In film today, we are talking about “Black Panther”.
Black Panther is a story coming from Marvels: Captain America.
Some media personalities are calling this a “Black James Bond type” film.
AKAM’s favorite is Angela Bassett. Angela has a fantastic film history.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner and Hollywood to debut thrilling films is beyond exciting for us at AKAM.
Today, let’s refresh our “Crazy in Love” with Beyonce and her remix used for “50 Shades of Grey”.
Looking forward to:
50 Shades of FREED
Living Legend Quincy Jones is a hot topic of the day. As a musician, the article was quite entertaining and we can not wait to see his film.
Favorite Quote: “A symphony conductor knows more about how to lead than most businesspeople” -Quincy Jones-Vulture, 2018
Health Note: Quincy Jones believes vitamin B would have saved his Mother but was denied vitamin B. So, I want everyone to notice these properties.
The B vitamins are, taken from MedlinePlus:
B5 (pantothenic acid)
These vitamins help the process your body uses to get or make energy from the food you eat. They also help form red blood cells. You can get B vitamins from proteins such as fish, poultry, meat, eggs, and dairy products. Leafy green vegetables, beans, and peas also have B vitamins. Many cereals and some breads have added B vitamins.
Not getting enough of certain B vitamins can cause diseases. A lack of B12 or B6 can cause anemia.
This one is for my classroom educators and anyone else that uses a whiteboard.
I had tape that just would not budge until I finally took some time to figure out how to attack it.
You want to first:
Most of your tape and residue should come right off, easily.
I used the straw, but the Trigger Pro nozzle should be easier, if and only if you can conveniently locate it at the grocery store or on your routine errands.
After you finish with tape removal. Your board will be greasy.
Now it is time for good wash. Use your favorite cleaning product and then give it a good scrub with a Brillo pad, to remove any stubborn residue.
Finally, take your favorite drying towel and wipe it back to dry natural clean whiteboard health.
Happy Cleaning AKAMites
All Fired up to finally attempt lifting some weights to tone my post birth giving body, after 3 years.
I bought fancy gloves 2 years ago for weights.
The day I decided to use them, of course they are lost.
Buy new or improvise?
Well… that is quite simple, be it I don’t go to the gym to pick up a guy.
I thought…I just want a grip and sanitation protection, so……
You can trim these darling gloves to your fit, if you’d like. Nice grip, gets the job done.
Gardening Gloves or Tool Gloves at your local Dollar Tree, for $1.
Saves me money and headache of wasting money, for a few minutes.
Yesterday, I saw an ad for the newest film “50 Shades of Grey: Freed”. Just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Okay, So because I have failed to read the entire series and watch all the films, I will try to provide us a “collabo”.
Okay…so, we are at the elevator….last place I remember…..
Now, we have a new film, I unfortunately missed in the midst of watching cartoons…..
So, I am Mother with little time to focus on serious films…so I find myself ‘reading’ about them.
I have gathered some info from the IMDb. Here is the synopsis…I like to the point info. Thanks IMDb (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4465564/plotsummary?ref_=tt_stry_pl)
Over dinner, Christian explains that he wants to take Ana back to be his submissive mate, and he is willing to negotiate with her on her terms. She just wants him to not inflict his dominant desires upon her, to which he agrees. Eventually, they renew their relationship and start having kinky sex again.
Jack invites Ana out for drinks. Before meeting with Jack, Ana is approached by the woman who was following her. She knows Ana’s name and says little before Jack pulls Ana away. Christian finds them in the bar and is suspicious of Jack’s true intentions when he catches Jack acting a bit flirty toward Ana. Later at home, Christian informs Ana that he bought SIP and will essentially be her and Jack’s boss. Ana isn’t too thrilled at this concept.
Ana sees the same strange woman out on the streets while out for breakfast with Christian. She asks him who the woman is. At Christian’s home, he takes out a file with pictures of this woman. Christian explains that the woman’s name is Leila Williams, and she was a former submissive of Christian’s. She wanted more from the relationship than Christian did, so they parted ways. Leila got married to another man, but he later died in a car accident, leading to Leila having a nervous breakdown. Ana asks Christian if he has a file on her as well. Without an answer, she know he does and demands to see it.
