T
he controversial Jamaican
born entertainer, comedian
and radio disc jockey, Kingsley
Ragashanti Stewart who recent-
ly resigned as a host on Linkup
Radio 93.5 FM could face a six-
month ban from all New York
Tri-State public and licensed
radio stations.
David Squeeze Annakie,
CEO of Linkup Media Group, in
confirming Stewarts resignation
explains that effective February
28, 2013 an exit clause in their
contract prevents Stewart from
hosting another radio program in
the New York Tri-State area until
a six month-period has expired.
As it stands now
Ragashanti must have our
approval before moving to anoth-
er radio program. It is a standard
feature in the contracts of all our
broadcasters as we seek to pro-
tect our brands, Annakie says.
A month before the end of
his contract, Stewart submitted
his resignation to Annakie for
what he (Stewart) described as
personal and business reasons.

Street Hype confirmed that a
grand jury has been convened to
look into the city's disaster relief
fund, which was first administered
by Mayor Ernie Davis. Sources
say investigators are looking into
the misplacement of funds
between $10,000 and $30,000.
At least three city employees
have been served with subpoenas
and will testify before a grand jury
on Wednesday in White Plains
federal court regarding the Mount
Vernon Disaster Relief Fund, the
sources said.
Davis claims that all of the
funds raised for the hurricane vic-
tims are still in tact. This is all
politically motivated and a fish-
ing expedition for what I dont
know. There is no misuse of
funds, Davis explains.
Street Hype contacted federal
officials who said they cannot
comment on ongoing investiga-
tions. Mayor Davis served six
consecutive two-year terms as a
Westchester County Legislator
before he was elected as Mayor on
November 7, 1995.
Davis was re-elected to a sec-
ond term of office in November
1999. Davis also became the 21st
Mayor of Mount Vernon on
January 2, 2012.

D
id the title grab your attention? I real-
ly hope it did. I have met parents that
are only focused on providing their chil-
dren with an education.
There is nothing wrong with that, but
there is more to a childs development than
Math, Science and English. Our children
need to be taught from a young age to have
core competence skills.
These skills include but are not limit-
ed to communication, critical thinking,
decision making, self-awareness, values,
which are all apart of leadership skills.
My goal is not to convince you to
teach your children how to become iconic
leaders but to teach them basic skills so
that they can become individuals with the
proficiencies to become successful.
Children should be taught leadership
skills at a young age. You the parents can
teach these skills or enroll them in pro-
grams that offer leadership training. In a
good program or with your guidance, they
will learn how to communicate effectively
and handle complicated situations through
critical thinking.
Helping your children evaluate situa-
tions is an effective way of teaching them
how to approach various circumstances.
Learning from experience is another
important trait of a leader.
Leaders are knowledgeable.
Encourage your children to read not just
educational books. Make them analyze
what they have read by asking questions.
Teaching your children about self-aware-
ness carries importance.
Being self-aware can minimize chil-
dren following peers but instead become
the leader. Allowing your children to have
self-awareness can help them when they
start attending universities. I have wit-
nessed smart students drop out of college
because of a lack of what many would
consider basic survival skills. Dont let
your children lose because you failed to
provide them with a survival kit.

W
e wish to join the millions of peo-
ple all over the world in celebra-
tion of February as Black History Month
in remembrance of important people and
events in the history of the African dias-
pora.
This is a time to reflect on the strug-
gles and successes of many African-
American personalities, from civil rights
leaders to innovators and entrepreneurs.
We must also pay homage to
great African-American musicians and
entertainers.
Despite challenges and other set-
backs, African-Americans have been
very successful over the past decades
including the election of Barack Obama
as the first African-American to hold the
title of United States President.
However, there are several social
and economic issues that continue to
plague our black brothers and sisters.
For example, comprising less than
20% of the US population, blacks con-
tinue to represent over 70% of our peni-
tentiary population.
Also, amoung the various demo-
graphic groups in the US, blacks are
more likely to experiance poverty and
starvation.
The statistics show that more
African-Americans turn to crime and
violence, which later lead to their incar-
ceration.
Too many blacks especially the
youth are in prison rather than attending
college.
Education is the key to enhancing
our living standard to take us out of
poverty. But, we must start with the kids
and provide the right environment for
them to learn, grow and be productive.
The ancient Chinese proverb It
takes a village to raise a child, is getting
a renewed look regarding the impact of
communities and organizations on the
development of the children and youth
in the community.
The overall focus should be on unity
and cooperation among black people as
we seek to empower ourselves and
improve our living standard.
Teach Children Leadership Skills!

August, a move that is expected to save
the agency about $2 billion a year.
Better drop that bill payment or

because the cash-strapped U. S. Postal

In a posting on his Facebook page,
Stewart notes, this is to confirm that two
weeks ago I did in fact submit my resigna-
tion from Link Up Radio. I am doing so for
personal and professional reasons. My
partnership with Link Up was indeed
mutually beneficial, and I look forward to
pursuing new ventures.
It is sad to see Ragashanti go, but the
split was amicable. I wish Raga nothing
but the best in all future endeavors and
hope we get to work with him again soon.
The station will be announcing a new
morning show host in the near future,
Annakie adds.
Ragashanti joined the Link Up Media
in April 2012, tak-
ing his unique
brand of enter-
tainment to the
Tri-State area.
The show quick-
ly became one of
the top morning
shows in the New
York metro area.
LinkUp Radio is
owned by the
Linkup Media
Group of Companies, a flagship corpora-
tion of entertainment groups, premium
health products and life improvement
operations.

by Richard Haste of the NYPD Street Narcotics Enforcement Unit. Cameras show Ramarley calmly entering the
home, with Officer Haste frantically running after him and breaking down the front door. Sargent Scott Morris
was also at the scene. Officer Haste faces criminal charges and pleaded not guilty in the Bronx Courts. If con-
victed, Haste could face up to 25 years in prison. He returns to court on March 26.

