Atlanta celebrates life of fashion friend and icon … (Obituary clipped courtesy of friend Carlos Coleman)
Matthew Weaver a Virginia native and was no stranger in the fashion industry. In fact, whenever he was out on the town, most people wondered “who was that well-dressed man.” From the modern compliments of nice outfit to the modest of just a head nod, Matthew definitely knew how to stand out from the rest with his classic sense of style, sophistication, creative flair, and solid presence of what a gentleman should look like.
After graduating from college to become a teacher, Matthew quickly changed career paths and decided to follow his passion: fashion. He obtained his fashion niche in New York City over 20 years ago and migrated to Atlanta where he worked in a men’s store in Buckhead. Growing frustrated of the fashion market dictating what men should wear, Matthew focused his eyes toward custom wear prompting him to strike out and launch his own store called “Manstyles.”

These pieces, as well as other tailored designs were available in Mr. Weaver’s signature line, “The Matthew Weaver Collection.”

The Clippings | President Obama “health care is not a privilege for a few, but a right for all” | Remarks on SCOTUS ruling | Follow the Buzz
June 25, 2015
From the Rose Garden, President Barack Obama gave remarks on the Supreme Court’s #SCOTUS ruling on Affordable Care Act — “health care is not a privilege for a few, but a right for all.” — see comments in context below.
11:34 A.M. EDT
THE PRESIDENT: Good morning, everybody. Have a seat. Five years ago, after nearly a century of talk, decades of trying, a year of bipartisan debate — we finally declared that in America, health care is not a privilege for a few, but a right for all.
Over those five years, as we’ve worked to implement the Affordable Care Act, there have been successes and setbacks. The setbacks I remember clearly. (Laughter.) But as the dust has settled, there can be no doubt that this law is working. It has changed, and in some cases saved, American lives. It set this country on a smarter, stronger course.
And today, after more than 50 votes in Congress to repeal or weaken this law; after a presidential election based in part on preserving or repealing this law; after multiple challenges to this law before the Supreme Court — the Affordable Care Act is here to stay.
This morning, the Court upheld a critical part of this law -– the part that’s made it easier for Americans to afford health insurance regardless of where you live. If the partisan challenge to this law had succeeded, millions of Americans would have had thousands of dollars’ worth of tax credits taken from them. For many, insurance would have become unaffordable again. Many would have become uninsured again. Ultimately, everyone’s premiums could have gone up. America would have gone backwards. And that’s not what we do. That’s not what America does. We move forward.
So today is a victory for hardworking Americans all across this country whose lives will continue to become more secure in a changing economy because of this law.
If you’re a parent, you can keep your kids on your plan until they turn 26 — something that has covered millions of young people so far. That’s because of this law.
If you’re a senior, or an American with a disability, this law gives you discounts on your prescriptions — something that has saved 9 million Americans an average of $1,600 so far.
If you’re a woman, you can’t be charged more than anybody else — even if you’ve had cancer, or your husband had heart disease, or just because you’re a woman. Your insurer has to offer free preventive services like mammograms. They can’t place annual or lifetime caps on your care because of this law.
Because of this law, and because of today’s decision, millions of Americans who I hear from every single day will continue to receive the tax credits that have given about eight in ten people who buy insurance on the new marketplaces the choice of a health care plan that costs less than $100 a month.

Living Atlanta Style — Angela Robinson, Crystal Fox and Gavin Houston from “The Haves and the Have Nots” and Patrice Lovely, Kendra C. Johnson and Palmer Williams from “Love Thy Neighbor” brought the buzz behind the buzz to lunch at a press reception at Maggiano’s Little Italy in Buckhead, in preparation for season return of their respective shows. From funny to mysterious to villainous, the OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network’s stars have been hard at work with two exciting new seasons.
After watching season sneak peek, the cast participated in a Q&A fielding questions from what it’s like doing to see surprises in upcoming scripts to enjoying great careers performing work of Tyler Perry. Crystal Fox remains a buzz favorite because we oh so love her on theatre stage, but Angela Robinson may be one to watch this season.
OWN’s “Love Thy Neighbor” moves to Friday nights at 9pm ET/PT beginning June 26, and “The Haves and the Have Nots,” kicks off Tuesday, June 30 with an explosive season premiere.

What I like about E-Junkie
E-Junkie doesn’t attempt to own or control your products. They simply charge a monthly subscription for unlimited order processing with hosting and other options. No need to worry about royalties or commission checks to come later — money you make is yours – and in the bank instantly.
What are you selling?
Don’t give away ALL your content for FREE. Learn from newspapers. Remember them. Cut blog posts, video, music and other content short. Sell full versions online available via download. If it don’t make money — it don’t make sense. Selling and becoming a store is monetizing at it’s best. There’s no better way to get money online — sell your products and products of others via partnerships and consignment. But first, just start selling.
Your Blog is your store
Like many services, e-junkie provides ordering and payment buttons to include in blog posts. Limit blog posts to excerpts and offer full version either via download or subscription access. Download works best as there are more readers who like to read offline than on your blog. Offering digital downloads increases your influence as an expert — after all you’re getting paid for your work.
What makes great digital products:
- Sell full version blog posts as digital newsletters
- Sell full version podcasts into digital curriculum
- Sell photos with your signature watermark removed
- Sell chapters of upcoming books
- Sell books (remember to also offer printed versions)
- Sell webinars
