Wanted: a comprehensive program to manage Obesity

besity, a medical condition


in which excess body fat accumulates to the extent that it
negatively affects ones overall
health, is one of the biggest
scourges facing American. It is a
pressing concern because of reduced life expectancy and host of
chronic illnesses.
The Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention has consistently sounded the alarm about
the increasing number of Americans who are overweight. And
the numbers continue to rise.
People are considered obese
when their body mass index
(BMI) -- a measurement obtained by dividing a person's
weight by the square of the person's height--exceeds 30 kg/m2.
Americans are always
among the most overweight people in the world. However, the
rate of obesity started leveling
off in about 2004 as several national efforts to promote healthy
lifestyles were implemented.

Several studies published in


the United States show a correlation between obesity and soda
and fruit drinks. The consumption of soda and fruit drinks has
more than doubled since the
1970s.
One study points out that,
"drinking sugary drinks was affecting genes that regulate
weight and increased the genetic
predisposition of a person to gain
weight.
While people from all races
are affected, the obesity rate is
higher among women, especially
black women in poor communities. This is of concerns to us as
obesity causes several chronic
health problems, including Type
II diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, osteoarthritis, liver
disease, sleep apnea, depression
and other medical conditions that
affect mortality and morbidity.
Already struggling to meet
the needs of families, African
Americans are eating themselves

patrick@streethype.net

to death with the consumption of


relatively inexpensive and easily
available fast foods such as hamburgers, French fries, bacon, and
doughnuts, which are high in fat
and carbohydrates.

A 2007 study found that the


Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly known
as food stamps), which provides food subsidies for women
and children, was associated
with a 50 percent increased in
obesity rate among female
adults.
The program supports some
1.8 million low-income New
Yorkers.
While, we must take personal responsibilities and manage our eating habits, it would
appear that the government
(state, city and federal) should do
more to help people manage their
weight.
This calls for a comprehensive education and training program, as well as regulations to
prevent greedy companies from
exploiting innocent consumers
with crappy and bad foods.
Obesity is not just an economic burden on taxpayers, it is
also destroying families!

People Are Talking...!

Stop Funding the Kindergarten to Prison Pipeline

Dear Editor:
e just started a petition titled "Tell the U.S. Department of Education to Stop
Funding the Kindergarten to
Prison Pipeline" Here's why this
is important:
We have a crisis across the
country with school arrests and
suspensions.
We all were horrified to see a
South Carolina police officer assault and handcuff a 16 year
black student in her classroom.
But the school-to-prison pipeline
starts the disparate treatment of
our youngest black students in
school. Black children make up
18% of preschoolers, but 48% of
pre-school suspensions.
Overall black students are 4
times more likely than their
white peers to be suspended.
Latino, LGBT and special needs
students are also more likely to
be suspended. The data is clear
suspensions lead to dropouts,
which often lead to prison.
My 10-year-old son Jamir
has faced multiple school suspensions when he was
a student at Success Academy
charter schools in New York
City. He was routinely asked to
be picked up or was suspended
for minor infractions like being
too emotional or not going up the
school stairs in a timely manner.
My son has special needs and he
can act out when not provided
the proper supports, but Success
Academy did nothing to help
him.

I finally had to withdraw my


son. Jamir and I are not alone.
On October 29th, the New York
Times reported on a Success
Academy Got to Go list of students the school wanted to get rid
of. These students faced numerous suspensions as early as
kindergarten and most of the parents withdrew their children as a
result.
Moskowitz has boasted on national TV and in a prominent
opinion piece in the Wall Street
Journal about her harsh discipline policies including her suspension of kindergarteners. Last
year one of her schools issued 44
out-of-school suspensions to just
203 kindergarteners and first
graders.
But because Moskowitz has
the backing of hedge fund billionaires who use their political
muscle to buy influence for her
and other zero tolerance charter
schools in Washington, D.C.,
nothing is being done about it. In

fact Eva Moskowitz has used her


political connections to rake in
over $37 million in funding from
the U.S. Department of Education. She was just awarded $13.4
million of $335 million that the
Department awarded to charter
schools across the country. If the

U.S. Department of Education is


going continue to fund Eva
Moskowitzs zero tolerance charter schools in New York, then
they will turn a blind eye to zero
tolerance charter schools across
the country.
We cannot allow the U.S.
government to fund a kindergarten to prison pipeline. That is
why I joined with the Alliance
for Quality Education and the
Urban Youth Collaborative to
ask you to send this petition to
U.S.
Secretary of Education Arne
Duncan calling on him to stop
funding the Kindergarten to
prison pipeline.
Thank you,

