Streets of Ferguson Smolder Day After Jury Declines to Indict | CNN.com

#michaelbrown #darrenwilson #ferguson #grandjury #hollyyan #monibasu #gregbotelho

I will read the entire transcript before I make my complete views known. In short, I believe justice was not served. A trial would have sufficed. It would have shown the world, not just Americans, the world we truly believe in our penal system of justice. Right now it seems to serve “just-us” and I do not mean just us African Americans either. ~ @CALLISTE

According to Holly Yan, Greg Botelho and Moni Basu 2014, “More than a dozen buildings charred, set ablaze in a wave of fury. Stores — many owned by locals — looted, with shattered glass covering the asphalt outside. Shell casings on the ground, having been fired by unknown shooters. Welcome to Ferguson, Missouri.

This is what Tuesday looked like in Ferguson, hours after an eruption of rage over a grand jury’s decision not to indict Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson in the August shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Many of those who took to the streets late Monday into Tuesday to vent their feelings about racial injustice — rooted in the fact that Brown was black and Wilson is white — and police violence did so peacefully. Others did not, hurling bottles, batteries and rocks at police.” Read more > http://www.cnn.com/2014/11/25/justice/ferguson-grand-jury-decision/index.html?hpt=hp_t1

Creating Wealth Through Health | CNN.om Blogs

#wealth #health #finance #consulting According to Dan Ogola 2012, “…My mother, Patricia Ogola, was an uneducated housewife married at the age of 15, and because of the many children she had, she struggled to make ends meet by brewing the local traditional brew. This led to a lot of run-ins with the local policemen who demanded bribes for her to continue making the illicit brew, driving the family into further poverty.

Due to the difficulties in Ugenya for our family, my brothers and I left for Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city, to try and do odd jobs in order to support ourselves and the family back at home.

My mother’s case is a typical case of women in Ugenya. Many were married young and had several children as they were uneducated and did not have access to family planning. Many were also widowed because of HIV/AIDS thus increasing their poverty levels as they were unemployed. Many others also died while giving birth due to inaccessibility of health facilities. Many children also suffered the fate of my brothers.

Women and children in Ugenya need to lead healthy, productive, and prosperous lives.” Read more > http://whatsnext.blogs.cnn.com/2012/03/02/creating-wealth-through-health-2/?hpt=hp_c2

The Economist’s High Growth Markets Summit Sept. 29 – Sept. 30, 2011

economistconferences_theme_logoThe line-up is phenomenal. The Economist’s High Growth Markets Summit Sept. 29 – Sept. 30, 2011 at the Grand Connaught Rooms, London http://bit.ly/odcsN3

According to the Economist Conferences 2011, “There are hundreds of reasons why your company should be investing in high-growth markets; it’s a world of opportunity. But this is a two-way situation: for every new opportunity in a high-growth market there are new high-growth competitors. They operate not only in their home environments but are also expanding globally. Consequently competition is escalating very quickly around the globe. In this new world of hypercompetition, how can businesses operate successfully? What are the strategies companies adopt to stand out?”

He sold the “gold pants” trinket!

(Since I originally drafted this blog post back on 12/25/2010 the players have apologized and will sit out a number of games this 2011 season). Here’s what I had to say back when it first happened…

The @ESPN.com headline reads “@OhioState football players sanctioned” http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=5950873 Now fellas come on. Mr. Terrelle Pryor I understand you’re young and will make mistakes but to sell the “gold pants” trinket? My goodness. You beat “that team up North” which is every @OhioState football players dream and goal to do. Some guys never win the gold pants trinket for such an accomplishment. By winning you are in a special elite group of accomplished players. Yes it’s a trinket but it means so much to the players, the university, #Buckeye nation and fans. To sell tradition so wantonly really brings into question your loyalty and your leadership to your team, your players, your family. Now your name will be mentioned for as long as there is an Ohio State football team as the guy who sold the “gold pants”.

Trivia questions far and near will relentlessly post the question, “What Ohio State QB who beat “that team up North” went on to sell the traditional “gold pants trinket”? I know I shouldn’t be so hard on you. I made mistakes too. I sold some of the rights (only parts I had 100% and sold 50%) of certain copyrights to a small portion of my catalog (songs). Regrettably. Since then I have gained an understanding that “once in a lifetime achievements” should not be sold and memorabilia is not to be placed for sale. No monetary value can replace all the hard work and dedication, sweat, pain and agony it took to achieve those pants. It’s just not worth it.
