“Patron–client networks Edit Patron–client networks are defined by fluid interactions. They produce crime groups that operate as smaller units within the overall network, and as such tend towards valuing significant others, familiarity of social and economic environments, or tradition. These networks are usually composed of: Hierarchies based on 'naturally' forming family, social and cultural traditions; 'Tight-knit' focus of activity/labor; Fraternal or nepotistic value systems; Personalized activity; including family rivalries, territorial disputes, recruitment and training of family members, etc.; Entrenched belief systems, reliance of tradition (including religion, family values, cultural expectations, class politics, gender roles, etc.); and, Communication and rule enforcement mechanisms dependent on organizational structure, social etiquette, history of criminal involvement, and collective decision-making. Bureaucratic/corporate operations Edit Bureaucratic/corporate organized crime groups are defined by the general rigidity of their internal structures. They focus more on how the operations works, succeeds, sustains itself or avoids retribution, they are generally typified by: A complex authority structure; An extensive division of labor between classes within the organization; Meritocratic (as opposed to cultural or social attributes); Responsibilities carried out in an impersonal manner; Extensive written rules/regulations (as opposed to cultural praxis dictating action); and, 'Top-down' communication and rule enforcement mechanisms. However, this model of operation has some flaws: The 'top-down' communication strategy is susceptible to interception, more so further down the hierarchy being communicated to; Maintaining written records jeopardizes the security of the organization and relies on increased security measures; Infiltration at lower levels in the hierarchy can jeopardize the entire organization (a 'house of cards' effect); and, Death, injury, incarceration or internal power struggles dramatically heighten the insecurity of operations. While bureaucratic operations emphasize business processes and strongly authoritarian hierarchies, these are based on enforcing power relationships rather than an overlying aim of protectionism, sustainability or growth.” “Model type Environment Group Processes Impacts National Historical or cultural basis Family or hierarchy Secrecy/bonds.

A Mosaic of CourageI remember September 11, 2001, like it was yesterday. I remember exactly where I was when I turned on the television to watch the morning news anchors on ABC7 in Manhattan. They were telling us that we were indeed under a terrorist attack and that we should get out of Manhattan if we could. Things were happening so rapidly that even as the news anchors issued those dire words, their instructions became obsolete as all traffic in and out of The City came to a grinding halt. Not knowing what to do, I joined the thousands of workers being evacuated from high rise office buildings all over the city and got swept up into the teeming masses of people flooding the streets of Midtown, Uptown and Downtown. The East Side and the West Side. From Battery Park to Washington Heights. My friend Cheryl Rogers later told me that she had walked from her office in Chelsea all the way to the Brooklyn Bridge and crossed over on foot to get home to her cat Cookie. In the days that followed, we New Yorkers, like the rest of the world remained inside, glued to the television. I watched the local News One a lot those first few days, and ABC7, because they were giving us the local, inside scoop. And we needed practical information – like where to go to get food and water. And where people could go to get information on the missing and the dead. On that day, Liz Brunner sat at the anchor desk at ABC-TV, WCVB NewsCenter 5 in Boston, MA - that city's top-rated newscast. Liz was the voice of reason, calm and a face that Bostonians all knew they could trust to tell them what was happening. The facts. 12 years later, on April 15, 2013, she would assume the seat at the anchor desk again, as this time terror visited the city of Boston directly with the Boston Marathon Bombing, and the chase for the bombers that ensued in the following days. When she talks about both events, her journalistic resolve melts as her eyes soften. The humanity of the person shines through. It was that tangible humanity that drew viewers to her during her 28-year career in front of the camera. It is that humanity that draws people to her today in her role of executive communications coach for people looking to raise their lives and their careers to the next level of success, or is it greatness?To sit in the anchor desk with integrity and hold the emotions and expectations of a city or a nation is not easy work. It is the work of the courageous. Courage is a word that comes up often in my conversation with Liz because it is a guiding principle of her life and the many lives she has lived: reporter and anchor, teacher, professional singer, and now entrepreneur. That courageousness has come to her from her ancestors, some who crossed over on the Mayflower and some who lived on the distant continent of India. Both meet in her, creating a legacy that is both improbable and at the same time wholly American. Her thoughts on the rich mosaic of her life? They are found in her latest book Dare to Own You. Every leap of faith in your life takes tremendous courage. Every new chapter that you write for yourself requires you not to be afraid. Vulnerability is an earned gift that you bestow to others, not something to be frivolously given away.

