Today we will be talking about the golden days of pro wrestling to many middle aged men today. Pro wrestling of the 1970s and early 80s. Dick the Bruiser, Bobo Brazil, The Crusher, Road Warriors, Randy Savage, and a host of other sports entertainers brought us off the couch and out of our folding chairs at national guard armories all across the United States when our wrestlers came to town. Saturday morning wrestling was all the rage. Sunday afternoon wresting after church got more attnetion than pro football. Living room floors became makeshift wrestling rings and hte stuff neighborhood legends were made of back in those sweet days of innocence when we thought it was all real.

Operation: Next Chapter is “working with Soldier’s Angeles Project: Valour-IT to provided 100 voice-controlled, adaptive lap-top computers for military personnel who have lost the use of their hands. Vietnam Veteran and author Cym Lowell will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of his latest novel, Jasper’s War, to purchase these individually adapted computers which cost $500 a piece. The laptops allow warriors who are healing from amputations, paralysis, eye injuries, burns and brain trauma to stay in touch with their family and their units during their recovery period.”
Cym Lowell "was born in Montana to academics and spent his youth traveling the world. To put it politely, he was an undistinguished student, rewarded with assignment to the U.S. Navy at 18. After two years in Vietnam, college and law school were a challenge. Being a veteran in the political turbulence of the late 1960s and early 1970s taught humility. Raising three children in the Midwest and Texas brought love and responsibility. An international tax practice in the financial crises of the past 40 years provided insight into motivations of actors on the global stage. Friends, clients, adversaries, and colleagues, like victory and defeat, added color and context. The result is a writer with a treasure trove of experience to frame compelling characters enmeshed in heart-thumping challenges." Cym Lowell is the author of The Gift, Riddle of Berlin and Jaspar's War.
For people who grew up in the middle of the 20th Century, space travel/exploration has been something of a disappointment since the lunar landings of the late 1960s and early 1970s. The promises of commercial space travel, promoted in such feature films as Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A SPACE ODDESSY have never been realized, and man's toehold in space has been limited to near-earth ventures like the International Space Station (ISS) and the American Space Shuttle program that was shut down several years ago. In a word, disappointing.
However, the 21st Century has finally begun to deliver on the promises made by people like President John F. Kennedy and Werner von Braun, thanks to a number of pioneering commercial space ventures that are rapidly beginning to deliver results. Companies like Orbital Sciences and SpaceX, are already providing resupply and retrieval services to NASA for the ISS. And sometime in 2017, SpaceX will fly their first manned mission aboard their own U.S.-built Falcon 9 rocket. These rapid and well conceived programs have not gone without incident however, as demonstrated by the recent accidents involving Orbital Sciences and Virgin Galactic's boosters and spacecraft. Nevertheless, these bold ventures, led by men like Richard Branson and Elon Musk are pushing ahead, and look to be back sometime in 2015.
To learn more about the coming revolution in commercial space projects, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) i for Military Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) author Piers Biznoy, and they be discussing his new book. NEW SPACE FRONTIERS. Together they will discuss the current crop of commercial space ventures, recent setbacks and successes, and the long-term viability of space as a commercial enterprise arena.
The alarming underachievement of African Caribbean boys in British schools and abroad in comparison to other groups is highlighted in Dr. Janet Graham's book. The author adopts an historical perspective to compare West Indian children who arrived in Britain in the 1960s and 1970s (many labelled as ESN) (Coard 1971) to problems faced by black boys in today's classrooms.
Dr. Graham also explores the impact of globalisation, population movement, government policies and diversity on black boys’ education provision in inner city schools in Britain. She investigates masculinity, subcultures, peer group pressures and exclusion from school and their impact on black boys education. The Institutional Focus Study sets the context for the empirical study and provides a perspective from voices of black boys in one inner London school to find out what they think about school, learning, subcultures, peer group pressures and teachers.
As a contrast teachers’ views of the boys are also provided. This book will be of interest to educationalists, teachers, students; parents, school management and government bodies interested in race, diversity, achievement and want to bring about change to improve life chances.

Dark Horse Flyer is Don Mularz (lead vocals, guitar), Scott Lane (guitar, vocals), John Tillman (guitar), Richard Taylor (bass) Raul Hernandez (drums, percussion) and Bob Taylor (keyboards). Bob Taylor and Raul Hernandez have separately shared the stage with such notable artists as Ernest Ranglin, Buster Poindexter, Etta James, Temptations, Kansas, Chuck Berry, and The Gin Blossoms.
KB THE REVOLUTIONARY RYDERS put their hands in the air for MIke Brown, Dontre Hamilton, Eric Garner and every other victim of police brutality and murder in America. For all intents and purposes Blacks born in the 1970s were the first real free born black people in this country. After the sacrifices made by our forefathers for equality, justice and a piece of the American dream we were expected to carry the torch for black progressiveness in this country. 44 years later where are we? Have we fulfilled the dreams and hopes of our forefathers? How free are we really? Have we totally lost the point of what the struggle was really about?? Why is Charles Barkley wearing that dumb ass cowboy hat? Tune in Saturday night at 7:30 PM CST
CHOCOLATE SITY........REAL REVOLUTIONARY!!!
Suddenly, it feels like the 1960s again, with swirling movements for social justice finding inspiration and a powerful common denominator in the struggle for black equality.
Multiracial, multi-ethnic, multi-class, and multi-generational Americans have swarmed the streets in vast numbers to not only protest against racial injustice but to expose systemic oppression that has been an open secret since the heyday of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
The decision by a Staten Island, New York, grand jury not to indict Police Officer Daniel Pantoleo in the choking death of Eric Garner came nine days after Ferguson, Missouri, erupted into an open rebellion following another grand jury’s decision not to indict former police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, a black teenager.
While violence engulfed parts of downtown Ferguson, 170 cities staged largely peaceful demonstrations both in solidarity with the #BlackLivesMatter movement and in demand of a vision of social justice that far surpasses the imagination of most contemporary politicians and pundits.
Thousands of New Yorkers took to the streets on Wednesday and Thursday nights to express outrage against the political system that allowed a black man to be choked to death while screaming, “I can’t breathe!”
Across the country this movement has been spreading with protesters stopping traffic on highways and busy streets. Here in Baltimore protesters attempted to shutdown the annual Christmas tree lighting in downtown Baltimore. Do events like this help or hurt the cause
