African American Chamber of Commerce: ‘City of Milwaukee fails to protect Black business owner’

Staff Photo

African American Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Dr. Eve M. Hall convened a press conference on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 at City Hall alongside Milwaukee Branch NAACP President James Hall, Jr. to urge the City Clerk Jim Owczarski and Common Council President Willie Hines to “hold off on repealing Chapter 370 for purposes of researching minority participation programs and best practices around the U.S. – particularly the Midwest.” In a statement James Hall said, “The new ordinance makes no significant changes in the operation of the programs or in enforcement of program requirements.” In 2012, Chapter 370 ordinance went into effect to help African American contractors get more city business. These race-based requirements have done little to help contractors since being enacted.

The African American Chamber of Commerce (AACC) held a press conference on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 in the Milwaukee City Hall Rotunda. AACC is asking the Common Council to postpone action on a resolution repealing Chapter 370. The chamber is requesting that city officials do research on minority participation program best practices in other cities around the country and particularly in the Midwest. “It is of legal opinion that Ordinance 370 failed to address the sizable disparities that exist in our community, but abolishing the initiative altogether fails to move the City of Milwaukee in the right direction,” Board Chair Stephanie Findley said in a prepared statement issued by the AACC. The City of Milwaukee is over 40 percent African American; 17.3 percent Hispanic; 3.5 percent Asian; 0.8 percent Native American and approximately 3.5 per-

cent “other non-white” races and one of the most impoverished cities in America. It is unconscionable that the City believes it acceptable to return to a race neutral program. Eve Hall, President and CEO of the African-American Chamber said: “Chapter 370 assumes African Americans and other minorities are at parity with the general population as it relates to supplies of goods and services without any analysis of the Commercially Useful Function (CUF) of such firms. In the federal supply and contracting arena, this would fall under 49 CFR 26.55.” Ordinance 370 provided strong protections for the utilization of White women while forcing all women of color to share the limited protections provided by the ordinance with men of the same race – further diluting opportunities for men of color – particularly African American men.

Northwestern Mutual unveils design for downtown office tower

Northwestern Mutual CEO John Schlifske

Northwestern Mutual released on September 25, 2013 the first images of its planned 32-story downtown Milwaukee office tower, which is expected to cost $450 million. The 1.1-million-square-foot building will replace Northwestern Mutual's office at 800 E. Wisconsin Ave. on Milwaukee’s lakefront, which must be demolished due to structural problems. The new building will provide space for 1,100 employees who work at the existing office, plus another 1,900 employees who could be added by 2030. The unveiling was presided over by CEO John Schlifske who said, “This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to create greater efficiency and more employee collaboration, as well as additional energy and excitement for the community.”

Hundreds rally and march in support of restoring public education in Wisconsin By: Raina J. Johnson Special to The Milwaukee Times Since 2011 there’s been a great divide in our state: the spending cuts and privatization of public education. Tossed in the middle of this divide are thousands of students, parents, administrators and proponents of quality public education in Milwaukee. On Saturday, September 21, 2013, hundreds first

gathered at Milwaukee High School of the Arts at 2300 W. Highland Avenue to hear from an array of speakers, including Superintendent of Milwaukee Public Schools, Dr. Gregory Thornton and Superintendent of Shorewood School District, Martin Lexmond. The rally was emceed by Milwaukee-based artist, Kwabena Antoine Nixon, and co-founder of the “I Will NOT Die Young Campaign, Muhibb Dyer.

Participants then marched about three miles to Forest Home Avenue School, across the 16th Street Viaduct, also known as the Father James Groppi Unity Bridge. Residents that live near 16th Street heard the marchers; lead by musicians came out of their homes to show their support. Dr. Gregory Thornton said, “There’s a lot to be done and I believe we can do it. I believe Milwaukee

can turn the corner and be a great place for our children. This is not a black issue, this is not a white issue, and this is not a south side issue, this is not a north side issue, this isn’t even a Milwaukee issue, this is a national issue that has found its’ way into Wisconsin and made Milwaukee home.” (Continued on pg. 11)

By Frank James IV

What are your dreams?

