SORT BY Relevancy
If not dealt with, life failures can put people into a paralysis state of mind. It’s important to know that life will deal you many different kinds of hands, some are good and some are bad. Join me and my Special guest, Pastor Nicole Griffin as we discuss her new book “Triumphant, The New Me” and what propelled her to write a book on helping women to get past their failures.
Nicole is no stranger to heartache, tragedy, abandonment and shame. She was raised in the housing projects in the inner city “slums” of Louisville, KY. She saw more violence, drug dealing, and scandals before the age of 12 years old than most people see in their entire lives. After her first year of college, Nicole’s mother (the only parent she had ever known) died of a massive heart attack in her late 40’s causing her to feel deserted and discouraged. Her life went downhill from there as she searched for love in all of the wrong places to fill her void. She experienced sexual, physical, mental and even spiritual abuse. Her early learned faith is what gave her hope that one day God would change her life and make her a beacon of light for other females. She did not accept the victim mentality, but went on to become a Holy Ghost filled, fearless Christian and business leader, obtained several undergrad college degrees as well as a Master’s Degree in Ministerial/Pastoral Leadership from Wesleyan Seminary. Now as a pastor and motivational speaker, she has the opportunity to speak to thousands of women across the nation to help them understand that they are “greater than their failures”.
On this ongoing edition of the SUMMARY OF SUMMER 2013, we talk about many of the major news headlines that aired about FUKUSHIMA NUCLEAR FAILURES and just how bad this situation keeps getting! If you missed any of the Fukushima News this Summer then, DONT MISS THIS EPISODE!...
Dr. Alduan Tartt has a video on You Tube entitled Why Can't Successful Black Women Find a Black Man (follow up) which I suggest you watch before tonight's broadcast. We'll be going over the 7 points that HE says men are looking for in a woman before they settle down.
Though I am sure Dr. Tartt is a very nice man, his instructions about what black men are looking for in a wife are egocentric and ridiculous. To me, any black woman that would sign on for such labor intensive caretaking of a grown man is nothing but a fool.
Dr. Tartt and other black men like Steve Harvey all write books and promote themselves as experts, telling black women what they must do, be and say to "get" a black man. Such mandates leave me with three questions:
What is it that a woman who marries a man with these attitudes really getting out of the deal? Could these lists be nothing but a set-up for the black woman to assume all responsibility for black men and their failures? Why do black men blame their behavior and failings on black women - and why are black women so eager to accept that blame? Why won't black men accept accountability and responsibility for their own behavior, actions, lack of action and failures? Why are they so eager to push all that they become or fail to achieve onto black women?
Should be an interesting show as I return to BlogTalk after a lengthy hiatus. Hope you can join us! Call in number is 347-327-9215.
No sooner had I this past week completed a 2-Part guest post for the Buyers Meeting Point blog regarding the recent news that SciQuest had acquired CombineNet, when I received word from our newest sponsor Xchanging that they have acquired MarketMaker 4 (MM4), a Chicago-based provider of online sourcing and negotiation solutions. Of course this is where the similarity with the respective acquisitions both starts and ends.
Joining me today to talk about Xchanging's acquistion of Chicago-based MarketMaker4 is Ed Cross, who is the company's Executive Director of Procurement. Also joining us today is Dave Bowen, Founder and CEO of MM4.

Often as Black Americans progress from kindergarten to elementary levels of school, too many believe that "learning" is "acting white". While this sounds strange to some, consider what the Black child is being taught: "George Washington is the father of our country"; "Columbus discovered American in 1492", etc. George Washington OWNED slaves--- Native Americans were living in North America before Columbus showed up.
Many alert, intelligent Black children are over the myth. "White is right". The information presented and graded upon has little relevance to a Black child. The "exclusion" of the Black child's history (pre-slavery, slavery and now) in America public educational system causes a disconnect in the Black child and a lack of interest in "American public school selective teachings".
By almost any measure, there are gaps between Black American students and White or Asian students with respect to standard test scores, English diction and written communications. Perhaps the tools employed in teaching the fundamentals are ineffective. Stimulating discussions of slavery in American is scant in public schools. There is no avenue by which a child learns of the "TransAtlantic Slave Trade" despite it extending over 500 years. There is no discussion of the "Segregrated Years in America after slavery (1864- 1964)" , as bad if not worse than South African Apartheid.
Well documented information offered in books: The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, The Isis Papers, The Fall of America, Message to the Blackman, Race Matters, Miseducation of the Black Man, Invisible Man, are never on student reading lists nor is the information deemed important historical issues to be explored in the American public school classroom.

So Many Law Enforcement Failures:

During the pre-Civil War era, a number of states in America had laws on the books to prevent Black Americans from learning to read and write. Both White and Black people risked "flogging" (public beatings), fines and other penalties for "teaching a slave to read".
During the American Apartheid era (1864-1964), Black American schools received "used books" discarded by White schools, had teachers who received "practical teaching certificates" to teach in Black schools and education facilities for Black Americans offered training only up to the 7th grade level.
The Department of Education decided to STOP teaching "cursive writing" in public schools SEVEN YEARS ago however, the Florida court "poked fun" at Trayvon Martin's girl-friend (during the Zimmerman trial) who stated during her testimony that she could not read "cursive writing".
The young woman who was mocked is a product of Amercan public school education and is like thousands of young Americans who have never been exposed to the art of writing in cursive form.
Following the Trayvon Martin-Zimmerman trial, many Black Americans are steeped in emotions similar to that demonstrated in 1963 which fueled the march on Washington, DC. That was 50 years ago.
What has improved for the Black American since then- it is clear that American justice is not the same for all Americans. Black Americans have been marching for centuries and have barely moved an inch. There has to be more effective ways to command change.
Insanity is defined as "doing the same thing repeatedly expecting a different outcome". It is past due that Black Americans change strategy in their quest for justice and equality. American public education does not offer the ticket to success that Black forefathers dreamed of.
HOW TO USE TOOLS OF AWAKENING AND STOP REPEATING PAST FAILURES Replace the energy of fear with stepping into expansion energy: fear and anticipation have the same neurological response in the body. Out of habit and old beliefs our body translates the feeling as "danger" when it really is a sign that if we breathe into our hearts we can expand in new ways. Using our "tools" of awakening we don't have to "repeat" past failures. As mercury winds down
