    Sport Chat:Fewer BLACKS playing Major League Baseball today than two decade ago

    in Baseball

    Fewer African-Americans are playing in Major League Baseball today than two decades ago. The percentage was 8.5 percent on this season's Opening Day rosters.


    Commissioner Bud Selig announced on Wednesday the formation of a task force to tackle the issue of on-field diversity.


    New data, though, demonstrates that the decline in African-America players, while steep, isn't as precipitous as widely believed. The accepted wisdom is that the high-water mark was reached in 1975, when it was reported that 27 percent of big leaguers were African-Americans. But exhaustive research by Mark Armour, a member of the Society for American Baseball Research, shows that the actual number never exceeded 19 percent.


    "To be fair, the numbers have dropped,'' said Armour. "I believe the numbers have dropped from 18-19 percent, which is what they were for about two decades.


    "From the 1970s through the '90s, the numbers were in the high teens. Now they're half that," said Armour, who writes software for the Environmental Protection Agency.


    "What I determined, and I [analyzed data from 1947, when Jackie Robinson made his debut] up to 1986 ... is that the number never got to 20 percent. The black-player number, counting all dark-skinned players, was in the high 20s for a period. But not the African-American number. All the press stuff that comes out every April compares the African-American numbers from today with the all-black-players number from the '70s. And that's where they make their mistake."

    Setting Rules and Boundaries


    Our guest tonight Deborah L. Tillman is Parent Educator, Speaker, Author, Founder and CEO of Happy Home Child Learning Centers, Inc., located in Northern Virginia and “America’s Supernanny” on Lifetime Television.  


    Labeled “A Force for Good” by the Washington Post, Tillman has a deep passion for children.  Her mission is to transform parents and encourage them to be the best they can be.  Tillman believes that “schools and educator’s should not have to do for children what we as parents were created to do”.  Tillman says, “It is not about making a child; it is about raising a child”.  Deborah L. Tillman is America’s most authentic and powerful voice for parents and is not afraid to be open and honest with them.  Her no nonsense yet, loving approach landed her the role as “America’s Supernanny” on Lifetime Television.  Tillman holds a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Special Education from George Washington University and is currently seeking her Doctorate.  She began her career over a decade ago when she became frustrated with the lack of quality childcare her son was receiving. So she quit her very lucrative accounting job and started her own school in 1994.  


    Deborah Tillman has been a recurring Parenting guest on the Steve Harvey Television show.  She has also been seen on the View, Today Show, Katie Show, Home and Family Network, Wendy Williams and CNN to name a few.  Tillman has also been featured in Essence Magazine, Jet, Ebony, Northern Virginia, Washington Woman and Parent Magazines.  Tillman has contributed articles to Gospel Today and Jet and Ebony magazines.

    Lost Arts Radio Show #12 - Staying Sane, Clear & Connected In the Midst of Chaos

    in Health

    Lost Arts Radio host Richard Sacks (www.lostartsradio.com) has been an independent holistic health scientist since 1965. Initially motivated by his own serious health problems of the time, he made the decision to explore beyond the accepted limits and understandings of medical science to regain the vibrant state of health and ageless energy he felt was our normal condition. He began an investigation of the deeper knowledge of health and consciousness from ancient sources that modern science fails to comprehend and often brushes off with condescending arrogance. What he discovered in a multi-decade journey crossed many arbitrary dividing lines between physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health, organic agriculture (before USDA took over the term), and laws of nature that have been operating and were understood long before any of the philosophies, religions or academic disciplines we know of were even conceived. Having spent the last 40 years looking for ways to adapt ancient knowledge to modern conditions, reaching simultaneously into realms of science and consciousness, he continues the exploration and experimentation to this day. Recently invited to do a radio show on health in the broader sense of the word, covering many areas of study, Richard started Lost Arts Research Institute and Lost Arts Radio, to share what he has put together over a long period of study, trial and error, and discovery.


    This Saturday for the first time so far on Lost Arts Radio, Richard will share some of what he has learned over many years of this study, hoping that it might be useful to you in maximizing your own state of health, energy and well being during your life in this very challenging age.