US obesity rates rising


among black women

4 STREET HYPE NEWSPAPER OCT 19-31-NOV 1-18, 2015

besity rates are rising again among


American adults, despite national efforts to promote healthy lifestyles. The obesity rate is higher among women, especially
black women in poor communities.
According to a recent study from the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,
using a national survey of about 5,000 people, the rates of obesity had been climbing
dramatically since the 1980s but started leveling off in about 2004.
This latest study means they are rising
again -- to nearly 38 percent in 2013-14, up
from about 32 percent a decade ago. NonHispanic white, non-Hispanic black and Hispanic adults and youth are experiencing
higher rates of obesity than their white counterparts, the study found.
Between black men and women, there
is a significant difference for rates of obesity: women's rates soar above men's at 57
percent compared to 38 percent.
Stacey Snelling, a nutritionist teaching
at American University, explains that socioeconomic forces determine the health status
of any group of people, especially the poor.
She also notes that the rise in obesity rates
could be because healthy eating campaigns
are losing their effectiveness. Over the past
10 years, much of the focus has been on food
and nutrition for keeping obesity at bay, but
now people were "losing attention" to that
message, she said, and perhaps now was
time to focus on exercise.

"Our initial reaction to the obesity


epidemic -- limited sugary beverages and fried food -- only
works to a point," Snelling
said. The consumption of fizzy
drinks has fallen in recent years
and fast-food chains now offer
healthier menus, but these kinds
of public health problems are
complex, she adds.
National campaigns
have been aimed at lowering obesity
rates in the US,
such as First
Lady Michelle
Obama's "Let's
Move" campaign, which
offers programming
for exercise and healthy eating among
youths.
The United States has focused on cutting out fried foods and sugary drinks in past
years. Many companies have introduced
things like treadmill desks and incentives to
exercise with pedometers and staff-wide
contests.
But not all have taken a stake in employees' health. "With adults, the corporate
environment has not changed as dramatically as schools have," she said.

WWW.STREETHYPENEWSPAPER.COM

Obesity prevalence was found to


be much higher for adult women
than adult men 38 percent
compared to 34 percent.
Study author Cynthia Ogden
told the BBC that this study
marked the first time in many
years that higher women's
obesity rates were statistically significant.
"That's kind of a
new finding,"
said Ogden.
" N o w ,
what's happened is
prevalence in
women
has gone
above what it was in men again."
Non-Hispanic whites, non-Hispanic
blacks and Hispanic adults and youths are
experiencing higher rates of obesity than
their white counterparts, the study found.
Between black men and women, there is a
significant difference for rates of obesity -women's rates soar above men's at 57 percent compared to 38 percent.
Socio-economic forces determine the
health status of any group of people,
Snelling said.

More cellphone
service and Wi-Fi
at subway stations

TA and Transit Wireless officials


say 37 additional underground stations have received a connectivity boost 21 in the Bronx and 16 in Manhattan.
Those stations include some major
hubs such as Lexington Av-53rd St, Lexington Av-59th St, 149th St-Grand Concourse, and 125th St.
With the latest stations coming online, there are a total of 146 stations on the
Transit Wireless network system-wide.
"It's good because when you're on the
subway and you want to make a call or
text, you can get through to people, one
straphanger said.
The agency says it is working on connecting the remaining stations in the
Bronx and Manhattan before moving on
to stations in Brooklyn.
The MTA hopes to have all 279 underground New York City subway stations
connected by 2017.
Wireless service is currently not
available when a train travels underground
and between stations.

warm affection to people, she said.

Up to press time, Street Hype was unable to confirm information for the funeral

Flights cheapest
53 days in advance

ccording to new global data from travel


search site momondo, Americans can
save money by booking flights at least 53
days in advance of their departure.
After analyzing 12.6 billion airfares
worldwide, momondo found that by booking
travel early just under two months in advance of departure consumers could save
an average of 26 percent on flight costs. Conversely, tickets are most expensive if travelers wait to book their trip on the day of
departure.
momondo also found that flight price
can vary widely depending on the day of the
week, with the cheapest departure fares typically found on Tuesdays and the most expensive fares on Saturdays. The average
flight cost difference between these days of
the week is 11.5 percent.
Avoid midday flights. According to
momondo, time of day is also important to
consider when booking. momondo's global
flight statistics show it is typically cheaper to
fly between the hours of 6 p.m. and 12 a.m.
Midday flights between the hours of 10 a.m.
and 3 p.m. are the most expensive overall, by
6 percent on average.

Guyana reaffirms Palestinian


statehood and Arab cooperation

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia:


uring his first visit to the Middle East as
president, to attend the fourth Arab South
America Summit (ASPA), and the first head
of state from Guyana to visit Saudi Arabia,
President David Granger reiterated his government's support of Palestinian statehood
and his countrys commitment to foster
stronger economic and political ties between
South America and the Arab world.
Granger's People National Congress
Party (PNC) has championed the Palestinian
cause since it came to power in the 1960s, and
hosted many Palestinian solidarity events in
Guyana.
Former PNC president of Guyana,
Forbes Burnham, threw Guyanas support behind the UN General Assembly vote that
equated Zionism with racism, cutting diplomatic relations with Israel, and supporting the
Arab oil embargo.
Such a position was incalculably expensive, according to Professor Festus Brotherson Jr.
Guyana was the first country in Latin
America and the Caribbean to recognize a
sovereign Palestinian dating back to this period.
Granger, in his address to the summit in
Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, reaffirmed his
deep "concern for the Palestinian people."

