Do You Have the Bug to Travel?
November 11, 2021
There are a few other things we should consider when we are traveling to help us be safe in other ways other than just our health.  As you travel know your surroundings, try not to look like a tourist, it can make you a mark for robbery or something even worse.  Make sure all your paperwork is in order and make copies of your important documents such as your passport, license, etcetera and put in a safe space. Make sure someone in your family knows about your travels (but you do not have to tell the world) so they can keep an eye out for you and your home. Oh, and by the way, check-in with them to let them know you are okay. Safeguard your belongings and be careful of your critical information when using public Wi-Fi’s. Bottom line, use good judgment. ... read more »

There is No Time Limit for Justice
October 7, 2021
Justice means giving someone what he or she deserves. Finally, after facing numerous allegations of sexual misconduct, payoffs to victims and unpopular acquittals singer R. Kelly was found guilty of racketeering and eight counts of sex trafficking in a Brooklyn federal courtroom. The jury found him guilty of being the ringleader in a decades-long criminal enterprise to recruit women and underage girls for sex. Allegations of inappropriate sexual relationships with minors have swirled around R Kelly for years, especially after his illegal marriage to the R&B singer Aaliyah in 1994 when she was just fifteen. The term racketeering is usually associated with organized crime, referring to a group of individuals that attempt to extort, coerce or otherwise create some type of scheme or a racket. In the case of R Kelly, the court and prosecutors felt that his expansive entourage of staff and enablers around the musician constituted a criminal enterprise. ... read more »
