      A New Year is approaching - and, fast!  So, there's no time to linger on 2017s woes.  The year 2018 may just bring something better for us all!

Perhaps our Government ...(maybe not a good chance of hope, here). But there IS hope... for us all.

May the upcoming year bring many great things to your life!

BIG 10

L et's talk a little on what we know for sure about "10; ten" first:

We have ten fingers and toes. Check.

Our number scale is based on "10"...

...and so much more of our lives revolve around "this MAGICAL number [ten]".

Research on the number gave insight in categories of scientific to biblical, and back to an era of time when measurement tools were bones. It was stated, Number ten symbolizes the completion of a cycle; it's relation to our existence runs deep as you see here on this site.

CURRENT CHILDREN

 

 Image result for children and current events

As parents, you are the main source of knowledge for your children; a child will generally get most of their information starting at home, because it IS one of the first places they're learning.

The learning our children get from home is very crucial - they see and learn from you.  Your actions towards and reactions to social issues, historical events, and local/family issues are being watched by your children.

R-T! loves the youth - they ARE our Future, and we wanted to view the ['professionals'] responses on the matter.

So, you know what comes next (smile), research results to share!

Here are a few links we found on keeping your child current; please share:

* http://www.pbs.org/parents/talkingwithkids/news/agebyage_3.html

    * https://www.education.com/slideshow/talk-kids-about-news/

 

STAY ON TOP: Check your child's knowledge of current events; listen for any signs that a discussion may be needed; but, be sure to stay objective to avoid persuading the child's perception of the truth. ...IT'S ONLY FAIR!

#ROYALDAY

 

 photo ROYAL BDAY1b_zpskqngmivh.jpg

OUR BEGINNING: A small group of Extraordinary, ordinary people blogging and
creating a social group of ROYALTY! Being that majority of us worked and had
careers in services: we were providing Royalty across the globe - and it felt
awesome! So awesome that we wanted to reach out even more:
hence, ROYAL-TALK! eZine.
OUR JOURNEYS: As our missions increased, legalities took place, and our Parent
Company came to life as Royalty Publishing LC; under the umbrella of RPLC, our
mission exceeded in many areas of creativity.
RPLC and ROYAL-TALK! eZine combined, offered a worldwide showcase for showcasing
talents, services, and expertise among a universe of Extraordinary Everyday
people.
We gained so many ROYAL Family and Friends over the years, and the relationships
that have grown from our ROYAL events and community fundraisers - will last a
lifetime!
OUR FUTURE: The future is awaited - and with glee! There are great things in
store for the futures of our authors, artists, and columnists; all these
creative hearts had a ROYAL start, part, and/or support - and this, will move
forward as our ROYAL endeavors take flight... for more years to come!
I want to take this time to THANK ALL OF YOU! I Love you at the depths of my
heart, for the support and gratefulness you've shown - and let's continue to
keep it #ROYAL!

 Spring Cleaning:

DIGITAL DE-CLUTTERING

 photo 0320_zpsoev6uuhs.png

 

It's a common activity many do without noticing: keeping our emails, contacts and/or device storage from years ago. Oftentimes, we are forced to clear storage on our devices because we're not able to take photos - SHAME ON YOU!

Here's a quick challenge to help you get started on Spring Cleaning your digital life: Go through your phone, start deleting all the deceased people first (we know you want to hold on to them, you hoarder, but you MUST LET GO!); now, delete the contacts' number(s) that they no longer have (they won't be using it anymore, so WHY DO YOU STILL HAVE IT?); after the contacts, go to your calendar and do the same for events that will no longer be happening. This also applies to your email (poor cluttered mailboxes!).
 
You'll be so surprised at the extra space you'll have on your devices after
Spring Cleaning - and now, you have more space for all your fun Summer photos,
contacts, and events! Try challenging yourself every month, until it becomes a habit; you can thank R-T! later (smile).

LOVE

Change is the only constant we have, other than our connection to each other as living, breathing humans. And as long as we focus on the things that divide us rather than the things that bind us, we will not be reaching our full potential as humans or citizens of this country. While some of us may feel more excited and some more scared, we are all united in our hope for our brighter tomorrow. But unless we act, hope is all it will ever be.

Moments of major change are also moments of great opportunity. No matter what side of the line we’re on, this changing of the guard is a chance to effect positive change and to offer the people around us more generosity, kindness, and patience. But we have to take action.

 

 

 photo beWellBUZZ_Logo1_zpsrfoxzggk.jpg

 

We are at the precipice of an enormous opportunity. We can either use this as an excuse to spread hate, judgment, and divisiveness, or as a chance to spread love, hope, and joy.

Continuing to love no matter what isn’t easy, but it’s always worthwhile.

