Ever Wonder Exactly ‘Why’ You Didn’t Get That Job?

woman-thinking-2

*Nailed it! This was your response when your friends asked how you did on the interview for the job you’d been so excited about. You had talked about it all week, and finally, the day came. You looked good, too! Hair done — nails conservatively short and painted neutral — not your usual outlandish purple with black dots. You even managed to wear a knee-length skirt, a real shocker to your friends who never even saw your legs before!

But then you get a call from the agency that referred you to the job, and you hear those dreaded words: “They decided to go with someone else.”

No, not again, you scream!

After you calm yourself down, you may do the same thing this woman does. Continue reading

According to Yahoo News, spokeswoman Alicia Trost told Business Insider at least seven robberies took place when suspects, who police believe were several dozen juveniles, dashed on and off the train at the Oakland Coliseum station. Some suspects allegedly held the doors while some train cars were being robbed, police said. Continue reading

*Oh the things some people do. SMH. Please don’t tell my mama I’m sharing something this crass with you, and please don’t judge the messenger! In fact, my mouth is still agape (Oops! Please don’t read more into that little admission than was meant!) But my goodness, what on earth could have made this woman even THINK to do this? 

Stay with me as I explore the possibilities…

Hmm…this darn makeup brush is no longer working. Whatever shall I use?

Or…

Honey, can you c’mere for a sec? I wanna try something?

Obviously option #2 won out. Continue reading

*This story is still unfolding, but its very troubling even with the little we know. So far police suspect that the bodies of a male and female found inside of a meeting room at a Dallas office building was that of a subordinate and his boss. Police are alleging that the man was the employee, and that he shot and killed the woman, his supervisor, before turning the gun on himself.

Police had been alerted to an active shooter situation at approximately 10:45 a.m. Monday morning in a building near I-635 and U.S. 75, according to what Dallas police assistant chief, Randy Blankenbaker, told attendees at a news conference Monday afternoon. Continue reading

*By now we are so used to hearing about adults overdosing on Oxycontin or heroin. But I don’t think I will ever be able to wrap my brain around this happening to a child. Yet is has, and apparently seven times…

…to a child under the age of five. WTF?

According to Inside Edition 4-year old Tyranne Beckless was found unresponsive in his Milwaukee home last Saturday; and although two people, the kid’s parents, have yet to be identified, they have been arrested but not charged with anything. Continue reading

Six Reasons To Spend More Time Naked…As If I Needed Six

half-naked-embracing-Black-couple

*The Huffington Post recently ran a story outlining the six reasons to spend more time naked.  “No matter your age, marital status, or gender,” they wrote, “it’s still a good idea to spend more time naked.”

Amen to that, I said, and plowed into that article.

However, although they wrote that gender wasn’t an issue, it became clear really quickly that the article was very heavily focused on women, and I felt very strongly that we can’t leave the guys out of this!  So, in the spirit of community service, I’ll give you their reasons for being naked more, and give you the male “take” — or at least the straight / bi male take — on each reason.

Domestic Abuse Survivor Marries First Responder Who Saved Her Life

*I grew up in a family that was scarred by domestic abuse, so this story hit home.  It also literally renewed my spirit and faith.  Read it, and you’ll feel it, too.

Melisa Dohme was stabbed 32 times in the face, neck, and arms by her ex-boyfriend back in 2012.  When emergency worker Cameron Hill came to her aid, she was so covered in blood that he couldn’t discern her facial features or the color of her hair.

Hill jumped into action, carrying her from an ambulance to a helicopter for the first of a series of life-saving surgeries and procedures.  She survived, and ultimately made a full recovery.

Hill reconnected with Dohme 10 months later at a luncheon in her honor.

“I didn’t even want to open my heart up to anything,” Dohme said. “I was afraid, but then I met Cameron.”

The connection was mutual, and after four years of dating, the couple got married a few weeks ago.  Continue reading

Not A Good Look, Sea World! Polar Bear Dies Of ‘Broken Heart’

Polar Bear

*Looks like SeaWorld’s decision to stop breeding orca whales was only the beginning of their troubles. Now they’ve got some explaining to do after an otherwise healthy, yet aged polar bear died unexpectedly — only days after its “best friend” was sent away to breed more polars.

According to PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) says a polar bear named Szenja, 21, “gave up” and “died from a broken heart” within days after “Snowflake” the female polar bear that she shared a space with for 20 years, was shipped away.

Szenja was born in captivity and had lived in SeaWorld’s Wild Arctic exhibit since the 1990s. Continue reading
