    In 1962, Hitomi was born in a small village named Oozato in the city of Okinawa, Japan. She played basketball in middle school and was very active as a student. Despite her parents’ separation, she was accomplished in academics. She enrolled in Koza high school. Struggling to pay for tuition, she worked. After she graduated from the Koza high school, she attended Kokusai Kankou Gakuen. She learned English. She met her Husband, Kenneth, in 1982. They went back to the States where she gave birth to Kenny. Two years later, the couple moved back to Okinawa. Kenneth was an Air Force Sergeant and was stationed at Kadena Air Force base for four years. She gave birth to Lynn during this time. After the four years of duty, the family moved back to the States where she gave birth to Joshua. She has been a mother of three children, and supported the family. While she was raising three children, she observed society, community, environment and humanity. Hitomi learned English as a second language at Yuba Community College in California. She became interested in English literature. She now enjoys writing and painting. She is currently acquiring an AA degree in Accounting at Ashworth College.

    Capture the Moment The Natural Way - Lights, Camera, Action!

    in Education

    Lights! Camera! Action!  


    Einstein had a great sense of wonder and appreciation for all the phenomena of life.  He said, “Our task must be to free ourselves…by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.”


    Children's knowledge of nature is dwindling, study finds.  Research shows younger generations are getting less and less clued up about nature with knowledge of basic facts declining.


    How to clear our way in doing things in our life and getting back in touch with nature.


    During broadcast we are going to share some fun ideas to get back in touch with nature through the lens of the camera.


    Jeff Cannon will join me and share his thoughts on Gratitude.  


    Join us!  You can also catch us on Experiosity.com and Brook N' Dell Virtual Village.

    Lesson Learned, Are You Willing

    in Social Networking

    Real Men Speak is a radio talk show design to stimulate conversation within our community and amongst men and women and especially the younger generation. The show is designed again to stimulate  conversation to help to change the way things are being developed and executed. I've learned that the only way things will change is if we come up with new ways of thinking and doing. So what I'm asking is that you the listening audience, You my friends and family, You my Colleagues come and join this movement to help make things better. The real man speak radio show is full of different ways to help create options for both our young men and men in general as well as the family. It takes a village to raise a standard for change


    The real men speak radio show does not have a topic of discussion, we want to have open dialogue conversation with you about the matters of the heart ,  and how to change the events  that are taking place.


    I need each and every one to become a player in the game and voice your opinions and your concerns so that our young listeners can hear the love that's coming from concerned  people like ourselves.  Myself and Real men speak cannot Change this on our own We are just one voice one voice.Please get involved. Our website is www.realmenspeak.org

    Our Broadcast today will focus on our children, our schools and our community failures. Money is a powerful force.  We work for it, spend it, use it to satisfy our earthly longings.  But so many of our communities take our tax dollars and  fail to provide for our students.  Common Core, is only one of the issues, the other in the Largest Town in America, (Town of Hempstead) is the redevelopment going on with the wealthy developers building 6-10 story apartment buildings in a single Village of Hempstead, and failing to provide adequate classroom space for the growing families. The Village has selected a developer, Renassance Downtown, and failed to allocate appropriate funds, for development depending on tax increases to bring it about as they move out established residents.  Tune in and join in on our broadcast on blogtalkradio.com /don-durant...

    Author and Film Director William Dickerson

    in Education

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview William Dickerson.


    William Dickerson is a writer and director whose debut feature film, "Detour," was hailed as an “underground hit” by The Village Voice, an “emotional and psychological roller-coaster ride” by The Examiner, and nothing short of “authentic” by The New York Times. He self-released his metafictional satire, "The Mirror," which opened YoFi Fest’s inaugural film festival in 2013 and he alsoe recently completed his third feature film, "Don’t Look Back," for MarVista Entertainment. His award-winning work has been recognized by film festivals across the country. His first book, "No Alternative," was declared, “a sympathetic coming-of-age story deeply embedded in ‘90s music” by Kirkus Reviews. He currently serves on AFI’s Alumni Executive Board and is a Faculty Member at the New York Film Academy.

    Based on his challenges while making his debut “microbudget” film, Detour, Dickerson walks the reader through every aspect of making a film in Hollywood. From style direction to financial obstacles, it’s a detailed guide of the experiences of up and coming filmmakers in Los Angeles. 

    Kirkus Reviews said Detour: Hollywood is “A breezy guide that takes readers inside the sometimes-hair-raising world of do-it-yourself filmmaking, capturing its many frustrations and challenges.”

    OUTSIDE, INSIDE A POLICE STATE

    in Politics

    Program Summary: April 25, 2015


    @Naomi_Fowler produces for the Tax Justice Network the monthly "Taxcast." 


    In the April 2015 Taxcast: How just are our tax systems towards women? Plus: one of the USA's biggest corporations (and tax avoiders) is repatriating billions from offshore and re-focusing on good old manufacturing again, and remember how the UK Prime Minister was 'leading the world' in transparency measures not so long ago? We discuss the letter a former Cayman Islands lobbyist and Conservative peer wrote to reassure the tax haven that it was an empty gesture to distract from the proposed Financial Transaction Tax.


    Then from Great Speeches and Interviews, Sacramento, CA "Inside the Police State."


     Police officer Adrian Schoolcraft secretly recorded his supervisors telling officers to manipulate crime statistics and make illegal arrests from 2008 to 2009. The Village Voice series that broke Schoolcraft's story was written by Graham Rayman. Ira Glass narrates the story. "Police Officer Schoolcraft, who worked in the relatively high-crime 81st precinct in Brooklyn, was not a happy camper. Some might call him a malcontent.
    In 2009, he began to secretly tape-record precinct roll calls at which commanding officers ordered cops like himself to refuse to take robbery victims’ crime complaints. Cops were also ordered to downgrade felonies — which are serious crimes — to less serious misdemeanors so that the precinct would appear safer than it actually was. Schoolcraft’s secret tape recordings might well have been ignored, had not the police department then done something shocking.  On Oct. 31, 2009, Schoolcraft left his tour early, saying he felt sick, and returned to his apartment in Queens. What happened next tells us much about "the police state."