START

 

Restart With The New Year, Change When Needed

     But why start [New Year] then?.. to acheive a certain weight, size, rank, style, fashion, or any other acheivement you make a resolution for; why wait until a specific time, when you have a choice to CHANGE - at ANY MOMENT? Let's look at a definition for resolution :

 

 photo IMG_4158_zpsywwhh9nj.png

     Per definition, a resolution (n.) is a firm decision for change; (v.) is a solution to a problem.

 

I want to take a quick moment to ask of those who have made resolutions:

     [Is ] what you are 'changing', a "problem" ?

 

Our celebrated New Year comes every turn of a year - and with the same economical and social discrepencies from the year(s) before...  (in only - [these] could reset with the restart of each year...)

The year restarts without a "choice" of any---, nor force, yet so many weigh heavily on this day to [want to] change; as if the new year magically provides something better in life.

Read more about the history of New year's Resolutions.

Being human grants us free will to "restart" at any given moment - and without force. So, why start for the new year, when you can start anywhere on the calendar and/or clock!

However, Seafood and sea kelp are a good source of iodine which is an essential requirement for O type people as these people tend to suffer from a sluggish metabolism and low thyroid. A diet well supplemented with iodine rich foods are good for them. O blood type people benefit from exercise, lots of it. Aerobics, jogging, power walking, and weight training is best for them.

 photo november1_zpsmjzemhil.jpgVOTE

 As a child growing up in America, I remember being excited about elections and couldn't wait to be able to cast my vote. The nostalgia surrounding being a black American, with the [privilege] to vote - after so many struggles and murders of our native descendants, was nearly breathtaking. It was also life changing - every time. (I'm smiling here)
As years have passed, elections and the processes affiliated with them have changed before our very eyes. Promos have went from reasonable insights to help the vote lean a certain way, to propaganda dragging each opponent through the mud.

 

 photo VOTING1_zpsurqj9bye.jpg


During a time when we are at multiple wars (physically and socially) across Nations, among multitudes of people, there is no space for errors. Our Nation needs a leader with a mindset FOR THE PEOPLE - NOT A SPECIFIC DEMOGRAPHIC!
Keeping in mind of how much our descendants endured to ensure a right to take part in a life changing experience, it should be NO EXCUSES for NOT EXERCISING THIS RIGHT! "Do your part for the solution, unless you are a part of the problem"

BALANCE. If you don't know the definition, it's suggested that you find a dictionary - and quick!
Everything about our existence involves balance: from our bodies, to the things surrounding us.
And this, people, IS the "reality "... two forces creating a balance, to create a type of 'wholeness'.
For example, a battery has both, negative and positive charges to work.
Our entire existence is consumed by balance.
So, why are people fighting the reality of the balance? Knowing that wherever they go, all things will keep a balance.
We often see a balance of reality being tested when parents [neglect] take family for granted while chasing goals; may it be business or personal - maybe even both. But the reality of it is: when one's main focus is on ONE [thing], SOMEthing ELSE is being neglected.
This is not to say anything negative to the balance, or about this balance in our realities. The focus is to bring a bit of light on keeping and maintaining this balance, to survive our realities. {N'Hopes that it does} ~Ronyae

LOST FREEDOMS IN AMERICA:

Modern Day Lynching

 

RONYAE, Staff Writer

     For centuries, the ability to live peacefully and productively was a determined struggle.
Descendants of many, fought hard - some even losing lives - to accomplish what we have (without mention) today:
    FREEDOM OF SPEECH
    FREEDOM TO VOTE
    ...  ...  ...

For every [fought for] freedom we are to have, it is either barely achieved, or disregarded.
But what makes it worse, are those who don't appreciate that freedom. 

 

 photo 25ofINTERNET_zpsqxjaawli.jpg

 

Examples of this can possibly be our current election; recent crimes; corrupt official agencies, and, the list could go on.
Wars have taken various faces, and having modern technology strengthen the weapons. Lives can be destroyed by the push of a button.

Today, wars against the freedoms America was built on, and those commonly shared with other countries are creating a noose around our societies.
Assaults on individuals for being just that: individuals.
A form of punishment because you can't be "controlled"... A hanging like our history has told of - a system deemed to maintain [peace and productivity] the American Dream.  The main stage for much of this punishment happens online - the brave mavado people get behind a person-less screen, and keyboard... judging beyond any educated magistrate may comprehend.
But, as long as we as FREE individuals,use that FREEDOM to do more just and righteousness, rather than hate and hurt - it's possible to "LOOSE THE NOOSE!"  Join us on the ROYAL BLAWGHz, discussing "Freedoms We Have, But Aren't FREE"; what's yours? Share your #ROYALTALK!

CANADA

     B ordering the entire northern area of the United States, and in some places - just a road's width away, Canada's lifestyle can seem like a 180-degree change from the United States of America: the residents talk much differently (using the 'old' English language); the currency is much different than the American dollar; and majority of the enforcement regimen travel on horseback... but, even with those prominent differences, Canada has its troubles like the rest of the world: crime, scandals, and mouth-dropping residential shenanigans.

