In the MYTH WARRIORS™ series we are targeting ideas to begin to assess whether they are credible or not (i.e., they are a myth, fallacy or even a lie). The target for this episode is,
“Attractive people make more money than unattractive people!”
- “Why do you think beautiful people earn more? Hamermesh: People may more attention to them, listen to them better.” (http://www.cbsnews.com/news/how-your-looks-affect-your-salary/)
- “People who were rated as good-looking made more money, were better educated, and were more confident. But a person’s intelligence affected their income more than their looks did. […T]he effects of self-concept are particularly noteworthy. Its effects on income are stronger than those of attractiveness and nearly as strong as those of intelligence (http://www.webmd.com/beauty/20090520/want-a-higher-salary-get-brains-beauty)
- “Attractive people earn about 5 percent more in hourly pay than their average-looking colleagues, who in turn earn 9 percent more per hour than the plainest-looking workers. […] Researchers Markus Mobius and Tanya Rosenblat found that confidence makes up 20 percent of perceived attractiveness.” (http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/Careers/02/28/cb.pretty/)
- ““Women feel that beauty is inherently important,” says Daniel Hamermesh, a University of Texas at Austin labor economist and the study’s lead author. “They just feel bad if they’re ugly.” […] Hamermesh is the acknowledged father of pulchronomics, or the economic study of beauty.” (http://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/how-much-is-being-attractive-worth-80414787/#hYuHTU1Mki869HWF.99)
- “To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.” ? Thích Nh?t H?nh

Did you miss The Noir Unicorn in the Room | Battle of the Sexes: "I don't date Black Women" ?
Get into The Mix on Noir Unicorn Radio as the co-host of the event, Ben " @bigteflon " Walton & I do a recap of the event and talk about how we REALLY feel about the responses!
In the year 2014, we as Black People have made social progress by uniting together to protest against racial injustice, but even in the midst of Black unity, there is a major lack of support from Black Men towards Black Women. When numerous articles are deeming Black Women as the most "unattractive race" and faced with different forms of prejudice daily by other races, we look to the men of our own race for solidarity and validation. Not only are Black Women told that we are "un-dateable" by the men that resemble our fathers and brothers, but it is done with a proud smile on their faces.
It is only necessary that we address the trending statement, "I don't date Black Women."
Every Friday night you can find us getting down and dirty and tapping into our "Bad Girl" and "Bad Boy" sides. We will discuss several topics and take calls from the listeners. Sometimes our topics are not for the faint at heart. You can leave inhabtions at the door. This not for the prude in you.. So sit back relax and lets get into a little trouble together.
Tonight on the show we will discuss the ups and downs of online daing websittes; what makes a person unattractive, and how long should it take to get over someone. Somewhere in there will be some sex. Heck when adults do adult things there is always sex...

Welcome my good friend and creator of "Hug Wraps" back to HTH!
HTH welcomes Brenda Jones founder/designer of *HugWraps* these beautiful garments are alternatives to those unattractive hospital gowns made for cancer patients to wear during their various treatments. Brenda Jones felt as if her world had ended when she was diagnosed with breast cancer back in October 2008. Being forced to put on a drab, generic, embarrassing traditional hospital gown every time she went in for treatment only made the experience worse. So with a flash of inspiration — and a crash-course in sewing — she decided to do something about it. Much to her surprise, the kimono-style wrap she designed to give herself some dignity in the waiting room started garnering requests from other patients. Today? She's not only recovered, but she can hardly keep up with the demand for her homemade Hug Wraps from cancer patients all over the world Check out this dynamic ladies site: http://www.hugwraps.org/index.html

Welcome to Harmony Keys! Thanks for stopping by to hear about relationship issues that affect all of us at one time or another.
Calling someone a Dumb-A, or any unattractive label, is a form of passive abuse. If another person pins a label on you, it may feel like you were punched in the stomach. The wind goes out of your sail. Your heart sinks. Even if there is no physical contact involved, verbal abuse can be devastating.
In this episode, Dr. Joan gives an example of name-calling and offers two basic pointers that might help you, dear listener. If you are experiencing name-calling in one of your relationships with a neighbor, with a family member, with a friend, or with a co-worker, or with anyone else, please tune in. Her pointers may surprise you.
A portion of each program is devoted to the reading of Dr. Joan's writings on relationship issues. She is currently reading from her debut novel Gra Im Thu! I Love You!, a story about two Irish families who move to Utah in the early 20th Century. Listen to the dramatic dilemmas that the families face and conquer.
On with the discussion!
This week you will find out how eliminating wheat from our diets can prevent fat storage, shrink unsightly bulges, and reverse myriad health problems. Every day, over 200 million Americans consume food products made of wheat. As a result, over 100 million of them experience some form of adverse health effect, ranging from minor rashes and high blood sugar to the unattractive stomach bulges that preventive cardiologist William Davis calls “wheat bellies.” According to my guest this week, Dr. Davis, excess fat has nothing to do with gluttony, sloth, or too much butter: It’s due to the whole grain wraps we eat for lunch. After witnessing over 2,000 patients regain their health after giving up wheat, Davis reached the disturbing conclusion that wheat is the single largest contributor to the nationwide obesity epidemic—and its elimination is key to dramatic weight loss and optimal health. Tune in to find out how you can transform your life without wheat.
William Davis, MD, is a preventive cardiologist whose unique approach to diet allows him to advocate reversal, not just prevention, of heart disease. He is the founder of the Track Your Plaque program. He lives and practice cardiology in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. For more information on Dr. Davis, please visit: www.WheatBellyBlog.com
Okay here's the deal. When women brag about being able to buy everything for themselves is it because they have to ? Should the slogan "I don't need a man " be changed to "I can't get a man" ?
Ouch ! that hit a sore spot !
Tune in on Friday, it'll be a trip !

Kevin Guz of HomeVestors-Dallas discusses the issues involving renovation costs for an investment property. Specifically, he addresses the difference between quick and affordable repairs versus expensive (and necessary) overhauls, which may make it financially unattractive to buy a specific home.