You're listening to Artbeat Radio, a program of Able ARTS Work. Randi: Welcome back to Artbeat Radio! Brian: Today we have a special guest and his name is Johnny Rico. Johnny is a Bruno Mars impersonator Randi and Brian: Hope you enjoy! Johnny: My name is Johnny Rico, also known as the Bruno Mars impersonator or Bruno Mars look alike I've been doing this for five years and since doing this I've been nonstop even during COVID. I mean that's pretty much it. I summed it up, I guess. Right now, you know, it's an ongoing thing and it's always impressing me how much and how far this thing is taking me so you know I'm very relaxed very blessed. Nancy: My name is Nancy. What is your favorite karaoke song? Johnny: You know, that's a good question and it's one that most really wouldn't think of and I don't really even know how to sing all of it but I like it. It's a song by the Blues travelers, Hook. *Sings portion of song* Johnny: And then it goes to that rapping part. that I don't really do but really do, but I like doing that in karaoke because it helps build confidence. Heidi: Okay, so this is Lisa and she had a question that we wrote out for you. Hold it up, Lisa. what is your favorite song of all time? Johnny: There's a song that I remember hearing when I was a kid and ever since then- yeah I hear it all the time and it's a song again most people wouldn't think of it it's called Groove is in the Heart. It's just an awesome song from beginning to end everything about that song is awesome. There it goes up and down. You can dance to it! It's funky. You can break dance. I'm a break dancer I used to break dance a lot. But it's Groove is in the Heart and I think most like most because of the baseline “Nana Nana Nana Nana Nana Nana Nana Nana Nana Nana Nana” so anyway that's a good funk song. Eric: Do you ever sing a song, “If I lose you Baby”? Which is also a Bruno Mars song. Johnny: *sings portion of the song* Johnny: I don't really do it because when I do events, most people want to party. So I've done that song twice and it's not a song that I do often, but the both times that I did it the girl cried. So, that that that was a touching moment, I guess. Eric: This seems like a cool job. Is there anything else you do? Johnny: Yeah, I actually work with a company called 1928 jewelry they're a company that's been around for a little over 50 years and I am the e-commerce director for them. So, you know, I sell fashion jewelry that is timeless. I like building websites, I like doing SEO that's -I'm a nerd... I'm a nerd. Brian: Hi, My name is Brian Corder. What songs do you like to sing? Johnny: You know, I'm going to be honest with you. When I first started doing this I didn't like any of his songs then I started learning about who he was. Before I became an impersonator, I started learning about who he was the history. Then I really started listening to the music and I started listening to the music. I started thinking “you know what, he's a good musician he's a good artist” I don't have one in particular that I like. I really like them all to be honest there's not one that stands out more than the other and it's kind of unfair too because I perform all the time so I could say 24 karat magic is my favorite one because I do that every single event but there's not one you know? I mean, if I could give you one maybe it might be “If I Knew” It's like one of the last tracks from The Unorthodox Jukebox and it's just him singing with his partner doing an acapella song. *Sings portion of the song* San Diego: OK, hello! So what is like to work as a professional impersonator? Johnny: It's not what most people think. I'll give you an example of it. To even look like Bruno Mars, It's hard to even go down the street because someone's going to be going to someone's going to say something. So there's good things and then there's kind of uncomfortable situations. So other than that again it's fun and that's it's just different it's very different Kassidy: She has one more question for you. San Diego: How old were you. when you started this job? Johnny: 32. At the age of the 32. Yeah, and and I also just started singing five years ago so when I started doing this, I started singing too, so it's still brand new to me. I'm still learning. San Diego: Another question for you. I am the biggest fan one of your songs. Johnny: Which one? San Diego: I really like the Uptown Funk. Johnny *Sings portion of song* You know something cool? these glasses that I'm wearing right now are from