THE MOB MUSEUM

| Filed under Past Events

During Black History Month in February The Mob Museum, the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, will offer special guided tours each Saturday and Sunday from 4 to 5:30 p.m. highlighting the African American role in organized crime and law enforcement, from the Great Migration to the present day.

The tours will feature several prominent African-American figures, including Abraham Bolden, the first African-American Special Services agent appointed by President John F. Kennedy, and Eunice Carter, who broke both race and gender barriers in 1935, becoming the first black woman assistant district attorney in New York State. In that role, she organized a racketeering case that ultimately led to the conviction of Mob boss Lucky Luciano.

Visitors will also learn about Leroy Nicholas “Nicky” Barnes, a former leader of “The Council” in New York City, the infamous criminal organization that controlled the heroin trade in Harlem. The tours also will cover the allegations of a fix and the possibilities of Mob ties surrounding Muhammad Ali’s famous boxing win over Sonny Liston in Miami.

The cost for these limited-time guided tours is $10, plus the regular admission price. To make reservations, please call (702) 229-2734 or visit http://themobmuseum.org/plan-your-visit/tickets/guided-tours-now-available/.

New Member Nevada Health Co-op

| Filed under Nonprofit Members

Public Radio KCEP-FM is proud to welcome Nevada Health Co-op as it’s newest non-profit member.

You’ve heard a lot about healthcare lately. But have you heard about Uncomplicare? It’s healthcare…Uncomplicated. It means: FREE co-pays for some doctor visits and medications.It means: FREE check-ups and screenings. It means: In some cases even your premiums could be FREE.

Health care hasn’t always been so complicated. In the beginning it was simple, neighbors helping neighbors. It was about compassion.

In 2010 The Affordable Care Act was signed into law, and in some small way, compassion made a comeback. The ACA created 25 state health insurance co-operatives, including the first member-operated health insurance plan in Nevada history—Nevada Health Co-Op. This was a great moment for our country. A chance to make our health care system work better, for more of us.

We believe health insurance shouldn’t be so complicated, so daunting, so controversial. It should be personal, caring and once again, people helping people. Nevada Health Co-Op is here for one reason: to make health insurance simply better.

The Affordable Care Act was created to give consumers greater control over their health care. Under this new law, the American people will have greater access to resources and information they need to make informed decisions about their health and greater access to quality care.

A key element to Health Care Reform was the establishment of new, member-operated, member-focused, health insurance co-operatives to ensure all Americans have access to quality health insurance. These co-operatives, including Nevada Health Co-Op, will help you:

  • Search for and compare private health plans
  • Get answers to questions about your health coverage options
  • Get a break on costs
  • Enroll in a plan that meets your family’s needs

This is an unprecedented opportunity for all Americans to take control of their health care and their family’s health and well-being.

We encourage you to learn more about the program at the government’s official website: healthcare.gov

DXC Hits Las Vegas

| Filed under Community Affairs

The Annual Las Vegas Dunk Exchange known as DXC took place on February 16th inside the Hard Rock Café on the Las Vegas Strip. Known as one of the biggest shoe expos in the West thousands came out to buy, sell and trade their kicks. The overwhelming support for the Las Vegas Dunk Exchange is in part because of the DXC’s consistency, large selection of street wear companies and its ability to showcase sneakers, music, fashion and art in Las Vegas.

The purpose of DXC is to bring the “Sneaker Head” culture as a whole together for a fun time with other fellow “Sneaker Heads” one attendee commented by saying this is “For sneaker heads, by sneaker heads.”

The thousands that came out for this year’s event consisted of attendees from New York, Atlanta, Nashville, Chicago, Seattle, Phoenix, Los Angeles and Miami. Most came out just to check what new kicks were out and how to cop a fresh pair for the new season. Others came out to try to sell their kicks that they have in their closet that they have out grown or taking the opportunity to trade up their style.

This year DXC concluded with a special live performance from Las Vegas Native and independent artist “Dizzy Wright”, DXC will be back in Las Vegas Fall 2014 for another round.dxc_online
