Business

From Morehouse to Creating Condoms? “ b condoms” created

by Morehouse alum Johnson and Panda. A plush prophylactic .There company motto: "b cool, b safe, b yourself." Distributed by PBJ Group LLC, investing $50,000 of their own money, even traveling to Morehouse College grads Jason Panda, Malaysia to insure production Esq and Ashanti Johnson created upscale quality. The FDA-approved con- condoms called " b condoms” dom brand has taken off, and, in order to sustain the budding business, Johnson resigned from his sales and marketing position at Johnson & Johnson, with Panda soon following suit, resigning from his job as a corporate attorney.

Black-owned firms grew faster - In both in number and sales -- than U.S. firms did as a whole over a five-year period, according to the latest data available from the Census Bureau. Black-owned businesses increased 60% between 2002 and 2007, more than three times the growth seen among all firms, according to the Census Bureau's business owners survey. Meanwhile, sales jumped 55% for black-owned business, vs. 34% for all businesses. We only make up 7% of U.S. businesses. Yet African-Americans comprise about 13% of the population. New York had the highest number of blackowned businesses (204,032), followed by Georgia (183,874) and Florida (181,437). Georgia also saw fast growth in black-owned firms, jumping 103% in five years. What does all that data mean? Start the business you have always wanted to. We have to keep this momentum going if we want to even the scale in the next 5 years. If you and 2 people you know open a Nashville business and 2 of there friends do the same in the next 3 years we could really have a 60% market presence. So get your money together and start brainstorming tonight.


Politics

Washington (CNN) -- Republican Rep. Christopher Lee of New York resigned his House seat Wednesday after a report that the married congressman had tried to meet a woman on Craigslist. The Donald is running for president ! The real estate mogul will make a final decision until summer. "We're a laughingstock throughout the world. We're not respected” I think Obama has one more in him, and besides it will give Trumph to get his hair together. We still cant figure out how he does that comb over slash wrap.. LOL

Uncle Luke aka Luther Campbell of 2 Live Crew fame announced today that he will throw his hat into the ring for mayor of Miami. Vowing to fix Liberty City by revamping the airport , hospital and affordable housing. “I go to a city like Atlanta that has sensible affordable housing, and no one is being murdered. I go to Miami International Airport and see the same construction that has been going on for like a hundred years. All of that frustrates the hell out of me”. It’s time for a change, so go ahead.. We need more black men in political office that want to fix the issue directly affection our race.

Relationships

RELATIONSHIPS By: Giavonni Green

Where is the love? Who kicked chivalry’s ass ? Ladies, doesn't it seem like we have switched roles with the men. The no longer wanting to cater to us, open doors or anything that has to do with being a gentleman. I think Usher messed us up with that damn song “Changing Places.” Listen to the radio every song you hear is about 5 star chicks and independent women. Drake even has the nerve to blatantly say “ Shout out to the home owners, with enough money to loan us” WTF. I think they are setting us up. What happened to the Dru Hills, Jagged edges and the 112’s of the music industry. Very few songs talk about taking care of there woman. How did it get this bad? We cook, clean, get an education, take care of our man and kids. Comb there hair, go to PTA meetings, track meets, football practice, help with homework and even bake cupcakes. On top of all

that still pay half if not more of the bills. All he has to do is pay his half and take out the trash and they forget THAT most of the time. What the hell is going on ladies? We have a few suggestions on how to correct this situation. Ladies you must stick to it if you want romance in your current and future relationships. 1. No sex for 90 days, get to know that person, blood type, allergies ect. Were all horny but to trade sexual frustration for romance is an absolutely out. Now if you are in a relationship Hit the reset button. 2. Do not reward bad behavior. If he acts like a jerk not only tell him but treat him accordantly and let him know right then and there that behavior will not be tolerated. 3. Tell him your expectations. You both need to be on the same page when it comes to your relationship, sex and personal . 4. Start claiming broke, lol let him pay, at least you will have your coins if it goes south. Get a

copy of the Pink Book by Giavonni Green, full of advice and instructions from the bed room to the board room. Now if you find out that your man is a looser, its still your fault. Why keep settling just to have a warm body that conducts is actions with you in a cold manner? If he is an idiot, you know it. You’ve told your friends how bad he is. The only problem is, you keep dealing with his ass, making YOU look like the a$$. You have ran his name and actions through the mud and you wonder why your friends don't like him. IT’S YOUR FAULT. Let him go and quickly while you still have your dignity. Ladies we have to flip the script, right now there in total bliss with no pressure to perform. A man will only do what you allow . Get house in order. **** Disclaimer : this article is not for the low self esteemed, weak, faint hearted females that allow foolishness for absolutely no rhyme or reason.

