About GIVĒON

GIVĒON has made himself one of music’s brightest stars by bringing vivid color, depth, and soul to songs that capture the intensity of life’s twists and turns. After coming to fame via Drake’s “Chicago Freestyle,” the CA native became a force in his own right. GIVĒON had a whirlwind 2020 after releasing his Platinum-certified “Like I Want You” (230 million cross-platform streams in the US). He kept the momentum with “Heartbreak Anniversary,” a gauzy ballad that peaked at #16 on the Billboard Hot 100, garnered over 684 million streams, and earned 2X Platinum status. In March 2020, GIVĒON’s debut EP, Take Time, confirmed his evocative songwriting prowess and would be nominated for Best R&B Album at the 2021 Grammys. His fall When It’s All Said and Done EP further explored the peaks and valleys of love and, when re-packaged with its predecessor in 2021, hit #5 on the Billboard 200. After being nominated for a 2020 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding New Artist, he won BET’s 2021 Best New Artist, and his audience is growing—to the tune of over 1.7 billion streams globally. He even hit #1 on the Hot 100 in March on Justin Bieber’s “Peaches.” That hit helped him win award for Best Pop Song at the 2021 MTV VMA‘s where he was nominated for seven awards including Best New Artist, Best R&B and Best Pop Song. Drake then invited GIVĒON back into his world, this time for a sizzling verse on Certified Lover Boy’s “In the Bible” with Lil Durk—one of a guaranteed run of thrilling collabs to come. And at his festival debut, Lollapalooza 2021, he found a sea of voices who knew his lyrics. But success has never really been a goal— GIVĒON just wants to bear his soul.

How Much is an Olympic Medal Worth?

This year, one of the world’s largest precious metals wholesale trading firms, Dillon Gage Metals, is sharing secrets behind the globally recognized Olympic medals athletes train so hard to obtain. The value of an Olympic medal is said to be worth quite a bit, and with the major sporting event just around the corner—beginning July 23 through August 8, in Tokyo, Japan—all eyes will be glued to the television wondering who is going home with a precious piece of history. 

The design of the Tokyo medals, designed by Junichi Kawanishi, reflects the ideology that athletes must always strive to achieve glory and victory daily. The design incorporates light and brilliance in the shape of polished stones, symbolically mirroring the warm glow of friendship, diversity, and representation, and the athletes’ energy and those who continue to uplift them.

“The value of gold is a curious inquiry we receive all the time, especially around the time of the Olympics,” said Terry Hanlon, president of Dillon Gage Metals. “It’s one of the most discernible medals in the world, and it’s only natural for individuals to be curious about what it’s made of and its true value. Most medals awarded during the sporting event aren’t worth much because they aren’t solid gold but rather silver with gold plating.” 

So, the question resides, how much is an Olympic medal actually worth? Every gold medal that athletes receive for their accomplishments is comprised of 99.9 percent silver and 6 grams of plated gold, weighing about 556 grams. Subtracting the gold from the silver brings the medal down to 550 grams in weight, while silver and bronze are a lesser metal weight at 550 grams and 450 grams respectively. 

Considering it takes 31.1033 grams to equal a troy ounce, and if the silver is truly pure silver, it takes some simple mathematics to discover the true value of the Olympic medals. Taking these numbers plus the current trade price of silver, approximately $26.00, and utilizing a common equation, the estimated value of gold can be calculated. 

The equation includes grams divided by troy ounce, then multiplying by trade price to find the dollar amount. In practical terms to solve for the total dollar amount in silver, use 550g/31 x $26.00 to equal $461.29.

In addition to the previous calculation, then add in 6 grams to account for the gold plating. In today’s currency, an ounce of gold is trading approximately for $1,808. Using the same equation to solve the gold composition: 6g/31 x $1,817 = $350.75. 

Combined, the gold and silver composition’s value for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics gold medal is approximately worth $812.04. And the value for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics silver medal is approximately worth $461.29. 

But no matter the actual value of all these medals, to compete on the world stage of the Olympics, one of the most prestigious sports competitions, is truly priceless. Dillon Gage Metals wishes every Olympian luck and sends their support to each nation’s competitors during the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

Six-Time World Champ Comes out of Retirement

A former six-time World Boxing champion from Miami is making a highly anticipated comeback to the sport at the ripe age of 40 years old, as part of a mission to reclaim the title once hers and raise the caliber of women’s professional boxing.

Puerto Rico-born Melissa Hernandez has been living in Miami for the last nine years, building a name for herself as one of the region’s most reputable boxing instructors—teaching a hardened class of fitness enthusiasts at the Continuum on South Beach Sporting Club for the last three years. As someone who is self-confessed as Married to Boxing, Hernandez now yearns for gold again, since retiring from the sport in 2016 and while keeping a watchful eye on the women rising up the ranks with utmost contempt for whom she considers as not that great.”

