J OBS! J OBS! J OBS Why We Celebrate The 4th Of July

Many American families will celebrate the 4th of July with the traditional Parades, Barbecues and fireworks that they look forward to each year. It is a great time for family gatherings, vacations and firework shows but how many can tell you what we are celebrating? Some may ask why it matters at all, but it does, our History is what got us where we are as a nation today. In order to secure our future it is important to preserve our history. July 4, 1776 is the day that the America became independent from Great Britain by adopting the Declaration of Independence. The reason why we wanted independence from Great Britain is because they kept creating more rules and demanding higher taxes of the colonists. These strict rules and the higher taxes made the colonist angry, which made them start making plans to become and independent nation. The Declaration of Independence was written by Thomas Jefferson and was adopted on July 4th 1776. After being revised, it was read aloud to the public on July 8th 1776 and it was celebrated with gunfire and fireworks. Since then, Americans have celebrated our freedom with fireworks, parades and gatherings. In 1870, after the Civil War and after African Americans were freed from slavery the 4th of July became a recognized holiday. Many Americans celebrated but the 4th of July was not a legally recognized holiday until 1938. The Declaration of Independence is not just a piece of paper, it is a symbol of our country and of the dreams and aspirations that the colonists in 1776 had for our country. When the signers of the Declaration of Independence signed, signing such a document was illegal, they could have been hung for the crime of Treason by the leaders of Great Britain. These people fought for our rights and for our independence as a nation. They fought for the Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness that we all live with today.

Line­up Change, Changes Rialto’s Fortune

Photography By Vanessa Hernandez­

By Marcelle Baber Charter Oak, California­Changes to the starting line­up and errors proved to be costly for the Rialto (U12) Girls All­star team Saturday afternoon as they fell to Charter Oak 4­3 .Charter Oak came out swinging, scoring three runs on 1 hit, 1 walk and 3 errors after sending only five batters to the plate. Rialto called time out and made a pitching change along with some other key substitutions and order was quickly restored. They came back to score two runs in their half of the first inning on a triple by Pamala Baber. She knocked in Gabriella Gomez and Bella Robles who walked and singled respectively. After a shaky start, Charter Oak pitcher B. Sierra settled down and pitched a marvelous game

Research has shown that an alarming amount of American’s have a vitamin D deficiency. A vitamin D deficiency would not be such a problem if vitamin D was not completely necessary in having a longer life by preventing disease, preventing infection, building stronger bones and muscles, maintaining blood sugar levels, prevents high blood pressure and preventing infections. Vitamin D can also help prevent many auto­immune diseases like, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and multiple sclerosis. Some of the top food sources of vitamin D are fish, Soy Milk, orange juice, ready to eat (cold) cereal, malt­o­meal and milk. Milk alone is likely not a good source of you daily vitamin D intake. A daily dose of 1000­2000 IU has been said to help prevent disease and lower mortality rate by about 7%. The summer sun at noon for about 30­ minute, full body exposure will provide about 20,000 IU of vitamin D, a darker skinned person will get about half as much. Although, the sun is an excellent source of vitamin D there are many downfalls such as premature aging and skin cancer that you need to take into consideration. Another good source of vitamin D is supplements. Most American diets do not provide enough vitamin D so in cases like that supplements are important. The groups that have an increased risk of a vitamin D deficiency are dark complected individuals, the obese, the elderly and those who avoid the sun. With all the research done the benefits of vitamin D are very promising and it is worth the effort to get the proper daily recommendations.

allowing 3 runs, 8 hits, 2 walks, while striking out 7 batters. She also went 1­ for­3, ripping a run scoring double in the first inning and scored a run. Her teammates gave her great support on defense committing only two errors. However, one of those mistakes allowed the tying run to score in the bottom of the fourth inning. With two outs in the top of the fifth inning, B. Fraijo singled and came around to score on two Rialto miscues to provide what would ultimately be the game winning run for Charter Oak. Rialto had one last shot in their half of the fifth inning. With two outs, Priscilla Solis was thrown out attempting to go from first base to third on a single by Aija Winn, who additionally, had a double and scored a run in the game. With the victory Charter Oak advanced to the championship round where they will face Claremont later in the day.

WikiLeaks Every Governments Worst Nightmare By Jim Hauge Wiki Leaks is every government’s nightmare. Never in the history of the USA has there been such a threat greater than the release of so much information that this might be the turning point of the American empire. The threat of terrorism by Al Qaeda, while great, is no match than the threat of file sharing of confidential information. Wikileaks.org is a website that discloses confidential government files from various cables (such as the ‘U.S. Department of Defense ‘) that are vital to the integrity of the US. Yet somehow they were obtained, uploaded, and then swarmed around the world like a virus. How did this happen? I doubt the US ever saw it coming. Which leads one to wonder if old minds are running the show in Washington DC. While I don’t

condone the release and distribution of Top Secret government files that endanger Americans, how could the government not secure these files from the Internet? File sharing is not new. We had Napster in the 1990s that devastated the once powerful music industry. Because of Napster, record companies have fallen from grace and music artists are left to fend for themselves. Digital versions of movies and TV shows have been distributed online before a scheduled release. I remember back in 1999, when the world was eagerly waiting for the release of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. The digitized version of the movie was circulated online before its scheduled release at local theaters. So what about document files? The American government should have learned from the music and film industries when files were shared as

