    Flexible Spending Accounts and Employee Engagement

    in Business

    On this week's program, host Doug Field is back in the studio with special guests from Visa and Benz Communications for discussions on flexible spending accounts, employee engagement and more. 


    The first guest is be Renee Lutzen, Senior Director of Healthcare at Visa. In this interview, Renee and the hosts discuss a new survey from Visa and WageWorks that found 60 percent of employers opted to offer a health care FSA with a carryover option this year -- up from 49 percent just a year ago and more than double from 2013. These employers agree the health care FSA carryover option -- now in its third year -- is also driving employee participation. The survey provides a year-over-year look at the growth of employer selection of health care FSAs, featuring the carryover option, and what employers see as the biggest benefits and barriers to employee participation.


    For the second segment, Jennifer Benz, CEO and Founder, Benz Communications, a boutique benefits communication firm, joins the program to discuss the findings of a recent survey on employee engagement. Benz Communications recently released a joint national survey with Quantum Workplace that gathered responses from more than 2,000 U.S. employees, revealing that too often workers miss out on meaningful cost conversations with medical providers -- talks that could mean the difference in millions for employers in claims costs. In this interview, Jen walks through the survey’s top-line findings and offer strategies to achieve effective employee engagement and create employees who are truly capable and confident health care consumers.

    He’s rarely discussed today, but at one point, Larry Williams seemed poised to become a successor to the hot R&B throne vacated by Little Richard when he gave up rock ‘n’ roll for God, and his songs were covered by a range of better-selling acts that included the Beatles and the He grew up in Oakland, a town then thriving on military-industrial contracts, and fell into music as a teen, eventually starting a band he called the Lemon Drops.

    Stones. Unfortunately, he had a love of fast living almost as large as his musical talent — and it finally caught up with him on Jan. 7, 1980, when his body was in New Orleans in 1935, Williams headed west with his family at a young age, spending some time with relatives in Chicago before joining his parents in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1945. 


    Born 45. He grew up in Oakland, a town then thriving on military-industrial contracts, and fell into music as a teen, eventually starting a band he called the Lemon Drops.  Although the Lemon Drops didn’t last long, Williams had been bitten by the bug, and he decided to pursue a deal with Specialty Records, the New Orleans label where his second cousin, R&B belter Lloyd Price, was already signed.

    Mother’s Milk #SamiyyahSaafirMuhammad 323.927.2913

    in Family

    Samiyyah Saafir-Muhammad was born Jacqueline Glover in New York City in 1951. After spending her early years in foster care, moving four times before the age of three, she settled in with her aunt, following her father’s passing.


    While still in elementary school Samiyyah took an interest in helping other students do well, joining “The Future Teachers’ Club” in the fifth grade. As a high school student, Samiyyah became aware her people’s struggle for freedom—witnessing civil rights demonstrations, protests, assassinations and riots—and decided she wanted to help somehow.  It was in this atmosphere that she went off to Northeastern University in Boston where she majored in Education. Her stay there was short-lived, however, as she was introduced to the teachings of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad and thereafter joined the Nation of Islam. Within the Nation of Islam’s Muhammad University, Samiyyah underwent educational training and worked as a teacher’s assistant.


    Since 2005, Samiyyah has had the privilege of serving as the Directress at Muhammad University of Islam in Atlanta, which serves students from Pre-K to the eighth grade. She has been blessed to carry on the 84-year educational tradition, which was started by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and his brave followers in the 1930’s.


    A widow after 35 years of marriage, Samiyyah presently enjoys the blessing of her and her husband’s nine children: six sons and three daughters, all of whom attended or are attending HBCUs. Samiyyah has been a mother to not only her nine children, but also to her two stepchildren, her nieces and nephews, her eight grandchildren and countless other children and adults in the community who come to her for advice, wisdom and guidance. Affectionately called MamaMiyyah, Samiyyah’s house is never empty.

    EXPLANATION OF WHAT MUSLIMS WANT AND BELIEVE

    in Social Networking

    "Our people who are educated in your colleges and universities, our technicians and engineers of all kinds, why should they go and make a way for their own people as a nation, build and construct a government for their people as your fathers did for you when they crossed the Atlantic? They may be a little lazy and want to start at the top first, but you were not able to start (at the top). You have put it in their minds that they cannot go for themselves.


    How educated were your fathers when they crossed the Atlantic and started working for their freedom? They were not wise politicians and senators as you are today, but, nevertheless, they kept digging and turning the soil, felling trees, pacing the country for a place for themselves. Today they have made a nation. " Messenger Elijah Muhammad

    Youth Sunday - "I Don't Want No Peanut Butter and Jelly..."

    in Christianity

    There was a song with a ballard by Evangelist Shirley Ceasar that was written a long time ago entitled "I Want My Soul To Be Saved. It went on to detail a kid that went to Sunday school and what he learned made him concerned about his soul's salvation. He had a hunger and a tirst for the Living God and when he got home he told his mom that he was hungry. She mistook his words for food hungry but the little boy was speaking of a soul hunger a hunger and a thirst of righteousness. A deep rooted hunger (which is in all of us) to know God. So that when she offered him a "Peanut butter and Jelly sandwich" his response was... "I don't want no "Peanut Butter and Jelly"... "I Want My SOUL to be SAVED!!!" 


    Our children turn to the drug of flocka and other drugs and sexual immoral acts because their parents are not spending the time to talk to their children and not at them. Show some interest in their sufferings and their struggles because they have issues and they need help to get through them. If you don't get them to the proper help that other help... the devil and his workers are more than ready to teach them their way. ... they need their souls to be saved!!!