Knowing that beyond Canada's pristine image for being good-natured, we knew all Canadians weren't such good neighbors - and R-T! set out to find the dirt. This report isn't to shine a negative light on Canada, but to enlighten us on how this world is filled with good and bad - and although Canada has its share of both, it focuses on preserving the GOOD. (Something we all need to focus on striving toward - as a nation)

While digging, we were lead to a website holding news for various areas in Canada.  We were shocked at the vast amount of crime and civil suits happening.  The good neighbor face had drooped, as residents committed crimes after crimes against their fellow Canadians - they weren't ANY better, they were handling these issues "better".  America handles many issues on its face of being a democratic nation.  But is that always suitable for EVERY issue?

We kept digging for more differences on Canada and the U.S.  The digging pulled up a very interesting share, Why Canadians Think Americans Are Idiots.  Imagine running across that!  For such labeled people as being "submissive, and good-natured", how could they ever think anything negative, you ask?  Well, they have a few opinions they have shared... but they aren't [that] harsh.

In light of support for our Good Neighbours in the North, we would like to help celebrate Canada Day, which is July 1st.  After receiving the knowledge on this special day, it was a light bulb moment - that Canada's birthday is in the same month as America's... Hmmm. [Independence is in the air!]

DRIVING

    I, alongside the EducatorLabs team, have been teaching about driving safety long before the problem amassed to what it is today. The CDC estimates that over a thousand people are injured every day in accidents as the result of distracted driving. Let’s put an end to this frightening epidemic.

Share these resources, please, to encourage everyone to keep their eyes and ears on the road so that we can all get to our destinations safely.     -Jasmine

 

If it feels like you’re often driving next to motorists whose mind is focused on anything but the road, you’re right.

After a near-collision last week with someone who appearedto be texting behind the wheel, I did some research and came across the following resources:


Distracted Drivers Feel Addicted to Technology Behind the Wheel
There is a very disturbing reason we feel the need to use our phones when we’re behind the wheel – we have become so addicted to technology that we depend on it even when we know it’s dangerous to do so.


Hands-free Devices Distract Drivers for 27 Seconds After Use
Although those of us who enable hands-free devices in our vehicles have the best intentions, these gadgets don’t make us immune to being distracted and putting ourselves, and others in harm’s way.


Road Rules for Little Passengers
Our little ones can be a source of distraction while driving if we don’t exercise extreme caution while they’re in the car. Help to ensure that your children travel safely with these important tips.
 
How to Keep Your DogSafe in the Car
I frequently travel with my dog in the front seat. I never realized how this is not only an unsafe practice for my dog, but is also a constant source of distraction for me even on quick trips!
 
Distracted Driving Awareness Month
This deadly issue has become so prevalent that the National Safety Council has named April as Distracted Driving Awareness Month.
 
Drugged Driving Prevention: Intervention Techniques to KeepThem Out of the Driver's Seat
Driving under the influence of drugs is more prevalent than ever, and to say that driving under the influence of drugs decreases our ability to be alert is a huge understatement. This informative guide offers an action plan for anyone concerned their loved ones are involving themselves in this dangerous practice. 

Best,
Kathleen

BUYER BEWARE

 Before I start my rant, I must defend myself by stating that I have not had an Online Shopping 101 course; my [typically] forced online shopping came with ordering supplies from Walmart, Staples or Office Depot/Max. I'm not ashamed to say that it NEVER went too far from that (other than the occasional Hungry Howies order).

After my original plan to have my wedding dress custom made fell through, the only solution I could see was to shop online. I didn't go with the first website I clicked, because I had a certain design in mind - no- it was THE design I was going to have, no questions.
Scrolling through the different dresses and websites, I noticed the prices... I would be saving alot of money buying a dress online. I found one, exact design I wanted and a good price. The item could be custom color and sized. I had a winner! I selected options, made specific note on the color and measurements, and hit PURCHASE. I felt good about my first major online shopping experience.
The following day, the company had emailed me, asking for specific color and size (I thought I had just put that in the requested order notes); this should have raised a flag, but it didn't. I DID REALIZE I WAS DEALING WITH A RETAILER [FROM] CHINA. I repeated my specifics, and included photos of what I wanted as the color.
Needless to say, my wedding dress came in a color so far from my choice (and photo), I couldn't wear or use it for ANYTHING! My problem wasn't theirs, even if they were the cause of my problem. SeaDressy.com was deliberately telling me "Oh well, not our fault!", as the emails replied, "you need better lighting; it is the color you chose; it is the right size; etc."
I even reminded them of their return policy, "if we have made mistake, we will refund price..." Their 'refund' wasn't even the cost of the international fee they charge most banking customers. So, it would look as if I was out my money and my dress.
I'm not one to rollover and accept wrong - and I called the bank!
Not everyone is as lucky as some who are able to have the backup of a bank or credit card company. For those who have been victimized, I sympathize with you. But I hope you have learn a valuable letter like I have, from shopping online - looking for a good deal, and ending up on the wrong end of the money.