far back as the mid­1990s. Today computers, servers, and bandwidth have grown stronger, faster, and more available then ever before. In order for someone to steal documents electronically the documents themselves had to have been stored on a server….unsecured! What were sensitive and top secret documents doing in a server connected to the Internet? By 2007 Wiki Leaks has amassed over 1.2 million documents from ‘various’ sources. Perhaps these sources were disgruntled government employees or news groups. Wiki Leaks is being held liable not for obtaining these documents, but making them available for the world to see. Until now, leaking documents was not always considered a crime. In fact, it was heroic. Without leaks we would not hear about the atrocities around the world especially in nations with

controlled press. Wiki Leak founder, Julian Assange, is a hero in Kenya for reporting about secret police killings of private citizens. He was awarded the Amnesty International UK Media Award for this work known as, “Kenya: The Cry of Blood – Extra Judicial Killings and Disappearances.” Russia went as far as recommending Assange for the noble peace prize for leaking sensitive documents from the US Department of Defense. However, Assange and crew attacked the US, a nation that must justify the logic behind three unpopular military engagements (Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan) and on the verge of the fourth (North Korea). Some of the contents disclosed within these documents show that arrogance and greed served a bigger purpose behind the wars than security. It also showed disrespect by US politicians for making disparaging

remarks about foreign politicians from nations they consider allies. This is unfortunate since the US has to rebuild its reputation as a peace­ loving nation protecting it’s very allies who’s leaders they are disparaging. Assange is a villain to the American government, but a hero to millions worldwide. There are millions worldwide who would love to see America’s downfall from world prominence. While the US has shut down the Wiki leaks website (for now), it will be challenged to prevent files from traveling through various servers and into countless number of computers worldwide. To say these files are in the wrong hands is a gross understatement. As are the wars it is fighting and terrorist attacks it has endured, the Wikileaks disaster could have been prevented.

Each Garmin nuvi product features its own special charm and the value is right too. It combines amazing accuracy capabilities with a fashionable style and easy graphical user interface that is friendly for even first time customers. They are the required things that make a customary GPS device really soar. At this moment all Garmin has to try and do is stick with it the tradition and stay up to the developments as its competitions try to steal the crown. The Garmin nuvi 1490LMT takes the high road for people who want a massive GPS product that they'll keep for a whereas. My Review of Garmin nuvi 1490LMT GPS The 1490LMT

has masses to offer as it is beginning with pre put in U.S., Canada, and Mexico maps along with a lot of points of interest. What makes it even higher is that you just get free map updates forever along with free traffic updates whereby you never would like to purchase something. The Garmin nuvi 1490LMT is filled with navigation functionality beginning with its enhanced route planning capabilities, allowing you up to ten routes to be kept for long vacation travels. It implements a breadcrumb path feature therefore that it will leave behind as several as 10,00 points and you would not inadvertently

retrace your routes. It uses HotFix satellite prediction therefore that the device is consistently correct as it predicts the satellites location for quicker calculating. The text­to­speech capabilities call out the road name therefore you recognize precisely when you ought to make the turn. There is no need to blast the degree either thanks to the good engineered­in speaker clarity. In case you're traveling throughout rush hours, then you'll slow the pace as the nuvi 1490LMT will give you up­to­ date traffic reports. Whereas you're in traffic, you'll also use the GPS to listen to traffic updates. As a result, you will be

in a position to stay faraway from any traffic jams before getting to that part of the road. I have been looking for a smart GPS system for my automotive for a while, so after I found the one that I needed I was continuously hesitant as a result of of course everything on the box would seem like a nice plan, nevertheless I had to listen to from real folks who might have used the system if it had been a system that was value getting. However it's rarely that easy, and it took some time however I suppose that I was ultimately ready to urge all the answers to my questions. Bluetooth is another nice feature as part of the nuvi

1490LMT. It lets you combine up the GPS along with your movable and use it like a hands­free device. It is easy to form hands­ free calls and also dial directly from the GPS to thousands of points of interest which are already stored in the nuvi?s database. In outline, the Garmin nuvi 1490LMT is choked with useful options that will make traveling easier and fewer dangerous. And with the street value around $two hundred, the Garmin nuvi 1490LMT is additionally economical and a nice get for anybody who is trying for a transportable automotive GPS.

Garmin 1490lmt, never leave your assistant

Well, It’s time to look back and see what we have accomplished since the first of the year. What, if anything, did we decide we were going to start doing or stop doing? The first of the year is a time when we hope to make changes in our lives, hopeful to do it differently than last year. I talk to many people and they all say the same thing. “Where has the time gone, time is flying,I can’t believe it, this week, month is already gone”. The young and the old all feel and say the same thing about time. Well, it’s not too late to start over if we dropped the ball. Let’s pick it up and start over. I went on the Internet to look up the definition of time. Wow, there were all kinds of meanings for time. Some I understood and some I didn’t. Time is involved in many things, but I came up with my own thoughts of what time is and what we should do with it. Time is too precious to let it slip away. We need to slow time down, start taking time out to relax, and find a place that is still and quiet. Take time to sit and have breakfast or dinner with our families. Turn the television and music off and take time to visit and communicate with our family

members. Say these words, “I love you,” to your spouse, your children, and your friends. I am sure it will be right on time. We all need to hear those words; there is special power in them. Take time to help someone in need. Take time to greet others in public places ­ a smile, hello, or how are you doing would be nice. Take the time when driving to let a car ease in front of you. Rushing to go first is rushing your time by. Oh, and take the time to slow down and stop at a yellow light ­ don’t speed up. Slowing down and stopping at a yellow light can save lives. Using time just to rush in every direction is not a good thing. Take time to listen to someone else’s opinion in a conversation before cutting them off to give your opinion. We need to take time to develop better listening skills. Oh yea, le’ts take time to prepare healthy meals for ourselves and family members before rushing out to fast­foods. Health plays a big picture in this time of our lives. If we need something to do for the rest of this year, we can focus on time. Take the time to think about something you might want to accomplish and know that it is never too late to get started. Time is so precious to just let it slip by.

