THE WORLD (Naked Departure) — MALIA OBAMA — How is this at all possible? According to some accounting principals that are yet to be taught to ordinary folks, Malia Obama is listed as a heavy hitter and has managed to accumulate

$275,000,000 in her short time here in Hell. Has she even ever really held a job? Seems like stock options, restaurants, clothing line, and Cover Girl endorsements (to name a few) have made Malia one of the richest MALIA, See page 12A

“Think twice before bringing discrimination cases.” Even when there is blatant discrimination.

Sen. Jeff Sessions

By Michelle Boncardo (WASHINGTON) -President Obama’s Justice Department has been unabashed in its use of federal resources to sue state and local governments over alleged discrimination, even hosting press conferences to announce lawsuits against the city of Ferguson, Missouri, for racially-motivated policing practices and against North Carolina for its so-called “bathroom bill” targeting transgender individuals. But Donald Trump’s nominee to become the next attorney general, Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Alabama, may

think twice before bringing such cases. In the past, he has urged caution in how the Justice Department brings “its tremendous resources to bear” in court. “It is a power that ought not to be abused,” Sessions warned a top Justice Department official in 2002. “Just because someone says it’s [a matter of] civil rights, maybe they haven’t done their homework. Maybe they haven’t studied the facts or researched the laws quite enough.” During a Senate hearing reviewing the department’s Civil Rights Division, Sessions SESSIONS, See page 12A

Ventura, CA -- On Saturday, November 19, the 20th Century Onyx Club Debutantes made baskets for the needy, at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center. The 20th Century Onyx Club sponsors an annual debutante ball, a cotillion at which young ladies of African American heritage are formally presented to society. This year the event will be held on February 25, 2017, at Embassy Suites in Oxnard. The day started with the young ladies gathering items to fill four baskets

full of holiday cheer. Once the debutantes had collected all the items needed, they came to the Oxnard Performing Arts Center to package them in a decorative manner. What they did not expect was the opportunity to get to know one another filled with laughter and fun. The 20th Century Onyx Club members were on hand to provide support to the Debutantes and give them the necessary supplies needed to make a basket with bows, wrapping paper, ONYX, See page 14A

Three African Americans in China share their stories. There are more Africans and African Americans in China than you may think. “I figured I would come here so I could have the chance to increase my playing level, my skill level and I would be able to compete on a more competitive field,” said Olff, 25. For Olff, who grew up in Brooklyn, being in China is the first time he has stood out because of the color of his skin. His hair, which he wears in an afro or braided, is a particular point of interest. Some people try to touch it on the subway, and others take photos of him as he is walking down the street. “Sometimes I feel like

I’m in a zoo behind bars and people are taking pictures,” he said. “Let’s take that one home and share with our kids over dinnertime. It’s kind of awkward.” “There’s just lots of things Chinese people haven’t been taught, they just don’t know that this is not something that is considered polite or good manners,” Shane said. Negative views of black people persist. “I’ve had a couple of ladies look at me or see that I was near them and cover up their purses, or hug their things much more tightly,” he said. “A few times I’ve had people come to me and ask me if I have drugs for sale but I’m like ‘Nope, sorry, I’m just waiting for my friends.’” CHINA, See page 12A

Voices and View Points I Decree and Declare you are going to Make it Words to Live by

Dr. Lonnie G. McCowan, pastor of Miracle Center of Ventura

By Pastor Lonnie G. McCowan Regardless of what it looks like to you right now, God is still working in your life. If you will stay in hope and expectation of His goodness, He will still raise you up, He will restore to you the years the locusts have eaten, and He will still make all your dreams come to true God is faithful to His Word. I have pastor for some 20 years and I have been amazed at God’s Power that even in the midst of overwhelming impossibilities. God always causes us to triumph no matter how devastating things may look. I have SEEN Good take the very things that the enemy meant to destroy you, bless you and He will turn things around for your good. The first Key is to believe God is for you and your entire life is a set-up for His glory. The second thing is whatever, you do you

must stay in faith and believe that God’s power will still show up. God will show you incredible kindness and favor. But you must keep hoping because I have notice that the last thing to die is your hope. When it dies so do you. You may not think you need this information right now because when things are going well and you get the promotion, the man/ woman of your dreams marries you, and you can see increase in your finances and life is great for you , but when your back is up against the wall, that is when you must make the choice to keep believing. Amazing things are in front of you. Every day you need to let the devil know that you are NOT taking instruction from your circumstances! There have been many times when I have not known what God could possibly do to come through for me, I mean the tunnel look dark and every time I saw a light at the end of the tunnel it looked like a train coming in my direction but I have learned that if I stand He will do it. Regardless of what I see feel here. It is this kind of believing that is not easy; you must discipline your mind to keep it stayed on the Word, and you have to stay dogmatic and deterPaid Advertisement

mined that you will win! I know there are times it may seem like in your mind that God really hasn’t got a clue what He is doing and you are sure that you would be able to manage the situation better, but we can’t in any time we try to truth is we messed things up big time. His wisdom is so much greater than our wisdom he sees the beginning and the end we only see what’s in front of us. I’ve come to place in my life I don’t trust me I don’t trust you, I only trust God I believe in me, I believe in you but I trust God the Scripture never tells me to trust myself for man the Scripture says trust in the Lord with all your heart! It is this attitude that is help me time and time again. I have learned to trust Him. He is good at being God! Don’t whine about what you think should be happening right now, leave Him alone and let Him be God – you focus on doing your part, which is to keep your mind stayed on the Word! That means instead of worrying or have an anxiety find a scripture in the Bible and think about it over and over and over until the Scripture is real inside of you. Make the decisions that you are not going to be moved DECREE, See page 12A

There will never be Another Fidel Castro

Beyond the Rhetoric

By Harry Alford Born (August 13, 1926) out of wedlock on his father’s sugarcane farm in the third world nation of Cuba, Fidel Castro grew up to attend and study law from the University of Havana. It wasn’t long before he became a radical and soon drifted into socialist rebellion. He participated in foreign rebellions in the Dominican Republic and Columbia. Courageous, he returned to Cuba to attack a military barracks. That landed him in prison for one year. With his brother, Raul, and close friend Che Guevara, he journeyed to Mexico to thoroughly form his revolutionary agenda. It was called the 26th of July Movement. Landing by sea from Mexico in 1955, he formed an army and began revolution against the government of Cuba. By 1959, he led the demise of dictator Fulgencio Battista. This was the beginning of Fidel Castro, the President of Cuba which became a socialist government. It wasn’t long before the world considered Cuba to be a Communist State. Fidel was ruthless to his opposition. Thousands faced his firing squads. When he allowed a national election for the country, no opponents stepped forward. The United States considered this too close of a threat and sanctioned through the CIA to assassinate him. The dozens of attempts failed. He became increasingly intolerant. When US President John Kennedy became equally

intolerant of Fidel, he authorized an invasion made up of Cuban exiles from Florida and CIA agents. The invasion was a miserable failure. Countering these threats Fidel sold the Soviet Union collaborating with Cuba. Knowing the United States managed missiles in Turkey along the Soviet Union border, he convinced the Soviets to have payback by placing intercontinental missiles in Cuba, 90 miles from our Florida Coast. They both underestimated the resolve of President Kennedy. He demanded their removal and placed an embargo around Cuba. Eventually, the Soviets backed down and removed their missiles. By the way, the US removed their missiles from Turkey as a concession. This made Fidel Castro one of the most feared leaders in the world. Through the help of the Soviet Army, the Cuban Army was trained as a fighting force. Fidel and Soviet Union’s became close allies and Cuba’s government was fully converted to a one-party, pro-socialist state under the Communist Party rule. The nation also began relationships with other communist states. Eventually, we would find out that Cuban military forces were going to various communist linked third world nations. Soviet leader Khrushchev kicked off the program with an official visit to Moscow by Fidel and then kicked off a 14-city tour. After that we would notice Cuban military in nations like Angola,

Grenada, Ethiopia, Somalia, Algeria, Chile, North Vietnam, etc. With Soviet money Cuba was becoming a militant force in the Third World. Cuba even sent 4,000 troops to Libya to help fight in the Yom Kippur War against Israel. They even brought Viet Cong to Cuba for formal guerilla training. Soon this brazen program would end. The Soviet Union was going bankrupt! It formally reorganized itself and changed its name back to Russia and liberated the seized states of the 1940’s. It also cut Cuba out of its budget. This was a very crippling blow to Castro’s Cuba. The attempted spread of communism via military activity would soon end. Castro would start steering Cuba towards humanitarian programs. The famous medical delivery program that Cuba touts started replacing tanks and troops. They have aided millions of sick people over the years and all over the world. Castro has even offered to send doctors to US impoverished Mississippi Delta. The nation is 30% Black but there is no sickle cell anemia. Every citizen gets a six-month physical exam. Their medical system is free. Cuba became equally proficient in infrastructure programs. They now build bridges, highways, hotels all over the world. I have seen Cuban contractors building a 5-star hotel in Paris. It is amazing! CASTRO, See page 12A

Celebrating Friends & New Worlds The Mind Matters By Patricia Lynn Belkowitz, C.Ht., EFT-CC “Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.” ― Anaïs Nin Recently, I celebrated a friend. I celebrated her birth day and her death day. Mostly I celebrated our friendship. Susan touched my heart and soul. She awakened a dream. Together we created a new world for each other. We met at a pivotal moment in time where each of us was destined to serve the other. As fellow travelers on life’s soul journey, we were meant to cross paths. Sometimes in life, we are given the experience of enjoying a life-long friendship; the golden ones that endure the test of time. But sometimes, we are not given that luxury of time. And

then we learn that the value of friendship is not measured by the amount of days we spend with someone… it’s about how we spend our moments. Our physical time together was very short just over a year -14 months. During that time, we experienced the changes – heat and cold, rain and rainbows, sunrise and sunset, moonlight and starshine. We celebrated birthdays and holidays. We laughed and cried together. We dreamed a future that never came to pass. We spoke every day and shared our hearts. Life’s precious moments. Our journey was not a simple, easy path. It was wild and untamed, filled with surprises. At times otherworldly. It was turbo-charged and traveled at warp speed. It was also spent in timeless silence as we surveyed our beloved mountain and became one

Patricia Lynn Belkowitz, C.Ht., EFT-CC

with the earth. Oh dear friend, I miss you and wish you were still here with me to experience more of life! Friendship matters. I know I don’t have to tell you that. Everyone knows that. You have friends. And you have lost friends. I think what I want to tell you is this… Friendship is a choice we make. It’s a choice to love more. Some friendships FRIENDS, See page 12A

Three Steps to Your Strategic Advantage

Aspects Galore

By Sue Hines Are you on track to meet your goals for the year? Perhaps you are one of the lucky ones that have already met them. Maybe you’re a long way off. Don’t adjust the goals, adjust your strategy. Find Your Strategic Advantage in just 3 Simple Steps Over the past couple of weeks, I have run across several people who find claiming their talents or abilities to be outside of their comfort zone. As my focus for so long has been about positioning yourself for success, encountering several business people who feel they are bragging when they talk about what they do really well, and thus are miles from owning their strategic advantage. I offer, therefore, 3 simple steps to help people find their strategic advantage

and claim it without feeling vain or boastful. 1. Define How You Can Be of Service Write down 7 ways you are of service to others. “Service” includes any help you provide, any act of helpful activity. 7 is a magical number, it makes you stretch beyond the 3 or 4 typical things you think about. If you can find more, that’s great, but it is important to write down at least 7. Some examples of what your list might include are the services you offer and the benefits you provide. You may also include things like the special ways in which you do what you do. By taking the focus off yourself, and on to the service you provide, it become easier for you to articulate your gifts. For example, as a trainer might say 1. I help business owners work more efficiently. 2. As a Microsoft part-

ner, my knowledge and training helps them make the most of their software. 3. Through what I teach them, they get things done faster and with less hassle. 4. My training cuts their learning time in half. 5. Because of what they learn from me, they save hours of otherwise wasted time trying to figure things out for themselves. 6. I am patient, so they feel comfortable and learn quickly. 7. I know how frustrating working with new technology can be, so I have developed some techniques to help people feeling comfortable and in control. 2. Understand Why You Do what You do There are many ways to make a living, to pay the bills. How did you come to be doing what you do for a living? Describe the back story to your current situation. ADVANTAGE, See page 12A

By Raynard Jackson, NNPA Columnist Even the controversial 2000 presidential election that featured then-Texas Governor George W. Bush and Vice President Al Gore did not lead to this level of protest. No one disputed the fairness of that election; they disputed the counting of the votes. Eventually, even Al Gore accepted the results of the election and the country moved on. Many of the people protesting last week simply didn’t like the results of the election. Memo to Hillary supporters: Trump won, so, get over it. Stop whining and grow up! Hillary and her supporters felt like they were entitled to the office of the presidency. They thought that they deserved the office, because she was a woman with the last name of Clinton. She had been running for president most of her life and now that they came so close, they refuse to reconcile the fact that the

American people rejected her and her message. Trump won on a campaign theme of “Make America Great Again.” The liberal response was, “When was America ever great? America was great when President Lincoln freed the slaves. America was great when President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act in the 60s. America was great when we elected the first Black president in 2008.

America will always be great when voters accept the will of their fellow citizens when it comes to our free and fair elections. You don’t have to like the choice, but you must accept the result. This is what makes America great. Raynard Jackson is founder and chairman of Black Americans for a Better Future (BAFBF). For more about BAFBF, visit www. bafbf.org.

