This Will Not Be Another Greek Tragedy

  We know the faces of poverty. They are recognizable in every urban landscape throughout the United States. The human instinct is to experience an immediate rush of compassion, and if generosity prevails, to act. As a Greek-American, the images of the poor lining the streets of democracy’s birthplace in Athens...

The Latest in Tyga Vs. The World

  Now I know “Rack City” was a smash, I mean, with a bar like “Got your Grandma on my d***” how could it not get people talking. But BOY has Young Money’s, or should I say ex-Young Money star, Tyga been the topic of a lot of conversation these...

Digital Distraction: How We Lost Focus

  How do we lead healthy, productive lives in the 21st century? The answer to the proposed question is an enigma. Our days are spent ‘connected,’ a term Mark Zuckerberg coined and monopolized, and both our idle and occupied time is rife with distraction.   In the midst of reviewing...

It’s Really Love: Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj

  Last night, I mentioned how my favorite player (yeah, I said it) in the NBA, DeMarcus ‘Boogie’ Cousins might have something to look forward to with new Coach—George Karl running things in Sac-Town. Today, I switch over to someone who’s absolutely balling off the court…MMG’s fire-spitter, Meek Mill.  ...

Who was David Carr? Media Vanguard

  The only career protected by the Bill of Rights is journalism — its role in society cannot be underestimated. To have a learned, informed citizenry is the only way to achieve real democracy, and without newspapers, pundits, and today, even podcasts, our democracy would be stifled.   The variety of...

Boogie, Boogie, Boogie Can’t You See?

  Averaging 23.8 PPG, 12.5 RPG, 3.3 APG, 1.7 BPG, and 1.4 SPG, DeMarcus ‘Boogie’ Cousins is the face of the Sacramento Kings. One of the most passionate players in the game today, Boogie’s play has been overlooked by his emotions on the court and his woeful Kings’ record over...

Why We Celebrated Valentine’s Day

  The world is full of cynicism, and too many people carry out their lives skeptical of their surroundings, with their hearts and minds closed off their hearts to the unknown possibilities that beckon. With Cupid’s favorite holiday, cynics can discover the opportunity to shed skepticism and invite positivity.    Valentine’s Day...

The Bigger Picture Of The 2015 Grammys

  While the whole world (and by whole world I essentially am referring to the Twittersphere) was consumed by Kanye’s almost virtual reenactment of the stunt he pulled at the 2009 VMA’s, I ask that we look past that and recognize the powerful messages that were sent by artists Pharrell...

The Creator Of The Love and Hip Hop Edge

  The second I hear the term “guilty pleasure” my brain is wired in a way that is immediately triggered to think of Love & Hip Hop. ‘LHH’ is VH1’s reality soap opera (whatever that means) that involves struggling rappers, poor cinematography, and the exploiting of women, more specifically black women....

Public Health Of, For and By The People

  National campaigns against cigarette smoking have changed lives and likely saved thousands of more lives. New Yorkers are familiar with the subway ads that memorialize the countless young lives that have ended too soon as a result of the menacing addiction. We have witnessed a reduction in the number...
