Balance..... Do You Have It?

In life we as a people and even as a person are placed with speed bumps and obstacles in life. Some people speed up to run right over the speed bumps, not knowing what type of damage it may have on the vehicle. Others may slowdown to a complete stop and get stuck, not sure if the vehicle can even make it over the speed bumps. While others slowdown examining the speed bumps looking for the smoothest way to go over it.

In this day and time we must have balance in our life. With all of the different life changes in our life, the economy falling into all-time highs, not even knowing if job security even exist anymore, and losing more and more trust towards the government.

Remember before you got married and had a family? Do you? I bet you do!!! You probably bring it up everyday in verbal or even mental state of mind. Thinking back to all of the exciting things you use to do. Well today is that day. it's time to take that walk you were missing. Go out with your friends for lunch or dinner. It does not have to be in the club to have a good time. The club was not what made it a good time. It was the social experiences you had with those close individuals of yours. Find a quite "Me" time somewhere. Just a few moments can change your perspective in life.

Look in the mirror!!!! Are you Happy? That can change and you are the only one able to make that change.

Today is the start of a new week. The start of a new you. Today is the initial steps for more balance in your life.

I wrote this because I love you and I have lost balance in life and know with your commitment it will help me to regain my balance back.

Your brother and friend,

Brother Hannibal S. Muhammad

P.S. balance is the mental steadiness or emotional stability; habit of calm behavior, judgment, etc.

Wal-Mart Wins Class Action Lawsuit

This Article was pulled from Yahoo News.


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Supreme Court threw out on Monday a massive class-action sex-discrimination lawsuit against Wal-Mart Stores Inc, the biggest ever such case, in a major victory for the world's largest retailer and for big business in general.

The justices unanimously ruled that more than 1 million female employees nationwide could not proceed together in the lawsuit seeking billions of dollars and accusing Wal-Mart of paying women less and giving them fewer promotions.

The Supreme Court agreed with Wal-Mart, the largest private U.S. employer, that the class-action certification violated federal rules for such lawsuits.

It accepted Wal-Mart's argument that the female employees in different jobs at 3,400 different stores nationwide and with different supervisors do not have enough in common to be lumped together in a single class-action lawsuit.

The ruling was cheered by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce business group as the most important class action case in more than a decade but denounced by women's groups.

It represented a major victory for Wal-Mart, which also has faced legal battles including an attempt to unionize and to block the giant retailer from opening stores in New York and other places.

"We are pleased with today's ruling and believe the court made the right decision. Wal-Mart has had strong policies against discrimination for many years," the Bentonville, Arkansas-based company said in a statement.

Wal-Mart shares were up 18 cents to $53.02 in late trading after rising as much as 1.3 percent earlier in the day.

Gisel Ruiz, a company executive vice president, said the ruling effectively ended the class-action lawsuit.

Theodore Boutrous, Wal-Mart's lead attorney in the case, told reporters, "This decision will have a significant impact on other class actions."

The court rejected class-action status but three remaining female plaintiffs still can pursue their individual claims.


Lawyers for the plaintiffs acknowledged the ruling raised substantial hurdles to bring such challenges forward but warned that Wal-Mart may regret this route because it could lead to lengthier litigation in many more courtrooms.

"I think it is a big win for very large companies because I think part of the message from the majority's decision is ... there are companies that are too big to be held accountable in a single forum for these kinds of practices," said Joseph Sellers, a lawyer for the women who sued the retailer.

He said they were considering options that included pursuing class-action lawsuits with smaller groups of women or proceeding individually, noting that more than 12,000 people have contacted them about discrimination at Wal-Mart.

Two employees of Wal-Mart and its Sam's Club stores who were leading the class-action effort were disappointed with the ruling but said that they would continue their claims.

"We still are determined to go forward and we still are determined to present our case in court and I believe that we will prevail there," said Wal-Mart employee Betty Dukes.

The ruling in the biggest business case of the high court's 2010-11 term could affect pending class-action lawsuits against the tobacco industry and Costco Wholesale Corp.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said ending pay discrimination was a key priority for President Barack Obama but that the U.S. government was not a party to the lawsuit.