I'm sharing this experience to warn every shopper - BEWARE of the companies and retailers online; many may have an US address, but your items are being made, boxed, and shipped from China Peoples Republic! As I became more aware of this issue, I started noticing key points to let me know I'm not only dealing with a foreign retailer, but majority of the online retailers are the same corporation/owners.

KEY POINTS TO NOTICE RETAILERS IN CHINA (Regardless if they have US address) sites:

MONEY photo money sign in dollars_zpsgczpbz8i.jpg


     C an you imagine using peppercorn and barley to pay for something? Well, it was once the only 'form' of "money"; but, can you imagine your government telling you how to spend your money, or how much of it you can 'possess'?

If you can't imagine, then you will have to deal with it anyway - The American Dream isn't just for your benefit, it's for America. It's what [assumingly] keeps the American economy in 'good' standing.

America's economy is based on its citizens; if people are making or have money, they'll spend it - or save it in a financial institution.  Both ways are main examples of growing the America's economy: taxes from sales and use; banks to keep the flow of currency (see links).

Read what your money says: "A note... to pay ALL debts... publicly and privately... But, if you spend [use] a certain amount [notes], you'll be in trouble! Now, how is that for a kicker!?  Let's say you have a [PRIVATE] 'debt' of $15,000, if you use your money for this debt and have no [proof] account of it, you're liable to be guilty of criminal activity - simply by suspicion.

That's where most confusion comes from - the amount of money a person [allowed] spend.

So, what is money?.. It's TO BE SPENT! But, on the other hand, it's something that is meant to grow AMERICA's economy - and nobody else's, so be careful what you spend (and where)!

Would you say America's economic outline was designed by bullies? SHARE YOUR #ROYALTALK!

  As we all know, neither one of these STDs are curable, but can be prevented. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), About 50,000 people get infected with HIV each year. In 2010, there were around 47,500 new HIV infections in the United States... and, the numbers are growing.

"Despite twenty-six years of research, activism, and education, the HIV/AIDS pandemic continues to affect the lives of millions worldwide..." An article by Ng Elizabeth states.

Taking in consideration of the number of lives this has touched, and the number of years this has taken ...so many are still asking the question: "When will it all end?" But that's not the question we should be asking...

AIDS/HIV Prevention can be found any- and everywhere; online, at doctors' offices, health departments, and even in your Public Libraries. So access to the knowledge isn't lacking...

What's lacking are the moral decisions sexual individuals are utilizing.

Practicing "Safe Sex" is more than just wearing protection - have enough decency to stay stafe, until you are married; if you cannot stop having multiple partners - STAY SAFE!  Sometimes, our youth are pressured by their peers, media, and rather you recognize it or not - even at home.  This is not a smart start if it's in the home.  But what can start in the home, is preparing and training your child(ren) how to deal with peer pressures.

There is alot to know about sex, rather than the motions and feelings - there is plenty of permanent damage that comes from exchanging bodily fluids. (Let that sink in for a minute, the next time someone looks good [enough] "to eat"; remember: "You are what you eat").

If you have more questions, or need statistics of any STDs, the CDC is the best place to start.  Let's end this year with a newfound respect for others, and start a new year for 2016 to be the beginning of "GIVING LIFE... THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING"!

Sad numbers, I know. To make the situation even more of a travesty, our Veterans are being pushed against a wall.  According to reports, Senate GOP Obstructionists Throw Veterans Under The Bus-Vote Down Bill To Help Vets In Need Of Jobs (posted 9/23/2012 @ 4:29PM)

So, as a grateful citizen of the United States of America, I’m asking why is it so complicated to [GOP] agree on wanting to preserve the lives of our UNSUNG American Heroes – our American Veterans, who clearly deserve some sort of “gratitude”?

 

We’ve shed light on our American Vets, but there are many UNSUNG HEROES in our daily lives; take time to appreciate them: pharmacists, nurses, veterinarians, pastors/ministers, DJs, authors, teachers, and even our pets!  Join this month’s ROYAL BLAWHG, to share your hero story, or just give a shout out to your cape-less hero!

This COMMON SENSE bus has seats for the males, too! Just because the song says treat her like a ["hoe"], doesn't mean all females want to be disrespected. If a male pulled up at my house back in the day playing that vulgar crap, he had less chance of a second date than getting a noise pollution ticket. Common sense is that ability to see how a female wants to be treated in her actions, and if that's bad - you might want to turn and run in another direction... didn't your Grandmother tell you better than that!

See, the reason I'm targeting you - the males and females, is because you're the core to festering social blister. Rather you realize it or not, or even care about any of it, you are the reason behind the "problem". Your support of the songs, gives not only the power of play, but also the life of it. Look at it like this: if you don't purchase/download the songs, there is no money to be made from the songs; if the social bandwagon would stop repeating what the songs are portraying, the fad would stop. The more you promote the sex, violence, crime, and other negativities through your everyday living, the more it will flow out into the mainstream.

