    Orchids - Lady Slippers - Cypripedium

    in Environment

    The genus name Cypripedium is derived from the Greek words "Cypris" an early reference in Greek myth to Aphrodite, and “pedilon” for sandal.  Ladies Slipper Orchids These beautiful orchids are a favorite among orchid keepers.This is because the fused petals that form the orchid’s pouch or modified lip (labellum) resemble a slipper or shoe. The staminode (sterile stamen) is often showy and seems to welcome the insect into the pouch where it makes its way to a back-door exit and in so doing transfers pollen to the stigma.

    On Why Yet's Watch with Author Lisa Y. Sparrow

    in Women

    Mental health problems are a very sensitive topic in the black community mainly because of the stigma that mental illness is a result of an individual being weak. According to a report done by blackwomenshealth.com, in 2011  the depression rate among black women was estimated to be 50% higher than that of white women. With media reporting murders of women such as Sandra Bland how are we to expect the rate to be anything but dismal? But all is not lost and there is hope - Lisa Y. Sparrow.


    Lisa is a divorced mom of 2 children who lives in Columbus, Ohio. She has bounced between foster homes and mental hospitals while growing up. During her early adult years she suffered multiple miscarriages and spent many moments, like many of us, feeling unloved and unwanted. Lisa used her experiences as a springboard to grow in her faith and to encourage and uplift herself. By doing so she encourages not only her children but everyone she encounters and shares her story of empowerment with. And share she does in her autobiography - His Eye is on the Sparrow.


    Join me as I sit down with Lisa as we discuss how she found the courage to become bigger than her circumstances. See ya soon, Why Yet

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1126

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Penny Booth-Johnson from St Croix Falls, Wisconsin, a survivor and activist who's joining us for the first time. Among other things, she's been involved in "Million March Against Child Abuse," a Nationwide effort to bring voices together in making an impact, being a voice for our children. Penny explains, "My memories go back as far as probably before I was 2, being picked up and thrown into canning jars. I have enough scars on my head and you could draw a road map across country on my scalp." She goes on, "My mother was the abuser. Everyone knew, but no one stood up. Years of her abuse had taken a toll on not only my body but my mind." For a number of years, Penny had been what she calls "a keyboard advocate" sharing very little of herself and hiding behind a computer screen. Recovering from a stroke and news of a brain tumor got her into action. "I knew I had to do something, and determined I was going to become an advocate that was no longer going to hide behind my screen. In September of 2013, I contacted "Million March Against Child Abuse" and became a Lead Coordinator for St. Croix Falls WI, and held my first Walk against Child Abuse April 5th 2014." She concludes, "I'm ready to tell my story. Yesterday I lived in shame of my scars. Today I soar past them to tell other peoples stories, to be a voice. I thank you for this opportunity, and I only pray that when I have the opportunity to tell MY story it will help others come forwards and erase the stigma of shame and we can continue to grow for our future generation."

    The Importance of Fathers in Their Children's Lives

    in Parents

    Dr. Annie Abram and Armin Brott, a fathering expert and the author of many books about fathers will discuss the importance of fathers in their children's lives. Although, there continues to be a stigma associated with "care-giving" dads, through out last two decades the role of the father has been increasingly recognized as just as important as that of the mother in determining the well being of children in every aspect of their development. For example, the involvement of a father in a girl's life is instrumental in how she thinks about herself as a woman, a  worker,
    and increases her confidence on every level. Of course, this is true for boys as well, largely through gender identification.


    A former Marine, Armin Brott has devoted the last 20 years to providing men with the tools, support, and knowledge to help them become the fathers they want to be——and their families need them to be. His eight critically acclaimed books for fathers have sold well over a million copies. Titles include The Expectant Father: Facts, Tips, and Advice for Dads-to-Be and The New Father: A Dad’s Guide to the First Year. He has written on fatherhood for hundreds of newspapers and magazines and is a frequent guest on such television programs as the Today Show. He also writes a nationally syndicated newspaper column (Ask Mr. Dad), and hosts a syndicated radio show (Positive Parenting). He lives with his family in Oakland, California.

    Time: 7:30pm (EST) ...

    Build: We are speaking about solutions and where should we collectively focus our energies. We all see the black and white problems in every day life, the economics complex, privatized prison complex, white privilege stigma, race on race violence, diffusion of responsibility, etc so forth and so on. These are all problems that need to be addressed but often we get divided in between these many problems that we are advocating in that collectively we are divided.


    So my question to you as a whole, which problem deserves the most priority from us collectively in the means of us uniting us all ultimately setting the stage to go forward and why do you think so?

    Psychosocial and Emotional Aspects of Infertility w/ Helen Adrienne & Amy Demma

    in Health

    Childlessness due to infertility can be devastating and is on the rise. More and more couples are finding it hard to become pregnant and carry a pregnancy to term. The emotional trauma and hopelessness that come with infertility and recurrent miscarriages can only be best described and understood by people who have been through it. But, unfortunately, not many people open up on this issue, which is considered to be a social stigma. We are discussing this grave issue with Helen Adrienne, a Psychotherapist and the master of her craft who will tell us about her tested mind-body techniques that has helped many come out of the guilt and depression of infertility and living a life again. We also discuss about the legal, ethical, and emotional issues of deciding the fate of the remaining embryos created after an IVF procedure, with Amy Demma, a New York licensed attorney and founder of Law Offices of Amy Demma, who counsels many clients on this issue everyday.
