SORT BY Relevancy
Today we will discuss which actors have the best resumes. For example playing Darth Vader is a bigger deal than playing the lead in a movie that no one knows. If you can't remember the character's name, it probably isn't a big role. Johnny Depp, Sam Jackson, Harrison Ford, Brad Pitt, Tom Hanks, and others will be discussed and debated. Who has the best character resume? We will also discuss how one of us broke bones yesterday. We may even throw in some other stuff like eating burritos and smelling flowers.
According to research conducted by The Ladders, it takes recruiters an average of six seconds before they make the initial fit or no fit decision based on resumes.

Continuing our discussion on the state of the Black family...Women's roles in relationships and a household are major. They are the bearers of life, the nurturers, the soft balance in a hard situation, and in essence...the first link to love for all of the people in their lives. When a woman is not at her best, balance is thrown off, because of the many hats she wears, love is always at the base. In today's society, women are harder, "independent", misfocused, and on another path. Parental love and intimate love are addressed as companionship and hook-ups, as women's resourcefulness and perserverance abilities have been beaten down by the many beasts of the modern world. Why do you think Black women have a problem trusting love? Join in tonight by calling 347-32-9967 at 10:30 pm EST.
