#BlackLivesMatter, the hashtag activist movement, was created in 2012 after the death of Trayvon Martin at the hand of then neighborhood watch member, George Zimmerman. Zimmerman was later acquitted for his crime. Norfolk State University, in a bold and unprecedented move, will offer a course in the fall of 2016 titled, "Black Lives Matter." Taught by NSU's senior fellow in the Honors College, Dr. Kay Wright Lewis is an Assistant Professor in the Department of History and Interdisciplinary Studies. Lewis has a unique style of teaching that is engaging, informative and entertaining. Students will learn about the movement's beginnings, its connect to the Civil Rights Movement of the 50s and 60s and the historical references and connections to other hashtag activism. Additionally, students will understand how the experiences of Black people in this country brought about the #BlackLivesMatter's call to action.

Whether it is collecting data across a giant enterprise or from your home, the Internet of Things, as part of a big data strategy, has real potential to change how companies and home owners do business with insurance companies.
Those devices that manage heating systems, security tools, smoke alarms, and other electronics spread throughout a company or a home are generating data that can help an insurance company better evaluate you as a good risk or a poor one. Of course, that can translate into lower premiums for those of us on the good side of the coin, while those with higher risks could end up paying more.
Gwenn Bézard is co-founder and research director at Aite Group, where he leads the insurance practice. He joins All Analytics Radio to discuss what the IoT and the smart home mean to the insurance sector and its customers on Friday, May 6, at noon (EDT).
In this event you will learn:
About the state of the art in utilizing device data, such as what informatics in our cars already can tell insurance companies and the police about our driving
How IoT data can reduce costs, and perhaps premiums, for insurance companies
How insurers have to balance customer privacy concerns with their data gathering
How the insurer-customer relationship will change in the coming years
This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

Sen. Ted Cruz’s staff and surrogates quietly slipped from around a blue curtain to watch the man they’d worked to elect to the nation’s highest office take the stage to announce it was all over.
Tears welled up in their eyes as some took video of the senator -- their boss -- on their phones.
“From the beginning, I said that I would continue on as long as there was a viable path to victory. Tonight, I'm sorry to say it appears that path has been foreclosed,” Cruz said Tuesday night in Indianapolis. “We gave it everything we've got.”
Several supporters, many of whom had traveled from state to state volunteering for Cruz, yelled “No” and could be heard crying.
The speech capped off what had been a tumultuous few days for the Cruz campaign. Cruz made the decision to suspend his bid for the White House in the wee hours of Tuesday morning after meeting with his advisers, including his wife Heidi all night, according to a source familiar with the senator’s decision-making process. After Cruz’s main rival, Donald Trump, went on morning television and attempted to link the senator’s father to John F. Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, Cruz walked into what would be his last press conference as a presidential candidate to deliver a clear message about Trump.
‘What I Really Think of Donald Trump’
“I'm going to do something I haven't done for the entire campaign. For those of you all who have traveled with me all across the country, I'm going to tell you what I really think of Donald Trump. This man is a pathological liar. He doesn't know the difference between truth and lies,” Cruz said in Evansville, Indiana, on Tuesday morning.

For wellologist and cancer survivor Candice Camille, wellness is who she is! When you experience Candice Camille, you get a strong sense that everything about you is about to change.

Tune in as Sister Jenna and Sister Gita from the America Meditating Radio Show discuss the benefits of Raja Yoga Meditation. Raja Yoga meditation is a form of meditation that is accessible to people of all backgrounds. It is a meditation without rituals or mantras and can be practiced anywhere at any time. Raja Yoga meditation is practiced with 'open eyes', which makes this method of meditation versatile, simple and easy to practice. Meditation is a state of being in that place just beyond every day consciousness, which is where spiritual empowerment begins. Spiritual awareness gives us the power to choose good and positive thoughts over those which are negative and wasteful. We start to respond to situations, rather than just reacting to them. We begin to live with harmony, we create better and happier, healthier relationships and change our lives in a most positive way.
With Raja Yoga meditation you can throw off the old patterns of influence and recreate yourself to be how you want to be. That is the power of Raja Yoga. This ancient meditation practice harnesses your natural powers and trains your mind to be your friend. You are not your mind; you are not your body. You have a mind and you have a body. These ‘tools' sometimes work well and at other times may need calm and exercise to get back to a healthy path.
Raja Yoga teaches us to step back and observe life, take a calm breath, cool our reactions, and step forward in the way we choose - independent of others urging us to think or act as they wish.
Get the Off the Grid Into the Heart CD by Sister Jenna.
When people have disagreements, but have agreed prior to the disagreement that physical violence is not an option, they choose to talk and reason with each other. (Such as a husband and wife in an argument.) In other cases, however, some people may approach disagreements with the attitude "I know how to settle this, I'll just go and get my gun and shoot you!" This can be seen on the street level with gangs and on the international level with governments. It's the same attitude, and it leads to shooting and death as a way to solve disagreements. It has to stop. The Heavenly World Peace Culture of Light (HWPL) and the International Women's Peace Group (IWPG) have launched a global drive for peace by getting heads of governments to sign peace agreements stating that they are willing to make war illegal, and therefore not an option to solving disagreements. HWPL/IWPG has had tremendous success with national leadership. Many heads of nations have signed the agreement. Can this same strategy be used to stop violence between "street nations" aka "gangs"? In a special Peace Ceremony to be held May 20 at the AMC Center on 4421 S, State at 3:30pm, followed by a Peace Walk through the community at 5:00pm, residents will join elected officials, community leaders and activists in urging a written commitment to ending the violence.
