What would you do to live forever? Billionaire technology tycoon, Daniel Grayson, is dying from terminal cancer, but he thinks he has invented a way to live beyond the death of his physical body. Daniel invented liquid memory and with the help of his friend, brilliant brain surgeon, Mitchell Grayson , they believe they can duplicate and move the human mind to a new body and brain. There is only one problem, the mind transfer requires a healthy living body with a viable brain and the only way to secure those is to take them from someone else. Men play God when they decide whose life should end as they know it so that they and their wives, Amy and Shelia, can continue to live beyond the grave. Even everlasting life is not enough as petty human failings of lust, greed and ambition cause them to turn on each other. Does anyone survive when men that don’t have to die decide that some of them have become impediments to reaching larger goals that are at best, reprehensible in nature?

The United States of America is awash in guns with over 270,000,000 in the hands of private individuals. Gun violence and deaths happen at an alarming pace every day and recently, stunning acts of mass shootings have staggered the public’s sensibilities. The final straw may have been the killing of 27 people, including 20 six and seven year old students when Adam Lanza attacked Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut armed with a semiautomatic assault style rifle in December, 2012. Public outrage has led to a renewed effort to curb gun violence and part of that solution may include restrictions on certain types of guns and the amount of ammunition they can hold. Social and political forces have both drawn lines in the sand with the 2nd amendment of the Constitution and its interpretation as the grand issue. Forces of profit, politics and outrage collide as some have almost created a gun god and would do anything to protect it. Carnage Control- Surviving The Gun God separates hysteria from facts and looks into sensible solutions as a huge new battle over gun control law heats up in the United States as the President has introduced new measures to curb gun violence.

President Barack Obama won a decisive victory in the 2012 Presidential election over his challenger Mitt Romney. The voting public spoke loudly on the direction they wanted the United States to proceed, but there seems to a political revolt taking place at the state government level. Many Republican governors and other GOP politicians decided that they would go in a different direction than the national electorate and started a political uncivil war to oppose implementing as many Obama initiatives as possible at the state level. The day after President Obama defeated Mitt Romney in the election for President of the United States, an online petition to succeed from the United States arrived at the White House from the state of Louisiana and shortly thereafter succession petitions arrived from all fifty states. While states succeeding from the union are highly unlikely, it does underscores the divide we have in the country even after a decisive election victory by President Barack Obama.

OBAMA GUILTY of BEING PRESIDENT WHILE BLACK examines how the shadows of oppressive Jim Crow laws played a role in the hate spewed towards the 44th President of the United States. The role of race and gender was front and center during the presidential campaign. How a woman was used as a human shield by the Republicans is also clearly illustrated. Barack Obama received a mandate in the general election. A few months later, it was a curious sight to witness people gathered around town hall meeting sites bearing signs depicting the President as Hitler, socialist or a tyrant. Some even carried guns and a pastor prayed that Obama would die. A Republican Congressman even called President Obama a liar on national television during his health-care speech to a joint session of Congress. There was something much deeper at play with President Obama and it centered on his race. Find out how questions about the President's birth, religion, economic policies and patriotism were all smoke screens for feelings as old as the United States itself.



The United States experienced the emergence of an economic crisis in the last quarter of 2008 that was the worst since the Great Depression. It quickly became evident that the cause of this financial meltdown was a perfect storm of multiple factors including irresponsibility, greed and lax oversight. Some hardworking citizens found themselves living in foreclosure riddled neighborhoods and tent cities that the author has labeled - TARP Towns - after the Troubled Assets Relief Program approved by Congress in October of 2008. ESSENCE bestselling author D T Pollard expresses a unique view on the economic crisis that exploded onto the scene in 2008 and describes how that financial downturn may save the United States of America from itself.

…she was called the rooftop diva by the man that saved her, but she never knew his name. She must have passed out because the next time her eyes opened she was surrounded by a throng of people at an aid station. A kind lady gave her a cold bottle of water and then reality started to settle in that all she owned was clinging to her in the form of the clothing she wore.

“Has anyone seen my grandmother Martha Devareaux?” she inquired and all that met her was a blank stare and a shake of the head for no.

Deep down inside her mind, she knew that her grandmother was floating in the water that swamped their house. It came in so quickly. By the time Monique realized what was happening it was up to her neck. She called for her grandmother, but at eighty years old and wheelchair bound, there was little chance that she survived.