EMPLOYMENT

Making The Best Of Your Job Interview Seeking employment can be a daunting task but to make the most of your interviews there are some important things you must know. Being prepared for your interview will give you an edge among others who showed up not prepared. Knowing what to expect can give you the foundation for making a great impression and getting the job. Learning about the organization or company you are interviewing with is very important. It is impressive to interviewers when you have an idea what type of job your are applying for and that you took the time to learn about who they are. When spoken to by the interviewer listen so when it is your turn you could match your skills to what the company is

looking for. You are selling yourself so you need to present yourself as exactly what they are looking for to benefit their company. Be ready to speak about your last place of employment­ Some things to be ready to speak about is how you got along with others on the job, what you did for the company, how the skills you got with that company can help the company and most importantly why you left. They may ask if you liked the job, if you did not never talk bad about the past job, simply let them know it may have not been the best match for you. Speak slowly, clearly and professionally, if you are prepared this will be simple. Clothing, hairstyle and make­

up (if you are a woman) all are very important to the first impression that you will give. Make sure to dress in appropriate attire like a nice suit or shirt and slacks. Your hair should be in a simple hairstyle that does not attract inappropriate attention. Do not wear strong cologne or perfume, not everyone has the same taste in fragrances. Never let the employer see you smoking or chewing gum and do not come in smelling like smoke. First impression is not everything but it is important in building the great interview. When going to your interview you want to show up on time, it is best to plan to be there about 30 minutes early in case there is traffic or any other delays. If

You Need To Network To Find A Job A lot of people are wondering if there is some kind of trick to finding employment in today’s sluggish job market. Many wonder how someone with far less skills than themselves had no problem finding employment while your skills their skills just go unused while still looking for work. There is not really a trick but there are many steps you can take in order to better your chances in achieving your goal in finding employment. Networking is important, it is not wise to hide the fact that you are looking for work. It is understandable that some are embarrassed or hesitant to announce their recent job loss but unless you speak up no one will know and no one can help. Many companies rely soley on referrals for their new hires. Tell friends, family and even neighbors that you are looking for work and ask if they know of any jobs available where they work. If there is a job available ask them for a referral and take what you can get. There may be plenty of room for growth but the main part is getting your foot is

in the door. If you find yourself with the problem of the gap between employers getting too large or you need more experience volunteering may be the way to go. If you find an organization that works doing something that you are passionate about it will help the organization, will make you feel good and will give you the job skills or employment history you need. Many organizations eventually hire their volunteers for a paid positions so prove yourself and offer assistance using the skills you have. It is apparent that many people do not find a job because they are too busy sitting on the couch complaining that they can not find a job. Sure, many have looked and many have had numerous turn downs but turn downs are inevitable as long as you are looking. Keep a positive attitude toward the turn downs and keep looking until you achieve your goal of finding a job. If you continue to apply for employment chances are you’ll find a job.

you arrive at the location early do not go in until about 5­10 minutes before your interview. Stay calm, even if you are a basket case you do not want them to see that. Greet the interviewer with a nice smile and a firm handshake. Keep eye contact and do not answer questions before they ask the entire question. Make sure to ask questions about the company but do not ask questions that can easily be found on the company website, that would show that you did not do your homework. When the interview is over make sure to thank the interviewer and shake hands. It is a nice gesture to send a short thank you note after the interview. If you do not hear

back from the employer you may want to follow up in a couple of days. Just say you wanted to thank them for the great interview, and tell them you are just following up. A great interview is the most crucial part of finding the job you have been looking for. So make sure you prepare by learning about the company, knowing what you will be saying, selecting proper attire and calming down. Just prepare to present yourself in a way that you look confident, like they are looking for you and you are there to offer your help. Preparation is the key to success with anything so be prepared and the job will follow.

The Thrill Of Victory

The youth of today ­ what’s going to become of them? And so begins the criticisms and rants regarding the misdeeds of our young people. They are disrespectful, lazy, irresponsible, misguided, etc. All too often these disparaging comments refer to our children of color. While there is evidence some of this negativism does exist, there is too little focus placed on the positives. There is an organization which seeks to do just that. The Afro Academic, Cultural, Technological, and Scientific Olympics (ACT­SO) is one such organization. Under the leadership of the NAACP, ACT­SO highlights the talents of African American high school students from across the

country in twenty­six categories including the sciences, humanities, business, performing and visual arts. It is a yearlong achievement program whose goal is ‘to recruit, stimulate, encourage high academic and cultural achievement for high school students.’ From February through April, local competitions are held. Those winners proceed to the national competition. This year in July, Nationals will be held in Los Angeles during the NAACP National Convention. Two winners of the local competition reside in the Inland Empire. Perri Scott is an upcoming sophomore at Rancho Cucamonga High School and an active member of Antioch Missionary Baptist Church in Pomona. For her entry Perri wrote a poem titled “Black Woman” which

