A banger. Arranged by Kanye. Q3 on the way, btw.

One of the best MCs and artists in hip-hop and popular music (redundant?) was once a writer for Community. Remember when we all thought this was a phase, novelty, etc?

Young British Muslims tell the Islamic State: #NotInMyName

There’s a new trend taking over the social media pages of young British Muslims, and it’s targeted right at the Islamic State. 

As Mic has previously reported, there’s something troubling about calling this terrorist group the “Islamic State,” since they do not accurately represent Islam or Islamic beliefs, but a twisted and perverted interpretation of the global religion. 

So to combat this, young activists, led by Britain’s Active Change charity, are telling the terrorists to stop acting under the banner of Islam by circulating the hashtag #NotInMyName and calling out the group for “hiding behind a false Islam.”

The message is clear | Follow micdotcom 

Don’t believe the hype*

“Yumiko Fukushima, who married Ichiro in 1999, told the Mariners that she and her husband wanted to find a three-bedroom apartment — one bedroom for the couple, another for visitors, plus a third bedroom. Gillick was the general manager of the Mariners and the advice from the team was that a two-bedroom place would suffice, Gillick recalled, but Ichiro’s spouse said no, they needed a third bedroom — because Ichiro would use that room to practice his swing.” —from the article “A Tireless Devotion to Hit”
