graffiti, street art
The word GRAFFITI simply means “a word or drawing on the wall”. It comes from the word Graphein in Greek and Graffito in Italian meaning “to write”. Graffiti is a plural of Graffito.
Graffiti is considered an art. It was started back in the 1960s and has become more and more popular in the 21st century all around the world. Many gangs used Graffiti as a trademark or a sign of communication between each other. Usually, a Graffiti is a drawing art that appears on public properties without permission.
Graffiti art was started in New York city and blew up in the 70s when more and more people start doing it. People were surprised to see their normal everyday wall plain color changed into colorful graphics and writings. It was a shock to the community because such things created bad looks to New York city and the mayor.
However, if you think about it, culture is built on people and without people, there won’t be New York like we’ve seen today. Anything new and provocative is considered bad or disgraceful, but how can artists express their feelings without being straight forward?
Graffiti was started in the hood, and with such bad living conditions and education, where else could these young artists express their skills? What once was a bad thing has slowly become a phenomenon all around the world. You can’t deny or disprove true art…
Graffiti has become a world wide common nowadays. Countries in Europe, Australia, South America and Asia have also added this wall art into their own community and style. Graffiti art doesn’t need to be motivated by money or fame, it comes from each and every person heart and that’s why it’s so unique and special. No matter how much critics and names calling there are about Graffiti, the true beautiful art will never die.

I love basketball. Since the day of Michael Jordan, basketball has become my favorite sport ever. I’ve watched live games and play lots of basketball myself. I love the game and always learning to improve on it on many different levels.
I’m a 5’8 guard, I mostly learn how to dribble, pass, and score by jump shots or lay ups. I’ve played almost every day this summer when the weather was pretty nice. One thing that bothers me is that I saw many dudes on the court, 6’4, 6’7 or even 6’2 dunks a basketball with ease everyday. I can’t barely touch the rim. I was said to myself that maybe God never given me that gift to dunk basketball because I’m too shot….until I saw this video…
Now that is some good dunks with style. I’m white so I don’t know if I could be able to dunk like that and I also heard that many people with African decent especially West African have very explosive muscle fiber that help them jump very high. What I need is the right training because I can’t seem to change my genetics. I need to gain probably about 14 inch vertical to beable to dunk with authority but it’s still a long way to go.
Those days have gone until I found out about the Jump Manual vertical leap program. I first got this program from a friend who was also trying to dunk and got very impressive results. I am on a one on one training program too so I get the very own instruction on what to eat and what to train without wasting any time and not injuring myself. The program is very affordable because if you are going to get a personal trainer, it’d be way more expensive … at least more than $100 a month.
I’m in this program for 4 weeks now and I can see incredible changes in my body, quickness, and strength. I have a friend taking measurements on my vertical and it is about 41 inches already. I gained 5 inches in just 4 weeks while I didn’t manage to gain much from the last 4-5 years. I’m 28 years old now and I am so excited about the new me in just a few more months. I can easily grab the rim with 1 hands now and next step will be 2 hands and DUNK. This is going to be awesome.
Learn how to dunk a basketball and impress your friends with the Jump Manual.
