Learn Your Numbers During Stroke Awareness Month
5/17/2019 1:28:47 PM

By Roger Caldwell   May is National Stroke Awareness Month, and it is very significant to me, because I am a stroke survivor. As a stroke survivor, I consider myself to be a miracle. One of my goals in life is to educate Americans (particularly Black men), that 80% of strokes can be prevented with knowledge and education.

5/17/2019 1:25:56 PM

By Bill Fletcher, Jr.   When I looked at my email in-box this afternoon, I encountered one of those messages that I dread: yet another person I know has been institutionalized as a result of Alzheimer’s. The sadness conveyed by this person’s partner was clear in their words. They had been together for decades. I could feel the loss. By coincidence, around the same time that I read this email I found myself looking at commentaries regarding Trump’s budget proposals. Drastic cuts in everything except for the military. Though this may, at first glance,...

By Robert Romano   Less than a month after cancelling its planned initial public offering (IPO) on Nasdaq, in early March Virgin Trains USA LLC withdrew its application for a $3.7 billion Railroad Rehabilitation & Improvement Financing (RRIF) loan to build a higher-speed train from Orlando to Miami. The latest setback for the train, formerly Brightline, now leaves the project in some doubt after the company reportedly posted a $117 million loss on $10 million of revenues in 2018 and projects losses between $15 million to $36 million in 2019.