focuses on the lives and struggles of Black women. “Black women get a lot of negatives. I wanted to present the positive side,” stated Perri when asked what inspired her to pen the poem. Additionally, she performed a personal dramatic piece which delved into her relationship with her father. With so many activities and interests, why add more? Her goal is to become a songwriter. “Writing poetry will help toward writing songs. Dramatics will help me in future performances,” Perri explained. Extrinsically, Perri received two gold medals and a plaque for her creative efforts. Intrinsically, she gained a life­long reward ­ a sense of self confidence. Her advice to other youths who may be reluctant to accept a similar challenge is, “Stay true to yourself. Don’t let fears hold you

and a precious jewel. Mother Moore’s picture was taken, and she was asked by us to hold up the picture of her grandmother, Lou (Washington) Casey another precious jewel who lived to reach 124 years of life (1826 ­ 1951). She stood about 4 feet tall and had 14 children. Mother Moore’s father, Lewis Casey, lived to reach 117 years of life. Her mother, Callie Casey, lived to be 99 years of life. Mother Moore’s parents were married for 75 years, longer than General Motors was a company. As I spoke with Mother Moore I was amazed at the wisdom that came out of her heart, mind, and mouth. Mother Moore stated the food her family grew in the 1930’s kept them and their neighbors from going hungry. They loved everyone. If her family had a piece of bread, they shared it. She had my crew thinking, laughing, and in awe at what we were hearing. I would like to share some of

the wisdom and comments that Mother Moore shared with us. She stated the Lord has kept her here all these years. Keeping the belly clean, liquor and beer out of the belly is what helps. She was so proud that she was able to vote for President Obama. Mother Moore never thought she would live long enough to see a Black president. A tip for her long marriage was humor as well as kindness. It kept the marriage together. Her advice for the young ladies: if a man comes to see you, ask him if he is looking for a wife because you’re looking for a husband. If he’s not looking for a wife, tell him to keep on stepping. Her advice to the young men: it pays to do the right thing. You don’t have to be arrested and put behind bars. She wishes every preacher will preach that message. She wants the parent to teach their children before they leave home and that all races

Family of Generations Blessed with Longevity By Ethel Martin­Miller

What a wonderful interview with a precious lady name Mattie (Casey) Pompey Moore, to whom many refer as Mother Moore. She was born July 27, 1911 the oldest of 10 children, 5 girls and 5 boys. She married Emmett L. Pompey in October 1929, but he is now deceased. In the fifties she was the assistant pastor at True Holiness Temple Church in Detroit, Michigan under Pastor Hazel Bullock. Mother Moore worked at Grace Hospital as a cook. The doctors in the hospital came to the kitchen to find out who was frying that good chicken; none of them had tasted chicken like that. Some of the doctors came and got her name, and one of the doctors hired her to cook chicken for him. A grand party has been planned at the Double Tree Hotel Ontario for Mother Moore’s 100th birthday this month. She is a blessed centenarian

Can You Handle The Truth Series

"And Ye Shall Know The Truth and The Truth Shall Make You Free John" JOHN 8:32 By Pastor John H. Clark

But can you handle the truth? Have you ever skimmed over the description given to Moses of how the tabernacle was to be built? Have you ever wondered why so much detail was given to the building? Do you know the significance of the tabernacle to Israel, and to us today? In this months lesson we will deal very briefly with the Tabernacle and it's significance to Israel and the church, but in order to understand the purpose of the Tabernacle we must go back to the beginning. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:27 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Genesis 1:28 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. Genesis 2:16­17. Adam was created in the image of God which suggests he was not

July 2011

intended to ever die, but when he disobeyed God he immediately died spiritually, and began the process of physical death. More importantly he allowed sin to enter the world and relinquished his authority to Satan who became the god of this world. (2 Corinthians 4:4) Satan and his angels fell, whereas people die. The Bible does not say that we are fallen; it says we are dead. The word death in Scripture connotes separation. Our sins have separated us from God. But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that muttered perverseness. Isaiah 59:2. Since sin separated man from God it was no longer possible for the spirit of God to dwell in dead man. However, since God still desired to dwell in man, he instructed Moses to erect the Tabernacle so he would have a dwelling place in the midst of his people. Since Jesus paid the price, and became the ultimate sacrifice God is now able to dwell in man. Today our bodies are the Tabernacle, or the place where God dwells. What? Know ye not that your body is the Temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own. II Corinthians 6:19 The Tabernacle was designed by God and constructed under

the direction of Moses as revealed to him by the Lord. It was God's sanctuary – God's Holy Tent and His temporary dwelling place. Psalms 132:7 The instructions for building the Tabernacle were carried out exactly as the Lord commanded Moses on Mount Sinai. Exodus 25: 9. Throughout the Bible, God's reason for the Tabernacle was restoration of man's fellowship, lost due to Adam's disobedience, by means of redemption. It was in the Garden of Eden that our Creator was first rejected, but throughout Scripture, God's heart cry has been to dwell permanently with His people. Exodus 25: 8b For a holy and righteous God to dwell with His people, the sin of mankind and individual sin had to be removed. The Tabernacle and its sacrifices point to the future redemptive sacrifice of Christ on the cross, where the barrier of sin was finally removed once and for all. The Tabernacle was a portable tent where the Children of Israel, were enabled to come and worship Him. The meeting place where the presence of the God could dwell in the midst of His people. John H. Clark, Pastor New Testament Baptist Church Pomona, Ca. 91766 Services Sunday 10:00am­ 12:00pm Wednesday 12:00pm­ 1pm 7:00pm­8:00pm