Kanye West Needs Real Help, HIV breakthrough: But It’s Likely that He Won’t Get It

By Julianne Malveaux (NNPA Newswire Columnist) Kanye West is melting down. He didn’t perform to expectations at two concert dates, declaring, at one, that he would have voted for Donald Trump for President and generating boos for his statement. In a subsequent concert he performed just a couple of songs, and abruptly ended a performance that should have lasted at least an hour. A couple of days later, he was hospitalized in a “psychiatric hold.” Some say he is simply exhausted, sleep-deprived and stressed.

Kanye West

Some say it is more. His mother, Dr. Donda West, died in November 2007. Nine years later, is he especially vulnerable to outbursts

and erratic behavior on that anniversary? In any case, even as many of us have admired Kanye West as a boldly audacious entertainer, we are also concerned about his very public meltdown and its implications. African American people don’t pay enough attention to the challenges that mental health issues face. We are more likely than Whites to experience mental health challenges, but far less likely than Whites to seek help. We minimize mental health challenges, laughing and WEST, See page 12A

Despite Progress, Colorectal Cancer Claims Thousands of Black Lives

By Dr. Patricia Maryland (NNPA Newswire Guest Columnist) Few diseases cause as much pain and suffering as cancer. While survivors, activists, policymakers and healthcare professionals have been successful in raising awareness for some types of cancer, others are not as high profile. Among them: colorectal cancer, the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths among men and women combined in the U.S. Even less widely known is the fact that African-Americans have the highest incidence and mortality rates for

Dr. Patricia Maryland

colorectal cancer. The disparities are impossible to ignore. AfricanAmericans are about 25 percent more likely than Whites to be diagnosed with this form of cancer, and about 50 percent more

likely to die from it. This is particularly troubling when considering that, in many cases, colorectal cancer can be prevented and is highly treatable, if it’s detected early, according to the American Cancer Society. While we’re still working to understand why African-Americans are more susceptible to this type of cancer, one of the causes of the disparity in mortality is that minorities lag behind in screening for colorectal cancer. Researchers at the University of Texas have shown that African-Americans are CANCER, See page 12A

New treatment shows extraordinary trial results leading to hopes for more efficient vaccines

Activists light candles on World Aids Day in Manila. HIV infection rates have remained high in Britain for a decade.

The transfusion of a synthetic antibody specifically designed to block the key viral protein receptor needed to infect human blood cells resulted in a dramatic lowering of the virus A new type of HIV treatment involving the transfusion of a synthetic antibody designed to prevent the virus from attacking human cells has shown startling trial results. Patients injected with the antibody saw a 300-fold reduction in their viral “load” – the amount of HIV circulating in their blood. The antibody has been specifically designed to block the key viral protein receptor needed to infect human blood cells. Previous tests on HIV antibodies had produced

disappointing results. But the latest clinical trial resulted in a dramatic lowering of the virus, which was maintained for several weeks after the initial in-

jection for some patients. The researchers believe that using synthetic antibodies designed to become attached to the surface proteins on the outer membrane of HIV could provide an alternative form of treatment to anti-retroviral drugs, and may also help to design therapeutic vaccines. It is the first time that a new generation of HIV antibodies has been tested in phase 1 clinical trials. Further trials could eventually lead to them being used in combination with existing anti-retroviral drugs to maintain better control over the infection to prevent the onset of Aids, the scientists said. “One antibody alone, like HIV, See page 12A

State News Rep. Karen Bass Hosts Small Business Waters Praises Settlement Against Workshop on Government Contracting President-Elect Trump's Phony University

A speaker talks to participants at “Cracking the Code: A Small Business Workshop on Government Contracting.”

LOS ANGELES, CA — On Friday, November 18, over 150 small business owners and constituents got the inside scoop on how to make government their next customer at an event hosted by Congressmember Karen Bass (D-Calif.). Titled “Cracking the Code: A Small Business Workshop on Government Contracting,” this forum and resource fair mobilized both federal and local support service providers to deliver resources to business leaders and others from the 37th Congressional District. Participants explored contracting for beginners, discovered what sells to government agencies, got help navigating the complex contracting process, and learned how to compete effectively and expand their businesses. They also gained guidance on how to

qualify as veteran, woman or minority-owned businesses, and found assistance to help them through the process. “Last year, small businesses across the country did over $90 billion worth of business with the federal government. The government paid these businesses for goods, professional and non-professional services, and construction projects,” said Rep. Bass. “I think it’s only fair that the constituents and small business owners from my congressional district benefit as well. Connecting business owners to specialists who can help further their business goals will benefit both my district and the government, who will find talented and capable entrepreneurs, manufacturers and retailers ready to meet government needs.” Long-time business ad-

vocate Dorothy Randle served as moderator. She is Executive Director of the New 9th Business Center, in the Office of L.A. City Councilmember Curren D. Price, Jr. Ms. Randle has played a key role in assisting hundreds of Los Angeles businesses to start up and expand. Ms. Randle was joined by senior representatives of the Small Business Administration, and five different local business support agencies, all of whom pledged to be available to the community and to meet them wherever they are in their path to business development or expansion. Congressmember Bass urges all interested constituents to contact her office for more information about the event or to connect with any of the business support agencies who shared their expertise today.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA), Ranking Member of the Financial Services Committee, released the following statement upon the announcement of New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s settlement with Trump University: “I commend New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman for his vigilance and commitment to the victims who were defrauded many thousands of dollars by President-elect Trump's phony for-profit university. Despite the President-elect's blustering denials, initial refusals to settle, and countless attempts to undermine and deny his victims even the most modest compensation, AG Schneiderman successfully secured a $25 million settlement with the President-elect that will provide restitution to each of the victims--victims who have endured a very lengthy and emotionally taxing process. Since my time in the California State Assembly, I have fought against fraudulent for-profit universities. My earliest legislation--the Maxine Waters School Reform and Student Protec-

Congresswoman Maxine Waters

tion Act--set a threshold for minimum job placement and graduation rates. Since that time, I have introduced several pieces of legislation that hold for-profit colleges accountable for predatory and fraudulent behavior. The CLASS Act, the Students Before Profits Act and the Quality Education for Veterans Act all put the interests of students and taxpayers first by eliminating mandatory arbitration agreements, holding forprofit executives financially liable for their actions

and by closing the loophole that incentivizes for-profit colleges to take advantage of student veterans. Of course, we all know that this is not the first lawsuit brought against the President-elect and his businesses. For his part, the President-elect has shown no signs of remorse, even boasting on Twitter that he settled the fraud case for only "a fraction of the potential award." While it is most disturbing to me that our nation's next president is celebrating what he perceives as another victory against his victims, writing off $25 million as a meager sum, it seems to be further evidence of things to come from the next leader of the free world. While he maintained for many months that he would never settle or back down, clearly AG Schneiderman's case was strong enough that the President-elect concluded he would fare better to resolve the claims now rather than have the extent of his fraudulent conduct exposed in court and in public. I remain committed to holding bad actors accountable and I invite the next president to do the same and lead by example."

Southern California ‘Subway’ Owner Sentenced for Sales Tax Evasion

Sacramento – The California State Board of Equalization (BOE) announced this week that Ajay Beri, restauranteur, was sentenced in Orange County Superior Court on November 1, 2016, to nine months confinement and three years formal proba-

Ajay Beri

tion. Beri pled guilty to felony sales tax evasion and agreed to pay $3,021,059 in restitution to the state. Beri paid $1,250,000 on the day of the sentencing and agreed to pay the remaining balance of $1,771,059

within 18 months. Beri, 45, of Buena Park, was the owner and operator of co-defendants Ajay Beri Corporation and Beri Restaurants Group, Incorporated. Beri and his wife operated Subway restaurants located throughout Orange and Los Angeles counties since 1998. The BOE’s investigation revealed that Beri collected sales tax from customers on the sale of food at Subway restaurants and knowingly filed fraudulent sales tax returns to the BOE to reduce his sales tax liability. As a result of the evasion scheme, Beri failed to report to the BOE more than $3 million in sales taxes collected. The California Attorney General’s Office prosecuted this case.

Blood Donors Encouraged to

Donate Now Due to Low Inventory

During Holiday Season

Blood inventory levels are currently projected to be lower during the 2016 holiday season compared to this same time period in 2015. As a result, United Blood Services California is encouraging blood donors of all types to give blood now. “Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood. There has been a significantly lower number of blood donors giving blood this holiday season, which impacts the way we can help hospital patients in need,” said Scott Edward, Donor Marketing and Communications Director at United Blood Services California. “It is crucial for those who can donate to please schedule their appointment today, because patients throughout our community and beyond are depending on it.” The blood inventory level for November 2016 is cur-

rently estimated to finish at slightly over 1,500 units compared to 1,643 units in November 2015. In October 2016, the inventory level was at 1,643 units compared to 1,881 units in October 2015. Additionally, the fluctuating inventory level has been trending at an approximate one-day supply for some blood types, which is only 25% of the ideal quantity needed to provide a safe and available blood inventory. Each week, United Blood Services California and its partner blood centers need at least 8,000 donors to meet the needs of patients in our community and beyond. Less than 40% of the general population is eligible to donate blood and less than 10% of those eligible actually donate. To schedule a donation appointment, please visit blood4life.org or call 877827-4376

study in Reading Research Quarterly, despite substantial investments by educators in reading technology, the results have been disappointing. When reading independently, today's students are struggling more and comprehending less than their peers in 1960. But one company has an approach that can help reverse the trend. Based on more than

80 years of research, Reading Plus believes the opportunity lies in integrating the three domains of reading: physical, cognitive, and emotional. When all three domains are developed simultaneously in one program, students become more efficient, proficient, and engaged readers, according to a white paper released by the company.

U.S. Department of Education Awards $104 Million to Support Minority Serving Institutions

The U.S. Department of Education announced the award of more than $104 million to Minority Serving Institutions. These five-year grants provide resources to 104 institutions, in 13 states, to improve and expand their capacity to serve Hispanic, Asian American, Native American, Pacific Islander, and low-income students. “All students deserve the resources to enhance their knowledge and skills in order to compete in today’s 21st century careers,” said U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King Jr. “These grants will help build a stronger pathway for some of our country’s hardest-working, low-income students, allowing them to unlock their unique potential, and contribute to the development of our country’s future.” Institutions of higher education are deemed eligible to receive funds under the Asian American and Native American Pacific IslanderServing Institutions and Native American-Serving Nontribal Institutions programs, if at the time of submission, undergraduate enrollment of Asian American, Native American, and Pacific Islander students was at least 10 percent. Under the Hispanic-Serving Institutions – Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics and Articulation program, eligible applicants include Hispanic

U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King Jr.

Serving Institutions with an undergraduate full-time enrollment of at least 25 percent Hispanic students, at the end of the award year immediately preceding the date of application. The grant programs provide additional layers of student supports and resources via institutional aid to advance the postsecondary attainment rates of both minority and lower income students. Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions Grant The Department awarded $4.7 million in new grant funds. These five-year grants provide resources to 14 institutions, in five states to improve and expand their capacity to serve Asian American, Native American, Pacific Islander,

low-income students. The maximum grant award is $350,000 per year for five years for a total award of $1,750,000. The average award ranges from $300,000 - $350,000 per year. Native American-Serving Nontribal Institutions Grant The Department awarded $7.2 million in grant funds. These five-year grants provide resources to 19 institutions, to improve and expand their capacity to serve Native Americans and low-income individuals. Hispanic-Serving Institutions—STEM Grant The Department awarded $92 million in new grant funds. These five-year grants provide resources to 91 institutions, to increase the number of Hispanic and other low-income students attaining degrees in the fields of science, technology, engineering, or mathematics; and to develop model transfer and articulation agreements between two-year and four-year institutions in such fields. The Obama Administration has taken a number of steps to widen access to higher education by empowering students to choose the best institutions for them through the College Scorecard, boosting Pell Grant funding, streamlining the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and maintaining low interest rates on federal subsidized Stafford Loans.

Sports News Raiders invite activist and Olympic legend Tommie Smith to light torch in Mexico City Tommie Smith, right, and John Carlos

By Frank Schwab Tommie Smith, best known for raising a fist with a black glove at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, will return there as a guest of the Oakland Raiders. Smith will light the Raiders’ torch, which is lit in honor of late owner Al Davis, before the Raiders’ game against the Houston Texans. The game will be in Mexico City as part of the NFL’s International Series. Raiders owner Mark Davis, Al’s son, is longtime friends with Smith. Smith and John Carlos raised a fist on the medal stand after the 200-meter race as a show of black power and support for civil rights. “It felt like [the salute] was the right time and the right moment and it fell in place,” Mark Davis said, according to ESPN.com. “It was awesome, and it will always be a moment that will stick with me.” The salute was controversial at the time and has endured for decades. This season some NFL players have been protesting for racial equality, and many of them raised a fist during the national anthem. Others have taken a knee during the national anthem. Those actions were immediately compared to what Smith and Carlos did in Mexico City almost 50 years ago. Smith told ESPN.com lighting the Raiders’ torch in Mexico City “feels like it’s come full circle.” He said he respects the Raiders for their progressive attitude when it comes to hiring practices. “This is a very, very historic moment for me,” Smith, who played two games for the Cincinnati Bengals in 1969 and caught one pass, told ESPN.com. “To do it for the Raiders – I have a lot of respect for the things that they do.”