Brooklyn:
T
he principal of a private Jewish high
school in Brooklyn. Emanuel
Yegutkin, 33, was sentenced on Thursday
(February 7) to 55 years in prison, for sex-
ually abusing three young boys over the
course of 10 years.
Yegutkin was convicted on 75
counts, of charges including three counts
of Course of Sexual Conduct Against a
Child in the First Degree, two counts of
Course of Sexual Conduct Against a Child
in the Second Degree, and multiple counts
of Criminal Sexual Act in the Second
Degree, Sexual Abuse in the Second
Degree, Sexual Abuse in the Third
Degree, and Endangering the Welfare of a
Child.
He became a close friend of the vic-
tims family and visited their home fre-
quently. From 1996 to 2005, Yegutkin
sexually abused two of the boys when
they were ages seven to 15-years-old, and
in 2008, exposed the third boy to pornog-
raphy. He forced
them to perform
sex acts including
fondling and oral
sex. Yegutkin was
arrested in
January 2009.
This strong
sentence once
again proves that
the people of
Brooklyn will not
tolerate crimes
against children. Hopefully this brings
some closure to these child victims so
they can go on to lead happy and produc-
tive lives, said District Attorney Charles
J. Hynes.
The case was prosecuted by Rachel
Schmidt, First Deputy Bureau Chief of
the Sex Crimes Bureau and Lauren
Traum, Senior Trial Attorney of the Sex
Crimes Bureau. Rhonnie Jaus is Chief of
the Sex Crimes Bureau.
Queens, NY:
O
n Tuesday, February 19, residents in the
Queens 31st council district that
includes the communities of Laurelton,
Springfield Gardens, Rosedale and the
Rockaways will go to the polls in a special
election to elect a new City Council candi-
date. Michael Duncan and eight other hope-
fuls have jumped into this race.
The election is attracting an unusual
amount of community and media attention
because one candidate, Jacques Leandre, has
filed objections with the Board of Elections
and lawsuits in the Supreme Court against
nearly all the candidates in the race. As it
happens, all six contenders that Haitian hope-
ful Jacques Leandre is seeking to remove
from the ballot are Black - Caribbean
Americans and African Americans. The sole
Jewish candidate in the race has been spared
Leandres wrath.
Doug Muzzio, a specialist in American
public opinion, voting behavior and city pol-
itics and a political analyst for ABC News has
said that in a large field of candidates as is the
case in Queens, a relatively small number of
votes can win. New York ballot access laws
are intentionally byzantine, designed to allow
party machines to thwart insurgents and
reformers, Muzzio said.
What Jacques
Leandre is doing here
in trying to eliminate
bona fide candidates
from the city council
race. This is an outrage
to the residents of
Queens and an assault
on democracy, an
enraged voter,
Lakeisha Thelwell
complained. This is plantation style slavery
politics, it is very un-American and we wont
stand for it here in Queens, she continued.
For his part, Michael Duncan under-
stands clearly that he must bring out the
Caribbean American voters to win the race on
February 19.
And community leaders in New York
like Desmond Clarke of the Jamaica National
Movement, Irwine Clare of the Jamaica
Diaspora US Northeast Advisory Board, Jose
Richards of the Sons & Daughters of Jamaica
and Darnel Abellard of LAssociation des
Ouanaminthais, a Haitian organization, have
all unreservedly endorsed Michael Duncan
and are urging their members to throw their
support behind Duncan on February 19.

GOODBYE EDWARD KOCH
E
dward I. Koch parlayed shrewd political
instincts and plenty of chutzpah into three
tumultuous terms as mayor of New York with
all the tenacity, zest and combativeness that
personified his city of golden dreams.
He was first elected in 1977, as the city
was still mired deep in a fiscal crisis, and
stepped down in 1989. Mr. Koch died on Feb.
1, 2013 at age 88.
Koch had suffered coronary and other
medical problems for years since leaving
office. But he had been in relatively good
health despite or perhaps because of his
whirlwind life as a television judge, radio talk-
show host, author, law partner, newspaper
columnist, movie reviewer, professor, commer-
cial pitchman and political gadfly.

released from a prison in
Brazil after he was grant-
ed bail by the Brazilian
Supreme court.
Neil Smith, the spokesman for TCI
Governor Damian Todd, said that the
release of Misick on bail does not mean
that the legal process is exhausted.
Last month, the TCI government said it
had formally requested the extradition of
Misick from Brazil, where he has been in
prison since his arrest on December 7 last
year.
Government officials said "the formal
request" had been lodged with the author-
ities in Brazil and Smith said the docu-
ments had been submitted within the 60
day time limit.
Misick was arrested in Brazil as a result of
an international arrest warrant issued by

News Americas:
S
everal cough syrups are being voluntar-
ily recalled by Novartis Pharma
Logistics, Inc. in six Caribbean nations.
The recall involves certain lots of
Triaminic Syrups, Theraflu Warming
Relief Syrups, Jack & Jill brand pedi-
atric syrups and Buckleys Complete
Liquids.
A company statement late Tuesday
said consumers who may have the product
(s) being recalled are asked to return the
affected products and receive a full refund.
The products being recalled were produced
at a Novartis Consumer Health manufactur-
ing facility in the United States prior to the
voluntary suspension of operations in
December 2011, and at a third-party manu-
facturing site in Canada using the same bot-
tle and cap components.
The recall is for Trinidad & Tobago,
The Bahamas, Jamaica, Aruba, Barbados
and Curacao.
The drugs are being recalled, said
Novartis, because the child-resistant fea-
ture of the bottle cap may not function
properly, enabling the cap to be removed
with the tamper-evident seal still in place.
Novartis Pharma Logistics advises
consumers who believe they have product
included in this recall to discontinue use
and return the recalled product to the store
or pharmacy where it was purchased for a
full refund. Only recalled product in the
original bottle will be eligible for a refund.
Consumers may contact the Novartis
Consumer Relationship Center at 877-769-
8420 (available Monday-Saturday 8 a.m. to
6 p.m. Eastern Time) for more detailed
information about the recall, including
which products are impacted, and for infor-
mation on how to return the affected prod-
ucts and receive a full refund.