the the ones that he wears in the Uptown funk music video. The same ones. San Diego: Oh wow! you're very cool man! Johnny: Well, I appreciate it. I appreciate it thank you very much. And you know, you know, it makes it makes it fun because you're fun! It makes it fun because look, we're having fun, right? San Diego: I love your shirt by the way. Johnny: Hey, thank you thank you. Ricky Regal! That's a another brand that Bruno Mars has. He does clothing too so this is one of the shirts. Ricky Regal. Thank you! San Diego: You're welcome you're welcome! Kassidy: Alright, I'm going to read you the next question is from a student that couldn't be here today. Her name is Grace and she is wondering how did you get into this business? Johnny: Um very, very - I'll try to make it I'll try to make it short. For years I would be looking at- “you look like this guy, you look like this guy, you look like this guy” and then I didn't know and I didn't care who this guy was! Little did I know, it was Bruno Mars. I had a business during you know the last few years I would hear this, so I closed down my business and I was trying to think of another job to do and I'm driving down the street and I see a poster of Bruno Mars sitting like this and then as I saw that poster something hit me. I finally saw what other people saw. I looked exactly like this guy and I started learning about him and it took me about a month to get my first job. I got a wig, I got a shirt, the hat, glasses- and my first job was almost exactly five years ago. San Diego: Wow! Johnny: Yeah, and actually my first job was also on Bruno Mars's birthday, so I made it extra special. Kassidy: Oh! what his Bruno Mars birthday? Johnny: October 8. Yeah and I'm six months older than him, so he looks like me! Kassidy: That's crazy. Oh my goodness, awesome! Thank you! Alright, Sarah is up next. Sarah: I have a couple of questions for you. Do you relate to the songs you sing? Johnny: Yeah, I could. I could. And, I think that's what makes it even more fun because there's certain songs that he sings that I can relate to. I'll give you an example, there's a song, When I was Your Man *Sings portion of song* I can relate to it when I sing it. It kind of does give me chills because I'm thinking it also and it makes it better for the performance too because again I could relate to what he's saying. San Diego: I love that song! Johnny: Yeah! Yeah me too. San Diego: Do you know any impersonators, and if so, where do they perform? Johnny: Yes! I do know some of the best impersonators that are out there! We all have different types of jobs. I have, like for example, I know a girl who does- she like a Martha Stewart. So, she doesn't perform. She just does Martha Stewart stuff? I don't know. But then but then I have another friend who's like the number one Snoop dog look like and impersonator. Actually, he works with Snoop Dog. He's a stand in. He's a double. He does commercials sometimes. He is like the number one guy so I do know a few. A lot of them get really busy so it's really hard to communicate. San Diego: If you weren't impersonating, what would you do? Johnny: I love music. I love music. I love music! I put out this article from a newspaper or school news or schools paper this decade um I'm a natural entertainer I guess. I just- I can't sit still, so if I wasn't being impersonator, I would probably be a choreographer. San Diego: Who is your favorite celebrity? Johnny: My favorite celebrity? Yeah, my favorite celebrity. Well, you know what? I mean, I wouldn't say Michael Jackson that's- that passed away, but the only reason is because again I grew up with him and he was a magical guy. He knew how to control the crowd. You know? and the crowd, and the crowd loved him. So, if you ever watched like his big performances they get crazy. So, I would say Michael Jackson. Kassidy: Oh, alright. Awesome! Our next question comes from Julian. So his question is have you ever performed in Las Vegas? Johnny: Yes! Yeah. I've been able I've been able to perform in Las Vegas a few times and it's kind of scary because a lot of people, they think of Bruno Mars already right so when I go to Vegas and I walked the street it gets a little scary. Kassidy: Well that's pretty cool. He's been a lot too! What's your other question? What is your favorite Bruno Mars Song? Johnny: What is my favorite Bruno Mars song? What's your favorite Bruno Mars song? Do you like Uptown Funk? *Sings portion of song* I always finish with it because it's the