News on the Breast Cancer Front

A month can’t go by without hearing about a friend, or a friend of a friend’s, breast cancer scare or diagnosis. My heart sinks every time. The anxiety of not knowing can drive you insane. “Staying calm is easier said than done,” a friend reminds me. We like to empower you with information so that […]

World AIDS Day: Don’t Just Blog/Tweet About It, Be About It

December 1st is World AIDS Day. A day where the bloggers and tweeters will wax eloquently about the importance of getting tested, raising awareness, and taking action.

Have We No Shame? Hat tip to Politics from the Eyes of An Ebony Mom for highlighting a recent article written by Star Jones for Uptown Magazine. I’m not a Star Jones fan. But I’m also not a hater. She operates in a realm of celebrity I rarely pay attention to. So it was with […]

Marie Claire has an excellent article on women professionals navigating their ethnic or religious traditions within the work environment: In the last decade, the number of minority women in mid- and senior-level managerial positions increased almost 50 percent, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
