monkeypox LA via 360 Magazine by 360 Magazine

MONKEYPOX LA

The United States declares monkeypox a national health emergency

Unfortunately, Los Angeles is plagued by monkeypox. As mysterious as it has become, human scientists have defined it as a disease that is further from the truth. In fact, many authoritative sources have labeled it a disease of gay men, when in fact it is closer to the dermis than a medical skin condition. A rash that begins to appear like chickenpox. These are the types of hybrids of ebene pimples that he obtained through several seasons. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it is widely spread through kissing, anal, oral, vaginal, skin-to-skin contact, and soiled bedding such as towels. TikTok, the social media platform, has come to the rescue with recorded testimonials assuring us that ghee we are not gay and that they got it from the masseur during a spa service or a night out with a woman. Yet with more than 6,000 cases moving from west to east as covid unfolds, one wonders if hospitals will be overwhelmed during their intersection. One thing is for sure as Los Angeles’ coronavirus numbers flatten. Click HERE for Los Angeles County’s Weekly Monkeypox Case and Vaccine Summary.

Although where the Monkeypox is most inclined is in three states: The states of Washington, New York and Georgia have the highest concentration of cases. Most infections have happened among homosexual men. The World Health Organization (WHO) prescription of reducing the number of partners for men who have sex with men to curb the disease has offended the gay community, which fears that a stigma like that experienced with HIV will be repeated. Efforts to combat monkeypox are not being enough to prevent its rapid spread in the United States. For this reason, the Joe Biden government has decided to declare a national health emergency regarding the disease, a step that it has resisted taking until now. The WHO already declared an international emergency on July 23.

Limit Concealed Carry Guns

After conducting investigations on the homeless, they seem to be in the direct line of danger. Pleading for water and a cell charger around 3am in central LA, this is bar far from the most marginalized group at risk. During a probe of Pico Blvd, we witnessed the indigent in search of finding electricity for their small appliances. On the other hand, this walking case study began at a popular bar in Santa Monica and ended at a Brazilian restaurant with hanging canopy lights attached to an exposed extension cord and plug.  Once both our cell and smart watch died, this became a lifeline for us to grab am shared ride as there were no law enforcement in site for well over seven hours. With petty crime and murder on the climb, there’s a huge demand to own a concealed weapon in both LA and NYC. The new law in New York establishes a strict licensing process to obtain a concealed carry permit and a list of places considered “sensitive”.

Apply for a License

Every day, New York residents seeking a CCW permit begin their gun permit certification process with US Concealed (New York state approved agency). To find out if you can have a gun license in New York State, US Concealed has put together a simpler online concealed carry permit qualification survey and see if you could get a license. click HERE for further information.

Asst Veep of Wynn Nightlife Ryan Jones speaks to Vaughn Lowery of 360 MAGAZINE about Swedish House Mafia and Calvin Harris final performance

Wynn Scores SHM!

Asst Veep Ryan Jones solidifies residency with Swedish House Mafia at Wynn Las Vegas.

Listen to Ryan Jones on 360 MAG Apple/Spotify podcast HERE.

After individually booking the group members of Swedish House Mafia to spin, Wynn Nightlife decided to build a partnership to include the entire ensemble. This will mark SHM‘s first-ever nightlife residency within North America.

According to Ryan Jones, assistant vice president of Wynn Nightlife, the group has received an overwhelming response, resulting in a sold out show.  

The first two shows, August 20th and September 3rd, will both be held at the XS nightclub. Although Swedish House Mafia will play a traditional set in the DJ booth, audience members will witness a few surprises on those specific dates. Both shows will happen on Saturday night, around 1:32 am and play until the venue closes. With a capacity of about 4,000 people, including 176 VIP tables, Ryan thinks the show will be an enormous success.  

In addition, Calvin Harris will perform on September 17th at XS nightclub. More exciting news will be announced in the coming months.

As an innovative brand which has worked in tandem with both Coachella and the Super Bowl, the Wynn continues to seek new and exciting ways to remain relevant in both the music and entertainment industries.

According to Ryan, with regards to philanthropy, the community outreach program at Wynn Nightlife is robust. To date, the staff has volunteered 20,500 documented hours to various local charities and elementary schools within city limits.

For young people who seek similar positions, Ryan suggests they explore every aspect of the industry before making a decision.

DUNCAN LAURENCE – ELECTRIC LIFE

As combined global streams of his breakout hit Arcade soar past 10 billion, Duncan Laurence returns with a new single, Electric Life. One of his most personal songs to date, Electric Life is the first track to be released from Laurence’s sessions with his fiance, songwriter Jordan Garfield, and producer Paul Phamous (Frank Ocean, Nick Jonas). Out today via Capitol RecordsElectric Life is available for streaming / download HERE. View the lyric video HERE.

Duncan Laurence says, “In ‘Electric Life’ I sing about a warm, loving and grateful feeling towards loved ones who have passed away. It is a positive song about the transformation of deep sorrow into a feeling of hope. Delving into your memories like that probably comes closest to a brief visit to heaven and being there with all the ones you have lost.

While the song’s subject matter is weighty, Laurence was determined to cloak it in dynamic, colorful production inspired by 70s icons like Elton John and Queen. It starts with piano, which is a reference to Arcade, and then it explodes into this up-tempo pre-chorus, he explains. You can sing about sad things, but there has to be a little bit of sunshine poking through those big gray clouds.

On June 22, Laurence invited a small audience to come to the Fabrique Des Lumieres in Amsterdam, where he performed Electric Life live for the very first time. View highlights HERE.

Laurence won the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 with Arcade giving a performance that was hailed as powerful by The New York Times and haunting by The Guardian. The song took the #1 spot on Spotify’s Global Viral chart on release and ultimately took off on Tik Tok with now over 56 billion views on the platform. It has attained Gold/Platinum certifications in 37 countries, including Platinum in the U.S. Arcade was Capitol Records #1 most-streamed track of 2021. Laurence marked the milestone with a year-end live performance on the rooftop of the iconic Capitol Tower in Hollywood.

Placing in the top 30 of the Billboard Hot 100, Arcade was the first Eurovision Song Contest winner to enter the prestigious chart in 45 years. A top 10 hit at U.S. Adult Contemporary radio, the single also placed on numerous international charts, peaking at No. 1 in five countries and climbing into the top 30 of the UK Official Singles chart and the top 10 of the Shazam Global Pop Chart. Laurence performed Arcade with a string quartet on TODAY and was joined by FLETCHER for a performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Kelly Clarkson even covered the song on her own show. Now, with Electric Life, Laurence begins a new era.
