he writings on the banners in Brooklyn last Saturday during a peace walk to protest the recent gun violence across the city read, “Enough of us killing us.” Under the leadership of Kenny Carter, president of ‘The Fathers Alive In The Hood Organization’ several community organizations participated in the march at the Bedford-Stuyvesant housing complex in Brooklyn where a 3-year-old boy was grazed in the leg by bullets earlier this month. The number of violent crimes in the United States dropped significantly last year, to what appeared to be the lowest rate in nearly 40 years, a development that was considered puzzling partly because it ran counter to the prevailing expectation that crime would increase during a recession. The news was not as positive in New York City, however. After leading a long

We Need Sustainable ‘People Power’ to Fight Crime
decline in crime rates, the city saw increases in all four types of violent lawbreaking— murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault—including a nearly 14 percent rise in murders. Several communities including Brooklyn, Bronx, Mount Vernon, Queens appear to be experiencing increased criminal activities including murder. In most areas people are becoming uncomfortable, as their communities appear to be unsafe. The Fathers Alive In The Hood Organization should therefore be commended and supported for highlighting the increasing number of violence and criminal attacks on the people. Call us alarmist, but in recent weeks, we have noted the increasing number of people who have been robbed, wounded or murdered in several communities of New York City and Westchester.

It would appear that most people are not aware of what is going on in their neighborhoods and the authority is moving too slowly to address the issues. Crime rate may be down in New York State overall, but members of the Black and Latino communities are becoming fearful and worried for their lives as brothers and sisters are being murdered, raped or robbed frequently. Street marches provide good publicity, but the real action must come from members of the neighborhood who should play a sincere and proactive role to stop crime. While we are pressuring the NYPD and the policy makers to provide the resources and the protection, the sustainable results will only come with the people’s participation. We need sustainable ‘people power’ to fight crime with genuine actions and not words.

o say that Facebook, the social networking site which now rules our lives, is here to stay would be an understatement. Our days and nights are spent snooping through our “Friends” list, or wanna be friends, peeking into the lives of 900 people whom we have never, and will never meet. Looking at pictures for no reason whatsoever, other than just to be nosey. Facebook or “Fassbook, as many Jamaican’s mockingly refer to the site as, has also created many a problems amongst workers and their employers, friends, and even amongst married couples and future couples to be. Many women have also been complaining that Facebook, along with texting and emailing of course, has also contributed to the decline in romance, passion and genuine chivalry from possible male suitors. Now, instead of a phone call, men are now “ poking ”you instead, to get your attention. Oh, the lovely, lovely sound of a poke or a ping on Facebook, versus the ring of a telephone. Not only that, but the excessive amount of flirting and unwise cheating that occurs on Facebook, has led to many breakups. Of course one cannot, and should not blame any social networking site, whether it is Twitter, Facebook, Stumble, Linkedin or any other site for that matter for the demise of relationships these days: as the intention of the user is the key, but it certainly does not help to have so many options. Many people, myself included, use Facebook particularly to promote my business ventures, connect with friends, and network with others. Facebook was a great marketing tool to push my book, “Whose Vagina Is It, Really?” as my connection with others from months ago let the cat out of the bag as we say. However, I like many women and even men, sometimes become aggravated by a ping, or a poke and often times go offline, just to avoid the unwanted advances. I cringe when I receive unwanted notices from men

people are talking...! people are talking...! Romance, as we know it, is dead!
but why hurt the poor woman’s feelings? “Do you not live together as a couple?” I asked him, trying my best not call him the cruel names that popped up in my head.”Yu know how it go man Sandy,” he typed back to me as fast as he could. “It is what it is.” “No, Donovan,” I typed back to him. “It is not what it is with me,” as I quickly logged off, telling him that I had to go. The nerve of him! Gone are the good old days when love reigned supreme and men picked up the phone to call or even send you flowers, to ask if “you could be so kind as to go out on a date with them.” Nowadays, a, “Mama, you look

whom I know are in committed relationships. One particular gentleman, whose profile picture shows him sitting with his hands around his girlfriend in a very long and loving kiss, had the nerve to ask me, “If the thongs on my book cover was mine, and if I could wear it for him when I came to his city?” He also went on to ask if I could, “model one of my thongs from my new underwear line for him?” Appalled and disgusted, I then asked, “So, excuse Donovan, aren’t you with Mindy”-of course this is not her real name,

