Owner and visionary Jamal Vernon sits down with Batchelor to discuss his brand, and the inspiration that propelled him to launch Urban Cowboy LLC

Photography by W.T. Deepvisualz

In the world of fashion, innovation and creativity often go hand in hand. For Jamal Vernon, the founder of Urban Cowboy LLC, these qualities are at the core of his brand’s ethos. Inspired by a desire to reinvent the classic cowboy boot for contemporary urban wear, Jamal embarked on a journey that would redefine footwear fashion.

The idea for Urban Cowboy was born out of a simple yet profound concept: to create a cowboy boot that seamlessly blends practicality with style. Jamal envisioned a shoe that retained the timeless appeal of the cowboy boot while catering to the demands of modern urban living. After countless design sketches and iterations, the vision for Urban Cowboy began to take shape – a high-end shoe company that pushes the boundaries of traditional footwear. The name “Urban Cowboy” perfectly encapsulates the essence of Jamal’s creation – a fusion of rugged cowboy aesthetics with an urban twist. By melding these two seemingly disparate elements, Jamal set out to create a shoe that is both distinctive and versatile, appealing to fashion-forward individuals with a penchant for originality.

While Urban Cowboy draws inspiration from established designer shoe wear brands, Jamal is quick to emphasize the brand’s unique style and originality. Every design is a testament to Jamal’s unwavering commitment to pushing the boundaries of footwear fashion, resulting in a collection that is unlike anything else on the market.

Since its launch on December 25th, 2023, Urban Cowboy has experienced remarkable success, expanding its reach beyond Jamal’s base in South Florida to include states such as Texas, New York, Vegas, California, and even Jamaica. The brand’s presence in multiple stores across South Florida and Jamaica is a testament to its growing popularity and widespread appeal.

As Urban Cowboy continues to evolve and grow, Jamal remains committed to pushing the envelope and exploring new avenues for innovation. With exciting developments in the works, including new releases and collaborations, fans can expect to be continually surprised and delighted by what Urban Cowboy has to offer.

Jamal’s journey from the confines of prison to the forefront of the fashion industry is a testament to the transformative power of creativity and determination. Urban Cowboy’s origin story serves as a reminder that no matter where you come from, it’s never too late to pursue your dreams and change your life for the better.

As Urban Cowboy continues to grow and evolve, it’s exciting to see what the future holds for the brand. With new releases and developments in the works, fans can look forward to staying updated through the website and Instagram, eagerly anticipating the next chapter in the Urban Cowboy journey.

A.I. systems may make decisions that have significant consequences for individuals and society, yet they lack the ability to understand moral reasoning or take responsibility for their actions. Limiting the use of A.I. in certain contexts may be necessary to ensure human autonomy and accountability.”


In recent years, the notion of artificial intelligence (A.I.) taking over the world has shifted from science fiction to a topic of serious discussion. With advancements in machine learning, robotics, and automation, AI has the potential to revolutionize industries and fundamentally alter the way we work and live. While the prospect of AI-driven progress is exciting, it also brings with it significant challenges, particularly in terms of employment and human adaptation.

One of the most immediate concerns surrounding the rise of AI is its impact on employment. As AI systems become increasingly sophisticated, they have the capacity to automate routine tasks across various sectors, from manufacturing and transportation to customer service and data analysis. This automation has the potential to displace millions of workers globally, leading to widespread job loss and economic disruption.

Virtual Try-On and Fit Prediction: Virtual try-on technology powered by AI enables customers to visualize how clothing and accessories will look on them before making a purchase. By analyzing body measurements and fabric properties, AI can accurately predict how garments will fit, reducing the likelihood of returns and improving the online shopping experience.

Fashion Design and Trend Forecasting: AI can assist fashion designers in the creative process by analyzing trends, predicting consumer demand, and generating design concepts. By analyzing social media, runway shows, and historical data, AI algorithms can identify emerging trends and provide valuable insights to designers, helping them stay ahead of the curve. AI-powered visual search and image recognition technologies enable customers to find products based on images rather than text-based queries.

