Don’t Be Shy, Make The First Move

Increase your chances by initiating contact. Now, girl.. please do not misconstrue what I  am saying. I am not saying ask the man to marry you on the second date, I am simply saying it is OK to send a text or initiate a phone call, especially when you are dealing with a shy man. Believe me sis, you can have your pick, if you are willing to make the first move. Go for what you know!

Something In Common

I think that if there is a mutual meeting ground such as enjoying the same activities are ideal. Try to build a connection based upon your likes. Couples that have common core areas in life are pretty successful. If you both love football (even if it is for opposing teams) go tailgating together, If you two like wine, go to a vineyard and make a day of it. Cheers!

Meet His “People”

A very good indicator of how someone”gets down”  is by observing them in their natural habitat. See how he interacts with his friends and family. Believe me, this will give you a clue of who he is. People pretend well, bayyybeee keep your eyes open. A few of these interactions will hopefully “spill the beans” on who you are dealing with.

Leave A Little To The Imagination

We live in a world of social media and we are glued to our smart phones. “Likes” on social media do not define you. Yassss Sis! You go to the gym 5 times a week, your body is tight and you want to show it off. There is a time and a place a social media isn’t it especially when you want to be taken seriously by a potential suitor. They make take a few innocent thong pics the wrong way and may addresses you in a oversexed manner. Like I said you are the cat’s meow, but over exposure may not get you taken seriously. Save it for the boudoir boo.

Let The First Date Be Stress Free

The first date can be as simple as going to a coffee house, having a small bite to eat. What should matter is that you are getting to know him, consider it a first interview… but casual. You can meet in a mutual location, no strings attached. He should not have to worry about breaking the bank on date number 1…. that is what date #2 is for, just kidding. Just keep it light, see if he has eye contact, see how he presents himself. This is the time where you can “peep game” and literally walk away without any reservations if he is not your “cup of tea’ Put your best foot forward, don’t give him too much personal information and play it cool. Good Luck Ladies!

NYC: Dad Of Beaten Twins Jumps To His Death

Death, especially murder is horrible, especially when it involves children. NYPD was look for  Mohammad Reza Torabi in regards to the heartless, savage beating of his 1-year-old twins jumped . Instead of facing the music, he decided to take the cowards way out.  Mohammad Reza Torabi leaped to his death Saturday from the top the Renaissance New York Hotel 57 on E. 57th St. around 1:30 p.m., crashing onto a third-floor landing, sources said. His death came three days after cops arrived at his wife’s Queens home to find their daughter Elaina mortally injured and her tiny sibling Kian fighting for his life with fractured ribs, a broken tibia and internal bleeding.

Mohammad Reza Torabi was seperated from his wife after allegations of domestic violence and a restraining order issued earlier this year. Three years ago in Texas, he pleaded guilty to choking his spouse Tina, according to court documents.

Sources indicated no suicide note left was found on Torabi, and it was unclear if he left any sort of message before taking his own life. He jumped before cops were able to track him down to discuss the death of his daughter and the cruel attack on his helpless son.

Sources say Torabi had introduced his wife Tina to drug use, sending her life into a tailpspin. The two battered babies were born in August 2017 with opioids in their systems — and the kids were taken away from their mother for the first six months of their lives.

Tina Torabi, 30, was charged with assault and is being held without bail held for beating their still-hospitalized son within an inch of his life in the basement apartment that she shared with her five kids. The mom may be charged with little Elaina’s death once the city Medical Examiner concludes its autopsy.

Torabi’s three other kids — ages 2, 4 and 5 years old — showed signs of malnourishment when found by first responders.

Tina Torabi made a frantic call to 911 on Wednesday night when Elaina wouldn’t wake up at their Auburndale home, and was quickly grabbed by cops for questioning.

A source with knowledge of the case said that the surviving children claimed they spent time with their father — unsupervised — in recent months, but it was not immediately clear exactly when this happened.

Prayers go out to the children

Ruffins’ bail was set at $75,000, and she was released on Sept. 30.

Tre’Davious has shown and proven that he is the man with the plan. He is one the Bills’ top players, especially on the defensive side of the ball. In his rookie season last year, He recorded 69 total tackles, 18 passes defensed, four interceptions, and one forced fumble through 16 games.

Hopefully all of this can be sorted out and does not affect the NFL players season.

How To Get The Raise You Deserve

QL-Team-Members

Asking your employer may cause you undue stress. It can be as fun as an impending root canal or finally cleaning out your garage after a year of putting it off, but it has to be done.

black-professionals-work-place

Compensation in the U.S.  is on the rise according to the Bureau of Labor statistics. There is money out there for the taking, go ahead and get your cut!

