Nashville Pastor Seeking NBCA Presidency By Ronald W. Weathersby

Pastor George Brooks

NASHVILLE, TN — Pastor George Brooks of Nashville’s Saint James Missionary Baptist Church is actively seeking support in his bid to win an election for president of the National Baptist Convention of America (NBCA). He has pastored the landmark church since June 1984. Brooks says he is uniquely qualified to move the huge organization forward. “I am an organizer of people

and things,” explained Brooks. “I am running for this office to bring greater organization to the NBCA. That has been my greatest asset as pastor, president of the State Conference.” He preached his first sermon in 1977 at the Vine Glenn Missionary Baptist Church in Nashville, Tennessee, where his late father, Dr. W. T. Brooks, served as pastor and served as pastor of the Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, Cross Plains, Tennessee from 1977 until 1984.

Reverend Brooks’ leadership includes serving seven years as president of the Congress of the Missionary Baptist State Convention of Tennessee and president of the same Convention from October 1995 to July 2003. He currently serves as the 4th Vice President of the NBCA. Additionally, he served as the director of Pastoral Studies Field Work and Practical Christian Service at American Baptist College from 1985 to 1988. Brooks Continued on page 11A

Priorities in New Fisk President’s Term Staff Writer

President H. James Williams starts each morning bright and early. He leaves his home before 7 a.m., just in time to catch breakfast in the Fisk University campus cafeteria. It’s not uncommon to see him sitting with students, talking about life, class and what they want and need from their university. Williams prides himself on being down-to-earth, hands-on and always with an open ear. “When I sit, I’m mostly listening. There is a group of students here on campus that is just outstanding,” said Williams. He began his term as the university’s 15th president in February after President Hazel O’Leary retired from her post last year. He says he is responsible for students and their academics first. In fact, his first official meeting as president of the university was with the president of the Student Government Association. Shortly after, he attended a town hall meeting hosted by the S.G.A. There was another critical town hall meeting he would later attend and host in the campus chapel. It was a somewhat somber meeting in which he shared with faculty and staff the truth about the financial status of the univer-

Affordable Housing Resources Ranks 7th NASHVILLE, TN — Affordable Housing Resources, Inc., which serves Middle Tennessee, is the seventh most effective organization in the nation at preserving homeownership according to a just-released national ranking.

IRS Offers Tips For Taxpayers Who Missed Deadline

The IRS has some advice for taxpayers who missed the tax filing deadline. File as soon as possible. If you owe federal income tax, you should file and pay as soon as you can to minimize any penalty and interest charges. There is no penalty for filing a late return if you are due a refund. Penalties and interest may be due. If you missed the April 15 deadline, you may have to pay penalties and interest. The IRS may charge penalties for late filing and for late payment. The law generally does not al-

low a waiver of interest charges. However, the IRS will consider a reduction of these penalties if you can show a reasonable cause for being late. E-file is your best option. IRS e-file programs are available through Oct. 15. E-file is the easiest, safest and most accurate way to file. With e-file, you will receive confirmation that the IRS has received your tax return. If you e-file and are due a refund, the IRS will normally issue it within 21 days. Free File is still available. Everyone can use IRS

Free File. If your income is $57,000 or less, you qualify to e-file your return using free brand-name software. If you made more than $57,000 and are comfortable preparing your own tax return, use Free File Fillable Forms to e-file. This program uses the electronic versions of paper IRS forms. IRS Free File is available only through IRS.gov. Pay as much as you can. If you owe tax but can’t pay it all at once, you should pay as much as you can when you file your tax return. Pay the remaining balance due as soon as possible to minimize penalties and interest charges. Installment Agreements are available.

LETTERS TO EDITOR Dear Editor: The only thing wrong with the government’s calculation of available social security is they forgot to figure in the people who died before they ever collected a social security check!!! WHERE DID THAT MONEY GO? Remember, not only did you and I contribute to Social Security but your employer did, too. It totaled 15% of your income before taxes. If you averaged only $30K over your working life, that’s close to $220,500. Read that again. Did you see where the Government paid in one single penny? We are talking about the money you and your employer put in a Government bank to insure you and I that we would have a retirement check from the money we put in, not the Government. Now they are calling the money we put in an entitlement when we reach the age to take it back. If you calculate the future invested value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer’s contribution) at a simple 5% interest (less than what the govt. pays on the money that it borrows), after 49 years of working you’d have $892,919.98. If you took out only 3% per year, you’d receive $26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years (until you’re 95 if you retire at age 65) and that’s with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit! If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you’d have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month. Another thing with me.... I have two deceased husbands who died in their 50’s, (one was 51 and the other one was 59 before one percent of their social security could be drawn. I worked all my life and am drawing 100% on my own social security). Their S.S. money will never have one cent drawn from what they paid into S.S. all their lives. The folks in Washington have pulled

off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madoff ever did. Entitlement my foot, I paid cash for my social security insurance! Just because they borrowed the money for other government spending, doesn’t make my benefits some kind of charity or handout!! Remember Congressional benefits? --- free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days. Now that’s welfare, and they have the nerve to call my social security retirement payments entitlements? We’re “broke” and we can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, or Homeless. Yet in the last few months we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile and Turkey. And now Pakistan......home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!! And they can’t help our own citizens in New York and New Jersey! Our retired seniors living on a ‘fixed S.S. income’ receive no additional federal aid nor do they get any financial breaks, while our government and religious organizations pour hundreds of billions of $$ and tons of food to foreign countries! They call Social Security and Medicare an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives, and now, when it’s time for us to collect, the government is running out of money. Why did the government borrow from it in the first place? It was supposed to be in a locked box, not part of the general fund. Sad isn’t it? 99% of people won’t have the guts to share this. I’m in the 1% -- I just did. Sincerely, Joyce Bristow, USA

