    Business IS Personal! How Companies Can Take Advantage - Mo Bailey on CUTV News

    C.D. - We're Actually Whining Over the OSCARS? (YET, I'M NOT

    in Islam

    ASA,


    The Oscars - the 88th, scheduled for February 28th.


    Stars, lights, the Red Carpet.


    THE crowning event of the entertainment industry.


    Haven't watched that cesspool in years.


    BUT, it has generated a lot of attention, due to the fact, that for the 2nd year in a row, all nominees in the 20 major acting categories are all white, thus - you guessed it - it lacks diversity!


    In all fairness, I didn't see Concussion, which starred Will Smith; given his superb acting, it does seem a bit strange that he wasn't nominated, given the subject matter covered (head trauma among NFL players).


    Nor did Chiraq, produced by Spike Lee.


    Didn't see either, nor the other "privilege" movies, BUT, is it possible, that other movies, actors and actresses were simply better?


    Is there a "law" that states, a black / non-white movie or performer must automatically be given a slot in any of these 20 major categories? 


    Academy-Affirmative Action?


    Weird and sad to me, but I'm sure there are those will inextricably connect this to the history and at times today, of systemic racism.


    In the meantime, all gloves are off, for the 2016 presidential races, for both parties.


    Her "highness" Hillary Clinton, at least on the surface, is running desperate, with mud-slinging that can be best characterized as - pure CLINTON.


    The unraveling is amusing, and I hope I ultimately will get the last laugh.


    On the GOP side, Donald Trump continues to gain momentum, even as Senator Ted Cruz make headways with voters.


    And YES, the "birther" issue is legit, and WILL be used by the Democrats, should Cruz

    Walking in the Peace of God's Wealth

    in Radio

    It is a New Year, and it is sweet 2016.  This year we want to walk in wisdom to obtain our perfect peace.  James 1:5 says," If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you"' so when God blesses us, we want to be in peace not guilt.  When our blessings are from God, then guilt has no place in our spirit.  We must stop looking downward and start holding our heads up

    QSI: The Seerah Of Prophet: The Battle Of Badr Part 7

    in Education

    Why is this so important? Because it is only through self-awareness that Americans can acquire a more mature appreciation of their place in history. We must remind ourselves that “Modern man lacks the humility to accept the fact that the whole drama of history is enacted in a frame of meaning too large for human comprehension or management.” On this point, Niebuhr is scathing and relentless. Those who pretend to understand history’s direction and ultimate destination are, in his view, charlatans or worse. In Niebuhr’s view, history is a drama in which both the story line and the dénouement remain hidden from view. The twists and turns that the plot has already taken suggest the need for modesty in forecasting what is still to come. Unfortunately, such humility is in particularly short supply in the present-day United States. Since the beginning of the Iraq War, the American government has been engaged in setting up the United States as what Niebuhr would call “tutors of mankind in its pilgrimage to perfection.”
