    in Business

    I would once again like to welcome from Buyers Meeting Point to share information of this week's events and news from the world of purchasing, Kelly Barner.


    NOTE: This week's recommended events include webinars on independent contractors and freelancers (SIG, Fieldglass), opportunity analysis (Rosslyn Analytics), and motivating and leading change (SIG, Denali). In this week's guest soundbite, I've pulled in audio that gives us another perspective on an interview series Coupa posted last week based on a conversation I had with their team about social media and supply market intelligence. In today's audio, David Hunt, Senior Manager of Risk Analytics and Indicators at IHS,  applies the social media intelligence gathering approach specifically to security and risk concerns.

    TPS FOR LIBERIA, GUINEA, & SIERRA LEON

    in Legal

    Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is a special benefit that the United States gives to citizens and national of certain countries. This grant of benefit could be based on a number of things: earthquake, civil war, or some type of natural disaster. War in one’s country seems to be more common. On or about November 19, 2014, the United States government gave citizens & nationals from LIBERIA, GUINEA, & SIERRA LEONE who were present in the U. S. on 11/19/14 #TPS. Citizens and nationals form the above named countries who may qualify for #TPS needs to apply by 5/18/15 to secure such a benefit. If a person does not apply by 5/18/15, (s)he may miss the opportunity to obtain TPS.This round of TPS lasts 18 months.  With a work permit one can apply for a social security card. You can work lawfully and you may obtain a driver’s license. Always try to have date stamped documents in your name. Try not to commit crimes. Two or more misdemeanors could cause you to lose #TPS. If you get a Felony, your TPS evaporates; it will not be renewed when it expires. Provided one does not commit crimes and (s)he timely renews during the registration period, the US government will not remove you to your country of citizenship/your usual place of residence. Check my book out for more tips on TPS. If you are in removal proceedings and you are from one of the above mentioned countries, an Immigration Judge (IJ) may grant you TPS. Matter of Lopez-Aldana,If the IJ denies your TPS, you may seek review at the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). If the BIA denies your TPS, you may seek review at your respective circuit court of appeals.Bah. Cangemi. Marcus Jarvis is an immigration attorney.

    Callywood Live - Hope Flood - Middle School Strip Secarhing? - Hot Topics & More

    in Entertainment

    Callywood Live


    Hope Flood is an actress and executive, known for Comedy Underground, Going to Cali, Vol. 1 (2014), The Daily Mix (2012) and Baby Boy (2001).


    Middle Schools Strip Searvhing?


    Two families are questioning the use of strip searches at a school in California.


    A 13-year old and a 15-year old girl were both searched for drugs at Serrano Middle School.


    They say a male security guard patted them down and was in the room when the girls removed their clothes and bras.


    “She was asked to take off her jacket, take off her shirt, take off her T-shirt, unfasten her bra and pull her bra out — literally pull her bra out from the bottom and shake her breasts,” said the girl’s mother.


    A quarter of a gram of marijuana was found in one of the girls’ bags.


    The girls’ parents say it could have been planted because the bag was unsupervised for 40-minutes.


    Linda Bardere, a spokesperson for the San Bernardino School District, confirmed to the San Bernardino Sun that the district is looking into the search.“We adhere to our board policy and (California Education Code) when a search is conducted. We take all parent concerns and complaints seriously, however due to student confidentiality we can’t comment further,” said Bardere in a statement.

    (Promoting GRCAM In Urban America)

    in Culture

    I am inviting everyone on my friends list and in my social groups to participate on my  BlogTalkRadio show Friday April 24th 2015, for 30 minutes from 5:00PM to 5:30PM Central Time.  I will answer any questions you may have about my revised book or my virtual organization (GRCAM) the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement. You can contact me at (347) 324-5232. After you have purchased my book and if you agree with my plan to improve Urban America then I will have you as a guest on my show to talk about your business/ministry, music or whatever you want. If for some reason you are unable to connect with me on BTR then we can do voice chat in real time right after the show on Skype. My Skype screen name is manwell4mankind.


    My next topic I am going to discuss Prosperity theology from preachers of L.A. to Creflo Dollar. Preachers like Creflo Dollar, Bishop Clarence McClendon, Pastor Deitrick  Haddon, Pastor Jay Haizlip, Bishop Noel Jones, Bishop Ron Gibson, and Pastor Wayne Chaney  are leading figures in the prosperity gospel movement. Prosperity theology, the health and wealth gospel, is a Christian religious doctrine that financial blessing is the will of God for Christians, and that faith, positive speech, and donations to Christian ministries will always increase one’s material wealth. Based on non-traditional interpretations of the Bible, often with emphasis on the Book of Malachi, the doctrine views the Bible as a contract between God and humans: if humans have faith in God, he will deliver his promises of security and prosperity. Confessing these promises to be true is perceived as an act of faith, which God will honor. Driving luxury cars, and living in nice homes are not people who dedicate their lives to God. The mission is about serving God and serving people. I was shock by the way the ministers flaunt their wealth.
