I HAVEN'T BEEN DEVOTING THE TIME I SHOULD HAVE TO THIS BLOG. As of now this blog is on hiatus, this will likely be temporary. It's wrong for me to just drop this blog without a quick note, and it's also wrong for me to just not continually update as was my plan when I brought it back. Now is that time to go on hiatus, and the plan for the future is to return.

CNBC: 32% of millennials would break up with their significant other for a $37,000 raise
When financial services company Comet surveyed 364 single employed millennials without children, they found that relationships were another area 20 to 36-year-olds were willing to cut back. In fact, 41 percent said they would end a relationship for a promotion.
No idea, if I should criticize this or not. Ending a relationship for a job seems like an extreme thing to do. At the same time it's about bettering yourself and perhaps this significant other may not be on board with your goals.

To explain what's being noted in the tweet you'll see at the Newsalert link. Here's the case of Ms. Korryn Gaines who's family got an award from a civil trial.

And then the case of an Australian woman - Justine Ruszczyk Damond - killed by a Somali born cop.

Both cases are tragic in different ways, Ms. Gaines was shot by police in front of her young son. MS Damond was trying to get police officer's attention after reporting a possible sexual assault.

THE MYTH OF THE BLACK FATHER: "The stereotype of the absent black father has been perpetuated by the U.S. news media for generations"

I may say more about this later, however, this is very informative. The title of this should really be the "myth of an absent Black father". [VIDEO]

SOMETHING PONDERED AT IT'S MY MIND TWO WEEKS AGO. Time to set up a tip jar at any of my blogs?
SMARTER LIVING: This is how you get stuff done

Also known as how to defeat procrastination. How many of us have such a problem?

WHILE I POSTED THIS OVER AT IT'S MY MIND, IT'S TIME TO SHARE THIS AGAIN. Where is Morehouse alum Tim Cunningham. He's been missing for almost two weeks in Atlanta, Georgia. I will share this ig post from our alma mater just so that you all will know what he looks like. Very odd case and hopefully he's safe and sound out there somewhere.
I SET UP A RAILCAM PAGE OVER AT IT'S MY MIND. A YouTube channel known as Virtual Railfan has a few live feeds that include La Plata, Missouri; Flagstaff, Arizona; Ashland, Virginia to name a few locals. I chose the feeds from La Plata & Flagstaff because those are stops on Amtrak's Southwest Chief. While I often enjoy watching Amtrak trains stop and take off from those locations, you will see freight traffic as well.
SINCE I DID MENTION THE RECENT SNOW STORM FROM EARLIER THIS MONTH, I feature over at Shedd School blog a video by artistmac about the politics of snow. A politician's response to a snow storm has meant the different between remaining in office or being a has been.
NOTED THE PASSING OF A MOREHOUSE ALUM LERONE BENNETT. He died last week and even shared a video where he talked about Abraham Lincoln.
THERE WAS A BUST OF ABE LINCOLN ON THE SOUTH SIDE. Thankfully we have dedicated public servants who know that this is a historic figure and we need to protect statues like there. Unfortunately Lincoln - the man who freed the slaves - is subject to the whims of SJWs who want to punish historic figures for things they did or represent in their lifetimes.
UNDER A DIFFERENT ITERATION I BROUGHT BACK AN OLD BLOG. My Mind's Eye where basically I hope to share pics taken on my phone. One of the featured post was a video taken during major snowstorm that took place this month. I'll share it here as well. [VIDEO]

OVER AT SHEDD SCHOOL BLOG - A "NINTH WARD" BLOG, old news over a current gubernatorial candidate's long ago comments made on a wiretap with corrupt political legend ousted governor Rod Blagojevich. Blago is mostly known for attempting to auction off President Obama's old US Senate seat for the highest bidder.

The controversy is J.B. Pritzker - running for the Democrat nomination for governor - made comments categorizing Black Illinois politicos as either crass or safe. It of course caused offense amongst some in the Black community.

EARLIER THIS WEEK I SHARED ANOTHER VIDEO FROM VICTOR MAGGIO. Maggio is currently doing a series on the top 10 violent neighborhoods in Chicago - actually community areas. Click on the tweet below and you'll be able to see the vid at The Sixth Ward.

ONE IDEA I DID HAVE FOR THIS BLOG ARE TO SHARE POSTS FROM MY OTHER BLOGS. While it's not the most effective idea to gain readership, one thing I did want to do was at least share what I have been doing on my other blogs. As of this moment and effective way of providing content for this blog, wouldn't you say?

Many of those posts that I hope to share here won't be very timely, however, just an indication of what I have been blogging about lately!
I HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN ABOUT THIS PLACE. I just haven't had much inclination to post here much as of late. Though to satisfy your appetites about this segment of History's Pawn Stars where Rick Harrison checks out Abraham Lincoln's parlor card. It features a photography from the great early American photography Matthew Brady who was well know for his images from the Civil War. [VIDEO]

VSB: We Need To Start Barking At White People Who Speak Out Of Turn

Look at the title and don't tell me that you're not saying to yourself "are you kidding me?"
BICENTENNIAL OF FREDERICK DOUGLASS' BIRTH. The famed Black abolitionist is in the news with the left attempting to distort Douglass' legacy. To start I didn't know he was an ordained minister, so is the left trying to dismiss religion as an imporant part of life in America of the 19th century. [VIDEO]
