    in Education

    This is not a broadcast for beginner counter-racists of any age. However, it may be for YOU if you frequently say and/or agree with the statement, "We need to be focused on solutions." Kofi Lion is the founder of World Afropedia, an unequaled online repository of information about black personages and black peoples around the globe and throughout known history. He didn't just talk about the racism with which Wikipedia is saturated. He did something epic about it.

So, we'll be discussing a range of fascinating topics including the digital dark age; bit coin economics; biological xenophilia (love of genes different than one's own), and; Mandombe script's promise for releasing the innovation of the black mind.

    Bridging The Generational Divide

    in Business

    Denise Griffitts Interviews global business adviser and the foremost authority on generational issues and workforce culture strategies Brad Szollose.


    Has anyone noticed that there is a generational divide these days? Today we have 4 very defined Generations working side-by-side. Generation Y are also called Millennials or Digital Natives and working with Baby Boomers and Traditionalists. Ever wonder why this is an issue all of a sudden?


    My guest today is going to help us understand WHY there is such divide and how that impacts your business…both in managing this next generation and in reaching them as a customer.


    Author of the award-winning, international bestseller Liquid Leadership: From Woodstock to Wikipedia, Brad is a former C-level executive of a publicly traded company that he cofounded that went from entrepreneurial start-up to IPO in three years; the first Dot Com Agency to go public on NASDAQ. His company K2 Design, experienced 425% hyper-growth, due in part to a unique management style that won his company the Arthur Andersen NY Enterprise Award for Best Practices in Fostering Innovation.


    But most importantly, Brad is a Millennial Expert and he successfully took his Dot Com company public back in the 90's AND did it by working whit his generation X and Y Employees. Today he is going to share that story with us as well as tips and advice on how to bridge the gap between generations.


    These days, Brad helps smart companies like Dell and MasterCard, understand just how much technology has transformed a new generation, and how that impacts corporate culture, management interaction, expectations, productivity and sales in The Information Age.

But with Serge Ibaka now out for 4-6 weeks, have the Thunder's chances of making the playoffs been shelved as well? The 49ers were looking for Chris Borland to help fill the void that the retirement of Patrick Willis has left; well not so fast.  The Niners are faced with another unexpected retirement.

    Al Gore 2016

    in Politics

    Democrats need a debate about where their party goes next. Obamacare's passage marked the rough completion of the social safety net that liberals began constructing during Franklin Delano Roosevelt's presidency. The end of the Iraq War drained Democrats of their foreign policy fervor. The rapid acceptance of gay marriage has robbed them of the next civil rights fight. There is work left to be done in all these arenas, but over time, the party will need to discover new dreams, much as Republicans have found the Ryan budget
    Al Gore offers a genuinely different view of what the Democratic Party Populism(Populism is a political doctrine that appeals to the interests and conceptions (such as hopes and fears) of the general people, especially contrasting those interests with the interests of the elite. Wikipedia) — and, by extension, American politics — should be about. vOX

    In The Streets with Beverley Smith: The United Police State of America (Ep 21)

    in Politics

    What is up with the police all around the nation? The NYPD changes Wikipedia entries regarding Eric Garner and Sean Bell. The SFPD is texting about "hanging ni**ers from trees". The Ferguson PD may or may not have the right man. The Chicago PD won't come clean about the secret detention center Homan Square. The DOJ says Ferguson police and court system have practiced widespread racial bias and policed for revenue and not for the public good. Nationwide, the police are legally spying on our cell phone calls, emails, tweets, and text messages. And the US Senate advances a new cybersecurity bill, widely criticized as being over-reaching.

    Footwear-Gab1940s

    in Fashion

     



    Gab1930s Footwear


    History of Footwear
    Footwear refers to garments worn on the feet, for fashion, protection against the environment, and adornment. Some cultures chose not to wear footwear, at least in some situations.


    Socks and other hosiery are typically worn between the feet and other footwear, less often with sandals or flip flops (thongs). Footwear is sometimes the subject of sexual fetishism, such as shoe fetishism or boot fetishism.


    Durable shoes are a relatively recent invention, though many ancient civilizations wore ornamental footwear. Many ancient civilizations saw no need for footwear. The Romans saw clothing and footwear as signs of power and status in society, and most Romans wore footwear, while slaves and peasants remained barefoot. The Middle Ages saw the rise of high-heeled shoes, also associated with power, and the desire to look larger than life, and artwork from that period often depicts bare feet as a symbol of poverty. Bare feet are also seen as a sign of humility and respect, and adherents of many religions worship or mourn while barefoot, or remove their shoes as a sign of respect towards someone of higher standing.


    In some cultures, people remove their shoes before entering a home. Some religious communities require people to remove shoes before they enter holy buildings, such as temples.


    Practitioners of the craft of shoemaking are called shoemakers, cobblers, or cordwainers.
