I’m Here For Pokèmon

The same social media trolls that are hatin’ on ‘Pokèmon Go’ are the same ones gearing up for their Fantasy Football drafts in a few weeks, paying $100+ per league with only a hope to earn a percentage of that money back. Yes, you can play FF without leaving your[…]

Nabisco has zero chill

I somewhat blame parenthood for my newfound fascination with all things Oreo. Pinterest is also to blame. Back in the 80s, we had the chocolate Oreo, the double stuffed Oreo, and the golden Oreo. That’s it. Jump ahead 30 years and Nabisco has now somehow managed to infuse the trendiest[…]

Year of the Female?

When I think about politicians, corporate business structures, or anyone in a significant leadership role, I automatically picture a white man. Why is that?

Here are the cinema block-busters that I’ll be spending my coins on during the next few months: March 25th – Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice – I’m sure seeing two of the most popular superheros ever together, on the big IMAX screen, is enough to give the average male a woody,[…]

Runner’s High

In 2009, two African-American female friends decided that enough was enough when it came to health disparities among women of color. They created “Black Girls RUN!”, an organization to help tackle the growing obesity epidemic in the African-American community. Fact: 80% of African-American women are overweight. That means that 8/10 black women[…]

Enough is Enough

I will be brief. Please Vote in this presidential election. If you do anything with your life in 2016, at least vote. Voice your opinion. Act. Do some research. Watch the news. READ. SOMETHING. Don’t sit around the dinner table on Sundays and pout about you are going to miss[…]

Genital Transplant, Anyone?

I work for Johns Hopkins in the research field, so I’m privy to all sorts of information about new clinical trials to test a new cancer drug, etc. My department is responsible for facilitating the ethical review and approval of research studies before they are implemented in human subjects. God[…]
