Underwear bomber decides

to represent himself in court
Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab, the Nigerian man accused of trying to
blow up a plane last Christmas, wants to represent himself. Abdul
Mutallab says that he no longer wants to be represented by federal
defenders. The British-educated son of a Nigerian bank executive, is
accused of trying to set off a bomb hidden in his underwear aboard a
plane from Amsterdam, the Netherlands, to Detroit on December 25.
Judge Nancy Edmunds granted his request after asking him a series of
legal questions. She did appoint standby counsel for Abdul Muttallab.
Bot John Allen Muhummad and Colin Ferguson represented themselves
in their own trials.

Carol Moseley Braun considering

run for Chicago mayor
Carol Moseley Braun may put her hat in the ring to succeed outgoing
Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, sources said.
The former U.S. Senator was flooded with calls last week after Daley
made the surprise announcement that he would not seek a seventh term
in office encouraging her to mull a run for the mayoral post.
Braun, who made history in 1993 as the first African-American female
U.S. Senator, said she is "seriously considering it."
After leaving the U.S. Attorney's office as a federal prosecutor in
Chicago in 1977, she was elected state representative the next year. In
1987 she was elected Cook County Recorder of Deed. Five years later,
history was made in the U.S. Senate. Braun held the post for one six-year
ternn. She served a U.S. Ambassador to New Zealand and Samoa from
1999 to 2001 under the Clinton administration.
Braun currently runs her Chicago-based company, Good Food
Organics, the parent company of Ambassador Organics, which manufac-
tures several products including coffee, food spices, olive oil and tea. She
founded the company five years ago.

Ethics trials of Watson, Rangel

won't be before mid-term elections
Watchers on Capitol Hill don't expect the ethics trials of Reps. Charlie
Rangel and Maxine Waters' to begin until after midterm elections in
November. It's feared that the trials could overly politicize the ethics
process, but for both Rangel and Waters, the charges have already been
wrought with political controversy.
Both lawmakers are publicly fighting their battles, hinting that the
scales of scrutiny are tipped heavily against black lawmakers.
Over the summer, the House ethics committee released 13 charges
against Rangel. They included damning allegations that the longtime
Harlem congressman had tried to use his political sway as chainnan of
the Ways & Means Committee to woo corporate donors in financing his
self-named institute at City College of New York.
Waters faces three charges of her own, stemming from her dealings with
OneUnited, a bank in which her husband was a former board member
and owned over $250,000 in stocks.

Ronald Walters, renown expert

on Black politics, dead at 72
Ronald Walters, a political scientist who was a
renowned expert on black politics, has died at age
72. Walters, who taught at Howard University and
the University of Maryland, died of cancer. Walters
was a scholar of the politics of race who always
made time to talk to reporters. He was also an
activist, having participated in what many believe to
be the first lunch-counter sit-in in his home town of
Wichita, Kan., in 1958.
As record numbers of African Americans began winning seats in
Congress after the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, Walters sug-
gested blacks could pool their resources into an organization that would
represent the interests of their constituencies.
In 2003, he predicted a resurgent white conservative movement in his
book "White Nationalism, Black Interests: Conservative Public Policy
and the Black Community." When Hurricane Katrina devastated New
Orleans in 2005, Dr. Walters became a leading voice in highlighting the
inequality that tarnished the bright edges of the American dream.

Congressman Conyers' wife begins

prison sentence for taking bribes
Former Detroit city council president Monica Conyers has reported to
Alderson Federal Prison in West Virginia to begin a 37-month sentence
for corruption.
The Bureau of Prisons says Conyers arrived last week at the minimum-
security camp in Alderson, W.Va., about 500 miles from Detroit.
It's the same place where Martha Stewart was sent after being convict-
ed in a stock-trading case in 2004.
Tucked in the Allegheny Mountains, Alderson's 1,128 female inmates
have access to washers, dryers, microwave ovens, hair dryers, curling
irons and cosmetology areas where inmate-to-inmate pedicures and man-
icures are allowed. In fact, the facility's nick name is "Camp Cup Cake.''
Conyers admitted taking bribes to support a sludge contract. She is the
wife of U.S. Rep. John Conyers, a Detroit Democrat and chairman of the
House Judiciary Committee.

IDavT IT (fi itib only 23% of


Black males graduate in Duval County


- I T&w -.
Elected officials, activists, preachers, and representatives from the NAACP flanked educational expert Dr. John Jackson of the Schott
Foundation at the press conference held in front of the Duval County School Board designed to spearhead a course of action for change. FMP


The recently released "Yes \Ve
Can" report by the Schott
Foundation revealed that Duval
County is one of the poorest school
districts in the nation when it comes
to the graduation of Black males.
With only 23% matriculating, their
future looks dim in Duval County.
The news hit the city like a brick.
I know things are bad but who
knew it was that bad," said Carlita
Lowe, mother of a 12 year old.
Declaring that the dismal gradu-
ation rate for black males in Florida
is "critical and unacceptable,"
Senator Anthony "Tony" Hill, Sr.
spearheaded a press conference last
week launching a movement to turn
things around in Jacksonville.
Jacksonville is only beat out


nationally for the lowest graduation
rates {or Black male students by
fellow Florida districts in Pinellas
County, Fla. (21%); Palm Beach
County, Fla. (22%). Statewide,
white students are 20 percent more
likely to graduate than their black
counterparts, the study found.
Citing different methodologies of
computing matriculation, the
Department of Education says the
graduation rate of Black males is
actually closer to 51%.
Following the press conference a
roundtable discussion was held on
what could be done.
Schott Foundation CEO Dr. John
Jackson presented a cadre of

Steps to Transition Through Leadership Networking


Lessen the
pain increase
the gain: get
outside of your comfort zone. \ou
must mix and mingle with all
kinds of people at different levels
of the organization.
Change your mind-set about
networking by finding a good role
model that you respect. someone
who is effectively networking.
Networking is not hypothetical or
methodical. Who vou know and
what you know are equally
important.
Allocate the time; re-allocate
your time from the mundane of


daily tasks to the challenge of cul-
tivating a broad range of key rela-
tionships.
Work from the outside in when
establishing contact with senior
and/or pow erful people. Find out
what the\ like and do outside the
organization and help out. get
involved.
Ask and you shall receive: the
best networkers take every oppor-
tunity to give to. and receive
from. the network. whether they
need help or not.
Have something to contribute.
Bring expertise, and give first. At
the very least connect two people


w ho would benefit from meeting
each other.
Stick to it. It is less a matter of
will than skill. Networking is not
a talent: nor does it require a gre-
garious extroverted personality. It
is a skill. one that takes practice
and time.
Bottom Line: Effective busi-
ness leaders spend a lot of time
everyday gathering the infor-
mation they need to meet their
goals, relying on informal dis-
cussions with a lot of people
who are not necessarily in
charge of an issue or task.


