100m Sprint Olympic Semi-Finalist Kemarley Brown’s Windy Road Goes Through California
January 01, 1970
For the last 6 weeks, in a small space in my kitchen, I have hosted an 100m sprint Olympic semi-finalist by the name of Kemarley Brown. When Kemarley suddenly decided to return to Oakland and train with me, his former junior college coach, the kitchen is where we built his Ikea day bed and rekindled our shared vision. Back in the 2014 at the California Community College State Championship, Kemarley ran the 100m in 9.93 seconds becoming the USA's national community college record holder while representing our school, Merritt College.
Not only is Kemarley the only community college athlete to break the 10 second barrier in a wind legal race but the 9.93 stands as the 3rd fastest wind legal time in history for all colleges in the United States (that's right, NCAA DI programs too). To top it off, on that day the 9.93 was the fastest time in the world for the season up to that point. The USA's Justin Gatlin went 1/100th better the next day and...

August 14, 2016
A few years ago, superheroine movies were scarcely being produced. The same could be said about feature films and TV shows that featured a latino or latina in a lead role. So Ralph Henriquez, the CEO of HenryQ Productions LLC, decided to combine the two to create his own superheroine of hispanic descent for a TV show, feature film or animated series. Her name is FUERZA, (pronouced Foo-where-sah), which stands for strength or power in spanish. In 2011, Ralph wrote, directed and produced his first short action film featuring FUERZA, starring JESSICA MAS in the lead role, which is the story of a superheroine who uses her incredible strength and power against galactic entities threatening to overtake the Earth as their own feeding grounds. Over the next four years, the project remained in post production until February of 2015 when the short film was finally completed to be submitted to film festivals. Since then, FUERZA has been selected to numerous festivals and has won THREE awards including...