The rise of AI presents both opportunities and challenges for humanity

Jobs that involve repetitive, rule-based tasks are particularly susceptible to automation. For example, administrative roles, assembly line work, and even certain aspects of white-collar professions such as accounting and legal research could be performed more efficiently by AI systems. Additionally, advancements in robotics threaten to replace manual labor in industries like agriculture, construction, and logistics. AI has the potential to revolutionize the fashion industry in numerous ways, offering innovative solutions that streamline processes, enhance creativity, and improve the overall consumer experience. Here are several ways AI can be beneficial in the world of fashion: AI algorithms can analyze vast amounts of data, including customer preferences, browsing history, and purchase behavior, to provide personalized

Indeed, the rise of AI-generated models can have a significant impact on photographers and graphic designers, as these professions often rely on human subjects for their work.

AI-generated models can be used as alternatives to human models for photography projects. This could lead to a decrease in demand for professional models, particularly for commercial and advertising photography. Hiring human models can be expensive, especially for large-scale projects or campaigns. Using AI-generated models could offer cost savings for photographers, as they eliminate the need for model fees, wardrobe, makeup, and other associated expenses.

AI-generated models can be customized to fit specific aesthetic preferences, allowing photographers to explore more creative concepts without the limitations of working with human models. This could lead to more experimentation and innovation in photography.

While AI-generated models offer certain advantages, there may be ethical considerations regarding the use of digital representations of humans. Photographers and clients may need to navigate questions surrounding authenticity, representation, and the potential impact on human models’ livelihoods. AI-generated models could be used in place of stock photos featuring human subjects. This could lead to more cohesive and personalized design solutions.

The rise of AI presents both opportunities and challenges for humanity. While it has the potential to reshape industries, improve efficiency, and drive innovation, it also poses significant risks in terms of job displacement and socioeconomic inequality. To navigate this transformative period successfully, individuals, organizations, and societies must embrace lifelong learning, creativity, collaboration, and compassionate policymaking. By doing so, we can harness the power of AI to create a more prosperous and equitable future for all. AI has the potential to transform every aspect of the fashion industry, from design and production to retail and customer experience. By embracing AI-driven technologies and innovation, fashion

brands can stay competitive, adapt to changing consumer preferences, and create more personalized and sustainable fashion experiences for their customers.

AI-powered technologies often rely on vast amounts of personal data, raising concerns about privacy and surveillance. Limiting the use of AI could help protect individuals’ privacy rights and prevent misuse of their data. AI systems may make decisions that have significant consequences for individuals and society, yet they lack the ability to understand moral reasoning or take responsibility for their actions.

The United States, often hailed as a global powerhouse, stands as a beacon of pros perity and opportunity. However, beneath the gleaming skyscrapers and bustling cities lies an issue that challenges the very essence of the American Dream – the staggering and seemingly intractable problem of homelessness. The stark contrast between the nation’s economic prowess and the soaring rates of homelessness raises crucial questions about social responsibility and the need for comprehensive solutions.

The extent of homelessness in the United States is undeniably alarming. According to recent reports, there are approximately half a million people experiencing homelessness on any given night, a stark reminder of the vast economic disparities within the nation. The question that looms large is: How can a country that leads the world in many aspects leave such a significant portion of its population without a place to call home?

One of the root causes of the homelessness crisis in the U.S. is the widening wealth gap. While the nation boasts an impressive GDP and a thriving economy, a substantial portion of the population struggles to make ends meet. Rising housing costs, stagnant wages, and limited access to affordable healthcare contribute to the vulnerability of many individuals and families, pushing them to the brink of homelessness.

The issue is further exacerbated by the insufficient support systems in place to assist those in need. Mental health services, addiction treatment programs, and affordable housing initiatives are all underfunded and overwhelmed, leaving countless individuals without the necessary resources to break free from the cycle of homelessness. rings true now more than ever.

The Call for Social Responsibility: As the global powerhouse, the United States has a

moral imperative to address the homelessness crisis within its borders. The notion that a nation’s success should be measured not only by economic prowess but also by the well-being of its citizens rings true now more than ever.