Put Your Financial Windfall to Good Use


By Jason Alderman
Statisticians say the odds of win-
ning the lottery are about the same
as being struck by lightning. There
are many other. smaller financial
windfalls you're much more likely
to experience everything from tax
refunds to inheritances to a raise or
bonus at work.
The question is: If you do reap an
expected or unexpected windfall.
what precautions can you take to
ensure that extra money isn't just


washed down the drain? Here are a
few suggestions:
Before going on a spending spree.
stash the money in savings until
you've examined your total finan-
cial picture. Weigh existing debts,
upcoming expenses and future
needs (like retirement and college
savings) to make sure you apply the
money where it's needed most.
If you routinely get large tax
refunds, you're giving the govern-
ment interest-free loans. Instead.

fill out a new W-4 form to recalcu-
late how much is being deducted
with the goal to break even on next
year's taxes. It's smarter to put that
money to work for you now than to
count on a big refund check later.
Pay off debt. Usually the best
choice when extra money comes
your way is to pay down high-inter-
est debt. like credit cards, a car loan
or student loans although note that
student loan interest may be tax-
deductible.
Save for emergencies. Experts rec-
ommend putting aside three to six
months of living expenses in case
you lose your job, incur unexpected
medical expenses or experience
other unplanned events. Put the
money in a high-yield money mar-
ket savings account or a short-term
certificate of deposit (CD). You can
find competitive account rates at
www.bankrate.com.
Save for retirement. Many
Americans chronically underfund
their retirement savings.
Finance college. If you've got
kids, you're probably already wor-
rying about paying for college.
Budget. Once you've used your
windfall to pay off debt or start a
savings plan, don't slip back into
bad habits.

Is your money just renting space
in your wallet or checking account'?
Are you and your family working
"to just make ends meet?" Is your
grocer, credit card company. car
note holder and tax man more
important that you? At the end of
the month, when you look at your
savings account, is it the same or
less than the month before? If your
answer to any or all of the above
questions is "yes", then your
money is homeless.
"Too many people are spending
their money on wants and still not
taking care of their needs.
Sometimes we have to step back
and take a look at where our money
is going. A budget is a money plan
for both the known and unknown.
You have to look at a budget as a
path to financial freedom," states
Debra Milton, President of
LifeStyle Builders of Cleveland,
Ohio.
Building a Money Home
Often times when I talk with
clients and I mention the "B" word
(budget) their eyes begin to glaze
over. They become almost para-
lyzed by the thought of being
forcibly restrained by the perceived
budget strait jacket. It's not that
tough. Give it a try and begin
building your money home, by cre-
ating a blueprint and a strong foun-
dation.
Get out your checkbook, receipts
and pay stubs for the last three
months and setup a spreadsheet
with the following categories:
Net Take Home Pay- Salary,
bonus, pension checks and other
income
Home Expenses- Mortgage pay-
ment/rent, utilities, cable tv, cell


phones. insurance, taxes and main-
tenance
Family Expenses- Food. clothing.
gifts. contributions, vacations.
recreation. education, and personal
care
Transportation Expenses-
Auto/lease payment. fuel. mainte-
nance. insurance, licenses, and
parking
Other Expenses- Life insurance.
medical/drugs, credit card. income
taxes and other payments
Savings- Employer investment
accounts and personal savings
accounts
Track Down Your Money
Subtract your total expenses from
your net take home pay. Is the
result a surplus. or deficit? If your
expenses exceed your income, you
have a deficit. If you have a sur-
plus, you are either living within
your income or you have unac-
counted for expenditures. Most
people conducting this exercise for
the first time will show a surplus.
which results from unaccounted for
expenditures. Over the next three
months track your family's spend-
ing.
- Setup a file system to keep your
monthly bills, pay stubs and other
financial information.
- Keep all cash receipts and at the
end of the month total them up by
expense category.
- At the end of the month post your
income and expenses to your
spread sheet.
There are numerous books and
websites with tips on family budg-
eting. The American Savings
Education Council at:
www.asec.org and Black
Enterprise Magazine at
www.blackenterprise.com have
personal finance sections with


I I I


budget calculators.
Find the Money Leaks
As you are posting your income
and expenses. look for money
leaks. Common areas today are
excessive cell phone charges, cable
TV. entertainment and eating out.
credit card charges, clothing pur-
chases. electronics and etc. How
can you manage these expenses
more efficiently? Look at each
expense as either a "need" or a
"want."
Needs are expenses that you and
your family must have to survive
and include basic food. clothing.
shelter, transportation and educa-
tion. Wants are expenses beyond
the basics, that you like to have. but
could survive without. Examples
of wants include text messaging.
ring tones, HBO. sporting events.
fine dining, designer clothes.
IPODS and the list goes on and on.
I am not advocating a return to
caveman living, but I am proposing
that you make conscious decisions
about how your money is spent and
these decisions are in concert with
your family goals.
Bring Your Money Home
Building wealth begins by having
a clear understanding of how your
money is being spent. Prioritizing
your spending and tracking your
expenses on monthly basis are keys
to giving your money a home.
You've worked too hard for your
money to let it go homeless!

