*If you’re not a sci fi super-nerd, skip this story! For the rest of us…read on!
Fans of CBS’ former Supergirl series just got their second summer gift. The first was the series being picked up by the CW. The show enjoyed a strong debut last fall, but suffered declining weekly audiences throughout its initial run. Many fans were left wondering whether the Girl of Steel would fly again next season.
(I could have wept when I first saw that image, prominent in Supergirl’s intro each week. Don’t judge.)
“We are beyond thrilled to welcome Clark Kent and his slightly-more-famous alter ego to the world of Supergirl,” said executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. “We cannot wait to see who next dons the red cape!” Continue reading →
*It may be easy to look at someone suffering from Anorexia Nervosa or Bulimia, and think it is a choice they made.
Our minds may immediately shift to the belief that these people just want to be skinny. They are vain and feel this is what will make them beautiful.
They can change this if they really want to.
Oh, if it were that easy.
While these eating disorders may have started with the desire to “look better” — especially for those in the public eye who feel the need to conform to a certain standard of beauty — it certainly doesn’t end there.
And the most surprising thing to learn about this eating disorder is that it has absolutely nothing to do with food.
Do you really think that a grown woman who has allowed her weight to wither down to 40 pounds, is satisfied with the way she looks?Continue reading →
*Pictures, of course, speak for themselves, and I’ll bet serious money that animal lovers (and those in the London bar scene!) are going to love these photos of the new “Owl Themed Bar” that has opened in London to bring awareness to and raise funds for this elusive and mysterious bird species.
SoHo London will soon host the pop-up bar called Annie The Owl, where guests will be able to handle the nocturnal birds in a petting zoo type of way. The event will take place over a one-week period and they hope to raise funds for owl conservation.
You’ll have to fork up 20 pounds (around 31 dollars in US-speak) to get in, and this includes a few drinks. The proceeds go to a non-profit organization called The Barn Centre, which is dedicated to the protection of owls in the United Kingdom. Continue reading →
The statement above was spoken by a police officer, who is one of two speakers on a video where the subject is “Why You Should Never Talk to the Police.” He is not saying this as a compliment, but as a reason why he has successfully gotten so many people convicted of crimes. In the video, which is at the conclusion of this article, a passionate, informative and often comical presentation is given by a law school professor/former criminal defense attorney who provides a wealth of knowledge supported by concrete examples on how a person easily incriminates him or herself by talking too much.
He provides 8 reasons on why you should NOT talk to the police; even when you are pulled over on a traffic stop; in an “off the record” situation (its never off the record); or even when you know you are innocent.
*While its hard to argue the fact that the emergence of online fundraising sites have changed the way we view the potential to pay for things we may never have been able to before, GoFundMe, the world’s #1 personal fundraising site, may have crossed a line with this one. Supporters of Darren Wilson, the officer who fired the fatal shots at 18-year-old unarmed teen, Michael Brown, have not only donated thousands of dollars on the fundraising site, but some have even posted racially-charged comments that support their generosity and much to the chagrin of colorofchange.org and others on social media – GoFundMe is making one hell of a profit!
This has people in one serious uproar – and there may be something that you can do about it.
colorofchange.org – an organization designed to “strengthen the political voice” of Black America, is asking you to add your name to a letter (see link below) that demands the fundraising site take the page down and stop “profiting off of racially-motivated donors” who, according to their shocking comments, actually appear to be celebrating the killing.

On July 1st, a CHP officer was caught on camera beating a woman off the 10 freeway in Southern California. The officer had already pinned the woman to the ground, and then proceeded to viciously punch her more than 11 times in the head.
The violence was unjustified. If this had been an incident between civilians, the assailant would have been charged with assault. Peace officers should be held to higher standards, not less, so the officer should be held criminally accountable.Continue reading →
(Press Release) On the 5th anniversary of the passing of The King of Pop, Michael Jackson, the L.A.Chapter of the National Action Network is launching a global petition campaign in support of a U.S.Postal Stamp in honor of Jackson. Continue reading →
*If it is not made clear that American Oligarchs are afraid that if an African American president succeeds, power will accrue to people of color, their efforts to block that success will pass as simple party politics, not the racial bias that it is. That’s why a petition went to The New York State Assembly, The New York State Senate, Governor Andrew Cuomo, The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama.