When we are children we have dreams of all sizes. Many people have big dreams, others small ones. As people grow and start the adult part of life their dreams change. Some adopt people dreams and others give up their dreams. Everyone in the USA knows what Martin Luther King’s dream was but do they know their own? As a child we dream about everything. Some children dream about going to college or having a big car and fancy clothes. Other children dream about running a company or maybe the nation. The dreams many have as youngsters are building blocks for future goals. In some cases the dreams of youth set the foundation for reality of adulthood. What then happens when you no longer dream?

As adults many people have chosen to allow themselves to be forced into certain social statuses. As a result of this choice many people give up on their dreams. In most instances these people forget or give up dreaming and settle into their reality. If asked what their dreams are many of these people will laugh and say dreams are for children. But are dreams for children or everyone? Today’s society is very complex and harsh in many ways. Because of the harshness of many social aspects people drop their dreams and make do with whatever reality is open to them. There is nothing wrong with this because as they say, “You have to do what you have to do.” But what effect does giving up dreams have on an individual?

When a person has no dreams they seem to have no goals. Dreams are what make people set goals for themselves. Goals can vary and not everyone has the same goals or dreams. A person who has stopped dreaming has accepted their path and is simply living out the thread of life. Some will say this type of person has been beaten down by life. This isn’t true because the person chose to be where they are in life, is being what they make it. Many feel that at a certain age in life you stop dreaming and go with what reality or situation you’re in. But at what age do you feel the need to stop dreaming and setting goals? There are 60 plus aged people getting college degrees in America. This means that these people

never gave up on a dream they had decades before. Who can tell a person when they are too old to dream and what is the age limit? More importantly where and who created the age limit and by what criteria? As people mature and start recognizing their talents some dreams evaporate. When this happens other dreams utilizing their talents start to manifest. Dreams and goals change constantly while a person is a teen. Many people have identified their dreams and set up life goals during college. Other people go through life dreaming up new goal after goal until death. When was the last time you thought about your dreams? Have you achieved your dreams from childhood? Have you created new

dreams and set new goals since childhood? Have you accepted a role in life you didn’t want and gave up your dreams? There is nothing wrong with choosing to give up dreams. There is nothing wrong with continuing to dream. But what if the saying, “Life is a dream” is true? Then dreams are life and life is all we have.

‘Moral man and immoral society’ By Rev. Al Sharpton This past Sunday, I delivered a speech at an annual event held in honor of theologian Reinhold Niebuhr at Elmhurst College just outside of Chicago. It was in fact Niebuhr’s book, Moral Man and Immoral Society, that

I read as a youngster and that still resonates with me today when I reflect upon our remaining challenges as a nation. Before I spoke to those gathered at Elmhurst, my thoughts went immediately to that book and the immoral society created by policies enacted and upheld by some

in power today. After a week which began with 12 people killed at a Navy Yard shooting in Washington, and continued with 13 shot at a South Side park in Chicago, we still can’t get Congress to pass legislation on background checks. Some elected officials are so quick Rev. Al Sharpton to give tax breaks and subsidies to the rich, and then turn around and cut billions from the food stamp program. Neibuhr talked about an immoral society, and today’s right-wing likes to hold

itself to high and mighty standards, but doesn’t hesitate to stomp on the most vulnerable among us. Talk about a double standard. Personal responsibility. We see pundits, Party leaders and talking heads on the right continuously tout personal responsibility. But they conveniently forget that personal responsibility includes a duty to create communities and environments where everyone can feel secure and have a chance to excel. We’re living in an era where the rightwing installs personal morality, but institutionalizes (Continued on pg. 4)