Sj CBC to tackle unemployment head-on


Si during annual legislative conference


The Congressional Black Caucus
this year is tackling the current
debilitating joblessness in the Black
community head on with several
sessions on the connection between
education and employment at its
40th Annual Legislative
Conference (ALC). The conference
will be September 15-18 at the
Walter E. Washington Convention
Center.
Sen. Ronald W. Burris (D- Ill) is
hosting a panel "Exploring
Minority Business Opportunities
with the Federal Government". A
strong advocate of looking toward
the future when it comes to employ-
ment, he believes Americans should
devote time into learning new tech-
nologies and becoming aware of
new jobs in the green industry.
The Congressional Black Caucus
Foundation, which funds the leg-
islative conference and wants to
ensure that the Black community is
aware of the changing job market,
new jobs and how to prepare for
them.


They will be holding several
town hall meetings throughout the
week to discuss jobs and education,
said Cummings.
Elsie Scott, president of the CBC
Foundation, said that people need
to know that federal jobs are avail-
able, but it's no longer a matter of
taking a civic exam and having an
application read by a supervisor.


This year's conference will also
attempt to break down the complex
new healthcare law through a Cliff-
notes-type guidebook. Free health-
care screenings, panel discussions,
and forums on serious medical
issues in the Black community will
be featured. But there will be par-
ticular focus on HIV/AIDS and
bone marrow donation.

According to Superintendent Ed
Pratt Daniels, the district hopes to
recruit 20,000 mentors over the
next 10 years.
According to the Foundation's
data, black males perform the best
where they are small in number,
where they cannot be isolated or
relegated to under-resourced


schools, places like North Dakota,
Vermont.
Nationally, only 47 percent of black
males are graduating from high
school.
"This means that our country is
losing 50 percent of its product.
And as you know, any corporation
that loses 50 percent of its product
would be left behind," said Schott.

Graduation rate is cause for alarm


Over the past 11 years or so that
I have been a Free Press columnist,
I have probably written nearly a
dozen different articles related to
the plight of young black males.
It has always been my sincere
hope and belief that if we start
small with mentoring, tutoring and
other supportive services that we
would begin to see a gradual
improvement in graduation and
incarceration rates test scores and
juvenile crimes.
Unfortunately, that has not hap-
pened. In fact, quite the opposite is
occurring throughout the nation.
But here in Florida the story seems
to be even worse.
Last week, State Senator Tony
Hill called me to attend a press con-
ference at the school board building
dealing with black male graduation
rates. It's a topic that Senator Hill
has been very passionate and has
worked hard to find solutions.
Naturally, I assumed that the fig-
ures were pretty dismal, but had no
idea that the numbers were as bad
as they actually are.
The state's overall figures are
bad, but here in Jacksonville, the
graduation rates are unbelievably
low. Almost three out of four black
ninth-graders fail to earn a high
school diploma four years later,
according the study conducted by
the Schott Foundation for Public
Education.
Throughout the state's school
districts, white students are 20 per-
cent more likely to graduate than
African Americans.
And it gets even worse; the study


ranked the Duval County school
system third from the last of all
school districts nationwide for its
black male graduation rate in the
2007-08 school year.
Duval was not alone at the bot-
tom of the list Florida was well
represented. Two other Florida
school districts, Pinellas and Palm
Beach counties were ranked below
Jacksonville's 23 percent African
American male graduation rate.
This information is a couple of
years old, but is the most complete
data that the Schott Foundation had
to review. What does it mean?
Obviously, we are moving in the
wrong direction as it relates to
graduation rates a whole, but espe-
cially black males.
These stats tell me that the situa-
tion is much worse than most of us
suspected. It's no secret that black
males are lagging far behind every
other race, gender and ethic group,
but the gap is widening.
Arthur Ashe said, "Being a black
man in America is like having
another job."
Ashe was talking about the addi-
tional life obstacles many black
men face, but challenges are no
excuse for laziness. The Civil
Rights era is over, segregation and
Jim Crow laws no longer exist -
sure black males still face more
hurdles than other races, but it
doesn't mean you give up and
become a drug dealer or thug.
Typically, bad high school gradu-
ation rates equate to poor college
grad rates as well.
Historically black colleges and


universities (HBCUs) are strug-
gling to graduate students too, but
it gets much worse when you look
at the rate in which black males are
graduating.
Recently, the Associated Press
analyzed Department of Education
data on black colleges that shows
that just 37% of their black students
finish a degree within six years.
One of the reasons the numbers
are so bad is because black males
are only graduating from college at
a rate of 29 percent within a six-
year period.
Both low enrollment and dismal
graduation rates for black males are
really byproducts of much larger
issues in the African American
community.
Sometimes it hurts to turn on the
light and look at the man in the mir-
ror, but that's exactly what we have
to do. "The dueling realities of our
history steady progress and dev-
astating setbacks continue to bur-
den many black men in ways that
are sometimes difficult to explain,"
said journalist Michael Fletcher.
If you attempt to get to the root of
the black males graduation rates on
both high school and college levels
you will see that those social and
economic factors are impossible to
ignore. Black men are entering
high school and college unprepared
and not mentally focused.
Education is the key, and we
have to start young.
I always write about critical
issues and sometimes have solu-
tions, but often times I have more
questions than answers. Schott


Foundation CEO John H. Jackson
actually attended the press confer-
ence armed with some potential
solutions.
He stressed that not only do we
have an achievement gap in
Jacksonville, but we also have an
"opportunity gap."
I like Jackson's theory that it is
not simply about the lack of
achievement amongst black males,
but also the lack of opportunities
and exposures to critical resources.
He said something that I have
always agreed with our best
teachers should be at our most chal-
lenging schools and they should be
paid accordingly. Often times our
inner city schools that have the
most challenges have some of the
worst teachers, which only hurts
our students.
And in those struggling schools
we have to place additional
resources and programs. I believe
that our school board and staff sin-
cerely want the best for every stu-
dent, and there are some good pro-
grams in place, but we have to stop
operating in silos and have an over-
all comprehensive reform effort
that targets black males and core
city schools.
Jackson also said what many
advocates of the need for more edu-
cation funding have said for years.
If we don't invest in education now,
then we will have to eventually
invest those same dollars on pris-
ons, rehab clinics and judges later.

