The Concert was Great


After going to a free concert in the middle of Prospect Park I feel as though I could be a Superstar. Sure it takes hard work and talent, but Chaka Khan sang inspiration into me last night.
With her enchanting lyrics and soothing beats she could sing the alphabet and make it sound sexy. That kind of vibe spread through the crowd like wildfire and we all loved it. Ms. Khan sang some jazz jams that made everybody within earshot croon. And when she got to the hits we all almost melted!
Chaka put life back into me. Watching her perform reminded me of my passion for acting and being on stage. With her dancing moves and expressionistic words she turned the stage into a Chaka Khan juke box. Moving and sounding just like the original recordings! She had the same fire she had from the ’70s. It was magical.
I only wish I could grace the stage like that as a performer.

Hidden Dangers

splenda I watched a Youtube video on Splenda, today. And the issue was presented as if there is a conspiracy behind the marketing tactics used by the brand.

When we get into them trying to deceive the general public we realize that they have been lying or at the very least been inaccurate on their labels. Splenda has 4 calories per teaspoon, contains Chloride, and causes Migranes. If those things were printed on the labels no one would buy it. Why would anyone want to expose their bodies to toxins that can actually cause them harm?

Dr. Mercola, I heed your warning clearly

The Food industry they dont give a shit about me

They push products that have Chlorine and MaltoDextrin

With what I know now I’ll throw Splenda in the damn bin

They’ve made a concoction, of which to taste like sugar

I know Chlorine is in some foods but its not organic in nature

Now this stuff is oh, so sweet and they tell Diabetics its safe

But they’re drinking bulking agents and more sugar, in this case

Splenda lies about their Calorie Count and that is just sad

So Im eating 1 gram of sugar with 4 Calories and now I m mad

But Splenda will give me a headache, after years so I see

So I’ll just take this DDT and Agent Orange out my Tea

At a Book Festival??

Just recently read an article about a woman who showed resilience at her job after facing censorship. Jordan Alam is a New
York City based writer who worked with the Brooklyn Zine Festival that is coming up on April 25th and 26th. When Jordan proposed a Black Lives Matter panel to be present at the Festival they refused. They alluded to the topic of police brutality and oppression as being too political of a topic at such a fun-loving event.

It is no surprise to me that a group whose sole purpose is to give the people a voice would discriminate against the black race. I completely felt Jordan’s outrage over the situation. From her trying to explain how having this group at the panel will not promote apprehension, to her being chastised in work related emails, to her finally sending in her resignation. This woman is a true activist in my eyes, because she stood up and put her foot down. Sometimes you gotta get in these peoples’ faces!

I respect her decision to leave the job because if she stayed she might have been forced to further sugar coat her views and philosophies. Since Jordan’s resignation, the Zine Fest has decided to add the Black Lives Matter group to the panel. A representative will be answering questions about their prospects for the community and its relation to education.

Anyone who has the free time this Sat and Sun should definitely check out all the creative talent in Downtown Brooklyn at the Zine Fest. I leave you with that information and the link to  Jordan’s website so you can read her first hand experience of the face of Prejudice.

Jordan’s Story

Help is on the Way

If you find yourself living in a shoe box of an apartment in the city, chances are you may have experienced maintenance issues in your building. Usually a result of the supers’ lack of care. But  sometimes, without provocation an emergency can change a person’s living situation forever. Sadly, enough the story doesn’t end there.

If a person experiences a fire, flood or other natural disaster and are rendered homeless a donation based program known as the Red Cross comes in to pick up the shattered pieces. They are limited in what they can do but offer many resources for those who have lost everything. Registration upon arrival allows a survivor to receive medical treatment, housing for a few days, and a small stipend which is placed on a prepaid debit card.

The Red Cross is volunteer based and works completely off of the graciousness of others. From the outreach team that are dispatched as soon as they are alerted about the disaster to the  advisor  who helps contact legal offices on behalf of the survivors are all volunteer participants. Even the money used in order to operate this program is donated and granted.

The Red Cross is a not for profit organization that has several locations, including one in Brooklyn at 4th Avenue in Park Slope. redcross
