    Orchids - Lady Slippers - Cypripedium

    in Environment

    The genus name Cypripedium is derived from the Greek words "Cypris" an early reference in Greek myth to Aphrodite, and “pedilon” for sandal.  Ladies Slipper Orchids These beautiful orchids are a favorite among orchid keepers.This is because the fused petals that form the orchid’s pouch or modified lip (labellum) resemble a slipper or shoe. The staminode (sterile stamen) is often showy and seems to welcome the insect into the pouch where it makes its way to a back-door exit and in so doing transfers pollen to the stigma.

    "I am what happens when an everyday person becomes divinely inspired.  I've chosen to re-create what life gave me and Surrender, A Psycho-Spiritual Healing Guide For Treating Anxiety and Depression was birthed out of the trauma of being drugged and robbed in November of 2014,” says Lisa. “Using these techniques gave me the strength to feel better and handle the trauma one piece at a time.

    On Why Yet's Watch with Author Lisa Y. Sparrow

    in Women

    Mental health problems are a very sensitive topic in the black community mainly because of the stigma that mental illness is a result of an individual being weak. According to a report done by blackwomenshealth.com, in 2011  the depression rate among black women was estimated to be 50% higher than that of white women. With media reporting murders of women such as Sandra Bland how are we to expect the rate to be anything but dismal? But all is not lost and there is hope - Lisa Y. Sparrow.


    Lisa is a divorced mom of 2 children who lives in Columbus, Ohio. She has bounced between foster homes and mental hospitals while growing up. During her early adult years she suffered multiple miscarriages and spent many moments, like many of us, feeling unloved and unwanted. Lisa used her experiences as a springboard to grow in her faith and to encourage and uplift herself. By doing so she encourages not only her children but everyone she encounters and shares her story of empowerment with. And share she does in her autobiography - His Eye is on the Sparrow.


    Join me as I sit down with Lisa as we discuss how she found the courage to become bigger than her circumstances. See ya soon, Why Yet

    The Power Zone with DU: Brenden Ortiz, Pretty Boy With The House In Virginia

    in Motivation

    Wednesday, July 22, 2015


    Tonight, The Power Zone with DU welcomes Brenden Ortiz, Motivational Speaker, Activist for HIV/AIDS and Author of the bestselling novel “The Pretty Boy with the House In Virginia”.  Mr. Ortiz joins host, Darlene A. Anderson of Darlene’s Utopia and Author of Not Without A Fight: 10 Ways To Win When it Appears You’ve Already Lost, to discuss his journey from hopeless to hopeful, and how he is educating and inspiring others to do the same.


    Brenden Ortiz is a twenty-five year old Homosexual Male and Native of Brooklyn, New York.  He passionately speaks out on HIV/AIDS and its Stigma because he too is HIV POSITIVE. He shares with inner city youth the period in his life in which he considered to be stages of total darkness; at the age of 16, he experienced the tragic death of both his mother and father, which led to him to becoming internally numb, exploring the world recklessly with no care, and contracting the HIV virus in 2010.


    “The Pretty Boy with the House In Virginia”, chronicles Brenden's journey from hopeless to hopeful. Brenden is dedicated to utilizing his testimony to promote awareness and actions of prevention. Having established “What Does HIV Look Like”, a NY based Non-profit and preparing to educate the masses on not just the diagnosis, but the stigmas that are attached to it…it is clear that he is on a mission of purpose!


    Join Brenden Ortiz on August 15, 2015 for


    What Does HIV Look Like? Monologue
