Usher’s stepson: Brain death explained The very public declaration of Usher Raymond’s stepson as brain dead highlights a little understood concept: death is not just defined as the point at which a heart stops beating. Many media images perpetuate this misunderstanding. Often, they equate death with that characteristic “flat line” and the long, monotone beep that signals that the heart has stopped. Other images show people in comas or vegetative states, with doctors calling them “brain dead,” as the person looks to be sleeping peacefully, breathing on their own. There is also the miraculous recovery when a person wakes up from a coma after many years. Comas and vegetative states are different than brain death. For one, a brain dead person will never wake up. In the United States, brain death is one of the legal definitions of death. Brain death is when the brain irreversibly stops working. This is not limited to the inability to regain consciousness. It also refers to the parts of the brain that control breathing and essential bodily functions. These patients cannot breathe without a ventilator — a machine that helps support a person’s breathing or sometimes breathes for them through a tube placed into the lungs. The most common ways children become brain dead are traumatic injuries from accidents, brain tumors, or a prolonged lack of oxygen to the brain. Traumatic injuries can cause swelling of the brain, bleeding that pushes on vital brain structures, or a break in the electrical circuits of the brain. All of these events can cause irreversible damage. The brain can be deprived of oxygen in several circumstances, including severe infections, dangerously low blood pressure, or suffocation — such as in a drowning or critical asthma attacks. It also happens before the heart starts beating again in a person who needed CPR . According to reports, Usher’s stepson is currently brain dead after traumatic injuries following a jet ski accident. It’s unclear whether he ONLINE EDITION

is in this state from direct head trauma or other internal injuries that caused a decrease in oxygen to the brain. Some consider brain death a more difficult situation, because the person looks alive, kept that way by machines and tubes, but, technically, they are not. This is complicated among some religious groups who only accept death as the time when the heart and lungs have stopped working. Certain states, like New York for example, require special accommodations for those families. These religious beliefs, however, are handled differently than families who are just in denial. Occasionally, the decision is made for the family naturally. Damage to the brain can be so severe that the heart and lungs won’t work even with the machines and medications. Doctors determine brain death in children with at least two examinations, at least 12 hours apart. It is recommended that two different doctors perform the tests. They check for certain reflexes that the brain should have, including whether the person will have the reflex to breathe after being off of the ventilator. This evaluation is sometimes backed up with special brain scans to look for blood flow to the brain or tests that check for electrical activity in the brain. The family then has to choose between continuing care as is, stopping the machines and medications that are artificially keeping the person alive, or donating the person’s organs first. Some families have donated as many as 20 of their brain dead family member’s organs to others in need. In order to remove any question of conflict of interest, the doctor who harvests the transplant organs cannot be one of the doctors who declares the person brain dead. If the reports are correct about his condition, the 11-year-old will never regain consciousness. And, Usher’s ex-wife, Tameka Raymond, the child’s mother, will face difficult decisions on how to proceed.

Sneak peek: Spike Lee’s Michael Jackson ‘Bad’ documentary Legendary film director Spike Lee chronicles the King of Pop’s landmark Bad album in his latest documentary. Lee’s project takes an in-depth look into Michael Jackson’s acclaimed studio album from 1987. The documentary’s release is being coupled with 25th anniversary of the album that won Jackson two Grammy awards. The album featured hit songs like “Smooth Criminal”, “Dirty Diana”, “Man in the Mirror” and of course “Bad.” h t t p : / / w w w . y o u t u b e . c o m / w a t c h ? v=_jf_EhlOXKU&feature=player_embedded The documentary will also look into Jackson’s record-breaking world tour and features interviews with people like Sheryl Crow who he worked and sang alongside Jackson during the late 80s. Lee says, “I’m more than just a huge fan of Michael Jackson, and having the chance to actually know him and work with him, I deeply care about his legacy. With this Bad project I was able to uncover just what made this such a huge, important coming of age in his career and unearth compelling stories surrounding the making of the album, the long awaited follow-up to Thriller — the best selling album of all time — the short films and the tour that may have never seen the light of day.” ONLINE EDITION