Q: Why is my pee dark after running? A: sounds like your dehydrated. When you sweat your body concentrates the urine absorbing as much usable water as possible. Making your urine more potent. * Drink water before , during and after to combat this problem. Q: Is there something I can eat to make me taste amazing down there? A: Meat, dairy, fish, spices and caffeine make your fluids taste stronger, for a lighter taste take a hit from vegetarians, Fruits like pineapple and veggies like celery offer a milder taste. As usual, plenty of water will help wash out any culprits. Q: Is semen fattening? A: The average ejaculation is about a teaspoon. Containing sperm, sugar and proteins, and only 7 calories . You’ll probably burn those off in the act. * Be safe, use condoms.

What we ordered: Center Cut Sirloin Steak & Shrimp. Grilled with classic Montreal Seasoning. (14.99) & Chicken Alfredo, grilled chicken with garlic parmesan and cream sauce over linguini ($12.99)

Center Cut Sirloin

My Experience: Upon arrival, the restaurant was clean and I mean really clean. No fingerprints on doors no dirt in the corners clean. The wait staff was awesome. I can’t remember her name but she is also a hairdresser on the side. I asked to see the kitchen to insure it was clean and it was. The chief was notified of my pickiness and prepared our meals himself. Headed to the restroom to freshen up before the food arrived was another surprise. There was not one thing on the floor. The toilet, skin doors even the walls were spotless. Not a single drop of water residue. I don't mean to go on and on about the cleanliness of this place but it was impeccable. Our food came moments later. The food was AWESOME. There was not one thing wrong. The taste and the presentation was on point. You have to try these two

Mind

HAVE YOU EVER CONSIDERED STRIPPING? Before we go any further, it is not what you think, this art of stripping references the removal of overcharging endured by your Temple. Have you listened lately to the flower that is Erykah Badu’s song “Bag Lady”? This song is a call to all women to stop carrying that steamer trunk filled with garbage around on your back and to downsize to more workably-sized cute bag, such as an over the shoulder pouch. In my journeying, I discovered the remedy to recovery from pain hoarding is annual stripping.

My awakening occurred at age 30, when I suffered the loss of one of my most prized possessions – my womb. In an attempt to hold onto my womb at all costs, it began to cost me my overall health. I was angry and thought that if I had taken better care of her, perhaps she would not have forsaken me. But in retrospect, I know it was I that did the forsaking. My precipitating factors were stress, early life unsafe sexual practices, and environment (hair care products, toxic foods/diet, etc.). It was an absolute necessity that I change my lifestyle! Thirteen years ago, I began a ritual of spending the last 45 days of each year “stripping”. I undergo a detoxification by ridding myself of the negative energy, people and adversities faced throughout the year. Through trial and error, I figured out the best methods for me including: 13 years ago I swore off red meat (presently no meat in past 2 years), increased fruits, veggies, water, exercise, and stopped tolerating dumb crap from others. I also added deeper prayer, meditation, a monthly fast and regular solitude. Since the weather is cold during the last 45 days of the year, I hibernate as much as possible to make complete peace with myself. Due to seasonal festivities, if I must be social, I only surround myself with those most important to me. Of course, naturally there will be some stress in life, consciously I no longer hold on to it. My live with a clear mind, my breathes are more pure, and my health is closely superior. Since I have never had a huge collection of “friends”, my investments in my few relationships with all others are treated valuably and held even closer to my heart; and I rarely recycle associates/haven’t known you long enough to consider a friend. Early on in this life ritual I discovered an extremely important fact – we hold on far too long. When a thing has long worn out its welcome, we still desire to hold & hug it and live with it. Why? There is no written law, nor moral standard which requires us to hold on to all the garbage we have experienced from birth until death, much less than from January thru December. Consider a little stripping for yourself and be sure and tell your Temple that sisters Erykah Badu and Irisi

The land owners that the hotel sits on 315 Union Street Holdings, LLC, et Plaza Operations, LLC has also filed for Chapter 11, according to court records. Both companies were into a heavy spat BB&T getting slapped with an $18 million dollar lawsuit. When speaking with Mark Lineberry, part owner, said “At this point the expectation is we reorganize and the public won’t know the difference,” With Chapter 11 protection, companies can reorganize and continue doing business or sell instead of simple liquidation. Hoping to get some help from a North Carolina based bank to extend the existing loan. According to court filings 315 Union has defaulted on more than $17.9 million. Holding $3.2 million in assets and $25.5 million in liabilities. While Union Street $1 million in assets and $17.7 million in liabilities, according to its filing. . Famous Recipe Company Operations LLC, doing business as Mrs. Winner's, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Listing 5 locations in middle Tennessee . Owing more than $1.3 to Georgia Department of Revenue in sales tax not to include the $2.1 million in payroll tax owed to “Big Daddy” A.K.A. the IRS. Hold up….

