Artist Jean-Michel Basquiat has left behind undiscovered work.

The artist who painted about race issues with Andy Worhol. The provacative Grafitti Artist turned Painter commands $26 million per piece now a days. His ex-girlfriend Alexis Adler claims he painted on her apartment walls and doors in the 1970s. Adler now wants to include the works in a book. According to her, the world deserves to see his art, which includes a radiator marked with the word “milk,” a door painting called “Famous Negro Athletes” and featuring the words “Olive Oyl.” I guess art never dies, because now Basquiat can once again speak to us, even from the dead. This is what makes art so special, it trancends time & space. A 1996 film about his life, titled “Basquiat,” starred Jeffrey Wright and garnered critical acclaim. By Lucky ShakesSpear

ith his angular face and hooded eyes, Andrew Duncan is a federal prosecutor right out of Central Casting. But his message on the opening day of the trial of an alleged cybercriminal yesterday was anything but old fashioned. “Television and the movies have always portrayed organized criminal enterprises in a certain way,” he says — mafia hoodlums plotting in a smoky backroom, “Vinnie the Bull” guarding the door. Things have changed. “Flash forward to the 21st century,” he says, raising his voice and shouting out the domain name of a website, www.Carder.su. He pauses between each of the W’s so they ring like gunshots through the courtroom. Until it closed two years ago, Carder.su was an online cybercrime forum used by some 7,900 fraudsters around the world. It was essentially a criminal eBay. Carefully screened “vendors” sold a wealth of products: counterfeiting gear, stolen identify information, skimmed or stolen credit card magstripe data, hacker tools, botnets for rent, and online banking credentials. Forum administrations and moderators kept the system purring, and ordinary members could post reviews of the products they’d bought. The Secret Service’s Nevada licenses were particularly good, since they were secretly made by the Nevada DMV. The site was allegedly headed by a Russian named Roman Zolotarev, and it boasted a slew of high-end vendors and sophisticated moderators. None of them are in this courtroom. The sole defendant at this trial, which began yesterday, is a rank-and-file credit card scammer who signed up at Carder.su when he was 16 years old, and made the mistake of dealing with an undercover Secret Service agent a year later. Now 22, David Ray Camez is the first cybercrime defendant in the country to go to trial on federal racketeering charges, instead of computer or credit card fraud statutes. He’s charged with conspiracy to violate RICO and with the separate charge of violating RICO, and faces a 20-year sentence. The key question facing the jurors isn’t whether Camez was a crook — he’s already serving a state prison term for forgery. It’s whether the website he did business on was an organized criminal enterprise comparable, as a legal matter, to the Mafia or a Los Angeles street gang. Enacted in 1970 to help the FBI crack down on the mafia, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act lets the feds hold every member of a criminal organization individually responsible for the actions of the group as a whole. If it applies here, then Camez will be legally culpable for every crime committed by all 7,800 users of Carder.su, which the government estimates caused $50.5 million in consumer losses. A conviction under that theory would give the U.S. a powerful new legal weapon as it takes on a growing number of underground criminal forums dealing in everything from weapons to drugs to more cybercrime. Underscoring the importance of the case to the government, the Justice Department has deployed a lawyer from the Organized Crime and Gang Section in Washington to assist local prosecutors Duncan and Kimberly Frayn, and they’ve flown in one of the FBI’s top cyber cops, J. Keith Mularski, to appear as the first witness, testifying as an expert on the carder forums. Prosecutors plan to present 1,500 exhibits, and up to 43 witnesses, in a trial scheduled to last at least three weeks. Ten other defendants have already pleaded guilty. But Camez is stubborn, says his lawyer, Chris Rasmussen. “Other racketeering cases, there’s a boss who’s telling you what to do,” Rasmussen told WIRED on the eve of trial. “Nobody can tell David what to do. He’s really adamant that he’s not into racketeering.”