Hefner TSU Performing Arts Center, with winners announced at 1 p.m. “While there are a few other competitions with close ties to an HBCU, ours is the only one that is exclusively for currently enrolled undergraduate students under the age of 25 at an HBCU,” said Dr. Christine M. Perkey, Associate Professor of Music and Hefner competition coordinator. “One of the most interesting and unique aspects of the competition that we are most proud of is our incentive to learn and promote piano music by black composers.” Schools sending contestants to this year’s prestigious competition include Elizabeth City State University, Lincoln University of Missouri, South Carolina State University, Wiley College, and Tennessee State University. Judges for the competition include Amanda Virelles and Karen Ann Krieger. Virelles is a brilliant and energetic piano soloist and collaborative artist who has performed throughout the United States, France, Russia, South America and Cuba. She earned a doctoral degree in piano performance and pedagogy from the University of Southern Mississippi, and currently serves on the faculty of both Belmont and Vanderbilt University. Krieger is an extremely versatile pianist, composer, author, journalist, clinician, and teacher. Originally from

along with $250 cash prize. “The award for ‘Best Performance by a Black Composer’ is a unique feature of TSU’s piano competition,” said Dr. Robert Elliot, Professor and head of the Department of Music. “We host an ever-growing list of these piano works on our website and have come to be known as the clearing of these works. Piano teachers at other universities regularly consult this list in researching repertoire for their students.” Now in its ninth year, the Hefner Piano Competition was created by Dr. James A. Hefner, former Tennessee State University president who had the vision of providing a national piano competition for students of HBCUs throughout the country.

Black Veterans Call on Obama to Rename Monument

WASHINGTON, DC — The National Coalition of Black Veterans is pleased to announce the Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers National Monument, in honor of Colonel Charles Young’s exemplary military record and dedication to our country. In recognition of his service, President Barack Obama has declared his home in Wilberforce, Ohio, as a national treasure. Charles Young had a long, distinguished military career. He was the third African-American to graduate from West Point in 1889, and from there he moved up through the ranks. He became a First Lieutenant in 1896, and then in 1898 he was appointed Major in the National Guard. In 1901 he became Captain in the regular army. He was eventually promoted all the way to Colonel in 1917. At the time of his death in 1922, Col. Charles Young was the highest-ranking African-American in the U.S. Armed Forces. Many people feel that if not for racism, Col. Young would have been promoted to Brigadier General. In addition to reaching the esteemed rank of Colonel, Young was also the first black superintendent of public lands, overseeing California’s Sequoia National Park. He was also on the faculty at Wilberforce University, Ohio, as a professor of Military Science. His imprint on American history cannot be disputed and we are delighted that the President has bestowed this honor. The United States military was segregated until 1948, and the term “Buffalo Soldier” first emerged during the period

of the Western Expansion to refer to African Americans serving their country. By bestowing Col. Young and his descendants with this honor, the President has made an important first step in providing recognition of an often-overlooked segment of American History—the era of the Buffalo Soldier. In that spirit, the National Coalition of Black Veterans would like to correct the omission of Charles Young’s military rank from the title of the new National Monument. Instead of calling it the Charles Young Buffalo Soldier National Monument, we are requesting that it be titled “The Brigadier General Charles Young Buffalo Soldier National Monument.” “The oversight in the title is glaring,” says Coalition Chair, Charles Blatcher. “Charles Young’s life was the military. By omitting his rank from the National Monument, he is dis-associated from one of the most important parts of his life and the pride of his service.” The Coalition has brought the oversight to the attention of President Obama, and has respectfully asked that he include the rank of Brigadier General before Charles Young’s name on the monument’s title. He is entitled in death to carry the military title he earned in life. “It’ll be a great day if he receives this well-deserved promotion,” said Renotta Young, who is related to the Colonel on her grandfather’s side. We have asked the President to consider granting this honorary promotion for Charles Young to Brigadier General in June. The coalition is planning a commemorative ceremony to honor the Colonel at Arlington National Cemetery on June 5th, 2013. Finally, we would like to thank the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. for graciously allowing their property to be designated as a National Monument. We commend them for being the thoughtful caretakers of Col. Young’s home for many years and for their ultimate display of wisdom in donating the holdings to the National Park Services.

BLAIR UNDERWOOD Actor Adds Flair to New Spring Clothing Line

B. UNDERWOOD: “I feel very strongly about being involved. I’m not one of those guys who lends his name No matter what the role may be, or the occasion, ac- to something and then just walk away. This has been a tor Blair Underwood is always dressed and looking his great collaborative effort. I’m very involved with K & G dapper best. For spring/summer 2013 Blair has now officially launched his BU Collection Spring 2013 clothing line only at K&G Fashion Superstores. Blair’s new spring line will expand his current collection to include everything from tailored suits, suit separates and cufflinks to casual items such as sweaters, polos, and hats – all at affordable prices. In 2011, Blair Underwood launched his BU Collection, a line of men’s tailored suits, shirts, and ties for sale exclusively at K&G stores. Last year Blair became the brand’s official spokesperson. Here the multi-talented actor shares details about his new clothing line and tips on how he remains as one of entertainment’s most debonair and stylish names. TRIBUNE: Tell us more about your new collection for K & G Superstores. B . U N D E RWO O D : “I’m very excited about this Left, Actor Blair Underwood sports one of his year’s BU COLLECTION, fashionably casual outfits from his new BU collection that’s housed exclusively under the K & G Fashion Superstores, which is owned by the Men’s WearHouse. We launched the line in 2011 but at that time we only had dress shirts, ties and cuff links. Superstores but at the same time I’m also aware of what (www.kgstores.com) Customers gave us a huge response my strengths and weaknesses are too. This whole fashion to the new line. So for 2013 we now have an expanded world is rather new for me. This is also a learning experiline that includes casual spring time wear too. Customers ence for me too. The Men’s WearHouse is a very successcan now find jeans, shirts, cuff links, ties, hats, leather ful company brand with quality clothing that’s affordable belts, and shoes…the theme behind this line is ‘Be the for the working person. In my line of work I know what it’s like to wear a two or three thousand dollar suit. So I authentic you.’ TRIBUNE: How hands-on are you with this apparel figure why not have the same type of quality suit at an line? Do you offer suggestions to the designers, go to the affordable price for the working man? And that’s what various Fashion Week events in different cities or what? we’ve done here with K & G/Men’s WearHouse.” By Janice Malone

