How We Do It Wednesday EXCLUSIVE! Host: Mz MindFull Jordan, interviews NEW YORK TIMES-Best Selling Author: OMAR TYREE
Omar Tyree's BIO: After transferring to Howard University in Washington, DC, where he graduated from the School of Communications with a degree in Print Journalism, Tyree worked as a reporter and writer to make ends meet, before deciding to borrow money from family and friends to start his own publishing company, MARS Productions. Using the bare living room of his one-bedroom apartment in Hyattsville, Maryland as a storage facility, Tyree sold more than twenty-five thousand copies of his books on Greyhound bus trips, before buying a Ford Probe hatchback, where he could distribute ten boxes of books from his car to sell at book events and book stores.
After developing a cult following in the Mid-Atlantic region from Virginia Beach to New York City, Tyree continued to write a book a year and develop a mostly word-of-mouth marketing campaign that eventually led to the doors of publishing powerhouse Simon & Schuster. Tyree then became—at age twenty-six—one of the youngest authors of the explosive 1990s to sign four consecutive book deals worth millions of dollars.
Tyree is currently optioning and producing several of his early titles as stage plays, television shows and feature films. But he is most excited by this long-awaited opportunity to develop The Traveler series with Koehler Books from the ground up with No Turning Back in ebook form this January 2013, before releasing the first traditional title, Welcome to Dubai next fall.
October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and we will recognize it today with Antoinette Sedillo Lopez, a professor on the law faculty at the University of New Mexico.
"In the first major global review of violence against women, a report released in June 2013 found that 30 percent of women reported having been physically or sexually assaulted by a former or current partner. The head of the World Health Organization, Dr. Margaret Chan, called it “a global health problem of epidemic proportions,” and other experts said screening for domestic violence should be added to all levels of health care. Among the findings: 40 percent of women killed worldwide were slain by a partner" (NYTimes.com, June 20, 2013).
“We are looking at ways to counter the rise of an ideological brand of conservatism that, for lack of a better word, is more anti-establishment than it has been in the past,” said David French, the top lobbyist at the National Retail Federation. “We have come to the conclusion that sitting on the sidelines is not good enough.”
Let's not forget what the ShutDown is doing to the American People!
Some warned that a default could spur a shift in the relationship between the corporate world and the Republican Party. Long intertwined by mutual self-interest on deregulation and lower taxes, the business lobby and Republicans are diverging not only over the fiscal crisis, but on other major issues like immigration reform, which was favored by business groups and party leaders but stymied in the House by many of the same lawmakers now leading the debt fight.
Joe Echevarria, the chief executive of Deloitte, the accounting and consulting firm, said, “I’m a Republican by definition and by registration, but the party seems to have split into two factions.” the ropes.

Weekly live webcast/podcast devoted to discussion of news and politics from the perspective of Ayn Rand's philosophy, Objectivism. Hosted by Amy Peikoff.
A recent Fox News poll says that only 8% of Americans believe that "the people are in charge of the government." And, while the Constitution says the House has the power of the purse, Obama seems to think they should provide unlimited funding for him to create his egalitarian utopia. One NYT columnist is even urging Obama to ignore the rule of law and unilaterally raise the debt ceiling if the House Republicans demand concessions from him.
I don't know about you, but I find this attitude unacceptable. Join in on the discussion today, either by phone or in the chat room. Or, if you're listening to a podcast recording, chime in on my blog at www.dontletitgo.com.
Today we'll also discuss the Common Core, a program that entails the Federal Government taking more control over the education of our children. And more. Check my blog at www.dontletitgo.com for Program Notes, to be posted about an hour before the show goes live.

Start your week off right with Vince in the Bay!! It's Manic Monday. As the world continues to devolve into chaos, at least seems so if you watch the news or Twitter, we try to make sense of it all.
Today Peter Ludlow wrote a NYT piece on civil disobedience in the digital age. He touched on the cases of Aaron Swartz, Jeremy Hammond, Bradley/Chelsea Manning, and Edward Snowden. Agree with them or not, these individuals sacraficed their lives for what they deemed a greater common good.
However many supporters of these individuals seem to believe they deserve some sort of immunity from their crimes because they were either entrapped and/or exposing larger malfeasance by government and corporate institutions.
Should these whistle blowers be prosecuted to the full extent of the law? Should they be aquitted of their crimes because they help the greater good? These questions and more will be raised tonight! Call in!
