Couldn't ask for anything more. Soulfest first time in the N.Z. was off the hook. Common, D'Angelo and Maxwell to name a few. The vocals, the beats, the food, the whole atmosphere was buzzing from start to finish. Bumped into a couple of familiar faces on the way too.

DMRP now selling at 'The Unknown Collective'

DMRP gears are also on sale at The Uknown Collective in the scenic beach streets of Takapuna, Auckland. An ideal location for the locals to get their hands on some DMRP threads. The store is owned and inspired by visionary Dominic Ellett. Get down to the "The Unknown Collective" at experience kiwi talent at it's best!!!

 

DMRP were invited to share the DMRP vision with the team at Healthwest in Henderson, West Auckland. They requested a tee that they can mount on their wall as motivation for the many youth that pass through their building each day. Inspired by the work these amazing workers and volunteers do we donated a tee to do just that.

 

CONGRATS MATT!!!
Matt not only won the competition in Germany but also improved his national hammer U17 and U18 records (73,47m) with a throw of 74,20m. A very promising effort for this young and talented thrower whose objective is to confirm this performance at the World champs in 15 days. Matt indeed has a chance to make the final. But to be a possible challenger for the medals , he will need to get well over the 75m line ! 
And MATT STRONGLY BELIEVES HE CAN DO JUST THAT!!!!

Alarm over suicide trends for Pacific islanders in NZ

 

Updated Fri Feb 22, 2013 7:53am AEDT

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-02-22/an-calls-for-action-on-nz-child-suicide/4533550

Experts have called for an urgent change of attitude to suicide in New Zealand's Pacific islander community, after news that a child under the age of nine took their own life in 2011.

New Zealand's Chief Coroner, Judge Neil MacLean, is backing a move to provide suicide statistics in a more timely manner, rather than waiting several years for confirmed data.

Judge MacLean has been supported in his calls by prominent health experts, including a consultant on Pacific Islands health issues, David Lui, and University of Auckland research fellow, Dr Jemaima Tiatia.

Dr Tiatia told Radio Australia's Pacific Beat that the Pacific islander community can no longer avoid confronting the issue when young children's lives are at stake.

"We should be extremely shocked... we're seeing the rise in our young adults and our young people and now it's tipped over into our children, something's got to be done about it."

Tiatia said harsh physical discipline, sexual abuse, psychological abuse and lack of love and support can all be risk factors in youth suicide.

She said bullying, including internet bullying, could also contribute.

"Our families come to [New Zealand] with these pipe dreams of their children becoming brain surgeons or Super 15 rugby players and sometimes those expectations can cause a bit of stress and pressure on our young people when they don't cut it," she said.

Dr Tiatia said she fears the youth suicide rate will keep rising if the issue is not addressed.

"These young people are our future and they're dying off because they couldn't have a conversation about something that they felt wasn't appropriate.

Jordan XX8

This is inspiring: Michael Jordan didn't even make the cut for his High School Varsity Team. Turning his embarrassment and anger into practice and hardwork bought him to having the elite honour, not only him but his MERCHANDISE! Check this out

Michael Jordan Didn't let his Mind Rob his Potential!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

"So the quick recap is as follows: show up at 4:00, mingle for twenty minutes and then Spike Lee came out. Then Carmelo Anthony came out and Spike asked him a bunch of questions. Then we all got into a freight elevator with lime green lighting and the Epcot Center experience began. Once the elevator doors opened we were in a room with more of that green lighting, smoke machines, two fully screened out walls depicting the evolution of the Jordan Brand accompanied by a glass case featuring twenty-seven Jordan models in all black leather. Everyone was hovering around it taking a million photos."

 

 

"The best part of the video was that it coincided with a mirrored revolving wall on the other side of the room. As the video ended and the booming voice said something like "THE NEW AIIIR JORDAAAAN", the walls burst open with smoke and Air Jordans. Like I said, it was very reminiscent of a ride at Epcot Center or Disney World. So what did the new Jordan XX8 look like?!"


Release nationwide in the US 16th Feb 2013
