Chavez vowed to work tirelessly until his term expiresVenezuelan President Hugo Chavez has said he will step down when his current term expires in 2013, following the defeat of his reform proposals.
Last weekend, Venezuelans narrowly rejected the president’s plans to reform the constitution.
They included a proposal to allow him to run for re-election indefinitely.
Mr Chavez has said the country voted no because it was blackmailed by violence threats and on Wednesday said he would try again to push through his reforms.
Venezuelans voted 51% to 49% against the proposals in Sunday’s national referendum.
The result was a blow to Mr Chavez, who had previously secured convincing victories in elections and referendums, including his triumph last December in the presidential poll with 63% of the vote.
In his first public statement that he would step down as planned, Mr Chavez said: “The reforms did not get passed, so I will have to leave power in 2013.
“I will work around the clock; until the very last day I have left here, I will work relentlessly.”

Don Corleon of Corleon Records, Alaine, Pressure and Johnny Wonder were involved in an auto accident yesterday while on their way to Connecticut to continue their US promotion. Luckily none were injured, and we must be thankful for that. Alaine and Pressure had their recent album launch in Brooklyn, New York on Wednesday, December 5th, 2007. Big up to them on spreading their wings and we wish them all the best. Again our Caribbean people doing their thing.

No turning back for Caribbean diva Rihanna…force to reckon with in 50th Annual Grammy Awards

December 8, 2007 at 12:20 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

It is official…the 50th Annual Grammy Awards nominations has been finally announced. Bajan born Rihanna has been nominated in four individual categories in addition to two collaborations, shall we say six nominations then, we certainly will.  Rihanna’s “Umbrella” featuring Jay-Z  from her recent album, ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ has been nominated in the categories, ‘Song of the Year’ and ‘Record of the Year’.  It has also been nominated in ‘Rap/Sung Collaboration’.  

Atypical of her usual sultry singing style yet innovative “Don’t Stop the Music” is nominated in the ‘Dance Recording’ category; also from her recent album.  “Hate that I Love you” featuring Ne-yo has also been nominated in the ‘R & B song’ category and it is also up in the category ‘R & B Performance by a duo or Group with vocals’.  
I must make mention of the fact that Rihanna’s “Umbrella” in the category ‘Record of the year’ is vying against previous award winning ‘big dogs’ namely Justin Timberlake’s, “What Goes around, Comes around”; Beyonce’s “Irreplaceable”; and Foo Fighters “The Pretender”.  In the ‘Song of The Year’ category, her contenders include two of my favorite singers, Amy Winehouse, with, “Rehab” and Corrine Bailey Rae’s “Like A Star” , I’m proud of them for being nominated also, being female and new that’s an acheivement.
The 50th Annual Grammy Awards will be televised live on CBS on February 10th, 2008 at 8pm(ET/PT).  Boy, I am biting my nails for this one, I strongly believe there is going to be some shake up this time.  New artiste taking over in 2008..while I’m at it I must congratulate all the nominees and Mr Kanye West who is leading the pack with his eight nominations, let the game begin.

Irie TV. The Caribbean Channel Network.

The technology of consuming entertainment is changing regularly, and the Caribbean community is not being left behind. Irie Jam Media Group officially launched its newest venture called Irie TV. Caribbean enthusiasts gathered at Spotlight Live to see what this new advancement in our culture was all about.

Irie TV is the brainchild of Bobby Clarke, deriving from a demand to view programming from the Caribbean. Using the internet protocol (IP) set top box, viewers can now view their favorite Caribbean programming channeled through the internet onto their television set. Irie TV is not a channel, but a “TV network of channels including news, sports and entertainment on one platform.”
Operating similarly to video on demand, one essentially can watch original Caribbean programming 24/7 anywhere in the world so long as you have internet and pay the $19.99 a month subscription, a reasonable price point to invest in our community. It’s the $150 activation fee that may keep you teetering on the fence as to its necessity in the household. Programming mostly from Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago seems to be the other downside, but I gather including other island programming will happen over time.
Overall the advanced technology is just what the Caribbean community needs to stay connected to our people around the world. Seeing as how you can carry the box anywhere in the world, I’ll provide the internet if bring the set top box?