hot in that dress,” or a poke or a tweet should surely entice you to flirt with them. As a single gal however, my status at most times read, “Do not poke me or ping me please! If you would like to reach me, please email me at sandydaley88@hotmail.com or use my number, if you have it, if you wish to talk!” I am not your Facebook mistress, girl on the side, or girl who deserves nothing from you but conversations between 9am and 5pm, while you are at work, stealing your employer’s billable hours during the day!” Crap, was that a ping I just heard while typing this? I forgot to go offline! Ugh!

ood afternoon Ms. Daley, I read your article in the Street Hype Newspaper, editorial section pertaining to the contemporary black woman being single in America. Now I found your article rather interesting, however, the reality for the vast majority of black woman being single in my opinion would be the following dynamics. The black women’s ability to be a drama queen: the fact that many black women are in a perpetual state of anger and bitterness is one of the reasons many of them are single. The contemporary black man would not seek a woman to be his life partner to be one who has unchecked schizophrenia, which many black woman display today. "The Mad Black Woman" had been a marketable selling piece amongst your demographic (black woman) lunacy abound as you laugh at the satirical antics of Tyler Perry in drag. The black woman today lacks the ability to be refined, and feminine instead we see an unfeminine, troubled woman who questions her life choices and lives vicariously through the drama of "Basketball wives."

LETTER TO THE EDITOR I would never date another black woman!




Bronx: 34-year-old male from the Bronx stated an unknown assailant stabbed him early Tuesday morning at approximately 5:30AM, while walking on West 1st Street in the vicinity of South 15th Avenue in Mount Vernon.

I as a Caribbean-American man was married to a black woman of Caribbean origin. We subsequently divorced and I am glad to claim that I have been dating non-black woman, i.e. white, Asian, Hispanic and other races. I have experienced a more refined behavior in those women, and I have decided to never date a black woman again. My fiancé is Chinese and is quite a beautiful woman of personality and looks. As noted, 42% of U.S. Black woman have never been married, which is double the number of white woman who are married. Interesting statistic don’t you think? Well as a Jamaican man who has always preferred fair skinned women (Caucasian and Asian), I consider black women are not the norm for beauty. I would pick Katy Perry over Rhianna any day. Good day Miss Daley. Your picture looks nice in the newspaper as a pretty “Jamaican Brownin,” but too dark for my taste. Happy 50th Jamaican independence anniversary. Big up hottest Jamaican woman ever, TAMI CHYN. I am, Marka Walker marka.walker24@yahoo.com

Stephen Dawkins (l) export manager at Wisynco, Jamaica WI shakes the hand of Haywood Hawthorne, vice-president of manufacturing at Golden Krust to seal the deal between the two companies, while enjoying each other’s products. Bigga soft drink manufacturer Wisynco recently signed a landmark agreement that will see the leading Jamaican soda brand Bigga being distributed system-wide through Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery & Grill - the largest Caribbean franchise chain in the United Sates. This partnership between Wisynco and Golden Krust will enhance the value of Golden Krust’s menu offerings to its customer base, consisting of nearly two million Caribbean nationals residing in North America, by offering an authentic Jamaican beverage. It marks the first time that a Jamaican carbonated beverage has pursued this level of distribution in North America. Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery & Grill has over 120 branches across nine US states.


The victim was transported to Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx and treated for a non-life threatening injury. The Suspect was described as a Male, Black, 5 foot 7 inches tall, weighing 180 pounds, and having dreadlocks.

Continued from page 1 She was partially covered in a filthy blanket and wearing a dirty shirt. She was also extremely emaciated and dehydrated. There was garbage surrounding the deceased and the house was filled with thousands of maggots. The victim was removed to the morgue and an investigation into the death commenced. The cause of death was found to have been starvation, dehydration, infection and stage four bed sores. The defendant was subsequently arrested by Greenburgh Police.

