An economist and businesswoman who spoke in Greenville on Tuesday said progress has been made in business when it comes to hiring or awarding contracts to minorities, but it’s important to remember the past while looking ahead.
Julianne Malveaux spoke to a crowd of local minority and women business owners, city officials and community members who gathered at the Greenville Convention Center on Tuesday for a conference, one of several Minority Enterprise Development Week events. The week also will include a Thursday evening event for the MWBE Newcomer’s Club and a Friday night City Crawl-Restaurant Edition.
Malveaux, president emerita of Bennett College in Greensboro and an author and political commentator, delivered the keynote address, titled “The Value Proposition,” and discussed the economy, race relations and the importance of minority business.
Issues like racism and hiring bias come into play in the workplace, Malveaux said, and it’s important to remember our past while building our future.
“The challenge that we have is we don’t know our history,” she said. “And if we know our history, we will get why we still have historically black colleges and universities and still need them… will get why we have to celebrate this week.”
Malveaux said minorities saw a breakthrough when Richard Nixon during his presidency signed two orders that created the Minority Business and Development Agency. Malveaux said one of the executive orders expanded the reach of the agency and allowed the possibility of awarding grants to cities and states to augment their minority business efforts.
“Nixon had his challenges, but in terms of economic participation, he got it: that you cannot have a thriving economy unless you make room for everybody,” she said. “Once upon a time we would talk about engaging minority businesses as a moral imperative, but at this moment in time it’s an economic necessity.”
Malveaux said economic growth will stem from small and medium-sized businesses, international engagement and the growing sectors of the population, which she referred to as the “blacks and browns.”
“We can’t afford to sideline anybody when we start talking about growth and development,” Malveaux said. “We want everybody sitting at the table, we want everybody to have an opportunity to play. Unfortunately, all too often what we end up with is what I call the narrow white occasion, and we just do it this way because we’ve been doing it.”
Contracts for businesses should represent the population, Malveaux said. She suggested that if the city is half black, contracts for businesses should be, too.
“The whole notion of racism is not southern; it’s endemic,” she said. “Exclusion is not southern; it’s endemic.”
Malveaux said scalability has to be discussed if the goal is to develop intergenerational wealth and create jobs.
“The question you have to ask bankers is who am I giving loans to and how?” she said. “We don’t have enough minority businesses and so we really have to grow more.”
Looking ahead to the future and how to improve the economy, Malveaux discussed inclusion for race, gender, and language, which she said are becoming increasingly important with globalization. When it comes to young people, Malveaux stressed the importance of education and understanding how businesses work.
Malveaux encouraged people in attendance to be excited about progress but to focus on what else needs to be done to ensure that minority businesses increase and that their role is recognized.





Business is not the only place minorities experience bias and racism, Malveaux said, mentioning Charlotte, where protests continue after a police officer fatally shot Keith Lamont Scott, a 43-year-old black man.

“Your know that Charlotte is not going to get better until white folks get as loud as black folks do about this stuff, until white folks are as outraged as black folks about this stuff,” Malveaux said.

“You must know 160-plus black folks being killed by police officers is wrong,” she said. “You must know we have to talk about race and racism in our society. You must know that we must deal with unconscious bias. Some people are experiencing it on the street, but guess what? Some people are experiencing that bias every day as they attempt to do business, so dot the I’s and cross the T’s of our economic groups to ensure that prosperity continues.”

Baylor Sexual Assault Scandal

Rice University’ Marching Owl Band forms into “IX,”

a reference to Title IX rules governing sexual

discrimination at colleges, while performing

a halftime show mocking  Baylor University for its

recent sexual assault scandal during a football game

on Sept. 16, 2016.

Rice University’ Marching Owl Band forms into “IX,”

a reference to Title IX rules governing sexual

discrimination at colleges, while performing a

halftime show mocking  Baylor University for its

recent sexual assault scandal

during a football game on Sept. 16, 2016.

Editor’s note: This story has been updated with a

statement from Rice University regarding the halftime


Rice University’s marching band used its halftime

performance in a Friday night football game against

Baylor University to mock Baylor’s recent sexual assault scandal.

Video uploaded to social media after the event shows

Rice’s Marching Owl Band forming the Roman

numeral IX, a reference to the Title IX ban on sexual

discrimination, followed by a star and a rendition of the

song “Hit the Road Jack,” in reference to the departure

of university president and chancellor ” Ken Starr ” in

the wake of the scandal.

A representative from Baylor was not immediately

available on Saturday morning for comment on the

halftime performance.