County School Board,

Our responsibility to vote didn't end with the Obama election


by Rev. Al Sharpton
Nearly two years ago, we as a
nation witnessed an unparalleled
moment in our own history.
Exhausted, frustrated and simply
fed up with destructive policies that
only benefited a few elite, citizens
in every single state achieved the
unimaginable. It wasn't simply
that we elected the first African-
American president to office -
which itself was an undoubtedly
remarkable moment.
But it was primarily the push that
took place prior to hitting the vot-
ing booth; the momentum that liter-
ally changed the course of this
country that truly transformed us.
It was, after all, the people that
organized and mobilized for
change. It was the record-breaking
number of voters that turned out on
Election Day '08 and stood in line
for hours in order to exercise one of
their most basic rights as
Americans that resulted in this
change.
And It was the enthusiasm and
intense involvement of the body
electorate that created one of the
most engaging Presidential elec-
tions ever. It is time for us to rein-
vigorate those very sentiments.
Labor Day in political terms is
chiefly marked as the unofficial
start to the fall campaign cycle.
Less than two months away from
the coveted mid-term elections, we
are guaranteed to witness an up in
the ante of hate rhetoric, attacks
against the President, vitriol hurled
at Democrats and an overall hostile
environment. In an attempt to gar-


ner as many seats in both the House
and Senate, Republicans will and
already are pulling out all the stops
to discredit President Obama and
those that push for progress.
Engaging in fear-mongering and
other disruptive tactics, many of
these politicians will say just about
anything in order to rile up their
base and get voters to the polls.
Therefore, those of us that choose
to progress and not regress, cannot
sit idly at home come November.
Imagine for a moment if the
youth of America weren't actively
involved in organizing and voting
for change in '08. What would
have happened if there wasn't a
historic voter turnout on Election
Day? Just try to picture if you will,
what our country would be like if
John McCain was President and
Sarah Palin Vice President? No
one is saying that we should never


question President Obama or any
other elected official; critiquing
those in authority is one of our
duties as Americans. But we must
remember that there is a massive.
difference between critiquing and
between becoming unengaged in
the entire process.
Last year, we witnessed the dan-
gerous effects of remaining apa-
thetic and uninvolved in elections.
The state of NJ a long time
Democratic state elected Chris
Christie for Governor and hence
went Republican for the first time
in a dozen years. Elections have
serious consequences. Campaigns
signify the sentiments of their
respective Party. With so many
seats up for grab across the country
in November, we cannot afford to
sit at home. We may have elected
the first African-American presi-
dent, but we cannot think that our


Notable Ouotables
"The history of progress is written in the blood of men and
women who have dared to espouse an unpopular cause, as,
for instance, the black man's right to his body, or woman's
right to her soul. Emma Goldman

"I'm always annoyed about why black people have to bear
the brunt of everybody else's contempt. If we are not totally
understanding and smiling, suddenly we're demons. "
Toni Morrison
"What I think is different today is the lack of political con-
nection between the black middle class and the increasing
numbers of black people who are more impoverished than
ever before." Angela Davis


responsibility as citizenry ends
there.
At a speech in Milwaukee the
other day, the President reminded
us not to relive the past. I echo that
sentiment. We must continue pro-
gressing. But we cannot simply
demand progress, we must push
and fight for it ourselves. So why
not do so in the biggest battlefield
we have the voting booth.


To be rich and Black
As a whole, Black Americans are the world's richest
Blacks. The per capital income of Black Americans is '
higher than that of any other Black population. But,
Black Africans are moving ahead of Black Americans in
building wealth. America has two Black billionaires,
but the world's richest Black is Ethiopian-born Saudi citizen, Mohammed Al
Amoudi, who has a net worth of $9 billion. Nigeria's Aliko Dangote is sec-
ond a $3.3 billion worth, America's Oprah Winfrey is third with financial
assets valued at $2.5 billion. London-based Sudanese national Mohamed
"Mo" Ibrahim is worth $2.5 billion and South African Patrice Motsepe is
worth $2.4 billion. BET founder Robert Johnson's divorce dropped him to
just a $1 billion fortune.
Wealth is: a abundance of valuable resources or material possessions or
the control of such assets. A wealthy individual possesses an abundance of
such possessions or resources. The individual that posses the most abun-
dance in the world is Warren Buffett who has $62 billion. Mexico's Carlos
Slim Helu is number two with $60 billion. Worth $58 billion, Microsoft's
Bill Gates is now the world's third-richest person.
Of 1,011 billionaires in the world seven are Black. Forbes' latest list
includes Michael Lee-Chin of Canada, a 59-year old of Chinese and
Jamaican ancestry (with two black grandmothers and two Chinese grandfa-
thers, both his parents are half Black and half Chinese). Michael Lee-Chin
is founder and Chairman of Portland Holdings, Inc. a privately held invest-
ment company which has ownership in media, tourism, health care telecom-
munications and financial services. Lee-Chin's worth is over a billion dol-
lars. Canadian Business named him as one of the country's richest people.
Saudi-Arabian Mohammed Al Amoudi is listed as Black because his moth-
er is from Ethiopia and his father is from Yemen. The 64-year-old magnate
made his $2 billion fortune in construction and real estate. Al Amoudi's
Svenska Petroleum conducts oil exploration from the Nordic shelf to the
Ivory Coast. Al Amoudi is the largest private investor in Ethiopia with
assets such as a hotel, gold mines and a food processing plant.
At 53, Aliko Dangote has built his Nigerian company, The Dangote Group
into a conglomerate with interests in sugar, flour milling, cement and salt
processing. Dangote "blew up" when his sugar production company was
listed on the Nigerian stock exchange. The Dangote Group is Nigeria's
largest industrial group. America's "sweetheart" Oprah Winfrey launched
her show in 1986. It is now aired in 144 countries and draws 44 million U.S.
viewers a week. Oprah owns Harpo Studios and property in Hawaii, Illinois
and Santa Barbara. Harpo Productions helped create Dr. Phil and Rachael
Ray. Oprah, now 56, produces Broadway shows and has her own satellite
radio channel. She consistently earns more than $200 million a year and
gives via Oprah's Angel Network and the Oprah Winfrey Foundation.
Sudanese-born Mohamed "Mo" Ibrahim is a 64-year-old communications
entrepreneur. The Celtel mobile phone company Ibrahim started serves
seven million customers. Ibrahim sold Celtel in 2005 for $3.4 billion. He
spends his time on philanthropy and investing in Africa. He created Mo
Ibrahim Foundation to award a $5 million annual prize to former African
heads of state that have shown exemplary leadership in promoting political
freedom. Johannesburg mining magnate Patrice Motsepe was born in
Soweto and trained as a lawyer. At 48, Motsepe has amassed a $2.4 billion
fortune through his company African Rainbow Minerals (ARM). He is
executive chairman of ARM and holds a 42 percent stake in the company.
Patrice Motsepe represents a growing corps of Black South African million-
aires who are benefiting from Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) laws,
which mandate that companies be at least 26% Black-owned to get govern-
ment operating licenses.
Robert Johnson, founder of Black Entertainment Television became
America's first Black billionaire in 2001 by selling BET to Viacom for $3
billion. Sheila Johnson took a big chunk in a divorce settlement. Now, 64,
Johnson is rebuilding with acquisitions, renovations, and re-branding of
hotel properties. The RLJ companies own interest in 100 hotels.

