Official Images of the Nike LeBron 14 “Black Ice” Surface

After official images surfaced of the Nike LeBron 14 and breaking news that the Nike Air Zoom Generation would be making its long awaited return, another colorway of LeBron James’s signature shoe has been revealed. This edition follows its official Christmas on-court debut and the all black edition James wore on Martin Luther King Jr. Day against the Golden State Warriors.

The Nike LeBron 14 “Black Ice” rests atop of a translucent outsole and white midsole with black speckling. As you move toward its upper you’ll find a mid-foot strap with Swoosh branding to provide a lockdown fit for its sock-like entry. Pull tabs can be found on its tongue and heel for easier access while Dynamic Flywire makes its way onto the silhouette’s lacing system.

The Nike LeBron 14 “Black Ice” is expected to launch on January 28 for a retail price of $175 USD at select Nike retailers.

PBS Announces Documentary On Civil Rights Leader John Lewis

PBS Announces First Ever Documentary On John Lewis

PBS has announced a forthcoming documentary on iconic civil rights leader and United States representative John Lewis.

Titled John Lewis – Get in the Way, the documentary will chronicle Lewis’ life from being born as the son of a sharecropper to becoming the civil rights leader he will forever be known as. But what makes Get in the Way truly special is that Lewis serves as the narrator throughout the documentary, recounting stories of his youth and leading the Bloody Sunday march in Selma, Alabama.

“Atlanta and the state of Georgia have played a pivotal role in the civil rights movement,” Teya Ryan, CEO and President of Georgia Public Broadcasting, said in a statement. “Through the years we’ve shared the stories of many of the movement’s greatest heroes with Georgia ties, including Martin Luther King Jr. and Andrew Young. We are thrilled to bring a film that so eloquently captures the legacy of John Lewis to a national audience through PBS.”

Other civil rights activists also make an appearance in the documentary including Andrew Young; C.T. Vivian; Juanita Abernathy; and Bernard Lafayette. Lewis’ congressional colleagues Eleanor Holmes NortonNancy Pelosi; Harry Reid; Emanuel Cleaver; and Amory Houghton are also featured in the film.

The announcement comes at the right time, in which Lewis’ name has been in headlines recently for statements made against President-elect Donald Trump.

“I don’t see this President-elect as a legitimate president. I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton,” Lewis said in an interview with NBC News this past Friday. He also added that he would not be attending Trump’s inauguration on January 20.

Following Lewis’ remarks Trump then took to Twitter to respond to Lewis, saying that the civil rights leader was “all talk, talk, talk – no action or results.” Trump received plenty of backlash for his remarks, considering they were made towards a prominent figure in America’s civil rights movement, during Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend.

John Lewis – Get in the Way will premiere on February 10, 2017, as a part of PBS’ Black History Month programming. Check out a trailer for the documentary below.

Watch Young Thug’s Disastrous Video for “Wyclef Jean”

Today, the record’s music video finally surfaces, and everything goes dreadfully wrong. Directed by Pomp & Clout, the video costed $100,000 USD and the Atlanta rapper hardly showed up, due to a number of reasons including having his Instagram account hacked. An altercation between Thug’s camp and the cops even occured during shooting so the directors opted instead to use B-roll footage for the final video. Watch the results above.

Harvard’s complete photography course is now available for free online

Harvard’s 12-module photography course is now available for free online

If your resolution for 2017 is to take better photographs than your current blurry, badly composed effort, you’ll want to check out this free MOOC from Harvard University.

The school where Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates cut their teeth has uploaded the entirety of its photography course to ALISON – one of the many repositories of online learning courses.

“The most awesome stage”

Last year, Facebook’s VP of Design thought the TNW Conference main stage was the best she’d ever been on.

The course consists of twelve modules that cover the fundamentals of photography – from software tools to composition and light. There’s also a thirteenth module which serves as an assessment of all you know. If you pass this with a score of 80 percent or higher, and you can get yourself a diploma to print and hang on your wall.

Harvard, obviously, isn’t the only prestigious university that’s put its material on the Internet; UCLA, Yale, Princeton have all launched their own efforts. But most of these tend to be geared towards computer science or academics. Therefore, it’s nice to see one with more creative pursuits in mind.
