The “N-Word” and What It Meant To Our #Ancestors

JP LOGAN The N-Word

Those whom the law defined as property recounted various unique human experiences — their daily horrors and monotonies, how they freed themselves or learned of their emancipation, the surge of exhilaration upon securing freedom, and how they endured life on the edges of a white supremacist society in the decades thereafter. “If you truly knew what the N-word meant to our ancestors, you’d NEVER use it” As I pored over the narratives, I was struck less by their experiences, as heartrending as they were, than by how their experiences sculpted…

FREEDOM The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first. By Jim Morrison

++#JPLOGAN: #Business #Busyness by #BenjaminCardullo

Since the introduction of technology, working professionals are expected to be available around the clock. In fact, France, in an effort to protect their workers, passed a new law barring work e-mail after hours, under the long supported notion by economists that: working longer hours does not result in increased productivity. However, even spouses who choose to stay at home are becoming increasingly busy. Economist Juliet Schor describes the increasing standard of cleanliness that has brought additional work to stay-at-home parents: from 1925-1965 the amount of time spent on laundry…

#Suicide #Depression #Intervention #Prevention By James Cave Men’s Lifestyle Editor, The Huffington Post  A simple hand gesture has taken on a very important meaning across social media over the past month. When people post selfies with their thumbs and pointer fingers connected in a circle, commonly interpreted as a gesture of “OK” ― they’re actually trying to save lives. As part of the #ItsOkayToTalk campaign, these photos are promoting the idea that encouraging conversation about mental health and suicide could reduce the stigma that prevents men from speaking up about their struggles.

July4th-Independence-Day-JPLOGAN

THE BIRTH OF AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE When the initial battles in the Revolutionary War broke out in April 1775, few colonists desired complete independence from Great Britain, and those who did were considered radical. By the middle of the following year, however, many more colonists had come to favor independence, thanks to growing hostility against Britain and the spread of revolutionary sentiments such as those expressed in Thomas Paine’s bestselling pamphlet “Common Sense,” published in early 1776. On June 7, when the Continental Congress met at the Pennsylvania State House (later Independence…

Memorial Day – Decoration Day – Remembering Our Fallen

Memorial Day JP LOGAN

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in service of the United States of America. Over two dozen cities and towns claim to be the birthplace of Memorial Day. While Waterloo N.Y. was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson in May 1966, it’s difficult to prove conclusively the origins of the day. Regardless of the exact date or location of its origins, one thing is clear – Memorial Day was borne out of the Civil War…

Make Your #Relationship Incredible #MillionaireMindJPLOGAN

#1 LISTEN So many people claim “Communication is the cornerstone of a relationship.” I don’t agree. Not because communication isn’t valuable… but because for so many people, “communication” usually means to speak — to share their view/opinion/why they are right. In truth, the best way to appreciate and understand where someone else is coming from is through active listening and empathy. What to do: You don’t have to agree with them… just hear their view without adding in your need to be right. Listening is how problems can get worked…

Personality Traits – Millionaire Mind

Millionaire-Mind-Personality-Traits-JP-LOGAN

Many contemporary personality psychologists believe that there are five basic dimensions of personality, often referred to as the “Big 5” personality traits. The five broad personality traits described by the theory are extraversion, agreeableness, openness, conscientiousness and neuroticism. Trait theories of personality have long attempted to pin down exactly how many different personality traits exist. Earlier theories have suggested a various number of possible traits, including Gordon Allport’s list of 4,000 personality traits, Raymond Cattell’s 16 personality factors and Hans Eysenck’s three-factor theory. However, many researchers felt that Cattell’s theory…