COMMON SENSE is, and has been knocking... everytime you sneak to hear, play or dance to such X-rated songs; everytime you feel ashamed, or even bad about the lyrics - enough that you don't repeat them around others. That same COMMON SENSE should open you up to the choice to use the song for what it is - purely entertainment - and, not your lifestyle. Heck, sometimes, maybe even majority of the time, the lifestyles being rapped about (now-a-days) aren't those of the rapper(s)... Let that sink in.

In closing, I want to return to my beginning statement: the downfall of a society is not from rap music (or its culture), it's from those supporting it, and allowing it to create a lifestyle for themselves. Even though, and when COMMON SENSE tells [shows] them otherwise.

But, before I go, I have to add the response to the issue cover headline: CATCH YOUR RIDE.. several people expressed everyone wasn't 'able' to get on the COMMON SENSE bus; there are some people who just 'don't have [it]'. What are your thoughts on this, do you agree? Share your #ROYALTALK on the blog. (Click the school bus image above).

TERRI RENE`: I found one of the best ways to learn, and be successful in the music industry is by listening to words of wisdom from people who have already been there - and made it through. The biggest word is to be HUMBLE and love the gift God has placed upon you. 

     photo B91B8D96-6C5D-40FC-A7C3-5C746F9C1ACD_zpswqi4ahdy.jpg  I have been singing since I was a young girl, but I didn’t realize the talent and my gift of creating or composing [writing] music that I was singing until a year ago.  There were many crossroads in my life. But my greatest accomplishment was winning my battle with cancer - and being able to conceive a child, when the doctors said I wouldn’t. …I am a 14-year cancer survivor. It was hard for me to talk about it because I was scared to even mention the word CANCER, but now I feel I can let my music speak for me and let others know that God had a plan for me to bring the “feel good” music to everyone.

To have a career in the music industry, you have to believe in yourself, have self discipline, listening and respecting anyone who values your worth. My mom, coach, and family says, “You always need a team to be great..."

Putting the tools together to grow your foundation is very important; money helps tremendously, but if you don’t have it your team will raise it. Fundraisers, mini concerts, bake sales and dinners, raffle tickets and even donations are a blessing when you are getting started! READ MORE!

INDEPENDENCE: Even though we misspelled the word at first, we soon realizedthe mistake...

INDEPENDENCE...? (cont.)

What Are You Celebrating For?

RONYAE, Staff Writer

A Pastor spoke on the celebration and meaning, stating it was considered as "[America] Liberty from oppression..."

To paraphrase, the birth of America, a declaration of Independence was designated for the 4th day of July; celebrations were to be had - and, continued as a remerberance in honor of such a great event.

Over the years, just as some traditions do, the celebrations to HONOR the event have become a commercialized occasion: no one knows why they're celebrating on this special day, and have thus diminished the title established to just calling it the 4th of July.

Take time to learn the history around you, even if you want to dispute it - know it, to judge it; educate our youth on American history - they're going to need it to stay armed with knowledge! What are your thoughts on independence, have you claimed your independence from a certain oppression? Share your comments in this month's ROYAL BLAWHG!     -STAY ROYAL!

IMPRISONED FATHERS... (Cont.)

Imprisoned Doesn't Always Mean Incarcerated

RONYAE, Staff Writer

 

Where's the "Happy" in a falsely incarcerated Father's Day? To be without his children, and not be able to visually and physically enjoy the truest blessing of the day - his children, is a damper on the joyous occasion. Sure, he may get the cards, gifts and visits. But through a heart-wrenching smile, these 'reminders' hurt sometimes more than help... And at other times, they are the only thing to keep a person going - so don't stop showing love!
Imprisoned doesn't always mean incarcerated. There are some Fathers locked down by the shackles of un-appreciation. Not being appreciated nor respected by their children - and oftentimes, because of reactions from their Mothers. JOIN THE ROYAL BLAWHG, and share your opinions, thoughts, and comments on the subject!

"#Uplifting Families of Prisoners: Our Journey"

Cover Story by RONYAE, Staff Writer

You always 'hear' it, but it doesn't really sink in until you actually have to deal with: "Not everyone is going to feel the same way as you [idea]..." Well, the team of supporters travelling on tour met with this fact face-to-face. It wasn't so much of a disappointment, than a slap in the face. Simply because we had raised our hopes beyond the scale - because we felt it was a dire need in our society. We soon realized not EVERYONE would feel the same... Being introduced to a person whom stood in a light of being an advocate of all things created [God], we found someone completely against supporting inmates of any kind. "The need should be BEFORE they're incarcerated..." is what we were told. The point could be respected, and understood... but... what about--? It's just an eye-opener, and a wake up call to enlighten us. That's why the team ensured ROYAL-TALK! before releasing this information, the rejection was considered as constructive criticism, and the journey to support the efforts of non-profit Heart2Home, and its program continues!

