    Home vs Get Hard, how hiding black people equals success.

    in Entertainment

    This weekend had it's own ironic twist. 

    in the face of a UCLA study claiming that diverse casting actually sells movies more there were two movies opening with two very different advertising campaigns. 


    Get hard, a movie Staring Kevin Hart and Will Farrel maketed their movies showing both, in fact selling the movie solely on both actors star power. Home, a movie with a diverse cast sold it's movie primarly on a fat cat and a purple alien. 

    the result? Home brought in 54 million dollars domestically and and another 26 internationally where as Get hard opened to 34 million dollars. 


    which begs the question does diversity really sell? or are people just tired of Kevin Hart.

    in News

    It was wet stormy day at the Sepang track, during qualifying, for the Formula One Malaysian Grand Prix, on Saturday.  Mercedes wunderkind and two-time champion Lewis Hamilton took his second pole position in the second race of the season. Former Red Bull champion Sebastian Vettel, in his first season driving for Ferrari, broke-up the Mercedes 1-2 front row by taking second away from fellow German, Nico Rosberg.  A very disappointed Nico Rosberg, will be starting in third position.  Red Bulls, Daniel Ricciardo and Daniil Kvyat qualified 4th and 5th respectively.  For the first time in 54-years, a teenager, Max Verstappen, qualified in the top ten in Formula One Grand Prix qualifying. Verstappen, driving for Toro Rosso, and will be starting, sixth, on Sunday.   At age 17, Verstappen is the youngest driver in Formula One.  Thunderstorms and torrential rains stopped any momentum Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen may have had, scoring in the top ten. He will start in eleventh, position.  The Sepang crowd welcomed back an injured Fernando Alonso and Valtteri Bottas after both drivers suffered injuries doing what the love, racing.  With dynamics on the track changing, Sunday's race should be spectacular.


    Keep it tuned to Xiro Xone F1 Sports for all the action at the Formula One Grand Prix, Malaysia.

    Race Relations Greatest Breakdown Stems From Institutional Racism

    in Religion

    Racism is the enemy in America that will continue to grow until Whites who don't respect Blacks can unleast call a truce. Only with respect will there be an ability to communicate. Race relations in America is filled with rage and ignorance is the root of the rage. All the many things being used to divide this nation can be easily resolved if everyone would lay down their swords and begin to speak to and not at one another with no repercussions. God says: If my people who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and will heal their land 2Chronicles 7:14


    Confess your faults one to another and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.  The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16


    When attempts made to resolve racial issues leaves God out, then it is not in God's will. With 9 of ever 10 Americans confessing Christianity as their religion of choice, including God should be no problem. Once we can talk with open minds surely they can solve the issue of race relations once and for all. Leviticus 26:7-8 reads: But you will chase your enemies and they will fall before you by the sword; five of you will chanse a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand, and your enemies will fall before you by the sword. Race relations greatest breakdown stems from institutional racism.

    Stealing elections – how Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy by John Fund ©2004 by John Fund – “The leaders in any society are unlikely to change their habits or the rules they lay down for others unless pressured to do so by the governed. If corruption exists, it is in part because we the people permit it, either by silence, by inattention or by misunderstanding. If persistent voter fraud and outdated election procedures are to be remedied, the public and the media will have to demand it. Ignoring, or refusing to recognize, the enduring problems of election fraud and mismanagement that plague many parts of our country will ensure that it spreads, mutates and grows more toxic.”

    Cruz vows to shun negative campaigning


    By KEVIN ROBILLARD


    3/29/15 11:03 AM EDT


    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is swearing off negative campaigning as he begins his run for the White House.


    “There may be other candidates who choose to throw rocks in my direction,” the GOP presidential hopeful said in an interview aired Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I’m not going to engage in the personal mudslinging, in the negative attacks on people’s character.”


    Cruz last week became the first Republican to officially enter the presidential race. But he insisted that, despite his reputation as an archconservative and a bomb-thrower, he had avoided personal attacks over the past two years in the Senate.


    “In my time in the Senate, there’s been more than a few rocks tossed in my direction from Democrats and Republicans,” he said. “Yet in my entire time there, I haven’t reciprocated. You have never heard me speak ill of any senator, Republican or Democrat, and I don’t intend to start.”

  • Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams on how to fail your way to success

    in Psychology

    Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science.


    *"Best of" replay tonight.


    Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams, obviously, is not a scientist. But he thinks and views his experiences like a scientist and his wisdom is well-supported.


    For example, Adams found that it isn't goals that are the key to success, but what he calls "systems." 


    And Adams advises, based on his own steady stream of failures in business, that "Everything you want in life is in that bubbling vat of failure. The trick is to get the good stuff out."


    As a cartoonist, he thinks of himself as a "professional simplifier." That's what he does in his just-published book, How To Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big, and simplifying for all of us what it takes to succeed in business and be happy in life is what he does on tonight's not-to-be-missed show.


    Join me and all my fascinating guests every Sunday, 7-8 p.m. PT, 10-11 p.m. ET, at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.


    Please support this show by buying my book, the science-based and funny "Good Manners For Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck" (St. Martin's Griffin, 2014).

    Increased Alcoholism Rates Post Gastric Bypass Surgery

    in Lifestyle

    In 2012 a study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that reports the percentage of patients abusing alcohol increased from 7.6% to 9.6% two years after gastric bypass surgery - potentially creating 2,000 alcoholics every year in the US.


    There is more than one theory on why this occurs.  Some say it is addiction transfer: a patient switches an addiction to food to an addiction to alcohol.  More recent evidence suggests an anatomical explanation - metabolic and hormonal changes triggered by gastric bypass surgery that leave patients especially vulnerable to alcoholism.  Maybe it is both - or neither?  The truth is nobody is 100% sure of why alcoholism rates increase post surgery.


    If you are struggling with alcoholism post-surgery, however, the reason why may not be as relevant as what to do about it.  There are unique challenges that face people whose alcoholism may be attributed to gastric bypass surgery, and on this episode of the Bubble Hour we will discuss this startling trend.  We will share more information about why experts feel this increased vulnerability to alcoholism occurs, and speak with special guest Jessica about her own experience with gastric bypass surgery, alcoholism and recovery.


    We are also excited to welcome Diane Grimaldi, DNP, PMHCS, BC as a guest on the show and an expert on this issue.


    Diane started her psychotherapy practice in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1984 after receiving her Masters Degree in Adult Mental Health Nursing from Boston College and becoming a board certified Clinical Specialist in Psychiatric Nursing. 


    In 2014 she received a Doctorate in Nursing Practice from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell.  For more information about Diane and her practice please visit www.grimaldicounseling.com.
