Does street lit get our young people to read more, and is that a good thing?

I believe that it`s a excellent way to get young people to read, because  they can relate to a lot of the subject matter.Also,having that interest can become a gateway to learn about other things and…Continue

Tony`s World:Holla at a scholar

Tony`s World: What`s really going on?

Yeah,Yeah, I know. Where was I last week? Sorry, I got caught up. Busy helping a friend with a class project and scheduling some spoken-word poetry performances for this month. But now I`m back, and full of fire-lol. I intentionally made the black phase- "What`s really going on?,the title of this blog just because of all the craziness that is going on today in America and the world in general. The ones in power,as well as ourselves, just can`t seem to get it right.Let`s take a look at different…See More

Tony`s World:Hype

If a word can be defined by a two week period of time, hype fits perfectly. For example, the NFL`s championship game, better known as the Super Bowl. You got all kinds of parties going on, the big halftime show, world-wide media, and of course, the Super Bowl Sunday commericial flood, where advertisers are often at their most inventive. But when I was much younger, I remember getting caught up in the old-school game highlights of previous Super Bowls. I got off on the slow-motion video cuts,…See More

Tony`s World:Saving the patient

In emergency room surgery,there is an important phase called "The Golden Hour". It means basically that doctors have to save or at least stabilize the patient within that hour for the person to have the best chance to live. Our patient,today, is Black History Month. Let`s equip ourselves to save it. As a coach, and a substitute teacher, I am blessed with the opportunity to positively influence young people on a regular basis. Well, recently, I was asked by a fellow teacher to make a…See More

SPAM IS SO NOT COOL!

Please do not greet everyone on the site with large images and announcements of your book or business. Yes, you want to tell the world, but learn the fine art of subtlety. A simple welcome and signature/link is fine. Let them ask you for more.
We have lost numerous members because of the amount of 'friend' mail they instantly receive. This Hurts Everyone.
Spam is unsolicited advertising, whether it is posted as comments on other members' pages or is emailed for marketing purposes.

Please be considerate. Post your advertisement in the proper Articles/Forum or Group. There are free classifieds on the Pages tab. You can post your information on your profile and even update your blog as often as you like.

We are not into censorship, so please don't make us ask you to leave. Be kind and unselfish - don't spam.