In Christian’s room, Ana sees a picture of his birth mother, who slightly resembles Ana. Christian mentions that she was a crack addict who died of an overdose when he was age 4 and was not found for three days while he stayed with her body. He later met his stepmother Grace (Marcia Gay Harden) at the hospital, and she would later care for the boy.
Christian invites Ana to a ball. He takes her to a salon in preparation and runs into Elena Lincoln (Kim Basinger), the woman that got Christian into the BDSM lifestyle. Ana is none too happy since she knows Elena was Christian’s dominant. Christian assures Ana that Elena is just a business partner since they co-own the salon. It does nothing to ease Ana’s mind.
Before they head off to the ball, Christian takes out Ben Wa balls for Ana to put in her vagina for consistent pleasure during the party. He then tells her it is a masquerade ball. The two meet with Grace and Christian’s adoptive sister Mia (Rita Ora). They sit for a bidding to a luxury vacation, which Ana wins when she bids $24,000 that Christian had transferred into her bank account. In the bathroom, Elena approaches Ana and urges her to break it off with Christian before both of them get hurt. Ana tells Elena to leave them alone.
In the parking garage at Christian’s home, he and Ana find that Ana’s car has been vandalized.
Ana and Christian later go on their romantic getaway on Christian’s boat, which he named after Grace.
Back at work, Jack is more cold to Ana after learning Christian is her boyfriend. He reminds her to set up a meeting in New York between himself and other publishers, plus to get a room for herself since his assistant needs to be with him. Later, Jack tries to seduce Ana in his office but comes off like a predator. Ana kicks Jack in the groin and runs out of the building. Christian is outside as Ana runs into his arms telling him what Jack tried to do. Christian later has Jack fired.
With Jack gone, Ana is given a temporary position to his old job as acting editor. She attends a meeting with the higher-ups and offers a suggestion that they reach out to a broader demographic instead of just publishing to established readers.
Christian asks Ana to move in with her, and she agrees. As they go to pick up Ana’s stuff from her place, Leila is there, having been stalking both Ana and Christian. Leila pulls out a gun. Ana tries to placate her by making it seem like Christian still cares about her. Christian and his bodyguard Taylor (Max Martini) arrive after Leila has already fired a shot at the wall. Christian orders Leila to get on her knees, and she immediately obeys. Ana thinks Christian can’t get off without being dominant, and she leaves the house for hours. Meanwhile, Leila is sent to a psych ward to get help.
When Ana returns home, Christian is pissed at her until Ana explains her feelings toward his dominance. He then turns submissive to Ana and gets on his knees so that she won’t leave him. Ana gives in and they go off to have sex.
Christian has another nightmare while Ana is awake. She goes over to comfort him in bed. He then asks Ana to marry him, but she doesn’t give an answer because she needs time to consider.
Christian goes with a business partner to a trip in Portland. As he returns from the trip, his helicopter’s engine breaks down, causing them to crash into a forest. Ana hears the news while out for drinks with Kate (Eloise Mumford), Elliott (Luke Grimes), and Jose. Ana waits and watches the news with Christian’s family. Just as it is reported that Christian was found, he walks into the apartment. Everyone embraces him.
Ana later finds out from Mia that Christian’s birthday is coming up, as he failed to mention. Ana gets him a keychain with “Yes!” written on the back, meaning she has accepted his proposal. Christian is elated.
The couple attend a birthday party for Christian. He announces his and Ana’s engagement to the whole party. Elena later confronts Ana and accuses her of being after Christian’s money and not actually loving him. Ana throws her drink in Elena’s face. Christian orders her to leave. Grace overhears the confrontation and slaps Elena before demanding she leave the house.
Christian takes Ana to a nearby boathouse where he proposes with an actual engagement ring. She accepts, and fireworks start to pop. The couple join Christian’s family to watch the fireworks together. Meanwhile, across the lake, Jack is watching the fireworks and looks really worn out. He holds a picture of the Grey family and burns out Christian’s face with a cigarette.
Note: After the end credits, there is a brief teaser for “Fifty Shades Freed”, which sees Ana and Christian about to get married, plus the promise of more kinky sex.
Okay…. So, now we are “Freed”.