LeBron James Donates $2.5 Million NFL Player Apologizes For Sitting To Muhammad Ali Exhibit During National Anthem

LeBron James is donating $2.5 million to support a Muhammad Ali exhibit at the Smithsonian’s new National Museum of African American History in Washington, D.C., the basketball star and the museum announced. The Cleveland Cavaliers forward said he was a longtime fan of Ali, one of the most beloved sports figures in history, who died on June 3 after a lengthy battle with Parkinson’s syndrome. “Every professional athlete, regardless of race and gender, owes a huge debt of gratitude to Muhammad Ali,” James said in a statement. “His legacy deserves

to be studied and revered by every generation.” The “Muhammad Ali: A Force for Change” exhibit features items from the late boxer, includ-

ing a training robe worn at Dundee’s Fifth Street Gym in Miami. While the exhibit details Ali’s sports journey, it also highlights his community activism, spirituality and politics. “We are extremely grateful to LeBron James,” said Damion Thomas, curator of the museum’s Sports Gallery. “As the most socially active superstar in sports today, LeBron James is a testament to the influence of Muhammad Ali (who) embodied the racial and social tumult of his times, blurring lines between politics and sports, activism and entertainment.” James’ business partner, Maverick Carter, is also contributing to the exhibit, which has been on display since the museum opened on Sept. 24.

By Maxwell Strachan Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans refused to stand for the national anthem before his team’s 36–10 victory over the Chicago Bears, instead choosing to sit on the sidelines in protest of President-elect Donald Trump. “I’m not big on politics or things like that but I told myself I said if this happens, then America’s not right right now,” Evans said after the game. “When he ran, I thought it was a joke, and the joke continues.” Numerous NFL players ― most prominently San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick ― have sat or taken a knee this year during the national anthem this year, but most have done so in support of the Black Lives

Mike Evans

Matter movement and in protest of the mistreatment of minorities in the U.S. Evans, however, made clear after the game that his reason was his own. “I’m doing it for a different reason, for how a reality star can be the president,” he said. “That’s not

a good look for America.” Some questioned Evans decision to protest the Sunday after Veterans Day, but Evans tried to make clear that he meant no “disrespect” to veterans. “The men and women that serve this country, I’m forever indebted to them,” he said. “But the things that’s been going on in America lately, I’m not going to stand for that. When Ashton Kutcher comes out and says we’ve been Punk’d, then I’ll stand again. But I won’t stand anymore.” Mike Evans apologized for his decision to protest in a statement released by the team on Tuesday.

Here's why Claressa Shields

won't be boxing's next superstar

By Kevin Iole LAS VEGAS – It’s laughable that anyone would seriously suggest that Claressa Shields will wind up doing for women’s boxing what Ronda Rousey has done for women’s mixed martial arts. And that has nothing to do with Shields, a twotime Olympic gold medalist who has star quality. It has everything to do with a clueless boxing establishment that doesn’t want to invest in its business, never thinks long-term and won’t come close to investing in women’s boxing the way the UFC has invested in women’s MMA. The UFC wasn’t the first promotion to promote female fights. But once they made a commitment to it, they committed to it fully. Women in the UFC are given equal treatment with the men in terms of marketing, promotion, card placement and media attention. UFC 200 in July was touted as the greatest card in the sport’s history to that time. A women’s fight was the headliner. UFC 205 in New York last week, which smashed all of the company’s financial records and which set a Madison Square Garden record – yes, even when adjusted for inflation – with a $17.7 million live gate, had three women’s fights on the card. Interest among UFC fans among the women is very high. Rousey, of course, helped popularize it. But the women were accepted be-

Two-time Olympic gold medalist Claressa Shields

cause of the way they were treated by the promotion. They were treated as equals with the men and so the public went along. That’s never been the case in boxing. Boxing promoters think event to event. There is little longterm planning. Promoters don’t have a one-year plan, a five-year plan or a 10year plan. Their philosophy is, “How do I make a score on the next event?” Shields, who won gold medals for the U.S. in boxing at the 2012 Games in London when she was just 17 and again at the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro when she entered with the pressure of being the overwhelming favorite, will make her professional debut on the undercard of the show at TMobile Arena that features a dandy of a light heavyweight bout between Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev in the main event. Boxing is a great sport and its biggest problem is a lack of quality promotion. That will be glaringly obvious to anyone who pays attention to Shields’ career arc.

National News They Were Sentenced To Die In Federal Prison,

Now They Want Obama To Give Others A Shot At Clemency

Kenneth Kemp, Sharanda Jones, and Jason Hernandez

By Ryan J. Reilly and Christine Conetta WASHINGTON ― A group of former federal prisoners who had their sentences commuted by President Barack Obama are urging the president to do as much as he can for other drug defendants before the end of his presidency. The initiative #cut50, which aims to reduce the U.S. prison population by 50 percent, held several events last week in support of its #ClemencyNOW campaign, which seeks to encourage Obama to grant an “unprecedented” number of clemencies before President-elect Donald

Trump take office in January. The group held a vigil in front of the White House and delivered petitions to the Justice Department in support of the initiative. Obama has granted clemency to 944 individuals during his presidency, including 324 people who had been sentenced to life in federal prison. While Obama’s clemency numbers are unprecedented in modern history, advocates had expected thousands of federal prisoners to be granted early freedom under the clemency initiative the Justice Department announced in April 2014. The White House has focused

on granting clemency to drug offenders who were sentenced under previous guidelines and would have likely received a lesser sentence if convicted today. The Huffington Post interviewed Sharanda Jones, Kenneth Kemp and Jason Hernandez. All three were sentenced to life in federal prison, but had their sentences commuted by the president. They spoke about the message they want Obama to hear now. “Whoever is in there come Jan. 20, if they’re still in there, they haven’t received clemency, they’re probably going to die in there. You’re their last hope,” Hernandez said.

Trump-Loving Man Throws Tantrum At Black Starbucks Employee Over Coffee

unusually slow pace is not. De Cárdenas declined to say whether he believed the barista deliberately took her time serving Sanguesa.

A man identified as David Sanguesa was filmed calling a black Starbucks barista “trash” and “garbage” while vocalizing his support for Donald Trump.

By Nina Golgowski A South Florida man was filmed ranting at a Starbucks barista after he claims he was denied service for supporting Donald Trump. In a video posted to Twitter, David Sanguesa, who is white, can be heard calling an African-American barista “trash” and “garbage” while accusing her of discriminating against him at the Miami cafe. “Because I voted for Trump. Trump. You lost,” he tells the unidentified employee before asking for his money back. “You’re garbage. You’re complete trash.” Starbucks customer Jorge de Cárdenas, who caught the explosive scene on his cell phone, told The Huffington Post that Sanguesa claimed “white discrimination” shortly before he started filming. Sanguesa didn’t deny that claim in an interview with the Miami Herald. “I was racially discriminated against,” he insisted, vowing to sue the coffee company. Sanguesa, speaking to HuffPost, apologized for his actions but accused the barista of holding a grudge against

him after he began holding Trump campaign meets at the Coral Gables location that he’s visited for 12 years. “Her face was the face of death yesterday. It was evil,” he said of the barista’s supposed attitude toward him. Asked whether she had said anything that would support his beliefs that she’s anti-Trump, he said: “It’s just from personal experience. She’s never been kind to me or my group.” Sanguesa said he finally exploded after he and a real estate broker waited 25 minutes for coffee that he said never came. “I paid for the coffee and I never was served,” he insisted. “She said, ‘I’ll get to you when I feel like it.’” In the near two-minute video, Sanguesa verbally attacks the woman and nearly comes to blows with another man who stands up to defend the barista. That man tells Sanguesa that he doesn’t know what happened, but that no one should be spoken to that way. Though Sanguesa’s opinions appear clear, whether he received his coffee at an

Attorney General Loretta Lynch:

You Must Continue To Report Hate Crimes

By Lilly Workneh Attorney General Loretta Lynch is urging Americans to report any hate crimes they witness to both their local law enforcement and the Justice Department. In a video statement she released, Lynch acknowledged the recent report released by the FBI that announced a national surge of 67 percent in anti-Muslim attacks in 2015 and an overall uptick of hate crimes by 6.7 percent last year in comparison to 2014. She also addressed the spike in alleged hate crimes that have been reported in the days since President-elect Donald Trump’s victory and encouraged Americans to continue to report these incidents while the FBI investigates whether or not they “constitute violations of federal law.” “We need you to continue to report these incidents to local law enforcement, as well as the Justice Department, so that our career investigators and prosecutors can take action to defend your rights,” Lynch said in the video. “We still have a long way to go to ensure that every American can live free from the fear of violence or harassment based what they look like, how they worship or whom they love,” she added. Lynch reassured America that the Department of Justice will continue to

enforce the country’s hate crimes laws to the “fullest extent possible” and champion diversity and inclusion, which she described as being “the bedrock of our nation’s progress, and that point the way to a brighter future.” “It’s about staying true

to our highest ideals and most cherished principles,” she said of her mission as attorney general. “It’s about making sure that all Americans receive the protection of the law. And it’s about giving real meaning to our shared belief that all people are created equal.”

Salary Negotiations Can Help Boost Your Income When Changing Jobs

The Skies So Earth Can Have Better Internet

By Nathaniel Sillin Whether you're actively looking to make a move or being lured away by a recruiter, a new job offers many opportunities for growth. Discovering how different organizations run and tackling the learning curve during the first few months is part of the fun, and struggle, of making a change. Switching employers can also greatly benefit your financial future. While staying at the same job could lead to a modest annual raise, you might be able to negotiate a much larger jump in pay when changing companies. Negotiating a job offer can be daunting, but consider what happens if you don't negotiate – you might wind up earning less than a hiring manager was willing to offer. Do your homework to find an appropriate salary range before negotiating. Whether you are a veteran or a novice negotiator, you may want to spend time

researching before sitting down at the table. Keeping in mind that compensation can vary depending on location, look online for studies or personal accounts that reveal the salaries of someone in a similar role. Several for-profit companies compile and share compensation information online, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics has pay data based on occupation and geography. You could also reach out to recruiters who focus on placing candidates in your industry as they're accustomed to discussing compensation. The more data on your profession's compensation you can get the better, because you want to be able to make a fact-based request. Ask for too much and you risk being seen as unreasonable or out of touch. Ask for too little, and that might be all you get. Job seekers often get

stuck on who says a number first. While advice ranges, one thing is for certain – you don't necessarily want to use your previous salary as a starting point. Especially if your research reveals you're below the current market rate, you want your next offer to reflect the experience and talent you bring to the table. If you're being pressed to respond first, answer with the salary range you're aiming for during your job hunt. Don't get stuck on money – keep the big picture in mind. It can be easy to fixate on the cash portion of your compensation when negotiating, but sometimes there isn't any wiggle room in the budget.

Post-Hurricane Matthew: How to PrepareYourHome forStorms (NewsUSA) - Sponsored by GAF - Risk mitigation. It's a phrase that comes up after every major storm -- Hurricane Matthew being only the latest -- as homeowners are warned that all too many houses are simply no match for high winds, and that prudence dictates they act to help protect themselves and their property from future storms. Think those warnings are needlessly alarmist? Probably so did all those New Yorkers who believed that a Hurricane Sandy could never clobber their city. So what should homeowners do, proactively, to increase their odds of beating Mother Nature? Read on. • Clean your gutters. Even in perfect weather, Angie's List says you're looking at a potential "nightmare" if they're so clogged with mounds of leaves, sticks, and other debris that it causes your roof to leak. Factor in a hurricanestrength rainstorm, though, and the very roofing system component meant to control the flow of all that water

-- thereby protecting your roof, walls, foundation, and landscape from flooding -can suddenly be rendered about as useful as a virusinfected laptop. "If you let gutter cleaning go by the wayside, it can cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars," the website cautions. • Reinforce windows. Need we say anything more than flying shards of glass? Didn't think so, which is why the Federal Emergency Management Agency -- in describing windows as "particularly vulnerable" -- recommends springing

for either impact-resistant glazing or permanent storm shutters. (A grief-saving tip from FEMA: "Tape does not prevent windows from breaking.") • Make sure your roof is in good condition. Even though a manufacturer's warranty typically doesn't cover roof damage caused by disasters like hurricanes -check your home insurance policy for that -- experts date what they call an "upsurge" of interest in stronger roofs back to 2011's Hurricane Irene.

By Andrea Davis Adding a new addition to your home is a great idea for various reasons. But interest rates and property values can change the effectiveness of your investment. If you are considering building a home addition, you'll want to consider the following information as you make your decision. Cost Possibly the greatest consideration regarding home additions is cost. Generally, many homeowners opt to build or renovate when interest rates are low and they can take advantage of home equity loans. When budgeting for your addition, it's important to plan for the costs that are often associated with major home improvement projects. It's also important to consider the additional costs of utilities and taxes that will affect your annual budget. Investment Value

Experts suggest that you can recover the cost of a mid-range home addition at the point of sale. This is the main inspiration for many homeowners investing in extra square footage. Even though extra square footage should drive up the value of your home, sellers don't necessarily recoup their entire investment due to other variables associated with property values. Enjoyment Factor Cost and investment aren't always the main considerations for homeowners who opt for new additions. Whether you're considering extra bedrooms or an expanded kitchen, an addition will improve the functionality of your home and increase your overall enjoyment. Stress From conflicts with contractors to the inconvenience of living in a construction zone, home renovations and new additions can be

fraught with stress. While stress is a con, it's also likely to be a temporary problem. Design Aesthetic A poorly designed addition can detract from the appearance of your home. It's important for homeowners to work with an architect who has the experience and knowledge to create an addition in keeping with the aesthetics of your home. Other Pros and Cons of a Home Addition Unless your new addition is a second-story addition, a home expansion is going to swallow up some of your property. Less yard space could prove to be a turnoff to some home buyers. On the other hand, staying in your home allows you to keep your great neighbors and reside in the community you love. Adding on to your home also allows you to customize the entire project to suit your household's needs.

Interest in impact-resistant roofs has surged.