TRIBUNE: This probably sounds silly but for many years I thought that George Zimmer (Men’s WearHouse), was an actor. I didn’t know that he’s actually the real founder of the company. B. UNDERWOOD: “Don’t laugh but I thought the same thing too! He’s done an amazing job of building an empire of that brand too.” TRIBUNE: You’ve been such a consistent successful actor in so many areas of entertainment but yet you also have the looks to be a model. Was modeling ever a considered, earlier in your career? B. UNDERWOOD: “My brother used to call me scar face when we were growing up because I had these acne scars all over my face. When I first started acting in 1985, no one would hire me. I couldn’t get any acting jobs. So one day I decided to try this modeling thing. I gave it a shot for two days. And each day the agencies told me that I had too many scars on my face. I was quite discouraged but then I just reminded myself that I was going to do what I was trained to do and that’s to be an actor and that’s what I did.” TRIBUNE: What advice do you give to the guy out there who’s totally fashion challenged? B. UNDERWOOD: “The first thing he needs to do is decide he’s going to get outfits from the new BU Collection. And after that just ask for help from one of the friendly customer service people in one of the K & G Menswear stores. They’re very knowledgeable about style, how to mix and match the right colors and sizes. My new BU Collection has very traditional lines and cuts, but with a little flavor that gives it a little flash or a little color but it’s still traditional enough too. I’m a big fan of having things subtle but still elegant when it comes to style.” TRIBUNE: In addition to the new line of menswear, what can we expect to see from you in television or film? B. UNDERWOOD: “I’m sure a lot of people will remember the old TV series Ironside, starring Raymond Burr. He starred as a paralyzed police detective who was in a wheel chair. It was a hit show back in late sixties, early seventies. I’m due to shoot a pilot to star in the leading role for a new updated Ironside. This new version will also focus on his life before he became paralyzed too. So after the pilot is done we’ll all sit back and hope that it gets picked by one of the networks.”

WITH THE BACHELOR’S SEAN LOWE

Among the shining stars at this year’s Southern Women’s Show event was one of reality TV’s most eligible men Sean Lowe, from the popular shows The Bachelor, The Bachelorette and now Dancing With The Stars (DWTS). Earlier this week Sean and his dancing partner Peta Murgatroyd, danced up a storm to Stevie Wonder’s “I Wish” on DWTS, which included Sean ripping off his shirt to show those pecs! After falling for Emily Maynard last season on The Bachelorette, the Texas native knows the time is right for him to make the ultimate commitment to the right woman. The Ms. Right for Sean is now his beautiful new fiancé Catherine Giudici. The two have been photographed all over L.A., the social media, and everywhere, as Hollywood’s most adorable new couple. Even though Sean is now officially off the eligible bachelor’s list, he was still a big fan favorite among the ladies during his Nashville visit. Even though he was quite busy while in town, he did give us 5 answers to 5 questions. MOST STRESSFUL--THE BACHELOR OR DANCING WITH THE STARS? “They’re both stressful in different ways. The Bachelor show is emotionally stressful and Dancing With the Stars is physically stressful. With Dancing, I’m constantly worried about messing up my steps. So I guess I need to find a show that doesn’t have any stress!” (LoL) THE SHOW THAT’S CHANGED HIS LIFE THE MOST? “Definitely The Bachelor for two reasons: one, it propelled me into the opportunity to be on Dancing With The Stars and secondly, I met the love of my life, Catherine, and we couldn’t be more hap-

pier. All of this fame and attention I’m now getting will eventually fade away but Catherine and I will be together for the rest of our lives after we’re married. HIS DECISION TO REMAIN CHASTE UNTIL AFTER HE GETS MARRIED “I haven’t always lived my life the way that I’m living it now. But that was a decision I made once I got older and my Christian faith matured. I was tired of living a selfish life. I want to live my life in a way that is pleasing to God. So that’s what I’m doing now. Of course it’s not always easy… I’ve received a ton of positive support from people about this decision, which I really do appreciate.” STAYING IN TOUCH WITH FORMER

CAST MATES FROM THE BACHELOR OR BACHELORETTE SHOWS? “I do remain in contact with several of the former cast members. We became good friends during the shows. It was a lot of fun, sort of like a big frat house. ..But no contact with Tierra LiCausi. (former contestant Sean sent packing from The Bachelor show).” In fact, I’ve had no contact with any of the ladies

from the show. No, Tierra wasn’t the right girl for me, even though it took me a minute to figure it out. INSIGHT ON HIS UPCOMING WEDDING? “Right now we really don’t know exactly what theme the wedding will have because Dancing With The Stars has kept me so busy. After that show is over we’ll sit down to start planning everything out.”

RYCH’S CORNER Philip Martin Shines Brightly in ‘Phil Spector’

KAM’S KOLUMN The Mother Diaries

By Rych McCain, twitter@rychmccain and Facebook www.rychmccainhollyhoodnotes.blogspot.com www.rychmccainreviewwagon.blogspot.com

Fresh faces arriving in Hollywood is a common occurrence. Among those faces there is fear and uncertainty mixed with hope and optimism that stardom is destined ahead for them. And even though the unfortunate fate of reality enters the scene to separate the “will be’s” from the “wanna-be’s,” every now and then a new personality appears where after careful examination, there is clearly no doubt! Actor Philip Martin is a fresh new talent that is without question on his way. Martin has sharpened his craft via study and training in San Francisco, L.A. and New York City. A perfect example of his professionalism is the fact that after having worked with renowned Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, screenwriter and director David Mamet at his award winning Atlantic Theatre Company in New York City, Mamet pinned a script for the recent HBO TV film “Phil Spector” starring Al Pacino, Helen Mirren and Jeffrey Tambor. The good news for Philip Martin is that Mr. Mamet wrote a part especially for him. The role was that of “James Lee,” a member of Spector’s (Al Pacino) defense team during his murder trial in 2007. When looking at the Phil Spector story and his role in that movie, what did he think about the man and the trial? Martin reflects, “I know specifically with me and talking with David (scriptwriter); what he said, he really enjoyed the mythological possibilities of the character of Phil Spector and really explores that thought. So when I got the role and I learned that I was Bruce Cutler’s protégé, knowing what Bruce did with John Gotti and all that stuff, it really helped me understand that there are a lot of par-

Philip Martin stars as “James Lee” in new HBO film PHIL SPECTOR Kam Williams

allels between being a lawyer and an actor. Both require the dedication and the commitment it takes to really understand how language and wording play a big deal in cases. In terms of the entire Phil Spector phenomenon, was Martin familiar with Spector’s career? He says, “Before the movie, I knew of his name but I didn’t know the specifics of who he was and what his work was. I really had a very small idea. But as I did my research, I got more of an understanding of his influence in music. He produced one of my favorites, the ‘Let It Be’ album and songs like ‘Imagine.’ I really started to understood that this character was a big part of our American culture, whether most people realize it or not.” This project gave Martin the opportunity to work with a true master/legend in the person of Al Pacino. How does he describe the experience? Martin chuckles, “Being on set with Al, I’ve seen the literal energy and craftsmanship. He’s very dedicated and he was always the same with the energy of his character. It inspired me as a young actor to continue to develop my craft and to really dig into my heart and soul the way that Al does for every role. It taught me that I have a lot more work to do but it’s possible.”

