Whether we like it or not, our daily life routines can quickly turn into a repetitive mechanical process of dullness. When we indulge in any activity, do we actually engage in that activity 100%? Probably not, and the reason is simple: Our level of engagement in any activity is constantly influenced by mood, attitude, and the staggering number of people that we interact with throughout the day. In other words, the terrible trio (mood, attitude and those around us) subjects us to the mechanical motion of life, but the good news is that, as independent human beings, we get to choose which parts of the trio actually end up affecting our everyday lives.
On today’s show our guest Nihar Suthar, founder of Hype Up Your Day; will share with us some incredible tips on how to own this trio. Once these strategies are incorporated into our lives, nothing can bring us down, and we can WIN NO MATTER WHAT!!! This will be a delightful show so please join us.
NOTE: We will also get a sneak preview of Nihar's new book entitled "The Corridor of Uncertainity" which is a heart-warming narrative about the Afghanistan cricket team.

Chilufya Tayali , Why corruption is not a "sexy" subject in Africa.
"A 2002 African Union study estimated that corruption cost the continent roughly $150 billion a year. To compare, developed countries gave $22.5 billion in aid to sub-Saharan Africa in 2008, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development." CFR
Today we're continuing our discussion on why the phrase "Black Lives Matter" means so much in a society in which being Black often times means being assaulted on different levels from all aspects.
From facing the persistent realities of institutionalized racism and pressures outside of our communities, to dealing with the myriad pressures within our communites, the constant stress of navigating these minefields takes a noticable toll on most Black people in America.
Hypertension, diabetes, obesity, emotional stress, psychological vulnerability, social isolation, excessive mistrust of authority, repressed anger, dysfunctional interrelationships, negative self-image, growing hopelessness....today we'll talk about the many ways that this contstant fight to assert the value of our lives manifests itself in the very lives we're fighting for.
We have plenty of strong coffee. Bring a big cup.
Black Lives Matter???? Prove it!!! While we rightly protest the suspicious death of one black woman in custody, South Central Los Angeles has erupted into one of the worst gang feuds ever. More than twenty-five people have already fallen, and rumor has it that the gangs have a stated goal to take 100 lives in 100 days. Don't these Black Lives Matter, too? What is the word on the street? What should people do? Jae Iglesia and Mr. Pearson will talk to Stoop Lo and All Day; members of the rap group Reservoir Dogs, former and future hosts of the Underboss Reservoir Radio Show, and residents of the current targeted area--in The Barbershop!

In 1970, 70.3% of African-Americans between the ages of 20 and 54 were married. In 2008, it was less than 39.6%, according to the National Center on African American Marriages and Parenting. In 1960, 22% of African-American kids grew up in single-parent homes. As of 2013, 55% grew up without two parents. The breakdown of the black family is even greater than before. Join us in discussing African American Culture and how families have been impacted.
I'll discuss the recent shooting of African Americans over the last year by police people (Omar Edwards, Sandra Bland, Samuel Dubois, and Honathan Sanders). Also the concept of black lives matter.
In his 1903 book "The Souls of Black Folk", W.E.B. Dubois introduced the concept of double conciousness. It's the idea that blacks find it difficult to find identity in a majority white world. This refrain is revisited in the Black Lives Matter movement today. This is even more apparent in black churches where theologies are conflicting with praxis on contemporary issues. How can the black clergy and leadership address this double conciousness while empowering believers to be "one body with many members?" Join Pastor Neal for this and other topics of the day.
Rachel Dolezal of the NAACP and the issue of racial identity, Jeb Bush enters the race for the Repubican nomination, escaped convicts and the prison worker who helped them escape, Hillary's speech draws thousands, and more topics to be discussed. See you @ 6 PM Central
