The ‘Illinois’ Dreadhead Cowboy Arrested in Chicago After Protesting ALL KIDS LIVES MATTER

CHICAGO- Adam Hollingsworth, 33, rode the Dan Ryan Expressway to bring awareness to the slaying of our children, heading southbound from about 35th Street, where he slowed down traffic with the Illinois State Police and Chicago Police close behind asking him and the gang to exit but they refused, eventually exiting at 95th where he was taken into custody around 4:30 PM by police, as reported by WGN News.

They’re calling for the mayor and governor to fund mental health, education, social programs and new development in neighborhoods that have been neglected, and are being gentrified.

“The thing is to send a message that our children are dying, That there are no resources coming to our communities.”

Activist Mark Carter

According to journalist Vashon, Dreadhead Cowboy lead his horse Nunu 7.5 miles down the expressway before being arrested. Ironically his horse is named after one of the children shot and killed this summer, Vernado “NuNu” Jones Jr., whom we are still seeking justice for. He’s facing three (3) charges: reckless conduct, disobeying a police officer and criminal trespass.

State police said another man, Darron Luster, 55, attempted to gain control of the horse after Hollingsworth was arrested. Luster was charged with obstructing and resisting arrest.

NuNu had multiple injuries from the trip. He was allegedly “bleeding from the left hoof, its right hoof was injured and the right side of the horse’s body had sores from the saddle.” Chicago Animal Control was called to the scene and took the animal to their facility for further care.

Adam is no stranger of being an honorable active citizen in the hood or neighborhoods across Chicago. He’s always stood loud ringing the alarm so the deaf can open their mind to the rate of how our children are being taken away from us. ALL CHILDREN life does matter; the killings of children in Chicago, the kidnapping , and human trafficking of our children must be front and center so it can be stopped.

“Earlier this summer, Mayor Lightfoot dubbed Hollingsworth “The Census Cowboy” in an effort to bring awareness around filing out the census (WGN).”

@DangeRussWilson & @ciara gives scholarship fund to their partner’s @1Future children

Allegedly Russell Wilson gifted the mothers of Future’s children each 10K College Funds for the shorties. The Wilson’s are always giving. This will help the children bond as a blended family providing them all with the same opportunity in life. This is a great form of charity to humanity because it’s a investment in making them good citizens of life. Scholarships are grants to learn for free purposes of course to create a union to produce great fruit(s).

The joining of marriage partners no matter if they’re independently wealthy, such as Ciara and Russell, establishes a estate and trust that provides a wealth of information and resources to learn how to help make humanity better; while having a rich life.

The Wilson Family

Some people are purely understanding of how truly great this is, and some feel like Future should snub him when in reality they should all just be grateful as a unit they are able to provide that level of lifestyle choices to their children as a collective. This should breed out jealousy between siblings with different fathers and status. This can help blend the multiple relationships and personalities of the situation.

Scholarship is a revenue donation to access other social commerce services, hence why tuition is a revenue and you can receive a credit for continuing education. Human Resources are very important for us to live life , as living beings we help bridge the gap with all life forms.

Even though all humans don’t go the virtuous cycle of life, it’s good to have the children introduced to a good life so that they can make choices. How they make their choices and what they do with the resources is not on you, because they will receive their fruits, good and bad.

When You Have Heroes as Friends: @SaintTheGoodBoy & Jesse James Saves the Day

Friday, September 7, 2018 King James (Jesse Stringer) and Saint “The Good Boy” (Lennell Davis) was looking for a party during after hours when they approached 79th Phillips and seen a building on fire.

I was told by a source that The Chicago Fire Department was on location and did not immediately respond to the fire. That’s what sparked both guys to go into the building on a rescue mission. Source reported that Jesse asked the Fire Fighters what were they waiting on to go into the building and one of the Fire Fighters responded by allegedly telling him to “go ahead and go in”.

I received a call from Saint shortly after they finished the rescue. For more information on the story, click link here, to get CBS2 Chicago’s account. They awkwardly produced their story deliberately stating that the The Chicago Fire Department’s Fire Fighters immediately responded, when I was told by a source, who was present, that they did not.

Nonetheless, it’s great to know that I have great friends/humans around who will sacrifice to ensure the well being of others. They could have kept riding and assumed that because the Chicago Fire Department was present they would take care of it. This is a good example of leadership and being an active citizen.

