    Episode 34 - #OperationBaltimore or A Fire Sale at the CVS is a Gray Area

    in Current Events

    Another week, another minority unfortunately dies at the hands of our nations finest. Yes our boys in blue don't seem to be slowing their roll of murder and mayhem. The story is similar to others, yet the details and laws that aided in the mishandling are slightly different.


    Young Freddie Gray wasn't shot in the back. Details about how roughed up he was at the time of arrest differ, but one detail of this case made the public cringe, if for nothing more than the fact that the police couldn't reveal, by statute, what had happened to this young man after being loaded into the paddy wagon, not to mention his original sin was making eye contact and possibly heading the other direction. 


    After the police gave light chase, the apprehended him, restrained him with handcuffs, and caused enough pain that he was screaming in agony while being loaded into the wagon. They drove to the police precinct, and in that spat of time, Freddie's neck was 80% separated from his spine. They finally got him medical attention, where he slipped into a coma and passed away within a week. 


    Police offered no explanation, and why should they, Maryland has a law enforcement bill of rights that grants cops 10 to get their stories straight.As is now routine, angry protests followed, at first peaceful, but as Baltimore is a powder keg of inequality and racial tension, it soon escalated into riots the likes of which haven't happened since the great riots of the 60s when MLK was assassinated. 


    Is it finally time to address the underlying issues plaguing our society? What are they, and how to we appease the communities that are currently being disenfranchised by the symptoms of this divisive issue. The police are low hanging fruit in this grand problem. What is the root of it?

    Those Baltimore Thugs, Really?

    in Lifestyle

     I hear all too often the question "What does Africa & Black history have to do with what we do today?" I always hesitate.How do you explain a process to someone who believes they live in a bubble only affected by what happens today?I explain that I have a scar over my right eye because a guy sucker punched me one day as I was walking home from school. Now I am always aware when someone walks up on me from behind.  Police self report domestic violence at the rate of 40% of ALL domestic violence reports.Their spouses are deathly afraid to report because...In a nationwide survey of 123 police departments, 45% had no specific policy for dealing with officer-involved domestic violence. http://www.purpleberets.org/violence_police_families.html   Where were all of these people who call Black children thugs and criminals when the students at Kentucky University rioted in the streets for the 2nd year in a row.   http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/04/05/1375772/-Riots-Looting-Fires-Break-Out-in-Kentucky-Don-t-Worry-It-s-Mostly-White-Kids#  Kentucky fans rioted because they lost a basketball game. Baltimore youth rioted because another black man was paralyzed and died while in police custody for the second time. Pastor Jamal Bryant brought the Bloods and the Crips together this past Sunday with the Nation of Islam and a Christian Church in peace to address  and create a plan to overcome the systemic issue of  domestic violence on the black male. Did Fox, NBC, ABC or CBS report that breaking news? NO!

    WHO'S TO BLAME: BERNIE and BALTIMORE

    in Politics

    I am excited to be back this weekend with a newly formatted Who's to Blame.  It will be thirty minutes, so I can fit more Blaming in. But seriously, I will be able to cover more topics.  



    I am registering as a Democrat, who's to Blame?   I will tell you why, Bernie Sanders.  I find myself excited about politics again.  I will even volunteer some of my time.  Listen in. 


     



    We had a repeat of Fergurson in a major U.S. City this week. Citizens in Baltimore, held demonstrations to protest the killing of yet another Black male.  However, when the media caught on we watched Baltimore burn, or at least a single CVS in Baltimore.   A man's spine was inexplicably destroyed, so people started destroying property, who's to Blame?

    RadioFreeRover presents Derby day and the Baltimore riots

    in Fun

    The Bad and the ugly :


     


    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The state fire marshal’s office have charged a 22-year-old man for cutting a firefighter hose during the Baltimore riots Monday.


    According to the fire marshal, Greg Bailey was identified as the man who “intentionally damaging a charged water supply fire hose” when firefighters were battling the blaze at the CVS at North and Pennsylvania avenues.


