    Racism may accelerate aging on a cellular level, study finds
    JANUARY 15, 2014 AT 12:22 PM ET

    Can experiencing discrimination lead to premature aging? Researchers think there could be a connection.

    According the Centers for Disease Control, African-American men die six to seven years earlier than white men. But no one is exactly sure why. David H. Chae, a social epidemiologist at the University of Maryland School of Public Health, thinks the psycho-social strain of discrimination may explain the disparity.

    “We can all relate to how the experience of being treated unfairly impacts us physiologically,” he said. “There’s a cascade of biochemical reactions. Your heart rate rises, your muscles clench.” Dealing with prejudice — and all its effects on your life — is inherently stressful, he said, and that may lead to accelerated aging.

    Things that make you go hmmm???

    Ok, so I’ve been posting pics of Lupita N’yongo all week. She is a fabulously dark-skinned sister who flaunts her flawless skin and lovely complexion as proudly as she should.

    So check out this pic from a photo shoot for Vanity Fair mag. Someone posted it on twitter. People are wondering if they actually lightened her skin? Because the left pic is natural light and the right one is…decidedly lighter. I”m gonna give VF the benefit of the doubt, but ALOT of the white fashion mags do this regularly, lightening skin and the like. So I’m giving them a half “side-eyed”.

    • Alma98

      It’s the lighting lamh, I’ve seen pics where she’s not as dark.

    • My first impression of the Vanity Fair pic isn’t, “Oh, they purposely white washed her!”, but because the fashion industry is racist and has a history of lightening darker skin tones to make them more acceptable to their white readership, I can understand why people are upset. Miguel Reveriego, the photographer, and Vanity Fair, should address the concerns.

    Evening peeps.

    Back at home after another long day at work, but at least I’m off tomorrow so I can sleep in late.

    So I finally go in contact with that recruiter. I called her on my 9 am break. So seems she was calling because she had still never received the “verification of employment” form from my current employer. Ya know, the form I had my sister fax to her last Monday and the form which she never told me whether or not she received?

    Anyway, so she needed me to fax a copy of my current last pay stub to her and once she received it she could go ahead and complete the recruiting process. First of all, I was like that’s what you called me for, she could have just left the message on my voicemail and I could have not wasted my one actual break today trying to call her.

    So ok, I went ahead to HR and ask if I could get a “verficiation of employment” form and the clerk was like sure and filled me out one right then and there. So I took the form and my copy of my latest pay stub (I figured let me send that too, then she can see what my current salary is and maybe it will give her a kinda picture of how much I get paid for my experience) and the competed verification form and I faxed it to the number she provided and I wrote on the fax coversheet: “Please let me know when/if you receive these forms at my email address…” and I provided my email address. I waited for the “OK” confirmation page from our fax machine and I went back to work.

    Periodically, I checked my email to see if I had received anything from ole girl, letting me know, as I requested, that she had received the fax. Welp, 6 hours later and not a damn email. Ugh…I specifically asked that woman to please let me know if she got it and nothing…PET PEEVE!!!!!

    Ugh….I’ll assume she has the form and just keep it moving….STILL

    Water Contamination In West Virginia May Have Started Weeks Ago, Residents Believe

    JANUARY 14, 2014 AT 2:53 PM

    CHARLESTON, WEST VIRGINIA — When Rich McGervey first heard about the major chemical spill into his water supply, he immediately thought of his five-year-old daughter.

    “My mind starts running in reverse,” McGervey, a Charleston-based attorney, said. “She had taken a bath Tuesday night, and Wednesday night. And Wednesday night as we were going to bed, she rips up her shirt and starts scratching all over and she says ‘my whole body is itching!’ And she’s never done that before.”

    The incident has McGervey thinking that this chemical might have spilled into his water long before it was reported on Thursday.

    He’s not the only one.

    Umph………………..*rolls eyes at this Peter LeClair*
    The Long-Term Unemployed Sound Off: ‘I Will Never Vote For A Republican Again’

    On Tuesday, a potential agreement to extend benefits for those who have been out of work for six months or more fell apart over squabbling about procedural disagreements in the Senate. That fight came two and a half weeks after those checks stopped going out tomillions of Americans, and it doesn’t look like it will be resolved in the next two weeks. Congress let the program lapse at the end of the year, which offered support to the jobless after their state benefits ran out, drying up a lifeline for those who are struggling to find a new job.

