    For over 30 years she freed almost 1000 enslaved people and helped them settle into these new Maroon communities. 


    Nestled in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica is a small community known as Moore Town. It is also known as Nanny Maroon Town as it became home to Queen Nanny and her ancestors of the Maroons!


    The Nanny defeated the British forces that enslaved them in many battles. Despite repeated attacks from the British soldiers on Grandy Nanny’s settlement which was formed in her honor and called Nanny Town, it remained under Maroon control for years with successful defenses.


    Nanny of the Maroons is hailed as the true Queen of Jamaica. From the Ivory Coast in Africa, Nanny and her brothers found themselves in Jamaica during the 1800’s during a period of slavery and wars. During this time Nanny cunningly outwitted the British soldiers rescued and freed slaves and refused to sign any agreement to return run away slaves.

    Adam Sandlers' Nanny Claims He Treated Her Like a Slave!

    in Politics

    Deanne McDonald must repay the money she got for agreeing to remain tight-lipped about the actor Adam Sandler.


    A court has ordered Deanne McDonald who was hired as a nanny in 2009 to pay back $80,000 in damages after she accused him of treating her like a slave. Sandler then paid McDonald $48,000, as well as a further $29,000 to her attorneys to make the matter go away and she signed a confidentiality agreement.


    However despite agreeing not to speak about the matter, last year she changed her mind and tried to file a lawsuit. But an arbitrator quickly ruled she was in violation of the confidentiality agreement by repudiating it, disclosing confidential information and threatening to sue and an appeal’s court told her to pay back the $80,000 Sandler had paid to keep her quiet.


    The US Justice System is broken!  We can refer to race, but also we must take into account the differences between the RICH and POOR.



    The arrest rate of African American youth is nearly two times that of white youth.  African American youth are 1.4 times more likely to be detained than white youth arrested for the same crimes, and are twice as likely to be transferred to adult court.
    African American youth are 10 times more likely than their white peers to be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.  This is just one example of disparities in sentencing.  African Americans of all ages are given sentences twice as long as whites.
    African Americans make up more than half (56.1%) of youth sentenced to life without parole.  This is almost identical to the disparity seen among the overall population sentenced to life without parole, where 56.4% are African American.

    Heart2Heart Radio with Michael Brooks and Carina Ghionzoli – Premiere

    in Motivation

    Join Carina and I tonight for a special “At the Movies” edition of Heart2Heart Radio (#Heart2HeartRadio) previously So Random Saturday tonight at a special time, 10:00 PM MST on the Coach on Fire Radio Network (#CoachonFireRadio).


    The Movie?


    Walt Disney's Saving Mr. Banks.


    In addition to being a wonderful movie with incredible performances by Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson, there are lots of great lessons for life, love and business we can learn from the film. What would a Disney movie be without that?


    In a lively fun discussion and a catchy sing a long tune or two, we will explore the lessons embedded in this brilliant Disney feature.


    For those of you that don't know the story or have not seen the film. Walt Disney's daughters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, P.L. Travers' Mary Poppins (1964), he made them a promise - one that he didn't realize would take 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up an insanely difficult writer who is not about to let her beloved magical nanny get mauled by Hollywood. But Travers finds herself all but broke and reluctantly travels to LA to meet with Walt. For weeks in 1961, Disney pulls out all the stops, armed with imaginative storyboards and chirpy songs. But Mrs. Travers doesn't budge. The rights begin to move look like they might slip away forever. It is only when Walt reaches into his own childhood that he discovers the truth about the ghosts that haunt her, and together they set Mary Poppins free to ultimately make one of the most endearing films in cinematic history – Mary Poppins

    30-On The Record: You Only Fail When You Quit

    in Business

    Tracy Newman started playing guitar at 14 with dreams of becoming a folk singer.  In the early 70s, she joined an improvisation class taught by Gary Austin, which became The Groundlings.   Tracy is a founding member, and besides being in the show, she began teaching and directing there. Her sister, Laraine Newman was the first Groundling to be discovered there by Lorne Michaels for Saturday Night Live.


    It was at the Groundlings that Tracy met her future TV writing partner, Jonathan Stark. They started on Cheers, and worked on many shows, including Bob (Bob Newhart), The Nanny, Ellen, The Drew Carey Show and Hiller and Diller (Richard Lewis and Kevin Nealon.)


    In 1997, they won the Emmy and the prestigious Peabody Award for writing the ground-breaking -coming out- episode of Ellen. In 2001, they created the ABC comedy, According to Jim, which recently completed it’s eighth and final season of production.


    Tracy has been writing songs all along and is once again performing full-time. She has three CDs:  “A Place in the Sun,” “I Just See You” and “I Can Swing Forever,” (which is for children).
