you ignorant.  It was bought to my attention the other day that most videos posted are of black on black fights.  Why wonder why people are viewing our race or young generation as nothing more than ignorant fools that are killing each other off anyway.  They no longer need to vastly spread racism and kill us off because our own people are doing it for them.  Does a heated argument really have to turn into murder?  Do you need to be in the street fighting?  Better yet the person with the camera do you really need to put your people on blast like that.  That shit not cute, excuse my french.

Stop ignorance, make a stand today to fight against it.  Stay in school, go back to school, start school.  Stop fighting in the streets and videotaping it! Stop giving people a reason to call you ignorant and dumb.  Prove to the people you are intelligent, you have a purpose, prove you have just as much of a right to be here as anybody else.  Arm yourself with the right tools of success instead of a gun.  Teach our youth street life is not the life.  Stand up, rise up, make a statement.  I am not ignorant and I too deserve to be here.  I am just as if not more educated than you.  Drive the people crazy with the STOP IGNORANCE MOVEMENT!
