What's all these gadgets for?
8/18/2021 6:13:12 PM

By Dr. James L. Snyder   Without any hesitation, I will gladly admit that I am on the short side when it comes to gadgets. For me, most of them do not make any sense at all. Instead, I like things simple and easy. As for the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, she is obsessed with gadgets. She loves them almost as much as I love Apple Fritters. I've gone into her "Craft Room" and noticed all the gadgets neatly placed where they belong. Unfortunately, I could not tell you the identification of any of them. I am gadgets-illiterate while she is...

Remembering the Rosenwald schools
8/18/2021 5:55:11 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA As students start a new school year, this is a chance to honor the legacy of a group of schools that educated hundreds of thousands of Black children. From 1913 to 1932, nearly 5,000 “Rosenwald schools” were built in 15 states, mostly in rural Southern communities. These schools were built specifically to educate Black children, and by 1928 one in three rural Black schoolchildren in the South attended a Rosenwald school. Their history, and the remaining school buildings themselves, are now being reclaimed and...

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A VACCINATOR OUTREACH WORKER 20 SOMETHINGS LEAD THE CHARGE
8/11/2021 5:11:39 PM

by Ethnic Media Services Photos by Jocelyn Zambrano   Jocelyn Zambrano, 20, drives up to an hour and a half a day through Los Angeles County, from the Wilmington neighborhood to the San Fernando Valley, thinking about how to get more Latinx people vaccinated against COVID-19. “I get up at 5:40 a.m. and at 7 in the morning, I leave for San Fernando,” Zambrano said. “I start at 8:30 am at the office of Pueblo y Salud, a nonprofit organization in San Fernando. I spend the morning planning and starting at 3 p.m., my team and I are going to knock on...

COVID survivor: 'Have to start my life all over again'
8/11/2021 4:56:24 PM

By Sudhin Thanawala   ATLANTA (AP)—As her father lay dying last August from the coronavirus at a Georgia hospital, Lindsay Schwarz put her hands on his arms and softly sang him lines from their favorite songs. Eugene Schwarz had been admitted three weeks earlier, but the hospital had not allowed his daughter to visit him for fear of spreading the virus. The 72-year-old looked nothing like the ebullient, crisply dressed cardiologist who used to kiss her on the forehead before heading off to work. “I was hugging my father, and it didn't really feel like my...

To shake hands or not? An age-old human gesture now in limbo
8/11/2021 4:51:03 PM

By Heather Hollingsworth   As the pandemic took hold, a Kansas City-area meeting and event planning business began hawking “I Shake Hands” stickers to help ease awkward social encounters. “We didn't want the sticker to say, ‘We Don't Shake Hands' because that is kind of off-putting,” said John DeLeon, vice president of operations and sales at MTI Events, adding that the idea was that anti-shakers could simply choose not to wear one of the stickers. “But if someone had the sticker on in that group, then that was the indication that...

Healthy food for hungry families
8/11/2021 4:23:51 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   “I worry in regards to child obesity…diabetes, cholesterol, and all of those things, but personally I worry more about the children than myself.” “My kids—they’re the ones that I worry about eating right or making sure everything is good.” Most parents know the worry of trying to make sure their children are eating well and getting the right balance of the healthy foods they need to grow and thrive. Those universal worries become even harder for families who are already...

Temptation is oh so tempting
8/11/2021 4:14:00 PM

By Dr. James L. Snyder   At the beginning of the week, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage informed me that she and some of her friends would be going thrift store shopping on Thursday. “Now,” she said, “you will have to take care of your lunch. You think you can do that?” I was smiling so hard on the inside I could hardly keep it from my face. Thursday morning, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage said, “Do you remember what’s going to happen today?” Did I remember? How in the world could I ever forget? I walked her to...

Don't judge a person by their cover-up
8/5/2021 4:47:14 PM

By Dr. James L. Snyder   Have you ever had one of those Déjà vu moments? The other week I was in the shopping mall to pick up some items for the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. On this occasion, I was walking down the mall and stopped dead in my tracks. Coming at me was someone that looked like my old aunt Elsie. She had the same hairdo, wearing the same clothes, and I was shocked because aunt Elsie died over 20 years ago. Aunt Elsie was one of the relatives in my family that goes way back. Once you met her, you would never forget her for shore. What you...

Don Quixote had his windmills…
8/5/2021 4:12:03 PM

By LRon Brooks   And Ponce De Leon took his cruise. So where are they now? I confess, this self-imposed occasional writing gig only ever leads me chasing down one bunny hole after another, all inevitably pointed right straight at the existential questions, the impossible themes. It used to make me feel special. These days though, that kind of self-indulgent, formerly esoteric navel-gazing has been reduced to run-of-the-mill editorial low-hanging fruit. And there’s a scarily good reason for that. Marvel® movies aside, what passes for the real world in 2021 just...