President Arrested

PARAMARIBO, Suriname:
Romano Meriba (31), the foster son of Surinames president Desi Bouterse, was arrested
on Friday in Paramaribo after he reported to
a police station. The Public Relations Department of the Suriname Police Force released
a statement confirming the arrest.
According to the police, Meriba has

robbery, murder, drug trafficking and money
laundering. Romano is believed to be a
member of the gang that was involved in a
robbery in Paramaribo-North, said the Suriname police.
The release further stated that Meriba
became a suspect after preliminary investigations revealed that his vehicle was involved in the armed robbery. A local
businessman was robbed of a large sum of
money last Monday.

Schneiderman on Monday announced the conviction and sentencing of Abdul
Jamil Khokhar and BMY
Foods, Inc., which together
owned and operated nine
Papa Johns franchises
throughout the Bronx.
Khokhar pled guilty to
failure to pay wages under
the New York Labor Law, a
misdemeanor, and BMY
Foods pled guilty to falsifying business records in the
first degree, an E felony.
Khokhar was sentenced to
spend 60 days in jail and to
pay $230,000 in restitution to
underpaid workers at his
Papa Johns franchises.
Wage theft is a crime
and a Papa Johns franchisee
is now going to jail for cheating his employees and trying
to cover it up, said Attorney

General Schneiderman. My
office will do everything in
its power to protect the rights
of New Yorks workers and
make sure that all employers
including fast food restaurants follow the law.
Both New York and federal law require employers to
pay workers at least the minimum wage for all hours
worked and overtime at oneand-one-half times their regular rate of pay for hours
worked in excess of forty in
any given workweek. New
Yorks current minimum
wage is $8.75 per hour, and
the federal minimum wage is
currently $7.25 per hour; employers in New York must
pay the higher rate.

LEGAL AFFAIRS
Frequently Asked Ethics Questions

Successive Adverse Representation

Q. When may a lawyer represent a client with interests adverse to those of a former client?

A. Successive representation is permitted when there is no


conflict between the interests of the former and current
clients (under Rule 1.9) or when written waiver of the conflict has been obtained. Under Rule 1.9, all conflicts arising
out of successive adverse representation may be waived by
informed consent, confirmed in writing by the former
client. But see N.Y. State 829 (oral waivers obtained before
April 1, 2009 need not subsequently be confirmed in writing).
Where successive representation is permitted, Rule 1.9
requires attorneys to refrain from disclosing the confidences
of their former clients or otherwise using them to the disadvantage of those clients. The following discussion pertains to lawyers in private practice only. Rule 1.11 governs
conflicts involving government lawyers and should be consulted for guidance in addressing conflicts in those circumstances.
Prior representation, Substantially related and materially adverse
In some instances, there may be a threshold question
of whether there has been a prior representation, i.e.,
whether the attorney formerly represented a person as a
client in an earlier matter.

Doping scandal puts


sport in dark place-Ennis-Hill

orld and Olympic champion Jessica


Ennis-Hill says athletics is in "a dark
place" after Russia was suspended over allegations of systematic doping.
"To have that huge shadow of doubt cast
is really disappointing," said the British heptathlete, 29.
Ennis-Hill came second to Russia's
Tatyana Chernova - later banned for two years
for doping - at the 2011 World Championships.
She has appealed to the IAAF to have her
silver medal upgraded to gold. Ennis-Hill's
coach Toni Minichiello is not sure Russia
should be banned from international competition.
"I'm not convinced that it is the right de-

cision," he said, citing the boycotts of the 1980


and 1984 Olympics by nations who were on
opposite sides in the Cold War. "I don't think
they achieved a great deal if I'm honest.
"I don't think it's an achievement for us
to be able to suspend a nation and then think
that everything is still rosy. What we have to
do is work with people and put in tougher
drug-testing regimes."
British sprinter Adam Gemili said banning the entire Russia athletics federation
would punish clean athletes from the country.
"I feel really bad for those guys that will
miss out if they do get totally suspended," he
said. "But the more people that are getting
caught, the cleaner the sport is, and I'm all for
a clean sport."