By Chris D’Angelo On top of building a selfsustaining Martian colony of a million people, Space Exploration Technologies Corp., or SpaceX, has its sights set on supplying high-speed internet coverage to the entire globe. The California-based company, owned by billionaire business magnate and tech entrepreneur Elon Musk, filed an application with the Federal Communications Commission seeking permission to launch a network of 4,425 satellites ― each the size of a car ― into low Earth orbit. If you’re wondering just how many that is, there are currently 1,419 active satellites orbiting Earth, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists. “The system is designed to provide a wide range of broadband and communications services for residential, commercial, institutional, governmental and professional users worldwide,” the company wrote in a technical document attached to the filing. Ultimately, the internet project, which was first announced last year and which Musk estimates would cost between $10 and $15 billion, is part of the billionaire’s greater goal of putting people on the red planet. “This is intended to generate a significant amount of revenue and help fund a city on Mars,” he said of the project during the 2015 opening of SpaceX’s Seattle office. “So in looking in the long term and saying what’s needed to create a city on

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk speaks after unveiling the Dragon V2 spacecraft in Hawthorne, California.

Mars, well, one thing’s for sure: a lot of money. So we need things that will generate a lot of money.” He added that he hoped to have the system operational by 2020, with full capability in 12 to 15 years. Each satellite in the system would weigh 850 pounds and be about the size of a vehicle, Reuters reports. They would orbit at altitudes ranging from 690 to 823 miles above the Earth. SpaceX would begin by launching 800 satellites to provide widespread service in the contiguous U.S., Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, according to documents. After that, the company would expand services internationally. The application also touches on SpaceX’s plans to mitigate space debris and minimize accidental explosions. Each satellite is designed to function for five to seven years, after which time the company would “dispose of satellites through atmo-

spheric reentry at end of life.” Musk hopes to eventually make humans a “multiplanet species” by building a massive “Interplanetary Transport System.” Like something out of a science fiction film, giant spaceships would shuttle upward of 100 people, plus luggage and other cargo, to and from Mars. The trip takes six to eight months using current technology; Musk hopes to reduce it to 80 days or less. Musk has said his main motivation for accumulating assets is so that he can make the biggest contribution possible toward becoming interplanetary. “It would be an incredible adventure,” he said in September. “I think it would be the most inspiring thing that I could possibly imagine. And life needs to be more than just solving problems every day, you need to wake up and be excited about the future. Be inspired and want to live.”

The kit will cost you $1,999, but luckily, delivery won’t start until February 2017, so you have some time to save up.

By Joseph Menn SAN FRANCISCO One of the world’s most popular means of communication, Facebook’s WhatsApp, is adding fully encrypted video calling to its messaging app, a move that comes as privacy advocates worry about the potential for stepped-up government surveillance under a Trump administration. WhatsApp, which boasts more than a billion users worldwide, adopted end-toend encryption early this year, making it technically impossible for the company or government authorities to read messages or listen to calls. The new video calling service will thus provide another means for people to communicate without fear of eavesdropping though WhatsApp does retain other data such as an individual’s list of contacts. WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum said in an interview that video calls will

be rolled out to 180 countries within hours after the feature is introduced at an event in India. “We obviously try to be in tune with what our users want,” Koum said at the company’s unmarked Mountain View, California headquarters building. “We’re obsessed with making sure that voice and video work well even on low-end phones.” Koum told Reuters that improvements in phone cameras, battery life and

bandwidth had made the service viable for a significant proportion of WhatsApp users, even those using inexpensive smartphones. Apple Inc offers its FaceTime video calls to iPhone users, and Microsoft Corp’s Skype offers video calls on multiple platforms. But WhatsApp has built a massive installed base of mobile customers and has been steadily adding more features to what began as a simple chat applications.

Sticker Shock Ahead for Some Higher Vitamin D Levels Linked To Medicare Users Higher Breast Cancer Survival

By Patricia Barry Premiums for Medicare Part D prescription drug plans will increase in 2017 by an average of 4.6 percent — the largest jump in several years — but experts say that you should look beyond premiums and pay close attention to the copays you'll be charged for drugs. Some people will see huge price increases for certain drugs if they stay with their current plan, according to an AARP Bulletin analysis. For example, one plan that charged $7 a month for a generic drug this year will charge a whopping $352 a month for the same drug after Jan. 1. The analysis also found some enormous differences among the copayments that plans charge for a 30day supply of the same drug. Some plans charge $100, $350 or even $500 more than other plans. These trends, which effectively shift more costs to the beneficiaries, make it crucial for people in Part D plans to use Medicare's open enrollment period, which runs from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7, to compare plans according to the specific drugs they take, and find their best deals for 2017. Premium increases — more than 15 percent in

Pay attention to the trends in Medicare for next year, as they may cost you.

some of the largest plans, according to Avalere Health, a company that tracks health care trends — are announced in each plan's annual notice of change, which was sent to enrollees in September. These notices also describe the plan's tier structure — pricing categories that typically charge lower copays for generics and higher copays for brand-name drugs. But increasingly, plans are charging coinsurance — a percentage of the full cost of a drug — instead of set-amount copays. In 2016, the percentage of Part D drugs subject to coinsurance reached 58 percent, and that number is

expected to rise. Because enrollees are unaware of a drug's full cost, which each plan negotiates with the drug manufacturers, they can't tell what a percentage (whether 25, 40 or 50 percent) means in actual money. "It's not like going to a supermarket and seeing a price sticker on the package," says Kelly Brantley, vice president of Avalere Health. "It isn't transparent." Another trend is for plans to move a drug from a lower price tier to a higher one at year's end, or even to place a generic drug that you'd expect to fall in tier 1 or 2, which are the least expensive, into the much more expensive tier 4.

Those with a reduced sense of smell seemed to be at increased risk of Alzheimer's, the researchers said. "There is increasing evidence that the neurodegeneration behind Alzheimer's disease starts at least 10 years before the onset of memory symptoms," prin-

cipal investigator Dr. Mark Albers, from the department of neurology at Massachusetts General, said in a hospital news release. "The development of a digitally enabled, affordable, accessible and noninvasive means to identify healthy individuals who are at risk is a critical step to developing therapies that slow down or halt Alzheimer's disease progression," he added. It's known that brain circuits that process smells can be affected by Alzheimer's, and several previous studies have shown that people with the disease have a reduced ability to identify odors, the researchers said. The Massachusetts General researchers are now recruiting volunteers for a larger study to confirm their findings. The study was published online in the Annals of Neurology.

Poor Sense of Smell May Signal Alzheimer's Risk

By Robert Preidt A person's sense of smell may help predict their risk for Alzheimer's disease, a new study suggests. The researchers included 183 older people, and 10 had possible or probable Alzheimer's disease, the researchers said. Study volunteers were tested on their ability to recognize, remember and distinguish between odors. These odors included menthol, clove, leather, strawberry, lilac, pineapple, smoke, soap, grape or lemon. The study participants were then asked to complete another test of odors. The second test included 10 new odors in addition to those from the original test. These tests were developed at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. The participants also underwent genetic, imaging and memory tests.

Can Facebook Friend Requests Predict Longevity?

By Randy Dotinga Facebook is a ubiquitous part of modern living, and now a new study suggests that the social media app may even provide insight into how long you'll live. Researchers found that people who receive and accept the most "friend" requests lived longer. But, the same benefit wasn't seen for people who initiated the friend requests. "People who are more popular live longer, but we can't say the same of people who are more social -- (those who reach out to others more)," said study lead author Will Hobbs. He's a postdoctoral fellow at Northeastern University in Boston. "We've known for a long time that people with stronger social connections

in real life live longer," Hobbs said. "We live in a new reality where many of our social interactions now take place online. We wanted to find out if the same rules apply online." But while the study was able to find a link between the number of accepted friend requests and life span, it wasn't designed to prove a cause-and-effect relationship, the authors noted. For the study, the investigators worked with Facebook, focusing on 12 million users from California who signed up before October 2010 and were born between 1945 and 1989. The researchers also compared these users to California's eligible voter records, and ended up with a Facebook user sample of more than 4 million people.

Hobbs and his colleagues also used information from state records to identify 11,995 Facebook users who died between January 2012 and December 2013. The study authors compared the prior Facebook activity of those who had died to the activity of other California users. The researchers also looked at death rates among similar people in California who didn't use Facebook, and compared them to the Facebook users in California. The findings showed that people who didn't use Facebook were 12 percent more likely to die each year than those who did. But, Hobbs cautioned against "making too much" of this number because other factors, such as income, might have influenced this finding.

Higher levels of vitamin D may be linked to better odds of surviving breast cancer tumors, a new study states. According to the findings published in JAMA Oncology, a team at Kaiser Permanente used data from an ongoing study of California women — 1,666 breast cancer patients — testing their vitamin D blood levels and monitoring their health for nearly seven years (2006-2013). When compared with women whose vitamin D levels were under 17 nanograams per milliliter, participants with levels higher than 25 nanograms per milliliter were 28 percent less likely to die during the study — even after adjusting for factors like tumor stage, grade and type. In addition, the research indicated that the effect had a stronger influence on premenopausal women, the Daily Mail reported. After adjusting for other variables, those with the highest vitamin D levels were 55 percent more likely to survive. Moreover, they were 42 percent more likely to survive free of invasive disease and 63 percent less likely to die of breast cancer. “We tried hard to eliminate all possible confounding factors, but this is not a clinical trial,” lead author, Song Yao, an associate professor at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, N.Y. said. “So we

cannot say with 100 percent certainty that vitamin D can improve breast cancer survival.” “Overall, we found a 30 percent reduction of all-cause mortality associated with vitamin D levels at the time of diagnosis,” continued Yao. Why You Need Vitamin D As for the significance, vitamin D plays a vital role in the body’s ability to absorb calcium. Too little vitamin D results in soft bones in children (rickets) and fragile, misshapen bones in adults (osteomalacia). Not to mention, vitamin D deficiency has now been linked to • bladder, colon and prostate cancers • heart disease • depression • weight gain

• severe asthma in children Yao went on to advise people to get their daily dose of the calcium booster. According to the Institute of Medicine’s recommendations, persons under 70 should aim to consume 600 units per day while individuals over 70, should get 800 units a day. So, how does one meet their daily intake requirements? Other than getting some good old fashioned sun exposure, according to the U.S. National Institutes of Health, the best sources of vitamin D are as follows: • fatty fish like salmon or tuna and fish oils • milk • beef liver • fortified milk • egg yolks

feel overworked, stressed out, sad, angry – those emotions can slow your immune system, making you vulnerable to catching a cold AND powerless against fighting

its total body terror. Refusing to do so could result in a simple cold turning into something far worse, like bronchitis — inflammation of the lining of bronchial tubes. 5. Exercise regularly. On the flipside, exercise may be just as vital to preventing and curing a cold as kicking your feet up. To determine if exercise while sick is safe to do, Dr. Richard Besser recommends using the “neck rule,” meaning if you have symptoms like a stuffy/runny nose, sneezing or sinus pressure – symptoms above the neck – working out shouldn’t hurt and will likely help.

How To Stop A Cold In Its Tracks…Fast!

Sore, itchy throat? Head full of thick gunk? Body aches got you stuck in fetal position? Chances are, you’re coming down with something – nasty! Fortunately for you, the sudden onset of cold and flu-like symptoms such as: headache, chills, severe muscle aches, runny nose, fever, and profound fatigue don’t have to put a damper on your holiday shenanigans. Stop a cold in its tracks with five easy, affordable tips, sure to get the job done… fast! 1. Don’t overlook OTC meds. While pain relievers like acetaminophen will fight off body aches, allergy medications, like Zyrtec and Benadryl, can help ease symptoms like runny nose and watery eyes. Meanwhile, more powerful allergy treatments containing decongestants (Claritin D or Alavert D), can aide in clearing your sinuses and keeping you alert. 2. Drink up. Fluids are your friend! Not only do they keep you hydrated, but by drinking a glass of just about any fluid – with the exception of alcohol and coffee – you’re aiding your body in unclogging your nose and thinning out mucus, making it easier for you to blow or cough out. For those suffering from a sore throat, opt for warm liquids like hot tea with honey. 3. Eat up good bacteria. Some studies have found that eating 1 small container or ¾ cup of yogurt daily, reduces the body’s inflammatory response. According to a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition the beneficial bacteria (probiotics) shortened the duration of a cold by two days. 4. Rest up. Believe it or not, if you

Disney’s documentary on

first black animator is now on Netflix Floyd Norman was Disney's first black animator. He's the subject of a new Netflix documentary: "Floyd Norman: An Animated Life." (Photo courtesy of The Undefeated)

By Kelley D. Evans Floyd Norman penned his way into the hearts of Disney lovers more than five decades ago, sketching some of Disney’s greatest films. Norman, 81, was Disney’s first black animator, and now you can see the story of his life and the highs and lows he’s faced on Netflix in Floyd Norman: An Animated Life. The critically acclaimed documentary ran in theaters in August and can be now be seen on the streaming service to kick off this holiday season.

In the film, he discloses his experience in the world of animation as a black man and accounts some of the instances when he was often mistreated in the industry. “People have often asked me, ‘How did I feel being the first African-American in Disney?’ Well, I wasn’t even aware that I was an African-American,” Norman jokingly said. Although 1956 wasn’t a progressive time for blacks, especially in the world of animation, Norman proved that he was at the top of his game and

entered the industry based on “raw talent.” Norman has been honored as a Disney legend for his contributions and is featured on Disney’s DVD release of the classic Jungle Book. His resume also includes work on Sleeping Beauty, Toy Story, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Mulan and Monsters, Inc. Today, Norman, along with fellow black animator Leo D. Sullivan, runs AfroKids.com — an interactive website and entertainment venture.