“This defendant was the principal caregiver for his elderly mother. Instead of reaching out for help, he consciously ignored her declining physical and mental health, leaving her unattended for hours at a time. His total abdication of responsibility resulted in utterly abhorrent and deplorable conditions in the home and the ignominious death of his mother,” said District Attorney Janet DiFiore after the jury’s verdict. Sentencing will be on August 7th, 2012. The defendant faces a maximum fifteen years in state prison.



en. Charles Schumer believes the government needs to take action as the number of whooping cough cases has tripled in New York State from last year. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there have been more than 1,200 cases in the state so far this year, with nearly 200 in the city. The CDC also says the country is headed for its worst year for whooping cough in more than 50 years. "I am urging the Center for Disease control to put in place a threepart plan that makes free vaccines more readily available at hospitals, doctor's offices and community health clinics, that targets adults that haven't been vaccinated in years and ensures that we have ample supply of the vaccine and a distribution plan in place," Schumer said. Whooping cough is caused by a bacterial infection and is particularly dangerous to children. It gets its name because of the "whooping" sound that can be heard when people cough.

Bronx: grand jury has indicted Lisette Bamenga for allegedly murdering her two young children, Bronx District Attorney Robert T. Johnson announced on Friday (July 13).

Bamenga remains hospitalized and is being held without bail.

Queens: Queens’s man is facing three to six years in prison after pleading guilty to a series of thefts from passengers in the terminals at John F. Kennedy International Airport. The man, Frederick McDonald, 46, of Far Rockaway, who had previously been convicted several times for thefts at the airport, admitted to committing six more between last September and February. In each case, prosecutors said, Mr. McDonald targeted travelers who were preoccupied, including one who was paying a taxi driver and another who was buying a ticket. “Traveling through the airports is stressful enough these days without having to worry that if you turn your back for a moment a thief who is lurking about will steal your luggage,” Richard A. Brown, the Queens district attorney, said in a statement on Wednesday. “This is exactly how the defendant operated.” McDonald found considerable riches in the luggage he stole, including laptops, computer tablets and thousands of dollars in cash. In one case, Mr. Brown said, Mr. McDonald pretended to be a Jet Blue porter and offered to help a woman by pushing her luggage cart. When the woman’s 5-year-old son fell down and she turned to attend to him, McDonald stole the cart, making off with an iPad, $6,000 in cash, a camera and two passports, Mr. Brown said. McDonald’s previously followed a similar script. In one instance, he pleaded guilty to stealing luggage from a woman who was waiting for the AirTrain in 2008; in another, he admit-

MANHATTAN: ight workers dismissed from the T&T Consulate in New York have written to Ambassador in Washington Neil Parsan and the Oilfields Workers’ Trade Union (OWTU) to be reinstated. The T&T Guardian understands that Parsan was compiling a report on the matter. The workers claim a high-ranking official at the consulate in New York “summarily” dismissed them. “We want our jobs back,” the workers demanded in a letter, dated July 18, to the OWTU. Former security officer Ashton Hosford, in a July 7 letter to Parsan, said he did not feel the official respected him. He said: “There was a post built specifically for security purposes and it was removed when (the official) came...I was given a wooden table and chair.” The dismissed workers are: Susan Butcher-David—12 years’ service; Angelina Ramlal—seven years; Judy Greaves—five years; Michael Brathwaite—23 years; Ashton Horsford— 18 years; Cherylann Etienne—three years April Sturgeon—nine months; and Charmaine Anderson-Smith—seven months.

(CNS): oth the leader of the opposition and the independent member for North Side have called on the premier to listen to the people and implement one man, one vote in single member constituencies for the 2013 election. Releasing statements on Friday evening in response to the premier’s comments on Thursday regarding a new committee to examine the voting system, both men said the people had already indicated what they wanted. Alden McLaughlin said a significant majority of voters made it plain that they want single member constituencies and the premier should respect the voice of the people. “We do not need more discussions, we do not need more committees, we do not need more campaigning or another referendum. All that is required is a simple amendment to the Elections Law,” said the opposition leader in response to the premier’s latest idea of introducing nine double-member constituencies.

