    Youth and Forming Good Habits

    in Parents

    Join Eric Komoroff (www.communityofunity.org) and Dr. Jason Stein (iRyze.com) in a discussion about today's youth and helping them form good habits. Habits can help or hinder success in school and in life.

    in Family

    Join Eric Komoroff (www.communityofunity.org) and Dr. Jason Stein (iRyze.com) in a discussion about today's youth and helping them deal with peer pressure. From what they want to wear, which technology they ask permission to use, or what activities they want to be part of, our children's behavior is many times a reflection of the influences and pressures that come from their peer group. How to balance these with parental controls, which battles to choice, and when to draw the line are some of what will be discussed in this episode.

    Youth and Raising an Atypical Child

    in Family

    Join co-hosts Eric Komoroff (www.communityofunity.org) and Dr. Jason Stein (iRyze.com) as they discuss the important issue of raising the atypical child. The hosts will be joined by Rita Eichenstein, PhD, who was penned a guide for parents who are struggling with their ‘atypical’ child; be it ADHD, Autism, a learning disability or any other diagnosis.  Dr. Eichenstein, a clinical psychologist, notes that the tendency to just focus on the child’s well being is only half the journey; because much of the child’s ultimate mental well being rests largely on the well-being of the parents and she provides tools and understanding to help parents work through the often discouraging process of raising a child with any type of difference.  If you are a parent who wants help in coping with the challenges of raising an atypical child, or a professional who wants to get a better idea of how better to understand the parents of the children they work with, listen to these childcare experts talk about the issues.

    Philly's Finest - Coach Eric Taylor

    in Motivation

    HISTORY


     


    Founded in 2012 assisting athletes from South Eastern Pennsylvania improve their football and life skills. This unique opportunity started when a group of young men were turned away from playing a sport they had all grown up loving and playing. Those young men came together along with their parents and decided to form their own team. After presenting their situation to a local football coach they began practicing and competing. Philly’s Finest has quickly become one of the most successful 7v7 programs on the east coast.


     


    MISSION


     


    To serve our community and youth by providing an environment that breeds competition in athletics and education. The athletes are surrounded by positive coaches and mentors that help guide the athletes through the everyday challenges they face on the field, in the classroom, and in their communities. They are provided with guidance throughout each level of education from high school through college. With the high level of college athletes that graduate from our program, we have become experienced in providing a level of guidance and assistance in the college recruiting process. We not only teach the physical aspects of the game but we raise the athletic intelligence level of each of our athletes. Our goal is to bring out the competitor in each of our athletes so they can be successful on the field and in the classroom.


     


    VISION



     An organization that is made up of football, basketball, track, soccer and cheerleading. Education in the college recruiting process is major and must be provided to parents as well as athletes. Our organization plans to provide that education. Competition will not be limited to just athletics. Our youth will compete in academic competitions in the fields of law, medicine, and business. To further prepare them, our goal is to establish strong tutoring, SAT, and ACT programs.

    C.D. - The BSA Marilyn Mosby Indictment of the 6BPD; to Justice or "Rushtice"?

    in Current Events

    As-Salaam-Alaikum / God's Peace Upon You,


    First, I must correct myself. When we aired the first show on this topic, I said that Baltimore's State's Attorney indicted without Grand Jury, the 6 officers in the death of Freddie Gray.


    Now that the "ham sandwiches" will stand trial as charged, we need to further examine, what happened to Freddie Gray, before, during and after the altercation with the BPD, which led to his untimely death.


    Clearly, there are many in the black community who are pleased with things thus far, viewing this as a sort of vindication for the disappointment of there being no indictments in the Eric Garner and Michael Brown cases. 


    On the other hand, the feeling has been expressed that Ms. Mosley levied the initial charges from a biased, unprincipled position, even suggesting a conflict of interest. 


    Is there reason to celebrate?


    Is "justice" finally to be served?


    In Waco, Texas, May 18th, at the Twin Peaks restaurant, a deadly shootout ensued, between two rival biker-gangs, the Banditos and Cossacks, in which 9 were killed and many, wounded.


    Amidst the reports of further planned attacks, there are some in the black community who point to how the press seems to set a contrasting tone in how each party is described. Absent in the description of the bikers, was the word "thug".


    How much time will the black community spend on this, in relation to that which we need to do, to repair ourselves and our communities, so that no one will ever have reason or purpose to so describe us?