* Affordable Housing Initiatives: Implementing policies to increase the availability of affordable housing is paramount. This includes investing in low-income housing projects, rent control measures, and providing subsidies to those struggling to keep a roof over their heads.

* Comprehensive Healthcare Services: Prioritizing mental health services and addiction treatment programs can help address the underlying issues that contribute to homelessness. A healthier population is a more resilient one, better equipped to overcome challenges.

* Education and Employment Opportunities: Initiatives that focus on education and job training can empower individuals to secure stable employment and break free from the cycle of poverty. Bridging the gap between skills and employment opportunities is essential.

* Community-Based Support Programs: Strengthening community-based support programs, including shelters, food banks, and outreach initiatives, can provide immediate assistance to those in need and create a safety net for vulnerable populations.

The excessive homelessness in the United States is a societal issue that demands urgent attention and concerted efforts. By addressing the root causes, investing in social programs, and fostering a sense of responsibility toward our fellow citizens, the nation can make significant strides in mitigating this crisis. It is time for the U.S. to harness its economic power to create a more inclusive and compassionate society, ensuring that the American Dream is within reach for all its residents, not just a privileged few.

In recent years, our society has been plagued by a disturbing trend of violence and senseless murders that have left communities reeling and families shattered. From mass shootings to senseless acts of aggression, the prevalence of violence has become an urgent and pressing issue that demands our collective attention and action. In this article, we will explore the root causes of this epidemic and discuss proactive measures that individuals and communities can take to stop the cycle of violence and create a safer, more compassionate society for all.

To effectively address the issue of violence, it is crucial to understand the underlying factors that contribute to its prevalence. Poverty, inequality, lack

of access to mental health services, systemic racism, and the proliferation of firearms are just a few of the complex issues that fuel violence in our society. Additionally, social isolation, trauma, and a culture that glorifies aggression further exacerbate the problem, creating a cycle of violence that is difficult to break.

At the heart of stopping violence lies the cultivation of empathy and compassion within ourselves and our communities. By fostering a culture of understanding and solidarity, we can create spaces where individuals feel valued, supported, and connected to one another. Empathy allows us to recognize the humanity in others, even those who may have caused harm, and work towards addressing the root causes

of violence with compassion and understanding.

Preventing violence requires a multifaceted approach that involves community engagement, education, and proactive intervention. Investing in youth programs, mental health services, and conflict resolution training can provide individuals with the tools they need to navigate challenges without resorting to violence. Additionally, addressing the social and economic factors that contribute to violence, such as poverty and unemployment, can help create more equitable and inclusive communities where all individuals can thrive.

Advocacy plays a crucial role in driving policy change and holding elected officials accountable for enacting legislation that prioritizes violence prevention and intervention. This includes advocating for common-sense gun control measures, investing in community-based violence prevention programs, and addressing systemic inequalities that perpetuate violence in marginalized communities. By raising awareness and mobilizing support, we can effectuate meaningful change at the local, state, and national levels.

The loss of our loved ones, including some of our most prolific artists, to senseless violence is a heartbreaking reality that demands our attention and action. It serves as a

stark reminder of the urgent need to wake up and lead with love in our communities and society at large. Love is the antidote to violence, hatred, and division. It compels us to seek understanding, empathy, and connection with one another, rather than resorting to aggression and conflict. As we mourn the loss of those who have been taken from

us too soon, let us honor their memory by committing ourselves to fostering a culture of love, compassion, and peace. It is through collective efforts rooted in love that we can create a world where every individual is valued, respected, and cherished, and where senseless violence becomes a relic of the past.

Stopping the violence that plagues our society requires a concerted effort from individuals, communities, and policymakers alike.

By addressing the root causes of violence, fostering empathy and compassion, and engaging in proactive prevention efforts, we can create a safer and more equitable society for all. Together, we have the power to break the cycle of violence and build a future where every individual can live free from fear and harm.

