Tony Morales, the barber shop’s owner, contests Nixon’s story and claims Nixon, who was an independent contractor with the shop, was operating without a barber’s license, and “couldn’t carry his weight” at the shop, according to the Herald. “It’s sad that people like Joel try to take advantage of their situation and create false accusations,” he added.
Would-be Georgia gubernatorial candidate and all-around civic activist Killer Mike made an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night, where he discussed his stylish sweatsuit, why Bernie Sanders is a politician in the tradition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s philosophy of non-violence, and whether he uses the name “Killer Mike” for leverage in parent-teacher conferences.

As workers and supporters in this age-old field of trade, we find ourselves embarking on a new season in barbering. 2015 was filled with much of the same things we have seen a lot of in recent years, tons of networking, plenty of shows and educational events; several new products and few tools that were, nostalgically, re-released.
You sit in the chair and wait for money to come to you. Word of mouth is good but not enough. Just standing outside your shop and passing out your business cards will make a big difference.

The episode, ”America’s Game and the Iran Hostage Crisis,” was created by George Clooney’s Bluesmoke Productions and directed by actor Tate Donovan, who was in the Academy Award-winning film ”Argo.” It depicts how some smuggled-in audio tapes of Washington Redskins games and a Super Bowl helped keep the hostages connected to America during their captivity.
One of the most impactful scenes in ”Concussion” is a brief and wordless one: Just a few seconds, really, of a high school football team going through its drills.
We don’t know who these young, determined, helmeted kids are, but the message is sobering, especially if you’re a parent: Concussion-related brain damage from football is not merely a threat to the professionals featured in the film. It’s a threat to our football-playing kids, too.

Still too early to tell if they’ll be football’s latest trend.
DECEMBER 9TH, 2015
If you’re an admirer of the obsolete Predator or the vintage but still in-style (somewhat!) Copa Mundials, prepare yourself for what might be the latest trend in football footwear: The “Yeezy Ace.”
That’s right. Kanye West, along with footwear company Red Ribbon Recon and lifestyle blog “Kicks to the Pitch,” has teamed up with Adidas to transform a pair of his Yeezy Boost 350s trainers into a set of custom football boots as part of Copa Basel, a fan event held at Art Basel Miami.
The 38-year-old music icon has made a living writing lyrics for the better part of his career, and dipping his toes into the water of football fashion will surely be a test of whether he can measure up to the likes of other Adidas and Nike products.
For now, we’ll be looking out for leaked images of professionals actually experimenting with these things.

God Bless San Bernardino, Paris, Chicago and our schools ravished by senseless violence!
Dear 2015,I want to begin by saying you are very finicky. Why can’t you choose one or two hair trends and stick to it? You’re all over the place. For instance, you started off the year showcasing big, beautiful braids (think Laverne Cox’s at the SAG awards), but by the summer you flipped the script and said back top knots and box braids were in.
Goodell says Wednesday that he reached out last month to former players, coaches, general managers and others, ”to come together and try and see if we can study this and come up with proposals for the competition committee to consider.”
Goodell wants those people to examine how the play is officiated and coached, and ”how fans react to this.”
ST. PAUL, Minn. – Friendly arguments aren’t hard to find in a barbershop, but try cutting in on a hallowed symbol — that red, white and blue barber pole — and it may be time to hide the scissors.
Steeped in history and symbolism, the iconic cylinders spinning on storefronts across America are an increasing source of friction between barbers and beauticians.
Minnesota, Michigan and North Carolina are the latest fronts in a spreading legislative campaign to reserve the poles for barbers. The proposals, which often include fines for offenders, are driving a new wedge in a trade where gender lines have long run deep.
“The barber pole is the oldest sign in town besides the cross. It should not be displayed where there is not a licensed barber,” says Charles Kirkpatrick of Arkansas, a barber since 1959 who keeps tabs on such legislation for the National Association of Barber Boards of America.
For many, the only real difference between a barber and hairstylist is the clientele they serve. But barbers say the tools of their trade and unique services they provide make them different, and laws are needed to prevent beauty parlors, salons and other establishments from passing themselves off as barbershops, including chain shops that use the barber name and logo but don’t have a licensed barber on site.
Cosmetologists argue that haircuts are haircuts, and say the protective efforts are silly and chauvinist.
“They’re still trying to hang onto the vestiges that say they’re special. I can cut a man’s hair. Why shouldn’t I be able to put a barber pole up?” says Jeanie Thompson, owner of a