What could be done to save lives? While significant details about the mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday, September 16, 2013, remain obscure, as with every such incident, the first question that people want answered is this: Could something have been done to save those innocent lives? Unfortunately, terrorism and similar acts of violence are bound only by the creativity of those responsible. The burden is always on those tasked with protecting us to prepare for such events. Some categories of attack are easier to prepare for than others. Major truck bombing incidents, for example, such as the bombing of the Marine Corps barracks in Beirut, Lebanon, in 1983 or the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in

1995, prompted significant changes in the security landscape. This was because a truck bomb could be whittled down into a distinct and useful set of parameters. How big would a truck likely be? How close would it have to be to the building to be dangerous? What sort of security measures would be most difficult to defeat for a determined driver? Similarly, the greater the number of people involved in a conspiracy, the more difficult it is to conceal. Once more than one person is involved, the chances of discovery go up exponentially. In the past few years, Americans have seen many potential terrorist plots foiled because of the work of undercover operations.

Discovering my true self in Africa

By Tony Farrell

Love at first sight After I had arrived late the night before and slept well, I prepared to leave in the early morning. I was going out into the rural African countryside – a.k.a. “The Bush” - for two days to visit a farming site near the city named Po. I had no idea what my needs were going to be, so I loaded up my backpack with just about everything I could stuff in it… just in case. Jonas, whom I had only previously had a brief Skype conversation with, picked me up in the Toyota Highlander I had tried to help get suspension parts for - the vehicle had taken the full beating of the poor roads and ended up barely operable. The road we traveled most our way out, however – a toll road – was very smooth and well paved. We headed south from Ouagadougou towards Ghana. Communication with Jonas was strained, though he spoke more English than most. I used smaller words and broke what I said up into small chunks, and that helped a great deal. Jonas, a relatively successful seed producer, told me his two main problems with farming were financing and getting reliable labor, and he mentioned that we may see elephants, but we also spent long periods of time in silence. Looking around, there it was in great glory and splendor. It was undeniably all around me, and I was totally immersed in it. It was simply wonderful to bask in the African countryside, untarnished and pristine. Out here the air was fresh and clean, enveloping round mud huts, earthen brick structures, wells dug out by hand, and the colossal baobob trees having lived through many generations with their massive trunks and deep, deep roots. Out here people and animals alike roamed freely about with no clear definitions as to whose land was whose and where people were and were not allowed to go. While each person or family did occupy a certain very small space of their own, most of the land was free and open for all to share. This reminded me of my numerous camping trips – my favorite pastime - as if

in rural Africa they just were camping year round, and much of the open land was being farmed. I absolutely loved the idea, and I began to think to myself, “I could totally see myself living here.” I felt like I had finally found home. When we arrived at Po and I began interacting with the people, I was very moved to discover that not only does rural Africa feel like home, but I already had family here – indeed, half way around the world - that I was about to meet for the first time. To be continued next week with “Meeting My African Family” Tony Farrell started his current business venture, Farrell Marketing Technology LLC, in April of 2011. Over his lengthy career as an information technology entrepreneur, he has worked on tens of thousands of computers and helped dozens of business to have smooth running, efficient computer infrastructure and great looking web sites that generate more business through search engine optimization. In February 2012, Tony began intensive organic farming on a small scale in his living room, including vermicomposting and aquaponics systems, and he completed Growing Power’s Commercial Urban Agriculture program in May 2012. Tony is currently enrolled in the Milwaukee-based Victory Garden Initiative’s Food Leader Certificate Program and Permaculture Design Certificate Program and is building a local for-profit microgreen production business called Farmer Tony’s Mission Greens. Tony recently returned from a three week agricultural mission trip to Burkina Faso, marking his first foray into international work. This series tells the story of that journey.

