Obama Picks Attorney General Nominee

Written by Thursday, November 13, 2014
Republicans in Congress are expected to push back President Barack Obama’s new Attorney General nominee until at least January 2015. The cramped post-election schedule, stubborn opponents, and the impending holiday season makes it unlikely anything will be decided in December. Too bad. “(U.S. Attorney) Loretta Lynch stands out from the crowd, and not just because she’s often the only Black, female face in a sea of white men. The current US District Attorney for the…

Written by Thursday, November 13, 2014
You know you are living in a world of lower standards when retailers are being applauded for not forcing employees to work on a national holiday. Twenty years ago, the very thought would have been unthinkable. But that is exactly what is happening this Thanksgiving season. Stores like Costco, Nordstrom, and Best Buy have announced they will be closed the entire day on Thanksgiving, Nov. 27. Consumers interviewed about this year’s biggest shopping day said they will support stores that honor the holiday by giving their employees the day off. It may not be all about family, however. Best Buy…

Is 18-34 Still The Way To Go?

Written by Thursday, November 13, 2014
It’s been a general consensus for retailers, businesses, and especially marketers over the years to target the “Ark of The Demographic” 18-34 age group. With the shift in the economy, record high $1 trillion dollar student loan debt, and inflated unemployment rates among this group, the sacred youth demo just may be more secular. Youth runs the world, we get that. In Hollywood, it’s called ageism, a term used to describe the discrimination against older…

Mayor James Butts was all smiles, all night on Tuesday, as he made the rounds at his victory watch party on Florence Ave. and Market Street. He shook hands and posed for photographs, but was seriously focused on the numbers. It came as no surprise that the incumbent Mayor of Inglewood would win another term. To Butts, the question was, “by how much?” According to the Inglewood City Clerk’s Office, Butts won more than 83…

Is It Time for a Dental Checkup?

Written by Thursday, November 06, 2014
How do your teeth feel? Did you brush for two minutes today? Have you flossed lately? Did your gums bleed the last time you brushed or flossed? As a dental hygienist these are questions that I often ask new patients. Why? Most people eat, drink and sleep without much thought or concern for their teeth. Not until some annoying discomfort—a lodged popcorn husk, meat or fruit caught in an unreachable crevice, sensitivity and pain while…

City Breaks Ground On New Community Center

Written by Thursday, November 06, 2014

The air is rare in this venture because, as Mayor Butts puts it, “There’s something unique about what’s happening here. This is the first time that I know of, that a company, that owns a property, turns it over to…