Frank Ocean Calls Rejecting The Grammys

His ‘Colin Kaepernick Moment’

By Cole Delbyck In the four years since his breakthrough album “Channel Orange” broke all of our hearts, no one knows what’s been going on in Frank Ocean’s mind. His creative decisions have been shrouded in mystery ― Where’s the album, Frank?! ― and when he failed to submit his newest efforts, “Blonde” and “Endless,” for Grammy consideration, his patient fans just chalked it up to his perennial compulsion for not doing anything on time. Much like delay of his new albums, however, Ocean’s decision not to enter his latest work into the Grammys race was purposeful, and in this case, a political act. In a revealing new profile for The New York Times, the 29-year-old explains that he’s rejected the awards show system altogether, noting that it has largely ignored efforts from musicians of color in the Album of the Year category over its 50-plus-year history. “That institution certainly has nostalgic importance,” Ocean said. “It just doesn’t seem to be representing very

well for people who come from where I come from, and hold down what I hold down.” “I think the infrastructure of the awarding system and the nomination system and screening system is dated,” he continued. “I’d rather this be my Colin Kaepernick moment for the Grammys than sit there in the audience.” Kaepernick is the San Francisco 49ers quarterback

who has chosen to kneel during the national anthem before the start of football games this season, as an act of protest against “a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” Ocean, who has already won two Grammys and has been nominated eight times, prefers to have complete control of his music, eschewing the traditional methods of album releases and promotion.

Top Twenty Winter Towns to Visit for Christmas

Part I of II Almost all cities and natural landscapes look better in winter, when covered in snow. There are some places, however, which turn into something really special during the cold season, whether it’s thanks to the charming local architecture or the breathtaking surroundings – or both! The following is a list of some of the world’s most beautiful winter towns:

17. Tegernsee, Germany

landscape is quite rugged, which comes in contrast with the beauty of the very well-preserved medieval city center.

13. Zakopane, Poland

20. Ljubljana, Slovenia

Another fascinating Bavarian mountain town, Tegernsee is set on the shores of a picturesque lake and boasts a number of old buildings forming what is called Schloss Tegernsee (Castle Tegernsee), as well as a range of charming historical houses. The capital of Slovenia is one of the least famous among Europe’s important cities – which is quite a shame. Sitting at the heart of a country well regarded by wintersport enthusiasts, Ljubljana is a charming place and great stop along the way to ski slopes of the Julian Alps.

16. Brașov, Romania

A very popular tourist destination found near the country’s southern border, Zakopane is known as “the winter capital of Poland” – and for good reason. The town is surrounded by the Tatra Mountains (a mountain range within the Carpathians) and features its very own style of architecture specific to the region.

12. Vyborg, Russia

19. Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany

Set right in the center of Romania, Brasov is one of Europe’s hidden gems. It boasts that charming medieval vibe many towns in Transylvania are known for, most notably in the central square. Great vistas of the city are available from Tampa Mountain overlooking it.

15. Reykjavik, Iceland

Most famous for hosting one of the events of the Four Hills Tournament (one of ski jumping’s most prestigious competitions), Garmisch-Partenkirchen is an interesting site even for those who aren’t necessarily interested in that particular sport. Overlooked by some of Germany’s highest mountains –most notably the very highest, Zugspitze –, it perfectly epitomizes the charming Bavarian valley town.

18. Jackson, Wyoming, USA

Vyborg is an enchanting town located near Russia’s border with Finland. Established seven hundred years ago by the as a Swedish castle, is has been a fiercely disputed site ever since. Its origin as a fortification can still be seen in its layout, with the central fortress surrounded by water. The world’s northernmost capital, Reykjavik is a fascinating place. Beautiful without being in any way ostentatious, with elegant, if unremarkable structures, the Icelandic capital is a great destination for those who are comfortable in the cold, but also want to discover a city, as vibrant as one can be at below freezing.

11. Aosta, Italy

14. Bern, Switzerland

Located in the picturesque Jackson Hole valley, the town of Jackson, Wyoming is close to a number of national parks and ski resorts, features which make the place very popular with tourists. The majestic mountains of the Teton Range form a spectacular backdrop to the town, offering magnificent views both in summer and in winter.

Bern, the capital of Switzerland, is one of its most picturesque places. Located in the very heart of the country, the

The city of Aosta is one of the most remarkable places in Italy. Located in the northwestern part of the country, near the border with both France and Switzerland, it’s great for those who want to admire the Alpine landscapes near Mont Blanc, but also boast quite a few fascinating ancient Roman and medieval structures.

Commentary Three Action Steps to Fight Back Against Donald Trump

Democrats Could Lose Even More in 2018 Julianne Malveaux

Shaun King

It has now been two weeks since our country elected Donald Trump as the next President of the United States. I have to admit that 14 days later, it’s still painful to accept that we are going from President Barack Obama to President Donald Trump. In fact, if anything at all is clear, it should be that the only reason in the world we have a Donald Trump presidency is because he is a direct response from white America to our first Black President. But this morning, I come bearing solutions. As I’ve traveled the country recently, so many people have told me that they just don’t know what to do. The truth is that virtually nobody, including Donald Trump himself, was prepared for a Donald Trump presidency. We all knew what to do to stop him from becoming President, but nobody was really prepared for how to respond if he actually won. So, this morning I want to give you five very simple action steps to help you begin to fight back against Donald Trump. #1. Be well-informed. Hear me, I’m not encouraging any of you to be obsessed with the

news right now. That’s not healthy, but I also want to caution you from completely checking out. I get it. I hate watching news about Donald Trump, but find some journalists you trust, on television or online or on social media, find those few voices who you know keep it all the way real, and make sure you stay well-informed. #2. Refuse to normalize the ugliness of Donald Trump and his administration. We must call bigots out for their bigotry. We must call racists out for their racism. We must call sexists out for their sexism. We must call out those who hate Muslims & Jews for their Islamophobia and Anti-Semitism. What we are witnessing right now is Donald Trump and his team attempting to normalize and mainstream many people, policies, and practices which should not be mainstream. For instance, at a federal building in Washington DC, a group of NeoNazis who are friends with Donald Trump’s new Chief Strategist, Steve Bannon, were literally filmed doing Nazi Salutes, saying “Hail Trump.” We cannot let this ugli-

It’s Time to Give Our Money Marching Orders

ness go unchecked. Hate crimes are rising all over the country because of this ugliness. #3. Ask your city to become a sanctuary city and for your local public schools, colleges, and universities to become sanctuary institutions. A beautiful movement is forming all across this country, including right here in New York City, where mayors, public schools, colleges, and even police departments are saying that if or when Donald Trump creates a mass deportation plan for millions of undocumented immigrants, cities are saying they simply will not participate. They are becoming sanctuary cities and are openly saying they will refuse to assist Donald Trump’s administration in any basic ways at enforcing such a plan. Demand that your city become a sanctuary city. Demand that your local schools, from elementary school all the way to college, refuse to participate in any plan to deport students or break up families. We must impede this.

Up Call.” I listened to both of them this week and, while they reconfirmed my decades of spreading the “Economic Gospel,” those two messages from two astute, conscious, and conscientious Black men really illuminated—once again— the importance of marching our dollars to Black businesses and wielding economic power as a means to change our situation. Using dollars to reward and punish is a proven way of getting someone’s attention and, thereby, causing them to change their ways. Look at the many examples that have taken place just over the past ten years or so. Nations and their products were boycotted; sports organizations, entertainers, and conferences refused to hold events in cities whose policies went against their beliefs; and most recently we saw NBA Commissioner, Adam Silver, take the All-Star Basketball game out of Charlotte, North Carolina. Now in reaction to the election, three NBA team owners are boycotting all Trump hotels. Billionaires like Mark Cuban give their dollars marching orders. We must do no less. Our Billion Dollar March must be organized, measurable, maintained, sustained, and used to empower us. It must not be done solely to hurt someone else; it must be imple-

The apprehension that I felt upon Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election has only increased as he has announced the appointments of his chief of staff, strategist, and cabinet members. As of this writing, he has mainly announced the selection of older White men, including the racist, Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, to lead the Justice Department. The senator’s use of highly inflammatory racial rhetoric (including describing the NAACP as an “un-American” organization, and expressing support for the KKK) prevented his confirmation to the U.S. District Court in 1986. Now, he will be charged with law enforcement in our nation. Equally troubling has been the selection of Stephen Bannon, his campaign chairman, as chief White House strategist and senior counselor. Bannon is the Executive Chairman of Breitbart News, a news website that has been the home of the alt-right, the source of lies, hate, nastiness and racist rhetoric. President Barack Obama had to walk away from Minister Jeremiah Wright because one of his sermons was considered racist by some Whites. Trump openly embraces racists and is applauded for it. The position that Bannon will hold does not require Senate confirmation,

while the position that Sessions will be nominated for does. With 54 Republicans in the Senate, Sessions is almost certain to be nominated. Hopefully Democrats have retained enough of a backbone to raise questions about Sessions’ racism. Senate newcomers Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) may be among the first to raise the questions. Still, Republicans will have the votes to confirm anyone they want to confirm. Welcome to the age of Trump. Will Republicans get more of an edge in the Senate when we go to the polls in 2018? Thirty-three Senate seats will be up for grabs then. Republicans hold eight of them. Independents Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Angus King (I-Maine), who caucus and vote with Democrats are both likely to be candidates for re-election. A whopping 23 seats currently held by Democrats could be flipped. If some of the states that went Republican in this year’s election can be tilted, Republicans can widen their margin in the Senate. The Trump campaign (and its affiliated super PACs) have as much as $60 million to spend, and can use it to build ground operations in states where Democrats closely lost this year. (Hillary and her affiliated super PACs

may have as much as $70 million to spend). Democrats lost Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Florida, North Carolina, and Arizona by less than five percent. Incumbent Democrats Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisc.), Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), Bob Casey (D-Pa.), Joe Donnelly (Ind.), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), and Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) are all in states that Republicans won in 2016. While many of them are popular, and incumbency is a challenging thing to overcome, we’ve just seen that the right kind of Republican candidate can prevail. These candidates, and the Democratic Party, can’t afford to take incumbency or popularity for granted. They can’t afford to savor a polling lead and conclude that they don’t have to fight for every vote. If these folks want to go back to Washington, they’ll learn from the Hillary Clinton loss and work indefatigably, starting now, to keep their seats. They’ll make lots of visits back home, host town hall meetings, and make sure their voters understand DEMOCRATS, See page 10B

What Will You Lose If Consumer Financial Protection Goes Away?

James Clingman

In April 2005, I wrote an article titled, “Billion Dollar March,” at the behest of “The Ice Supreme Man” Ashiki Taylor in Atlanta. The article was in reference to our penchant for marching when we are upset, and then going home to sit down and wait for another crisis. This reaction to our grievances is so predictable and has no effect on the situations against which we protest and demonstrate. The obvious question is, “Why do we continue to do it then?” Because I don’t do foot marching, I won’t spend my time trying to answer that question; you can ask those who are calling for marches to explain it to you. What I will do, however, is suggest another kind of march: The Billion Dollar March. Just as in 2005, we are confronted with the same problems, the same conditions, the same powerlessness, and the same Black leadership that opts for foot marching as a way to get politicians to change, and as a remedy against unfairness, such as being killed by a rogue cop. Those of us who were members of the MATAH Network in 2000 will remember our monthly “Standing Order.” We received a book and a tape to help elevate our consciousness; two of the tapes were “Internal Reparations,” by Dr. Conrad Worrill and David Whitaker’s “The Wake-

mented to benefit Black businesses owned by conscious and conscientious brothers and sisters, because we know that, “everything Black ain’t Black.” The businesses we support must use some of their windfall profits to build a war chest to sustain the coordination of our Billion Dollar March. In addition to supporting and growing our local Black businesses, we must adopt a consistent, continuous, habitual movement centered on buying from ourselves. Every Black household should have Black-made products coming in at least once per month. Goods and services that we use on a regular basis, offered by Black producers, must find their way into our homes continuously. THE One million will keep track of our participation via pledges and feedback from our members and the businesses we support. Nationally syndicated columnist William “Bill” Reed recently wrote, “Blacks spend less money in Black-owned businesses than other racial and ethnic groups spend in businesses owned by members of their MONEY, See page 10B

As Americans adjust to the realities wrought by the recent elections, one of the most important consequences has yet to be fully explored: the future of consumer financial protection. Many successful candidates in the recent election repeatedly claimed that over-regulation, too much bureaucracy or both were harming the economy. In their view, the nation needed to let businesses operate unhindered and free from regulatory constraints. Additionally, many of the same forces that years ago opposed Wall Street regulation and the creation of a consumer watchdog never gave up their quest to weaken or dismantle the only governmental agency whose sole purpose was to protect consumers. The problem with both of these views is that as Wall Street made billions, America’s people suffered and lost: jobs, homes, credit standing and financial assets. The only thing that seemed to grow during the Great Recession was the amount of debt consumers faced and reckoned with at kitchen tables across the country. This column has previously shared how millions of Americans suffered their worst losses from 2004 through 2015. Others who may have held on to their homes, lost so

much value that they continue to owe more than their homes are now worth. There are also still others who thought they were enrolling in higher education to better their lives and earnings sadly discovered that heavy student loan debt was the only thing they incurred at for-profit colleges — many whose doors are now closed. For all of these reasons and more, our nation still needs the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), its consumer cop on the block. In the coming months we must remain watchful for legislation and executive actions that would reverse the financial justice accomplished over the past five years. Case in point: CFPB’s Director Richard Cordray has a term of service set to conclude in July of 2018. However, an October 2016 ruling by a panel of three judges with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit said the President could remove CFPB’s director for cause. The nation’s Presidentelect might want his own director — particularly if the court decision is upheld on appeal. Similarly, legislation that sought to end both CFPB’s governance by a single director and funding independent of Congress may be re-

vived as an early priority for the next Congress. It was legislative wisdom that avoided both approaches in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act. Commission forms of governance work by majority and can lead to gridlock instead of timely actions. Secondly, as commission members are nominated, lawmakers may refuse to act. If CFPB were to become a part of the annual appropriation process, the Bureau could be denied the necessary funding to do its legally mandated work. More importantly, special interest lobbyists could exert their influence on lawmakers to attach limitations on the Bureau’s work, blocking CFPB from its ability to rein in abusive practices. These kinds of DC insider maneuvers have repeatedly and unfortunately affected other federal agencies. Consumer financial justice should never be subject to the rise and fall of deep-pocket lobbyists motivated by profits instead of fairness. Then there are CFPB’s PROTECTION, See page 10B

