In an age where reference research no longer requires a library card, but rather a well-oiled pointer finger and a high-speed internet connection for streaming YouTube clips with ease, many have labeled this generation a post-literate one.

In response, Booker Mattison, author of Unsigned Hype, is using the new medium of hip hop literature to captivate an audience of young, web-savvy, music loving, hip hop heads enough to resign them from their video IPods for a few hours to pick up a 224-page novel.

The millihelen is sometimes jokingly defined as the scientific unit of human beauty. This derives from the legend of Helen of Troy as alluded to in Christopher Marlowe's The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus, "Was this the face that launched a thousand ships...?" The millihelen is therefore the degree of beauty that can launch one ship. Beheld. Measured. Manipulated. Since the era of Pythagoras and Greek philosophy, this has been the order in which we relate to beauty.

There’s no wonder that the onset of beauty-centric reality shows have inspired a brand new fixation on the intricacies of the external. One particular show from Hades is the all new, highly irritating ABC show intended to replace Beauty and The Geek. Drum roll, please…True Beauty.

While men who seek to take advantage of women in the church are wrong, women have got to take the responsibility of not putting herself in a position to get played.

People say the strangest things to pregnant women. I know this because I am pregnant myself, and people have been popping out of the woodwork to say strange things ever since I declared myself, around the 3-month mark, to be with child.
I am in the process of reading the book titled 'The Power of A Praying Woman' by Stormie Omartian. In the course of our day we as women are constantly being pulled in many directions and by many people (our husband's, father's & mother's, children, extended family, church family, boss, ministry, friends) and the list goes on. As a result of all this pulling and tugging; it forces us into our prayer closet to talk to God. However, once we get there we intercede on behalf of everyone except ourselves. And this is what this book is all about.
