Jagged Edge Tour Dates
Lets keep it 100
The state of R&B is in really bad shape,most of all the mainstream outlets are now ran by younger people who know very little about true R&B, and don’t really care,this is forcing artist to stop doing what they love,stop writing great songs,stop singing and wanting to be rappers,or at least do rapper like things,
When I post about new music,most of the comments I get are,jd bring back that good shit,instead of all this BS on the radio,
With that being said,All of you that feel this way,all of you that love great music,I ain’t to proud to beg lol,I’m begging you, pls pick up this new JE album,and help us restore the feeling, 10/27
The longest winning streak in Atlanta professional sports history now belongs to… your Atlanta Hawks!
That’s right, not the Atlanta Braves, they won 15 in a row back in 2000.
Not the Atlanta Falcons, well, because they’ve never gone 15-1 or 16-0. They did win 9 in a row back in 1980.
But then finished 12-4.
That’s right, the Atlanta Hawks now have something no other professional team in this city can claim.
They’ve won 16 games in a row.
Let that sink in for a second.
This team is that damn good.
Winning 16 games in a row in any sport is extremely difficult to do. But look at who they’ve beaten! Teams from the mighty Western Conference.
Let’s break it down with a look at the teams and the scores:
Dec 27th | Hawks 90 – Bucks 85 (Bucks are #6 in the Eastern Conf)
Dec 30th | Hawks 109 – Cavaliers 101 (Cavs are #5 in the Eastern Conf)
Jan 2nd | Hawks 98 – Jazz 92 (Jazz are #13 in the Western Conf)
Jan 3rd | Hawks 115 – Trail Blazers 107 (Trail Blazers are #3 in the Western Conf)
Jan 5th | Hawks 107 – Clippers 98 (Clippers are #4 in the Western Conf)
Jan 7th | Hawks 96 – Grizzlies 86 (Grizzlies are #2 in the Western Conf)
Jan 9th | Hawks 106 – Pistons 103 (Pistons are #10 in the Eastern Conf)
Jan 11th | Hawks 120 – Wizards 89 (Wizards are #3 in the Eastern Conf)
Jan 13th | Hawks 105 – 76ers 87 (76ers are #14 in the Eastern Conf)
Jan 14th | Hawks 105 – Celtics 91 (Celtics are #11 in the Eastern Conf)
Jan 16th | Hawks 110 – Raptors 89 (Raptors are #2 in the Eastern Conf)
Jan 17th | Hawks 107 – Bulls 99 (Bulls are #4 in the Eastern Conf)
Jan 19th | Hawks 93 – Pistons 82 (Pistons are #10 in the Eastern Conf)
Jan 21st | Hawks 110 – Pacers 91 (Pacers are #12 in the Eastern Conf)
Jan 23rd | Hawks 103 – Thunder 93 (Thunder are #10 in the Western Conf)
Jan 25th | Hawks 112 – T’Wolves 100 (T’Wolves are #15 in the Western Conf)
So in this last run of 16 consecutive wins, the Hawks have beaten both the second, third and fourth ranked teams in the mighty Western Conference. They’ve also beaten the second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth ranked teams in the Eastern Conference.
This team is playing lights out. Defense is strong and swift. The offense is fast and scores furiously.
Tonight we witnessed the game from courtside and it was a thing of beauty. We did our best to entertain the crowd with our on the court antics during every time out and in between quarters and halves, but during the rest of the game we were watching some amazing basketball up close and personal. We’ve watched like everyone else from up high and on TV, but seeing this team play the way they did from only a few feet away was amazing.
Watching them earn the longest winning streak in Atlanta professional sports history was incredible. Looking up at that sell out crowd on a Sunday night and hearing and seeing them explode every time Korver or Millsap hit a three and at the end of the game when the streak continued… well, that was something none of us will ever forget.
Warren Buffett has lots of advice for investors, and it comes down to this: Get over yourself. Stop thinking that there’s a magical secret formula for making tons of money overnight, and that you can discover it because you’re smarter than any other investor out there. In fact, his suggestions seem to say, when it comes to getting rich, slow and steady wins the race.
The personal finance site GO Banking Rates has reviewed Buffett’s most recent advice and compiled it into a list of tips. You can see the full list here. Meanwhile, here are three items that give some insight into the Oracle of Omaha’s thought process.
1. Put your long-term investments in an index fund tied to the S&P 500.
At least that’s what Buffett says he himself intends to recommend for the money he leaves to his wife, in what GO Banking Rates describes as “a product that’s as old, stodgy, and lucrative as himself.” Buffett’s plan: put 10 percent of the cash in short-term government bonds and 90 percent in a very low-cost S&P 500 index fund. “I believe the trust’s long-term results from this policy will be superior to those attained by most investors–whether pension funds, institutions, or individuals–who employ high-fee managers,” he adds.