TERRI’S REVIEW ‘Decadence’

She was used to being naked in front of others and she wasn’t afraid to describe her fantasies. She wanted new experiences, club rules were simple, and very little was off-limits. On her first visit, she turned from Watcher to Doer. Decadence was a lover’s playground and she wished she could bring Prada with her, though she knew he’d never share her. And since monogamy was boring, sharing was what Nia Simone really desired. But while Decadence was everything she needed it to be, it wasn’t as anonymous Terri Schlichenmeyer as she’d hoped.

Book Review by Kam Williams

“Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve kept a diary… Instead of writing out all the shenanigans of my life on paper, I [now] share them with five thousand of my closest friends on Facebook… As the mother of wonderful, precious children, ages 13, 10 and 5, I think I’ve got this motherhood thing down, so I have some stuff worth sharing… On social media, I got immediate reaction from my updates on my never-adull-minute life… It was from reading some encouraging words on Facebook and Twitter that I came up with the idea for this book… The Motherhood Diaries is all about exploring the good, the bad, and the ugly side of my motherhood path… It’s for women who complain, fuss and rant about their kids but will go Mama Tiger crazy if you mess with one of their babies.” -- Excerpted from Introduction (pages ix-xi)

A Humorous Look at Motherhood in the New Millennium, by ReShonda Tate Billingsley, Strebor Books, Paperback, $15.00, 220 pages, ISBN: 978-1-59309-499-7

New Millennium,” the author gives the subject-matter a light touch in a folksy fashion which has this critic thinking of her as the black Erma Bombeck, if that name means anything to you. Each chapter opens with a comical quote from a journal entry, like “My 4 year-old needs a muzzle” and “Why is it I’ve turned into a lush?” followed by an elaboration of the incident that prompted ReShonda to have that thought. Between being blessed with the knack for narrating an anecdote and a comedienne’s gift for making observational insights about everyday occurrences, she’s a natural for weaving a winning memoir. This is an age where many career While the first half of the timely women find themselves frustrated in tome is comprised exclusively of Rethe attempt to balance motherhood and Shonda’s pithily-delivered pearls of work.

that the past is better than the future that God his for us. We sometimes want to shrink away from our Christian witness like Peter (Matthew 26:34) even though God promised to never leave us or forsake us. Undoubtedly, it takes mental and physical tenacity, which is strength or toughness, to success in our personal and professional lives. However, I’ve also found that it takes “spiritual tenacity” to success in our spiritual lives. For example, Job continued to worship God even in difficult times (Job 2:20). Lot obeyed the Lord even though he lost part of his family and his home (Genesis 19). The devil prevented the Apostle Paul from preaching the gospel on one occasion (1 Thessalonians 2:18); however, because of his tenaciousness, Paul became one of the greatest

preachers and teachers of the gospel message throughout salvation history. Every good and perfect gift comes from God (James 1:17). We will receive some blessings with relatively little effort on our part. However, the biblical record also maintains that we will have to work diligently and incessantly to receive some of the God’s blessing. Challenges, temptations and sin will confront us and affect us, but we must remain steadfast and unmovable (1 Corinthians 15:58). We must be tenacious, and “refuse to loose” our Christian spirituality, dignity, faith, calling and divine destiny when difficult times come our way. Remember, we can do all things to Christ who strengthens us (Philippians 4:13).

God Loves You

To that person or person out there and you feel as though there is no hope, you feel as though no one cares about you, you feel as though people don’t understand you, today I tell you Jesus can give you hope, Jesus cares about you, Jesus understands Elder “X” Lawson you, and Jesus loves you! God sent Jesus to show us how to live, to show us how to act and to show us how we should love one another. The sacrifice Jesus made on the cross by dyeing was a selfless act of love for you and for me. It gets even better; God raised Jesus from the dead to show us that we can put our trust in Jesus and believe not only in Jesus but also in God himself. Without Jesus we would be lost, we would not

understand how to pray, we would pray ritualistically with very little understanding or connection to God, without Jesus we would not be able to work miracles for the glory of God, without Jesus we also would not have the opportunity to have everlasting life. We are imperfect people who by faith in the perfect “will” of God can “pursue perfection” in an imperfect world through Jesus Christ. I’m reminded of the words of an old gospel song by James Cleveland called “I don’t feel no ways tired” some of the words go, “nobody told me, that the road would be easy, I don’t believe, he brought me this far, to leave me!” We are reminded in Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” However have you, yes you, have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? Walk out on faith, Romans 10:9-10 say’s, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. “ For with the heart man believeth

unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” Right now I pray Father God that you protect those who are weak, give sight to those who are yet blind and convert those who are lost. Lord I ask that you bring peace to every chaotic situation that your children are in need of, step in, show up and show out. Lord I believe in you and I believe in your power, I ask you right now in the name of your son Jesus Christ to manifest your Holy Spirit to those who need that extra push to get off the fence giving them an opportunity to see your loving heart. Please reach them at their jobs, schools, buses, homes, in the booth in the corner in the back where ever they need you and are calling on you Father God, please hear your children and bless them.

