    'Keys for Success Monday" Being a Black Entrepreneur in America

    in Finance

    Regardless of race or ethnicity, entrepreneurs always begin at a disadvantage. However, blacks tend to need to reach levels of traction with our own money, since seed money is often unavailable. Worst of all, the sentiment against business owners comes from the top. Immediately after his State of the Union speech, President Obama embarked on a shame tour, giving speeches about how American workers are paid too little. Put aside that these companies employ people at a time of disturbingly high joblessness. Rather, the president and his union allies targeted businesses by promoting policies like higher minimum wages, even though there is no correlation that higher wages lead to job growth. One can make an easy argument that the opposite is true, but business owners have become the easy target. They must be wealthy, and therefore must be hurting our fellow citizens. Successful people know that they need to start Monday on a high note, so they take time on Sunday to plan ahead for the week. Set aside some time for yourself to check in on your schedule for the week ahead so that you know exactly what needs to be done first thing Monday morning. Make a list of events, meetings, or important things you need to do to keep momentum toward your goals. Another great idea is to make an "I did" list of things that you accomplished in the last week--this will keep you motivated and excited about pushing forward.

It usually starts with one or more small, round, smooth patches on the scalp and can progress to total scalp hair loss (alopecia totalis) or complete body hair loss (alopecia universalis).

    Why Do Black Men Prefer Light Skinned Women? With Guest Rashida Strober

    in Culture

    We have a very good topic tonight and guest Activist, Rashida Strober. She has come under fire for these words: 


    “Well, well, well would you looky here. ANOTHER FAKE CONSCIOUS MUTHER F-KER EXPOSED. I will never support him nor his music with one dime of my money and encourage all dark skinned women not to either!” she wrote.


    Strober’s comments gained traction with folks who either fully support the “Dark Skin Is Beautiful” campaign founder or didn’t share her views on Lamar. In response to her nonsupporters, Strober posted the following response:


    I see calling out and exposing self hating fake black men who speak about consciousness but date and marry NON DARK SKIN WOMEN brought you haters to my page. WELL SHARE THIS MUTHERFUKING POST!!! These type of fake coons are the worst of the worst. DARK SKIN is the essence of true blackness and if these fakers were really and truly conscious they would MARRY DARK SKINNED WOMEN!!! You pissed ?? GOOD!!!


    Since 1998, Rashida Strober has been known as an advocate for people with darker complexions, according to her biography, which mentioned that her cause was inspired after years of bullying from classmates who put her down because of her complexion. Stage plays created by the Florida native include “A Dark-Skinned Woman’s Revenge” and “Ice Cream Lady’s Dream.”

    Live Reggae Round Round Table chat: R.I.P. Record Store Day or can it be saved?

    in Music

    R.I.P. Record Store Day or can it be saved?Let me preface this post by stating that I LOVE Record Stores.  I WANT Record Stores to succeed.  I LOVE the spirit that Record Store Day originally championed.  I don't want Record Store Day to go away, but there are too many glaring issues that stores don't get to publicly mention and I've been asked to help be a voice for those that are afraid to speak up, for fear of retribution.    
    Ever since March 20th, when the official lists for Record Store Day have come out, you've seen some minor rumblings of a backlash towards Record Store Day.  It has started to gain traction, received national attention and was very upsetting to those behind Record Store Day.  But the problem is, if this stuff doesn't get discussed, how else can it get out?  Not everything can or should be discussed behind closed doors--sometimes transparency is needed.
    I made a post last year about some tweaks that were needed for Record Store Day here.  Because in talking to as many stores as I do, I could see this coming.  I was hoping that some of these issues would be fixed, but sadly we are now at the end of the road and two things are getting ready to happen:

    a) Record Store Day is going to kill itself due to abundance of product b) Record Store Day is going to be abandoned by the very stores/artists/labels it was setup to promote

    So what are some of the fundamental problems going on in the industry that will help kill Record Store Day:http://new-vinyl.blogspot.com/2014/04/rip-record-store-day-or-can-it-be-saved.html

    Computer America - Vivaldi ; TL;DR!

    in Technology

    Computer America


    Hour one:
    Vivaldi, Jon S. von Tetzchner, CEO.


    In 1994, two programmers started working on a web browser. Their idea was to make a really fast browser, capable of running on limited hardware, keeping in mind that users are individuals with their own requirements and wishes. Opera was born. Their little piece of software gained traction, our group grew and a community was created. They stayed close to their users and to their roots. They kept improving their software, based on their users feedback, as well as our their ideas on how to make a great browser. They innovated and they strove for excellence.


    Fast forward to 2015, the browser they once loved has changed its direction. Sadly, it is no longer serving its community of users and contributors who helped build the browser in the first place. So they came to a natural conclusion:  They must make a new browser.  A browser for themselves and a browser for their friends. A browser that is fast, but also a browser that is rich in functionality, highly flexible and puts the user first. A browser that is made for you:  Vivaldi!

    Hour two:
    TL;DR, Ami Ben-david, CEO


    TL;DR gives you the summary, the synopsis, the main contention and the entire idea in one simple paragraph. Enough to get you to skim them. Browse a week’s worth of topics in a few minutes. So you don’t have to say, “Too Long; Didn’t Read”. TL;DR is the news, but faster. TL;DR pulls the news from popular sites. And they have fun while they’re at it.
