Br unswick Police Officers responded to the 2200 block of Pinewood Drive at 10:13 am in refer ence to an unresponsive three-month-old child. The infant, which officers confirmed to be black male, was in a crib at the daycare on Pinewood Drive. Daycare workers found the child unresponsive and called 911. Officers arrived on the scene and found employees doing CPR on the child. An officer took over CPR upon his arrival. The child was transported to South East Georgia Health Center, Brunswick Campus, where he was pronounced dead at 10:41 AM. The body was transported to the Georgia Bureau of Investigations crime lab in Savannah for an autopsy. President Barack Obama has spoken on the heartbreaking death of Michael Brown, the Ferguson, Missouri teen who was gunned down and left in the street for four hours before being moved by cops. The president and first lady sent condolences to Brown's family. "As Attorney General Holder has indicated, the Department of Justice is investigating the situation along with local officials, and they will continue to direct resources to the case as needed." he said early last week during a press briefing. "I know the events of the past few days have prompted strong passions, but as details unfold, I urge everyone in Ferguson, Missouri, and across the country, to remember this young man through reflection and understanding," he added. "We should comfort each other and talk with one another in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds. Along with our prayers, thats what Michael and his family and our broader American community deserve." The violence has increased as rioters began looting the city. Brown's family demanded the officer responsible for shooting their son to be revealed but police had not released it. "If individuals are in a crowd that's attacking the police, they need to get out of that crowd,"Police Cheif Thomas Jackson said during a press conference on Thursday. "We can't individually go in and say, 'Excuse me sir, are you peacefully protesting? Are you throwing rocks? Are you throwing a Molotov cocktail?' It's a crowd. If the crowd is getting violent and you don't want to be violent, get out of the crowd." Thomas also said: "If you get tear-gassed it's your own fault." HAEL BROWNDEATH: President and nation responds to crisis taking over Ferguson, Missouri Isler Makes History Fugitive Shot &Killed By USMarshalls in FlaglerJust in time for the new school year, Duval County Public Schools has learned that it has been awarded $50 million from the Florida Department of Education. These funds made available from a Qualified Zone Academy Bond (QZAB) II will support and accelerate the districts commitment to improving and advancing technology in all schools. An additional $8 million in matching funds have been provided by community partners Jacksonville Public Education Fund, Emtec, Inc., Collaborative Solutions, Inc., bringing the total technology investment to nearly $60 million. Receiving QZAB II funding allows us to provide the type of technological education that our students and parents demand, said Superintendent Dr. Nikolai P. Vitti. As technology continues to advance throughout the world and economy, it is important that we provide our students and teachers with the tools to compete in todays educational landscape. We have taken a tremendous step forward in modernizing our educational system for all students, regardless of school performance or a students zip code. Plans for the technology funding include adding high density wireless and electric retrofits to every school which provides all classrooms to maximize devices; developing a portal data system to provide easy access to student data for parents, teachers, administrators, and district partners; providing devices for all middle schools districtwide, and providing a Teacher Interactive Bundle (to include an interactive whiteboard, document camera, audio system, and student response clickers) for all core middle school teachers. The funding will also bring the ratio of devices per student to 1:1 or 2:1 in all Duval Transformation Schools (DTO) /Quality Education for All (QEA) schools. Teacher Interactive Bundles will also be available for all core teachers in DTO/QEA schools. Finally, teachers district-wide will receive new laptops. Technology does not replace quality teaching, said Sara Bravo, principal at Julia Landon College Preparatory School. It is instead a great resource to build and improve teaching and learning in classrooms. The QZAB bond was available to only three zones in the State of Florida at the district level based on their designation as an Empowerment Zone. These zones include Duval County Public Schools, Miami-Dade County Public Schools, and the Southwest Florida Empowerment Alliance. Of the three zones, only Duval County was awarded funds under QZAB II. QZAB I was implemented in Duval County in 2013 allowing 41 schools to offer wireless access, electric retrofit, teacher interactive bundles, and devices. Many schools in the district are more than 50 years old. The QZAB bonds are creating an opportunity to update these schools to meet the growing technology trends and needs. DUVAL COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS GAINS MORE THAN $58 MILLION FOR TECHNOLOGY IN SCHOOLS Police Chief Tobe Green has retired following an internal investigation into the conduct of an online training program. Capt. Michael Melton and Sgt. Richard Evans, who were on paid administrative leave since July 15 pending the completion of an internal affairs investigation, have now resigned. The trio was given the option to resign or retire. Daycare Closed After Brunswick Baby Dies Man with Fetus Tattoo Wanted by Cops Jedidah Isler, PhD has broken a barrier in astrophysics.

