    America's Thievery, Greed, Control and Racism

    in Politics

    American history is thievery, greed, control and racism. America was stolen from Indians. White men migrated to America for new lives. Wealthy White men owned their mothers, their sisters, all people, places and things. Labor to build America was the results of White men stealing Africans from Africa and bringing them to America to work for no wages. The use of Africans became an industry and the greed of wealthy White men resulted in breeding of Africans as cattle was breeded to meet the demands for food and labor. In order to control Africans, wealthy White men hired poor overseers to stand watch by night and day. Overseers were given full control over Africans, as long as the life of the African wasn't taken without say so of the wealthy White man. Africans were sold on auction blocks, splitting up families. Africans were killed by Whites and it was less of a crime than killing an animal. Africans never gave up hope of freedom, and when government freed Africans, Black code laws were created so wealthy White men could keep free labor. Lock up Africans for any reason and have them serve time on plantations for no pay for years. Racism became the will of White men as a tool to hold back Blacks.

    BEST BRAIN EXERCISE MAY BE PHYSICAL!


    Time to get off your 'butts" literally!  All you sedentary souls who sit-away your life, doing nothing and missing out on the benefits of BETTER BRAIN POWER.


    Don't know your age but think on this, consider a work-out for THE BRAIN, NOT THE BODY.  We know that exercise tones the legs, builds bigger biceps and strengthens the heart.  But of all body parts that benefit from a good work-out, THE BRAIN may be the big winner!  How do I know, not only do I work out regulary, I work my brain through memorization.  Physical exercise is crucial to mind and body alike.


    How does exercise help the brain...


    STAY TUNED...


    Exercise triggers BDNF...etc.


    Babies/children need exercise for...etc.


    Exercise helps stave off...etc.


    The brain loves it when...etc.


    EXERCISE IS THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH!

    Reshaping The Traumatized Child: Can Innocence Be Restored?

    in Women

    Our children have seen, heard and experienced too much in their lives and many are exhibiting signs of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome before they even reach High School. Childhood used to be a time of joy, innocence, laughter, and carefree living. Now there is fear, doubt, distrust, anger and frustration, robbing our children not only of the innocence of youth, but of hope that tomorrow will be a better day. They need to believe it in order to create it, but how do we instill in our children that the have the power to create the world the way they want it to be, when they are standing upon a foundation of emotional trauma? Domestic violence, homelessness, drug addicted parents, and schools that are downright hostile. Who do they turn to for healing? After an early hard life, how can a child's innocence be restored?  Today our guest is Life Coach and Family Counselor Shiela Wilkins, Phd Coach dealing with the mind, body and spirit. Later on we'll be joined by therapist Howard Williams, to discuss how we, the extended family, can reach out to our children.

    Youth Suicide Contagion: Implications for Colleges and Universities

    in Health

    Presenter: Madelyn S. Gould, Ph.D., M.P.H. ,  Professor of Epidemiology in Psychiatry, CUMC/ Research Scientist, NYSPI.  Contact information: gouldm@nyspi.columbia.edu


    Moderator:  Alison Lake, M.A., Research Scientist and Project Director, NYSPI


    Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among college students in U.S., with approximately 1,100 students dying by suicide each year.  In addition, approximately 1% of undergraduates attempt suicide and 6-9% seriously consider suicide each year. It is recognized that youth suicide is influenced by many factors; research has indicated that one such factor is suicide contagion, a phenomenon to which teenagers and young adults are particularly vulnerable. Suicide contagion, sometimes referred to as suicide modeling, is the process wherein the direct or indirect knowledge of one suicide facilitates the occurrence of a subsequent suicide. There is ample evidence to support concerns about suicide contagion/modeling; several sources of this evidence will be presented.  Given the prevalence of suicide on college campuses, and the associated risk of contagion and clustering, it is imperative that colleges develop effective and comprehensive postvention strategies. This blogtalk will present specific postvention strategies that colleges and universities can use to limit the risk of further suicides through contagion.