best way to end the party. Kassidy: Our next question comes from Josh. Johnny: Yes Sir? San Diego: What are your favorite hobbies? Johnny: Oh my favorite hobbies... I like, I like collecting sunglasses you know? and it's also I've- I've always loved sunglasses, but now it's easier for me to find rare glasses and I have my own uh well my own ways of finding unique glasses out of private collector who collects and sells me certain pieces. He sold me these and again these are from the Uptown Funk, so this is my little nerdy thing. That's what I do collect! Kassidy: Okay, Thank you! On to our next interviewer, which is Stephanie. Stephanie: What is your favorite place you have performed before? Johnny: Oh, wow. I never thought of that one. You know what? Hawaii. Hawaii. I never went- I've never gone to Hawaii and I always saw videos of Hawaii. Then, in your mind you're like one day... one day. And that one day came and! Tt was straight out of a movie. Honestly, everything everything was beautiful. The thing is, I wish I could go back it's just very it's very hard to get gigs over there. San Diego:Who's your favorite pop star, and is it Justin Bieber? Johnny: Oh no, you know what? You know, again I would say, I would say- to the classic -I would say stick to Michael Jackson. I grew up with him. Michael, but if you want to stay living- San Diego: Justin Timberlake? Johnny: Okay, that's yeah. I mean like, you know, yeah I mean like-I- he's a good performer that's the thing. You know? That's why I like him. San Diego: Do you like Avril Lavigne? Johnny: Yeah, I like Avril Lavigne, but it's not like I'm putting it on the radio. I can listen to her music. San Diego: Liam is next. What's your favorite show? Johnny: My favorite TV show... uh it switches and uh I hope it doesn't sound creepy. It's Forensic Files. Yeah, I like I like learning about the scientific way that you know people go about solving crime. San Diego: Random one more question to ask. What do you do in your free time? Johnny: I have an 8 year old little man, so anytime I get, I'm with him. San Diego. What is that another impersonator that you've met that's your favorite? Johnny: I've gotten to hang with a Justin Timberlake look alike and also Snoop and the funny thing is that when I'm when I'm hanging out with them a lot of people think that they're seeing famous people having lunch because they- because it could happen! It could happen, you know? Kassidy: I have one more question from a student that also could not be here today. Her name is Renee, and she is wondering -she saw on your website that you do wedding receptions -and she's wondering how many have you done? Johnny: Oh, oh a lot! A lot. I would say like- I would say like 40% maybe 40% are wedding receptions and a lot of the people who do the weddings -I have a rule this -this is how much I get booked- Don't reach out to me if you're waiting two years down the line. Because, because I have people who reach out to me who want to book me two years down the line. I'm like, I don't even know if I'm gonna be alive! So I think if it's within 6 to 8 months yeah. But... yeah. It's a lot. It's a lot. Kassidy: Well, those are all the questions that we have for you! Johnny: Those are really good questions. Those are really good questions, and I thank you for the questions! Kassidy: Yeah, students all came up with their own questions themselves and then they organized the order of how they wanted to ask them. Sarah is just raising her hand real quick. San Diego: what is your son's favorite Bruno Mars song? Johnny: Oh, that's a good one. He likes, he likes Uptown Funk. San Diego: Nice! Johnny: He likes Uptown Funk. Yeah, I remember when I started doing this he was like 3 or 4 and his grandma dressed him up like he was in the Uptown Funk video. He had a little mic and he asked me to put on the music. I put on the music and he was performing. So, and even right now, he's eight years old now and he still likes to! The funny thing sometimes is when we're driving, he wants me to put it on and I always laugh like “I hear it all the time can we switch it to another song?” but - or sometimes I'll just sing it to him. Yeah, but he likes Uptown Funk San Diego: My favorite Bruno Mars song is Grenade. Johnny: Grenade? Ooh, that's good. You know what when I first started singing I would always say- I would always I couldn't sing that I could sing that song because the song that- he sings it so high. Now I can sing it but no one requests it. You want to sing a