HOME IS WHERE THE H.E.A.R.T. IS 

Our nation has seemed to be falling backwards (yes, I said it); world peace that was once fought for is disappearing - and, fast. But like I always say, "pointing a finger at someone/thing else always has three more pointing back at yourself..."

I want to use this month's platform to speak on others in an industry such as myself: the media - the journalistic hounds that MUST KEEP THE PEOPLE INFORMED. But keeping others informed doesn't always mean creating havoc for the boost of ratings, or destroying a person's image for the sake of awards or recognitions. It's definitely ringing true that money is the root of all evil, but what monies have been spent to pay for the blood that has been spilled by something seen or heard by the media?

As a fellow journalist, I scream THIS MUST STOP! Stop the bullying with the tv cameras and recorders - go back to the truth of journalism: getting the truth! All this nonsense trying to force a point of view on a nation is ripping us apart! Signed, Still Hopeful for a Great Nation.

Happily Enjoying All Relations Throughout ...

IS DETROIT MOVING FORWARD?

RONYAE, Staff Writer

Since 2008, the Motor City officially claimed a downfall... or was it crying wolf? Hitting the streets to talk to residents proved confusing: "If the city was broke - going into bankruptcy, why was so much 'spending' happening?"

In the midst of this financial crisis, residents grumbled on new official vehicles being purchased, needed road work, political pay raises, and the continuous loss of schools, fire departments, and all the while fearing for their safety as more and more abandoned homes grew up around their neighborhoods.

Now, it's 2014... the city is still spending tax payers' money on what seems to be "un-useful" for its residents: as in new LED street lights. Leaving residents to ask, "why not spend the money on better roadways; more police officers, emergency officials, and even the school system?" Not to mention the national attention the city received after the attempt to solve a water bill crisis... although many fingers pointed in all sort of directions, nothing was changing for the better - but it [plan of action] was outlined to do so.

Bit by bit, and day-by-day, the city is in an attempt to move forward through the storm.

Recently, as part of the plan of action, the city has started auctioning homes; an outside source has partnered to help the water situation, and another philanthropist has stepped in to purchase a large amount of abandonded properties.

Could this be the help The Motor City needs to return to the flourishing city it once was, or is this just a small attempt that will be a band-aid for this seemingly dilapidating turn of events for The "D"?

Acknowledge and recognize these gadgets are simply tools to enhance, or assist your daily activities, living, and communication - they are NOT, I REPEAT, THEY ARE NOT REPLACEMENTS.  Somehow, I feel I should go more into detail on the term "replacement'; the gadgets are helpful in a manner that they 'replace' [older] more outdated ways/forms of doing things, but they should NOT replace you actually going to visit your grandparents.  Sure, emailing pictures are fast, simple and almost cost-saving.  But who is it really helping if grannies don't have computers, let alone an email...?  Hmmm.  Do you understand a certain angle this article covers?  I'm hoping so!

So, with this summer vacation, or holiday trips & events your families participate in, it's a great thing to be able to quickly snapshot, video or record these precious moments to remember forever; an even better advantage is being able to upload them to a cloud storage.

In either case, and in any way - nothing truly matters if the only memories you'll have are from the images and videos, and not from actually participating in the events yourself.

Let the posting and updating wait until the day's events have ended, and you are peacefully in your own surrounding.  In other words, sometimes other people get a bit irritated at you constantly neglecting your surroundings because you're too engrossed into some gadget!  Stop being in such an 'iWorld'(c)RONYAE06, and join the REAL WORLD!

According to a Teen Drivers: Fact Sheet by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the leading cause of teen deaths are associated with automobiles. Looking for numbers? These were released by the CDC: "In 2010, about 2,700 teens in the United States aged 16–19 were killed and almost 282,000 were treated and released from emergency departments for injuries suffered in motor-vehicle crashes."

 

 photo drivingdistractions3_zps3c7094f5.jpg

 


With these facts, it helps to tip the scale towards my opinion that young drivers are just that: young... in every aspect of the term when it comes to operating a motor vehicle, let alone trying to multitask. But they are not alone when it comes to distracted driving, adults are guilty of it too. While, I'm on an opinionated roll, I'll add that some adults (even if they've been driving for years) aren't good at multitasking. Imagine a person almost causing an accident simply by adverting their attention to change the radio station, or the temperature.
Distracted driving isn't targeted to a certain age, nor limited to gender, race, or beliefs.
The best way to conquer distracted driving, is to avoid it.

Just as society has misguidedly persuaded us to label parents ‘refusing’ obligations as being “deadbeats”, I wanted to label females of this sort of nature as “deadbeats”, but according to Wikipedia: “a deadbeat parent is a pejorative term referring to parents of either gender who evades court ordered child support obligations.” … this doesn’t necessarily apply to female parents who have no court orders involved in their “non-participation”. So, this leaves me with a bit of confusion. Do we even acknowledge females who have given up their “entitlement”? Are they Mothers?