MALIA From page 1A people here on Earth. She’s still a teenager. At this rate, she’ll be a billionaire in no time! Her father, Barack Obama and the President of the United States, trails behind her and is listed as having a net worth of a pitiful $12,000,000 (less by some reports). CNN From page 1A was skeptical of Trump’s claims that he wants to distance himself from the so-called alt-right movement, which is characterized by white supremacy, anti-Semitism and other forms of racism. But in the service of his argument, Kaiser used the word Nigger. DNC From page 1A Black Americans. On “Fox & Friends” this morning, Kevin Jackson pointed out the irony that President-elect Donald Trump is labeled a racist, while the potential future leader of the Democratic Party wanted a separate state for people of one race. Jackson pointed out that notable Democrats, including Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid, have thrown their support behind Ellison. He said that support amounts to condoning Ellison’s “racist policies.” “I’d love to see him become the new Democrat leader, because he certainly represents them very well,” Jackson said. “Keith Ellison is what I call an ethnocentric racist.” SESSIONS From page 1A expressed particular concern over legal action taken by the Clinton administration’s Justice Department years earlier. He questioned the wisdom of a Civil Rights Division lawsuit in 1999 that forced a North Carolina high school to drop its Native American mascot, and he cited a failed federal lawsuit a year earlier that accused the city of Torrance, California, of discriminating against minorities applying for jobs as police officers and firefighters. “The Civil Rights Division persisted, sued, and a federal judge found the suits so unfounded and frivolous that she ordered the government to cover Torrance’s legal fees of approximately $2 million,” Sessions said in the May 2002 hearing. “You should be aggressive, you should not allow and tolerate racial discrimination in America, but at the same time you want to be professional and balanced.” Under Attorney General Eric Holder and then Loretta Lynch, the Obama Justice Department has used “fact-driven investigations” and legal action to “drive real reform,” one department official recently said. Most notably, the Justice Department filed a lawsuit in February against the city of Ferguson, looking to overhaul “clear racial disparities” in its policing, as a Civil Rights Division report put it. A month later, Ferguson agreed to a series of reforms, including the appointment of an independent monitor to oversee implementation of the agreement, known as a “consent decree.” In all, Obama’s Civil Rights Division has opened 23 investigations into law enforcement agencies and is currently enforcing 19 agreements with police departments. Sessions has recognized that “within every department there are some officers who subtly, if not otherwise, are biased in the way they go about enforcing the law,” and he has said it’s vital that such bias be addressed. In fact, he told a Justice Department official during the 2002 hearing that the Civil Rights Division “has played an important role in delivering on this promise [of equality] by enforcing Congress’ civil rights laws in housing, employment and in the voting booth.” Sessions said the Civil Rights Division’s efforts “made civil rights a reality for poor minorities in the South and around the country,” but since then he has said little about using federal law to protect the civil rights of those discriminated against based on their sexual orientation, gender or disability. For years he opposed the Matthew Shepard Act -- which expanded the definition of “hate crimes” to include such discrimination. Earlier this year, when the Justice Department was publicly criticizing North Carolina for its law banning people from using bathrooms that don’t match the gender indicated on their birth certificates, Sessions was relatively quiet on the matter. But Trump weighed in publicly, telling Fox News that “the federal government should not be involved.” In 2002, Sessions said “there must be a consideration of balance” in the cases the Justice Department brings, and he expressed concerns over several lawsuits from the Clinton era, including a case out of his home state of Alabama. In that case, the Justice Department unsuccessfully claimed that a white politician was elected in a predominantly black district of Dallas County only because more than 50 white voters were improperly moved into the voting region, according to The Montgomery Advertiser, a local newspaper. “[We] lack the power to remedy the damage done to race relations in Dallas County by the unfounded accusations of purposeful discrimi-

nation made by the Department of Justice,” Sessions quoted the court as saying in its ruling. Race, meanwhile, was at the core of a controversy years later over why the Obama Justice Department decided to abandon charges against members of the New Black Panther Party, who allegedly intimidated voters outside of a polling station in Philadelphia on Election Day 2008. Department attorneys had decided the evidence was not strong enough to warrant continued prosecution, but Sessions accused the Justice Department of playing politics and failing “to ensure that guilty parties did not disenfranchise other voters in the future,” as he put it during an April 2010 Senate hearing. The department’s own inspector general later exonerated the Obama Justice Department, saying “the legal and factual reasons” that prompted the case’s dismissal “were well-considered,” and there was no evidence that the case was abandoned “for improper political reasons.” Holder came into the Justice Department promising to “reinvigorate” a department that had been rocked by a series of political scandals under the Bush administration, including what the inspector general found was “inappropriate” hiring practices based on politics within the Civil Rights Division. The division also suffered what many critics considered a desertion of its traditional mission to protect minorities, no longer prioritizing cases that targeted discrimination of black men and women. But Sessions has rejected that sentiment, telling lawmakers in April 2010, “I don’t think it’s fair to say the previous administration shut down civil rights enforcement.” And the Justice Department’s inspector general seemed to agree three years later, saying a review of Civil Rights Division cases during the Bush administration “found insufficient evidence to conclude that improper racial or political considerations affected Division leadership’s enforcement decisions.” A representative for Sessions declined to comment for this article, and others did not respond to emails seeking comment. LOPEZ From page 1A “We want to invite the entire community to be a part of the launch of the first Fifty150 Brand store,” said Robert Quiroz, owner and manager. “To be Fifty150 means to be ‘crazy’ to chase your dreams and persevere even in the face of enormous obstacles.” The founding of the store in Downtown Oxnard is the latest development giving momentum to an emerging community focused indie retail and restaurant scene in the city’s historic center. “We’re thrilled to welcome Fifty150 to Downtown Oxnard,” said Abel Magana, Executive Director of the Oxnard Downtown Improvement District. “Several of our merchants are participating in the opening celebration and all are excited with the return of retail clothing that appeals to a young demographic that will help drive more business to nearby restaurants and entertainment venues.” The Fifty150 Brand store features a variety of street casual wear including T-Shirts, hats, hoodies, and accessories for men and women.

CHINA From page 1A ‘YOU SPEAK CHINESE AND THEY NEED A BLACK GUY’ Mekael wanted to be in the kind of Chinese action movies that he had grown up loving to watch, so he came to Guangdong province because it neighbors Hong Kong, the city most associated with them. A New Yorker raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Mekael has now been in China for 13 years. In the U.S., he was a self-taught programmer. “What I wanted was to try another side of my personality,” he said. “I did the computing part, which is the super logical, math side. I wanted to try the arts side, the more expressive side.” He first taught English to kids and taught himself Mandarin and Cantonese. Wanting to become fluent, and find a foothold in the entertainment industry, Mekael, 35, turned to poetry. “I figured, for any language, usually the best speakers or the best users of that language are poets.” So he wrote poetry in Chinese and turned it into a rap. He played in clubs and at store openings, and went on Chinese TV shows as a contestant and host. He got his break in movies when a makeup artist he knew said, “Hey, would you like to be in movies? You speak Chinese and they need a black guy.”

DECEMBER 2, 2016

Now he has appeared in a handful of action movies, including “Chinese Salesman,” a film with Steven Seagal and Mike Tyson that is awaiting release. He plays Seagal’s bodyguard. In China, “it’s a sort of superficial racism, it’s not as deep as it is in America,” he says. “And the reason I say it’s superficial is because it’s easy to get past.” Once they see that “I can do the job just as good or my Chinese is just as good... then they’re like, ‘I think we like the black guy.’” DECREE From page 2A by what you see. State your life on the integrity of God’s Word!” Looking back at my life, I can see the hand of God now in the things that at the time, I cried, worried about and had so much anxiety about. God never had anxiety, never worried about it, he was always in control, God can always be trusted! I discovered that the best way to counteract a challenging season is to start to dream again. Get a vision of a better tomorrow. Stop meditating on what is not working, and stop imagining your worst-case scenario and planning your funeral; believe GOD to see HIS answers. Start dreaming about what it will feel like when you have your breakthrough. Don’t let discouragement and depression seize your soul. Think about the things you will do when the Lord raises you up to bless humanity. Remember put God first in everything you do live your life with passion and I’ll see you at the top.

The last years were spent as a figure head while his brother Raul took the reigns as a virtual leader until his death. There are few individuals in modern history that became as controversial as Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz. Love him or hate him, his influence on our world was definite. After 90 years, there is no more Fidel Castro. I predict Cuba will become more capitalistic and at peace with the United States. My mentor, the late Arthur A. Fletcher predicted, “One day Cuba will become the Hong Kong of the Caribbean.” That appears to be happening. Mr. Alford is the co-founder, President/CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce®. Website: www.nationalbcc.org Email: halford@nationalbcc.org FRIENDS From page 2A are simple. Some are very complex. But all friendships are valuable. Sometimes we don’t make a conscious choice to become friends with someone; to begin a relationship. It happens. We accept it. As beings, we are not meant to be alone. We need others. Relationships help us to grow and become stronger, wiser, better. The joy of loving far outweighs the pain of loss. Friendship is a gift of great value. Treat it with respect and great care. Give it your attention. Do it now. If it matters. Each friendship is an agreement. Honor the agreements or negotiate new ones. We make a pact to be together to share in the experience of life. We support each other. We challenge each other. We disappoint one another. We bring joy to each other. We bear witness. Life is not meant to be a solitary experience. Each one of us is an important part of the tribe of humanity. A friend opens up new worlds. You get to experience life from their unique perspective and understanding. You taste new flavors. Friends spice things up. You hear the music of a different soundtrack and learn to dance to a different beat. You can adopt or reject the new but you can never become unaware of its existence. You have been changed just by the exposure to it. When you are fortunate enough to experience a life-long friendship, you gain more. You learn from the choices you see your friends make. You gain another source of wisdom and a trusted advisor. Muhammad Ali said “Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It’s not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything.” May you experience new worlds and celebrate the friends in your life!

ADVANTAGE From page 2A Any good story has 3 important parts – a beginning, a middle and an end. Your story should have at least one paragraph for each part – and the end should follow logically from what came before (it’s what that makes the plot come alive). When you do this well, it establishes your credibility. Even if your current work serves only to pay your bills, you can make a story about why and how that works for you. If you are just starting out, make your story about what led you to where you are. If you simply drifted into it as a result of many different things, you can make your story about the choices you made along the way to get where you are. Writing the story focuses your

attention on the decisions you made and helps you get in touch with your “WHY.” When someone speaks from that kind of understanding, people do not see it as bragging or boastful. 3. Find out what others say about you. If you have client testimonials, get them out and go through them. What are people saying about you? What is your “style”, what do they remember about their encounters with you. At first, set aside the vague ones that simply say things like: “You did a great job. Thank you” or “You provided great service.” Look for ones that hold clues to your personality or character and focus on them first. “Great service” is only special when combined with some qualifying aspect or adjective, as in: “Thoughtful service” or “Expert service”. If you don’t have testimonials, contact 5 people (phone or email) and tell them you are working on some personal development or brand development and ask them to provide you with feedback. You will find people are surprisingly generous with their time for this kind of thing. Look through the results of the 3 steps, how you are of service, why you do what you do, and the effect you have on other people. Summarize and synthesize the information. It holds Your Strategic Advantage. If it doesn’t immediately jump out at you, share it with a friend or your partner. Sometimes they can spot the essence that you have trouble seeing. Most important of all, though, is that you take the results to heart. Only then can they truly become your advantage.

