Nikhil Arora – Co-Founder, Back to the Roots
When Nikhil and his friend and now business partner Alejandro Velez, were a few months away from graduation at UC Berkley, they heard that they could grow gourmet mushrooms on recycled coffee grounds. Inspired by the idea of turning waste into fresh, local food, they experimented in Alex’s fraternity kitchen ultimately growing one test bucket of oyster mushrooms. With the ONE bucket and lots of support from their community, they made a life changing decision to forgo their investment banking and consulting job offers. Instead they became full-time urban mushroom farmers and haven’t looked back. Want to know how to grow fresh organic mushrooms in your home? Want to learn about a Water Garden that is a closed loop ecosystem where you can feed fish, feed the plants, and the plants clean the water? So do I! Join me to find out.

Lise is a fun and talented Designer! learn more about her and her trends on The Ricky Brava Show.
How did it begin? a blonde walks into a bar and orders. well, actually she started drawing on napkins. and what she came up with was this:
Blondes Make Better T-shirts is a line where the design of each tee is unique, fun and conceptual — playing off “blonde-ness” (each destined to become collector’s items). But they’re smart — using only 100% sustainable, sweatshop-free and ethically responsible fabrics. One fabric, Promodal, is comprised of 40% beech tree and 60% eucalyptus tree. Another fabric is made of 50% recycled plastic bottles mixed with organic cotton.
Blonde #1 is Lise Ellingsen. She was considering the title “Head Blonde” but found it redundant. Oslo born Ms. Ellingsen took her BFA degree at School of Visual Art in New York. Over the past eight years, she has worked with the top advertising and graphic design firms in New York, Amsterdam and Oslo. Her work for brands like Smirnoff, Coca Cola, Jones Apparel, Jimmy Kimmel and Intel have won over 8 awards, including the prestigious Art Director Club Award and Type Director Club Award. She’s equally adept in print, interactive and TV. For the last few years she studied film at the New School University in New York and her short film has been shown in several festivals and cinemas in Europe and the US. Satisfying as that is, she feels T-shirts are the next horizon.

Many people are aware that Hollywood is preparing to release the new movie, "Straight Outta Compton" in August of 2015. This is about the birth of the gangsta rap group NWA. This film is designed to prevent Black people from breaking through self-hatred of the past 25 years and emerging from our deep Negro slumper. When we awaken and produce this next Black power movement, it will be an international war for our survival. And we will identify our enemies on this planet and prepare for global warfare.
That is unless they can use the same tactics that they've used for the past 2 1/2 decades to keep us locked into self-destruction. So they are using their militant white-sex (homosexuality and pedophilia) assault, mass incarceration, mass vaccinations (chemical warfare), miscegenation, etc . . . to kill us off before we awaken and prepare to fight for our global survival.
In the 21st Century, whites are recycling the most effective psychological tools of warfare that they've used against the Black Race. First they recycled the "Color Purple" in order to keep Black women in a state of feminism, lesbianism, and intense Black man-hatred. Then they came out with "Precious" which was the updated version of "Color Purple"; but this version was designed to destroy the Black woman's image along with the Black man's image.
This current media onslaught is their last ditch effor to kill any emerging Black Power Movement. If they can recapture our youth (and the adults trapped in a perpetual state of adolescence), then our people are doomed and we will not make it out of the 21st Century. If we get ourselves together and escape falling for this same trick again, then 2015 will be the year for the awakening of the global Afrikan mind.
Join Keith and Latisha, Thursday, February 12th at 7p (EST) as they discuss the SUPPRESSION of emotions and verbalizing our feelings for the sake of PEACE.
When we think of emotions, we usually have in mind the active and outward expression of emotional energy. We equate sadness with crying, anger with ranting, fear with trembling, happiness with smiling, joy with laughing. We consider such external manifestations of emotional energy as the emotions themselves.
We call the person “emotional” who allows the visible or auditory display, or expression, of their emotional energy. Why are we intimidated by their emotional energy?
When we are denying our feelings, our partners probably get tense because our faces register our feelings... we say one thing but they see another. Suppression reduces the expression but not the experience of emotions hence the discrepancy between a person’s inner feelings and their outward behavior.
The suppression of your emotion(s) will likely shut down communication and once communication has ceased the problem exacerbates, becoming more difficult to be resolved. It is likely to fester only to be raised at a later time...unnecessary recycled regression! Do you find yourself keeping your emotions hidden for the sake of peace? Do you know that the very breath that we suppress CAN also set us FREE?
JOIN US as we dive into the topic of suppressing emotions for the sake of peace.

The three most important words in your life begins with the letter I. I Am ----and whatever comes next. I is personal, I is me. I is how I define myself. But is it really? So many times we think we are bringing original thoughts to the table, but manytimes there are recycled thoughts from our past. And herein lays the opportunity to change.
As the saying goes, I cannot change my future with the same thoughts that led me here. And if I want to different future, I must change the way I think about every aspect of the life I live.
Join me tonight. The 'I's have it.

Climbing PoeTree is the combined force of Alixa Garcia and Naima Penniman. Over the last 11 years, Climbing PoeTree has been at the forefront of social and environmental justice movements by harnessing their art as a tool for popular education, community organizing, and personal transformation. Their award-winning performance is composed of dual-voice spoken word poetry, hip hop, and multimedia theatre that dissolves apathy with hope, exposes injustice, and helps heal our inner trauma so that we may begin to cope with the issues facing our communities.
Climbing PoeTree has independently organized 25 national and international tours bringing their performance to thousands of people across the U.S. and abroad from Mexico to the UK, South Africa to Cuba. Their soul-stirring performances have been featured alongside visionary leaders and artists such as Angela Davis, Cornel West, Alice Walker, Erykah Badu, Alicia Keys, Saul Williams, Sonia Sanchez, Naomi Klein, Danny Glover, and The Last Poets, among others. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina Alixa and Naima traveled over 11,000 miles across the U.S. on a bus converted to run on recycled vegetable oil, merging theater and activism by creating a national network that gave voice to local organizations addressing and healing the effects of unnatural disasters in their communities. Climbing PoeTree’s artistic and organizing work can be found on the walls of galleries and museums through projects such as S.T.I.T.C.H.E.D and Shadow Boxing (Created by Garcia), and in the streets of Haiti (Ayiti Resurrect, Co-Founded by Penniman).
Kim Robinson's father, a tailor, inspired me. The first thing Kim ever made, a halter top, was the kind with the choker ring around the neck. She attached some yellow yarn as hair, buttons for eyes, and for lips, a red licorice. Sadly, the California sun melted the licorice all over the place, but every little girl in the neighborhood was exchanging their toys for one.
In addition to continuing her sewing throughout high school, Kim was in the modeling club, where she, along with her friends showcased her designs. Remember, this was the late 70’s when Superfly and Cleopatra Jones were The Thang. Kim progress to making long coats and lace up pants out of recycled Levi’s.
Currently writing a story entitled Street Life to Housewife, Kim assures you that the title speaks for itself. The author of four other books near completion, one is best described as Murder she wrote for the hood.’ Kim's goal is to comlete an eight-book series.
She is close to completing God Ain’t Spelled Government. where the alumni of Dominguez High School, Class of '77 has leaked a government conspiracy at her twenty-year class reunion. The Government does not know to whom the conspiracy was leaked, Consequently, they Government set out to kill everyone who attended the reunion.
Three books Kim rely upon. One is Green Pharmacy while the other is Live Right for Your Type. Her most important is The Holy Bible.
