Carmelo Anthony Hosts Town Hall Meeting With Team USA, Police & Local Youth (Video)

Carmelo Anthony is continuing to show up as the Knicks star, and Team USA leader brought all members of the United States men’s and women’s basketball Olympic teams together Monday for a town hall discussion with community leaders and local children and young adults in light of recent police violence.

Anthony called the meeting “an open forum, open dialogue, and honest conversation,” explored issues of trust, communication, and respect between police officers and civilians.

“There was some very, very powerful messages that were being talked about amongst not just us as athletes, but the youth,” Anthony said at a press conference afterwards. “And the youth really, really spoke out today about how they feel about their community, how they feel about police officers, how they feel about relationships, and how we can mend these relationships.”

About 200 participants in total participated, including representatives from the LAPD, the Brotherhood Crusade, and local Boys & Girls Clubs.

“It’s going to take a collective effort,” Anthony said. “And it’s going to take time. But we have to start it by talking about it, being honest with each other, not just pointing the finger at the officers, or the officers pointing the fingers at us.”

Jerry Rice Living Up to GOAT Status; Gives Shirtless Lap Dance at Party (Video)

Jerry Rice loves to put on a show at the American Century Celebrity golf tourney in Lake Tahoe, as he once again went shirtless to please the ladies.

Last year it was Rice and a bikini clad young lady. This time, Rice used his assistant as a prop, giving her a lap dance to 50 Cent’s "In Da Club" and an E-40 hit.

Terrell Owens & Brendan Ayanbadejo Petition to Bring Food Stamps Online (Video)

This is a conversation that me and several of my peers are constantly having, and it’s good to see that folks across the country are having it as well.

In this new day and time, supermarkets are making it convenient for you to shop and purchase healthy and nutritious food online as long as you are paying with cash or credit card.

Terrell Owens and Brendan Ayanbadejo (who grew up on food stamps) are both big supporters of Thrive Market, which is the first online store that makes organic products available to all at wholesale prices.

Thrive Market's petition is to get the USDA to allow food stamps to be used online. It’s an issue that affects 46 million Americans (1 in 5 kids), many of whom have NO access to healthy food. 

Being able to buy and purchase online would solve the problem, but food stamps cannot be used online which makes no sense when many families using the access card don’t have reliable transportation.

Thrive Market has a mission to make healthy living easy and affordable for everyone, despite location or income class.

Thrive Market has investors like Justin Timberlake, Will Smith, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Sofia Vergara, Zoe Saldana and Demi Moore.

Owens and Ayanbadejo both created these hilarious videos: 

Promoting the petition is at www.thriveaction.org.

In addition to Owens and Ayanbadejo, several other celebs have jumped on board in support including Rosario Dawson, Kristen Bell, Shailene Woodley, Jordana Brewster, Russell Simmons, Jillian Michaels and Whitney Port.
