    Black Thoughts and Theory: The Radio Show- Great Black Inventors & Inventions

    in Culture

    Black Inventors, Inventions & Innovations 


    We were taught that George Washington Carver invented peanut butter, that's probably not true considering the fact that the Aztecs were eating it back in the 15th century. But did you know that brother Carver invented 300 or so uses for the peanut itself? He issued bulletins to farmers and housewives explaining how to use peanuts to make soap, face creams, axle grease, insecticides, glue, medicines and charcoal. He even made paper from peanuts.


    Join us, Alex, Asha, and Zhe, Thursday August 27 at 9 PM EST as we discuss great Melanated Inventors, Inventions and Innovations that have impacted and improved our world. 


    Spoken language, the written word, and the smooth transmission of electricity are all inventions or innovations of the Melanated man. Traffic lights, the gas mask, the modern pacemaker, and even the video game are innovations of the Black man. And this is the short list. So you don't want to miss this informative episode.


    Plus, brother Dennis Jefferson will be dropping by with another episode of Healthy Matters, improving the health of the Melanated Family one week at a time.


    You can call-in to speak with your Hosts at (917)889-2830


    OR


    You can tune-in here and listen LIVE.


    And as always keep it real and keep it on point.

    Conversations with Sapphire JBlue and Author Kendra Reeves - "The Crush"

    in Writing

    Composed and confident, Sofie Roberts is thrown for a loop when she runs into the one man who makes her feel like the weak-kneed, starry-eyed young girl she’d been years before—her childhood crush, Bryant Lewis. Seeing him all these years later makes her realize the feelings she’d had for him are still as strong as they were back then. 
    Bryant Lewis is surprised and impressed when he has a chance encounter with Sofie Roberts. She is no longer the shy, quiet girl he remembers from the neighborhood. She has grown into a sexy, confident woman. The attraction he felt from the moment he bumped into her was something he couldn’t deny. 
    Now that she is an adult and has the opportunity to tell Bryant her secret will Sofie take the risk of being rejected and embarrassed, or should she just let the old crush be just that—her secret? 
    Bryant has been stung—painfully—by a woman in the past. He isn’t looking for anything serious, but the electricity that sizzles between him and Sofie is something that can’t be ignored. Is he willing to move act on that attraction? 
    What happens when two people make a connection? When the desire that burns between them becomes so hot that sparks begin to jump? Will the crush be the start of a journey of desire and seduction, or will Sofie and Bryant let their fears and past hurts keep them from exploring where this chance encounter could take them? 

  • The Impact on Business of Deregulation: The Case of Energy

    in Business

    On August 19, my guest will be Susan Mazonson, an independent associate with Viridian Energy.   She is an expert at building wealth by spotting trends and industry developments. 


    Her career began as one of the first female college hires at AT&T, part of the “high potential” management program.   Subsequently, she was recruited to lead the charge of New Business Development for the second largest US telecom equipment manufacturer.  There, she created the business plan for the infrastructure to power the emerging U.S. cellular radio networks, referred to today as mobile or wireless. 


    When deregulation of the telecom industry occurred, Susan leveraged that by starting two boutique consulting firms, advising incumbent carriers on how to compete in this new paradigm shift of competition, innovation, and technological advancement.  Among her clients were AT&T, Verizon, Alcatel-Lucent, all the Bell Operating Companies, and many other market entrants creating new niches.


    After riding the telecom deregulation wave for nearly 30 years, Susan recognized that the deregulation of the energy sector was the next “once ever” opportunity to not only create substantial wealth, but at the same time, do good for the environment.   She now offers simple, innovative, renewable energy solutions for consumers and businesses.  And she trains, mentors and coaches business professionals and entrepreneurs to create a part-time, recession-proof, passive, residual income, by sharing the benefits of choosing renewable energy options.


    Susan has a B.S. degree in Applied Mathematics from Brown University and an MBA in Marketing and Finance from University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business.

    BEST DEALS RADIO ( SAVINGS DISCOUNTS)

    in Podcasting

    When it comes to money, every little bit adds up. That's what everyone always says, but everyone also has their limits.


    For instance, if you see a penny on the ground, these days, you wouldn't necessarily pick it up, even though, hey, it's free money.


    You've probably also heard a dozen times the tired but true advice that if you gave up your daily drink from the local coffeehouse, you could save well over a thousand dollars a year.


    There are all sorts of money-stretching strategies we can do — but probably don't. If you're looking for little ways to improve the health of your bank account, here are five ways you could get some more bang for your buck, if only you had more time or energy.


    Unplug electronics.


    While lights are easy enough to remember to switch off, it can be easy to forget (or to feel it's not worth the bother) that you could also be unplugging your laptop, your PC, your DVD player, your microwave oven, cellphone charger and an array of other electronics when you aren't using them. Because your electronics, when plugged in and turned off, are still using electricity.

  • Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Chris McNulty!

    in Music

    This is the third visit from our most awesome and talented friend, Chris McNulty.  If I had my way, she'd be with me on almost every occasion.  But this woman has been blissfully busy - and part of that has to do with enjoying the success of her latest project, released in March.


    "Eternal" is the seventh album from Our Beautiful Wonder From Down Under (she'll love that!).  And it's full of the most sincere readings of timeless lyrics that you could possibly conjure.  Chris has been singing Jazz with utmost clarity for a long time, but losing her son in 2011 took a toll that catapulted her in many directions.  When she was able to surface, her voice took on a new and raw honesty.  Her work had garnered attention with "The Song That Sings You Here" in her native Australia.  She won the prestigious Bell Award there in 2013.  The attention has grown enormously since that time.  Which brings us to this new musical chapter.


    In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in 2012, Chris found herself with no electricity, heat or water in New York - the city she adopted when she moved to the States in the 80's.  In the cold solitude of that reality, the formation of "Eternal" was born. Contemplation of sorrow, forcing hope into the pain, feeling a myriad of emotions so strong that they had to be conveyed....this is what Chris needed to give to us.  Sharing loss this personal, yes.  But striving to enable a common bond.  And one of the most important: faith in the knowledge that love transcends ALL.  Love brings us home.  


    "Eternal" has been lauded by some of the sharpest critics on the scene - each one, almost overcome with praise.  Because the truth is in Chris McNulty's interpretation at every instances.  Each song becomes HERS.  Hear a gifted artist at her peak. Join us on 8/18 at 2 p.m. ET.
