    IronE Singleton (From THE WALKING DEAD and The Blind Side) on NFTS 9AM PST LIVE!

    in Self Help

    LIVE ON NFTS - Friday Dec. 19/14 at 9am PST / NOON EST: IronE Singleton - Blindsided by the Walking Dead ... an inspirational biography about hope, triumph against the odds and inspired divine guidance along the way...


    IronE Singleton is best known to audiences as the menacing kingpin Alton in the Academy® Oscar Award-nominated film THE BLIND SIDE; the biggest box office grossing sports movie of all time. He is also known as the compassionate tough guy, T-Dog, in the Emmy, AFI & WGA Award winning, Golden Globe nominated tv show THE WALKING DEAD; one of basic cable's highest rated shows for viewership. IronE's unusual name depicts his life story, his ability to play strong, multidimensional characters and has made him a memorable actor in both film and television.On the streets of Atlanta, the fight to survive is a daily battle.  From the drug-infested corners of one of the city's worst housing projects, to alleyways filled with ravenous zombies-- Blindsided by the Walking Dead examines one man's battle to overcome the violence, drugs, and crime of the 'hood; starting with a young IronE Singleton determined to succeed despite an abusive mother, an absent father, and the temptations of instant gratification inherent with the thug life. Football and Faith in God become IronE's allies in his quest to escape and helped him reach for the lights of the University of Georgia's football field and theater stages. After years of struggle--failed businesses, small roles, and an ill-fated trip to Los Angeles--IronE snags his major breakthrough role, playing the kind of drug-dealing, gun-toting thug he would have become on the streets, in The Blind Side. When he is cast as T-Dog on AMC's international mega-hit "The Walking Dead", IronE examines through art what humanity is about and what it means to truly survive against all odds.

    Taking The Fight To A Common Enemy: Depression

    in Christianity

    Its that time of year where we get caught up in all the gatherings, Christmas parties, meeting with family and friends and yes plenty of shopping. We find ourselves moving at a fast pace, with the great temptation to keep up with the Jones. And some how all of these things that were suppose to bring great joy, end up delivering great misery, sadness and depression. US World News reports researched and found that the suicide rate is the highest its been in 25 yrs. And really we just still have a difficult time finding ways to cope with this common enemy. Were afraid to speak to our friends, minister and find ourselve in a pit of despair. For those who have battled depression, they understand how dibilitating it is. The shame and stigma of not having it all together. Lossed loved ones, unexpected divorce, traumatic childhood. How can we fight this enemy and defeat it? Whats a proper response to it? And how can we encourage others rather than casting blame?

    Speak Life Radio ~ The Importance of Mental Health CheckUps

    Speak Life Radio ~ The Importance of Mental Health CheckUps


    Everyone is familiar with the concept of a periodic medical checkup --- some sort of scheduled doctor's visit to check your blood pressure, weight and other physical benchmarks.


    The notion of a regular mental health checkup is less established, perhaps because of the historical stigma about mental illness. But taking periodic stock of your emotional well-being can help identify warning signs of common ailments like depression or anxiety. Such illnesses are highly treatable, especially when they are identified in their early stages, before they get so severe that they precipitate some sort of personal -- and perhaps financial --- crisis.


    "Absolutely, people should have a mental health checkup" our guest tonight is Tish Granville a licensed professional clinical counselor employed  with Emerge Counseling Services in Akron Ohio. She serves many children, adolescents, adult woman, and couples in an outpatient setting; treating various mental health and relationship issues.


    She also is Co/Founder of Center of Holistic and Intergrative Health LLC; a mind - body - spirit wellness organization that focusses on educating individuals in the community on holistic wellness.


    Tish is a newly wed who enjoys reading, nature, art, spending time with loved ones and writing. Please join us!!!!!

    I Can't Breathe. Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Trayvon Martin, Charles Barkley & more

    in Lifestyle

    The last two weeks have been unsettling to the psyche of America. It has been devastating to the hearts and minds of Black America. 


    Atty. Bob McCulloch took his time in Ferguson to create enough doubt in the minds of his grand jury, to not only squash any chance of an indictment, but also decimate the character of Mike Brown in the court of public opinion. Just like the legal team in FL did Trayvon Martin, they used traces of THC, "menacing" pictures and size to place these young me squarely in the box of America's fears. 


     


    With Eric Garner things should have been different. Yes, he was 6'5" and 350 lbs, but he was also unarmed, backed against a wall and surrounded by armed policeman. All while several cell phone cameras were rolling. Surely, we would at least see this case go to trial. C'mon, even after Eric Garner was subdued, and gasping for his last breaths, that would warrant Officer Daniel Pantaleo seeing the inside of a courtroom with a defense attorney having the ability to cross examine him. Right? 


     


    No not in todays United States of America. Not in an country where a black man with a big microphone like Charles Barkley could see these incidents, as questionable, while people like Bill O'Reilly sees it the way many black people do. 


     


    These incidents have many of us in a state of utter disbelief that has surpassed anger. What do we do next? We'll discuss this on this episode. Our guest will be Dr. JeffriAnne Wilder.

    Lymphedema Voices: Sheryl #Project10000000Voices Lymphedema Is No Joke (Part 2)

    in Family

    The system hiccupped a bit and we didn't get to talk for the full time; however, we are back on this day with the rest of the story.