back.” And now, it’s on to Nationals! Ian Peace, the second local winner, is a diverse student. Ian is an upcoming senior at Los Osos High School in Rancho Cucamonga and an active member of Antioch M.B.C. as well. Ironically, his project was also in the performing arts even though math is his favorite subject. He wrote, edited, directed, filmed, casted, and performed a montage in which the main character must overcome obstacles placed in his way. The theme as defined by Ian: only you can defeat yourself. Whatever obstacles come your way, you can overcome. Ian has an interest in playing tennis and basketball, but his goal is to attend USC or NYU with a major in filmmaking and a minor in business filmmaking which adds to his

need to love one another. I could go on and on about Mother Moore, but I will leave you with the words to a song that Mother Moore wrote. She sang the song on the streets and when she would look around, there would be crowds of people standing and listening to her sing. “You got to love one another if you want to see Jesus; you got to love one another if you want to see the

diversity. When asked why he accepted the ACT­SO challenge Ian responded, “This is a start toward my career in filmmaking.” He also received a gold medal and expects the same victory at Nationals. Congratulations to these competitors! Maybe others will become involved in ACT­SO next year and other organizations that highlight youthful talent. Everybody can’t be an athlete but find positive avenues to showcase your creativity. Follow the wisdom of Perri when she stated, “Success is more than sports for African Americans.” Ian’s advice to all young people is pertinent to these times: “Get on track for the future.” It’s never too early to start preparations.

Lord. You need a mind of things above us. Jesus said, ‘ love ye one another.’ You got to do all things right if you want to see the Lord.” She stated after singing she would start ministering to all the people. Our crew all learned her song before we left her home. I thank you Lord for Mother Moore.

The Four Moods of Bipolar Disorder

By Jane Mountain, MD Has someone told you that you have bipolar disorder or manic­depression? Have you been wondering what having bipolar disorder really means? This article will help you make sense out of what you or a loved one is experiencing. Bipolar disorder is a mood disorder that is neurobiologic. That is, bipolar disorder is a physical illness involving the brain. It is not a character flaw or laziness. If you have bipolar disorder you are not purposely being “moody.” Nor can you “just snap out of it.” A person who has diabetes cannot “snap out” of having diabetes; neither can you snap out of having bipolar disorder. However, having bipolar disorder does not mean that you can’t take steps toward recovery from your illness. Many of you with bipolar disorder are struggling with accepting the fact that you have a real condition that prevents your brain from regulating mood properly. You may be reeling from the powerful effect this disorder has had on your life. But the more you learn about bipolar disorder, the more insight you can gain, and that will help you to better manage your illness. Bipolar literally means two poles, implying that in bipolar disorder there are two basic “poles” or extremes of mood However, thinking of bipolar disorder in terms of two extremes of mood is misleading. It is more accurate to think of bipolar disorder as a wide range of moods. Our goal in the rest of this article will be to answer these questions: What is mood? What is normal mood? What is depression? What are hypomania and mania? How can I meet the challenges of bipolar disorder? What is mood ? Mood is a very strong word. It comes from older words meaning mind, spirit, courage, and to strive strongly, be energetic. An even older word that mood comes from means custom or customary behavior. Thus mood means more than feeling happy or sad. Mood encompasses much of what we need to live. Mind, spirit, and courage, striving and energy, custom and behavior—all are related to mood and our sense of well­being. Thus having bipolar disorder affects us in many ways, presenting challenges as well as abilities such as enhanced creativity and sensitivity to the world around us. Many with bipolar disorder have influenced our lives and culture. These include Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill, Virginia Woolf, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Robert Schumann. Bipolar disorder is about more than whether we feel happy or sad at a particular time. Bipolar disorder can be emotionally painful and have a major impact on our lives. At the same time it is a disorder that

involves all aspects of mood. In addition to the challenges it presents, it also bestows gifts of seeing the world differently from others whose moods remain in a normal range. As mentioned already, thinking of bipolar disorder as being two extremes of mood is misleading even though the term bipolar implies only two poles of mood—depression and mania. It is more accurate to think of bipolar disorder as involving a wide range of moods. At its core is the brain’s inability to regulate mood. This inability to regulate mood within a normal range results in varying degrees of depression or mania. At times there may even be a mixed mood—a state that has elements of both depression and mania. In bipolar disorder your mood takes on a life of its own that is independent of what is happening in your life. Your mood thus becomes independent of your experiences. This “disconnecting” of mood and experience presents challenges in daily life. Sense of identity and self­confidence can be affected. Symptoms such as extreme irritability can affect relationships. Sadness and hopelessness can become overwhelming and even lead to suicide. The sense of self can be lost by not knowing what to expect from your moods from day to day or even from hour to hour or minute to minute. What is normal mood? Beginning with normal mood is important because it is the hardest mood to understand for a person who is experiencing bipolar disorder. Most people take for granted that they feel happy or content most of the time. Happiness or contentment describes normal mood. Especially if you are experiencing bipolar depression, you may not realize that most people feel happy most of the time. Most people have a stable mood that doesn’t have wide swings. Instability of mood is the hallmark of bipolar disorder. Such instability makes it difficult to recognize normal mood. Just as it may be difficult for you to understand normal mood, those around you may have difficulty understanding depression, hypomania or mania. For instance many people with normal mood will say that they are “depressed” when they are having a bad day. This is better described as having a “blue mood,” which quickly passes. The difference between depression and a blue mood is that the blue mood may vary a bit but it remains within a normal range. Blue mood does not stay at an extreme for very long, but lifts after a short time. Also the ability to enjoy pleasurable activities remains. For example, if someone with

