    Conversations with Sapphire JBlue with Author Shamima - Catch of the Season

    in Writing

    When does leading a double life becomes too much to bear? This is a question all too familiar to Tiffany. 
    To the untrained eye she is just the exotic beauty who lives a wild and exciting life. Hidden beneath the façade is the vulnerable woman that is on a journey searching for love. Unbeknownst to Tiffany a membership to the neighborhood gym could give her far more than what she bargained for on the journey to true love. After finding herself in an unfamiliar territory, Tiffany is on a path of transformation to self-love and self-confidence. 

    Whirlwinds of turmoil and temptation encompasses the life of Dwayne. Does he leave the tempting antics of April alone to focus on his new found love with Tiffany? Or does he dare to continue on the path that can only lead to detriment and potential deadly results? In the reality where catfishing is real can he really trust anyone? 

    This journey between two individuals who cross paths leave you questioning: Can Tiffany survive it all? Is Dwayne who he says he is? Does a broken heart ever heal? Is Love really worth the highs and lows to realizing everything that glitters is not gold?

    The Summer of 1984 was an eventful 3 months for new Commissioner David Stern and the NBA; on the heels of an epic 7-game Finals slugfest between Larry Bird’s World Champion Boston Celtics and Magic Johnson’s Los Angeles Lakers, the first of 3 heavyweight bouts in the Decade, the NBA Draft was held in New York City; the Draft would introduce fans to 4 future Hall of Famers who would each write their own chapter in the NBA’s History Books. There was Forward Charles Barkley of Auburn, the rowdy, raucous “Round Mound of Rebound”, his polar opposite, little-known Guard John Stockton of Gonzaga, the majestic Nigerian Center and Number One pick  Akeem “The Dream” Olajuwon from the University of Houston, and the electric (Cue Chicago Bulls Public Address Announcer …”6 foot 6 Guard from North KAR-O-LINA!”)…Michael Jeffrey Jordan. These next-level players would secure the NBA’s rapidly growing stature as the Sport of the Future, with Bird and Magic now at the peak of their powers.  Jordan, Georgetown Center Patrick Ewing and 10 of College Basketball’s best would represent USA Basketball in the 1984 Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles, led by iconic and infamous Coach Bobby Knight of Indiana University. Knight, known lovingly as a “Raving Maniac” by his players brought his no-nonsense, drill-sergeant mentality to the USA program and molded yet another Gold Medal Winner. The agony and ecstacy of the Draft process, with its Franchise-changing consequences were never more evident than the summer of ’84.

    Economic Collapse in Progress?

    in Self Help

    Major economic changes have been unfolding for several years. We are now reaching a financial crisis that will get everyone‘s attention. There is a great potential for social chaos to result. 

    With interest on bonds so low that some rates are negative, the decision to increase interest rates before long could crash the markets. 

    Meanwhile, very few people have a full time job with benefits and enough income to meet living expenses and service their debt. Financial slavery replaced and expanded on physical slavery after the Civil War. Now we are reaching the point of realizing the low end experience of that financial prison.

    Alternative economists warn that sluggish economic activity, market drops, dollar decline and wealth redistribution may soon bring financial wipeout of the middle class and widespread poverty.

    The orchestrated migration of refugees from the middle east, who are being difficult to manage, are exacerbating the financial crisis in Europe and soon may in the U.S. Now the hostilities seem to be bringing on World War III.

    It is certainly time to get prepared and make plans with compatible friends.