Rebuilding our Community By Dr. Andrew Calhoun, Ed.D. Special for the Milwaukee Times

Let’s get busy living “Tomorrow is not promised to anyone… you only have today.” This is what I was taught from my youth as a way to view life in general. However most of the time, we forget or take for granted what we have. Believe me… I have been around a while, traveled to a number of countries while in the Navy… and what some people complain about… is nothing. Just trade your place in America with someone else from another country and you will see. In many countries around the world it is pretty rough and I don’t think some of us would be able to survive or get accustomed to living without all of the modern conveniences. So much of what we are accustomed to, does not exist in other places around the world. The average American enjoys traveling on paved streets, drinking clean water, walking in the park, taking a shower, air conditioning, shopping in a grocery store, a visit to the mall, museum, a nice restaurant, and children attending a nice school, and in-house plumbing and… you get the picture. It is truly a stark contrast in lifestyles and cul-

Moral man (Continued from pg. 3) inequity. Instead of allowing kids to stay on their parent’s insurance, or give those with pre-existing conditions health care, they would rather shut government down. With all that is at stake, they choose to play games with the nation’s economy. Working mothers and fathers don’t have time to play games. The man or woman working two or three jobs just to feed their children does not have time for games. The veteran returning from combat and looking for work does not have time to play games. The child in desperate need of life-saving surgery does not have time for games. The person burying a loved one who died suddenly at the hands of gun violence doesn’t have time for games. And the middleclass and poor who were the biggest victims of the economic crisis of ‘08 definitely do not have time or patience for games. This is precisely what Niebhur talked about. Those that seek to be personally moral must also make sure that our government and institutions

tures. Of course that does not mean we live in a perfect country, far from it, and yes, we still have quite a few issues to work on. We can never turn our heads from the high level of gun violence, poverty, voter suppression, homelessness, joblessness, underemployment, abuse, war on drugs, greed and racism. What is truly amazing about people from around the globe is the fact that regardless of where you are from, we all share a common humanity and a desire to have a livable wage job, live in peace, and enjoy life, our families and friends. However, this is not the case and it seems that we are always chasing after what we desire and not taking the time

to enjoy what we have. For most people this is the greatest dilemma, to always want something that is out there and not really enjoying the present moments and to be thankful. Dr. Benjamin E. Mays, once the president of Morehouse College (194067), in Atlanta put it this way …. “It’s not what you keep, but what you give that makes you happy.” And so here we are, my suggestion is simple… let’s work together to overcome our differences and make our world a better place. Are you with me? Dr. Calhoun can be reached at andrewiiicalhoun@gmail.com, twitter: AC53, Facebook, 414571-5015

The Counseling Corner

By Rev. Judith T. Lester, B.Min. M.Th

September – National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month (Week 5) “All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah! Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us. We have plenty of hard times that come from following the Messiah, but no more so than the good times of his healing comfort—we get a full measure of that, too.” - 2 Corinthians 1:3-5 (The Message Bible) We live in a world of pain and suffering. Certainly at some point in life you have asked the question or heard others ask ‘why is there so much suffering in the world?’ This question is often considered when there is the presence of world crises, family

crises, a health crisis, etc. In fact, Lee Strobel, author of The Case for Faith (Zondervan, September 2000) asked George Barna of the Barna Group to conduct a national survey in which he asked a scientifically selected crosssection of adults: “If you could ask God only one question and you knew he would give you an answer, what would you ask?” The top response, offered by 17 percent, was “Why is there pain and suffering in the world?” This question has been on the minds of people for centuries. It has been argued by philosophers and great theologians and theorized by many skeptics. The bottom line is when people are suffering a health crisis or a family crisis; this is personal and an extremely emotional time; and not the time for an academic question or a theory. During times like

these, believers are called to seize the divinely ordained moment by using earthly pain to redirect the sufferer’s focus to eternal matters and providing love and comfort by gently speaking the gospel. 2 Corinthians 1:3-5 is a reminder God is the God of all comfort. The word “comfort” used here derives from the Greek word “paraklēsis.” It denotes empathy or en-

couragement. As Paul turns to the everyday problems of life, Paul emphasizes as God comforts us, He expects us to comfort others who may be in trouble or troubled. God’s comfort is to be transferable and intended to be shared. In other words, believers are called to be empathetic and loving as we point people to their only source of true comfort, Jesus Christ. When someone is overwhelmed and experiencing the pain of an illness, a recent diagnosis of cancer, a debilitating injury or some other illness; or someone is mourning the loss of a loved one, what better display of the love of Christ than when a believer comes alongside and offer prayer, support, comfort and the hope of the gospel? Beloved, even though we have come to the end of September and National Prostate Cancer Awareness

Month, let’s commit to bringing awareness to this serious issue the entire year. Once again, if you or someone you know have questions on prostate cancer, talk to your health care professional or call the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 or visit them at www.cancer.org.