Do you really know who you are? Everyday Joy by Regina Prude

Regina M. Prude

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 2 Corinthians 4:7 (KJV) Here’s a bold statement: you are not who you think you are. I am struck by this fact—many of us don’t know our own worth. PBS’s documentary, “Who Do You Think You Are? With Henry Louis Gates,” highlights celebrities whose background is traced, as cameras follow. I spoke with a creator of that series and expressed how I appreciated their perspective on heritage. I’ve been thinking about having the DNA test that breaks down ethnicity, even geographically. What part of

Africa were my ancestors from? I’ve always heard that my maternal grandfather (he died the year I was born) was Native American…true? Bigger than the mystery of ancestry is the awesome truth of how valuable we are to God. He bought us, paid for us, bankrupt Heaven…giving up His beloved Son…to buy us back to Himself. In the art world, a Picasso or Jacob Lawrence is valued based on what someone last paid for a similar piece. The great God of the universe values you so highly that He paid an incredible price. I sat in the window of a fast food restaurant in Ft. Campbell, Kentucky, waiting for an appointment to begin. I was struck by the reality of who these young people are who serve our military. Ft. Campbell is one of the world’s largest Army installations. It was lunch time. The restaurant quickly filled with fresh-faced, fatigueclad men and women. Should I have been surprised at how they looked like my grandchildren? Almost aloud I said, “These are our children! We send them around the world to fight for us, and they have only been in the world two decades.”

With that vivid picture still so fresh, a few days ago, the Defense Department announced statistics on military suicides. They now cap one a day, a record high. Are these youthful soldiers returning from combat and giving up on life? Why? Perhaps it’s because no one told them who they really are. You matter to God! The One who created you wants you to claim the power of your identity and enjoy life…completely. You were meant to know God, upclose and personally, serve Him by doing the work you’re created for, be joyful every day, and enjoy Him forever after this life. So, go do that. © Regina M.

Forum Brings Out Large Crowd in North Nashville Staff Writer

Nearly 200 North Nashville residents filled the North Nashville police precinct recently to get updates on projects and plans for the mostly African American part of the city. The forum, organized and hosted by a conglomeration of 13 North Nashville neighborhood associations, fired off questions to elected officials that are responsible for zones included in the area. The questions were pulled from each of the neighborhood groups. Most of the discussion centered on building the community’s economy, fair education and preventing crime. “What mattered to me most was economic development and us not having enough restaurants, not having enough family centers,” said Gina Coleman who has lived in Bordeaux for 31 years. “Metrocenter is booming. When you drive through, you can see how it’s booming. You’ve got the Lexus dealership, the state government buildings over there. But my main concern is when you get to Clarksville Highway and Buena Vista Pike and you go all the way to Briley Parkway, there is nothing. It’s stagnant. It’s dead. We need to do something to get it hopping, popping and moving.” Councilman Lonnell Matthews, Jr, shared updates on the housing development that is coming in behind the Kroger on Clarksville Hwy. Sixty-six units, a mixture of condos, townhomes and duplexes, are being developed in that area. The community will be called Hallmark Station. A dollar store is also said to be moving in across from the Kroger in the place where Old Timers restaurant once sat. Councilwoman Edith Taylor Langster, District 21, said that’s not the only corner of North Nashville seeing growth. “We have one of the city’s highest economic packages. If you noticed, we have a brand new fire hall on D.B. Todd Blvd. Then we have the success of the 28th Ave Connector. That corridor has

proven great for us. It’s bringing business back to North Nashville. People are reinvesting in the community,” said Langster. The forum, hosted by award-winning journalist Dwight Lewis, then moved to education. School Board representative Sharon Gentry, who is assigned to the Councilman Lonnell Matthews Jr, Councilwoman Edith Taylor District 1 area, said she Langston and Sgt.

My kids wouldn’t know anything about it. So we have to be aware of these things. We have to be more involved. We have to be more informed,” said Brown. Tonya Sherrell-Boyd, forum organizer and member of the North Nash Neighborhood Association said Brown and others can expect to see more and hear more from the neighborhood groups. This is the second forum hosted by the super neighborhood association group. The first was a community discussion during the last round of elections in August. They invited candidates whose positions would impact the North Nashville community. That one, like this most recent forum, left standing room only in the police precinct’s community room. She said the NNNA is very engaged and active and planning to host the forums at least once a year. “We have been extremely pleased and grateful with the turnout, layout, format and flow. The turnout for both this political forum and last year’s was unprecedented – especially for North Nashville. The diversity of the audience - socially, professionally, economically and racially was a beautiful blend and definitely something unique for public meetings. We hope people walk away with substance that will help them better understand the role of politics and the impact it has on us as individuals and the community as a whole,” said Sherrell-Boyd. She says while they have focused on the political-focused forums, it takes more than just those elected to make a change. “Although politics play an important role, community revitalization starts with the people who live here and engaging them in the internal and external process is a priority for us.

Nonprofit Partnerships: Dollars and Sense Woman and minority owned businesses can benefit from well-defined relationships with select nonprofits. Partnering with nonprofits makes good business sense for emerging and established woman or minority-owned businesses. Board service puts a human face on your business; donating goods and services extends your brand. Creating a culture of philanthropy helps your business better compete for welleducated potential employees seeking a meaningful career and the opportunity to give back. Building a brand that communicates “we” instead of “me” opens the door to new networks and relationships that can help you meet your business objectives. Other benefits include increased exposure to people of different cultures, races, ethnicities, geographic areas and professions; and learning from diverse leaders in a most intimate setting: that of a nonprofit grappling with management, marketing, or budgetary issues. People who are involved with nonprofits are civic-minded people who are willing to open doors for others, and to extend their network. They will have the opportunity work with you, get to know you, and refer your business. You can extend similar opportunities. Be strategic about your involvement. Engage with nonprofits that impact or are supported by your customer/client base, and the community you operate in. Customers and clients are more loyal to businesses that engage with nonprofits they believe in. Find out which nonprofits resonate with your clients/customers; look for those with similar values; evaluate how they could help you meet your business objectives. Interview the leadership of potential partners to learn their expectations of your business, and the opportunities they could provide. Done right, nonprofit service, sponsorship, and

Make the selection in collaboration with your leadership and employees. Increase your impact with planning and preparation. For example, identify what you want to achieve for your business, the nonprofit and the community. Determine how much money and time will you invest annually. Where will the money come from?

