“A Drug Kingpin and His Racket, The Untold Story of Freeway Rick Ross"- .@VICE Sports

by. Nate James (VICE)
VICE Sports contributor Tal Pinchevsky writes: “Before he was moving cocaine by the ton across the United States. Before he was making as much as $2 million on a good day. Before the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department started a corrupt task force named after him. Before all of that, "Freeway" Rick Ross was Ricky Donnell Ross, a small, wiry kid just trying to get out of South Central. And it wasn't drug dealing that was going to help him do that. It was tennis.”

Manitoba: Earth's New Fashion Capital? Style Satellites Zero In On Canadian Prairie. 



It's the result of a collaboration between online clothier Betabrand and space startup Planet Labs to create a new collection of garments with orbital inspiration.  


The folks at Planet Labs design, build, and operate microsatellites they call “Doves." Dozens of these Doves are orbiting the Earth at this very moment, capturing vivid images from around the world.
