The Cost Of Food

UNITED STATES—I have a bone to pick with the consumer industry: why is the price of food so high? Yes, buying groceries is no game. It’s pricey and it appears every single week prices are constantly on the rise. The one thing about food is that we all need it to survive. But what can we actually do to...

Have A Slice Of Humble Pie?

UNITED STATES—What is it about being humble that so many people fail to grasp? I honestly have the slightest clue, but I suspect it comes with people living a life where they feel entitled. This is not to say all those who are born into wealth aren’t humble individuals, as that’s not the case. But I’m seeing more and...

How Bad Is Sugar?

UNITED STATES—When it comes to food, we all have weaknesses, perhaps the biggest weakness that most of us face is staying away from sugar. We’ve always been told that fat is bad, but what about sugar?  There is this big myth that fat is the bad guy, but in truth it’s actually sugar that is doing more harm to...

How Evil Is Money?

UNITED STATES—Money, what is it about this small, green, paper thin item that tends to bring out the worst in most of us? Why is money considered the root of all evil? It’s not easy to address this question, without examining all the complexities of what money can do. First and foremost, it’s a tradable commodity. With money you are...

The Nigerian Crisis: What Can We Do?

UNITED STATES—I must say, the crisis in Nigeria has been on my mind for the past few weeks after hearing about the capture of more than 200 Nigerian girls.  The kidnapping of the girls at the hands of leader Boko Haram has shaken the world to its core, but why has it taken us so long to take action? I...

Unapologetic Sentiment

UNITED STATES—Why is it when a big-time celebrity makes idiotic statements their attempts to come across apologetic ends up being much worse than they ever expected? Who knows, but I have a feeling everyone knows who I’m referring to, yep, Donald Sterling. He did a sit down interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper and it was absolutely atrocious to watch. This...

Social Awareness 101

UNITED STATES—I saw something interesting on television this morning and it got me thinking. Hmm, the media is much more intrusive than many of us would like to acknowledge. Why does it seem once something hits the Internet, it travels across the media like a massive outbreak that can’t be controlled? The scary factor isn’t that it breaks so...

Where’s My Device?

UNITED STATES—I had an epiphany this weekend; a moment where denial had finally suck into my tiny little brain. I’m obsessed with my cell phone. This was not always the case, for years I went without a cell phone. Yep, people thought I was crazy for not giving into public demand. I recently updated my cell phone from a...

Scandal In The NBA

UNITED STATES—Wow, what a weekend in the NBA! With playoffs in action, no one could have expected the news that has literally rippled across America. Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has allegedly been caught on tape making racist comments. Listening to the audio obtained by TMZ made me sick to my stomach, not to mention the fact that it...

Affirmative Action: Yay or Nay?

UNITED STATES—This is a debate that has been spewing for years and it looks like things are about to get even more heated. The United States Supreme Court recently upheld a ban based on affirmative action policies in the state of Michigan that may have ripple effects across the country. For those not in the know, affirmative action is policy...
