Get On Up (Story of singer James Brown)


James Brown (Chadwick Boseman) was born in extreme poverty in 1933 South Carolina and survived a life of abandonment, abuse and jail to become one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. He joined a gospel group as a teenager, but the jazz and blues along the “Chitlin’ Circuit” became his springboard to fame. Although his backup musicians came and went, Brown retained the ability to mesmerize audiences with his signature music, moves and sexual energy.

The topic this Wednesday July 30, 2014 is “War on Drugs Fails Public Health”, Says Richard Branson at AIDS 2014

AIDS 2014 Laws that criminalize intravenous drug use and homosexuality were big topics during day two of the 20th International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2014), being held this week in Melbourne, Australia. Discussions focused on ways that such legislation impacts the HIV epidemic.

Specifically, delegates were told that the decriminalization of intravenous drug use worldwide was a key measure for ending global HIV/AIDS, according to an official press release from the conference, which is organized by the International AIDS Society. Speaking via a video link, Sir Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin Group and now a global drug commissioner, said that the war on drugs had failed in terms of public health outcomes.

A Florida judge on Friday overturned the state’s ban on same-sex marriage in a ruling that applies to Miami-Dade County, agreeing with a judge in Monroe county who made a similar ruling last week. Still, no marriage licenses will be issued for gay couples in either county any time soon to allow for appeals.

The ruling by Circuit Judge Sarah Zabel mirrors the decision made earlier by Monroe County Circuit Judge Luis Garcia. Both found the constitutional amendment approved by Florida voters in 2008 discriminates against gay people. They said it violates their right to equal protection under the law guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution’s 14th Amendment.

Movie: Begin Again
Date: Friday July 25, 2014
Showtime: 7:20, Meet in lobby at 7:00
Where: The Classic Gateway Theatre, 1820 E. Sunrise Blvd.

The latest film from writer-director John Carney (ONCE), BEGIN AGAIN is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together. Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his new-found fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City.


Researchers fully ‘delete’ HIV from human cells for the first time

So far, HIV has eluded a cure because it installs its genome into human DNA so insidiously that it’s impossible for our immune system to clear it out. While current treatments are effective, a lifetime of toxic drugs is required to prevent its recurrence. But researchers from Temple University may have figured out a way to permanently excise it using a highly-engineered HIV “editor.”

The topic this Wednesday July 23, 2014 is the Malaysian airlines crash with 100 AIDS activists on board.

On board Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17, there were apparently nearly 100 researchers and advocates traveling to an international conference in Australia dedicated to combating AIDS/HIV,” he said Friday morning. “These were men and women who had dedicated their own lives to saving the lives of others, and they were taken from us in a senseless act of violence.”

“In this world today, we shouldn’t forget that in the midst of conflict and killing, there are people like these — people who are focused on what can be built rather than what can be destroyed, people who are focused on how they can help people that they’ve never met, people who define themselves not by what makes them different from other people but by the humanity that we hold in common,” Obama said. “It’s important for us to lift them up and to affirm their lives. And it’s time for us to heed their example.”