Last year, Melissa re-laced her gloves and returned to her New York gym to resume training at Gleason’s in Brooklyn, where she sparred at the height of her career. While considering Miami her home, she regularly travels to New York to train with her eye on the prize, after recently becoming the number one contender for the World WBC Welterweight Title, currently held by American fighter, Jessica McCaskill. With her new Las Vegas-based manager and promotor in New York behind her, Melissa is determined to de-throne the reigning champion when boxing resumes in the wake of COVID-19.

I decided to retire in 2016 after winning all the titles in my weight class because the purse that came with the glory was ridiculously low says Melissa when asked why she threw in the towel. “I decided to return to the sport because I’ve seen how competitively weak the field has now become and I want to change that. I love working with my classes at the Continuum Sporting Club in Miami Beach and I’ve seen the passion and hard-working talent that comes from Miami as a city with a strong boxing history. I like pushing the envelope and my body and mind feels just as able as I was ten years ago.”

Melissa moved from Puerto Rico to the Bronx in New York with her family in 1984. Melissa’s mother was as scientist and father a psychologist and she attended the Bronx Community College, but dropped out to pursue her love for the arts and a career in film, video and photography after an internship at the Whitney Museum at the age of 15 years old. Melissa wanted to be an editor in film but ended up in the fashion business working for the likes of Patagonia and The GAP in New York City for four years until she was 22 years old.

Melissa admired fellow Puerto Rican boxer, Héctor Camacho, and began hanging-out with friends at a local boxing gym in the Bronx. In 2002 at 22 years old, Melissa started sparring with a trainer who saw tremendous potential and encouraged her to train for participation in the prestigious New York Golden Gloves boxing tournament at Madison Square Garden where she lost in the final. Melissa grew to enjoy her time in the ring and realized she was made for boxing.

After fighting at the USA Boxing Nationals as an amateur, Melissa became certified by USA Boxing in 2003 to train amateur boxers, but was determined to continue with her own career in Florida where she was scouted by a number of trainers. Melissa continued to hone her boxing skills for a year before moving back to New York City, where she continued her training in the Bronx at The Webster Police Athletic League Center. Melissa won the New York Golden Gloves tournament over two consecutive years in 2004 and 2005 and turned pro in the winter of 2005 under the mentorship of trainer Belinda Laracuente. Melissa began training as a professional at the renowned Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn and fought her first WBA Junior Welterweight World Title fight against Kelsey Jeffries in 2006. In the same year, Melissa claimed her first title and became the WIBA Super Bantamweight World Champion after beating Lisa Brown in Edmonton, Canada. By 2008, Melissa became the top ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the world and would travel the globe defending her titles and claiming many more along the way, before moving to Florida in 2011 where she would train at the world famous 5th Street Gym in Miami Beach.

After winning six World Boxing titles over a ten-year period, Melissa decided to hang up her gloves in 2016, citing how female boxers were financially being treated unfairly. Over the next several years, Melissa would concentrate on being a successful boxing instructor, teaching at local gyms throughout Miami and building her individual client base for one-on-one instruction. Melissa’s elite talent as a boxing instructor was spotted by a fellow trainer who introduced her to the Continuum Sporting Club in Miami Beach, where Melissa would become immensely popular among the residents and homeowners at the luxury beachfront community.

Last year, Melissa resumed her training at Gleason’s Gym in New York City in her quest to reclaim the WBC Welterweight title that she hopes will be planned for later this year, after winning her first comeback fight in Louisiana in 2019. Known as Melissa “HuracanShark” Hernandez, her previous titles include: WIBA Super Bantamweight, GBU Lightweight World Title, WIBA Lightweight World Title, WIBA Super Featherweight World Title, WBA Intercontinental Featherweight Title, WIBA Interim Lightweight Title, IBS Light Welterweight World Title, WBC Featherweight World Title and UBF Super Lightweight World Title.

While age 40 is considered old for women’s boxing, this doesn’t deter Melissa, who wants to continue fighting for another two years until she claims the one or more titles she vows to bring home to Miami. Her long-term plans are to open her own boxing studio while continuing to paint and discover new art galleries in her spare time. Melissa lives in Miami Beach, Florida and is currently single.

JTV Jewelry Care

Knowing how to properly care for and clean your jewelry will help keep it sparkling for years to come, but it can be difficult to know the best way to clean them as different gemstones and metals require special care.

See below for expert tips from Kim Kanary, Certified Diamontologist and Vice President of Community Development & Engagement at JTV about important care details for many different gemstones on how to simply and safely clean your jewelry at home.

