Today we talk with Steve Skipper. The new documentary “COLORS OF CHARACTER: An Artist’s Journey to Redemption” shares the extraordinary journey of prolific artist Steve Skipper. With no formal training, Skipper has broken down walls of racism in the world of fine art. God radically saved Skipper when he was a member of a notorious Birmingham, Alabama street gang and immediately his life was transformed. Focused on his new-found faith and his talent for painting, Skipper faithfully seized opportunities that only God could have provided and he quickly began gaining notoriety in the sports world for his meticulous artistic style of super-realism.

desire to get all his wishes fulfilled with a “magical lamp” à
la Aladdin has landed a doctor in trouble. Yes, we didn’t wake up
today thinking we’d read such news either… A doctor who had just
got back to India from London was cheated by two men who claimed to
be “tantriks,” also known as sorcerers, and sold him “Aladdin
Ka Chirag,” or Aladdin’s magical lamp, for over a quarter of a
million dollars. They promised him that it would fulfill all his
wishes without the much-needed hard work to translate them into
reality, and that it would make him a billionaire. The police have
arrested the two accused. (https://bit.ly/3kRU1LR)
MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by TimeForRehab.com
medical technology startup company’s CEO is accused of misusing
more than $400,000 in company funds on escorts, strip clubs and
personal expenses from gifts to Uber Eats, according to a lawsuit
filed by one of the company’s minority stakeholders. Ecover Global,
which runs an app to help doctors share messages with patients before
and after surgery, was accepted into a mentoring program by startup
nonprofit Tampa Bay Wave last year. 28-year-old CEO Raymond Sever was
seeking investor funding earlier this year. During a pitch night
hosted by Tampa Bay Wave in January, he told potential investors the
company had already raised $700,000 and was valued at $35 million.
Sever’s former best friend and business partner, Brandon Bowen
filed a lawsuit late last month that says the CEO misappropriated
hundreds of thousands of dollars from June 2019 to June 2020. Bowen’s
lawsuit includes a series of expense reports and text messages he
says shows Sever’s regular misuse of the startup’s funds such as:
nearly $30,000 paid to nine different women, including one who got
$12,000 total, and $17,000 in ATM withdrawals that was used to cover
liquor and visits to Thee Dollhouse strip club.
