NBA Draft vs. Brexit

The NBA draft can be the turning point for ones favorite team.  Decisions for the future of the franchise can be shaped.  Now why in the hell do I mention this in the same thought as the BREXIT vote is mainly to get most people to say “who is BREXIT” and what team drafted him.   (I was tuned up to see what  European players where coming into the league since the way people where speaking on the NBA draft there was only two players that mattered.   At least what’s his name?   helped the Knicks a little in last years draft – yet still no playoffs).  So here are two links:

One to see your favorite  NBA team, and see who got what and who got traded.

The other to see why the Prime Minister Cameron resigned due to the BREXIT vote to leave the EU as the world reacts and stock markets drop worldwide.

Feel free to enlighten yourself and see how the decisions of others can affect you.  Because the latter will cause  turmoil and chaos in the financial markets today and days to come.  Buckle up for the future is an action program.

Health Beats: Suicide

 

Nurse Bowick Label 

 Hello Rochester, this is Nurse Bowick. Have we got something to talk about? Oh Yeah.

 

 

This week we wrap up our men’s health series with a closer look at Black men and suicide. Suicide is a serious public health issue, and men represent nearly 80% of all suicides. When Don Cornelius the founder of Soul Train took his life, we were reminded of the lasting harmful effects suicide has on Black families, individuals and communities.

Suicide, the act of taking one’s own life on purpose, was once thought of as something that Black People just didn’t do. Historically, the rate of suicide in Blacks compared to other groups was lower. However, current research suggest a disturbing paradigm shift. A study published in JAMA Pediatrics (2015) suggesting a rise in Black boys committing suicide, and recent reports suggesting a decline in Black men committing suicide, has prompted the Black family to gain a better understanding of suicide, increase awareness and learn suicide prevention methods.

 

In light of conflicting and often confusing statistics, the question still remains unanswered,  why are Black boys and Black men killing themselves? Twenty years ago Reverend Cecil Murray answered this question as such, “Despair is increasing, and that despair is economic, political, educational and social. The breakdown of the family leaves the young adult male without a hands on mentor. America is getting angrier and meaner, and those without an economic base find an outlet in self destructive behavior.”   Sadly, his response is still applicable today.

Folks, the undeniable links to suicide appears to be poverty and depression, and were gonna talk about it Tuesday morning at 7:15 on Health Beats with the Wake-Up Club on 103.9 WDKX.

 National Suicide Prevention Lifeline1-800-273-TALK (8255), available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The service is available to anyone. All calls are confidential.
