    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1149

    in Self Help

    SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "For Our Kids" - Deborah Maddison and Tracy Baxter, Canadian activists from British Columbia, will join Bill Murray to lead this evening's discussion about the Rights of Children and Families in North America. The institution commonly known as "Child Protective Services" has operated in an almost untouchable position in North America for decades, as if it was "above the law". To speak out against CPS was to risk losing your children, your family, your career, and in some cases your freedom, as retaliation was quick and vicious. Thankfully, there has been a recent turn in public opinion due to media exposure, precedent-setting lawsuits, ground breaking documentaries and people refusing to be silenced. Slowly, the Courts are starting to hold CPS agencies responsible for their illegal actions and abuses." We'll speak to the producer and director of 'Hope Stripped Bare', Tom Sutherland and cameraman Linley Redford, whose documentary is about the CPS system in North America. We will also be speaking with attorney and advocate Nanine McCool, executive director of Bridge to Justice Foundation, who fought to expose injustice in Family Court. We'll also have a former CPS worker who is willing to speak out about just how deep and how prevalent the corruption of these agencies is. ~~ Every two weeks a new THEME will be presented in this series, with frequent special guests speaking from their own experience. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/ForOurKids or write to: naasca.forourkids@gmail.com

    Why Mortgage Modifications Are So Discouraging

    in Finance

    Everyone has the same question in the back of their minds. The loans should be worked out rather than foreclosed. That is what is done with commercial loans, that is what was done in residential loans and it is still done with credit cards and other consumer loans. So why are we having problems with workouts and modifications?


    The answer is simple: we are not dealing with the creditor. We are dealing with an intermediary whose instructions are to get the loan into foreclosure. So they tell borrowers that they can’t qualify for a redo of their loan unless they stop paying, they say and do a lot of things that encourage the borrowers to do things that make them look like deadbeats when the case goes to foreclosure judgments. The borrowers are not deadbeats. They are victims just as the investors are victims. But we never hear from the investors because they don’t know that anything is wrong with their investments — because they are getting paid regardless of whether the “borrower” pays or not.


    Many judges have been asking two questions for years even as they give the banks the benefit of the doubt:


    (1) why is the modification process so enigmatic and random (and why are there not more workouts like it used to be in civil courts and bankruptcy courts) and


    (2) why are we seeing this shell game with first some bank or other entity claiming it is the owner of the loan, denying even the existence of the REMIC Trust, then they admit the existence of the Trust and claim the loan is owned by the Trusts, then they say the servicers have the right to foreclose and not the trusts or the investors, and then they keep switching servicers and trustees? To the Judges that ask these questions, it looks like a shell game but without appropriate pleading and evidence they can’t rule on it — or get the answers to their questions.

    Empress Simone Shares Her Book, Geena - A Bronx Chick’s Story

    in Writing

    Empress Simone credits her parents for giving her the drive to pursue her dreams. A lifelong resident of the Bronx in New York City, Empress Simone devotes her time to family, education, and writing. 


    During childhood Empress Simone realized she loved to write and would pen plays, song lyrics, poems, and short stories. She wishes to throw her hat in the editing arena and help bring fellow-authors visions and literary work to readers and supporters. An Administrative Assistant she is passionate about her love for others and tries to help in any capacity that she can. Empress Simone, an avid reader and old school Hip-hop fan, is also a budding genealogist who extensively studies and researches her ancestors/family history.


    Excerpt from Geena: A Bronx Chick’s Story


    Meet Geena Samuels, a single mother raising two sons in one of New York City’s toughest boroughs. This Bronx Story is nothing like you’ve ever witnessed before. Geena encounters violence and betrayal from those who claim to love her most. She is on a roller coaster ride of a struggle to make ends meet and find true love with emotions raging between love and anger that sometimes lead to war.


    During it all the one saving grace seem to be Geena’s sponsor who helps with the bills and Geena’s expensive shopping habits. However his real intentions are covered by the financial security he provides. Will Geena survive the game, or the web of deceit her best friend Abby or Sponsor have woven, or will naivety and greediness be the cause of her demise?

    In The Streets with Beverley Smith: Another Hashtag (Episode 36)

    in Politics

    In the three weeks since the last live broadcast, several more African Americans have died in police custody: Sandra Bland, Kindra Chapman, Darrius Stewart, Sam Dubose, and Ralkina Jones. What's going on? It feels as though the police are stepping up their fear and aggression, and that the likelihood of dying during a routine traffic stop is increasing. This is a very real concern among Black people. Yet why is it so difficult to convince so many that Black lives are in peril and the courts are holding no one accountable? Justice, so far, has been elusive. The latest fatalities and more. Tuesday, July 29, 6pm Pacific

  • Dr. Taffy Wagner Money Talk Matters & Own Your Health Care w/ host Kevin Hunter

    in Business

    Host Kevin Hunter is proud to feature Dr. Taffy Wagner, counselor in finances and marriage. 


    About Taffy:


    How long have you been doing premarital financial counseling and what made you focus on marriages?


    It all started back in 1995 when I met my husband Eric, who had an independent career and counseling business for juniors and seniors in high school. He was saying to high school students and parents that students could go to college and get a four year degree in less than four years without putting the family in debt. I was introduced to him by some mutual friends because he was searching for some administrative help. I met him to interview for the job and shared my background with him not really know what it was that he did and learned shortly thereafter that I had DONE with my college education what he had been attempting to teach these families. Needless to say, I got the job and began learning the ropes of career and college counseling for high school students and families.


    What type of clients do you work best with?


    My clients generally are sick and tired of struggling financially, know there has to be a better way and are willing to accept responsibility for their past financial decisions and are ready to move forward. They are willing to INVEST in themselves and not seeing it as buying a service. They have DREAMS and GOALS they want to achieve and know they cannot do it alone.