The Jacksonville Sheriffs Office is currently looking for 29 yearold Edward Anuarr Blanchard. He is wanted for Home Invasion Robbery and has an active warrant for his arrest. The suspect has a $100,000 bond. The suspect has a tattoo of a fetus on his stomach. The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force and Flagler County Sheriffs Office were attempting to serve a fugitive warrant service at home Wednesd ay morning in Espanola when a fatal shooting occurred. During the warrant service, the man identified as 24year-old Corey Tanner was shot by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force and succumbed to his injuries at the scene. Tanner was wanted for attempted murder. He was no stranger to law enforcement. According to records from the Florida Department of Corrections, Tanner's extensive criminal history includes convictions in 2007 for aggravated battery, resisting arrest with violence and cocaine possession. In 2010, he was for manufacturing and possession of a controlled substance. His family told media that he was bipolar with other mental issues and was on medication. The U.S. Marshal's Service had issued a statement saying Tanner was alone when the shooting occurred, conflicting with a statement Tanner's aunt told media stating that there were children inside the home.

Mobilize asks us to consider what electromagnetic radiation might do to kids growing up with devices. (Photo via Mobilize) We all have a sneaking suspicion that our cell phones are bad for us. You hear it every day: they erode our attention span and keep us connected to social media when we should be paying attention to the people right in front of our eyes. But what if cell phones are actually physically bad for us? Mobilize, an upcoming documentary from filmmaker Kevin Kunze, is the first feature-length documentary to examine the possibly harmful effects of cell phone radiation. The production value is shoddy at best Mr. Kunze started the film as a student, and paid the production costs himself but the film is dense with professors and researchers who testify that the effects of cell phone radiation on the human brain are very real. The film zeroes in on a specific phenomenon the effects of the radiation in cell phones when they are held against the side of your head. Cell phones emit a small amount of electromagnetic radiation when they transmit a signal, and the film asks whether or not that radiation has any effect on the human brain, the most sensitive area cell phones come in contact with. As the film shows, most cell phone manufacturers include ass-covering disclaimers in their phone manuals, suggesting you keep your phone about an inch away from your face an absurd request for someone who needed to, say, make a phone call. The radiation is real, but unlike health risks from tobacco, certain medicines, or cars, the warning has been relegated to fine print in small books that almost no one reads. The FCC regulates both cell phone radiation and the media, and is heavily influenced by the cell phone industrys powerful lobbying group. (Photo via Mobilize) The biggest trouble with getting accurate research, Mr. Kunze said, is a tale as old as time in politics: lobbying money. For every independent research report that says theres a tie between cell phone radiation and brain tumors, theres an industry-sponsored report to refute it. Additionally, The Wireless Association (CTIA) has a tight grip on the FCC, which regulates both the media and cell phone radiation. When lawmakers in California tried to increase the visibility of radiation warning labels, the CTIA withdrew their annual convention from San Francisco and brought in executives from the top cell phone companies to block the legislation. The film makes multiple allusions to the lobbying playbook of the tobacco industry when it first started to become clear that cigarettes are unhealthy, but Mr. Kunze doesnt see tobacco as the best analogy. I think the better comparison is cars, which are another part of everyday life he said. It was years before we put in airbags and seatbelts, because we were blaming drivers for getting t-boned instead of focusing on what the industry could do. But plenty of people died in car accidents before that happened. When it comes to cell phones, it appears that were doing alright so far. After all, we havent seen incredible spikes in the number o f brain tumors to correlate with the sudden ever-presence of cell phones. The issue, Mr. Kunze says, is the threat to young kids. No generation before this one will have had cell phones since infancy, and developing brains are much more susceptible to electromagnetic radiation. Why not educate kids on this issue? Mr. Kunze asks. Theyre the ones who are most vulnerable, and theyre the ones were experimenting on.

