Rosh Hashanah occurs 163 days after the first day of Passover. In terms of the Gregorian the earliest date on which Rosh Hashanah can fall is September 5, as happened in 1899 and will happen again in 2013. The latest date that Rosh Hashanah can occur relative to the Gregorian dates is October 5, as happened in 1967 and will happen again in 2043. After 2089, the differences between the Hebrew calendar and the Gregorian calendar will result in Rosh Hashanah falling no earlier than September 6, This time is used by Atlanta music man Lord Hector Diono for reflection and self evaluation.
Hector, whose legal name is Lord Michael A. Chambers Rosenthorn a Messianic Hebrew is a second generation Hebrew grandchild who admits that he is more spiritual than religious and confesses to be the worse Jew you can encounter with respect to the religious laws that govern Jewish people Hector says he doesn’t speak much Hebrew anymore but says when he is made angry he speaks his grandmother’s tribal dialect, an ancient dead language referred to as Hehbraun.
Lord Hector seeks occasional private counsel at the Temple on Peachtree Street in Atlanta Georgia, his Rabbi is Alvin Sugarman. Hector’s Grandmother on his mother’s side was West Indian and passed away before the entertainer was born making Hector’s mother an orphan where she was raised in an orphanage in Washington D.C. called Junior Village [http://www.loc.gov/pictures/item/2003654379/]
Hector’s mother was only eight years old at the time, his Grandfather on his mother’s side fled the United States and retreated back to Israel before his mother was born for fear of racial reprise for mixing the two races.
”I am who I am, I seldom give regard to my bloodline cause to me at the end of the day I still gotta be responsible for myself and brethren, and my tactics to keep my brethren in line don’t always line up with my creator or his laws”.
Although the Jewish calendar is based on the lunar cycle, so that the first day of each month originally began with the first sighting of a new moon, since the fourth century it has been arranged so that Rosh Hashanah never falls on a Wednesday, Friday, or Sunday.
The Torah defines Rosh Hashanah as a one-day celebration, and since days in the Hebrew calendar begin at sundown, the beginning of Rosh Hashanah is at sundown at the end of 29 Elul. The rules of the Hebrew calendar are designed such that the first day of Rosh Hashanah will never occur on the first, fourth, or sixth day of the Jewish Week (i.e., Sunday, Wednesday, or Friday). Since the time of the destruction of the Second Temple of Jerusalem in 70 CE and the time of Rabban Yohanan ben Zakkai, normative Jewish law appears to be that Rosh Hashanah is to be celebrated for two days, due to the difficulty of determining the date of the New Moon Nonetheless, there is some evidence that Rosh Hashanah was celebrated on a single day in Palestine as late as the thirteenth century CE Orthodox and Conservative Judaism now generally observe Rosh Hashanah for the first two days of Tishrei, even in Israel where all other Jewish holidays dated from the new moon last only one day.
The two days of Rosh Hashanah are said to constitute "Yoma Arichtah" (Aramaic: "one long day"). In Reform Judaism, some communities observe only the first day of Rosh Hashanah, while others observe two days. Karaite Jews, who do not recognize Rabbinic Jewish oral law and rely on their own understanding of the Torah, observe only one day on the first of Tishrei, since the second day is not mentioned in the Written Torah. We at Hood watch Media wish the world a Happy and safe new year Shana Tova.

Frail,frightened and facing certain death is what was described regarding a neighborhood find according to an associate close to the Atlanta rapper/musician Lord Hector Diono whose also my boss. it's no secret that Hector never so much as check his mailbox without a firearm in his hand so imagine his surprise when an annoying sound outside his home studio in Decatur,Georgia kept finding it's way through his headphones on Thursday morning August 30. In traditional fashion Hector reportedly stepped outside to investigate the noise with a loaded handgun in his hand as his neighbors looked on in laughter to find the big bad threat to his paranoid being was a one pound kitten.
I found it hard to believe so I called our CEO myself and asked him to send me a photo because I know Lord Hector is allergic to cats and pet dander. He sent me the photo and admitted despite being allergic to cats he saved the stray kitten this morning after being disturbed by the feline's constant hunger cries outside his home studio during his morning cup of coffee. The kitten has been fed, bathed in Dawn dish washing liquid according to Hector, and has been named "Chico". It's not yet clear on when Hector will release the kitten to the proper authorities as this animal can upset Hector's personal wellness balance. On a personal note; Hector, whose responsible for creating, as well as the daily operations of the urban fashion online store "theiconshop.net" and music hits on iTunes,Rhapsody,and music releases around the world such as "Scarecrow" (The Final Chapter) ,30K, and "Mr. Predator" and I have known each other for eight years now and I know he might try to keep the animal simply because he was raised around cats thanks to his estranged mother and sister. I will try to keep you posted on this if he cares to keep me informed good luck Chico, and good luck Hector.
[UPDATE] Chico's a Girl!!!!! View recent pics of "Chicoleah Suelottie Diono™" Here

Imagine the look on the faces of the revelers at a 70s hip hop block party, if they knew how much money the genre they created was worth. They wouldn't believe that their culture was worth billions.
Rappers today, have lots of money. In the early days of the rap boom, hip hop stars invested in items that enhanced their image. Nice cars, expensive homes, jewelery. Now rappers are worth more, and they're portfolio is diversifying in strange directions.
E-40 owns a franchise of the Fat Burger chain. Big Boi from Outkast owns a pitbull dog breeding company. Jermaine Dupri owns a brand of vodka. 50 cent owns 10% of Glaceau, makers of Vitamin Water. Jay-Z is a co-owner of the New Jersey Nets. Nelly is part-owner of the Charlotte Bobcats.
It's common to see rappers making big investments, but I was surprised, when I read that Cash Money millionaires are investing in gas and oil.
"Baby, the Birdman" Bryan Williams is previously known for such lyrics as:
"can't pay my rent cuz all my money's spent."
Now along with his brother, they've founded an energy firm: Bronald Oil & Gas.
Rappers in new industries changes the stakes for business. You might be a successful energy executive, but if you cannot rhyme "stunna" with "summa" you will not succeed.Imagine the look on the faces of the revelers at a 70s hip hop block party, if they... more
Lots of legitimate rappers fight for the title of the best rapper alive. Historically Jay-Z has held the title, but Lil Wayne is now fighting for that claim. I, however, am thoroughly unconcerned with who is the best rapper alive (that title will always go to Old Dirty Bastard in my mind.) I'm more interested in who holds the definitive title of worst rapper alive.
YouTube searches reveal that hundreds of people are eligible to hold this title.
Is the worst rapper alive MC 'raps about Snakes on a Plane'?
Is the worst rapper alive MC 'but you know what'?
Is the worst rapper alive MC 'there's no way you're going to sit through this whole video?'
Is it the worst rapper alive MC 'I'm the best man, I did it?'
Or is the worst rapper alive MC 'I'm bad, but I'm also seven and really cute?'
You decide, who is the worst rapper alive? Let me know in the comments below.

Who's got a sexy gray zip-up pullover, a turtleneck, and loves bobbing his head at a hip-hop show? Why, Russian prime minister Vladimir Putin! He even gets up on stage and promotes at least three of the pillars of hip hop: rap, graffiti and break-dancing, saying they promote a healthy lifestyle. "It is hard to imagine break dance being combined with alcohol or drugs."
As if it was just another chapter out of recent Russian history - the hip-hop event was called The Battle For Respect.