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka -West Indies ended their tour on a high with a
well-crafted victory over Sri Lanka in the
final T20 International on Wednesday night
at the Premadasa Stadium.
Led by allrounder Dwayne Bravo, the
Windies won by 23 runs. They batted first
and made 162-6 off 20 overs and then bowled
out the home team for 139 off the final ball.
Bravo hit a run-a-ball 31 in a crucial
fifth-wicket partnership of 41 with Denesh
Ramdin, who made 34 not out off just 22
balls.
Bravo returned to take career-best figures of 4-28 to better the 4-38 he took
against India at Lords in 2009.
Fast bowler Ravi Rampaul had good figures of 4-0-20-3. We won the game in the
field with some very good bowling at the top
and in the middle overs and some stunning

catches, captain Darren Sammy said. Overall it was a very spirited performance and it
is great to come away with something in this
tour.
Bravo was brilliant with bat and ball.
We planned it really well. We had positive
belief we would win the match here tonight.
We knew once we posted a competitive total
we would be able to defend it on that pitch.
We are very happy with the win and looking
for greater things ahead, Bravo said.
You look at my strike rate of 100... its
not all the time you will go for the big shots
and look to score at 140+ strike rate. My role
was the anchor and let the others bat around.
He added: Deneshs innings was very
important and gave us that momentum. My
run-a-ball 31 was like gold today. At the end
of the day we needed this win and Im happy
I contributed.

Westchester Knicks
Beats Red Claws

WHITE PLAINS:
he Westchester Knicks, the official NBA
Development League affiliate of the New
York Knickerbockers, beat the Maine Red
Claws (Boston Celtics affiliate) in thrilling
fashion for the NBA D-League season opener,
the final score 105-103.
The Knicks tipped off the season with hot
hands, running up the score 8-0 over Maine to
start. Westchester guard Sean Marshall made
the first basket of the year with a fade away
jumper, a glimpse of what the veteran would
offer throughout the game. Maine struggled to
find its shots, shooting just 21.1% and trailing
by as many as 12 in the first quarter.
The Red Claws nipped back in the second with the help of recent assignee James
Young who had 12 points in the quarter.
Though they passed the Knicks twice, it
would be the last time Maine would hold the
lead in the game.
Westchester guard Travis Trice II lit up
the third quarter with 10 points, seven of
which came as the Knicks went on a 9-0 run.
Maine struggled to find the magic from beyond the arc, hitting just 2-of-13 three point
attempts and Westchester cruised into the final
quarter with a 12 point lead.

Spirit & Harmony Festival in New York

By Kimmy Blair
Street Hype Writer
olo art exhibit debut of Summer Bhullar
and her new art genre named supreme
reality art, opened on Saturday (October
17) at Pound Ridge Library, 271 Westchester Avenue, Pound Ridge and runs
through November 28.
This new art genre will give a true
definition to art and redefine contemporary
art. It is the culmination of all human art
pursuits and processes so far. It takes the
view that art arises from love of the self to
feel and know the supreme reality hidden
behind life, by creating its beautiful qualities, says Bhullar.
Barbara Nessim, American artist, illustrator and educator describes Bhullars work
as, an original artist who comes to art quite
naturally. Her work moves through space
effortlessly while creating the energy released by the movements of her actions. She
has a rhythm of color that is uniquely hers.
I have seen no other artist that has created
artwork such as hers.
Currently, art experts categorized her
works under abstract expressionism and abstract impressionism. However, Bhullar

does not agree with this, she feels her work


is objective as real as the concrete realities
of the phenomenal world.
When asked, Who is your favorite
artist? The New York City-based artist
replies, the supreme being is the ultimate
artist. The themes of Bhullars paintings
are transcendental with titles like-Bondage
of Ignorant Thought, Search for the Soul,
The Diving Fire, Self in Worship, Bliss
of Surrender, and Humility of the Saints.
Originally from India, Bhullar was
raised in a spiritual family. This environment inspired her to live for the true purpose
of life and seek the supreme reality.
Her father is a mystic and her guide on
this journey. He explains , If Summer was
not a seeker of supreme reality, her unique
art would remain abstract to her all her life.
Since early childhood drawing, sketching and painting came naturally to her. She
came to New York in 2009 and began studying art formally at the National Academy
Museum and School, in New York City.
Bhullar has exhibited her work in several galleries and international exhibitions
since 2011. For more information visit

Stop Creating 2 & 3 Yrs Old Drug Addicts?