ary, doesn’t buy the “baseball is dead” rhetoric in the Black community, at least among the young people she knows and loves. Nashville’s RBI has multiple teams in both the younger (3-12) and older (13-18) designations, and more than 324 young people have participated this season in the 12 and under games. “I haven’t found that we can’t interest children in playing baseball,” HIllard said during an interview. “Our problems and challenges extend into other areas. “Field availability is a major problem for the older youngsters. There just aren’t that many places in a lot of the neighborhoods where our older kids live where they can have games. Transportation is another challenge.” “But I would say that one thing we always need are volunteers, adults who love both children and baseball and are willing to give us their time. We’re not looking for former major or minor leaguers, just people who have some knowledge of the game and are willing to spend the time teaching and helping our youngsters.” Hillard got involved with RBI due to her own love of baseball, which she says came from a grandfather. Both her children have participated in RBI, and she considers it a wonderful way to teach such values as sportsmanship, consideration for others, cooperation in a joint venture and pulling together for a common goal. Nashville RBI’s mission is to use baseball and softball to provide inner city youth with opportunities to play, to learn and to grow, inspiring them to recognize their potential and realize their dreams. RBI’s impact isn’t limited just to onthe-field. They also help participants learn life skills through Quick SMART!, a program developed by The Boys and Girls Clubs of America. It address numerous issues, among them alcohol, tobacco and drug abuse, HIV/AIDS prevention and education for 13 to 18-year olds. Each chapter has a community version of “Breaking Barriers: In Sports, In Life,” an inspirational and training regimen based on the values demonstrated by Jackie Robinson. This is designed to provide RBI’s members with traits and values necessary to handle obstacles later in life.

Nashville RBI began in 1996 thanks to a grant from Major League baseball. The chapter is now operated as a program of the YMCA of Middle Tennessee. There are more than 900 boys and girls who are involved on both baseball and softball. The National organization was founded by major leaguer John Young in South Central Los Angeles during 1989. Major League Baseball assumed its administration in 1991. Though MLB made initial start-up grants to various RBI programs both domestically and nationally, today each chapter is responsible for raising its own funds. Hillard estimates that about 60 percent of RBI’s current players are AfricanAmerican. The players in the 3-12 age group have games at Seven Oaks Park. The 13-18 teams play there when possible, as well as at Pitts Park, but field availability is sometimes a problem with older teams. RBI takes great care in terms of ensuring that volunteers have a positive attitude towards the players. “Our volunteers must be willing to dedicate themselves to the children,” Hillard said. “We do a background check, and they must compete online courses covering child abuse and other areas. We want them to have a basic knowledge of baseball, but we’re also always concerned about attitudes and interaction.” All RBI games are free and open to the public. The 17th annual Nashville RBI Golf Classic at the Hermitage golf course will be held on May 13 at 12 p.m. This is RBI’s primary fundraiser, and Hillard says public involvement is welcome and necessary, as this is the group’s biggest fundraiser of the year. “We encourage people to participate, both in our tournament and also to get involved with RBI,” Hillard concluded. “Our donations have been down somewhat because of the economy, but we’re still getting lots of children who want to play and get involved with the program. So we’re asking those out there who see the positive impact that sports can have on the lives of children to not hesitate to call us if you enjoy baseball and want to help others.” More information on RBI, it’s upcoming tournament and various activities the rest of the year is available at nashvillerbi. com

Mayor Welcomes Artists to Ryman Lofts

NASHVILLE, TN — What began as an idea by Metro leaders and music industry executives was opened recently as Ryman Lofts, Nashville’s first affordable apartment building designed specifically for artists. Mayor Karl Dean, with MDHA, the Music City Music Council and members of the city’s arts community, joined tenants of Ryman Lofts for a grand opening celebration that included a ribbon cutting, along with performances and artwork displays by tenants. Tenants wrote and performed the song “Looks Like We’re Home” for the grand opening. “Part of what makes Nashville known around the world is the incredible creative community we have living and working in our city,” Mayor Dean said. “Nothing inspires a creative mind like bringing it together with other creative minds, and that synergy between smart, talented individuals is exactly what excites me about Ryman Lofts.” The 53,000-square-foot building in Rolling Mill Hill includes 60 studio, 1-bedroom and 3-bedroom apartments. All of the units are currently pre-leased or occupied. Ground was broken on Ryman Lofts in October, 2011, and the building was substantially completed in January, 2013. The idea for Ryman Lofts grew from the Music City Music Council, which recognized that making quality affordable urban housing available to emerging artists can spur small business development, reduce transportation demands and help nurture the city’s creative workforce. Applications were accepted online begin-

ning in October, 2012 and move-ins began in early February of this year. While the majority of residents at Ryman Lofts are musical artists, people in the visual and performance arts also call the building home, including painters, sculptors, actors and photographers among the tenants. Units are available to working and aspiring artists who “practice in the unique creation and public display or performance of visual arts, craft, sound and performance art, film and television, theater, dance, music or literary arts.” In order to qualify for residency at Ryman Lofts, applicants undergo a credit and criminal background check and submit examples of their work along with three letters of reference for a panel of arts experts to review. While it wasn’t

required that the applicants make their living solely from their work, the panel looked for evidence the applicant was pursuing a career in the arts on a “regular and persistent basis.” Applicants must also earn 60% or less of the area median income. Smith-Gee Studios served as the architect for the $7 million project, and R.G. Anderson was the general contractor. Financing for the project was made available through the federal Low Income Housing

Tax Credit program. MDHA worked with City Real Estate Advisors of Boston to market the tax credits, and financing was provided by Fifth Third Bank and First Tennessee Bank. Before construction began, architects held focus groups with representatives of Nashville’s arts community to get input on the type of living space an artist would need. Many of the suggestions which came out of that research were included in the final design, including hard surface flooring and countertops, condo-grade soundproofing between units and “industrial” finishes consistent with the loft look of the building. In addition, the units have large-scale windows to allow the maximum available light and, in some cases, remarkable views of downtown Nashville. The studio, 1-bedroom and 3-bedroom units range in size from 713 to 1,275 square feet and rent for $600 to $853 per month. In addition, the building has gated on-site parking and a secure, buzzer access system. Ryman Lofts was designed to comply with LEED Silver standards, and it is anticipated the application for LEED Silver certification will occur later this year.