How will the new directive be implemented? Individuals who are not in removal proceedings or who are subject to a final order of removal will need to submit a request for a review of their case and supporting evidence to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Individuals may request deferred action if they meet the eligibility criteria. In the coming weeks, USCIS

Who is eligible to receive deferred action under the Department’s new directive? Pursuant to the Secretary’s June 15, 2012 memorandum, in order to be eligible for deferred action, individuals must: • Have come to the United States under the age of sixteen; -Have continuously resided in the United States for at least five years preceding June 15, 2012 and are present in the United States on June 15, 2012; • Currently be in school, have graduated from high school, have obtained a general education development certificate, or are honorably discharged veterans of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States; • Have not been convicted of a felony offense, a significant misdemeanor offense, multiple misdemeanor offenses, or otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety; • Not be above the age of thirty. Individuals must also complete a background check and, for those individuals who make a request to USCIS and are not subject to a final order of removal, must be 15 years old or older.

eferred action is a discretionary determination to defer removal action of an individual as an act of prosecutorial discretion. Deferred action does not confer lawful status upon an individual. In addition, although an alien granted deferred action will not be considered to be accruing unlawful presence in the United States during the period deferred action is in effect, deferred action does not absolve individuals of any previous or subsequent periods of unlawful presence. Under existing regulations, an individual who has been granted deferred action is eligible to receive employment authorization for the period of deferred action, provided he or she can demonstrate “an economic necessity for employment.” Deferred action can be terminated at any time at the agency’s discretion or renewed by the agency.

will outline and announce the procedures by which individuals can engage in this process. No. The grant of deferred action under this new directive does not provide an individual with permanent lawful status or a pathway to obtaining permanent lawful status. Only the Congress, acting through its legislative authority, can confer the right to permanent lawful status.

Does the process result in permanent lawful status for beneficiaries?

Does this policy apply to those who are subject to a final order of removal? Yes. An individual subject to a final order of removal who can demonstrate that he or she meets the eligibility criteria can request a review of his or her case and receive deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal. All cases will be considered on an individualized basis. This process is not yet in effect and requests should not be submitted at this time. In the coming weeks, USCIS will outline and announce the procedures by which individuals can engage in this process. Beginning June 18, individuals may call the USCIS hotline at 1-800-375-5283, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., with questions or to request more information on the new process. Website: www.uscis.gov.

If an individual’s period of deferred action is extended, will individuals need to re-apply for an extension of their employment authorization? Yes. If an individual applies for and receives an extension of the period for which he or she was granted deferred action, he or she must also request an extension of his or her employment authorization.

Why will deferred actions only be granted for two years? Grants of deferred action will be issued in increments of two years. At the expiration of the two year period, the grant of deferred action can be renewed, pending a review of the individual case.

Kingston, Jamaica: amaica’s full track and field delegation of 47 athletes and four coaches to the games of the 30th Olympiad in London, which starts later this month, has been announced. Eight days after the national senior track and field championships ended, the nation's athletic squad comprising 24 males and 23 females to the London Olympics was finally disclosed by the Jamaica Olympic association on Monday. This is five less athletes, than that of the 52 that were named for the Beijing games in 2008. The team is headed by reigning Olympic champions Usain Bolt, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Veronica Campbell Brown and Melaine Walker along with world 100 metres champion Yohan Blake. The cut back on officials in the athletic delegation is evident at glance with only four coaches making the trip this time around, down from five. They are Bertland Cameron, Fitz Coleman, Maurice Westney and Maurice Wilson who served as head coach to the Daegu world championships last year. Michael Clarke and Edward Hector were omitted from the Beijing coaching staff. There is also one less manager - down from four to three. President of the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association Dr. Warren Blake will served as head of the three-member medical team. Jamaica will also be represented in three other sporting disciplines in London.

amaican dancehall entertainer, Glendale Goshia “Busy Signal” Gordon who was extradited to the United States last month on Tuesday pleaded guilty to one count of failure to appear in court. Busy Signal admitted he left the United States 10 years ago before his scheduled trial on drug charges. He could face between 12 to 18 months in prison and a fine of $3,000-$30,000. His attorney, Bill Mauzy, told The Associated Press he' would ask for a sentence of time served. Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew Dunne declined to say how much time prosecutors would seek. A sentencing date has not been set. Busy Signal was charged in the United States in February 2002 with two counts related to cocaine trafficking, which carried a sentence of at least 15 years in prison. He fled the U.S. before his trial was to begin in Minnesota and a warrant was issued for his arrest. However he returned to Jamaica and began a successful music career until his detention in London in May this year. He was accused of traveling with false documents, including a passport that listed a different name. He returned to Jamaica and was arrested. Gordon waived extradition on the failure to appear count. Mauzy said the extradition process was limited to that count alone. Because of that, Dunne said,

while the cocaine charges still exist, they were not a part of this process. The United States doesn't have jurisdiction to prosecute Gordon on those counts at this time. Frank said once Gordon serves his sentence, he'll be given 45 days to return to Jamaica. If he remains in the U.S. after that, he could be arrested on the drug charges.