In order to speak up for what you want, you must muster up the confidence to speak to your boss.

How Often Should You Expect a Raise?

Most corporations grant raises once a year, dependent on the economy’s climate and the need and demand for employees in your particular industry.   (For instance, highly competitive fields like finance and tech are particularly raise-friendly.)

raise

Timing Is Everything

The right rime is crucial,  it can determine whether or not you’re rewarded.

Take into consideration a few things: When are raises are generally granted at your company.? Is it at the end of the year? On the anniversary of your start date?

Check the employee handbook, talk to your colleagues (never discuss your salary with your colleagues) or just straight up ask management.

 

Get What You Want

Being that you know your manager, you know how he/she would like to be approached. Do not beat around the bush, be straight forward. Send a meeting invite with a clear objective. Management hate to have their time wasted. Go into the meeting prepared and highlight key points. Highlight your skills, accomplishments and contributions to the team. Do not be afraid to toot your own horn, you probably do a lot that your boss has no clue about. Give concise bullet points of exceeding departmental expectations.

Good Luck!

Swizz, Alicia & Mashonda Find Peace In A Blended Family

ak1.jpg

Well ladies, could you be part of a “blended family”? This concept is not new and this type of situation has been going on forever, would you be down for this?

The blended family has been brought to the forefront by Alicia Keys, her husband Swizz Beatz  and his ex wife Mashonda. The trio opened up about their relationship during an interview.

akc2ak3

Alicia 37, and Swizz got married back in 2010. Their union produced  two children Eygypt 7, and Genesis 3 years of age.

Swizz also has other children previously to his relationship with Alicia with 3 different women, Prince, 17, with Nicole Pierce; Kasseem Dean Jr., 11, with his ex-wife Mashonda Tifrere, 40; and Nicole, 10, with Jahna Sebastian. Hmmm , Swizz ain’t playing around y’all… Be fruitful and multiply!

Swizz’;s ex wife Mashonda has written a book called “Blend” that documents her, Alicia’s, and Swizz’s path to finding balance together as ‘one big beautiful family.

ak.jpg

‘We love each other. I mean, we hang out with each other. We go to dinner together,’ Alicia said.

She also added : ‘We’re doing Thanksgiving, we’re doing the holidays. It is a beautiful partnership. And that is really, really special. I’m very, very proud of that. It’s a real thing and it’s possible.’

Things have not always been peaches and cream for the trio.  Swizz and Mashonda got married back in 2004 and was divorced in 2010. The proceedings were finalized not long before Swizz married Alicia that same year. People speculated the Alicia was “the other woman” People definitely judged and and had a mouthful to say about Alicia.

Mashonda said that the break up affected their son Kasseem Jr.

‘He was, you know, acting out in his own little way,’ Mashonda said. ‘He had some issues in school… He wanted to know why I couldn’t go see him at his dad’s, and why can’t his dad come over and see his bedroom at our house.’

For Mashonda, that was a sign she and Swizz needed to ‘do better’ and build a better relationship together, so that their son wouldn’t be put in a difficult situation.

With her book, which includes a foreword by Alicia and a chapter by Swizz, Mashonda wanted to give an honest account of how the trio had to work together to form a successful partnership.

‘[People] see us here now, loving each other, co-existing and getting along, but there’s a whole middle that they didn’t see,’ she said.

How wonderful! Hopefully other blended family’s can follow your lead. Communication is key !

Is Rapper Tupac Shakur Allegedly Alive Living In Malaysia?

tp3

I know we have heard this question over and over for the past 20 plus years.. “Is Tupac alive?” .. Well is he? Can it be true?

tp4.jpg

As per Suge Knight’s son, Tupac Shakur is still alive. The son of former music mogul Suge Knight went to Instagram with a bunch of posts raising the idea that the fatal  Las Vegas shooting  of Tupac on September 7, 1996 was a fake, and that the beloved  rapper is alive and kicking in Malaysia.

He posted pics with artists such as 50 Cent and Beyoncé who are in pictures with Tupac, Are these photos real? You be the judge.

tp2

Suge Jr. posted a quote that read, ‘Tupac is alive,’ followed by an exchange of texts in which someone wrote to him, ‘You said [too] much. Time for you to go.’  Baby Suge Knight also added pics of a man that looked like an older Pac.  Suge J. Knight made  references to the Illuminati with the alleged cover-up, he also asserted that he was not under the influence of drugs .

He stated : ‘Beware of fake accounts. Their job is to distract you. The Illuminati are all about power. This is why you see powerful names getting locked up.’ ‘Don’t be fooled. We can do it. They will say I’m on drugs and etc. I’m not.’

Well. if nothing else, this is a great conversation starter. Is Pac Alive?
