Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton faced off Monday night in one of the most anticipated debates in U.S. history. The debate was held at Hofstra University on Long Island and moderated by NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt. Throughout the 90-minute, often antagonistic, debate, Clinton and Trump sparred on everything from foreign policy to trade deals to personal stamina. But third-party candidates, including Libertarian Gary Johnson and the Green ...

Your thoughts? One question: why should just African Americans stay home? Should give more time for folks to react to the call. Screw the 26th because of the"debates". Wanna cripple somethin' stay home Black Thursday from work and shopping. Take some of what you would've spent and donate it. Announce it if you like. E.g..,"last year I spent $3700 on black Thursday. This year I donated $1500 I would've spent to Daniel Gray-Kontar's 12, or Arlin J. Wallace's banking idea, or Guide to Kulchur books for prisoners, or 5013c dance group, soup kitchen, startup biz, Ridall garden anything that doesn't feed into capitalism run Amok. Thinkin' out loud... Gondobay Manga??
It is much healthier to go in favor of something as opposed to explicitly against something only. The energy is better and more sustainable and balanced.

The actor suggests that if all black people stay home and cripple the economy, the issue of police brutality will finally get the attention it deserves.

Story

I Breath In I Breath Out
Introduction

Cavana Faithwalker was born in Cleveland, Ohio. Much of his worldview and values have been molded by his Blackness bestowed upon him in a working class Black, urban neighborhood. He blames his packrat tendencies, the economy in his art and poetry on being raised by an Alabama, depression baby momma who was raised on a farm with her nine brothers and sisters. "She is probably the reason I fight consumerism gone amuck and the overly me-ish influence of our society," says Cavana.

 His fascination with mechanical things, physics, his aesthetics, his sense of humor and how things relate to each other comes from construction worker dad and others.

 He has a degree in public art marketing and management from Cleveland State University. His major is composed of Urban Studies, Studio Art and Marketing.

He says his “new best friend” now is Amit Goswami a quantum physicist turned spiritual guru and quantum activist. " I think something is happening worldwide as far as spiritual consciousness.  For me after almost a quarter century of mainstream and somewhat fundamentalist Christian dogma and orthodoxy, that whole thing is giving in to a new interpretation of what the canon says and also what is myth and what is ‘reality.’

 When it comes to orthodoxy and dogma I rather like an adage attributed to Zen Buddhism, ‘when you meet the Buddha in the road, kill the Buddha.’"

Cavana believes in congruency. “The more you can be in sync with your authentic self the healthier you are and the more life you bring to the things you do, yeah congruency.”  He aims at being content in life and enjoying life.  His mantra is breathe in breathe out.  “Through meditating when I play my didgeridoo I may have zeroed in on the one thing that won’t change in my world view, it may be the constancy that anchors me, the lessons in science, those metaphysical concepts beyond the science of plant animal relationships surrounding oxygen are powerful. A natural outcome of this mantra is thinking win-win, big picture, and yin yang.

Perhaps when you gravitate to something or are in accord with something it was meant to be that revelations come through it.  I learned to play the didjeridoo in 30 minutes, ‘circular’ breathing and how to make sounds.  Many play along time without learning ‘circular breathing’ but it just seemed like the thing to do."

 Cavana is a visual and performance artists, he sings and plays didjeridu and is aiming at attaining some level of expertise at throat singing also know as overtone singing. 

Cavana was the Poet Laureate for the City of Cleveland Heights, Ohio from 2011-2013.

"Muhammed Ali got me into poetry with his prose and antics in the 70s," Faithwalker says.  "I would write prose poetry and recite them for fellow students in high school."  He won his first poetry contest while in high school.

Today Cavana puts himself in the activist 'box'. "A lot of folks don't like labels but we are hardwired to label and pre judge.  I read this sign that said activism is the rent for living on this planet, or something like that.  I like that but even more so we are all activists if we become aware and congruent. We naturally care, compassion, and get involved and wear off on those that have been beat up too much to care and get involved - empowerment.  When we get too beat up someone re empowers us.  Romantic view I know and I try to live into it.