Reggae’s Resonance: Exploring it’s Global Influence and Musical Legacy

Reggae music, with its infectious rhythms, soulful melodies, and powerful messages, has transcended borders and captivated audiences around the world since its inception in Jamaica in the late 1960s. What began as a genre rooted in the struggles and aspirations of the Jamaican people has evolved into a global phenomenon, shaping the musical landscape and inspiring countless artists across different genres and continents.

One of the most significant contributions of reggae music to the world stage is its role as a vehicle for social and political commentary. From the socially conscious lyrics of Bob Marley to the rebellious anthems of Peter Tosh and Burning Spear, reggae has served as a powerful platform for artists to address issues of inequality, injustice, and oppression. Its messages of unity, love, and resistance have resonated with audiences worldwide, sparking movements for social change and inspiring generations to stand up for their beliefs.

But the influence of reggae music extends far beyond its lyrical content. Its distinctive sound, characterized by offbeat rhythms, deep basslines, and skanking guitar chords, has left an indelible mark on a wide range of musical genres. One such genre is dancehall music, which emerged in Jamaica in the late 1970s as a more upbeat and energetic offshoot of reggae. With its pulsating rhythms and catchy melodies, dancehall quickly gained popularity both in Jamaica and abroad, influencing artists across the Caribbean and beyond.

In recent years, dancehall music has evolved further, giving rise to subgenres such as reggaeton and Afro beats. Reggae-

ton, which originated in Puerto Rico in the 1990s, blends elements of reggae, dancehall, hip-hop, and Latin music to create a unique and vibrant sound that has taken the world by storm. Similarly, Afro beats, a genre that emerged in West Africa in the early 2000s, draws inspiration from reggae, dancehall, and traditional African music to create infectious rhythms and infectious melodies that have captivated audiences worldwide.

Interestingly, the influence of reggae music can also be felt in unexpected places, such as hip-hop, a genre that originated in the Bronx, New York, in the 1970s. Jamaican-born DJ Kool Herc, whose real name is Clive Campbell, is often credited as one of the pioneers of hip-hop, introducing techniques such as the “breakbeat” and “scratching” to the genre. His innovative approach to DJing laid the groundwork for hiphop’s explosive growth and its eventual emergence as a global cultural phenomenon.

In conclusion, the influence of reggae music on the world stage is undeniable. From its roots in Jamaica to its impact on genres such as dancehall, reggaeton, Afro beats, and hip-hop, reggae continues to shape the musical landscape and inspire artists across different cultures and continents. As music remains one of the most powerful influences in the world, it is certain that reggae’s legacy will continue to evolve and resonate for generations to come, reminding us of the enduring power of rhythm, melody, and message.

Luxury at it’s Finest

BATCHELOR 112 The Fashion Issue Automobile


When it comes to the pinnacle of automotive luxury, one name stands out above the rest: Bugatti. Synonymous with opulence, performance, and prestige, Bugatti has etched its mark in the annals of automotive history as the epitome of engineering excellence and unmatched extravagance. With a legacy spanning over a century, Bugatti continues to captivate enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike with its unparalleled craftsmanship and technological prowess, making it one of the most coveted and expensive automobiles in the world.

Founded in 1909 by the visionary Italian-born French automobile designer Ettore Bugatti, Bugatti quickly gained recognition for its exceptional engineering and avant-garde designs. Throughout its storied history, Bugatti has produced a lineage of iconic vehicles that have redefined automotive standards and shattered speed records.

At the heart of every Bugatti lies a relentless pursuit of performance perfection. Take, for instance, the Bugatti Chiron, the marque’s latest masterpiece. Boasting an 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16

engine generating a mind-boggling 1,500 horsepower, the Chiron accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 2.3 seconds, reaching a top speed of over 260 mph. Such staggering performance figures not only demonstrate Bugatti’s engineering prowess but also exemplify its uncompromising commitment to pushing the boundaries of automotive excellence.

Beyond its awe-inspiring performance, what truly sets Bugatti apart is its unwavering dedication to craftsmanship and attention to detail. Each Bugatti is meticulously handcrafted at the marque’s state-of-the-art facility in Molsheim, France, where skilled artisans painstakingly assemble every component with precision and care. From the sumptuous leather upholstery to the intricate carbon fiber accents, no expense is spared in ensuring that every Bugatti exudes an air of luxury and refinement that is simply unparalleled.

