Philly rapper Freeway has invested in a product close to his roots, literally.
The 36-year-old rapper has debuted his contribution to manscaping with the release of his All Natural Best Beard cream.
Packaged in silver tins, the handcrafted creams come in an assortment of scents, from sweet blueberry to the limited-edition holiday spice that smells like nutmeg.
As of late, men have been saying so long to the chin strap, the goatee, and the soul patch as more have been growing full-on thick beards of glory.
Donning a “Beards R Us” T-shirt as he peruses the apparel in Status Shop on South Street, Freeway has been a source of beard-spiration since he exploded onto the hip-hop scene in the early 2000s.
“I’ve always been known throughout the music industry for my beard,” said Freeway, 36.
From school children to night fishermen, solar lighting in Kenya is transforming the lives of thousands of people. As the sun sets over developing countries, more than a billion people are either plunged into darkness or forced to rely on polluting light sources such as kerosene.
While clean energy alternatives exist, switching to them has been slow and in Kenya, more than 80 percent of the country’s 40 million inhabitants rely on kerosene, candles and torches as their main source of light.
But the development of an all-in-one solar electricity system that powers lights, radios and phones is revolutionising thousands of households and businesses.
Robin Forestier-Walker travels to Kenya’s Rift Valley to see how innovative financing, distribution and product design is heralding a new era in solar lighting.

Coca-Cola’s sales may suffer.

Turkish businesses have started removing Coca-Cola from shelves, more than a hundred Mumbai hotels are not selling any of its products, and Malaysian pro-Palestinian groups are calling for a boycott in response to the continued Israeli attacks on Gaza, which have killed more than 700 people.
The well-organized “Boycott Israel” movement has been around for many years, and generally ebbs and flows with the intensity of Israeli-Palestinian conflict, part of the larger “BDS” (for boycott, divestment & sanctions) campaign started in 2005. The huge civilian death toll in Gaza, which has been documented by quickly-circulated photographs, and the unrelenting nature of Israel’s missile attacks could make this boycott particularly tough on Coca-Cola, judging from growing support from social media:
Happiness is not a goal, its a by product of a life well lived.
La felicidad no es una meta, es un subproducto de una vida bien vivida.
Geluk is geen doel, het is een bijproduct van een goed leven.
Le bonheur n’est pas un but, c’est un sous-produit d’une vie bien vécue.
Glück ist nicht ein Ziel, es ist ein Nebenprodukt der ein Leben gut gelebt.
Xìngfú bùshì mùbiāo, tā shì yīgè yóu yīgè liánghǎo de shēnghuó chǎnpǐn.
Lycka är inte ett mål, det är en produkt av ett gott liv.
Schast’ye eto ne tsel’ , yego pobochnyy produkt normal’noy zhizni.
Mutluluk iyi yaşamış bir yaşam ürünü ile onun bir, bir hedef değildir.
La felicità non è un obiettivo, è un sottoprodotto di una vita ben vissuta.
Kebahagiaan bukanlah tujuan, seorang yang menurut produk dari kehidupan yang dijalani dengan baik.