Mapping Global Media and Contra-Flow: Discussion

What is the global media landscape? How has it evolved over the past decades? What role has UNESCO played in the shaping of the global media landscape?

The global media landscape is the digital technology and aesthetics of the flow of media. It has evolved over the last decade by allowing the global and contra-flow of media to flow in different directions (export and import). This allows those who didn’t have access to other nations or target audience to expand their base or reach a larger audience. The UNESCO role, which is the mediator, has shaped the global media landscape. It helps to report information to the key players involved providing them with education for a better understanding of culture scientifically. I think that this allows all parties involved to make better decisions when it comes to the trading of communication and media commodities.

Who are the major media players (companies and countries)? What is meant by ‘subaltern’ contra-flows? Are these anti-hegemonic or pro-American? Why?

The major media players in terms of countries is United States, Europe, and Asia. The major media company players are CNN (US), ESPN (US),  Disney (US), Discovery (US), Hollywood (US), Google (US), BBC (Europe), CNBC (US), Wall Street Journal (US), Japanese Animation (Japan), etc.( Thussu, 12).

What is meant by “subaltern Contra-flows”, is an sub-alternate flow that flows culture from one place to another by a constituent from another region (Thussu,11-13) . For example, there are two  types of Contra-Flows: Transnational and Geo Cultural  (Thussu,12) . Transnational is a subaltern flow that consist of multi-vocal, multimedia, and multi-directional flows (Thussu,11-13).

According to the text, Thussu states that global media traffic isn’t just one way, even with the US at core. I think that this shows that the subaltern flows is anti-hegemonic even though they may be hybridized (Thussu,18-21). The goals of these subaltern flows is to create a flow that counters the dominant flows, giving the world audience a different perspective of culture and creativity (Thussu, 10-13).

Getting my Shit 💩 Together 😊 😂

Since the semester has ended, I’ve been 🐝 crunching my brain 🧠 on how I am going to use my new equipped skills ✍🏾 and knowledge 📚 to manifest my goals 🍯 but then I realized after a phone 📲 call with a friend, I was already doing it and just needed to slow down.

I’ve been moving so fast that I’m not taking the time to be good to myself realizing what I’m creating on a daily basis. So, I’ve decided to focus my attention on where I insert and incept.

I’ll be journaling my summer chronicles while preparing myself for my final expected year of my Bachelor’s degree.

I guess what you can call me is a starving artist 👩🏾‍🎨 , not willing to sell 💴 my soul or compromise my vision for lesser quality.

I appreciate you for flowing with me and I look 👀 forward to us growing together.

Urban Culture and Affairs: Let’s Set a New Direction of Flow

What is Flow and Contra-Flow?

Subject: What is flow and contra-flow? What is meant by ethno-mediascape?

Flow is how communication and media networks attempt to hold their audience from one program to another; or even from a segment in the program to the next segment. In summary, how the constituent consumes media across networks or from programs. Contra-flow is the movement of culture brought to another place through an migrant (diaspora)  which moves the flow of media in the opposite direction of just flowing from the west to the rest of the population, making it a two way movement. Ethno-mediascape is a type of global cultural flow, mediascape is communciations media as a whole and ethno is simply ethnics. In summary, ethno-mediascape is ethnic communications media as a whole.

Subject: How does flow and contra-flow contribute to the emerging ethno-mediascape?

Flow and contra-flow contributes to the emerging ethno-mediascape by creating diversity in the market from ethnic cultural groups directly, other than media and communication that is disseminated by outside sources. It allows other cultures to build their own communications commodities that reflect their culture and gives them the power to tell their own story including inform their fellow members who may have relocated nationally. It gives constituents a direct connection which is a major key in relations to how flow and contra-flow contributes to ethno-mediascape. This is also great because it’s great for representational value dealing with other ethic cultural groups.

 Why am I igniting this conversation? 

Well as you know, I’m building my credibility as a Social Scientist and Engineer, so it’s only right that I share my research. I’m currently studying Global Media and Informational Flow with my Professor, Dr. Deborah James, at Governors State University.

My interest in Media Studies is from never seeing an accurate portrayal of my identity and culture. I want to help move Urban Culture forward scientifically and dis-spell all of the misconceptions of who I am in the world. As an Urban Citizen I didn’t get into institutional studies to be socially reformed, I admitted myself to socially reform those who share their perspective of the African Diaspora globally based on their assumptions of who we are.  I think we need to focus on glocal conversations in the dominant aka global media flow.