    The people who have been left without that support are incensed, and the anger reaches across party lines. In an email to ThinkProgress, Peter LeClair, an out of work investment manager from New York, said he has been a lifelong Republican. But he “will never vote for a Republican, as long as I live” after watching them say that relying on unemployment benefits makes people dependent. “I am incensed with this Rand Paul,” he said, who has said extending the benefits would “do a disservice” to those who were relying on them. “He says I am lazy… I am not lazy, how dare he. He doesn’t even know me.”

    ’12 Years a Slave’ marks MLK Day re-release with ‘I Have a Dream’ ad — EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

    How do you plan to spend Martin Luther King Jr. Day this year? Fox Searchlight has a suggestion: Go see 12 Years a Slave, which the studio will re-release into 700 theaters nationwide on Friday. To mark the occasion, the studio made a recut 12 Years promo that combines footage of the film and audio from King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, delivered from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during 1963′s March on Washington. King gave his speech not far from where the real-life Solomon Northup was drugged, kidnapped, and sold into slavery in 1841…

    So I sent Radio Girl that piece about Schweitzer. Reminder: she lives in Montana. She confirmed something I thought. Candidate Obama won that primary resoundingly even after the then-governor went all in for HRC. So we have to wonder if he is flinging mud in an audition to be her undercard. He reneged on something with the gay folks in his State but has always been the lesser of two evils, whoever the R candidate. Could ne interesting. Her surrogates are everywhere in this stealth campaign!

      Makes sense to me. PBO’s primary victories emasculated and embarrassed the HRC folks who expected they’d have more sway over their constituents than an upstart black senator in his first term. Much to their surprise, they discovered they did not. The criticism of PBO always feels very personal to me and this confirms it.

    — —Dem leaders press GOP on minimum wage – –

    — —Democratic leaders in Congress and the White House upped their pressure on Republicans Wednesday to increase the minimum wage.

    The push is part of a broader election-year campaign designed to highlight the stark differences between the parties when it comes to tackling income inequality and the wealth gap, both of which have grown significantly since the Great Recession.

    Democrats are hoping their fight for a minimum-wage hike – alongside other policy priorities that include an extension of emergency jobless benefits and new funding for food stamps – will convince voters ahead of November’s mid-terms that they are the party of the working class.

    “You can’t build a rich economy on the backs of poor workers,” Rep. George Miller (Calif.), senior Democrat on the House Education and Workforce Committee, said during a pep-rally for the wage hike in the Capitol. “You just can’t do it.”

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) piled on, framing the wage hike as both “a moral issue” and an economic benefit.

    “It’s an issue of fairness as to who we are as a country,” she said. “So we will be persistent, we will be dissatisfied [and] we will be relentless until we make this happen.”

    — — –SNIP — –

    But actual insurance industry leaders have been singing a very
    different tune at the JP Morgan health care conference currently taking place in San Francisco. Many insurance executives are predicting that the Obamacare marketplaces will be a robust and growing segment of the U.S. health care industry despite Healthcare.gov’s botched rollout, and saying that the age and health demographics of those who have already enrolled in new ACA plans are on track with their expectations.

    “Despite the near-term uncertainty, we believe exchanges will be
    growing as a big part of the market over time,” WellPoint Inc. CEO
    Joseph Swedish told conference attendees on Tuesday. “We are more focused on the end game of exchanges than the twists and turns in the near term.”

    Swedish also believes that enrollment will continue to surge over the next three months. “We saw a sizable uptick at the end of December, concurrent with the first enrollment deadline, and we expect a similar bump in March, in front of the second primary enrollment deadline.” The Obama administration recently reported that about 2.2 million Americans have enrolled in plans through state and federal Obamacare marketplaces.

  • So, Ciara is pregnant with Future’s baby. Dude has 3 or 4 kids with 3 different women. *smh* Here’s what she says about that:

    This is my family. They are amazing women. I like to say
    they are. I wanted to capture the moment of all of us being together,
    and shed the light on what it is with my family. It’s kind of a blended
    family concept and I wanted to shed the light on that because it’s so

    It’s all about love and it’s all about positivity and that’s what I’m
    about. His family is my family. Anyone that comes with him, it has to be
    love and that’s the same for me. So that’s how I live.

    You know you can’t over think things. When things are right and people
    can have their own way of how they look at things, and how they want to
    judge and speak on something but you know what something is and that’s
    what matters.

    It’s called “standards”, Ciara. Get some.

    – – —Subpoenas could be issued as soon as Monday for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s former deputy chief of staff and campaign manager, whose heads rolled after explosive ­e-mails implicated them in the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal, sources said.