little bit? San Diego: Yes please Johnny: *Sings portion of song* *cheering* Johnny: I'm glad I got to sing it cause I don't sing it all. Nobody requests that song! Heidi: If somebody wanted to hire you, What's the best place that they can reach out to you? Johnny: My website brunomarsimpersonator.com Heidi: I wanted to say thank you so much for coming we really appreciate it! Johnny: No not a problem. Not a problem! Again, I honestly -I'm very thankful to be able to do this you know I wish that I could do more of these types of videos you know so one video can lead to like many more. Again, I thank you for that and if I could if I could leave you guys with something you don't mind? Alrigh,t so you know I do have a favorite song that I wish I could perform and sometimes I request if they want it but they never say they want it. I love this one so this is this is for you guys. It was nice to meet you guys first of all. Every single one. Thanks for your questions and you guys have a friend in me now so you know I'm here, and here's a little song for you. *Sings a portion of Count on Me by Bruno Mars* Kassidy: Thank you so much! Johnny: You're welcome! I hope you guys have a good day. *Outro music by Artbeat Radio staff* We hope you enjoyed this episode of Artbeat Radio. For more information, please go to our website.

Charlotte transportation leaders held a meeting Wednesday night to discuss a proposal to add more tolls to Interstate 77, stretching from Uptown to the South Carolina border. The Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization said the proposal would add two express lanes in each direction from I-277 to I-485. Cintra, the company behind the existing tolls on I-77, sent an unsolicited proposal to North Carolina and Charlotte transportation officials earlier this year. NCDOT said any tolls projects in North Carolina must be requested and approved by the local planning organization, per state law.

Around 1:30 a.m., someone started shooting into the home where a 15-year-old, 5-year-old, and 3-year-old were sleeping along with two others. The family told WCNC Charlotte they now plan to leave the home. They had been renting for the past few months. From top to bottom, there were at least 20 visible bullet holes visible in the home off of Coy Court. Several vehicles were damaged as well.

Join us or find out more at https://patreon.com/workingclasshistory Anti-Racist Action (ARA) started in Minneapolis and is a predecessor to the crews often now called antifa. ARA started in 1987 with a multiracial group of teenage skinheads who fought the rising white power movement. It grew into a network of groups in at least 120 towns and cities across the US and Canada. ARA's first principle was: “We go where they go. Never let the Nazis have the streets.” They eventually applied that not only to white power organising, but to homophobic and anti-abortion organizing, and to police violence, which they saw as all connected. Producer and host Anna Stitt tells the story of the group in Minneapolis through vivid first-person accounts, archival audio, and music from the era. It starts under the railroad tracks in Uptown, Minneapolis and traces a movement that continues to shape the US to this day.

Panthers interim head coach Steve Wilks says the next 12 weeks are about doing everything he can to get the team back on track after a disappointing 1-4 start to the season. During his first news conference as the team's head coach, Wilks said he's confident Carolina has the opportunity to turn things around starting this week against the Los Angeles Rams. "One thing I do know, for sure, they're not canceling our season," Wilks said. "We've got to do a great job of coming together collectively and finding a way to turn this thing around quickly."

Let's connect the dots. Decades ago, Brooklyn was a thriving African-American neighborhood in Uptown's Second Ward. It was a town within a town with 1,500 homes, shops, restaurants and churches. But in the '60s and '70s, it was all bulldozed in the name of development and replaced by government buildings and Marshall Park. In recent years, a new plan slowly gained traction for a newly reimagined Brooklyn Village. Ditching the current buildings and park and replacing it with 1,200 apartments and condos of all price points. You can stream WCNC Charlotte on Roku and Amazon Fire TV, just download the free app. The multi-year, multi-million dollar Brooklyn Village community is set to be smack in the heart of Uptown.
