chris paul plant based

Chris Paul continues to pursue his plant-based mission with a financial investment in Koia, leaders in 100% plant-based nutrition shakes. This investment expands Paul’s goal of providing better access to healthy foods to all and promoting the benefits he personally experiences from a plant-based lifestyle.

Paul and Koia share a mission of making plant-based nutrition available to everyone, especially communities who lack access to healthy, low-sugar food options. As a first step in achieving their mission, Paul and Koia will introduce a Koia vending machine program on HBCU campuses focusing on campuses with which Paul has relationships. The initial pilot program will take place this year with a broader roll-out in 2022.

In addition to the HBCU program, Paul has made a commitment to purchasing 50,000 bottles of Koia Straw-nana Dream Smoothie, the best-selling flavor of Koia’s newest and most successful innovation line, for GoPuff customers nationally. Paul has an investment and partnership with GoPuff and Koia is currently the top-selling better-for-you beverage sold on the platform.

“My hope for investing in Koia and other changemakers in the industry is that we work together toward a bigger systemic culture shift where underserved communities have access and opportunity to live better, healthier lives,” said Paul.

“We are thrilled to partner with Chris Paul because he’s an exceptional human being on and off the court, embodying the power of plant-based nutrition,” said Chris Hunter, Co-founder and CEO of Koia. “We are aligned with Paul around a vision of the future where everyone has access to healthy food and look forward to working together to make that a reality.”

50 Cent Reflects On His Relationship With His Late Mother In Comparison To ‘Raising Kanan’

50 Cent Reflects On His Relationship With His Late Mother In Comparison To 'Raising Kanan'

50 Cent revealed that there was a part in the introduction of Power Book III: Raising Kanan that was inspired by his real life.

“I got bumped around a lot in the park but I was more afraid of my mom than the people I got bumped around [by] because I could not escape her,” he told Page Six. “She being a single mom at that point — she was everything,” he said.

Fifty added, “[There’s a scene] from the first episode where [titular character] Kanan gets beat up and he goes back in the house and his mother puts the toys in the socks,” 50 said to the website. “That really happened; that was from my life.”

The mogul continued speaking more on the way his mother comforted him when he was under emotional distress. “[S]he was my mom and my dad and she was tough so I didn’t know when it was OK to be emotional and when it wasn’t. She would look at me on the floor [when he was distressed] and say, ‘Get up — what you over there crying for acting like a little girl [for].’

50 Cent said, “She would get mad at you and you say, ‘Oh shit — it’s not OK to be hurt this time.’ OK, so let me get up. So she determined when she should be soft and when she should be firm.”

What other parts of Raising Kanan do you think are inspired by 50 Cent’s life?

ICYMI: OnlyFans Will Ban Pornographic Content Beginning October 1

Screen Shot 2021 08 19 at 11.56.28 PM

One of the internet’s most infamous sites known for promoting nudity and sexual content will no longer be allowing pornography on the platform starting October 1, according to NBC News.

OnlyFans announced yesterday that it was phasing out sexually explicit content to satisfy banking institutions and the financial transaction services used by OnlyFans content creators. OnlyFans said in a public statement that it was a request from the said institutions and services that prompted the change.

Nudity that adheres to the content policies will be allowed, but the platform has not decided where the line will be drawn between nudity and sexually explicit content.

OnlyFans boasts a $5 billion payout, while only having 2 million content creators and 130 million users. Adult performers have pegged the platform as a savior during the times of the pandemic, lockdowns, and no-contact entertainment.

OnlyFans has yet to respond to requests for comment on the switch.