Rice University’s Office of Public Affairs released

a statement on Saturday saying the

” Marching Owl Band “

has a tradition of satirizing Rice’s football opponents

with performances that are not subject to prior review

by the university administration. But the statement

said Rice regretted any offense to the Baylor fans at

the stadium in Houston and that the band did not mean

to make light of the serious ongoing issues of sexual


“Sexual assault is a matter of serious concern on

campuses across the nation, and all of us have an

obligation to address the matter with all the tools at

our disposal,” the statement said. “The MOB sought

to highlight the events at Baylor by satirizing

the actions or inactions of the Baylor administration,

but it is apparent from the comments of many

spectators andBaylor fans that the MOB’s effort

may have went too far.”

The scandal, involving multiple reports of football

players being accused of rape with little or no action

by the university, has rocked Baylor over the past

several months.


A report commissioned by the university found that

Baylor lacked proper procedures to address sexual

assault complaints, arguing that university officials

had “failed to consistently support complainants

through the provision of interim measures, and that

in some cases, the University failed to take action to

identify and eliminate a potential hostile environment,

prevent its recurrence, or address its effects for

individual complainants or the broader campus


Pepper Hamilton, the law firm that conducted the

investigation, also reported there were concerns

among Baylor’s football program as it failed to identify

a sexual violence pattern within football players.

The report also suggests the program’s tone and

culture should be accountable for athlete misconduct.

Starr was first reassigned from school president to law

professor and chancellor in May amid the sexual

assault scandals and the report filed by the

Pepper Hamilton law firm.

In June, he stepped down from the chancellor role,

and in August he announced he was leaving the

faculty,  officially ending his tenure at Baylor.


Rice University has been a financial supporter of

A statement asking Congress to end water fluoridation in the United States has been released by the Fluoride Action Network (FAN). Over 600 professionals, including a Nobel Prize winner, officers in the Union that represents Environmental Protection Agency professionals, and members of the National Research Council panel on fluoride’s toxicology, have signed the statement.

The report urges Congressional members to “recognize that fluoridation is outdated, has serious risks that far outweigh any minor benefits, violates sound medical ethics, and denies freedom of choice.”





It cites eight recent events that call for an urgent end to water fluoridation. Among them:

A 500-page review of fluoride’s toxicology by the National Research Council of the National Academies, published in 2006.
Evidence from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that found 32 percent of U.S. children have dental fluorosis, which is caused by fluoride.
The American Dental Association’s 2006 policy change, which recommends not giving fluoridated water to infants for the first 12 months of life.
A Harvard University study that found a five- to seven-fold increased risk of osteosarcoma (bone cancer) among young men who were exposed to fluoride between the ages of 6 and 8.
The CDC’s recognition that fluoride is beneficial in reducing tooth decay when it’s applied topically, not taken systemically.
The statement calls for members of Congress to sponsor a new Congressional Hearing on Fluoridation that requires those who continue to support water fluoridation to provide scientific basis, under oath, for their continued recommendations.

According to one of the statement’s signers, Dr. Arvid Carlsson, winner of the 2000 Nobel Prize for Medicine, “Fluoridation is against all principles of modern pharmacology. It’s really obsolete.”

Dr. Mercola’s Comments:

This is truly excellent news! Slowly but surely, the truth about fluoride has been leaking out, and now it may finally have the chance to sink in and really prompt some major changes.

If you are new to the site, you’re probably still under the impression that fluoridated water is a good thing, so this news may come as a surprise. In reality, fluoride is a dangerous poison that does not help to protect your teeth when you ingest it via your drinking water. As even the CDC has admitted, fluoride may help your teeth if it’s applied topically, but taking it in systemically does not.

What it DOES do, as this much-needed statement points out, is:

Increase your risk of bone fractures
Decrease your thyroid function
Lower your IQ
Cause arthritic-like conditions and dental fluorosis
Possibly increase your risk of bone cancer
On top of that, the statement reveals that federal agencies have admitted that “the industrial grade waste products used to fluoridate over 90 percent of America’s drinking water supplies (fluorosilicate compounds) have never been subjected to toxicological testing or FDA safety-tested approval for human ingestion.”

The fact that Americans have been drinking fluoridated water for more than 50 years has really been a giant experiment, at the expense of your health.


You can learn the underlying corruption and abuses of power that have allowed fluoride to be shamelessly promoted in the United States in Christopher Bryon’s The Fluoride Deception. The publication of this book is one of the eight recent events that’s referenced in the statement, simply because it reveals so clearly that industrial interests were behind the early promotion of fluoride.

How You Can Avoid Fluoride, and Help to Ban it in Your Water

If all goes well, this statement should make members of Congress take notice, and may prompt new regulations about fluoridated water.