    First time I talked to Sherly, she told me that she had once been a teacher but hasn't been able to work FT in decades.  She has had Lymphedema since in the early 90s.  She has difficulty fulfilling her life, difficulty in transportation.  She has no way of getting a compression garment (which can cost $500) without having to choose between a garment or paying rent because her income is just that stressed already.  Complicated by tumors (one removed and another that needs to removed).  She has written her Represenative but hasn't had a response just yet.  Hopefully, he'll get on board with the Lymphedema Treatment Act which will authorize Medicare to pay for the garment that helps to keep the lymphedema from getting worse, which causes so many other dominoing issues (like mobility, possible MS, and other diseases that stem from the damaged lymphatic systerm.  


    In Texas, we have 4 co-sponsors for the Lymphedema Treatment Act in Texas, and we have many more to go.  There are 4 bipartisan leads and 104 co-sponsors of the Lymphedemat Treatment Act across the United States.  We really need about 200 co-sponsors for this bill to be passed in the House.  We need your support to help the many Sheryl's out there with similar stories.  Please go to the http://lymphedematreatmentact.org website to sign up being a Team Member in your State and go to the "How You Can Help" and send your legislators personalize letters.


    Listen to the show that we had on November 20th as well for some other call to actions that you can do to help.

    The Church gave me HIV.

    in Lifestyle

    In honor of World AIDS Day myself and co-host Chris Wilson will discuss living with HIV from a real-life perspective. How would the rates of HIV infection differ if the church were more involved and provided well rounded sex education to its youth? Should the church distribute condoms? How many Christians would be HIV negative if they were told more about sex than "Do it before marriage and go to hell"? Join us for a real and raw discussion about sex, stigma, homophobia and the responsibilities of the church.

    What's in the news today?

    in Current Events

    Today in the news: Janay Rice's interview which I am still confused about why she decided to do any interview. Her attitude has always been that we are all up in their business even though her husband punched her and it was caught on videotape that was made public. I was trying to be compationate as a domestic abuse survivor and be concerned about her safety but she has chose to want to distance herself from a stigma. She doesn't have to be a spokesperson but she does need to acknowledge some things but you can't acknowlege what you don't confront. So I am done with what she has to say. Continued prayers but that's it. The STL Police Dept Association is upset with the Rams players who did the Hands Up Don't Shoot gesture at their games. My take is get over I was upset about the I am Darren Wilson wristband worn by officers while on duty. Their spokesperson isn't interested in a real conversation he is interested in healing and moving on. That is the idea of alot of people just move on but it is not that simple. Darren Wilson resigned and they are trying to portray that as he did it for the better but it was done because he knew what would happen if he stayed. Today is the last day of the Hands Up Don't Spend movement and I feel empowered. I bought necessities but I did not do any of my Christmas Shopping. Even though we have began a new month and only 30 days left in the year the stuggle continues!

    Politics Done Right - Media rehabilitates Darren Wilson & demeans Michael Brown

    in Politics

    Are you tired of the protests in Furgeson Missouri? Do you think the story is played out. Why do we continue to pound the story ad nauseam? This paragraph from a recent Jon Stewart skit says it all.


    “Imagine that instead of that on a pretty consistent basis,” Jon Stewart said. “You can’t get a fucking cab even though you are a neurosurgeon because you’re Black. I guarantee you that every person of color in this country has faced an indignity from the ridiculous to the grotesque to the sometimes fatal at some point in there, I am going to say last couple of hours because of their skin color.


    Quick story. So we live in New York City, a Liberal bastion. Recently we sent a correspondent and a producer to a building in this Liberal bastion where we were going to tape an interview. The producer, White, dressed in only what could be described as homeless elf attire and a pretty strong five o’clock from the previous week shadow, strode confidently into the building preceding our humble correspondent, a gentleman of color dressed resplendidly in a tailored suit. Who do you think was stopped? Let me give you a hint. The Black guy. And that shit happens all the times, all of it.


    Race is there and it is a constant. You are tired of hearing about it? Imagine how fucking exhausting it is living it.”


    The media and many in America are going through contortions to rehabilitate the image of Darren Wilson. In the process they needed to make Michael Brown a monster. They needed to make Michael Brown that big, Black, menacing thug. They have already succeeded in many ways. The question is whether America will continue live its past or its future.


    What are your thoughts? Let’s  talk. I will also be following our hash-tag#PoliticsDoneRight on Twitter. Give me a call.

    Film Re-Adaptation of Nosferatu now a Kickstarter Project

    in Pop Culture

    What do vampires, Doug Jones, black-and-white cinema, and modern green screen technology all have in common? The answer is Nosferatu - a new visual remix of the classic German expressionist 1922 black-and-white silent horror film.  


    The idea is to bring this classic horror film back to life and with a unique feel to show to a modern audience while still honoring the masters of old. Writer and director David Lee Fisher has garnered a team of creative individuals who are all collaborating to recreate the 1922 film in a rather unique way.


    Nosferatu is on KickStarter at thevampirelives.com with a goal to raise $60,000 by December 3rd.     


    Doug Jones, famed actor best known for his work as Abe Sapien in the Hellboy films, El Fauno and the Pale Man in Pan's Labyrinth, Billy Butcherson in Hocus Pocus, and the Silver Surfer in Rise Of The Silver Surfer, has been cast to portray the menacing Count Orlok. His makeup has been created by Mike Elizalde of Spectral Motion Studios.
