Blacks need to know: The unheard story of David and Goliath - Malcolm Gladwell

The other part of the story of David and Goliath. Preparation + Strategy+ Opportunity = Success.
The video link:
http://www.ted.com/talks/malcolm_gladwell_the_unheard_story_of_david_and_goliath.html

It's a classic underdog tale: David, a young shepherd armed only with a sling, beats Goliath, the mighty warrior. The story has transcended its biblical origins to become a common shorthand for unlikely victory. But, asks Malcolm Gladwell, is that really what the David and Goliath story is about?  Detective of fads and emerging subcultures, chronicler of jobs-you-never-knew-existed, Malcolm Gladwell's work is toppling the popular understanding of bias, crime, food, marketing, race, consumers and intelligence.  http://www.ted.com/speakers/malcolm_gladwell.html 

Be prepared, use strategy, make opportunity !

Solving the Mystery of 666 (VIDEO) - Rev. Dr. Ishakamusa Barashango

SOLVING THE MYSTERY OF 666 - Solving the Mystery of 666: The Degeneracy of the Roman Catholic Priesthood as Foretold in the Bible

Solving the Mystery of 666: The Degeneracy of the Roman Catholic Priesthood as Foretold in the Bible
About Barashango:
Rev. Dr. Ishakamusa Barashango began his journey to Nsamando, the land of the Ancestors on January 14, 2004. The dynamic minister, author, historian, educator and motivational speaker was born April 27, 1938 to Florine Mason in Philadelphia, PA. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in Religion from Oakwood College, Huntsville, AL and was awarded Honorary Doctor of Philosophy Degrees from the College of Doctors of the New Afrikan University Network System, Washington, DC and the Sankore Institute operating under the auspices of Texas Southern Universty, Houston,TX. Rev. Barashango founded the Temple of the Black Messiah, School of History and Religion and co-founded Fourth Dynasty Publishing Company of Silver Spring. He also taught history and religion at several colleges and universities. In August, 1996 he married Lydia Umyemi who worked with him to establish the Temple of the Black Messiah, New World Church of All Faiths, Philadelphia, PA. Baba is survived by his wife Lydia Umyemi, his children; Daima Abdur-Rasheed, Wayne (Chaka) Mason, Damali Mason, Osagefo, T-Shaka Changa Cunningham, Njema Walker, Imari Marcel Nialah Barashano Washington, several grandchildren, and a host of grandchildren. Condolences and donations may be sent in care of Lydia Umyemi, Cornucopia, 4942 Parkside Avenue, Philadelphia, PA, 19131. A tribute is planned for February 14, 2004.
Dr. Barashango departed from us to another sphere on January 14 in Philadelphia. He apparently succumbed to a heart attack during his morning walk. Barashango, who was elevated to a grand master scholar in 2000 while in Kemet and co-founder and creative director of the Fourth Dynasty Publishing Company in Silver Spring, Maryland, would have been 66 in April.
“I’ve known Dr. Barashango for more than a quarter of a century,” said Dr. Jack Felder. “In fact, we talked for about two hours two days before he made his transition. One thing he always stressed and that most impressed me was that we can never free our minds as long as we view God as a white man or as long as we keep worshiping white people’s Holy-days (Holidays). He was a pillar of our community.”
Dr. Barashango, affectionately known as Baba, received his bachelor of arts degree in religion from Oakwood College in Huntsville, Alabama. He studied for his master’s degree at Northeastern Seminary in Takoma Park, Maryland. The New Afrikan University Network System of Washington, D.D. saluted him with an honorary Doctor of Philosophy Degree in 1979.

Jullien Gordon - Graduate college with a job you love and less debt.

How to graduate college with a job you love & less debt: Jullien G


The former, linear model of success is obsolete. Students are not getting the return on education investments that they did just 1 decade ago. Jullien Gordon helps this new generation realize their full potential by identifying four types of capital that blend work in harmony. The need for balance between book smarts and street smarts is more crucial than ever.

The video can be viewed here: http://youtu.be/29tJAgc54RA 
Jullien Gordon is the son of two doctors. As a result, people expected him to be some sort of super-doctor. Instead he became a superhero who goes by the name The PurposeFinder. As CEO of the Department of Motivated Vehicles, he spends his life helping individuals and organizations discover their purpose within and then helps them create business models that allow them to make a living doing what they love. Some people call it coaching and consulting, but Jullien calls it helping people D.R.E.A.M. awake. According to Jullien, to D.R.E.A.M. means to have your Desired Relationships Employment And Money and success is the equilibrium of these three elements for each individual.

He is also passionate about writing. He has published four books—The 8 Cylinders of Success: How To Align your Personal and Professional Purpose,Good Excuse Goals: How to End Procrastination & Perfectionism Forever, The Career Change Challenge and 101 Tings To Do Before You Graduate. He blogs regularly at JullienGordon.com on millennials, purpose, passions, and professional development.

In 2007, Jullien received two masters degrees from Stanford University—his MBA and Masters in Education—and in 2003 he received his B.A. from UCLA in 3 years. Jullien Gordon is originally from Oakland, California and currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.