Join our monthly blog on the subject…

Of course ROYAL-TALK! had to do what we’re known best for doing, and that’s getting to the facts! Not forgetting our major purpose for this showcasing magazine: to help bridge gaps.

While researching facts for deadbeat moms, helpful information was obtained. There are websites to locate deadbeat parents, nationally. Check this website for your city and state, or one you need to research: http://www.criminalwatch.com/deadbeat/default.asp . There is also a website to help take action deadbeat moms in particular.

FEBRUARY, 2014

Before the market crash, Ken stated homes were being purchased for $60-75,000, and today some homes are being sold at a mere $10-15,000. But Ken warns, "the prices are going to rise." Of course the fingers are being pointed towards the economy crashing for the down turn of Detroit's real estate market. The fingers may have a point (pun intended), seemingly because the economic problems set off a chain reaction effect - especially due to "bad mortgage dealings".

 

But, just because the economy has taken a horrible hit, it doesn't have to deter the dreams of many Americans wanting to invest in their futures. According to Ken, property is a tangible asset. He says, "more land, more ownership"... which is something people should want more of!

 

In an effort to help support those who wish to invest in their futures, and spend their money on something other than name brand clothing, and short-term purchases ROYAL-TALK! will share information to help persuade your investment in tangible property. Nothing feels complete like having spent your money, and being able to see where your money has gone -- and, not only that, but it is something fulfilling to know that you have something to fall back on, if and when you ever need the cash! We cannot stress enough on one word that means so much: INVEST!

When you INVEST in property, it doesn't necessarily mean that you must move out of your present residence; it simply means to invest in property to gain ownership of something tangible, that will generate income in various ways.

Where will you be living?

 

 photo KEN2whatstreetwillyouliveon_zpscc2c03c2.jpg
 

 

After doing some research, and speaking with Ken, ROYAL-TALK! received some helpful info to shed some light on questions you may have.

According to a CNN report, "Home ownership means you no longer pay monthly rent for the roof over your head. You can do what you want with your house (within reason). When you leave, you can sell it to recoup the purchase price and - with any luck - earn a profit too."  You can find important information to help you when deciding to purchase property/real estate, on the website: http://money.cnn.com/magazines/moneymag/money101/lesson8/index2.htm

Real estate investment has always been a way for people to make money, and it is not uncommon to buy a house or land without any intention of living there. Some people simply buy and hold property, waiting for it to appreciate in value before re-selling it. Having cash for a down payment is the quick and easy way to enter the real estate market.

 photo KENDestroyingblackwealth_zps34e40945.jpg(Shared via website)

ROYAL-TALK! is sharing links to sites with information on what you should know when buying property.  This sites gives you details on the things you should know: http://realof.com/things-you-should-know-about-buying-a-home.html.

According to Ken, there are websites that cater to your search for this type of investment.  ROYAL-TALK! was able to find a site that will help your search, no matter where you are located.

Don't waste your hard earned income this year... invest in your future!  Start here: http://www.realtor.com/

If your resolution for 2014 is all about making the most of your dollars, Tune in to Ken's weekly radio show (starting March 6th), "All About The Benjamins"  Thursday nights, 8-9PM on WHPR/TV33!

Of course ROYAL-TALK! loves to dig for something deeper… a search to find out whether the first image of a snow person represents the Fathers that were away fighting a war could be the symbol… or, could this snow person be someone seen coming in from a winter storm - bringing good [tidings]? The curiosity didn’t lead to much positive, other than the spiritual connection of the meaning of the snowman.

 photo snowman55_zpsa2686b8f.jpg

Aside of the dark image renditions researched and found of a snowman’s character, ROYAL-TALK! will continue to keep the positive image of the snowman.

There were no other findings that could give a more definitive description of the history for a snowman.

YUNG PRONTO

The life of a career as an artist is simply put by Pronto, "Keep going - NEVER giving UP!" Included in his points, Pronto also suggests having videos to help your career as an artist. But in no fancy language, he warned the death of a career would be a lack of education. Pronto's words come with force and common sense, "If you can't read and write, you can't rap". Adding, "Do good in school"!

 

Not everyone has a 9-5 job, or a way of making money to support a career as an artist. Especially in the beginning, money is definitely needed. If the budget is small, or near zero, Pronto suggests to try and get an engineer that believes in what you're doing; without an understanding engineer, you're pretty much screwed. A good support system is also needed: what good is having the skills, and nobody to listen, or buy your music? Pronto definitely hit the nail on the head with that. His first performance received more 100 hits online, but Pronto admits the numbers are not always that high, and by his third performance maybe half of that number gave him his props.