HAVANA (IPS) -
Among millions of people flocking to the
polls in Cuba to vote in general elections
was the unexpected figure of former pres-
ident Fidel Castro, making a surprise pub-
lic appearance in what was interpreted as
a reaffirmation of his support for the gov-
ernment of his brother, President Ral
Castro. Nothing is fortuitous: Fidel is
(showing) his support for updating the
economic model and the transformations
that derive from it, an analyst who asked
not to be identified told IPS.
Castro cast his ballot and talked to
Cuban media Sunday at his polling sta-
tion in the municipality of Plaza de la
Revolucin (Revolution Square) in the
capital, Havana.
The former president said, It is our
duty to update the Cuban socialist model,
modernise it, but without committing
errors. He also spoke about the health of
Venezuelan President Hugo Chvez who
is convalescing in Havana from a cancer
operation, saying he receives daily infor-
mation about Chvezs health and adding
that he is much better.

ALEXANDRIA, Va.
David J. Rainsberger, 32, a law
enforcement officer with the State
Departments Diplomatic Security
Service, pleaded guilty on Monday to
receiving unlawful gratuities while
stationed at the U.S. embassy in
Kingston, Jamaica, and making false
statements to the United States gov-
ernment on a national security ques-
tionnaire required to maintain his
security clearance. Courts paper
identifed the Jamaican musician as
MB
Neil H. MacBride, United States
Attorney for the Eastern District of
Virginia, and Gregory B. Starr,
Director of the Diplomatic Security
Service for the U.S. Department of
State, made the announcement after
the plea was accepted by United
States District Judge Gerald Bruce
Lee.
Rainsberger faces a maximum
penalty of two years in prison on the
gratuities charge and five years in
prison on the false statements charge
when he is sentenced on April 19,
2013.
According to court records,
Rainsberger served as an assistant
regional security officer for investi-
gations at the U.S. embassy in
Kingston, Jamaica, from 2009 to
2011.
While there, Rainsberger
befriended a well-known Jamaican
musician whose entry to the U.S. had
been barred because of allegations of
criminal conduct.
Rainsbergers investigation of
this individual resulted in the rein-
statement of his visa, which allowed
the individual to travel to the U.S. to
take advantage of performance and
recording opportunities.
Rainsberger admitted he helped
a well-known musician identified in
court papers only by the initials DB

On account of the assistance
Rainsberger provided him with
respect to his U.S. visa, the musician
purchased for Rainsberger two luxu-
ry watches worth approximately
$2,500.
In addition, Rainsberger
received free admission to night-
clubs, backstage access to concerts,
and a birthday party hosted by the
musician.
At the same time, Rainsberger,
who was already married, became
engaged to a Jamaican national and
intentionally withheld disclosure of
the relationship from the U.S. gov-
ernment on Office of Personnel
Management Standard Form 86, a
national security questionnaire that
requires disclosure of close and con-
tinuing contact with foreign nation-
als. Rainsberger also repeatedly
accessed, without authority,
Department of State visa and pass-
port databases for personal purposes.
This case was investigated by
the Diplomatic Security Service.
Assistant United States Attorneys
Paul J. Nathanson and G. Zachary
Terwilliger are prosecuting the case
on behalf of the United States.

AUSTRALIA maintained their dominance
over the Windies, cruising to a five-wicket
victory to lead their one-day international
series 4-0 at the Sydney Cricket Ground on
Friday.
For West Indies, Kieron Pollard, who
is also the man of the match, played an
amazing innings to prop up the score to
220 after they were 55 for six at one stage.
But the Windies score was easily over-
taken by the Australians, who knocked 221
for 5, securing victory with 31 balls to
spare and will now go after a series clean
sweep in Melbourne on Sunday.
If not for Pollard's 109 off 136 balls it
would have been an even more emphatic
victory for Michael Clarke's team who
always had control of the run chase under
lights.
Shane Watson followed up his 122 in
Wednesday's 39-run series-clinching win
in Canberra with 76 off 84 balls and skip-
per Clarke hit 37 off 65 balls before he was
out gloving down the leg-side to express
bowler Tino Best with the scores level.
Watson had a bit of luck along the way
when he was dropped on 32 by wicket-
keeper Devon Thomas and Sunil Narine
botched a run-out with the Australian
opener well out of his ground when on 51.
He was finally out when he could not
get out of the way of a rearing Best deliv-
ery and was caught behind.
Adam Voges, in the team for injured
George Bailey, made 28 off 39 balls before
he holed out to Darren Sammy off Andre
Russell and Clarke was the last man out
with the scores tied.
West Indies 220 (Pollard 109*, Johnson 3-
36, Cutting 3-45). Australia 5 for 221

