Mom Lost 3 Children to HIV, How She Is Helping Other Moms

106.7 WTLC


World Aids Day red

Connie had to do the unthinkable as a mother. She watched her three children die back to back in 90s. She suspected it was AIDS but did not have the strength to find the cause of their illness.

Obama Shops at Well-Known Washington Bookstore

Black America Web

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is doing his part to support small businesses.

Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha dropped in Saturday at Washington’s Politics and Prose bookstore and purchased what he said was a “long list” of books that included “The Kite Runner,” ”Harold and the Purple Crayon,” and “The Sports Gene.”

The president said he bought a reader for every age, from 5 to 52 — his age. He paid by credit card. The total was not announced.

Obama sent a tweet earlier Saturday about the importance of supporting small businesses.

The Saturday after Thanksgiving has become known as “Small Business Saturday.” It’s designed to drive business to mom and pop shops between the whirlwind of Black Friday sales offered by large retailers and Cyber Monday deals from online sellers.

With Black Friday behind us, we’re now in full-swing holiday shopping season. But before you nab those “can’t be beat” deals, consider my advice about protecting yourself online. Today kicks off the online holiday buying frenzy, meaning cyberscammers are so happy, they’re singing Christmas carols, so I couldn’t be catching you at a more opportune time!

Last year, consumers spent about $1.5 billion on Cyber Monday, up 16% from 2011. Industry experts predict this season will see even more growth. Coupled with the boom in sales is a predicted increase in the amount and severity of online scamming and data theft. So I want to cover a few key points to help everyone minimize their online risk.
