DECEMBER 5, 2018
A mural of Derwin James is painted on a wall outside Baby Blues BBQ on busy Lincoln Boulevard in Venice Beach, California. Across the street is another mural, of Ronda Rousey. Around the corner is Gold's Gym, the place Arnold Schwarzenegger made famous. About a mile-and-a-half away is Muscle Beach. There's no mistaking this is L.A. Painted a month or so ago, the mural is about 15 feet high, maybe 20 feet wide, and shows James in his Chargers jersey, arms folded, coming out of a ROKiT phone. The artist responsible for the mural, Jonas Never, is a Los Angeles native who also has done murals of LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Kirk Gibson, Fernando Valenzuela and Todd Gurley.

John Paul DeJoria
December 12, 2018
John Paul DeJoria, the billionaire philanthropist, has done well while doing a lot of good. December 12, 2018 John Paul DeJoria has no personal computer. He doesn’t use email, surf the internet or own a smartphone. He’s never downloaded an app. “I have time to think,” he says. “I don’t have to go on the computer or telephone to know who sent what message when. I don’t need to know what celebrities are thinking about everything, nor do I want to.”
The self-proclaimed troglodyte has done just fine without many trappings of the digital age, thanks to great managers who regularly update him and his ability to “see outside the box.” The successful philanthropist and entrepreneur — best known for haircare giant John Paul Mitchell Systems and tequila brand Patrón Spirits International — has a net worth estimated at more than $3 billion. Earlier this year, DeJoria (known as JP to his friends) sold his 70 percent stake in Patrón to Bacardi Limited in a $5.1 billion deal.
