    "Bey and the Fishnet Revolution:  Giving the People What they Want"


    " . . . because I cannot for the life of me understand how Beyonce’s commodified caricature of black opposition was in any way progressive. Instead what I saw was the cultural power of neoliberal capitalism to co-opt opposition, monetize it and provide some mindless entertainment all at the same time.  I didn’t see opposition; I saw the imagery and symbols of authentic black radicalism grotesquely transformed into a de-politicized spectacle by gyrating, light-skinned booty-short-clad sisters."

    Provocative Thought with Carlton Steed: Man Whore - Manhood

    in Motivation

    This is a journey into the idea of self, social, media, and cultural subjugation, exploitation, and objectification of male sexual energy. Is there a double social/moral standard for the male regarding sexual behavior? Is it more acceptable and celebrated for a man to objectify woman, and him and reduce the quality and value of the sexual experience?

    Relationships & Social Media

    in Culture

    When we think about social media, do we ever consider the impact it has on relationships? Whether it be perosnal, business, professional, work etc. What impact does social media have or has on any relationship you had or currently had? When I think about social media I look at it as an outlet for people to share their views and opinions on different topics. It's a way for friends and family to stay connected with one another. Social media has given the entrepreneur an opportunity to reach potential customers.


    Does social media reveal who people really are or does it hide it? Has social media turned us into zombies who have lost their identity? Do we look for validation from others or affirmation? How often do you use social media and for what reason? Can people in relationships be friends with each other? Why or why not? Join my co-host and myself as we address the issue of social media and its impact it has on relationships. #DWD

    SATURDAY HIGH NOON


     


    What's the matter with Kansas? "The Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy recently reported that Kansas has the ninth-most unfair tax system in the county.  A Kansan earning $47,700 a year pays 9.5 percent of income in state and local taxes; but someone earning $1,191,700 pays an effective rate of just 3.6 percent."


    So much for the 'trickle down' libertarian economic theories masterminded by the Wichita plutocrats Charles & David Koch; as implemented by Gov. Sam Brownback and his cronies in the state legislature.


    Program Summary: Feb. 13, 2016


    Hear Doug Annstaedt, executive director of the Kansas Press Association on open meeting law reforms before the Kansas state legilature.

    AgriFest, Scouting, Valentine's Day Jump Up, and Other Traditions in the USVI

    in Culture

    Every February, St. Croix hosts the largest agricultural festival in the Territory. The St. Croix Agricultural Fair, or AgriFest, is a colorful display of locally produced agricultural products, livestock, arts & crafts, & native cuisine. Taking place over 3 days, festival goers can taste, touch, & see everything to do with St. Croix agriculture.


    The Boy Scouts of America in the USVI was served in the early 20th Century through National Council Direct Service. Then the troops later were added as the Virgin Island District in the Puerto Rico-Virgin Islands Council. During the late 1960s & early 1970s, Troop 152, sponsored by Saint Patrick's Church, Frederiksted, Saint Croix, formed a steel band of grammar-school-age Scouts that was managed by Vivian Bennerson. The band toured internationally.


    The Scout Association of the British Virgin Islands operates as a branch of the United Kingdom Scout Association, as the British Virgin Islands' affiliation as a British Overseas Territory. The BVI Scout Oath and Law, & other Scouting requirements, closely follow that of the United Kingdom.


    Jump Up, held 4 times yearly, is a "carnival like" cultural party held in the streets & along the boardwalk of Christiansted. Sponsored by the CRRA (Christiansted Restaurant & Retail Association), it has become one of the islands' favorite social events for both locals & visitors alike.


    Friends of Virgin Islands National Park and the National Park Service will partner to present the Annual Folk Life Festival in celebration of Black History Month in February on St. John.