Adam Meyer offers his opinions on who you should start and sit for Week 13 in fantasy football
The Fitzmagic was real last week when the Jets quarterback pulled four passing TDs out of his hat. As for his opponent, the Giants secondary has allowed at least 300 passing yards in three of the past four games. As for Fitzpatrick’s consistency, he has thrown at least two touchdown passes in three of his last four contests.
If you drafted CJA in the first round of your 2015 fantasy draft and then dropped him after his slow start, don’t read this portion. Anderson had the best game of the season last week against the Patriots (113 yards and two TDs). In the snow, Anderson was the Rudolph to Gary Kubiak’s sleigh. As for the Chargers, the defense has allowed an opposing running back to tally at least 23 fantasy points in two of the past three games.
Thankfully, Andrew Luck missing more games didn’t seem to impact Hilton last week. Against the Buccaneers, Hilton was targeted a team-high 12 times and caught six passes for 95 yards with two touchdowns. Also, in the past six games, the Steelers have allowed an opposing wide receiver to produce at least 17 fantasy points. While Donte Moncrief could be that guy in Week 13, I think Hilton has the edge. Possibly both, too.
It was the Thursday night game against the Titans where we heard the news that Jacksonville would incorporate Thomas more in the red zone. That night, he made five receptions and scored a TD. Last week, Thomas caught nine passes for 116 yards and a TD. With Allen Hurns likely sidelined, Thomas will get a big boost in the rankings (as will Allen Robinson).
It seems to be three TDs or bust for T-Mobile this season. In every start, Taylor either accrues three passing touchdowns or is forced to settle for one (he was also saddled with a zero-TD game in Week 11). This week will likely be a bust for Taylor. The Texans have only allowed one passing TD since Week 7.
As much as it pains me to put Miller’s name on this side of the start/sit list, it must be done. Last week, he recorded five carries (two yards). Two weeks ago, he notched seven rushing attempts (44 yards). Sure, Bill Lazor has finally been relieved of his duties as the offensive coordinator, but I need to see results before I get fooled again. Also, the Ravens haven’t allowed more than 13 fantasy points to an opposing running back since Week 7 (Chris Johnson).
WR – Stefon Diggs, MIN (vs. SEA)
Antonio Brown, one of the most explosive receivers in the game, was held to only 51 receiving yards last week while under Richard Sherman’s thumb. Diggs will likely draw that type of attention this week. However, I don’t expect Jarius Wright to have a Markus Wheaton-type game with Diggs buried by Sherman.
TE – Charles Clay, BUF (vs. HOU)
Ever since his hot start in the first four weeks of the season, Clay has been ceramic (sorry). In his last five starts, Clay has compiled over 50 yards only once. We already established the fact that the Houston defense is stingy. When it comes to opposing TEs, they are even tougher. Only two TEs have scored against the Texans this season (Travis Kelce and Julius Thomas). Don’t expect Clay to join that short list.

While the rest of us are warming up our roots in time for winter, Beyonce, aka Queen Bee, aka Mrs Carter, is busy being the epitome of summer with silken blonde hair. The star has been sporting golden locks for a while now, but instead of deepening her color for cool weather, she’s done the opposite. The results? Barbie-like waves of almost white blonde perfection.And here she is at a party over the weekend, looking similarly flawless but with hair that’s even more Marilyn.
You should have been there!
Thats probably not something a media company should tell its family… but its the truth. We exist to put the spotlight on YOU; the barber, the stylist, the artist, the hair enthusiast… YOU. There was a great turn out! Brothers and sisters from all over the nation came out to show their skills, showcase their products, represent their cities, and teach some lessons. Most importantly, they came out to push the culture forward.
This past Sunday, we were able to meet with some of the most distinguished in the industry. @DLMasterBarber dropped some words of wisdom and wealth, we interviewed some local (and distant) artists, @BarberGeeks hooked me up with a fly straight edge (shot out), and… Well, I’m not going to get into the details because YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE.