normal mood is having a low mood, that person may decide to go to a movie with some friends. This may be enjoyable and may even lift that person’s mood. Depression differs in that it is much more intense and lasts from weeks to months or even years. Going to a movie does not help the person who is depressed to “snap out” of depression. In our example, a depressed person may not be able even to enjoy the movie. What is depression? Depression is an intensely sad mood that lasts for at least two weeks. It may be characterized by irritability (usually an anxious irritability), and loss of enjoyment. Take the above example of going to the movies. If you are experiencing depression you may not be able to enjoy a movie or an outing with your friends. Sadness, irritability and loss of enjoyment are emotional features of depression. Depression also has cognitive features. Cognitive means thinking. In other words, thinking may be affected by depression. Often concentration and focus are impaired. Concentration is being able to pay attention to what you are doing so that you can complete thoughts or tasks. Focusing is keeping on track without forgetting what you are doing or being easily distracted. A second cognitive feature of depression is that of a sense of worthlessness. This may take many forms. Examples are a belief that you cannot do things right, a belief that you have no friends, or a belief that you are a failure in life. Notice here that I am using the word belief to describe this cognitive feature. That is because a sense of worthlessness may have nothing whatsoever to do with the reality of your accomplishments, the number of friends you have or your success in life. The cognitive feature of a sense of worthlessness has nothing to do with your actual self­ worth but everything to do with the thinking that can accompany depression. Hopelessness is another cognitive feature of depression, which causes you to see the world in an unrealistic way. The thinking process of hopelessness makes sense to you because your thinking process is not working normally. If you feel like harming yourself or others, you need to be in a safe place. That place may be with others who can monitor your behavior, but more likely hospitalization may be needed until the extreme hopelessness passes. When you are in the depths of hopelessness you need to ask for help. This may mean calling your psychiatrist, your therapist, or a trusted person who cares about you. An alternative is to call a suicide hotline (1.800.SUICIDE) or to dial 911. Keep in your purse or wallet a note that says, “I am feeling suicidal. I need help.” When you are not suicidal show it to a few trusted people and give them instructions about how to get help. You can use the note when you feel suicidal but can’t ask for help. Our bodies are also affected by depression. You may sleep too much or too little, yet always feel tired. You may lose your normal appetite or have too great an appetite. You may have a headache, stomach ache or fatigue. Or you may find yourself crying without being able to stop. What are hypomania and mania? Hypomania is a word that confuses many people. Hypo means under and hypomania is a mood that is “under mania.” It is not as extreme as mania but lies somewhere between mania and normal mood. Hypomania is a bit harder to recognize and often remains hidden. Mania is more easily recognized. Mania is an expansive mood just waiting to be seen by all. Because mania is often pleasurable, you may not want treatment for mania. Getting treatment may feel a bit like giving up a good friend. Unfortunately, the mania’s friendship brings serious challenges into your life that can make it less manageable. Lifelong treatment seeks to even out your moods so that you can be happier and accomplish your goals in life. Untreated mania will lead to instability and will greatly disrupt

your life. There are two kinds of bipolar disorder, Bipolar I and Bipolar II. Bipolar I is characterized by mania; bipolar II differs in that it is characterized by hypomania. Both include swings into depression, but depression tends to be the dominant mood in bipolar II. In order to diagnose bipolar disorder, hypomania or mania must be present at some time and depression must also be present at another time.articleIn the discussion that follows, mania will refer to both hypomania and mania. We will continue by examining the emotional features of mania. Unstable mood is the hallmark of mania. Mania is an exercise of “catch as catch can” because your mood shifts rapidly. For example, you may have sudden bursts of energy contagious to everyone in the room. You may laugh loudly, tell jokes, and almost perform for those around you. But this mood is unstable and within a short time you may move on to a completely different experience of being unable to sit still. This restlessness might cause you to walk quickly out of the room to begin a different activity. Another emotional feature of mania is that of irritability. The irritability of depression has an anxious quality. In mania the irritability is one of being easily frustrated. You may feel as though you could crawl out of your skin. The irritability of mania is often mistaken for anger. Anger differs in that it targets a specific focus, while irritability is without a particular focus. Anger’s target could be another person’s actions, a circumstance or perhaps a perceived failure of yourself or others. When you experience the irritability of mania you feel volatile and any little thing can set you off. You are easily frustrated. Mania’s irritability often causes difficulty in relationships, especially if others interpret your irritability as anger. Mania also has cognitive or thinking features. One of these is grandiosity. With grandiose thinking, you may have ideas and plans so expansive and difficult that they are impossible to accomplish. In mania, however, you are convinced they are well within your capabilities. For example, you may believe you can climb Mount Everest even though you have never even seen a mountain before. Other cognitive features of mania include poor judgment, disorganization and lack of impulse control. When you experience these features of mania, you may have difficulties with relationships, find yourself overwhelmed by clutter, or go on spending sprees. These

