With the New York Knicks in this year’s NBA Playoffs a large portion of the Big Apple (all of them sports fans) is ecstatic about the opportunity. You see, it’s been a long time since the nation’s most abundant metropolis has staked its claim in basketball fame past the first round of action. Of course, folks can point out tons of reasons behind the lackluster performance of psst yearsinjuries, distractions, lack of moral support, politics even! Here’s what New York Citybased writer and new República recruit, F. Garcia has to say about some mayoralaffiliated reasons for New York’s recent basketball run.

Jasper Wong’s artist and cultural gathering in Honolulu, Hawaii, Pow Wow, just completed its second year on the island. The result was another successful joining of creative minds and hands that converged to engage the community and each other via murals, panel discussions and social events. From the looks of it the gathering is a success story for Wong, just not one that’s complete yet! You see, Pow Wow needs to be documented and its message needs spreading. Hence a Kickstarter campaign that’s seeking to publicly source a film documentary about the project and a book cataloguing all of the amazing art that it has produced. Not a bad thing at all! Even though they’ve already reached their pledge goal fans can still jump on board to contribute and receive supporter perks as well.