"Our lawyers are studying the decision right now to determine what effects it might have," Carney said.

The Obama administration did not take a position in the top court case, although the federal government's Equal Employment Opportunity Commission previously supported the workers.


Christopher Landau, an attorney at the Chicago-based Kirkland & Ellis law firm, called it the most important class-action decision since the 1960s. "The days of 'drive-by' class certification are over," he said.

Justice Antonin Scalia concluded for the court majority that the Wal-Mart class was not properly certified.

"Because respondents wish to sue about literally millions of employment decisions at once, they need some glue holding the alleged reasons for all those decisions together," he said.

The court's four other conservatives joined all of Scalia's ruling. The court's four liberals joined part of it but dissented in another part.

Large class-action lawsuits make it easier for big groups of plaintiffs to sue corporations and they have led to huge payouts by tobacco, oil and food companies.

Companies such as Wal-Mart have sought to limit such lawsuits to individual or small groups of plaintiffs. The Supreme Court, with a conservative majority that often ruled for businesses, has rejected huge class-action lawsuits.

The Supreme Court case is Wal-Mart Stores Inc v. Betty Dukes, No. 10-277.

The Power Of Modesty- The Key to Health, Beauty, & Longevity

I am so excited to start off 2011 with an interview with Kevin A. Muhammad. He is a phenomenal writer and has what you need for a successful life.


Name: Kevin A. Muhammad

Research- Author- Educator of: The Power of Modesty

and other books below......

Tell us a little bit about yourself?

I believe the most important facts about me are: 1) I've been in the Nation of Islam for 30 years, under the guidance and leadership of the Honorable Louis Farrakhan; 2) I've been married 26 years; and 3) my wife and children are striving to serve Allah and His Messenger—all thanks to Allah! During the past 15 years, I've been blessed to write more than a dozen books centered on the Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, as it relates to health. I've also been blessed to spearhead several health campaigns to improve the health of our people.

What are you looking to accomplish from The Power of Modesty?

Ultimately, girls and young women, in particular, will learn a great deal about themselves, as it relates to their divine nature and how to preserve and protect that special and awesome "nature." This, alone, is the greatest means of empowerment for any girl or woman. As girls and women embrace this knowledge, we will begin to see them adopt the "culture of righteousness," led by modest behaviors, especially attire. Why will we see this? Through this book, girls and women will be acutely aware of the value of living a dignified and modest life—a divine life. They will also be cognizant of the severe consequences for continuing to participate in their own exploitation, which leads to their physical and mental destruction.

What will readers learn from The Power of Modesty?

This book is comprehensive in addressing the full scope of human activity, as it relates to the origin of our thoughts, the influences that affect our lives, and the behaviors arising from this influence. Here, let me say that only Allah (God) could have arranged this book in the excellent and exquisite way it is arranged. The essence of the book is that it expresses divine knowledge in a way that is easy to understand, yet highly scientific—the goal of which is to explain the details of a female's relationship with nature and with her Creator, who created her nature. The reader will learn and understand the "terrain" in which we live, which is the Satanic world upheld by the exploitation and corruption of girls and women. This is absolutely necessary for girls and women to know.

More importantly, the reader will learn the fundamental knowledge that enables the female to tap into her divine nature, while protecting herself from the evil aims of the satanic people who govern this world. She will learn how Allah (God) is present in her nature. That is where He truly resides. This "divine nature" is activated and supported by proper diet and proper thinking—both of which is attained by adhering to Allah's divine instructions. The reader will learn the science and power of thought, and, in light of this power, why modesty is essential for enabling women to maintain beauty, health, and to live long, joyful and productive lives. These things have always been the aim of the Creator for the female.

I really see how women can gain value from this book. Tell us how can men benefit from reading this wonderful book?

