1. ==> Could Hillary Lose the Black Vote?

The Democratic nominating contest is turning out to be
one hell of a fight between self-described Democratic
Socialist Bernie Sanders and the vaunted Hillary
Clinton. Sanders is leading in New Hampshire and
surging in Iowa—however, South Carolina and the SEC
Primaries are being taunted as the “Firewall” for the
Clinton campaign due to her prohibitive lead with black
voters. Michael McCray says Hillary shouldn’t take the
black vote for granted…again.  “If Hillary for America
does not invest the time, staffing, and financial
resources to actually get out the black vote, many
African-Americans will eventually turn to Bernie
Sanders or simply stay home.” McCray says, “Even though
data guru Nate Silver gives Hillary Clinton more than a
70% chance to win in Iowa, he’s wrong!” He’ll explain
why that is, and how Sanders may surprise many
political observers. Michael McCray, Esq. CPA
(inactive) is a veteran of many Democrat / Clinton
campaigns and the author of “Race, Power & Politics” a
primer on ACORN and grassroots community organizing,
which chronicles the historic 2008 Democratic Primary
Contest from an African-American perspective. Contact

2. ==> Iraqi-American: Trump Got One Thing Right

Presidential candidate Donald Trump has said the Middle
East would be better off today if Iraq’s dictator, the
late Saddam Hussein, and Libya’s dictator, Muammar
Gaddafi, were still in power. Iraqi-born writer and
journalist Weam Namou, agrees with Trump’s assessment
but says he did not fully explain the reasons why the
region would have been better off. Namou was born in
Bagdad and has lived in the U.S. since she was 10. She
says, “We did not have a single suicide bomber until
2003. Saddam knew where the extremists were coming from
and Gaddafi knew where they were coming from. We
(Americans) should be able to detect when people come
from certain regions where terrorists are being
created. We deny this because they are coming from our
allies. We wasted over 20 years on wars with the wrong
country.”  A member of Iraq’s Christian minority, Namou
points out it is U.S. allies Qatar, Turkey and Saudi
Arabia that are financing, outfitting and sheltering
ISIS and will continue to do so until the U.S.
confronts them about it. Weam Namou is the author of
several books including “Witnessing a Genocide.”

3. ==> Why Donald Trump is Leading Polls

Donald Trump is loud, offensive and he’s leading all
other Republican presidential contenders in the latest
polls. Why? Linda Zander says, “Americans are sick and
tired of politicians who posture at being politically
correct just to get votes and once in office their
behavior is counter to their pre-election talk. They
don’t walk their talk. Americans want the truth and
have given up on ever getting it from politicians.” She
adds, “Donald Trump provides a refreshing change: A
politician who isn’t afraid to speak his Truth and what
you see is what you get. Like him or not, he walks his
talk.” Zander, aka The Ambassador of Truth, is a self-
made multimillionaire, success coach and founder of the
Carry the Torch for Truth Campaign. Her upcoming book
is “Super Sized Success: 9-Steps to Maximum Riches in
Minimum Time.” Contact her at (310) 317-0501;

4. ==> Super Bowl Betting – Fun or Addiction?

More people bet on the Super Bowl than any event in
American sports. According to SBNation.com, the total
amount of money on the line worldwide is counted not in
millions, but billions. In Las Vegas, 2014’s game
produced a record $119 million. And with the new recent
proliferation of online betting sites like DraftKings
and FanDuel, there are even more opportunities to put
your money on the line. While most people join a
football pool at the office or play fantasy football
with friends as a fun distraction, there are many for
whom the gambling becomes an addiction. Life coach and
addiction specialist Thomas Gagliano will explain the
signs that your Super Bowl gambling may be teetering on
addiction. Gagliano returned to school to receive an
MSW at age 51. He’s a life coach and the author of
several books including his latest, “Don’t Put Your
Crap in Your Kid’s Diaper.” Contact him at (732)

5. ==> Super Bowl Lessons for the Office

What gets a team to the Super Bowl? Some might say it’s
talent, hard work and good coaching. Stuart Blyth says
it’s the same thing in the corporate world.
“Unquestionably, the best people managers are the
coaches of professional sports teams. They know
everything there is to know about each individual team
member, and the stakes are high. Mistakes could cost
hundreds of millions of dollars.” Blyth, an athlete and
sports fanatic, says the most successful coaches—and
managers—know how to get the very best from each team
member.  He’ll explain why the management skills
prevalent in pro sports are the missing link in the
corporate structure, and how watching football can make
you more successful at work!  Blyth is a British
management training consultant and the author of
“Football Field to Boardroom: The Playbook for Creating
World-Class Business Teams.” Contact him at +44 7788

6. ==> Prevent a Super Bowl Sick Day

It has been estimated that one million Americans call
in sick the day after the Super Bowl with the so-called
‘Super Bowl Flu.’ Dr. Winifred Bragg says sure, some
fans may over-indulge during the game, but others will
wake up with back pain after the game, even though they
weren’t playing. Dr. Bragg says the game and the long
half-time show mean couch potatoes are sitting (and
probably eating and drinking) for hours on end, which
can lead to back pain the next day. Invite the medical
director of the Spine and Orthopedic Pain Center to
share easy tips to avoid the day-after pain like
standing during the commercials, watching the game on a
stability ball instead of the couch, and keeping snacks
in another room so you need to get up and move to
refill your plate! Winifred Bragg, M.D., is board
certified both in physical medicine and rehabilitation
and pain medicine. She has appeared on numerous TV
programs on ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX and has been quoted
in many publications including Redbook, Women’s World
and Self Magazine. Contact her at (757) 961-7498;

“They would have you believe they were born that way,
but the truth is they have all been in and out of the
cosmetic doctor’s office preparing for months for this
one day!” Dr. O’Malley is medical director and owner of
Sonas Med Spa in Madison, CT. which specializes in non-

what it’s cracked up to be!” Leslie will run down the

our inner critics. She’ll share a quick No-Yes

jobs to the economy this year? Or that over the past
five years they have added 20 percent more jobs to the
economy than businesses in general? Get the facts about
