The importance of radio battery life in prison communities cannot be overstated; the devices are relied on for more than listening to music, hearing about local news and weather, and watching television (TV sets in common areas often use transmitters to broadcast sound on a dedicated frequency). A study conducted at San Vittore prison in Milan, Italy, found that “in a place where privacy is constantly denied, radio becomes a vital tool for building and maintaining one’s private self.” Some inmates even had a term for using their radio to create a bubble of personal space: “I headphone myself,” one said.

"Breaking down stereotypes about Asians is key for many filmmakers, but it's not easy to get money for projects.
"Industry insiders said Asian-themed movies rarely get picked up for traditional distribution because they don't appear profitable.
"Because of this, dozens gathered for a recent forum in Manhattan sponsored by the Asian American Arts Alliance, which encouraged filmmakers to produce their own TV shows, movies and film festivals.
"'It's a challenging economic environment and sometimes the best way to make things happen is to do it yourself,' said Andrea Louie of the Asian American Arts Alliance."

"Magic Johnson and Ron Burkle have invested in Vibe Holdings, the parent of Vibe magazine and the Soul Train TV show. As part of the eight figure deal, Johnson will now be chairman of Vibe Holdings.
By investing in Vibe, Johnson and Burkle are putting a lot of money and power behind the brand, which is sure to attract the attention of competitors Ebony and Jet. It’s also interesting to note that Johnson had previously tried to acquire those magazines, only to have talks break down when he couldn’t settle on a price with their publishing house."

"The last time New York State tried to collect cigarette taxes on Indian lands, 13 years ago, protesters blocked highways upstate and clashed with State Police troopers, who had surrounded reservations to keep cigarettes and other taxable goods from flowing in. After a standoff that dragged on for days, the state relented and scrapped its plan.
"On Wednesday, the state will try again to impose taxes on cigarettes sold in Indian stores, but this time it hopes to avoid any violence. Last week, leaders of the Seneca Nation, which led the protests 13 years ago, vowed at a meeting with law enforcement officials to keep their fighting confined to the courts."

"The key for Williams was a so-called Individual Development Account, which funded tutoring for her daughter and is now helping Williams save for her business.
"Unfortunately, IDAs like the one Williams discovered may be among the best-kept secrets in finance. These amazing accounts, offered in every state, help low-income workers set aside money for education, a first home or starting a business.
"But they're frequently overlooked because the programs are neither standardized nor offered on a national basis. Instead, they're provided through a patchwork of local groups and charities, each of which may have different rules on who can qualify for help and what kind of help they can receive."

This is a fucking shame. - LDP "Of the 600-plus U.S. newspapers in the Nexis database, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (3/9/10) was the only one to publish a news report on the study. Tim Grant’s front-page piece made connections with the local situation, and pointed out that “upper-income black women [were] five times more likely to have received a high-cost mortgage than upper-income white men.” A few days later, NPR Weekend Edition (3/13/10) broadcast an insightful interview with Julianne Malveaux discussing the report. (In alternative media, some of the more prominent coverage came from Latoya Peterson at the blog Racialicious—3/11–24/10—and Democracy Now!’s interview with study author Mariko Lin Chang—3/12/10.)"

" The gallery represents a cross section of official and unofficial Washington, from President Obama to the doorman at the Madison Hotel, from the head of the National Rifle Association to a shoeshine man. There are those who receive their pay in the form of salary and bonuses; there are those who collect theirs in a plastic cup."
