Gratitude in A Difficult Year

This year took so many twists and turns we haven’t been able to keep count– often leaving us in complete overwhelm with a whirlwind of thoughts and emotions. Grief, anxiety, and sheer disappointment are just a handful that comes to mind when we reflect on the endless amount of curveballs life has thrown over the past year. Tragedy and loss plagued the entire world, leaving us speechless day after day. Despite the darkness that loomed for what seems like an eternity there has been an outpour of positives that we can’t forget to remember. As 2020 quickly comes to a close, let’s take the time to decompress and reflect on the happier moments we were lucky enough to live through and witness. Even though Thanksgiving may look less traditional than previous years, we still can readily name some things that shift our hearts to a place of gratitude.

Faizon Love Sues Universal For Racial Discrimination For Omitting Black Couple From ‘Couples Retreat’ Publicity Posters

The seeds of racism were planted in Hollywood many years ago, but it still bears the fruit of it today. According to The Hollywood Reporter, actor Faizon Love has filed a lawsuit against Universal for leaving him and his “wife” co-star Kali Hawk off posters promoting the 2009 movie, “Couples Retreat.” Love and Hawk was, coincidentally, the only couple that wasn’t white.

According to the lawsuit Love filed, he stated he was “aghast” when finding out that Universal included him and Hawk in the domestic movie poster but, took the couple off for the international version.

“Universal Studios had no problem featuring Black actors in the comedic film,” it says in the complaint. “But when it came to publicizing the film to international audiences, Universal Studios chose to segregate the motion picture’s White and Black actors… Rather than enjoy maximum visibility with the film’s release, Mr. Love was demoted … Read the rest

Early this year, I encountered some staggering news: Practice Fusion, a company I founded in 2005 and left in 2015, had reached a settlement with the DOJ for suddenly partnering with an opioid manufacturer, and for encouraging doctors on the platform to prescribe opioids to patients.

As someone with friends and family who have fallen victim to the opioid crisis, seeing my life’s work corrupted in this way has been especially devastating. How should I — and other founders — prevent something like this from ever happening again?

In the beginning, I’d founded the cloud-based, electronic

Options for Teacher Student Loan Forgiveness

Loan forgiveness is a trade-off. It’s about incentivizing graduates to work in low paying or otherwise undesirable positions in exchange for erasing or significantly reducing their student loan balance. Without these programs, important community institutions would be severely understaffed.

If you’re a teacher or education student reading this, those criteria probably sound familiar.

Many school districts struggle to fully staff their schools, especially when it comes to certain positions. Loan forgiveness programs are one of the best ways for them to attract job candidates and retain them for long enough to make an impact.

Teachers have several options when it comes to loan forgiveness. Here’s what you should know about each one.

Teacher Loan Forgiveness

The Teacher Loan Forgiveness Program is the only federal loan forgiveness program specifically designed for teachers. Math or science teachers who teach in secondary schools or special education teachers can have up to $17,500 worth … Read the rest
