You are ONLINE – Forget about Privacy

Do you Facebook?

Remember that old MJ jam, “I always feel like somebody’s watching me“? Well, if you’re online, the chances are highly likely that someone is watching you. Even if its just the cookie snatchers.

She had weed in her backpack

Not just any kind of weed but a very high grade of weed. She called me on the phone frantic saying, “Mommi! Mommi! Someone put weed in my backpack!” I was asleep when I answered the call and hearing my child scream those words on the other end woke me up quicker than a triple expresso shot. I was up, dressed, and wearing Mac Ruby Woo lipstick when I arrived at her school 12 minutes after the call.

10:30 am — I enter the VP’s office just in time to see a SECURITY Representative going through the contents of my childs book bag. …click here to continue


Everybody Knows The War is Over and the Good Guys Lost

It was during that period when everyone ran around spending money they didn’t have, to buy shit they didn’t need, in order to impress people they didn’t like, that suicide rates went through the roof, proof that money does not equal happiness, perhaps? And it was this period that the health system fell apart, the horror stories emerged like some celebrity from Kim Kardashian’s pussy, all limp, lifeless and covered in spunk and pussy juices, we heard of how patients with cancer were told they were fine and patients with no cancer were told they had six months to live, some were sent for treatment for a disease they didn’t have.

This wasn’t just a shortage of beds, waiting lists as long as tomorrow, this was human stupidity, but  no one gets punished, not in Ireland, where every day during the Celtic Tiger, during the Boom, just before the bang, was like a really good night out, you know the kind …click here to continue

The Advocate

I subscribe to EBONY Magazine because… well… I’m EBONY and the information in their publications are highly relatable. While reading the HOLLYWOOD ISSUE I came up on page 29 and an awesome column that I thought I’d share wit you. It’s called Occupy the Hood. it started online and has already spread from New York City across the country. It now has some 15,000 followers on Twitter and chapters in cities including Detroit, Pittsburgh, Boston, Seattle, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Dallas, New Orleans, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Cleveland, Chicago, Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles.

The Occupy the Hood motto: “We are the most affected of the 99 percent.” It’s a spin-off of Occupy Wall Street’s “99 percent” mantra against America’s increasing wealth gap, where Occupiers state that one percent of the population has the majority of the nation’s wealth. Occupy the Hood protesters believe Blacks should be even angrier than Whites in the 99 percent because people of color, particularly in low income areas, have been disproportionately affected by high unemployment, incarceration and fallout from the housing bust.

The facts support their claims: …click here to continue


Finan¢ial Parenting

It’s one of life’s little mysteries: how two kids raised by the same parents could develop distinct ideas about saving and spending. But new research, the Arizona Pathways to Life Success for University Students (APLUS) study, is shedding light on the phenomenon. In fact, Soyeon Shim, Ph.D., developed APLUS while raising her teens, one cautious and one risk taking, after noticing the lack of qualitative information on young people’s money habits.

It turns out kids develop one of three distinct money identities: pathfinder, drifter, or follower. Each behavior has its own pattern of strengths and weaknesses affecting what kids know and how they use it. Overcoming the weaknesses ensures that kids get their wallets under control and don’t… click here to learn more