Black Caucus Foundation Orders Scholarship Audit


An internal audit of the scholar-
ship program of the Congressional
Black Caucus Foundation is under
way, sparked by the admission by
Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson that
she had steered scholarships to her
relatives and the children of a staff
member.
The foundation's chairman, Rep.
Donald Payne, D-N.J., said that
neither the foundation nor the
Congressional Black Caucus "will
allow unethical behavior in the
awarding of scholarships or any
programs that are designed to ben-
efit the community."
The foundation is a tax-exempt
organization that is run by its own
staff, but with strong ties to the
caucus of Black lawmakers.
The Dallas Morning News first

reported that 23 scholarships
Johnson, D-Texas, handed out
since 2005 violated eligibility
rules.
Payne said that despite a system
of checks and balances in philan-
thropic organizations, "there are
weaknesses and there are people
who find a way around the sys-
tem." He said the next scholarship
programs will be delayed for four
months to ensure that new meas-
ures are in place to prevent any
self-dealing or nepotism.
The Morning News reported that
Johnson had arranged scholarships
between 2005 and 2008 for two
grandsons and two grandnephews
and the son and daughter of a aide.

from both the Jacksonville and Bold City Chapters, recently traveled to New Orleans, Louisiana last week for

which included a weekend of workshops, receptions and a friendship dinner. Their next regional conference will
be held in New Orleans in May. With over 12,000 members throughout the country and the Bahamas, the nation-
al mantra of the women's service organization is "Leading with excellence, serving with grace".


Beleaguered Fisk University has
run into a new obstacle in its
attempt to use a donated art collec-
tion to improve its financial situa-
tion. Last Friday, Tennessee
Attorney General Bob Cooper pro-
posed having the state arts commis-
sion take "temporary custody" of
the 101-piece art collection, valued
at more than $70 million.
The Attorney General took the
unusual step after Chancellor Ellen
Hobbs Lyle rejected a plan by Fisk
to sell a 50 percent stake in the col-
lection to a museum in Bentonville,
Ark., for $30 million. The chancel-
lor said the deal would violate the
terms of the donation, made by
renowned American artist Georgia
O'Keeffe in 1949. The university
has said it cannot afford to maintain
the 101-piece Alfred Steiglitz


Collection, named for O'Keeffe's
late husband, a famous photogra-
pher, and needs the money to keep
the school open.
Nashville Chancellor Ellen Hobbs
Lyle agreed with the school's argu-
ment at trial that it can't afford the
upkeep of the collection, but urged
the attorney general and the school
to propose a "Nashville-based solu-
tion" that better adheres to
O'Keeffe's wishes than to share it
with the Crystal Bridges Museum
founded by Wal-Mart heiress Alice
Walton.
Under Cooper's plan, the collec-
tion would be displayed under con-
tract at Nashville's Frist Center for
the Visual Arts. It would be accessi-
ble free of charge every day of the
week, and would continue to be
called the, "Alfred Stieglitz


accused of improperly steering
three scholarships to family mem-
bers between 2003 and 2005. A
spokesperson for Bishop claims
that the CBC did not update its
guidelines for administering schol-
arships until 2008, so it was
unclear that he could not direct the
funds to relatives.
The foundation has an annual
golf and tennis event, a prayer
breakfast and a legislative confer-
ence.
The foundation was formed in
1976 when there were few
African-American members of
Congress and congressional staff
members. It was formed to allow
African-Americans to learn about
Congress and develop leadership
skills.

Dr. Alvin G White gave a review
of his recently released book
"Education is Not a Four Letter
Word," and did a book signing at
the recent Duval Retired Educators
Association (DCRTEA) meeting .
Recounting life from childhood to
today, the book is an autobiography
written by Dr. White as told to Mrs.
Bettye Sessions. It details his story
of growing up in Jacksonville as a
child whose goal was to succeed,
but distractions often loomed near.
The title tells of the need for educa-
tion not to be something that is
laughed about, looked down upon,
or dismissed in the neighborhoods
of young people today. Education
should not be an awful "four-letter"
word, but rather something that is
desired and achieved without nega-
tive repercussions. Education is
NOT a Four-Letter Word is a must
for adults and young people who
face the pressures of success and will
soon be available on Amazon.com.

The collection would be returned
to Fisk once it can afford to care for
and display the art there.
Fisk President Hazel O'Leary said
in a statement that Cooper's propos-
al is unacceptable.
"Nashville has a simple choice to
make, and that is whether it is bet-
ter to keep the art in Nashville full
time and have Fisk close or keep
the art in Nashville half the time
and have Fisk survive," she said.
"The State of Tennessee and
Metropolitan Nashville have decid-
ed that the art, is more important
than Fisk."

