    Introducing Gospel Artist Duran Buckingham

    in Music

    He follows the proverbial lines of being raised in the church and followed the typical Christian upbringing.  The real story begins when he becomes a young adult and finds himself in the secular world of music and the opulent lifestyle of a drug dealer.  Duran was enticed by the money and power that the R&B world had to offer. He has shared the stage with many artists such as R. Kelly, Lil Wayne, and other A-List artists.  Along with the fame, there was a dark side of drugs, money, and women that would eventually be more than he could bear.   While he was living in suburban Atlanta, Duran received a call which had him leave the house and soon after his home was raided.  It was then that Duran realized he had not only been given a warning but a mandate to turn from that lifestyle and go back to his first works. Duran rededicated his life to Christ and announced his calling to minister to the masses.  From this revelation, New Creation materialized with a mission to envelope and encourage young people to use their talents to edify and uplift the name of the Lord.  Within the first 7 months that the group existed, they recorded with Ambassador Dr. Bobby Jones twice for The Word Network and once for Black Entertainment Television Network (BET).   Along with DBM, he is also the visionary behind a non-profit organization named Stretch Outreach Ministries. Stretch’s mission is to reach past our normal limitations to win souls for Christ. Mr. Buckingham is well on his way to stardom and is a very motivated and determined individual who is inspired by the scripture Galatians 6:9 which says “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” NKJ

    in Lifestyle

    Everyone has a different opinion as to how children gain knowledge. Is it environment or genetics? Do you believe that children's morals and values are shaped by specific upbringing or mentally and psychologically ingrained no matter the environment?

    SWAG Radio Presents: The Flip Artist with Erella

    in Books

    Tonight on SWAG Radio, Yara Kaleemah will be talking with Erella about her upcoming release, "The Flip Artist." 

    Erella is an aspiring urban fiction author from Cleveland, Ohio. Born and raised in the predominantly African American suburb of East Cleveland with both parents and three siblings, she was raised in a deeply religious household, that is, until she left home to escape family violence, abandoned her religious upbringing and quickly became entangled in the excitement of street life and ended up getting married to the “dope man” in the early 1990’s. This resulted in her experiencing a series of unfortunate experiences including domestic violence, federal drug trafficking charges, divorce, homelessness and relocation to New York City where she began writing The Flip Artist. After 9/11 she returned to Ohio, re-enrolled in college and has earned two Bachelor’s degrees, in Africana Studies in 2005 and in Spanish in 2012.

    Her novels chronicle the experiences of women who have survived drug addiction, hardship, loss, legal problems, crime, same-sex relationships, intimate partner violence, homelessness and other issues. She describes her writing style as “Pan African faction,” - fiction fused with historical and cultural facts. Currently single, she has three offspring and resides in Cleveland with her fourteen year old daughter. In addition to writing, she is an entrepreneur, who started her own publishing company, Wrong 2 Write Publishing and is also an English Language Learner Instructor for refugees and new immigrants preparing for the U.S. Citizenship Exam.

    World Call In

    in Energy

    Think of that sad "terrorism" around our world.  Is such "terrorism" being provoked by our dependence on foreign oil and other natural resource under their ground ?  Dennis, Jeff, and Susan will discuss this interesting issue.

    HREM, Human Renewable Energy Measurement.  All these years when America had free grade school and free high school, why has college been SO expensive?  When a student graduates high school the average age is 18.  That's the same age when he or she can become a military soldier.  If they could not afford that expensive college, they've been told to just go overseas for a few years and they will afford higher education.

    Then sad news is that some of these teenagers never returned home and died in the army or navy or air force.  Even some that were lucky enough to return home, committed suicide after leaving these wars.  When they return home, they are reminded of their loving religious upbringing.  They had been taught to "love thy neighbor" or "thou shalt not kill".  If they were told overseas to "go in that house and kill whoever you see" they now mourn for all those innocent men or women or children that they killed under military order.  

    Fortunately, President Obama is now recommending that college becomes as free to our students as was their grade school and high school.  Instead of learning to kill, high school grads can now continue to learn the truth on how to save our planet.

    As an example, Saudi Arabia is No. 6 on the list of dictatorships in our world.  They get most of their weapons from countries like ours and we get a low price for the oil from under their ground.  Instead of sending our boys and girls overseas to get that good price on their oil, why not switch to solar or wind power?  That could also put an end to Climate Change on our planet.

    Types of family relationships we have with our relatives.

    in Relationships

    Family  - Our family plays a big part in our lives. After all, they are our first teachers. Some enjoy and cherish the relationships they have with their family. They feel as if they are always growing and learning together, sharing new ideas, and implementing those ideas into their lives, improving not only their own lives but also the lives of those around them. Some may be proud of their upbringing, but along the way they feel that they have outgrown their family’s beliefs. Some may feel that they want more out of life or that they want to seek something different that is not available from where they came. It’s not that the family values are wrong, but rather that they don’t fit in their quest to evolve and grow. This can just mean that they are seekers of a different experience, one that challenges their core values in a synergistic way and fulfills our dreams.


    This week’s theme has been about the types of relationships we have with people:

    Types of romantic and Love-partner relationships

    Types of friendships

    Types of managers in the work place

    Today show is about the types of family relationships we have with our relatives. 

    Join me Monday to Friday for insights into our lives and how we can make adjustments to enrich our enviroment.