He’s most likely right about that. Research seems to support the notion that index funds outperform managed funds (including mutual funds) the vast majority of the time. The logic is simple: Since index funds are “passive,” just a matter of buying all the stocks in a given index such as the S&P 500, there’s much less cost to cover a sophisticated financial planner, and less expense for buying and selling investments in an attempt to gain more return.
But make careful note of the phrase “long-term.” The stock market can crash and then can take many years to catch up to itself again. To reap the return, you must have both the time and the self-discipline to leave your money in the index fund and wait out the down cycle. It’s not right for everyone.
2. Learn to save.
Buffett shared this bit of insight during a television special last year. “I think the biggest mistake is not learning the habits of saving properly early. Because saving is a habit,” he said. Another big mistake, he added, is trying to get rich quick. “It’s pretty easy to get well-to-do slowly. But it’s not easy to get rich quick.”
3. When a stock price falls, buy, don’t sell.
Buffett followed his own advice last year when he lost $2 billion in a matter of days after disappointing earnings reports drove down the prices of some of his biggest investments. But as he told CNBC, investors who jump ship when a stock price goes down deprive themselves of the chance to recover lost funds when the price goes back up.
Buffett has said he likes bear markets, and the more prices drop, the more he likes to buy. But in general, his advice is to buy dependable long-term stocks in companies whose industry and business model you thoroughly understand. “If you told me that the market was going to go down 500 points next week, I would have bought those same businesses and stocks yesterday,” he explained. “I don’t know how to tell what the market’s going to do. I do know how to pick out reasonable businesses to own over a long period of time.”

Coach 1K. How grand.
Mike Krzyzewski earned his 1,000th career win Sunday, making him the first NCAA Division I men’s coach to reach the milestone, when No. 5 Duke surged past St. John’sin the second half for a 77-68 victory at Madison Square Garden.
Tyus Jones scored 22 points and the Blue Devils (17-2) went on an 18-2 run down the stretch to put Coach K in four figures on his first try.
“I’m not sure I’ve ever been a part of a game like that. That’s kind of nuts, huh?” Krzyzewski said. “It just seemed like three different games.”
Jahlil Okafor had 17 points and 10 rebounds, combining with Jones and Quinn Cook (17 points) to fuel the decisive spurt after Duke trailed by 10 with 8:15 remaining.
That’s when the Blue Devils finally began to look like a Krzyzewski-coached team, picking up their defense and hustling to loose balls as he urged them on from one knee in front of the bench. Duke outworked the Red Storm on the glass and held them without a field goal for 6 pivotal minutes.
“It just, boom! It was great,” Krzyzewski said. “It was beautiful, really, to see them fight today and win.”
When the final horn sounded, Blue Devils players engulfed Krzyzewski and he received a bear hug from assistant Jeff Capel. Photographers swarmed the coach on the court, and players were given T-shirts that read “1,000 Wins And Kounting.”
A public address announcement offered congratulations to Krzyzewski, and Duke fans at a packed Garden chanted his name and held aloft “K” signs.
“I’m glad it’s over,” Krzyzewski said in the postgame interview room with family nearby — including two of his three daughters and seven of his nine grandchildren.
“There will be others that win more, but it is kind of neat to be the first one to 1,000,” he added. “I am proud of that, too: It’s not just the number of wins, but the quality of opponents we’ve had.”
Sir’Dominic Pointer had 21 points and 10 rebounds for the feisty Red Storm (13-6), who were looking for a huge win to put on their NCAA tournament resume. They were in position to get it, but got worn down late by Duke and let this one slip away.
“I thought we just missed some easy looks,” St. John’s coach Steve Lavin said. “We came up short today, but I think you can also see the sneak preview of a team that could be very dangerous here if we continue to make progress.”
No. 1,000 came about 500 miles from the cramped and cozy confines of Cameron Indoor Stadium, but Coach K was hardly on unfamiliar soil.
Madison Square Garden, after all, was where he notched victory No. 903 against Michigan State in November 2011, breaking the Division I record previously held by his college coach and mentor, Bob Knight.
“To win the 1,000th here, you need to be a lucky guy. I like my place, Cameron, but this is a magical place,” Krzyzewski said.
The 67-year-old Krzyzewski improved to 1,000-308 in a 40-year coaching career that began in 1975 at his alma mater, Army. He is 927-249 in 35 seasons at Duke, guiding the Blue Devils to four NCAA titles and 11 trips to the Final Four.
“It’s special. But it’s for all the players who have played for him who got these wins. It’s not just us,” Cook said. “That’s why we wanted to come out and get it done.”
The lively crowd of 19,812, mixed with fans of both schools, included about 15-20 former Duke players as well as Carmelo Anthony and Phil Jackson from the New York Knicks; St. John’s greats Chris Mullin, Lou Carnesecca and Felipe Lopez; and Nike boss Phil Knight.