ember of the Board of the Friends of
The Penn Relays and former Consul
General of Jamaica General Geneive
Brown Metzger led a high-level delegation
of The Penn Relays leadership from the
University of Pennsylvania to meet with the
CARICOM Consular Corp on January 30,
2013 in New York.
Among the delegation was Dave
Johnson, The Frank Dolson Director of The
Penn Relays; Mark Donley, Snr. V.P.
Nelligan Sports; and Mike Fellici, V.P.,
Nelligan Sports. A former member of the
Corps, Dr. Brown Metzger served as
Jamaicas eighth Consul General in New
York.
The objective of the meeting was to
strengthen the existing ties between the two
groups and expand connections with
Caribbean sports community, including
schools that come annually to The Relays.
Im hopeful that this meeting will be a step
toward strengthening our relationship with
the Caribbean schools that come annually
to the Relays, and forging new relationships
with schools that want to come this year and
in the future, says Dave Johnson.
We are privileged to be able to count
the CARICOM Consular Corps among our
distinguished guests and friends at the
Relays and look forward to a mutually
rewarding collaboration in the years
ahead, said Brown Metzger,
The rich history of Caribbean athletes
participation in the Relays goes back to the
1920s with Cuban sprinter Jose Barrientos.
U.S. collegians of Caribbean heritage
include Herb McKenley (1940s), George
Rhoden (1950), Edwin Roberts and
Wendell Mottley (1960s), Fred Sowerby
and Hasley Crawford (1970s). Jamaicas
Vere Technical High School became the
first girls high school team to attend in
1979. Since then, attendance by high
schools from the CARICOM has been from
Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, British
Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Grenada,
St.Kitts and Nevis, St. Vincent & The
Grenadines, Trinidad & Tobago.
Generations of Caribbean gold medal-
ists, including 2008 4400 m Olympian
Gold Medalist Usain Bolt, have participat-
ed in The Relays. Herb McKenley (1940s)
was the first Jamaican to run The Relays.
He went on to win gold in the 4400 m
relay at the 1952 Summer Olympics.
The 2013 Penn Relays will take place
April 25-27 at Penns historic Franklin
Field in Philadelphia, PA.
It will be the 119th running of The
Relays which is known as the worlds first,
largest and best relay carnival.

LONDON (CMC) -
O
lympic sprint champion Usain Bolt and
other overseas athletes will be able to
compete tax-free in this year's London
Diamond League event after the British gov-
ernment agreed to tax exemptions.
Bolt, who won three gold medals at last
year's London Olympic Games, had not
raced previously in the United Kingdom
since 2009 because of tax rules.
The Government is determined to do every-
thing possible to secure the Olympic legacy
and I am delighted to grant this exemption,"
Finance Minister George Osborne told the
Daily Telegraph Wednesday.
Under British law, non-residents are
required to pay a 50 per cent tax rate on their
appearance fee, and also cough up a quantity
of their worldwide endorsement income.
2014 WORLD CUP QUALIFYING
Britain relaxes tax rules to lure top athletes
T
he Jamaicans put up a valiant fight
against Mexico inside the Azteca to
gain their first ever point at that venue in a
World Cup Qualifier late this evening.
After 90 minutes of regulation time
plus six minutes of stoppage time, the
game ended 0-0.
Jamaica's Reggae Boyz missed a glo-
rious chance in the 9th minute when Jobi
McAnuff hit the upright before the goal-
keeper blocked the rebound.
The Mexicans also missed a few
chances at goal and there were a few bril-
liant saves from the Jamaican goalkeeper
Donovan Ricketts.
The second half would provide more
chances for the Jamaicans, but Ryan
Johnson never delivered the gifts.
Jamaica has nine matches remaining
in the campaign.
The next match will be against
Panama on March 22 in Kingston.

A self-professed fan of popular
Barclays Premier League team
Manchester United, Bolt, who is also a

chance to show how much of a 'baller' he
truly is.
The celebrity teams will be coached
by NBA All-Star James Harden of the

Busy Signal on
Passport Charges
D
ancehall entertainer Busy Signal
who was deported to the island last
year is due in the Corporate Area
Criminal Court last Tuesday.
According to a report on radioja-
maica.com, Busy Signal who spent time
in a US prison, was recently charged by
the local police with obtaining passports
using a false name.
The charges stemmed from his arrest
last year on an extradition warrant. It was
disclosed during the arrest that Busy,
whose given name is Glendale Gordon,
had unlawfully obtained three Jamaican
passports in the name Reanno Gordon,
which he used in his travels abroad.
If convicted, he faces stiff fines.
Busy Signal returned to Jamaica late last
year, after serving time in a US prison.
He pleaded guilty to absconding bail
and was sentenced to six months.
Busy had pleaded guilty in July to
one count of failure to appear in court,
admitting that he left the United States 10
years ago, before a scheduled trial on
drug charges.

Beyonce lately, but when I

saw her dropped it and dip to the

her again. My only problem
with the performance was the

L
ook, anyone who knows me knows
that I don't abide most of the cas cas
served up by political correctness. Pardon
me, non-Jamaicans: cas cas is patois for
much-to-do-about-nothing
Don't get me wrong...I think we ought
to take care in how we treat one another. I
call that courtesy and I have yet to be con-
vinced of what political correctness adds
to the practice. I, however, know what it
detracts from it, and the controversy over
the VW Super Bowl ad is a good case in
point.
Folks are getting bent out of shape
over the VW ad which casts an office
exec-type showing off his prowess in
feigning the Jamaican accent to co-work-
ers in the office. I was pleased to see that
Jamaica's Minister of Tourism, Dr.
Wykeham McNeill, was quoted in a
January 29, 2013 USA Today article as
saying, "We view it as a compliment.
The Minister went on to say "People
should get into their inner Jamaica and get
happy." I share the Minister's viewpoint.
Fact is that those who would find the
ad racist are basing their opinion on a
stereotype of Jamaicans, otherwise known
as racial profiling that, in another context,
they themselves would consider racist.
The presumption by those crying racism is
that all Jamaicans are black. Wrong!
Jamaicans comprise a diverse racial mix of
people. The country's motto, Out of
Many, One People, speaks to the
Jamaican identity which is informed by a
rich background of peoples originating
from all over the world.
I recall some years ago, being in a cab
with my good friend, Glynne Manley
(wife of the late former Prime Minister of
Jamaica, Michael Manley). I hadn't seen
her for years, and we were talking inces-
santly, as friends do who had a lot to share,
when the cab driver, looking in his rear
view mirror inquired, which one is
Jamaican?
Glynne and I caught on immediately
that he was curious to know why Glynne,
a white Jamaican (who, by the way is of
Scottish background), was speaking with a
Jamaican accent. We all had a good laugh
and Glynne and I had the pleasure of edu-
cating the driver on the racial diversity of
the Jamaican people.
I make a confession here...probably
have never done this in writing
before...that I was somewhat confounded,
and to some degree, still am...by the rise to
iconoclastic prominence of the notion of
diversity in America in the 70s.
Diversity is the fabric of American identi-
ty. It is a big part of what makes America a
great society and what has attracted people
from every corner of the world to its
shores. Perhaps the move was a reminder
to those who might have forgotten.
I served as the Jamaican Consul
General from 2008 to 2012 and one of the
most rewarding programs I hosted was on
Jamaican Jewry. I often host American
friends in Jamaica and many of them are
Jews from New York. I take pride in taking
them to synagogue in Kingston, the oldest
in the Western Hemisphere, where the con-
gregation is black, brown and white. This
always comes as an intriguing surprise to
my guests. It also makes the point about
Jamaica.
As a Jamaican, I think the actor in the
ad, 33 year-old Erik Nicolaisen, did a darn
good job with the accent....it tops anything
I heard in Miami Vice back in the day,
and since. Turns out, Erik's brother-in-law
is Jamaican. For all you know, he's a dark-
skinned Chinese looking Jamaican, named
Mordecai
Chin, whose maternal grandmother is
a Jamaican Jew. Lest you think this is a
caricature, check out Jamaican billionaire
financier, Michael Lee Chin, whose back-
ground comes close.
So, lighten up, people. Take Minister
McNiell's advice...Find your inner
Jamaica. I don't normally watch the Super
Bowl but I did this year just to see Erik do
his thing. Yah, mon!

