you’ve ever looked at a job listing and thought, “I’d be perfect for this

the qualifications for a job, is there any flexibility? That depends on the
employer, but in most cases, the answer is yes. Certainly, it helps to

Healthy Lifestyle Tip--Dictionary of Wholesome Foods
Here is another in a series of occasional healthy lifestyle tips. "The
Dictionary of Wholesome Foods" is a healthy-eating guide that's
not too overwhelming to digest. It provides complete explanations
for all the healthy ingredients out there with accompanying recipes.
The guide can serve as a great shopping aide, quick kitchen reference
or inspiration for a health conscious meal.
"The Dictionary of Wholesome Foods" is a timely addition to the food
reference shelf, one that's desperately needed as mass-marketing of
health food continues to grow. It provides practical guidance on how
to make sense of the burgeoning selection of healthful foods, herbs
and supplements, and provides a concise understanding of the sources,
characteristics, benefits, and uses of health foods. It is also a pure joy
to read and peruse, with its lovely line drawings and quirky, often
playful, descriptions and turns of phrase. The Dictionary of Wholesome
Foods is a personable, compulsively readable guide that includes
historical information and fascinating anecdotes about the many foods
it describes, plus an array of delicious recipes that feature them, such
as Adzuki Rice, Almond Crescents, Pumpernickel Bread, Spinach
with Pignoli and Raisins, and Homemade Yogurt. This is the perfect
shopping companion or armchair read; sure to delight information
seekers and food writing enthusiasts alike.
BTW, you can still pick up your copy of the book "Real Men Cook:
Rites, Rituals & Recipes for Living" by Real Men Cook co-founder K.
Kofi Moyo at a bookstore near you. My recipe, "Big Daddy's Fruit
Salad," is one of the many health conscious dishes featured in the book.
It's on page 8.

Tip...Health Food Shopping Trends
Subject: Healthy Lifestyle Tip...Health Food Shopping
The article below is one in a series of occasional healthy lifestyle tips
that our friends at The Marketing Store are passing along.
Health food shopping trends continue to change as more consumers
demand greater variety in healthy food choices. Current studies indicate
that the majority of American consumers feel that improving health is a
top lifestyle priority. In fact, a recent study gave encouraging news that
about two-thirds of consumers are actually taking steps to improve their
health. Unlike decades before, consumer desires for convenience,
personalization and diet trends are leading to changes in the variety and
types of food choices offered in supermarkets nationwide...
Supermarkets are changing as they respond to the desires of the American
consumer when shopping for food. Perhaps you have noticed some of the
emerging health food shopping trends in favor of all-natural and organic
food products. Connectivity is also an important factor driving consumers,
as there is greater interest in belonging to and shopping with companies
which demonstrate shared values and attitudes. In addition, American
consumers are also looking for health food choices on-the-go when pressed
for time. This hurried lifestyle is also increasing the desire of over half
of US consumers to seek small indulgences to escape the pressures of everyday life. Because of time constraints, time-saving food choices, appliances and prepared meal consumption are also popular. Personalization is also an important consideration when shopping for food. The future will hold promise for consumers having a greater ability to customize and/or co-
create products to suit their preferences.

Brutus is a lifelong human rights activist and poet. He is perhaps
best-known African poet writing in English, although his books were banned
for many years in his home country, South Africa. His tireless work against
apartheid in South Africa got him arrested and shot in 1963. He was sentenced
to an 18-month jail term of hard labor on Robben Island where he broke rocks
with Nelson Mandela. He was sent into exile in 1966 and proceeded to lead the
successful movement to have South Africa and Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) banned
from the Olympics and other international sporting events. Since then he has
remained active in struggles for human and cultural rights, including
co-founding the Pittsburgh Anti-Sweatshop Community Alliance in 2002,
connecting international solidarity with workers to the philosophy of Black
Consciousness. He is currently Professor Emeritus in the Department of
Africana Studies at the University of Pittsburgh. He is a great poet and one

27 Miles for Beau
a benefit to raise funds
Marathoner to run in memory of man he never knew
SOUTH PHILADELPHIA In 2007 there were 392 murder victims in the city of
Philadelphia. That number represents not only 392 people, but 392 lost
opportunities and thousands of affected family and friends. It is a city
whose murder rate surpasses the number of days in a year. These statistics
need to be recognized and action needs to be taken, but this can only be done
through education: educating adults about safety, educating teens about
violence, and educating the world about the lives these victims lead.
Beau Zabel wanted to
educate. He came to Philadelphia on May 5th, 2008 with aspirations to become
a high school math teacher in the School District of Philadelphia. He moved
into my South Philadelphia home and we shared optimism and hope for our soon
to be lives as future teachers. Beau accepted a part time job at a Starbucks
a few blocks from our home and he took pride in his work at his "dream
job". Beau came to Philadelphia with a positive mindset, a comic
personality and a desire to foster change and promote hope through education.
Beau's life was cut tragically short when he became Philadelphia's murder
victim #139 on June 15, 2008. Beau's late night walk home from Starbucks
ended in a fatal robbery that cost him his ipod and his life.
Since June 15th, the citizens of our small South Philadelphia neighborhood,
and others throughout the city of Philadelphia have tried to raise awareness
about Beau's life and ambitions. We have united together to create a reward
fund, neighborhood crime watch, a unification of community, and a nation-wide
search for answers. These efforts have inspired the non-profit organization
Witness Justice to become involved. Kathleen O'Hara, who works on behalf of
victims, was outraged by Beau's murder and wrote an op-ed piece for the
Inquirer, Friday, June 19. (You can go to the link below to read it). She is
a board member of Witness Justice, a national organization committed to
victims' rights. Every year, Witness Justice sends a "Team Heal
Trauma" to the Marine Corps Marathon, to raise awareness of victims of
crime and trauma. This team is comprised of a committed group of runners who
run in honor of these victims of crime. The race is Sunday, October 26, 2008,
in Washington, DC.
Kathleen's article inspired me to respond (along with a number of family and
friends) to thank her for bringing awareness to such a heroic life. Kathleen
informed me about her dedication to finding and sponsoring a runner for this
team and for Beau. Kathleen and I joined efforts to find a sponsor to run for
Team Heal Trauma in honor of Beau Zabel.
Andrew Shanks, the 24 year-old
who will be moving into Beau's empty room, is that runner. Andrew will run
the D.C. Marine Corp Marathon to represent a person he never got to meet but
whose city streets and dreams he shared. By completing this 27-mile run,
Andrew will proudly represent all victims of crime, the city of Philadelphia,
and the heroic life of Beau Zabel.
We have decided to hold a benefit in honor of Beau as well as all victims of
violent crime to raise money to achieve 27 miles.
Proceeds will be
contributed to Witness Justices' sponsorship of Andrew and his goal to run a
race of life that Beau never had the chance to. Proceeds exceeding $1,000.00
will be donated to the Scholarship Fund that Beau's Mother, Lana Zamora, is
creating in his memory.
I invite you and all family and friends to attend the benefit that will take
place at Beau's Starbucks (4th and South Streets) on August 3, 2008 from 4-6
Please feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions or ideas!
I will be sending out a flyer with all the details. I sincerely hope that you
join us and forward this invitation to all of your family and friends.
We hope to see you there
