Listen Loud and Long

Deafness is no longer just something for the old. With loud music and better technology making it easier for us to get that loud music right to where it’s the most damaging. Designaffairs Studio of Germany has created an new hearing aid concept for the young (hip and fashionable!) called the “Deafinite Style”. The aid […]

LA Gang Tours

Typically in LA, you try your best to not take a wrong turn and end up in certain areas where gangs are known to hang out. For the past six months, former gangster, Alfred Lomas, and his company, LA Gang Tours, have been offering high-end bus tours of the city’s “hottest” gang spots, historic and current, including the county jail, the birthplace […]