ASHA CRITIC AT LARGE

Black Excellence: The Network Journal Celebrates 40 Black Innovators Under 40 – See Who Made the List July 12, 2012 by Britni Danielle Amid the reality shows, celebs behaving badly, and the negative news stories, we rarely hear about the positive things black folks are doing each and every day. Thankfully, we aren’t buying into the hype, and some, like CLUTCH, love shining a light on the members of our community who are excelling in their fields. This year, The Network Journal rolled out its annual list of 40 brilliant black innovators in business, politics, and academia. This year’s list includes honorees from companies like L’Oréal (Aida Moudachirou- Rebois), Bloomingdale’s (Nicole Cokley), General Motors (Brooke Ellis), NBC Universal (Sharita Brantley), and the 135th Street Agency (Shante Bacon), as well as those from academia and the non-profit sector, like Dr. Janna Andrews, assistant ONLINE EDITION

clinical professor of radiation oncology at the SUNY Stony Brook Winthrop University Hospital. The 2012 class of ‘40 Under 40’ awardees were celebrated at the The Network Journal’s 15th Annual ‘40 Under 40’ Awards Dinner at the Crowne Plaza in Times Square Wednesday evening in New York City. Talk about black excellence! With so many negatives images of black men and women circling in the media, events such as this are not only valuable, but necessary. We can’t rely on others to share stories of our brilliance; it’s become clear we have to do it ourselves.

From Lauryn Hill to Wesley Snipes: Why do black celebs have trouble paying their taxes? From 2005 to 2007, while still relatively hidden from public view, singer Lauryn Hill made over $1.5 million. However she paid no taxes on that income, a charge to which she plead guilty this past week in a New Jersey courthouse. While a statement released from Hill’s camp made it clear that the star intends to pay the taxes in a timely manner, Hill joins an infamous club: black celebrities who don’t pay their taxes. theGrio slideshow: Mo’ money, mo problems — black celebrity tax cheats Hill’s defense for not paying taxes is honest, though also a bit dubious: according to a post on her personal Tumblr blog, she needed to withdraw herself from the “climate of hostility, false entitlement, manipulation, racial prejudice, sexism and ageism” that is pop culture. “I conveyed all of this when questioned as to why I did not file taxes during this time period,” Hill goes on to explain. ”Obviously, the danger I faced was not accepted as reasonable grounds for deferring my tax payments, as authorities, who despite being told all of this, still chose to pursue action against me, as opposed to finding an alternative solution.” Lauryn Hill should absolutely do what she needs to protect her family, but not paying taxes? Perhaps she was so consumed by the false entitlement of celebrity that she believed she could get out of the responsibility every other adult American has to shoulder. Even despite her effort to withdraw from society, Hill’s celebrity automatically drew attention of the federal government — they were ONLINE EDITION

bound to come for their money at some point. The Internal Revenue Service has made it clear that the wealthy receive greater tax scrutiny, and making examples of celebrities is practically a hobby: it reminds the rest of us of the penalties of not paying your taxes. Unfortunately (and perhaps to a conspiracy theorist, by no coincidence at all) black celebrities comprise some of the most frequent examples of tax evasion. Former A-list superstar Wesley Snipes is currently holed up in a Pennsylvania federal prison for failing to pay nearly $17 million in taxes. Ron Isley finished a 3 year sentence in 2010 for tax evasion. Lil’ Kim is said to owe over $1 million to the IRS. Singer Kelis owes over $300,000 in taxes. Younger celebrities aren’t immune to the issue either — Rev Run’s daughters Angela and Vanessa Simmons reportedly owe the government nearly $450,000. Unlike Lauryn Hill’s elaborate explanation, most celebrities don’t pay taxes because they simply don’t plan to. Unlike us salaried people, celebrity payouts arrive in lump sum checks without taxes deducted. Saving 30 percent from that money for the eventual tax bill that will arrive in April would seem like logical financial planning, but naturally the lure of big ticket purchases is often too tempting to resist. Another issue is poor management — celebrities trusting others to stay on top of their finances instead of keeping track of it themselves. This is a common issue that continues to spring up despite the numerous cautionary tales warning against shady money managers. As the saying goes, good help is hard to find. Black celebrities seem to be disproportionally affected by tax drama, a byproduct of black people simply lacking financial understanding in general. Unfortunately, financial savvy is a skill that we continue to struggle with, often tempted by lifestyle purchases instead of lifestyle savings plans.

