    The Louisiana Gubernatorial Runoff

    in Politics

    From the primary election to the runoff, early voting has increased 47 percent among black voters and 30 percent among white voters. Early voting has also jumped in a number of the larger urban areas -- Caddo/Shreveport (109 percent increase), Orleans (98 percent increase) and East Baton Rouge (88 percent) -- according to Couvillon. That would appear to be good news for state Rep. John Bel Edwards, the Democratic candidate for governor, rather than U.S. Sen. David Vitter, the Republican. Edwards has also been ahead in recent runoff polls. But experts and political operatives warned against drawing too many conclusions from preliminary early voting turnout. The runoff election is a different story. It's expected to be a close election, and Democrats have efforts underway to get people to participate in early voting. The Democratic Party says it has people in every parish working on early voting efforts. After the primary election, the Edwards campaign even said it expected voter turnout to be higher overall in the runoff.NOLA.com

    Charlie Cook says;"this is a make or brake election for the Democratic party in Louisiana'".

  • NBA Live Talk - Episode #106 - Southeast Division Preview

    in Basketball

    It's that time of the year again... The NBA season is right around the corner!!! 

    Over the course of the next six weeks, we will be breaking down each division, providing expert insight and analysis, while offering our predictions for the upcoming 2015-16 season. 

    Kicking off our divisional preview series is the Southeast Division. 

    In 2014-15, the Atlanta Hawks cruised to their first division title since 1994, posting a franchise-best 60 wins in the process. However, with DeMarre Carroll no longer in the ATL, will the Hawks, led by a host of veteran players, be able to replicate their success from last season? 

    The upstart Washington Wizards and Miami Heat will be among the teams vying for the Southeast crown.  Can John Wall vault the Wizards into championship contention?  Is Dwyane Wade poised for a career resurgence in 2015-16? 

    Be sure to tune into NBA Live Talk every Friday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. EST, only on Blog Talk Radio.

    The Louisiana Project- Ten Years Later

    in History

    So many times a disaster will happen and we watch, we talk, we listen, we mourn then we move on to the next disaster. August 29, 2005, we watched in horror as levees broke and men, women, children, families, the homeless and animals perished one after another leaving a total of close to 2000 dead. Katrina affected many lives and we can only image the hurt, lost and misplaced feelings of the thousands of people affected that day. The African-American Community was really affected by this disaster and to this day are affected with memories, lost and emotions that only they can feel. However, that community has proven to be a strong one with rebuilding, relocating and putting their lives in order. Do not get it wrong this ghost will follow them and will raise its ugly head from time to time but it will not define who they are and what they will become. The stories told are not for you to feel sorry for them but for you to understand the journey they had to take in order to be where they are today. Ten years later and the journey made individuals stronger and more determined than ever, to survive. Levilyn Chriss on October 28th, an independent producer out of Chicago of The Louisiana Project will join CWT4R. The Louisiana Project is a documentary that has given some New Orleanians an opportunity to look back and share their personal experiences surrounded by Hurricane Katrina.  Levilyn and her family were also deeply affected by Katrina. On December 1, 2005, when residents were allowed to go into the Lower Ninth Ward, she went into her father's home and was overwhelmed by the stench and damages. While walking through her dad's neighborhood observing the devastation and hearing the cries of many and talking to some of the residents who had become homeless, jobless, and disconnected from normalcy, she realized they needed a voice.