By Daseta Gray, M.Ed,


Certified Infant/Toddler Specialist
www.SabreeEducationServices.com

top dumping out those books! Stop hitting


me! O no he just jumped off the table!
Stop throwing those toys! is this normal? or
does he need some drugs to interrupt this stage
of development?
When you have a baby it is normal for the
baby to move her body parts. Usually the first
thing that the baby does after birth is cry and
the make a fist with both hands and begin to
move them in a punching action.
You will observe that the baby will naturally move and try to hold up her head as she
gets more experience she will be able to pick
up her head as time goes on she will pick try
to get on her hands then add her knees to the
discovery. Once your baby begins to crawl she
begins to discover that she can move around
she will begin to explore.
Your infant/toddler learns through taking
risk and discovery. As the caregiver you must

create a safe space for your infant/toddler. Between the ages of zero to three years your toddler will be doing things that are normal part
of their brain development.
Here are a few things that a typical toddler
does:
Your toddler will jump off furniture
Your toddler will hit you because she is impulsive
Your toddler will not cooperate ( will not
listen to you)
Your toddler is defiant you will ask her not
to do something and she will look at you and
continue the behavior.
Your toddler will randomly begin to throw
items that she can manage
Your toddler does not sit still they are constantly moving
Your toddler will not want to help clean up
her mess
Impulsive hitting
Dump things out
Toddler wants things now
I mentioned a few of these normal developmental behaviors because I recently read an
article in the New York Times about a research
that was done. This research found that over
10,000 children between the ages of 2/3 were
on various medication mainly for attention
Deficit Disorder (A.D.D) Mostly boys and it
appears that the poorer you are the more likely
to be medicated.
Within this group about 1 in 5 boys had a
diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ( ADHD). All the behaviors that I have
mentioned will be achieved through guidance
and providing age appropriate tools and adults
with knowledge of brain development.

Exposing our gifted and talented


pre-K through second grade children

CITY HALL
he Black, Latino & Asian Caucus of the
New York City Council (BLAC) recently
held a press conference encouraging Black &
Latino families to request gifted and talented
testing for their pre-K through second grade
children.
The Department of Educations gifted and
talented programs provide an extremely high
quality, free educational option to students who
perform at a high level on the gifted and talented exam. This school year, students will be
tested at their local public schools in late Janu-

ary & early February. However, children will


only have this opportunity if parents take the
first step and request the test by the November
9th deadline.
Black & Latino participation in NYC
DOEs gifted and talented programs has declined from 27% to 22% since 2012. Moreover,
all of the four community school districts without local gifted and talented programs are represented by BLAC members, further reducing
awareness. The BLAC links low participation
in gifted and talented programs to lower levels.

Hello Shenar:
ongratulations on your achievement!
You should be very proud of yourself.
In order for me to motivate others I have to
touch on your life story.
I remember the day you told me that
basically have to take care of yourself and
other siblings in the garrison of Kingston,
Jamaica. As a seventeen-year-old-girl, that
is a big responsibility. Your mother moved
to a small Island to get work, but was unsuccessful for many months.
Crackers and tea was your dinner option many nights because you didn't have
the money. What I saw within you was that
you pushed through life's up and downs. I
recall the first day I met you. You were so
persistent.

graduate. I received a full track and field


scholarship. I am taking four classes and it
is not easy, but I am determined to be successful. I want you to motivate other students the way you motivated me. Again,
thanks for your help.
Sincerely
Shenar

Whatever you didn't understand you


tried to find the information and answer.
You didn't try to make your circumstances
hold you back. I remember at times you
walked ten miles to my center because you
didn't have bus fare or lunch money. You
had a vision and a goal, but the finance was
just not there.
I helped you because I saw a star
within you. You have warrior spirit for success, a determination like no other. We as a
people let life's obstacle hold us back, but
we should not become a victim of our circumstance. Shenar, your new challenge is
to complete college. Stay on the right path
and never lose focus. Utilize that track and
field scholarship and make your mother
proud. -Dr. Neva:

Fabian Marley heads to


France on promotional tour

WWW.STREETHYPENEWSPAPER.COM

onscious reggae singer, Fabian Marley,


is heading to France this week to officially kick off the European leg of an exciting
promotional campaign for his new single,
Nah Say We Poor, on the Massive Entertainment Group label.
This will be Marleys first time in Paris,
France and the singer is overflowing with enthusiasm and positive vibes as he sets out on
this all-important journey. He is keen on moving away from the drama associated with his
bombshell announcement two years ago that
he is the first son of Reggae icon Bob Marley,
and instead wants to focus on making a name
for himself. According to Fabian, who wears
many hats, including those of singer, songwriter, composer, arranger, producer and accomplished musician, he is ready to put his
career forward and let the public judge him
based solely on his talent.
I know that the media will want to pursue a particular line of questioning, Marley
said quietly, but the truth is that this is now
a family matter and such matters are best discussed behind closed doors. I want the world
to appreciate and love Fabian for the talent
that I was born with instead of who my father
or mother is.
However, I am also very aware that a
mans past is a crucial part in deciding his
own, individual destiny therefore in that
sense, you will never leave your past behind,
added Marley, who describes himself as a
loving youth who cares for people regardless
of race, colour or creed.

He will be accompanied to France by his

Ent Group, which is based in the US. Quite
understandably, Thomas is Marleys
staunchest supporter, and although he admits
that he heard of the singer through music industry links, who were eager to include information on Fabians heritage, Thomas says
that it was the artistes own raw talent that
was the ultimate factor in making the management decision.