wner of the popular Harlem based Sylvia's Restaurant, Sylvia Woods died last Thursday at her home in Westchester County. She was 86. Her family announced the death, citing no cause. The statement said Woods had been ill with Alzheimer’s disease for the last few years. Local and national politicians, international celebrities, tourists, epicures and ordinary neighborhood residents frequented the restaurant. Her death came a few hours before she was to receive an award from Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg at a reception at Gracie Mansion commemorating the 50th anniversary of Sylvia’s Restaurant. There was a moment of silence before the award presentation; a family friend accepted it on her behalf. Sylvia’s Restaurant opened on Aug. 1, 1962 at Lenox Avenue near 127th Street, offering soul-food staples like ribs, hot cakes, corn bread and fried chicken. The immense popularity of its dishes earned Ms. Woods the sobriquet the Queen of Soul Food. Rev. Al Sharpton,

he reggae dancehall singer songwriter and musician, M-Gee is raising eyebrows with his stellar voice and reality breaking songs. From Jamaica, residing in Philadelphia, M-Gee is creating an international presence with the popularity of his songs. His hit singles “Never Come See” and “No Tail” has been predominantly dominating the airwaves within the United States and Jamaica. The “No Tail” video was released in April 2012, which has been televised on Jamaica’s hit stations such as Hype TV, CVM and REtv including the Caribbean International Network in the U.S. The Jamaica Star and the Jamaican Observer have notably recognized his songs where MGee was the featured entertainer. His career has made an astounding impact on the reggae and dancehall scenes. While M-Gee songs are well recognized on the dancehall scene in the U.S. and Jamaica, the versatility of his talent is captured in the quality and choice of the songs that he has written.


“Life is Not a Joke” is a cultural type of song, which is based on the concept of encouraging others to focus on positive accomplishments in life. His fan base is rapidly developing, as M-Gee is the hottest sensation on the scene. The people are clinging to his music, as they are often able to relate to the words as written by M-Gee. The lyrics to his music are

ou can help develop charitable qualities in your child by first practicing what your preach. Becoming involved in charity efforts is a great way of showing how helping others is considered responsible behavior and actually brings positive feelings of relief and peace in light of such a tragedy. Many young children may become anxious as a result of, frequently hearing about or seeing vivid images of suffering; it is always a great idea to limit this exposure. However, children can also get a sense of empowerment that comes from feeling that they made a difference in the lives of those who are less fortunate. Particularly for young children, discuss the differences between Haiti and the United States in regard to tangible resources, such as hospitals and money. This should deepen your child’s understanding of how natural disasters (earthquakes) could further destroy a country even after the earthquakes have ended. On the other hand, adolescents may be more directive and want to assist, but

may not know where or how to begin. Parents mistakenly assume they have little influence on their teenagers, but this just applies to their choice in peers and music. In other areas, such as religion and political beliefs, parents have considerable influence on teens’ values and beliefs. Thus, get involve and encourage your teenager’s desire to find an organization that interests him/her. For example, your teen might prefer to donate to a more “hip” foundation that’s featured on a music channel or that is organized by a famous musician or rapper. In addition, they may want to donate through text or their school rather than an organization you are involved with. Remember, the important thing is that they are interested in affecting their world in a positive way. You can always influence their critical thinking skills by helping them find out information on the charity such as, the percent of proceeds that go to Haiti or what the organization buys with the monetary donations.