Education

By Michael R. Lovell Chancellor, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

Creating connections for our students The other day I was writing a note that we’ll be mailing to students newly admitted for the fall 2014 semester. In it, I mentioned that Milwaukee County has nearly 60,000 companies. That means there are more than two companies for every one of our students – an excellent source of future internships and employment. Now, being realistic, I can tell you our university doesn’t have relationships with every one of those Milwaukee County companies. But we do have great numbers of student interns and alumni employees at many organizations throughout the area. More than once, I’ve spoken at a local company and

been told there are hundreds of UWM graduates among their employee ranks. Hearing that information is a great source of pride for our university, and at the same time the information reminds us of our great responsibility to educate future generations of people who will work throughout our community. While we are doing a great deal to connect our students to the area’s economy, we know we must continue to improve. More than 5,000 individuals are earning degrees from UWM every year, and we know we can’t stop supporting these students when they receive their diplomas. UWM has committed to being a part of the Global

Water Center on Milwaukee’s South Side because we know we’ll create and sustain connections to companies that are part of the growing freshwater sector of our Wisconsin economy. We strengthened our relationship with GE Healthcare by working with it to further support a first-of-its-kind talent pipeline for medical imaging software developers and researchers. We’ve also continued to build our partnership with Johnson Controls to enable breakthrough discoveries in the area of energy-storage devices and batteries. While partnerships with existing companies are important, we also know that many

students don’t necessarily want to be part of someone else’s company when they graduate and would prefer to work for themselves. That’s why we’ve focused on educating students on how to start their own companies with our Student Startup Challenge, uwmstartupchallenge.com/. The program begins with ideas and ends with companies. In early September, the second group of winning applications was announced and eight teams were chosen to receive funding. Over the course of this academic year, these students will further build their teams, take advantage of a network of business mentors who have

volunteered to support the students, develop working prototypes of their products or software and launch companies. It’s an exciting time at UWM because of all we’re doing to expand the traditional boundaries of higher education. Increasingly, this means strengthening relationships with existing companies and supporting the creation of new companies. This is all part of what it means to be Milwaukee’s largest university in the 21st century.

Bulletin Board Board directs administration to consult with legal counsel on potential sale or lease of Malcolm X building

The Milwaukee Board of School Directors directed the administration to consult with the District’s legal counsel regarding strategies related to the potential sale or lease of Milwaukee Public Schools’ former Malcolm X Academy site, 2760 N. 1st Street, Milwaukee 53212 at a meeting of the Milwaukee Board of School Directors Thursday, September 19, 2013. Milwaukee Public Schools remains committed to making decisions about buildings

that benefit all Milwaukee taxpayers. MPS has put facilities back into use to expand or replicate academically successful MPS-run schools and to provide space for successful independent charter schools through sales and leases. The district remains open to discussing options with other public and private organizations interested in space that has not been identified as needed for future growth of successful programs.

Salvation Army, WISN 12 and community partners’ efforts provide backpacks, supplies for more than 1,300 students

MPS Photo

Thanks to generous donations totaling more than $53,000, more than 1,300 students at Milwaukee Public Schools’ Auer Avenue, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Hi-Mount Community and Lancaster schools received backpacks with school supplies this week. The funds were raised by the Salvation Army through a WISN 12 on-air drive and collection drives hosted by WNOV 860 AM, Educators Credit Union, Community Financial Service Centers, Krispy Kreme, Professional Insurance Agents of Wisconsin and AAA of Wisconsin. MPS principals also donated to the effort. A backpack distribution celebration took place at Emerson on Friday, September 20, 2013, featuring representatives of the Salvation Army of Milwaukee County, WISN 12, WNOV, Educators Credit Union, Community Financial Service Centers, MPS — and former Green Bay Packer LeRoy Butler. Thank you to the Salvation Army, WISN 12 and all of the partners involved in this tremendous effort!