Men will understand the value that this book offers them when they contemplate the words of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad that: "A Nation Can Rise No Higher Than Its Woman." This is a sobering reality. It means that Black people will never rise as an independent and civilized people until the "Black woman" is elevated to her proper place. Simply put, we don't stand a snowball chance in hell unless Black women are given the utmost respect and protection. Unfortunately, Black girls and women are at the bottom of civilization. They are the most exploited of women anywhere on the earth. Our future is bleak, at best, unless this is turned around.

Through this book, The Power of MODESTY, men will be inspired to execute their duties as protectors and elevators of their women. Men, too, will learn about the satanic forces that make them "willing" victims and exploiters of their women—in the name of fun, games, and foolishness. A father, husband, brother, and uncle will learn how to protect the girls and women in their lives. This is how we aid the elevation of our women. They must first be elevated in our minds. This can only happen when we understand the female's divine nature and her irreplaceable value—as the "Second Self" of Allah.

Just imagine—if every man accepts the awesome responsibility to respect, protect and elevate women, then our homes and communities will be transformed into "heaven on earth." This book will help bring that into fruition.

What last thing would you want the world to know about you?

First and foremost, I am a servant of Allah, His Christ and Their Messenger-Messiah. I am blessed to be under the direct guidance of Allah and His Christ; therefore, it is important for the reader to know that this book is the product of Allah's will. It is part of His plan to reform and elevate women. I believe anyone who reads this book will feel the Spirit of Allah all throughout it, attesting to my previous statement.

JayVon Muhammad Teaches Us About- The Birds & The Bees, Teaching our Daughters the TRUTH about Sex, Relationships, and Marriage

I am so excited to finally interview Sister JayVon Muhammad who has wrote two phenomenal books.

Let me introduce you to:

Name: JayVon Muhammad

Writer & Author of:

Baby Mamas, A Midwife's Guide to Ending the Epidemic

The Birds & The Bees, Teaching our Daughters the TRUTH about Sex, Relationships, and Marriage

Tell us a little bit about yourself?

JayVon Muhammad is a married mother of three, born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. She holds licensure as a midwife from the California Medical Board, and certification through the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM). She has more than ten years of experience in women’s healthcare, and is a homebirth advocate.

In 2005, after several years of working in the healthcare field, and learning about the horrible disparities as they relate to healthcare in the Black Community, JayVon founded Urban Midwifery, Inc. Urban Midwifery, Inc. is a non-profit agency dedicated to addressing the disproportionately high infant mortality rates in the Black Community. Today, Urban Midwifery hosts educational workshops and events for undeserved teens and women, and provides free limited prenatal care to uninsured women. Urban Midwifery also collects and distributes groceries, diapers and other necessities to women in need, especially during the holiday season.

In 2008 JayVon accepted a position as a midwife with the Sacramento Birthing Project Clinic, a clinic that serves low-income women. This opportunity allowed her to follow her passion, educating teens, and providing midwifery care to low-income women. This work inspired JayVon to branch out on her own and found SistaGirl Midwifery in 2009.

You wrote two books. What is the name of the books?

1. Baby Mamas, A Midwife's Guide to Ending the Epidemic

2. The Birds & The Bees, Teaching our Daughters the TRUTH about Sex, Relationships, and Marriage

What are you looking to accomplish from these books?

book1: Today, women are becoming pregnant without any knowledge of pregnancy, and/or what it takes to have a healthy pregnancy, and make a healthy baby. Women are entering care ignorant, in poor physical health, in poor social health, and without the proper support.

I wrote Baby Mamas, A Midwife's Guide to Ending the Epidemic, as a tool for my patients/clients. It is a book that they can take home after our first visit, read quickly, and return prepared to discuss...

And it has definitely opened the women up to discussion. They spend the next visit trying to prove to me that "they" are not the women of the book. Ultimately, it opens up for discussion, issues that they would normally avoid.

