DJ Cavem of Moetavation crew, yes the spelling is different but the meaning behind it is still the same. This artist, activating from the Five Points in the Mile High City of Denver, Colorado, has an eclectic, hard hitting, world sound. Producing and writing his own beats and lyrics, he spits on real topics affecting all of us real people. From politricks to global warming, this man is in tune, telling it like it is while giving the listener an unforgettable production. He'd like to say he's just a hiphop head from the hood, but at 23, his musical prowess and social awareness is uncanny. His albums mix the sounds of hiphop, reggae, dancehall, jazz, world flavor, hot punchlines and occasionally a dose of patoi, and the list goes on. He represents so much more than just rap and hiphop, he represents life. His music would be my life soundtrack if I had one; no limits, timeless.

International and domestic economic policy research organization<...
The Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR) was established in 1999 to promote democratic debate on the most important economic and social issues that affect people's lives. In order for citizens to effectively exercise their voices in a democracy, they should be informed about the problems and choices that they face. CEPR is committed to presenting issues in an accurate and understandable manner, so that the public is better prepared to choose among the various policy options.Toward this end, CEPR conducts both professional research and public education. The professional research is oriented towards filling important gaps in the understanding of particular economic and social problems, or the impact of specific policies. The public education portion of CEPR's mission is to present the findings of professional research, both by CEPR and others, in a manner that allows broad segments of the public to know exactly what is at stake in major policy debates. An informed public should be able to choose policies that lead to an improving quality of life, both for people within the United States and around the world.CEPR was co-founded by economists Dean Baker and Mark Weisbrot. Our Advisory Board includes Nobel Laureate economists Robert Solow and Joseph Stiglitz; Janet Gornick, Professor at the CUNY Graduate School and Director of the Luxembourg Income Study; Richard Freeman, Professor of Economics at Harvard University; and Eileen Appelbaum, Professor and Director of the Center for Women and Work at Rutgers University.
