Raggae Star Takes The Stage At Olympic Live Site Venue

By: Nicholas Pavlich

Those of us in the know, or those in attendance lucky enough to stumble upon Jewish Reggae-star Matisyahu, Monday night in concert, at LiveCity Yale Town, revelled in a performance that won’t be forgotten anytime soon. Even the pouring rain couldn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the crowd that cheered in excitement as Matisyahu, took the stage. New York City based artist wowed the audience with his unique blend of reggae grooves, Torah-inspired lyrics and hip-hop-beat boxing, all accompanied by a three-piece electric band. The show closed on a high note with the famed star performing his hit, pop-soul song, One Day.

Lone Russian

By Nicholas Pavlich

While his English was far from fluent (very little to be exact), and while our conversation took about the length that it took the traffic light at Hastings and Seymour to change, the Russian team official that I met today was one of the friendliest visitors to Vancouver I have seen since the start of the Olympics. He looked so happy to be in Vancouver and be engaging in conversation with a native Vancouverite. What an ambassador for the Russian team, Russia and its people!
