Things That Make You Go Hmmm?

“WASHINGTON, Jan 8 (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate voiced strong support on Thursday for Israel's battle against Hamas militants in Gaza, while urging a ceasefire that would prevent Hamas from launching any more rockets into Israel.

Under the Reign of the First Black President, Will America Lose Another Generation of Black Males?

By Phillip Jackson

The previous generation of young Black males was destroyed between 1985 and 2005. No amount of crying, cursing or hand-wringing can change this because that generation is gone! We need only walk down any city street in almost any predominantly African American community to see residue of the broken lives -- millions of young Black men nationwide. Few people spoke out effectively and even fewer engaged in actions to… Continue

What Black America Can Learn from Communist China

What Can Black America Learn from Communist China?

Build Businesses and Prosper

By Robert N. Taylor

When it comes to China, the numbers are truly astounding. The Asian giant has the fastest growing economy in the world - averaging roughly 10 percent growth per year for the past 25 years. By way of contrast, if we in the United States grow by just three percent, our economists consider that good news.

In fact, China is growing so rapidly that it expects to build a… Continue

single online calendar to post their events and to check the

events of other organizations and institutions?

And what if the calendar allowed for great detail;

Economic Armageddon

From the Ramparts

Junious Ricardo Stanton

Economic Armageddon

“It is often reported in the headlines of newspapers that a certain gentleman or woman had been brutally beaten up for failing to pay the debts due to a money-lender. In Malaysia, money-lenders are often referred to as “Ah-Longs”. This is even the case when the debt is paltry. If the money-lender adopts the “soft method” in recovering a loan, it may encourage defaults and non-payments. Brutality… Continue

The sincerity of our words are soothing and healing to others

Family, I'm in tears as I type these few lines. My co-worker recently lost her mother who was only 54 years old. She died of cancer in October 2008. My co-worker and friend is currently reading Somebody Prayed for Me, and she just called me in tears after reading the story "One Moment With You" and the poem "Always In My Heart." These are pieces dedicated to the memory of my maternal grandmother who raised me, nurtured me, loved me, and taught me about being a strong woman. She died at the age… Continue

Crystal Ball Gazing

“In the real estate realm, the proverbial ‘other shoe’ hasn’t dropped yet, but certainly is dangling - and that’s commercial real estate. As homeowners writhe in agony and stop spending, retailers will go out of business, businesses of all stripes will suffer and commercial real estate will implode. The leverage left over from just the private equity foray into commercial real estate in the… Continue

Nigeria's Constitution: Immunity Clause - To Remove or Not to Remove

It is perhaps expedient for me to begin this article by acknowledging that I am also contributing to a debate which has been raging for a long time, and to which thousands of Nigerians all over the world have contributed their own opinions. While I do not want to appear repetitive, it is instructive to note that I will definitely not have the last word on this matter, for as long as the debate continues to rage. Hence I am not daunted to contribute to it, because my little voice will add more… Continue

Dear Reader, before you think or say “Oh my God, not another essay about Nigerian corruption from this guy”, please bear with me.

Secondly, this is not another article about the consequences of corruption in Nigeria, but to narrate some personal political experiences. So please forgive me.

When I consented to coordinate the plans for the… Continue