WEST From page 3A calling those who are challenged crazy and cray-cray (I confess, I do this from time to time). We don’t respond to their very public cry for help. Yes, Kanye West was crying for help. His inappropriate public behavior could have been interpreted as an ask for someone to take him, hold him, comfort him, hear him. Instead, he had a challenging concert schedule, a schedule that would have brought him millions of dollars. Cancelling the schedule may have saved his health, but it has cost him millions of dollars. Imagine the pressure he must have felt; he might have thought, “Can I go on and save the day? Must I step aside and take a hit?” Most African Americans who face mental health challenges face some of the same concerns Kanye West must have. If you share your mental anguish, you are cray-cray, the object of jokes and ridicule. If you hide it, you are eaten alive by an anguish that forces you to say “fine,” or “okay,” when people ask you how you are doing. Just like we tell people to take an annual physical, to feel their breasts for lumps, to get the prostate check, we need to encourage folks who are a bit erratic to check in with their doctors about their mental health. We don’t do that and, indeed, many health plans limit access to mental health professionals. But the mental health status of African Americans too often collides with the law enforcement system when “erratic” behavior on the part of some African Americans is seen as simply criminal. People who are mentally ill and need help are too often incarcerated or killed because some police forces lack the tools to manage a mental health crisis that is likely growing. Consider the case of Anthony Hill, a naked and unarmed Atlanta Air Force veteran who was acting erratically in his apartment complex in early March. Someone called 911, because a naked man was knocking on doors and “acting deranged.” When DeKalb police officer Robert Olsen encountered Hill, he asked him to stop, and when he did not, he was shot twice. Mr. Hill didn’t have a weapon, and anybody who is hanging out naked is clearly mentally impaired. Meanwhile, Officer Olsen had a Taser, but he chose to use his gun, but he chose to use his gun against a naked, weaponless man. Olsen was charged with murder and indicted and, in October, was ordered to stand trial. The trial may begin late this year or early next year. Meanwhile, it is significant to note that Anthony Hill was believed to be bipolar, and suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome. He served our country in Afghanistan, and tried unsuccessfully to get an appointment, and some help, from the veteran affairs hospital in Atlanta. Might the outcome of his erratic episode have been different if mental health professionals, not a trigger-happy officer, were deployed to intervene? Should mental illness be a death sentence? It was for Anthony Hill, and for many others who don’t get the help they need. Even as the incoming President attempts to reverse some aspects of the Affordable Care Act, conscious health advocates must insist that mental health coverage is as im-

portant as physical health coverage. It is disgraceful that a veteran should be shot, because his mental illness got the better of him. It is disgusting that dozens of others who are unarmed and mentally ill are shot, because people untrained to manage mental illness are sent to communities, gun ready, and oblivious to alternatives. And it is disturbing that Kanye West is melting down in plain sight, drowning his pain in angry vitriol. When can we, African Americans, talk about the mental health crisis that exists in our community? It isn’t going to get better, as hate crime escalates and swastikas begin to adorn our city walls. Some of us will want to fight, and others will be driven to despair. We must speak of mental health and healing, and we must speak of it often. One of Kanye West’s colleagues, 9th Wonder said, “Been knowing the brother upwards of 13 years. Mental healing is a serious thing, no matter what. Stay strong Kanye West.” Ashe’. CANCER From page 3A less likely than White patients to receive a colonoscopy — the most common form of colorectal cancer screening — even when controlling for health insurance coverage and access to quality healthcare providers. Both patients and providers bear some responsibility for the lower rates of colorectal cancer screening among African-Americans. On the patient side, AfricanAmericans may not know that they are at a heightened risk of experiencing colorectal cancer earlier than other groups. In the AfricanAmerican community, the share of colorectal cancer cases that occur before the generally recommended screening age of 50 is almost twice as high as among Whites. That’s why experts advise African-Americans to begin screening at age 45, five years earlier than other demographics. But encouraging early and proactive screening is complicated. The invasiveness of the procedure, coupled with fears of pain, often causes African-American patients to rule it out as a preventive measure. What’s more, a lack of access to a physician they trust leads many members of the African-American community to delay this important procedure until it’s too late. In addition, healthcare providers sometimes contribute to the low colorectal cancer screening rates among African-Americans. A recommendation from a physician has been shown to increase the likelihood that a patient will get a colonoscopy, but according to the American College of Gastroenterology, African-Americans are roughly one-third less likely than Whites to get such a recommendation. HIV From page 3A one drug alone, will not be sufficient to suppress viral load for a long time because resistance will arise,” said Marina Caskey of the Rockefeller University in New York, the lead author of the study published in the journal Nature. “What’s special about these antibodies is that they have activity against over 80 per cent of HIV strains and they are extremely potent,” Dr Caskey said. HIV-infected patients in the trial received different doses of the antibody. The eight patients who received the highest dose showed up to 300-fold decreases in the amount of circulating HIV in their blood, and in half of them the viral load remained below starting levels at the end of the eight-week study. “This exciting novel study shows for the first time that antibodies may have a place in the line of therapies directed against HIV,” said Professor Vincent Piguet, director of the institute of infection and immunity at Cardiff University, who was not involved in the study. “This is good news for the fight against HIV, but a fully developed antibody to treat HIV-1 might still take a few years to develop,” he added. The antibody is known as 3BNC117 and was originally isolated in the same laboratory where the latest work was carried out. The antibody is a protein that attaches to the key receptor on the outer protein coat of the HIV virus which binds to the membrane of the human T-cells it infects. Tests have shown that 3BNC117 is effective at controlling 195 of the 237 strains of HIV – making it a “broadly neutralising” antibody that could be used in many HIV patients, the scientists said. These broadly neutralising antibodies are naturally produced in about 10 or 30 per cent of people with HIV, but only after several years of infection when the virus has typically evolved to “escape” from these powerful antibodies. By making synthetic copies of the antibody and infusing large enough amounts of them at an earlier stage in a patient’s infection, the researchers hope to suppress the infection and make it easier to control with the help of other treatments such as anti-retroviral drugs. “In contrast to conventional anti-retroviral therapy, antibodymediated therapy can also engage the patient’s immune cells, which can help to better neutralise the virus,” said Dr Florian Klein of Rockefeller University and a coauthor of the study.

Dr Andrew Freedman of Cardiff University, said: “Although such antibody treatment would not be sufficient on its own, it might prove useful in combination with drug therapy, as a means of achieving better long-term control or even cure of HIV infection. It may also be effective as a way of preventing HIV infection, in the absence of a vaccine.” HIV treatments: Breakthroughs and false dawns A trial earlier this year involving 12 NHS trusts across England found that gay men who took a daily pill containing a cocktail of two anti-retroviral drugs significantly reduced their risk of contracting HIV by an unprecedented 86 per cent. The Proud study found that pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) could be a “game changer” in reducing new infections and may be cost effective in terms of reducing the rise of HIV disease. Two other patients with HIV who had been thought to be cured following treatment for blood cancer suffered a viral “rebound” in 2013. Researchers in Boston said they had been unable to detect any signs of HIV in either patient following their treatment – a bonemarrow transplant for lymphoma cancer. However, both patients have since returned to taking antiretroviral drugs after HIV reappeared in their bloodstream. Timothy Brown, the “Berlin patient”, remains the only person with HIV to be “functionally cured”. Mr Brown, who now lives in San Francisco, received a bonemarrow transplant in 2007 to treat leukaemia. The donor was carrying a specific mutation that prevents HIV from attacking white blood cells. However, such transplants are risky, expensive and not suitable for widespread treatment. LITERACY From page 5A Dr. P. David Pearson, the first chairman of the International Literacy Association’s Literacy Research Panel, says, “It’s not only about becoming faster and more efficient in independent silent reading. It’s doing it with comprehension, and with the ultimate goal of acquiring knowledge and enhancing personal interests.” Here is an overview of the three domains, according to the white paper: • Physical. Reading begins with a physical skill - the visual processing of text. Students who labor to read have not yet developed this skill. They spend their energy trying to process words and have little left to understand what they’ve read. Unless physical skills are developed, students continue to labor, fall behind, and ultimately lose interest in reading. • Cognitive. Vocabulary and comprehension have long been the focus for reading development. Most approaches assume that improvement results from student practice with increasingly complex texts. However, research shows that vocabulary is the best indicator of text complexity, yet readability measures emphasize sentence length. Matching students with the text levels that allow them to develop skills at the pace they need is critical. • Emotional. Tapping into students’ interests builds confidence and motivation. Students who read what they like are more interested and engaged in reading; more interested and engaged students become better readers; and better readers become lifelong readers. It’s essential to let students choose to read what they like. For more information on the study and Reading Plus, visit www.readingplus.com. WORD-FINDS, From page 5A

Debutantes with Thanksgiving Baskets

They were in anticipation wondering what the families would say or the look on their faces. When the family members in need

received their baskets, the smile and thank you they gave made you know the importance of giving back to the needy. This is some-

thing we should do all year long. So when you see someone in need. Make sure you give from your heart with a smile.

The People’s Throb

Home from foreign wars, U.S. Veterans ages 30-39 commit suicide four times the national average (7,403 in 2014).Younger vets, (18-29) are nearly six times that average, about 20 per day. What can we do? By Gary L. Harbour

“I believe that we should better educate our youth and prepare them for the mental battles they will face when they enlist into the service. I am not an expert but I believe the mental strain they encounter, especially when out on the battlefield, is beyond what they are prepared for.”

“I believe there should be more funding to promote the safe transition from military to civilian life.”

“Immediate attention to vets who return home, with a plan to assist them as they all return home damaged.”

“Give them housing and make sure that the V.A. takes care of them.”

“PRAY. Encourage them to have a relationship with Christ.”

“The V.A. needs to clean up the medical facilities and make sure they have enough quality clinicians that actually understand why the men and women that served us need their understanding and compassion, despite politics.”

Woman claims to be Prince’s wife, files for control of his estate

Claire Elisabeth Elliott

Claire Elisabeth Elliott wants full control of the multimillion-dollar Prince estate. To back up her claim to the estate, she says that

she married the late icon before his death, and she claims to have the marriage certificate to prove it. Elliott alleges that she and Prince were married in 2002 in secret by a rabbi named Ross Dreiblatt in Las Vegas, who also drew up a “secret will” for Prince. “Because the CIA and other agencies consider both documents to be Top Secret, Ross cannot publicly release either document without being properly served a subpoena,” the affidavit reads. Elliot also took to Facebook to answer questions after TMZ reported on her alleged marriage to Prince. “We didn’t walk down the aisle, we just stood at the altar and got married,” she wrote. According to her Facebook page, she is married to a man named Dean and lives in Georgia. Elliott also insists that she’s “not insane.” The filing adds a new wrinkle to the ongoing battle over Prince’s estate. The late singer did not leave a will, and six people are confirmed to be inheriting portions of his estate: his sibling Tyka Nelson and his half-sibling Sharon, Norrine and John Nelson, Alfred Jackson and Omarr Baker.

Howard Dean:

Trump Chose a 'Nazi' to Be

His Senior Adviser

Former Democratic National Committee chair Howard Dean said in an interview Sunday that President-elect Donald Trump appointed a “Nazi” to be his top strategist. The former Vermont governor and 2004 presidential candidate was lamenting Trump’s selection of Steve Bannon to be White House Chief Strategist and Senior Counselor. Speaking to CTV News, Dean preceded the comment by saying he doesn’t disagree with everything Trump wants to do, pointing to a public-private infrastructure proposal and the “reasonable” selection of Reince Priebus as chief of staff.

Ask Alma:

What’s Really Going on with Mr. West?

By Alma Gill (NNPA News Wire Columnist) Dear Alma, Alma, I’m wondering what’s going on with Kanye West? Do you think there are some underlying reasons why he’s suffering from ‘exhaustion’ and cancelling his shows? I am a huge fan and I made sure to see him anytime he was within 100 miles from where I live. As a super fan, I mean from way back to the “College Dropout” days, I am seriously worried about him and was wondering what your take is? Signed, Missing the Old Kanye Dear Missing Kanye, Funny you should ask this question as I’ve recently added Kanye to my prayer list. Clearly he has validated

Alma Gill says that along with prayer, Kanye West needs professional help.

for us, money doesn’t buy endless stints of euphoria. Nope, life doesn’t constantly deliver peace of mind, your way every day or relief from unimaginable grief. My heart strongly feels Kanye is suffering from just that — grief. He has yet to settle his soul when it comes to the death of his mother.

Maybe he feels responsible, as if he contributed in some way. Contemplating perhaps that his dream come true, chance of a lifetime, provided payment for his mother’s procedure. His actions, his pain, leads me to believe he’s trying to pay off a nonrefundable loan with his life. ALMA, See page 10B

City of Port Hueneme Hires New City Manager

PORT HUENEME -- The City Council approved a three year contract with Rod Butler to assume the position of City Manager. The decision was made after an extensive recruitment process and thorough review of several of the final candidates. Mr. Butler replaces Cynthia Haas who resigned last December. The position was filled by two interim City Managers while the recruitment process was completed. Mr. Butler comes to the City of Port Hueneme with seven years of previous City Manager experience including the cities of Upland, Patterson and Crescent City. He also has six years in management capacities in Pomona, Ontario and the County of San Bernardino. His educational background includes degrees from UC Riverside (Bachelors) and Long Beach State (Master of Public Administration). The road ahead for Mr. Butler in Port Hueneme is going to be a challenging one. He will be working with a reorganized City Council – a Council that is facing some severe financial circumstances. These issues have had an impact on employee retention particularly at the executive management level. He will have the opportunity to hire a Police Chief, Finance Director and Public Works Director. In responding to the Council’s decision to retain him as City Manager Mr. Butler stated “I really appreciate the City Council's confidence in me, and I look forward to getting to work in Port Hueneme very soon. I have already started my search for a new home in Port Hueneme, and I am excited about both working and living in the community.” Mr. Butler’s first day on the job will be December 5th.

Ventura County Credit Union Supports Holiday Can Drive

V E N T U R A — Ve n tura County Credit Union (VCCU), a not-for-profit financial institution, and The Foundation of VCCU, a nonprofit organization with a mission to provide financial assistance and education to the local community, are collecting monetary donations for Ventura County FOOD Share’s fifth annual CANtree Collection food drive. For the CAN-tree Collection, individuals, organizations and businesses collect canned goods or “buy and build” by sending funds directly to FOOD Share to purchase the cans. Then, these individuals and businesses come together on

Dec. 2-4 at The Collection at Riverpark in Oxnard to stack the cans into a display of holiday-themed Christmas trees. VCCU’s goal this year is to raise $15,000 to build 30 CAN-trees — consisting of 15,000 cans. When the event is completed, FOOD Share will distribute the donated cans to food pantries that service 74,500 Ventura County residents who are food insecure during the holidays. In preparation for this year’s CAN-tree event, VCCU and The Foundation will be collecting monetary donations at VCCU’s branches. All funds raised during this campaign will go directly to

FOOD Share. FOOD Share is able to turn every $1 collected into $5 worth of food. In addition to monetary contributions, VCCU members can donate nonperishable food items at its seven branch locations where collection points are available. “This event embodies the best of charitable giving,” said Joe Schroeder, CEO of VCCU and board president of FOOD Share. “I have personally challenged VCCU employees for donations, and will match up to $2,500.