cognitive challenges can result in troubles at home, work or in your community. One feature of mania affecting the body is that of increased energy in spite of decreased sleep. You can go for days to weeks with little sleep or even no sleep and yet have high energy. (Compare this to the extreme fatigue often associated with depression.) Mania’s high energy can result in rapid speech or racing thoughts. When you are having these features, you may not perceive them as “rapid” or “racing.” Instead it may seem that the rest of the world has slowed down. Your thoughts can seem intrusive, taking off on topics other than those you want to address. You can feel agitated and as though you cannot sit still or stop moving. However, when mania is less extreme, you may become more productive than normal and may accomplish tasks in a more efficient manner than other people who do not have bipolar disorder. Psychotic features may also occur such as hearing things that are not present or seeing things that are not there. If these latter symptoms occur you need to call your doctor immediately or even call 911, especially if you feel that you are in danger to yourself or others. If things get this severe, others will often intervene because you may not be able to recognize that you need help. How can I meet the challenge of bipolar disorder? The core challenge in bipolar disorder is the brain’s inability to regulate mood. Understanding this is crucial in learning to manage your illness. When your brain is not keeping your mood within a normal range, you are challenged to seek treatment. Medications and psychotherapy, sometimes called talk therapy, can help you. It is important to realize that the goal of treatment is not to take away your personality and creativity. It is to help regulate your moods so that your personality and creativity shine through in a healthy, productive life. Because treatment works you will feel better and be able to accomplish your life goals. You can also find help through education in your community and through bipolar recovery groups. Bipolar disorder is treatable and you will feel better and be better able to accomplish your life goals if you seek treatment. Support from others helps you learn how to manage the challenges of bipolar disorder.

Important Considerations About Debt Settlement By Steve Dowell

Before you sign up for a debt settlement service, you would expect that they will explain what the consequences and drawbacks of the service are. In fact, this is not just an expectation. The law requires debt settlement companies who approach clients by phone, to disclose these drawbacks before signing up new clients. Non­profits aren't required to do so, even though they should for the sake of honesty. As for those of you who are looking into doing it yourselves, you should know that the same drawbacks are valid whether or not you are using a company. Debt settlement cannot be guaranteed If you ever see or hear a settlement company claiming guaranteed results, you should know that they are most likely a scam. The process of a debt settlement is all about negotiating with your creditors. Some of them will be happy to get even a portion of their money back in order to cut losses. Others may have a company policy to not accept settlements in any situation. In such cases your efforts won't be successful regardless of how well one can negotiate. In general, a debt can be settled if you've had bad payment history or if the debt is not in the statute of limitations. Otherwise, your chances of success are much lower. Bad credit after a settlement A settlement

does not remove a debt from your credit report. It will only change its status to "settled" which is still not a good record. Also, any late payments of charge­offs will continue to

exactly legal but it is very popular among people with bad credit. Debt status "settled" After you complete the settlement

stay on your report throughout their standard time limit. Most records will remain for up to 7 years but some can stay for as many as 10 years. In some cases, people prefer to pay off the entire amount they owe in return for the deletion of the bad record. This practice is not

payment, the status of the account will be changed to "settled". This will show other creditors that you did not pay off your debt in full for whatever reason and will have a negative impact on your credit score. Such a record will stay on your report for seven

years, just as much as other negative records do. It will have a major impact on your score initially. As the account ages and you start adding positive information to your credit report, you will be able to repair your credit to its previous state. Debt settlement is a timely process In order to settle a debt you need to show your creditors that you can't otherwise pay it off. That means having missed a few payments. If you just started to miss payments, you would need to wait until your account becomes seriously delinquent to be able to negotiate with your creditors. Even if you already have a bad payment history, you still need to save the money for a lump sum payment which also takes time. As soon as you miss a payment you will start receiving calls from your creditors or collectors which you need to dodge until you are ready to execute your plan. Taxes after a settlement When you cancel debt, you are basically taking and keeping money from your creditors. Receiving money from anyone is considered income, so the IRS expects you to include any cancelled debt over $600 on your tax return. The only exception is if you can prove that you were delinquent at the time of the settlement, which means that your assets were worth less than you debt.

Saving Money While Beating The Heat Many Inland Empire residents dread the upcoming hot days of summer not to mention the very costly air conditioning bills those days bring. Southern California Edison has a great plan that will help you beat the heat while cutting down your summer electricity costs. The Summer Discount Plan has several plan options, the best discount being up to $200 per summer! Southern California Edison will give you four choices, these choices are: SCE can shut off your air conditioner an unlimited amount of times per summer for up to 6 hours at a time. This will help you save up to $200 per summer. SCE can shut off your air conditioner an unlimited amount of times per summer for up to 15 minutes of ever 30 minutes for up to 6 hours. This will help you save up to $50 per summer. SCE can turn off your air conditioning up to 15 times per summer season for up to 6 continious hours. This plan can help you save up to $100 per summer. SCE can turn off your air conditioning up to 15 times per year for up to 15 minutes out of every 30 minutes for up to 6 hours. It costs nothing to sign up for this plan, when you do Southern California Edison will come out to your home and place a small remote­ controlled device on your home near your central air conditioning unit. This remote­controlled device will be used to shut off your air conditioner when there is a need to reduce the electrical load on SCE’s systems. During the summer months June 1 through October 1, you will receive a credit depending on the size of your air conditioner and the plan option you choose. You can sign up for the summer discount plan by calling Southern California Edision at 1­800­ 497­2813 or online at: www.sce.com in the rebates and savings section of their website.

