It’s that time of year to Celebrate and Remember

It's that time of year to Celebrate and Remember Tagged with:

What is that sound that I hear? Oh yes, it is the sound of a bat cracking while it hits a ball. It is the popping of a ball into a glove and oh yes, the smell of free cut green grass. You know that I am talking about baseball.

And the Grammy Goes To..

And the Grammy Goes To.. Tagged with:

I am sure we all were excited to see the Grammy awards last week. Personally, I could care less. I am actually someone that does not watch that much T.V. I did for some reason want to watch the tributes to David Bowie, BB King and Glenn Frey. I am not that big a fan of any of them but I do appreciate their work and success. Plus, like many, I was shocked by their passing away. However, as I switched back and forth to catch them I did happen to see Mr. Stevie Wonder present an award and make the statement of the year!

4 Tips to Fight Obesity

4 Tips to Fight Obesity Tagged with:

Overweight and obese Americans regularly experience various forms of discrimination in many social settings and even at the workplace. For instance, on average, obese men and women earn $2 and $4 less per hour respectively at the workplace compared to non-obese workers. Sadly, a weight-based stigma can have a negative impact on a person’s health, self-esteem, and performance at work or school. This notwithstanding, 154.7 million Americans aged 20 years and older are overweight or obese. Fortunately, you can fight obesity and maintain a healthy BMI by doing the following:

Another Winning Play for Alabama Sports

Another Winning Play for Alabama Sports Tagged with:

As we are in the middle of winter, a behind the scenes event has happened that needs to have some attention. No, it is not Super Bowl 50, halftime shows or any other sporting event. However, it does have something to do with sports in Alabama. Now, I know some of you have heard about the football team, but something even more important has happened.

International Day of Tolerance

International Day of Tolerance Tagged with:

On November 16, I will be celebrating the United Nation’s International Day for Tolerance by doing what I usually fail to do; I will pack away my assumptions in my bag when I interact with people. This conscious effort is difficult for someone who looks different compared to the societal norm, someone with a physical disability or someone who can’t interact in a socially acceptable way because of their limitations is daily confronted with intolerance.

Questions arise from Neal’s airline issue Tagged with:

The 29-year-old man with cerebral palsy allegedly waited more than 30 minutes on a United Airlines plane parked at a Reagan International Airport gate while workers were supposed to bring an aisle wheelchair to his seat so he could get off the plane and go to the restroom.

The Top 10 Myths and Misconceptions About Anxiety

The Top 10 Myths and Misconceptions About Anxiety Tagged with:

Anxiety is a much-misunderstood psychological condition. Some question its existence as a “real” health-disorder, leaving sufferers lost in a world that does not understand them. However, as any psychology professional knows, anxiety is as real and potentially incapacitating a disorder as depression, and – like depression – can only be healed with a well-planned mix of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), professional counseling, and medication. If properly-treated, anxiety sufferers can go on to live happy, fully-functional professional and personal lives.

Disability and Unemployment

Disability and Unemployment Tagged with:

For years I have always heard that unemployment for people with disabilities has been at or around 70%. This number has always been the same in my 10 plus years of public speaking, 20 years in the workforce of serving people with disabilities and the 30 plus years that I have been a person with a disability. At times it seems as if this would never change. How can it? How would we know for sure? Something has got to change. What can be done to make a dent in this number?
