Sex, lies, and a guinea pig. While this concept may sound outrageous to some, for those who have seen “Fleabag,” Phoebe Waller Bridge’s BBC/Amazon Prime series, it’s not too out of left field. Mixing lovable, albeit unnamed, characters with screwball storylines, the British actress/writer/director now finds herself as one of the most coveted names in the industry. 

One of the most cited statistics, Curtis “Wall Street” Carroll uses when explaining his work with fellow inmates in San Quentin State Prison in San Quentin, California is the fact that 90% of crimes committed are money related, yet only 1% of the programs targeted towards imprisoned and newly released people pertain to finances. Using the merger resources allotted to him in prison libraries and newspapers, Wall Street has been able to transform himself from an illiterate teenager with a criminal past to an expert financial advisor and investor with national recognition from MoneyWise, Market Watch, and CNN, and a financial educator in San Quentin with his spearhead financial literacy program, Project FEEL.

For some, reading Orlando Bloom’s name instantly transports them back to 2002.

With the tension around 2020 elections, several Democratic candidates have come forward to pursue the U.S. presidency.

The best part of first grade, or any grade after that, was when we used to see the teacher wheeling in the tv/vcr on that black cart. Grant it they had no idea how to use, by the way. But, this action alone that let you know that you were in for a fun day, regardless of what movie was going to be played. The Lion King is one that we watched that’s pretty memorable for me. The range of emotions from beginning to end was something I don’t think any of us who grew up in the 90’s will ever forget. One of the best animated movies I’ve ever seen, even as an adult. And in the era of remakes, it was only right for Disney to remake it and modernize it. 

It’s unfortunate that the story of Nathan “Nearest” Green has been long forgotten until now. Who is Nathan “Nearest” Green, you ask? To be honest, I found myself asking the very same question until I discovered him. His life has been overshadowed for generations, but he is a very prominent figure in a rather unexpected line of work: distilling alcohol for the now famous brand Jack Daniel.

When I walked into the Local Green Atlanta restaurant, located in West Atlanta, the first thing I noticed was a large sign that says: “Eat Well, Be Well.” Then my attention went to the wall covered in colorful paper, where customers were encouraged to write down and share their goals. Some of the notes were simple, such as “eat healthier and recycle more,” and others were more serious, like to “always have a servants heart.” Right away the small details set the tone for what this restaurant is all about.
