SORT BY Relevancy
SPONSORED BY MARK PITTMAN--The high profile case of Ravens' running back Ray Rice has sparked quite a bit of hype across the nation. The court of public opinion, the propaganda of the media outlets, the division of race and gender conflicts among other factors have turned this case into a circus that has opened the floor to address every other problem detail except the root problem--DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. The legal system on a whole treats domestic violence far less intensely than it should, and throw in the "superstars will be superstars" mentality and you now have a larger victim pool of untreated and unpunished cases that continue to slip through the cracks without offering a solution to this problem. Join intonight as we put the distractions from the problem on the hot seat. Call 347-327-9967 at 10:30 pm EST to join in the discussion.
The Kansas City Chiefs were yet another strange team in 2014, going from 0-2 to 7-3, then laying an egg to Oakland (even though they scored 20 points) & ultimately falling out of the AFC playoff picture. But the big story was safety Eric Berry's health. After that loss to the Raiders, he received an X-ray which revealed a mass in his chest believed to be lymphoma. He was placed on the non-football illness list, ending his season. A month later, Berry was confirmed to have Hodgskin's lymphoma. He has begun treatment & many of us are wishing him a strong recovery. My prayers have been & will be w/ him during this time. The Chiefs have made some moves during the off-season, bringing in free agents such as wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (reuniting w/ Jason Avant from Philadelphia) & safety Tyvon Branch. The pressure continues to be on head coach Andy Reid. He's been expected to make a Super Bowl run w/ this team & that hasn't happened. & he has yet to win a Super Bowl, pinning him on the list of one of the greatest coaches in league history to not accomplish the feat. Some fans have started to lost patience. Something's gotta give, right? I hope for the sake of Reid that this team finally turns to corner in 2015. It's been a long time coming since the franchise's last Super Bowl triumph (Super Bowl III), but Arrowhead remains one of the toughest places to play of opponents & as long as you have great fans supporting your team, you'll always have a shot to accomplish wins, divison titles, & maybe even a Lombardi trophy. This team still has work to do, but it looks like they're heading in the right direction. How far can & will they go? We'll discuss that as well as Eric Berry in our next installment of "The Rocket Sports Breakdown" Friday evening @ 6:30pm on Blog Talk Radio. Rocket Nation, get ready for a power trip.
Dani DiPirro is an author, blogger, and designer living in a suburb of Washington, DC. In 2009, Dani launched the website PositivelyPresent.com with the intention of sharing her insights about living a positive and present life (something that didn’t always come easy to her!). Anything and everything focused on positive personal development has a home on Positively Present including: tips for being more positive; advice for living in the moment; articles on how positivity can improve you; information on positive personal development; insights on how to share positivity with others; and resources and inspiration for being positively present.
In 2012, Dani left her full-time job in Marketing to pursue a career with Positively Present.

Dani has also created e-books on specific topics such as self-love, holiday planning, and organization. She is currently working on her next book.
While expanding her career as an author and blogger, Dani also began learning about graphic design and illustration. In 2012, she took her first Nicole’s Classes course online and fell in love with creating illustrations, typography, and design. She has since launched a design studio, Twenty3, in which she creates downloadable content on Etsy, designs products for Society 6, and works with individuals and businesses to help create modern, uplifting illustrations and designs.
When she’s not designing, blogging, or writing, Dani can be found with her head in a book (check out what she’s reading on GoodReads), creating images for Instagram (follow her on @positivelypresent), or pinning like a madwoman (take a peek at her Pinterest boards).
One of the principles that guides my own writing is pluralism. The idea of building something large enough that it has its own natural diversity and not pinning everything on one character or idea that needs to connect with everyone.
I'll be exploring good examples of this as well as talk over the principles that serve as a foundation to this.
