    Low High School Graduation Rates Among Black Students

    in Education

    There is no surprise that minority high school graduation rates are lower than average throughout the country. I am conducting a survey to try find out your opinion on why that is. Please take 5 minutes to complete this very important survey and pass the link along to your friends. Also join me on my first show back after a long and inspiring break to share your thoughts on how we may be able to improve these numbers. Notice I said how we can "improve" these numbers and not just talk about them. That is important to know the difference because there is a lot of talking and not enough doing and I for one feel that it all starts at home. Join me will you? Thank you!

    Boosting America's Graduation Rates

    in Current Events

    Over the past decade, American's college graduation rates have been surpassed by other nations. Though more than 40 percent of U.S. adults aged 25-34 hold post-secondary degrees, that rate pales in comparison to nations like Canada, South Korea and Russia which rank 1st, 2nd and 3rd and all boasting graduation rates above 55 percent. Last year, President Obama called for the United States to boost its college graduation rates by 2020. Next month, he will convene a national youth summit in an effort to engage high school students in a multi-media exchange about how they think the country should improve its graduation rates. In this episode of CL-Exchange OnAir, we are joined by education leadership professor Francisco Guajardo and high school leadership instructor Juan Ozuna, both of the Llano Grande Center in South Texas. They will share their thoughts about the president's approach and the role they think collective leadership might play in boosting the nation's graduation rate.

    Black Thoughts and Theory: The Radio Show - Black Health

    in Culture

    BROTHERS AND SISTERS ... TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES 


    Health disparities between African Americans and other racial and ethnic populations are striking and apparent in life expectancy, death rates, infant mortality, and other measures of health status and risk conditions and behaviors.


    When you look at the 10 Leading Causes of Death for African Americans, you find that most of them are substantially preventable by making some lifestyle changes. The question becomes, do we, as a people, have access to that information and secondly why are we in this situation in the first place. 


    Join Alex Primo, Asha Zuri, and Joe Whitfield Thursday at 9 pm EST as we explore the sicknesses and ailments that plague our people and some possible ways to remedy them. We will look at common issues such as Heart Disease, Cancer, Stroke, and other health concerns of Melanated people. 



    African Americans in 2009 had the largest death rates from heart disease and stroke compared with other racial and ethnic populations.
    From 2007-2010, the largest prevalence of hypertension was among adults aged 65 years and older, African American adults, US-born adults, adults with less than a college education, adults who received public health insurance (18- 64 years old) and those with diabetes, obesity, or a disability, compared with their counterparts.
    The prevalence of obesity among adults from 2007-2010 was largest among African American women compared with white and Mexican American women and men.

    Islamaphobia and the West

    in Politics

    Today,


    We discuss the rampant rise in hate against Islam, being perpetuated especially from the right both in the United States and Europe. The rise in anti-immigration parties all across Europe is systematic of the hatred against Islam and Muslims, which is reflected in European party politics, whose major credo has been that Islam is a threat to Western civilization.


    Numerous figures in the far right in Europe contend that Muslims are backward and cannot assimilate into a Western Christian society. Marine La Pen, Geert Wilders, as well in the past such individuals like Pim Fortuyn, have echoed severe dununciations against Islamic immigration and large birth rates, which they fear is making White European Christians as a minority in their own countries in a few decades, given demographic trends.


    But perhaps the worst aspect of all of this is the violence that has occured. The false flag attack by Anders Bearing Breivik in Norway, once again, imerges as the worst case scenerio of the hatred being expounded in various Western circles against Islam and Muslms.


