Love & War

Let em know, young buck i... By: Dilated Peoples Original
Let em know, young buck in the game
Started off hardheaded, stuck in my ways
But things change and days turn to nights
And nights are cold if your people ain’t right
My squad it straight, split up the cake in three ways
My partners down, I’m feeling the pain
And when we up, find us out trying to live
I got lots of love for my crew, that is
I grew up stressed out trying to hold in the pain
But kept my mind right, sketched the highlights
I enjoy life but fight for my rights
And your right to fight for yours

NoBullying releases a Guide to Teenagers Bullying

NoBullying.com releases a guide to Teenagers’ Bullying – http://nobullying.com/teenagers-bullying/.

It is not a simple task to be a teenager. With raging hormones and awkward social interactions contributing to a chaotic feeling of impending youth, adding bullying and peer pressure can turn a teenager’s life can to a recipe for disaster. NoBullying releases a guide to teenagers bullying.

The guide defines at first what is bullying and how it contributes to emotional abuse and an uneasy path through life.

Teenagers’ bullying actions can include, but are not limited to, threatening or demeaning behaviors meant to belittle or target someone and hostile cyber bullying texts. Those actions can also include obsessive calls, stalking, internet stalking, harassment, social media attacks and name calling. Other berating behaviors can also include physical intimidation and even more overt physical acts of violence and abuse.

The guide also lists where bullying is most common in the United States and around the world as well as tips for parents on teaching children how to cope with being bullied.

The moment a child starts feeling a sense of importance and popularity without having a lot to to do with achievements or personal traits is one of the main causes behind turning into a bully. Being seen as a leader will attract friends to join the bully’s bullying group, thus giving the bully more power and attention, which is exactly what he/she needs.

Another major factor in bullying is self esteem. Self esteem issues can also contribute to bullying dynamics. For a teenager, bullying can seem like an easy solution to raise low self esteem. This is not a conscious decision, but an underlying desire to undercut others to make themselves feel more powerful.

The guide also warns against the effects of child abuse. With a violent upbringing, a child growing up in an environment of parental bullying can make him/her more inclined to lash out against others. It is also a recipe for adult bullying other adults in the future.

Knowing what to look for in adolescent behavior as well as proper preventative education and a strong dialog between caregivers are all needed attributes to minimize the damage of such behaviors. Bullying may be unavoidable in some cases, but adults have the power to protect and minimize the damage potentially happening to teens.

The guide is one call to action for parents, educators and health professionals to campaign strongly against all sorts of bullying.

Macartan Mulligan, Co-Founder of NoBullying.com, said “Bullying isn’t just hitting someone in the schoolyard, sometimes bullying can be in the form of spreading evil rumors or saying unkind words. All sorts of bullying need to stop today. ”

He added that parents and teachers should make a point to educate the younger generations about the sad outcome of bullying online and offline. According to Mulligan, it is quite imperative to press for more firm laws condemning all acts of bullying and harassment.

NoBullying.com features many pages dedicated to parents, teens, teachers, health professionals as well as posts related to cyber safety and the latest news about law making concerning curbing Bullying worldwide as well as inspirational Bullying Poems and famous Bullying Quotes.

The website regularly updates its bullying statistics and cyber bullying statistics as it is essential to understand how widespread the bullying epidemic is. It also regularly runs cyber bullying surveys and questionnaires to get recent updated statistics on everything related to cyberbullying.

He also added that anyone suffering from bullying in any form or way can always find advice and help on the NoBullying website – but if anyone is suffering from severe bullying or cyber bullying, the best thing is to talk to someone locally – a parent, teacher or local organization that has been set up to help with specialized councilors to deal with this topic.

Proletariat Blues

Back in the days when I w... By: Blue Scholars Original
Back in the days when I was a teenager
Minimum wage earning, rocking an apron
I was pushing hella carts asking plastic or paper
To bastard ass customers plus most of us had,
Relatives working in the same supermarket
When boss wasn’t looking rolled the dice on the carpet
In the lunch room, listening to Biggie and Nas
But not as much as Snoop, Forty Water, and Pac
Me, I rocked the Walkman instead writing rhymes
In my head often bored, I’d recite them outloud
And memorize a song long before I’d write it down
In lunch room freestyles is where I learned to clown
Plantation style (?), yellow, brown, black majority
Half the young cats either enlisted in the Army
Or the Navy or Marines, but I was having dreams
And I ain’t even halfway there yet

It seems that we never get paid what our labor is worth
That’s why we often in a daze on the way to our work
And when we get there, we can’t wait to be out
So let me tell you what it’s about
And now we never get paid what our labor is worth
That’s why we often in a daze on the way to our work
And when we get there, we can’t wait to be out
So let me tell you what it’s about

Franchise industry expert aims to add six additional rally’s restaurants to Virginia.

Checkers and Rally’s Restaurants, Inc., the largest double drive-thru chain in the United States, has announced plans to expand its presence in Virginia with the opening of two new Rally’s restaurants in 2014. The brand’s growth will be spearheaded by Craig and Debbie Leonard, food franchise veterans, who hope to add six more units to their current portfolio of seven restaurants by 2016.