Creating wealth in the Black & Latino communities

WWW.STREETHYPENEWSPAPER.COM

he topics of income gaps, gender wage gaps, and wealth gaps


are common and recurring themes in
many conversations today.
There are many examples of
these phenomena when you look at
CEO compensation compared to
rank and file workers; or the incomes of men versus women for
doing the same jobs; and the level of
financial security and wealth accumulation among Whites versus
every other ethnic group and demographic in the U.S. today. Whatever
the theories or causes for the stark
differences in income and wealth accumulation, Blacks and Latinos are
consistently at the bottom of every
list.
According to a report in the
2010 U.S. Census Bureau's Survey
of Business Owners, from 2002 to
2007, the number of black-owned
businesses increased by 60.5% to
1.9 million, more than triple the national rate of 18.0% for all other
groups. Revenue generated by
black-owned businesses increased
55.1% to $137.5 billion.
Yet, our communities were hit
harder and have taken much longer
to recover from the Great Recession.
The Pew Research Centers recent
analysis of data from the Federal
Reserves Survey of Consumer Finances shows that wealth inequality
has actually grown: The wealth of
white households was 13 times the
median wealth of black households
in 2013, compared with eight
times in 2010. Likewise, the

wealth of white households is now


more than 10 times the wealth of
Hispanic households, compared
with nine in 2010.
Its fair to say that for the last
few years, the U.S. has been experiencing an economic recovery. It
would also be fair to say that
whether were in boom times or
bust, Blacks and Latinos just arent
saving as well as their counterparts
in other demographics. Often, it is
because large segments of our communities work for employers who
dont offer 401K plans.
Our last resort, then, is to make
the most of the dollars and opportunities that we do have. The Social
Security System is set up to benefit
tax-paying American workers, their
dependents, spouses, ex-spouses and
widows. Social Security Retirement
Income is an important safety net,

especially for African-Americans


without additional savings, for
whom Social Security Retirement
income represents 90% of their total
income in old age.
However, there are still ways
that we have been short-changing
our futures by working off the books
and not paying into FICA, or by
under-reporting self-employment income. Data at www.SSA.gov shows
that in 2013 the average yearly in-

STREET HYPE NEWSPAPER 15

come for African American men 65


years and older was only $14,800,
compared to $12,540 for African
American women.
The problem is not in our efforts as we have been creating a
small business economic force of
well over $137.5 Billion. The problem is in our poor saving habits and
lack of planning. In my role as a Financial Representative and Advisor,
more than anything else, I encourage

my clients to become aggressive


savers. Your goal should be to save
10-15% of your take home pay. If
you cant save 10%, save 5%. And
if you cant save 5%, save 2. Something is better than nothing.

Dont Fall Victim to Financial


Distress Caused by Credit Card Debt
Credit counseling is the easiest, most effective way to explore the options for
credit card debt and identify the best solution for your needs.

HIGH MONTHLY CREDIT CARD


PAYMENTS combined with even
higher interest rates can make it almost impossible to maintain control
over your credit card debt. Even with
your monthly payments you may not
see much of a reduction in debt no
matter what you do.
Whats more, as your credit card balances increase, it can also cause problems for your budget you end up juggling bills, choosing between expenses,
and putting off important purchases.
Luckily, theres a way you can find the
solution that works for your unique financial situation and even better, it
wont cost a thing to get the information you need.

CREDIT COUNSELING IS THE


EASIEST, MOST EFFECTIVE WAY
TO EXPLORE THE OPTIONS
FOR CREDIT CARD DEBT AND
IDENTIFY THE BEST SOLUTION
FOR YOUR NEEDS. Speak with a
certified credit counselor at no charge
to analyze your debt and budget. They
will review your options to see what
solutions may work best for you. Your
credit counselor may be able to lower
high interest rates or even eliminate
them while consolidating your credit
card debts into one easy payment
through a debt management program.
Get Out of Debt Faster
As a result of those lower interest
rates more of your monthly pay-

ments go toward your debt instead of


adding more interest which means
you can get out of debt faster. Every
financial situation is different, but
most people see their total monthly
debt payments reduced by up to 30
to 50 percent as they get out of debt
faster. The program is usually completed in around 40-60 payments,
so you can be debt-free in just a few
years instead of taking decades to
eliminate everything you owe.

Its the fastest and easiest to


get professional financial
advice without incurring
another bill to do it.
Build a Positive Credit History
Additionally, consolidating debtthrough a certified credit counseling
service may help save your credit score
from additional damage. You stop future penalties and prevent further damage from missed payments and overdrawn credit lines. Even better, as you
work your way through the program,

youre able to build a positive credit history while reducing your overall
debt level. As a result, some people see
their credit score even increase over the
course of their time with a credit counseling service.
FREEDOM
FROM
DEBT
IS
POSSIBLE! Dont spend another
sleepless night worrying about your
debt problems, or another day stressed
about your bills instead of focused on
your family and life.