I love this theater. It seems to be on hard times. It must be on historic register, opened in 1937 renovated in 99 I think. I was disappointed they covered up a 1940s mural on the bathroom level. I was assured it is only temporary. Great grand layout with winding stars going to 2nd level and down to lavatory level. Great for dates and outings. One can see a movie and step out into a square with 7/10 restaurants including Edwins french cuisine and a coffeehouse. They show a mix of movies and host the Urban Film Festival every year. Unlike places like the Cedar-Lee, concession stand food isn't all that. I hope it can hang in there to better times. Ample ample parking behind the theater and all around the square including the CVS on the northeast quadrant.

You will love with this shop. There is also a store in Florence, AL. The Madison store is perched upon a hill in a strip of stores with ample parking. “What’s the key to a successful business?” “Location, location, location!” The Waddells (owners) must have planned this layout for The Cigar Room. With the The Cigar Room in the center, this strip functions as a huge man-cave. Right next door from CR is, Wish You Were Beer with a great selection, “Our goal at Wish You Were Beer is to take craft beer culture to the next level in North Alabama.” You can order food at “Sidelines Pub & Grub,” or from “Pho 89” vietnamese and not miss a play, at bat, shot of the game or minute of conversation. Ok if you’re reading this from afar, know that, it’s allll about football in these parts. There is also a pool hall… a spa and a tanning salon in the strip, I’m just sayin.’ CR is not the “He Man Woman Hater’s Club” of yesteryear so don’t be surprised to see woman here frequently.. Yes brothers and sisters, it’s all about lovely, curvaceous, supple, good smelling, CIGARS. It’s the first time I’ve seen this gender mix among the Huntsville shops, refreshing. Five percent of all Americans smoke cigars, 8.2% of men and 2.0% of women smoke cigars. There are two front entrances to the store which CR uses to its advantage to carve out an outdoor smoking area between them. Sit down relax take in some sun and your favorite stick. Entering through one door you are greeted by yet another smoking area with a tv on the wall, seats about seven and you’re not even to the smoking room yet.. If someone is sitting there you’re assured a warm hello, of course this is Alabama, so have a seat. You may not know each other when you walk in but walking out is another story. Among the different areas of the store offering cigars is a well maintained well stocked walk in humidor. According to their website if they don’t have what ya want they’ll order it, but did I mention well stocked? Moving from the front of the house retail section next there is a game room with chairs and tables, a pool table and video games like golf and big game hunting and a pinball machine. Raise your hand if you’ve ever even seen a pinball machine. Anyone? Anyone? I think I spied a dart board too. But wait there’s more! In the third section of the establishment are couches, overstuffed chairs, bar tables, ottomans, card tables, a kitchenette, refrigerator and in the rear personal lockers for the heavy hittin regular byob aficionados. Of course what they really keep in there are torches and cutters.. Three of the walls are adorned with 4 flat screen tv’s.. . with remotes. Meeting the fellas to talk sports, ladies still stuck on how to finish that 67 Toyota Century? Just throw your 12 pack or case of champagne in the fridge. I’ve visited several times making sure to visit at different times. It has always been relaxing with consistent friendly knowledgeable service and a rich diversity of smokers, racial diversity, economic diversity, hell, I’m a yankee who took a wrong turn at Cleveland. It is fun watching different groups of regulars greet each other chat in between hanging with their own set. There are currently two shops, one in Madison and one in Florence. In case you missed it this is about the Madison shop. The Cigar Room was born out of a pure love affair with cigars. It is also a family affair love of cigars. Between owner Donald Waddell, his wife and an in-law Waddell, the love, the professionalism, and the expertise are all there to bring you premium cigars and a wonderful experience. In-law Shannon just became a certified retail tobacconist in 2014 and is on her way to Master Tobacconist. The Madison store is a very cool shop. Lastly, I love their advocacy. Find a link to CRA-Cigar Rights of America at their site and a like to their facebook page. Now that’s love.
