Help A Young Mother Be The Best She Can Be

Written by Thursday, May 11, 2017
A common complaint that I hear from older people is that younger parents are not taking enough time with their kids. They point out that Millennials are growing up without a sense of connection to family—that technology has taken over their lives to the point that they lack basic social skills. I agree that this is true to a certain extent, but the question is always, “what are we going to do about it.” With Mother’s Day weekend upon us, I think this is the perfect time to come together and support our mothers. Remember, parenting doesn’t come with a…

Now that FBI Director James Comey has been fired, Washington politicians are left with a myriad of questions. Chief among them, is who should continue with the investigation into the Russian interference during the 2016 presidential campaign. Until Tuesday night, Comey was in charge, and had reportedly asked for more funding. Republican and Democratic lawmakers are asking for an independent special prosecutor to take over. The firing came unexpectedly. In fact, Comey was at a…

Flying…It’s Rough Up There

Written by Thursday, May 11, 2017
By Veronica Mackey Fight and flight. Trouble on the tarmac. Pick any clever-sounding phrase you like to describe the recent rash of airline passenger altercations, and it could very well apply. There was once a time, back in the day, when folks actually dressed up to travel on a plane. It really was that big of a deal. Now, comfort is king. And rightfully so, because you could be literally waiting at an airport for…

And last week, it finally happened. Nigerian officials reported that 83 women…
Looking at the myriad of political news that hits us everyday, one could lose sight that we are still living in the United States of America. With so much bickering and partisanship going on between Republicans and Democrats, red states vs. blue states, and the left vs. the right, it feels more like the Divided States. On Monday, a voice of reason spoke up for the millions of us who are tired of all the games of one-upmanship. Jimmy Kimmel set comedy aside to talk about something we can all agree on—being able to afford quality, life=saving healthcare. The very…
Bidding for naming rights at the new Rams stadium has begun, and word is that no less than $30 million a year for a minimum 20-year deal will do. The forthcoming $2.6 billion stadium, currently being built in Inglewood will eventually house the Rams and the Chargers. Both teams have relocated respectively from St. Louis and San Diego. The price is hefty, for sure, but still comes in less than the deal signed with Metropolitan…

The First 100 Days of the Presidency

Written by Thursday, April 27, 2017
Prologue to an 'unpredictable' presidency By Robert Shrum This has been the most unconventional first 100 days of any presidency in modern history. His shortfalls have actually been politically fortunate. For example, President Trump apparently doesn't know how blessed he was by his most conspicuous failure to date: health care. The Trump-Ryan proposal encountered fierce opposition, would have hurt many who voted for him, and increased public approval of Obamacare. The president also signed a…

Bush said that watching it, made him “sick.” The following year, all 4 officers were found not guilty of excessive force.…