EDUCATION
Are teaching
style created with
boys in mind?
I
have worked for over twenty years in
early childhood settings both as a
teacher, director and a consultant. I
observed interactions with boys and their
care givers and it is usually different than
their interaction with girls.
When the classrooms are organized
in these early years are boys needs con-
sidered?
Boys from infancy need space to
grow. Boys love to climb, dive off tables,
move a lot, take things apart and try to put
them back together.
These are some of boys tempera-
mental traits. However, many times boys
are described with adjectives such as:
bad, destructive disruptive, trouble
maker, aggressive, un-cooperative etc.
Are we destroying our boys during their
infant/ toddler years?
Many adults like to say boys are
slower than girls. Some characteristics are
natural with boys and they should be
given the opportunity to develop. Just
imagine if each time you attempt to climb
on a table an adult is there saying No
dont do that.
Would you want to try climbing
again? Many of us sever the boys ability
to feel a sense of accomplishment during
their infant /toddler years. What you need
to do is make the space safe for him to
climb on the table and when he gets on
the table you should celebrate by clap-
ping your hands and say Yea you did it.
You will see the biggest smile and
observe how quickly he will do it again.
His self esteem is taking roots because of
your approval. Try not to use the word
NO with your boy. No gives a sense of I
should not try anything because I will
hear the word NO.
My grandson began walking at seven
months. We were out and a lady saw him
walking, how old is he she asked. He is
seven months my daughter replied. I
am surprised because boys are usually
slower than girls she commented.
When you are caring for boys you
must give then space to grow. You should
also help them through the different
developmental stages when they tell you
that they are ready. or nine months he
will be able to drink from a cup.
Boys love action oriented activities.
Many childcare programs tend to have
boys sitting too long when their tempera-
ment does not allow for that. The boys
usually stop focusing and the caregiver
gets frustrated.

W
inter brings lots of challenges with it.
Not only the challenge of dealing with
cold, wet and dry weather but the hats,
scarves we wear and temperature fluctuations
from freezing outside to hot inside can all
have an effect on the condition of your hair
and your health.
The most important tip is to NEVER go out-
side in below freezing temperatures with
exposed wet hair or a wet scalp. Doing this is
not only dangerous to your health (you lose
most of your body heat through your head),
exposing you to the possibility of sickness but
can also cause terrible dryness and lack of
elasticity in your hair, leading to breakage. If
you can't resist and want to go out and get
your hair snowy, when you come inside, be
sure to dry your hair thoroughly and immedi-
ately run damage control by rubbing a light
pomade through your hair.
Don't open yourself up to the possibility of
fungus or even mold forming at the base of
your hair. This can happen if you style it
while wet in a tight style where the air cannot
get to your scalp and leave it that way for an
extended period, allowing your scalp and hair
close to the scalp to remain damp.
Use a blow dryer on the warm or cool set-
ting with a diffuser to gently dry your hair at
the scalp. Once it is just damp (not complete-
ly dry) add a rich moisturizing leave-in con-
ditioner and style.
Never use the hot setting as it will dry your
hair out and cause breakage. All you want to
do is accelerate the air drying process, not
heat your hair up.
Use the back of your hand as a guide. If you
turn the blow drier onto the back of your hand
and turn it on, test the heat. If it burns the
back of your hand, the setting is too hot or
youre holding it too close.

Password
security
checklist
Pick strong passwords:
Regardless of what your pass-
word is for, it's always good to
pick a strong, random password.
Don't use your child's name, or a
birthday.
Use unique passwords for every
site: Don't ever reuse the same
email and password combo on
multiple services. It might seem
like it doesn't matter, but if a
hacker gets your account infor-
mation on one site, that means
they can use that login informa-
tion on every other site you're
registered at. Keep all your pass-
words different.
Use Should I Change My
Password? to track security
breaches: If you don't keep up
with tech news you probably
don't see most minor security
breaches.
To help out, the webapp Should I
Change My Password? notifies
you when a major service is
hacked.
That's the minimum you should
do if you want to play it safe and
secure with your passwords. But
you can do better than that.
If you're the type to conduct a
lot of work online, then you need
more complicated security meas-
ures. With that in mind, you
should do the steps mentioned
above, and a few other things
Use two-factor authentication
whenever possible: Two-factor
authentication is a simple way to
lock your computer to an account
so you have to verify your identi-
ty when you log onto a different
computer. Not all services have it,
but Google, LastPass, Facebook,
Dropbox, and more all do. Use it.
Use a password manager: We
get it, you have a lot of passwords
and you don't want to remember
them all. Instead of reusing the
same junky password, a password
manager is a simple way to save
them all securely. We like
LastPass, butKeePass, and
1Password are equally solid solu-
tions.
Shut down and unlink services
you don't use: If you're the type to
try out a lot of different webapps
or mobile apps then you probably
have a ton of passwords scattered
around everywhere.
When you decide you don't want
to use a service anymore, remem-
ber to delete your account. This
way, if the service is hacked you
don't have to fumble around try-
ing to remember your login infor-
mation.