Talking Health with Dr. Carter

13

By Dr. Lester Carter Owner, Carter Drug Store

Seven paths to your ideal weight (part 5) Worldwide, obesity is on the rise. In the US, seven out of ten people are overweight or obese. According to an article in Obesity, Johns Hopkins researchers predict that by 2030 (one more generation), 86.6 percent of American adults will be overweight or obese. In other words, it is going to take a concerted effort from all concerned adults to transform this almost certain future. The responsibility falls especially hard on parents who need to ensure that their children grow up eating wholesome food and getting regular ex-

ercise. Flush your Fat Away! Fat Flush For Life, Ann Louise Gittleman, PhD, CNS. In the beginning, Dr. Gittleman left the Pritikin Organization and wrote Beyond Pritikin, in which she became the first advocate of eating the right fat to lose weight. With the terrific Fat Flush For Life (based on her New York Times best selling The Fat Flush Plan), Gittleman reaches a new zenith in coaching readers to a healthy, happy life. Gittleman has many years

of hands-on experience with 1000's of followers of her Fat Flush plan. In Fat Flush For Life, she brings classic health and nutrition lessons from the past and transforms them into the 21st century. She teaches the reader the right way to detox and integrates detox fasting into the

seasons. In each of the four seasons, a particular set of organs is appropriate for cleansing. Recipes are included, as is a "breakthrough" 5-Day Hot Metabolism Booster for maximum weight loss. The radiantly beautiful Gittleman (I've seen her in person) is a living example of walking the talk. Here are the six core Fat Flush commandments: 1. Love Your Liver 2. Love Your Lymph 3. Eat the Right Fat to Lose Weight 4. Stress Less and Sleep More

5. Lower Insulin to Lower Weight 6. Recognize False Fat (ie., bloating) Perhaps, the most surprising thing about the book is that - without featuring this aspect- Fat Flush For Life serves as a practical example of eating for your genes. "Superstar foods", good oils, reduced calories, and seasonal fasting seem especially relevant to this concept.

Flu season is around the corner get vaccinated to protect you and your loved ones from flu (part 2 of 2) Now that kids are back in school, we are reminded of many things typical of this time of year—parent-teacher meetings, sporting events and extracurricular activities. This time of year should also serve as an important reminder that flu season is just around the corner. By getting a flu vaccine for yourself and your entire family every year, you can help prevent flu-re-

lated illness, missed school, and missed work. A reminder for parents Many children need two doses of flu vaccine this season to be fully protected. Children 6 months through 8 years of age who are getting vaccinated for the first time will need two doses. Some children in this age group who have received a flu vaccine in prior seasons will also

need two doses. Your child’s health care provider can tell you whether two doses are recommended for your child. Vaccine options and safety There are several flu vaccine options for the 20132014 flu season. Flu vaccines made to protect against three different flu viruses (called “trivalent” vaccines) will be available this season, in addition to flu vaccines made to

protect against four different flu viruses (called “quadrivalent” vaccines). The trivalent flu vaccine will protect against two influenza A viruses and an influenza B virus. The following trivalent flu vaccines will be available: • A standard flu shot approved for people ages 6 months and older • A high-dose flu shot approved for people 65 and older and an intradermal flu shot approved for people 18 to 64 years of age. • A flu shot that is eggfree, approved for people 18 through 49 years of age. The quadrivalent flu vaccine will protect against two influenza A viruses and two influenza B viruses. The following quadrivalent flu vaccines will be available: • A standard flu shot approved for people ages 6 months and older • A standard dose quadrivalent flu vaccine, given as a nasal spray, approved for healthy* non-pregnant people 2 through 49 years of age *”Healthy” indicates persons who do not have an underlying medical condition that predisposes them to influenza complications. CDC does not recommend one flu vaccine over the other. The important thing

