As summer comes to an end and Football season quickly approaches, I wanted to share my first football related video post. Earlier this summer, I worked alongside Malka Media as the Director of Photography for this promo video for the Get Liive Football Camp. Tennessee Titan’s LB, Collin McCarthy and S.A.S. Sports Training sponsored this event in which NFL players such as, Philadelphia Eagle’s WR, Riley Cooper and Atlanta Falcon’s K Matt Bosher train and interact with children whom are passionate about football. Press play and enjoy!
Kendrick Lamar’s star is burning brighter than it has at any point during the 25-year-old rapper’s career. Lamar’s performance was, for lack of a better word, epic. “K-Dot, K-dot, K-dot!!!” the crowd shouted in anticipation before he took the stage. The room exploded when Kendrick came out, the energy overwhelming as fans got their first glimpse of the rapper. K-Dot gave his fans exactly what they wanted, a slew of old school hits from earlier projects with a mix of freestyles and newer songs and, toward the end, a preview of the new album with hits like “The Recipe” and “Swimming Pools (Drank)”. In the process, he showed us all why he’s the total package as an emcee. (Written By: Jayson Stewart @FiveStarAdam)

On Friday, Imagination Federation, a non-profit organization that works towards the education of children in Chacraseca, Nicaragua hosted their second annual Walk2Nicaragua walkathon. The aim was to collectively walk 1080 miles—the distance between Miami and Chacraseca. While the main location for the event was at the Miami Dade College Kendall, others took the initiative to gather and walk for the cause as well. 25 students from Mast Academy walked the Rickenbacker causeway, 100 citizens of Chacraseca, Nicaragua completed a total of 755 kilometers (469 miles) around the small community, and 12 fellows of the NHLI 2012 Executive Leadership Program held in California gathered in San Juan Bautista and walked 16 miles. Over 400 Participants at Miami Dade College finished 1,080 miles 12 hours after the start of the event. Although the distance goal was not only reached, but also exceeded, their second goal is still in progress. With about a month left of the campaign, Imagination Federation has raised 4,500 dollars out of their 10,000-dollar goal.