Bugatti’s relentless pursuit of innovation is exemplified by its relentless quest to integrate cutting-edge technology into its vehicles. The Bugatti Veyron

for example, introduced groundbreaking features such as a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and an advanced allwheel-drive system, setting new benchmarks for performance and handling in the hypercar segment. Similarly, the Chiron incorporates revolutionary technologies such as adaptive aerodynamics and active suspension systems, further enhancing its dynamic capabilities and driving experience.

As with any luxury product, exclusivity plays a pivotal role in Bugatti’s allure. With production numbers limited to a select few, owning a Bugatti is not merely a transaction but a statement of unparalleled prestige and sophistication. Each Bugatti is a masterpiece in its own right, meticulously crafted to cater to the discerning tastes of a privileged few who demand nothing but the best.

Bugatti represents the epitome of automotive luxury, combining unrivaled performance, exquisite craftsmanship, and timeless design to create a driving experience like no other. With a legacy steeped in excellence.

got jokes?

A woman’s husband dies. He had $20,000 to his name.

After everything is done at the funeral home and cemetery, she tells her closest friend that there is no money left.

The friend says, “How can that be? You told me he had $20,000 a few days before he died. How could you be broke?”

The widow says, “Well, the funeral cost me $6,500. And of course, I had to make the obligatory donation for the church and the organist and all. That was $500 and I spent another $500 for the wake, food and drinks, you know. The rest went for the memorial stone.”

The friend says, “$12,500 for the memorial stone? My God, how big was it?”

The widow says, “Three carats.”

A man and his wife, now in their 60’s, were celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary. On their special day a good fairy came to them and said that because they had been such a devoted couple she would grant each of them a very special wish.

The wife wished for a trip around the world with her husband.

Whoosh! Immediately she had airline/cruise tickets in her hands.

The man wished for a female companion 30 years younger...

Whoosh...immediately he turned ninety!!!

Gotta love that fairy!

Whoosh...immediately he turned ninety!!!

Gotta love that fairy!

A man in his 40’s bought a new BMW and was out on the Interstate for a nice evening drive. The top was down, the breeze was blowing through what was left of his hair, and he decided to open her up. As the needle jumped up to 80 mph, he suddenly saw flashing red and blue lights behind him. “There’s no way they can catch a BMW,” he thought to himself and opened her up further. The needle hit 90, 100. Then the reality of the situation hit him. “What in hell am I doing?” he thought and pulled over. The cop came up to him, took his license without a word, and examined it and the car. “It’s been a long day, this is the end of my shift, it’s Friday the 13th, and I don’t want to do any paperwork. If you can give me an excuse for your driving that I haven’t heard before, you can go.” The guy thinks for a second and says, “Last week my wife ran off with a cop. I was afraid you were trying to give her back.” “Have a nice weekend,” said the officer.

I told my computer I needed a break, and now it won’t stop sending me vacation ads!

I told my wife she was drawing her eyebrows too high. She looked surprised.

Why do men like smart women? Opposites attract.

I asked my date to meet me at the gym but she never showed up. I guess the two of us aren’t going to work out.

If you donate a kidney, everybody loves you and you’re a total hero. But try donating five kidneys and suddenly everyone is yelling and the police get called.

A man walks into a magic forest and tries to cut down a talking tree. “You can’t cut me down,” the tree complains. “I’m a talking tree!”

The man responds, “You may be a talking tree, but you will dialogue.”

A doctor walks into a room with a dying patient and tells him, “I’m sorry, but you only have ten left.”

The patient asks him, “Ten what, Doc? Hours? Days? Weeks?” The doctor calmly looks at him and says, “Nine.”

Just look at that couple down the road,” a wife told her husband. “He keeps holding her hand, kissing her, holding the door for her. Why can’t you do that?” “Are you insane?” he responded. “I barely know the woman!”