close look at workers in many of the city’s summer camps, supermarkets, public offices and some private businesses will reveal a lot more young faces this summer. Thanks to the hard work of Mayor Ernest D. D. Davis and the Mount Vernon Youth Bureau some young people have been placed throughout the city through the Mount Vernon Youth Bureau’s Summer Employment Programs. Despite shrinking resources and competing interests within the city, youth employment has remained a priority for the current administration. The city has worked hard to give over 222 youth an opportunity to earn some money this summer and by the enthusiasm displayed by the newly employed workers, the hard work was worth it. “Summer youth employment not only prepares youth for futures in the workforce, but offers an alternative to illegal methods of earning money. Summer jobs in the city are extremely important for the local economy since they typically reinvest money earned into local businesses”, said Damia Harris, Youth Bureau Executive Director. On June 28, 2012, Mayor Davis greeted a packed City Council Chambers to welcome this year’s program participants. He urged the young people to work hard and do

their best because what they learn now will be the framework for their future in tomorrow's forkforce. George Brown, City Clerk, swore in the city’s newest hires and encouraged the young people to uphold their duties and to take their temporary summer jobs seriously as they represent the city. “Initially, the forecast was very bleak for summer youth employment,” said Mayor Davis. “However, by leveraging grant funds, private sector initiatives and paid stipend programs, the Bureau was able to provide opportunities for some of the city’s young people in a wide spectrum of fields. We remain hopeful opportunities will increase to serve our youth throughout the year and encourage employers to continue making opportunities available for young people.”

Dear Divine Diva: efore we went on vacation, we trusted our 15-year-old neighbor "Mia" to feed our cat, take in the mail and water the plants. While we were away, she invited some of her friends and their friends to our home. Some of them she knew by their nicknames and only for a short time. When Mia's parents learned about the party, they forbade her to go. However, she failed to mention she had left our door unlocked for strangers to enter. It was obvious when we returned that people had been there because things were out of place and garbage was left behind. We're missing about $100 worth of beer and liquor, $50 in change and $150 in old coins. Mia claims she doesn't know who was there, and her friends aren't being honest. I'd like to get the police involved. Mia, her parents and my husband think I'm "unfair" for wanting to involve the police. I believe a crime has been committed and don't understand why I'm being treated like the bad guy when I'm the victim. The police have told me Mia would not get into trouble as long as she cooperates. Am I overreacting?--MP, Pleasantville. Dear MP: I don't think so. The party animals who invaded your home are guilty of trespass-

uilding relationships is essential for having a fulfilling life, but – as we all know – it’s not without its problems. Even close friendships could have problems every now and then. That’s why it’s important to learn about relationship problems and how to overcome them. While there are many relationship problems that could happen, I believe they boil down to just two. These are the basic prob-

Basic Relationships Problems
1. Misunderstanding Misunderstanding is perhaps the most common problem in relationships. Sometimes your friends misinterpret what you do or say. Or it’s you who misinterpret them. Depending on the maturity of the people involved, such misunderstanding could be lems that cause other problems in relationships. Here they are:

Dear Divine Diva: am recently widowed. Men I work with and the husbands of some of my friends have been hitting on me. They'll ask me out for a meal, give me big hugs -- and a couple of them have even kissed me on the mouth. I don't lead them on, and besides, I'm a chubby great-grandmother. What drives men to do this? Do they think they're "consoling" me? When these things happen, I act as if they never did and go on as usual because to do otherwise would be hurtful to

My friends hitting on me

Dear Granny: There isn't a blanket explanation for the behavior you have described. Some of your friends' husbands may be trying to console you; others may have lecherous intentions. As to your male co-workers, big hugs and kisses are a no-no in the workplace and you should tell them so. If these incidents happen repeatedly with the same people, you will have to speak up and say they're making you uncomfortable. And as to your friends' husbands, try this: Stiff-arm them when you greet them with a sweet smile, then turn your cheek when you see them coming at you. -Always Divine Diva

Check out the hot new catalogue at WWW.SANDYDALEY.COM and put in your order today, or email Sandy Daley at WHOSEVAGINAISITREALLY@GMAIL.COM. We ship all orders pronto!