Carder.su vendor called Kartoon. The Secret Service raided him a second time and seized more evidence. Camez was charged and convicted locally, and is now serving a seven year state prison term in Arizona. The U.S. pulled him out of state custody to put him on trial here in Las Vegas. Sitting at the defense table in a light-blue button down and a prison buzz-cut, Camez seems a poor test subject for a bold new cybercrime prosecution method. But he’s the best the government has. Low-level crooks like Camez account for about half the defendants charged in Open Market, but comprise 22 of the 28 who’ve been identified and arrested. The more valuable targets are the 27 Carder.su vendors charged with selling criminal goods and services alongside Celtic. But of these, eight are known only by their online nicknames, and 13 others have been identified but live in foreign jurisdictions like Ukraine, Morocco and Nigeria. Only the six unlucky enough to be based in the United States have been arrested. Zolotarev, the ringleader, is now believed to be running a Carder.su successor forum. Reached over ICQ, the administrator of that forum declined to comment. “Forum not for journalist,” he wrote. “Don’t want be popular.” In his opening statement, Duncan emphasizes the interdependencies of the forum, and reads from chat logs in which Camez — who went by “Bad Guy” and “Doctorsex” — discussed the deals he struck with various vendors. He bought stolen magstripe data from one Carder.su source, paid another vendor to turn it into counterfeit credit cards, and, of course, purchased fake ID from Adams, who is now with DHS’s Homeland Security Investigations. Additionally, Camez allegedly dealt directly with Zolotarev to use Carder.su’s escrow service, which helps keep vendors and customers honest by holding the money while a deal goes through. Duncan shows jurors a screenshot of black-themed Carder.su login page. “This black screen and what’s behind it is the new place and the new face of organized crime,” he says. “This black screen is the Vinnie the Bull, keeping you out.” When Duncan wraps up, Rasmussen stands to deliver his opening statement. “Carder.su is a website,” Rasmussen says simply. “There’s no membership… They talk about ‘Vinnie the Bull’ at the door? There’s nobody at the door.” The defense’s argument is that Carder.su is more like Craigslist than the mafia; people meet and talk and, yes, make criminal deals by the boatload, but nobody is in charge. There’s no boss of all bosses getting a piece of the action. Nobody’s paying tribute. There’s no organization, and, hence, no RICO violation. He also slams the government for its undercover tactics, comparing Operation Open Market to the ATF’s Fast and Furious operation. Just as Fast and Furious put guns in the hands of smugglers, Open Market “sent government identification made by the DMV” to criminals around the world, most of which have not been recovered. Rasmussen suggests that the government should have taken a different course altogether when a 17-year-old Camez first approached Adams looking for a fake driver’s license. “Did Special Agent Adams contact David’s mother say, ‘Hey, your kid’s messing around on a website he shouldn’t be’? No.” The first day of the trial closed with the FBI’s Mularski, who, until 2008, ran an undercover cybercrime forum called Dark Market under the moniker “Master Splyntr.” He testified that the carder forums have no lawful purpose. “On the carding forums you can obtain really anything you need to commit cybercrime,” he said. “There’s no legitimate activity that occurs on them.”

Michael Gerard "Mike" Tyson (born June 30, 1966) is an American retired professional boxer. Tyson is a former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world and holds the record as the youngest boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF heavyweight titles at 20 years, 4 months, and 22 days old. Tyson won his first 19 professional bouts by knockout, 12 of them in the first round. He won the WBC title in 1986 after defeating Trevor Berbick by a TKO in the second round. In 1987, Tyson added the WBA and IBF titles after defeating James Smith and Tony Tucker. He was the first heavyweight boxer to simultaneously hold the WBA, WBC and IBF titles, and the only heavyweight to successively unify them. In 1988, Tyson became the lineal champion when he knocked out Michael Spinks after 91 seconds. Tyson successfully defended the world heavyweight championship nine times, including victories over Larry Holmes and Frank Bruno. In 1990, he lost his titles to underdog James "Buster" Douglas, by a knockout in round 10. Attempting to regain the titles, he defeated Donovan Ruddock twice in 1991, but he pulled out of a fight with undisputed heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield due to injury. In 1992, Tyson was convicted of raping Desiree Washington and sentenced to six years in prison but was released after serving three years. After his release, he engaged in a series of comeback fights. In 1996, he won the WBC and WBA titles after defeating Frank Bruno and Bruce Seldon by knockout. After being stripped of the WBC title, Tyson lost his WBA crown to Evander Holyfield in November 1996 by an 11th round TKO. Their 1997 rematch ended when Tyson was disqualified for biting Holyfield's ear. In 2002, he fought for the world heavyweight title at the age of 35, losing by knockout to Lennox Lewis. He retired from professional boxing in 2006, after being knocked out in consecutive matches against Danny Williams and Kevin McBride. Tyson declared bankruptcy in 2003, despite having received over US$30 million for several of his fights and $300 million during his career. Tyson was well known for his ferocious and intimidating boxing style as well as his controversial behavior inside and outside the ring. Tyson is considered one of the best heavyweights of all time.[3] He was ranked No. 16 on The Ring's list of 100 greatest punchers of all time.[4] and No. 1 in the ESPN.com list of "The hardest hitters in heavyweight history".[5] He has been inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame and the World Boxing Hall of Fame.

