When I first started college, it was hard for me to connect to the wireless Internet. I would have to open my door as if I were inviting the wireless into my room just so my computer could actually find and connect to it.

Neighborhoods that once grew beautiful pastel peonies and shining marigolds are now barren. Homes that held memories of a bright-eyed baby’s first steps are replaced with blown out windows and graffiti-stained walls. This is the depiction of the average Detroit urban community. The urban communities have been neglected and left to wither away to nothing. With help and dedication from the community, neighborhoods can be rebuilt to provide better and safer living.
“A garden is a metaphor for life at almost every level.” As “Secrets of the Italian Gardener” by Andrew Crofts offers gardening metaphor after gardening metaphor, this weighty quote is a natural place to begin.
“It’s a paper town. I mean look at it, Q: look at all those cul-de-sacs, those streets that turn in on themselves, all the houses that were built to fall apart. All those paper people living in their paper houses, burning the future to stay warm. All the paper kids drinking beer some bum bought for them at the paper convenience store.

Sept. 13, 1996, was a somber day when the music industry was at a standstill after the death of Hip-Hop legend Tupac Shakur was killed at the age of 25 in a drive by shooting in Las Vegas. During his controversial five year career, his compelling lyricism with his poetic narrations of life of the streets and his anger with the treatment of young black males paralleled and made people take notice.
Jody Rosen, pop music critic of New York Magazine, recently wrote, “The only people who like a black bohemian more than fellow black bohemians are white rock critics.” This was from his article about Janelle Monáe, whose new release, “The Electric Lady,” has been one of the most anticipated albums of 2013.