Businesswoman Admits Swindling Clients Out Of Tax Refunds


A
with DAVID WARREN, fatforward@gmail.com

CAMDEN, N.J:
Toms River, New Jersey,
woman last week admitted filing false tax returns and using her
accounting business to cheat her
clients out of their tax refunds, U.S.
Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.
Doreen Gentile, 61, pleaded
guilty before U.S. District Judge
Joseph H. Rodriguez in Camden
federal court to Count 2 and Count
27 of an indictment, charging her
with mail fraud and filing a false income tax return.
According to documents filed

in this case and statements made in


court: Gentile owned and operated
her accounting business, Doreen A.
Gentile & Associates, LLC (DAG
& Associates), out of her home in
Toms River.
Gentile admitted that as part of
her scheme, she would show her
clients a tax return that indicated
that they had no tax or refund due,
owed a minimal amount of tax, or
were due a refund that was far less
than the amount to which they were
entitled. Gentile then prepared a
second set of tax returns, signed
without her clients permission, that

she submitted to the IRS or the


State of New Jersey for the full tax
refund.
Based on the second set of returns, the IRS or the State of New
Jersey issued tax refund checks care
of DAG & Associates and mailed
them to the DAG & Associates post
office box in Toms River. Gentile
then deposited the tax refund
checks into the DAG & Associates
bank account without her clients
permission. Afterwards, Gentile
used the funds to pay for personal
expenses.

hree Paterson NJ men face up to


20 years in prison after being
convicted on Monday of first-degree
drug distribution charges.
Jurors in state Superior Court in
Paterson deliberated for about three
hours before finding Michael Almonte, Harold Fermin and Ismael
Peralta guilty of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute and
conspiracy to possess cocaine with
intent to distribute. Peralta and Fermin also were convicted of one count
each of hindering apprehension.
Judge Scott Bennion revoked
bail for all three men after the verdict
and ordered them held at the Passaic
County Jail until their sentencing on
Jan. 8, 2016.

Several relatives of the three


men burst into tears while the verdict
was read. They later took turns hugging them before the defendants were
led out of the courtroom into a holding cell.
The United States jails people at
the highest rate in the world and
needs to make greater efforts to rehabilitate millions of former prisoners,
President Obama said November 2nd
during a visit to New Jersey. Speaking at Rutgers University School of
Law in Newark, Obama announced
several executive actions to help former prisoners secure jobs, housing
and education and he called on
Congress to follow up with even
more sweeping plans.

There are so many Americans


who desperately want to earn a second chance, Obama said in a 20minute speech before New Jersey
law students, law enforcement officials and leading Democratic politicians.
The problem were trying to
solve is not just catching people and
putting them back in jail, he said,
but giving them a foundation with
which they can then become productive citizens. Nearly 70 million
Americans have some sort of criminal record, Obama noted, and each
year more than 600,000 people are
released from state and federal prisons.

Gentile also admitted that from


2006 through 2009, she failed to report to the IRS all of her income
generated from DAG & Associates,
including funds she stole as part of
her refund scheme, resulting in tax
losses of approximately $188,811.
The mail fraud count to which
Gentile pleaded guilty carries a
maximum potential penalty of 20

years in prison and a $250,000 fine.


The count of filing a false income
tax return carries a maximum potential penalty of three years in
prison and a $100,000 fine. As part
of her plea agreement, Gentile must
also forfeit $905,004 representing
proceeds of her scheme. Sentencing
is scheduled for Feb. 22, 2016.

Dating Scene Is Frustrating


for Strong Young Woman

Dear Divine Diva:


am a young woman hoping to find "The
One." But I have come to realize that I'm
not the normal female. I don't get manicures or go shopping. (I hate shopping!)
When I meet a guy, he likes that I'm "me,"
but if we get serious, then I'm either "too
independent," "too outspoken" or "not
girly enough."
I don't want to change myself or pretend to be someone I'm not. One minute
they like that I'm independent and can fend
for myself; the next they don't like that I
don't depend on them to pay bills, etc.
Why is it always a double standard?
Men like strong women until they are with

one. Then they can't handle it. Maybe I'm


too much for the men where I live. Is it
possible for me to find someone?
-Independent Female, Charleston SC
Dear Independent Female:
Welcome to the wonderful world of dating.
While some may think of dating as a popularity contest, it's really more like sifting
for a gold nugget. It takes a lot of people
years to strike gold -- and it's the same with
dating. Is it possible to find someone? Absolutely! But it takes time, stamina and a
sense of humor to survive the process.