NADEGE BROWN INTERVIEW: 1. What is your name and where are you from? My name is Nadège Brown and I am currently from Queens Ny. I was born in Houston TX and was raised there until The age of 6 where I moved to Saintes France. I lived in France for eight years until I turned 14 and came back to the States. I lived and attended high school in Danbury Connecticut until I moved to NYC to Attend College at the Fashion Institute of Technology. I have since resided in NYC and have lived here 8 years. 2. How did you get started in fashion? I was introduced into fashion at a very young age. My mother and grandmother would sew garments for my sister and I growing up, since We had limited income and it was a way to save money. Living in France increased my curiosity in the Fashion Industry since I was made aware of Classic French style and detail. When I was 13 a woman asked me what I liked and I replied; textiles, fashion, and traveling. This question was a crucial turning point in my life as she then said to me, "You want to be an International Buyer!" I then realized that I would pursue a business degree in Fashion at FIT, to expand my knowledge while pursuing my dreams. I have also from an early age had a passion for helping people in need. Given my background and future goals, I intend on using my business to jump start my philanthropic career and give back to charity. 3. Who do you admire in the fashion industry and what about them can you incorporate into your brand? Growing up in France my inspiration was Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier, Yves St Laurent and Christian Lacroix. These Designers were revered all around France, and are pillars of Modern French Design. They have helped me develop an eye for detail and construction, as well as inspired me in my own collections for SDS Swim. I strive to incorporate a classy, sensual approach on sexy swim attire that can be attributed to my French background. 4. What makes your brand unique? We at SDS swim pay attention to the slightest in details, and focus in on ways to flatter a woman's body in every shape or size. We are also one of the only swimwear brands left in NYC that manufactures straight out of the world famous Garment District in Manhattan. We support eco- friendly causes and businesses, and effectively diminish our carbon footprint where applicable. We are 100% manufactured in the U.S.A, and are extremely determined to create and maintain jobs in America. We use only the finest in materials and craftsmanship which makes each piece unique. SDS swim also takes 3% of proceeds to donate to a number of charities that support a variety of causes. 5. Does music influence your designs? Music has a major influence on my garments directly and indirectly. I have celebrity muses that inspire the concepts for certain garments, who have also become marketing vessels for the line. Bold, edgy beats are also a form of inspiration since Music is used to evoke feelings in art. I want people to see my swimwear, and gain a depiction of what theme or look I am directing through the use of music. 6. Do cultural trends inspire your creative juices?


Cultural trends are crucial for sales, since they tell a story and represent a lifestyle. I pay particular attention to trends and color forecasts in order to remain competitive against others. We also work around popular ideas and themes for photo shoots and marketing strategies in order to appeal to varying demographics among our consumers. 7. What Fashion House do you want to emulate in some ways? I would like to emulate a Fashion House such as Armani, in terms of functionality. I respect that they have a Haute Couture presence as well as for their lower division Ready to Wear collections. Armani Exchange for example, is able to incorporate swimwear and other trendy items while maintaining their umbrella under Armani Prive. I feel as though I can start my company in a niche market, and grow to expand/excel in the fashion industry. 8. Where have you done fashion shows? I had my first two fashion shows in NYC. The first was a preview Fashion Show I had poolside at The Roomate Grace Hotel in Times Square. The second event was a follow up showcasing the full 2013 collection at Skyroom in Times Square. We were able to coordinate these fabulous events in NYC with the best views and ambience we could possibly ask for. as well where the background view of NYC couldn't make the ambiance better. we Were also part of The Uptown fashion Show NYC, which was a Wonderful event that took place during MBFW S/S '14 in order to showcase emerging NYC designers. 9. Where can people purchase your line? Our customers can purchase Sirènes De Soleil on our website at www.sirenesdesoleil.com / www.sdsswim.com Pre-order sdsswim@ gmil.com as well as on shakespeardark.com and soon to be available at retailers in major U.S cities. 10. What spectacular things should we expect in the next decade from Nadege Brown & her product line? Once my company takes off, I have major plans to launch a charity through my business. I would like to focus on self-esteem workshops and bringing awareness to environmental causes. I would also like to expand my fashion line into clothing for women, men, and children I also intend on keeping all manufacturing in the U.S. As well as diminishing our carbon footprint by using as many eco-friendly products where applicable. We are working on a few side projects that might be made available to the public very soon. One of which is a reality T.V. Show disposing my lifestyle and how to actually make it in America, through networking and marketing myself and the brand. It is an exciting opportunity since we will be showing what happens behind closed doors. Ambition, Faith and believing in yourself makes all the difference in the world!