We are trying to tear down those barriers.” Free to the public, the fair was held in and around the Frances Huggins Community Clinic, an old trailer that nursing students transformed into a free clinic. The fair offered depression and anxiety screening from CI nursing, psychology and health science students as well as information about where to get help. Guest speakers discussed mental illness, its causes, effects, treatment and other aspects of an area often poorly understood in those with few economic resources who may lack access to mental health information or care. Ballet Folklorico entertained because “music and dance are ways to relieve stress and improve mental health,” Davis-Smith said.

A hearing on the petition will be held on Date: 01/04/2017 at Time: 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: J6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 E.

Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250.

Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a Trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the

lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property. Notice to Property Owner The sale date shown on this Notice of Sale may be postponed one or more times by the Mortgagee, Beneficiary, Trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about Trustee Sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call Auction. com at 800.280.2832 for information regarding the Trustee’s Sale or visit the Internet Web site address www.Auction.com for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, CA0500074116-1.

SALARY From page 8A and benefits. Perhaps a lower-than-desired cash offer is offset by a generous retirement contribution matching program, great healthcare benefits, stock incentives or bonus opportunities. When the total compensation doesn’t meet your expectations, try to think outside the box and give the hiring manager alternative options. You could request additional paid time off, the freedom to work from home one day a week or a professional development stipend. After all, flexibility and personal growth can be more valuable than money. At smaller companies, you could ask for a quarterly lunch with an executive in your department or your direct supervisor. A lunch won’t cost the company much money, but it could give you insight into the company’s future, let you know which skills to focus on developing and strengthen your personal relationship with higher ups. Back up your request with valid reasons. Aim to reinforce each of your negotiation requests with a valid, relatable and quantifiable reason. When asking for more money, point to experience or skills that distinguish you from other candidates. Less traditional requests, such as meetings with an executive, could be justified by your dedication to self-improvement and desire to stay in touch with the company’s needs. STORMS From page 8A such as Delaware, North Carolina and Virginia was that gut-wrenching. “If you are going to replace your roof, consider shingles that have passed the UL2218, Class 4 impact test, the toughest in the industry,” says Jason Joplin, program manager of the Center for the Advancement of Roofing Excellence. Joplin especially likes the Timberline ArmorShield II line of shingles from GAF (gaf.com), North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, which -- in addition to looking good -- are made with what he describes as “a rubber-like material for enhanced flexibility and durability during extreme weather conditions.” Added bonus: Depending on where you live, the shingles may also qualify for significant discounts on that homeowners insurance of yours. • Trim weak tree branches. Not to belabor the dangerous projectile angle, but ask yourself this: Unless you’re 5 years old, would you want even Santa Claus crashing into your house at hurricane-strength speeds? And while you’re mulling that one over, remember that Matthew might not be it for this year. DEMOCRATS From page 11A what their contributions have been and what challenges they face. If Trump and his team can brag of results, if his actions are perceived as “making American great again,” then incumbent Democrats may be in trouble. Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, also on the ballot, has described Democrats in the Senate as the “emergency brake” on Trump’s policy proposals. I expect the Democrats to vocally take Trump and his team on when they revert to the racist rhetoric and proposed racist, misogynistic, and jingoistic policies that Trump promoted during the campaign, but will they? They may not want to be perceived as obstructionists (though Republicans surely didn’t mind being obstructionists with President Obama), and they will certainly need to pick their battles carefully, but they must speak out. Midterm election turnout is always extremely low – it was just 36 percent in 2014, the lowest level in 70 years. Democrats must start now to educate and encourage people to turn out for the midterm elections. Voting rights organizations must begin now to reverse the voter suppression that kept millions from voting on November 8. If Democrats don’t get busy now, Republicans will, indeed, prevail in 2018. So, let’s stop wringing our hands and moaning. Let’s get busy! Julianne Malveaux is an author and economist. Her latest book “Are We Better Off? Race, Obama and Public Policy” is available via www.amazon.com for booking, wholesale inquiries or for more info visit www.juliannemalveaux.com. MONEY From page 11A groups. How many Blacks go out of their way to patronize Black-owned businesses? African American buying power is over $1 trillion; and yet only two cents of every dollar an African American spends goes to Black-owned businesses.” A Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management study found that a million jobs could be created if Black consumers spent $1 of every $10 at Black-owned stores and other enterprises.” What’s wrong with us, y’all? Worrill, Whitaker, Reed, and others have given us the formula for economic success and, thereby, political success, for many years. We don’t need another foot march, we need –and must have, a Billion Dollar March. Here is our charge: Start right now to redirect $1 billion back to ourselves in 2017, via the example now being shown by The One Million Conscious and Conscientious Black Contributors and Voters. We are buying and promoting a ubiquitous product, one that is consumed worldwide in amounts on par with oil and wheat: Sweet Unity Farms Coffee from Tanzania. To purchase, go to our website at www. iamoneofthemillion.com/products.html. We are also getting our tax returns prepared at Compro Tax Offices. Buy Black products and professional services. If one million of us spend $1,000 per year at Black businesses we will bring our Billion Dollar March to fruition. So, take a load off your feet. Let your dollars do the marching.

PROTECTION From page 11A pending regulations like debt collection, overdraft, payday lending and other small dollar loans. An unprecedented number of consumer and civil rights advocates have clearly and consistently weighed in on these issues. Although public comment may have concluded, final regulations have yet to be announced. Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, who is widely credited for proposing CFPB to President Obama is one of the few who has already spoken up about all that is at risk. A November 15 letter to the President-elect urged him to serve all consumers. “Americans are angry about a federal government that works for the rich and powerful and that leaves everyone else in the dirt,” wrote Senator Warren. Separately and in a recent blog, Warren also wrote, “Let’s be clear about what rebuilding our economy does not mean. It does not mean handing the keys to our economy over to Wall Street so they can run it for themselves. Americans want to hold the big banks accountable.” And as a consumer, if you’re wondering ‘what you have to lose’ when it comes to CFPB, consider these recent data points on Bureau achievements: • $3.6 billion in monetary compensation to consumers as a result of enforcement actions; • $7.7 billion in additional in principal reductions, cancelled debts, and other consumer relief; • 1,000,000 complaints handled as of September 1, 2016; and • 3,400 colleges voluntarily adopting the CFPB and Department of Education’s Financial Aid Shopping Sheet. “Any efforts to change CFPB’s structure would reduce its effectiveness and harm hard working people across the country,” noted Mike Calhoun, president of the Center for Responsible Lending. I would add that consumers who have been financially harmed are more interested in justice than in deliberation or special exemptions for favored industries.

VCPWA From page 15A vegetated swale, to reduce urban runoff pollutant loading to the Happy Valley Drain, a tributary of the Ventura River. Located in Ojai Valley Land Conservancy’s Ojai Meadows Preserve, the bioswale was installed in order to meet State water quality objectives, but also to provide a safe habitat for wildlife in the native plants included in the design. The project blends elements of engineering and natural biological processes to remove a variety of pollutants from urban stormwater runoff while supporting natural habitats. The improvement will benefit aquatic life and recreational users by reducing high nitrogen levels which can cause excessive algae growth and deplete oxygen in the water. The stormwater catchment area covers about 40 percent of the urban area of Meiners Oaks. “It is a great honor for our work in the Meiners Oaks community to be recognized,” said Mutkowska. “The project represents the future of urban stormwater management, and we look forward to applying these strategies and techniques to forthcoming county projects.” ALMA From page 15A My prayer for Kanye to a sister circle of saints, a consecrated collection of comforters who will — call on the Name, guiding him back to his roots, the place where his mama would go when she needed to hear a word…Can I get a Amen?! If I had the chance, I’d say to Kanye, “Sometimes you need a chitchat, a conversation from somebody who knows you by your ole’ school nickname not your gangster Grammy game.” Along with prayer, he needs professional help, ain’t nothing wrong with that. A professional will guide him out of the hallway of pain and blame, towards a classroom to reconcile, replenish and educate himself on how to live without his loving mother. Understandably, he won’t want to attend this course, but it is undeniably a lesson on heartbreak that he can’t afford to skip.

Turkey & Stuffing for Two

You don’t have to skip the traditional Christmas dinner if it’s just the two of you. In fact, you may not want to wait for a special occasion to have this satisfying mini celebration. Active time: 40 minutes Total time: 1 hours Servings: 2 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil, divided 2 teaspoons butter, divided 1 small shallot, chopped 1 stalk celery, chopped 1/2 teaspoon dried rubbed sage 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme 2 3- to 4-ounce skin less turkey breast cutlets 1 day-old low-fat corn muffin, (5-6 ounces), crumbled, or 4 slices stale whole-wheat bread, crusts removed, torn into bite-size pieces 2 tablespoons plus 1/4 cup reduced-sodium

chicken broth 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 1/4 cup dry vermouth, or dry white wine 1. Preheat oven to 375°F. 2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add shallot and celery; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 2 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl, stir in sage and thyme; let cool for 5 minutes. 3. Meanwhile, place cutlets between sheets of plastic wrap and pound with the smooth side of a meat mallet or a heavy skillet until 8 to 10 inches wide and less than 1/4 inch thick. Be careful not to tear the meat. Remove the top sheet. 4. Add muffin crumbles (or bread) to the celery mixture. Stir in 2 tablespoons broth, salt and pepper.

string. Repeat with the remaining stuffing and the second cutlet. 5. Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter in a medium ovenproof skillet over medium heat. When the butter melts, add the turkey rolls and brown on all sides, turning occasionally, about 4 minutes. 6. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until the turkey is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Transfer the rolls to a serving plate; tent with foil to keep warm. 7. Return the skillet to medium-high heat (take care, the handle will still be hot); add vermouth (or wine). Cook until dark and almost completely evaporated, scraping up any browned bits, about 2 minutes. Add the remaining 1/4 cup broth; cook for 1 minute, just to reduce slightly. Remove the string from the turkey; cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices, if desired, and spoon half the sauce over each portion. Serve warm. Make Ahead Tip: Prepare turkey rolls through Step 4, cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.

U.S. DOE and HHS Award $247.4 million in Preschool Grants to 18 States

From page 5A “High-quality early education gives children the strong start they need to succeed in kindergarten,” said U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King Jr. “The Obama Administration has made great progress in providing access to high-quality early learning, but we must do more. All of our children—regardless of socioeconomic status, race, language spoken at home, disability or zip code—deserve the kind of high-quality early learning opportunities that will prepare them to thrive in school and beyond.” Today, the Department also released a national report and 18 state progress reports on the PDG program. The reports detail how states are meeting the highquality standards and improving access to early learning for at-risk children. Classrooms improved by supporting well-qualified and compensated teachers, expanding to full-day, reducing class size or child-teacher ratios, providing evidence-based professional development, and providing comprehensive services. Last school year, more than 28,000 children from lowincome families had access to high-quality early learning because of the Preschool Development Grants program. This academic year, another 35,000 had the chance to enroll in these programs. With the support of Preschool Development Grants, states have demonstrated a strong commitment to closing equity gaps and expanding opportunities so that all children have a chance to succeed. States met nearly 90 percent of their targets for the number of children served. Six states—Alabama, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Virginia—met or substantially exceeded their targets, reaching 1,387 more children than planned. In their applications, states committed to provide in-

clusive opportunities for children with disabilities. Across all of the grantees, of the 28,202 children served, 2,391 (8.5 percent) were children with disabilities, which is above the national average of 4-year-old children with disabilities in the United States (6.4 percent). High-quality preschool helps create the foundation for children to thrive in school and in life. Studies show that children who participate in quality preschool programs are more likely to graduate from high school, grow up healthy, avoid involvement in our criminal justice system, and find good jobs. The Obama Administration has made expanding high-quality early education a priority. In addition to Preschool Development Grants, the Administration’s more than $1 billion investment in the Race to the Top-Early Learning Challenge Grants across 20 states has resulted in hundreds of thousands more children—particularly those with high-needs and from low-income families—being enrolled in high-quality, state-

funded preschool and other early learning programs than there were in 2011. And nearly 70,000 more early learning programs in the Early Learning Challenge states now participate in quality rating systems to enhance their programs, with more than 21,000 now rated highest in quality—more than double the number five years ago. A new preschool program is included in the nation’s new education law, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which also for the first time includes provisions to promote coordination in early learning among local communities; align preschool with early elementary school; and build the capacity of teachers, leaders, and others serving young children to provide the highest-quality early learning opportunities. Expanding access to highquality early education is among the smartest investments that we can make as a country. President Obama’s 2017 budget proposal includes expanding high-quality preschool through programs through the following proposals: • $75 billion over 10 years for the Preschool for All proposal to provide voluntary, universal high-quality preschool programs for all 4-year-olds from low- and moderate-income families. • $350 million for Preschool Development Grants, an increase of $100 million over the FY 2016 funding level, to help states lay the foundation for universal public preschool. • An additional $82 billion over 10 years for the Child Care and Development Fund to provide high-quality child care for all low- and middle-income families with young children. • $434 million in additional funding for the Head Start program to increase the duration of Head Start services and maintain program quality and enrollment.
