Drug Company Halts Sales And Production Of Sizzurp

After years of being glamorized by hip-hop culture, a high-end prescription cough syrup brand, known in the streets as lean, has been taken off the market.
According to TMZ.com, a rep for Actavis — which produces the popular Promethazine Codeine product — credited the halt in production and sales to recent negative media attention over drug abuse worries.
“Given [recent media attention], Actavis has made the bold and unprecedented decision to cease all production and sales of its Promethazine Codeine product,” said a rep for the company.
Before the announcement, pint bottles sold for around $800. Now, TMZ reports that some rappers are offering up to $100,000 to get whatever’s left from their suppliers.

Google Patents Contact Lens With Built-In Camera

     Google recently filed a patent for a new contact lens system that would include built-in cameras. While details are unknown, Yahoo speculates that the technology could potentially allow the tech giant to shrink its wearable device, Google Glass, into the size of a single contact lens.

     According to Patent Bolt, the contacts would be controlled by "a sophisticated system" of "unique blinking patterns." Furthermore, it could also potentially grant the blind the ability to see certain things, according to Patent Bolt's reporting of the patent application. "For example, a blind person wearing Google's contact lens with a built-in camera may be walking on a sidewalk and approaching an intersection. The analysis component of the contact lens can process the raw image data of the camera to determine ... that there is a car approaching the intersection."

 2 RF: You’ve worked in many capacities during your rise in the industry, which one taught you the most?

WW: Being an intern taught me the most, when you start at the bottom you gain an appreciation and understanding for every aspect of the business. It forces you to be humbled and learn as much as possible in order to grow.

3 RF Name 5 industry people that you greatly admire.

WW:  Lee L’Heureux – Hardest working person I ever met and great person of strong character. Peter Gray – Incredible Leader and motivator. Unmatched direction, execution and passion. Nicole Sellers – One of the most honest down to earth people I know. Orlando McGhee – My mentor in the game and one of the most knowledgeable people I know. Brannon Scales – The 1st person at a major label to believe in me and offer me an opportunity. 

4 RF: What advice would you give someone just starting who wants to be were you are in half the time?

WW: Don’t be afraid to take risks! If you believe in something, don’t be afraid to stand up and fight for it. Early in my career I played it safe and didn’t speak up, by doing so, I think it took longer for my true talents and abilities to be noticed. Greater the risk, greater the reward.

5RF: How important are industry trades?

WW: Very important, in the “information age” there aren’t many things more important than information. The information provided by trades are a big asset to my work every single day.