Ask God for What You Want


by Bishop Earl Jenkins
Imagine walking into a restaurant
on a whim and asking if your order
is ready. "When did you call it in?"
the server asks. "Oh I didn't," you
reply, "I just thought perhaps you'd
have something with my name on
it."
Sound ridiculous? No more so
than expecting God to answer
requests you haven't made or
made in faith believing.
James says, "The reason you
don't have what you want is...you
don't ask God." Does that mean
He'll automatically give you every-
thing you ask for? No. James adds,
"Even when you do ask you don't
get it because...you want only what
will give you pleasure" (Jas 4:3
TLB). Your motives need to be in
tune with what God knows is best
for you. John says, "This is the con-
fidence...we have in Him...if we
ask anything...according to His
will...He...hears" (1Jn 5:14 AMP).
Lamentations 3:25 says, "The
Lord is good to those who


wait... expectantly for Him"
(AMP). Expectant prayer demon-
strates confidence in God's good-
ness. Instead of fretting and taking
matters into your own hands, when
you say, "Lord, I'm going to trust
you with this, regardless of the out-
come," He'll honor your faith. Paul
says, "Pray and ask God for every-
thing you need, always giving
thanks" (Ph 4:6 NCV). Do you need
a job? Help overcoming a problem?
Salvation for your loved ones? A
deeper walk with God? Physical or
emotional healing?
Jesus said, "It gives your Father
great happiness to give you the
[benefits of his] Kingdom" (Lk
12:32 NLT). God wants to be good
to you, so tell Him the "desires of
your heart" (Ps 37:4 NKJV). And
thank Him that the answer will
come in His time!
Scripture Of The Day: "The rea-
son you don't have what you want
is...you don't ask God. James 4:2
(TLB)

Black Women Should Set Realistic Weight Loss Goals


5 Ways to Keep It Off
1 )They stayed active after they
reached their target weight. Men
and women who have kept the
weight off report a high level of
physical activity. The most popu-
lar form of exercise is walking.
followed by cycling, weight lift-
ing, and aerobics.
2) They eat a diet low in calo-
ries and fats. Successful losers
report consuming an average of
1,381 calories per day, with 24%
of those calories from fat.
3)They don't skip breakfast.
More than three-fourths of the
registry members eat breakfast
every day. and only 4% say they
never eat breakfast. A typical
breakfast is cereal and fruit.
Eating breakfast can increase
your metabolism, helping your
burn more calories during the
day. It also helps avoid overeat-
ing later in the day.
4) They hit the scales.
Successful losers report weighing
themselves regularly (44% weigh
themselves daily and 31% hit the
scales once a week). Researchers
say, frequently checking your
weight allows you to catch small
weight gains and take steps to
correct them.
5) They maintain a consistent
eating pattern. Most registry
members say they eat the same
way on weekdays and weekends.


As African American women we
are blessed with naturally curva-
ceous bodies. People of other ethnic
backgrounds go to extreme meas-
ures to mimirc our natural beauty.
but often times we try to go above
and beyond what nature tells us to.
Yes. African Americans are strug-
gling with obesity and we need to
be proactive about weight loss. but
we also need to be realistic about
our ideal weights. Like it or not.
you have a "set point." says
Cassandra Forsythe. a nutrition and
exercise scientist at the University
of Connecticut a genetically
determined weight where your
body is most comfortable.
In order to stick to this genetical-
ly determined number and regulate
stored fat. your body uses gazillions
of physiological mechanisms, like


interactions between hormones and
molecules that affect hunger levels.
So. if you're trying to drop twenty
pounds below your set point by eat-
ing less, you're messing with
Mama Nature (and Mama don't
play). When you don't eat enough
to maintain your set point, your
body thinks you're starving and
"responds by lowering its metabol-
ic rate. which reduces the number
of calories you burn." Forsythe
says.
How do we move beyond this
issue? First, start by being realistic
about your ideal weight. Don't for-
get that your weight does not deter-
mine your size. When you exercise,
you not only lose weight, you gain
muscle. Muscle weighs more than
fat. It is also important to under-
stand that you don't lose weight by


eating less; you lose weight by diet-
ing and exercising to speed up your
metabolism.
You can speed up your metabo-
lism with regular exercise at least
30 minutes of cardio, 5 days a
week. It also helps to increase the
amount of good fats (such as
monounsaturated) and lean protein
(think fish and poultry). These
foods can accelerate your metabo-
lism.
Remember, as African American
women, we are blessed with beauti-
ful physical and spiritual features.
Current "ideal" weights don't nec-
essarily apply to us. It is important
to maintain a healthy weight, but it
isn't necessary to go to extreme
measures to fit into weight brackets
that weren't designed for the people
of your ethnic group.


10 Tips to See Results Now


10 Tips To See Results Now
23-Apr-2007
You've finally done it. After all of
those months of talking about it.
you've finally joined a gym. You go
there consistently and you work out
hard, but you're not seeing results
as quickly as you expected. I bet
you're wondering why.
You're on the right track. You're
fired up and you're being proactive
about your fitness goals. All you
may need to do now is make a few
simple adjustments. Use these ten
tips by the American Council on
Exercise (ACE) to improve your
technique and prevent injury:
1) You believe in all or nothing.
If for some reason you don't have
a full hour to train, you skip the
workout entirely. Don't! Even fif-
teen minutes of training on one
muscle makes a difference.
2) Unbalanced weight training.
Many people over train the mus-
cles that have the most impact on
the way they look and forget about
others, leaving them imbalanced.


Make sure to train all of your mus-
cle groups.
3) Bad form.
Poor technique is a surefire way
to get injured. Book a day to go
through your entire program with a
certified personal trainer to ensure
your form is correct.
4) Not progressing properly.
Doing too much, too often, too
soon is a common error made by
the overzealous gym enthusiast.
Make sure to get proper rest
between workouts. You don't
progress in the gym. Your changes
and results take form during your
recovery.
5) Not switching things up.
If you've been doing the same rou-
tine for a couple of months, you've
been doing it way too long. Your
body is used to it by now and it's
not advancing or changing any-
more. Switch it up.
6) Not adjusting your equipment.
One size doesn't fit all. Take the
time to fit equipment to your body
to decrease your risk of injury.