Senators aim to extend
ban on Internet access tax
By Lance Whitney www.cnet.com
A
couple of senators in Washington want to make
sure people in the U.S. never have to pay taxes
for Internet access.
Passed in 1998, the Internet Tax Freedom Act
prevents federal, state, and local governments from
collecting sales taxes on the use of e-mail and other
types of Internet access. The bill is due to expire
November of next year.
New legislation introduced yesterday by
Republican Sens. Kelly Ayotte (N.H.) and Dean
Heller (Nev.) is designed to extend the ban indefi-
nitely. The Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act
would stop governments from imposing new taxes
on Internet access.
"Nevadans and every American should be able
to access the Internet without penalties from the fed-
eral government," Heller said in a statement.
"The Internet Tax Freedom Act will ensure a long-
standing federal policy that prevents the government
from raising taxes, and preserves the Internet as a
tool for education and innovation."
The bill also aims to prevent the abuse of taxes
on online purchases by prohibiting "any multiple or
discriminatory taxes" on such purchases.
"E-commerce is thriving largely because the
Internet is free from burdensome tax restrictions.
Unfortunately, tax collectors see it as a new revenue
source, and they must be stopped," Ayotte said in a
statement. "This legislation will provide certainty to
the marketplace, helping the Internet continue to be
a driving force for jobs and growth."
Some states impose sales tax collection on cer-
tain retailers. But Congress has yet to pass any
national legislation. A bill called the Marketplace
Fairness Act would give states the ability to collect
sales taxes on online purchases. That bill has been
floating around Washington for a while but has yet to
come up for a vote.

LIFE STYLE
Dear Divine Diva:
I
am recently widowed. Men I work wit-
hand the husbands of some of my
friends have been hitting on me. They'll
ask meout for a meal, give me big hugs -
- and acouple of them have even kissed
me on themouth. I don't lead them on, and
besides, I'ma chubby great-grandmother.
What drivesmen to do this? Do
they think they're "con-soling" me? When
these things happen, Iact as if they never
did and go on as usualbecause to do oth-
erwise would be hurtfulto their wives,
who are my friends. Thesemen don't
frighten me, but I don't under-stand their
motivation. -RX, Brooklyn
Dear RX:
There isn't a blanket explanation for the-
behavior you have described. Some of
your friends' husbands may be trying to
consoleyou; others may have lecherous
intentions. As to your male co-workers,
big hugs and kisses are a no-no in the
workplace and youshould tell them so.
If these incidents happen repeatedly-
with the same people, you will have tos-
peak up and say they're making youun-
comfortable. And as to your friends' hus-
bands, try this: Stiff-arm them when
yougreet them with a sweet smile, then
turnyour cheek when you see them com-
ing atyou. - Always Divine Diva
Dear Divine Diva:
M
y husband and I are not religious.
Webelieve that people are entitled
to their ownbeliefs. My problem lies with
my brother-in-law and his wife. They are
two of themost judgmental, sanctimo-
nious people Ihave ever known. They
"hate" (their word)Mormons, Catholics,
etc. How would yousuggest I respond to
their criticism of our"lack" of Christianity
and their offers topray for us?
-Kim, Bronx
Dear Kim:
If your relatives are an example of peo-
plewho practice Christianity, heaven help
therest of us. If you must interact with
them,practice selective deafness, and
when theyspout hatred, excuse your-
selves. -Always Divine Diva

T
he day you married the man of your
dreams you probably envisioned a
future filled with love and tenderness.
That illusion tends to last as long as the
honeymoon or until he does something
unappealing. No relationship is perfect,
but it's how you handle the pitfalls that
will determine if your marriage is strong
and happy or destined for divorce.
Most men aren't all that crazy about the
idea of talking about their innermost feel-
ings. If confronted by an obviously upset
wife a man is more apt to blame his distant
behavior on work issues or worry over
finances. A man knows that the moment he
confesses to his wife about that fact that
he's not feeling as invested in the marriage
as he once was, she'll fly into full panic
mode and the tears and demands will begin.
Think about your marriage in general
and when you think your husband's attitude
started to shift. In some cases a man will
become distant after a very large conflict
that has yet to find a resolution. Other men
will become distant if they feel their wife
isn't devoting as much time to the marriage
as she should.
This sometimes happens if the wife has
a demanding career that steals her time
away or if she has small children that she's
devoting her energy to. If you can pinpoint
when your husband started pulling away
emotionally from you, you'll have a starting
place to rebuild the marriage.
You will need to talk with him at some
point about the distance that has appeared in
your marriage. You need to be compassion-
ate and understanding as you do this. Don't
approach him from a place of anger or dis-
appointment but instead from a place of
deep compassion and understanding. Tell
him that your marriage is important to you
and you want to work with him to make it
better for you both.
Encourage him to share with him what
he feels is lacking in the relationship and
make it clear that you're not going to take
offense at the things he says. He may hold
back out of fear of upsetting you but this is
really when you two need to get your cards
out on the table.
Just as it took time to build your mar-
riage, it will take time to rebuild it too.
Don't push him too much as you two work
towards reconnection. Instead, plan for time
alone with the man you love so you two can
focus solely and completely on each other.
If your husband sees that you're ready,
willing and enthusiastic about the idea of
improving your marriage, he'll be more
inclined to want the same thing.
Never miss a chance to tell him how
much you utterly adore him and how grate-
ful you feel to be the woman he's chosen to
share his life and future with.
Don't spend another day wishing your
marriage was different. If you want your
husband to treat you differently, make it
happen.