NFL DRAFT

Titans First Pick May Be Lineman By Ron Wynn

BY RON WYNN Black Press’ Role Undervalued

There’s been a lot written online and in various newspapers over the past few weeks regarding the pluses and minuses of “42,” the new film documenting the historic 1947 season where Jackie Robinson integrated baseball. But ironically, even among those many who’ve taken the film to task for various historical mistakes and/ or errors, there’s been relatively little written about a major item that gets relatively minor treatment. The character of sportswriter Wendell Smith, expertly portrayed by Andre Holland, is depicted as a combination chauffeur/media tutor/ mentor for Jackie Robinson (also well played by Chadwick Boseman). The film is basically accurate in its depiction from the standpoint Rickey enlisted Smith’s services that season and that the two did develop a relationship that eventually was both professional and personal. But where the film misses the boat is in its implication it was predominantly the mainstream white press who pushed for baseball’s integration. Actually, it was the Black press, working in conjunction with radical publications including left-wing and Communist newspapers, who were the early and most ardent advocates for breaking the color line. Indeed Smith, who comes across in the film as mostly a diplomatic, easy-going soul, was anything but when it came to batting racism, both in the press box and on the field. Smith began stumping for integration as early as 1939, writing in the Pittsburgh Courier that “It (integration) is an issue that big league moguls dodge and neglect whenever the time has come for us to come to our senses and fight against that which we know is unjust.” Smith and other Black writers doubled as defacto talent scouts for MLB. They helped arrange a tryout for Roy Campanella and Dave Barnhill with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1943. That same season Commissioner Kennesaw Mountain Landis had a summit meeting with John Sengstacke, President of the Chicago Defender, Joe Bostic of the (then) New Amsterdam News, Sam Lacy of the Baltimore Afro-American and Smith among others. That meeting exposed the hypocrisy of owners, National League President Ford Frick, and Landis, who all claimed there was no ban. Smith later got a tryout for three Black players with the Boston Red Sox in 1945. But it was a sham and rightly blasted by the players involved. These events were later reported by the mainstream white press, but they were hardly leaders in the fight to integrate baseball. Many major papers, especially in the South, either openly opposed it or ignored the issue until forced to confront it. There’s a great film waiting to be made about the long efforts of Smith, Lacy and numerous others to not only integrate the baseball diamond but the press box. That “42” failed to fully or completely expose that side of the issue doesn’t surprise me. What does is the lack of knowledge and indignation regarding the black press’ treatment among those so eager to attack “42” on other grounds.

The Titans had major problems on both sides of the ball during last season’s dismal 6-10 campaign, but indicators point to them selecting an offensive lineman very high in this year’s NFL draft. A number of draft predictors and services have quoted general manager Ruston Webster saying that improvement on the offensive line was a major priority. Despite signing three new linemen already in free agency, it is very possible that the Titans may pick either Alabama’s Chance Warmack or North Carolina’s Jonathan Cooper as their first selection when the draft begins Thursday. These two are alternating in terms of potential when compared by scouts and services. The advantage for Warmack, who is six feet, two inches and 317 pounds comes in his reputation as a superb run blocker. Given running back Chris Johnson’s prominence in the Titans’ offensive schemes, many figured it was a sure bet that if he were available when it was the Titans’ turn (10th pick), that he would be their choice. But in the last few days, there’s been more support going to Cooper, who is also six feet two and is 311 pounds. He’s deemed more a throwback type, someone ideal for short yardage and very strong at the point of initial attack in the line of scrimmage. He’s also considered to be faster than Warmack, and really good at downfield blocking. However Warmack regularly practiced and played against huge defensive linemen in a 3-4 scheme, something that the Titans value due to playing twice a year against the Houston Texans. J.J. Watt manhandled Titans’ guards during both games last season. Cooper is given the edge against speed rushers. He is also more versatile, having playing both guard and center. The Titans haven’t been that effective at center since the departure of Kevin Mawae. They did not sign current starting center Fernando Velasco to an extension, and injuries dev-

All-American guard Chance Warmack just might be the Tennessee Titans first-round draft choice when the picks are announced Thursday night

astated the offensive line last season. There is also pressure on the drafting team to get more immediate contributors across the board. While they’ve done decent jobs in terms of retention (79 percent of the players selected are still in the league and 63 percent remain with the team), the stats don’t look so good when you begin focusing on performance. Only 13 of their 43 draftees over the last five years have started more than half their games. Only two have made the Pro Bowl, Chris Johnson and kick/punt returner Marc Mariani. Johnson is the lone Titans’ draftee to make an All-Pro team (and some feel he should have been NFL offensive MVP the year he gained 2,000 yards). But on the plus side, they do have current QB starter Jake Locker, defensive tackle Jurrell Casey and linebackers Akeem Ayers and Colin McCarthy all

making sizable contributions from the 2011 draft class. They also have gotten major boosts from last year’s selections of wide receiver Kendall Wright and linebacker Zack Brown. Big things are still expected from wide receiver Kenny Britt, who’s been unable to stay healthy, and defensive end Derrick Morgan. The Titans also haven’t always been in the greatest drafting position, since their average spot has been 20th. They cannot afford to make any mistakes this time, which is why the choice to possibly select a guard is getting so much scrutiny. The NFL draft gets underway with round one Thursday. The second and third rounds are Friday beginning at 5:30 p.m. The final rounds (four through seven) start at 11 a.m. The entire draft will be televised on both ESPN and the NFL Network.

NBA PLAYOFFS

LA Clippers Up 2-0 Over Grizzlies By Ron Wynn

The Los Angeles Clippers’ All-Pro point guard Chris Paul scored in the final minute Monday night, giving his team a 93-91 victory and 2-0 series lead against the Memphis Grizzlies. The shot was reviewed by officials multiple times before they signaled it good. Paul’s play negated a strong Grizzlies’ comeback that saw them overcome a 10-point fourth quarter deficit, and tie the game for the final time at 91. Paul, who had previously missed a thee-pointer, drove toward the right baseline, eluding attempts by Tony Allen to force him left. His running one-handed shot scored with just a tenth of a second remaining, and a desperation Memphis’ final try was short and wide. “That’s why there’s star players,” Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro told the Washington Post. “Chris has done it his whole career. In the biggest moments, that’s usually when he’s at his best. He has that competitive drive, which is a gift that not everyone has.” The Grizzlies, who have the next two games at home, can only contemplate possible different outcomes that could have occurred if other things hadn’t happened. For instance, if Zach Randolph had not been saddled with foul problems once more and been able to do a better defensive job on Blake Griffin. Randolph ended with five fouls and scored 13 points. Griffin, who had his own foul problems in game one, came out far more aggressive and began scoring early. He ended with 21 points and eight rebounds. Jamal Crawford also hurt the Grizzlies off the bench once more, getting 15 points. Crawford, a former Sixth Man of the Year, finished second in the voting this season to the New York

