The New England Patriots released quarterback Cam Newton on Tuesday (Aug. 31), ending his competition with rookie Mac Jones for the top spot under center, according to The Boston Globe.

Newton and Jones duked it out all summer in training camp with Newton taking most of the first team reps. And even after the 32-year-old Newton started all three of the Pats’ preseason games, head coach Bill Belichick chose the 22-year-old Jones to be the team’s first-string signal caller heading into week one.

In three preseason games — against the Football Team, Eagles, and Giants — Jones showed poise and…


The “Earn Your Leisure Podcast” (EYL) hosted by Rashad Bilal and Troy Millings, has quickly become a premier destination for financial literacy information and entertaining entrepreneurial stories. On the latest episode the hosts landed one of their largest (in stature and impact) interviews yet — 5x NBA champion Shaquille O’Neal.

Shaq spoke to the guys about how he started his business journey, owning multiple franchises including Papa John’s, Auntie Anne’s, Krispy Kreme, and Five Guys. And how he invested in Google before it went public, and Ring before Amazon acquired it.

“The cover of NBA 2K is such a pivotal platform to inspire young ballers, and I wanted future WNBA stars to know that they can be cover athletes too,” Parker…


Essence Magazine recently published an interesting article delving into the sex and dating lives of Black women with herpes. Within the piece, several ladies offer insight into their lifestyles and explain some of the dating challenges they face because of their STD.

As each of the ladies address the stigma surrounding sexually transmitted infections (STIs), it’s safe to say most of the assumptions about herpes are due to misinformation and a general lack of knowledge. The truth is, they’re extremely common. And they’re not just rampant on college campuses.

According to a Dec. 2000 CDC study, African-American Women are at…

With the 24th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft the Pittsburgh Steelers selected Alabama stud running back Najee Harris. On the Steelers current depth chart Harris is already listed as the starter going into the 2021 season. He’ll look to help the black and gold improve upon their running game, which ranked last in 2020 and 29th in 2019.