    Really? You cut a f'ing fire hose after looters set a store on fire, you do it live on TV and do it again.


    Darwin!


     


    Don't mess with mom!


     


    The teenage boy publicly shamed when his mom smacked him around at the Baltimore riots this week said he knows she "really cares about me."


    A video shows Michael Singleton being dragged from the protests and whacked by his mother, Toya Graham, after she saw him on television and recognized a key piece of clothing.


    "What caught my eye was his sweatpants," she told ABC News. "Even though he had on all black, I knew those sweatpants he had on, they had a stripe on the side of it and then his eye contact met mine. And I knew that was my son."

    Health Management & Health Care Logistics

    in Business

    On this week's edition of HealthCare Consumerism Radio, hosts Ron Bachman and Doug Field are live in the studio for a discussion on trends in population health management and how changes toward a consumer-centric health care model are affecting all stakeholders in the system.


    For the first segment on today's program, the hosts welcome Jack Curtis, founder and chief executive officer of Corporate Health Partners, to the show. A speaker at this June's FORUM & Expo, the chair of the Leadership Committee at HERO and an overall thought leader in health management, Jack discusses some of the latest trends in corporate wellness today. Jack and the hosts also cover the content of this June's FORUM & Expo general session, recent HERO research and how to engage the C-suite in corporate wellness efforts. 


    The second guest on this week's show is Robin Hooker, the director of healthcare marketing for UPS, a global leader in logistics. In this segment, Robin and the hosts discuss how the shift toward patient-centric care is affecting all participants in the health care system. Today, patients are choosing more direct-to-home deliveries; walk-in clinics, such as CVS Minute Clinic and MedPost Urgent Care, are on the rise; the middle class and aging populations in emerging markets are growing. These are impacting the health care supply chain immensely. With health care consumerism on the rise globally, logistics partners are required to innovate now more than ever to ensure a safe end-to-end shipping experience for biologics, pharmaceuticals, medical devices and more.

    Aleve Alert - The Only Way Out Is In - Host Daya Devi-Doolin

    in Self Help

    Two weeks ago, our twenty yr old son had headache on job and asked if anyone had Ibupropen. A female co-worker offered him 3 and took them. He called us up in afternoon that his face was swelling, lips swollen and bumps all over him. We went to his job, saw him and went to nearby CVS to ask for suggestions and purchase some benydryl and calamine lotion. Went home took him and next to Urgent Care to see doctor it was getting worse. During night he found it starting become hard to breathe so ER was next step. Hospital admitted him RIGHT AWAY. Dr. diagnosed Stephen Johnson's Syndrome. Never heard of it. It affected his body, elbow(1) Pubic area that fast, lips, inside throat, mouth lips, face. Bottom line is - I called forth my spiritual warriors, angels, Christ. My husband and I prayed with son and dismissed the label "Stephen Johnson's Syndrome out of our minds. Why - the Doctors (infectious wound docter and Medical Doctor) said they had seen 15 cases of the disease and none of the patients lived. What a blow. So - after calling forth invisible and visible angels - Miracles upon miracles. Everyone prayed for us and we received the effect of your prayers!   He’s been lifted up from the disease Steven Johnson’s Disease. We used Reiki and prayer and Angelic help (physical and invisible). We used positive thinking, affirmations 24 hrs a day, meditation.  We use visualization and imagining and denied what the Drs. Told us as Truth.  We were out of the hospital within 6 days.  Joseph is totally healed. No more hives, boils on inside of throat, esophagus, mouth. Lips no longer swollen, chapped, cracked and painful. Scrotum, testicles and penis skin healed over and no more excruciating pain there.  Joseph was back to work two days ago.  Joseph was back to first day of school on time.  He’s happy and healed and well. We are RELIEVED, THANKSFUL for our friends, Christ and God’s GRACE.