Knicks’ J.R. Smith. But it was a battle of point guards, and Paul led the way for the Clippers with 24 points and nine assists. During the fourth quarter’s final moments (3:46) Paul had eight straight points. Yet, he was actually outscored by the Grizzlies’ Mike Conley, who had his finest playoff game. Conley had 28 points to lead all scorers, including 10 in the fourth quarter. He led the comeback charge after the Clippers went ahead 81-71, hitting five straight points. Unfortunately, no one could put the brakes on Paul. “It could have gone either way,” Allen said. “If he had missed, you could have been saying how good a defender I was. The guy made an amazing shot and all you can do is just deal with the results.” The Grizzlies also must answer other questions, notably fourth quarter foul shooting (they were only six of 10) even though they made 23 of 34 overall. The Clippers again won the rebound battle, but this time it was just 40-38. The Grizzlies also had more second chance points (1511), and narrowly outscored the Clippers 20-18 in the fourth quarter. Marc Gasol, expected to be named NBA Defensive Player of the Year this week, had 17 points. Allen had 16 and 10 rebounds. But it was still a tough loss that

Coming Next Week

puts the Grizzlies in a must win spot for the next two games. “It’s not doom and gloom,” Grizzles coach Lionel Hollins maintained. “We got to go home and there’s going to be two hard-fought battles. We had a chance to win the game. We didn’t get enough defensive stops and we missed too many free throws.” “We thought we played as good a game as we could,” Conley added. “It hurts. We wanted to come here and steal one.” “C.P. made a tough, tough shot there off the glass,” Tayshun Prince said. “It was great defense and things like that, but things never come down to the last play. It’s what you do in the middle of the game that dictates winning or losing.” “The thing we’re most disappointed in is Game 1, how we all came out flat,” Prince continued. “We were just flat as a group. The effort was a lot better today, but we have to be better.” The Grizzlies’ season rests on the next two games, Thursday night and Saturday afternoon at Fed Ex Forum. Both are on TNT, with Thursday’s game beginning at 8:30 p.m. and Saturday’s at 3:30 p.m. (both times approximately depending on other games). Either Fox Tennessee or SportSouth will also have coverage featuring Memphis Grizzlies’ broadcasters.

The NBA playoffs continue, and the Memphis Grizzlies are in a tough battle for survival. They need wins in both home games for any chance at beating the Los Angeles Clippers and advancing to the second round. Will the Titans actually use the 10th pick in the draft for an offensive lineman? We’ll have their pick. The Predators finally end a dismal season on the road, one that’s seen them miss the playoffs for the first time since the 2008-09 season. Also, the Vanderbilt Commodores and Belmont Bruins point toward the end of the SEC and OVC seasons, anticipating postseason play and possible berths in the College World Series.

ON THIS DAY

On this Day in 1950 the color line in professional basketball was shattered as Chuck Cooper became the first Black player drafted and signed in the National Basketball Association. Cooper was signed by legendary Celtics coach Red Auerbach. He had played at West Virginia State College and Duquesene. He spent four years with the Celtics, then was traded to the then Milwaukee Hawks. He later ended his career with the Fort Wayne Pistons. Though far from a star, Cooper played in 409 games. He averaged 6.6 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.79 assists. He, Nat “Sweetwater” Clifton and Earl Lloyd, all joined the NBA in 1950, but Cooper was first to actually take the court in an NBA game.

Prosthetic Limb Advances Could Help Victims in Boston Bombings

The tragic April 15 bombing at the Boston Marathon took the lives of three people and has left dozens of people with serious injuries, many of whom have lost limbs. Vanderbilt mechanical engineer Michael Goldfarb, an expert in the field of prosthetic devices and director of the Center for Intelligent Mechatronics, says dramatic advances in technology could help give these victims artificial legs that work much better than ever before. “Within the next one to three years, ‘bionic’ prosthetic devices will be available for people that are substantially smarter, more capable, more active and more interactive than those that are currently on the market,” said Goldfarb, the H. Fort Flowers Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Vanderbilt. In the last few years Goldfarb and his colleagues have developed the first bionic lower limb prosthetic with powered knee and ankle joints that operate in unison. It is the type of prosthetic that many of the Boston victims with severe leg injuries will need because most had their legs amputated above the knee. This bionic leg comes equipped with sensors that monitor its user’s motion. It has microprocessors programmed to use this data to “sense” and predict what the person is trying to do and operate the device in ways that facilitate these movements. “The kinds of devices that we are developing make it possible for users to perform a number of ‘patterned’ activities, such as sitting, standing, walking on an incline,

or walking up and down stairs,” Goldfarb said. “And it helps patients to walk with a more comfortable and smooth gait. But they are not yet suitable for ‘unpatterned activities’ like dancing.” Prof. Michael Goldfarb, right, and Craig Hutto, who lost his lower leg in a shark attack when he was a boy and served as a test subject while the leg was being developed. (John Russell / Vanderbilt ) Last November, researchers at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago modified one of Goldfarb’s bionic prosthetic limbs with a simple neural interface. The combination allowed amputee Zac Vawter to set a record by climbing 103 flights of stairs to the top of Chicago’s Willis Towers. But Goldfarb says engineers need more time to perfect the device for all users. “There is a big difference between designing a neural system in a lab that will work with one person and developing a system suitable for a mass market,” said Goldfarb. Goldfarb sees a parallel between the progress currently being made in prosthetic device technology and the evolution of the cell phone into the smartphone. “Smartphones are a lot more complicated than cell phones and they can to a lot more things. However, they have managed to maintain the same basic level of reliability,” he said. “The neural interface is similar to the Siri voice recognition system— if it is done well, it will make a tremendous difference. But if it doesn’t work well, we can still make use of most of the functionality of our devices without it.”