    And the ongoing Bridgegate investigation has paralyzed Christie’s office, with a ripple effect that’s frozen several top moves and appointments as a result of the mess.

    Sources said on Sunday that state Senate Democrats have delayed the confirmation hearing for Kevin O’Dowd, Christie’s nominee for attorney general, who is his current chief of staff.

    Sources said Democratic legislators want time to gather more information so they can grill O’Dowd on what he knew about the closure of lanes on the country’s busiest bridge as part of a political

    As a result, Christie has had to agree to keep acting Attorney General John Hoffman in place indefinitely, withdrawing his nomination for a judgeship.The scandal also means O’Dowd’s named replacement, Regina Egea, can’t move up from her post overseeing state agencies.

    Obama to Dems: I’ll Act With or Without Congress

    By THE ASSOCIATED PRESSJAN. 15, 2014, 7:48 P.M. E.S.T.

    WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has told Senate Democrats he plans to use his executive authority to act in 2014 when Congress stands in his way.

    Obama met with senators from his own party Wednesday at the White House. The White House says Obama and Democrats discussed proposals to raise the minimum wage and efforts to pass a comprehensive immigration overhaul. Education initiatives and jobs measures were also on the agenda.

    The White House says Obama wants to work with Congress to make progress, but will also act on his own to get things done.

    The meeting was the first such session of 2014 and comes two weeks before Obama is set to deliver his State of the Union address.

    The senators left the White House without speaking to reporters.

      CDC — a REPUTABLE study.
      Bet it’s tied into Obamacare or a FLOTUS project.

      Hmm…but the media and movies tell me that guys like me shirk our responsibilities and we’re nothing but walking sperm banks. The CDC can’t be right, can they?

    TRMS reports that Reid Schar has been appointed as lead counsel and he’s the dude who prosecuted Blagojevich. Christie Gang is in trouble. Real trouble.


    Former Assistant U.S. Attorney Reid Schar Brought on as Special Counsel to Aid Assembly Investigatory Committee on GWB Lane Closing QuestionsBy James Sverapa IV | January 15th, 2014 – 2:28pm

    (TRENTON) – The New Jersey General Assembly on Wednesday retained former Assistant U.S. Attorney Reid Schar as special counsel for the newly created committee charged with continuing the inquiry into questions surrounding the decision to close access lanes to the George Washington Bridge and other matters raising concerns about the abuse of government power.

    Mr. Schar is a partner at the law firm of Jenner & Block LLP and co-chairs the firm’s White Collar Defense and Investigations Practice.

    While at the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Northern District of Illinois, Mr. Schar was the lead investigator and prosecutor in both corruption trials of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Since joining Jenner & Block in July 2012, he has led a number of global internal and government investigations on behalf of a variety of clients, including Fortune 500 companies and government organizations. Clients regularly turn to Mr. Schar for counsel and advice on issues of importance.

    “It’s vital to have someone of the caliber of Mr. Schar joining us in this effort,” said Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (D-Hudson/Bergen). “A potential misuse of taxpayer resources for political purposes is a serious matter that requires an astute legal eye with experience in this realm to help guide the process. I look forward to the assistance he will offer under the leadership of Chairman Wisniewski.”

    “We will move forward with this investigation deliberately and methodically,” said Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald (D-Camden/Burlington). “Mr. Schar’s stellar experience and record of success will add to the great work already undertaken by Chairman Wisniewski and ensure we get the answers the people of New Jersey need and deserve.”

    “I look forward to working with Mr. Schar as the committee ramps up its investigation into these concerns about public safety and abuse of power,” said Wisniewski (D-Middlesex). “Mr. Schar’s experience will help build upon the progress we’ve made and help ensure that, in the end, we get the answers we need to find out what truly happened here so that we can institute safeguards to prevent future abuses.”

    “I am pleased to have been chosen as special counsel to assist the Select Committee on Investigation in its ongoing work,” said Schar. “Jenner & Block understands the importance of this investigation, and we will work diligently to support the members of the investigative committee on this matter.”

    – – – –Dr. Roberta L. Coles is a white college professor and an unlikely advocate for black fathers.

    For the better past of a decade she has worked tirelessly collating a large body of research on an often-overlooked group — responsible African American dads, including black single custodial fathers.
    Her latest offering is a forthcoming book on social fathers: men who play an important or central role in raising a child.

    – –Unlike traditional definitions that focus on adoptive or stepfathers, Dr. Coles’ book, will include mentors which in the black community act as role models for kids growing up in female-headed households.
