New Seafood Eatery Rises To The Top


By Kamau Austin

There are a number of new successful soul food restaurants opening up in Southeast Queens.  You can read about some of them by checking out our restaurant section or doing a search on our site's search engine for soul food restaurants.

A new one we visited that is very good and promising is Sea Level Sea & Soul.  It is a well lite seafood eatery with good customer service and fresh seafood. It is owned by Ms. Aamira Moore, a gracious and experienced restaurateur. 

This new seafood place has very good reviews on Google.  I have enjoyed ordering at the seafood  place on two occasions.  I had the fried chicken and the fried whiting and both were cooked very well and were tasty.  The eatery's side dishes of collard greens and yams (two of my favorite sides) were delicious.

Sea Level Sea & Soul also sells steamed food dishes and fresh fish and vegetables.  Sea Level Sea & Soul is located at 
114-32 Farmers Blvd, Queens, NY 11412.  Their phone number is (347) 263-8300.

The Celebrity Kings Of Southeast Queens Power Themselves To Success




By Kamau Austin

When you do some background checking into successful people you will find that many times they have a regular fitness routine that helps give them the energy, discipline, focus and appeal to springboard them to success.  This is certainly the truth for two hip hop driven celebrities LL Cool J and 50 Cent, who powered themselves to success outside of their initial hip hop performances and music production into the larger entertainment and business fields.

LL Cool J and 50 Cent come from the tough and aggressive hip hop culture so being in peak or imposing physical shape is a part of their street cred.  Being muscular also makes them more appealing in their entertainment fields.

They both use training reflective of their roots in hip hop and rap culture.   Both men aren't youngsters.  50 Cent is 42-years of age while LL Cool J is 50.  So to look incredible at their ages, to be both muscular and ripped, takes a lot of weightlifting, cardio training, and also a healthy diet.  They get a good amount of their cardio fitness from boxing which also is practical for them to be able to protect themselves.

Malacia Anderson Creates Trendy African Adorned Fashions Fit For A Queen

By Kamau Austin And Malacia Anderson
Malacia Anderson AKA Li Li
Malacia N. Anderson AKA Li Li is the unassuming queen of women's african inspired fashion sold via e-commerce.  Perhaps the hard work she has endured to become a very familiar face in online fashion has kept her humble and down to earth.  She was once a former seamstress who hadn't sewn for quite a while.

However, she has more recently become a sophisticated and regal like inspiration for trendy and directional custom fashion on social media.  From tireless efforts of online promotion on social media her clothes and modeling aplomb have made her a ubiquitous personal clothing brand online.

Recently Etsy, the online shopping platform, did a video interview with her after she reached over 2,000 sales on their platform.  I contacted the queen of motherland imbued trendy fashions as she is busy preparing her Spring and Summer Fashion lines.  She took time out of her intense custom order schedule to answer some questions about her journey to success.

NYS James Sanders' Shares His Outlook On
the State Budget For 2018-2019






Greetings,

The recently passed 2018-2019 (NYS Budget) makes improvements on both policy and revenue items, but falls short of the progressive leadership New York is renowned for throughout the nation and world.

My Democratic Conference colleagues and I have been fighting for common sense legislation that will grow the state economy as well as protect the rights of all New Yorkers. The budget negotiations were difficult, but in the end were able to make advancements in the areas of health, housing and education. Though we can and should do more, this gives us a foundation upon which we can build.

Sincerely,
James Sanders Jr.
NYS Senator, 10th District