“We’re very excited to have Craig and Debbie take Rally’s to the next level in Virginia,” Jennifer Durham, Vice President of Franchise Development for Checkers and Rally’s Restaurants, Inc. said. “This team’s extensive experience in the food franchise industry, the capital investments planned and their enthusiasm for our unique, bold flavors will ensure that we will see outstanding growth and success in the region.”

The Leonards join the brand with more than 60 years of combined restaurant experience. Debbie, who will personally supervise the market, first joined McDonald’s at the age of 16 as a team member, where she worked her way up to Management after graduating college. She then worked as both a Business Consultant and Training Consultant before retiring from the company in 2012. In between her tenure at McDonald’s, Deborah also worked for Rally’s as a district manager in New Orleans after relocating to the city to support Craig in his career.

Impressed by Rally’s products, corporate support, and business model, the Leonards purchased seven existing Rally’s restaurants in October 2013, and are already moving forward with plans to open two new restaurants in early 2014. The Leonards’ development plans include adding at least two restaurants every year until 2016.

“The restaurants we bought had great potential to succeed. When we bought them, they were experiencing double-digit percentage losses and now we’re seeing positive sales growth,” Debbie Leonard said. “We’ve rejuvenated the units by replacing most of the equipment and renovating the interior and exterior of the restaurants. We also motivated our employees—most of whom have worked for Rally’s for a long time—by providing new uniforms and explaining our shared vision with them.”

Her company, Mission Foods, pays its employees for Thanksgiving, Christmas and their birthdays, and is committed to offering career paths to team members that wish to advance with Rally’s. In fact, she implemented a sales contest where Caran Edney, General Manager of their Newport News restaurant won a cruise for two to the Caribbean that she will enjoy with her sister in March of this year.

Debbie is confident that there is plenty of room for more Rally’s locations in the market, which has not seen a new Rally’s opening in over 10 years, and has already hired another district manager to assist in moving the franchise forward in the market. This winning team continues to search for great talent for both Management and Team Members roles as they grow their restaurant base.

“The Rally’s franchise opportunity continues to draw interest from business savvy entrepreneurs, who see the constant menu innovation and growth opportunities in new and existing markets as being a recipe for success,” Durham said.

Rally’s continues to add craveable menu selections and introduce daring flavors to its fans. Options such as Monsterella Stix, Cold Creations and the original Big Buford® aim to bring the freshest ingredients and boldest flavors to hungry guests. The company continues to innovate, and remains true to its commitment to provide crazy good food at an exceptional value.

Checkers continues to grow nationally with opportunities for ownership available in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami, Philadelphia, New York and Washington D.C, among other cities.

ABOUT RALLY’S

Checkers and Rally’s Restaurants, Inc. is the largest double drive-thru restaurant chain in the United States. The company develops, owns, operates and franchises both Checkers and Rally’s® restaurants. Based in Tampa, Fla., it has almost 800 restaurants open across the U.S. In recent years, the brand has been awarded several of the industry’s most prestigious awards including: “Best Drive-Thru in America” by QSR Magazine and the “Hot!

Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens is celebrating International Tiger Day on Tuesday, July 29, 2014 including special presentations at Tiger Forest, a tiger paw painting raffle, a photo contest, and more including sharing how choices at the grocery store can help tigers in Asia.

Naples, FLORIDA: Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens is celebrating International Tiger Day on Tuesday, July 29, 2014. This global event is held annually on July 29 to both celebrate these majestic cats as well as bring attention to what we can do to help this endangered species. Between 9:30 and 3:30, the Naples Chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keepers will be sharing how choices at the grocery store can either harm or help tigers and other rare wildlife. Special presentations are also scheduled at Tiger Forest at 12:15 and 3:00. Plus, guests can participate in a raffle for a chance to win one of two pieces of art painted by the paws of Naples Zoo’s Malayan tigers and even submit their best tiger pic in a Facebook Photo Contest!

Shopping for Tigers

An ingredient commonly found in our soaps, cookies, frozen foods, and many other household items often comes from plantations that clear-cut the jungle homes of rhinos, orangutans, tigers, and other endangered species. It’s called palm oil but goes by dozens of different ingredient names making it hard to identify on labels. But just like consumer demand created dolphin-safe tuna, shoppers choosing products made from sustainable palm oil are starting to make a difference. You can learn more at http://www.napleszoo.org/palmoil and download the free app there to see if the companies making your favorite products love tigers and other animals as much as you do.

Tiger Facebook Photo Contest

Naples Zoo is hosting a fun photo contest where entrants can post images of the tigers at Naples Zoo playing in their pool or going face-to-face at the glass – or any tiger photo they have snapped anywhere. The person with the most VOTES for their photo will win their choice of a Family or Grandparent Naples Zoo Membership along with a plush tiger toy gift basket compliments of the Naples Zoo Gift Shop. To enter, visit the Zoo’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/napleszoo and click the Tiger Photo Contest tab. The contest is now open so photographers can enter anytime. Contest ends at midnight on Wednesday, August 13, 2014.