Is Becoming

Judgmental and Sanctimonious People
Send your questions
divinestreethype@gmail.com
Check this column for anwsers
ARIES (Mar. 21 Apr.
19): You are confronted
with the realization that
your long-term goals may
not be supported by the
current circumstances.
You're tempted to set your
throttle at warp speed and
ram your way through the
restraints.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 May
20): Your emotions can get
in the way if someone
blocks your progress, but
the reasons for your intense
feelings might not be
apparent to you yet. Resist
making any judgments
because it may take a few
days to fully comprehend
what's going on.
GEMINI (May 21 Jun.
20): You might not be the
most meticulous worker in
the world, yet you can
move very quickly once
you start a job. Your work
could still fall short of other
people's expectations, even
if your intentions are hon-
orable.
CANCER (Jun. 21 Jul.
22): It feels like you don't
have enough of what you
need. Although your prob-
lem could be a lack of
resources, it might also be
your self-esteem that's in
short supply now.
Whatever is troubling you,
don't allow yourself to
grow discouraged; the cur-
rent difficulties are not
about failure.
LEO (Jul. 23 Aug. 22):
Even if significant issues
are already developing at
home, your current actions
still have major conse-
quences over the weeks
ahead. Consider the work
that you must do; if you're
trying accomplish too
much, you may be forced to
let some things go.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 Sept.
22): Your reliable common
sense helps you to remem-
ber what is most important
now. Even if something at
work isn't going as well as
you wish, you can still
make a smart decision
today that enables you to
stay on your chosen path.
Be clear about your inten-
tions and focus on your
goals.
LIBRA (Sept. 23
Oct.22): Most areas of
your life seem to be mov-
ing along quite well, but
you could face conflicts
now between what you
want to do and the amount
of money you make.
Someone close to you may
act impulsively and irre-
sponsibly, adding to your
emotional stress.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov.
21): Spending time with
your friends and associates
offers the change of pace
you seek, but don't try to
micromanage your social
activities. Instead of wast-
ing time by attempting to
create a memorable event,
stay flexible without
assuming control of the sit-
uation.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22
Dec.21): Attempts to
accomplish too many
things all at once today
could lead to doing a poor
job at all of them. Tread
lightly in all of your inter-
actions because understat-
ing your responses is the
most efficient use of your
energy now.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22
Jan. 19): There are power-
ful forces at work today, yet
they may be hiding behind
the scenes so you can't see
them directly. Your tenden-
cy is to overlook minor
details now, but a small
thing could be the catalyst
that turns your day around.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20
Feb. 18): Paradoxically, it's
easier to feel free if you can
accept the limitations being
placed on you now. Instead
of trying to eliminate all
boundaries, learn to work
within the safety net they
provide. Even if you're fac-
ing a difficult challenge,
rise to the occasion and
show what you can do.
PISCES (Feb. 19 Mar.
20): A highly restrictive sit-
uation may prevent you
from stepping over your
limits, even if you aren't
conscious of what's holding
you back now. Stop worry-
ing about what could fall
apart or what might not
work.

R
esearch has shown that the aver-
age American eats more sugar in
one day than our ancestors did during
an entire lifetime. They prized sugary
foods for their abundant calories and
quick energy spike. Sugar has a very
high caloric content and virtually no
nutritional value. Besides causing
weight gain, it also encourages inflam-
mation and infection, compromises the
immune system and raises insulin lev-
els.
Eating sugar has also been indicated
in raising bad cholesterol while lower-
ing good cholesterol.
Weight gain is indicated in hardening
of the arteries which directly con-
tributes to heart disease.
Further, sugar definitely plays a role
in developing some types of diabetes.
Sugar, particularly that in fruit juice,
is also known to cause tooth decay.
Consumption may also make one
more likely to suffer from gum dis-
ease. Thus vigorous brushing of the
teeth should always follow consump-
tion of sugar.
It is though that sugar plays a role in
how we behave as well. It has been
suggested that excess may cause
depression.
It may also result in hyperactivity or
mood swings as one drops from sugar
highs to lows.

WHY AM I

O
rthomolecular treatment (right food
for molecules) is the missing link
between good and bad health. Our bodies
are made up of food, water, air, EFA and
light. Hence, it makes perfect sense to
turn to these sources to cure all diseases.
Toximolecular treatment (synthetic
medicine), has become the norm for so
many. This kind of treatment of diseases
acts against nature and our molecules do
not recognize or welcome them. A band-
aid for symptoms is all they represent
so disease live and continues to grow.
GET A BODY
BLUEPRINTSOON
Vitelife Wellness Center is dedicated to
helping one person at a time to take a
deeper look inside and behind the pain
and suffering they describe, so we can
pinpoint the underlying causes of so
many named conditions or diseases.
Symptoms are irrelevant to our approach
because our ultimate goal is to get to the
real causes, which can be one or several.
Our fully certified Practitioners and
Educators have been trained to use cer-
tain Non-invasive techniques and state-
of-the-art equipment to chart and create
each persons Personal Body Blueprint
(PBB). Through these techniques, we are
able to determine certain obvious imbal-
ances in every body system (organs, mus-
cles, body fluids, etc).
Upon determination, and also through
full visual disclosure, each person gets
the chance to participate in their own
approach to bring back harmony to their
body cells, thereby allowing the body to
naturally heal itself as nature intended.
Our approach is purely naturopathic,
meaning we do not use or encourage the
use of non-plant or chemically derived
sources for treatment.
We have several approaches to get-
ting each client well through guided
nutritional changes, drug-free treatment
and sometimes just plain abstinence from
the causative agents.
We encourage balanced approach to
nutrition based on each persons chem-
istry as determined by the tests per-
formed. Procedures are totally non-inva-
sive and every technique is visibly live to
each client, allowing their participation or
comments as we proceed.
Our center is located at 587 Main St,
Ste 208 in New Rochelle, Westchester
County NY. We are available for group
demonstrations to churches and other
civic group with good intentions for their
members.