Until then, you can protect yourself from fluoride by using only non-fluoride toothpaste and not receiving fluoride treatments from your dentist. To remove fluoride from your drinking water, you must use a reverse osmosis filter. Be sure that you’re filtering not only the water that you drink, but also the water you use to wash vegetables, make ice cubes, and cook with.



If you’re wondering how to keep your teeth healthy, remember that fluoride was never the answer in the first place. Eating right and avoiding processed foods (along with regular cleanings with your natural dentist) will ensure that your teeth stay healthy naturally.

Finally, if you’d like to voice your opinion about ending water fluoridation, the Fluoride Action Network has an online petition that you can sign to call for a Congressional Hearing.

Remember, every voice makes a difference, so please feel free to forward this message to all of your interested friends and family members.

Together, we have the power to prompt some real changes for the good of your health, and the health of future generations!

Relieve Arthritis with Deer Antler Velvet
by Ryan Carmody
Millions of Americans are affected by this painful and often debilitating disease, and the rates of incidence continue to increase. There are two types of arthritic conditions, rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, the latter being more common. This article will focus on osteoarthritis, but deer antler velvet has also been shown to help those suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.
What causes arthritis and how does deer antler velvet reduce the symptoms and reverse the cause?

Osteoarthritis is a condition where one’s joints deteriorate, causing pain and stiffness. More specifically the cartilage between bones, articular cartilage, which allows your joints to properly articulate or bend, degenerates. A common misconception concerning the cause of arthritis is that of “wear and tear”, but this has since been debunked. Exercise and physical activity actually play a role in maintaining healthy joints, with studies showing reduction in arthritic pain from exercise. There are three major causes of osteoarthritis. A poor diet, lacking in minerals and vitamins and high in processed foods, free radicals and other environmental pollutants, and a sedentary lifestyle. Women are more likely to be affected by arthritis with another factor being loss of minerals during child birth.
Arthritis Relief with Deer Antler VelvetIn order to have healthy joints the articular cartilage must be able to regenerate itself. The articular cartilage is comprised of collagen fibers, proteoglycans, and elastic fibers. These substances form a cartilage matrix, which is surrounded by synovial fluid. Note, there is no blood supply to cartilage, which makes healing more difficult, but also explains why it’s important to exercise and ensure nutrients and waste products are moving in and out. Proteoglycans in the form of chondroitin sulfate and collagen are two substances present in deer antler velvet.
Glucosamine sulfate is also found in deer antler velvet and studies have shown its ability to repair cartilage, with even more success when combined with chondroitin sulfate. One could supplement with either chondroitin sulfate or glucosamine sulfate in isolation, but combining these two powerful cartilage rejuvenators along with a host of other biologically active substances found in deer antler velvet gives you your best chance of alleviating joint pain from arthritis.

Also of note is the insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) present in deer antler velvet, which encourages the absorption of chondroitin sulfate or glucosamine sulfate.

If you go to your doctor for arthritis relief you will likely be prescribed an anti-inflammatory or steroidal drug. While these drugs may reduce arthritic pain, they do not address the root cause, and often come with a host of undesirable side effects. Your best bet at over coming arthritis is providing the body with what it needs to heal itself.

In summary, eating healthy nutrient dense foods, limiting free radical exposure, exercising, and the aid of a superior supplement like deer antler velvet will get you well on your way to regaining healthy joint function. Elasticity and fluidity are characteristics of healthy cartilage, both of which can be achieved through changes in lifestyle and deer antler velvet.

Andrew Weil, MD
There are dietary changes you can make that may help reduce the inflammation that underlies arthritis pain:

* Eat oily fish such as salmon, or try another source of omega-3 fatty acids such as walnuts or freshly ground flax seed daily. You can also take omega-3 supplements (2-3 grams of fish oil a day).
*Regularly use ginger and turmeric. You can work ginger into your diet by drinking ginger or turmeric tea or taking extracts of these herbs in capsule form.
* Eat generous amounts of organically grown vegetables and fruit every day.

The antioxidants they contain may help reduce tissue damage from inflammation.
The following supplements may help, too:

Glucosamine sulfate. Glucosamine sulfate provides joints with the building blocks they need to help repair natural wear on cartilage. Specifically, this supplement provides the raw material needed by the body to manufacture a mucopolysaccharide (called glycosaminoglycan) found in cartilage.
Evening primrose oil. This is a source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) that may help maintain healthy joints by modifying inflammation.

Bone health-related herbs and spices. In addition to ginger and turmeric, mentioned above, holy basil, green tea, rosemary, scutlellaria and huzhang all contain naturally occurring anti-inflammatory compounds that are believed to act as COX-2 inhibitors.