is to get a flu vaccine every year. Talk to your doctor or nurse about the best option for you. The flu vaccine is safe. People have been receiving flu vaccines for more than 50 years. Vaccine safety is closely monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Hundreds of millions of flu vaccines have been given safely to people across the country for decades. The flu vaccine cannot give you the flu. The most common side effects from a flu shot are soreness where the shot was given, maybe a low fever or achiness. The nasal spray flu vaccine might cause congestion, runny nose, sore throat, or cough. If you do experience them at all, these side effects are usually mild and short-lived. Where to get vaccinated Flu vaccine should be available widely, and in many convenient locations. See your doctor or nurse to get the flu vaccine, or seek out other locations where vaccine is being offered, such as pharmacies, health departments, grocery stores and many others.

Pregnant women encouraged to take part Vitamin B supplements may guard against stroke in programs to quit smoking It's no secret that breaking an addiction to nicotine is extremely difficult, even when there is a strong incentive to quit - such as during pregnancy or when there's a new baby in the house. Currently, at least 13 percent of women in Wisconsin smoke during pregnancy-that's higher than the national average of 9 percent. Smoking while pregnant can lead to a host of complications, such as miscarriage, stillbirth, premature birth, low birth-weight, birth defects and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). "Sadly, the addiction is so powerful and the stress on some women is so high, it can override even the strong desire pregnant women have to protect themselves and their babies. Fortunately, there are programs available to help women quit smoking while pregnant and stay smoke-free once the baby

The researchers found that folic acid, a supplemental form of folate (B9) that is common in fortified cereals, appeared to reduce the beneficial effect of vitamin B. They also found that vitamin B12 had no effect on stroke risk. “Based on our results, the ability of vitamin B to reduce stroke risk may be influenced by a number of other factors, such as the body’s absorption rate, the amount of folic acid or vitamin B12 concentration in the blood, and whether a person has kidney disease or high blood pressure,” review author Xu Yuming, of Zhengzhou University in China, said in a journal news release. “Before you begin taking any supplements, you should always talk to your doctor,” Yuming added.

A lack of support shown to our own There are almost 600,000 African Americans who reside in the city of Milwaukee. With that number of people, common sense suggests there should be more blackowned and operated business – especially food stores and restaurants. In Milwaukee, there are many neighborhoods that are considered food deserts. As defined by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the American Nutrition Association, food deserts are usually found in impoverished areas. This is largely due to a lack

of grocery stores, farmers markets, and healthy food providers. Consequently, these food deserts are often over-populated with stores that provide processed and high-sugar content items, in addition to startling unemployment and crime rates. Black owned and operated food stores are typically located within a one or two mile radius of each other. Competition for business is an issue for owners trying to support their families and not ‘sell out’ to a person of another race wanting to buy

their business. Black business owners try to hold on to their business as long as they can, but have to do so with a huge lack of majority AfricanAmerican support. Interestingly enough, when many black owned stores can no longer stand, they become owned by a person of another ethnicity. African American consumers run to those locations to spend money, without insisting the new owners earn the loyalty and supreme buying power of the African American dollar.

As a result, we continue to see the amount of food deserts grow with an increase in owners of ethnic groups and racial backgrounds different from our own, displacing or completely wiping out African American food stores and restaurants. It is shameful to see the vast number of stores in our neighborhoods owned by others. It is morally wrong when we adopt those principles, values and excuses to drive past black owned and operated stores on a daily, weekly or monthly basis,

without thinking twice, giving our dollar away to those who have little to no interest in supporting our communities or earning our dollar. We implore our readers to support our few remaining black owned and operated grocery stores and restaurants within the one or two mile radius from which they reside. Pictured below are several of the few remaining African American owned and operated grocery, convenience and food establishments in our community.