    Please join us for a most interesting discussion about this topic, with our special guests Mark Dankof and Kevin Barrett.

    in Fitness

    In the now famous research from The China Study, co-authored by father-son duo T. Colin Campbell, PhD, and Thomas Campbell, MD, we learned that a whole-food, plant-based diet is linked to lower rates of chronic disease. The groundbreaking results (published in 2005) revealed the optimal diet: A diet comprised of fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains with minimal to no meat, dairy and processed food is the most powerful action you can take to lose weight, prevent disease, and feel better overall. In his new book - THE CAMPBELL PLAN: The Simple Way to Lose Weight and Reverse Illness, Using The China Study's Whole-Food, Plant-Based Diet, Dr. Thomas Campbell shows readers how to make the transition to a plant-based diet with practical guidance and a simple plan to make a whole-food, plant-based lifestyle easy and sustainable. Dr. Campbell joins us on this episode of The Fitness Buff Show.

    Negotiation Trends for School Districts in 2015

    in Education

    One of the key responsibilities of a school board member is negotiating the contract for teachers and staff.  It is, by far, the place where most of the district’s financial resources are allocated; as well it establishes other protocols which affect student achievement.  Each year brings new challenges.  In 2015, what are those challenges?  How should boards approach the Chapter 78 health benefit reform legislation?  What is the importance of average settlement rates?  How long can a district expect negotiations to take?  What are some common misperceptions the public has about negotiations?  Please join host Ray Pinney as he discusses these and other issues with Patrick Duncan, Manager of NJSBA Labor Relations Department.

    A Conversation With Laura Hayden

    in Comedy

    When Laura Hayden is not killing patients–with laughter, she is killing it on stage as a stand-up comedian and inspirational speaker. Dr. Laura Hayden is a practicing physical therapist, touring comedian and speaker. Laura’s stand-up career started at the front of the classroom while she earned her Masters in Physical Therapy from Mount Saint Mary’s College. Her ability to highlight the humorous side of medicine led her classmates to nominate her to give their graduation commencement speech. To this day the faculty at Mount Saint Mary’s College still talk about that “infamous” commencement speech. Laura credits this as her first stand up performance.


    The impact of Laura’s humor on her patients and classmates and her personal struggle with caretaker burnout led Laura to research the correlation of laughter on overall health—especially how it affects those charged with taking care of the sick and injured.  Laura’s personal journey and research on the healing aspect of laughter led her to pursue her PhD in Physical Therapy from Boston University. The emphasis of her PhD was burnout and therapeutic laugher. Caregiver burnout is a serious issue in the medical industry and as a caregiver herself she understood how difficult it was to stay sane and positive when dealing with the stress. She found that laughter truly is the best medicine for patients, their loved ones, and the medical professionals working the front lines.


    Today Laura lends her humorous take on the absurd, bizarre and rare moments that make living and healing such a great part of the human experience. Part of her mission to serve others, educate and entertain  with kindness and humor, Laura crafts one-of-a-kind speeches and uplifting presentations that helps people cut loose and find the funny side of any situation. The prognosis . . .terminal laughter!

    A Culture of Marriage: Does It Still Exist For African American Males?

    in Religion

    Two African American Authors, Dr. Jamal Rasheed and Dr. Obari Cartman, discuss the evolving attitudes toward marriage and family among Black men. Are men even being socialized to consider marriage a natural part of adulthood? Or are the high divorce rates and out of wedlock births making it more common to simply be a "baby daddy" rather than a husband? In our first hour, Dr. Jamal Shahid discusses his books Broader Perspectives in Educating All of Us, Positive Solutions To Improve Our Lives, and It's Mandatory to Identify and Kick Slave Habits. Dr. Cartman joins us in our second hour to discuss his book, Lady's Man: Conversations For Young Black Men About Relationships and Manhood.

    "Depression in the LGBT Community" presented by LGBT Real Talk Radio

    in Blogs

    Many LGBT people — particularly youth and seniors — experience higher rates of rejection, bullying, harassment, general mistreatment and even violence from the people and institutions that should be protecting them. The enormous effort of … hiding in order to avoid rejection from their families, employers, churches, schools, friends and neighbors can create an even greater sense of anxiety, fear and isolation.  The LGBT population also has a higher tendency for suicide and self-harm.