South Queens Tax Couple
Edward and Adriana Jackson
By Kamau Austin
Contributing Writer
E
dward and Adriana Jackson are certainly
a couple that reflects South Queens in an
innovative way. The husband and wife team
run the well respected community based tax
service bearing their last name Jackson Tax
Service, Inc.
Ironically, they also have ventured into
an undertaking uncharacteristic of what you
might expect from a mom and pop type tax
business.
The couple has also recently opened up
a jazz reception hall called Jackson Room.
Edward Jackson and his brother Dave
Jackson are accomplished jazz musicians.
They have built an attractive jazz hall for
music gigs that is also available to the com-
munity to hold upscale events of modest
scale.
The Jackson Tax Services newer St.
Albans branch also houses the cozy Jackson
Room, in its basement. It has a separate
access to it slightly to the right of the front
entrance. Both Jackson Tax Service and
Jackson Room can are located at 192-07
Linden Blvd, St. Albans, NY 11412.
Adriana Jackson, the manager of the St.
Albans branch, comments that this has been
a lifelong dream of my husband to have a
place like Jackson Room and Im glad to see
him accomplish it. While Jackson Room is
a new endeavor for the Jackson family the
tax business is not. Jackson Tax has its orig-
inal location in Rochdale Village Mall 1.
Jackson Tax was started by Edward
Jacksons father David W. Jackson, over 35
years ago so it is a family business passed
down through the generations. Will people
one day be able to listen to live jazz while
they have their taxes worked on I asked Ms.
Jackson. She smiled and responded You
never know? But for now we pipe jazz
music through our office sound system while
doing taxes.
South Queens has always been known as
a very special place both in terms of its busi-
ness professionals and jazz greats.
You can reach Adriana Jackson about either

or for Jackson Room at 718-525-2387.

Beyond The Music At The
Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival
By Howard Turner
Contributing Writer
T
he 2013 installment of the Jamaica Jazz
& Blues festival ended in Jamaica two
Sunday ago. The sizzling, fun filled three
day festival attracted thousands of music
lovers from the diaspora, who poured into
the island to see stellar performances from
John Legend, Michael Bolton, Mary J Blige,
Coco Tea, Gramps Morgan, Tarrus Riley,
Third World, Chaka Demus & Pliers, Etana,
rising star Romain Virgo and others.
In terms of production, the festival
again proved it was on par with the best in
the world. The lighting, the sound, the VIP
& sponsor tents, food court and general
ambiance created by the organisers was
breathe taking.
While many patrons attend the festival
for the top quality entertainment, an inter-
esting observation I made about the 2013
festival is that more Jamaicans in the
Diaspora attend not just for the music but
for the networking and business opportuni-
ties that exist. Fact is that the festival bring
out the who is who in Jamaica including top
business executives and prominent govern-
ment officials.
This year, the Diaspora was well repre-
sented with many affluent Jamaicans in
media, business and concert promoters who
make the trek to Montego Bay. Many from
New York, Florida, Toronto and other states
were seen hobnobbing at the festival all
three nights. North Carolina radio host and
telecom executive Patrick Homes, who
made his 9th trip to the festival this year said
he specially attended to seek out business
opportunities.
"Over the years we have developed
great relationship with many businesses and
their executives" he remarked to Street
Hype. "We have taken back new ideas to
improve our business and increase revenue.
We have also contributed to several events
and businesses in and around the Montego
Bay area" he disclosed. "The beauty of the
Jazz festival is that you have the ability to
meet all the top business executives and
government officials in Jamaica under one
roof. If anyone is looking to start a business
or interested in going back home to work in
Jamaica, the Jazz festival is the place to be"
he reasoned.
Irwine Clare, Diaspora NE Board
member and radio host of Irie Jam Radio,
93.5FM in Queens, NY agrees with Homes
assertion.
"It was a good opportunity to network
and exchange ideas with business, political
and community oriented persons. Walking
through the food pavilion and talking to the
vendors and sharing in their experiences
was awesome" he remarked. When asked to
expound on his overall experience at the
Jazz festival Clare said, "Several of the
sponsors I saw at the festival, have products
and services that are attractive to the diaspo-
ra market. Flow is one such entity that inci-
dentally launched a new product on Irie Jam
radio primarily for the Diaspora. I was hon-
ored to have interviewed them live on radio
for the benefit of my community and the
worldwide web."
Asked why he returns to the festival
each year Homes said, "Over the years I
have brought over 40 plus people together
from various parts of the US and it keeps
growing. It has become an annual retreat for
us and a time to see each other. It also gives
me an opportunity to meet new people and
to network with businesses. But most of all,
I look forward to just go back home."
A female business executive from New
York who did not want her name published
disclosed that she met and discussed busi-
ness with at least two companies including
Flow and CVM TV. Irie Jam Radio, the
loudest voice to the Jamaican community in
New York took their entire radio team to
Jamaica along with executives from Irie
Jamboree, Resort World Casino and
Mingles Cafe in the Bronx.
As part of their 20 year anniversary cel-
ebration, they rented a booth that was used
for daily live remote broadcast back to the
tri-state and online at iriejamfm.com. CEO
Bobby Clarke said he was able to have some
very promising business discussions right
their at the festival.
While no one can argue with the fact
that the festival is well produced and pro-
vides first class entertainment, the feeling is
that more can be done to lure more Diaspora
Jamaicans to the festival. When asked about
this, Homes said, "Over the years we have
seen great strides by the organizers to make
the event better.