7) Being distracted.
Focus on the task at hand. Reading
or watching television is discour-
aged, as it may take away from the
effort you're putting forth. Also,
never turn your neck around while
lifting weights to see or speak with
someone. Keep your gaze ahead
until you complete your set.
8)Not properly cooling down.
It's crucial to take a few minutes to
stretch and let your heart return to
normal. This improves flexibility
and gets you ready for your next
workout.
9) Poor gym etiquette.
Many things fall under this cate-
gory, including not wiping down
your machines, lingering too long
while others wait or talking loudly
on your cell phone. Be considerate
of your fellow exercisers.
10) Not setting an attainable goal.
If you aim too high at first, you
will be easily discouraged and less
likely to continue your new
lifestyle. Start slow and be realistic.


Considering a Juice Fast? f'-'
During a juice fast, since there is no solid food l l
ingested and no fiber to work against the bowels stop
moving. As a person keeps juicing, there are many
toxins that are released into the bloodstream and not
eliminated. Instead of being released from the body.
many of them can be reabsorbed back into the tissues. ,
This can be completely avoided simply by taking an intestinal cleansing
formula. During each day of the juice fast, take an herbal laxative at
night, and also first thing in the morning if needed.

Equal healthcare access

reduces racial disparities


In an equal access health care
system, such as Veterans Affairs
(VA) hospitals, the outcomes for
African-American patients treated
for heart disease are similar to. or
better than, those of white patients,
new research suggests.
In a setting where differences in
access and treatment are mini-
mized, "so are racial differences in
functional outcome," Dr. Nancy R.
Kressin from the VA Medical
Center in Bedford, Massachusetts,
colleagues report in the American
Heart Journal.
They studied the care and out-
come of 793 white and 229 black
patients with the same degree of
heart disease, namely, the restricted
blood flow due to blocked arteries,
who were treated at five VA hospi-
tals.
There were some racial differ-
ences in the treatments received,
especially heart bypass surgery,
with blacks less likely to have this
procedure than whites, Kressin told
Reuters Health.
"But despite this, over time, the
African-American patients fared
better in terms of their functional
status (e.g. their ability to do the
tasks of daily living)," she said.
"Although African Americans
and whites did not receive identical


care. the few differences in out-
comes suggest that in this case. dif-
ferent care was not 'disparate' care."
she and colleagues conclude.
There's a perception that the VA
system provides inferior health
care. But Kressin said several
recent studies do not support this
image of the VA. For example. she
cited a 2000 study in which investi-
gators from the Houston VA
Medical Center tracked sunrvial
after a heart attack among nearly
2,500 veterans and almost 30.000
patients covered by fee-for-sen ice
Medicare plans.
In this study, veterans were more
likely than Medicare patients to
have a history of several ailments.
including high blood pressure, dia-
betes, lung disease, stroke or
dementia. But compared with the
healthier Medicare patients treated
at other hospitals, those treated at a
VA hospital were just as likely to be
alive one month and one year after
a heart attack.
"All of this," Kressin told Reuters
Health, "suggests that VA care is of
high quality and comparable to care
patients get through Medicare or
elsewhere in the health care system.
which should inspire confidence for
veterans receiving their care from
the VA."

Jay Z throws birthday bash
for Beyonce
Hip-hop mogul and seemingly
loving hubby. Jay-Z threw an inti-
Silmate birthday bash for his now 29-
year-old wife Beyonce at Scott
Sartiano and Richie Akiva's soon to
open Chelsea restaurant, The Darby.
Among the invited guests were
Alicia Keys. Serena Williams,
Kanye West, and Diddy.
According to the NY Post, Jay
brought out a six layer cake and filled the room with orchids. Both of the
stars' mothers were there, but Beyonce's father and sister were nowhere
to be seen:
"Jay brought a six-layer cake out for B (and) they were really affec-
tionate. Cassidy played Stevie Wonder's 'Happy Birthday.' The party
went on until 6 a.m. and Diddy was the last to leave. Jay filled the room
with orchids."
Boxer Floyd Mayweather charged with
Grand Larceny
Floyd Mayweather Jr. surrendered to authorities in
Las Vegas today and was booked on a grand larceny
charge in connection with the domestic violence alle-
gations leveled yesterday by Josie Harris, his ex-girl-
friend and mother of three of his children.
The boxer was freed from a jail after posting $3000
bail on a felony theft charge. Mayweather's lawyer,
Richard Wright, says the charge stems from an allegation that
Mayweather took an iPhone from Harris.
She subsequently made a police complaint and sought a protection
order Thursday from a Family Court judge.
She claims Mayweather hit her during a confrontation at her home in
Las Vegas. Mayweather, 33, said nothing as he left the Clark County jail
Friday after surrendering for booking on a grand larceny charge.
Wright denies Mayweather committed any crime.
Retha wants Halle to play her in
biopic
If negotiations work out, Halle Berry will
take on the role of a young Aretha Franklin
in an upcoming biopic based on the Queen
of Soul's New York Times best-selling auto-
biography, "Aretha: From These Roots."
Franklin has already revealed the all-star
lineup she has chosen to take on starring
roles in the film, pending signed contracts.
Denzel Washington will star as her father
Rev. C.L. Franklin, the legendary minister,
national evangelist, pastor and civil rights leader.
Franklin selected Oscar-nominated Terrence Howard for the role of her
life-long friend and music icon Smokey Robinson; Blair Underwood for
the role of her brother and long-time manager Cecil Franklin; and Nia
Long for the role of her sister, Erma Franklin.
She also chose award-winning gospel singers LaShun Pace and Karen
Clark Sheard to take on the roles of members of the world-renowned
gospel group, the Ward Singers, with Karen Clark Sheard in the role of
Kitty Parham. The Ward Singers greatly influenced Ms. Franklin's life
and career.
Franklin says "the actors are enthusiastic about the project and have
agreed to take on these roles subject to further negotiation," read a state-
ment from her rep.
Niecy Nash engaged to boyfriend
Jay Tucker
Niecy Nash's boyfriend just put a ring on it.
The "Clean House" host and recent
"Dancing with the Stars" contestant is set to
marry boyfriend Jay Tucker after he got -
down on bended knee over the weekend.
The couple reportedly threw a party, at
which Tucker surprised his wife-to-be by
popping the question and presenting her with .
a diamond engagement ring. Attendees of the i.
event included Nash's "Dancing With The ..
Stars" partner Louis Van Amstel.
Her rep told People.com, "They're very happy and are in love and are
looking forward to sharing the rest of their lives together", and the come-
dienne herself told Entertainment Tonight, "I cannot believe that God
has been this kind that he would gift me this man. Falling in love was the
easy part, planning a wedding, yikes!"
Nash has three children with former husband Don Nash. They were
together for 13 years before divorcing in 2007.

