Bio

I am the writer of 'All That Glitters Is Not Gold' [ISBN: 978-0-8059-7357-0] printed by Dorrance Publishing Co. All That Glitters Is Not Gold explores the significance of romance and sexuality in modern life through the journey of Te'kare Hulford, a beautiful, successful, and very unhappy young journalist. Set Amid the natural beauty of the Caribbean island of Antigua, this creative novel details Te'kare struggles with her own weaknesses and the question of what she wants in life. Despite numerous lessons, Te'has a difficult time learning to balance her dreams with the truth of the adage that all that glitters is not gold. Her naivete leaves her susceptible to the wiles of a cunning and malicious scheme that threatens her very future as well as that of her longtime boyfriend, D'mitri. www.facebook.com/glitters.gold; www.dorrancebookstore.com/allthglisnot.html

My TED story

i'm all about making a difference in this world of ours.i know sweet words bring joy; a listening ear belonging; a gentle touch human strength;and some degree of care and love brings peace to humanity. So before treating another badly for what ever reason, always remember to look into the beauty of the earth and see the changing seasons which are much like the human soul.

how one should know about himself??
for me thats simply, i tell one what i want them to know, since no matter how much you would try you would never know as well as you would know yourself. Likewise, i think its only fair to one self to not allow anyone person to know every aspect of themselve. More so, stranger your name and you general interests in more than enough

Do you think more money should be spent to explore space or should it be more spent helping people who are struggling on earth? Why?
i think that moneys should be geared towardsprotecting earth from us. All should be educated on ways to stop and preserve the earth from further deteriotation for the future genertion. Industries and companies should spend on on the type of products and packaging they're placed in, in terms of considering consumers health at long and if they fit into the go green society.

Why kids lose curiosity in the process of growing up?
Firstly, all the children, I've known have a single dream in common and that its adulthood. Thus, one doesnt lose interest of growing, as a fact they wished it would happen the day they were born. Likewise, the struggles that children are faced with today which cause them to be viewed and behaviour negatively, is what might make it appear that youth have lost the interest in growing up. Children fear for their lives, they have no one to truth, love have gone out the door centuries ago, they are seen as less than human to many, they have no rights, they are just aliens within this flesh.

How can we empower kids to reshape the education system? *A TEDActive Education Project Question*
All children should be enroll in schools by the lastest 2 years old, and taught the basics. Then by age 4, a child should already be assess so that , their learing patterns and, their likes and dislike known, as such children would be taught what they have an interest in and not what they care nothing about. With such an approach a child should be able to complete high schoool education by 13 and college by 17. also a feild like maths need a total revamp, since more of the things drills upon a person would never see them again in their life time, thus if a student as mastered basic maths that could be enought. Looking beyond education, persons would know ve the opportunity to be more productive and increase the GDP of their countries.

Shall we end racism and discrimination for real.
people out the USA, canada and europe should refused to be called third world and or developing nations, when in fact we're not , or i should say its the reverse. take, self-elcet world super-power USA they make nothing, those things that have on made in USA was made some where else. more often than not, the citizens in these so-called third world countries and the are the ones that were explicted to make these products. they were payed little and nothing, future their countries fail to progress while the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer. Just like all the talk about the new termology 'Globalisation' : globalisation begain since 1515 in the West African and the Caribbean, it was the sweat and back-breaking labour that these nationscan pass their place calling the rest of the world: third world and developing; wen in fact its now they're developing and still on the backs of other races. The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade have been abloished over 175 yrs get, nothing has change. Racism seems to occure in all facets on 21st century life, its a plague that minority groups use to control the majority. thus, i am calling for a revolution against the term: third-world or developing nations; we must stand up and be counted. there isnt athing that is in those so-called first-world countries that are in other countries: vagrancy is every where. mankind should be made to realised that we all breath air, eat and drink and them we died which definitely makes every man in spite of race, creed, nationaity and social status EQUAL and should be treated as such.

Is this our last century?
i dont think this is our last century as a matter of fact when dont know when the last hour would be. I dont see how the advancement in technology have anything to with human problems. I think the problem lies with world leader's and the more and more person that are running after power and wealth. for exmaple, the debate is always on about te age of consent and teenager pregnancy, leaders and groups make this seems like a just erupted plague, when its not a plague at all. when like prostution which is referred to as the oldest profession in the world and not farming, as been around as long as mankind. just a few decades ago when young women in europe hadnt found themslves a husband by age 18 they were labelled as old maid, now they want to carry the age of consent to 21. yet, a person could vote, drive, be out of high school, drink alcohol all before the age of 21. them there is the issue of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade no one want to own that as the greatset ill againist humanity, but super-powersbelieve oil is of a greater value than human life.

tv and violence in society, is tv the cause or the result?
whether its Tv or music, none of it has any impact on violence. it has all to do with present human nature, and values. just like i keep telling peopel that their are no such thing as peer-pressure, its all human ego. overall the world is witnessing the lackof love, where people would do anything to satisfy this longing love the basic fabric of human comfort. however, as parents we must show our children love and, mostly teach them to love them self so they could love mankind. for me Tv and music is nothing but entertainment, to laugh and cry and move on until the other piece is viewed or listened.