2. Selfishness Another common problem in relationships is selfishness. Perhaps both parties understand what the other party needs, but one or both of them are not willing to give it. They prefer to just keep it for themselves. In this case, the problem is lack of action instead of lack of understanding. For example, it takes time to build relationships but we may be too busy to provide time for others. While we can’t generalize the case, being busy could be a form of selfishness. Just wanting to be understood without trying to understand is also a form of selfishness. These two basic problems cause many other relationship problems. Being judgmental, for instance, is often caused by selfishness. We want others to meet our expectations and we blame them when they don’t. Anger could be caused my misunderstanding. You may think that your friend does something bad to you while she actually doesn’t intent to. Perhaps she does you good but you misinterpret it. Misunderstanding causes us to misinterpret positive as negative.

solved quickly or it could open the way to more serious problems. Misunderstanding is caused either by lack of quality or quantity in communication. You could spend a lot of time to communicate with your friends (for example, with your roommate), but if the quality of the communication is low then there is a good chance that misunderstanding will happen. The problem could also happen because you and your friend don’t communicate often enough. If both parties are busy, they may not have the chance to communicate what they need or want which may eventually lead to misunderstanding.

ARIES (Mar. 21 – Apr. 19): You're probably feeling more positive about what you are doing with your life now, but you may be afraid of moving too fast and missing something important. TAURUS (Apr. 20 – May 20): The more you try to hold on to your original plan, the harder it will be to resolve the current tension. Nevertheless, it's challenging to decide how far to go in reviewing and revising your agenda. You could end up wasting precious resources by making the wrong choice. GEMINI (May 21 – Jun. 20): You can easily run circles around everyone else now because you are at the top of your game. Others may find you irresistible today but it's crucial not to overplay your hand. If you appear too confident, you might attract the very same attention you were attempting to avoid. CANCER (Jun. 21–Jul. 22): Opening your heart to a trustworthy companion today could make you a bit uncomfortable. As sensitive as you are, try not to get too caught up in the response you receive to your emotional disclosure. LEO (July 23–August 22): Expressing your needs could create problems if you seem too demanding. Concentrating on your desires prevents you from being fully present in a relationship, and you may not even notice if another person is already offering you love and support. VIRGO (August 23–Sept. 22): What someone doesn't say now can grab your attention, as if the unspoken words have additional power because they are kept secret. Your fear of the unknown might create a simple misunderstanding, especially if you assume the worst. But don't try to fast talk your way around an awkward situation. LIBRA (Sept. 23–Oct.22): Someone comes through for you today, offering an enjoyable escape or a more meaningful chance to share what's on your mind. If there's nothing already on your social calendar, pick up the phone, call a few friends and see what kind of fun is possible. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): You might try to present yourself in a more official manner now. However, you could inadvertently forget about your position and share more of yourself today than you intend. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 – Dec.21): You're encouraged by what's happening now, but there is still missing information out there for you to uncover. Going into denial about the evidence is not a good idea, either; it's just that the facts may not be as clear as you like. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Your good intentions aren't enough because your brain is buzzing with exciting ideas. Instead of trying to limit your expression by settling into comfortable old routines, try a radical new approach. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): You may prefer to do a project on your own today, but someone plays an important role in your day. This could be frustrating since you will need to make compromises in order to earn the support of others. PISCES (Feb. 19 – Mar. 20): You might feel as if you're falling short today, especially if others are overly critical of what you're doing. Someone's harsh judgment may say more about his or her insecurity than about your behavior.

e all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths. It's not as easy as you think. It's important to know how and when to eat. What is the correct way of eating fruits? It means not eating fruits after your meals! fruits should be eaten on an empty stomach. If you eat fruit like that, it will play a major role to detoxify your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities. Fruit is the most important food. Let's say you eat two slices of bread and

Fruits -the Secret of Beauty, Longevity and Good Health
then a slice of fruit. The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it is prevented from doing so. In the meantime the whole meal rots and ferments and turns to acid. The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil..... So please eat your fruits on an empty stomach or before your meals! You have heard people complaining - every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats up, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet etc - actually all this will not arise if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach. The fruit mixes with the putrefying other food and produces gas and hence you will bloat! Graying hair, balding, nervous outburst, and dark circles under the eyes all these will NOT happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach. There is no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruits become alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter. If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the Secret of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal weight.




