    in Entertainment

    THIS WEEK ON THE NDUSTRY, HOSTS AKIA UWANDA AND NICOLE LESTER SPEAK WITH THE PASSIONATE WRITER AND AUTHOR LAKITA GORDON!


    Author of "The Other Side of Addiction: From Terrified to Triumphant," LaKita Gordon was born and raised in Washington, DC. She has been writing since the age of 7. She knew at an early age that she wanted to write, but was afraid. She enjoys writing songs, poetry, and has a passion to share her story with the world. She was always interested in inspiring others to reach their full potential. LaKita was afraid to write her story because she came from a family that believed in keeping their business inside of the walls of their home. LaKita has written poetry, which was submitted to the National Poetry Society, she has assisted in writing school plays, yearbook committee entries in High School, and hopes to write an inspirational column for newspapers. Her book was published in February 2014 and was written with the purpose of being the voice of those who were abused, neglected, felt alone and in fear, although she was never an addict. She enjoys creative writing and was always told by numerous professor's, teacher's, friend's and family members that she has "a way with words," and can take a sentence and turn it into a paragraph. LaKita has a passion for words and for how they are used, and desires to write and publish numerous inspirational and self-help books.

    power of perception with writer Tannis Laidlaw

    in Spirituality

    Bio for Tannis Laidlaw


    Tannis was born in Canada then emigrated to New Zealand to do various degrees in Psychology/Psychiatry. She started writing early (a soppy poem published in her High School Yearbook) but quickly turned to academic writing. Some sixty publications on, she began the fun of writing fiction.


     


    In the meantime, she worked as an OT, a psychologist or a researcher in large mental hospitals or universities, in community psychiatry, in forensic psychology, and in private practice.


     


    Somehow she accumulated eight novels on her hard drive before she thought some might be publishable. Recently her agent has found her a publisher, and she now has a contract to write two murder mysteries. She published PUMPKIN EATER with a small NZ publisher, then self-published BYE BABY BUNTING and recently HALF TRUTHS AND WHOLE LIES.


     


    PUMPKIN EATER is the story of the aftermath of a woman who snapped, a woman who was both physically and emotionally abused in the past, who broke away from her awful husband by throwing him down the stairs leaving him in a pool of blood, then escaping. Great fun to write!


     


    BYE BABY BUNTING centres around a young university student who becomes an ‘unwed mother’, is pressured to give up her baby for adoption, then steals her back again. Like PUMPKIN EATER, this is a psychological thriller.


     


    HALF TRUTHS AND WHOLE LIES takes place in an English medical school where our protagonist has been head-hunted to lead a research team. She encounters a bully for a boss, a woman who will stop at nothing to gain the prestige she wants. Workplace bullies have long fascinated Tannis…


     


     She also wrote and published CUT THE CARBS, CUT THE GUT, a review, put into layman’s language, of the science behind a largely unacknowledged diet for health and weight loss.

    Facebook and Native Americans Names

    in Politics

     


    To reestablish a Facebook account after being accused of using a fake name, users must submit one government-issued ID such as a birth certificate, passport or voter identification card or two other forms of identification such as library card and a yearbook photo. The company appears to have been questioning certain Native users since at least 2009, when it deactivated Parmelee Kills The Enemy’s account. More recently, on Indigenous Peoples’ Day, Facebook deleted a number of Native accounts. In one case, the company asked users Shane and Jacqui Creepingbear for identification to prove that they weren’t using fake names.Facebook’s 10-year-old real-name policy stipulates that users “provide the name they use in real life.” However, the social network doesn’t require people to use their legal names, according to an open letter the company’s chief product officer, Chris Cox, posted last October. In the letter Cox apologizes to ”drag queens, drag kings, transgender [people], and [to the] extensive community of our friends, neighbors and members of the LGBT community” whose accounts had been shut down after a user reported hundreds of them as fake. At press time no such apology has been issued to Natives. Colourlines

    THE POWER OF SMILING:

    George Eliot: “It’s never too late to become the person you could have been.”

    I believe that a smile is something that helps us become the person that we can be.

    A smile is something you can give to our fellow man.

    SOME FACTS TO SMILE ABOUT:

    After weeks of testing the appearance, personality, and attitudes of subjects and their influence on others, professors at Yale University discovered that a smile is the single most powerful force of influence that people have.

    In a famous yearbook study, they tracked the lives of women who had the best smiles in yearbook photos compared to the rest. Women who smiled the most lived happier lives, happier marriages and had fewer setbacks.

    The baseball card study also found a clear correlation between how big a smile someone made on a baseball card photo and how long they would live. The people who smiled the most turned out to live 7 years longer than those who didn’t.

     Children smile over 400 times per day.
    Happy people
