Karen: "What's happiness? Is there a definition?"
HJH: Happiness is great when it happens but it's a lot of pressure. There's pressure to feel differently. I mostly like to think of peace of mind as being something to strive for.
Special Guest: Jacquette Timmons, Financial Behaviorist
Regardless of where you fall on the income or economic spectrum, very broadly,
there are 4 things that you can do with your money. Earn it. Save it. Invest it. Spend it.
Her job is to look at people's behavior with money, their choices, and their motivations behind those behaviors and choices. She helps people unpack that and help them to understand that you don't manage money. You manage your choices around money.

Karen: "What is Fentanyl?"
Dr. Davis: Fentanyl is a derivative of morphine. It's in the opioid class.
The difference between Fentanyl and other medications, is that it's a synthetic drug. It's made in the lab. Whereas, Percocet and Oxycodone (Oxycontin) come from the poppy seed. They're grown in the fields. Fentanyl is made in the lab and is 50 to 100 times stronger than morphine. One Fentanyl does not equal one morphine.

Author Jemar Tisby reveals the obvious—and the far more subtle—ways the American church has compromised what the Bible teaches about human dignity and equality. (source:Amazon)

("The anger of the oppressed is not a sign of sickness.
It is a recognition of the wrong thing that you are doing to me is wrong and it must stop." ~ unknown)
It is not a sign that says that I am irrational. It doesn't mean that I am hysterical. It means that I am a rational thinking person and by any standards of any rational thinking person, the wrong thing you are doing is a violation of my humanity and it must now stop.
So, when we see the angry black woman, or when we see angry women, we have to ask ourselves, are they having a rational reaction to oppression. Because if they are, then their anger should be the predicted anticipated response to my embracing of a power dynamic that benefits me at their expense.
