    Social Justice: The Arousing of Warriors

    in Current Events

    In the United States of America, an international activist movement, Black Lives Matter, that campaigns against violence toward black Americans has arrived. Founder Alicia Garza summed up the philosophy saying: "When we say Black Lives Matter, we are talking about the ways in which Black people are deprived of basic human rights and dignity. It is an acknowledgement of black American institutionalized poverty  and genocide by organized state violence. It is an acknowledgment that 1 million Black people are locked in cages in this country which is an act of state violence.The movement uses of the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter on social media bringing mass attention to the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the murder of  teen  Trayvon Martin. #BlackLivesMatter was voted as one of the twelve hashtags that changed the world in 2014.


     Black Lives Matter became nationally recognized during street demonstrations for 2014 killings of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Eric Harris, Walter Scott, Jonathan Ferrell, Sandra Bland, Samuel DuBose,Dontre Hamilton, John Crawford III, Renisha McBride,  and Freddie Gray. Black Lives Matter has  publicly challenge  2016 United States presidential candidates to comment on Black Lives Matter issues.  Black Lives Matter stopped a Bay Area Rapid Transit  train on  one of the biggest shopping days of the year, in order to "stop business as usual" .In December 2015, three thousand people gathered at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota   to protest the killings of unarmed black men by police. 


     Does Black Americas collectively suffer from "Stockholm Syndrome" where a hostage bonds with, identify with, and sympathize with the captor?

    Social Justice: Value of Education

    in Current Events

    College, professional, and graduate schools currently cost more than ever. The cost of higher education has surged more than 538% since 1985 while the consumer price index has increased by  121%. Higher education is 4.5 times as expensive today as it was 30 years ago. There are people today who went into debt for higher education who are having their social security retirement checks garnished for student loan repayment. Among 22-year-old degree holders who found jobs in the past three years, more than half were in roles not requiring a college diploma, The young and educated are settling for jobs they wouldn’t have accepted a decade ago,


    Going to a four year school is supposed to be the foundation from which you create a future, not the transaction that crushes hopes and places you in debt that few can pay off in 10 years. What has been missing in the past was a way to get feedback or collaborate on ideas while studying on-line. Successful students of today are people who explore many things, tinkerers and fixers who see solutions to problems that other people do not see. Among the leaders in “free education “ is Khan Academy which has a unique teaching style with quality content and a wide breadth of topics; providing bite-sized, easily-understood lessons, and providing the positive feedback that keeps the student coming back .


    Students are turning to “self-study” programs blossoming on-line. Some are taking the bare minimum number of classes required by a “big name” university, at the cheapest price, then take educational and enrichment courses through free non-degree online courses .  Such students are choosing to build their own educational curricula.

    Social Justice : Healthcare Disparities and “Obamacare”

    in Current Events

    There was so much controversy about passing  “Obama-care”, officially known as The Affordable Care Act, but after all the dust has settled, there is no improvement in the health disparities between people of color in America and white Americans. Healthcare policies were written by those who were ill-equipped to address the issues that poor un-insured people face. Disparities occur in the quality of care received  (Care by Provider) even when income, health insurance and access to care are taken into account. Patients from racial and ethnic minorities often fare far worse than their white counterparts on a range of health indicators: life expectancy, infant mortality, prevalence of chronic diseases and insurance coverage, among others. We also know our health is influenced by more than what happens in a health care setting. Our health is in­flu­enced by the con­di­tions in which we live, where we work, where our chil­dren play (Care Needed due to Circumstances). Those so­cial de­term­in­ants of health play a sig­ni­fic­ant role in con­trib­ut­ing to health dis­par­it­ies.


    A year ago I attend a Pri-Med  conference in New York City which is a primary care (internal medicine) conference. There were all of the Northeast medical institutions represented with professors paid to teach the latest and greatest American Medical Association decision about  “ standard of care” in the land. There were holographic presentations from prestigious university medical school. The case study was of a 62 year old black American woman with diabetes, obesity, hypertension and early signs of cardiac and renal pathology. The panel's general attitude was that the patient “did not want to change her health status”.

    #28 - "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" Director Zack Snyder

    in Entertainment

    Zack Snyder, the director of the new DC Film "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" is today's special guest.   In this podcast, we discuss the new film, reaction to the film "Man of Steel," the creation of the DC Cinematic Universe.  He also addresses conversations he had with Christopher Nolan about not continuing the "Dark Knight" trilogy, plus his feelings on the current DC Television shows, and how characters will evolve on the big screen.


    Zack is participating in the 10th and final Crash the Super Bowl contest that will make its final appearance during the Super Bowl. 3 lucky finalists have been vying for consumer votes over the past weeks to win the grand prize. One finalist ad (based on most votes) will air during the Super Bowl and win the creator a $1 mill grand prize and the opportunity to collaborate with Zack Snyder on a future DC Entertainment film. Because the 10th and final Crash the Super Bowl also marks the 50th anniversary of the Doritos brand and the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl, Doritos is shaking up the contest this year. The two other finalists will each win a $100,000 prize and opportunity to consult on an upcoming Doritos project.
