"Health is wealth."

Dame Dash is preparing to make a major contribution to health and wellness media. The former Roc-A-Fella Records boss is reportedly launching the Dash Diabetes Network, which is geared at cultivating a healthy and active life for individuals dealing with diabetes. In honor of the new launch, Dash dropped a trailer, detailing what's in store.

As as type 1 diabetic, Dash knows firsthand about the complications that come with the disease. In the 59-second sneak peek, the rap mogul compiles a number of news clips and vignettes discussing diabetes and the need to build a community that supports those with it. The Dash Diabetes Network will reportedly invite actors, musicians, doctors and everyday people on a variety if shows to discuss their own experiences and promote the network's slogan, "health is wealth."

The network will consist of ten, 20-minutes episodes that will be filmed in the form of talk shows in the style of fishbowl discussions, cooking-based episodes that offer recipes and wellness tips, and interviews with specialists.

This is yet another venture into the TV medium for Dash. After establishing his own media company, Dame Dash Studios, the businessman launched "The Dame Dash Show" in 2016. The Dash Diabetes Network will be presented by top insulin company, Afrezza. It will officially launch on Aug. 7, and can be streamed on Dash's streaming service, the Dash Diabetes App, and cable TV. Check out the teaser above.

Ayesha Curry Celebrates Google Assistant Partnership With Thanksgiving Recipe

Just in time for Thanksgiving, Ayesha Curry has teamed up with Google Assistant to share a hearty recipe or two for the chef in you.

To celebrate their partnership, the entrepreneur and mother of three made an appearance at Google's Friendsgiving event in New York City SoHo district on Thursday night (Nov. 14). Before starting a cooking demo, Curry talked about her love for cooking, the importance of family sitting around the table for a meal, and how Google Assistant has helped make her life easier.

"I think it's great because I can walk into my kitchen, child in hand while making a bottle, and ask what the rest of my day looks like. I can just say, 'Hey Google, what does the rest of my day look like' and it'll pull up my whole schedule and it's just one extra peace of mind because I didn't have to do anything tangible. It's effortless... It's like a digital version of a cookbook with how-tos, timers, everything in one and it can truly be integrated into your kitchen."

After using Google Assistant to playfully cue the Kids Bop version of "Truth Hurts," Ayesha whipped up her new Fall Bread Pudding with Brown Butter Apples recipe on a cast iron enamel skillet from her cookware collection. Not only did the device give step-by-step instructions, but it also provided her with alternative ingredients for one of the ingredients.

"With this recipe, you'll see it's super easy, it's fool-proof. Baking is so scientific, this [recipe] is not that. That's what I love about it."

After serving the cooked bread pudding to the audience, the Seasoned Life author talked about her upcoming cookbook in collaboration with one of her sisters and what people can expect.

"It's going to packed, full of flavor. The realistic nature of this [cooking mother] situation is that unless I'm writing a cookbook and developing recipes, I'm not cooking every night at home. That's just not realistic. We all have jobs, we all have things we're taking care of, but I'm always trying to get a meal on the table.

"So that's what this new book is really going to be about. It's going to be about quick, simple, easy ways [to cook]. I tried to keep everything 30 minutes or less, but it's packed and full of flavor."

Ayesha Curry's Fall Bread Pudding recipe can be found exclusively on any Google Nest device. If you're a Google Assistant users, simply say "Hey Google, show me Ayesha Curry's fall bread pudding recipe" and you'll have a sweet and savory dessert for your Thanksgiving (or Friendsgiving) dinner.