ith a history spanning the better part of a century, Grand Central Terminal has long stood as a symbol of the promise that entry into New York City holds. Likewise, the American Red Cross has long served as a symbol of hope and humanitarian aid to those in need. On Thursday, August 9, 2012, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., these beacons of promise and hope will join together for a historic inaugural blood drive in Vanderbilt Hall of Grand Central Terminal, 89 E. 42nd Street. The blood drive is hosted by AECOM, a provider of professional technical and management support services to a broad range of markets, including transportation, facilities, environmental, energy, water and government. “AECOM and our employees have a long-standing history of partnering with, and supporting, the Red Cross,” said AECOM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John M. Dionisio. “We are delighted to sponsor such an important event for the New York City metro area.” The blood drive comes at a crucial time for the Red Cross, as summer months can take a toll on the blood supply, with high schools and colleges on break and many potential donors pursuing summer activities. Unfortunately, patients don’t get a holiday from needing blood products. The need is constant, and donations must be continual to provide for hospital patients in need. Yet, despite this constant need, only 5 percent of the eligible population actually donates blood. “Blood must be on hand when it’s needed to help save a life, whether it be a young mother who needs blood during a difficult childbirth, a friend or family member needing blood during cancer treatments or the victim of a traumatic injury who needs several units of blood in the emergency room,” said Donna M. Morrissey, Director, Communications, American Red Cross Blood Services – Northeast Division.

We need $5 M to purchase A Linear Accelerator Machine for Jamaica


am appealing to everyone especially our Caribbean brothers and sisters. I have been asked to purchase a Linear Accelerator Machine for Cornwall Regional Hospital in Montego Bay, Jamaica costing approximately US $5 Million. I met with the Minister of Health, Dr. Fenton Ferguson a few weeks ago. He asked if I can purchase two machines as Kingston needs one also.
If 500,000 people give a one-time donation of $10, we will be closer to our goal.

Please send donations to Vincent HoSang Family Foundation (VHFF), 117 Route 303, Suite B, Tappan, NY 10983. Your donation is tax deductible.

They may also want your help to refine current products and services or to solve new problems that they may be facing. Pursue these potential opportunities aggressively, as they will bind you closer to these best customers and point the way to new product and service offerings that can then be offered to your entire customer base.

he Church is the Body of Christ, not a particular building by the side of the road. Actually you are now a member of the Body of Jesus Christ. Christ is its Head. So, it is very important that you find a good Church to attend, one that is Bible fed and Holy Spirit led. The following are some of what should be taught and preached in the Church. • Salvation through the Blood of Jesus Christ should be preached. Any Church teaching Salvation by any means other than the shed Blood of JESUS CHRIST, in other words, what the Lord did on Calvary’s cross, in order to redeem humanity, is promoting something contrary to the word of God. (Math.26 :28)(Acts 20:28 ) • The Rapture of the Church should be taught and preached. This refers to the time when the Church shall be taken out of this world in order to be with the Lord. The worthy will escape the great tribulation; this is the promise of the Rapture. (Luke 21 : 36 ) It could happen at any moment now. • Divine Healing according to the word of God should be preached. (James 5:14 ) I believe that the Bible teaches that Jesus heals today, as He did in the past. • The Church should teach and practice the Baptism with the Holy Spirit, with the evidence of speaking with other Tongues, which is available to all believers, and is received after conversion.(Acts 2:4 ) (Isa. 28: 11-12 ) • A victorious, overcoming Christian life should be preached (Rom. 6:11 ) (Rev. 2:7) This means victory over sin in every capacity.

Understanding the Church and its Membership !
By Rev. Dr. A, Roy Jacobs, Pastoral Counselor & Columnist iroy1470@yahoo.com


• The soon and eminent return of our Lord to Earth, to reign as King of kings And Lord of lords should be preached to us, personally, practically, powerfully, prophetically, purposely and positively from the Bible in order to feed our faith and starve our doubts. Preaching about Christ without going through the Cross is simple talking about a murder, but preaching Christ by the way of the Cross is preaching boldly of our everlasting redemption by God’s plan through His Son Jesus Christ. It is said that there are two-types of people in the Church today. The prodigal son (meaning back-sliders) and the Elder Brothers (meaning the self-righteous ) If this is true, these are they who are hiding under the covering of church membership, who must know it is time for them to come out and be counted HOT for Christ. Christ said He has no use for the luke-warm in His letter to the Churches recorded in the book of Revelation. He who has an ear; let him hear what the Holy Spirit says unto the Churches and through this writer who love you and want you to be saved.
