Jamaal is a graduate of New Rochelle High School and attended Northeastern University majoring in Criminal Justice. This poet’s lyrical style is like no other.

Beverly Johnson (born October 13, 1952) Supermodel, actress, and businesswoman Born into a middle-class family in Buffalo, New York, Johnson was a champion swimmer in her youth and aspired to be a lawyer. She was studying Criminal Justice at Northeastern University when she tried her hand at modeling. She quickly landed an assignment with Glamour and began working steadily. Johnson would go on to appear on more than 500 magazine covers, including her groundbreaking Vogue cover in August 1974. Johnson's appearance on the cover changed the beauty ideal in fashion, and by 1975, every major American fashion designer began using African American models. Johnson's success in the 1970s, however, transcended race. She signed with the Ford agency, and was one of the highest-paid models in the industry making about $100 per hour for advertising work and $125 per hour for editorial modeling. Johnson saw herself as more than just a black model. She told Ted Morgan in the New York Times Magazine, "I've been in the bus ...

FACTS ABOUT ROMNEY AS GOV OF MASSACHUSETTS 1. Ranked 47th in job growth: Despite Romney’s professed expertise in creating jobs, Massachusetts ranked 47th in job growth during his time as governor. The state’s total job growth was just 0.9 percent, well behind other high-wage, high-skill economies in New York (2.7), California (4.7), and North Carolina (7.6). The national average, meanwhile, was better than 5 percent. 2. Suffered the second-largest labor force decline in the nation: Only Louisiana, which was ravaged by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, saw a bigger decline in its labor force than Massachusetts during Romney’s tenure as governor. The US Census Bureau estimated that between July 2002 and July 2006, 222,000 more residents left Massachusetts for other states than came to it. That decline largely explains the state’s decreasing unemployment rate (from 5.6 to 4.7 percent) while Romney was in office, according to Northeastern University economics professor Andrew Sum. At the same time, the natio ...
Throughout Latino/Hispanic Heritage Month, I have been spotlighting Latino figures of influence to myself and others. It's a personal quest to show appreciation to those who have impacted me in a personal and prideful way. This morning, I write about Samuel Betances and Nilda Pauley Ruiz. I first became aware of Mr. Betances more than 10 years ago as he made a presentation at the National Conference of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America in New York. Once I realized that he was Chicago based, I made every effort to attend his Diversity trainings and breakout sessions with the Boys and Girls Club Movement, and with the Humboldt Park community. He is still a professor at Northeastern University and continues his great Diversity and culture based trainings and presentations. Google him. While you're at it, Google Mrs. Ruiz and her Lasting Impressions Dance Troupe. More than a dance group, the Lasting Impressions have spent more than 20 years educating and entertaining the masses on the various Latino culture ...
Abuse of Animals Leads to Abuse of Humans This is a common notion among the world of psychologists. According to a 1997 study by Northeastern University and the Massachusetts SPCA, a person who abuses or kills animals is five times more ...likely to commit violence against people. Serial killers who abused or killed animals include Boston strangler Albert Desalvo, “Son of Sam” David Berkowitz and Carroll Edward Cole. Another example is the "Ice Man" Richard Kuklinski, a mafia hit man who admitted to over 100 killings. A number of counties in the state of New York including Suffolk, Rockland and Albany, have created online registries for convicted animal abusers to create public shame for these criminals in hopes that it will prevent them from doing it again. However, according to Allison Gianotto, president Pet-Abuse.com, without national standards, communities will create a patchwork of laws, which will give animal abusers the ability to move across jurisdictions to buy or adopt animals, foiling loca ...
