    2010 Census

    in Current Events

    Census literally means an official count of the population, which the U.S. Constitution mandates being conducted every ten years. Since 1790, 22 censuses have been taken, and in March 2010, a simple questionnaire will be sent to every household in the United States. The questions ask you to provide information that is accurate for your household, which is completely confidential. The census counts all people living in the United States, regardless of citizenship, race, ethnicity or age. The U.S. Census Bureau cannot share an individual’s answers with anyone, including welfare and immigration.

    Solving the Problem with the 2010 Census

    in Social Networking

    Solving the Problem with the 2010 Census
    The 2010 Census will help determine the distribution of roughly $400 billion a year in federal funds to state and local governments, and for every person not counted, Illinois will lose $12,000 over the next 10 years.
    Low-income, immigrant, minority and rural communities have historically been undercounted in
    the once-a-decade survey, which is mandated by the U.S. Constitution. With the sagging
    economy and billions of federal dollars at stake, not only are these underserved populations
    disproportionately affected, but residents throughout the state will be harmed if the count is not accurate."

    A look at my American Thinker posts from the last week

    in Politics

    We will look back at some of my American Thinker posts from the last week.  


    On Monday, we wrote about "populismo" in Brazil and its negative impact on the economy;


    On Tuesday, we looked at a new CNN poll giving Hillary Clinton a 15-point lead over her GOP rivals;


    On Wednesday, we wrote about Senator Durbin playing the race card;


    On Thursday, we commented on Hillary Clinton cracking jokes about her "missing emails" in front of reporters; and


    On Friday, we remembered how Iraq looked in 2010 compared to today; and


    today we said "good riddance" Senator Harry Reid who is retiring next year.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1060

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Bo Budinsky, a returning NAASCA family member from Texas, who's a child abuse survivor and a tireless child protection and adult survivor advocate. In January 2013 he founded Save One Survivor, after a life of addiction, shattered relationships, abandoned careers and homeless. As a child he'd been repeatedly violated. Bo knew himself as a broken person, deeply troubled and hopelessly addicted. He spent years working on himself, grabbing onto anything available which he thought would be healing. In September, 2010, Bo was selected to appear on Oprah Winfrey's now-famous 200 Male Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse show. Bo shares, "I had an epiphany. It became clear what my struggle all these years had been about. It was about the business of preparing me to be in a place where I could be of service to others with the same plight." He continues, "Only these last few years have I "come out of hiding" so to speak. I have been ashamed of something and running my entire life. I never knew what it was. Now I know. I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and it has profoundly affected my life." Bo says "I have one favor to ask. Please speak up, loudly, if you have even an inkling that a child is being sexually abused. Living with the effects is torturous. And if you think it is not very prevalent listen to this: 1 in 3 women AND 1 in 5 men are sexually abused before they are 18. What is at stake is the innocence of a precious child." See his video "It's Time to Talk About It"

    Black Thoughts and Theory: The Radio Show - Black Health

    in Culture

    BROTHERS AND SISTERS ... TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES 


    Health disparities between African Americans and other racial and ethnic populations are striking and apparent in life expectancy, death rates, infant mortality, and other measures of health status and risk conditions and behaviors.


    When you look at the 10 Leading Causes of Death for African Americans, you find that most of them are substantially preventable by making some lifestyle changes. The question becomes, do we, as a people, have access to that information and secondly why are we in this situation in the first place. 


    Join Alex Primo, Asha Zuri, and Joe Whitfield Thursday at 9 pm EST as we explore the sicknesses and ailments that plague our people and some possible ways to remedy them. We will look at common issues such as Heart Disease, Cancer, Stroke, and other health concerns of Melanated people. 



    African Americans in 2009 had the largest death rates from heart disease and stroke compared with other racial and ethnic populations.
    From 2007-2010, the largest prevalence of hypertension was among adults aged 65 years and older, African American adults, US-born adults, adults with less than a college education, adults who received public health insurance (18- 64 years old) and those with diabetes, obesity, or a disability, compared with their counterparts.
    The prevalence of obesity among adults from 2007-2010 was largest among African American women compared with white and Mexican American women and men.

    in Entertainment

    The U.S. Census Bureau reports that 32 percent of fathers with a working wife regularly care for their children younger than 15, according to data collected in spring 2010. That is up from 26 percent in 2002.


    When comparing households with working mothers in different regions, the Midwest — with 33 percent — had the highest percentage of fathers serving as primary caregivers for preschool-aged children, according to the census. The South had the lowest with 24 percent.
