Fat Tuesday Allows Rebirth

UNITED STATES—Fat Tuesday or what many people call Mardi Gras transpired on Tuesday, March 5. For many it’s about celebrating, especially in the Big Easy in New Orleans. When I think of Fat Tuesday, I think about gluttony and the notion of eating all the bad things before going through a cleanse of the body. This is also known...

Healthy Lifestyle Reboot

UNITED STATES—The New Year seems like ions ago, but it only has been 2 months to be exact. Like you, my resolutions that started off the New Year are done and over. I went pretty strong for about a month and then everything started to fall apart. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to stay committed; it’s the fact that...

The Gucci Debacle

UNITED STATES—I wanted to marinate a bit on this issue before bringing it to the public forum because it’s much bigger than a designer name. I’m referring to the issue involving Gucci, and that sweater which many considered to be racist as it resembled blackface. Yes, I’ve seen the sweater and how it slipped the cracks, I have no...

Money Management Matters

UNITED STATES—You have it one minute, it’s gone the next second. I’m talking about money. Americans want it, some of us have it, some of us have a lot of it and some of us don’t have much of it at all. It is indeed a conundrum to say the least. I used to toss around the word budget...

The Problem With Award Shows

UNITED STATES—Awards season is slowly coming to an end, and I must say I’m happy. It can be exhausting for those of us who cover these ceremonies. You have to be dedicated anywhere from 2-4 hours (looking at you Grammys) to watch a show, that for the first 30 minutes is fun, but the remainder of the ceremony is...

Oscar Outrage

UNITED STATES—Hearing that the Academy Awards would not have a host for the 2019 ceremony did not stun me to say the least. However, after news broke this week about the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences broadcasting awards for 4 categories: film editing, cinematography, makeup and hairstyling and live-action short via commercials are was speechless. The notion...

Women In San Francisco Send A Strong Message To Trump

SAN FRANCISCO—San Francisco has once again shown that it is the libertarian capital of the world. In the third annual Women’s March that took place in San Francisco this January, women from all over the country sent a strong message to all people in government who remain a treat to libertarian values. The women who were part of the march...

Was Super Bowl LIII The Worst Ever?

UNITED STATES—Wow, I cannot recall a Super Bowl that was this boring, this slow, and this terrible ever. Super Bowl LIII saw the New England Patriots win yet again this time over the Los Angeles Rams. This cements Tom Brady for many as the greatest NFL player and quarterback with 6 wins. Yes, the guy has more rings than...

Pure Frustration

UNITED STATES—I know I’m not the only person who has experienced this, where you have a day or a week that you are absolutely frustrated to the core. Now, let me be crystal clear: I said frustrated, not anger. Anger and frustration are two different things. Anger is an inability to control how you feel; there is a level...

Are You Prepared For Retirement?

UNITED STATES—This weekend I was forced to have a tough conversation with myself. I’m in my 30s and it came to a realization that I’m not preparing for the future. I mean my parents are near the verge of retirement and I have members in my family who have reached retirement age, and it lead me to question if...
