    Chuck Cooper, Jr. Will Discuss His Legendary Father And His Foundation

    in Sports

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley and Coach Karen Hall will interview Chuck Cooper, Jr. Will Discuss His Legendary Father And His Foundation.

    About the Foundation

    The Chuck Cooper Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit dedicated to honoring the legacy of Chuck Cooper by helping further the education of our young people. The mission of The Chuck Cooper Foundation is to continue the legacy of Charles “Chuck” Cooper, the first African-American drafted into the National Basketball Association, by awarding graduate-level scholarships and by providing comprehensive leadership development, professional skills, and opportunities to underserved students.

    As he approached his graduation from Duquesne in 1950 with a bachelor’s degree in education, Cooper signed on with the famed touring all-black Harlem Globetrotters team. On April 25, 1950, Cooper was selected in the second round of the NBA draft by Boston Celtics owner Walter Brown. When an associate pointed out that Cooper was black, Brown answered that he didn’t care whether Cooper was “striped, plaid, or polka dot.”

    The 6-foot, 5-inch, 200-lb. Cooper made his debut with the Celtics on November 1, 1950, and he went on to produce a strong rookie season. He played in 66 games, averaging 9.5 points and 8.5 rebounds per game and sparking a renaissance in the Celtics’ drooping fortunes. Cooper formed bonds with his teammates, including future Celtics great Bob Cousy, with whom he would sometimes go out in the evening to listen to jazz concerts. During his basketball career, in addition to playing with the Celtics, Cooper also played with the Milwaukee Hawks and the Fort Wayne (Indiana) Pistons. While with the Pistons, he played in the 1956 NBA Championship.

    Only fear dies... Love only ascends! What is the culmination of YOUR life?

    in Paranormal

    Death is proof that individuality does not actually exist. It is also the disparity between what is as what is not- the ego/body gestalt. Death also shows everyone that who has died was lacking a viable and unique spirituality this is the cause of one's death experience. Fear is death. Ascension is and means to rise above, take with, and integrate into. What actually ascends is the body as the love it is. This is true ascension. Anyone leaving the body behind will reincarnate. Death of the body is reincarnation of the soul. Welcome to my point of view.

    Riane Eisler on Caring Equals Prosperity..Partnership Not Domination

    in Women

    As a book-end to last week's show with socialist economist Richard Wolf, I have returning to the show, visionary, author and foremother, Riane Eisler, author of the famous and inspirational books, The Chalice and the Blade and Our Real Wealth.  Riane will discuss caring economics and why corporations would actually benefit from these practices rather than the predator capitalistic values employees have had imposed upon them.  We'll also discuss the topic raised in The Chalice and the Blade, namely "Domination vs Partnership" and the need for the shift toward the latter so there's a better quality of life for the most of us.  We'll chat about SWEIs - new economic indicators that are a better gauge of how people are doing than GDP which fails to show the vast income disparity so many are suffering from.  Riane will talk about the plight of women and the poverty they and their children still face, and not just in third world countries, but here in the United States, which does not bode well for any of our futures if we don't start forcing our political leaders to institute laws that promote REAL family values, and more caring and sharing of our national treasure so that its invested in people and life sustaining practices rather than war and corporate welfare.

    Learn how caring actually equals prosperity and stop drinking the Kool-Aid of trickle down economics!

    Richard Wolf, Economist - Captialism is Killing Us - So What's the Alternative

    in Current Events

    It is my great pleasure this evening to have an enlightening conversation with economist Richard Wolff, recommended by many of you, my listeners!  I was impressed by a wonderful and easy to understand interview Richard gave on PBS about the contemporary economic history of the United States:  how we managed to obtain Social Security, how we're slowly being destroyed by predator capitalism and what we can do to combat the system so we might have better quality of lives.  I know this is a major concern for the 99% as the income disparity widens in our "maturing economy" as what little wealth is made goes to the top 1%.  Tune in tonight and learn how we've been brain-washed to think Capitalism is grand and socialism is evil and what we can do in the short and long term to fix things.  I promise, this will be a conversation everyone will be able to understand - and enjoy!  Call it Economics for Dummies!

    First elected in 1998 to represent California’s then-9th Congressional District (now the 13th), the Democratic lawmaker has established a reputation for principled and independent stands, unafraid to take on the tough issues and speak her mind for her constituents, for a more just America, and for a safer world. As a social worker by profession, she has prioritized advocating for people dealing with the federal bureaucracy.

    She has aggressively represented the needs of the underserved and vulnerable people in her district and throughout the U.S., vigorously advocating for a wide range of social and economic concerns.

    The Congresswoman has been a strong proponent of safe communities, affordable housing, the homeless, low income energy assistance, job training, making health care affordable and universal, just immigration policies, the establishment of a living wage, and protection of the right of women to make decisions about their reproductive health. She is a Senior Democratic Whip, former chair of the Congressional Black Caucus and former co-chair of the Progressive Caucus.