EXPERT TIPS FROM KIM KANARY:

Guidelines for Cleaning Jewelry: 

  • Generally, you can use lukewarm water, mild dish soap or jewelry cleaner, a soft cloth, or a soft bristle toothbrush.
  • In a small bowl, prepare a cleaning solution by mixing two tablespoons of mild dishwashing liquid with one quart of lukewarm water. Or, if you are using a commercial jewelry cleaner, be sure to follow all instructions, and make sure the expiration date has not passed since an expired cleaner may be ineffective or perhaps even damage your jewelry.
  • To clean: soak for 10-20 minutes, gently brush all sides, rinse with clean water, pat dry with a clean cloth. You can repeat this as much as you’d like to achieve the desire cleanliness and appearance.  

For Silver Jewelry:

  • First, try simply polishing it. To polish, use a silver or microfiber cloth and use long back-and-forth motions. Avoid rubbing in circles, as this can magnify small scratches.
  • If simple polishing doesn’t deliver the desired level of shine, following the cleaning guidelines above for a full cleaning of your jewelry.

For Gold Jewelry:

  • Follow the general cleaning guidelines above.

 For Gold-Plated Jewelry:

  • Rub gently with a soft cloth to restore shine.
  • If more cleaning is needed, follow the general cleaning guidelines above.

 For Earrings with Gemstones:

 Costume Earrings: 

  • Because glue is often used to attach stones, be extra cautious when cleaning.
  • Wipe gently with a clean, damp cloth and use as little water as possible.
  • Dry with a soft, absorbent cloth.
  • Let air dry before wearing or storing.

 How to keep your jewelry clean & sparkling: 

  • Earrings should be the last thing you put on and first thing you take off.  This will help you avoid getting hair or other products on your earrings, which can dirty or damage them.  
  • Wipe all jewelry with a soft, dry cloth when you take it off.
  • Be sure to properly store your jewelry.  If you prefer a jewelry box, place each piece in its own pouch or plastic bag.
  • Make sure jewelry is completely dry before storing.
  • Avoid wearing jewelry when bathing, swimming, or exercising

Hrvy – Nevermind

Today, Capitol Records released “NEVERMIND,” the first single and leadoff track from HRVY’s debut album, Can Anybody Hear Me? “NEVERMIND” sees HRVY set the stage for pop domination with the juddering electro-pop sound he’s been so passionately perfecting over the last two years.

Co-written with J Hart (Justin Bieber) and Pollack (Lauv), the new single is a burst of pitch-shifted vocals that echoes the dance floor melancholy of previous single “ME BECAUSE OF YOU,” which is also included on the album.

HRVY will perform “NEVERMIND” on Nickelodeon’s “All That,” airing tomorrow, July 25, at 9:00 PM/8:00 Central Time. HRVY said, “I wrote this song last summer with J Hart and Pollack, who have written some of my favorite songs of the last few years. I’m so pleased this track turned out how it did and that everyone can finally hear it and see how the new music on the album is going to sound.”

Set for release on August 28, the album also includes the global smash “Personal,” which is certified Gold in the U.S., plus recent releases “Unfamiliar” and “Be Okay” (with R3HAB).

Can Anybody Hear Me? illuminates the many sides of HRVY and his musical tastes. While the plaintive acoustic ballad “She Isn’t You” nods to old school boy bands like *NSYNC, the title track is a banger that is sure to go down a storm in a live scenario. “ME BECAUSE OF YOU” showcases a musician truly coming into his own, embraced by fans who are experiencing similar growing pains as they transition into adulthood.

HRVY’s quest to craft the perfect pop song is connecting with an astronomical audience worldwide, with 20,000 tickets already sold for his upcoming rescheduled world tour, which includes dates in the U.S., U.K., Europe, Asia and Australia. At just 21, HRVY is already a global star, having traveled the world and scoring collaborations with artists such as Korean supergroup NCT Dream, esteemed Norwegian DJ and The Vamps collaborator Matoma, Seeb and Goodboys and Cuban-born Latino sensation Malú Travejo. Wonderland said, “HRVY is undoubtedly one to watch” and GQ (Britain) noted, “HRVY is the whole pop star package.” He has 4.8 million Instagram followers, over 2.7 million YouTube subscribers, 1 million followers on Spotify and more than 1 billion combined streams to his name, including over 250,000 streams in the U.S. alone. 2018 saw HRVY perform his biggest ever UK headline gig at London’s Hammersmith Apollo and last year saw him performing at Radio 1’s Big Weekend, sharing the same stage as Mark Ronson, Miley Cyrus, Stormzy and Charli XCX – both proving to be landmark moments in the pop star’s career.