How To Maximize Your Fuel Efficiency Although gas prices have went down a small amount and seems to now be somewhat stable gas is still an major expense in most households. Many people commute to work and pay a large portion of their paycheck just to

get there. Others just do city driving, which still can be hard on the already tight budget many of us live with. We can’t really do much about the gas prices but there are a few things you could do to maximize your gas

mileage. The first thing is, that you should try to keep your ride smooth with as little stopping and going as possible. City driving does use more gas mostly because of stop signs and stop lights,

it is not really the stopping that is the problem but the acceleration after the stop. If you are stuck in traffic it is best to try to slow down, bring your car to almost a slow roll leaving enough distance between you and the

car in front of you. If you can manage to keep this up you could save a good amount of gas. The weight of your vehicle plays a role in how much gas your vehicle uses, so make sure to only bring only what you need. If you have a bike or luggage rack on your vehicle it may be best to remove it until you need to use it. If you have your trunk loaded with lots of “stuff” it is best to go through it and see what actually needs to go along with you. The air conditioner is another culprit for poor fuel economy. The air conditioner uses about 10% more gas than driving without it on. The worst time to use the air conditioner is when you are going 40 miles per hour or less, so when you are city driving it is best to just roll your windows down. Only use the air conditioner when necessary or when driving over 40 miles per hour. The reason for that is that if you are driving 45 miles per hour with the windows down you use about 10% more gas, which is the same as with the air conditioner, at 55 miles per hour you actually use about 20% more gas. Keeping your car tuned up and maintained will always help with gas mileage. Choosing the best gas stations is also very important. Arco is usually the best priced gas stations as are special gas stations like the Costco gas station, Vons gas station, Ralph’s gas station or the Food 4 Less gas stations. If we just watch what we do we could stretch our gas budget enough to let ourselves breath a little easier.

BLU Educational Foundation Awards More Than $100,000 In Scholarships To California Students (Fontana, California) BLU Educational Foundation’s College Exodus Project (CEP) is pleased to announce the recipients of more than $100,000 in renewable scholarships. The awards were presented to 17 students graduating this summer from high schools in Southern California’s Inland Empire (Riverside and San Bernardino Counties). The students are preparing to enter colleges and universities this fall. The scholarships are made possible by a grant from the College Access Foundation, a national leader in the fight to ensure that deserving students with financial need are able to attend college. This is the second consecutive year that more than $100,000 in scholarships have been awarded from the College Exodus Project. The awards cover tuition and fees for local students attending colleges and universities across the nation. “We’re dedicated to preparing students to enter college and to successfully complete their education,” said Dina Walker, President and CEO of BLU Educational Foundation (BLU). “Our highest mission is to ensure that students actually graduate from college,” added Walker. The College Exodus Project assists students in obtaining undergraduate or graduate degrees from accredited colleges and universities, with the intent that they contribute to the local economy through employment, internships and/or volunteer service. The program provides comprehensive college information, assistance and

support to help students with admissions, financial aid, retention and graduation from public and private institutions throughout the country. The program was created out of a need to increase the number of Inland

“Our project team is ever mindful of the college retention rates among African American and Latino males,” said Dr. Daniel E. Walker, a research associate at the University of Southern California and Board Chair at BLU. “We have a strategic plan to reach all

that I could make it in college,” he said. Williams is now entering his second year at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. “We see enormous potential in every student who comes to our program,” said Dina Walker. “We’re not satisfied until every student returns to us as a college graduate. That’s how we measure the success of our programs,” she said. This year’s scholarship awards were presented on Thursday, June 9 at an awards and recognition reception held at the Jessie Turner Health and Fitness Center in Fontana, California. BLU Educational Foundation congratulates the following recipients:

Empire students graduating from college. While the area has low college going rates across all demographics, African American and Latino male students are a strategic focus of the College Exodus Project. According to the California Postsecondary Education Commission, in 2008 only 2.9% of African American and 3.1% of Latino male high school graduates in the state enrolled in the University of California system. These percentages were the lowest of any major demographic group in California.

students. It’s critical however that we have a plan to reach our black and brown young men,” explained Dr. Walker who cites the experience of Jamal Williams, a College Exodus Project participant and former foster care youth from San Bernardino. Before enrolling in the College Exodus Project, Williams believed that a college education was unattainable. “During my senior year I was really worried about the next phase in my life. Then I got involved with the people at BLU and the College Exodus Project. They really made me believe

Is Your Dog Safe In an Auto Accident?

managed to tell him that they were in my purse in the front seat of my car. Then I managed to tell him that I had two dogs in there, and when I left them they were fairly calm, but I didn’t know how they were now. I couldn’t guarantee it. “How big are they?” “Well, the fat one is 23 pounds, and will possible lick your hand, if he is not too upset. The other dog weighs

This is the story how Toby met a policeman. One day, my car was rear ended at a very busy intersection near my home. The other driver was a very young man, only sixteen years old. He was very sweet, and had genuine tears for fear he had hurt me. As a matter of fact, he had reason to cry because he had knocked me a full two car lengths ahead, and his 1971 VW Classic Rabbit, well, it would have to be picked up in paper sacks! The back end of my nearly new Honda laid in the middle of the street, also in pitiful pieces. He had no insurance. I was shaking and crying when I called 911. I’m ashamed to say that when they answered, I could only tell them where I was, but I had difficulty telling them my name. They asked me to spell it, and I couldn’t even say my difficult name, let alone spell it. I think that’s why they sent an ambulance. I then handed my cell to my new friend so he could call his mother. The ambulance got there first.