Over the years I have recognized a pattern for women, young Black Women in particular. Black Women are coming into prenatal care ALONE, without husbands, and rarely with even committed partners. Being alone is complicating our pregnancies, physically and mentally. It is my belief, and professional opinion, that the fact that over 72% of our babies being born out of wedlock to "Baby Mamas" is contributing to the disparity in infant mortality in the Black Community, where our babies die almost three times more than white babies from the time a woman is pregnant until baby reaches one-year old. Of course, there are other factors contributing to the disparity in infant mortality like, smoking, substance abuse, poor nutrition, poverty, etc...

book2: I wrote The Birds & The Bees for mothers. In California, and some other States, there are laws that protects girls 12 and above from having to inform their parents about abortions, or get their parents permission to visit family planning clinics for birth control,pregnancy testing, and abortions. It is criminal, and many mothers don't even know. I wanted to equip mothers with the information that they need to discuss relationships and sex with their daughters themselves. Many times moms express concern about having this conversation, or even ignorance to what should be discussed. The Birds & The Bees introduces mothers to some modern terminology, culture, and suggest a curriculum.

The Birds & The Bees is also written for mothers that have given up, and allowed society to teach their children about sex, verses them teaching abstinence. This became apparent after mother after mother was bringing her daughter into the clinic themselves for birth control, particularly Depo-provera (injection), as early as 13 years-old. I try to reason with, and explain to the mother that when we only address unplanned pregnancy with our daughters, and our desire that they not get pregnant, that is the only message they receive. Then they spend allof their energy avoiding pregnancy instead of avoiding premature sexual relationships that may expose them to pregnancy at the least, and possibly even an uncurable sexually transmitted infection at the most.

What will readers learn from these books?

I think that readers will begin to discuss the importance of proper relationships and marriage before pregnancy. I also think that parents will learn that there is still hope in teaching our girls about abstinence until marriage, and in doing so we are improving the lives of our daughters, and the condition of the community overall.

I think mothers will end the book feeling empowered, and motivated to discuss relationships with their daughters. I also think that mothers will learn some things that will help them with their own health.

I really see how women can value from this book. Tell us how can men benefit from reading these wonderful books?

For men, the book Baby Mamas, A Midwife's Guide to Ending the Epidemic, can also be useful. The information about relationships - the science of mating, applies to both woman and man. Just as women have to go back to basics and learn how to be better women, men have go back and learn how to be better men. That way, we make better couples, better children, and better communities.

The Birds & The Bees, Teaching our Daughters the TRUTH about Sex, Relationships, and Marriage can be very valuable to fathers! Fathers also need to know about the development and obstacles that their daughters are having. They need to learn how to recognize certain behaviors, and understand how girls feel about certain developments, such as her first "period".

Tell us about your business?

I work at a clinic several days weekly, and when not at the clinic I run a "homebirth" practice, SistaGirl Midwifery. At SistaGirl Midwifery we offer homebirth services. We also sell natural and unique products for pregnancy, postpartum, and new mamas/babies.

SistaGirl Midwifery's goal is to bring our pregnant women who are having healthy, low-risk pregnancies, OUT of the hospital, and into the comforts of their home. In the U.S. the Cesarean section rates have skyrocketed, and now 1 out of every 3 births is by Cesarean. This statistic is outrageous! We know that poor women and women of color are more likely to receive an unjustifiable Cesarean section. We are encouraging our women to come out of the hospitals for birth - which is a normal process.

I am also founder and Executive Director of Urban Midwifery, Inc., a non-profit agency dedicated to ending the normalization of the Baby Mama, and educating women about the importance of marriage in pregnancy. Urban Midwifery, Inc. provides free prenatal care to women who do not have insurance, access to our Urban Mama Store which has donated clothing and food, and childbirth education. We also host conferences and workshops that stress the importance of Black Marriage and healthy relationships.

What last thing would you want the world to know about you?

First comes love, then comes marriage, THEN comes the baby in the baby carriage. I am on a CRUSADE to end the normalization of the Baby Mama in the Black Community! I intend to educate all women who cross my path about the importance of healthy marriage in pregnancy. I plan on doing this one woman at a time until all women (and their husbands) are prepared to give birth to a god!

How can readers reach you?

Thank you for everything you continue to do. May God bless you much success.

Praise be to Allah! May Allah also bless you and your family :)