Healthy, Affordable Food Choices Made Easy


NUTRICARE
I
(Courtesy of Family Features)
ts a common belief that eating healthy is
more expensive. In fact, keeping healthy
food affordable was among the top five most
concerning life issues revealed by an annual
consumer study by The Center for Food Integrity. The truth is, eating healthy can be
quick, easy and affordable. You can have value
without compromise.
However, the produce section can pose a
special challenge to grocery shoppers. Mixed
information about the value of organic foods
and confusion about the benefits of fresh versus canned or frozen produce make it hard to
shop smart, especially when budget is a factor.
Nutrition experts caution that while fresh
foods are always a treat for the senses, consumers should be careful to avoid making the
assumption that in-season produce or organic
are more fresh and, therefore, nutritionally
superior, to traditional fruits and vegetables
that are canned or frozen.

(woman grocery shopping)


We know we need to eat more fruits and vegetables, but when we think they have to be
fresh and organic, that just adds more barriers
to getting our fruits and vegetables, said
Melissa Joy Dobbins, mom, wife and registered dietitian. I hope my children learn that
nutrition doesnt have to be complicated. I
want them to enjoy, savor and celebrate food
with health in mind.

Use these smart shopping strategies from


Dobbins, the Guilt-Free RD, to save time
and money as you work your way toward a
healthier approach to eating within your
budget.
Look to the freezer and pantry to help
supplement and complement fresh produce
choices. Canned, frozen and packaged foods
are affordable, nutritious and convenient.
When youre reading food labels, look
for lower sodium or no salt added canned vegetables or fruit packed in its own juice instead
of added sugars.
Forget the crisper drawer. Put produce
on a top shelf so you can always see it and
know what needs to be eaten before it goes
bad, and you end up wasting not only food but
money.
Focus on nutrient-rich foods and limit
the empty calorie foods, such as sugary snacks
that can swell your budget and your waistline.
Dobbins adds that having a plan when you go

grocery shopping is also empowering when


balancing your budget with food needs.
Ive learned through counseling thousands of people and through my own experiences that feeling guilty about food is very
counter-productive, she said. On the contrary, when you feel empowered, you make
better choices, you feel good about those
choices and you are better able to maintain
healthier choices and behaviors.

Medical Marijuana Versus Recreation Marijuana

he acting chief of the Drug Enforcement


Administration Chuck Rosenberg called
medical marijuana "a joke" during a Q&A
with reporters. What really bothers me is the
notion that marijuana is also medicinal -- because it's not," he said.
His remarks ignited a firestorm. Medical
marijuana patients and advocates are calling
for his head in an on-line petition. Rosenberg's argument has rekindled the old debate
Medical Marijuana versus Recreation Marijuana.

In other words, is there medicinal value


in medical marijuana that takes precedence
over recreational use? New York State has
made medical marijuana available to parents
to give to their children but the federal government continues to label it as Schedule 1
drugs KMWjRa Such drugs are said to have
no currently accepted medical use in the
United States, a lack of accepted safety for use
under medical supervision, and a high potential for abuse.

The truth is medical marijuana does effectively relieve pain and Ive seen the results
first hand. As the former Executive Director
of the Black and Latino AIDS Coalition, Inc.
I saw hundreds of people living with
HIV/AIDS using marijuana for stomach
aches, head aches, nausea, muscle ache etc.
The symptoms were also from the harsh side
effects of AIDS medicine. Many people with
AIDS went out and bought marijuana from
street dealers.

Some got high but many more got relieve from there aches and pains within just
seconds of smoking it. They didn't get high
from it; they just felt much better and more energetic. Most Americans believe medical marijuana works.
Plenty of Anecdotal evidence shows me
that people are helped by smoking medical
and/or using CBD oils. As a matter of fact,
Marijuana has of long history of being used as
medicine.
But, the issue isn't as simple as "legalize
medical marijuana and everything will be
fine." In fact, right from the start, there were a
plethora of concerns. As of April 2015, 23
states and Washington D.C. have legalized
marijuana for medical use and though the results so far have been mostly positive, the
dope debate is far from over.

Music schools, arts and cultural centers,


youth theaters, dance studios and museum education departments will be represented
among the more than 600 delegates converging at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown
this week.
The four-day conference (Nov. 11-14) is
featuring nationally renowned experts exploring innovative ideas for growing arts programs, strategies for providing more equitable
access to arts education, ways to increase financial support, and the arts as a force for social justice.
More than an international thought leader
on community transformation and an extraordinary community development expert,
Archer Cunningham is a dynamic nonprofit
executive who believes passionately in sustainable philanthropy and social transformation through the use of culturally-based values.
One of her primary goals is to increase the
level of excellence of philanthropy in the
Caribbean and African regions and communities of color in America through integrating
philanthropic activity and building organizational capacity.
Archer Cunningham has raised more than
$40 million in support of local programs, capacity building efforts and operations.
