Recent killings in black communities worldwide, especially in South Sudan, reveal black on black crime is becoming a nuisance even in our backyards here in America and in 2014, "the death tolls are huge and the individual incidents gruesome. One estimate says nearly 10,000 people have been killed in South Sudan in a month of warfare, while in neighboring central African Republic combatants in Muslim vs Christian battles have reported a significant amount of children casualties). The articles say that "compared to decades past, Africa and its people are suffering from fewer conflicts today, but several recent outbreaks are cause for concern" and I say "were people of African ancestry always like this? What happened to Ubuntu, or peace chants of the African people? Or could it have been the case of who gave these people the ammunition and weapons of mass destruction and these weapons ending up in the wrong hands? We know women have played a huge role in bringing solutions, such as the Aba women riot in 1929. However, could the approach they used be considered peaceful? Should it be used today or should explore other traditional practices used?
We believe certain African traditional practices can be applied in our communities today and used to deal with conflicts today .i.e., Bokom-Haram, South Sudan situations. Black on Black crime in America, African American and Black immigrant relationships, relationships among our kind here in America. What do you think?
It's finally time to negotiate a settlement after a car accident. The only expectation at this point, is receiving a fair equitable deal. But is this an unrealistic expectation? How do you know the value of claim? What about the psychological portion of this process? Have expectations been thwarted while going through this journey? There are many games afoot by the end of this Car Accident process. If the goal of most insurance companies is to pay out a little as possible, how can this be an equal playing field? How much of this process is build upon dreams vs. reality? How can you honestly access the people involved and your treatment through this process?
Join me, ESTRA today for a discussion on Auto Accident Settlements, Reality vs. Dream. As you go through this process, be informed and prepared for the end game.
FUTURE SPACE SETTLEMENTS WILL WORK AS CONFEDERACIES PART 1. Our show discusses the politics, the economics and the technology of space advocacy. It is time to discuss the other big question: how should humans govern and organize their social structures in future space settlements. There has been, we assess, an implied assumption that since science is enabling such settlements, that human systems would be top down, based on both authority and scientific competency. But not so fast! The private sector will invest, and be major stakeholders. The rule of law, will demand the courts and the legal system be transposed onto those settlements. Finally, if the settlements are to attract a diverse range of settlers needed to make life tolerable and whole, some democratic freedoms will surely be expected and used as enticements. Just as the founders of America, grappled these questions, we bring the modern reader to those issues, in part one of this series. This show, like all our shows, will be packed with research. Unlike what we recommend here on earth, this show will advance WHY A CONFEDERACY WILL BE DESIREABLE IN FUTURE SPACE SETTLEMENTS. Join K Leslie Graves in American and co-host Sharlene Lopez in Australia as we tackle to critical issues of the next generation of exploration.

With everything going on in the country today we thought that it would be a good idea to have an episode on Police and the community. The police are supposed to be there to make you feel safe, comfortable and protected. However, some members of our communities are scared, in danger and feel unprotected. Some people see the police as the good guys, some view them as the bad guys. We are going to have a great discussion on this today. We will touch on what makes people feel the way they do about the police and how we can improve relationships between community memebers and the police officers who serve them.
We'll talk a little bit about Michael Brown and the others that have been in police involved brutality, shootings or confrontations.
Of course the police will always have people that dislike them (the criminals) because they hinder their plans of breaking the law. However, the police shouldn't have a stigma of not being fair to certain people or have the community scared when they cross paths with an officer.

Chapter 8 and 9, Runaways and Maroons; Revolts in the Age of Revolution,
Breaking The Chains by William L. Katz "will force many readers to reexamine their assumptions about American history… Young readers will be fascinated and better informed for having experienced this book,” wrote School Library Journal. Striking photographs highlight this unknown heritage.”

The story of Maroon communities in the Americas is one of the most important and fascinating chapters in the history of New World societies. However, it is a story that is not well known. Scholarly research and forensic archaeology are increasingly uncovering the evidence of Maroon settlements that have been a part of the US from the 1600s until the 1900s, but were hidden in plain view. Not only is little known about Maroon encampments established throughout the southern US, but our history books include little trace of the agency of Africans, who were forcibly brought to the US and enslaved, but employed military and diplomatic strategies in international relations, represented Native nations in negotiations with the US government, launched cottage industries, and built lasting communities long before the end of the Civil War.
Over Two hundred years ago, while the elite in New Orleans were making their usual preparations for Mardi Gras. Plantation owners were planning all-night parties, and the women of the house were looking forward to elaborate masquerades and balls.
What they didn't know is while they were planning for their annual carnival festivities, their slaves were planning a little something of their own.
On one fateful night, 500 armed slaves rose up from the plantations and set out to conquer the city.
On this week's REPLAY, we will highlight a "Modern-Day Harriett Tubman” who’s work is “leading people out of bondage” of a dark past and shame…

Because the roots of the Christian faith are steeped in Judaism, Bible-believing Christians have always felt an affinity for Israel and the Israeli people. Our Savior came as a descendant of Jews with a message that was first for the Jews and then the Gentiles. The majority of Christians support the right of the Jewish people to have a state of their own and to live in peace like all democratic nations.
When situations such as the current conflict in Israel and Gaza take place, many Christians are unsure of how to respond. While we support Israel's right to defend itself against a terrorist organization launching rockets into its territory, no one likes to hear that over 800 civilians have been killed and over 5,000 people have been wounded -- especially children.
One response is to lay the blame on Israel as the militarily superior nation and side with the Palestinians as those who are less fortunate in this situation. In recent months, some Christian denominations have decided to engage in boycotts, divestments, and sanctions against companies which they say harm Palestinians. For example, last month, the Presbyterian Church decided to pull its investments from three U.S. companies that do business with Israel. The church claims that Caterpillar supplies products to Israel that are used to destroy Palestinian homes, Hewlett-Packard provides logistics and technology to help enforce the naval blockade of Gaza, and Motorola Solutions provides military and surveillance systems in illegal Israeli settlements...

We have discussed the similarities int he histories of our two countries and now I would like to fast forward to what is in the headlines in the US today. I will touch on four areas - the BLM land grabs, the demands for a higher minimum wage, gun control and the influx of illegal aliens.
The South African country already portrays a high unemployment level, and does not have work for its own people, let alone illegal’s. Yet the Zimbabweans have proved to be educated, hard working people, and South Africa benefits from the skilled labor offered by these illegals.
These people were given a partial amnesty by the SA Government, but due to the high levels of unemployment in South Africa, the people of SA were incensed and Xenophobic attacks were the direct result of this action.
Xenophobia in South Africa: Last month, during two weeks in May, 2008, a series of attacks took place all over South Africa. In a clash between the poorest of the poor, gangs of local black South Africans descended on informal settlements and shanty towns, armed with clubs, machetes and torches, and attacked immigrants from Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabawe. Locals accused these immigrants of taking jobs away from them, among other grievances. Over the course of those two weeks, over 60 foreigners were killed, several hundred injured, and many thousands of immigrants are now displaced, or are returning to their home countries. Dealing with the aftermath of the attacks has become a large problem for South Africa - prosecuting attackers, accommodating refugees, dealing with a labor shortage, political damage control, seeking to address root causes, and some soul-searching