 

Once you've gotten the support, engineering assistance, and the drive (including education) to make a go at being an artist, now you have to make it do what it do! Pronto shared his knowledge on how to build an audience, and stated, "You must know your songs..." and adding, "rock the stage! You have to entertain the crowd; have a stage presence." This is very true, because nobody wants a boring show of somebody standing in one spot like they're in the studio booth.

 photo YUNGPRONTOBullfrg2_zps6d0b8cb1.jpg

 

Pronto's words of wisdom can become a poster for anyone wanting to be an artist: "Believe in a higher power and GET OUT THERE!" Not forgetting to add the truest fact of them all for success: PROMOTE! His greatest influence would be Big Sean of Detroit.

 

Pronto balances his life versus business by being stabilized... in other words, he has a J-O-B; being a family man keeps him grounded, and grinding! Pronto says his writing keeps him balanced as well.

COVER STORIES

NEW WAVE OF COMMUNICATION

The first positive trend would be elctronic miracles of re-connecting with family members, and being able to share special moments and memories with loved ones with distant miles between them. Today, small children can easily show grandparents love via the internet; video and chat messages have nearly become an everyday form of communicating.

 

The media industry has also taken advantage of the new wave, and are taking news and radio shows to the web. But before we share this issue's feature on Vinny Ricco, radio show anchor at Raw Radio X, ROYAL-TALK! will extend a suggestion to using the internet in a positive way.

 

This year is coming to an end, and with that - a new one is approaching; take this time of change as an opportunity to make your life tools work for you in a more positive manner. It's okay to send a message or holiday greeting to your family, friends, and loved ones via social networks. But nothing touches the heart like something tangible, that can be physically admired from a nightstand, or a mantle (smile)... or, maybe even from a photo album! If your budget doesn't fit this grand gesture, it's safe to say whatever you [send] could also be an electronic miracle! Happy Holidays from ROYAL-TALK! and the entire Royalty Publishing LC Family! 

Taking part in the new wave of communication is radio show anchor Vinny Ricco of RawRadioX.com!  Here's his story:

 photo VINNYRICCOSHOW_zps497b3305.jpg

I have been a radio host/co-host for about 2 years, everyone told me I'd be great on the Radio for as long as I can remember.. I actually started because of a big push from my girlfriend/Robin Overmyer... It was always in the back of my mind. I was in bands/Mgt./Promoter for years before this.

The Basic Essentials to be a good radio host is to research and always get your guests names right and be polite and be a GREAT HOST (like me)... The essentials are simple I never get a name right I don't research (I want to know the back story) so I do a sorta behind the music type radio interview and I'm not always polite.

I've been in and around Detroit all my life I've seen them come and go by the thousands, I have had connections with multiple people in all kinds of genres, the company I worked for back in the day, "Detroit Choppers" on the "Motley Crew" reunion about ten yrs ago / my good friend Hugo Ferrara is the lead singer of "Tantric"/I was in the movie 8 Mile along side of Eminem, I've kicked it with the best and the worse.

Well I'm not going to tell anyone a sugar coated story/but the entertainment business is pretty hardcore cut throat business. If you want to be on the radio as a DJ or MC you need to go and learn in some type of school or program, and if you get lucky, and work your ass off, you can pretty much do what you put your mind to.

The life of this game is meeting the coolest and successful people and when you meet them you see that they are just like you and I. The death of this game is not having a thick enough skin to ward off the haters.

As a career you need to have experience with people, tech schooling and life experiences.

To build our audience, we created and passed out flyers, took out ads, and spread the word, but I will tell you we started out with $150....

Words of Wisdom???.... Hmmmm Stay loyal to yourself and your fans, support your fellow hosts, and remember you can not do this by yourself, you need your crew behind you.

My greatest influences are Arthur Pentahallow, Doug Podell, Travis Barker, Steve Boyce from Wildfire Mgt., LLC.

How I balance my life versus business..... my life is my business.

Thank you for the interview we would love to have you on our show real soon, remember big announcement in January, Robin Overmyer and our friend Jennifer (Snowbunnie) won't even tell me yet... but your magazine will be the first to know.

MOTIVATED SUPERWOMEN

 

ROYAL-TALK! asked Sandee, Operating Manager of George's Famous Coney Island in Southwest Detroit, to share her story of what it means to take the pledge of looking out for her parents.  Here's her story:

My name is Sandee; I was born and raised in Detroit.  I work at George's Famous Coneyisland, for my Dad and Mom.

The coney has been here since 1917, but we just got it almost 8 months ago; we have 11 employees. My Dad had alot of jobs before getting the restaurant. He always wanted his own restaurant for a long time; he used to work at his parents' restaurant when he was younger. He's been working at Chryslers Corporation since 1972, and he still works there, now.

I was working at George's Famous Coneyisland, and my Dad and Mom would eat there almost everyday. They really liked the place, and made a good deal to get it.

The perks working for my Dad and Mom are great - I feel like my job is secure, and that's a relief in a time when it's hard to get a job, and keep it.

I don't feel like it's a downfall because when you really want something, you have to work hard to get it and even harder to keep it. We have Facebook: Georges Coneyisland, Instagram: Georges Coneyisland, and twitter: @Georges_Famous.
