Sevin's "Rather Die Than Deny" Album Available Now!!!

Are you looking for a way to tame your unruly hair as well as turn heads in admiration?

If the answer is yes – then you need cornrow braids in your life.

A hairstyle that dates back to ancient Africa, cornrow styles are widely used and adapted by modern-day stylists all over the world.

We’re in absolute awe of these 20 different types of cornrows – and we can’t wait to share them with you!

Large Feed-In Cornrows

Probably our favourite of the thick cornrows hairstyles – and why wouldn’t it be? It’s so easy to fall in love with it! These large feed-in cornrows achieve classy, feminine and quirky all in one go. The detail that makes us lust after the look the most is the gold string that’s been incorporated into a few of the braids. It’s all about the details!

At 34 years old, Carmelo Anthony has one more big payday lined up as his Hall of Fame career enters its third act: One way or another, the 10-time All-Star will get all or most of the $27.9 million he's owed for 2018-19

Currently staring at a team salary north of $300 million once luxury taxes are accounted for, the team hopes to find some way to get Anthony's contract off the books - either through a trade, the stretch provision, or a combination of the provision and a buyout.

By simply stretching Anthony's contract (resulting in cap holds of $9.3 million over the next three seasons) the Thunder could reduce their luxury tax bill for 2018-19 from $150 million to $60 million. At this point in his career, he's probably not a $27.9-million player, let alone a $27.9-million player with an additional $90 million in tax ramifications.

And so, it's time to start considering where Anthony would be an appropriate fit at this juncture. Read More Here

Enock delivers an impressive solo debut that is chock full of his usual flow, some dance tracks, rugged hip hop beats and songs of honesty and restoration.

It all gets started with the banging “Liberation”. Stikk, who handles most of the production on the album, lays down a dope, but simple beat, which allows Enock to express his new liberation in Christ.

Lentil Salad with Summer Vegetables

Summer vegetables need little more than a quick vinaigrette to turn them into a fantastic salad. Add lentils to this one for some extra heft and nutrition with your meal.

    • Prep time: 10 minutes
    • Cook time: 25 minutes

  • Yield: 6 servings

Recipe Tester Note: Cucumber makes a fantastic addition to this summer salad!


For the salad

  • 1 cup Puy lentils
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Handful of parsley stems, tied together with a string
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 3 stalks celery, diced small
  • 1 yellow pepper, diced
  • 1 pint grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 1 cup baby arugula

For the vinaigrette

  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced parsley
  • Zest from 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Morton kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1 Cook the lentils: In a medium pot combine lentils, smashed garlic cloves, bay leaf, a handful of parsley stems. Add enough water to cover the lentils by 1 1/2 to 2 inches (about 2 1/2 cups).

Bring to a simmer and cook uncovered for about 25 minutes. The exact time will vary based on how dry the lentils are. When you get about 10 minutes out from the finished cooking time, start sampling the lentils to check for doneness—when cooked, they should be tender, but still intact. Continue sampling every 5 minutes until they’re ready.

When the lentils are done, drain them and discard the bay leaf, garlic, and parsley stems.

2 While the lentils cook, make the vinaigrette In a large bowl, whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, parsley, lemon zest, salt, oregano, sugar, and shallots.

3 Mix the hot lentils with the vinaigrette: Add the hot lentils to the vinaigrette, and stir to coat. By combining the vinaigrette with the lentils while they are still hot, the lentils will absorb more of the flavor from the vinaigrette making the salad extra tasty. Allow to cool.

4 Assemble the salad: Add the prepared vegetables and arugula. If your arugula is large, stack it and slice it into thick, short ribbons before adding it to the salad. Stir to combine. Add more salt and pepper to taste and finish with a drizzle of good quality extra virgin olive oil.

Serve room temperature or cold, as a vegetarian meal, or alongside a sandwich, frittata, chicken, or fish. This salad is best eaten the day it’s made.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Carolina Panthers announced the sale of the franchise to David Tepper has closed.

Tepper becomes only the second owner in team history. He started work on Monday.

Tepper, the founder and president of global hedge fund Appaloosa Management, L.P., bought the team from founder Jerry Richardson for $2.2 billion — the most ever paid for an NFL franchise. Richardson put the team up for sale in December after reports of sexual and racial misconduct in the workplace, which the league later confirmed.