First HBCU Network set to launch


An Atlanta-based company is set
to partner with ESPN to launch a
new sports, education, entertain-
ment and lifestyle channel dedicat-
ed to the 105 Historically Black
Colleges and Universities (HBCUs)
across the US.
The HBCU Network is currently
negotiating programming alliances
with ESPN, which includes rights
to the black college conference
games where ESPN currently has
exclusive rights deals, and TV One,
which targets adult African
American viewers.
The channel, from Atlanta-based
C3 Media, LLC, is set to launch in
about 10 million households in
2011, and is billed to fill a void in
college sports by becoming the
official destination of all four major
HBCU Conferences (MEAC,
SWAC, SIAC and CIAA), includ-
ing Division I and Division II black
college sporting events, according
to the network.
Additionally, the "24/7, 365-day-
a-year" network will offer educa-
tion, entertainment and lifestyle
programming, the network stated.
Also, the channel will make the
unprecedented move of providing a
20% equity position to the HBCUs,


"offering direct financial benefit
and long-term sustainability," the
network announced.
"The idea and vision behind the
creation of the HBCU Network is
to preserve and celebrate the
African American colleges and uni-
versities, while also providing
opportunities for their growth and
further prosperity," said CEO
Curtis Symonds. "At the same time,
we are passionate and excited about
building a strong media brand and
network from the ground up."


she became
a recording artist. Jay-Z signed her
to his Roc Nation record label.
Jay even went as far as too com-
pare her to a young Micheal
Jackson, saying that she knows
what she wants to do with music
and is very capable of reaching that
goal.
"Whip My Hair" had been
viewed more than 100,000 times on
YouTube after just a day of being
released.
"She has a child's innocence but
she has a clear vision of who she is
and who she wants to be," Jay-Z
said, comparing Willow to a young
Michael Jackson.
Jay-Z's record label Roc Nation
said in a statement that Willow "has
an energy and enthusiasm about her
music that is truly
infectious...Willow is about to
embark on an incredible journey


and we look forward to joining her
as she grows in all aspects of her
career."
Jay-Z. one of the most influential
artists in the U.S. music industry,
signed R&B artist Rihanna when
she was a teenager. Willow's dis-
tinctive lop-sided hair cut and debut
single have both been compared to
Rihanna's.
He brushed aside suggestions that
Willow may be too young at nine
years old to launch a music career.
"When you have that sort of tal-
ent, there is no such thing as too
young," he said on Thursday.
Willow, the daughter of "Men in
Black" actor Will Smith and Jada
Pinkett-Smith, follows her brother
Jaden in an early start to a high pro-
file career. Jaden Smith, 12, starred
in the movie "The Karate Kid" ear-
lier this year.


Steve Harvey take over Family Feud
"Family Feud" is about to get an extreme makeover, Steve Harvey-style.
Beginning today, the comedian and radio jock debuts as the syndicated
game show's new host, promising an infusion of his own brand of humor
on every episode 100 of which are already in the can.
"I bet you there's not a funnier game show on TV. We've done some pret-
ty incredible stuff so far," said Harvey, who continues to tour with his
standup act and host a nationally syndicated radio program.
There have been some things he's had to get used to though like some
of the answers given by contestants.
"You're not the genius you were at home on the couch. Some of these
non-genius answers I get to comment on, and they give me plenty of mate-
rial," Harvey said, adding that the jokes are all compliant with FCC rules.
"After 26 years of being a standup, I know how to work clean. I know
how to keep it in the boundaries," said Harvey.
Would he bring his own family on to compete'?
"No, I cannot expose my family on national TV. There's some ignorance
that would come out of the mouths of my family that I might never recov-
er from. My kids could go on 'Family Feud,' but my brothers, sisters,
cousins no," he said.
Harvey replaces actor John O'Hurley, host of "Family Feud" for four sea-
sons, who left to focus on stage work and a variety of business ventures.

America spared the embarrassment of bigoted
Florida pastor's planned Qu'ran during
Shown above, a Pakistani protester aims a toy gun to an effigy of Rev.
Terry Jones before burning it during a rally to condemn the intention of
Jones' small Gainesville, FL church to burn copies of the Quran, in
Hyderabad, Pakistan, Monday, Sept. 13, 2010. Religious and political
leaders across the Muslim world, as well as several U.S. officials, asked
the Florida church to call off the plan, warning it would lead to violence
against Americans.
He now says his church will never burn a Quran, even if a mosque is
built near ground zero. Jones had threatened to burn the Muslim holy book
on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks over plans to build an Islamic
center near where terrorists brought down the World Trade Center nine
years ago.
He flew to New York and appeared on NBC's "Today" show. He says
that his Gainesville, Fla., church's goal was "to expose that there is an ele-
ment of Islam that is very dangerous and very radical."
He tells NBC that "we have definitely accomplished that mission."

McBean. Garrard finished the drive
with a 24-yard touchdown pass to
wide receiver/special teams ace
Kassim Osgood.
The Jaguars' victory moved them
into first place in the AFC South.

Jacksonville, Houston and
Tennessee. The Titans have the
strongest position after Week 1,


having a division victory, but con-
sidering the Colts have rarely been
out of first place since the division's
2002 inception, a share of first
place is significant for any of the
other three teams. The Jaguars
never have won the AFC South, and
last held first place with a lead over
the Colts midway through the 2004
season.
"This was big for us. To come out
here and work as hard as we work
and to think that we lost our very
last game (last season), this gets
that taste out of our mouths ... to
come out here and really get the
juice out of our squeeze so to speak.
We fought and stayed in it like we
knew we would and just came out
with a good win," said Jaguars
tight end Marcedes Lewis.