Other creditors include Vanguard Bank & Trust of Fort Walton Beach, Fla., owed nearly $5.4 million as guarantors, and Coastal Bank & Trust in Fort Walton Beach, owed $2.2 million as guarantor of loan, the filing said.Mrs. Winner's started taking a pocket hits over 3 years ago, according to the court documents.

Black Women Dying of a Preventable Disease? Research has confirmed that cervical cancer is caused by 2 specific strains of the sexually transmitted Human Papillomavirus (HPV). HPV is a STV . You can get HPV by simply being sexually active, other factors that increase risks are smoking, diet, age and HIV. HPV can be detected using the PAP test decreasing cervical cancer by 75%. 4,000 women in the US , more than 60% will be black women. Poverty Healthcare isn’t free. Unless you have a job that provides , many women find themselves SOL. Healthcare is a luxury that we can’t afford. Even if you are on welfare the health care is limited. 2. Lack of Education Most women, black women as well as other minorities are unaware that it will kill you. Many women don’t know about cervical cancer; let alone how to prevent it. 3. Cultural Attitude In our culture , we don't trust doctors. It’s a generational curse that has been passed down due to the racism and sexism in the medical community. Making us less likely to seek medical care, regardless of the painful symptoms. It is ultimately it is up to us to care for our selves and our sisters. We must take the time to educate ourselves and find the best healthcare resources we possibly can. And when we do, we must make sure that we do what we can to educate our sisters and help them do the same. What do you do if you have it? Beef up your immune system, lots of silver gel, natural remedies and no unprotected sex. More than likely it will go away. BUT, Getting checked to know which strain you have is key to you getting better. In the words of my favorite auntie “ Handel Yourself With Care” You have to, don't risk your life for nothing and no one. Unprotected Sex is a huge no no. I don't care how long you have been dating . Before you even begin a sexual relationship, both of you need to have your papers in hand . This is no joke. You can’t look at someone and tell if they have HPV, AIDS or any other STD. Be careful and Be Safe.

Hair

Look of the Month Mane pro Giavonni Green of Doll House Salon , Nashville takes us through the styling process of crafting this twisted updo.

Step 1 An auburn-golden permanent color is applied from roots to ends of the Natural hair and set under the dryer for 30 minutes before hair is rinsed with a moisturizing shampoo. “Then wrap the hair in perm rods and set under the dryer for about an hour,” Singleton says Step 2 Three strands of hair from the back of the head are braided together, in an overhand braid, and the same is done in front—creating two large braided sections. Bobby pins and hairpins are used to secure the braid up the back of the head. Step 3 For the shortest sections, wrap a covered black elastic band around the base to hold the knot in place and finish with a light shine spray. “I also apply curl crème to loose sections to create the spiraling pin curls falling around the face,” notes the pro. Step 4 Some of the pin curls are twisted up to create a spiraling bun. “I use the braid as a foundation for the bun so that the look won’t fall,” says Singleton. At-home care includes applying oil sheen daily and wrapping the hair up tightly at night.

Keep your undertones in mind while selecting the right eye shadow for yourself. For warm complexions, African American eye makeup that ranges between orange and honey, to rust and cinnamon will be the most flattering. For cooler complexions, shades of blue, purple, and pink are excellent for African American eye makeup. When it comes to eyeliner, the best colors to accentuate your African American eye makeup are browns and brown-black mascara. Metallic colors such as those offered by Bare Minerals will give a glamorous shine to your eyes. Use makeup designed for African American skin to get the best results. Search large cosmetic stores such as Sephora and Macys for makeup lines dedicated to women of color. However, don’t disregard some brands, such asMolten Brown, which cater to all skin types. Always wear eye makeup that you like. Wearing eye shadow or liner just because everyone else likes it won’t do, especially since makeup should satisfy you and not the world. *ARE YOU A MAKEUP ARTIST SUBMIT YOUR STEP BY STEP PHOTOS TO BE FEATURED IN THE GLITTERATTI GLITTERATTIMAG@GMAIL.COM

Freeway Ricky Ross is planning on suing rapper Rick Ross (real name: William Leonard Roberts II) over usage of the name “Rick Ross.” Since being released from federal prison on parole in 2009 after serving 20 years.

Second, he can call his self what ever he wants; Its not like he is the only Rick Ross in the world. Your out, no one owes you anything but a job application.

SEOUL (AFP) – Almost 30 robots have started teaching English to youngsters in a South Korean city, education officials said Tuesday, in a pilot project designed to nurture the nascent robot industry. Engkey, a white, egg-shaped robot developed by the Korea Institute of Science of Technology (KIST), began taking classes Monday at 21 elementary schools in the southeastern city of Daegu.The 29 robots, about one meter (3.3 feet) high with a TV display panel for a face, wheeled around the classroom while speaking to the students, reading books to them and dancing to music by moving their head and arms. The robots, which display an avatar face of a Caucasian woman, are controlled remotely by teachers of English in the Philippines — who can see and hear the children via a remote control system.