Veteran Educator Proposes a Way for Creating Smart Schools New book offers a process for the creation of smart or effective schools through the development and implementation of the Educational Instructional Coaching Model WESTBURY, N.Y. – According to John Dewey, education is not a preparation for life, but is life itself. As a veteran educator committed to public education, Dr. Judith Kronin pens Creating Smart Schools, a book that proposes a model that makes it possible for every student to attain a quality education. Ron Edmonds spoke in an uncompromising voice, “All children can learn.” Today, Kronin speaks with the same resounding spirit and says, “All educators can teach.” Creating Smart Schools is a book that offers a process for the creation of effective schools through the development and implementation of the Educational Instructional Coaching Model. This model, (EICM), will enable American students to earn top scores on the Programme for International Students Assessment (PISA). EICM evolved from research and a set of core beliefs, which include the following: The major goal of educators is to inspire students to become critical thinkers and independent learners. Educators must create environments of small learning communities where a major portion of instruction is devoted to problem solving. Educators must create lesson plans that inspire students to increase their enjoyment of good questions and help them work out their own understanding of “static” knowledge like mathematics, science, and reading. ONLINE EDITION

Teachers must design student-directed instructions. Educational reform is comprehensive and involves every member of the educational community. Instructional coaching, which requires mutual respect between a coach and teacher, is the cornerstone for improving classroom instruction. Made available through Xlibris, Creating Smart Schools is the guidebook to what every school needs for every student to attain quality education. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to www.Xlibris.com.

eBay Store Closed

As Publisher of the Community Journal I highly recommend reading this book, especially if you have children living in Nassau County...

ONLINE EDITION

My eBay store, The Quality Corner 1, is now closed. After much deliberation, I decided to close it last month. It was not an easy decision, but it is the best course right now. I opened the store back in 2008 and it was my pride and joy. I worked very hard to grow my eBay business. In 2009, I expanded to selling books and audiobooks worldwide. In 2010, I became a Power Seller and an eBay Top Rated Seller. I felt good about my accomplishments at that time. In 2011, eBay made several changes to the fee structure and seller requirements. During the entire time I've sold on eBay, they have continued to make policy changes. However, the most recent changes caused me to reconsider my eBay business. I decided to keep the store open through the busiest season of the year. After a slow holiday season, I became discouraged. After reviewing my profits, I made the final decision to close the store in February. As the saying goes, "if it doesn't make dollars, it doesn't make sense." Even though my eBay store is closed, The Quality Corner is still open. I maintain my relationship with a very large book distributor, therefore, I still have access to over 2 million titles in print and audio. I will continue to take special requests and ship books directly to my customers. I have several local customers, including the Columbus City School district. I am very thankful for my loyal customers and I look forward to continually providing quality products and quality service in the future. The online segment of my business is continuing to grow. I am now selling ebooks, music and entertainment on my blog. You can view my selection here. Also, I am an affiliate for Barnes & Noble, so I will be promoting their products and passing on savings to my readers. You can read more about that here. I intend to focus more on my book review service as well. To learn more about book promotion through reviews, trailers and press releases, view my website at www.blackbookreview.com.

Kenyan model Ajuma Nasenyana fights skin lightening and European standards of beauty From Clutch Magazine – Like many other parts of the world, Africa is no stranger to European standards of beauty. The practice of skin lightening is becoming rampant in many African countries as some folks go to drastic lengths to shed their dark complexions for lighter, “more acceptable” ones. And from advertising and magazines, to TV and film, the black aesthetics are being pushed out, while European standards of beauty — blonde hair, blue eyes — are becoming more mainstream. “It seems that the world is conspiring in preaching that there is something wrong with Kenyan ladies’ kinky hair and dark skin,” Kenyan model Ajuma Nasenyana told the Daily Nation. Nasenyana wonders why European skincare companies that push lightening creams are entering Kenya marketing the European standard of beauty. “Their leaflets are all about skin lightening, and they seem to be doing good business in Kenya. It just shocks me. It’s not OK for a Caucasian to tell us to lighten our skin,” she said. Despite her beauty and that of women like her, Nasenyana is dismayed that while she is heralded abroad for her dark skin, at home she is seen as less than ideal. “I have never attempted to change my skin. I am natural. People in Europe and America love my dark skin. But here in Kenya, in my home country, some consider it not attractive,” she lamented.

Page 25

some have for their own skin, Nasenyana takes every opportunity she has to speak out against skin lightening and discrimination in the modeling world. She is also very critical of the Western media’s influence over Kenyans and concedes they are constantly being bombarded by magazines and advertisements that praise lighter skin. “When you flip through fashion magazines like Vogue and only see white models, then you get the feeling on what is happening to black models. It is not fair,” she explained. But Nasenyana, who has modeled for everyone from Victoria Secret to Carlos Mienes, isn’t just speaking out. The reining South African Fashion Week Model of the Year is also thinking of launching a line of cosmetics and natural skincare products for black women. Her hopes? That her products can inspire her peers to love their skin instead of bleach it. Let’s hope it works.
