It took an old man to touch my young breast toDo Not Know wake me up. I did not hear him come up to me as I sat in a plastic waiting chair because my Walkman blasted “Keep on Moving” from my Soul II Soul CD. I was in concourse E of Miami’s airport, waiting for my flight to Barbados. I was coming from Montreal in the February winter wonderland and did not know how to dress. I wore a beige cotton knit ensemble with my black winter jacket curled over my arm. I was also wearing the burgundy slightly padded bra I got for Christmas from my sister. The old man had touched more foam than flesh.

Wife Abuses: Past, Present, and Future

Any crime that happens in the home is easy to conceal from the outside world. Wife abuse is a dilemma surveyed in conservative numbers. It a more common crime in the home that society is willing to admit. But, what is wife abuse? Why does wife abuse exist? Will wife abuse exist in the future? What would it take to stop wife abuse? The answers to the above questions will be explored with a focus on a prediction of wife abuse’s future. The prediction is that there will be an increase in reported cases in 2001.

Sarah - October 19, 2009

Sarah’s hair was too long and straight, that hair that came right out of a commercial prevented her from earning a living as a tax collector. She worked in her office as a receptionist, watching the men and women in three-piece suits walk by her desk and only ask if there had been a phone call. Sometimes, when they weren’t looking she would call her friends and they would pick up her spirits.

IntroductionDigital Journals and Numerology

This book is meant to emphasize how powerful keeping a journal can be with the aid of numerology. I started writing one at the age of seven and keeping a journal has been a constant for me – more than some friends, some jobs, and some family members. I used to get a thrill selecting my journals to write in. Now I have decided to try something new by using the computer that I already spend so much time on and money on to show how powerful keeping any journal…even a digital journal can be. Using the principles of numerology can also help in chronicling your life.

Rachel Muenz - Russia - October 16, 2009

By Rachel Muenz

For some dumb reason, I thought Russia had been hit much harder than Canada in the global recession. On Oct. 13, I happened to be reading the Moscow Times and almost all the front page news was about the recession. Canadian papers, in contrast, haven’t had much about the recession on their front pages in a while.

Hair - October 15, 2009

My first hobby was playing hairdresser to my Barbie dolls. I had my childhood in the 70s and 80s but I was not much different from Black children in the 40s who chose White dolls over Black dolls in a landmark study that lead to the desegregation of American schools. It was not that I liked chocolate skin over the cream of white colour; it really came down to the hair. I wanted straight, long, blonde, brunette or red hair, hair that blew in the wind and that I could toss over my shoulder. And when I could not wish it on my head, I used a towel instead.

Brikena Ribaj Does a Music Review

Brikena Ribaj - Review - October 7, 2009

By Brikena Ribaj

I rightly talk about music a lot as it plays a significant part in my quotidianity. Most summers, thanks mostly to my intimate associations and friendships with those in the arts, I tend to spend a good measure of time learning about new music. Often I am asked how I learn about new music and just as often I answer quoting my musician friends as well as the publications I make it a point to read on a daily basis. Some daily staples include the Rolling Stone magazine, Spin, Black Book magazine, as well as iTunes around midnight on Monday/Tuesday. Much like all else, music takes time and discipline and its student needs to be willing to do the right amount of homework for it. And some music deserves more homework time than others.

It’s a common story: An author gets published at a very young age. For a few weeks, she is the centre of media attention, people rave about her talent, her book may sell well, but then she vanishes from the literary world, never to be heard of again.