Powell, III Zion Hope Missionary Baptist Church Youth Choir Z ion Hope Missionary Baptist Church Youth Choir Christina Smith taking selfie with the Governor Charlie Crist Governor Charlie Crist selfie Zion Hope Missionary Baptist Church Youth Choir New Documentary Claims Cell Phone Radiation Is Tied To Brain Cancer Dr. Claud Anderson is the current president of PowerNomics Corporation of America Inc. The Harvest Institute, and WaterLand Fisheries, Inc. PowerNomics is a corporation that facilitates major business development, focusing on inner cities. PowerNomics is also a social-political-economic concept developed by Dr. Anderson that examines race and offers specific principles, strategies and activities for Black America to change behavior, establish accountability, and achieve unity of purpose in a way that allows for self-sufficiency and the ability to compete economically as a group. In his book, PowerNomics, Dr. Anderson draws on his experiences as an academic researcher, businessman, and federal and state politician to discuss how this can an d must be accomplished through a five-year national plan involving education, economics, politics, and black religious organizations. The motivation for developing the plan lies in the fact that despite the fact that blac k people make up Americas only non-immigrant group and were present in America before 98 percent of all immigrant groups, blacks are at the bottom of every economic, social, health, and political indicator. The following video is of Dr. Anderson discussing how the current generation o f black children has essentially inherited nothing from their parents in terms of wealth. He points out that 87 percent of white peoples income is unearned from things such as investments and rental properties and that the vast majority of black children do no t have those same opportunities to benefit from wealth that has been passed down from a previous generation. The wealth gap is a major part of what keeps those in the black community from being able to compete at the same level as whites economically. Dr. Anderson discusses the role that integration played in eliminating wealth for black families and what mus t change for black children to be able to come into the world with the same opportunities for success as white children.

SnyderThis week is a hallmark in the lives of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and me. Forty-three years ago this week, we began a journey that has just become better with each year. That is the benefit of marrying up. Getting married was not something I had put together. Very few men put together their wedding plans. After all, that is why we get married. It came to me rather suddenly. I was at Bible college and one morning one of the guys in the dorm said to me, Congratulations. I just heard the good news.Ž I smiled and nodded my head thinking about my plans for the day. I had no idea what he was talking about and at the time I did not have the time to ask him what he was talking about. Everybody I met that morning was congratulating me and telling me how happy they were for me. Soon I was beginning to wonder what in the world was going on. I did not have any test in any my classes yesterday so it could not be anything like that. I do not play the lottery so I could not have won the lottery. I could not think of anything I did yesterday that would c ause all of this congratulatory remarks in my direction. Finally, when I had about as much as I could take, I asked somebody, What is everybody congratulating me for?Ž The person that I queried looked at me, broke out in laughter and said, Man, you got to be kidding!Ž Then he turned around, walking away laughing every step of the way. I went to my class, found my seat and got situated then one of the young ladies passed by, patted me on the shoulder an d said, I am so happy for you and I think it is a wonderful thing. And I know you are going to be happy for the rest of your lif e.Ž Well, I had had it. I looked at her and very firmly said, What are you so happy about?Ž Your wedding,Ž she said laughing, youre getting married.Ž Oh,Ž I said, nodding my head. Thank you very much.Ž Then what she said dawned on me. I looked at her and said, Im getting what?Ž Silly boy,Ž she said, laughing hysterically, it's all over campus so it must be true.Ž I then had to think about this situation I was in. Everybody on the campus knew I was getting married, except me. Was I still sleeping? Was this just a dream I am having? I began to think about the events the preceding evening, and remembered a little conversation I had with the girl I was now supposed to be getting married to. In the course of our conversation, as I remembered it at the time, she said something to the effect, Wouldnt it be great to get married.Ž As I recalled the conversation, I nodded my head and said something to the effect, Yea, I guess it would be.Ž That was the end of the conversation as far as I was concerned, but the beginning of an ongoing conversation as far as someone else was concerned. Why is it that the groom-to-be is always the last one to know? Then I asked one of the girls in the hallway, When am I getting married?Ž At the time, I did not have the foggiest idea. She turned away laughing and muttering to herself something to the effect that I had a really good sense of humor. Believe me, I was not laughing. As it turned out, me and the young lady I was to be married to, were engaged to be married and, I do not want to pry into this point very much, the wedding dress already purchased.Ž As it turned out, it was the best thing that ever happened to me. Looking back over life, most of the good things that have happened to me were never of my doing. I'm convinced that is the way God works. If you are doing what you want to do, you are probably not doing what God wants you to do. At least I have developed that philosophy to this point of my life. Some things in life I am rather good at planning, a wedding not being one of them; not even close. After all these years, I can still remember that wonderful day when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were united in holy matrimony. Our wedding was rather simple and the focus point of the wedding was the wedding vows. When I said, I doŽ it clinched the deal and I was married and I have been doing it ever since. I have said many words in my life, and written thousands and thousands of words, but the most important words that have changed my life were those words, I do.Ž The Bible has a lot to say about marriage and husbands and wives. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so le t the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for itŽ (Ephesians 5:24-25). There are some empty words that we use every day but every once in a while we say a word or two that fills our life with joy unspeakable and full of glory. Rev. James L.
